There's one thing to the ladies I plainly wish to say, I'm a m:an of no pretenses ; I'm lifty, if a day : I'ml neither gay nor ainiable. I'ni fusy, and I'pi platin ; But, girls, you needn't plot for me-al plotting is in vain. 1 I never see the brightest eyes, and all their witcherv Is wasting ammunuition, if its aim is hurt ing me,; I never see the reddest lips Iii proof against all smiles; I rather think I'm not the man for any woman's wiles. I can sew on my own buttons, my stock ings I can mend, And women's hands around my room are not what I intend; I want no knitted, netted things, no traveling bags, no wraps, No slippers and no comforters, no paint ed plaues, no caps. I buy the things that I require ; so, ladies. hear me say, All such attentions spent on me are sim ply thrown away So shake your curls and give your gifts. bewilder all vou can,. But just rememnber, if you please, that I auu not the nmaii. I've heard there's twenty-one old maids consider me there "fate' And clever widows live or six that wish with me to mate ; There's pretty school-girls who insist I "must have had some loss," And say I'm so "romantic" when I'm only tired or cross. But, ladies, all attentions from this date I hope will cease ; The only favor that I ask, is to be left in peace ; For I consider one thing sure as any thing can be- t I will not marry any girl, and none shall t marry me. * * * * * * * That's just exactly what he said about a year ago, Now, if you could but see his rooms, they - are a perfect show Of netted things, and knitted things, I and painted plaques and screens, a Of photographs of famous men, and Beauty's living queens ; While on the hearth-stone sits his wife she's sweet and good, I know, And if you tell him of the words he t said a year ago, t He answers you, without a blush, "Oh, a that's the usual way ; -No one believes a single word old bache. lors may say ; When the right angel comes along, they C marry any day."

Prof. Tyndall suggests that, just as the soil may be so effectually robbed of some essential ingredient by one a. bundant crop as to be incapable of pro, ducing another, so in the human eya. tem a parasitic disease may so com. pletely exhaust the blood of some in, t gredient necessary to the growth and propagation of the parasite that the produ.tion of a second crop in fatal r >r considerable quantity may be im ossible. It would thus appear that protective vacination or inoculation is simply the introduction into the d blood of weakened and comparative ly harmless disease germs to con- I smre the material which might be ome food for similar germs In a more vigorous and dangerous con- t ition. Wixn Womc~.-A gale at East St. ouis in 1871, according to Mr. c, J Shaler Smith, overturned a locomno tive, exerting a force of no less tha~n a 93 pounds per square foit. At St. I Charles a jail was destroyed In 1877, I the pressure required being 84 poundsa per square foot. At Mar~sbt4eld, in I 1880, a brick mansion was leveled,a the force neceisary being 58. pounds I per square foot. iBelow these extra rdinary pressures, Mr. Smith has instancedi npmerous cases of trains blown off rails, and bridges, etc., a blown down, by gales of 24 to 81 pounds per square fOOt.

GREAT Wons.-According to Mr. 1 J. E, B3eddard, a London geologist, earthworms two feet in length havp been found in the British Isles, and various species as large or larger are known to exist in South America, Western Africa, Australia and New Zealand. The largest species known, however, inhabits South Africa. F'or ty years ago a specirgen was de?

