like Pet-sr and Mercy Lane.
Being through tlie I'oreit, tall, dense,
monarrhial, scan encroached on by
the new settlement, the way wa a lone
as long. But the girl and hoy bad stl
dom travelled it afoot, never without a
companion. Their father owned a ver
itable . pioneer team ; a horse fearlej.
fleet and strong; a sleigh that ponied
to enjoy rough linage and could triumph
over all oroinary-necidMJta; besides a
plentiful supply of wolf-skin robes,
which Mr. Lnuvi hud firat seen with
hungry, nowliug bodies inside them.
With these agreeable facilities, Peter
and Mercy were every morning con
veyed to the little log school-house, and
every evening back to the bright heartb-
toue and warm, eneery Htaiies 01 notne. i
One day the father ahd mother went
to town, as it was called; the town con- !
gistiug of a log tavern and store, and
surrounding this nucleus of civilization,
half a score or ho of dwellings, not
widely distinguished by their architec
ture from a beaver village. On this
oiasiou of the parents going to town,
Peter and Mercy were taken along to
school and there sat down with the in
junction it was a sad pity they did not
better heed namely, to get dismissed
in good time and go home and stay with
Hugb, th hired man ; because, as their
father distinctly told them, it was not
certain that he and their mother would
return until quite into the evening.
Notwithstanding, early in the after
noon, with their eyes on their books
but their thoughts out of doors, tins
children of 31r. Lane began to listen
and every now and then to fancy they
could hear the creaking of sleigh run
ners on the snow ; when they would in
stinctively glance up at the pegs from
which hang their cloaks and comforters,
in the momentary anticipation of hur
rying the garments on and beginning
the ride home, snuggled at their parent's
And: though so often mistaken, they
continued to expect the welcome sound
of "whoa. Bill." at the schoolhonse
door, and to encourage each other's
hopes, by exchanging the least bits of
smiles across tne nine room.
' It was not that they would mind walk
liisr for once, and fear of danger by day
light there was none; but, the thought
of their mother's company, so mucn
enjoyed bv them in the morning, gave
unusual zest to the prospect of riding;
besides, their dear mother would be
wfln to buv something in town espec
ially for them, which to were eager
to obtain possession of : at the earliest
moment. Ho the children lingered and
longed until at length the school was
From four o'clock until dark is not
lone in winter. The first half the dis
tance Mercv and Peter traversed quick
ly, on the : horse-sled of a neighbor,
who had come to take home nis own
children and the schoolmistress; at the
turn of the road they were lelt to pro
ceed by themselves on loot..
Then, late as it was, they began to loi
ter, walkinar backward or looking expect-
uiiriv over their shoulders, and saying
the. while that their father and mother
could not be far behind.
It was about the beginningof March
The weather had been mild and pleas
ant for man v da vs; the deep snow had
xettled away from the trunks of the trees
and become brittle . and porous. The
road was- smoothly trodden, as it had
been all winter.
Coming before long to a hut used by
wood-cutters earlier in the season, the
children- halted under the low eaves
fringed with icicles, though some had
fallen and nierced the snow, or nasnea
themselves in pieces on the strip of black
and frozen soil where the children's feet
were Dlaced. They agreed that this was
a most comfortable position in which to
wait the sueedv arrival of their parents
But their parents came not; and the
first thins that Mercv and Peter knew
the sun had dropped 'behind the hill and
disappeared, leaving only a gray and
deepening twilight with the distant sky
above, wnere me nrsi star vi eveuiug
was trying to light its little beacon, aud
below and far around, the evenly-spread
snow and naked forest trees.
The children turned toward each
other, the sister's blue eyes and the
brother's; black ones meeting in a star
tled gaze. They all at oncce felt the
lonely situation and wondered what they
were to do. Little Peter straightened
himself bravely, proposing to start for
home and hurry -as fast as they could;
and lie strode- into the road, pulling up
his red and white tippet about his ears.
But Mercy, looking along the road and
observing how quickly--it was lost In
..loom, felt -secretly' afraid and would
much have preferred going in the direc
tion from which their parents were to
come. She kissed her brother's cheek
which was cold almost as snow ; tears
trembled on her eyelashes; she told him
they could not go on, it was too late, and
thev would not be Kept-waiting' long
and so led him back to their standing-
til ace outside the hut.
Duskier - fell the curtain of night.
Still, and strange, and awful appeared
everything about them. Mercy was half
in doubt where they were, dreamily
ouestioninsr wit herself how it could
have happened that she and her brother
should be in the woods atone at mat
time of the evening. And when her
thoughts - came back to her like a flash
and she -recollected just the : truth, the
hour or two since scnooi was out seemeu
a. whole long day.
A sound in -the distance caught Peter1
ear. lie listened, then turning his eyes.
saw that his sister was listening too. It
was bv no- means tin sound for which
thev had strained their hearing in vain
Th hpftt; that Mercv honed and a eood
hope indeed, only dispelled in a moment
was that the hired man was coming
to meet them, halloing to the forest
echoes for company's sake. Theyjjhad
heard the howling of wolves, though
not man v times; the sounds, even when
they were safe at home, had caused their
hair to stand on end. The indescribable
resonance now swelling on the air they
knew to be nothing less. ' Need ' I say
the children were terribly irigntenea r
For a few minutes they clung fast to
each other, doing . nothing but cry,
Then like the pioneer children they
wre. tnev toot courage, and very sen-
si bl v set about trying ; to escape the
dreadful fate which threatened. They
went- into the hot, and could they have
shut the door, might have been compar
atively seeure. as there were no win
dows: but the door having stood open
was banked with - snow,- which bad
thawed and irozeu at the base into
layer of solid ice. The poor children
tugged at it with all their little strength
nnt the door was immovable.
findings there was no safety within
rhev next bethought them to get upon
the roof; which,, by the aid of a pole
they -found in the hut, was shortly et
tected. The roof sloped all one way,
toward the 'south, -and was not steep!
they pushed off the end of the pole and
cut down on their feet in the midst of
the shallow, crunching snow.
All was again silent, all save the fear
ful howling, nowlieard more distinctly,
in token that the wolf-pack was drawing
nearer.--' Mercy and her brother spoke
not a word, only crept, siiuutieriug, still
closer to each other. The height that
thev had been at such pains to gain
appeared quite insufficient; they doubted
whether the dreadful beasts would not
make the leap at the first trial. L'nless
their parents sliolild conic directly, there
was little hopes for tnera.
They had occupied their 'position not
many mtuutes, wnen a plunging iresia
in the Know drew their attention to the
rear of the hut. A moment s stillness
followed; Mercy nogan to think it
might have been only a dead bough
that had fallen to the ground.
Presently, while their eyes were fixed
I11 the new direction, out of the dark
ness into the dusk,' came with slouching
but stealthy gait, a creature resembling
i hir are brown dog. The children-who
hud never seen a living wolf, and could
not see this plainly, hopod it was a dog.

