For years, Henry Ward,
You've been serving the Lord, ( ?j
And I hear you've becii paid pretty well ;
But now, Henry ard,
You've forsaken the Lord,
Antl turned your attention to II 1.
By the Spirit and Word,
Sharpe's rifle and sword,
You attempted the strongholds of Satan to
But now, Henry Ward, level,
You "turn tail" on tho Lord,
nd go to "soft-soaping" tho D 1. ;
You are right, Henry Ward,
Since you can't fool the Lord,
To make peace with your master, Auld Cloo
For you know, Henry Ward, tie,
If you get your reward,
In bis realms you will soon be on duty.

HOW SUT LOVEGOOD'S DADDY
ACTED HOSS.
What Came of It.
"Hold that ere hoss down to the
yearth.' "He's a spreadin' his tail
to fly ndw!' "Keep him where he
is.' "Woa.' . "Woa, shavetail.'
"He's a dancing a jig.'
These and like expressions were
addressed to a queer-looking, long-
legged, 6hort-bodied, small-headed,
white-haired, hog-eyeu, tunny sort
of a genius, fresh Irom some sec
ond-hand clothing store, and mount
ed on "Tarpoke," a nick-tailed, long
poor horse, half-brandy, halt-devil,
and enveloped all over in a perfect
network ot bridle reins, crupers,
martingales, straps, surcingles, and
red teretin, who had reined up in
front of Pat IN ack's grocery, among
a crowd of wild mountaineers, full
oi fight and bad whisky.
"I say, you darned ash-carts, 11st
keep yer shirts on, will ye? You
never seed a rale hoss till I rid up.
Tarpole is jist next to the best
hoss that ever shelled nubbins, and
he's dead as a still worm, poor old
tickytail.' .
"What killed him, Sut?' asked an
anxious inquirer. . '
jist. died died a s'tandin' up, at
that, warn't that good pluck?
Froze stiff: no, not that adzactly,
but starved fust, and then froze af
terwards, so stiff, that when dad
and me pushed him over, ; ho jist
stuck out so, (spreading his arms
and legs,) like a carpenters bench,
and we waited seventeen, days for
him to thaw afore we could skin
him. . Well, thar we was-dad an'
Die (counting his fingers,) Dad an'
me, Sal an' Jake, (Fool Jake, we
used to call him, for short,) an'
Phineas, an' Simeon, an' Jonas, an'
Charlottean, an' Calline Jane', an'
Cashus Henry Clay, an' Noah Dan
Webster, an' me an' the twin gals,
an' Catherine Second, an' Cleopa
try Antony, an' Jane Lind, an' Tom
Bullion, an' the baby, an' the pros
pect, an' m arm herself, all left with
out any hoss to crap with. That
was a nice mess for a 'spectable
lamily' to be ! slashin' about in,
warn't it? I be durned if I didn't
feel like stealin' a hoss sometimes.
Well, we Waited an' rested, an'
waited until well'into strawberry
time, hopin' some stray hos'4 mout
come along, but dog my cats if eny
sich luck as. that ever comes whar
dad is,., he's so dratted mean, an'
azy, an' ugly, an' savage, an' tri.
flm. " ;
"Well, one nite, dad he lay awake
all nite a snortin' an' a roan' an
whiBperin' at mam, and next morn
in' sez he 'Sut, 111 tell you what
we'll do ; I'll be hoss myself, nnd
pull the plough, while you drive
me, and we'll break np corn ground
and then the old quilt (that's maml
and the brats kin plant it or let It
alone, jist as they d n please.'
oo oui we goes to the pawpaw
a.1 1 a .
inicKet, anu peeled a right smart
chance of bark, and mam and made
gears for dad, and they become
him mightily; then he would have
a "bridle, so I gits an old 'umbrella
what I found it's a little fork
piece of iron, sorter like unto pitch
fork, ye know an' we bent an'
twisted it sorter untu a bridle bit,
small shape fdad wanted it kurb.na
f he 3aidhe hadn't' worked for some
time, an.' might sorter feel his oats
an' go to cavortin. Well, when
we got the bridle all fixed on dad,
he chomped the bit jist like a rale
hoss (he always was a mosfr com
plicated durned old fool,' eny hdW,
