SAD CASE. We were visiting at the house of a where there were a number of young children. One of them had the measles, one the hooping cough. They were all receiving the greatest sj'mpathy and attention, while one little girl, about live years old, sat in the corner, crying bitterly. We asked her what was the matter ? She replied, bursting out into a heart-breaking gush of tears. " Evei'y one has got the measles and hooping cough, and I ain't got nothing, boo hoo hoo !"
