Richard Rusty Seeks an Office.
Mr. Richard Ruity desired an office under the
ew Administration, ana no went to wasniDgton
to get it. -v . - r
At home. Rusty was known as plain "Dicki
Dick Rasty btga prirate In the "Volunteer
iriinnte uuara, ai oqaam.
Dick Rust had 'lied hia Sereo dollar coat
ererely, bearing a torch in the Wide Awake
processions, he bad lerred aa nnder-Secretarj
at the town and county convention!); he was the
rery Brat man in bia neignbornoud wbo bad
tbouehl of "Old Abo" for President, and be
determined to be "counted In," sure, after in
anroration. And so. carpet-bar In band, one
fine morning recently, be found himself, jogging
ap rennsyirama Aronue, in ins great city u
"TuuuTes, nacas, ana megnincent aistancea."
- Washington is a rery nice placet Dick bad
hia "Danon" with him to wit. a few had I.
spelled and worse written voucher for his good
character and "sterling" political principles, and
knowing himself (in bis own esteem) sound on
the goose, upon reaching Washington he sailed
in tor tne utile uovernmeni ouioe lie caveteA in
hia native town.
Havlo careful 1 anTelonad 'him nwlntlli
be ttarted them to the Department to which tbev
were addressed, and triumubantlv sat himself
aown in tne garret room ot bis bnardide-house.
. r . . . 1 . . "
au await an answer irom tne iijq. oeoretary
And thus he waited.
One day two. three, five a watt-.
oat no reply by post, as be bad expected! Now,
uiB waa a very singular circumstance, (la Mr.
Rusty' opinion) and the delay verv unusual, in
his experience- Indeed, after a time, it came
to look very much like a slight towards him
wnat could it meanf He wrote to Innnire eh.
his "little matter" had not been attended to.
- He got no reply to this, either ! Again he
addressed the Department unon the same sub
ject. But he received no answer. Tbia was
an outrage. Whereupon, having waited anoth
er week, be determined, valiantly, to "know
tbe reason wby."
mr. Kusty bad not omitted to stir np the Hon.
Representative from bia District ( who assured
him be would "look Into bia case"), and then
be waited once more. He fonnd the county EJl
tor, too, wbo chanced to be also an applicant
for place, and be promised to attend to Mr.
Rasty directly. And again he waited. Still, nn
reply. And thus four week ran on, and Rusty'
money ran out. ;
: AatonUbed, and exasperated, he started at
length for tbe Department in person. Ha found
at leant six hundred persons there, before him,
all religiously bent unon an errand aimil ar tn
his own I Hs waited six mortal hours in tbe
great windy paggK.way, where he was squeei
ed, and elbowed, and jammed, and nearly aufTu-
eated; but still he struggled for his "turn."
He got sight of the inner door Just In season to
see the Honorable Secretary emerge and pasa
vu. w uia varriuBS, lur some, CUSineSS Was
over for the day, and the mob rushed down tbe
stairs and retired.
But Richard Rusty, of Sauam. waa a man nf
business; so be followed ud bis obiect nut da.
and the next, and the next. At last be succeed
ed In getting inside, where tbe followina- collo
quy ensued: .
"wood morning, Mr. Secretary," says Rnsty,
confidentially j aud be grasped the Secretary 'a
hand like a "Bon of Malta" wbo bad passed bis
twenty-third degree. '
"Good morning," responded the Hon. Secrc.
tary, blandly. -
"Mr. Rnsty Richard Ruatr. air " add An,
"Yet; very happy, Mr. Rusty. From Indi
ans f" queries tne Secretary, slil r. '
"No. air no." ' " -.----.'
"Oh ah, no. From Illinois, then 7" '
"No, sir. FromSqaam," sara Rustv.mnd.
"Sqaaml Yes, yes. I remember. Sauam
Maine, I Ihlnkl"'
"No, air. Connecticut.",
"Ah, yea. Very bapny.; Yes: Connecticut
Busty Squam. I know, now."
Mr. Kusty nogets. Bo does tbe Secretary.
Eaoh is desirous to get out of the other's nrea-
nce aa soon as possible. And Mr. Rusty is du
ly referred, with bis papers, to File Clerk No.
21, who (he is informed) "takes charge" of
bis documents. Rusty retires In high glee, In
his own judgment, he baa won.
He waits a rain. Three dava five, a clr
a fortnight; bat he hears nothing; and then
be yentnres to wait upon Mr. File Clerk No.
21, where he Inquires about bis "little affair."
No, 21 bas five bushels of onooened letter on
bis table when Rusty enters.
"What name, sir?" he asks. ;
"Rnsty, sir. Riohard Rusty.' '
Our office hunter is not a little nettled ta
learn, as he now does for tbe first time, from
the File Clerk, that Messrs. Busty, Custy, Dus
ty. Fusty, Gusty, Husty, Justy. Rusty, flaeer
beer manufacturer,) Lusty, Musty, Nusty, and
Pasty, are all before him on tho list of appli
cant; for, unfortunately, our friend lrom Sauam
M .1 T . I
Bwayuuwn Bmung iue 11 a 1 .
But Mr. File Clerk No. 21 is a natlent man
and polite. He haa been In the office a dozen
years, and "will do anything to oblige Mr. Rus
ty, (except to give mm an; lucid Information.)
And so No. SI refers the applicant to Mr.
White, No. 44, next room, overhead. Up goes
Rusty; Mr. White sends bim to . Mr. Buff
fourth clerk, No. 56, np two flights farther
Mr. Hun knows notblng or Mr. "Kusty Squam's"
ease, but thinks Mr Drab can Inform him abont
tt. Mr. Drab can't say, certain, but directs the
tired but patient inqnirer to Mr. Redd, down
atairs three flights, end of third passage, to the
left north. Rusty has no compass with him.
(and really couldn't nse It, if be had!) but he
finds his man. Mr. Redd is very bnsv. and van
abort, but haa no doubt that Mr. Gray, (whose
duty it is to attend to these things) can inform
Mr. oquamiy -wnat to ao atwut it." He finds
Mr. Gray. Mr. Gray sends him to Mr, Green.
Mr. Green forwards him to Mr. Bloo fwho
speaks English very indifferently.) Mr. Bloo
deapatcnea mm to Mr. Brown, (tbere are thirty,
seven Browns on the sameHoor,) and Mr. Brown
bknds bim over to Mr. Black, op atairs, once
more. Mr. Black knows nothing whatever of
Mr. Rusty, or his papers, and never heard of
bim or them bat civilly refers him back to Mr.
White, where he atarted from., '
By this time Rtobard Rusty is dlegnated, and,
thoroughly beaten oat with running over the
stone stairs, he concluded to go to bis lodgings.
Next day be commences once more, and seta
lost in tbe multifarious windings and turna of
the geat Department building. Before he haa
time to get bis bearings again, office hours have
expired, and he returns again to his boardine
boose attic, to ruminate upon the mutability
of human affairs generally, and of office seek
ing especially, concluding with tbe philosophi
cal sentiment, that "Jordan is a hard road to
trafel." ' ' '
Desperate, next day, be finds "File Clerk No.
21," witn wnom ne ongmauy deposited bi pa
pers, and indignantly demands bis documents.
After waiting several hours, and making dill
gent search, with hia papers in bis band, he la
admitted to the presence of the Secretary, with
wbom-emld his despair and disappointment

