If you can not on the ocean
Sail among the swiftest fleet, -Booking
on the highest billows,
Laughing at the storms you meet,
You oan stand among the sailors,
Anchored yet within the bay,
You can lend a hand to help them
As they launch their boat away.
If you are too weak to journey
Up the mountain, steep and high,
You can stand within ihe valley
While the multitudes go by; 9
You can chant in happy measure,
As they slowly pass along.
Though they may forget the singer,
They will not forget the song.
If you have not gold and silver
Ever ready to command,
If you can not toward the needy
Beach an erer open hand,
You can visit the afflicted.
O'er the erring you can weep,
You can be a true disciple
Sitting at the Savior's feet.
If you can not in the harvest,
Garner up the riobest sheaves,
Many a grain, both ripe and golden,
Will the careless reapers leave;
Go and glean among the briers, '
Growing rank against the wall,
For it may be that their shadow
Hides the heaviest wheat of all.
If too can not in the conflict
Prove yourself a soldier true
If. where fire and moke are thickest
There's no work for you to do;
When (he battle field is silent,
You can go with careful tread,
Tou can bear away the wounded,
You can cover up the dead.
Do not. (hen. stand idly waiting
For some greater work to do ;
Fortune is a lazy Uoddess
She will never come to you.
Go and toil in any vineyard,
lo not fear to do or dare,
It you want a field of labor,
Tou can find it any where.
Pocket Money for Boys.
The Gennantown Ttleffraph says : "How
to raise pocket money is a hard question for
a great many farmer's sons to solve. True,
some may hare but little trouble to get it
providing their parents are wealthy ; but to
this class I shall not speak. To such boys
as like to earn what they spend, and have a
k-iie to become farmers, I will present a
plan by which these ends may be attained
to a greater or less degree.
"In the first place it will be necessary to
hare a small piece of ground, on the farm,
of course; to those who cannot get that, my
plan will not be feasible. After having got
your land, you are ready to commence oper
ations. All your spare moments may be
employed upoa it. I suppose most boys
know what to plant ; but still a few hints
from one who has tried it may not be out of
plate. If you are near a ready market, I
would suggest early vegetables, such as peas,
string beaus, beets, early potatoes, etc; and
to those that weieat a distance from any
s icli market, pop corn might be raised to
advantage, or white bush beans, im they al
ways command a good price if a good arti
cle; still a great deal would depend 6n the
nature of the land, and what was most in
demand in either case. After planting, do
iiot think that your work is done till har
n'sting; but keep your ground mellow ; hoe
vour crops as often as you can ; do net let a
weed be seen, for all that goes to the nour
ishment of the weed will be taken from
your pocket. It will take you but a few
fiiomc-nu a day to hoe it over, if you do not
Lave too much ground, which will be worse
than none, for you will find that a little
ground well tilled is a great deal better than
& good deal left to take care of itself or only
half taken care of.
"Another thing you will find to be of
great u.e to you as well as a pleasant pas
time, and that is to have a blank book, in a
part of which you should set down the time
-'f planting, the kind of manures used, and
which gave the best satisfaction ; how your
crops 9tood the drought or wet weather, as
the case might be, and in fact anything you
think it might benefit you to know in a suc
ceeding year. In another part of my book
I would keep an account with my land,
thargine it with the manure, seed and la
bor, and giving it credit for its produee.
! this way you can see at a glance what
wops pay best, and what manure will pro
duce the largest crops. In keeping your
hook for a few years you will derive much
pleasure in looking back at your first begin
ning to farm for yourself
"If for the first year or two your pocket
money does not equal your expectation you
must not be discouraged, but remember that
hat does not go into your pocket goes into
Jour head in the shape of experience, which
ill be of great use to you in future years,
-t those who can, try this ; it will cost
toem nothing if they are living on farms,
tor all the work may be done at noons, eve
ij'ngs, and in the morning. It will not only
te a sporce of pleasure to them, but also of

The Three Hunchbacks.
The following amusintr and seemingly in
credible narrative we extract from a late
French publication. It is neatly told, and
Will be read with interest:
Three brothers, all humpbacked, and all
accurately alike in appearance, lived at
Basancon. Une of them killed a man in a
chance medley, but not being taken on the
moment, the prosecutors could only swear
that one of the three brothers had done the
deed. Rather than put an innocent man to
death, the judge let the guilty one escape,
but to avoid iurther inconvenience of the
kind, he bauished all from the province.
One settled in Paris, became rich, and mar
ried ; the others; after nearly starving in
England, returned and paid a visit to their
fortunate brother.
