''Hard to Bear."
Gen. Jackson, adhered, even dur ins his Presidency, to certain pemilaritiev of proiiUnciation which he liai ac (juired in liis youth. He would, for m stance, pronounce the word develop nient, as though it were wriitan d -\i, ope-ment, with a strong accent upo "ope." Conversing one day v, i'!i ; foreign minister who had been educa ted in England, the General said'Me.L ope-inent." In the course of a aontc* 1 <* or two, the minister pronounced tin word correctly. "I repeat it, Mr. ---cont'nu d the President, "this measure is es ent: al t the devil-ope-ment of our resources. "Really, sir," said the minister, "I consider the devel-opeiiient of vour country"—with a marked accent upon the vel. "Excuse me, Mr. ——exclaimed the President, "you may call it de-vel-op ment, if you please; hut I say devil ope-ment, and will say devil-ope-ment as long as I revere the memory of good old Dr. Waddell !" referring to a famous preacher. Another man, aged and good, but ignorant and suspicious, was once greatly di turbecl by a word with winch he was not familiar. He imagined his neighbor Dillon had a grudge against him, and brooded over the surmise un til he believe d Dillion to be his bit! er enemy. His family tried in vain to con vince him to the contrary. One evening, in a church meeting, the old man arose and stated his griev ance. Mr. Dillon could hardly believe* his ears. He sprang to his feet as the old man sat down. "Why, my dear brother," exclaimed he, "you are wholly mistaken ! I your enemy! Why, such a thought never entered my mind. Indeed, indeed ! you are under an hallucination," and the surprised brother sat down, thinking he had convinced the old man that he was mistaken. The meeting went on, but before it closed the old gentleman again arose. "Breth Tn," said he in tremulous tones, "I've felt bad over this, and it's pretty hard to bear; but when Prank Dillon gets up in meetin', afore you all, an' declares that I'm 'full of hellish no fcions,' an' not a voice, not one, is raised against it, it's—it's too much. I've been a member here fifty years, a'most, but, " and he straightened his bowed form, "I shall never come here again while such things are said an' accepted." And it was only after much effort that the poor old man was made to un derstand the meaning of the word hal lucination. — Youth's Co mpan ion. Don't Advise the Dyspeptic. A writer in the New York Tribune insists that persons with weak stomachs should have their food p epared to or der. If a man must have his boots, his coats, or his pantaloons made to order, lie should pay some attention to liis internal arrangements, and not at tempt to get more in his stomach than it will hold, or a quality or character of diet that it cannot digest. Of course there is good sense in this, and nobody understands it better than dyepeptics. But the trouble is that a dyspeptic with a stomnch of one pound capacity will cram three pounds of food into it, and spend the remainder of the day con templating suicide. He knows why he is wretched, understands that it is his own fault, iind appreciates the fact that if he would eat less his disease would gradually disappear, but he lacks con trol over his appetite, and after living in repentance for a day or two, and, re gaining liis mind, plunges once more into dissipation, eating corned beef, cabbage, turnips, potatoes, plum-pud ding and pound-cake, and abandoning in the frightful hours which follow all hope of happiness here or hereafter. It is all nonsense to advise a dyspeptic. If he is a true dyspeptic he will do ex actly the thing which he is told not to do. He will hate his friends, his fam ily and. his country. He will hate him self worse than he hates any tiling or anybody else, and his hutred w.ll be all the more intense because lie is sc formed by nature as to be physically unable to kick himself around the block. Our advice to you is, never to tell a dyspeptic wliat to eat or drink. Such advice has driven many of them into lunatic asylums. Give 3dm lii corned beef and cabbage, liis strong coffee. Iris pastry and hot rolls. Let him kill himself if be will. He is so perverse i b lit everything that lie won't, however, and in a short time you will see him trying to live like a rational be ing, and givit g up food u hicli goats and ostriches have found to be indi gestible .—Ch icat/o News. The Oldest Organ in Aiuerf«i. The first organ ever brought lo this country is still in constant u-to in Bo. John's Chapel, Portsmouth, N. H. 'J he Hon. Henry K. Olive , of SaB-ni. Ma s., thus gives its history: "It is sometimes known as the Brattle organ, having bee n the property of the Hon. Te ornas Brattle, who was born in Bos ton, in 165S, and was tree surer of II r wrd College (where he gn du a ted in 1670, one of a (lass of only three mem bers) from 161)3 till 3713, the year oi his death (unmarried;, in aosxu.

Brattle Street Church reiu.e-d the gift, the opposition to organs in dissenting churches being then as great as it is now r in churches in Scotland. But the parish of King's Chapel (Stone Chapel) accepted the gift, complying with thp terms, and procuring a 'sober person, Mr. Edward Enstone, from England, on a salary of £30 per sin mm. Here it was used till 1750, when it was replaced bv a new and larger one fron England. It was then sold to St John's church, in Portsmouth—thou rumor has it that it was for a while in a church in Newburyport. It is now at least 175 years old, and yet in gone order.

"Aw, J ack, wliat will evah become of you?"

"Dweadful, Jack, dweadful!" "I knaw it, Tawm, but wliat was a fellah to do? I knaw if I calm't go in to the country befoah a week, I shall become a total week.
