WHEN I WENT FISHING WITH DAD.
BY M. E. VANDYNE.
Whfn I iu m boy I'm an old minnow;
Look t the lino aerose my brow ;
Old Time has farrowed them there.
If T beck is bent and my eves are dim ;
lie baa placed hie finger on everr limb,
And pulled ont most of my hair.
But if life has reached December,
Fm not too old to remember
When I went fishing with dad.
We would each of na shoulder hie nut of the load,
And Joyfully atart along the road
Bat dad 'a was toe heaviest share.
Oat sf the village aboat ft mile, -Over
ft meadow, across a stile,
and then we were almost there.
Dear old brook, I can see it still,
The mossy bank and the old gray mill,
Where I went fishing with dad.
We woold wander aboat for a little space
To find the cosiest, shadiest place,
Before we went to work.
Then dsd would arrange his rod and line.
And tell me Just how to manage mine
When the fish began to jerk.
If I only eoald feel ae I used to then I
If the days could only come back again,
When X went fishing with dsd !
We armed oar hooks with the wriggling bait,
Then seated ourselves on the bank to wsit
And see tf the fish would bite.
Sometimes they would only take a look.
As if they thought there might be a book,
Rut rsynldnt be certain Quite.
There was one old perch that I need to think
Woold always Krox at ue line ana wins,
Wjhen I went Ashing with dad.
And so we fished tilt the son was high.
And the morning hours were all gone by,
And the village clock strnck one.
I am hungry, Jim," then dad would aay ;
Let's give the fishes a chance to plsy
Until our lunch is done."
Oh, nothing has ever tasted so sweet
As the big sandwiches I need to eat
When I went fishing with dad.
Then dad and I would lie on the gran
And wait for the beat of the day to pass ;
How happy 1 used to feell
And what wonderful stories he would tell
To the esger boy that he loved so well,
After our mid-day meal !
And how I would nestle close to his side
To hear of the world so big and wide.
When I went fishing with dad.
Fori eagerly listened to every word;
And men among men of whom 1 heard
How I longed to play a part 1
What wonderful dreams of the future came,
What visions of wealth said an honored name,
To fill my boyish hesrtl
There is no dresm like the old dresm.
There is no stream like the old stream
Where I went fishing with dad. ,
Then back again to our sport we'd go.
And fish till the sunset's crimson glow
Lit up the dying day ;
Then dad would call to me, "Jim, well stop ;
The bssket is full to the very top ;
- It's time we were on our way.
There are no ways like the old ways,
There are no days like the old days
When I went fishing whh dad.
Then we took oar way through the meadow land,
And I clung so tight to his wrinkled hand,
As hsppy ss I could be.
And when the o.d house came in sight.
The smile on his old f see grew so bright
As he looked down at me.
And no one smiles as be used to smilo ;
And, oh, it seems such a long, long while
Since I went fishing with dad.
It is way, way back in the weary years
That with aching heart and falling tears
I watched dad go awsy.
Bis aged head lay on my breast
When the angels called him home to rest
He wss too old to stay.
And 1 dug a grave Tieath the very sod
That my boyish feet so often trod
WhenTwent fishing with dad.
The world has given me wealth and fame,
fulfilled my dreams of an honored name,
And now I am weak and old ;
The land is mine wherever I look ;
I can catch my fish with a silver hook ; s
But my days are almost told.
Uncheered by the love of child or wife,
I would spend the end of my lonely life
Where I went fishing with dad.
My Umbs are weary, my eyes sre dim ;
I shall tell them to lay me close by him
Whenever 1 come to die ;
And side by side, it will be my wish,
That there by the stream where they need to fish,
They will let the old men lie.
Close by him I would like to be.
Buried beneath the old oak-tree
Where I sat and fished with dad.
IN BUSINESS HOURS.

"Few heads can bear it in business

"Why do you say in business hours,
Mr. Clarksont" inquired the young
man, as he held the wine near bis hps.
"Because success in business requires
a clear head; and no head is as clear af

fore." ' Mr. Clarkson said this so gravely and
impressively that his companion was
struck by his manner, and felt that he
spoke from painful experience. He
stood irresolute for a moment, and then
set down the un tasted glass of wine.

There was a tone of satisfaction in Mr.

" Some men who go away from here this

things, said Howard,

to take up the work they in

think they will be as clear-headed as be

issues that demand their highest ability?
Will the wine they take be a help or
hindrance? I could tell you a story,"
added Mr. Clarkson, after a pause, "so
full of warning that its lesson would
hardly fail to impress you deeply. But
this is neither the time nor the place."

