In venturing to publish a few specimens
of the literature of a remote race, who ha
lately attracted the attention =of the whole
civilized world. I deem itnecessary to offer a
word of explanation, lost the reader should
conclude that the eollciquialignis of Cabool are
too suspicionsly like the slang ota . our own
metropolis. Sir William Leslie,, in his ad
mirable work on the "Social Life and Manners
Of the Afghans,' lays:: 'Their poetry is rude
and simple. full 'of colloquial phrases, to'
celebrates - only the primitive passions and
most familiar surroundings of their daily life."
It will be obserVed that this remark Is emi
nently true, ,if . the following sonnets are
faithfully typical of Pushtzneh literature.. In
translating, I have been at some pains to
preserve a natural atmosphere-by substitut
ing for the idioms, of the Pusbtu language
such of our own Colloquialisms as most nearly
corresponiL-In no other way could .I preserve
the viva voce tone df the original!. •

went to see Darla to enlists a coupe.

'Well, Darley, I want a handsome

And so it - bapperied •that Monsieur de

T he gentlemen found this Fout very
soon. One daY he saw in one of the
coupe pockets note book, with gray
enameled cover and gold border, in
which were severalcards. On the back
of some of these s were metnoranda,
such as calls to be made, impressions,
reflections, etc) He examined a Card

Marisi now waited anxiously for
another find in the coupe. But, alas!
for a whole week neither note-book nor
anything else was forgotten But the
little 'saint.' who spent hei time l i eo
piously, occupied his rebid incessantly.
So he said one evening to the coluds-
'I have discovered that my coupe is
also used by a Madame de Belroy. Do
not deny it. I am sure. 'Now. lam

I might do so.' •

She was stilt, n mourning. She wore a

framed her 1(44 blonde hair; a long

Outwardly discomfited. but inwardly

The next morning he again followed

when she came out, that her toilet was
a little disarranged. Her hair was dis

rumpled. But after some moments of
jealous rage, the answer of Monsieur
de Villeparte came to his mind, and he
quickly repented of his distrust.

A shako! Not one of the friends of

ani_going to tell you, I had had more
correcting to do than usual, for some of
the scholars were stupid, and couldn't
do as I wished; and others were care
less, and didn't. try. What with the
looking, and stooping, and continual
showing, I-felt my patience giving way,
and when I saw that three of the largest
boys hid left the page upon which they
should have been practicing, and were
mak t ink 'unknown characters'' in differ
ent parts of their books, I lost it utter-'
ly. 'That I will not have,' said I sharp
ly,. 'I will punish any boy who makes
u mark. upon any butlthe lesson page. ,
They were very still for a while.
*othing was heard but the scratch,
scratching of the pens, and the sound
of my footsteps asl walked up and down
the aisles. Involuntarily, I found my
self studying the hands f before . me as if
they bad been faces. There was Harry
Sar.ford's, large and plump. but flabby
withal, and not over clean. . His 'n's'
stood weakly upon thoir loge, meamiase'
to. feet the need of other letters to prop
them - up.
Walter Lanes's, !red and chapped,-,
with short, stubbed 'fingers, nails bitten
off to the quick, , had yet a certain air
of sturdy dignity; and his 'n's,' if not
lumalsome, were certainly plain, and
looked asif they knew their place, and
meant to keep it.
Tommy Silver's, long and limp;
meared.with ink frem palm to nail,
vainly strove to keep time with a ton
gue which 'wagged, uncertainly, this
way and that, and which should have
been red, but was black, like the fingers.
His.'n's' had neither form no come

