THE HORRISTOf 11 GAZETTE
WEDNESDAY, JUNE 16, 1830. FOE THE YOUIIG FOLKS. SrEixa had come, ivith its buds and blossoms, warnr bright days and gentle showers, and the old app!e-tree at the end of the garden ir as putting on its new spring dress of green leaves and tiny pink buds, -which before long wonld open jntQ street blossojns, find, still .later turn, into ripe golden fruit, when a pair of Bobolinks came flying through the gar den one fine morning house-hunting, or rather looking for a nice place to build a nest and go to housekeeping. " Here is a good spot," said the little husband, whose name was Robert, perch ing on a limb of the apple-tree and pok ing his bill into a crotch formed by a crooked branch. " So it is," said Linny, his wife, "for thedeaves will soon be out and hide the nst from sight;" and they began t ch tter so fast about the- nice home they would have there, that it sounded like nothing but "Bobolink, bob-o-link, spink. spank, spink," so that two little guls who were playing with "their dolla under the tree said, 'J, What a poise those Bobo-links make! what are they chat tering fio about?" Hoon,4, however, they saw the little birdi flying back and forth,' b?ck and forth, with bits of hair and straw intheh bills, and then they said to one another, ' The Bobolinks are building a nest," find they hung pieces of cotton and bunches of .thread on the lower limbs of the tree, and watched to see Robert carry them oft" to weave into the outside of the nest, while Linny made a soft lin ing of hair inside. And at last the little homs was finished, and-three pretty eggs laid snugly inside; when one day, while Robert and Linny had gone to stretch their wings by a short flight around the garden, an ugly old Cuckoo, who had eon the Bobolinks flying in and out of tbs tree, came and laid a big egg in the nest; for Cuckoos are lazybirds, and never build, houses for : themselves, but f teal plates' to lay their eggs, and let somebody else take care oftheir chil dren. ' ' Now Robert and Linny had never been to school, and could not count ; so when they came back they did not no tice that there were four eggs in the nest instead of thr.ee, and Linny settled down on them, quite happy, while Rob ert sang a merry song to her, all about birds and flowers, and brought her nice fit worms and flies to eat, and was jast the best little Bobolink husband in the whole earden. And after a. while a faint waslieard, the eggs all cracked, and out came -four little blind birdies, without any feathers, and ugly, enough you would have said, but their papa and mamma thought them lovely, One, however, was as large as the other three put to gether, and took up so much room that Linny said: "Oh dear, we have made the nest to small! When the children grow larger, some will be crowded out." " That is strange," said Robert, "for it is the same size as the other Bobolinks Lave built, and they have plenty pf room." " Yes, but just see how big one of the babies is," said Linny. Just then Robert saw the Cuckoo on a tree nearby, winking one eye, andlairgh ing until her sides shook, and exclaimed: "I see how it is; that old thief of a Cuckoo has laid an egg in our nest. I will throw her ugly .child out, and she can look after it herself;" and he made a dive for the little Cuckoo, but Linny caught him by the tail-feathers, saying: "No, no; poor little fellow, he will die if you throw him on the ground. Let him stay until he gets too big for the nest." o the Cuckoo staid. But he was a very bad bird, for after a while, when he and the little Bobolinks got their eyes open, and had nice coats of feathers, he would peck at hs companions, and take away all the best bits of bread and fat test worms that their papa and mamma b-ought them home for dinner, and was so cross and greedy that Robert would have pitched him out on the grass if Linny had not begged he might stay a little longer, and tried to make him be have better. The apple-tree was covered with pink and white blossoms, which grew around the little nest and made it like a bower. And now the birdies were learning to fly. and could go to the outer branches of the tree, where they sat in a row, while their father taught them how to sing. ' 'Ik)b-o-link, bob-o-link, spink, spank, spink," - sang Robert. And the little ones who could not speat plain, all re peated, "Bob-o-link, bob-o-link, pink, pank, pink 'all except the biggest bird, who would say, "Cuckoo, cuckoo," in a harsh voice. At last, one day, Robert said, "Now, children, vou are old enough to leave the tree, and to-dav vou must begin to ro a little wav into the erarden." 