PtTTiXG OCT a Cat. Mr. Joseph
Spinger is a peaceable married man who lives on Detroit Street hear tlie Western city limit, lie ha in his ftnp'.oy a maid servant who has a young man that utt only calls regularly, but often irregularly. The maid servant's beau is possessed of an ap petite that requires frequent satisfying, and duriug his visit to the Spinier man sion, pies, doughnuts, cheese, cookies, cold meat, preserves and other nutritious and palatable articles, disappeared like dew be fore the rooming suu, or hot griddle cakes before a hired niau. Since the panic has demoralized men and things Springer has been trying to econo mize in various directions, aud among other leaks that he sought to stop was that of feeding his hired girl's a beau. Springer even went so far as to tell his handmaid that she could only iccieve visits from her lever on Wednesday and Saturday nights, as the expense of fire, lights and provisions five nights out of seven wab too much. The maiden of all work pouted, burned the toast and served dish water coffee for sever al oiorniugs, but finally accrued to accept the situation aud resumed her wonted cheerfulness. Such was the state of afiairs up to last Friday night, when it appers "Sarah's young man," unable to stands the pangs of hunger or love until Saturday night, rapped at the kitchen door of Springer's house, aud was admitted. About eleven o'clock p. tu. th handmaid, in obedieuce to a hint from her admirer, took the lamp in hand aud procee led down cellar in search of some thing for him to eat. Though she ued everyprecaution not to awaken the Springer family, asleep up stairs, yet, as she opeued th celler door, a strange cat bounded out Into the room unbeknown to her. and a moment later emitted one of those sad and melancholy howls that cats are wont to give when concealed in a strange room. Mrs. Springer heard the cat yell, and af ter digging at Springer's shins with her toe nails until he was awake, she said, "Go down stairs, Mr. Spriuger, aud let that cat out of the house.' Springer, hat ed the job, but was forced to comply, and descending the stairs in his night shirt and bare foet, found himself in the dining-room here all about him was dark as pitch. The maid servant's beau had heard Spring er descending the stairs, and fearing that if he were found there it might make trou ble in the family, began to feel his way to ward to back door. In doing so, however, he tripped over the chair his sweetheart had been occupying, and fell headlong into a clothes horse full of garments that were being dried by the kitchen stove. The clothes horse struck the cat in its fall, and with another bowl of misery, that animal began to cavort around the room, scale the walls and climb the tables seeking f r au exit. "Great Moses ! what ails that cat 1"' said Springer, as he entered the kitchen, only to fall over tbe unfortuna te lover, who was trying to get untangled from the clothes horse and clothing. "Burglars ! murder !" yelled Springer, as he clutched the supposed thief beneath him, who, in his struggles to get away, upset the table full of breakfast dishes. The handmaid hearing tin muss, cam rushing up stairs o fast that the lamp was extinguished, and arrived in the kitchen just in time to get kicked in the pit of the stomach by one of the struggling men on tbe floor, and dropped tbe lamp and plate of doughnuts she had in hr bands, she, too, doubled up with a shriek of pain and fell to the floor in a hysterical lit. Mrs. Springer, who was only half-awake, Leaxd her husband yell murder, and bound ing out of bed came slidiDg down stairs in a sitting posture, and as she entered the kitchen, from whence came souuds of dead ly strife, curses and shrieks, the cat, who had partially caused the trouble, bolted through a window, and before Mrs. S. could collect her senses, the hired gitls beau had succeeded in getting out of Spricger'a grasp and followed the cat through the same aperture. The hand maid bearing her lover escape arose, pro cured a light, when Springer ceasd pound ing the armful of clothing he thought was the burglar, and a general council was held to discuss war matters. Result : Springer is called a fool and idiot, by Mrs. S. and the girl, for thinking there was a burglar in the bouse ; the broken lamp, spilled dough nuts and fractured window sash are charg ed up to the cat, whilst Mrs. S., who had not fully recovered from her trip down stairs, says the "next time she wants a cat put out of tbe house the will do it herself. A man don't know hew to do anything anyhow, nor never did." ChnrUs Leonard for the (Cleveland Voict. "WetiMaK Mighty On6artain." The Dawson (Ga.)

