Only a baby's tiny crib,
In a darkened, lonely room,
Only the sound of a mother' moan,
Heard in the deepening gloom.
A bahj's footsteps forever still,
The blue eyes closed in sleep
The mother's heart o'ertlows with tears,
As she kneels by the crib to weep.
How the little arms had clasped her,
. In the happy days gone by,
And the little voice had held her
With a baby's cuniupcry;
Now the tiny form is laid at rest,
And the crib is put away,
The mother cannot tienr to look
Where once her darling lay.
"He giveth His beloved sleep,"
She fays to her lonely heart,
And, though she feels that the Lord knows
Tears to her eyelids start;
And she bows her head upon the crib
Her lips form a silent prayer,
Darkness spreads the shadows fall,
Not alone for God is there.
Religion that a Parrot Could
A good story is told of u parrot
who had always lived on hoard of a
ship, hut who escaped nt one of the
Southern ports ami took refuse in a
church. Soon after, when the con
gregation asseniebled and the preach
er began preaching to them in his
earnest fashion, saying that there
was no virtue in them that every
one of them would go to endless per
dition unless they speedily repented.
Just ns he spoke the sentence up
spoke the pirrot from his hiding'
place: "All hands below!" To say
that "all hands" were startled would
ho a mild way of putting it. The pe
culiar voice and the unknown source
had much more effect on them than
the parson's voice ever had. 'He
waited u moment, and then, a shade
or two paler, he repeated the warn
ing. "All hands below" again rang
out from somwhere. The preacher
started from hia pulpit, and looked
anxiously around inquiring if., any-
body had spoken. "All hands be-
lw!" was the only reply, at which
the entire panic-stricken congrega
tion got up, and a moment afterward
they all bolted for the doors, the
preacher trying his best to be first,and
during the time the mischievous
bird kept up yelling; "All hands be
low!" There. was one old woman
present who was lame, and could not
get out as fast ns the rest, and in a
short time was left .entirely alone.
Just as she was about to hobble out
the parrot flew down, and, alighting
on her shoulder, yelled in her ear:
"All hands below!" "No, no, Mis
ter Devil!" shrieked the old woman,
"you can't mean me I go to the
other church across the way."

The Specie-Boom on Shipboard.
November Scribner. .
In these days of heavy gold ship
ments the specie-room on the steam
ship is a very important institution.
It is located in an out-of-the-way
place amidships, under the saloon.
Few of the passengers know of its
existence, or of the valuable treasure
that is carried across the ocan with
them. The room varies slightly on
different ships, but is usually about
19 feet long, by 10 feet wide, and
feet high. It is constructed of steel
plates one-quarter of an inch thick,
and strongly riveted together. The
floor, the veiling, and the walls are
all of steel plates. There is n heavy
door also made of stel. It is provid
ed with two English "Chub" locks,
a variety of combination lock that is
said to be burglar-proof. The gold
and silver is usually in bars, but oc
casionally a quantity of coin in bags
is shipped. This was the case when
the heavy snipments or gold were
made last spring. Tho Majestic is
credited with carrying the largest
quantity, her strong box having

Dogs Help Each Other to a Drink.
The fountain on the Clark Street
side of the county building was the
scene of a very funny incident the
other afternoon. Two dogs, water
spaniels, were trotting north when
they came to this place and stopped
for a drink. They were both thirsty,
but neither was tall enough to reach
the trough, and they talked the mat
ter over as dogs will, and wondered
why they had not been treated with
as much consideration as naa ine
horses. Presently they solved the
problem. One of them ranged him
Belf under the edge of the trough, and
the other, resting his forefeet upon
his companion's back, was able to
reach into the pool and slake - his
thirst. When he had finished he
hopped down, seemed to say the wa'
ter was good, and then in turn rang'
ed himself under the edge of the
fountain, and the other reached" up
for the drink he had earned. When
he was satisfied they trotted away to
gether, as well contented as any man
could be who had met a problem
and vanquished it.

How many continue to suffer from year
to year from the effects of blood poison!
Some seem to get possessed of the insane
idea that there is no cure. Yet nature has
provided a cure for every ailment. There
are herbs of such sure healing virtue that,
rightly used, they will eradicate every
trace of blood poison from the aystem.
These herbs are blended in the composi
tion or ui. jonn Hull s tiarsapanlla, a
remedy that has restored to health more
victims of inherited and contagious blood
disease tlian all other medicines put to

remedy a trial. If it did not excel in
curative virtue the many so-called blood
medicines that are commonly found in
drug stores, we would never spend one
cent to advertise it. Our object is to re

sold proves this to be a fact. Mrs. Robert
