?ace heard a laboring man swear dread?
fully in the presence of a number of his
companions. He told him it whs coward?
ly to swear so in company. The man
said he was not afraid to swear at any
time or any place.
?'I'll give you ten dollars," said the gen?
tleman, "if you will go into the village
church yard to-?ight at 12 o'clock, and
swear the same oaths which you have ut?
tered here when you are alone with your
God."
"Agreed," said the man, "it is an easy
way of earning ten dollars."
"WeH, you come to me to-morrow, and
say you have done it, and the money is
yours."
Time passed on ; midnight came. The
man went to the grave yard. It was a
sight of pitchy darkness. As he entered
the yard, not a sound was heard?all was
still aa death. Then tho gentleman's
words "alone with God," camo over him
with a wonderful power. Tho thought
of the wickedness ho had committed, and
what he came thero todo.dartod through
his mind like- a fiafih of lightning. He
trembled at his folly. Afraid to tako
another step, be fell on his knees; instead
of the dreadful oaths ho had como to ut?
ter, the earnest cry wont up?
"God be merciful to me a sinner J"
The next day ho went to the gentle?
man an thanked him for what he had
dono, and said she was resolved not to
swear another oath as Ion" as he lived.
?A little boy and girl had been caution?
ed never to take the nest-egg whon gath?
ering the eggs; but one evening the girl
reached the nest first, seized an egg, and
started for tho houso. Her disappointed
brother followed, crying, "Mother! moth?
er! Susy she's been and got tho ogg tho
old hon measures by !"

Josh Billings on the Mule.?The
mule is half horse and half jackass, and
then kums to a full Btop^ natar diskoveriri
her mistake. Tha weigh more; accordin
to their heft, than-any other kreeture ex?
cept a crowbar. Tha kant hear eny
quicker, nor further than the boss, yet
their ears are big enuff for snow shoes.
You ken trust them with enny one whose
life aint worth any more than the mule's..
Tbe only way tu keep them into a paster
is to turn them into a medder jineing, and
lot them jump out. Tha are roady for
use just as soon as they will do to abuse.
Tba haint got enny friends, and will live
on huckleberry brush, with an occasional
chance at Kanada thissels. Tha are a
"modern invention. I don't think tho Bi?
ble eludes to tbem at all.
Tha sell for more money than enny
other domestic aniniile. You kant tell
thoir age bi looking into their mouths,
enny more tban.you kould a Mexican can?
non's. Tha never have no disease that
a good club won't heal. If tha ever die
they must kum right tu life agin fori
never heard anny body sa: "ded mule."
Tha are like sum men, "very corrupt at
harte." I've known tbem tu be good
mules for 6 months, just tu git a chance
to kick somebody. I nover owned one,
nor never meant to, unless there is a Uni?
ted States law passed requiring it. The
only reason why tha are pasbant is be?
cause tha are ashamed ov themselves. I
have seen eddicated mules in. a sirkus.
Tha would kick and bite tremenjis.
Enny man who is willing to drive a
mule ought to be exempt by law from run?
ning, for tbe legislatur. Tha are the
strongest creturs on earth, &ad heaviest
accordin to their size. I herd toll of ono
who fell oph tho tow-path on the Erie
kanawal, and sunk as soon as ho touched
water; but he kept rite on towing the
boat tu the next station, breatbing thru
his ears, which stuck out ov the water
about two feet six inches. I didn't, see
this did, but an auctioneer told of it, and
1 never knew an auctioneer tu tell an
ontruth unless it was absolutely conveni?
ent.
The Town-Clerk of Ephesus? Cotton
Mather often used to say there was a gen?
tleman mentioned in Acts 19 to whom ho
was indebted for some of the best advice
he over received. This person was the
town-clerk of Ephesus, whose counsel was
not to do anything rashly.
So when any matter of consequence
came before Mather, for decision, he was
accustomed.to.say : '-Let us first consult
the town-clerk of Ephesus."
How much more trouble and sorrow
would be avoided if more pepple were to
consult this gentleman ! How many more
things would be done right tho first time,
and not have to bo doneover again ! How
much more joy, and safety, and rest, and
in tho assmanco that wo deliberately well
weighed consequences, waited- the lead?
ings of the Lord, and followed the open
ngs of his providence !.
