PEDIGREE :  "I Am Tired."  I am tired and weary of this dall life.  Of its eniSless cares and ceaseless strife;  Willingly, gladly this night would I part  With its paiD, and ease my sad troaN bled heart.  In vain do I sigh for some haven of rest,  Some sweet tar off land, by peace ever  blest;  In vain do I long lor some soothing ^ repose,  A.way from my friends, as well as my foes.  For I'm tired ot deceit, of fashion and art.  Of cruehiDg each impulse of troth from my heart.  And I'm tired of friends who change at a breath,  Tire ! of 'He, and longing for death.  In the niiiht time of sorrow, I long for the day^  Still too tired to watch, and too hope^ less to pray-  When the sunshine once more makes the shadows grow bright, yen then in my heart, there's no thrill ot delight.

Mitchell, ■ „„..X JuagoCotmty Coiut.  seeing my bright blossom  lie, Bilual ^ o< the Order-How They Prove Themselves Up.  We have before maintained that the ramps scouring about the country are a regularly organized fraternity, having a general understanding with ode another, and having a riiual of questions and answers. Their unis brm appearance, their periodical vis-» is to the same localities, their regular calls at the same house where they have before procuretl food, all points to this. Sheriff Walls, of this city, las found curious emblems about Ihem, has studied their character and 8leQ:erl to Iheir conyersation, until he can tell a regular ipilinted tramp rom an impo'ster. -The following amusing and instruc'ive dialogue took place between the Sheriff and one of squad of tramps recently committed ojail:  'From whence came you?' 'From a town io New York called erftsalem.'  'What's your bustness here?' 'To learn to subdue my appetite and 10 sponge my living from an indulgent public.'  'Theu you are a regular tramp, I presume?'  'I am so taken and accepted where^ ever I go.  How ami to rccognize you as a ramp?  'By the laraeness of my feet and general carnivorous appearance.'  'llow do you know yourself to be a tramp?  'In seeking fjod; by being otten denied, but ready to try again.'  How gained you almittance to this  town?'  'By a good many lone tramps.' 'How were you received?' 'Oa the end of a night policeman's billy, presented at my head.'  How did the policemno dispose of you?' .  'He took me several limes (iround the town to ihe south, east and ; west, where he found the City Marshal, Po-ice JuJge,and the jailor, where a great many q-iestionu were asked,'  'What advice did' the judge give you?'  'He advised me to walk in upright, regular steps, and to denounce (rainpN iog.'  'Will you be off or from?' •^With your permission I'll be oil veiy quick.' : . 'Which way arejydu traveling?' 'East.' ;  'Of what are ydU in pursuit?' 'Work—which,.hy my own endeavs ors and the assistlaDce ot others, t  Bojr0 to iiroiir Plows.

"A merchant prince," witli a whole block covered by stores, and!i a hnndred'clerks, a palatial residence on the hill, and equipage to sait, is a, vision which quite overcomes thej somber sense of tl^e boy whose shoeej have the odor of the mellow furrow,!  and whose shirt sleeves are stained!  11  with the rich ioice of the corn-bladesJ With ruddy face and a round, strongj pulse, ripe products of the ozone of forest and field, be doffs his dustjjj suit of hand made clothes for thd flimsy fabrics of the jobber's tradejl and quits home and independence lo|| join the pale raoks of mercantile lifej: fburteeu-fitteentbs of whom lose heart;! and hope before they are forty years old. ■ H  "Ye«, "ihere is room at the top=,1 and "there are princes among merj chants," but it is safe to say tha^ yery fdw young men will reach thé top in professional life, and fewer still will wield the scepter of a mercantile prince.

