JOHN H. CHAPPELEAR, Officer of Registration. fte Hang. Alone and Eleven o’clock I was sitting alone in the little back parlor, writing a letter, all the rest of the family in bed, when the clock struck eleven. “O,” thought I, “it is growing late, I will finish my letter in the morn ing.” Just then I heard a scratching noise, which appeared to be between the shut ter and the window panes. In vain I looked up, for I could see nothing, so after a time I went on writing, saying to myself, “Another line or two, and then I will go.” Hardly had I put pen to paper be fore the noise returned. “A mouse,” said I, but on a little consideration it seemed to be a very unlikely place for a mouse. Again I went on with my letter, it was but for a minute, for the noise once more disturbed me. “Surely,” said I, “it cannot be the canary; I hope it has not been left out of its cage;” so getting on a chair I looked in the cage and found poor Jessy at*the bottom with her head under her wing. Again I took up ray pen to write a little more of my letter. All at once the noise came louder than before, and I really thought that a man’s hand on the outside was feel ing about, trying to unfasten the win dow. Up I jumped at once, unfasten the outer door, and ran into the yard, but no man was to be seen. I looked about the premises, and examined the window without making apy discovery; so, coming into the house again, I put aside my writing-desk and went to bed. For a full hour I lay awake, wonder ing what it could possibly be that had given me so much trouble, and still thinking that it must have been the hand of a robber. Indeed, when I was in bed, I fancied that I yet heard the noise. In the morning I again ponder ed the matter over in my mind, but to : no purpose. It was altogether a mystery j that I could not unravel. At last 1 ,went to Betty and asked her opinion. “O, sir, said she, ‘it is nothing in the world but the jessamine-tree, it always \ does so w'hen the wind blows I” ■ On examining the window again I ] saw a long, loose branch of the jessa- mine rubbing up and down the panes, ] and now and then tapping them, just as the wind happened to blow. Out of this jessamine bough I had made a mouse, a canary bird and the hand of a robber. Eeally I did feel ashamed ] of myself. ; Some good, however, may come out 1 of this affair if my readers will learn ] from it the folly of giving way to fool ish fears and fancies, and the wisdom * of exercising a sound judgment. The only cure for our foolish fears ! is confidence in our heavenly Father. ' Who trusts in God may camly close his eyes ' As safe, when night and darkness round him rise, * As though a thousand armed men in rows J Were standing round and guarding his repose. | Railway Duties. \ There are many passenger duties 1 which are not merely not obnoxious, i but are eminently proper; and yet how 1 many persons travel constantly by rail- | way without giving them a thought, j Byway of useful admonition, let us - specify a few: There is, first of all, the duty of not pushing at the pay place, especially if ladies chance to be in front of you. } There nextly is the duty of coming t there provided with the proper ready ( meney, so as not to keep folks waiting £ while you change a five-dollar bill. There, moreover, is the duty of ab- c stentioh from piling up your hat-boxes € and hand-bags and wraps in the um- 1 brella net so as to risk their tumbling on your neighbor’s head. t There is the duty of not quarreling \ about an open window, hut of conced- i ing the command of it to the sitter next it, facing toward the engine, who, c by long acknowledged justice, clearly 1 has the right. 1 There is the duty of obedience to the law respecting trespass which prohib- i its the removal of a coat or umbrella, £ marking the retention of a vacated i seat. There is the duty of shutting the £ door gently when you quit the train at c a waystation, and neither slamming it t with a bang nor leaving it wide open, as is done by selfish and ungentlmanly 1 snobs. 