after a right model, who is humble

the passions, appetites and desires to
the control and guidance of reason.
The first are the gales to Impel us In

they commit fearful ravages on the
character which they were fitted to
adorn and exalt.
We must watch over the first
movements of the heart, and not in-
dulge, with secret complacency, in
imagination which we would be
ashamed to avow. If we wish the
stream of life to be pure, it ought to a
be our aim to preserve the fountain
whence it flows unpolluted. "Keep cards will almost equal penny post

A False and Stupid Proverb.
N'ew York Ledger.
There is a bit of proverbial phiios
ophy alloat to the enect that "a
watched kettle never boils." False
philosophy this, whether taken liter
ally or figuratively. In the one case,
it is an idiotic supersition; in the
other, a stupid mistake; in either, a
humbug and a cheat.
Cease to watch your business ket
tie, and what comes of leaving it to
take care of itself? It either becomes
stone cold or blows up. You don't
want your enterprise over-done, and
vou don't want it underdone. Your
object is to strike the golden mean be
tween lukewarmness and the explos
ive point, represented, we will say
212 of Fahrenheit. How are you to
stimulate the contents of your kettle
up to the right mark to make them
ebullient without turning them into
a dangerous element unless you reg
ulate the upward tendency judicious
ly? It is only the neglected business
kettle that never boils to a good pur
Suppose Lord Worcester, Marquis
of Somerset, had not watched his ket
tie, and so had not observed the
phenomenon of the flapping lid,
forced into motion by the pres
sure of the escaping steam? If the
marquis had not received that hint
from his watched kettle as to the lat
ent force of steam, who can tell what
deprivation of motive power man
kind would have undergone ?
Your moral kettle must be looked
after, too, or it is more likely to
freeze than boil. Morality, without
the warmth of feeling necessary to
make it active, is not of much use.
In fact, all the figurative kettles,
individual and social, included with-
in the range of human hopes and du-
ties, require to be closely watched.
The world is paved, as one may
say, with the wrecks of kettles which
would have been of incalculable util-
ity if they had been properly raanag-
f a it
t!(i rerormatory Kettles, ior example,
which only.requiied the fire of zeal
to keep them going, and the guar-

regulate them, to become vaiuaDie

A young man who is trying to run
a farm m the same way that his
father and grandfather and great
grandfathers did had better sell out or
try some new methods, unless he
wants to make a failure out of it. The
old-time methods are past and cannot
be made successful at the present day.
Men in all professions and branches
of industry are tending toward
specialties ; if farmers want to keep
up they must do the same. Some
farms are adapted to stock raising,
grain, and still others to fruit. Let
every one pick out that branch which
he likes best and to which his farm is
adapted and then concentrate his
thoughts and energies on that ant

a peculiar feature in a church in

white dove perched on the organ and

that the dove had been a regular at-

years, being attracted by the music
of which it was very fond. It was

CRAWFORD'S BIQ SCOOP.
The roet-Soout'a Clever Diplomacy Alter
the Cutter Maaaacre.
Captain Jack Crawford, the poet-scout,
Is a noticeable figure in the kaleido
scopic lite of the capital this spring. It
is difficult to realize that this handsome,
brown-haired, gentle-mannered young
roan has facod death in every form for
twenty-flvo years; that those mild blue
yes have not seldom looked calmly
into the muzzle of loaded "guns" In the
hands of furious enemios, white and In
dian, and that blizzards and short ra
tions have been familiar companions
Jack s special hobby is, strange to say
of a frontiersman, temperance. lie
never in his life tasted a drop ot liquor,
and, as he is a ready and eloquent speak
er, he is naturally In great demand at
the meetings around town.
It requires some diplomacy to get
Captain Jack to talk of the exciting
events in which ho has figured, but
when he does his vivid and picturesque
narrative is a treat.
When Crook's expedition was march
ing to Custer's relief lnl8S7, there were
a number ot correspondents of E as torn
journals with the column. One night
when encamped near Doadwood, the
news of the massacred reached thorn.
Of course the first thought of each was
to get his dispatches in ahead of his
brethron. The nearest telegraphio
station of which they knew was at Fort
j-iaramii-, some iour uunuroa nines
away, throuirh a wild country swarminir

Tho New York Herald reprcsontativo
sought out Captain Crawford, then chief
of scouts for Crook, and offerod him $500
if ho would land his matter in New
York ahead of his rivals. Jack took
his packago, and at midnight started on
a fiery little broncho alone. Ho reachod
Custer, eighty miles away, the noxt
evening, and led his worn-out horso into
tho hotel stable, where it incontinently
lay down and died. This was a pretty
serious matter, but his own wants had
to bo attended to, and so he entored the
dining-room of the log hotel and order
ed his supper. While eating ho was
rather disagreeably surprised by the en-
t.rftnnfl nf hia frinnd "Antolnnn TiVanV "
another noted scout, who was on a simi
lar errand to his own for another papet.
i' ranK," saiu Jacir. abruptly, "we are
both dead tired, so lot us agree to stay
hero over niirht and make a fair start
together in tho morning."
"I'll go you," said Frank.
And so they retired to a room togeth
er. About midnight Jack awoko and
instantly looked for Frank. He found
him quietly sleeping. Still disturbed
and anxious, ho went down to the bar
room, and by a few leading questions to
tho functionary in attendance ho found
that "Antelopo Frank," whilo keeping
to tho word of his agreement, had Rent
off a messenger hours before with a
package for Laramie. Jack instantly
rushed to tho stable, found there a fam
ous racing niaro belonging to his friend
Davis, who kept tho hotel, and in two
minutes was out on tho Laramie trail
and away. But a stern chase is a long
chase, and ho never headed Frank's
Riding through tho Red Canyon the
next day he discovered a little ahead of
him a small band of Indians. He had
scant time for ceremony, so, with a wild
yell, ho rodo straight at them, firing
both revolvers at tho same time. The
astonished redskins took to tho hills
and ho rodo on, reaching Rawhido that
evening. Here he found tho terminus
of tho Government field telegraph lino,
and in chargo of somo of his friends.
This was enough for Jack, and, taking
tho boys to tho sutler s ranch, he in-
lormea tiiom tnat tney owned every
thing in it he would pay all bills. Ho
then handed them tho dispatches. They
fixed it with tho Laramie operator, and
in a fotv minutes tho first news of tho
Custer massacro was being clicked off to
tho New York Herald.
rann s messenger, meanwhllo, was
plodding along faithfully to Laramie, as
ho had been instructed. When ho ar
rived thero ho found tho wire occupied,
and tho matter he had carried had
to wait until the Herald's spec
ial and a long string of inconse
quential stuff, improvised by Jack to
hold tho wiro, had been sent. Tho
"scoop" was complete, and Bennett sent
him not only the $500 promised, but

Thousands of dollars worth of
chickens are destroyed by Cholera
every year. It is more fatal to them
than all other diseases combined.
But the discovery of a liquid remedy
that positively destroys the Microbes
has been made. Half of the young
chickens are killed by Microbes
before they are fryers. A jo:cent
bottle is enough for ioo chickens.
It is guaranteed. If, after using
two-thirds of a bottle you are not
satisfied, with it as a cure for Chol
era, return it to the druggist from
whom you purchased it, and he will
refund your money.
