MOLMK-S M.TCII-MAKIXG. A dainty parlor with numerous easy chairs a plowing fire in the nickel trimmed heater, a pretty little woman listening for the footsteps of the lord and master. This charming picture of domestic bliss John Ack- erman fully appreciated as he step ped into the room a tew minutes la ter. Well. Mollie. what's the latest news ?' 'Oh, nothing, only supper has been waiting for half an hour. Come, let us hurry and eat, I want to talk with you.' 'I thought there was something on your mind ; didn't know but I was going to get a lecturing for being so late.' 'You deserve one, for this is the last evening I shall spend with you for two whole week3. Mrs. John Ackerman tried to frown, but failed completely. In another half hour they were back in the parlor, and Mollie be gan 'I think Tom is a line fellow, and there were never two brothers more alike than you and he.' 'Thank you, dear, I honor your judgment. 'And John, I have the most bril liant plan concerning him.' 'Do tell!' said John with a move ment toward his coat pocket, where the evening paper lay in uncut soli tude. Mollie observed the motion, and promptly informed him that he should not read a word until she was through talking. 'I am going awav to-morrow, and then you may read the paper from the time you enter the house until midnight, with no one to bother you,' ghe said. Somehow, the vision of the little parlor without Mollie's lively chat ter, did not seem to 6trike favorably, perhaps this was why he tossed the paper to the other side of the room and promised to listen. Mollie perched herself on one arm of his chair and started : 'You know mv sister Amy is com ing home with me for a long visit, and don't you think it would be splendid if she and Tom would fall in love with each other? They could get married and set up housekeeping in a cottage like this one across the street, it would make me so very happy !' John Ackerman laughed long and heartily. Match making, by Jove I he Faid at last 'Miserable yourself, and want everybody else to be, is that it, Mollie?' 'Don't laugh, John, for I am in earnest. I know they will like each other, and I Lave set mv heart on the match, just think how nice it would bo to have Amy here, and Tom is such a darling.' John was laughing again by this time, and it took considerable man agement to reduce him to order. 'I tell you what it is, Mollie, you don't want me to say a word of this to Tom or Amy, or they will take a dislike to each other.' 'I know it,'rejoined Mollie. 'When I told Tom I was going to visit aunt Hetty, I did not mention Amy's name and don't think he knows of her existence ; as for Amy, I have been with her so little since I am married that I am hure I never spoke to her about Tom.' 'Well, see that you don't do so now ;jyou couldn't mention his name without praising him to the skies, and she would see through your plans at once.' Mollie departed the next morning leaving directions enough to distract a man if he tried to remember half of them. 'Don't have Tom at the house when we return.was Mollie's last iniunction. 'Am v will he tired with her journey and 1 want her to have a chance to beautify a little before she meets him.' When they reached the depot Mollie's courage began to fail. 'I'm almost sorry to go, John,' she said, 'suppose something should happen to you while I am away? 'Nonsense, darling, go and have a good time; and be sure to come back in two weeks and bring Amy with you.' Mollie's heart was bo thoroughly in her pet plan that she found it very hard to retrain from all mention of her adorable brother-in-law during the two weeks that followed ; once she did refer to the cozy party of four which they would make and then was obliged to turn it off on Jenny, tbe little maid of all work, as making tbe fourth. t The day before Mollie was to re turn, aunt Hetty fell ill. Amy was obliged to postpone her visit for a few days at least Mollie could go on as she had in tended, and she would follow as soon as her aunt could eare her. 'Amy will certainly come up next week,' she assured John ; "but I could not wait another day.' It was so pleasant to be at home once more, and mistress of all she surveyed: a cote from Amy saying she would come the following Satur day set her mind completely at rest She was really boitj to hear John say one morning : - 'I think we had better take that run down to Camden's to-day. We set ESTJBUSECEID, 1827. SOMERSET, PA., WEDNESDAY. must go sometime this month, and of course you won't want to go after your sister comes. 'John, you know we cannot stay away all night; I gave Jenny leave of absence until Friday and it won't do to leave the house alone.' "I'll get Tom to come and sleep here.' 'There are three keys,' said she, as they left the house. 