forest stood a group of young- oaks,
maples anl-birche,.bowing low, as the
wind passed by, and gaily fluttering
their fresh leaves'ln the sunshine.
It was in the merry spring time, and
they were all arrayed in delicate suits
of pale green, isome of them fringed,
tasselled and embroidered in the most
fanciful manner imaginable.
Xot content with being simply gay
and glad in the beautiful spring, these
new-comers tossed their grace' til heads
and looked scornfully at the dark ever
greens around ; for the tirs and hem
locks had only a few green bndsin their
hair, and. the pines bad not even these.,
"Look!" cried a gay j-oung birch to
neighbor, the ml maple, "look at
those old Puritan pines in the dull
dresses they have worn all winter! For
niy part, I don't mean to associate with
such stupid, old-fashioned trees. I wish
tliat they didn't live, so near iisj Uow
pretty the"forest would look without
Indeed it would," said the maple,
shaking out her clusters of scarlet flow
ers; but of course they know no better.
They are as old as the hills."
"I don't see how we can practice.our
glees. and choruses with those solemn
pines lor .neighbors!'.' exclaimed .a sil-
v-erleaf imnlar. "Thev will drown all
our voices with, tlieir psalm tunes, fo
thej- sing nothing else.'
So all the new tree. put tlieir heads
together, and agreed to slight the poor
plnei aaroucli a ppsible. .They ridi
culed and vexed, them in every way1.
They .even, coaxed the birds not to build
theirnests in the branches, as they used
to do, telling theui that the little ones
would die for want of sunshine. '
Thus the summer passed by and the
glorious autumn days came, with their
clear skies and bright sunsets, wrapping
the mountains' In purple haze, aud
throwing a softer light into the old for
est. The maples were the first to th row
off their green- summer dresses for more
gorgeous' robes'q'f "scarlet and gold, ami
flameicolor. The oaks followed, with
theirgldwlngcrimson; then' the birched
and poplars and beeches chose different
shades of yellow, varying from straw-
olor to tawn gold. Still the pines
and' hemlocks kept tlieir modest green,
in spite of scornful laughter and un
"Xp,wondcr,"aid the shining beecli
in a tone loud enough for all to hear,
itliat, they have- been so afraid of the
sunshine all summer. They could not

All these Ihings made the pines feel
very sad, and tlieir song was low aud
mournful; sometime' it sounded like
sobbing; but they never said any harsh
things in return and only seemed to
draw back farther into the shadow. 1
The wind tried, to comfort them by:
praisiug their-sweet music, and he is a
capitiiLjudge,it6 be sure ! But nothing
could .console, them lor the loss of the,
little songsters that used to build their
nests among the swaying branches.
The birds were sorry after it was too
late; for tiiere were no cradles like the
pine-boughs', and the little nestlings
missed the soft lullaby thatalways sung
them to sleep.
By and by the days grew shorter and
the nights colder. 1 he bright colors of
the oaks and maples turned to a dull
brown, and they shivered in their thin
dresses, aud the wind whistled mourn
fully through them. The heavy frosts
grew heavier, aud the dropping of nuts
could be distinctly heard on th"e frozen
At last came a sharper, fiercer blast
than any before, rushing down from the
bleak mountain tops, fllliug the ainvitb
snow-flakes and stripping the Jastleaves
from the proud trees.,
The brave old pines, in their warm,
reen cloaks, felt not the icy breath,
but stretched out glad arms of welcome
to the. fluttering snow-flakes, and an
swered back the rushing winds with
music like the waves of the sea
s they saw the slender maples
shrinking and beudlng before the storm'
that pasted .over tlieir own heads so
lightly, tlieir great, kind hearts were
touched, aud they spread out their
branches, protectlugly, and prayed the,
wind to blow less keenly,
" Forgive us, forgive us !". sobbed thq
repentant trees, "and love us -again
" Love ns again, love us sgain !" eeli-
o:d the pines; and the tall flrs and hem
locks bent down and whispered so ten
derlv that the trembling birches took;
1 1 took courace to look up,
. At last the.pitylng -snowwrapped
tneni 111 its soir white mantle, ana tney
forgot the bitter wind and the cold In
their sound winter sleep.
rhe pines whisper in low tones to
each other, and wait patiently for the
coming of Spring to wake their new-
made friends once more, happy in the
vision of a joy to "come, when the glee
ful music of the rustling leavs shall
blend harmoniously -with the deep tin
dertones of the solemn pines.

