man will go bliod, and mad, too,
from Hear; I have seen it happen,
aud if you don't mind listening, will
tell you the atory. I waa apprentic
ed to a builder when 1 left school,
and soon got to like the trade very
much, eiecially when tbe work was
perilous, and (rare me a chauce to
outdo other lad in daring. 'Spider'
was my liick-nauie in those day s,
given partlj on account of my long
legs, for I had outgrown iny pro
portions, aud partly because they
aid I could crawl along a roof, like
my namesake. When I was about
three aud twenty, I was working
with the famous Mr. and
went flown to Swansea with his
picked bands, to carry out a con
tract he ha4 taken in that town.
While there I fell in love witb the
prettiest girl I bad seen in Wales,
aud this is saying a good deal. For
a time I fancied she liked me, and
that I was getting on very well with
my love making, but I. soon found
my mistake, for an old lover of hers
joined our men, and Mary gave me
the cold shoulder directly. iou
may believe this sweetheart of hers
(who was called Beu Lloyd) audi
were not the best friends in the
world ; but I am not the sort of a
fellow to harbor malice, aud w heu
the biddings to the wedding went
round, and I knew that my chance
was gone, I made the best of it; I
kept my sore heart to myself, and
deteruiiaed to beat down jealousy,
by being great elm ins with ben.
I went to the wedding; and there
were not many days when I did not
steal half un h j:ir to sit by his fire
side, which was as bright and cosy
and bouielike as you'd wish to see
Mai v being tbe soul of order and
industry. It is not, jwihajis, the
usual way of driving out envy, to
go aud lcok ut the happiness anoth
er mau has done you out of, but
then you know the proverb says,
'What is oue man's meat is another
mau's poison : and so it was 1 got
to look upon Mary as a sort of sister,
and Len hud uo cause for jealousy,
although there were plenty of evil
tongues to put him up to it.
- The contract was nearly up, w hen
a' lightning conductor upon one of
the highest chimney's over at Llaue
ly sprung, and the ow ner of the
works oil't led our master the job.
'It's just the sort of thing for you
Ilrtiry,' H.iid Mr. , wheu he
told iii of it.

have. The piiee is a ;ood one, and
tvtrv netiiiv of it shall 1h divided
between ou. We'll not tlx a day
for the work, but take the first calm
morning, find get it done quietly.'
So it was that, some four or rive
mornings alter, w- found ourselves
at l.lanely, and nil ready for a start.
The kite by which tbe line attached
to the block was to be sent over the
chimney, was flown, and did its
work well; the rope whirh was to
haul up the cradle was ready, and
steiminir in. Ben ami I began the

But he only shook and swayed
more and more, groaning, aud cry-'
ing oat that he was lust and I
could see that, if he did not rniud,
he would over-balance.
Get hold of the rod,' I said ; think
ing that, even sprung as was, the
touch of it would give hun cour
age. Where is it boy F he said hoarse
ly ; and theu looking into his lace,
which was turned to me 1 saw that
his eyes were drawn together,
squinting and bloodshot, aud knew
that tbe fright had driveu him blind.
So, pushing myself to him, I placed
my arm around his wvlat, aad work
ed round to the rod, which I pnt in
his hand, and then I looked below
to see whether they were trying to
help us, but there was uo sign. The
yard was full of people, all running
thither aud thither ; and as I after
wards knew, all in tbe greatest con
sternation tbe cradle having fallen
on oue of tbe overseers of tbe works,
killing him on the spot, and so oc
cupying the attentiou of those near
that we unfortunates were for the
time forgotten. I was straining my
eyes in the hopes of seeing some ef
fort made to help us, when I was
startled by a horrible yell aud bro't
to a sense of a new danger, for look
ing round, 1 saw Ben champing
with his teeth and foaming at tbe
mouth, and gesticulating in an un
earthly way. Fear had not only
bliuded him but crazed his brain.
Scarcely had I time to comprehend
this, w hen he began edging bis way
towards me; aud every hair on my
bead seemed to stand on end as I
moved away, keeping as far off as
I could and scarcely dariug to
breath lest he should hear me, for
see me he could not ; that was my
only eonsolatiou. Ouce twice
thrice he followed me round the
mouth of that terribln chimney
theu, no doubt thinking I had falleu
over, he gave up the search, and be
gun trying to get ou his feet. What
could I now do to save his life f To
touch him was certain death to my
self as well as him, for ho w ould in
evitably s-ize me, aud we should
both eo over together. To let him
stand up, was to witness bis equally

membered that if he died, she might

the risk of my life I roared out, '.Sit
still, or yon w ill fall, Ben Lloyd ?
He erotielied down and held on
witb clenched teeth, and shaking.
In after days he told me that he
thought that it was my spirit sent to
warn and save him.
Sit still, I repeated from time to
tune, with aching eyes and br-aiu
for some sign of aid. Each minute
seemed to I; an hour. My lips
grew dry, -my tougue literally clave
to my mouth, aud the prespiration
running down blinded me. At last
at last hotHj came. The crowd
began to gather in the yard, people

So, you see, that morning's work
changed two men's lives.