'You can give one to Tom, and I ' will leave one with Mr. Gate's, next door. The house might get on fire, and then it would be better to have a key han dy so they could get in the house and bring out the things.' 'Yes,' said John, sarcastically, 'or I might hire a squad of policemen to watch the house day and night' About eleven o'clock that evening Miss Amy Arden alighted from an express and looked about the depot as if expecting some one. 'They could not have received my second postal,' she concluded, after waiting nearly half an hour in the ladies' room. 'Well, I can very eas ily find their house.' . A hack soon deposited her in front of the pretty cottage on Lake street ; all was dark and Amy pulled the bell several times without hearing a sound from within. Where could Mollie and John have gone ? There was a light in the next house, and Amy rememberf d hearing her sister speak of her kind neighbor, Mrs. Gates; perhaps they were spending the pleasant evening with her, or at any rate, she might know of their whereabouts. Amy ran across the6niall grass plot which separated the two cottages and rang the bell. Mrs. Gates Boon explained matters. 'You do look a little like Mrs. Ackerman when you laugh,' she said in conclusion, 'so I suppose it's all right to let you have the key, but she wasn't lookins: for you until Satur day.' 'Probably she did not receive my postal, which I mailed yesterday. " 'Well, I'll give you the key. of course, but are you not afraid to stay alone in the house ?' 'Oh, I am not at all timid,' said Amy. 'But there'9 a gang of burglars about the city,' urged Mrs. Gates. 'But you are welcome to come in and sleep on our parlor sofa if you are afraid.' 'No, thank you,' said Amy. 'I will risk it for one night' She let herself into the deserted house, not without some thrills of fear it must be confessed. How quiet everything was. Oh, if Mollie was only there. She took a survey of the rooms, the kitchen last of all, where she concluded to look for something to eat. , 1 ' Hark! what was that? Only the silver toned clock striking the mid night hour. "That woman's talk about burglars has made me nervous,' she thought continuing her search for eatables. Hark, again! Surely that was a key turning in a lock, then a door opened and shut quietly, and there was footsteps in the hall, Amy's small stock of courage went down to zero. Instinctively she grasped the poker lying on the range near her. 1 ncii iiixuiiii tut; uuut uiifiicu, and a great broad shouldered man with blackened face and hands step ped into the room. Amy felt her self growing white with fear, but she raised her poker threateningly; for a moment they stared at each other in silence, then the man spoke. 'Who the who are you ?' Amy tried to shriek fDr help, but the sound died awav in her throat, she was too frightened to speak or move. Presently he came toward her. 'Will you please lower the poker or else move away from the sink ? I would like to come there and wash my hands,' he said looking very much inclined to laugh. Was ever such affrontery known before? Still speechless, Amy mov ed around toward what seemed to be an outside door. 'Don't glare at me in that frightful way,' he went on, with aglance into her terror 6tricken eyes. Then came a hearty laugh which reassured Amy a very little. Certain ly this was a most extraordinary burplar, or else there was some ri diculous mistake. She would flee to Mrs. Gate's protection at all events, she thought, dropping the weapon and tiiirainii awav at the huge bolt with trembling fingers. Uy this time the young man had finished his ablutions, and presented quite a different appearance. 'I am Mr. Ackerman's brother,' he said, politely ; 'he asked me to remain in the house to-night, as a means of protection in his absence.' 'Mr. Ackeeman has no brother,' contradicted Amy, stoutly. 'Are you sure of that?' 'Certainly I am. Mrs. Ackerman has just made me a visit; she would have mentioned him if such a person existed.' 'Can it be that you are Aunt Het ty?' 'Aunt Hetty, indeed.' Amy was -finding courage and voice last enough now. 'I beg your pardon,' said Tom ; 'but Mollie told me she was going to visit her Aunt Hetty, and you said she had been visitingyou, hence my my mistake.' 'I am Mrs. Ackerman's sister.' ' "Strange I never heard her speak of you. However, I am very sorry I frightened you, Miss Miss Arden, and if you will allow me I will ex plain matters. I am hook keeeper at Bolton's hardware establishment 'You looked more like a boot black,' interrupted Amy. 'Or a burglar,' added Tom. 'Well, as I was saying. I am book keeper, but there was a press of work in the foundry to night and as they hap pened to be short of hands I offered to stay and assist; this accounts for my late arrival, also for my black ened face and hands.' He looked very much like indulg ing in another hearty laugh, but re strained himself at Amy's white, dis tressed face. . 