Xate, Harry and Edna bad gone out to play, In the great roomy barn, Inong the sweet-scented bay While, now and then pausing the baby to tend, Mamma was hard trying their wee clothes to mend. With a little patch here and a little patch there, And a sigh and a smile for each hole and each teat And with almost a wish, as she saw the old hen Strutting proudly about with her speckled chicks ten. That her little chickens in feathers were clad, When she heard a wild scream, as of some one gone mad And Harry and Kitty exclaimed in one breath, "A tramp has shot Edna and killed her to death!* Mamma to the barn in wild agony flew. But what do you think met her wondering view? In the manger sat Edna—and Edna alone— While the fast-trickling tears on her rosy cheeks shone, By egg-shells surrounded on every side— A comical object, it can't be denied!

Chinese Proverbs. Many of the Chinese proverbs have their counterparts in English the dif ference of expression, however, being in many oases characteristic. Thus: Throw a sprat to catch a whale," is rendered, Throw a brick to allnre a gem." Not to cry -stinking fish," is rendered in Chinese, "The melon seller declares his melons sweet." Take care of the pence, and the pounds will take care of themselves," becomes," Count cash as though they were gold "—cash being a coin of the smallest denomination. Again, A rolling stone gathers no moss," is trans lated, The swallow plastering its nest is labor lost"—this being a very happy allusion to the migratory habits of the bird. "Preparing is preventing," an old English expression, has its counter part in, Get the coffin ready and the man won't die," while Too manjcooka will spoil the broth" is rendered by the curious expression, Seven hands and eight feet." There is a black sheep in every flock becomes, Crows are black all the worJd over."...

FARMER Having received two letters from your county asking my opinion as regards the best breed of swine for a farm er to raise, I thought that I would reply through your paper, hoping that other breed ers will reply through the same medium, and make your paper interesting to the farmer and breeder.

A COUNTRY THANKSGIVING SERMON Ay, goodman, close the great barn door The mellow harvest time is o'er The earth has given her treasured meet Of golden corn and bearded wheat. You and your neighbors well have wrought, And of the summer's bounty caught, Won from her smiles and from her tears Much goo4 perhaps for many year^. You come a tribute now to pay— The bells proclaim Thanksgiving Day. Well have you sown, well have you reaped And of the riches you have heaped, You think, perhaps, that you will give A part, that others, too, may live.

What is your wealth? He'd have yon know To hold it, you must let it go. Think you the hand by Heaven struck cold Will yet have power to clutch its gold? Shrouds have no pockets,do they say? Behold!

"Dey Hurries Me So." We onoe xead the testimony of a mas over 90 years as to the probable secret of his long life. He attributed his length of years to the fact that he never overworked himself that is, he never heated his system and crowded his heart-beats by hurrying "—no running when late for cars or boat, no scram bling and tearing to get hay out of the way of a thunder-shower, etc,, etc. It is a grave question whether the pupils in our "best" American schools are not overworked. The negro boy here quoted perhaps chose unfortunately, but he will not die of over-study, as a young lady in a New England female seminary did the other day. A Phila delphia correspondent says: In this age of activity and haste to reach results, I desire to cite an in stance to prove that there remain some easy-going specimens of humanity who have no wish to take part in the gen eral rush. A friend of mine, residing in Phila delphia, who had occasion last year to visit South Carolina, was detained few d...
