rolled so swiftly they passed ber often and
made her look lhind with a start to see if a
pursuer were com lug.
"They'd put nie in the asylum, sure," she
muttered wildly as she trudged along.
At the foot of the hill she sat down upon an
old log and waited for the train.
Across the road, guarded by a big sign,

At last the dull rumble sounded, a shrill
whistle and she hurried to the track, waviug

This, in the conductor's vernacular, was a

The train stopped, and this passenger was
helped aboard, lie notiiwd sbe was a bright
eyed old lady, very neat and precise.

and the old horse jogged into tbe woods, and

"It's a long journey for an old lady like

'With Providence," she answered brightly,
alert and eai;er to help herself, but silent and
thoughtful as the train took her into strange
landscapes where the miles went so swiftly it
seemed liko the past years of ber life as she
looked hack on tbotu,
"Thy work is marvelous," she murmured
oftm, sitting with her bawla folded, uvt few
kilo days bad there tweo in her world where
sbe had sat and rested so long.

generous, shnring their baskets with !..' ...h

country ground. Hhe tended babies for tired
women and talked to the men of firming and
crops, or told the children ililile Tories; but
never a word she said of herself, not ono.
On again, guided by kindly hands through
the great liewilderiug city by the hike, and
now through yet a stranger land. Tired and
worn by nights in the uncomfortable seats.
her brave spirit began to fail a little. As tbe
wide, level plains, lonely and drear, dawned
on nor slht she sighed often.

But as the day wore on, and still tbe long,

something like a sob rose under the black
kerchief on the bowed shoulders, and the
spectacles were taken off with trembling

"From Main," she answered, and then ab
gTew communicative, for she was always a
chatty old lady, and she had possessed ber
soul in silence so kmg, and it was a relief to
tell the story of ber weary years of waiting'
to a kindly listener.
She told him all the relations shn bad were
two (rrandnaphews and their families. That
twenty years ago Bam (for she had brought
them up when their iarent died of consump
tion, that kills so many of onr tolas) went
out west. He was always adventurous, and
for tan years she did not hear from him; but
John was different and steady, and when be
came of agesbo bad given him ber farm,
witb tbe provision she should always have a
home, otherwise he would have gone away,
too, Well, for five years they were happy,
then John married, aud bis wife bad grown
to think her a burden as tbe years went on,
and the children when they grew big did not
eare for ber.slie felt slie bad lived too long.
"I growed so lonesome," she said patheti
cally, "it seems I couldn't take up heart to
live day by day, an' yit 1 kuowed our folks

wrote be was a doln' fair an' sunt me money,

if sbe needed help. With a warm band clasp

bur memory of "folks thut had bin kind to

But many of the passengers bad listened to
her story and were interested, aud they came
to sit with her.
One pale little lad in tbe seat in front
turned round to look at tier now and then aud
to answer her snula. He was going to the
new country lor Health and wealth, poor lad,
only to find eternal rest in tbe sunnv land
but his hv days brightened by the reward
for nu thoughtful act of kindness.
"She proiiably brought those boys up," be
thought, "and denied her life for them. Is
she to ilie unrewarded, I wonder? There
cannot be any good in the world if that be
so." He thought of' her and took ont his
poor purse; there was so little money in it,
bio, every cent made a big bole In his store;
but the consciousness of a good deed was worth
something. "1 mayn't have the chance to do
many more," thought the lad, buttoning Lis
w orn overcoat.
He slipped off without a word at a station
and sent a tekgrnm to Denver.
"To Samuel llair"-for be had caught the
nainelrom ber talk "Your Aunt Hannah
Blair, of Maine, is on the V. and W. train
coining to you."
It was fiily a straw, but a kindly wind

The door of the car slummed suddenly, and
a big bearded man with eager blue eyes came
down the aUla looking sharply from right to

meet 'ins trtun. riis glance fill ou the tiny
"Why, 'Aunt Hannah!" he cried, with a
break in his voice, uud she she put out her
trembling hands and full into the big arms,
tears streaming down the wrinkled-face.
"I kaow-ed Provideuce would let uie find

tuiilod wheu the big mau sat down beside her
and with gentle baud wiped her tears away.
"Why, I ve seut John f Ju a mouth for five
years for you," he said angrily, as she told
him why she ran away, "and be said yon

helpless, and I have written to you often and
sent you money. It's hard for a man to call

"Work, indeed! don't I ewe you every

for you to come. There are so few dear old
aunts in this country, they're prized, I tell
you. Why, it's as good as a royal coat-of-arms
to have a dour handsome old woman
like you for a relation."
Then he found out who sent the telegram
and paid the Lid, who blushed and stam
mered like a girl and did not wiint to take it.
"I suppose you want a job," said the big
man. H ell, 1 can give you one: I'm in the
food commission business. Give you some

