We ain't all of U3 responsible for our outside husk, no more than a horse-chestnut or a'hazel-nuj is. The kind of life I load can't be lived in white kid gloves ai d drees coats, I wasn't brougut up with many advantages, and Tm only a brakeman on the Kensselaer and Saratoga line. Old Jones waa telling you about me, was lie, sir H He'd better hold his tongue. There's more profltnble subjects of conversation than I am. But old Jones means well enough, and if he told you lo ask me how thai stTipe of white hair came cn my black mane, I ain't the man to go back on him. Oh, you needn't beg my pardon, sir ! I don't mind talkinfî about it now, though the time was whtn i could't speak of it without ^ lump coming in my 'ifroat. ' ■ ^ ~~ We hadn't been married long, Polly and me, when it happened. Polly was a trim, bright-eyed slip of .a girl as ever you'd wish to "see. She was one of the waitresses iii the Albiiny lunch room ; and the first tirue I ever set eyes upon her I made up my mind to make that girl my wife. So. when they raised my wages, I look heart and :csked her il ehe woâhi have them with me, with a wedding rin>î thrown into the bargain. "Do you really mean it, JakeP" said she, looking me full in the face, with those dark blue eyes of hors, that are like the akics at night. "I do really mean it, Polly," said I "Thou," said she, putting both her liands iu mine, " I'll trust you. I've no iving relation to advise me. so I can only take counsel with my own heart.' So we were married. I rented a little one-story house, under the hill on the height, tiiat overlooked the Hudson—a cozy place with a good-sized wood-pile at the rear, for winter meant winter in those parts, and the snow used to be drifted up even with our door-yard fence many and many a cold gray morning. And everything went smooth until Polly began to object to ray mates at the While Blackbird, and the Saturday evenings I spent with the boys, after my train was safely run onto the side track at the junction. " Why, Polly, girl," said I, " where's the harm? ^ ;man can't live by himself, like an oysteiNin ils shel}, and a social glass never yetVharmed any one." " No," said P^ly, " nota social glass, Jntfo, iMit ihp h{ii\ii_—And if'yf>u w uld ft great storm camo with it. We ware belaW by the anow which collected on tne rails, and when we reached Earldale there-waa a little girtrwho had-been sent on in the care ot the conductor who, nnuf; either waft,tliree or four hours for a way train in the cold and cheerless station, or be taken home across a snowy field by some one who knew the way. I thought of mylown little children. " I'll take her." said I—and liftoff -hemp 1 gatnereti my coarse, wwrn coat about her, and I started for the long, cold walk under the whispering pines along the edge of tho river. I honestly believe she would have frozen to death if she had been left in the cold station until the wa> train conld call for her. And whcnl ha«^ j^tf, iifraafBln -^hftrg^f her aunt, 11 'Saw by the old kitchen time-piece that it was ten o'clock. " Polly will think I have slipped back into the Slough of Despond," I said to myself, with ha>f a smile; but I'll give her an agreeable surprise!" Plowing down amid the snow-drift, through a grove of pine trees that edged a ravine at the back of my house, I Errting lightly on tho doorstep; tho door was shut and looked. I went around to the front. Here I effected an entrance, but the fire was dying on tho hearth, and little Bertie, tucked up in his crib, JAv,.. . , ...............[ only put every OVe-cent piece that you ' savings bank-^" Pihaw !" said I. "Papa, is that youP" ** Where is mamma, my son P'^said I, looking eagerly "around at the desolate room. " Gone out with the baby in her arms to look foriyou,'* he said. "Didn't you meet her, papaP" I stood a minute in silence. " Lie still, Bert^jf said I, in a voice that fa\- " 2Û sii'r .ngo and husky even to myselt::, " I will go and bring her bark." And I thought with dismay of the blinding snow-storm outside, the treacherous gorges which lay between here and the White Blackbird, the trackless woods, through which it was difficult enough to^tind one's way even in the sunshine ot noonday, and—worst of ail —the lonely track, across which an " express " shot like a meteor at a few minutes before midnight. Oh, heaven! whut possible doom might I not have brought upon myself by the wretched passion in which 1 had gone away that morning. The town clock, sounding dim and muiied through the storm, struck eleven as I hurried down the hill ! Eleven—and who Knew what a length of time might elapse before L could lind her P And like a fiery phantasmagoria bofove my utinti's eyo, J beheld the wild rush of the midnight express, and dreaded-i-I knew net what. For all that I could realize was that the storm was growing fiercer with every moment, and Polly and tho baby were out in its fury! As 8'.-eadily as I could I worked my way down toward the track, but more than once I became bewildered, and had to stDp and rellect before I could resume my quest. And when, at length, I came out close to it ruined wood and water station on the edge of the track, I knew that I was full a halt a mile below the White Blackbird. And in the distance I heard the long, shrill shriek of the midnight train! Some one else had heard it, too, for, as I stood thus, I saw, faintly visible through the blinding anow, a shadowy tigure ieiuo from the ruined shed and come out upon the track, looking with a bewildered, uncertain air up and down — the form of Polly, my wife, with tho little baby in her arms ! I hurried down to her as fast as the rapidly increasing snow-drifts would let me, but I was only ju&t in lime to drag her from the place of peril, and stand, breathlessly holding her back, while the liery-eyed monster of steam swept by with a rush and a rattle that nearly took our breath away ! "Polly!" I cried, "Polly! speak to me!" She lamed her wandering gaze toward me, with" her vague eyes that seemed scarcely to recognize mo. "Haveynn sfm my hHwlmiid P" nniii she. "One Jacob Cotterel, brakeman An Ungrateful Prisoner. The following story was told a New York Evening Poit correspondent by General Benjamin F. Butlerr A man had robbed a depot on the Stony Brook x«iIroad,&nd a dispaloh h^ b^ sent to arrest him at Lincoln on t6e fitrival of the Fitcbburg train. XhoM^table accordingly arrested him, bat the man broke away from him. The officer gave chase, and doming up witliti^ the pistol, gave him warning not to oome any nearer. - Bat he closed upoi^ him, when the man fired and killed j^hlm in« stantly. .The murdered man. a friend of General Butler^s. ** 1 aittoded the funeral," he said, " and In tlid absence of the other relations, _wh(g wer.e by tt suuw uiot'tai,' walked with the widow to the grave. When the trial came on I went to court, bat was sorry enough I had done 80.C^dge Shaw, who waa cond acting the case, called on the man for his defense^ He said he bad no coansel. aadge Shaw, looking around the court-room, said: Butler, you are appointed by tlie court as counsel for the defendant." In vain I trie l to excuse layself on account ( f the peculiar circumstancea Judge Shaw waa inexorable, and I was obliged to obey. But'when I do tmder-take a thing I generally push it through. So I hunted up the statutes and found that burglary included the breaking into houses, barnst, oatbuild» inga, etc., etc., butias a railroad depot was an unknown thing at the time the law was mdde the c&cers had no fright to arrest, a man for the crime, consequently his Belf-deiense was in a measure justifiable, so a verdict of manslaughter was brought in, and he was sentenced to State prison for- thirty years. After the sentenco I walked up to him and congratulated him on his escape. " ' Escape I' ho growled; ' do you calf this an escape P I'd rather have been hung !' "' Why the deuce didn't you tell me 80 in the first place,' I said, feelingvery much provoked at his ingratitude. 'I should have been most happy to have accommodated you 1'" . TroÑi> W.M I^NL^ 11.

