and explained about New York; but

! explaining this matter thoroughly
would, be wearisome, and require a
! great deal of time. We do not blame

in a bedquilt and profound medita

thought we would get alonf without
it. The cause of this great Derao

fully but why should we take up

planation of a political matter of the
past? iUnder the circumstances
some tfoiJId go and yield to the
soothing influence of the maddening
bowl, but we do not advise that. It

with that sense of surprise and aston
ishment that a man does who has had
a large brick block fall on him when
he was not expecting it. Although

we said Inst week. It sounds hollow

The windpipe does not communi
cate with the mouth; a-hole is, as it
were, bored right through the back
of the head. Engineers would do
well to copy the action of the whale's
blow-hole; a more perfect piece of
structure it is impossible to imagine.
Day and night, asleep or awake, the
whale works his breathing appara
tus in such a manner that not a drop
of water ever gets down into the
lungs. Again, the whale must of
necessity stay a much longer, period
of time under walft than seals; this
alone might possibly drown him, in
asmuch as the lungs cannot have
access to fresh air. We find that
this difficulty has been anticipated
and obviated by a pecul;ar reservoir
in the venous system, which reservoir
is situated at the back of the longa.

coiled themselves up in his blankets.
He fait them hunting for cosy spots
about bis legs, and knew that he
ought to get up and provide them
with some loose straw, but a sleepy
man in a warm bed on a cold night
is not over-obliging, and the' profes
sor snored on musically, as is his
custom. The reptiles crowded upon
one another, quarrelled, fought a lit
lie, hissed, but the professor did not
budge; only now and then he would
wake slightly and cry sortly: "Whist,
boys; be easy, boys."
At last a big coaehwhip snake
found an opening near the ede of
the blankets and slowly glided in.
There was a gentle waving up and
down of the bedclothes- as the big
elaybar.k serpent moved about, get
ting himself comfortable, when sud
denly he slipped about two-thirds of
his frigid length against the warm
legs of the professor. The professor
made a violent remark. Ho sat up
in bed, gathered a handful of snakes
in each hand, depositing them care
fully on the floor, ihen throwing
back the bedclothes he administered
a kick that sent the coach whip fly

pride; so rich, and yet so industrious;
so patient and so persevering in his

obliging. There are a thousand no
ble traits about his character. lie is
generally hospitable. Eat and drink
with him, and he won't set a mark on
3-ou and sweat it out with double
compound interest. Some people I
know will; you are welcome. He will
do you a kindness without expecting
a return by way of compensation; it
is not so with everybody. He is usu
ally more honest and sincere less
disposed to deal in low and under
handed cunning than many I could
name. He gives to society its best
support, its firmest pillar that sup
ports the editiee of government. He
is the lord of nature. Look at him
in his homespun and gray; laugh at
him if you. will, but believe he can

Swine breeders have not suffi
ciently borne in mind the variation
in the amount of lean meat found in
the carcasses of different hogs. The
Berkshire is universally credited with
having more lean than any other
breed; but even Bcrkshires very in
this regard, as do other classes of
swine. Hence, by closely scanning
the cut up carcasses, giving prefer
ence to certain families showing lib
eral presence of muscular substance,
these to be used as breeders, the rel
ative quantity of lean could be in
creased any family or breed. It is
well known that some hogs when re
duced to an impoverished state, are
really very thin, as the term is un
derstood, while the others having as
meagre an amount of fat as the thin
nest, yet have greater fullness of all
the parts, and under no circumstances
do 'they become so lean In appear
ance as the others. This difference
is owing entirely'to the greater size
of the muscles the motive parts
and d'fference is inTariably shown in
the cut-up meat. So it will be seen
that there are two modes of making
a very correct estimate of this pecu
liar difference in swine by compar
ing animals that are, so far as we are
Abla to judge, alike reduced, then

TempOi-ance aEd the Childron.
BY RET. AirarD TAYLOR.
What have the children' to do with it ? Is
there any danger that they will be drunk
ards ? Can they exert any influence to help
on with the Temperance work ? Is it not
sufficient that we teach them religion, and
leave them to take their chance as to the
Temperance question ?
Such inquiries as thscd are often honestly
made, by good people who think that teach
ing children Temperance is a needless ex
penditure of time and effort, or that ifr is
an -intrusion on juvenile religious education.
It is the children's business. Drunkards
they may not be now, and the thought of
one's own child ever becoming a sot is so
horrible, that every parent shrinks from
considering the bare possibility of it; but if
the business of drunkard-making goes on its
present vigor till our children grow up, it
is well that we teach them How to guard
against the temptations placed in their way.
The children's influence, both for preven
tion and reform, is so great that the c.ause
ear;not afford to be without it. And so far
from Temperance being either antagonisti0
tp religion or an excrescence on it, the two
are so intimately linked together, nay, a
part of each other, that it is impossible
faithfully to teach the one without at the
same time teaching the other.
HBs noble to reform drunkards; it
brave to rescue the fallen, and to raise the
degraded from the gutter; itjis glorious work
to 'put out a groat conflagration; hut it is
yet better if we can quench the spark, while
it is yet a spark, so that there shall be no
conflagration to put out. It is as brave and
as noble work to keep people from being
drunkards, as to try ito elevate them after
strong drink has reduced them below the
level of beasts. And it is easier and cheap
er to prevent than to reform; to teach a boy
not to be a drunkard, than to reform him,
and to pay for the mischief he does, when
drink has gained the mastery over him.

It cannot too constantly be insisted upon
that drink begets disease, which kiqles a
delirious craving for stimulus, while it de
bilitates the will through strictly physical
causes. The man who drinks in order to
exercise his moral muscle, soon finds that
lie lias laid his head in the lap of a Delilah,
who has shorn him of his strength whiie he
thought he was only refreshing himself for
the conflict. It may be all very well for
the charioteer who wishes to perfect his eye
and hand ia skilful driving, to skirt the
very edge of the precipice, though I doubt
whether the wise would applaud rr employ
him. But it becomes a very different mat.
ter if tle air about the brink is heavy with
the reeling fumes of calbonie acid gas. Why
do not these "temperance" men advocate
the moderate use of opium on the same
principles as those on which they uphold
moderate drinking? Because, they will
teH j'ou, the yhysieal effect of opium is to
debilitate tlie will (and with it, of course,
the power of self control) and ultimately to
destroy it. And this, everv scientific ph'
sician will tell you, i3 precisely the effect of
the liquors of our day. It enslaves men,
not simply by power of habit nor. from a
sensualized will. The most awful and hope
less drunkards aro often those who hate
and fight against their sin the most fiercely.
They abstain for a while, but it is only a
crust forming over volcanic fires. They are
borne away in an hour when they think not.
