A Story of Early Days in Michigan.
BY II. II. JOHNSON;
OF WILLI G I. A.
Carrie and her brother Julian had
many an excursion in the woods sur
rounding their log house during the
Spring, she In search of specimens of
flowers for her herbarium, for besides
being an ardent lover of the beautiful
in nature, she had, in hot sc hool days,
discovered n taste and aptitude for tlie
studvof botanv. in wliichsho was not
only permitted but encouraged to in-
dulire bv her' teachers, until so far as
book knowledge is concerned, her ac
quirements as a botanist were of no
llere in the primeval forest, In direct
proximity to hundreds of species of the
floral creation, for it Is a fact firmly es
tablished by all who have visited the
'Michigan forests during the month of
May and Juno, that the ground is liter
ally carpeted with flowers almost count
less in number and variety. Hero who
could commune directly with the floral
world in which sho manifested so ab
sorbing an interest, and her herbarium
which, when sho left Hehenectady was
exceedingly mean in its dimensions,
soon began to assume proportions which
attested not only industry, hut trained
intelligence; for each specimen was
classified and correct data subjoined in
regard to its habits and everything else
of interest connected with it.
This herbarium wight have been
sneered at by many of the ignorant set
tlers of the woods, but by the educated
and intelligent,lt would be esteemed ex
Julian always attended her upon these
"scientific explorations" as he denomin
ated them, for he had some fear of per
mitting her to go far in the woods alone
and unattended. Sho had seen a few
of tho timid, wild-eyed deer, and of
tliem she was not afraid; but the wholo
family had, several times, heard the
shrill scream of the prowling panther,
and tho blood-curdling howl of the ma
rauding wolves, and tracks of a bear
had been discovered at the spring near
the house and in the moist earth along
the larger stream that flowed through
the forest at no great distance away;
but as yet, nono of these animals had
been seen by any member of the family,
still it was evident they were some
where in the woods, and Carrie did not
care to meet them alone.
She had the fullest confidence in the
courage and marksmanship of hei
brother, and believed that should any
of these wild beasts be met by them in
their rambles, her brother would suc
cessfully defend her from their teeth 01
Julian always carried his ride with
him when he accompanied his sister in
her rambles in search of botanical epeci"
mens. lie knew the confidence his sis
ter reposed in his courage and skill, and
ho often wished that an emergency
might arise in which he could have an
opportunity to display both in defense of
her and himself; but thus far, all nox
ious wild beasts had manifested a
wholesome regard for their own lives,
by keeping at a safe distance; doubtless
preferring to die from old ago rather
than to meet sudden and violent death
by presenting their bodies a target for
Julian's unerring rillc; or perhaps, as
Beems more likely, chance had never
placed the aforesaid wild beasts and the
courageous boy in each other's way.
; From these "explorations" Julian
never returned empty handed; for a
wild turkey, a rabbit or a partridge or
some other deliciously edible game was
certain to show itself within ranee of
his rifle, and as certain to fall beneath
his unerring bullet; or a fine string of
fish, captured by. his hook and line,
would accompany him on hishomcward
march, to grace tho next day's dinner
Thus the Spring and early Summer
passed away, and eacli day extended not
a little the boundaries of tho clearing
surrounding the log house; for Mr. La
Vergne and Pat labored diligently, and
although they were not accumulating
flesh very rapidly, as the severe labor
they were performing was not conducive
to adiposity, they were growing Btrong
and muscular, and moreover wero as
healthy as two bears and pretty rugged
bears at that.
It would be well to state the impor
tant fact before forgetting it, that on
the Sunday succeeding the visit of the
Methodist preacher, all hands repaired
1 to the designated point in the woods to
. hear him preach; and strict Presby
terians as they were, Mr. and Mrs. La
Vergne had always been accustomed to
hearing the gospel dispensed by preach
ers who possess enviable and well-earned
reputations for learning and oratory;
yet they were charmed with this quaint
specimen of the clerical profession and
' his unique eloquence.
There was something in his preach
ing which did more than please the re
fined intelligence. ;; It touched the heart
of every nearer, and each member of
- the congregation was made to feel that
tlie preacher; was not only their pastor,
but their warm, true mend.
Fat, although a strict Boman Catho
V. tttended the meeting with the oth
. ' rt was heard afterward to em-
chrictrnrd a Roman Catholic, he would
bo a Methodist.
