(ioius Vp aud Coming Down.
Thia is a simple song, 'tis trae
My songs aro never over-nice
- And yet I'll try and scatter through
A little pinch of good advice.
Then listen, pompous friend, and learn,
?Never to boast of such renown,
For fortune's wheel is on the turn,
And some go up and some go down.
I know a vast amount of stocks,
A vast amount of pride insures; .
But faith has picked so many locks,
I wouldn't like to warrant tours,
Remember then, and never opurn
Tho one whose hand is hard and brown ;
For he is likely to go up,
And you are likely to go down.
Another thing, you will agroo
The truth may as well bo confessed
That " cod fish aristocracy," .
Is but a sca'y thing at best; .
And though tho fish is large and strong
May seek th? little ones to drown,
Yet fishes all, both great and small,
Aro going up and coming down.
Our ?ives aro full of chance and change,
And change, you know, is never sure
And 'twero a doctrine new and strange
That pieces high are most secure.
And though the fickle god may smile,
And wield the sceptre and the crown,
Tis only for a little while
That B goes up and A come? down.
This world for you and me, my friend,
Hath something moro than pounds and
Then let mo humbly recommend
A little use of common sense.
Thus lay all pride of placo aside,
And have a care on whom you frown
For fear you'll see him going up,
When you arc only coming down.
A THRILLING ADVENTURE.
The following thrilling sketch is fruin
an English Magazine:
" Father will have done the great chim-.
ney to night, won't he mother?" said lit
tle Tommie Howard, as he stood waiting
for his father's breakfast, which he carried
to hi tn at his work every morning.
" He said that he hoped all thc scaffold
ing would be down to-night," answered
the mother 41 ?ind ?hat will bc a fine sight ;
for I never like the ending of tliote great
chimneys; it is so risky for father to be
c; 32h, then, but I'll go and seek him,
and help 'cm to give a shout afore he
conics down," said Tom.
" And then," continued the mother,
u if all goes on right we are to have a
frolic to-morrow; and go in the country,
and take our dinners, and spend ail the
day in the woods."
411 lurrah !" cried Tom, as he ran off to
his f. ther's place of work, with a can of
milk in one hand and some bread in thr
ottler. His mother stood in the door,
watching him as he went merrily whist
ling down the street, and she thought of
the dear father he was going to, and the
dangerous work he was engaged in; an3
then her heart sought its sure refuge, and
she prayed to God to protect and bless
Tom, with i light heart, pursued his
way to his father, and leaving him his
breakfast, went to his own work, which
was at some distance. In the evening,
on his way home, he went around to see
how his father was getting on.
James Howard, the ft.ther, and a num
ber of other gentlemen, had been build
ing one of those lofty chimneys, which,
in our great manufacturing towns, almost
supply the place of other architectural
beauty. The chimney was one of the
highest, and most tapering that had ever
been erected, and tis Tom shading his eyes
from the slanting rays of the setting sun,"
looked up tn search of his father, his
heart almost sank within him at the ap
palling height. The scaffold was almost
down ; the men at the bottom were mov
ing the last beams and poles. Tom's
father stood alone at the top.
He then looked around to see that
everything was right, and then waving
his hat in the air, the men below, answering
him with a loud cheer, little Tom shout
ing as loud any of them. As their voices
died away, however, they heard a different
sound, a cry of alarm and horror from
above. "The rope, the rope!" The
men looked around and coiled upon the
ground, lay the rope, which before the
scaffolding was removed, should have
been fastened to the chimney for Tom's
father to come down by ! The scaffold
ing had been taken down without remem
bering to take the rope up. They all
knew it was impossible to throw the rope
up high enough, or skillfully enough, to
reach the top of the chimney, or if it
could, h would hardly bc safe. They
stood in silent dismay, unable to give
any help or think of any means of safety.