How to Start ax AqriBax. Oneot
he most attractive of sitting-room or
naments is an aquarium. They need
not necessarily tie expensive, as common
window glass set in a wooden frame will
snfhec, though .one with an iron frame
will be !etter. Of course it must be
made water, tight. - When Hi in is done
put in rain or river water probably any
soft water will answer i then get a piece
of rock large enough to come nearly to
the top and. the more holes, aud cavities
and projections it has the better it will
suit the fish. Put this in the middle, and
then cover the bottom with clean sand
or gravel two inches deep or more. You
arc ready then for aquatic plants, such
as American Starwort, Mermaid-weed,
alia, Eelgrass, etc. When these have
been planted three or four days it will be
ready for the fish. Minnows, water
newts, perch, mussels, tadpoles, snails,
and a few gold fish, are commonly used.
Miails are said to keep Doth the water and
the grass clean. Some other kinds will
do equally well, but pike and trout are
objectionable on account of a weakness
for eating up the other member! of the
family. Care must be used so as not to
overstock the vessel, or all will die.
With a proper proportion of plants aud
fish the water will remain pure for a
number of weeks. When it has stood
for some time it can be improved by dip
ping out, and pouring back from a little
eiglit. xne nsn may ne ted Dread
rumbs and minute bits of meat, but

