MY LITTLE JUG OF WHISKIY.
0, thou wert once. from morn to night, D
My greatest joy, nmy first delight,
And never, never far from sight,

I filled thee full and near me kept, i
And drank thee dry before I slept,

For five long years so near my heatt,
Resolved from thee I'd never part,

Small suim; bit when the year cane round,
Near eighty dollars it was found,

In five year-. aerkon as you will,
Four hundred nigh it cost to fill, E

Finding fault with Masters.-Apprenti
sate very prone to complain about their
asters-to exaggerate the amount of iheir
hor, and lessen the kindness of their em
loyers. They say those things to their
tsociates, whiclt nothing would tempt
en to nention in their presence;-and
-ing friendly to the apprentices, they ad
ied them to pursue certain steps, which
-e ir. direct disobedience to their masters'
ishtes. The best course to pursue is this:
hetever any fatult is to be foutd with a
aster, let it'he made known immediately
him, and the difliculty settled between
te two. For, when wrong feelings be
in to exist in an apprentice, he will not
o careful to please, norhesitate to do his
ork unfaitlhfully-which will soon be no
ced, and give place for severe reprimand.
'hus will the boy's situation he made un
leasant, and the case will be imputed to
is niaster, when in fact it belongs to him
-l1. And what cones ncxt ? Opportuni
es are sottght to leave the employment
ie advice of interested companions are
tlicited and given--and then follows a
ep which will be regretted perhaps
To Apprentices.-The only way for a
[untg man to prepare for usefulness is to
ivote himself to study during his leisure
jurs. First, lie industrious in your busi
--ss. Never complain that you are obli
d to work ; go to it with alacrity and
eerfilness and it will become a habit
at will make you respected by your em
loyer and the community. Make it your
isitness to see to and prtmote his interest:
V taking care of his you learn totake care
your own. Seeontd, be industrious in
3ur situdies. Few persons can complain
r a harder miaster than Franklin's, yet lie
id laid the foundations of his greatness
hile an apprentice. Success depends
at on the anountaf leisure you may have,
it upon the manner in which it is em
Ilams.-It is well known that West
h:alia hams are held in higher repte than"
;vy ahers. This excellence is said to be
wing, tnt to anything pectliar in the
?rk, btt to the ianner of euring the
atms. Thev are smoked in the tipper
.ories or buihing, and the smoke which
from oak or maple chips, is conveyed
y meansof tithes fromi the cellar of the
uilding. Ths passing through the long
mane, the vapor, which smoke generally
olds, is deposited, anml the hams are Ier
retly dry and cool during the process.

Sike upon Sha/ke.-A n A pothecary,
t Newcastle, having a patient lyi'; at
nahis door, sent him a hotile of imedicie.
1d wrote on the haiel, "when taken to
well shaken." Next day, he repaired
his patient's lous;e, and eiquired of the
-rvant who opened the dour, how his
raster was? Servatnt shook his head.

' "Did lie take tie draniuht," 'Yes