4;Ves." said their mother, "but take rare, and never sit on the ground, for there is a great yellow cat who will siirplv fat'.vou ur." "We will be verv careful," said the little Bobolinks. After Billy, Bobby, and Jenny, as well as Cuckoo, had had their feathers brushed nice and smooth, they were eentont to try their wines; but the Cuckoo was stronger, and could fly farther than the Bobdlinks. Bobby flew over the fence to see what wn nn the r other side, and the first thing he spied was the yellQW cat creep ing slowlv alone, and she fixed her eyes right on nim. lie tried to flyback, but just then the Cuckoo came behind him, and irave him a rmsh which sent him flutter- ini? to the eround. risht in front of Mrs. Pussie. Poor Bobby gave himself up for lost;' but as the cat was about to spring on him, a great dog came bounding across the yard," which sent the cat scampering off in a hurry, and saved Bobby, who hastened home as fast as his little wings could carry him. "Pshaw?" said.the Cuckoo; "I thought there would be one out of the nest. But there ia the cat under a bush, and Jenny is tilting on a twig just above, without neeing her." So the naughty bird flew to the rose bush, and said, JJ enny, you look as if vou were having a race time. ' : " I am," said Jenny, " but don't come to this twig, it won't hold you." "Oh yes, it will," said Cuckoo, leaning . on the slender spray, which broke, and niiic.k aVlirrhtninz the cat seized and rarriod her off in her mouth. v"ila, ha, ha," laughed the Cuckoo; inere, W1U U room 1U iu ucoii uun. Jut. at that moment the two little girls came oat of th house, saw the cat with "the: bird, and made her drop Jenny on the grass. She was not much hurt, and they carried her gently back to the apple tree, and gave her to her papa and . mamma. The Cuckoo then went to look for Billy; but as he was passing the flower garden he saw a juicy white angle worm lying in a bed of violets, and feel ing nungry, stopped to take a little lunch. " The worm was very nice, and Cuckoo enjoyed it very much, when, just as he was swallowing the last morsel, the cat came stealing softly from under a wood P"f5&d thinking if birds could lunch on worms, 6he could lunch on birds, pounced upon Cuckoo, and carried him off; and-nothing more was ever seen cf him, except a few feathers scattered near th door of the wood-shed. These Billy naw, and went home to tell the sad tory. Where Booth Is Barled. The Washington cortespondent of the Buffalo Commercial writes: It was only after some patient inquiry that I could ascertain the facts, which are interest ing, and sofar as 1 know are yet unpuln lished. Booth died, as will be remem be red, in a ' barn in Maryland, from a wound received from the rmisketof Boston Corbett. His body was brought to Washington a"hd after having been identified by the court "martial Te fore whom his fellow-conspirators were tried, was dissected by the Surgeon General of the army. The brain and heartand sorre other. parts of the Jbody.. were ' preserved in alcohol, and are now on exhibition at the Medical Museum of the Surgeon General's office. The building in which the assassination occurred was Ford's Theater. The Government confiscated it, but afterward Ford was paid its full value, and it has since been used as the headquarters of the medical corps of the army. The brain and heart of Booth are in jars, standing in a case that is situated very near the actual scene of the assassination. - After the surgeon had done with Booth's body, it was buried in a grave in the Arsenal grounds. Only half a a dozen persons knew the exact spot, which was unmarked. In 1867 Edwin Booth, the actor, sent Mr. Weaver, the sexton of Christ's Church, Baltimore, to Washington, with a request that the re mains of his brother might be taken up and removed to the family bvirial place. After some delay the reqdest was granted by President Johnson, who was finally appealed to, and Mr. Weaver took the body to the cemetery in Balti more and buried it beside the elder Booth and others of the family. The removal was conducted with great se crecy, and was concealed from Secretary Stanton, who had refused to give his consent. 