After the services were over, the new
fomers w ere Introduced by tlie preacher
to each of the settlers nsscmbled"there,
and the greetings and good wishes they
received were of the heartiest kind;
and when they departed for their home,
they realized that their neighbors,
though perhaps uncouth and unpolish
ed, possessed qualities of heart and
good-fellowship which are scarce com
modities among tho faslilonaiiio ana
superficially rellned denizens of tho
After that day, mey auenueu ciiuicn
services or rather religious services in
the woods, regularly, and soon becamo
established on terms of tlie wannest
friendship with all their neighbors;
many of whom soon called upon them
to better tho acquaintance already bo
gun; but of course, where neighbors aro
isolated from each other as tlie settlers
were by milesof heavily timbered forest,
where roads are not always in the most
delightfully travelable condition, visits
were less frequent than might have
been desired by all parties.
The Spring and early Summer passed
away. A space of a few square rods in
extent immediately adjoining the house,
had been entirely cleared of trees,
bushes, and as far as possible of stumps.
The ground had been spaded and made
mellow, seeds of onions, lettuce, coin,
beans, potatoes and the like had been
planted, and already a luxuriant growth
of garden vegetables was beginning to
gladden the eyes and hearts of the fami
ly, w ho hoped ere long to satiate their
appetites with esculent vegetables of
their own production.
Then a liltlo cloud began to show it
self in the horizon of that family's hap
piness. Willie, who had been a delicate
child since his birth, began to manifest
symptoms which caused the remainder
of the family no little anxiety.
At first they fondly hoped that it
would prove only a slight indisposition
which, under such medical treatment
as they knew how to administer, would
speedily pass away; but despite all their
efforts, he did not seem to improve, but
on the contrary, gradually grew worse.
He had been ailing a few days, and
one night after all the family except
Mr. and Mrs. La Vergne had retired, ho
suddenly crew worse, so much so that
they decided not to seek their beds un
til a favorable change should appear.
As they sat beside tlie bed upon which
the little sufferer lay, anxiously watch
ing his labored breathing and noting
tho red flush that glowed in his hot
cheeks with such intensity as to render
them almost purple in hue, their coun
tenances plainly indicated tlie anxiety
it was useless for them to attempt to
After watching tho little sufferer
awhile, Mrs. La Vergne spoke in a low
tone so as not to disturb him:
"Paul. I am afraid lllie is more
seriously ill than we have supposed.'
"I think lie Is much worse than he has
been." answered Mr. La Vercne. "What
we have done for him has seemed to ac
complish nothing inbis favor; and if ho
is no better bv mornintr. we will send
for a physician."
"Whore can we lind a physician in
these woods?" inquired .Mrs. La Vergne,
looking up quickly at her husband. 'I
am sure we have never heard of a pro
fessional medical man anywhere about
"I know of none," answered Mr. La
Vergne, "except tlie old preacher Mor
rison. Ho told me once, that in his
younger days he studied medicine and
graduated, and was given a diploma;
but that after practicing a short time,
he became converted and prepared him
self for the ministry, since which he has
pursued that calling; but he also said
that luf practices the profession learned
in his youth, here in the woods whero
there is no other doctor, and although
ho made no boast of great things he has
accomplished in healing, all tlie neigh
bors with whom I have spoken in re
gard to it, says that his efforts aro usu
ally attended by success. Of one thing
I am positive, he would do the best ho
could, let the result be as it might."
"1 wish be were here now," said Mrs.
La Vergne in a low, anxious tone of
voice, as she arose and softly moved to
the side of little Willie who was moan
ing in his sleep, and without disturbing
him, arranged the pillow so that be
mieht rest easier. "I wish he wero hero
now, for I know the child is very sick
What is it, Willie?" she continued bend
ing over and kissing him upon his little
hot forehead as he cried out in his sleep
and threw up his little hands and clasp
ed them over his forehead. "Does
Willie want anything'!' Ma's so sorry
The father gazed on in silence, and
after a few moments, the mother again
spoke, placing her hand gently on the
little clenched ones of her child:
"His hands are so hot and dry, I think
he has fever. Just touch his poor little
Tlie father complied, and as ho did
so he shook his head and muttered in o
low tone as if speaking to himself:
"It is so; and I am afraid we have de
layed sending for assistance too long
already; the boy is very sick."
