The Farmer's Granges*
The farmers of the West tn their new
movements have called their associations
"Grange**" It hi a very expressive, but
more of an Knglish than American
word. It comes front ffntiinnt, a grain,
and its primary signification is probably
that of a granary. Its broader tneaniug
is a farm house and its out-buildings.
Some illustration will show .those two
menuiogs. From tho "Song of the
Sower," SO exquisitely illustrated by the
Appletons, we have.
And from the distant grange there comes
The clatter of the thrasher's flail.
In Milton's Comus;
When for their t.-eming flocks and granges
In wanton dance, they prats* the honntoom

The moalad grange, resides this

about a "shell bark lawyer.'" Ills client

charges," aa shell bark designated,
(forging a uoto of hand and stealing a
horse.) On running his eye over tho
jury he didu't like their looks, so he
prepared an affidavit for continuance
setting forth tho absence of a principal
wituc":. He read it in a whisper to
tho prisoner, who, ihakiog his head,
said: "Sqoiro I can't swear to that
dokyment." "Why 7" Rase it baitit

loud enough to be heard throughout the
room. "What I forge a nute aod steal a

MisH Suit tip's Protege.
Misn Peggy Subtle being in love witb
the minister, and determined therefore
upon the performance of some signal act
of grace, adopted a protege. Sho had
no definite plan of how she should
manage the young idea but she moaut
he should be truitiod after the munncr
of parsons iu general, und Parsou Gunu
iu particular. So, bright and early oue
morning she selected from t\us chari
table institution of the villago a little
boy who was to be the young hcuthou
upon whom she wab to expend her time
oud patience, and thereby secure a i-mull
portiou of the reward she so much
coveted. Proselyting was n hard task
even for the indomitable Miss Suittlo;
but Parson Gunu did such work ivory
day nl his life, and why should not she,
who hoped somo day to be robed in
glory as the parson's wife ? She did
not even kuow the lad's history, nor
hud she any dcsiic to inquire into h.s
disposition or geueral character beyond
the fact thai, be wits a very needy orphan.
'What is your name V she asked at
lust, alter she bud reached her cottage
and ushered the urchin into the kitchen.
Slack what, lad V
'Nuthiu, 'oept Jack, as I knows on.'
'What, no other name than Jack V
'Yes, 'ui, Flip, Squiu, Pony-.'
'Suiuts defend us,' cried the astonish
ed hidy, 'what would the parson say il
he could hear you talk ! You must call
yourself Soittle, alter uic do you heart'
'Then, I'se Jack Subtle, is I V
?Yes. Now, then, suppose sonic b >y
should ask 30U directly what your uame
itsi what would you reply ?'
'I'd ch'*ck him in the snoot, and say
mind y'r bia, will ye.'
'Oh, dour hie, what have I douc to
taku this creature on my hands; hut
then,' she ndJcd after a pau-se, 'he'll
be a cherub when he is converted.'
Jack had uot been nectrstomcd to
family prayers, th it was certain, else he
would not have rolled over so regularly
each lime tlutt he Was told to knee1
down ; and, before many days had
passed, Miss Suittlo found it nocess.ry
to keep one eye. on the young niau, even
while he was itt his devotions.
Jack's place wu? intolerable to him.
He could not understand why ho was
made to lead a life that was so disagree
able, when he had bceu very well con
tented where ho was beloro.
Hut he was inclined to bc-good natur
cd, aud although Miss Suittlo found it
necessary to call in the parson frequent
ly to talk ovor the welfare of bis soul,
he uiight not have been unruly at all
had uot the alternative be n force 1 ut>
ou him. The truth is that Miss Soittle
was so absorbed iu her admiration for
one minister that she thought it would
bo a groat triumph to make another of
Jack, and so she built air custlus that
would have utnascd the young rascal
had he Known of tltOUli
N"V<\ Miss SuittIc did not care a pin
for the hoy, outside of lb-; part he was
to phiy in the furtherance of her scheme.
, aud somehow Jack had found this out.
Children arc wise so-iietimes, and this
youngster knew as well perhaps us the
