Ife is a good natured, shrewd sort of a fellow, somewhat addicted to doing bnsiners on the Jeremy Diddlef si vie, as the following incident will tes tify : Living near the residence ot tho Hon, Morrow C. Lowry, jie was frc qnetitly employed by the latter to do odd jobs around the houso and in tho garden. One day Mrs. Lowry concluded that the peccadilloes ol a worthier toni cat, long attached to the family, were such as demanded the infliction of capital punishment, and Jim was called upon lo play the part of executioner. After a long chaso the victim was captured and put in n basket, over which an old bh,iwl was fasteued. The next move was how to dispose of the prisoner. Mrs. Lowry suggested drowning, but Jim, with tears in his eyes, protested that he could no more drown the cat than he could drown himself ;..that were he to do so, his con science, acting on a naturally tender heart, would trouble him so much at nights that he was sure he could never (.Jeep a wink thereafter. Not wishing to ruin Jim's peace of mind, Mrs. Lowry compromised the matter by giving him a dollar, and directing him to dispose of it in any way ho pleased, so that she should never see it again, l'litting tlm dollar in his pocket and the basket under his arm, Jim started down town, lie had not gone out of sight of the house when he met Morrow walking along leisurely, toward his home, and tho fol lowing colloquy ensued ! . , Morrow Hollo, Jim, what have you got there ? Jim-One ob Ho celebrated Rocky Mountain cats, sah. Morrow A '-'Kooky Mountain cat ! Why, Jim, where did yon get him, and what are you going to do with him ? Jim I golly, sah I Didn't you hear ob do'liig bunch ob dem cats cum to town yesterday from Kalifbrny, sah ? Best mousers in the wui l, sah, and dis is de biggest and lies' one ob lot, sah. Dey are gwine to give me foali dollars for him, t tho Heed House, sah. , MorrOjv (recollecting .the' general "cnssedness" of the family cat) Jim, we want a good cat up home, and I guess I'll take this fellow, butbut don't you think four dollars is steep for a cat ?

Jim had, however, very important busi ness elsewhere, and he begged Morrow, to take the basket himself, which the latter consented to do. Arriving at home, he took the prize into the Bitting room, carefully closed the doors, slight ly lifting the basket cover and smiling benevolently at Mrs. Lowry's apparent astonishment, remarked : "My dear, I've brought you a liocky Mountain cat the best, mouser At this moment the cat jumped oat of tho banket, and commenced rubbing himself Bgainst his master's leg.

Agassiz as a Boy. The story 4s told of Prof. Agassiz that he'was a p'jor Swiss lad,-who, refusing to turn a penny by his father's trade, began alone to spell out the alphabet of Nat ore iu rocks and birds and beastSj The knowledge did not promise to help him one whit among his neighbors ; did not put shoes on his feet, or salt in his por ridge;.a comfortable home and a successful business waited for him, but ho chose to go wandering through the Alps, hatchet in hand, and often but a sou in his pocket, "nfuni solittle, "he said, when my hunger wns so 1iig." So hungry and half-clad, he followed for years the halt-efficed signs ol his unknown language, as a child might trace the footsteps ot a lost mother.

"Can our young "friend, who knows something about fishes.tell us anything about it?"

