THE LAWYER AND THE CATS.
Two Arkansas lawyers were domesticated
m the rude hotel of a country town. The
hotel was crowed, and the room allotted to ourd
two heroes was also occupied by six or eight
others.
Shakedown beds, enough to accommodate
the guests, were disposed about the room,
against the four walls, leaving an open space
iu the centre of the apartment.
Judge Clark lay with his head to the north,
on one side, and Judge Thomas lay with his
head to the south, on the other side of the
room. So far as that room was concerned, it
might be said that their heads represented the
north and south poles, respectively.
All the other beds in the room were occupied.
The central part of the room was deemed
neutral ground, in which the occupants of
the different beds had equal rights. Here, in
picturesque confusion, lay the boots, hats,
coats and breeches of the sleepers. There
were no windows, though ti e door was open,
there being no moon, the night was very dark
in that room.
The wily lawyers, who ht.d been opposing
counsel in a case tried in the town court that
x day, and had opposed each other with the
contumacy of wild pigs, were now the very
incarnations of meekness, fcr when the hungry
swarm of mosquitoes settled down and bit
them on the cheek, they slowyly turned the
other to be bitten also.
' ''But, hush! hark!"
A deep sound strikes the ear, like a rising
knell!
/^Vle-ow-ow!"
tl" Judge Clark and Thomas were wide awake,
and sitting bolt upright in a a instant.
Again the startling cry!
"Ye-ow, ye-ow!"
. "There's a d?d cat !" whispered Clark.
"Scat, you 1" hissed Thomas.
Cat paid no attention to these deraonstra
tions, but gave vent to another yowl.
"Oh, Lord!" cried Clark, "I can't stand
this! Where is she, Thomas?"
"On vour side of the room, somewhere,"
. / replied Thomas.
"No, she's on your side," said Clark.
"YeKiw-ow-ow!"
"There, I told you she was on your side,"
they both exclaimed in a breath.
And still the yowl went on.
The idea now entered the heads of both the
lawyers, that by the exercise of certain stratr
egy they might be enabled to execute a certain
flank movement on the cat, and totally
demoralize him. Practically, each determined
to file "a motion to squash" the cat's attachment
for that room.
Each kept his plan to himself, and, in the
dark, unable to see each other, prepared for
action.
Strange as it may appear, it is nevertheless
true, that the same plan suggested itself to
both. In words, this plan would be about as
follows:
"The yowler is evidently looking and calling
for another cat, with whom he has made
an appointment, l will imitate a cat, ana
this cat will think t'other cat's around. This
cat ivill come toward me, and when he shall
have arrived within reach, I'll blaze away
with anything I can get hold of, and knock
the mewsic out of him.
So each of the portly judges, noiselessly as
cream comes to the surface of the milk, hoisted
himself on his hands and knees, and, hippopotamus
fashion, advanced to the neutral
ground occupying the central portion of the
room.
"Arrived there, Judge Clark selected a
boot-jack, and Judge Thomas a heavy cowhide
boot from the heapj and settled themselves
down to the work.
Clark tightened his grip on the boot-jack,
and, throwing up his head, gave vent to a
prolonged and unearthly "ye-ow-ow!" that
would have reflectetTcretimrpoiK, ten of the
largest kind of cats. ' 1
- ' ami!" thought ThomasTwlro was not sax"
feet away, "he's immediately close around;
now I'll inveigle him!" and he gave the regular
dark call of a feminine cat.
Each of the judges now advanced a little
