Tho Dog's Strategy.
Mr. Snapp, a bla;kmith, owns two dogs,
one a terrier, four or five years old, I lie
other half shepherd snd half common cur,
about twelve or fifteen years old, and con
sequently very feeble.
In the winter, between the hours of break
fast and dinner, and dinner and supper,
ihe'e two dogs may always be seen perched
up just far enough from Mr. Snapp s forge
to escape the sparks, but still near enough
to keep warm. 1 say Ik t wen the hours ol

an idea seemed to strike him. Takinsr ad

garden, barking furiously, as if some one
vas intruding at that point, when, true to
his nature, out'popped the terrier, not to
make a feint, but to make a pell-mell rush
t the extreme end of the garden, passing
t'.i old schemer ju.-t outside the kitchen
door, who no sooner saw the terrier enter

moments, lie made his appearai.ee right in

Now, what dog could resist such a tempt

the stove could not, it is plain, for sneaking
cautiously out ot ids snug retreat, he made
a sudden dash for the coveted bone, whi h

A LEGEND OF THE NORTHLAND,
Away, away In the JfortlanJ,
Where the hours of the day are few,
And the nijhti are sd Ions In Winter,
They can not sleep them through :
Where they harness the swift reindeer
To the slelgcs when it snows ;
And the children look like bears' cub,.
In their funny, furry clothes.
1 hey tell them a curious story
I don't believe Mis true:
Ani Tit you may learn alesson,
Iff tell the tale to you.
Once, when the good St Teter
Lived in the world below.
And walked about it preaching.
Just as he did you know;
lie came to the door of a cottage,
In traveling round the earth.
Where a little woman was making cakes,
To give him a single one.
Soshe made a very little "skc,
.Hutu it baking lar,
She looked at it, and thought it seemed
Too large to give away.
Therefore she kneaded another.
And still a smaller one;
But it looked, when she turned it over,
As large S3 the flrst had done.
Then she took a tiny scrap of dough
And rolled and rolled it llat;
And bakid it thin as a wafer
Knt she couldn't part with that,
For she said, "My cakes that teem toe-small
When I eat them myeelf.
Arc yet too lace to give away,"
So she put them on a shelf.
Then good Saint Peter grew angry,
I'or he was hungry and faint; """
Anil surely such a woman.
Was enough to provoke a saint.
And he said: "You arc furtoo6clfl3h,
To dwell in a human orm,
To have both focil and shelter.
And Ore to ketp yu warm.
"Now you shall build as the birds do.
And shall gtt your scanty food
Ily boring, and lioring, and boiing,
All day in the bard dry wood."
Then she went up through the ch'mney.
Never speaking a word ;
And out of the top flew a woodpecker,
For she was cluingtd toabird.
She hail a scarlet cap on her head.
And that was left the same.
But all the rett of her clothes were ljurr.nl
Klack as a ccul in the flame.
And every county school-boy
Has seen her in the wooJ;
her she lives in the trees tn this very day
lioring and boring lor food.
And this is the lesson she teaches;
Live not for yourself alone.
Lest the needs you will not pity
Shall one day be your own.
Give plenty of wht is given you.

died five years ago, and I inherited his co
lossal fortune. From that moment all men
with whom I have come In contact have
ither l'ed. cheated or deceived me. I was
like an innocent child in my belief and con
fidence. I had not been spoiled, and had
inherited from my good mother a heart
which was in need and looked for sympa-
hv and love. I found hypocritical scoun
drels, designing villains, whoso solo aim
seemed to be to deprive me of ray money
and so enjoy themselves at my expense.
Friends, or rather rascals whom I called
friends, and loved with ray whole heart, be
trayed and ridiculed me as a good-natured
fool; but my eyes were openeil at last, and

years oi age, cngagea in sewing some ele

steps ascending the stairs, and a charming
