"ThtiH, you nee, my dear mr, without iier iH'iiujr at'all aware of the workings of our little schoine, I shall In- able to judjre of her fitness to ltiiie the wife of uiy won." Mr. Mercer listeneil rather dubiously to Mosok Morri.son, fW-Iiii); his ehin the w hile, as if he were not at all certain of the ultimate success of the aforesui.l "lit tle scheme." "Well, Mr. Morrison; that is, if you ix-nard the plan as prat tiial " "Practical? Why, uiy goixl friend, it's the most practieal tiling in the world. I am simply Mr. Martin, your old friend from the south. She never w ill d renin of any relationship between me and Joseph Morrison, I'm sorry Joe had taken this freak into his head, but your daugh ter really seems to have'inspired him with something ukin to the devotion of old time w hen you and I were boys, sir yes, sir, the good old times!" And as Mr. Mercer and Moses Morri son walked slow ly down the broad, box liordered garden jiulh, ttentimentaliziiiK as they went, upou the hackkueyed sub ject of olden times, w hile full mixjn seem ed to smile WHjajrishly ujain them from the edjje of the eastrn woods, a lijrht fij-iire raiwd itself tip froin the sheltering foliage of a full blossomed lilac bush with a tajK-r HnpT pressed close to that were all scarlet and dimpled with sup pressed laughter. Julia Mercer was a tall, exquisitely formed girl, with reddish brown hair, sparkling hazel eyes, and a complexion like cream and rose leaves; as she stole softly toward the gate, her pink, cham lery dress rustling among the shrubber ies, it might almost have put one in mind of the lienlus of the Flowers upoft a moonlight expedition through her do mains. "liny!" " Sweet, are you there 7"" And there was another rustling among the beeches that overhung the lowergate, and the (ienius of the Flowers was no longer alone. " Hush! He lias come?" "Who has come? Ihjn'ttalk in riddle, ( till" " Mr. Morrison, the father of my ador able suitor, Mr. Joseph, of the rubicund countenance and I'm to la- the subject of a stratagem." "How do you know ?" Julia's dewy fiaze'l eyes became lumin ous with merriment. "I 1 happened to overhear one.t wo or remarks as they were walking on'the other side of the lilac hedge. It seems I am to lie the subject to a sort of test, to try whether I am of sullicieiitly worthy metal to laj welded into Mrs, Joseph Morrison. Hush ! don't get excited, tiuy; there's no danger at all, if you'll only leave it all to me. l'apa-in-law is anxious to know whether I can be trust ted to make his Joseph happy: so he is to visit the house as Mr. MarUiin," from the Siuth, and oliserve me from an en tirely domestic vantage' ground. Did you ever hear anything so ridiculous in all your life?" And pretty Julia Mercer laughed until the very full moon seemed to laugh back at her in an irrepressible svmpa thy. " Hut, Julia" " Iut, tiuy, I insist upon lieing allowed to manage these matters for myself. There are times in the piloting of life's ship when the rudder must lie touched only by a woman V hand, and this is one of them. You w ill trust mo, dearest, will you not?" What heart so marble hard as to resist the apiattling softness of those tender, wine dark eyes? tiuy Hart wick's cer tainly had no such adamantine elements; so he only pressed the soft little jsarl of a hand in his own and told her to "do exactly as she please." Not having been led toex-a-cl the ad vent of any corn-winy, Miss Julia Mercer was, of course, taken completely by sur prise', the next day, when her father brought "an old friend" unexctedly to dinner. She was sitting curled up in the green moreen hollow of an enormous easy, chair, her hair r7i yiyyiVx, and a sloven ly morning w ntpH.r loosely lielted round her trim waist. "Julia, my dear," said Mr. Mercer, a little discomfited,-1 this is my friend Mr. ahem! Mr. Martin, from Alabama." Julia jumped up, w ith her handstoher pHjs-rs. "t ioodness. papa 1" she cried, not very graciously, ".who dreamed of its being so late?" " It is nearly four o'clock, my dear." " So it is ; but I was so interested in this delicious novel! I declare I've been at it ever since breakfast." Mr. Martin, from Alabama, " hemmed " violently. " rerhajis, Julia," ln-gan her father, "you had better go down and see the cook " t " I don't think I had better do anything of the kind," retorted the Miss Julia, curtly. " I'm not the kitchen girL We pay the servants; let them do their own work." And Miss Mercer subsided once mora into the depths of ber novel. "Not a very efficient housekeeper," thought Mr. Martin, from Alabama, as be looked around at the dusty furniture, dogWard music, and fadod IxxpjeU of flowers, whose rose strewed the neglec omer SOMERSET, ted mantels with withered pink pe tals. The dinner was not prepossesHing. Burnt steak, soden potatoes, and a pie whose tinder crust was nearly raw, pre sented