TnE CARMI CHUMS.
The Canni Chums was the name they
Tvvnt by all along the river. Most other
roustabouts had each a name of his own ;
so had the Carmi Chums, for that mat
ter, but the men themselves were never
mentioned individually always collect
ively. No steamboat Captain who
wanted only a single man ever attempted
to hire half of the Canni Chums at a
time as easy would it have been to
have hired half of the Siamese Twins.
No Btcamboat.mate who knew them ever
attempted to "tell off" the Chums into
different watches, and anymate who,
not knowing them, committed this blun
der, and adhered to it after explanation
was made, was sure to be two men short
immediitely after leaving the steamer's
next landing. There seemed no possible
way of separating them ; they never lull
out with each other in the natural courec
of events; they never fought when
drunk, as other friendly roustabouts
sometimes did, for the Canni Chums
never got drank; there sever sprang up
any coolness between them because of
love for the same lady, for they did not
seem to care at all for female society,
unless they happened to meet some old
lady whom one might love as a mother
rather than as a sweetheart. Even pro
fessional busybodies, from who3c pres
ence roustabouts are not freer than
church members, were unable to pro
voke the Curmi Chumb even to suspicion,
and those of them who attempted it too
lersisteutly were likely to have a difli
eulty with the slighter ot the Chums.
This man, who was called Black, because
ofathe color of his hair, was apparently
forty years of age, of .very ordinary ap
peerance, except when an occasional
furtive, frightened look came into his
(.ire ami attracted attention. His com
panion called lied, because his hair was
of the hue of carrots, and because it
was occasionally necessary to distinguish
him from Ins friend, seemed of about
tlte same age and degree of ordinariness
as Mack, but was rather stouter, more
cheery, and, to us the favorite rousta
bout simile, held his head closer to the
current. He seemed, when Black was
absent minded fas he generally was
while off duty), to be the leading spirit
of the couple, and to bo tenderly alive
to all of his partner's necils; but ob
serving roustabouts noticed that when
freight was being moved, or wood taken
on board, Black was always where he
could keep an eye on his chum, and
when he could demand instant repar-s
tion from any wretch who trod upon
Red's toes, or who with a shoulder load
of wood grazed Bed's head, or touched
Bed with box or barrel.
Next to neighborly wonder as to ihe
txistcucc of the friendship between the
Chums, roustabouts with whom the
couple sailed concerned themselves most
with the cause of the bond between
them. Their searches, after first causes
were no more successful, however, than
those of the naturalists who are endeav
oring to ascertion who laid the cosmic
egg. They gave out that they came
from Carmi, so, once or twice, when
Captains with whom the Chums were
engaged determined to seek a cargo up
the Wabash, upon which river Carmi
was located, inquisitive roustabouts be
came light hearted. But, alas, for the
vanity of human hopes! when the boat
leached Carmi the Chums could not be
found, nor could anv inhabitant of
Carmi identify them by the descriptions
which were given by inquiring friends.
At length they became known, in their
oulleciive capacity, as one of the insti
tutions of the liver. Captains knew
them as well as they knew Natchez or
cccded in this latter named operation,
he would, by insensible stages, draw
himself away, and ivc himself up to
enthusiastic admiration of his partner,

hsd floating palace of the Mississippi,"
M she was called by those newspapers
whose reporters had the freedom of the
Benr.ett's bar; and the same season saw
the Bennett staggering down the Mis
sissippi with so heavy a load of sacked
corn, that the gunwales amidships were
fairly under water. The river waa very
low, so the Bennett kept carefully in the
channel, but the channel of the great
muddy ditch which drains half the
Union is as fickle as disappointed lovers
declare women to be, and it has no
hnore respect for jrreat steamer loads
ot com than Goliah had for David. A
little Ohio Jliver boat, lKuud upwards,
Tiad reported the sudden disappcaiancc
t f a wood yard a Utile way above Mil
likcn's Jml, where the channel hugged
the shore, and with the wood yard there
had disappeared an enormous sycamore
tree, w'lich-had for years, served, as a
tying post for steamers. As live syca
mores are about tw' disinclined to float
as birs of lead arc, the Captain and
silot o: tue.iiennctt were somewhat
concerned- for the sake of the corn
to know th exact location of the tree..
Half a mile from the spot it became
evident, even to the passenger clustered
forward en the cabin deck, that the
cmained quite near its
fold home, for a
seen directly across the line of life chan
nel. Then arose the utiestioii as to how
much water was on top of the tree, and
whether any bar had time to accumu
late. The steamer was stopped, the en
gines were reversed and worked by
hand to keep the Bennett from drifting
" m down stream, a boat as lowered and

