Price of a Soul.
V - ' It was a Kentucky home, aud
the abode of wealth and plenty.
The iovof trffchome was an only
daughter, the pet and pride of
her father'! heart. Latterly sad
n ess had come over her.- She
felt her sins before God, and was
trying to be reconciled to mm.
The father tried to divert her.
Scheme after scheme was tried,
but none were -successful. - She
' still felt the burden of her sins,
' and could not find pleasure in the
' lightness and folly in which she
. formerly delighted. A dancing
- party . was approaching:. ' Her
' father wanted her to attend. She
declined. He urged, but she
. would not consent. He offered
stronger inducements. He would
- get for her dress the finest silk
; that eould be obtained. He would
put around her neck the most
beautiful gold-chain and watch
that can be bonfcht A '-new set
of diamond earrings and bracelets
. lest should - sparkle on her
person. He would so adorn her
that all should oe envious of her
beauty and the richness of her
apparel. The glittering'baitcon
quered her and she went. Her
wanted lightness and mirth re
-turned, and the proudtfather felt,
lor a little time, tnat he was ful
ly paid for all that the dance had
. coit him. But .there was one
fearful item vet' to be paid. The
daughter took cold onthe night
"of the dance. It was slight at
-first, and nobedy thought any
thing of it until weeks passed and
it still lingered with her. Then
the hectic glow was seen on her
cheek, and the transparent pale
Bess was in the skin, and the
more than natural brightness and
beauty beamed from her eyes,
The physician whispers that there
is no nope, and a settled gloom
spreads over the face of the dying
one, and an awful shadow comes
down upon the heart of the al
mest frantic father. Physician
after physician is called, and ex
pense after expense incurred, but
disease marches steadily on, until
it is plain that his work is well
One morning she revived
little; she called for her beautiful
dress and had it spread out en
chair before her. Then she call
ed for the watch and chain, and
the diamond earrings, and the
sparkling bracelets, and had them
laid on the table beside her dress
where in all their loveliness they
could shine upon her. Then she
sent for her father. He came in
to her room.1 He stood by her
bed-side. Her feeble voice gath
ered its strength. '. "Father, three
months ago I felt the burden of
my sins. I determined to seek a
Savior. You persuaded me to
put it off and hired me to go the
thedance. 1 went. Clod's spirit
left ms."' My impressions vanish
ed." lhen strectung forth her
transparent hand, and pointing
with her bloodless finger at the
gaudy toys that lav before her,
she said : "Father, there is the
price of my soul," and with
gasp or two of breath she was
gone. - ;' '.'
This is no fancy sketch. It was
too 6adly true as more than one
can testify Memphis , Pretbyte-
As soon as the first frosts are
felt, the musk-rats select a mud
bar,or spot where the bushes grow
m the Winter, often near lilies
as the root of this plant is
favorite article of food with them
-and proceed to lay a founda
tion for their house. In the first
place, they gnaw off at the wa
ter's edge a quantity of coarse
grasses, rushes, and small bush
es. Gathering this between the
cbiri and fore-paws, as if carrying
the material in their arms, they
push it te the place where they
intend using it. The place where
they have harvested their grass
and rushes looks as if some one
had mowed it with a scythe. Af
ter the musk-rats have brought
together material enough to
make a solid foundation .and have
raised the structure to the water's
edge, they dive below and tun
nel under neath it, coming up
through the middle of the mass.
The work is then carried oa from
the inside : mud, decayed vege
tation, moss, and other such ma
terial, are carried through this
tunnel and pushed out from the
inside until it is raised to the
right height and roofed over ; or,
as Wirittier poetically describes
it. - ' -- '
"The Hink-nt plied the Vanl trade.
And tier bjr tier hi Mad-walls made."
Inside thi hillock a -small
chamber about a foot in diameter
is left, and here, within solid,
compact walls, sometimes two
feet thick, the musk-rats have
their comfortable Winter quar
Their tunnel gives themaccess
to the water when the brook is
frozen over In the Winter arap
on this nest will bring one more
of its inmates out, and you will
see them scatter away on the
bottom of the brook,picking their
way among the 6tones and roots
leaving wherever they go, if the
brook is frozen over, a line of
bubbles underthe ice. ' When an
open space is 'reached, the crea
tnre gently rises to the water's
surface, and just putting the nese

an observation and a breath of

These nests vary m size and

built and until the snow and rain
smooth them ofL If the nast is
broken open, they " immediately
begin repairs, working from the
inside. When the meadows and
brooks are frozen over, the nests
appear as if built on the ice, and
sometimes, in the late Winter or
Spring freshets, the upper part
of the nest is lilted up and mov

irm this impression ; but upon
examination, it will be' found
that the foundation is always .on