1 There is the duty of sharing your ( newspaper with any one who has none, i and offering first the leaders, and not the outside sheet. g There is,the duty of not putting your t dirty hoots upon the cushions when you wish to lay your legs up. ( There is the duty of opening the car door for any lady leaving or entering 1 the train, even at the risk of soiling your new gloves. There is reciprocally the duty on the ] lady’s part to smile her gratitude at £ least, if she does not verbally express 1 it. f There is the duty of never eatin| peppermint, or using scents or drinki ; which have a nauseous odor. 1 There is the duty of abstaining fron bothering your neighbors with remark) about the weather, or platitudinarian isms upon things in general. There is the duty of not snoring i when in company and pursuing a nighl journey. And there is, finally, the duty of re membering that delays are dangerous, especially on railways; and therefore of never keeping tne train waiting ■ while you fumble in your pocket for your ticket, which you ought to have in readiness to be produced at any mo ment. Things Worth Remembering. A correspondent takes ground a gainst high mangers for hoiees, for the reason, as he says, that they irritate the thorax and wind-pipe, and create a ten dency to heaves. His practice is to feed from a manger on a level with the feet, and not over twenty inches in front of them. This enables the horse to eat according to nature, and not af ter the manner of the giraffe. Stove luster, when mixed with tur pentine and applied in the usual man ner, is blacker, more glossy, and more durable than when mixed with any other liquid. The turpentine prevents rust, and when put on an old rusty stove, will make it look as well as new. Cure for Founder. As soon as the horse is found to be stiff swab the legs and feet with hot water so that the hand cannot bear to touch it, but it must not be so hot as to scald. After a short time the legs should be rubbed dry and the horse gently exercised. Franklin Hooker, of Cornwall, Yt., who has been making some nicely cal culated experiments as to the relative merits of deep and shallow setting of milk for butter-making, reports in fa vor of the shallow pans. An experi ment with the milk of nine cows, even ly divided, showed a difference of five pounds of butter in favor of the shallow pans. Scrambled Eggs. Melt a tablespoon ful of butter in a saucepan; beat the yolks of six eggs a few minutes; then add to them six tablespoonfuls of milk and a teaspoonful of salt; beat a little longer and pour them into the melted bßfcter. When they thicken slightly, pour in the whites unbeaten, and mix them with the yolks carefully with a fork, and serve on pieces of toast in a hot dish, or if preferred, omit the bread. The whites should not be beaten in hard, only stirred with the fork enough to mix slightly with the rest. Canning Fruit. The philosophy of canning fruit consits solely and simply in preserving it from contact with the atmosphere. In a perfect vacumn, that is, in a space free from air, the most perishable article will keep indefinite* ly. But to do this perfectly is imprac ticable. We therefore boil the fruit a short time to expel the air from it, place it in a glass or tin cans, and while it is hot and the cpn quite full, seal them up air-tight. As the fruit or other contents of the can cool and contract, and the steam condenses into water, a partial vacumn at least is procured, and the articles keep better or worse as this partial vacumn is nearer to or further from a perfect one. There is no work published that describes the process. It is one to be learned by ex perience and practice. Mold is caus ed by the growth of a fungus which needs air and moisture for its support. —*N, Y. Trilmne. A Quaker Printer’s Proverbs. Never sendeth thou,an article for publication without giving thft editor thy name, for thy name oftentimes se cures the publication to a worthless article. Thou shouldst never rap at the door of a printing office, for he that answer eth the rap sneereth in his sleeves and loseth time. Never do thou loaf abdut, ask ques tions or knock down type, or the boys will love you like they do shade trees when thou leaveth. Thou shouldst never read the copy on the printer’s case, or the sharp and hooked container thereof, or he may knock thee down. Never inquire thou of the editor for the news, for behold it is his business at the appointed time to give it to thee without asking. It is not right that thou shouldst ask him who is the author of an arti cle, for it is his duty to keep such things unto himself. When thou dost enter his office, take heed unto thyself that thou dost not Icok at w’hat may be lying open and concerneth thee not, for that is not meet in sight of good breeding. * Neither examine thou the proof sheet, for it is not ready to meet thine eye that thou mayest understand. Prefer thine own town paper to any other, and subscribe for it immediately. Pay for it in advance, and it shall be well with thee and thine. fi@“A Pittsburg man rejoices in the possession of a wife who is so affection ate that she always kisses him good bye, when he goes into the yard to feed the chickens. . Number 25. g Truth. :s Strong in the goodness of his cause; with his back to the throne of God and n his foot on the rock of truth, a man :s can stand against the world, i- Truth, by w homsoever spoken, comes from God; it is, in short, a divine es g sence. t I have seldom known any one who deserted the truth in trifles that could be trusted in matters of importance. 