ROLLER-SKATING. "Jimmy Brown's" Idea of a Skat Intg Rink till Sister Sue's Experience - How the Bold, Bad Boy Took Advantage of Her Trusting Innocence-An Easy and Pleasant Pastime. We have a skating rink in our town. A skating rink is a great big building with only one big room, and you skate all over the floor on roller skates. It's almost as good as a circus, and Deacon lIopkins says it's just as good, and that people ought to be ashamed to go to it. I don't think it's quite as good as that, but there is lots of fun in roller-skating. It looks as easy as anything to skate or. rollers, but isn't so easy after all. I learned to skate in one day, and can skate beautiful now. My knee has got over being stiff, and I can see out of my right eye, though it is pretty black. The doctor says my nose will go down in a few days, and that I needn't wear my arm in a sling morenaweek more. I had an elegant time learning to skate, and I shall be able to skate some more just as soon as my arm is w...

THE CHRONICLE., COLFAX. - LOUISIANA. GIRLS, ASIYOU GO ALONG. Come, all you fair young housewives and listen unto me, (I mean those lucky ones, who are from servant-bondage free.) And some advice I'11 give you in a simple little song With the simple little chorus of-Girls, as you go along. O, as you go along, Leave everything where it should be, girls, as you go along. You take a fancy for a cake, late in the afternoon, And four, butter, sugar, eggs, and milk, and bowl, and spoon. And other necessary aids, the kitchen table throng; Don't let them stay, clear them away, girls, as you go along. O as you go along Put each one back in Its right place, girls, as you go along. And then you'll find how easily a great deal can be done Without your being "tired to death" at setting of the sun. And though, sometimes, in spite of care, things seem to turn out wrong, 'Twill always pay to smooth the way, girls, as you go along.

SCHOOLMASTERS. How They Enjoyed Their Positions in the Olden Time. Schoolmasters have alvays had a rep utation for severity, and have excelled in the use of the cane. In fact, ftgging seems to have formed a part of the sys tem of training in force at public schools. The great reformer, Erasmus, remarks Archdeacon Farrar, has left us a painfully graphic account of how he saw a poor boy at St. Paul's cruelly beaten by a grave and reverend divine for no fault whatever, but merely to show him the discipline of Engli.sh boys. And so, for centuries the bad custom of cruel education continued. It was for the purpose of securing milder treat wment of children at school that Roger Asham wrote his celebrated work on "'The Schoolmaster," but it does not seem to have effected any reform, for beating was thought the best way of re ducing a boy into proper form or shape. At the end of the eighteenth century Southey was expelled from 1Westminster school because he had bolly denouncel the system of...

THE CHRONICLE. COI.FAX. - LOUISIANA. A LOST OPPORTUNITY. A youth he came upon a maid Within a shady arbor, A-reading of a learned book, One summer at liar Harbor. The fog was slowly drifting down. She wore a fine aesthetic gown. "0. will you walk with me?' he said, The youth so brave and comely. *"Twould be less hard." the maiden sighed, "If he were only homely: But surely I this lovely gown Should ruin, walking through the town."
