last year I remember we beganakattig v
oely two days after the frost set in. C
SNow Mr. Grant had three fine boys, and
it would have been a sad loss to him to have re
'ald any of them drowned; so, notwithetand- tl
ag his constant wish to gratify them in all a
.that was lawful in the way of amusement- c
for he knew that the secretof health of mind g
iand body was plenty of exercise, and a ci
Ight heart-bhe reflected on the danger, and of
erefore said :
"I don't know what to say, Charlie. It ti
quite true it has been freezing, but not p
early so sharply as last year." m
S" Oh, but then, Father," broke in all the fe
ys at once, " the Reynoldses were skat. It
g all day yesterday on Marsh's Pool, and re
day there is to Le a large party on the he
per pond at the Brake." fe
"' Well," said Mr. Grant, " I will let you fa
if you will promise me faithfully that ci
on will keep well at this end of the pond;" tl
there the anxious father knew that the hi
r was not only very shallow but free at
as the under current of several stream- so

not t go beyond the boat-house, and hi
''Thank yoa, papa ! thank you !" broke
the three voices, before Mr. Grant could

ough with the understanding of the limit

the house, and were soon out on the la

mpanions on the ice. fol
) "How hard the road is," remarked Fran- ki:
who was the oldest of the three; " it Lc
been freezing very hard last night,- dii
auh harder than papa thought. There is "]
o fear to-day. I wish papa had only ha
known how hard the frost is. Why, look ke
k here I I cannot break the ice on this be
ttle pool, even though I jump on it with et(
I my might." pe
"How jolly I" said Kirwin Grant, " and fo
of a bit of snow ; won't the ice be glo- by

hilarating is the sharp frosty air on a win- 161
ter's morning, when' the branches and in
leaves and biades of grass are all covered sol
with the feathqry frost of the past night! po
And so our party found it, and were in the -i
best possible spirits when they arrived at Cr,
the poyd, where already twenty of their be
friendr were gliding like fairies over the ice. de:
What Iee how smooth, how bright and the
b k What glee the skaters were in- Bri
what'ourves and figures they unade-what the
racing and delight they had ! and so the ma
hour passed away. Time after time Kir- Pri

curvereturned within the lawful extent of ma
their amusement. Charlie, who was a Fre
brave boy, and the beat skaterin the party, ara
kept well within the bounds, and was win- In
anig golden honors in a variety of fine turns Vet
and curves. Several times he skated back- St.
wards, pursued by others, and had escaped, six
getting only one fall from a piece of broken run
strap, which tripped him up; but what is a rail
fall to an active lad 1 The next moment he and
was redeeming his slip by a magnificent On
outer edge-stroke, when at once every boy dat
of the party came hurrying down, crying the
out: " A race, a race ; thrice round the d'el
pond !" Captain Corounwaite was there, pil
and had offered five dollars to the winner. cot
" Captain Cornthwaite, y'u know," said the
Kirwin to Charlie, ' Is a friend of papa's sun
so there can be no harm in this once pass. Bor

Come,comealong! There's no time to lose." the
But Charlie still hesitated. Wai
"Well," said Francis, "I think you ought dire
to accept Captain Cornthwaite's invitation, in it

