Lars in All Kintu of building lumber holdings brackets to exc still by depots end of London where the six Steps Are made in the and in a Peculiar still manner 1 i should be sorry to see a return to this style of dancing As i consider the present Waltz movement Capa ble of greater Freedom and vivacity besides being More easily Learnt i was once on asking a crusty old Bachelor to Waltz met with this reply id As soon take an emetic Stow giddiness was one of the great evils produced by the old Wall the action of making the Steps in so Small a Sec mently turning so frequently caused a greater tendency to Diness than is Felt in the style i dancing i consider from experience that Tho actual move ment of the modern Waltz cannot be described but must be seen and performed to appreciated the cause of there being so Tew Good Pauzers May be attributed first to the fact that the step Lias been altered from the slow and state by Waltz o thirty years ago by dancers themselves ignoring the rules of stance who have thereby acquired a step of their own which we frequently hear spoken or or miss so and sos step secondly that Many carpenters anti uni Luers will do to Call on us before

same faults with other circular dances but a moderately Good Dan cer Ca perform the polka schol Tischl Orr Down with any Quali fied person without difficulty another cause May be found in the excessive Speed at which the Waltzes Are now played possibly arising from the fact that Many Best composers of dance music con out of the window for his coming lie held the hand of Tho Little one who

3ime year above he and one Smith hired a horse did Wagon to go to the san Gamon River four Miles Distant at night Smith returned but not with Martin when asked where Martin was he said he did not know Martin was soon the ground where they went was the plainest evidence was presented that they had quarrelled the ground was Tram pled on Tho River Bank Aud some of Martins clothes were found it was also discovered that some drops of blood were dried on the amid and that the buggy had been in Iii into the water the sup position was that Manin had been murdered Aud his body carried in to the River search was made for Days but no body could to found meantime Smith the assumed murderer was arrested and put in to the old log jail Lna few weeks the prisoner was regularly arraigned in the circuit court on the charge of murder Abraham Lincoln then rising into time As a lawyer was engaged for the defence the production of the body was not insisted upon the evidence seemed As Cicur and conclusive As though a dozen persons had seen the act of murder the witnesses were few yet Tho evidence that 1 hero was both the motive and the Means was overwhelm ing the Marks of the struggle on the River drops of dried blood on the driving of the Wagon into the River As if to throw the body into the Swift cur rent were circumstances that could Only be accounted for in connection with Tho deep diminution of die taking Oil of poor Martin the de Fence could hardly make a ai10w of evidence and a verdict of guilty seemed a foregone conclusion meantime the Sheri of Tazewell county had read in the Sangamon journal a description of Martins person and heard that an Sueane Man had appeared in a Distant part of the country without coat or hat j and who could give no intelligent us court of himself an inspiration prompted the sheriff to go and see him and he became satisfied that lie was the missing Man having in his Possession still a consider Able amount of metropolitan Bank Money made trios Herfter morally sure on the Point so he took the Man in charge and started with him for Springfield arriving there 011 thelast Day of the trial he lodged the Man in the jail and went into the court room Aud saw or Lin Coln or Liu Colu asked a sus Peu proceedings As he Hail a important witness to introduce Vich the sheriff he vet to Tho old jail saw the prisoner and was satisfied that the dead was alive returning to court Ler Lincoln said he could not look for anything but a verdict against his client As the Case stood but he asked per Mission to put a now and very material witness on the stand the murdered Mau was placed upon the stand Aud the Case fell to tha ground in a effects of a Short Sleigle ride by Joseph Aiden d d it had been a cold Winters Clay John Fisher remained in the school room after school was dismissed and the teacher and All Tho pupils had gone Home he eat before the huge fireplace where Lay a Large bed of coals he gazed steadily upon them and seemed lost in thought the night came on it was too dark for one to read when he Rose to leave the room what had he been thinking about As he sat in that silent room before those dying embers Many a bitter thought parsed through his mind life was an orphant his father died when to was an infant his Mother struggled to support her child but when he was seven years old she Sank under her labors and died of consumption John was sent to the poor House where he received such treatment not infrequently meted out to the friendless a Heidi he was in years old a Farmer took him from the poor i House and engaged to give him a i certain amount of schooling and a new suit of clothes when he be came of age John was to serve him for that time without further compensation thus John had a Home what kind of a Home was j it will Tell you i shall not in so doing present a very pleasant j picture but it May Lead the Reader j to prize his own Happy Home More i highly and be More thankful to i god for it or Ridgway was the owner of a very rough and by no Means Fertile farm from which he managed to get a scanty living for himself and family he lived in a log House which admitted the rain in sum Mer and the Snow in Winter he took John from the poor House be cause he thought it would be cheaper than to hire a boy he was a hard master he never had a smile or a kind encouraging word for the orphan he was compelled to work beyond his strength and when his health failed lie was treated More harshly by Way of punishment theft Odgis in him was of the poorest Quality he was kept at work from Sunrise to dark lie was not permitted to fit by the fireside with the family Jle must slay out of doors or go to bed in the Garret As soon As the work of the Day was Over the Only Comfort he had was during Tho few weeks Iii Winter when he attended school he had nil Irti be Inilla Ilik in mod Nick by Jio was never allowed to play with the boys but was required to go directly to the school House and to come As