A LIVELY TIME 13 XOSTH CARO.
n ..-..- LIXA, ' .
- TW Daily News, published at Ral
eigh, C, "devotes a half column or
so to au amusing story. " It tells of Low
a jouds mau went courting, but was
seriously disturbed by the sudden ad
vent of a bull while all the family
were quietly enjoying their supper.
Here ia the narrative just as we find
, "Wednesday night during the hard
rain, one of our nice young salesmen
- quietly sat at the tea table beside his
intended at the residence of her father,
a worthy citizen of the Eastern Ward.
All were seated at the table with heads
bowed down receiving the blessings of
Mr. , when their peace and quiet
of mind was disturbed in a measure
more ridiculous than refined, and more
perilous thau amusing to all concerned.
As if nrnmntd liv th devil himself a
neighbor's bull, uninvited, had paid a
visit to the cow-pen. and back-yard of
the house on the same evening, and in
making free and. .easy with things in
general and helping himself to what-
cr r.m within hia rc.irh nifl head
became entangled in a basket, and if
the reader ever saw a bull with his
head fastened in a bucket or basket he
need not be told of the antics he will
cut up and nothing but a doe with a
horse fly tied to its tail can begin to
equal it Hardly had "amen" been
said, when a tremendous bang at the
door set it wide open and in rushed a
big surly bull with his head buried in
a bushel basket . The dining room
being in the rear of the house and on
a level with the ground, his bullship
found no difficulty in making his grand
entry, and with a powerful surge he
upset the table, breaking most of the
crockery, turning over the pot of red
hot coffee in the lap of our young
friend, the salesman, and capsized the
lamp thereby throwing the room in
utter darkness. Things now presented
a serious aspect and sudden destruc
tion threatened all in the room ; at this
stage of the game no time was to be
lost in reflecting; all had to act
promptly and take such a part in the
tight as his or her judgment might de
Our brave young hero, like a sen
sible man as he is, seized the bull by
the tail and held on with death-like
tenacity, while the father of the fami
ly firmly grasped him by the horns.
The bull began to bellow, the ladies
shrieked and screamed, and the young
.man cried Police! Police! at the top
of his voice. This unusual noise and
excitement brought. in the yard dog,
who was slow, in making his appear
ance as he had to drag behind him a
heavy block and chain but when he
arrived he went for our young friend
like a "heathen Chinee" and fastened
his teeth in the seat of his pantaloons.
The young lady with an eye keen for
the safety of her intended, pounced on
the dog like a hungry tiger on a bleat
1 ou can now see the state of affairs.

ing the horns, the bull in the middle,
the young man swinging to his tail,
the dog growling and shaking him by
the pants, the young lady with her
lily white hands choking the fierce
bull dog, while her mother with a fit
of hysterics lay on the floor as still as
a corpse and but for her breathing
one would have taken her for dead.
Had things lasted five minutes longer,
there would not hare been one left
alive to tell the sad tale.

mad or excited, has more muscle than
discretion, ran in prepared for any
emergency, as she could not imagine
why there was so much noise and con
fusion. With a lk'htwood torch in
one hand and the kitchen shovel in
the other, she commenced business in
earnest ; and you had better believe if
over a bull was known to pray, it was
on that dark and rainy night. She
made the fur fly and the louder he
bellowed the harder and faster she put
on her blows. His exit was quick and
sudden, aud with one bound, he sprang
to the middle of the yard, leaned the
high palines like a deer, and has not
since called again. ;
Nie then turned her attention to the
dog, and in' less than no time made
hi 111 let no his hold and sent him yelp
ing under the house.
Aunt Sally now became master of
the situation, and by kinds words and
gentle smiles partially restored the
house to order ; and say "old master
you take the youdg folks back to the
palor and I will rouse up mistress,"
which she readily did by .cold snriuk
linsand the use of the smelling bottle.
Hut our youg friend did not tarry
lone, as between the bite of the doe
and the hot coffee he did not feel much
in a courting mood, begsed to be ex
cused and left in the drenching rain.
