[Suggested on seeing a little picture

The banks is all u-bustin,' Nance, and tilings

Tho people Bole fur credit whar they'd

An' winter's bringin' poverty to everybody's
Tho rioh kin stand it piolty well?hil's or

The workinmnn's thesufferci, Nance?he's

An' folks ar goin' to suffer whar they suf

You'll find perhaps, that they'll turn out
tho poorest of lliclut.
I've just been tliinkin,' Nancy Jane, nbout

hidden in tho woods;
,.T Our family's rich in life and health, but
poor in 'worldly goods;'
Wo hain't no fine lace curtins, or no enrpet

Bui the BUn is always Htiiilin' through the
window an' Ihw dour.
K, Our farm is small?we've got a spring an'
horses, hogs nn' cows;
.-.We've gids to milk nn' cnok an' sow, an'

Wo'vc got no gold in banks that bust, nor
owe no ninn a cent?
I tell you, Nan CO, the Lord is good, and wc
ehould feel content
We're plain an'honest country folks, an' we
know no -city airs;
Wc read the Bible every night before we
kneel in prayers;
Wo go to church on Sundays, Nance, an'
walk just like the6 rest,
An' live like Christnin people ought?wc

Our boys don't do like city boys, who from

The folks.ll rind the workin' ninn's the life

So long as he is able with his hi ns to till
The proud, aristocratic folks, who set in for

Their servant's gone, their horses sold,

The Prettiest Thing I Ever Heard.
A Good elder, whoso mind was al
most totally absorbed in making money
'Was reclaimed from the habit of Bleeping
in church as follows;
The preacher had tried many ways to
get the attention of elder A., but every
effort seemed to be of no avail. Ho
would occupy a seat very closo to the
pulpit, throw his head back on tho bench
and'take a nap us long as tho sermon.
This cold indifference greatly annoyed
tho wakeful portion ol* the congregation
and more especially the preacher. Know
ing the elder's great propensity for mon
ey, tho preacher pinned a bright greoo
back dollar to tho bottom of his uotos,
sod before advancing iu his discourse
he raised his no'cs iu full view of his
now half asleep hearer, audsoon got his
entire attention. During the sermon
the proachor kopt his notes in hie loft
hand with tho bottom or dollar side
turned toward the elder, who was now
all attention. The services ended, and
as usuki some asked Brother A. how he
liked tho merman. Says he. 'It was the
prettiest thing I ever (saw) heard.'?