The hardest le3Son,of many a lifo is that
of waiting. It is easy enough, when all
the world is hurrying, to make quick re?
solves and rash promises; but to pause
while the swift current is sweeping by?
! think, and wait, and pray, and listen for
the low counsel, of that guiding spirit
which whispers to-every Christian heart,
.'"He that believeth shall make haste"?is
no easy task.
Some people are eveT incliued to run be?
fore they are sent. And if tho Lord left
thom to themselves, they would soon fin?
ish their course in ruin. But in mercy
he restrains our wajTs. He shuts us up,
and hedges us about, and entangles our
feet, till we are compelled to stop, and
like prisoned birds that flutter and beat
against thoir cage-bars till in weariness
they fall down and submit, we at length
learn to be quiet, and know moderation,
and be slow in speech, calm in thought,
and terrible in action.
Josh Billings' Philosophy.?I have
heard a grato deal ced about "broken
hartes," and thoro may bo a few ov them
but mi experince iz that next tew tho giz?
zard, the harte is the tuffest peace ov meat
in, tho whole critter.
There iz nothing in this life that will
open tho pores of a man so much az tu
fall in luv ; it makes him az fluent az a tin
whissel, az limber az a boy's watch chain,
and az perlite az a dansing master; his
harlo iz az full ov sunshine az a hay field,
and there ain't any more guilo in him than
there is in a stik ov meslasscs candy
It strains a man's philosophce tho wust
kind tew laff when he gits beat.
Wimmin are like flowers,, a littlo squeez?
ing makes them the raoro fragrant.
Matches may bo made in hcavin but
they are ginarally sold down here.
Musick hath charms tu soothe a savago;
this may bo so, but I would rather tri a
revolver on him fust.
? Every boy should havo his head, his
heart and bis hand educated. Let this
truth never bo forgotten. By the proper
education of the head, he will be taught
what is good and what is evil, what is
wise and what is foolish, what is right
and what is wrong. By tho proper edu?
cation of tbe heart ho will bo taught to
love what is good, wise and right, and to
bate what is evil, foolish and wroDg. And
by tho proper education of .the hand, he
will be enabled to supply his wants, to
add to his comforts, and to assist those
around him. Tho highest objects of a
good education are, to reverence and obey
God, and to love and serve mankind. Ev?
erything that helps us in attaining these
objects is ot great value, and everything
that hinders us is comparativel}' worth?
less. When wisdom reigns in tho head,
and lovo in tho heart, the man is ever
ready to do good ; order and peace reign
around, aud sin and sorrow are almost un?
known.
? A young woman in tho South, during
the war, wrote to Jeff. Davis, saying "I
want yon to let Jeemes Clancy ot Co. I.
5th S. C. regiment, come homo and get
married. Joomos is willin', 1 is willin',
my mammy sho is willin', his mammy
says she is willin', but Jeemes' captain he
ain't willin', now when wo aro all wiliin',
ceptin' Jeemes' captain, I think you
might let up and let Jeemes como. I'll
make him go straight b:;ck when he's
done got married, and fight as hard as
ever." Jeemes was allowed to go home,
married, rejoinod the army, and fought
till tho end
THE BROOK.
I wind about, and in and out,
With here a blossom sailing,
And here and there a lusty t roue,
And here and there a grayling.
And here and there- a foamy flake
Upon me, as I travel,
With many a silvery waterbrook
Above the golden gravel.
And to.draw them all along end- flow
To join the brimming rlvewr
For men may come and men may go,
But I go on forever.

Cure toe a Felon,?A genuine reme?
dy is worth- circulating. It is said that a
poultice of onions, applied morning, noon,
and night, for three or four daya, will core
a felon. No matter how had the case
lancing tho finger will be unnecessary if
the poultice is applied. Tbe remedy is a
sure, safe and speedy one.
-j-?
Preserved Eggs.?Eggs are naturally
designed to last as long as the hen requires
to get her brood, and the life germ can be
preserved a few weeks?seven or eight?
but no longer. The egg itself may be
kept in a preserved state for two years
by greasing with butter, oil or lard, but
from the time it is thus put up to the end
of two years it will daily lose its albumen
by transpiration, and while its carbonic
acid escapes to a certain extent, the egg
meat will be reduced fully two thirds,
and will shake. However, for eulinary
purposes, they will do very well.