idlers about the village that her was the
sport of a whim, and that Miss Sntttle's
only feeling for him was one of utility.
Sho said it was lor the glory of God
she was working, but Jack interpreted
her motives dificicutly, aud tho't that it
was to Pursou Ounn he was indebted
for her efforts iu his behulf.
He was sent, ub other children in the
1 place were, to the free nccudoiny ; hut
I in the afternoon he was not permitted
' to play iu the street, us he dearly loved
! to do, or hung ou the ouds of rngous,
as he so much desired. Iu view of the
brilliant career in store for him he must
read ; listen to his cldors (who huppou
ed to bo aged spinsters und iu so.ue de
gree rivals of Miss Sniltlc,) and repeat
? hymn for the amusement of any
ohanco visitor. To lurthcr instruct the
child in the duties of his futuro calling,
his patron made him a gurpliuc and
white gown, such us the choir boys iu
great churches w.tr, aud iu order to
deeply impress him with n souse of
reverence, she further added to his un
gainly appearance by making him a
high crown cup of stiff white mublin. In
this coelUme he was bedecked and mado
to mount the stool placed behind thu
piano, and give- out texts aud rcpc.it
torses and roll his eyes skyward, witb
the look, maiden Subtle said, that had
won for Punou Gunu all bu, fame.
'Hut I don't want to be a Gttnti, ma'
am/ Baid Jack, 'nor umhin' olso like
'Hut you shall be, and there's the cod
of it/ and forthwith Mis* Spittle became
unusually vigorous in her devotional
instructions, and made tho luckiois ras
cal prny for bis bouI although under
sentence of immediate death.
Otie day it was so pleasantly warm,
and the bright sunshine looked so in
viting to the eye of the little martyr,
that ho could scarcely keep thorn from
off the window The soow was gono oil
the grouud, and the spring foeling was
asserting itself strongly in tho bosom of
tho child. f?-*i
Snittle didn't think of all this ; ond
while Juck was mentally wishing he had
bcutl born a bird, or even a chicken,
and could not resist pushing up the
window nearest him, she arranged bin
clerical garb, and o-Jerod him to pro
ceed with the lessous of the day.
She did not see tho urchins drawing
near the open gule, or know that as
UtaDj as could get there were stooping
under the window, hearing all that was
going on. Jack did, and hated himself
for the plight he was in. Ho could not
tell her of his audience. . for sho would
then believe he had planned the meet
ing ; nor could he avoid the duty sho
forced Iii (is to perform./ With a bitter
feeling in bis hmrt ho Was compelled to
mount tho stool, rest due hand on tho
piano pulpit, point thc( otht r heaven
ward, give i ut the hy uuj ??nd then hear
her sing, in a nmnotfl jous drawl, the
lines ho had been taught to read.
'1 he youngsters outsid > could stand it
no h tiger. They gnve a ffild whoop and
yell, and run in every direction ; one or
two of the most hardened oties going so
iar us to stick their hfiads tu the duor,
aud ;.sk if Parson Guun'fr.is to hum.
Jack sprang out of tho*window as she
rushed tu tins door ; und, with surplice,
gown and cap, went jjlying down th ?
maia street- of' Vi^v'fige, falldwed by
nil of tlto boys, shouting at the top of
their lungs. As fast as his legs could
?take him he hurried along, surprising
everybody, but scariug nobody half as
much a* himself.
It's Siiittlu'a hoy !' was (he cry.
No, t'ain't j it's her A men!' shouted
a butcher boy, who was passing just
ilieu ; u?d the uews flew from mouth to
mouth, until half the towo w is out on
the sidewalk, lau0h ing over the occur
rence. Even Parson Gunn himself saw
tho curious spectuole, aud rush:d from
the street to hide the laughter he could
'It's Nuittlc's Dominic!'shouted the
mischievous children a< ho pissed.
'Pouiiiiie it, Pony, and don't muddy
your night gown !' screamed* a little
news girls, who joined in the race.
'Hold on to your mansard, Squinty,
when you go under ttier awuitig,' yelled
a hoot black, whoso brushes h id been
kicked into the gutter in the scramble
So awuy thoy all went, pell-mell, mi l
poor ?lack, utterly exhausted, ran along,
