A PEST GIRD.
Km urn Hri.uniN : The '. ('.
Advertiser sonic days ago, in refer
ring to the date lice, suggested "that
the fruit lie covered with pieces of
inosquitn netting to keep olf the
inynnh birds." 3Iy attention was
attracted to one of the largest and
probably the oldest in town, which
bore a large quantity of fine dates.
Of course the mynahs were attract
ed, and day after day I saw the
bunches decrease. 1 saw the item
in the J U. A., and then 1 won
dered how the covering could be ac
complished certainly not with a
ladder, on account of the thorny
branches, widespreading. Possibly
a balloon could be used 1 And I was
also surprised at the item in regard
to silk culture. Now this would be
a fat thing for the mynahs. There
are few caterpillars now, on account
of the erection of houses and the
cultivation of the ground but only
stait the silk-worm business, and
with the fruits many are trying to
raise so successfully (V) how the
poor innocent saucy mynahs will
laugh. It is to be hoped they then
will leave the pigeons in their nests,
and the canary birds in their cages
unmolested, and assist the raisers of
silk worms as they now do the fruit
raisers. The sooner a reward is
offered for the heads of these useless
pests or, better 'till, for their
eggs, which are very nice to cat. n
are the birds and the sooner the
sickening, mawkish scntimenlalityof
a few antiquated "old hens," who
have neither fruits nor pets that these
pirates can have, shall be squelched,
and any and every one be allowed to
decimatc'the sparrow and the mynah
and the sooner we shall have an
abundance of fruits as well as silk
worms and an occasional pigeon,
canary and linnet. An air gun, or
snider parlor rillc is just the thing
to assist the good work, and the
boys can practise with the bow and
arrow. A Has Lus MrxAife.

One of the princes of good cheer
in Norwich, who is not perfectly fa

initials used by the altogether quite
too-too, received from a friend the
other day an invitation to a recep

wiitten the letters II. S. V. P.

meditatively repeated the initials,
"It SV 1 I know what C. O.

his perplexity, that means "Rum

A remarkable case of "insomnia"
dining the past year excited much
interest at Wheeling, West Virginia.
A ship-carpenter, by name Joseph
Saulsbury, had not slept nn hour at
a time, nor more than ten houis in
all, for above three months ; yet ho
represented as "sound and healthy,"
aud worked every day at his trade
with no telaxatioii of vigor. When
these facts first became known it was
suspected that Saulsbury was an im
postor who meicly wished lo gain
notoriety. Two persons were, there
fore, appointed to watch him every
night after his work. Their rcpoit
was that he manifested no desire to
sleep, but spent the night reading
and smoking, and was apparently as
fresh in the motning as though he
had just risen from a sound night's
rest. Several physicians afterward
took it in turn to sit up all night
with Saulsbury and wctequitcata
loss to account for this strange phe
nomenon. More than ninety days af
Saulsbury went to bed he declaicd
that he had lost all desire for repose,
and was never better in his life. 12x.
There fs this difference between
those two temporal blessings, health
and money money is the most en
vied, but the least enjoyed; health
is the most enjoyed, but the least
envied ; and this superiority of the
latter is still more obvious when we
lellect that the poorest man would
not part with health for money, but
that the richest would gladly part
with all his money for health.

many and varied concomitant evlU, to

Twelve months ago I was induced to try
Seigcl's Syrup, and although latlter
sceptical, having tried so many leputcd

days I felt consMciably better, and now
al the end of twelve months (having
continued taking it) I am glad to say
that I am a different being altogether.
It is said of certain pens that they "come
as a boon and a blessing to men" and I
have no rcasou to doubt the truthfulness
of the statement. 1 can truly say, how
ever, that Scigel's Syrup has come as a
"boon and a. blessing" to me. I have re
commended it to several fcllow-suffercrs
