The other day when we visited the
High School, Miss Johnson had written
on the black-board "Natural Objects,"
and was explaining this subject, when
she asked a little girl to name some
natural objects. "Houses," answered
the pupil. The teacher asked her how
many houses around here she thought
were natural, t. e.. grew here. This
was a poser for the child; but if we
could only have Whispered her to go
out on the prairie to some dug-outs we
have seen, they would pretty nearly
fill the bill. If they did not grow
there, they are now grown over there.

M. E. SUNDAY SCHOOL EXHIBITION.
The exhibition at the M. E. Church,
on Friday evening, is very pleasantly
spoken of by those attending. The
Tableaux of the "Golden Stairs," and
the piece by Lena Brown, only four
years old, entitled "Hang Up the
Baby's Stocking," were spoken of as
very fine. The house was crowded.
The net proceeds were something over
fifty dollars. These entertainments are

Did you" eTtr see two women and a
dyg kill a fat ? If you never have, j ou
should Imve been up at omr house the
other night. We" haVe' been pestered
with rats abominably, and so set a com
mon wire trap, with small falling door,
in which a number have been caught.
We then turned them loose in the
kitchen to see the dog kill them. Last
Friday night, ye editor having an im
mense cold, retired very early. About
bine o'clock we heard a rat squeal in
the trap down stairs. Pretty soon the
women heard it, and the dog began to
"Let's catch it," says one woman.
"Well, let's, says the other. "Who'll
let it out," suggested one. "Ill bring
it up staii's," Says the schoolmam's
voice, "if youH hold the dog and let it
out of the trap." "All right," says
Mrs. Mac, as brave as a sheep, "I can
let a rat out, I guess." Down went the
schoolma'am while Mrs. M. tried to
hold the dog with one hand and a can
dle in the other, "Wher'd you take
hold," says S?
Mrs. M. "Get the handle of the
S.M. "Won't it bite?"
Dog. Yel p y el p y el p !
Mrs. M. "What, the handle?"
S. M. "No, the rat."
Dog. Yelp yelp yelp !
Mrs. M. "Bring it along, who's
afraid of a rat? Chorus, by the dorg.
The S. M. finally got the trap by the
handle and started up stairs. Just
then the dog gave a double inside and
out twist, slipped the collar and made
a drive down cellar between S. M's
feet. The onset landed S. M. in the
apple box at the foot of the stairs,
while both women screamed "Oh, the
rat, the nasty rat! just as loud as they
could. Once more- S. M. gathered the
trap, and they got to the kitchen.
"Now," says Mrs. Mac, "you hold the
dog and IU open the trap, and then
we'll both run into the other room
while the dog kills it.
"Yes, a41 right," from S. M.
The next instant we heard the dog
make a spring. There was an unearth
ly clatter of dishes, then howls, yells,
yaups, screams, barks, and frantic ap
peals for mercy, with loud shouts for
Mac. Pulling on our bifurcated gar
ments, we started for the battle field.
On opening the dining-room door the
following scene presented itself: Tip
end of the dog's tail, violently excited,
sticks oat from under the ice chest
where he is frantically trying to reach
the rat. Schoolmam crouched down
on the flat top of the cook
stove all Iter clothes tucked in
round Iter feet--and the jaw bone,
of A piece of roast beef left from
dinner in one hand, and the tin cover
of an iron pot held over her face with
the other, screaming rat, nasty rat, as
hard as she can. Mrs. M. is up on the
table, a broken lamp chimney in one
hand and the mustard cruet in the
other, hollering rat, nasty rat it run
up my clothes; just then the dog
chased the rat from under the ice chest
and both women gave a scream that
scared the rat so he turned grey .it
once, and gave up the ghost. The dog
tried in vain to shake some life into
him, but failed 'that last scream did
the business for Mr. Rat. '
THE TRUTH OF THE RAT STORY.
To show how an editor can make a
very big story out of a little one, we
tell our readers the rat story as it is,
not as he tells it,
The editor was calmly reposing in
his downy couch, dreamily thinking of
what he should fill the local columns
of the Herald with, when a squeak
ing in the cellar testified that ft rat
was in the tr-ip. We, the undersigned,
proceeded to the spot and carried the
trap to the dining room carefully clos
ing the doors that the dog might the
more readily catch it. In endeavoring
to open the door in the bottom of the
trap the rat escaped unexpectedly,
running over our feet, -at which as was
very natural, we sprang to one side.
Our rat then took refuge under the
ice chest and we took the broom stick
to dislodge him. and in a few moments,
occupied by the squeaking of the rat
and the barking and antics of the dog
the rat was killed. Could anything
have been more quietly done?
Now when the editor kills a rat he
and the Devil (of the printing office)
and the dog do a vast quantity of jump
ing around and make the air resound
with their cries.- So to render the
story sensational enough he just at
tributed their actions to us; very
cleverly putting two stories together,
you see, and the thing was done.
That he came to our assistance at all,
that We occupied any such positions
as he described, or that any such
screaming was done is a base fabrica
tion of his brain, and a slander upon
our fair fame as rat killers.
We the undersigned testify that this
account is true in all the details:
The Editor's AVife.
The School Ma'am.
The dog. .
P, S. When the editor writes up
another rat story, and reads it to a
sympathizing friend, let him see that
the trap door is closed.
You bet, and we hereby close this
one, by asserting that our rat story is
the true one, and that we could easily
stop this little joke here in the 'proof,
buf .rs the women have made a pretty
good thing of it, we shall leave their
Trap open. Ed.

