Fearing a bitter quarrel, perhaps a

the Deacon's refusal was a picco of bis

for tbo thousandth lime, that a wifo has

"Earn money with your sowing ma

Having a motive for getting well,

she is a do icou's wife ?"
Various articles of clothing appeared
from time b time, and wo were develop,

"I earned it by Rowing !"

"That is p'wsiblc; but my mind is

In tho littlotown of Westerly, R. I.,
there has been annually occurring for
sen rid years past a peculiar phenome
non of grout int. rest. The phenomenon
consists 111 the fact that millions of swal
lows nnd other birds nro accustomed
during each summer season to emigre
gate every night in a certain grove in
the town of Westerly, making tho trees
their roosting place, and their move
ments as they come and go about this
resort afford n basis for much comment
aud speculation. When we first reached
the scene we noticed several swallows
Iblling here nud there in tho air, but
about seven o'clock their number seemed
'gioti. One could think of nothing but
stunr storm with large black Hakes.
From tbe plainest outlines of tbe lowest
Hying birds to the merest black specks
of the most aspiring wanderers, the pic

Again, a group of hundreds would tako
a common direction, circling around the
inner circumference of (he general com
pany, now descending toward the tree-
ps with 11 symmetrical swoop, then
rising in tho air till almost 1. st to view.
Then they would return lo the common
crowd and resume t lo ir separate courses
In fore. The individual livers would
tilt an.l joust with each oilier, or play at
cross-tug iu the air. It was a constantly
moving kaleidoscope. All the while
new comers were still streaming in from
all quarters, and at 7:15 o'clock tho
miillituibi bad become dense. About
this time there was h sudden cessation of
the various lligbls, and a general circu
lar motion of the whole company was
apparent. Bound and round in a broad
sweeping circle over tbe grovo they Hew
for several minutes, until all had joined
iu the common direction. Then they
began to draw closer and closer together
111 a constantly inn rowing circle, and llio
ceiilr.i of the mass was observed grad
ually to- sink in funnel shape toward
llio trio tops. Suddenly with almost
the rapidity of thought, the whole host
vanished, circling in the tree lops with a
whirring of wings ilisliuctly heard, aud
soon tho air was almost slill, broken only
by the greeting chirps of tho now late
comers, who were still straggling in m
small groups ami singly. Those bust
arrivals did not pause to circle about in
the air, but How iu toward the glove as

A correspondent of the Chicago Infer

good stories told about thd old meeting
house, of which nothing remains now
but the vane, which some cnthiisiaatio
nntiquarmiis have placed upon "the
ledgo" one of the bills of tho town. It
was tho first church built in Maine. In
thoso days every man carried bia musket
to church with him, and these were
stacked outside tho door, wliilo the sen
tinels kept watch during thosorvico, and
others wero posted at different points)

while the preacher held forth upon the
ruin of unbelievers, and the congrega- .

from tho Prince's Point Station. An-

Advice To a Young Mam
Ton will perceive, my boy, that every
time man undertakes to manufacture a
little Bible 011 bis own neconnt, be uinkcH
a mortifying failure of it. Ho is caught
nt it, nud in one-tenth the time it took
him to conceive his fraud, in ns many
hours ns it took him mouths lo prepare
it, ho is exposed, nnd bis band mnde ad
dition to the Bible is swept away in tho
other rubbish of other counterfeiters.
You see, my son, tha Bible dxsn't neod
any of those 19th century proofs ot its
truth; it needs tbo word of no man to
establish its genuineness; it has stood by
itself, "nn nnvil that Las worn out many
hammers" through century after cen
tury, unchanged and unchangeable.
Evey time a man manufactures a new
verso or n new chapter, wo know it is
not genuine, wo detect tho counterfeit.
Tbo Bible has no need of the suport
iug prop of a fraudulent ark or a leather
Deuteronomy. There was a complete
Bible centuries before Khapira hap
pened nnd there will bo the same Bible
ages after Kbapirn and bis patent Deu
teronomy havo together crumbled
into indistinguishable dust. The
Bible doesn't need our help, our testi
mony, our indorsement. And if there
had never been discovered in all tho
world, a bit of parchment, a piece of
lottery or a scratched stone tbo Biblu
would bo Just as strong as it is to-day,
and men would believe just ns firmly
nnd trustfully in its truth. Don't you
worry, my boy, because Shapiro's an
cient manuscript was written with Lon
don ink, and don't fret because tho ark
in the glacier turns out to be put to
gether with Pittsburg nails. That all
the frauds on tho Hiblo and its history
nro so quickly aud easily detected,
should only convince yon how imixmsi
bio it is for man to counterfeit the work
of God. Wait until somo man fools us (
with nn artificial moon; and until gome
philosopher stores away tho sunlight in
parlor lamps, before yon believe that
man cm successfully iiuitato what man
never made. Bumettsv

There was a young man of Sing Sing,
says tho New York 2Vfi;in, but per
haps it will bo Is'sl to make a plain prose
statement of this matter, though, the line
runs to metro, in writing of t nnnnco nnd
war. Ho was jealous of his wife, from
whom ho hod been separated after two
days of married life, and when bo asked
her why a oertiwi young man came to
see her so often, ho found himself sud

revenge, no did not shoot her or him, '
