His face dropped bown
As droops a dying flower.
The emperor's eyes flashed wild.
Then sank again.
"What's this? You're wounded, child,
You faint with pain."
"Nar, aire," he smiling said,
"Not wounded, k lledl"
And white and chilled
The soldier-child fell dead.

Happy Orand mother.
C! rand ma Barton was one of the hap
piest women I ever knew. Although
Bhe lived eighty-seven years, and paw
many shadowy as well as sunshiny
days, her life was beautiful all through.
.She accepted the Borrows as well as the
joys, as sent by her best friend, and
tiu'sted Him in the ditrkness a9 well asin
tke light. But her greatest source of
earthly happiness was the fact that her
children and her grandchildren loved her
bo truly and so tenderly. he never felt,
as too many dear, blessed souls do, that
die was other than a constant joy and
comfort to them.
In many ways she was a great care and
burden. But they never allowed her to
feel it. It was beautiful to see them all
so loving in their attention to her. And
now that she has come into possession of
her " mansion in the skies," how pleacant
to the dear ones left will be the memo
ries of the happiness they gave her,
through many long years, and especially
the last few, when she appreciated them
Her husband was a prominent physi
cian in ne of our smaller cities, and
while he lived there were no two persons
in the whole country more loved or re
spected than the doctor and his kind,
sunny, hospitable wife. But twenty
years ago that good christian doctor, who
had cared for the souls as well as the
bodies of his patients, went to the " bet
ter land," and the home was broken up,
and the lovely, lonely mother went
away to live with a dear daughter,
whose husband,one of the best ministers,
preached in a town not far distant. .
And all these years the son and the
daughters,with their children,have striv
en in every way to make grandma happy
She was not always left at home when a
pleasant picnic, or a nice driva was pro
Hsed, as too many grandmas are; but
there was a place and a welcome seat for
her. Her room was the sunniest, her big
chair the easiest, her bed the softest of
any in the house. Bbe was a great
reader, a very interesting talker, and
from her long and varied experience
never lacked for listeners. The happiest
hour of the twenty-four for the children
was the one after prayers, and before bed
time, when they all sat around grandma's
kiiee and heard a sweet bible-story, or
some bit of her own history, related in
her quaint way.
But, a short time ago, she began sud
denly to fail, and ere many weeks had
passed dear grandma's chair was vacant,
and the children would whisper softly at
twilight, as they missed the pleasant
voice and the accustomed story, 'How
strange it seems without grandma !"
I want to tell you of her last birthday,
which began so sweetly on earth, and
whose close found her in heaven. Her
daughter a few days previous to this
sickness had just returned with her
children from the centennial, and one
morning she said to her mother :
" How glad I am that we came home
before the severe sickness! Did you
think when you were taken sick that
rerharw vou micht die when l was
" Yc," she replied, "I did."
"How would you have felt if you
bad?" asked the daughter.
Her reply was: " Mary, I did think I
would like to spare you the trial of see
ing me die."
What a lovely, unselfish mother!
The day before her death, the daughter
and two of her children slipped of! for
awhile (leaving her husband to sit by
her) to purchase some birthday presents
for grandma. They bought her a pretty
new cap, a necktie, a handsome new
counterpane for the bed, and ordered the
most tempting things for her dinner they
could find in the market. Her birthday
morning found her very comfortable,
and, after breakfast, the new ruches were
placed in her second best black silk, and
her daughter dressed her to setup for
awhile. Then she kised her by twen
ties to the eighty-seventh time, recalling
at every twenty the place where grand
ma was, and the chcurnstance which at
that time surrounded her, which she
seemed to enjoy vey much.
Afterward tl children and their
father brought in the present, he.
wrapping the new spread about him,
putting on the cap, necktie, etc., to
show them ofT and all making merry
over them. But as grandma did not
seem to enter into the merriment very
heartily, her daughter quietly asked
" Would you rather wear the ' white
robe' above?" and with a sweet, beam
ing smile on her face, she said:
"Yes, 1 would!"
