And as fast as I dreamed it was coined into number. I dreamed that a law had been recently made. That a ux on old bachelor's pates should be laid And in order to make them all willing to marry. The tax was as heavy ns uien conld well carry. The bai lielors grumbled and said 'twas no use Twas monstrous injustice and horrid abnse, And eworu that to save their own heart's blood from spilling. To the day of their death they would ne'er pay a .billing. Tho Legislature determined their plan to pnrsne. So the_\ -et all the bachelors up at vendue A crier was sent throiipli the town, to and fee. To rattle his bell aud liis trumpet le blow. And to bawl out to all be met on the way— "Ho! lorty old bachelors to be sold here to-dsyl* And presently all the old maids Iu the town. Each oil" in her very Lest bonnet and gowu, Frottttl.irty to sixty, lair, plain, red and pala. Of every description, all flocked to the sale. The auciioneer then in his service began, And called out aloud, as he held out a man— "Here is an old bachelor—who wants to buy I" In a twinkle every maiden responded—I, I. In short, at a huge and extravagant price The ba lielors all were sold off in a trice And forty bright maMens, gome younger Each biiged ati old baoi.elor home on her shoulder. Jshn Qnln Advertlsetb for hi. Dog. '/The dog is ti very useful animal. That is, when he is active in the pursuit of rodent vermin, and don't bite. As the high school compositions always i dogs. Always like to have them about letting you know when anybody is lurking around, and then they bay a deep-mouth ed welcome home," when you've been out, which is very refreshing." To be sure, they sometimes howl a little too much at night, when you chain 'em up in the back yard, but this is easily remedied by a prop er application of boot-jacks and paper weights. I own a dog, black and tan ter rier. Has his ears clipped to a sharp point, and his tail amputated. Tail points straight upwards now, when it was first cut it was inclined "to curl. Tendency was so strong that it threw the dog into a frightful scries of back somersaults, that must have ended his existence if I hadn't tied him down. After that I put the frag mentary caudal in splints, and be gets along now with only a slight hitch in his hind legs, that gives him the appearance of traveling in a continuous canter. lie was a nice dog, used to look very fe rocious and would fly around the room when anybody said rats," although I never knew him to catch any. But he was great at raw beef. In that respect I never saw his equal. He arswers to the name of Jack." I suppose there must be several million dogs who rejoice in the same corrupted cogno men. Jack strayed away a week or two ago, left the manna of my house for the flesh-pots of some beguiling stranger, I suppose. Missed him when I came home. House seemed empty without him. His "bark" wasn't "on the sea" or in the parlor, or in the second story front, or any where else. Children cried for him, while our Thomas-cat no longer mounted hurri edly on the chairs and table as he ap proached. I was distressed. I consulted with iny wife, I advertised for him, offered five dollars reward. Advertisement ap peared in the morning papers. King at the door bell about A. M.— Whole family in bed. llose and put my head out of the window. Man with two spotted dogs, that looked as if they had just recovered from severe attack of the measles. Fellow looked up and wanted to know if "either of them was him.''— Don't use profane language, to simply said no," and shut the window. Door bell rang eighteen times within the next hour. Got up at last aud dressed. Begun to eat my breakfast. Another ring at the bell. Short man with shiny hat.— Wore what my oldest girl called spit curls." Had a bull dog, with a head like a cast-iron water-spout, and crooked legs. Said he'd found my dog. Told him that wasn't hint. Said he knew it was, rather savage. Dog began to growl, and looked hard at me. Assumed a mild, persuasive tone, and described niv lost canine. Fel low said, anyhow his was a better dog than mine, and he guessed he would leave him. I said I wouldu't have him under any circumstances. Fellow pushed the dog, and said, S—s—ketch 'era." Dog made a dash at me. Sprang aside, and shut the door in his facc. Went in the parlor and watched him go out through the front gate. Saw another man coming in. Had a ridiculous poodle with a brass collar around his neck. Threw up the tuld hitn that wasn't my dog, so he needn bring iAm «ved me with a sarcastic smile, and said I couldu afford to own a dog like that. Told him I didn't want to, either. Said that dog had killed his nineteen rats in four minutes, he had. Said I wouldn't believe him if he crossed his breast to it. Fellow then dared me to como out. Said he would poke me in the nose, or something of that sort. I didn't go out. Another ring at the bell. This time a fellow iu a fur cap, and a yellow mongrel that had but one eye. Asiced me if I had lost a dog. Said yes. Fur cap said he had t'ound him, and wanted the reward. Told him that wasn't my dog. Fur cap wanted to know if my dog wasn't named 4ack. Said he was. He then called his bilious looking canine by that name. Dog flapped his attenuated tail against the Cis o k e y AT THE LOWEST Above Pearsall A HAVING PRICES. Church's, (545) McGREGOR U S O E D. S.

