"Familiar Talks on English Literature,"
"The family of the poet Pollok, author
of "The Course of Time," have had to
leave the farm on which they have been
tenants more than 200 years."
"It has been well said that no man ever
sank under the burden of the day. It is
when to-morrow's burden is added to the
burden of to-day that the weight is more
than a man can bear. Geo. Macdonald.
"Clovernook," the old home of Alice
and Phoebe Cary, has been purchased, re
stored and in honor of the two poets opened
to the public, by Mr. A. Swift, of Cincin

"A moment's work on clay tells more

During the first six or eight years of child

"Ths late M. Littre had a theory that
man was not a carnivorous animal, and
that light and air were far more essential
than animal food. lie shared the opinion
of Darwin in regard to the origin ot species,
and the wits observed that his puckered
and strongly-marked physiogonomy war

testing that Octavia Bassett is not a typical
American girl nevertheless, and is not so
to be recognized by any who love their
country, and who hope that our girl when
she grows up will live, move, and have her
being in some more useful, more elevating,
more refined, more intellectual occupation
than wearing clothes to astonish rustics and
exhibiting diamonds to dizzalo simpering
fools. Octavia Bassett, we learn before
reading 'A Fair Barbarian,' is a frank, in
dependent, high-minded, well-bred, well
educated, magnificently handsomo young
woman; and she has the ex
quisite satisfaction of breaking a couple of
spoonay but aristocratic Englith hearts,
captivating everybody worth tho winning,
and snubbing, and mortifying everybody
who is snubbish aud suppercilious. But the
novel when read docs not seem to contain
just this sort of superbly successful girl. It
is felt all over the world that the true type
of womanliness bus certain characteristics
which are not liable to be modified by cir
cumstances of geography. Tho woman who

becouse heroism is not universal. The in
tellectual, as distinguished from the in
tensely emotional woman, is not a universal
type, because intellectuality, as disctinct in
a marked way from suHceptibility to emo

her name from a river; the type is local
and rare; the name is used by cowardly
fellows to abuse intellectual women when
they suspect with reason that the intellect'

In choosing the best books it la a good
rule never to read a book of history, bi
ography, science or in any department of
heavier literature once, which is not worth
reading twice. Luther said, "All who
study with advantage, in any art whatso
ever, ought to betake himself to the read
ing of some sure and certain books often
times over." Daniel Webster was distin
guished for his knowledge of English liter
ature, and he repeatedly read his favor
ite authors. He says that in his "boyish
daya there were two things which I did
dearly love, 'a : reading and playing pas
sions which did not cease to struggle when
boy hool was over." In those daya "we had
so ftrvt books thai to read once or twice was
nothing. Wo thought they were all to bo
got by he.irt."

LIMITATION OF MUNICIPAL TAXES.
The supremo court of this state, at the
spring term held at Ottawa, rendered a de
cision upon the subject ot taxation ot towns
and cities which will bo of interest. The
case was that of the town of Spa. land, in
Marshall county, vs. Barnes et al., and in
volved the iimo questions which have been
in issue la this and many other cities of the
state governed under special charters. The
"The act of May 88, 1879, in respect to
taxation by cities and villages, limiting the
power to 2 per cent., does not interfere with
pre-existing limitations in special charters
upon the taxing power, but was intended
simply to provide a uniform limitation m
cases where none theretofore existed, as in
cities, etc., orlganized under the general
The special charter of the town of Spart
land limited the power of taxation for cor
porate purposes to five mills on the dollars
worth of taxable property. Application
was made by mandamus to compel the
town to levy a tax sufficient to pay a judg
ment on account of injuries resulting from
a detective Bidewalk. The town authori
ties averred in their answers, that after de
fraying tho current and necessary expends
of the town, there was nothing left to apply
to the judgment. To this answer the cir
cuit court sustained a demurer and award
ed a peremptory mandamus. Tlio supreme
court held that there was error in sustain
ing the demurer to appellant's answer, and
the cause was remanded with directions to
overrule the demurer to the answer and dis
miss the petition.

