The next trouble I lnpl was with a fel

to dig it for twenty dollars, and I was to
pay him in meat and meal, and sieh like.
The vagabond kept gitrin along until he
' got all the pay, but hndent dug nary foot

’ and sued him as fillers, to wit:
Qkl John Hunks to Bill Arp. J)r.

Well, Hanks he hired a cheap lawyer, who
rard round extensively, and sed a heap oi
funny things at my expense, and finally
dismissed my case for what he called its

The next law ease L had 1 gained it
aii !;y myself by the force of .sirkumstiui
ees. i bought a man's ’.tote that was given
for the hire ox a nigger boy, T >ik. T in din
lie wouldent pay me, 1 sued him before
old Squire -McGinnis, befeevin it was sicli
a dead thing that.the devil eouldent keep
me out of a vordik. The felier’s attorney
plead fai-hmi of •consideration, and turn eat
fukhim, and tynia fofiria. and infancy, and
that the nigger’s urine, wasenfc Dik but
Richard. The old squire was a powerful
seech, and hated the yankcios ainazin. So.
after the lawyer had got through his
pceejt and hashed up his roudin from a
bookealied -Greelileaf,’* 1 rose forward to
iiti attitood. Stretcliin forth my arm. ses
1, “Squire ’McGinnis, L would ask, sur, it
this is a time in the history of our afflicted
e.uuutrv when Federal law books should
be admitted in a Southern patriot’s court ?
Havent we seceded forever from their foul
domination ? Don't our flag wave over
Fort Sumpter, and what, sur, have we got
to do with Xortliei lawz ? On the very first
page of the gcntlciben’s book I seed the
lgune of the city of Besting. Yis, s.nr, it
was writtcu in Besting, publish ed in Boa
ting and sold in Busting, where they don't
know no more about the hire of a nigger
than an ox knows the man who will tan
his hide.” ! sed^ome more things that
was pmted and patriotiK. and closed my
irgument by handing tlie book to the
spare, He put on bis spcktakles. ami af
ter looking at the book about a miuot ses
‘‘Mr. Arp, you can have a judgment and
1 hope that from henceforth and forever,
no lawver will parsoom to come before this
honorable court with pisen dokuments to
prove his case. If lie do this court will
take it as a insult and send him to jail.’’
I look upon this case as a warning to all
folks who gamble in law, to hold a good
hand and play it well. High jesticc and
patriotism are winnin trumps.
After this I had a difficulty with a man
by the name of Kohen, and 1 thought I
wouldent go to law, hut would arbi trate:
I had bought Tom Swill ins wheat at a dol
lar a bushel if hr ran dent do any better,
and if he could do better he was to cum
hack and give vie the. preference. rJ he
stump went off and sold the wheat to Ko
heu for a dollar and five cents, and Kohen
knowd all about this contrakt with me.
.Me and him like to have fit, and perhaps
would jf I hadent been puny hut we final
ly left it all to Josh 1 iiiins to arbitrate.
Old Josh deliberated on the thing for three
days and nights, and finally brot in an
Ward that Kohen should have the wheat
nd 1 should ham: tin preference. I haint
i ubmiued no more eases to arbitration
nee, and my advice-to all pcepul is to ar
. "trate nuthin if your case is honest, for
.1 ] ere ain’t no judge there to keep one man
rI till frikin the other. An honest man
e n’t stand no chance no where exseppin

Protection ;i Lo^s to (lie ( o: sinner,
and Waste to the Country,
Whenever the imposition of n protective j
duty encourages the manufacture of an article j
at home at a cost greater than the foreign I
article could he obt ained without. I hi protpc- j
live duty, (he difference? in price is not mere
ly a roSs to the consum'd', it is a waste to the
whole country.
Suppose that a European manufacturer cr.n
produce cloth ho as to .soil'me here enough to I
make a coat for $10, while the native, inanutac- |
turcr cannot, to obtain a proper remuneration,
sell me the same quantity for lo-s than $15
Then to secure to the latter (he market, wc \
put a duty of 50 per cent on the imported fab
vie, so that I must pay $15 for the material of
u coat, native or foreign. Now if, Under these
circumstances, l purchased foreign cloth, the
additional $5, (hough lost (o me, is not abso
lutely wasted, for the Government' gets it.:
but if 1 buy. native doth, the addition is sheer
waste. 1 loose it. hut the producer docs not
get it, since by our supposition the price of
$15 affords him only a fair remunerating
profit: the extra $5 representing only the
greater expense of production here; the los:t
entailed by directly producing that which
can be obtained cheaper by exchanges - and
commodities. To he sure, if the native manu
facturer is shamming — if the extra $5 more
represents tlur extra Cost, of production -l
portion of it goes into his pocket at tny ex
pense ; but this state of tilings can only lie
temporary, unless be is able to keep his gains
entirely secret, or Lo preserve a monopoly’ in
his business, since the natural tendencies of
trade and capital will attract other persons to
the business, until the profits are reduced In !
the same rates of remuneration as ii: oflier j
occupations. Except, then, when we tempor
arily increase tho gains of some producers at,
the expense jvf tho community, the extra price
iiwinr to DVoteetion is waste. Uirectlv to the I
country, and indirectly to (lie world.
There may, indeed, bo-time : in which mnr- ]
al reasons, overcoming the. economical one*. !
make it worth our while to commit cliis waste. '
But these cases are always exceptional and |
abnormal, and burden of proof ip every case
falls on Lhe advocate of protection. Free
trade is always right in theory ; it is the nor- ^
rnal condition.
The notion that we are to get the better of
foreigners by selling them more we buy from
them, is founded on the fallacious supposition
that national wealth is measured by the
amount of money in hands. Money's worth,
not money, is the true standard of national
wealth. If actual money were the standard,
every nation would bo bankrtipt, for not one i
possesses coin enough to pay its way, even j
during a few mouths.

