The Timely Word.
In a field where the grass grew
green, there lay a little boy on the
ground. He was seven years old, and
his name was John Harold. The
folks called him Jack.
Near by stood an artist who had
been sketching a picture. All at
omce he caught sight of Jack lying
on the ground : and then the artist
made a drawing of Jack ; but Jack
did not know it.
Then Jack started up, and began
to ehase a dragon fly. Out of one
field into the next, back again over
the stone wall, and then over a ditch,
and into thebushes ran Jack ; but he
did not cntch the fly.
It had flown up on a large leaf of
an ash-tree. Jack did notgiveup the
chase. Up the tree he climbed, caught
the fly and jumped with it to the
ground.
The artist now stepped forward,
and said, "Do not hurt that fly, my
boy. Let it go, and I will give you a
penny."
penny was worth mare to Jack
than the fly : so he let it go.
"What is your name, my lad?"
asked the man.
"My name is Jack Harold," said
the boy.
"Have you no one to mend your
clothes for you, and to teach you to
be dean and neat? Have uu no
mother ?"
"Mother and father are dead,"
said Jack ; "and I have no one but
aunt to take care of me, and she has
too many cares of her own to think
rnurh of me "

"Then I would care for myself, If
I were you, Jack," said the man. "I
watched you while you were run

thought it a pity that so bright and
spry a lad as you, should look as you
do. You are not idle all the time, I.
hope?"
I've nothing ever to do," said
Jack : "I wish I had. Aunt will not
send me to school."
"And so you cannot read or write?
Well, Jack, I was once as badly off
as you. I had lost my parents, and
was a poor boy; but I was just as anx
ious to get on, and to do something
as you were just now to catch that
dragon-fl"."
"Well, 4ir what die? you do, if you
hurl no one to help yon?" asked
Jack.
Why, I helped myself. I got
over one dimcuity alter anotnerjust
a you got over the stone walls, and
through the brambles ; and you can
do as I did. if you will be as eager to
get your living as you were to seize
on that fly."
Having said thus much, the artist
walked away ; for he saw he had set

It is time for us to go
home."
"I don't want to go home yet,"
thought Top-Hnot, a half grown
chicken. "That old hen-house is
dark and crowded. I've a great
mind to stay out all night. I am
bit; enough to take careof myself."
So he hid behind a bush till his
mother and brothers and sisters were
out of sight, and then ran off in the
opposite direction in high glee.
"Now," thoughthe, "if I catch a
grasshopper, I can eat him all my
self, instead of sharing him with any
one."
Then he went up on a . hillock, and
climbed a rock at the top to see what
he could see.
He saw a clear, geldon sky asd the
mists rising over the river, and by
his side stood a Grasshopper.
"My goodness I" said Top-Knot,as
he prepared to eat him.
"Take care," said the Grasshop
per, "the sun Is down. No Grass
hoppers to be killed after sunset, you
know.
"How is that ?" said Top-Knot.
"It is the law," said the grass
hopper. ,TT didn't know it," said Top
Knot. "Your ru-tier ought to have told
you," said the Grasshopper.
"She didn't think I would be out
so late," said Top.-Knot. "Did you
ever stay out all night?"
"Oh yes," said the Grasshopper,
"I always stay out."
Just then a Turkey came by and
gobbled up the Grasshopper.
"I wish now I'd eaten him myself,"
thought Top-Knot.
"Why are you out so late ?" said
the Turkey.
"Because "said Top-Knot.
"What shall I tell your mother if
she asks me where you are ?" said
the Turkey.
"Tell her yon don't know," said
Top-Kuct as he scampered away.
"The foxes will otch you," said
the Turkey, but T;p-Kuot hurried
round the corner without stopping
to listen to him.
Here he found a few crumbs and
seeds, which he was very glad to
eat.
By and by he met Towser.
"Have you lost your way ?" asked
Towser.
"No," replied.Top-Knot. "I am go
ing to stay out ail night."
"You're crasy," said Towser.
"The minks will catch you."
. "I am big enough to take care ef
myself," said Top-Knot-
"Big enough but not smart enough,"
said Towser. "You'd better come
home with me I'll take care of you."
Top-Knot considered. It was grow
ing very dark. The grass was cold
and wet. He didn't find as many
bugs and grasshoppers as he expect
ed. Kut to have to go nomesosoon
and with Towser, was rather i
downfall to his pride, so he said :
"No. I thank you," and turned
away, inwardly resolving to go home
alone in a few minutes.
"I'll follow Towser," thought he
"he knows the way."
So he followed slowly, keeping
Towser's white tail in sight In the
distance. Suddenly he saw a bright
light, like a spark of fire, in the grass
at his feet. He stopped to look at
it and it was gone, and there in its
place was a nice little worm t He
stooped to pick him up and he was
none, and tneie was we spars: again
He started back in surprise, and
there was the worm ! He turned

as fast as I can."
By good fortune he took the right
road and boon saw the hen-house,
but when he reached the door it was
shut for the night.
"What shall I do?" thought he,
and he ran all around it, trying to
find a place to get in. No Indeed. It
was never intended that any one

outside in the night. He peeped
through the oa lines and saw b

"Poor little Top-Knot !" said his
mother. "How careless I was not
to miss him till the door was shut."
"Mother, mother!"' cried Top-

