The Printer's Devil, and His Love.
A printer's dovil was pierced intheheart
With tho charms of a little miss ;
Quoth he to the lass, '*my dear, ere wc
Let us seal our love with a kiss."
The maiden replied, as the imp she eyed:
44 Dost think that I'll let yon revel
Where others before have vainly tried ?
No, ho I m not kins the devil.1'
Years rolled along, and tho sweet little lass
Became an old sorrowful maid ;
Sh? livod Uko H queen-was rieh, but alas!
Her beauty had all decaved.
Once ag>dn thev met,' and the old maid

But he gaily smiled, and only replied,

Fences and Fence Law.
For several years past the question
of fences has been often discussed by
the agricultural press, without having
resulted in any practical move, one
way or the other. The advocates ol
a "no fence law" have al ways-met a
stumbling block in the inexpediency
of making such a law operative
throughout the State. Sometime since
we had an opportunity to see the
" no fence" law in practical operation
in several counties of Virginia, and
were astonished at the unanimity ol
feeling of the'people in hoping that
'.ni? law might never be repealed. In
other sections it seems that it does
not work so well, where numbers ol
small land owners depend upon pas
turing cows upon the highways and
waste lands. We confess that this
knotty problem will be difficult to
solve in a manner satisfactory to all
the farming community ; but for our
selves, waiving all the points brought
by intelligent farmers of Virginia
against establishing such a law, we
would merely consider the great in
fluence the abolition of fences in cer
tain sections of our State would have
upon improving our system of agri
culture. The most fertile and rich
est farming districts of Europe have
no fences. Still more cattle is kept
there than in the same area of tut
best agricultural sections of the Uni
ted States. There, necessity never
existed to enclose one's land against
the depredatio ;s of his neighbor's
stock. There, each person is respon
sible for damages caused by his cat
tle ; and if a law of trespass exisis
herc against man, it seems that one
against beasts should certainly be in
force. With no fences, cattle could
receive more attention and become
more profitable to our farmers. Ol
necessity cattle would have to be fed
upon crops grown for that purpose.
The soiling system would naturally
be the result of this, and we may
safely say that where this system is
practiced, lands are brought to a state
of fertility unknown elsewhere. With
soiling cattle vast amounts of stable
manure are produced, and as atten
tion is paid to this requisite of good
farming, so will success and profit be
Herewith we give the outlines ol
the Virginia fence law, and would ask
its careful perusal by our Southei n

