Ay, ?eil the old horse, if you will;
For he Is brokeu down
And weak with years?why cai e for that ?
There's plenty in tho town
To take his place, to do his work,
To go tho paco ho wont
By day or night, or rain or shine,
Until his strength was spent.
He never stopped to reason why,
To ask that this bo dono,
Or that; ho knowhis duty.
He dld/lt on tho run.
He sor/od hlB master as ho host
Enow how to servo?and now
Goselfhim; he Is loyal and
, 'YTtK^not ask why, or how.
A horse Is not a sentiment;
He cannot think or speak
Or vote; then why protect him when
He's worthless, old, and weak '<
For him no starry banner tloats
On ovory broozo that blows ;
For him no pension comforts come
When years his labors closo.
Ay, soli tho old horse, if you will,
Ho will not ask you why.
Nor make complaint, whon ho is turned
Adrift to sturvo and die;
But faithful in his labors still,
As when they woro begun,
Ho will not caro; lie is content
With duty bravely done.

MISS PRITCHARD, GOSSIP.
UY KATE 8. GATES.
" Evorybody In Bolton know Miss
Pritchard ; but thon, for that matter,
overybody know ovorybody In Belton.
Still, there was adilferonco In tho way
they felt toward one another.
"There is no such thing as having a
secret In this town," Mrs. Procter, tho
doctor's wife, said onco; "at least not
while Miss Pritchard livos."
Poor Miss Pritchard 1 nobody lovod
her nor had a good word for her.
How could they r Didn't she spond
hor whole time gathering ovory bit of
gossip thoro was,' and thon sproudiug
.?widely U3 she could ? Was sho
over happier than when going tho
rounds of tho stroot with some ovil
" If sho actually could not Ilud any
thing to toll, I am not suro but she
would die," said Mrs. Proctor, l^>*^h
ingly. " You see shvhasn't any? .mr

wouldn't havo time to observe how

Mrs. Hatch punlshos horotep-ohlldrcn.
?;-*Jwonder4 sometimes, what tho oiToct
would be if sho had somobody thrust
upon her to oare for. Sho hasn't as
muoh as a chickon now."
It was not long after Mrs. Procter
said this that things bogan to happen
to Miss Pritchard.
In the lirst plaoo, one morning, whon
she opened hor door, she found tho
most forlou spocimon of a dog on hor
door-stop. Ho was tho poorest,
scrawniest creature you could imag
ine, and was llterolly almodt starved
Miss Pritchard triod todrivo him off,
but ho would not go, perhaps becauso
ho had not tho strength. Anyway, ho
looked up into hor face bosceohingly,
and tried to wag his tall as though ho
had perfect confidence in hor benevo
Miss Pritchard hosltatod. Sho
stamped her foot and bado him "go
along," buL he only looked up more
imploringly, if possible, tbun before.
8he stooped and picked him up, and
hesitated again. Should sho put him
forcibly outside tho gate, or take him
in ? The dog licked hor hand foebly,
and a momont lator sho wont ? lu with
11 i nt still in hor arms.
" I'll feed him," sho said to horsolf;
M if I don't ho will haunt mo, I do be
lieve. One would think ho was a hu
man being, to see him look at mo.
But why no should come to my door
is more than I can soo. It would havo
been muoh moro sensible In him to
have gono across tho street to Auntie
Groen'B. She is always doing some
thing for somobody or other, and tho
whole jtojvn is silly as can bo over her.
F? '?. 7"*- T don't caro to bo ' Aunt

