ISH DOT SO. There is doubtless such a Ihtng as ex cessive promptness in emergencies. Presence of mind and determination are | | J | admirable qualities in themselves, but it sometimes happens that a decision made upon the spur of the moment is regretted upon a more liberal survey of the field. This remorse seems to have overtaken, lately, a worthy Dutchman of Anoka county, Minnesota. The Dutch man was seeking to reach a town some ■ distance from Sank Center, and to ac ! complish this must drive over the prairie il from the latter town' , turned to the road and night overtook I no town in sight. j tary firm house visible aud asked per-, : mission to Slav till morning. Ihe farmer .......... . | t^llii.j? the traveler, however, that it j him with liis vehicle fast in a slough and He sought the soli would be necessarv for him t«> »leep wlib the children or with the farmer himself, as their accommodations were limited, Quick as lightning the Dutchman cx pressed his resolution not to sleep with the "bodderation shiltren," so he slept with the farmer. The rest of the story may be given in his own language: "Veil, in der mornin' when I come mit the sthairs down, I see two girls about seventeen and nineteen years old, und I nsk der old man; 'Who was dem?'und he say, 'Dem vas my shiltren.' 'Vas dem all der shiltren you vas got?' und he say 'Dem vas mine only shiltren!, I say, und I say to myself, *Py shiminy! Ith dot so!' "—From Avalanche, 1876. LONG VALLEY ITEMS.
