HOW JIM BLASDBR SALTEO AND PICKLED THE QUAKER FRIEND a stout run ors own times. Thare lived in aertain neighborhood not far diatant from here, a roystering. rowdy bully, Jim Blander. Jim ?u "mm" in a fight, * kind of pagiliatio Napoleon. Many and blovdy were the affairs he had had in his lifetime, and had inTariably come ofl best. Jim ot only eonaidered himself invulnerable, but all the fighting characters in the surrounding country oonceded it was no ase in fighting Jim, a be was cons!dared to be a patent thrashing machine, that eoald not be improved on. 'in Jim's neighborhood had settled quite a number of Quakers. From some cause or other. Jim hated the " shad-bellies,"' as he called them, with hi* entire heart; he often declared that to whip one of these inoffensive people would be the crowning glory of hia life. For yeara Jim waited for a pretext. One of Jim'a ehuma overheard a young Quaker speak in disparaging terms of him. The report* soon came to Jim's ears, not a little magnified. Jim mad?desperate threat* what he washing to do with Nathan, the meek follower of Penn, on sight; besides various bruises and contuaiens he meant to inflict on Nathan's body, in hia chaste language, he meant to " gouge out" both bis eyes and ''chaw off" both his ears. Nathan heard of Jim's threats, and very properly kept out of hia way, hoping that time would modify Jim's anger. It seeins, however, this mach-to-be-desired result did not take place One day friend Nathan was out riding, and in passing through a long lane, when about midway, he espied Jim entering the other end. Nathan might have turned and fled, but his flesh rebelled at this proceeding. " 1 will pursue my way peaceably," said the Quaker, 44 and I hope the better sense of the man of wrfttK will nrtt n?fmit Kim in mrtlMf ma ap ). low him to do violence to my person." Nathaa's calculations u to the lamb like qualities of kia adversary were doomed to be disappointed. ' 0. oh." thought bully, as he recognised $athaa. *' I hare him at last Now I'll make mincemeat of shad-belly. I will salt him and piakle him, too." "Wilt thou please dismount from thy horse?" aid Jim, seising the bridle of Nathan's horse and mimicking Sis style; " my soul yearneth above all things to give thee the biggest mauling ever man received." "Friend James," replied Nathan, "thou must not molest me, but let me go on my way in peace. Thy better judgment will surely tell thee that thou cannot possibly be benefited by personally injurifig me." "Get down in a moment," thundered Jim; " get down, you canting, lying, mischief making oowardly hypocrite. I'll drag you down if you don't dismount." "Friend James, I remonstrate against thy proceedings and against thy language," replied Nathan. My religion teaches me sincerity; I AM* MAilKa* A It** m mi a.tUt A/ ? U1 uvi?uvt ? list, a Uiiovuiui-ujanor, UUT ft hypocrite; I am no coward, but a man of peace; I desire to pursue my way quietly?let mepasaon." "Get down," persisted Jim; "down with you; I want to beat tome of your religion out of yon; I must give you a flogging before I leave you. I think by the time I'm through with you, vou'll pass for a tolerably deoent man; I'll leach you a short and easy lesson on the importance of minding yoar own affairs, and the riak you ran in alanderiog yoar neighbar*-" " Twill not dismount." said Nathan, firmly; ?' loesen thy hold from the bridle." "You woo't, won't yoo7" said Jim; "then here goes," and he made a desperate plung? to collar the Quaker. Nathan was on his feet in an instant, on the opposite side of the horse. The Quaker, although of much smaller proportions that his persecutor, was all sinew and muscle, and his well-knit form denoted both activity and strength, liis wrath was evidently kindled " Friend J^mes," he implored, "thy pertinaeions persistence in persecuting me is annoyin*: thou muat ditaiat nr T m?w ao?ar forget myself u to do thee tume bodily h&r m '' ' By snakes!" said Jim. ooming toward Nathan, "I believe there is fight enough in broadbrim to make the affair interesting. I wish loaeuf the boys were here to see the fun. Now, friend Nathan. I am going to knock off the end of your nose; lookout! Suiting the action to the word, Jim, after various pugilistic gyrations with his fiita, made a scientific blow at the nasal formation