When the Man had aged from the underground dwelling he to the old word Cutter How. To use. The land when he told him he thanked him turned Home but let him make Wiit u he did it until 12 of at night. A. V Jere in tho world have you been All this 1\ said his wife,1 is he oxime in a Ive i sitting bore and waiting hour of had nut As much As a epoch other under the Gruel a Cook Christmas / 1 a do a replied the Man a i could not Home ter for i had some business to mind. And i obliged to go a Long Way Aboin to it Bat Shuli see what i have brought with of then placed the Mill on the table and a it grind first of All candles then a in cloth then food and by Era in Short All i was wanting for a Christmas feast and Stover he called for the Mill ground it in a moly. Ilia wife stood by and crossed Elf many1 times Over and was very tax to know How her husband had come by a poll. But this to took care not to Tell a it matters hot How. I got it wife a a Aid he i see it a a Good Mill whose water Toeaso to flow and that a enough its quire. Do afr i Ion. Nii Arr l .1 Sii fat org and then eatables and drinkable and every possible Dainty for Chris tons week and on the third Day he invited his friends to a banquet. When his Rich brother saw what a feast was in preparation to turned hot and cold with vexation for he grudge his brother on Christmas eve said lie to the other guests he was so miserably poor he cams to ask me. For in gods name and a now All of a sudden he is As grand As if he had become an Earl or a King then. Turning to his brother lie said a whore on a Earth i l you. Get All these riches of a a r a behind the door answered the other who had no. Mind to let the oat out of the bag. evening w uen he had taken a drop too much he could not keep his counsel any longer but brought out his Mill. A Here is the Golden Goose that has brought me All my riches said he and made the Mill one thing and then another. On seeing this the brother wanted to buy the Mill of him but the other would not hear of it at first. , however As his brother seemed to wish for it so very mob he said he would take Throe Hundred Poun for it Only he bargained not to part with it till Harvest time for said he 1 if i keep it till then i shall to grind enough for Many to year to it. During this space of time we May a Cailjr imagine that the Mill a. Not allowed to grow Rusty and when Harvest time came the brother and it Given him Only the taken Good care not to Tell him Bow he was to manage it. A it was evening when the Rich brother Brough t the Mill Homo and on tho following morning to told his wife that she might go into the Field with the reapers and that he would meanwhile prepare the dinner. Towards mid Day therefore he a placed the Mill on the Kitchen table. Grind away said he and let us have some Herrings and a mess of milk1 of the Best sort a so the Mill began to turn out Herrings and milk till All the. Dishes and. Pots and pans were filled and at last tho Kitchen was completely flooded. The Man kept trying to Stop tho Mill do what he would the Mill did not cease grinding and at length tho milk had Arisen so High that he was in danger of being drowned. To now Tore open the Chain her door but it was likewise inundated and it was with difficulty that he could Wade through the Milky tide and manage to unfasten the Latch of tho House door. No sooner had he opened the door than. Out he rushed still pursued by a torrent of milk and Herrings. And on he ran till he reached his brother s and then he entreated his poor relation for gods Sake to take his Mill Back for if it goes on Grin Ding for another hour said he the whole Village will be inundated with Herrings and but the brother refused to take Back his Mill unless the other counted him out three Hundred pounds More and As there was no help for it the Rich Man was Fain to him tho Money. So now that the poor brother had Money As Well As the Mill he built a House that was far ban Somor than the Ono his Rich brother lived in. Wit i to help of the Mill he collected so much Gold Tomt Lio would cover the Walls with plates of Gold and his House stood near the sea Shore it could to seen shining from a great distance at sea. All who sailed near the coast were sure to Anchor in the neighbourhood and a visit to the Rich Man in the Golden House in order to see the wonderful Mill. Ono Day a Captain who like so Many others had come to see the Mill inquired after looking at it whether it could grind Salt a a yes it can grind Salt As Well As anything 8aid the Man. R a the Captain then