And 01 this class were the present own. aim.

' ' ' ' The lawyers fees and the loss by dam ages from each other's cattle had 'already amounted to a sum sufficient to' have built a fence around their entire estates. But what was that compared to the satisfaction or having thair own way? At last, one day, Miss Letitia Gill, a wow man much respected in the village, and of gome weight as a land-owner and tax-payer, sent for Mr. Babcock to come and .'see her on business a summons which he made haste to obey, as how could it be otherwise where a lady was concerned? 1 1 Miss Letitia sat at her window sewing a seam, but she dropped her work and took off her spectacles when Mr. his appearance. So you got my message; Babccck made thank you for coming, l m sure, qh oown, uo. x suppose my man Isaac told you I wanted to consult you on business a matter of equity, I may .say. , It can't be expected that we women folks should be the best iud?e3 about such we -. a 1 things, you know. There's . Isaac, to be sure, but then he lives on the place; maybe he wouldn't be exactly impartial in his judg ment about our affairs." "Jee so,"' said Mr. Babcock. Well, tne state of the, case is this; when Isaac came up from the long meadow to-J ay, and an uncommonly good yield there' is iirhen he came up to dinner, he" found that stray cows had broken into the vegetable 'räderi," ; : V V: r;:. "He did. hev?" ft T yom fancy the riot made. I declare, Isaac was almost ready to use profane language." I am not sure that he didn t; and alter all, I couldn't feel to reproach him very severe ly, fbfjthe pains he has.taken'.with that garden is something amazing; working and digging, and watering, and now see it all torn and trampled so that you wouldn't know which was beets and which was cucumbers. It's enough to raise any body's temper." "It is se." said Mr. Babcock. u And that isn't all. for by the looks of things, they must have baen rampaging io the orcnard and clover-field before they got into the garden. Just you come and see;" and putting on her sun-bonnet. Miss Letitia showed Mr". Babcock over the damaged pre cincts. You don't happen to know whose ani . mals did the mischief?" said Mr. .-Babcock. - ; M Well I didht observe them in particular myself, but Isaac said there was one with a peculiar white mark, something like a cross, on its haunch." - - ' - -"Wiiy. that's Small's old brindle," cried Mr. Babcock. "I know the mark as well as I know the nose on my face. She had balls on her horns, did she?" ''Yes, so Isaac said." . "And a kind of a hump on her back?"-' - 'A perfect dromedary," said Miss Letitia. "I noticed that myself. v -. "They were Small's cows, no doubt ' of it at all," said Mr. Babcock, rubbing hü Eandä. 'No sheep with them, hey 7" "Well, now I think of it there were sheep they ran away as eoon as they saw Isaac. Tes, certainly, there were sheep," said Miss Letitia. "I khew it they always go with the pows; and what do you want ot me r ; "It's to fix damages," said Misa . Letitia. "As I said before, women folks are no judges about such matt ars." - Mr. Babcock meditated a moment, and then said: "Well, I wouldn't take a cent less than $75, If I were you not a cent,' I' J "Seventv-five dollars 1 Isn't that a eood deal, Mr. Babcock? You know I don't wish. to be bard on the poor old man; all I want is fair compensation for the mischief done." "Seventy-five dollars is fair, ma'am--in fact, I might say, it's low. I wouldn't have had a herd of cattle and sheep, trampling through my premises in that way for a hundred.'' There's one thing I forgot to täte; the orchard Rate was open, or they couldn't have got in; that may make a difference.'' 'Not a bit not a bit.' You d a right to have your gate open, but Small's cows had no right to run loose. I hope Isaac 'drove them to the pound, didn't he?" .- -, ; "I heard him say he'd shut 'em up some where, and didn't mean to let 'em out till the owner calls for 'em. But, Mr. Babcock, what if he should refuse to pay for the d&m acres? I should hate to co to law about. ItJ? - He won't refuse; knd if he does, keep the critters tin ne win pay. äs vo iaw,' i guess he's had about enough of that. I am sure I thank vou for your advice,' said Miss Letitia, "and I mean to act upon It to the Terr letter." . Scarcely was he out ox sight, wnen Alias sb e a at LtHitia tent a summons for Ur. Small, which he obeyed as promptly as his neighbor had done. , , She made to him precisely the same state ment she had made to Mr. J3abcock, showed him the injured property, and asked him to fix the damages. It was remarkable before he did this, that he should ask the same question Mr, Bab cock had asked; namely, whether she had any suspicion to whom the animals belonged. "Well, one of them I observed had a ter rible crooked horn." "Precisely it's Babcock's heifer; I should know her among a thousand. She was black and white, wasn't she?'' J ""Well, now I think of it, she was; one seldom sees so clear a black and white on a cow." "To be sure. They're Babcock's animals fast enough. Well, let me see; what you want is just a fair estimate, I suppose?" "Certs inly." ""Well, I should say $00 was as low as he ought to be allowed to get off with." "Oh but I fear that it will seem as if I meant to take advantage. Suppose we call it gay seventy-five?'' "Ju!t as you please,-of course; but hanged if I'd lot him off for a cent less than a $100, if it were' my case.' V "And ü'he refuses to pay?" Ky.