"I don't eares" How many troubles From these hateful words have sprung! Far too often falls the sentence en. From the lips of old and young. How it lowers man's true standard! How it hurries to despair! Spleen, and spite, and hate are nourished C. In the baneful "I don't eare!" "I don't care"' Oh, why no common end Should this vile expresson be? ad Did it ever soothe a sorrow, Or to flight put misery? Did it e'er dispel a shadow, Or bring sunshine anywhere? its Came there ever yet a blessing With the spiteful "I don't care!" A- Pauper, in thy wretched garret, Did it ever bring thee gold? Maiden, did it mend the quarrel ur Which arose when love grew cold? es Sailor on the boundless ocean, Would you ever danger dare On a ship, however worthy, With the captain "I don't care?" Heart-crushed pilgrim on life's highway, Did it ever bring thee balm? S Toiler roused by man's injusice, Did it e'er thy spirit calm? fe Christian reaching after Heaven, of Did it ever lead to prayer? ý Parent, did thy child's amendment Ever follow "I don't care?" Many a wretch in anguish groaning. Backed and wasted by disease Many a thief his crime atoning - In his sin-brought miseries * Many a low-browed, ruthless murd'red Doomed to dangle in the air, Owe the climax of their follies To the reckless "I don't care!" dl "I don't care!" Oh, let the sentence Never pass your lips again! It can never bring you pleasure, - But it may engender pain. 'Mid all Satan's vile inventions, None more surely can ensnare, Than the worthless, good-for-nothing, Stupid saying, "I don't care!" "OUR STORT TELLER." THE RUGG DOCUMENTS. DY CLARA AUGUSTA. The world has come to a pritty pass when folks can't make theirselves in no ways snllerbrated without running the risk of having their private affairs drag- 1 ged out into the gaze of the public, and dished up in the newspapers along with the murder of Mr. Jones, and the. sewi cide of Mr. Smith. Now-a-days every consarned fool that is too lazy to work takes to correspond ing with the newspapers, and aruning a it few cents now and then out of some poor feller mortal's misfortina. Times has gone by when bread was aimed by the sweat of yer brow. It ain't genteel to sweat in these times. About a week ago as I was hanging out three pair of stockins on the clothes line that I'd been coloring blue for Johnathan -and, if I do say it, I got as good a col or as ever you seed-I seed a feller com ing up over the ice, a scuffing along for fear he should fall, with a book under his arm and a pair of gold goggles on his nose. I took him for a thread and needle < pedler that's allers a coming along when nobody wants him, and I hollered out to "Hold on there, mister--it's pritty Sslippery round that way, and you can Ssave yourself thetroble of comingin. I don't want nothing." Ye see this pedler was slier. dremdful I hard to get rid of, and generslly he'd 3 manage to hang round till dinner was Sreddy, and then I had to ask him to eat and he'd pay me in buttons and such And as I'd got my dinne all struck out that day--split peas, and injun bread, C and apple euars I didn't mean to mink.no change, and I didn't want no ifrangers ' to bother me. "I ain't a pedler," ses has as indignant - as ever you seed. "Irm an Interviewer from New York eity, madam." a "Oh, Mr. Interviewer, I beg your pard ingl" sae I; "but railly, now, I took you 4 for Silas Diggles, a thread-mnd-needle d pedler. He's got just sumk aahooked nose as your'n, and heha jinst such away of b waddling along, as if his trousis was a e little tight and he was afraid of busting o 'em." "My name is Brigga," sea he"Col. fI p John Briggs of the New York Northern a Light!" a "How do do?" men L. 'Qw's your pa and mar' "Very well," see he.

'Ezactly," sea he. "When you are at 1 liesure, I want to intervwete you. rvecome I all the way from New York on purpoedt" c "The land sake!" sea L "Be you a per- a lice? It you be, I ain't the one you're after. c I hain't done nothing out of character; I I hain't robbed nor murdered, nor stole I nobody nor nothing-so you might as 4 well travel!" "I am an Interviewer!-a reporter," sex he; "and, as I remarked before, I want to interview you'" "What is that?" ses I. "Anything like pulling a tooth, or sculping a feller, or setting a bone?" He laffed and sleeked down his whisk era jest as you'd slick down the cat's s tail. p "Oh, no, indeed, my dear madam! I ' only wish to ask you a few simple quea- C tions." ft "Oh, law!" sex L "Why didn't you may so in the fast place? Come into the house g and take a cheer onto the sofy, and make t1 yerself at home." p He sot down and opened hisbook, and n took his pencil out of his pocket, and be gun to whittle it with his knife. "Your name," sez he, "is Bugg?" t( "No 'taint! 'Tis Perkins." a "Ah, yes--Rugg Perkins? Jerusha?" o "Exactly," sez I-"you've hit it there, ca squire." ix "Where were you born?" us he. w "To home," us I, "where all decent as folks allers goes to be born." Al "When?" sez he. e "None of your consurns," us I, for I l1 knowed that like the rest of the man sect, 01 he was a fishing to find out my age. ci "Ever had the mumps?" g "Yes." ft "Chicken pox?" tc "No." tl "What kind of salaratus do you use?" n "Don't use none.