directly Back up sir rid ways when the school was not dismissed at the Suat hour to was scolded and punished for not getting Home sooner he Hud been at school three win ters and Learned More than Many learn in three years besides he had acquired a desire for knowl Edge such As few Ever feel he began to feel that his life was in tolerable the sense of the oppression and cruelty with which he was treated grew upon him he had faithfully served or Iling Way he had obeyed him As far As his strength would allow lie had never manifested my temper when he was abused though he had often wept Over it in secret one Day Charley Hall a youth of about Twenty who had made Ono voyage at sea and was about to make another saw Ridgway grossly abuse poor John Charley was regarded As the worst boy in the place it was Felt to be a re Lief when he went to sea bad As he was he had some human sympathies left he took Johns part offered to help hog his oppressor this caused Ridgway to attack him but Charley had Learned the Art of boxing and soon Laid his assailant prostrate and did not per Mit him to Rise till he had owned himself whipped and promised to treat John better in future it was time for John to go to Ridgway told him he could not go Charley told him to let him so he did so John saw what was in store for him it is not strange hat for the first time in his life he stopped after school was dismissed he was considering what to do to was a friendless outcast 2sone had show him any sympathy except the wicked Sailor lie had never Boon taught to look to god for sympathy and help the concur Sion he came to was that he would no return to his cruel master where to pro and what to do he knew not As he left he schoolhouse a Sleigh was passing in the direction opposite to or rid ways he asked permission to ride Tho far Mer or Gringer readily granted his request you Are not going far such a night As this without a great coat said Tho Farmer 1 dont know How far i am go John where Are you going i dont know Are you not the boy that lives with Ridgway i have lived with him rather a hard Man i reckon Are you running away i am not going to that place again he pulling up the reins and stopping his horses let us know something about this be fore i take you further but it is too cold to keep you Here ill take Yon Home with me and see what i can make of you so saying he drove on he soon reached his comfortable Large Stonehouse he made John go in and take a seat by the Kitchen fire while lie himself took care of the horses after supper such a one As John had never sat Down to the Farmer began to question and Cross question him As to his Mode of life at or rid ways As he related some of the hardships he had endure the Farmer pretended to rub his forehead while in Reali Ity he was taking the moisture out of the Corner of his eyes with his Little Finger would you like to live with me said the Farmer i guess should said Jolt in a tone expressive of very intense affirmation Well i will go and see ring Way tomorrow he saw Ridgway and presented such arguments As induced him to consent to release disclaim for Johns services the next Day John was at school a new warm suit of clothes arid with a face which one of the boys said Loo Kedas though twas made Over again he soon became one of the Best schola Sinthe school every moment out of school was to matters connected with the farm it was remarked that or Gran Fer would not lose anything by his kindness to John of course he did not lose any thing no one Ever lost any thing by a kind act another said i wonder what object Granger had in View in Tak ing that boy off from rid ways hands Ridgway was glad to get rid of him but to made Granger pay a round sum for the boy or Granger had no other object than to make an unhappy orphan Happy he knew that it was a reasonable object and one that he could afford to spend Money in securing great events often follow apparently slight causes the whole course of Johns life was changed by his happening to get into or grangers Side preservation of Fence posts any kind of Timber when employed for be More than twice As durable if allowed to become thoroughly seasoned before being set in the ground the Dur ability of seasoned posts May be promoted so As to make them last an age by the application of a heavy coat of co altar to the portion buried in the Earth and a Lew inches above the surface of the ground some Farmers set the grounded in hot tar and let it boil fifteen minutes when Cool cover with co altar thickened with ground Salt or ground Brick the boiling stiffens the alb me and causes the pores to absorb tar the coating prevents the action of moisture but this treatment of Green posts would do an per haps mischief a boiling in Lime water is also beneficial Timber that is first waterlogged and then Well dried lasts Well because the water soaks out the acid that Hast ens the decay others contend that the better Way is to season the Post Well before setting it and when the porthole is filled within ten inches of the surface of the ground to apply a heavy coat of tar and fill up with As Fence posts always decay first near the surface of the ground it is Only necessary to protect the Post a few inches above the surface and about a foot below it the Timber begins to decay usual Lyon the surface of the posts therefore if the surface can be protected by some Antiseptic material posts will last a lifetime Many kinds of Tim Ber will not last five years if set in the ground Tinq Lurer Anil u Wilder thick planting f k Elliott inthe Southern Horticulturist states his method of thick planting of fruit Trees i have a plot of seven Hundred Trees standing say five by seven feet when planted they were Cut Down and have been grown More As Bushes than Trees being branched within a foot of the ground they have been worked with plow and cultivator until the branches became too close for passing of the horse or the handles of the plow without risk or injury and then the whole ground was mulched with coarse refuse bog grass they have More than paid for them selves and interest at fifty per cent and will do to keep in the same situation several years More when 1 propose to Shear in every other tree and form it anew the advantage i count upon from this close planting is that the Trees protect Oue another from the Sun and wind then should i choose to dig or Cut out every other tree at any time it has More than paid for itself while the labor of cultivation has been no greater than would have Boon Tho same amount of
