A Pretty Good Story.
' . la one of our southern seaboard cities,
and on a long street almost a road
leading therefrom to the country, dwells
an apothecary; a very tall and remarkably
slender person so thin, in fact, that ono
would suppose he fed exclusively on his
v own professional mixtures. Wo tailor
daro venture to cut & coat or any other
garment in any way approaching a snug
fit to his person, for rear of having the
work Toturned on his hands, and in that
case they would fit nobody else.
' " And yet, with this extraordinary paucity
( of flesh, there was a great supply of humor
1 1 in our hero; he was extravagantly fond of
practical jokes, and practiced them freely,
, when occasion ana opportunity offered,
He had an electric machine secluded from
'. night, and when any lazy person sauntered
into his shop, and ventured to indulge in
a nap or lounge, he was sure to be shocked
into activity, and pushed off. He was a
, i great advocate for temperance, and yet
was ready to furnish gratis a brimming
, glass of any sort of liquor any customer
might fancy; his liquor was found invari
ably to produce more nausea than any
other sensation. .
But a contrivance which afforded him
.. most merriment was a skoleton of a full
(l grown person in a closet of easy access in
' ' his shop.' This skeleton was placed erect
una platform which ran on smooth wheels;
, and wben the door was opened, this plat
form was pulled forward by an unseen
. thin wire or string, which connected it
... with the bolting of the closet door. There
wore also similar wires, fastened to the
wall behind the skeleton, and passing over
" each shoulder-bone were attached to the
' bones of the wrist Consequently, when
the oloset door was opened, the platform
on which the skeleton stood not only
advanced, but both arms and hands were
'. lifted upward!
'1 If any intoxicated, noisy, boisterous,
or impudent fellow came into his shop,
the apothecary would manage in some
- way to lead him to open that door, and it
" rarely failed (as he used to say) "to take
the liquor and spunk out of him." He
had two or three apprenticed lads in his
employ, who naturally relished these
jokes, and practised them, with his full
consent, when he might be absent
5 One day during his temporary absence
a sailor came drifting along occasionally
; stopping and dancing a jig and singing,
to the great merriment of a gang of boys
who followed and surrounded him. He
; was just drunk enough to play the fool,
and not to drunk to navigate. He event
ually brought up at the door of our apoth
ecary, and braoing himself in the door-
i way, yelled out:
"Hallow, my hearties! here you are
with your stuffed alligators and gallipot,
and mixins for sick folks! Why the devil
' don't youjkeep grog for tuff folks like mo?"
and here he snuffled off a ricadoor, and
made himsolf very merry, "well, .Tack,"
said one of the lads, ' what kind of grog
: do jouwantr . .
I'll take brandy," was the prompt
reply.
''Very well; go and help yourself;"
(handing him a tin mug,) "you will iind
it in that oloset"
Jack went as directed, and pulling open
the cloeet door, he found himself within
, grasping distance of an advanoing skele
ton; he incontinently fell back a step,
; dropped his tin oup; turned ash color,
made one spring to the door, and when he
reached the stroet, took the middle of it,
. and ran like a deer till ho reached a sup
. posed safe distance.
' Shortly after this our apothecary re-
turned, and being informed of the event,
. was greatly amused, but sadly lamented
his absence.
i' "I would not have missed seeing it,"
vaid he, "for a great deal I do wonder
if he will come back this way?"
, Jhit this was hardly probable, and yet
; it was the only way back to town.
In the course of a few hours, however,
j. sort .enough, Jack was heard at a distance
un his way back, singing and dancing.
Our apothecary anticipating an encore,
J .went out on' his door-steps, and elevating
, his thin person and extending his long
emaciated arm, and hand, very kindly
' beckoned Jack to repeat his visit Jack
no sooner saw him than he "put his helm
hard a port," and steered over to the other
side of the street, buttoning his jacket
over his breast, and pressing his tarpole
hat closer on' his head, so as to be ready
i for a run if chaie was given.
" "Ay-yey, old bag of bones," says Jack;
I "there yon are again, are you. Von think
v i don't know you, now you've got your
r clothes on!" and away he went on his
count, leaving our apothecary rather
puzzled in deciding which of the two got
the sharpest end of that joko.
Inclined to be Quarrelsome.
We heard that prince of story tellers,
Tom Colloway. get off the following,
amid bursts of laughter, the other night.
Squaring himself and stretching out his
legs, he Began:
Thore was once a littlo, shm-huilt
fellow, rich as a Jew, and independent as
the devil, riding along a highway in the
8tate of Georgia, when he overtook a man
driving a drove of hogs by the help of a
big, raw-boned, six-foot-two specimen of
humanity. Stopping the last-named indi
vidual, he accosted him:
"I say, are those your hogs?"
"No, sir; I'm to work by the month. '
f'Whatpaymightyoube getting.friend?"
"Ten dollars a month, and whisky
thrown in," was the reply.
