FRIDAY JUXE 2, 1876.
WHO ABE THE POOR ?
Who are the poor? Not always those
Who have the least to show;
Nor are they always found among
The darkest haunts of woe;
For one may wear the richest dress
And roll In wealth's galore.
And still In reason's perfect sight
Be poor, aye, very poor.
The brightest skies may ever shine
Above the mansion proud,
And he who dwells within its walls
With want may ne'er be bowed;
The sweetest music ever heard
May reed his listening ear,
And mirth and pleasure fill the cup
Of all the gladsome year.
Yet poor Indeed must be the man
Who owns such Joys as these.
If e'er his heart be coldly closed
To others' miseries.
And vain Is all his store of gold,
If selfishly he lives,
And, always reaping harvests new,
No charity e'er gives.
Real poverty Is In the heart;
Tls want of love tor man;
Tis failure to perform a good,
To bless whene'er you can;
Tls lack of love and lack of faith
In Right and Its decree.
That -the greatest virtue one can own
Is loving charity.
So let us, then, do all we can
To help each other on,
And show that wealth of mind and heart
Which lives when gold is gone;
And let us keep this truth in view
Where'er our steps may lead:
A man may be a millionaire
And yet be poor indeed.
An Occasional Friend.
Mr. and Mrs. Oliver (J. .Burton, as
tbelr wedding cards bad announced the
young couple a year before, were seated
at tbe breakfast-table with an undenia
ble expression of discomfort upon both
faces. Oliver himself, a fine-looking
man of about tweuty-four, looked out of
temper. Amy, his pretty blonde wife,
looked harassed and unhappy, but not
"I wish I could please you, Oily," she
said, with a piteous droop in tbe corner
of her moutb. "I do try, and if you
would only give mean hour of warning,
"An hour of warning !" broke in OH
ver, in a petulant tone; "that's just
like a woman. Mow can 1 tell wnen
am going to meet a friend I should like
to invite to amner lesterciay, lor in
stauce, I -met Xed Hay ward quite unex-
pectediy in tbe car, and he's only in
town a few days. Of course, I asked
him to dinner, and found pork and
"But you like pork and beans."
"But you should always provide some-
tbing else. JNed detests them."
"But if Mr. Hayward had not come,
tbo something else would have been
wasted, as we all like pork and beans."
"I cannot understand why it is I al
ways find some mortifying deficiency
whenever 1 bring any one Here to dine.
Last week John Hall found nothing but
mutton cuops and potatoes."
"It was washing day. You see, Oily,
we really cannot anord to have a com
panv dinner every day, and "
"There! there! always the old Story,
"We seem to afford other things very
well. I don't mind the cost. I never
stint you in house-keeping funds."
"No, Oily; and if you really do not
mind tbe cost, I might "
"Manage it any way you like, but do
let me find a decent meal when I bring
home an occasional friend. There, kiss
and be friends."
Amy was willing enough to put up
her pretty lips for a kiss; but after her
lord and master bad lelt tue House, sue
carried a perplexed face for a long time.
She did want her husband's home to be
the most perfect spot on earth in his
own eyes, and faithfully tried to make
it so. iiut tbe little wire bad been
brought up in a family where a limited
income ruled all expenditures, and she
knew well that her husband's salary re
quired careful management to keep
tbem out ot debt. JJeui was ber horror
while Oliver thought but little of a bill
here and there, having, as yet, had none
large enough to be an annoyance.
Amy had proved herself a treasure in
bouse-keeplng neat, orderly, and econ
omical and ber husband was justly
proud of his wife and his home. But
his reckless hospitality was a sore thorn
in Amy's side. She was glad to see his
gentlemen friends, when she knew they
were coming to vist her, and she took
an innocent pride in spreading before
them her choicest cooking and daintiest
dishes. But she seldom knew they were
coming till Oliver put his head in her
chamber door, or tbe kitchen, to tell ber
Tom, Mick, or .Harry, bad come horn
with him to dinner, and they were in
hurry. And it did seem to poor Amy as
if an evil fate possessed Oliver to select
tbe very worst days for such visitations,
The meal that on a busy day Oliver
would have eaten with a keeu relish
looked poor when be saw his fastidious
friend, who boarded at the hotel
partaking of it. And yet, as Amy said
bis salary drd not warrant a company
dinner for every day.
Then there were washing days, when
something must be cooked that could be
quickly served: Ironing days, when.
they were alone, Oliver declared pork
and Deans a dinner bt for a King; tbere
were days when yesterday's big ioint o
meat must be eaten cold, warmed up, or
wasted; days wben the range would not
bake well, and the dinner In prospect
nad to oe aoanuoned, and a hurried meal
prepared on the top of the fire; In short
days that all house-keepers know by ex
perience are the very last ones when
they want to see strange faces at their
tables, let, if Amy was all ready on
six days, aud all in confusion on the
seventh, it was surely on that verv sev
enth day that Oliver had a friend unex-
pectediy to dinner.
It was of no use to tell him in th
morning; the sight of an old comrade1
face drove the warning completely ou
of his mind.
So, on tbe morning whereof I haveal
ready written, Amy went about ber
daily duties with a heavy heart and
troubled face. But tbe postman left ber
a letter, alter reading wbicu sue sua
denly cleared up wonderfully, and
seemed Immensely relieved.