"Hark !"said his mother. "What

The Connecting Link Between Man
and Fish.
[From the Scientific American]
To believers in the Darwin theory
it will be of interest to know that in
the quiet bays and rivers on the east
ern coast of Central and South Ameri
ca there lives an- animal which
might be rightfully considered as the
connecting link between man and
fish. It is the manatee, the water
siren, the sea-calf, er sea-eow, as the
strange animal is sometimes called.
It belongs to the order of the Cetacea,
and is altogether herbiferous, living
on grass which grows under water,
or ou herbs which it seeks on shore.
The body is pisciform, and measures
some fourteen or more feet in length;
the skin being thick, without hair,
and of a dark oolor. The upper part
of the body, especially ot the
females, resembles that of a
woman, the breasts being of the
same form. In place of the fins of
the ordinary fish, the manatee has a
short arm of only, one Joint, which
terminates in a sort of hand, on
which the nails are distinctly visible,
and which the animal uses with
much dexterity in moving about
when on land, and In carrying its
young. This limb has caused the
"animal to be called manatee, from
the' Latin word manus, the band.
The. writer, who for several years
resided in those c un tries where these
animals abound, has seen the animal,
and has been told repeatedly by the
natives that the female holds her cub
to suckle as the mother does her
babe. The tail of the manatee is
shaped like an open fan, and the
close observer will perceive ten
divisions, which mark the ten toes.
Manatees swim by the help of this
broad tail, which moves up and
down, and not from right to left like
that of the fish. This limb, which at
first appears to be a fin or nerve,
melts almost entirely into butter
when fried in a pan, and is highly
prized by the natives for ointments,
and for other medicinal purposes.
The animal weighs from 1,000 to 1,'
600 pounds, and the meat is consider
ed a great relish. It looks and tastes
much like pork, and needs a good
deal of cooking. It is a strange fact
that the flesh keeps longer from de
cay than any other, and it is, there
fore, salted and preserved like pork.
Thev are caught with" harpoons by
the Indians who know their haunts
and customs, and it seems as if they
were becoming, more scarce every
year.

How the World May Be Destroyed.
Astronomy, in conjunction with
optics has been making some ex
traordinary discoveries in the last
few months. The spectroscope is a
wonderful aid to the telescope, and
as the latter brings to view distant
worlds, the former Indicates the
materials of which they are made

making reality the oceans of flame
which have often figured in hyper
bole.
A thought has occurred to us In
this connection, which we venture
to commend to the attention of onr
astronomical and geological friends
It is a well known fact in geology
that in past periods a vastly greater
heat pervaded the earth than at the
present time. The flora and fauna
of a tropical climate flourished at
the poles. Scientific men have been
ingenious in speculations about the
cause of the change. Some have as
cribed If to the internal heat of the
earths, which baa been gradually
evolved in successive ages. Oth
ers have attributed it to a- different
relation of the axis of the earth to
the plane of the ecliptic. Possibly
others may have suggested a change
in the internal constitution or the
sun, though we do not remember to
have seen it in our limited reading
But the phenomenon finds an easy
solution on this hypothesis.
During the last year a small star
in the constellation of the Northern
Crown suddenly became bright as a
star of the first magnitude. Astrono
mers at once resorted to the tele
scope to explain the mystery, but
could find only a confirmation of the
fact, with no hint of its cause. Opti
cians applied the spectroscope, and
at once the mystery was revealed. A
vast ocean ofbydrogreniwas in flame,
and its combustion melted the small
star, one of tbe most brilliant in the
firmament. The mathematicians
took up the data given them in the
increase ot light, and proved that for
any worlds of which this star may
be the central sun, there must have
been an increase of heat to seven
hundred and eighty times the nor
mal standard. If these worlds are
made of similar materials with our
earth, they mu-t have dissolved
under this intense heat, as in the
final catastrophe of ourglobe predict
ed by Peter.
Our thought, then, is simply tnis .
If by internal changes, or combus
tions in the central sun, the condi
tion of all the planets must be sen
sibly affected ; and, if our son is
liable to such changes as this star in
the Northern Crown (we know it
has untold volumes of hydrogen
above its surface,) why may not the
former extreme heat of the earth
have been due simply to atmospheric
changes iu the sun ? And why may
they not occur on a larger scale m me
future, heralding the final judgment?

