Good Advice.
"So joa are going to college,
boj! Well, awsj wab'yoQ;
lucres no oie idTlslng you;
you'll do at all the rest do.' In
one year you'll know more than
your father, your mother.'or 1,
or all your college offloert in
fact, more than the Lord him
self. You'll have doubts about
the Bible, and think you could
have made a better one. YouH
think that if the Lord hsd eon
suited you he could haveMaid

better, and arranged the ecorse
of nature to more purpose In
short you'll be a god, knowing
good and evil, and running all
over creation measuring every,
body and everything injrour
pint cup. There'll be no linns
with you. But you'll get over
it, its only the febrile stsge of
knowledge But if you have
a good constitution, you'll
come through with it." 6
I humbly suggested to him
that I should try to keep clear
ot the lebrile slagp; that fore
warned was forearmed.
Oh, lut? lull you mu8fgo
through your fooleries. These
are the regular diseases, the
chicken-pox, measels,' 'and
mumps of young .nunhuod;
you'll have ihni nil. We only
pray that you may have them
light, and not break your con
8iiiution for all 3 our lile lliro'

and goodness only knows wh.it
abominations of sotmels you'll
be guilty ol. That i.-n'l lata),
however. Only don't get 'en
gaged. Take it as the rliicken-
u.oc kep your, pores open

"And slu!' said I indignunt
v. "You talk us it it v, us no
m'ati-r wli'at became ol Iter "
VVImt, the babj? Oh, hhe'Jl
ouigrow it, too. The lact is,
doberl) and seriously, Uarry,
marriage is I ho thing thai
makes or mars a man; its the
gale through winch he gues up
or down, and you shouldn't
pledge yourseli to it till you
come to your senses. Look at
your mother, toy, see what a
woman may be; see what the
was to your lather, what she is
to me, to you, to every one
that knows her. Such a wo
man, to speak reverently, is a
pearl ofgre.t price; a man
might well sell all he 'had to
buy her; but it isn't that kind
of woman that flirts with col
lege boys. You don't pick up
such pearls every day."
Ol course I declared that
nothing was further irom my
thoughts than anything of that
nature.
"Tbe fact is Uarry, you can't
afford fooleries," said my uncle.
You have your own way to
make, and nothing to make it
wilh but your own bead and
hands, and you mustbeein
now to count the cost of every
l hin g. You have a healthy,
sound bod; see (hat you take
care of it. God gives you a
body but once. He don't take 1
care of it lor you, and what
ever of it you loseyou lose
tor good. Many a chap goes
into college Iresh as you are,
and comes out with weak eyes
and crooked back, yellow com
pleiion and dyspeptic stomach,
lie has only himself to thank
lor it. ' When you get to col
lege they'll want you to smoke
and you'll want' to, just for idle
ness and good fellowship. Now,
beloreybu begin, JuhI calculate
what it will cost you. , You
can't get a good cigar under

give a permanent income of

handy thing you'll find, just
as yon are beginning life. Now,
know yon think all this Is

to figures of rhetoric, but, after
all, you've got to get on in a
world where things go by the
rules of arithmetic
-Well, uncle," I Bald, a little
nettled,44! pledge you my word
that I won't smoke or drink. I
never have dore either, and I
don't know why I should. '
Good for you! your hand on
that, my boy. You don't need
either tobacco or spirits any
more than you need water in
your shoes. There's no danger
doing without them, aud
great dancer in doing with
them: so let's look on that as
settled.
'Now, as to the rest. You

Now Harry remember that
empty bag can't stand up
right; and that if you are ever
be a writer you must have
something to Bay, and that
you've got to dig for knowledge
for hidden treusure. A ge

kind of genius. Look at great

The Deacon's Swill-Barrel.
Just outbide of the house
stood father, the deacon, tug
ging away at a big lump of Ice
the swill-barrel.
'Bud business, that," said I,
resting my hand on my Bides.
Not hal' so bad as it mighty
been," was the reply, as he
lifted the cake of ice out by a
stout stick that had frozen up
the swill. 4,Manv an' many a
bar'l had busied for me thai
wouldn't if this knowledge had
only come to me sooner' sid
he. "You see, when this cold
fnap came on suddenly, I
thought ot the swill bar'l away
the night, and I said,. Well,
can't be helped now.' It hap
pened, however, that the stick
stir with was left poked down
the swill, and that was all
that saved it.. A bar'l, or a tub,
a pail, may freeze up solid,!
and it a stick has been put
down in tbe water,.the vessel
can't bust. But it took me a
good wnile to find it out-never
knew it till . last Winter; lived
years before I knew
it," and bis eyes twinkled
knowintriy. . . ...
"Why, , that's on the same
plan," said I, of pulling a
spoon 111 a glass jar when you
are canuing iruii; it you do that
the jar won't break." . " '