Miss Magrnder. j
We shall never forget that evening
wc spout at Maeruder's, years ago. We
admired Miss Magruder, and we went
around to sec her. It was summer
time, aud moonlight, and she set upon
the piazza. The carjienter had been
J here that day, gluing up the rustic
chairs on the Hrch, so we set on the
step, in front of Miss Magruder, where
we could gaze into her eyes and drink
in her smiles. It seems probable that
the carpenter must have upset his glue
pot on the spot where we sat, for after
enjoying Miss Magruder's remarks for
a couple of hours, and drinking seve
ral of her smiles, we tried to rise for
the purpose of going home, but found
that we were immovably fixed to the
step. Then Miss Magruder said:
'Don't be in a hurry," and we told her
we believed we wouldn't. Theconvcr
saliou had a sadder tone after that, aud
we set there thinkine whether it would
be better to ask Miss Magruder to
withdraw while we disrobed aud went
home in Highland costume, or whether
wo should urge her to warm the jKiker
so that we could thaw ourselves out ;
or whether we should give one terrific
wrench aud tlicn ramble down Mho
yard backward. About midnight Miss
Magruder yawned and said she believed
she would po to bed. Then we sud
denly asked her if she thought her fa
ther would have any objection to lend
ing us his frout steps lor a few days,
because we wanted to take them home
for a pattern. We think Miss Magru
der must have entertained doubts of
our sauity, fr she rushed in, called
her father and screamed. Magruder
came down with a double barrelcl shot
f!iiu. Then we explained the situation
in a whisper, and lie procured a saw
aud cut out the piece of ste.s to which
we were attached. Then we went
home wearing the patch, and before
two o'clock cursed out our young love
f.ir Miss Maurnder. We never called
attain and she threw herself away on a
dry goods man. There isa melancholy
satisfaction in recalling these memories
of youth and reflecting upon the iti-
ituence of clue uiK'ii the emotions of
the hutnau heart.
A Temperance movement of great
breadth and cDieiency is now eoinc on
under the sanction and protection of
thciatholic Church of this country.
Societies have been formed in all di
rections, the members of which prom
ise to abstain from all intoxicating
drinks, to prevent as much as possible,
by advice and example, the sin of in
temperance in others, and to discoun
tenance the drinking habits of society,
aud the clergymen of the various or
ders are lending the whole weight of
their teachings aud labors to push on
the reform. Already tens of thous
ands of men have joined these socie
ties, and the number is daily increas
ing. Cit this Orr. A tea made of
chestnut leaves drank iu the place of
water, will cure the most obstinate

MY CITY LOVE.
BY JOHX. W. PKITEK.
My love, she liven in yonder town,
Sbe thinks me a boor, she thinks me a
Bat what care I for smile or frown,
Or whether the world goes up or down. ..
She came from her home In tli e beautiful
To see the rough uncultured clown ;
With dainty foot and silken gown
To bring the royal farmer down."
Such her boast to them who own
The tales concealed behind the throne,
But, lady fair, to you be known,
He bends the knee to God alone.
Nor e'en love's ectatlc trance' - .
. Bauds he to witching beauty's glance,
If or the world's envenomed lance, ,
Nor ought that moves, nor ought that
For swiftly the years are sweeping o'er
Carrying ns on to the uuseen shore,
And all we learn from human lore
Are the solemn words We return no
Soon, thyself, so strangely blent
With dust of earth for some Intent,
Will leave thine woruout tenement
And gladly fly from banishment.
But music and song and posey,
And all the minds wlerd imagery
Are gems whose worth can never be
Weighed in the scale of mortality.
A lovely form he likes Jo see,
But an empty casket yours may be,
Ho like the fruit of the worthless tree
That grow on theshoresof thesilentsea.
But if love of God and human kind,
If justice, truth and money shine
Like gems that light the secret mine,
Beneath that snowy breast of thine,
If that which fits the tiger's lair
Finds not a secret lodgement there
He'll glvejhee all that browso fair
Can claim for virtues now so rare.
Nor think of the vain or sneering boast
That may only have been from fancy tost
Vet trifling words have often cost
Hot burning tears o'er loved and lost.
And now we've strolled through forest
And talked of the changes that man has
And listened to music that God has said
Shall be heard In the deep wood's shade.
Deep In the glen where seldom stirred
The maple leaf, or ever was heard
The voices of men, a spirit word
Came from a beautiful dovelike bird,
That high on a swinging branch above
Kept singing of truth, and Joy, and love,
Kept swinging, and singing, his Joy to
In Heaven isGod and God Is Love.
But from high on a tree leafless and bare
Came the warning words " Beware, be--
ware! - ......
The form thou see'st so lovely thpre
Is not what it seems, beware, beware!"
And the owlet's wild, wierd monotone,
From that blasted tree, his airy throne.
Awakened a voice to wisdom known.
And ever will tread life's paths alone,
My love is fair as fair can be .
But then she's blind she cannot see
The glories of the forest tree,
And much that is near and Uearto me.
Hue loves not the tints of the fallen leaf,
Nor yet the harvest's golden sheaf
Nor deem the roar of old Ocean's reaf,
Could rouse her heart to joyjor grief.
I called her to see the Auroral Light
That rose and fell In the beauteous night,
Like spirits winged so clear and bright.
But failed to rouse her dormant sight
No joy for her In the morning days.
Or the mountain's brow in the sun's
Or the valley's depths in the moon's clear
Or Indian summer's golden haze.
