CHAPTER I.
In the village of C , in the state
of Pennsylvania, there stood, at the
time our story opens, a small frame
house of dilapidated appearance. Al
though it was inhabited, nothing in
the exterior appearance would impress
the casual observer with this fact. The
lawn in front was overgrown with
weeds, even so dense 03 to obstruct the
entrance. Going into the cabin, one
wai made to feel the utter loneliness of
the dwelling and its inmates. In one
corner stood what was once a table.
In the opposite a bed with scanty cov
ering and the centre of the room was
taken up by a couple of rude chairs
which had seen better days. One was
occupied by a boy, a lad of seventeen
years, and the hero of our story, a bright
intelligent countenance, clear eyes, in
which one could read determination
and a resolution to do what he under
took, and do it well. The other, one
was occupied by a woman, a mere
wreck of her former self, and one
might see by her countenance that she
had lost all care for the future of her
self and her son. The silence, which
had lasted for some time, was at last
broken by the son.
"Mother," he said, looking up rather
quickly from his tattered and apparent
ly well read book.
"Well, what is wanted now? Some
new whim I suppose has got into your
head."
"No, mother, not that, but "
"13 ut what?" said his mother, rather
napishly.
"Well, to tell the truth, I am tired
of this humdrum kind of life, and am
going to start in the world for my
self." "And fail, as such rattleheaded boys
do sooner or later. I tell you, Charley,
the best way to do is to stay at home
and help your father in the shop, and
learn the trade."
"0 fudge on the trade! a cooper.
Why, mother, father has worked at it
all his life and now he is no better off
than when he began, nor as well. I
am going to go to California and dig
my fortune out of the ground!"
So saying, he took Lis hat and left
the house. As he passed out of the
yard, he met Squire Williams, a very
wealthy man in the place, and accosted
him with:
"Good morning, Mr. Williams; this
is a pleasant morning."
"Very," replied the Squire, looking
down at the pleasant countenance of
the lad. "How is Mr. Terry, your
father, this morning? "
"0 as well m can be expected for
one that confines himself to a shop all
the time. For my part, I want the
clear open air to live in."
"How would you like to come and
live with me on the farm?" asked the
Squire.
"First rate, if you think you would
like me well enough to give me a trial."
Well, come over to-morrow and we
will begin."
"All right;" and elated by the thought
of earning his own livelihood,he hurried
on to tha shop to acquaint his father
with his good luck. Entering the shop
he told his father of the proposal the
Squire had made, and asked his opinion
of it.
"A good chance for you," said his
father. "When do you go to work?"
"To-morrow."
"Well, I hope you will try and do as
well as ycu can. Only gain the Squire's
good will and keep it and then you
will get along all right."
"I mean to try and do all that I can
to please him," said Charles, and he
left the shop.
CHAPTER IL
According U his promise, Charles was
at the 'Squire's early the next morning,
ready to go to work ; and from that
time forward, for the next three years,
he performed his labors so well that the
old 'Squire, although a man of strict
principles, reposed strict confidence in
him, even so far as to leave entirely to
him the whole control of his vast estate.
In fact, he was the overseer of all the
farming part of the business ; and so
well was the duty performed that the
people of the surrounding country were
heard to say that the Squire was get
ting wealthy from the big improve
ments made by Charley Perry, "The
Boy Farmer," as he was known by the
villagers.
"When he had been there three years
an Incident occurred which upset his
plans for life.
The 'Squire had an only daughter a
blithe, young creature, with step like
the bounding fawn, eyes like the gazelle.
hair of a clear golden brown, and a
form faultless in tbe extreme, and an
expression in her countenance that be
tokened amiability and good temper.
Mabel Williams had been reared in
opulence, but she was, nevertheless, a
good, amiable, and affectionate daugh
ter, and obedience to her father was the
first law of her nature. Her mother
had been dead a score of years, and Ma
bel could not recollect of ever having
seen her, so that she had not had the
advantage of a mother's advice. There
fore, she went to her father for council
in all matters wherein she needed it.
She and Charles formed for one
another an early attachment, albeit one
was ignorant of the other's feelings.
