In 1R51 I made a tour with a party of friends through the picturesque and beautiful country of Switzerland. We left Geneva by boat, arid proceeded to Yilleneure, situated at the other ex tremity of the Lake, where we took carraics to Martigny. The paa of the Tcte Noire is one of the most remarkable in the world. High, precipitous mountains, covered with firs, ariso on either hand, revenl in a deep, dark chasm, into whose depths it is impossible for a traveler to gay.e without turning dizzy. At its bottom wends a little Ktr .in of water, caused by the drippings from the sides of the mountains, and in the wet sra n, when swollen by rains it assumes the proportion of a gigantic torrent, as it dances alof2 in idtly swiftness and is lost in the. valley below. The road at this point is but a mere bridle-path, over which it is impossi ble for wheeled vehicles to pass, and is hewn in the olid rock on the moun tain side. The sun never shines in the ravine, nor dries with its warm rays the rank Wet sides of the defile. From the Tete Koire it was a gradual descent until we reached the vVlley at the head of Mont Plane, and where stands th pretty little villageof Chamouni. One morning, shortly after our ar rival, Madame B., one of our party, and myself started alone to visit Mer Wo (ilaee, onio tifteen miles distant. Passing several parties of excursionists, we had accomplished nearly half the distance when we stopped at the door of a pretty vine-clad cottage for a driwk f the cool water which was gurgling alonjr; in a little stream near by. A stout, hard-looking man of al-out 6" was engagedj in planting flowers in a nest little garden, ami in answer to ur request for a drink of the spark 'linjp; water, entered the cottage, ami returned bearing a pitcher of it, with which we allayed our thirt. ? While thus engaged, I noted that he ; kepi eyiug my companion closely, find at we were about moving off, he said : " Are-you not Madame B., who twen ty rears ag visited this Chamonni, and had for youfguide Pierre Blan ch?" " Yes," replied my companion. 41 I1 am she, and in you I recognize my old faithful Pierre, the preserver of my I life." 5 " Ah, mad a me," ald he, seizing her ; band and holding it between his rough , palms, while tears rolled down his ; cheeks, " I have longed for years that this time might come, when I should u i i . . t . r . , be able to thnk my beittsfactress for the bleslng she has heaped upon me. Come here, Marie," cried e to a ma- tronly-looking woman who stxd in the door of the cottage, 44 come here ani kiss our benefactress' hand. She Is the gotnl angel who has been the eause of all our comforts, and for whose safety w have" prayed for twenty year.' "Stop, Pierre," said madame, eni- barrassed, but not displeased at his c x- pression ofgnititude; 44 you must po llect that it is I, not yon, who am the obliged party. To you I owe my life, for you preserved it one whea in iru iralBot danger, and mj husband mare- ly bestowed on you a present fur your j faithfulness and devotion in the hour j wf triaL" l "But," . continued Pierre, with ! warmth, 41 Monsieur's gift enabled ine ! to buy tlm little ,lu-e, and In leave ! the perilous life of a guide, and to mar- J ry ray dear Marie, whom before that I j could not wtd, as I had no home for j . , , Amid the blessing of Pierre and his u.'ift wt rrwl fiff Vnr utru JLhnwu I - v.w.. s we pursued our way in silence. AtHiltew thun j ditJ at Umt ti AU u : length Madame B. said " You must think thesene you have j just witnessed a very strange one ; the j gratitude of this simple-hearted peas ' ant and my emotion at seeing him must have struck you as singular; and now that I have mastered my feelings, : I will relate to you, if you wish, the ' circumstances under which he saved I in v life." Jvigerly signifying my assent, and owning that the etlecting scene had ! greatly excited my curiosity, she con- ; tinued as follows : ) j " Twenty-.two years ago next spring ; I was married to Monsieur B. in Paris, j and immediately started on an exte5l- cd wedding tour. Switzerland w-as in our route, and having visited Berne, Constance, and (ieneva, we came hi re. My husband, on the recommendation of a friend, who was about, returning i to Pari-s engaged Pierre Blaneot as ,'our guide, and a well-informed one he proved to be. Not only did he know . all the places of interest in the neigh- borhood, and take delight in poiuting i out the best views in the lovely land ! scape, but his strength was such that he would lift me in and out of the sad dle and help me over the dangerous places, as though I were an infant in his brawny arms. " One day we made the trip we weie making together, when an accident be ; fell me, which resulted quite seriously. "After walking a good distance on '. the Mer de (.ilaee, we started to return to the house, and were obliged to cross several huge blocks of ice. Pierre was : in front with a hatchet, cutting little steps for us to de-cend by, when, in some unaccountable m inner, I slipped i and strained my ankle severely. The ; pain was intense; so that I could not walk, and was obliged to be carried back to Chamouni. " For several weeks I kept my room, , but at last, feeling much better, we 1 started on an excursion to an old saw I mill, from which, an exceedingly fine ; view was to be obtained. I " Unable to mount a mule, my hus band procured for me one of those cur-i-ious vohicles we met to-dav, called a 4 char-a-banc' You notice how com fortably they are made for rough roads, being nothing more than a long spring board extended from the forward and hind wheels, on whirh is fastened a seat, in which the passen- ger sits sii'eways. Well, Pierre carried j me down and seated me in the ehar-a- banc,' mounted a kind of box there is front, and we started off. My husband, armed with a stout Alpine staff, walk - ed at our sid for a while, when, saying that he knew of a short cut over the mountain, he left us, promising to ar- rive at the old mill befere us, and have our lunch in readiness. " Alas, he little dreamed of the dan- ger I would be placed in, or the won- derful escape from death I should ex- perience before we again met. 41 After following for several miles tho old bed of a stream in the valley, ! w e entered a dark gorge, and com- menee the ascent. The seenerv was 'llot picturesque. On either side were heavv masses of fir tres, and the ground apjeared carpeted with beauti ful mountain flowers, ho numerous in this district. I have forgotten thename of the mountain we w ere ascending, but I recollect well the loveliness of the road. At last we crosseii a foaming. . angry torrent, and commenced follow- I ing it to its source, for it w as on this j stream that the 'null was situated. j "The road was.huilt on the top of j the eliir overhanging the water, and j so narrow that it was imj-ossible for j lwo wheeled vehicles to pass. At in- ! tenals a place was excavatetl m the i . if . . -. ... ' Utnk for parties ging up to wait until ! parties descending had passed by. ! 44 The old mill was m mated high a- hove at the distance of about a mile. ! and Pierre had just pointed me out its ! ; s'te, when he uttered an exclamation j of surprise, and, jumping from the box, j j ran a few yards in front. Looking in j the direction he had taken, I saw a j ! sight which curdled the blood in my ; veins, and appeared to freeze my heart, j i 44 Coming around a curve in the road, : and verv near to us, was a runaway ! mule, attached to a load of iumkr, w hich, striking his heels as he bounded along, goaded hiui onward in his mad flight- Tha danger of mj- situation flaslj OIi niv miml in an in,tant.

