14 Our Hat."—Mr. Slang had just mar-
ried, a second wife. On the day after the
wedding, Mr. Slang said :
" I mean to enlarge my dairy."
< 44 You mean our dairy, my dear," re-
plied Mrs. Slang.
44 No," quotb Mr. Slang ; " I say I shall
eplarge my dairy."
No, my dairy."
"Say tur dairy—say our," screamed
Mrs. Slang, seizing the poker.
44 My dairy ! my dairy ! my dairy," vo
ciferated the husband.
" Our dairy ! our dairy ! our dairy !!"
re echoed the wife, emphasizing each * our'
with a blow of the poker upon the,back of
th9 cringing spouse.
Mr. Slang retreated under the bed. In
passing under the bed clothes, Mr. Slang's
hat was brushed off"; Mr. Slang remained
under cover soveral minutes, waiting for a
calm. At length 1m wife saw him thurst-
ing his head out rf the bed much like a
turtle from his shell.
44 What are you looking for, Mr. Slang?"
441 am looking, my dear," snivelled he,
44 to see if I can see anything ofwur hat."
The struggle was over; and ever since
the above mentioned occurrence, Mr. Slang
has studiously avoided the odious singular

It cannot be denied that the use of to-
bacco in any form is more or less
injurious to health. If the unfortunate
habit of smoking has not been acquired,
we earnestly advise that it should never be
commenced. Still there are many who
read this who are already weded to the
habit, and it is ^to them that we would of-
fer a few suggestions.
1. Smoking is much more injurious to
thin spare made people than to stout ones.
If you are delicate or dyspeptic, avoid to-
baccp as you would poison, for you will
most certainly shorten your days by its
use. , . 0
2. Never smoke in the morning. At
this period of the day, tobacco enervates
the mind, destroy the will, impairs the di-
geston, and renders the smoker unfit for
3. Smoking is least injurious after a full
4. Never smoke in the presence of la-
dies. As a general rule they dislike the
smell of tobacco, ándito some it is positive-
ly repulsive in the highest degree.
5. After smoking, chew a small piece of
dried orange peel, or a clove. Breath la-
den with the fumes of stale tobacco is pe-
6. Don't smoke just before going to bed.
Half the sleepless nights of which many
persons complaiu is entirely owing to this
7. Smoke good cigars. Tobacco smok-
ed through a pipe is very injurious ; a great
deal more nicotine is extracted in this way.
than by smoking cigars, and this active
principle of the plant is one of the deadli-
est poisons known.
8. Calculate-how much money you an-
nually speud in smoking, and tUeU| ask
yourself seriously if you could nót use that
amount to some better purpose.
9. Don't exporate while you smoke; this
is purely a habit, and renders the practice
More injurious than when it fc not indulg-
10. Don't smoke at all. If you have
acquired the habit, use a little mental en-
ergy and rid yourself of it,
Whenever you see a gall with a whole
lot of sweethearts, it's an even chance if she
gets married to any on 'em. One cools off
and another cools off, and before she brings
any on 'em to the right weldin' heat, the
coal is gone aod the fire is out. Then she
may blow till she's tired ; she may blow
up a dust, but the duce of a flame can she
blow up agin, to save her soul alive. 1
never see a clever looking gall in danger,
that I don't long to whisper in her ear—
You dear little critter, you, take care, you
have too many irons in the fire, some on
'em will get stone cold, and t'other ones will
get bürnt, so they'll be no good in natur.