And that evening, after a pleasant,
comfortable day, talking much with her
loved ones of the joys before her, of her
peace, and trust and happiness, the sum
mons came, and, without a struggle or a
moan, she passed from earth to Heaven,
and put on the " white robe" washed in
the blood of the Lamb. What a beauti

A. O. Boone, of Denver, Colorado, who
is now in Washington, writes to the
Graphic as follows, under date of Janu
ary 8 : Having just returned with the
commission to negotiate with the Sioux,
of which I was a member, I was informed
that in a late issue of your paper you pub
lished a sketch of General B. L. E. Bon
neville, in which some errors hare crept
which I would like to correct without
detracting from the well established
fame of the general. The public seem
to think that Bonneville and Fremont
and Marcey were the first explorers of
the sections of which they give such
graphic descriptions, but in this they are
in error, as most of the country was
hunted, trapped and prospected years
before they Set about their scientific ex
ploration. Captain Bonneville received
a furlough in 1832 and explored the west
for four years.
In 1825 I accompanied General W. H.
A ah ley, of St. Louis, with a party of one
hundred trappers, to the Rocky moun
tains. Ashley took out a party of men
in 1823, at which time I was among the
Osages in charge of the trading outfit of
Messrs. Paul Bayliss & Co., of St. Louis.
He left his party near the great Salt
Lake, under Jackson and Sublett, and
took out our party to reinforce them.
We found on Bear river that the Indians
had attacked and dispersed the first
party, and the survivors were scattered
through the mountains. The trappers of
our party, and others who were in the
country, trapped all along the moun
tains from the British possession into
Mexico. Our principal competitors in
those days were the free trappers of the
British northwestern fur company, who
ranged all over west of the mountains,
and had taken out 3,000,000 beavers be
fore Ashley's first party went to work.
When Ashley returned t St. Louis in
1825 he left the party of about ninety
five men camped on Bear river (now in
Utah), in charge of Colonel Kobert Camp
bell, now one of the wealthiest men of
In 1825 the most western military post
was Fort Osage, in Jackson county, Mo.,
and the wilderness stretched from there
westward. The Indians in those days
were armed with stone hatchets and
lances, and their arrows flint-tipped. It
was only amasement to fight them, and a
few trappers went fearlessly anywhere.
well remember one incident ef that my
first trip. As we were traveling along the
Platte river uplands one day We discov
ered in the distance a large afurrjber of
Indians, and those of us whqjpadnot made
the trip to the mountairisbefore were ex
cited in anticipation of a brush, when the
Indians suddenly disappeard. The plain
stretched in full view before us, and we
could have seen them go off in any direc
tion. You can imagine our wonder, und
the jokes put at us by the older trappers,
who tried to make us believe we had seen
a mirage, common on those plains. But
a short time brought us to the under
ground village of tho Pawnees, where
they lived in subterranean rooms, like
the prairie dogs. These rooms were
about eight feet in diameter, and lined
with grass and buffalo hides, each being
the abode of a family. We had no
especial incidents beyond those of hunt
ing and trapping on the expedition. We
ran into a party of Kickarees who were
going to fight the Pawnees, and a few of
our fellows put the party to flight.
Along the mountains ten or twenty In
dians would occasionally pitch at one of
our men when they got him in a close
place, but if he could get a fair show he
could keep them off until assistance
reached him. They prefeared fighting
their Indian enemies to bothering us.
In 1825 we traveled 1,200 miles, to our
beaver grounds, and our cartswere taken
through the South Pass nine years be
fore Bonneville is said to have taken the
first wagon train through there. None
of the regular trapping outfits had
wagons in those days, but a light cart
called a charatte was used by the voy
agers. The Santa Fe traders who went after
silver took a routeof 1,100 miles through
the wilderness ten years before JIarcy
graduated from West Point, in 1832.
Along between 1825 and 1835 the fur
trade fever was at its height. The Amer
ican fur company of St. Louis and the
other companies had over 1,000 men in
their employ. They built forts at the
mouth of the Yellowstone, at the Man
dan Village (above the present site of
Bismarck, D. T.), and at the mouth of
Teton, since called Bad river. Fort
Leavenwortb was also built by the
United States. The British company
had fully a thousand men trapping and
trading west of the mountains, and the
Mexicans had quite as many trappers
from the mountains to the Pacific, and
traders and trappers scattered all over
the west and northwest. Many of these
men found gold in the Black Hi'ls and
other places, but the trapping and trad
ing paid far better than gold hunting,
and was more certain, and when the rush
was mado for California all the old trap
pers pointed to the Black Hills as a fine
field for mining enterprise. These trap-
peis rarely ever became miners; they
preferred their solitary rambles to the
bustle of a mining camp ; but they pene
trated everywhere and guided the ex
plorers to the wonderful scenes in whose
description they have gained such fame.