A shadow passed over Mr. Clarkson's
face. After a little silence he replied:
I know all this. And your father

was, you are poorer to-day by many

" Will yon tell me the whole story ?
" It is still fresh in my memory. It
seems an event of yesterday. I had an
engagement to meet your father after
the reception. The ijase superior cop
per mining fever was then at its height.
Your father was a cool, clear-headed
man, and generally kept aloof from
schemes of money making not connected
with legitimate trade. It so happened
that one of your restless, over sanguine
men. who ore always on the lookout for
some scheme try which money can be

had made a visit to the Ontonagon re
gion, and, in company with a county
surveyor prospected for a mine. Ac
cording to his representation they had
discovered one of the richest deposits in
tb.9 whole Lake Superior region, and
held the secret of its location. He had
come out East to organize a company;
and had yet only talked to a few capi
talists, who had arranged to meet him at
1 o'clock on the day I have referred to,
in order to got a full development of his
" Neither your father nor I felt much
interest in the matter. We had littlo
faith in mining speculations, having seen
more money lost in them than gained, by
a thousand per cent. But we had been
so strongly pressed to attend this meet
ing that we were constrained to be pres
"From the wedding reception, flushed
with wine we had each taken three or
four glasses, and our heads were not
very strong we went to this meeting to
hear about the marvellously rich deposit
of almost virgin copper discovered some
where on the range of the great Minne
sota conglomerate belt. Maps and
plans were spread before us; specimens
of copper were exhibited ; cost ol land,
and the particulars of working mines,
and the money needed for development
set forth in eloquent detail.
" I saw that your father, in whose face
was an unwonted glow, and in whose
eyes shone an unusual brightness, was
beooming much interested, and foremost
in making inquiries and getting at facts
and figures. His ordinary coolness and
reserve were gone. He had permitted
himself to come under the' magnetism
of the plausible individual who wished
to draw us into his schema of fortune
making, and was completely carried away
by his representations.
" I, too, saw golden visions, and when
your father said, ' Gentlemen, I mean to
go into this thing,' I was the first to re
spond, So do L Our example was in
fectious. We had the reputation of be
ing prudent, far-seeing men; and the
fact that we saw money in an undevel
oped copper mine had a strong influence
upon those present, none of whom had
the remotest suspicion that our judg
ment was obscured and our vision dis
torted by wine
" There were ten individuals present
at that meeting. Under your father's
lead and mine, the preliminary organi
zation of a joint stock company was
made, and a committee appointed to
procure a charter. The capital was to
be two hundred and fifty thousand dol
lars, divided into five thousand shares at
fifty dollars each, the money to be paid
in by installments as needed. As shown
bv full estimates and the reimlts accom
plished in leading mines, not fifty thous
and dollars would nave to be expended
before paying returns were obtained.
The stock would then rise to par, com
manding fifty dollars a share for ten
paid in. -
" Your father headed tho subscription,
putting his name down for two thousand
shares. His faith and example were
potent with me, and I followed with
thousand more. In a few minutes the
whole subscription was full, and we had
a compact organization of ten men, two
of whom, your father and I, held the
controlling influence ; our proportion of
shares being three-fifths of the whole
number. It was voted to pay in at once
two dollars a share, or ten thousand dol
lars, in order to make a cash payment on
the land, and to get funds for beginning
immediately the work of opening the
mines' The charter would come and the
company organization proceed in due
" I went away from that meeting feel
ing strangely. On going to my store,
remember sitting down at my desk and
resting my head between my hands, try
ing to think just where I was and what
had been doing. I remember saying to
myself as the excitement under which
had been laboring cooled down and my
brain got clearer, ' Have I been dream
ing or acting the fool?' I was doing
moderately profitable business that re
quired careful working. My capital,
while sufficient to ensure success, was
not large, and needed to be well cared
for and handled judiciously. I could
not take two thousand dollars away from
it without deranging my calculations and
limiting, in some degree, my operations.
And yet, I put down my name for
thousand shares of stock, at a par value
of fifty dollars each, and might be called
on to pay assessments to the full amount.
" I felt the cold sweat on my forehead.
I said to myself, What came over me
I muft have lost my senses 1' Then
flashed into my thoughts that the wine
drank at your sister's reception had been
the evil influence which led me astray

judgment. I was startled at the revela

" But there was no going back upon
what I had done. I had entered into
honorable contract, and could not, with
out loss of business standing, refuse

came to see me late in the afternoon
oik over the new mining enterprise.
saw that his fine enthusiasm was gone
and he did not fail to observe that in
to the copper product his mind
rested more upon the work that had
be done than on the splendid results
" He was not sure that the sanguine
individual who had led us into
scheme was the cool, reliablo man
needed for the management of our affairs
in the mining region. His culm, strong,
practical mind was going over the wholo
.ground in sober earnest ; and it
plain that the rosy hues which had
pleased our eyes a few hours before were
fading fast away.
"But he was not one to look back
after once putting his hands to any work.
He was sensitive and proud, and more
willing to face an enemy and dare a
than to acknowledge a mistake. Under
the influence of his unwonted enthu
siasm he had drawn a number of capi
talists and men of business into a mining
enterprise, and he felt pledged to
work of its success.

