in, and rolL .When they come into

thereon 50 bnsucls of lime, or the tame

and eo w on each aero of it, 1 pek of
timothy seed, 1 busbe! of orchard grsss,
lsy tashel Kentnclcy bine-grass, and 1 peck
g of red-top ; top-dress, with mixtnre of
"1 bns'ael of salt and one bushel of planter,

If the bodies of the trees are mossy, or

a draessing composed of a gallon of soft

Big Stories.
A company of great story-teller had
assembled otto evening, in the bar-room
of a tavern ont West, and some astonish
ing narratives real whopper" had
been given for sure facts. At length,
when the imaginations of the narrators of
these tales began to fait them, somebody
called on a quiet young man, who sat
gravely in a corner, for his story.
"Oil." said he, candidly, "I haven't
anything to say. I might tell a story,
but nothing to compare with that just
told."
However the company insisted, and
the young man beean :
' ""The adventure I am abont to relate
is somewhat singular, but it will not sur
prise you after what you have heard. I
was once skating on a very smooth and
extensive piece of ice, and havinjj excel
lent skates on my feet, I almost flew; in
deed, so great was my velocity, that I
did not seo an air hole in my way, bnt
dropped into it, like a bar of lead, and
had my head sli-ived clean off tor shoul
ders by the sharp ice."
This assertion made a great Inngh, and
some one asked the young man how many
tintls his head would bear shaving off.
" Hear me oat," he said gravely.
"Yon remember, I said I was going very
swiftly, and that the day was exceedingly
cold. My body, then, with its acquired
velocity; wont nnder the ice, as fast as
my head moved over it; coming to ano
ther air hole, np popped my body, and
down dropped my head, and froze in the
exact position I would have desired. So
yoa see, I had my head cut ofF and put
on again, without the least exertion on
my part,"
" Lucky !'
"But this is not the end of the adven
ture. On my leturn home, I sat by the
fire, relating my wonderful escape, when,
my nook beginning to thaw, I undertook
to blow my nose, and threw my head,
chili k 1 behind the back-log 1"
" And what then ?"
"No.hing." replied the narrator, grave
ly, fueling of his neck, "only my head, I
believe, hasn't stuck quite as well since!"
It is needless to say that this was the
bit big story told that night in the conn
trv tavern. .

A Father's Advice. Many years ago,
I remember a young man leaving his pa
rental roof, to look out for himself. On
the eve of his quitting his native mill-vil
lage, his father place.! a roll of bank bills
in his hand, with this advice:
" Josiah, yon are now about to go ont
into the world, where it s a good deal wi
der than 'tis here, nnd no fence round it,
neither. Take them bills; and. mind ye,
keep your fingers onto 'em tight, for the
wind's mighty apt to blow 'em where
vou'll never see 'em seam. Yon hain't
got a hard finish edication; bnt I tell ye,
JoMah, common school larnin's jist as
good as the hard finish, if you only know
how to handle it. Don't swear don't
throw the dips don't play keards don't
hang about taverns but yer may chaw
terbacker, "cause yer dad doe. Don't
cheat anybody what can't afford to stand
it; them as can. yon may pnt the hard
finish onto as thick as yon like. Keep a
stiff upper lip, Josiah, and don't let no
bodv impose on ve. If they do, list yon
bring ont thena hard finish licks what yer
old dad gov yer for neritance. '. :

Hoase, Boston, recently. The orator.
in referring to Mr. - Webster's taste lor j
many sports, added these words : "l bt

1, 173) that as the bow always bent, will
at last break, so th man forever on the
strain of thought an action, will at last
go mad or break down. Thrown npon .

