Anecdote of a Doctor. A young Incty
consulted u physician oiVrtiinence on account
of some rheumatic pains, and a troublesome
cough, which she had labored under ever
since the commencement of the cold weath
er. The prescription was sent by the loot
man to the apothecary's as usual. lie read
it with a smile, and recommended the mes
senger to take it to a dry goods' mnn on the
opposite side of the street, ns apothecaries
did not keep the articles prescribed; upon
which the luottnan inquired what the doctor
had ordered, when ho was informed by iI2s
culapius that the prescription ran thus:
Take a good warm double Scotch shawl,
and apply it immediately around the shoul
ders and chest; and also, secundum urtna, a
Stout Welsh Petticoat."
Young Lr.Y. A man swearing the peace
against three of his sons, thus concluded the
affidavit: " And this deponent further suitli,
that the only one of his children w ho showed
him anv real filial aflVction, was his votum
est son Lniy, for he never struck him when
lje was down."
Two Jews were distinguished, one for his
kill in boxing, and the other for his U tidness
for women. A gentleman being asked to
what tribe they belonged, answered. 1 ra
ther think one is an Aniorite; and the other
is a Ilittite."
The London Athena um gives the follow

Lines extern nore, uriiU n in the Album of
Miss S. A. T.
Lovely girl! enchanting creature !
Beautiful in every feature!
Head and body, legs and all,
Sighing for aimer's call!
Lines written tx'empore on the shell of an egg.
By nature I was surely. meant
To be a cock or hen; ...
But to the pot, alas! I'm sent,
To feed poor hungry men!
