WHAT THE NEW ORGANIST DID. CHARLES BARNARD. In It nearly divided tlm clinrcri. Tim pew owner.) were indigriAnt, the deacons proteHtvd, I'arKuii Mildinity poured what little oil ho had on the tronliled watera, and the choir repitrncd, Thu old meet ing house was fucked to ho foundations!. And till this turmoil' becaimo the niufii! coniinitteu liRd, at the siijrtreRtion of th organist, put a cornet player henide the organ to lead the congregational ning inir. Dreadful propoal, was it not? The idea ol having a horn in church ! A French horn I You know what wicked peoprte the French are. Think of having the name instrument they use in the Jar well, you know as well as I do that some lolka are no hotter than they ought to be. A French horn, indeed 1 Think of it I No wonder Deacon Pipples said that the rising generation was a way- ard generation, seeking after ungodly uveniious. Now, you know mv view. I don't care what instrument we use in church, rovided we praise God musically and soberly, as we ought. If a horn or vio lin will help us any, I eo for it. Deacon Squitggles said I ought to be ashamed. 1 latiilieil, anil told him thai it 1 read the scriptures right, David danced before liu Lord, and ail vised the temple choir to use) cymbals even the loud-sounding y in lulls. lie shook Ins head, and said there were rave doubts about that pnssage. Per haps the word dance translated meant something else. "Hop," I suggested. The deacon went nwny sorrowful, and said I was a backslider. It's not a long story. Let ine tell it to you. . ... . We had sat under a lady organist lor yearssat under, in a figurative sense. Y e had groaned weekly under her weak ly infliciions for a long time. She was low between joints how can I tell it ? her itiel did not touch the pedals I The effect was peculiar. The organ seemed ready to topple over every Sun day. Some said thu organ had iu bass notes. Bless you t What did they know about it? They could not tell one tunc trotn another. .. , . , .., - , She, the organist, had a weekness -for the reeds, y The 'reed stops, ns you know, have their lij.tle weakness, like the rest of is. This particular weakness is to et out of tune. -'Never mind," said le. Ttiny are sweetly pretty alter the long prayer. '' MaKe you think ol aiigx-ls long clothes ', singing .through.' ,a cloud. .'-..'. Her voluntaries were remarkable. She harrnssed tho Parson, and kept everybody on the alertj for who could tell when she as a goilig to stop. Every other nun- le we said : ''This is the end the clos- pgxihoi'il has. cpme.'l . Rut ' no ; it had . till not. More-closing chords: followed Mft Were near 4isiractett with ' hopes de- At'last soino" benevolent voting man had the. goodness to marry her and take er away. , Bless him I How we con- gratulale him and ourselves. We could not blame heaven tor giving er short le-limbs ; but then, she might lUjeastj have played something besides Hoi' owu compositions, and could have safely neglected her beloved trumpets nd oboes. , . . The, next Sunday the man came. He was a stout fellow, and his coal had very long slcoves, and Dis'trowsors wero ex tra large. They were none too long to be becoming. Ho could reach anything in Uio shape ot keys, stops or pedal, man age the swell, draw tho top light hand slop, and play on the lower bank at the same instant. Clever man, he said, Clever in both the English and Auieii can senses. i . The first Sunday he presided the folks said that the committee had repaired the organ. It had not sounded so well (or a long time. Its deep and majestic tones shook the air, pervaded the church with solemn harmony, and made Ueacon Suuatrcles' youngest cry. He is , not precocious child, aud did not ask to see the nioukev. . , - The ruusio that day was a revelation to most or the people, and there was a sal isfied buzz among the folks on the steps when the church was oul. 1 lungs ltn roved from week to w.eek. One or two wholiad backslid of late, returned aud really came to church half a day came to hear the music. Deacon Squnggles reproved their' motives, and accepted their, renewed pew-rout complacently. About tho blih Sunday after the new administration Parson Mildtnay announ ced that the last bymu would be sung by the eonirregalion. With lear and trem bling they listened to hear what tune would be given out. After the nrst oar their fears were aliayed. There was no mistaking the melody of "Uuke Street, played distinctly and accurately on a single loud stop. At the end tho people struggled to their icet, and the singing began. 1 he result was peculiar and not lovely. Did 1 not leel sure that you knew all about it, 1 would give you detailed description of it, Congrega tional noise 1 You have heard iu Does n't Congregational singing always re. uiiitd you ol those lamous lines concern ing the little girl, who, "When she was good, she was very, very good And when sbo wua bai she was horrid." The sermon was lost that day. The people went home to their dinner dissat isnea, ana uoped it wouia noi ue trie attain. ... . The next Sunday evening brought ihe explosion, no j,, WBS announced in the morning that there would be an extra iorvloejof sonaj 4riiaIf-pasTacvcfi Jhat evening. 3 f.

Our organ is behind tho pul it, just where it ought to be. . Every body woke up, and yon might have heard pin drop. The young marl bowed and apoke as follows : "My friends : We meet here every eek for prayer aud praise. We come to lilt our hearts to heaven in i a nk fulness and joy.

