KICKED BY A MULE. j
Bill Rollins had a mule. There was nothing
very remarkable in the mere fact of his being- the
happy possessor of such an animal, but there was
something- peculiar about the mule. He couid hit
harder and kick higher, on the slightest provo
cation, than anv mule on record.
One morning when Bill was riding his proper
ty to market, he met Harry Simms. against whom
he had an old, but concealed grudge. He knew
Simms to be a bragging and betting character and
accosted him accordingly:
'How are you, Hurry ? Fine morning?'
'Hearty, squire,' replied Harry. 'Fine weather.
Nice mule that you have. Will he do to bet on?'
4Bet on? Guess he will that. I tell you Harry
Simms, he's thejbest mule in this country. Paid
S5oo for him '
Goodness jfrjicloiu?!"" Is that so?' ejaculated
Solid truth, every word of it. Tel? yo'u confi
dentially, Harry, I'm taking him down for betting- j
purposes. I bet he can kick a fly off from any
man without its hurting him.'
Now look here, squire, I am not a betting
character, but I'll bet you something on that myself.'
Harry there is no use ; don't bet, I don't want
to win your money.'
'Don't be alarmed, squire; I'll take such bets as
them every time.'
'Well, if you are determined to bet, I will' risk
a small stake say $5."
All right, squire, you're my man. But who'll
he kick the fly off? There is no one here but you
and I. You try it.'
No,' says Rollins, 'I have to be by the mule's
head to order him.
'Oh ! yass says Harry. 'Then probably I'm
the man ! Wa'all I'll do it; but you are to bet ten
against my five, if I risk it?1
AH right,' quoth the squire. 'Now, there is a
fly on your shoulder. Stand still.' And Rollins
adjusted the mule. Vhist, Dick,' said he.
The mule raised his heels with such velocity and
force that Simms rose in the air like a bird, and
alighted on all-fours Tn a muddy ditch, bang up
against a rail lence.
Rising, in a towering rage, he exclaimed :
Yass, that is smart! I knew yer darned mule j
couldn'tdoit. You had that all put up. I wouldn't
be kicked like that for fifty dollars. You can just
fork over them are stakes for it any way, j
Not sofast, Harry; Dick did just what I said
he could ; that is, kick a fly of! a man without its '
hurting him. You sec, the mule is not injured by 1
the operation. However, if you are not satisfied, I
we will try it again as often as you wish.' j
'The deuce take you,' growled Harry. I'd
rather have a barn fall on me at once than have i
that critter kick me again. Keep the stakes, but
don't say anything about if ' j
And Harry Simms trudged oh, in bitterness of H89h!
soul, murmuring to himself, 'Sold by thunder I HjHS
and kicked by a mule!1 HHhH

BEWARE OF LAW I HHI
To go to law is for two persons to kindle HBBI
a fire at their own cost, to warm others, and BBH
singe themselves to cinders. A lawsuit is like a HHH
building we cast. up the cost ill gross, and under- HH
reckon it ; but having begun, we are trailed along - RfiH
; through several items, till' we can neither bear the IHBH
account nor leave off,-though inclined to do so. HBIH
The anxiety, the trouble the attendance, the haz- BHl
ard, checks, the vexatious delays, the surrepti- jHfl
tious advantage taken; of us,- the hopes deferred". Hl
the falseness of prctciftftng- friends, tttq interest of HH
parties, the negligence of agents, and the design' HH
of ruin upon us, do put us upotf 3 combat against? fll
all that can plague poor man ; or Vse we must' lit;' IHHl
down, be trodden upun, be kicked, ami .die. So' HHH
far, law may be coir pared to war that it is a tasC- IHfl
rasort, and ought never to be used but when SHj
other means do fail. Ex. IHI
L FTW LATE FLOWERS. Il
I send you enclosed in a, little box a few of the iH
i late flowers 1 have now, September i6th, in bloom. HH
I hc most brilliant bed I have on my place tliu H
double Portulaca, and 1 think every plant in-the flH
I bed is quite double. I must, however, h.ive aken H
out about one-quarter of the plants as soon as the JH
first flower appeared, and proved single. These I
transplanted to a little vacant bed. anil not one ' HH
died ; when they became Older many ;f - Vliem .B
S.ng-e & Double I'ortulaca, perfection. I-find
these do bo better, also, if the plants are little 1
late. They are not easily distroyed liy cold. Last
autumn I had fine flowers after a good deal of
i frost. The White Candy tuft will bear hard frosts, jH
1 1 had it looking well, in the garden until the doth
of November in Central Michigan. -nH
The Japan Pink I also find bears frost. H
Della. in Vick's Monthly Magazine.
In our opinion, there is nothing that enhances
the beauty of a home so much as a neat .and. at. - Nl
tractively arranged little flower garden. In opr fH
climate a collection of flowers can, with a little 1
care, be so arranged that a fragrant perfume and Bl
an abundant bloom will be a source of pleasure 'Hl
nearly the whole year round. Flowers that will I jH
bear the frost, in Central Michigan, until the 20th T '11
I of November, would be likely to last the whole yH
; winter in our Semi-Tropical climate. Those in ' f
I the above article are fine flowers. A Tew other taD
; varieties could be added, such as the Columbine, ' IH
. Pansy, Dahlia, Zinnia, Aster, Chrisanthemum, l
1 Acroclinium, Amaranth, Helichrysum, and anyv "
amount of others you might choose, to keen up a
I fine show the year round,
