KINDNESS AND ITS REWARD.
Alice sat in front of the little table,
washing the breakfast dishes, a bright
haired girl, with large, wistful blue
eyes, whom you would never suspect to
be a cripple until you saw that she was
seated on a wheeled chair by means of
which she propelled herself back and
Yet, although she herself was the
only servant of the establishment, the
floor was daintily clean, the windows
shone like sheeted diamonds and the
curtains were white and neatly darned.
For little Alice, at eighteen, was a
born housekeeper, and took as much
delight in the details of her homely,
domestic life as if she had been a child
playing with a doll's house instead of
Moses Havwood's crippled daughter.
" It - is puzzlincr sometimes," said
Alice, wrinkling her pretty brows over
the housekeeper's dook; Decause
there's only just so much money and
the expenses have got to be met; and if
you get the least little bit in debt, there
it is, hanging around your neck like a
millstone to the end of the year. But
then, again, if there weren't any difli
culties in this style of housekeeping,
where would be the credit?"
And then Alice would shake her
bright brown braids, bite the end of her
pencil and begin again with her trouble
some array of figures.
But upon this particular day tho color
burned more feverishly than ever in
her cheek; the teacups clinked, nervous
lv toscther as she rinsed them.
But Moses Haywood, a white-haired,
prematurely old man, sat over his
" Classical . Dictionary" at the other
end of the room and only smiled quiet'
lv. v .
" Fifty pounds," said Alice. ' It's a
deal of money, father, dear, and you've
been years saving it up."
"You are right, mjf'dear," said the
school-master, calmly? " It is a deal of
money. But what is money worth if
we can't nse it to help our fellow creat

"He is my wife's cousin, Alice," said
the old man, " and he is in sore need.

Alice. "Father, you'll never see it

and nobody ever thinks of repaying
"Gently, daughter Alice, gently,"
chided the old man. " It is best to be
charitable to all men in thought as well
as in deed. It is true that I had antic
ipated laying this 50 out in a few
boobs for myself, a new dress for you
and a carpet for our sitting room; but
never mind. We shall do very well as
we are, and if Mr. Watklns really needs
this money "
"I don't believe he needs it half as
much as we do," burst in Alice.
And she wheeled her chair across the
room to give the linnet his fresh seed
and water, while Haywood, folding up
the fifty-pound note which had been
the bone of contention, placed it in an
envelope and walked quietly away.
"It's too bad of father," thought
Alice, left alone by herself. " l do be
lieve he would give the coat oil his
back if any one asked for it. But ho
ought to think of himself and be ought
to think of me."
And a few unconscious tears splashed
down on the linnet's glass water-cup as
Alice thought of the long-treasured fifty

Watkins' sat in his back parlor, a
wrinkled old gentleman with light-blue
eyes like staring marbles and a curious
upward sneer to the curves of his mouth.
while on the table in front of him lay a
pile of letters.
"Now we'll see," said Mr. Watkins
to himself, " what all the ties of rela-
tionship are worth. I've written piti
ful letters to my six cousins, and I'll be
willing to wager the biggest diamond

About forty years ago I had a lad in
my employ who had the habit, when
unexpectedly spoken to, of pricking up
his ears in so decisive a manner as to
remind one of the cars of Puss or of
Tray when suddenly called. Marie
Louise, the second wife of the great Na-
fioleon, was in the habit of amusing the
adies of her court at their private
soirees by turning her ears almost com
pletely round, and in a manner closing
them up. She did this by a peculiar
motion of the jaw, and she is said to
have prided herself on the exploit not

