begin to believe it. Somewhat puzzled,
and de.-irous to know for my per.-on-il
satisfaction whether there could possibly
be any truth in the story which, if true,
was of concern to the Journalism of
the nation, I wrote over to the veteran,

characteristic ihat I atn lempied to

1IIC leiUIST SOItTOF llELI-U-IO.V.
Some one, whose head is unusually
"leel," has written out his ideas of
religion as follows. Il will do to read
ami think about :
We want a religion that goes into
the family, and keeps the husband from
being spiteful when the ciuner is late;
keeps the wife from being fretful when
the husband tracks the newly washed
floor with his muddy boots, and makes
he husband mindful of the scraper and
door mat; amuses the children as well
as instructs them; wius as well as gov
erns them; projects the honey-moon
into the harvest-moon, and makes the
happy hours like the Eastern fig tree,
bearing in its bosom at once the beauty
of the tender blossom and the glory of
the lipeiu'd fruit. We want a relig
ijn that ber.rs not only on the sinfulness
of sin, but on the rascality of lying and
stealing; a religion that banishes a'l
small mea-ures from the counters,
small basket from the stalls, pebbles
from the cotton bags, clay from the pa
per, sand from sugar, chickory from
coll'ee; beet root from "vinegar, alum
from bread, lard from butter, strychnine
from wine, and water from the nr.lk
The religion that is to advance the
world will not put all the big straw
berries and peaches at the top; and all
the bad ones at the bottu n. It will uol
offer more b.ikel-of foreign wines
than the vineyards ever produced bot
tles. The religion that is to sanctify the
world pays its debts. Ii does uol con
sider forty cents returned for one hun
drd given, according lo go -pel , though
it is according to law. It looks on a
man who h is faded in trade, and who
continues to live in luxury, as a iLief.
It looks on a man ho promises to pay
fifty dollars mi demand, with interest,
a?jd who neglects to pay it on demand,
wrh or without interest, as a liar.

A correspond -nt, who saw the cruel-
hearted man, describes him pale as

ficient teeth ajar, and his eyes full of

PEEDt.G THE SICK..
Sad iiiis iiUes are made by hundreds
of well-meaning folks in thtir method
i-f admlnisterii g nourishment lo inva
lids It is th.t custom to keep the deli
cacies intended to tempt their appeiiies
r.ous'.amly within their reach. The
result is. thai instead i f feeling any
desire for the jellies, broths, etc., thus
obtruded upon their notice, ihe sight of
them creates loathing and disgust.
Sick people should never be haunted
with food in this way. Even persons
iu health would lose their relish fur
choice oishes if condemned to live iu a
larder, s-t r rounded night and day with
a. 1 ihe dainties of the season- If you
have anything rare and delicious for
your patient, surprise him with it. A
pleasant surprise is a good tonic, and
you may .excite his palate by springing
a refreshing rarity upon hun unexpec
tedly. Never hand a sick man a pile
of eatables, telling him that' you expect
him to devour tb whole of it. Feed
b in on the infinitesimal plan, with
fairy morsels; aud as soon as he has ta
ken what he requires, remove the re
mainder. In visiting sick rooms, how
often one finds bowls of arrrow-rooi
and sage, dabs of jelly, cups of beef
lea, fragments of dry toai, slices of or
anges and the like mixed in among
black draughts, boxes of Dills, plasters,
leeches and abominations of the "heal

An Iowa correspondent writes : "It
was at the first term of old Judge Mc
F 's Court, held in B
county, that the following good 'un was
really perpetrated :
''A new sheriff had just been elec

everything done in order, called the
newly elected official into his room to
instruct him as lo his duties, and find
ing said official decidedly verdant as to
the proper manner of opening Court,
wrote out the whole proclamation, and
gave him all the necessary instructions
thereto. Now it so happened that
F , of P couDty, a fun lov
ing attorney, was silting by atthetinie,
and seeing some chance for fun ahead,
prepared another proclamation, aud by
a little legerdemain succeeded in sub
stituting it in the sheriff's hat for the
one the Judge had given him. Eleven
o'clock came, and so did the order from
Judge McF . "Sheriff, open
Court.' Drawing his iiistruc ions de
liberately from his hat, he commenced
iu a stentorian voice: Hear ye ! the
Honorable District Court of the County
of B is wound up, and all ready
to griud. Allhaviug grists may pitch
in, and their giists shall be ground !"
The laugh that came ia can only bs ap

made a planting of sweet corn, for tba
