she. And on being told that such a

We went.
One path lay up the side of the
mnuntati over an old, and almost dis

so, Euphemia found it a hard path.
She would not let toe carry her rifle

that she knew it was the proper thing
for hunters to bear their own weapons,
and, in course of time, she found it
very heavy. From one shoulder to

"Well, it makes no difference. Those
old fashioned things are all absurd. I
wish I could see a herd of deer on top
of those ruck," said she, pointing her
rifle at a little eminence, as if she was
practicing taking sight. (I knew very
well that she only did it to relieve her
shoulders.) "I think I could hit a few
of them."
"A few!" I exclaimed. "I don't
believe von could hit one at least,
not the first time you tried."
"That would not discourage me,"
she cried, with the spirit of a true
hunter suarking in her eyes. "Jf I

it was about half an hour after this
conversation, aud Eunhemia was car
rying her rifle under her mm in u way
that made me tremblo for my life.
When we came to a spot where the mail
branched. As I did not know which
was the main track, I told Euphemia
to wait a few minutes while I went for
ward to investigate.
When I returned I could not see
Euphe nia, but directly 1 descried her
on the top of a low bank, a short dis
tance up the other road. As I walk
ed towards her I saw that she was lev
eling her gun at something, 'vhich was
over the bauk and invisible to me.
Accordingly I approached her with
noiseless steps. Wheu I reached the
bank she was still taking aim, and I
whispered to her:
"Euphy, what is itT A deer?"
She turned to me, and in a low, hol
low voice said :
"No. It is a bear!"
I put my hands on the bauk to
scramble up, but she waved me back.
"Not one inch forward," she said,
"or your rashness will destroy us both.
Keep your charge in reserve, lie
ready with your rifle if I miss him. It
you come up here 1 shall scream, and
we are losL '
"Hear me, Euphy," I whispered,
trembling with excitement, "Come
down and let me up there. Mine is
the pobt of danger."
"No, it isu't," said she, in that
solemn undertone. "It u.-ed to be, hut

Bang! and Euphemia sat clown with
great suddenness.
I sprang upon the bank, and. Peeing
she was safe, rushed into the bushes.

Coming up in the cars quite an

to pay extra and have a seat iu the

the spot where weary gentlemen would
be glad to repose. The lady left her
seat fir a moment and went to the rear.
A gentleman at once went for it piled

said, "Sir, you have my scut.'' "1

seat." "1 have hud the seat all the

I have stood all the way from Albany,

A Story of General Thomas.
Among the stories told of the late
General Thomas, is one of an incident
which occurred when he and his chief
of staff", General OarfieM, were inspect
ing the fortifications of Chattanooga
in 1804. Ther heard a shout, "Hello,
Mister 1 I want to speak to you ;" and
General Thomas found that he was the
person addressed, by an uncouth, back
woods. East Ten ne.-seean. He stopped,
and the dialogue which ensued was as
follows :
"Mister, I want to get a furlough."
"Ou what grounds do you want a
furlough, my man?"
"I want to go home and see my
wife." . 7

The Boston Journal ays : The of
ficers of one of ur south end stations

shall do with a young girl id' about

a local reputation even before she
reaches her teens. She is almost daily

only to be found on her travels the
next day. A few days ago the "little

secured her a seat at the table, and af

Do Not Give Up.
A gentleman traveling in the north
ern part of Ireland heard the voices
of children, and paused lo listen. Find
ing the sounds proceeding from a
mull building used as a si:hool-hoU9C,
he drew near ; and, as the door was
open, he entered, and listened to the
words the boys were spelling. One
little fellow stood apart end aud dis
pirited. "Why does that boy stand there?"
asked the gentleman.
"Oh, he's good for nothing," replied
the teacher. "There's nothing iu him.
I can make nothing of him. - He is the
most stupid boy in the school.''
The gentleman was surprised nt
this answer. He saw thut the teacher
was so stem and rough that the young
er and more timid boys were nearly
crushed. He said a tew kind words to
lit in, and then plnciug his hand on the
nobL hr. w of the little fellow who
stood apart, he said: "One of these
days you nitty be a fine scholar. Do
uot give up; but try, my buy, try!"
The soul of the boy roused. II is
dormant intellect awoke.4 A new
purpose was formed. From that mo
ment he been tncstudiniis ami ambitious
to excel. Aud he did become a fine
scholar and the author of a well known
commentary on the bible a great
and g'od man, beloved and honored.
It was Dr. A. lam Clark.
The secret of his success is worth
knowing: "'t give up ; but try, my
boy, try !"
The Philosopher's Stone.
The recent riu but brilliant John
Randolph once rose suddenly up in his
se;i'. in the tlouso ot U"presentatives.
and screamed out, at the top of his
shrill voice: "Mr. Speaker! Mr.
Speaker! I have discovered the philos
opher's stone. It is Pay as you go I"
John Randolph dropped many rich
gems from his mouth, but never a rich
er one than that. "Tav as you go,"
and you need not dodge s'leriH and
constables. "Pay as ynu go," uud you
can walk the streets with tin erect buck
and manly front, and have no fear of
those you meet. You won't have to
cross the street to avoid a dun, or look
intently in a shop window, in order
uot to see a creditor. "Pay as you go,"
and vou run snap your fingers nt the
world, and when you laugh, it will be
a hearty, honest one, and not like the
laugh ot the poor iicbtir, Mho looks
around as though he was in doubt
wh ther the laugh was not the property
of his creditors, und not included in
articles "exempted from attach incut."
"Puv un vou go," and vou will meet
smiling faces at home -happy, cherry
cheeked, smiling children a content

Randolph was right. It is the philoso

A Good Woman.
A good woman never grows old.
Years may go over her bead, but if
benevolence und virtue dwell in her
heart, she is as cheerful us when the
spring of li'e first . peued to her view
w hen we look upon a good woman,
we never tlii ik of her age she looks
ss charming as when the rose of youth
first bloomed upon her cheek. That
rose has not faded yet ; it will never
fade. In her neighborhood she is the
friend and benefactor iu the church,
the devout worshipper and exemplary
Christian. Who does not love and re
spect the woman who has fased her
days in actsof kiuduoas nd mercy," ho
has been the friend of man and God
whose whole 1 i to bus been a scene of
kindness aud love, a devotion of love
aud religion? We repeat, such a wo
mnn can not grow old. She will al
ways he fresh and buoyant iu spirits,
and active in humble deeds of mercy
aud benevolence. If the youiif lady
desires to retain the bloom and beauty
of youth, let her not yield to the swn
of fushion and folly ; let her love tru'li
aud virtue; and to the close of life
she will retain those feelings which
now uiuke life appear a gardeu uf
sweets, ever fresh and new.

of Duluth "intend to waive that city

This is. I We rigkt kiud of talk,, and we

The city doubtless possesses many ad
