OFFICIAL JOURNAL or THE PARISH Why is a woodpecker like a tramp f Because heo bores for his grub. It is only the female sex who can rip, darn and tear without being considered profane. A man can dam a little, but it must be a mill-dam. A young fellow was the other day ral lying another on having a large month. "Yes," was the reply, "but the Lord had to make yours small so as to give plenty of room for your cheek." Long John didn't to go the Third ward on last Saturday. Ilis newly fledged poIpularity does not extent that far yet. As soon as the boys are ready to stomach hinm, he'll go. Barkus is willing. An unsuccessful vocalist went to the poor-house and delighted the inmates with his singing. lie said it was a nat ural thing for him to do,. as he had been singing to poor houses ever since he be gan his career. A Princeton professor, remonstrating with a sophomore for creating a disturb ance in the class-room, laid his hand in :sinuatingly upon the refractory one's shoulder with the remark: "My dear young man, the devil has hold of you." At the Yorktown celebration a "blars ted Ilinglishman," after surveying the situation and surroundings, said: "I can well understand now why Lord Corn wallis surrendered Yorktown. IfI owned such a place I would give it up myself." "There is something inexpressibly touching in the fallen leaves," sighs an esteemed author. There is, there is. It's when you slip on one of them on a wet morning, and touch the hard pave ment with the end of yourself. The two-bits subscriptions are played out. Democrats, will rest easy, for the balance of the campaign. Scott Gordon hae enlisted in "long John's" combina tion. No more of those Saturday night colored Democratic hop. A loss that will prove a gain. "The Banner of '79," a beautiful and excellently well written article which we published in our last, was from the pen of the giftet& editor of the Baton Rouge CAPITOLIAN, and should have been credited to that journal.-[Alexau dria Democrat. "Ma," said an inquisitive little girl, "will rich and poor folks live together when they go to heaven I" "'Yes, my dear, they will be all alike there." "Then, ma, why don't rich and poor Christians associate together hero f" The mother did not answer. A tutor of a college, leturing a young man on the irregularities of his conduct, added with great pathos: "The report of younrvices will bring your father's gray hairs with sorrow to the grave." "I beg your pardon,.sir," replied the pupil, "my father wears a wig." An American tourist was visiting Na ples and sa.w Vesuvius during a erup tion. "Htve you any thing likahat in the New World ?" was the questionofan Italian aspectator. "No," replied Jona thanI, "but I guess we have a Niagara that would lint it out in live minutes!" Until a strong Inoependent-Republi can platform is erected in the Third ward, Long John says there is no place for him to slreadl "that foot" in that noighbor hood. lIe's prepared to go though, any time, where tihe boys are ready to hear Ilis celchrated lecture "on free ballot and a fair oount at tile polls." It is hobetter not to ask too many ques tioms abo,lt tile future. A curious fellow - -whose wife disliked his wishy-washy indlepenident political course-asked her, "My dear, what kind of a stone yo you think they will give me when I am dead and gone f" She answered coolly, "Blrimistone, sir." We are requested to inform our colored voters that Scott Gordon and Ebo Blood ha've not been instructed to join thile In dependent-Republicans by the Demo crats fiorthe purlpose of breaking up thlleir combination. They are there for thelir coun(try's good only. By special rcsolution they are forbidden from re ellistilng inl the Democratic ranks. A curious experiment was made with cats recently iuLuttich, Germany. Thir-. ty-Ysoven of them were put into bags and takenl several mlilCes into thlb country, whlere they were released. oWithin three hours the first cat had found its way hom1e, land before twenty-four hours had elapsed, every one of thile others had re turned. "I aro,,n at six o'clock this morning and sce whlat I found in taking a walk inl tle hIighway," said thle fond father, displaying a silver dollar, "is that not proof of thloetadvisability of early rising ?" "No," repllied thle son. "And why I" asked thle father, just as people doin fablesand Snday school stories. "Because the fel low wio lost it," boldly replied the son, "g'ot up too blamed early for his own good." A youllng woman at Smyrna, N. Y., had a dream, many years ago, of eight men