USt avement three or four times, and flung undamaged optic around in a wild sort of style- Wasn't convinced, however, and the fur cap left, after breaking the third commandment in a most horrid manner. Hadn't got fairly in the house before there was another call. This time a chap in tattered raiment, nothing purple about him but his nose, and no fine linen on him, or coarse either as far as I could see. Had a big black and tan terrier with him. Dog looked a good deal sacred. Had a way of putting his tail between his legs. My im pression is that the fellow went out and hunted up a dog to get the reward. Did n't seem to take kindly to his education. Syntax was defective. Said he had "fetch ed back that dog of vourn." Told him that was not the dog I had lost. Fellow ins'sted that it was. Seemed rather down hearted becauso 1 wouldn't take him.— Asked me if I didn't observe how glad the dumb beast was to sec me. Said I hadn't observed it Then another man came with a fierce- were open, and had been engaged in that blood-thirsty occupation ever sinco. Told him I couldn't take him. Man said he wouldn't leave without the five dollars.— Said I would see him in the tomb of the Capulets first. Fellow thought I was swearing at him, and struck at iuc. Dog took it up ri^lit off, flew at me nnd tore my trowsers, l»esides taxtin^ iny flesh. I escaped into the entry, shut the door and loeked it. Determined not to answer any more rings. Bell was pulled two hundred and seventy-five times more. Didn't an swer it. Understood afterwards that nev eritl of my friends had been to see n»e, and ^one away offended. About, dinner time went up and looked out of the win dow. Found seventy-five or eighty men there, all of whom had doga. liull ter riers, spaniels, setter pups, blood-hounds, double-noted pointers, Newfoundlands, lap-dogs, whiffets, grey-hounds, mastiffs, mongrels. Dogs with straight tails, curly tails, bob-tails, and no tails at all. Yel low, black, white, brown, spotted and flea bitten.

Crowd all commenced to talk at once. Dogs all howled, yelped, barked and snarled. Couldn't hear my own voice, and shut the window in disgust. Haven't seen my dog yet. Don't over expect to see him.

A.lcena« and Prohibition. In many quarters the License and Xo Lictnse is*ue is before the people in some form or other and with great or moderate intensity. There are occasional drinkers who, see ing the evils of drinking to excess all about them, are going in for prohibition in hon est hopes that some good may be done. And there are avowed, practical tempe rance men—of the old school, who are fa voring the freedom to sell without license or restraint, or else licensing with strin gent discriminations as to who are licens ed, so that men of average good behavior and moral responsibility are authorized to sell the deviiisih stuff which, as lately compounded of poisoned drugs and alco hol, seems to lead men to become outlaws from the moment it leaves the still till it runs down their throats. We confess to favoring the licensing of the best men that will undertake the sale of these drunk-producing liquids, believing that greatly less of moral obliquity and crime will follow the sale.of liquors so au thorized and regulated than by any other practice. We would use the whole law and its in terpretations by the courts to regulate the sale, to keep sellers and drinkeis within safe moral bounds, and to protect commu nity from the support of those impoverish ed and diseased by drink. AVe grant it would be better to abstain and to enforce abstinence upon all—were it possible to carry numbers enough to en force such abstinence. Believing it im possible to secure the numerical power, at least until a vastly higher general stage of intelligence shall prevail, we shall do what is practical if not logical, and what seems metaphysically right, however open to criticism. On the first page of the Herald we have feading iublishcdthe experience of some of the men of Massachusetts, a state that has been trying on Prohibition and Xo-Li cense these dozen years. The legislature of that state and those who have support ed the law from the lirst, now seriously think of adopting such laws as we have in Wisconsin and abandoning just such as some of our people think of trying on. We may be wrong. Some may doubt our sincerity. We confess to entertaining some doubts even of the position we have taken and publicly record. Therefore, as new lights are lighted and crooked, bad ways are made good and straight by fur ther travel on the whiskey side-walks we may in like manner change, reform and soberly travel some new way. We have been wrong very often and have changed just as often. We now think we did wrong for years in support ing No-license, thereby practically insur ing discredit to licensed selling, aud shov ing the business adrift among sharks and pirates. Having failed, and failing as we must in reformatory measures till a day of higher mental illumination shall appear, wo shall aim to put the business in trustier hands and there leave it. And as to men of excessive drinking, we shall try to tA»*o-w atich obstacles in their way as shall confound their tongues and lead them to scatter away and take to sober pursuits and associations as did Jeptha when his father was in wine, we shall walk backwards and cover up the old mau till soberness shall make hint pre sentable. If prohibition be a failure in Massachu setts, what else can be expected for the West with even stronger laws against the traffic! Good God we cannot even sup port a dog law And if a few influential money shavers nullify and even popular ize a nullification pf our assessment laws, and by their example elevate perjury to decency and dignity, what is to become of any legalized prohibitory liquor measures that cau be adopted! Let Major I'uriuan set the public schools ablaze, and keep them so till another gen eration is installed—the old passing away with speed accelerating in just proportion as whiskey-guzzling shall increase. We hail the new and better era when the cold water pump, in hands of a more intelli gent race, shall drown out the still-worm of Deacon Jones' distillery of olden time! We have faith in a glorious future.— Co. Herald—John C. Cover. Fasnlnlne Psshisni-Plala Talk by Catholic Clergyman. In a recent lecture for the benefit of the Young Mens' Catholic Association, in Buf falo, Rev. W. F. Payne, of Rochester, de voted his time mainly to commenting on the present fashions.

