The Lost Ring.
Tlie summer was in its glow and
prime. The hilltops were wreathed
in amber mist; the river murmured
softly through its willow-fringed
shores; the woods, all rifled of their
leafy honors, were like cathedral
aisles, carpeted with gold, and rus
set aud crimson layers, and the nuts
had never been so plentiful up in
Squirrels, school-boys, picnic par
ties and tramps all had their pick and
choice of the nuts, and yet, with
every midnight frost and sunrise gale,
the ground was strewn afresh with
them, and any adventurous stick,
thrown up into the branches, would
bring down a shower of new treasures.
'Hut why don't they bring these
nuts to market? cried Laura IJerit
age. 'Why don't we have them in
'Ain't enough of 'em, miss,' said
Job, a Bturdy, young farm laborer.
'Besides, they ain't what you'd call a
Just then Mr. Austin, the hand
some young curate of Comberdale,
came up, and held out his hand to
Miss Heritage with a smile.
'I am glad to see you here,' said he.
'And lam so glad to be here!' said
'How do you like a country life?' he
'Oh, so much?' cried Laura. 'Ma
ple Farm is so delightful, and Mr. and
Mrs. Jennings are like two antiquities
out of a curiosity shop. And mamma
would give untold gold for the china
that they use extravagant creatures
on the table every dayl I could have
cried outright last night, when rhu'be
dropped a cup and broke it. And we
have open wood lires on huge hearths,
and the logs are so deliciously fra
grant as they burn, and ' 1
'And little Phoebe?' said Mr. Austin,
smiling 'doesn't she strike you as a
'The niece?' said she. Do you know
I have scarcely looked at her? I like
pretty people and pretty things, and
that child is such a figure!'
She spoke carelessly, quite unaware
and very possibly she would not have
cared had she known it that Phoebe
Jennings was in the sunken glade just
below, where the yellow sunshine quiv
ered, and a noisy little rivulet leaped
over noisy stones on its way to the
Phoebe was big eyed and solemn,
with face and hands almost as brown
as the nuts, and hair that waved and
crinkled all over her head.
Mr. Austin had always had a pleas
ant word and a smile for her; Miss
Heritage was the realistic of her ideas
of an angel and now they are laugh
ing about her.
Phoebe stood a minute witli her
great eyes brimming over, her lower
hp tightly clasped by pearl-white
'Job,' said she, at last, !niy bucket is
full. I think I'll go home.'
'What, a'ready?' cried Job.
'Yes,' said Phoebe. 'May'be, Aunt
Jennings wants me. I'd better go.
Mrs. Jennings, cutting a piece of
gold clear honey in the comb, out of a
glass box, was astonished at the breath
less apparotion ot her little niece.'lly
ing headlong clown the steep grade of
the apple orchard.
'Bless me, child!' said Mi's. Jennings
'Didn't 1 tell you you could stay till
'I I didn't want to,' said Phoebe.
And she rushed up-stairs to her
room, and cried until sho could cry no
Miss Heritage, 'liked pretty people
and pretty things,' and she (Phoebe)
was 'such a figure!'
She had not known it before. She
had thought her calico dress, with the
black stars upon it, was beautiful; and
she had innocently rejoiced in the
brown ribbon bow for her neck, that
had bean her uncle's own present.
And then Phabe looked in the little
six-inch glass, and realized how brown,
hovf unkept, and gipsy-liko she was
how dissimilar was her dress from Miss
Heritage's soft laces and floating rib
bon'.oops. And Mr. Austin, in whose
bible-class she was

Phcobe. 'No, aunt, please!' to Mrs.
Jennings' kindly call. '1 don't want
'No tea!' said Mrs. Jennings, in
amazement. 'Child, does your head
'Yes,' said Phcebe, who had never
known what it was to suffer an ache or
pain in her lit. 'Yes! Please please

Two day later Mia HeriUga ram

My pearl ring," said she: 'it's gooa.
Now MiM Heritage pearl ling was
not an ordinary trinket, but a cottly
E carl -shaped paarl, set in a blender
oop of braided gold.
Fantier Jennings set down bis coffee
cap snd stared; Mrs. Jennings mured
a little cry; I'tia-be who was bringing
in a plate of hot toast from the kitchen,
'Iesr me! said Mrs. Jennings,
where can you have dropped it?
' never dropped it at all,' said
Insure, positively. 'It has been taken
stolen from my room!'
But, Miss Heritage,' said the farm
er's wife, mild'y, -who is there that
would steal it?' 4
'1 don't know,' said Laura, excited
ly. 'I know that it has been stolen,
and I wish you would send for the po
lice at once.'