no very tempting bill of fare to the father-in-law elect, w ho had an idea that cookery was one of the rarest and most valuable accomplishments of a young lady of the nineteenth century. The coffee, when it came, w as muddy and lukewarm, the fruit carelessly picked over, and the desert generally a fail ure. "My dear," remostruted Mr. Mercer, " how does it hapjK'n that our dinner is so oor? " " It's just the same as it always is, papa," said Julia, w ho, with her dimpled chin supported on both hands, was star ing absently out of the window. "Oh dear, how stupid this evening will be ! I to you suppose Tom Frisbie w ill come to take us to the oH-ra?" " You are not, then, a devotee of hap piness, as it is to be found in the unin terrupted seclusion of the domestic cir cle," said Mr. Martin, rather formally. " I detest the domestic circle," said Julia, tartly. "I, for one, can't exist without excitement." Mr. Mercer, conscious that his pretty daughter was by no means appearing to the liest advantage, rose hurriedly from the table at this juncture, and proposed an adjournment to the library to smoke a cigar. " I'm so glad you are going," said Ju lia, with a spice more of frankness than courtesy, " because I can finish this novel iK'fore any one comes in." " Your daughter is not very domestic, certainly," said Mr. Martin, with a curi ous smile upon his lips, as he selected a cigar from the tempting box held out for his choice. " You must not judge of a girl by one of her freakish moods" said Mr. Mer cer, with some confusion. " I'm afraid we've taken Julia, too much by sur prise." " Not at all not at all," said Mr. Mar tin, promptly. "A woman can never be too much taken by suprise when such an important matter as a young man's life happiness is at stake. 1 want to see Miss Mercerexactly as she is?" lireakfast was unwontedly late the next morning. Mr. Martin, from Alaba ma, who had an absolute mania upon the subject of promptness and punctu altiy, walked uneasily up and down the room, ever and anon consulting his silver watch. Presently Julia appeared, her bright hair loosely knotted tip, and her slipper down at the heel, while with wild yawns she liemoaned the miserable necessity of rising so early. "Frly!" echoed Mr. Martin; "why it's past eight o'clK-k." "I never rise until nine," answered theyoung lady, " except when papa mukes me." "Julia," reproved her father "what a very unamiable character you are giving yourself! " "But it is unfortunately a true one papa." "tiive us some coffee," interrupted Mr. Mercer, we are both in a hurry. Julia sat down to the table with pout ing lips, and a decided disposition to grumble. " How it is raining," she said "Oh, I hate rain, anil an east wind always gives me a headache. I know I shall have the blues all -lay long unless it clears up." " A well regulated young female, Miss Mercer," began Mr. Martin, front Alaba ma "It happens," partly interrupted Julia anticipating the prosy lecture, "that I am not a well regulated young fe male, sir, so you may as well kei'p your good advice for some one whom it is like ly to benefit." Mr. Martin, very red ami angry, pursed up his lips and drank his to I fee, in silence. Mr. Mercer could only mute ly wonder at this very novel phase of his daughter's generally sunny tem er. She was listlessly standing at the win dow, with one finger drawing careless rings against the panes of glass, when Mr. Martin bowVd a somewhat frigid adieu. Her own farewell was equally uncermou ously ; indeed she scarcely even turned her head as the stjut old gentleman from Alabama took his leave. But the instant the dtior was closed her whole face changed and brightened in its expression. " I think that impression can 1m hard Iv improved iiikhi!" she murmured to herself, as she tripped away up stairs to arrange her neglected hair and put on the w hite morning dress she was usually iu the habit of wearing. " But oh, I am so tired of playing a part. I'm afraid the genuine' Julia would have pcc-ied out af ter a while, if he had staid much long er." Mr. Martin, fro n Alabama, the while w hs gravely stating his mind to his friend as they walked together down to the steamboat orlice. " No, no, Mercer," he said, growing purple in the face. " I really can't listen to any such alliance. For although she is your daughter, and a very pretty lk ing girl, too I won't deny that she is so very slovenly and inefficient, and has, more over, such an extremely uncertain tc'iiperjhat she never could make my son Joseph happy." " Very well, sir very well sir," brus juely responded Mr. Mercer, himself be coming a little excited;, "just as you please. There are otlrer young men, I should hot?, in the world leside your son Joseph." "Certainly to tie sure," assented Mr. Morrison, senior, in dire perplexity. " Only" "I wish you a very good morning sir," said