Dirt nny one ever hoar of my " fighting
the tiger" nyear or two ago in Alabama?
11' any one hasn't heard that
story, he'd better plaster his hair to his
head, and sew his coat to his skin ; for,
cuss me if it isn't enough lo frighten a
man out of his senses.
" Well ! Some time 'long in the month
of July, Sal came to me one day, and
says she to me?says she?Joe,?I
want some bar meat, and I guess that
you had better cut right out and get me
some. Now. you must recollect, fellers,
that Sal was sorter sick about that time,
and used to take the" darndest crankest
kind of notions in her head thai ever I
heard of. Hut, however, 1 slung "old
IJellzy" over my shoulder, and sat oui
in lull ciuuso ol llie only bear thai we
had hoard of in that neck of the woods
during the* summer. A long, and a
hot, and a wearisome tramp I had ; but {
luck was with me, 1- finally brought :
li old Bellzy" to a level on him, and just
laid him out as slick as ever you saw a
coon couse a dog. Little time elapsed
before he was regularly cleansed, while
I made a break for home, as 1 was tired,
hot and hungry. The tramp was a
longone; and the load none ol the lightest,
and I soon grew faint and sick, under
the heat of the sun. Casting about
for a spot upon which to rest until the
cool of the evening. I soon found a quiet
nook under the shade of a cluster of
vines, to which I took an especial liking.
llanfrinnp mv o:imo to lln> hrmifh nl'si !
neighboring tree. nnd resting my gun i
by its side, [ retired to this inviting spot,
and was quickly in a land where uneasiness
is not I'clt. How long i slept it is
impossible to say : but the nap generally,
was a sweet and refreshing one, and ;
might have lasted much longer, il l had
^ not been disturbed by a slimy and compressing
sensation about my throat together
with a feeling that something
was passing over my face which was
not every way pleasant to me. L was not
thoroughly disturbed ; yet I fell my situation
becoming more and more unpleasant,
and' in a dreamy listlessness, apencd
my eyes to see what was going on,
when?mercy on me ! I found an enor.
mous snake (well known in that region

my neck, and was hobbling his nasty
head back and forth upon my face,
while his horrible tongue was playing
like lightning upon my features I With
a yell- of horror, I sprung to nriy feet!
Fortunately, my presence of mind did
not leave ino, and 1 bethought myself at
once of my knife. Q,uietly drawing it
from my belt. I managed to pass it between
my throat and the snake, until I
was sure that its point had reached beyond
the widest fold ; then with a sud
aen movement, turned tne oacK to my
skin, the blade to my enemy, and, with
a vigorous thrust of my wrist, he was
laying powerless about my feet. Before
I had lime to recover from my alarm,
I looked, and, mercy again! I
found a grander horror upon me! Drawn
by the scent of blood, a tiger had found
my game during my sleep, and was
rampant and raging over his prey.
Never shall I forget the growl which he
gave when he first saw me. There he
was rearing upon the game before him,
his eyes like bulls of fire ; I saw but one
hope and that was to recover the knife,
which in my first surprise I had let drop.
I made one effort to secure it, but my
enemy kept too close a watch upon me
and darted upon me before I could reach
a ^ i- _ -* ? *
ii. .tt.3 no came, wiin a tnunaering
roar and flaming eyes, I gave myself up
for lost; blindly 1 closed my fist and
made a pass as he reared upon me.
Fortunately my arm passed direct into
his throat as he ripped my clothes in
threads with his iron paws, I kept shoving
my fist on?on?on, until it was
through and through, by thunder!
Quick as lightning I seized his tail, riz
upon my feet, gave a hearty jerk, and
turned the tarnal beast clean inside out!
Strangers, I thought I should a fiummixed
right on the spot; but I got over
it, and I feel none the worse for " fighting
the tiger. Who'll drink.?St. Louis
Comparisons are odious.?No one
ever credits the black in the South

Smoking Seed Corn.?A corrcs

Writes:?"I wish to remind youi
readers, that if they would save

seed ears, so that they can be hung
up in the smoke house, and smokec
with the hams ; or hang them uj
in any dry plttce and before planting,
dip the end of a stick in tar

years, and have saved many times

Boiling Potatoes.?Not one
house-keeper out of ten knows how
to boil potatoes properly. Here is
an Irish method, one of the besl
we know. Clean wash the potatoes
and leave the skin on,then
bring the water to a boil and
throw them in. As soon as boiled
soft enough for a fork to be easily
thrust through them, dash some
eold water into the pot, let the potatoes
remain tv\ o minuutes, and
then pour off the water. This
don<^ half remove the pot lid, and
let the potatoes remain over a
slow fire till the steam is evaporated,
then oeel and s?f. tlipm on tVi<
I """ """ *" *" v,"v
table in an open dish. Potatoes
of a good kind thus cooked will
always be sweet, dry* and mealy,
A covered dish is bad for potatoes,
as it keeps the steam in, and makes
them soft and waterly.
Calvks with Sheep,?We have
often recommended the keeping oi
calves with sheep, as we have
found it an excellent plan, and
highly approved of by others who
have tried it. ' In this way there
is less trouble, and the calves keep
in fine condition upon the coarse
part of the fodder which the sheep
leave. In such cases calves are
never afflicted with virmin. and if
any arc on them before, they will
soon disappear after the calves

usually provided with a good
shelter in winter, and the calves

Ur. Spencer's Vegetable Pills,
and Vegetable Tonic and Restorative
The value and efficacy of p.-nccr's Vegetable
Pills have long beer. known and up- j
predated in a groat variety of discases.and
as the best anil most important, of Family
Medicines. Dr peneer having been actuated
by a desire to benefit his fellow beings,
ha* also prepared his Vegetable Tonic
and Restorative Bitters, which he now
offers to the public, as the result of an ex-,
tensive practice, and thorough investigation
of the laws which govern the human
They are purely Vegetable, and may be
taken with perfect snfety by all ages and
sexes in youthful, adult and declining life.
The design of pencer's Vegetable Pills
and Vegetable Tonic Restorative Bitters,
is to create a flow of pure healthy bile, in
stead or the stale and acid kind.
The obiect of the Pills is to stimulate
all the vital organs of the system into i ction,
and thereby cleanse the stomach and
bowels of all the morbific and offensive
matter with which the system is clogged,
and which promotes disease. The Bitters
are to strengthen and restore the stomach
and vital organs, to their proper tone and
vigor. When this is accomplished, good
health must be the result.
The complaints that come most directly
under their influence, and for which they
are so particularly designed, art as follows:
Bilious Fever, Fever and Ague, Dyspepsia,
Liver Complaints, iek head-ache,
Enlargement of the plo en, Jaundice,Piles
Cholic, Bowel and summer complaints.
Impurities of the blood, Femalt; Obstruct
tion, Heartburn, Incipient Diarroeh. Habi
tual Costiveness, Determination of blood ?
to liio head, Loss of Appetite, Blotched or i
allow Complexion and in all cas'-s of
Torpor of the bowels, where a cathartic or
apperiont medicine if? needed. As many
of the abovt* enumerated diseases come on
imperceptibly, and become far advanced
in their progress before it is suspected that I
they exist in the system, no one should i
expect, in such cases, to be at once ruliey i
rd entirely, but should continue the use of 1
the Medicine for a considerable length of '
time. Full directions accompany tho me- ]
dicines for their use,in nil those complaints I
for which they are recommended. '
Price 25 cents p<-r box for the Pills, and
?>l per bottle for the Bitters.