wanted to buy it at any Price a for thought he a a 1 had this1 Mill i should not to obliged to sail so far Over the rough seas to fetch Salt. A at first the Nain would not hear of Selling it but the Captain teased so Long that lie consented to part with it for Many thousand pounds. Aah the Captain had obtained the Mill he took care not to remain in the neighbourhood for fear the Hian should repent of his bargain so without even stopping to inquire h of he was to Man Ftfe a tie Mill he went Back to his ship and sailed away. On reaching the main sea he took out his Mill and cried a grind Salt and let it be prime Stuffle and the Mill began to grind Salt till it split and Oraeed again when the captains found his ship tvs full to tried to Stop the Mill but in spite of All his endeavours tho Mill went on grinding and the Heap of Salt grew higher till it finished by sinking the ship. So now the Mill stands at the Bottom of the Ocean and keeps grinding on at this very Day which is the reason that sea water is Salt. Mamje or an ideas a a a Penny for your thoughts a says the old saw Abd the valuation was doubtless full compensation for those that occupy some menus minds. But thoughts Are Worth More than a Penny now a Days and the ideas which Are suggested by thought represent millions. The Man who got the idea of a clothes wringer made Money Wilson of the. Sowing machine which bears his name Horace Thayer who who makes the blacking boxes with wooden Bottoms the inventor of the swinging Cigar lighter which we see in every store All these can Bear testimony to the value of ideas As connected with articles in daily use relating to tho improvement or entire by percussion of them by better ones. No one should be deterred from putting his ideas into Somo tangible shape from the supposition that the Field of investigation has been exhausted. A a my sons a said a dying Farmer a a there is a treasure hidden in our Fields set to and dig for thereafter they dug but found no Gold. Instead upon the year ensuing the Fields that had been so thoroughly Pho lived returned a thousand fold the seed that had been sown. A it is with ideas thought Breeds Thorn and from them May Spring the one Golden Boans which All men seek. Some menus ideas run upon perpetual motion these Are Idle dreamers seeking to accomplish what the Laws of nature forbid but others. More practical turn their attention to tho arts to the Soi Ericos and to real Progress. These Are Thoj who shall win rewards not Pence but pounds not shillings but dollars attest in hundreds of instances the value of an idea As applied to improvements in the ameril the hat was passed around a certain congregation for the purpose of taking up a Roll motion. After it had made the. Or out of the of Huron it was handed to the minister who by the Way had exchanged pulpits with the regular preacher and he found not a Penny in it. He inverted the hot Over tho pulpit Cushion and Shook it that its emptiness might be known then raising Bis eyes towards the Groat Fervour a thank god that i got Back my Bat from this congregation. Dow tub English working people Tvr. Nothing can to More surprising to the american people than the Estremo Indi Gnoy and physical degeneracy of the British working people. Or. Knyz a. Work on the social condition and education of tho people in England a published last year in England and reprinted in this country made some remarkable disclosures bearing especially upon the moral condition of these people at the close of his work or. Icay says a the poor of England Are mtg be depressed More pauper Zed More numerous in comparison to the other classes More irreligious and much worse educated than the poor of any other Europe an nations solely excepting Russia Turkey South Italy Portugal and in edit Cal officer of the privy Council in England is required to submit annually a report of the proceedings of that body. This duty Jas do Voloyed. Upon mtr. John Simon whose Serios of reports for the lost four years is a harmonized body of practical information on the causes and distribution of last report for 1864, is full of interest ing and important truth respecting. The. Amount and kind of food taken by tho work ing classes Las or. Kay a Book related to the causes leading to moral degeneracy this report is co Pernod chiefly with those which Conduce to physical deterioration. For the purposes of a investigation inquiry was made only1 in a few households which. Seemed to be fair samples of their class. The inquirer set out with this theory namely that