Electioneering Stories.
A story is going about the 'Lon
don clubs of a candidate for-a va
cant seat in Parliament, lie was
walking through the streets of the
borough with his attorney, when a
neutral voter was pointed out. The
legal adviser said that the candi
date had better tackle the voter at
once.'
"What is his profession?" said
the candidate.
"I am not sure," was the reply,
"but I rather think that he is a
trunk-maker."
,. "Hqw do you do, how do you do,
my dear sir?" says the candidate.
"Llow very fortunate that 1 have
made your acquaintance. Mrs. X.
has been traveling about a good
deal lately, and has worn out her
trunk. Please make me the very
best trunk that you possibly can."
MI am much flattered by your
commands," said the voter, "but I
am not a trunk-maker." -
"Oh! yes you are," said the can
didate. , . , ,
.. "No, indeed, I am not," said the
voter.- - . .'.. . ... '
"Then, pray, what are you?" says
the candidate. . ''' , ' ,
,"If you please, sir, Vm a coffin
maker." .
"0, that will do just as well,"
said Mr. X., the candidate. "Please
nuke me a coffin; the very, best
coffin you possibly can.". .
The voter said: "Please, sir, you
are joking; how, I don't like that."
,' .Mr, X., in reply "Never was
more serious in my life.? ; .'. i'
"Well," says the voter,! "all is
fair in the way of business. But
be good enough to give me a writ
ten order." , '. , ". 1 ;' ' , .
"By all manner of means,' said
Mr. X., who at once gave him a
written order,, . :.
:; About a week afterward a hearse
with plumes and feathers drew-up
at a comfortable family mansion in
one of the London parks,' and out
came a coffin.' . The , .servants were
horrified, and declined to take the
dark obj ect ' in-doors. The under
takerwas ineiorablfi, , MrrjX. jeas
at dinner, and being interrogated
by his servant, desired the cofliu t
be brought into the house,
"But where 6hall we put it?" said
JJlrs. a. . , '
"Under the bed," said Mr. X. "
To this Mrs. X. decidedly olgect
eu. boon, all the. servants came
and began to insinuate symptoms
of giving warning. They could not
think of abiding in the house with
a coffin. Mr. X. then ordered it Id
be taken to his chambers in the
Temple. On one of his ftiends ask
ing him what He had done with. his
coffin, he admitted that he had put
a whole set of voluminous law re;
ports into it.' The said candidate
is likely to hear more of this when
he goes-among- hiir newly-formed
acquaintances in the borough.
Here is a story of an election for
the North German'Parlianieiit:
In a smalt place in the district
of Coblenz, the mayor sent round
the public crier to proclaim, with
the assistance of his bell, the iol
lowing extraordinary communica
tion: "With the bell be it herewith
proclaimed that on the 12th. there
Is an election for Parliament, and
Mr. Stumn is going to be elected."
The following day the opposition
party engaged the same town cri
er to bell out as lollows: ."With
the bell be it herewith proclaimed
that on the 12th there is to be an
election lor Parliament; Mr. Stumn
however is not going to be elected,
but Mr. ,Cetto is." The ancient
town crier, who is'also night watch
man,' added to his proclamation his
own sentiments to the effect that
"those who won't select either of
these may do just as they like."
Playing Pool.
Almost every body knows how
to play pool. To those who don't
know we will state that the game
is played on a - billiard table, with
twenty or thirty' balls, : each balj
numbered, A : dozen or more cm
play the game.'' A certain! number
is fixed upon, and the player who
shall first piocket enough ; balls,,
whose -combined numbers ' Will
ajnount to it, wins the pile whloh u
up by the players staking si certain
amount before the game commen
ces. Previous to the -commencement
each player draws a marble
from the bos and puts it out of sight
in his pocket. These marbles are
all numbered to correspond -with
the ..numbers on the table. The
E layer, after receiving the marble,
ears the number in his mind, and
his game is to pocket balls enough,'
the number of which, added to thpt
on themarblein his pocket, 'will
make the number which' wins the
pile. ' . : ' ": ''
: The other night an old citizen
of one of our Western' cities,: who
was occasionally given to "chartce,"
came home rnther late. - Ilia wife
was asleep. When she awoke in
the morning she found on the floor
a marble, upon which was the num
ber "17."
"What's this?" she said to her
lord, eyeing the marble suspicious
ly. "It droped out of your panta
loons pocket. What is it ?"