It being a uew business to him, he did not know there was a pro per officer to receive tax, and concluded all that was neccessary was to find a man with a white skin. Consequently he bailed the first while man be met with, "Say, boss, I want to pay my tax ; mus I gib it to you ?" n being told that it would bo received by the comprehending white gentleman, the negro gave him 925, and asked if that was 1 enough.

"Boss, gitu me sbowin' lor dat," said the negro. . 1 Again tbe wits of tbe white man were at work, and be soon hauded the negro a slip of paper with the inscription : "As Most lifted the serpent out of the wilderness, likewise have 1 lifted $25 ut of this negro's pocket." ! Not long after this the negro met with the tax-collector proper, who asked him i for his tax. , "Done paid it, boss, and here's de ceipt," j at th same time handing the piece of paper to the officer.

The Pentvian Syrup, a Protect ed Solution of the Protoxide of Iron, is to combined as to have the character of an aliment, as canity digested and assimilated with the blood as the simplest food. It increases the quantity of Xatnre's Own Vitalizing Agent, Iron in the blood, and cures "athousand ills," simply by Toning up, Invigorating arid I Utilizing the System. The en riched and vitalized blood per meates every part of the body, repairing damages and waste, searching out morbid secre tions, and leaving nothing for disease to feed upon. This is the secret of the won derful success of this remedy in curing Dyspepsia, Liver Com plaint, Dropsy, Chronic Diar rhoea, Dolls, Xcrvous Affections, Chills and Fevers, Humors, Loss of Constitutional Vigor, Diseases of the Kidneys and Bladder, Female Complaints, and all diseases originating in a bad state of the blood, or ac companied by debility or a low state of the system. Being free from Alcohol, in any form, its energizing effects are not fol lowed by corresponding reac tion, but are permanent, infu sing etrettgth, rigor, and nexa life into all parts of the system, and building up an Iron Con stitution. Thousands have been changed by Vie use of this remedy, from weak, sickly, suffering crea tures, to strong, healthy, and kappy men and women j and invalids cannot reasonably hes itate to give it a trial.

Member of the Royal College of Surgeons, Lon don, Graduated from one of the most eminent Colleges in the I'nited States, and the greater part of whose Ifc has been spent in the hospitals of London, Pris, Philadelphia aud elsewhere, has effected some of the most astonishing cures that were ever known ; many troubled withriug ing in the head and ears when asleep, great nervousness, being alarmed at sudden soands, bashfulness, with frequent blushing, attended sometimes with derangement of mind, were cured immediately. TAKE PARTICULAR NOTICE. Dr. J. addresses all those who have injurrd themselves by improper indulgence and solitary habits, which ruin both body and miud, unfitting them for either business, study, society or mar riage. These are some of the sad and melancholy effects produced by early habits of youth, viz: Weakness of the Back and Limbs, Pains in the Back aud Head, Dimness of Sight, Loss of Mus cular Power. Palpitation of the Heart, Dysiiepsy, Nervou Irritability, Derangement of Digestive ' Function, General" Debility, Symptoms of Con- cumplion, Aic. j Mentally The f'-arful effects on the mind i are much to be dreaded Loss of Memory, Ton- i fusion of Ideas, Depression of Spirits, Evil- Forebodings, Aversion to Society, Self-Distni-t, Love of Solitude, Timidity, V.c, are some of the evils produceJ. Tuoi'BANns of persons of all ages t an now Judge what is the cause of their declining health, losing their vigor, becoming, weak, pale, nervous and emaciated, having a singular appearance ubout the eyes, cough and symptom ot consunsf tlou. iOUNG MKN Who have injured th ruselves by a certain prac tice indulged in when alone, a habit frequently learned from evil companions, or at school, the effects of which are nightly felt, even when asleep, aud if not cured, renders marriage impos sible, and destroys both mind and body, should apply immediately. What a pity that a young man, the hope of hi country, the darling of his parents, should be snatchci from all prospects and enjoyments of life, by the consequence of deviating from the path of uaturc aud indulging iu