SONG OF THE MOSQUITO. A STORY OF THE SHERIFF.
A well trained hotel clerk, who knows
Bis duty rightly, considers Unit the ac
cepted enest in the hotel is is mnch in
his own castle M in his own house, and
will Bet permit him to be knowingly
diMnroea Dy unpleasant or nnaatnonzea
intruders. This, sometimes, is of ser
vice, and prevents disagreeable conse
quences, as will bo seen in the history
here about to be given, the scene of
which was in the Tremont House in
Boston several years ago, and one of the
actors therein, well-known merchant of
Boston, who, over the nom de plume of
" Acorn," used to furnish some of the
liveliest sketches of humor, and sharp
est of dramatic criticisms to the old New
York Spirit of the Timet, whom we
shall designate as Jim Pines ; the other,
a well-known business man of our sister
city of .Portland, whom, for convenience
s ike,, we shall call Short, inasmuch as
he waf short when one of the actors in
the scene we are about to recount.
It chanced one fine evening that a
stranger entered the Tremont -and
addressing himself to the "gentle
manly clerk,", inquired if Mr. Short
of Portland was stopping at the house
"He is," said the clerk, referring to
the register. . -, ... - . ..
" Well, I want to see him ; show me
up to his room, if yon please.'' .
"It yoa . will Bend your card, I will
see if he is " at home," replied the
Tie visitor prodacod a card, which was
handed-to thee bell dot. whom he was
about to- follow up stairs, when he was
restrained by the clerk. - -
" Be . kind enough ." to wait till we
see if Mr. jbhort is in and will see'
7a- . "
The bell-boy returned with word that
Mr. Short fwould see the gentleman to
morrow morning. . --.
" Where's the room ?" said the visitor.
" l li go riglit up myself."
"Excuse me, sir! Mr. Short has al
ready sent word he does not wish to see
you till to-morrow, and I cannot permit
him to be disturbed."
"Well, sir, I think I shall go up
you wui. give me TOO-numDer ot. tne
. room, for I'm the Sheriff, and I intend
to arrest nun. -
At. these words Jim Pines, who was
sitting m a little room behind the key
board, where he had heard all the con
versation, and who is always ready to aid
a man in difficulties Jini, knowing
to be a case ot Jat-at-night arrest to
. force a claim, rose and remarked that
" he was going to see if his supper was
reaay, ana supping inrougn ine auung
hall up to his room, he took from thence
an okl pair of boots and went to Short'
room, where he wag at once admitted.
" Take your valise and duds, old boy,
ana come along witn me.
" What's up, Jim?" asked Short. "
"Not mnch, but the Sheriff will soon
be : so come alone. -
The pair left tne room, locked it be
hind them, and Pines dropped the old
pair . of - boots outside the door, after
wnicn tuey passed over to another wing
otjtiye .house, to Pines' room, where
Short was left ; and the. former descend
ed, where he found the hotel clerk still
engaged m - conversation with the
ShenflV , . , ' " .: :
'I've seen about my supper, and it's
all right, said ne, as he passed the dork
witn a wink. . -.
"I see this room against Mr. Short's
name on the register is 26 ', is that where
you put him?" asked the Sheriff of the
clerk. . "- ""
t'Tes, tat." ' . .
"Then I demand to be shown to that
"All" right, Mr. Sheriff. - Boy, show
the gentleman No. 26."
The unwelcome visitor was conducted
np stairs to the desired room. - There
was, sure enough, number on the door,
pair of txx.ta sitting outside. The Sheriff
looked at his watch.: Half -past nine.
" Humph 1 -goes to bed -early."-- He
knocked ; no response. Knocked a lit
tle louder; still no reply.
" Boy," said he to the bell-boy who
still stood near liim, " is there any door
opening out of this room to the cham
bers either side ?"
" No, sir ; yoa can see for yourself
there's nobody in this one." ,
The Sheriff looked into the unoccupied
rooms on each side, and satisfied himself
that there was no communication, and
then, with a grim smile, took a chair
from one of them and sat down beside
the door of number 26.
."Boy," said the officer of the law,
" do you want to earn a dollar ?"
"Yes, sir," said the waiter, as his eyes
"Well, take this note for mo," said
the officer, as he hastily scribbled
on the back of an old letter, "and
bring me an answer, and you shall
The waiter was off like a shot, and re
turned with an answer, to whom the
other in a whisper explained' the situa
tion. " He's in here, and no way
getting out ; . we can't break in the
door ; you must watch here till mornr
ing, and when he comes out to break
fast arrest him. Boy, there's your dol
lar." Thus left, the deputy settled himself
comfortably down in his chair, and the
Sheriff walked off, satisfied that he had
trapped his bird.
Next morning about eight o'clock he
reappeared. There sat the watchman,
looking a little red about the eye-lids,
and there stood the boots, as when he
left the night before. '
V Any movement, Linxt"
" Not a bit at yet ; quiet as a church
yard." "Ah, ba! Thinks to tire ns out
Go down 2nd get some breakfast, Linx,
and I'll mount guard while you're ab
sent" The deputy-went away, and in half an
an hour returned invigorated and re
freshed, and resumed his post, which he
faithfully held till no.n, when his prin
cipal again made his appearance on the
"What! Not np yet?"
"Not a motion T
The two men . looked at each other
doubtingly. At this moment one of the
chambermaids came along, with broom
and a bunch of keys in hand.
" Got a key that'll open this room?"
said the sheriff.
Tea sir," said the maid. Applying
it, the door flew open, and the two offi
cers rushed in. . -
It was empty. - - -
TThe bed was undressed : a half-smoked
cigar and a newspaper of the day before
lay upon the table, which were all the
traces of its having been occupied. -
From force of babit the deputy guard
ed the door, while his principal looked
into the shallow closet, under the bed,
out of the window (it was forty feet to
the pavement), and had even taken off
the blower at the little fire-place, with
the vague ideas that the man sought
might have vanished, in some mysterious
manner, up the chimney, when his eyes
caught sight of the bell-boy, standing
oueade the door.
" Say, boy, do yon know where Mr.
Short is, who occupied this room."
" Dure, sir, be must be in Portland,
said the boy with a grin, " he left in the
seven o'clock train, and it's twelve now."
The sheriff glanced at his watch. -" ies,
but whose boots are those at the door."
" These," said the boy, taking them
up ; " these be Mr. James Pines boots,
here's his name on the lininpr."
And so it was, and the officers had
never thought to look in them.
" Are vou afraid anyone would stale
'em, that ye sit by 'em so?" asked the
waiter maliciously. ."'..
The sheriff made no answer, but strode
out of the room, sending the boots aside
with a vigorous kick as he passed toward
the staircase. - When he was halfway
down, he was stopped by the voice
of the bell-boy, who, leaning over the
bannisters, called out :
"Sir, iist a moment plaze."
"Well, what is it!" replied the offi
cer, turning up his face.
" Would yon toll me, plaze, how much
it is Mr. Pines pays an hour for the
watchin' av bis boots?"
The sheriff vouchsafed only an indig
nant " humph," and passed on. He and
his deputy had passed out upon the
front steps of the house, when another
waiter, running after him, tapped him
on the shoulder with the message that
the hotel clerk wished to speak with him.
Hastening back with the thought that he
was to hear something respecting hie lost
game, he was met with a bland smile by
tho cleric, who remarked :

