The route between Boston and New

stopped at the latter city. Mr.

that he thought it would be prudent to

higly entered a liar -roan', near the sta

a shelf behind him and2placed it near
some glasses on the counter. . Just as
Webster was help himself, the
bar-tender, happening to look up,
started, as if he had seen' a spirit, and
cried 'Stop with great vehemence.
He then took the decanker from Web
ater's hands, replaced- it: on the shelf
fro:n whence it came, and disappeared
beneath the counter. Rising from.
these depths, he bore to the surface an
old-fashioned black bottle, which he
substituted from the decanter. Web
ster poured a small qaantity into . a
glass, drank it off •with great relish, and
threw down half a dollar in payment.
The barkeeper began to fumble _in a
drawer of- silver, as if Selecting some

Webster waved his hand with dignity,
and' with rich and - authoritative tone
pronounced these words: 'My good
friend, let me offer' you_a piece of ad

brandy from under the eonnter, never

we turned to go out the dealer placed

Anecdotes. ;
The Way of Jt
A farmer was once told the t his tur
nip field had been robbed, and that the
robbery had been committed by a poor,
inoffensive man, of the Mune of Palmer,
who, Many people' of the/village said,
had taken away a wagon*ad of turnips.
Farmer Brown, much exasperated _at
the loss of his turnips, determined to
prosecute poor Palmer z with all the se
verity of the law. With' 'this intention
he went to Molly Sanders, the washer.
woman, who bad been busy in spread
ing the report, to know the whole truth;
but Molly denied ever haying said any
thing about a wagon icunl of turnips: It
was but a cart.load that had been taken
and Dame Hodson; the huckster, bad
told her so, ever and over again. The
farmer hearing this, went to Dame
Hodson, who Said that Molly Saunders
was always. making things worse than
they really were ;. that Palmer had ta
ken only a wheelbarrow full of turnips,
and that she had her account from Jen
kins, the tailor. Away went the farmer
to Jenkins, the tailor. who stoutly de
nied the account - altogether. He had
only told Dame Hodson that Palmer had
pulled up several turnips, but how
.manyhe could not tell, for that he did
not see himself, but, was
_told by Toil
Slack.. the plowman. Farmer Brown
next questioned Tom Slack, who in his
turn declared he had never said a word
about seeing

turnips; .he only said ballad heard say
that Barnes, the bather. was the person
who bad told him about it. The farmer
