Well hath the poet said that Death,
With ghastly mien and his chilling breath,
With his icy hand and his heart uf stone,
Hath every season for his own.
There's no escape from his poisoned dart
'Twill pierce in its flight each, throbbing
heart ;
E'en now the bow and the string are set,
And the shaft is aimed at the Houtchold
She struggles now with the monster grim;
Her ohecks grow pale and her eyes grow;
dim ;
Her attenuate form is racked with pain,
And efforts to save seem all in vain ;
They are in vain she is going fast ;
Her form is chill she has breathed her last,
'lis a solemn fate, but it must be met
E'en by the little Household Pet.
She is gone '. we never shall sec her more,
In her childish sports, as oft before ;
Ko more bhall look in her sparkling eye.
No more shall list to her avr?Tt bye-bye ;
The soul has gone to its rest afar,
Perchauce to dwell on some distant star;
Uf all she was, naught remaineth yet.
But the dust of the Household Pet.
She has gone from earth with its pain and
cure ;
Sbe's safe in a realm that is bright and
fair ;
And 'tis cheering to us who linger here
To know that her way to heaven was clear:
But yet it is hard to give her up,
And the band is slow to tnke the cup,
And hearts arc blccdiug, and eyes arc wet,
For the little, playful Household Pet.
Adieu ! sweet child '. it is thine to go
And ours to retnniu a while bcow;
Ours to lament that thou art dead,
And strew with flowers thy grassy bed;
But while we grieve, 'twill be sweet to know
That our heavenly Father ordered so;
And that, how'er deep may be our regret,
It is well witb the little Household Pet.
Well, this yer Smiley had rat-terrier?,
and chicken cocks, and tout cat, and all
them kind of things, till you hand't noth
ing for him to bet on but he'd match you.
He keiched a frog one d:iy and took him
home, and said he calculated to educate
him : ard so hs never done nothing for
three months but set in his back vnrJ
and learn that frog to jump. Anl you
cau bet he did learn hitu too. He'd give
him a little punch behind, and the next
minute you'd see that liog whirling in the
air like a doughnut see him turn one
summerset, or maybe a couple if he got
a good start, and come down flat footed
and ail right like a cat. He got him up
so in the matter of ketching flics, and
kept him in practice so constant, thttt
he'd bail a fly every time as far as he
could ace him. Smiley said all a frog
wanted was education, and he could do
most anything and I believe him.
Why, I've seen him set Dau'l Webster
down here on this floor Dan '1 Webster
was the came of the fro" and siug out :
Flies, Dan'l, flies," and quicker'n you
could wiuk, he'd spriug straight up make
a fly off the counter there, and flop down
on the floor again as solid as a gob of
mud, and fall to scratching the 6ide of
his head with his foot as indifferent as if
he hadn't no idea he'd done more than a
frog might do. You never see a frog so
modest end straight forward as he was.
And when it come to a fair and rquarc
jumping on a dead level he could get
over more ground than any of his breed
you ever see. Jumping on a dead level
was his stronghold, you understand, aud
when it come to thai, Smiley would ante
up money on him as long as he hud a red.
Smiley was monctrous proud of bia frog,
and well he might be, for fellers that had
traveled aod been everywhere said he laid
"over any frog that ever they see.
Well, Smiley kept the beast in a little
lattice box, and he used to fetch him down
town sometimes and lay for a bet. One
day a feller a stranger in the camp, he
was come across him with his box, and
says :
"What might it be that you've got in
th box ?"
And Smiley says, sorter indifferent like,
"It nrght be a parrot, or it might be a
canary, maybe, but it ain't it's only just
And the feller took it, and looked at it
carefully, turned it round this way and
that, and says, "Ilini so 'tis. Well,
what's ho good for ?"
"Well," Sally ca3, esry and oarelve,
piHTI FEBRUARY 21, isce.

t.-Ypo ongh tot one thing, 1 should
judge he can oat jtinrp anj frog in Ca
laveras county."
Tha feMer tool the box again and took
another loDg. particular look, and gate tlhem were several y0UI1g ladies of the
back to Smiley, aid aays, rery deliber- npper.tendom 0f those days sensible
a:cly, "Well I don't see no points about jlooking creatures, happy as larks, and al
that frog that's y better than any other , s ulI of fua at)(i mischief. It hap
"Maybe you rbn't" Stuilty says. Jlay
be you understaid frogs, and maybe you
don't andcntul'em; maybe you've had
. .. ,
experience; ari maybe you ain't only a
amature, as it were. Any ways, I've
got my opinio), and I'll risk forty dollars
that he can ott-jump any frog in Calave
ras county.
And the ffllcr studied a minute, and
then yvkirder "'1 'ike, "Well I'm
only a stranger here, lnd I ain't Kct no
frog but if I had a frog I'd bet you.
And thea Smiley say- "That's all
right that's all right if you'll hold my
box a minute. I'll go and get you a
fios nd the feller took the box and
put his forty dollars along with Smiley 's
and setduwn to wait.
So le eet there a good rhile thiDkins
and tluuking to hiuieeif, and then lie
ot the frog out and pried his mouth
open and tooK a teaspoon aua niiea mm
full of quail shot filled him pretty near and Betty's father having a fine supply,

