ROCK OF AGES.
Seated in the new church yonder,
Listening to music sweet,
As it came from splendid voices
Filled my heartwith joy complete.
Round the organ first they gathered,
Oh bow well irst they understand
Waiting for the given signal
With their music book in hand.
Then the Insrumnt performer
Softly touched each Ivory key,
And I knew that she was playing
"Rock of ages cleft for mo.
Then the alto and soprano,
Were the first to greet my ear,
As they raised their tuneful voices
Came the words distinct and clear.
Suddenly the bass and tenor,
Breaking forth in melody,
Sang along with such precision.
"Let me hide myself In thee."
Commencing slow the tenor solo,
With the words in plaintive tone,
I shall ever hear him singing
"Thou mist save and thou alone."
Next in order came the duet,
"In my hand no price I bring."
And I yet can hear them saying
"Simply to thy cross I cling."
Once again they sang in quartette
"While I draw this fleeting breath,"
Followed softly, like a whisper,
"When my eyes shall close In death."
Oh bow grand the words whieb follow,
"When I rise to worlds unknown,"
There to sing thy praises ever,
"And behold thee on thy throne:"
Thus it ended, but their voices
Still kept ringing in my ear,
And imagination rises
Till I fancy they are near.
I shall never forget those voices,
Not that pleasant, well spent hour;
And 'twas ihen Iknew that music
Surely had a magic power.
In God's ho word 'tis written,
When we jolnthe heavenly bands
We shall sing far sweeter music
In that house not made with hands.

BILL ARP
IN THE KITCHEN-MRS. AnP AS A
HOUSEKEEPER-GETTING SOME
THING TO COOK AND KNOWING
HOW TQ COOK IT-TROUBLE WITH
COLORED COOKS.
----o
From the Cultivator and Dixie Farmer.
"How do you get along at your
house ?" I never meet a nabor or
an old friend now-a-days but what
I want to ask him that question.
I don't mean to ask it like I ask
"are your folks all well," but I can't
he1,p thinking about the cooking
and washing and domestic affairs.
The field and the farm are -all right.
We can get plenty of labor at fair
prices, but there are a few prob
lems right round a man's house
that have not been solved yet.
They are mighty big problems too,
for the women are concerned in 'em
-our wives and our daughters, and
[ would like to see this cooking
and washing business settled down
on some substantial basis. There
is nothing settled at my house. How
do you get along at yours? We don't
care so much about the cooking,
for my daughters can do it with
lacrity and do it nice, and nobody
has better eating than when they
turn loose with plenty of supplies.
[f they have plenty of butter and
sugar, and eggs, and lemons, and
ard, and chickens, and all the vege
etables, and good dry wrood for the
stove, the dinner will be all right
and no mistake, but then they don't
want to cook all the time. Some
imes a fellow or two comes crusing
around and the girl's can't leave
em prematurely, and so my wife
she thinks she must cook supper
and I don't wan't her to. She has
fit enough. Old man Colder joined
he army at the first of the war. He
was old but he was a red-hot rebel,
and said he wanted to fight some.
So he fought all over the first battle
f Manassas, and tore round fu
riously and hollered to the boys to
ome on, and that night he laid
own and thought he was going to
ie. He sent for Dr. Miller, and
says he, "Doctor, if I am well
eough to travel, I want to go home
in the morning, please give me a
ischarge, I've fit enough." Just
so my wife has fit enough. I don't
want her to have to work any more.
I want her to come and to go when
she pleases. I want her to have a
carriage and a fine pair of gentle
hcses; and when she wants to ride
let her ride. I want her to have a good
time the rest of her days. She is
etitled to it as much as any soldier
was ever entitled to a pension. So
of course I don't want her to have
ton cok Now, if we lived in town
udcould get fresh bread every day
it wouldn't make so much differ
nce, but we don't. Somebody has
got to make the biscuit or the egg
bread, and get up a little something
and so among us all we do get up a
spper and get along. But what I
mean to say is, there is nothing
regular, nothing on a rock founda
tion. Some days we have lunch
and late dinner, and no supper,
and some other days we have three
reglar meals, and some other days
we don't have much of anything,
and so it goes on year after year,
ad,.nothing settled, for the girls
are gone a good deal and they have
iht sart commany when at home
and sometimes we can hire a darke'
for a day or .two, and they wan
big pay and lotsbf scraps to tak<
home to their young ones.
