Uio Tuppy’s Story. “Wliat aiu 1 iiere uiuler the bara /or, anil what am I erring about?” Well, 1 guess if youVl suffered what I have, Master Johuny, you^d crawl uuder the barn aud cry. I’ve beeu abiise<l, that’s what I have! “WhsittWd 1 do?” Nothing to oe whipiwd for. 1 don’t even know what I was whiiipcd for. I didn’t do any harm, as 1 can sec. “What did I do, anyhow 7” ’Wei?. I just went into the hen-house, aud there was a box of hay there, and on the hay was a lot of the queerest looking things, round, white and smooth. I didn’t know what they were, nor where tliey came from. I sinclled of them aud found they were hard, and I thought it would bo great fnii to roll them aroinul. So 1 rolled them about with my ausc aud paws, and finally one rolled out on the floor. I went to pick it un, and there was a ci’aek in it, 80 the juice ivas ninning out. I tasted of it, and found it was good, so I ate the whole of the thing, excepting the white part outside; that was too hard. Then I roiled the rest out on the door and ale them too. I was glad to find those things were good for something. 1 didn’t suppose they were of any use only to play witli. .l ust as I liad liuislicd eating the last-one, while the hard white parts lay there all around luo, master oaine in at the door. I looked up and wagged my tail as usual, aud what do you think ? He Ju.st took me by the collar, and picked up a stick, and tlien how' lie did whip me 1 I shall be sore for a week. I don’t kiiow’ what it was all for; I can only guess. And this is what I guess alwut it. I think he Avas angry Avith me bccau.se I didn’t eat the white parts, too, instead of Avasting them. I’m sorry I didn’t, but I thought I couldn’t; they Avere so hard and dry. JIoAV'cver, I’ll go in to-morrow and look for some more, and if I find any I’ll eat the Avholo, AvUitc ¡larts and all, if it kills me! Then I’m sure he will be plea-sed, and I shan’t have to lake anotlier whipping. Jiiiiuijr. .Timmy is a green and yellow parrot.

He can only sing one piece. That is “Little Toiiiiny Tucker.” This is the way he begins,* “doAvn—left—ready—up,” then “Lit-tle Tom-niy Tuck-cr.” Jimmy has not a very plea.saut v oice, but then he sings very well for a parrot. When il k'gins to grow dark toward ev'ening, .linnny thinks some one ought U> come and put him to bed. So he begins calling out very loud, “Jimmy go to be<l ? Jimmy go to bed ?” very fast, until i>eople wish he would keep stjll and go to sleep. So some one goes to Jimmy’s cage and takes his little cmbroi(Jere<l blanket and covei-s bis ca^ all over with it, so that tlic light will not shine in. Then JimniT sayit, “(iooil-night, love, goodnight,*’ tucks his head under his wing aud goe« to sles^p. in the morning he )>ulls the liftlo blanket off frein his cage by putting his beak through the bars. Tlien he is ready for his breakfast of toast and coffee. Little Ixinfrfcllow'H First Poem. W'licn our great poet, Ijongfellow, was nine years old, his master wanted him to write a comjiosition. Little Henry, like all children, shrank from tiie uudcrtuking. His master said: “You can write, ran you not?” “Yes,” was the reply. “Then you can put words together ?” “Yes, sir.” “’riien,” said the master, you may take your slate and go behind the schoolliousc, and there you can find Boinetliing to write about, and then you can tell Avhat it is, what it is uscil for, ami what is to be done with it, and that will be a comjiosition.” Henry took bis «late and went out. He went bidiiiid Mr. Finney’s barn, which chanced to be near, and seeing a fine turnip growipg up, he tliouglit he knew wliai Uiat was, what it was lor, and wl;at would be done with it. A half hour had been allowed to Henry for his ilivst undertaking in writing comiKisitionP. In half an hour he carried in his work, all accomplished, and the master is said to have been all'ectcd almost to tears when he saw whal little Henry had done in the ihort time: MR. FINXEY S TURXIP.

