Mr. Murry, in his "Camp life in th gives the following graph ic account of the catching of an ener getio trout; did you ever land a trout 1 do not ask if you ever jerked some pour little fellow out of a brook three feut across, with a pole six inches around at the butt, and BO heavy as to require both hands and feet to hold it out. No that's not 'landing a trout. But did you ever sit in a boat .with nine ounces ol lance-wood for a rod anc 200 feet of braided bilk on your double- acting reel, und hook a trout whoso strain brought tip and butt together aa you checked him in sonic wild flight and tested your quivering line from to reel km t? No one knows what game there is in a trout unless he has fought it out, matching such a roc against a three pound fish, with forty feet of water underneath, and a clear unimpeded sweep around him. Ah, then it is that one discovers what will und energy lie within the mottled skio of a trout, und what a miracle of veloc- ity he is when-roused. I Jove the rifle and I have looked along the sights antut while btill in the air the boat glided backward, and when he touched the water I was thirty feet away and ready or his rush. It came; and as he passed us, some forty feet off, he clove .ho water as a cross bow might cleave ho air. for five minutes the reozy lasted. Not a word wao ottered. The whizz of the line through the wa- er, the whir of the flying reel, and an occasional grunt from John as the fish doubled on the, boat, were the only ounds heard. When "suddenly-'in one >f his wil'dest flights the terribly taxed od straightened itself' with a spring, be prersure ceased, the line slackened, rid the fish lay again on the bottom. Wiping the sweat from my I urned to John and said; What do do yon think of that? 7 Mr. replied John, laying he paddle down and drawing the sleeve >f his woolen shirt across his forehead eaded with perspiration, that fish is ugly if ho should get the line over his jack he'd smash the rod like a pipe- tern.' He wont get it over his re- lied I. Beady with your paddle; le's getting too much breath.' But I said John, looking af- ectionalely at the rod, as he' took up he paddle, if I was in your place, and e did get the line over his I would part my taokle before I smashed hat rod.' I wont do either. nnd as I nswered I gave and the trout tarted again. Twice did he break the1 urface a hundred -feet away, flinging imaelf out like1 a black'bass. Once' id he partially get the leader over, his, ach and dashed away like', lightning, rhile John, anxious to save so true a od from ruin, shouted to me, 'iPart the ut.' But whoever finberman, rben his blood is up, to refasea.risk to ave the game I screamed to John to boot the boat to, one .side, and trie last fooi of was given T ad ibutt. _, The hearjr fish an pliant pod were 'pitted one agains another. For a moment the quivering tip raUlcd upon the bars of the reel The fish struggled, and shook himsell but the tenacious fibres would not part He ceased to battle, came panting to the surface; and rolled over upon his side The boat shot 'toward him, and as i glided by, Jphn passed the landing-ne benealb him, and the brave fighter lay upon the His, tail, acrors its base, measured five inches, and hi length from tip to tip was iwventeer inches and three-quarters." Tralslng. It takes a sound body: to make a sound mind. -J. Work Is abt vulgar., ;Si> long as the brain needs the juices o the body, so long will hard work be the fundamental clement in (he develop. ment of the Btind 'Business is emi- nently fit for a man of genius, and to earn a livelihood is the best way to sharpen one's wits. Bcnidea, fcmii affairs offer better opportunities at" the present than the so-called professions Therefore, "shonldl be thoroughly and practically trained for business, in order that they may suc- ceed, and ..become m, credit to whatever calling they may At .the tame time they should be educated not to despise labor; after1 alCrt'is only by hard work that we schieTe any suc- cess worthy of the name. A brave exploit was performed by t Boston-fireman at the recent borhing of a tenement house in that eity, de- scribed as follows One of the most thrilling incidents of t he disaster the rescue of M rs Davis, m lady who resided with her husband, John Davis, in the fourth story, over the liquor shop, Yftten the fire broke out she was, like the rest ol t he inmates, bi ade .aware of her per i I too late to avail of the' ordina- ry means of exit, and rushing to the window screamed lustily tor help. The immense crowd which filled Sbawmut avenue, were powerless to aid the poor woman whose -cries could be heard above the "shouts of the roaring of flames, and the throbs of the busy engines..mingled with'the sounds of the storm. Every face was turned upward to watch the figure at the window, dimly visible through the thick, swirling clouds of black smoke and the pelting rain. Again a frantic cry for help was heard, when, just nt the moment it seemed almost useless to hope, there was a freshfoar of wheels, the crowd parted quickly, and the Ban- ger ladder was dragged in front of the burning building. There was a few sharp calls of in a won- derful short space of time the immense affair rose up into the air until it-rested against the ..wwdopr where Airs. Davis was seen. In an instant n man .was seen to spring upon the rounds of the ladder and climb as if he were tripping on solid earth. But he had not Rone up far when it was seen he would have a warm climb of it, as the flames were now bursting out of the front of the building with irightful violence. A ng of firemen on Shawmut avenue immediately saw peril, and a stream of water was turned upon him as he ascended. He went up to the window, and seizing Davis, who was by this time in a half demented condition, under -one arm; he descended the "long ladder and depnfitod his burden in the arms 'brother As he reached the foot of the ladder a lor.g- ontinued and rousing' cheer went up from the crowd. The name of this he- ro is Clarence A. Poland. As an ev- idence the? great heat H to which he was subjected during his perilous climb, it may be stated that his lat was so blistered that he found t impossible to wear it after his decent, t being warped all out, of shape. It was necessary for a ctream of water to be played over him during the ec- tire time he was on the ladder.

A rider from each company was si multaneusly ordered forward, sword oxereiae infantry ooiu- menced. In 'the (exercise w. -against cavalry, all the.