TRUE CHARITY.
Sitting In a station, the other day.
I had a Tittle sermon preached to me
in the way I like ; and I'll report it
for your benefit, because it taught
one ef the beautiful lessons which
we should learn, and taught it in
such a natural, simple way, that no
one could forget it. It was a bleak,
snowy day; the ladies'room dark and
smoky ; and the dozen women all
looked cross, low-spirited or stupid.
I felt all three ; and thought, as I
looked around, that my fellow-beings
were a very unamiable and uninter
esting set.
Just then a forlorn old woman,
shaking with palsy, came in with a
basket of little wares for sale, and
went about mutely offering them to
the itters. Nobody bought any
thing, and the poor old soul stood
blinking at the door a minute, as if
reluctant to go out in the bitter
storm again. She turned presently,
and poked about the room, as if try
iug to find something ; and then a
pale lady in black, wbo lay as it
asleep on the sofa, opened her eyes,
saw the old woman, and instantly
asked in a kind tone, "Have you lost
anything, ma'am?"
"No, dear. I am looking for the
heatin' place, to have a warm 'fore
goes out again. My eyes is poor,
and I don't seem to find the furnace
nowheres."
"Here it is ;" and the lady led her
to the steam radiator, placed a chair,
and showed her how to warm her
feet.
"Well, now, ain't that nice?" said
the old woman, spreading her rag
ged mittens to dry.
"Tbanky, dear ; this is proper
comfortable, ain't it? I'm must

The lady smiled, went to the
counter, bought a cup of tea, and
some sort of food, carried it herself to

tuny and kindly as It the poor soul

"Won't you have a cup of hot tea?
It's vary comforting such a day as
this."
"Sakes alive ! Do they give tea at
this depot?" cried the old lady, in a
tone of innocent surprise, that made
a smile go round the room, touching
the glummest face like a stream of
sunshine. "Well, now,-this is jest
lovely," added the old lady, sipping
away with a relish. "This does warm
the cockles of my heart."
While she refreshed herself, tell
ing her story meanwhile, the lady
looked over the poor little wares in
the basket, bought soap and pins.
shoestrings and tape, and cheered the
old soul by paying well for them.
As I watched her doing this, I
thought what a sweet face she had.
though I'd considered her plain be

myself tLat I had grimly shaken my
head when the basket was offered to
me ; and, as I saw a look of interest.
sympathy and kindness, come into
the dismal faces all round me, I did
wish I had been the magician to call
it out. It was only a kind word in a
friendly act ; but somehow it bright

It changed the faces of a doien wo

hearts, for I saw many eyes follow
the plain, pale lady with sudden re
spect ; and when the woman with
many thanks, got up to go, several
persons beckoned to her, and bought
something, as ir they wished to repair
their first negligence.
Old beggar-women are not roman

gentleman present to be impressed
by the lady's kind act ; so it wasn't
done for effect, and no possible re

Inquiries and Answers
Horses Overreaching. How
can a horse be shod so as to prevent
it?
Pare the heel of the forward foot
low. This causes the horse as he
moves forward to raise the forwarriJ
foot quicker, and allows the hind
toot to remain longer, so mat Deiore
the hind foot comes forward the
fore foot is out of the Way. Also,
make the forward shoe long. If my
reason is not plain let any one try
the experiment, and they will be sat
isfied.
Hens Eating Feathers. What
will prevent it?
Your chickens are in a bad state o
health, and this inclines to raw meat.
Grass is good food. We recommend
purging with castor oil till no more
slime comes away, and feeding on
stale hrvad and ale to keep up the
strength We also advise a pill of
camphor, the size ot a pea, every
night.
Swelled Limbs. What will pre
vent swelling in a horses legs?
When a hoise stands long in the
stable his legs are apt to swell. No
horse which is not di-ahled by sick-tii-as
or lameness should be a'lowed
io stand long in the stable. Inaction
produces a dropsical condition of the
ilr pendent parts of the body, and the
obvious remedy is to exercise the
horse every d-iy.
Foot Rot Ointment. What will
make a k"1 ointment for foot rot ?
Take J.u i and Venice turpentine,
rour ounces ucu ; meit ana ana one
ounce of blue vitriol. This makes a
oiatment.

