All in a bed of roses
The little babe reposes;
Tbair criinaon-henrted lire
-To warmth in him inspire;
Tbeir Persian odors, creeping
Itonnd baby Bleeping sleeping,
No avenue discover
To him, theif little lover.
Nurse need not frame a story,
For baby's bedtime glory,
Of elf, and sprite, and fairy,
That dwell in flower-enps airy;
Deaf are the ears of baby,
Except to screphs, maybe;
And elves may stay unbidden
All in the roses hidden.
Close the piano lightly,
Turn down the lamp less brightly.
For mamma, crushed, bereaven,
Need play no more at even,
To see his blue eyes glisten,
His dawning mind just waking,
And then the world forsaking.
White shall make no intrusion,
Roses in red profusion
We chow for baby's bower
Himself the fairest flower
All pallid beauty keeping
For other's couch of sleeping;
Roses, red-lipped and sweetest,
Are fittest and oompletest.
Fast locked the baby's senses
Rut life divine commencesi
And could our tear-blurred vision
Rut pierce to land Elysian,
And see the small head golden,
To Jesus' breast close holden,
Ah! we should murmur never,
Forever and forever.
BABY EARNEST. Miscellaneous.
THE NIMBLE BANK-NOTE.
The following amusing scene, which
occurred recently in an American family,
will be found not uninteresting. The
ciutfi xuie is putvvu vj uivuvj, uie prune
mover in such affairs. An eye-witness
recite the affair in . the following
One evening that I took tea with a
friend of mine, while we were seated at
the table, Mx. Baker, my friend's hus
band, while absently feeling in his vest
pocket, found a five dollar note which he
Lad no recollections of putting there.
Hallo!" he exclaimed, ' "that is no
place for you. I should have put you
in my pocket book. Here, wife, don't
you want some ready money!" and he
threw the note across the table to her.
"Many thanks," she replied; "money
is always acceptable, although I have
xto present need for it." She folded the
note and put it under the edge of the tea-
tray, and then proceeded to pour out the
tea and attend to the wants of her
At her right sat Mrs. Eator, or Aunt
Susan, whom we all know as an acquaint
ance, wno, from time to time, spent a
week with Mrs. Raker. Her visit was
just at an end, and she was about to re
turn home that evening. -
As Mrs. Raker was pouring out her tea,
it occurred to her that she was in her
aunt's debt for certain small matters,
and when she had the opportunity, she
pushed the note under her plate saying:
"Here, aunty, take this five dollars in
part payment of my debt."
'Very well," she replied, "but the
money does not belong to me. I owe you
fifteen dollars, my dear Grace, which you
lent me last Saturday. I had to pay the
taxes on my little house, and had not the
ready money, and Grace lent it to me,"
explained Aunt Susan.
Grace, an orphan, was a cousin to
Mrs. Raker. She and her brother Frank
boarded with her,, and made a very
pleasant addition to, the .family circle.
She was studying musio,and her brother
was clerk in a mercantile establishment.
As soon as Aunt Susan received the
Bote, she handed it to Grace saying:
"I will give you this now on account,
and the rest as soon as I get it."
"All right," answered Graoe.laughing,
"and since we all seem in the humor of
paying our debts, I will follow suit.
Frank, X owe you something for music
jou bought me; here is part of it," and
ahe threw the bank-note across the tea
table to her brother who sat opposite.
. We were all highly amused to see how
the note wandered arouud the table.
. "This is a wonderful note," said Mr.
Raker; "I only wish somebody owed me
, something, and I owed somebody some
thing, so that I might come into the
' ..." . .- '
Xou can," said Frank. "I owe Mrs.
Raker or you, it's all the same for my
board; I herewith pay you part of it"
Amid general laughter, Mr. Baker
took the note and playfully threw
again to his wife, saying:
"It's yours again, Lucy, because what
, belongs to me belongs to you. It has
. completed the round, and we have all
lad the benefit of it."
"And now it must go around again,"
xeplied she gayly, "I like to see money
circulate; it should never he idle. Aunt
Susan, you take it Now I have paid
you ten dollars.
"Dear Grace, here is another fivs dol
lars on my account," said Aunt Susan,
landing it to Grac. .
"And you, Frank,! have paid ten dol
lars for the music you bought me," said
CJracu, handing it to Lor brothel.
"And I pay you ton dollars for my
Txjurd'he continued, aiid the note once
snore ranted in Mr. Baker's hands. ,
The exchanges were quick as thought,
. Will we were convulsed with laughter.
1'Was there ver ojrrtulnrf nt an
changcf" ec)miiivl Gnu-. H ;.i Jr.
Ws all floimewse!" cried Mr. Baker.
Not in thehjnrt," answered his wife.
"It's -all quite right"
"Certainly," said Frank; "when the
money belonged to you, you could dis
pose of it as you would ; I have the same
right; it is a fair kind of exchange,
though very uncommon."
