In which, when cards are in certain condition., The player, appear to bare changed their posi tions, And one of them cries In a confident tone "I think I might venture to 50 It alane !" ' While watching the game 'tis the whim ol the bard's .. A moral to draw from the skirmish in cards. And to fancy he finds in the trivial strife Some excellent bints for the battle of life. Where, whether the priic be ribbon or throne, The winner is he who can "go It alone 1" When great Galileo proclaimed that the world In regular orbit was ceaselessly whirled, And got not a convert for all his pilns, . But only derision, and prisons, and chains. "It moves for all that," was his answering tone, . Fur he knew, like the e.irth, hoevuld "go it alone!" When, Kepler, with Intellect piercing alar, Discovered the laws of each planet anJ star, And doctors who ought to have lauded hi name, Derided bis learning and blackened his fame, "Learn, wait," he replied, "till the truth you shall own," For he felt in bis heart he cool J "go it alone !" Alas for the player who 1 lly depends. In the struggles of life, upon kindred and friends, Whatever the valuo of blessings like these. These can never atoue for the Inglorious ease, Nor comfort the uoward who finds with a groan . That his crutches have left him to "go it alone !" There Is something, no doubt. In the hand you hold; Health, family, culture, with beauty and gold ; The fortunate owucr may fairly regard. As each In lis way a most excellent card Yet the game may be lost, with all these for your own, Unless you have the courage to "go it alone T' In battle or business, whatever the game, In law or in love it Is ever the same ; , In the struggle for power, or scramble for pelf. Let this be your motto "Kely on yourself I" For whether the prize be a ribbon or throne, The victor Is be who can "go it alone !'' HOW I CAME TO GET MAKBIEU. An Old Pioneer's Story. "Your speaking of btMiig chased by wolves in Canada woods recalls a similar experience I once had in Ohio," said the old pioneer, as he shook with suppressed emotion, but whether of a sad or pleasant nature could not bo ascertained in the dim light of the fire place. "Let us hear the yarn," we sug gested, with a reportorial eye to an item for consideration in a dull sea son. "Oh, it ain't any yarn, I assure you," said the old man, as he chuckled aud grinned, until a glacial move ment of tobacco juice started from each corner of his mouth and pushed its way slowly down the wrinkles that led to his stubble-covered chin below. "Shut the dor there so that mother can't hear what is going on, and I will tell you how I came to get married." We omplied with his request, and after storing away a fresh deposit of the weed "that cheers but don t ine briate," he drew his chair close to us anflcommenced : "It was in the year 1850 that I came to Cleveland, and became em ployed in a hardware store on Supe rior street 1 had spent all my pre vious life on a farm, and become tired of tramping around -over the pas tures, foddering sheep and cattle in winter, and working still harder in the summer. I won't say anything about the difficulties 1 experienced in getting employment upon my arrival in this city, nor how I tried every place in the town before I could find a boarding-place that suited me, until I became acquainted with a widow lady who kept a few boarders on what is now known as Euclid Avenue. "My landlady was accomplished, and had evidently seen better days, but the death of her husbaud left her in reduced circumstances. She had two daughters, both lively, intelligent, and possessed of graces that only come froin association with the better class of society. They were of ex tremely gay disposition, and I had not been ot the house a month before I was hopelessly in love with Fanny, the eldest, and though at times her manner toward me was tender and encouraging, she carefully avoided giving me an opportunity to be alone with her long enough to declare my passion. "The winter had nearly passed without finding me any farther ad vanced in my suit, until one night in February, after a heavy fall of snow, I asked Fanny -to take a sleigh-ride with mc, to which she consented, and after tea I procured as high stepping a pair of horses as could be found in the city, drove up to the house of my affinity, and in a few minutes we were whirling away out on the Cleve land and Medina turnpike. I had taken that road partly because it led towards" my old home, and also owing to its being less travelled at night than the other thoroughfares leading from the city, and we were not likely to be interrupted in onr ride or conversation. The night was just cool enough to make it necessary to put my crm around my companion, the horses were frif-ky, the moon shone with that peculiar light which is preferred by lovers to all others, unless it be that of a 'parlor lamp turned down so low that as un illu minator it is nearly useless. "Through Brooklyn township we whirled out into the country, where the ligblts from the fann-housess be came more scattered, and the baying of the