Putting Up Stoves. Inconsequence of cold weutber t-nce more, about Vaesa days there is a uni versal r-nltin up of stovea preparatory for the winter campaign, and tiudoubt edly a great deal of profanity 1 indulg ed in. One who has cojuiderable expe rience in puttinr up stoves says the Grst step to be taken is to put on a very rag ged old cont, under the impression that when he gets hi3 mouth lull of plaster it will keep his shirt bosom clean. Next be gets his hands inside the place here the pipe ought to go, and blacks his fin gers, and then he carefully makes a black mark down one side of his no3e. It is impossible to make any headway, in doing this work, . until his mark is made down one sideol this nose. Hav ing got hi3 laae properly nvtrked, the victim is ready to beiu the ceremony. The bead of the fatni- who is the big goose of the sacrifice grasps one .. tide of the bottom ol" tha stove, and his wife aud the hired girl tnke hold of the oth er side. In this way the load i3 started from the woodshed towards the parlor. Going through the. door the head of the family will carefully swing the stove around and jam his thumb nail against the door post, (this part of the cere mony is never omitted). Having got the stove comfort vb y in place, the next thing is to find the b gs. Two of these are left in the stove since the spring be fore." Tho other two must bo hunted alter for twenty-five minutes. They are usually found under the coal. Then the head of the family holds up one side while hi3 wile puts two of the legs in place, and next he hold.s up the oth er side while the other two are fixed, and one of the first two falls t ut. By the time the stove is on its legs he gets reckless, and takes olf his old coat re gardless of his linen. Then he goes in for the pipe and gets a cinder in his eye. It don't make any difference how well the pipe was put up bt3t year, it will be found a little too short or a lit tle too long. The head of the family jams his hat over Lis eyes .and taking a pipe under each arm goes to the tin shop to ha-re it fixed. When he gets back he steps upon one of tho best par lor chairs to nee if the pipe fits, and his wife makes him get down for fear he will scratch t'te varnish off from the chair with the nails in his boot heel. - In getting down ha will surely step on the cat, and may thank his ttars if it is not the baby. Tlien he gts an old chair and climbs up to the chimney again, to find that in cutting the pipe off the end has been lei'c too bij for the hole in the cbitnaey. So lie goes to the wood shed and splits one side of tho end of the pipe, with tin old axe, and squeezes it iu his hands to make it smaller. FinaU ly he gets the pipe in shape and finds that the stove does not stand true. Then himself and wife and hired girl move th stove to the left, and the legs fail out again. Next it is to move to the right. More difficulty with the legs. Moved to the front a little. Elbow not even with the hole in the chimney, and he goes to the wood 3hed after some lit tle blocks. While putting the blocks under the leirs the pipe comes out of the chimney. Head of the family gets the dinner table out, put3 the old chair on it, gets his wife to hold the chair, and balances himself on it to drive some nails into the ceiling. Drops the ham on" to his wife's head. At last gets the nails driven, make3 wire swing to hold the pipe, hammers a little hexe, pulls - a little there; takes a long breath, and an nounces the ceremony complete. . Job never put up any stoves. It would have ruined hi3 reputation if he had. N Y Express. JUST AND FEAR NOT! LET ALL THE I? ICIIMOWD, W r .. , , , The Power of Words i- .': The knowledge of words is not an el egant accomplishment only, not a luxu ry, but u necessity, of the cultivated man. ; It is necessary not only to him who would express hi nself but to him who would think with precixsion and ef fect. There is, indeed, no higher proof of thorough and accurate culture-- than the fact that a writer insteid of employ ing words loosely and at hap hazard, chooses only those which are the exact vesture of his thought. " As he only can be called a well dressed man whose clothes just fit himr-being neither small and shrunken, nor loose and baggy, it i3 the first characteristic of a good style tLat the words fitclose to the ideas. They will be - neither, too big, here, hanging like a giant's rope on the limbs oft dwarf,"nor too small there, like a boy's garments into which a man has