1 ' Lo and the Telephone The Rochester Democrat sftys: The three Indians connected with Buffalo Bill's combination were seated around the Waverly House stove last evening, when George Mills, the gentlemanly clerk, asked Spotted Horse if he ever talked through a "telephone. The In dian replied that he had not, when George called up the central office, and the redskin took the phone in his hand. He waved it around his head three or four times, and endeavored to throw off tie strings, when he was given to under stand that they belonged to the instru ment. He placed it to his ear and was then told to gently remark, "Hello." He did so, but the remark was so gentle that no one present heard it, and he was told to repeat it. He did so, this time much louder, however; but the word sounded little like the "hello" as heard through this part of the coun try. The young man in "the central office replied. It was heard by the In dian, and with a movement which was almost too quick to be seen, he jirked the telephone from his ear and looked at it. He was assured that everything was all right, and placed it to his ear again. The young man was talking in the central office, and Lo commenced to . . . j i- e grin. J.ne grin cna not leave ins iace except for a moment or two, once or twice, when he glanced suspiciously at a reporter standing near, to make sure that it was not the innocent scribe that was doing the talking in his ear and was rK V;;, TTion In. lrron tn rollr It was part Indian and part English, and if tne young man in tne main omce un derstood him he should have his salary raised at once. Spotted Horse talked for about five minutes, when Mr. Bur gess, the interpreter, told him that he wouia ure me lusitumeiii uuir, mu hug Indian dropped it and joined his com rades in a smoke on five-cent cigars. A Chance for Work. Burdette, writing from Canada to the Burlington HawJceye, says: One morn ing I walked out by myself. All along the marsh road the farmers were busy in tne meaaows moving aim miumj their hay. A couple of regularly- ordained tramps, idle and aimless as mvself, and much better acquainted with the road, passed me, and I tagged along in their lounging wake. Presently the voice of a farmer came over the sweet-scented meadow: "Hallo!" The tramps halted. " Hallo yourself !" shouted one of them. "Do you want to hire?" yelled the farmer. Judge of my astonishment when both tramps chorused back : "Yes!" Well, I thought, they aren't American tramps, any how, or they wouldn t dis grace the profession in this way. But I stood still to listen and watch, for it was an unusual sight two tramps going to work. "Then come over here!" yelled the farmer; and the two fellows sprang oyer the fence and trudged across the meadow with the brisk air of men who really wanted work and meant business. Ihe fanner stood still, leaning on his pitch fork, srazinff intently at my motionless fierure. Presently his voice broke the 6ilencc once more: j Don't that other fellow want to hire, too?" he yelled. - ! The two tramps turned and glanced at at me for my reply. I shook my head sadly but firmly, and moved on, without waiting to hear the farmer s muttered comments on my laziness. An American may die, but he never works. An Elephant's Hot Cake. This story is from a letter written by a gentleman in India. The writer says: "One day two -ladies were watching some elephants being fed near their camp in tne jungles oi me wuum Provinces, when tne eiaer oi me two took into her head to offer one of tne plpnhants a verv hot chanatti. which is a cake made of flour and baked on the fire over a thin plate and consequently, when iresn maae, is Durumg juuv. uj.uai.w are usually fed with these twice a day, but they are always allowed to cool be fore being given.

No woman was fever known to marry a man whose first remark upon being in troduced to her was about the weather ALABAMA girls are the shyest about eloping. One of them waited until she was seventh-nine, before she felt equal to it. According to the English idea, every woman who hasn't a face like a full moon is hatchet-faced, and not even passably good looking.