Can People Live Without Food?
Dr. William A. Hammond, in his in
teresting little volume on "Fasting
Girls," did not by any means exhaust
the subject to which attention was at
tracted last year by the case of Molly
Fancher and: in which renewed interest
will now be taken because of the pro
posal already noticod in these columns
of a physician in Minnesota to abstain
not only from medicine, which would
bo less surprising, but from food for
a long period under conditions favor
able to the detection of any imposture.
Of niedireval cases, Dr. Hammond cites
several. There was Lidulne, of Schio-
dam, who fell ill in 1305 and remained
an invalid till her death, thirty-threo
years later, and who, after living for
nineteen years on a piece oi appio no
bigger than a holy wafer, every day
washed down with a littlo water, a
swallow of beor or a little swoet milk,
wound up finally by taking nothing
whatever in the shape of nutriment for
fourteen years. There was St. Joseph,
of Copertino, who kept seven forty-day
fasts every year, during which seasons
he ato only on Thursdays and Sun
days, his food even then being bitter
herbs and dried fruits. Ihoro was St.
Nicolas, of Flue (not to be confounded
with St. Nicholas of tho New York
chimney) who, as ho had embraced the
monastic life, abandoned all food what
ever savo tho Holy buchanst, which,
according to tho pious Gorres, so as
similated his grosser being to itself
that, introduced into a superior sphere,
he lived exclusively by grace and by
heaven. There was the nun of Leices
ter, in tho thirteenth century, who also
lived on the Eucharist for seven years;
and there were those other holy
persons Saint Peter of Alcantara,
Saint Roso of Lima, Saint Catherine
of Sienna, and Saint Colloto who
also acquired the power of liv
ing on the sacramental bread. Fast
ing girls, says Dr. Hammond, came
in with modern times, the pious absti
nent having vanished with the Ages of
Faith. Margaret Weiss, a girl of ten,
living near Spires, was accredited with
living for three years without food or
drink. She succeeded in deceiving the
parish priest and Dr. Geraldus Bucol
dianus, who watchod her, and the good
doctor made a conundrum out of her in
his book narrating her case: " Why
does the body grow when nothing goe
into ltr" " Appotonia bchroira, a vir
gin in Berne, after being examined
ana watched by tho Bernese magis
trates, was declared to live without eat
ing; " in the first year of her fasting
she scarcely slept, and in the second
year never once closed her eyes in
sleep." Katherine Binder of tho Palati
nate was said to have taken nothing
but air during nine years, and Eva
Fliegen, of Meurs, according to the
magistrates and ministers, " took no
kind of sustenance for the space of four
teen years together." Cardinal Riche
lieu's physician, Franciscus Citesius,
tells of Joan Balaam, of Constance,
who after an attack of fever took a
loathinsr to food, and for nearly threo
years abstained from it altogether, her
appetite subsequently returning. In
1595 there was brought to Cologne a
girl of eleven who, it was affirmed, had
lived without food or drink of any kind
for three yerrs. In this case, accord
ing to Dr. Hammond, organic disease
seems to hf.ve been complicated with
fraud and 1 ysteria. Perhaps we need
not cite the works of John Hey don, an
enthusiast jf the Rosie Cross, who held
that men c.ould easily fast all their lives,
should t).e same even extend to 300
years, r.nd who fairly smacks his
lips as it were, like a very glutton,
over, "the nne foreign fatness" in
the air which ought to be sufficient
for all moderate folk. He admits
that people of enormous appetites
mierht from time to time indulge in the
additional stimulus of a plaster of
cooked meat applied to the epigastri
um. Chambers, however, prints a great
many cases of alleged abstinence ex
tending over protracted periods.
Among these may be mentioned that of
cecena Kygeway, whom Jtawara in.
pardoned April 25, 1357, "moved by
pietvland for the glory of God and the
Blossod Virgin," who had wrought
miracle in enabling her to live forty
days in Nottingham jail without food
or drink, when accused ' of her hus
band's murder, and John Scott, the
Faster, a man of Teviotdale, who in
1531 took sanctuary in the Abbey of
Holyrood House, where he remained
thirty or forty days without food, and
then by order of the King was shut up
in the castle for thirty-two days, at the
end of which period the bread and
water left in the cell with him were
found to bo untouched. Scott after
ward went to Rome, where Clement
VII. certified to the honesty of his ab
stinence, an exhibition of which he gave
also at Venice; after his return, as he
claimed, from the Holy land, Scott
went to London, where, for preaching
against Henry VIII.'s defection from
tho church and his divorce from Katha
rine of Arragon, he was cast into prison
where he remained for fifty days, little
disconcerted and still fasting. Alber-
gati of Bonoma investigated Scott's
case at his own house, and bept. l
1532, after a trial of eleven days, at
tested bis belief that the man lived
without eating. The case of Mary
Waughton, of Wiggiuton, in Stafford
shire, is also given, who lived on
spoonful of milk and water a day, with
a piece oi Dreau as large as a nan
crown or a bit of meat the size of a pig
eon's egg. "Being of the Church
England," says tho orthodox Dr. Robert
Plot, " she is the loss likely to put
trick upon the world." Then there
are the cases oi unristina juicneiot,
of France, a girl of eleven, who from
November, 1751, to May, 1755, lived
upon water, afterwards displaying her
normal appetite; of Ann Walsh,
Harrowgate, a girl of twelve, who for
eighteen months, beginning in 1762,
subsisted solely on a daily allowance
a third of a pint of wine and water;
the sick boy at Uhateaurous, in franco
who ate nothing for a whole year, yet
bad strength enough to labor with the
men on his fathers farm; of the man
of Stamford, who, in 1771, for a
wager abstained for hfty-two days from
solid food or milk; of Pennant s fast

