Bessie's papa and mamma were
spending a year in Europe, and Bessie
was staying with her grandparents in
the country. She had been in the
country every summer of her life, but
never had seen the great bare hills cov
ered with snow, nor walked in the pine
woods on a smooth, icy cru?t with
snow-birds twittering in the lonely still
ness, and the sunbeams creeping in to
glitter on the icicles that hung like
necklaces on the bushes before. She
had never been up before daylight in
the morning to go by the light of a
lantern, which somehow seemed like a
glimmer from fairyland, to the barn,
with Joe to feed the sleepy cows and
ininnticnt old Dobbin. The light of the
lantern always started theens oft their

never had been tucked away
in a great bung with all the chil
dren in the nei"-litorhood on a snowv
tafcen long, delightful rides into the
woods on Joe's ox-sled, nor coasted
down long, steep hills, nor popped corn
over the coals in the" fire-place, nor
made the kitten play wito the shadows
of the fire-light, nor had she eaten
roasted apples and hickory and butcr-
nuls while Abby,. the hired girl, told
fairy stories of, an evening. J3ut now
she was enjoying all these delights, and
wondered whypeople d dn't go into the
country to spend the winter instead of

up from it, ana grandma got drowsy
over her knitting, and Abby and Joe,
who were said to be courting, though
Bessie didn't know what that meant.
would go out early to spend the evening
with Abby's mother, or sit by the kitch
en fire and talk with each other without
paying any attention to her. Abby
wasn't always wiling to tell "Cinder
ella,' or "Jack, the Giant-Killer,"- by
any means. Even the- kitten, who was
3 fat, funny little thing, would some
times refuse to play on these evenings,
but would curl herself "into a little
round ball on the hearth-rug, and
try to go to sleep, and Carlo,
the great Newfoundland dog,
would good-naturedly go through
with all his tricks once or twice,
and then subside into a meditative
mood, from which it was impossible to
arouse nun. Carlo was getting old and
enjoyed meditation more than frolics.
So all that Bessie could do would be to
sit and wish that it was eight o'clock,
which hour was her bed time.
But m her aunt's house, which was
only a little ways around the corner at
the foct of the hill, things were delight
fully different. There were six children
in the family, and such romps as they
indulged in before bed-time! Abby
had taken her there two or three times
in the evening, and sometimes she went
by herself in the afternoon and stopped
to tea. and cither Joe. or Abbv would

It was awfully cold out of doors, to be
sure, but Bessie ran very fast and
did nol mind iit.miich? Sometimes the
wind almost took her breath away,
but what was that when one had such
delights before her? -Then,-when she
got uqder the hill .out, of sight of the
lightaon grandpa's house, and out of
sight of an-house, she commenced to
feel a little frightened and to wish that
she was afc at home. If she had only
taken old Carlo with her, she would not
have felt so lonely. But still she trotted
bravely on and finally reached the little
lane which led to Aunt Mary's house
and past it through a stretch" of woods
into another road. The lane was shel
tered by great trees, so that it was not
so cold, and Bessie's spirits rose again.
Her hand was upon the latch of the
garden-gate, when, on looking up, she
beheld a sight which fairly curdled her
blood with horror. It was, in reality.
Tommy's Jack o' Lantern which he had
just finished and stuck upon'the gate-

