Farmer Post's succ.--al FIght With HII
Valuable Beast.
Abram Post, of Elderville. Pa.. owns
a blooded bull, which has long been
an object of terror to all emplo 'yed on
the farm, owing to its fierce and ar
gressive disposition. This bull had al
ways been under the control of its
owner, who declared that, so long as
any one stood up boldly against the
animal, no fear of its :ttacikin-' him
need be entert:ained. 1,- urgel this
upon his hired help, but he never conId
eimploy any man who wold not out
himself in a sife placa as n :%s the
bull assumed a bellizerent atti:ud', and
Post's wife frequenily apj-eded to him
to have the animal ki.lad, believing
that, sooner or later. it would rebel
against the anthority of her husband,
and attack him. The beast was to
valuable an animal to be smicrid,
and Post, ridiculing the idea that the
bull could master him, refused to p:,rt
with it.
On Thursday evening Post had fin
ished milking a cow in the barnya d,
and was returning to thet house n% hun
he noticed that the bull. which was in
the yard, shook his head savagely as
he passed by it, and had an unusually
vicious look in its eyes. Post pasced
on, paying no attention to the animal.
Hehad gone only a short distance
when he heard a quick step behind
him and a low bellowin" which he
knew was made by the buTl. He turn
ed quickly and saw the animal bearing
down upon him. He grasped the bull
with one hand by the horns hoping to
prevent it from goring hi:n, and the
next instant he was tossed in the air.
He fell on the bull's head and neck,
and was tossed the second time, this
time being thrown to the opposite side
of the barnyard fence. Be was badiy
brui ed and his clothing was torn by
rouXh handling he had received, but
believing that if he tlio wed the bull to

however, by soie nistake of the
waiter, he found on arriving his usua
place already occupied by a stranger
and, inwardly fretting at the disap

with the mistress of the establishmnot,
who presided at the counter, and
awaited the intruder's departure at

seemed in no hurry, for, after consult.

That love was wakened by your voles's tone,
That but to gaze upon your face was rapture;
But no: I love you for your wealth alone.
Suppose I said I loved you for your manner,

My constancy I claim Is thus attested;
Love based on-beauty goes when youth has
But if your money is but well invested.
I'll love you always for your wealth alone.

last term at boarding-school, and who
was not yet fairly domesticated, was a
more ornamental than useful element.
However, she had not been idle, and

Winnie went upstairs after a somewhat
