Advice to a Young Man.
We don’t know much about it, of
1 course, but we should think, after a man
has been Secretary of the Treasury for
three or four years, aud had occasionally
“ dumped fifty millions of dollars” into
Wall street to relieve the money market,
; and had called in twenty million sixes
at one time, and bought two millions of
bonds every week, and disbursed eleven
millions one week and eighteen millions
the next, we should think it would gravel
him awfully to go back iuto his law
office when the Administration changed,
aud make out an abstract of a farm
away out in Buckshaw Couuty, and sell
it for an old woman down in" Kickapoo
Township to an old fellow out in
Waukindaw Settlement, and only get a
fee of thirty-two dollars, aud have to
wait four months for that, and then
have to take n sorrel colt for it. Per
haps the ex-Secretarics of the Treasury
don’t mind it; but we just say we don’t
believo we should like to get used to it.
And what’s iBOIC*, we don’t believe we
would l'lie to be President of the United
-States four years, and then, about three
days after the other President was
inaugurated, have a citizen point at us
on the street aud say to his neighbor:
| “That’s old ,” and hear the second
; citizensay, “Who in thunder is old ?”
' These things, my boy, do Desdemona
j seriously incline to keep out of politics.
And do yon keep out of ’em, also, my
son. Don’t be the fool who is imbeci'e
enough, and has little enough self
respect and pride of country, to boast
that he hasn’t cast a vote for twenty
years. Vote every time there is an
election; always think about aud have
something to say about the important
political questions of the day. But if
, you want to be happy, don't run for
: President. .Tnst gather an armful of
bricks aud make it lively for the fellow
who does rnu. Then you will do your
duty by your country, and a loving and
grateful people will forget you when
you are gone.— Burdette.
Lincoln’s Gettysburg Oration.
Four scoro and seven years ago onr
! fathers brought forth on this continent
i a new nation, conceived in lil>crty and
| dedicated to the proposition that ail men
are created equal.
Now we are engaged in a great civil
war, testing whether that nation, or any
nation so conceived and so dedicated,
! can long endure. We have met on a
; great battlefield of that war. We have
1 come to dedicate a portion of that field
1 as a final resting place for those who
gave their lives that that nation might
| live. It is altogether fitting and proper
j that we should do this.
But, in a larger sense, we cannot dedi
-1 cute—we cannot consecrate —we cannot
hallow—this ground. The brave men,
| living and dead, who struggled here have
' consecrated it far above our poor power
jto add or detract. The world will little
| note nor long remember what we say
here, but it can never forget what they
did here. It is for us, the living, rather,
to lie dedicated here to the unfinished
work which they who fought here have
thus nobly advanced. It is rather for
! us to be here dedicated to the great task
remaining before us—that from these
honored dend we take increased devo
tion to that cause for which they gave us
j the last full measure of devotion—that
; we here highly resolve that these dead
shall not have died in vain—that this
; nation, under God, shall have a new
I birth of freedom and that govern
ment of the jieople, by the people, for
the people, shall not perish from the
Forgetting the Password.
Numberless amusing instances might
| be related of the fix officers occasionally
find themselves in by forgetting the
I password. Two sentries were mounting
■ guard inside* the walls of the prison at
I F , one ta each angle, with strict or
• ders to detain any one attempting to
pass without giving the sign. The Lieu
tenant on his round of inspection passed
tli efirst sentry’, giving the word cor
rectly enough. When half way between
the sentries a sound on the outside of
the wall attracted his attention, and,
while endeavoring to investigate the
matter, the word quite slipped his mem
ory. Finding his suspicion groundless
he approached the second sentry and
was again challenged, but, in spite of
his utmost endeavors, he could not re
member the word. “Can’t pass with
out the word,” was all the reply given
him. Returning to the first sentry he
was challenged as before, blit, as lie
could not give the word, was not allowed
to pass him either. No entreaties could
pr vail. The sentries, not knowing but
that he was testing them, and rather en
joying the joke, it the truth must be
told, proved obdurate to all persuasion.
Here, then, he was kept all night be
tween the two, shivering aud cold, till
the gray dawn appeared, when lie was
relieved by the change of guard.—
Chamberz’ Journal.
The “Boss” Jockey in England.
Archer, the chief jockey in England,
has a larger income than the Queen’s
Prime Minister. His regular fee 3 are
825 for tiie mount if he wins, 815 if ho
loses and 810 for a trial. Those fees
are tlie smallest part of liis income, not
withstanding that he rides in a vast num
ber of races every year. In 1875, he
won 172 races ; in 1876, he won 207 : in
1877, ho won 218 ; in 1878, 229 ; in 1879,
197 ; aud in 1880, 120. He has not rid
den so many horses during the last two
years on account of a savage bite which
disabled one arm for several months.
The fees for races are, however, insig
nificant compared to the presents made
to him by owners of the horses he has
ridden. Gold watehes. diamond rings,
riding harses, dog carts, yachts, suits of
clothes, hats, cases of champagne, etc.,
arc quite common. Money gilts accom
pany these smaller testimonials of grati
tude. Hegot $5,000 from Mr. Lorillard
for winning the Derby, and Mr. Keene
gave Forciham 82,500 for winning the
Grand Prix of Paris. Still larger sums
than those have been given. The jockey
who won the Derby ten years ago with
Hermit was presented with $15,000.
The policy of paying such sums to
jockeys has been much criticised, but
the amount of money at stake is so large
that it is thought wise to protect the
{’ockeys against corrupt offers. Archer
ms only to ride his appointed horse.
He keeps a valet to assist in
changing liis dress. He trav
els from one race meeting to an
other in a first-class carriage, probably
the companion of the nobleman by
whom he is employed. In winter ho
rides to his hounds, or goes to town. In
1876 he is reported to have earned
Fair Play for the Hog.
If our forefathers had studied the hog
with any closeness, we would have boon
spared the sayings of: “Selfish ns a
hog,” “hungry as a pig” and “he cat
like a regular heg,” etc. To begin with,
the hog is not a selfish creature. Two
hogs will agree abont as well as two men,
and a hog who was taken along on a
steamboat excursion would have cause to
say to his porkers : “ You act like men
and women.” The hog is not a hnugry
animal. Give him three square meals a
day, and he is content, \> liile most mei
must chew, smoke and nibble between
meats and have a lunch at bedtime. To
“act like a hog” would be to mind one’a
business, go to bed early, and be satis
fied with the situation. The hog is not
a liar, hypocrite or dead-beat. He acts
on the square, is always ns represented,
and in disposition ho has few equals in
the human race. ITo has lieen misun
derstood aud abused, and it is time that
his friends rallied to give him fair play.
YYhen God would educate a mau He
compels him to learn bitter lessons.
He sends him to school to the Necessi
ties rather than to the Graces, thakby j

lature, at Harrisburg. While Mr.
Nyce and family were in the country
recently, his boy, aged three years, fell
and broke his leg. He recovered, but n
very troublesome stiffness set in and tie
could scarcely ne the leg. The injured
limb was rubbed several times with St.
Jacobs Oil, and the stiffness was so j
; much reduced that the boy was able to
j use bis leg freely. Dr. Knipe said it
< wa= the use of St. Jacobs Oil that cured
! the stiffness. Mr. Nyce himself used
j the Great German Remedy for tooth
ache with good effect, and also for a
| sprain and pains of rheumatic nature,
j and always with good effect. Mrs.
! Nyce also says stio thinks the Oil is a ,
splendid thing, and she always keeps it
j on hand.