Upon one occasion she and Charley
had been for a ride in the carriage, and
were returning home. Charley thought
he had lived in suspense long enough,
and broached the subject next his heart
lie told her how he had learned to love
her by being in her company for the
last three years, and also how he had
striven to gain the confidence of her
father that he might be near her, and
have the pleasure of her company each
day. She in return admitted that he
had won her love, but told him that in
order to become his wife she must ob
tain her father's consent. This Charles
was afraid would be no easy task, as it
subsequently proved; but they rode
home in hopes that it might be obtain
ed and that two loving hearts might
be permitted to enjoy the society of the
other. But they were to be disappoint
ed in this, for when Mable with her
arms around her father's neck, told
him of their affection for each
other he stormed and swore by turns,
and finally ended by discharging Char
ley forthwith. And poor Charley was
obliged to depart from the place that
had become a paradise to him in tne
last degree. But he was undaunted.
He resolved to go to California at once,
and told Mable of his resolve. She
could do no more than to wiah him
success in his undertaking and bid him
good-by with tears in her eyes, and a
farewell clasp of the hand.
"Hemember me, she said, "when
you are far away; and perhaps some
day we may meet again under more
favorable auspices than now; and above
all be true to me. For my part I will
be as true to you as the robbin in yon
der elm to his mate."
Charles gave her his promise, and
pressing on her lips a kiss he left her
to seek his fortune.
CHAPTER III.
We will pass over the next three
years and visit the estate of the once
wealthy Squire. As we near the gate
way we perceive a large concourse of
people gathered at the entrance. In
quiring the cause, we are told the
Squire is dead had committed suicide
in the night, and the inquest is being
held to-day. We pass into the house
and on to the room occupied by the
Squire, and gaze on the last remains of
the once opulent farmer.
'Can it be, says one, "that the Squire
was financially embarrassed that caus
ed him to commit the rash act?"
This and other conjectures were the
subject of conversation by the villagers,
but time and a thorough investigation
of his affairs only could answer. A
week passed by, and all conjectures
were set at rest by the announcement
in the daily papers that the Squire had
died insolvent and that it would take
all his vast estate to pay his liabilities.
The farm must go, and the once proud
daughter Mabel would be a homeless
and penniless wanderer on the earth;
for of kindred she had none, except an
aged aunt, and anything but good feel
ings existed between them at this time.
Mabel, since her father s death, had
busied herself with gathering together
various little articles mementoes of
her own and her father's and now
that that was done she began to reflect
on her past life, especially on the last
few years. Naturally her thoughts re
verted to the time that she parted with
Charles Perry. Oh, if he were here
now he would sympathize with her and
be her friend in this hour of affliction,
but she had the burden to bear alone.
Weeks rolled on, and the day of the
sale that was to deprive her of all she
held as her own, drew near, and she
busied herself with making ready for
her departure to-morrow.
"This," said she to herself, "drives
me from the last place I can call my
home"
The day came at last and the estate
had been looked over by men who had
an eye to the value of it.
The very hour had come that was to
see it in the possession of another, when
a horseman was seen to ride up to the
gate, dismount, and approach the
house. He was a tall, finely-built, mus
cular man, and had evidently been ex
posed to hardships, the extent of which
his hardened hands and bronzed com
plexion could give the beholder a very
good laea. lie iooKea aoouc mm a
few moments, and at last approached
the auctioneer who had already began
his work. Already had the bidding be
gun to lag, one man, a lawyer, being
the only one that seemed to want to
pay anywhere near the value of the
estate, and he had only offered $8,000
about one-half the value. The auc
tioneer was about to strike it off to him
wnen "fiz,wu' was heard to come
from the vicinity of the stranger, and a
run was the consequence. Up, up, un
til it reached the enormous sum of
$20,000, when it was struck off to the
stranger. He immediately entered the
house and was met by Mabel who
handed him the keys.
"No; said he, in a clear, manly
voice, "not yet. I wish you to stay till
to-morrow, and then I will take pos
session.
He then returned to the village, got
the deeds made and paid for the estate.
and the old magistrate of the village
said in the presence of several of the
villagers that he paia it all in gold, and
all new pieces at that.
The next morning.true to his promise,
he called at the estate to take possession,
but his appearance was altered by the
change that had been made in his ap
parel, and by the application of a razor
to his face. He entered the house
and went to the parlor as if he were
well acquainted with the house. He
met the servant girl and asked her for
her mistress.
"Tell her that I wish to see her In
the parlor if she will please to favor
me with her company."
Presently she came. He met her at
the door.
"Here," said he, "is a paper. I wish
you to read, and I will return In a few
moments and see what you think of
it."
He then passed out the door, but
lingered in the hall.
