BOOKS STATI01M In 1453 a prophet wrote these prophetic lines : "In twice two hundred years the bear The crescent shall asaftil, But if the cock and bull unite, 1 The bear shall not prevail. But look in twice un years again, Let Islam know and fear, The cross tiiall wax the crescent wane, Grow pale and disappear." The Grand Lodge of Odd Fellows at Nashville elected for the ensuing year Chae. M. Carroll, of Memphis, Grand Master, and J. A. Greer, of Maryville, Grand Warden. All other officers were Nashville men except one or two. Knoxvillt ( hronicle. There is to he a Southern Educa tional Convention in Atlanta on the 7th of November, for the purpose of considering the difficulties of the edu cational situation, and of devising the moft effective means of surmounting them, and establishing in every Southern State a wise and efficient system of public education. This season T. A. Henderson, of Monroe couuty, in this State, raised one hundred and fiftyfivo bushels of corn on one acre of ground. As this is the most corn we have ever known raised upon thit quantity of ground, we hope Mr. Henderson will -let the public know how it was done. Cleveland Banner. The venerable Dr. John Poissal, chaplain of the House of Represent atives.'who h&3 passed fifty years in the ministry of the Methodist church, was formerly a shoemaker at Mar tinsbnrge, West Virginia, and stud ied theology while sticking to his last. To be forgotten as soon as dead is the melnncholy lot of man every where, but it is only n the., iwtp populous places of th world that this forgetfulness anticipates the twcfold objivion of the grave, and that men are considered dead because they cease to be remembered. There is a society in New York styled the "Fat Men's Association, the condition of membership being the possession of a body of not less than 200 pound s weight. This society wa formed in 18G9, and has grown to the number of 300 individ nals. They have an annual clam bake, which was recently held at South Norwalk. There were baked f&r the visitors 110 bushels of clams and oysters, 300 chickens wrapped in cloths and laid above the clame. 400 lobstprs, GOO pounds of blue' fish wrapped in cloths, three barrels of sweet potatoes and two barrels of white potatoes, and. to top all, 1000 ears of green coi n in the husks. The victor who bore off the palm as the heaviest person was a young man of twenty-three, who weighed 399 pounds. Perhaps after the dinner he might have tipped the scales at 400. ' ' . , , Raising Articles for Hogs. Select a field that you do not in tend to use for any other purpose, for, when once planted it is difficult to get artichokes out of the land. It will produce plants from seed left in the ground. If; it were turned to pasture of course . the plants would soon die out ; but it is better to fence off a portion, plow it up and plant it iu artichokes, and every fall let the hogs into the artichok lot to feast upon the tubers. Late in the spring plow and barrow the lot, keep the hogs out till fall and there will be a crop of artichokes again to feed the hogs the following winter. If before frost the stalks are cut, cured and stacked up, they will furnish ex cellent forage for horses, cattle and sheep. They can be dug like pota toes and fed to hogs cooked, which is an improvement. Plant in rows three feet apart, and fifteen inches apart in the row, and run a cultiva tor between the rows a few times in the spring to destroy the weeds. The more tender and delicate the blossoms of joy, the purer must be the hand that culls them. The only praifeworthy indifference is an acquired one ; wo must feel as well an control our passions. ' . A ol Wife. The good wife is none of your dainty dames who loves to appear in a variety of suits, every day new ; as if a gown, like a stratagem in war, were to be used but once. But our good wife sets np a sail, according to the keel of her husband's estate, and if of high patronage, she doth not so remember what she was by birth, that she forgets what she is by match. Who la a Gentleman ? A gentleman is a person not mere ly acquainted with certain forms and etiquette of life, easily and self-possessed in society, able to speak and act and move in the world without awkwardness, and free from habits which are vulgar and in bad taste. A gentleman ia' something beyond this ; that which lies at the root of eveYy Christian virtue. It is the thoughtful desire of doing in every instance what others should do unto him. He is constantly tliinking, not indeed how he may give pleasure to others for the mere sense of pleusing, but how he may avoid hurting their feelings. When he is in society he scrupulously ascertains the positiou and relations