There's got to be a revival Of good sound sense among men, Before the days of prosperity Will dawn upon as again ; The boys most learn that learn In' Means more'n the eesenea as books. And the girls must leans that beauty Consists In more'n their looks. Before we can steer clear uv failures And big financial alarms. The boys have got to quit clerkin' And get back oa to our farms. I know It ain't quite so nobby. It ain't quite so easy, I know, Es partln' your hair In the middle An' sctUii' ap for a show. But there's more hard dollars In It, And more Independence, too. And more real peace 'n contentment, And health that it ruddy and true. I know it taksi years of labor j But you've got to hang on In a store Before yoa can earn a good livin' And clothes, with but little more. And you steer well dear of temptation On the good old honest farm. And a thousand ways'n fashions That only bring ye to harm. There ain't but a few that can handle With safety other men's cash, And the fate of many who would try it Proves human natur Is rash. So, when the road of State prison Lays by the good old farm. And the man sees a tollln' brother Well out of the way of harm, Ho mounts be hadn't staid there, A-tlliin' the soil in peace. Where he'll yet creep back In dishonor, After a tardy release. What host uv 'em go back Iroken In health. In mind, 'a purse. To die In tight uv the clover, Or linger along, which Is worse ! Ami how many mourn when useless That they didnt see the charm, The tafety'n Independence, Ur a life oa the dear old farm. So preach it up to 'em, parson, Just lay it out plain 'ml square. That land flows with milk 'n honey. And health, 'nd peace are there. And call back the clerks 'nd runners. And show 'em the peacelul charm That waits to cheer and bless them, On iitbcr's dear old farm. A SEAIBOBE IDYL Deaeest Geuty: 'Doing precisely as I'd be done by, 1 write m tbe greatest burry to tell you that, unless yoa can prevent it, your father will be married to a fas cinating, intriguing kind of cousin of mine, who is doing all in her power to mace nim and every one else in love with her.' What a scare for nothing !' inter rupted Jack, 'lie is only in love : I thought it was all fixed.' 'Wait until you hear more,' sol emnly replied his sister : 'She is a widow, and fatally, dan gerously charming. I bate ber, but am forced to acknowledge this. Ev ery creature, except me, whom she looks at likes her. She has light ha zel eyes, wonderful hair, an exquisite white skin, and, whether she walks or eits still, looks up or down, is irre sistible. Her veiy voice would charm the bird off the tree. I hate ber be cause I am jealous of her, and, al though she purrs over me, will not be friendly. Very welL I'll coma to the point I heard vonr father en treat, beseech her, to marry him.

Mrs. Grant laid the letter gravely down on tbe library table, gazed at the three with a questioning glance, and languidly inhaled tbe perfume of ber blue violets. How can father be such a fool V exclaimed Jack; 'he is seventy years old.' Poor father 1' said Archie, 'ilow devoted and kind he was to mamma! Let him marry if he pleases.' ion little know wnat yoa are say ing,' Briekd Uertrode. Let him marry !' with a sarcastic air.

