Two gentlemen friends who had
been parted for jears, met in a
rowdeu city thoroushfaie. lue
one who lived in the city was on
his way to meet, a pressing busi-
css engagement. After a few ex
pressions of delight, he said:
'Well, I'm off. I'm sorry, but it
can't be helped. I will look for
you to morrow at dinner. Remem
ber, two o clock sharp. I am ani
ons for you to see my wite c;.
"Only one child?'' asked the oii.
"Only one a daughter," came
the answer, tenderly. ' She is a
darling, I do assure you."
And then they parted, the strnn
ger in tbe city getting into a scree
car, bound for the park, whither he
desired to go, -
Alter a block or two a group ot
five girls entered tbe car; they were
all young and evidently belougcd
to (amities of wealth and culture
that is, intellectual culture as they
conversed well Each carried a
very elaborately-decorated lunch
basket; each was attired in' a very
becoming spring suit. Doubtles
tbey, too, were going to the park
for a spring picnic. They seemed
very happy and amiable until the
car again stopped, this time letting
in a pale-faced girl of about eleven
and a sick boy of four. These chil
dren were shabbily dressed, and
uton their fares there were looks of
distress mingled with some expec
tancy. Were they, too, on their
way to the paritr J he gentleman
thought so; ro did the sreup of
girl3, for he heard one of thcoi say
with a look of disdain:
"I suppose those ragamuffins arc
on an excursion, too.
1 stioulan t want to leave my
door if I had to look like thai
Would you?" This from another
"No, indeed! Uut there is no ac
counting for tastes. I think there
ought to be a special lin3 of cars
for the lower classes."
All tuis conversation went on in
alow tone, but the gentleman had
heard it. Had the child, too? He
glanced at the pale face and saw
toars elistenin2 in the eves. Then
he looked at the group of finely
dressed girls, who had moved as fa
from the plebtan as the limits of the
car would allow. lie was angry
He longfd to tell them that they
rere vain and heartless, as they
drew their costly trappings closer
about them as if fearful of contact
with poverty's children.
Just then an exclamation, "Why
there is Nettie: wonder where sh
is going?" caused him to "look ou
upon the corner where a sweeti-
faced 3'oung girl stood beckoning
to tbe car driver. When she enter
ed the car she was warmly greete
by the five, and they made room
for her beside them. They wcr
profuse in their exclamations and
'Where aro you going
'O. what lovely flowers! Who
are tbev for? ' questioned another
"I'm on ray way to Belle Clark's,
She's sick, you know, and the flow
ers are for her."
She answered both questions at
once, and then, glancing toward the
door of the car, she saw the pale
girl looking wistfully at her. She
smiled at the child, a tender look
beaming from her beautiful ej-e?;
and then, forgetting that she, too,
wore a handsome velvet skirt and
costly jacket, and th her shapely
hands were covered with well filling
gloves, she left her seat and crossed
over to the little ones. She laid
one hand caressingly on the boy's
thin cheek as she asked interested
of his sister:
"The little boy is sick, is he not?
And he is your brother, lam sure;
he clings so to you."
It seemed hard for the girl to an
swer, but finally she said:
"Yes, miss, he is sick. Freddy
never has b?en well. Yes, miss, he
is my brother. We're goin' to tbe
park to see if it won't make Freddy
"I am glad you are going," the
young girl replied, in a low voice,
meant for no one's e.nrs except thoe
of tbe child addressed. "I feel sure
it will do him good. It is lovely
there, with the spring flowers all in
bloom. 15iitwhere is your lunch?
You ought to have ft lunch after so
long a drive?"
Over the little girl's face came a
'Yes, miss, roebbe we ought to.
for Freddy's sake; but, you see, wo
didn't have any lunch to bring.
Tim he's our brother he saved
these pennies purpose so as Freddy
could ride to the park and back. I
guess mebbe Freddy'll forget about

Were there tears in the lovely
girls eyes as she listened? Yes,
there certain ly were; and very soon
she asked the girl where they lived
ami wrote the address down in a
tablet, which she took from a bead
ed bag upon her arm.
After riding a few blocks the
pretty girl left the car, but she bad
not left the little ones comfortless.
Half the bouquet of violets and hy acinths
was. clasped in the sister's
hand, while the sick boy, with rai
diant face, held in his hand a pre
cious package from which he helped
himself now and then, saying to
his sister in a jubilant whisper:
"She said we could cat 'em all
every one when we get to the park
What made her so sweet and good
to us? She didn't call us raga
muffins, and wasn't 'fraid to have
her dress touch ours; anil she rail

And Sue whispered back :

