TO HER IN THE COUNTRY.
Bound me the ramble and the thund'rous
Of all a city s walls and dies;
Round thee the holy, silent incense sweet
Of perfect flowers and perfect skies.
Round me the agony of dally strife
Is waged for honor, fame, and gold;
Bound thee the halo oi a country life,
That tits thee like a crown, Is rolled.
Axe we apart? Nay, love, I think not so;
Onr hearts beat strong across the space,
No lands divide us long, my love, I know;
My soul will find Its resting place.
And yet the city's thund'rous, throbbing
And all the cou ltry's perfect skies
Were one to me: could 1 a moment gaze
Into the summer of thy eyes.

The Rulo or Railroad Promotion.
I got ray information from a young man
who has been for some time a brakeman
on a suburban passenger train of the
Northwestern railway. He is a very ef
ficient and popular man, and when he told
me he meant to resign I asked him what the
reason could be. "Welll," he said, -'I have
been told by the superintendent that I
stand no chanco of promotion, as I didn't
begin right. I was fool enough to think
that if I took this place and behaved my
self I would one day be the conductor of
"But I Had that Ih avc- been euchred by a
sort of civil service rule that is en
forced in all the companies. This rule
Is that in order to become a conductor
of a passenger train a fellow must begin
as a brakeman ou a freight train, then he
must be a brakeman on a passenger train,
as I am now; then a conductor on a
freight; train, and Chen a conductor on a
passenger train. If a fellow begins as a
brakeman on a passeuger train, the way I
did, he w?l not be promoted in a century.
I never knew it until the other day, but I
am told that this rule is so well estab
lished that the company do not dare to
violate It, except in wise of obvious neces
sity. So 1 guess I will go."?Chicago
SXoderu Iicuu rSrumuiuU's Outfit.
Waitj vests we very much the fashion
just now, and a collar turned sharply
down in front. Patent leather shoes,
trousers*twenty-two inches round the bot
tom, a four button cutaway coat of diag
onal cloth, and a silk hat with ahAlf
weed, arc included in tho outfit of the
modern Brummell, not to mention a bam
boo stick with a buckhoru head, aud a
pair of tan-colored gloves broadly stitched
on the basis with black. He wears a wide
black siik ribbon with a gold buckle
hanging from hid fob pocket, hab! a dozen
rings upon Ids fingers, a soarf pin worth
a small fortune, and carries a single eye
glass, which ho seldom look* through,
and sees nothing when he does. Such Is
the exquisite youth, who has nothing in
the world to do but help to spend his fath
ers millions, and marry a girl with as
many more. He is ever present at the
casino, on the beach, in his tandem dog
cart on the avenue, at dinners, receptions
and balls, and nobody denies that he Is at
once tho choicest and most remarkable
production of advanced civilization.?New

Nothing Can lie More Foolish.
- Every now and then vre hear of a busi
ness man beginning the labor of the day
at "o'clock In the morning and expecting
his clerks and employes also to rise with
the lark, no matter if they have gone to
bed with that gay bird but a few hours
previously. It is considered an energetic,
? glorious, a praiseworthy proceeding to
t?ck on to the first of the day, what, by
rvery law of hygiene, should bo condensed
in the latter portion of our working hours.

AGONY OF BEING SCALPED.
Bov It Feels to Have the Skin Torn from
the Skull?Terrible Torture.
A sick and sorry looking specimen of
humanity stepped from the passenger
train last night and climbed into a wait
ing wagon and was driven to the country.
His name was Samuel NefL He is a man
about 30 years of age, and his parents
reside in Pine Creek. Young Neft is just
aome from Arizona, where he has been
prospecting in the mines and acting as a
scout on the hunt for Indians. Unfort
unately for him, he found the murderouB
red devils, and they almost made mince
meat of him. One day while riding
through a canon ho was shot through the
shoulder and fell from his horse. His as
sailants, finding that he was not dead,
tortured him outrageously. They cut
5ashes.in his face and all over his body,
applied fire to his feet and hands, and
ended their brutality by scalping him. He
suffered untold agonies, and prayed that
death might relieve him. Finally he fell
into a faint, and upon awakening he
found himself being kindly cared for in a
miner's cabin. The miner had picked
him up and carried him a long distance on
horseback. Neff suffered weeks of excru
ciating pain and raved with a fever, and
as soon as he was able to travel he took
the road for home.
A reporter asked Neff how it felt to have
his hair lifted.
"It is a dreadful sensation," he said.
:'One thinks, as the skin is being torn
Crom the skull, that his feet are coming
right up through his body to the top of
bis head. Oh, it is terrible. It is so pain
ful that you can not utter a cry; thousands
of stars dance before your eyes. You
imagine red-hot needles are darting in and
out of your flesh, and you clasp your
hands so closely that the finger nails cut
into the flesh. I would rather be run
through a thrashing machine, ground up
in a sausage mill or thrown under a
locomotive than to ever undergo such an
other ordeal. It makes me shudder to
think of the tortures I have gone through
with, and I never want to look upon the
face of another Indian."
"Do many persons survive the opera
tion?" interrupted the reporter.
"No; I have only heard of two or three
tr.en besides myself who have lost their
hair by the scalping-knife and then live to
tell of it."
"Do you thiuk the hair will ever grow
' "Oh, no; I shall always have a bald spot
up there. Tho skin was torn off for a
space of four inches square, and I'm afraid
it will never heal entirely. Even if it does
heal over the bare place will always be so
painful that I can not touch it. I keep
my head tied up in cotton and sweet oil.
You can see my beauty has been entirely
marred. These frightful gashes across
my faco will go with me to the grave."?

Salting of the Fainons Chrysolite.
I have seen mines salted when the best
of them were fooled. A man they call
uChicken Bill" salted the famous Chryso
lite, in Leadville, and sold it to Tabor for,
I think, $10,000. He worked days and
weeks on it, and finally had it fixed to his
satisfaction. Then Tabor was approached,
md, not trusting any one else, went down
into the shaft himself. He had been in
mines twenty years, and was well quali
fied to act as his own export. He was im
pressed with tho property and bought it,
but the veiu was small and he concluded
to go lower. Hu had only sunk ton feet
further when he struck the bonanza, aid
the property was immediately recognized
as being worth millions.
The salting was not noticed until later,
nnd Tabor was so impressed "with it that
instead of having the man arrested and
sentenced to the penitentiary, he began to
: take him, and has him in his employ to
lay. While prospecting for Tabor he dis
jovered the Tarn O'Shanter, another rich
strike. But while there is salting, there
? not as much of it as formerly. There
lave been numerous instances whero it
aas not been profitable. For instance, if
'Chicken Bill" had used less ingenuity
and less time, and sunk his shaft ten feet
"urthcr, he instead of Tabor would have
struck the bonanza, and have had amillon
instead of $10,000.? W. H. Wilson in Globe

Some years ago a well-kuuwn Presby
terian divine was spending his summer
vacation with his family in the Adiron
dacks. One Sunday he accepted an in
vitation to preach 'in one of the simple
meeting houses of that region. In tho
congregation was a man who apparently
was very deaf, for he came to the service
armed and equipped with an immense
brass ear-trumpet, and as soon as the ser
mon began went forward and took his
'. seat well up on the p"'plt stairs. The
: clergyman's little da' ,.iter was among
j the auditors; she had never seen an ear
! trumpet, and the spectacle of the form on
j the pulpit stairs steadily holding that in
strument to his head filled her with awe
