"How strango many things appear, as we look back a few years;" so remarked a parish minister, one evening as he sat before the flaming fire, as it sparkled through the iron "Yos indeed," remarked i kind hearted 'little woman who sat busily sewing be side the stand, on which burned a small lamp. "But what made you use that remark; husband were you re ilecting on the . past,? "Yes, my dear, I was just thinking that my life had been one of "Midnight and Noonday "shad ow and sun shiue, sorrow and joy, want and plenty, and with al very varied." "Very true, such may be said of every one's life, I presume." "Not in the sense I can say it. Evdry one has not passed through what I have, every one has not struggled against the siime disadvantages. That all men have had their 'up and downs,' I have no doubt, but many have had advantage fol lowing advantage, from earli est childhood ; kind parents and eminent helpers, and I cannot say that any of those advanta ges were mine. "Yes, but you must remem ber, that the best advantage any one can have,is a Z-WGod, and an earnest, and moltite heart!" "All that is true, yet we all need curtain aider and abettors, in this world, in the shape of mankind, and when wo do not havo them, we labor under many and great embarrass ments. Wo should not neglect to trust the kind Father in Heaven, but it would bo so much better, for us all if we had plenty of earthly friends to help us also." This conversation composed the substance of remarks pass ing between a country parson and his wife, on a certain win ter evening not many years ago ; and shall suttico for our Introduction. CHAPTER 1. "I say that ho shall not go to school to-day. I havo some thing else for him to do. When ho gets btarted once, there is no getting anything out of him. School is all he thinks about, and you are inclined to favor his whim." So remarked a guardian of a poor boy, whom a man of the world thought too much inclined - i .. I 1 tm i . , 1 iw uo iu Bcnooi. "liur.. finiii n ady standing in the ihrf "you must not prevent tho child from getting an education." "I guess one day will not hurt him much." "Just one day would not, but you koep him out of school m lor almost every, fnvilous thing." "I keep him at homo when I need him." "You keep him out of school bajf tlio timo to do ittle chores' that you could, do yourself and not- miss,tlie tuao.' (....rti;; X "I did not take that boy, to raiso him up in laziness, and if I allow you to have your way and him his, I will spoil the lad, so I shall. Keep him at homo to cut wood to-day!" ; "I hope you will not persist in keeping Willie out of school, for tho child told me in tears, that ho could not keep up with his class, and stay at home over half the timo. I found hini cry ing this morning because1, you told him he must stay at home to-day. You will so .dis courage the .boy ; that . lie will never bo anything I fear." While this talk was going on Willie been at the barn feed ing, and just now came up an said. "I do want to go school, f when I stay at home, the othdr boys get ahead of me, and the 1 it is hard work to catch up, an I I have been put back twics since I commencedv going, 00 account of being kept at homi so much." "Do you go out there- ana handle that ax, and see how much wood you can chop, or I'll put you back in a way you don't like." This last remark settled the whole matter, for Mr. Lorenzo, the boy's Uncle, was a resolute and very stubborn man, and his orders had to be obeyed. If you could have stolen up behind Willie, as he tried to chop wood that morning, you could have heard him sob, and. when ho stopped the swing of the ax, it was only to wipe the big tears out of his eyes so he could see where to strike. Any parent, or guardian,who prevents those,, .enti:usted,..to their care from a regular and prompt attendance at school, should be held to answer ' be fore the law, especially in a free State. The day wore away, poor Willie,all the time thinking how he was losing ground. The cold-hearted, Mr. Lo renzo, took his ease, and calm ed his conscience by telling Willie that night, that "he was a whale to cut wood," but the poor boy went to bed that night as he had often done before, with a sad heart. Tired little form, soon go to sleep, so af ter the accustomed "Our Fath er" had baen repeated, with the couplet: "Now I lay mo down to sleep," Willie fell asleep to dream the following singular dream to be continued. A young New Yorker, spend ing a month with his uncle ia New Jersey, wroto thus to his mother: "The peach trees hera arc too slippery forme to climb, undo won't let mo sail boats in the milk nails : there's no bird's nests around that I can see : a smaller uoy tnan 1 am . 111 j 1 who plays with me wears a gold chain, and I want to go home." Owing to the increase in the price of lager-beer in Frank fort, on-the-Main there has been a riot of large pro portions in which sixteen breweries were turned inside out, twelve persons killed and forty wounded.

