lie cotK-hed ft froj one tlnf and took Mm
home, and Fftid ho cal'lated to fldnonte him;
and no ho never lono nothing for three
months but sit in hiH hiick yard find lerirn the
frog bow to jump. And you 1et he did learn
him too. He'd give him little punch bo
hind, and the next minute you'd nee that frog
whirling in the air like a doughnut soe him
turn a mimmcrfiot, find innybe a couple, if he
Kt a good Btnrt, and come down Hut-footed
mid all right like a cat. He got him np bo
in the matter of catching Hies, and kept him
in practice ho conHtant, that he'd nail a
l'y f very time an far as he could ace him.
Smiley unid that all the frog wanted was
education, and he could do almont anything,
imd I believe him. Why I've Been him But
Daniel Webster down here on the ltoor
Daniel Webster wan the namo of tho frog
and sing out: "Flies, Dan'l, flios," and
quicker'n yon could wink ho'd spring np and
shake a fly oll'n the counter there and Hop
down on the floor Bgain as solid as a gob of
mnd, and fall to scratching tho sido of his
head with his hind foot as indifferent as if ho
hadn't no idee he'd done any mor'n any frog
might do. You never seed a frog so modest
and straightfor'ard as he was, for all he wan
so gifted. And when it came to a square
jumping on a dead level, he could got over
more ground at one straddle than any animal
of his breed yon ever see. Jumping ou m
dead level was his strong suit, you under
stand, and when it came to that Hinilcy would
ante up money to him as long as he had a
red. iSmiley was monstrous proud of his
frog, and well he might bo, for fellers that
had travelled and bin everywhere all said
that he laid over every frog that they seed.
Well, Smiley kept the beast in a little lat
tice boi, and he used to fetch it down town
sometimes, and lay for a bet. Once a feller
a stronger in camp, he was came across
him with his bot, and says:
"What might it be you've got in tho box?"
And Smiley, Borter indifferent like:
"It might be a parrot, or it might be a
canary, maybe; but it ain't, it's only just a
frog
And the feller took it and looked at it care
ful, and turned it around this way and that,
and says:
"H'm so 'tis. Well, what's he good for ?"
"Well," Smiley says, easy and careless,
"he's good enough for one thing, I should
judge he can outjump any frog in Calaveras
county."
The feller took tho box again and took
another long and particular look, and gives it
back to Smiley, and says very deliberate:
"Well, I don't see no points about that frog
that's any better'n any other frog."
"Maybe you don't, Smiloy said. "Maybe
you understand frogs, and maybe you don't
understand 'em; maybe you ain't only an ama
teur, as it were. Anyways, I've got my opi
nion, and I'll risk forty dollars that ho can
outjump any frog in Calaveras county."
And the f oiler studied a minute or two, and
then says, kinder sad like "Well, I'm only
a stranger here, and I ain't got no frog, but
if I had a frog I'd bet you."
And then Smiley says: "That's all right.
That's all right. If you'll hold my box a
minute, I'll go and get you a frog;" and bo
the feller took the box and put up his forty
dollars along with Smiley's and sat down to
wait.
So he sat there a good while, thinking to
hisself, and tuk the frog out and pried open
his mouth and took a teaspoon and filled him
full of quail shot filled him pretty near up
to the chin, and set him on the floor. Smi
ley, he went out to the swamp and slopped
around in the mud for a long time, and finally
he ketebed a frog and fetched him in, and
givo him to the feller, and says:
"Now. if you are ready, net him alongside
of Dan'l with his forepaws just even with
Dan'l's, and 1 11 give you the word." Then he
says, "one two three jump!" and him
and the feller touched up the frogs from be
hind, and the new frog hopped off lively, but
Dan'l gave a heave, hinted up his shoulder
so like a Frenchman, but it wasn't no use;
he couldn't budge; he was planted as solid
as an anvil, and he couldn't no more stir
than if he was anchored out. Smiley was a
good deal surprised, and he was disgusted,
too, but he didn't have no idea what the mat
ter was, of course.
The feller took tho money and started
away, and when he was going out of tho door
he sorter jerked his thumb over his shoulder
this way at Daniel, and says, again, very
deliberate. "Well, I don't see no other points
about that frog that's any better'n any other
frog."
Smiley stood scratching his hoad and look
ing down on Dan'l a long time, and at last he
Hays: "I do wonder what in the nation that
frog throwed off for; I wonder if there ain't
something the matter with him; ho 'pears to
look mighty baggy somehow;" and ho ketched
Dan'l by the nnpe of the neck, and lifted him
up and says, "Why, blame my cat, if ho don't
weigh five pounds," and turned him up-side
down and he belched out a double handful of
shot, and then he see how it was, and he was
the maddest man! lie set the frog down and
took after that feller, but he never ketched
him.