Presently he heard a smothered ac
clamation in the room he had just left
and on re-entering beheld the young
lady kneeling In the middle of the floor,
sobbing aloud.
Approaching, lie raised her irom we
floor, and applied a glass of water to
her lips.
He then asked her the cause of her
grief.
"Grief I" she replied, "it is for loy
that I weep. But there is one thing
that I do not understand, and that is
why you, a stranger, should have
deigned to buy the estate and get the
deeds drawn in my name."
"Miss Williams, do you not know
me?" he asked.
She looked at him a moment and re
plied: "You have the advantage of
knowing me while you are yec a
stranger to myself."
"Then I will be no longer. L,ez me
see the deeds." She handed them to
him, he withdrew a moment, and soon
returned and handed her them again.
She could hardly keep her footing as
she beheld the change in every place
where the name of the stranger had
appeared as "Charles Hansom" to
Charles Ransom Perry."
It was her old friend and lover
Charley. And so she called him the
first time she -had occasion to ask a
question.
Charley," said she, "what can I ever
do to repay you for the good that you
have done this day?"
By keeping the promise that you
gave me three years ago; he re
plied, and she answered him by
laying her head on his breast and look
ing up into his eyes with a look of the
fullest confidence.
In a short time they were married;
and Charles has been often heard to
say that he was not sorry he gave
120,000 for the old Williams estate.
Modern Surgory.
The latest triumph of modern sur
gery is the repair of a Boston woman
who had fallen seventy feet and broken
her necks. The neck was broken just
as the necks are of culprits who are
hanged on the gallows namely by the
dislocation of the vertebrae. Fortu
nately the spinal marrow was not in
ured or the repairs could not have
been made. Having chloroformed the
poor woman, the physih ans had the
pleasure of hearing the bones and liga
ments snap as they forced the displac
ed vertebiae iuto proper position. The
woman, on awaking, seemed to think
that her head had come off and that it
had been put on crooked. This oper
ation suggests a new field of experiment
on the bodies of executed criminals.
Attempts have frequertly been made,
sometimes with partial succees, to re
store Hfe by means of powerful elec
tric currents. Let the next surgical
experimenters try setting the dislocat
ed neck. It can't do the man much
harm and might set him partially or
wholly to rights. There teems to be
hardly any limit to scientific research.
A Plucky Woman's Reward. The
New York Staats-Zeltung is printed in
a building occupying the site of what
was once the country residence of one
of NewYork's earliest governors Gov.
Tyron. This handsome and stately
structure, built of white granite, is a
monument to the courage, common
sense and indomitable perseverance of
a German lady, whose husband died
several years ago, leaving her a little
newspaper and a family of six children.
She was oilered $500 for the paper, but
would not selL The editor, who had
been in her husband's employ, agreed
to continue at his post, and as he was
well fitted for his work and was not
interfered with in the editorial depart
ment, the little journal began to make
money. Its circulation among the
Germans increased very rapidly, and
the widow found herself growing very
rich. Fearing she might lose the young
man who had been so useful in advanc
ing her fortunes she married him. At
his suggestion, a few years ago, the
present Staats-Zeiting building was
erected at a cost of $300,000. The pa
per is now one of the most valuable
properties in the country; and Oswald
Ottendorfer, still its editor-in-chief, is
one of the leaders of the Germans in
New York, In all political movements.
Mrs. Ottendorfer had educated and
settled in life all her children; but has
not yet relinquished the business con
trol of the Staats-Zeitung. Every
morning at 10 o'clock she is to be seen
in the publication office attending to
the finances, making contracts for
printing paper or presses and giving
orders as to the employment and dis
charge of help in the mechanical de
partments. Every year she gives away
large amounts of money in charities;
and one of her noblest works in this
direction is a "home" for old women,
on which she has already expended
more than $50,000.

THE WHOLESALE BUSINESS
IN DETROIT.
The leading wholesale dealer' in
books and stationery in the beautiful
City of the Straits, or anywhere in the
Michigan Peninsulas, by undisputed
precedence, is Thorndike Nourse. This
young gentleman came from Boston to
the Northwest about ten years ago,
bringing to the city of his choice an in
valuable re-inforcement of the charac
teristic shrewdness, energy, and enter
prise of the Hub, He became a mem
ber of the then notable firm of E. B.
Smith & Co., occupying the spacious
premises now used by the American
Express Company, at tbe southwest
corner of Griswold and Fort streets.
