LITTLE MOCCASINEO FEET.
Two litis moccasined feet I beard
Heard while I reveled in fancies quaint
Treadini; unsteadily through the room.
Pattering soft in the twilight's gloom
There by the door. As the curtain stirred.
Soft came the sound of her laughter faint
Clear as the ring of the tinkling chain.
Sweet at the nightingale's sweetest strain.
Two little niorcasineri feet that brought
Thoug its I'd been seeking an hour or more;
Seeking in vain, for my fickle pill.
True to her sex, would her gifts refuse.
Giving the caller the smile she sought.
Kissing lier flower ll o'er and o'er.
Up to my lap then 1 lifted her
Muse vho iiixiired without demur.
Wonderful moccasined feet were they,
Quitlinj; me Into Klysinn nYlils;
Wonderi ul, too, was that baby hand.
Leading me thither to fuiry land;
Poteut as well were her eyes blue gray.
Casting i be spell that a sireu wields.
Where was there ever a muse like this,
Briuging a charm with her ttuby kiss?
Two litll . moccasined feet ah, me!
Where will they stray In the cumiii yearsf
Shall it t e into a time less fair,
Marrimj her life with a cloud of care?
God give her strength for what is to be.
Robbing her sky of its rain of tears.
Leading the trend of her simple life
Far f ron the world and its vulgar strife.
-Prauklyu W. Lee.
JSn New Sentiment.
A numlxM- of Rcnjnmin Franklin's letters,
not includml iu the old collection of his writ
ings, have recently tieon brought to liht,
ami are printed in a new edition of his works.
One of th.m, addressed from London the
13th of February, 17tS, to Mr. Thomas Cush
ng, gives videnre of tlie interesting fact
that American syinjiithy with Ireland was
active as far Jiack as the times of our colonial
history, years before the iKvliiratmn of Inde
pendence. In the letter referred to Franklin
gives his Ai lericnn rnnvsiMniltnt an account
of his visit to Ireland, referring to the vari
ous features of English policy in that coun
try, and Hit n he writes tlse words concern
ing his hope of political co-ojieratiiin between
America an llreland:
'Before leaving Ireland I must montiot.
that, being desirous of seeing the principal
liatriots tin re, 1 stiivod until the oening of
their parliament. I found them disposed to
l friends o:' America, in which I endeavored
to confirm - hem, with the expectation that
our growinp weight might in time be thrown
into the scale, and by joining our interests
with others, a more equitable treatment from
this nation (England) might be obtained for
them as wol as for us. There are many brave
spirits among them. Their parlia
ment niuki a good, respectable figtiro, w ith
a number of giKnl spenkcrs iu both parties,
and able wen of business. "
Tho Sugr Tree of India.
Every par- of the tree, in fact, is of use. The
timber, beiu,; hard and strong, close and wren
grained, is used for the wheels of carriages,
railway slee .ers, etc. The flowers when dried
have somewhat tho odor and appearance of
sultana rais ris. They are produced in enor
mous quanti ies iu March am h April after the
old leaves Lave fallen and bef ore the new
leaves have appeared. The crop rarely fails.
The fleshy llowers fall off and cover the
ground bum atii the trees, and are gathered
eagerly by the natives every uioruiug during
the flowering season.
A single trt- yields from 200 to 400 iKrands
weight of fl iwe.Dk They are very rich in
sugar and iold when fermented a large
quantity of i-pirit, as much as six and one
sixteenth gallons of proof spirit per hundred
weight havi lg been obtaiuiMl from them.
The spirit is uauufitctured to a great extent
Iu India, and it is said that the government
receives quit.) a large amount for duty ou the
spirita dl--.till.-d. The flowers have from time
to time lieen placed before important distil
lers in Engla id, but owing to a peculiar fla
vor being d -velojed caused, it is thought,
by the persi.-rent stamens, which it is difficult
to remove f r mi tho flowers the spirit dis
tilled has nev er been brought into consump
tion in the British market. Chambers' Jour

An order for a mw ship of the class re
quired to coi ipete iu the uiodt-ru liusseuger
service uf th Atlantic is not by any means
a mutter to t-e determined ou without grave
consideration Speed is costly, and as you
increase it it is generally necessary to also
increase the t inunge. This forces iim your
consideration titles, channels, hnrUir bars
and dock ace mimodntions, nil of which im
post? limitations uiton you. And then the cost
of the ship he:-wif is not n matter which even
the wealthiest of roi'N .rations cau provide
for at a moment's notice; it is not tioo.lltio,
nor ."00,00il that the work calls for, but
about five tin es the latter sum, for it is safe
to say that s. vessel suierior to the City of
Now York or tho Etruria could not lie built
for lew than t!,.rill,(KIO. Sometimes tha
shipbuilders are willing to tx-come part own
ers of the pr (jected vessel; sometimes they
take as part p ivmcnt for the work some older
vessels of the line, w hich they relit, re-eugiue,,
modernize and sell again.
The ability the builders to make an ar
rangement of this kind, of course, influences
the placing of the contract, in a measure, but
thpy must uls be ablo to give certain guar
antees. They must enter into an engage
ment that the projected ship shall tie able to
carry so many passengers and so many tons
of cargo and to attain a siecititHl sfieed on a
giveu consumption of coal er dny. Let us
say, for inula ice, that the st ipulations are
these: Accommodations for (loo saloon pas
sengers, 150 intermediate passengers and
1,500 steerage passengers; registered tonnage,
0,000; sjieed, HI knots on u consumption of
300 tons tier day. If tho ship fads to fulfill
these conditions the builders agree to forfeit a
part of the an omit they would otherwise re
ceive for her, or they may lie conqielled to
take her back altogether. This was the case
with the City of Home, which was built for
the Iuniau line by the Harrow Shipbuilding
company. Sc ribuur's.

"Another wonderful discovery has
been made, and that, too, by a lady in

clutches upon her and for seven years she
withstood itsseveresta tests, but her vital
organs were undermined and death
seemed imminent. For three months she
coughed incessantly and could not sleep.

so much relieved on taking the fiist dose
that she slept all night, and with one
bottle has been miraculously cured. Her
