CHAPTER VII.
When we closed our hist
chapter, Mr. Lorenzo was about
to divulge his plans for the fu
lure of the boy, and now we
have them.
"It k my intention to keep
Willie to wait on me and my
lillle wife, and when he gets
old enough to marry lie can
many, but he must not marry
until I say so, or I will . drive
him off the next day; but. if he
slays at home and works as he
should on the farm and marries
to suit me, I will keep him
right here as long as tve live,
and when we die, I will give
him this house and lot and 20
acres of land, and the rest shall
go to my nephew John. There
is no use of talking about me
mining through with what I
have earned in a foolish way,
am able to take care of my
self, you see, and you, Mrs,
Lorenzo. It would be nrettv
work for me to send that boy
A t
off to school and pay his way
and have no one to wait on me
in my declining years. Don't
you see that my plan is the
best?"
"Not exactly," said the wife,
your plan would be pleasant
for s, but would be a great in
justice to the boy, and I fear an
insult to God."
"Ah 1 you always put a re
ligious phase on every thine.
but let mo tell you if wo don't
look after ourselves no one else
will."
"I think, husband, that the
best way to look after ourselves,
in looking after others less
fortunate than wo. We must
not bp selfish, nor do damage to
others, and perhaps to genera
tions yet unborn, by our course
conduct.
'
The conversation was broken
off by the appearance of a coup
le of neighbor women who call
ed at Mr. Lorenzo's to spend a
few hours visiting.
"Why, bless my soul and
body, if Mr. and Mrs. Lorenzo
ain't in the room here sparking
like two old lovers, and how-do-you-do?
I am so glad to
see you; we just 0, excuso
me! This is sister Smith, I al
most forgot to introduce you."
Thus broke in and out old
Mrs. OreybiH, the veritable gos
sip of the town.
Taking a seat and catching
her breath she began to ask
about everything in particular,
giving no one else hardly "a
chance to put a word in edgeways.
"Mrs. Lorenzo, you look so
well, you must be enjoying re.'
markably good health ; and Mr
Lorenzo finds time to set down
and have a social chat with his
wife ? How I wish Mr. Grey
mu would no tnat. lie never
has time to say a word hardly,
and 1 sometimes wish that if I
was a gal again, I'd never mar
ry ; but then he is a good pro
vider, and with the exception of
his crossness a very good man.
Where is your boy Willie; I
wish he were here to bring me
a drink of water, it is so handy
to have a waiter; we have a boy
at our house and I just, tell you
I get an abundance of work out
of him, but he is so sneaking
that I have to watch him to
keep him from stealing the su
gar and, preserves. I suppose
all servant boys are just alike,
but where did you get your boy?
Yes, yes, I will have a drink, if
you please, but I did not intend
for you to wait on me. Where
did you say you got your boy?'
"He is my sister's son," re
marked Mrs. Lorenzo.
"Ah, I believe that I heard
that before. He was not in
that fuss down town when those
boys were arrested, was he."
"O, no, Mrs. Greybill; Willie
is a good boy and never hangs
around town. He prefers to
stay at home and study."
fflT n 1
"ies, mese uoys are very
saintly when in our presence.
but just watch them when they
think you don't see them."
"Willie is just as true be-
ii urn our oacic as Deiore our
face," replied Mrs. Lorenzo.
This last remark was uttered
with a kind of tone Mrs. Grey-
bill understood to mean that re
flections cast upon Willio were
not acceptable, and so she turn
ed her attention towards Mrs
Smith, who up to this time had
not seen a place for "her say
to come in.
"Why, Mrs. Smith 1 Why
don t you say something; these
folks are real home-folks, and
you need not bo afraid to talk.
Please let me fix that ribbon
on your head, it is out of place.
Hasn't Mrs. Smith got a nice
head of hair, if she was a little
more particular about putting
it up fashionable. There now,
that's nice."
Mr. Lorenzo, at this moment,
asked to be excused, and went
out of the house to get a little
fresh air after such a gust of
female fussy eloquence.
Mrs. Smith was a rather mod
est little woman, and being a
stranger in the place, had gone
out for the first time with her
officious hear neighbor, Mrs.
Greybill. A momentary lull
had taken place by the depar
ture of Mr. Lorenzo, when
Mrs. Greybill took a fresh start.
"I suppose you heard about
the run-a-way of Sam. Jones
and Mary Vorhees, they were
pretty sharp about it; and Sallie
Herondon is about to get mar
ried to a fellow from York State;
she will drive her ducks to a
poor market, I guess. There's
a fuss up between Marigold and
his wife, and it is supposed
that he is in the habit of whip
ping her. The word is out that
Mr. Conrad, whoso wife and
girls put on so much style, is
about to break up. I never
lived in as moan a place for
tattling in all my life, you can
hear everything true and un
true." Thus Mrs. Greybill
went on until she left, just like
every other tattler.