"Now, you're ready, set him along side
of Dan'l, with his iorepaws just even
with IWIs, and I'll five the word."
Then he says, "One two threejump:"
and him and the feller touched up th e
frogs from behind, and the new frog hopp.
ed off lively, but Dan'l gave a heave,
and hysted up his shoulders so like a
frenchman, but was'nt no use he
couldn't badge ; he was planted as solid
as an anvil, and he couldu't no more stir
than if he was anchored out, uiiley
was a good deal surprised, and he was
disgusted too, but he didn't have no idea
what the matter wai of course
The feller took the money, and started
J- auJ when Le W3S S'AaS out of tbe
door, he Eorte jerked his thumb over
his thoulJer this way at Dau'l and
says again, very deliberate, "Well I
don't sec no points about that irog that's
any better than any other frog."
Suiiley, he stood scratching his head
aod lopkiug down on Dan'l a long tiuie
at last he says, "I do wonder what in
the nation that frog tLrowed off for I
if ondor if there ain't something the mat
ter with him he 'pears to look mighty

by the nap of the neck and Ifited him up,

Never Kxock Under. No, never.
Always rally your forces for another and
more desperate assault upon adversity.
If calumny assails you, and the world
as it is apt to do in such cases, takes part
with your traducerg, don't turn moody
and misanthropic, or worse still, seek to
drown your uuhappincss in dissipation.-
Bide your time. Discover the slander if
yuu can j if not, liva it down. If pov
erty comes upon you like a thief ia the
night what then ? Let it rouse you, as
the presence of a real thief would do to
encrgUio action. No matter how deeply
you mtiy have got into hot water always
provide that you did not help the Father
of Lies to hate your case-, if you are made
of the right kind of stuff, it is not des
perate, for it is in accord with the divine
order and sweep of things that life should
have no difficulties whkh an honest, de
termined man, with Heaven's help, cannot
jfcThjre ia a boy down East who is
accustomed to go out on a railroad track
and imitate the steam whistle so perfectly
as to deceive the officer at the station.
His last attempt provea eminently suc
cessful ; the depot master came out and
"switched him off."

About the jear 1832 and '33 there
lived a family of some note on the Gau-
nalniinn rivpr in Wratarn Texas. Anions

men residing in that section there was

An opportunity offered on the followin
, ubbath. it being watermelon season
that 31- should be decoyed from tha house
and frightened by the cry of "Indians,"
from some of his comrades, which would
wound his pride and drive him away. A
swim iu the fiver, some three hundred
yards distant, was proposed by one and
seconded by several. Of course poor 31.
was in.
They west to the ford near the melon
! patch, and began undressing. In the
meantime eitzbt or ten others, with guns, :
Lad gone down under cover of the bank,
and secreted themselves along the path
from the bathing place to the house. The
company with Miller were in fiue glee,
aud in going down spoke of the recent
outrages of the Inuians, their increased
boldness, &c., thus exciting the anti-combative
buuips of 31iller to the highest
"Notr, boys," tsid one, "who'll jump
into the river first ?"
"I'll bet I'm first in," said .Miller, "by
Josh I'm first with the gals in course
I'm first here,"
Off went coats, pants, shoes, socks, Ac
Just as 31iller had doffed everything but
his short red flannel shirt bang ' bang !
tang ! why-o-wo-ya ! bang ! went two,
throe and four more guns loud aud more
shrill rose the teirib'e warhoop in the
dmse brush under the bank.
"Good gracious ! I'm a dead man,"
groaned James Simpson.

corner of the thicket bang ! bang I went
half a dozen pieces, and louder than ever
rose the hidootts war cry.
"Oh, my '." gruuted 3Iiller, redoubling
his speed, the red blaze getting larger,
and buoches of his bushy hair dropping
out as he spread himself see hita leap
the yard fence, high in air, red thirt and
all. '
The porch was full of ladies ofl went
two or three more guns 31. glanced at
the ladies and then at his short flannel ;
"Kun for your life, 31'." screamed
Betty, "the house is full of Indians 1
father is dead and brother Sam is wounded.
Kun ! speed !"
In the twinkling of an eye 31. was put
of te yard, and supposing the premise
surrounded, off he shot the red blaze
more brilliant than ever and stiikin
directly for the thick, thorny bottom, he
reached and swam the river, and although
t was nearly sunset, 31. got into a settle
ment fifty miles distant to breakfast next
morning, still retaining the sleeves and
collar of kid red shirt, and reported alljwefo. It says : "Bit-you-mcn."

As for himself, he said he had fought as