'I'll Call Abound and Bat/?What
a world of woo is contained in these few
words to-the poor artizan and mechanic L
1'J)>call round and pay,' says the rich
man, to avoid tho trouble of going to his
desk to get the necessary funds, and the
poor mechanic is-obliged to go homo to
disappoint his- workmen, and all who de?
pend upon him for their due. It is an
easy matter to wort; the only real glory
in this-life is an. independent idea of be?
ing able to-sustain yourself by the labor
of your bands, and it may be easily im?
agined what crushing force there is in I'll
call around and pay,' to the laboring man.
who depends on that pay for subsistence:.
If those who could would pay at once; it
would place hundreds and thousands in a
condition, to do likewise, and would pre?
vent much misery and distress.
? Madder colors red, this is the reason
why tho madder you get the redder you
grow.
? One of the secrets of successful
farming is to sell when others are buy?
ing, and buy when others are selling.
? A little girl attending a party was
asked by her mother bow she enjoyed her?
self. "Oh," said she, "I am full of happi?
ness ; I couldn't be no happier unless I
could grow."
f ? Mr. 0. A. Osborno, of Cairo, has in?
vented a spring to be attached to the feet,
by means of which a person is relieved of
the labor of walking to a great extent.
Ho claims his invention will enable a man
to walk ten miles per hour with ease.
? A young lady took her younger
brother, a little boy of three or four years,
to church. The preacher was an earnest
man, and spoke very loud. During the
sermon she saw the little fellow in tears,
and asked him what was the matter with
him. He sobbed out: "That nlan is hol?
lering at me.".
?A little boy of our city not long since
had beheld somo cxplosivo experiments
with powder among some larger juveniles,
and afterwards understood that his father
had administered to an- elder brother a
powder. "Papa," said tho little fellow,
"Buddio take powder, he shoot off and
blow up!" "Oh, no, my son, the father re
plied,"the*powder will mako Buddie well."
'-Yos he will," persisted tho little hopeful,
"he'll blow up if you totch fire to him!"?
Sumter Republican.
? Greeley, of theNow York Tribune,
gives the carpet-baggers of tho South an?
other hint when he says in a leading edi?
torial "that it is high time that Southern
Eepublicans should desist fron hanging
around the neck of* tho North, and begin
to take care of themselves." The fact is,
these birds of prey aro almost as much
despised at the North as at tho South.
They aro "going under" fast, and the ne?
groes had better cut their acquaintance,
and go with their own Southern people.
The wheel is turning rapidly, and "tho
right" will soon bo on top.
? Th*e true mission of woman lies in
the family, where her very weakness be?
comes a strength, her beauty an attrac?
tion to good, hor soft and winning ways
an enticement to nobleness of purpose
and effort, and her loving sympathies a
solace for the mischances of the strife in',
the outer world. It is when a woman
abandons those her strongholds and un
sexes herself to battle as a man. that she
inflicts a loss upon society and deprives
man of his powerful stimulous. We can
conceive no moro worso form of social or?
ganization than one where unsexed wo?
man would descend from tho high level
upon which Christianity and modem civ?
ilization have ptaeed her and degrade her
finer sympathies by placing them upon a
level with the coarser nature which fits
man for tho battles of tho world.
? There was a man who-lived in CasB
county, Georgia, many years ago, who had
onco been in the State Legislature, and
never neglected an opportunity toempha
sizo tho fact. He was a perfect infidol as
to new discoveries and the new sciencos,
being perfectly satisfisd that if the world
should turn over, all tho water would
spill out of his well; and only giving in
to steam cars by slow degrees. But all
tho vials of his contempt wero pourod out
upon the idea of a telegraph, and ho was
wont to say that nobody need try to come
"the green" over him in that wajr, for ho
had been in tho Legislature. Finally, the
stato road was built; and ono day work?
men began to put up telegraph posts right
in front of his house, and to stretch the
wire. His oxultant neighbors thought
they bad him on that occasion, and asked :
"Woll old follow, what do you think of
telegraphs now ?" He was concerned
but died game. Drawing himself up an
inch tailor, he said, "Gentlemen, when I
was in the Legislature I gav? this uubjoct
my vory attentive consideration; and I
said then, as I say now, that it may do for
letters and small bundles, but it will nev?
er take a cotton bail, never!.'' <