"Wife," said Mr. Lorenzo,
that evening, "I will just Ml
yon what I think of Mrs Grev.
bill."

' "Vanity of vsinities,all is van
ity."" Such was the exclamation
of one of the wisest 'of men,
when-: reviewing his past life,
arid alter recounting his many
honors and acquirements. Al
though this m:iu had attained
the highest ( honors, and was
surrounded by everything that
could conduce to his happiness,
and, though his life had been
spent in. that way which is con
sidered by the world as most
honorable, yet this is his con
usion.."V'.: : j :'v
In summing up his posses
sions ami attainments he looks
upon them with a feeling of
disappointment; he is dissatis
fied with his life's work. So it
is with all. His words have been
re-echoed by millions in the
subsequent ages. Those who
have (been most successful in
life), reached the summit of
earthly glory, and have been
looked up to with feelings of
envy by their less fortunate
fellows, all at the closa of life
when considering their pas
history, have made this confes
sion.
Byron, whom Kings delight
ed to honor, who, in the lan
guage of the poet, "from every
cup of joy drank draughts that
might have quenched the thirst
of millions," whoso genius has
been described as of such
lofty order that he seemed to
stoop to touch that which other
men scarce reached by the
greatest exertion, viewed his
life with sensations of bitter dis
I i T 1 1 1
appointment, mueeu it is so
with all conditions of mankind
They aro dissatisfied with
tneir lives, wuii uieir ac
tions, and with themselves,
Every one ha? his ideal ; some
thing by which he measures his
actions. No one is satisfied
with his present attainments or
character. His ideal is ever
above the real. It is that which
he is ever striving for, yet
never quite reaches.
Owing to tho different train-
mg,
education, and siirround-
of men, thero is a great
difference between these mod
els. One person's limit of per
fection may be but the starting
point of another's. It is not to
be supposed that the ignorant
savages will aspire to the same
of excellence that the
enlightened Christian does. If
brought in contact with civilzed
people, he may see and admire
the virtues that incite his more
enlightened brother, yot ho nev
er hopes to attain to that de
gree of perfection. It is far be
yond his ideal. He thinks it
impossible for him to reach that
which so far . surpasses his owu
standard. Yet the savage has
his ideal, though it be but a
remove from his , own debased
self ; though it be deformed and
lideous iu the eyes of enligh
tened humanity, it is his con
ception of perfection. Thus it
is with every one. No one is
satisfied with himself. It is a
natural instinct implanted with
in the soul of man by tho Cre
ator lor a noble purpose. It is
well that it is so. By this sense
of imperfection, ho is urged to
make greater efforts, He is led
o strive for solf-improvomp',.
What would be tho result if
man were satisHod r'ith what

CARLETON.
The GoW Hill (Nev.) News,
says : " An Irishman, a resident
of this city, noted for his wit on
all occasions and also for his
successful attack on tho tiger,
was proceeding homo the other
evening and when he had
reached the Divide, was stop
ped by some foot-pads and told
to 'hold up his hands.' The
robbers knew he had made a
large winning and got off
with it, and preceded him for
the purpose of waylaying him.
Pat did not scare worth a cent,
and when stopped, quietly ask
ed the robbers what they want
ed, fhey answered, 'we want
your money!' Pat, quietly
lighting his dudeeu, said : '0,
murther, murther, but ye fellers
are awful thick to-night.' 'Aw
ful thick,' said one of the rob
bers, 'what do you mean ?' 'I
mane,' said Pat, 'this is the
fourth time I was stopped since
I loft Virginny.' One of the
men, disgusted with himself to
think that others of the profes
sion had got in ahead of him,
struck Pat on the neck and
kicked him saying: 'Get out of
here or I will blow the top of
your head 'off.' Pat did 'get'
willingly, and arrived safely at
home with $700 in coin in his
pocket.
That One Vote. "Cnlibnn " the
special correspondent of tlio Cin
cinnati Daily Enquirer, writes from
Columbus, Ohio, under date of Oc
tober 23, 1873, as follows:
"According to a story which I
heard yesterday, thero is one man
hero, an applicant for appointment,
who ought to be preserved as a sort
ol political amulet, just for luck,
by tho party. That man is Captain
Reynolds, and tho place ho wants
is Warden of tho Penitentiary,
Part of the story is historically cor
rect, I know, and tho other portion
I am tt98ured is authentic. In 1830.
when Governor Allen waa elected
to tho Sennte, it was by a single
vote. Tho man who cavo that Min
ority himself was elected by a ma
jority of one. He was tho member
from Ross county; and now it
turns out that the single vote that
placed him in the Lcglislaturo was
cast by this same Captain Rey
nolds, who had been in tho county
ust a year ana a day. He was
challenged at the polls, and estab
lishing his residence there ho was
enabled thus to cast the single bal-
ot that gave us Allen as United
Slates Senator. Such ft man is
certainly valuable to any garty, and
it siionui io seen that the family is
icrpotiiateu.

