Can farmer Stand the Tax?
We are not thinking, nbw,
ot the Internal revenue tax
wicb so many tnanage to evade
nor ol our 4'State, county,
town and road" taxes, which
we can not avoid. These are
comparatively moderate, and
still Ihe world moves on.
There is however, another
tax, though it is not called by
that name, front which te of
us can hope to escape, and
which is entitled to the gra
vest consideration., It is cut
ling into our substance liktt a
two edged sword 'sn one side
is id!enei& m tiwrgtber extrav
agance. Worst -of all, the
sword is wielded hj our own
flash and blood, by , those who
love us, and whom we lovr
by our own daughters.
The reader will please no
tice that we mike no assertions
in tho heading of this article;
we only ask a question. We
are not, ourselves, prepared to
give a definite answer; but
we think there is at least
grave cause lor anxiety in the
habits and tastes of farmers'
daughters. On our drive to
town this afternoon, we met
three young women, daugh
ters of ordinary farmers men
who have the uiual struggle
lo make both ends meet, and
who practice the usual econo
mies in their households and
on their farms, these dame1s
were so dressed that, at a Ii tie
distance, they looked like the
daughters of the rich city peo
ple who board in our neighbor
hood in the summer. As they
came near, it was plain to see
that they had economized in
material as they had squander
ed in form and color, "and this
marked a wide difference be
i ween their brigWter-i.xam piers.
Yes, save as they might, there
was not one of them who had
not on her person counting
everything fi'om bottom gaiters,
to what Mr. Punch calls "Chig
non f ense," and hat feathers
the value of a first-class mow
ing machine, with renper at
tachment. If this were the
end, it would not be so bad;
but it is only the bad begin
ning. It is not the capital in
vested in finery that tells on
our fortunes, but the awful in
terest in the shape of renewals.
A first-class two dollars ''black
hair" we might stand and be
done with it, but the fashion
changes, and black hair wears
nut, and the next style is worse
yet, and costs three dollars,
and eo it coes from the crown
ot the head to the soles of the
feel; there ia the same eternal
Kritid mat wears away cloth
ing and finery alike. The more
it costs, the more we must
6pend iti repairs; and your
modern country Miss, with her
attire, is apt to bet a well dredg
ed mortgage upon their father's
tartu, and to become a sort ol
ornamental mill-stone about
the neck ot the man who

The Seward Medal.
George F. Robinson hds re
ceived the medal awarded te
him by Congress in 1871 for
saving the life of Secretary
Seward vtiieti attacked by the
assassin Payne, on the night ot
the 14th of April. 1865. The
medal was made at the United
States Mint in Philadelphia, at
a cost el $1,400. On the ob
verse side of (be medal Mr.
Seward is represented as lying
in bis bed, with the cfjrtain
drawn. Standing at the side of
the bed is Payne, with art up
lifted dagger in one hand,- and
with the other clutching the
throat ot Robinson. On ttie re
verxe side is a bust ot Robinson;
above hia head a wreath ol flow
er, and on each side the follow
ing inscription: "For his heroic
conduct on the 14th- thy ol
April, 1865, in saving the lire of
Hon. Wm. U.Seward, then Sec
retary of Slate ol the United
Siatet."
Small Beginning.
There was once a New Eng
land lad, named Erastus B.
Bigelow, who began life very
poor. But the boy had a tal
ent for work, and was ingeni
ous and industrious. A good
old farmer used to pat the lit-
tie fellow on the head, and ask
bim, jokingly, to come over
to his place and learn to be a
armer.
The lad believed that busi
ness was business, and turned
the offer over and over in his
mind. At length he decided
to take up with it, and getting
consent at home, he walked
away to the farm-house in per
feet confidence in the farmer's
word. Mr. T , though a
good deal surprised, set the
boy at work, expecting he
would give out before night
and trot ofi home. But. the
child performed faithfully his
tasks, and was delighted with
all around bim, especially a
pet lamb named Dolly, which
he took a great fancy to. Dol
ly would follow him about his
work, 'and the boy had always
a caress for her. Finally, when
Saturday night' came, the boy
ventured to 'suggest that he
should make some arrange
ments about hia wages. The
larmer with a merry twinkle
in bis eye, asked the child his
terms. The boy had his mind
made up. lie offered to worn
for him six months it he would
give him Dolly at the eud of
that time. The moderate de
mand was accepted, and the
boy worked faithfully lor his
beloved pet. tiut. finally a
trouble arose in his mind. Oe
would be like the man who
won an elephant in thelottory.
What could lie do with iif
How could he feed it after he
took it away from the farm?
It gave the child many anxious
hours, and the workmen on the
place rather enjoyed increas
ing his perplexity. Finally
the farmer sug'geste'd that he
should give Up1 Dolly and take
a rtout pair of boots and
sheep's-gray cloth for a suit in
place ol her. The little fellow
wisely accepted the proposal,
though not without many a tug
at his heart string's. After bis
sjx months were up, he had
proved so useful that he was
hired over for the season at a
dollar a week Mnd bord. The
farmer gave hid, besides, a
bright silver dollar when be
left him, and these first earn
ings were the foundation stone
of a great fortune he was after
wards able to itruass. It was
fairly laid by honest, faithful
industry, ana this is a capital

