cribes the see no at the theater, at tho time
the carthqnake occurred, as an awful

a tremendous shock was felt, amid a
fearful roar, and the ground rocked like
a ship in a storm. A great cry of terror
aroso from tue audience, who were
thrown into a heap, a great number be

building which fell on them. Then two

lashed out of the theater, and hundreds
clambered into trees in search of safety.
Most of tho people, however, escaped to

dreds of half-dressed men and women,

"Had a funeral in our house yesWr
day," said the boy, ss he took a pickle
out of the tub and put it iu the cat's
month and shut her teeth together on it,
and wont to the showcaso, while tbe gro
curyman, whoae back had been turned
during the pickle e xercise.though by the
way the cat jumped into the dried spplo
barrel and began to paw aud scratch
with all four of her feet, and yowl, that
she was going to have a fit.
"I hadn't heard abiut it," said the
groceryman, as he took the cat by the
nock and tossed her out in the back shed
into an old oyster box full of saw
dust with the parting injunction that if
she was going to have a tit alio had bet
ter go out where there was plenty of
fresh air. "Death is always a bad thing
to contemplate. One day we are full of
health and joy and cold vituals, and the
next we are screwed in a box, a few words
are said over our remains, and a few
tears are shed, and thon thero is a race
to see who shall get from the cemetery
first, and though we may tbiuk we are sn
important factor iu tho world's progress,
and sometimes think that it would be
unable to put np margins and have to
stop the deal, the world goes right
along, and it must annoy people wlu
die to realize that they don't count for
gauio. Tho greatest man in tho world is
only a nine spot when he is dcad.because
somebody else takes the tricks the dead
man ought to have taken. But say, who
is dead at your house?"
"Our rooster. Take earn, don't you
hit mo with that canvassed ham,'; said
tho boy, as the groceryman looked mad
to learn that there was nobody dead but
a rooster, when he had preached such a
sermon on the subject. "Yes, how soon
we are forgotten when we are gone. Now
you would have thought that rooster's
hen would have remained faithful to
him for a week at least. I have watched
them all the spring, and I never saw a
moro perfect picture of devotion than
that between tho bantam root tor and his
hen. They were constantly together and
there was nothing too good for her. He
would dig up angle worms and call her,
and when she came up ou a gallop and
siw the great big worm on the ground
she would look ro proud of her rooster,
and he would straighten tip and look as
though he was saying to her, '1 m a
daisy,' and then she would look at him
as if she would like to bito him, aud just
as she was going to pick up the worm he
would snatch it ana swallow it himself,
and chuckle and walk around and be
full of business, as though wondering
wbv she didn't take tho worm after he
had dng it for her, and then the hen
would look disappointed at first, and
then she would look resigned, as much
as to say: 'Worms aro too rich for
my blood anyway, aud tho poor dear
rooster needs them more than l uo, be-
causo he has to do all tho crowing,' aud
sho would go oil and find a grasshopper
and eat it on the sly, for fear he woull
see her and complain because she didn't
ilivido. Oh, 1 have never seen anything
that seemed to me so human ns tho rela
tions between that rooster and hen. He
seemed to try to do everything for her.
Ho would make hor stop cuckling when
sho hid an egg, and ho would try to
cackle and crow over it as though Lo had
laid it, and sho would get off iu a corner
and cluck in a modest, retiring manner,
us though she wished to convey the idea
to tho servant girls in tho kitchen that
tun rooster had to uo all the hard work,
aud she was only a useless nppeiiilage.tit
onlv lor society and comp.tuy for him.
But I was disgusted with him when the
poor hen was setting, iho first week
that sKe sat on tho eggs ho seemed to got
along firstrato, because ho had a couple
of flower beds to dig up, which a press
of business had caused him to neglect
before, and a couplo of neighbors gar
dens to destroy, so ho seemed to be glad
to havo his hen retire to ber boudoir and
set: but after ho had been shoo ed out of
tho garden and flower beds he teemed to
bo nervous, and evidently wanted to be
petted, and would go near tho hen, and
sho would tell him to go and tako a walk
around the block, because sho hadn't
time to leave her business, and if she
didn't attend to it they would havo a lot
of spoiled eggs on their hands, and no
family to bring up. lie would scold and
seem to tell her that it was all foolish
ness; that for his part he didn't want to
hear a lot of chickens squawking around.
Uo would seem to argue with her that
a brood of chickens would bo a dead
give-away on them both, and thoy would at