SILAS HIVING BEES.
i The old gentleman's name is Silas,
and -that of his - eldest son is George
his .wife's name is Matilda, and his three
pretty daughters are named Helen, Alice
and Susie ; there is a httle Silas, too, and
an older boy whose name is too qneor to
menuon, -1 -. ; ,: - ;
- The bees had alighted in a great
Duncn, as large as a halt-bushel measure,
on the limb of a peach tree n the yard:
A table is placed under the overhanging
iuud, spread witn a clean, white cloth,
ana we mve placed thereon.
, Then one of the boys one that is
good for nothing else -is sent into the
tree with a saw to sever the limb; the
limb comes down slowly and easily, and
the old gent below, dressed in a great
coat, buckskin gloves, cowhide boots
and a bed-quilt tied around his neck and
face, slyly manipulates a twig from the
tree, and in two minutes has safely
coaxed every bee to enter the hive; during
all of which time Matilda and Helen
and Alioe and Susie pound the bottoms
out of just four tin pans; httle Silas does
his prettiest yelling, while tho boy with
the queer name is just old enough and
sharp enough to sup behind the house
and wait for the thing to come to a point
That is the way it ought to have gone
off; but that isn't the way it did. Silas,
the elder, was very comfortably bundled
up for so warm a day, and he had his
suit well arranged, only he forgot to tie
strings around the bottoms of his pants
. The bees had settled on the limbs of
a peach tree, and Silas, when table and
white cloth and hive were all ready,
i " Now, George, grab that old rusty
saw and climb; I guess you can cut that
small hmb off easy enough."
George was 'just home from a six
months term of school, and be felt a
great tenderness for his father, and
would have gone through a patch of
thistles barefoot to please the old gent
and yet he had a particular dread for
the " business end " of a bee, and par
ticularly of such a crowd of them. But
he obeyed, and began to fiddle away
cautiously upon the particular limb.
One little bunch of bees dropped off and
were caged; another, and another small
bunch dropped, and the prospect
seemed good, when suddenly an old
honey-maker, who had been in the busi
ness before, soared upward. George
shut up one eye quick, gave 'one terrific
surge on the old rusty saw, got out of
that tree at one jump, and his anxious
mother caught one glimpse of him as he
flew around the corner of the barn
twenty rods away. s . - :
But poor old Silas! The bees came
down, and he thought' tho bunch as big
as a haystack now. They did not go
into the hive, but they went through
his overcoat and bedquilt as if these had
been only mosquito bars, and they
climbed np tho inside of his jfants legs, and
the old gent danced as he never danced
before; and he slapped his legs as he
never allowed anyone else to slap them,
and his voice towered high above the
clatter of the tin pans and the shrieks "of
nttie ouas as he veiled : - ? --- :
" Throw water on me ! throw water on
me ! soak me, wet me down !"
He rolled three or four times over in
the grass, and sprang up, shouting,
"Slap me I slap me! Can't yon slap
me ?" in the midst of which httle Silas
crept np behind his infuriated papa and
dealt him a lively one with a shingle;
but poor little Silas landed the next
second against the. milk house, for his
pa took him and his shingle for a thou
sand bees, and gently brushed them off.
O, the agony of that three minutes'
jig ! He appealed to his wife.
" Matilda, for heiven's sake, bring me
another pair of breeches, won't you !"
. But these things don't last always,
any more than any other happiness, and
after a few minutes the old gent came
lipping out of the cellar with the breeches
on that Matilda brought him, feeling
mnch easier, bat certainly much fatigued
just as George got back from the barn.
and the boy with the queer name slipped
around the corner of the house. ' Both
boys were very anzions to know bow
matters stood, and asked :
"Did you git em hived, p?
Bnt the old man was too mad to an
swer or even look at his boys, lie
turned to little Silas and said :
Little one, yu meant alt right and
I'm sorry I cuffed you so; next time don't
slap so hard.
Then to his wife, "Matilda, to von I
owe everything. Aooopt my heartfelt
gratitude. We'll take no more stock in
bees. 1 have made up my mind, and it s
settled. May our quiet, peaceful farm
house never be so stirred up again.
Seems to me I never had so much of life

