Quilling Tobacco. The following letter is worthy of a careful perusal. It certainly suggests some facts which deserve the most serious reflection : Did you or any of vour readers ever try quitting tobacco? Well, if j you did, you know how to pity a feller that's been in the worse troub le for the last week than he's had . for many long year. And if you i never did, you ought to try it once just to be able to sympathise with ; other folks. Tell you what it is, it's j a leetle the hardest job I've under- taken since I tried to make rails out 1 of a black gum when I was a boy Talk about your rheumatiz. corns, j and toothache ! I'd rather have them all than this hankering for to backer. It was worse nor thirst for ! whisky. I quit that easy, but to hacker ! You'd as well try to shake off a leach that's just began to draw, j as to get clear of this infernal Oh ! I beg pardon ; this in in intolera- j ble appetite ! But I must tell you how I come ' to quit. You see, I had been using the weed for nigh on to twenty years, and had begun to think that I could get along about as well with out isetsy- trial s my ow woman, you know, as to do without my twist and my pipe. But I took sick this t5cclfueous. summer and was ailing a longtime, j whether a Congressman who cannot Granny Miller said I had the dys-'; conscientiously keep the back pay pepsiat (Did you ever have it? recently votetl, can properly take it If you did, I know I am sorry for ; and give it away. The only argu you.) Well, Granny fixed up some ' ment we have seen advanced ina roots and yarbs and gave me to take ; ; vor of thi . method of disposing of but it did no good. So says 1 to ; - 1 myself, Granny don't know what's hurt the feelings of other Congress the matter with me, and I'll just men who are willing to pocket the step over to Joe Higgins' and bor- money. But why save the feelings row his doctor book and see if 1 1 of t hese gentlemen ? If they can be can't find out. Well, I hunted for j made ashamed of themselves, the dyspepsia and read it all over, and j sooner it is done the better. I concluded that I had that ; but I ; Another suggestion is made that read on. Well, I read ovor several , Congressmen may omit to take the other diseases, and I concluded I money without making the fact pub had them too. So says I, "Betsy, I ; lie.

Well, after a considerable time here comes Jim and the doctor. Well, Bill," says 1m, "what's tbe matter?" "I don't know, doctor," says I. "I believe I've got the dys- pepsia, heart dysease, broueitis, j the person who bore the expenses of i eral'lists, which shall be subscribed ; neglect without good cause to ap neuralgia, and I believe I'm taking the last illness and burial of the by tbe commissioners, one of which pear as provided, shall for every the consumption."

So, I had to think that tiie doctor knowed all about it; but I wouldn't promise to quit. The doctor wasen't pleased a bit. Howsomever, he gave me some stuff to take that was mean enough to make a sow wean her pigs before they were a week old, but it didn't do on bit of good. Thinks I to myself, if I've got to have all the rest of the diseases heart-burn especially and take such truck as this, Tm a goner sure! So, as I couldn't get clear of the dyspepia, and Betsy wouldn't let me off with the physic, I concluded I'd quit the tobacker. Well, I made the resolution ; and you know, when a man sets his head to do a thing, it's half the battle generally. I say generally, for this time il wasen't so. I thought it was a mighty task to say Fd quit ; but it wasn't a circumstance ! No matter how I would reason, the cra ving was there, and there it would stay. Needn't say a word about logic ; I tell you it won't do at all when this longing for tobacker is the question. Just as well try to talk a baby to sleep when its mammy's been gone all day and it wants to suck right bad as to think that argu ment will do any good against the love of tobacker. It takes strong will and time to do it ! I could let it alone ; for that thing never came along that I couldn't let alone when I resolved to ; but the appetite was eternally wanting it. I have read about a man chained to a rock and a vulture turned on him to eat him up. If he had some tobacker to chaw, and didn't have some one to say stop, he was better olf thau me. Howsomever I consoled mj-self that it would soon be proven that it wasen't the tobacker, and then I could go at it again. But, in spite of all I could do, I couldn't help feeling that the doctor must be right for I never had the heartburn from ! the time I throwed away my last , cfy.iv.'! I ate sweet potatoes (they ! Avere alwaj-s sure to bring it before) ' but it wouldn't come. I tried fat j pork, but I was all right. I even ! tried butter and sorghum, and that wouldn't fetch it. So I just came to i tbe conclusion that I wa3 all right in my liver and was only diseased j with tooacker ; and so I expect to i I stay quit. j As I suppose 3'ou will like to hear how I git along. I'll write again be fore a great while. Bill Jones. Wlij Not Denounce Grant ?

"Any which "Epis copalians." "Episcopalians ! Wall, w.; don't exactly know. My John he's my son ho see some thin' out'n the corn-field yesterday. He did&'t really know what it Was, but I told him I guessed it was a chipmonk. But now you speak out, I'll bet it was an Episkerpalium. And my next neighbor, Farmer Hawkins, he said he shot at somethiu' that fame day that John seen his strange orit ur, and Farmer Hawkins h i thought it was some wild oritur thai had got out of some managcry somewhere. Anyhow, I think that's a Episker palium too. Be they bigger'n a chipmonk?" "You misunderstood me madam." "Wall, you needn't feel oneasy. Ef there's any Fisker paliuras in this here neighborhood, yon can just make up your mind that they'll git shot ! We are too feelin' a community to let things run at large which mout destroy and devour somebody. Come in, won't you?"

Le is resist ed, and finally succeeded ii carry ing his point, through a the ex pense of a torn coat and 2 bruised arm. For this injury to person and property he brought suit before a J 1. st ice to recover damages, and Thursday last the case was decided in his favor. An appeal was ef course taken by the railroud, and it is beleived the case will go to tho Supreme Court, where it t ill be de cided whether the act of i te Leg is - la;ure limiting fores to ti re per mile is, or is not, const .ti Th Wheeling R , haa the right pronunciation U Hits. a Hartford jail Dcltrum tremens ini land life insurance col A
