' 'jThb Punctual Man. Mr. liig-f-gings
was a very punctual man in ail
his transactions through life., He a

industry and punctuality; and at the
advanced age of ninety years mas

jlis pulse grew fainter, and the light
of life seemed just iSiokering in its

" Father, you will jirobably live but a
day or two; is it .not well to namo
your bearers?" "to bo sure, my son,"
said the dying man. " It ia well
thought of, and 1 will do it now!" He
gave the names of six, the usual num.
ber, and sank back exhausted upon
his willow. . A ftleam of thought pass-

tay of light, and he rallied once more.
" Mv son. road me the list. Is the

Oil Smellers. A correspondent
visiting the oil regions has came
across this class of. 'indescribable.'
He try s to picture them and does it
in this strain. " Vx you ever see an
oil smeller,' and can you tell to which
of the three kindoms it belongs? And