A member of the last Ohio Gen eial
Assembly did this : He bargained for
board at the United States Hotel, at
Columbus, and arranged that he was to
pay 50 cents a meal, and whenever he
waa absent from a meal he was to be
credited that amount. He then hunted
up some cousins in the vicinity, an old
schoolmate, a man who had once courted
his (the member's) wife, and several
other relations, and sponged his living
off of them for the larger part of the ses

A horse's hoof is not, as it appears to
the careless eyes, a mere lump of insan
Bible bone fastened to the leg by a joint.
It is made of a series of thin layers or
eaves of horn, about 500 in number, and
nicely fitted to each other, and forming
a lining to the foot itself. Then there
are as many more layers, belonging to
what is called the "coffin bone," and
fitted into this. These are elastic. Take
a quire of paper, and insert the leaves
one by one into those of another quire,
and you you will get some idea of the
arrangement of the several layers. Now
the weight of the horse rests on as many
elastic springs as there are layers in his

iest tragedies ever enacted m the State.
The Legislature of 1836, the first con

the Union, had met, enacted many laws.
Among other things tne real estate
and State banks were incorporated. In
the fall of 1837 Gov. James a Conway
convened the Ueneral Assembly in ex

was enacted. The bill was introduced

He moved to amend the amendment, by
striking out the word " magistrate" and
inserting "the President of the Beal

The Speaker, Mr. Wilson, was Presi
dent of the Real Estate Bank, and there
had been an ill feeling existing between
him and Anthony for some time. He
considered Mr. Anthony's amendment as
an insult which called for resentment on
his part, then and there. ' He declared
Mr. Anthony s amendment out of order.
and ordered the member from Randolph
to take his seat This Mr. Anthony re

replied the Speaker, who descended from
his stand to the floor, and directed his
steps toward that part of the hall where
Mr. Anthony was standing. The latter
was standing near the first window on
the east side of the hall next to the
Speaker's stand. He advanced toward
Wilson, and both mot about midway
between the Speaker's stand and the
window. Wilson had drawn a bowie-
knife as he advanced.. At thi3 point
Gen. Grandison D. Royston, who was
then a Representative from Hempstead
county, endeavored to get between the
two, and did succeed in holding a chair
between them. Wilson, however, with
his long knife, reached under the chair
and stabbed Anthony to the heart, who
fell to the floor a dead man..