once be classed as old folks, while if
they were Mono in the world they would
be spring chickens, and could go in
young society, but the hen would scold
back and tell him he ought to be
ashamed of himself to talk that way, and
he would go off mad, and sulk around a
spell, aud then go to a neighbor s hen
house, and sometimes he wouldn't come
back till the next day. The hen would
be sorry she had spoken so cross, and
would sesm pained at his going away,
and would look anxiously for his return,
and when he came back, after being oat
in the rain all night, she would be solic
itous after his health, and tell him he
ought to wrap something around him.
but he acted as though hs didn't care for
health, and he would go out again and
get chilled through. Finally the hen
came off the nest with ten chickens, and
the rooster seemed very proud, and
when anybody came out to look at them
he would crow, and seemed to say they
were all his chickens, though the ben
was a long time hatching them, and if it
bad been him that waa setting on
them he would have batched them out
ia a week or died a trying. Bat the ex
poeure told on him, and he went into a
decline, and one morning we fonnd him
drd. Do yon know I never seen a ben
that seemed to realize a calamity as she
did. she looked pale, and her eves
looked red, and she seemed to be utterly
arnshed. If tbe chickens, which were so
young they could not realize that they
were little orphans, became noisy, and
got to pulling and hanling over a worm.
aud con due tod themselves in sa un
seemly manner, shs would talk to them
in hen language, with tears in her
eyes, and it was a picture of
woo. But tbe next day a neigh
boring rooster got to looking through
the fence from the alley and trying to
flirt with her. At first she was iadig
nant and seemed to tell him be oagbt ta
go about his bnsineaa and leave her
alone, but the dade kept clacking, and
pretty toon tha widowed hen edged up
toward tbs fenoo and asked him to com
in, bat the bole is ths fence vss too
small for him, aud then the chickens
ont out into the alley and t"S ben fol
lowed them out. I shall alwajs think
she told the chickens to go out, so she
wonld have an excuse to go after them
and flirt with the rooster, and I think it
a perfect shame. She ia out in the alley
half of her time, aud I could cuff her. It
seems to mo wrong to so soon forget s
deceased rooster; but I suppose a hen
can't be any more than human. Say,
you don't want to buy a good dead roos
ter, do yon? Yon could pick it and sell
it to somebody that owes you, for a
"No. I don't want soy deceased poul
try that died of grisf, and you bad bet
ter go home and watch your hen, or yon
will be bereaved some more," and the
erocervmsn went out into the shed to
see if the cat was over its fit, snd whtn
he came back the boy was gone, and af
ter awhile the groceryman saw a crowd
in frout of tho store, and he went out
and fonnd the dead rooster lying on tho
vegetable stand, with a paper pinned on
its breast, on which was a sign: "This
rustur dide of colix. For sale cheap to
boarding-house only." He took tho dead
rooster and threw it out into the street,
and looked up and down the street for
the bad boy, and went in end bid a raw
hide here he could reach it handy.
Ifow Alcohol Affects the Heart.
Dr. N. B. Richardson, of London, tho
noted physician, says he was recently
able to convey a considerable amount of
conviction to an intelligent scholar by a
simple experiment. Tho scholar was
singing the praise of the "Ruddy Bum
per," and saying ho could not get
through the city without it, when l)t.
Richardson said to him.
"Will you be Rood enouali to feel my
pulse as I stand here?"
lie did so. I said, "Count it carefully;
what does it say?"
"lour pulse says seventy-lour.
I then sut down in a chair and nsked
bins to count it again. He did so, and
"Your pulse has gone down to sev
I then lav down on the lonnge, and
said: "Will you take it again?"
Ue replied: " hy, it is only 04; what
nn extraordinary thing?"
I then said: "Wbea you lie down at
night, that is the way nature gives ycur
heart rest. You know nothing about it,
but that beating o.gan is resting to that
extent; and if you reckon np.it is a great
deal of rest, because in lying down the
heart is doing ten strokes less to the
minute. Multiply that by sixty and it
istiOO; multiply it by eight hours, and
within a fraction it is 5000 strokes
different; and as the heart is throwing
six ounces of blood at every stroko. it
makes a difference of 30,000 ounces of
lifting during the night. When I lie
down at night without any alcohol, that
is tho rest my heart gets. But when you
take your wine or grog you do not allow
that rest for the influence of alcohol is
to increaso tho number of strokes, and
instead of getting this rest you put on
something liko 15,000 extra stiokes, and
the result is you rise up very seedy and