In the town of West Alexander,.Penn., twelve miles from the Ohio and, two miles from the West Virginia line,: lives a magi trate who is reputed to have married 1,800 couples within two years, and lo have built a fine house with his wedding fees. His popularity arises fronj^ the fact that tho laws if PeD:^yl-vania do not require a marriage license," while those of the two neighboring Slates do. He wiil marry a couple without their leaving their carriage, or he will allow them to remain all night and take breakfast with him, charging judiciously for board and lodging. His regular charge for marrying a couplo is 33, He sometimes has from three to live couples at a time waiting to be made one, and all in a hurry, from fear lest those who pursue will catch up in time to forbid the banns. Sometimes an enraged father or terrible big brother of the bride arrives afier- the ceremony 13 over and proceeds to vent his rage on the winds and make diro threatenings, and even cfl'er violence. In an ein-Jr-geney such as thiis the magistrate's son, who is his father's constable, lays the serious charge of disorderly conduct against them. At cno time a relative, in pursuit of a bride, wai so violent that it became impossible for the eon-stable to arrest him, when the whole town rose en masse and helped to put the oflfender in jail. The place is popularly known as " Hardscrabble," and when John T. Norris, a detective ot Snringfield, O , from whom the Cincinnati C^azt^e gets the facts, intiuired the reason, he was told by an inhabitant it was because it was such a hard fecrab-ble for runaway couples to get there before the parents caught up." iBree otfierplaces, often in the open air, with the thermometer twenty-five degrees below zero, and it is estimated that there have been not less than 1,000 conveisions.

