seem so from thc following free translation of
j Horace's XXX Ode, Ii. Ill :
1 Xot enduring brass, nor pyramidal pile,
Could so fix r.;c on thc role of never-dying
As the fadeless glories that entwine my poet's
name :
For these, like their own immortal mind,
Yield m^t to ruthless time, nor beating rain,
nor driviug wind,
Son orunix mr-riar! Oblivion's stream.
Whatever else it claims, must-leave untouched
thc poet's dream.
When you Capitol shall fail to own her priest
and silent virgin train,
My glory thc.' may cease to weave its ever
lengthening, ever-b nigh ten f?g chain.
Xor shall he who first taught Talia's mas? to
warbie Grecia's songs.
Though low of birth, be without a name

Indulge 0, Muse, my merit's boastful claim,

A Story rrii.h a Powerful "Kora"".
Let 35veryboc?y Read.
Once upon a time, about tho bo^-;::
ning ofthe year ISSI, th ero lived a j
lean and hung-!y cou;.try editor; Ail
through iiic year I-SSO he liad worked
hard, and had lived for the most part
on turnips, dried apples and herrings.
Thanksgiving day and Christmas clay
had come and gone, and on those oc?
casions the editor had worked off the
best Jukes Le could getup as to turkics
and cranberry sauce, lie got up these
jokes mainly for the purpose of making
the general public believe that lie din?
ed sumptuously on those occasions.
But the fact of the matter is, the only
change of diet thc editor had on each
of th ose days, was that he mixed his
turnips and dried apples together, and
called ihe mixture by a beautiful
French name. It is true that tiie
editor was not able to eat much of his
new dish, even after he hud given it
a beautiful name. But this did not
matter much. Ile calmly atc his her?
ring and congratulated himself that
this French delicacy of his was a dish
that few of 'his acquaintances had ever
tat do "vii io.
But we must go on with our story.
A.s we have remarked before, our nar?
rative c?mi?ences within.; beginn foi*
of tue yea? ISSI. Of oy-u-rs?, ii-at is
arloj'g.. lo::g orne ago; and of coursed
th? editor aboU'.s win,m wo arc now lei!- :
inti has long since died and gone to !
hoavt:n. But perdiaps some am-org:
our oldest readers may' have h ear? i j
the i- grandfathers speak . ! the vd* tirer :
of Le'SO uno ISSI. Hov. ii snowed :
- and btowcu a::d frozed, and then took !
j a f. oh start and frozed and blowed ;
j and suowedi How boats were frozen j
ap iti the rivers'-, and railroad trains j
blocked in Lite mi Jule of ioresls by in?- j
penetrable banks of snow, and the ;
' c:-Ltie upon a thousand hills compelled j
to -rai straw under the shed,-and yet;
it kept on snowing and blowing and .
freezing. There lived about tins thnc i
a weather prophet by name Ycnuor.
Many peuple, including the editor, be?
lieved that Vennor had rn-ti'tin".to; -do-j
wi.ih creating the miserable state o??? '
weather. V? nether Ven nor was re- j
sponsible for tho weather, or whether :
it might have more" properly been ;

j eiiiiatiotsSiOf dciiuite, -Coherent bete ru j
1 genieixy* ' we are not able at this time ?
j to determine. Whatever may hayo ;
; been tho cause of the winier, we wiii
simply state that it was alt ?jost as bat!
as any that had ever occurred within ?
the memory of the oldesf inhabitant. ?
On the morning on which our story j
commences, the enlim was nilling !
moodily in his sanctum. The devil j
was endeavoring to make tv: are burn,
just as a weil int educed devil should;:
But the editor was mcdltu?hig. He
was thinking of the past, ol' the pres?
en}: and of ?lie future. lie had just
??niciied making out a long list of bills, !
and lie was thinking sweetly of ali ;
there blessed subscribers who had :
paid him in a iyancc, and ?-gatnst i
whom ile had no bids. And ko wa- ;
thinking mournfully, regreifnuy, ai-;
most bitterly of those who hadn't < -I
squared up. ' And y-A he was think?
ing hopefully of this i a Uer class, ibr it j
was principally upon them that he ?
depended for hr future rations. lie ;
knew there were lots and lots of good !
n Hows among them, who would not j
itt IJim starve to death while they
could raise one dollar and fifty cents.
The editor had spent all his advance
subscriptions keeping up his rent, in
buying his dried apples, his turnips
and his herrings, in paying for tho
material und other cost o? running his
paper and in feeding and clot h inn- his
devil. On this morning .as the editor
sat in nis sanctum, he was completely
bankrupted. That is; he was not,
completely bankrupted,-he had Iii' j
teen cents left. But all his turnips j
were gone, and he only had four ;
pounds ol dried apples and nine her- ?
rings remaining in [?is larder. Tho
editor took his pencil and made a cal?
culation. These four pounds oy apples
ho calculated, when boiled would ;
amount lo just lour bushels. A i low- '
mg bi msc M to eat a peck, these four
bushels would inst him just thirty
two da\*s. But as t ;e?ok him a her?
ring a day, the niue herrings would
only last him nine deys. T: is was a
gloomy outlook. The editor ;/..e . .'!
at his ?'.'?? an ! -a e ("t:;f his !??es .rere
<aviuuing io s.iow, ;..-d as ho ih.mgh;

im ought fo have a :?>::< pair of shoes,
id:ii I. :??;< 4h--r pair of "?' "! '-gs, .

thought upon these th; ?es to r *
grow desperate. Jiejnu ; . ' r-p b tn
hm vivi, ? I "tu ck a thoa?ri'*a! attitude,
shed one eye and shook in's list at tho

Thu devil said. "To the best of

never diverges. It becomes her ehar

changing fashions in color and material
pass without eifccling her. She is
heyer induced to buy anything because
it is new. She is always thc same.