Caught rats before his eyes child ten years of aj|e, said, WHOLE No. 552. You smile, said the reverend speaker, but I am iu earnest. He had a certain amount of reason for what he said, and that reason is not cred itable to the young women. Extravagance in dress makes it difficult for men in the married state to fulfill their obligations, and this is the reason why young men do not want to get married. The young wo men have become so fond of dress that the young men are frightened, and this is not for the good of society or religion. Let mi g.ve the young ladies this advice. Be less anxious about your appearance spend less of your earnings in adorning vour persons, and think of your souls. Remember that the moment will force it self upon you when you will be stretched out lifeless in the coffin. When that time comes there will be a simple winding sheet that may be bought for a few cents, to wrap you in. The ornaments of virtue which have accompanied you all through life, and will remain throughout an end less eternity. Though the great vice among women at the present day is a want of economy, still there is something of an immodest nature. There never was a time when women stud ied more sedulously the art of dressing than at the present time. It has been re duced to a tegular system, and the dress ing of the Itodv is just as much an art as sculpture or painting. If the women had spent half as much time in adorning the soul as the bedy they would have been saints long s'iht. leaving the sterner sex in the background. Woman has a special mission to rem ve the rough spots and smooth the uneven surface of man, and make him love purity by presenting it to him every dav in her person. When wo man forgets iier mission, and her habits excite only illicit love, the result is social and moral degradation. A young lady who dresses in the fashion of the present day, does not dress as "becometh women professing godliness with works." There are certain things for puffing and padding which one cannot describe. They nave but one purpose, to make a woman appear what she should not wish to ap pear, lascivious. It is a very common thing for a young lady to go into a millin ery store and expend from twenty-five to one hundred dollars, and then issue from the door in such a way that her own mother would not be able to recognize her. They spend a great deal of money in mak ing themselves appear to the young gentle men precisely what they are not. A young gentleman said to me "Marry whom am I to marry You don't know what they are. They can go into a millinery shop, and if you marry them, you will find they are not what they represent them selves to be." This is one reason w hy so many young men hesitate about entering into the state of wcdlock. The territory now known as Wisconsin was claimed by France, on the discovery of its missionaries and travellers in 1»70, who governed it until they ceded it to Great Britain, 1763. It was held by the British nation until 17S:J, when it was ce ded to the I'. S. It was then claimed by Virginia for one year, when she ceded all her possessions, Kortheast of the Ohio, to the U. S. Wis. was then thrown under the territorial government of Ohio, by the ordinance of 17*7. On the 4th of July, 1SOO, Indiana Territory was organized, and Wis. placed under its jurisdiction, where it remained until 1809, when Illi nois Territory was organized, and it was attached to that territory until April Nth, 181S, when Illinois became a state. It was then attached to the Territory of Michigan, until organized into the Terri tory of Wisconsin, July 4th, 1N36. So that Wis. was governed by the king of France 92 years by the king of Great Britain 20 years by the State of Virgin ia 1 year by the Territory of Ohio 16 vears by Indiana Territory 9 years by Illinois Territory 9 years and" by Michi gan Territory 18 years. She continued a territory of" the U. S. nearly 12 years, when on the 13th of March, 1848, she be came the 30th state in the Union. The Indianapolis Joarnal of the 9th relates the following: A friend gives an account of a most terrible case of burial alive of a hand some young lady at Jacksonville, Illinois. Some time last summer a young lady sev enteen years of ngc suffered wltn the toothache, went to bed with a small phial of chloroform, for the purpose of quieting her teeth. Iu the morning she was found to all appearance dead, which was confirm ed by the opinions of several physicians who were called and examined tier body. She was then buried. A few days since her relatives were about to remove from Jacksonville, having located in another State, and the remains of the young lady exhumed, for the purpose of taking them to their new home. Curiosity prompt ed the opening of the coffin, when they were horror strickes on finding the corpse turned over, both hands full of hair, and the clothing torn to shreds, revealing the horrible truth that the young lady had been buried alive. The chloroform had placed her in a deep trance, the awakening from which was in her coffin and grave. The lady was engaged to be married at the time of her supposed death. A more heart-sickening case we never remember to have read or heard of. The IIeao or a uFathdr Payne, I am surprised that you should even think I was going to be married. Bless your life (his very words,) I could not keep my wife iu dry goods. [Laugh ter. When I become a rich man, then I will marry, but not before, because I want to do the thing properly." [Laughter.] Dead Man Tries to Speak.—A poor fellow was guillotined here a few days after our arrival. Accord ing to the custom his head and body were given to the surgeons for the advancement of science. An experiment was tried with the head with a very interesting result.— They injected into the arteries fresh arte rial blood, taken from a dog, and shortly afierward the head gave unmistakable signs of life. The color returned to the cheeks and lips, the eyes opened brightly and gazed upon those around, the lips moved as if attempting to speak, and the whole face bore the semblance of active life. So soon as the operator ceased to in ject the life blood of the dog, the appear ance of death rapidly succeeded. It was earnestly held by the eminent surgical gentlemen in attendance, that during the operation the brain was in full and natural action, and that the lips tried to utter the last thought that found resting place in the mind of the condemned.—Paris Letter We copy and commend the following article from the Mason City Republican.— Doc.

