What excited his suspicions has new
hern ea'isfactotily explained, but he be
gan a careful surveillance of Webster's
movement, and at last come to the con
clusion that he was the murderer of
Patkman. The hospital had been thor
oughly searched by the officers, and
Webster's apartment?, as it wa thought,
clogely scrutinized, but without finding
any traces of the crime. Lit lit fi. Id be
ing pa'i.-tit il in his own mind that the
deed of death was done there- and no
where else, resolved to push the search
at a point hicli the officers had over
looked. Procuring the nncfssary implements,
and putting bis wife on watch to guard
atiaittst interruption, he went to woikone
night and broke a hole through the wall
of the vault which communicated with
the water closet iu llr. Webster's. labora
tory. He discovered there, mutilated
portions of a human body, and giving the
information to the authorities, Tebster
was immediately arrested. The apart
ments of the latter were now examined
by keener eyes, and with most astonish
ing results. Concealed in a tea box
were found other remains evidently be
longing to the same body and in the
furnace among the ashes were a number
of small fragments of bone, and a parti
ally melted gold plate which had once be
longed to a set of false teeth.
On the trial it was proved that Web
eter bad owed Packman money ; that
the statements be bad made in regard to
paying it were false, and that Parkman
had never been seen alive after going
into the hospital. This chain of circum
stantial evidence was riveted by the tes
timony, of Dr Keep, a dentist of Boston,
who swore positively that the gold plate
found in the furnace was made by him
for Dr. Parkman. Everything that
money and family influence could do to
save Webster was done, but notwith

lliylng For S"i377.
To the question often asked young
men as to why th-y do not marry, we
sometimes hear the reply, "I am not
able to support a wife." In one case
in three perhaps this may be so ; but. as
a general thing, the true reply would be,
"I am not able to support the style iu
which I think my wife ought to live."
In this again we see a false view of
marriage a looking to an appearance in
the world, instead of a union with a lov
ivz woman for her own sake. There are
very few men of industrious habits, who
cannot maintain a wife, if they are will
ing to live economically, and without
reference to the opinion of the world.

A Sharp Lstsstiva.
AMadrassehad a monkey which he
was very fond of. The man had occi
sion to go on a journey, and took with,
him money and jewels, and his chum,
the monkey. So.ne roguos determined
to rob him of everything ho had ; ac
cordingly they lay iu wait for him' and
murdered him. Having secured the
money and jewels, they threw the mur
deied man into a dry well, aud haviug
covered it up with twigs and dry leaves,
they went home. The monkey who
was on the top of a tree, saw the whole
of the proceedings, and when the mur
derers departed, he came down and made
tracks for the Tahsildar's bouse, and by
his ct ics and moans attracted the atten
tion of that functionary. Inviting the
Tahsildar, by dumb signs, to follow him,
the monkey went to the well, and point
ed downwards. The Tahsildar thereup
on got men to go down, and of course
tho body was discovered. The monkey
then led the meu to the place where the
jewels and money were buried. He then
took them to the bazaars, and as soon as
he caught sight of one of the murderers
he ran after him, bit him in the leg, and
would not let him go tid he was secured.
In this way all the murderers were
caught. The men it is said, have con
fessed their crime, aud they now stand

Probably all of our little boys and
girls have read about the great herds of
wild horses that are to found in the
south-westeru parts cf the United States,
in Mexico, and South, .America ; aud we
presume most of them think that the
horse is a native of our continent; like
the grizzly bear and the bufT.tlo. J5ul
iu this they are mistaken. The first
horse ever seen on the Ameiican conti
nent were those brought by the Spanish
general Hernando Cortez, when he Lad
come t.i conquer Mexico for the .wp.in;ali

never seen or beard of a horse, and
thought that the mounted soldiers of
Cortez were a sort of fighting demons,
against whom it was useless for mere
mortals to contend. This terror made
them an easy prey to the cruel Spauiards,
who soon reduced them to slavery ; and
by and by when it was too late the
poor Aztecs discovered that the Span-
iards wcro human as well as they ; aud
great was their astonishment when they
found, as they soon iiid, that they them
selves could mount and control these
fleet and wonderful animals.
But although horses wero not native
to our soil and climate, they seemed to
find the rich grasses of our Southern
plains quite to their liking, and it was
not long before they had multiplied
faster than men could find use for them,
aud so liitle colts were left to grow wild
aud shift for themselves, wdiicb it was
i n(,t difficult for them to do iu a warm
climate, with plenty of good pasture all
about them. Now there are great herds,

Toward the middle of Jie Uth century
a poor Arab was travelling in Ahyssin
nia, and finding himself weak and weary
from frttgue be stopped near a grove.
Being in want of fuel, he cut down a
tree which happened to be covered with
dried berries. His meal beiug cooked
and eaten, the traveler discovered that
these half burned beniej were fragrant.
He collected a number of these, and on
their aroma increased to a great extent"
While wondering at this, he accidently
let fall the substance into a can which
contained his scanty supply of water.
Lo, what a miracle ? The almost putrid
liquor was iustantly purified ; be brought
it to his lijis, it was fresh aud agreeable,
and in a moment after the traveler had
so far recvertd his strength and energy
as to be able to resume his journey. The
lu: ky Arab gathered as many berries as
he conM, and having arrived at Adeu,
in Arabia, h:i informed the Mufti of bis
discovery. That worthy dive was an
inveterate opium smoker, who ha-1 been
suffering for years from the influence of
that poisonous drug. Ho tried an infu
sion of roasted berries and was so de
lighted at the recovery of his former-vigor,
that in gratitude to the tree he called
it canuah, w hich in Arab signifies force.