'He'd tell as just to make the best of it,' cried Gerty. 'William would let father cnt his (William's) throat cheerfully if he were so inclined. lie doatt on papa. So do we all,' she added with a sigh, 'only we dont want him to be mar ried. It is undignified, it is prepos terous!' with rising indignation. 'We can prevent it Nina says she's cow ardly ; let as ase oar utmost endeav ors. I shall start to-day. Harry telegraph papa to secure rooms for me ; and, Archie and Jack, yoa come as soon as I send for yoa. In the meantime 111 write to William he is at the White Mountains and III lay the whole matter before bun. If he chooses to evade the responsibil ity, he may; he cannot say that be has not been warned.' 'Dear papa, I could asot live with out yoa a moment longer,' whisper ed Gertrude as ah emerged, faint with fatigae, from tbe lumbering coach and kissed the old gentleman tenderly. Her maid followed with bags and wraps. 'I rather thought you'd meet me with a carriage at the station,' she continued, gently reproachfuL 'I am sorry, my dear,' replied Mr. Lee, witb some embarrassment, 'bat I had made p a party to go off la Bom mr Yacht, and. in fact, had to short en the sail to meet too at all.' 'Dear papa!' ejaculated Gerty, pressing his arm tender!-. Mr. Lee looked doubtfally on the fair little face nestling against bis shoulder: he was evidently ill at ease. A look of relief passed orer him when Mrs. Grant announced her in' tention of remaining in her room for the evening and having her tea sent to her. She summoned, however, secretly, Miss Nina Montgomery. 'I shall be perfectly frank with your cousin,' she said to that yonng lady. 'I mean to write to Mrs. rage and propose an interview. No skir mishing. I'll come to the point di rectly.' That astute yonng person looked doubtful : 'She is hesitating ; may not opposition decide her the wrong wayr 'No, it will frighten her: yoa said she is cowardly. No temporizings or hesitations for me : I hate master ly inactivity. I am going for her ! a common txoression,' she remark ed. . They were playing croquet on a very poor croquet ground, with a large party. 'Mr. Lee whispered Mrs. rage, 'wilryoa walk on the beach after the gamer I have something to tell yoa. I hope it is something agreeable ' be replied, disturbed by ber man ner. 'No; it is something verv disagree' able.' The new moon gleamed uncertain ly on the water ; delicious salt breez es blew upon them as they walked up and down upon the sands. Mr. Lee, I bave had an interne with your daughter. Mrs. Grant a verv unpleasant interview. If I had made op my mind to be ber step mother, I think I should retract: as it 'What did you say, my dear Mrs. rage r asked -Mr. jee witn a seren ity he was far from feeling. 'I said very little. If she had coaxed, I should have told her how little she bad to fear.' 'Ah!' in a tone of dismay. 'As she did very much tbe reverse, I was cold, dignified and non-committal She was verv disagreeable' and Mrs. rage wept at tbe remem brance of ber wrongs 'accused me of entrapping and intriguing talked of yonr money' Mrs. Page actually sobbed 'in short, my dear Mr. Lee, I tbinkl bad better leave to-morrow morning.' 