'I am afraid I was rude,' she said, but it was each a shock to me, I am very tired and' Tom sprang to her side, or she would have fallen from Bheer ex AUGUST 1, 1883. haustion. He helped her into the parlor, brought wine and refresh ments from Mollie s generous store room, and they were soon talking matters over quite calmly. It was after two o'clock when Tom propos ed to go and ask Mrs. Gates to come over for the rest of the night; but Amy protested against this, saying she was not afraid it ce would re main in the house. Mollie was almost beside herself when she came home and found bow affairs had had gone in her absence, crying one minute over Amy's fright, laughing the next overTom's graph ic description of the same, it was some time betore they settled down into anything like quiet As the days and weeks went by, Mollie could not determine whether certain plans of hers were to prosper or not Tom spent all his evenings with them, but he and Amy were always on contrary sides of every question and they tantalized each other so unmerciinuy tnat poor Mollie sometimes despaired of their being mends, not to mention a near er relation. They were all together as usual, one evening, and Tom, for the hun dredth time, was describing Amy's appearance on that memorable even imr when 6he nearly brained him for a burglar. "And little did I suspect then,' he went on soberly, 'she would ever have the privilege of brandishing the poker over me tor lite. 'What do you mean,' cried Mollie, Etaring first at lom s solemn visage and then at Amy s nusnedeneeks. 'Just what I said. Amy and I are goingtosetup housekeeping in the opposite cottage, where I suppose she will continue to flourish all sorts of murderous weapons at me. 'John, darling, it's coming about exactly as we planned,' shouted Mol lie. springing up in excitement. Well, it did come about as Mollie desired. Mrs. Amy even made car dinal the predominating color in her parlor, and it harmonizes charming ly with the dark beauty of its mis' tress. The sisters are inseparable, and as happv as two mortals can ever expect to be. Tom is something more than book keeper in the Bolton hardware business now, and he and John are talkingof buving two hand some properties in the suburbs of the city. Mollie declares she would rath er remain in th6 little home on lake street, but what woman was ever proof against a handsome establish ment in an aristocratic neighbor hood ? Not our ambitious little Mollie, I am sure. Tbe Many Things into Which I'utH-ns) Made. A tall man, Aith sharp features and a thoughtful air, sat it) a small study, and gazed gravely at a brown object that lay at his feet. "It is a paper railroad cross tie," he said. The reporter raised it with some difficulty. It was of very close fiber, and so very highly polished that it resembles rosewood. The inventor tapped it with his nail, and said : "It doesn't look much like paper, does it?" ''It seems, more like iron. Is it possible that it is made of paper?" "Oh, yes; alarmed everything can now be made of paper. A paper ball can be rendered so solid that nothing can indent it but a diamond tool. Car wheels are now made of paper. Its strength is astonishing. You can suspend iJo'J pounds from a Bank of England note and it will not part But tubs, pots, plates, knives, forks, cooking stoves, print ing presses, steam engines and chim neys are made of paper nowdays, and there is absolutely no limit to the uses to which it can be put" "Have paper cross ties ever been used?" "Not yet. The cross tie is my invention." "How did you happen to think of it?" "Well, I didn't happen to think of it, exactly. 1 started out deliber ately to invent a substitute for the wooden cross tie or sleeper, and I kept steadily at it until I was suc cessful. I thought of paper. There are scores of mills in the country where paper, straw, prairie grass and other fibrous substances are converted into straw board. The process is simple. The straw is re duced to a pulp and run out into boards. These 6traw boards are sold all over the country aa substitutes for wood. My invention utilizes straw board. The cross tie is con structed of sheets or layers ot paper, or straw board, laid one upon anoth er, cemented and compressed into molds. It makes a perfect cross tie. It is practically water and fireproof, as it is manufactured under 5(A) de grees of heat Atmospheric changes have no effect on it. I can be made as cheap as wood at the present time, and will last twenty-fiveyears." AVir York Sun. Safe Burglars Foiled. Greexsbl ro, Julv 25. This morn- mg a daring aiiempi was maae to rob the safe of the Union Hotel in this place, ' which was almost suc cessful. The burglars succeeded in drilling a hole an inch in depth about two inches from tbe combina tion dial, and some of the wheels of. the lock were cut so badly that the safe could not be opened.

