DR. JACK'S VALENTINE.
There were half a dozen of the girls
together pretty creatures in the very
first season of their long dresses the
eldest not quite sirteen. They were all
braids and puffy carls oil loops and
ribbons all smiles and dimples. It was
Saturday before Valentine's day, in
certain year of grace, of which I will not
give yon the precise date, bnt less than
ten years ago and more tnan nve.
"What are yon thinking about, Nell V
Bertha asked, sitting on the arm of
"These valentines," Nelly answered
" Well, surely they need not make you
sober they are absurd enough."
" Yes, and it's because they are so ab
surd that they make me sober. I was
just wondering why we couldn't just as
well have done something to help some
body think to do some good.
" Nelly's heroic 1" cried Kate Greene,
flippantly : " Miss Hunt is a moral re
Nelly blushed from her pretty cars to
the roots of her sunny hair, but her eyes
' shone clear, and there was a ring oi ear
nestness in her voice as she answered :
"Xou can laugh if you will, but I
mean what I say, and I'm going to try an

and I II send it
Her task was harder than she had im
agined. It is only the old, perhaps, who
are sage in counsel by nature. At any
rate, to give good advice did not come
naturally to pretty Nelly, Hut she had
an idea of what she wanted to Bay, and
at last she got it said, bhe had written
and re-written it, and finally concluded
that she could do no better, and then
copied it out into her neatest handwrit
ing before she called the others. It was
a little stiff, to be sure, and preachy and
high flown, but it sounded like a lofty
effort and a complete success to the listen
ing girls. This is what it said :
My VaiiEotine : You will have plenty of
fine speeches and praises and perhaps of
fun and fancy from others ; so I shall not
give you those I would have but one
interest in you, namely : that you be the
best boy and the best man which it is
possible for yon become. If you are
selfish, if you are indolent, u you are

own society until you have sunk so low
that yon don't know the difference be
tween goodness and badness, iiut if you

honor and faithful worker, you will do
good deeds and live a happy life and be

little quiver about her mouth which Ber
tha understood : bnt she read it with
firm voice and careful, deliberate accent.
Then she said when she had finished,
" I shall burn up all the rest of my val
entines and send only this one : for H is
what I mean in earnest, and, as old Aunty
Smoke says,. " If it don't do no good, it
can t do no harm.
"To whom shall yon send it, dear?'
Bertha asked gently, a little subdued by
Nelly's epistolary success.
" I hadn't made up my mind." Nelly
answered thoughtfully ; " they all need

Greene, "He boards with us, and he

on Nelly Hunt's cheeks. Had she had

- On the 15th the girls were altogether
at school comparing; notes and exchang

Nelly aside, while they walked up and
down the hall together, their arms around
each other, as girls will :

Nelly's pretty cheeks glowed and her
eyes shown like stars, but she asked no

Nelly Hunt would have forgotten
his very existence but for that valentine
which she could not forget She used to
blush as she grew older to think how
bumptious it was, as she used to call
it to herself.
Nellv was twentv when Jack Greene
came back to Chester again. And now
he came a physician, just through his
studies and anxious to build up a prac
tice. Soon his fame grew. His patients
were among the poor at first, and he
cured them. And then richer people
heard of it and sent for him. But, while
he took all the patients that came to him,
he never gave up the practice among
those who most needed him. His
praise was in all their mouths. There
had never been any doctor like this
Nelly was Miss Hunt now for Bertha
had gone away from her into the next
country and Nelly's grief had made her
gentle heart yet more gentle and her
helpful spirit yet more helpful.
Toward night one summor day, she
had gone to see an old woman who had
been her nurse once, and had found her
very ill quite too ill to be left alone and
certainly in need of a physician. So
Nelly tore a leaf from her memorandum
book and wrote on it a few lines, begging
Dr. Greene to come at once, and then
called to the first passer-by, and entreat
ed him to take it to the doctor.
It was scarcely half an hour before Dr.
Greene came in quietly and gravely. He
attended to his patient with that careful
consideration which made all those poor
souls whom he visited adore him. Then
he turned to Nelly.
"Who will stay with her to-night ?"
he asked; " for indeed she hardly ought
to be left alone."
"I shall stay," was the quiet answer.
'-'Then come to the door with me.
please, and let me give you your direc
tions." Nellie followed and stood there in the
soft summer dusk a pretty creature
with the wild rose flush dawning in her
cheeks and a new light kindling in her
blue eyes. She listened carefully to all
his injunctions, and then turned as if to
go. But he put out a hand to detain
'How very much I owe to you, he

