five young women and ten old ones

Bridget, wko, having been a victim
to the disorder in her childhood, had
no fear of it. "Cook has gone off."
"Where has she gone V" asked the
"To the Jospital I" said Bridget.
"she did be getting the small-pox
and she went."
"It wasn't for one just out a saok
bed to use the language the master
did after that," Bridget said, in re
lating the incident.
But he was yet an invalid, and he
did not know his cook's name.
She hod never told it. to him. He
tried in vain to discover her
whereabQuts, but Bridget showed
some sagaoity.. "The wages were

So "the master" waited ; a month
passed ; another week ; then another;
then one evening some one rang the

"The master" went into the par.

temples, but gherloomplexion was not
spoiled, though she was thin and
worn again.
"I've come to see whether y )u
wanted me to cook for you again,''
she said.
"No," said he.
"Very well," said she.
"You had no business to go off
that way," said he.
"Who'd have taken care of me ?"
she asked.
"It was my duty to have Po n to

and single, meet regularly twice a
week, at Bloyer's slaugh ter-h ouso,

quaff the blood of steers that arc
killed there. Word is sent to the
women that an animal will be
slaughtered at a certain hour, and
when the time arrives they assemble
and stand in a row, eaolh holding a

of the animal is cut with a large
knife by the butcher, and as the li e.

An Enterprising Tramp in a Tight Place.
From the rural districts of New
York is reported the odd mishap of
a common. tramp. He went to
church; but possessed of the pot verse
genius of tramps, he did not go in
the ordinary way, when the .doo
were open and the holls ringigj end
the sun shining, anc'while the mutley
company of Sunday oltisens' gossiped
in the vestibule. Perhaps he wa+.
mpoest, and thought that in the con,

is recognized that the long and nar
row way is the right one, the tramp
wriggled forward with as much ener

that the flue wa in the for.a of the

a Christian in a flue in the form of

Sadden Drath of a Kentucky llasphem
A man named Louis Burke, who
lived at Burkesville, in hlenderson
County, a few days ago indulged in
very blasphemous language, because
his crops had been destroyed by high
water. He cursed Ood for having
his crops destroyed last year by heat
and drought, and for destroying then
this year by flood, and concluded his
blasphemy of the Creator with the
expression, "0 ad damn him !" His
tongue clove to the roof of his
mouth, and he died the next night,
never uttering another word.