Farm and Household.
Many horses are . called foun
dered when it is only a stiffness
of the cords of the neck and shoal
der, caused by the check-rein
You have often seen a horse step
back in his stall, after he has
been out to show his best points,
and put his nose down to the floor.
The groom, with a wise look,
will remark, "The old man gave
him a hard one to-day," while
the horse was only stretching out
the cords of his neck, and then.to
make the matter worse, the ig
noramus ties the halter shorter,
so as to "make him stand up in
his stall.". , "That action was an
error or if yon gag him up" and
then refuse to let nature restore
the equilibrium, you will in a
short time create a contraction
in the cords of the neck and shoul
ders, and the horse shows " a stiff
ness which appears to be a foun
der.') My preventive is to feed
from a manger on a level with
his feet and over twenty inches
in front.1 This lets a horse feed
as he was made to eat ; a horse
never was made to eat like a gi
raffe.' Another objection to high
mangers (and I never saw any
thing in their favor) is, they irri
tate the throat and windpipe.and
create a tendency to heaves.; If
horsemen would use more com
mon sense they would need less
medicine. Rural New Yorker.
How to Adorn Your Mansion.
There is nothing so nice as hav
ing agood porch in front of your,
house, unless, indeed, it is hav-
ing the porch duuu Mr. uiram
HigginDottam, of Monson Street,
has just got anew porch complet
ed. It issmall affair, "hot over
ten feet long, but it took seven
weeks to build it. The first week
a carpenter came to the house
climbed over the fence, set his
tool box down on a fine mossrose
bush and solemnly made some
measurements, put ' some marks
on the house and went away.
Nobody came for a ' week, when
another carpenter came up with
a pair of trestles and ' an armful
of saws and things. ' He carried
the trestles into the -front hall
hung bis saws up on the hat rack,
looked vacantly around and mys
teriously disappeared. That eve
ning Mrs. Higginbottani: rather
snapishly asked Mr. H. if he in
tended to get the men to work
on that porch." He sighed gloom-.
ily,and said they would get start
ed about nexWeek. Along tow
ard the middle of the week a third
carpenter came up, jerked down
the saws, planted the trestles in
Miss. Higginbottama verbena bed
and began to saw lunousiy. iwo
or three davs later a laborer
came and due a place for the
masons to lay the wall, and threw
dirt all over the gravel wait and
then a manlcame and enptied
cart load of brick on the tulip
bed. Then the mason came and
threw mortar all over that. part
of the township, getting a; little
of ifevervwhere except between
the brick. That was the only safe
Dlace. Finallv the lumber
for ithe , porch arrived and was
hurled madly over the fence,
blotting out the last traces of a
garden in the front yard,--and
sending the grass platt into a par
tial eclipse.. Then'there was Dus-
mess. rne enure yara was two
feet deep in shavings and -saw
dust, and eight-penny nails per
meated the very hash. One morn
ing Mr.. Higginbottam opened the
front door, and was immediately
afterward disagreeably surprised
to learn that a short ladder was
leaning against the door with
carpenter and a tool box on the
top rung. Nobodv 6eemed to en
joy the consequent inciaent so
much as the tool box- lue car
penter and Mr. Higgin bottom
held a briel conversation,in which
their remarks though fitful, were
earnest, and Mr. H . went down
to his office shaking chisels, bits,
gouges, straight-edges, and nails
various denominations out of
his hair and sieves. The porch
done now. One day the car
penters scraped up everything
portable about the, premises and
slid away. The porch stands a
little awry, is higher at one end
than at the other, and stands
about three inches from the house
and the roof leaks; but the Hig
ginbottam are satisfied and don't
want any repairs made. The
yard looks as if Mr. ' Higginbot
tam had been pasturing three or.
four streaks of chain lightning in
it for a week or two," and they
had been unusualy restive and
prone to geuge things.' But these
are trifles compared with the com
fort of having a new porch. Pe.