Her husband opened his eyes,
looked, blushed, was contused and
stammered,
"Why why it's a marble, ain't
it?"
"Yes," said she, "but what are
you doing with a marble in your
pocket at your time of life ?"
"In my pocket? Well ah! the
fact is I've had that marble in my
pocket for the last thirty years;
ever since I used to play for keeps
with Bill." " - . ; "
"Indeed?" incredulously asked
his wife "but what are these fig
ures on here for? What does 1 17
mean?" . '
"Mean? 17 mean?" said he, hesi
tatingly. ; "0, 17 1 why, that was
the number of i marbles . Bill . owed
me when we quit playing ; he mark
ed it on there so I wouldn't forget
it." ' - ';!',,..

Playing Pool. The Laws of Health---Treatment
of the Skin and Hair.
't)n sStqrday evening Dr. Heb
bkrd delivered the sixth lecture of
his course of fourteen on "Human
Improvement," at Cooper Institute,
TSew York. These lectures are
amusing ' and instructive, and
should be heard by all who wish to
preserve good health. The subject
of the lecture on iSaturday was
"(The Skin and Hair," which the
Doctor treated substantially as fol
lows: There are 000,000,000 cells
in the lungs that, if spread out,
WjOuld cover a surface seven times
as large as the human body, and
tfte membrane lining the intestinal
cmiui is mree times as jarge.
These two sympathize with one
another; a chill upon the outside
is reflected upon th inside, and
croup, dyptheria, lung fever, etc.,
are the result. Indigestible food
irritating the stomach and mucus
coating will be reflected upon the
outside, and humors of various
kinds, will be the result. All ladies
who would have fair skins can not
be too careful of' their digestion.
The skin has three' layers the
cuticle, the rele mucosum and the
cutit rem. Fjom the cuticle or
outside layer grows the hair The
hair is cylindrical,, and is filled up
With pigments from the blood. If
the blood is poor the hair is liable
to come .out. ...Good . digestion is
necessary to a good growth of hair.
Hair comes out after a fever be
cause the blood is impoverished.
Hair tonics will not restore the
hair. Cleanse the hair with the
white of an ess and water. Man
ipulate the head often to keep the
blood in the scalp. ' By no manner
of means should alkali be used for
the hair;-soap 'should always be
avoided, as it eats the albumen
that composes ' the outer skin.
Corns1 are cured by applying a salve
made of ertual parts, of shavinc
from bar soap and powdered sal
0(U.' 'ine second layer the rete
t)sim is interesting1 as 'the
seat of the color of the skin. The
third layer is the ' true skin, and is
ftiterefbre"TaH ed! 1 the1 evtl s ' vera.
When boiled it makes 'clue : when
tanned, leatfler. ' !lt is full of blood
vessels, that,if they were rolled into
a mass, would be larger than the
heart itself, and so full of nerves,
that all put together would make
a mass i larger than rthe brain.
Therefore the vast importance of
this organ, and hence the philoso
phy, of .external applications-as
steam water, the human hand, &c.
Through,', all, this net-work runs
perspiratory tubes, of .which there
are over T00,000, or 5J8 miles of
pores,; through which pas3 five out
of seven pounds of all the impuri
ties of.. the blood.. If these .are
closed, these impurities remain in
the blqod, and . break, out in the
shape of pimples, humors, &c, on
the skin, or fasten upon the glands,
the lungs, and other internal or
gans. : Hence the necessity of
bathing. All people ought to
bathe every morning, both for
health and cleanliness. , There is
no occasion for giving children
cream oi tartar or brimstone to
physic out the hlood, if they are
kept clean. On the prominent
parts of the face, in the flexions of
the joints, in the arm-pits, &c, are
little oil wells called gehaciovs
follicle, which secrete from the
blood an oil with which to lubri
cate these parts. If this is not
washed off ib will become rancid,
concrete, and foul. Hence the de
mand for perfumery, God made
man and woman for the sunlight.
Thousands of women are dying for
the want of this element. lie
made them also for the air, and
therefore womerr as well as men
should be in it most of the time.
We breathe one-eighth as much
through the skin as by the lungs ;
therefore the clothing should be as
porous as possible, so as to admit
the ' atmospliereio air to the skin.