closer, and Clark produced a questioning
"Ow! ow!"
Thomas answered by a re-assuring "Pur-ow!
pur-ow!" and they advanced a little more.
They were now within easy reach, and each
imagining the cat had but a moment to live,
whaled away, the one his boot, the other with
his boot-jack.
The boot took Clark square in the mouth,
demolishing his teeth, and the boot-jack came
down on Thomas's bald head, just as he was
in the midst of a triumphant "Ye-ow."
When lights were brought, the cat had disappeared,
but the catastrophe was in opposite
corners of the room, with heels in the air,
swearing blue streaks.
A Hopeful Convert.?During a late revival
in Kansas, a notorious old sinner, Jim
K was hopefully converted, and got up
in a class meeting to give his experience. He
commenced : notto voce, and in a measured
tone: "I dreamed?a dream. I dreamed?
that I died?and went to hell." A brother
here rose in the body of the house and remarked
: "will the brother please speak a little
louder ? We can't hear hira in this quarter."
Jim repeated, alto voce: "I dreamed that
I died," etc.; when another rose in another
quarter of the house rfhd renewed the request.
Jim resumed, altmimo: "I dreamed that I
died," etc. Hereupon a "cullud pusson" in
the gallery rose and cried out: "Will de brudder
s])eak a little louder. We can't hear him
in de gallery." Jim resumed, voci-ferously:
"1 dreamed?that I died?and?went to hell!
There, can you hear that you d?d nigger ?"
It may be added that the faith of the audience
in Jim's conversion was slightly shaken
bv this little episode.
?
Catching a Drove of Turkeys.?Friend
"Jerry" is a good-natured, civil fellow, who
attends to his business and provides well for
his family, but has one little failing, in this,
that when he goes to his home in the suburbs
at night, he is usually more or less under the
influence of contraband fluids. One night, a
little alter dark, he started for home with a
nice tuvkey,^afelv done up in strong wrap-,
ping paper,.under his arm. "Jerry" found
the road Aom the station to his cottage, some
half mile distant, uncommonly rough that
night. He several times stumbled and fell
over all sorts of obstructions in the path. Each
time he fell he dropped his turkey, but con
trived to pick it up again. On entering hb i
house, he steadied himself as well as he was ,
able, and said to his wife, "Here, wife, I've
got 'h'ven turkeys for you." "Eleven turkeys,
Jerry! What do you mean ? There's only
one." "There, must be 'leven turkeys, wife,
l'or i fell down 'leven times, and every time I
found a turkey. There must be 'leven turkeys."
A Practical Application of the Scriptures.?Kicholas
Wain, though a regular
Quaker preacher, was a great wag, and many
are the good things said by him which are still
current in certain Philadelphia circles. He
was once traveling on horseback in the interior
of Pennsylvania in company with two
Methodist preachers. They dbcussed the
points of difference in their respective sects,
until they art-ived at the inn where they were
to put up for the night. At supper Wain was
skated between the two Methodbts, and before
them was placed a plate containing two trout.
Each of the circuit riders placed hb fork in a .
fish and transferred it to hb plate, after which
each shut hb eyes and said an audible grace '
before meat. The Quaker availed himself of !
the opportunity to transfer both of the trout 1
to his own plate, merely remarking when the 1
others opened their eyes, "Your religion teach.es
you to pray, but mine teaches me both to
* watch and pray."