The Aldine., while: Issued with all the regular
ity, ha none of the: temporary or timely inter
est characteristic of ordinary periodicals, it is
an elegant miscellany of pure, light, and grace
ful literature : and a Collection ol pictures, the
rarest specimens of artistic skill, in black and
white. Although each succeeding number af
fords a fresh pleasure to its friends, the real
value and beauty of the Aldine will he most ap
preciated after ith;us been bound upat tlie close
of the year. While other publications may
claim superior cheapness as compared with ri
vals of a similar class, the Aldine is a unique
and original conception alone and tinapproach
ed absolutely without competition in price or
character. Tlie possessor of a complete volume
cannot duplicate the quantity of fine paper and
engravings in any other shape or number of
volumes for ten times its cost ; and then, there"
are the chromos besides !
Art Department, 1873.
The illustrations of the Aldine have won a
world-wide reputation, aud in the art centres
of Europe it is an ndnitted fact that its wood
cuts are exumbk's of the highest perfection ev
eraUtuhed. The common prejudice in favor of
"steel plates."' is rapidly yielding to a more ed
ucated and discriminating taste which recog :
ni.es the advantages of superior artistic quality
with greater facility of production. The wood
cuts of the Aldine possess all the delicacy and
elaborate finish of the m.st costlv steel plate,
w.hile they afford a better rendering of the ar-'
To fully realize the wonderful work which the
Aldine is doing for the cause of art culture in
America, it is only necessary to consider the
cost to the people of any otfter decent repre
sentations of the productions of great paint
ers. In addition to designs by the members of the
National Academy, and other noted American
artists, the Aldine will reproduce examples of
the best foreign masters, selected with a view
to the highest artistic success and greatest gen
eral interest. Thus the subscriber to the Al
dine will, -at a trilling co.st, enjoy in his own
home the pleasure and refining' influences of
'1 he quarterly tinted plates for 1374 will be by
Thos. Moran and J. 1. Woodward.
The Christmas issue for 1874 will contain spe
cial designs appropriate to the season, by bur
best artists, and will surpass in attractions any
of its predecessors.
Premiums for 1874.
Even- subscriber to the Aldine for the year
1874 will receive a pair of chromos. The origi
nal pictures were painted in oil for the publish
ers of the Aldine. by Thos. Moran. whose great
Colorado picture was purchased by Congress for
ten thousand dollars. The subjects were chos
en to represent "The East" and "The West."
One is a view in the White Mountains, New
Hampshire ; the other gives The Cliffs of Green
Iiiver, Wyoming Territory. Tlie difference in
the nature of the scenes then selves is a;pleas
ing contrast, and affords a good display of the
artist's scope and coloring. The chromos are
each worked from thirty distinct plates, and are
in size OL'xlG) and apjiearaiice exact fac-similes
of the originals. The presentath n of a worthy
example of America's greatest landscape p; i. it
er to the subscribers .of the Aldine was a bold
but peculiarly happy idea, and its successful re
alization is attested bv the following testimo
nial, over the signature of Mr. Moran himself.
Newark, N J., Sept. 20, 1873.
Messrs JamE.s Sittom & Co.-
(Jcntli men: I am delighted with the proofs
in color of your chromos. They arc wonderful

These chromos are" la every sense American.
They are by an origiii;tl American process, with
material of Ameru'au manufacture, from -designs
of American scenery by an American
painter, and presented to subscribers to the first
snceessful Ainericali Art Journal. If no belter
because of all this, thev will certainly possess
an Interest no foreign production can inspire,
and neither are tlu'T any the worse if Jy reason
of peculiar facilities of production th'ey cost
the publishers only a trifle, while equal in every
respect to other chromos tbat are sold sintrly
for double the subscription price of the Aldine.
Persons of taste will prize tncsP pictures for

for a figure sublect, the publishers will send