stalldinug i row before her, with out stretcheld handlls. She interpreted this to meanmk that she would have eight hus l~n1ds. Her seventhlhusband dlied lately, anId, altlhoulgh she is now 84, she is confi dent that tlh drealnm will be fulfilled. o All tile blushing widow has to do is to co(nvince the avmirage Cincinnati Radical that she is rich. * 'The other night at a London club some Amierlicans were bioasting about their in velltions, and the wonderful machines to be founld in thle States; one of themn told of the wt'll-known mincing umachine which, a live pig being introduced at one 'end, tlurnis out the animal in sausage at the other. An Irishman, who was not goilng to hIave the Yankees riding rough shod over every other nation, turned on them and1 said: "HBedad, we've got the samne machine in Ireland, only ours is more perfect, sure, for if you don't like thle sausages you can put them back into tle machinle and by reversing the action they'll conme out a live pig again where h' went in." SchlooL-Master's Conquest Bronson Alcott, of Bostoln once told Joseph Cook, and Joseph Cook told every body he met, that he made it a regula tion in his school that, if a pupil violated a rule, the master should substituto his own voluntary sacrificial chastisoment for that pupil's punlishment; and, this regulation almost Christianized his school. "One day," Mr. Alcott said, I called up before me a pupil who had violated an important rule. All the school was looking on, and know the rule and the penalty. I put the ruler into the offend er's hand; I extended my own hand; I told him to strike. Instantly I saw a struggle begin in his face. A new light sprang up in his countenance. A new set of shuttles seemed to be weaving a new nature within him. I kept my hand extended and the school was in tears. The boe struck once and burst into tears. He seemed to be in a bath of fire, which was giving him a nature. He seemed transformed by the idea that I should suffer chastisement in place of his punishment, and ever afteeIvas the most docile pupil in the schodl, though lie had boon the rudest." Now this is very affecting and: reason able and striking. No one can read the incident and very readily forget it; and it contains a lesson that every school teacher can certainly read with profit. The incident camno to the knowledge of Willis K. Stoddard, who for some years past has been teaching a district school in Flint river township, in Iowa. Ile read this extract frim one of Joseph Coook's lectures, and never forgot the great moral it.conveyed. Young Mr. Stoddard had some few pretty hard boys in school. They were big and noisy and turbulent. He had reasoned with them,he hadexpostulated, he had begged and wept. He had whip pod them until his arms ached, and the directors had threatened to dismiss him for unnecessary severity and absolute cruelty, and the boys grow worse and worse every day. But when he was at his wits' end, and seriously thinking of running away and losing all his back salary, rather-than stay at school another day, he read this incident, and it gave his troubled mind now lights - lie treas ured it up, and thought it might help him. lie had treasured it up probably half a day when, one bright June afternoon, Samuel Johnson, the biggest and strong est and worst of all the big, bad boys, violated all the rules of the school, one after the other, as fast as lie could think of thenm, and wound up by tearing seven leaves out of his geography. These he crammed into his mouth, and, when he had chewed them into a pulp, lie took the "wad" into his hand and propelled the whole mass with great violence into the cars of Ellis Hlaskell, who alhough also big and bad-a little bad-was not pos sessed of suflicie t presence of mind to look calm and unconscious under this avalanche, merely because the eye of his teacher was upon him, and he according ly signified his very natural dismay and astonishment by a universal howl. Mr. Stoddard called Samuel Johnson up to tVcsk, and, more calmly than was his custom under such circumstances, told him to go out and bring a switch. The pupils noticed there was soniothilg unusually gentle in the teacher's mianner, and it struck Samuel Johnson very forci bly that it was certailnly very mnuch out of the ordinary nmethod of procedure for thie culprit to be accorded the privilegoe of cutting his own switch. Buthe wasnot the boy who would fail to applreciato and mnake the best use of his privileges and opportunities. So he did not idly waste his time, but presently