THE TROUT. Bow nod When He Leap* Falls—Hl* Mental CaparitT. It is only during freshets, or when the waters are running, says the American Angler, that the trout can leap a fall; then, taking the waters at a point where the stream runs strong and steady, they back into the quieter waters to gather impetus and make a dash at the fall. So long as the body of water covers them entirely, with all fins submerged, they can make progress, but let the force of the current turn them until one fin is exposed to the air, and down the fish goes to the foot of the falls. Stunned, strained and apparently bruised, it lays quiescent, but, soon rallying its forces, it swims gently up to within a few inches ol the down-pouring riood, as if carefully surveying the stream of water, then backing gently under force of the current, it rests a few moments, and then, quick as the eye can follow its movements, it cuts the water, slightly at angle to its force, and just at the breast of the fall or dam it is s...

Dm »r * Hone. “ About tlv Jseks ago you bad an item in your ) about anew scheme for cwrm* balky horses. It was an electric hd&ry to be place ! in the buggy, with wee running to the horse’s bit, and when the horse balked the instructions were to touch a button with the foot, when the electric current would go to the horse’s mouth, take his attention from his balkiness and he would get along all right. Do you remember such an item?” The editor scratched the bald spot on his head, looked wise and said he did remember something about it, and asked the visitor if he had purchased a battery and tried it. “ Tried it 1” said he, as he picked up one of the crutches and fixol the splints on his sprained arm. “ Yes, sir, I tried it, and it is a wonder that I am spared to come in and maul you. I live out near Eagle, and have got an old mare that has been balky off and on for sixteen years. I read about that battery, and sent to Chicago and got one and rigged it up in the botlom of a...

THE DELIGHTED DUDE. T am the swell of the upper “ crawl,” Slim and tall. With a “ leaning fall,” My clothes fit tight as a papered wall, You could pick me out of a thousand. My dainty, namby-pamby grace, Sphinx-like face, And mincing pace Remove me far from the human race, That yon see by the hundred thousand. The secret of my style unique, Appearance sleek, Distinque cheek, My modiste could tell, hnt will not epealc, For she makes on me a few thousand. At matinees, I’m always there Among the fair, Who at me stare, Admiring my Montgomery hair, They worship me by the thousand. I quite despise the rough, rude press W ho mock my dress, But don’t distress; I’m just the riddle they cannot guess, No, not once in a thousand. But best of all, few can intrude Upon our brood, For we exclude Every fellow that’s not a dude, And he is one in a thousand. —New York Morning Journal. JffEG’S ADVICE.

FOll I A SEX. Ladlps Insects. Were it not 1 aundred and one little novelties are constantly being devised for ware elaboration other toilet the girl of the period would die of ennui. Just at present the insect craze is upon us and the women folks are decked out with spiders, scorpions, devil’s darning needles, pinch bugs, beetles and a whole range of ugly crawling and, creeping things which are used for ornaments. This only shows the superiority of art over nature. One real bug or lively spider will throw a woman into convulsions; but such is the ameliorating effect of art that she w r alks about with ill-con-cealed pride, fairly radiant under a dozen or more thousand-legged insects of blue, green, orange and red gilt. These hideous creatures are displayed in every part of the toilet, not so much for utility as ornament. They close a collar, loop a piece of drapery, fasten a bow of ribbon, lurk in the coils of prettily braided hair, peep out from the meshes of soft lace and thrust t...

(FARM, GARDEN AND HOUSEHOLD. Limlti# Meadows. Liming meadows or old pasture .lands with say thirty bushels to the acre, has an effect upon the condition jof the crop of grass that few farmers j would believe without giving it a trial. In fact we do not know how the same amount of money can be expended upon land with the same profit. It is not only certain but lasting. We have known farmers to pasture meadows fifty years without being turned up by the*simple application of lime once in six to ten years. These pastures, which are regarded as permanent, and mostly abound in clay molds, after being grazed down thoroughly are restored almost knee-deep in from fi /e to six weeks. We do not hesitate to say that nowhere has lime a more marked effect and can be used with better results than in the renovation of old pastures. —Germantown Telegraph. Charcoal ai a Food.

FOR THE *EX. A Minister • latte. The Rev. Dr. Me, Jroe, a Methodist divine in New York, preached on a recent Sunday evening on marriage. He said: The lady should, in my opinion, be twenty or twenty-two, and the gentleman five years her senior. Poor men cannot marry extravagant girls, who expect as good a home as their parents were only able to acquire after many years toil. The deceit practiced on both sides is very great. The ugly suitor gets a tailor to hide his deficiencies; the unsightly maiden calls in the aid of her rouge pot and milliner. Until recently marriage brokerage was carried on in Prance. We Americans are guilty of the Same thing in another way. Mothers sell daughters to the highest bidders, and daughters sell themselves for gold to men old enough to be their grandfathers. Such women would no more choose honest mechanics for husbands than they would convicts from the penitentiary. There is no reason why women should not choose as well as men. At present the men have ...

Trip Lightly. Trip lightly ovei trouble Trip lightly over wrong; We only make a grief double By dwelling on it long. Why clasp woe’s hand so tightly 7 Why sing o’er blossoms dead? Why cling to forms unsightly T Why not seek joy instead! Trip lightly over sorrow, Though all the ways be dark, The sun may shine to* morrow And gaily sing the lark. Pair hopes have not departed, Though roses may have fled, Then never be down-hearted. But look for joy instead. Trip lightly over sadness, Stop not to rail at doom. We’ve pearls to string of gladness On this side ot the tomb; Whilst stars are nightly shining, And the heaven is overhead, Encourage not repining— But look for joy instead. DELILAH.

Seymour, a brother officer of young Winton’s, with a suspected desire of forming another fraternal connection...

The r. 'ih f ' ♦ - AN EAS. •wFWD. An aged man came 1 vbraham’s tent. The sky was dark, ana * lhe plain was bare. He asked for bread; HuT strength was wellnigh spent; His haggard look implored the tenderest care. The food was brought. Be sat with thankful eyes, But spake no grace, nor bowed he toward the east. Safe-sheltered here from dark and angry skies, The bounteous table seemed a royal feast. But ere his hand had touched the tempting fare, Che Patriarch rose, and leaning on his rod, 'Stranger,” he said, “dost thou not bow in prayer? •ost thou not fear, dost thou not worship, God 7” de answered, “Nay." The Patriarch sadly said: “Thou hast my pity. Go! eat not my bread." Another came that wild and fearful night. Vhe fierce winds raged, and darker grew the sky; But all the tent was filled with wondrous light, And Abraham knew the Lord his God was nigh. “Where is that aged man?" the Presence said, “That asked for shelter Irom the driving blast ?

The Outer and the Inner Life* “That within which passeth show.”—Hamlet. There is a song within the lyre That never yet was sung; Unborn it lies upon each wire That loosely hangs unstrung, Until the minstrel’s hand shall strain The slackened cords in tune again, The bard’s creative spirit give That song a vocal soul to live. There is a form that marble bolds Beneath its surface rude. Deep in the uubewn heart it folds Beauty no eye has viewed, Until the sculptor’s band shall scale Each layer off that stony veil, Until at lost shall stand displayed The perfect lorm of loveliest maid. There is a poem never told Within the poet’s soul, Like tabled streams o’er beds of gold Beneath the earth that roll, Until some spell resistless wabe The soul in rhythmic song to break, As bursts the stream into the light, Bubbling with golden glory bright. There Is a love—nor tongue nor lips E’er told its deep desire; Burning the heart, it silence keeps Like subterranean fire, Until some mighty passion-g...