his happiness. I would like thoso who
tiko stimulants to give them rest, just to
take tho opposite side of the question
into consideration, aud see how the two

An Insnuc Woman's Letter.
Willurd As- lum for the Insane, at
Ovid, has among its inmates a Danish
lady of good education, and who, previ
oils to her insanitv, occupied a respecta
ble position in society. Her delusion is
that she iB immensely weilthy the
queen of the universe. On all other sub
jeets she is relatively rational, and con
verses with caso and fluenoy. She has
the delusion that the asvlnm is her
cast e, built for her special benefit, and
that the attendants aud inmates aro her
servants. Recently she managed to elude
the vigilance of tho attendadts and mail
a letter to a brother in Denmark, stating
that she had become wealthy and was
living iu a magnificent mansion, sur
rounded by luxury and attendants, and
bad abundance to provide for herself
and family, and closed by urging him to
accept her hospitality and spend the
balance of his life with ber. Having ire
quently heard of tbe good luck of his
oountrymcn ia the land across the sea, he
did not have a suspicion but what
fortune bad favored his sis
ter, and she had actually become rich,
Ue therefore proceeded immediately
to close out bis business, in which he
bad managed with some difficulty to
support his family, with the proceeds be
purchased tickets for the transportation
of his wife and five children to central
New York. Allowing the letter announc
ing his intention of coming only a few
days' start, the little family took ship for
America with light hearts and creat ex
pectations. Arriving in New York, they
set aside barely sufficient to take them to
their destination, and spent the remain
der in improvisg their appearance so
that they should not bring discredit on
their rich kinswoman. On reaching Ovid
they recognized WUlard from the de
scriptiongiven in the sister's letter. The
cruel disappointment of the brother and
his wife was pitiable. Instead of findine
a wealthy sinter to welcome them to her
palatial abode, they fonnd her in a hope
less condition and an inmate of an
insane asylum. Letters of the in
sane should be kept and susabitted to
some central authority. More than one
asylum physician has lost his life from
attempting to evade the sending of im

