Our a.ssociate returned home yester
day from the hyperborean regions, and
notwithstanding he has been bick most
of the time duriog his absence he has
had fiome fun. lie tells us the following
incident on what Greeley knows ahout
farming :
At McGregor, Iowa, Greeley was to
lecture upon his favorite subject. Jut
b fire g jing on the tand, a rather well
to do farmer, who, by the way, is a Jus
tice of the peace and a class leader in
the Methodist church in his neighbor
hood, accjtcd him as follows :
Farmer "Mr. Greeley, I understand
you know all about, fanning."
Greeley-" Fes, Pir, I do."
Farmer "I uppOFe you know when
to t'lant, reap, j-ow, etc."
Greeley "Yes fir, I know when to
i)low, to mow, to reap, to sow ; in ehort,
I think I understand all the various du
ties and interests of the f'wmer. I will
fcpeak at two o'clock, which is now al
most that time, and will tell yon all I
know about farming, if you will only
give me your attention, and I will alo
esteem it a compliment to have you for
one of my listeners."
Farmer 1 should be glad to hear you,
but as I live twenty miles distant, I can
not have that pleasure. I would like to
ask you a question for the benefit of my
self and neighbors."
Greeley "Certainly."
Farmer "Mr. Greeley, what is the
be?t time of year to cut Canada thistles
and elders?" - J ; -
Greeley (touching the farmer on the
shoulder) "My friend, these Canada
thistles are a very noxious weed, and in
order to prevent their spread should be
cut just before they are ripe, and Elders
should be cat just befote camp meeting."
It is unnecessary to say the conversa
tion ended. Ex.
Kxufing the manuscripts which were
probably burned at the recent confla
gration of the arch-episcopal palace at
Bourges in France, the most remarka
ble and valuable was the order ibr the
execution of Jesus Christ, which was
the personal property of the family De
lo Tour'd Auvcrgne. The wording of
tho order was as follows: Jeeus of
Nazareth, of the Jewish tribe of Jnda,
convicted of imposture and rebellion
against the divine authority of Tiberius
Augustus, Emperor of the Romans,
have for this sacrilege been condemned
to die on the cross by sentence of the
judge, Pontius Pilot, on the prosecution
of our lord, Herod, lieutenant of the
emperor in Judea, sh:ill be taken, to
morrow morning, the 21 day of the ides
of M irth, to the usual place of punish
ment, unler the escort of a company of
the l'nctorian guard- The so-called
King of the Jews shall be taken out by
the Struncan gate. All the public offi
cers and the subjects of the emperor are
directed to lend their aid to the execu
tion of this sentence.
Signed. Catel

March, year of Rome, 7S8.
At a time when every one is ardently
longing to see one or two railroad presi
dents, a couple of "superintendents,"
and at least a board of directors, in
State prison, for the shocking negligence
allowed under their management, it
seems trivial to suggest a modest con
venience to travelers, which is, never
theless, much needed. We refer to some
means of announcing intelligibly the sta
tions on the road instead of having
their names shouted hoarsely and al
most inarticulately in at the car door
after the brakes are on. A perfectly
simple and cheap contrivance would be a
strip of linen, wiih the names of the
stations clearly printed on it, pass.sing
over a couulo of rollers in such away
that a brakeman could in a second ex
pose the name of the station next to be
stopped at. lhi, with conductors
cheeks bearing the names of the sta
tions and their distance from each other,
or placards with the same information,
would bear very greatly to the conveni
ence and comfort of traveling. It would
prevent the confusion and haste at sta
tions, which have not untrcquently re
suited in injury to person, and even in
loss ot lite. , .
The condemnation by an eTangelical
newspaper, of the beautiful hymn
"Nearer my God to Thee," because
there is no recognition 01 Christ in U. is
parallelled by the condemnation that
Anthony Antaud, an eminent theologian
of his ige. cast against an excellent and
comprehensive prayer" that Ieibnitz re
peated in Ins presence. lliat, said
the evangelical divine, "is good for noth
ing there is no mention ot our liord
Jesus Christ in it " "For the moment,"
says Leibnitz, ''I was a little startled by
so s-evcre and unexpected criticism. Rut
I replied, 'For this reason must also our
Lord s prayer and all the petitions which
occur in the Acts and Epistles of the
Apostle", be good for nothing: for in
these prayers no mention U made of
Christ or of the Trinity.' Thereupon,"
continues Loibnitz, "uiy good fellow was
thrown into confusion, and we went out
for a moment to take breath. The
spiritual sympathies of some over ortho
dox persons are nioro ready to rcspoi.d
to the name, than they are to the spirit
of Christ.
American Trunks and Baggage smash
ers. A writer in McMillan ' for Aug:,
thus dixcources on certain incideots of
American travel:
Just then the hotel omnibus drove
up, laden with tourists and those vast,
iron bound, round topped receptacles
for wardrobes, which accompany Ameri
can ladies on their wanderings. I have
remarked that the old English passion
for solidity breaks out in the direction of
trunks among their decendants in the
New World more than in any other.
Iudeed, I scarcely know where else to
look for it. Yankee notions in genaral
may be make-shifts for the day, but
Yankee trunks are built for posterity.
Among so practical a folk the reason is
not far to seek. In no country in
Christendom, of indeed in those parts of
heathendom with which I am familiar,
is all manner of unoffending luggage
used so atrociously as in America. A
perfect system of dispatch and delivery
is supplemented by a brutality of treat
ment in transit which would try the,
constitution of the toughest bull's hide
bound with brass (like Roderick Dhu's
ehicld). I speak feelingly on the subject
A white man running for office in
South Carolina, sought to propitiate a
colored constituent with whiskey.
"Well, ye3 sah," said the constituent,
"I don't care if I duz. 'Sides, in dese
times a white candidate is just as good
as a colored voter, 'specially when the
colored voter is dry.