A "blizzard" is described by the Cheyenne Leader as follows; There was a blizzard abioad in Cheyenne yesterday. There is no clearly-stated definition of the word " blizzard," as it is not found in the dictionaries. It is purely Western invention. Blizzards came out since the dictionaries wore built. But then a blizzard is an unspeakably mean thing. Oh, it is so mean! No ono ever thinks of a blizzard without apolo. gizing mentally tor touching upon so base a subject. What the cayote is to the hunter, the freighter, the cowboy and the miner, he blizzard is to the average citizen. The blizzard ranks about as high in meteorology aa does the skunk in zoology. And then a blizzard is the only thing known to history or Si^nce tQat will blow thirteen wavs at once. It doseribes a course precisely like a Scotch plaid. You turn from a direct line —to the lee way—of the fierce wind in order to ct>tcti a gobd square breath, and the blizzard Is there too. It catchM 'Tïfm- N. Y.

They climbed the mountains to tiie leit of the stream and separated, taking opposite sides of the ridge, iu the hopes of bagging a deer. Whitman came down the Rattlesnake side, and, soon after separating from his companion, he slipped and fell, sliding some 200 feet down the mountain side. He vainly endeavored to stop himselt by digging into the snow with hands and feet and clutching at brush and saplings, till just as he was> about to be precipitated over the clift into the Riitt lesnaice, some forty feet below, he fortunately clasped a strong sapling with one hand, and was left dangling in the air over a preoipic3. By astrong effort he managed to clasp the saplina with his arm in the elbow, and grasping his wrist with the disengaged hand, awaited his inevitable fall with desperation. The hound, seeing his master fall, followed him to the edge of the cliff, and whined piteously at the predicament of his human triendi Suddenly he dashed off over the hill like, a deor. and disappeared.

They will surely contract disease, and a sick shoip is about ai mean « thing as we know of, not excepting a sick chicken. Ashes are, for many soils, a standard fertilizer. Places where ii tree or brush-heap has been burned often show the effects of the manuring for many years. It is an old saying, " The land never forgets ashos." Experiments have proved that wooden posts put in the ground in the same position in which they grow, top upward will become rotten several years sooner than they would if placed top downward in the soil A French writer recommends a novel mode of enriching and promoting the growth especially of geraniums. Namely: watering the plants with a solution of 150 grains of glue in about two gallons of water. One great object in feeding animals should be to onrich the land, hence it becomes of the greatest importance to know what food can bo produced that will iiy ure the l.<ind in tho l«ast, and en-rish the manure heap the most.

To make such lauds serviceable for sheep culture would be a vast advantage and economy In ttiat part of England where the Romney-Mar^ sheep are kept the marshes are ditched, and even diked, to keep out the tide water; and on these exposed lands these hardy sheep'feed in summer and winter. Some of these pastures are so luxuriant as to carry fourteen sheep to the acre.

Mace^s wonder* ful expertness in the ase of his hands came up, and some one offered to bet a less a professional, could get in a blow on Mace*8 face.

There is an old Bible in the Con-grfssional library at Washington supposed to have been written in the thir-eea'tu or fourteenth century, but tbo actual date is unknown. It is written in Liitin, upon vellum, in clear, bold characters, and extremely uniform. The writing is in two columns, about three inches wide,. with a margin of tvvo inehes. It is embellished with 146 miniature paintirigs and upward of 1,200 smaller illuminE-lions, which are beautifuHy executed, and are as brilliant to-day as tbe day they were done. The initials of books and prologues are two and a half inches in height, and those of the chapters are one inch in height. It is contained in two largo volumes, and cost tho government §3,200 in gold when gold was at a high premium, and was purchased at a sale of the libra.'y of Henry Perkins, Harworth park, near London, in Juno, 1873. The s^s in the first volume have ell been repaired, and, except five in tho second volume, they are nearly all perfect.

The Kaffirs hold the doctrine of the transmigration of souls, and pay the spirits of their relatives tho doubtful compliment of believing that they have special affinity for^nak's and serpents, ëo, when some venomous reptile takes up its quarters with a famiiy, in placo of killing it, they abandon the hUt to Its use. Dr. Norbury tells a story of a missionary who came near to paying with his life for the delicate consideration ol his flock. While officiating at a com-mUnion-table he fancied he heard a hissing sound. Bringing the services prematurely to a ck se, he pseped below the cloth, and saw one of the most poisonous snakes in South Africa. His parishioners had had their eyes upon it all the time, hut liad declined to say anything from motives of delicacy. They thought the snake mmt bea relative of their clergyman, and would not interfere in a family affair. . . "What is your name?''asked a Galveston Sunday-school teacher of a new boy.
