In 1453 a prophet wrote these
prophetic lines :
"In twice two hundred years the bear
The crescent shall asaftil,
But if the cock and bull unite,
1 The bear shall not prevail.
But look in twice un years again,
Let Islam know and fear,
The cross tiiall wax the crescent wane,
Grow pale and disappear."

There is a society in New York
styled the "Fat Men's Association,
the condition of membership being
the possession of a body of not less
than 200 pound s weight. This
society wa formed in 18G9, and has
grown to the number of 300 individ
nals. They have an annual clam
bake, which was recently held at
South Norwalk. There were baked
f&r the visitors 110 bushels of clams
and oysters, 300 chickens wrapped in
cloths and laid above the clame. 400
lobstprs, GOO pounds of blue' fish
wrapped in cloths, three barrels of
sweet potatoes and two barrels of
white potatoes, and. to top all, 1000
ears of green coi n in the husks. The
victor who bore off the palm as the
heaviest person was a young man of
twenty-three, who weighed 399
pounds. Perhaps after the dinner
he might have tipped the scales at
400. ' ' . , ,
Raising Articles for Hogs.
Select a field that you do not in
tend to use for any other purpose,
for, when once planted it is difficult
to get artichokes out of the land. It
will produce plants from seed left in
the ground. If; it were turned to
pasture of course . the plants would
soon die out ; but it is better to
fence off a portion, plow it up and
plant it iu artichokes, and every fall
let the hogs into the artichok lot to
feast upon the tubers. Late in the
spring plow and barrow the lot, keep
the hogs out till fall and there will
be a crop of artichokes again to feed
the hogs the following winter. If
before frost the stalks are cut, cured
and stacked up, they will furnish ex
cellent forage for horses, cattle and
sheep. They can be dug like pota
toes and fed to hogs cooked, which is
an improvement. Plant in rows
three feet apart, and fifteen inches
apart in the row, and run a cultiva
tor between the rows a few times in
the spring to destroy the weeds.
The more tender and delicate the
blossoms of joy, the purer must be
the hand that culls them.
The only praifeworthy indifference
is an acquired one ; wo must feel as
well an control our passions. '
. A ol Wife.
The good wife is none of your
dainty dames who loves to appear in
a variety of suits, every day new ;
as if a gown, like a stratagem in war,
were to be used but once. But our
good wife sets np a sail, according to
the keel of her husband's estate, and
if of high patronage, she doth not so
remember what she was by birth,

Who la a Gentleman ?
A gentleman is a person not mere
ly acquainted with certain forms and
etiquette of life, easily and self-possessed
in society, able to speak and
act and move in the world without
awkwardness, and free from habits
which are vulgar and in bad taste.
A gentleman ia' something beyond
this ; that which lies at the root of
eveYy Christian virtue. It is the
thoughtful desire of doing in every
instance what others should do unto
him. He is constantly tliinking, not
indeed how he may give pleasure to
others for the mere sense of pleusing,
but how he may avoid hurting their
feelings. When he is in society he
scrupulously ascertains the positiou
and relations of every one with
whom he comes in contact that he
tuny give to each his due honor, his
proper position. He studies how he
mny avoid touching in conversation
on any subject which may needlessly
hurt their feelings how he may ab
stain from illusions which may call
up a disagreeable or offensive associ
ation. A gentleman never alludes
to, never even appears conscious of
any defect, bodily deforraily, -inferiority
of talent, of rank,- of reputa
tiontin the person in whoso society
he is placed. He never assumes any
superiority to himself never ridi
cules, never sneers, never boasts,
never ; icukcs n . diep'y ot us own
power, or rank, or advantages such
as is implied in habits or trick,") or
inclinations which may be offensive
to otheis. ,

A Wrong ftjmlem.
It is no sign of gentility to be uU
terly indifftrent to expenses. Many
people think it quite "the correct'
thing" to know nothing of the prices
of common articles. Such ignorance
is supposed to suggest the idea of
vast wealth. But the facts are, that
it suggests quite 0 different train of.
ideas. The truly refined and high
bred, with abundant resources at
command, know tl at it advertises a
great ignorance of the world, a very
limited education, and oven less com
ruou sense. This sort of display
goes handiin-hand with vulgarity,
and stamps its possessor in a way :
that is "known and read of all men.