I rl have now arrived at that age and ar frame of mind that I submit to any -a- thing-anything to plhase the chil dren. And so when they got their ml mother's consent the matter was all ar arranged and the company invited ,o without consulting me. There was a m.- spare room in the house and as I had of some writing to do, I adjourned my ie self there to have a quiet time. While ot I was ruminating before the fire and ,- su,oking the pipe of peace and tran qnility, the young folks began to gather and, before I knew it, the young ladies were ushered into my .room as a reception room, and I was kindly informed that I would have to Id vacate. With a sigh of resignation I es retired and poked around generally. r 1 wish I had a room-a room of my k- own-and Mrs. Arp says she wisbes Y. she had a room-a room of her own. ti But she can't have one. She never i- will have one, for children and grand or children would be lost and I would L+ be lost. She can't slip off to Nabor e Freeman's but what a dozen want to ag know where she is and when she is Ys coming back. The dog and the cat =U follow her. No, she will never have a '- room to herself. of But I found good company at the p- candy pulling and bad a good time r anyhow, for I do love these naborly et visits. I love to see the young folks rt, happy, and I love to discourse poli. >r- tics and ciops and naborhood news .n with the older ones. But this candy ic business is not all serene, one of the ig girls burned her hand dreadfully and ie is still carrying it in a bandage. And u then it is so messy, as Mrs. Arp says. tl The children get candy all over the I floor, and the tables and bureau. It 1- sticks to my stockings yet when I ' get ready to go to bed. It melts and r. smokes on the hearth. The dishes are all daubed and hard to clean up ie again. The door knobs and dipper at handles are sticky, and they keep d sticky as long as the candy lasts. But every pleasure has its draw-back. Af e ter every dinner the dishes are to be e washed. After every repose the bed t has to be made up. We ride and e drive and then the horse has to be d put up and fed. We dance to sweet music and have to pay the fiddler. We go on a picnic of an excursion and come home tired and weary. Ev ery pleasure seems to be followed by pin or by trouble, just as the night follows the day. But still it Is right, 1g for it is natnie, We live in contasts r 0d enjoy them. Suppose we do bunt all day and find no game. Hope is a good thing, and it was one of the questions we used tQ debate when I was a boy, "whether the pursuit or othe possession gave the most pless ure.'' I took the af#rmative one time wih Iwas pursuing rmy sweetheart eihlove and hope and devotion, and I argued ray side with earnest elo o,~uence. But when I lost her and an ote*,io got possession, 1. flop *pad over* to the other side, In a year or so I recovered and piursued Mrs. Arp with fear an tre;pbling, and when I possesed her I was happy. The pursuit is a. liyely, interesting d andI uncertain businees, where a tsweet ',ounig maiden is concerned, d but the p,ossession $s solid and sure o and never gives out. ou ~.We had a frolic atorcountry' Sacademy last week. The night you were all jubilating in Atlanta we were q1uietly enjoying Qurselves near our Shomes with our wives and children. it The ladies, God bless them, ingited rh us to a supper in the academy, a 'u. splen4id supper, a feast of good y. tbings with no headache ip thepm My Sfolks killed a turkey and baked some 3. bake og the peighbozs did likewih-e, y and they ggt Qysters somnewhe e and at long~ table. were spread and giga~ned id with ggod things and we thought it n. was all a~ free show pntell we got ae there and 'found a door-leeper and had to pay to go in. Th~eu they tin isheA up with bills of fare, and to everything there wyas a price, but we couldent back out, for the sight and -the savory smell provoked en appe tite. After I had made them a little of speech, which I had prepared for the Lie occasion, one kind lady manager con Lie ducted me to a seat and said I was be her gnest and the choipest viands 3d should cost mne nothing; with this - *ssurance i partook amagingly and le feast'ed to m,y entire content, and ot about that time another kind lady Q presented me iny bill and called for ry a dollar-a whole dolls~r, and said I had oysters twice and turkey twice. r- I paid it with cheerful alacrity, but n somehow I don't appreciate so many or managers on such occasions. Never to theles:, I had the honor of being one es fair lady's guest even though I was id another's victim, Then I paid for e-r Mr's. Arp and the children and tho't p- I was done, but they had a fish pond be in one corner, behind a curtain, and is the children