I dou't 6oe it anywhere.' Vvhal do you want of it?" askoi Mrs. poopcuJyke, lluttering up to protect her trinkets, and try to gaio a little time. '1 want to open some sardines with it,' retorted Mr. Spoopendyke, ban rtoix.ijr the drawer ami hunting through the work-basket. 'Think 1 want to comb my hair with it? Im agine 1 wanted to write a letter with it? "Well, I don't. 1 want some sardines. What have you done with it?' . 'You might take your big knifo,' recommended Mrs. Spooixjndyke. 'The large blade is just the thing for that, you know.' Mr. Spoopendyko seized the knife and bored away at one corner of the box, while his wife looked on with con siderable distress. Handn't you bettor put a paper un der the box? You'll get the oil all over the table-cloth,' suggested Mrs. .Spoopendyke. 'No, I won't either,' said Mr. .Spoop endyke, as the knife plunged through the box. and the oil spattered. 'Serve you right if 1 did,' he continued, plow ing away at the tin, while the grease flew in all directions. 'It will teach you to put the can opener where you could find it. What kind of house keeping do you call this, anyhow?' he yelled, as the blade slipped out and closed up on his fingers. 'Did you hurt yourself, dear?' asked Mrs. Spoopendyke, anxiously. 'No, I didn't hurt myself!' grinned Mr. Spoopendyke. 'The dog-gasted knife struck a bone, or 1 would have beeu dead with agony an kjonr ago. Give me some ether!' lie howled. 'Fetch me some chloroform! S'pose I'm going to saw at this box atiy more without an esthetic? Got an idea 'Ira going to chop off a couple of dozen fingers without something to deaden the pain? Whore's the luughing gas? (Hve me some laughing gas while I extract these measly old fish,' and Mr. Spoopendyke pranced around the room, and then jabbed the knife into she box again, and ripped away as though ho wa3 run by steam. 'No use !.o hide away from me!' he yelled, hacking away at the box with all his might. '1 know you're in there, and there can't bo any dod-gasted sardine that ever was built get away from me. Come out, I tell ye!' and he seized a 5sh by the tail and slung him across the room. 'You're transacting business with Spoopendyko now!' aiuf he clawed out a handful of mashed sardines and s'apped them down on a plate. 'Won't you spoil 'em, dear?' asked Mrs. Spoopendyke, dodging the flying heads and tails. 'They won't be very good if you open them that way.' 'Oh, won't they?' howled Mr. Spoo pendpke. 'If you don't like 'em that way, what'd you ask for them for? Maybe you want to take them out in a baby carriage. P'raps you've got an idea I ought to climb under 'em and !(ft'eni;out. Maybe you want me to git into, that box with a boat and take them out with a seine? Well, I won't, I tell ye! . Give me the tongs; I want fcbat; fjsh at the bottom. Where's the tongs? Gone to get married to the n-opener, haven't they?' and Mr. Hpoopendyke grabbed another fish, and fired him into the grate. 'Be patient, my dear,' said Mrs. Spoopendyke, soothingly. 'Make the opening a little wider, and they'll come out.' . 'Ain't I patient?' shouted Mr. Spoo jiendyke. -P'raps you want me to ning to 'em, '1 wish I was an angel, and with the ' dod-gast the fish! Come out of that!' and with a wrench Mr. Spoopendyke hauled off the top sud disclosed the mangled remains of his enemies. 'Now, give me a lemon,' and he eyed the repast with anything hut contentment. 'Stir around and 'jt me a lemon; quick, now.' 'Upon my word, my dear, I don't relieve there's a lemon in the house,' .itammered Mrs. Spoopendyke. ! had one ' 'Oh, you had one!'. proclaimed Mr. Hpoopendyke, 'only you're just out. If you'd beeu brought up right, you'd wly need an awning and a family on tho top floor to be a grocery shop. S'pose I'm going to eat these sardines :iw? Think I'm going to swallow Anno fish alive? Gimme something to put on 'ein, will ye?' 'What would you like, my dear?' queried Mrs. Spoopendyke. 'Ink, dod-gast it! Fetch me some jneasly ink! Got any nails? Can't you find some laudnum somewhere?' -ind Mr. Spoopendyke projected him aelf into the closet and pranced out with a bottle or arnica. 'There!' lis Itowlcd, as he dashod the contonts over tho sardines, 'there's vour fish all ready for you, and the next time you want me to open the things, you'll have iajjfon, will ye.' i ind a can-opener, wont ye?' and Mr. Spoependyko flopped into his easy chair and picked up the paper. 