painfully squeezed himself; but will bo the exact correspondents and per fect exponents of his thought. Between the most synonymous words a careful writer will have a choice; for, strictly speaking, there are no synonyms in a language, the most closely resembling and apparently equivalent terms having some nice shade ol distinction a fine illustration of which is found in Beu Johnson's line, 'Men may securely sin, but safely never;' aud arain in the reply with which Sidney Smith used to meet the cant about the popular education in England: 'Pooh, pooh! it i3 tho worst educated country in the world, I grant you; but it is tha best instructed ' Wm. Pitt was a rctaaikaMa example of this precission of style. Fox said of him, 'Though I am myself nevea at a loss for a word, Pitt has not only a word, but the word the very word to express his meaning.' It is related of Robert Hall that when he was correct ing the proofs of his sermon on 'Mod el Infidelity,' on coming to the famous passage, 'Eternal .God, on what are thine enemies intent? What are those enter prises cf guilt an I horror that, for the safety of their performers , require to be envelopad ia a darkness which tha eye of heaven must not penetrate?" he ex claimed to his friend. Dr. Gregory, 'Penetratel did I say penelfale, sir, whei I preached it?' 'Yes .' 'Do you think, sir, I may venture to alter it? for no man who considers the fcrco of the En glish language would use a word of three syllables there but from absolute necessity. For peneiruie put pierce: pictceis the word, sir, and the only one, to be used there.' Few persons know hor hard easy writing is. Who tha. reads the light, sparkling verse of Tom Moore, dreams of the mental pangs, the long and anx ious thought which a single word often cost him. Irving tells us that he was once riding with the Irish poet in the streets of Paris, when the hackney coach went suddenly ir.lo a deop rut, out of which it came with such a jolt as to send their pa'e.9 bump against tho roof. 'By J ve, I re g t itV cried Moore, clapping his ht;ids with great glee. 'Got what?" asked Irving. Vh' said the poet, 4thai wordVve hunted for for six weeks, to complete my last song. That rascally driver has jolted it out of me.', Western Monthly. . Death of George Peabody. A man untitled, but glorious a sim ple citizen, but with a beautiful fame throughout Christendom, and honors be j'ond those of Princes, George Peabcdy, died on Thursday night, November 4th, at his London residence. His health has been rapidly failing during the last year; and when, after his trip to this country, to try if tbe air of his native land would not restore his strength, he grew worse and was confined to his house, tho most serious apprehensions were entertained. -. We heard the other day that the Queen of Eugland had in quired by telegraph as to his health, ex pressing the tenderest anxiety for his welfare. The outlines of his history are familiar to every schoolboy. He was born in Danvers, Massachusetts, and be came iu his mature years a banker in London. His sagacity and integrity in business gave him great wealth. A bach elor, he devoted his foilune to benevo lent objects, and secured, more than any other ruan of this generation, the uni versal esteem of mankind. ' It was the felicity of his career to bestow his wealth in his own time and way in the benevolent and educational enterprises that his judgment most commended. His gifts have been of astonishing magni tude. Long ago he,was remarkable for them. Each year he has added to them hundreds of thousands, and sometimes millions. His prosperity has , been as wonderful as Ids beuevolence. : His age exceeded the allotted ?p.vn of three score and ten. His example will be of inestimable value in impressing those who contemplate woiks of charity to do them while they can see them well done. He has nejoyed the celebrity of his vir tues, and will be remembered with af fectionate reverence when the warriors and monarchs of the lime are forgotten, or but lightly esteemed. No words that the Cable has flashed at miadight thro' the Atlantic have touched as many hearts with sorrow, and at ' the same time called ,up as many kindly and grateful recollections of generous deeds as these. George Peabody is deadl Cin. Commercial. Chicago is breaking out with a regu. lar eruption of hist orerans. The first of , five new ones recently ordered has just been completed, and puzzles philosophy in a report that it is blown by water.

