Old Sorrel. Silence! heads down, hats off 1 peace all! Old "Sorrel's" about to die! Lay a brief truce on the busy thrall, Gather around the humble stall, Pillow, if needs be, his head upon down, Wreath him a hero's laurel crown. Emblem of victory* When in his prime, the flash of his eye, Spoke of the "wonder" he bore, Whether to chasm where thousands must lie t Whether on sod of incarnadined dye ! Nothing he recked since the foe made a stand. Steel walled and grim to his resolute band "Onward," his will, nothing more. Belted as giant, or glaived like a knight, The "wonder" claimed odds to oppose, Man meeting man, to him was no fight, Two to one, ten to one, plumed him aright, Sweeter the rest, r?hen the struggle was long, Prouder the crest, when the foe were thrice strong! Dealing back blows stout for blows! Yonder is Pope, "in the saddle," anent. Waiting to herald the day, When on a rampage the "Elder" was sent, Off to the valley, half witted, and bent, On sure destruction I Bah! "...

THOUGHT HIM A MEDICINE MAN. Aw* Inspired In the Bed Men by an Individual with a Glass Bye. A source cf constant interest to the spectators at the St. Paul carnifalare the Indians in their tepees at the palace grounds, and the canvas doors are con stantly raised for a look at the smutty inmates as they sit about their fires, the bucks smoking and the squaws making " embroidery or sewing. A rather odd in cident occurred in one of the tepees. A visitor entered who chanced to wear a glass eye. AVhen the canvas door was raised there was the usual cry from the door-tender,"Five cent," and the visitor responded by giving the dirty-looking squaw a dime and telling her to keep the change. This paved the way for a most hospita ble welcome. A young squaw, ap parently about 20, and rather more comely than the average, arose and spread a blanket, to which she motioned the visitor, and a brave who had been I sitting in the corner rose and made some signs of welcome with his hands, which he raised...

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. A Stt.tcken* Household.?Last week we recorded the death of the oldest son of Mr. T. E. Rickenbaker, and it is our .painful duty this week to chronicle the death of another son, the youngest of the household. This is, indeed,hand, but He who afflicts does it in mercy, and to Him we commend the bereaved ?ones. We understand that another child of Mr. Rickenbaker is now very ?iU, but we hope and pray that the little sufferer may soon recover.

BEYOND. Mino eye? were holden, that I could not sea How close before me stood, with out stretched hand, God's messenger, the angel sent to beckon me Away from all the cruel thorns, the miry clay, That vexed us as we toiled along the way, To follow his sweet guidance to the land Where none shall weep through all th' eternal day.. And knowing not how short the time would be, Dear heart, I fretted sorely as we went along; And made the way more sad and drear for thee, Nor ever sought to cheer thee with a song, O Love! e'en here in heaven there doth re main Regret for all I added to thy pain! ?Augusta D.

A LATENT STREAK OF INSANITY. Peculiarities of People Wfca Are Not &&? actly Compos Mentis?** A Fired Idee." Some one has said thai in every one of us there is a latent streak of insanity, and I guess he wasn't far in the wrong. The only thing is to keep our streak from be-, ing discovered. There was an old lady in Michigan who kept a boarding-house for students. She kept a good boarding house. She made royal pies, and she brought the juciest roasts upon the table that the hollowest student ever con sumed. She had the peculiarity of not being able to write her name. The stu dents, although they liked her pies, re garded her with great contempt. She was the last person to whom they thought of applying when they began to miss their Greek and Hebrew books, and great was their astonishment when one of them, who happened to go into her room for h fire-shovel, found them hidden in crannies about the fireplace. They re covered possession . only.-to-have them #?len again, ar.d itrb&g...

A NEW JERSEY TOBOGGAN CLUB. Lads and Lassos Taking a Slide?Sens* tlons of "Mcdlfled Rapture" The toboggan slide at Orange, N. J., consists of two rows of posts that become lines of red flags by day and of fire and coal oil smoke by night. Between these runs a long trough that looks like a grain chute a mile long. This wanders down a long hill, across a little valley, and up a smaller hilL It is mied half full of loose snow. The participants in the sport, with their toboggan, are fed in at the upper end, and in due process of time are shot out of the lower end. Then they climb np to the top, and the operation is repeated. The toboggan resembles a buckboard without wheels, turned up in front. Those of the Essex County club were of maple and hickory. The Indian article is put together with catgut; the American imitation with rivets. The more luxurious ones hare cushions. To thoroughly enjoy tobor^aning one must be gotten up in correct toboggan costume. The outfit of tho omb members con...

LOVE THE UNLOVELY. "This is the doctrine, simple, ancient, trow; This is life's trial, as old earth smiles and knows; If you loved only what were worth your love, Love was clear gain, and wholly well for yon; Make the low nature better by your throes I Give earth yourself, go up for gain above!" ?Browning.

Of pigs, I have heard it said, very fre quently: uWhen swine carry sticks, the clouds ?rill play tricks?" but that?"When they lie in the mud, no fears of a flood." The first of these couplets is of twofold interest. I have watched them for years, to see what purport this carrying of sticks and bunches of grass might have, and have only learned that it lias notling whatever to do with the weather, or at least with coming rain storms, The drouth of summer is so far a convenience as to throw light upon this habit, as it did upon the uneasy cows.

THE SILVER CLOUD. I saw a silver cloud at eventide, At eventide a little silver cloud; With outstretched, moveless wings, a paly dove She sailed toward the west, and thus she said: "Ah, joy was mine I He bathed mo in bis beams, Ho bathed me in his beams, and all day long Over a thousand fields, a thousand groves, My happy shadow floated like a dream. "Kiss, kiss once more my lips, my pallid lips; Bring me once more the blush I knew at mom; Cast thou thine arms about me, eru I die, Ere in a mist of tears I melt away!" While yet she spoke her cloudy pallor changed, she became a wreath of naming fire That did to scorn the sober evening star; ? But ah! she darkened visibly as she went Slowly she darkened, slowly, till 6he*was Waiter than ashes or the face of death. Then came a cold, low wind, and breathed on her; She in a mist of tears did melt away. ?John Philip Varley in The Atlantic ? G. Washington us on Aristocrat.
