When we got back to our sanctum on Monday we scarcely recognized the place. The boys had brushed the dust of ages from the furniture; and had removed the cob-web like festoons that long had been the delight of the eyes of those who have a penchant tor such pendants; and they had, with artistic sweep of broom, frescoed the ceiling and removed evidences of care less housekeeping from the door. Of course we knew that it was not in honor of our temporary withdrawal, for such a thought would militate against the old proverb: “When the cat's away The mice will play.” We have learned that on the afternoon of the day on which this beautitying ot our headquarters, which we thought were past improvement, took place, the “boys had put an extra drop of oil on each journal of the pres-, and were printing the paper beautifully—every-mother’s son ot ’em (but one who was not in the secret, or some se cret had discarded his ottice toggery and substituted Prince Albert suits,! lnnese laundried liuen. etc. S’mother time we’ll tell why this was thus. _ CHURCH MOTES.

Not a few of the citizens of Charlestown have recently become greatly excited over the astounding facts, that several of their friends who had been pronounced by their physicians as incurable and beyond all hope —suffering with that dreaded monster Con sumption have been completely cured by Dr. King’s New Discovery for Consumption, the only remedy that does positively cure all throat and lung diseases, Coughs, Colds, Asthma and Bronchitis.

Some patches were put on our larboard side. If we could transfer a part of the pungency of those patches (planters) to our paragraphs this week some other anatomy besides our own might have blisters and be the better for it. There’s nothing like a fellow hav ing a touch of infirmity’s hand now and then. It gives opportunity for the mani festation of some of the good there is in peo ple, and the sympathy of such expi eased is a compensation for the aches we sustain.— And we were not without expressions of a kind as beautiful as a picture. But in cups of most folk there’s a tincture more or less bitter that sometimes serves as a tonic. For instance: just as we were contemplating the bright things in life and the frolics of a calf in the yard comes a note like the fol lowing : '• The times are hard and money is scarce, so you will please stop sending me the paper." Of course we immediately lost interest in the capers of the calf. Now it was not the lass in prospective of a year's subscription that troubled us. A couple of dollars or so is an insignificant sum compared with what we haven’t, or with what we ought to have, or with what we owe! But it was thsloss of a subscriber that wrought anguish in our soul ! Do you appreciate the loss ot a subscriber to the home paper? You know there’s a nice distinction between the loss of a subscriber and a lost subscriber. The former cannot be regained ; the latter may be found. Con sidering the former, as indicated by the lore I going note, it just made us so miserable that we were indifferent as to whether our clothes would fit or not. We got up all the same. Now, as to lost subscribers. Doubtless some of our contemporaries lose them ; but they ought to put bells on ’em before they lose themselves-chestnut bells ! r< the Children.

D. T. Whitney’s “Bird-Talk,” Marion Douglas’s “Arbutus,” Mr. Barnes’s “Spring Shower” and Miss Watson’s very funny “A Successful Gar dener.” The pictorial interest centers in Miss Eleanor Lewis’s article, "A Select Company.” An article, characterized by a delightful “readableness” is by the editor of Oiir Little Men and Women, Mrs. Fran ces A. Humphrey, and entitled “Cap’n Bos’ard’s Wife’s Schoolfull of anecdote, and descriptive of a celebrated dame-school in the Old Colony in the early days of the town of Halifax—an “industrial school” in the primal sense of the term—which sent out strong men and women East, W est, North and South.

Wednesday afternoon a dozen or more young ladies from Stephenson Seminary turned our sanctum into a “rosebud garden of girls.” The dear creatures,—we couldn’t get their names, for we were too busy get ting at the pretty expression of each one. A composite picture of the group would make a rare picture. Of course, after look ing at the machinery and learning how par agraphs are put up and put forth, they wanted to know something about the “print er’s devil.” Of course we told them he went about as a rearing lion seeking whom he may devour—and we verily believe our rosy cheeked devil could have eaten every one of ’em,—and the rest-of the office force, in cluding the editor, had a sort of cannibalic appetite whetted. The hoys are just hun gry tor more school girls. Just as we go to press our attention is called to a paragraph in the Shepherdstowr. KegisUr, wherein friend Snyder sympathizes with us— he always doe- when he finds us short of wood. Of course we would have seen his clever note if we had not been laid by for repairs—we al ways read the /;<;;.>/<• with pleasure and profit. Fact js, friend Snyder, we are out of wood ho cause our farmer friends think we do not need it if we can make things so hot for some folks without it.
