Who'll battle undaunted his honor to save,

A creature of folly, just woman in name,

Arthur Morton sat in a room in
his botel. He was a young man,
six and twenty, tall and slim frame,
with r. face of great intellectual
beauty, dressed in costly garments,
though his toilet was but indiffer
As the youth sat thus, his door
was opened, and an elderly gen
'Ah, doctor, you are moving

smile. '1 am an early bird.'

shoulder. 'But just tell me, Ar
tbur, bow is it with Crosby ?'
'Just as I told you. AlIl is gone.
'I don't understand it, Arthur.
'Neither do I,' said the young
man, sorrowfully. 'That Mat
thew Crosby could have done that
thing, I would not, could not, have
believed. Why, had an angel ap
peared to me two weeks ago, and
told me that Crosby was shaky, I

Arthur walked home one even- d
ing to the house of a wealthy mer
chant, John Melburno. It was a Y
palatial dwelling, and many a hope- a
ful, happy hour had he spent be
neath its roof. He rung the bell h
and was admitted to the parlor. b;
In a few minutes Grate Melburne 0
entered. She was only twenty. g

age to be Arthur's wife.. h

The ruined youth was upon the r
ocean, his voyage begun, bie du- ~
ties as laborer for his own daily
bread all fairly assumed. Ah !it t
was a strange life for him to enter
upon. From the ownership of im- f
mense wealth to the trade books
of a merchant ship was a transi
tion indeed. But, ere he wvent on
deck again, he had fully resolved c
that he would do his duty, comeC
what would, short of death. lHe
would forget that he ever did else
but work for his livelihood. With
these resolves clearly' determined
in his mind, be already felt bettor.
At first our super-cargo was too
weak to do much. Ho was very
sick, and it lasted nearly twol
weeks, but when that passed off,
and be could face the vibrating
deck with a stout stomach his ap
petite grew sharp, and his muscles
began to grow strong.
At first he craved some of the
many delicacies he had long been
used to, but they were not to be
had, and he very soon learned to
do without them. The result wvas
that his appetite become natural
in its wants, and his system began
to find itself nourishod by simple
food taken in proper quantities.
For years be had looked upon
breakfast as a meal which must
be set ont and partaken of from
mere fashion. A cup of coffee,
and perhaps a piece of dry toast,
or a seasoned or highly spiced
tidbit, had constituted the morning
meal. But now, when the break
fast hour came, he approached it
w itb a keen appetite, and felt as
strong and as hearty as at any
other time of the day.
By degrees the hollow cheeks
beca'me full, the dark eyes assum
ed new lustre, the color, rich and
halthful, came to tbe face, the
breast swelled with in.creasing
power, the lungs exp)anded and
grew strong, the muscles became
more firm and true, the nerves
grew strong, and the garments
which he had worn when he came
on board had to be let out some
inches in order to make them fit.
His disposition became cheerful
and bright, and by the time the
ship had reached the southern
cape of Africa the crew had all
i leaned to love him.
Through storm and sunshine,
irough tempest and calm,through
ark hours and bright, the young
iper-cargo made his voyage. In