of every one with whom he comes in contact that he tuny give to each his due honor, his proper position. He studies how he mny avoid touching in conversation on any subject which may needlessly hurt their feelings how he may ab stain from illusions which may call up a disagreeable or offensive associ ation. A gentleman never alludes to, never even appears conscious of any defect, bodily deforraily, -inferiority of talent, of rank,- of reputa tiontin the person in whoso society he is placed. He never assumes any superiority to himself never ridi cules, never sneers, never boasts, never ; icukcs n . diep'y ot us own power, or rank, or advantages such as is implied in habits or trick,") or inclinations which may be offensive to otheis. , Good Manners Illustrated, j ' Much jewelry is vulgar. Do not smack while eating. Do not run after famous people. Do not cut your nails in company. Cheese should be eaten with a fork. FeeiDg waiters is paying black mail. Unsweetened coffee cures bad breath. Short nails make the finger tips grow broad. In going up or down stairs pre cede the lady. A formal call is very long if it last half an hour. Only a haughty brunette should wear yellow colors. It is impolite to keep a muscian constantly playing. Address your wife as "llrs.," your husband as "Mr." - - A girl should not stroll away with a gentleman at a picnic. A Lady ihould not stretch her. foot out in company. Let the wife deal with the female servants. A pink ribbon nuder the chin makes a pale woman look brighter No man respects a girl who flirts, though he may flirt with her. The' lady of the house should re ceive the guests at a formal recep tion. Always take the last piece of any thing. There is supposed to be more. ( An engagement of marriage ia little less sacred than an actual mar' riage. If it is necessary for yon to ubo your handkerchief sonorously, leave the room quietly. If you meet a gentleman friend with, a strange lady on his arm, sa lute both, ' A' well-bred English or French girl will not go to a theatre or con cert alone with any other gentleman than a near relative or her accepted suitor. One of the lady clerks in the In terior Department being incorrectly told that she must pronounen "Schurz" like "shirtB," replied : "If be is 'shirts' we clerks are 'under shirts" Ugh ! Hugh Gough, of Borou7ibridge, was a rough soldier on a fir)ough, but a man of doughty deeds in war, though before bo fought for this country, he was a thorof,7t dough faced ploMtfiman.- His horse hav ing been hoied in an engage ment with the enemy, Hugh was taken prisoner, and, I ought to add, was kept on a short enough dough of food, and suffered from drought as well as from hunger. Having, on his return home, drunk too large ft dra?7t of usqueba7, be became intoxicated, and was hughing, coughing and hiccoM7ung by a irough, against wliich lie Bought to steady himself. There he was ac cused by another rough, who show ed him a cough, which he had caught on a clough near ; also the slough of a snake which he held at the end of a to?i bough of eugh tree, and which his shagy Bhough had found and hud brought to him from the entrance of a Bough which ran through and drained a hlough that was close to a lough in the neighborhood. Wonder. "When a young man is a clerk in a store and dresses like a princes smok ing fiue cigars, and drinks nice brans dy, attends theatres, balls, and the like, I wonder if he does it all upon the avails of his clerkship? When a young lady sits in the parlor all day, with her fingers cov ered with rings, I wonder if her mother don't wash and do the work in the kitchen ? When the deacon of a church sells strong butter, recommending it as sweet, I wonder if he don't rely on the merits of Christ for salvation ? When a lady laces her waist a third smaller than nature made it, I won- ilui li.LCr pretty figure-. 3 in not shorten life some dozen years or more, besides making her miserable while she does live ? When a young man is depending upon his daily toil for his income, and marries a lady who does not know how to make a loaf of bread or mend a garment, I wonder if he is not lacking, t'omewhere, say towards the top for instance? When a man goes three times a day to get a dram, I wonder if he will not by and by go four times? When a man receives a periodical or newspaper, weekly, and takes great, delight in' reading them, but neglects to pay for them, I wonder if he has a soul or a gizzard 1Ex. Words of Wisdom. Everything great is not always good, but all good things are great. The best government is that which teaches self-government. . The felicities of mankind are strengthened by the counsels 1 of the good. . ....... . The best judges of