DON'I STOP IT, PRINTER.
Uon't stop my paper printor;
Don't strike my nano off yet;
You know the times are stringent
And dollars hard to get;
Biut tug a little harder
Is what I mean to do,
And scrapo the dimoa together,
Enough for me and you.
I can't-aiford to drop it:
I find it doesn't pay
To do without a paper,
However othera may.
I hate to ask my neighbor:
To give me theirs _n loan;
They don't Ju-t say, buat moan it,
Why don't you have your own?
You can't tell how we miss it.
If it by any fato
13hould happen not to roach us,
Or comes a ht'le late.
Thon all is In a hub
A nd things go all awry;
Ant. printer if your married
You know thi roason why.
,1 cannot do without it;
It Is no use to try:
For other people take it,
Aid, printer, so must I.
1, too, must keep well posted,
And know what's going on,
Or fet, and be accounted
A fogy simpleton,
Then take it kindly, printer,
If pay be somewhat slow,
For cash is not so plenty.
And wants not few, you know.
lint, I mu it havo my paper,
Cost what it may to me;
I'd rather dock my sagar,
And do without my wa.
So, printer, don't you stop it,
Un'ess you want my frown,
For here's the year's subscription,
And credit it right down;
And send the paper promptly,
And regularly on, *
And lot it bring us weekly
its welcomed benizon.
Tell me who is here this sununer ?"
Pred Dayton lighted a fresh cigar.
Ilis companion replied :
"My wife has a pretty cousin with her
this year. An heiress, too, Fred."
"What's the figure ?"
"Fifty thousand, from a grandfather, in
her own right, and probably as much more
when her bachelor uncle leaves this world."
"Is there any chance ?"
"She is fancy free as yet, 1 believe. But
after all, you have no occasion to look out
for an heiress with your fortune."
"Bless your innocence, Tom! I could
easily dispose ot fifty thousand more, If it
only bought finery for the future Mis. Day
Leaning from an upper window, but
concealed by a thick running vine a lady
caught the words of the conversation. -
"Upon my word," she soliloquized, "I
am really much obliged to you, Tom I So
his friend will try'to win my money, will

him pay for this, or my name Is not Jennie
T[here was a spice of coquetry in the
heart of the pretty heiress, and she grimly
resolved that if the suitor for her'money had
a heart, she would add to the sting of her
refusal of his offer by wounling that or
gan, if possible.
So, when Mr. Fred Dayton was pr'esented
by pretty Mrs. Hogan to her cousIn, he
found himself greeted with a graceful cor
iality that was Ilatterlng as well as dlelight -
It was on the programme for the p~leas
ures of that -sunny JTune (lay, that a p~arty
was to wander in a shady woods for half a
mile, to seek a spot famous for wild straw
ries, and there to enjoy a picnic Iun
So, as the walkers marshalled for their
procession, it fell out that -Miss Jennie

Ant the ladyi
(Commnenclng her flirtation with her
heart full of pique, and a desire for re
venge, she would not admit to herself
what had made her morning so pleasant.
She told herself it was mere gratification
that her' plans were working so nicely, andl
tile prosphect was now fair for her to make
Mr. Dayton smart for his insolence.
Yet-and she stifled a sigh at the thlought
-It was a pity this delightful dleference,
this effort to please, was all assumed to
gain her money.
She recalled words that proved her new
s'uitor no mere puppy, but a man who had
read much and thought deeply.
The summer (lays passed switly, and
meaning smiles hovered over the faces of
thme others when Mr. Dayton and Miss Wil
lett were mentioned or were noted in eachl
other's company, for the firtation was cam'
riedl on briskly.
It was only ilirtation, to pulnish himn for
his insolence, Jenny sternly told her heart,
when she caught herself namming over hisi
wordls; sighing, too, sometimes, as she
thought the pleasant summer was drawing
to a close, and she must soofA dismiss hem
cavalier from her side forever.
For, and her cheeks burned then, it wu.s
to her money all this winsome court was
paid, and thle smiles, the (deference,-the fit
tentlons, were all for the sake of handingi
her grandfather's legacy.
And while the heiress sighed and mused,
thme wooer was blessing~ the lucky hour that
brought him to N-- for the summer.

walked in a shady, lovely lane, Fred's
words, warm and tender, spoke the true
and sincere passion in his heart.
It wis some monents before the answer
Jennie had to hattile with a desire to put
her little hand in his, and give him back
love for love.
She had to school her face and steady her
voice before sie could answer.
"Mr. Dayton, my answer to you must be
to recall to your menory your conversa
fion with Mr. Ilogan on the porch tle eve
iing of your arrival. Every word of it
wias distinctly audible in my roi.''
"Then you have been playing with tmie?"

It was well for her composure then that.
lie turned abruptly from her, and strode
ral)idly homeward, leaving her to turn 114o
a narrow by-path in the woods, aid sob out
all her pain in solitude.
FJAshe realized now, in bit- er hiimmlia
tion, that, whatever Fred Dayton had
sought in wookig, lie had won her heart.
As the tears chased one another down
her cheeks, one of the unerring instincts of
true love came into 1her heart., and she felt
deeply and keenly that the love she had
insulted and rejected, wats iot the false
suit of a fortune-hunter, but the true heart.
-seeking which is the only sure guarantee
for wedded happiness.
She crept slowly home at last, hiding
her red swollen eyes under her veil, and
went, to her own room.
. Uponi her dressing-table lay a letter, and
as site read it, there came into her busy
brain a quick, luminous idea.
"I'll try it," she said. "My eyes are in
Splendid condition. I'll try it.."
She took her open letter in her hand,
and went mournful'y iiito the room where
lynclieon was in progress of demolition.
As she appeared, Fannie cried:
"Jennie, whit is tIhe matter? You look
as if you had been crying your eyes out.."
"Tlhe 1-- Bank is broken!"
"By Jove !" cried Tom, "all your money
was in that."
Jennie hid her face on Fannie's shoulder,
"Uncle George was married last week I"
"Never mind, Jennie. Come to my
room, darling," said Fannie.
And Jennie suffered herself to be led
"Fred Dayton wants to see you, Jennie,"
said Tom, "In the parlor."
"But will you please read Uncle George's
letter while I an gone I"
She left the room gravely.
She found Mr. Daytan waiting in the
parlor marching up and( down, with true
Before she went in, she looked a moment
at the tall, graceful figure so buoyant with
animation, at the 'handsome face radiant
now with impatient hope, and in her
heart there was a glad little song, with the
refrain : %

