sfiSSafeaaiamMHaS2 GENUINE HEROISM. The Direction in Which to Look for Frae tical Instances of It. - - Curtius rode into the dreadful and lark abyss for the salvation of Rome. 3t was a deed for all time to applaud and for all men to exult over a splen did exhibition of personal daring and of patriotic sacrifice. A good deal nearer to us in. point of fact and time "was the heroic front of Nathan Hale, the gallant young martyr of the Amer ican revolution, whose last regret was that he had only only one life to give to his country. Very properly wc admire and celebrate these and all heroic deeds; but there are other kinds of heroism of which little note is made, but which ought to move us to admira tion as fervid as that which the world lias agreed to lay . upon the altars whereon patriotism has immolated it self in the Bplendid moments of tne world s history.

' PIGS FOR PROFIT. Tle Proper Way of Curing ForMdUkUC inr browinr Porkers. I once knew of n bunch of pigs which tan in a field, ate grass, and rooted a uttie; were fed a little shelled corn scattered on the ground, and two meals ol a slop made of water and wheat mid dlings. There were nearly a score of rthem, and they were thrifty and pic tures of health. They slept under a tshed all enclosed, except an open door ,in the middle, through which they entered. Their bed was dry, and a iresh lot of straw once in awhile made .11 inviting. Here was a real pig para dise. and the sprightly ways and bright looks of the inmates were proof beyond dispute, of comfort, health and rapid growth. By-and-by. winter ; came. The shed was required for sheep, and the pigs .were shut in a large building with a Jot of straw put in one corner for a bed. und the rest of the space for a feeding '.place, and other uses natural to the pig3.

THE CHESTNUT BELL. Tbe News or Its Existence Finally Readies an Encllsli Magazine Editor. To g.-y that the Americans have got a new slang expression is like repeat ing the ancient news that a man died yesterday in London. But there are giants even among the Brobdingnags, and from time to time a fresh Ameri canism breaks out "like an Irish rebel lion thirty thousand strong," and rises to the dignity of a national institution. Such seems to be the magnitude and importance of the simple word "chest nuts." Like many great incarnations "chestnuts" came at first before the world in humble guise. As an Ameri can Anglo-German poet has sung: No one knew how it was started. Or how de fore-shlog came but about two years ago, where or whenever a Frenchman would have cried "Connu!" or an Englishman have murmured "Joe Miller!" the Transat lantics began to yell "chestnuts!" Woe to the man who tried to palm off an "old soldier" for a "recruit," if any one was present who recognized a single feature...
