U1TCLK JBSHJAMIJI'S QEOST. .
In a mixed company the conversation
chanoed to turn upon ghosts. Most of
the comjiany stoutly disbelieved in
their existence altogether. There was,
however, one grave looking stranger,
dressed in funeral black; who, thougTi ho
acknowledged he had never encountered a
ghost, had implicit faith in their exist
ence.
The dispute waxing warm, if was de
cided to collect the opinions of all pres
ent. At length il eaiheto Uncle Benja
min's turn. * rij-.
i* Do joq belie\e in gfeoflts, Uncle Ben
jamin ?" I
441 do," said he,44 and for the best oi
all reasons, because I have soen one." i
I 44 Indeed," said the funeral stranger,
pricking up his ears, 44 would you be kind
enough to favor us with au'aceount ofi
the circumstances ?"
" O, do tell, Undc Benjamin," was
echoed on all sides.
;; Thus adjured, he settled himself into
an attitude, and commenced.
44 It was perhaps thirty years ftgo when
business callcd me to a town some twen
ty miles distant from my own. There
wore no cars in those days, and 1 was
obliged to hire a horse and chaise belong
ing, to a neighbor.
"Being detained to a later hour than
f anticipated, it was past twelve o'clock
when I got back with the horse and chaise
to the house of the neighbor of whom 1
had borrowed it. Ilaving left it, I pro
ceeded on foot towards my own house,
which was perhaps a mile further on.
''Befog; as you may readily suppoee,1
very much fatigued, I considered w hether
it would not be possible .to shorten my
walk. There was a solitary path across
the fields which w&uld diminish the dis
tance fully one half. There was one oh
jection to it, however, ft led through a
graveyard.
"This thought, however did not for a 1
moment deter me. I was not Rlipersti-1
tious. 1 had always laughed at the id?a
of ghosts, and considered them mere tig j
mi nts of a disordered brain. But I was j
doomed?however, I will not anticipate.
I got as far as the graveyard without
meeting any hindrance, auu with a bold,
confident air, leaped the stone wall which
served as its boundary, and found myself
at once within the precincts of the dead.
' Say what you will," continued uncle'
Benjamin, his voice becoming deeper and
more solemn, "there is a feeling of awe,
scarcely to be resisted, which steals over (
one, when he finds himself in the gloom
of midnight surrounded with the relics j
of frail mortality, and considers that ere
manv years he shall be as those around
him."
"But the ghost!" suggested the stern
looking gentleman, wlio was apparently ]
very much interested in the denouement.
"I was coming to that directly," was j
the reply. ,
"As 1 said, 1 jumped over the stone
wall, and proceeded, notwithstanding a
slight feeling of awe with tolerable bold
ness, till I had got, I should think into
about the centre oi the yard.-'
"It was a very dark night. There was
no moon, but a fcw stars dimly twink
ling in the distance,.to light up the dark
ness of the way.
"At this point, from behind a monu
inent which stood beside the path, there I
suddenly strode forth a figure in gfrwtiy
white. The arms were extended, and
one of the hands contained something,
but what it was I could not discover.
" I shall "never forget tlie horrors of that
moment! A sensation Of freezing terror ]
crept over me, and paralysed all' my
limb*? though I would have given worlds:
to have moved from, the spot, there I was j
fixed, and all the while-1* itve feet dis
tance from me stood thafreejuichral tig-1
ure. ? .
Uncle Benjamin paused, as if overcome j
by the recollections of that fearful night,
and every eye was bent upon him with j
eager iuterest. \ ? .. ?
Tlie sad-looking gentleman gazed about j
him in triumphant at this corrol>oration
of his opinions. "
"Proceed, for heaven s sake : he ex
claimed. . _ . I
"Thus we stood, said uncle Benja
min,'looking at each other for I will!
not say how leng. It might not have
been two minutes, yet to me it seemed
an eternity? At length 1 could bear it i
no longer,' but burst forth imperiously?
" In Heaven't nauie, who, and what
are yon IT' * >.? -. . , j
" And what did it say I queried the.)
sad looking gentleman, ncrvou^y pushing
hb chair towards I acie Benjamiu.
44 It /slowly tuwt^ iVigaze full upon j
me, and wUh an unearthly laugh uttered
these words. ...
""?Lor, mister, you am t afraid of me.
now* are you t lw only Polly Ilensfavr,
ceme out to pick solAe yarbs for my o.d
man, what's too sick with t^c cholk . ?
ITie spell was broken. Ihe sober
gentleman sprung to his feet, and amid
a shout of irrepressible mirth wfcacu
which shook the very rafters, called for
his hat, and left with ail possible eipeui-.

KEEPLRO MILK FRO* souaiifo
Milk is a compound substance, made
up of a mixture .of oil, butAcr, sugar,
casein, curd, and water. If allowed to
standstill, the oily matter will rise to,
the top in the form ol. cream. There is
a little free alkali?soda?in the water
of all sweet milk, and without this soda
the water will not have the power to keep
the casein, or curd, dissolved. The su
gar of milk is also dissolved in water
If the sugar can get access to tlie air, it
is constantly inclined to change to an
acid-lactic acid-?just as sweetened wa
ter changes to vinegar, w hen exposed to
air, and we can sue just why milk cur
dles, and how it way be M* sweet.
We aU- know that aoid* destroy ,w
^ neutralize the effccos of alkalies?such as
soda, potash, lime, Ac. As before staged,.
