CAN I FORGET!
My buried friends, can I forget,
Or must the grave eternal sever?
They linger in my memory yet,
And in my heart they'll live forever.
The- loved me once with love sincere,
And never did their love deceive me;
But often in my conflicts here.
They rallied quickly to relieve me.
I heard them bid the world adieu;
I saw them on the rolling billow ;
Their far-ofi home appeared in view,
While yet they press'd their dying pillow ;
I heard the parting pilgrim tell,
While crossing Jordan's stormy river,
Adieu to earth, for sill is well
Now all is well with me forever,
I fain would weep, but what of tears
No tears of mine could ere recall them;
Nor would I wish that groveling cares
Like mine, should e'er befall them.
They rest in realms of light and love ;
They dwell upon the mount of glory;
They bask in beams of bliss above ;
And shout to tell the pleasing story.
Oh, how I long to join ycur wing.
And range your fields of blooming flowers !
Come, holy watchers, come and bring
A mourner to your blissful bowers.
I'd speed with rapture on my way;
Nor would I pause at Jordan's river;
With songs I'd enter endless day,
And lived with my loved friends forever.
The Discipline of Sorkow. If
the block of marble that lies before
the sculptor was capable of feeling,
bow would it deplore and bemoan
every stroke of the hammer, chip
ping off pieco after piece of sub
stance ! It would deem its lot a pit
table one indeed. And yet that ham
mer and chisel are transforming that
rough and shapeless stone into a form
to life, grace, and beauty fit to adorn
the palace of a King. So it is with
us. Oar characters are like unhewn
blocks of marble, rude, misshapen
comparitively worthless. And God
is sculpturing them into form? of di
vine symmetry and beauty, that may
forever illustrate to the universe the
power of His grace. The heavy
block of adversity and the rasping
cares and petty annoyances of our
daily life, are but different parts of
the same divine and loving process.
And shall we look simply at the ham
mer and chisel, and forget or doubt
the glorifying for which God is using
them 1 Shall we think only of the
chips which the blows of His presence
strike from us, and overlook the iui
mortal characters which the Great
Sculptor is seeking thus to perfect
for his celestial temple.
A Cool Toper. A good anec
dote is told of a man named Bentlv,
a confirmed drinker, who would
never drink w:th a friend or in pul
lie, and always bitterly denied, when
a little overcome, ever tasting liquor.
One day some bad witnesses con
cealed themselves in his room, and
when the liquor was running down
his throat, seized him with his arm
crooked and his mouth open, holding
him fast, asked him with an air of
" Ah, Bently, have we caught you
at last? You never drink, eh"
No one would suppose but that
Peutly would have acknowledged the
f;'ct. Not he; with the most grave
atvd ex ressible face, he calmly, and
in a dignified manner, said:
" Gentlemen, my name is not
But They Didn't. " The woman
of Kansas," in their address demand
ing the right of suffrage, close with
the following assault on their "erring
sisters" of the East: " Whatever,
then, may lie the opinion of fair la
dies who dwell inw ailed Louses iu
our older Eastern States and cities,
who, like the HlSies, neither toil nor
spin, whose fair hands would gather
close their silken apparel at the
thought of touching the homelier
garments of many a heroine of Kan
sas whatever they may s:iy in ref
erence to this question, we, the wo
men of the Sparatan State, declare,
we want to vote." But they didn't.
Birthdays. When girls are
ycung they always look anxiously
forward to and celebrate the anniver
sary of their birthdays with as much
pomp and parade as their parents
wiil permit; but when they get older
they are willing to let them pass un
heeded. Who ever heard of a yonng
lady's celebrating her twenty fifth
birthday ? Nobody; not even in
the days when people lived to be " as
old as Methusaleh,' when a young
lady wasn't considered out of her
" teens" until at least a hundred years
Mr. B. F, Cutter, of Pelham, N.
II., tells a story in the Mirror and
Farmer, of a hog, which though well
fed and apparently healthy, "did not
grow one atom.'' Soon after feeding
him one day, the owner happened to
look iuto his pen, and found tho
trough completely filled with rats,
which at once accounted for the lean
condition of his starving hog.
The following statement of the dis
position thus far of the Agricultural
college land scrip was lately issued
from the ofTice of the secretary of the
interior, at Washington :
" In New Hampshire the proceeds
of lands granted by the acts of 1SG2,
for th encouragement of agriculture
and the mechanic arts, has been ap
plied toward the establishment of an
agricultural and hlechanical depart
ment in Dartmouth college. In Ver
mont, the University at Burlington
has received the benefit of the grant.