headed for the shore end of the ripple.
She seemed almost into the boiling mud
in front of her when the passenger on
the steamer heard the Mate in the boat
The motion of the oars changed in an
instant, but a little too late, for, a heavy
root of the fallea giant, juat covered by
the water, caught the little craft, aud
caused it to careen so violently that
one man was thrown into the water. As
she righted, another man went in.
"Confound it! growled the Captain,
who was leaning out of the pilot bouse
window. "I hope they can swim. Still,
'taint as bad as it would be if we had
any more cargo to take aboard."
"It's the Chums," remarked the pilot,
who had brought a glass to bear upon
"Thunder, exclaimed the Captain,
striking a bell. "Below there! Lower
away another" boat lively!" Then,
turning to the passengers, he exclaimed:
Nobdy on tie river M forgive me if
I lost the Chum3. 'Twould be as bad
as Barnum losing his giraffe."
The occupants of the first boat were
evidently of the Captain's own mind,
for they were eagerly peering over her
side, and into the water.
tiuddenly the pilot dropped his glass,
extemiorized a trumpet with both hands,
"Forrard iorrard! One of 'em's up!"
Then he put bin mouth to the speaking
tube, and screamed to the engineer:
"Let her drop down a little, Billy !"
The sounding party headed towards a
black speck, apparently a hundred
yards below them, and the great steam
er" drifted down stream. The speck
moved towanh shore, and the boat,
rapidly shortening distance, seemed to
scrape the banks with her port oars.
"Safe enough now, Ijjuoss," exclaimed
Judge Turner, of one of the southern
Illinois circuits. The Judge had been
interrupted in telling a story when the
accident occurred, and was in a burr' to
"As 1 was saying," .said he, "lie hardly

He was little and quiet, and had always
worked away steadily at his trade. I

ask the Governor to pardon him. The
laws have to be executed, you know,
but there's no law against mercy being
practiced afterwards. Well, the Sheriff
was bringing him from jail to hear the
verdict and the sentence, when a short
man, with red hair, knocked the Sheriff
down, and off galloped that precious
couple for the "Wabash. I saw the en
"The deuce!" interrupted the pilot,
again dropping his glass.
The Judge glared angrily; the passen
gers saw, across the shortened distance,
one of the Chums holding by a root to
the bank and trying to support the other,
whose shirt hung in rags, and who seemed
"Which one's hurt?" asked the Cap
tain. "Give me the glass."
But the pilot had left the house and
taken the glass with him.
The Judge continued :
"I saw the whole transaction through
the window. I vras so close that I saw
the Sheriff's assailant's very eyes'.-1 ' I'd

"Why, they're both hurt!" exclaimed
the Captain. "They've thrown a coat

they showed Gen. Zach Taylor's plant

brandy, or a genuine, old fashioned
plantation cigar," seemed destitute of
ordinary handles of which a steamboat
Captain could take hold. Lady pas
sengers took considerable notice of
them, and were more successful than
any one else at drawing them into con
versation. The linguistic accomplish
ments of the Chums were not numerous,
but it did one good to sec Black lose his
scared, furtive look when a lady ad
dressed him, and to sec the affectionate
deference with which he appealed to
Bed, until that worthy was drawn into
the conversation. When Black suc

wasted here. What's, the matter,' Mr.
Bell?" shouted the Captain, as the loat
approached the steamer.
"Both dead," replied the officer.
"Dead! Now, ladles and gentlemen,"
I exclaimed the Captain, turning towards
the passengers, who were crowding for
ward jist below him, "I want to know
if that ain't a streak of the meanest kind
of luck? Botl uieCuuihsgoSeT 'rtfiyi

