Humorous department, i
A gentleman, travelingsorae years since
in the upper part of Connecticut, called at s
a tavern and requested entertainment for p
the night. The landlord informed him r
that it was out of his power to accommo- t
date him, as his house was already full. r
He persisted in stopping, as he, as well as
his horse, was almost exhausted with trav- a
eling. After much solicitation the land- i
lord consented to his stopping, provided i
he would sleep in a certain room that had g
not been occupied for a long time, in con- <
sequence of a belief that it was haunted (
by the ghost of a barber who was reported n
to have been murdered in that room some |
years before. i s
"Very well," said the man; "I'm not j i
afraid of ghosts." 11
After having refreshed himself, he in- in
quired of the landlord how and in what i i
manner the room in which he was to J e
lodge was haunted. The landlord replied j s
mac snorny auer cney reureu u> re.-a nu i
unknown voice was heard in a trembling
and protracted accent, saying, "Do you
want to be shaved ?"
"Well," replied the man, "if he comes
he may shave me."
He then requested to be shown to the
apartment, in going to which he was conducted
through a large room, where were
seated a great number of persons at a
gambling-table. Feeling a curiosity which
almost every one possesses after having
heard ghost stories, he carefully searched
every corner of his room, but could discover
nothing but the usual furniture of
the apartment. He then laid down, but
did not close his eyes to sleep immediately,
and in a few minutes he imagined
he heard a voice saying:
"Do you w-a-n-t to be sh-a-v-ed?"
He arose from his bed and searched
every part of the room, but could discover
nothing. He again went to bed, but
no sooner had he begun to compose himself
to sleep thau the question was repeated.
He again rose, and went to the window,
the sound appearing to proceed from
that quarter, and stood awhile silent. After
a few moments of anxious suspense he
again heard the sound distinctly, and, convinced
that it was from without, he opened
the window, when the question was
repeated full in his ear, which startled
him not a little. Upon a minute examination,
however, he observed that the
limb of a large oak tree, which stood under
his window, projected so near the
house that every breath of wind, to a lively
imagination, made a noise resembling
the interrogation, "Do you w-a-n-t to be
shaved ?"
Having satisfied himself that his ghost [
was nothing more nor less than the limb of
a tree coming in contact with the house,
he again went to bed and attempted to
get to sleep; but he was now interrupted c
y peals of laughter, and an occasional (
volley of oaths and curses from the room
where the gamblers were assembled. c
Thinking that he could turn the late dis- t
covery to his own advantage, he took a t
sheet from the bed and wrapped it around
him, and, taking the wash-basin in his \
hand, and throwing a towel over his arm, f

and, suddenly opening the door walked v
in, exclaiming, in a tremulous voice:
"Do you w-a-h-t to be s-h-a-ved ?" I
Terrified at the sudden appearance of
the ghost, the gamblers were thrown into v
the greatest confusion in attempting to j
escape it?somejumping through the win- i;
dows, and others tumbling head over heels j
down the stairs. Our ghost, taking ad- c
vantage of a clear room, deliberately swept t
a large amount of money from the table
into the basin, and retired unseen to his
own room.
The next morning he found the house ^
in the utmost confusion. He was imrae- t
diately asked if he rested well, to which c
he replied in the affirmative. a
"Well, no wonder," said the landlord,
"for the ghost, instead of going to his own troom,
made a mistake and came to ours,
frightened us out of the room, and took j
away every dollar of our money." [
The guest, without being the least sus- c
Sected, quietly ate his own breakfast, and j
eparted, many hundred dollars richer by t
the adventure. c
He looked very pale, tired and dejected <3
as he threw himself on the lounge in the x
dark corner of the room. t
"Mom, I'm so sick," ho sighed with a g
suppressed groan. r
"My poor boy ? What ails you ?"
"What made you so sick ?" f
"Pa said at dinner time I would be s;pk
if I ate another dumpling, but I didn't
believe him, I eat another one and I'm
"I'm so sorry ; I guess I'll have to give 0
you a dose of castor oil." u
"I would rather be sick, ma, than to *

