Why : Do Not Our Teeth Last 'Our 'Life

Thai- they are made:'perfect, • if:tlie
right materials are furnished, -there
cannot be a doubt.
,But are the necessary elements fur
nished to children as they are the
young of other animals? And do
not subject our teeth to deleterious in
fluences from which animals that obey
their natural instinct are exempt.
The former young of other- animals,
while dependent on the mother, get
lime, and phosphorus, and potash, and
silex, -and all .the other elements of
- which the teeth are composed, from the
blood or milk of the mother, and she
gets them from the food which Nature
'provides, containing these elements in
their natural proportions. ' •
But where' can the child in its form-.
ing state get'these-,necessary elements,
whose mother 'lives chiefly on starch,
and Witter, and sugar, neither of which
contains a particle of lime, phosphorus,
potash or silex ? She makes teeth as
glass is linade, by combining the ele
ments which compose them according
to her o . wn , chemical principles. And
this illustration is the more forcible be
cause the composition of the enamel of
the teeth airth of &SA' is very nearly
identical; both, at least, requiring -the
'Combination of silex with some alkal
principle. •
If, then, the mother of an unborn or
.nursing infant lives on white brcad anti
butter, pastry tind confectionery; which
contain no silex, and verylittle of the
of her elements which compose tliq teeth,
liothing s ort of a miracle can give her
a child with good teeth, and especially
with teeth , ell enameled._

Co. 'Witness gets off, the best skunk
story of the season :
The " other day a couple of - German
women were walking along the road
some four or five miles south of Platte
ville, when they came across what they
supposed to be a very handsome kitten.
Being in want ofmuch an animal one
of them caught it and carried it in her
apron until she procured a sack from
elle of the neighbors to take it home in.
It was -scoured in the sack, and they
walked'off gaily pleased with their ac
quisition. Before theY had .gone very
far one of then? snuffed around and
asked, " Vas riecht so?" ' The other
" Telt weis nicht. Veilich ist es
die grass." 4 .` Nein," said the other,
" Dtis ktut ts muss,die katz
in sack sein. SehmeiSs doch des ein
felling ding awoc." But the. other
persisted in holding on to her treasure
until they got home, when the hus
band of one of them promptly des
patched the animal with a club. The
women said they never before came
across n cat with stich a had breath.

The conversation was interrupted by
the entrance of a young and beautiful
girl, at ,Thom cousin Dick started with
a surprised and troubled look.
"Pardon me, madam," she said in a
voice' remarkably sweet and gentle;
"not knowing you were engaged, I see if you wished me, as usual,
to; you to day."
"PreScotty, dear," Mrs. Varley an
swered in a , tone that plainly hinted
lier.visitors would not be prossod to stay
if they offered to go.
Atter an awkward pause, the two
cousins took their departure together.

as soon as they reached the street.

"Not yet, I think ; but no time is to

be well for us to talk together;" and
the two hurried rapidly along.
Mrs.! Varley had occasionally found
time hang heavy on her hands, and so
had advertisedfor a suitable person to
fill the post of- companion to an aged
lady. it was thus that Hester Darling
had become an inmate of the house.
At as early an hour as was seemly on
the morning following that on . which
we introduced them to the reader,
Roger and Dick again presented them
selves before their cousin.
"We have thoughtito,urduty, cousin,"