"It shows the use of money," said
Aunt Susan. "It mnkes the circuit of
the world, and brings its value to every
one who touches it"
"And this note has not finished its
work yet, as I will show you, my dear
bueband,if you will give it to me aain,"
said Mrs. Raker.
"And I give it to you, Aunt Susan
I owed you fifteen dollars, and I have
paid my debt"
"lou have, my dear . friend, without
doubt; and now, my dear Grace, I pay
you my indebtedness, with many thanks
for yenr assistance."
"I take it with thanks, Aunt Susan,"
replied Grace; " and now the time has
come when this wonder-working, this in
exhaustable rich bank note must be di
vided, because I do not owe Frank five
dollars more. How much have I to pay
"Two dollars and Bixty-two cents,
"Can you change it?"
"Lt me see; sixty-two, thirty-eight
yes, there is the change; the spell is
broken, Grace, and you and I have di
vided the spoils,"
Hi This bank note beats all X ever saw.
How much has it paid? Let us count
up, said grace. "Mrs. Baker gave Aunt
Susan fifteen dollars, which Aunt Susan
gave me; I gave Frank twelve dollars
and sixty-two cents; Frank gave Mr.
Raker ten dollars altogether fifty-two
dollars and sixty-two oents."
"It's all nonsense, I tell you," cried
Mr. Raker again; "you all owe each
other what you owed before."
"You are deceived, my dear, by the
rapid, unbroken race this little sum has
made; to me it is as clear as daylight,"
replied Mrs. Raker.
"If it is all nonsense, how could the
note which you gave, Mrs. Raker, if
nothing to me or you, be divided be
tween us two?" asked Grace.
Mr. Raker did not seem to see it very
clearly, but the others did. ' and they
often relate this little history for the
amusement of their friends.
CURE FOR DISCONTENT.
A Philadelphia gentleman became tired
of his house, which he had built for him
self in the country, and determined to
sell it. He instructed an auctioneer,
famous for his descriptive powers, to ad
vertise it in the papers for private sale,
but to conceal the location, telling per
sons to apply at his office. In a few
days the gentleman happened to see the
advertisement, was pleased with the ac
count of the place, showed it to his wife,
and the two concluded it was just what
they wanted, and they would secure it at
once. ' So he went to the office of the
auctioneer and told him the place he had
advertised was such a one as he desired,
and he would purchase it The auc
tioneer burst into a laugh, and told him
that that was the description of his own
house where he was living. He read the
advertisement again, pondered over the
"grassy slopes,'' "beautiful - vistas,"
"smooth lawn," "fine garden," "splen
did fruit," "good neighborhood," etc.,
and broke out; - "Is it possible? Well,
make out my bill for advertising and ex
penses for I wouldn't sell the place now
for three times what it cost me."
MAKING OTHERS HAPPY.
A mother who wan in the habit of ask
ing her children, before they went to
bed, what they had done that day to
make others happy, found her' twin
daughters silent The question was re-,
peated ' ;
"I can think of nothing good for this
day, mamma, only one of my mates was
tappy because she left of head of the
class and I smiled on her and ran and
kissed her, so she said I was good.
The other spoke even more timidly.
"The little girl that sits by me has
lost a brother. I seen her hide her face
in her book and cry. ' I felt sorry and
laid my head by her'sand eried too. She
looked up and put her arms about me
and seemed comforted, but I don't know
why I did her any good. " '
"Come, my darlings, into my arms,"
said the mother; "to rejoice with those
that repoioe, and weep with those that
weep, is to obey our blessed Redeemer!"
CURE FOR CONSUMPTION.
A' correspondent "writes as follows
about the power of a well-known plant:
"I have discovered a remedy for pul
monary consumption, it bas cored a
number of oases aftor they 'had com
menced bleeding at the lungs, and the
hectic fluxh wna already on the cheek.
After trying this remedy to my satisfac
tion, I have thought that philanthropy
required that I Bhould let it be kuown to
the world. It is tue common mullen,
steeped strong and sweetened with cof
fee sugar, and drank freely. The herb
should be gathered before the end of

AN INDIAN LEGEND.
The following is .told of a
sheet of water known as t ba Spirit Lake,
in Central Wisconsin: Matly years' ago,
ere the foot of the pale face had trod the
soil which the red man claimed, as
rrmnw tmltou rlitfllt Tip HI Uitl IrkAl,
for in this lake were flsh, and amonirthe j
bluff sand in tlio neighboring forest were
game; and the warrior, when tired of
the chase, could sock pleasure and find
it, bathing in the clear, bright waters,
which he ouly, under the Great Spirit,
claimed, and with his light canoe could
take his love out boating, Indeed, it
seemed to the happy red man a paradise,
as well it might.
