The more green there Is in an India, and the lighter it is, say those who profess to know, the more valuable is the 'article. A Bengal editor, in criticising the income tax, slightly mixes metaphor. He expresses the hope that "the Government will not re peat the blunder of killing the calf which dai ly produces the golden egg." A curious discipline is enforced at revival meetings, where the reverend preachers noti fy to the speakers in the beginning, "If any man attempts to make a long speech' he will be sung down on the spot." The Boston Traeelltr has for years con tended that it is the duty of the Common wealth to provide an insane asylum tor the insane persons of Boston. It would certainly be far better than to let them roam about the country lecturing. Robert Collyer fcund his match in a coun try girl, who would not stop knitting during his lecture. Robert is a great advocate of woman's rights, but don't like to have any one at work in the lecture room while he is speaking. An Athol man recently had a severe fit of illness, during which he experienced religion. One day during convalescence the minister called and prayed, toliowed by the sick man, who then said to the clergyman : "I am not much used to praying, and I don't know as that prayer was exactly grammatical. The local editor en a Wilmington (N. C.) paper went away, and his substitute almost went mad trying to hunt up news. He was happy at last, when this suggested itself to him: "Just nineteen hundred and seventeen years to-day since Brutus gave his friend Julius Caesar a poke under the fifth lib with a dirk." A bright little boy hearing his father say that a man ought to "stick to his business," emptied a bottle of mucilage in the old gen tleman's office chair. The old man says he has not been stuck so badly since 1857, and rewarded his offspring by taking him on a whaling trip to the back cellar. A lady asked a gentleman who had traveled a little in the Yellowstone country whether he really considered it equal in scenery and gener al features to Switzerland, and whether they had "goitres" there. He replied that the very day before he left he saw a large flock of goitres come tearing down a precipice, two of which he brought to bag with bis rifle.

Miss Braddon is detected in an amusing lapeua in her last novel. The heroine tell· her lover, in an early chapter of the book, that she has never been to London and In a later chapter she tells another party of her visit to that city in her childhood with her fa ther, and what she saw there. Heroines doubtless do lie sometimes. An Akron (O.) cat, relying upon hi· nine lives to save him, allowed his tail to swell, his spine to curve, and with the "banner cry of bell" emanating from his jaws, waded into a buzz saw in rapid motion. The cat was nev er seen again, but the boss sawyer, who al ways stood with his mouth open while at work, remarked to his assistant that h· conld "taste fiddle strings and sausage meat in the air that morning." Swete Larke, that from thy low and graaale neste Beneath the hedge, tbieke set with man le a tborue Doat upward file with crjitalle carolling To cheerlie greets the roale day, new born ; Lit at the morning atarre, thy little sprite Clearll· doth borne, with pure excelling llghte.

Cat—Scat 1 BT HENRY WARD BKECHER. The way of a cat with a cat is past finding out, except by those who are interested in making close studies of nature. It is ten o'clock. The house is still. Re turned from some assembly or thronged meet ing, the silence and soothing emptiness of the house are positive qualities, Children there are none. Young folks have fled. The matron plucks oianges in Florida, and the guardian sister has gone :o bed in a severe reverence and devotion to the habit of keen ing early hours which makes Connecticut Yankees so'cute. No sounds in the street. The low runnbling of the care in Fuman street serve only to show yon how st.ll It is. The great city over yonder winks with ten thousandeyet. of gas; and you—what?—go off into visions? No—you feel hungry I ι , ow .*J' Physiologists, physicians, hygién iste, and dyspeptics are agreed that one should not eat just before going to bed. Only that was necessary to make ooe alive to the de lights of a stolen meal. You rummage the closet; you pry into the refrigerator; you wonder where those bird* are—surely all were not eaten upl Or is it a leg of cold mut ton, a fragment of steak, a wreck of a chick en, a morsel of tongue, cold sausage, a sec tion of mince pie, or fraemant of apple plef No, not t >-night. No, none of these. Though cold meat at eleven at night, in a coey dining room, down thr*e pairs of stairs from any body, is not to he spoken lightly of. At noonday dinner oue is formal. He ha» r iiUnÎ proprieties to consider. He is too • i,° to.<:at' 't may be; or he is so cially busy, and is diverted from the busincs» EL r™. ^y carving, serving, jesting, and all the lorrn of en)oynient which covers the gross business of eating with fine bubbles. But, now, late at night, alone, meditative imaginative, one seizes the carcase of a chick en with curious particularity. There I· tin. "wishing bone"—bedded in white meat which shows plainly that no young folks were at dinner when the chicken was carved. The shoulder blades, on being lifted, develope their liues of choice meat ; flue veins of neith er white nor dark meat, but a juicy mixture, ciuericious, moist, rich, which no spoon can scoop or knile carve, honey-like In little cehs, and to be had only as bees get ioney, by suck ing; th:n on the ribs and along the aide bones there are bits of fodder fit for epicuiet ; and these and all other delights you enjoy un watched, without convention or ceremony. Indetd, the full delight of an ancestral feel ing conies over you. You have a sympathy tor bears and lions, that in the thickets Ike down to their food, craunching bone» and sucking out marrow without fear of inter ruption. But, as we were saying, It was not meat that we sought to-night. It shall be a pbil osopher's meal—bread and cheese. Not one man in a thousand knows the taste of bread. A hundred loaves are spo led to one that Is good. Bakers' bread may be put aside at once. It