lie looked at her with a smile in his
eyes, bnt with a face that preserved all
its respectful gravity. He took his red
leather case out of his pocket, and from
the case he took the very old valentine
which ineUUe remembered so welU Then
he ptoduced the brief notes she had
written that afternoon, and still there
was light enough left in the. day to see
them by as she held them side by side.
"Your hand has matured somewhat
since this valentine was written," he re
marked, quietly; "but some of these let
ters I should know anywhere. No one
could deceive me.
'I did not suppose you had kept that
foolish thing," Nellie said, with a piti
ful little quiver in her voice, as if she
was just on the point of bursting into
tears. "I am so ashamed."
Dr. Jack looked at her a moment, as
she stood there in the waning light, a
lovely, graceful girl, from whom any
man might be proud to win even a pass
ing interest. So this was the woman
the thought of whom he had carried in
his heart for years. If he had ever done
any good thing, he was paid for it in
the satisfaction of that hour.
'Are you sorry," he asked slowly.

best self? Those words of yours were
to me like the voice of my inmost soul.
Since then this paper has never left me,
nor have I ever ceased to strive to be
worthy of the esteem of my unknown

Or do you grudge me the pleasure of
No, x m not sorry, nor do 1 grudge
you anything; but it was a girl's freak
and I am not worthy of so much praise
'It was a good girl's good intention,"
he said almost solemnly. "Let us be
thankful that it succeeded."
One night the doctor had left his horse
at home, and he and Nelly walked away
together. They talked about the linger
ing sunset and the soft south wind, and
even the old woman for Nelly, woman
like, was struggling desperately to keep
Dr. Jack from saying what she desper
ately wanted to hear. But at last
came a half-blunt, half-awakened
speech, yet with Dr. Jack's honest
heart in it:
"I've lived all these years just to
earn your esteem, and now I find that
don't care a thing about that unless 1 can
win your love also.
I think Nelly's answer must have sat-