The Cayote. j In his now book, Roughing It," Mark Twain gives the following amusing des cri lion of the Cayote, which will be specially interesting to all who have seen this vicious animal prowling over the l'lains, or hanging round the camp at night: The cayote la a long, slim, sick and sorry-looking skeleton, with a gray wolf skin stretched over it, a tolerably bushy tail that forever sags down w ith a des pairing expression of forsakenness and misery, a furtive and evil eye, and along, sharp face, with slightly lilted lip and exposed teeth. He has a general slink ing expression nil over. Tho cayoto is a living, breaching allegory of Want. Ho is aliciy hungry. He is always poor, out of luck and frieiid'cvs. The meanest creatures despise him, ind even the fleas would desert him for a veloci pede, lie is so spiritless and cowardly that even while his exposed teeth are pretending a threat the rest of hisfare is apologizing for it. And he is to homely 1 so scrawney, and ribby, nr.d coarse haired, mid pitiful. When he sees yoti he lifts his lip and lets a flash ot his teeth out, and then turns a litilu out ot tht course he was pursuing, depresses his head a bit, and strikes a long, soft-footed trot through the sage brush, glancing over his shoulder at you, from time to time, till he is about out of easy pistol range, and then he stops and lakes a liberal survey of yon; he will trot fifty yards and then slop :i:a:n another fifty and stop asraiu ; and finally the gray of ins gliding ooily blends with tho gray of tho sage-hush, and he disappears. Ail this is when you make no demonstration against hiin ; but if you do, he duvelopea a livelier interest in his jotirney.and instant ly electrifies bis heels and puts such a deal of real estate between himself and your weapon, that by tho time you havo raised tbe hammer you seo that vu need a minio rifle, and by the timp yon hive got him in line you need a rifled canon, and by the time you have "drawn a bead" on him you see well enough that nothing but an unusually long-winded streak of lightning could reach him whero he is now. But "it you start a swift-footed dog after him, you will enjoy it ever so much CFpeciallv if ft is it dog that has a good opinion of himself, and has boon brought up to think he knows something about speed. Hie cayote will go swing ing gently off on thnt deceitful trot of his, and every little while he will smile a IraiKtful smile over his shoulder that, will fill that dog entirely full of encourage ment and worldly ambition, and make him lay his head still lower to the ground, and stretch his neck still further to the front, and pant more fiercely, and stick his tail out straighter behind and move his furious legs with a yet wilder frenzy, and leave a broader and broader, and higher and denser cloud of desert sand smoking behind, and marking his long wake across the level plain ! And all this lime the dog only a short twenty feet behind the cayote, and to save the soul of him he cannot get perceptably closer; and lie begins to get aggravated, and it makes him madder and madder to see bow gently tbe cayote glides along and never pants oi sweats or ceases to smile : and he grows still more and more incensed to see bow shamefully he has been taken in by an entire stranger, and what an ignoble swindle that long, Fofl- t'ooted trot is; and .next ho notices that he is getting fagged, and that tho cayote actually has to slacken speed a little to keep from running away from him anu fVfevi that town-dog is mad in earncst,and be begins to strain and ween and swear, and paw the sand higher than ever, and reach for the cayote with concentrated and desperate energy. This "spurt" finds him six teet behind the gliding enemy, and two miles lrom his friends, And then, in an instant that a wild new hope is lighting up in his face, the cayote turns and smiles blandly npon bim once more, and with a something about it which seems to say: "Well, I shall have' to tear myself away trom you, bub business is business, nnd it will not do for me to be fooling along this way all day" and forthwith there is a rushing sound, nnd the sudden splitting ot a long track through the atmosphere, and be hold the dog is solitary aud alone in the midst ot a vast solitude ! It makes his head swim. He stops, and looks all around ; climbs the nearest sand-mound and gazes into the distance; shakes hi head reliectively, and then without a word, he turns and jogs along back to his train, and takes up a humble Dosuion under the hindmost w agon, and feels unspeakably mean, and ' looks ashamed, and hangs his tail at half-mast tor a week. - The Cobxer iw Cheese. The unex pected coi ner in the cheese market has taken the trade itself by surprise. Few dealers wero prepared, and the majority now find themselves with little or no Block, and are unable to get sufficient to sudpIv their customers, while a few fortunate bouses hold all thero is in the countrv. .':' Estimates current in the trade give less than 40,000 cheeses in the fetate, dis tributed as follows: 25,000 in New York City, 5,000 lo 6,000 in the eanal. and 5,000 to 8,000 iu the State, almost all of which is owned by the New York dealers, against. 