-Why, keep the animals until he comes around, that s all." "But there's one thing I neglected to men tion ovulate was standing open; that may alter the case." "Not at all; there's no law against keep in jour gate open; there is against stray animals.' "Very well; thank you for your advice," said Miss Letitia; and Mr.'.Small departed with as smiling a face as Mr. Babcock had worn. But at milking time that night he made a strange,discovery-7-old brindle was missing! At about thb same hour Mr. Babcock made a similar discovery; the black-and-white beifer was nowhere to be found I . . A horrible suspicion seized them both a 'Sttspfcion that they v would" not have made known to each other for the world. They waited till it was dark, and then Mr. Babcock stole around to MUs Letitia' arfV meekly asked leave to look at the ani niala who h&d ' committed the trespass. lie would have done it without asking leave, only that thrifty Miss Letitia always shut her barn doors at night. j . While he stood looking over into the pens -wh&re the cows -were confined, and trying to negotiate with Mis Letitia tor the release of ,the heifer, along came Mr Small in quest of "h-sbtindle. ' ' ' " ' J The two men stared at each other in . - iijc 4imj, then hung-their heads in con- fusion. . It was. useless to assert thai the damages were too high, for had they not fixed them themselves? . It was useless to plead that Miss Letitia was in a manner responsible iyr what had happened, on account of the open gate;' for had thoy not assured her that that circumstance did not'alter tbe'ease? It was useless to ny she had no right' to keep the cows in custody, for had they not coun selled her to do so? As to eoine to law afoul it, WOuld they not become the sport of the whole town? " 'lie that diggeth a pit, he himself shall fall into It " said Miss Letitia, who read what was passing in their minds as well as if they had spoken, for the light from Isaac's lantern fell full on their faces. "However, on one condition I will free the cows and forgive the debt." - What iÄhat?' Both" thought the ques tion, but did hot ask it. ; "The condition is that you promise to put a good new fence in place of the old one that separates your estates, dividing the cost between you, and that henceforth you will live together peacefully, so ; far as in you Jis. , Do you promise 1". , , , . - i l ? Yes, " muttered both,' in a voice scarcely audible,;; ' - : ' " '-Shake hands upon it, "then," "said Miss Letitia. They did so. A i "Now let th cows out," Isaac; it'a time they were milked," said she. And the two men went away driving their cows before them, and with a shame-faced air, greatly in contrast to the look of triumph with which they had before quitted her pi ence. .The fence was btdlt, and the strife ceased when the cause was removed; but it was long before Miss Letitia's part in the affair came to the public ear; for she hertelf main tained a strict silence concerning it, and she enjoined the same upon her man-servant, Isaac. - His Exact Age. ' Detroit Free Prees.J When Uncle Keuben Clay, an old darkey of, about seventy, winters,, dropped, in to a Oriswold street tobacco store a day :or two ago, And wa&gasked his, age, he promptly replied; ( .,-. 44 Wall, sab, I reckon I'ze about as nigh seventy y'ars ole as dey can make 'em.''

The old man scratched his head, looked over the figures and said: "Dat's kinder curus. Deold mancums in dar sum "whar?"

One of the curious products of this country is urn senate, sun-nmmea iamer wno aoes not love to read, and who, keeping his child ren within doors during te long evenings, tells them to "set and think." To their im patient inquiries, "what shall I do?" he in variably replies in a hard, discouraging tone, "Can't you set and think?" The children of that man are like to become sour, dry, bard and morose. - .Their minds become air slaked and lacking in spirit. One evening a little boy who had been sitting for an hour in the presence of his silent father,who had . - commanded him to think," , said, "Father what are you thlnklne of?"

