(Ini' of our old whaling captains, who had spent the whole prime of his life box-haul ing from Cape Horn to Kamtstatka, with but indifferent success, having scraped together some five or six thousand dollars, retired from the sea, moved “up country” with his family, and bought a small farm. hike many others of his class, a few years sufficed to swamp his capital, and he died miserably poor. But that is anticipat ing matters and has nothing to do witli the anecdote. One of his country neighbors said to him, soon after he settled on the farm: “Captain K., you've got a nice pond on your place, and you ou"ht to have a good large tloek of geese, ft's a grand place, to keep ’em, and they’ll be profitable to you.” “Well, I reckon they will,” said the cap tain. “I've g"t some nice ones to sell ye,” continued the kind neighbor. “Jfoucomc over and pick ’em out yourself.” So the captain selected a suitable num ber, making his choice as lie would among ashoal of whales when “brought to,” or as a boy would from a basket of apples. In the spring following, he happened to be visiting the farm of another neighbor, and among other tilings inspected the geese, making comparisons in his mind highly favorable to his own judgment. “Don't think your birds are so handsome as mine,” lie remarked. “Do you have any eggs yet?” “Oh, yes; they’ve been laying freely for this month or more." “Well, I don't know how ’tis,” said Cap tain K. “I’ve got the handsomest tloek that I've seen anywhere this season—pick ed'em out, one by one, from our neighbor Jones's stock, and I feed era high, too. But not an egg have they laid yet. I only wish you’d come over and see ’em. Per haps you can give me an idea how to man age 'em.” His friend did “come over and see ’em” the next day, and, as soon as he could speak for laughter, he enlightened the an cient mariner as to the cause of their non productiveness, by informing him that they were all —ganders! Jones haosold Captain K. and the birds; and it was by a series of little specula tions and blunders that his hard earnings were fooled away in a few farming cam paigns.
