lazy yellow dog. The two letters which give him his title are branded on his shoulder. He sticks very close to me, for the reason, possibly, that I do not kick him, and say Get out, as most persons are tempted to do when they look upon his most unprepossessing visage. He is a solemn dog, and probably has had a rough row to hoe through life. At times, when I speak an encouraging word, he brightens up, and makes an effort to be playful; but cheerfulness is his forte no more than fiten was A. Ward's, and he soon relapses into the deepest melancholy. May, 16 Read Emil Sehalk's article on Hooker. It is an easy matter for that gentleman to sit in his library, plan a campaign, and win a battle. I could do that myself; but when we undertake to make the campaign, fight the battle, and win the victory, we find it very much more difficult. Book farmers are wonderfully successful on paper, and show how fortunes may be gathered in a single season, but when they come down to practical

ading physician were of his opinion, and the solemn judgment of three such distinguished men was, in my mind, all but conclusive. Yet, alas! the village knowledge of war proved as illusive as that of Betsey Ward, when her old man, the immortal A. Ward, was prancing up and down the room, musket in hand, drilling. The cellar-door being open, a sudden right — about wheel threw him in, nearly breaking his neck. Are you hurt, deary? exclaimed Mrs. A. W., running to the hole, and putting her question in the direction of the groans below. Go away! shouted Ward; what do you know about war? Well, when the war was over our little circle of prophets, or those of them who lived through it, knew more about it than they did when it commenced. They found that mountains were no barrier to cannon, and that terrible armies with banners swept past them back and forth with the apparent ease that a pendulum swings in its course. From near the beginning the Southern soldiers were with us-squad

From four to five hundred cars a year are now unloaded in the yard of the Page Box Co. Parry Brothers. Cambridge has achieved an enviable reputation for many thriving industries, and among the number that of manufacturing the best brick deserves a word of special mention. The business is all concentrated in one section, a part of Ward 5, North Cambridge. The various pits are located at the upper portion of the section named above, and the most extensive manufacturers are Parry Brothers, whose success and fame in this line are due to unceasing energy, push, and enterprise. The firm originated in 1874, when the late C. E. Parry, father of the Parry brothers, commenced the industry at the old New England Brick Co.'s plant at the foot of Raymond Street. Mr. Parry died in 1878, and his sons, Messrs. John and William, contin

looked through, the owner and sufferer waits to witness the same operation on his fellow travelers, and a modest man is inexpressibly pained at the exposure of his inexpressible and other delicate articles of clothing. The little private bottles of "spirits" exposed would astonish you, and the quantity is only equalled by the agility of the owners in jerking a vest or coat over them. Of course the crowd don't laugh, nor jeer, nor the victim's face don't turn red; of course not. (This, as A. Ward would say, is ironical.) As we passed Goldsboro', N. C., coming down, the news of the surrender of Fort Sumter had just reached there, and the town was ablaze with tar barrels. Every man that had a gun was out and firing it, and this deponent firmly believes that if any man had been insane enough then and there to cheer for the Northern Confederacy, he would have had only five minutes between him and a Confederacy so very far South that the process of acclimation therein is so extreme

Ward, of Guadalupe county, who had been convicted of murder a year ago, was sentenced to be hung on Friday, the 13th of December. The Confederacy has the following nut for Abolitionists: "The case of Charity, a free negro, and her five children, who had petitioned the court to enter voluntary slavery for life, was also disposed of, and our fellow-townsman, Geo. B. Hollamon, became the lucky recipient and owner of six as likely slaves as could be found in any country. Another strong
A Modest man. --Brown, better known as A. Ward, showman, says: "If I am drafted, I shall resign. Deeply grateful for the unexpected honor conferred upon me, I shall feel compelled to resign the position in favor of some more worthy person. Modesty is what ails me. That's what keeps me under."
