A Temperance Story.
1 Once heard Dr. Day relate the occur
ence which produced in his mind the con
viction that drunkards could be rescued
rom the domination of their morbid
appetite. One evening, when lie came
home from his work, he heard that a
certain Jack Watts, the sot of the neigh
borhood, wa9 starving; with his wife and
three children. After tea lie went to see
him. In treating his first patient, Albert
Day hit upon the very method he has
ever since pursued, and so I beg the
reader will note the manner in which he
proceeded. On entering his cottage he
was as polite to him, as considerate of his
dignity as head of the household, as he
could have been to tiie first man of the
village. " Mr. Watts," said he after the
usual salutations, " I hear you are in
straitened circumstances.'' The man,
who was then quite sober, replied : " I
am : ray two youngest children went to
bed crying for food, and I had none to
give them. I spent my last three weeks
over there, pointing to a cros: shop op
posit, " and the bar-keeper said to me as
he took the money, says he, ' Jack Watts,
you're a fool, and so I am." Here was a
chance for a fine moral lecture. Albert
Day indulged in nothing of the kind.
IT . I tr ItT n
xio saia, "xur. watts, excuse me lor a
few minutes ; " and he went out, return
ing soon witn a Dasket containing some
flour, pork, and other materials for sup
per, "jnow, Mrs. Watts, cock some
thins: and wake vour children nn. and
give them something to eat. 1 11 call
again early in the morning Good night."
Perfect civility no reproaches no
lecture practical help of the kind need
ed and at the time needed. Observe, too,
that the man was in the condition of
mind in-which patients usually are when
they make tlio confession implied in en
tering an asylum. Ho was at the end of
his tether. IIo was to use the language
of the bar-room'- dead beat."
When Mr Day called the next morn
ing, the family had their breakfast, and
Jack Watts smiled benediction on the
man whom he had been accustomed to
regard as his enemy, because he was the
declared enemy of Jack Watts' enemy.
Now the time had come for a little talk.
Jack Watts explained his circumstances;
ho had been out of work for a long time,
and lie had consumed all his substance
in drink Mr. Day listened with respect
ful attention, spoke to him of various
plans for the future, and said for that day
he could give him a dollar's worth of
wood chopping to do. Then they got
upon the liquor question. In the soflen
ed. receptive mind of Jack Watts, Albeit
Day, deposited the substance of a rational
temperance lecture. He s ,oke to him
ki:idly, respectfully, hopefully, strongly;
Jack Watts' mind was convicted ; he
8'iid he had done with drink forever.
He meant it, too, and thus he was
brought to the second stage on the road
In this particular case, resting from
labor was out of the question and unnec
essary, for the man had been resting too
ltig already, and musts needs to go to
.vork. The wood was chopped. The
dollar to be paid for the work at the close
of the day was a fearful ordeal for noor
Jack, living fifteen yards from a bar-room
Mr Day called round in the evening,
paid him the dollar without remark, fell
into ordinary conversation with the
family, and look leavo. John stoo 1 the
test; not a cent of the money found its
way into the till of the bar keeper.
Next morning Mr. Day was there again,
and, seeing that the patient was going on
well, spoko to him about the future, and
gliding again into the main topic, dwell
ing much upon the absolute necessity of
total and enternal abstinence IIo got
the man a place, visited him, held him up,
fortified his mind, and so helped him to
complete and lasting recovery. Jack
Watts never drank again. lie died a
year or two ago in Maine at a good age,
having brought up his family respectfully

A little boy five years of age was
sent to a grocery store on some trifling
errand, and while there his bright eyes
lighted upon a barrel of pippins exposed

In goii'g out he took one and returned to
his mother munching it. 44 Where did
you get that nice apple, Willie '( " in
quired his mother. " Dot it at de docery,"
replied the boy. "Did the man give it to
you?" "No, I took it." "Why, my
son, fJTat was naughty; you should not
take apples or anything elso without per
mission. " But nobody saw me." -Oh
yes, my son, there was one who saw you."
Who t" " Why, God saw you." The
bov stopped a moment to consider, and

To persons unacquainted with the slate

The Lehigh Valley Railroad Company
have acquired, by purchase, the coal lands
of the Locust Mountains Coal and Iron
Company, the Coal Ridge Company, and
one half the coal lands of the Trevortan
Company. The consideration price paid
for thoso acquisitions amount, it is said,
to less than one and a half millions of
dollajs, payable in first mortgage Lehigh
Valley Railroad bonds. The object of
the purchase is, doubtless, the securing
of the coal tonnage to tho Lehigh and
Mahanoy Branch of the Lehigh Valley
Railroad, and also to the Lehigh Valley
mail trunk, from tho Sliamokin coal re
gion. A few days before the Presidential
election, a disciple of the Seymour school

around, and as the gentleman aforesaid
stepped up to deposit his vote, it was
plainly hinted to him that he had violated
the law in such cases made and provided,
and had forfeited his right to deposit his

Dr. Cook called attention to the following
Hygienic subjects, which elicited discus
sion. The deleterpus use of cast iron
stoves, where a seperate fire pan is not
used in their construction. Carbonic
oxide gas is effused, poisons the air,
whence headache, vertigo, and a whole
train of aliments result ; better use more
and warmer clothing on the body, and
fewer stoves, and more freely unhoused
air. uood warm tianneis worn next the
skin need to come into more general use
to guard tho human system agaiust tho
sudden changes of temperature in a vari
able climate ; especially useful in the de
veloping state of the body, and to ward
off tho ills of declining life, that all will
be benefitted thereby. Another greatly
needed reform is the substitution of
earth closets for the horrible vaults
and wells now in common use, which
load the air of our towns and cites
with poisonous products. This is dea
lined to be the greatest hygienic re
form of the age ; our present state of
civilization demand it, and it is the duty
of the physician to encourage it The

F. Jouoan, Secretary of the Common
Clovkr as Manure. In an article
published in the Report of the Agricul
tural Department, a correspondent says,
the cheapest, most easily attainable and
best of all manures for a corn crop, is a
dense mass of red clover, either in its
green or ripened and dried state, plowed
down three or four inches only ; just deep
enough to prevent wastage, and yet near
enough to the surface of the ground to
be acted on by the sun's heat and air.
In its decay, clover thus affords certain,
active and constant nourishment to the
young nnd expanding roots of the corn.
Both com end wheat grown over a clover
lay are very generally free from diease
and insects, and better in yield aril
quality than crops grown on or with
animal manures. But to secure this, wc
must manure the clover while yet young,
with liberal supplies of plaster, lime, or
fine well-rooted manure spread broad-cast
over the growing plants.