COL. LIPSCOMB'S ADDRESS.
Worthy Master and Brothers and
Sisters of the National Grange:
When but very recently I was in.
formed that I- was expected to
represent you on this occasion and
reply to the welcome of the Wor
thy Master and brothers and sis
ters of New York, that I instinc
tively shrank from the overwhelm
ing responsibility of the position.
L foresaw that as great a contrast
would exist between the complete,
studied, finished, able and eloquent
address of the Worthy Master oi
New York, and any poor, im
promptu, extemporaneous effort
of mine would be as if a compar
son was drawn between this greal
Empire State, upon whose soil
we now stand, with her wide
spread bou ndarios,expansive lakes
mighty rivers,- great cities and
towns, her enormous agricultural,
commercial, manufacturing anc
financial initerests and wealth, hei
dense population and great politi
cal power, and the small, sparsely)
populated, weak and impoverishec
State from which I come.
But I in common with all thes<
brothers and sisters I am gla
thbat 1 am a recipient of this wel
come and participan t in thbis scent
-a scene so heavily fraught with
thought, sentiment and signifi
cance ; a scene that speaks volume.
in praise, vindication, defence o:
the great and good order under
whose auspices we now meet;
scene that gives a full and conclu
sive answer to the many imputa
tions and charges that have beer
made by our enemies, all througi
this broad land, that we are
band of secret con spirators, re
lutionists agrarians, communist:
and socialists, and I would not b<
surprised to hear that, availing
themselves of the name of on:
Worthy Secretary (Ireland) the2
should charge us with being "Fe
nians" fresh from "Erin's gree
isle." Those who did not charg
us with evil design and bad intent
amused thcemselves with ascertian
ing that the order was dead o
dying, declining and languishing
For an answer to such, point thec
here to New York, whic
although a "Wayne" is at th
h ead of it, is not waning but wvas
ing strong, proving that there i
nothing in a name and "that
rose by any other name woul
smell as sweet." If this is wan in
I would we had "Wane's", i
every State. No; with a Wayn
at the head an and Arm strong t
back him, the grange will not di
in this State. And it is as well t
now and here announce to thos
both in and outside our gates tha
this great and good order of Pt
trons of' Husbandry is not dead
is not dying; connot die ; must nol
shall not die ! Some of the mnoe
beautiful attributes and charactej
~istics of our order are here typ
fled and symbolized. Who ar
these men and women and wher
do they come from ? They corn
from every State, every degree c
latitude and of longitude that tre
vesstis gret union, tbey rt
present every variety of soil, cli
mate and production, both natural
and artificial, every type of social
status, custom and habit; every
phase of political affiliation, opin
ion and belief; every religious de
nomination, creed and doctrine.
But they do not bring these cre
dentials, nor can they.be by these
identified. When I reached my
home from the meeting of the Na
tional Grange in Richmond, Va.,
in 1878, I.was frequently asked as
to the political proclivities of vari
ous prominent men, but I had to
truthfully reply, "I do not. know;
I never thought to ask." So now,
you do not know, and do not ask
or. care. What credent.al have
they ? They do not bring broad
parchment, signed and sealed by
state or court officials. They come
with only a few simple "'words and
signs," and by'these you "know"
them. . What.mean these simple
credentials? They mean that each
and every one of these brothers
and.sisters. have, at their. homes.
wbere they. were either born or
have long lived, been tried and
tested, now, by having this peti
tion endorsed by good, and well
known members, referred to a com!.
mittee whose pledge and bounden.
duty was to inquire and report if
any, the slightest charge, or
shadow, could be found against
them as good, honest, respectable
and pure, passed by strict ordeal
"within the gates," they then were
pledged, as .'brothers and sisters,"
through sickness and health,
through weal and woe, through
prosperity and adversity, and each
to every other in Faith, Hope,
Charity and Fidelity.
With these credentials you,
brothers and sisters of New York,
know and welcome us, and as such
we receive it from you. How far
do these credentials surpass qui' es
of manuscript covered with broad
seals ? Sir, one of these New York
brothers transported with the
rapidity of steam to the utmost
confines of Texas, drop him with
strange faces and names amongst
strange faces and names, and soon.
as he makes these signs and speaks
those words he is surrounded by.
a band of brothers and sisters,
who rally around him, recognize
and aid him in every way, or take
him by the hand and carry him
without thd slightest shadow of
doubt. hesitancy or suspicion, to
their homes and firesides, and
place him in the family circle as
if one by birth and blood. How
-much have these ties and this or
der done to harmonize and unfy
the people of the various sections
of this country ; to obliterate and
remove all bitterness, hatred and
jealousy ; to heal the breaches and
-wounds of our late civil war ? So,
do you not see that in the near fu
ture it will remove all signs and
sembilances of sectionalism and
strife and make us a harmonious
and united people. Will not each
Sand every one of you join me in
Ssaying confidentially that if this
Sbenign order had been instituted
and established twenty-five years
sooner, then all the combined ef
forts of political parties ; the ma
chinations of dem~agogues, greedy
and hungry office holders ane seek
ers and mistaken statesmen could
not have raised brother's hands
against brothber's -lives or imbued
brother's bands in brother's blood.
That the bloody scenes of four
Syears would not have been enacted
and its history unwritten. Let
this scene impress upon us our
Simportant duties and heavy re
Ssponsibilities and let us strive
diligently to meet and discharge
them to thbe benefit and satisfaction
of those whom we represent.
eThe plan of this order was well
and wisely conceived ; its founda
tions deeply and firmly laid ! its
superstructure appropriately and
ornamentally built, .and as such
we have received it from our pre.
decessors ; let-us labor to, during
our stewardship, advance it some
'steps onward towards that perfec
tion we so confidently believe and
hope it will finally attain. Let us
not confine ourselves to routine
work upon ritualistic formulas
and ceremonies and technical
cha~nges in rules and by-laws; but