'And if yoa go, what will be the result, so far as I am concerned ?' be politely interrogated. 'If 1 go it will greatly inconveni ence me, and of course my only ob ject in going will be to end this mat ter ; Mrs Grant tbe immediate pro pelling cause.' An angry gleam shot from Mr. Lee's eye. 'I'll take care,' he said, 'that you'll not be annoyed in the fature Airs. urant shall humbly apologize, and the most leave, not you.' Jay aear . sir. Liee, promise me that yoa will never speak to your daogbter on the subject I a cause of discord in your family ! Promise me ; I insist, I entreat that yoa nev er allude to me. Promise me, desr Mr. Lee,' continued the coaxing voice. 'On one condition' Mr. Lee seiz ed his ddvanuge 'that yoa stay, and that what Mrs. Grant has said shall have n effect on your conduct or decision. I'll take no denial,' he gently whispered. 'How does our little negotiation stand at present ? I am at yonr mercy? yoa are doubtful, hesitating, bat tbe scales weigh a lit tle in my favor, do they not 1" 'Oh, no. Indeed 1 have never thought seriously of marrying yoa, I only dislike to refuse yoa.' 'That last is an admirable frame ot mind ; preserve it ;' and, as they had left the beach and were within hear ing and observation, the conversation ceased. Archie and Jack appeared the next day, summoned by an impera tive telegram from Mrs. Grant. 'Now, boys, yoa mast exert your selves: I've done all I can.' said their sister. She is obstinate and odious would not tell me anything.' 'Perhaps it is all a scare,' exclaim ed Archie. Yoa are very much mistaken. Papa is devoted to ber and icy to me. l Here's no time to lose. We are so intimate with the Montgom erys, yoa can be constantly at the cottage, and chance will throw op portunities in yonr way.' i 'Wbose turn will n be to speak first V cried Archie. 'I'll throw up a penny ; heads win, tails lose. It's mine 1' with a glance of despair. Arcbie clang pertinaciously to Mrs. Page's side on the piazza, sat next to her in tbe omnibus which took them to the bathing beach, walk ed home with her through tbe shady lane after the bathing. bhe was delighted with the gay young fellow. At length she showed a little clew: 'Mrs. Page, we are all very much afraid yoa are going to marry papa.' Would yon not like me for a step mother V and She smiled delicionsly at him. His tender heart melted: 'Like yoa ! who coald help liking yoa? Bat and he hesitated 'we don't want a step mother : step-moth ers are decidedly In the way.' An involuntary smile appeared on Mrs, Page's face ; then she sighed. Tbe good-hearted fellow felt com punction as be beard the sigh. 'Hang it !' he burst forth, 'Gerty set me at yoa. She expects me to be disagree able, bat who coald fight a dove ? It will be dangerous to marry papa; we shall be in love with oar step-mother.' 'Jack,' he cried to his brother a few momenta after, I made a perfect mess of it began to flatter and all that She's an angel !' 'She is detestable !' returned Jack: 'I bate yonr parriog, coaxing women. She shall bave a piece of my mind, I eaa tell yoa.'