watch-dog was the only sound heard. - Fanny, who had previously sang, laughed and chatted merrily on our ride, now became quiet As we came to a rise in the road that dis closed a level strip two or three miles in length before us I said to myself, 'Before. we have traveled the road now in view, I will settle my fate, and go home a happier or more misr erable man. ; "llardly had I come to this con clusion before I heard a peculiar rush ing sound behind us. and looking aiound could sec a nock of sheep com ing at full speed toward us, and im mediately behind them were two or three dog3, which accounted for the fright of the sheep, which would doubtless run for miles before stop ping, and cause their owner much trouble in hunting them up. But a bright thought came to me. Fannie was a city girl, aud had never seen a sheep save in the shape of cutlets or roast at ber mother's table. - I would indulge in a strategy of the kind which is considered fair in love or war. Lowering my voice to the stage Jib benainosy where he speaks of the death of his parents, wife and friends, j I said, 'Fanny, my girl, are you brave ! can you bear terrible news ?' 'Why I SOMERSET, PA., WEDNESDAY, JANUA11Y 15. 1873. Uenry, what is the. . matter what makes you look so paler 'Assuming a more tragic 'Vtoice,' I replied, 'Bo firm, dearest -fcly, on me; we are followed by wblvep. , Look behind you and you can see the monsters, who are already thirsting for . our blood.' ; . "She gave a hurried glance back ward, heard the rushing sound . of many feet, tno. deep breathing, which when heard in the forests of the north causes the wildest dismay; then draw ing nearer to Die, said, .'I did not know that there were any wolves so near the city, lienry.' Neither did I think there wens any, I replied, but it seems we were mistaken, for these behind us are thfc gray species, and most dangerous' of any to meet. Driven, by hunger,'; they have ap proached the settlement and unless our horses can goto the Stone Tavern in Parma before we are overtaken, we are-lost' . "At this juncture the ofd curly horned leader, tired and put of wind from the long run, gave vent to a pro longed bleat which was fearful en ough to scare a girl less timid than Fanny. I sawed on the torses' bit, flourished my whip frantically around them until they were excited and ap parently uomg their best to escape the fate behind them, Vbut ' I ' was secretly holding them back, to allow the wolves (!) to get closer. On came the bloody horde, panting for breath, nearer and nearer, until I began to throw out robes and blankets. 'These will keep them chewing few minutes, I said, aud we may escape. But the sheep had no appetite for the robes, and were close behind us. "I arose in the sleigh, gave the reins to Fanny, Jsaying. , 'Drive for your life I will sacrifice myself for you,' and made a movement as if to jump out or tb' aleigh. .'jSever I never:' she screamenl 'we will die together,' and she pnllcd me down lie side ber. to await- her fate. While thus employed, I succeeded - in ob taining a hastly avowal of Fanny, at the same time I 'as holding back the horses to let tSfn pursuers go by. They came; the, fiensters "separated and passed us on each side, while I held my hat over her face,, that she might not see the dreadful deception 1 bad plaveu upon her. r , . , "Sho fainted, the moaieut we were overtaken by the wol res", and. with out trying torevive,her,' I turned the horses homeward and only stopped to pii k up' the rob3 which had been thrown out, to check the ferocious an imals. After ' driving a mile or two, my now affianced wife revived suffi cientlv to hear hdw we were saved by a party of sleigh-riders who met us just as we were surrounded. Though nervous and weak from the excite ment, she recovered hor buoyancy of spirits before wo arrived .home, and had promised to keep our . adventure a secret, as I informed her the 'owner of the horses would charge me a fear ful price if he knew to what. tests his steeds had been pot' , ; And that, is my adventure with wolves, and how, I came to marrr.'' ' " ' - - 1 But did your wife never find out the deception you practiced ?" we asked the old settler, as he laughed again while thinking of his boy.sh pranks. "Not until eight years ago," be re plica, ' 'when l tola her ot it one evening when she wag ironing." "What did she say ?" "Not much not very much" an swered our old romancer, but, re moving his hat, he showed us a trian gular space upon his head, such as might have been made by a hot smoothing iron and with not a hair upon its surface, uethoucht fanny was revenged. Onr Sliver Crop. The production of silver from the mines of Utah for the year 1871 is roughly estimated at $5,000,000, and a writer'in the Omaha Herald predicts that the total yield for 1872 wih reach double that amont. It is dim cult however, to arrive at an accu rate estimate of the production in this Territory, as the shipments arc made, some of them in refined silver bull ion, others in base bullion of varying value, and others still in ores of wide ly different degrees