We dip the following rich yarn from th local columns of the Buffalo Republic It par takes (lightly of the Silver Lake seu strpen smell: At the boarding house where Dave and hi friends " put up, ' are a number of serva? girls, and it is an idiosyneracy of servant glrli to take their share of toilet articles, such ai hair oils, perfumes, Ac , while they are reju venating the apartments of the boaders. D*v< and his friend Robert were very careful o their respective toilets, and being in a court ing way, had been paying extra attention t< personal adornment, for a long time. The] were in the habit of getting a pint of hair oi made up at the druggist, at ouo time; anc finally they were in the habit of finding the1 a pint of their costly hair oil wouldn't last i week, and that all the servant girls in th< bouse emitted the same perfume they did. it was not long before they came to a conclusior in the matter. So one evening, finding thai the hair oil oruise was empty, they took th< bottle which had contained itfand straight' way went to Mathews' drug store There wai a whispered conversation with a laughin; clerk, a mixing of various articles in a pini bottle, and the following wns marked on th< inscription book as the contents : f Lac' Asafrrdita (milk of asafmtida, which, fcr the information of ourread era we will state, is a highly concet trated extract of that delicious drug ) of this 1 ounce, Of Liquor Potasse?a fluid slightly cele brated for its corroeive power, having the property of taking the hair off a dog in ten feconds i ounce Balsam of Fir?the stickiest and gum miest articles known. 1 ounce Honey ounce Ale.hoi, ? to make these ingredients fluid i pint Tbis was well ?* shuck '* and deposited in the Q8U&1 place occupied by the hair oil The next morning, (Sunday,M>av? and Bob dreee ed themselves tor ohurch, and after finishing travelled down stairs. But they came up ano ther stairway in a few seconds, and secreted themselves in a room adjoining theirs, where, from a couple of panes of glass over the door, they could see everything that went on Af ter the people of the house had gone, two or three servant girls came into Davie's room '? Whiffet, Molly," says a large, red headed one. "Misthur Dave has some more of the ile, and me hair's as dhry as powdher; let's have a reglar fix up wid de folks all away !" This was acceded to, and they all went to oiling their locks, being very lavish with the fluid, which was quite thin in consequence of the alcohol In a few momenta red head says : ** Wirra, that shmells so!" with her nose turned skyward. 44 Sure, its the parfume," interrupted a short and dampy specimen, with her hair down her back ?' Parfume, indade," says red head, " that'a not parfume that s the real bad sbmell " 'Mebbe," says dumpy, ?* it s the Patch chew Ice. I've ba ard that Patch-chew-lee shmells dreadfil at fast, ? pershon ma?t git used to the ehmell before tbey likes it Shure it's a parfume used by the quality Ttrts satisfied red head, and after a thorough l% iling" they left the room In about two hours ihe boarders catno home from church? '?Good gracious, what is it?" "Bless my soul, Mr. tt , I shall faint; oh ! my dear there must be an unclean animal in the room!" and a thousand other expressions were heard as the boarders got a sniff at the "Patch chew-lee" when tney entered the house. The master and mistress of the house were pui zled, confounded, indignant, and in vain en deavored to discover the locality of the " smell." At dinner time there were not half a doien boarders at the table, and those that wore there were rapidly thinking of backing out, as the thiee girls who were "iling" were attending on them. Finally dinner was given up, and with doors and win dows opened, the inmates alternately fixie and suffocated. Tho day was a dire one to them, but it wore away some way. At night the three girls attempted to comb their hair. The alcohol had evaporated, leaving tho balsam of fir and honey, and they might as well have attempted to comb a bundle cf shingles At the very first dath that red head made her comb caught, at d through the influence of the potasete at the roots, the whole mass of front hair cam* off the side of the red head's cranium, which she discovered with a yell that would have rend ered a cannibal envious. The same result at tended the rest if her hair, with the excep tion of enough to do up as a scalp lock to or nament with feathers The two other girls met the same fate, and at about ten o'clock t at night they might have boen seen wrap ping up their lost '? Patch chew-Iced" locks in pieces of paper. The next morning they were informed by the mistress that she did not de sire to