Of course there was no one upon
whom suspicion would fall but I'lnrbe
poor, friendless, orphaned l'lui-be!
Not exactly friendless, either, for Mr.
Austin tiuietlv declared triat it was
quite impossible that she could have
committed a crime like this.
'I have known her ever since she
came to Maple Farm,' said -he. -She
is a member of my Bible-class. She
never did it!'
And Mrs. Jennings valiantly assert
ed that 'she wouldn't never believe no
such thing of Pa-be, as never yet so
much as took a pin as wasn't hers!'
'You are ail infatuated about that
girl,' said Laura, petulantly. 'Who
else could have taken it?'
'But surely' Miss Heritage, pleaded
Mr. Austin, 'you will not prosecute the
poor thing? You will give poor l'lm-be
the benefit of tho doubt?'
I do not see that there is any doubt,'
said Laura, stiffly; 'and my pear) ring
must be returned.'
'I will pay you the value of it my
self,' said Mr. Austin eagerly, -if '
'You are very much interested in
tho culprit,' said Laura, with a curl of
her full, red lips; 'but that will not an
swer the ends of justice at a'l. No.
She stole the ring let her confess, or
The curate looked at Laura with
mute surprise almost with disgust.
Attliat moment, when Miss Heritage
sat, like a female Fate, on the sofa,
and Mrs. Jennings was comforting
poor little Phcrbe up sairs, Job came
Found your ring?" said he.
'No,' cried Laura.
'Here it is,' said Job.
And shure enough, the great pear
shaped pearl lay glimmering, like a
drop of moonlight, in the homey palm
of his hand.
Where did you get it?: breathlessly
demanded Miss Heritage.
Job chuckled, and looked rather
" "'Sent a booshel o'nuts to my cousin
Jenny,' said he. 'Jenny was always
partial to nuts: and she writ back to
me what did I mean by sendin' her
a pearl ring in 'em?' Didn't I know
she was keeping company with Peter
Crane? And 1 writ I didn't send no
pearl ring; and this mornin' this came
back by post,' nodding his head at the
jewel. 'And the very minute I set
eyes on it I knowed it was the one
Miss Heritage wore that afternoon at
Laura turned scarlet.
!1 must have dropped it 111 ihe nuts,"
'Of course you did, said Job. 'Won
der you never thought of it afore?"
So the awful shadow of suspicion
was lifted off l'hu;be; and Miss Heri
tage even condescended to murmur
some sort of apology before sbo went
But it's too ridiculous the fuss they
make about that girl,' said Miss Her
itage, viciously. Bichard Austin
will never forgive mo for daring to
No; it was quite true, Mr. Austin
was completely disenchanted with the
dimpled and rock hearted Laura. And
when he did marry, three years after
wards, llio bride's name was simple
For tho dark-eyed child lial grown
into radiant womanhood, and Richard
Austin knew that she was a diamond
fit to wear on any man's breast.
We clip the following from an ex
change. If the opinion of Dr. Smith
amounts to anything, then many chil
dren in Napoleon are victims of cruelty
which is administered through a mis
taken motive. The doctor says:
A child who is carried in arms is be
ing constantly trained to balancing its
head and shoulders, and that such
infants arc sooner able to sit alone and
creep or walk more vigorously than
those who in the continued supine
posture of the baby carriage fail to re
ceive their muscular exercise. There
is also increased appetite, with im
proved digestion and nutrition. One
of the evils liable to ensue from the
constant use of the baby carriages is
the jarring and concusion of the deli
cate brain and spinal cord of tho infant
created by bouncing tho baby carriage
over gutters or up and down the curb
stones. This evil, Dr. Smith contends,
is quite as serious to the infant as the
concussion of tho spine, tho result of
railroad travel, is to a full-grown man,
the nervous system of tho child being
easily impressed by jars.
John Kelly appears to have given up
all hopes of getting anything from the
new Administration, and refers to Gar
field's "ramshackle Cabinet." We hardly
expected Mr. Kelly to bolt so soon. -Enquirer.

Senator Thurman signalized the
cloaint Jayb of his Senatorial career
iy taking a hrm stana against the
Itiver ana Harbcr Rill. -I know.' ht
said, 'there is in the air an idea of a
new departure for the Democratic
party, and that hereafter we are to
march ander the banner of 'the old
flag and an appropriation;' that we are
to go for getting the largest possible
sum out of the public Treasury. I am
an old man.' he continued, 'and an old
Demtcrat, but 1 can not train in thee
new ways. This bill is not a right bill;
every member 011 this floor. I believe,
(eels that it is not a right bill. I am
not in favor of benefitinjr Mr. A. B's
chances of re-election to the House of
Representatives by voting to improve
some trout stream in his district so
that a cattish can swim in it.'