There was also, a rirjg suspended, for thursfs eo be deliv- ered, at what would be about the levpl of an opposing horseman's throat. Two hnrdles were f laeed on sides of the hall, and afteward both on one In the first rounds the rider came'from the ranks with his revolver drown and getting .horse, nt a gat. lop, ihadc ii passing the post he fired ai the head, jumped the hurdle, returned hw pistol, and, drawing his sword, eut, as he successively passed, the head on the 'next on the ground, another head a post, and another on the ground, and; with a right thnrst, car. ried off the head on the last post. The position of the heads and their order were reversed successively. the cuts were delivered to tho right, then to the left, front and rear. When the hurdles were.placed near together, a rear cut had to be given at the head in jumping the hurdle, and other changes were made. The riding was splendid, for be it remembered that all this leaping, firing, cutting, and thurst- sng had been done without saddle or and on horses which seemed no better trained for the work any twenty-four animals one could pick out promiscuously from tiny cavalry regi- ment. The jumping of these animate was particularly bnd. Cut of th a whole I understood they were especially selected from the whole was only one good jump- er, a small, clean-limbed brown, that took his hurdle in fine style; most of the others baulked, or scrambled over them, or coming to an almost dead stop, made a sort of standing jump They did better after getting warmed up to the work, but at oo time did they make it sure for the rider that were going without trouble, or go over with sufficient of move- ment to make the delivery of cut an It .is. right, perhaps, lhaf this phoiilj be so, since in actual serv. ice, ,nd officer could depend un setting a soft a circus horse, or an English hunter, and. .to be able to ride any kind of an animal. At the conclusion of the drill the "spectators pave the hoys a round of well-deserved applause. The Path" of Safety. There is but one road to happiness and prosperity, for either individuals or a nation, and that is econbuiy and faithful persistence in the ligitmate paths of bussiness. Hence we call up. on all good people to unite in aa effort to suy the tide of wild cxuess.

The .Toronto Globe says: An appli- cation, of the Pet erboro' Band to be al- lowed) to play in (he Park has been re. ihe reason given for the refusal being that the newly planted trees would suffer from the carelessness of the persons congregated The end of the warden's answer to the request is severely ironical. It reads thus: "I beg to suggest that the old burying ground would ,be a suitable .pjace for jour performances, and the county has no objection to your using it." A butcher of .some eminence was ntely in company with several ladies nt a gnme of whist, having lost two or three rubbers, one of the ladies, ad- dressing him, naked sir, what are the stakes now'?

Mrs. Andrews said to Mr. Jordan, a? she handed him the oofc "That will pay for your work on my counter." Mr. Jordan handed it to Mr.: Hadley, the flour, feed, nnd lumber merchant, requesting his lumber bill. Mr. Had Icy gave the note back .to, Mr. Brown, saying "iThaf pays board." Mr. Brown passed it to his wife with the remark.that thuLpaid her the 820 be hiid promised. She in turn paid it to Mr. Black to settle her bread and pastry account, who handed it to Mr. Hadley, wishing credit to that amount op his flour bill, he again returning it to Mr. Brown, with the remark it settles for that month's board. Where- upon >lr Brown put it back into his pocket book, exclaiming that he never thought a 810 bill would go sb far." Thus a 810 greenback was made to pay indebtedness inside of five min- utes. ManageaMnt Dairy Cows. A correspondent of the Lancaster Farmer says on this subject One great error with farmers gene- rally is, not cutting their grtss early enough. .The difference between hay from young graen acd such as is com- monly utade is so great, that it is sur- prising that'll U not better understood Corn sown at intervals, to cut and when pasture runs of great value to keep up a regular flow ofiuilk, and aiiy that is not needed will, when cut and well cured, be far superior to common corn fodder. The latter is poor feed for milk cows, unless it be cut and steamed or scalded, adding to it what- ever jrrain is fed at the time.: Curn meal and shorts or brim, with some oil cake, contain elements necessary to pro- duce the bc-st results. Without root's of some' kind, -however, the store of feed is not complete for winter feeding. Grooming and feeding are as important to the cow as to Noisy boys or unruly curs mast not be allowed to worry cows, but instead caress and keep them quiet. Setting: Milk for Cream. It is not to be wondered' at that the average dairyman of oar Stale is zled to know what to do for the best. Prof. Wilkinson tells him plainly that nothing but shallow pans and fubcnrth duets will do while 'Prof.' Mardin is equally certain that deep pahs (20 in- sunk to the riui in water, at a temperature of 50 decrees, alone insure th'e largest vield of the best quality of butter; and now both of these are over- topped by the new Cooley which proposes to enifose the uiilk iti.a narrow can, with a water tight lid and sink tt under water, which is carefully. kept at a low temperature by the use of ice. Our own experiments satisfy us that both extremes are 'right, provided cer- tain rules, as, unalterable us those of the Medes and Persians are observed. At a temperature above GO degrees, deep cans will bot do tb'c wilk tviil usually sour before all the cream reaches the surface. When this temperature is un- avoidable, shallow and'broad pans will give the' best results. When Cold water is abundant and the tnenna of' keeping it, at 50 degrees or lower-an; at hand.it will be found that. cans, .20. inches deep, and eigfcvt or nine in diameter, will save muclir labor, and at the same time make quite much and better butter, Those dairymen whcse siluatiou is covered by oi first (Rise, should be cautious in the use: of deep cans.. It is no doubt for the want, of a proper observance ot these jimple rules that: we now ham. a. con- 9ijct of scntiiiicnt as to the cSipnrative merits of deep and shallow setting. Diamond Pointed.
