Hare yon seen my sailor boy, as yon came
&?TOss the sea?
Have you seen my sailor boy, with the laugh
ing eyes of bine,
"With the sunlight on his hair, and his face so
young and fair.
And the smile he used to rrear, braTC and true?
O, he kissed mc on the cheek as he sailed away
' to sea,
Sailed away 'from Glostcr Town, and I nerer
saw him moro.
But the ships they come and '.go, and the tides
they ebb and flow.
And the waves are moaning low on the shore.
Ahl they told me he was dead, but I know it is
For he comes to me at night, when the world is
And he speaks to me by day, when the tempests
, i sweep the bay.
And the billow a are at play on the deep.
For he aid he would come back, and he never
broke his word
Have you seen my sailor boy? He is coming
soon, I know,
I would go to him to-day, if I only knew the way.
Though the grave before me lay. I would go.

It was just after Christmas that I jrot
round so that I had a. day to run raj can
dles. That was a great day for agents,
too? Agents! I should think so. Seems
to me as if all the agents in New En
gland took a bee line for Potsville.
I'd hurried round and got the wash
in' an' ironin' an' a lot o' bakin' done
up the fust o' the week an' Wednesday
I got up early, ready to make sassago
and run candles.
I'd got, my fat on, an' my meat ready
to chop, when thcro came a rap at the
settin'-room door. Before 1 could get
there, however, it opened, an' in
walked a fattish kind of a woman,
carryin' a sort of leather case in one
How iV yc do ma'am?" she asked,
talkin' as if her life depended on it,
an1 never waitin' for an answer.
Ain't it a nice day? How's your
health? Are your folks well? Did I
understand from a lady up the road
here that you had seven children? How
are they all? Oh! you aren't the one?
Never mind, I have here, ma'am"
she'd been unrollin' her leather case all
the time, and here took out a roll of
something "I have here a new style of
corset that gives a most stylish air to
the stoutest figger. This is the most
remarkable corset ever produced in
this age or any other. Why, it makes
a stout person look slim as a girl, or a
slim one look nice an' plump! I should
advise you as a friend, ma'am, to buy
this corset. It has an electric spring
in the back that will keep you warm in
the coldest day and so equalizes the
temperature as to prevent your becom
ing overheated in the warmest weather.
It has galvanized iron springs in front
that are so comfortable you'll hsite to
take them off at night, while they im
part a grace and beauty to the female
figger that is unoqualled in the history
of corsets in thd past. Just let me put
one on you. You'vo no idea how it
will im prove your figger. W hy ' '
Just here I smelt mj- fat burnin' and
rushed out there in hot haste; but she
It will impart a truly marvelous
charm to your manner, and you will be
admired by everybody. You know
men just love an elegant figger."
She said this last in such a Iacka
daisacal way it maddened me, and I
Men!" says I. "Men! an' I a mar
ried woman! What business have I
iroin' round incitin' the admiration of
men? Hain't I a pardner? Don't he
admire me just as much in a loose
calico sack as ho would in a set of
electric spring, galvanized sheet-iron
corsets? 1 don't want to hear no more
such talk, an' I won't, neither."
She see she was on the wrong tack,
so she begun over again.
Well, A'ou wear corsets? All ladies
do, of course. We sell "
No, ma'am," says L "I don't wear
corsets, nor never did. I put on some
once, an' felt as if I'd been run into a
plaster-o'-paris mold, such as they put
on folks with spinal an' kindred dis
aases." "O, but these you could wear, I'm
sure!" she went on, determined to get
round mc some wa. "You wouldn't
be without them a single day if you
realized how they .would improve your
"My figger," I went on calmly pickin'
up my choppin' tray, "is just as the
Lord made it. If He'd wanted a gal
vanized trap arouud me. He'd a built
one there to begin with. So long as
He and my Johnson arc satisfied with
it, I be."
She seo'it wasn't airy use to talk cor
set to mo any longer, so she got out
some tape stuff and begun again:
"Let me sell you some h-jse sup
Hoes-supportcrs," says I. "Good
land! what won't they get up next?