Mr. Mercer, bowing' as stithy as a Chinese mandarin, and walking away. So the two old friends parted. And when, a day or two subsequent to these events, Mr. liuy Hartwick made a formal proprosal to Mr. Mercer for his daughter's hand in marriage, he was agreeably surprised by an unconditional assent. "To be wire," said Mr. Mercer. "I had other views for her, or you should have been made more welcome to her, liuy, uiy boy, but they have all fallen through. There's no accounting for the audacity of Home people, and " But here he stopped, for he was getting intoa passion. . set ESTABLISHED 1827. PA., WEDNESDAY, " Take her, day" he said ; " and I hope you'll be happy." " I have no doubt at all on the ques tion, sir," said Mr. Hartwick, quietly. ILitii Furred Grave. Curing Hay. It has been determined by Dr. Yolcli er, the chemist ofthe Iloyal Agricultural Society, that w ith all the conditions fa vorable for prompt and active curing, there is practically no loss f nutritive elements in the change from grass to hay. When freshly cut the. relation of sugar and fermentable matter to tbje wa ter contaiifed therein is such, that no fer mentation is at first induoed. As the evaportion af the water continues the re lative proportion of sugar ami fermenta ble matter to it is changed, and then is the time, if the curing is arrested, that fermentation, and its consequent loss of nuiritive value, follows as a uutral result. It must be remembered that hay sustains nutritive loss, not only iu the manner in dicated, but by exposure to rains and from being iuijierfectly cured. The farm er who will, by his own neglect, allow at crop to lose it 4 nuritive value, has only himself to blame, and ought not to won der that his cattle do no better upon their food. The very best of grass may lie made into an almost worthless hay by carelessness and neglect in the cutting, curing and carting. Indian Corn as Medicine. Some good things are heard now and then in the elevated railroad cars, and the advice of a noted physician to a young man who complained of nervous ness, loss of vision, night sweats, loss of apietite, the other morning, which was overheard by a reporter, is one of them. "Throw away your cigarettes and eat a good bowl of mush and milk for your breakfast," said the lourned doctor, "and you w ill not need any medicine." In dian corn is essentially an American in stitution. As the staple food of 'our dad dies' it can really Ik? said to have helped to lay the foundation of this great repub lic. With this product, the hog, it was in the not very remote past almost the sole food supply of the rural districts, and the dishes that can be prepared from its various forms are of much greater variety than can be produced from w heat. Like Sambo's rabbit, it is good to toast, to bake or to boil, and can be fermented and tur ned into whiskey, but its stimulating qualities are best procured by making it into mush. It contains a large amount of nitrogen, has qualities) anti-consliputiiig and is easily assimilated. -Though orig inally the poor man's fod, it has come to be the rich man's luxury.

Several years ago on one of our .north ern bays, when, as yet, steamers were in frequent visitors, a certain small boat used to ply, touching at various points, according as its freight or the weather demanded. The crew was somew hat limited, con sisting of the captain, the first mate, whose name w as Barnabas, and the cook, John, who, when stress of work required, also acted as second mate. John was an excellent cook anil a fair ly good sailor, but he was arllicted with and impediment in his speech which made him somewhat backward in ex pressing himself, and was esecially an noying, if, for any reason, he became ex cited. At such times the less he was able to say it. Fortunately, however he could sing as straight as any one. One day the Captain was lx-low taking a nap, while Barnabas and John were running the laiat. A sudden squall hap-a-ned to come up, and a puff of wind brought the Ikshii around with such un expected violence as to knock the un wary Barnabas ovei board. There upon John rushed into the cabin in the wild est excitement to inform the Captain what had ci tired, but, as usual, he was una tie to get out a coherent sentence. " B b b -l " he stuttered, until the Captain, iu a rage, shouted : " Thtmdcration ! man, sing it, if you can't say it," and John catching at the happy suggestion, sang: " Overlaiard is Barnabas, Half a mile ustent of us." The Isiat was immediately put about and the luckless Barnabas recovered. Iti triiil Free l'rrn. Letters Of Recommendation. A Gentleman once advertised for : lioy to assist him in his otlice. Nearly fifty applied for the place. Out ofthe whole number, he, in a short time chose one and sent the rest away. " I should like to know," said a friend, "on what ground you ch(e that boy. He