Citizen - 4 of Tioga County:—We are
making 'a collection - of natural speci
..!ons belonging to this county, such - as
be classified under the departments
Botany, Geology, Mineralogy, &c.,
and such specimens from the animal
ingdom as may be preserved and cared
col at - a reasonable expense. In addi
tllsr. to this, we are desirous of procuring
a section of all the native trees of the
con ii Ly.
fu order to be successful in this :un
dertaking, we must have the coopera
tii of the inhabitants. of the county.—
We therefore appeal to you to aid us.
Will you not give the.,attention of your
leisure 'moments to this subject, and
seini- is such specimens as may come
hi.:-your reach,—skins of animals,
tat t- nests, birds' eggs, bills, claws,
hunts, &c., or anything that you deem
of any peculiar interest either for sci
e lice or novelty.. Any unnatural growths
in the -vegetable or mineral kingdom,
irrionsston,in-shape,or kind, etc.
The sections from the trees of the
county we should like to have six inch
es' in
- length and about two inches in di
.imeter, one end cut directly across the
grain, and the other at an angle say of
tort y ve degrees, or thereabouts.
nese specimens will be labeled, clas
sified, and put up in eases, or upon
and open for the inspection and
el:amination of- - all who feel interested.
Will not the citizens of the county Aid
i this work? This collection i 5 not
Made alone for the pupils of to
day, but tdr the generations that come
after us. We want, if possible, to make
this institution 'a great " &ore-house of
Knowledge," in all its departments,
where any : and all may come and gather
treasure, both new and old.
Is not our aim a laudable one" Will
you not therefore assist us? It will aid
in the advancement of education ; it
will add to the treasures of science; it
will make us better acquainted with Na
ture, God's great book—ever open to us,
but 'read by few ; it will make us wiser
and better, and consequently happier.
Scattered about us in all directions are
the treasures of knowledge. Shall they
lie buried or unlocked for want of seek
ers? Interrogate nature, and she gives
us.prompt and truthful answers.
We hope in process of time to pro
curea skilful taxidermist, to aid us in
.preserving specimens from the animal
kingdom belonging to this county.—
Some of the animals of the county are
fast passing away. I doubt much whe
ther the elk, that once roamed our for
ests, can now beiound in our borders.
, Again we appeal to you to aid us..-.. Let
every locality send us something pecu
liar to itself, or such as is common to
other localities. -. 1)() not fear of sending
duplicates, for with these, should we
get them, w propose making exchang
e's with oth counties.
Any communication touching this
subject will be promptly attended to.—
In conclusion, let me extend to you a
cordial invitation
s to visit our institu
tion, whenever it may slit your conve
nience. We are anxious to establish a
more intimate relationship between the
citizens of this county and the school.
,You will ever find the latch-string out.

October .16, 1S&.
I've heerd folks say that the women
Was contrary. - Well,- they is a little so ;
Wit if- you manage 'em right—haul in
here and let them out there—you can
drive 'em alongwithout a whip orSpur,
just which way yoti wish 'ern to go.
When I lived down at Elton there
was a good many first rate girls down
there, but I didn't take a likin to any of
'em -till Squire Cummins cum down
there to live. The Squire had a mighty
pretty darter. I said some of the gals
• were- first rate, but Nancy Crimmins
was first rate and a little more. There
was many dressed finer and looked'
grander, but there was something jam
up about NancY, that they didn't hold
a candle to. If a feller seed her once he
couldn't look at another for a week. I
tuk a likiu to her sight oti, and we got
as thick as thieves.
We used to go to the same meetin,
and the same pew. It took me to
find sarms and hymns for her; and we
would swell 'em out in-a manner shock
in to hardened sinners; and then we'd
mosey home together, while the gals
and fellers kept a lookin on us as tho'
they'd like to mix in. I'd always stay
to supper; and the way she could make
injun cakes, and the way I could slick
'em with merlaSses and put away, was
notbin to nebody. She was dreadful
civil to, and alWays gettiu- somethin
nice for me.
I was up to the hub in love, and was
goin for it like a locomotive. Well,
things went ou in this way for a spell,
till she had me tight enough. Then she
begun to show off, kinder independent

like. When I'd go to meetin there was
no room in the pew ; then she'd come
streak it off with another chap, and
leave me suckin my finger at the door.
Instead of stickin to me- as she used to
do, she'd got to cuttin round with all
the other fellers; just asif she cared no
thin about me no more—none at all
I got considerably riled—and I thot
might as well come to the end of it at
once ; so down I went to have it out
with her. There was a hull grist of fel
lers there. They seemed mighty quiet
till I went in ; then she got talkin all
manner of nonsense. Said nothin to
me, and darned little of that. I tried
to keep niy dander down, but it want
any use—l kept moving about as if I
had a pin in my trovv-sers ; I sweat as if
I had been thrashin. My collar hung
down as if it had been hung over my
stock to dry.
I eouldnq stand it ; so I cleared out as
quickly as I could, for I seed 'twas no
use to say nothin to her. I went strait
to bed, and thought the matter over a
spell. Thinks I, that gal is just tryin
of me; 'taint no use of our playin pos
sum ; I'll take the kink out of her; if I
don't fetch her out of that high grass,
use me for sausage meat.