In conclusion I will say that Kit Car
son was a relative of mine, though
much younger, his mother being a
Boone. One day meeting Freemont in
the capitol and speaking of Carson and
other things he paid: " Boone, I thought
I was the first whits man at Indepeud'
ence rock, but I found your name there."
I then told him that it was the trap
tiers' milt-post on the Sweetwater for
I years before I saw it.
EAT MORE AX It VRIXK LESS.
If you would keep from drinking so
great a quantity of ardent spirits, eat, cat
more. Eat nutritious food. Eat some
thing whenever you take a drink. The
drunk, in all cases, comes from the stom
ach full of whiskey and no food. There
is a simple lesson yet te be learned by
many and that is, they do not eat enough
of real blood, bone, nerve, and tissue
making food. You may half starve te
death on salt fish, potatoes, cabbage,
turnips, fried liver, stewed kidney, and
a score of other dishes which please the
taste but add little or nothing to the
body force. Efg9, the best of steak
mutton, and bread are what one requires,
for strength. It is this unconscious,
half-starved condition which causes so
much of the craving for a temporary in
crease of strength, and that is quickest
gained through a glass of whiskey. That
gives for a few moments a spasmodic im
pulse to the wheIs of life, sending them
whizzing and spinning around for a few
moments. Then comes reaction, and
they turn more sluggUhly thau ever.
The best spirits in the world -reside in
good blood ; the worst in bad. It is that
which sends false imaginings, suspicions
and despondencies to the btain. Spring
The slate business of the Lehigh valley
is better now than ever before, the ex
port to foreign countries being largely
on the increase, 44,717 cases of school
slates and 10,746 tons of roofing slate
having been shipped to Great Britain
during the year.
In respect to its actual illuminating
power, the coal gas of the city of Lon
don to-day is but little, if any, better j
than it was a quarter of a century since.
Mr. T. S. D. Humpidge, on English
analyst, thinks that the advance made
during that period relates to the improve
ment of burners than to the improve
ment of the gas itself.
The Canadian minister of agriculture
asserts that Paris green is the only sub
stance yet discovered to be effectual on a
large scale for the destruction of the Colo
rado potato beetle before in the larva Btate.
It has been pointed out that there might
be some danger of poisoning persons if it
were indiscriminately applied to the leaves
of plants for this purpose, but it appears
to have been extensively used in many
of the states.
The so-called JMexican onyx, which
was bo greatly admired at the centennial
exhibition, occurs most abundantly in
the Mexican state of Piiebla, near the to wn
of Tecalli, and is chiefly a carbonate of
calcium. According to Prof. Bacena,
one of the commissioners from Mexico,
the variegated green and reddish hues of
the beautiful rock are attributable to the
presence of the oxides of manganese and
of iron in small quantities.
The memoirs of the geological survey
of India are now in course of publica
tion by the government. A recent
volume contains a description of the
Punjaub, west of the Indus river. The
salt is generally pure, and not less than
2,230 feet in maximum thickness, but
its precise geological age is doubtful, as
it contains no fossils. Hills and cliffs of
salt are numerous, and the mineral crops
out in various other paits of the district.
An effort to determine how much the
earth's temperature is affected by the
presence of spots on the sun has been
made by Prof. Langley, of the Alleghany
astronomical observatory, at Pittsburg.
His calculations indicate that when the
sun-spots are fewest the meyi tempera
ture of the earth due tf-solar radiation
. is from thresf tenths to one-twentieth of
a degree greater than when the sun-spots
are most numerous. The degree on which
the measurements are basei is that of
the centrigrade thermometer. ,
Among the latest papets of Prof. O,
C. Marsh in regard to the fossils in the
Yale college museum is a brief account
of the American pterodactyls or gigantic
flying lizards, whose remains have been
found in the cretaceous deposits of Kan
sas. Some of them, he says, have t
spread of wings not less than twenty-five
feet, and they differ from similar crea
tures of the Old World, especially in the
absence of teeth. He has classified them
into two genera: Pteraitodon, which
comprises the largest lizards already
mentioned, and Nyeiosaurtit, a new genus.
of which the type was a pterodactyl of
smaller size, having a space of eight or
ten feet between the expanded wing tips
Arithmetic does Dot keep pace with
the other mathematical sciences. An
address on the present state of mathe
matical science was lately delivered be
fore the mathematical society in London
by "Prof. II. S. Smith, who said that
while some of the greatest conceptions
of modern algebra had their rigin in
connection with arithmetic, "the pro
gress of modern algebra and geometry
had far outstripped tho progress oi arith
metic, and one great problem which
arithmeticians have now is to endeavor
to turn to account for their own science
the great results which have been at
tained in the sister sciences." He ao
knowledged, however, that this would be
a difficult task.
