which trill interest our young readers,
and at the same time Bcrve to confirm
their" regard for the robin, was brought
lo lieht after the fire at the resiucDce ct
Mr. McCallum a woek or two ago. In
a tree near by a robin had built her nest
nnd hatched her brood. The birdlings
were too young to fly, and although the
flumes progressed, and the heat became
more intense, the mother bird refused to
forsake her nest, and perished in her of
forls to protect her little ones from barm.
Tho nest wos afterwards discovered, and
the parent bird wos found with tho little
brood still uuder her, but all were dead
What a wondcrlul instinct had the Crea
.tor bestowed 00 this little creature; that
would impel it thus to saennee its own
life, in a manner so peculiarly painful,
in its eflorts to' shield the helpless little
ones committed to heroSinrge. Surrly
many men and women. might learn a lee
son frdm the martyr bird;

Bengal tigress, the hyena, two bears, and
the tapir, were thrown off, the cages
smashed, and the animals released. Two
other box cars, . containing twenty-six
horses aud ponies, shared the misfortune,
the horses being piled together and upon
each other in utter oonfusion. . Only one
was killed, bowover, and several others
suffered contusions , , ,r;; ,
The. Mobile.: VKutsfef states that the
animals released did no damage to each'

The bear amused himself by ascending
some of the neighboring trees,' and the
tigress roamed about in the neighbor
hood, showing no disposition, however,
to go very far away. They were all re

PRACTICAL HINTS. .
A coating of three parts of lord and
one part josio, applied to farm tools f
iron or iteel, will tffeotually prevent t
from rust. Common nails, heated red
hot, and dropped into cold water, will
clinch , and answer the - purpose of
wrought nails. . The shain comer . of a
common Indian arrow-head flint will ef
fcotually cut glass. . A good wagon-jack
may be made ot boards two or more feet
long. .'Place the board in front of the
wheel, ono eod on the ground, and tha
other just under one of the spokes, close
op to the felloe; then take hold of the
spoke en the opposite side of tbe wheel,
and lift it, at the same plaoing the second
board under tbe axle. - In this way a
loaded wagon may be lifted with ease.
Busty nails may be .drawn from wood
without difficulty by first giving them a
blow hard enough to start them a little;
A gun will not need cleaning for five
years if the muzzle is tightly corked and
