She was at our house durini: the hulL

and cousins came to dinner. My ! what

lildrcn in tho Bittinjr-rooui with Aunt

tho best ehe could while she and the girla,
cleared the kitchen. It duos sound ho
funny to hear ma call aunties nirls
Well, we told riddles awhile, and then
Minnie asked aunt to tell us a story.
" 0, do," said I ; "a true one."
" A love story," said Ituth. (lluth
is twelve year old, and reads every
thing.) So auntie took the big rockinjr-chair,
with baby in her lap. " I'm afraid the
little ones won't keep still; bull 11 see
if I can't think one up for you."
I gave Johnny the blocks for him and
Billy to play with, and tho rest all sat as
still as mice.
" Well, once upon a time thero was a
man who had a wife and Bix little girls,

(there, children, I did not intend telling
you who the Btory was about), and father
took your Aunt Lida in his arms and
sobbed so hard that we hushed in amaze
ment. Your grandpa was so poor, too,
we hadn't much to eat or wear, and Aunt
Cora and I, youn as we were, had to
keep house. What a time we had. I
did the cooking and Cora would make the
beds, sweep, and on waahdavs we both
pitched in. My sisters used to call me
.Ma hnima, and I thought it Bounded so
sweet. 1 our grandpa was gone all the
time except at meals and at night he
would help me milk. After a while we
got used to this way of livinz. but we

1 was hanging up the clothes, Aunt Lida
and Ruthie's mother were plaving tag
just as you children do. l'oor Lida ran
to some chips near the kettle. 1 called
to her to come away, she would get burnt.
She looked up tome and says '! isn't

to ruu away ritrlit ouiek, for she was
always good to miud, when O dear! she
tumbled against the big ugly log under
the kettle, lell, the kettle turned, and tire
scalding suds poured out on her dear little
back and one ot her feet, audi cries,
children, jou never hoard. You think tc

just think how terrible to have bucu a
bum as hers was. For weeks she was nut
xpected to live, but at last the burn began
to heal. Sho was so poor, nothing but
skin and bone, and although sho was
nearly three years old, she only weighed
eighteen pounds. We little thought she
would uiako the hearty woman she is. I
icard her sav, yesteraay, she weighed a
hundred aud forty. She was a long tiuio
setting well ; one of her legs was stiff, and
-lie did not get to walk good until she was
eight years old. We sisters did every
thing wc could to please her. You must
always be kind to any ono wlio is amictco,
dears. Well, the years passed away, and
although the rest of us had our misfortunes,
such as cuts and bruises, that was the
only terrible thing which happened. 1
was so afraid father would scold, and
blame me, but he never said a word, only

We had to have a doctor for Lida, and
even after he was not needed ho kept com
ing Sabbath afternoons, to talk to your
grandpa He . went to Philadelphia to
attend some lectures, and wo saw nothing
of him for several years. When ho camo
back Cora and I wero grown. Cora was
pretty as a picture, and betoro long sue
whispered some expected news to wc.
After that it was a busy time at our
house, preparing for the wedding. After
they wero married and nettled down at
Adrian, Miunie went to livo with thorn,
leaviug Dora and Lida with me. Father
was getting along well then, and built us
a new house, 'i You children have always
lived in frame houses, so yon don't kuow
how proud I felt on leaving tho old log
house. We used it for a snwko house,
and every thing was as snug as you ploaso.

earth. Lida had grown to bo a perfect
beauty, and had bcauxs by tbe, score, but
eho did not seem to care for any of them,
and said she could never leave father, and
although she fell in love and married
Uncle Will, she kept her word and still
lives with and cares for father. Well,
well, the little ones have gone, to sleep
after their big dinner, and the girls are
urcly done tho dishes. Yes, here they
are. - u, mamma, said Kuth, ".Aunt
Kumia lias told us all about you and
aunties." " And never a word of her
aud Uncle Tom," said I. Aunt Emma
laughed, and mother says Emma's was
the only romantic marriage. - When
Cora was married sho and Tom were en-
gaged, but although he begged and plead
she told him she would never leave home
while she was needed there. And at
last when he firand she was in earnest, be
onme and told us good-bye, and went
out West, he said, to seek his fortune.
Emma looked so sad, aud was so very
quiet I remember father was very un
easy for awhile, and then there was sev
eral years we did not hear a word. Many
a night I havo heard her crying when
she thought I was asleep. About three
months after Lida was married thero was
another letter from him, begging her to
write once more, and saying that he had
heard the rest were all married, and Lida
living at home ; asking what there could
be in the way of theia marriage now, for,
said he, I can never be content until you
arc my wife. In her answer sha told
him that, if he still wished it, she would
marry him, but Tom, you must not ex
pect to find me as you left me ; there is a
great difference between nineteen and
thirty. Tho next letter told ho was
coming for her. We girls pitched in to
help her get ready ; both her clothes and
for housekeeping, for ehe had heen so
very good to us, we wanted to show our