The master of the house was abroad when
they knocked and the poor wife was troubled
more than a little by the visit. "My hus
band is very jealous," said she to them
while she was giving them something to eat.
"You must go to the farthest quarter of the
town, and never come here again ; but I'll
make your brother attend to your wants."
While she was speaking she heard her hus
band's knock, and cried out, "Follow me if
you value your lives."
She ordered the servant not to open the
door till she returned, and then conveyed
the brothers down the stairs and locked
them in the cellar. Her husband scolded
for being kept out so louz, but a good din
ner restored him to good humor, and at
night he went out to pay a visit. (.
The wife then went down to the cellar, and
there found the two poor brothers dead, one
lying here, the other there. What was to
be done? She sent for a strong Auvergant,
brought him down stairs, showed him one
corpse which she had previously taken out
of the callar, and promised a Louis d'or on
his return, alter having thrown it into the
Seini. He made no scruple about the mat
ter, but popped the body into the sack, took
it to the bridges and shook it into the river.
Returning for his reward, the wife disputed
his claim, as the body was still lying outaide
the cellar door. Here the stupefied man
saw what he firmly believed to be the corpse
he had thrown from the bridge, and resign
ing himself to destiny, be got it into his
sack and went through the ceremony the
second tiuie. Coming back, he was terrified
and enraged by finding the twice-drowned
corpse knocking at his own door. "Are
these your tricks, master?" said ho. "Ah,
Monsieur Ghost ! clever a3 you are, I'll set
tle you the third trial. "
"So saying, he forced the poor husbind
into the sack, carried him to the tame spot,
and ejected the third discharge. This time
he returned in triumph, for the wife, igno
rant of her hubaiid's fate, and having no
more corpses to remove, paid him twice
what she had covenanted, and gave Lim a
glass of wine into the bargain.
"Your good health, mndaine," said he,
"you are better than you promised, but I
earned it. I found the humpbacked rogue
or his ghost knocking at your door after I
had thrown him in the second time."
"Oil, wretch!" cried the poor woman,
"you have drowned my husband!"
While she was sort aming and he standingin
amazement, the gend.umes entered, secur
ed both. and sent them to prison. Next day
they wsre brought before the magistrate of
the -quarter and examined. The poor wife
concealed nothing; the Auvergant was not
called on. for an 'explanation; and while both
were awaiting sentence of drath the three
brothers, in full lile, but with pale faces,
were ushered into "the room. Some fisher
men stationed near the bridge had saved the
three. The unmarried meu had only beeu
dead drunk in the cellar, and the submer
sion, and the consequent pulling and haul
ing and ejectment of wine and water, had
recovered them from their drunken lethar
gy before the natural time. On their first
appearance before the magistrate they could
give no explanation of their visit to the
river, and the husband had no idea of the
cause of his being seized on, but his wife's
explanation made all clear.
The kin hearing of the strange adven
ture, settled a pension cn the unmarried
men, but they were not to dwell within fifty
miles of Paris, and the married man was
not jealous for a year and a day after his
siexure and escape from the river.
The Nctriment op Beer. People who
drink their ale and beer, are very fond of
telling how much nutriment they derive from
them. Because they are manufactured from
grain, many have the idea that the concen
trated virtue of the grain are in the drinks.
This is entire fallacy. Professor Liebig,
one of the most emineut chemists in the
world, assures us that fourteen hundred and
sixty quarts of best Bavaria beer contains
exactly the nourishment of a two-and-a-half-pound
loaf of bread. This beer is very
similar to the famous English Alsopp's, and
our more popular American beer. The
fact is, the nutritious portion of the grain
is rotted before beer can be made ; and if
the fermentation of the beer be complete,
Professor Lyou Playfair declares that no
nourishment whatever remains in the fer
mented liquor; and as the English Alli
ance Aetcs says, "No chemist now disputes
these assertions; for, except in flavor and
amount of alcohol, the chemical composi
tion of all kinds of beer is alike, and brew
ers must laugh to hear doctors advising
porter as more nourishing than beer, when
porter is nothing but beer colored by burnt
malt ; and often when beer goes wrong in
the making, and is unsaleable as beer, it is
converted into fine Porter, the mere color
ing covering many defects."
The following somewhat remarkable ad
vertisement appeared in the columns of a
recent number of a newspaper; "Lost, by
a poor lad tied up in brown paper, with a
flute in an overcoat, and several other arti
cles of wearing apparel."
Midnight Scene in Gen. Grant's Camp.
