aud what money he now earned cauie
from odd Jobs of tinkeriug which he
was able to do here aud there at pri

One day Tom had a job to mend a
broken mowing machine and reaper,
for wLicc be received t- and on the
following morning he etarted out for
his old haunt the village tavern. He
knew that liia wife sadly needed the
money, and that liia two little chil
dren were in absolute autTering from
want of clothing:, and that morning
he held a deflate with the better part
of blmielf, hut the better had ltecome
very weak and tthaky, and the de
mon of appetite carried the day.
tio away to the tavern Tom went,
wnere, for two er three hours, he felt
the exhilarating efiects of the alcohol
ic draught, and fancied himself hap
py, aa as could sing and laugh ; but
aa Usual, atnivtifaclioa followed, and
the man filed out. He drank while
he could stand, and then lay down in
a correr, where bis companion Iett

night, when the landlord's wife came
into the bar-room to aee what kept her
husband np and abe quickly saw
"i'eter," eaid abe, not in a pleasant
mood, "why don't you send that mis
erable Tom Jjurcy home ? He's been
hanging aroird here long enough."
Tom' atupfaction waa not Bound
sleep. The dead coma had left his
brain, and the calling of his name
Blutig bis acuaea to keen atlention.
He bad an insane love for rum, bat
did not love the landlord. In other
yeata Peter Tlodar and bltnaelf had
loved and wooed the aweet maiden
Ellen (Joes and be won ber, leaving
Peter to take cp with the vinegary
apinater who bad brought him to the
tavern, and ha knew that lately the
tap3ter bad floated over the mbery
of the woman that had once discar

demanded Lira. Tind&r, with an Im
patient euap of the foot.
'Hush, Betsy ! He's got money.
Let him we, and he'll be sure to spend
it before goea home. I'll have the
kernel of that nut and his wife may

With a sniil and a snap Betsy turn
ed away, and shortly afterward Tom
Uarcy lined hiioseii up on his el'
"Ah, Tom, are you awake ?"
"Yes." - -
"Then rouKe un and have a warm

And with thlB be went Into tbe
chili air of tbe night. When .be got
away from tbe eliadow of the tavern
be stopped and looked np to the stars
and then be looked down opon - tbe
"Aye," be muttered, grinding bis
heel in the gravel, "Peter Tlndar is
taking the kernel, and leaving poor
Ellen the worthless busk a busk
more than worthless I and I am help
log bim to it. I am robbing my wife
of Joy, robbing my children of honor
and comfort, and robbing mysolf of
love and lif e just that Peter Tlndar
may have the kernel and Ellen the
husk! We'll eee!"
It was a revelation to the man.
The tavern keeper's speech, meant
not for I. is ears, had come on his
sense as fell the voice xt tbe lUsen
One upon Saul of Tareus.'
"We'll see 1" he said, setting bia
foot flrrtily upon the ground ; and
then he wended bia way homeward.

to his wife i
'Ellen, have you any colTee in tbe

that ber sister bad given it to ber.
Hbe was glad to bear bim ask for cof
fee Instead of tbe old, old cider.
"I wish you would make me a cup
good and strong."
There waa really music lu Tom's
voise and tbe wife set about ber work
with a strange fluttering at tbe heart.
Tom drank two cups of tiie strong,
fragrant coffee, and then went out
went out with a resolute step and
walked straight np to the great manu

"Mr, Scott, I want to learn my
trade over again."
"Eh, Tom ! what do yon mean ?"
"I mean that it's Tom Darcy come
i?k to tbe old place, asking forgive-uf-84

better In tbe fature."
"Tom,' cried tbe manufacturer,
starting forward and grasping bis
band, "are yea In earnest ? Is it real

"It's what's left of bim, sir, and we
will have bim whole and strong very
soon, if you'll only set bim at work."
"Work ! Aye, Tom, and bless you,
too ! There is an engine to be set np
and tested to-day. Come wltb me.
Tom's bands were weak and un
steady, but bis brain waa clear, and
under bis skillful supervision tbe en
gine was set up and tested ; but it
waa not perfect. There were mistake 3
which be bad to correct, and it waa
late in tbo evening when tbe work

ducted by iStallord Kotie. Tiie com-
uiunlcatiou cuarges the proprlotors of
the Institution with fraudulently ob
taining students by induing circulars
which state that the school la an im
mense Institution, with betweeu 1,200
and 1,41X1 pupils ; Uiat it Is one of tbo
most thorough schools In tbe country,
with a large and able cor pa of teach
ers in tbe various departments, and
that Btudsnts who graduate here are
at once furnlahod situaUons at rather
princely salaries for these dull times.
Tbe circular", in fact, bold out the
most extravagant Inducements, and
state that if parties who waut thor
ough business education have not the
money to come here and take the reg
ular courses at the institution, they
can, with profit to themselves, bor
row the required sum and come on,
get their education, and they will
be put at work at once in
some cf tbe mercantile bouses

who have taken tbe advice thus given
by the proprietors of the school, and
who have come bere from various
States, have found that tbe college is
humbug, and some of them are now
working on farms and as bouse-eer-vauts

money enough to return borne. The

very hot for tbe proprietors of the In-

much truth to warrant any apprehen

any legal steps to set themselves right
by suing the jzeguter for libel. The
parties who have been taken in
by tbe circulars sent out by tbe school
are nearly all eons and daughters of
poor people, who have no money to
waste on such men as Stafford & Beele.

that the celebration was properly ob
served, and quite a number or people
had come from abroad to participate
in tbe fosUvities. A banquet, to
crown tbe occasion, was prepared, to
which the people of Lodi contribu
