There are but few words in our lan guage that awaken our sympathies, arouse our feelings, and call forth the finer sensibilities of our nature like the word home. The Esquimau in his snow house, the African in his hut beneath the burning sun, the Indian in his wigwam amidst the forest, the dweller on the mountain-top, the rich man in his palace, the intelligent or ignorant, the lowliest of ail, have implanted in their breast a love of home. That one word brings up recollections that nothing can obliterate. It matters not what station in life a per son mxy be called out to till, he will ever think of home. Who is there that can ever forget the time when father or mother would take us at early morn and at close of day and teach us te lisp a prayer to heaven ? Who forgets a good night kiss when a fond parent would take us on the knee and instil into our young minds the principles of virtue and re ligion, and invoking a blessing on our head, hush us tea sweet repose ? And when prostrated with sickness, with what care we would be watched over, how carefully they would smooth our fevered brow, and soothe our troubled spirit, and supply our every want! How many hours of watchful care till we were once more restored to health, and with what joy they would then pour upon us their endearing caresses ! Who but calls to mind, when with those they hold most dear, they climbed their native lulls or roamed the smiling valley, or wandered by the babbling brook, or standing on the beach watching the * idal wave as it dashed the silvery spray at our feet! — And then our school days, with our in nocent games upon the school house green ! Ah ! and of how many of our dear school-mates who have gone before us to that bourne from which no traveler returns, and of the many friendships then formed that have lasted through life ! How few of us then thought of the trials and afflictions we would have to encounter, and of the many heart aches we would feel in being absent from home! How well we remember the pleasant evenings we spent with the old folks at home, or walking the green fields with her who has been our partner thro’ the joys and sorrows of life ? and how wc led her to the altar of God, and be fore the minister of heaven pledged our mutual vows; and then when heaven blessed our married life with our little offspring, how we loved, fondled and cherished it, and taught its infant lips to praise its God ! The recollections of home will cling to us through life, it matters not what sta tion in life we may fill. Wo may climb to the highest pinnacle of fame or sink to the lowest depths of misery and deg radation, the thoughts of home will still cling to us. Let me here recite an instance of how thoughts of home will cling to us in deepest poverty. It is abridged from the Rochester Democrat: A poor man confined in the cell of a police station, was heard playing on a month organ, and playing, as it was said of a great artist, with his whole soul in the work. The notes were burdened with melan choly. They struck the heavy stone walls and rolled along the cold flag stones in a dreary sort of way—floating in and out of the dark cells and through the prison halls, they seemed to gather mournfulnessand melancholy from every bar of iron and piece of stone they touched. There was a heart-opening plaiutiveness in his tones that could not be denied. Ho was playing “Home, Sweet Home.” He seemed to feel it, to send out every note from some sacred recess of his heart; to have studied and repeated every sentiment of the grand old creation until it became part and parcel of his nature. He had lived away out West, beyond the Mississippi. He left his father’s house and went down the Father of Waters and then out on the broad ocean. Years had gone since then. He had traversed the streets of Jerusalem, and walked over the ground that Christ had trod; had heard the voices of the Muezzin in Constantinople, and seen the follower of the Prophet kneel in St. Sophia ; had seen the won ders of the East, and felt the cold winds of the North ; all had taught him the truth of Paine’s words : “There is no place like Home.” He wanted to go back there just once more. There was a father and mother, brother and sisters when he left. He did not know whether they were there now or not. He was penniless and friendless. Sickness had laid her hand upon him. He would go back, though. The lakes would soon open, or he could walk it if it was neces sary. Ho turned and laid down on the hard iron bed, and again the music float ed with its sad, sad mourufulness.