PARAFFIN OIL AS A MANURE. A correspondent of tliV -Duni eriii- linf Journal says that lie has tried a number of experiments, extend ing over a course of years, which satisfy him that paraffin oil is something more than a substitute for the best guano. Ilis garden having been overrun with rats and mice, he had to sow double the quantity of peas and beans, and sometimes to sow these twice over. } Last year hr sowed 221bs. of beans and 61bs. of .pas without any - manure, but he previously soaked the seeds for a short time in paraffiin oil. ]Nrone were touched ; every pea and beaii germinated, and the crop was enormous.

An elderly man with peaked features, large watery eyes, and an attire of dilapidated re spectability, called at a Danbury house (says the 'News) last Eriday morning for lunch, lie said ho was travelling from Boston to Buffalo, at which hitter place he had great expectations. He sat down at tho kitchen table, with his long- legs curled up under it, while his ponderous nose stood out like a groese-spOfc on a pair of white pants. The woman of the house brought him a plate of bread and moat and a bowl of coffee. While she was placing the things he noticed that she wore a black dress and a look of pallor. 'Had a death, madam?' he softly in quired, as he squared himself for the repast. ' Yes, sir.' 'Lately?' ' Last Tuesday,' she answered faintly. 'I was sure of it.

EACETIiE. We read of a man who is so noted for his rosorvod manners that nobody over saw him display any. The letters in tho word 'demonstrative' can be arranged in 0,227,020,800 ways so they say ; but a man doesn't live long enough these days to demonstrate it. ' Science,' says Dr. Holmes, 'is a good piece of furniture for a man. to have in an upper chamber, provided he has common sense on the ground floor.' ' I never complained of my condition but once,' said an old man, 'when my feet were bare and I had no money to buy shoes ; but I met a. man without any feet, and be came contented.' A student who failed to pass his Greek history examination repudiated with scor*. the insinuation that he was not prepared. Ho had crammed himself, he said, so tight that he could not get it out again. A lady had her dress trimmed with bugles before going to a hall. Her little daughter wanted to know if tho bugles would blow when she danced: ' Oh, no,' said the mother; ' pa will do that when he sees...

RULES FOR BANK CUSTOMERS. The annexed rules are recommended by an American paper to the attention of those who do business at the banks. A great deal of time and annoyance may be saved — by not following- them : — Rule 1. — If you have any business with a bank, put it off until 3 o'clock, or if possible, a little later, as it looks more business-like to rush in as the bank is closing. Rule 2. — Never put stamps on your ? cheques before you get to the bank, but give the cashier two cents, and ask him to lick it and cancel it for you ; the cashier expects to lick all tlie stamps, and it is a source of disappointment to him when people- insist on doing it them selves. and will save him buyiim- his lunch. Rule 3. — In dep. -imig money, try to get it upside down .d wrong end fore most, so that tlie shier may have a little exercise in sti-ii --htening it up be foi1?) counting it. ?
