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.

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

went his way, through fear of the of

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.—•

many machines are sold in the South
at an advance of fifteen dollars over
New York prices.