In "aliiProoaV-li".v'' bur Republican State Convention, will beheld, as ; usu al, in February thoagh a postponement until a few months later would, we be lieve, be judicious and it is not amiss to look over the ground now to sea who would be th.8mo3t available and. proper persons to choose to make up a strong ticket that will, insure success , "at the.

" , Therefore a new man will , hayts to be ehosenj and who -shall it be? Among the politicians of the State there are,1 doubtless, a " number who 'would' accept the place if it were thrust - upon them,- and no doubt many of them would make ood and efficient offljers. But it seems to us that just,.at, this timo hones ty, integriti' and efficiency, combined, should have the preference in making up our ticket over simplv political and military prominence. Viewing the sit uation from this stand point, and hav ing the material wherewith to make a Treasurer of State that; would be an honor to our common wealth, we pre sent Shelby county's claims for a place on the ticket, in the person of Augustc? D Lrxcn, for that office. " That the people of our S ate may the better know Mr. Lynch, we will briefly sum him up thus: A son of Rev. Tho3. II Lynch, D D; a graduate of Asbury University; President for some time cf Urookville College, and for the pait four years, Cashiar of the 'Frst National Bank, of this city. In what ever capac ity Mr. Lynch has served, he has always pre-eminently shown his ability for the task before him, and his financial abili ty is heartily acknowledged by all who, as stockholders or otherwise, arc inter ested in, and familiar with the conduct of that enrcrprising Banking IIou?e." Modest and of unassuming manners, Mr. Lynch would never p it, himself for ward and struggle for place, but his friends in Eastern Indiana, knowing his meritp have determined that he shall at least have a formidable strength iu the coming convention. Mr. Lynch was chosen Chairman of our Cclinty Republican Central Commit tee at the opening of the last campaign, and labored zealously and donated lib erally for the success of our ticket. He is an ardent and live Republican, and a man who would conduct the office of Treasurer of State, if not better, at least as well as it has been heretofore. The Republicans of Shelby county, although in a minority, have never been known to flag or fall behind in the work, heretofore we have always - been on hand at our State Convention to do our duty, nnd have never asked anything for ourselves. Tins time we intend to ask, and expect to recieve. Love, Postry, and Business. A recent number, of the "Chicago Tribune," tells an amusing story of a higfcly sentimental dry goods clerk in that city. '' He lately married and was so filled with his own happiness that he was impelled to impart it to Purround ino objects. It has been his habit to write rhymes of a love-sick sort on praps of paper that lay about the store, and on the piles of wrapping paper in which goods are enclosed. This pecu liarity lias been the source of much nmu-rraent to his fellow clerks A .few days ago, when the store was crowded with customers, a man came in with excitement visible in his hands, t:is hair, and his heaving breast, who stepped up to the happy poet, and, pointing to some lines, asked him if he wrote them. He wa3 oblidged to own them. The scene had now attracted all per sons iu the store to the spot. The irate isitor directed the clerk to read the lines, which he did aloud as follows; 'Come in the evening, come in the mor ning, ',; , Coire when you're looked for, come without warning, Kisse3 aud welcome shall be there be fore you. - And the oftcuer you come here, the more I'll adore you.' There, sir, how dare 3'ou give such stuff to "my wife m' wife whom I adore? You wretch!' - ' " " , It was some time before the explora tion, which was easy to make, proved satisfactory. It is . needless to say that scribbling poetry on wrapping paper i3 forbidden in that store, lest soma loving s.vaiu should again maka the mistake of wrapping up a dress iKittenv for an inno cent laiy in verse intended by the au thor for the maiden of his own heart.

Curiously enough; the physical work er is being better and better paid and less and less, hardly tasked in this land of ours, while just the reverse obtains in increasing ratios for those who live by the lower form of brainwork; so that luckily, the bribe to use hand is grow ing daily, and pure mechanical labor, as opposed to that of the clerk, is being 'leveled upward' with a fortunate celerity- " " -" . ' ' ' 1 In a late number of tho 'Independent' there is a poem intended to be very se rious and touching, which begins with this remarkable line: "I have a casket in my soul's boudoir." The New Haven 'Palladium' thinks the poet might have made her verse more musical, and equally explicit, had she written: ' . . "I have a sofa in my soul's saloon." 'What is the matter with you?' inquir ed a Judge, who had called to see his. sick neighbor. 'Veil, I don't know, chudge, dey say it ish de cout; but vy should I have de com?

