rOILUHED KTERY MTU11UT BY
COLT-. VAX GLEVE.
ToBa Typo wm a printer's lad,
Bouwd in the good old -y ;
And when he'd served his seven years,
The devil wu to pay.
80 when his boss had paid him off,
To put himself to proof
He swnng his bundle, took his stick,
And left his master's roof.
He started in on odds and ends
Pertaining to hie trade ;
For well he knew that much depends
On first impressions made.
Where duty called him he was found,
StlU working in his place ;
He stood while setting up a job,
Which really was the case.
He never swerved an inch from rules,
To make his matter fat;
But spaced life's paragrafhs, that fools
Might never scoff thereat.
In course of time his honest heart
Twined round a muslin dress,
And as the wearer was agreed,
Their fond lips went topress.
He married pretty Emma Grey,
With many haws and'bems ;
This Uttle joke he used to say :
" He'd like ten thousand ems."
Bweet Emma proved to honest Tom
A true and faithful wife.
And freely was admitted to
The sanctum of his life.
Time's roller passed across life's bed,
But never inked Tom's wealth ;
His troubles bore a double-lead ;
Still he composed himself.
And so he kept his pages clear,
And grew to be a type
Of all that manhood holds most dear
When Tom with age was ripe.
At last, when came the final rest,
Without one sigh or moan,
He said : " My friends, above my breast
Place no imposing stone. "
He made his last impression here,
While yet his heart was warm ;
Just m the nick closed his career,
And Jeath locked up his form.
Here lies a printer many a tear
In sorrowing eyes shall swell ;
For though he handled much brevier
His life was nonpareil.
Copy his virtues in the land
Which gave to him his birth ;
When such editions are worked off,
We lose the salt of earth.

Miss Mowbray writes to a friend :
"I met a Mr. Willis at Mrs. Austin's
last reception, and a more exasperating
compouaa ol contradiction and self-
possession I never saw. He would not
agree with me upon a single point,
though he is a gentleman with it all.
He asked permission to call, and is
here quite often. The other day he
sent me a bouquet of purple columbine,
lady's slipper, and mistletoe. In what
spirit I know not. In return I sent
him a nosegay of love-in-a-mist, narcis
sus, and mountain pink. I am sure I
shall never like him. I never could
bear the self-opinionated men ; there is
too much independence about them."
Air. Willis became, n, frAn

people began to look upon him as her
suitor. He escorted her to parties and
receptions, and seemed quite devoted
in his cool, easy way. As for the young
lady, she was gradually getting over her

gentleman had an influence over her
which was only possible to a person
possessing strong magnetic power. He
was just the man to manage a spoiled
self-willed beauty, and she knew it.
But with a spirit worthy of a better
cause, she made a determined stand
against all opposition, preliminary to the

One morning Miss Mowbray was sit
wng in ner boudoir, when Mr. Willis's
card was handed to her with the re
quest that she should see him. At first
the idea occurred to her " not to be at

his intention to leave soon for another
part of the world, she slipped on her
favorite dress and descended to meet
"Ah, good-morning, Mr. Willis

the astonished young lady.
"Had I asked in due form, Miss
Mowbray, my request would Ooubtless

take the thing for granted." (This
with a good-natured smile, and the black
eyes looking straight into hers.)
There was a silence for a few minutes,
and then Miss Mowbray, looking a? his
coat-lapel, said :
"That is a peculiar-looking flotoer.
What do you call it ?" 1
"It is called the 'Venus fly-trip.'

sleep-walker should walk out of a second-story
window, but that he should
continue his unconscious walk for some
distance on the ground is something
well-nigh without precedent. But this
was the experience of Mr. James Hen
derson, of Allegheny, on Sunday night.
Mr. Henderson resides on Rebecca
street, nearly opposite the Allegheny
uas works. On Sunday night he had
an attack of somnambulism, and started
out for a walk without knowing any
thing about it. He walked out of the
second-story front window, and fell to
the pavement below. Just under the
window is a little " stoop," surrounded
by a railing. How the sleep-walker
avoided falling on this railing, and
thereby breaking his ribs, at least,
passes comprehension ; but he did
avoid it, and the worst injuries he re
ceived were several severe bruises and
a lacerated foot. The most wonderful
part of the transaction, however, was
the fact that the fall did not awaken
Mr. Henderson, and he got up and con
tinued his walk in a state of uncon
sciousness. After going a short dis
tance, however, he was awakened either
by the pain of his injuries or some other
cause, and returned to the house, where
THE SEA SERPENT OF 1818.
un Aug. 21, 1818, several persons of
uoston stopped at Lynn on their return
irom an excursion of pleasure from
TNanant, and stated that while crossing
tne ocacn, schools of fish, perch and
hardheads, were thrown upon the beach,
left high and dry by the receding waves'
ana at a short distance a large animal
was playing in the water, and had
driven these fish on the shore. It be
ing twilight, they came on to Lynn.
This news soon spread. I arose at 3
o'clock a. m., on the 22d, and proceeded
to Red Rock, a short, rocky promon
tory running into deep water ; there
were about 100 persons on this same
errand. We waited patiently until
5:30 a. m., when one person said :
'" Look at the Nahant end. three-ouar-
ters of a mile ; what is that which looks
like long planks, bobbing up and down,
showing an unequal surface? The
serpent !" The whole crowd rushed as
if by command, clambering overfences,
gullies and through long grass, until
they reached the plain beach. When
nan-way across we came up to him,
right about face. We ran parallel with
him until we reached within 80 to 100
feet ol Red Rock, when a boy threw a
stone toward him. He sunk immedi
ately, and I saw the wake he left when
half-way across Swampscott Bay or har
bor, which was the first I saw of him.
He moved in a steady, rapid, stately
manner, as if unmindful of any specta
tors, between us a clear sunshine un-