Massachusetts has located an AgrU
cultural college at Amherst, separate
from other institutions. Rhode Isl
and has assigned her land scrip to
Brown University, and Connecticut
has given the donation to Yale col
lege. New York has appropriated
the funds of the college land scrip to
the Cornell University; and Rutgers
college, in New Jersey, receives the
benefit of the grant to thai State.
Pennsylvania has an agrieltural
school near Bellefonte, in Center coun
ty, and the annual interest from the
proceeds ofland scrip, until otherwise
ordered, is devoted to this institution.
The State Agricultural college cf
Michigan, established at Lansing in
1855, receives the benefit of the land
grant, and in 18GG had a farm of six
hundred and seventy acres, and more
than one hundred students. Iowa
has a State Agricultural college in
Story county; and in Wisconsin the
State University at Madison receives
the benefit of the grant. Kansas has
an Agricultural college at Manhattan;
Kentucky lus a successful institution
at Lexington, and West Virginia has
just established a college at Morgan
What Is as Inch of Rain?
The lately weekly return of the
British Registrar-General gives the
following interesting information in
respect to rain fall: " Rain fell in
London to the amount of 043 inches,
which is equivalent to forty-three
tuns of rain per acre. The rain fall
during last week varied from thirty
tuns per acre in Edinburgh, to two
hundred and fifteen tuns per acre in
Glasgow. An English acre consists
of G)2T2,C40 sq.iar inches; and an
inch deep of raia on an acre yields
0 272,010 cubic inches of water,
which at 277,274 cubic inches to the
gallon, makes 22,022 5 gallons; and,
as a gallon of distilled water weighs
ten pounds, the rainfall on a acre is
226,225 pounds avoiudrpois; but
2,240 pounds are a tun, and conse
quently an inch deep of rain weighs
100-930 tuns, or nearly one hundred
and one tuns per acre. For every
one hundredth of an inch a tun of
water falls per acre." If any agri
culturist were to try the experiment
of distributing artificially that which
nature so bountifully supplies, he
would soon feel inclined to " rest and

E. W. Nottage, of Los Ange
les has exhibited to the News of that
city a box of dried figs, grown there.
They were taken from the tree.peeled,
dried in the sun, pressed into
small round boxes, similar to those
used for the imported article. The
News thinks they were far superior
to imported figs, and understands
that arrangements are being made to
put up dried figs upon a large scale,
the coming year. Thus by the expe
riments made, another source of rev
enue is opened. The large number
of figi raised in Los Angeles, have
heretofore yielded comparatively
nothing to the producer.
The Sacremento Bee asserts
that in the Alameda and Santa Clara
valleys the farmers have actually
been driven by the ground squirrels
from some of their best lands; that
their settlements, like that of the
prairie-dog extend for miles, each
burrow sheltering from one to six in
mates; and that it would hard'y be
an exaggeration to say that they eat
onefourth of the annual wheat crop.
The Ilcultli or Uo s ana Girls.
A boy romps and laughs, plays at
athletic games, whips tops, runs
races, climbs trecsj leaps and jumpsj
and exercises all his muscles in turn.
He lolls in his chair, and assumes
any attitude he pleases at his desk.
He has from his game a sufficient ap
petite to eat heartily, and out of
school hours he feels Under no re
straint. The girl, on the contrary,
never romps; ruus races, whip tops,
etc. She only sits upright and walks,
thus developing, and sometimes all
but destroying, only one set of rbUs
cles. She cannot shake off for a
moment the feeling of constraint, and
she naturally loses appetite, becomes
languid, faint, and low. The boy
comes into rude contact with those
above, below, and around him. lie
has to endure " chafning," to learn
to " held his own," to fight if need
be. Even in his games his mind has
to be active. He has to think about
the most judicious way of fielding
when Tom is at the wickets, or for
looking out when Dick kicks the
football. This develops his intellect,
and teaches him his place in his own
world. The girl, on the contrary, is
so hedged in with protection, that
she has no power of her own, and
she cannot learn life, for the book is
kept closed to her. Let us at this
moment pause awhile, for memory
recalls to our mind the name and na
ture of mhny a blooming woman
we have admired for their loveliness,
their good sense, their genuiue worth,
and speaking professionally, for their
thorough health fulness. How have
they been brought up? Why al
most invariably in the country, liv
ing with their brothers, and sharing
their sports in femine way riding or
walking, irrespective of dirty lanes;
boating, playing bowls, or croquet,
swinging, lolling under the green
wood tree, eating as much as they
liked, and only under restraint dur
ing the period when they were with
Miss Tuteur or Professor Guitarro.