" Janet" who, after an attack of fever,
lived for twenty-one months without
nourishment, a suffocating constriction
compelling her parents to desist when
they tried to pry open her teeth, do
press her tongue and pour a little gruel
down her throat. Subsequently she
took to drinking water and after nine
years of abstinence she ate a little. Dr.
Mackenzie, who communicated this ac
count of her case to the Royal Society
(Phil. Trans,, ixvii., 1), saw her again

was much more liberal, but even then

who set out to fast forty days and actu
ally survived for sixteen without food
of any kind. In 1771 was mentioned
the case of a Suabian woman of thirty-
seven, Monica Mutcheteria, who, after
a fever and nervous attack, lived
two years on little curds or whey and
water and for a third without any food
at all, passing all threa years in a state
of sleeplessness. In 1786 Dr. Willan
was called in to attend to a mono-
maniao said to have lived sixty-one day
without food and who survived sev
enteen days longer, the physician
being able to force a little sustenance
into him. 4 more famous case is that
of Ann Moore, of Sudbury, England,
who, at the beginning of the present
century, asserted that ebe was able
do without food. Her fame spread
abroad and brought her crowds of visit
ors and a good income, 250 having
bcon derived from thoir bounty in two
years. She eluded one " test" with
success and ventured upon another, but

and on the ninth day, being so weak
that her death seemed imminent, sho

fasting for six years was a falsehood.
he hrst watchers had been deceived
for three weeks by her daughters giving
her food when kissing her or when
washing her face with towels dipped in
milk or gruel, by squeezing the liquid
into her mouth. In 1811 a fasting man
named Cavannugh appeared at Road-
ng; he wa9 dotected in his fraud, how
ever, and, November 20, sent to prisoifr
and stuffod for threo months. In Sop
tember, 1852, Elizabeth Squirrel, of
Shottesham, Suffolk, bamboozled a
number of " medical men, clergymen,
isscntine ministers and members of
the aristocraoy" into believing that she
had lived for three months witnout
food and in the enjoyment of com
munion with angelio visitors, but a
igid watch disclosed fraud. In 18G7
began the famous case of Sarah
Jacob, the Welsh Fasting Girl. She
was ten years old and after strong con
vulsions of an epileptiform gradually
lost hor appetito till in October sho ate
nothing but a bit of applo, the size oi a
pill, daily. Even this she ceased to
take on tho 10th, and thereafter till her
death, December 17, 1869, according
to her parents and friends, she took no
nutriment of any kind whatever. Her
case was soon noised abroad, to tho
great fame and not inconsiderable profit
of her parents, and many converts were
made to a belief in her truthfulness, in
cluding tho vicar of tho parish, who
became quite enthusiastic. A system
atic fortnight's watch was attempted in
March-April, 1869, but some of the
watchers got drunk, others slept and still

from Guy's were sent down to take en

their watch on the 9th at 4. p. m.; on
the 16th she was failing so visibly that
the parents were urged to withdraw
the nurses and give her food, but they
refused, saying that she had often been
as weak before. On the 7th at 3:30,

saw-fly," the Professor continued,
" and this will illustrate tho develop

saws; but one day a fly got a few, and
found it was a tine thing to have them,
so he kept them, and thereafter all saw
flies had saws. These little insects all

You might as well pick up a watch and

Stretched over a frame on the plat
form was a piece oi muslin big enough
to bave been one of the sheets of th
great bed of Ware, and in front of it
was a miorosoopio stereopticon. Some
body went behind the scenes to turn
down the lights, and turned them all
the way out, leaving the big ball in
darkness. The Professor then threw
upon the screen a photograph of a
devil-fish in the Aquarium. So it
looked, at least, but he said it was only
the leg of a common house spider. It
bad a claw on the end of it like a lob
ster, and bristles sticking out all over
it like the limbs of trees. It was dead.
Then came the foot of a tarantula,
fully big enough to have corns, and the
log and foot of a fly, and then
the leg of another fly. A speci
men of the itch" was showni
and the dust of a butterfly's
wing, each particle of dust a complete
feather. Then came the head of a
trichina, with a bill about eight foot
long, to be usod for the cheerful pur
pose of boring into your muscles; tho
gizzard of a cricket, looking like fine
lace; the proboscis of a butterfly, about
thirty-five feet long; the mouth of a fly,
something the size of an elephant's ear;
the head of an ant, with a very big, flat,
but benevolent-looking nose; attennro
from the head of a oockro'ach that
would reach from the Bowling Green
to South Ferry, and tho sting of a bee.
This and the point of a fine needle,
shown immediately afterward, were
among the most interesting parts of the
exhibition, showing what a clumsy
workman art is, compared with himble-