Poimlitr Fallacies.
That warm air must he 'impure, and that ]
consequently, it is luivtiut to sleep in a tom
paratively warm room. A warm room is as
easily vent dated a cool one. The w arm air i
of a close vehicle is less injurious, he it ever
bo foul from crowding, than to ride and sit
still and feel uncomfortably cold (Ur an hour. J
Tlid worst that can happen from a crowded
conveyance is a fainting spell : while, from \
silting even less than an hour in a still, chilly ■
atmosphere, lias iiuluced, attacks of pneu
monia, that, is, iullammation of the lungs,
which often prove fatal in three or four-days,
it is always positively injurious to sleep in a j
close room where water freeze**,; because smd^
a degree, of Told causes the negatively poi
sonous carbonic acid gas of a sleeping mum
to settle near the floor, where it is breathed
ami re-breathed by the sleeper, and is capable]
of producing typhoid fevers in a few hours.
Hence, there i* no advaritni'O. an 1 n'wevs
danger especially to weak persons, in sleeping
in an atmosphere colder than the freezing
That jl is necessary to the proper and
efficient vent ilation1 of a room, even in Warln
weather, that a window or dodr should be left
open : this is always hazardous to the sick and
convalescent. Quite as safe a plan of ventila
tion, and an efficient, is to keep a lamp or a
small fire burning in the lireplacq. This ere- ;
ates n draft, and carries bad air and gases up j
the chimney.
That out door exercise before breakfast is
healthful. It is never so. And, from the
very nature of tilings, is hurtful, especially to
persons of delicate health; although the very
vigorous may practice it with impunity. In
winter the body is easily chilled through and

with a good warm breakfast ; and in warm
weather, miasmatic and malarious speedily
act upon tin; empty and weak stomach in a
way to vitiate the circulation and induce fever
and dysentery : entire families, who have ar
ranged to eat breakfast before leaving the
house and to take supper before sundown, have

while the whole com i unity aroud them was

That whatever lessens is “good” for it and, l
if persevered in, will euro it. On the con- |
trary, all coughs are soonest cured by promo
ting and increasing them : because nature on- !
deavors by the cough to help bring up the
phlegm ami yellow matter which is in the
lungs, as the lungs cannot heal while that
matter is there. And as it cannot be got rid
of without coughing there is the sooner it is;
got rid of, the sooner are the lungs cleared out
for the fuller and freer reception of pure air, j
which is their natural food. The only rente-,
dies which can do any good in coughs are such
as loosen the phlegm, and thus less Cough is j
required to bring it up. These remedies are
warmth, outdoor exercise, and anything which
slightly n:tu«»ates.
Hints on Pruning.
1. Nevor use an axe or a hatchet in pruning.
The Mows struck jar the fibres, ami the whole
Work with such tools is too violent and harsh.
2 Take oil' (he limbs as nearly as p, dde
on level with I he brandies Which yon out from.
It will then heal witch ipiicker and t-moothe.r.
2 Never leave a stub that is, do not leave
a part of the branch between the pla1 e where
spurs conib out, l>tit cut close to the spur it
self, and then fhe'wound will heal over. The
reason lor this is that no action exist in a per*
lieu of thebraneii left, unless there isa.joint,
a place where a spur ootocs out, and whc.ro
leaves will grow beyond it. In prunin': a grape
vino, it is customary,to leave half an inch to
an inch under the supposition Unit it bill pi-e
vent bleeding.
4 Never pruno a ti de when tied sap will
keep the saw wet, as it will in March,
April, and .May and even in February, if
there is a succession of four or five days of
moderate weather aud a bright sum.