had not a single recommendation with him." " You are mistaken." said the. gentle man, " he had a great many : " "He wiped his feet when he came in, and closed the door after him; showing that he was orderly and tidy." " He gave up his seat inttantly to the lame old man who entered ; showing that he was kind and thoughtful." " He took off his hat when he came in, and answered my questions promptly and respectly ; show ing that he was po lite. " He lifted np the book, which I had purposely laid on the floor, ami placed it on the table, while all the rest h id step ped over it, or pushed it aside ; showing that he was careful." " And he waited patiently for his turn, instead of pushing the others; showing that he was modest. " When I talked with him, I noticed that his clothes were carefully brushed his hair in a nice order, and his, teeth white as milk. " When he wrote his name, J observed that his finger-nails were clean, instead of being tipped with jet like the handsome little fellow's in the bluejacket " Don't yon call these things letters of recoiunientlation ? I do; and what, I can tell about a boy by using my eyes for ten minutes is worth more than all the fine letters he can bring." iSAf, MAY 11, 1887. Judge Robinson's Rooster. Trial Justice Kobinson.of Anderson, S. C, has a unique way of fastening guilt upon the criminals that appear in his court. A negro was arraigned lieforehim (barged with stealing a hog. One ofthe witnesses for the prosecution was special ly alive in his efforts to fix the guilt upon the prisoner, and in an unguarded moment showed himself guilty of du plicity. The Judge took cognizance of this fact, and finding the evidence against the prisoner wholly insufficient for con viction, ordered him released. Believing strongly in the guilt of the jiarty he had spotted, the judge determined to try the effect of an old chestnut, and 'suggested to the large crowd of darkies present that the matter be left entirely to a very tine game rooster he had in his yard. The pmposition met the approval of the audience in the court room, and he or dered the feathered judge to lie brought iu, together with a large iron wash put The rooster and the pot both in, the judge assumed all the dignity possible and proceeded to announce, delilJerately and solemnly, that the nsjster would be placed under the pot and everylxsly in the house would be expected to touch it, while the negroes present would sing, " Let the old ark rock on." "The rooster," said the judge, "will crow when the guilty man touches the l,t." Hands were then cl;isied and a circlle formed around the pot, and " It the old ark ris-k on " was sung as only negroes can sing. The judge noticed that the burly fellow be had suspected was very nervous and was making his way to the door. He therefore urged him to enter the circle and touch the pot. The fellow declined, saying, "I am out of dat serai- now, and I want to stay out." He joined in the singing, but would not touch the pot. The older negroes re garded his conduct asconclusiveevidence of his guilt, and upon leing pressed he made a full confession ofthe crime, and was then sentenced to three months' im prisonment in the county jail. The ignorant negriMs now think Judge Robinson's trick is the triumph of geni us, and are ready to worship the game cock. They are also willing to leave all the stealing cases in that community to tlie infallible judgment of Judge Robin son's rooster. -- Cultivating Lima Beans. The lima beau is generally onsidered the most desirable of till the beans grow n and one that requires no little amount of skill to bring it to perfi-ctiun. Failure to secure a crop of this kind of lieans deter many from the attempt to grow them. As a rule the want of success in largely attributable to too early planting. It does best in a warm temperature, and should not therefore Ims planted until the season is somewhat advanced and the soil thor oughly wanned. Successful growers rec ommend that planting lie deferred until the first week in June, having the soil thoroughly pulverized and sufficiently dry, soas to avoid any danger of) its le comiug crusted over so as to impede the wming up ofthe bean. They should be well fertilized ; some recommend a liber al use of super-phosphate ; others a heavy manuring with horse manure, but we im agine it makes little difference w hat the manure is, if it is used in profusion. There must be enough to push the growth of the beans. The best success we ever had with lima beans was with the use of brush for them to ruu on instead of us using poles. When they get to be four or five feet high, clipofftbe ends so as to cause the growth of laterals and to in duce an early blooming. With projier at tention there need lie no reason why the beans should not do well. - - Raising Fruit. Mr. C. T. Herat, of Taunton, Indiana, writes to the