ITlakiiig Fun. Once, when traveling in a stage coach, I met a young lady who seemed to be on the constant lookout for something laughable and not content with laughing herself, took great pains to make others do the same.— Now, traveling in a stage coach is rather pro zy business. People in this situation are apt to show themselves peevish and selfish so the young lady's good humor was, for a time, very agreeable to the travelers.— Every old barn was made the subject of a pa-sing joke, while the cows and hens look- not likely to have their feelings injured be cause people make fun of them but when we cotne to human beings, that is quite The good natured coachman drew up his horses, and the good old lady, coming to the fence by the roadside, squeezed herself through two bars, which were not only in a horizontal position, but very near together.

It seemed very excusable for in taking "a seat beside a well dressed lady really looked as if she had been new piece of frni, and the girl made the most of it.

The result of one trial gave sixteen and one-half pounds of fifty six pounds of meal fed out. In an other instance, seventeen and nearly one jlialf pounds were the gain from a bushel.— ^The breed of hogs experimented upon were the 'Chester" (county, Pa.) while, which we regard as aminj the best breeds now in the country. We have recently seen accounts of several other experiments of feeding hogs in the same way, with similar results, while the same breed of hogs fed in the ordinary way, upon dry corn, in the ear, gave a re turn of but about one third of the weight, compared with tho^c fe on the cookc 1 meal.

Dipthcrla. An old physician, writing to the Alexan dria Gazette from Mason county, Va., says: This section of our State has been remarka bly healthy, until quite lately, when it has been visited by a disease deemed by many to be a new one but this is altogether a fal lacy. I allude to a malady ealled diptheria, and by the French diptherite.

And, in plain English, it is noth- of ,, i ing more nor less tnan the putrid sore throat wards of fifty six years—a period in which I have been engaged in the study and prac tice of medicine. In a communication like the present, I can only drop a few remarks respecting the treat ment of this terrible disease, which has al ready proved so fatal in several instances in this and other neighboring counties, as well as on the Ohio side of the river.
