When they all gave up, Pat said, 'Sure,
Ido you see he begins at the other end of

"But how does he get there?' 'Ah,'
said Pat, 'that's your question?can you
answar it yourself?'
A Good One.?A .Son of theKmendd
Isle lately had occasion to visit the city in
his vehicle, and having arrived ;n liis

returning to the place where he hud left
his horso and wagon, he was snrpi isod to

run away with it.
"?S'ure, and did he break the rein?"?

A IVew Music Book in Patent
BY DR. \VM: IIOUSER,
IS the greatest work of the kind ever offered
to the world. It contains 670 pages, and
and more than 700 tunes?Psalms and
Hymn Tunes, Odes and Anthems, Sun,
Temperance, Mora], and Patriotic pieces;
Seoth, Irisn, German, French and other
fine Foreign Tunes. Much new music
never before published; the noble old
tunes that thrilled the hearts of our fathers
and mothers in their youth, and one of
the plainest expositions of the principles
offmusic and of musical composition ever
published. It is specially suited to the
taste of the South and West, (the author
is a (southern man m birth and education,
and all his affinities) and is adapted to the
Day School for children, the Singing
School, the Church Choir of every denomination,
the Missionary and Temperance
Meeting, the proud gala-days of our Republic,
and the social party, where good
and noble should rule the hour.

in such quick succession, and of which