"I'll try it," she said. "Perhaps Oil
ver win realize men wuat it costs."
But no word of her mysterious resolu
tlon passed her lins when ber husband
came home, nor did she allude to her
letter. 'Ihere was no stransrer at her ta
ble for three or four days, but 6he waited
patiently, knowing Oliver would soon
find n friend for her to make her first
experiment in her newplau. She was
always very careful about the annoin
mentsof her table, trusting nothing to
the servant in that department, & she
was not airaid ot any guest nndinir tii
order or neglect there; but Oliver's idea
of guest dishes had been a sore trouble
"Amy," he called, about a week after
tbe important conversation recorded,
"Will Ferris has come home with me.
Now don't tell me we have nothing fit
to set before him."
"Can you give me half an hour?"
Amy asked, cheerfully.
"Yes no more. We are going to 'the
"I'll be ready."
Oliver beamed with satisfaction, as he
motioned his guest to a seat at tbe table.
A small turkey, browned to perfection,
was the leading dish; various vegetables,
dainty selection of sauces and pickles.
and a most, delightful pie, finished the
"IKuewAmycould do it lfshe tried."
thought Oliver; "and now that she fiuds
I am In earnest, sbe win manage to give
my friends a decent meal, if they are
not heralded twenty-four hours in ad
vance." Not a week later, another friend was
invited on the spur of the moment, ar
riving when the dinner was actually
served. But Amy asked for only a few
minutes, and magically there was served
an exquisite repast, perfectly cooked.
Again and again Oil ver came home with
friend, and a delightful certainty of a
good dinner. Amy Burton never com
plained now of his hospitality, crave bis
friends a smiling welcome, and Oliver
iounu nome more cnarming than ever.
Two months passed, and the occa
sional friend came verv often to dinner.
The slight restraint Oliver had felt was
quite removed by the new and delight
ful change in Amy's management: and
yet the variety and quality of the com-
panydisnes never tailed. uutMrs.iiur
ton, consulting her account book, un
derstood that the time was rapidly ap-
proocning wnen unver must understand
how this magic machinery was kept in
order; must see where tbe mysterious
delicacies that appeared so promptly
So, one evening, wben husband and
wife were enjoying a quiet tete-a-tete,
tbe servant handed in an envelope di
rected to Mr. Burton, saying :
The boy will call in the morning."
"Boyle!" said Oliver, reading the
printed advertisement in the corner of
the envelope; "why, it Is the restauraut
Keeper around tbe corner."
"les," said Amy.
"But I never owed the man a cent,
and here is a bill," cried Oliver, opening
tbe folded paper in tbe envelope.
"I think you will find it all right,"
Amy said, very calmly, though a red
sport burned in each cheek as sbe spoke.
"All rigbt !" said tbe amazed Oliver;
the man must be crazy. One turkey
and dressing, five dollars; one lemon
pie, seventy-hve cents; cranberry sauce-
sweet potatoes, and parsnip fritters,
'That was the day Mr. Ferris dined
here," said Amy, without lookiug up.
"One pair ot roast ducks, hve dol
lars," read Oliver; "currant jelly, one
That was tbe day Mr. Hill dined
Oliver gave a long whistle.
"So that's the way you did it?"
"Hum! quail, grouse, chickens."
"You did not suppose I procured and
cooked sucb tilings at a minute's notice,
did you " as Amy, demurely.
ViNo but "
"You didn't suppose thev came down
the chimney ready cooked, like Santa
Claus' gifts, did you?" she asked, still
looKing intently at ber sewing.
well, not exactly that, but"
"You told me I was not to mind the
"les; but What is the expense?'
turning over the paper. "By Jove! itis
one nundred and twenty-live dollars."
i es, that is right. I kept an account
of the items."
Tbere was a long silence. Oliver was
trying to persuade himself that it was
impossible his habit of promiscuous bos
pitallty was really so expensive; but tbe
items stared mm in the face, and a very
slight effort of memory recalled nearly
every dish. Jones had complimented
tbe lobster salad; Smith bad been en
tbusiastic over tbe mayonnaise of fowl
Hayward bad pronounced this paii
equal to Delmonieo's: aud Curtis had
protested he never ate such pigeon pie
With a deep sigh. Oliver said :
"Since it is all right. I suppose I must
pay It; but was It quite fair, Amy, to
spring such a mine on me? I did not
realize the expense, it is true; but thi
bin, coming in so unexpectedly, will
reany namper me terribly."
"AO, it won't, Oily. I only wanted
you to understand how expensive and
trouDicsome it is to uave unexpected
company. Only let me know, and I
will gladly prepare for your friends, at
oniy a small additional expense."
"JBUt tuey won't pay this bill."
"No, but this will." And Amy laid

"Yes, I do see it. You have brought

So Amy lost her grievance, for Oliver

THE GRANGER CHURN,
A new Invention,
Makes the best of butter
With the least attention.
Now all good dairymen,
Who would a reputation eain.
Should make their bulter
In the Granger Churn.
It makes more butter
From the same amount of cream
Than any other Churn
That ever was seen.
And It makes it so yellow.
With such excellent taste,
It Is the pride of the seller,
For it sells in such haste.
The grocers all want It
The butter I mean
To supply all their customers,
From laborer to queen.
It will churn In five minutes,
I am happy to say,
And does not waste time
Like the old-fashioned way.
Those that havo tried It
Speak in complimentary terms
And say they will use It
In prelerenco to all other Churns.
