"I have resolved to make away with myself. Apothecary, mix me a powerful potion, which will fin ish my earthly career. Give me some thing against which antidotes are of no avail, and which the stomach pump is powerless to withdraw. Do you understand?" "Yes, sir," replied the chemist, as he took down a bottle containing some whitish powder. "This- is the strong. est poison known. I'll give you ten grains of it, which will be quite enough for. your purpose." The chemist, proceeded to weigh the piowder and wrap it up, saying as he, did so: "I would advise you to take the powder to your room, first being careful to make your will and do such other matters as you deem necessary, for after you have swallowed the po tion you will not be able to do any thing before it begins to take effect.

GIVING CUPID A GENTLE HINT. What a number of undesirable mar riages we hear about-that is, unde sirable from the parents' poinUtof view. A goodly number of fathers arid mothers are wondering how such can be prevented. A solution might be obtained by following the example of a gentleman we will call Mr. Blank His family consisted of himself, his wife, and six sons; and like a good many other fathers, he had never thought of the marriage subject till the mysterious manoeuvres of his eld. est son, a youth of twenty, began to make him uneasy.

Mr. David Rob ertson, of Lyle's Creel:,. obtained a 221b. fleece of unwashed wool from one of his Leicester rams. The length, of staple shown to us was .13 inches. Who would believe that organ inanufacture ever existed in the Marsh, but it was so in 1877, and strange to say, that Mr. John Camp bell, who was engaged in building an organ had no practical know ledge of organ building. He had succeeded in getting the instrument so far completed that tunes could be played upon it, but hlie was com pelled to abandon the undertaking for want of funds. The organ was of large size, and was said to be c...

A COUNTRY WITHOUT HAWKERS. The careful and industrious house :ife who stays at home, attends to her duties, and answers promptly every knock at the front door, has many annoyances to put up with, which would -cause her husband to imperil his chance of future salva tion if hlie had the same experience for a week. Undoubtedly, one of the greatest annoyances is the hliaw ker, in whatever guise hlie may pre sent himself; and if a country could only abolish him, it would, in the eyes of most women, have made a great step towards realising the mil lenium. Messrs. Ward Bros., the proprie tors of the A.N.A. Sewing Machine. are making a big effort to reduce the "hawker" pest by selling sewing machines without the aid of door to door canvassers; and the fact that they are doing one of the biggest businesses in machines in Australia is a safe indication that the house wives of the Commonwealth appre ciate their system, and their machine.