Tf the time ever comes when an
American pays cash down for what he
gets there is a certain Detroit blacksmith
who wants to bo alive and see the phe
nomenon. His business history is, per
haps, tho business history of hundreds
of others. Ho rents the shop. The
landlord wants his rent the day it is due.
He has to ray cash down for his iron.
his coal, and whatever elso ho uses in tho
shot). Ud to a day or two ago he ran
threo forges. His men havo families,
and must have their wages every Satur
day. The patronage of tho shop is what
is called " first-class." ; That is, men of
wealth send their horsea there to be shod
and their vehicles there to bo repaired
Pass tho shop nny hour in the day, and
yon will seo trom tour to a dozen veto
cles there to bo overhauled, and tho shoo-ina-sliou
full of horses. , Tho income of
tho Bhop is often $200 per week. Not
one patron out of a dozen has paid cash
down for his work. Thoy havo fent it
thero without tho least idea of paying
anything until tho bill was sent in.
Along about Friday tho blacksmith get
into a buggy and drives around to collect.'
Ho has accounts footing up two, three or
four thousand dollars, some a year old, all
! against " good men, as) tho phraso coos,
, and the amount ranging from 75 cents
' to $:13. IIo calls on A. find A takes the
bill, looks it over and say; " Come In
tr I pan t tiav it to-dav." t
i ho has

somo other excuse., ,11 o may
have had his horse shod three months
before. Ho knows that the smith has
' had to keep up his rent, pay his toon and
put down cash for stock. Tho smith is

says : " Come in the fintof t'n month."
, This particular , blaiksmit carried
around with turn last Friday iftd Satur
day over $3,000 worth of aooanto, called
on forty-seven " good men," et did not
collect one shilling t He hadto pay out
that week $120 for rent,stoc and labor,
and was. thus $120 worse ff than tho
week before. When askecVrhy he did
not insist on cash down he iswerod : '
" Let mo make such a ulo and my
bhop would be , deserted. Men worth
$100,000 would take it as in insult, yet
here is a bill of $4 againsa man worth
twice $100,000, which b has avoidod
paying for the last .six moW
The other day one foee was hauled
oft. Thirteen vehicles leeling repairs
stood at tho door, but oat of the work
men was allowed to so bocuux money to
pay him could not lo rand. On the
accounts representing $3,0V the smith
has paid .out. over. $2,0i0 cash for la

reputed to be worth at lecst $5,000, and
some are known to be tilth $300,000,
but the accounts can bebought for fifty
cents on the dollar. ...
There is a general crvthat business is
flat, and men are wondeing when it will
revive. ' Perhaps the wa to revive busi.
ncss is for men to pay tk-Ir debts.' Per
haps a still better way rould be to pay
cash down, Finns roresenting from
$10,000 to $100,000 cajtal can carry "
a few debtors, but the 50 small concerns
who have to turn their sapital over each

The Legal Status of Advertising.
Under the above head the Philadel
phia Real Estute Journal says:
A curious and interesting case has
been decided in the Superior Court, in
volving new and Bomowhat peculiar
points of law, of interest to all who ad
vertise. ' Tho facts are briefly as follows,
omitting the names of the litigants : In
December, 1876, A, doing business as a
wholesale grocer, discharged B, who had
been employed as head of the tea de
partment ot his store. B sued A in the
Superior Court for $250, one month's
salary. In circulars, sent out by A, was
tho statement that thoy had the best tea
buyer, whoso sole duty it was to watch
the, market for bargains. A's defense
was that B spent too much time in the
tea market. Chief Justice Curtis chanred
the jury on the trial as a matter of law
that "when a man presents to the public,
in thojbrm of a circular or advertise
ment statements, ho is bound by those
statements. It is not for him to say
that it is a matter of business, or when
business is dull as a matter of course, to
issue statements that are untrue. . If,
after advertising his wares, goods or
medicines with statements for the publio
to act upon, ho comes into a court of
justice, he is bound by those statements.
The law knows no difference between
pretenses that are false except in the de
gree ot moral or criminal turpitude, and
in the punishment that attaches to them,
I ho man who seeks by ialse statements
in regard to his business through an ad
vertisement to delude tho public, when1
he docs it to reap profit for his own ad
vantage, is taking tho first step on that
road which terminates with false pre
tenses, with forgery, with crime and
with those acts which uuperu the inter
ests of all of us, and which tend to de
stroy the property, and perhaps the rep
utation, of every citizen.
The jury gavo a verdict against A for
$265. It must bo admitted that there
is much sound practical common eense
In Judge Curtirf' decision. This is a
very different point from that covered in
the decision in the case ot ilall v. liaii,
Kimbark & Co., which our readers may
remember In the case last named the
plaintiff took advantage of the defend
ant's circular, offering certain goods at a
very low price, to order a large line on
speculation. The order was not filled,
but tho court held that tho defendants
wero bound by the offer made in their
circular, and the plaintiff recovered large
damages, lioth cases are ot importance,
however, as showing the practice of our
courts in fixing the measure of legal re
sponsibility which they must assume