a certain secret habit. Such persons must before contemplating MARRIAGE, reflect that a sound miud and body arc the must necessary requisites to promote connubial happi ness. Indeed without these, the journey through life becomes a weary pilgrimage ; the prospect hourly darkens to the view ; the miud becomes shadowed with despair and filled w ith the melan choly reflection, that the happiness of unotli-'r becomes blifhted with ourown. a CERTAIN DISEASE. When the misguided and imprudent votary of j pleasure finds that he has imbibed the seeds of j this painful disease, it too often happens that au j ill-timed sense of shame, or dread f discovery, j deters him from applying to those who, from education aud respectability, can alone befiicn.". ; him, delaying till the constitutional symptoms ol j this horrid disease make their appearance, such as ulcerated sore throat, diseased nose, noetural I pains in the head and limbs, 'dimness of sight, i deafness, nodes on the shin bones aud arms, blotches on the head, face and extremities, pro gressing with frightful rapidity, till at last the palate of the mouth or the bones of tbe nose fall in, and the victim of this awful disease becomes a horrid object of commiseration, till death puts a period to his dreadful suffering, by sending him to " that Undiscovered Country from whence no traveller returns." It is a melancholy fact that thousand DIE victims to this terrible disease, through falling into the bands of Ignoraut or unskillful PRE TENDERS, who, by the use of that deadly Poi son, Mercury, Ac, destroy the constitution, and incapable of curing, keep the unhappy sufferer month alter month taking their noxious or in jurious compounds, and instead of being restored to a renewal of Life Vigor and Ifcipplncs. iu des pair leave him with ruined Health to sigh over bis galling disappointment. To such, therefore, Dr. JonNhTOx pledge him self to preserve the most Inviolable Secrecy, arid from his extensive practice and observations in the great Hospitals of Euroje, Hud the first "n: this country, viz: Euglaud, France, Philadelphia and elsewhere, is enabled to offer t he most cer tain, speedy and effectual remedy in the world for all diseases of impnideuce.

I'p in the early morning, Jnst at tbe peep of day, Straining the milk in the dairy, Turning the cows away Sweeping the floor in the kitchen. Making the bed up stairs, Washing the breakfast dishes, Dusting the parlor chairs. Brushing tbe crumbs from the pantry. Hunting the eggs at tbe barn, Roasting the meat for dinner, Spiun'mg the stocking yam, Spreading the snow white linen Down on the bushes below. Ransacking every meadow Where ths red strawberries grow. Starching their cotton for Sunday, Churning the snowy cream, Raising the pails and strainer. Down in the running stream, Feeding the geese and poultry. Making the pudding and pies, Judding the little one's cradV, Driving away the flies. Grace in every motion, Music in every tone, Beauty of form and feature Thousands might covet to ojra Checks that rival roses, Teeth the whitest of pearls ; One of these country maidens is worth A score of yonr giddy girls. Agrifulinral. "A STiTCnix Time." Now is the time, says an Iowa farmer, to make all repairs that are needed about our farms and ma chinery, so that when spring, summer and harvest come we will be fully prepared to go ahead with our work without stopping to make repairs. I find that I have a plow beam to make, a shovel plow handle to fix, and an arm for one of the rakes on my self-raker ; a new bottom for my wagon box ; a new hay rigging, and a head piece for one of my harrows. This kind of work I do when the weather is too bad to work out of doors hauling np winter's and sum mer's wood just rough enough to work in the shop, llany farmers will find they have also some repairs to make and pro bably some new wood work needed some where about the farm machinery. Now is also a good time to look to your seed and clean it thoroughly. I pat in a side spout that goes with my fanning mill and take out just the Tery largest and best grain for seed and it pays well to clean seed tho roughly. If you will separate out the best of your wheat and then sow right by the side of it the small and inferior grain, and some just as it comes, you will see what a difference it will make. You can tell as soon as it