But after all, the cooking don'
bother us much, and we can alway,
get along if we have something t<
cook. There are more folks tha
want vittels than cooks, and I an
thankful we have always had more
than our share. There is anothe
little problem right along here, an(
that is the clemning up and scour
ing the floors and the piazzers, an<
the brass. kettle, and the wate:
buckets, and the cook vessels, an(
making lye soap, and doing a heal
of little things that the darkeys al
ways did and the white folks nevei
would do if they could help it. Bul
the biggest trouble at my house i
this everlastiffg washing business
I don't reckon there is a woman ii
the world that loves clean thingi
and clean clothes any better that
my wife. She is bound to havc
clean sheets and clean curtains, anm
clean pillow cases, and clean gar
ments of all sorts, and it just takei
more towels to do her than a Corsi
can. And so the wash woman i
everlastingly a grumbling about the
big pile of clothes, and not long ag<
when she took the basket out of the
buggy she asked me if I was shorn
that one of.the children hadn't gol
tied up in the bundle, for it wai
powerful heavy. Well, we begur
at one dollar a week, and then sh
raised on us to one dollar and :
quarter, and now she says she ms
have one dollar and a half, and :
reckon its right, for the darkeyj
that help her have struck for highei
wages, and the good old soul ii
doing the best she can. She is oni
of the old-time darkeys, and whei
they are gone I don't know wha
will become of the problem. Thi
old stock still wash, and scour an(
cook, and make baskets, and shucl
collars, and foot mats and brooms
but when they are all dead an(
gone that is the end of all that sor
of business, for this new generatioi
wont do it. I'll bet there ain't i
new nigger in the State who wil
ever make a split basket. Thei
don't know how, and they don't in
tend to learn.
But after all, there is some kin(
of comfort for most everybody. I
the washing is a bother we musn'
forget that it always was a bothe:
even in slavery times. The wash
ing and the ironing was a bothe
then, for .he rain would come an
the winds- would blow, and ther
was too mu-h starch or too little
and if there is anything in this lifi
that gets along smoothly all thi
time I don't know it. We old folki
can weather the storm I reckon, foi
we have 'got use to trouble, but thi
young set haven't. Nabor Free
man and his good wife amuse me
they haven't got used to it yet, anc
when the cook leaves or the wasl
woman gets on a strike they jus
pack up and go to "ma." .What
blessed thing it is to have a ma t(
go to-a good old fashioned ma
who will lighten the burdens of life
and give aid and comfort to theil
children. "I'm going to ma." Hap
py is the child who can say that
It is mighty nice to get married ani
set up house-keeping, and give i
big dining occasionally, but whex
the young mother gets fretted ani
tired and 'the baby is sick, it is i
world of comfort to say, "I'm going
to pack up andgoto ma?" Folki
never get too old to be careless o:
a good father's and a good mother'i
caresses. Fond parents are aboul
the greatest treasure jn this life
and it humbles us to lose them.]
never like to see children leavi
them and go away off to Texas, oi
Arkansas or California. I wouli
rather stay by the old folks ani
comfort them and let them comfor
me. I would rather live hardsan(
be near them than to go afar off ani
get rich. BI.L Axtr.

CHASED BY A LOG.
EXPERIENCES OE THE MICHIGAN
RIVER DRIVERS.
Few people have any adequate
idea of theangers and discomforts
attending life of a "river driver."
Four months of the year, and these
during the raw and chilly spring,
l when he is working from daylight
to dark in the water, his clothes are
I often wet and frequently frozen for
a week at a time. If he falls into
l the cold river in the morning, he
must keep on with his work till
night. Often the heat of his bed
-for the riverman's etiquette
teaches him that clothes are to be
worn, not hung on a chair at night-is
only sufficient to thaw out the gar
ments without drying them. I
talked with one of these river driv
ers. Every bit of information was
given grudgingly, though earnestly
and with candor. He said:
"I have followed the river every
spring for twenty years and there
are mighty few streams in Michi
gan that I haven't gone to the bot
tom of.
" Dangerous business? Well,
that depends on what part of the
job you are working at. If you are
the cook, there ain't much danger,
unless the boys find pebbles in the
beans, or mice in the blackstrap.
But if the crew are 'breaking a jam'
and the old man sets you to 'hitch
ing on' things are liable to be pret
ty lively. What is 'hitching on'
and a 'rollway?' Ever see a high
bank at a river?' Well, loggers
draw their logs during the winter
to the highest bank of a stream
they can reach, and roll them down
it onto the ice below, piling them
up by thousands and tens of thous
I ands. In spring these piles of logs
have got to be loosed so that they
will float down the river. That is
I what is called 'breaking a jam.'
t Now about 'hitching on.'
