There's one thing to the ladies I plainly
wish to say,
I'm a m:an of no pretenses ; I'm lifty, if
a day :
I'ml neither gay nor ainiable. I'ni fusy,
and I'pi platin ;
But, girls, you needn't plot for me-al
plotting is in vain. 1
I never see the brightest eyes, and all
their witcherv
Is wasting ammunuition, if its aim is hurt
ing me,;
I never see the reddest lips Iii proof
against all smiles;
I rather think I'm not the man for any
woman's wiles.
I can sew on my own buttons, my stock
ings I can mend,
And women's hands around my room are
not what I intend;
I want no knitted, netted things, no
traveling bags, no wraps,
No slippers and no comforters, no paint
ed plaues, no caps.
I buy the things that I require ; so, ladies.
hear me say,
All such attentions spent on me are sim
ply thrown away
So shake your curls and give your gifts.
bewilder all vou can,.
But just rememnber, if you please, that I
auu not the nmaii.
I've heard there's twenty-one old maids
consider me there "fate'
And clever widows live or six that wish
with me to mate ;
There's pretty school-girls who insist I
"must have had some loss,"
And say I'm so "romantic" when I'm
only tired or cross.
But, ladies, all attentions from this date
I hope will cease ;
The only favor that I ask, is to be left
in peace ;
For I consider one thing sure as any
thing can be- t
I will not marry any girl, and none shall t
marry me.

That's just exactly what he said about a
year ago,
Now, if you could but see his rooms, they

Of netted things, and knitted things, I
and painted plaques and screens, a
Of photographs of famous men, and
Beauty's living queens ;
While on the hearth-stone sits his wife
she's sweet and good, I know,
And if you tell him of the words he t
said a year ago, t
He answers you, without a blush, "Oh, a

-ED's DRAWER, in Harper's Magaziue. I
Prof. Tyndall suggests that, just as
the soil may be so effectually robbed
of some essential ingredient by one a.
bundant crop as to be incapable of pro,
ducing another, so in the human eya.
tem a parasitic disease may so com.
pletely exhaust the blood of some in, t
gredient necessary to the growth and
propagation of the parasite that the
produ.tion of a second crop in fatal r
>r considerable quantity may be im
ossible. It would thus appear that
protective vacination or inoculation
is simply the introduction into the d
blood of weakened and comparative
ly harmless disease germs to con- I
smre the material which might be
ome food for similar germs In a

ouis in 1871, according to Mr. c, J
Shaler Smith, overturned a locomno
tive, exerting a force of no less tha~n a
93 pounds per square foit. At St. I
Charles a jail was destroyed In 1877, I
the pressure required being 84 poundsa
per square foot. At Mar~sbt4eld, in I
1880, a brick mansion was leveled,a
the force neceisary being 58. pounds I
per square foot. iBelow these extra