"I'm Mr. Rusty,", be sajs, abruptly, as be
"Glad to seeyoa, responds tbe Secretary.
"Yeaj I s'poae so," says Rusty. : .

"Where from!" exolalmt the applicant, wbo

Gymnastics for the Eyes.
Dr. Holland Is now writing. In tha fini-lnofl.M
Repnblioan, a series of essays entilted "Rumln.

fully and beautifully of the Inflinty which lies
below us tbe wonders which are discoverable
In little things. Here is an Illustration, fmm
which be deduces a valuable lesson:
these thoughts come to me. borne he rerr.ln
memories. 1 remember a venerable gentle
man of Buffalo Dr. Scott who did. andh
still does, very great things In a very small way.
At tbe age of aeveoty he became consoloas of
decaying power of vision. Being professional ly
physician and naturally a Dhilosoner. ha eon.
ceived the idea that the eye might be Improved
what he denominated a series of "ocular
gymnastic." He, therefore, undertook to ex
ercise bis eyea upon the formation of mlnnte
letters working upon them until the ornna ha.
gan to be weary, and then, like a prudent man,
reeling tor ooura. cy progressing siowly and care
fully, he became, at last, able to do wonders In
the way of fine writing, and also became able
read the newspapers without glasses. (Here's
hint for some clever Yankee aa good as a
fortune.) Now, 'reador, prepare fort Bt
story i but be assured that it la true, and that
my hands have bandied and my eyes seen tbe
things of which I tell you. At the age of seven

One of Daniel Webster's Anecdotes.
Webster had an anecdote of old Father Searl.
the minister of his boyhood, which has never
been tn print, and which is too good to be lout.
It was customary to wear bnckakln breechea in
cold weather. , una Sunday mordtng in the au
tumn. Father Bear! brought down his from
tbe garret; but tbe was pa had taken DoaseMinn
of tbem during tha summer, and were baring a
nioe time of it In them. By dint of effort, he rot
out tbe intrude end droeaed for meet ing. Bat
wnue reaamg toe scriptures to the congrega
tion, he felt a dagger from one of the enraa-ed
small walated fellows, and jumped around the
pulpit, slapping nis' thighs. - Mat the more he
slapped and danced,,tbe more they stunt .i . The
people thought him craiy, and were in commo
tion as to what to do; but be explained the mat
tr by saying, "Brethren, don't be alarmed; the
Word of God is in my mouth, but the Devil is
In my breeches!" Webster always told it with

are ao hurried in our hotela and so little In oar

the best remedy ever vet discovered for thi elaaa

tion. A great superiority of this remedy over any
other ever discovered for the apeedy and oertain.
cure of Intermittent is that it oontaina no Quinine - ?
or mineral, consequently it produce no quinism or
other injurious effects whatever upon the constitu
tion. Ihose cured by it are left as healthy aa if
they had never had the disease.
1' ever and Ague is not alone the consequence of ' -the
miasmatic poison. A great variety of diaor- . .
tiers arise from its irritation, among which are -JSeuraloia,
Rheumatitm, Gotd, Headache, Blind- '
ness, Toothache, Earache, Catarrh, AtiAma.Pai- '
fntation. Pain ful Affection of the Spleen, Hyster
ic, Pain in the Bowel, Coke, Paralytit sad De
rangement of the Stomach, all of which, when '
originating in this cause, put on the irirermirtonf
tvpe, ot become periodical.. This " Ctrai " expels
the poison from the blood, and coneequently cure
them all alike. It is an invaluable protection to
immigrants and persons travelling or temporarily
residing in the malarious districts. If taken occa- "
sionally or daily while exposed to the infection, '
that will be excreted from th system, and cannot
accumulate in sufficient quantity to ripen into dis
ease. Hence it is even more valuable for protec
tion than cure, and few will ever suffer from Inter -mittents
if they avail themselves of th protection
this remedy affords. -