As is well-known, Jackson was careless in dress, in gait, and when astride a horse he was just as apt to have his No. 9's dangling out of the stirrups as in them. A thought ful man, with oolong features, kindly cray eyes, somber in looks, with a mind never at rest, he appeared often in what may not in appropriately be termed "fits of abstraction," and apparently oblivious to everything pass ing around him, but at the whistle of minie ball, or the boom of a cannon, how his whole face lit up with expectancy I He was suddenly alive to "coming events." Of Jackson's riid discipline 1 will here put on record an instance. While a boy. 1 was coming out of the postoffice in Lexington, va one morning, ana as i came out a youth of seventeen summers passed in, clad in a black suit. I stopped for a minute on the pavement at the postoffice door, with my face toward the Virginia Military Insti tute, of which Jackson was then a professor. Jackson was comine up the street at the time, and only a few yards from the door. The cadet was in citizea's dress, and had "run the blockade'' to get a letter from "his girl," and had thus violated two rules come to town in citizen s dross, and without leave! He was coming out, unconsciously, into the "snare of the fowler;" but he chanced to spy Jackson within a few yards of the office, and bstantly sprang back, jumped over the counter, flew past the postmaster, and leaped out of the back window, cat style, on 'all fours." Jackson took in "tho situation" at a glance, for, as the cat's hoels were disappearing out of the back window, Jackson's stern counte nance darkened the door, and he cried 'out in a stentorian voice: 'I recognize you, sir I Go to the barrack and report yourself under arrest!" Many a mentor would have been blind to the escapade, would have tried not to see his pupil, would have "winked at it," but not so with Jackson; on the con trary, he quickened his pace and was an in terested spectator to the livoly movements of his pupil's heels. But it has been a mystery to me ever since, how in the world Jackson recognized that cadet by his No. 7 boots as his hoels were disappearing out of the window. When I saw Jackson again he lay dead on the field of Cbancellorsville. To show Jackson's liatlessncas on im portant occasions, I will record an incident. It is well known that stonewall" wa3 not a mere map fighter, or attacked the enemy on scientific principles. He made war as Claiborne Mason . made his (Jackson's) bridges, by intuitine knowledge and common-sense principles. And when many a Gennral was. planning a battle en maps, Jackson had fought and won them by the celerity of his movements. But to tbe point: On a certain night near the banks of the Bappahannock, a council of war was being held, at which, as a mat ter of course, General Kobert E.Lee pre sided. Jackson was the last to enter the Commander-in-Chiefs tent, sat downtcrossed his lank legs, folded his arms, and was lost in thought in a few minutes. The subject and manner of attack was elaborately dis cussed in all its details, for nearly an hour, on the maps and plan of battle, and a con clusion nearly arrived at, when General Lee wishing to hear Jackson's opinion he had not opened his mouth during the entire discussion asked him for his views; but, mirabile dictul . Jackson was sound asleep, and when roused 4ip, his answer to Lee's question was (without eomuch as opening his eye); 'Oh, run them into the river 1" His suggestion was adopted, and a bold, stand up attack was made, and the enemy was not only "run into the river," but clear across it.

"Wright, of Indiana, was a man of fine intellectual endowements, and more than ordinary culture, but his political success was mainly due to his social qualities and his religious reputation. , He was a prominent member ot the Methodist Church, the most numerous and influential body of Christians in the West, and he led oft in Sabbath school work especially. The fact that the Governor was a Democrat while the majority of his brethern were Whigs, was altogether in his favor, for it enabled him to divide the Whig vote while polling the full strength of his own party. While a candidate for Governor of the State a second time, he learned that a most influential Methodist brother in Wayne County, one Isaac Johnson, was using his .nfluence against him, and being not only a prominent man in the Church, but the head jf a large family connection, his opposition was a serious matter, hence the Governor resolved upon a determined effort to secure his vote and influence. The plan he adopted was as follows: At the clcie of a public meeting in Centreville, which he addressed, he ordered his horse and getting explicit directions for finding the residence of 'Squire Jehnson, he started off alone, and just at sun set reached the gate in front of the commodious farm house, which formed the terminal point of his pres ent journey. It was a beautiful summer afternoon, and 'Squire Johnson was sitting upon the steps of his veranda enjoying the breeze which was slightly cooled by the falling shadows of the fast approaching twi light. The Governor drew rein, and in quired if he could get entertainment for the night. The hospitable 'Squire replied in the affirmifiva nA invito him (a oliirlit aA walk in, while he would have his horse sent to the barn. Supper was over, but Mrs. Johnson and her two blooming daughters soon had a special repast prepared for their guest, wno nad informed them that ha was the Governor of the State soon after his arrival. The evening passed most pleasant ly, the Governor leading the conversation into religious channels, and growing eloquent in his report of the progress of Zion in va rious portion of . the State he