100,000 in this market a vear affo. udoo o 16o to 17o basis. Upon this dealers based their expectations ot an advance, which has been gradual, but as yet only partly realized, 20o being the point fixed, to which the price is to be put, aud at which exporters are offer ing gooas. All interior grades are sympathizing in the advance, and, there seems to be little doubt that at least present prices will be maintained unlit the new ; orop comes upon the market, as the old stock will be Bcarcely sufficent to carry the trade till that time. However, it is ex pected, the new crop will be in market earlier than usual, as dairymen have been In the habit of making butter near y a month before putting their milk into cheese. Tbe higher piiee ot cheese and the lower price of butter will effectually prevent this the presept season.; ,' ,, New York Commercial Bulletin. Sabbath Headaches. Sunday with many people is a day ol general headacne. J artieularly is this true with women. Many causes tend to proiluco this reanlt, some of the most obvious of which wo think are the lol lowing: 1. Overwork on Saturday. We do not blatno housekeeper for wishing to get their work done so as to have as little work to do cn the Sibbath as possible. But it housework could be so arranged that those who perform it could have less to do on Saturday, it would bo a great bleeping, lhis over work causes weariness of tho bodyj and when the physical life H dull it is im possible for the brain to be very active. o Sunday, the day of all days which should bo devoted to the culture of mind and heart, is idled away in trying to re lieve distresses brought on by txtra labor performed on Saturday. 2. Lying abed later Sunday morning. Working hardtr and getting more tired on Saturday, people are less inclined to Tise early the next morning, and this alone is sullicient to make us feel misera ble all dav.- It is a very prol'.riu cause of ill1. We have known enumerable troubles to rise from this cause, and headache is the most common. 3. Irregularity in taking meals. Many people, w ho, through tho week, take their meals with marked uniformity, oltt-n lake, breakfast and dinner an hour or iv later, and supper perhaps a:i Lour or two earlier. It in pariug s; rane how strangely people act with their stomachs on Sunday. Many havo no dinner at all, nnd lake tea iu the middle ot the after noon. Others tret up a dinner, the, dinner of the week, and going without supper, defer it till late in the afternoon. Both ot thee wo denounce as being tho very acme of folly. We do not think that persons ought always to tat tbe same food or the same amount as on otber days. People are generally supposed to use their mind on the Sabbath in one way or another, and some kinds of food are not as good to take when the mind is to be actively engaged, as others; neither is the same amount necessary as when muscular efforts are to be called into action. Many people, however. when they wish to give undivided atten tion to a sermon, will frequently eat as hearty food as they would it they were lo perform some manual labor, in which every muscle of tho body were to be called into exercise. With their over crowded stomachs they fall asleep, and wonder why they wire to sleepy iu church. To this it may bo objected that for some it is impossible to have dinner at the same. time, as Sabbath school comes at that. hour. Yes, we know this is the ease, but the custom is fast passing away. It is very poor economy so to have it. Any hour iu the day is better than t'oe dinnr hour, when everybody is hungry. No one can serve God as f'aithluily with an empty or deranged stomach as with a full om 4. Women sit with their heads covered during church services. Why would it not bo as well for them to take tiff whatever they wear cn their heads as it is for men T Oftentimes what a relief it is to uncover the bead for a few minutes, particularly if the audience is large. W hy not let it remain un covered until the services are through? Probably few aro aware of the immense amount of discomfort caused by this practice. Let the article worn on the head be a little heavy or tight fitting, as is not tinfrequeutly the case, and the difficulty is much increased. When this practice shall have become extinct, an invaluable blessing will be conferred upon women. JJuss. Tlouyhman. A Staktlixo Conversation. A few days past we were startled by hearing a conversation between two rata behind tho baso board ot our office. The con versation began thus : "Hello, Shorty" this wo learned was a nick-name giyen to a rat that had lost his tail in a steel-trap "I'm tjlad to see you. I want you to come and help me to-night to gnaw a hole into this print ing office, and we'll have lots of fnn. We can write an editorial for the- next paper." "What would you write about, Tickle toe?" "Oh, I'd write an article on cats. I'd say that it bad just been ascertained that the bite of a cat was deadly poison, and all persons who valued their lives should kill their cats at once. What a jolly time we'd have then." "Ha ! ha 1 Well, old Ticklstoe, you are a brick, but what is there to eat in a printing office y "Oh 1 sometimes they leave the paste pot in reach. One night I gnawed a roller, but I did not like the taste of the printer's ink, and the next night 1 played a jolly joke on the long-nosed old editor, I drank up all the ink on his table." "Why, didn't it make yon sick ?" "Oh, no, I just swallowed some blot ting paper, and it contradicted the effect, aa old Mrs. Partington says." "Then you have been lu there before?' "Oh, yes, I had a nice hole on the other side, but the lantern-jawed old knight of tho quill stopped it up with a whisky bottle." "Was the bottle full ?" "Why, you astonish me ! a wbieky bottle lull in a newspaper office ?" " Well, I never knew one to stay full long.'? ;v A yonna ijenlleman who recently' look the school census of Burlinjton, Yt, was met t one honae by a fun-loviag yonnn lady, who, at the usual .question whether thero bad been any births in the family since the lust school census replied i "The occupants of this bouse are three old maids, two of tbcm sick, and a toni-eat ; don't you think the prospoet pretty slim t " The young man blushed and left. , Ilnmllitv iz a good thing to hav, pro vided a man iz sure he bas got the right kind. v Tbare never is a time in a kat's life when she iz so humble as just before she makes np her mind tew pounce onto a chicken, or jmt alter she. baz caught and t'jtv.'i i;-.-m.;;j .: -:.