CONDUCTS? BY '
REV. ROBERT LATHAN.
INTRODUCTION. tl
In taking charge of this department of the m
Enquirer, our only object is to do good. We tl
have no private ends to accomplish?no de- tl
nominational or sectarian views to promul- hi
gate. Whatever will tend to elevate the mor- ni
al and religious character amongst the masses; &
whatever will turn the sinner to God and cause bi
God's people to grow in grace, will be impressed
as duty; and whatever degrades man and u
dishonors God, will be censured. The good ei
man will be encouraged; the bad man will be p:
persuaded to do well. Virtue and piety will g]
be praised; sin and folly will be exposed as tl
"monsters of frightful mien." Our mission is ?
to preach Jesus and Him crucified for sinners, ti
The Bible is our text-book?our field, the ol
world.

&
Eighteen hundred and sixty-nine is num- j.
bered with the past. It seems but yesterday .
since it commenced. How fast years fly away. ?
? - - ? * - 11 i D
How solemn the thought that we are aii nas- ^
tening to an untried and unchanging eternity. .
One by one the teeming millions of the human
race are pouring into the ocean of another
world. The stream rushes resistlessly on. It ,
bids defiance to all impediments. It sweeps
all before it. Majestically time obliterates
every trace of human greatness. Pride and
vanity are tossed away by it, like the small ,
dust by the whirlwind.
To look back and review the past is always j
profitable if not pleasant It is the only ^
means by which we can accurately ascertain ^
our present standing in the sight of God. Let g
us review the events of the past year briefly, g
that we commence the present as wise men. Q
The past has been an eventful one. God in n
his providence has manifestly declared that
he has a controversy with us. He has turned
the heavens into brass and the earth into iron. ^
Our fields have not yielded their increase. ^
Fat lands have been turned into barrenness;
our country is desolate; "our land strangers
devour it in our presence, and it is desolate, as
overthrown by strangere." (
These things are facts which are seen and J
experienced by every reflecting man. Why "
are these things so ? Does God delight in the n
misery of his creatures? No. God is good, h
He hears the cry of the young lions. He h
sends them their food in due season. Why tJ
then has God so dealt with us ? The only in- ii
telligent answer that can be returned is the n
correct one. Our 81119. have ruined us. God Jb
has thwarted all our'plans because they were n
selfish and rebellious plans. We have asked n
and received, not because we desired to re- c
ceive, but in order that we might pamper our ii
own lusts. Many of us have attempted an ii
impossibility and hence we have failed. We a
have attempted to serve God and Mammon, p
We have provoked the jealousy of God. We 1
have excited His righteous indignation, and 0
he has, in mercy, filled our barns and grana- n
ries with emptiness. He might, speaking after
the manner of men, have sent us quick to h
destruction. &
The history of God's dealings with his peo- ft
pie reveals the fact that the abundant harvest ji
is an evidence of His love and approbation, and g
that rebels against His law and justice inhabit d
parched lands. But not only is the general S
scarcity of food which exists, an evidence of 1
ChvtV temfrrds im na a. Twrmlp. lyit. jj
the coldness and apathy which characterizesiso" tl
many professed Christians,is indicative of the p
same thing. The Chilrch is left as a cottage h
in a vineyard, as a lodge in a garden of cucum- d
bers, as a besieged city. 0, how desolate! sc
Her walls are broken down. The spider a:
weaves its web upon her ceiling; the bat hides tl
under the rubbish ofher broken down altars.
What a picture of the cold affections of those
who are called Christians. What a tax the
Church is! Dollars for ribbons and gewgaws, S5
and cents for the church. Hundreds of dol- sc
lars for wioe and brandy, and nothing for ^
the cause of Jesus. The family altar is broken p
~ ttmoo nf nrotror and nraisfi ia never

heard in the great majority of professed Chris- P1
tian families. The Bible is covered with dust
or laid away in some drawer only to be brought 01
out when some minister of the gospel visits *"?
the family. The Sabbath is converted into *1
a kind of gala-day; family instruction and 08
family discipline wholly neglected, and the ?
line of demarcation which separates the man
of the world from the Christian rendered, by ^
the acts of Christians, so indistinct that it can
never be seen only when Christians celebrate
the Lord's Supper. ^
In the midst of such a state of moral degeneracy,
we have evidence not only of God's displeasure
but also of His tender mercy. God 30
has dealt graciously with us. Each of us is a (
monument of his forbearance. We can sing
of His marvelous works. God never deals so .
_ gij
hardly with any of us, but He leaves us much
for which we ought to be grateful. How grate- P*
ful all the living ought to be that they are not *
in that lake which burns with fire and brim- 88
stone beyond the reach of mercy. How grateful
every creature should be that God lives ^i
and reigns, and that He will govern the world
in righteousness. God, by his dealings with ^i
us, is reasoning with us. He declares unto
us that if we will learn to do well and cease .
si]
to do evil, He will restore our land as at the .
beginning; but if we refuse and continue to 113
rebel against Him, He will devour us with W
the sword of His indignation and the destruc- .
tion of the trausgressoV andbf the sinner shall r^j
be together; and they l^hat forsake the Lord
shall be consumed. ^ ,