Hear what Physicians Say.
Many high-minded phsicians,who
are above the narrow predjudices
which govern too many of the pro
fession , and are willing to acknow
ledge merit wherever found, aro us
ing Christie's Ague Balsam in their
private practice, with satisfaction to
themselves, and undoubted ben
efit to their patients. One physi
cian writes : "I with confidence re
commend the Balsam as superior to
any other preparation."
Says another : "I have used it
with uniform success, and can con
fidently recommend it for all those
complaints for which it is offered as
a remedy."
Onoe more : "To my knowledge
it has never disappointed the reason
able expectations of those who have
used it.'
Still another writes : "I have no
hesitation in saying that it Is a safe,
convenient and very efficacious medicine."
WALTHAM WATCHES.
Card to Buyers.
As we are informed that some Watch Deal
ers are misrepresenting the qualitv of our
watches in the interest of other watches on
which a larg-er profit is made, wa desire to call
the attention ofbu ers to certain facts which
should insi'ire renewed confidence in the su-
tiennr aualitv and unrivaled cheapness of
Walibah Watches. We have an experience
of sixteen years, and our advantages are the
natural result (l the precedence acqn ired
the trade and the proportions to whi h our
manufactory has attained, making now twice
as many watches as an mc oiner manutactnr-
ers in this country comhined, and as no indus
trial law la better established than that which
cheapens tha cost of an article in proportion to
ine maaniiuoe 01 us pnjuuuiun, we are en
abled to offer our watches at less rates, qualitv
lor quality , than any others mads in this coun
try. The conditions which make this chesDness
possible are also favarable to the excellence of
ourwaicnes.
We have the best workers In every depart
ment tuai are ayauaoie, anu wuu macninerv
perfect and ample, we make by far the finest
grade of watches made in this country, sur-
D&ssinic all other Auii-ncan watch manufactur
ers by our ability to offer buyers the largest
variety iroiu wnicn to seieoiuuy style mat may
be required.
Our watches have long been the leading arti
cle in the r line, and are sold by nearly all re
spectable jewelers at a moueraie. arom.
With these facts as a basis theOompany con
fidently appeal to watch buyers to insist on
having their preference for waltham Watch
respected by that small portion of the trade
whose bos.ility to them arises from the fact
that they are sold at less profittban nv others.
Buyers should also be on their guard against
purchasing worthless awisa w atones, oearing
colorable imitations 01 our iraae-marss.
Not satisfied with copying onr trade-marks
as nearly as mey aare, tne swisa manuzacrar
?rs send large numbers of their refuse to this
market marked ' ' Union Watch Co. " ' 'Massa-
soit Watch (Jo ." and 'Great Western Watch
Cor.." and other deceptive American names.
Any dealer wno mcum menus uiese worcnea as
genuine American Watches means to cheat If
he can, and when represented to be as good as
the genuine the object is, of course, to sell
the in at three or four times their real value.
Buyers wbo do not know responsible jewel
srs should send for our descriptive catalogue
which contains much, useful information to
watch buyers. IX &aaM

Irritable Invalids.
Indigestion not only effects the physical
health but the dispositions and tempera of its
victims. The dyspeptic becomes, too, in
measure demoralised by his sufferings. He is
subject to fits ef irritation, sullenneas, or de
spair, as the case may be. A preternatural
sensitiveness which he cannot control, leads
him to misconstrue the words and acts of those
around him, and his intercourse even with
those nearest and dearest to bim is not nafre-
quently marked by exhibitions of testmess for
eign to hi, real nature. . These are the mental
ohenomena of the disease, for which the inva
lid cannot be held Justly responsible, but they
occasion mucn nousenniu aisooraiort. it is w
the interest of the home circle,. it is essential
to family harmony as well as to the rescue of
the principal sufferer from a state not far re
moved from incipient insanity, that these
symptoms of mental disturbance be promptly
removed. This csn only be done by removing
meir puysicai cause, a aeravgement oi tne
functions of the stomach and its allied viscera,
the liver and the bowels. Upon these three
important organs Hostetter's stomach Bitters
act simultaneously, producing a 'horongh and
salutary change in their condition. The veg
etable ingredients ni which the preparation is
composed are of a ronovating, regulating and
alterative character and the stimulant which
lends activity to their remedial virtues is the
purest and best that can be extracted irom the
most wholesome of ail cereals, viz: sound rye.
No dyspeptic can take this genial restorative
for a single week without experiencing a not
able improvement in his general health. Not
only will his bodily sufferings abate from day
to day. but his mind will recover rapidly from
its restlessness and irritability, and this happy
change will manifest itself in his demeanor to
all around him.