A Terrible Night' i Experience.
, Noticing that the sides of the Aum
mit were strewn with boards, bealms,
and debris, my guide explained that
what I saw was the result of the gileat
January gale. He added: ,
"Lata in the afternoon my comrat e,
Sergt M , came to where I was ty
ing abed sick, and said: 'There is giv
ing to bo the devil to 'pay, so I guess v
PIT make everything snug,
"rsy v in the evening the wind had
increased to 100 miles an hour, with
heavy sleet. At midnight the velocity
of the storm was 120 miles, and the ex
Gsed thermometer recorded 24 degrees
low aero. With the stove red, we
could hardly get it aboye freezing in
side the house. Water froze within
three feet of the tire in fact, where
you are now sitting.
"At this time the noise outside was
deafening. About 1 o'clock the wind
rose to 150 miles. It was blowing a
hurrieatie. The wind gathnring t'tpVU
the looso Ice of the mountain, dashed
it against, the house with one coutiuued
roar. I lay wondering how long the
building would stand this, wbon all at
once came a crash. M shouted to
me to get up; but I bad tumbled out In
a hurry on hearing the glass go. You
see, I was dressed to keep myself warm
"Our united efforts were hardly equal
to closing the storm shutters from the
insid but we finally succeeded, though
the lights went out when the wind
camo in, and we worked in the dark."
He rose to show me how the shutters
of thick oak were rhot sncured by an
iron bar, and secondly by strong wood
en buttons tiimly screwed into the window-frames.
"Wo had scarcely done this," re
sumed Doyle, "aud were shivering over
the tire, when a heavy gust of wind
again burst open tho shutters as easily
as if thoy had never been fastened at
all. We sprang to our fccL After a
hard tussle we again secured the win
dows by nailing a cleat to the Moor,
against which one end of a board wits
fixed, using the other end as a lever.
You understand?" I nodded. "Well,
even theu it was all we could do to force
the shuttors back into place. But we
did it. We had to do it.
"The rest of the night was passed in
momentary expectation that the build
ing would bo blown into Tuckerman's
ravine, ami we with it. At 4 o'clock in
the morning the wind registered 186
miles. It had, shifted then from east to
northeast. From this time it steadily
fell to 10 mile.s, al 9 o'clock. This was

"Impossible. The wind would have
lifted us from our feet like bags of wool.
We would have been dashed against

was the quiet reply.

"We did what we could. Each

to which were attached bars of iron, so
that if tho house went by the board we
might stand a chance a slim one of

Buttermilk for Burns.
Joe and Commodore Rogers were
brothers and blacksmiths, They had a
treat reputation for boing practical
jnkers. One day Joo bought an old
fashioned churn for the purpose of
manufacturing their own butter; and
as tho commodore was a widower, and
lived with Joe, all such work as churn
ing naturally full to him. One day,
after supper, the first churning was
got ready, and the commodore was in
vited to churn.
"Hold on," said ho, "till I go down
and get some tobacco."
He went, and while he was gone Joe
did the churning, took out the butter,
and If ft the buttermilk in the churn.
Tho commodore returned, looked at the
churn, took off his coat and remarked:
"Wa'al, old churn, it's you and I,
and here is for ycP'
After churning a couple ot hours, ho
remarked that he "guessed it would be
cheaper to buy butter than to make
"I think so," said Joe, "if you are
going to churn it out of buttermilk."
i The commodore's remarks were un
lit for publication.
A few dnvs after the churning pro
cess, Joe put one end of a small bar of
iron into Ills lorge-nre, gave me nui
lows three or four pumps, and stepped
Info the back shoo. While cone, the
commodore houtod the iron to a black
hont. then changed ends with it, and
stepped out tho front door to watch the
rogross. in came joe. wok up tne

up his burned hand, and roaring with
"Put on buttermilk, Joo. It's good
for a burn!" said the commodoro, as he
made a masterly retreat, amid a shower
of bouquets, composed of hammers,
coal, and borse-shoes.