'Don't you want some of the fish?' asked Mrs. Spoopendyko, after a long pause. 'No, "I don't!' growled Mr. Spoo sendyke. 'But this is a fresh box,' said Mrs. Spoopendyke, displaying tho sardines ;;n neat layers. 'How'd you get it open?' demanded Mr. Spoopendyke. 'With -the can-opener,' replied his wife. 'I found it in your tool-hax, litre you put it to sharpen ;U" Myb 1 put thj lemon in ihera U sharpen that, too,' grunted Mr. Spoop rn.iyke, pegging wy at the box and looking up with bis mouth full, but rocognizing tho taste f vinegar he uiad otne remarks about some -ople ctMiug only a bundle and a cork to bo a forttiuatu. jug. and laving finisked the lot. he demunded why bis wife handn't a.-ked for them if she wanted sonit. and went to lied with some inco herent observations on the alwurJity of folks sitting around like martyrs with fish within reach. THE END OF THE WORLD. A Man nho Wishes lobe in at the Grand Uind-lp. IVlrtfutaUty Kch-rpiiar.) Say, what is there in this talk about Old Mother What-you-call-her, the conjugation of the planets, and the world oomin' to an end this year?' asked a grizzled old 49er, stopping Professer Legate as he was turning tho corner of C and Union streets with a big teloscopo under his left arm. 'Do you think the old world is going to pass in her checks?' ,W(:1I said tho Professor, 'we will certainly have during this year some remarkable movements in the princi pal planets.' 'Anything liable to bust loose very soon?' 'Beforo long. Let me see at nine o clocK ou tne nignt ot April 21, Saturn will be in conjunction with the sun. 'Good for a starter! What next?' 'At seven o'clock the next morning. Saturn and Jupiter will be in conjunc tion.' 'Bully! That's business!' At nine o'clock that morning Jupi ter will come into conjunction with the sun. 'Hurrah! All getting their work on the sun. I can see Old Sol begin ning to get shaky on his pins. What next?' 'On the '2d of May, Venus comes in to conjunction with the sun." 'Glory! The old gal gets 111 her lick on the sun, too. It's a-gettin' hot now. Hit him again, old gal. 'On the 11th of Mav, Neptune will be in conjunction with tho sun.' 'Tip-top; old Nep. and all 01 em go ing square at the sun, like so many but ting billy-goats. I'll live to see it yet. Who goes at him next?' 'On the 14th oi May, -Mercury comes into conjunction with tho sun, and U ranus will bo at the right angles. 'My what will be at right angles? 'Uranus.' 'Thunder! Then I'll be in at the grand bust-up, sure. Is that all''' 'Those will be tne principal occur rences. 'And quite sufficient, too. They'll fetch the old craft they'll knock the 14 world off her pins. I'm much obliged, professor. I'm ready to peg out any minute if I can see tho big show see the old world blow up in a blaze of glory, like a big firework. Do you know I've allers wanted to see this very business. Why, it will pay me for all the misery I've had in livin' up to dato. I'll be up bright and early on the morning of the 14th of May, to see old Merkry git in tho last at the sun and bust up all creatiou. I'm really much obliged, and I'll drink with, yer, professor, ef you've got a slick quarter about yer clothes if you have itt then we'll soak yer old telescope. ' Sol. Millar, of the Troy (Kansas) Chief, explains it in the following: 'There are several causes for the de cay of the country press. The greatest is the superior faculties and the im mense subscription lists of tho large city weeklies, by which large sheets, containing vast amounts of leading matter, are sent for 1 and $1 50 a year; and this is aided bv the penu- nousness and want of consideration of subscribers to county papers. Not a day passes but the publisher of the county paper is badgered and impor tuned to let his paper go for SI or $1 50 a year, because suck and such big city papers, containing three or four times as much reading, is sent for that price. I hose subscribers do not consider that tho country publisher has to depend solely upon his earnings from week to week, while the city pa per, owned by wealthy stock companies, printed bv steam, and possessing all the best advantages, cfiii afford tho pa per, all the matter in which has al ready been paid for in a