".Not it 1 put it in porter, men you ?
won't taste the oil." a
"I don't want the oil."
"Won't you, dear, if I give you a cup of
jelly to eat to take the taste of the oil out
of your mouth?" t
"Give me a big piece of cake to eat with c
the jelly?" >
"Yes, dear!" ?
"And a big orange ?" ?
"Yes, poor sick boy." r
"A big bunch of bananas and some s
candy?" 1
"Yes, dear." e
Andy's father came in at this point and
spoiled the boy's prospects of a feast of c
good things. Going up to Andy and in- t
quiring what the trouble was, Andy's
voice became very weak and in an almost *
inaudible whisper he gasped, "sick." In 8
fact his voice was so weak his sire was 1
obliged to stoop down to catch the word, v
and at the same time caught the fragrance 8
of a "two-for-five" breath. '
"Sick, hey? Been smoking, hey? You t
young Arab? (Cuffs him.) Smoking ci- v
gars hey? (Boxes his ears.) I'll learn you e
to smoke; come along here." f
And he takes Andy in the back yard and c
with a shingle persuaded him to never try ?
again to obtain good things under false i
Eretense, while his ma stood by wringing
er hands in anguish at her dear boy's
punishment, and mentally voting Andy's 1
father "a brute."?[Norristown Herald. f

A short time since a friend, who has re- j
cently been spending some time in Geor- J1
gia, related to the Atlanta Constitution an \
anecdote which shows how thoroughly c
scared the people of Georgia were during ?
the prevalence of the yellow fever in Sa- j
vannah. *
It seems that Judge B., of the supreme
court of that State, was in an upper coun- ^
ty at the time, but within twenty hours' f
run, by rail, of this terrible disease. ,v
Quite suddenly, late one afternoon, ne was '
seized with a headache, pains in the back, 1
limbs, etc. Having heard that these were v
salutations Yellow Jack extended to his *
victims on approaching him, the judge, in f
great consternation, applied to a friend, 1
who was posted, for advice. A hot in us- 11
tard bath was urgently recommended, and a
being prepared, the judge was soon laving {
himself in the irritating fluid. Presently I1
he felt better, and finding what he heliev- ;
ed was a cake of soap at the upper end of 1
the bath-tub, he began to apply quite free- v
ly on his person. After some pleasant ex- a
ercise in this way, he looked down for the f
first time on his body and limbs, and dis- J
covered that he was turning black. ()
horror! His friend was hurriedly sent for, a
came, and declared that the symptoms
were intensely expressive of yellow fever
of the worst kind. fi
"But," said the judge, "I feel no pain?I c
feel well. i
"So much the worse; the absence of pain t
is a marked symptom." i:
"Good heavens!" said the judge; "what i
shall I do?" fc'
"The only hope is mustard. Hub away!" a
was the only advice his friend could give, e
And he did rub with a will. He used i:
the soap on every possible^ pore ; and after t
some minutes he sent for a candle (for the t
twilight was fading), to ascertain the ex- t
act cuticular condition. On examination s
he was as black as a crow, and the soap? s

ForgETFulnESS?A business man and j t,
financier of the first rank in Boston is so j P
absent minded that he occasionally forgets j n
to go to his dinner. His customary hour'
for this meal?when he remembers it?is o'clock.
Theother day, quite absoroed in i i
business, he worked steadily on until 4 ! p
o'clock, and then began to have quite a h
natural sense of absentness and yearning j ii
in his stomach. "Dear me," he said mus- ti
ingly, applying the flat of his hand to his s:
waistcoat, "I wonder what I ate for dinner | tl
that disagrees with me ."'?[Boston Tran-1 e

Professor Holmes says that, in t 1k? jf
cramble for money and for success, the j
jreat majority of the people pay too little i
egard to that cheerfulness which should |

neal. It is very common for husbands
md wives, either from toil, care or per- j i
ilexity, to bring home their long-pent-up
11 nature, and manifest it in scolding, : 1
[rumbling or sullen silence at the dinner j

Iren, the effects upon their young minds i
ire deplorable.

