A Yankee has invented a milking machine

During the titue when Clayton was ruler of
Arkansas, all ju-tics of the peace had to bo
appointed by His Excellency. On-) old neirro,
who thought he knew enough to discharge the
duib's of the office, called on the Governor to
be examined and receive his appoiniiuent..
Several questions were given hira, ail of which
he managed very well. But when he was ask
ed : "What would you do in a case where a
man had committed suicide ?" What weuld 1
do ?" said the rn-gro. "Well, sah, in a case like
dat, de very lea<y I could do, sah. would be to
make him s'port de child'" He was ap

About Going West. ? Io reply to a letter
from a young iuid asking if it would be advis
able to go to Nevada, the Virginia Enterprise
remark.":
"Yes! Come right along! You will find
plenty ot company io the thousands of hungry
men who day after day, till hope deterred
makes the heart sick, walk their weary rounds
searching in vain for a place within the ranks
of toilers above mentioned. As soon as you
set foot on our soil you can begin to pay prices
for supplies which will open your eyes. Board
from $7 to $10 per week, lodgings fifty cents a
night, unless you are one of ihose who try to
steal fllpep from the sidewalks, when the price
will advance to twenty dollars or ten days in
jail.
"Yes! Come along! You may be fortunate
enough, after staying aud starving a fewy-.-ars,
to secure a place in some of the mines, where
two thousand feet below the surface, and io a
temperature ranging from 100 to 120 degrees
Fahrenheit, and where the water comes hiss
ing hot from Tartarus, you can swing the
sledge, ply the pic, or trundle a ion of rock.
To be sure, there is some danger in the depths
The accidents average one a day the year rouod,
and about one io five is fatal. Sometimes you
may be called upon to perform service where a
fall will render your body a shapeless mass a
thousand feet below. Ten thousand tons of
rock may tumble down upon you. and leave
not the semblance ot humanity in your manly
form; you may strike water in a drift, and y >ur
life less body be found wet ks after, when the
pump has again drained the mint'; you may re
ceive a chip, on which some friend has written
a lino to toll you that the shaft is on tire, and
your couHiiUjioatiou with the surface aud loved
ones cut oil at ouce forever. All these and a
tbousaud in <re things may occur, and for in

Bells on Sheep ?Dogs that are disposed
to kill sheep know belter. Hruce any unu.-ual
noise like the riugiug of a bell whenever they
are about to attack the sheep Irighiens them,
so that they abandon their blood thir.-ty pro
ject. li. W. Mathesoo, ol Connecticut, writes
to the Country Gentleman as follows:
"The effects ot th? bell.- iu preventing d im
age to sheep by dogs lias been well proved in
this vicinity the past seasou. Of fourteen
fl ieks without bells but <>ne escaped; in fiv<
fl icks with bells on each sheep no damage was
none. Mr D. Fowler, of Middsefiuld, had h
flock partially belled, and lust but one sheep,
which sirayed into another lot. was without a
bell, and Was killed. Mr. A. B C ?e bought a
flock and put it in a lot aoj ?lutng the former,
and soon fouh I two dogs at work at the f??rty
fit)h sheep. The dogs belonged within a quai
ter ot a mile, and passed Mr. Fowler's sheep in
getting int> Mr. Coe's flak. D.'gs, after get
ting the taste of blood ol' uub. lied s'-erp, m y
attack sheep with be'ls on; yet, 1 believe, it a.i
the sheep were belled, trouble Iroui dogs w?.uiu
be very rare."
The Galveston N w> says that a gentleman
liviog up the bay saw a negro man, with bis
wife and four children, forced to take to a tree
to save themselves during the late storm. The
tree swayed to and fro with the violence of the
wind, and threatened to fail with its heavy bur
den. The old couple concluded that seme one
must be sacrificed to save the rest. After a con
sultation the old woman said she was not pre
pared to die, and urged the old man to drop
himself into eternity. But he. too, weren't ready
and the matter was compromised by launching
the two youngest children into the surging wa
icrs. A few hours after they were rescued, and
'he old negro told the story himself to those
who saved him.
