Aud Ibut, charged wilb bia tuistiou, Reverend Peter Palmleaf got into Ibe oue-boree culler and jingled merrily away.

Je-tutaleml taid Mr. Darrow, TV ho bad alwayt beard that Mr. Palmleaf, like moat men of genius, wat au eccentric, but bad never realized it before. Have you spoken lo ber? Cerlaiuly noi! auawered Mr. Palmleaf. Of course I shouldn't Ibink of aucb a thing without teeing you Ural. Very atraighiforward of you, I'm tuie, taid the farmer, but ol cuu ao I can bave DO objection, if Dolly beitell it bulled. Though, and be ttuole one red-milled band upon bit knee, now 1 come to think ol it, you're never teen Dolly I No! taid the minister, aerenely. liul that need make no difference. Je-ruaaietn! again uttered the farmer. It wasn't I hi way i u.ed to look at tbingt arbea I waa a young oiau. Tastes difler, laid Mr. Paim.i-at, a little impatient at this lengthened d tcuasioo.

Dolly Darrow looked op with cbetkt ciimtooed like any lose, eyet full of deep brown parklet,aud around which danced a (wrfecl galaxy of dimplet. Wait a minute, please, taid the. Certainly, taid Mr. Palmleaf. And be tat down on a wooden a too I lu tbe corner, aod fell to meditating on tbe thirdly of bit uncompleted termon, while Dolly sped up the ttairt, three ttept at tiuie.

And Dolly nucteeded in earning il. Fifteen minute later, sho got into the cutler, Willi a big bundle, which Mr. I'u i m leaf Mowed auugly away under tbe teat, aud the minister ilrovu homo wiib tea ci exultation. . Mis Paulina wa iu the kitchen, frying sausage lor dinner, wbeu Dorothy Dar row walked lu, with cheek iike carna tions, hair blown over ber face, aud tbe bundle under ber arm. Here I am, Mist Palmleaf, laid the. The bired help, at your service. Mi Paulina ttared. Wby, it' Dorothy, taid the. And 1 tent Peter after Yet, I know, taid Dolly, brightly.