Why, John allcrs keeps his hoes hung
up in the shed chamber through the
winter, till plantin'-time: and then he
supports: them himself except when
the neighbors come up an' lean over
the fence to talk politics. I do n't think
he'd think necessary to buy any hoes
supporters;" The woman laughed and said in a
good-natured way that she guessed we
couldn't trade much, an' she'd better
go. - Ididn't dispute her, au' soon was
alotuf oifce more with my sassages an'
candles. I kind o' wish afterwards Td
asked her how they hitched them hoes
supporters to the hoes, an' how they
worked. -. f
Thjfire had got-down, au' I hadn't
nxore&gojytjixedupan' another dozen
candles ron when there was another
knock on the side door. This time it
was a little lean fellow carryin' a mop
stick. He began without an j-prelimin-arics,soto;speak:
"' c5 '
"Here, madam, you see an entirely
new stj-le of mop. It has several ad
vantages over the mop ef long ago, one
of which is that it screws the rags, or
whatever material your mop is to
be composed of, into the frame
itself. Then, by turning this small
crank, you can wring out your mop
without puttingyour hands in the water.
Isn't that a triumnh of mechanical skill
in the line of mops, madam?" An' he
flourished his mop-stick in the air as a
singin'-master does his baton.
"When you will bring me a mop."
says L "that will git the water on the
stove, heat it, take it off again, an' mo
up the floor nice and clean, I'll buy
one. Until then, I shall stick to my
old mop. You might as well travel
right on, as I shan't be likely to trade
"But, this mop. madam! Yon will
always regret it if you neglect this op
portunitj to purchase what I may
style the great ultimatum of mop
Why, just look at this mop-stick,
"I'll look at this broom-stick, an' to
some purpose, too," says I. "if you
don't take yourself off. I'll defend my
self from corset-peddlers an' walkin'
mop-sticks, or I'll know the reason
why. I declare, here it is most noon,
an' uvy sassages hardly begun."
He looked sca't an' sayin' he'd better
go, he took himself off. He hadn't got
out o' the yard tho', before I saw a tall
old gentleman with a large square case
in his hand, comin' in at the gate. He
walked round to the back-door, and
right into the kitchen.
"Don't let me disturb you, ma'am, at
all," he began. "I merely wish to call
your attention to this paper, for which
I am gettingsubsuribers. It is doubtless
the most entertaining and instructive
paper published in the United States
to-day; and besides that, see these
magnificent chromos! Six of them
when j-ou subscribe, and four steel
plates like this every month afterward.
Isn't that a magnificent offer? Why,
this picture alone is worth nlore than
the price of the paper which is only
fifty cents a year. There, isn't that a
magnificent likeness, madam?"
"Who of?" I inquired in cool tones,
as he held up a very high-colored pict
ure of a man.
"Who!" he fairly yelled. "Is it pos
sible that I behold a woman who does
not know the face of our lamented
Garfield? Why, lots of folks have this
same picture richly framed and hung
in their elegant parlors, and it is mid
taken for an oil portrait. And you do
not know that face?"
"Not that one," I answered. "I've
seen good pictures of Mr. Garfield, and
I have one I set consid'able by myself.
But, good land!" sajs 1, warmin' up to
the subject, "didn't this countiy suffer
enough in all his long sickness an'
death, in the mighty strain of agony
an' suspense, afterward, in the sick
enin' trial of Guiteau, an' since them
times, without havin' them horrid car
ricatures scattered broadcast through
the land sence? I ain't nevor seen but
a few oil paintings; but I pity anybody
that ain't got brains enough to tell that
daub from one. Why, I could paint a
better ome with house paints an' lard
oil. I've been in the art gallery down
to St. Johnsbury, an' I've seen enough
there, an' I don't hanker after news
paper chromos very much. An' when
I see afifty-ccntnewspaperg'vin' away
three or four dollars worth of paintin's
ever;- week, I think there's a fraud some
where, either among the publishers or
the agents that canvass for 'em."
But just as I said the last words the
door slammed. I'd been standing at
my work with my back to him; an'
when I looked out of the window he
was goin' down tho road as if he was
after the doctor.
But this wasn't all. After dinner,
just as I'd got my dishes washed an'
put away, an' was gettin' my candle
moulds around again, I heard another
"My fat was gettin' too hot again, so
I took it off the stove an' set it on a
chair to cool. Then I wiped my hands
an' opened the door for as spruce a
yonng feller as ever was in the town of
Pottsville. Vu He wore the tightest
pants I ever see on a man yet. and he
was perfumed up with musk awful
strong. He skipped into the kitchen
in a genteel way, saying:
"My good woman, don't let mc in
terrupt you a single moment in your
customary vocations. I havo here a
book on Social Etiquette, which shows
one how to behave under all circum
stances, from the most ordinary every
day life up to the most trying, exacting
and wearying social position you may
ever be called on to fill. You may
think this of little consequence at the
present moment, but suppose your hus
band should be suddenly elected to
Congress and you be required to con
sort with the first lady of the land!
