Some years ago a Quaker knljrlit of
i!s slicurs anil thimble, who exercised

posed upon by tin atlrolt Rcotiudrd,
! who contrived to jret a suit of clothes

The ttecotpit wits plaeetl on his books
and .soon forgotten. About live ycai-s
iiflewtirtls he was examining his old
records of debt Hlltl ftvdit. profit ntid

to this nccolint, HikI all tbe ciriiiinstaii
cea attending mine fresh to his mind.
Suddenly nil odd tiioitgllt snggested it
self. "I'll try an Cxperiiucnt,'.' stiid Jiii to

catofrtlig tla? rogue and getting my
lie immediately prcpftri'd tin tulrer-
ti.-tuiiieut in snbstanee as follows, which
he insertitl in tile Kent Humid :
- If Mr. Henry febbsr, who was
in L'anlerlsuy about the inoiith of
AllgtWt, in the year 1183, will send his
address to the editor of tbU paper, lie
will hear of something to advantage."
Having Instmcted the editor not to
disclose nis name to t lie rogue if be
should cult, but to retjuest the latter to
leave bis tnldress, the Quaker patiently
awaited the result of bis exs'iiuiciit.
In short lime be was informed by a
note from the editor tluit the individ
ual alluded to in i lie advertisement,
having arrived from London, might
be found at the "Kose Hotel."
The tailor lost no time in preparing
a transcript of hU account, not lor
getliug to cliarge inten'St from the
time that tlie debt was incurred. Tak
ing a bailiff with him, w ho bore a
legal process suited to the occasion, he
soon arrived lit the lodgings of the
swindler. The bailiff was instructed
to stand off nt a little distance till a
signal should indicate the time for
him to approach.
The Quaker now entered the wffec
roomiiud rang the bell ; and when tlie
servant appeared, mincsted him to
inform the gentleman oil whom be was
in search, that ii friend Wished to see
him. The .vaiter obeyed tlie sum
mons, and soon both debtor and cred

oil' by this denial of bis identity.
"All, John! I know thee well. Thou
art the very 'man I wished to see.
Thou hast at this moment the very
coat tluit I made for thee. Thou must
acknowledge it was of good stuff and
well made, or, it could not have lasted
thee so long.'
"Ob, ye.-," said the gentleman, a)v
petulug suddenly to recollect himself;

of my fortune."
Here be liantled the Quaker a copy
of the paper containing the advertise

above. Tin.' Quaker looked at it with
Imperturbable gravity and continued
"Yes, I see thou art "in hick ; but as
my demand is a very small one, 1

A tap at Ibe window hero brought
the bailiff into the presence of the
parties. The swindler was mrtieu-
larly astonished at the appearance of
this lunctionary, w bo immediately be
gan to execute "his part of the drama.
"Vyhat!" exclaimed the rogue in an
angry tone ; "you surely liavnt sued
me ? '
Yes, I have " replied the Quaker ;
"and thou should bo tlianktul that
nothing worse has liapiened to tliee."
"Come in then.'' said the debtor,
finding himself fairly caught ; "coine
ill and! will pay you if I must."
The three w'eiit Into l lie hoti-o to
gether, and the slipjiery gentleman
having ascertained the annum! of the
bill, paid it in full. The tailor having
signed the receipt, placed it in the
hands of ills late creditor, with feel
ings sneh as may be readily imagined.
The swindler took it, and for the first
time glanced at the various items of
which it was conqioscd. He said noth
ing till lie came to the last charge,
which was "tor advertising;" when
he broke forth. Hallo ! what's this ?
For AdvertlsinaS" That's an odd
charge In a tailor's bill. You're
cheating uie !"
"Ob. no," coolly replied the Qua

quickly retorted the rogue.
"Convince me of that." said tbo
Imperturbable Quaker ; "and thou
wilt find me ready to confess the fault."
" You said in your advertisement
tlmt I -bou M hear of something to my
advantage, if I would come la-re."
"Tbou art mistaken," immediately
responded the Quaker : "I only proni-
. ised tlmt thou shouldst liear of some
thing to advantage, and Is it not to the
. advantage of a poor tailor to eollei t
! an old debt "
I "If I Catch you in the street." said
the swindler, in the deeiest rage, "I'll
give you sneh a thrashing as will not

' Nonsense j" siiitl the Quaker ;
: "if thou really intend to do anything
of that sort, we had lieiter step out in

at once." ' - ;r . .
The i-ogne was cnmpleh-lv aba-died
, by ,the coolness of the (fiaker, ami

