About Driving Mules. Most ev
ery ono is familiar with the mode of
driving (?) a drove of young mule.
It is on the inverse system. The
drover buys up from fifty to a hutidred
young, unbroken mules, and mounted
on a brood mare, they follow after' the
same as do sheep the bellwether of a
flock. For a great many years an old
trader familiarly called "Old Sol "
who if ever possessed of anv other'
patronymic had probably forp-ottcn .
tho fact was in the habit of bringing
in from the West a drove of the long
eared animals and disposing of them j
to the farmers of South Jersey. The
last business visit he made to that sec
tion was about the time the turnpike
mania raed, and a single bar was
stretched across nearly every public
road, to pass beyond which required
the payment of
t or every carriage, sleigh, or sled
drawn by one beast, one and one-half
cents per mile.
For every additional beast, one and
one-half cents. ,
" For every dozen calves, sheep or
hogs, two cents. -.
For every dozen of horses, mules or
cattle, six cents. '. - '
Old-Sol" had passed something
like two dozen of these bars on his
way .from Camden ..to Bridgeton, pay
ing the legal exaction at each under
Si-otest and in very profane language,
ot having disposed of a single mule, '
and drawing nigh the end of a long
journey, he was beginning 'to suffer
from a drouth in his pocket, and to
his dismay saw the inevitable bar once
more before him. Looking around
and finding his mules were leisurely
browsing along the road some two or
three hundred yards behind, he hur-..
ried up his pace to the gate, paid a
single toll for the horse he was riding,
and made a special request of the gate
keeper to shut it afte him and stop
those darned mules which had been.
following him two or three miles.
"Certainly," said the accommo
dating keeper, who had it locked in
less time than it takes to tell it. "Old '
Sol" started off again on a brisk can- ;
tor, which his mules soon imitated,
and as they came to the gate bar went
over it in one, two, and three order,
to the astonishment of the keeper, '.
w-ho saw the point of the joke in a few
minutes after, and acknowledged him-
self" dead beat."
How the Swiss Make Matches. It '
is the general custom in Berne, savs a
Swiss writer, that the lover's father
should play tho wooer to the parents
of the bride. He frequently goes to
them and says: . .
"My lad likes your daughter. I.'
suppose you have nothing much
against it, and that it will suit you?"

orate fashion, as in the case ot the
father who knocked one evening late
at a window, begged the old people to ;
look out, and then began: - .
"It is trod s will that my boy and
Jour girl should come together. I
ave had to make up my mind to it,
and so will you; but I should like to
ask what dever you mean to give her :
about a thousand pounds, I fancy?" .
"I approve the match." returned
the other party ; "but I can't think of .
giving her more than a hundred
" You don't mean it?" said the other.
"Indeed I do; not one halfpenny

Then replied the former. "It is not
God's will that the1 two should come '
together. The Lord's purposes are
unfathomable, and his ways past find

" Quite the reverse," said the other.
and quietly closed the window.
A little girl who had been visitiner
in , the family of a neighbor, hearing
them speak of her father being a wid
ower, on her return home addressed
him thus? , 1 ; .
"Pa, are you a widower?". , - -
"Yes, my child. Don't Vou know
