Essay on Cats.
I havk staddyed oatsolnBsiy for yearn
and have found thorn aliked tew a wild
state. They baint got affockshun nor
tirtae of enny kind; tha - will aeratob
their best friends, and won't ketoh mice,
unless tbey are hungry. It hat bin bald
that iha ate cod to make up . into sat
sages, but this is a great mistake. I hav
been tola by ' a sassage. maker the don t
kompare with dogs. There is. ono thing
artio, tha are very anxious to live.
You ma torn. one inside out, and hang
him up by the tain, ind ax soon sz vou
are out of sight he will manage to turn a
back aumerset and cum around awl rite
in a few days. '1. is Very hard work to
louie a eat If one gets parried oph in a
bag by mistake a great ways into the
country,- it would sta lost only a short
time, bat soon appear tew make the fam
ily happy with its presence. Old maids
are very tond or cats, for the reason. I
suppose, that oats don't marry if they
nave ever so gooa a cha ooe. v There , u
one thing about cats t don't like, if you
step on their tales', by ackoidant, tha git'
mad rite oph, and make a grate fuss
about it. There iz another thing about'
them' which makes them a good invest
ment for poor folks. A pair of cats will
yield eaob year'. i without any outlay,
something like eight hundred per , cent.
Il is a very singular faot that caU don't
like a miM-pond. : I never knu bne to

nav never been able tew agree on the
mane question ; they both Beem tew want
the auirmatiff side tew onst I think if
I could hav my wsy, ' there Wouldn't be
enny more cats born, unless tha could
show a certificate ov moral karakter.
Tbere one thing more about catts which
seems tew me tew be all affeotashuo, and
that is making such a Confounded ' noise
under a foliar window; o'night's,' and
then calt it, musik, '. If I was. to have
my choice between a oat and strioed
snake, I wuld prefur the snake, beoause I
coum Re. na uv ttie snake by letting it
go. There ain't no eartin way to kill a
eat. If you make one into easeaees. and
you think you are awl rite, jiat ez iikeli

lot of good sassages with it.

hastily hov together, and ef I ain't sed

An AMusiNQi Ton8il! Incident.
Doubtlosb the tunnel on the Eastern
Bailroad, j ust east of the depot in Salem,
nas. been tne Been ot numerous amusing
incidents, but we doubt if anything of a
more Iudiorous charaoter has evor taken
place in it than the following : It seemB
that a few days si ooe, a lady and her sis
tor, and a grown up. son cf the latter,
took the cars at Boston for the east, the
sisters occupying a seat together and the
young man the one behind, with another
person. . Upon entering the tunnel, tne
aant, tb have a little fun, rose up care
fully, reached over to the soat the young
man had been ooonpjinir, Beized some
one by the collar, shook him soundly,
and' then resumed her Beat. 1 Thb sister,
surprised at J'her Vigorous movements,
asked what she had been dOing,);and was
informed by the other that she had buen
trying to frighten her nephew.; Her
feelings can be imagined when the mothi
er made her acquainted, with the faot that
the youpg maa Ion tho train at (Salem,
and that she had boon 'shaking up - the
wrone nagaaBcrar.' . When . tha train
emerged from the tunnel, the person who
oaa oeen mistaseu lorene sou was oo
served adjusting his neck.tie and collar.
and remarked that he did not know what
the matter was with the ladies in front
of him. but thought one of them '' must
be insane, for she had given him a severe
shaking, tome off his neoktie, erfratched
hisuaoe, bnd disarranged his hair, and
he was at a loss to give any- other arj.
count for thb sudden attack -that had
been mado udoo him; - ' . ' vi i