— Hundreds of miles from home, penniless, friendless and forlorn, toiling towards that western home. The piece he played so often Beamed to be written on his heart. The beautiful idea of home, the abode of earthly bliss, the nursery of virtue, the fountain of love ! Here patriotism finds its sanctuary, its true abode, its strong fortress. The comfort, the beau ty, the attractiveness of the home, its privacy and all its sanctities are to be studied and cherished, as embracing all of human good—whether public or pri vate. The green yard, the neat cottage, the magnificent elm—the growth cf cen turies, the beautiful evergreens, the creeping vine, the blushing flowers, the bright and promising children. Hampden. The man Lambert, who hung himself to a tree seme time lat t August, in the t iv. n of Dane, Dane connty, and whoso remains were found on Friday last, was driven to self destruction through re morse, it is thought. It is reported that about twelve years ago, when in Ger many, Lambert was poaching. The gam a keeper put a charge of shot into L's body, when L. turned and shot the game keeper dead. The prison held Lambert for ten years. Upon his release he came to this country. The story was told on him, and for some time before be took his life he appeared very melon-' caoly. THE HABIT OP HEADING. “I have no time to read,” is the com plaint, and especially of women, whose occupations are such as to prevent con tin* v book perusal. They seem to th ihu. t because they cannot devote as much attention to books as they are compelled to devote to their avocations, that they cannot read anything. It isn’t the books we finish at a sitting which always do us the most good. Those we devour in the odd moments, half a dozen at a time, often give us more satisfaction and are more thoroughly digested than those we make a particular effort to read. The men who have made a mark in the world have generally been the men who have in boyhood formed the habit of reading at every available moment, whether for five minutes or five hours. It is the habit of reading, rather than the time at our command, that helps us on the road to learning. Many of the most cultivated persons, whoso names have been famous as students, have giv en only two or three hours a day to their books. If we make use of spare minutes in the midst of our work, and read a little, if but a page or paragraph, we shall find our brains quickened and our toil lightened by just so much increased satisfaction as the book gives us. Noth ing helps along the monotonous daily round so much as fresh and striking thoughts, to be considered while our hands are busy. Anew idea from anew volume is like oil which reduces the friction of the machinery of life. What we remember from brief glimpses into books, often serves as a stimulus to ac tion, and becomes one of the most prec ious deposits in the treasury of our re collection. All knowledge is made up of small parts, which would seem insig nificant of themselves, but which, taken together, are valuable weapons for the mind and substantial armor for the soul. “Head anything continuously,” says Dr. Johnson, “and you will be learned.” The odd minutes which we are inclined to waste, if carefully availed of, will in the long run make golden hours and golden days that we shall ever be thank ful for. The Oyster. —Even the statistics of oysters are not without interest. They would seem to be the most fecund of the denizens of the sea; and for this ■ fact, surely, we should be fervidly grateful. Somebody has been lately studying the bivalve, and tells us, after careful ob servation, that “if every oyster in the sea were to spat every year, the sea would soon be filled up with oysters!” In the interests of commerce and the other fish es, we would fain hope that the tasty tribe will not wax quite to this extent; though if they would make a bridge for us from America to Europe, the legions of the sea sick would have one more rea son to bless the oyster’s existance. We may take it for granted that every oyster in the sea does not “spat” once a year. It is, however, boldly asserted by a no less scientific authority than Mr. Frank Buckland that a single oyster may contain, at one time, over 800,000 em byro oysters. Mr. Bucklaud, moreover avers that he has had in his possession “as many molluscous protoplasms as would have grown in time into 123,000,- 000 marketable oysters.” Thus there is no prospect whatever of a famine in this delightful food.. Every year the supply will become greater, and already their cheapness puts oysters within the reach of the pooer classes; and as they bring health and enjoyment at the same time, this fact is one which we may well re joice at.— Applsfon’s Journal. A Punctuation Puzzle.— The follow ing article forcibly illustrates the neces sity of punctuation. It can be read in two waysf making it a very bad or good man. The result depending upon the manner in which it is punctuated. It is well worth the study of teachers and pupils: He is an old and experinced man in vice and wickedness he is never found in opposing the works of iniquity he takes delight in the downfall of his neighbors he neyer rejoices in the prosperity of his fellow creatures he is always ready to assist in destoying the peace of so ciety Le takes no pleasure in serving the Liord he is uncommonly diligent in sow ing discord among his friends and ac quaintances he takes no pride in labor ing to promote the cause of Ohristanity he has not been negligent in endeavoring to stigmatize all public teachers he makes no effort to subdue his evil pas sions he strives hard to build up Satan’s kingdom he lends no aid to the support of the gospel among the heathen contri butes largely to the evil adversity he pays no attention to good advice hepays great heed to the devil he will never go to heaven he must go where he will re ceive the just recompense of reward. A citizen of Sedalia passing along N. H. Gentry's farm, saw a negro busily engaged in swinging a large fan over the prostrate form of a sow. He at once supposed that the negro was crazy and