In Philadelphia, the wholo edition of
a primer was published, containing the
following ludicrous mistake, in conse?
quence of tho omission of tho letter c:

We shall not all die?
But wo shall all be (c")hanged,
In tho twinkling of on eye."
"It's well enough for you to namo
your boy Elias," said Aunt Hepzibah,
but for gracious goodness sake, don't
name him Alias, 'cause the Aliases are
always a outtin' up. bad. Here's Alias
Jones, AUas Brown, Alias Thompson,
Alias One-Eyed Jack, all been took up
for robbin' and stealing'."
It is proposed that everybody?man,
woman and child?plant an elm, oak,
maple or some other good tree on the
ground where ho lives this year, as a
centennial offering to those who may
come after them and sit in the shade of
Tho papaw tree is said to possess tho
curiouH property of rendering exceed?
ingly tender any kind of meat that is
hung amid its branches, and Smith is
very anxious to know what it would cost
to transplant a papaw tree to the back
yard of bin boarding bouse.
Dilemma in England?they cannot
get men for the army, and the Govern?

The cures performed by using Hei