In GeOtge's humble estimation, tjhe tyrotoxicon is the bluest failure ¡pn rea)rd.  buckets ajajd guUers about his place, lest they retain water too long and thus breedl mosquitoes. Contrary to popular belief, these little musical cummerliajga are not wafted in by breezzs ii|om distant ponds and lagoons, but live and eyentually perish in the nei^borhood of their breeding plac^. A ub of water left standing too long, a house gutter that has not enough si »at, eyen a yase ot flowers, will send fc rth enough of these pests to set a! dozen families kicking, scratching and swearing for a week. A careful study of the mosquito for a term of yiears has reyealed several interesting facts relative to bis habits and career] In the first place it is alway^ tl|ie neighbor's carelessness that gives jiiim a chance to quit his harmless i|iggletail existence and become a fercjcious blood sucker. Everybody wUl testify to this. Again there are several species. There is the small compact operator th%t comes through the open window singing high falsetto, steers direct for the bacjk of the sleeper's hand and drives his ^auge to the socket the first whack! Then there is the socias ble mosquip that lives under and behind the bed with a voice like the hum of a telegraph wire, that waits until all is buiet creeps gingerly up over the fo(| t board and bites the heel on the edgj. One bite will furnish enough scratching to last a full grown man eight |iOurs. This same fellow, however, dpes not object to nipping the edge of! the sleeper's hand ii it hangs out 6|f bed. It is commonly supposed that the sides of the hands and feet are choscn because the bite hurts worse, The fact is, however, that the pal ns and soles are tough and the back is ha'try, and a knowK edge of this is born with every individual moiquito. Then comes the amous day mosquito, a long, lank cadaverous speckled-sided brute, ab^ solutely deVoid of tact and discernment. He 3t is that in broad day-ight calmly settles on your knuckles  and goes to  ring a fayor upon you. To kill one  aires a good like  of these nq nerves, lightning movement' Tbese contr  hat mosquitoes live only tweatys bur hours. "^There are men living who will swîac that the day variety will exist and keep busy half the win»« er. A fortline is in store for the man who will invent a defense against he mosquito that will not sweat the beneficiary to death. Such a contrivance would work a Revolution in men's dispositions, for it is obyious hat he whci fights the midnight pest s not helped thereby in his efforts to be an amiaple citizen. It is on record also that thé first mention of the mosquito occurs about time that phil"» osophy as an ashionable  worK as if he was conteç-  eye, steady rapidity ot and years of practice, adict the scientific theo/y,  occupation became un-—ifacon Telegraph.  A Solitary SCorseman.  .Arkansas Trayeler  Captain jNlgglesworth, who is a dandidate f0r the legislature, stopped at the unpretentious house of old Sam Saber. After supper, while the can^ didatb was sitting on the porch, smok^ ingacigar. Saber's little boy shyly approached!  "Come here, my son. Sit on my knee. Now you're fixed. Do you go to school?"  "No, but me an' Dick killed a water moccasin yistidy." '•Youdid,^' "Ah, hah;'  "Were you not afraid be would bite you?"  "Ho, he couldn't bite me. I could git outen his way an hit him with a rock.". 1  "My little man, after awhile you can tell the people that you sat on Captain Ni^glesworth's knee."  "Ho, that ain't nuthin' fer tell. 1 sot on pap'? knee yistidy, an' he's big-ger'n you."!  "Yes, It would be something to tell, for I'm goiqg to the legislature." "Pap, says you ain't." "What?"jputting the boj down, "Yes, whjBn he seed yer comin' ho said, 'yond^ir comes that blamed fool. He thinks tie's goin to the legislator' but he ain't got sense enough to holler when ha's dog bit. That's what my pap sai^d." "Get away."  A few moments later, had the night not been sd dark, a solitary honeman might haye been seen riding along the old military road.  Husband (who has just. returned from his ofjice)—"Well, Maria, children all wel ?" Loving wife—• Nev'»  ^leat Replies«  Andrew Jackson, it is related, waa at one Ume entertained at dinner by a gentleman, and among those present was one of those people who finà their way into story books, etc, as the type oi that offensive class of Americans who are always tratlinj? their nationality in the dost in the eâort to exact their indiyidual-independance. Tb|s particular gentleman, over the wine and walnuts after dinner, in order to emphasize his own independence of disposition, of which he was loudly boastfal, remiarked with a rare exhibition of self-complacence to (ran-eral Jacks dD:  'I always vote against you, sir.'  