Ouddle Headrlgtj than discourses In Land and Sea aoent a recent item of cable new: — •'A' yon youoe men wha bide m ludgln'hooaei bad better read thia wee telegram whllk wia In the papers the Ither nloht, an' whan ye read It tak tent, or In Ither words consider it weel : — ' A man named Schloops of Philadelphia, haa confeaßed that, enraged at the glattony of * boarder, hemnrdered him.'

Thluk o' that wh«n ye want malr soop or onlther helpln' o' bloong-mongfe, an' as Solomon, the wise man, says, " pit a knife tae yer throat. "

When I wls m ma yonng days I kent fine what ludgfcs were, an* ye a ken the 6sd, mournfu' look the boardln'-hooee keeper pies on as she Bees the leg o' beef whlik obe thooht wad dae the morn's denner beln' demolished by an ower hungry boarder ; 'the expression o' her oountenanoe wls malr thoughtful than before, as the sang says It's eaay tae nnnerataun' hoo a contin aed oooree o* this ' aeklo' foe more 1 wall bring it's am ooneeqnehoeß, bb pair Oliver Ttriat fand oot; bat that ony ludgln'-hooae keeper ahould gang the length o' Malste? Sohloopa U maist feartome ; its eneaoh tae pit boardln' oot the faahnn «n' Bet a' the young blrklas ail tae get marrlefc. Wban I think o* the narrow risk that mony lads I ken are rlnnln' It gars me implore them tae ' oa' oauny ' an* ralther boy a eoane on the road hame anner than gang In wi 1 a revln' appetite an 1 pdrmandize an' then set kilt, fnr ye can easy aea yer denner wull gree wl' ye better the ane •rey than the t'ither. I feel I'm daen ye a gold tarn In drawln' yer attenahun tae this telegram, sac as tae tram ye m time.

There's ac thing certainly, that Is, that this happen'd m America, an 1 ye ken whit »wfu* exaggerators they are besides whiles teUia' lees ; bit I keu" whit It Is tae hae seen a landieddy glowerln* at ye as if she wad like tae get ye oot the road fur seekln' malr pie, s? that I doot there's a ohanoe o' Mtlstee Slops ha'en glen wey tae his feelloa' accordingly.

A word tae the wlsa is suffaeolent.