that he imagined that he was fanning his sweetheart, but the African soon ex plained matters. The sow was named the Duchess, a fine-blooded animal, purchased by Mr. Gentry, with two oth ers, the three coding him the sum of SI,BOO. She has sis pigs, and a negro man is constantly watching that the mo ther may not lay down on the little fel lows and kill them. The sow weighs between six and seven hundred pounds, and during the warm weather must re ceive the undivided attention of a waiter whose.duties are to sprinkle water on her and fan her. This will not amaze the reader, when he considers that the valne of the sow and her pigs is over 31,000. F ° According *o Democratic ethics it is right and sweet and beautiful for Demo crats to claim doubtful States for Tilden on meager and partisan testimony, but when Republicans claim them for Hares on much better evidence it is iufamous fraud, Radical rascality, etc. Demo crats are close reasoners. SEE TO THE STOCK. Be watchful of the stock. The frost has come and destroyed herbage. If the same pastures only are now used that the stock have been runing on all summer and no extra allowance is given them, they will soon begin to fail for the pastures are failing. It is wise to go into winter quarters fat and healthy. It is much eaiser to retain flesh, and then loose it. Hold on to all you have got and add more to it. If you only keep what you have, then yom* winter feed brings you nothing; but if you get pay for what you feed, in the improving condition of your stock—and here is where the provident farmer shows his wisdom. He gets pay for all he feeds. He is careful to loose no flesh, or fat from his stock in the winter, but to keep them improving, and thus pay for all his feed. He provides warm shelter, for he knows the more stock are exposed, the more food they require. The prospects for the stock grower are improving. We have learned how to ship safely and profitably, fresh meat to Europe. We are making constantly large shipments, and the meat reaches there in prime order. This will have a great effect upon our meat-producing interests. It will not be long before we will ship from New Orleans as well as New York. There will be an outlet at the north and south for our surplus meats. Every foot of our vast prairies north and south can be profitably used for grazing purposes. There is light ahead for the stock grower. Now let him improve his stock—get short horn males as soon as possible, that he may have early maturity, great size, and easy fattening qualities; and then he will be on the sure pathway to prosperity.— Coleman's Rural. The Wrong Procession. — As Old Si was standing at the White hall crossing, a darky with a striped shirt approached him: “How is you gwine to vote?” he asked old Si. “Pse gwine ter de poll an’ han’ my tickit ter de jedge.” “I mean who is you gwin ter vote for?” “Lookie heah, you ? I’se a law-’bid ding’ nigger!” “So is I, sah!” “Den de law sez who I votes fer is my bizniss solely, indevidgully an’ konse quenckully!” “Well, ef ye don’t vote de ’publican tickit we’s gwine fer ter spot yer ?

Sleep and Dbeamingl —Do we ever sleep without dreaming ? The question has been discussed both by ancients and moderns. Hippocrates, Plato, Leibnitz, Descartes, Cabanis, and other eminent physicians and philosophers take the affirmative. They hold, substantially, that it is the body which sleeps, the soul that dreams ; that the former needs rest and the latter does not ; that, while physically fettered, the soul’s natural expression is in dreaming. The soul be ing immortal, incapable, independent of stay or stop, must necessarily and per petually dream. Because we do not remember our dreams is no proof that we do not have them. Persons on wak ing will feel confident that they have not dreamed, and yet, during the day, some outward happening or passing thought will, by force of association, recall the dreams they had entirely forgotten. It is even questionable if dreams ever go entirely out of memory. They may not be recollected for a week, a month, or a year, but they are some time, though in so vague and shadowy a manner as to lose their identity. —Montreal Gazette. Don t Scake Mech.— Having plenty of apples and pears, but having no dog, a resident of Green Street stuffed an old suit of clothes and stood the effigy up in his back-yard to scare the wicked boys away. The plan seemed perfection for a while, but yesterday morning the “man” was discovered suspended to the limb of a tree by a rope tied to his heels. The coat-tails were cut off, the mouth filled with weeds, and the eyes and ears with mud, and the following note pinned to the body : “This ’ere feller has got the kolic offul bad. ” The big bell pears and the rosy red apples had been thin ned out until it looked like an off’ year for crops, and the boys were far away.