Itcontains a number of facts of great interest to many of our reader», and particu-lai ly to the hundreds of members of the Cuvier Club, of this city. It will be observed that one of the three Commiscioaers^ Is 'Col. Len. A. Harris, of this city, and’ Preskleutof the Cuvier. The following is the 8ubstauc.e of the report: To is Excellency, Charles Foster, Governor ol Ohio; The Ohio Fish Commission has the honor of submitting this, their sixth annual* report, showing the work of the Commisirion for the year 18S1, and part of the year 1882. It is not believed to be necessary to repeat the argument, contained in former reports to the Governors in the reports made by the Boards of Fish Commission to the Legisfatnres of thirty-two States, because it is concevted by all acquainted with the results obtained in fish culture, even the most ekepticaJ, that It is no longer a doubt-ftil question, but that the results have been of a most gratifying character, showing conclusively that the feaifnl diminution of food fishes has lasen arrested, and that a very perceptible and continuous Increase has been going on in all the lakes a<id streams stocked by Fish Commissions. The hatching houses have l»een greatly improved and put in perfect order, and will dejKJsit in Lake Erie from 40 to 45 millions of white fish, the greater portion of which have already been put in. Seventy-eight thousand young black bass were into the interior streams of the State. In five years, or oven sooner, the price bT white fish will be 50 jier cent, less than at present. One thousand young carp are at the Sandusky Ilatehery for distribution. There is a wide dilTerence of opinion as to the quality of the carp as a food fish, but the major number say that it is a.fair table fish. At all events ills the only fish that can be successfully eultivatetl by the farmer, and hence is a valuable addition to his food supply. For the first time in the history of the Comraisslou blq^-k bass have be<}n planted in considerable quantities in the inland waters of tiie State, but the supply has not been equal to the demand, or the necessity cau8<d by unlawful seinlng. We will, however, continue the work, trusting that an enlightened sentiment, together with Ill's practical demonstretion to increase the footl supply, will encourage tlie law-abiding citizens to prosecute the fish marauders. There seems to Ikj no accurate mode of obtaining relinidc fit>h statistics ot Ohio, but tha United States census of 1875) show s that more thau 21,000,000 pounds of white fish alone were taken from the great lakes, probably fur Ixilow the real number, and valued at over $75.),000. It is to be hoped th.it a way may be devised t» secure precisely accurate statistics on this subject in Ohio, so that the work of the Conuuissiou in promoting this valuable industry may be tho.'oiighly understood by the legislators of the State. From experiments already made and being made, it is the opinion of the Surerin-tendent that the eggs of the pickeral and jack salmon can be handled, fecundatwl aud batched with not much more difficulty than ^ hite tish eggs. If this it so,"it would be money well spdrt, because, insteaij of scouring the lake to stock the rivers, creeks and ponds of the State, it could be done directly from the hatchers, in great numbers atid ata coinpurntively light expense. Thus the inland waters would again be made to teem with gaine-food, fish. It is rot strictly within the province of the Fish Commissioner lo consider the protection of game, insectavorous aud song birds, but as it is a kindred subject, and a ver^ imi>ortant one, too, we do not deem it amiss U> ask for suitable protective legisla-tiou. The game birds are iinpoitant as a food supply; the insectivorous and song birds as insect dcrtroyers, 'File game marauders, not satisfied with killing game birds during the close season, uave uommeuced the destruction of insectivorous and song birds, whic h are protected at all times. Game dealers have been arrested for selling these birds In large quantities, but pleading that they were killed in anotlier btate escaped the penalty. That a suitulile legal remedy will be fouiid for this growing evil, before it is everlabLiiigly too late, is the aevout wish of all men wlio are familiar with the sad havoc already made by thouglitless and r.'ckless men upon the game of the community. I't is only through the game and fisli-pro-tectiou associations of the Stale that the laws now Existing will ever be cutorced; iieuce they should be encouraged, and consideration given to their suggestions con-ceriiiiig legislation. These societies may be organized to protect birds and tish, that the members may, in the open si-uson, shoot or angle for Ihcui, but, nevertheless, tliey enforce the law—the great disiderutuiii. However, let the motive of these orguuiza-iions be wh.it il may at the begimiing, the members soon beioine. from familiar and tiiouglitful consideration of the sul joct, the earnest protector of the birds and lUc fish, not tor uimisemeul only, but for the beiietii of Immanity. ^ Many newspapers in the State have greatly a d vl the Uonnnissiou by disseini-natJiig useful knowledge on the*subject of lish culture and the necessity for tlie observance of the laws. These widely circulated pap.TS reach a class of readers w ho, iu a very great measure, we must depend upou for the enforcement of the laws. L. A. Hakris, Chas. W. Bond, Halsey C.

(Council liluffa (Iowa) Nuupuricl.l The following interesting item has been eng.tged for some days in making the rounds of the press: “Kate Shell^’, tl»« young lady who saved a train frern plunging into an abyss near Boone, Iowa, from wliieh the bridge had been swept by the U»went, is about to marry tho conductor of the train wliich was rescued.” Kate Shelly was not sixteen years old at tlio time of her heroic deed, and probably is not Rt this time serionsiy contemplating marriage with anybody, much less any of tliejMjrsonsto whom newspaijcr scribblers are attacliing her as a bride. When tlic time does come for Ycntur-ing uix)n the matrimonial sea, there is a switchman in the yards at Moingona who was with her in the sickness following h«*r terrible adventure, who, although wearing the clothes of a laborer and carrying a liand crippled in the service of the railroad company, will probably put in the first and best claim, regardless of conductors. A new method of tempering steel has been published by M. Clemandot. The metals are heated to a cherry red and then compressed strongly until they arc cool.