"What If tho poor child should die
What would we do alone hero in the
woods?" suddenly exclaimed Mrs. La
Vergne, looking up with a startled ex
pression upon her countenance. "0, if
we had only remained at Schenectady,
or gone to some other place where physi
cians are near at hand!" And she sank
down, and covering her face with her
hands, burst into silent weeping.
"Don't. Mary." said the husband in
soothing tone. "Don't give way to grief
in this manner. Don't speak of the
child dying, for I hope and think lie Is
in no danger, and we are anxious be
yond what there is cause for: however
I will call Pat. and ask him toco for
the old preacher, although I hate to dis
turb him, for, poor fellow, lie lias had a
nard day s work and needs his rest
But if he had any hesitancy In regard
to awakening Pat it was soon overcome;
for at that instant his wife raised her
eyes to his in such a pleading manner
that, rather than refuse their mute ap
peal, ho would have gono any distance
on foot in tho darkest, stormiest night,
although there really might have been
no cause for doing so.
He quickly stepped to tho loft in
which Pat was soundly sleeping, and
perpetrating a series of snores that
rivaled tho bellowing of a locomotive
surcharged with steam and blowing off
In tho most ear-splitting manner. Hous
ing Pat, ho informed him of the condi
tion of Willie, and asked him if he
would go after tho old preacher and
urge him to come at once and see the
Pat needed no second bidding, for he
dearly loved the little fellow and almost
would have lain down his own life to
save that of the boy; but quickly jump
ing out of bed, in u surprisingly brief
space of time, donned his clothing and
was ready for tho night journey of sev
Mr. La Vergno told him to mount one
of the horses, and as it was a bright,
moonlight night, he might ride as fast
as he clioso on his errand.
Pat hurried out of tlie house, and soon
the clattering of departing hoofs told
that he was hastening on his journey.
Tho noise made by Mr. La Vergne
aroused Carrio and Julian, who were
soon dressed and at the bedside of their
little brother, equally as anxious in his
behalf as were their father and mother.
The several hours that must neces
sarily elapse beforo Pat and Mr. Mor
rison the preacher and medical practi
tioner combined could arrive, were
tedious enough. Nono of the family
sought their beds again that night, but
all grouped themselves about the bed of
the sick child, dividing the time be
tween striving to make him as comfort
able as possible, and looking at the lit
tle clock that ticked away in its place
upon the mantel, unconscious how slow
ly, to tho anxious watchers, its hands
seemed to move in their steady march
around its placid face.
lint little was spoken by any of them,
and that little in subdued, whispered
tones, lest tho sound of their voices
should disturb the little one who was
restlessly sleeping and moaning in his
sleep as if in pain.
How slowly and tediously such hours
pass, only those who have watched by
the bedside of a sick loved ono have
any adequate knowledge.
At length, just as the gray streaks of
dawn began to shoot up in tho east,
harbingers of tlie coining day, the sound
of approaching hoofs was heard, and
each heart in the log house beat lighter,
for the sound denoted the return of Pat
accompanied by medical assistance.
A lew minutes later, the door was
quietly opened and Pat closely followed
by Mr. Morrison, entered. Mr. Mor
rison, alter saluting the tamily, ap
proached the bedsido and placed bis
lingers upon the wrist of the sick child,
while a troubled look settled upon his
usually pleasant and benevolent couutO'
nance. For the space of a couple of
minutes lie bii'uI not a word, and tho
gaze of every member of the family was
riveted upon his face, striving to read
there something that should give them
hen one of our near anil dear ones
is seriously ill, and the doctor comes to
viply his skill in restoring them to
healili, how eagerly we scan hiscounte
nance, watching every movement of his
features, for in them we can read a lan
guage sometimes nioro expressive than
words; but the language the La Vergne
family read in the face of the old physi
cian gave them little or no encourage
After the space of a couple of min
utes, Mr. Morrison spoke in a low touo
of voice, shaking his head in an omi
bad case. A very bad case in
"Do you think he is so very sick Mr.
Morrison?" inquired Mr. La Vergne
w hile his wife's pleading eyes mutely
repeated the question.