obliged, to hear it all, an 1 ui ist heartily
wishing himself back ut the asylum
again. Hut he was followed by such an
army of gamin*, that he was glad to
escape iotu a store aud divest himself of
his uncomfortable adornments.
'It's my preaohin' clothes, sir,' be,
said to the merchant, who stood laugh
ing immoderately beside him, 'but I
cun't take 'em back to Miss Snittle's. 1
guess I'll go to work ut sonn thing else/
And so he did, there and then, and
with Miss Suittle's consent, it is believ
ed, fur she was never u ft or wards heard
to ullude in tiny manner to her unhappy
cxperieucc with her protege, or t? in
quire after his subsequent fate.
Feet vs. Fcoling.?"iimikiug in a
Tair of Boots".
Otic of the most irritating temper
spoiling conflicts into which fashion
pushes pour civilized men and women,
is, I hare lately discovered, that which
rages between the fect and the fellings.
Tho opinion seems to bo settled that
small lei t arc handsomer than large
ones. Ol course we ?rc not yet debased
to the Chinese standard, but only tend
ing tu it, BO that those individuals who
have naturally the smallest feet in pro
portion to their size and si it urn arc for
tunate. Perhaps no fault can bo found
with this opiniou in point of artistic
taste. At any rate fashion has asserted
it as a maiiin, and that is sulficiout for
our pp'toot purpose for jUBt hore comes
pi the difficulty. Those unfortunite
I human-; wlro, on arriving at years of
I discretion, are dissatis?ed with the size
of their pedal extrcmctiea, incontinently
full back on that hoary artifico of a fool
ish world which persuades them that if
the feet aro not small, the defect may be
partly overcome by making them look
small by some device. Tho device
constitutes, now-a-days, tho shoemaker's
art aud mystery, whiob art this view of
tho matter, may be said to have made
great at rides.
I*' you order a pair of boots, I can
describe your experience beforehand.
You go and have your measure taken.
The man on the bench Is anxious to
please, and has the most perfect confi
dence. You explain to him that, your
feet being tender, you desire an easy
lit. - 'Oh, ccrtalnlyl Of course!' and
down go the figures. After a reason
able time you call for your boots. Thoy
are finished and look handsome enough.
At the shoemaker's suggestion you try
t hem ou ; to speak more exactly, you
try them part way on. Then you arc
compelled to hack off until the obliging
shoemaker, who takes ul! this as n mat
ter of course, had daubed your stocking
with "pulverized sonpstoue or something
similar, and handed you a pair of boot
hooks, over which you bow yourself,
lilting until you are very red in the face.
The mau of leather, who knows his part,
meanwhile gets on bis knees, and fur
ther assists by rubbing vigorously until
at length you have tho exquisite scusa
tion caused by your poor hoels slipping
inside the 'counter.' Then witb two or
three vigorous stamps tho boot is on.
The shoemaker, iu positive glee, rubs it
a little more to make sure there is no
wrinkle, then steps back, casts nu admir
ing gaze, and assures you all is right.
The boots arc a 'splendid fit ;' 'like a
glove';' "like a duck's foot iu the muJV
'Juumct's best French uppers, an I oak
tanned soles j' 'alter they pro hrnlr<?n
they will be easy, and such a fit.' (After
they arc 'broke in^nifud you.)
Your foot, us i? protrudes from your
trowserj, docs certainly appear much
daintier than usual, an 1 although the
joints of vour toes show through Jnum
et's best uppers like little knuckles,you
I? clings are immensely tickled thereby
Unwilling to remove sit elegant a fit, or
doubting your ability to put them ou
again unaided, you decide to wear the.m.
homo, thus getting them panly 'broke
iu.' b'o you wrap tho old pair iu a
piece of brown pr.pcr and tuke your
departure, indulging in pleosaut fancies
of the effect such dainty ioather must
have on the susceptibilities of Maria
But before you reach home your feel
ing have had their day, and your feet
begin to assert themselves You dis
cover th?f, they aeho badly, in fact,
are partly bcuuinbed, 80 that thoy feel
like wookuu feet, or like a tooth which