He and his son were carrying a plank for a scaffold ing to be used in the construction of a building on South Queen street, when the boy slipped and fell and the other end of the plank struck the father in the stomach. He was taken home, where he died of his injuries this morning. The reason given by a Camden, X.

The best quality of hay is obtain ed by cutting the gras3 while in bloom. For this, mowing machines are indispensable. The scythe may do for general use. In choosing a mower, look to lightness of draft, strength, and simplicity of construc tion. As between equally good ma chines, it is best to buy the one made nearest home, for convenience in making repairs. It is safe to have the cutting bar ahead, and to one side of the driver. The tedder is a valuable adjunct of the hay field, greatly facilitating the drying of the grass. The best hay is made by curing in the cock. Sweating improves the quality of hay, and prevents its heating in the mow. Cut grass that has had the sun for one day may be put in large cocks, where it will keep well for a week it necessary, if protected from rain and dew by "caps. These caps are easily made from common sheeting, and frequently pay for themselves the first season. .The horse-fork is a great labor saving implement, and should he more generally used, liaying is soon over, and everything should be employed that aids in the hurry of this work. Fruit Stain. In the season of fruits, the nap kins used at the table and often the handkerchiefs and other articles will become stained. Those who have access to a good drug store can pro cure a bottle of Javelle water. If the stains are wet with this before the articles are put in the wash they will be completely removed. Those who cannot get Javelle water can make a solution of chloride of lime. Four ounces of the chloride of lime is to be put into a quart of water in a bottle, and after thoroughly shaking allow the dregs to settle. I he clean liquid will remove the stains as read ily as Javelle water, but in using this, one precaution must be observ ed. 15e carciui to thoroughly rinse the article to which this solution has been applied in clear water before bringing it in contact with soap When javelle water is used this pre caution is not necessary ; but with the chloride ot lime liquid is it, or the articles will be harsh and stiff. War Cloak. The Sandwich Island chiefs used to wear on ceremonious occasions a cloak made of feathers, each fastened separately into a loop of fine string so that the inside ot the cloak re sembled a closely woven nei. So smoothly were the feathers laid on the surface that the cloak appeared as a rich, glossy fabric. Miss Cum mings, in her recent work of the kingdom of Hawaii, entitled "The Fre Fountain," gives the following description of the feather cloak ot the great Kamehameha, which is still worn as a coronation robe: "One very rare and precious feath er was reserved uy the nunters tor the king, who alone had the privil ege of wearing a cloak of these glos sy, golden treasures. Ihe bird which yields this price less treasures, is Oo, or royal bird, a species of honeysucker peculiar to certain mountainous districts of these isles. It is of glossy black, and its tiny golden feathers are un derneath the wing, one on either side. The birds are now very rare, though the method of gathering the anuual harvest does not involve their destruction. It was the great Kamehameha I. who first thought of saving their lives, and ordered the bird-catchers to set the birds free when thev had plucked the two coveted feathers. "The feathers are only an inch long sharp-pointed and very delicate, five sell tor a dollar and a halt. Kameha meha's war cloak is said to represent all the feathers collected by eight or ten successive chiefs. One of these feathered cloaks had descended to the late king. It was a square of six feet ; and when tbe well beloved died in his prime, and lay in state at the Iolani place, he was laid on this priceless cloth of gold. "At the biddiDg of his father, it was wrapped round him as a kingly shroud. "He is the last of our race,' said the weeping chief ; 'it is his.' So the cloak, which according to Hawaiian estimate, was valued at $10U,UJO, was hurried with him who alone was entirely to wear it." Nearly