THE OLD MAN SINGS.
There's a wobble in tiie Jingle and a stumbc- In the mi tor, And the acc-nt might be clcurcr and the volume b« completer, And then might bo much improvement in the stress and Intonation, And a polish alight be added to the crude pro nunciation But there's music, like the harper played before the ancient kings, When the old man takrs the fiddle a.vl goes fecliaj fnr the strings There ii laughter choked with t»nr Uroio when the old man sings. Ami we form a rin,^ about htn., an 1 -replace hltn in the middle. And he imps up to his withered cheek the poor, old broken fiddle. Ami a smile conies on his features as he hears the strings' vibration, Atid he sin rs the songs of long ago With ti:pr intonation T. falter- And phantoms from the distant past hi* broken music bring*. An 1 trooping from their dusty praves come long-forgotten thlnjjs, V.'h n he tunes the ancient (!.!::• and the old man slags. "VVe let the broken man play en upon the broken fiddle, An 1 we press around to hear him, as he sits there in the middle iou id of many wedding bells In all the music surges Then we hear their clamor snjothi n by the sound of funeral dirges. *TU the story of his life time that in the i:iu»i« rings— And every life's a blind man's tune that's played on broken strings— A n 1 -io »e sit in silence while the old man sings. —S. W. Fosa, in Yankee lilada THE OLD CABINET. It Brought Good Fortune to Two Lonely Hearts. "I dure say it's a groat curiosity," said Mrs. Minden, carelessly "but I never did fancy these quaint old odds and ends of creation, and I didn't bar pain to have my houses turned into a storage-place for Undo Zadoc's old rattle-traps. So I ordered it sent to the second-hand dealer's establishment this morning. IIo allowed mo five dollars for it! And, really," added tho lady, with a laugh, "I think 1 should have been tempted, if better terms could not have been made, to pay the dealer five dollars for removing it from the prem ises." Mr. Blinder looked up from behind tho closely-printed columns of the daily paper. "And if your Cnelo Zadoc inquires after it?" said he. "Because it will hardly do to offend the old gentleman." "Old we'll toll him it all fell to pieces," said Mrs. Minden, calmly. "Ten to one he'll never think of it a^ain!" And Mrs Minden replaced the old teak wood cabinet with a modern chif fon ur, inlaid with china tiles, and glit tering with brass ornaments, and con gratulated herself on getting rid of Undo Zadoc Johnson's "old trash." "Oh, mamma," cried Beatrico Field, coming in one day from currying homo a roll of embroidered satin to the shop for which she worked, "I saw such a lorey old Indian cabinet in Leckwood's second-hand store as I passed by! It was marked 'I* ifteen dollars.' Mamma, it would brighten up our dim little par lor like a bit of the Orient!" Mrs. Field, a thin little woman, sighed as she saw the sparkle in Beat rice's eyes. "But, Bee," said she, "fifteen dollars! How are we, with our narrow means, ever to compass fifteen dollars'?" "Ah! but you don't understand, mam ma!" cried triumphant Bee. "Mary Leek wood says I may have it for ten, if 1 will help her make her dress for tho military ball! So, if you don't think it too extravagant, mamma, dear—" "Have your own way, my child," said tho littlo widow, with a sigh. "You *ro tho support of the family it would be hard, indeed, to deny you a little in dulgence now and then." So tho teak wood cabinet was set up in Mrs. Field's humble littlo parlor, whore it became the delight of Bee's heart. "I could fancy all sorts of delightful mysteries out of the 'Arabian Nights,' when I sit here and look at its carved corners and odd, twisted doors." said she. "I'm sure there's a secret drawer in it somewhere, although I never have been able to find it. It shall bo our household idol, mamma, and I'm quite, quite sure that it will bring us good luck." "I fear that nothing will ever do that," said poor little Mrs. Field, sigh 'ing. And, although the remark sounded extreme, yet there had been a concat enation of circumstances in Mrs. Field's life to justify it. When Boatrico was yet an infant, her husband, a soa cap tain, sailing between the ports