A Narrow Escape.
While MI s.rs. .J. D. Smith and Capt.
MeFall were ret urning home from the
harbecue at Chappells last Saturday a
very hird rain came on. Before
they reached Scotts creek. the stream
had swollen very high, too high to
cross, 1-ut they wanted to get home;
Capt. MeFall got out and walked
a log. Mr. Smith hadn't gone half
way through the creek when the
huigy turned over on top of him, anl
the water was so swift that the lior e
could not swim with the bug:y, :mnd
they were all three carried tlowin
streain. Mr. Smith imianaged to get
out sa'elv. and when lie reached the
bank lie thought of his E?O1 horse that
was still in the creek; the buggy
caught in a willow some way and the
horse broke loose, and managed to
get out too. Mr. Smith had no idea
that the water was as swift as it was
or lie would not have tried to cross.

boat swung round. ani we bnited
our hooks. cast th.!m into the w:
ter, and the sport connunenceed hil
mediately, if' not sooaer. Mr. Ilurd
had the pleasure of taking the first
fish out of the water, but in a man
ner (ifierent from thI:e (ceptab
mode, this fish being hung by the
helly; no matter though it was a
fish caught. The Capt. took ti.e
next. and the writer the third, but
though last we were not least in
.ze. as ours was th:' "hefti( st.
Agaiii, again. and a,ai1n. we baited
and calight. and caught antd baited.
We sat with hated breath as we
Iait ed for the fish. Such sport we
had never enjoyad befre". the unly
tible attendinii it was that of
ai ing the hooks. and to east them
in was to insure a fish. A strange
feature. and one whic."h called for
many a laugh. was the fact that Mr
IIuriu< caught two-thirds of his fish
in the same place he hooked the
first one-in the belly part. Not
until this had been repeated over
and over again was a solution of the
iystery had. One of his books
hung an inch or more under the
othe~r. and whenever the jerked at a
ite. lie would hook tie other fi.sh
which was standing aruunl waiting
his chance to bite at the savory
hait. It was a glorious day. and
we, that is the writer, caught the
largest fish everytime. The largest
one caught weighed two pounds
and the most of them were BlacIk
fish. This state of things continued
until two o'c'ock. when the -un
semeid to shine with intense l.eat,
and1( affected us so seriously that the
ih had to be once more raised and
.et as a shield to protect us fro:n
Sol's ardient raovs. F'or fifteen min
utes or more w~e thotught we wouhl
sueumb-for! unately the shade
atord.ed by the sail prevented an .y
thingi serious. At four o'clock we
were at home again, and counting

What a mistaken idea it is for
children to think that they know
more than their parents, and unfor

too become parents, and are blessed
with children who are wiser than
they are, the seles fall from their
eyes and they see that they
are as ignorant as their unfor
tunate iroenitors were-that is
in the eyes of their children. We
never see one of these smart young

handiwork, aul the children cried
in vain for the goodies which
used to be spread on their bread.
Nature in her prodigality has
smiled on us this summer, fruit of
all kinds is plentiful, and it will be
wise for the good wife to lay in a
large store out of the great abun
dance. Cans and jars are cheap.
and in the absence o: these gather
up all the wide-mouthed bottles to
be found and preserve all the fruit
you can. Do this and your winter

Do you mind that this is the sea
son when the sweet girl graduate
bedecks herself in gaudy array and
receiving her diploma throws aside
her girlhood and enters upon the
realities of life, endowed with all
the accomplishments of French,
music, embroidery, and the know
ledge of tattin? Does she know
how to make a loaf of light bread,
broil a steak or prepare a cup of
good coffee ? Alas. her education
stopped with Lattin and French.

Novels are written to gratify the
taste of the public, and it is per
fectly astounding how many of
these there are which should nevei
have seen the light of day. They
are pernicious and evil in their in
fluence and do vast harm. We be
lieve that it is the opinion of all
good men and women that it were
better such books had never been
written. Some of these books will
do for any one to read; the influ
ence they exert is good, we like to
read them. We advise against the
evil of letting the mind be taken
up~ entirely with the book which is
being readl, there is no question of
doubt as to the injuriousness of
such a course. A little light read
ing of an interesting book relieves
the mind after labor; it is soothing
and helpful. WVe have just had
the pleasure of reading one of Geo.
Macdonald's works-'Donal Grant'
It is a book which will benefit the
reader instead of doing him harm,
and will interest him from begin
ning to a chapter or two before the
end, which we confess is anything
but satisfying. We never could
see the taste or the necessity of
p)recip)itating a violent fever, or a
galloping consumption on a charm
ing and intelligent heroine,or break
ing the neck of a noble fellow, whom
you have followed with admiration
through two hundred pages of letter
press, and who you would infinitely
prefer seeing marry and transmit a
noble progeny. But every writer
does not see with our eyes-unfor
tunately, or many a beautiful girl, or
fine specimen of a man, would to
day be alive--in books-instead
of lying enveloped in the mnouly
earth. We find this fault with D)on
al Grant.