of fineness It is believed, though, that the Little Cot tonwood district alone has yielded more than $6,000,000 the present year. There are seven mines there, besides the Emma, yielding more than $500,000 each, some reaching as high as $1,400,000. Prof. Clayton, of Nevada, a com petent authority, estimates that the silver product of that ; State for 1872 will bo from 30 to 33 per cent great er than last year, lie believes that Comstock lode will this year yield not less than $1 (1,000,000. This includes, of course, all the bullion from that lode, a proportion, greater or less, be ing gold. The Raymond and Ely mine in the 1 loclie district or Nevada is the most productive mne known, except the Crown Point mine on the Comstock lode. Its yield this year is expected : to . exceed $4,000,000. This mine was stocked and sold in Sau Eraiicisco for $3,000,000, and has paid seven per cent, per month on its stock ever since the day of its sale. Mr. Raymond, one of its discoverers, holds one million dollars in its stock. on which he receives $70,000 month ly. . His dividends for the last twelve months have amounted to $340,000 in gold. ,.,, , ,'. Patience.- In some sad lives there comes a moment when the shadow of death passes over the soul, and does not touch the body. After that we walk along our appointed path in th world, and laugh and talk, and buy aud sell, and marry and arc given in marriage, may be, and none of our friends, who hold our hands and wish us God speed on our , way, imagine, when they look into our eyes, that we aro dead, that there is no more light in the morning dew, thatiu our hearts is neither hope nor fear.regret, remembrance, nor delight; only so much of the red heart throb as keeps up the show of life for other needs than our own only a cold, dull , pa tience in place of a living eoul. , Six Russian Mcnnonites, represen tatives of forty thousand persons of the same faith, have been looking about Lehigh county, seeking an eli gible place for the whole body to settle in. ' TUE UTORW 1ST THE RADIOES. S A TbrlUIng- BketeU. " All night long the wind shrieked and whistled through tho tents; the men, tired out with their exertions, did not wake. Bnt the women did, and lay and trembled David's wife awoke. "David I" she whispered, but he did not hear her.. "What's the matter, mother?" murmured her daughter. "Nothing, child, nothing. Its only the wind. ; llush 1 we musn't wake futher. Go to sleep darling." Tho sun rose late the next morning, and a dim blood veil was in the sky, which made some of them think that it was night still. The miners found the snow round their huts to be three feet deep. They looked anxious at this. "We can master the snow," they whispered to one another, "but the snow-drift will mast er U3." Even j as they spoke, the wind, which had lulled, began to moan again, and be fore they had been working there an hour shoveling away the snow, the wind-storm,, bringing the snow with it from the heights over which it rushed, blinded them, and drove them into their huts for f shelter. They could not hold their feet. "Let us hope it'll not last long," they said ; and they took advantage of every lull to work against their enemy, not like men but like heroes. ; "What makes you so downcast, Saul?" asked David ; he had not begun to lose heart. Saul looked in silence at David's wife and daughter ; they were at the far end of the hut "You are not frightened, Saul, surely ?" said David. "Not for myself, David," whispered Saul. "But tell me. What kind -of love do bear for your wife and child?" David's look was sufficient answer. "I have a perfect love for a woman also, David. If she were here, as your wife is with you, I could bear it, and so could she. David,.: we arc beset by a terrible danger. Listen' to the wind. I am afraid we may never get out of this." David's lips quivered, hut ho shook away the fear. "We mustn't lose heart, Saul, and we must keep this danger before us, and we must do it like men!" "Trust me, David," said Saul ; "my heart beats to the pulse of a willing hand ;" aud said no more.: The wind storm continued all the day with such violence that it was impossible for the men to work. As the day advanced the blood-veil In the sky died away, and when the night came the moon's light shone clear and cruel, bright and pitiless. Worn out with hard toil and anxiety, Saul Fielding lay down that night and tried to sleep. '.'I must have strength for to-morrow," he thought The fierce wind had grown faint, and it moaned now among the hills like a weak child., Saul smiled gladly, and accepted it as a good omen. , lie hug ged his gold closo, and vowed that be would not risk another season of such danger. "If I do not get an ounce more," he thought, "I will be content What I have will be sufficient.for the home and fort Jane. Jane, dear Jane I", Her name always came to him like a prayer, "and with "Jane" on his lips, and "Jane" in his thoughts, he fell asleep and dreamed of her. "My God I" he heard David's wife cry. and at that moment he awoke, and rising swiftly to his feet, saw a candle alight