I Or SMI
A Touching Incident.
' A little girl, in a family of my acquaintance
a lovely and precious child, lost her mother
at an age too early to. fix the lovec1 fondues m
Iter remembrance.. She was as frail as beau
tiful and as the bud of her heart nnfolded it
seemed as if won by that mother's prayers to
turn instinctively heavtnw-ard. The swee'.
conscientious,: pinyer-loving child was the
idol of the bereoveil family. She would lie
upon the lap of the friend who look a mother's
erne of her, and, winding one was'ed arm
aboul her neck would say, "Now tell me about
my mamma ! And when the oft-told tne hail
been repented would softly ask, "Take me
into the parlor j I want In see my mamma."
The request whs never refused j and the af
fectionate child would lie fur hours, content
edly axing on her mother's portrait. Uut
' "I'ale and wan she grew, and weukty
- Hearing all her pain sii meekly,'
That to tbeui she (till grew denier.
As the trial hour drew nearer."
That hour came at last, and the weeping
neighbors nst-ml'lecl to n the link one ilie.
I'lii; dew of death was already on the flower as
its lite-sun was cotiu; down. The little chest
heaved finlly--spsmotiicul ly.
"Do you luiow me, ilariiu I" sobbed close
in her tar the voice thnj. was ileureH ; but it
owuke no answer.,, . . : ;
All at once a bright lies, as if from the upper
world, burst ovcrthe cliihl'seolorle.'s counten
ance. 'Tl.e tye lids flashed until, the' lips
parted, the win, Cui'.il.lilj; hands flew up, in
ine mue one s last impulsive
looked p,i rctng;y into the fur above.
"Mother," the cried, '.i;li surprise
trnusport in her tone anil passed with
breath into her mothft's bosom.'
Said a distinguished divine, who stood
that Ltd 01 joyous death ;
"If I had itevir believed iii the ministration
of departed ones btl.iie, I boiilu not doubt it
"Peace I leave with you," said the wisest
Spirit that ever passed frhtn earth to 1Ieaen.
Let us be ut peace, amid the spirit rnjsteries
and quest-innings on which His tye shall soon
shed the light ol eternity. Aat omd Era.
How Jim Wicker's Head Got Bald.
' Jim Wicker was n ci.inii ai-lookiiig 'Mlow,
with a very young i-ice, hut, by reason of hav
ing no hair, he looked very old from his eye
blows all Ihe woy round to the bai.k of his
neck. He was very seii.-jtive nb ut the delect,
ami was aoinewh.it ceM.r.itid Ir in a light he
had wiili a traveling r.gricul;urol-ni, who unon
being asked, by Jim what Would cause Ins
hail to grow on his .hilling pull, was mlvisen
to ccver the top of his hca I w.th gu:inii,
and plant it down In cinh ta.-s. Hut J in,
wouldn't quarrel with Captain Wild, fi.i thai
gtntlciiian uas not only the l.ot of the l'uiiy
yiifcri but jlso had the key of all "the refr-sh
uieiils" in his possession : so win.oui heit.,
lion, he enlightened his nudiary after lhi.
f .sl ian :
"You sec the liar always did deep rayiher
scarce 'bout jr.y scalp, i.o.l I was always rub
biug in one '.hi.'ia ami anoihcr to fo'.cli it out,
fori was snrtni that the loots wasn't dead,

gteuiid. I'd heard of bar'sgrease, mid bough;
a gallon in bottles, iu 1 believe it was noth
nig but hog's bird and hulilon taller ; so 1
thought I wou'd h: ve the genuine article, ami
I got old Dan lo go out and kill something for
my special benefit. Dim told me it was in the
sprint;, and that the bai was in bad health, ami
out of season ; but I believed he was tryin'
oquiz me, and I wouldn't lake no for an mi
swtr. A short limit loti-h the (niter at hay,
and l an, by a shot in the vi'nls, Saved the
varmint,' but the bar id in had comli ion, for
he looked as seedy as mi old Can ula thistle,
and h: r.lly ila Cnulf in him to keep his jiuts
Irom squeaking, but what lie diil have 1 got
rjiui used and strangers,' said Jim .looking nor
lowfully round on Ihe company, 'in two day-
hat lillle bar i had commenced tailing off,
and in a week 1 w as as bald as a gnu barrel.
Dan was right ; the v o r us i ri t was a sheddiiii:

How reldnm do we meet with people, uni
ted by the inlima e relation of hu-baiili ami
wife, brother and sister, parent and ehi.d, who
are habiluallj courteous 'hat is losay, unsel
fish toward each other. Most unusual is it to
rreet a husband and wife whose manner lo
wards each other is what it oucht lo he. All
(lie fotmality assumed in company does not
veil the disrespectful, almost contemptuous fa
.nuliarity of more private life. We h ive seen
many men w ho wm 1 1 throw away ck'ars at the
approach of a si range lady, but who would never
h'silaie one moment :o make their w ivc'n
silling room sine 1 1 like .i l.ar room; and though
we should Ihink I lint a badly arranged home,
where no arrangements are made lo keep peo
ple's indulgences from inconveniencing each
other, still we do not consider that he acts
with irne ccittleBiutily spirit towards his wife
who will give the whole hou.e a smell ofsiale
tobacco, rather than walk ten slepr, even
his wife is so truly a lady, and nets in so gen
nine a spirit of self-sacrifice, that she dois not
let it be seen that she is sacrificing.
A Pan that was no Joke.
A Frenchman near Ihe Canada line in r
llionl sold a horse to his Yankee neighbor,
which he recommended as being a very sound,
scrviceable animal, in spite ol his nuprepes
