How( to live Ninety Years. ."With a good appetite three -times a day, delicious sleep, and not an ache or a pain in the whole body, the mind all the time fully alive to what is eroiner on in the world, and all the time in good spirits." This is said of the late ex-Governor Thorp, of New York He retired at 9, and rose at 6, tak ing a nap in the forenoon, and sometimes in the afternoon also. breakfast -at 8. dinner at 1, and tea at sundown. In suitable wea -ther he spent a greater part of the forenoon in his. garden, directing .his inen, and assisting them, and for a short time in the afternoon .was employed in the same way. He used no spirituous liquors, hut .took claret wine every day at din ner. There are three things in the above narration which, if per sistently carried out in early life, would do, more than all others to ward giving all an enjoyable old age, namely, regularity in eating, abundant sleep, and a large daily exposure to out-door air. . .Regularity in eating, either two .of three times a day, with noth ing, whatever between meals, not an atom of anything, would al , roost banish dyspepsia in a single generation; as frequent eating is the cause of it in almost all cases, especially if irregular and fast. Abundant sleep and rest from childhood make nervous. disease a rarity; to insufficiency of regu lar sleep, and insufficency of rest, may well be attributed nine tenths of all sudden deaths, and a premature wearing out before the age of sixty years. All hard workers, whether of body or brain ought to be in bed nine hours out of the twenty-four, not that so much -sleep is required, but rest, after the. sleep is over; every ob servant reader knows how the system yearns for rest in bed after a good sleep, and it is a positive gain of energy to indulge in it. Every hour that a man is out of doors is a positive gain of life, if not in a condition of chilliness, because no in-door air is pure; but pure air is the natural and essen tial food of the lungs, and the purifier of the blood, the want .of which purification is the cause or attendant of every disease; while every malady is alleviated or cured by an exposure to out-door air. If city wives and daughters would average two or three hours every day in active walking in the open air,, it would largely add to exemption from debility4 sick ness and disease, and would ma terially add to thP rlmripsrip. fin- of life301 a0d the ayeraSe duration W?e Avalanche asserts that the girls of Silver City, Ida ho, were compelled, during the , co d nights of the past Winter to ejugs of h t WP er Tw'ith them, to keep from freezing; and irreverently adds that the young .men of that place ought to bl . ashamed of themselves The ' young ladies who indulge'in this practice probably think that hot '.water is the next thing to matri mony; most people find them selves in hot water as soon as thev get married. The Avalanche, tells of two young damsels, who adopt ed this substitute fpr something more agreeable, and kicked the cork out of the jug, deluging the bed with hot water. How the Avalanche man got hold of the item is not explained, and will probably remain a mystery, but " i.t is .surmised, he squeezed it out , of one, of the iris,; BETTER THAN GOLD. Better than grandeur, better than gold. Than rank and a title a thousand fold, Is a health? body, a mind at eae And simple pleasures that always please A heart that cm feel tor another s woe, And share biR joys with a genial prow, With sympathy large ennueh to enfold All men as brothers, is better than gold Better than gold is a conscince clear, Thodnh toiling for bread in an humbl sphere, Doubly blest with content and health, Untried by th lust or cares of wealth Lowly living and lofty thought Adorn and ennoble a poor man's cot. For mind and morals in natureplau Are the genuine tet-t of a gentleman. Better than gold is the sweet repose. Of the sons of toil when heir labors close Better than gold is the poor man's Rleep And-the balm that drops on bis sluinbe deep, Bringing sleeping .draughts to his downy bed Where luxury pillows bis aching head His simple opiate labor deems A shorter roal to the land ot ur-a:us Better than gold is the thinking mind. j hat m the realm of books can find, A treasure surpassing Australian ore. And live with the great und good of vore, The sage's lord and the poet's lay. J he glories of empires passed away. Hie world's greatest drama will thus un fold. And yield a, pleasure better than gold. Bettor than gold is the peaceful home, Where all the fireside chanties come. The shrine of love, the heaven of life, Hallowed by mother, or sister, or wife However humble the home may be, Or tried with sorrow by heaven s de cree, y The blessings that never were bought or sold And center there are better than gold. Business Law6. The following brief compilation of business laws contains the es sence ot a large amount of legal verbiage : Jt is not legally necessary to say n a note "lor value received." A note by a minor is void. a contract maae witn a minor is void. A contract made with a lunatic is void. a note ootainea oy iraua, or from a person in a state of intoxi cation, cannot be collected from the maker. If a note isiost or stolen, it does not release the maker: he must ay it, if the consideration for which it was triven and the miount can he. proven. An endorser of a note is exempt from liability if not served with notice of dishonor within twenty four hours of its non-payment. .Notes bear interest only when so stated. . Principles are responsible for the acts of their agents. .kach . individual in a partner- hip is responsible for the whole amounts of the debts of the firm. Ignorance of the law excuses no one. It is a fraud to conceal a fraud. The