'I made Mrs. Squills as mad as forty
tho other uij^bt,' euid Squills;'I had
left my lutoh-kcy at home and had to
ring the old lady out of bed.
'I haled to do it, of course,' said
Squills; 'but I could not roost out all
ni^ht on tho door mat, and when .she
catne down she looked the reverse of
rosy, I tell you.'
'It's extraordinary, Mr. Squills, you
can't think of your latch key. Making
me come down night after night*?she
hadu't done it for a year, said Squills,
'waking me out of my Orst sleep, and
catching my death of cold, and blowing
my nose half oil'with the rheumatism.'
'I tried to loot as sorry as if she had
lost her latch-key,and kuockod uie out
of bed instead,'said Squills.
'Never miud, Ma*. Squills; only wait
till dear buby catches the consumption,
and then you'll wish you'd never seen a
latch key, perhaps.'
'Catches what, my .sweet love?'
'Consumption, Mr. Squills. Latch
keys have brought more blessed babies
to their latter ends than you dream of,
Mr Squills, and I only hope my note
won't Strike into hairy's lungs and carry
her off, that's ull.'
'I hope she would not be abducted in
that way,' said Squills, 'and then 1 saw
L was iu dor it. So, when I got upstairs,
L pulled uH my coat and boots, put on
my dressing go./en,.lighted my pipe, drew
my ohair up toitihc *fire, and sat down to

4; now, Mr. Squills, that my mother isn't
<hat kind of a womau ; yon can't shy
cold potatoes at her with impunity, and
what's more you s au't.'
'Nor roast mutton either,' I said.
'My family wasn't laised on cold pota !

You know you might as well set her

that's not cruel enough, you want me to

you dare to say 'let her rip V
'I tried to put in here nnd explain,'
said Squills, 'that I was only gelling off

didn't mean anything personal, but it
wasn't of any use. She had got her

And she shan't eat it. sir. No, sir ; not
if I die for it the next instant, Squills,
She shall have a can of oysters aud a
box of sardines all to her dear old self
in the kitchen and I'd like to boo you
throw a clod potato at her.'
'This kind of argument was titans wer
able,' said Squills, 'so I Hat and smoked
my pipe and she subsided. Just as I
was gettiug into bed, sho looked up and
said, 'Mr. Squills, dou't forget to b jit

'The next day, (1 don't know where
it came from) but thcro was a turkey

STHANOE 8*0 BN ES OF DEVASTATION IN
Mr. W. Ii. Trench, writing to tho
liOtidon Times to appeal to the eharila
ble lor aid for some uiifortuqate families,
gives this account of the burstiug of an
Irish hog. He save ;
'1 have just returned from inspecting
one of the most pitiful Sectios of the
wort it has been my fate to witness since
I saw the remains of the village of Visp,
in the llhnnc Valley, Switzerland, after
its destruction by flood some years
'The scene to whieh I'refer is the
result of the bursting of r boir, situated
about three miles cast ol the town of
Duinnnrc, in the northern part of Gal
way county. Heretofore this bog was
connected with the Dun more Uiver, at
Dunnmro, by a small si ream called the
florrnbel Hivcr fit wing through aeon
tinnation of pasture aud tillage lan Is in
its course. Tin; level of the upper sur
fare of the bog was formerly 2C0 fe-t
above-the sen, and that of the water at
Duumore D.'O feet, showing a fall of 70
feet. Fp to a fortnight ago this bog
presented the tiMiul appearance of most
of our undruihed Dish bog)?, i. o , its
skirts, adjoining the arable land, consist
iug of high turf banks, being exceeding
1y wet and spongy.
'Oil the first of Qet?bcr tho farmer
occupying a farm ou the Corrabal streun
uonr the bog wns"digging his potatoes,
when lie su Idctily ubserved it brown mass
.slowly approaching him He left his
spade iu the gr?roiid, and wont for the
neighbors; on his return tho uns (w.hidh ;

from sight h\> field of corn, with the ex
,..r.:.jn lew st rVaka situated on a
knoll; they still retuain an island in the
middle of a stci'C of desolation. This
was but the commencement, id nee then

?down the valley tn Duuniora. bu yin ; j
on its way three rarin ho i<os. and o ?ver
ing at least one hundred and eighty j
acres of pasture and arable lau I to a
depth in some places ol'six feet. The j
unfortunate ocMipiers of tho three farms i
have beeu turned, by this visitation of j
I'rovideiioe, farmless and homeless, with
their families, on lite world.
'At Dunmoiv a small bridge has been
removed, near the junction of the (jor
rabel strwaui W4tll the Duuiuoru Kivcr
to afford relief to tlie lands up the val
ley, and n bog-hideu torrent is being dis
ulvargcd into the latter river. The
worst may be said to bo over, but the
discharging powers of that river will be
materially affected by this inilttx ol sol
id matter. The source ol this disaster
vresentoTl a wonderful appearance. The
subsidence at the discharging point can
not be less than about 115 feet. The
extent of the bog affected is most clear
ly defined by a series of black 'erev is
>es,' where the upper crust of the bog
has. by the subsidence below, been torn
asunder; The whole assumes the form
of.a era tor half u mile in diameter.
'With considerable difficulty we p:l.)t
ed our way to the c Mitre, whore w ? foun 1
the brown liquid bog boiling out like a
stream of lava and feuding the moving
mass in the valley below. At the point
.where the bug burst, the turf banks
were forced r'ght ovi r and rnuufi on
either side, and assumed somewhat the
appearance of 'moraines.'
'This aud similar disasters to which
this country is liable must bo attributed
to the absence, of a lOmplcta and good
system of arterial draiuago. A .similar
catustiophe occurred two yoara ago, oc
casioned by the backwater of the River t
Suckj near Oiistlereft.'

one upon the arm, between the elbotf

frigbteiicd, as you may imagine, an^
were at a loss what antidotes to apply..
We had heard of two mad stones in tho

remedies. The wouud had nearly healed,
aud we were directed t> shave or scrap's
the surface about it slightly, so that the
pus would ooze out, but uot so that the!

the stones, and, strange to relate, it