said he, as he gave the 'ball of
ice a kck, and sent it tiling

Speed of the Carrier-Pigeon.
The speed of tbe carrier-pig
eon has been generally over
rated. Careful experiments
have shown that thirty miles
an hour is tbe average, al
tbovsh, jn a few welraathenti
cated instances, thrice Ihit
peed has been attained. In
180S an English gentleman
laid a large wager that his pig.
eons could fly thirty-five miles
an hoar. To decide the ques
tion, three of hh trained birds
were taken exactly that dis
ta nee from his residence, and
let loose in the presence of
witnesses. They arrived home
together in just fitty-three
minutes, or seven miautes
ahead ot time. In 1833, dur
ing tno great annual trial of
carrier pigeons atUhenr, twen
ty four birds were let fly at
Rouen, one hundred and fifty
miles distant, at five minutes
before ten in the morning.
Their flight was carefullylimed.
One of them reached Ghent
in one hour and thirty minutes,
having traversed the distance
at the marvelous rate of more
than ninety miles an hour.
Sixteen made the journey in
two hours and a halt. Several
were never heard from. In
the Eist wonderful stories
are told of their speed and en
durance. The traveler Lith-
gow tells us that one will car.
ry a It t'.er from Bibvlon to Al
leppo in forty-e'ght hours, the
places being thirty days' jour
ney apart by lha alo modes
of travel used to the Eist. But
the. stories of early travelers
ae to be taken with many
grains of allowance. Although
for a short distance, or in ex
ceptional cases, the carrier.
pigeon may attain a much
greater speed, thirty miles an
hour is probably its average.
It could not 6usUin a long
flight with greater velocity.
Even l In j speed can no, be
maintained without rest, for
the.Ciirrier-piaeoii has not the
endurance which belongs to
many birds ot passage. It al
ways decends at night for shel
ter and repose, and hence it
can rarely fly across a wide ex
panse of water. To this was
partly owing th failue of the
attempt to use them lor con
veying intelligence irom the
arctic explorers, and partly to
another cause. Some writers,
chielfly poets and romancers,
would have us believe that the
carrier-pigeon finds his way
homo from remote places by a
kind of instinct; but this is
not tFie case. Its flight is guided
by sight alone. When let loose
from confinement it rises to a
great height in the air by a se
riei of constantly enlarging
circles until it catches sight of
some 'familiar landmark by
which to direct its course. If
flown on a foggy day it soon
becomes bewildered, and eith
er returns to the pface of fight
or is lost. Let. loose from a bal
loon on a clear day, and too
far above, the gronnd for ob
jects thereon to be discorned
even by its piercing vision, in
stead of rising, it drops per
pendicularly, like a plummet,
untij it nears the earth, when
it begins to wheel round. in a
descending spiral, constantly
increasing in diameter, evi
dently for the purpose above
menlioned of ascertaining its
locality, and discovering some
indications lor the direction

Drunkeness a Disease.
The well known Dr. Willard
Parker, of New York, lately de
livered an address before the
National Temperance Society.
What this experienced and a
ble physican says upon the sub
ject of intemperance is entitl
ed to very great weight, for tbe
reason that to bis ordinary med
ical experience is added that of
many years' care of inebriates.
The doctor hai come to tbe
conclusion that drnnkan.
ness is a disease that a
a .
uruiiKuru can qui COJrol.- bis
appetite, and that he will
hence drink at all hazards. The
doctor ranks alcohol among the
poisons; as poisonous as srienio
or belladonna, and as surely
destructive of life as these poi
sons. He took the very unusual
ground the purer the spirit, the
more deadly the effect, and de-
dared that if he were going to
use it he should, prefer the ad
ulterated article. He declared
that nothing is harmless in
which there is alcohol. In los
er there is three to four per
cent of alcohol; in ale seven
to eight; in wine twenty-three:
in gin fifty one; In brandy fl fty.
t'iree, and in cider two to three
per cent. -
