We each had a gun, and car
ried a conple of spare guns, with plenty
of amunition, so that we could kill as
any wolves as presented themselves.
"Jtttt as we were preparing to start,
Christina asked to accompany us. I
fUgested the coldness of the night,
and Easloff hinted that the sleigh was
too small for three. But Christina
protested that the air, though sharp,
wis clear andetiil, and she could wrap
herself up warmly; a ride of a few
hours would do her more good than
harm. The eleigh, she insisted, was a
large one, and afforded ample room.
Bcidef,'.she added, 'I will sit directly

way,and I want to see a wolf hunt very
"So we . consented. Christina ar
rayed herself in a few moments, and
we started on our excursion.
"The servants were .instructed to
hng out a light in front of the en
trance to' the courtyard. It was
about sunset when we left the chateau
and drove out on the plain, covered
here and there with patches of forest
The road ,wo followed was well trod
den by .many peasants on their way to
the.fctr at the town, twenty-five miles
awayt' We traveled slowly, not wish
ing to tire our horses, and, as we left
the half dozen villages that clustered
around the .chateau, we had the road

seemed to stand out quite distinct from
the dejp blue sky and the bright stars
that sparkled everywhere above the

along. The time passed so rapidly
that I was half surprised when Eas
loff told me to get ready to hunt
"The pig had been Jying very com
fortably in the bottom of the sleigh,
and protested quite loudly as we
brought him out. The rope had been
made ready before we started from
home, and so the most we had to do
was to turn the horses around, get our
guas ready, and throw the pig upon
the ground. He set up a piercing
shriek as the rope dragged him along,
and completely drowned pur voices.

'A few, momenta later I eaw a half
dozen dusky forms emerging to the
right and behind us. They eeemed
like moving spots on the snow, and
had it not been for their howling

early as I did. They grew more and
more numerous, and, as they gathered
behind us, formed a waving mass

numbers were increasing, and it was
somewhat impatiently that I waited

told me to begin, and I fired at the
middle of the pack, The wolf I struck
gave a howl, of pain, and his compan
ions, roused by the smell of blood, fell
upon him and tore him to pieces in a
moment. Easloff fired an instant after
me, and then we kept up our firing as
fast as possible. Bs the wolves fell,
the others sprang upon them, but the'
pack was so large that they were not
materially detained by stopping to eat
up their brethren. They .continued
their-pursuit, and what alarmed me
they came nearer, and showed very
ittle fear of our guns.
"We had taken a large quantity of
amunition more oy half than wo
thought would possibly be needed
but its quantity diminished so rapidly
as to suggest the possibility of exhaus
tion. The pack steadily came nearer'.
We cut away the pig but it stopped
the pursuit only for a moment. Di
rectly behind us the wolves were not
ten yards away; on each side they
were no further from the horses, who
were snorting with fear, and requiring
all the efforts of the driver to hold
them. We shot down the beasts as
fast as possible, and as I saw our dan
ger I whispered my thoughts to Eas

she did not understand, that the eitua-

there is a good deal of risk in it; but
we must think of the girl, but we must
think of the girl and-not let her, sus
pect anything wrong, and, above all,
must not risk her safety.'"
"Turning to. the driver, he said in a
Paul, we have shot till we are
tired out You may let the horses go,
but keep tbem well in control.'"
"While he spoke a huge wolf
sprang from the back and dashed to

followed him, and in twenty seconds
the line was broken and they were
upon us. Une wolt jumped in the
rear of the sleigh and caught iis paws

Harlc Twain's First Experience In
I was a very smartchild ai ;the age
of thirteen, an.unusually smart child,
thought at the time. Jt was then
that I did my first newspaper scrib-
blingvand, most, unexpectedly to me
it stirred up quite a sensation'in the
community, rltdid, indeed, and
was very proudof.it, too; r
I was a printers "devil, and a'pro'
cressive and aspiring one. My uncle7
had me on hia paper (the Weekly