in his tent, and David's wife standing in her night dress on his side of it Her face was white with terror. "My God V she cried again, "we are lost." The storm that had arisen in his dream was no fancy. "Go into your room," said Saul hurriedly. "I will be dressed in a minute." In less than that space of time he was up and dressed, and then David tore the green baize aside. "Saul," he said, "this is terrible." And stepping to Saul's side whispered, "if this continues long our grave is here." Saul went to the door of the tent and tiied to open it ; he colud not. The wind had brought with it thousands and thous ands of tons of snow, from the .heights, and they were walled up. Saul felt all round the sides of the tent. The snow was man-high. Only the frail drill of which the tent was made kept it from falling in and burying them. In an instant Saul comprehended their dread-peril. "The tree !" he cried, as if an inspi ration had fallen upon him ;"the tree." Just on side tho tent, between it and the tent next to it, stood a great pine tree, the only tree among the tents. Many a time had it been suggested to tut down, this tree for firewood, but David had prevented it. "Wait," be had said, "until we vant it ; when firewood runs short, and we can't get it elsewhere, it will be time enough." So the tree had been saved from the axe, and stood there like a giant, de fying the storm. Saul piled up the rough seats and the table which com prised the furniture of the tent, and, climbing to the top of them, cut a great hole in the roof of the tent It was daylight above, and the snow was falling fast Saul saw the noble tree standing fast and firm in the midst of the storm. With a desper ate leap he caught a branch, and rais ed himself above the tent And when he looked upon the awful scene, upon the cruel white snow in which the tents all around him were imbed ded, and nearly buried, his heart throbbed despairingly. But this was uo time for despair. It was the time for action. When he had secured his position in the tree, he stooped over the tent "David 1" he cried. Da vid's voice answered bim. "This is our only chance," he said louder ; he spoke slowly and distinctly, so that those within the tent might hear bim. "Here we may be able to- find safety until the storm abates and the snow subsides. Listen to me, and do ex actly as I say. Get some provisions together and some water, and the little brandy that is left Make them up in a bundle. Tie rope and cord round it, and let mc have it quickly t Before he finished speaking, David's wife was busy attending to his in structions. "Answer me, : Saul," cried David. "What do you see of our mates ?" Saul groaned. ."Do not ask me, David ! Let us thank God that this tree was left standing." David climbed on to the tablo in a few minutes, with the bundle of pro visions in his hands. He was lifting it for Saul to take hold of when the pile upon which he was standing gave. way, and be feu heavily to the ground. At this moment n, movement in the tent nearest to the tree arrested Saul's attention. One of the men inside had thought also of the tree, and had adopted Saul's expedient of cutting through the. roof of the tent. He saw Saul, but he was too far away to reach the tree. "Give mc a hand, mate ! (Jive nie a hand, for God's sake." 'One moment." replied Saul, deeply anxious for the fate of David, for he heard the generous-hearted digger groan, and heard David's wife sobbing. "Keep your hold and stand firm for a little while. sou are sale there for a time. There is something here in my own tent I must see to at once." ' Then he called, 'David ! David! Are youurt?" The voice of David's wife answered hint with sobs and cries, "He can't move, Saul 1 He can't move ! O, my poor, dear David I He has broken his leg, he says, end his back is hurt What shall I do? O, what shall I do?"' But although she asked this question, she true wife and woman as she was was attending to the sufferer, not thinking of herself. "God pity us !' groaned Saul, and raised his hand to the storm. "Pity us ! pity us!" he cried. But the pitiless snow fell, and the soft flakes danced in the air. Then Saul cried, "David's wife ! The child ! the child," "Let nie be, wife," said David ; "I am easier now. Pile up trr.se seats again ; make them firm. Dou't hurry. I can wait. I am In no pain. Lift our little daugh ter to Saul, and the provisions after ward." ' She obeyed him ; she piled the seats one above another. Then bronght the child to David. He took her in his arms and kissed her again and again. "My pet ! my darling," he moaned. "Kiss father, little one." And the rough man pressed this link of love to his heart, and kissed her face, her hands, her neck, her lips. "Now, wife," he said, and resigned their child to her. David's wife stood silent for a few moments with the child in her arms, and murmured a prayer over her, and blessed her ; and then, keeping down her awful grief bravely, like a brave woman, cjiined to the height and raised her arms to Saul with the child in them. Only her bare arms could be seen above the