to present starvation or the diseases connected with it a woman must have in her food daily thru a thousand nine Hundred grains of ear Hon and one Hundred and eighty of nitrogen or As much nourishment As is contained in a half Quarter loaf of bread. A ni9u wants one ninth More. Forty two families of silk weavers were examined and it was found that these did not quite come up to this minimum Standard thirty one families of Needle women fell far Short of farm labourer so families More than one third were below the Mark. Of course this sacrifice of appetite would he made after Overy other sort of sacrifice had been made after necessary clothing and fuel had been dispensed with it was found among silk weavers and twisters that while Oyer twelve pounds of bread were necessary to each adult Little More than Niht we re eaten. By buying food in Pennyworth a Gre it do al of Money was wasted. Tie children working away from Homo instead of taking with them dinner prepared by tho Mother Are supplied with Throe Halfpence or twopence a Day dinner Money which they spend at a Cook shop usually a Penny upon Piid Diug and a half Penny upon potatoes. When they spend to opened they Are permitted to sit Down and have a Little Gravy or fat added to their meal. Of All classes tho Needle women Faro the worst. They take to their calling when every other resource fails and their average income is below four shillings less than one Dollar per when sometimes too they Are out of employment. They use a Little Over Aii ounce of Tea per Day into which they meat Somow of cuyp two some Tang left undone. I i a 1 Henry a. Longfellow labor with what Zeal to Willie.

Glove stitchers in order to earn five shillings and sixpence a week Are compelled to work from six in the morning until eleven at night and even children Between nine and fourteen years of ago Are kept All Day at this employment. 1 a As a general result of the inquiry among All these classes it appeared that of bread the Needle women ate least tie Shoemakers most that of the persons interrogated in All classes Only four three of them being kid glovers went wholly without sugar tho kid glovers generally tufting least sugar tie Needle women and stocking makers test tho balance of Carbon in tho diet being readjusted in these cases by an exactly reverse proportion in the use butter. Only in five of the whole number of cases was there no meat at All a ten and the five were All found among the silk weavers of Macclesfield and Coventry but Twenty in every Hundred ate butchers meat in no appreciable Quantity preferring to use Bacon Beer of the Ordinary strength was found to be drunk generally by the silk weavers of London and by the Shoemakers and s very weak Beer by. The stocking makers of parts of Derbyshire. In half the families who were taken As fair types of the condition of the poorer Labouring class be a formed no part of the household dietary. A a in the Case out door labourers where there is Faor to much meat used i Tisue Lcy by cd for the sundays dinner usually the Only Pho at which the whole family is collected arid1 sits together in unwonted ease. What Quot is left front the sunday dinner is on the following week Days the husbands and whether he rakes it with him bit Ity bit to Bis daily dinner in the Fields or eats it at Home it is his As a matter of course in grudge the household Faith is Quot that the. Husband wins tie bread and must have the. Best his physical Well being is the prop of the House. If he Hasey ton up his remainder of meat or Bacon by tho Middle of the week and there to butter or cheese he takes that for his dinner at tho close of the week and tho wife and children at Home Aro then reduced to dry Brand which is converted into a hot meal by the use of Tea. Of course this state of affairs is a great hindrance to marriage. A Man alone can subsist comfortably and the temptation to remain single is reluctantly overcome when by marrying he is certain to deprive himself of food absolutely necessary to health. The farm labourer apart Rbra a family is adequately fed Long lived and Little troubled Frith sickness. When he take3 Hie meals at the farm House Dies risk in the Way of diet is from Over feeding. He has usually four meals a Day meat and. Bacon a new. Twice and even three times a Day milk twice a Day a puddings or pies three times a Day in Devon and usually a daily elsewhere Beer eider1 or also in Yorkshire to is found to get1 cheese cakes and custards almost daily at breakfast and dinner or even to take an hours Nap after dinner.