moved, or it will taint the water. Coun
Fctckitt axp Phosphorus. We will
assure sensitive-minded people in speak-
g of futurity aud phosphorus, we have
no idea of suggesting a disquisition con
cerning futurity and brimstone. Sul
phur and phosphorus are very different
n their nature and adaptation tnougn
they are sometimes made to act as sub
stitutes for each other; and the futurity
of which we shall speak does not extend
beyond earthlv limitations.
Much has been said and written or late
years concerning the exhaustion of the
world's supply ot coal. Men nave al
ready used up, practically, their fuel
supply furnished : by nature above
ground, but. as if forseeiug what fools
men would make ot tnemseives in con
suming their forests without providing
tor new growths, nature quietly secre
ted another source of supply under
ground, and men call it coal. Tiiis
source or supply it is impossible lor man
to recreate. He has nevertheless
mined it and burned it, and wasted it in
smoke, by the tens of millions of tons,
just as though those subterranean forests
could never be exhausted, fccience comes
along, and with an outcry of alarm an
nounces that this thing must stop, or our
posterity will have nothing left for fuel
wherewith to Don tne tea-ketue.
Xow, it so happens that while Science
is a croaker and an alarmist, Philosophy
a soother and a comforter, bo, at this
outcry of alarm. Philosophy very con
soiingiy assures us tnat tne supply win
outlast our time, and thereby enable us
to bear the burdens of posterity very
cahnlv. Moreover, Philosophy coolly
demands of Science that it is her busi
ness to be looking about to provide a
substitute for coal, as she has done for
wood, m order to meet the demands of
this new exigency. Philosophy some
What superciliously says to science
The coming generations must have
heat; heat is merely a 'mode of motion ;'
and it is your business to find out some
new method of producing the requisite
motion tor evolving the requisite heat.
And there, as between the two, thesub-
iect drops, and the question rests.
uut, besides using up tne eartn's sup
plies of fuel, men are with equal reck
lessness using up the earth's supply of
phosphorus. Like coal and wood, the
quantity ot phosphorus allotted to this
distinguished member of the solar sys
tem is limited, uur planet lias received
its full rations of both fuel and phospho
rus, if men will persist in the wasteful
use of those rations till thev are ex
hausted, they can draw no more. The
laws of Nature's commissariat allow of
no commutation in that regard. Once
exhausted, phosphorus, like coal, can not
be recreated; nor can any other sud
stance supply its place.
Well, then, can't we do without it?
Kot very well. We might dispense with
lucifer matches, but how abont our
bones? Ji very well grown man requires
at least lour pounds ot pnospnates,
merely to built up Ins bony frame-work
and give him suitable solidity of spine
to enable him to become even a politi
cian. Without the phosphates, therefore
we could have neither men nor animals
above the grade of the cartilaginous.
Moreover, the earth, if deprived of her
favorite phosphates, refuses to yield
plants, or the seed of plants, useful to
man. It is from the phosphates thus
deiived that : the bony structure of the
whole animal creation is manufactured.
Now, think of the millions of tons, by
millions of millions multiplied, that have
been drawn from the original : stock of
the earth's phosphorous tor building up
the animal universe, and then consider
how many of those infinite millions of
tons have been wasted and lost in the
uses of men, and we can no longer won
der at the waste places ot the Uid orld
Then we will understand whv the vast
regions of Asia Minor, once fruitful and
populous, are now barren ; why portions
of Sicily. Palestine, Arabia, and. the
plains of Babylon, once so fertile, are
become deserts. Those lands have been
robbed of their precious phosphates ;
their phosphorus is exhausted.
Certainly, vast amounts ot the phos
phorus thus taken has been returned
through various media to the . earth
whence it came, uut how infinite are
the quantities we have deposited iu the
grave. This may be called returning
the phospbotes to the earth ; but not
in any practical or beneficial sense. The
bones, lying undisturbed, retain all the
phosphates. It is only the organic mat
ters that are decomposed in the grave
the phosphates remain and are not redis
tributed through the soil to become
again elements of fertility. That dis
tinguished chemist, Jjleoig, tells us that
" the only loss ot elements we are un
able to prevent, is of the phostatcs, is so
tar as those, in accordance with the cus
toms of modern nations, are deposited
in the grave."
It is not probable that men will aban
don the custom: of deep-earth burial
certainly not for the purpose of making
mineral manure of the bones of their
ancestors. Kor does anybody wish that
they would, : But it is manifest ttiat the
growing necessities of men will compel
them to adopt some measure of rational
economy in the use of sewerage; so that,
instead of draining our lands of their
precious- phosphates, and wasting them
in our rivers and the sea, they may be
returned to the soil to supply" the phos
phorus lor coming generations through
all the cycles of time.
History assures us that races of men
m their ruuu condition were ever stal
wart and brave. As civilization came
there also came luxury and effeminacy,
x ue same races ceased to oe either stal
wart or brave, feo the barbarian has
ever prevailed over the refined and lux
urious. But let us question Philosophy
to know if History is correct iu her de-
duetiou that refinement necessarily en
feebles nieu. Was it not a diflcieue-y of
phosphorus, rather than an excess of re
finement, that caused the deterioration
in manhood V Could the barbarian con
qner because he was ignorant? No, but
because they were strong, and they were
strong because they were the sous of a
sou not yet rooued ot its phosphates
The gigantic Gaul made the civilized
Komaii tremble; now the descendant of
that gigantic Gaul boasts of being an
aueragc giant ot only tour feet six! so
every where, man's stature and strength

