A TALE OF ODD-FELLOWSHIP.
A TALE OF ODD-FELLOWSHIP. —OR;—
' A Lodge of tbs I. 0. 0. F.. tt Woodi
town, determined to have their lodge
room done up clem at.d nice, it wit un
animously resobed that Mrs. K
ihould te employed to do the job.
After the meeting adjourned, the
Guardian, ho knew the inquisitive
characters! Mrt. K . procured a bil
ly goat and placed him In a clout which
is kept as a reservoir for the secret
things. He then informed the lady of
the wishes of the lodge, and requested
her to come early the next morning es
he would then be at leisure to show ber
what was and w hat wai not to be done.
Morning came and with it Madame
K with ber brooms, brushes, pails,
tubs, &c, prepared and aimed for the
job, and fouud the guardian wsiting for
Now, uiadame, (aid he, I will tell you
what we want done, and how we came
to employ you, The brothers said it
was difficult to get any body to do this
job and not be meddling, with secrets in
thai closet: we have lost the key and
cannot find it to lock the door. las
aured them that you could be depended
'Depended on!' said she. 'I guess 1
can. my poor, dead and gone husband,
who belonged lo the Free Masons or the
Anii'Masous, I dou t know which, used
to tell me all the secrets of the con
cams, and tvheu he showed me the marks
of the gridiron made when he was iui
tiated, and told me how they flied poor
Morgan, I never told a living soul to
this day; if nobody troubles your closet
to fiud'your secrets tilT I do, they'll lay
there till they rot they will.
I thought so,' said the guardian, 'anJ
I want you to commence in that corner,
and give the hole room a decent clean
. ing, and as I have pledged my word and
honor for your fidelity to promise, now
don't go in that closet!' and then lei t the
lady to herself.
No sooner had she heard the souud of
his feel on the last step of the stairs
than she exclaimed, 'Don't go in that
closet! why, what un earth can there be
in that closet! I'll warrent there is a
big gridiron, or some nonsense just like
the Anti Masons, for all the world, I'll
be bound. I will just take one peep,
end nobody will be any the wiser, as I
can keep it to myself.'
Suiting the action to the word, she
stepped softly to the forbidden closet
turned the button which was no soon
er done than Ba ah-ab! went the billy

which came nigh upsetting ber ladyship.
Both started for the door, but it was
filled with the implements of house
cleaning, all were swept clear from their
position down to the bottom of the
The noise and confusion occasioned
by such unceremonious coming down
stairs drew half the town to witness,

goat and pile of pails, tubs, brooms and
brushes in the street.
Who should be first om the spot but
that rascally door keeper, who after re
leasing the goat, which was a cripple
for life, and uplifting the other rubbuh
that bour.d the good woman to the earth,
anxiously inquired if she had been tak
ing the degrees?
'Taking .he degrees'!' exclaimed our
lady, 'if you call tumbling from th
top to the bottom of the stairs, with
the devil jumping after you, taking
things by degrees, I have them, and if
je frighten folks at b.d as ye have me,
and hurt 'em to boot, I'll warrenl they'll
nuke as much nose as I did.'
'1 hope you did not open the closet,
madam).' said the door-keeper.
Open the closet? Eve eat the apple
she was forbidden! If you waul a wo
man to do anything, tell her not to do
it, and she'll do it, sartin.'
'I could not stand the temptation.
The secret was there 1 wanted to know

'Regular nay'.' exclaimed the lady,
and do you suppose 1 am going near
that tarnal place again, and ride that
critter without bridle or ladies sad
die? No, never! I don't want nothing
to do with the man that ridea it. I'd
look nice perched on a billy goat, if it
was a goat, wouldn't l No, never! I'll
never go nigh it again, or your hall nath--er;
if 1 can- pievent it, no lady shall
ever join ihe Odd-Fellows. Why, I'd
soonerbe a Free Mason, and be broiled
on a gridiron as long as fire could be
kept under it, and pulled from a garret
to cellar, with a halter, in pair of ok
breeches and slippers, just as my poor
dear, dead and gone husband used to
tell me they sarved him, and he lived
over it too, but I never could live over
such an other ride as I took to-day,
You may rest assured I ahall never see
a goat but what I shall think of the Odd
Fellows and the degrees.
Not long since, aa eastern man
w hile on bis war to Boston, was stoo
ped on the highway by s robber, and re-
questea to nana over bis money, or
have his brains blown out. O!" i.id
the traveller, quietly, "blow away! it's
better to go to Boaton without brains
than without money."
Peaches. A well known dealer in

Men in uch stations as many who volun

Cherry Pectoral, do not wantonly trifle
with, or distort facts, nor oveuttuto their con
victions. Judge then, whether this is not the
medicine to trust when you must have relief
for the throat or luims; indue too, whether ev

Dr. J. C. Avrn,
Sir The Cherry rectonil is much inqui
red after. Several of nor h'.-st Physicians
have used it, three of lliem in their own enje
and always with ilie happiest effects. Th
numerous patent medicines always before
them, lead to incredulity in regard to every
new remedy; it i'only nfler undoubted
evidence ol value in any artii le.ihat anything
like a generul confidence can be excited. ,
The unrivalled excellence of this combina
tion ol agents, (in lheClirry Pectoral) pro veil
bryoud cavil by repealed tr'ml under their own
observation, hua compelled medical men tt
proclaim abroad its usefuliies. It is beyond
all doubt the be st general remedy we have fo t
the Pulmonary Allectionsof thij climate, a t
the same time sedative and expectorant a
rare combination of properties.
In hope that it will prove its own reward,
I subscribe myself.
Respectfully your olit. servl..