The Punishment. that gallant gentleman and wise Prince, Edward i, set out for tho-coiKpaest of the Holy Land accompanied 1 by : his queen. Among-the, many knights who followed the valiant king, was one named Sir Francis D'Essai, an'admirer of the beautiful Eva Clare, a young lady attendant upon the queen. The fair maid did not recognize his attentions, bul bestowed her smile3 upon Sir JTenry, Courtenay, a young knight distinguished for his val or,! and judgment. . D'Essai, fialSHn4ij(L.,wilthi,agerde termined to possess the young lady at air hazards As queen Eleanora and Eva, with an es cort commanded by D'Essai, were proceeding on an pilgrim age to the Jordan, a band of his satellites, dressed as Arabs, suddenly attacked them, and carried off the maid to the cas tle of tho Old Man of tho Moun tain, where D'Essai shortly re paired. Soon Sir Henry Court enay heard of the outrage and comprehended the plot. lie rescued his lady love, took the false knight prisoner, and had him conveyed to Acre for the punishment ho so richly deserv ed at the hands of his brother knights. The particulars of the awful ceremony of degradation are thus recorded : The great Church of Acre was thrown open, and knights in brilliant armor, and Templars and Hospitallers in the h'abilla ments of their orders, bishops and priests in the sacred robes, and vassals in their holliday array, crowded up the long aisles, and filled the spacious choir, as though eager to wit ncBu Boma ilenclid cvomoniaL But instead of georgeous deco rations the wainscot and win dows were draped in black, dif fusing a luneral glooin over all; and the solemn reveberation of the tolling bell seemed to sound a requiem over tho 1 grave of Hope. Sir Francis D'Essai had been tried in a council of his peers, and found guilty of treason to religion and knightly devoir, and this day, the anniversary of his admission to tho rauk of knighthood, his companions in arms, the vassals whom he des pised, and all those actuated by curiosity or eumity, were as sembled to witness his degrada tion. Eva shuddered at the terrible doom of her former lover De Courtenay, with instinctive delicacy, had obtained permis sion to absent himself from the scene on a visit to tho Holy Sepulchre. As king-of-arms and first in rank, it was the du ty of King Edward to preside over the fearful ceremony,which, by the true and loyal, was re garded as more terrible than death itself. At tho first stroke of tho great bell tho pursuivants, with Sir Francis for the last time in his knightly habilliments, conducted him from the"Cursed Tower" toward the church. As they entered the door the dole ful peal sank in silence, and af ter one awful moment his fellow knights, with broken voices, began to chant the burial serv ice. An elevated stage, hung with black, had been erected in the ccntro of. tho nave, and upon this tho pusuivants, whoso duty it was to divest him of every outward insignia of courage and truth, placed the culprit in full view of all the vast concourse. When tho chanting ceased, King Edward spoke in a voice that thrilled to every heart: "Sir Francis D'Essai 1 thou didst receive . the, sword of knightho; : 1 Iroin tho hand of the good St. Louis, dost stand bcfbr'e'W ' this -day .'attaint of ! iiWrJ.n, ft"KU A'u:. !l iiiimiiii -w. viuuj lUJU UUI, and the lady of thy love. Where fore thy peers have willed that (lie order of knighthood, by which thou hast . received all the honor ajid worship upon thy body, be. brought to nought, and thy state undone, and thou be driven forth an outcast and dis honored according to thy . base deserts." Instantly the brazen tongue from the belfry ratified the fiat and announced the hour of doom. At tho word, the squire, with trembling hand, removed the henilet, the defense of disloyal eyes, revealing the pale, and haggard countenance of tho re creant knight, and the choir resumed tho mournful dirge. Then each pursuivant advanced in his order to perform his un welcome duty. One by one the knightly trappings of D'Essai were torn from his body, and as cuirass, greaves, brassarts .and gauantlets rang upon the pave ments, the heralds exclaimed, "Behold the harness of a mis creant." Trembling and bent beneath the weight of shame the craven stood while they smote the gol den spurs from his heels, and broke his dishonored sword above his head, and the terrible requiem wailed over the perish ed emblems of his former inno cence. Tho Grand Master of Templers then entered upou the stage, bearing a silver basin fill ed with tepid water, and the herald, holding it up, exclaim ed: "By what name call men the knight before us ?" The pursuivants answered, "tho name which was given him in Baptism the name con firmed to him in chivalry is Sir Francis D'Essai." The heralds again