A Safe Rule .—After the con
clusion of a lively horse-trade', a
witness of the transaction asted
cne of the traders what sort Of a
horse he had got by the ex
change*
"Oh, jast medium—jast a com
mon sort of a plag," was the re
ply
"And how old is he?"
"Twenty years; old.
"Bat Ï did not see yoff look at
his teeth,"
"No you did not yoaüg mao.
I have traded horses foi! the last
thirty years, and I hayë owned
as many as eight hundred differ
ent animals. My rale has always
been to mentally oalenfate the
asre of the other man's horse at
twenty. In this way I make Ho
mistakes atad suffer no disap
pointments."
"Didn't your role ever fail?"
"Well, iff did fail'once. I was
trading horses in pontiac, and t
made the usual estimate of
twenty-yeâfs, but the critter died
of old agB while I was trying to'
beat a größer down two cents ob'
the price of a peck of oata"
The Advantage bf having a Purpose.
The careers of two men in one
of our Connecticut cities afford
subject for thought, whatever the
moral deduced. Not tfteiity
years ago oue of the most prom,
ising Espiscopaliàn clergymen in
Connecticut was the Rev. Mr.—
Settled iu a beautiful city with a
parish that adored him, young,
handsome and talented, he easily
married in one of the oldest and
wealthiest families of the town,
and all seemed bright before him*
To-day I hear of him as stagger
ing through the streets of a ruial
town with a helpless invalid wife
and a half-starved family.
The wheel has turned very
fä&t with him for while his pro
gress was upward so far as pro
motion to larger and larger cities
is concerned, yèt his degradation
of late years been no less rapid.
Not that he is altogether to
blame for the mischances that
have befallen hi«n, for there have
been some domestic misfortanes,
and there were some unfortodate
influences in some of the
churches over which he hasminis
red that did not help him. 1fet
onger man would have oter
e these and the fact remains
t a brilliant writer and
an has gone to wreck
ptinciple;
ihirty
years a[ * '
ician, who acc
upon the town,
liked the looks of things, an
stuck up his shingle without a
single acquaintance save a drug
gist, who told him be was "a fool
to settle there.
"We shall See," was the re
sponse
The first Sunday of his stay he
attended church, and on hiä re
turn he said, "I saw my wife at
church to-day."
"What do you mean? I un
derstood you to be a bachelor."
"So I am; but I saw rtt chtfreh
the lady I shall marry."
"Who is she?"
"I doïft know. I neve* saw
her before, but she sat in the
center of the middle aisle and
was dressed so and so."
"Goodness, that is Miss
of one our oldest families. She
wouldn't look at a poor yonag
doctor like you."
"We «fcall see," said the doc
tor, who in less than two years
made a bride of the lady in ones
tion rose to a fine practice in the
town, and is to-day, as he has
been fo years, the leading phys
ician of one oi the leading cities
in America, in possession of a
princely income, a man whose
name would be recognized by
two-thirds of oar readers were it
given bWe. This man has a pur
pose.—[Springfield Republican.
The healthiest town efei 1
known was in Illinois one sum
mer, When the doctors went east
to attend a medical convention,
neglecting to return' for several
months. The doctors found that
when they did get back, their pa
tients had all recovered, th 6
nurses had opened daticing
schools, the cemetery Was eût up
into building lots, the undertaker
had gone to making Violins, and
the hearse had beeil' gaddïly
painted and sold for a circufe
wagon.

fôrilnt's Boyiio<kÙ
A cousiu and sohool-mate of
Gen. Grant, says that "Hi"—as
the general was called in hid
childhood— toâë a Bhort, stout
plain, boy, who talked little and
stopped at home a great deal,
but who had a tremendous
amount of determination. Jf he
once set about a thing he never
rested until he accomplished it,
Î Sometimes," says this cousin;
"the boys would get after the
rats which had tlibir holes under
the stables and biiilditlgs about;
well when this scheme vfras once
on foot, 'Hi' would go farther
than anybody else to gët those
rats odt. He would stay theré
and work âfter many oi the oth
ers had given up, and he would
persist antil the stable ^as nearly
torn down, but iie'd get the ratä
out." Once youn^ Grants
fathet sent bird iüio the woods!
with à team to get sdüie logä
—bea^y timbers that d strong
man coüll hardly mandge. The
boy brought back the ldgs on the
sledge to the father's Surprise,
whdse object in âënding him on
such an errahd lié did not ex
plain. <; He hrtd accomplished
the tadk," adds the chiohioler
in the Préss of Philadelphia,
"btit no doubt he thohght his
father had imposed upon him
and h%d hot rteated him with
boy, än'd if when he under
took something, étri accident oc
curred, or it became impossible
fof him to accomplish the end
he desired, he was apt to cry—
not in a babyish kind of a way
at tfot being able to get what he
wanted, but as if, his pride were
wtfanded."—[N. Y. Tribune.
She Visits à Prftftlngf Oltfce*
£he came into the office, smil

she were engaged, and George
bad a case. He had a galley of

which' he waff about £6 look op

like a' girl, shfrok her hand and
called his darling.' She eyed the*

"Bbddy dear," she stfid, still
eyeing the galley of nolàfpareil,
"are them the tftfngd you print

"YeS, dafling!" tfiid D'oddy,
feelingly.
She swept her taper fingers'