of Bom bay and Now York, by way of tho Lon don docks, was lost at sea. Tho guar dian of her littlo fortune proved un worthy of the trust, and decamped, leaving her penniless and since then existence had been one of continual struggle, until Beatrice, growing up, hud developed an unusual taste for tho fine artistic needlework which was just then coming into fashion, and had vir tually taken the support of tho family into her own hands. And in her delight at this new acquis ition, Beatrice told its history to old Captain Burton, a sick lodger on tho boor above, to whom she sometimes car ried iced coffee, white grapes, little odds and ends of luxury. "For ho is so poor," reasoned gener ous littlo Beo. "And he has no friends!" One day, however, when Beo tripped lightly up with a plato of cream puffs which she herself had manufactured, she saw a brown-skinned, wrinkled little old man sitting at Captain Bur ton's bedside. "Lli?' said ho. "Ah! So you aro the .littlo guardian angel, are you?" "I am Boatrico Field," said .our hero ine, coloring up. "And 1 did not know that Captain Burton had company, or—" "Oil! I'm not company," chuckled the littlo brown man. "Pin only Zadoc Johnson. I'm Ben Burton's second cousin, and I've boon looking for him these six months. 2VW, by the merest chanco in tho world. I've found him. And 1 have to thank you. Miss Beatrice, for all the disinterested kindness you have shown him." "At least, It "It wasn't I," said Bee. wasn't al mo -mamma—' lako me down to your mamma at once," said Mr. Johnson. "I'veahavy debt of gratitude to pay her. I've only one cousin, Ben Burton, and ha might have died if it hadn't boon for you two kind ladies." lie pulled out his purse on the way down-stairs. If there s any iif this debt that money can pay—" ho hut Beatrice made a deprecatory movement. "Please don't talk of money," said she. "There is nothing wo have done which Captain Burton would not have done for us had our position been reversed And—" "Hallo!" ejaculated Mr. Zadoc John son, as Beatrice opened the door of tho little family sitting-room at that mo ment. "/fal-lal Where on earth did you get that old cabinet of teak wood?'' "We bought it at the second-hand store," said Beatrice. "Isa't it beauti ful!" "Its mine!" said Zadoc Johnson. "How can it bo yours." indignantly cross-questioned Beo, "when I bought it and paid for it, my very own self?" "This is very strange," said Zadoc, "1 think so. too," said Boatrico. And then Mrs. Field came in, and the eccentric old gentleman was presented to tier. "Madam," Said Mr. Johnson, "I thank vou and your daughter for your kindness to my cousin Benjamin Bur ton." Mrs. Field colored, and grew pale, as shy as a girl, as she murmured a word or two of acknowledgement. "It is my belief," said Zadoc, "that your attention and caro have saved his life." And then, abruptly dismissing the subject, ho walked up to tho old cabi net, opened its doors, sniifod its sweet, faint scent, and, turning to Bee, ho de manded: "What will you sell mo this piece of furniture for?" "It isn't for sale," said Bee, almost ready to cry. "It is my birthday gift to mamma." "Well, well, little girl, don't fret," said Mr. Johnson, good-humoredly. "It used to belong to me, and I've rather a notion for it. But you shall not bo teased if you don't choose to part with it. Good-bye, ma'atn. Good-bye, little girl." And with this cheerful leave-taking he departed. Mrs. Minden was elegantly dressed in heliotrope-colored satin and Chantilly lace, when Uncle Zadoc presented him self. It was her "at home" day, and she took pride in her toilets. But when, instead of General do Linos, or Mr. Bonnefeuilles, or any other of those glasses cf fashion and molds of form. Uncle Zadoc Johnson made his appear ance, sho turned pale. "Good-day, Niece Amelia," said tho eccentric old gentleman. "I've come to look at my toakwood cabinet." "it's sent away to be mended," gasped Mrs. Minden. "That's a falsehood!" said Uncle Zadoc. "You felt yourself too fine to bo hampered with my old-fashioned furniture, and you sold it to tho old dealer, Leek wood, for five dollaia. 'Love mo, lovo my dog,' says tho proverb. 