Cicinnali fluzitfe: "Trees do liest on upland. The wood rijns better and the fruit becomes richer. If the soil is too oor, fertilize it with adies rot ton wood and old trees, on worn land, and every fall with decomposed stable manure. The color of the leaves in sum mer ought to do in the fall, in manur ing or mulching. It is beneficial some times, to kill portions of the buds to re tard the blooming, and make sure of a part of a crop. The subsoil water should be drained off. There is abundance of timlered land and other situations everywhere, to make fruit raising a success, but low or wet or too rich land will end in future. Now. what kind shall we plant? All sour chttrries. plums, w ill do best in mel-4 low, and sandy soil. Pears, as Clapp's favorite, Flemish, Beauty, Howell, Buf fum,etc, ; apples, Rambo, August lippiu, and many others, according to taste or notion. The trees above named w ill do to plant, if cared for ; and I have to say that I will set out about one hundred and fifty apple tress next fall, after keep ing them planted close together, so as to 'harden their hearts,' while as to pear trees, I will soon replace one hundred and twenty of Clapp's Favorite, Flemish Beauty, Howell, Kifer, Conte and a few Duehesse d' Angouleme, where the cold winter destroyed most others of twenty five kinds. The first three of the above bore fruit two years past, while the Bart letts, only sixteen feet off, were killed. 1 think of planting my fruit trees closer together, to maintain equal moisture, by the leaves shading the soil, believing that to be beneficial as clearing the under- brash from woodland proves that soon after the timlwr decays I have set my standard pear trees twelve feet apart from south to north, and eighteen feet from east to west, to protect them from the afterniKin rays of the sun; and none of them have shown any sign of mildew or blight. Still it is seven years since they have been set, out to the number of about five hundred , and, as I said, the first three kinds have been bearing two years, and are now again full of fruit buds.

A Mictions are not to teach us submis sion only, but victory. eralcl Feeding Cows. Some fanners and dairymen reason that w!ien the price of butter is low, it doesn't pay to feed well. They say, " There is no money in the business, any way. The cows will come out all right in the spring, when they get to grass, tiuess I won't put any grain in them, and no more hay than they can get along with." So they feed lighter ; probably do not shelter well, and the eowsgivea very small quantity of poor milk, from w hich the women folks can get but little butter, and that of inferior quality. Any farmer pursuing this course virtually loses all the feed he gives the cows, just as an engin eer would lose all the fuel he used under the boiler, if he should keep only steam enough to move the engine, but not enough to drive the machinery. A cer tain amount of food Ls necessary to main tain the life of the cow, and it is the sur plus beyond this "food of maintenance " that returns a profit. Leaving plows to rust out in the last furrow, or implements to rot in the field, is not more ruinous than half-starved cows under the pretext that dairy products do not bring high prices. If there is any time w hen dairy cows should ha,-e good care and gotal feed, it is when butter is low-priced. Dyspepsia. There Ls a demon w hich has been fish ed up from the "vast deep" of modern living. Our fathers knew but little about stomach ailments, as their food was ta plain and w holesome and their habits too regular to induce it. But it has become in its results one of the most dangerous diseases of modern times. The stomach is the mother of the whole body. It is the reservoir from which every fibre and tissue must be nourished. There are local ailments of the body, but trouble with the stomach is .mam felt throughout the whole physical system. Young men w ho leave home for acade my or college life need to be on guard a gainst this insidious disease. Heavy eat ing, with close application to study, w ill sxn produce mischief with the digestive machinery and leave, very likely, a life long legacy to poor health. Young people also who labor in stores and factories, while their home is a boarding house, of ten acquire the habit of rapid eating, which, in time, is sure to injure them. A meal which requires half an hour for prop er mastication cannot be bolted in five or ten minutes w ithout injury. I'oorly cooked food is a prolific cause of indigestion. As in chemistry tlw slight est variation from a grain formula w ill produce an entirely different result from the one w Might, so cooking, which is real !r a he iiieal process, requires great care ; ,Jtill to secure right results. I'rofes sioiuil eople and those engaged in any in-dMr sedentary employment, require much more care