And Tom's father. He walked round
and round the little circle, and the dizzy
height seemed more and more fearful,
and ih? solid earth further from him. lu
the sudden panic, he lost his presence of
mind, and his senses failed him. He
shut his (tye? and felt as if the next mo
ment he must be dashed to pieces on the
The day passed as industriously as usu
al with Tom's mother at home. She was
always busily employed for her husband
in some way or other, and to-day, she
had been at work harder than usual get
ting ready for the holiday to-morrow.
She had just finished her arrangements,
and her thoughts were silently thanking
God for ;he happy home, and all these
blessings of life, when Tom ran in.
His face was as white as ashes, and he
could hardly p f his words out : "Moth
er ! mother ! he cannot get down."
"Who lad? thy father?" asked the
"They have forgotten to leave thc
rope," answered Tom, still scarcely able
to speak. The mother started up, horror
struck, and stood for a moment as if par
alyzed, then pressing her hands over her
face, as if to shut out the terrible picture
and breathing a prayer to God for help,
she rushed out of the house.
When she reached the place where her
husband was at work, a crowd gathered
around the foot of the chimney, and stood
quite helpless, and gazing up with faces
full of sorrow.
" He says he'll throw himself down."
Thee munna do that, lad," cried the
wife with clear hopeful voice ; " thee mun
na do that. Wait a bit. Take off thy
stocking, lad, and unravel ;t, and letdown
the thread with a bit of mortar. Dost
thou hear me, Jem?"
The man made a sign of assent; for it
seemed -is if he could not speak-and
taking off his stocking, unraveled the
worsted yarn, row after row. The peo
ple stood around in breathless silence and
suspense, wondering what Tom's mother
could be thinking of; and why she sent
him in such haste for the carpenter's ball
,c Let down one end of the thread with
a stone, and keep fast hold of the '..ther,"
cried she to her husband. The little
thread came waving down thc tall chim
ney, blown hither and thitherby the wind,
but it reached the outstretched hands that
were waiting for it. Tom held the ball
c. twine, while his mother tied the end of it '
io fte worsted tond, J<
" Now pull it slowly," cried she to her
husband, and she gradually unwound the
string until in reach of her husband.
" Now hold the string fast, and pull it up,"
cried she, and the string grew heavy and
hard to pull, for Tom and his mother had
fastened a thick rope to it. They watch
ed it gradually and slowly uncoil from
the ground, as the string was drawn
There was but one coil left. It had
reached the top. "Thank God! thank
God !" exclaimed the wife. She hid her
face in her hands, in silent prayer, and
tremblingly rejoiced. The iron to which
it should be fastened was there all right
but would her husbaud be able to make
use of it / Would not the terror of the
past hour so have unnerved him as to
prevent him irom taking the necessary
measures for his safety ? She did not
know the magical influence which her
few words had exercised over him. She
did not know the strength that the sound
of her voice, so cairn and steadfast, had
filled him with-as if the little thread
that carried him the hope of life once
more, and conveyed to him some portion
of that faith in God which nothing ever
destroyed or shook in her pure heart.
She did not know that as she waited there
the words came over him, " Why art
tho? cast down, O my soul, why art thou
disquieted within mel hope thou in God."
She lifted her heart lo God for hope and
strength but could do nothing more for
her husband, and her heart turned to God
and rested on Him as on a rock.
There was ? great shout, " He's safe,
mother, he's safe!" cried little Tom.
" Thou hast saved my life, my Mary,"
said her husband, folding hei in his arms.
"But what ails thee? thou seemeth more
sorry than glad about iL" But Mary
could not speak, and if the strong arm of
her husband had not held her up, she
would have, fallen to the ground-the
sudden joy after such great fear had
overcome her. "Tom, let thy mother
lean on thy "shoulder," said tie father,
"and we will take her home." And in
