THE COTTAGE DOOR.
How sweet the rf-.t that labor vieldd
The humble and the poor,
Wh.'re site the patriarch of the fields
Before his cottage door.
The lark is singing in the sky,
The swallow on the eaves,
And love is beaming in each eye
Beneath the summer leaves'
The air amid his fragrant bowers
Supplies unpurchased health,
And hearts are bounding 'mid the flowers,
More dear to him than wealth.
l'mec like the blessed sunlight, play.
Around his humble cot,
And happy nights and cheerfal day..
Divide his lowly lot.
Oh. happy hearts, to him who still
The ravens when they cry,
Awd makes the lily 'neath the hill.
So glorious to the eye
The trusting patriarch prays to blehs
His labors with increase;
sNh ways are "ways of pleasantnea.,,'
4in 1 all such "paths are peace.
The Game of lemory.
The game of memory as practiced
by the Ojibways and Northern In
dians, has been found profitable,
both for recreation and improve
ment, as a branch of object teach
ing. The Indian chief or teacher
in his rude way, has from twenty to
thirty or more sticks cut, made
sharp or pointed at the larger end,
and split at the top an inch or two.
These sticks are then planted around
in a circle, a short distance from
each other; then various substances
s:t single specimen on each stick at
the top) are distributed around the;
circle in order, beginning on the!!
right hand of the teacher, and pro
ceeding around in the order of
numbers one, two, three, etc.
The Indians, or class, are'then
aUowed to go around the circle
slowly and take a strict and scm
tinizing look at each specimen in
the order of the numbers one, two,
three, and thus around the circle.
This is done silently. The sticks,
or specimens, are then removed and
placed by the teacher, and then the
Slass on going around a second
time, each one in order, is to tell
the teacher, as far as possible, with
out mistake, what specimen is con
tained in stick number one, two,
three, four, five, and so around the
whole circle if possible.
With the Indians, the first speci
nee n will probably be birch bark to
make canoes, the second a little to
bacco, the third the fur of a beaver,
he fourth a bit of calico, the fifth a
leather of a particular bird, the sixth
ii." bone of some sort of fish, and so
<.: different substances, in the dif
rent sticks planted around the
irele. The one who can repeat
without mistake up to the highest
II unber receives the premium or re
a'trd. The consequence is the per
e' ptive faculties are all called into
exercise, and each individual will
soon learn to discriminate so sharp
ly that they will be able to track a
w Af over dry leaves in the forests
a- well as a white manecan track the
on.me animal in the snow.
You will ask how they can do it ?
1 reply that they do it very readily
I y obseavation and sharp inspection
by first noticing a leaf with holes in
it., the middle hole, or holes, a trifle
larger and in ad~vancC of the other
hole, or holes, near the central!
holes. These two holes they know1
by observation, were made by the
toes of the wolf and they imimediatc
vy stick down a leaf by this first leaf
thus marked, andl sekrch for a se
cond, end third and fourth, and so
on, putting a stick at each leaf thus1
marked. By these sticks in a row
they find where the animal drank
at a spring pe'rhaps, and they soon
discover his den among the rocks
or caves near by.
By this mode of sharp inspection
they 1become acquainted with the
habits of the wild animals, and also
gain a knowledge of the different
plants and trees, and turn their
knowledge to good account for their
individual welfare. The writer has
known a scholar by practicing this
exercise, who was enabled to memo
rie a long lesson for a bible class,
and at the recitation, without the
book, repeat it backward as well as
forward, or give any particular
verse called for ; and he trusts that
it may be made available in our
common schools as a recreative and
popular branch of cbject teaching.