the dentist has 'wedged.' This toten
siQes each minute., ankwhon you finally
limp into your own friondly room tho
'lino' bouts come off iu a hurry and go
slam, into the closet. They flattered
your feelings, but oh, how they hurt
After a dozoa or moro such experi
ences you began to philosophize upon
the matter, and end by uttering the
following aphorisms :
1. Never 'breike in' boots or shoes.
If they are not easy when new, don't
take them, lor the boots will break your
feet oftener than your fcjt will brake
! the boots.
2. If y m go bn 'breaking iu' boot
leather, you will no.-d a special last
-jade with all sorts of knibs anJ protu
berances to correspoqd with your dis
torted joints. Then you will be sorry.
3. If you hive large feet, admit it iu
all honesty, and have your boots made
accordingly. Then you will be happy.
Fight Between a Whale and a Sea
The lollowiug description of an on
counter betwco.i a whale and a sea
serpent is extracted from an afhdtvit of
a Captain West, of Hallowell, Maine:
About 6 o'clock in the aftoruoon ('ape
Ann bearing west southwest about two
leagues, steering a course north north
east, saw directly ahead, distant about
three filths of a mile, un object whiob I
have uo doubt was the sou serpent so
olleu mention.-d by others engaged with
a whale that was endeavoring to elude
the attack. The serpeut threw up his
tail from twenty-five to thirty feet io %
|M rpeuiicular direction, striking the
whale with tremendous blows rapidly
repeated, which were distinctly heard,
nnd.very loud, for two or throe minutes.
Thny then both disappeared for several
minutes, moving in a west southwest
direclioo, when thoy rcappoared inshore
of us. and about under tho sun, the re
flection of which was so strong as to
prevent our seeiug so distiuctly as be
fore, when the tremendous blows were
repeated and as clearly heard as before.
They then went down again for a short
lime, aud again came up to the surface
under our larboard quarter, tho whale
appearing first aud tho scrpeut in pur-,
suit. Hero our view was very fair. The
serpent shot up bis tail through the
water to tho height before mentiuued,
which he held out of the witer some
time waving it in the air, and
at tho same time, while his tail
remained iu this position raised bis h cud
rather leisurely, fifteeu or twenty-feet,
as if taking a view of the surface of the
sea. After remaining in this situation
a short time he again sunk into the wat
er, disappeared, and was not afterwards
seen by any on board. The scrpeui'o
body was larger, in my opinion, than the
mast of any ship I ever saw, his tail
appeared very ragge 1 and rough, and
was shaped something like an eel's, and
his head like that or a lau 1 scrpeut's
l?eing well acquainted with whaling, I
think tho whilo Wit endeavoring to
escape, as he spoute 1 but once at a time
on coming to the surface. The whale's
buck was distinctly seen, as well as his
spouting, and the last time lie appeared
he went Jowu before the serpent came
up. The above was seen by all on board
amounting lo fifteen or eighteen persons
as well ns myself with the exception of
one woman. During our view th'J co:n

Death of Shack Nasty J ack.
Again are we called upon to perform
the painful duty of announcing the
death of one who, if not altogether love
ly was chief among a fraction of thou
sand spirits who are not yet made per

a idcring his mixed parentage) we should
say half-soled copper colored gentleman,
who recently died peacefully, and in
pieces, in his little lara bed. Jack did
not wray what little drapery he had
about him and lie down to pleasant
dreams, aud his demise was hastened by
a seven-inch shell that entered and ex
ploded in his diaghragm, ruining a de
gostive apparatus that had never been
disturbed by banquets of roist dog, salt
horse, washed down by copious draughts
of fiery untamed benzine and nccdlc-gun
whiskey. As we recall the virtues of
the deceased our pen unconsciously
drifts into the Lsgcr form of mourning,
and wc arc led to exclaim ?
Dearest Shack, thou has left us,
No more horses thou wilt steal*
Hut (was Oilcm that bereut us,
