Where nre you going, Buck to chut with u.y through pas sengers And Dirk Davis, the conductor, lei the tnnil car and entered (he throug: coach attached to the train. Closing tho door he walked straigh to an old man seated in the center o the car. His hair and beard were a white as snow, but there werenocrow' feet on his forehead, nor wrinkles OD hie cheeks His eyes fi ihliod with th light of lusty ojarihood, though his bai would indicate that he hud doused th is daughter, and in due time they re- covered from the effects of the chloro- 'orm. When Mabel looked upon the blue- man, she recognized Jured Abbott, n rejected lover. His confederate, iurdock, she did not know. The man who was waiting near the station for he abduetinsr pnrty never fell into the dutches of the law but it is certain hat the principal and his eager ussist- nt saw the inside of a penitentiary. It was Dick Davis' hand that held he bell rope while Burdock tucgf-d t, and his signal that increased the peed of the triin, thus effectively Teventing the villains' escape.

Probably no class of.people are com pelled to be more economical than far uiers; but in the end they enjoy lifi quite as well ns any other class of citi zens. A merchant may dress better than a farmer, but could wo read th anxieties ot his he is to support bis family in he is to pay his notes at the ho is to collect his doubtful debts, anc many other things, we would decide that the farmer, with hia new suit o clothes once in three years, and his plain style of living takes more real enjoy- ment of life than the professional man does. But farmers should live within their income, no matter how small it uisj be It is not eo much in saving as in taking care of what you have that most affects your income. Juct think of the reckless folly of leaving a farm wagon out, exposed to the rain and sun, sum- mer and winter, as some farmers do. It does secui as though such furuiera ore partially demented. Not only wagons but all kinds of farming implements ura left out by many farmers to be ruined by sun and rain. It is the mosl important branch of economy to keep implements well pointed, and under cover when not in use. A rich farmer may be able to afford to be careless in this respect, but not the farmer of small means. No farmer can afford to use the old-slyle, cumbrous farm tools, that do poor work, and require much more time to do their work tban the im- proved implements do; and here also is the be.it economy in buying the best implements that exist, because "time is to say nothing of the superior manner in which the best implements do their work, by which crops are in- creased. But in all your efforts to economize, don't neglect to give jour children a good common school educa- tion, at least; as it costs but a trifle to send them to the district school now everywhere established and see that they attend regularly, and that they learn their lessons. No farmer living can afford to raife a family of children without a school education. But ouc of the best aids in giving children a general knowledge of what exists in the world, and what is transpiring iherein, are tho newspapers and maga- zines of the day and you will find it economy that pays well to subscribe for them liberally, as no farmer exists who ha? ever repented of laying before his children a general supply of the best current news and literature of the limes. A Clerical Joke. A clergyman, a widower, recently created quite a sensation in his house- hold, which consisted of seven grown- up daughters. The reverend gentle- man was absent from home for a num ber of dajs, visiting in an ndjoininc county. The daughters received a let- ter from their father which stated that he had married a widow with six sprightly and that he might be expected home at a certain time. The effect of that news was a great shock to the happy family. The girls, noted for their meekness and amiable seemed another set of be- ings there were weeping, and wailing, and tearing of hair, and all manner of naughty iliinp" said The tidy home was neglected, and when the arrival came the house was anything but in- vitmg At last the Rev. Sir. X----- came, but he was alone. Ho greeted his daughters as usual, and, as he viewed the peg'ected apartments, there was a merry twinkle in his eye The daughters were nervous and evidently anxious. At last the eldest mustered courage and asked Where is our mother In said the good man. But where is the widow with six children whom you.-wrote you had mar- ried l! I married her lo another man, my he replied; delighted at the success of his joke. CAYENNE pepper will keep the but- ter nnd storeroom free from ants and cockroaches.

In concluding an article on the last corn crop, an Alabama editor remarked, We have on exhibition in onr sanc- um a magnificent pair of curs."

