Among the better elats of mandarins the writer en- joyed the acquaintance of one whose reputation for both just dealing and mother-wit stood very high. He resi- ded in the Pei-chih-li province, and much esteemed in the neighborhood Upon ti certain occasion two men, one of whom sold tea-oil and the other rice. c-Huie before him to decide a dispute re- garding the proprietorship of a measure made of basket work. It should be mentioned that the Chineso produce wicker ware of so close a texture that it will almost contain water without leaking; and easily curries nny viscid buch as oil or molasses. Well, the oiiman'i- story was that ho had lent this basket work which he had only used a few times, to the riccman a few weeks before, but that he now refused to return it. The riceman, on the other hand, declared that he had never borrowed the measure at all; he had purchased it new some months previously, and it had never been used fur anything but rice. An examina- tion of the measure simply showed that it was coated with rice-dust. The mag- istrate asked if they had any witnesses, and each brought a shop man who con- firmed his own's master's story. It was a case of ''big lie someirhero, without doubt.

Addressing the parties, he said 1 pronounce that the measure belongs to the oiluir.n. and that the riceinan it no better than a thief.

It appears that tea-oil when carried in a basket- work vessel, a very fine seed in the interstices, and when dry and the article is beaten, they of course fallout. Some of these seeds were iu the rice-dust which fell from the meas- ure under the thebambooing it received so that of course the story that it had never been used for tea-oil was a false- hood. The penalties of giving a wrong de- ci-iioii place Chinese magistrates at times in queer positions, as if it can be shown that they have decided contrary to evidence, they are liable to the same flogging which 'bey dispense witli so liberal a hand to those beneath them. Not only is the sentencing magistrate himself thus liable, but the superior judge, who confirms a wrongful sentence on appeal, is equally so. NOTHING LIKE ing like Grammar! Better go without a cow than go without that. There arc numberless professors" who go tramp, tramp, tramp, my around the country, peddling a weak article, by which "iu twenty days" they guarantee to set a man thoroughly up in the English language. An in- stance in point comes from Greenville, Alabama, where a professor had la- bored with the youth of that people, and taught them to dote on grammar according to Morris' system. During one of the lectures the sentence, Ma- ry milks the was given out to be parsed. Each word had been parsed save one, which fell to Hob a six- teen-year-old, near tho foot of the class, who commenced thus: Cow is a noun, feminine gender, singular number, third person, and stands for Mary." "Stands for Mary said the excited professor. How do you make that Bo- answered the noble pupil, if the stand for Mary, how conld Mary milk her Rev. Mr. B----------, passing Deacon premises one evening, was _reatly horrified at hearing the pious official swearing in the most acoom- jlished manner at his cow, which had lad just kicked his pail into the middle of next week. Observing his minister ooking over the fence at him, the dea- con said apologetically I am really, afraid Mr. I shall never be able to en- oy religion as long as I keep that cow."

The Assessor of the Covington. Kv.. District e.-curtinc: nine lady friends through the Internal Revenue office, when a re- port was circulated among the clerks that Brighain Young had arrived with a number of his wives. From down stairs and up stairs came clerks. Rooms, halls, nnd corridors were filled with a cu- rious throng of beth sexes, who forgot all about official busisness in their over- powering anxiety to get a peep at the supposed most married husband of the age. The excitement lasted twenty minutes before an explanation took place, and the gentleman was released from the perplexing attention he Tens receiving. It, was funny, however, it lasted. A niggardly old resident of the town of X. J., hiving been so unfortunate as- to lose his wife, went to an undertaker to secure a cof- fin, particular in inquiring the cost of the cheapest one. and on being told the price, objected to it as exorbitant. My dear sir." said the undertaker, tho wood aud nails are worth nearly as much as I ask for it." said tho widower, couldn't you make her a thinner with less lumber and nails in it? I don't care if it is a tight fit, so long scrousro her into it." as we can The question is not. what ought I tg do? but what am I doing If you are praying for your enemy, there Is good reason to hope that your heart is right.; if you restrain prayer fur him. there is good reason to helieve that your heart is not right. A right heart towards a foe is never found coupled with forget- fuluess of him at the throne of grace. Wherever you are, and whatever cir- cumstances 3'ou are in. do something that shall go on benefiting men after you are dead, if ft is only to plant a tree or a bush to beautify a house or enhance tho comfort of travelers. Do not be content with simply helping your own self. Try to make ten happy in a take ten years, and you will have made three thousand six hundred nnd fifty persons happy, or brightened a small town by your contributions to the fund of general joy. A quaint writer says I have seen women so delicate that they were afraid to ride for fear the horse woufd run away, afraid to sail for fear the boat would upset, afraid to walk for fear tho dew might jfall; but 1 never saw one ifraid to be married, which is f.ir more riskful than till throe put together.