She avoided the piasza, sad on the third day bad bidden tterself with book behind a rock, when, bristling and pugnacious, he appeared : Par don my intrusion, bat I am exceed ingly desirous of seeing yoa, and alone.' ' She bowed stiffly. ' . . . 'Mrs. Page, we have been told ot my father's proposal, sxtd that yoa think of accepting hinv The idea is very disagreeable to all of us to all of us,' he repeated firmly : 'In fact. we can scarcely think veil of yoa. It puts yoa in a most conspicuous, real. ly odious light' 1 Mrs. Page did not look dove-like at this moment ; her light brown eyes Hashed indignantly at lim. 'There is bat one object in marry ing my father,' he renamed after i moments pause : 'It is A transaction common enough in Mohammedan countries. Yoa are porcbaeed with a million of dollars ; I think that was the sum mentioned ?' Her lip quivered like a chMd's'in dignation and tears strove . for the mastery, but cry she would not ; be never should have that satisfaction. 'Mr. Lee,' she exclaimed, 'I don't Know wbat you think of your con duct ; think it is cowardly, dastard ly. Yoa are afraid of remonstrating with your father, bat yoa hurl cruel, insulting words at me. a poor, de tenseiess woman, l admire yonr lather, l am even lond of him, bat 1 was very far from consenting to mar ry him. Now I think I will What his entreaties could not effect, your insolence has.' She arose, and with a Juno-like air swept away. t tu, Brute V exclaimed Mr. Lee senior to his son William, who had walked from tbe station, and was registering his arrrral in the book in the office. 'Not at all, my deat. father ;' and he took his father's arm and led bim away I only came to see that you had fair play. Marry whom yoa please and as yoa please. Bat what is that lady's name ?' . . 'she is a Mrs. I agem widow.' 'Ah !' exclaimed William, and his cordiality to a degree vanished. Let me introduce yoa,' said li is father. No, I am dusty and tired ; IU she make my own way. They say is staying with the Montgomerys. Mrs. 1 age began to be very weary with all tbeso complications. She felt hemmed in, beleaguered, by the Lees, and was taking a brisk morn ing walk on a dusty highway toward a neighboring town, la hones to es cape them for a time. I , Some one, however Iras in swift pursuit ; she felt that was a Lee. The foot-Bteps gained 9on her. Alice !' exclaimed) nil melodious voice ; and llliam 1 seized both her hands. 'Alice, is It really yoa ?' Mrs. Page trembled and grew very pale. He placed her on large stone which stood conveniently near, and sat down beside her. 'Alice, where were yoa ? I travel ed over Europe in search of yoa. Will yoa forgive me, my darling, my suspicions, my anger, my absurd jeal ousy ?' Mrs. Page closed her eyes and the tears rolled down her cheeks. At this juncture Mr. Lee, senior, breathless with his chase after her, came op. He felt that this was a scene, and waited for explanations. 'My dearest father,' exclaimed Wil liam, rising, and seizing his arm, 'she loves both of as, bat she promis ed to marry me first 1 am sorry,' he continued ruefully. 'Dear Mr. Lee,' said Mrs. Page, seizing his other arm, 'yoa are so like him your bearing, your smiles, your tones really, if 1 could not have married William I mast have married yoa.' A cloud passed for a moment over Mr. Lee'6 tace, but during his seven ty years, whenever there were heroic, unselfish qualities to be displayed, be was never wanting. 'My dear,' he said in that pleasant voice so like his son's, turning with kindly courtesy toward her 'my dear, it is best as it is more natur al, more appropriate.' A Queer Robbery. The Evangelist tells the story cf a man who, returning home rather late at night while it was snowing, felt for his watch to see the time, bnt it was gone. It flashed over him in an instant that only three minates before a man had passed him who rubbed against him. It was bat the work of a moment to give chase, and lifting his umbrella he demanded his watch or vengeance. The watch was hand ed over by the terrified traveler, and the good citizen went home in a very complacent mood, congratulating him self on his good lock and courage. At the breakfast table tbe next morn ing his wife read the story of the robbing of a man, only a few streets away, of a valuable gold watch and chain. It was a most daring affair, the robber lifting an enormous club and threatening all sorts of things. "That U singular," said the bos band, "for I was robbed of my watch near that place, and ran after tbe vil lain and recovered it" "Are yoa sure, dear ?" . "Yes!" "Why, yoa left yonr watch at home yesterday when yoa went ont, and I saw a strange one one th bureau this morning. Can it be that you have committed robbery ?" So it turned oat A Sunday-school teacher in this town has a boy in ber class who has not failed in his penny contribution for more than a year, and when be was fonnd empty-handed last Sunday, tbe teacher observed : "Why, John ny, did yoa forget your penny to day ?" "No, ma'am," he humbly re plied, "bat father says the Wabash road will do this town more good than any fourteen Sunday-school and I'm going to chuck my coppers into that enterprise for theneztfew week." "Won't the heathen miss your pen nies ?" she queried. "I 'spoae they will, but we've all got to come right down or tbis town is busted." The "nark Hr-' mt IftSO. Now yoa may know who the "dark horse" is in the coming politic al campaign. He entered a Grand Biver avenue saloon yesterday, and removing bis coat, hat and collar he confidentially asked for a private word with tbe proprietor. "Nopody iah here you can spoke away," was the reply, as tbe beer sel ler lazily rinsed a glass. "Are yoa aware," whispered the stranger, as he pat his nose almost into tbe other's face, "that this coun try is on the eve of another etupend ous political straggle ?" "Do yoa mean about dis hot ved- der ?" "i o, sir : I mean that we are soon to elect another President, and that tbe campaign will be tbe hottest ever known in the political history of this world, and you may draw me a glass of beer." " V hell, I doan' know much of poll ticks," said the other, and making no move to fill tbe glass. "That's it that's the key note!" chuckled the old man as he slapped him on the back. "The kind of men to go into the next Cabinet are men who have never been mixed up in politics. I'm mighty glad I came in here, and you may draw me a glass of beer."

