THE WAY TO BE HAPPY.
A story is told of two travellers in Lapland
which throws more light on the nrt of heir g
happy than a whole volume of proverl s ai.*l
aphorisms. Upon a very cold day in winter
they were driving along in a sledge wiaj p< d
in furs from head to foot. Even their face*
were closely covered, and you could hardly #
see any thing but their eye-brows, and tl,*->f
were white and glistening with frost. At
length they saw a poor man bad sunken down
benumbed and frozen in the snow. “We
must stop and help him,” said one of the
travellers. “Stop and help him!" replied the
other, “you will never think of stopping on
such a day as this! Wfe are half frozen ou*
selves and ought to be at our journey s er d
as soon ah possible." “But I cannot leave
this man to perish," rejoined the more hu
mane traveller; “I must goto his relief,” an 1
he stopped bis sledge. “Come said he, come
and help me to raise him." “Not I.” replied
the other: “I have too much regard f r my
own life to expose myself to this freezing at
mosphere more than is necessary. 1 will
sit here and keep myself as wurm as I can
till you come back." So saying be resolute
ly kept bis seat, while bis companion hasten
edto relieve the perishing man whom they 1 a i
so providentially discovered. The ordinary
means were used for restoring consciousness
but the traveller was so intent upon saving
the life of a tellow-creature that he forgot his
owo exposure; and what were the conse
quence*? Why, the very efforts which h*
made to warm that stranger warmed himself. *
He had the sweet consciousness of doing a
benevolent Act, and healso found h imsell glow
ing from head to foot by reason of the exer
tions which he had made. And how was if
with his companion who was so much afraid
of exposing himself? He was almost ready
to freeze, notwithstanding the efforts he had
been making to keep warm! The I s*.*n
to be derived from this little incident is ob
vious.— X. I”. Obserttr.
A SINGULAR REIVG.
Upon the bank of the Alleghany river, roar
the “Red House creek," saye the Albany
Journal, is a shanty, about eight or ten feet
square, with a fireplace and chimney ol stone
and finished and furnished in an equally
cheap and primitive style. Its only occupant
is a roan just past the prime of life, whoso
sole occupation is the rearing and care of a
large number of swarms of bees, which gives
him the sobriquet of the “Bee Hermit.” It
is the only name he is known by. He has
lived there for four years past. Where he
came from, and what ishisnarne, isunkn< wn
to all. His range of beee is several rod* in
length, closely fitted with two ranges of hives,
and each hive supplied with a small straw
cap, similar to the old fashioned straw hive,
in which he secures the surplus honey. His
only companions and associates arc a number
of dogs, of w’uuui he appears to be extreme's*
food, llis only labor is the care of his bees,
and bis household duties, which are txce l
ingly simple and trifling. His salce are lint*
