I'vg Boon Thinking.
I've been thinking, I've been thinking
What a glorious world were this,
tMd fools mind their business more
And mind tlu.fr neighbors Iosb;
For instance, you and I, my friend,
Are sadly prone to talk
Of dinlters that'concern us no',
And others' follies muck.
J'vo been thinking, If we b -gin
To tuend our own affairs,
That possibly our neighbors might
Contrive to manage theirs.
We've faults enough at home to mend,
It may be so of o'hers;
It would scent st tauge if it were not,
Since all mankind are brothel's.
Oil! would that we had charity
For every man and woman !
Forgiveness is the mark of those
Who know 'po err ia human."
Then let us banish jealousy?
Let's lift our fallen brother;
And uk Wo journey down life's road,
Do go^d to one another.
Yellow Fever Subscriptions.
The New York Sun 1ms tabulated,
so far as it was in possession of data,
the subscriptions from all sources to
the yellow fever fund. The figures
are interesting as a proof of the ?i le
spread sympathy felt for the South
during its period of ullliction. We
copy the Sun's statement, premising
that it excludes all private and socie
ty donations, of which there were
many the public were never advised :
New Yoik. $395.000
Hartford ... .0,000
Little Rock . . . 7,000
Patterson, N. J. . . 5,500
Wilmington . . . 5,000
Wheeling .... 5,000
Trenton .... 5,000
Albany .... 5,000
Rochester . . . . 1,000
Portland *. 4.000
Worccstor - . . 4,000
A great many other places contrib
uted smaller amounts, which arc not
put in the statement.
The Kansas Pacific Times records
the following curious occurrence to a
passenger train of the Kansas Pacific :
The train was Hearing Topekn, and
being a little late was making extra
lime. Suddenly the engineer felt a
j.tr and slacked up his engine slowly
and finally slopped. On going back
to 3ce what the trouble was, he was
surprised to find the sleeper and one
passenger conch close to the engine
tender, and mail and baggage car to
gether with the other coach missing.
Search was at once made, and the
missing part of the train was found a
few hundred yards back. The pas
senger coach had stayed in its ordina
ry position running out oil the prairie
a short way. The baggage tied mail
cars were somewhat tumbled up, but
no other particular damage done. No
person was seriously hurt except the
news agent, who h:ul his nose broken
and face badly cut. On examination
of the track, about nine feet of tail
was missing, a short distance from
where Haid ridge first fell the jar, and
DO doubt this was done by the engine
passing over, and when the baggage,
mail car and coach came along they
jumped the track on to the prarie,
letting the other cuts come on, and
they passed over safely. 11 is cer
tainly one of the most extraordinary
incidents or accidents in railroad
t ravel that perhaps has ever occurred.
A certain doctor struck wil.li the
large number of bojs under fifteen
\enrs of age whom lie observed smok
ing, was lead to inquire into the ef
fect the habit had upon the general
health. lie took for his purpose
thirty-eight boys, aged from nine to
liftcen and carefully examined them ;
in twenty-seven of them he iliscovcr
od injurious traces of the habit. In
twenty-two there were various disor
ders of the circulation and digestion,
palpitation of the heart, and a more
less marked taste for strong drink.
In twelve there was frequent bleed
ing of the nose, ten had disturbed
sleep,, and twelve had slight ulcera
tion of the mucuous membrane of tbo
mouth, which disappeared on ceasing
from the use of tobacco for some
days. The doctor treated them all
for weakness,, but with little effect
until the smoking was discontinued,
.when health and strength were; soon
rcsloied. Now, this is no idle news
paper tale, as these facts arc given
under the authority of the British
A iYlodol Confession.
Sevcr?I years ago, in a Western ;
town, a young lawyer, a member of aj
huge elm re] i, got drunk. The bveth
reu said he must confess. He demur
red, lie knew the members to lie
good people, but that they had their
little faults, such as driving sharp
j bargains, screwing the laborer down
to low wages, loaning money at ille*|
j gal rates, misrepresenting article a
they had for sale, &c. I3ut limy were
good people, and pressed the lawyer
to come before the church meeting
and own up his sin of taking a glass
too much, for they were a temperance
people and abhorred intemperance.
The sinner finally went to confes
sion, found a large gathering of
brethren and sisters, whose bowed
heads lose and whose eyes glistened
with pure delight as the lawyer began
his confessiou : "I confers," said he,
' tl'.at I never took ten per cent, for
money." On that confession down
went a brother's bead with a groan.
"I nev^cr turned a man from my door
who needed food and .shelter." Down
went another head. 4 I confess I
never sold a skiin-milk cheese for a
new one," whereupon a sister shriek
ed for mercy. **lint," concluded the
sinner,44! have been drunk and am
sorry for it." Whereupon the meet
ing very peacefully dispersed.
Words ot Wisdom.
Truth is an immortal flower, and
can liexc die.
The measure of choosing well is
whether a man likes what he has
Hide not the truth when ye know
it, and clothe not the truth with false
Our greatest glory consists not in
never falling, but in rising every
time we fall. i
The waj to gain a good reputation
is to endeavor to be what you desire
Every event that a man would
master must lie mounted on the run,
and no man ever caught the reins of
a thought, except as it galloped by
Brava heart, arise ! Be free from
every chain, though it be glittering
with gold! Be nobly coragcous!
Follow the true bride of thy life, even
if her name be Sorrow. Let the shell
perish,-that the pearl may appear.
When Dr. Beadon was Rector of
Ellham, in Kent, England, the text
he undertook to preach from was,
4*Who art thouV* After reading the
text, lie made (as was his custom) a
pause, for the congregation to rellect
upon his words ; when a gentleman
in military dress, who at the instant
was marching very sedately up the
middle aisle of the Church, supposing
it a question addressed to him, to thej
surprise of all present replied, ikI ami
sir. an ofllccr of the sixteenth icgi-i
merit of fool, on a recruiting party
here; and having brought my wife
and family with me, 1 wish to bo. ac
quainled with the neighboring clergy
ami gentry." This so deranged the
congregation, that though they at
tempted to listen with decorum, the
discourse was not proceeded with
without considerable dillieully.