DotfT FitKEZE THE LITTLE
Gikls. A newspaper correspon
dent writes very sensibly as follows
to a Chicago paper :
"In these cold, blowy, snowy days,
am pained to see tbe efforts of
foolish parents to freeze their little
girls. It is au outrage. Girls should
be dressed Just M oowfortabb as
boys. On tbe contrary, the poor
little shivering things are sent out
into the streets, with their beads
comfortably protected, thick shawls
around their shoulders, which com
paratively need uo protection, their
skirts standing out at an angle of
forty-five degrees, aud their poor lit
tle drum stick legs as unprotected
from the blasts as the legs of a
turkey bunging in a meat stall.
Aud thus we pack off these little
girls to school, with tbeir big beads
to be crammed full of learuiug, at
tbe expeuse of tbeir legs, which at
a tender age, are of more impor
tance than their heads. As a geue
ral rule parents should devote their
entire attention to tbeir little girls'
legs, aud let their heads alone. 1 be
heads will take care of themselves
in due time. The legs are helpless
and need looking after. By taking
care of the heads little girls acquire
kuowledge, such as it is, of music,
drawing, all the modem languages,
botany, the use of the globe, em
broidery, poetry, aud iu general a
little of nothing, and by neglecting
at the same time their legs, they
acquire cold", coughs, headache,
weak backs, pipe-stem legs, hollow
chests, neuralgias and other com
plaiuts, which either send them to
heaven before they ought to go, to
be made iuto premature angels, or,
if they live to grow np, makes them
drag through a miserable, unhappy
ami unhealthy lite.
And all this time yon take your
great, strapping hulks ot boys, who
are never cold, and are twice as
stroug aud hardy as your girls, aud
wrap them up and ut them out iu
thick woolen trousers aud drawirs
and heavy ton boots. The result

duced much imaginary, and some
real suffering, bears were retf
common, and 8ortime Tory beta.
The boldness of these animals on
some occasions is Illustrated by an
event in the town of Addison. Mr.
John Strong moved his family into
that town in February, 1776. He
bad erected a rude hut of logs In
which they Mved. During air ratt
ing in September, while Mr. Strong;
and some of bis neighbors had gone
to Albany to procure provisions
Mrs. Strong and her children, sit
ting about the Are, beard a noise at
tbe door. Looking towards it, she
saw the blauket, which served in
stead of a door, raised up, and art
old bear protruding her bead Into
A pan of milk was on the table,
and a cnaip-kettle of samp had just
been taken from the fire, intended
for supper. The sight of the fire
caused tbe bear to start back. Mrs.
Strong caught up tbe baby, and
ending tbe older children to the
loft, she followed, and drew the lad
dcr otter her. The floor of this loft
was made by laying small polos
does together, which ray amnio
opportunity to Bee all that was pass
ing below. The bear, after rccon-
noitering the place several times,
came in with two cubs. They first
upset the milk that had been placed
ou tbe table for supper. The old
bear then made a dash at the pud
ding-pot, and thrusting in her head
swallowed a large mouthful, and
filled her month with another, bo
fore she found it was boiling hot
Giving a furious growl, she struck
the pot with her paw, upsetting and
breakiug it. She theu set herself
up on end, endeavoring to poke the .
pudding from her mouth, wbining
aud growling all the time. This
was so ludicrous, the cubs sitting
np on eua, one on eaca siae, ana
wondering what ailed their mother,
that it drew a loud laugh from, the,
children above. This seemed to ex
cite the anger of the beast more
than ever, and witb a roar she rush
ed for tbe place where they had es
caped up aloft. This had been cor.
ered up when Mrs. Strong drew np
tbe ladder, and now commenced a
struggle, the boar to get np, and
the mother aad children to keep her
down. After many fruitless at
tempts, the bear gave it up, end to
ward morning movea on. Alter
Mr. Strong's return, ft door made
from slabs split from the bass-wood
and hung on wooden hinges, gave
security from- like inroads in the
future. But few, if any, of the
first settlers were seriously injured
by bears. But a very painful eveut
did occur from an attack of wolves.
Soon after Bennington was settled,
