Learn a Trade. —The prospect for wealth and position to-day is brighter to any young man of ability and ambition, who will learn well and thoroughly a good trade, than for any one who attempts to crowd into the professions, Thecoun try is sadly in want of mechanics who combine skill with intelligence. Not a workshop can he found to-day where they are not needed. Not a manufacturing or mechanical establishment exists in the country which is not deficient, some way or other, in skilled assistance. It is the skillful, intelligent mechanic who is most in demand, and hence none of them are to ho found who are not profitably em ployed. Wealth is rapidly accumulated by such men, who devote themselves to the various mechanical pursuits, or to the production of articles which tiro regarded in the sense of necessities by tho commu nity. The pressing demand of the day is not rot mere ornament, but for those who by tin labor of baud and brain combined, are able to make capital productive. Our advice to young men is to earnestly apply themselves to tho acquisition of such knowledge as will enable them to supply the ever increasing demand for skilled labor, thereby not only laying the foun dation for future personal prosperity’, but nt the same time rendering a high and permanent benefit to the community.— Uoston Globe. Tits: passengers on one of our crowded ferry boats wore much amused one day at seeing a gentleman very dettly pick a friend's pocket of his pocket book and transfer it to his own. They were still , more amused nt seeing n third “gentle- 1 man” take the pocket book even more deftly from the amateur, and disappear in the crowd. Tho denouement soon came. Number two asked number one to let him see his pocket book, and when lus lend could not find it, proceeded with a -mile to restore it to him. llis -mile, however, was soon changed to a look of intense surprise, which was very much enjoyed by the bystanders, for they expected tliut “gentleman” number throe would soon appear and unravel to his friends this amusing mystery, lint alas! Number three never came back. He was it seems, a true “artist,” who had coolly robbed the amateur as publicly ns the latter robbed his friend. In tho hurry and confuion of landing, number three tnado his escape, so the amateur was obliged to compensate his friend for tlie contents of his pocket baok, probably resolving to eschew ever alter any such practical joke. A Washington paper tells of un ele gantly dressed young lady who went into one ol the dry goods stores on Pennsylva nia avenue, bought a spool of cotton ami requested the proprietor to have it sent home. Overwhelmed with the important duty so suddenly thrust upon him, he immediately procured an express wagon and detailed a clerk, who'lifting the spool into the wagon, drovo with it to the resi dence of the young lady, anil dismount ing, rang the bell, and when the door was opened, placed the spool upon his shoul der and carried it into the hall, anil gently placed it on end, as if it had been a bar rel of flour, and then retired. Tho con sternation of the family can be imagined. The head of tho houso has boon dodging in aud out of the dry goods store during the past week trying to find that clerk. In Galloway large craigs are mot with having ancient writings on them. One on the farm of Knockleby 1ms, cut deep on the upper side, “ Lift me up and I’ll tell you more.” A number of people gathered to the craig, and succeeded in lifting it up, hoping to ho well repaid ; but instead of finding any gold they found written on it, " Lay me down as I was before.” Ml DEAF WIFE AND AIM. I had an aunt coming to visit me for tho first time since my marriage, and I don’t know wliat evil genius prompted the wickedness which I perpetrated to ward my wife and ancient relation. “My dear,” said I to my wife on the day before my aunt’s arrival, “ you know Aunt Mary is coming to-morrow. Well, I forgot to mention a very annoying cir cumstance with regard to her. She is very deaf ; although she can hear my ; voice, yet you will be obliged to speak extremely loud in order to be heard. It will be rather inconvenient, but 1 know you will do everything in your power to make her visit agreeable.” Mrs. announced herdeteriniuation to be heard, if in her power. I then went to John N , who loves a joke about as well ns any person I know of, and told hint to be in the house at U p. m. the following evening, and felt com paratively happy. I went to the railroad depot next even ing with a carriage, and when I was on iny way home with my aunt, 1 said : “ My doar aunt, there is ono rather an noying infirmity that Anna (my wife) has, which I forgot to mention before. She is very