there is aa universal patting upof stoves
preparatory to the winter campaign, aaa
Mtfqiifit?Mya great deal of profanity-ia

work/uptyl hU mark is raado down the
side-of tho, npso.. Haying got his faco
properly marketa, tho victim is ready to
begin titi* cerom?oy? Tho bead of th?

,tho Store, apd.bis wife and the hired girl
takes'ubio?-ox the Other side, in thin
way, tlf?ioaiS i? started from tho wood
1 shod tb ward tho parlor. Going through
tho door, tho; bead of tho family will
carefully swing: ?his side of tho stove
around and jamb his thumb-nail ugninst
the door. This part of tho ceremony is
never'omitted. Having got tho stove
comfortably in placo, tho next thing is
to find Jthe. legs. . Two of these aro left
inside the stove, since tho spring before.
Tho other two must bo hunted after for
twonfcy-flvo minutes. They aro usually
found under>tho ooah Then, the head
Of tho family holds up one side of the
stove while bis wife puts two of tho logs
in placo, nnd next he holds ;ip the other
side while th? two Are fixed, and ono of
the first two falls out. Hythe time the
.-stove is on its legs, he gets reckless, and
takes off lija old coat, regardless of his
linen. Th?n, he gdes Off for tho pipe
and gels a Cinder in his eye. It don't
make any difference how well the pipe
waa put last year, it will bo found a little
too shotf or a little too long. The head
of tho family jams bis hat over his eyes,
and taking a pipe under each arm, goes
to the t?ri-ahop to have it fixed. When
he gp ts back, be steps upon one of the
best parlor chairs to see if the pipe fits,
and bia wife snakes hipa get down, for
fear he will scratch the varnish off from
the hairs with the nails in his boot-heel.
IQ getting down, he will surely step on
the cat, and may thank bis stars if it is
not tho baby! Then he gets an old chair
and climbs to the chimney again, to find
that in cutting the pipe off, the end has
been left too big for the bole in the oh i in -
ney. So he goes to the wood-shed and
splits one side of tho end of thc pipe
with an old axe, and squeezes it in his
hands to make it smaller. Finally, he
gets tho pipe in shape and finds that the
stove does not stand true. Then, him?
self and wife and the hired girl move the
stove tb tue left, and the legs fall out
again. Next, it is to move to tho right.
More difficulty with legs. Moved to the
front a little. Elbow not even with tho
bole,ia the chimney, and he goes to tho
wood-shed after some little blooks. While
putting the blooks under tho legs, the
pipe conies out of the chimney. That
remedied, the elbow keeps tipping over,
to tKo. great alarm of his wife. Head of
,the family gets the dinner-table out, puts
? ino olq chair on it, gets bis wife to hold
toe-cnofr, and balances himself on it to
or^fe?9me nails into the ceiling. Drops
iqe-jbatnmer onto his wife's head. At
last, gota the nail driven, makes a wire
awing to hold the pipe, hammers a little
hero, pulls a little there, takes a long
breath* and announces the ceremony
completed. Job never put up any stoves.
It would have rained his reputation if he

. THE IDLE MAH.-The idle man Is an
annoyance--a nuisance. He is an in?
truder in the busy thoroughfare of every
day lifo. He stands in our path and we
inuot push him contemptuously aside.
Ho ia no advantage to any one. He
annoys busy'men. He makes them un?
happy. He is a cipher in BOC ie ty. He
may bave an income to support him in
idleness, or ho may sponge on his good
natured friends. But in every caso be
ia despised. Young men, form habits
of industry; do something in this busy,
w?de-aw?k?'W?rld. Move about-for the
benefit of mankind, if not for yourself.
Do pot be idle. God's law Ls that by tho
sweat of our brow we shall earn oar
bread. This is a good one, and the
bread ia sweet. Do not be idle. ' 'Min?