and mam always said so, when he
warn't about,) then I put on. the
gears; an' out dad an' me goes to
the field, I a Jeadin' dad by the
bridle, and lotin the gopher plough
on my back. Vhen we . come to
the fence, I let down' a gap an'
made Hjad mad, ho wanted to jump
the fencd on all fours, hoss way, I
hitch him on to the gopher, and
away we went, dad leanin forward
to his pullin right peart, and we'
made sharp plowin' dad goin' rite
over the bushes and sprouts, same
as a rale hoss, the only difference
is, he went on two legs.
"Presently we cum to a 6asafrac
pafets, and dad, to keep up his kar
acter as a ho6s, bulged square into
it, and tore down a hornet's nest
nigh onto as big as a boss's head,
and all the tribe kivered him right
strate. He rared and kicked once
or twice, and fotched a squeal wos
nor ary hoss in the district, and sot
into runnin' away jist as natural as
ever you seed. I let go the lines,
and hollered woa, -dad, woa I but
you mout as well of said woa to a
locomotive. Gewhilikins, how he
run! When he cum to a bush, he'd
clear tho top of it, , gopher and all;
p'raps he thort there mout be an
other settlement of bald hornets in
it, and that it was safer to go over
than thrue, and quicker dun, every
now and thenwd paw one side of
his head with lust one fore leg and
then t'other, and then he'd gin him
self an open-handed slap, that
sounded like a wagon whip, and
running all the time, and karrien
that gopher just about as fast and
nigh Irom tho yearth as ever a
gopher was carried, I swar. When
he cum to the fence he busted
right thrue it, taring down nigh on
to seven pannels, scatterih and
breakin the rales mightily, and
here he left the gopher, geers,
single-tree and klevis, all mixed up,
net worth a dura. Most ov his
shirt stuck on to the splintered end
ov a broken rale, and nigh unto a
pint ov hornets staid with the shirt,
a stinging it all over, the balance
on em, about a gallon an a half,
kept on with dad. He seemed to
run jist adzactly as fast as a horn
et could fly, for it war, the tightest
race I ever did see. Down throe
the grass they all went, the hornets
making it look sorter like a smoke
all around dad's bald head, and be
with nuthin on but the bridle and
nigh onto a yard of plow lino a
sailin' behind him.
"I seed now that lie was airain'
fur a swimmin' hole, in the kreek,
whar the bluff is over twenty-five
feet perpendicular to the water,
and it's nigh onto ten feet deep.
To keep up his karacter as a hoss,
when he got to the bluff he jist
leaped oil, or rather jist kept on
runnin. Kersplunge into the creek
he went; I seed the water fly plum
above the bluff from whar I was.
Now, rite thar, boys, he overdid the
thing if that war what he was ar
ter for there's nary hoss ever fold
ed durned fool enough toi leap over
such a place; a cussed mule might
have dun it, but dad warn't acting
mule. I crept up to the edge and
looked over, there was old ' dad's
bald head, for all the world ' like a
peeled onion, a bobbin' up and
down, and the hornets a sailin' and
a circlm round, '.turkey' buzzard
fashion, and every once in a while,
one and sometimes ten, 'ud make
a dip at dad's head. "He kept up a
right peart' dodging .under, sum-
times they'd hit the water, and the
water was ; kivered with drowned
hornets. 'What on the yearth ar
y doin' thar, dadf eez I." -'Dptft
(dip) you see those infernal var
mints dip alter me?' ,What,'6ez
I, 'thenj are hoss-flies thar, ye ain't
really afeared of them, are ye?'
iioss-nies n j i' sez dad; 'they're
raie aipj genuine bald hornets,
you dip .infernal cussl' 'Well,
uaa, you ii nave to stay thar till
nite; an arter they go to roost, you
cum home an I'll feed you. And
knowing dad's unmodified natur. I
brake from, them parts and sorter