of twenty centuries in. two the Anglo
American population has overworked,
and is daily overworking itself. . From

powers of the mind, are in spasmodic,
merciless activity. There ia no lack of

Uvdrophobia. The Buffalo Commer
cial contains the following rules, which
are extracted from the Paris papers and
published nnder ' the auspices of "the
"Committee of Salubrity." They may
not be out of place in this latitude.
1st. Any person bitten by a mad dog
or any other animal, ' should imediately
press with the two hands all round the
wonnd, so as to make the blood rnn free
ly and extract the saliva.
21. Yl ash the wonnd with a mixtnre
of alkali and water, ley, aoap, salt water,
nrine, or even pnre water.
During the time of pressing and wash
ing the wonnd. warm a piece of iron in
tho fire, and apply it deeply to the said
wonnd. Mind that said piece of iron is
only heated so as to be able to cauterize
that it mnst not be red hot.
These precantions being well observed,
are sufficient to preserve from the horrid
effects of hydrophobia, and every one
should keep them in their mind. -
Use of Esousn Words. The Hon.
Geo. P. Marsh, in a recent lecture on the
English language, says that the English
words found in nse by good writers, hard
ly fall short of 100,000. Even if a man
was able on extraordinary occasions to
bring iu use half of that number, he gen
erally cintented himself with far fewer.
Each individual used in his daily life a
repertory of words to some extent pecu
liar to himself. Few scholars nsed as
manv as ten thousand Engliidi words
ordinary people not more than three thou
sand. In all Shakespeare there were not
fifteen thousand words in all Milton
eight thousand. Of the Egyptian hiero
glyphics there were but eight hundred,
and it was said that the vocabulary of
the Italian opera was scarcely greater.
Treatmemt op Frosted Feet. To
cure the intolerable itching that follows
frost bitten toes, it is necessary to totally
exclude the air from the affected part. , If
it is not accompanied with swelling, gum
shellac, dissolved in alcohol, applied so
as to form a complete coat, is the easiest
remedy that I know of. It dries soon,
and does not adhere to the stockings, and
generally lasts nntil they are well. If the
fie ill becomes swollen and painful, plas
ters of good sticking salve are of great
service, but u highly innamed, any mild
poultice tbat will excludo the oxygen of
the air from the diseased part, and keep
it moist, allowing the recuperative pow
ers of nature to do the rest.

OPINIONS OF THE PRESS.
No other Lifu of Jefferson ever published
probably none th.it erer will be pnblihrd ran
bear any comparison to this in tlirou?lincH.,
fullness of incident, and conscientious fidelity.
This biography has evi
dently been a labor of love, and the years of pa
dent, assiduous toil it has cost, have been given
with ungrudging, untiring cuthusiasm. A. Y.
Tribune.
At length the public hare .Life of Thonins
Jefferson, that is not only fascmiting, and there
fore sure to be popnlar, but one that will stand
the essential historic test that of accuracy and
truthlulnris. It is seen that the ground-work
of the whole is authentic cotcniponiry mate
rial, and that of the highest order. To gather
it has been the work of years. We would not
compare this volume with that inimitable ami
ineomparuble biography of Bo-woll, and yet so
faithful is the portraiture that Jefferson is auric
to draw of himself, that his nature, his very
soul, U delineated wilh a ditinctness not unlike
that in which Johnson stands out in the pages
or U Mn-ell Motion I onr.
Imbued with that enthusiastic admiration of
bis subject, without which a biographer inrsrel
successful, Mr. Randall, nevertheless, does ni
seek to hide whatever faults he may find. either
from himself or from the reader. He paints the
picture as Cromwell insisted his should be pain
ted. "warts and all. 1 he picture gains by thi
in life-like coloring, without losing any of its
m tjestic proportions. Albany Eva. Jour.
No one who runs his eye, however cisually
over this work, will fail to be satisfied that Mr.
Randall haa added very largely to the stock of
the worid inform ition about Jefferson, that he
has had access to source hitherto unexplored
aod that he has done more than was ever done
by any one before him to illustrate the nenonal
itv of that great statesman. iY. Eat. pott.
We have rd with delight Mr. Randall's
captivating details of Mr. Jefferson's personal
history, which he has sedulously gathered, and
admirably grouped together, from a great variety
of authentic sources hitherto unexplored. Out
of th tempting richness of his material, the
able and clear sighted aniluar has constructed a
book at once m it entertaiuins and instructive
one that should be studied by every patriot of
tne land menmnna Munq.
There cm be only one opinion as to tbe abil
ity, general impartiality and industry which Mr.
Randall has brought into combination In the
eomnnsitinn of this biogwpby. He has
worthily executed a much wanted book. Pkil-
aaeipaia Press.
' It will take a place among the choicest class-
ie of American literature, and be consulted by
every future historian of this country. Pkilai.
