A PARABLE OF CHARLEY. I
Now it came to pass that in the third j
ar of tho reign of Catharine, Queen
the Earth, I befcamd acquainted with ,
Charley was the brother of Catharine,
d was a good-Ieoking, solid, respecta- (
ekind of a fellow, with square shoul- ,
rs, ruddy face, blonde beard, and a (
11 blue eye, whoso glance fell upon .
iu liko a shaft. In all his social and
isiness relations he was an eminently ,
rrect young man, against whom the ]
ircBt of mistakes or failures could be (
ged. This combined with tho fact }
at ho was Catharine's brother, was
e reason for the deep and undying ha- ,
id which I bore him?a hatred which
r a long time seemed capable of being ^
peased only by gore. ,
In the first place, he was always ?
inctual. The unfailing regularity j
th which he every morning appeared (
his desk in the pork house (he was j
innger in the establishment) was only j
ualed by the exceeding precision with
th which he discharged the minutest ,
tails of his daily appointments. Now |
im fond of the morning hour for sleep,
pself, and h-^e a theory that one
11 live longer . he employ it in sleep. |
lerefore I pity a man who will continusly
peril his health as Charlej does. |

isiness, any more than a responsible
>ck is observed to deviate from its atstomed
method of beating seconds,
sing disposed, myself, to think that all
well that ends welt, I can feel nothing
it contempt for a man who is such a
In the next place he was stable and
rmanent. He had at once decided
ion his line of life, and had never afp
wavered in it. He had been twelve
ors in the establishment of which he
is manager, and which ho had 6rst enred
in the capacity of fourth bookeper
when he was yet a mere lad.
I mj'self, having tried in turn a half- 1
zon different occupations, nil of
hich proved uncongenial, am by nare
indeadly feud with the man who
s )no spice in his lifo. (Though I
ve often suspected that it was my own
ke which was dough.)
And then again, he was contented at
>me. Ho had repeatedly received "the
ndest invitations to join parties tour5
in Kurope, to Cuba, to California, or
the National Park; but, although
undantly able to travel, he always dened
these propositions, saying that he
uld not spare the time from business.
Now I am passionately fond of travel,
ange and excitement, and have visited
)st of the leading places of interest to
urists?although myself a poor man.
I have no patience with an unambiins
When I add to nil these things the
3gusting prosperity of the man; his '
erlastingly-increasing salary?I have
id enough to explain to any rational 1
ind the ill will I bore for Charley. 1
But that which first fanned the slumring
fires of my wrath and well-nigh "
used me to imbrue my hands in the
art's-blood of a fellow-being, hapned
in this wise. I had just roturned
>m a year's residence in California (and |
as searching for employment,) when, i
a matter of course, V called upon i
itharine. For Catharine is long-sufring
and kind, and - so I am alw^gs i
ivileged to call upon her. As I entered i
e drawing room, Catharine extended
ir hand to me, and permitted me to sate
the tips of her fingers. (I often <
ondered whether, if I had $50,000, she
ould not?but no matter !) Then I
t down, and proposed to tell her all i
iout my experiences in the West,
itharine listened politely for a time?
ie is the politest person !?and then
n*.ly told me that she did not care to
tar about my Western life. An awknrd
pause ensued, and at length Cathine
remarked : "Did I ever tell you
the offer Charley had, to go in charge
an excursion to Colifornia ?"
I remarked that she never had.
"Yes : he could have gono for nothg,
and have remained a month. The
m wished him to go, and told him he
jeded rest. But he would not go.
barley is such a hand toftay at home
id stick to business "
I pleasantly changed the topic, and
?jran to speak of some of the young
dy acquaintances I had met since my
turn, remarking how glad they aeem>
1 to see mu.
"Did you seo Hattie Coswell ?" asked
"Oh ! yea ; and she?''
''They say that she isN quite wollIcased
with Charley. But Charley is
general favorite with the ladies, altough
I believe he hardly understands
by they flock about him so?or pertps,
indeed, never suspect that they do
Be has no heart, perhaps, said 1,
"Indeed sir, you quite mistake t I
m very sure he has a heart, and a many
one at that. I think he will paj lit
tie attention to tho ladies until he has
ittaincd his station in lifc, and made a
boroo for himself; then, I think, he
will not make much stir about it, but
frill just get married."
Catharine sighed a little sigh, which
she changed at once. I changed the
subject. I talked of my business plans.
5ho listened for a time, and then said
suddenly, as if she had just though of
"Charley never talks of business to ii?
women, although he manages tho business
of'the whole family. Ho thinks'
the men ought to attend to tho business."
("May the foul fiend fly away with
Charley!" thought I.") * - ,
I gnyly fell upon another theme, and
isked Catharine to admire my new coat.
'Yes; it is very pretty," said she.
rhen, after a moment, *'I do think JCharley
has the fewest suits, to look so well
is he does. But then he is economical
in everything. He will make a pood
husband, Charley will!"
I resolved for the twentieth time, to
murder Charley, and soon after excuscd
myself and retired.
It was not long after this I fell dangerously
ill, being confined to my bed
for some weeks. My condition beci -to
10 alarming that I was visited and contantly
attended by Catharine, who proved
herself a most deyoted and efficient
nurse, so that, (although during my
:on valesconco I remerab?r once to have
tieard her murmur to herself that