But I will not talk; I will read you a
few extracts, if you'll excuse me."
An' before I could say a word, or
knew what he was doing, down he sat
square into that pan of tallow.
I jumped towards him, but before I
could get there, he'd give one long
scream and rushed out of the house,
drippin' tallow all over the floor and
across my new settin'room rag-carpet.
It was an awful cold dav, and the
minute he got out of doors the tallow
hardened, so that, as he ran down the
road, he looked for all the world, as
as though somebody had drawn a map
of Europe on his reverse, or mebbe it
was an oil painting.
He didn't seem to remember that it
wasn't etiquette to rush from a per
son's house without saying good by;
but I presume, if he had stopped to
consult his book, he would have done

'Have I done any thing to offend
you, darling?" he asked, brokenly.
"To-day you passed me without bow
ing, and now you sit there with such
an air of hauteur and pride that -"
"George," interrupted the girl with
the unbending air, but in her voice
there was a cadence sweeter than mu
sic in the night, "1 have a stiff neck."

A PRINCE'S REVENGE.
now an Aantrlnn Archduke Stupefied a
In European countries, whero Princes
become titular Colonels at the age of
ten. and assume actual command of a
regiment before really entering upon
their practical military education under
the guidance of some veteran General,
it occurs quite frequently that a Prince
should assert the authority which his
station as a member of the imperial
family insures to him over any higher
commissioned officer, to remind his
tutor of his superiority over him as a
Prince, even though he be his subordi
nate as an officer in the field. On this
score an amusing story is whispered in
well-informed circles about the Arch
duke Johann Salvator, a nephew of the
Emperor of Austria. The Prince is
described as a wanton, fun-loving char
acter, and many are the anecdotes of
his humor at the expense of others,
though to his credit it is said that in
his escapades ho never exceeds the
bounds of the innocent harmless.
Recently the Prince commanded his
regiment at a maneuver held under
the auspices of an old and tried General,
who had lately been the favorito target
of the Prince's humor. Hero the Gen
eral saw his opportunity for retribu
tion. When at the close of the man
euver, as is customary, the officers col
lected about their lealer to receive his
criticisms of the different regiments,
the General expressed his satisfaction
with the troop in tho main, but con
tinued in a tone of infinite sarcasm: "I
can not refrain to remark that the de
file of No. " (the Prince's own) "was
very unsatisfactory. The bearing of
the troop was bad; and in fact all
through tho maneuver it showed poor
drilling and leadership. A rapid and
radical change would be desirable. So
speaking, with a self-satisfied smile he
turned in his saddle, and entering into
a conversation with an officer at his
side, he entirely ignored tho presence
of the Prince, who, with a cold salute,
turned his horse and galloped away,
for even he, while in tho character of a
soldier would not daro to utter a word
in disrespect to his superior. But if
revenge was denied to him in his pres
ent position, ho could easily achieve it
in the presence of a Prince. And he
was not slow to avail himself of this
A few minutes later, ere the group
around the commander had yet dis
persed, to the surprise of all there
sounded the well-known bugle signal
announcing the approach of a member
of the imperial household. The Gen
eral, as becomes his position, was at
the head of the staff to receive so unex
pected a visitor, when, much to his
chagrin, he perceived that it was Johann
Salvator, who had returned, accom
panied by his attaches. With uncon
cerned mien the Prince galloped for
ward, and returning condescendingly
the salute of the General, he demanded
from him a report of the maneuver,
which the commander could not deny
to his Imperial Highness. Then he ex
pressed his desire to witness a defile of
the troop, to which the General had to
submit, and gave orders accordingly.
Closely the Prince scrutinized each
regiment, and when the last company
had passed him, he turned to the Gen
eral, and amid the respectful silence of
all, he expressed in dignified language
his disapproval of the maneuver. "Gen
eral," he continued, "it shows poor
drilling and bad leadership. A rapid
and radical change would indeed be
very desirable. Entirely satisfied, how
ever, am l with iNo. (again it was
the Prince's own.) "Will you kindly
transmit to its commander my thanks
and my hearty approval of tho excellent
bearing which that regiment has shown
during the defile?" So saying he turned
about and galloped away, leaving be
hind him a cloud of dust and the stupe
fied General. Harper's Magazine.
