I'll just tell you how I got caught. I
was always the darbdesi, most tea cus
tard bashful fellow you ever did see ; it
wat kidder in tny line to be takeu with
the shakes every tune 1 saw a pretty gal
approaching me, and I would cross the
street any time ruiher than face one ;
twasn't because I didn't like the critters,
forif I was behind the fence looking at
a knot hole I couldn't look at one h tig
enough. Weir, sister Lib gave a
party one night, and I siayed away frcn
home because I was too bashfull to face
the music. I hung around ths house
whistling '01d Dan Tucker" dancing to
keep my feet warm, watching the heads
bobbing up and down behind the window
curtains, and wishing the thundering par
ty would bteak up, so I could get to my
room. I smoked up a bunch of cigars,
and as it was getting late and mighty
uncomfortable, I concluded to shin up the
door post, no sooner said than done, and
I soon found myself snug in bed.
Now," says I, "let her rip ! Dance
till your wind gives out.'' And cuddling
under the quilts, Mcrephus grabbed me.
I was dreaming of soft ahell crabs and
stewed tripe, and having a good time
when somebody knocked at the door and
woke me up. Rap" again. I laid Jo w.
"Rap, rap, rap,!" Then I heard a whis
pering, and I knew there was a whole
r?.'t of c!s outside. "Rap, rap,!" Then
Lih :-:ngs out:
" J;.lL are you there ?"
"Yes, says I."
Then came a roar of laughter.
"Let us in," said she.
"I won't" said I, "can't you let a fel
low alone ?"
"Are you a-be d ?" says she.
"I am," says I.
I won't," says I.
By thunder ! I began to get riled.
'Get out, you pettcoated scare-crows!"
cried I ; "can't you get a beau without
hauling a fellow out of bd ? I wont go
borne with you I won't so you may clear
And throwing a boot at the door I felt
better. But presently oh 1 mortal not
ions ! I heard a still small voice, very
like sister Lib's, and it said: -
-Jack, you'll have to get up' for all the
girls things are there."
Oh, Lord, what a pickle ! Think of roe
in bed, all covered with shawls, muffs,
bunnets and cloaks, and twenty girls out
side the door waiting to get in ! If I
had sloped to think I .should have pan
caked on the spot. A itwasl rolled est

sun was setting behind a hen-roost, the
bull-frogs were commencing their even

back, she was toying with my auburn
locks of jet black hue; she' was almost
gone and I was ditto She looked like
a grasshopper dying with the hiccups,
and I felt like a mud-turtle chocked with
a codfish ball.
"Sal," says I, in a voice as musical as
the notes of a dying swan,' "will you
have me ?"
She turned her eyes heavenward,
clatped me by the hand, had an attack
of tbe heaves and blind staggers, with a
sight that drew her shoe strings to her
palete, said :
She gave clear cut, then, and squated
in my lap. I hugged her till I broke my
suspenders, and her breath emelled of
onions she had eaten two weeks before.
Well, to make a long story short, she
sat the day, and we practiced for four
weeks every night and day how we would
enter the room to be married, till we get
so we could walk as graceful as couple

dropped a banana skin on the floor and
it floored roe. It split an awful bole, in
my cassimeres, right under my dress-coat
tail. It was too late to back out; so
clasping my hind over jt we marched in
and were spiced, and taking a seat I
wacthed the kissing the bride operation.
My groomsman was tight, and he kissed

John Nichols writes from J.lcSftiHa,
Crawford county, Pa, ; that eat ef bis
neighbors has inventented a msth-lf sp,
which is effectual. It is simply a box.
with a moveable top, and frames which
hold pieces cf comb, convenient to remore
for examination and destructioa ef the
moth, which enters through holes, and
deposits its eggs in the comb. This box
is placed by the side ef the hire, and
furnishes a perfrct hiding-place for the
moths, where the bees do not raciest
them, and where they can be destroyed.
The . theory is that the mo'h will cct at
tempt to emer the bite while it caa ti
a much better place in the box. Y. Y.
It is also said there aire hires with en
trances so guarded witb little tia doefs
that thft fees can, and he taoths caotsot

Even in these late ages the horse-shoe
is not unfrequently seen nailed over the
door of the cabin or cottage, to "charm"
away misfortune, or to "keep off" dis

have carried a buckeye in their "unmen

'klep' off" some particular malady.
There are many young gentlemen and
ladies whe have half a dozea ''charms

Hearing about ia one's heart the sweet
memories of a mother's care, and affect-
ton, and fidelity, often has a resistless
power, for many a year after that dear
mother has found her resting-place in
heaven, to restrain the wayward and the
unsettled from rushing- into the ways of
wicked and abandoned men. John Ran
dolph, of Roanoke, used to repeat in his
Inter years, and always with qnivenng
lips, that while he was quite a young
man, in Paris, he wa repeatedly oa the
point of plunging recklessly into the
French infidelity which was so prevalent
during the terrible "Revolution" of the
time; tut was as often restrained by the
remembrance of that far-dt3tant time,
when yet in his infancy, his mother used
to have him bend bis knees before her,
and, with his little hands in hers, thought
him ia sweet but tremulous tones, to say
nightly, "Our Father who art," etc.
Tens of 'housond are there ia this wide
land who, by the "charms" cf the tem
perance pledge, have gone out iato the
world, singly and alone, to battle with its
snares, and temptations, and sm ; they
have been surrounded at every step by
the great temper, with the allurements
of passion and pride ; of settetrtl gratifi
cation and of corrupting association;
but keeping their eye steadily fixed on
the beautiful "pleage," to "touch not,
taste not" the accursed thing, they have
bravely come off conquerors, and to day
stand in their might the pillars of soei.
ety. Young gentlemen, and young la
dies, too, make it yonr ambition to bear
about you "alway" the "charm" of the
"pledge!' of reverence for the Sabbath

Here the wife buried her face in her

An ex-slave applied the other day to a

Among all the improvements in mod
ern mechanism, says the Chicago Trib
une, the art of horseshoeing nas met with
little advancement. The old fashioned
way of nailing the shoe to the hoof, with
all its attendant evils, remainS in rogue.
We have just been shown a horseshoe
invented by Thomas Skelton, of Rock-
fofd, I'll., which will be rery likely to
work a complete revolution in the prac
tice of horseshoeing. The shoe consists
of a tinged plate, with four or five little
flanges or projections extending up .ca
the outside of the horse's hoof, clasping
it like so many little finger, racking a
neat and perfectly effective attachment
to the hoof.- On the bottom of tais hing
- ed plate the sole of the shoe) so to speak,
or the part that comes in c ontact whh
the ground, is fastened by strong set
crewr, whereby the flanged plate is held
firmly to the foot, the' whole making a
handsome, easy and durable shoe, which
can be easily pat on aad taken off, and.
instead of endangering the hoof, after
the manner of tbe old fashioned shoe, is
an absolute preserver of tbs hoof, adapt
ed to tnose that are split, tender or thin,
as well as all others.
The shoe is made of malleable iron,
and can be manfacte'red at a cost of fif
teen cents per pound, and being so econ
omical, safe and laborsaviDg,, we do not
see what will pretent its speedily coming
into general use.
inary surgeon, on examining the shoe,
gave it bis hearty indorsement, and says:
'I consider' ii one of the most valuable
atd erffcfct pieces of meehansim of the.
kind ever invented;

At last' Jack cams to the conclusion to buy

Ahashueras, who had fastened to Jack's
