Thk Power op Execution. Prof.
Griff.th, one of, the foremost elocution
ists iu the country, recently appeared be
fore a Quincy audience Among other
pieces he recited the well known little
poem, " Tweuty Years Ago." The poem
introduces two friends and schoolmates,
one of whom has been recently visiting
the od homestead, school-house, and
play grounds aud he gives his iinpres j
sions to his friend. When the ele-ocu-tiouist
reached the stanzas following, tiro
utterance was slow and thoughtful, as if
trying to recall the name of the old
play: : .
The boys were playing some old game be
neath that same old trne,

irentleman iu the back part of the house,
arose and said distinctly, " Muiubley

to the old man, that he thought he would

gesting the name. . Of course it brought
down the house.
What a Small Farm Will Dct.t
Tbose who desire to know how to utilize
to the highest degree every acre they
can cultivate, and to have on hand al
ways something for market, may get a
hint from the following Ukeu fruin an
Iowa paper: - - - ' -
Industry ami common sense are cer
tain guarantees . of success. Mr. Johu
Briscoe, in the Cedar Valley, Iowa, has
a farm of 3G acres. He raised last sea
son 19 acres of corn, of oats, 10 of
wheat, 2 of grass, ha!jn acre of pota
toes, aud half an acre iu broom corn,
beans, bops and cabbage, lie harvested
lOOU bushels of corn, 250 of oats, 1G7
of wheat. 200 of potatoes, 4 ton of Hun
garian grass, aud 2 tons of timothy hay ;
besides broom corn enough for 10 dozen
brooms, 1 1 bushels white beans, 700 head
of cabbage, and S7 worth of hops. Re
duced to currency, his summer's work
on thirty -six acres amounted to $1,016
50. Calling the land worth $20 per
acre, Mr. Briscoe could pay for his farm
and support bis family out of one season's

But the gentlemen had their overcoats
buttoned up to their chiti3, and the la
dies were enveloped in furs, and it was
too much like trouble to find their pocket
books or purses, just to supply a beggar's
wants. ,
"Go to the sonp house," said one. at
last, more churlish than the rest. " The
city provides fdr such as you."
It was a new idea to her, and as fast
as feet could cany her, she went, and,
entering in breathless haste, told her
story to the attendant matron.
"I will report th? case to the com
mittee," gaid the woman quietly, making
a memorandum of the name and numbe r
of street. ' Come in to-morrow morn

To morrowhe would become too
weak .to wane so far by that titue, and
what would become of the rest?
With a beavhca'rt,"fehe went home,
having no courage to present herself as

the greatest order rog ments of corks.
In the center was a manuscript written
by Pere la Loque. 'ii which he stated
that he had formerly een in possession
of considerable wealth, now squandered ;
that of all his greatness there remained
but theSe corks, drawn in better times to
welcome many a frieud.who now had
forgotten him ; that age aud ruin bad
tauuht their moral, r.d that on each
cork would be found written its history.
This the old nun did, hoping that it
would serve as a timely warning, and
that, placed on shelves of some museum
or of a philosopher's ttudy, they might
be found to illustrate human nature.
On one of the corks was au inscriptiou
to this effect : " Champagne cork ; bottle

The Eve uf the Needle. The
Scriptural smile, that it is easier for a
camel to go througthe eye of a needle
than for a rich man to enter the kingdom
of heaven, which has purled many a
learned head is clearly explained by a
modern traveler.
In the East all the walled cities have
a smll gate along side of the great gate,
which is called in figurative - language of
that region, " The eye of the needle."
When it is understood that the large
gates are closed at night, and that a trav
eller arrived afterward must euter thro'
the " eye of the needle," through which
he can take his camel, if he desires to'do
eo, only by divesting him of his burthen,
aulw causing him to kneel down, the
metaphor is clear au beautiful.