No wolves are now found in New Eng.
land south of northern Maine and the
White mountains, but as late as the be
ginning of the present century wolves
were met with in New Hampshire and
the southern parts of Maine and Ver
mont. Mr. J. A. Allen, who gives the
facts in the Naturalist, rejects the theory
that our common red fox ia descended
from English foxes brought to America
and turned loose by the early colonists.
He thinks, however, that the red fox has
spread southward' along the Atlantic
coast during tne last two centuries, and
that the gray fox has retreated corres
pondingly in the same direction. The
otter and raccoon are almost extinct in
New England, and the number o! black
bears are fast diminishing. It does not
appear that the polar bear ever came so
far south, but it visits the coast of Labra
dor, and has been seen there within the
last twelve years.

THE MAJOR AXD BIS I)OOS.
The first case is one which occurred at
a fashionable watering-place on the east
coast of Ireland, some twenty years ago,
and exhibits the remarkable f ajacity dis
played by a dog in cai rying out the dic
tates of the animal passion for revenge.
The jetty which stretched along the
small harbor was at that time used as a
promenade by the elite among the so
journers on the coast, where, after the
heat of the long summer days, they re
galed themselves with the fresh evening
breezes wafted in from the sea. Among
the frequenters of this fashionable resort
was a gentleman of some position, who
was the owner of a fine Newfoundland
dog, which inherited the time-honored
possessions of that noble breed very
great power and facility in swimming
and, at the period of the evening when
the jetty was most crowded with prom
enaders, his master delighted to put this
animal through a series of aquatic per
formances for the entertainment of the
assembled spectators. Amusement be
ing at a premium on the coast, these
nightly performances grew into some
thing like an "institution," and the brave
Captain" for such was his name
speedily became a universal favorite on
the jetty. It happened, however, that
among the new asrivais on the coast
there came a ceptaia major in her majes
ty's army, accompanied by two bull-dogs
of unusual size and strength, and of I
great value ; buj, value in a bull-dog be-
in ginversely proportionate to its beauty,
the- appearance "or1 the major and his
dogs excited no very enthusiastic pleasure
among the sethetic strollers on the jetty.
On tfio first igiM0tn which the major
presented himself, nothing unusual oc
curred ; and Captain dived and swam as
before. But on the second evening the
brave old favorite was walking quietly
behind his master down the jetty, when,
as they were pasting by the major and
his dogs, one of these ugly brutes flew at
Captain,-and caught him by the neck in
such a way as to render his great size
utterly useless for his defense. A vio
lent struggle ensued, but the bull-dog
came off the victor, for be stuck to his
foe like a leech, and could only be forced
to release his hold by the insertion of a
bar of iron between his teeth. The in
dignation of the by-standers against the
major was, of course, veiy great ; and its
fervor was not a little increased when
they saw the poor Captain wending his
way homeward, bleeding, and bearing all
the marks of defeat. Some two or three
evenings after this occurrence, when
Captain again ma le his appearance on
the jetty, he looked quite crestfallen,
bore his tail between his legs, and stuck
closely to the heels of his master. That
evening passed away qu;etly, and the
next, and the next, and so on for about
a week Captain still bearing the aspect
of mourning. But one evening about
eight or ten days after the above en
counter, as the major was marching in
his usual pompous manner along the
jetty, accompanied by his dog,something
attracted his attention in the water.and,
walking to the very edge of the jetty, he
stood for a moment looking down into
the sea. Scarcely had the two bull-dogs
taken up their stand beside their master
when Captain, siezing the opportunity
for which he had so long looked, rushed
at his former conqueror, and, catching
him by the back of the neck, jumped off
the jetty, with his foe " in his
mouth, clown some twenty feet
or more into the sea. Once in
the water, the power of his enemy was
crippled, 'while Captain was altogether in
his own element; and, easily overcoming
all efforts at resistance, he succeeded in
resolutely keeping the bull-dog's head
under water. The excitement on the
shore was, of ceurse, intense. ' The major
shouted, and called out: "My dog! my
beautiful dog! Will no one save him?"
