Agassiz is described as follows: “His fig ure is portly. His voice is full and rich. His smile is geniality itself. He smiles not with his lips alone, but with his merry brown eyes, with his whole kind, expressive, beaming face.” Can South Bend beat this ? A number of orthodox men of wealth have determined to publish a magazine in New York which shall be entirely unobjectionable in its theological tone. They intend that it shall be free from the heresies and dangerous theories which, they allege, are to be found in all the monthlies. John Yan Dahm of Fort Wayne (says the Cleveland Leader) was playing with a pistol in hiB house, the other day, when it went off | and made an eyelet hole in his hip. If ho was named Jones he might be called a Jones fool; If his name was Smith he might be called a Smith fool; but unhappily his is another name. The temperance cause in Kentucky has been somewhat set back by the announce* ment that one of the few water-driDkers in that State has just discovered at the bottom of his well the body of a neighbor who disap peared four years ago; and the majority of the people have resolved to stick to whiskey and let well alone. Most little boys are fond of nuts; but few would care to swallow one whole, especially when it was made of iron and screwed on a hit of rod an inch and a half long and a quar ter of an inch thick, as did a little hoy six years old last week in Leicester, Vt. The doctor isn’t certain whether a mild (d) wrench will suffice to unscrew it. Then his wife’s mother next he, hapless, soughte, For comforte In his strange -alaniftle; "At my witte’s ende am I, and cleane dlstraughte Nor anie stay is to my grief’said he ‘•For that my wife knows not my house to rule Nor to a needle will she condescende, Sooner than goe in motley, like a foole My coate I bringe, and pray yon it to mende.” Soe she the garment mended on the spot, Yet did he goe away, and praised her not. ‘•'How beautiihl!” said the tallest of Amer can poets, regarding with delight the mosaic cherubs (Raphael’s) on a lady’s sleeve but tons, “How beautiful 1” “What a] pity,” re plied the lady, mischievously, “that you I poets are not always as good as these beauti ful cherubs you praise so heartily!” “Ah!” answered S-, “I really think we might be, if we were physically constructed in tha same way,—all head and wings 1” Hattie Clayton, whose suicide, at Mont gomery, has been reported by telegraph, did not die, as stated, because she was unable to find employment,but because,according to her posthumous confession she was “too proud to do housework.” Poor girl 1 It was sensi tiveness that carried her off. Her rights had been trampled upon by the iron heel of pov erty. She had a soul above brooms. She was proud. She was unappreciated. We shall miss her. And all that sort of thing. Since the introduction of the postal cards, Calino daily sends off packets of them to the provinces. One of his friends, yesterday, said to him, “Why, my dear boy, if you go in that way, you will certainly ruin yourself.’, “Ruin myself? How so ? Don’t you know that a letter sent to the provinces costs five sous, whi’e a postal card costs only three sous?” “To be sure I do.” “Well, then. don t you see that I make two sous on every postal card I send; so that the more I send, the more I make.” A jackal who had pursued a deer all day with unflagging industry was about to si lze him. when an earthquake, which was doing a little civil engineering in that part of the country, opened a broad chasm between him and his prey. “Now here,” said he, “is a distinct interference with the laws of nature. But if we are to tolerate miracles there is an end to all progress.” So speaking he endea vored to cross the abyss at two jumps. His fate would serve the purpose of an impressive warning if it might be clearly ascertained; but the earth hav.ng immediat.ly pinched to gether again the research of the moral inves tigator is baffled.—Fables of Zambri, the Par see. One of the boldest of German materialists came to this country, last fall, and nas not attracted the attention he anticipated. A ci tation from one of his recent letters to the Gartenlaube amusingly illustrates the vapory generalizations that, in some circles, now pass current foi science. Speaking of an eveuing party, at which he noticed that the ladies in the round dances moved with a more gliding step than their sisters in Ger many, he finds a scientific explanat on of the fact in those laws of race which gave the In dian his crafty, silent, footfall, as he stole on the slumbering village in order to murder the innocent inhabitants. Knots on Plum Teees.—A correspond ent of the American In it itute Farmers’ Club says that for removing knots from plum trees, he ta ,es a paint brush, dips it in spirits of tnrpentine, and thoroughly saturates the kno . beirg careful not to touch the tree ex cept in the diseased parts. The turpentine kills the excrescence, and the tree puts on healthy branches below it. He burns all branches of diseased trees removed in prun ing.