These persons saw him on the 20th of
August, at or near Cape Ann, 30 to 40
miles below Nahant Beach. I saw it on
the morning of the 22d. So there is
but little discrepancy in the accounts.

MORTALITY IN GREAT BRITAIN AND
j.ne returns for the first quarter of
the year 1874, in Great Britain show a
rate of mortality below the average
xn England, according to the exhibit
for the quarter, the annual death-rate
would be 23.4 per 1,000 persons, in
Scotland 24 per 1,000, and in Ireland
only 19.5 per 1,000. This low rate for
Ireland will occasion great surprise, as
we are apt to associate poverty and
squalor with disease and death. But
the Irish returns show also uncommon
longevity. There is mention of one
death in Scotland at the age of 100
years, while the "Irish Register" notes
the death of sixteen centenarians, one
of whom was aged 106. one 107. nn
108 and another 111. The " Register"
of Kilshannig, Mallow, notes the death
of a woman aged 108, and adds : " Up
to three days before her death she was
able to walk about and attend to the
business of a farm-house."
Whether owing in part to emigration,
or wholly to longevity, the fact exists
that there is a much larger proportion
of deaths of sexagenarians registered in
Ireland than in England. The ratio
was only 26.2 per cent, of the whole
number of deaths registered during the
quarter in England, while in Ireland it
was no less than 39.6 per cent. The
English Register" ascribes the un
usually low death-rate to the increased
efficiency of administrative sanitary
measures ; but the Irish Register-General
can but attribute it to the mildness
of the season. Poor Patriot Vian
materially improved in his habits of
living. Among the local reports sent
to the " Irish Register" are sadly-sig-
nincant statements like these: " In my
opinion, nearly half the sickness here
(Emily, Tipperary) is due to overcrowd
ing in the damp, filthy cabins of the
poor, where it is not at all an uncom
mon thing to see four or five human
beings, two pigs, a goat, a cow and a
score of fowls, with perhaps a donkey,

District, Xewry : " Several cases of
typhus fever have occurred, all of them
in houses unfit for human habitation,
badly ventilated, and kept in a filthy
condition. In other parts of the town,
where cleanliness was observed, fever of
this kind was absent."
In Ireland, 787 deaths occurred from
frver, and 760 deaths from scarlet fever;
also, 141 deaths from small-pox, 130 of
which were in Ulster. The benefit of
vaccination and revaccination was abun
dantly shown by modified disease and
trifling mortality. A case of small-pox
in an infant was cited, where six chil
dren who had been vaccinated were liv
ing in the same room, and not one of
them took the disease.

ENGLISH MATRONS AND ENGLISH
There was a time, says the Pall Mall
Gazette, when "old maids" were
looked upon with an eye of pity, if not
contempt, and it was thought that mar
riage alone gave women any claim to
consideration. Of late years, however.
there has been a change of opinion in
this respect, and unmarried women not
only rank as high in general estimation
as their married sisters, but bid fair
soon to surpass them. Nor is this to
be wondered at. A very few years ago
it was a rare sight to see a married
woman dancing at any ball given in the
London season, whereas now wivps
dance with greater pertinacity than
their sisters or daughters, and balls are
even given expressly for married
women. The character of the British
matron has, in fact, completely changed ;
instead of being grave and decorous,
she has become a hopping, skipping
creature, delighting every one by her
grace and activity, but at the same
time losing in weight, moral as well as
physical, what she gains in enjoyment.
In the meantime the spinster is rapidly
rising scorning flirtation, she leaves
vain pursuits to the wife and mother.
The Emperor of China has set a good

he has just decreed that special honors

lately died after a life of devotion to
the memory of her betrothed, while the
other, who is still living, declined in
her youthful days to make a most
tempting match, on the ground that
she could not leave her home. Some
few old ladies in England have an equal
claim to recognition of their merits,
and it would both elevate and appease
them if they were in like manner rewarded.