in this regard than those who are engaged in manual labor. As to evening "dinners" each one must be a law to himself. What one may do with im punity another cannot do and retain gtajd health. It may be "English" to have thejhearty meal of the day by night, but we should reinenib r that the environment) widely differ. The F.nglish people do not hurry and worry as we do. Their salt sea air, which is constantly felt, is more favorable to appetite and digestion. But it is well known that F.nglish people suffer greatly from over-eatnig, and as we are -.HHrsuad-ed, from untimely eating. When the blood is filled with acidity from indiges tion the gout with the tue screws of the inquisition is ready to torture his victim. We may not lie so liable as they to the gout, but how much better is chronic dys-wpsia, liver complaint or Bright's disease? The worst sort of indigestion is what is properly termed "nervous dysjiepsia." A brain-worker uses up the electro nerve power to such an extent that the stomach hxs not enough muscular ower left to digest the food. The first resnlt will Ik? acidity and heart-burn. If this is not corrected in time the final will putre fy and ferment in the stomach. Then begins the se-ond woe. and the third ser ies of w.x-s follows quickly after, which comes in the shape of a vertigo, palpita tion of the heart, kidney disease, or al most any other acute or chronic disease w hich may happen to attack the weak ness of the laxly. The only effective remedy is to avoid the cause of indigestion in time. But in addition to resting the nerve centres a little medicine is of use. When acidity in the stomach is indicated it should at once be counteracted by some alkaline ! '''"'y a magnesia, bicarbonate of soda or Home Htroll, r preparation of this na- lure. tv prompt attention to tins rule putrefective process is prevented from commencing, w hich is hard to control. If you cannot prevent this fennentive pna-ess consult your physician at once ami follow his advice, even if you live on gruel and avoid all excitement for a year. You will be richly repaid in re gained health. And however strong the antiseptic rem edy he recommends as a temporary check you had better apply it then the alimen tary machine into a brewery of fiaal fer mentation and putrefaction. But the great and only permanent panacea is to avoid the cause or causes of this disease. When Cincinn ttus, Washington, Web ster, Clay and other great and wise men returned to their farms in the interval of public cares and after their full retirement front such n-sponsihilitics. they evinced their hygienic as well as moral wisdom. Had others in public life now dead, fol lowed tliejr example, doubtless their lives would have been spared far lieyond the narrow limits actually reached. The care of a garden, a horse, a cow or even a dog will often relieve a mental strain in a wonderful way. "A merciful man show-, eth favor to his beast." There are men all about us who will justly arrest a man for cruelty to a dog and yet these same humane (?) persons will hurry their own bodies and those under them into untimely graves for the sake of a little more money or a little higher seat in the fashionable circles of society.

Blind musicians, "blind Toms" and blind preachers we often hear of, but a blind murderer is indeed a rarity. Such a person is now confined in the Soneea county, Ohio, jail. Charli-s K. Oaines was born in Sycamore, Wyan lott county, Ohio, fifty years ago. At the uge of four years heone day wandered from the door yard to the barn, where his attention was attracted by a litter of pigs. T:iis struck his fancy and he at once appropriated one, and this so enraged its mother that she rushed ut him, and liefore Lis screams could attract help, the enraged brute had eaten out his eyes. The child w;is rescued ami recovered, though his eyeball-; were entirely gone. In a few years he hudde- velojied a remarkable sensitiveness oj touch, smell and hearing. He hail a strong tendency to pit-cix-iousneM, and before he had gr jn up lecame the ter ror ofthe neighliorhisMl. He would wan der alxmt night and day without a guide, and was never known to get lost. He knew where every melon patch was, where the best apples, peaches and plums grew, and where the first lierries ripened anil was never backward about helping himself to these or any other delica cies. While yet a boy he was presented with a pair of game chickens by an old minis ter n.