"Sometimes they 'break ajam' by
prying out the logs with canthooks
I and sometimes they run a' rope
across the river. A yoke of oxen
- are 'hitched on' -to it and it is
thrown around a log. The oxen
I are then started, and 'snake out' the
r log. Why is that dangerous? It
often happens that one log is wedged
in such a shape that it holds from
fifty,to a thousand others and to
save time this log must be hauled
I out first. Then if the logger isn't
minding his concerns when the pile
starts, the whole lot is onto him in
a jiffy. Did I ever meet with any
accidents? Yes; but the most ser
ions accident I ever met with didn't
turn out badly. We were 'breaking
a jam' at the highest rollway on the
- Manistee river. There were mil
lions of logs on the bank. and it
I was pretty ticklish work. I hadn't
as many turns of rheumatiz then as
I have had since, and I called my
self as limber a man as ever dodged
a Norway. I was'hitching on,' and
after I had been at work a while
the boss, who was giving orders
'from across the river, sung out 'Do
-you see that loose log up near the
-top?' I looked up. The rollway
was aboue 160 feet high, and there
was a big log ten or fifteen feet
from the top that appeared to be
loose.
'I started up over the loge with
my peevy in my hands. The log
Iwas about twenty feet long, and I
shoved iny peevy into it to sort of
see how much work it was going to
be to loosenit. I fotind out, I tell
you. I no sooner touched her than
she started like a flash of lightning
down the rollway. There was no
chance to run around the end of
the log, and it was too high tojump
over, so the only chance I had was
to turn and give her a foot-race.
IWe were, as I said, near 150 feet
from the brink. The river was'
about sixty feet wide, and was pret
ty deep. That was in my favor, if
I could-only reach it. I didn't stop
-ate chances or pick nice
places, but I just made
jumps for alllIwas worth, and be
fore I'd fairly light away I'd go
again, and you bet that log was
-right after me. -I could feel the
-wind from it, and it seemed every
StimelIstruck that it was on to me.
-I don't believe my heart beat, or
'that I' breathed, going' down that
rollway, and I thought of every
'tear' I had ever been on and every
mean thing I had ever done. I
kept ahead all right until I got with
in about twenty feet of the river,
and then she struck me. I was in
the air, and when the blow came I
went like a cannon ball out into
the river and -to the bottom. As I
came up a dozen of the boys grab
bed me and brought me ashore.
-They had been watching me from
the other bank, and when they saw
me shoot out into the stream they
rushed into the water to bring out
what they thought would be my
corpse. But I wasn't hurt a parti
cle, though it took some time to get
- my ibellus' into running shape again.
SThat log struck me on the hips anb
Sthrew me fully fifty feet, and that
was what saved my life, for iflIhad
landed near the bank that log would
have crushed me."
"That was a close call!I"

SUNNY BIDE- SHOE$.
TRICKS BY WHICH THE POOR ARE
SWINDLED-DECEPTIONS IN FO'
WEAR.
"You newspaper fellows have had
your whack at a great many frauds
of the day, but you have thus far
over-looked the commonest and in
some respects the meanest of all
frauds, that in shoes. Why don't
you expose it? - The speaker was a
middle-aged man of natty dress,
evidently a member of the craft
known as commercial travelers, and
one addressed a reporter for the
Commercial. The latter, overlo6k
ing the flippancy with which jour
nalists had been classed as "fellows,"
asked for plans and speciflcations
as to frauds in shoes, and was en
lightened in this wise:
-It would take too much of
your space to go into minute de
tails as to how frauds are perpe
trated on the purchaser of shoes, so
numerous and ingenious are they.
I will therefore merely tell you
about some of the ordinary ways of
getting up cheap shoes of deceptive
appearance. Good leather of all
kinds, as you are aware, costs
money, and a great deal of it, in
comparison with prices twenty-five
years ago, and a great deal of in
genuity has been expended in de
vising methods for making a little
of the tanners' product go a great
way. Sole leather is the most cost
ly of all, and naturally there is
more fraud in the soles of shoes
than in the uppers. In a great
many ofthe cheaper grades of shoes
now sold the soles consists of a
very thin sheet of leather for the
bottom, just enough to hold it to
gether, and the space between it
and the so-called insole, which
usually consists of a strip of mus
lin, is filled either with leather
shavings pressed together or with
common straw board. The wearers
of this kind of leather goods should
always be careful to.avoid the sha
dy side of the street, as dampness
is ruinous to this sort of shoe, caus
ing the biggest part of the sole to
crumble to pieces.
"The uppers, which the sellgr
always assures the purchaser are
genuine calf-skin, or split cow-hide,
and wear little if any better thah
the soles. The heels are in strict
keeping with the other parts, con
sisting of a thin outer rim of leath
er and a slender bottom of the
same material, the remainder being
made up of scrap leather. Half
the ready-made shoes worn in Pitts
burg, I don't hesitate to assert, are
shams of one sort or' another, in
part or in whole.
