YANKEE INGENUITY. -ft. Clever Idea Which Rapidly Enriched Its Thoughtful Author. The ingenious toy-maker of old who made a coach-and-four, complete as to all details, so small that the shell of a - hazelnut would cover it, has been sur passed in the line of ingenious play things by a Rhode Island Yankee.

It is said that this has been going on for some time, and has incited a num ber of sharp Mexicans to the manufac ture of imitation opals, which they have sold in large quantities.

KINDNESS TO ANIMALS. Pecuniary Benefit to Be Derived From Proper Treatment of Live-stock. Let a thorough system of reasoning -be commenced in infancy, and by the time mature years have come, all do mestic animals will be useful and pleas Tint co-laborers with us. There is a right and a wrong way to do every, thing. When a thing appears reason able to the understanding of a person or animal, there is generally a free acquiescence. This can best be ob tained through kind words and gentle treatment. The horse that under stands the words of command is not only trusty but is worth three times as much as one who can be managed only by mechanical means, and that dare not be allowed to take a step unless some one has a hold on him. Besides, he will do his woik far more easily, be cause he does it voluntarily. Who does not admire the team that can be guided and controlled while at work simply by the word of command? How it lessens labor and gives the driver more freedom to attend to his duti...