To which we might reply, there would have been no country. But Mr. Buchanan is a good specimen what Democracy can do in the matter of debt. Duting four years of profound peace he ailded to the burdens of the country no less than $60,000.00o! The Radicals found when they came into powar a" debt of $89, 000,000 every dollar of it a legacy from their Democratic predecessors. The Public Debt Decreasing. Since the Administration of General Grant went into power, . the public debt has steadily diminished, at the average rate of about eight millions of dollars a mouth. Should this average be main tained till the first of March next, the debt will be less by ninety-six millions of dollars than' it was when General Grant was sworn into office. It is the ambition of Secretary Boutwell to exceed that amount, and to make the reduction a round one hundred millions at the ex piration of the first year of bis terms as Secretary of the Treasury. He believes that in demonstrated ability to pay lies the hope of negotiating such a loan as will enable him to reduce the rate of in terest on outstanding obligations from six and a half per cent, to four and , a half. This accompiiahed.without any ad dition to the present volume of currency it wid be possible to lighten the bnrdens of taxation, provide revenue to meet constantly accruing expenses, leave a large surplus to apply to the debt, and open a direct way to the resumption of specie' payments. The scheme looks feasible, and the desired result will fol low as surely as effect follows cause. Marbiaik.- Marriage ia a woman's one ca- reer, let women rebel against , the edict as they may; and though thero may be word rebellion here and there, women learn tbe truth earlier in ihiir lives. And women know it latter in life when they, think of their girls; aud men know it, too, when they have to deal with their (laughters. Girls, too, now acknowl edge aljud that they hve leirned the lesson, and Saturday Reviewers and others blame them for their lack of modesty in doing so most unreasonably; most uselessly, and, as far as the infljencu of these censors may go, most perniciously. Nature prompts the desire," the wojJd acknowledges i:s ubiquity, circumstan ces show that it is reasonable, the whole theo ry of creation requires it; but. it is required that tho person must concerned should falsely repudiate it, in order that a mock modesty may be maintained in which no human being can believe! Such is the theory of the censors who deal heavily with our Ergltab. women of the present day. Oar daughters should be edacas ted to be wives, but forsooth! they should nevs er wish to be wooed! - Tha very ilea is but a remnant of the tawdry soatimentality of an age in which the mawkish j insipidity ; of the women was the reaction from the vice of that preceding it.

Rothschild and the Archbishop of Paris met at a public dinner, some time since, and arrived at the same moment at the door. Neither 'wished to enter first the Jew showing respect, the Christian tolerance. Finally the Arch bishop cried out : "M.

A lively de:rand for tract at a Western settlement recently encourag'd the hopes of the Tract Societ3" that an Immence work of revival must be going on' there. The cry was constantly for "tracts,more tracts." At last it leaked out that the settlers were using these promoters of faith, not for moral cornfort.but to paper their log cabins with. The. Trace Soci ety, since the discovery, is a wiser, but a sadder institution. ' Old Father Taylor, of Boston, though aged seventy seven, is still hale and hearty, and especially active at camp, meetings. Lately at Eastham,' Mass ,' he became very much interested iu a young man, for whom he prayed thus : 'O Lord, perhaps youTdon't know who the young man is. He is Captain , son of , of Harwich, one of our best friends and most prominent citizens.' , The English Church Congress at Liv erpool, presented most of those signs of dissension and indecision which usually precede the decline and fall of any sys tem, and? none of .the unanimity tht tends to secure a 'fixity of tenure.' In deed, one of the outspoken Episcopal divines, Archdeacon "Denison, said very frankly that the Church polity wa3 a sort of 'rubbish,' and .that, in his opin ion, the establishment was doomed to go. r A number of Jewish rabbis are in con ference iu Philadelphia. They are of the progressive party bf.that people, and are debating proposed reforms in doc trine nnd worship." They have adopted resolutions abolishing, the use of the Hebrew tongue in , their worship, dis claiming tho doctrine of bodily resur rection, and the renewal of the Jewish state, and declairing the Aaronic priest hood and the Mosaic sacrificial worship things of the past, to be mentioned only in an adncationil capacity, and not be practiced. , . , v' l ' An old lady, who had not been relig iously instructed, attended a' Methodist meeting' in the West.

"Ah, well,, answered the old lady, 'a3 it happened so very far away and so very longago, let us hopo that there is not a bit of truth in it !'; .' At the recent Church Congress held in Liverpool, Archdeacon Denison shocked the Sabbatarians by saying that he had some years ago encouraged" the young men to play cricket between morning and afternoon service on Sun day.' The favor this recognition of mus cular Christianity received from many members of the ? Congress shows that English :; Churchmen .are ' considerably more liberal "than ' religious denomina tions in this country. Among the meas ures', considered by r the Evangelical Council in New York is the enforcement of Sabbath observence by the power of the magistracy. .We believe it was' one of tbe Beechers who said there ought to be a bowling alley in the basement . of every church but he or she did not say the pins ought to be set up to be knock ed down on the first day of the week.