'Woll, look, here, I'm a weak, little,
inoffensive man, and people are apt to
impose on me, d'ye see. Now, I'll give
you twenty-five dollars a month to ride
along with me and protect mo," said Mr.
Gardner. "But," he addod, as a thought
struck him, "how might you be on a fight?"
"Never been licked in my life," rejoinod
the six-footer.
"Just the man I want Is't a bargain?"
qucriod Gardner.
Six-footer ruminated. 'J Twenty-five
dollars double wages nothing to do but
to ride around and smash a follow' s mug
occasionally, when he's sassy.'
Six-footer acoepted.
They rode along, till just at night they
reached a village ina Dismounting at tho
door,they went in. Gardner immediately
singled out tho biggest man in the room,
and picked a fuss with him. After con
siderable promiscuous jawing, Gardner
turned to his fighting friend, and inti
mated that tho licking of that man had
become a sad necessity. Six-footer peeled,
went in, and came out first best.
The next night, at another hotel, the
same scene was re-enaoted Gardner get
ting into a row with the biggest man in
the place, and six-footer doing the lighting.
At last, on tho third day, they came to
a ferry kept by a huge, double-listed man,
who had never been licked in his hie.
Whilo crossing the river, Gardner, as
usual, began to find fault and "blow."
The ferryman naturally got mad, threw
things around kind 0' loose, and told him
his opinion of their kind. Gardner then
turned to his friend "from tho shoulder,"
and gently broko the intelligence to him,
"that ho was sorry, but that it was abso
lutely necossary to thrash that ferryman."
Six-footer nodded his head, but said
nothing. It was plainly to be seen that
he did not relish tne job, by the way ho
shrugged his shoulders, but there was no
help tor it So whon they reachod the
shore, both stripped, and at it they went.
Up and down the bank, over the sand into
the water, they fought, scratched, gouged,
bit, and rolled, till, at the end of an hour,
tho ferryman caved. Six-footer was trium
phant, but it was tough work. Going up
to his employer, ho scratched his head for
a moment, and then broko forth:
"Look hero, Mr, Gardner, your salary
sets mighty well, but I'm of the
opinion that you are inclined to be
quarrelsome Hore I've only been with
you three days, and I'vo licked the three
biggest men in the country! I think the,
firm had better dissolve, for you see, Mr.
Gardner, I'm afraid you're inclined to bo
quarrelsome, and I reckon I'll draw!"
Amusement as a Part of Education.
That which is recreation and diversion
to the man is nothing else than an accu
mulation of fatigue for a child. In order
to aid his physical formation, greater
reliance should bo placed upon amuse
nuonts of his own choice than upon exer
cises, notions, and even plays, prescribed
to him after a preconcerted plan. At an
early ago, one duty cannot afford relaxa
tion after another duty. On the contrary,
when an amusement is imposed upon a
child, it becomes a new fatigue fur him.
Recreation and play are, no doubt, most
necessary for him, cut only on condition
that they must be of his own accord, free
from that contention of mind which is
caused by doing a thing by compulsion,
or for the sake of obedience. Amusemont
without perfect freedom of choice, is void
of pleasure, and it is not only pleasure
which gives the charm to amusement, but
which by a natural reaction of the moral
and physical elements, renders it salutary.
Have we not seen, thousands of times,
how warmly children contend among
themselves in their plays? "I won't play
any more," says the one who thinks him
self aggrieved. He thinks that he has a
right to say so. The same child would
not think of saying, "I won't study any
more." Compel him to play "hide and
seek," and at the end of a quarter of an
hour he is tired of it; but had he chosen
this play, he would not be tired of it at
the end of four hours.
Parents who pretend to make the phys
ical alternate continually with tho moral
and intellectual education, by arranging,
after their own idea, the exorcises of the
one and of the other, and who, holding
the child by the hand, compel him to go
round a prescribed circle, condemn him
also to slavery as tedious as it is useless.
Let us always remember, that in order to
obtain a good physical education, amuse
ments and plays are of the greatest im
portance; and secondly, that thess cannot
be of any profit, but on two conditions,
the one being as essential as the other,
viz: pure air and perfect freedom.

fjuckly, one day by appointment, paid a
visit to hir Isaac Jewton. The servant
said he was in his study. No one was
permitted to disturb him there, but as it
was near dinner time, the visitor sat down
to wait for him. Ina short time a boiled
chicken under a cover was brought in for
dinner. , t
An hour passed on, and Sir Isaac did
not appear. Tho doc tor then ate the fowl
and covering up tho empty dih desired
the servant to get another ready for his
master. Before that was ready, the great
man came down. Ho apologised for his
delay, and added, "give me bnt leave to
take my short dinner, and 1 ahull be at
your service. 1 am now fatigued and
faint: ' saying this, he lifted up the cover,
and,' without any emotion, turned to
Stuckley with a smile, "See," said he,
"what we, studious people, are!' I fornot
that I had dined." ' V V 6

committed suicide the other day, by stab