They have had, perhaps, a single year
at a finishing school to enable tTiem
to break off naturally a few objec
tionable habits, and to part with a
few undersirable acquaintances, and
to pass with ease from the girl to the
woman. When such a one leaves
school she does not think of it as a
place of punishment to be avoided.
She has most probably acquired a
fondness for her music or painting, or,
found sufficient interest in German or
Italian to continue its study. Her
mind with its healthy tone inspoiled
by the incessant worry of school,
seeks for occupation rather than for
inglorious repose. To such a one,
brothers will tell their little adven
tures, arid whether she have beauty
of face or elegance of form, or be in
reality somewhat plain, she is voted
" a brick," and as such takes an
honored place in the domestic archi
cecture. The conclusion to be drawn
from the foregoing remarks is inevit
able viz., that if we wUhJto preserve
the health of our daughters we must
not overwork them. The horseman
does not put a filly to labor at a pe
riod when he would allow her broth
er, of the same age, to be idle in the
field. If we insist on ou r daughters
learning double the number of sub
jects that their brothers do, and in
the same time, We are certain to im
pair their health, and no amount of
doctoring will prevent the catas
trophe. It is all nonsense to imagine
that beauty of face and elegance of
figure depends upon " deportment"
being taught at school. Those who
believe such truth can never bavo
read in Cook's voyages and those of
other men of the graceful charms of
the " savage" women of Owhyee or
have read the pretty couplet in which
Scott described his charming Lady
cf the Lake :
And ne'er did Grecian chisel trace
A nymph, a naiad, rtr a grace,
Of finer form or lovelier face.
What though no rule of courtly grace
To measured rood had trained her pace;
A foot more light, a step more truoj
Ne'er from the health-flower dashed the
dew. Medical Mirror.
Within Bockds. They tell a
story of a young lady of temperate
habits, who was advised by her phy
sician to take ale to fatten her up.
She bought a quart bottle of the arti
cle, and drank a teaspoonful twice a
day in a tumbler of water 5 but find
ing that she was fattening too rapidly,
she reduced the dose one-half, and
thus kept within bounds.

quently referred to the uniform re
lations of courtesy and good will
which have always existed between
the court and bar; the untiring pa
tience and labors bestowed by the
Judge in weighing carefully the right
and wrong his watchful avoidance of
stain upon the judicial ermine; and
the distinguished ability he had
brought to the discharge of his offi
cial duties. In accepting the testi
monial Judge Shattuck said in sub
stance, that this action on the part of
the bar and ofllcers of the court was
entirely Unlocked for, and took him
by surprise; that it would be receiv
ed in the spirit in which it was of
fered; that for the compliment paid
in the address of the speaker present
ing the gift, as well as for the gift
itself, he offered his thanks; adding
that he was not conscious of deserv
ing any such manifestations from the
officers of the court or from the pnb
lic. On the other hand, a refrnsnpr-r
, --J- WW.
of the period of his judicial service
brought to mind many imperfections
or judgment, and many occasions
when he had felt himself inadequate
to the duties required. He said the
speaker had alluded to the arduous
nature of judicial labors, and to the
patience required for their due per.
formance. Upon this point the Judge
said he bad often been deeply im
pressed by the force of a remark at
tributed to Judge Caruthers, of Ten
nessee. when asked how he could en
dure the toil of his position, he re
plied that it was sometimes the
case that all a man had in the world
was at stake in a lawsuit; sometimes
the very subsistence of widows and
orphans was involved in a case in
court; sometimes ft man's life often
a man's liberty, hung upon the de
cision of judge and jury, and for a
judge there was no other alternative
but patience. These views of duty
had often been before his mind, and
if sometimes, through a desire to re
lieve the public expenses incident to
the maintainence of courts, and a
wish to shorten the sittings, he had
lacked patience, and curtailed the la
bors of counsel, it bad rarely been
done without leaving some regret
and a fear that something might
thereby have been done amiss. The
consciousness that he could not bring
to the position the resources, the
strength of patience which it required,
has been so trifling consideration in
his determination to abandon it. Yet
he did not leave it without some re
gret, and his relations with the gen
tlemen of the bar and tmicers of the
court had been pleasant, and if any
thirg had been done well, to the at
torneys and officers it was, in a large
degree, due. "Without able attorneys
and faithful and igilaut officers to
aid him, as courts are constituted, no
Judge could hope to fulfill the duties
of his position. To the attorneys and
officers of the court he wished to re
turn his thanks for their kindness,
courtesy and aid through his whole
term of office, and the good wishes
respecting the future, which the
speaker had expressed, he wished to
reciprocate. This gift he would pre
serve, and he would ever keep alive
gratified recollections of this occasion.