And so it happened tbat for nearly
two weeks she aid not see a person to
speak to but Dr. Procter ana Maggio
? Kane, who came in to do up the work
1 and wait on her.
At first her mind was pretty well
taken up with her pain, but as that
grew less acute sho longed for a chat
with a neighbor.. Day after day sho
watched and waited,
u n Pretty Christians thoy all are," she
said bitterly to horsolf, "not to come
near a sick nolghbor. If it wus Auntlo
Green, now, the house would be full
all tho time, Pvo no doubt."
Ono' afternoon Miss Pritchard had
hor 9hair up by the window, and sat
peeping through the shutter*, hoping
some one would come.
i .du Tumor and Hatty Graves camo
down street together.
*' We ought to go in and see Miss
Pritchard, sho is slok," said Hatty,
just as they got In front of the house.
" I should think you had," muttered
tho unsoon listener behind the blinds.
"Oh, doar!" answered Lou, "I
know wo ought, but I don't want to.
She Is so dlsagroeable. and sho would
be suro to got something out of us to
gossip about. She has nobody but her
self to blamo if folks can't hear her."
On thoy wont, utterly unconscious of
poor MiB8 Pritcliard. left behind with
a pain and loneliness harder to bear
than the rhoumatlsm had been.
" Nobody docs love mo," sho thought
as sho moved away from the window,
foarful of hearing somothing else disa
greeblo. " Nobody lovos mo, and I
am getting old, and perhaps I'll havo
tho rheumatism or somothing olso most
of the tlmo, and no one will como
noar, and?I don't know but I'd about
as soon dlo now as any other time."
Miss Pritchard was weak and nerv
ous, and sho did somothing sho had
not dono for yoars?she broke down
and orled as If nor heart would break.
Jack Boomod to fool that somothing
was wrong, and jumpod up on the arm
of her chair, and kitty, awakened
from hor nap, sprang up In hor lap.'
"I've got you two, anyway," sobbed
Miss Pritchard, patting tho cut. aud
cuddling Jack up to her, and'lottlng
hor tours rain down on thom both.
"I've got?you two?and I guess?it's
all?I have got."
Mrs. Proctor, coming in a fow miu
utes later, found them so.
"What is tho mattor?" sho ox
" I'm so lonosome?nobody's boon
noar mo?I havon't a friend in tho
world?but this cat and dog. Lou
Turnor says I'm?a dhjagreoaolo old
thing?and nobody lovos me," an
eworod Miss Pritchard, hysterically.
"Thon go right to work and mako
us lovo you," roplied Mrs. Prootor,
promptly. " My doar Miss Pritchard,
don't vou think you havo been a llttlo

somehow I got in the habit of liking n>

I have boon just what Lou mid I was,
a disagrocablo old thing. Hut?I
don't really think I have told so much
since, 1 had .lack and pussio."
" Noithor do 1," roplied tho doctor's
wifo. "Thoy have taken up your
mind, you soo, and you havo not had
so much timo to think what other peo

in our hoarts, and if wc fill them up

that is worthless and harmful is
crowdod out, don't you see ?M
All Bolton hold its hands up in as
tonishment when it was rumored a
few wooks later that Miss Pritchard
had adopted a littlo girl whoso par
ents had just died.
"Why not? asked tho irroprossiblo
Mrs. Proctor. " She is comfortably

"Oh, yes," put in tho doctor, "but
sho will bo Miss Pritchard to tbo end

"That remains to bo soon. Sho

dog and cat had just worked their way

TPE CHAMPION COTTON CHOP.
Twenty-One Hairs- of Cotton Pro
duced on t \\cU<- Acres of Land.
To tbo Kditor of The News and Courier:
Ab many Inquiries havo boon mado
to mo concerning my crop of jcotton
made last year, aud as I am always
glad that others may profit by my suc
cess or failure, I havo decldod to put a
statement of tho same in tho columns
of your valuable paper for tho beuetlt
of all who are Interested.
Tbo twelvo acres of land from which
I gathered tho twenty-ono bales sf cot
ton, averaging four hundred aud fifty
one pounds, last year, is a part of a
tract of land formerly consisting of
thirty-two acres. Whon I commenced
farming on It sovoral years ago I sup
pose it would grow not moro than six
hundred pounds of Sood cotton per
acre. I divided it into tracts of six
toou acres, and at once l comuioncod
a rotation of crops, viz, the first cot
ton, followed by oats, then pens, thon
cotton again, always and on y ma
nuring the cotton crop with a compost
consisting of stable manure, cotton
sood, acid aud kaintt, until I bad work
ed it up to producing very easily with
ordinary soasons a halo poraoio. Of
this land I only bail tho twelve acres

other fertilizer being used, except one
aero on which I used a sack of soluble
guano, the stable niannre supply being

upon this as soon us possible It was
about the 16th of March. I linisbod
the entire preparation of tho land
about the iuu Te of April and coin
nionoed planting about tbo 20th of tho
month. Seed used wus what I had
boon improving for several years, now
known as '"White's improved."
Tho rows averaged three aud a half
foot, tho cotton belttg moro or less of
tho cluster variety ; wider rows was
not necessary. Knrly maturity and
fruiting from top to bottom is a char
acteristic feature of the seed used.
I had a pretty fair stand on ail of it
except one acre which hit 1 some skips.
We had very little rain from tho tinio
of planting until the let of July, but
enough for the cotton to como up and
grow slowly, consequently bad very lit
tlo trouble with grass. Only ono booing
was necessary, except chopping out
bunches of grass after laying by tho
crop with tho plough. Tho rains be