BIGO/TRY. d?
Every man thinks tniat in all things, and at
alf times, he acts the part of a rational crea
1 ^ .1 1 on
om each other in some cases in doctrines
hich lie at the very foundation of salvation;
i other cases they differ from each other only
l modes of worship.
It is not our purpose to say in what any ol
tese denominations are right or wrong. Cornon
honesty would lead us to confess thai
lere is much that is good in all, and some
lings that are wrong in all. But the most
imiliating confession of all is, that a largf
imber of those claiming connection with
ich and all of these denominations are men
igots. This position is tenable, howevei
veeping it may appear at first sight. Pro
stants are accustomed to brand the follow
s of the Pope with the title of "bigoted pa
ists;" but, unfortunately, we give too mucl
round for the Catholic to apply the same ti
.1 1 1 l? 1 L- 1
e to us. Mow many in tms iana 01 uoasu*
iligious light and liberty, and at the sami
me land of religious creeds and confession
f every hue, are able to give a reason for thi
rith that is in them? Many a man woulc
send a whole night in defending Presbyteri
nism or Methodism, or prelacy, who knows
terally, nothing about the fundamental prin
iples of either. As a general role, the con
dence of such individual is in proportion t<
is ignorance. There are two fhcts that sucl
idividual never for one moment doubts. Th
ne is that he is right in creed and practice
nd the other is, that every body who dares t
[link or act different from him ^n religiou
latters, is wrong?Wholly wrong. All tha
uch an individual wants to know ih, orders
tigmatize another as a heretic, is that he be
sags to a different denomination from him
alf. Such an individual, like the ancien
ews, regards all who are not called by hi
ame or the name of his denomination, a
eathen and in a hopeless condition. It is i
- - l 4.v:
reat misfortune tnat mere xu bu uiuuu ui tm,
seling in every man. It hinders the growtl
f grace in our hearts and renders our live
lore or less miserable.
The principle of bigotry, when fully devel
ped, ultimate in persecution. Hence it i
be duty of every man to banish bigotry fron
is mind and bigotry from his actions.
8ADDUCEE9.
About two hundred and fifty years befor
Ihrist, there flourished an individual calle*
Lntigonus Sochseus, who taught his disciple
to be like servants who r^rve their master
iot for the sake of feward." Sadok, one o
is disciples, being unable to understand wha
is master meant by this precept, inferre*
bat the principle which was designed to b
lculcated was, that in another world neithe
awards nor pnnishments were to be expected
Yom Sadok, the Sodduoees derived thei
ame. In point of numbers, the Sadducee
ever were of much importance; but on ac
ount of their wealth and the dignity of th
idividuals who were connected with the seel
; exercised considerable influence. It serve*
b a check to the Pharisees politically. Th
eculiar doctrines of the Sadducees were these
bey denied the existence of angels, and als
f spirits, and, as might be expected, they di<
ot believe in the resurrection.
The doctrine of an overruling Providenc
ad no place in their creed. Man was regard
i by them as absolutely free and possessed o
ill and uncontroled power to do good or evi
ist as be pleased. The Pharisees place*
reater stress upon the traditions of the El
ers than on the precepts of the Bible. Th
adducees rejected all traditions and all th
tible, except the five books of Moses, accwd
ig to some yithorities. is probable tna
ley only preiered these owks .iu all}' Trmc
art of the Bible. The fjfcdducees seem b
ave been very much like many modern infi
els, utterly destitute of any thing that re
smbles true and genuine dWotional feelings
ad treated with dignified soorn all who ha(
lese feelings.
JESUS OUR ADVOCATE.
Whenever our lives or our property are le
illy in jeopardy, we naturally look out foi
ime skilled attorney to defend our cause
Thenever a sinner is quickened into life b]
od's holy spirit, and made to see that his son
in danger of eternal perdition, he desires tc
it his case into the hands of some one who ii
lie and powerful to save. He can find nc
le who is capable of advocating his cause be
re the tribunal of the Most High but Jesus
1 Him he finds an able and eloquent advo
ite. Jesus understands the law by whicl
'is client is to be tried. Before His Father
i pleads that the law in all its requirements
is been met In his humanity He satisfiec
)th its preceptive and penal requirements
God hears the Son in behalf of the sinner
here is a powerful eloquence in his bleeding