Teaching Him a Lesson. A New York city "masher" was made pretty sick the other day. He saw a pretty'Newark girl shopping on Broadway, wrote her a note asking ac quaintance, and had it delivered while she sat in the Jersey City depot waiting for a train for Newark. She took it home unopened, and gave it to her father, with whom she took counsel as to the best means of exposing the youth. They arranged that she was to answer the latter favorably to the formation of an acquaintance, but expressing fear of her parent's anger, and the importance of secrecy, bhe agreed to meet him in Military Park, Newark, on a certain even ng. He was there, and she and her aunt walked near and taw him, but didn't' let him see them, and the young lady afterward wro'e ih:it she was sick and couldn't come. He had reproached her for disappointing him, but took it all back, and she agreed to meet him in the park on Friday evening Her pa rents invited some guests; the young lady wen. to the park and brought the young man to the hou.-e, and they iutro ducedhim to a parlorfull of company as "a fair specimen of a New York lady masher. ' He will avoid Newark here after. The Dark Stock in Ireland. A cood deal is said about "the dark stock" prevailing' in the west and southwest of Ireland. But one of the chief sources of that element is entirely overlooked, probably because too recent and too obvious to arrest tne attention of the paleolithic tnd neolithic ethnolo gists. The source in question is the Spanish, due to the close commercial and even social intimacy maintained by Spain with the west coast of Ireland down to quite recent times. There were important Spanish trading stations at Dingle, Valentia, Cahirciveen, Bantry, Timoleague, Galway and elsewhere. Many of the -old houses in these places are built in the Spanish style, and it may be generally known that Valentia Island was actually held by the Span iards until expelled during the vigorous administration of Cromwell. Many of the peasantry in Kerry and Galway bear unmistakable Spanish expression, and this faction ought certainly to be taken into account in dealing with the compli cated problem of Irish ethnology. Natue. A Mountain Industry. The industry of quarrying mill-stones along the Shawangunk Mountain, in the vicinity of Alligerviile, and through that section for a number of miles, has become quite a large business. - These stones in .some cases are very large, measuring in diameter oftentimes live to six feet and weighing as high as four tons. After being lifted from the quarry, they are rounded by workmen and a hole drilled through the center for the axle. They are extremely hard and flnty, so that the hardest kinds of instruments have to be used in working on them, which work is entirely dono by hand, by the hammer and point. The ordinary tools used in the blue stone business would be pointless after one or two clips on this hard, gritty rock. The principal shipping place is Alligerviile, and one of the dealers at present has a cargo of stone awaiting shipment on his dock. They are principally used as grinding stones in grist-mills and for grinding cement. The Earth Do Move. A drunkard is staggering along the TnVvards. knocking against lamp-posts, and, with great dignity and earnest ness, solving the problem how to be in two places on the sidewalk at once. The passers stare at him and laugh till he foito .nii with a nainful effort, collect- himself, savs: " Galileo wash right the earth doesh move!" and crumbles into shapeless ruin upon the pavement.

The Russian proverb which predicts evil for tfic reign of any Czar which overpasses twenty-five years has been cu riously sustained by the facts of history. Ivan the Terrible enjoyed twenty-five years of prosperity on the Imperial throne. In the twenty-sixth year of his reign his troubles bean. His conquests were wrested from him; he lost three successive wives and his son and heir was murdered. Feter had twenty-five years of substantial prosperity, but the ten closing years were shrouded in gloom. Alexander I was among the most fortu nate sovereigns until he had crossed the fatal line. In the twenty-sixth year of his reign the liver Neva overflowed frightfully, St. Petersburg was threat ened with destruction, and a widespread conspiracy was formed against the Czar himself. He left his capita', sick at Wirt tjn difi in the distant Crimea. His hrnthpr Nicholas beiran the Crimean war in the twentv-sixth year of his rpio-n. and bo lost his prestige, and soon thereafter his life. Finally, it was as he aPDroached the end of a quarter century on th throne that disasters began to thwdrAn around the present Czar. Ihe news of his violent death would not now be anvwhere received with surprise, so srreat is the internal aisoraer oi nis uo- minion. How Do loa Account for This!

Filtering a druggists store in Saeo one evening, I inquired the way to the house ot a man who carneu on business near by.