Obtaining India Kubber.
An article in Scribner's Muguziui
(" From tho Atlantic to the Andes "
tells how caoutchouc or India rubber t
obtained on the Amazon. Tho writer
says : Narrow paths lead from tho hut
through the thick underbush to the sol
itary trunks of the India rubber trees;
and as soon as the dry season allows,
the woodman goes into the sermgal witl
a hatchet in order to cut some holes in
the bark, or rather in the wood of the
caoutchouc tree, from which a milky
white sap Louins to flow through an
earthen spout fastened in tho wound.
Velow is a piece of bamboo which is cut
into the shape of a bucket. Iu this way
he goes from tree to tree until, upon his
return, in order to carry the material
more conveniently, lie begins to empty
the bamboo . buckets into a large cala
bash. The contents of these are poured
into one of these great turtle shells which
on the Amazon are used for every kind
Ho at once set to work on the smok-
ing process, since, it lett to stand long,
the gummy particles separate, and the
quality of tho India rubber is hurt
This cousista in subjecting tho sap,
when spread out thin, to tho sinoko from
nuts of tho Urueury or Uauassn palm,
which, strange to say, is tho only thing
that will turn it solid at once. An
earthenware " bowl without bottom
whose neck has been drawn together like
that of a bot tle forms a kind of chimney
when placed over a heap of dry, red-hot
nuts so that the white smoke escapes
from the top in thick clouds. Tho work
man pours a quantity of tho white, rich,
milk-like liquid over a kind of light
wooden shovel which ' ho turns with
quickness, m wdcr to separate the sap ai

Then he passes it quickly through the
dense smoke above tho littlo chimney,
turns it about several times and at once

he lays on skin after hkin until tho India
rubber on each side rs two or tnreo cen

peeled off the shovel and hung up to dry,
since much water has got in bctwcoii tho

Tho color of tho plancha, which at first

more vellow and at lust turns into the

Rockpoht, Mass. , April 2, l7i.
Mr. Editor-Harm read In vour paper the
reports of the remarkable cures of catarrh, I au
induced o tell what I know about catarrh, and
1 fancy tbe ' 'snuff ' and lntiellnjr tube" niak-
ers mere dollar cranoere would be jrlad U uiey
oould emh'az'm a similar cure In the papers,
( or 2ti years 1 niQwed with catarrh. The nasal
nagea become completely closed, Snult
, whes, inhaling lubes ami "sticks"would
not work, tnotign at intervals l would snm ap
the so-called catarrh tnitfl', until I become a valu
able tester tor such medicines. I gradually grew
worse anu n one enn mow now inuoii i iuuer
eil or whata ii;iserab'e being I was. My head
ached over my eyes so that I waa confined to
niy bed lor many successive days, luflertng the
moat intense pain, which at one time lasted tot
ltjhhourn. Alllseneeof taste and smell gone,
sight and hearing gone, nervous system shatter
ed and constitution broken, and I was hawking
and (pitting seven-eights oi the time. 1 prayed
fofd'Oth to relieve meof fliy Bufferings. A fa
vorablr notice in your paper of Dr. Sage's Ca
turrh Hamedy induced me te purchase a package
and use it wi.h l)r. Sage's nasal douche, which
apniira mis rciueuy uy ujuevvuhiv jiito.ictt, m
only way compatible witneemmoneetue. Well,
Mr. Editor, it did not cure me In three-fourthi
ol a second, nor in one hour or month, hut in
less then eight minutes i was relieved, sna in
three months entirely cured, ond have remained
so for oyer 18 months, While nstngthe Catarrh
Remedy I used Dr. Tierce's Uoldea Medical
!. verv to nurlf y my blood and strengthen my
stomach. A also kept my liver active and
bowels regular by the us of his Pleasant furga-
livel'ellets. If my experience will induce other
sufferers to seek the same means of relief, this
letter will bare answered itap urpoiw.
