"To-diiy 1 elosc my diary. Twenty
six years im to day 1 undertook to keep

n promise ol more. I owned a house
conifortuhlc enough for frugal young
ieople to begin life in. We were spared
house rent, therefore, nnd our expenses
have never included this item. Helm
SKvtivcly, I sec that we have brought
up four 'children in comparatively easy
circumstances. My health hasbeciigood
and inv earnings have been constantly

we still tiwn the homestead, without

It is related that one dreamy, languor
ous night in autumn Mrs. W. K. Vauiler
bill gave a dinner. I'pon the right of
his hostess sat Ward McAllister. Mis
Napoleonic brow, uilnrmd with n single
hisracli tress, was daikiied by grave
thoughts, which gave to his noble feat
ures, in the soft light of the lamps, a sad
strained look, rinally. breaking his rev

mind I should like to sav.
"Then say it," rejoined his hostess.
"I do not wish to offend you, don't

"You know that I am an authority 011
how to set a table, don't you sec, nnd
candles, not lamps, should Ik- there," he
ejaculated, pointing his taper linger at
an ollemluig lamp 01 exquisite sii.uk-.
His hostess smiled, but said nothing.
Alter a pause, he continued : "There is
just one other thing, Mrs. Vamlcrbill."
"Yes, ami pray, what is that ?"
"Well, now, f don't want tu offend."
"You cannot offend," Mrs. Willie K
replied, the words sounding like bram
"I wns wondering, don't you see, how
vou, being so rich, don't you know, could
keep such a poor chef, don't you see."
"You will not lie troubled 1111 that score

A beggar, who was making his way

was stopped by a foot-pad, who de
manded his wealth, The licggur soon
gave him a true understanding of how
matters stood, anrj the loot-pad cried
out in his sorrow, "Alas! but I have
liccn defrauded of inv rights!" "How
so?" "Why, the traveller with a lilt

A SPECTUF, HKLMSMAN.
In tlio siimini't' of IHil'.i the ship Vul
mm, nndrr Ihn coiiiinaiid of ('apt. Isimo
J'jiiusoii, was on lior hniiimvnril bound
piissiign from I bo Indifs with half n
cargo of tun, and she stopped lit Cnpo
Negro, 011 the coast of Ili uguei, after a
lot of ivory to make np her loud. Hav
ing gone on shore ut the Capo the
captain learned from thu native con
trai tor that hu would Imve to go some
fifteen miles up the Cauiiiliiil's river, 11s
the elephant hunters had all thu boats
further up in the country, so that con
sequently they had not been enabled to
bring thu ivory down.
I'npt. Johnson was siiiiu-wU.it disap
pointed at this cattsB for delay, but with
out waiting to lind Useless fault be lit"
t -i n 1 it K-el to man his own boats and pro
ceed at once up tlio river. It required
four trips to bring all thu ivory down,
but as they had opportunity to take ad
vantage of thu slight tides the tnk was
accomplished in four days. On the last
trip the captain went himself, leaving
tlie lirst 11111I0 in charge of the ship, innl
011 arriving at the small village where
the ivory was stored he was not a
little surprised to lind that nearly all the
niiserablo huts were deserted. Several
times dipt. Johnson inquired tin-meaning
of this, but thu natives were 1 ilher
iiiiablu or unwilling to give any plain
answer, mid it was not until the last lot
of tusks bail been conveyed lo the boats
innl the natives had been rennmerateil
fur their labor that the least clew 1011M
he obtained Hstotlie cause of tliisstrange
desertion, anil then for the lirst time the
captain received the startling intelli
gence that the cholera was sweeping
down tlio river!
As soon as this fact beciiinu known to
the si'iuneti they wildly huddled into
their bouts, us though the fearful death
angel was at their heels, and silently,
yet with powerful strokes, they pulled
down the fatal streiim. At length they
reaehed their ship, and though they
breathed somewhat lmue freely as they
tmil their own deck, yet each t-oiuite-naneo
bore the stamp uf thi-p fear. The
ivory was soon got 011 board, and with
all haste thu old Vulcan wa got under
way. It was. nearly night when Un
ship got off, niel with a good breeze
Irom tbo northward and ea.-tward she
slood well 011 hercour.-,u. llii the next
morning, shortly niter breakfast, ami
while the crew- had begun lo think that
they had 110 occasion for further fear, a
young man named Walter Audisnii was
taken suddenly sick.
Young Addison was tlio favorite liotli
of thu ullicers and t!iu crew, and as il
was reported that hu was thus id a gen
eral cniisteriialiou seized upon all hands.
The young inan felt nt lirst a giddiness
mid a sickly chill, and in the coiiisu ol
two hours In-sank into an alarming de
bility, the coituteiia.ice ass, lining a
deadly paleness und his skin Ix-ariii;; nil
the appearance of a corpse. . 1'uor Addi
son suffered till ie sin, and then the
startling announcement went thruugh
the ship that lie was dead.
This was thu tir-st, but who should be
the next'r A panic had seized upon 1 ho
men; the cholera was Willi them, and
iioiiu dared remove, tiiu form of their
ileitd shipmate from his U rth. Night
npproaelitsl, and with it came tin almost
dead calm, but thu corp-o soil remained
in the foicastle, nor did the lu.-ii dare to
go thither. The captain urged that the
longer presciieu of thu body would breed
inure dangerous contagion, but, tin- only
answer he received was a mournful
slinks of thu heads alsmt him.
At length, finding thai ail arguments
were useless, he turned to his uiatu and
asked him if he Would ussist himself in
throwing the body of the dead man over
board. The mate at lirst In-Minted, but
in aiuoiueiil be siguiiied liiscnus-til,niiil
together himself uiul the cnpiaui went
down into the forecastlu. 'l'lieydarsl
not remain long enough with thu corpse
to sew it up, nor even to attac h to it a
sinking wciht, but throwing over it a
single blanket, they managed to get it
uhui deck and lay it across l tic- bul
wark of the stnrlHiarJ Imw. A moment
dipt. Johnson hesitated -he opened his
lips, breathed a prayer for the soul of
thu departed, and then, while a shudder
ran over his frame, be let tau cold form
of young Waller Addison slid.- into the
lilac wiinr! Instiueiively be eat his
eyes over the side lis thu deed Wits dune,
and by the pale phosphorescent light h(
could just see the cnipso' sink, then rise

