I lia,l once the misfortune to be a
bookseller, an itinerant one, I mean
one of those who go throrjgh the coun
try (that's iliclr story) not because
they like the business, or that "it fays"
but for the benevolent purpose of en
lightening the world; for the especial
benefit of their fellow "human beings."
That's the Idnd of a mission necessity
called upon me to go on, and I went.
A carpet-bag, a blue, cotton um
brella, several 'specimen conies of
works too stale to find :stale, without
the in the bookstores, a small, leath
er-batiked blank book to receive sub
scribcrs' names, and I was accoutered
for the "tramp." . .. .
I? t.cccmpanied by the above . men
tioned accompaniments, . accordingly,
one autumn morning, mounted the vil
lage post-chaise) a clumsy, ricketly
veliicle, which plied, weekly between
Beanville and a portion of country
commonly known as the "uncivilized
regions," to vrhich I, with the very best
motives, directed my course.
After rolling, rumbliDg - and turn
bling over "corduroy" roads for about
fifte n miles, I got out, at a very smal
town, bid my gruff friend the coach
driver a rather brief adieu, and struck
out into the eauntry. - -
-I soon brought. up to a farmer's
house, surrounded with stables and
pig-stys in rather close.; proximity
amcnjT which I found the old fellow
feeding his hogs.
"Good morning," said I, with a
bow. ' . . :
After staring at me for about ami
nute, he managed to mutter "mornin!'
and then went to punching the larger
"porkers" to prevent their taking the
advantage of their smaller brethren.
"lias nromise oi a tine dav, l re
marked. ; ' '
A shrng of his shoulders was my
only answer; accordingly I changed
"Got some fine hogs there," I ven
tured to say. - "
"Footy good," was his reply as he
left off List admonitory exercise, sat
doivnliis slop-pail and looked in my
face rather inquisitively.
"Weigh about three hundred."
- "Guess . they .'will, stranger," he
chuckled, "mighty fine hogs, thern."
, "Specking of hogs," wouldn't you
like to buy a boot on 'live stock V "
"A look) stranger; I never know'd
you could fatten the 'critters' with
books or newspapers cither." .
"O, yes I I returned, "books arc
valuable assistants ia farming general
ly, and keeping stock, in particular.
"Feed 'em whole, or- chopped up,
was his query i
"You are mistaken in my meaning,
I repliccL "You clo not feed your
books to youf stock, but from1 their
pages learn the proper method offeed-
inz ilicm on (Train."
"O, bother to your nonsense," he
grovrlingly remarked as he moved off.
"Jist as if I warn'! the oldest stock
raiser in these parts. And," continued
he, "I ain't a goin': to have my 'xperi-
ence made fun of in that way neither'-
I went out at the gate, but prompted
by mischievousness turned, as he
reached his porch, and hallooed, "Say,
old fellow, better buy a book on geese
' "Here Ti:rer! Here Pomp!" shout
ed he, as he dropped his pail by the
door, and at his -call two ferocious ani
malsa mixture of hound and cur
responded with their immediate pre
fence and confounded hcicls. -'
"Look there !" said he, pointing" at
mv swiftly vamcsiE fcrm "nail him!
! 7 .
The voracious brutes insfantlv obey-
ed, and before I made ' three hundred
; yards from the house the tanral var
mints came so close upon mc that
wr.s obliged to "tree," which I facsti
ously accomplished by" swrnging my
self "into the fork'of a' friendly
pling near by, taking my carpet-sack
with me and all, just in time to escape
he gnarling "incissors" of 4Tiger."
.The way they "caved" around that
ree was beautiful, leaping and yelling,
yelling and leaping till the focra drop
ped from their jaws in prodigious drops,
and I, the. while kindly assisting them
by flinging down upon their irritated
backs squads of green, hard walnuts.
For the first half hour the fun was
all on my side, and I enjoyed ii; huge-
y; but presently the walnuts became
scarcer, and in proportionate ratio the
owls pi en tier, until only .
The fear of something that undiscovered country'
cept me from precipitating myself on
"icrra fcrma" right "in their midst."
After reasoning the 'matter ' in my
own mind for some minutes, I finally
settled down - on my perch, with as
much dignity as under the circum
stances I could command," persuading
myself it was quite a romantic posi
tion after all, and determined to "take
things as they come." The infernal
hounds done the same, seating . them
selves quietly on the ground, one on
each side of the sapling, and from
their upturned snouts an occasional
whine burst forth.
Noon came on and I began to grow
hunCTV. " A similar feeling seemed to
be prompting my guardians, for their
anxiety ivas evidently increasing every
moment; ; They again circled the tree
howling and tearing the"bark from the
trunk and leaping in the air in th vain
hope of tearing me from my asylum.
" The old farmer returned from his
field to dinner I saw him come down
to the crate in the direction of head-
quarters."- I felt relieved; I felt cef
tain he would call away his dogs, "and
let me go.
"Sic him Tige sic him Pomp I"
shouted he, and waving his straw - hat
over his head several times, accompa
nied with a couple of stentorian yells
he quietly returned to the house. , The
dogs, as a matter of course, pitched
their tune from C to A and kept on.
O, how . I wished ". for a Sharpe's
rifle, a Colt pistol, the old "fuzee" I
shot birds with in days -gone by, or
even, the "sross-bow" ..of my. juvenil
ity. . . ,: - .
xlthoughno cannibal, I could with
gravity almost have drunk the blood
of them, 'tarnal curs-r-provided I
could have got it I was, at any rate,
awful hungry, and thirstier than hun
gry, and madder than thirsty.
In about an hour the old straw hat
came down so the ate again, accom
panied by its owner, but instead of
halting and going through with man
euvers, the two came on leisurely to
ward Gur (my and the dogs') station.
"Got any books trcatin on geese',
to sell here, hey ?" said the old fellow,
as he came up.
I hadn't a word to say for myself.
"See here, stranger, you must be
puriy good game, or them 'ere dogs
wouldn't stick to you so close. Now
Tve got a bit of a bargain to perpose
to you. If you'll throw me that carpet-sack
o' journ, books and all down
here, Til take these dogs away and let
you go home and go to weedin' corn
for your daddy or some other sensible
'mplovment. Decide quick, -for Fm
in a hurry and Tige and Pomp can
can watch you till mornin', if you
haven't time to make up your' mind im