us Candy pullings are a nuisance, but
ng I suppose we are to have them. I
rl have now arrived at that age and
ar frame of mind that I submit to any
-a- thing-anything to plhase the chil
dren. And so when they got their
ml mother's consent the matter was all
ar arranged and the company invited
,o without consulting me. There was a
m.- spare room in the house and as I had
of some writing to do, I adjourned my
ie self there to have a quiet time. While
ot I was ruminating before the fire and
,- su,oking the pipe of peace and tran
qnility, the young folks began to
gather and, before I knew it, the
young ladies were ushered into my
.room as a reception room, and I was
kindly informed that I would have to
Id vacate. With a sigh of resignation I
es retired and poked around generally.
r 1 wish I had a room-a room of my
k- own-and Mrs. Arp says she wisbes
Y. she had a room-a room of her own.
ti But she can't have one. She never
i- will have one, for children and grand
or children would be lost and I would
L+ be lost. She can't slip off to Nabor
e Freeman's but what a dozen want to
ag know where she is and when she is
Ys coming back. The dog and the cat
=U follow her. No, she will never have a
'- room to herself.
of But I found good company at the
p- candy pulling and bad a good time
r anyhow, for I do love these naborly
et visits. I love to see the young folks
rt, happy, and I love to discourse poli.
>r- tics and ciops and naborhood news
.n with the older ones. But this candy
ic business is not all serene, one of the
ig girls burned her hand dreadfully and
ie is still carrying it in a bandage. And
u then it is so messy, as Mrs. Arp says.
tl The children get candy all over the
I floor, and the tables and bureau. It
1- sticks to my stockings yet when I
' get ready to go to bed. It melts and
r. smokes on the hearth. The dishes
are all daubed and hard to clean up
ie again. The door knobs and dipper
at handles are sticky, and they keep
d sticky as long as the candy lasts. But
every pleasure has its draw-back. Af
e ter every dinner the dishes are to be
e washed. After every repose the bed
t has to be made up. We ride and
e drive and then the horse has to be
d put up and fed. We dance to sweet
music and have to pay the fiddler.
We go on a picnic of an excursion
and come home tired and weary. Ev
ery pleasure seems to be followed by
pin or by trouble, just as the night
follows the day. But still it Is right,
1g for it is natnie, We live in contasts
r 0d enjoy them. Suppose we do
bunt all day and find no game. Hope
is a good thing, and it was one of the
questions we used tQ debate when I
was a boy, "whether the pursuit or
othe possession gave the most pless
ure.'' I took the af#rmative one time
wih Iwas pursuing rmy sweetheart
eihlove and hope and devotion, and
I argued ray side with earnest elo
o,~uence. But when I lost her and an
ote*,io got possession, 1. flop
*pad over* to the other side, In a year
or so I recovered and piursued Mrs.
Arp with fear an tre;pbling, and
when I possesed her I was happy.
The pursuit is a. liyely, interesting
d andI uncertain businees, where a
tsweet ',ounig maiden is concerned,
d but the p,ossession $s solid and sure
o and never gives out. ou
~.We had a frolic atorcountry'
Sacademy last week. The night you
were all jubilating in Atlanta we were
q1uietly enjoying Qurselves near our
Shomes with our wives and children.
it The ladies, God bless them, ingited
rh us to a supper in the academy, a
'u. splen4id supper, a feast of good
y. tbings with no headache ip thepm My
Sfolks killed a turkey and baked some
3. bake og the peighbozs did likewih-e,
y and they ggt Qysters somnewhe e and
at long~ table. were spread and giga~ned
id with ggod things and we thought it
n. was all a~ free show pntell we got
ae there and 'found a door-leeper and
had to pay to go in. Th~eu they tin
isheA up with bills of fare, and to
everything there wyas a price, but we
couldent back out, for the sight and
-the savory smell provoked en appe
tite. After I had made them a little
of speech, which I had prepared for the
Lie occasion, one kind lady manager con
Lie ducted me to a seat and said I was
be her gnest and the choipest viands
3d should cost mne nothing; with this
- *ssurance i partook amagingly and
le feast'ed to m,y entire content, and
ot about that time another kind lady
Q presented me iny bill and called for
ry a dollar-a whole dolls~r, and said I
had oysters twice and turkey twice.
r- I paid it with cheerful alacrity, but
n somehow I don't appreciate so many
or managers on such occasions. Never
to theles:, I had the honor of being one
es fair lady's guest even though I was
id another's victim, Then I paid for
e-r Mr's. Arp and the children and tho't
p- I was done, but they had a fish pond
be in one corner, behind a curtain, and
is the children wanted to drop a line
a- just to see what they would catch
a well that cost some dimes and next
n, came a raffe for a fine, large eghe, and
ly they all wanted achance, and Mrs.
L59 4rp took a notion she could throw
a-* 18 with three dice, and shore enough
she threw four and retired with ma.
bo troniy dignity and said she didn't
,* want the cake nohow. Well, the show
as went on, and on untell they got all
er our change and had enough money

Sfolks about a danee, just alittle
edAtic t,o wind un 'on, but they said
"no", and they said it like the
meant it, and I reck-on they did, anr
the young folks surrendered and said
well, if we can't dance we can have
a little twistifieation. Before any,
body knew what that meant the flu
was cleared and the mnsic began and
the twistification, too, and they twis
ted ali around and about, and cross
el over, and hands all round, and
Ciangild p trtners, and promenade all,
and parly voo Fiaricais, and I don't
know what all, and the solemn trus
tecs looked on with enjoyment, and
were satisfied because it was only a
twistification. Well, it was a goodh_
frolic and no f.eliigs hurt. and we
all Went howe happy. but an fal scarce
of change. GCov. Biown has got some
preferred stock il our school h,onse.
WYe preferred his money to anybody's
for he had more of it. if we had had
hin there, with his swallow tail coat
on, we would have preferred some
wore. When he gives us two bun
dred dollars more we'll name it the
Brown institute, but not till then.
The name is for sale, but we are not
going to do like those Dalton folks
and name our sclhool for him before
we get the moji v. They have never
got any yet. Gov. Brown don't pay
for honors when he can get them fur
nothing. Old father D.obbin is our
rich man up here, and we are going
to try him for an endowment and
call it the Dobbins old field school.
He likes old-field schools, but he has
no use for colleges or seminaries or
universities. He says he has watched
them for forty years, and every year
they turn out a splendid crop of ele
gant, high-strung vagabonds, with
but few exceptions. But education is
the Amejican watchword now, and