The Art ofllelns Ilnppy.
IleHry Ward Beecher says: Tho art of
being happy lies ia the power of extracting
happiness from common things. If we
pitch our expectations high, if we are'arrogant
in our pretensions, 11 we will noi pe nappy
except when our self-love is gratified, our
trice stimulated, our vanity fed, or a fierce
excitement kindled, then wo shall have but
little satisfaction out of this life! Tho whole
globe is a museum to those who have eyes to
see. llaro plays are unfolded before e very
man who can read the drama of life intelli
gently. Not go to tho theatres? Wicked to
see plavs? Every Btreet is a theatre. One
cannot open his eyes without
seeing unconscious players. There
are "Othellos." and "Hamlets" and
"Lears,"and"Falstaffs," "Ophelias," "Rosa
linds," and "Juliets" all about us. Midsummer-night
dreams are performing in our
heavens. Happy? A walk up and down
Fulton street, in Brooklyn, is as good as a
play. The children, the nurses, the maidens,
tho mothers, tho wealthy every-bodiai, tho
" queer men, tho unconscious buffoons, the
jlrolls, tho earnest nonsense, and the whim
sical earnestness of ruen, the shop-windows,
the cars, the horses, the carriages bless us
there is not half time. enough to enjoy all that
is tv. be seen in those things ! Or, if tho
mood takes you, go in and talk with the
people choosing, of course, fitting times
and seasons. Be cheerful yourself , and good
natured, and respectful, and every man has a
secret for you worth knowing. There ia a
schoolmaster waiting for you behind every
door. Every shopman has a look of life
different from yours. Human nature puts on
, M many kinds of foliage as trees do, and is
far baiter worth ntudying. Anger w not
alike in any two men, nor pride, nor vanity,
nor love. Every fool is a special fool, and
there In no duplicate. What are trades and
nil kinds of Iuihuk'RH but laboratories where
tho MtM-rcBl thought is transmuted into none
visible fcbnpe of nniller ? What are workmen
but translators of mind into matter ? Men
are cnltirtg. snitg, filiifg, fitting, joining,
polishing. Hut every article is bo much mind
condensed into matter. Work is incarnation.
Nobody knows a city who only drives along
its Kin els. There nre vaults under streets,
eelbirs under houses, attics above, shows be
hind. At every step men are found tucked
awny in Home queer nook, doing unexpected
IhiiiRH, themselves odd, and full of entertain
ing knowledge.
it is kindly sympathy with human life that
ennblrB one to secure hnppiness. I'ridd is
like fin unsilvc red glass, through w?ich all
Bights pasH. leaving no impression. But
sympathy, like a mirror, catches everything
that lives. The whole world makes pictures
for a mirror-heart. The bast of all is, that a
kind heart and a keen eye are never within
the Bheriff'8 reach. He may sequester your
goods, lint he cannot shut up the world or
confiscate human life. As long as theso aro
left one may defy poverty, neglect of friends,
and even, to a degree, misfortune and sick
ness, and still find hours brimful every day
of innocent and nourishing enjoyment.
The Cotton Outlook.
7'Vem the X. Y. Shipping and Commercial Lint.
Tho receipts at the ports, though gradually
falling off, are still quite high for the season,
and from the commencement of tho cotton
year, stand about thirty-two per cent, above
the corresponding period in lH;8-i;:. Tho
highest price of tho season in this market was
thirty-five cents for middling upland, in tho
early part of September, from which it gra
dually declined to twenty-ono and a quarter
cents, under tho heavy fall in the gold pre
mium. From that point there has boon a
recovery of about two cents, tho current
quotation being twenty-three and a
half cents. Tho popular estimates of
the current crop are two and three quarters
to three millions of bales, but should
the receipts during tho next three or four
weeks fall off as heavily as anticipated by
many, some modification from the top esti
mate is not improbable. The market during
the last fortnight has derived considerable
firmness from the unexpected strong tone at
Liverpool, which appears to have resulted
from tardy arrivals of the Indian staple, and
moderate stocks. As to the course of prices
during the next few months, there is, as
usual, a diversity of views, though tho popu
lar opinion seems to be that until there shall
bo a full year'B supply, and a considerable
augmentation of reserve to carry over to tho
beginning of another year, for all tho manu
facturing world, a material permanent de
cline is not probable. Much, however, will
depend upon tho condition of industries
now at rather a low ebb on both sides of the
Atlantic.