The Austin Intelligencer, in speaking ' f
the difference in old times iu Geoig:a
and the present state of affairs in Texas,
discourses as follows:
Wé well remember the maxim of our
fathers, 44 to make every :thing at home—
to sell as much and buy5as little as possi-
To carry out this notion, plows, plow-
stocks, collars, ropes, hames, horse shoes,
clevises, axes, wagons, carts, aud all gear-
ing, except the trace chains, were made at
home—generally on the farm or by a
neighborhood mechanic, whose labor was
generally paid for in barter. Nothing was
imported except the iron and steel, which
every former hauled from Augusta with his
own team. Brooms, baskets, brushes, foot
mats, etc., were manufactured out of sedge,
shuks or rushes. Bed cords, and square
bedsteads, and all plain furniture were
made at home, the turned posts being
made and polished by a neighboring me-
chanic. We 44 pitched" our wagons, roofs
and pailings-from home distilled tar, thus
saving the expense of paint. Every far-
mer had a huge tan trough, where he man-
ufactured his leather from the skins of his
own beeves or the cows which died in the
mire. Even the horse skins, dog skins,
and sheep skins were not lost. And, on
every farm there was somebody who could
make stitch downs, 44 welted" or pegged
shoes. The shoe thread was from flax
spun on the place, and the wax made from
rosin of the native pines. Lights were
from home made tallow or the great pine
torch on the hearth. Many of the candle-
sticks were carved out of white oak or
other hard wood. Tobacco was grown at
home, and pipes moulded from the abun-
dant pipe clay, or carved out of soap stone.
The whet stones and grind stones were
taken from quarried. Wheat cradles and
cotton baskets were made from our forest
white oaks, nothing being bought but the
blades. Upon the farms were grown corn,
wheat, rye, oats, flax, onions, indigo, peas,
beans, potatoes, in a word, every thing for
consnmption, besides cotton for sale We
a!so raised our own horses, cattle, mules,
hogs, sheep for wool, fowl* for leathers,and
in a word; almost every thing to eat and
on which to sleep. Brandy and whiskejr
were manufactured from t!ie forchards and
from the corn—so that every farmer had
his own 44 peach and honey," and apple
cider. Few indulged in the luxuries of
In the house our mothers and sisters
were equally saving. They spun and wove
their own 44 every day dresses," knit their
own stockings, made their own flannel,
white, red, walnut colored, or dyed with
hay leaves. So they clothed their hus-
bands and sons with osnaburgs and fine
jeans, which were cut and made at home.
Old Johnny Rupert made our wool and
fur bats, which were generally paid for
with fox, coon and rabbit skins. Coun-
terpoiut, sheets, coverlets and bed quilts,
ed ticks, carpets aud window curtains
were also made by their industrious bands.
Theye were few drug stores in the counfry,
garden herbs, roots, barks and peppers
served to a great extent for medicines.
Of books and newspapers there were not
uch an abundance, but those accessible
were well read.
These were glorious primitive days ;—
and well do we remember tbe relief which
carding and spinning machines and then
the manufactories brought. If farmers
made less cotton to sell, they generally had
money to lend. For it took not much mon-
ey to buy 44 store goods for Sunday wear."
We can only say to Texas, that the
stores supply almost every thing which we
have enumerated. From water bucket to
horse colar, from stockings to hair strings,
from shoes to hats, all, all are bought from
tbe stores. Those institutions which have
kept many a Georgian more immovable
than his worn out hills or his congenial
society—the ley hoppers, tbe ash gums,
the fat gourds and the soap trough are al-
most unknown! We have rever ed the
Georgia maxim. We buy all we can and
sell just as little as possible. No amount
of money is enough fur a family. We
spurn the notion that "labor is degrading,"
but we literally believe Solomen when he
says that " Much labor is wearisome to the
flesh." And yet Texas is a great country
and has great people.

For Mothers.—In a late cumber of the
Eclectic Medical Journal,the editor remarks
that young babies often cry from actual
thirst. Their natural supply is intended
as food, not as drink, and makes them
thirsty without quenching tbe thirst as a
cool liquid would. They cry, be thinks,for
cold water. Many a mother is anxious to
know what ails tbe little sufferer that it
should cry so loudly, and imagining it to
be suffering from pain, administers some
unnecessary opiata, or pain killer, when all
tbe child needs is a few tea spoonfulls of
good, pure, sparkling cold water. As the
experiment is a very simple and easy one,
let all mothers try it first, before having re-
course to medicine. In warm weather.par-
ticularly, children may be suffering from
thirst instead of pain, and a *mall quantity
of cold water may give them immediate re-
