WHAT THE NEW ORGANIST DID.

little oil ho had on the tronliled watera,
and the choir repitrncd, Thu old meet

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-

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.

lie shook Ins head, and said there were
rave doubts about that pnssage. Per
haps the word dance translated meant
"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
. ... .
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
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

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

"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

wuro thai the congregational singing is

sometimes bad, aud offends more than

sing with confidence.
"Secondly.' Do not attempt to sing
parts. . Let all sing the melody. Iet
hose who think they can sing tenor,
Ito or bass, give up their parts and join
the sopranos in singing the air or melo
dy. Ot course the gentlemen will sing
one octave lower than the , ladies.
The organ will give the harmony, the
oices the song. 15 y the aid ot these
tiles our singing will be easy and effect-

"Now to help yon, I will have the

PERENNIAL FLOWERS. Best Varieties 8, New and Old, With Illustrations.
One prest excellence of Vick's Floral Guide, is that II is evidently written for the purpose
of (llmisiii iiiformtilion about flowi rs, uiul piomotini; a taste for their culture rather
thiin to tret niotiev from lis readers. 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. The ilimblu vur'py is tiniu.' a novelty, but the single are as pretty and
bloom enrly. They pre easily raised Ironi seed, nud bear hard trealmenL ,i .
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.
The C'miua and Wiceutra are two of ihe best tvnninl flowers, hut often ctitised dmonsr
tli Dahlias and oilier, tuberese-rooled plants. .-The Cauns, is easily raised from seeds
started In a hot bed. i ,,'..
Delphinium or Fereunlut Larkspur is a mncnificeut flower and ought to be In every
garden, lis color Is the frtifl blue imaginable.
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-.

Bear and Mule.
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.

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.
W hen he arrived on terra Jirma a biva
was placed on his shoulder, but threu
hours elapsed before the bees would take
possession of their new home. ' When!