law compels no one to do m possibilities. An agreement, without consid eration, is void. Signatures made with a lead pencil are good in law". A . receipt for money is not all- conclusive. He was an Advontist, which id not hinder his being a Cook County Granger. He believed for long time that the world was coming to an end last Monday, which aid not prevent his haviner on hand numerous stacks of hay. He was pious which did not keep lm irom seeing his shortcominsrs. But he muffled himself in his as cension robes last Monday, and mounted on one of those stacks f hay to get a good start for the New Jerusalem, which did not keep him from going to sleep, after he had waited awhile for the grand event. Peacefully he dozed, until just before the rain when some heathenish boys set fire to the hay-stack, and, as the flames circled around him, he awoke. He supposed it was all over, and philosophically remark ed "In h 11, just as I expected!" According to the New York World a correspondent wrote com plaining of another New York journal, which he had been a bor rower of for fourteen years He concluded with : "Disgusted with such reckless and sensational jour nalism,,! have returned my copy to,the man it belongs to, and will hereafter borrow some other paper." A New York man, aged ninety three is living in matrimonial .fe licity with his sixth wife. ' ' ' A Sea. Captain's Marvelous Yarn. Capt. John O. Holmes, who re, .cently arrived at San Francisco irom Valparaiso, is responsible for the following story, which he cle clares to be strictly true: The Captain had been cruising among the Society islands, when, putting into a small cove, one day, tor wa ter, a number of natives, as usual, came on board to trade. Among them was a stout, comely maid eng of 18, to whom the mate took si p-rpat lane v. She was the daue-h ter of a chief, and reciprocating the mate's aflection the twain were married, a grand feast honor ing the occasion, wi-wi was the name of the bride, signifying in the language of her country, "JJitr Fish," or to interpret more particularly, "Great Swimmer," she having on extended notoriety as an expert in the art of swim ming. Having married the mate she took up her .quarters on the ship, much to the dislike of the Cantain, who, sailor-like, felt the unseemliness of having a woman aboard. However, the vessel left the island and stood for Tahiti, where me loaded with oranges and bore thence for .Valparaiso. On the voyage this incident oc curred : YVi-Wi, the mate's wife, was one evening performing her ablutions near the bows. There was a moderate sea running, not, however, enough to incommode the turtle, which could be seen floating all around the ship. Some of these were of very large size and known as the green turtle. It happened while the fairislander was so. engaged that the ship top pled her bow under and picked up a sea, which, passing over, car ried Wi Wi with it far to leeward. The crew were at supper, but the man at the wheel saw wi-wi as she went over, and shouted,. "Man overboaid." At this cry, terrible on shipboard, the crew rushed on deck; the ship was brought to, and a whale boat lowered. Bvl this time Wi-Wi had drifted some distance to leeward, and night laiimg mane the tasK ot rescuing her one ot extreme difficulty But the mate was in the boat, and, though half crazed at the mishap which had betailen his dusky wite, resolved to make every efforts to save her. bo he unreel his men with telling earnestness. They, too, shared his spirit and pulled away on their dangerous venture. But night tell and no sign of the unfortunate Wi-Wi was seen. The men gave her up as lost, but the mate was still hopeful. "Wi-Wi is a fibh," said he, "and one night at sea will not hurt her. We will lay by till morning." So they lav in the boat that niorht shoutinir. but hearing no response In the morning the mate saw a dark ob ject on the top of a surge a long way on. "There is something ov er there," said he; "give way for t." "it's only a turtle," answer- the men. "Never mind," re plied the mate, "give awav." They gave way, and after a hard pull, the sea having risen, reach ed the object. It was an immense turtle, and on 'the back thereof at Wi-Wi. She hailed the boat rew with a cry of joy, and plung- ng into the sea swam to the boat. The turtle was then secured and towed to the ship, where Wi-Wi was received with three-cheers and a tiger. A glass of brandy stimulated her and made her lo quacious. She told the story of going overboard, how being bruis ed by striking against the rajl she could not reach the ship by Swim ming, but, floating at the mercy of the sea, was at last thrown on the back of the turtle, which was complacently oscillating on the surface of the water. "But for this singular assistance," said the Captain, "Wi-Wi must have per ished, and it is to he regretted," headded in a choking voice, "that the creature which had so pro videntially saved the life of a hu man being should have subse quently been utilized in the form of turtle soup." Robert Collyer says the children must have less study more fun. He is right. There is the boy in the family across the way. Last Thursday evening he put a dead mouse iu his mother's work-basket, attached a split stick to the tail of the next door cat, set the vinegar faucet up in business, palmed hirusplf oft'as a ghost on the hired girl when she went down the cellar after the butter, besmeared his father's choice bantam rooster with blue ink, and finally wound up the entertain ment by tying the boiler to a strange dog's tail, and slipping down on the slush and hurting his. back. His exasperated father hardly knows which to hunt;first -r-.th strange dog with the boiler or.iKpbert GoDy ev.-Danbury News. PROFESSIONAL CARDS. P.
