THE CRICKET FAMILY.
A Jolly old cricket lived down in a thicket. And with him his dame lived, too, Along with ten others, wee sisters and brothers, Who chirruped the whole day through. 'Twas chirp, chirp here. And chirp, chirp there Ail in the midsummer weather. ’Twas “cheer up, my pretties, Sing merry ditties, Let us be happy together," This jolly old cricket that lived in a thicket, Cried: '’Now for a rousing game; Per leap-frog’s in season, and that's a good reason To teach you, my pest, the same.’ Twas jump, jump here. And jump, jump there, All in the midsummer weather, Though some got a tumbl?, No one would grumble; Ah, they were happy together! This jolly old cricket lived down in the thicket, Till leaves were all gold and red; Says he: "There’ll be snowing; I feel the winds blowing; ( know a nice, cozy shed ” ’Twas skip, skip here. And skip, skip there. All in the blustering weather; But when the cold’s over, I Down in the clover, Still they’ll be happy together. —Frank H. Sweet WORDS TO HUNTERS. A New Interest Awakened by Conor tions in Hunting. The recently newly awakened in terest in the life and times of King Alfred, due to the celebration of the thousandth anniversary of his death aad the placing of a statue at his birthplace, has resuletd In some inter esting information on the evolution of the sportsman. One may see, by re viewing the customs and conditions of Alfred’s time, how it was that hunting came to be regarded as the noblest of all amusements. It was absolutely necessary to the safety and welfare of the people that the wolves, bears, wild boars and other dangerous animals whic* then roamed over England should be exterminated, and of course the kitg and his knights, as the bravest and best armed of the fighting population, were setting a good ex ample and doing good service in their hunting parties. These conditions continued for some hundreds of years and the nobility of the sport of hunt ing became firmly established and hedged about with many traditions as to the proper method of killing the game. The persistence of traditions ia England is proverbial, and hence, after the whole country became as safe as a barnyard, people continued to suppose that there was something essentially courageous and fine in deer stalking anil grouse shooting. The question now confronted by the intelligent American citizen is this, whether it is necessary for anew s9UHtry to take qver the Mvm and inventions of its pareht on this Sub ject. Are we to consider a nan a sportsman because he kills rabbits aad pigeons, as his father killed bears aad panthers? Is the man who takes his sport with rod and gun any more manly or brave than the one who arms himself with a camera or a micro scope? The Englishman would prob ably say yes, because he was brought p to believe so. The fact seems to be, however, that mere ability to go poping about with a gun does not constitute sportsman ship.

The idea that there is some peculiar man liness in shooting harmless animals is, let us hope, a vanishing illusion. MAN WITH BLACK WHISKERS. Scene in Georgia Court Room—Judge if Not Law Was Respected. Georgia han a stringent law forbid ding its citizens to carry pistols on pain of forfeiting the weapons and paying a fine of SSO or being Imprison ed for 30 days. Shortly after the pas sage of this enactment Judge Lester was holding court in a little town, when suddenly he suspended the trial of a case by ordering the sheriff to lock the doors of the court house. "Gentlemen,” said the judge, “1 have lust seen a pistol on a mna in this room, and I cannot reconcile it to my reuse of duty to let such a vio lation of the law pass unnoticed. I ought, perhaps, to go before tne grand iury and indict him. but if tnat man will walk up to this stand and lay his pistol and a fine of $1 down here, I will let him off this time.” The judge paused, and a lawyer sit ting just before him got up and slipped his hand into a hip pocket, drew out a neat ivory-handled six-shooter, and laid it with $1 upon the stand. “This Is all right,” said the judge, “but you are not the man I saw with the pistol.” > Upon this, another lawyer arose, and laid down a Colt’s revolver and a dollar bill before the judge, who re peated his former observation. The process went on until 19 pistols of all kinds, sizes and shapes lay upon the stand, together with sl9 by their side. The judge laughed as he complimented ed the 19 delinquents upon being men of business but he added that the man whom he had seen with the pistol bad 'not yet come up, and glancing at the far side of the court, he continued: “I’ll give him one minute to accept my proposition, and if he fans, 1 will hand him over to the sheriff.'’ Immediately two men from tne back of the court house arose and began to move, toward the judge’s stand. Once they stopped to look at each other, and then, coming slowly laid down their pistols and their dollars. As they turned their backs the judge said: “This man with the black whiskers is the one that I originally saw.”— New England Farmer. Rheun. avium 5.,.d the Eyes. Chicago, 111., Nov. 18.—Mr. R. A.