much rifle.(?) Went by the Marsh road,
and the par y dropped me. at Canada
itun, where we had alight Skiff', which
I WaS expected to run from there to
muskrat Eddy on Pine Creek. I did
it-. ' I could have . done it much 'easier
had • water been. plentier--or at least
more evenly distributed, with, less ob
structions in the shape of ripples, bars,
eh lotus, old logs, snags, roots blown
doWn trees, etc. As the water was not
in navigable shape, it would have im- -
proved the thing to have diluted It
slightly with Bourbon;
a little—even a
half pint—would have been equal to a
steam scow on obstructions. It was an.
Oversight ou the part of my friends,
for which they , made amends When I
ran into them, seven miles, lower down.
We came at "the Eddy," andl assure
you we had the whole thing to our,-
selves :---didn't hear a civilized • sound
while we worethere.
How is it that every fellow who goes
into camp with me, makes a dead set
at me on rigging? The way that party
picked at me was awful, and I had n't
"done nothin"—to speak of yet, they
just made a dead set at me until bed
time 'each night. All accidents 'in
camp are on my head by common con
sent. If a fellow gets tight, and a brand
rolls down and blisters his toes while
he is sleeping it off; if another chap
reduceS himself to temporary blindness
'through mixing his percussion-caps-and
ee, its me that did it! "whereas, I was
the man's best friend, and helped him
with the sweat of my brow till it poured
clown like rain." (,Rogue.Riderhood.)
Well, we had a jovial time of it, and
the hardest part was the leaving, get
ting back . to the clearings and settling
to the treadmill again.
There was one little' incident that
made the camp'lively for a time: a fine
doe came down the Eddy runway and
dashed' across the stream within easy
pistol shot. , The' creek was high from
the late rains—the doe was just scared
enough to run, and she made running
that was just poetry—the " poetry of
motion ;" there wasn't a thing in camp
,that would shoot (pistols there were,
but of the other kind.) Then , there
caihe down the mountain two spotted
hounds, making strange cries that were
hard to understand, 'until they swam
across, and we saw that their heads
were, just stuck full of porcupine quills,
inside and out; their tongues, lips, and.
even throats were filled like a brush ;
yet, poor devils, they hung to the track,
and it was with difficulty we caught
them. We tied them and hold a con
sultation on the state of affairs, where
in it was decided that a party of hunt
ers could do no less than oiler all the aid
in their power to a good hound in dis
tress. We adjourned fishing, made two
pairs of wooden pincers, led out and
gigged a long-eared miserable; elected
Derhy dog-holder and BUsh general
liottle 7 holder and - referee, while the
Captain and I were to do the heavy
pulling. It was an afternoon's job, but
two good hounds UM were doomed tog
death of torture without sudden help,
are now in running condition and well
calculated to enjoy canine felicity..
Ferowell to the camp on the Limits of the Eddy,
Where We frightened the herons with laughter
and song.
Our skiff is haul9d up and the knapsacks aro
The whisky runs short—and the journey is long!

DAY.—Seat yourself at a table. At
tach a piece of metal (say a shilling) to'
a thread. Having placed your.elbow
on a table, hold thelthread between the
points of the thimib and forefinger, anti
allow the shilling to bang in the centre
of a glass tumbler.. The pulse will im
mediately ttause the shilling to vibrate
like a pendulum, and the vibrations
will increase until the . shilling strikes
the sides of the glziss ;' and suppose the
time of the experiment be at the hour
of 7, or half past 7, the pendulum will
sirike the glass seven times, and then
lose its momentum . and return to the
centre ; if you hold tbe thread a sutli
eient length of time, the effect will ye
repeated; but not until a sufficient
length of time has elapsed to convince
you that the experiment is complete.—
We need not add that the thread must
be held with a steady hand, otherwise
the vibrating motion would be contrac
ted. At whatever hour of tho day or
night the experiment is made, the coin
cidence will be the same.

DULYING A YOUNG ilonsE..—ln teach
ing a young horse to drive well, do not
hurry to see how fast he can go. Keep
each pace clear and distinct from the
other, that in walking make him
walk and do not allow him to trot.—
While trotting, be equally careful that
lie keeps steady at his pace, and do not
allow him to slack into a walk. , The
reins while driving, should, be sung;
and when pushed to the :top of his
speed keep him well in hand that he
may learn to bear upon the bit, sa that
when going at a high rate of speed he
can be held at his pace,-hut do not al
low him to pull too bard, for it is not
only unpleasant, but makes it often dif
ficult to manage him. -