all the sardines consumed in America come from the soulhea-t coast of Maine, where there sr- thir ty or forty canneries. The !i-h (.which are herrings) are caught by the cart load in nets, decapitated, cleansed in warm water, slightly broiled over a hot fire, packed in French labeled boxes, a half gill of cotton 6eed oil poured over them, the boxes hermetically soldered, and then boiled for two hours, complet ing the cooking process and dissolv ing the bones. Some of the estab lishments prepare from iKXX) to 4XX) boxes a day. The actual cost per box, including all expenses, is five sents. Packers' profits are from five to ten cents. The difference between these prices and what consumers pay has stuck to the fingers through which the box offish has passed. "What Made Him Tired. 'I fael so tired this mornin', I can hardly lift me arrum to me head.' 'Why, you seemed to sleep sound ly, Mr. O'Fagan, you ought to feel refreshed.' ' Yis, Colonel, I ought to be phalin' refrished, but me ain't, I's sawin' wood that is the fatagin occu pa- shun.' 'Sawing wood, why, when have you been sawing wood ?' 'Whin hiv I, is it?

WHOLE NO. 1672. THE BAD BOY. The editor and proprietor of the bad boy has been spending a week or two in Colorado, and from Den ver he writes to PecVa Sun aa fol lows : "The dispatches from Milwaukee do not tell me what deviltry the bad boy has been into this week, so I will not write of the bad boy till next week.. In the meantime all of you try and be good for my sake, and believe me, yours, with a hot box, and the themometer 98 degrees in the shade." In the same letter the writer has something to say about mining in Colorado which is well worth read ing: "Central is the home of Secretary Teller, or ex-Senator Teller, and it is the richest mining district and the hottest place to be found. The mines about Central are all gold mines, and the miners would not pick up silver, if they found it on the road. The town is built on gold mines, and the back yards of the res idences are rich with gold dust If this is not true, then they have star liars there. I was only there three hours, but I heard some of the most colossal lies from the most colossal liars that ever lived. They may have taken me for a 'chump,' but they give it to me raw. I was sit ting in the Teller House, exchanging lies with the local talent, for two hours, and never had a more inter esting season. They all knew me and 1 think the landlord, who is a Chicago man, put up u job on me. I went in the porter's room to have my boots blacked, and the porter brushed the dust into a pan, and when he was done polishing the boots he looked wise, like a bank cashier, and then handed me ten cts. I asked him what that ment, and he said that was the difference, though 1 could take the dust if I wanted to and pay him ten cents. I didn't understand him, and he said he es timated he would get 25c. worth of gold out of the dust of my shix?, and so he paid me the difference. Soon after that a setter dog came into the hotel office, all dirt, and be gan scratching his neck for a flea. The proprietor of the hotel snap ped his finger, just as Charley White does at the Flankinton House, when he wants a colored bell boy to get up and fly around, and the porter came up on the run with a pan and held it under the place where the dog was scratching to catch the du6t I didn't want to ask any questions, but I looked around at the landlord with an inquiring turn of mind, and he told the porter to take the dust out and wash it and see how much it panned out The porter took a brush and brushed the dust off the dog into the pan, and went out, and just as we were going to dinner he came in and said he only got thirty cents out of the dust off the dog, adding that the dog was getting unreliable. The landlord said the confounded dog shook himself before he came in. He said it was getting so you could'nt place any dependence on a dog nowadays. Such things as these always set me to thinking, and I thought how these Colorado people can discount us of the effete East on scientific lying, and I laid it to the air in high latitudes. I expect when I get up on the main range, a lew thousand feet higher, one of my lies can be used as a Sunday school les son." A Proper Use ot Wives. It is not to sweep the