" Now," said tile tailor, good na
turedly, "lot nie give thee a piece of

A Hindoo priest called in all tlie

to sleep, the man who had committed
the theft, thinking to out-wit the priest,
cunnuigly cut off an Inch from his
stick, firmly believing, by this means,
to attain the length of the others by
next morning. The sticks were re
turned, and, by comparing tlieni, the

oftbc clerks in attendance to walk
back into tlai doctors's office, and lie
would sliow him something.
The lioy went kick, and was direct

Ibe clerk, who at once fold him of the

grew quite indignant, and desired the
young man to go at once ami bring
the lad back, so that the whole matter
might be explained.
Tlie young man went as desired, and
found the oor little fellow on the op
jiosite side of the street gazing across
at tin drug store, nearly frightened to
death, lie was entreated to come

tlie doctor who, by the way, is a very

Kxthiction of fire by sinotliering Is
a method which deserves notice. When
a lady' dress catches fire her usual
course is to rush out of tlie mora
screaming r help, thereby causing
the flames to spread over" her with
great fury. In sneh eases "Iielp" is at
hand in the shape of the table-cloth or
the hearth-rug. If she were promptly
to envelope herself In one or tlie other
or if some one were to do It for her
the tire would at once go out for
want of air. Again, if window-curtains
catch fire, a common tendency
for mankind is to nwh out shouting
"Fire!" and "Iielp!" Reader why
not help yourself especially If you
lie a man by finding out lieforelmnd
what is the best course of procedure in
tlie circumstances? You ought at once
to tear tlie. curtains down, and throw
the rug or table-cloth over them. If
you cannot do this, and must leave the
room, don't open the window and by
all means remember to shut the door af
ter you: and thus, by mitHllff of the sup
ply of nlr, at nil events delay the con
flagration as long as jmssihle. It is a
matter of the greatest importance that
a man should have a delinite idea of
what he will do. or atlcinjit, in case
of tire. Opinions may diner as to the

On account of tlie white ants, there is

doors and tlie beams over bead are of
wood. Houses in Northern India

Klru Without Money.
Many a man is rich without money.
Thousands of men with nothing in
their pocket, and thousands without
even a pocket, are rich. A own born
with a good sound constitution, a
good stomach, a good heart, and good
bulbs, and 11 pretty good bead-piece, is
rich. Oood bones are better than gold;
tough muscles than silver ; and nerves
that dash fire and carry energy to ev
ery function are better than houses and
laud. It is better than a landed es
tate to have the right kind of Cither
and mother. Oood breeds anil bad
breeds, exist among men as really as
among herds and horses. Education
may do much to check evil tendencies
or to develop good ones ; but it is a
great thing to inherit the right pro
portion of (acuities to start With. The
man is rich who has a good disposi
tion who is naturally kind, patient,
cheerful, hopefht, and" who lias a Ila
voiof wi: and fun in his composition.
The liardest thing to get along with
in (his life, is a man's own self. A
cross, selfish fellow a desponding and
complaining fellow a timid and earc
burdened man these are all born de
formed on the inside. Their feet do
not limp, but their thoughts do.
The Hits of Life. Get out of
them, says Hall's .owmtZ 0 nnh if
you wish to live long, if you wish to
avoid tla- lunatic asylum, if you wish
to escape suicide or a miser's death.
Men and women must have amuse
ment, must have diversion. It is
wholesome for the mind to break away
from its daily vocation or employment
every night. Get out of the ruts, all
ofyou:paya neighborly visit throe
nights in 11 week ; or for two after
noons let tliere be a "let up" in the
way of a drive to the Central Park, a
visit to the "village," an excursion on
tlie river, or in the ears, a pie-hie, a
Celebration, but liest of all, in city or
country, a horseback ride of an "hour
or two, "there and back;" what an
appetite it gives ; after the weariness,
what a delicious sleep follows! Get
out of the rut, two or three hours a
week, and there will be no time lo-tiii
the long run : for it gives activity b
tlie moral nature; it cultivates the in
fectious ; it wakes up observations; it
exercises comparisons ; it gives breadth
ot view on all subjects! It makes a
man more manly ; it makes a woman
mom womanly: and in countless cases
it would save from the mad-housc .'
Dr. BtsiiBV. King Charles If. pay--ed
a visit to Dr. busliby : the doctor is
said to have strutted through the room
Willi his bat cmi, while Iih mnjftstv
walked complacently behind him. Willi,
his lut under hi- arm. But when ho
was taking leave at the door, the dnc
thus addressed the King: ! hope
your majesty will excuse my want of
respect hitherto ; nut, u my boys were
to Imagine tliere was a greater man in
tlieklngilom than myself, I should ncv