deaf, and nlthough she can hear my voice, to which she is accustom ed, yet you will have to speak extremely loud in order to be henrd. I nm sorry for it.” Aunt Mary, in tho goodness of her heart, protested that she rather liked and to do so would aflbrd her great pleas ure. Tho carriage drove up—on the steps was my wife —in the window wns John N , with a face ns utterly Solemn as if he had buried his relatives that fore noon. “ I am delighted to see you,” shrieked my wife, and the policemen on the op posite block started, und my aunt nearly fell down the steps. “ Kiss me my denr,” bawled my aunt; and the windows shook as if with tho fever and ague. 1 looked at the window, John had disappeared. Human nature could stand it no longer. I poked my head in to the carriage and went into strong con vulsions. ‘When I entered tho parlor my wife wns helping Aunt Mary take oil her hat and cape; and there wns John with his lace buried in his handkerchief. Suddenly—“ Did you have a pleasant journey ?” wont off my wife liko a pistol, and John nearly jumped to his foot. “ Rather dusty,” was the response in a war whoop, and the conversation contin ued. The neighbors for blocks around must have heard it; when I was in the third story ot the building I heard every word. In tho course of the evening my aunt took occasion to sny to mo : “ How loud your wife talks 1” I told her deaf persons talked so and that my wife being used to me was not affected by tho exertion, and that she wus getting along very nicoly with her. Presently my wifo said softly : “Alt, how vory loud your aunt talks.” “ Yes,” said I, “all deaf persons do. You’re getting along with her finely; she hears every word you say.” And 1 rather think she did. Elated ut their succoss in being under stood, they went at it hammer and tongs, till everything uj>nn tho mantel piece clattered again, and 1 was seriously afraid of a crowd collecting in frontof the house. Hut the end was near. My aunt being of an investigating turn of mind, was de sirous of finding out whether the exertion of talking wns injurious to my wifo. “ Doesn’t talking so loud strain your lungs ?” she said in an unearthly whoop, for her voice was not so musical as it was when she was young. “ It is an exertion,” shrieked my wifo. “ Then why do you do it T” was the answering scream. “ Hecause—because yon can’t hear if I don’t,” squealed my wife. “ What!” said my aunt rivaling a rail road whistle this time. 1 began to think it time to evacuate the premises ; and looking about nnd seeing John gone, 1 stepped into tho back par lor, nnd there ho lay flat on his buck, with his feet at right angles and body rolling from side to side, with his list poked into his ribs, and a most agonized expression of countenance, but not utter ing a sound. I immediately and invol untarily assumed a similar attitude, and 1 think from the relative position of our feet nnd heads and our attempts to re strain our laughter, n|M>ploxy must inev itably have ensued, if a horrible groan which John gave vent to in his endeavor to suppress his risibility had not betrayed our hiding nlace. In rushed my wife and aunt, who by this time comprehended the joko, and such a scolding as 1 got then I never got before, and hope nover to get again. I know not what tho end would hnvo been if John in his endeavor to be re spectful and sympathetic, had not given vent to such a groan and horse laugh, tliut all gravity wus upset and we screamed in concert. I know it was vory wrong nnd nil that, to tell such a falsehood, but I think that Mrs. Opio herself would have laughed if she had seen Aunt Mary’s expression when she wus informed that her hearing was defective. At a church collection lor missions the preacher feelingly said, “My good breth ren, let me caution those of you who put in buttons not to break the cyu; it spoils them for use.” HI KKV-1 1‘1‘KK.H. I have just been reading Olive Thom’s trials with a put-offer, and I cannot resist putting in a word on the other side of the question, and telling something of the life of a hurry-upper. If the “ habit of putting off is frightful ly common,” the other extreme is fright fully dangerous. For while a slow, easy person usually enjoys a long life, one of those go-ahead drivers will hurry him self into the grave and drive his friends thero before him. For the last eight years, I havo been daily, yes, hourly, prompted by such precepts ns, “ Take time by the forelock,” “ Procrastination is the thief of time,” “ Delays ure danger ous,” “Time is money,” etc., by a hus band who is a model in every respect ex cept that ho is always in a hurry. Some of you nmy sigh with envy perhaps, at the thought of a husband with only one fault—but