daily paper, at a very low figure. . The same over whelming power of capital has crushed out the shoemaker, and other trades. It is crushing out the farmer in Tmi gland and Ireland, and will do it here in course of time. The farmer who attempts to beat down the prices of a country publisher, does not reilect that the same thing is last coming Home to him. He is already helpless in the matter of transportation. The thing that every citizen of a county is most deeply interested in, is tho affairs of his own county. The cheap city paper gives him nothing of this, but the only place to find it is in the county paper. If they break down the county paper by forcing into com petition with the city papers, wheso matter has been printed over and over, and paid for several times beforo it goes into tho weekly, how are they to keep informed upon their home affairs?'

Sweet peas in hanging baskets sus pended in the window are very beauti ful objects. Their trailing stems and bright foliage fall very gracefully on all sides, and are of themselves very pretty, and when tho (lowers appear tho effect is elegant. To have them bloom in summer and fall, the seed should be sown now in pots, and then be placed in a warm window or a fram. A correspondent in (iunlcnimj Illus trated recommends sowing in four inch pots about twenty peas in each pot. V hen the voting seedings are well up, and require more room they must be transferred to the baskets, three or more pots in each, according to the size of tho basket, which should be lined with green moss. Light rich soil is necessary. While the peas are growing, liquid manuro should be freely used, and the baskets should be hung near the glass. This will stimu late growth and early bloom. The variety of color and the sweet odor of the flowers make them desirable. Among the most desirable varieties are the painted lady, violet queen, (Japt. Clark, tricolor, light blue and purple, black purple, Btriped and in vincible scarlet. How a Snake Moves. A snake when on the ground moves often with considerable rapidity. The head is slightly raised, and the body and tail progress by means of the peculiar grasping power of the skin and ribs of the underneath parst, which enables conse cutive contraction and elongation to oc cur. The movement is more or less flat with the earth, and the snake never coils upward, as is often figured in old and new paintings and engravings. It can erect its head and-much of the neck and foro part of the body, and this is also done when the creature is in horizontal coils, and quiescent. On moving up a stone or tree the head, neck and much of of the body may be placed against the more or less vertical object, nd a small protion only of the body may be left on the ground, but in this position the snake is liable to fall sideways. On moving up a tree they do not coil themselves round and round it like a rope, but they may do this when still. It is wonderful how snakes move along and between boughs, and, taking a turn round one with their tail end, swing and look for food, and also how they will make themselves up into a bunch on a fork of a tree, and remains there without falling. They swim in an undulating manner, but the body is wriggled on tho same plane as the sur face of the water, and not at right an gles to it, but in rushing at their prey, both in the water and on land, there is more or less upward or downward bend ing of part of the body, and a rapid thrust of the head forward, .

An Indian Boy's Love Letter. A love-letter picked up on the floor of a school with Hampton's views on co education need not inevitably shock even pedagogic sensibilities. Written in unknown tongue, however, with only the names to betray it, a translation by the private interpreter seemed only a proper precaution. If I confide it to the gentle reader, the Indian lovers will be neither the worse nor the wiser, while some others may find in it valuable sug gestions for similar correspondence. "Norma I, School, February 3, 1879. "Miss : I said I like you, and I want to give you a letter. Whenever I give you letter, I want you answer to me soon. That's all I want, and I will ans wer to you soon after. When you give me letter, it raises me up. It makes me heart-glad, sktcr-in-lair. When I talk, I am not saying anything foolish.
