At this juncture, my companion
ts led out to dance by, a military

'to Miss Perryville. Miss Perryville's.
dancing days, like, mine, wore over,1
so I knew that she was likely to be a 1
fixture. She greeted me with : .
'Why Doctor, I was astonished to
see you talking to Mrs. Ready; people
say such dreadful things about her.'
' Why, do they
'Yes; they her husband is dying of
a broken heart, all caused by her iu
famous behaviour. I am amazed at
Mrs. General having bei here.'
.VWelj. I do declare, how all you
people abuse each other.'
'Has any one abused nie?' and Miss
Perryville bridled up.

'Yes; you all do it. I'm going home.

on the table he began to be sociable.
The following conversation ensued :

about ten years, and Emma, pa's

I. hope so, anyhow. I'm kinder sick
of funerals. The}' made an awful futi
when thoy stowed away inn, and a
bigger howl when they planted
Emfim. So I'd jes as leave you'd j

his doubts about it.

you mean, this instant.

i with him if they underst and him. All
you've got to do is to be sweet on him,
and he'll be like a lamb. Now, Emma,
she used to get mud and heave a plate,
or a coal scuttle, or most anything at
hint, and it used to irritate him. And
ma, she'd blow him up about l?.U?O
times a day; both of them would bang
me till I got disgusted. And pndidn't
like it. Treat mc well, give mo candy
and money, and -you've got pa sure.
Emma used to smack me; and when

MAils1.?Farmers who have but little
experience in feeding annuals for the
market, are often disappointed because
their beef and pork does not weigh as
nittt-h as they thought it would. They
are likely to overlook certain points
which ought always to be taken into
account when estimating tlie dressed
weight of animals.
An old ahimal will not dress as
xiueh in proportion to its looks as a
young and growing one. '
A creature w inch is very fat will
weigh a great deal more than one
equally as large, but which has not
been well fattened.
An animal which has had twenty or
thirty bushels of meal will dress much
heavier than one which has been fed
only about half its much meal.
A crealuro which has been mealed
for live or six months will weigh more
than o ld which has had about the
.same amount of meal, but has been
led only about hilf a's long.
In all eases, liberal and long con
tinued feeding is essential to the at
tainment of any great success in fat
tening animals of any kind.?New

A Lusus Natuuk.?We are in
formed by Mr. Sol. Cochran, tbo mail
currier to Dunbarton, that on thc2?tb
of June bist, colored twins wero born
on tbo farm of Mr. Joseph ABhley,
near that place, with a Hganicntnry|
connection near the. stomach. One of
tho twinshns neither eyes, nose, hands
or feet, and the only orifice answering,
for a mouth is a perpendicular sljt
runuing .lcngthwi.se of the face. It
seems to be perfectly dumb and to re
ceive nourishment entirely from the
other child, who is healthy and well
formed. If the dumb child is touched
the other feels it, and if asleep im
mediately awakens. The perfectly
formetl child, as ma}' be supposed, is a
female, while the dumb animal belongs
to the male persuasion. Quite an

region, and several enterprising
Barniiins have already appeared upon
the scene and made extravagant offers
to the parents to allow their abnormal
offspring to goon exhibition.