A Pans correspondent writes about ho dismembered portions of human odies that nre constantly being picked up in the Seine. For that matter, at his season of tho year, any number of ig towns can be seen coming down the An Essay Ort Mule, The uiulu is thu only animal tha Noah didn't tbkc into the ark will: hint. 1 have looked over the 1'reigh list careful, and could not sec a mult way-billed for nny place. So clear, beaded a man as Noab, did not dare (o take one on board, ns he knew he would kick a hole in her in less than a week. I don't know a man on whose head you could pour quicksilver and run less risk of spilling off tban on Noah's He was a dreadful level-headed man and before tho freshet was over every body on earth realized the fact. The origin of-the mule is developed in z good deal of mystery. Tradition in- forms us that when the flood had sub sided nnd the ark had landed on Mount Ararat, Noah was very much surprisec in one of his first observations to find a good healthy mule standing on the top of an adjoining mountain. The same tradition informs us that the mule is the only animal that lived through the flood outside of the ark. The uiule can be considered in a good many ways, thought the worst from which to con- sider him is directly from behind, any- where within a radius of ten feet. I never consider mule from that point, unless I atn looking through the flue ol a boiler. The mule bas one more le.j than a and he can stand on one and wave the other three round in as many different directions He has only three senses, hearing, seeing and sincll- ing. lie has no more sense of taste than a stone jug, and will cat anything that contains nutriment, and he don't care whether it be one per cent or nine- ty-nine. All he asks is to pass him along his plate, with whatever happens to be handy round the he won't co away and blow how poor the stenk is lie just eats whatever is set before him and asks no questions. Mules arc nat- urally deaf, out that supreme wisdou that teaches the little boy to wipe his nose on his sleeve, has fitted out the uiule with a pair of ears that counter- acts it se he can hear as read- ily as a person when you don't want him to. These ears answer a double tunnels to pour sound into his head, aod also as fans to brush awav flies with and keep bis head cool They ure hung by hinges to the of the head, aud flop backward and forward like a pairof.wet trousers round a boy's legs. Iu cold latitudes quite a tasty business is done iu mules ears. The ears arc cut off and dried, and sold for show shoes, and then thu stubs are trimmed up and the niulep are sent to the South and sold for horses. In tbi? way a great nnny fine horses were pur- chased for the army by the United States. If I were to have a large picture of innocence to hang up in my purlur, and I did not wish to sit for it myself, I should pet a correct likeness of n mule There is innocence enough depicted in o mule's countenance to fit out a Sunday school class. It looks as guileless as ;u angle-worm A mule never grows old or dies. Once brought into existence he continues to live somewhere in the South. Mules nrc chiefly found in the South and West. They have been more abused than Jud.is Iscuriof. A boy who would not throw a slone at mulcjif he got a chance, would be con- fidcrtd by his parents too mean to raise. The mule a good worker, but be cannot be depended upon He is liable to strike, and when a mule itnkes, human calculation fails to find out any rule by which to reckon when he will go to work agjiu. It is useless to pound him, for be will stand more beating thau a fcitting-rouui carpet lie has been known to fctand eleven on one spot apparently thinking ot something, and then start off as though nothing had happened I never owned a mule I came near buying one once. He was a fine look- ing animal his ear? stood up like the side of an Episcopal church. His tail wns triaimed down so it looked like a tar bruah leaning up ogainst him. He he was stripod off like the American flag, and Raphael's cherubs never looked more angelic than did that mule He looked all innocence, though he was in no sense. The owner sat in the wagon, with his chin resting on his hand and his elbow on his knee. In the other hand he held a stick with a brad in the end of it I examined the mule  ut I dont reeolloct ever seeing funeral gotten up with less pomp and display han on this occasion. IP I had my 'hoice to work in a nitro-glycerine fac- ory, take care of a mule, I should go for the factory, as in the case of an xplosion, there would be more possi- lility of my friends finding little mementoes of mo, with which to assuage heir grief. A very small piece of me would lighten a vefy big sorrow.

There are, perhaps, more who ascribe their weakness of sight to a use of their eyes under an insufficient artificial illumination than to uny other" one cause In p, great many this may n'ot be strictly true, but there can be no doubt thut faulty artificial light ia one of tho in oft productive' causes of a certain class of injuries, to which the eye can be exposed The two1 sources of trouble with the ordinary artificial lights that they arc- not pure white, and secondly, that are unsteady. The first delect is found in all artificial lights except the lime, electric and magnesium lights; tho sec- ond especially in candles and gas. The yellowness is, in a measure, counteracted by using, in the case of lamps and gas, chimneys of a violet or blue tine, and tho flickering of the gas may be obvi- ated largely .by employing an Argsnd burner All things considered, a Ger- man student lamp furnishes tho moat satisfactory light The next best is gas with an Argand burner. The chimneyir of both may, as above suggested, advantageously of a light-blue The position of the light in  .f the body and the work be allowed lie in the light under the shade, which will protect the eyes from the of tha- flame. If no shade is used thu baftfr should be turned to the souiee ut' tho' light, wliicli should fall over tho left- shoulder, The same rule applies in thrf lijanagement of daylight. In ibis easef the ligbt should come from behind and slightly above, nod fall directly on work, whence it is reflected on the It should never fall directly in the laca. The light in the room during sleep is also nut without in influence. As rule, the room during sleeping hou should be dark; and, in particular, fihould bo taken to avoid sleeping site a window where on opening eyes in the morning a flood of strong light will fall on them. Kven the strongest eyes 'are, after the of the tiitjit. more or loss senitive to impression of int6n.-e light. The eyerf must have time to accustom tbeuisclvcrf to the stimulous. Attention shoould be called to thef injurious effect? that sometimes follow reading on railroad cars. On account of the unsteadinefcs of the page, reading under these circumstances is exceeding- ly trying to the eyes, and should never" be persisted in for any considerable length of time. During convalscence from sevcTe" illness the eyes are generally the last regain their lost power. Especially is this the case women after child- birth, and too much care cannot be taken to put as little strain upon the eyes possible at this time.

A etanger appeared at a saloon, having in his possession several boxes which he claimed con- tained valuable jewels whinh he would hko to kerp safely for a time. For this- purpose he encaged o room nnd had lha boxes placed in it. He occupied the room a day or so, and then left, leaving the thins? there In tho course of a day or .so he roturncd. saying tbet he ftlld been detained nwap by business bnt wmild piy for the room just the same. While he wag unking this explanation a cecond stranger, who spoke very broken English, appeared and called for a drink. He had no money but would like to sell the large diamond cross which he wore The first strin- ger examined it. nnd said that as an ex- pert he should retard the cross M worth at least 84.000. The price of the article was S200, and if the saloon keeper would let him havn that amount he would at once go to the bank, draw some money, and return him for the favor. The uioney was furnished, with the exceptions of and tire two strangers departed never to re- turn It took their host but a few min- utes to sec that he had been victimized, and he rushed for the boxes of jewelryf only to find them filled with stones.