Women dwell with patience upon the
trifles that make up the lives of their
children ; and it is on the direction of
these seeming trifles that their future
greatness will depend. "A : kiss from
my mother," said Renjamin West,
"made me a painter." When yet a
child, he had drawn a rude sketch of an
infant relation sleeping in a cradle. His
mother chanced to sec his childish pro
duction, and was so well pleased with it
that she took the young artist in her
arms and rapturously kissed him. That
mark of maternal delight fixed hii fate
for life.

One of the drollest figures that has
appeared on the Ramsgate sands this
year is a preacher. He brings down to
the beach on his shoulders a small and
hoarse harmonium. He is followed by a
small procession ot sharp-featured spin
sters and seedy men in dingy black, and
there besides the roar of the sea they
lift up their cracked voices in a nal
psalui-tune. The preacher accompanies
them on his harmonium. The seriuon-
izeris keenly alive to the importance of
ha pence. Once when he had begun a
sermon of unusual warmth, and had
got as far as "willcth not the death of
any, but rather that all," he extended
his arms in a gesture, but it was just in
time to catch a penny tossed to him
from the crowd, whereupon the text
ended in "thank you, sir," and the ani
mated gesture terminated in the breech
es pocket. On another occasion some
wag was cruel enough to toss toward
the preacher a bright sixpence when he
was in tho ardor of prayer. The eyes
that seemed closed peeped a little and
were fixed on the sixpence. The coin
was in perilous proximity to the paws
of some urchins on the sand. The poor
fellow seeing the sixpence suddenly
broke lis prayer, and with a startling
"through Jesus Christ our Lord," had
his graft) Mtnultaneously with his
"Amen.' This produced some laugh

Mr. Grcelev. in his lecture on farming,
lays it down as an axiom that the higher
the breed of hog, the raore curls there
are in the tail ; and in consequence there
has been a great demand tor the curling
tonirs in all the rural hardware stores.
This useful implement will soon exter
minate the lower order of hogs through
out the length and breadth of the land.
Mr. Greeley thinks the end may be ac
complished by doing the tail up in paper
over night ; but experience has taught
him to prefer the tongs.

Seeing that a great many children in
the city are suffering from this com

nation of the cause of the disease, by
Dr. Lettevich, the American pathologist,
who says that he "has recently made a
series of experiments with a form of
fungoid growth which he believes to be
the cause of the .very troublesome dis
ea.e, whooping "cough. The spores
found in the expectorated mucus caus
ing the irritation and coughing, were al
lowed to vegetate into large masses, and
small portions were then introduced into
young rabbits by an opening in the
windpipe. The wound thus made soon
healed, but the animal became affected
with a violent congh. Several animals
thus diseased were killed, and the air
passages in each were found to contain
very large quantities of similar fungus."