Decs use I atn a tuiart little housekeeper, and I cau help you joM aa anuch k any Irish girl could. Just give in a trial, that' all. Mit Paulina bud a shrewd appreciation of a joke; ber herd feature relaxed with a smile, at the ttood looking dowu at tbo radiant little brunette. Well, taid the, I don't mind if 1 do. For one month Doiolby Darrow offici ated at hired girl at tbe parsonage. Then tbe came to the clergymau one day. Mr. Palmleaf, aaid the, I am going to leave the, place ! Mr, Palmleaf looked op lo amazement and dismay. I hope, Dolly, said he, that neither I nor my titter bave unwittingly offended you ? No! taid Dolly, putting ber little foot on tbe daring green leave In the study carpet; bnt ob, Mr. Palmleaf, I have done so wrong, and I do earnestly beg your pardon ! Doily ! ci ied out tbe )U v. Peter In mild eurprite. Because you are so good aud true, sob bed the girl; and I'm uot a biied girl, aud I only can here for a joke, and I can't bear lo think I'm de-de-deceiving you! And Dolly began to cry piteotialy, be hind the coiner of her apron. You came here for a joke, eb? taid the minister. Y-yet! confessed Dolly, behind her apron. Well theu, taid the minister, geully drawing ber toward him, suppose you lay in earue-t . Sir? faltered Dolly. My dear, said Mr. Palmleaf, 1 bave got used 'o having you arouud, and I should mix you terribly if yoa leave o. Do you think 1 am loo old to think of a blooming youug a ile like you? Not a bill cried Dolly, indignantly. Od-jou! Do you like me a little bif? A great ileal, said Dolly, laughing and blushing. Tbeu you will my wilb me alwayt? And Dolly promised that the would. Everybody wondered bow to bashful a mn at the lU-vereud Mr. Palmleaf ever mustered courage for a proposal ; bnt no one knew that the engagement began for a j ke and turned out Id aober earnest. How these war treoioriel come floating back. It arcmt like a dream now', but it wat terribly real lbn At Oiuttee, it before the fight: 'Please, ir, taid Pat, an I nab corporal, I ibink me horse wantt to roll. Very well, laid the captain, take off bit saddle aud let biro roll, but mind yoa mount a toon a be it tbroogb. Yet tir, taid Pat, saluting and falling to tbe rear. There wa a brush wilb the Jobn oie few minute later, and there wa lively woik for tbe next half hour. Wben a lull came, Ibe captain taw Pat titling quietly on a atuutp, holding bi saddle. Where's yoar horse? ked the captain. Dowa in ibe field there, sir, answered j Pat, rising to ts'ul bit commander. Dida't 1 tell yoa to moant At eooa at be j bad done rolling? gore yoa did, captain, an' it't for that I'm waiUug. lie hasn't i begun yet. It wat Pat' last tally of wit. The poor fellow died in tbe next charge. 1 A nice jam ii preferable to ta ice jitn. a wit. Few meo die of old tge. Almost all ! d.o ol disappointment, paa.ioH, menial or I txid:y loll or accident. Passion kill men I totnetimr, even tiiJdenty. The common expression, choked wilb rii'n, bat lit- tie exargertti.in in it ; for even though nul tiitldenly fa'al, strong passions short en lile; strong bodied men ollen die young: weak men live longer II au the strong, for Ibe urong use their tlrengtb and Ibe weak bave none (o use. Tbe lal" trr like car of lhrnielvrt the former do not. At It it with the mind and temper. The tirong are apt to break, or, like the candle, to run out. The inferior animals which live lu general regultr and temper. ate live, have getietally their prescribed number ol jeais. Thehotso lives twenty five years; tbe ox fifteen orlweuty; tbe lion about twenty; tbe dog ten or twelve; tbe rabbit eight; the t.uluea pig tlx or (even year. These number all bear t similar proportion lo the time the animal take to grow il full tire. But man, of tbe animal, I oue that aeldom come op to tbit avenge. He ought to live one hundred year according to thit physio logical law, a five time twenty are one hundred; but Instead of that he tctrccly reacbet, on au average twice hit growlug period ; the cat eiz time and the rabbit eight timet thit standard of measurement. Tbe reason it obvious man ia not only the mott irregular and tbe most Intemper ate, but the mo! laboriout and hard working of all (be animals; and there it reason lo believe, though we ctunol tell what au animal cecrutly feel, that mora than any other animal man cherisbe wrtlh to keep warm and consume him self with the fire of hit owu secret reflec tions. AN IIDITSK WIT. Thackeray has been police reporting for the London Diogent. Hero is a sample: Pat Fogarly went all the way from Manchester to London to Ihrasn Mike Fitzpsiiick, which be did, winding up the performance with the assistance of an awful horseshoe. He wa doteoted and brought before Mr. Justice Siuiplcroau. A part of the examination is anuexed. Court Well, sir, you came here from Manchester, did you? Pat Your honor has answered cor rect. Court You see the complainant's head ; It wai cut by a sharp instrument. Do yon know what cut it? Pat Ain't your honor afiher sayln' (bat a sharp instrument did? Court (becoming restive) I tee you mean to rqnivoe.aie. Now, sir, you cut that head; voucamc here to do it, did yon not? Now, tir, what motive brought you to London? Pal The locomotive, ycr honor. Court (waxing warm) Equivocating again, you tcouudrel (raising up the horse shoe and holding in before Pal); do you see this horso shoe, sir? Pat Is it a horse shoe, yer honor? Court Dou't you sec it is, sir? are you blind? Can yon not tell at once that it is a horse shoe? Pat Bcdad, uo yer honor. Court (angrily) No? Pat No, yer honor, but tell? Court Of course I can, can yersclf you stupid Irishman. Pat. (soliloquizing aloud) -Oh, glory be to gooduc.es, see what education Is, ycr honor I Sure a poor ignorant creature like myself didn't know a horse shoo from a mare's. A man may eat and drink heartily all day, and sit and lounge about doing nothing, in one sense of the word, but his body must keep hard at work all tbe time or it will die. Suppose the stomach refuses to work within ten minules after a hearty dinner, the man would die in convulsions lu a few hours, or cholera or cramp colic would rack and wreck biin. Suppose the pores of the skin meaning thereby the grandulir apparstii" with which they are connected should go on a strike, wo would in an hour be burning up with a lever, or oppression would weigh down the ssieiu and soon become insupportable. Suppose the liver be comes mulish; appeiiic would become an nihilated, lood woul be loathed, torturing pain would invade the small of the back, and the head would -ache to banting.' Sappoto the kidneys shut up shop, and dangert more imminent, iu (Turing more unbearable, and "iletiili more certain would be the speedy and Inevitable re sults. If the little woiksbops of tbe eye should close, iu an hour we could not shut or open them without physical force, and iu another we would be blind ; or of the tongue, aud il would become a dry as a bone aud at stiff at Heel. To keep such a complication of mtcbiuerie in working order lor a lifetime it miracle of wisdom; but to work them by the pleasuret of eating and drinking ia a miracle of beneficence, The poisonous nicotine which consti tute! the active principle! of common to bacco, and which lo confirmed adult irnoler it met and to tome encnt neutra lized by the natural resisting forces of tbe matured human tyilem, layt I old of Ibe forming nerve tissue of the youug j and doet lit mischievous work unimped ed. Stunted growth, flabby flesh, pasty complection, shambling gait, fickle appe tite, dull comprehension, lack of interest in things and premature ripenen, like that ol a diseased apple, at among the signs of injury carried aboat by thousand of American boy ttuokert who are striv ing lo show themselves men by proving themselves very foolish children. Tbal the practice of smoking It fast increasing among tbe boya of towns and cities, aod that lb age at which (be habit is taken op ! rapidly approaching the nursery, If not the cradle, cannot be doubtful lo one who walks the streets aud especially tbe aJley with hi eye open. tY ttUMt !