But no one seemed at all inclined to in
terfere, or to risk his life for the ugly
dog. At length the major called out:
"I'll give fifty pounds to any one who
will save my dog;" and soon afterward a
boat which lay a some little distance
pulled up to the rescue. Even then,
however, it was only by striking Captain
on the head with the oars that he could
be forced to release his victim, which was
taken into the boat quite senseless from
exhaustion and suffocation, and was with
difficulty brought to itself agaiu. Cap
tain, on the other hand, swam in tri
umph to the shore, amid the plaudits of
the spectators, who shared, in sympathy
at leat, his well-earned honors of re
venge. Popular Science Monthly.

Harper's Magazine for February will
contain a number of letters from the late
Lord Macaulay to II. S. Handall, author
of the "life of Jefferson," that, although
written nearly twenty years ago, are
particularly timely at this moment.
Macaulay did not believe in Jefferson or
the Jefferfonian policy and he expressed
himself very freely to Mr. Randall. We
quote in advance of its publication a few
extracts from a letter dated May 23,
You are surprised to learn that I have
not a high opinion of Mr. JefFersen, and
I am surprised at your surprise. I am
certain that I never wrote a line, and
that I never, in parliament, in conversa
tion, or even on the hustings a place
where it is the fashion to court the
populace uttered a word indicating an
r r '
state ought lo be intrusted to the ma-
jority of citizens told by the head ; in
other words, to the poorest and most ig
norant part of society. I have long been
convinced that institutions purely dem
ocratic must, sooner or later, destroy
libertyorcivilization.'orboth. In Europe,
where th population is dense, the effect
of such institution would be almost
instantaneous. You may
think that your country enjoys an ex
emption from these evils. I will frankly
own to you that lam of a very different
opinion. Your fate I believe to be cer
tain, though it is deferred by a physical
cause. As long as you have a boundless
extent of fertile and unoccupied land
your laboring population will be far more
at ease than the laboring population of
the old world, and while that is the
case, the Jefferson politics may continue
to exist without causing any fatal
calamity. But the time will come when
New England will be as thickly peopled
as Old England. Wages will be as low,
and will fluctuate as much with you as
with us. You will have your Man
chester and Birmingham, and in those
Manchesters and Bbrminghams hundreds
of thousands of artisans will assuredly be
sometimes out of work. Then your in
structions will be fairly brought to the
test It is quite plain that
your government will never be able to
restrain a distressed and discontented
majority. For with you the majority is
the government, and has the rich, who
are always a minority, absolutely at its
mercy. The day will come when in the
state of New York a multitude of people,
none of whom has had more than half a
breakfast, or expects to have more than
half a dinner, will choose a legislature.
It is possible to doubt what sort of a
legislature will be chosen ? On one side
is a statesman preaching patience, re
spect for vested rights, strict observance
of public faith. On the other is a dema
gogue ranting about the tyranny of cap
italists and assurers, and asking why any
body should be permitted to drink cham
pagne and ridejin a carriage while thou
sands of honest folks are in want of neces
saries. Which of the two candidates is
likely to be pieferred by a workingman
whohears his children cry for more bread.
I seriously apprehend that you will, in
some such season of adversity as I have
described, do things which will prevent
prosperity from returning ; that you will
act like people who would in a vear of
scarcity devour all the seed corn, and
thus make the next a year not of scarcity,
but of absolute famine. There will be, I
fear, spoliation. The spoliation will
increase the distress. . The distress will
produce fresh spoliation. There is noth
ing to stop you. Your constitution is
all sail and no anchor. As I said before,
when a society has entered on this down
ward progress either civilization or liberty
must perish. Either some Csesar or
Napoleon will seize the reins of govern
ment with strong hand or your republic
will be as fearfully plundered and laid
waste by barbarians in the twentieth
century as the Boman empire was in the
fifth, with the difference, that the huns
and vandals who ravaged the Roman
empire came from without, and that
your huns and vandals will have been
engendered within your own country by
your own institutions.