tent's roof. "Come, little one," said Saul, and, stooping down at the risk of. his life, clutched the child from the mother's arms, and heard the mother's heart-broken sebs. "She is safe, dear woman." Other heads rose from other tents and turned des pairingly about But no help for them was near. . They were in their grave. David's wife raised the provisions to Saul and went down to her husband. "Wife," said David, "leave me, and see if you can reach Saul. It w ill be difficult, but yt'n may be able to manage it'.' She looked at bim ten derly. "My place is here, David," she said : "I shall stay with you and trust to God. , Our child is safe, in the care of a good man." , He tried to persuade her, but sho shook her bead sweetly' and sadly, and simply said: "I know my duty." He could say "no more, for the next moment he swooned, his pain was so great Then bis wife knelt by him, and raised his head upon her lap. Meanwhile, the man in the next tent who had called to Saul to give him a hand, had not been idle. He found a plank, and was raising it to the roof, with pur pose of resting it upon a branch of the tree. As with more than a man s strength he lifted the plank forward, Saul heard a thud beneath him, and looking down saw that the walls of the tent in which David and his wife were had given way, and that the snow was toppling over. He turned his head ; he was powerless to help them. The tears ran down his face and beard, and he waited, awestruck by the terror of the time. He thought he heard the voice of David's wife cry, "Good bye, my child ! God pre serve you I" In a choking voice he said solemnly to David's lettle daugh ter, "Say God bless you, mother and father!" The child repeated the words in a whisper, and nestled closer to Saul, and said, "I'm so cold 1 Where is mother and father ? Why don't they come up ?" Saul, with a shiver, looked down. Nothing of David or of David's wife did he see. Tho tent was not in sight The snow had covered it And still it fell, and still it drifted. The digger who oc cupied the next tent had fixed his plank ; not a moment was to be lost ; his tent was cracking. j Creeping along the plank, with ner vous strength of desperation, cling ing to it like a cat, he reached the tree and was saved for a time. As he reached it the plank slipped into the snow. And still it fell, and rose high er. Men signaled to each other from tent to tcfit, and bade God bless each other, for they felt, unless the snow fall should instantly cease, there was no hope for them. But still it fell ; fell softly into the hoIe3 in the canvass roofs and sides, into the chambers be low; crept up to them iuch by inch; wrapt yellow gold and mortal flesh in soft shrouds oTSvhitc, and hid the adventurers from the light of day. Only three remained. Saul and Da vid's little daughter in the uppermost branches of the tree; the digger from the nearest tent clinging to a lower branch. Hoy U nt Imperial Joke. Jesting with kings, particularly un invited why, it was as if a swimmer however experienced, should venture within the smooth but death-bearing current of Niagara, which inevitably carries all within its power over the Falls. People have played little teas ing jokes with elephants, and, when the jokers have forgotten all about it, the gravely majestic beast has put his foot upon the offender and crushed the honor out of bim forever. It has been just so with malice-bearing mon archs, and with courtiers who thought they might joke with them. The in carnation of all such monarchs exist ed in the person of an African king named Cbaka. He was given to joking at others, and woe betide them if they did not burst with ecstacy at the joke ;: but if a "fellow of in finite humor" happened to cap the royal joke with a better, Chaka broke into hilarity, which only ended by ex claiming, "Cutoff that wretch's head; he has made me laugh." The Caesars must have been almost as dreadfully dangerous men to joke with aa Chaka. The great Julius, iudecd, after he became great, had no assasaKBtasauxcai NO. 31. leisure for jesting, but was the object of some popular jokes which be took with indifference. The guests of Au gustus were afraid to "crake a joke" in his presence. 'They would ,whis pcr one to a neighbor, and then turn pale if the Emperor invited them to "speak up." The imperial table was as grand and dull as that of the cop per Augustus, Louis the Fourteenth, and the Emperor had recourse, to merryandrews, just as the , Grand Monarqne bad to harlequins. But the harlequins, of those days were gentlemen a.1tl scholars. The grini Tiberius, on the other hand,' was re markably facetious Hi'b delight was to puzzle his learned guests with uu- Tit- - . - ' i i.irl . aiisweruoio questions, sucu as uut was the name of the song k the Syrens sang?" and the like. Fancy half a dozen members of the Society of Antiquaries dining with her maj esty and being gravely asked who built the marble halls the Bohemian dreamt she dwelt in ? or what was the Christian name of the "Minstrel boy ?" and at what period "Auldlang syne had been young?", Neverthe