cum mj me copper mines, l staid
hid out until the 'next arternoon,
when I seed a feller travellin, and
sez JjWhat was going on at the
cabin this side of the creek when
you! passed it?' lWhyvnuthin much,
onlr a man was setting in the door
with nary shirt on, and a woman
was" greasing his back and arms,
and his head was about as big as a
tefifgallon keg, and he hadn't the
first: sign of an eye, all smooth.''
'That man is my dad,' sez I. . 'Been
much fitia : in this neighborhood
lately?' sez the traveler rather drily,-
'Nunwuth speaking of, per
sonally or Darticularlv.' hrz T.
Now, boys, I hain't seen dad since

in the next ten years. Let's drink.'

was stooping to get into the doc-
gery door 'with a mighty mixed
crowd at his heels. .
[From the Pittsburg Republican]
Incident at the White House.
A friend, recently on a visit to
Washington, relates -an incident
which fell beneath his notice at a
Presidential reception which he
had the hprior of attendino. that is
so illustrative of the prompt busi-.
nqsa habits and kindly feelings of
Andrew Johnson that we are feign
to publish as nearly as he related
it as possible. He said:
Alter arriving in the ante-room
of the Presidential mansion, we
had to wait until notified to
enter the President's room.: During
the interval my friend and myself
noticed a dapper little, sandy com
plexioned, intellectual-looking,
nervous man, pacing backward and
forward ever and anon pausinc
and making notes on a bundle of
through his hair, he. would resume
his march, j His friend wispered.:
inac gentleman seems peculiarly
nervous ; something of a deep im
port rests upon his mind , Just at
this moment the usher threw, open
the door, and we entered. The
President, after blandly receiving
and passing tho : compliments of
the . morning, said : " 'Gentlemen,
please excuse me, two ladies are
approaching.' We stood back.
An elderly lady approached, ac
companied by , one much younger
who, from an appearance, might be
her daughter, with an infant in her
arms. Ihe nervous gentleman ap
proached the President, and said :
'Mr. President, this lady's hus
band is under sentence for a crime,
which I have here the documents to
show was not so flagrant as was
testified to, and that one of the
witnesses perjured himself'
'Stop, sir,' said Mr. Johnson, 'I
received those documents, or their
contents, two days ago, and have
carefully examined them. This
ladys husband is pardoned.'
The lady, so overcome with the
feelings which welled up from her
heart that she was incapable of ut
terance, was likely to lamt.
'John,'8a.id the President, 'seat
that lady.' She took her seat and
attempted to speak her thoughts,
but her emotions were too over-
owering for utterance, and the
'resident cut her short by saying :
'No thanks, madam no thanks.
I have but done my duty ; be com
posed and retire, for I have other
duties quite as urgent and impor
tant as yours.'
As he turned away,' said our in
formant, 'we observed a tear trickle
down his cheek. No ! matter what
we thought.' - " .
Facts Worth Remembering.
It is worth while for all farmers
everywhere to remember that tho
rough culture is .better than three
mortgages on their farm. . ;
'That an effective war against
weeds is five times less expensive
than a defensive one. ;
That good fences always pay
better than . lawsuits with neighbors.-

Cure for Asthma.
In a late number of the Country
Gentleman we find the following
recipe for asthma, communicated
by Mi. W. 0. Hickok of Harris
burg, Pa.
I have a son, six years old, that
had the asthma in the most dis?
tressing form for some three or four
months, when he was ritiA rip Ivn
years old. . We tried everything we
couiu nereoi without getting relwt
till we were told to rub his nenlr
and breast with petroleum, nnd we
tried it both crude and refined, ex
periencing verv speedv relief and
a final and permanent cure; for he
nas not once had a return of-It, arid
is now a very healthy child.
