Quiet, and pale, and thin ; But the little head is once more raised As Harry comes bounding in. A wooden horse in his hand he holds, Drk gray with a long black maqe ; And an eager, longing look lights up The pale little face again. "No feaby dear, I will hold it close, But I cannot give it to you ; I'm Bfraid you would let it fall, and break My horse, so pretty and new." But the pale little eager face still pleads, Outstretched is the small band still; He stands for a moment, then holds it out, "I'll lend it to baby, I will " That day is past, and he finds it again Where tho baby had thrown it aside ; Iler coral red, with its silver bells, Still fast to the bridle tied. There's a touch of paint off the bright green stick; And a chip off the horse's ear; But, Oh ' not that to the boy's blue eye Brings the quickly gathering tear. And while Harry lives he will still be glad That he lent her his hor3e that day ; For the Baby has gone where never r.gain Can she ask with his toys to play. Harper's linear. THE KECaIKTRY LAW.

It is expressed in the single word RETRENCHMENT. Disband the Army. Reduce the Navy to a peace footing. Cut down the Civil Expenses of Gov ernment. Then Repeal the Taxes. Abolish the Income Tax, which grinds five percent off the interest of every city, corpora tion or railroad bond, whether the holders be poor or rich. Abolish the licenses to merchants, hotel and restau rant keepers and professional men. Abolish all taxes, except excises on liquors and tobacco, and if necessary, stamps. The Manufacturers clamored for the repeal of their taxes, and Congress re moved them. Now let the People clamor for the repeal of their taxes, and require Congress to remove them. If Congress refuses, the people should ap ply the proper remedy and remove Congress.— Lancaster Intelligencer. SOMETHING FOR THE SICK. —Dr. Keyser says: "Frequently we find sick people whose stomachs reject all kinds of nourishment until conditions follow that in many instances terminate fa tally. In twenty instances in which I heard the popular sick-bed nourish ment prescribed and rejected by an invalid's enfeebled stomach, I* have never known the simple saucer of parched corn pudding or bowl of gruel refused. The corn is roasted brown, precisely as we roast coffee, ground as fine as meal in a coffeo mill, and made into either mush, gruel, or thin cakes baked brown, and given either warm or cold, clear or with whatever dress ing the stomach will receive or retain. Parched corn and meal boiled in skim med milk, and fed frequently to chil dren suffering from summer diarrhoea, will almost always cure as it will dys enterv in adults." How THEY RETRENCH.— The other day a couple of Mongrels attempted to get into the Tennessee Legislature, and were beaten by some eight thousand votes. The people did not want them —the Mongrel Legislaturedid; although the Committee on elections reported unanimously against the right of the 'Moil" claimants to a scat. What was the result ? The 'Moil" majority in the Legislature boldly robbed the State treasury of five thousand dollars, giv ing the sum to the two beaten candi dates, as a solace for the loss of their - >ats in that body. This is a specimen of the legislation, not only in all the Mongrelized States, but in Washing ton year after year.— Day Booh. REMARKABLE FREAK OP NATURE. —The Salem (Intl.) Times says that Ab ner Fields, of Howard township, in Washington county had a cow which was delivered of twenty-eight calves in one day. The two largest are about the size of ordinary twin calves, the next largest about one-half size, and the remaining twenty-five about the size of an ordinary rat. They are all dead, mother included, except the two largest, which are doing well. The statement above is from Mr. Fields himself, and from several neighbors of his, who witnessed the sight, and who are as fully entitled to belief as any person in the world. This is the most singular freak of nature, of the kind, of which we have ever heard. COUGH CURE.— One who has tested its efficacy, and who is desirous of alle viating the barking which affiicts our community, advises them to roast a lemon very carefully, without burn ing it; when it is thoroughly hot, cut and squeeze into a cup, upon three ounces of sugar, finely powdered,— Take a spoonful whenever your cough troubles you. It is as good as it is ,a greeable to the taste. Rarely has it been known to fail of giving relief. AN Irishman a short time in this country, was eating boiled green corn. After eating off all the corn, he passed the cob back to the lady who sat at the head of the table, saying: "Would you please be so kind as to put some more beans on the sthick ?" IF ill luck befalls you, think that it may be a blessing to somebody else, and that your turn may come next.