their happy home they poured forth thanks
to God for his great goodness, and their
happy life together felt dearer and holier
for the peri1 it had been in, and the near
ness of the danger had brought them unto
God. And thc holiday next day-was it
not indeed a thanksgiving day.
H liv Cannot a K ornau Become a
At the late anniversary celebration of
the Masons of Austin, Nevada, the orator
of the day thus discoursed upon this
much vexed question :
Woman sometimes complains that she
is not permitted to enter our lodges and
work with the craft in their labors, and
learn all there is to be learned in thc in
stitution. We will explain the reason.
We learn that before thc Almighty had
finished His work, He was in some doubt
about creating Eve. The creation of
every living and creeping thing had been
accomplished, and thc Almighty had
made Adam (who was the first Mason)
and erected for him the first lodge in thc
world, and called it Paradise No. 1. He
then caused all the beasts of the field and
fowls of the field to pass before Adam for
him to name them, which was a piece of
work he had to do alone, so that no con
fusion might hereafter arise from Eve,
whom He knew would make trouble if
she was allowed to participate in it, if
Ile created her beforehand.
Adam being very much fatigued with
the labors of his first task, fell into a
d jcp sleep, and when he awoke he found
Eve in the lodge with him. Adam, being
Sen:or Warden, placed Eve as the pillar
of beauty in the South, and they received
their instructions from the Grand Master
in the East, which, when finished, she im
mediately called the craft from labor to
refreshment. Instead of attending to the
duties of her office as she ought, she left
her station, violated her obligation, and
let in an expelled Mason, who had no
business there, and went around with him
leaving Adam to look after the jewels.'
This fellow had been expelled from the
Grand Lodge with several others, some
time before. But hearing the footsteps
of the Grand Master, he suddenly took
his leave, telling Eve to go to making
aprons, as she and Adam were not in
proper regalia. She went and told Adam,
and when the Grand Master returned to
the Lodge he found his gavel had been
He called for the Senior and Junior
Wardens, who had negiected to guard
the door, and found them absent. After
searching some time, he came to where
they were hid, and demanded of Adam
what he was doing there, instead of oc
cupying his official station. Adam re
plied he was waiting for Eve to call the
craft fiom refreshment to labor again,
and that the craft was not properly clothed,
which they were making provisions for.
Turning to Eve, he 'asked her what she
had to offer in excuse for her unofficial
and unmasonic conduct. She replied that
a fellow, passing himself off as a Grand
Lecturer had been giving her instructions,
and she thought it was no harm to learn
them.. The Grand Master thereupon
asked her what had become of his gavel ;
she said she didn't know, unless that fel
low had carried it away.
Finding that Eve was no longer trust
worthy, and that she had -caused Adam
to neglect his duty, and Jiad let in one
who had been expelled, the Grand Master
had closed the lodge, and turning them
out, set a faithful Tyler to gif.rd the door
with a flaming sword. Adam repenting
of his folly, went to work like a man and
a good Mason, in order to get reinstated
again. Not so with Eve ; she got angry
about it and commenced raising Cain.
Adam, on account of his reformation, was
permitted to establish lodges and work
in the lower degrees ; and while Eve was
allowed to join him in works of charity
outside, she was never again to be ad
mitted to assist in the regular work of
the craft. Hence the reason why woman
cannot become an inside Mason.
ECOXOMT IM ROOM.-A stranger, with
a fair damsel hanging upon his arm, ac
costed one of our townsmen at the post
office, thu3 : "Exc?seme, sir, but will
you bc kind enough to inform me where
I can find a minister? I find lodging
rooms are very scarce here just now, and
I think if I can find a minister we can
make some arrangements to get along
with less room than we now occupy."
He was sent, to Dr. Tyler.
WILSON is a "brick," and pretty good