pleasure are the best judges of virtue. . Calamity is often a whip to virtue and a spur to a great mind. Many consider as truth what is merely' error sanctified by age. Common sense is very noticeable only when it is not eclipsed by un common sense. He is certainly very shrewd who has prospered without obtaining a reputation for shrewdness. A fool has many disadvantages he cannot indulge in the luxury of mskiDg a fool of himself. If what ban been done is not al ways rewarded, what has been left undone is seldom recognized. Wit is educated humor, chastis ing intentionally. Humor, ingenu ous wit, reproving unwittingly. Thoughts are digested impress ions, and are vigorous 'or feeble, ac cording to the condition of the men tal stomach. Plenty a?d indigence depend upon the opinion every one has of them 5 end riches, no moro than glory or health, have no more beauty or pleasure than their possessor is pleased to lend them. Honors soften fatigue. It is eas ier riding in a gilded and embossed naddler. Atlas, while he sustains the woald upon his Bhoulders, is himself sustained by tho admiration which his feat excites. A Wrong ftjmlem. It is no sign of gentility to be uU terly indifftrent to expenses. Many people think it quite "the correct' thing" to know nothing of the prices of common articles. Such ignorance is supposed to suggest the idea of vast wealth. But the facts are, that it suggests quite 0 different train of. ideas. The truly refined and high bred, with abundant resources at command, know tl at it advertises a great ignorance of the world, a very limited education, and oven less com ruou sense. This sort of display goes handiin-hand with vulgarity, and stamps its possessor in a way : that is "known and read of all men. People possessed of wealth, which is not founded upon "shifting sand," are usually most exact and sys tematic in all their money affairs. Ladies of wealth and good breeding see well to the ways of their house holds, and are strict in their domes-" tic management, that no waste shall be allowed. As a rule, the poor are more wa&teful than the rich one rea son why they remain poor. When a young couple, with their way to mako in tho world, begiu housekeeping in a style that is only suitable in people of established wealth, they do not command the respect they wish, in places whera their reputation is account to 'them, where confidence is of the greatest Business men,, a young mau's best capital, will not. trust him half as readily as if he had "begun small." If there is anything that makes home uucomfortable, it is the con tinued consciousness that ono is livi ing beyond one's means, and . that a day of reckoning is sure to come. Yet the calls for expenditure are in cessant, and each keeps on buying, with no calculation how matters are coming out, until the final crash set tles the matter for them. If you wish to get true comfort out of your income, and command tho respect of those about you, learn to keep your accounts accurately, and spend your money with discretion. Cramming. It appears that Boston is not the only place where schoolgirls are tax ed beyond their mental strength, for a correspondent remarks: "I know a little girl of fourteen who attend the North London College an educa tional resort which seems to be per vaded by tho principles of Dr. Blink er, Here are a few of the things my little friend had to prepare for the next day, after a long morning's work at school : To learn a certain number of Latin verses ; translate so much Virgil ; write out a Latin exercise ; work out a page of alge bra; a problem in geometry; do several 6ums, among which was to find out "What fraction of a sover eign is 4 14-21-10 44-55x9 3-45-52-117 of a penny ;" lastly, to pracs tice a piece on the piano, The wise, in such matters, must know best; but really 1 would rather that a girl of mine could reckon up the house keeping accounts, than perform bril liantly these composite tasks. By tbe-way, it must be useful to know what that part of a sovereign is. I draw the liue at coppers. Saddle Galls. Galls should be washed with cas tile soap and warm water, and then with a solution of six grains of cop peras to ono tabl9spoonful of water. This will harden the surface, and help to restore the growth of the skin. White hoirs growing upon the healed spots cannot be prevented. If the saddlo is lined with a hard linished, smooth, raw hide, and pro perly fitted to tho horse's back, there should bo . no galls. Flannel or woolen cloth used r.s a lining is bad. Modost men conceal their 'joys as well as their sorrows, for they consider tho ono as undeserved : an the other. TV1, ia n lianrlnnmA rrlrl lita ft , , It J cf i. muuiiuv CI mirror ?