must have been caught in in eddy and
tangled in the old tree's top clothes tora
almost off head cared in. Black must
have burst a blood vessel his face looked
like a copper pan when he reached shore
and be just groaned and dropped."
The Captain was sorry so sorry that
he seat a waiter for braady. But the
Captain was human, business was busi-ess,-the
rain was tailing-, 'and a big log
was across the boat's bow, so he shouted:
Hurry up and bury Vm, then. You
ought to let thr second boat's crew gone
on with that, and you have gone back to
your sounding?. They ms the Chum?,
to be cure, but how they're only dead
roustabouts. Below there! Pais out a
couple of shovels!"
"Perhaps some ladies would go down
with the boat, Captain and a preacher,
too, if there's one aboard," remarked the
mate, with an earnest but very mysteri
"Why, what in thunder does the fel

audibly. "Womeu and a preacher for

tremendous cl ap, and exclaimed :
"Murder will out! But who'd have

course some ladies '11 go and a preuch

Hold up, though we'll ail go. Take
your soundings, quick, and we'll drop

up. I wonder if there is n preacher
No one responded for a moment; then
the Judge spoke:
"Before I entered the law I was the
regularly settled pastor of a Presbyterian
church," Eaid he. "I'm decidedly rusty
now, but a little time will enable me to
prepare myself properly. Kxcusc me,
jadies and gentlemen."
The sounding boat pulled away, and
the Judge retired to his stateroom. The
ladies, with very pale laces, gathered in
a group and whispered earnestly with
each other; then ensued visits to each
other's staterooms, and the final regath-
ering of the ladies with two or three
bundles. The soundings were taken,
and as the steamer dropped down stream,
men were seen cutting a path down the
rather steep clay bank. Tiie Captain
put his hands to his mouth and shouted:
"Dig only one grave make it wide
enough lor two."
And nil the pacS2ngers nodded a.-.3iMit
Time had been short since the news
reached the steamer, but the Bennett's
carpenter, who was himself a married
man, had made n plain celhn by the time
the boat tied up, and another by the
time the grave was dug. The first was
put upon a long barrow, over which the
Captain had previously spread a table
cloth, and followed by the ladies, was
deposited beside the body ot Red. Half
an hour later the men placed Black in
the other coffin, removed both to the
side of the grave, and signaled the boat.
"Now, ladies and gentlomen," said
The Judge appeared, with a very sol
emn face, his coat buttoned tight to his
throat, and the party started. Col. May
of Missouri, who read Voltaire and
didn't believe in anything, maliciously
took the Judge's arm and remarked : '
"You didn't finish your story, Judge."
The Judge frowned reprovingly.
"But really," persisted the Colonel, "I
don't want curiosity to divert my mind
from the solemn services about to take
place. Do tell me if they ever caught

Says a writer in All the Year llvund:
About the year 1700, enc Lady Elphiu
stonc died the mother of thirty-bix
children, of whom twenty-soren were
living at one time. The late Bishop
Bathurst, of Norwich, was the twenty
sixth child of Mr. Bathurst, youngest
brother ot the first Lord Bathurst. But
tliis is only part of the story; for Mr.
Bathurst, who had twenty-two children
by his first wife, and was destined to
have fourteen by his .second, making a
good round three dozen altogether.
Rather distinguished in this way wero
the Bathursts; for two brothers and a
sister of his had during their respective
married lives, sixty-four children, which,
with his thirty-six, made just an even
hundred. Another married couple,
Thomas and Helen Urqubart, arc ranked
among those who have had thirty-six
children. The parents lived at Cromarty
castle, in the early part of tho sixteenth
century: their twenty-fivo sons ali grew
up to manhood, and many of them be
came distinguished, while the eleven
au gut era all lived to be married, and
many of them to be the mothers of large
families. The Urqubart blood, there
fore, must have been rather extensively
diffused ia Scotland by the end of the
century. An authenticated case of thirty
nine brothcas and sisters was afforded
by the Greenhill family ia the closing
years of the seventeenth century. 3Ir.