This is all wrong. Whatever perplexi- ]
ies may arise during the day should be j
hrown aside before mealtime. Pleasant! j

ihould be attendants at every meal. Am- j

BAD Ll'CK. 1
What some people call bad luck is fre(uently
nothing but the natural result of ]
heir shiftlessness or bad management, i
iVith a little energy and system in the 1
onduct of their affairs the misfortune at- 1
ributed to bad luck would not attend
hem. Here is a case in point:
"I'm always an' forever navin' oau j
uck !" whined a listless-looking man to a
fiend to whom he had come for help. .
'Only yesterday my hoss fell in an old '
veil on the place and broke his neck."
"Why didn't you keep the well cov- 1
"How should I know the old fool critter t
vould go tumlin' inter it?" asked the man (
n a tone of surprise. "The well had been
incovered for a year, an' nothin' ever fell ^
n it before. Then my granary leaked the \
ither night during that big storm, and t
here's all my wheat ruined." i
"Well, why didn't you have the roof
ixed before ?"
"'Cause it never leaked before and I 4
lidn't know it was going to leak then. .
Vnd here that very night one of my best
ows strayed off, and I do'noas I'll see her
"Was vour pasture fence in good or- i
ler ?" s
"Yes, all but a little place that I calcu- i
ated on fixin' the next day. The fence <
lad been bad there for a month, and the
ows never got out of it before," he said ]
n weak defense of his carelessness. "And 1
hen,you know," hecontinued, "the worst j
?f all was that my barn burned down last i
"Yes, I heard you set fire on the hay by
Iropping the ashes from your pipe in it 1
vhile smoking in the barn."
"Well, that was the way of it; but I {
hought they were dead ashes. I've 1
moked in barns for twenty years, an' I
lever set fire to one before, an' it's noth- c
ng but my bad luck that made me set fire i
o the barn this time. Bad luck seems to s
oiler me around all the time." s
Cold Water and Ice.?There are j
loubtless many people, says Hall's Journal f
if Health, who do not know that it is t
isually quite safe to allow the fever pa- (
ient suffering from great thirst all the
rater he wants. In fact, cold water is held
s a remedial agent, a potent means of re- (
lucing fever. The effect of a glass of ice J
rater is often immediate and marked, the
ever and restlessness of the patient being 5
loticeably lessened thereby. He who is I
ortured by thirst always wants a glass full
if water held to his lips. Therefore if he t
s to be denied all he wants, use a small c
;lass, but at least have it full. Bits of ice t
.re always harmless, and are often very }
efreshing. Pieces the size of peas when t
wallowed will not infrequently relieve
lausea. This suggests that there should be r
xereised care in the selection of ice which {
s to be used in the sick room. It must be ,
lear and clean ; snow ice is forbidden, as .
?eing the most likely to hold impurities. ;
Here is an expedient for keeping ice for 1
he sick: Cut a piece of clean flannel
.bout eight inches square. Put this?after >
nakinga small hole in the centre for the >
rater to run through?over the top of a 1
;lass tumbler; press the flannel down to *
lalfor more of the depth of the tumbler, '
hen bind the flannel fast to the tumbler t
vith a tape or cord, or confine it by an
Iastic band. When ice is put into this g
lannel cup, lay over it another piece of i
lean flannel, three or four inches square, t
5o covered, it will keep for hours, even t
n warm weather. t
IIow to Drive the Boys from the
'arm.?If you wish to drive the boys (
roiri the farm, send them out to cut green ^
rood at the back door, and tell them they i
nust get up at live o'clock and make a
ire from it. Send them out to milk by j
antern light, in the dead of winter, when ^
he cold winds are blowing through the
racks of the barn. Have them drive the
attle to water and be obliged to chop a *
lole in the ice in order to let them drink. *
^et them carry water the year round up '
till from a spring. Have them turn the x
rindstone for hours. Send them out to }
>ull wool from the carcass of a sheep,
rhen they have to hold the nose with one
land and pull with the other. Make j
hem do all the drudgery and disagreeable a
rork found to be done on a farm, giving t
he pleasant work to the hired man. Tell 1
hem there is no time for fishing or hunt- L
tig. And when you have to come to your t
neals, when everything should be pleasnt,
and you should wear a smile on your
ace, cry out and say: "We are going to c
lave a drouth, and we will have to go to f
he poor-house,'" and "the season is so wot
hat there will be a failure of crops, and I j
rill not be able to pay my taxes." Fret
nd scold about everything that does not ;
;o just right. These, and other things x
hat could be mentioned, are driving the
ioys from the farm.?[Louisville Farm j