-tmed Spofford, w ho resided at Syca more. The blind lwy took gnat interest in these chickens, and raised more. It was not long till he had several game cM-ks trained for fighting, and would take them alaxit the country to pit against others. lie would l-t on his favorite and nolaaly could fool him alxut the result. Standing among the crowd he always knew whether his chickens were getting the worst or the best of the tight. As he grew to manhood he learned to drink whisky, and became ugly and quar relsome. In a fight he was no mean op ponent, as he struck straight from the shoulder and hit bis man every time. He learned the trade of bnxmi-making, and at an early age nioved to the village of Melmore, Ohio, where he piled his vo cation. In 1S71 Medora Sprag'te. a pretty girl, was graduated from the. Titiin High School, and became teacher. In the course of the following three years this young lady visited friends at Melmore. Here she saw Oaines, and, though he was repulsive in appearance, she pitied him. and it seems her pity was akin to love, for on August Is7". liaiues ap peared liefore the pi ol ate court and took out a marriage license for himself and Medora Sprague, and four days later they were married. They settled down to married life in Melmore, and to all ap pearances were happy and contented. Two bright, pretty daughters were born to them, and the husliand let drink alone and quieted down and went to work, oft en walking; Ut the city of Tiffin, a dis tance of eight miles, to sell brooms. After a time he took to drink again, and lie came abusive. The Presbyterians then got hold of him anil he quit drinking, joined the church and made many elo quent temperance srieeches, greatly mov ing his audience. Many are the strange things he has done. The writer has seen him on a steep roof nailing on shingles and working as well and as fust as the next man. He could find his way with perfect ease anywhere, could recognize an acquaintance at some distance before be spoke, rode horse-b tck recklessly, and played the violin finely. His career as a temperance advocate was short, for he soon w ent bavk to drink ing and abusing his w ile an I children. The climax was reached la.t August, when he went on a protracted spree, and his wife on le red the saloon keeticr not to sell him any liquor. The next day, Au gust 1'.', I iaines and his nephew, Nathan Iv helbeiy, got drunk on hard cider, and then went to the saloon and demanded whisky. Failing to get it they left and tried to burrow a revolver, but could not get one. They then returned to the sa. Uxm, each with a large stone, and again la-ing refused whisky they killed the sa loonkeeper w ith stones. The police ar-ft-sted Gaines in the cane field, and he was brought in hatless, coat less, shoeless and eyeless, with long hair hanging over his shoulders, and U-ing six feet tall, he looked like a wild man. For eight months he has Kit in jail, amusing himself w ith his violin. His trial w iii take place at the May term of court. -. A Story of Thomas H. Benton. Mr. Murphy, a veteran stenographer of the Senate, told me a story uIkiuI Thom as II. Benton I had never heare liefore, says a Washington letter to the Chicago Xi irx. There has always been a dispute whether Congress sii uld adjourn at mid night of the third of March or al noon on the 4th. The latter idea lias prevailed, although for inanv years then. was a struggle over it for each year. Mr. Ben ton was one of those w ho insisted that the session expires with the calendar day at midnight ou the .si of .March, and he used regularly to raise the point. One year when Orr, of South Carolina, was in the chair, Mr. ISeuton arose at mid night to a point of order, and declared that in his opinion the legal existence of the Senate had expired. Orr asked if the Senator from Missouri insisted upon his point of order that he was no longer a Senator, ( l!enton's term expiring on that day. i Mr. Benton responded that he did. "Then." cried Orr, the Sergeant-at-Arms will remove the gentleman from the floor, as by his ow n confession he is not entitled to it." The sally was gritted with laughter. and Mr. Benton responded that w ith the ermission of theS-nator frjtu South Car olina he would claim his privilege as an ex-tueinlter ofthe St nate, and remain. Lincoln's Iron Wedge. A rusty iron wedge, with the initials "A. L." rudely stamped upon it, was re cently Jouud in an ancient house near 1 lid Salem. It has been recognized by former companions of . Vis? Lincoln as the famous wedge which he used in splitting rails in that vicinity. The initials were made by Lincoln himself, in thepresence of J. J. Spears, now a resident of Talula. litmiou Titiiiwrifit. It seems paradoxical, but it is true, the floating debt will siuk a cororation. Tut It is impossible for that man to despair who remembers that his IIel(er is omnipotent. fmm Ihr Chiladelphia fiatlv SVirv A Lycoming county farmer, b!eed by the posneMtion of broad wrm and fat cat tle, and a tatter bank account, had given Lis five sons more pn-cioua than all else beside that the I'nion might be preserv ed. His name was Kan kin. His wife wad dead and Lis boys were; his only so lace, but w hen war was declared be felt as did Voliiiiuiia, the nutiier of ('onoia