TllE DISAPPOINTED ANGLE113.
an Indian Tale.
In a winding of tho river Armidnr, just
before it falls into tho Caspian Sea, lies an
island unfrequented by the inhabitants of
the Continent. In this seclusion, blessed
with all that wild uncultivated naturo could
bestow, lived a princes and hor two daugh
ters. She had been wrecked unon the coast
while her children as yet wero infants, who
consequently, though grown up', were en
tirely unacquainted with man. Yet, inex
perienced as the young ladies were in 'the
opposite sex,' botii early discovered symp
toms, the one of prudery, the other of be
ing a coquette. The elder was ever lear
ning maxims of wisdom and discretion from
her mother, whilo the younger employed
all her hours in gazing at her own face in
a neighbouring fountain. Their usual a-
muscmcnt in this solitude was fishing, their
mother had taught them all the secrets of
the art; she shewed them which was tho
most likely place to throw out the line, what
baits where most proper for tlio various
seasons, and the best manner to draw up the
finney pry , when they had hooked it. In
this manncrtliey spent their time, easy and
innocent; till one day the Princes being in
disposed, desired them to go and catch her
a sturgeon or a porpoise for supper, which
she fancied might sit easy on her stomach.
The daughters obeyed; and clapping on a
gold fish, the usual bait on those occasions,
went and sat upon ono of tho rocks, letting
the gilded hooK glide down the 3tream
On the opposite shore, father down, at the
mouth of the river, lived a diver for pearls
a youth who, by long habit in his trade
was almost amphibious; so that he could
remain long at tho bottom of the water with
out over fetching breath. He happened to
be at tho very instant diving when the ladies
where fishing with the silded hook. See
ing, therefore, the bait, which to him had
the appearance of ieal gold, he was resolved
to sei'e the prize; but both his hands being
already filled with oysters, he found himself
obliged to snap at it with his month. The
conscqence is easily imagined; the hook be;
ing unperccived was instantly fastened in
his jaw, nor could he, with all his efforts at
floundering, get free.
'Sister,' cries the youngest princes 'I
have certainly caught a monstrous iish; I
never perceived anything struggle so at the
other end of my line before; come and help
me draw it in.' They both now, therefore
assisted in pulling up the diver on shore,
but nothing could equal their surprise upon
'Bless my eyes!' cried the prude 'what
have we got here? This is a Very odd fish
to be sure! I never saw anything in my life
look so queer. What eyes; what terrible
claws; what a monstrous snout; it certainly
must be a Fanlano, that eats women; let
us throw it back again into tho sea, where
we found it.'
The diver in tho mean time stood upon
the bank, at tho end of tho line, with the
hook in his mouth, using every art that ho
thought could excite pity, and particularly
lookingtender, usual in such circumstances.
Tho coquette, therefore, in some measure
influenced by tho innocence of his looks,
ventured to contradict her companion. 'Up
on my word, sifter, says she, 'I see
nothing in the animal so very terrible as you
aro pleased to apprehend ; I think it may
serve very well for a change. Always por
poises and sturgeons, and lobsters, and
crawfish, mako me quito sick. I fancy a
slice of this nicely grilled, and dressed up
with shrib sauce, would be very pretty ea
ting. I fancy mamma would liko a hit with
pickle abovo all things in tlio world; and if
it should not sit easy on her stomach, it will
bo timo enough to discontinue it when found
disagreeable, you know.'
Horrid, cries the prude, 'would tho girl
bo poisoned! I tell you it is a Faklano, I
havo read of it in tvcc'.y places, it is every
where describe as the mostporn'KMous ani
mal that ever infested tho sea. I am cer
tain that it is tho most insidious, ravenous
crelures in the world, and is sure distor
tion if taken internally.' Tho youngest
sister was now therefore obliged to submit:
boti assisted in drawing the hook with some
violence from tho diver's jaw; and he fin
ding himself at liberty, bent his hrcst against
the broad wave and disappeared in an in
Just at this juncture the mother came
down to tbo beach, to know the cause of
her daughters' delay. They told her eve
ry circumstance describing the monster they
had caught. Tho old lady was one of the
most discreed women in the world. She
was called tho Ulackcycd Princess, from
two black eyes she received in her youth;
being a little addicted to boxing in her li
quor. 'Alas, my children, ' cried she, what
have you done? The fish caught was a
man fish one the most tame, domestic an
imals in the world. We could have let
him run and play about the garden, and he
would have been twenty limes more inter
esting than our squirrel or monkey.' 'If
that is all,' said the young coquetto, 'we
will fish for him again. If that Le all, I'll
hold three tooth picks to one pound of snuff
I 'catch him whenever I please.' Accor
dingly they threw in their lino once more;
but with all their gilding, paddling and assi
duity, they could never catch tho diver.
In this state of solicitude and 'disappoint
ment they continued for some years, still
fishing, hut without success, till at last, the
genious of the place, in pity to their dis
tress, changed the prude into a shrimp, and
the coqutte into an oyster,
At this season of the year, when caughs
and colds ar the ortlerof the day, and scarce
a family is to be found, some of whose
members are not afflicted with them, the
following remedy communicated by a Rus
sian, as the usual mode, of getting rid of
these complaints Jn that partof Russia from
whence ho came is simple. It is no other
than a strong tea of elder flowers, sweetened
with honey, eithci fresh or dried. A basin
of this tea is to be drank as hot as possible
after the person is warm in bed; it produ
ces a strong perspiration, and a slight cold
or caugh yields to it immediately; but the
most subborn will require two or three rep
etitions. An Ohio paper thinks that the editor of
tho Lancaster Eagle, a fellow weighing three
hundred avoirde pois, ought to be "tried by
a court of justice."
He had better bo "tried" by a tallow
Vollairo, speaking of the impossibility of
fixing any standard of beauty, or defining it,
says, if you ask a tode what is beautiful, he
will tell you it is his wife, with a speckled
back and yellow throat.
Tho world is so ful of foola that he who
would avoid seeing any, must shut himself
up, and break his looking glass;
