IIai.locE's "Discarded."
The wing ofmy spirit is broken.
My day star of hope lias declined;
For a inouih not a word have I spoken
That's eiihcr poliie or refined.
Wy mind's like the sky in had weather.
When ini.-i clouds around us are curled ,
And, viewing myself altogether,
I'm the veriest wretch in the world!
1 wander annul like a
I spend half my lime in the street ;
My conduct's improper and flagrant,
I quarrel with all that I meet.
My dress, too, is wholly neglected,
My hat I pull over my brow,
And I look like a fellow suspected
Of wishing to kick up a row.
In vain I've endeavored to borrow
From friends oine material aid,
For my landlady views me With sorrow,
When she thinks of the bill that's un
paid. Abroad my acquaintances flout me,
The htdies cry, 'Bless us, look there ?
And the little boy cluster around me,
As .sensible citizens stare.
One says He's a victim to Cupid j
Another, his conduct is bid
A third, He is awfully Stupid j
A fourth! lie is net fee lv mad !
And then I am watched like a bandit, !
Mankind with me all are at strife ;
By Heaven, no longer will I stent! i',
But quick put an end lo'niy life !
I've thought of the meant yet I shudder j
At dagger, at ratsbane, nr rope!
At drawing with lancet inv blood, or
At a razor without any snap
Suppose I should fill in a duel.
And ihus leave the world with eclat !
But to ibe with a bullet is cruel
Beside, 'twould be breaking the law !
Yet one way remains: In the river
I'll fly from the (loadings of care;
But drown! oh! lite thought makes me
A terrible death, I declare ! shiver; i
Ah. no! I'll once more see my Kitty,
And parry her cruel disdain
Beseech her to take me in pity,
And never dismiss me again.

Railroad. New York :
"As the train came in sight of a cover
ed bridge, one mile north of Shushan, :
the engineer saw a man on the top of the
bridge, motioning for him to slop; he
immediately reversed his engine with a ',
full throttle, ami whistled on the brakes;
by ihe time the engine got to the farther
end of the bridge, ihe train came to a dead
stop, and the bridge then went down to
right, cairying the train with it. The ;
bridge was about 120 feel long and cross- j
ed the Battenkillj it was some five feet ;
from the water, and the water is now
from four to six feet deep. The train
consisted of engine, baggagec r ami oi e
paesenf er car. The train and bridge lay :
'promiscuously' about llio liver, both be
ini a mass of ruinr.
There were about thirty passengers on
board. The bridge was undergoing re
paits, and there was one of the wntkmen
on top of the btidgc the other men
were on or somewhere abotH the bridge,
When the train struck the bridge the i n
gineer ane fireman saw that ii WuJ going
down with litem , they dropped down
against the boiler, and so Wi III down with
ihe engine and bridge. The mail agent
tried to open the door, but could not, so
the went down, The baggageman and
brakesman Went down the pltnfnrm, aud
thought there was no use in jumping as
il was sine death any way. The passen
gers and men got out through the rubbish
and fragments, some nret and considera
bly frightened. No one was killed or
mortally wounded. The man on the lop
of the bridge went down with il and was
severely injured. Tito expressman had
his head eut badly, and one passenger re
ccivetl some flesh wounds in the face,
and one hand was considerably injured.
Seveial other passengers' received shgbi
injuries. The cause of ihe accident was
ihe carelessness of ihe men who hud
charge of the repairs ot the bridge. They
kail removed a bolt from the bridge, and
had omitted to put oul any signals to stop
the trains,

And over our friend's large honest face
stole a look of quiet drollery and amused
recollection, which roused our curiosity. ,
'Well, you see,' said he, in reply In au
other question, 'It was about twenty j
years ago, when I was studying law, and
mv brother was a medical student, that!
we both fancied we had a wonderful tal-1

er. who had very strict notions as to the
value of time; and to make him think us
usefully employed, I had quantities of
law books heaped up. and John had a
skul and all sorts of bones scattered about.
We knew thai Uj) lit our 'study,' no one
could hear us but Betsy, the housekeep
er, and as she was our old nurse, we fell
sure she would keep our secret. One ;
morning, after we had been wbiling the !
long night linurs away with out music,
to our own mutual delight, wecamedown
late to break fast, looking, I suppose, some- j
what unrefreshed.
'You must not study loo hard, boys,'
said our father considerately.

Just then, Retsy appeared at the door,
and looked mysteriously at my mother.
Yes, what is it V said mother surprised
at Betsy's excited manner. -What is it
Wtll, ma'am, I wish to say, ma'am'
Betsy always spoke in that short nipping j
way, when she was called worked up, j
'I must leave yon, ma'am.'
'Leave me ! why ?' asked mother.
Yes, ma'am, ii's twenty-five years that
I've been with you, ma'am and it is the j
boys at last, ma'am. I can't stand it and '
I ain'l going to. It's not Christian-like, j
ma'am. '
'What have the boys been doing?, ask-'
cd mother.
It's Mr John, ma'am, and sometimes
I think Mr. Tom helps him. He's got

nor the heathens, I've stood it for more
nor a week. I didn't get a wink of sleep j
last night, and what that poor creator went
through was dreadful. I know they say
such things must be don by doctors, but 1 j
ain't going to stay where it is, and I nev

And here Betsy gave my brother a look

The art of milking well not latight

! milker obtains at least a quart more from
: the smic cow than a poor milker.
The first lesson to he inunlit lo young.
; people is gentleness end kindness to the
1 cows, They never need be tteated harsh
, ly in case the business is properly com- j
menced. Cows thai have 'been caressed
and uniformly well treated,
are fond of
haviiifl the mill; drawn fiom the udd'tr at
the regular time of milkintr, for it gives
them relief from ihe distensions of the
milk duct.
Lei young people he put to milking
the farrow cows first, or such as an: Bonn
dried and then the loss from bad milking
will be less injurious. The hand should
extend to ihe extremity of the teals, for
ihe milk is then drawn easiei.
Young people should he taught (o milk
as fasi as possible. More milk is always
obtained by a rapid milker than a slow
one. Thev should therefore be taught to
Lhiuk of nothing else w
milking, and
conversation be permitted in the milk

as she sometimes will, merrly lo change
position, she will not be likely lo j.ui
it into ihe milk pail.
In case of a disposition to kick or rath
cr to raise her foot on account of pain ac
cafioned by sorenrs of the teats, ihe nearer
the milker sits to her and the harder he
presses his left arm against her leg the
less ri-k will he run of kping injured.