The battle of Arbela was eloquence of
uanng ou tne part or the young Macedoni
an King. That of Thermoepyla was the
eloquence of patriotism on the part of Le
onidas and his Helots. The battle of Au3
terlitz was the eloquence of bravery on the
part of the young Corsican. The scene of
Valley Forge was the eloquence of faith on
the part of Washington. The scene after
the battle of the Wilderness combined all
these elements, and added the eloquence of
silence. The well known result of that
fierce conflict was adverse to the army of the
United States. Gen Lee had flung one
wing of his army between our forces and
the base of their supplies, which would re
quire another battle to regain them. Each
division and corps commander knew this sad
condition of affairs. They were all sum
moned to a council of war, to be held at
headquarters at one o'clock at night They
were the saddest steps ever taken by that
band of devoted hearts. Fifteen thousand
brave soldiers, dead or dying, or wounded,
were lymg-on the field hard by.
One after another entered, and after mak
ing a noiseless salute, silently took their
seats. Generals Schofield, Meade, Burn
side, Sickles, Howard, and others, I believe
were there. Not a word was spoken. A
full half hour thus passed by. Their emo
tions were too deep for utterance. Hopes
hung on the decision of that council.
At length Gen. Grant asked each one in
succession if he had any advice to proffer.
Each one answered with a sad monosvllable,
The commander then wrote a few lines
and handed the slip to Gen. Meade, and he
retired, lhis was repeated until all were
gone, and the general was left alone. One
of the staff of a division commander, who
was sick, was the last to retire, and he is
authority for the above.
All were ignorant of eich other's order.
They felt assured I hat retreat had been di
rected. Any other alternative would have
been believed to be madness. Had they
known that the order had been given to ad
vance, instant and universal mutiny would
have been raised. That eloquent silence for
which he has ever been noted,wa.s the key
to his success there.
The next morning each corps moved, and
Gen. Lee, the instant he perceived it, ex
claimed with vehemence, "Our enemy has
K leader at last, and our cause ir lost !'" He
had bid his officers the night before to let
their soldiers sleep long. But now he saw
the army whom he thought utterly defeat
ed, moving around between hiiu and the
base of bis supplies. He hastened to begin
retracing his course, and confessed to an ar
tillery o.ficer of the confederate army that
the doom of their cause was sealed.
A Grateful Tiger. A caged tiger had
a live dog thrown to it one day for its din
ner. 2"iot being very hungry, the usually
tierce creature did not touch the trembling
little victim. This quietness gave the dog
courage, and he began -to lick the tiger's
eyes w.iich were sore. This act seemed
pleasant to the wild beast, and the dog con
tinued from tinicto time, till the eyes of
this savage animal get well. The tiger from
that time took his tiny four legged doctor
under his patronage, looked upon him kind
ly, and allowed him to eat what he chose of
the food thrown into his pen. Henceforth
they lived like bosom friends.
Thus, you see, even the fierce tiger can be
grateful for a little favor. How much more,
then, should children learn to be grateful to
their friend for the great favors they have
received. When I see boys and girls un
kind and insulting to their parents, who
would have done and suffered so much for
them, I tell them the story of the tiger and
the dog, and say, "Children, don't be less
grateful to your kind parents than the tiger
was to the little dog."
The custom of throwing a shoe, taken
from the left foot, after persons, for good
luck, has been practiced in Norfolk, Eng
land, from time immemorial not only at
weddings, but on all occasions where, good
luck is required. Some forty years ago a
cattle dealer desired his wife, to "trull her
left shoe after him" when he started for
Norwich to buy a lottery ticket. As he
drove off on his errand, he looked around
to see if she derformed the charm, and con
sequently he received the shoe in his face,
with such force as to black his eyes. He
went and bought his ticket which turned up
a prize of two hundred pounds ; and his
son has assured me that his father has al
ways attributed his good luck to the over
dose of shoe which he got.
Nicely Caught. A Western paper tells
a story of a distressed agriculturist thus :
A farmer diopped in here on Wednesday
last, to pay his rent, putting on a long face
to correspond with the times. On entering
the house, he told the landlord that times
being so bad he could not raise the money
at ali ; and, dashing a bundle of greenbacks
upon the table said : "There, that is all I
can pay." The money was taken up and
counted by Mr. , the landlord, who
said : "Why, this is twice as much as you
owe." "Hang'ee ! give it to me again,"
said the farmer, "I'm dashed if I hain't
took it out of the wrorg pocket !"
A man in Connecticut, whose wife died
the day before the; election, paired off with
a neighbor, and persuaded him to go to
Manchester for a coffin. When the kind
hearted undertaker returned, however, he
found that the election of Representative
had been carried against his party by a sin
gle vote, which had been cast in his absence
by the disconsolate widower.
In Lowell, the other night, two rival tra