Prl "valnables" "scese works", and
all at him, which he seized instanter
nr.fl nnrr.hpd off with , "Tirre" and
"Pomp" at his heels. I shed no tears;
not that I loved the carpet-sack I
bui feared these curs nwrc ; and when
thfi o-fitft closed on thoso bipeds, I slid
from my perch and doped.

We quote the following, written by
Rev. H. W. Beech eh, from the N. Y.
God's pity abides, even as He abi
des, and partakes of the divine grand
eur and omnipotence, lhere is a
whole eternity in it, for substance and
"duration. As God himself cannot be
measured with lines of latitude and
longitude, but is boundless, so is His
every attribute. His pity is infinite,
moving with equal step to all the oth
er attributes of liod, and holdms his
course and path as far forth as omni
science doth; it passes with omnipre
sence along the circuits of infinity !
.tor as heaven is high above the earth,
so great is His mercy toward them
that fear Him. As far as the east is
far from the west so far hath He re
moved our transgressions from us !
God's pity ia not as some sweet
cordial, poured in . dainty drops from
some golden phial. It is net like the
musical water-drops of some slender
rills murmurin down the dark sides
of Mount Sinai. It is wide a3 the
whole cope of heaven. It is abundant
as all tho air. If one had art to gath- j
er up all the golden sunlight that to
day falls wide over all this continent
falling through every silent hour; and
all that is dispersed over the whole
ocean, Hashing from every wave; and
all that is poured refulgent over the
northern wastes of ice, and along the
whole continent of Europe, and the
vast outlying Asia and torrid Africa ;
if one could in any way gather up this
immense and incalculable outflow and
treasure of sunlight that falls down
through the bright hours, and runs in
liquid ether about the mountains, and
fills all the plains, and sends innumer
able rays through every secret place,
pouring over and filling every flower,
shining down the sides of every blade
of grass, Testing in glorious humility
upon the humblest, things---on stick,
and stone, and pcbhle; on the spider's
web, the sparrow's nest, the threshold
of the young foxes' hole, where they
play and warm themselves that rests
on the prisoner s window, that strike
radiant heam3 through the slave's tear,
that puts gold upon the.fldow's weeds,
that plates and roofs the city with
burnished gold, and goes on in its wild
abundance np and down the earth,
shining everywhere, and always, since
the . day of primal creation, without
ialtenng, without stint, without waste
or diminution; as full, as fresh, as over
flowing to-day, as if it were the very
first day of its outplay! if one might
gather up this boundless, endless, in
finite treasure, to measure it' then
miht he tell the heigh! ccc depth; and
unending glory of the pity of God!
In light in the sun, its source you
have Ixod s own figure of the immen
sity and copiousness of His mercy and
compassion. - -
This divine party applies to U3 on
account of our weakness. God looks
upon our littleness, as compared with
His angels that ' excel in strength,
much', it may be supposed as we look
upon little children as compared with
grown-up men. . . . ' 1
Divine pity is exercised in view of
our sufferings, both of body and of
mind. . Wc sometimes fear to brinz
our troubles to God, because they must
seent so mall.to llim: who sitteth on
the circle of the earth. ; But" if they
arelarre cnouh to vex and endanger
our. welfare j they are large enough to
touch LLis heart of love; For love
doe3 not . measure by a. merchtnis
scale,-nor with a surveyor's chain. It
hath a delicacy which is unknown in
any handling of material substance.
It sometimes seems as if God czrred
for nothing. The wicked are at case.
The good arc vexed incessantly. The
world is full of misrule and confusion.
The .darling of the flock is always
made the sacrifice." - Some . child, in
the very midst of its glee, becomes
suddenly silent as a music-box, its
spring civinfr way, stop3 in the midst
of its strain, and never plays oat the
melody. The mother staggers, and
wanders through day and night, as if
these were mingled into one, and that