had visited. He delighted his hearers with reminis cences of - famous Bishops and Elders, and other distinguished ministers whom he numbered among his personal friends, and who were little less than gods to those plain folks. The Governor on invitation, led the family in their evening Jevotion, and then, with a pleasant good night he retired to his couch in the preacher's chamber, for this house was known far and wide as the preacher's tavern, it being the regular stopping place of the Circuit-rider and Presiding Elder while visiting that part of the Lord's vineyard. , lie awoke next morning at an early hour, and after a sumptuous breakfast his horse was brought out and he prepared; to take his leave. No reference had been made to poli tics by any of the parties up to this hour, but on Squire Johnson's handing the Gov ernor his port-manteaux (saddle bags), he thrust his hands into one of the pockets, and flihing up a package ha onfoldea a Bible a copy of the Methodist book of Discipline, aada MethoeUst Hymn Book, saying as he laid them on the table, "These are documents I carry, Sister Johnson,' addressing the hostess. Replacing his books he shook hands with the different members of the family and took his departure. As he rode of) down the lane the whole family stoxxl looking after him until a turn in the road hid him from view, when the good wife, turning to her husband, said: "Isaac, Whig as you are, ' you must not vote agin that dear, good man. ' And Isaac did not vote against him. On the contrary he used hfi influence with his own relatives and the brethren with such effect that the Governor got a heavy majority m mat rrecuicw, wutre urnr years previously ne naa scarcely naa a dozen supporters. The Eye Might. A writer in an English publication says: "Tho sight in most persons begins to fail from forty to fifty years of age as is evidenc ed by an instinctive preference for large prim; a seat near tne winaow xor reading la selected; there is an effort to place the paper at a convenient distance from the eye, or to wru ifc bu as w KefcR 11 particular reflection of the light; next the finger begins to be placed undr the line read, and there is a winking of the eye as if to clear it,' or look ing away at some distant object to rest it, or tne fingers are pressed over the oloeed lids in the direction of the nose to remove the tears oaused by straining. "Favor the failing sight as much as poasi- oie. ljooKing mioa origm nre, especially a coal fire. Looking at molten iron will soon destroy the sight; reading in twilight is injurious to the eyes, as they are obliged to make great exertion. Reading or sewing with a side light injures the eyes, as both eyes should be exposed to an equal degree of light. The reason is, the sympathy be tween the eyes is so great that if the pupil of one is kept dilated by being partially in the shade.- the one that is most exposed can tract itself sufficiently for will be ultimately injured, to preserve their eyesight not:. con protection and Those who wish should observe the following rules, and preserve the gen er hi neaim Dy correct naDiis; 1. By sitting in such a position as will allow the light to fall obliquely over the shoulder on the page or sewing.' 4 '2. By not using the eye for such pur poses by any artificial light.' '3. By avoiding special use of the eyes in the morning before breakfast.' 'i. By resting them fcr a half minut or 60 while reading or 6ewing, or looking at small objects; and by looking at things at a distance, or up to the sky; relief is immedi ately felt by 0 doing. M '5. Never pick any collected matter from the eyelashes or corners of the eyes with tbe finger nails; rather moisten it with with the saliva and rub it away with the ball of the finger. '6. Frequently pass the ball of the finger over the closed eyelids, toward the nose; this carries off an excess of water in the nose itself by means of the little canal which leads' into the nostril from each inner corner of the eye, this canal having a tendency to close up in consequence of .thelslight Inflam- mauon wnicn auenas weakness ot eyes 7. üeep tue feet always dry and warm. so as to draw any excess of blood from the other end of the body.' . " 'S. lhe moment the eyes feel tired, the very moment you are conscious of an effort to read or sew, lay aside the book or needle, and take a walk for an hour, or employ yourself in some active exercise not requir ing the close use of the eyes.' " Smile Brethren, 8mlle. Baptist Weekly. Rev. Dr. Deems told the following story to his Sunday-school: As a lady and her little girl were passing out of the church door the child bade good-bye to a very poorly dressed little girl. "How did you come to know her?" inquired the surprised ii - i momer. -1 ny you see, mamma, 6ne came into Sunday-school alone and I made, a place for her on my seat, and I smiled and she smiled and then we were acquainted." It is the partot the child who is already in to make room and smile, and thus begin the acquaintance. It would be a good rule for Srown-up people in church. If you are in rst and a stranger enters make room for him and smile, and then he will smile and you will be acquainted. Mr. Bartlett and the Baroness. London Globe. It is now generally understood among the Baroness Burdett-Coutts' friends and near relations that she has quite resolved to carry out her intention of marrying Mr. Ashmead Bartlett, but with the proviso that the settlements shall be all on her own side, and her money (such as remains to her) safely tied up. It is also believed that the marriage will not take place till all legal difficulties with regard to the Duchess of St. Albans' will are cleared up. SOCIETY DIBECTORY. Masonic GlTHSKMAHB CoMM AHDKST.