Id. Come, now, Charlie, it's only for the the

in to this side of the boat house." And up f

Whether it was the fear that the volv

Mld C TRIOSITIE'S OF CHRQB OLOGY.
mit (Fom the Pail laliGazette )
out The dies nefasti are numerous for Eng
the land and the world. The 20th of May,
oat, 1660, is still remembered as having inau
heir gurated the shameful reign of Charles II,
for over asscgiated with the loss of Dan- l
an- kirk, the sound of hostile cannon heard in
"it London, and a host of other sorrows and
t,- disgraces brought on the country by its
a is "Nell.-wynne-Defeuder," as Mr. Carlyle I
ly has termed him. But it is not so generally I
oak known that on the 29th of May, 1453, may y
this be said to have been laid the foundation j
sith atone of the Eastern Question, with its v
perennial crops of wars and rumors of wars; i
ad for on that day Constantinople was taken
l10- by the Turks. Fatal to the Teutonic race
hey is the 14th of October, day of Jena and
ver Hoohkirchen, and Senlao, which our fath- b
gh ere called haetings. Fatal to the House of It
ex- Bourbon is the 14th of May, marked in
in- 1610 by the assassination of Henri IV., and
and in 1643by the death of his son and succes
red sor. There are now days on which the 1
ht! powers of good and of evil seem to contend
the -now one, now the other overcoming.
Iat Cromwell's lucky day, 3rd of September, U
sir became, as everyone knows, the day of his
ce. death. What inspiration of Ate induced
nd the Pretender to set up his standard at
- Braemar on the anniversary of that day in T
hat the year 1715. Perhaps the same which
the made Napoleon III., declare war against
ir- Prussia on the same day as that on which
of his unc'e delivered himself up to a British (
ful officer (July 1815-70.) But the most re
of markable anniversary in the history of the
a French Revolution and Napoleon, so insep
y, arably entwined together, is the 5th of May. o
n- In 1789 it saw the States-General meet at
na Versailles; in 1821 it saw Napoleon die at to
k- St. Helena. In that shbort apace of thirty- h
ed, six years the Revolution seemed to have P
en run its course, produced its greatest man, T
a a raised him to the summit of human power to
he and glory, and left him miserably to perish.
tnt On the other hand, the coincidence of the T,
cy dates of the coronation of Napoleon I., of ,
og the battle of Austerlitz, and of the eoup C.
he d'etat which established the Second Em
re, pile (December 2, 1804, 1805, 1851), was
r. ujt unintentional, at least with regard to t
id the last of these events; for belief it the
's sun of Austerlitz is common to every loyal Ai
;. Bonaparte. But not every one can turn an
cc anniversary to account. Lord Raglan may J"
I; have secretly augured of.success when on
the fortieth anniversary of the glories of
Waterloo, "quorum pars magna fuir," he
it directed the attack on the Redan. But
, in 1855 the 18th of June refuseod to favor us
e though it is worth noting that the failure of
te the assault was mainly occasioned by Gen
ek eral Mazan mistaking a blazing fusee sent
td up from the Branclon redoubt for the rock- 15ý
a et signals which had been agreed on as the
u. notice for a general advance. On esch a
e day the stars in their courses would fight
l against our brave allies, and we were in- co,
e volved in their ill fortune. The day of L
a Waterloo was also the day of Kolio, 1757,
, "a day which, if the Greek superstition still
f retained its influence, would be held sacred r
it to Nemesis, a day on which the two great
d eat princes of modern times were taught, ch.
I- by a terrible experience, that neither skill
it nor valor can fix the inconstancy of for- J(
o tune." The 18th of June, it should be add
d ed, has not always been fortunate for Eng- UT
r land, for it was on that day, in 1429, that A
Talbot was defeated and taken prisoner by asd
a Joan of Arc. Months, too, have their pro
parties-that of January being to disagree JN
a with kings, Charles I. coming to signal
grief on the 3:th and Louis XVI. on the sa
21st. On the other hand, one is bound to ,p,
admit that February is not much more theI
propitious, as the deposition of James I. "
by the Act of the Convention in 16o9 (Feb- je
ruary 13th) and the abdication of Louis
Philippe in-1848 (February 24th) may tee
I tify. The year 1689 naturally recalls 1789,
and this is only one of the numerous in
stances in which history seems to arrange Wai
its chronology neatly, and with the kindly
intention of belping human memory. Sim
ilarly 1215, 1415, 1815 show a harmonionus
progression of centuries and events; Magna Prl
Charts, Agincourt, Waterloo. Our de
scendants may look out for great events in
2615-possibly the millennium, which ap- de,
pears to a good 800 years off at the present
moment. In 1888 expect a great but not W
irromediable disaster, if you atall acknowl
edge the subtle influence.of numbers. 166t
is marked by the Great Fire in London; ,,
1777 by the surrender of Burgoyne at Sara- hI, a
toga. Other instances of natural meitirite "
techlnicwr are the deaths of our three tirst ooe
Edwards in 1307, 1327. 1377; while '77 i
helps one to remember 99 of the same cen- S a
tury, when the curse ot the bards on the
posterity of the ruthless king was fulfilled, i
and the third Edwards' grandson died GE
(parhaps) of starvation.
