There was not much snow, and the thermometer rarely went more than 30 degrees below zero. It occasionally Cook a spurt and went down 45, 50 and even Cfbut that was not often.

I've got several cords that I want sawed in two for the fireplace." "I should charge you about half a dollar a day if I bad a saw, " replied Caleb, "but I ain't got none, captain, so I don't see bow I can accommodate you." "If that's all that's lacking, I guess we can manage it," said the captain. "I've got a prime new .one, keen as a brier, and I'll let it to you reasonable. How would ninepenoe 12 cents) cord do for the use of it?" "I reckon that's a fair price, captain. I'll be over in tbe mornln. " Bright and early tha t next July morning' Caleb was at work, and be kept at it so faithfully that he finished before sunset, when he went to the house to settla "Let's see," said the oaptain, "you were to have half a dollar a day. We'll oall it a day, although it ain't sundown yet That's 60 cents for you, and you were to pay me ninepenoe a cord for the use of the saw. There were three cords and a half in the pile. That makes 48 cents due ma Somehow, Caleb, you don't have very much coming to yon. " "Bow unfortnit," said Caleb, after scratching bis bead dubiously for half a minute, and then looking up quiokly, as if a new light had broken in upon his mind "how unfortnit that you didn't have half a cord more, for then we'd 'a' come out Jest square I" Success. MaaieaJ Famll?. When Andubon wss traveling In Labrador, he came, one day, upon a bonss where the friendly inhabitants mads much of him snd his companions ' and where the good wife asked him if he played on any instrument "L myself, " she said, "am extraordinarily fond of mnsio and have an instrument whioh has been sent away for repairs. We miss it greatly, for we can all play on it, and when we are tired the servants use it for us." "Ton must be a very musical family, "said the naturalist "What sort of an instrument is itf" 8he was perplexed. "Gentlemen," said she, "my instrument is larga longer than broad, and Unas on four legs like a tabla At one end is a crooked hand, by turning whioh, fast or slow, J sasare jot we make most excellent mnsio. "A hand organ I" , fibs smiled delightedly. "Ah, that's it I" said ana "It is hand organ, but for the life of me I eouldnot recoil sot the nama " Ycatn e Companion, ' IaBronatw J tl . .

All ' kinds of mercantile business has also been good, and some of the merchants of Dawson have made fortunes. Her Splendid Hair. When Mrs. Norton was in the heyday f her b)veliiiew, a very beantiful Italian woman came to London, bringing letters of introduction. Mrs. Norton asked a small party of fashionable people to meet her at dinner, amoDg whom was Lord Normanby, r. great admirer of pretty women. All the men were enchanted with the beautiful stranger and sill the women rather jealona One of her great beauties was a profusion of splendid hair, dressed in innumerable plaits. The women decided they were not all her own. Before the evening was over Lord Normanby expressed his admiration of the wonderful hair and intimated bow much he should like to see it let down. "Since yon wish it, my lord," said the woman, and she forthwith anplaited one massive coil after another, while the other women looked on, devoured with envy. "I am doing for you, my lord, what I do not do for everybody," taid the nourV easting op her fine eyes at the enraptured Lord Normanby from under her mantle of flowing locks. "It is three weeks now since I last undid my hair. " Which announcement in some degree consoled the English dames for their inferior looks. (Mem In the Pulpit. The tenets of John Wesley and his disciples were eagerly embraced in Norfolk, and Giles frequently became a local preacher. One "local," Sam by name, is described as "a born teacher," though his similes often dropped to the burlesque. On ene occasion he took for his text, "The wages of sin is death," and prefaced bis sermon as follows: "My fri'nds, Brother Paul tells ns that the waages o sin is death.. Now, let's see wuther we kin grasp wot h maan by't S'pose I wor tu go an dn my baarwest for Mr. H. (a local farmer), an arter all the wok wor dun go an ai Mr. T.