Calling a Boy in the Morning.
'''The Connecticut editor who
ivrote'the following, evidently
knew' what ho was, talking
about: "Calling up. a boy ! in
the morning can hardly .be
classed under tho head of
"pastimes," especially il the
boy is fond of exercise, the day
beiore. And it is a little sin
gular that the next hardest
thing to getting a boy out of
bed is getting him into it.
There is rarely a mother who
ia a success at rousing a boy.
All mothers know this, so do
their boys. And yet the moth
er seems to go at it in the
right way."- She opens the Btair
door and insinuatingly observes:
'Johnny.' There is no response.
'Johnny.' Still no response.
Then there is a short, sharp
'John' followed a moment later
by a long and emphatic 'John
Henry.' A grunt from the up
per regions signifies that an
impression had been made, and
the mother encouraged, adds,
'You had better be getting down
to your breakfast, young man,
before I come up there, an' give
you something you'll feel.' This
so startles the young man that
he immediately goes to sleep
again. And the operation has
to be repeated several times. A
father knows nothing about the
trouble. He merely opens his
mouth a3 a soda bottle ejects its
cork, and the 'Jt)hn Henry' that
cleaves the air of that stairway
goes into that boy like electric
ity, and pierces the deepest re
cesses of his nature. And he
pops out of that bed and into
his clothes, and down the
stairs, with a promptness that
is commendable. It is rarely a
boy allows himself to disregard
the paternal summons. About
once a year is believed to bo as
often as is consistent with the
rules of health. He saves his
father a great many steps by
his thoughtfulness."
Ingenuity of Counterfeiters.
A very ingenious mode is re
sorted to by counterfeiters to
make a profit by a little manip
ulation of genuine bills. The
plan is in this wise : Take, say,
ten $5 bills, lay one on the oili
er a quarter of an inch below
the tops, something after the
fashion of pasting in tho pro
cess of making paper bags.
When they aro all thus neatly
laid off, a knife is run through
them,, and, of course, from the
first bill a quarter of an inch
will be cut off, a half inch from
the second, three-quarters from
the third, an inch from the
fourth, and so to the tenth bill,
from tho bottom of which there
is taken a very small portion,
nothing more than the bordor.
This bill is left as it is, but to
all the others the parts taken
off are neatly pasted od, and
tho result is that there will be
eleven bill? all perfect, except
a small rjduction in the size of
c.'dch. Of course tho operator
makes livo dollars in every ten.
The amount taken from each is
so small, and tho bills being
generally all of one kind, it is
a very difficut matter to detect
them. It is a very neat ar
rangement to cheat geoplo who
aro not in habit of giving ta
bank bills a very close exami
nation. .

BEET-SUGAR.
Political Independence—Saccharine
Servitude.
The, sugars Imported into the
United States during last year, ex
ceeded in declared value the amount
exported by $30,070,037. Now for
the last seven yeri France, Prus
sia" and Austria hare sent abroad
no money for sugar, but have eup
plied themsclvei frombeeti. Their
example is being rapidly followed
by Russia, Holland, England, and
evfen by Scandinavians. The Uni
Ud States brag that they are ahead
of the times. Will they remain be
hind them, as they clearly are, in
the matter of sugar? If sugar beets
thrive all over Europe, will they
not do well in America? Experi
ments in beet sugar, as at North
ampton, ,Masi Fond du Luc and
Black Hawk, Wia, have" proved '
failures, but ten times as many suc
cessful trials abroad preceeded
final success, and Americans may
learn by the errors of generations.
Three notable bect-sugar facto
ries are now making full proof of
an industry as yet new in America ;
one in Illinois and two in Califor
nia. The Illinois establishment is
in Frecport, those on tho Pacific
slope are in Sacramonto and Alva
rado. Tho two latter have been at
work two years, the other only one.
Tho smallest of them haa a capacity
for working fifty tons of beets daily
and u million and a half pounds of
sugar were turned but last year in
California. The prospers of all
three establishments arc good. Let
them prove a success, the beet fac
tories Trill multiply. The farmers
of Nebraska will learn a nsw trick
in dodging high freights. Among
40,000 immigrants already planted
thore, not a few of them attracted
to the Burlington and Missouri
River Railroad . land on the three
Blues by ten yean' credit, with
nothing of principal payable for
four years, many have raised beets
for foreign factories, well know how
to furnish them best and cheapest
for Nebraska factories. The refuse
?iolp is everywhere worth for stock
ceding, one-half as much as the
original beets.. European beet-su-v
gar manufacture has all grown up
In a generation. Nor is it unlikely
that he who reads theso linos Tmay
livo to see Nebraska self-supplied
with sugar from its own boot beds,
and then that be may live a good
while after that!