ture. There is scarcely a man on eartn wno
would not feel most grossly insulted if it were ar
intimated that he were a' bigot Where is the
human being who has so much grace as to be .
able to say from the heart, "some of my ac- m
tions are prompted by a blind attachment to co
a particular creed." Pope says "an honest mi
man is the noblest work of God." Without
stopping to criticise the theology of the poet,
we may say that an honest man is the rarest sa
thing on earth; and the most unreasonable P"
thing is belief and practice without a rational mi
investigation of the thing proposed for belief ^
and practice. Men exhibit their bigotry in F1
their daily avocations and in their religious
beliefs. jn
All of us have blindly embraced and as jt
blindly adhere to tenets in religion for which
we are able to give no more plausible reason
than the dissyllable "because." A large minority,
if not a majority of the human family jg 3
are ready-to suffer martyrdom for principles jg
which are, in many cases, mere crotchets of m?
their own brains; or if principles taught in the pr(
Bible, the individuals do not know the fact in
any proper sense of the word. This can be
jasily tested. The protestant church is divi- fer
led and sub-divided into a great many fami- pic
ies or tribes, designated by the appellation of ing
lenominations. These denominations differ cle

urce of comfort to have an advocate ir
saven who pleads for us before the throne o:
od. The child of God may have no earthl)
iend to defend him, but his loving Savioui
ts on the mercy seat on high, and with ?
ithos that no words can describe and nc
jart can feel, looks upon his Father anc
,ys "Bless and pity them."
When the believer sins, as he often does
s advocate espouses his cause, and with ar
irnestness that admits of no denial, prays tc
s Father to forgive him.
Sin.?There is nothing that God hates bul
a; and there is no creature that he loves sc
tensely as the sinner. God poured out hh
rath upon his own Son when he stood at
irety for the sinner, and yet He so loved th<
l^ner that Hg gave his only ?on Jo die th(
st for the unjust. Sin planted t^ebrier ari<3
e thorn. Sin causes us to live & misery un
:r every earthly circumstance. 1 Sin brought
iath into the world. Sin causes all creation
groan and travail in pain. Sin dug the pit
'perdition, sin peopled that dreary abode
id sin "will keep its prisoners there." It is
i evil and bitter thing to sin against God.
Duty.?The only pleasures that we enjoy
this world, are those which arise from the
nsciousness of having doile our duty. The
an who has learned from the Bible his duty,
d has been enabled to perform it, fears no
. His hiding place is a munition of rocks,
fe from the storm and the tempest The
an conscious of having done his duty, enjoys
sfiable bliss. Gold cannot purchase such
joyment. It is better than gold ; it is more
ecious than fine gold.
The Bible.?The Bible is the oldest book
the world; it is the most learned of all books,
treats of time and eternity, of the soul and
e body, of heaven and hell. It teaches us
w to live happy and how to die blessed. It
aches us all that is worth knowing. There
no duty that we owe either to God or man but
plainly taught by it. It is God's book; He
ide and He has preserved it, and He will
sserve it.

Love of Christ.?Oh! how great the difence
between submitting ourselves to a comix
of rules and casting ourselyes upon a beat>
heart; between accepting a system and

a ordered a bushel of those oats last year, f!