LOST FOR A LIFETIME.
Some thirty years ago John Quincy
Adams attracted considerable attention
in Congress by a strong speech in favor
of a bill introduced by B. A. Bidlack of
Pennsylvania, 'which provided that one
mile square of the land then occupied
by the Miami Indians, embracing the
house and improvements of Frances
Slocum, should be granted in fee to her
and her heirs forever. The bill became
alar, and she occupied this special re
serve until her death in the spring
The history of this woman was re
markable. She was the daughter of
yuafcer, who lived in the Wyoming val
ley during the revolution. Several
months after the massacre of 1778 she
was caught up by a parly of marauding
Delaware Indians who got off before any
attempt could be made to rescue her.
She was five vears old at this time.
About a month later her father was shot
dead by the Tnrliarm while at work in
field near his bouse. Knowing that he
was gone to his eternal rest, the widow,
in time, became reconciled to her loss.
but she could never forget her child, the
last sight of which was when she was
the arms of a brawny Indian, struggling
and calling piteoualy upon her parent
come to her help.
The sons of Mrs. Slocum be
came prosperous business men, and
after the close of the revolution they
used every effort to recover their lost
sister. In 1784 two of them visited
Niagara, where a large number of In
dians wore gathered, made diligent in
quiries, and offered liberal rewards
any information of her. They prose
cuted the search for several weeks, and
returned home with the impression that
she was dead.
The mother, however, could not
persuaded that such was the case, and
four years later the Slocums spent sev
eral months in the West among, the In
dian agents and traders, publicly offering
$500 to any one who woul 1 give any
authentic information of t!i death
their sister, but their success was
better than before. A similar expedi
tion was undertaken in 1797 by four
the brothers, with the same result
in the Boss case, the search brought
numbers of stolen children to light, but
none was the one particularly wanted.
Mrs. Slocum never lost faith in her
daughter's existence. She believed she
was somewhere waiting to be clasped
her arms, and she continued the search
with scarcely any intermission until
1807, when she died, her children prom
ising her to use every effort to learn
what had become of the little one ab
ducted nearly thirty years before. They
faithfully carried out this pledge, and in
1826 made a long and expensive journey
to Upper Sandusky to see a woman who,
there was no reason to hope, was the
one for whom they were searching.
Disappointed again, they finally came to
the conclusion that Frances was dead,
and the search ended.
In the month of January, 1835, Col.
George W. Ewing, a gentleman con
nected with the public service among
the Indians, and able to speak several of
their languages was benighted near an
Indian town known as The Deaf Man s
Village, on a branch of the Wabash.
He applied for lodging, and was hospit
ably received at a respectable dwelling.
Me was fatigued and unwell, and after
eating lay down upon some skins in the
corner. The household consisted ot a
venerable woman and a number of chil
dren, all of whom treated her with the
greatest deference, and who departed to
their own rooms.
As Col. Ewing lay upon his pallet he
watched the old lady moving about, and
noticed particularly the color of her skin
and hair. The result of the scrutiny
convinced him that she was a white wo
man, and he opened a conversation with
her. She admitted that his suspicions
were correct She said that she was
stolen by the Tnrliana when a very small
child, and she had carefully concealed
that fact from those of her own race
whom alio met for fear that her relatives
would come and take her away. She
was now so old that she felt she could
not live much longer, and if any of her
friends were living she would be glad to
see them. In short, she was Frances
Slocum, and she remembered distinctly
the name of her father, though her own
given name was forgotten.
CoL Ewing was so impressed with her
narrative that he addressed a long letter,
giving the particulars, to the Postmaster
at Lancaster, Pa. He had never
heard of the Slocums, but he judged
from certain answers mode by the old
lady that her home was somewhere in
The letter reached its destination, but
when the Postmaster came to read it he
concluded it a hoax and flung it aside,
among some waste papers, where it lay
for two years. At the end of that time
the Postmaster died, and his widow in
overhauling his effects, came upon CoL
E wing's letter. She had never heard the
name of Slocum, but thinking there was
something in it, she sent the misssive to
the Lancaster Intelligencer, a copy of
which, containing the letter, fell into
the hands of Bev. Samuel Bowman,
who was intimately acquainted with the
Slocum family, and be mailed a paper to
her brother, who lived in WiiKesbarre.
The reception of the letter threw the
whole community into excitement, there
being not a particle of doubt as to the
identity of Frances. As two years had
passed since the letter was written, and
as it stated that the old lady at that time
was under a premonition of death, an in
3niry was addressed to CoL Ewing, by
ohn J. Slocum, the nephew of Frances.
A prompt reply, dated at Logan sport,
came to hand saying that the old lady
was soil alive, and would be glad to see
them. The letter contained minute di
rections as to the course they were to
take to reach her. Arrangements were
at once made to do so. Mr. Isaac blo
cum and Mrs. Mary Town, brother and
sister of rraaces, resided in Ohio, but
not in the same neighborhood. Joseph
Slocum, of Wilkesbarre, another brother,
started in his carriage, taking his sister,
while Isaac went in advance, it being
agreed that they should meet at Deaf
Man's village. Isaac reached the place
ahead of the others, and accompanied by
an interpreter, made a coll upon the
lady, who received them pleasantly, but
evidently with suspicion. The brother
found her to all appearances a perfect
Indian, but he had fixed in his mind an
unerring test of her identity. Previous
to being carried away, fifty-nine years
before, her brother ibenezer had
crushed the forefinger of her left hand
with a hammer. Taking hold of her
hand and raising it, he saw the disfig
urement "What caused that?" he
added. "My brother struck it with a
hammer a long time ago," was the an
swer. Ho remained some time in conversa
tion, but the woman did not seem at
ease, and he returned to the village of
Peru to await the arrival of his brother
and sister. When they camo the three
made them another visit She treated
them with the same kindness as befere,
but was stoical and unmoved, and when
she saw tears in their eyes and every in
dication of a coming " scene " she looked
anything but pleased. The only time
she showed any signs of emotion was
when she was asked her name. She re
plied that it was forgotten. " Is it
Frances ?" Her dusky features sudden
ly lit up and she nodded her head.
" Yes, yes, Franca, Franca." The visit
was prolonged for several days, and
some months later was repeated, some
of the nieces and nephews joining the

taken to oandusky, where she stayed un

moved to Niagara, where she lived a
year. In accordance with the nomadic
habits of her people, her home was con
tinually changed. Her greatest dread
was of being discovered by her relatives
and taken away, and there is' no doubt
that when the weary mother was hunting
up and down the earth, she more than
once came within hail of her lost child,