under the powerful mlcroscopo, tapered
off to a point too fine for the eye to ap
preciate, but the point of a fine No. 17
needle looked like the mouth-end of a
clumsy cigar. The eye of a mosquito
looked like a honey-comb. A drop of
the Hour and water was toon shown,
exhibiting a paradise for Liliputian
anglers, with thousands of eels, and all
sorts of squirming ana wriggling hsh.
A water tiger was next exhibited, and
the wing of a Chinese lan.tern-fly, mak
ing a surface big enough to carpet a
Murray Hill drawing-room; then the
mouth of a house-fly again with two
big tusks; a bed-bug, tho size of a goat,
(showing, from his formation, that it is
better always to grasp him immediate
ly back of the forelegs,) and a jumping
flea, that looked for all tho world like a
The great act was reserved for the
last; tho water tiger was brought out
to be fed. An innocent little creature
was put into the water with tho tiger,
and the big follow lot him skip around
and flourish for a while, for all the
world like a "master" in Wall Street,
and then the tiger made a spring, and
behold, the innocent little insect was
swallowed; you could see him going
down the tiger s throat, and away down
into his innards. Then the tiger brought
out a couple ot arms he had not used
before, and patted himself on the laws,
as if he were saying to himself: " Well
done, old boy!" Then a water spider
was put in with the tiger, and they
were to fight. They made a great com
motion for a few minutes till spider
legs and tiger claws were scattered all
over tho screen, and then the tiger in
trenched himself in one corner of the
drop, and the spider did the same in
the opposite corner, and they dared
each other to come on. But neither
came on, and they were taken out to bo
A Scotch Lassie's Romance and Its Sad
Sometime ago a gentleman who lives
in Allegheny went abroad for a pleas
ant trip, taking with him his wife and
young children, borne oi the gentle
man's immediate ancestors had been
born in Scotland, and he desired to
spend considerable time in that coun
try, and did so. During the visit of
the party one of the children was taken
sick at Dunkeld, a little town in Perth
shire, on the left bank of Tav. The
town had but few accommodations, but
as the child was too weak to be moved
the family wero compelled to take lodg
ings in a hotel and wait lor the little
one's recovery. The mother became
worn out with watching the sick boy
and his father asked the doctor iit he
knew of any one who could be obtained
as a nurse and promising liberal pay.
The doctor said he knew just the right
kind of a person, provided she would
consent to serve as nurse. She was
Jeannie, daughter of the clergyman
who had formerly had charge of the
Vli1r a n ft whn baH Hlot lonvlnrr bla
only child an orphan, poor and almost
friendless. She had always been good
to the poor and needy during her fa
ther's lifetime, and after he had lefther
she had gone to the house of a friend to
remain until she could obtain some
kind of work. The doctor told Jeannie
how matters stood, and she at once de
clarcd her willingness to nurse the sick
child, and accordingly took her place
at bis bedside. Ihe bright, cheerful
face of the girl, and her winning man
ners, made her a great favorite with
the children and their parents, and
when they were about to leave Dunkeld
the mother insisted on Jeannie coming
to this country with her as a governess
of the children and a companion for
herself. To this Jeannie objected
stoutly, and said, with many blushes
and much confusion, that she could not
leave Dunkeld! Then the reason came
out. She was engaged to be married
to the young man whom she had known
since childhood, and who was to marry
her as soon as ne was able, lie was
guard on the North British Railroad.
" Why could not Stewart come, too?'
said the father of tho boy whom Jean
nie bad so faithfully watched. " I will
find work for him in Pittsburg, and you
need not be separated."
Then it came out that Stewart had
sister who was bedridden, and who had
no support, and this was the reason
why the marriage had not taken place
before. Jeannio was persuaded to go
to Dundee to see Stewart and aBk his
advice, and he was urgent in his coun
sel that she sho should accept tho lib
eral offer that had been made to her
and go to America. He told her he
would follow her here when he was able
to provide for his sister. Stewart added
that tho doctors said that the sick girl
could not outlive the winter. Poor
Joannie was all tears and sorrow when
she left with her friends, but she heard
regularly from Stewart, and on arriving
here she soon became accustomed to
her new life and liked it greatly. About
a month ago Stewart wrote to her that
his sister was dead, and that ho would
leave for America about the 1st of Jan
uary. Jeannie's songs and smiles be
came more frequent, and she looked for
ward eagerly for the arrival of the new
On Tuesday last the papers contained
the account of the terrible accident to
the Edinborough train on the bride
over the Frith of Tay. Jeannio heard
about it, and hurriedly read the mea
gre account that had been sent by cable.
She did not say much when she finished
the dispatch until her mistress told her
not to worry about Stewart, as be was
probably all right. Then she began to
sob, and cried out: "It isna all right
it was Stewart a train, and btewart'
drowned!" Next morning came th
particulars of the disaster, and a list of
the names of those drowned, btewart
name was among the list of the train
men, and when Jeannie read it she
went to her room and would not see
any one until the following morning.
Then she came quietly down stairs and
went about her usual dutios without
word to anybody. She looked ten years
older than she did before, but she made
no complaints, and has not referred to
her loss since that first sad day, and
her friends in their pity and warm sym
pathy aro watching her anxiously to
see that she does not do herself some
harm. And thus even this far-away
calamity shows how long-reacbed are

