How to Tell a Good Teacher.
A gentle-man from Swampvill'e was tell
ing how roant different .occupations he
had attempted*. Among others . he had
tried school teaching.
" How long did- you, teach V\ asked a
- bystander. , ? <
..'Wal, I didn't teach long; tbst is, I
only went to teach."
" Did you -hire ont1?"

Why did you give ?b up?"*.*
" Wal, 1 guvit up for some reason or
nuther. You see, 1 traveled into a dis
trict and inquired for the trustees. Some
body said Mr. Snickles was the man I
wanted to see. So* I found Air. Snickles
-named my object, introducing myself,
and asked him what' he.thought about
Icttin me try my luck with the big boys
and unruly gals in the district. ile
wanted to know if I ,raaly considered
myself capable ; and 1 told him ? wouldn't
mind his asking me a few easy questions
in 'rithmetic -jiud jogruphy, or .showing
my hand-writing. fie' ?aid fro, never
mind, he could tell a good teacher by Ins
" Let mc's?? you walk-'oft a' little
ways,1' says he 'and i can teH -jist as well
if l d heard you examined,' says he.
Ile sofhi thc d?oV as he sp*oke, and J
thought he looked a little skittish; but 1
was conski'rable fcustrated, and walked
on as smart as I knbwed how. He said
he'd tell t-ne when to stop, so I kep' nn
till I thought i'd gone far enough-and
then s'pected s'thing was to pay, and
looked round. Wai, .the door was shel,
and Suicides was. gone !
" Did ) o? go back ?"
" Wal, no-I didn't go back"
"Did you a np Iv for another school ?"
Wal,"no-i did't apply for another
school," said the gentleman from Swamp

Ix A BAITFIX.'-? farmer had occasion
to send his man, who, by thfi way, was a
jolly Dutchman, to the neighboring town
for a barrel of .molasses. The weather
being warm, and the road rough,, and)
the driver, moreover, driving rather fast,
the molasses took a notion to M work,"
as it does generally. But we will let him
tell his own story in Lis own words :
" Veil, I gomed along, and I gomed '
along till I got to de hill vat stand on de
top of dc blacksmit shop, and den, 1
looks around pehind my pung hole, tinks
I, I viii sthop dat ; so I sthops de cart,
and scotches the oxen mit ;t grabble rock,

DIDN'T I??S?- In" the ' year 18G3, a
meeting was held in Lebanon, Indiana,
for the purpose of getting, up a supper
and fair for 'M'ck and wounded soldiers^
.fudge B. being Joyal al! over, was very
active in such matters, and was appointed
chairman of- the-meeting. 'There was
.mite a nunfber of lad tes present. The
business progressed rapidly, aiid as most
of the articles for supper were to be do
nated, the Judge called, in his ludicrous
manner, on those present tb know how
much they could contribute.' Almost
enough was given to complete the arrange
ments, when some one suggested that it
would be necessary to have some mille.'
" Oh, yes," said the'Judge, rising with
great dignity, '.'all young ladies who
give milk will please rise.'1
The vonn" ladies did'nt rise.
Not long cilice a kind-hearted and gen
erous man died, leaving behind a fearful,
jealous, sombre minded wife to mourn
his loss. After the poor man was dead
she began to exhibit signs of repentence.
and acknowledged to her friends that she
had done her poor, dear husband a great
wrong while upon earth. She was ad
vised to visit a medium, and ask his for
giveness, which she did. .The medium
called up thc departed spirit of .the hus
.band, when thc following dialogue took

^ A FIRST .COUSIN'S HOTEL.-A ?rmer
living in the western part ojf Massachu
setts, applied to the proper authorities for
a license to keep a hotel, lt was replied
that he lived on a bye-road, little iravelod,
and where entertainment was seldom
openly asked "for. " I" know it," he an
swered,, "and yet there is considerable
demand for horse feeding and single meals
of victuals." Tfie result was that his ap
plication was granted. He raised bis
.4?f n, " Entertainment for man and beast,"
??id from that hour his traffic fell off. In
rtw,o years time he disappeared from the
Jist,ojf landlords of the country, and the
sign ,was removed.
,Our?nformant asked him, "What in
;the name.of common sense induced him
to ask for a license?" "I had roost ex
.eel lent reasons for the application. Before
J raised my sign I had loL-> of cousins,

afford them food for thought :
A man- long noted for intemperate'
habits was induced by the Rev. John
Abbott to sign the - pledge 'HnTiisown

Mr. Abbott. . :.
j "Yes," replied he, " if I can do it in
my own way ;" and accordingly he signed
the pledge for nine hundred and ninety
nine years, "and if," said he, "I live to
.that time, I intend to take out a life lease."
A few days after he called'on the tavern
keeper, who welcomed him back to his
,old haunt. ' * ' ?
? Oh, landlord," said he, as if in pain,
" I have such a lump on my side !''
"That's because you have stopp?e!

" WiM drink take the lump away ?".

"HE SHOT ALL BUT ME !"-Wb?p Gen.
Braxton Bragg commanded the arrfiy
of Tennessee, one day, while on the
march, he suddenly came upon one of
the "ragged," butternut fraternity, who
was just ihen busily1 engaged in plunder-"
mg a garden. The General drew up,
and .in that clear,* ringing voice, which
once heard on the field of battle is not
readily forgotten, called out, "To what'
command do you belbng?" Butternut
was caught ; he recognized the General,
and he knew, the man he bad to deal with.
Assuming a 'green, gawky manner, he
answered as follows: "Minter, I did ba
long to Mr. Bragg's company, but he
shot all but me!"
This was a little too much, and draw
ing his hat over his eyes and compressing '
his lips, the General rode on, and let the
last nun of his " company" live. .