Everything under heaven seems to work agin the Democracy, and make a continyood success impossible. We succeeded in electia a Dimocratic Congris, the people hevin tired uv Bepoblikin rool, and it did seem to me that there wuz natbin in the way uv a continyooance thereof, for an indefinit period. I looked confidently forerd to the Postomce at th Cor ners, and rely expectid that I hood end my days holdin that Commishun and specdin the salary pleasantly and cheerfully at Bascom's. In tbe fuBt place we wuz shoor that Sherman's resampshen wood cause widespred disaster, wich the people wood charge to the akjunt uv tbe Kepabhkin party, and wood bring the Nashnels over to us, yoonitin both parties agin the common foe, and that after that everything wood be plain sailin. We coald sweep the hole kentry like a tornader, leevin nary greea-spot uv tbe Radikels be hind" us. But somehow it didn't work.

To our horror, failyoors begun to grow lesser and lesser, and when I went to Looisviile and intervewed the merchants and manufacturers, and they all told me that biznis wuz better than it bed bin for yeers, and that it wuz constantly increesin, and increesin too in a healthy way, and that they wuz a payin their hands promptly, and that tbe bands wuz a gittia on fast rate, and wuz comforta ble, then my hart sunk within my buzzum, and I went home disharten ed and discurridged. . . Bascom is more uv a lloman than I am. Tbis wuz early iu the season, and when I wuz weepin over the prosperity uv the keatry, he remark ed: "Brace up, Parson, there is yit hope for the Dimocrisy. The crops may yit fail, and rooiu 'may yit en- goo!" Them words give me hope and I watched the crop reports with in tense anxiety, and I daily sighed ike Jeremiah, the great lamenter ! Ob, that tbe frost would stake the corn ia the blade, and the cowcumber on the vine! Oh ! that tbe fruit would perish in the bud, and tbe scab wood git among the sheep ! Ob ! that the marram and tbe horn ail wood rage among tbe kine! Ob, that tbe glanders wood spred among the bosses and cat them down by the thousand, yea, by the ten thousand. Oh, that tbe cholera . wood revel among tbe hogs, and destroy them all, from the mature sow to tbe ten der and succulent suckling. Ob, that the rot would destroy the potato, and the cat-worm the tender corn. Then wood the people be distress, and they wood charge it up to the account of John Sherman, reaump shun and the Republikin party, and we shood elect Tilden and Keform in 1880, and I shood enjoy my Post- oms. All uv these wood it take, and more to enshoor a triumph for the Dimocrisy. I waited for these in vain. Nacber favors tbe Republikin party. There wuz no cut-worm, no frost, no hog- cholera, no murrain, no natbin. I hed some hope wunst, when I beard the weevil and Hessian fly hed ap peared in the wheat in Illinois, but my sole sunk when the report wuz pronounced unfounded. The wheat ia averagin 30 bushels to the akre, and it is sellin for a dol- ar or thereabouts, and the money paid for it is good, and the farmer is rejoicm. What good does it do for me to go about howlin about hard times to a farmer with 30 bushels to the akre in his barns ? Wbat good is it to howl about bad money, when the farmer kin bev gold and silver, ef he wants it, jist the same ez paper money ? Wat s the yoose uv talkin abont a change of polisy when the people is all on a broad grin ? I bev only one more hope. There are seckBhuns where corn is the prin cipal crop, and corn may yit be dis. troyed. A early frost in Southern Indiana might do us some good, bat after tbe disappointment with the wheat I hev bat faint hopes uv that Bat ef there cood be a frost that wood kill the en tire crop, and thus put op the price uv whisky, and side pork, it wood enrage that seckshun and wood en shoor that State for Tilden and Re form.

It don't do no good for me to lean agin a lamp-post and sware that work can't be had in consekence uv John Sherman's reconstrackshen, for Joe Bigler jeers and asks when I ever did put in a stroke uv work anyhow ?

The sight in most persons begins to fail from forty to fifty years of age, as Is evidenced by an instinctive pre ference for large print Says tbe Sci entific American: "Favor the failing sight as much as possible. Looking into a bright Ere, especially a coal fire, is very injurious to the eyes, as they are obliged to make great exertion. Reading or sewing by a side light injures the eyes, as both should be exposed to an equal degree of light The reason is, the sympathy between tbe eyes is so great that if the pupil of one is di lated by being kept partially in the shade, tbe one that 13 most exposed cannot contract itself sufficiently for protection, and will ultimately be in jured. Those who wish to preserve their sight should observe tbe follow ing rules, and preserve their general health by correct habit : I.

N ever pick any collected matter from tbe eyelashes or corners of the eyes with the finger nails; rather moisten it with the saliva and rub it away with the boll of the finger. 6. Frequently pass tbe ball of the finger over the closed eyelids towards the nose ; this carries off an excess of water into the noce itself by means of the little canal which leads into the nostrils from each inner corner of the eyes, this canal having a tendency to close op in consequence of the slight inflammation which attends weakness of the eyes. 7. Keep the feet always dry and warm, so as to draw any excess of blood from tbe other end of the body. 8. Use eyeglasses at first carried in the vest pocket attached to a guard, for they are instantly adjusted to the eye with very little trouble, whereas, if common spectacles are used such a process is required to get them ready that to save trouble the eyes are often strained to answer a purpose. 9.

