"Yi', fir, thatV so ovury woid of
it ; nud I'll jeft tell you how il was.
Totlicr niyht w had muho fliifjinp at
our linitfp. You know our Sal'n hci'ii
going to the ringing rchool lately, mid
fhe and tho other gnU mid tho young
teller that go hev got fo that they
can rfjuak like hlazes. So inot every
night they meet at somebody's house
Well, tho other night thero was a
whole ere w on 'em nt our house ami they
had a higtimo Such a ecreechin' and
f qualm' mid helUrin' you never heerd
in all your lives. You'd hev thought
by the noiso a whole gang ol tom
cats had brokoloosonnd tackled Squire
Jones' big bull and wor jest bavin'
it hot and heavy. Well, that nr dog
was in tho room whilotbey worbingiir,
nnd ho was the most interested crcetur I
ever saw. He watched 'em bcatin' tjmo
and going through their manoovors,
and 'pared to understand 'cm all as
well as they did. At first they sung
lively tune, you know; and purty
toon, when they got tired of these,
they commenced on psalms and hymns
and othfr jerious things. Tho dog, he
'paired to like these botteriti' he did
tho lively lunci", nnd sot down ns eloo
up to 'em ns he could while they sung.
At last tho gals coaxed Jim lllow
hard to .lnrr 'Old Hundred.' Yon!
know wlutt nn old teat in' b.-uo voice ct,1 tl,nt ,,u? Ui'mlknii will carry
Jim has. When hu commenced, the' Alnlminn, Kloiidn, Illinois, Iowa, Kan

"Xo, blast you, the dog. Dlowlinrd
ho sung away lor awhile, and jest then
he tut tied round and kinder bit hti
"Gosh n mighty I I'lowhard J"
" Xo, you all-fired fool you, the dog,
ol con i so. Then sit. I to the old woman,
' Xnney June,' sea 1, you jest bet your
boots that dog's got somethin' In his
head.' Ami Xuiicy Jane sej she, You
git out I tdinnt do it.' Jest then the
dog picked up somethin' In his mouth
nt:il bolted out ol the room qulckei'ii a
streak. I didn't pay much attention
to it, and nobody elo noticed it.
" When niuwlimil finished, nil tho
gals crowded round him nnd com-
meitccd flatteriu' on him, when Hiul-
dcnly we all heerd n noise. It wn" the
oifiillcsl mixed up tiolxc ever anvbodv
heerd. K very body wan setut nearly
to death. Sis of the gals fainted nway
Into niowliaiil's arms all at once.
They wor hnngin' on to him from all
sides, like stiiug benns onto a pole.
Blou haul t,ot still (or n uiiunll or two,
but II was more liuggin' than ho could
stand, and he wilted light oil' lii scat
onto thu Hour and tried to crawl under
the sofa. Hclorc hu got mnre'ii hi
head and shoulders under, the gals all
came to and caught him by the tcet and
tiled to pull him nut. Illnwlwmi he
hung onto the folndegs mid bclleird
murder; nud the gals fcrceched, mid
some on 'em run around the room nine
teen times inaiuiniiit belnre they could
find anything else to lalul onto.
" I picked up a caudle and rin-hcd
out into the back yard, with two or
three of the spuukicxl men, and whal
do you think that nr intellectual dog

Dutchman was p-iffiug thiough a city
in Vermont, u Yankee ennui up lo him
and said: "Shon, if you treat to the
cidtT, I will Icaiu you a tiick." Shon
agreed. Yank then placed his hand
ugitiii!t a fence and told him to strike
it as hard as he could. Shoo, not
thinking that any harm could helnll
him by doing so, struck n blacksmith'
blow, but instead o( bitting Yank's
hand, the latter jeiking it nway, poor
Shon htruck the lenco board, knocking
it oil. " .Mcin Goti in hiiiiincl !" cried
Shon, " what you makes foolish ? I
knock my hand fT clean up to (he el

what will she say V" Poor Shon was
bound to have revenge; so one day, as
he was pasxiug through n field, be es
pied n man. Going up to him he said :
".Mynheer, I show you one little tilek
for nodding." As there wits no fence
or tree near, Shon put his hand against
Ids mouth mid said, "Slriku yust so
hard as you can." .Mynheer ftruck,
nud Shon pulled nway hN hand nnd
received thu blow on his mouth, mid
was knocked down. Shon jumped up,
his mouth bleeding, and commenced
dancing with pain. "Sherusalem! A

Il is now believed by many, who
have good facilities loi forming a cor

said that the course pursued in thu de-

INTKItNATIONAL CONVENTION PACtflO
An International Commercial Con

to reciprocity treaty between tho Uni

nnd to advocate tho construction of a

and also icsolutioiis calling (or Govern
ment nld for two additional Hues of
railroad across the Continent, In addi

one on n Hue parallel to tho North,
and one on n lino parallel to tho South,
The Convention was composed of about
S00 delegates, including tho lending

Tin: Saiuiatii. Tho longer I ltvo
thu more highly do I estimate tho im
poitnncu nf a pinper observance of the
Christian Sabbnlh, and the more grate
ful do I leel townrd those who take
patua lo Impress n sense ol Its import
ance on tho community. The Lord's
day is thu day on which thu Gospel is
preached ; it Is thu day of public wor
ship throughout tho Christian world,
nud, although wu live lu n reading age,
and in u reading community, yet the
preaching ol thu Gospel Is the form in
which human agency has been and is
still thu most efficaciously employed
lor tho spliltual iiiipiovcmcut of men.
That the poor hud the Gospel preached
lo them, was an evidence of His nils
slou which tho Author of Christianity
Himself proclaimed, mid to the public
worship ol thu Deity, nud tho preach
ing of the Gospel, tho observance of
thu Sabbath is obviously essential.
Lirr a young man observe carefully
n young lady's deportment at homo be

Is she kind mid iudustilous; dots she

mid sisters inn to her with confidence
mid affection in nil their little troubles

n prize worth seeking. Hut it tho op
posite is true, then beware about trust