He remained with Messrs Smith & Co.
for about seven years, and upon the dis
solution of that house in 1880, assum
ed and carried on its business, with
successive enlargements and
increasing prosperity, until this
year, when he mainly retired from
the retail trade, and devoted his
abilities to his growing and hope
ful wholesale interests. For several
years, under E. B. Smith & Co., and
then Thorndike Nourse, the establish
ment had been popularly maintained on
Woodward avenue, northeast corner of
Lamed street, where a well stocked re
tail store and some of the lighter
branches of Mr. Nourse's own business
are still conducted. This location, how
ever, was not satisfactory as a perma
nent place for the broader trade which
he contemplated. At his instance, ac
cordingly, the proprietor of the site
now occupied (at Nos. 47, 49, and 51
Lamed street, southeast comer of
Shelby,) erected the elegant McMillan
building, which fills a worthy place in
the recent and noble architecture of thj
city. In the spring of 1882 Mr. Nourse,
whose ideas had been embodied in. every
feature of the edifice, took the entire
leaseof.it and now occupies nearly
the whole with the various de
partments of an establishment which
has already come to be one of the
most marked characteristics of the
manufacturing and wholesale inter
ests of Detroit. A considerable panora
ma would be required even to hint the
beauty of the views to be had from
parts of it, across the city and the
broad river to the dominion of Her
Britannic Majesty, or to indicate Us
eligible situation for business. It is
scarcely more than a biscuit-tos3 from
the post-ofllce, whose site, by the
recent decision of the Government au
thorities, is to remain undisturbed, ex
cept by early extension and improve
ment, for, probably, the next fifty years,
at least. It is within five minutes
walk of all the principal steamer land
ings and hotels; is directly upon the
horse-cars, running to the Central
depot, the chief railway station in the
city; and is within pistol-shot of every
other trainway in the place. The
famous Woodward avenue is but two
blocks distant; Jefferson avenue but
one block. Better judgment in the
choice of a present and permanent lo
cation for such a business could not
have been had.
The edifice thus fortunately occupied
by Mr. Nourse is six stories high, in-
ludmg the basement story. Entering
this, the clatter of busy machinery
cheerily greets the visitor, for Mr.
Nourse js a printer, binder and publish
er, as well as bookseller and stationer.
To his presses, in printing rooms and
bindery, comes large work from far and
near; in one recent case that of a huge
encyclopaedia for subscription circula
tion, across two states and part of an
other, even from the interior of Iowa,
and passing Chicago printers on the
way. For that matter, a well-known
Chicago house, having a heavy con
tract for the production of the Supreme
Court reports of Michigan, has all the
mechanical work done by Mr. Nourse;
and no neater work, in sll particulars
of typography and bindiug, appears in
the law-books of any state in the union
or country of the world. His workshops
are also constantly engaged in turning
out the issues of two of the publishing
houses of Detroit among the most
popular subset iption books in the mar
ket, largely by reason of their superior
presentations to the eye. A vast deal
of occasional and transient work is al
so turned out of the various branches
of the manufacturing department.
Mr. Nourse is likewise himself a
publisher of no small productivity.
Among the more important work bear
ing his imprint, are the thirteen vol
umes of the "handy volume Shakes
peare," for which there is steady and
increasing demand; the writings of the
celebrated Orestes A. Brownson, long
editor of the Boston Quarterly Review,
prepared by his son, now a resident of
Detroit (In press), a new edition of Dr.
John Brown's -"Rob and His Friends,"
Buperbly illustrated with original steel
plates, and retailed at the price of five
dollars; Webb's "Word Method" and
the accompanying apparatus, which
have been the means of introducing an
improved way of learning to read into
many thousands of schools; Smith's
Interest Tables; School Registers, in
two sizes; and Smith's Class-Book.
By all the printed productions of the
house the basement story is kept music
al with the movement of a fine Camp
bell four-roller press, a complete Camp
bell and a Cranston, and several other
presses are in motion above and below
stairs. Mr. Chas. Kamerhoff is "on
deck" in his department, and Mr. II.
R. Winn is foreman in the composing
room. This is at the other extreme of
height, occupj ing the well-lighted and
ventilate' uppermost story, to which,
as to all the floors, an elevator gives
prompt and convenient access. Upon
this floor we notice many immense rolls
of paper, such as are used by the per
fecting presses printing the leading
daily journals, which reminds us that
Mr. Nourse also carries a heavy bust
ness in "news print," furnishing, for
example, the entire supply of the De
troit rost and Tribune.
