A tnrttj in a country town 'took groat
jiii-a.-iuie in' having' a licit! garden. He
itad nil kinds)- of Hee-uhles ami fruits
earlier than his neighbors, but, thieving
boys in tiio ncitjliboiJiuoJ uimoycij Lint,
damaged bis trees, 'trampled down bis
(lowers, :md " bgoked" bis cliuicu.t fruits.
IIo tried various ' ways' to' protect bis
grounds ;'1iit his watch doswero poison
ed, and sft-trap caught, nothing but' his
fatted fowls and favorite cat. ,.
Ono nfternnon however, jtist pt night
fall, he 'overheard a couplo of mischiev
ous hoj'i talking together, "when ono1 of
tliein aid : : ' w. . . . . .
, " What tlo you say, ,Joa? . Shall vye
come the ; prab game over the melons u
nielli ? Old 'Swipes will he sijuii-.g like
ten irieii heforo 'i o'clock." !j
Tho oihrr iitijected, as there was a high
wall to get over. . - i , . .
"Oh, pshaw! was. Uie reply; I know
a place where you can get over jut as
easy know it like a Look.' Come, Joe,
let s go.
The owner of the melon patch duln t
like the idea of be'nj an eaves ijropper;
but the conversation so immediately con
cerned his' melons which he had taken so
miich pains to raiso, tbat he kept quiet
and listen'd to ihe pbmsof tlieyiwigf scape
graces, so tpai hu might make K aome
what bothersome for them. ..
.Ned proposed to get over the wail on
the' so ith tide by the great pear tree, and
cut directly errors to the summer-houae,
just north of which were the melons.. . .
Joe was a clever fellow, wiio iovea goo
fruits exceedingly, nnd was as obstinate as
nu n.s. (jet once darted to do a thing,
and he would stick to it like mud-turtle
to a nrro's to.. .The odier didn't care o
nuicli for. the meloa as Ut the fan of get
luig tliein. , ,
Now hear tjie owner s etory.
I made a needful preparation for the
vi-it : put m brads pretty thick in the
bcantling along! the wall where they in
tended to. get over; uncovered a large
witter vat wiiidi had been filled for some
time, from' which, in dry weather, I was
accustomed to water iny garden; dug a
trewh a foot deep or so, and placed len-
ler board over t, which wer kliohtly
corned with dirt, and juV- beyond them
tome little cords, lastened tightly some
eight inches from the ground. 1 picked
all the melons I wished to preserve, leav-'
mg pumpkins and squnshfs, bout thsize
mid ll4)o of muloiis, m their placee,'
Tlie boy were (juito right in iupposing
it would be dark, but tliey .missed it a lit
tle in inferring that CM Swipes " ns
they tailed him, woitij be 1 irv ,bd. The
old man liked a little fun as well us they,
and when the. time came, from Lis hiding
place he listened :
" Yh!, Jee! dca't you hear some
thing ?" '
I think Unit it wn.1 very probable that
they did, fur hardly were, the word
tittered, tiit.ii ilu'te cuino a sound of foi'ii
ble tearing of fiiMinn.
(Jet oil' my coat tail !" whisprrcd Joe,
" there goes one (f the llnps ns sine as
guns! Why get oil, Ned." : . t
And Nod wns oil', nnd one. leg of his
breeches berides; arid then hn wnsnh-ing,
oh-hg; nnd telling jop thnt'he " believed
thole was nails iu that tide, of tli wall,
for Noiuethiiig had S'Ttitehed tiim tremeieU
eu!y and torn his bren lies nil topierev.
Jtirt Bympathized willi him, for he said
"hnlfihis coat was hanging up tlieie
They now Marled liainl-iii-liainl,for Ned
believed ho knew the way." They had
arrived a littbi beyond the tree.", 'when
something went awash ! Bwaiih ! into tiio
wutur-vat. , . ,
A Ntieeice ensued, ihen therxclauiation:
" Thunder ! that water smell., rather old !"
Ned wanted to go luune nt oner, but
Joe wns too much excited to listen for a
moment to such a proposition.' ' ,'
.'.'Never heard anything aloiU thatois
lei a before; the old fellow mu:t have
fixed it on purpose to;' drown' peoplo in.
('iirioim, thoujh, that wo should both' Tall
into it." ' ,v ', i.-.:. , '''..'
They piilwd on again for the melons,
Presently they were caught by the cords,
and headlong they went into a heap of
briers nnd thistles, nnd the like, whirh
had been placed there for their express
accommodation, . V , .
"Such a gettin' up stairs !" muttered
one. '; ;ti .' . ; 1 . ,-. i
' ." Nettles and tliistles ! how they prick I"
exclaimed the other.
They now determined to go' more ran
tiotisly. At length , they nrWved at the
pnlrh. - ' .. : - -
."How thick they arc, Joe? Como
here ! There's more than a dozen fat
ones here!" " '
j And down they sat in the midst nf them,
nnd seemed to conclude- tb.aj they wore
amply rewarded for all their mishaps.''
Here, Joe," Mud ;Ned; take this
musk-inelon ; isn't it a rouser ? Slash in
to it.", -. ' ; .; '.. .'!.';
',' It cuts tremendous , hard, Ned. ". Ned
it s a eatiasli :
' No it isn't, I trl! yo:t its tx new kfnd
Old Swipes sent to Rhode Island for the
seed last spring. ,. . .,,..'
" Well. tUen. all I ve cot to sav. is thai
the old fellow trot sucked, in--t hat's nil.",'.
i " I'm going to' goilgo into the water
melons; halloo! there goes a hall n dol
lar! I've broke my: knife. : If I 'didn't
know it was a water-mlon, J should say
it was a pumpkin. ' 1'utt i., I belivo it i.s
a ptimjikiii." "" . .',''"
hut the boysdid bendes, while the
owner went to the iablo and uninuzled
the dog, and led him into the garden, We
couldn't say; that they took Jong Mens the
the onion and (lower beds revealed in the
morning. ' ' ' , ' ' J
They paid pretty dear for the whistle.
They had not tasted a aingle melon ; they
had got scratched, and torn thnjr clothes ;
were as wot ns drowned rats, a,nd half
scared out of their wits at the ravenous
dog and' the apprehension of being dis
covered, -: ' ;..'l-
Tho next night the owner of the melou
patch invited all the buys of tho village,
including Ned and Joe, to a feast of mel
ons, on the principle of ' returning good
for evil." This circumstance changed
the boys' opinion of " Old Swipes," and
hi jmilons were never afterwards dis
turbed. , . . ' i :, . ,
A printrr not long ago, being " flung"
by his sweet heart, went to the ollice and
tried to commit tuiicide with the " Mioofing
sfick," hut th thing wouldn't go Hi'. -The
" devil," wishing to ' pacify him, told him
i jeep into the samt nn where the editor
was writing duiu to del nqueij, subs-.rjL
t-r. lie did so, and the tiled was iu:ig
i. 'al. He frays that the pi-tcre of depair
which he there beheld .fully reconciled
him to his fate. .
Spibitl' al 'Apteal A Colossal sail
or, full of whisky, went into the llocton
"Jiothel," one day last winter. The day
was very cold outside, but the air of the
chapel was hot, and being crammed with
poor people, in all frtages of dirt, its air
was not pleasant. ' This tta.e of things
Toduc-jd visible e-tfocu upon tho drunken
tailor. Ha becam i uualmisli, and dispos

