ror'ented and happy. ) am stiJl a
bailor, contented but cot happy.
Till is the difference between Thomas
Growler of a month ago and the same
person today. 15ut one short month ago
I thought nothing of matrimony. I
smoked my pipe in comfort at my lodg
ings (in the city of Canterbury) or sewea
refractory buttons upon my clothing
without a thought of any female to
take that employment out of my hands.
But 1 was one day seated in the beau
tiful grounds of the Daue John, watch
in the children drinking at the foun
tain, when a shadow fell upon the path.
It might have been the shadow of eom
lng events, but upon looking around I

very beautiful young lady, with rogu
ish blue eyes that might have been the
headquarters if fun and good humor,
looking at me from a frame of golden
Now, you need not imagine that I,
sober gentlemen of 40, was in love
withagirL Nothing of the kind. She
was at least 30, and a ragged little boy
who stood near, whose tongue I loos
ened with a piece of silver, told me
that she was a widow, who owned a
mail f,.rm niitside the town, and tuat
her name was Mrs. Faber. He also in
formed me that her brother lived with
her and managed the property.
Upon the following morning I great
ly surprised my friend, Harry Powers,
by praising the Widow Faber, and re
questing an introduction. He gazed
at me a moment in speechless aston
ishment, and I think that he really
thought of knocking me down with
Webster's Dictionary and calling for
assistance. But Harry was engaged
himself, and soon comprehended the
state of afiairy. So he dropped the
Itook upon the table and invited me to
a picnic which was to take place in the
woods in a few days, where I should
meet the lady and be introduced.
I immediately purchased a new suit
f clothes, a beautiful wig and a pair
of tight boots, and when the morning
of the festival dawned crowded .myself
into the broadcloth, put on my wig,
and after much preparation and stroug
language had been wasted managed to
sqn-eze my feet iuto the patent leath
ers, where they felt as if incased in red
hot iron boot.
At the picnic 1 received the prom
ised introduction, and had the pleasure
of escorting Agnes all day. She talked
with me, aud we attacked the stables
In company, investigating the interior
of pigeon pies and dissecting chickens
together. I was happy all day, and
when at parting she invited me to visit
her I believe the tightness ny waist
coat was all tht prevented my heart
from bursting its bonds. My feet pre
vented me from sleeping that night,
but I was willing to suffer in such
cause, and I bore it without a murmur.
One day 1 hired a horse and gig at
the livery stable, and started toward
the farm to carry Anges to a party at a
neighboring town. She was already
dressed when I drove up, and looked
beautiful in a new bonnet and shawl.
We were very comfortable and our
conversation was very interesting. I
was advancing rapidly in her good
opinion, and was beginning to think
seriously of popping the question, when
the horse stopped suddenly as if turned
to stone. We both tumbled suddenly
foffurd with a low bow, and my com
pamws lovely nose came into sharp
contact with the dashboard.
I immediately jumped out to see
what was the matter, but everything
about the horse appeared to be all
right, and I again climbed into the gig
and prepared to start. But the horse
obstinately refused to move. I coaxed
and flattered, but be would not be per
suaded. I thrashed him with the whip
until my wrist ached, but he remained
immovable as a statue. At last I
sharpened a hedge stake, took my seat,
gave the reins to my companion and
him a tremendous blow. I hardly hoped
to see him stir, but he did, and started
with a leap that almost threw me on
my back. 1 immediately seized the
reins, but his determination had taken
another channel, and he would not
stop. I tugged at the reins and shouted
''Whoa!" but be held the bit between
his teeth and rushed along the road
like a runaway comet
Agnes screamed and 1 roared as we
dashed by the farm houses with the
I of a locomotive. The horse's
i splintered the dashboard at every
leap, and the bright shoes twinkled