less we learn to preserve this our futur
is dark and desperate. A judicious sys
tem of agriculture must soon be de
manded that will return to the soil the
waste of cities, or our posterity will do-

pork, or ir you have not this, lard or
nice beef drippings will do; but pork is
preferable. When th3 slices are fried
brown, take them out, dip the pieces of
fish in a plate of line Indian meal, and
lay, them "into . a spider.. Yry them

with the pork into a hot dish. Pour a
little water into the spider, boil it up.
dredge in browned flour, and pour the
whole over the nsn.
To boil Corned Beef. Wash it thor
oughly, and put into a pot that will hold
plenty ot water. Ihe water should be
hot; the same care is necessary in skim
ming it as for fresh meat. - It is not too
much to allow halt an hour tor every
pound of meat after it has begun to boil.
The' goodness of corned beef depends
much on its being boiled gently and
long. If it is to be eaten cold, lay it,
wnen ooiiea, into a coarse earthen dish,
or pan, and over it a piece of board the
size of the meat. Upon this put a clean
stone, or a couple of flat-irons, or some
other heavy weight. : Salt meat is very
much improved Dy being pressed.
To Bleach Linseed Oil. Put iu a glass
jar some bona fide new linseed oil (from
the oil pressing works not the shoos)
pressed from fine Eastern seed, iu the
sunlight on the top of the house with a
piece of sheet lead (scraped bright) in
serted part in the oil and part in the at
mosphere 01 the jar. Cover over with
glass the mouthy so as to admit air and
light freely to circulate, but not the rain
to enter. In a few weeks the oil bleaches
and to the lead between wind and water,
a mass of mucus attaches itself, which is

lead, rerscraping, and 'again inserting
until the oil becomes of the lightest tint.
Hot Pudding Sauce. To four larsre
spoomms oi roiiea, ciean Drown sugar,
put two of butter, and stir it together in

Pour it into a sauce tureen, and - grate
nutmeg over me top. xne advantage of
stirring the butter and sugar; together
before melting it, is, that it produces a
thick white foam upon . the top. The
reason for stirring it steadily while on
the coals, is, that it would otherwise" be

Peeling peacftes.-Somebody give.the
following method for pealing peaches
ani tomatoes; "io remove the skin
from peaches. Every one knows there
is a great loss ot pulp in pearing
peacnes witn a kinte, to ohvlate
which the following has been suggested
for- treating them: Make lye as strong
as possioie witu wooa asnes and soft
water. . Fill a kettle with the lye, and
when boiling rapidly drop in twelve or
niteen peacnes, and take out immedi
ately and immerse them in a pail of cold
water, rake one m yonr hand and the
rind will slip off entirely.' leavine a
round, beautiful yellow ball; throw it
immediately into another pall of water,
aud so proceed until all are done. This
process will not injure the flavor of the
finest peach, and, once tried, the old-
fashioned way of peeling with a knife
win not oe agai-i adopted. , it the lye is
not strong enough, put into the kcttltt
two dippers full of clean wood ashes.
This is a good way of ridding small on
ions ot their jackets preparatory to pick
ling them ; also for peeling tomatoes."