house and make the beds and darn the socks and cook the meals chiefly that a man wants a wife. If this is all he w ints hired servants can do it cheap er than a wife. If this is all, whsn a voung man calls to see a young lady, send him into the pantry to taste the bread and cakes she has made; send him tD see the needle work anil bed making ; or put a broom in her hands and send him to witness its use. Such things are important, and the wise youns man will quickly look after them. But what the true man most want of a wife is her companionship, syraa thy and love. The way of life, has many dreary places in it, and man needs a companion with him. A man is sometimes overtaken by mis fortune; he meets with failure and defeat ; trials and temptations beset him, and he needs one to stand by and sympathize. He has some stern battles to tight with poverty, with enemies and with sin, and he needs a woman that, as he puts an arm around her, feels that he has some thing to fight for, will help him fight; who will put her lips to his ear and whisper words of counsel, and her hand to his heart and im part new inspiration. All through life through storm and sunshine, conflict and victory ; through storm through adverse and favorable winds man needs a moman's love. The heart yearns for it A sister's and mother's love will hardly supply the need. Yet many seek nothing fur ther than housework. Justly enough, half these get nothine more. The other half, surprised above measure, obtain more than they sought Their wives surprise them by giving a noble idea of marriage, and dis closing a treasury of courage, sympa thy and love.

A young girl deeply regretted that she was so col orless and cold. Her lace was too white, and her hands and feet felt as though the blood did not circulate, After one bottle of Hop Bitters had been taken she was the rosiest and healthiest girl in the town, with a yivacity and cheerfulness of mind gratifying to her friends. A terrific snake story comes from Phnenixville, N. Y. Two men visit ed an old mine, when they saw some thing that looked like a stove pipe. Suddenly a great head, with eyes that looked like diamonds, shot high into the air, and a snake fifteen feet long uncoiled itself, and, with a leap, flung itself about one of the men, breaking his leg. The serpent was finally beaten oil and made its es cape. A curious case of sensitive skin has been observed in a female pa tient at one of the Berlin hospitals. It was found that if a name was written upon it with the nail, or with a blunt piece of wood, the flesh rose at once over the marked track to the height of several millimetres, show ing the writing very plainly. Alter a while it vanished. So many per sons h&ve thus written their names on ber body that she is called the autograph woman. A very pretty little story is being printed in some of the newspapers, telling that General Jubal Early picked up from the field of Manas sas a tiny blue eyed girl baby whose parents had both been killed by try ing to escape from their house dur ing the progress of the fight and that this "waif of the battlefield" is now the sole support of Gen. Early's two aged sisters, who cared for her and brought her up. There is not a word of truth in the romantic story Gen. Early says. Miss Mary Anderson made her appearance among the audience at the Olympic theatre, in London, a fortnight ago. The Courier Journal goes into raptures over her beauty. "Her face," it says, "is of the soft Creole whiteness "which giyes such immense value to dark eyes ; her hair of tbe brightest gold, and the expression of the countenance that of the purest and m,oat childlike in nocence. Never was th realization of the poet's ideal in the Dream of Fair Women so completely illus trated as by this new beauty." A cruel magazine editor returned the manuscript of a poem to a lady in New Orleans. She says : " I do not really believe they ever unfolded it to look at it, because, while re writing it an eyelash fell upon the faper and, instead of brushing it oil concluded to leave it there just to see whether they would read the piece. Well, sure enough ! when I opened the paper, there was my eyelash all undisturbed ! Now you know if those three half sheet, had been fingered the little eyelash would never have come back."