By-and-by, when you gather their

T7ILL IT A YAHNING t "
A. correspondent of - the. .Boston
Journal savs that the wife of Hunting
ton, the forger, has been stripped of
her home and her all in one hour. The
sheriff has sold her house over .her
head. Her jewels, valued at 15,O00;
are with the Beldcn3. What has been
done with the vast sums Huntington
had, none can tell. But this is true,
that want, like .an armed . man,. has
come into his family. And .to keep
herself from absolute want she has
been compelled to par; with her clothes
and her little ornaments and remnants
of better days. So the career of crime
has one more beaten4 set iip in the
pathway of life one more family has
been hurled from the summit of high
position and honor in a moment one

her little children, on whose heads
dishonor has been e tamped, without
their fault, black as the brand of
Cain, and go out from a comfortable
home, to meet want, and scorn, and
brave the cold, glassy eye of the world,
and feel the hot breath of its sneer
one more example is given to us to
teach how the same talents which led
to high crime and the prison, employ
ed aright could confer honcr and per
manent success on the possessor, and
be a blessing to the land., Like a con
vict who falls from a ship, Huntington
has parted and agitated the waves for
a moment, and gone down beneath
the surge, and the rolling flood sweeps
over his place, and the tide cf life
waves on forgetting that he ever lived.
But who will be counselled, warned,
saved by his end? Who will believe
the lesson that thousands of years
have taught, that integrity and honor
are the only paths to permanent svz

ZISS 02 FIGHT. :
- There are few married men who are
not averse of seeing their wives kiss
ed. But an exchange relates the parti
culars of a case . in - which - a newly
wedded Benedict felt-himself insulted
because his wife wasn't kissed. : The
bridegroom in question was a stalwart
young rustic who was known as a for
midable operator in a "free fight." . His
bride was a blooming and beautiful
country girl, only sixteen yclrs of age,
and the twain were at a party where a
number of young folks of both -sexes
were 'enjoying themselves, in the good
old-fashioned, pSwn-playih' style.
Every girl ih the ropni was called out
and kissed except Mrs. B., the beauti
ful young bride aforesaid, although
there was not a youngster s present
who was not dying to taste her: lips
they were restrained by the presence
of her herculean husband, who stood
regarding the party with a look of sul
len dissatisfaction. They mistook the
cause of his anger, however, for sud
denly he expressed himself.
Rolling up his .sleeves, he stepped
into the middle of the room, , and in a
tone of voice that secured marked at
tention, said : "Gentlemen, I have been
noticing how things have, been, work
ing, here for seme time', and I ain't half
satisfied. I den t want to raise a fuss,
but" ' "What s the matter, John ?"
inquired half a dozen voices. "What
do you mean ! Have we done' any
thing to huTt your feelings?" , "Yes,
you have; all of you have hurt my
feelings, and I've got just this to say
about ifc. Here's every girl in the
room has been kissed nih a dozen
times a piece," and there s mv .wife,
who I consider as likely a3 any of 'cm,
has not had a single one to-night; and
I just tell you! now; ij; the don't get
as many kisses the balance of the time
as any gal in the room, the man that
slights her has got to. fight thaf s all.

The legend of a Jew ever wander
ing and never dying, even from tho
crucifixion cf Jesus to this day, has ' '
spread over many European countries.
The accounts, however, a 3 in all fab
les, do not agree. One version is this:
When Jesus wa3 led to death, oppres
sed by tho weight of the cross, he .
wished to rest himself a little near
the ate, before the house of a shoe
maker named Ahasuerus. Tms man.
however, sprang forth and thrust lirn
away; Jesus turned towards bib;
saying, "I shall rest, but thou shah
move on until I return' And freni
that; time hchas had no rest, and i:i
obligcd incessantly to wander about..
Another version is that given by Ma
thias -Parisicsaisj a monk 'of the thir
teenth century : When Jesus was led
from the tribunal of Pilatus to death;
the doorkeeper, named Cartafilius,
pushed him from behind with his feet,
saving : "Walk on, Jesus, quickly,
why dost thou tarry V Jcsxis looked
at him gravely, and said : "I walk or.,
but thou shall not tarry till I comcj-'
And this man, still alive; wanders from
place to place, inconstant dread of the "
wrath to come. . A third, legend add:?,
that this wandering Jew falls sick ev-
cry hundred years, but recovers; and
renews his .strength ; hence it js flat,
after so many cent-rics, he does not
look much older than septuagenarian.
Thus for the legends. Not one of tho
ancient authors makes eveii meiiticri
of such an account. The first who