The bill is a woneerful revelation of
the possibilities of American geogra
phy. Mr. Thurman challenged Mr.
Hansom, of North .Carolina, who had
charge of the bill in the Senate, to
indicate the locality of Centenia Creek
and Lillington Kiver, which were
credited to North Carolina with liberal
appropriations. Turning to the ap
propriations for his native State, the
same Senator said : 'I ought to know
something of Virginia, but upon my
honor, I never heard of Nomoni Creek,
for which $2,000 are given in this bill.
I never heard of Pagan Creek, which
gets $10,000, and 1 doubt whether my
learned friend of North Carolina,great
geographer as he is, can tell me where
Totuski river is.' In the House Mr.
Chittenden tried in vain to find out
from the Committee on Commerce
where Snmpawamus Inlet was, to
which this bill gave 5,000. Mr. Lo
gan called attention to the fact, that the
bill proposed to make the Savannah
river navigable for push-boats by cut
ting a channel sixty-four miles long,
thirty feet wide and three feet deep.
This push-boat navigation is to be
made possible by blasting rocks and
dredging gravel in the channel for this
distance, and in constructing wing
dams to contract the water-way. This
is all to be done by Congress iinder its
constitutional authority to regulate
commerce. 'Oh! no,' exclaimed Mr.
Thurman, indignantly, 'that will not
do. Is commerce the swimming of
tadpoles? Is commerce the disporting
of frogs in the ponds of North Caro
lina? Is commerce deepening the
French Broad that a good big sucker
can swim over it? Not the least bit in
The items in the river and harbor
appropriation bill for the improvement
of streams which are not to be found
on the maps suggest some strange pos
sibilities in the way of geographical
conundrums in the tuture.
The standard puzzles in ireography,
such as 'how would you go by water
from San Francisco to Chicago?' and
'how do you bound Madagacaj;?', may
now be laid on the shelf, and in their
places a series of modern geographical
conundrum- substituted, something
like these: 'Where is the Tchefuncte
river, for which Congress appropriated
1,500?' 'Through" what States or
Territories does the Yagaina river (ap
propriation 810.000) flow?' -Give the
average depth and the length and
width of Obed's river (appropriation
$3,000).' 'How far is the Cheesequake
river (appropriation $1,000) from the
Rocky Mountains?' 'Does the Neabsco
river (appropriation So, 000 flow north
or south, east or west?' 'From what
distinguished citizen of the Republic
does Archers Hope (appropriation $5,.
000) derive its name?' 'Who was Arch
er, and what was his hope?' Certainly
Congress has opened a new field for
geographical study to which the atten
tion of all teachers and pupils of our
public schools is respectfully called.
The Sarcasms of Actual Life.
No wit nor satirist can be so bitterly
sarcastic as are many of the occur
rences of actual life. . Nature and
fortune outstripped Timon Timon;
thev do what the fiercest cvnicist can
not express. Navier Aubryet, at one
time an editor of the Paris Moniteur
do, Soir, and author of the 'Feemo de
Ymgtcinq Ans' and other books, be
came stone blind some time before his
death, which recently took place. He
ha long been afflicted, like poor
Heinrich Heine, with disorder of the
spine, and was finally carried off by it.
He had for years previous to his de
cease worked incessantly at a manu
script which ho had regarded as his
masterpiece, and which he believed
would insure his fame. His disease
necessarily affected his entire nervous
system, and changed his handwriting,
which hail been plain, to a very bad
scrawl. He had 110 idea of this, how
ever, and, having completed his work,
handed, it to his private secretary for
careful keeping. When he had com
pletely lost the use of his eyes, he de
cided to have his manuscript published.
Rut his secretery could not read a lino
of it, nor could anybody to whom it
was submitted. Only Aubryet him
self could have deciphered it, and he,
also! was blinder than an owl at noon
day. The ill-fated author was in dis
pair; all of his eager hopes of immor
tality were forever blighted, and his
constant chafing hurried him to his
grave. This painful circumstance is
recorded and made known because
Aubryet wa9 an author, a public man.
But tilings of a similar sort are con
stantly happening to persons in private
life, and are therefore, never chronicle.
The Nubians struck the melancholy
truth when they said: 'Heaven sends
to the toothless almonds.'