I heard tell of a boy once that got to
school late one morning. Master says:
" You tarilal sleepin critter, what has
kept you so late?"
" Why," says the boy, " it's so ever
lastin slippery I couldn't get along, no
how ; every step I took forward I went
two steps backward, and couldn't have
got here at all, if I hadn't turned back
to go tother way."
Now that's just my case. I have a
been putting after that gal a considera
ble time. Now, thinks I, I'll go tother
way—she's been slitin of me, and now
I'll slite her. 'What's sass for the goose
is sass for the gander.
Well, I went no more to - Nancy's.—
The next Sunday I slicked up, and I do
say, when I got my &sins ou, I took
the shine clear off any specimen of hu
man natur in our parts. About meetin
time I put off to Mr. Elthum Dodge's.
Patience Dodge was as nice a gal as
you'd see twist here and yender, any
more than that she wasn't just like
Nancy Cummins. Ephraim Massey
had used to go to see her; he was a clev
er feller, but he was dreadful jealous.—
Well, I went to meetin with Patience,
and set right afore Nancy. I didn't set
my eyes on her till after meetin. She
had a feller with her who had a blaiin
red head, and legs like a pair of coropa
ses ; she had a face as long as a thanks
giving dinner. I knowed who she was
thinkin about, and it-wasn't the chap
with the red head nuther.
Well, I got to beauin Patience about
a spell. Kept my eye on "Nancy ; seed
the eat was jumpin. -She didn't.cut
about like she did, and looked rather
solemuly. She'd a gin her two eyes to
kiss and make up. I kept it up until I
liked to have got into a muss about Pa
tience. The critter thot I was goin ar
ter her for good, and got as proud as a
tame turkey.
One day . .tphe cum down to our place
lookin as rathy as a milishy otilcer on
traiuin day.
" Look here," says he, as loud as a
small clap of thunder, "Seth Strokes,
I'll be darned—"
" Hollow!" says I, " what's broke?"
" Why," says he, " I've cum down to
have satisfaction about Patience Dodge.
Here I've been courtin her ever since
last year, and she was just as good as
mine, till you cum to goin arter her,
and now 1 can't touch her with a forty
foot pole."
" Why," says I, " what are you talk
in about ? I aint got nothin to do with
your gal ; hut sposin I had, there's noth
in for you to get wolfy about. If the
gal has taken a likin to me, taint my
fault ; if I've taken a likin to her, taint
her fault ; and if we've taken to each
other, taint your fault. But I aint so
almighty taken with her, and you may
get her for all me ; so you hadn't ought
to get savage about nothin."
• `• Well," says he, rather cooled down,
" I'm the unluckiest thing in creation.
I went tother day to a place where was
an old woman died of seme'disease, and
they, were sellin out her things. Well,
there was a thunderin big chist of draw
ers; full of all sorts of truck ; so I bo't
it, and thot 1 bad made a speck; but
when I cum to look at 'em, there wasn't
nothin in it worth a cent, except an old
silver thimble, and that was all rusted
up; so I sold it for less than I gave for
it. Well, when the chap that bought
it took it home, he heard somethin rat
tle—broke the old ehist, and found lots
of gold in it in a false bottom I hadn't
" Now. if I had tuck that chist hum,
they'd all been counterfeit, andTd been
taken up for passin on 'em. Well, I
jest told Patience about it, and she call
ed me a darned fool."
" Well," says I, " Ephe, tbat'slard ;
but never mind that—jest go on—you
can rile the rough edges off jest as you
please." •
That tickled him, it did ; and away
he went, a little better pleased.
Now, thinksl, it's time to look after
Nancy. Next day darn I went. Nan
cy was all alone. I asked her if the
Squire was in. She said he warnt.
" Cause," says I, kmakin believe I
wanted him,) " our old colt spavined
his foot, and I come to see if the Squire
wont lend me his mare to go to town."
She said she_guessed he would ; better
net down till he cum in. She looked
queer all around the edges of her mouth.
After awhile, says I :
`Are you gun' down to Betsy Mar
tin's quiltin
Said she " I don't know for sartin;
are you goin?"
Said I, " reckon I will."
Said she, " I spose you'll take Miss
Patience Dodger"
Said I, " Mout, and agiu snout not."
Said she, " I heard yott and her are
*An to get married."
" Said I, " Shouldn't wonder a bit
-Patience is a trii_alaty nice gal." And
I looked at Nancy ; T seed the tears
Says I, "Maybe she'll ask you-to be
She ris up, she did, her face as did as
a baled beet.
"Seth trokes!" says she, and she
could say nothin more, she was so mad.
"Won't you be the bridesmaid?" said
"No!" said she, and she bursted rite
out ervin.
"NI , ell, tb ‘ en," says I, "if you won't
be bridesmaid, will you be the bride?"
She looked up at me—l swan to man
I never seed any thin so awful pooty !
I took rite hold of her hand.
"Yes or no," says I, "right off,"
"Yes," zs.ays she.
" That's yer sort," says I, and give her
a buss and a hug.