since, six young gentlemen bade farewell
Id tho lasses who hud won their hearts
amid Scotia's blooming heather, nnd sought
th'i nhores of America, in liopo of being ,

life. They located nl Chicago, where tho

Nevering exertions, till fortuno ot last so

lance to pny their passnge. The girla, .

embarked with several hundred other em

journey down tho St. Lawrence. Tliat

of the six betrothed maidens, five found
either fn-ry or watery graves. Tho sixth

up for drowned, and only by faithful and
persistent nttentiou was her life saved.
All of her worldly possessions were gone,
but the kind-hearted women at Montreal
supplied her abundantly when they heard'
her tiU'eeting- story. Kventually she
reached her destination, and in a late num
ber of the Chicago Tribuno there is
chronicled the marriage of Mr. Adam
Tate, of Chicago, to Miss Jeanette Petti- "

hi long exertions; and ot the wedding i
there were present two of the other five
young men, whoso feelings, when tliey
contrasted tho happiness of their friend '!

strange nondescript, as largo it3 black '
ram w ith eyes Hashing fire, and breathing
vtry hard, running furiously towards his .
bhuw. Providentially ho upran aside,
and before the assailant could stop and
turn upon him, ho hnd : run such a dis- '
tance as gave hope of deliverencef, when
ho came full butt against a luan running,,
in an opposite' direction.

The tone of the question, and the com- '
panyof a human crenture, in some meas
ure dispelled the frisrht of the faithful man : .
nnd ndmoni.-dicd him that he, if any one,
should have the cournge to face the pow- ;
ors of darkness, so he turned nnd ran af
ter the stranger, who ho thought, by mis- '
take, had takcu tho. wrong direction..
They soon came up to the object of their
pursuit, which had got into a ditch and
was roaring terrifically. The stranger,