anxieties and disappointments he en

thirty thousand dollars out of my busi

forced to sell half of my stock at a loss

the balance at a crippling cost. But

From the apex of this fusticated cone
(at least two feet in diameter) eight huge
leaves sheer to the ground, like doors

leaves, which are joined at the top of
the trees at regular intervals, were about
eleven or twelve feet long, and shaped
very much like the leaves of an Ameri

concave surface was thickly set with
strong horny hooks like those upon the

thus limp and lifeless, dead green in

strength of oak fiber. The apex of the
cone was a round concave figure like

principles entirely new to aeronauts,
which the patentee conndcntiy Deiieves
have solved the knotty problem of
navigation. The body of tne machine

kinds of devices, wings and paadie

power. In operating the machuiery,tho
wings receive an upward and downward
motion, iu tho manner of tho wings of

the subject of air navigation for
years, and has tried various experiments
during that time, all of which failed
until he adopted his present plan. He
took on eagle for his model, and has con
structed his machine to imitate his pat

may be the fate of Mr. Dyer's patent he
himself has the most unshaken faith in

FINANCE AND TRADE.
Weekly Review of the Chicago Market.
The supply of money ooutinnes in excess of
the demand, there being but comparatively
little demand for favors. Speculators in grain

The grain markets attracted considerable
attention from speculatora and operators gen

their outstanding contracts, aud up to Saturday

never felt the heat, .because in nearly
these old sanctuaries, even in the vast
treasury house, the British Museum, in
order to secure perfect protection
against any sudden conflagration, there
is not only no nre by which to warm in
the winter, but the establishment is
closed at 4 o'clock, at that season, re
maining open later, of course, as the
days lengthen. The Doomsday Book,
np to 1696, was frequently earned, like
other records, to distant districts, but af
ter that date it was kept with the King s
seal at Westminster, in charge of the of
ficers of exchequer, and is now lodged
in the office of the King's remembrances
in tho exchequer. In this wonderful
collection yon find whole countries with

Perhaps it may have been just as well,
in the end, that our government has
permitted the navy to run down to al
most complete uselessness. The experi
ments now making in Europe in gunnery
are not at all encouraging to building
heavy armored vessels of war, since the
latest achievements of Krupp, the great
German grin-builder, soem to show that
with his seven-inch guns he can, ata dis
tance of half a mile, blow out of water
anything that can be put afloat, no mat
ter how heavily iron-clad. He con
structed a target of ten and a half inches
of iron, backed by seven feet of hard
timber, to which was again added six
and a half inches of iron plating, with
six feet of timber backing, finishing np
the target with an inch and a half of
steel plates. He placed four seven-inch
guns on a specially constructed carriage,
in position concentrically pointing to the
same spot almost on tho target. The
charge was a conical shell and seventy
five pounds of powder to1 each gun,
which were simultaneously fired by elec
tricity and tore the target all to pieces.
It seems impossible that a ship can be
built to float with sides fourteen and a
half feet thick ; and as not even that
thickness of iron, steel and wood com
bined can withstand modern guns, it ap
pears that an iron-clad navy would be
useless against such artillery.

In a brief period it has become widely knowa

"LEADING THRESHING HI CHINE."
GRAIN RAISERS REFUSE to submit
to the waetefnl and imperfect work of other
Threshers, when posted on the nut luperiority
of this one, for earing grain, a&Ting time, and
doins: fast, thrVroucch and economical work.
THRESHERMEN FIND IT highly advantamona to
run a machine that has no "Beaters," "Pickers,"
or M Apron, that handles Damn Grain, Long
Straw, Hcadinga, Flax, Timothy, Milieu and all
snch difficult rrain and seed, with ENTIRE
EASE AND EFFECTIVENESS. Cleans
to perfection ; sates the fanner his thresh bill
by extra savins of strmin ; makes no " Litter
in;" require, LESS THAN ONE-HALF the usual
Belts, Boxes, Journals, and Gears ; easier man.

to employ and wait for. erven .t adv. need