his face wreathed in smiles, he has full
view of his guests and their wants. Turn

and observing his plate quite empty, he
asked: "Is there anything else I can do
for you, my lord Bismarck?" "Vis,

Anoiber Word of Advice to the
Wc have frequently endeavored to ad
vise the well-disposed Negroes in regard
to the true policy for them to pursue;
md, in this connection, we would espe
cially commend to their serious consid
eration the subjoined words of wisdom
taken from a speech recently delivered at
Holly Grove, Miss., by Hon. ALBERT G.
Most of you want land-. Allow me to
say in all sincerity, as your friend, re
garding you in your present position,
that is the last thing you do want. If you
had land, what would you do with it?
You would want provisions, plows, hoes,
axes, carts, mules, everything necessary
for carrying on a farm, and where are
these to come from ? Now I will tell
you what you want-first of all, you
want 2. year's provisions and clothing for
yourself and families, or the means of
buying them. Next you want horses or
mules, then you want farming utensils,
and last of all.and most important, some
thing to feed the horses or mules on.
When you get thus equipped, there will
be no trouble about the land. There is
land enough for everybody. If any one
or fifty of you will come to me next
year with the means of carrying on a
farm on your own book, I now promise
you land on your own terms.
But understand me. I do not agree to
put up houses and fences, sink wells, and
furnish mules, plows, hoes, wagons, fire
wood, provisions, clothing, and in short
everything to carry on a farm, and then
give you everything you make; that
would be setting the colter a little too
deep. But if you want land and nothing
else, come on, I am ready for you.
I have another little piece ot" advice for
you: When you get land, as you will
after a while, pay for it out of your hon
est earnings, and then you will feel hap
py in the knowledge that you have not
by fraud or force appropriated other peo
ples goods to your own use. I traveled
the other day, with a black man who rode
his own horse. He had bought and paid
for him, and I admired the honest, pride
with which he strode him. If he had
stolen him he would have slunk away as
a thief. I look to the day when every
honest man among you will own land,
and set down in full security at your
own door, protected by the majesty
of the law. But I warn you that
you must woo the coming of that day
by habits of indust.y, frugality md
earnest desire for peace and good will
A Burglar Trapped,
The New York correspondent of the
Troy Times gives the following:
I was informed of a case in which a
burglar was handsomely trapped a few
nights since. The house of a resident of
Brooklyn was entered about midnight,
and the occupant, Mr.-, awakened.
As he arose in bed he saw standing in the
room a rough looking man with a blud
geon in his hand. " What do you want
here ?" was the inquiry of Mr.
" I want your money or your life,"
suddenly replied the thief.
" You do, eh ?" exclaimed Mr.-, and
he slipped his hand under his pillow and
drew forth a splendid revolver. ''You
do, eh ?" he repeated, and sprang from
the bed, jjresenting the revolver at the
I lad offne thief. "Now, sir, I want
your money or your life," he continued,
still presenting his revolver.
The thief "comprehended thc situation
at a glance," and fairly " shook in his
boots," as he stammered, "I will go out,
"No you won't until you give me
your money-then you mr.y go !"
The thief drew from his pocket ten
dollars and handed the sum over.
"Now, I want your coat." This was
delivered. " Now, I will take your shirt
boots, and pants." The thief hesitated.
" If you don't take them off instantly, I
will shoot you dead where you stand
and throw your body out of the window.
The thief complied, and stood naked.
" Now you may leave," replied-, " by
the same way you came-through that
window, down the shed and over the fence.
And if I ever see you within fifty yards
of this house again, day or night, I'll shoot
you dead-so help me God !"
The thief took his departure, and when
-related his adventure next morning
to the family, who were entirely undis
turbed by it, he was obliged to exhibit
his captured clothing and money to. in
SHARP PRACTICE OF AK ATLANTA MER
CHANT.-A correspondent of the Chata
nooga Union tells the following of a
shrewd cynical Atlanta merchant :
I heard of a good thing perpetrated by
one of them, which was related by hi'n
to a New York " drummer." The mer
chant aforesaid is in the ready-made cloth
ing business, and he told the gentleman
from New York, that, when a customer
comes in, after letting him try on several
coats, he would say to him that he had a
coat which he had given a gentleman to
take home the night before, but he was
not satisfied with it and returned it. Per
haps it may fit his customer. " Now you
know," says he, all men are more or less
dishonest; so I put a pocket-book in one
of the coat pockets, which only cost me
thirty or forty cent3. Now when the
man tries the coat, he puts his hand in
the pockets and feels the pocket-book,
and ho buys the coat at once, for a con
siderable advance on the usual price ; and
he never comes back to see about it."

AN exchange in noticing thc presenta
tion of a silver cup to thc editor of an
other paper, says : H He needs no cup.

tains liquor, whether the neck of a bottle,
the mouth of a demijohn, the spile ot a
keg, or the bung of a barrel."
A fellow who had never enjoyed the
pleasure of being coaxed out of his money

tears, and consequently feels angry with
those'who Jpn vc, crustily remarks: "As
people sprinkle tho floors before they
sweep them, so wives sprinkle their hus
bands with tears in order to sweep cash
out of their pockets."