How They Punished Horse-Thieves in
- An old-time sentence has been resur
rected by the York (Pa.) Daily. :It is
a part of the record of York sessions for
1782, when Henry Heiner, for the offense
of horse-stealing, was sentenced '.'to
stand in the pillory ; that he be whipped
as the public whipping-post in Yorktown
with 33 lashes on his bare back well laid
on ; that both his ears be cut off and
nailed to the pillory ; that he be commit
ted to the workhouse there to remain for
the space of six months, and that he pay
the costs of this prosecution and stand
committed until uiis judgment shall be
fully complied with."

points dining the season, and a large amount

Of the delicirtria tjirdV-nest bouo eaten
in Chin etery body has heard bnt every
twdt bas not been privileged to partake
W fliai rridst delectable of all Oriental
dainties. The nests are formed of the
secretions of a species of swallow, called
by natnralistH Minmdo e&culenta, be
cause their dwellirurs are eaten. These
birds are common on most of the islands
of' the Indian Archipelagoes, but their
headquarter -are Sumatra Java, and
Borneo. They build "their nests over
shelving : rocks, in places that : would
seem to be iiiaooessible to man. -'' ' '
But stteh is the demand for this dainty.
tend ad High lis market valuer that hun
dreds of men spend their whole lives in
the perilous work of collecting the nests
from deep caverns, by torchlight, and
overhanging rocks, frightful cliffs, and
precipices, such as make the head grow
dizzy even to think of, ana whence tne
slightest loss of footing must prove fatal
to the adventurer. Multitudes ot outers
are constantly employed in separating
with delicate tweeaers the feathers and
other nnpnriUes from the gelatinous por
tion of the nests, and in washing and
-drying tiicrn ia preparation for the mar
ket, r r t .., ri..K tt.:-; i'i
The bird mates its first nest of gela
tine produced from its own body, with
out any foreign admixture; but when
deprived of this, being unaoie to secrete
a sufficient quantity of the gluten for
another, he mixes ih the second a con
siderable portion of sucks, feathers, ana
dried gfass, thus rendering the nest far
less desirable tor eaioie jrarpuBes.

is ordinarily allowed to retain possession,

Tho first nests collected ore of a pure
creamy whiteness, and bring 'readily
twice their own weight in silver dollars.
These, require little cleansing, only to
be dried and packed : but the second
gathering must be carefully picked over,
and thoroughly washed. The nests thus
losing ' their original lnaciousness,

How to Keep Fresh Meat.
A Sacramento newspaper recommends
the following directions for preserving
fresh meat: As soon as the animal heat
is out of the meat, slice it up for cookinrr.
Prepare a largo jar by scalding well with
hot Salt and water. Mix salt and pulver
ized saltpetre in the proportion of one
tabloRpoonfnl of saltpetre to one tcacup
f ul of salt Sprinkle tho bottom of the
jar with a littlo salt and pepper. Put
down a layer of meat, sprinkle with salt
and pepper the same as just going on
tho tablo, and continue in this manner
till the jar is f ulL Fold a cloth or towel
and wet it in strong salt and water, in
which a little of the saltpetre is dis
solved. Press the cloth closely over the
meat and set it an a cool place, tie sure
and press the cloth on tight as each layer I
is removed, and the meat will keep for
months. . It is a good plan to let the
meat he over night alter it is sliced, be
fore packiog. Then drain off all the
blood- that oozes from it. ' It will be
necessary to change the cloth occasional-1
ly or take it off and wash it first in cold
water, then scald in salt and water as at
first. In this way farmers can have
fresh meat tho year round. "I have
kept beef' says one writer, " that was
killed the 12th of February, until the
21st of Jane, , Then! packed a large jar
of veal in the same way during the dog
Ldays, and it kept six weeks.
ported The other day a Detroit husband went
off on a fishing excursion with a party of
menos. itecurnuig at miauignt ne
pounded on the door and awoke his wife.
As she let him into the hall she saw that
something ailed him, and she cried out :
" Why, Henry, your face is as red as

"And I believe you've been drink

" Whazzermeanby zhat?" he inquired,

"Oh! Henry, your face would never
look like that if yoa hadn't been drink

eyes. " Sposen big bass jump up'n hit