and that paid in cord-wood, cabbages
and unmarbetabic turnips) and on a
lucky summer's day he left town -to be
gone a week, and asked me if I thought
I could edit one issuet of the paper ju
diciously. Ah, didn't I want to try it ?
Hinton was the editor of the rival pa
per. He was lately jilted, and one
night a friend found an open letter in
the poor fellow's bed, in which he
stated that he could no longer endure
life, and had drowned himself in Bear
Creek. The friend ran down there
and discovered Hinton wading back to
the shore. He had concluded he
wouldn't " '""T
The Tillage, was full of it for several
days, but Hinton did not suspect it. I
.thought this was a fine opportunity.- !
wrote an elaborately wretched account
of the whole affair, and then illustrated
it with villainous wood cuts engraved
on the bottom of wood type with a jack
knife, one of them a picture of Hinton
walking out in the creek in his shirt,
with a lantern sounding the depths of
the water with a walking stick.
I thought it was desperately funny,
and was densely unconscious that there
was any moral obliquity about such a
publication. Being satisfied with the
effort, I looked about for other worlds
to conquer, and it strack-jne.thatjt,

Then I -lampooned two prominent
citizens outrageously not because thoy
had done anything to deserved it, but
because I thought it my duty to make
the paper lively.
Next I gently touched up the newest
strangei: the lion of the day, the gor
geous journeyman tailor from Quincey.
He was a simpering coxcomb of the

man in town. He was an inveterate
lady killer. Every week he wrote
sloshy "poetry" for the Journal about
his newest conquest His rhymes for
my weekwere headed, Mary in H ,"
meaning Mary in Hannibal, of course.
But, while setting up the piece, I was
suddenly .riven from head to heel by
what I regarded as a perfect thunder
bolt of humor, and compressed it into
a 6nappy footnote at the bottom thus:

Talk about removing from tha State
to any other in all the wide-boundary
of our country, expecting and hoping
to find a more pleasant and profitable
home! We saw from one of our ex
changes a week or two since, that a
man who 'owned a nice little farm in
one of our blue -grass counties, sold it
and all of his personal estate for'about
$4,600, and withhis wife and five
children, started about a year and a
half ago for Texas, expecting to find
there, according- to representation, &
very iiden. .Last year he returned,
penniless, and only-two children had
survived. His wife and himself had
chills. They had come over half of
the way back on the bounty of charit
able strangers, and he says he. will
never again leave the old State to find
a better home. Tt is very 'straneo that
any one, situated as this man was,
would seek pastures more green or a
better home than our old Common
wealth affords.. It would WweUfbr
them to turn a deaf ear to all such
stories which, promise jt surer reward
for industry and perseverance than is
promised to all who remain in our
State. Let the tide of emigration set
in from the South and West, and not
the cbuntrary direction. We have
room enough for thousands more. Our
fields and -mines. can afford work for
all. Let them come from all quarters
and from the ends of the earth. A
hearty welcome awaits them. Stanford
Toe. practice of buying on credit the
necessary articles of the houshold is
fatal to- good economy. The house
keeper has always to pay dearer when
she does not pay cash. The tradesman

There must be a premium exacted by
the dealer for the risk herons in trust

less dangerous customers who never
pay ready money. Even the most
honestly disposed of these are generally
such as are .imprudent enough to an
ticipate their incomes, and to overrun
them in expenditures. The credit sys
tem, moreover, is a temptation to un
necessary purchases. There is a" sort
of check in tho sight and touch of the
hard won money to the disposition to
dispose of it lightly. On the "other
hand there is something in the facility

agreeable necessity of pay rr ant to a

that the spirit js the man.
Man is formed with certain feesltiee-
fbr receiving good and evQ, and is left
free to form hie life, either from the
one or the other, and as he forms that
life, so he continues to live after hat
leaves his natural body. Man is be
gotten by man, and as like predueeei
like, there are certain natural- attrib
utes, which descend from father to sea,
called hereditary. Every man has tho
power to- either adopt or reject thee
principles, and he is only assw&rable
for the life he-forms and sot that ha
receives from his parents ; he can af
firm or reject good or evil, and as he
docs this so he forms a life separate asd
apart from his hereditary life. As ona
generation overcomes an, evil it La so
much less for. the next, se that in three
or four generations there wQl-be.no-signs
of the evil of former generatiosi,
and the same may be said of the good.
Any person can see tins, in every day
life, in what is called "blood," as
said of any one: "He is ofgood or bad
blood." We do not judge by the qual
ity-of the blood in the. body, but by
the actions and conduct of his ances
tors. "Get out of theway. What are you
good for?" said a cross old re an; to a
little bright-Kjyed boy who happened to
stand in bij way. The little fellow; as'
he stepped one, side, replied cry'gen-
tly: "They make, men of sncfi things
as we are.