The Grand Prerequisite of Vigor.
Tbe dual operation of digestion and as
aimilation is the grand prerequisite of
vigor. To insure the conversion of food
into rich nutritious blood, it is only nec
essary to use with persistence tnd sys
tematically Hostetters Stomach Bitters.
Tbe fountain bead of supply in tbe ani
mal economy is the stomach . To regu
late, to invigorate that organ, and thus
facilitate its digestive and assimilative
processes, should be the chief aim ot
those troubled witb a deficit of stamina.
Nervousness, insomania, feeble appetite
these are usually traceable to impaired
digestion. Overcome this and yon of
necessity dismiss its multifarious, per
plnxing and harrassinc symptoms. Tbe
emaciated can never hope to gain flesh so
long as assimilation is imperfect. The
Bitters surmounts the only obstacle to an
increase not only of vigor, but of bodily
substance. Conquer also with the Bit
ters malaria, kidney and liver complaint,
constipation and rheumatic trouble.
Thoroughness characterizes its effects.
Tbe heavy rains of the past month have
seriously damaged tbe cotton, corn, and
tobacco crops of North Carolina.

An emissary of the Freeport Bulletin
took a run up to Dubuque tb 3 other day.

Dubuque is a great town. Even Rome
with all tbe glories of her seven bills
cannot touch ber. forDubuqi e his seven
hundred of them. The am isements of
the community are two, viz.: walking up
bill; walking down bill. On these two
propositions hang all the loss and tbe
profit. The gardens are in stories. Some
of the wealthiest have gardi ns Ave and
six stories high, and a man cin sit on bis
back porch and see everything in his
yard at a glance. The only objection is
that a pumpkin is apt to fall iff the vines
in the third or fourth layer ot his lot and
come crashing through tbe litchen win
dow. One man will build a ,'touse at the
base of the hill; the next re la bis cellar
on the roof of the house below, and thus
on until the summit of the bluff is
reached. In this way the circumnatn
bient air is kept full of ct liars all tbe
time, and it is no uncommon thing for a
householder to find tbst the Dasement of
some mansion thirty degrees ncsr r the
golden gatehas been blown do-vnhiscbim
ney during the witching hours of night.
It is a great counirv lor tobogganing,
coasting and grtpe raising, tut for cro
quet, corn and cauliflower it is no good.
A person dot s not dare to t irow stont 8
at a cow or anything else, as no one ran
tell exactly where the misslc will bring
up. A stone started in the t lird ward is
apt to bring up in the fifth and knock
down a whole row of flaxen Laired cbiK
dren, in the production of wtom the citv
takes an honest pride.
Your correspondent enjoyed the pleas
lire of a ride in one of tbe elevators
which infest the plare, Theie elevators
are cable roads running up the side, of
the bluffs, and the cars are pilled up by
stationary engines. The Dubi qucite pays
five cents for-a trip in one f these mas
chines, but the urbane ard gracious
young gentleman who pulls the string
and acts as captain, crew and pusher
allowed me to pay him twent i cents for a
few glad seconds of his society. Hisi
eagle eye permits him to tell the unso-!
phisticated at a glance and although I
did not tell him I was a jay h miiMt easily
have discovered the awful truth. The
elevator goes up as if fired oi t of a gun.
You get a check for your b tath when
jou go into the station and n your re
turn tbe genial flicia refunds it- I
think he made a mist&ke though in my
case and gave me back the br-ath belong
ing to another man, as it did l't seem to
tit well in the neck and was I eyed as low
as If it belonged to some t iiman fiend
from the levee. As the tn nger glides
up tbe side of tbe bluff the fad thought
comes to him of what would be tbe re
sult if the cable should part, and the con
ductor and brakeman reatsu e him witb
the promise that the car and its contents
would be driven into the grc uud so far
that two men with a cork screw couldn't
pull them out in nine years.
It grieves me to he compered to cons
fess that although Dubuque is in a stout
prohibition state the drink evil is not en
tirely exterminated, although the native
Iowan is exterminating it gliss by glass
as fast as his circumstances 'Till permit.
There are 150 saloons and fo ir breweries
in the town and a man who wanders
hither and thither with a desrterate pur
pose in mind may hope at tbi last to lake
in the zoological gardens wterein dwell
many strange and curious cteatures not
down in the register. There are two sa
loons in the city that have not been cloicd
since the stale went for prohibition.
Night and day, week dv nd holiday,
they keep the latch-string out for the
high and humble. They do not alone
take in the pampered aristocrat, but the
meekest son of toil may put his nickel in
the slot snd draw his simple f. lass of beer
with a crest on it as high ai his elbow.
Thus may we see the benefice nt effects of
prohibition as she am. If the stile hhould
go for license some of the poo - i-aloon men
would have to go out f f b isiness and
their prospects would be ruined. Thus
does a mighty commonweal' h put her
strong arm around her citizens and aid
them in maintaining trade.
It was my fate to be invited down to
the club bouse of the Dubuq le Floating
association in the warm afternoon and it
was found to be the cool eft place on
earth. Out on tbe elevated balcony over
tbe soft waves of the Mississippi the wind
blew through my whiskers lil.e an leolUn
harp. Tbe boys have their quarters very
handsomely fitted up, and their
membership includes the best people of