Presbyterian
County Paper.
We have expressed views
very similar to the following,
from the Cincinnati Trade Lists,
and they are all true:
"A gentleman writes that bis
county paper is so poor (bat
he had stopped it; therefore
sends os three dollars for the
Trade List. We repeat that
we don't want Subscribers on
those terms. A man'j county
paper is worth more to him
than any other paper iri the
world,or, if it is not, it is his own
fault It the county paper is
properly encouraged, it iriay
be relied upon; lor information
Of more value to the people in
whose interest it is issued
than can be found in all the
city paper of the United
States. No man can afford to
stop the paper that publishes
the official advertisements of
hist cbiinty the public iales,
markets, court news' and oth
er local intelligence. II the
paper is poor, the people are
mor at fault nan the publish
era, for not giving it liberal
patronage. However poof the
paper may be, it is alwavr
worth more than ft costs' to'
those iateresi edinits locality.'
Work and Success.
the world over the men
who work win. It has always
heon so, and always will be.
They who despise labor despise
themselves. The drones in the
hive of humanity ate stung to
death by the consciousness of
their bwh iolly. Still, in the
lace of self-enforced moralsi
ol indisputable facts,there have
been and are men and women
claiming rdisfiuclion because
they d nothing imagining
idleness to be an honor. Be
cause they are zeros they fan
cy they make a figure in the
world, forgetful that zeros add
naught to the sum ol progress
and prosperity. Fortunately
and .fitly in this era of uncom
on sense, rarer lh&n genius al
ways, the conceited do-noth
ings are disappearing fust; by
a normal law, too, since Nature
does not keep what she jdoes
tiot need. The days of Show
and Sham, of Title and Theory,
are rapidly passing. Civiliza
tion has come to mean reason,
truth; practicability. This gen
eration says to every man; "I
care not what you are; but
what you can do? If idle or in
efficient'; stand aside for your
betters who can and will work.
I judge Cach Hnd all by their
labor and its fruits!"
A Professor went out for a
sail. When the boat was some
distance from the land he said
to the boatman: "Do you
know anything about history?''
No," replied the boatman.
"Then," replied tne professor
"half your life is lost." Alter
a little while he askec, "Do
you understand mathematics?1
"No." replied the sailor. "Well
then, three-quarters of your
life is lost." Just as he spoke
a pufl of wind upset the boat
and capsized the professor and
boatman in the water. The
latter cried, "Do you under
stand swimming?" "No," gasp
ed the pro'essor. "Then," re
plied the boatman, "all your
life is lost;"
One of "Mark Twain's" latest
jokes is that which he perpe
trated at a dinner to which he
was receiltly invited. He bad
been notified that his health
would be drunk during the
evening, and ic was. But
Mark was armed and equipped,
lie drew frbtii his pocket a
large roll of manuscript, and
proceeded tb read to his as
tomsbed auditors that he was
entirely taken by surprise,
wai wholly unprepared to re
ply, and 6o on, as ii cutomarv
with alter-dinner speakers.
Such a very Twainish joke
could not, of course, pas
without appreciation, and as
soon as the momentary per
plexity had subsided, roars ol
laughter testified to the sue
cess of the hit. If only all
speakers were as honest as
Mark Twain!

Some years ago. when Dr;
Lanman had stopped publish
ing his Dictionary of Congresej
he found that lie had accumu

arranging them in a series of
volumes, he sold them to Jay
Cooke, and when the business1
affairs of that gentleman be
came involved he received art

and the letters will Boon be
