His name, we're told. was Joshua 17fhll e .
And her's was Patience Warner.
Not much the pretty maiden mild,
Beside the young msn sitting ;
tier cheeks were flashed a rosy red,
tier eyes bent on hoe knitting.
Nor could he guess what thought of him
Were to her bosom flocking,
Al her fair fingers, swift and - slim.
Flew round and round the stocking.
While, as for Joshua, bashful youth,

-Though all the time, to tell-the truth, --
His obair edged nearer to her. •
Meantime her ball of yarn gate nut,
She knit so fast and steady ;
Arid he must give his aid, no doubt,
To get another ready.
He held the skein; of come the thread
Got tangled, snarled and twisted;
"Have patience I" cried the &Meek - maid.
To him who her assisted.-
Good chance •ee this for tongoe-tied churl
To eborten all palaver;

And may I really have her."

A Thrilling Adventure.
We question whether, in the history of
.hair-breadth escapes. a parallel to the fol
lowine. can family be found. The story was
told to us by an old and valued friend,
now residing in the - country near the city,
but whose early days were spent near the
scene of the tragic, adventure. recorded
W e give the 'story as it was related to ui
in the words of the hero :
It was about the year 1805. that I Settled
in Virginia, near,he failsof the Kanawha.
The country, at hat time, was an unbro
ken wilderness. But few settlements had
been made by the whites, and they were
so far apart an to render vain all hopes of
assistance in case of an attack from hostile
Indians, numbers of whom infested- the

eral months unmolested, and by dint
of rer , everance, then young and hardy.
succeeded in making quite a clearing in
the forest. which I planted in corii- % and
which promised_ an abundant yield.
one morning, after we 'had dispatched
our humble 'meal, and I bad just prepared
to venture forth upon my accustomed rou
tine of labor, my attention was arrested
by the tinkling of a caw bell in the, corn
"There." said my wife.."the cow is in the
- But the ear of the backwoodsman be
comes by education vet y acute, especially
so from the fact that his safety depends
upon the nice cultivation of that sense. I
was not 10 eaaily deceived. I listened. The
sound was repeated.
"That," said I, In reply to my wife's 're•
mark, "was not the tinkle of_ a bell upon
the neck of a now, but a decoy from some
Indian, who wishes to draw me into an
Believing this to be the case,l took down
my old musket, and seeing that it; was
properly.loaded, I stole cautiously aromid
the field towards'the spot from which the
sound seemed to proceed.
As I suspected, there, in' a clump of
bushes, crouched an Indian, waiting for
me to appear in answer.to his decoy bell,
that he might send the fatal bullet to my
heart. 1 approached without discovering
myself to him until within Shooting dis
tance,- then I raised my piece and fired.
The bullet sped true to its,mark, and the
Indian tell dead. - ,
Not knowing but that he might be ac
companied by others, I returned with all
speed to the cabin, and having firmly bar
ricaded the door, I watched all day from
the puri-hole, in anticipatiOn of an attack
froirf the companions of the Indian I bad
killed. To add to the danger end seeming
helplessness of my situation, I discovered
that I had but one charge of powder left.
I could make but one shot, then. If at
tacked by numbers I should be entirely in
their power. Determined to do the hest
with what I had, I poured out the last
charge of powder and put it into the mus
ket, and Men waited for the approach of
night,leeling sure of an attack.
Night came at last. A beautiful moon.
light it was too, and this favored me great
ly, as I would 'thereby be able to observe
the movements of the enemy as they ap
proached the cabin.
It was some • two - hours after nightfall,
and yet I 4 had neither heard nor seen a
sign of the Indians, when suddenly I was
startled by the baying 'nf my dog at the
'stable. I knew that the Indians were
coming. The stable stood a little to the
west ,of the cabin. and between the two
was kpatch of -clear ground upon which
thelicht of the clear moan fell unobstruct

In.lhe evening the medical 'students—
who are earnest enough to seek, by hard 1
work, to obtain a knowledge of their pro. I

which thereere several located in different
parts of the city. The largest and finest
of them is located in the upper.part of a
college building, where twenty-five or .

college faculty. "subjects"—i. e:.i dead I

gether upon this small "subject," which
they treated somewhat tenderly. With
open books before them, these young . men
deftly ply their sharp steel instruments,
the incised flesh being held open by small
hooks chained together in such a manner
as to enables the ooenstor to obtain an un
trammeled working space upon that part
of the body which he is investigating.
When these subjects are first brought to
the dissecting room, an attendant injects
into the veins a preparation of plaster,col

the blood passes, and materially aids the
student in tracing their direction and

the dissecting room, curdled the blood in
their veins. This familiarity • with the
dead, and the handling of different por

tractive work to some of the studenta,who

OS CATS --A famous place for cats in

Virginia: Some years ago a youngster of
that city.wishing to have some fun, went
through the market and privately engag
ed each market man fromddie country to
bring a cat next day, as he said be want
ed a good mouser. Every country house
bad a superfluity of cos, so the . next
morning each market cart carried a torn
cst in town. The joker did not make his
appearance, of course. and the market
men, after waiting for him until they were
ready to go home, indignantly turned all
the cats looee in the market hemp. Such
a caterwauling as was heard that night
was never heard before in the quiet Streets
of Alexandria. The cats lived on- the
offal of the market house, and great , and
multiplied until Alexandria became as fa
mein for csta - as Cincinnati is for hogs.

married men who are not averse to seeing
their wives kissed, but an exchange re
lates the particulars of a case in which n
newly-wedded Benedict felt himself in
sulted because his wife wasn't kissed.
The bridegroom in question was a stal
wart young rustic,. who was known as a
formidable operator in a "free fight." His
bride was a beautiful and blooming young
country girl, only sixteen years of age.
and the twain were at a party where a
number of young folks were enjoying
,the good old-fashioned
pawn-playing style. Every girl .in the
room was called out and kissed except-
B—, the beautiful young bride aforesaid,
although there was not a youngster
present who was not dying to taste her
lips, - but they were restrained by the pres
ence of her herculean husband, who stood
regarding the party with a sullen look of
dissatisfaction. They - mistook the cause,
however, for suddenly he expressed him
self. Itelling up his sleeves. he stepped
into the middle of the room, and in a-tone
of voice that secured marked attention,
said: "Gentlemen, I haire been, noticing
how things have been working here for
some time, and I ain't half satisfied.* I
don't want to raise's fuss, but—""What's
the matter. John I" inquired half a dozen
voices. "What do you mean? Have I
done anything to hurt your feelings ?"
"Yes, you have ; - all of you have hurt my
feelings, and I've just got this 'to. say
about it: Here's every girl in the room
has been kissed near a dozen times apiecs,
and there's my wife, who' I consider as
likely as any of them, has not had a sin
gle one to-night ; and I just tell you now:
if she don't get as many kisses the bal
ance of the evening as any gal in the room",
the man that slights her has got me to
.fight—that's all. Now go ahead with.
your plays !" If Mrs. B— was slighted
during the balance of the evening we did
not know it. As for ourself, we know
that - John had no fault to find with us in