"Ho is a very sick child, Mr. La
Vergne," answered the doctor, "and I
w ill plainly say to you that his chances
for recovery are decidedly Braall. How
ever we w ill do the best we can for him
and trust to a good God who does all
things for tlie best, that our efforts may
be blest with success."
"Do all you can for him, Doctor," said
Mr. La Vergne, "and may He who is
all-powerful, bless the means which you
employ for bis recovery, for we cannot
spare our Willie."
"(toil's ways are always just and
right," answered the preacher; "al
though in our weakness, and ignorance
f II is great plans.we are sometimes dis
posed to criticise, or think it would be
better otlierw ise." And be opened a med
icine case he carried with him.and tak
ing therefrom a phial, dropped a few
drops of a reddish liquid into a spoon
and adding a little water, placed it into
the child's mouth.
With difficulty tho child swallowed
the medicine, and then the doctor sat
down upon a chair and waited to note
No perceptible effect being produced,
he administered a second dose with ap
parently no favorable result. Tho child
appeared steadily to grow worse.
After sunrise, breakfast was hastily
prepared, and all except the mother
partook sparingly of it, for anxiety on
account of the little sufferer destroyed
their usually hearty appetites.
Mrs. La Vergne refused to eat any
thing, merely shaking her head and re
sponding to all entreaties that she
should do so, by saying that it was im
possible for her to partake of food while
her child was suffering so acutely.
About the middle of the forenoon, a
sudden and ominous change came over
tho child. The doctor quickly stepped
to his side and gazed earnestly upon
him for a moment, while his lip quiver
ed with emotion.
Noticing the act of the physician, Mr.
La Vergne eagerly inquired: "What is
"God's will be done," answered the
old preacher. "We have done all in our
power to restore this dear one to health,
but tod has ordered otherwise. Let us
submit to His will, Brother La Vergne,
for He knows what is best for the
child. .. - .. .
u there no hope?" asked Mr. La
Vergne in a tone of anguish, and the
poor mother, wiin a groan, saint down

Carrie ami Julian burst into tears,
and covering their faces with their
handkerchiefs, poured out their grief
Put nnor. honest, blir-hearted fellow
that he was, could not restrain himself
but dropping his freckled face upon lus
hands, sobbed aloud while great tears
trickled through between his lingers
and dropped upon the floor.
Mr. and Mrs. La Vergno threw them
selves upon their knees beside their dy
ing chihl, and an agonized prayer burst
from the father's lips:
"0, (ioii: Spare my darling boy! Save
The preacher stood near by with
great tears springing from his sympa
thetic eyes and coursing down his
wrinkled cheeks; but hu refrained as
yet from offering any words of consola
tion until the first great burst of grief
Should have passed over.
AVDIie was sinking surely and rapidly,
and within fifteen minutes from tho
time tlie preacher announced to the
family that the child was dying, with a
last gasp and a slight quiver of the lit
tle frame, the freed little soul left the
suffering body and sped away to tho
outstretched arms of the Savior, and
Willie was dead.
When this fact became apparent to
him, the old preacher ainiouneed it in a
low voice, and kneeling beside tho
weeping group, ho poured out a prayer
for consolation for the bereaved ones,
and prayed that this affliction, though
Bore, might be sanctified to the good of
all, and that all might be so happy as
at last, when the scenes of earth shall
pass away, to join tlie spirit of the loved
one who had just departed. '
To bt Continued.
Tho Kcd Cum Chcwers of China.
Tho Anamcsii, about whom so much
Is being said nowadays, aro not an at
tractive people, but they do not wear
pigtails, and I can tolerate any other
vieo. They aro much liko tho Chinese
in npjienranco and in many of their
habits, following tho srtnio roligion and
living much in tho samo way. Tho
most striking thing about tliem is their
chewing habit. Instead of chewing
tobacco, tho men and tho women alike
universally chow a quid about tho sizo
of a filbert, mado up of Syri leaf, betel
nut, gamhier and chunam. This prep
aration is of a deep red color, and
imparts an exceedingly nasty appear
ance to tlie teeth, lips and gums. Tho
peoplo seem never to havo discovered
that this disirustinr iuico does not
onlributo to their -personal appear
anco. Somo dav tho revelation will
burst upon them with stunning effect
At least, I hope so. J udging from tho
reddoued ground whero Anamites havo
been expectorating ono would think
that this is a colony of consump
tives. Liko all tho other Orien
tals, tho Anamoso wear their hair
long, but keep it bound up in a top
knot. Perhaps I should except tiie
Japanoso in this sweeping statement,
for tho revolution in tho matter of
toilet which tho last docado has
wrought in Japan almost places tho
peoplo there on a piano with Occiden
tals in this as well as many other re
spects. The apparelling of tho peo
ple is, in keeping with tho climate,
quite simple. The Anamoso whom I
have seen in full dress wore cloths
around their heads after a semi-turban
fashion, and usually an elaborate high
comb. Those cloths wero dyed somo
brilliant huo, usually bluo or red, but '
noticed in every caso that ono corner
was left unstained by the dyeing liquid,
so as to show to best advanlago tho
original color and tho texture of tho
fabric. The shoes worn aro hcclless
wooden affairs, that turn up in front
and terminate in a long curved and
pointed toe. Tho peoplo aro slender,
having high cheek bones, homely feat
ures and are of a coppery color. Cor.