tuis, w iieu she said, ' Had I a dozen sons, each iu my love alike, I had rather have eleven di? nobly lor their country than one voluptuously serfeit out of action.' So the Rankin boys went to confront grim-visaged war. The life-blood of two of them made more fertile the rank groth of the Peninsula, and their bodies lay unclaimed amid the thousands who had gone down in the shock of battle. The bowed but not broken father came to the Governor's office in Harrisburg with Lis tale of woe. Andrew G. Curtin never turned a deaf ear to such as he. He said : ' You are too old a man to go after your sons' bodies. I will send a messenger for them and you can rest assured that yon wiil be enabled to give them burial.' And this was djue. After tiie second battle of Manaw-s the aged farmer again entered the Exec utive Chamber, and, without saying a word, seated himself. The Governor rec ognized him at ouce, and thought : 'Can it be that this old man Las been altlicted again ? He bade boil approach. The visitor's voice was broken, but his tears did not fall as he said : ' fovernor, another of them has gone.' For a moment iovernor Curtin could not speak. He silently wrung the horny hand of the despoiled lather. When he found voice, he said : You must not go; I will send for him. You shall see him again. And this was done. When the news of the battle of Gettys burg reached ilarrisburg Governor Cur tin traveled rapidly across tiie eountry and viewed that memorable coinlict. Af ter iu conclusion lie returned to Harris burg and was seated late at night in his nxiin, when again Mr. Rankin entered witriout a Word, and silently seated hint self upou a chair. ' My God,' thought Mr. Curtin, ' it can not be that the blow has fallen upon this old man again.' He could not bring himself to ask the question, and for fully fifteen minutes the two men sat in that room, their Leads upou their hands, and neither uttered a word. At last the old man said, as he steadied his vou-e : 'Governor, the other two are gone.' The other two ? This is terrible.' ' Yes, Governor, the other two. They have taken them all.' He wished a pass to enter the lines, tlutt he might bring home Lis silent sons. ' You are txi old,' said the anguished Governor. ' I will send for them, and they shall be taken home." And this was done. Alter I iovernor Curtin had returned to tins country at the close of his five years' residence at tne court of Russia, he was in Philadelphia when it was intimated to him that Mr. Rankin, who was still alive, would be highly delighted if his benefactor would pay him a visit when the ex-Minister was ou his way to his home iu Centre county. 5lr. Curtin said that be would comply with the wish, and when he reached the raiu-oad station nearest to the Lycoming county farmer's home, he found the old man waiting for him with a carriage. That evening the people of the surnmnding country, at Mr. IUnkin's bidding, tiocked to do hon or to the ex-Governor. The next morn ing, after partaking of a breakfast such as only a Pennsylvania farm house can pnaluce, the aged agriculturist invite' 1 Mr. Curtin to join him in a walk. He led the w ay to a wtxated knoll near the house, and atop of which was a beautifully sodded inclusure, surnainded by an iron railing, and within it were five mounds and five headstones. The old man point ed toward them, and simply sai 1 : ' Governor, there they lie.' Both men bowed their heads, and nei ther uttered a word. In a few moments Mr. Rankin turned away with a cheery remark about the surrounding country, and from that moment during the two days' festivities tliat succeeded Mr. Cur tin's arrival, the desolate father never referred to his sleeping sons. Pathetic, isn't it ? Different Methods of Crowing Old. A proverb in the Talmud says : " An old woman is a pearl in the family, but the bouse treinbleth liefore an old man." This has a meaning deeper than appear (n the surface. A weighty secret is wrap ped up in that proverb the secret of eter nal youth. The old woman Is a pearl be cause she I helpful, useful and agreea ble. She takes an interest in every one's welfare, and lends a friendly hand to the plans and projects of all. She doesn't al low herself to lose her hold on the af fairs of life. She 1 still an active factor in the household. The old man takes precisely the oppo site trend. Not always, but more often than ilia the old woman. He grows selfish and surly, thinks only of his own comfort, growls when any one makes a noise, and on every ptiMble occasion ver ifies the proverb by making the house tremble. The difference between their juetlnxLs of growing old is directly due to this: The woman never gets old in thought, the man does. Her activity of mind keeps off the foe, old age, while the old man actually invites him to come on and take possession, and he accordingly Comes. Wim (Hub.