- -To
Detect I.m pure Water.?Fill a perectly
clean quart bottle half full of water,
ork and shake it; remove the cork and see ,
f any odor can bo detected at the mouth of '
he bottle. Cork the bottle again and put
t into a warm place for a few hours, or set t
t into a pan of hot water for an hour. (
ihake, uncork and test again by smell. If i
n unpleasant or faint, musty odor is per- r
eptible, the water requires more minute l
nvestigation. The second simple test is n
o evaporate a quart to dryness in a new c
in pan or cup, and note the character of t
he residue and what happens when it is
trongly heated in a metal spoon. If the 4
ediment left after evaporation is small r
nd on being burnt on a metal spoon gives J
ise only to such an odor as comes from ?
iurning*vegetable matter, the water is not '
reatly contaminated with sewage. Hut j1
f the sediment is in considerable quanti- *
y, dark in color and burns, giving oil" the *
ieculiar odor of burning hair or other ani- Jrial
matters, then the water is foul. 1
SSaT To expel mosquitoes, the Scientific c
American advises to take of gum cam- i

iking care that it does not ignite. The c
moke will soon fill the room and expel a
lie mosquitoes, and they will not return, t
ven though the windows should be left s

been in the hands of farmers for moro than
iftecn years, and is to-day perhaps the most
opular farming implement of its kind that
as over been oil'ored to them. It is used in
very State and Territory in the United Statos,
nd "in Canada, Russia, Mexico, New Zealand,
iiistralia, South America and Ireland. It has
een awarded medals of superiority by the
reat Amorican Institute Fair, The World's
Exposition at New Orloans, and at every State
nd local display of agricultural implements
,'lioro exhibited.
The above illustration gives a correct idoa
f the general appoarance of the Corbin J larrow
eady for use. It has steel disks that are turned
) a knife edge. They aro firmly and substanially
attached to the axle by means of a special
ut and key which clamps them firmly in poition.
It is impossible to loosen this nut by
nyof the accidents or operations of field work,
ut if desired to tako the Harrow to pieces, a
jw moments' work will readily detach those
arts and enablo the operator to take oil" or get
lit any of the disks in eithor gang.
It has a wooden T beam?steel axles?wooden
eat standards?wrought hand lever?anti-fricion
balls in bearings. The Corbin Harrow
as the first to adopt and secure by letters of
atont, case hardened anti-friction balls for the
mrnals, to prevent the wearing of the boxes
nd to lesson the draft. The entire boxing is
rotceted by sand bands and is furnished with
elf oiling boxes covered with a dust proof oil
ap. The axle revolves in a bearing formed of
levon chilled iron balls, which makes tho mahiiio
the lightest draft harrow in the world.
Two sizes of disks aro used. The smallest
izo is i:? inches in diameter and tho largest 10.
The manufacturers make harrows with 12,
!!, 20 and 24 disks each, but oxporienoe has
ornonstrated tho fact that the 10-inch, 12-disk,
r the 10-inch, 12-disk, six foot cut, is best
dapted to general farm work.

l Few Words of Praise for the Harrow.
Tho following words of praise for tho Corbin
lisk Harrow aro published for the information
f those of our readers who aro not familiar
dtli this most valuable implement. As each
.itiiess is known by a largo number of our
eaders, either personally or by reputation, we

ill bo convincing to the most skeptical:

Mr. Rob't E. Guthrie's Evidence.
CiuTirmrsvilt.k, S. C.. July 5, 18H9.
Catt. Ii. M. Grist : Dear Sir:?I have a
orb in Disk Harrow which I have been using
ir.several years, and consider it the most valublo
fanning implement of which I have any
nowledgo. I use my Disk Harrow in sowing
II of my small grain, and it does the work
letter than any implement I have ever used.
<and that has been cultivated in cotton or corn,
lay bo sown without any preparation whatver,
and an ordinary hand, with two mules,
an sow and cover six to eight acres in a day.
III that is necessary is to sow the seed on the
round, and then run tlio Harrow over i^ one
me; but better results will bo obtained if the
[arrow is run over the ground two or three
ines. As a time and money saver, aside from
ic superior quality of work it does, its value
an hardly be estimated at the seasons at which
10 small grain is sown. The Harrow is very
soful in pulverizing rough plowed land of any
ind, especially bottoms, and it will pay any
irmer to use one. Unlike the ordinary tootli,
r Acme harrow, it not only pulverizes the
urface, but will pulverize to the depth to
'liich the plow has gone and often deoper. It
mi be used to advantage on land that is too
fet to plow, without injury to the land. There
liould, in my opinion, bo a Disk Harrow on
very woll regulated farm, and in my opinion
0 harrow yet introduced is equal to the Corbin
1 simplicity, durability and thoroughness of
ork. Respectfully, * R. K. Guthrik.