wanted to drop a line a- just to see what they would catch a well that cost some dimes and next n, came a raffe for a fine, large eghe, and ly they all wanted achance, and Mrs. L59 4rp took a notion she could throw a-* 18 with three dice, and shore enough she threw four and retired with ma. bo troniy dignity and said she didn't ,* want the cake nohow. Well, the show as went on, and on untell they got all er our change and had enough money dto plaster the school-house ."I here was gocd mnsic thera ina the true. -. teenvere 'coinulted by the young Sfolks about a danee, just alittle edAtic t,o wind un 'on, but they said "no", and they said it like the meant it, and I reck-on they did, anr the young folks surrendered and said well, if we can't dance we can have a little twistifieation. Before any, body knew what that meant the flu was cleared and the mnsic began and the twistification, too, and they twis ted ali around and about, and cross el over, and hands all round, and Ciangild p trtners, and promenade all, and parly voo Fiaricais, and I don't know what all, and the solemn trus tecs looked on with enjoyment, and were satisfied because it was only a twistification. Well, it was a goodh_ frolic and no f.eliigs hurt. and we all Went howe happy. but an fal scarce of change. GCov. Biown has got some preferred stock il our school h,onse. WYe preferred his money to anybody's for he had more of it. if we had had hin there, with his swallow tail coat on, we would have preferred some wore. When he gives us two bun dred dollars more we'll name it the Brown institute, but not till then. The name is for sale, but we are not going to do like those Dalton folks and name our sclhool for him before we get the moji v. They have never got any yet. Gov. Brown don't pay for honors when he can get them fur nothing. Old father D.obbin is our rich man up here, and we are going to try him for an endowment and call it the Dobbins old field school. He likes old-field schools, but he has no use for colleges or seminaries or universities. He says he has watched them for forty years, and every year they turn out a splendid crop of ele gant, high-strung vagabonds, with but few exceptions. But education is the Amejican watchword now, and we wili have to conform. If the na tion gets an overdose, 1 reckon we wil; find it out sooner or later. Birn Axp. RECUPERATIVE POWER. One of the manifestations of the impatience of our people is that when one "run's down," as the saying goes, instead of taking. constitutional rem edies that slowly but surely repair waste, to build up the system, the practice is to seek violent and pow erful incitements to strength, which only prove delusive, and do more harm than good. Tue business man who at last finds that he is losing vi tality, and that he has sacrificsd health to greed, endeavors to make atonement in a day or, at furthest, in a week, by heavy doses of quinine, or by brandy, and the young man who has degenerated by sloth or more active vices, overdoes the exercise of the gymnasium in the vain effort to regain health h, a coup cretat. Ever the same story of national impatience; the feverish alacrity to ruin the phys. iqne by late hours, tobacco, rapid eat. ing and diveis dissipations, and the absurd ael 1 to restore its functions while a locomotive is naking its dis tanee between New York and Chica go. Nature has ways of her own, and even the enterpFising Yankee can not wake an oak~ ti ee grow to ma turity in a~ week, or put such a ms chine ce the human body in perfect workiing ord'.er in that time, after it has onoe been abused and utterly deranged. Even the wealthy invalid cannot make good the dr-afts he has drawn too often atnd too ra&hly, by the magic spell of a Boropsan tour. The exhausted body makes its lam eintatiop heard in~ a French boule vard as w'eil as at home, and there is no curative property in a foreign rai! wav car. Yr-ars of transgreson need at the least months of expiation, and the man or the woman wbo lays the foon dation of restored health in six months does well. Meanwhile the simple remedies, air, water and whole some food, sleep, judicious exercise. and time to back them, will be fruit foi of result. Be patient and be of good cheer; don't use your sub stance on qnack nostrums; study the matter of diet, the efHcao,y of water and a coarse crash towelj the venti lation of yonr slee.ping chamber; the value of the dumb:bells, and for toDic or alterative the superiority of the mineral spr-ings to all the dr-ugs you~ can buy. Set your peroid for a gene ral improvement is mi onths ahead inst&ad~ of si; days, and you will es, cape the discouragement and the despair which beset the impatient Amer-ican when he finds that his health has run down.