Now, before she is two years old, this

ANECDOTE OF ALEXANDER HAMIL
TON. Hamilton was once applied to for
professional assistance by a man from
New York city, who held the guardian
ship of several orphan children. These
children, then very young, would, on
coming of age, if they had their rights,
succeed to the possession of a large and
valuable estate. In the title-deed of
the estate the guardian had discovered
material defects, and he thought he saw
the way, with the assistance of an able
lawyer, by which he could secure the
title of the whole property to himself,
He opened to Hamilton the whole busi
ness, exhibiting copies of the title-deeds
and explaining how he would proceed
and he promised the great jurist a large
reward if he would undertake the busi
ness. Hamilton said that he must give
to a matter of so much importance due
thought before he decided, and he set a
time for his client to call again.
The guardian called according to
appointment. Hamilton had put in
writing faithful minutes of their former
conversation, which, upon his second
visit, he read aloud.
" I think," said Hamilton, " that is a
true statement of your plans ? "
"Yes, sir," answered his client.
"That is correct. And now, if I may
ask, what have you decided ? "
"I will tell you, sir," replied Ham
llton, sternly ; "you are now complete
ly in my power, and I consider myself
as the future guardian of these un
fortunate orphans. I have decided
that you will settle with them honor
ably to the last penny, or I will hunt
you from the surface of the earth ! "
It is unnecessary to add that the
false-hearted guardian did .not pursue
his nefarious scheme any further.
LEARNING BY EXPERIENCE.
A few days tince an elderly gentle-
who had got out of business and consid
ered that he was too advanced in age to
do hard work, concluded to start a
grocery store. He secured a stock of
goods, and yesterday morning, while
preparing for opening the establish
ment, concluded that he would tap the
kegs of beer left on the previous day.
A friend who was present, seeing him
approaching one of the kegs with an
auger, inquired what he was going to
do, and learned that he intended to
" tap that beer." The questioner sug
gested that the proper way was to place
the faucet in position and drive in the
cork which the revenue stamp covered,
but the old gentleman concluded that
his way was the best, and forthwith
forced a hole through the top of the
keg. Of course the beer ascended like
a fountain as he withdrew the auger,
and he endeavored to suppress it by
putting his hand over the hole, and fail
ing in this, by inserting his linger ; as
a last resort he sat down upon it, call
ing loudly for some one to hand him a
faucet, but meanwhile the beer had
forced its way through his pants,
climbed upward, and was oozing out
everywhere emerging from his waist
band, and even at his shirt-collar, and
the bystanders were laughing so hard
that they were unable to do anything
to relieve him, even if they had dared
to venture within the area of beer spray.
It was not until every drop of liquid
had left the keg that the old gentleman
felt warranted in getting up. Sacra
THE RISE AMD FALL OF CITIES.
It is not only individuals who have
suddenly increased in prosperity and as
suddenly gone down into nothingness ;
there are cities of which the same can
be said. Such a one is Pithole City,
Pa. Within one month from the com
pletion of the first house this city had
a telegraph office and a hotel, costing
the owners 80,000. In one month
more there was a daily paper estab
lished, and in the next a theater : in
another month another theater, and
then an academy of music. In six
months there were seventy-four hotels
and boarding-houses ; in the seventh
month the city had reached its highest
prosperity. It then had 15,000 inhab
itants, elaborate water-works, a city
hall and an expensive city government.
Then occurred the completion of a
labor-saving enterprise, the so-called
Miller Farm Pipe line, by which the
petroleum was sent off independent of
the laboring population. At once 4,000
persons were thrown out of employ
ment, while 2,000 houses became use
less ; this was the death-blow to Pithole
City. At once the hotels, the theaters
and the telegraph office were closed,
and the daily paper gave up its ghost,
while almost every one packed his
trunk and moved out. Only nine fami
lies remained out of a population of
15,000 souls, while the railroad from
Pithole and Oleopolis runs only one
train a day, consisting of a locomotive
and a single car, which is usually
empty ; but the company is obliged to
keep running, otherwise the charter for
the road would be lost. They still hope
against hope for better times for that
unfortunate city, which, in only seven
months, was born, fully grown, got sick
and died. Undoubtedly this is a case
unparalleled in history, modern or an
cient ; neither Egypt nor Greece can
give examples of such rapid changes.
Boston Sunday Times.
A company has been formed in Lon
don with a capital of $1,000,000 "to
provide in the heart of the city an aqa
rium and summer and winter garden,
and, in connection therewith, to afford
facilities generally for the promotion
and encouragement of artistic, scien
tific, and musical tastes." A freehold
site has been procured facing the House
of Parliament and Westminister Abbey.
The Spir-tualists have been holding
their national camp meeting at Plymp-
ton, Mass. One of the preachers,
Daniel Hull, preached a sermon from
Numbers xi., 31:
" There went forth a wind from the Lord
and brought quails from the sea and let them
fall by the camp, a day's journey on this side
and a day s journey on the other eide, and two
cubits high on the face of the earth . "
The preaeher said that estimating a
man's journey at thirty-three miles,
measuring from the center of the camp,
would give an area of 3,421 square
miles. The quails were sent to supply
a demand for meat, and were to last a
month. The quails were two cubits, or
two to three and a half feet deep. We are
told that Israel numbered 600,000 men,
exclusive of women and children. From
this he estimated the nation at 3,000,
000 souls. Said he: " It is bad for
the quail story if the number was less.