the Protection of Crops. Passed

A Brave Man.
Marshal McMahon, Duke of Ma
genta, has just done what no other
officer*in all France cared or dared to
do ; he has fully, freely and frankly
vindicated the honor of Napoleon
III. The world knew before that
Marshal McMahon was heroic ; to-day
he is regarded as the most chivalrous
man in Europe. What Duciot failed
jtcfdo ? what the newspapers failed to
do ; what all the other marshals and
generals failed to do, McMahon has
*aone in his blunt soldierly way
American readers have not forgotten
yet the peculiar features of that un
accountable campaign which culmina
ted at Sedan, and which cost the Em
peror his Empire and his throne. He
alone of all men received the blame,
and went away, into.t exile preserving
a silence, which, while ifcwas sorrow
ful and dignified, in no manner seem
ed to seek other victims than himself
upaX Which -to casji ihe ;*fer?rijb;le,,?jed
ponsibi?ities of the overthrow.. jSorne
pity rnurt?t have' still remained lin
French "heat ts, even then, if- the truth
had been known, and if the true re
terijns between STspofom ac d ids ar- J
ny had been understood by the peo
>le. Gen.. Wimpffen, the signer of
he terms of capitulation, should cer-~
ainly have known better when he
leclared that the Emperor prevented
i sortie which might ?h H ve preserved
:he bulk of the armv, and com
manded an unconditional surrender.
McMahon, however, tells the whole
truth. In his testimony before the
committee on the conduct of the war,
he declares on his oath that he alone
is responsible to the country for the
march from Chalons to Sedan; that
by his orders alone the army march
ed t that the Emperor in no way
whatever interfered with his plans,
or those of the other commanders ;
that from the first he, McMahon, had
been left free to manage the army.:in
his own way-the mo3t the Emperor
ever attempting to do consisted of
suggestions and recommendations ;
that he always received the Empe
ror's cordial support; and that during
his entire connection with the army
he was actuated by but one motive
that of devotion to France at the sac
rifice of everything else-his throne,
his family, the hopes of his dynasty,
and his own personal safety. The
Marshal continues by saying'that his
army deceived him. He thought it
could make eighteen miles a day,
while it only made ten, and that to
this cause alone should the disaster
be attributed. Had it b- en other
wise, and had he succeeded in obtain
ing such marching results as he had
.i right to expect, a junction would
have been made with Bazaine and
the issue might have been different,
i This statement of McMahon has
; made a profound impression in France.
It was at first attempted to suppress
its full force by the complete silence
of the newspapers ; but the army
took it up and cast it forth broadcast,
commenting upon it in every garri
son, and expressing open and undis
guised sympathy for the fallen Em
peror. Especially was this the case in
the ranks of the Imperial Guard,
who toasted McMahon for his gener
osity, and declared with rather more
emphasis than discretion that one
empire was better than forty repub
lics. Certainly the Marshal has done
the Bonaparte family no harm by
this frank avowal of his, and has
greatly increased the admiration of
all for his own honorable and unsel
Louis NAPOLEON EXPLAINS.-The
following letter addressed to Sir
John Burgoyne, was published in the
English papers of the 11th instant:
WILHELMSHOHE, October 29, 1870.
My Dear Sir John :-I have re
ceived your letter, which has given
me great pleasure-first, that it is a
touching proof of your sympathy for
me, and also because your '".ame re
calls the happy and glorious time
when our armies fou " t together for
the same cause. You, who are the
Moltke of England, will have under
stood that our disasters arose from
the fact that the Prussians were
ready sooner than we, and that, sc
tospeak, they surprised usina shame
ful state of disorganiztion.
The offensive having become impos
sible, I resolved to put myself on the
defensive ; but, hindered by political
considerations, a retreat was retarded
and soon became impossible. Return
ing to Chalons, I had wished to lead
the last army that remained to us tc
Paris ; but again political considera
tions forced us to make that most
imprudent and little strategical march
which ended by the disaster of Se
dan. See in a few words the unhap
py campaign of 1870. I think it
right to offer you these explanations,
because I wish to retain your esteem.
In thanking you for your kind re
membrance, I renew to you the as
surance of my warmest regards.

A LARGE APPETITE.-Tue Marys
ville (Cal.) Appeal, of May 21, is "re
sponsible for the following :
"Can I get my dinner here, ?ir?"
said along, lean, hungry-lookingnpec
imen of humanity, stepping uo to thc
bar of the Merchante Hotel, yes
"Yes, I reckon," responded "the
General," who happened to be be
hind the counter.
We looked at the applicant. He
had broad hips. He had hollow, long
jaws. He wore a hollow stomach.
In fact, he was not full-chested. He
looked like a dangerous cu-tomer,
where unprotected food was left ly
ing around loose. He entered the
dining room and called for a porter
house steak. He got it ; also, pota
toes, bread, soup, vegetables, pie, cof
fee, andr sundry other things. By
and by the table was cleared, and he
then ordered a mutton- chop. . This,
with the trimmings, vani'Iied also.
Then he called for a pork chop. He
got it, and into.the cavernous recenses
of that India rubber stomach it dis
appeared also. The waiter sat down,
completely exhausted. The cook wept.