Oct a danish writer Speaks of a hut so miserable that it did not know which Way to -fall,.and so. Kept standing. This is like a be had such a Coin plication of did not know what to Dio of and so lived on. On the night of the Battle of Brandywine i was sent with a message from Gen. Green to count Pulaski a Noble Polander who took a prominent part in our struggle for Freedom. He was quartered in a neat farm House near the upper forts after our business was finished the count asked me to take some refreshments and it the some time called out a Mary my lass in Ryle in an instant a Rose cheeked girl entered her face beaming with Jov it would soem at the very sound of Pulaski a voice. A did you Call to. Count said the Maiden timidly. A How often have i told via Little a love a he bending his tall form to Cheek a not to Call me count Call me dear Pulaski. This is a Republic my Little favorite we have no coi ints you know.�?T. But you Are a count sir when at Homo and they say Yon came a Long Way Over the Ocean to fight�?T. A a yes. Mary very True i did come a Long Way tho reason was i had to come /.now, can you get for this gentleman and myself a Little refreshment lie Jong Way to ride ,. A a certainly sir and she went out of the room Liko a fairy. A Fine pleasant girl said Pulaski a would that i had the wealth that i once had i would give her a portion that would Send half tho youth hereabouts after her Sweet on tho morning of tho 11th of september 1777, the British army advanced in full Force to Chadds Ford for tho purpose of crossing Brandywine Creek and bringing on an action with Washington. Sir William i Iowa drove Maxwell s division Senss the Creek by ten of clock it one of tho lower Fords. A the iie3sian general Knip Hauson with a. Ltd it a a a a Ftp a Vannood upon Uto Oriolt and uniting with lord Cornwallis who common ded the left Wing of the army crossed it the upper Ford of the River arid Creek. It so happened that during the conflict when carrying orders. I passed immediately in tho direction of Pulaski a quarters that i had visited tho night before. Suddenly a Sheet of Limo burst Forth the House was on near the door Stens Lay the body of Mary her head Cut open by a satire and her brains oozing out of the terrible wound. I had been there but half n minute when general Pulaski at the head of a Oay nary galloped rapidly to tho House. Never shall i forget tho expression of his face As he shouted like a Demon of seeing the inanimate form of Marya a. A who did this.?�?T a Little boy who had not been before noticed lying on the grass with his leg dreadfully mangled replied a. A there they go in lie pointed to a company of Ilos sians some distance off. A right wheel men charge a and they did ohm go. I to not think that one Mon. Of the hessian corps Ever left the Field except to be pinned in the grave. The last of Pulaski was on the Battle ground of Brandywine. He and his Sweet Mary fell on the same Field. Serpent fascination. Business led me to Cross tho Chilhowie Mountain in Tennessee on the 27tli of Juno 1857. When near Mon Todle Springs two Birds were noticed at a couple of rods distance from tho Road which Wero acting in a manner new and Strango to to. They Wero in an open Spineo near the stump of a fallen tree but did not take flight at my approach As under Ordinary circumstances they would have Dono. On reaching a Point opposite to them it was noticed that they were tho Brown mocking Bird or Thrush and that a very Large Black Snake Lay coiled at the undo of Tiro stump of being to it suddenly began to uncool self and move off As if to make its escape tho Birds at the Samo Timo Paul in a a moment in their movements. But before it had str Otohei itself to More than half its length they were again in motion and flow at it in the most energetic Vanlier. Instantly tho Snake once More whirled itself into Coil in its former position. Tho male Bird then commenced to run and skip with great activity in a Somi Circle the Serpent being the Centre and gun dually closed in until within a foot or two of its c0��9, when with a sudden Dart Forward the Bird thrust its head toward that of the Snake and