HOW HE COLLECTED HIS BILL.
Bomb twenty-five years ago, Mr. Bod
kin, one of the old-fashioned printers of
jtork, wag looking sadly over his
ledger. Ag he turned over the leaf that
'disclosed the account of Mr. Qaoin, with
an unsettled balance of $ 315X0, and more
than two years ptkSt due, the sadness
changed to grimnesj. How well he re
membered the first visit of deluding
Quoin, wnen, with a corn-basket full of
wood-cuts, said to have cost f 1,000, he in
veigled the credulous Mr. Bodkin into
printing a book. For which Quoin had
never paid. But he had promised magnifi
cently. As soon, Mr. Bodkin, as I receive the
$315 and the sales of the book, I know,
will not be less than that every week you
shall have the money. A debt of honor,
Mr. Bodkin. You should have it, if I had
to sell my teeth." ' And here he showed a
collection that a hyena would have envied
for whiteness and hardness. "Then
again, Mr. Bodkin, you hold my wood cuts
as security. Worth three times the
amount of your bill! Finer collaterals
were never negotiated in Wall Street.
Pooh!' And he swung his cane around
his head, as if ready to demolish any man
or opinion that might rise in opposition.
So Mr. Bodkin, much impressed with
the rhetoric of Mr. Quoin, went on his way
rejoicing. Quoin went to Rhode Island,
where he sold his books, and pocketed the
proceeds. And Mr. Bodkin had waited
for the money. How often he had written
to Quoin ! How he hal expostulated, and
coaxea ana threatened! How he had of
fered to take calicoes, codfish, do ta toes, or
shinele nails, or any other production of
ia a jsiano. All to no purpose.
Then he had put the account in a law
yer s Hands, (juoin was sued, and judg
ment was had, and execution was issued,
and was returned unsatisfied. Neither Mr.
Quoin's property nor income could be at
tached. Bodkin fairly snorted as his eye
ieu upon the expenses or that suit.
Then he thought of that security
those invaluable collaterals the precious
wood-cuts that had cost f 1,000. Bodkin
had hawked them at every publisher in
me city, only to get substantially tee same
answer from all. "Good cuts: of course
they are. Worth a $1,000 no doubt to cut
mem ; out to us, who dorrt need them,
and could not use them, worth no more
than firewood." Such security ! Bodkin
was growing hysterical
He laughed aloud, not scornfully, but
exruungiy. it was tne laughter of inspi
ration. For the wood-cuts hd given him
a new notion of how the debt might be
collected. With undisguised chuckling,
he put on his hat and went in search ol
Sir. Mallet, a young gentleman of remarka
bly persuasive faculties, faultless in dress
moreover, an agent of the Pokomoke
Lottery, and an excellent juJge of the
game of pea and thimble. What trans
pired between Bodkin and Mallet is purely
conjectural. But it was odd that Mr. Bod
kin should, on his return, have directed
his foreman to print a dozen cards with
this inscription, M Henry Mallet, publisher,
No. 2,450 Washington Street, Buffalo."
Hen. Mallet a publisher! Why, even the
feeder-boys laid their fingers aside their
noses when they read it.
Two days after this Mr. Mallet laid one
of these cards on the desk of Mr. (juoin,
and begged to inquire of that gentleman
the probable value cf the wood-cuts used
in his book. Was he disposed to sell
them, or could they be used t To be can
did (and candor was always a weakness of
his), he needed them sorely. He had
mad) arrangements to publish a certain
book within three months. If it was out
by that time he would make $2,000 sure;
if it was delayed a week his chance of
profit was g jne forever. The miserable
engravers wanted three months to do the
work, whereas he could not spare three
wee els. yioin s cuts were not exactly
what he wanted, bat they would serve.
Would he take $50 for the use of them ?
Quoin smiled at his innocence, and
shook his heid. " I don't lend cuts; but
-I will sell them to you for $309, and that
is cneaper man you can get them made to
There was no denying this : but it took
in nrf" x n JtTi nn nmira nam ninnff Tn mo cf
Quoin abate the price to $600. The most
' potent argument Mallet used was his ap
parently careless production of a long,
flat wallet, filled with new crisp and crack
ling bank-notes, of high figures only, the
sight of which made Mr. Quoin show the
beautiful white teeth. Mallet was un
doubtedly a cash buyer.
Next came the question of terms.
"Would Mr. Mallet Inav J5 cish. and
take an order on his printer, who would
deliver the cuts on payment of $315.
It was Mallet's turn to smile, and he did
it like the heathen Chinee, " childlike and