While I was rubbing him. ir; Briggs picked himself up and got away. le I ixpect he wont want to interview yer as Aunt Jeruahy agin rite of J. RBoo Pams.. ez to THE NETHER SIDE OF NEW ke YORK. When a asharper proves himself a mas k- ter of his art, always ready to adapt him *" self to any exigency however suddenly presented, and constantly intriguing with sucoes for illegal gains, without in . wrring the pmnaltia of any statute of frauds yet devised, he rises to the digni f ty of a skinner, who is the rankest e growth of that rare roguery which dodges the law at every turn, and is nowhere produced in such perfection as in the fi d nancial hot-bed of the continent. * * * * * * * * Not long since a skinner, santering up town after a day of illluckin Wallstreet I managed to bring down two birds with one stone in a manner that greatly in e, creased the credit of his tribe. Stepping into a leading furnishing store in Broad- i way, he bought cravats, collars, gloves, it and other articles to the amount of $65, and taking out his pocket-book display ed a large roll of bills. Out he sudden I ly remembered that he desired to make t, other purchases on his way, especially of cigars at a prominent up-town Broadway grocery, and proposed to give a cheek for $100 for his purchases, as he wished to use that evening a little more money than he had with him. The check was v readily accepted, and with his goods and & $35, he walked leisurely away. Getting i to the grocery, he purchased cigars and liquors to the amount of $75, and desired ý l to pay for them with a check, as he had I r just paid out all the money he had with him at the furnishing store, which estab lishment he boldly gave as a reference. Fe had the goods with the label of the house upon the parcels, his statement was be lieved and he walked way with another $25 added to his store. In this case he desired the goods sent to his residence, which was done, and being received at the house he had named, they were nev er afterwards recovered, although upon subsequent investigation, when the cheeks proved worthless, it was found that he i was utterly unknown on the premesees. , ~ A little shrewder game was playedby the fellow who paid for his purchase with a check which was taken without question, t as the dealer saw that it was certified. But when it came back bearing the dis treesing words "No funds," the dealer opened his eyes wide to see that the cer- 6 tification was one of the most shallow de-E vices by which a fool and his money had' ever been parted. The check purported to be drawn by the secretary of acompa ny, and the certification was by the cash zar of the same company, with the wqrd cashier made prominent in a large round hand, while the initials of the company, under neath at a hasty glance looked like a more flourish of the pem. These sr* only two illustrations out of thomusndsa -which might be given showing how the skinner's operate in worthiems checks Another method whiekths skinner has adopted for nmaking his way in the world. while qreditslble to his ingenuity, is a great sannoyance to the mereantile comn-a maunity.

But oftener he takes the chance Ad of disposing o( the goods in New York, id in which case the cartman who takes me them from the store of the seller dumps ki them upon some pier, from whence they m are taken away by another cartman, and ip all trace of them is thus lost. In this in way many skinners contrive to do a thri a. ving business year after year without de y. tectron; ad some of them even bolder, er send circulars through th? country and advertise in moral newspapers, by which means they get consignments of produes from farmers, and of course never make a return, nor can they be found when the duped shipper, as he always does at last, comes to the city to hunt up his corres pondent. This knavery is so adroitly I- managed that in many cases the skinner r actualay pays advances on consignments; Y but as it is always only a small per bent. E of the value, it will be readily seen that he takes no chance of losing his margins d by the operation. By these devices, cal ' culated to deceive, men of ordinary pru t deuoe and caution, he has done a most thriving trade, and almost undermined public confidence in commercial integri ty. Not content with this, he further ex tracts profit from his bogus character by sowing notes of the business house whose p name he has assumed, and readily gets it them shaved by the lees reputable bill hx diseounters.-Guahxy MaVegiae. 9 Sm.rrsuiuAs.-Live for some purpose in the world. Always act your part well. c, Fill up the measure of duty to others. * Conduct yourselves so that you shal be missed with sorrow when you are gone. Multitudes of our species are living in e such a selfish manner that they are not ºf likely to be remembered after their diuap 7 pearance. They leave behind them k scarcely any traces of their existence, and d are forgotten almost as though they had 7 never been. They are, while they live, 8 like some pebble thrown into the sea, I which just ruffles the surface, sinks, and 9 is forgotten, without being missed from i the beach. They are neither regretted 1 by the rich, wanted by the poor, nor cele I brated by the learned. Who has been Sthe better for their life? Who has been - the worse for their death? Whose tears e have they dried up? Whose wants sup s plied? Whose misery have they healed? Who would unbar the gate of life to rc. r r admit them to existence? or what face i would greet them back again to our ' world with a smile? Wretched, unpro t ductive mode of existence! Selfishness is - its own curse; it is a starving vice. The x man who does no good gets none. He is] like the heath in thedesert, neither yield I ing fruit nor seeing when good cometh, a stunted, dwarfish, miserable shrub. L Sir, Rzuaaso.-Children should be " taught this at an early age. An exchange says: Our observation has led us to the r conclusion that two of the strongest elements of success are, courageous self reiance, an ecnomy. Th e lf poor orphan has to fight his mwnbsttles. No rich father furnishes him acarriage to ride,sandso he must walk--and he learns to walk. No one reaches oust a friendly hand to lead him. and he learns to go alone. With a scanty supply of pocket money. he is compelled to habits of economy that ever alter cling to hims. "The boy is the father of the man" as a trite ssyiag. The poor boy comas up. to manhaood, and instead of leaning upon somose eto aid himn, or of waiting for somre one to come to his help he strikes out with a fseling that, to use a vulgarissm, ho must "root hogor die"-.and he roots away, Iook where yos will, and yes will find that ninety-five out of every hun dred menesoll mis are inspired withh just thisaself rslisntfsuling.