A Bka Baa Marred.
"So Jones is dead." said one Somer-
ville man to another.
"Tes, poor fellow," was the reply;
"What did he die of?" iaonired the
"Starvaiien, was ths answer.
"Starvation! Good rracioos. the man
was worth f SO.fXO." j
'I know that; fisvertbsless, hs died of
starvation. I'll tell yon how it was: Jones
was alwsys fancying that there was some
thing the matter with h'.m; so be went to
the doctor one day and bad bimsolf ex
amined, and the doctor informed him
that ho had kidney disease, and that, be
sides taking medicine, he must diet him
self. Said the doctor: 'You must avoid
all kinds of salt meats, salt fish, pota
toes, cabbage, and vegetables of every
kind.' Jon s followed the advice, but
fonnd himself no better. Uo went to
snother doctor, snd, after beiug exam
hied, was informed that be must avoid
all kinds of fresh meats also. This did
not do him any good, as ho thought, and
he went to unother doctor, who highly
approved of the advice which hod previ
ously been given, and further warned
bim against all kinds of pastry, likewise
shellfish, iucluding oysters and clams.
Tho best thing for you is a milk diet,
said this doctor; so Jones lived wholly
npon milk. Not feeling himself any
better hs went to another doctor, who
cautioned bim to avoid milk, above all
things, if lie wanted to get well. Ibis
reduced Jones to a diet of oold water and
fresh air, and, finding himself no better
nnder this regime, ho went to another
doctor, who advifed him to beware of
drinking too much water and being too
much in the air. J. his last advice cut ou
tuo last of Jones' articles of diet, and he
died of starvation, as I have told you."
Changes la Eu;lMi Society.
During the last thirty or forty years
not merely the superstructure but the
foundation of English society has
changed. Tho plutoeratio has gradually
been substituted for tho aristocratic
principle; many of tho prejudices and
sentiments of the latter may bavo been
assimilated by the former, and it is for
this reason that there exists a tendency
to ignore or to minimize the fundament
al character of the metamorphosis. The
Spectator a fow days ago published a
list of the enormous sums left by a
selection of rich men who havo died
during tho last decado, and the large
proportion of theso consisted of persons
belonging to the class of nouveaux riches
or parvenus. Before the Crimean war
the number of families who had at
tained a conspicuous position in London
society by dine of mere wealth was ex
tremely small. Successful stock brokers,
colonial cicesi, financiers, and specula
tors of foreign origin did not then givo,
or aspire to givo, banquets to tho great,
nor did their wives throw open their re
ception rooms to a brilliant company.
Grosveuor Square, Tark L.ne, Bclgrave
Square and Grosvenor Placa, St. James'
Square and Carlton House Terrace were
each of them a species of exclusive
Faubourg Saint Germain. The palaces
of South Kensington were either not in
existence or were tenuted by persons
who were not and did not affect to be of
any great social account. Since then
everything has changed, and the change
has not received tho notice it deserves at
the hands of the liberal managers or the
social critics of the period. It hus not,
however, escaped the uotico of the con
servatives. They have rcoognized the
dtvelopmint of a new social order, and
therefore of a new political force. They
have striven assiduously to enlist its
energies on their side and they have
been far from unsuccessful. It is on old
saying in tho manufacturing districts of
northern England, that when a Metho
dist keeps a carriage ho turns a church
man. There is ccrtiiuly nt the present
time a strong tendency for families,
liberal by birth, intertt, and oecupL
tion, no sooner to have laid securely the
foundation of their fortunes than they
become conservative. Numbers of in
stances mirht Lo mentioned in the
counties of Lancashire and Yorkshire in

Iu ono instance, I had my field glass
with me.au J made carefnl notes of what
took place. The crows had assembled on
Duck island in the Delaware river, and
wero busily engaged in running along
the edges of tho sand bars exposed at
low tide. Lvcry few moments ono of
them Would rise up to a height of fully
fifty feet, carrying a mus3ed iu its beak,
and flying inland to a distance of one
hundred yards, would let the mollusk
fall on tho meadow. Usually the force
of the fall was sufficient to break tbe
shell. Tho crows, as soon as they had
let full their burden, immediately re
turned to the island and bars and gath
ered more mussels. This was continued
until the returning tide mado mussel-
bunting impracticable. Iu no instance
did the crows carry the food they were
gathering by their feet. . There is one
fact with reference to thii habit of the
crows which is, I think, indicative of
greater intelligence than the mere fact of
lifting an object and dropping it in order
to break it. This is, that all the mussels
so dropped were left undisturbed until
tbe returning waters made further fish
ing impracticable, when the birds
hastened to feast on the results of their
intelligent labor. Marvelous as it may
seem, these crows recognize the nature
of tides, and, knowing their time waa
short, made as good use of it as possible.
As the Rev. D'. Bowman was about
ts begin his sermon on last Sunday
evening at Ocean Grove, he remarked:
"Many of yon have never seen me before
and in all probability many of yon will
never see me again." "Amen !" shouted
an enthusiastic brother. The minister
smiled with the congregation. Troy

It is a strange providence, according
to the New Orleans Picsyune, "that
blows down church steeples and lets tha
shot towers stand.".