; How to Keep Rats prom Destroys
' Harness.?Almost every person who use
harnes has been more or less annoyed by hav
ing tlem injured by rats. We give a fev
hints is to how this may be avoided, thougl
everybody knows, or affects to know, what if
, best. The recipes here given are collected
from different sources: Take about a teaspoonful
of cayenne pepper, mix it thoroughly
with a quart of oil, and rub the harness with
the mixture. This, it is claimed, will not
onb keep rata and mice from gnawing the
haness, out it will also prevent horses and
colls from chewing the lines or halters. Take
tw> quarts of green leeks, pour over them one
gslon of oil, and let it stand a few days beOvttt

litle benzine rubbed over the harness after it
Iff meoto,
Wthe idea that it injires the leather. One
*uice of aloee to one ga ilon of oil will prevent
iqifl from destroying the harness. It is also
Slimed that by mixing a small quantity, a
tiblespoonful, of pine tar to one quart of oil,
l&rness will be meet effectually protected
from any injury; bat if too much is put on,
the leather will notabsorb it. It will collect
dirt, besides makiig the harness unpleasant
to handle.?Carriq/e and Harness Journal.
?
Strength of Petals.?In the course of
various mechanial and manufacturing operations,
it has ben found necessary to test
the strength of arious metals, and from one
of the statement of the trials made we corncompile
the fUowing: A bar of cast lead
one inch squre breaks under a strain of
860 pounds; bar of cast gold of similar dimensions
wilbreak under a strain of 22,000
pounds ; a b^ of cast silver will not break
until the shin reaches 45,500 pounds; a
bar of cast/on will remain intact until the
strain excite 59,000 pounds; and the best
wrought i>n will bear a weigh of 84,000
pounds to* tar an inch square; and a similar
bar osteel has been made of such tenacity
as toft a weight of 150,000 pounds before
brewing. An alloy of two metals nearly
alw8 possesses greater tenacity than
either e does separately. A strip of sound
oak w^ an inch square, has been found to
lift ar^fain 17,300 pounds before breaking,
and pmilar strip of locust 20,000 pounds.
(Sanic Manures.?The cereals all reqUja
liberal supply of organic fertilizers for
th?evelopment of a heavy crop. In order to
gi the growing straw sufficient stiffness to
ejde it to maintain an erect position until
tfgrain has fully matured, a liberal supply
' manure must be provided. "Wheat requires
re silicate of potash than any other grain.
?r this reason, a soil that is composed largeof
mica. feldsDar. auartz. and alluminnns
,atter, if there be a fair supply of decompos- '
i vegetation in the form of decayed clover, ,
tay be rendered an excellent soil for the pro
uction of wheat. There is little danger of
pplying too large a quantity of wood ashes to
cn land. "Wood ashes will supply potash;
ad the sAnd and potash will form exactly the ]
material required in liberal abundance for "
Jjducing the rtro.g r
nmh is so fessential to give it proper stiffness,
id also to fortify the stems, from the injuriis
influences of rust and mildew. i

What You Do, Do Well.?After years
id years of inculcating the above principal 1
at should govern farmers in all their labors, ?
e find the world full of cultivators of the soil
lio live and act as though they had not read
heard of "doing things well" in their lives,
very thing they attempt to perform shows a
ck of care, attention, ana knowledge of
bat is to their own interests. Wherever
m find a farmer who has steadily grown
:h by the sweat of his brow, you will find a ?
an who does well whatever he performs. is
house is always in good repair, well paint- j
, etc.; his grounds around his dwelling p
atly laid out, with an abundance of good ?
ait and shade trees; his outhouses commodis,
well arranged, and also in good order,
is cattle and horses are of good stock and in
od condition, and he has a system of doing o
irk that accomplishes what he undertakes, _
id he does not leave everything half done as I
any farmers do who drag through life and sj
b poor.
About Horses.?From the Rochester XJnir
we take the following: "Horses, as a genii
thine, eet too much whiDDinsr and too
"" w " O' D " ~~ A X, o
tie feed. If a man loses his hat while driving
3 horse, he whips the horse to pay for it. If
runs into another wagon through his own
relessness, he whips his horse to make it all
jht. If his horse slips or stumbles, he gets
lipped for it?if he does anything he gets lipped
for it, and if he don't do anything he
ts the same. A great many horses know 'a A
;ht' more than their driver, and if they could ?
ange places with them, society at large A
iuld be tlr gainers, and so would horses." j b
