HIS DE VOTIONS.
[Froir Our Continent.)
The organ peals. the choir is singing;
I wonder if she knows I'm hero ?
Her thoughts, no doubt, are upward winging,
While mine sink, clogged with doubt and
'Tis she, of course; there's no mistaking
Her crowded, glossy braids of brown,
And that's the bonnet she was making;
I sat and watched her bead the crown.
How deft her fingers are, how busy !
All ! happy man within whose home
But. stay ! such thoughts they ma1ke me dizzy,
And have no place beneath this dome.
Far better should I ponder grimly
My faults comiitted, (uties ruisied.
How neat her glove is, and how trimly
It but tons round her slender wrist !
Ah ! vain and poor is earthly pleasuro;
No wonder that our sad hearts yearn
To sine rmore high an<l Listing treasure
They're sitting dowi; pholiaps she'll turn
Thank HIeaven , she sees ne ! She is flinging
A sweet reproachful glance my way,
Yes, <1ear, indeed I have been singing,
And now, iny saint, I mean to pray.
OVER THE SEA FOR PATSY.
A STORY OF 1RII LIFE.
There wasi. a young mnln living on the
3at11 Estate named Patrick MeDermt,
or "'atsy,'' as he wos generally called in
Ithe (011ut1y. Ile was an idle, rollick
ing, plensaut fellow, reln'rk:Lly good
looking, andIl a general favorite ani(loigst
the girls. His parents until their deathi
had held a small plot. of ground, and a
louse or calin atItahleld ; 1bllt not having
b een of anl indlustrious dispositionl, they
sank at once-as did thlousandsi of others
--when "the hiungry year" caio uponl
theme. When a firnl demand was made,
and a clear understanding como to, tliat
the rent nust 'he paid or the land aur
rendered, poor Patsy "11st, his Iresecel(
of mind,'' is lie expressed it, and frankly
collfessed le did not know what, to do.
"Well, Mcl)ernot," said I, as ho op
p eared one day in reply to a simnsilo0i i
from ray ollicr, "what. 1aro our going to
do? You owe four years' r'nt. Are you
going to settle the nnlomit ?"
'Couldn't youir honor erall mil,
' Patsy?' " replied lie, evading iy <ilies
tion with adroitness ; "it's a i indly sort
of name the neiglibors ha21s for 11e, andl
I'd know far better how to spake to your
honor if you was It) use it youirselt."
"I have no ob'(jectionl," I answered,
"and sl:tl bie happh s:y to call you Pid.;y
in future; lit thit loes not. alfect my
(1lestion, and 1 n1uist. know lt, Olnee. wiluit
ylou' intentions arE, a1 I calnot allow
you to remain in 1oss;essioll of your land
unless you c(omo1 to soio lettleueint

"Well, wvell, now,"obsetved Paks.
cratehing his head ini a pizzled inaiitie'.
" I lhave no ioney io ' pay up,' as you
(all it, and as f don't. wlit to put voiur
honor to any troulte, I suippose I umst
only cros the satysi liko the rest of them,
1111 eek my fon1'1011 in America. And
yet,'' he conlinued, in il altered tone,
"I think there is one girl. mnd (nly one
who wouitld trot in eariiest aftor me. hlt
it lenn't be heliedl, Ki'o must put up with
some other 1boy, for I'm not ab ile to Ipay

with a strang e, suppressed energy

Sham Butter and Cheese.
Professor Sheldon, in the Iowa Home.
stead, says : Can anyone tell what dairy.
ing is drifting to? \Ve hear of all sortat
of <queer nionstrositios, from lard-choese
to cotton butter. No man knows what
lie eats if ho buys it. Simulationl is the 1
spirit of tho ago, and no end of scionco
and skill is employed to deceive. A
clever imitation is what men prefer to
produce, and the public are led to do
vour. The simplicity of geluinoness is
out of the running, as things go in the
world. The public must cat what is
givenl them, asking no questions.
The oleomargarine men have done a ter,
rible lot of mischief, and ofl'al is the god
whom they delight to honor and exalt.
At all points they aim to cirunmvent the
dairyllle an1d swindle the public.
The taste of the people is degraded
by the sham imtter and cheese which
seems to be real. ,len's Stomacha 11ow
tdays; are sepu1lehres 'or strange alomi
1latiois which they ignorantly rather
than innocently swallow. This sort of
thing is leading them they know not
whither, and posterity will pay the
piper. It is no longer that which
coimeth out of, but that whicll goeth
into the mouth that defiles. Meats and
drinks of many kinds are not what they
pretend to be, and there is a good deal
of "tricks that are dark" in what passes
for dairy goods.
Whosse fault. is this ? Well, in a great
)art tihe dairyni:m's, for they have
spoilid good nilk. They have given an
opweitig for the shoddy men of the dairy,
who are growing rich out of oflhl. Tho
law com)n1placeitly lets men sell what
they like, :Ll:d the shum is, often enough,
better th;n the real one. Shoddy sells
well enough to he earefully made, and
so the makers of eoiinterfeit ltter alnl
cheese do flourish. )airymen who make
inferior iitter and cheese, no mat er
how real the goods may be, are out of
t1e rnning entirely. If only the palate
of the lllic is suited, it matters not if
the article he real or pretended, so care
less dairymen can hardly "make ends
meet and tie." Blit one thing is clear
the inakers of really first-class cheese
and bulitter can hold their own, and will
hhl their own against. the nefarious
St111' thsat is made in ani1y and every con.
IV . A w(''din,g-oult proicess is going ol,
an11d goods which atre mere siniulations
will take the pi1co so long occupied by
the products of milk that was spoiledl.
If, then, the oleolmargarine business, the
m(ltedl tallow and other less credital)e
things, shall result in 1brilnging abhout a
thorough reform in dairy methods, we
shall have reas<n after all to be grateful
to miii for whom few of us entertain
feelings thlt alplroach to respeet or
a'i. cltion. Ihit let the publie hrive fair
protcetion, let them know what hey
tuy ; theln the dairVnen will wii.---if
tlwy want to ; and if they don't the finilt
is their own.
I should rather incline to think that
nwre courtige is more gnieral amon

The fact is well understooil
that the MEXICAN 1U8
TANG LINIMENT Is by fir
the best external known for
man or beast. The reason
why becomes an "open
secret" when we explain that.
"Mustang" penetrates skin,
flesh and muscle to the very
bone, removing all disease
and soreness. No other Hli
mont does this. hence none
other is so largely used or
does such worlds of good.