is ruined by excessive rising. Ail sweetness is gone. It is tasteless as sponge, and almost as tough. Salt risings, too much yeast when good, and poor yeast, sourness, heaviness—these all are plagues of bread. But good flour, abundantly kneaded, rai«ed to a nicety, cooked In Rumford s steamer, and then just browned in the oven—this Is the bread that lies before me. Woe to him who smears this delicious corn with winter butter. Good butter there i». It is rarer among butter than genius is among men. It is no kin to oil, and grease it abhorreth. It smells of the clover field. Its aroma is of flowers and grass. Its flavor is of a delicacy and deliciousness that stirs the hardest heart to instant thanksgiving. But why should I open up delights before unknowing men who will pervert ihe mean ing of my words by referring them to thoae stacks an 1 gobs of infamous grease which pollute the markets and defile every one which touches them i> But such butter have I not. Let no man eat butter in winter 1 Wait till birds sing and meadows sprout, and cows calve, and early flowers peep: but not in stormy winters I Eat only bread then ; or if another thing go with it let it be cheese— not white, hard, tasteless stuff ; not rousing red and strong as Samson ; not cheese fall ot blisters and honeycombed with apercula, oigua ui ιυυ uaiu ICUUCtj 11 uc clammy new chcese, sticking to the knife, but cheese come to s ripeness of color between orange and straw; oily, not mc lst, neither strong nor m id, but both—mildness waxing pungent ω you chew, and sharpness subsiding to oily pastiness, without tang or bitterness. But better eat bread by itael£ Surprise yourself by the flavor ot wheat. Eat and wonder why one needs cake, when bread i· so much betterl As you eat, the clock ticka on. It strikes. Dear me ! Twelve ?—twelve, surely I But what about the cat ? Did we not open with the ways of cats ? But it 1· too late. We must take that for another time. Now Tom must go down cellar. Scat! —Ν. T. Ledger. Thk Wat of the Plumber.—The New York correspondent of the St. Louia Repub lican thus gives this uuhappy experience with these trials of modern householder·: I think I must have spent (1600 or (3000 this wii· ter with the plumbers. We have done nothing but thaw out. freeze up and b jst the last four months. The pipes at last were honoraole and above IxLrd. They would all of a sudden begin to sizzle la visible and get-at-able places, and then, when we were somewhat prepared, the grand kitchen Niagara or bedroom Montmorcncy commenc ed. That early stage of integrity has rsnaril away, and with the incoming of the Credit Mobilier bribery and corruption, our water pipes have taken to disreputably bursting in the walls. We hear a faint murmer behind the plaster : presently word comes the water Is coming through the drawing room ceiling— and kthen the trouble commences—cornices dropping, paper-hangings falling, carpets coming up, and pails and tubs coming in. The plumber comes in, and immediately tears off all the plaster on the hasement. When we timidly assure him that il is from the second floor the dampness had come, be says "very likely," and goes directly to work at the drawing room ceiling to make sure be fore be got.s to the top of the house and peels things right straight down to the cellar. This carnage an.i slaughter this time cost $260— we acknowledge the row tn be worth It—but the plumber has to come every few minutes to stop an insignificant leak around the boiler or out under the tubs. He brings a boy and an old carpet bag, with about a hundred Sounds of wrenches and flies and barrel oops packed inside. These are all emptied on the kitchen and dining room floor. The range may be red hot, but it seems no flre is practicable for a plumber, but a nasty little gas-emitting bl ize he gets up with much dif ficulty and swearing in a two quart pot atove, which is carried in band to balance the car pet bag. Then some rosin is fcied till we all smell like singed fiddle bows. Then some lead is boiled till the odor of a battle-field reaches the third story. Then the plumber lights an entire edition of the New York Herald, and puts his head in all the pot clos ets and files spots for future leaks in all hid den places along the pipes. When he comes to the proper place for his surgery, he pro ceeds to cauterize and annoint, and finally comes out all cobwebs, and turns on the wa ter, gathers his tools and towards night ι de parts. Three days thereafter, amid the dis tractions of a shop full of pumps and bars of solder, he makes out a bill—tor three and · half days for a man, $23; for the assistance of boy three an 1 half dtys, $7.60: to eighteen pounds of solder at $11 a pound, $167; to use ot wrench, $4. Ana that's the way ' we stop leaks in New York. Brave αχό Pious.—Among the many unrecorded acts of true heroism by unknown men, during the late war, we find the tallow ing which some eye-witness has chronicled in the Edgefield, S. C., Advertiser: During Longstreet's campaign in Tennes see, white a portion of his army was under a fearful fire of shells Irom the enemy, at Campbell's station, a private soldier, within a few feet of the colonel of his regiment, had both of his legs torn off. The regiment was not fighting but waiting orders. The wound ed man was lifted a couple of yards in the rear to die. Another private now matched down the line under a bail of missiles, and said to the commanding officer, "Colonel, may I have a few moments of prayer with that dying man ?" The colonel said, "Are you a clergyman ?" The private answered, "I am." "Then," said the colone·, "do a· you desire.'* And the man of God knelt and prayed with and tor the dying mao five or ten minutes, without moving or swaying his body, seemingly totally unconscious of a storm of shot and shell, which, the colonel tells us, be never saw surpassed in ftary. In a tew days the praying private was announced in field oi deis as chaplain of the regiment— "promoted for gallantry aod piety In the field." The regiment was the Hampton Le gion. The colonel was Qary. The privât· soldier was the Rev. W. M. Thomas, now pas tor of the Methodist churches ot our circuit. aiSCBLUKBOIII NOTICES.