bland." What did Mr. Quoin take him
for f He never paid for goods till he had
them. The idea of paying for cuts he had
not seen as yet, and of settling up Quoin's
bills was absurd I Under no circumstance
whatever would he take the cuts, until he
saw the receipted bills of both the engrav
er and printer. Was he to buy a lawsuit ?
to be served with attachments and trovers
and replevins and injunctions and games
of that sort? Not much. Mr. Mallet
tilted himself back in his chair, and looked
upward, as if in quest of relief from the
absurdities of Quoin.
Quoin became pensive. It was quite
clear that Mallet would not advance the
money to pay the printer's bilL Where
could ho get it ? But if he did not get it,
he would lose the $285. That was not to
be thought of The interview was ad
journed. Quoin went out to hunt np the
money, much to the annoyance of Mallet,
who could not conceal his apprehension
that Quoin was about to refuse to sell.
When Mallet had made np his mind to
buy, he wanted to buy and end the mi(r.
If Quoin would go on to New York with
him, he would pay all expenses; but he
would not pay for the cuts till he had
them, and witn a good title. And here he
flourished his wallet.
This was talking business to purpose,
aid accelerated Quoin's movements. He
raised the money. That night Quoin and
Mallet took passage together on the
steamer, and next morning found them at
the As tor House. Mallet had proved ex
cellent company. Hcfate and drank and
smoked and told good stories, and was as
chatty and confidential with Quoin as if
they had been schoolboys together. But
with all this. Mallet showed a most unac
countable fear that Quoin would give him
the slip. Quoin had to be very .decided to
prevent Mallet from accompanying him
when he went to see Bodkin. " He only
wanted to make sore it was all right" For
obvious reasons. Quoin was bound that
Mallet should not see the interview, and
shook him off resolutely.
" I shall count the minutes while I wait
In this room till you come back," said the
aggrieved and wistful Mallet, as he cast
himself upon the sofa.
" I will mrely be back in half an hour,"
said the triumphant Quoin.
It was with exceeding hauteur that
Quoin strode into the office of Bodkin. His
face was hard, his t-yes severe. It was the
grimness of an officer of justice on duty,
and the elevation of a lofty mind con
scious of right. Mr. Bodkin, I have
called to pay your bill. Of course, you
did not expect it. Nor do you deserve it
Your conduct in dunning me is shameful
perfectly shameful. I should feel justi
fied in refusing it altogether. But pro
duce your bill, sir." And he tugged at
his mustaches and looked defiantly. Ith
nriel himself was not more grand in con
sciousness of virtue.
The surprised and somewhat crestfallen
Bodkin fumbled in his drawers for the
bill, and at length produced it A spasm
of disgust flitted over Quoin's face as he
saw the hideous total, with two years' in
terest and legal expenses. But he made
np his mind to make an impression, and
he did it How it wrenched him nobody
but Quoin can imagine. He told down the
money in full, and eecurad his receipt
with great deliberation.
"Now, Mr. Bodkin, oblige me by pack
ing np those wood-cuts, and delivering
them to the porter."
" Surely, Mr. Quoin, you will not remove
those cuts so precipitately," said the peni
Up went Quoin's cane most menacingly.
"Not an hour, sir not an hour, air! I
want those cute udw, sir, now ! "
There was no resisting this impetuosity.
The cuts were produced, examined and
checked. t,.aoin sailed out of Bodkin's
office gloriously, with his porter tugging I
at the bundle, like a man-of-war protect
ing a merchantman.
It took but a few minutes to get back to
the Astor House. Here .was vexation.
The door of the room in which he had
left Mallet was looted. Down to the
clerk's office flew the irate and impatient
"Where's my friend and room-mate,
Mallet of room 8G9r"
u Mallet f Yes, yes ! Mallet, is it Why,
Mallet paid for his room, and left half an
"Just so. Paid for his room lalf an
hour ago ; took a coach, and wtnt to the
Erie Railroad Depot"
" No mistake. Went by the Erie Rail
road." Not even then was Quoin convinced
that his polite friend, Mallet, was a delu
sion and a snare. But he had the pre
sentiment All day long he traversed
from hotel t depot in an agoniz-d frame
of mind. Nor did he fail to call on the
Chief of Police, to make sure that hU
friend had not had a fit, and been stnt to
the hospital. Nor is it worth while to
recount his visits to booksellers and his
inquiries touching the publisher, Mallet

