HOW JIM BLANDER SALTED AND

Jim's neighborhood had settled quite a
number of Quakers. From some cause or

Nathan heard of Jim' threats, and very
properly, kept out of his way, hoping that
time would modily Jim' anger. Il eems,
hnuiever. this ; much-to-be desired result did
not take place. One day friend Nathan
wa out riding, and in passing through a
long lane, when about midway, lie espied
Jim entering the other end, Nathan might

at this proceeding. "I will pursue my wy

not permit him to molest me or allow him I

calculations as to the lamb-like qualities of
his adversary were doomed to be disap-
"O ho," thought bullv, as he recosnized
Nathan, "I have him at last. Now I'll
make mince-meat of Shad-belly. I will

"Wilt thou please dismount from thy
horse?" said Jim, seizing the bridle of "No, I y-e-s," shrieked Jirh In a gurg

"Friend James," replied Nathan, "thou
must not molest me, but let me go my way
in peace. Thy better judgement will surely
tell thee that thou can not possibly be ben
efitted by personally injuring me."
"Get down in a moment," thundered
Jim ; "get down, you canting, lying, mis
chief-making, cowardly hypocrite. I'll
drag you down if you don't dismount."
"Friend James, I remonstrate ajSinst
thy proceedings and against thy language,"
replied Nathan. "My religion loaches me

firmly ; "loosen thy hold from the bridle."
"You won't, won't you !" said Jim,
"ihen here goes," and he makes a desperate
plunge to collar the Quaker.
Nathan was on Ins leet in an instant, on
the opposite side of the Irbrse. The Qua
ker, although of much smaller proportions
than his persecutor, was all sinew and
muscle, and his well-knit form denoted both
activity and strength. His wrath was evi
"I' nend James," he implored, "thy per
tinacious persistence in persecuting me is
(annoying; thou must desist, or peradven
ture I may so far forget myself as to do thee
some bodily harm."
"Hy snakes!" said Jim, coming toward
Nathan, "I believe there is fijht enough in
broad-brim to make the affair interesting. I

Suiting the action lo the word, Jim, af-
ter various pugilistic gyrations with his
fists, made a scientific blow at (he nasal
formation of our Quaker friend; but Tom
Hyer couldn't more scientifically have
warded it off. Jim was evidently discon
certed at the il! success of his first attempt
he saw he had undertaken quite as much j
as he was likely to accomplish. Jim, how-
ever, straightened hi nisei I out, and ap-
proached Nathan more cautiously. The
contest began again. JNalhan stood his
ground firmly, and warded off the shower
ot blows skillully, which Jim aimed at
"Friend James " said Nathan, in the
heat ot the contest, "lhis is mere child7
play. It grieves me that thou hast forced
me into resistance, but I must defend my-

will inflict a heavy blow between thine

ing out the suggestion, Aathan struck Jim
a tremendous blow on his, forehead, which
brought him senseless to the ground.
"Now. said Nalhan. "I will teach thee a
lesson, and I hone it will be a wholesome
lesson, too. I will seat mvself astraddle

As the Quaker concluded, Jim began to
show some signs of returning life. The
first impulse of Jim, when he fairly saw
his condition, was to turn Nathan off. He
struggled desperately, but he was in a vice
his effort was unavailing.
"Friend, thou must keep still until I am
done with thee," said Nathan. "I believe
I am an humble instrument in the hands of
Providence to chastise thee, and I trust
when I am done with thee, thou wilt be a
chanced man. Friend James, doeT thee

A struggle now ensued between the two,
but Jim had his match.

by the throat. "I will choke thee into
submission ; thou must answer affirmatively

neighbors as myself, including the Qua
kers." "I promise that?" said Jim: "I'll be

"No I won't, I'll be blasted if I do," an
"Thee had better give in," replied Na
than, "I will check thee again if thee does
not see my grip lightens."
And .Nathan did compress his grip, and
the choking process aain went on. Jim's
face first became distorted, then purple
his tonzue lolled out. and bis eves protru-
ded from their sockets his body writhed
like a dvitif man's. Nathan persisted in I
holding his grip until Jim became entirely
passive, he then relaxed his hold. Jim
was slow in recovering lus speech and his
senses; when he did, he begged Nathan,
ior mercy s sane, 10 release mm.
"When thee will make the promise I
exact Irom thee, I will release thee, but no
sooner," replied Nathan.
Jim saw he was powerless, and that the
Quaker was resolute. lie felt it was no
use to persist in his stubborness,
"1 will give in," he replied, "I will pro-
mise to love my neighbor as myself.:
"Including the Quakers?" insinuated
"Yes, including the Quakers," replied
"Thou mayest arise then, friend James"
answered Nathan, "and 1 trust the lesson
thou hast learned to-day will make a more

Poor Jim was completely numoied; ne

left the scene of his many triumphs and
his late disastrous defeat, and emigrated to
the "far west." The last I heard of him
he was preparing to make another move,
Beinsr pressed for his reason why he again
emigrated, he said a colony of Quakers
were about moving into his neighborhood.
He was under an obligation to love them,
but .he was of the opinion that distance

A-BOLD BOY AND A COWARD,
Two boys were one day going home from
school, w hen on tur-.dng a corner of a street
the bigger of the two called out, "A fight !
a figth ! let's go and see."
"No," said the ether, "let us go home
we have nothing to do with the quarrel, and
may get into mischief."
' You are a coward and afraid to go," said
the other, and off he ran
The younger wont straight home, and in
ihe afternoon went to school as usual, when
the boys laughed at him a great deal for not
going to the fight. But be had learned that
true courage was shown most in bearing
blame w hen it is not deserved, and be ought
lo be afraid of nothing but sin
A few days aft.r. theie boy were all
bathing when one of them got iu lo deep,
and began to drown. The boy were at aid

FRANKLIN AND THE BARBER.
On Doctor Franklin'a arrival at Paris, as
Plenipotentiary from the United Slates, dur- I
ing the Revolution, the king expressed a
wish to see him immediately. As there
was no going lo the Court of France in those
days, without permission of the wigmaker, a
wigmaker, of course, was sent for.
In a few minutes, a richly dressed Mon-
sieur, with his arms folded in a prodigious
muii oi iurs, ami a long sworu oy ni me,
made his appearance. It waa the King's
wigmaker, when a servant in livery, a long
sword by his side, too, and a load of sweet
soented bandboxes, full of "de wig," as he
said, "de superb wig for de great Doctoer

Franklin smiling, replied-thal (he fault
could hardly lie there; for that his hoad I
was made by God Almighty himself, who
was not subject lo err.
Upon this, the wigmaker took in a little, 1
but still oontended that there must be some-
thing the matter with Dr. Franklin's head,