'Love me, love my old cabinet,' say I. I daro say I'm not good enough for you, now you'vo grown to bo such an elegant city lady so good-bye!" Out walked Uncle Zadoc before Mrs. Minden could collect her senses to stay him. What curious whim urged the old bachelor no one ever knew, but instead of retaining his luxurious quarters at tho St. Barbo Hotel, Mr. Johnson ou gaged a room in tho tenement-house where his second cousin, Captain Ben Burton, lived. "I like the kind of people I meet here,"said he, briefly. And at tho end of a month he pee*' sen ted himself before Mrs. Field. "Madam," said he, "I liko you. What is more, i respect you. I want my old cabinet, and I should liko to have a fathers right in your littlo Beatrico. Wo aro neither of us young, but there's nothing to prevent our being happy. Will you marry me?" Mrs. Field looked really pretty as the pink blushes mantled her delicate faco. "Oh, Mr. Johnson!" said she. "I can hardly believe you mean it." "Send for a parson, ma'am, and you will soon find out whether I do or not," said Zadoc Johnson. So they were quietly married, to Bee's infinite delight. "He's just the sort of step-father 1 should liko," said she, gleefully. Once wedded, old Zadoc Johnson took an elegant house, furnished it in prince ly fashion, set the teak wood cabinet in tho best parlor, and invited Captain Ben Burton to live with them always. Mrs. Zadoc Johnson was serenely happy, and Beatrico exultant. As for tho captain, he chuckled. "Zadoc Johnson never did do any thing by halves," said ho. And when Mr. .Minden saw tho notice of the marriage in tho daily papers, ho swore a prodigious imprecation. "It's all your fault, Amelia," said ho. "If you never had sold that teak wood cabinet, all this wouldn't havo hap pened!" "You always did lay the blame ol every thing on me!" whimpered Mrs. Minden. Anny Randolph, in JN Y Ledger.

Mbtorfusrc by Which ll« Contrived t.» i Away !rom u 1'riioii Colony. Mr. F. Ordinaire recently returne i rom a long sojourn in New Calodoni-. he big island in the Pacific to whi*u several thousand French criminals have een transported for their country's food. It is a mistake, however, to sup Jose that many of these convicts spend heir lives drudging away behind prison •vails. If they behave themselves and lo not try to escape they are in time per it-tod to enjoy a good deal of liberty.live n cottages of their own outside the pris ms, marry female convicts, and acquire riore or loss property. While in New Caledonia Mr. Ordinaire met a beautiful v'oung French woman and her husband. 1 hey lived in good style, entertained aim bandsom -ly, and, as they were not •onvicis, their guest was curious to unow how it happened that they were living in such an out of the wav part of itie world. They satisfied his curiosity, and later he heard the storv they told him from the I-.. a i to* on tin island. About twenty year- a" a wealth'. I' reni'hman named Lamy was condemned to life imprisonment, in New Caledonia. It had been discovered that he had suc cessively poisoned two legitimate wives, and the public sentiment was that he was very lucky to save his head. His s-ntence was that he should bo kept at hard labor. It happened, however, that in his now home, being far away from the French court that trird him. he was not confined very long in tho prison i invisible gang, and gradually trained many privil eges. Mr. Ordinaire hints that Liimy's money was influential in making con vict life easy and comfortable for him. At the end of ten years the wife poisoner was as free as any one could be who was not permitted to go anywhere he pleased. He wandered at will among the settlements of New Caledonia. I bought property in Noumea, the chief town of tin island, and started a ranch on which before long he had two thou|leiuon, sand head of cattle. He had other busi ness irons in the fire, and enjoyed ail the privileges of a free colonist, except that, he could not quit tho i-land. v.! he had been condemned t. per e exile. But, of course, the thing he most de sired was the complete freedom that was dr-niea him. In spite of his fort unit arid the comparative comfort be enjoyed, Lamy made up his mind to go back to Lurope if he could get