who lias liecn working In the neigh

proached young Hazlct. who bad just
recovered from a long attack of hlliou
fever, and accused him of talking

give his authority, hut Insisted on the
troth of the charge that he illa.let
; bad been making Improper remarks
about bim (Hauuin . and as nothing
offered by llaxlet seemed to appease
him. btit I became more and more
exeited ami violent. llar.lct sttrtwl off
j to get rid of bim. As Ha.let started,
' Haimtll suddenly drew a huge howie
; knife and struck at Ha.let, tlie point
. of the knife glancing across HaJet's
i breast, but doing no damage
being weak from recent illness, and
! having no weapon with which to de
' feud himself, attempted to escape out
of the reach of (he infuriated man:
; but as he turned Hauuni again made
: a lunge HI him with the knife, this
: time the knife entering at tlie point of
the right shoulder, glancing toward
i tlie spine, making an ugly wound
, about an inch and a half deep the
width of the knh. Parties present
then interfcrred, and in tlie scuffle
! llauutn lost the blade of the knife but
I retained the handle. No attempt
j was made to detain Hauuni after this

for the arrest of Hainan were placed
in tile hands of an olllecroii Tuesday,
and we suppose, ere this, he has been
arrested and tried for the assault.

their blankets one evening, just pre

! one of the professors raised up in Nil
and remarked he smelt something.
1 and asking his brother professor, who
was his partner for the night, if he
! couldn't smell something that lasted
awful rough. The answer was lliisat
j isthctory, inasmuch as it was a declar
; ation of a failure to get a scent of
i anything more offensive to the inter
I rngated's olfactories than the usual
' aroma emitted bv the Interrogator.
- Of course such an answer let professor
! No. 1 out. and he quietly laid down
I again ; but that smell of "somethln'
j dead" stuck to him. and he soon rear
: ed up again, and queried his chum a-
to his ability to smell any peculiarly
strong smell in the vicinity. This
scotching around in the night when a
man should lie asleep, didn't set well.
I and professor No. 1 was ordered to '
i liaug bis snoot on the mule's ear and j
go to sleep, But a few minutes traus

: profbssqr No. 2 changed his position
I in bed. which he liad no sooner done
j than an overpowering smell of some-
j thing dead struck him. too; WpeTcitp-
on lie suddenly, and without any re- .
ganl to tlie proprieties of the occasion, j
sprang to his feet, and marched boldly !
and defiantly away from thar. littering 1
bis belief that there was certainly
something "rotten in Denmark." j
I That lied was ransacked, and :tst dil
igent search, the truth of the assert iosts
of both the professors were clearly I
I proven, and tlie litforc shaken con i
i deuce of their (Wlow-mount.ilneers in
I their veracity, fully restored, as from
! a pocket of a garment upon which
they liad pillowed their heads was
; drawn forth a pint, more or less, of

hereafter not to carry dead "birds'

a week tit a stretch, without "irrigat

man, if the law holds true that
'great men always have good
mothers." Henry Wilson was born
to labor, and he has always labored
nt the work in hand as though born
only for that one thing, and what,
ever the character of tlio work,
whether driving home a shoe.ieg or
drawing a statute for the salvation
or government of a great nation, he
lias added to it digiut j and luster.
The disadvantages surrounding his
youthful work is liest told in a
speech ot his at Great Falls, N. II.,
February 24, 1872. He said :
"1 lett my home at ten years of
ago, and served an apprenticeship
ot eleven years, receiving a month's
schooling each year, and at the end
of e'even years of hard work, a
yoke of oxen and six sheep, which
brought me the mm of eighty-tour
dollars. Eighty-tour dollars for
eleven years of hard toil. I never
spoilt the amount of one dollar in
money, counting every penny, from
the time I was twenty-one years of
age. I know what it is to travel
weary mi'es and ask my fcllowmen
to give mc leave to toil.
1 remember thai in October, 1S33,
I walked into your village from my
native town, went through your
mills seeking employment. If any
body hail offered mc niiiC dollar!
per month, I should have accepted
it gladly. I went to Salmon Falls,
I went to 1 lover, I went to New
market, and tried to get work, with
out success, and I returned home
tout-sore and weary, but not dim
couraged. I put my ck on my
back and wa'kcd to where I now
live in .Jassaolitisetts, and learned
a mechanic's trade. I know tl
hard lot that toiling men have to
endure in this world, and every
pulsation of my heart, every con
vict ion of my judgment, every as
piration of my soul, puts me on tho
side of the toiling of men my comi.
try aye, of all tlie countries."
