Her bustle was a mighty thing, That weighed about four pound; Her hoop a vast encircling thing, Fall fifteen feet around. Her powdered hair was curled to tight, And built up steeple high; She could not take it down at night, Nor could she wink her eye; For days together, I have read, Her hair would thus remain; I fear me much, dear grandma's head A shampoo would disdain. She used to drink a power of wine, And gamble with the men; And lace I this slender waist of mine Belonged to fish wives then. Her lovers did not woo like men, But used to sneak and creep Beneath Miss Grandma's window when The family was asleep. And then-I've heard grandfather say When she was seventeen, One pitch dark night she ran away With him to Gretna Green; All this my badness qualities At times when ma nlfurla Her family histo...

Thc India iabber Tree. The " India Ita`ber" or "rubber plant" is a familier and cherished objret in many houses. T!:ere is not, probably, a plant among those chich, during the last 25 years, have bincome really popular for the embel. lishment of living-rorme and conservatoriee, which is better suited for the purpose; and there are few persons now who know any. thing about plants at all who are not familiar with the strailt stem and splendid great, dark-green, lustrous, leathery leaves of the "rubber plant," which seems able to re. east, with impunity. darkness, neglect and drought, and even an atmosphere vitiated by tee gases ,ram burning coals. Plants more tnan 10 or 12 feet high are not very often fobnd in cur cities, and few people, perbsps, who see coe of the plants flourishing year after year in the narrow quarters of an ordinary.sized flower-pot realise that it belongs to a race of veritable giants, or that the Fpcus elastica, as our common "rubber" plant is called by botanist...

Why CainI Eiilcd Abel. The basest frand on earth is agriculture. The deadliest iuislfatrr s that ever glittere d to beguile and dazzled to betray, is agriculture. I speak wlth feeling on this sul-ject, for I're been glittered, and beguiled and danzled, ar.d destroyed by this same arch deceiver. She has made me a thousand promises and brcken every one of them. She has promised me early potatoes, and the drought has withered them. She has promised cherries and the ureuallio has stung them, and they contain living things uncomely to the eye and n. I savory to the taste. She has promised strawberries and the young chickens have devoured them, and the eye cannot see them. No wonder that Cain killed his brother. He was a tiller of the ground. The wonder is he did not hill his father, and then weep be cause he had not a grandfather to kill. No doubt his Larly Ilase potatoes, for which he paid Adam 10e. a barrel, had been cut down by bugs fomunt the head.watera of Euphrates; his spring whea...
