THE REWARD OP BRAVERY, OK TI lie
"Will you ever give up these trips, Ter?
ence? It is so lonely staying here at nights;
and besides, I am fearful that some one will
break in and rob the house, and murder us
all. I never say my prayers and go to bed
without, trembling for my own lifo and that
of the children;" and the little woman
hung upon the arm of the strong man, and
begged him, with tearful eyes, to give up
his wandering life, (that of a peddler,) and
settle down. .
"As soon as I have gathered enough to?
gether to buy me a bit of ground, or what
would bo better still, to emigrate to Ame?
rica, that blessed land where, as the song
says', 'There's bread and work for all,'and
the bright sun is always shining, I'll gladly
giveup tho pack,' for it is no easy work at
"Only think of the money you have in
the house nbw.htJgband dear! Surely there
is enough tb take us' across the sea; you
and me and tho children; and Bridget, too,,
if she likes to gb.
Bridget waa tho servant girl, who helped
the*wire of the peddler, sind - was her sole
companion when ho was away ; and her eyes
snapped with apparent delight when she
heard the proposition. But* she said
nothing, and tho ..master" continued :
"It is true for you, Kathleen, that I have
a matter- of ?100 or so,, which I will leave
for you to take caro of, and, if I have good
luci th\s trip1, T promise you to remain
either at home, or go to America, bless her.
It's a good friend she has been to Ireland,
and many is the poor soul sba has kept
from starving. So take good care of the
gold, and the children, Kathleen, you und
Bridget, until I come back," and he kissed
his wife and bright-eyed, curly-headed ba?
bies, gave Bridget the good-bye, shouldered
his. pack, and strode lightly away, whistling
His heard was light, his form strong, ho
had none of the fears of his wife, and was
looking forward joyfully to the time when
he would have a little home, " a pig aud n
sow and a patch of pratees," that would
belong to himself alone, and over which no
hard-hearted steward or non-resident land?
lord would claim control, although he
would willingly pay his tithes to the church.
Terence O'Brien was a peddler by profes?
sion, and what was called a "forehanded"
man. His family consisted of wife, two
children, a boy scarcely three years, a babe,
and the girl of nil work, Bridget. At the
start of his married life, he had rented a
littlo cottage that stood in a homely, out-of
the-way place; although ho had increased
his Btores, ho had retained possession of it
on tho score of ecouomy.
A brave, athletic man, and ono who feared
nothing human, he could not understand
the torrors of his wife, Kathleen-in fact,
gavo them but littlo thought. Besides, rob?
bery was a thing almost unknown among
the peasantry, and who would ever dream
of his having u large amount of money in
his wretched cabin? But it was not his
custom to do so; usually he deposited it in
A secare place. So he gave tho matter no
further thought than to promiso himself
that this should be his last journey, (if he
.did as well as he anticipated,) and tugged
?round, flattering the rosy-oheeked girls
into purchasing ii"IMI'issi V'"1' to dazzle
As the night began to draw near, and. the
wind io creep lound the comers of tba
chimney with a mournful sound, she bo
thought herself of the sovereigns her hus?
band had left, and taking the bag in which
they were kept from the cupboard over tho
fire-place, ehe caref"1,5 tucked it between
the beds, remarking at tuc same time to
Bridget, "that no one would e?'<?r think of
looking for it there."
"No," was the reply. "It would Le a
smart man, shure, that would be looking
under the childer to find gonld."
Thc tea over-they were early sleepers, as
well as early risers-the girl requested that
she might bo allowed to pass tho evening
with hor sister, who resided about a mile
distant, and tho anxious wife and mother,
although sorely loth to do so, at length con?
sented, insisting upon an early return.
"But you will bo back carly, Bridget?"
"Av coorae I will that same. But don't
bo after fretting." And the girl departed.
The lone woman buried herself as beat.she
might, until a late hour, hut tho girl did not
roturu. lu a fever of anxiety, she watched
until fully another sixty minutes had passed,
although it appeared to her liku half a day;
aud theu, couHidering it useless' to remain
any longer, sought her own pillow, after
commending herself to Him who is the
protector of tho widow and tho father of the
fatherless. But she had not closed her eyes
before there was a loud rap upon the door.
"ls that you, Bridget?" she asked hopo
"No," was the answer; and her heart
snnk like lead within her. "No, I am a
stranger; have lost my way; you must let me
"I cannot, cannot! I am a poor, lone
woman. I dare not let you in."
"Yon need have no fear. As there is a
God in Heaven, I will not harm you. I am