or even quite as well. , •
Then there was Hugh Bright's hand,
hard and rough with work, holding the
pen as if he never meant to let go; but his
'u's' were 'n's,' 4ind could - not be mis
taken for any else, .
At length- I came to Frank Dunbar's
desk—dear little . Frank, who had been
a real help and comfort to me since the
day' when hd bashfully knocked at my
door, with with books and slate in
hand. His hand was white and shape
ly; fingers spotless, nails immaculate,
and his •the—but what was it that sent
a cold chill over me as I look at (hem ?
Ah, nay dear, if I should live a. thous
and years, I could never tell you how I
felt when I found that Frank Dunbar
had written half a dozen letters u p on
opposite page of his copy -book .!
'Why, Frank,' said j, 'how did that
"Yon did it before I spoke?' said I,
clinging to a forlorn hope.
'No, 'm; I. did it afterward. I for
'Oh, Frank ! my good, good boy !
How Could you ? I shall have to pun
ish you.' '
'Yes, 'm,'—the brave blue eyes look
ing calmly up into my face.
'Very well; you may go to the desk.'
He went, and I :walked the aisles
again,—up and down, up and down,
giving a caution here or a word of ad
vice there, but not knowing, in the
least, what I was about. My ,thoughts
were all with the 'flaxen-haired culprit,
who stood bravely awaiting his penalty.
Vainly I strove to listen to my inward
monitor.. It seemed suddenly to have
become two-voiced,--the one tantidix-
Mg, the other soothing, —and, of course,
the tones were confhoting.
'Yon must punish him,' said one.
'You mustn't' said the other.
'He deserves it.'
'He disobeyed you flatly.' •
• 'But he forgot—and he has always
been so good.'
'But you promised. You have given
your word. Here are thirty boys to
whom you should , be an example. - Do
you think they are not watching you?
Look at them
I did look at them. Walter Lane's
sharp black eyes and 'Harry Sanford's
sleepy orbs were fixed curiously upon
me. Nor were these all. Gray: eyes,
blue eyes,. hazel' and brown eyes,—all
were regardinirine intently; I almost
fancied that they looked at me pitying.
I could not bear it, ,
'Attend to Your writing, boys.' Then
I walked slowly up to the desk.

some voice , : ----tYnn will certainly have

But , I had thought of a possible plan
of escape. 'Frank,' said 1,. 'you have
been disobedient, and---you ,know whit
I said, but—yozn are such a good boy
that I can not bear to punish you—not
in that way, I mean. You may pa, to
the foot of your chute, instead.'
'l'd rather take the whipping.' The
honest, upturned face was very sober,
but betrayed not the least sign of fear,
nor was there the slightest suspicion of
a tremble in the clear, childish voice.
'Blesa your brave little' heart,'
thought I. 'Of course you would 1 I
might have known it,' and again I walk
ed the aisles, up and down, thinking,

"'You will have to do it,' repeated the
voice.. "There is no other way.'

'The good of the school requires it.
Yon must 'apace your own feeling

JIM WEATEER Hmrs.—The Anteri
rican Agriculturist gives the following
sensible hot weather hints to farmers
"Avoid drinking large quantities of
cold water ; it is better if possible, to
take small draughts at frequent inter-,j ;
vats. If some cold waterlis poured up- •
on the wrists, or held upon the temples
or both, the temperature of the body
will be rapidly reduced, and with better
effect udon the system than if taken in- :
ternally. A light, white hat is far more
comfortable than a black one, and if it
has a wet cloth, or even a fresh cabbage '
leaf, placed in the crown, it will' be
the more cool and comfortable. A
ight ;handkerchief tied loosely about
he neck will protect it from th 3 burn
ng sun. A bath at .night is vet re
reshing, but should not be prolonged.'

so successfully that all t he men
who examined his case were, deceived
by him. No noise, however sudden or
unexpected, had any power to disturb
his equanimity; and he had acquired
such a perfect control over his nerves
that a pistol fired over his head When
he was asleep did not apparently awake
him. Grave Suspicions as to the venni

withstanding. Like most-malingerers,
he was a little too clever and complete.
Still, it seemed impcssible to catch him
tripping. A final - exaanination. - was
made; the doctors expressed themselves
satisfied, and the soldier was presented
with his certificate of diaaharge: Out-,
