A Man's Passion fo linoks and a Boy 'a Fa ftlon of Iiurter. t "There used to bo one man," said tho second-hand man to a Lowistbn (lid.) Journal reporter "who came down toseo me very often. Ho hasn't been around for a month, and I think must have moved aw ay Ho was a queer chap, and ro mis take about it. Ho worked in thp Auburn shoe factories, and, I've heard said.mado good wages. But ho had a liking for old books, and about every week ho visited my library out there in tho corner in search of something new that was old. His great hobby was books pertaining 10 agriculture. If he could get hold of any of those Board of Agriculture reports he was just happy. Tome they are dry reaJ inir, but with him they were food of keen relish. I guess he's moved off now, but ha must have a mighty collection of o'.d books with hitn. Ho has lwught enough in my store to supply all tho farmers in the State with agricultural sta tistics." At this point In the conversation a small boy came in. He had In his hand a pair of skates. Ho wa itod to trade them for a sled. "Do you know that every boy is a born trader!" asked the man of stories, after tho boy had gone out. "Yes, sir. by the time a boy is five years old he begins to trade and dicker aud swap. It's general, and I never saw a boy who wasn't so in clined. .They'll dicker any thing. 1 have a chance to see something of it. Before ice and snow camo they were all crazy for marbles, and they'd swap any thing for them. Later It was skates they wanted, and now the skating has gone they're trying to swap their skates for sleds. So it goes. Every thing in its season. It's fun to watch them maneuver. Some of them are pretty bright fellows and make somo sham trades." . TALES OF ANIMALS. An Intellectual Yankee Cat and an Aetute , Ohl Crow. Several years ago, writes a correspondent of the Lewiston (Mo.) Journal, we had a cat we all thought a great deal of, but she was a little-more reserved in the bestowal of her affections. She seemed to care for no one very much, except for my eldest daughter and myself, and if a man or boy came into tho house she would leave immediately. The summer that I speak of she had three youn g kittens. When they were about two weeks old I was sitting in the cook-room one day, when I noticed the cat coming in, and thought something was tho matter with her, but did not get up to see. She went and laid down under the stove, but was un easy, and kept moving and looking out to ward us. 1 forgot to mention that one or two men were also in the house, but pret ty soon they went out. when she went di rectly to her kittens, took one and carried it to my daughter, who exclaimed : "What is the matter with pussy?" Before I had time to look she had brought another to me, and as she laid it down she looked at me and, making a most pitiful noise, stretched out and died, and we found upon looking that she had been cut nearly In two. She bad waited until ihj men left the room, as if she was afraid of them, and then had loo'.ied out for the welfare of her offspring the best she knew how, by bring ing them to to. se she loved, and the look on her face was as earnest an appeal as a human countenance could have expressed. One of the children had, a year ago this summer, a tame crow which showed a great deal of shrewdness, or sense, or reason, whichever you choose to call it. They kept him out in the orchard near an old iounge that was placed under the trees, and there was just room enough for his little body to get under it. W hen they first had him out there the hens would get nearly all the food, and he, being afraid of them, would nop oft under the lounge and scold away at them ; but i f ter a day or two he would bo gin just as soon as his food was brought to him to carry it down under the lounge. He would not stop to eat a mouthful until he had got It all well out of reach, and then when the hens cuine around he would sit there and take a mouthful and then chucklo and chatter and seem to enjoy his meals all the better because the hens had to stand round and look at him, but couldn't get any : Onlria on Matr mony. If ever one is to pray, If ever one is to feel grave aud anxious, if ever one is to shrink from vain show and vain babble, surely it is just on the occasion of two hu man beings binding themselves to onu an other, for better aud for worse, till death part thorn..-, .'i'he two people most concerned, especially the bridegroom, are on such a uay willing enough to shrink from vain "now and vain babble, but their friends and relatives insist on trotting them out and making them show their paces.. Indeed, for man of shy or nervous temperament to be married without chloroform is a painful operation. He may be a strong man, but feels like Samson when, for the -sake of woman whom he loved, he allowed his Jesto be put out, and heard the Philistines ""g upon him tn make snort for Uwm, THE PIOCHE VOL XXXV11I MISCELLANEOUS.
