' The Solid DfBiocmtlc Pnriy. TTe entcrtuia the opinion that the following article should be read by Bepubli-ans as well us Democrats, and that one parly has no right to monopolise nil the food political literature: Let uo Democrat be troubled by the Radical ontcry over tho solid South. It is a legitimate political product. It represents one hundred and thirty-eight votes in the elec toral college, ninety-six votes in the Federal House, and thirty in the Senate. With this compact, reliable power at its command tho Demo cratic party needs only the exercise of common sagacity and honesty in the administration of public and party affairs to triumphantly rule this couutry for the next two gen erations. The great problem with the Radi cal party was to prevent the forma tion of a solid Democratic South. In this they have most signally fail ed. Ilence they naturally think "the fruits of the war" have been lost to them. That they howl, gnash their teeth and threaten dreadful conse quences i...

f THE FARMER'S STRATEGY. Farmer Evans walked around bia wood-pile and surveyed its dimin ished proportions with a considera ble lowering of his shaggy eyebrows. "Somebody's helping themselves," he.thought. "I must set my wits to work to discover tho offender." He sat down on a log, rested his elbows on his knees, and after scratching his head awhile by way of brightening his ideas, he settled his head in the palm of his hands and meditated. His cogitations roust have been satisfactory, for he rose by and by with a queer smile ovcrtpreading his weather- beaten face, and walked into the house chuckling, 'Til do it; that'll let the cat out of the bag!" lie found Harry Bailey, a young, likcly-lookiug farmer, in the kitchen with his daughter. "That young fellow is courting Jennie, sure enough!" thought the old gentleman, as he discreetly pass ed into the sitting room. "Well, he's as likely to make her a good husbaud as any one. If she likes him, I shan't object." And ho fell into a fit o...

A Crc for Slander. The following very homely but singularly instructive lessou is by St. Phillip Neri : A lady presented herself to him one day accusing herself of being given to slander. "Do you fre quently fall into this fault?" in quired the Saint. "Yes, father,very often," replied the penitent. "My dear child," said the Saint, "your fault Is groat, but the mercy of God ie 6till greater; for your penance do as follows: Go to the nearest mar ket, purchase a chicken just killed and still covered with feathers; you will then walk to a certain distance, plucking the bird as ynu go along; your walk finished, you will return to me." Great was the astonishment of the lady in receiving so strange a pen ance; but silencing all human reas oning, she replied, "I will obey you, father, I will obey." Accordingly she repaired to tho market, bought the fowl and set out on her journey, plucking it as she went along as she had been ordered. In a short time &he returned anx ious to tell of her...