I when the milk is new, there is some free
soda in it, but when some acid is formed (
1 from the mrtk sugar, this acid neutralizes <
the soda, and the water without the soda
cannot dissolve the ca^eiiL but ft sepa
rates into a mass of curd. More
turns to mote acid? apa ip tinie the whole,
becomes quite $our. ?. fto.W there arfc
ways, of preventing this souring. ^ * he
first is, keep the air aw"ky from the milk
as much as you possibly din'. We can
not very well kfisp tfce milji pqvertd^ air
? v.
right, bet. tie oil n citm\ win ch riata
lo the top forms a vers good cover if it is
kupt ta?roJL*i}. l?ihen, it is downed to
keep tie mil* some length of time, great
care hbe>cld be taJ^yii to Vttlkjt still, aud
prfStlTC the CXVU4, 'i'3y4", f^]r ?,.
Tiif?e who^'J in'Jk l^t oncc a day
should dinde it jriio s>evcrat portions,
each portion to 1?e Kept undisturbed tiT!
it is wanted for n*. The second method
is, put into new milk a little extra soda
to' neutralise the acid as fas t as it is
formed. A bit of soda, say of (be bulk
of a marrowfat {?*, to a quart of milk,
will hot injure its taste or qwaffty. while
it wilt often keep it sweet for a <Jay or
more longer than without it. We have
often taken uuik already beginning to
soar, and by stirring is well * little sods,
and boiling it, have re-disttftlurd the curd
and rendered the milk as sweet and good
as when first drawn from the cow. We
kuow tkat sweetened water will turn
1 more rapiily to vinegar?acetic acid?if
it is kept warm. Just so the sugar milk
turns to acid?lactic?sooner if kept
warm, and on this account, the colder
milk is kept the longer it wffl remain
sweet.
It is well known that a heavy thunder
storm will often render the milk speedily
sour. This may be affected in two way* :
the agitation of a thundcr-clap may in
troduce more air into the milk, and the
amount of electricity passing through the
milk may hasten the change of sugar to
acid. We have heard it suggested, with
how much truth we cannot say, though
there is some plausibility in the state
ment, that milk is less likely to be affect
ed by thunder if it is kept in dazed
earthenware instead of metal vessels like
t'n pans ; and also that it will, at such a
time, keep better if the vessels are placed
upon dry wooden benches or shelves,
away from the walls, than if set upon the
bottom of the cellar or milkroom. The
reason assigned is, that the dry benches
or shelves act as non-conductors, and
prevent electricity from going through
the milk in its passage from the clouds
to the earth.
The most important thing in the care
of m-lk, however, is to leave it undis
turbed?uot even moving the vessel, or
agitating the surface, from the time the
milk is strained, until it is required for
use.
The shallower milk vessels arc made,
the ^renter will be the yield of cream, as
it will the more readily rise to the top.?

A Grave Joke ?The Toledo (Ohio)
Blade relates the following :
It is said by the jokers about town ?
we give the story as we hear it?that a
few days since a colored gentleman, who
had become pretty much of a nuisance,
was found dead?drunk. The wags of
the vicinity ordered the Sexton to leave
a collin for a cholera subject, and call in
half an hour. W hen the hearse arrived,
the coffin was duly lifted to its place, and
a small processiou moved towards the
receptacle of dead humanity. When the
party were about lifung the coffin from
the hearse, the subiect revive!, and per
ceiving his critical position he f>urst the
lid, and landed at one bound among the
mourners, a sober man. flis first impulse
a:id his first threats were to flog the
crowd, but perceiving that that would be
undertaking rather a large contract, he *
compromised the matter fbr a nde home
on the hearse. As the cortege returned, all
tlie women ami sossipers ran to the doors
to asoertain why the ooflin was brought
back. They were all duly assured that
the victim Itad come to lile, and he was
pointed out sitting on his own coffin,
whistling, 44 Oh, carry me back to Old
Virg.nny." The best of the joke is, the
the negro has given up drinkir.g. and
worked industriously ever since.
' ? ?
The Coxsuhptiyje.?A correspondent
of the New York Courier, writing from
Madeira, sa>s: " The invalids with their
companions will flock hefc in great num
bers. It is the finest dimate in the
tWrtd for the afflicted with consumption.
Many persons far-gone in that disease
hare been relieved by resorting to this
itJand. It is the principal resort for the
Europeans so afflicted : the climate here
in the winter is like the climate of May
in the United States." "While there
is life there is hope," and we therefore
insert the foregoing with pleasure. Con
sumption is one of the most fatal diseases
of our climate. Its victims are numbered
by thousands, and while ever and anon
remedies are spoken of. there seems to be
110 reliable svstcm of treatment ?no posi
tive cure. Nevertheless, we have known
many conceded consumptives whose lives
liave been lengthened for years. The
great error with the multitude is, that
they delay means of restoration and im
provement until too late, while hundreds,
if may be feared, perish the victims of
imposture and empiri ism.
A Tkt-th Well SAin.?The Southern
.Observer says, with great truth that if
all the time, breath, ink, paper, talents,
energy and seal had been spent on the
single work of giving men knowledge of
the way of life, which have been expend
ed on sectar ian efforts, Che whole world
would long ago have been filled with the
knowledge of "the Lord. Take away from
each denomination of Protestant Chris
tians what is its peculiarity, and there is
enough of truth left to make the believer
of that creed a true Christian. 1.
One op the Ehtaphs.?The Nashua
(N. H.) Telegraph says that the following
epitaph has been placed upon the marble
grave-stone at the grave of Miss Savilia
Janes, who was murdered at New Bos to*,
last winter by llenry N. Sargent;
"Savilia, daughter of George and Sarafc
Jones. Murdered by llenrj N. Sargent, Jaa
uary i3, JS54, aged 17 jeer? and 9 months.
" Thus itll thif lovely, W<v>minp daughter.
