A pproved March 26,1874. “I am not afraid of a barrel of eider,” said a toper to a temperanoe man. ‘‘I presume not,” was the re ply; “from the appearance, I gnees a barrel of cider would run at your ap proach.” A saint ef God may suffer aod not siu, but he eannot oin and not suffer AN INNOCENT GRANGER. A farmer—we will call him Smith, for short—lives in Madison county, Ky., and would be known, at least by reputation, to many of our readers were his right name given. But the incident we now relate, though coming to us in a reliable way, was known to few outside of his neighborhood. Farmer Smith lived in a quiet way, and was supposed to have ac cumulated something ahead, besides hav ing a pretty good farm. After his second son had been married about a year, ho concluded to settle sear the old man’s, if he could rent a place. Hearing of this, Mr, Thompson—again we withhold the true name—thought there might be a chance to sell a certain place on pretty fair terms. Mr. Thomp. son was a money-loaner, and nothing suited him so well as good interest, back ed by good security, and he was moreover considered a pretty shrewd trader. He rode over to see old man Smith, but the farmer said he did not feel able to buy — h* might buy on a credit, if the price was low enough and the interest was not too high. His eon ‘Jakey,’ he said, would have to pay for the farm himself if the trade was made, but his son was a good farmer, and, he thought it would be all right—at least the land would be there, and would be good for what remained unpaid if his son should fail What geemod to startle the old fellow was the twelve per cent interest that Thompson insisted upon demanding. Finally, however, after a great deal ui iai», iuc pi itc was a^ieeuuu at iweu > thousand dollars, one-fifth cash, and notes at one, two, three and four years, wi'h twelve per cent interest from date, for the remainder. The contract was drawn and they were about to sign, when the farmer suggested that if he should at any time get more money than was due on the notes he wanted to be allowed to pay it, and count off the twelve per cent. The proposition seemed reasonable enough to Thompson, and he could not object to its insertion in the contract, and so the document was signed in duplicate. The deed was to be ready, the notes drawn, and the first payment made on the follow ing Saturday. When the time arrived both were punctually on hand, the first four thous and was paid, and the notes were ready for signature. ‘Mr. Thompson,’ said farmer Smith, ‘I’ve been thinking about that interest, and it seemed skeery, so 1 thought I’d gether in some little money I had out, and’—pulling from his breast pocket a roll of money—‘jist count that.’ ‘The money was counted, and, with twelve per cent, off, the first note was paid. When Thompson had pocketed the money, again said Smith: ‘I’ve got a son livin’ in Missouri, Mr. Thompson, and as soon as he heard that I was buyiu’ a farm for Jakey, he sent me a little money’—pulling a roll from his right side breeches pocket—‘and, so, whatever it is, we’ll credit it on the Dext note, if you have no objection.’ Again the money was counted, and, with the twenty-four pet cent, off, just paid the note to a cent. ‘W’el!, that’s luck’, resumed the old man, ‘and now, Mr. Thompson, the old woman has been selling right smart of butter and eggs, and some chickens now and then, when they came round the country a-buying, and she told me this mornin’ that I better take what she had, and maybe it wouldn’t come amiss.’ A roll was produced from the left side breeches pocket, and, when counted, just paid the third note after the thirty-six per cent, interest was deducted, and mi . * J_i __J CJ_".L _ 1 UUlIipouu cniu uvi « " UI Vi. k,' lit 1111 ovbiu ed to be considering for some minutes, and then, raising bis bead, said, as though a sudden thought had struck him: ‘You knowed rov darter Sallie, didn't ye? leastwise you’ve seen her. She was a fine gal. About five years ago, at hog killin’time, one of my hands tuck sick, and what does Sallie do but turr in and help us, and I tell you, she could sling a hog across her shoulder equal to any man on the ground. Well, you know, Sallie married year before last, and her husband, Hibbell—you know Hibbeil —is doin,’ they tell me, as good a grocery business as any man in Kirksville. Jakey he went over to see them the other day, and they was talkin’ about this here interest business, and Sallie says to Hibbell, says she—’ ‘Never mind what they said, Mr. Smith,' said Mr. Thompson, ‘just banJ over the money you were going to say they sent you.’ And, sure enough, the old man pro duced still another roll from some secret pocket, which, when counted, proved to be the exact amount necessary to pay off the last note when the forty-eight per cent, bad been duly taken off. Thompson pocketed the money, went straight to the oourt house, acknowledged the deed, and handed it over with only this remark: ‘You are the greatest rasoal I ever saw!’ — Exchange. Never wait for a thing to turn up. Go and turn it up yourself. It take* lees time, and is surer to be done.