The company was naturally rendered speechless by this unexpected disclosure, and the scene aqtually looked squally; but General Jfljckson put a etopper on the boastful individual and avoided further ^rouble by smilingly remarking:  'And I, sir, have always fought the battles of my country that you might enjoy that privilege.' ]  Another instance of a happy response is that an old Southern judge —but whether judge by courtesy or in fact, the wnter cannot state—who most have had the faculty of quick and appropriate reply pret'y well developed, if the story related of bim is true. Speaking at a certain place one evening in.the interest of his own candidacy for Congress, some one in the audience, who evidently bad a good memory, inquired:  'Didn't you speak here just before the war?'  'I did,' promptly respondeti the jod(2[e.  'And didn't you say we could whip the domed Yankees with popguns?'  'I did,' replied the unabashed judge, 'but confound 'em, they wculiin't figbt that way !' i  - ' ^ --!  !Eggs lor JXatchiDg.  If the rules given by an authority in Franco—where poultry matters receive so much successful attention —were strictly followed, we should hear less about addled eggs, chickens coming dead, or too we^k to break out of the shell vyhen fullj developed. Never let the eggs pass over oue day in the nest when laid, and it would be better to pick them up three or four times a day, or as soon after being laid as possible.— This prevents the prolonged contact of the heat of each successive laying hen, which is apt to create a premature development of the germ in the egg, making it liable to perish when this beat is withdrawn Keject all with soft shell or in any way misshapen, or surrounded with a circular ring, or having oue end with an uneven or rough surface. Also those very narrow or unusually round, or wanting in si/e, or two arge, or double yolked. The sooner they are set, the more certainty of hatcbing, and the more quickly; eggs set immediately after being aid often hatch in nineteen days, instead of in twenty-one, the general prescribed time. Eggs wiW preserve their germinating powers wenty days; but in order to be well îept daring this time they ought o be Inroed once a day, as is done oy the hen when sitting. This nrniog hao the effect of . keeping the yolk in the ceatjre, which is im • portant; it being of greater Specific gravity than the white or albumen, its tendency is to work through to he side of the shell.—New York TrUjunr..

Night Walkers.  Alapaha Star.  There is nothing c:ore dernoraliz-ing to boys than the habit of loafing around the streets until late boors at night, indulging in profanity, and vulgarity, and eometimes annoying peaceable citizens.  We are not mncb given to moralizing, but we have often thought hat it would be difficalt to d^cover a surer road to hell than boy§ find in the practice of night walking.— The evils of this practice are progressive and" cumulative. One tad labit after ar.other is acquired, nn-il there is nothing left of th^ original boy but his outside appearance. Inside is a mass of deceit and devilry which, if laid bare, to the poblic eye, would causij a thrill of horror.  Parents should see to it that their boys are kept ofl the streets at night. A recent experience here shows what this practice is likely to culminate in. First a pebble ia thrown, jast for amusement, then h ripe egg is hurled at some unoffen'l-ing person, then some store is defaced in a nameless way, then a building ia broken into and private property destroyed. And for what ?  evil try arenlal  Don't impose on year husband just becaufe he is gcrad eaonffh to assist; yon a little in your hoiBE^ work. Don't leave ihe stove hiuio die in the red hot stove, and don't ask him to empty the aah bod. Draw a line on the ash ho4 aod don't run a free horse tO death.  Don't monopolize every hook in the closet Graciously trader Mm one nail for his very cwm—and then, in mercy, hang your "Mothar Hubbard," yoar {«lerihe, your shopping bag and yoar bonnet some other place.  Don't be explicit in giving direo-lions. When yon ask him t j go np stairs for your portemonnaie, tell him it is either on the table, or in the further corner of the left hand side of the upper barean drawer, or in the pocket of yoar brown dress iif the closet. He will have no trouble in finding it—if yoo (»tn tell him just where it is, espeeially the pocket.  Don't ask him where he has been the moment he entera the house, or where he is going if he starts oot for a walk before breakfast. It nettles him, and men hate to have such pointed questions sprang apon them. Besides that we live under a free flag.  Don't ask him to walk the floor with the baby half the night. A man who tramps indastrioasly around a billiard table three nights in a week can't be expected to be on duty at home the other three nights. Have mercy on him and give the man an opportunity to recuperate.  Don't leave hair in the comb or your neck curls where they will stick to bis hiir brush.  Don't mend bis hosiery with cotton having knots in it larger than a pea.  Don't ecoldlhim becaoee he leaves ashes in his pipe. One of the privileges of a married man is to leave an old pipe full of ashes in just the position to empty the contents on the window sill or the mantle-piece the moment it is touched.  Don't indulge in flights of temper when your husband BUggests how his mother did.