less, Tiberius was a nicer man to deal with than Caligula, all of whose jests were brutally cruel, in words, and oftener in deeds. V hat a seri ous joke was that when, having noth ing on but the linen apron of a victim slayer, he raised the mallet, and in stead of slaying the Ijeast, knocked out the brains ot the sacrificing priest! Claudius was too huge a feeder to have .an appetite for wit; but he would have eaten the whole beast that his predecessor should have kill ed. Yet Claudius, half beast himself, had a good deal of the scholar in him, as Nero had, who loved science, ad mired art, was mildly witty, and there with as savage as an insane byena. We must except the occasion of his visiting the theatre, when he sat in an upper seat, and found delight in flinging nuts down upon the bald head of the praUor below. That official was as proud of the attention as if every nut had been an especial honor. Joyless Galba had none of the Neron- ic fun in him. But though not mirth ful himself, Galba could smile when he heard the popular slang name, in allusion to bis flat nose, "Sirnius." His successor, Otho, was just such a wit as a man might be expected to be who washed his face in asses' milk. If witty men went away from him feeling heavy, it was the result of ex changing ideas with their imperial master. He had his wit at second hand, as Yitcllius had w ho got ' his jokes from a stage-player and chario teer. Perhaps V cspasian was a great er joker than anv of them, but bis jokes were often broad and scurrilous. Titus was rather gracious than given to jesting, though he enjoyed one sor-' ry joke, in promising to every suitor j that his request should be granted. They went away radiant. "Every one," he said, "ought to depart joyful ly from the presence of his prince ;' and then, "the delight of mankind" thought no more of his promise. The chief recreation of the gloomy Domi tian was in playing dice ; but he al ways won. Every; antagonist knew what Ihejofre would cost him if he beat the Emperor. " ' ' -?' . Altogether, those twelve Ca?sars were men compounded of the most opposite qualities, with a small modi cum of what is called wit among the whole of them. Out of all those who followed, one alone, Hadrian, made a standing and sterling joke a joke which has descended to ns and ad ded a slang phrase to our vulgar tongue. To "scrape acquaintance" comes to u? from Hadrian. He was at the public baths one day when he saw one of his veteran soldiers scrap ing his body with a tile. TKat was such poor luxury that Hadrian order ed that his old comrade should be supplied with more suitable cleansing materials, and also with money. On a subsequent occasion, when the em peror again went to the bath, the spectacle before him was quite amus ing. A score of old soldiers who had fought under Hadrian were standing in the water, and each was currying himself with a tile and wincing at the self-inflicted rubbing. The em peror perfectly understood what he saw and what was the purpose of the sight. "Ha! ha!" he exclaimed, "you had better scrape one another, my good fellows." He added, "You certainly shall not serape acquaintance with me." lemple Bar. Hiave sua leo Jlonsie. No well-appointed farm should be destitute of its ice-house, any more than of its horse-barn or wood-house. No elaborate or costly building is needed for this use ; no large expense need be incurred in making the en closure, or filling t with ice. In a pinch the farmer can do all the work himself, and need only buy the lum ber, nails, and a few hinges. of the matter of cost it is safe to say that any farmer, even "if he owes a good deal," or his "taxes are hard to pay," can compass the cost of an ice-house. He had better sell his best cow than do without the ice, for by the aid of the latter the profits of his dairy will be largely increased in hot weather. In the house the uses of the ice are so various, that once introduced it becomes a necessity. Some hints regarding construction. though old, may be of use to those wishing to build. First, good drain age must be secured without giving the air access to the ice through the drain. If the soil is porous, or grav elly, no artificial drainage is required. It is not essential that the Ice be stor ed underground, as it keeps quite as well above the surface. Double walls are best and safest. The ice should be compactly packed and enclosed with packed sawdust, or tanbark, on all sides and on the top, to the depth of at least twelve inches. This pack ing Is tho great preservative of the ice. Ventilation must be given from the top of the ice With these principles in view it is easy for a novice to build an ice-houe. It is well to bear in mind that the larger the body of ice stored the better it will keep. No farm ice-house should be less thn twelve feet square on the inside, and eight feet high. As it is eonsid erable work to haul ice from a distance, it is wise to procure it on or near the farm, by throwing a dam across a brook, or leading the water of a spring into a basin. A few square rods of ice will suffice to fill an