XltrC fcawjr tarn for the
wrecked gig. I was scratched and dis
couraged. Agnes had turned the cold
shoulder and I was in despair, nui i
wrote her a letter explaining matters
and begging to be again taken into
favor. 1 was overjoyed to .'receive an
encouraging reply. She forgave me
and would not give me up, but her
brother was very angry and would not
permit her to see me. If 1 wouiu
come upon the following evening to
the farm I could reach her window by
means of the grapevine, and we couiu
think the matU-r over.
This letter cheered me wonderfully
and when the clock struck 9 upon the
fniinwin-nurht I walked gaily to the!
farm, passed around to the rear and
perceived a white figure at the window.
A large dog, which was lasi'-ueu m
kennel under the window, threateud to
raise an alarm, but a few words from
Agnes quieted him. I clambered up
the vine and was soon at her side, I
was so happy that the grapevine might
have been the ladder to paradise.
Agnes was forgiving and lovely, and
we conversed for an half hour without
a thoutrht of the lower world.
I was calmly gazing at the farm
which would soon be my own when the
door opened. Upon turning I saw the
obnoxious brother standing in the door
way with a very suspicious whip in his
hand. He looked angry, and 1 imme
diately comprehended his purpose. It
was not in human n dure to remain
quiet, and w hen he sprang toward me
with an angry howl I answered with a
yell, and springing through the window
began slipping down the vine.
I would no doubt have made a
masterly retreat, but I was a few feet
from the top when the brother cut the
fastenings with his knife, and the vine
and myself fell together. Unfortu
nately I dropped upon the roof of the
kenneL The roof not being able to
hold showers of fallen humanity, gave
away, and 1 tumbled directly into the
jaws of the bulldog. The jaws, with a
howl, fastened upon my leg, and for a
moment there was a terrible battle be
tween us. At last the dog unfastened
to take a fresh bite, and I took advant
aare for the moment to get away; but
my enemy again fastened upon my
coat tails, and as I could not drag dog
aud kennel over the fence I was unable
The dog pulled one way and I the
other, and for a while the issue was
very doubtful, but I caught a glimpse
of one of the farm laborers advancing
with a pitchfork and gave a desperate
jerk. It was too much for the strongest
of cloth, and leaving the torn portion
in the dog's possession, I bounded
away toward the barnyard fence. But
I discovered in time that I was charg
ing upon the couched pitchfork of the
servant and. turnine quickly to the
right, took a fifing leap over the gar
den wall Unluckily I attempted to
fly without wings; my feet caught in
the stones and I turned a somersault
into the garden.
Instead of falling upon the grass
dived headforemost iuto a straw bee
hive. The beehive went over on the
ground and I followed; but the bees
were the first to pick themsslves up,
and when I arose to my feet a whole
colony was ready to settle upon nie.
Tney swarmed in my hair, and
crawled under my clothing until I was
frantic. The more I stamped and beat
and raved, the more they stung me,
At last I gave a stamp of tremendous
force: my tight patent leathers burst.
and just as my feet protuded at the
sides I stepped in the overturned hive
I meght as well stepped in the fire; the
little tormentors stung my feet, and I
danced like a bear upon hot plates for
the same reason.
i was stm wildly beating the air
when I perceived all the farm servants
whom my shouts had aroused, charg
mg in a body. They shouted "Thief,1
and flourished their weapons and
began to think of leaving that neigh
borhood in a hurry. But i was deter
mined upon revenge. I could not be
stung any worse than I was; so I
grasped the hive that stood upon the
bench and hurled it into the crowd.
I had the pleasure of seeing it drop
upon the brother's head like a huge
hat, and to see the individual throw it
off and roll upon the ground in anguish.
I never derived so much pleasure from
hearing a person swear before.
I could hear my pursuers breathing
hard near me, and expected every mo
ment to feel the spikes of the pitch
fork behind, when I stumbled over a
stone and fell headlong into the river.
The men behind, unable to check them
selves, followed, and the next moment
we were all struggling in the water.
It was not deep, and was the best
accident that could have happened to
me, as it rid me of the . bees. I soon
arose and scrambled up the steep bank,
where I stood to look around. In one
place a head appeared above the water;
in another a pair of feet kicked in the
air, without any visible owner. Hats,
pitchforks and men were mixed in a
confused heap, while all plunged and
pulled like a shoal of porpoises. Al
though I was smarting with pain the
scene was too ludicrous to be gazed on
with a sober countenance, and I
laughed until I could roar no longer.