jn the whole find any fault with her
ministrations. Indeed, I am inclined to
think that my sickness was a dispensation
of Providence, for during tho days
jf my slow recovery I had ample time
to review my life, and review it I did.
A.nd a very poor and miserable kind of
life I found it, with no purpose and no
tuccess at all attached to it. It 'was not
the kind of a life which I admired,
though singularly enough I had not
thought of that before, and probably
never would have done so had it not
been for that convenient Charley. And
then and there I resolved to reform, to
make the most of myself^and go steadily
to work with a purpose.
When I grew better I called upon
Catharine again. I took her whole hand
in mine and told her that t had been a
fool?and that I loved her. I told her
that I was going West again, but that I
kvas going to stick to my business and
make a home?and that I loved her
ijuue soon alter that .1 rose to go.
Catharine rose also. She leaned toward
me quite imperceptibly, and *11 at once
1 saw that, if I wished, it might all be
is it was five years before. With the
greatest struggle of my life. I saluted
jnly the tips of her fingers, and said to
"Catherine, my dear girl, I am not
rrorthy to touch your lips now. When
1 come back I will be, and then I will
From the other side of my shoulder
Catharine sobbed : "I am q'quito sure
that Ch-Charley would, ri-right now !"
"God bless you, Charley 1" thought I.

Proverbs of Sam Jones.
The following are soino of tho latest
proverbs of tho llev. Sam Jones, whose
reputation as a revivalist has rapidly
spread over a continent:
I would not let my cook go to a german.
Dancing is nothing but hugging
net to music.
"I have donbts," says one. Well you
just quit your meanness and you will
quit your doubting.
If a man hasn't enough re*ligion to
pray in his family ho hasn't enough to
Bavc his soul with.
It's not so much when and where a
man joins the church. It's all right
just so he sticks up to it.
Be honest and pay your debts. There
are too many men in church boarding
with their wives.
Get in the right attitude and faith will
come. Bread is the gift of God, at the
end of a plough handle.
Have religion at home, train your
children right and no revival will be
needed. Religion is oatching.
There is not a man in Chattanooga
who dosen't have family prayors that
has got as much religion as a goat.
Twelve yoars ago I consecrated myself
to God, and sinco that timo never
had an invitation a ball.
A roan's tastos and his likes determine
character; a man's affinities deter*
mine what he is and who ho is.
I got mighty low down, low down in>
deed, but I never got low enough to
be a member of the Georgia Legislature.
Thero wart never * sinner in this