3, If Archimedes upon discovering of ea mathematical truth, was so ravished g that he cried out, “I have found it, I r have found it!” what pleasure must e the discovery of a Divine truth give to a sanctified soul. It is not enough that we swallow truth; we must feed upon it, as insects do on the leaf, till the whole heart, - colored by its qualities, shows its food e in every fibre. e Truth is the band of union and the - basis of human happiness. Without ) this virtue there is no reliance on lan b guage, no confidence in friendship, no i security in promises and oaths. a- t<> , The Three Friends. Trust no friend before thou hast tried him, for they abound more at • the festal board than at the prison ‘ door. ' A certain man had three friends; two of them he loved warmly; the other he I regarded with indifference, though that one was the truest of his well-wishes. The man was summoned before atribu s nal, and though innocent, his accusers ! were bitter against him. “Who among you,” said he, “will go > with me and bear?witness for me ? For • my accusers are bitter against me, and . the judge is displeased.” The first of his friends at once ex cused himself from accompaning him ' on the plea of other business. The , second followed him to the door of the ■ tribunal; there he turned back and went his way, through fear of the of fended judge. The third, on whom he relied the least, spoke for him, and bore witness to his innocence, so that the judge dismissed and rewarded him. Man has three friends in this world; how do they demean themselves toward him in the hour of death, when God calls him to judgment? His best be loved friend, gold, is the first to leave him, and accompanies him not. His friends, kinsmen,' accompany him to the portal of the grave, and then turn back to their own houses. .The third, whom he is most neglectful of, is his good works, they alone go with him to the Judge’s trone; they stand be fore him and obtain mercy and grace. Keeping Sweet Potatoes. North Carolina is famous for its ex cellent potatoes, and in reply to a que ry as to the best method of keeping them over winter for seed the follow ing spring, the north Carolina Agri culturist recommends that they be gathered carefully; that is, when it is a dry day, and take care not to bruise them in handling them. Then store them in bulk where they may be kept dry, and at a temperature of 40 to 50 degrees; 45 degrees is about right, and the more uniform the temperature the better. They must be kept dry as well as warm. They should be put in bulk where they are kept, and handled as little as possible, being dug before the ground freezes, though if the frost has blackened the vines, it does not neces sarily harm the tubers. After the sweating process is concluded, throw over them dry loam, or in the South they are covered slightly with the foli age of pines and then with about four inches of earth, ventilation being left . until they cease sweating. But if you insure them dryness and 45 degrees warmth, and do not bruise them in handling them, they may be kept as well as Irish potatoes. The People’s Friend. It is susceptible of easy proof that the Sewing Machine has been a great er blessing to the masses of American people than any invention of the pres ent century. Nothing else has done so much to save the lives and health of the wives and mothers, the patient, overworked women of the land, who, as a class, most needed relief from the burdens of everyday life. Every father and husband fails in his duty if he neglects to endow his home with such a triumph of science as the Howe Sew ing Machine. It is the cheapest and best sewing machine ever offered.—• Call and see them, or take one on tri al from Mr. Joseph T. Bailis, Port Tobacco, who sells at New York prices and on very easy terms. The South ern people should bear in mind that many machines are sold in the South at an advance of fifteen dollars over New York prices. JBSr*lf the man who has got to the top of the hill by honesty is ashamed to turn about and look at the lowly road he has traveled, he deserves to be taken by the back of the neck and hurled to the bottom again. figg“The damsel who was accused of breaking a young man’s heart, has been bound over in the bonds of mat | rimony to keep the pieces. takes two boys to go to school now-a-days—one to study and the oth er to carry the books.