"Yes, the child 13 right; the love

There is a class of people who
seem to delight ia tormenting their
acquaintances in all manner of inge
nious was. One of their modes
of annoyance, is to make allusions
to painful circumstances in the
past lives or present situation of
one's friends, always of course in a
polite manner. Suppose, for m-
tance, that a menu has commit
cd. some noted imprudent or rash
act in the course of hts life, or at
hue from anv cause "made hinjself
public laughing-stock, or is
now suffering under some wound
cflicted ou Ins vanity or his for-
une, ail tb? t one of these tormen
tors has to do is to brinji the con
versation to point, whatever it is,
and enjoy the affected tranquility
with which his friend talks of it, all
he time tiiat he knows his annoyed
victims neart is burning within
him. There is one great advantage
attend ing this mode of torraentino-
nd that is, it can be performed
with ;an appearance of frankness
extremely honorable to one's self
Tuen it looks downright, and main
tains a character for plainness of
speech, under favor of which vou
uiay m time become what is called
a privileged person, and so be able
to say all kinds of disagreeable
things at all times to anybody.
Acotncrrnoue bt torment prac
ticcd by these people consists in aa
quainting one's friands with depre
ciatory opinions, which are, or may
De suppose.! to be, entertained of
them by others. This mode may
want eome of the advantages of the
candid plan, but. it is safe and
pleasant and quite as effective.
There are people who may think it
mean to reprort thing3said by oth
ers and worse than mean to invent
them and say them in the name of
persons who never so much as
dreamt of them. Hut it is an ac
knowledged maxim amongst the
honorable body of tormentors that
thii -end santions the means, and
as thet' claim that their purpose is
generally the laudable one of taking
down pride, or perhaps the still
more useful one ot inspiring a little
prudence into the brains of folly, it
is ratural'for them to Buppose that
instead'of blame, they deserve some
public mark ot approbation.
Hence, it not, infrequently bap
pens that one of these aggravating
person" will pursue his detestable
work of torture with a sanctimoni
ous air, as though he were in fact
performing a most benevolent and
praiseworthy action. But such peo
pie are snre to come to griefin the
course of time. Their friends grow
fewer ami fewer; they are more and
more shunned bv the right-minded
and kind hearted, and finally left
exclusively to their own society',
which is the worst that can be im
agined. New Y. Ledger.
liotes of The "Week,
The necessity for the enactment
of a comprehensive interstate com
merce law was rendered" clear by
the recent decision of the supreme
court of the United States in the
case of The Wabash Railway Co.
vs. Illinois, to which full reference
has ahead' been made in these col
umns. The subject, too, has just
been commended to the atten
tion of congress by the president.
It appears from Washington advi
ces that the outlook for a settlement
of this long-discussed question is
more promising. It ia announced
that the senate and house confer
ence committees on the Cullom and
Reagan Interstate commerce bills
have come to an agreement and will
report a substitute measure. This
measure will retain the feature of
the Cullom bill which provides for
the establishment of a commission
to deal with complaints against
railroads, though shippers will be
allowed to prosecute suits for dam
nges in the couuts on their own be
half. On the much disputed long
anil short haul question a compro
mise has bt en agreed on. The pro
vision adopted makes it unlawful
f r any railroad to charge more un
der substantially similar conditions
f r a
nsportatioa for a shorter than
oilier distance over the same
line and in the sa.xic direction, the

Ab lazily up from his li(.a il rolled;

Were siowly gathering to fill the room.

To wake in tne.morniug with a drunkard's
A blood-shot eye and a whirling brain,

But nothing but the chairs eould tbe ba:

The Southern Farmer.
That there is increasing prosper
ity in the industrial interests of the
south, with a bright future, is now
seen by every one. This being true,
the question of first importance
now is how are the farmers doing?
On this point wo have claimed that
despite tbe many drawbacks and
burdens under which southern farm
ing interests have labored, there is
a steady improvement in the geucr
al condition of southern farmers.
We know that many are etill held
down to poverty by the all-cotton
curse, the exorbitant interest paid
on all credit purchases of supplies
and the lack of a home market for
their productions, but still there is
a gradual shaking off of these in
cumbrances, and southern farmers
are more and more raising their
own foodstuffs and turning from
cotton to diyersified agriculture.
Every manufacturing establishment
planted in tha sorfth marks the
progress towards the time when di
versified agriculture will be the rule
throughout that section. Wherever
a factory is started there is the be
ginning of a better home market
for all the supplies that a farm can
produce, and given the same de
mand for diversified farm product?,
the southern farmer will display
equally as much energy as the
Pennsylvania or western farmer. It
is the lack of a stimulous only that
makes so many southern farmers
thriftless. They have no induce
ment to diversify their farming be.
cause they have no certain market
for the eggs, chickens, dairy pro
ducts, fruits and vegetables that
thev raient raise. Liivc tiiem as
good a home market for thes
things as the Pennsylvania farraei
enjoys and the south would be tbe
richest agricultural country in the
world. Manufacturers Record.
Treatment of a Felon.
We bad a felon in our family
lately and treated it most success
fully by steaming the whole hand
with bitter herbs. It was badly
swollen, excessively painful and ot
a livid purple color. lint in the
palm of tbe hand, it involved the
whole hand and wrist in the swell
ing. A handful each of tansy,
hops, catnip and wormwood was
thrown in an old basin, a small
qnantity of tobacco and a half tea-
cupful of soft soap added and sulfi
cient water to cover. When boil
ing hot tbe hand was placed over
the steam, and a small blanket was
thrown over the basin to retain the
;i ,m that was applied until tht
mixture cooled. This repeated da
add night until the pain was u
I i rely lemoved, wuich wa- ia 4.Y
hours. The relief from 'the pares
ysmB of pain is almost magical sh
soon as the steam i-t applied. Tht
mixture was only once renewed.
No anodyne was used to procure
sleep, as the steaming instantly re
lieved the successive paroxysms of
pain. Country Gentleman.
