1MN FIRST CIGAR.
'Twas Just behind the woodshed,
One glorious summer day,
Far o'er the hills the sinking sun
Pursued its westward way.
And in my lone seclusion,
Safely removed afar
From all of earth's confusion,
I smoked my Brst cigar.
Ah I bright the boyish fancies
Wrapped in the wreaths of blue;
My eyes grew dim, my head was light,
The woodaod round me flow.
Dark night closed In around me,
Rayless without a star.
Grim death I thought had found me,
And spoiled my rst cigar.
Ali I pallid was my noble brow,
The waning night was late,
My startled mother cried, in fear,
" My child, what have you ate?"
I heard my father's smothered laugh,
It seemed so strango and far,
I know he know, I knew he knew
I'd smoked my first cigar.
A Story of a Screw.
A singular accident happened to. a
family named Hollscher, residing on
Pearl street, near Market, a few days
ago. The father died about a week ago,
and was buried at Lone Mountain. On
Saturday morning the mother visited
the cemetery to decorate the grave with
flowers. During her absence the chil
dren were at home under the care of a
servant 'il. A little boy 3 years of
age, in playing about the room, got hold
of a small brass screw which ho pusled
into his nostril. The girl in fltrm tried
to get it out, and in doing sc pushed it
further in. Then she ran and called
some of the neighbors in, and they, in
trying to get hold of it, pushed it out of
sight. They continued their (foerts un
til the screw-head was; beyond reach.
The mother was seint for, 'and after a
night of alarm the child was taken to
Dr. Laine, who, after trying to withdraw
the screw with surgical instruments, put
the little sufferer under the influence of
alesthetics, and cut open the noe to
prospect for the screw. He succeeded
in (hsfiguiring the child, probably for
life, but failed in the object of his
search, and the child was taken hom to
die, under the belief that the screw was
working up into the brain. It lingered
along for three days, suffering appar
ently only from the cutting of its faco
and nose, and on Tues(lay morning
passed the screw without distress, and
then it occurred to thoso interested that
the screw, instead of going up into the
brain, had merely followed the air pass
age from the nos to the roof of the
mouth, and had thero beenl swallowed.
Ca(stor oil effcted what the sealpel of
the surgeon failed in, and tho child is
now recovering. -ASan Francisco Chron

What Yanderbilt 'ight Do with R
Some one has made avery curious
calculation of what Mr. Vanderbilt could
do with his money. William H. Van
derbilt's income from his investments in
$51,000,000 4-per-cent. Government
bonds is re-resronted at $5,000 daily
which is $2i.25 per hour, $3.47 per
minute, or over 5 ceits per second. As
suming that he is paid by the second,
he cannot possibly spbnd his money, as
he could not select his purchases and lay
down the prices fast enough. He could
not throw it away ; to pick up, cast, re
cover, pick up and cast again would take
him two seconds, and, if he worked all
through the twenty-four hours without
rest, he could not dispose cf one-half his
income. By living economically, saving
up for four years, he could, placing his
5-cent pieces side by side, make a nickel
belt around the earth, or by converting
his savings into 1-cent pieces and mount
ing them in a pile, he would, in twenty
Sears, erect a road to the moon tnd have
500 to invest when he got there.
Should his amusement take a charitable
twist, he could, out of a year's receipts
donate to every man, woman and chili
in the United States 20 cents and have
money left over. Other vast possibili
ties occur to the glowing fancy of the
calculator. In one day he could go to
8,000 different circusses, eat 10,000
p ints of peanuts, drink 5,000 glasses of
lemonade, and have money left to get
his boots blacked. He can afford t(
have 500,000 shirts washed in one day,
and on the (lay of his death his income
will buy ten first-class funerals.-thaca

"I had been sick and miserable so long
and had caised my huIsband so much
troulble and exl)ene, no one seemed to
know what ailed me, and I was com
pletely disheartened and diiscouraged. In
this frame of mind I got a bottle of Hop
Bitters and used them unknown to my
family. I soon began to iim)rove and
gaiicd so fast that my husband and fam
ily thought it strange and unnatural, but
when I told them what had helped me,
they said 'Hurrah for Ho) Bitters I long
may may they prosper, for they have
made mother well and us lap)y.' "'-The
On the prairies, far from the woods,
where log cabins are impracticable, the
sod house is made as a substitute. To
build one, a man goes on to the prairie
with his team and breaking plow, and
turns a straight smooth sod sone three or
four inches thick. This sod is very tough.
When suflient has been turiied over
the sod is cut into squares and laid upl in
a wall as though it were flat stones. Door
frames and wmidowv frames are set in as
the wall rises. When the height of one
sto)ry is reachedl a small timber is set up
at each end, and a ridlge-pole placed upon
them, and the sod wall built up or into
the gable. On this ridge there rest smaller
poles for rafters, and on these sod is laid
in courses, the courses overlapping each
other like shingles, " so many inches to
the weather." The only money out lay
is caused by wvindows and doors. If wvell
built, the house will stand for years.
Inside one may "'sweeten to taste." In
the ruder huts the walls are left uncov
Credl. In others some are covered with
cheap ClothI, some with b~uilding paper
Rudl wall pape(r pasted over it, while some
are' plastered and made as comfortable as
any room neced to be. Once inside, you
would not know but you were in a stone
or brick house. Tihien you will some
times find elegant furniture, the remains
of better days, sometimes a piano and
the skill to play it; choice b)ooks, which
indiente literary tastes; the latest pa~
pers and magazmies, which show that the
inmates keep up with the times. Indeed,
it is surprising to know how many families
of refinement and cultured taste, being
unfortunate, make a fresh start in life on
the vast prairies.
Free and Easy Manners.
When girls assmne a swaggering man
ner upon the street, use coarse expres
s101ns, and1 greet each other with a rough.
"hello!" they cannot expect much de
ference from their male friends. A lady's
manner always controls that of a gentle
man; and if she does not respect'herself
lie will not respect her. When boys and
girls, young men and maidens, are al
lowed to fall into the absurditites of low,
foolish, meaningless talk, it seems to
dwarf them intellectually; they can find
nothing of interest or importance to ay,
and1 therefore make up for sense by f il
ingg every sentence wvith needless exclama
tions, exaggerations, or misused adjeo
tives. It requires much patience to be
compelled to listen to half a dozen folks
and hear the strange, inappropriate use
of languiage. They will assure each other
that it is "awful" warm, or the concert
''awful" nice; the sermon ''horrid"
dull; a young lady is "awful prett ",'
b)ut her dress "horrid ugly;" the teacher
"horrid strict;" such a young gentleman
who called had an "awful swell" team
of fast horses. If young people could
hear themselves as others hear th em, it
might result in their reformation.