Notice.—Arrangements will be made, so that farmers of this county can be sup plied with all the flour they aiay want for their own URe, payable in wheat next fall, at the market prices, with freight added.

An enterprising farmer of Belgium has devoted a farm to hen keeping. lie has an immense yard, filled witn two thousand fowls, for which he purchases weekly two or three horses, which are cut up and boiled. The broth goes to fatten a hund red hogs, the flesh is chopped up for the hens, and the bones are sold to the sugar refiners to make charcoal. The eggs are sent to England, and the hens follow then when no longer profitable for laying. A citizen of Warrenton, Ya., killed, a few days since, a hen which had not laid for some months. Upon being opened, fourteen full-sized eggs—oue of them as large a* a turkey ergs—were taken from her. The shells had not formed* So MM the Warrenton Index. If anything in the world will make .n feel badly, except pinching his ting* era in the crack of a door, it is unques tionably a quarrel. No man fails to tninlt less of himself after it than before. It de grades him in the eyes of others, and whal is worse, blunts his sensibilities on the on hand, and increases the power of passion* ate irritability on the other. The truth it, the more peaceably and quietly we get on the better for our neighbors. In niiM cases out of ten, the course is if a mai cheats you, cease to deal with him if h« slanders you take care to live so that no one will believe him.

A Serious Charge.—A prominent cler gyman in the city of New York, duringm late religious discourse, made the follo\tp ing severe charge against the female po|W tion of humanity thereabouts, lie says In relation to freedom from sin, he held that the desire, an uncontrollable desire ti) commit sin was often the consequence at the education and habits of the parents of the child who had it. It was well known that at the establishment of A. T.

One of them was ordered to stand forward while th* indictment wn« rend, \mt he resisted, and' said—"Look yer, Bow, I nin'ttlcbor n hul— tuk de mule—I'm de boy dat tief de'gun This was ingenuous, at least, and showed the pride of the soldier, who felt sure thai stealing a gun was no such miserable o£ fence as was the stealing of a mule.— Another, Incoming impatient at the lonf§ delay of justice in his particular instuncf^, said to the officer "Look yer, Boss, yon keep me yer two days a'ready why nilC gib me a hundred lash at once"an' le' ntc go?"