Canada merchants have had a bad
time of it for several years back. The
annual circular of Dun, Wiman & Co. of
Montreal for 1876 shows that the two
years just past have been disastrous to
them, more so in fact than 1873, the year
of the panic, or the year after. In 1876,
one man in every thirty-two doing bus
iness in Canada failed, although in the
United States the ratio was only one
in every sixty-nine. I he cause or this
gloomy state of affairs is reported to be
that Canada has too many merchants.

dential uncertainty is over there will be
a genuine revival of business.
Inheritors of vast wealth are proverbially
spendthrift. The golden ore is dug from the
mine, refined, and coined, by the labor of
other hands and the sweat of other brows.
Like children playing with aa expensive toy,
they can form no just estimate of its value.
When the donor weighed it, he cast into the
balance so many days of unremitting and
fatiguing toil, so many anxioas and sleepless
nights, so much self-denial, and so much
care. Bat tbe inheritor into his balance
throws only pleasure. The one, values it
by what it cost him ; the other, for what it
will purchase. Like the prodigal in the
Scripture parable, he thoughtlessly expends
it to gratify the caprice and cravings of his
nature. Then comes the last rcene the mis
ery, the remorse, and the long and wearisome
journey back to the home of frugal industry.
Bat there are other prodigals. On her fav
orites our bounteous parent, Nature, has
lavished her richest treasure health. 15ut
the prodigal values it lightly, for it cost him
naught, and recklessly squanders it in riot
ous living. Present pleasure obscures future
want. Soon the curtain rises on the last
scene. We see him helpless, impoverished,
the rich treasures of body and mind all
lost, in misery and despair. Remorseful
conscience holds up to him the mirror of
memory. In his own reckless folly he per
ceives the cause of his present pain. He
resolves to return. The journey is long and
tedious, but if he perseveringly follows the
right road, he will at length eee the haven of
his hopes in the distance, and Nature, seeing
her invalid child afar oft, will come out to
meet him, and receive him hsck with love
and blessing. To find the right road home
ward, the suffering prodigal should read
"The People's Common Sense Medical Ad
viser." Therein it is completely mapped
out, its landmarks all indicated and its mile
stones all numbered. Read it. Price $1.56

It is now generally admitted by hon
est physicians, that when once the consump
tion is fairly fastened upon the lungs, no
human power can save the patient from
death. They also say that about fifty per
cent, of those who die from this disease can
trace the cause to a neglected cough or cold,
which mieht have been cured by a small bot-
j tie of Liquid Opodeldoc, or what is t
thing, Johnson's Anodyne Liniment.

oeonle in the civilized worm w-uv,
among those who are interested in music and
tt. fnrnin of musical expression, have not
heard of the Eatey Organ, and smaller still is
the number of those who do not, after practical
acquaintance, with the superior merits of that
noble instrument, choerf ally concede the proud
claim of its makers, that
THE ESTEY OHGAH LEADS THE WOBLD.
The foremost musicians of Europe and
America hasten to join their testimony to that
of professional and amateur organists and
instrumentalists, of all degrees of proficiency
and celebrity, and all with remaauie unani
mity affirm that no reed organs, of whatever
manufacture, native or foreign, can possibly
compare with those from the honse of Metisrg.
Estey & Co. in power, tone, workmanship and
style. Such a position and reputation can only
be gained legitimately. Mushroom manufac
turers that grow up in a night and flaunt then
wares in the face of the public, gaudy and
impudently, may seem to flourish for a time ;
but their prosperity is a he, as their pretensions
are a cheat. The sure success that crewr.s
honestv, industry, probity and thoroughness is
slow of growth ; but when it comes it is stesd
ft. and honorable to the end. The Estey
Organs have achieved this success gradually,
through vears of sturdy toil, paCent experi
ment, tireless watchfulness and unvarying
promptitude in additions and improvements.
Thirty years ago the primitive prototype of
the present magnificent instrument was made.
Tlace the two Bido by side and read tho lustory
of a generation of industry and invention.
