Tho Little People.
BT J. O. WHITTIEB.
? dreary place wonld bo this earth,
Were thero no little peoplo in it;
The song of life would lose its mirth.
Were there no children to begin it.?
No little forms, like buds to grow,
And make the admiring heart nurronder;
No little hands on breast and brow.
To keep the thrilling love-cord tender.
The sterner Bonis would grow more stern,
Unfeeling nature more inhuman,
And man to stoic coldnoss turn,
And woman would be lees than woman.
Life's .long, indeed, wonld loee its charm,
Wero there no babies to begin it;
A doleful place this world would be.
Were there no little people in it.
A Detroit boy fell the other day
through a hatchway, a distanee of three
stories, but instead of being killed, as he
naturally onght to have been, he was
able to get np and walk off.

A Meriden man returned from the
"club" a few nights ago, got into tho
wrong house, and had jost pulled off bis
boots preparatory to seeking his little
bed, when, the proprietor appeared, and
with some difficulty conducted him home.
When they arrived tho inebriated indi?
vidual was still so befogged that he in?
sisted that his friend (who, by the way,
is a strict temperance mac) should be put
to bed; assured him he would never say
a word about his being "in-tos-ti-ca-tcd;"
pointed out to him the evils of intemper?
ance; depicted the sorrow of his wife if
she should ever know of his condition;
begged him never to touoh another drop
of liquor, and even went so far as to pro?
duce a bill for goods from ono of our
merchants, which he insisted was a tem?
perance pledge, and with tears urged his
friend to sign it, promising to stuud by
him through "thick and thin" if he would
do so. It is needless to say that the tem?
perance man didn't "sign""
An exchange tells us thut "a very small
Wisconsin woman hos added six to the
censuB within a year." If tho husband
ia aware that water will drown a man, it
is strange that he hasn't deducted one
from the census within the same period.
On the 17th of June the bakers of
Berlin had a grand festival, the occasion
being the celebration of tho GOUth anni?
versary of their guild. The affair cost
the bakers $150,000, and guests were
present from all parts of the world.
IOWA NEWS.-"A woman in Gamanchc,
who worked in the harvest field all Sa?
turday, was delivered of kicking and
squalling triplets Saturday night, and
was sitting up to her regular meals Sun?
Since tho late rains out West it is said
that many farmers are picking their corn
in diving bells.
EcoEKTBio.-In one of the Western
States there resided a family consisting
of an old man by the name of Beaver
and his three sons, all of whom were
wicked. They had often laughed to
scorn the advice and entreaties of a
pious, though very eccentric minister,
who resided in the same town. It hap?
pened that ono of tho boys was bitten by
a rattlesnake and was expected to die,
when the minister *vas sent for in great
haste. On arriva* he found the young
man very penitent, and anxious to be
prayed with. The minister knelt down
and prayed in this wise:. "O Lord we
thank thee for rattlesnakes; we thank
theo beoauso a rattlesnake has bitten
him. Wo pray thee to Bend a rattle?
snake to bite John and one to bite Bill.
And, O Lord, send the biggest kind of a
rattlesnake to bito the old man, for
nothing but rattlesnakes will ever bring
the Beaver family to repentance."
SUPEHSTITION.-Some queer customs
carno into play cn tho occasion of Nils?
son's ninrriage. After the wedding
breakfast, as M. and M'me Bouzaud
stepped from the door, a cupful of dry
rice was showered down on their hoads
from a window above, and as the car?
riage drove oil all the old foot coverings
about thu place were thrown utter it.
Ouo enthusiastic gentleman threw a
broom on top of the carriage, and the
crowd shouted themselves into a very
hot and hoarse condition. When the
bridal party reached tho hotel the bride
sang, at the request of her friends, some
of the songs she had learned in this
country, accompanying herself upon the
banjo, which was presented to her while
in New York.
Henry Ward Beecher says "Love
makes a free preacher." Yes, it makes
some of tho preachers too free.