if there is anything else so wearing to both body and soul ns being hurried, I do not know what it is. “Hurry up, hurry up, Em, it's almost 7 o’clock—time breakfast was ready,” is often the first greeting 1 have in the morning. Hut long ago I learned that “most 7 o’clock ” means from five to ten minutes alter 0, and David always keeps our clock a half-hour ahead of tho right time ; why, I gain still another half hour, and reckon tho real time is only half past 5. I do protest against tho idea of gaining time by having the clock too fast. When our clock is ahead of time I am always thinking, Well the clock is too fast, 1 need not hurry so ; and I go a lit tle slower—and then, am too late, when, if tho elock hud been right 1 would havo planned accordingly. Now, I hope no one will think I am one of tho put-offers, for I am not. 1 am never late to church, and in my school days I used to pride myself on my punct uality—would go term nfter term without getting a single lardy-mark—never used to miss n train of cars, though 1 never lmd to sit an hour on the hard seats in the depot waiting for a train, as I lmvo sometimes done since David, tho hnsty, became my guide. Shall 1 ever forget tho last time we went to visit grnndma 7 L am certain the hurry and worry uud excitement of that one trip must have shortened the span of my earthly career by some hours at least. 1 was in a very happy frame of mind, that morning, thinking how pleased grnndma would to see us, and how she would admire Baby Hcnnio (tho only grandchild,) and whether sho would agree with me in thinking it best not to cut his gums to let the little teeth through, etc. With a great many such things running through my mind, I was leisurely get ting Bennie rcudy for his bath, stopping to admire his dimpled shoulders, and give him a hug and a kiss, when 1 heard tho front door open nnd shut hastily. The next moment David called up the stairs, “ Emma, how near are you ready? It is time wo wore off." Now I know bettor. I knew tho train did not leavo for a good hour at lenst, but somehow, when David gets in one of his hurrying tits, it is alwnys contagious, and in a few minutes 1 was Hying around the house at a rate that wus a caution to all slow folks. Bennie's bath, of course must be onrit od. I would only have time Ur wipe off his face and hunds a little, which, of course, he resisted with all his force ot list and foot. A regular bath in hi.< bath tub ho alwuys enjoys, but a wash-rag 7 lie’ll tight it to his lust breath. Under the circumstances 1 did not wait Ur put much of a polish on tho chubby cheeks, but hurried his clothes on, and, to keep him out of mischief, seated him in the middle of my nice clean bed. He must have something Ur amuse himself, any thing to keep him still, I thought, as 1 crowded tho cover tight in the pomade jar, and handed it to him, greatly to his delight, for it was a new plaything. Bennie disposed of, I hurried to get myself ready. I had just taken down my hair, when another call came from below, “ Come, Em, hurry up!” Now, Naturo has given mo a switch oidy a yard and a-quarter lung, nnd thick pro jrortionately— not like a chignon that can be pinned on at a moment’s notice —but with slinking lingers (for the hurry was alrendy begining to tell on my nervus) I twisted it up in alrout two minutes, nnd was hurrying on my clothes, when again from tho lower regions came a call, “ Why, wife, what are you about 7 You surely will be left, do hurry !” Oh, was not that exasperating! When every nerve and muscle I possessed weie strain ed to the utmost in my efforts to move fast, to bo told to “ hurry.” My emo tions were indescribable, but certainly my strongest desiru was to get my fingers around that man’s throat, nnd, if possi ble, choke off, for five minutes at loust* that everlasting “hurry up.” A noise from Bennie attracted my at tention, nnd 1 turned to him to find tho little mischief had taken the cover off'tho pomndo jar, and with his little fingers had taken out dabs of pomade and spread thorn all over the counterpane, pillows, and everything else within his reach. Never mind, we must not wait now to fix things, for just then came another call, " Do hurry, Em ; are you never com ing 7” and I hurried down stairs, wiping Bennie's fingers as 1 went, and wo hur ried into tho carriage—and the horse hur ried to the depot at a rate that cent people flying across street crossings—for David always will keep a horse that goes like the wind ; ho can’t wuit for u slow horse. When we reached the depot 1 trembled so that Bennie’s heavy weight lairly dragged me down, but we were there in time, surely, tor no train enine for forty five minutes. Weary minutes they were to