Clothing should be washed often,
and that U6ed through, the dav
should not be used in the- night
time. Sleeping rooms! should be
elevated, and exposed ! to the sun
light and air at least four or five
hours in the morning. Sun baths
and air baths daily were advisable.
Dr. Franklin was in the habit of
taking an. air bath when restless
at nights. These were advised, in
stead !bf "narcotics,- for. sleepless
persons. . Place a thermometer un
der : the' arms of an adult 'person,
and it will run up to 98 - degree j ;
this is the average the world over.
Under the "arms of children or old
people it wilt run up to only 90 de
grees, or lessv Therefore children
and old people should bo dressed
warmer than the middle aged.
Mothers, not understanding this
fast, dress their, little ones insuf
ficiently, and, exposing them to the
cold northeasters, are surprised
and agonized by "midnight cries."
Dyptheria, croup, &c, lay their
hands upon them thus exposed,
and when thgse beautiful buds lire
transplanted, to bloom in the
Savior's garden above, thpse poor
ignorant mothers say, "The Lord
gave, and the Lord hath taken
away." No; this is the "slaughter
of the innocents." The ravages of
cholera are a cipher compared to
this.
"I can Afford to Lose an Arm for
my Country."
At the battle of Kenesaw, a
Colonel of the Federal army, gal
lantly leading Jus regiment in the
charge, was brought from his horse
by a bullet from the rifle of a rebel
sharp-shooter. The wound was a
severe one, and, weak and fainting,
he was compelled to leave his .no
ble comrades, and go to the rear,
to be placed under the surgeon's
care. He was informed that the
amputation of his "good right arm"
wa3 necessary. Nerving himself
for the amputation he 6aid to a
brother officer, now a resident of
Cleveland, who was commiserating
him upon his misfortune, "I can af
ford to lose an arm for my country."
The wounded officer was Colonel
James M. Neibling, recently re
jected by the Senate of theUnited
States, as Collector of Internal
Kevenue for the Fifth Ohio Dis
trict. The gallant officer who was
proud to lose an arm for the sake
of his country, is deemed "disloy-;
al V by the Radical majority in the
Senate of the United States, and
is contemptuously refused an of
fice, which they desire to give to
some able-bodied, stay-at-home
radical wire-puller." . The treat
ment Col.. Neibling and : the other
soldiers rejected, have received
from the Senate is a commentary
upon the boasted love for the boys
in blue so loudly m6uthed, a few

[Cleveland Plain Dealer.
A few- days since I was sitting
with ; Mr. Daw, the lawyer, in his
office, in Court square; a client
came in, and said :
1 Stokes, the livery-stable keeper,
took' me in dreadfully yesterday,
and I want to be even with him.
State your case, said Daw.
Client: "I asked him how much
he would charge me for a horse to
go to Dedham. He said fifteen
shillings. I took the horse and
went, and when I came back I paid
him fifteen shillings, and he said
he wanted fifteen shillings for
coming back, and made me pay it.
Daw gave him some legal advice,
which the client immediately act
ed upon as follows:
He went to the stable-keeper,
and said :
How much will you charge me
for a horse to go to Salem ?
Stable-keeper replied, Thirty shill
ings. Harness him, then. '
Client went to Salem, came back
by railroad, and went to the stable
keeper, saying :
Here is your money, paying him
thirty shillings.
Where is my horse ? demands
the stable-keeper.
: He's at Salem, says client; I only
hired him to go to Salem. 1
A Word to Young Mek. My
friend, did you ever know, can you
call to mind a single case of a
person, who having his own way
to make in the world, spends his
time in the streets, in billiard sa
loons,: around hotels, or in any form
of dissipation, succeed in any great
degree in any enterprise? Look
over your list of friends and ac
quaintances and note their course.
Do you not find upon examination
that those who to-day are men of
influence ' and honor were the
youths who made the most of val
uable time, turning it to good ac
count; and, on the other hand,
don't you find that those who stood
at the corners i with a cigar or pipe
in their mouth, went from bad to
wore, from worse to ruin? Sadly
must the answerbemade oh, that
it was not so they have failed.
Will you not profit by the experi
ence of others ? Oo not that way.
NeVer be idle. 1 Every, moment of
your time is a golden. one : use it
as such. Improve the mind. : Fix
your eyes upon some noble object.
Ba men. The call is for men.
Will you not be one of that num
ber who can say, "I am a man."