With a view to de-iei^oing aboat how much the dairy farmers aroand Geneva knew ajbont bàtter he showed the sample to them as they came at odd times into the office, telling them it was a sample of Elgin batter. Every last man of tibem smacked his lips and d^ared it to be as goifd butter as he had ever-tasted.  'Isn't it a barniog shame.' said the wicked yoang man to one innocent dairyman, 'that congress doesn't hurry up and pass a bill prohibiting the manufacture of that miserable, greasy, tasteless etuñ', oleomargarine?'  *Ye8, it is,' said the honest yeoman; 'bat, then, let 'em make all the oleomargarine they want to, Üiere'II always be a market and good pric^ for saoh batter as that.'  Tes, but think of tbe poor people who can't pay high prices for batter. , And, then, too, think of the ignórant folks who.don't know good baiter like this from nasty bull grease.' .  *WeH all I've gotto say,' replied the dear old granger, 'is that any man who can't tell that kind o' butter Arom oleomargarine ought to bo pizened with the bogus stufif.'  'If that farmers eye should happen to fall on this story that wicked yoang man will probably get somo-thicg like his just deserts.  The Old aian Was Thanktul.  "Oh, there's plenty of patriotism left in the country," said a journalist from Indiana, at the press headquarters yesterday. "It Harnea^ up in all sorts of men on occasion. I was working at the polls in Indianapolis on election day,. 1880. The fìght between the Crarfìeld men and the Hancock men was hot, I toll yon. A venerable man, oue of our sestcitizens, rushed np to me late iu the afetrnoon, pale aud agitato 1, and cried out:  "Bro. Thompson, the other sido are buying votes—buying them!"  'You don't say so!' I answered. How much are they giying?'  Three dollars, the infamous Bconndrelel'  •Well, I answered, 'we're f;iviug  •Keally?'  'Sure; and we'll raise 'em- out of their boots, no matter how high they go.'  'Tears came in the aged eyes, nud in a trembling voice ho said:  Thank God, the causo of good  government is safe!'  -—  Reirain,  We know of no evil that is moro predominant among the men, especially the young men, of the present day, than the rudo way of lightly speaking of woman's virtue aud integrity. A young man should very seriously and studiously count the cost—weigh well the constquencoH before he assails tho characti^r of his mother's sex. One's own mother and sisters are generally txccpled, but it must bo considered that other women may be the mother or feiistor of some one else. Th^re are a few cases on record where m íu bav« been known to slander their own wives. Tar and feathers would bo air too comfortable for such brutcH. Employers run risks in taking men of the above type mentioDed into their employ. Their integrity i» sadly in want of reform, iien have no more right to parallel the ''«entle sex" by tbe few fast, degraded women, they occasionally meet, than women have to measure therxi by the same rod as tbe criminal» who are broiight before our coorti». Tbe chief happineKB of men depend^) upen tbe sex from which they by divine direction are to chooso a helpmeet—a better half.