returned with a very' peaceful-looking switch in dleed-a switch apparently far gone iu the last stages of consumption--the sick est switch! "Now," said Mr. Stoddard, with a gen tle, compassionate intonation, "strike mc!" Samuel Johnson, who had already bc gun to unbutton his own jacket, opeuned his mnouth wide, and the whole school stared in speechless amazemenlt. Mr. 8toddard calmly repeated his order. lHe thbught he could see the "now set of shutters beginning to work." "Some one," he said--and a woman could not have spoken more tenderly-"sopue one must suffer for the infraction of the rules. I do not punish and of you for any pleas ure it gives me to see you suffer. I do it because justice demands it. Sonime one must be putished, and I will suf fer chastisoment in your stead." The teacher saw "new light sprung up" in Samuel Johnson's countenanc[. The boy looked at his teacher and Ithon at his switch. The teachor could "see a struggle begin in his face." Presently the tearp sprang to Samuel1 Johnson's eyes, and hesaid, in a voice msuflused with anxiety, "Hadn't I better go out' andget a bigger switchl" The teacher softly told him he might do so if he wished, and Samuel Johnson went out and was gone ten minites-ten long, anxious, quiet wondering minutes. When he returned, the school smiled. He carried in his hand a switch that looked like a Russian Peace Comnumis sioner. lie had cut it out of an Osage hedge, and, when lie he hold it up where the sunlight could fall upon it, it looked wickeder than John Morrissey's fare par lors. It was about seven feet long, an inch and three-tluarters thick at the butt, and was limber and twisted, and had knots and knobs clear downto the point. The boy's face shone with a bright glow of conscientious satisfaction as he bal ancedl this switch and dreLw it through his hard, nmnscular hands. Mr. Stoddard stood up and 'folded his arms. Then he said, with a had, sweet look at the culprit, "Now strike me." The sncl l just sat still and held its breath. Samuel Johnson did not act in greedy and unseemly haste, as though he. were meanly and wickedly glad to have this opportunity of hlitting his deair teacher. He conducted himself like a boy who has a painful duty to perform, but is com pelled by conscientious motives to per form it thoroughly. Hlie pulled off his jacket; he rolled up his sleeves; he took a two-handed grasp on the switch. Tu * hlie changed the position of his feet to get a better brace. Then he drew a long, deep breath; rai iled5 hlrt h d si;aif l 6i switch just shrieked through the air like a wild, mad, livingthing. Old Mr. Hargis, the senior director, who lives only a mile' and a half away from the school house, says hewasoutin' the field plowing, nid'when Mr. Stod dard let off his first yell, the old man's first impression was that the schoolhouse had been struck by lightning. The clear sky, however, disproved the theory; and the next time the teacher shouted, the director was convinced that a steamboat had gone astray and was whistling for a landing somewherQ up the creek. While he was trying to hold his terrified horses, another volley . of sound came sweeping over the land like a vocal cy clone, and old Mr. Iosengae, who had been deaf twenty yoere, came running over, saying be believed they were fight ing down at the quarries. By this tizeip they were joined bythe rest of the neigli bores, and the excited populace went thronging on toward the school-horse. In accepting Mr. Stoddard's resigna tion, the directors conlsiderately allowed. him pay for the full term, and in a series of complimentary resolutions spoke of his efficiency in the 'highest terms, although it transpired that thoboard was privately agreed, after all the facts had been laid before it, that he was too much of a "nt'ral born fool" to suit a practi cal locality. Mr. Stoddardtoldhisland lady that he needed rest, and that good hearted old investigating committee was amazed to discover that Mr. Stoddard rested, and even went to bed, by leaning up face-foremost against the mantle piece in his room. Meeting a newsboy Whose face was scarred with scratches, and looked like a map of some great railroad. center, a Register reporter asked. the youngster what the matter was? "Follar spoke disrespectful of my sister; said he'd bet she was cross-eyed, and I sailed in." "Is your sister cross-eyed I" 'asked the re porter. "lain't got no sister," was the reply; "it was the principlo of the thing atI licked for." The newest definition of black vomit is the exodus to Kansas.
