In 'compa ny with lr, (i. D. Green, a reporter visited the faJsHjcyesterday. The lower siory of the house lies below the lf.vel of the pavement, and into it riWts the water on rainy days. The walls tre moist with water and their diiuiy appearance is"more liEe a prison .cell than a dwelling. Down. stairs two little bright eyed house keepf f, 4gpd ygspectivelyiteri ud eight j'ears old, were busily; scnj te? bing tbe floor, while a smaller broth er, fteM'.y ;uake&, was sleeping in! a corner.

He is poverty-stricken' and the condition of his family has almost deranged hisjnL.rppje ime ; he has been iii a melancholy state and has exjed; his physician his de sire1 to"edmmit suicide? 1 Dr. G. ,D. Green, of the Northern dispensary,! who was sent to minister to the fam- ily, said: ' . "In my practice I have visited a great many pbor people, but 1 never saw such wretchedness and poverty as thas family are in. ;-1 believe that the elder girl became leeble-minded through lack of proper food and nu trition, and ,h think her mind would grow strong if 'she were properly cared for..- The - whole family are actually buffering from starvation. With proper care I Relieve the moth er would improve and might possi bly get well. It is certainly an ex-; cellent. opportunity for the exercise of cajftty . , The oldest child is a boy of fourteen iind: he ; earns : just two dollars: a weeki. on which the family live. The boy goes out in' the morn ing and works all day on a scanty breakfast of bread and wateT." t A German who lives next door spoke in he'' highest ..terms of the father.' sobriety and honestly. .The German has been! supplying them with food and said he had seen the family when' they- were ' famish ing; "When I am eating mybreakfast,,r he paid, "the little codgers will line themstlvestalopg,my .window aod, peeping in; ivteously. beg food." NVjlJljamJ. Vrd, ,the father of the f. i u ily, is a southerner by birtb.

Do you know that a Life Insurance Policy costs less than a Fire Policy? On an ordinary stock of goods, yon pay a rate of from one per cent, to two per cent, per annum. In ease of a fire your loss will not probably exceed one half of the stock, while it may be but a trifle. You ean carry a life policy for from one per cent, to two per cent, per annum (if under frty years of age) with a certainty of ultimate death, and there will be no salvage. Did you ever think that if you insure your goods for a number of years, and then cease payment, that you obtain no further re turn for your investment?