As night settled on the city he felt able to

justice. But he never saw either of them
That day Bodkin closed the ledger ac
count of Quoin. That day Boakin and
Mallet went out riding on the Coney
Island road. And the riders of that fre
quented thoroughfare were astonished at
the vivacity and vociferonsness of the
spectacled elderly gentleman and his
young friend. They were evidettly at
ease and at peace with tbe wide world.
So Mrs. Bodkin thought For Bodkin's
temper was sweet for a month state of

The Queen of the Turf.
There is no longer a "King of the

outbreak of epidemic small-pox, such as
that with which London is now afflicted.
The best observers ara of opinion that
when vaccination has been properly per
formed, and when the system has been
brought thoroughly under the influence of
the modified lorin ot me disease induced
by the vaccine matter, a person is no more
liable to take me small-pox than H he bad
formerly had the su.all-pox iiself. The
necessity of revaccination is due usually
to the fact that the operation is imperfectly
penormea, and the disease imperfectly de
veloped. Firewood, Green ob Dry. We have
heard it stated that green wood gives out
in burning a greater heat than dry wood.
Now it is only nooogonry -4q reason for
a moment to perceive that this statement
or belief must be fallacious. Green or
unseasoned wood contains twenty-five per
cent more water than air-dried, or what
is commonly cilled dry or seasoned wood.
Then, in burning one hundred pounds of
green woa, an excess ot twenty-nve
pounds of water must be evaporated. To
evaporate five pounds of water one and a
quarter pounds of wood are required. So
that in getting rid ot the excess of water
in greeu wood, a loss of over six cer cent
is incurred. This will consume one cord
out of every sixteen. This is the direct

higher. It can not well do reduced to
figures, but is sufficiently palpable for all
that It is exhibited in late breakfasts,
badly-cooked dinners, "cakes which are
dough," and bread sodden and indigesti
ble; also, in disturbed tempers and gene
ral domestic unpleasantness, which not
seldom occur in consequence. If the
winter's supply of wood were now gotten
up, sawed and split and piled up under
cover, a certain gain in money or labor
would be made, while a prolific source of
inconvenience and irritation to the females
of the family would be avoided. Hearth
Securing Fodder Corn for Winter.
Many have had an impression that fod
der corn formed a poor food for animals
in winter, but this impression has been, no
doubt, obtained from feeding out imper
fectly cured and musty fodder. Properly
cured fodder corn f Tina a nourishing food,
and milch cows, sheep and horses eat it
witn a reusn.
Fodder corn growing thickly is very
succulent and contains a irreat amount of
juice ; consequently when its growth is
cnecaea Dy cutting, lermentation rapidly
occurs, and unless the utmost care is ob
served, the fodaer will be injured before
one is aware of it On this account, as
soon as cut, it should be disposed in small
quantities in a place, and should never
remain lone unmoved nrton the prounrl-
It can, however, remain a day or two, if
spread tooseiy, without injury, if by in
attention it is left too thick, and heating
rjegins, i s value is gone. After it has
wilted a day. the fodder should be taked
up and placed thinly besides fences, or
what is a very good arrangement, against
horizontal poles placed in forked stakes
set in the ground, the poles coming about
A plan involving less labor, and riro-
bably serving the purpose as welL is re
commended by a correspondent This
consists in setting single stakes, at conven
ient distances, firmly into the ground.
Then tie the corn in small bundles, and
set six or eight of these bundles lichtlv
agiinst the stake, and tie firmly but loose
ly witn a Dana, inis prevents the shocss
from being blown down, and perfect free
dom of air to every part is secured. They
should remain out until thoroughly dried.
When hauled in, the bundles can be un
bound and the corn spread over tops of
mows, and also on head scaffjlds prepared
ior iue purpose.
Many farmers commit an error in allow
ing their fodder corn to become too large
belore it is cut By so doing, the leaves
are more tough and the stalks so large as
io oe reiu?ca Dy siock. Whereas, cut at
the right time when the leaves ara tender
and the stalks succulent the whole will be
eaten up clean. It is a laborious job to
cut up an acre or two of frdder corn with
common corn hook, and many farmers
now use the hand scythe as in moving
grass a little practice being sufficient to
mrow me tops an one way so evenly that
it cn be easily gathered up and bound.
I have been very successful in fcedinc
chicks this year, none of them being trou
bled with croup or other diseases. I am
satisfied that in feeding wheat screenings
as obtained from the mills, they should
always be soaked in water eight or ten
hours, or at least washed, before feediDg,
to soften the white caps, swell theshrunk
en kernels and destroy the poisonous dust
corn meal should always be mixed with
boiling water ior chickens. Onions, tops
as well as bottoms, should be cut fine and
fed daily. They are very stimulating, and
superior to many n.edical preparations re
commended for sick chickens. I believe a
daily feeding of onions tends greatly to
ward off disease.
The truth is, too li'tle attention is paid
to having dry and warm quarters for fowls
generally, though no animal pays better
for good care than fowls. Without it,
even fair results cannot be expected.

