"IN TBE LONG RUN."
This old-fashioned saying,
So lightly expressed,
And so carelessly uttered,
Is one of the best.
Oh, pondur, young trifler,
With young life begun,
The deep earnest meaning
Of "in the long run."
For "in the long run," b9ys,
Tho seed will spring up
That was sown in the garden
Or dropped in the cup.
And, remember I no roses
Will spring from the weed,
And no beautiful fruit
From unworthy seod.
How many a stripling
In trouble to-day,
By YLotous living
With com ados too gay
With cbaracter shipwrecked
And duties undone,
Will be sorrows harvesting
"In. the long run."
And "in the long run," will
The toiler fare best
Who performs honest labor
And takes honest rest.
Who, contented and happy,
Hastes not, in a day,
Or a year, to heap riches
That will pass away I
The good and the evil
That bide on the earth,
The joy and the sorrow,
The pain and the mirth.
The batt'es undeeded,
The viotories iron,
Will yield what was sown lads,
"In the long run."
A bitter day.
Not a pleasant lay to travel on, by any
moans; but then Lettice Mainwaring was

cheerily, as she wound her tur round and
round her neck.
"And old Stokes's stage Is awfully un
comfortable," added the landlady.
'I like stage riding," asserted Letty.
"You'll not get there till dark."
"Oh, that is sooner than I expctcd."
And Letty climbed up into the stage
coach which stood creaking and groaning
at the door, having just rumbled up from
the next village, a miln or %n (Inwn the hill.

Lettice arranged her bags and her basket
and her bonnet strings, and wondered so
cretly how tar the tall man was going.

courteously queried the gentleman, as Let

Grappling a Grizzly.
Mr. Rogers recently went squirrel hun
- ting near Calaveras, California. In his
walk he cale upon a monster grizzly bear.
i When discovered the bear was not over
twenty feet distant-a space that Rogers
had not the remotest desire to diminish.
Y Man and beast discovered each other's pro
8ence at the same instance. Rogers is a re
solute map, a splendid marksman and well
I inured to the dangers and experiences of
backwoods life; but, as with a full know
LO ledge of the characteristics of the ferocious
animal facing him, he realized his situation,
- hope died away in his breast. For a mo
il mont he stood irresolute. Ilis first impulse
was to run ; but his better judgment told
him that if he did so, and should be pursued
by the grizzle, escape would be impossible,
d and that he would be taken at a disadvan
d tage lin the struggle which must invitably
follow. Dreadful as was the alternative of
n facing his terrible enemy, it was his only
hope, and Rogers firmly resolved to stand
u his ground, and if the worst come to the
- worst, to at least sell his life as dearly as
possible. There was a chance that the
grizzly might not attack him If he retained
d a bold attitude, but whatever hopes Rogers
a builded upon that foundation were speedily
dispelled by the bear giving a low growl,
dropping his mutton and advancing toward
him. The hunter's heart leaped to his
throat as the threatened struggle became
n an unavoidable certainty, and the agonizing
" thought that its result might leave his wife
5 a widow and his children fatherless nearly
unmanned him. The weakness was but
8 ion:1entary, and then with every muscle
and nerve in his body drawn to their ut
r inost tension, the man, awaited the onset of
the beast with as much coolness as though
his life were not at stake in the unequal
contest. As the grizzly slowly came to
wards him and had got within a distance of
8 about fifteen steps, Rogers drew his rifle to
8 his shoulder, and with a steady aim planted
r a bullet in the bear's breast, just inside the
3 point of the right shoulder. The aninal
was hit hard, but no sixty-to-the-pound
I bullet ever stopped a grizzly. Throwing
aside the now useless rifle, and drawing
his knife, Rogers braced himself for the
d death struggle. As the shaggy monster
reared upon Its haunches, its great, black
convex head towering two feet above Ro
gers, the latter involuntary threw up his
left arm like a pugilist on guard. The bear
seized the arn in its month, and throwing
its great paws over the shoulders of the
hunEer, hugged him in an embrace so
cruel that his eyes seemed starting from
their sockets, and the blood gushed from
his nostrils. Rogers' right arm was free
and he drove the long, keen blade of his
knife to the hilt in the side of the grizzly,
close to the shoulder. The blade reached a
vital point, inflicting a fatal wound, but its
Inimediate effect was only to increase the
grizzly's ferocity. It hugged Rogers the
closer, its long, sharp, clisel-pointed claws.
Tearing gaping wounds in the unfortunate
bones of the left arm were crunched and
ground to powder in the vise-like jaws of
his terrible antagonist. Wild with the ago
nies of his wounds, Rogers plied his knife
with the energy of desperation, driving it
again into the vitals of the bear, literally
carving it alive, while the latter, with claws
and teeth lacerated its human foe in the
most frightful manner. It was, inded, a
struggle to the death. Rogers, weak from
the loss of blood and half delirious from
pain, now fought more intution than any
- thing else, having only a vague conscious
ness that his life depended upon putting an
end to that of the bear. The terrible
wounds of the grizzly were also commenc
) ing to tell upon its vitality. Rogers' senses
wem not so dulled but that he could distin

