For sale !iby GEO. W. T. REARS LEY POETRY. BREAMS. Nay! Let them dream their dream of perfect love; It is the sweetest feeling, the most fair. This dower-like joy that blooms in the soft air Of Youth's bright heart, with lion's blue heaven above. Breathe naught of disenchantment: do not bring Misgiving to the bliss of blended souls, The whole Life's brimming river golden rolls Through primrose-lighted uplands of the spring. The blossoms of Eternity lie furled In the dim kindling buds of dreams that keep A buttering pulse within Time's broken slcen ; Dreams are not idle; dreams have saved the world. And therefore, to the many heights afar Our lowland eves that yearn and dream we lift, And to the isle-like mists that round them drift, And to the moon and to the morning star. ^itgtnia ir. If. B. U ALLAH ML Editor. Charlestown,.Jefferson Cotinty. West Va. January IS, 1SS 7. Jfoir to (irotr Mistletoe. Mistletoe is well grown at Streatham Lodge, in Surrey, one pyramid apple tree in particular, some seven feet high and six feet through, being a dense mass of it from top to bottom and laden with ber ries. The apple tree thus smothered bv the parasite does not hear any fruit, but this loss is compensated for by the orna mental character ot the mistletoe. I hose who wish to introduce mistletoe into their gardens should devote an apple tree ! specially to it. The berries from which it is to be grown should be gathered in i March or April—not earlier, or success may be doubtful—earlier in the season the berries are not rij>e. The branches on which they are to be placed should be from three to four years old. Selecting : a clear bit of bark on the upper side of the branch, rub the berries on it. Black birds and thrashers are very partial to . them ; therefore trees thus 0[>crated on should l>e netted. After a lapse of some three months the seeds will be seen to have thrown out sucker-like claws, when all danger from birds will be at an end, j and the young plants will after that rap idly increase in size. Young apple trees with mistletoe established on them may also be bought in some nurseries. Giving Ihc Vug a Character. J want to say with double-barreled em phasis that the pug is a canine idiot. He is of ignoble ancestry and is admitted to parlors nowadays when his great-great grandfather was forced to gnaw a lxmc in a quiet corner in the kitchen. The pug is the product of what i< known as ‘ in-breeding,” or in plain English, the offspring of parents closely related. Originally he came from the English turnspit and the bulldog, which accounts for his Hat nozzle and bow legs. His fe rocious aspect Itelies his character alto gether. 1 do not think the pug would bite anything but his daily supply of bread and milk and earomels. He is a pampered imposter. rlhc pug—taking the average run—is not capable of learn ing the most ordinary tricks. His brain power i-* limited, and you have probably noticed that, as a rule, he hasn’t sense enough to get in out of the rain. Ilis in stinct is about sis kinky ax his tail, and he is degenerating more and more every day. -« ♦ n e. that are fretful, peevish, v\\3 Vva cross, or troubled with Windy Colic, Teething Pains, or Stomach Disorders, can be relieved at once by using Acker’s Baby Soother.

It is an old saying that once a journalist always one, there being a traditional fasci nation about newspaper work which holds its sway no matter to what line of labor circumstances may lead. The railroad ex perience of Major J. G. Pangborn was mu h as to bring him in constant contact with newspaper offices, and his association with newspaper men was of so general a elm rat - ter that it was next to being back in Lis old profession.