As fortune would have it a French
man, more daring than his fellows, wan
dered from the settlements and found
the lake; he indulged with the Indians
in the pleasure and disappointment of
the chase, and lingered long among
them. When first he came among the
red men, he was charmed by the beauty
and loveliness of an Indian maiden, and
made love tr- her.
She loved in return, and when the au
tumn leaves began to fall and the feath
ered songster to fly away to a southern
home, tlio French hunter sought an in
terview with the aged chief, her father,
to ask his consent to the hoped-for mar
riage. But at the same time a young warrior,
who had looked with jealous eyes upon
the Frenchman, and had often in Vain
sought to win the affections of the fair
maiden of his tribe, came to the old chief
and asked for his daughter's hand. The
chififtair, disdaining partiality to the
warrior on account of the fact that he
was one of his tribe, stepped to the bank
of the lake with the two suitors, and
pointing to a high and rugged looking
tree upon the opposite shore he said
He of you who shall first bring me
an eaglet from the nest in yonder tree,
shall be the successful suitor."
When the old chieftain ceased speak
ing, the hunter and the warrior sprang
into their light canoes, and were across
the lake in a trice. The warrior struck
the shore first, but the hunter was the
first to climb the crags and tree, and was
descending with the eaglet, when the
faithless warrior pushed him from a
limb on which he stood, and the hunter
was dashed in pieoes on the ragged rocks
The Indian maiden, who had watched
with painful interest the different trans
actions preceding, when she saw her
lover foil) leaped far out into theslake
with a wild, piteous cry, and sank into
the clear waters, never to rise again.
The supersticions red men fancy that
the spirit of the departed maiden rules
the storms, and that it would be death
for an Indian to risk himself upon the
waters of the lake. "
A FEMALE FIEND.
The woman whose nature is so nearly
fiendish as it is possible to conceive of
lives at Rostrop, La. Her name is
Luna McRca, and she is now in prison
upon the charge of murdering a small
child. At her preliminary examination
the testimony indicated that she had
taken a diabolical pleasure in killing the
child by inches and after the accomplish
ment of the deed to have felt no com
punctions or any of the ordinary dislike
of a murderer to having the body of the
victim in any place to serve as a remind
er. The woman's own son, a little boy
of 12, was the principal witness against
her. She made this mere child dig up
and move the body of her victim two or
three times within the space of a week.
She first hurried the murdered child in
garden, and when its disappearance
hod excited comment and caused the in
stitution of a search, she attracted the
attention of the officers to another point,
she herself accompanying them, first
telling her little son to dig up the body
in their absence and hide it in the chim-
The boy performed this task, and
at night he was made to carry the body
to a cotten pen and subsequently to a
thicket, where it was finally discovered.
During the course of the trial, with her
own son giving such testimony of her
atrocity, the woman evinced little feel
ing of any kind, passing through the' or
deal with an unruffled demeanor. '
THE VALUE OF BEETS FOR STOCK.
Having planted last year a small piece
of light, loamy land, well manured, with
mangolds or, as some term them, the
the rate of thirty-fiva tons per acre.. The
first of December I commenoed, feeding
them to three cows,, at the rate of one
peck per day each, measured, after they
were out, together with oue foddering
of hay per day, the remainder of their
fodder being cut straw. ,1 ooutinued
this feed for three months, and the cows
at this time were in better condition
than they were the previous winter, at
the same time in the winter, when they
had been fed wholly on hay; they also
gave more milk. In my opinion beets
are the most profitable root that we can
grow for stock feed. The sugar-beet I
have no dodbt hemost nutritions, al
though I think the mangolds(the most
profitable to cultivate, as the yield is
much larger. If our farmers would
grow more roots than they have been in
the habit of raising to feed their Btock
during our long and cold winters their
hay would hold out better, and their
stock, I think, would be in better condi
tion in flush and health. A large amount
of straw and coarsl fodder may be fad to
stock if we have some kind - of roots to
feed with it. Some will probably say
tout it tunes too ruucii manura to grow
these roots. Try a small piece of light,
loamy hind with them, and in my opin
ion you win not think that you have
wasted your manure. Correspondence

P" I appears that violet gray wool
ei stockings, after having been worn
less than six hours caused redness of the
skin and permanent pnetules, in connec
tion with feverish symptoms and consti
pation. The same results followed
after the stockings had been treated
with boiling water. Similar symptoms
were produced by gray woolen shirts
next the skin, and by the red binding
of others. The opinion of Dr. Hagar,
of Berlin, is that the analine oolors are,
as a rule, poisonous in their action upon
tlio skin, as, he asserts, has also been
established in regard to ooraline. He
recommends, therefore, that woolen gar
ments colored with analine dyes should
not be worn next the skin, and suggests,
as a test, that a portion of the wool be
heated to boiling in a test tube, with 90
per cent of aloohol, and if the latter ac
quires a red," violet, or violet blue tint,
the coloring matter is suspicious.