He had marked mora than twenty fnncv dishes that is, rich things that a sick Yankee will studiously avoid. And he told the waiter to bo , sure anil bring him plenty of hard-boiled i tux and ice ceam. Tbe other nighl. about 12 o'clock, three or four of them got together iu a room and ordered hard- boiled eggs and ice cream for supper. Shccklet says they will never get around tho world it they live in other Oonntries as they live here. They do not seem to eat much, but they live on the most "outlandish" food. They seom to think all the hotels are '. under one itMuagemeut, if wemsyjndzo from their movements. A lot of them went into lie Ebbill House, took break-, , fast, aud walked off without paying or . making any explanation. When tbev first came ttiey were nearly all quartered I'liugton. home went to other hotels. Now they arc scattered all over tbe city, some in hotels, others in board- oiics. But the prinoipal officers of tho t-mbascy ail stay at tho Arlington. I was standing at lire office of the Arling ton when an angular faced Jap came up, with baggage on his arm, and said to the clerk : "Me goin' away, no more." "Where are yon Me won't be herd goinj ?" said tUo clerk. "Me goiNl "Wilfyou "Me coiiJ to Ebbitt Houso." give up yonr room 7 ' Ti tri am! t ma .tVni ft 1 1 Isi dr a vetTn free other' fellows come from Ebbitt"'" House take our p!acr." So they go to the Imperial, Metropoli- ! tan, Wel-kers, Wormly, and all over. The hotel-keepers like it. They can make from ten to twenty dollars average a day out of each Jap, from Iwakura to llokepoke, and it will be tound that tne Government will have such bills to pay for the same Japs tor the same time at two or -three different hotels. If any one happens to twit them about their eurions antics, they say, "Me don't care ; me get plenty of money, and me goin' to spend it. Some of them smoke opium almost continuously. The chambermaids at the hotels think "it's fnr.nv madlm tnhflvut they 8moke.H Tbey" have a bag full of ivory pieces and a board on wbich they -play a game that seems to be very amus ing to them. Tbe ether evening a party got together in a room and commenced playing the game. At intervals, when a player seemed to be checkmated, tbey laughed boisterously, and went through, all sorts of performances, such as turn ing hand-springs and standing on their heads. As I remarkod above it is bard to tell, from the appearance, who are ambassa dors and who are followers and servants. ' These eccentric freaks are probably tho . diversions of the latter in all classes. A correspondent of the Detroit 7K bune describes at some length a tearful carse of hydrophobia, where the man was in convulsions, "barking like a dog, frothing at the mouth, and making stren-v ' nous efforts to bite everything that cama near. ' During these convulsions the pa tient wonld seize the pillows from bis bed in his teeth and shake and rend them with all the seeming ferocity of an angry ' dog. An intense dread ot water also exhibited itself. The doctors decided to place the patient upon the same treat- -mont which had been successful in a former case, wbich, for tbe aid it may be to others who suffer from this disease, we here give, as follows : Tbe injection . ander the skin of large doses of mor phine, aud the administration of large doses pf castor, wbich is a pow erful anti-spatmiodic About one j;rain of the sulphate of morphine was injected under the skin ouce in four hours, and a half a drachm of the pow-' dered castor, mixed with syrup, given internally. The effect was to produce sleep iu half an hour, when the convul sions returned at intervals of about an ; hour aud a half until nine o'clock Sun--" day morning when the last convulsions occurred, after which he suffered severely from obstinate vomiting until Monday, at ten o'clock, vvbeu that also ceased, leaving bim comparitively easy, but much prostrated. Since that time he has gradually improved, and is now, to all appearances, quite well. In addition to the above treatment small quantities ' of chloroform were inhaled at times, ' and on Sunday morning the patient was ' wrapped in a woolen blanket wrung out of a warm solution of muriate of amonia, ' eighteen or twenty grains to the ounce. This was the treatment which checked' this fearful m ilady, and which the doc-' tors, for the sake of humanity are anx--ious should be published to the world i and thoroughly tested.
