AT SECOND HAND.
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
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

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