Culture of Bulbs.
You who havo never tried this kind
>f floriculture should by all means
invest a small sum in some of our
moat beautiful varieties of flowers.
Florists ?ire now offering these bulbs
30 cheaply that any one who can af
ford to spend anything for flowers
can certainly well afford these. A
dollar's worth of tulip bulbs will do
for a start; once planted according to
directions they will increase rapidly,
nit only hy bulb, but with little
care the seeds may also be propa
Lilies in endless varieties can also
be well afforded ; these as well as tu
lips require little care and will so
richly repay the cultivator that I
consider them indispensable o a
flower yard; garden or bed. They
raise their stalks of bloom with a
majesty and glory no other flower
can assume, at the same time hoi'J us
spell bound by their perfume. The
white lily is emblematic of all that is
pure and lovely.
Hyacinths too are valu ble; grown
carefully in pots they will afford beau
tiful flowers for the sitting room du
ring winter's coldest months, and in
beds or borders are very fine. All
the common varieties of bulbous
plants can be easily grown by the
inexperienced. I always like to watch
the success of others before investing
in new and highly priced varieties.
C>r. Iowa Homestead.
We have a strange story of a
miracle in St. Louis, which we are
rather anxious about. Three physi
cians, over their own names, aver
that they had given up the case of a
young German girl suffering from a
liver disease as hopeless, and had
left her to die. She was a Catholic,
and the priest was called in and ad
ministered the last rites of the
church. Her death was momentarily
expected, when she fell into a gentle
slumber. She awoke from it in the
morning perfectly well, and walked
forth as strong as she had ever been
before. The physicians who had
been attending were sent for, and
after an examination pronounced her
to be in the enjoyment of full health.
Her story is, that on the night in
question, after she had been given up
and received the last sacrament, the
Virgin Mary appeared to her in a
vision and asked her if she desired to
live, assuring her that if she would
devote her life to the service of the
church she " should be made whole."
She made a solemn promise that she
would do so after the death of her
mother. The Virgin then disappear
ed, and when she awoke she was
strong and well.
Ingratitude to Pareuts.
There is a proverb that " a father
can more easily maintain six chil
. dren, than six children one father."
Luther relates this story :
There was once n father who gave
. up everything to his children-his
: house, his fielas and goods-and ex
1 pected that for this his children
. would support him. But after he
had been some time with his son, the
latter grew tired of him, " Father, I
1 have had a son born to me this
night, and here, where your arm
. chair stands, the cradle must come ;
? will you not, perhaps, go to my broth
1 er, who has a larger room ?"
1 After he had been sometime with
. the second son, he also grew tired ol
; him, and said, " Father, you like a
warm room, and that hurts my head
Won't you go to my brother the ba
ker?" The father went and after he
- h id been some time with the third
i son, he also found him troublesome
. .md said to him, " Father, the people
' run in and out here all day, as if it
' were a pigeon-house, and you cannot
have your noonday sleep; would
you not be better off at my sislei
Kate's, near the town wall?"
The old man remarked how thc
; wind blew, and said to himself
" Yes, I will do so ; I will go and
try it with my daughter. Women
have softer hearts." But after ht
had spent some time with his daugh
ter, she grew weary of him, and said
she was always sn fearful when lu i
father went to ciiurch or anywhere
else, and was obliged to descend thc
steep stairs, and at her sister Eliza
beth's there were no stairs to descend,
as she lived on the ground floor.
For the sake of peace the old man
assented, and went to his other
daughter. But after some time she
too was tired .of him. and Lol.I him by
a third person that her house near
the water was too damp for a man
who suffered with gout, and her sis
ter, the gruve-digge 'a wife, at St.
John's, had much drier lodgings.
The old man himself thought ?he
was right, and went outside the gate
tn his youngest daughter, Helen.
But after he had been three days
with her, her little son said to his
grand-father, "Mother said yester
day to cousin Elizabeth that there
was no better chamber for you than
such a one as father digs." These
words broke tho old mn n's heart, s-n
that; he sank back it) his chair and