Inquired F.dison, sleep ily robbing bis eye aud stretching like a lion Suddenly aroused. Midnight, easy enough. Come along. Is that ao? returned Edison, in a dreamy tort of wsy. By George I must go home then. I wst married to-day! I I KltVIKWlSU. Tho reporters of some metropolitan pa pers have Intel views with distinguished personages which are too gauzy to hold together. '1 bit is the usual style: A J-'orum reporter was detailed lo in terview lion. John Jones. Ho proceeded at ouce to hi residence, and running up the marble steps, rang I ho bell. A lady appeared at tho summons of tho servant, whom the reporter supposed to bo Mrs. Jones," He wife of the distinguished gen tleman. Bowing and removing bi hat the reporter said: I Mr. Jones st home? No, wa (he response. , He ia not iu the house (lieu? No, eir. Ah! lu (list case he must bo ouil He I. Yes! Being out be is therefore not in? No, sir. Hum! When will ho bo In? I don't know, Ah-b! No objection to publishing this Inleiview in the Dully Forum, 1 sup pose ? Not Ht all. Thank you, and tho reporter bowed aud left. He returned again, however, about 11 o'clock at night in hopes of find ing the gcntletiinu at home. At any rale a mau raised the upper window wbeu tbe bell rang, and asked who wa there. The reporter explained his business and asked if it wat the lion. Mr. Jones who spoke. The man said it was, and if tbo reporter didn't leave he'd throw a pitcher of water out. The reporter hoisted hi umbrella, aud asked Mr. June what he had lo say ou the subject of international finance and commercial reciprocity. Jone threw the water, but the umbrella would have protected tho reporter, hsd not Jones thoughtlessly dropped the pitcher. That ended the umbrella and luterlvew, aud nearly smashed the reporter, but he feels tweet revenge in the fuel that Mr. Jones' wartr pitcher is :;o more. It struck Ids cheek. Only actions give life thotighi ; only mode.alion gives it a ehsim. How liltie doe one know of the real nature of the struggle between good and bad in the heart of another. Never accept ol favors or hosplisliiies ilbost rendering an exchange of ci vi - llie when opportunity ofl'-.-rs. The body in h y rest through the sleep o' tho night ; but the poor mind works as hard In dream as it did through tbe wakeful day. Memory can gleam but never renew. It brings ut joy faiut at is the perfumo ol tbe flowers, laded arid dried, of tho turn mcr that it gone. Libor without ceasing to do all liie good iu your power while time it allowed you, for the night will coiye when no man can work. Tbe tii mi who pos-isses a passionate aud revengeful temper is deprived of rea aon, aod all that It great aud noble iu hit nature it tuppresed. Beware of prejudices; they are like rait, and men's minds are like traps. Prejudices creep lo easily, but it Is doubt ful if they ever get out. Friends do not grow on every bash, though lovers any, and w hen one finds a good, true friend, one ought to value him nor feel ashamed ol it either. The greatest pleasure ol life It love; the greateat treasure is contentment; lie greatest possession It health; Ibe greatest ease I sleep, aod the greatest medicine is a true friend.

She speaks, fastening her commanding gaze upon me. Sir, would It bo asking too much If I bogged you to let myself and little girl have that seat ? A gentleman can al ways find a seat ao much more easily than a lady. And she smiled. It was too triumph ant to be very pleasing. Of course I sur rendered. I said : Oh, certainly, cerlaiuly. I could Hud another seat without any trouble.

An army officer who recently arrived In Chicago from the Yellowstone valley, tells a story ol what tisppi itud to a held of b il (l'u hies as they were migrating south ward. Tho herd numbered ',ih) hesd and had been driven out of the Milk river country by the Iniliun hunters belonging to Sitting Bull's band. When they reach ed the river they ventured on the lcn with customary confidence, coming upon It with a solid front, and beginning tho crossing with closed rank, The stream at this polut wa very deep. When the front lino, which was stretched out a quarter of a milo In length, had nearly gained tho opposite shore, (ho ice sudden ly gave way under thorn. Some trapper who were cyo wilnesses of the scene said it seemed as if a trench had been opened In the ice the whole length of the column. Some four or five hundred animals tum bled Into the opening all in a heap. Oilier fell in on top oHhcm and sank out of sight in a twinkling. By thlstlmo the Ice was breaking under I be slill ad vancing herd. The trappers say that In less than a miniilo the whole body of hull tloes had been precipitated Into the wa'pr. They were wedged lu so thickly that they could do nothing but struggle fur a second mid then disappear beneath the cakes of ice of Iho swift current.