One of the manifestations of the
impatience of our people is that when
one "run's down," as the saying goes,
instead of taking. constitutional rem
edies that slowly but surely repair
waste, to build up the system, the
practice is to seek violent and pow
erful incitements to strength, which
only prove delusive, and do more
harm than good. Tue business man
who at last finds that he is losing vi
tality, and that he has sacrificsd
health to greed, endeavors to make
atonement in a day or, at furthest, in
a week, by heavy doses of quinine, or
by brandy, and the young man who
has degenerated by sloth or more
active vices, overdoes the exercise of
the gymnasium in the vain effort to
regain health h, a coup cretat. Ever
the same story of national impatience;
the feverish alacrity to ruin the phys.
iqne by late hours, tobacco, rapid eat.
ing and diveis dissipations, and the
absurd ael 1 to restore its functions
while a locomotive is naking its dis
tanee between New York and Chica
go. Nature has ways of her own, and
even the enterpFising Yankee can
not wake an oak~ ti ee grow to ma
turity in a~ week, or put such a ms
chine ce the human body in perfect
workiing ord'.er in that time, after it
has onoe been abused and utterly
deranged. Even the wealthy invalid
cannot make good the dr-afts he has
drawn too often atnd too ra&hly, by
the magic spell of a Boropsan tour.
The exhausted body makes its lam
eintatiop heard in~ a French boule
vard as w'eil as at home, and there is
no curative property in a foreign rai!
wav car.
Yr-ars of transgreson need at the
least months of expiation, and the
man or the woman wbo lays the foon
dation of restored health in six
months does well. Meanwhile the
simple remedies, air, water and whole
some food, sleep, judicious exercise.
and time to back them, will be fruit
foi of result. Be patient and be of
good cheer; don't use your sub
stance on qnack nostrums; study the
matter of diet, the efHcao,y of water
and a coarse crash towelj the venti
lation of yonr slee.ping chamber; the
value of the dumb:bells, and for toDic
or alterative the superiority of the
mineral spr-ings to all the dr-ugs you~
can buy. Set your peroid for a gene
ral improvement is mi onths ahead
inst&ad~ of si; days, and you will es,
cape the discouragement and the
despair which beset the impatient
Amer-ican when he finds that his
health has run down.

A .Go.E TRTH.--The .Boston
Taenscript, a dear old paper that, we
regret to say, we receive never often
er than semi-occasionally, frequeitly
comes out with some- agricultural in
formation that fills us with .joy, and
makes us wish to sell out our brown
stone fronts and miscellaneous tene
ment-houses, atnd move Aiht tit in
the country, for the purpose of set
ting down and becoming the brother
of the golden-rod and the good-natur
ed mule. The Transcript; in a little
article entitled "Bees in Orchards,''
remarks:- .
"It is said a larger crop of :apples
is raised when a hive of bees is- sta
tioned in the orchard.'.
Correct, Benvolio, correct thou ki't,
thou onseemly caitiff. And the crop
of apples would be larger still' if'the
bees were yellow-jackets, with sabres
sfficiently long and sharp to sting
the small boy through .the hat or
boots. Bees are very good to make
the apple-crop large. independent of
the Transcripts reasons.which incluide
a lot of allusions to "pollen,'' "pistils,"
"hybrids"' and other things used
around an orchard. But yellow jack
eta are better still, and a Siberian
bloodci,nd beats evei-thryelow
icets. Because the bioodhound is
evrywhere at once, and gets in.his
work without prov'ocation; and- t hat
makes the apple-cropTarge and the
small boy d;op small,
