A Soiree at Barfield.
The Troy ttmlyct says: He wore
long hair and a strong breath. Iiis
clothes had been newer and cleaner,
and his hat had a rim as wide ns a
good-fi/.ed umbrella. lie smiled up
( n us when wc asked him what was
his favor it beverage. He answered
that he'd swallow a little rye. What
he called a "littlo" didn't seem to be
the barkeeper's meaning of the word.
Taking an ordinary tumbler full ol
ne at one swallow is a feat that the
common consumer would scarcely call
"little." "When he had swallowed
the liquid he turned to us and re
marked: "That's bully good rye.
I swar I ain't, drunk any such rye as
that in ten years. Then it was in
Tom Scone's, dowu in Bnrhvld,
Arkansaw. Was you ever in Arkan
saw ? No! Well,, it's a* might} lively
State. 1 never see a pootier row than
occurred at Tom's last Christmas
night i. 11 years ngo. It was the most
enjoyal le affair yon ever see. They
were having a. dance there that night,
and the whisky was plenty, and after
awhile 'loin began to cheer, and
whoop, and jump, ar.d he outs with
his pistol and fires into the crowd pro
miskus like. The bali hit Sammy
Carlccr on the cheek and tjum.pro
menaded over to his wife and landed
in her jaw. I guess she didn't talk
with her usual volubility for a few
weeks. Tom's fil ing was a signal for
all the boys to draw their shooting
irons and bewies, and the woik got
mighty interesting. Tom Carker's
brother Nate inserted his bowie in
Tom Scone's stummik, and Bill Bent,
ho raised a chair and filed it at Nate,
who dodged it the neatest you ever
sec, and it took Miss Belle Drew in
the place where women put the most
cotton in their dresses. This roused
the dander of .Mi.-s. Drew, and, upset
ting the table, she tare a leg out of it
and sailed in ns pooty as ever you ?ce
I anything. I jest wish there had been
I a painter (hero to have painted that
scene and handed that woman's pio
tur down to future times. The way
j she laid out the boys was a caution. I
bet she broke more heads that night
than she ever broke heai Us In her
bounding around she upset the lamp,
and in the darkness the firing was
! in ore pi omi.sk us than ever, and Miss
Drew sho got wounded so hndly that
she died in a half hour. 1 never did
know who drew the trigger that caus
ed her death. But 1 had to leave
town suddenly that night, and I ain't
never been back there since. I don't
suppose I'll ever again see such a
pooty little scrimmage as that was, It
was one of the pleasant affairs that
only happen once in n lifetime." And
he sighed sadly and shook his head
and wiped his nose on the back of his
hand. Wc bade him good day, and
left him to think of the vanished joys
of life in Arkansaw.

Man issogieat that his greatness
appears even in the conciousness of
his misery. A tree docs not know it
self to be miserable. It is true that
it is. misery indeed to know one's self
to be miserable; but then it is great
ness also. In this way all man's
miseries go to prove his greatness.
They are the miseries of a mighty
potentate, ol a dethroned monarch.

Faith addresses itself to man's
wholo being; it sounds every depth, it
touches every spring; it calls back the
soul from its weary search within it
self, lull of doubt and contradiction;
it presents an object, implicit, abso

knowoth all things." It provides for
ever aflliclion, every want and aspira

Does A Child Remember?
Wo saw recently an amusing evi
dence of the application. The little
urchin, barely six years of age, had
been-, .eating raw turnips, lor which he
?ccfneil to have a passion. He was for
bidden eating any more. Stepping
into guio kitchen, he saw sonic cleanly
washed turnips on the table, and ask
ed for one. The cook denied him, and
told mfiinij "Mother says you must, not
cat any more turnips raw." He in
sisted on having one, but the cook as
persitently refused him. Assuming
the altitude of a lecturer, and point
ing hi} finger at the cook, he said :
"12l)cn, you arc just like that iiian
Dives. I heard mother read about in
the Bible; and I am like tho beggar
Lazarus. I want it and can't get it;
you have it and won't give it to inc.
Never, mind, you know where Dives
went, and where Lazarus wont. Sonic
of these times you'll be calling on mo
for Hjwi>,M und out.ho stepped, (juite
iiidigua?t that ho couldn't get his
turnip.' . .
Now, if a child at six can acquire
and apply such n complication ol
ideas, at what ago do they begin to
learn Co imitate cither by word or
deed?.* Little do parents dream how
muchi of their conversation is absorbed
by the little, prattlers around them,
und liow many of their acls arc imi
tated because lather or mother did it.

The fanner who stints his fields, is as
unwise and improvident as lie who
starves his working cattle?in both
cases he is diminishing ihc ability of
a faithful servant to be useful to him.
The farmer who obtains from a field
not properly fertilized ten bushels of

have obtained twenty, is selling his
labor at half its value.

The farmer who will keep these