servant-girl when she came in from
niilkinjr. But to Bessie, who had not
the most distant idea what it wa, it
seemed like the head of some frightful,
grinning monster, whose mouth was al
ready open to swallow.naughty children.
She uttered 'one loud, agonizing scream,
dropped the latch, anil ran on toward
the woods as fast as her feet would
xarry ner. Jot ior tne world
would she have gone thronjrh that
gate which was guarded by the horrible
thing. But the people in the house did
not hear her scream,, for the wind was
doing the same thing, and'shc went on.
and on, never heeding where she went,
caring nothing for the darkness of the
wood?, conscious of nothing but the
dreadful fear that the monster was fol
lowing her. She dared not look behind
her; she had not strength even to cry.
In some places the snow was deep, and
the effort .hc made in running through
it was ven cxhaustinjr for a little thing
like Bessie. It was warmer in the
woods than out in the bleak highway,
but sll it was bitterh- cold; and it was
so dark in some places that she ran into
the trees ,-
"Oh, what'shonld saewd! i Wouldn't
she get out o'f "the wood;; soon and'ffnd,.
some bouse with jroml, kind people m;
it, who would.take her home to grand
ma?" she said to herself.
But it was a.whole mile through thoj
woods, and that is a good way for a
little girl to run on a wild winter's
night; and just before she reached the
end of it, she sank down quite ex
hausted in the snow. She was horribly
cold at first, but this sensation soon
passed away, a sense of drowsiness
stole over her, and she was soon quite

An Amateur Lawyer.
A Yankee, named Matnr, who had
bqen for twelve years in af insurance
office, was in Cincinnati, ont of Avork,
and living on ten cents a day. He had
a room with a certain Mrs. Sterne, .and
as his bill there was assuming respectable
proportions, and he had no immediate
prospects of being able to liquidate, he
decided to "skip by the light of the
moon." That ver3 day his landlady
inquired: "Aren't you a lawyer, Mr.
Mather?' Quick as thought he rc
responded: "Yes." "Well, said Mrs.
Sterne, "I want to get your advice. MjT
husband has left me and wants to get
hold of the policy of insurance on his
life, which I have. Can he do so and
sell it back to the company?" Mr.
Mather ekarninQd; thf policy, and feeling
doubtful on one'point, told her he would
advise her the following morning He
repaired at once to the laW office of a
friend ,rand in n off-hind, way gained
the.informatioh he desired, andthaiol
lowing day gave his finhi decision to
Mrs. Sterne. He had then accumulated
a few dollars nhd asked hislandlady the
amount of his bill. - "Why, you are not
going are you? I hoped you would
board out your bill' against mo far your

you'll give me eight dollars I'll call our
accounts square, thougb-I-wou'.d charge

handed over the money with many ex
pressions of appreciation, and the guest
departed not penniless and owing for
his lodgings, but free of debt, and hav

best part of the story is that the money
thus obtained gave him. a start, from
which he quickly rose to a position of

A Battle, with Whales.
About a week ago Mr. Peter Warner,
the well-known contractor, and a
veteran fisherman, started out on a fish
ing excursion in a small boat. They"
carried with them -a- Winchester rifle
and a shot-gun, in order possibly to bag
some of the game that abounds in the
laguna, which extends some three miles
inland from the shore. They had"
rowed out but a few miles, when two-
whales, of, tho hottle-nose species, were"
Mr. Warner immediately grasped his
riile, fired, and apparently wounded
one of them. Infur.ated, the monsters
lashed the water into-foam, and made
desperate eflbrts.to reach them. jAfter

one of them was reached, and only one

By this" term we commonly under
stand the amount of bodily motion
necessary to maintain the "proper circu

degree of activity which the natural
condition of the animal body requires.
Exercise is the contrary of repose, and
without either of these, the animal ma
chine would- soon be destroyed. It
greatly assists the insensible transpira
tion, the most abundant of all thc secre
tions, and keeps off a number of dis
eases depending upon the superabun
dance orthelluids, their impurity or
stagnation, enlargements or obstruc
tions of the viscera. Far from dimin
ishing the animal forces, it reanimates
mem; a languishing appetite is re

very often unfruitful; while a long-con-iinued
repose frequently leads to
obesity, which again-induces impotence
and often 'death. These are not the
'only consequences of a continued want
of -exercise. Their limbs are deprived,
of that play or spring necessary in- pre
serving all the parts ofthe body in their
state of health, , -
Exercise should, however, be regular
and moderate. Very violent labor may
affect all the organs,' and render the.
stature diminutive. Hence all excess in
this respect should bo avoided if possi