The glories of earth and air anl sea
All seem made for her and me.
And yet she's blind as blind can be.
Although so fair so fair to see.
If nature no Joy to her can give
Tis not with her for me to live.
'Two a Id be all to hate or all forgive,
And not forme the alternative.
But she's so fair as fair as the May,
Around her mouth the passions play.
And in her eyes the light of day
Might luro the soul from Its God away.
Oh, why does nature so seldom enfold
Iu a beautiful form a beautiful soul T
But the ways of God we can't control.
And what we see Is not the whole.
Perhaps when the soul on its wings may
To the pearly gates in the azure sky,
Much that is dark, and deep, and high.
May lose its air of mystery.
No doubt the glass through which we see
Oft throws a vail of secrecy
Oe'r many things that then may be
t'lear as day to the spirit free.
Oh God! when Thou in thine own good
Will gather us home to a grander clime,
When the naked soul lu faith sublime .
.Stands ready to cross the mystic line,
Or shudders and shrinks on the silent
Of the shadowy, dim, mysterious land.
Little we'll think of the tapered baud,
Or the jewels that shine iu the circling
Little of the city's vain excess.
Little of the country's awkwardness.
Little of her pride her words express.
When they sneer at the farmers' bash ful
ness. But she's so fair, as fair as the May,
And has the proud imperial sway
That in the pre-historicday
Led ev'n the Sous of God astray.
My Love has gone back to the town again,
Butleavlng the heart she said she'd win,
She's now lu the church among the child
ren of men.
He, wit h his God in the silent glen.
And though his maimer be coarse and
And though his faith le wild and crude
And though he love wlerd solitude,
Still may not his heart be partly good.
Perhaps she'll sneer, perhaps she'll frown
At the manner of him slieoHllKllieclou,
But little he'll care for sneer or frown.
Or whether her steps go np or dowu.
South Bcud, I lid.
; i . . - Oat as a Manure.
A Kentucky farmer writes: I have seen
frequent inquiries how to reclaim - old
and worn lands. A quick and cheap
plan istosowthe laud in oats as early as
you can in the spring; as soon as ripe
plow under : keen off all stock and you
will have a tremendous full growth of
oats, flow them uuuer m Uctober,
or, if South, the first of November;
then sow rye, graze in the spring and
feed down ; when ripe jdow under,
aud yiru will see one of the finest rye
fields you ever saw ; or, if you wish,
sow clover on the rye the first spring ;
it is very effectual and cheap. I saw
the above tried in Tennessee when I
was a boy j the laud was so worn that
the oats did not exceed knee-high ;
they were plowed under when ripe, aud
asrain in November. The land was
planted in corn the next year aud made
a large yield ; it was before the days of
clover. 1 have tried it repeatedly
siucc with good success.
Red Cedar Hedges.
A correspondent says there is no
timber for hedges comparable to the
red cedar. It will do well iu any soil
with a little care at first It is lone-
lived, and grows very rapidly. To
propagate it, irather the seed wheu ripe
and prepare the ground as for drilling
card en seeds, riant the seed three
quarters of an inch deep, slijihtly ma
nuring tho soil to force the growth at
the start. The seed is abundant in
Maryland, and the correspondent be
lieves it will be valuable iu many Mates
where hedge trees are becomingscarce.
. The number of stars visible to the
naked eye in the entire circuit of the
heaven Has been usually estimated at
about G.tMlO. An ordinary ora lelass
will exhibit something like ten times
that number. A comparatively small
telescope easily shows 3100(1, while
there are telescopes in existence with
which, there is reason to believe, not
less than 25,000,000 stars are visible.

For restoring to Gray Hair ita
natural Vitality and Color. .
which ia at
jling the hair.
Sllt toon re
Lr or gray hair
to iU original
color, with the gloss and freshness of
youth. Thin hair is thickened, fall
ing hair checked, and baldness often,
though not always, cured by its
use. Nothing can restore the hair
where the follicles are destroyed, or
the glands atrophied and decayed ;
but such as remain can bo sayed by
this application, and stimulated into
activity, so that a new growth of
hair is produced. Instead of fouling
the hair with a pasty sediment, it
will keep it clean and vigorous. Its
occasional use will present the hair
from turning gray or falling o9j
and consequently prevent baldness.
The restoration of vitality it gives
to the scalp arrests and prevents
the formation of dandruSj which is
often so uncleanly and offensive.
Free from those deleterious sub
stances which make some prepara
tions dangerous, and injurious to the
hair, the Vigor can only benefit, but
not harm it. If wanted merely for
a HAIR DRESSING, nothing else
can be found so desirable. Contain
ing neither oil nor dye, it does not
soil white cambric, and yet lasts
long on the hair, giving it a rich,
glossy lustre, and a grateful perfume.