me, for 1 was ashamed of my dirty baby, and tears of vexation would come into my eyes when 1 thought of the room I left in such disorder, when there v/rr, plenty of time to make it neat and tidy. And yet, my dear, old kind David, I am already conscience-smitten to think I have been complaining at his having even one fault. — Minor Jirooks , in Christian l/'niun. Mkni>ki.s8oiin's Wooing. —Tho hon ored Moses Mendelssohn became ac quainted with tho merchant Guggenheim, of Hamburg. “llabbi Moses,” said ho one day, “ wo all honor you, but my daughter reveres and admires you with tho warmest en thusiasm. It would give mo the great est happiness to have you for n son-in law. Come and make us a visit in Ham burg.” Mendelssohn came to Hamburg, and called on Guggenheim in his counting house. He said : “Go in and soe my daughter; it will .give her much pleasure to seo you. I have told her much about you.” Mendelssohn called on the daughter.— Again he came to Guggenheim in his counting-house. The two men did not know what to say, and, at last Mendels sohn spoke of tho lovely and thoughtful nature of his daughter. “ Yos, honored Rabbi,” said Guggen heim, “ but shall 1 speak frankly. “ Certainly.” “ You are a philosopher, a well-think ing, wiso man, you will not take it amiss of tho child ; she has said—she is afraid, when she sees you—beeauso you—” •* Beeauso that 1 have such a lvideous hump ” Guggenheim nodded. “ I linvo thought of that,” said Men delssohn, “ but yet 1 will go and sny fare well to your daughter.” He went into the house and seated him self by the daughter, who sat on a raised seat by the window, with noodlnwork in her hand. They talked easily and famil iarly with each other, but their eyes did not meet. At last tho maiden asked this question. “ Do you believe that marriages are made in llcnvon ?” “ Certainly, and to me something ex traordinary happened; You know that according to a saying of the Talmud, at tho birth of a child it is proclaimed in Heaven this one belongs to such a one.— Now, when I was born, my wife was nl so announced, but thereupon it was said she should receive from a sorrowful God a hump, a dreadful one. ‘Dear God,’ said I then, ‘a maiden who is hump-lmck od will easily grow bitter and haul ; a maiden should be beautiful. Dear God, give mo the hump, and let the maiden be beautiful and well-pleasing.’ ” Hardly had Moses Mendelssohn said this than the maiden fell on his neck.— And sho became his wife and they were happy together, and hail beautiful and bravo children, descendants are living even to this very day.— Jlerlholtl Auerbach. Kaki.y California J,ikk.—We ro mcinhnr once hearing a story that, if true, certainly is a good representation of the days of '49 in California. No doubt many who read it will recognize tho sim ilarity. It seems that a party of miners nt work some miles from the nearest sta tion at which they could obtain supplies, ran out of “ grub,” and detailed one of their number to go to town and purchase a new supply—giving him the Inst they bad in the world to pay for it, leav ing it to his discretion how to expend tho money. He went into town and indue course of time returned to camp, laden with #19 50 worth of whisky and four bits in crackers. When he deposited his precious cargo boforo their hungry gaze, one of them indignantly asked : “ What tile devil are wo going to do with so many crackers ?” A Tiiouoiit.—Woro children accus tomed from their infancy to hear nothing but correct conversation, there would be but little need of their learning arbitrary rules of grammar ; they would naturally speak and write correctly. Hcnco it is that children of educated parents are generally so much more easy and grace ful in their conversation than thochildren of the uneducated. Our language, like our manners, Is caught from thoso with whom we associate, and if wo would have the young improve in this important part of education, wo must bo careful that they hear no vulgarisms from us. — Parents and teachors cannot be too par ticular in their use of language in tho presence of imitutivo children. A loving heart and a pleasant coun tenance are commodities which a man should novor fail to take home with him. They will best season his food and soften his pillow. It woro a great thing for a man that his wife and children could tru ly say of him, “Ho novor brought a frown or unhappiness across bis threshold. What greater thing is there for two human souls than to feel that they ara joined for life, to strengthen each other iu all labor, to rest on each othor in all sorrow, to minister to each other in all pain, to bo one with each other in silent, unspeakable memories at the moment of the last meeting.