OFFICIAL RED TAPE,
The Work Caused by the Return of a Two
A letter signed with initials and
mailed at the Washington post-oflico
was received the othor day at the Post
Office Department. The writer en
closed a two-cent stamp, with the fol
lowing explanatory remark for the
benefit of the Postmaster General:
"1 received a letter through your
office yesterday; the canceling stamp
failed to cancel the stamp. I tore tho
stamp off and used it. Now my con
science has got the best of me. You
will please find enclosed a two-cent
stamp to go to the 'Conscience Fund.'"
- As it was not money tho stamp was
not sent to the Treasury Department,
where there is a special fund for the
benefit of those who are overcome by
the pangs of conscience. The letter
was sent on the official round and as
much ink and good paper was con
sumed in recording its reception in the
department and its final disposition as
if it had been $10,000, instead of a
sickly two-cent stamp. It was first of
all recorded in the book of letters re
ceived in the Postmaster-General's
office, and was then sent, as indorsed by
the chief clerk, to the Third Assistant
Postniaster-GeneraL When it reaehed
the latter office it was referred by the
Third Assistant Postmaster-General to
the Finance Division. Another record
was made in the book of the office of
letters received and jacketed. Then it
found its way to the Finance Division.
The chief of that division pasted the
stamp on the letter, drew two cross
marks through the stamp with his pen
and marked under it the word "can
celed" and signed his name. This op
eration was witnessed by a clerk, who
affixed his name as witness, and then
the letter having reached the end of its
red tape journey, was duly and prop
erly deposited in the files, where it will
remain as an evidence to future gener
ations that this petit larceny upon the
Government was rcgularlj and offi
ciallj atoned for. In caso the citizen
whoso conscience was disturbed wishes
to establish the fact that he has made
restitution, he can refer to the docu
ments in the case, which the Post-Office
Department will kindly preserve for
him without charge. Washington Star.

PLUMS IN PLENTY.
Varieties That Can 'ot Well lie Surpassed
Plum culture has not been a success
with every grower in recent years,
priucipally on account of the terrible
work of the curculio, a most clumsy
fellow generally, yet only too active
when bent on the perpetuation of its
own race. This insect has effectually
prevented over-production of plums,
and also deprived the majority of home
growers of their homo supply. With
our present knowledge, and a number
of varieties of plums which are prac
tically curculio-proof to select from,
we s-eo no reason why tho amateur
should give up in despair, or let the
curculio have all its own way. Many
of our native sorts will produce full
crops in spite of all insects, and so will
the newly-introduced Japan plums, of
which Ogon, Botan and Kelsey's have
been tested quite extensively and found
of great merit We have seen Osron
trees loaded dow'n with ripe fruit
every specimen of which bore the
scarcely visible traces of from three to
five of the ominous crescent marks,
proving to our satisfaction that the
fruit is ab!o to outgrow the curculio
sting and to take care of itself. The
same was our experience with the De
Soto plum, one of the natives from
Minnesota. These two varieties can
not very well be surpassed in produc
The Ogon is a round plum (the Cali
fornia growers, who describe it as oval
or egg-shaped, must have a different
variety), of good size, a bright golden
yellow, fine, sweet, but rather dry
flesh; excellent for canning; ripens here
toward the end of July; tree a vigorous
grower; and apparently hardy.
De Soto is an American plum, of
medium size, bright red "color and good
quality. Its productiveness is simply
wonderful. Tree entirely hardy. As
a blossom and jjollen producer it is not
surpassed by any sort with whi ,-h we
are acquainted, and this feature we
consider of greatest value. Trees of
this sort should be planted scatteringly
among other varieties in every plum
orchard; and it will then "bear and
make bear" in abundance. The home
grower who wants to make sure of an
annual and. abundant supply, should
plant several trees together, selecting
almost any of the best standard sorts,
with at least one Ogon and one De
Soto in the middle of the cluster of
trees; or he may graft cions of various
sorts, always including Ogon and De
Soto, into limbs of one or more-larger,
hardy plum trees a native sort always
preferred. Orchard 03d Garden.
