The time of battle was five minutes. From a scien il ic point of view, Norton was pronounc ed a remarkable boxer. After the fight IIussey, the backer of Frawley, said to lichlard K. Fox : "I claim the stakes for Frawley, on the grounltlds that Norton committed a foul by hitting I'rawlcy twice when he was down." "I will abide by the decision of the ref ''(rCe," replied Fox, ''and pay over the mon 'y to Norton." "If you do, I'll sue you," said Hlussey.

Then I shall invite a gentleman of the audience to work a sum on the board, and to commit intentional errors, which you will observe, the boys will in stsntly detect. John Smith, open the book Sand read the first question ! The scholar obeyed and read out: 'Add fifteen-sixteenth and nine-elevenths.' The teacher turned to the audience and sd aid: 'Now Supervisor - , will you step to the blackboard and work it out ?' The Supervisor hesitated, then said: 'Certainly,' and advanced a step, but p:aus ed and asked the teacher, 'Is it fair to put the children to so difficult a prob lem ?' '1, Oh. never fear,' replied the teacher, 'they will be equal to it.' 'Very well,' said the supervisor, 'gd on.' The boy began the question: 'Add fifteen six I1 teenths-' 'No, no !' said the supervisor, 'I will not be a party to overtaxing the children's brains. I have conscientious scruples d against it. This forcing system is ruining d the rising generation !' and he gave back the chalk and left the room. 'Well, Judge Castleton, will you favor fa us ?' asked the teacher, tendering the chalk. 'I would do so with pleasure,' replied the judge, but I have a case corming on in my court in a minute or two,' and he left. 'Assessor Middleton, we must fall back on you,' said the teacher, smiling. 'Oh,' said the assessor, 'I pass-I mean I decline in favor of Collector X.' 'Well, that will do,' replied the teacher; 'Mr. Collector, will you favor us?' A 'I would certainly--that is-of course,' r replied the'collector, 'but--ahem ! I think Fra 1it should be referred to a commit-why, bless me! I'll never catch it. Good bye! Some other time! And he left. 'I know Justice Southfield will not re- i fuse!' said the teacher, and the justice stepped promptly up to the blackboard in amidst a round of applause from the and- Re ience. The scholar again began to read the sum. :Add fifteen-sixteenth!-' I A dozen hands went up as the iudge made the first figures. 'Well, what is it?' asked the teacher. 'He's got the denominator on to`p of the i l line i' cried the boys in chorus. d&w 'Very good, boys, very good; I see you - are attentive;' said the judge, as he rubbed out the figures, turned red, and began again, but was interrupted by the class calling out : 'Now hie's got the numerator and de nominator under the line.' 'Aha! you young rogues! You're sharp, I see!' said the judge, jocosely, and again commenced. 'That ain't a fraction at all. It's one thousand five hundred and sixteen!' was ,, the cry that hailed the judge's new combi nation of figures. 'Really, Mr. Teacher,' ejaculated the jutdge, 'I must compliment you on the wonderfuxl proficiency of your scholars in algebra! I won' tire their patience any more. e 'Oh, go on, go on,' said the teacher, and again the judge wrote some figures in an off hand manner. That ain't a fraction ! It's six thousand one hundred and sixty-one!' yelled the boys. 'Mr. Teacher,' said the judge, 'it would I be ungenerous on my part, and imply an 1 nworthy suspicion as to your efficiency, to put these extraordinarily bright child ren to additional tests. I would not-Ii could not-Oh! excuse me! There's Brown! I have important business with hin ! Sheriff I want to see you,' and he left. Some days afterwards a boy was broguht before Justice Southfield for throwing stones in the street. 'John,' said the judge sternly, 'were you the boy that laughed in school on Monday while I was working that problem ?' 'Yes, sir !' was the reply. John got thirty days.-R-ichmond Gazette. - Maj. P.