A Saratoga Story*
A melancholy tale is told here of a
young' man who came from New York
with a hundred dollars and a new suit of |
clothes. He carried himself in a lofty
and flamboyant manner, and never felt
himself so much like an aristocrat aa
when he was being brushed. He would
stand for several minutes, turning round
and round, apparently in an ecstacy of |
felicity, while colored waiters whisked
their brushes about his back and should
ers. He had obtained twenty-five dol
lars' worth of new quarters at the Sub
Treasury before leaving, and every time
he was brushed he handed one of these
forth from his vest pocket. He came
upon the Drew, and through the influence
of the stamps was much brushed on the
voyage. He took breakfast, of course,
at the Delevan, and from the moment
when he gave thc man a twenty-five cent
piece who brushed him on the steps, the
waiters rushed wildly after him with their
brooms ; at the office where he registered
himself; at the counter where he checked
his cane; going up stairs to breakfast;
coming down again ; at thc counter where
he got his cane again ; and all the way
out to the pavement. When he stepped
from the coach here he had a package of |
quarters ready in his pocket ; and there
was never another man so brushed at
the hotel. He stopped four times from
the door to the office enjoying the satis
faction of the brush, and distributing quar
ters. He was brushed up stairs and
down stairs, in the halls and in the
parlors, in the piazzas, in the grounds, in
the billiard rooms, and in the barber
shops. The waiters watched him, laid
wait for him, quarrelled with each other
for possession of him. And the more he
was brushed the more lofty he carried
himself. They never brushed him any
where but in the small of the back and
on the knees of his pantaloons. The re
sult was that in three days those portions
of his attire were threadbare, and the
next day a new hand ai the barber shop,
desirous of earning his money, brushed a
hole in his coat. The young man looked
at his pocket book and found that he had
only just money enough to pay his bill
and his fare home, to say nothing of a
new suit. Nearly all of his new stamps
had been spent solely on the luxury of j
the brush. He gave notice at the office
of his departure, but he was brushed to
the last. They brushed him out to the
stage, and one stalwart colored man,
growing facetious with him now that he
was leaving, gave a last stroke and torc
the young man's coat straight down the
middle of his back, ile put on his duster
and was seen no more. But the waiters,
counting their earnings, found that tn the
aggregate they had received $21.25 for
brushing that unfortunate young man.

A CUTE PREACHER.-The pastor of a
church, not a thousand miles from Bridge
port, says the Bridgeport Standard, was
once desirous that the Conference should
meet at his church. The people being
aware that they must board the ministers
during their stuy in the city, were quite
averse to their coming. At a meeting to
consider the subject of giving the invita
tion, the pastor stated the proposition and
"All those in favor of inviting thc
brethren here will say yes-all opposed,
He then proceeded to put the question ;
but not a yes was heard. Whereupon
he paused, looked around and remarked :
" Silence gives consent. The Confer
ence will come." 9
At thc concluding meeting, when a col
lection was to be taken up for the visiting
brethren, thc pastor told his people that
it was necessary for all the ministers to
behack to their respective flocks; that
they had no money to go with, and must
stay in their present quarters till the cash
was raised. The dilemma was either to
board their visitors gratuitously, or pay
their fares home. Wc can guess how they
solved the problem.
Not many days ago a young lady from
the country went into thc store of a mer
chant not a thousand miles from Colum

couple of chickens, at the same time
throwing a pair of live ones on the coun
"Why, yes," he replied; "but will
they lay there," meaning would they re
main on thc counter for a few moments.
" Lay there !" archly retorted the rustic
beauty; "No sir!" they lay nowhere.
" Sambo, can you tell me in what build
ing people are most likely to take cold ?"
" Why, no; me stranger in de town,
and can't cell dat."
" Well,"I will tell you-it is de bank."

AT the breakfast table in a "boarding

on this glaring sin, declared it as his opin

the Sabbath in New York on Sunday than
on any other day of thc week."