Do you think a pale, tffeak looking

If I could have my choice getting in- t

There are two kinds of talk we should i
not indulge?smutty talk and gossip ; of 8
the two, though, I would rather be i
smutty. One throws mud on you, the e
other stabs your character ; one you can r
wash off, the other destroys you. (
A Truthful Tribute. (
There can bo no question of Dr. Fel- 1
ton's ability, eloquence and sincerity. t
His recent speech on the convict system,
in advocacy of a reformatory bill 1
was full of intellectual force and replete '
with rhetorical fervor. Here is an ex- (
tract from that speech which is one of 1
its noblest passages, because wrung 1
from tho speaker's love of justice : '
And right here let mo give a compli- J
inent to Joseph E. Brown. You all I
know I am not in the habit of compli- menting
Governor Brown, but sir, candor
compels mo to do it. Governor
Brown?and I have special information
from every quarter?manages his camp <
at Dade coal min is most admirably, t
There you see all tho characteristics of f
the christian, humane man. There is
no cruelty there unnecessarily. It is ^
clean, it is healthful, he does not forco <
them to cruel labor and I, here, to-day, g
stand right upon the threshold of a
criticism of theso camps and take occasion
as a Georgian and as a member of
this House most heartily to congratulate
Georgia that she has at least one t
humane gentleman in charge of a por- ^
tion of her miserable convicts. t
It required just such sublime moral
courage as Dr. Felton possesses, in an
ciuiiiuiii ucgict, IU aj/taiv muau nuiuo ui j
"truth and soberness" of a great man .
with whom he has not always been in 1
accord. And Senator Brown will know '
how to aapprcciate a compliment like
that coming from such a distinguished (
and virtuous source. No tnan has,
when challenged for the proof, as Mr.
Stephens said, on a memorable occasion,
ever fastened upon Joseph K. Brown
any stain of dishonesty. And Dr. Fel- '
ton is witness of tho highest order that
the eminent Senator is as humane as he
is fair-minded in dealing with his fel- '
low men, high or low.?Augusta
A Circus in n Gale. <
Yesterday afternoon's performances 1
of Robinson's circus had got well under 1
way. the baas trombone player in the '
main tent was swallowing yard stick
after yard stick of bass tubing, the bass
drummer was pounding sheol out of the
big drum and the ladies on the trapeze
were turning '.homselves inside out in
the midst of the arms and feet of their
male fellow acrobats, the five hundred
pound fat woman was showing off before
numerous admirers, th j living skeleton
was flirting with the tattooed woman
from Circassa (New York.) the real
Zulu chief was sadly dreaming of hunting
the antelope in his native wilds
(Jersey City) and the great crowds' aggregating
perhaps 4,000 people, were taken
in all the beauties of the various attractions,
when a tornado scooped down
on the big tents "like the wolf on the 1
fold," only "its cohorts" were not 1

cents apiece meant something and they
wanted their money's worth. Finally, >
as the blast increased and the tents
threatened to go to pieces, the crowd 1
started and the circus men and the po- '
lice got all outside with no one hurt, but
the women lost thoir broad-brimmed :
hats that had shut out the view of the 1
ring from many a man seated behind '
them, children clung to their mothers,

their arms from the blinding dust, which
drove into everything and filled every
woman's hair chock run ana brought out
in basroleif every stain and grease spot

But there was a circus all by itself in
the menagerie. As the dunt storm blew
in the tent sides, the . refreshment man
made a wild dive for his antiquated gingerbread
cake, buns and bottles of soda
pop which had weathered many a similar
gale, and got theiu safely in his chost

racket Then the notting enclosing tho
two ostriches (emus) blew over, letting
tho bicds out into arena, where they ran
frantically about, with a dozen c*rcus attaches
and a Rocky Mountain Neu>* reporter
in full tilt after them. Jit required
the might of eight men and the reporter
to capture the birds, who struggled
valiantly for freedom. The two
birds wore atraitway put into their cage
and attention was at once turned to the
elephants, who were trumpeting wild

These gentle creatures were run
outside and pacified and the cages conainingthe
wilder animals were then
:losed, the intense rage of the occu>ants,
whose howlings added greatly to
he charms of the scene. The laughing
lyenas turned innumerable somersaults
n trying to get loose and their hoarse,
ihnrp bark, added to the heart-broken
vails of tho kangaroo and the cow with
teven legs, the shrieks of the smaller
inimals and cries of the dwarfs and the
Circassian girl, who had lost her wig altogether,
with the rushing of the dust