lifter a time she seemed to form quite
an attachment for her brothers, who, of
course, were old men, and she offered
them half her land if they would live
near her. They in turn pressed her to
join them further East, but she thanked
them and declined. She was an Indian
in everything except birth, and such she
lived and died.
The Jewish Wachers.
Among the Hebrews of New York
there is a class of men and women abont
whom the general public know little or
nothing, viz: those who watch and pre
pare the dead for burial. As an Israel
ite, according to Jewish law, is not al
lowed to touch the body of a deceased
relative, it is apparent how necessary to
the Jewish community are those people
engagea in tne peculiar Business of car
ing for the dead. The technical Hebrew
term for them is "wachers," and their
number is comparatively small; they are
kept busy almost constantly, very often
not getting any regular rest for a week
or more at a time, their powers of en
durance in withstanding the attacks of
the drowsy god for days together being
really wonderful. As a general thing,
these wachers are pious, orthodox Israel
ites; but thero are some among them
who are rongh and coarse, brutal and
blasphemous. Even the most devout
are so hardened to their work that they
pass their nights and days beside the
dead in a gay and festivo manner; that
is, boing possessed, despite the horrible
nature of their employment, of good.
hearty appetites; they kill time by eat
ing, arinlung, and smoking, early, late,
and often, and by reading and convers
ing on both humorous and serious sub
jects. Some of them are so very relig
ious tliat they invariably wash their
hands and pray before eating, and will
not partake of food which is cooked

these contracts approached maturity there was
a general desire on the part of the short sellers
to provide for them, the active competition be

An elegant edition of the Scriptures
was sent to a Washington paper for no

How Is This for Pedigree?
A very searching investicration was
carried on, a few years ago, in the north
of England, by two families who were

me strife was great between them ;
each one determined to look back into
antiquities farther than the other.
One of the families, whose name was
Spencer, employed an artist to paint a
historic scene representing the building
of the ark, and the loading up of the
ship by Noah and his sons with its multi
farious and various cargo.
Un the gang-plank leading to the deck
of the ark two men were seen rolling up
a large box, on one side of which was
painted in large letters, 'Belies, in

In describing the exploits of one of
their ancestors, at a very early day, who
was represented as a man ot authority,
this remarkable passage occurs :
"During this year Adam and Eve
were driven out of Jfaradise.
Swearing at Beginning of the Revo
At least two men swore at the begin
ning of the revolution.- Ono of theso
was Capt. Brown, who said, when his
comrado, Capt. Davis, was killed at Con
cord by the British, " Q d d n them,
thev are firing balls. Fire ! men, fire I"
The other was Gen. Putnam, who led
the Connecticut troops at Bunker Hill,
and indulged in so much profanity when
the old Continentals retreated under tne
fire of the enemy's artillery at the end of
the fight that he apologized to his church
after the war, on the ground that " it
was almost enough to make an angel
swear to see the cowards refuse to secure
a victory so nearly won." He did the
hrave men injustice, but the recording
angel, no doubt, blotted out his oaths
with a flood of tears, as it did in the case
of Uncle Toby. These two instances arc
the only ones known of profanity in the
early days of the Revolution. As the
war progressed profanity becamo more
frequent, as with lien. i.tiian Alien
when he summoned the astounded
British General to surrender in the name
of Almighty God and the Continental
When an antidote or remedy for any

to suppose that it must. merit the popu

and favorably known as the safest and
most reliable remedial agent for the cure
of liver, Kidney, Bladder and Glandular
Diseases, Mental and Jt'liymcal ueBinty,
and all complaints emanating from a
corrupt state 01 tne diooci, etc., are in
great demand. So satisfied are we of
the intrinsic worth of this medicine, that
we do not hesitate to notice it in our
columns. It is well to mention that this
medicine is compounded of roots, herbs
and flowers of California, and has no
fiery material or alcohol used in its
preparation. Wo can add no better
eulogium than the fact tnat we use it con
stantly in our own family, and each mem
ber thereof partakes of it, when neces
sary, according to directions. New York
It is estimated that if the English

increase to 3,000,000. A journey from
London to Paris will then take but five

voyago taken out. The boring is to
begin simultaneously in France and
England, from the bottom of two wells,
