dext. "Rcnvolio" In writing for ynu an
analysts of the frog I must confute I hov cop
ied tho whole thing torbattis ad liberating,
from thcvworks of a gelcbraferi Frrnch writer
; on natural history ov the lGtb sentry.
The frog Iz in tho first case, a tadpole, aul
' body and tail, without coming to a head.
lie travel in pond hole?, by a turnpiko,
and 17. acullorated by the activity of his tail,
which wiggles with uncommon limlwrness
and vivacity. By "and by, pretty soon, before
long in a fo'w day, his tail h no more, and
less begin to cmcree from tho outh und of
tho animal, and from tho north end at th
'namo time, may bo seen a disposition tcrhood
-Tn this cautious way tho frog h built, and
' then for the first time in his life begins to
.(git his hood abovo Mat or.
i ' Hiz succeriz now certain, and soon, in
' about five days more, he may bo teen sitting
down on himself hi the side ov tho pond hole,
and looking aftho dinner baskets ov tho cbil
' dren on their way to tho district sehoolhous.
Az the children come more n barer, with a
' club or a chunk of n brickbat in hiz hand to
Ewott him with, he rare on on bis hind lefjs
and enters tho water, bed fust, without open
in tho door.
' Thus the frog dos buziness - for a spoil of a
' time, until he gets to Ira 21, and then his life
is more ramified.
Frogs havo two natures, ground and water,
" and arc as free from sin as an oyster.
I never knu a frog tu hurt CKiiy body who
' paid his honest daw.
I don't rokolckt now whether a frog has
enny before legs or not, if he don't it ain't
enny body's blzzinesa but the frog's.
Their hind legs arc used for refreshments,
but tho rest of nim won't pay for eating.
A frog is the only person th-1 can lire in a
well and not got tired.
The bullfrog is tho boss of the mud puddle,
and has a log to sit on over on the other side
'of the puddle, and talks tu the ret ov the
'the frogs away down in his throat so that yu
can't understand more than half what heeoz;
ho is generally a cross and lazy old devil all
, This is aul thero is worth knowing now
about the frog, eiccpt that they cateli nlzc in
.fly time, and wintt on nothing hut .freezing

charges havo been granted during the year
on individual applications, and these, with
the ordinary discharges and casualitiesare
'"rapidly diminishing tho rejjimdnts, except in

Thos encaged in the construction of the
Central Pacific Railroad have a good deal of

Never having seen or dreamed of such a thing

greatly astonished at seeing the trains run