in the same instant threw itself backward alighting on. The ground it the distance of about ten. Feet. Before the male had closed its feat the female had commenced a similar set of actions. All the movements of the Birds were made with extended wings As if ready to Fly in a Momient. By the Timo tho female had thrown itself Back from tho Snake the male was in position again repeating the Samo movement As at first. In the me time Ray horse had married me Somo four or five rods into a Thicket of hush whither my hand bad guided him and where i dismounted and secured him. All this took place in a minute or two and As Only an indistinct View had been gained of the notion of the Birds in passing a favourable position for observation was taken so that All that occurred could be noted. The first movement of the male Bird in thrusting ii head Forward in close Contact with the Snake impressed me with the conviction that a Case of the so called fascination was enact jog Boorn me and i determined to observe it in a philosophical manner. Was half past one of clock p. M. The hird8lwore still eager at work when i turned my eve upon them after the interruption of a Fil Ching my horse. They were panting As if greatly fatigued by Long exertion but manifested not the least disposition to remit their efforts. If not fascinated they wore at least so earnestly Eolis cd a the affair on hand As to thing else around them. The Snake Lay in its Coil with head erect and thrown Back so As to to in the Host st. Padl. We have no very trustworthy sources of information As to the personal App Tearance of st. Paul. Those which to have Are the Early pictures and mosaics described by mrs. Jameson and passages from Mali Las Nice Phat rus Atid the apocryphal Ada Pauli cd the concerning which see also Cony Bare and Lowson i 197.lioy All agree in ascribing to tho apostle n Short stature a Long face with High forehead an aquiline nose close and prominent eyebrows. Other characteristics mentioned Are baldness Gray eyes a Clear complexion and a winning expression. Of his temperament and character st. Paul is himself the Best Painter. His speeches and letters convey to us As to read them the truest impressions of those qualities which helped to make him tho Groat apostle. To perceive the warmth and or Dor of his nature his deeply affectionate disposition the tenderness of his senso of Honor tho Courtesy and personal dignity of his bearing his perfect fearlessness his heroic endurance we perceive the rare Camhi nation of. Subtlety Tonicity and versatility in his intellect we perceive also a practical Wisdom which to should have associated with a cooler temperament and a tolerance which is Seldom United with such Init Tum convictions. And tho Principio which harmonized All these endowments and directed them to n tract boat end was beyond dispute a knowledge of Jesus Christ in the divine personal allegiance to Christ As to a living master with a growing insight into the relation of Christ to each Man and t o the world married the apostle Forward on a straight course through every viols Studo of personal fortunes and amidst tho various habits of thought which he had to encounter. Ti10 Sony action that he and been entrusted with a gospel concerning p lord and deliverer of a fen was what sustained and purified his love for his own people while it created in him such n love for Mankind that he Only knew himself As tho servant of others for Christ a Sake. A Renigar Pablo attempt has recently been made by professor Jewett in his commentary on Somo of the epistles to qualify what he considers to be tho Blind and Undis Crimi rating admiration of st. Paul by representing him As having been with nil his of Xci a Lenckos a Man a a Whoso appearance and discourse made an impression of feebleness a Quot out of Harmony with life and nature a a confused thicker uttering himself a in broken words and hesitating forms , with no Beauty or comeliness of nod so undecided in jigs Christian belief that to was preaching in the fourteenth year after his conversion a gospel concerning Christ which to himself in four years Moro confessed to have been carnal.

