We have at last had a glorious rain.
After nine long sweltering weeks with
out it drop to lay the dtust or purify the
atmaaosphere it catae with a downpour
and every boly is happy. The gardens
will revive anl the flowers will bloom
aga in and the farmers will rejoice for
it has come inl time to save their
languishing crops. The dear little sick
child whom we have been nursing so
tenderly and watching for many days
will now get well. Aly wife or one of

'l'hen again I ti led to tike comf.'rt
by readig the tribute that Charles
Franeis Adams has recently paid to
General lutbert l;. Lee. It seems to
be gelting quite fashionable to praise
Lem up there, but, really I don't, see
why Ihey should single him out, and
damn 1lr. Davis and all the rest of us
and the cause for which lice fought.
I don't like any man who praises I,ee
and stabs \ir. Davis. Lee aud I )avis
were like brothers all their mature
lives. 'I'hey were classmates at West
l'oint and during our civil war they
were bosom companions and never dis
agreed about anything. It is a gross
insult, to the memory of I.ee to slander
his closest and dearest friend. No
gentlemnan would do it.
I have not heard of (Charles lP"ancis
Adams slandering AIr. Davis, but we
have good reasons to a eipt'et that, he
belongs to the (oblwin Smith and
Roosevelt crowd, for he voluntarily
took command of a negro regiment
during the war, and that is a had sicn.
No genitleiman would have done it It
was an evidence that he helIevcd nig
gers would make war hell to us and
they would kill and rob and rape and
burn out, of revenge. No, I have no
respect ftor this Adams nor I,ew Wal
lace nor any other man who command

about a woman trying to bioartl a train

very inidigntant and wanted to know
what shermust, dot with her dog. t" Put

ductor. As she handed up the canine
to the baggage mani she said, " Well, I
r'eckon I ean ride where my (log i'ides."'
and she went iinto the baggage car'.
The man wasi disgut.ted. le tied the
dog with a little cord anid she squatted
on a box near' by..
After they p)assed Sanford she got

and they gave her one. She took one

gave an unearthly odor and as he

he seirzed her little 'leeping dog and
threw him out of the window. The
woman screamed with anger; she
mauled him over the head with her
umbrella. She screamed and yelled
for the train to stop. Iie stood it all
heroically. '' Madam, I sent your dog
to lind mmetl1 pipe,'' he said. The
alarm was so great that the conductor
came running in and some passengers
illed the door, while the woman did
.the talking. " My husband will meet
me at Orlando,'' she said, "andi he will
maul the juice out of you, you bald
headed rascal.'' " Veel, I will give
him a chance," said he.
The train soon rolled up to Orlando,
and sure enough the woman's husband
was there. She became violent and
hysterical as she told her wrongs and
pointed out the man. " I1et him come 1
out here," said the husband, 1 I dare I
him to come out here." " Veel, I sup

the I )utchman, "and take de medicine, i
but I shore don't vant no little guuns in i
it nor butcher knives. I can light i
some mid mine fists." He took off his
coat and -handed it to a bystander.
The crowd increased. The conductor I
said he would stop the train for ten e
minutes. A ring was made fol' the r
mten to light in and everybody was in t
a state of high expectation. Here my
friend stopped his narrative and lit a
fresh cigar and commenced talking c
about something else. r
"But the fight,'' said I, "what about i
the light?" "e Oh I there wasn't any I
light," he said. " Just as they were t
about to clutch somebody cried out. t
" Look yonderl look yonderI look down i

how I Served my Appi enticeship as

owing extracts are made :
" The eldest w-m of parents who
vere themselves poor, I had, fortu.
lately, to begin to perform some useful
rvork in the world while still very
foung in order to urn an honest live

the merchants supplying the materials.
" As the factory system developed,
biandloom weavlag naturally declined' t.
and my father was one of t,he sufferers
b)y the change. The irst,serious lessont
of my life came to me one day wh)en
lie had taken in the last of his work
to the merchant and returnedi' to our
little home great,ly distressedi because
there was no more work for him to do.
I was then just, about ten years of age,
but t,he lesson burned into my heart,,
anid I resolved then that ' the wolf ofI

"The question of selling the 01(1d

be otherwise than a great sacrifiee for

our two boys.'

Many millions of dollars have passed
through my hands. liut the genuine
satisfaction I had from Ihat one dollar

was the direct reward of honest imanual
labor ; it represonted it week of very
hard work, so hard that bumt for the aim

ig the water right and of running the
ngine, and the danger of my making

What to Do.
There is comfort in the knowledge so
often expressed, that Dr. Kilmer's Swamp
Root, the great kidney remedy fulfills every
wish in curing rheumatism, pain in the
back, kidneys, liver, bladder and every part
of the urinary passage. It corrects inability
to hold water and scalding pain in passing
it, or bad effects following use of liquor.
wine or beer, and overcomes that unpleasant
necessity of being compelled to go often
during the day, and to get up many times
during the night. The mild and the extra
ordinary effect of Swamp-Root is soon
realized. It stands the highest for its won
derful cures of the most distressing cases.'