Wbcn the Funding Bill came, ia due 1
court, to President Hayes, il would have
made no practical difference whvther lie
rat formal objection to the ilouae in
which it originated or left it t the silent
Umbo which await unsigned bills if Con
grew adjourns within ten day after their
passage. W think the President would
have acted more wisely bad he left the
Funding Bill to a quiet, natural death
when he found himself unable to approre
it. The veto message, hotr, suggests
an excuse for slaying a measure which
lay in the grasp of death if let alone, and
fur the unexampled promptness with
which the blow was dealt. It was not
till yesterday morning that President
Hayes received the bill, and at noon his
private secretary was at the Capitol to
deliver the veto message. The explana
tion suggested by the President for this
unprecedented haste is his desire that
Congress might substitute another fund
ing bill previous to the final adjourn
ment. This excuse is more specious
than convincing. Mr. Hayes has spent
four years at the head of the government
with little profit if he supposed that Con
gress would pass a new funding bill on
the last day of its existence. It could be
done only by the democratic majority,
whom the veto put in no mood to comply
with the wishes of its author. The dem
ocrats could not adopt the President's
recommendation of a three and a half
per cent, bond without stultifying their
whole course during the session; and they
know how futile it would be to repass the
three per cent, bill without the fifth sec
tion, since the adoption of that section
was a confession (as we have often
shown) that three per cent, bonds had lit
tle chance of sale in a free market. Of
course President Hayes did not expect a
new funding bill to go through both
houses on the last clay of the session.
There was no good reason for his swift
ness to strike, nor even for a veto at" all,
since the Funding Bill was dead enough
by his simple refusal to sign it. The
more quiet method would have satisfied
the opponents of the bill and have given
no handle to its supporters.
It was injudicious for the President,
without any necessity, to step forth into
the arena as a champion of the national
banks after the recent demonstration of
their tremendous power to derange (the
business of the country. It will ' be
charged by their assailants that they are
not only strong enough suddenly to un
settle all values and create a panic, but
to control the President of the United
States and induce him to act in their in
terest with a haste and zeal such as never
before have been exhibited in vetoing a
bill passed by Congress. We do not im
pute motives, but merely indicate what
is likely to be said by ths adversaries of
the national banks. We have not the
least shade of suspicion that President
Hayes has acted from any other motive
than sincere regard for the public wel
fare; but he has acted impulsively, pre
cipitately, without the deliberate and
cautious circumspection which benefits
bis great station. When it would have
sufficed to let the Funding Bill expire
with the session why need he have done
The effects of the fifth session of the
bill, on which alone the President rests
his veto, have been exaggerated by the
national banks. For the first ten years of
their existence they had no such privilege
of redeeming their circulation by a mere
deposit as would have been taken from
them by the vetoed bill. The act of 1874
was not passed to favor the banks, but to
protect the public. There having been
no practical redemption of bank notes
during the first ten years Congress made
provision for it in the act of 1874, and,
being intent on the main purpose, did not
sufficiently guard the method against
possible abuse. Its weak side was first
disclosed in the Wall street flurry. It
was then demonstrated that the national
banks (no matter whether with or with
out concert) can suddenly depress values
to any extent they please, carrying the
rates of interest up to three or four hun
dred per cent, a year, and that the only
remedy for such a calamitv is the bad
remedy of manipulating the currency by
the Secretary of the Treasuary. Such
possibilities should not exist. If we con
cede that the banks acted in self defence
without combination, that would not dis
prove the power of the banks to produce
similar and greater disasters by combina
tion. When they have been proved to
possess so much dangerous power the
business of the country cannot safely be
left to their forbearance. They must bo
restrained by the strong hand of the law.
While they should have every reasonable
facility for withdrawing their circulation
they must not be allowed to do it without
proper notice nor without precautions
against distress and panic. Their present
stupendous power to put on the screws is
intolerable iu a free country and must
be put under wholesome restrictions,
which equally guard the convenience of
the banks and the rights of the people.
We will not undertake to say where the
line should be drawn that is a question
for Congress; but there will certainly be
a widespread public clamor if the next
Congress fails to apply a remedy.
We therefore think President Hayes
has fallen into an error in his strenous
defence of the national banks. Had he
allowed the bill to fail without a formal
veto the country would have been lelt to
conjecture the grounds of his disappro
val, and many would have attributed it
to an opinion that it is impracticable,
owing to the low rate of interest. But
he leaves no room for question; ho vetoes
the bill solely as an advocate of the
national banks, and thereby makes him
self the defender of the abuses of which
the amendment of 1874 is susceptible.