Terrible Death Htrujgglea of m M*n Who Was Intf-rred Alive. [New York Star.] In the latter part af March a man named JamesQilliland, reaidtng iu theHixUi Ward of New Brunswick, N. J., died aRcr a brief illness. He was a carpet-w eaver by trade and was well known in tlw; neighborhood. Alter death bis huusu was visited by sympathizing friends, who were anxious to look once more on their departed comrade. There was a peculiar ap|>earancc about the body, which was the subject of comment, and ntany of the visitors refused to believe that life had departed. Even after the body    bad    been    prepared    for burial and    inclosed iu a cofiin, there waa non» of    the    ordinary    sp- pearancea found    In a corpse,    and Gilliland’s friends were greatly agitated over the matter, many of them believing that he was only In a trance. So strong was this oellef that physicians were called in to make an exuualnatlun. They found the body slightly warm and having none of the chilly fi^eling to the touch which is always found In dead iKxlíe»; the face waa somew hat flushed, aud the supposed dead man resembled a person in a deep sleep more tiran a mass of lU'eless clay. The doctors, however, after a critical examination, pronounced Gilliland dead, and the funeral look place the following day, the interment being in fli<‘ cemetery. I.ast w'et'k a brotlier of Gilliland cam(! to New Brunswick to make an examination, having h(»ard that tlierc were suspicions that the man was not dead when bnriid took place. He pr(K*e«‘ded to th(> cemetery yesterday in company with a man to ri'oiien the grave. M hen the c( ffin w as reached the lid was carefully removed, and, to the gre.it horror of tlu; inan, he discovered in-diihitable evidence that bis bi'otli«‘r had been eulonilH'd wliilc in a tralKH*, and bud afterward recovered cciiseiousncss. Tlie Itody was found lying on one side, with the faee terribly scrátehed, as though done while in agony. It is thought that tin; unfortunate man, on recovering conscioii'-ness, ciuh'avored to free himself froni Ins coflin, aud that a terrible struggle for life took place, the hands being horribly laecr-at(*d, while the fa(“e plainly showed signs of terror.

[Cuniining ( laríun.] In our boyhood we often beaixl of a hoop .snake, one that, bringing it« head and tail together, rolhnl over and over like a wagon wheel. It was said that this snake did its execution with its tail, that being pointed like a needle. Wc never had the terror of sec-ing one of tlvein, but did, when about eight yciirs old, see a jointed snake. Tlie joints were about six inches long. Wlien alannetftlie snake fell to pieces, the head joint darting oil’ like an arrow to a place of concealment. That was the last snake of the kind we over saw until quit© recently we saw a ho«[)-joint©d snake. We were walking leisurely one day through our field clo.se to an old fence which was near a small branch ami marshy svvanip. ’Bliiuking of no evil, hut rather iinaginiiig that on that piece of ground w c could make a hale of cotton to the acre, which w'ould hny twice as much corn a.s the land would make, all of a sndden we were startled out of ourself by something roiling by us which looketl like the rim of a buggy wheel without the spokes. When it had passed about ten steps beyond us, in making an effort to turn, it accidental!)^ struck the end of a projecting rail. This must have alarmed if, for all at once it fell to pieces, and the bcail joint darted through a crack of the fence and Into the swamp as quickly as possible. Rcmeml>cring the jointed snake of our boyhood, and that our grandfather had told us if we would watch we would see the head ref uni for the joints left, as badly as we were scared wc determined to watch and wait the head’s return. Not unmindful that w'e had been told by Ihcm of old time that the only jirotet;-tion from a hoop snake was to get behind a tree or stump on the opiKisite side from the one it w'as coming, wo took a iiosltiou lK‘hind an old stump and awaited developments. It was not long before the head came slowly and cautiously through the crack of the fence, rais(*d itself to an angle of t'orty-fi VC degrees,looked in every direction, and then commenced the work of rejoining its body aud tall to its head. This was soon done. Its next movement was to rear itself up perjiendic-iilarly, or, in other ward.»!, to stand on its tail. As the head went up wc distinctly .saw that each joint possessed India rnhlier qualities, for as it went up each joint became extended until, when the jieriieiidicular [Kisitioii was attained, the head was entirely out of sight. liy a mathematical calculation we ascertained it.s head to be a little less than five miles high, when it paH,s(>d out of sight. Having taken it.s liearing, it gradually eoiitracted to nine feet. It then made a circular dart for its tail, and without more ado rolled oft’ rapidly in the direction of Atlautu. of all the monarch» mein-tioned only Heorgc III. reached the ago of fonrsi'orc. I’oland had one king who lived to the age of eighty-eight, Stanislas Lcszczyuski; but he reigned only five years, and survived bis throne fifty-six years, living in quiet retirement. We must go back to the days of antiquity to find William I.’s royal peers in age, and the only ones we discover arc Hiero II., of Syracuse, and Masinissa, of Numidia, both of whom ended their reign at the age of about ninety. The reign of Ilainesses II., Pharaoh of Egv'pt—the Sesostris of tlie (íreeks—is believed by some Egyptologists to have lasted about sixty-seven year», aud his life about one hundred, but others reduce both his days and Ids reign to normal proportions. Tims no Emperor known SWAYNE'S OINTMENT. to history, no reigning King in Christendom, ever reached the age of William I. Our age boasta of this extra ordinary royal life, as it does of only Pontificate, that of Pious IX, which exceeded the term of ¿5L Peter.