The planting season at the South is now at
hand, and there is every indication that an
increased breadth ..of land will be planted
under tho stimulus of good prices. Tho cost
of producing cotton under the present system,
in the hands of good managing planters, it is
said does not exceed fifteen cents per pound;
many of them, in a successful crop like this
one, make it for twelve cents, including in
terest on their investment, at current value.
As a price equal to twenty cents leaves a pro
fit beyond that afforded by any other branch
of agricultural industry, the bonthern plan
ters will be very apt to exert tnemseives to
the utmost to get in a large area.
Meanwhile the English cotton manufac
turers are making the most persistent efforts
to increase the supply in British India, in
order to successfully compete with tho United
States. The maximum exporting power of
India, with high prices, is stated by a leading
English authority at 1,900,000 bales; but now
that the impediments which havo for soven
or eight years stood between the foreign
spinner and his normal source of supply aro
gradually being removed, a point has proba
bly been reached from which the Indian
culture will retrogrado, for it is a conceded
fact that under a moderate scale of
prices that country cannot compete.
As to quality, it is simply a physical
impossibility lor tho Indian cultivator to
grow cotton at all comparable with ours. The
Indian staple is invariably short, harsh, and
troublesome in tho processes ot machinery.
This is the indigenous sort. Attempts havo
been made to obviate the stubborn difficulty
by the importation and naturalization of
American seed. Even then tho produce,
though superior to the native one, is largely
behind that in our Southern States. In the
second year this degeneracy increases; and
soon the growth is as unacceptable as the
Surat. In fact, foreign manufacturers have
no reliable sources but this country. The
dependence may be galling, but it is
unavoidable. Our climate and soil are
fitted by nature to produce that pecu
liar variety of raw material which cannot
be dispensed with in textile fabrics used
for wearing apparel. All this has long boon
known, and if we now allude to facts so
patent, it is because of tho renewed efforts
in a comparative hopeless rivalry. Wo Bhall
not only reach the ante bcUum production of
cotton, within a very few years, but tho Eng
lish spinners will not unlikely experience an
additional shock from the transfer of British
machinery and operatives to American soil,
where the conditions for manufacturing are
superior to any other part of the world. Air.
Cobden's significant utterance that Britiah
Indo "cotton-growers must be prepared for a
revival of American industry, ana the com
petition of the world," Is now in a fair way
for a full realization.
French School-Hoy.
Our Freneh cousins have been having trou
ble of late with thoir school-boys. Those in
genuous youths, whom one may observe
strutting about the Paris boulevards of a
Sunday afternoon, with military kepis on
their heads, and tunics generally too small
for them, have been breaking out into revolt
in diflerent lyceen 01 tbe capital ana pro
vinces; and the papers have been entertain
inc with lively accounts of tho obstreperous
doings of tho young gentlemen. This is not
very amusing for the new Minister of Publio
Instruction, M. Segris; for ahen there aro
schelastio riots the "Grand Master of tho
University" has usually a fine amount of
work on his hands in trying to ascertain who
are most to blame the boys for rebellinc?,
the masters for driving the boys to rebel
lion, or tho red tapo rules of 1-rench
Bchool management under which revolts
are bo frequent and ministerial interventions
bo often necessary. 11 seems mat uunug mo
last half-year there have been as many as nine
insurrections in Imperial lycecs tho towns
which havo suffered being Paris (two insur
rections), Douai, Lille, Brest, Nantes, Mar
seilles, Privas, and Nevers. Tho causes of
the outbreaks have been various. In one
case it was the bad quality of tho food; in two
others, the unpopularity of tho head-master;
in another, the attempt to abolish the week's
holiday at Christmas; in another, again, some
unpleasant business in connection with reli
gious observances, which it was thought to en-
force by means of punishments; and in the liv.t,
that of Kevers, the arbitrary evpulsion of
gome juvenile Had icals who had organized a
subscription for tho monument to Victor
Noir. In every instance tho complexion
nfsumcd by the rebellion has been the same.
French boys are rot pnrtiimlnrly remarkable
for practical sense, aud appear to take pattern
by some of their elders in their love for ex
travagant demonstrations. When thy are
dissatisfied they rise aud sin the "Marseil
laise" (it is very curious to hear a French lad
shout, "Qu'nn sang iiupur nbrouve nos
Billons!" apropos of tough beef). They
smash desks and fotms, Biug '"Vivo Itoche
fort !" open the school-gates, spread riotous
and bawling through the streets, aro solemnly
expelled in a body, and finally readmitted
again, with tho exception of tun or a dozen
of the ringleaders, sacrificed as scapogoati for
the sins of the rest.