of our Quaker friend; but Tom Hyer couldn't more scientifically have warded it off. Jim was evidently disconcerted at the ill suocess of his first attempt; he saw he had undertaken quite as much as he was likely to accomplish. Jim, however, straightened himself oat, and approached Nathan more oautiously. The contest began again. Nathan stood his ground firmly, and warded off the shower of blow* skilfully, which Jim aimed at him. " Friend Jamea," said Nathan, in the heat of the conteft, "this ia mere child's play. It grievM me that thou bast forced me into reaiat aace, but x mast defend myself from bodily harm- I see there is but one w*j of bringing this soandaloas and wicked affair to a close, tad that U by conquering thee; in order to do thia, I will inflict a heavy blow between thine eyes, which will prostrate thee." Following oat the suggestion, Nathan struck Jim a tremendous blow on his forehead, which brought him senseless to the ground " Now," said Nathan, " I will teach thee a leston, and I hope it will be a wholesome lesson. too. I will seat myself astride of thy breast; I will piece my kneea upon thy arms, thus, so that thou cannot injure me when thou raturnest to consciousness I hope I may be the humble instrument of taming thy fierce, warlike nature, and make a better and more respectable man of thee." the Quaker ooncluded, Jim began to show ifns of returning life. The first impulse of Jim, when he fairly saw his condition, was to tarn Nathan off. He struggled desperately, b?t he was in a vioe? his effort was unarailiug mena, taou must knp (till until I am done with thee," Mid Nathan. " I b?Li?ve I an an humble instrument ia the band* of God to chastise thee, and I trait when I am done with thee thon wilt be a changed man , Friend James, doea thee not repent of attacking ma?" "No," ?aid Jtmec; ' let meap, and I'll show yo?." M will not let thee up. impious wretch," replied Nathan; "dareat tnou profane the name of thy Maker? I will poaiah thee for that?I will cheek thy respiration for a moment." Nathan, u good u his word, elutohed him by the throat. He compraased hia grip, aa a gargling aoand could b? heard; Jim a fa^e became distorted; a tremor ran through his frame. He wh evidently undergoing a proeeea of atraagulation. The Quaker relaxed his hold, but not until the choking process had uAoieutly, as he thought, tamed the perverM spirit of Jim. It took some moments for Jim to inhale lir tr> ulrfrMi ?K? "I will knock under,'' Mid Jim; "enough; 1*4 me up." " No, thou but not got half enough," replied Nathan " Thoa art now undergoing a process of moral purification, and thou must be oontented to remain whore thoa Irest until I am doao with thee. Thoa iaet profaned the name of thj Maker, friend Jimei," continued Nathan, -'confess, dost thou repent thj wickedno*?" 41 No, hanged if I do," growled Jim. 44 Thoa perreree man," replied Nathan, In an imploring tone, "say that thou repentejt , of thj wickedness." " 1*11 ho kaagod if I do," growled Jim. . * Wilt thoa not," replied the Quaker, "mult I ase eompalsorj moans ?

Jim was slow in recovering his speech and his senses; when he did he begged Nathan ' for mercy's sake to release him. " When thee will make the promise I exact 4 W from thee, I will release thee, but no sooner," replied Nathan. 5. 2 Jim saw he was powerless, and that the Quaker was resolute, lie felt it was no use to persist in his stubbornness. 7. j " I will give in." he replied, "I will promise to love my neighbor as myself." 8* J "Including the Quakers?" insinuated Nathan 9. 1 " Yes, including the Quakers." replied Jim. )p 5 ' Thou mayest arise then, friend James," answered Nathan, '-and I trust the le?son thou 11. fi hast learned to-day will make a more peacea- ]0 . ble citizen of thee, and I hope a better man " ~ 0 Poor Jim was completely humbled ; he left 13 lfl the field with his spirit* completely cowed. . 5 Not long after this occurrence the story became bruited about. This was more than Jim could bear. He soon after left the scene of his many ,5- ? triumphs and his late defeat, and emigrated to the''far west." The last I heard of him he IB. s was preparing to make another move. Bain a _ - ? *9 l*y q Eressed for bis reuon why b? again emigrated, ' 0 said a colony of Quakers were aboat moving K& into his neighborhood.