A Case of Suspended Animation. A Letter from Gen. Roberts,
U. S. A., to Mr. Bonner, on
. Spbixofiaxd, Mass., Oct. 23,,'72.
JIn. Boxnkr, In the Spring of 186S,
a.'disease broke out among my cavalry
horses at Fort .Sumner, XewMexicd,
that appears to me identical with that
now raging among horses in onr cities,
and in a very few days became an epi
demic. At first it defied all treatment, and
the great majority of horses attacked
by it died. On examining the throats
of the dead horses, I found the lining
membrane of the larynx "highly in
flamed and thickened, and a thick mu
cus puss tilling it, causinguffocation.
L. ordered ail horses on ther flrst-ap-pearance
of the disease, to be thorough
ly rubbed between the lower jaws and
along the larynx down the. neck with
spirits of turpentine, causing a very
severe internal irritation and blister.
I saved every horse thus treated, and
in a very few days entirely broke the
distemper and checked'tbe epidemic.
I do not doubt' that" thousands of
horses where this epidemic prevails, can
be saved by adopting this treatment. It
acts more quickly as a counter-irritant
than any other remedy I know, and re
lieves the fever of the membrane of the
larynx In a very few hours. Besides,
turpentine is always at hand, and can
be more readily applied than any other
counter-irritant. It should be thor
oughly rubbed" in through the hair to
the skin, for a distance of some twelve
on fifteen Inches,- under the jaws and
down the neck of the horse, immediate
ly'over the larynx'. The remedy is se
vere, and makes the skin sore for sever
al weeks, and for an hour causes great
suffering to the hoie. But it- acts
promptly and effectively a'ud in, my
judgment it will be. found tliejbest, and
perhaps the only cure for this fatal mal
ady, causinir such suffering .and loss
among horses throughout the conntryl

The following communcation from hini
received the other day tells the story;
hast night I felt a pain, in my knee,
caused by rheumatism. I got up at 10f
o'clock and took a doe of rheumatism;
medicine prescribed by Dr. Toland, of
Sari Francisco. -There was only one,
dose left, and not at the time thinking;
of the settlement at the bottom of thej
vlal.I took it. Half an hour after, as I,
I was laying in bed with a candle in;
hand reading. I was struck senseless,
and speechless. The candle fell on the'
bed , and I could neither stir nor cry,
out for a second. Luckily the shock"
terminated in time to lei; me put out;
the light, or tho house would have been
consumed. More and stronger convul
sions then followed, and from symp-'
tom'e I knew that I had taken strych
nine. My wife brought some sweet
oil, of which I took two doses. But
great God! what a torment. Convul
sion followed from 11 to 12 o'clock,
when the death throes set in. I felt the
earth give a way, and called my wife
to me. My hands were crossed, but I
could not move them, nor any part of
my body. I bade them all good bye,
and swooned, My wife sent the child
ren for a doctor, and Dr. Kirby came
about 12, and found me yet alive aud
somewhat rational, as the oil had its ef
fect. From then. until G this morning
had spasms every five minutes. I
could not stir hand nor foot,and any at
tempt to turn my head brought a con
vulsion. To tell what Isuflercd is
impossible, and I had given up all
thought of life, but soon 1 began to re-

NEW YORK, Oct. 28th, 1872.
The horse disease is making alarming
progress in tha city, and there is a
marked decrease in the number of hors
es on the streets. The hack stands are
almost deserted, and the cross-town line
cars and stages have 'either suspended
or are making only a only a' couple of
trips a day. Almost every horse on the