[New Yor)t Evening Post.) Long reigns are rare in history, long royal lives much rarer stiíl. Prhices occupy one of the lowest levels in the whole range of longevity. The air of courts is destructive of health, nerve, and vigor. Uves which early corruption, luxurious and efi'eininat© habits, unchecked pa.ssions, and un-ciiRsing excitement do not undermine, are frequently shortened by consuming ambition or care, warlike toil aud peril, or tlio murderous hand of conspiracy. Among tho remarkably long reigns iu history are those of Uzziah of Judah (fifty-two years), Mithiidates ofPoutus (fifty-seven), Bapor II. of Persia (seventy-one), Alfonso I. of Portugal (seventy-three), Frederic III. of Germany (fifty-two), Christian IV. of Denmark (sixty), Louis XIV. of France (seventy-two), Georp 111. off England (fifty-nine), Ferdinand IV. of Naples (.sixty-five), and Pedro II, of Brazil (fifty-one till now). But Uzziah was a youth when he was placed on tho throne, Mithri-dates a boy, Bapor a new-born babe, Alfonso an infant, Christiau eleven years old, Ixiuis- four, Ferdinand nine, and Pcdru five; aud Tlie Emperor of Russia has given 20,000 ruble.s to the St. Petersburg (ieograpliical Society toward meeting the expem^i* of another polar station at Nova Zembla. The Fr»‘iich Government Is disposed k) foster the various svHtenis of the application of electricity to railroad purposes in order to obviate as fur a.s possible the dangers of travel. An eminent Arabian naturalist and physician of the tenth century named Temini states that in ancient tiine.F the bitumen of Jiidaa was used to preserve tho vino from tho ravages of para.sites. Roman railroads arc now to be under State control. They are to be administered by a Council, wIio.se decisions on all matters of iinimilane© will be subject to review by the Minister of Public Works.

It is stated that the Belgian Government is engaged upon a scheme for promoting street railways throughout the country as feeders for the railroads, the work to be done by the various eommuiies interested, either singly or in eombination, and assisted when necessary by subvcutioua from the State. MM. Muce de Lepiuay and Nicati wove some time sine© on a mountain lexcursion and spent some five hours among the snow.

He has now in the C<filcge of France more than 1.50 animals showing this kind of heredity. In a l)ook imblished by Bohn in Haarlem, 1842, and written by Herr Elias, there is a t<jlerably good dcscriii-tion of that portion of Uie electrical machines of Gramme and Pacinolti, and all their tvjie which is called the “ring.” The chief portion of the invention of Inith Gramme and Pacinotti had, therefore, been antieip&ted. Elias was born in Amsterdam, April 18, 1801. At the Royal Institution, TiOiidon, Mr. J. W. Bwan, of Newcastlc-on-Tyne, lectured lately on the electric light, giving a history of its discovery, but dealing chictly with that produced by incandescence. He tlnnight tliat the expense of inoaudesceiit electric lights would not compare unfavorably with that of ga.s, aud some works were being erected in this country which would settle the question of relative cost. Incandes<v?nt lamps could be made cheaply to last for 1,200 hours—it was not certain that the limit of durability bad yet bceu reached in their construction.

The giant wore a stove-pipe hat, an ulster, and Chinese slipiicrs that somewhat resembled a pair of Whitehall boala. The pair were driven to a boarding house in Ninth street^ where the giant reposed wearily in two clwiirs, and received Manager Starr of the Broadway Museum, while the little woman sat at a table and worked buttonholes iu the sleeve of a tremendous shirt.

Mrs. Lang then displayed her foot by removing an outer slipiier, revealing a second slip[ier of soft white kid, and an instep, seemingly bereft of toes, encased in a silken stocking, delightfully embroidered. Bhe talked at a great rate and very nuisieally in a eombination of Chinese and French, and laughed as though she would die when her husband tried liis hat on Manager Starr, who is not a laige man, and who disa[)[(cared in that article ot dress as far dow n as his elbows. Caiitain Goshen, the giant, who re-movcil fnnn Palestine to a farm in New Jersey, in order to be more convenient to the museum, has not yet st'cn the new giant, but says that he is inclim-d to be friendly to him.
