' Why llenry,irlial„ is the matter ? she
inquired, • What makes 1,-on so pale ?'
Assuming a more tragic Viiice r I re

She gave a hurried glance backward,

the deep breathing, which when heard in
the forests of the north, causes the wild

`• I did not know there were any wolves

I replied, but it smns we were mistaken

said. But the sheer; had no appaite fur

Fanny; saying, • Drive for your life! I will

While I held my fiat over her face that
she might not see the dreadful deception

She fainted the moment n•e were over
taken by the wolves, and without trying
to revive her, I turned the horses home

mere knowledge of books is the begin-
ning'und end of cdtication. The ions,

nui with notion, in idleness, as it were:
with little idea of the responsibilities that

What a Boy Hnow•s ithout tobner2.
. WHEN a lobster shakes hands with you
yon always know when it takes hold, and
are exceedingly: glad when it gets done.—,
Tay have small features, and lay no
clams to good looks. When they toed
m ire they resemble a small boy shuffling
off in his father's boots. They are back
ward. They occasionally leave it row like
people, and in the mede lose a member . ,
but l have the faculty of growing out an
other. The process is patented both in
this country and in Europe, which ac
counts for its -not coming into general
use with the Inman lobster, so to speak.
A lobster never comes on shore unless
he is carried by farce. They are afflicted
with but one disease—boils. There is
more real excitement in harpooning a
whale or in leaving the measels, than in
catching lobsters. The fisherman pro
vides himself with it small ben coop,
places in it re)r d
ntieers, several dear' fish.
He then rows his beat to the lobster
ground. —which is water—and sinks his
coop to the bottom, mid anchors it to a
small buoy—one from six to eight years
old will do—and then goes back and
pulls his ponitty house, and if lee leas
good success lee will find the game inside
the coop.
As en article of fond the real goodness
of the lobster is in the pith. Very. few
persons relish the skin, and physician.
say it is hard to digest. We therefore
take the lobster and boil it tined it is rea
dy to eat. Nothing is better for colic
than boiled lobster. It trill bring on' a
case when cucumbers hare failed. For a
sudden case We advise them crumbled in
milk. E.,ten at the right (hue and in
proper quantities, lobster stands second

An Old Story Retold.
IF any one believes that all the stories
of the glorious old times of Jackson
and Clay campaigns have been used up,
he will find how ease it is to be mistaken.
\Fitness the - following which comes to ns
from old Kentucky, hy the way of Louis
iana. Our enterprising, fliend begins
"Yon must know"—bnt see did not
know—" that around and about the beau
tiful city of Lexington, in the state of
Kentucky, fora distance of twelve or fif
teen mike, there lives—or did live, twen
ty years ago—a great number of small
fitemers. who find in that city a ready
market for the surplus products of their
farms, and there they carry it to sell. and
buy finery and nick-Hacks for their fami
lies. One of these farmers. a poor hut
indn-trions man. had. a porker, a few
hnshels of meal, potatoes, beans. etc.,
which be wished to dispose of ; and bor
rowing n horse and wagon he packed up
his things, and, just at dusk, set oft for
town. Arrived at one or two olelnek iu
the morning. he entered the m id:et-house
and selecting a stall, he split the dressed
pig into halves, and burg them on the
stout hooks, and with n bag for a pillow,
lay down to steep until mornim!.. lie
slept soundly and late, and when. be
awoke the market people were crowding
in and lo! one-half of his pig had been
unhooked—and hooked, It was clean
gone. He made known his lice. and rav
ing and swearing, he drew the whole
crown about. bins. As he gran warm
with his wrath, he said,
I know the sort of man that stole
that pork—l do.
why not let it out, if you know,
and we will bell) find him for you,' they
' Yes, I know . what sort of a man he
was—he Was a Clay man.'
As old Henry Clay lived within a mile
of the market, and4;very man here was
ready to go to the (Leath for him, this was
a bold speech to make, to accuse a Clay
man of stealing half a pig in Lexington,
and they closed on him to give him a
sontul ihrashing • when one demanded
what made claim think so.
' Why, nobody but a Clay man would
hey done it; of he had heen a Jackson
man he' would hey gone the hull hog.'
This turned the tables. The humor of
the robbed farmer - was 'irresistible. The
lksingtonians carried him off to a eel
fee-house to a hot breakfast and. a morn,
ii *
spree, and after drinking, to - the health
of Henry C'ay, they made up his loss,
and tent him home toj*ing:

How He Proposed,
A story is told of a preacher who lived
about forty vt ars. n 0.. Ire was a bachelor,
and we could write his real name but li
reer to call him Smith. He resisted
many persuasions to marry, which his
friends were constantly making, until be
had reached a tolerably advanced age, and
he hituselt began to feel the peed of or, at
least, to have new ideas of We comfort of
being nursed with woman's gentle care.
Shortly after entering one of hiscirenits,a
maiden lady, also of ripe years, was

A Lizt:o Glrri Answer
THE King of Prussia, while visiting a
village in Mg country, was. welcomed be
the school children of the p'are.
After their speaker had made' a speech
for them, he thanked them. Then take-
Mg an oranD- from a phoe. he asked:
'1"0 what kingihnn does this belong?"
"The vegetable -kingdom, sire," replied
a girl
The Mug took a gold coin from his
pocket, and holding it up, asked : "And
to what kingdom does this belting I'
"To the mineral kingdom," said a lit
tle girl.
'And to what kingdom do L belong,
then ?' asked the King.
The liale girl colored deeply, for she
did not like to say -the animal kingdom,"
as he thought she would;le.t. his majesty
shonld be offended. Just then it fla4hed
into her mind that "God made man in
his own image." and looking np with a
brightening eve she said: "To God's
kingdom. slit'''
The King teas deeply moved. A tear
stoou in his eye. He placed his hand ofi
the child's head, and said, most devoutly:
"God grant that I may e be accounted wor
thy of that kingdom."
Thus did the words of a child move
the heart of a Bing.. Little children,
learn from this that even your words may
do both good and harm. A pert word
from a child may wound the :heart of a
mother; a loving one may make it glad.
My little children let your words be kind,
true and right.