SC Strange, passing strange, and wonderful will be found the facta in this article. In Boston there is a very learned Qertnan, D. F. Weinland, Ph. D. (Doctor of Philosophy,) ? . who is devoting his life to the Btudy of tapeworms. During the last ten years he has dissected more than 5.000 animals in search of these singular parasites, and the facts which s* he and bis collaborators in this field of investigation have ascertained are exceedingly curious b?M Tapeworms are found in all classes of verte- the i brated animals, fishes as well as land animals, They different species of animals generally having different species of tapeworms; that of the aecici horse differing from that of the ass; that of the sheep from that of the goat; and that of the rat from that of the mouse. The common human tapeworm lives and 2. 1 grows in the bowels. Its head is nrovided with four suckers with a cluster of little hooks, 3 5" by meaaa of which it attaches itself to the in- 4 3 testine, the body floating two or three yards For down, and absorbing the nourishing juices either through small openings or through the Wlth skin The body consists of several hundred Uep< rings or soctions which grow out of the head, so that those nearest the head are the young- 0 ' est, and the eldest are at the end of the tail. ,te"* The creature is an hermaphrodite; and as the 1. SO jointa mature^ the sexual organs are developed, the male and female both in the tame joint. The joints then break off, each one is a 3 30 complete living animal, preserving its existence frequently for a considerable time, and 0n< laying numbers of eggs after it is broken off mitt? The eggs pass out by facet, and never hateh unless they enter tbe stomach of a bog. But if "m' the joints are eaten by a bog, or if the eggs fiad their way into the water that is drunk by 2. 1 swine, the eggs hatch in the hog's steinaoh, 3.

F?. It has long been known that measly pork was ?ich< was oaused by this little bladder-tailed animal, kam but it is only within a few years that the curious fact has been ascertained that this animal is the larva of the common human tape- 1* 3 worm. It is now proved by careful observation j, 5 that if one of these aninais is taken into the human stomach, the bladder-like tail is di- . rested, while the living head and neck pate ? down into the intestines, where they hook on, and the rings begins rapidly to grow out into & the well-known tapeworm. w Other species of tapeworms, living in other animals, nave a natural history similar to that ? V! or tbe ham an tapeworm. They all live in the |; intestine# of vertebrated animal* (animals with 10! backbones). and ea?h species mast be hatched in the stomach of soma animal different from ^ that in which it is developed. For instance, one of the tapeworms of the dog ia hatched in IS. s the stomach of a hare, and another in that of )4 i aa ox; and the tapeworm of a eat is hatched in u. the stomach* of rau and mice. 2t About 200 apeciea of tapeworms have been JJ' j described, fire of them being found in man. 19. 5 Tnere are only two, however, that are at all *>. ? common. One of these is a narrow worm with : hooks on its head, found particnlarly in the p? Teutonio nations, (German, English, and ni?m Americans,) and the broad tapeworm without t*?*' hooks which seems to live almost solely in the e J[ej Swiss and in the Sclavonic nations. The for- mar and more common of these two species has \V a head about the siae of a pin's head, and the lares body gradually widens to about a quarter of an inch, sometimes reaching a length of 2i [?^ar feet. Tapeworms have been found in sheep 100 Ah feet long. pno? It ii doubted bv soma I *" tapeworms are injurious to health, though it UM seams probable that thej are.