Thirty years ago only the wealthy could afford
to possess musical instrument of any sort,
and thousands of churches were destitute of
the charm of instrumental music in their wor
ship. To-day the humblest homo, may have lU
fireside organ, to lend sweet attraction to the
home circle, and the feeblest church or Sabbath
school a beautif ill instrument, to give voice and
earnestness to its pious praise. This happy
change is due to the Estey Organ more than to
anv other one cause. The constant and nndevt
,.r it makers has been to produce a
lwrfect reed instrument that should be within
the reach of the popular purse in price. Every
mechanical appliance that human ingenuity
could devise and human patience perfect has
been brought to bear in.xm this end. Trust
worthy experience from all quarters has lavish
ed its ripest fruit unstintedly to promote this
object. The materials used have been rigidly
subjected to every possible test that could in
anv wav conduce to their adapt ability and dura
bilitv. " What is the result at the end of thirty
year.4? The lowest priced pipe organs that are
worth bnving cost $1,500. Slessrs. Estey & Jo.
furnish for from 2iK) to 30 a reed organ so
admirably balanced in tone and ixvvrer that two
thirds of "the congregation in an ordinary small
church would suppose it a piie organ if it was
concealed from view. A really good piano from
a reliable maker cannot 1 taught for less than
400 to 500. An Estey Organ, suited to the
eanacitv and requirements of any family, may
be purchased for 130 or 200, and a thoroughly
good one for 70. Tbi is practical ihiUnthro
pv of a qualitv as refreshing as it is rare. This
i.i something worth working and waiting f or ;
and it is jteculiarlv gratifying to know that all
concerned maker, seller, buyer and performer
reap an equitable share of the benefits of a
result so truly beneficent.
That which conserves the pnlhe welfare
nmtnnlra nrivate interest flood wine needs no
bush. Honesty pays best. Messrs. Estey &
Co. have proved the truth of these aphorisms,
and in an age of shams have demonstrated that
solid merit is tho true toucliBtwne of success.
Nino thousand organs were turned out there
last vear and sent to every quarter of the globe,
in more than ontM'itance supplanting entirelv

A FEW TESTIMONIALS.
Scientific men, inventors and manufacturers from all parts of the world have visited the
Estey establishment and unanimously pronounce it nnsnrpass.nl in perfection of detail and com
prehensive system. BecommendaUous, such as flood the country for every conceivable invention
of money making and money spending man, are cheap enough. Many that sound and read well
may be bought for a uoug. At tho present tune, therefore, it is in orde r to quote a few testimo
nials which the Estey Organs have called forth, that are a test of valuo and approval which
cannot be gainsaid the voice of the masters in music taaring witness to that fine truism, as old
as human endeavor and human fruition, that only true merit achieves true success :

his ln-in-law,' Levi K. Fuller. Mr. Estey,
senior, is tho veteran rn-d oran maker of
America, if not of the world. Ho begun tho
business iu BrattMsiro', thirty years ago, in a
single room, with six workmen, and has nmko
his wav constantly forward, in spite of more dis
asters 'and drawbacks than often nttesid such
enterprises. This fact H one to m nisu Him
self. He has made himself, through force of
ho.Hvty, energy, shrewdnrss and perseverance,
rioddii.g on aiid on, smiling at disasters by fire
and flood, planting his feet resolutely 'i. all
olmtacles. with indomitable faith in himself and
his work, he l.ns reached a very proud place
among his fellows, while still in the prune of a.
halo and vigorous .hsiiihwhi. jh .-A...........
ability is great. He knows every detail of tha
vast business mid watches its daily progress
with a marvelous approach to omnipresence.
But, however absorlM-d lie ninv oo ... hum uir.i
tion, he has never m glin ted his highest duties
and privileges as a citieu. Always foremost
in even-thing conducive to the public welfare,
active ly interested in affairs of church, Stato
and society, his influence has lecn wido and
good and the cordial ext. -cm ho has earned so
honornblv waits impatiently for a fitting opjsir-

The voimgcr memls rs of tho firm, who havo

of their senior for some timo previous, and tli
partnership onlv s rved to concentrate their
energies. Thev are young men of sterling
natural ability.' and seem toliave been particu
larly well fitted for the iM.sitions assigned them.'
Mr." Julius Estev is at the head of the counting
room and supervises the mathematical intrica
cies of the immense business with a clear-headed
faculty that might well le considered a
synonvm for uniform correctness. The counting-room
of a manufactory is where its heart

regular pulsation through all the veins and
arteries of workshop and storehouse. Mr. Fuller
is at tho head of the nieelianics of the concent.
His native talent, stimulated by a thorough
mechanical training, has been invaluable and in
