Treasure in a Tree's Heart.
In thle southern part of this county, in Newlin's township, about ten days ago, .i, Whoody contracted with a colored man, ;lh.liraimtn Alston, to have some rails split. Near a school house Woody had allowed the pulpils to cut a tree and use the top for li.ewooi. Ephraim went to work upon :io, butt cut of this tree, splitting it into ;:ail. When it had been quartered the ,ext thing was to heart each section, as l"r:,.tic:al rail-splitters understand. In do iFg the latter act he struck a regular bo airaz:, :and twenty-six pieces of gold coin Iell out. These coins were concealed in ;l inch and a quarter auger-hole, over whli h the tree had grown, in thickness :about four inches. On the outside no traces ~f the hole could be seen. From the ,,wtih of the tree since the boring of the hl, it is supposed that the coins were put there not later than 1812. The diameter of the tree was about two feet.-Almance Y \. ('.) Wleaver. New Table Etiquette. It is with a view of elevating the popu i:ar taste and etherializing, so to speak, the manners and customs of our readers, that we give below a few hints upon table eti qu(tte : Macaroni should be cut in short pieces, rand eaten with an even, graceful motion, not absorbed by the yard. Oranges are held on a fork while being p)e(led, and the facetousstyle of squirting the juice into the eye of your host is au Stones in cherries and other fruit should not be placed on the table cloth, but slid quietly and unostentatiously into the pocket of your neighbor, or noisily under the table. If by mistake you drink out of your finger bowl, laugh heartily and make soime facetious remarks, which will change the course of conversation and renew the freindly feeling among the members of the part.y. In drinking wine, when you get to the hot.om of your glass do not throw your head back and draw in your breath like the exhaust of a bath-tub in order to get the last drop, as it engenders a feeling of the most depressing melancholy among the guests. If you cannot accept an invitation to supper, do not write your regrets on the back of a pool check with a blue lead pen cil. This is not regarded as ricochet. A simple note to your host informing him that your washer-woman refuses to relent is sufficient. On seating yourself at the tab!. draw oll' your gloves and put them in your lap under your napkin. Do not put them in the gravy. If you have just cleaned your gloves with benzine, you must leave them out in the front yard. Vivisection. By far the best article upon the vexed issue of vivisection, or no vivisection, is in the current Nineteenth Century, from the pen of Sir James Paget. Confining his arguments to English statistics, Sir James reports that the annual deaths from chloro form in this country used to be about twenty. They were, probably, not more than one in every 30,000 of persons to whom it was given: but they were intol erable to those who felt in any measure responsible, though blameless, for them, and many went back to the use of ether, which is safer, though less convenient. Probably less than one in 50,000 die of it; but I saw one die to whom it was fault lessly given, and he was so good and generous a man that I felt it would have been right to kill a hundred animals either to save his life or find out why he died, and to be able in the future to avert so aw ful a catastrophe. It is in reflection on uses such as this, in which lives are lost or health is impaired for want of knowl edlge which seems to be within reach of experimental study, that medical men of science feel justly impatient of the re straints put upon these researches. They know that such knowledge as they want hasot'ten been gained by experiments on animals; they know that the experiments made in this country are, both severally and in their total, far less pain-giving and far more useful than are either the shoot ilg, hunting or fishing practiced by many, and encouraged by nearly all of the best people in the land; they see all around them mere luxuries of dress and furniture, gathered at immense cost of pain and misery, and perhaps only a little more use ful than might be obtained from animals killed for necessary food; and yet they find themselves selected for legislative re straint and still exposed to public and pri vate charges of vile cruelty, abused in sen sational meetings, and as much as possi ble, hlinderedl in the studies which even legislation would permit. ---··-----____- -- L-- 1 T.