The first watch had liecii set. hut the
nlher watch dared not go below, and

boat they sought thu resisu which lin y
feared to seek where, I heir companion
had died: but each seemed tu tear his
m-iglilHir, for tiouu knew where the con
tagioii might be. At II o'clock the
slight breathings of the air, which
hiH-nied for the last few hours lo have
hud no sol tied Hiint, began to gather
moro force Irnui the unriliwaid ami
westward, and ere long n good fresh
breeze lllled thesliip'si aiivasand started
her through the water. The wind con
tinued to increase, and Is-foro midnight
all hands weru called to take in thu to
giillinitsails. At 11 o'clock tho mid
watch was set, and nil hands weru for a
few moments brought In contact with
each other. No further symptoms of
the dreaded M-stilenci) had apis-arcd, and
they liegan to taku hoiu.
It was half past 13 o'chs k. Ar, old

weru either In the gangway or else for

yet steady, and the old ship wns close
hauled tiH nt it, lying snmu two points
off from her truccoiirsc. The ship's Is-ll
was sussudeil over tlie bintuiele, and
old Miipicii reached over and struck the
first half hour lifter midnight, lie had
just resumed his position, and was gii
lug. intently at the compass, when he
felt A hainl laid upon his shoulder, und
on turning nroiind he beheld by the
struggling Is-iiinsof the binnacle lamp
the pale, deathly features of Walter Ad
dison! For an Instant tho old sailor remained
rooted to the spot, and then, uttering n
sharp cry of fear, he let go the wheel mid
darted forward. In a moment the ship
Is-gan to fall off, mid as she brought the
Hat snrfacnof broad canvas to the wind

Jiahi specter that had frightened tho
helmsman from his post caught the

Hhippcii'a cry had started all hands
from their llstlcsancs, for they thought
the cholera fiend hnd assailed him. but
from his broken ejaculations they soon
learned what was tho matter, and In a
Issly they crowded aft, and by tho dim
light from tho binnacle, they taw the
specter helmsman! Every knee trembleu,
and every tongue clove to the roof of its
mouth. None dared to approach him,
nor did any move, back. At this juncture
the captain enmu on deck. His eye
caught tho corpse like form that still
hchl the wheel, and ho, too, was riveted
to tho spot where ho stood.
"Shipmates, relievo 1110 from bore, or
I shall faint. 1 nm cold and weak!" at
length can 10 from tho lips of the seem
ing specter, in fitint, agonized tones.
dipt. Johnson hesitated 1111 instant,
and then ho rushed forward and laid his
hand upon thu trembling form before
him. It was cold and wet, hut he knuw
that it was a living man. One after an
other of thu men gathered about, and
before long till knew that young Walter
Addison still lived. The captain had
him conveyed to tho cabin, where every
thing that could bo thought of was ad
ministered for his comfort, ami it wns
not long bofnru he sufficiently ruvived to
give 1111 account of his strange cscitie
from the cold, deep grave to which he
had been consigned.
Il seemed that young Addison hnd
fallen into that deathlike lethargy which
Hot infrequently results from sudden
cholera, and which, us all who arc ac
quainted witli tho disease must be aware,
so nearly resembles death that even the
best physicians have been deceived by
it. The Hiidih-ii immersion in thu cold
water had revived his dormant senses,
and as thu ship had but a slight motion
at thu time hu came to a partial realiza
tion of his situation before she had
passed him, and by considerable exer
tion he inaiiiigi'd to get held of the rud

Farmer Crane, who lives over on the
town line, has some very unique meth
ods of examining tliu men who apply to
him from time to time for work.
One evening a tall, big IkiiumI fellow,
in his shirt slit-ves. asked Crane if he had
any work to do.
"1 don't know,'- said the farmer.
"Can you tend horses'?"
"Y'es. indeed). I've worked about
horses all my life."
"Couie nrotiiid In-ru to thu pump,'' said
Crane, and he led the way to a com men
sucker rod pump near the barn. Going
inside hu got it long, narrow pitcher, ami
placed it under the spout. There,"
said he, "pump that pitcher full of wa
ter." The big Isilied fellow Complied,
carefully pumping thu teller full with
out spilling n single drop.
"That'll do," said Crane, "tin inside
and get ready for stipin r: I'll give you a
job in the morning."
About a Week later the big Ismed fel
low asked Crane what pumping the
pitcher full of water bad to do with hi
getting a job.
"Weil, ill jttst tell yon. This is
mighty dry wcat nor. and water is get
ting M in ce. Ynu must have I bought

If) oil badii I puuiK'd hard the water
would have 1mi-ii spilled, and if you had
piuuH-il too hard the water would haw
gone over tin-pitcher. Now, thu way I
a IX lie is this: If a fellow doll I pump
hard enough be won't work hard
enough. If lie pumps bsi h.inl he'll
work f.st liaril for a little while, nnd I
don't want cither kind tu work for me.