— A ujust a Chronicle. Coloring Human Hair by Eajing Eggs. —The much vexed question, how to get gold hair, is solved at last. While the Germans shrink from being held a fair-haired nation, who knows, but the sufferers, what other nations have gone through to win the hair despised by Prussia ? Ladies have borne unheard of torments in pursuit of this fictitious gold. One who had to be turned round in the sun for hours during the process, bore with stoic fortitude the terrible headaches involved each week, nor ever complained of what she had to pay, though, after all, she was scarcely even electro-plated. Some run other risks, in robbing Teuton corpses of their long fair locks; and all is ineffectual while eyes and skin remains to give the lie to hair. Now, no more dyes, migraines or wigs will be neceessary. Everybody may sport the “glad gold hair”—nay, blue eyes, too, and snowy skin. All you have to do is to go and live on an island and eat penguins’ eggs—and the more you eat the fairer you will get. None need despair, for hair too dark to change to gold turns red, and red hair, being more the rage than flaxen, tant mieux. The isle in question is one of the Crozet group, on which survivors of the unfortunate Strathmore were wreck ed last year, and only rescued after six months’ durance vile. They had little but penguins’ eggs (and doubtless the eggs without the island would be of no avail), but the slight inconvenience of a sameness in food would bo readily en countered by the votaries of fashion. A survivor writes: “The eggs did every one a great deal of good. * * * A most remarkable thing was that every one had fair skins twd light hair, dark faces and hair being quite chaugedblack hair turning brown or red, and people quite flaxen.” If some enterprising En glishman does not immediately set up a hotel on this enchanted spot, we shall never give John Bull credit for knowing how to make his fortune. Shadowing Wives. — Some recent re velations of the operations of private de tectives have brought to light in New York the curious but suggestive fact that a considerable number of this class of policeman are steadily and profitably employed in watching, or “shadowing,” as it is technically called, wives and hus bands who arc suspected of infidelity and sometimes fast young men; not 31- ten indiscreet daughters are also follow ed and wached by the private detectives. The first class are, however, the principal objects of attention, and it is said that many a man and many a woman has been astonished by hearing or seeing a detailed report of their clandestine visits to suspicious houses, the length of their stay, and their movements subsequently all in detail. Divorce suits are often brought upon sworn statements of de tectives, and upon the testimony ob. tained by them. A good story is rela ted of Jim Fisk, Jr., who for many years had a private detective watching him at his own request for the purpose of preventingothers from doing the same thing. The Frie magnate used to test the faithfulness of his detective by ask ing him where he (Fisk) was at a certain hour, and, if the answers were correct, he would acknowledge it. He stopped the work about three months before he was killed, and if he had continued the service he might have been alive now, for if his guardian had seen Stokes there he would have suspected his object and placed Fisk on his guard. A Forgetful Man. —His wife sent him uptown for “sumthin’or ruther” early in the evening. On the way he met a friend, and they spent a half hour in an animated dispute, as to whether Hayes or Tildcn had the best chances for an election, and when he left his friend at the corner of Fourth and Vine streets, he had entirely forgotten what Maria had sent him after. It was in vain that he tried to tbink up his for gotten errand. For three long weary hours he wandered around from saloon to saloon, trying to stimulate his unre liable brain and prick up his memory. ’Twas no use. The more he stimulated the more he didn’t remember. He ha ted to go home and acknowledged as much to his wife, and so he just drop ped in on his friends to gather a little sympathy. After he had managed to scrape considerable of the article togeth er, and just as the clock on St. Xavier Church was chiming the midnight hour the telegraph editor opened a dispatch and remarked that the Associated Press announced the death of Dr. , the fa mous physician of . “By the jum ping Juniper Jubiter, I remember now,” said the visitor, rising slowly from his seat and turning as pale as a cholera pa tient, “1 remember now. My wife had the cramp colic and sent me to bring the doctor! D—n politics ! I wonder if she’s alive yet ?” And he shot out of the door after that doctor without wait ing to hear what was the outlook in New York. —Cincinnati Enquirer. Wearing Flannel.— The majority of people are not aware of the beneficial ef fects of wearing flannel next to the body both in cold and warm weather. Flannel is not so uncomfortable in warm weather as prejudiced people believe. Frequent colds and constant hacking coughs have left me since adopting flan nel garments. There is jio need of great bulk about the waist which condemns the wearing of flannel with those who prefer wasp waists, always fastening at the bj.ck There are scarcely any of the sudden changes of weather felt by those who wear flannel garments, and mothers especially should endeavor to secure flannels for their little people in preference to ail those showy outside | trimmings which fashion commends. A society has been formed in Siberia which compels all males to marry when of age, and makes the wife the head of : the family, and the husband a marked * subordinate.

The Liniment has saved my leg. I want to distribute it, &c.” Win. IT. Hickcox, Rector of St. John’s P.E.