I1IIK inoilern Road Cart is constructed on
I scientific principles, and is 0110 of the most
jpular vehicles now before the public. It is
ieil by tlio Preacher, the Farmer, the Merlant,
tho Physician, the Lawyer, the Moclian,
and in fact all classes of men.
o.kI Carts are Worth from $15 to $175.
The proprietor of Tim Kkijuikkk, realizing
e fact that the Road Cart is fast growing in
iblic favor in this section, and also realizing
e fact that the people of York and surroundg
counties always appreciate a good thing,
is succeeded in making arrangements with
io of the most reliable manufacturers in the
nited States to furnish him with
oa<l Carts as Premiums to Club-Makers.
io Cart we oiler to club-makers is pronounced
j all who have examined it to be the best conructed,
tho lightest and handsomest cart they
ivo seen, and thore is no doubt that it is by far
e best that has over been otlored in tbis secm
at tho prico, and is not intended, as the
e manufacturers write us, "to compete with
e cheap Wostorn-mado Cart, except in qualIt
would bo an impossibility to sell tho
: ment, I would say that I consider myself ill
competent to do "the implement justice, hill
will try to give some idea of my estimato of it>
value. I consider the Corbin Disk Harrow U
he the most valuablo farming implement I havi
ever used, or ever expect to use. There is m
other implement of which I have any knowledge
that will do as many different kinds o
work, or do tho work so well. There is no implement
which will do equal service that I
have oyer seen, that is so simple in construe
i tion or which is less liable to ge', out of order
j It is one of the few improved fi.rming imple
ments which can be used to advantage by th<
ordinary negro. Tho Corbin Harrow will more
j than pay for itself in one season if given //?/,
J a chance. I now have 011 inv farm a 10-inch
! 12-disk Corbin Harrow, the original price o
! which was ?10, and although the implement has
been in use nearly five yeirs, if it was impossible
to got another, I would not take five times
its cost for it. In conclusion, let 1110 say thai
j some of my assertions may sound cxtravagan
to some of my brother farmers who are noi
1 familiar with tho Corbin Harrow, but I wil
I say to those who may doubt any of my state
j ments, that I will take pleasure iu demonstrat|
ing tho truth of oacli and every assortion U
the entire satisfaction of all who will call at 1113
farm near town. I hope to see, or hear, at ai
| early day, of a Corbin Harrow being on th<
j farms of hundreds of farmers, in this soction.
Very Respectfully, W. M. Wai.kkk.
Mr. P. H. Dover's Verdict.
. j Gkovkk, N. C., July 10, 1880.
Ca it. L. M.Okist: Dear .SirI have owner
I a 10-inch Corbin Disk Harrow for tho past foui
j years and hayo put it to every possible test ant
J it has given entire satisfaction. I had long fell
I tho need of a harrow that would pulverize tin
1 soil thoroughly from four to six inches deep
and realized that this could not bo done b\
any drag or tootli harrow, for they only pulverize
the surface, leaving many clods or lump!
untouched, and these clods would be worker
to the surface in cultivating the crop; and al
intelligent farmers know that cloddy lam
does not give the best results. Hence the greai
importance of a harrow that will pulverize tin
soil as deep as tho plow goes. My harrow wil
thoroughly pulverize to a depth of .seven inches
I want nothing better in stalk land in putting it
wheat or oats than the Corbin Harrow, for i
not only does better work than a plow, but is
: so much taster, cutting six feet at a time, anf
all farmers know the importance of savin;
! time at the season when these crops are usuallj
1 sown. I yonturo the assertion that no farmei
! who owns a Corbin Harrow would be withoui
it fortwice its cost. Two great advantages tin
harrow possess over most improved farming
implements is its simplicity and durability
Any sleepy-headed free negro can operate it i
ho has sense enough to drive a wagon. I hav<
prepared stubble land for planting, whore ther<
was no rocks or stumps, with my Harrow, bj
harrowingit twice, crossing the first work witl
tlio last, as well or better than i have ever tion<
with a plow. Much more might be said about
the Corbin Harrow but I think I have sai(
enough to induce farmers to inquire into its
merits. All who investigate will bo converted
