no woman in our pet tliero whom I would
be willing to mako a wife, Tho city girls
arc so frivolouu, so fond of partios, so oa-

I do not wish to bo a heruiit,n fow friends

She is well informed, agreeable, simplo in

The uest morning Lovell'a companion
came down stair.i aitircd fur a journey.

So tho two patted, for Lovell remained

not move, anil obliged to remain a wit

and frightful spectacles ever offered to
the public. Tho snako .oharmor was
seated on tho ground, after tho fashion of
his country, with his snakoa all around
1 ; two or threo ol them wcro of tho
most enormous size ; almost as largo as
as a full grown bna. He would take them
up iu his hands, let them wind around his
legs, arm", body, neck and head ; stick
out their forked tongues and kiss him on
the hands, the lips, the eye lidn, and pro
sent their heads or tails to him, us ho com
While the spectacle - was proceeding in
the most successful way, one of the largest
snakes slipped oft unnoticed by the Arab,
or apparently so, and dragging itself along,
got out of tho crowd, everybody, you may
ho sti ro, giving him a clear spaeo Just
outstdo of tho circle two dogs wore play

It appears to me tint throe simple rules

tempers much more mutable than we gen

First, nevca givo anythiug improper lo

Second, always to gratify every reason
able dcaire when a child is pleasant in its
request, that your chilitrcu may seo that

Third, never become impatient and
fretful yourself, but proportion your dis
pleasure to exactly their oliense.
If parcuts become angry aud dpoak
loudly aud harshly upon every light fail
ure of duty they may bid adieu to domes
tic subordination, unless the grace of God
interposed to snatch tho little victims of
severity from distinction. I feel confi

A Tale of Terror.
At tho "Ctow Inn," at Antwerp, eonto
yoars ago, a whito spectre was seen bear
ing a lamp in ono hand and n bunch of
keys in tho other this unpleasant visitor
was seen by a variety of travelors passing
along the corridor.
Nothing would satisfy tho neighbors
that an unlortunato traveler had not bcon

fatal room hy 0110 of tbe provious landlords
of tho bouse ; tho hotel gradually abtainod
tho namo of tho "Haunted Inn," and
ccacd to ho frequented hy its old patrons.
Tha landlord finding himself on the
brink. of ruin, determined to sleep in the
haunted room, with a view of proving tho
grouudlessncss of tho story. To mako tho
matter more suro as ho said, he caused tho
hostlor to boar him company on preteneo
of requiring a witness to the absurd ity of
tho report j hut in reality, from cowardice.
At dead of night, however, just as the two
men wcro composing themselves to sleep
in ono bed leaving another which was in
the room untenanted the door flew open
and in glided the whito spectre.
Without pausing to ascertain what it
might attempt ou approaching .the bod,
towards whioh it directed its course, the
woman ru-hed naked out of the room 5

At length an officer of tho ganiso'n,who
had formerly frequented the house, moved
to oomp.ission in favor of tho poor host,

somo ouvious neighbor, do-irous of dctor