A robust man of about (5 years of
age entered the oflice of the board of
auditors a day or two ago. He called
Auditor Ilolihan aside and related the
following: "In the year 1840 I arrived
in the city of Detroit, sick and desti
tute. I went to the mayor, whose
name I have forgotten, laid my case
before him, and he kindly allowed me
quarters in the county house. I was
there three weeks, and now I want to
square myself with the county for the
favors rendered." V liereat the robust
man pulled out two 850 bills and waited
for the astonished Ilolihan to gather
himself. "Why." exclaimed Mr. lloli
ban, "that was fifty years ago, and, of
course; there is no charge against you,

paying up. He urged so firmly that
Mr. Ilolihan finally accepted S15 and
covered the sum back into the treasury.

of his history and refused his name.

Where the Ass Amuses a Crowd.
The common people ot Cairo resort
to the exhibitions of mountebanks who
teach camels, asses and dogs to dance.
The dancing of the ass is diverting
enough. After he has frisked and
capered sufficiently his master tells him
that the sultan means to build a great
palace, and will have to employ all the
asses in carrying mortar, stones and
oilier materials. , u pon ims tne ass
falls down with his feet upward, clos
ing his eyes and extending his chest as
if he were dead.
The owner loudly bewails his loss
and appeals to the bystanders for alms
to make it good. Then, having collec
ted as much as possible, he announces
that the ass is not really dead, but be
ing sensible of his master's necessity
has played a trick to secure provinder.
lie commands the ass to rise, but the
brute remains motionless in spite of all
the blows he can give him. At last he
proclaims that by virtue of an edict of
tlie sultan all the handsome ladies are
bound to ride out the next day upon
the comeliest asses they can find in
order to see a triumphal show, and
that the ladies are to entertain their
beasts with oats and Nile water. These
words are no sooner pronounced than
the ass rises up, prances and leaps for
joy. The master then declares that the
ass has been pitched upon by the war
den of his street to carry his deformed
and ugly wife, upoa wttafc the ass low

History of the Turkey.
The turkey is a lineal descendant
from the wild North American species
which was found in Mexico by the
Spaniards at the time of the conquest,
both wild and domesticated. The
Spanish soldiers and sailors introduced
it into the West India islands under
the name of pavon, or peacock.
From the West Indies tli9 bird was
taken to Spain, where It was called
pavon de las India. The French
called it dindon, a contraction of cop
d'lnde. Evidently the East Iudies
were confounded with the West, for
when this fowl was introduced Into
Germany it was known as the "Calicut
Maj. AV. Bess King says that the bird
was introduced into England about
1520 to 1521, and that it received the
name w hich it has since borne simply
because it was the custom to refer the
origin of all strange and foreign articles
to Turkey. It would not be at all Bur

Headers will recall how In the time
of the Crusades, a few contitrie before
it had been the practice to speak of all
Mohammedan people as Saracens,
while the iact was that people were
but a small tribe in Araba. The in
stances are quite parallel
When the fowl was brought to this
country, its original home, it kept the
name which had been given it in Eng
land, and more than that it anve this
name to the undomesticated variety,
which has since been" knowa as the
wild turkey. The circle was completed,
and a bird that belonged exclusively to
this continent, without having gone
away from its home at all, got credit
for having been brought from the east,
It is a good example of the confusion

The Management of Children.
If you would see a woman or a child
graceful, beautiful and charming, you

corrected or criticised for every word
or movement never has a manner of
elegance or an expression of charm.
t ill your child s soul with an ideal of
good manners, of benevolence and
beauty; teach it abstractly to dislike
vulgarity, selfishness, rudeness and to
feel that you love and admire it, and
expect of it charming manners, and
the work is accomplished.