Harnessing Horses Correctly.
When harnessed correctly, a strong
horse is a powerful animal; but by in im
perfect adjustment of the gearing, many
strong teams are shorn of half their
strength; and many are often worried
more by an improper fit of the harness, or
by a decidedly bad attachment to the
vehicle they are drawing, than by all the
service they perform. But few teamsters
have ever been taught how to harness a
horse correctly; and fewer still have ever
learned that there is a right way and a
wrong way to hitch a team to a carriage.
When a harness is taken from the shop,
every part should be adjusted to fit the
horse that is to wear it
Back band. The bsck band should be
let out or buckled up, until it will be
neither too long nor too short when the
animal is drawing a loai. Many a good
horse has had a large sore made on his
back (imply because the back-band of the
harness was buckled up too far.
JreecJiing.Th6 bieeching should also
be adjusted properly, so that the horse
will not seem like a man in a boy's coat,
nor like a colt wearing the harness of a
full grown horse.
Collar. The collar should fit as neatly
to the animal's neck as an tasy pair of
shoes set on one's feet Tne collar should
never be so long tint a man can thrust his
arm eas.ly between the neck of the animal
and the lower end of the collar. Many
horses especially old ones when thin
in flesh, require collars so small that they
cannot be put over the heads of the horses
that wear them. It is of eminent import
ance that the proprietors of t-.ams should
see to such minor points, and provide
collars that are open at the top or bottom.
Every horse should have his own collar
and harness as much as every man his
own boots and coat
Lines. The lines are often adjufted in
such a manner that the heads of both
horses are hauled away from each other
so far that the team cannot travel easily.
At other times their heads are drawn too
far inward, toward each other. The lines
should be adjusted so that the heads may
be held just as far apart as the length of
the double whiftletree.
Pole. When a team is attached to a
carriage, or lumber wagon, the breast
straps, stay-chains or neck-yoke should
be so adjusted that the pole or tongue
cannot strike either horse. The tongue
is often allowed to have so much play
that it whargs the arms or shoulders of
the team with terrible force, when tbe
vehicle is bring drawn over rough ways.
The neck-yoke straps, or tongue-chains,
should be drawn up so as to elevate the
tongue between the shoulders, where the
lateral juking or thrusting will be re
ceived by the gearing on the necks of the
animals, rather than against the unpro
tected arms or shoulders of the team.

Though " confirmations strong as proofs of
Holy Writ " and as numerous as the sands on
the sea shore, were produced to prove that
Dr. Pierce, the proprietor of Dr. Sage's Ca
tarrh Remedy, is in earnest and meant what
he says, when he otters $500 reward for any
case of Catarrh which he cannot cure, yet
there would be some skeptics and fogies who
would continue to shout, "Humbug."' "Hum
boo!!" "It cannot be, because Dr. Home
spun says Catarrh cannot be cured." Now,
this Dr. Homespun is the identical good-na
tured old fellow who honestly believes and
persists in declaring that this earth is not
round or spherical, but fiat as a " slap-jack "
and does not tarn over, otherwise the water
would all be spilled out of Deacon Bascom's
mill-pond. But astronomical science has pos
itively demonstrated and proven that Dr.
Homespun is wrong in supposing this earth
to be flat and stationary, and medical science
is daily proving the fact that he is no less
mistaken and behind the times in regard to
the curability of Catarrh. In short, it has
been positively proven that this world move
and that medical science it progrtttive, the
opinion of Dr. Homespun to tbe contrary
notwithstanding. That Dr. Sage's Catarrh

Old Things Have Passed Away.
Thia la at leat true of the old method of treating
the Ion: abated and much abused human body.
It la no looser considered wise to pat a patient
to the torture in order to care him of a disease in
which pain is already undermining the energies
of his system. True science ranges Itself on the
side of nature, and endeavors to assist her in her
fight against disease. This is the province of Uos-
tetter's Stomach Bitters, the most approved tonic
ever advertised in this country. It may be re
commended aa a fall medicine, par excellence;
for tt Is in the fall that billonsness, dyspepsia and
malarious fevers are especially prevalent. Tbe
frame, exhausted by the hea s of summer, is re
laxed and feeble at Its close, and requires, we
may say demand, artificial assistance. Afford it
that assistance in occasional doses of Hostettefs
Stomach Bitters, and the evils referred to may be
escaped. Throughout the far Wert, and on the
steaming alluvial of the Southern rivers, all the
varieties of periodical fever ara probably rife to
day. Had a course of Hoetetter's Bitters been
sommencea Dy ue suiicrers a juouui ago, i. ., oe-
fora the unhealthy season serin, seven-eighths of
them would in all probability be in their usual
health at the present time. So much for want of
forecasts, bo much for not keeping in the house,
and using dally, the best safeguard against
epidemic and endemic fevers.