Abruptly, earnestly, with his wholoe soul
in his voice and eyes, lie said :

said, in a very low voice.

She did not toll hinm It was to hide her

"Blut, Jennie," Fannie asked, when she
and Tom joined the lovers somec time later,

If you hind in Switzerlanet the St. Golh
ard mountain, where the Rhine takes its
soturce, amI follow that. beautiful river ias it
enters the Lake of Constance, crosses it,
and coming out at the opposite end, forms
a large cataract at, ShialThausen, you will
see it continues its westward course till it
vomes to 1asle, and then turns suddenly
northward. On this part of the river orn
the right-hand side, you will find the Bslack
Forest. It is called black hecause the trees
which compose it, mostly pilnes, grow Very
close together, and their thick foliage shumts
out. the sunlight.
From the Rhine, the forest rises gradu
ally; after some tihe 3o1 come out on a
glassy plateau where you cannot see any
trees at all, and the sunlight seems much
brighter there than elsewhere. On this
plateau 1is a ipretty little town, celebrated
for its anumerous clock factories, and there
most of the pretty cuckoo clocks are made.
Oi one side of the plateau are a few
small villages and towns, and here lived a
great many years ago, al old woium flaed
Mother Elizabeth, with her two grandchild
ren, Ilans and Gretchen. These two
little ones were orphans, and had no other
relation than their aged grandmother, who
wias very poor. So poor, that often they
did not have even dry bread to eat, an1d
were obliged to lie dowin on their st raw
paIllets and try to sleep to forget how hun
gry they were'.
Onle day13, Met' er Ehizabeth en lled her
grandchIldren to heir bedside and tol them
they must w~ork inow or else' they all would
starve. So Hns a stout boy of ten years
of age, and Gretchen who was.elight, start
edi out early every tuormng, pi-ked up dead
wvood, br'okeu It, tied It in hundles, called
fagot s, anid c'ar'riedl it to the neighb~or' ing
town for sale. This was very hard work
for thle cl)hden; thme townx was fari fromi
their home', the paths wvere narrow and slip
peory, and the wood was heavy; hut they
were brave, and loved theIr grandmother
si) dearly that they were willing to work
very hard for her sake.
Soimetihnes, when they were very tired,
they wvould stop to rest on their way to and~
froni town, at ohldOot ilet's hut,. T1hisold mian
was a wood-carver, and miadle clocks, fans,
paptlerknlves, brackets, ornanients and1( toys
ou~t of pIne wooid, lans loved to st and by
his sIde amnd wvat chi hIm carve, and whoa
lie and Grt chien took up thbeir loads again
to continuie t heir way, lhe would tell hIs
sister, If lie only had1( a knife lie was sure'
lhe cotikt learna to carve, too. One line June
morming. GJottlleb overheard hhat saying
this,. and took his pIpe out of lils mouth
just long enough to say.
"Ilans, If youm really want to learn, andio
are wIlling to conme here two hour's every
(lay, I will teach you howv to carve and~ gIve
you a knif'e."
"WIcill you?" cried Hans. "'Oh, thank
yout, Gottlelbl -You arc very kind. I wIll
come In the morninig. Perhaos whieni I
aum a man I will carve well, and wIll be
able to sell my ornaments, and then we
wvon't have to pick up wood."
The next day the wood was quIckly dispos
ed of, and the childerni tripped gayly amonig
the slippery paths, theIr tonmgues waggling
very fast, till they came to Gottlieb's lint;
at the (leer they slipped oli their wooden
clogs and lifting the hatch, walked in.
There under thme window sat Glottieb busi
ly carvIng a euickoo clock; as the children
camne n saying, "Good morning, little oneal
Well, Hans, my boy, I see youi are in earn
est about learning to carve, ad as you
seem eager to set to work we wIll begin at

And good 01(1 Gottlieb laid1 aside his own
work to teach Hans, who did not find It as
easy work as lie thought it would be, Is
knife would slip and cut his fingers, and
often when he rose from his stool his limbs
ached from being kept so long in the saine
position. Btut day after dpy he persevered,
and soon grew; acpteted to htis new
work; in a few weekis he could boast of not

Six or seven years after the Kirkbrlde

graduating lhe ran away to sea, and after
801110 Years' absence, he was picked uip by

Pacific Islands. lie then retirned home,
but about a year later his mind becoming
disordered, lie was sent to Kirkhride's asy

ke pers regarded Ills threats of vengeaniee
upon them a1.s hariiess. One day
ie asked Dr. Kirkbride to allow him to
go to Washmigton to visit some friends, but
the (oto' reftlsed positively.
"All right, sir," the manl replied, "you01
refuse me, alld upon the honior of' a South

Dr. Kirklbride thought little of fIle tireat
and would fake 110 precaution to prevent

thle paltient wasit mlissing fronm the Iayluml,