There is naturally considerable anxie
ty to learn the probable number of hogs
which will lie marketed in the West this
season, aad from several sources we hare
received iavitatioss to furnish such in
formation as we can cbtain on this sub
ject. Such information ot a definite and
reliibie character ia very meagre, and in
the nature of the case any opinions on
this matter, even from the various pro
ducing sections, are more a matter of
conjecture than of certainty, and the
most that can be done is to give the
general indications and the few facts
which according to natural laws conduce
to increase or reduce the production.
In the first place, it must be consid
ered that the area of the corn-growing
and consequently the hog-raising section
of the country is rapidly extending
westward, and that in the comparatively
new States west of the 3IiEsissippi river
the new land brought under cultivation
annually makes a material addition to
the capacity of the country. It is not
improbable that such States as Ohio,
Kentucky, and possibly Indiana, have
reached the maximum of their corn
raising and hog-p-oducing i uteres ts, not
because they havo not yet ample capaci
ty, but because much ot the land can be
more protitablv devoted to other pur
poses, such as sheep-raising, dairy farm
ing and vegetable gardening, while in
many sections ot Illinois, Iowa, Wiscon
sin, Missouri, Kansas aud Nebraska, corn
is the most profitable crop, not only be
came of the large yield obtained, but
localise it can 1 turned into pork and
marketed with less expense than any
The supply of hogs depends largely
upon the quantity ami quality of the
corn crop. That a larger area of coun
try was planted in corn this year than
usual is generally conceded. It has met
some vicissitudes, but taking the count ly
together, the yield is doubtless luily up
to the average, and the quality some
Now as to the basis for the production
of fat hogs. The reports of the Auditors
of State show that there were le.ss hogs
in most of the Western States which
were six months old or over on April 1,
187.r, than one jear preceding, but this
is not conclusive as to the ability of the
country to turn out fat hogs this winter,
for it is well known that spring pies
constitute a large part of the stock hogs
which are fattened during the autumc
and winter for packing. Tills is one of
the modern improvements in pork-raising,
and a very important one, localise
of its economical advantages.
It will be remembered that at the close
of the winter packing season last spring,
there was a prevalent impression that
there were few hogs in the country
which could be made available for sum
mer packing, but the result shows that
there waa no great falling off from last
summer, and this illustrates how a de
mand will be met with a corresponding
supply if the inducement in price is suf
ficient. Farmers have learned that it is
more profitable to fatten young bogs and
market them when ten to fifteen months
old than to keep them two years or more.
We think this is the true inwardness of
the condition shown by the Auditors'
reports. If we arc correct in this it fol
lows that there is no force in the argu
ment that there arc not enough begs in
the country to furnish the usual number
I for packing this season. There is a suf
ficient inducement in the present and
prospective price of hogs for farmers to
utilize all of their feed other than corn,
which has been unusually abundant this
autumn in bringing their Btock hogs
up to the point where they will fatten
rapidly on corn. The fact that many of
the bogs are young will doubtless lead
to late feeding if the weather proves
favorable; but we sec no more reason
to suppose that there will be a scarcity
of early hogs than there was last spring
to expect no fat hogs during the summer.
We think wc have somewhere met with
the observation that this is a great coun
try, and that tho hog is a prolific animal,
but which some people seem to disbe
lieve at this season of the year. Gincin'

frequent visitor at the house and gar
dens of Muretus, who, having heard that
be possessed a remarkable art or faculty
of memsry, though incredulous in re
gard to reports, took occasion to request
from him a specimen of his power. Ha
at once agreed; and, having adjourned
with a considerable party of distin
guished auditors into a saloon, Muretus
began tb dictate words, Latin, Greek,
barbarous, significant and nonsignifi

wearied himself, the young man who
wrote them down, and the audience who
were present; 4we were all,' he says,

would be more than nathiicd if he could
repeat the half of what he ha I taken
down, and at length hs ccaed. The
young man, with bis gaze fixed upon the
ground, stood silent for a brief season;
and then siys Muretu, 'Vidi facinus
miriflcissimum.' Having begun to speak,
he aWoliitely n-pented the whole words
in the same order in which they had
been delivered, without the slightest
hesitation; then, commencing from the
last, he repcate 1 them backward till he
came to the first. Then, aain, so that