This Company Offers (he Following Important Advantages io those
About Effecting laurance ou their Lives:
1st. Insurance at Stock Rates, being from 20 to 30 Per
Cent, less than the Hates charged by Mutual Companies.
2d. Each Policy-holder is regarded as a Stockholder to the
extent of one Annual Premium on his Policy, and will share
in the Profits of the Company to the same extent as a Stock
holder owning an equal amoui.t of the Capital Stock.
3d. Every Policy issued by the Company is non-forfeitable,
and contains a Clause stating its exact Surrender Value.
BEFORE INSURING YOUR LIFE OR ACCEPTING THE AGENCY OF ANY
READ THE FOLLOWING :
A lengthened experience has d< inonstrated that the rates of Premium ordinarily
char^edl})' Life Insurance Companies are Irom twenty-five to thirty per cent, in excess
of what are necessary for a safe and legitimate conduct of the business. In other
words, carefully and prud?ntiy-managcd Companies charging "Mutual" rates have
been able to return to their policyholders from 25 to 30 per cent, of the amount charged
When Life Insurance Companies were first organized, thc reliability of the data
upon which the premiums were constructed had not undergone the test of experience.
It was thought, therefore, no more than common prudence to adopt a scale of premiums
which woulS, in any event, meet all the presumed and unforeseen contingencies of the
As long as the matter was involved in some doubt, it was better to fix the rate too
hi"h than to incur the risk of making it too low ; because, in the former case, the error
could be easily remedied, at least in part, by returning !o the policyholders, at certain
intervals, such portion of the premium charged as was found unnecessary for the
purposes of the business and the complote security of.the Company.
Experience, however, having satisfactorily demonstrated that these rates are exces
sive, what possible excuse can there be for maintaining them ?
Availing themselves of this experience, the Directors and Managers of thc Universal
Life Insurance Company, at i?? organization, adopted a scale of premiums in accor
dance therewith, and which has proved to be fair and adequate, and all that was
necessary ,o meet '.he requirements <.f the business. These premiums are about twenty
five per "cent, lower than those charged by Mutual Companies.
It also appeared, inasmuch as the rates so established were as near as could possibly
be determined fair rates, and noi in excess of what Insurance has previously cost the
Policyholders m Mutual Companies, that auy profits arising from prudent manage
ment' jusllv and properly belonged to the stockholders of the Company, for thc risk
incurred by them in undertaking the business.
Experience has shown that there are sources of profit in the practice of the business
which theory will not admit of being considered as elements in the calculation of the
premiums. These results from a saving in thc mortality of the members of a Com
pany owing to the medical selection ol* good lives, a gain in interest on thc investments
f the Company over .hat assumed in the calculation of its premiums, the profits
derivable from the lapsing and surrender of Policies by the members, and from other
Profits from these sources, in a Company possessed of a capital of 8200,000, and do
in" a fair amount of business, would give to the stockholders dividends largely in ex
cess of what were counted on by the Directors of the Universal at the tune of its
organization. They have, therefore, determined to divide among the policyholders ol
the Company a large part of the profits accruing from the sources named, all of which
have heretofore been divided among thc stockholders.
The plan adopted for such division is as follows : Every person who may hereafter
insure with the Universal will, for the purposes of division, bc treated as a stockhol
der to the extent of one Annual Premium upon his Policy ; and zu ill share in thc profits
of the Company lo precisely the same extent as a Stockholder owing an equal amount
of the capital stock.
Bv this system of Insurance, original with thc Universal, the policyholder secures
the following important advantages :
FlKST. Insurance at the reg ular "Stock'' rates, requiring a primary outlay oj
about twenty lo thirty per cent, less (han thal charged by Mutual Companies, and
which is equivalent to a yearly " dividend" paid in advance ol' that amounkon mutual
rates. This low cost of insurance is worthy of attention. Since its organization this
Company has received in premiums from its policyholders the sum of ?1,517,000. Tc
effect the same amount of insurance in a Mutual Company would have cost them an
initial outlay of $2,000.000. Ly allowing it;- policyholders to retain in their own pos
Mtssion ?hw ?XOMH ot' $183,000, tho Universal has virtually paid them a " dividend ol
$483,000, and paid it, too, in advance, instead of at the end of one or more years, lt
is impossible to find any,example of a Mutual Company furnishing insurance at so
low a cost by returning to its policyholders ?rn equal amount upon similar receipts.
SECOND. Participation in thc legitimate profils of thc Company, upon, apian which
secures to the policyholders thc same treatment which Directors and Stock nolders award
to themselves. Tins system of participation,in connection with the lov "stock" rates
of premium, must necessarily secure lo the policyholders every possible advantage t<
be derived from prudenfcund careful management.
Thc low rates of premium compel economy, and, independent of participation
guarantee to the policylu Idcr his insurance at a rate which is not in excess of the cost
in well managed mutual companies ; while, l>y the proposed plan of participation ii
what may lie considered th.- legitimate f/rofits of the business, the cost will be sti!
Thus bv thc combined advautagi ? arising (rom low slock rate and participation i?
the profits it is confidently believed that the UNIVERSAL LIFE IKS?KANCI
COMPANY offers insurance at i; ? lowest practicable cost.
Those of the existing-Policyholders who desire to participate in the Profil;
under the new Plan can do ?o by making application to the Head Office, or to any o
thc Agents of the Company.
Thc Company is in a sound financial condition.