When was such au appeal made to an Irish
heart in vain? An escaped convict, and
wanting succor? That is the talisman to
open every door-to have the potatoe or bit?
of bread forced into tho mouth. Yes, it it
truly tbs open sesame to an Irish heart,
and it happeued so in this case.
Tho woman arose, opened tho door, gav(
the fugitivo food, and, having again receivec
the assurance that he, would do her no harm
but, ou the contrary, protect her; and, hav
ing seen him stretch himself upou tho flooi
before the remuant of the peat fire, she
again sought the side of her sleeping chil

At first her fears kept her awake. Thei

She did so, and was told that they knev

"Tell them," whispered tho strauger
"that you have a frieud with you, and tba
it will be dangerous for them to cuter."
"I have u friend here," she said, goini
close to the door, "A-man who .will protoc

I AYER'8 SARSAPARILLA,
F1 OR. PURIFY INO THE BLOO D.
THE rc ,,utation th ia ex?
cellent medicine enjoys, ?B
dorivi;d from its caros,
many of which sro truly
caBcs of Scrofulous disease,
whoro tho aystcm seemed
saturated with corruption,
have been puri?cd and
cured by it. Scrofulous af
Teetiona and disorder?,
which were aggravated by
tho Bcrofulous contamination until they wero pain?
fully afflicting, have hoon radically cured in euch
great numbers in almost every section of thc
country, that the public scarcely need to be in?
formed of UK virtues or uses.
Scrofulous poison is one of the most destructive
enemies of our race. Often, this unseen ami un?
felt tenant of tho orgauism, undermines tho con?
stitution, and invites tho attack of enfeebling cr
fatal diseases, without exciting a suspicion of its
presence. Again, it scorns to breed infection
throughout tiio body, and then, on sonic favorable
occasion, rapidly develop into ono or other of its
hideous forma, either on the surface or among
tho vitals. In the latter, tnbercles may ho sud?
denly deposited in tho lungs or heart, or tumors
formed in tho liver, or it shows its presenco by
eruptions on the skin, or foul ulcerations on somo
uart of tho body. Heneo, tho occasional uso of a
bottle of this SARSAPARILLA is advisable, even
when no active symptoms cf diseaso appear. Per?
sons afflicted with tho following complaints, gene?
rally find immediato relief, and, at length, cure,
by tho uso of this SARSAPARILLA: St. Antho?
ny's Fire, Rose or Erysipelas, Tetter, Salt Rheum,
Scald Head, Ringworm, Sore Eyes, Sore Ears,
and other eruptions or visible forms of Scrofulous
disoaso. Also, in tho moro concealed forms, aa
Dyspepsia, Dropsy, Heart Disease, Fits, Epilepsy,
Neuralgia, and tho various Ulcerous affections of
tho muscular and nervous systems.
Syphilis or Venereal and Mercurial Diseases are
cared by it, though a long time ia required for
subduing those obstinate maladies by any medi?
cine. But long continued use of this medicine
will cure tho complaint. Lcuccrrhaa or Whites,
Uterine Ulcerations, and Female Diseases, are
commonly soon relieved and ultimately cared by
ita purifying and invigorating effect. Minuto di?
rections in each case aro found in oar Almanac,
supplied gratiB. Rheumatism and Oout, when
caused by accumulations of extraneous matters
in the blood, yield quickly toit, aa also Liver Com?
plaints, Torjiidilu, Congestion or Inflammation of ?
the Liver, and Jaundice, when arising, as they
often do, from tho rankling poisons in tho blood.
This SARSAPARILLA is a great restorer for
tho strength and vigor of tho system. Those who
aro Languid and Listless, Despondent, Sleepless,
and troubled with JVVrooti?? Apprehensions or
Fears, or any of the affections symptomatic of |
Weakness, will And immediate relief and convinc?
ing evidence of its restorative power upon trial.
