An Ohio Cababianca.?Rome, Ohio,
has a genuine Cosabianco.. One day re?
cently a farmer placed his boy, a youth
of twelve, to guard a certain point where
they had been "fighting fire," which
was passing through the woods. The
little fellow did not return home at the
time expected, and search was mado for
him, though he was not found until the
morning of the following day, when his
body was discovered burnt to a crisp.
It is not known how the boy came to
perish in the flames, but the belief is
that his regard for, his father's command
was so great as to induce him to face the
fire until escape was out of the question.
If this theory be the correct one, the
boy should have a monument, and a
high one. Young America, it must be
regretfully admitted, does not supply
muoh of the material for Casabioncas,
and a case so exceptional as that of the
Ohio boy should be made much of, as
showing that such a thing as filial re?
gard still exists.
Taking the Census.?Mrs. Sullivan's
dislike to the census takers brought her
into trouble. She thought she had a
right to have as many children as she
pleased without being bothered by in?
quisitive people wanting to know her
age, condition and other personal mat?
ters. Looking on her house as her castle,
she cast forth the census taker, book,
ink-stand and all, and for this assertion
of her independence, an illiberal and
tyrannical magistrate fined her three
dollars?and we boast of our individual