Ilctiee ii gives instruciion about the culture of many varieties Tor whirlt fi-w if nny orders nre likely lo be received either for seeds or roots. , Perenniel flowers are not so numerous nor so common as Annuals. They nre not, as a rule, so easily yi'ow'n from seeds, nnd I hey do nol generally bloom until the plants are a year old. Some of lhem nre t'opnnieJ by cutlini;, offsets, or divisions of Ihe roots. Tney do not ns a.cbiss make its line a show during the latter ptirt of the summer as the snniltil, hut some of-lhem nre quite desirable for flowering earlier in the season, while others excel in tho irorgeotisness of their flowers. I will mention some of the most de il 'u'ulu or botli lucsij classes. . The lllustrHlioiis are furnished by Mr. Vick from the Uuide. : The' Aqiiilegin or Columblnbis nn old flower, but not so common or well known as It deserves to be.

Cnmpanilla or iVi 11 Flower, Is also ft desirable flower, easily grown ft'otn iced, aud quite showy, various colors. " Digitalis or Foxglove is of the same class.

Hollyhocks i,f the best vnrietles nre very showy ntld suitable for large grounds, and the cut flowers arc us d with good ehVcl in decorations. t Perennial Fea is a well known climbing plant, deserving generul culture, Fenstemon is less common, but deserves to be better kunwti. It is one of Ihe prettiest of perennial flowers. Some of Ihe varieties nre used as green-house or iK-ddinir plants. - The Pansy must be mentioned in this 1 1 si tltotttfh often classed among the snntlnls. The Picole and Double Pink are among fhe oldest and best or gurden flowers.. They almost rival the rose ih frsgrntioe nnd Is attty. Good varieties are obtained from seed, but the finest, like the Citrnalion, (Ire propagated from cuttings or layers. They require a sheltered situation, or a cold frnnl". for protection in severe winters. - Sweet William is another of Ihe Dianlbus tribe, but more hardy. It is of the easiest growth from aeed or division of the roots, mid Improved varieties are very prelly. The Bromplon slock and Wall Flower are beautiful aud irsgraut, but the plants are nol quite hardy in our northern ilimiili-.

Saturday a gentleman living near Mndlsnn station, on the Memphis an) Little Uoek road, left his home to go to the village He had nut proceeded more than two hundred yards, mounted on lineal desoentlsnt of Balsam's ass, when he enconntered a great, greasy Hack bear. The bear was astonished, and ilhont taking time lo thin'r. hurrinl nn a scaly-bark hickory and seated himself very comfortably on n limb, thirty Of tort y feel Irotn the ground. The farmer was completely puzzled. If he rode back lo bis limine to get his gun the bear would surely eseape. He tied the mule, a long-eared melancholy mole, forty or fi ty years of age, to the body of the tree. The mule was bridle-wine, but uo bridle would hold ,im. .,) ft lrong leathern cable was kept coiled about hi ne.-k. With thin lie was lasiened to the tree. The farmer started to the house, and Bruin, divining his plans, deemed it proper to get away. lie doubtless ex pected that a gun was coming. He came slowly down, tearing the bark from ihe body of the tree. It rallied about the sleepy mule's head, who dtad nut yet seen the be:ir, and dreamed' not of the proximity ol the ugly beast. The bear di-scfiided slowly till he was within live feet of ihe mule's great ugly head. Then it ws that the stupid, innocent, unsii-pi cting mule hulked up. He had never seen :i bear before. His knees smote one another. K grew pale in ihe face. His eyes were projecting fn la hi head the tanner said half a footi His tail was slowly lifted, the hair turn ed awry, till it stood at an angle of for ty-five degrees above his spinal column, and then it was thai the mule " hoved a sigh aud smoled a smile." It was an unearthly sound ; the farmer, fifty yards away, says it shook the ground where he stood watching the progress of events. The bear suddi nly twin el himself about and reascended to his perch. The mule swooningly fill at the base of the tree, He lay null and apparently lifeless 4or a time, when Bruin again attempted the descent ; but, the terrified mule howled and roared even more terribly and pite onsly w hen the bark bi g in to fall, anrt bedashed and danced abjut.the tree 'so trnticilly that Bruin hesitated, and final ly, in stupefied amazement, gat upon the limb upon whuh he first s it. The farmer came wilh his rifle, and a bullet soon stopped the pulse beats of the bear. It fell heavily beside the mule, and strange to tell, as told to us, the mule nnd bear died side by side the one of a mortal wound, the other of mortal terror. The bear was still black as Erebus ; the male's; face was siill white with au indescriba ble agony of mortal fear. . Coolness in Danger. There may be a heroism ia every day life greater than that on Ihe battle field. One who could maintain cool courage in circumstances) ike Ihe following, would be brave anywheres A trench paper relates that at a Vil lage near Floreuville (Luxeinboargh): a geiilleman walking along the side of. t wood saw some bees swarming on at straggling brand) of an oak tree. Jla went lo fetch a hive, and returned wills a wood-cutter named Guiot who climbed ihe tree, and silling astride the branch, cut off the extremity of it unou which the swarm hung. And unexpected result follpwed ; instead of falling to the ground, the swarm dispersed, and nsinir like a whirlwind, settled on the head of unlucky tjitiot, who was still sitting on' ihe branch, forty-five feet from the ground. : " " ll;e bystanders shuddered. Snrelv they thought, he will be seized with gid diness, and tortured by a thousand stings he must tail in the ground, liut Guiot called up all his strength of mind and re mained until the ewram had formed two; long wreaths banging from his temples and waving as he moved: then, half blinded by the insects, which also cover ed his face and body, he contrved to de ceud from his elevated position, taking i he greatest care not to irritate this liv- l ig mantle.