Three of the floors below the com
posing room, in the west half of the
building, are occupied by the bindery,
employing about eighty hands, under
the competent charge of the veteran
bookbinder, Mr, II. T. Cliff. To him
the establishment is Indebted for val
uable improvements, as a simple ma
chine for the removal of superfluous
gold leaf after embossing, which is
elsewhere done by hand. The bindery
has a very full -equipment of embos
sing and other presses and machines
for ruling, numbering, folding and
other purposes. The highest of the
, floors given to thetblndery is almost ex
clusively devoted to the manufacture of
blank-books, which is one of the spe
cialties of the business, and for which
it has high reputation. Some of the
book bindings in the rooms below are
quite unique, as that of "The Success,
lul IIousekeeper"in a beautiful pattern
of oilcloth, peculiarly adopted to meet
the dangers of the kitchen and pantry.
The most attractive rooms of all,
however, are naturally the sales or
sample departments, occupying the
ground floor. Immediately at the cor
ner of Shelby and Lamed streets the
spacious room devoted to books and the
finer articles of stationery, which ap
pear in infinite vaiiety of beauty
and excellence. Miscellaneous books,
photograph, autograph, scrap, card and
picture albums, papeteries, writing
fluids and inkstands, blank books, fold
ed papers, etc., etc., etc., in brief, ev
ery article properly carried in the
wholesale business, are shown here in
wondrous and bewildering variety. An
ingenious additltion of galleries has
added greatly to the storage capacity of
the rooms. The second one is devoted
more closely to the specialties of Mr.
Nourse's trade to stationery, as repre
sented by flat papers, envelopes, blank
books, inks, etc., vast piles of
which cover the floor and line
the galleries. A well equipped
accountant's office, witk immense
but elegant safe, is at the street end of
this room, and it forms a very pleasant
office, which is occupied by Mr. E. S.
Baker and his several assistants. Be
tween the rooms, but opening out of
the first, is Mr. Nourse's private office,
handsomely and tastefully furnished;
upon the other side of the room is the
desk of Mr. C. M. Gilbert, superintend
ent of this department. 6)n the east
side of the building, in stories above
the stationery and accountants' room,
the boxes, shelves and other carpenter's
work required in the business, are man
ufactured. The whole forms a hive of
busy and well directed industry, such
as is rarely seen in any city of our west
ern world.
Human Ravens. Those people who
are always croaking out prognostica

are those who see spots in the sun,

people, only one degree less
aggravating than those who persist in
crying up the glories of the "old times,"
and in ignoiing all the evidence of
modern progress. Now and then one
is tempted to wish that there could be
a fair division of people, and all the
grumblers be closeted off into one cor
ner, all the bright-tempered, sun-shiny
people into another. The ranks of the
croakers would soon be thinned,, and
the army of those who believe in "hu

sunrise never tailed us yet, and up the
east another day shall chase the bitter
dust away." A realization of that fact
would help along more than all the
growling over ignorance and folly and
evil ever has done or ever will do. Hope

the morrow, faith in the capacity of
man, woman and child.to rise, are what
the world needs.

THE ELIXIR OF YOUTH.
How Old Ago was Restored to
Youthful Vigor.
Geneva, Kane Co., Ilia, Sept. 20, 1881.
To the proprietors of Durdock Blood Bitters,
Buffalo, N. Y.
Gentlemen: I purchased a bottle of your
Burdock Blood Bittern, and saws request to
be Id formed of Us effects. 1 therefore give
you a brief history of my case. I was taken
four years since with paralysis, arid my case
was supposed to he bopelem. I employed a
physician until I was ahle to sit up, when I
concluded to manage my wn case, as I was
so far advaneed In life It would only be possi
ble to survive a short time, being now a little
over 80 years of age. I tried many remedies,
and notwithstanding the persevering use of
them, I found no permanent benefit until I
used your Burdock Blood Bitters,wh!ch I bare
found to suit my case exactly, 'and I feel re
joiced to have found a medicine of true worth
and so full of li'e-glvicg principles. Its bene
ficial effects wre in'mlftst from the first, and
I now feel almost the vigor of youth again.
J his Is my experience with your Burdock
Blood Bitters, to the meiita of which I am
very ready to give my teHtlmony.
Yours respectfully,
D. H. HOWARD.