Possible position to strike and seizo the Birds Oft v however professor Jowett stands As they advanced. The Many convolutions by most alone. The result of the freest As of Romance of a tale of crime and misery a about four years ago a Young girl Surpas singly Beautiful and very wrist Horatio in her Carriage was arrested by the police and brought before a judge in this City on a charge of picking pockets. When before the court the girl who Carat to the bar weeping piteously for a hearing her Beautiful Black eyes red with Teirra and her form trembling gave her name As Adeladio Irvin. She said she was tool in the hands of her , who had taught her the profession and compelled her to. Go. Omit picking pockets. Her apparent Artles Ness of Demeanour arid simplicity together with her youth and Beauty induced tho magistrate to suspend sentence. But a few months elapsed however before Adelaide As pretty As in Days of Yore was caught again plying her Trade and pleading guilty was sentenced by the court to six months imprisonment in the Penitentiary. Here she managed by her great Beauty and fascinating manner to ensnare tho relative of her sailors who at the expiration of her term of service married her. The innate evil in Adelaide a nature was however too Strong to be suppressed. She abandoned her husband and plunged to the neck in the Whirlpool of vice and licentiousness. She was two weeks ago apprehended picking a pocket on a Steamboat. On her arrival at the City prison loathsome disease broke out upon her rendering her Blind she however refused to allow the physician to Soo her and thereby induced the belief that 6he was shaming. One morning Blind and tottering with the Halo of her Beauty still surrounding her she was brought into the court of general sessions and at the ago of Nineteen sore and Deore pid without a soul to wish her god1 Speed or drop a tear of sympathy with her she was sentenced As an incorrigible thief to the. State prison for two years. Verily the Way of the transgressor is hard.

Folks. Of its lengthened body moved in Graceful curves As its glittering head followed their notions. Its eyes sparkled in the sunlight like the polished Diamond Whilo its movements gave to its Ever shifting tho Brilliant hues of tho Rainbow. Again and again no tie Birds approached it would strike it them with opt of Mouth exhibiting a Malignity of disposition that portended death to Thorn had they been seized in its jaws. I a few minutes sufficed to show that a Battle and not a scene of fascination was presented before to. The Birds it each approach struck the Snake with their beaks or with when generally but not always it Cartel Forward at them Only to find that it was aiming it a movable target. This can exp lined. Tho Snake in striking could never project itself More that about two to girds of its length but its defense was made with determined courage. Its position by the stump protected it in the rear so that the Birds could Only approach it in the front. They were As adroit in their attacks As it was Resolute in its defense. In attempting to seize them it could not curve to either Sido after starting Boas to follow their motions but invariably shot Forward in n straight Lino to tho Point they occupied when it Mado its Spring. Tho Birds in advancing to the attack by a circular movement were certain of being away from the spot at which it aimed and when its Teeth smacked together where it expected its prey it had nothing in its grasp. A the warfare lasted after i reached the spot about Twenty five minutes by tho watch. Once or twice during tho contest the reptile made a movement to escape up the Hillside Bat tho Birds is it its first attempt immediately brought it into position again. Quot at last seeming to despair of Success in securing a dinner in that locality it darted off Down the Hill toward a Grove of Trees and Bushes not turning to tho right or left. The Birds swept after it pecking scratching and striking it with their wings As if inspired with tho consciousness that Victory was theirs. At this Momont i rushed Forward and after Somo difficulty killed the Snake and Cut it open. There was not a particle of food from one end to the other of tho intestinal canal. It must therefore have been hungry and if it possessed the faculty of charming it would undoubtedly have employed its Powers on such a delicacy As these the dissection of the Snake was finished tho Birds Wero not to by seen. It was tho season when their Young were in the neat and doubtless the conflict which had just terminated had been waged for the Protection of their offspring. Less Active Birds venturing As close As they did to their enemy must have been captured. Remaining most of the summer in the mountains of North Carolina frequent opportunities were afforded of inquiring of Hunters and others what they know about charmed by beep cats. All believed in tho theory of fascination and several and witnessed encounters Euch As i have described but none had Ever seen the Snake seize the Bird. They had looked on until the Bird is they supposed was attempting to thrust its head ondes the influence of the Charm into the serpents Mouth when they had rushed Forward and killed the Serpent to save tho Bird from destruction. In All the inquiries Nike no instance has been related where there was any More evidence of fascination than in the one observed by myself. In All cases however there was a singular uniformity in the descriptions of the manner in which the Birds fluttered around the snakes. So nearly did their accounts correspond with what i had a witnessed that i was convinced of tho truthfulness of their monthly. Quot the most reverent of the numerous recent studies of st.