;Bavarta'fi Royal Crank.
Vienna, June 30.?Mme Walter, tho
ragedienne, has returned from Munich,
vhero she played before the King in
'Narcissus," and received a splendid
liamond broach as a token of his apprenation.
But this present was one of
ittle value, comparatively, and does not
ndicate great favoritism, although a right
oyal gift. A few weeks ago he gave
VIme Matten, the singer, a brace let of
smerals and diamonds of almost priceless
raluc, although she had sung before him
>nly once in two years. He is as fond as
>vpr 01 having his theatre and his acting
ill to himself, and Sardou's 'Theodora"
pleased him so much that he expressed
;he wish to see it a second time, but he
tvould not consent to give up another
:>iece, which had been prepared When
:hc directors complained that the actors
:ould not play from early evening until
tunrise next morning, he was piqued,
ind did not come to the theatre at all, so
:he actors left Munich without having
tgain seen the royal visage. The King
las offended several diplomats by refusng
to let thein attend these private
(^presentations. The sums which the
King spends upon this hobby are really
jxtravagant, be easily credited by those
vho have seen "Theodora" played at
Paris. The splendid scenery was
jrought from France in a special train,
inu accessories were an as oeautliui

irhich has just been begun. It is to be
'eared that these palatial residences will
lot last long, their dimensions being so
^rcatthat to keep them up in suitable
jtylo would devour twice tin? King's iniomo.
But King Louix' financinl difficulties
do not torment him, and ullhough
he has been repeatedly told that ho is
terribly indebted, he still has tho sand
of his grave walks mixed with gold
dust, and the dreams of his extrayngar.t
fancy are realized by thousands of busy
bands as soon as they are conceived.
A remarkabio contrast to King Louis
is his cousin Duk* Charles Theodore of
Bavaria, who has just left Meran, where
be spent four months with bis family, to
return to his delighful castle on the
Tegern Lake in Bavaria. After harm/
practiced medicine fur over twenty years
the Duke has now become one of the
most successful oculists in Gormany or
Austria. At all hours, day and night, he
admits the poor to his study and in
urgent cases ho visits his patient's bedside.
Ht operated on 152 blind persons
in Meran and tho neighborhood successfully,
and visited all the sick far and
wide. The population in those parts
hold him in iripersticious reverence, and
begin to believe that the touch of his
hand alone can heal them. In Togerusce
I have scan him drive over solitary
roads and through dark forests in tho
middteof the night to relieve a sufferer
in a distant cottage. After relieving
and comforting his patients, he returns
home to have the medioines made up in
his chemist's shop, and sends his ooaehman
back with them. The people's eyes
light up when his name is mentioned.
How seriously the Duke sppiies himself
to tho task of relieving mankind of its
suffering is proved by the faet that he
spent the last two winters at Vienna in
attending the lectnrcs of the moot re-,
nowned professors of the Vienna University,
where he regnlarly drove Dp to
tne,door evory morning si# s?d wit
among the students, and afterward* witnessed
the operations in the Ixupital and

A correspondent of the Western
Ploioinnn writes : N
To feed oats in the sheaf is the most
expensive way they can be fed, and one
that the stock will receive the smallest
amount of benefit from the same amount
of feed. There is so much waste in this
way of feeding that it cannot under any
circumstances be recommended. When
fed in this way stock will eat what they
can get at of the heads readily, and
trample tho remainder under their feet.
Oats, to make the best feed, shoald be
cut before they are ripe, as the straw ia
much more nutritious than when the
oats are allowed to become dead ripe
before they are harvested.
Care should also bo taken to see that
they are thoroughly dried before mowing
away or stacking, as they heat and
mould very easily stored away in large
piles boforo they are thoroughly dried
Tho most economical plan of feeding
is to take a good cutting box and cut
the oats up fine, heads and all. By
mixing up thoroughly, stock will eat
them all up clean and there is no wasta
at all. And stock fed upon them in
this way will keep in the very best condition.
A little improvement can bo
made that stock will relish them a littlo
better, is to mix a small quantity of
bran with the cut oats wet with water
and then feed. This gives a cheap,
economical feed equal for all purposes,
to almost anything else that can be selected.
Teams that are kept hard at work,
nithor nn tho firm or on the road, will
stand work better if fed upon good,
clean thretihed oats and timothy hay
than almost any thing else; yet there are
sevoral foods that are oheaper.