Farmers who are wide awake and
given to investigation don t sow so
much wheat per acre as they formerly
did, and they don't sow it so deep. The
great, heavy harrows of ten or twenty
years ago are not now employed by
them in covering seed, and tho drill,
which can be depended on hotter, is
becoming universally popular. In
broadcast sowing, after the ground is
thoroughly prepared, a light smoothing
harrow covers the seed deep enough.
A Wisconsin writer gives the result in

inch, one-half inch, three-fourths inch
and so on to several inches. Ihat on
the surface lay two weeks before sprout

inches deep came up in four or hve
days, and so on, getting later as the
depth increased. The last to come up
was planted three and a half inches
deep and was fourteen days in reach
ing the surface. None planted deeper
ever reached the surface. At the end
of six weeks that planted one-fourth to
one-half inch deep stood far ahead of
A Playful Elephant.
Romeo, the elephant, amused him
self in various ways during a recent
steamboat voyage on the Mississippi
from New Orleans to Cincinnati, lie
made himself quite free with the freight
that was within his reach, and tumbled
boxes, barrels and bales promiscuously.
At Vicksburg the hawser, a heavy
cable some three inches in diameter,
was used to tie up the boat. The ob
serving Komeo saw tne deck nanus
haul it in once or twice, when he con
cluded that he could do it
himself quite as well as the dozen men
As long thereafter as be was Kept on
the forecastle he hauled the hawser, so
fur, at least, au hauling it in was con
cerned. The deck hands dragged it
out and made it fast, but the moment
it was untied the elephant seized it with
his trunk and hauled it aboard. The
bell-wires running- from the Dilot
house to the engine room passed un
der the cabin floor directly over his
back. He evidently noticed that when
the wires moved the bell rang. He be
gan to ring the bells himself by pulling
the wires with his trunk. The first
time he jerked the bell-wire the en
gineer stopped the boat. " What's the
matter?" asked the pilot through the
speaking tube. " Nothing,1' responded
the engineer. " What did you stop
her for?" "Because you rang the
bell." "I didn't ring." "Ting-a-ling-
ling-ling!" clattered the bell as if there
wero spirits in it. Tho engineer rushed
out just in time to catch Komeo jerking
the wire and the mystery was explained.
Famously Taken In.
" I got famously taken in on that
occasion," saia tne duko. ine troops
had taken to plundering a good deal.
It was necessary to stop it, and I issued
an oruer announcing mat tne iirsc man
taken in the act should be hanged on
the spot. One day, just as we were
sitting down to dinner, three men were
brought to tne door of tne tent oy tne
Provost. The case against them was
clear, and I had nothing for it but to
desire that they should be taken away
and hanged in some place wuore tney
might be seen by the whole column in
its march the next day. I had a good
many guests with me on that occasion,
and among the rest, I think, Lord Nu
gent. They seemed dreadfully shocked,
and could not eat their dinner. I didn't
like it much myself, but, as I told them,
I had no time to indulge my feelings;
must do my duty. Well, the dinner
went oft rather gravely; and next morn
ing, sure enough, three men in uniform
were seen hanging from the branches
of a tree close to the high-road. It was
a terrible example and produced the
desired effect; there was no more plun
dering; when, some months afterward,
I learned that one of my staff took
counsel with Dr. Hume, and as three
men had just died in the hospital they
hung them up and let tho three cul
prits return to their regimenta."
"Weren't you very angry, DukeP"
"Well, I suppose I waa at first, but
I bad no wish to take the poor fellows'
lives and only wanted the example, and
as the example had the desired effect,
mr anger soon died out, and I confess
to you that I am very glad now that
the three lives were spared." WaiU't