Engraved cards aro tho rule. The
icript is very delicato for ladies' cards,
which are of generous sizo, and cut
nearly square. Cards for married ladies
are longer than those used by single la
dies, and etiquette requires that a
daughter ovor 16 shall havo her name
on her mother's card until sho is 20
years of ago, at which time sho can
use a card of hor own. Cards bearing
the name of husband and wife aro nec
essarily largo. This fashion of card is
only used in paying bridal calls and
during tho first year of marriage; at all
other times the husband and wife uso
separate visiting cards. Cards for gen
tlemen are narrow and rather short.
The script is round, and has a much
heavier look than the hairline letters on
ladies' cards. All kinds of invitations
are written on clear whito paper, ex
cept silver and golden wedding cards.
Tho former has tho script in silver and
blue tinted cards; tho latter has tho
cards of a pinkish whito and golden
letters. ' For other wedding invitations
there is but little variety. In tho an
nouncement of a private marriage tho
cards are sent out by tho parents of
the bride; the note-sheet with lettering
is in shaded script. Square cards are
used when the couple issue the Invita
tions, If preferred, a separate card
with the lady's namo on can bo used.
The future residence is notod on tho
lower left corner, and on tho right low
er corner are Btated tho reception days.
Afternoon reooption-cards or note
shoots are also handsomely engraved
in script When cards aro usod they
aro of the square shape, with tho name
and address. Tho reception days aro
written in the left hand corner, and
either above or below this tho hour is
notod, for example: "Tea at 5 o'clock."
Dinner invitation cards are partly in
script, neatly engraved. Tho guest's
name Is written by tho hostoss, a pret

Cancer Tor Fourteen Years.
Spartanburg. S. C. March 14, 1884.
I have for 14 years been asuffororf r-im a running
sore on my face that eveiybody railed a Canceb. t
havens d ovo 8 1:0 worth of medicine and found
no relief. About four months ago I bought one
bottle ol S ift's H llic from Dr. H. E. lleiultsh,
and since have bought five othe s, have taken it,
and they have otiiiEB mk sound and welll My face
Is us free from a so e as anybody's, and my health
is perfectly rotored. I feel like forty years had
been lifted off my head
Mr. B. F. Burns, llope, Ark., says, nndor date of
Jan. 'ii lfW4: "I havo takeu flvo bottles of Swift'e
Specific fora sore on my temple salrt to be a can
cer. I havo been wonderfully benefited and will
loon be a well man."
Mr W. It. Uobls iu, Davishoro, Oa.. writes, un
der date of January 3, lt8l: I am getting on finely
the nl'-er is gradually healing I feel that Swift's
Specific will cure the horrible cincer which has
been feeding on me for over Jl y. a i."
Mr. W. II. Oilbert, Albany, Oa., says:
"A genileman named Mo re near this city had
an eating cancer on his lace, which had eaten away
his nose and his nuderlip, and bad emended np
until it had nearly reached his eyo. The cancer
was eating his gums and had rendered his teeth so
Ions that he thought ihey mlizht at any time drop
out. Ho has beoil takinp Swift's Specific ahout
three m nths, and its effect has been wonderful.
It has driven t he poison frum bis system, the can
cer has healed e really, his teeth linv.i become
stroi'g again, and he thinks he has been rescued
from an awful death, Ho is the mest enthusiastic
man I ever saw."