Xinth avenue line did.not run a car to
diyl The Tenth" avenue and Ueinrnes"
are running twenty cars out of lifty,
and the Bleecker street line have
several care off." On some lines the
horses are all sick, but on the others th
stoppago of the cars Is necessary to
give rest to the horses unaffected. Sev
cral horses have died, and great alanr)
is felt, as the disease Is becoming more
violent. The situation is grave.
In Brooklyn the disease, hows, no
abatement and, as ia this cltyV'tmsiness
and street travel are severely interr upt
ed. A number 'of deaths have occur"
red. On the.29th the epizootic, may ,now,be
at its worst here; but notwithstanding
there was wide-spread suffering and
numerous fatal cases yesterdayj the dis?
ease is thought by many experienced
horsemen to be on the decline. The
number of dead horses reported yester
day was very large, reaching probably
over two hundred and fifty, and Intel
ligence of more hourly coming in.. Sev
eral of the leading physicians of the
Board of Health say the disease will
probably soon attack man. A few men
in Brooklyn who have worked about
sick horses are said to have the malady.
There Is strong public feeling, against
the continuous working of sick horse1
by many of the railroads. Nothing;
however, has been' 'done to prevent this
inhumanity, but arrests are made of
petty carmen, aud yesterday Philozoo-
ist Bergh had a poor man consigned to
the Toombs for using his animal. Two'
incidents occurred yesterday of horses:
falling dead in harness on the streets
trom overwork. The carrying trade
continues to suffer, and along the docks
piles of freight aud cargoes still remain'
unremoved, and some branches of busi
ness are lit a stand-still. Merchants who,
are under contract to ship flour and
other articles find that they have to pay!
enormous prices for cartage. BroauWayi
is thoroughly packed with pedestrians'
throughout the day. Some of the rail
road lines are compelled to stop to-day,
and.others continue to reduce the num
ber of thelr"trips. A large number of
dealers are announcing tlieir inability
to deliver articles at the homes of the
purchasers. The ferries' are missing
their usual receipts from vehicles, and
and many of the principal marts of
trade have a gloomy appearace. The,
streets present a spectacle of wretched
looking horses dragging terrible over
laden cars aui other articles.
Evening. The horse distemper con
tinues. The number, of fatal cases has.
increased. The deaths were on Satur
day 30, Sunday 54, and on Monday 96.
The Third and Fourth avenue cars
were stopped to-day by President Berghj
of the. Society for the Prevention of
Cruelty to Animals. Few or no cars
were run on "East Broadway, Avenue.sj
A, B, UandD. The seven anitAintli
avenue, or Belt, and the Sixth and
Eighth avenue lines stop their trips at'
Canal street. There is no probability,
of the use of dummy-engines, which'
can hardly be procured before the
horses recover. The stages are begin
ning to run more frequently, and thei
horses are improving.
Hundreds of Custom House'trucks and
other vehicles yet remain unused In thej
streetsbut many laid up last week are
making their appearance, and huge:
breeches are already being made in the
breast-works of cotton bales lining the
piers along West and South streets.
After Dinner Naps.
An excellent aid to digestion is the
comfortable nap after dinner. Many
persons, particularly the middle-aged
and elderly, allow themselves this real
indulgence, and the custom if not car
ried to excess, is by many medical men
considered beneficial rather than other
wise, as by keeping the body in a state
of quietude digestion is promoted and

The Art of Speaking and Writing.
A musician is not accounted an artist
who, although thorowghly versed in
the science of music, knows nothing
practically of the art. It matters very-
little to the listening worIdhow much,
he knows, if he can neither play noe
sing. A man mav taiK or write very
intelligently of picture and sculpture
without the slightest practical skdl in
either branch of performance. So
there are multitudes of men with well-
stored minds, who live without access
to the publie,simpiy they are not ac
complished iu the arts of expression
by penand tongue. These meu havebeen
trained for public life. They have ex-
peeted to obtain a livelihood by public
service. AH their education has been.
shaped to this and, yet they lack just
that one thing which will enable them
to do It.
"iWenlv writers and awkward and
unattractive speakers are turned out of
our colleges every year,almost by thous
ands, whose failure in public life is as
sured from the first, be-cause they have
acquired no nvastery of tlie arts of ex

and inferior mental culture surpass
them in the strife for public favor and
ntluence,by address, and skill.