replied: "Falsehood sits upon his tongue and rules in his heart; he is a miscreant, traitor and infidel." Immediately the Grand Mas ter, in imitation of baptism, dashed the water in his face, saying: "Henceforth be thou called by thy right name Traitor !" Then tho heralds rang out a shrill note upon the trumpets, expressive of demand: "What shall bo done with tht false hearted knave ?" King Edward, in his majesty arose, and in a voice agitated with a sense of the awful pen alty, replied : "Let him with dis honor and shame be banished from the kingdom of Christ ; let his brethren curse him, and let not tho angels of God intercede for him." Immediately each . knight drew his sword, and presented its gleaming point against the uow defenseless DJEssai,crowd ing him down the steps to the altar, where the pursuivants seized him, forced him into his cofliu, and placed him on the bier, and the attendant priests completed the burial service over his polluted name and perjured soul. At a sign from the King, the bearers, took up the bier, and all the vast con gregation followed in sad pro cession to tho city gates, where they thrust him out a thing ac cursed, while tho great bell iii tho lofty tower of tho cathedral told the talo of infamy in tones of terriblo significanao : "Gone gone gone -virtue, faith and truth 1 ' Lost lost lost honor, fame and love 1" From Gunnel's hoary height to Ta-j bor's sacred top, each hallowed hill and valo reveberatcd the awful knell : "Gone and lost lost and gone 1" and the breeze that swept the plain of Esknu lon caught up I lie dismal echo, and scorned hurrying across tho Mediteraneau to whisper to the chivalry of Europo tho dreadful story of bis. degradation '" Stung by 'tho -.weigh it li : woe L1':l.a.4.. Mett upoii hini, the miserable D'Essai rode and gazed across the plain!

Why Clover Improves the Soil Prof. Voelcker thus explains the action of clover in increas ing the fertility of soils : "All who are practically acquainted with the subject must have seen that the best crops of wheat are produced by being preceded by crops of clover growing for seed. I have come to the conclusion that the very best preparation, the best ma nure, is a good crop of clover. A vast amount of mineral ma nure is brought within reach ot the corn crop, which otherwise would remain in a locked-up condition in the soil. The clover plaiits take nitrogen, from the atmosphere, and manufac ture it into their own substance, which, on decomposition of the clover roots and leaves, produ ces abundance of amonia. In reality, the growing of clover is equivalent, to great extent, in manuring with Peruvian guano, and in this paper ot mine I show that you obtain a larger quantity of manure than in the largest dose of Peruvian guano which a farmer would ever think of applying. It is only by carefully investigating sub jects liko the one under con sideration that positive proofs are given, showing the correct ness of intelligent observers in the fact." Let Them Fight it Out. In many homes indications of a storm may be traced for days previous to its bursting forth with full force. Mean while, a stranger might judge from tho quiet, serious aspect, and the few measured words of the belligerents, that they had recently been . converted and joined the church. Pent up fury sometimes make people freezingly polite and dignified, who are never so at any other time. It is never wise for strangers to interfere in any of these storms, as they are more than likely to be the ones who receive the "ducking " For when the rafters quake, the clapboards shake, and tho very foundation seems to give way to oaths, threats, twits, flings, and imprecations, and a good Samaritan thinks that some thing must bo done at oncrj to bring about a reconciliation the, storm suddenly ceases, and tho enemies kiss and make up, and both turn and abuse tho --Elm Orlon.

It now ap pears that the smelting of iron was carried on in Egypt from the very earliest period. Mr. Charles Vincent, is an English scientific journal, sets forth some new facts in reference to this subject. In the sepulchres of Thebes may be found deline ations of butchers sharpening their knives on round bars of iron attached to their aprons. The blades of the knives are painted blue, which fact proyes that they were of steel, for in the tomb of Ramases HI, this color is used to indicate ' steel, bronze being represented by red. An English gentleman has recently discovered, near the Wells of Moses, by the. Red Sea the remains of iron works so vast that they must have employed thousands of work men. Near the works are to be found the ruins of a temple and of a barrack for the sol diers protecting or keeping in order the workmen. .These works are supposed to be - at least 3,000 years old.