. ledge afforded stimulated him to renewed
exertions with his knife. The bear endea

strength, -Rogers plunged his knife into the
grizzly's abdomen, tihe hot life blood and
Iviscera spouting full in his face. The bear
relinquishled its hlolds, and Rogers, torn,
lacerated and bleeding, crawled far enough
away to escape being rent to pieces by tile
terrible death struggle of tihe grizzly. Al
Sthlough victorious Rogers' condition was
rcritical in the extreme, lie was a mile and

The Two Murphy's.
A good story is told of tihe Irish coim- h
edian Joe Murphy.
It wjis durin.g the "blue-ribbon" ex
Clteniont and Joe was Journeying to a ia
small town in the vicility of Pitts- in
burg. As tile train steamed into the ol
depot It was boarded by lalf a dozen PI
men, who, after a htirried conference t
with the conductor, approached tile
comedian with beaming faces.
"Mr. Murphy, I believe,"said the n
spokesman, hat in hand. 64
"Delighten . -ice, sir," replied J--: v

Above the foliage on the illside stands two a
buildings, one of gray stone, whichl looks
like a castle, thle othler standing in thle back
ground, an oblong and red brick structure.
TIhe former was Edwin Forrest's Castle, tile
latter is Mount St. Vincent's Seminary. It Ii

Not Too Brave.
Many Frenchmen, it must be said
and many foreigners, too-who live in
Paris are far from conceding to M. de
Cassagnac, the chivalrous character
which is so generally attributed to him.
Ie is not always the brave man, the
beau gareon, the cavalier sans peur et sans
reproach. There are many stories cir
culating of times and occasions when
his heart has failed him, of men
nerves and skill hedared not encounter
all which are more or less apocryphal.
It Is said he is generally careful and
quick to give the offeuse that he may
choose his weapons. le is a superb
swordsman. But le has fought duels
with pistols. Yes, but at (istances
which would be called absturd arud cow
ardly in America. It Is related that
while taking his coffee one evening at
the ca.fe Holder on the Boulevard
Italienis, a French ollcer who had
great. reputation for courage, strength
and skill in the sword exercise, passed
along and deliberately stirred M. de
Cassagnac's cup with the point of his
walking stick. The latter quietly took
the insult, said nothing, and with great
nonchalance emptied the dregs on the
floor and called a garcon for a new sup
ply. No duel followved. It is said
again there is one man in Paris of
whom Cassagnac has a most careful
consideration. He is a young doctor
of medicine, a rising politician, an ox-s
treme radical, an ambitions fellow who
sp)ent some time in America, mnarried
a rich wvife there, and now lives in a
modest sort of style in the Mon tmnarte
dIstrict of Paris, from which lhe is re
turned by the p)opulace to the Chamber
of Deputies. Hie is a man of excellent
parts, cool-headed, pale and thin faced,
cold eyedl, and a most remarkable left
handed swordsman. His name is Clem
enuceau. You may have noticed his
name Irequently of late in the proceed

A foreign Minister hero who represents
well, say Patagonla--was called upon not
long since by the guardian of an orphan
lady to whom an attache of the Patagonian
legation had offered his hand, his heart
and his fortune. The guardian had evi
dently heard some stories reflecting upon
the young diplomat, and lhe questioned his
superior officer concerning im, beginning
with his reputation for temperance.
"Yes," replied the Minister--from Pata
gonia, be it understood-"he is temper'ate.
'le does not drink much. Heq cannot
drink much, receiving as lie does only $40
a month salary."
"it has been intimated to me that he
gambles," suggested the guardian.
"Yes," answered the Minister-froni
Patagonia--"all young men play a little.
But he does not p lay much. How can he,
when his salary is only $40 a month I"
