more need for your going out, because
you eat as much on a rainy day as up
on a Clear day, and if you exercise less
hat mnuch more remains in the system
of what ought to be thro - n off by ex
ercise, and tome ill result, some con.
sequent symptom or ill feeling is the
certa i issue.
It it is cold out of doors, do not

year my life was a buartheni with
this woman. She drank all I saved
from my earnings before I knew it,
and, to crown the whole, she pawned
mny Sunday clothes. I felt convinced
she must be possessed of an unnatural
spirit. So I took her to the Bishop
"To Bishop Hughes-and told him
my woful tale, and also what I thought
was the cause of it. The Bishop as
sured mue she not only had one, but, slhe
actually had seven devils. I became
frightened almost to death. I firmilv
believed that there was not then on
the earth a man more sorrowful, terri
fied, and perplexed than I. My three
little children were helpless anad des

my clergy (extremei unction,) I would

reason he did nothing for her. le

knowing it would have no effect if

RIms. -An ace unt reached 'Lalay ette,

sul'erings of two eihigrantfamilies on
the prairies,,a descripti iof ghich is
really heart sickening.
It seems that on the 21st''January
last, a violent storm happened, and
that on the Saturday preceding two
finiaiiles, consisting of tell persons,
were in the act of' moving from South
erin Indiana to N rthern Illinois.
They arrived at Uxteord, the county
seat of Beiton county, (Ind.) about
forty miles i.orthwest i Lafayette,
with Zwo ox teams, and well provided
with necessaries fior the ro-id. They
remained there through the storm, and
on Monday morning resumed their
journey. Last Tuesday morning a
man passing over a prairie, only about
live miles from Oxford, camne Upoll a
sight which filled hi i with horror.
The eareases of' two oxen, from
which the viscerai had beei removed,
lay upoin the ground. liaside of ot.e
of' ti.mi were tile frozen btdies of' lo..r
childreii, and inl the other the frozen
corpse of the mother, with a nurmgin
miiant at her breast. Under te snow
wais a heap of ashes, ill which the iron

had broken them up, and buined ev.

It is probable tUt the party became
ilextuicably involveu ill the snow

their wagnt ses it would seem that the

shelter to those sound in them, and
then, accompaiied by one woman,