comes up, and you will see the dividing line all tbe time until it is harvest ed, and will notice still more difference when you thresh. If you were not fortu nate enough to save your seed corn before the heavy frosts last fall, look around among your neighbors and get some good seed. It is better to pay five dollars a bush el than to accept poor seed as a gift. Good seed of all kinds is what all of us should take pains to have. Gbeaslxg Buggies and Wagons. The Canada Farmer says that greasing buggies and wagons is of more importance than some people imagine, and that many a wheel is ruined by oiling too plentifully. A well-made wheel will endure constant wear from ten to twenty years, if care is taken to use the right kind and proper amount of oil ; but if this matter is cot at tended to, the wheel will be used up in five or six years, or it may be sooner. Lard should never be used on a wagon, for it will penetrate the hub, aud work its way around the tendons of the spokes and spoi the wheel. Castor oil is a good materia for use on an iron axle ; just oil enough should be applied to a spindle to give it i light coating ; this is better than more, foi the surplus put on will wotk out at the ends, and be forced by the shoulders ant nut into the hub around the outside of tht boxes. To oil the axletree, first wipe lh spindles clean with cloth wet with turpen tine, if it won't wipe without it. On buggy or carriage, wipe and clean off th back and front ends of the bubs, and thci apply a very small cjlantity of castor oil or more especially prepared lubricato near the shoulder's point HOUSEHOLD. Valuable Recipes. Our lady friend will no doubt thank us for tbe valuable re cipes found below : Sandwiches for Partus. Chop fine som cold pressed ham, say about one-fourth i a pound, put it in a basin with a table spoonful of chopped pickles, and a tea spoonful of mustard, a little pepper or cr yenne ; put about six ounces of butter in basin, and stir quickly wilh a spoon till forms a kind of cream ; add the ham an seasoning, mix all well, have the sandwic bread cut in thin slices ; have already ct intermixed with fat, either cold roast bee veal, lamb, mutton, poultry, fowl, phes sant, grouse, partridge, etc., either of wbic lay evenly, and not too thick, on yot bread : season with a little salt and peppe and cover over with another piece of breai When your sandwich ia ready, cut in ai shape you like, but rather small and tasl ly and serve. You may keep them in cold place, if not wanted, as they will ke good under cover for twelve hours. To Cook Green Artichokes. Take fo' good-sized artichokes, strip them from t: outer leaves, cut off the stalks, and also little from the top of each. Beat each a tichoke separately until it opens, then 1 them between the leaves with the followij mixture : Mince finely a thick slice of u cooked ham, a little parsley, and two srui roots of green garlic ; mix them logethi and season with pepper and salt. Pia the artichokes in a stewpau, but not t closely together, and pour over each 1 t blespoouful of sweet oil. Stew them gent at the s:de of the fire for an hour, and ser in a vegetable dish. Friccassee of Onions. lVel tw o or th: dozen of the very small, round, while ions ; sprinkle them with salt, let them main for half an hour, then roll them np a cloth to dry them slightly, and dree with flour ; throw them into a stew pan which you have melted two ounces of frc butter, toss them over a gentle fire for f minutes, drain the fat from them, add pint of rich milk, minced lemon peel, wb pepper, salt and butter. Simmer for minutes and serve in the sauce. Carrot S'dad. Select very tender, ri colored carrots, and scrape and boil th in fast-boiling water till tender ; cut i very thin slices, put them into a glass lad bowl, and sprinkle with sifted loaf gar ; add the juice of a large fresh leffi and a wineglassful of olive oil. By wa; garnish, place round the margin of the an onion cut in exceedingly thin slices small bunches of any fresh, green Of leaves. Stuffing for a Turkey or Chicken. 1 some bread crumbs and turn on just ough hot water to soften them ; put piece of butter, not melted, the size hen's egg, add a spoonful of pulve sage, a teaspoonful of ground pepper, a teaspoonful of salt ; some of the I crumbs may need chopping, then mix roughly and stuff yonr turkey.