there. One day he went to Noumea, wearing a very lugubrious face, and toid the Governor of the Penitentiary Adminis tration that the climate was situ ply kil ling him if he did not have a change of air lie would die. He bogged for per mission to spend six months in Sydney on account of bis shattered health. It is hinted that sympathy did not move the penitentiary authorities half so much as tho gold which is capable of working miracles. A privilege that had never boon extended to a prisoner on tho island before was accorded to Lamy. He obtained permission to seek a change of air, and openly embarked for Austra lia on a French ste^tner, buying the best accomodations the vessel provided. Lamy was now really a fugitive, for he had not the slightest intention of re turning again to New Caledonia. It did not take him long to discover that the Sydney air was not sufficiently curative, and he accordingly took passage upon one of tho San Francisco steamers, crossed North America, and embarked from Now York for Europe. A few months after Lamy should have reappeared in New Caledonia .his son and daughter-in-law, the young people who so handsomely entertained Mr. Ordi naire. appeared on the scene. They were equiiiped with full powers to dispose of his property on the island, and they settled in one of their father's houses and proceeded leisurely to realize upon the lands, houses, forests and herds of their parent. At last accounts he still reposing from his adventures in a country bordering upon Franco.— N Y Sun. MILLIONS OF STOCKINGS. Twelve Manure.I Thousand Km li llay. I was told recently by one of the prominent hosiery merchants that the proiluction of seamles.s hose in this country was about 100,000 dozen pairs daily, says the New York correspondent of the Washington Star. This seems incredible, and yet my informant is a man of wide and accurate know ledge of the trade. A daily production of 1,800,000 pairs of stockings would moan 7,000.0 )0 pairs each working week or :i:.(i,000,(i0u pairs a year, an average of five pairs to each man. woman, child, bedridden invalid and pickaninny in the land. And this covers only one class of stockings, though probably the most numerous one. Of course, the bulk is of the cheapest qualities, those that sell in the trade for ."0 cents a dozen and there abouts. But how aro thoy used, and where do thov go'.' It is almost as deep a problem as the death and tho future life of the pin. These statistics throw a strong light on the gigantic dimen sions of the clothing trades. Wo scarcely put hosiery and underwear among the important divisions of dry goods, and yet the transactions are be yond the scope of an ordinary imagina tion. A few weeks ago a company of dealers representing the importing side of tin trade alone gathered to confe/ on how best to protect their interests before Congress, and a rough computation of the capital represented by the houses that then joined in action gavo the Stupendous total of $000,00.1,000. How to Hmoke a Cigar, An old smoker says: Never cut off the end of the cigar nor chew itc if while smoking. It is a vulgar habit, besides being mischievous. Three or four small holes made half an inch from the end of the cigar will allow the exit of the smoke, while at the same time the stub of the cigar catches and holds the nico tine, which is tho injurious product of the smoke, especially to nervous poop.1e. A cigar should be smoked slowly and should be lighted e~ -**nly. In cas o"io side of the cigar sht nld burn and leave a ragged edge on the other side it is not necessary to relight. A gentle blow through the cigar toward the lighted end will ignite the ragged side and it will burn ro^ularly.

Tho glance had been brief, but sufficient to assure me that what I had heard was no myth, and, as the people dispersed, I ob served that the garments of many were also stained with blood. This was not the only unfortunate animal that was sacrificed that day in the solf-same manner, for these unbridled lunatics continued their horrid progress through the whole town, repeating their mad dances every hundred yards, and on other occasions an offering of the like kind was provided for them.
