Willie, the Runaway. One moonlight night, when all the house was still, Willie Nichols rose softly from his bed. He dressed himself quietly that he might not disturb his sister, or his little brother Bennie, who slept with him. Through the window of the attic room the moon-beams shone softly, and they threw their beautifnl light on Fannie's pale face, and on«Bennie's curlinghair. They showed Willie the seams and cracks in the old wall, the trunk which his father had carried with him on his voyage years age, and the little Bible on the stand. Precious little BiWe I His Sabbath School teacher had given it to Mm as atokenrof love, long before Willie had thought of ever being a runaway. Out of the window the same moonlight was falling softly on the old mulberry tree in the little garden, and making fantastic shadows of its leaves and branches upon the ground. It fell , too, upon the Squire's white house, standing so proudly among the old stately trees, and upon the long, winding roa...

But her friend only smiled, as she quietly said, " .The Bible also says there is 'a time to kill/" - " Well, and so there is," was the smart rejoinder. "The night our house was attacked by thieves, papa seized his pistols, and if the fellows hadn't run, he would have shot them/' , " Yet I don't think your papa would take life except under . necessity.

Now, if we; rightly understand it, the horse has not attained Ms full growth and perfection oi bodily frame, until he has passed his _seventh year; and until growth is attained_^he is just apiinfitted for extreme hardla_^p_^ fi_^ a man before arriving at full manhood, In this country the practice of putting horses to work at two or three years, usually results1 in their becoining broken down; -by oy_.er-di'iying, or over-straining, before they nave attained .firmness df muscle, and ca pability of enduring labor. Thus it is that horses are often; with us] rendered compstratiyely valueless before they have in truth arrived at an age of full powers and enSTir--ance. We have owned a number of hors_^, and w...