ordinary house. A Chests Flab-FoB. A Missouri correspondent of the Rural World givc3 the following di rection for preparing a fish-pond a.n-1 tli variety offish to put in it: "As a point to begin, and place within the reach of every farmer in the State thus much desired table lux ury, I will suggest a plan, costing nothing and bat very little labor : Constrnct a stork-pond of sufficientize to enjmre water during the summer season and will not likely freeze to the bottom in winter. Then catch with the seine a fish known in the streams of Kentucky as the new light, and called iu Missouri the calico perch; eonveythem without injury to the pond, and you will always be certain of an abundance of excellent fish. I have given the names above as those by which I have heard them called, not being posted in fishology. They arc a broad, flat fish, with mot tled silver sides,.-white belly, sucker mouth, with, Jess of a delicate web like structure.. They run in the schools; bite best at the live minnow, bat will take the common fishing worm very well ;' grow to the weight of from ite 2 pounds. They re quire no feeding will live anywhere the sunfish can. I find them in ev ery stream that I am familiar with riorth""ofthe Misso uri river, and I have no doubt they abound south of the same." , We take the foregoing to be a va riety of the sunfish, and though it is a good fish, and relished as one of our best river and creek fishes, it is much inferior in flavor to some oth ers, the- white, perch for instance. TIipv irp. iiiflfpd tn lw found almost everywhere, and'the varieties o? them are almost innumerable. They seem . to multipiy rapidly in almost any wa ters, ponds cr streams. Some of -them are nearly round, others are t more elongated, and they weigh from aa ounce in weight np to hundreds of pounds. The sea sunfish is some- , times bet ween" five and six feet long, and are often harpooned by sailors fur food, and are excellent eating. In ' pure fresh water they never grow larjfe, not over a quarter of a pound ; in tidewater they grow larger, and sometimes weigh as much as a pound; but in salt water, up bays, rivers and ' creeks, they grow to two or three times as large. ! Of coarse no one would think of having a fish-pond without a fair sup ply of water. In each pond, too. there should be a portion agitated by the stream, or the streams, of good force, or the fish will be very insipid. It is an erroneous idea that anybody, having a small spring can have fish by darning it up. It is true they will live and multiply, but the quali- , ty, among those who make this a ' point in hsb-eating, will be very or dinary. The Early Bneenneera. Of the piratical cruises of the ear ly buccaneers, and of the fate of the Spanish galloons which fell in their way, history contains no record. The first raid commemorated in their chroiflcles is the attack on the town of San Francisco, Campeachy, by Lewis Scott an Englishman. It suc ceeded. Scott and his companions returned laden with booty, and the rumor of the exploit spread through all the islands which were not held by Spaniards. Soon afterwards a Dutchman, named Davis, after an un successful cruise, proposed to his crew to undertake an expedition against the town of Granada, Nicaragua. It was known to be wealthy and popu lous, and the sailors part French, , part English, and part Dutch jumped at the proposal. Davis rowed nearly a hundred miles up the river, then left his ships, and, with eighty deter mined ! men, advanced by night marches on the-city. The plan of operations was . characteristic. A sentinel challenging them as they ap proached, they teplied that they were fishermen returning home, and two of them advanced toward bim, apparent ly in order to afford further explana- , tions. ... He met them half way, when they "prudently and quietly" passed their swords through his body. They . had secured a guide, who led them, one by one, to the houses of the rich est inhabitants. Each knocked at a door and begged to see the master of the house. Admitted, he seized the Spaniard by the throat and bade him surrender all his money and jewels. A small party had been detailed to look after the churches. They called on the sacristans, apologized for the lateness of their visit, and begged the loan of the keys of the churches. An hour or two sufficed to hammer the sacramental cups into lumps of metal, to gouge the small images of their jeweled eyes, and to pack all the altar plate. The work was complete, in fact, by the time some one of the Spaniards gave the alarm by ringing a bell. The buccaneers instantly hurried to the appointed rendezvous ; then forming in square, they retreat ed slowly to their boats, defying all attempts of .he Spaniards to intercept them. Not content with their plun der, they secured the persons of sev eral leading citizens, whom they af terward released for a ransom of five hundred tows. Davis arrived safely at Jamaica with his booty, and an equitable division was made, the poorest sailor receiving over five hun dred crowns as his share of the week's profi t. Rensiblo Women.