"The falsification is not confined
to men's shoes; oh, no. There is
fully as much or more fraud in
women's footgear. There is 'peb
ble goat' made out of blackened
muslin, with soles of 'plaited hash,'
as pressed scraps are termed.
"Sheepskin is skillfully dressed
to imitate- kid, and many of the
shoes made of it and sord for sewed
work are merely pasted together
and dissolve, so to speak, the first
time they are wet. This sort of
fraud sets hardest on the poor, and
especially the unreasoning poor,
who must econoinise from force of
necessity, and always baiy things
that are 'cheap' without much refer
ence to their quality or durability.
Shoes at half price are always a
temptation to the poor, but if they
would give the matter a little study
they would soon discover that one
pair of honest shoes, sold at a fair
price, would outlast three or four
pairs of the other kind, though
when first put on the latter look.
just as nice or nicer than the bet
ter kind."-P ittsburg (Pa.) Corn

PORER FLAT.
It was apoker party in Thomp
son street, and a big jack pot had
been opened, There was evident
ly big hands out, and the bets and
excitement ran high.
"Look hyer, Gus, whuffer yo'
rise dat pot?" exclaimed Mr. Toot
er Williams.
"Nebber yo' nine-yo' call, ef yo'
isn't 'fraid-yes, yo' call-dat's
all !" retorted Gus, sullenly.
"I won't call ! I rise yo'~ back,"
said Mr..Williams, whose vertebra
were ascending.
"I rise yo' ag'in,"retorted Gus.
And so they went at each other
until chips, money, and collateral
were gone. Mr.Williams conclud
ed tocall:
"What yo' got, niggar, dat go do
all datrisen' on? What yo' nohow?"
Gus laid down his hand-ace,
king, queen, jack, and ten of clubs.
'-Is dat good?" he inquired, be
guing to size up the pot.
"No, dat's not good?" said Mr.
Wilhiams, reaching down in his
boot-leg.
"What yo' got, den?" quiried
Gus.
Mr. Willias looked at him
fixedly.

NONE BIG MELONS.
I was talking with an old planter
in the Arkansas bottoms about
watermelons, and he threw away his
"chaw" and remarked:
"Wall, I dunno. I was into wate
mellyons four seasons, and lost
money ?"
"Didn't you have good crops ?"
"Right thar was the .trouble, sir,"
he replied. "The fust year I kinder
let the niggers run the business,
and Pl be chawed, sir, if six or
eight of 'em didn't break their backs
lifting them ar 'mellyons into carts
to tote 'em to the landing ? Eve
got six cripples for life to take car'
of on account of that crop."
-"And the second year?
"Well, I run the patch myself the
second year. I thought Pd see
what old Crittenden county could
do when she had a fair show, and
the result was party nigh what you
call a calamity. I picked out a
thousand melons for shipment to.
Cairo, and it took six negroes and
a span of moles to get each one
down to the landing. I had 'em all
sot up in a row, ready for the
steamer, when plong cum a-lot of
refugee niggers from the bottom
lands and squatted on me."
"How ?"
"Why, every head of family pre
empted one o' them big mellyons
for a cabin and went to keeping
house inside of it as grand as you
please."
"You don't tell me !"
"And to show the ingratitude of
the race, let me tell you what they
took the seeds and dumped ,'em
into tlhe river right thar,' and star
ted a sand-bar which obleeges the
boats to land three mileb farther
down the river. I recon that might
be money in mellyons if you could
git 'em North, but you can't stand
around with a shot gun and tell a
nigger.who has been overflowed out
that he can't come the cabin dodge
on you, You see, it's kinder human
natur' to feel sorry for'em.-Detroit

to the class of professional men
who are neither visionary nor al
together sordid. The third type
indicate people whose interests and
instincts are mostly material, people
who have a genius for business
and who have a high appreciation
of every thing that pretains to body
by use an4 comfort. Each finger
no matter what kind of a hanidit is,
has a joint representing . each of
these types. The division of the
finger that is nearest the palm
stands for the body, the - middle
division represents mind, and the
highest joint spirt of soul. If the
top joints is- longer than the other,
it denotes a character with too much
imagination, great ideality, and a
leaning toward the theoretical
rather than the practical. When
the middle joint of the finger is
long, it promises a logical calcula
ting mind-a very comm sense
kind of a person; and when the
lowest joint is longest, it indicates
a nature that clings more to the
luxuries than to the refinements- of
life, a mind that look. for utility
before beauty. If they are nearly
alike, and especially If the joint of
the fingers eqnal the length of the
palm, It indicates a well balanced
mind.-New York Homse Jounal.
