There Is no death) Tho dust we tread

To feed tLe hungry moss they bear;
Tho fairest leaves drink dally life

THE BOY AND THE BAG.

III the Old I'asliloncd Way.
There are few bights moro suggestive ol
hos.ful patience than that of a boy sitting
on a bag of wheat that has fallen from his
horic. Ho starts, to mill joyously. The great
event in tho life of a young country boy if
to Iw entrusted with a milling
exjioditioii. Ho sleeps xery little
tho night liofore tho journey, so nc-.
tive is his mind concerning tho prospective
trip. His father helps him on tho horso, and
he sits ou tho bag, as proud of his position at
a king U of his throne. Every object along
the lovely road intorests him. Ho plucks the
blooms from the dog-wood, and almost fall
oft" w hen tho horse reaches around to bit
liiiusolf. Ho rides into tho creek to let tin
horso drink, and spits at tho minnows tliat
swim around. After ho goes up the bank
on tho iipjxsito side of the stream, and
pursues his course along the road, he
notices with alarm than the bug is slipping
to one Mile. He sits still further overtc
make the Uig balance, but yet he i' not sat-i-fnil,
for it keeps on sliding to ono sMo, and
at last it fills olf. Ho can not n.tia!n his
tears, and though lu knows that he cnr.not
lift ono end, yet l.e tugi at tho lag. Tho old
horse snorts, nibbles the glass and lashes the
boy across tho eyes with his tail. "Whoa,
you old fooll" and tho disconsolate little fel
low weeps afresli. He cannot leave tho Uig,
fearful that some one will steal 1L Ho must
wait the tardy comiugof a passor-by. He
heais tho sound of hoofs and he li-teii.-v in
tently, while the swelling buds ol
his biqra burst Into full bloom.
He is uoomed to disappointment, for the
hoi-ae hts no rider. Thunder rumblos in the
distance and ho will get wet. At last ho see
(in olJ negro coming along. His heal t ls.ut.1
high w ith hop". Tho old negro step aside
mid Likes a by-path. Tho boy shouts. The
old negro does not hear him. Auothei hour,
that seems an ago, draws itself along. He
hears a wagon. Ho is almost wild witli joy.
The driver, though a surly fellow, lifts tlie
lig up, and the boy, happy and thankful, i
rescued just ut a time when ho does m
think that he could stand it a niomoi

THE GOOD OLD TIMES
When Per litem Offlcen. Took Thins
Washington Cor. Philadelphia Record.
"In the better days of the republic," taid
an old olllcial, "wc civil servants did not
have to work so hard as we do now. In fact,
before the xvar it was considered quite unofll
cial to do much xvork during office hours.
The idea of a Tier diem official of any sort
working as hard as some nicn who are paid
by the day work now xvould have lieen con
sidered lurfectly absurd. I remember my
friend Street, a very elegant Virginia g-:itle
man he always played with red checks
w as once given some Federal employment at a
er diem, lie had asillow-faced schoolmaster
from Maine, who liad been living on SI50
a year, as an assistant Street w ent oft" one
night soon after his arrival on a regular old
fashioned Time.' He visited all tho bars and
'lianks' in town, aud patronized them nlL
He dropjied all the money ho had left into
the tiger's mou th.
Tho morning after lie sobered up ho walked
into his office. The Tankee nssistant came
forward smiling and Iwwing. 'I've finished
nearly all our work, sir,' ho began, showing
Street a great mass of manuscript; 'I'-o leen
working nine hours a day, sir; I can w ork a
little faster and longer, sir, if you desire.1
Street xvas siieechless with rage. 'Tear that
htuir up,' he said to tho jioor clerk, 'and throw
it in tlie fire, and don't let me ever hear
again of your writing more than n page and
n half a day. Why, you're taking the bread
out of tho moutlis of my wife and children.'
The clerk soon learned wisdom. They staid
in office for years. After n while the clerk,
who had never seen w much money in his
life, came to Street to sa-: 'I don't know w hat
to do xvith my money, sir.' 'I know u liank,'
said Street, 'where a wild time grows;' and
tlmt night he showed tliat lienighted Yankee
all the faro games in 'Washington. The
Yankee came on so rapidly that he was soon
borrow ing money ut 'J jier cent. jer month."