I knew that at the mill was my good husbar.d, anxiously look- ing out for us, and I grieved to think how horror-stricken he would be when word was taken to him of my fearful death. " Hut all at once a ray of hope er tered my heart, and I comprehended I why Pierre had left the box so sudden i A natural result of the spread of ly. There he stood, firmly braced, in infidelity, :md the weakening of the the center of the road, a few rods in foundation principles of. morality, is front of in watching, with the most witnessed in iermany, where the nuni intense earnestness, every motion or! her of criminals had increased from the enraged mule who, with glaring eye-balls and distended nostrils, appar ently unconscious of all save his ex- f trenie terror, was tearing down upon him with an almost irresistible power. At last (I say at last, for the few sec- onds that brief scene o -upied seemed to me like ages), they met. Like an avalanche did the infuriated mule come against Pierre, who, instead of being overthrown aa I expected, by a skillful display of his immense strength, hurl- ed the mule from him, over the preci pice, into the depths below. 44 1 had, at the instant of the colli sion, closed my eyes. I heard the crashing and tumbling of the mule and wagon as they went rolling down the steep bank into the water, 200 feet be low, and, realizing that I was saved, the revulsion of my feelings was such that I fainted. w hen l recovered my senses, which I did in a short time, I found myself in my husband's arms, had, from a distance, witnessed event, and hurried to my side." .on Disease of Lambs. There is much complaint of loss of lambs from what appears to be, in most cases, -worms in the lungs. The dis ease is known by different names in different localities. The worms also lodge in the bowels, when the result is scouring. To cure the disease the worms must be driven from both lungs and bowels. To rid the lungs of them, put the lambs in a closed shed or room, then burn : Flowers of sulphur, one-half pound. Pine tar, one quart. Mix with tow or cotton rags, and burn slowly. The moke arising is breathed into -the lungs by the sheep,; 1 and expels; the worms. The room j should not be too small, and care J should be taken that the fumes from j - the burning sulphur should not get I too dense. When both lungs and ) bowels are affected (w hich may be as- certained by examination of a carcass; ' dislodge the worms by administering j Sulphate of magnesia, six ounces. Nitrate of pota h, four ounces, 1 Pour on these three pints of boiling I water, and when it becomes milk j warm, add ! 0il turpentine, four ounces. Bole Armeiac, half an ounce. Mix well, and give three or four tk blespoonfuls every other day. Another remedy is: Common salt, three pounds. Powdered ginger, one half jound. Nitrate of potash, one half pound. Dissolve in three gallons of warm water, and, when -nearly cold, add Oil turpentine, twenty-four ounces. (live of this one wineglassful at a dose to lambs four to six months old. As preventive when lung worms prevail throughout the summer and fall, give oitce In two weeks to the flock: j Oil turpentine, two ounces. Powdered ;gentian, two ounces. ,.,. ... 1 Dissolve m one quart of linseed tea ( 1 . I r ln"e WiiteI"' 1 hls v.nuanllty l! j enoun for twelve doses.

He ljUntt(1 for nH,n in thc 8Ummer and trapped for fur in the fall and winter. He knew everv river aud creek, every hill and valley in the great wood better than you know the streets of the town ; and he had studied the cunning ways and bright tricks of the beaver, otter, mink and marten, until he knew just where and how to set traps for them. He bought a good many t-kins of the Indians wholived near; and early every year he would take a large load of them to the nearest trading-poet to sell bringing back powder and. with teas sugar and other good things for his table. The hunter's life isn't half so tine m the Rtorv-booka make it but old Thomas JutKon for that was his name enjoyed it better than any other.

He skated to near the j sjjI, along the -Lore. of the lake, and then took off his -kales and put on hi snow-shoes to travel over the deep snow a mi or so into the w oods.