employ bald-headed servant girls, and with thtir "chist" they departed in almost a scalped condition The discovery of Dave and Bob's connection with the transection was not known tili lately, but their toilet articles have been ag sacred from touch as the tomb at Palestine Moral?When boarding, see that the ser vant girls are attended to in the way of filet articles. Narrow Escape of a whole Class or Yodsq Docroas?Doctor Tyng in the Col l,ge of Physicians and Surgeons.?The vale dictory lecture before the graduating class of the venerable College of Physicians and Sur geons. delivered by Dr. Delafield, was re markably short, but the reason why has not yet boen published. The faculty bad invited Rev Dr Stephen H. Tyng to deliver the ad dress, with the hope, probably, of getting from the fresh mind of a new man, for such audiences, some suggestions that the old stagers would not be up to; just as painters, after they have exhausted the criticisms of connois seurs on their sketches of brute nature, ask end expect to get valuable hints from old far mers who know nature like a book, though they don't keow the philosophy of colors nor the rules of art It was understood that Dr. Tyng would deliver the address, and it wss about to be publicly announced, when the candidates for graduation called a meeting, and in much indignation began to resolve sub stantially as follows: 1 That the Kev Dr. Tyng is a homoepath, not quietly and modestly, but be goes out of iho way to tempt people to employ the little pill doctors 2 If so, he can t congratulate us as he should upon our graduation, except ironically or hypocritically. 3 If the Faculty can't tender us their con gratulations; if they are obliged to ask stran gers to do the little politenesses for them, we would rather go off unoongratulated with our diplomas While these proceedings were on foot, luck ily Dr. Watts?who, with Dr. Oilman, was the author of the innocent outrage?oame into the meeting, shouldered the whole blame, apologiisd, gave assurance that Dr Tyng a medical heresies were unknown to the Fiacui ty, and premise! speedy reparation. By hu great popularity the Profeasor prevailed, and the storm subsided. It was made right with the olergyman, and at the eleventh hour Dr. Delafield prepared a brief and otbodox ad^ dress.

A Thrilliso Stort ?The New York Com mercial Advertiser tells the following thriBing Last fall, a woman residing in the vicinity of Worcester was picking blackberries in a field ne&r the houee, having with her her only child, a bright-eyed little fellow of lesa than a year o'd. The babe sat upon the ground amusing itself with grasping at clumpaof yel low weed that grew within reach, and eating berries brought him from time to time by hia mother The latter at length, intent upon gathering the fine fruit, paseed around a rock which hia her child from view. She was about to return to htm, when, hearing him laughing and crow ing in great glee, and thinking he must be aafe as long as he was so happy, she remained a little longer where she was. Suddenly the little voi-se eeaaed, and after a moment's delay the young mother stepped upon the rock and looked over, expecting to see her babe asleep; instead of which, he wts sitting perfectly motionlesa, hia lipa parted, and his wide open eyes fired with a singular expression upon some object which at firat she was unable to discern But who can judge of her horror when, on closer scrutiny, she perceived, eome four or five feet from her infant, a rattlesnake, with her glittering eyes fastened upon his, and nearing him by an almoat imperceptible mo tion Ihe eight of her darling's peril ao nearly p&ralized her, that for an instant she half be lieved the dreadful fascination had extended to herself; but the certainty that, unlee* she was the instrument of salvation to her child, he was inevitably lost, in somo decree restored her power She glanced wildly round for something that might be used as a weapon, but nothing appeared, and already the venomous reptile had passed over half the space which divided him and his victim Another moment and all would be lost. What could be done ? in her hand she held a broad tin pan, and, springing from the rock, quick as thought she covered the pnake with it, and stook upon it to prevent its escape. The charm was broken?the child moved, swayed to one side, and begsn to acb At the same time the mother recovered her voice and streamed for aid, retained h.*r position until it Arrived, when the cause ef her terrible fright was deapatched. tsr a Bible distributor in Kentucky re ports that of 30 000 families he vUited, one* fourth had no Bible, and many had never heard of such a book at all!