Some old fashioned people complain that tbe rod has fallen into neglect, and that the reins of authority have passed from the parents to the children. For sock grumblers Austria is a good place to emigrate to, for whipping is the regime even for whooping cough. Physicians pronounced this uncom fortable disease to be chiefly of nerv ous origin and under the control of the will They maintain, therefore, that punishment is the best medicine, for a good whipping rouses the child to a vigorous exercise of will which suppresses the cough. It is certainly a curious theory, but held with tenacity by tbe Austrian physicians. Tbey may be popular among children in their own conntry, but tbey would be in danger of falling victims to mob law here. Children claim pity and petting when passing through this disease, and tbe thought of a whipping instead woold lead to revolts in the nursery.

A writer in the Sunday Aflenwon discussing the increase of intemper ance, and seeking about for a plausi ble theory to account for it, says : As long as the American people consume such quantities of stimulat ing and highly-seasoned food as they do, they will want to imbibe stimu lating drinks. Stimulating food and stimulating drinks necessarily go to gether. The ooe Is the concomitant on the other. Many a man wbo sea. sons his dinner liberally with the con tents of the castor excites in hia sys tem a thirst for something stronger than cold water. Not that cold wa ter would not be the best thing with which to extinguish the fire he has kindled within the vital domain by the use of such hot, stimulating con diments, but that is too insipid. Hav ing partaken of soch highly seasoned food he craves a drink equally stimu lating. Inebriates the world over are great consumers of flesh meat, and they also make excessive use of condi ments. Our attention was first di rected to this fact in visiting at ine briate asylums and sanitariums for the cure of the intemperate, where were congregated largo numbers of them; and eating at the same table with them for days, and ia one case for several weeks, this feature was so striking and so universal that it forc ed itself upon our attention. And no one, we think, in the same circum stances, could fail to notice it W e have always observed that the in mates of these institutions were, most of them, hearty eaters, especially of animal food. Beef, too, was prefer red to mutton and other kinds, as be ing the most stimulating kind of ani mal food. And this was usually sea soned liberally with mustard. Pep per was used abundantly with almost everything else. At the .New X or k btate inebriate asylum when Dr. Day was superin tendent, he felt compelled to banisn Worcestershire sauce wholly from the table, owing to the extravagant ase that was made of it And dar ing the incumbency of Dr. Dodge, his successor, the cayenne was re moved from the castor for the same reason.

Look at him again. He is now in the meridian oi me ; care haa stamped its wrinkles tpon his brow ; disappointment has dim med the lustre of his eye; Borrow hs thrown its gloom upon hia counte nance.

One evening a young man went to see a play. Taken with a fit of cough ing, he left the theatre. As he strode along two young men came rushing down the street, one of them drop ping a gold watch and chain, which the yonng man picked up, and then went after the loser, running into the arms of a policeman, who marched him eff to the station to explain mat ters. Presently a messenger arrived in hot haste, saying the thief was want ed at a central hotel The unfortun ate prisoner was taken there and brought face to face with a man ly ing on a lounge covered with blood. "Is this the man who stabbed you 7" asked the officer. "It is," said the poor fellow, fall ing back, never to speak again. The innocent young man was tried for murder, found guilty, and senten ced to be hanged ; and hanged he would have been, if, a fortnight be fore the day fixed for his execution, a prisoner in Sing Sing bad not con fessed on his death bed that he had robbed the man of his watch, then bad stabbed him, and ran off, after ward dropping the watch as he ran.

The lady, however, has flirting tendencies, and indulges them with a handsome party in the circle. Tbe escort is not unobservant of this little by-play, and finally asks smilingly, "Do you know that gentleman with whom you are flirting?" An embarrassed negative is the re ply.

"Would yoa like to be?" pleas antly. Very much surprised, replied "cer tainly." "Then come with me." A moment later the escort intro duces the not altogether comfortable pair.
