The Dumb Spiuner.
rhere lired a dumb spinner at Athelstanr Lea; j ^
A-apinning a mngic web was she. j ^
She spun and she twisted it strong and tight; j
It was fair and delicate, smooth and white. j ^
She built hor a dwelling, arched and high; |
Then the poor little spinner lay down to die. j c
The magic web was her winding-sheet;
It measured in length, three fairy leet;
And the house she had built became her tomb i
She lay all alone in the twilight gloom;
But when morning had come and turned to ;
Said the master: " Ah, 'tis a fine cocoon !"
Then they stripped from her body the robe so j f
rare, i o
To deck the form of a princess fair. I s
Now the silk sweeps over the n:Uuce floor, j (
And no one thinks of the spinner more.

" Perhaps I'd better pray for some! a
then/' said little Jane Blair, solemnly. '
" Really I think you had," said Milli- j,
cent, in a soft tone.
There she sat, staring into the little
fire on which their last atom of wood :
was burning, and seeing in tho red ashes, ! ^
nto which the light wood dropped so | jj
quickly, pictures of the p:ist. They had :
never been rich people, but always com- [ ?,
fortable. | n
Her father was a seafaring man?first i i,
mate of an ocean vessel?and her mother J
a tidy housewife, who made everything ; ?,
bright and cozy. How he used to sit' r,
telling his adventures to them when he j i,
was at home.
He would not have been a sailor had j"
there not been sea serpents and mcr-! V
maids in them, but nothing was too j
wonderful for those loving folk at home
to credit; and indeed he probably be- i t
lieved them himself.
The rooms hau been pretty with j *
shells and coral branches, and bright I
parrots in swinging cages and pictures i r
of ships upon the wall.
It had been so different from this j
wretched place in which the two girls
now lived. !e
But tl'.it was not all; the love was j
gone?the tender care that parents have |
lor their children. ! ^
The mother lay in her green grave in a i 3
far-ofjf cemetery; and who can point the ^
place of a shipwrecked sailor's grave? j_
Sue remembered so well how Tie sailed j.
away that last time?liow they looked *
after him, her mother and herself?how
they waited for news, and waited in vain, '
until at last there came to them a saiior, i j
saved from the wreck of the " Flying j
Scud," who told how she went down in j
mid-seas at the dead of night, ablaze 0
from one end to the other; and how
Roger Blair, the first mate, was among v
the missing.
Alter that, poverty and sorrow; de- i j.
parture from the dear ola home; toil in .
a strange city, sickness, friendlessness, i
and, crowning woe of all, the mother's j i;
death. i j
The girl had done her best for her lit j
tie sister ever since, but she was not a i *
rery skillful needlewoman, and could ; j
not earn as much as some others; and

?he, pretty find sweet and good, and (j
helpful in a daughterly way about the l
house, was not quite sure that she could ; |]
win bread for two in any way?bread
, . and shelter and fire. j
She was only seventeen, and a frail i
little creature, withjvery little strength :
in lier small body, and now that matters
were so bad, who can wonder that she j
almost despaired?
"I suppose it isn't quite supper time i ?
yet?" said little Jane again. She had !
ueen on her knees behind the bed for a J]
long while. " I wonder whether He I'
knows how nungry I am?" j11
" What shall 1 do?" said Millicent to j11
herself, as she looked about the room, t ^
"I have sold everything?the clock, the j k
books, even mother's work-box and the u.
parrot. There is nothing left. The jsl
child will starve before morning. Oh, V.1
what shall I do. j "
She arose and went to the window, (>.
and looked down into the street. It was J'
dirty and narrow, and swarmed with J1
liithy children.
Opposite was a little drinking shop,
about which :i blind man with a hddle . (1
drew a profitless audience.
Nothing sweet or fresh or pure met (l(
her eye there, hut between that scene
and herself a sudden breeze blew a j,(
beautiful screen, and there was wafted
!o lier through the broken glass :m exquisite
perfume. _ . 1 b
On the sill without stood a rose in a '
broken teapot. ?
She had picked up th<- slip among the ^
rubbish cast out by a neighboring gar- .
dener. and it had grown well in its j
handful of earth.
To-day it had !)loome?'.: a perfect rose,
exquisite in shape, perfume and color, i t|
drooped from the stem. and beside it a p(
half-blown bud gave promise of another , '
llower :is lovely. j
Until thi<* moment Millicent, in her * '
anxiety, had forgotten Iter one treasure. 1
Hut for a gentle shower that had fallen '
that morning, it might have withered
where it stood, for she had not even
watered it. ?
. Now a blight thought flitted through ^
her mind. J
She had often seen children selling /'
owers in the street, anil ladies and gentU
men seemed glad to buy them. j
She would force herself to be cour-! JJ
She would go out into the street with
ibis rose and its bud. and some one k
would give her enough to buv a loaf of
bread, or at least a roll for little Jane. 1 '
She would do it?she would. i ?
(Joel would give lier strength. ^
She tied on her hood :tnd wrapped her c
shawl about her, and plucking the flower t]
and a leaf or two, and 'that bright bud, j
that seemed perhaps the fairer of the i j(
two. hade Jane be good and wait for her, j (|
and went down stairs and out from-the j ^
dincy cross street into Broadway. j j,
There every one save herself seemed : (j
gay and happy, and well-dressed. ! ^
Sheseemed to be a thing apart?a black r.
blot ip all t Ills brightness. 1?.
She stood at a corner and held out her I _
flower, but it seemed that no one heeded j
her. i V
At last she gathered courage to touch j
one of the ladies that passed, and say: j t]
" Buy a rose, lady?buy arose! Please ! 0
buy a rose."
But the woman hurried by as the rest
It would not do to stand still. H
She walked out Slowly.
Whenever she. cauglit a pleasant eye t
she heid out her bouquet, and repeated '
her prayer: j,
" Buy a rose? buy a rose!"
But the sun was setting and she was j ?
opposite the City Ilall l'ark, and still no ,
i,?^ a 11
Wi&v 1I?U uuugiu liri nun IT|
She was growing desperate. 11
Some one should buy it. "
,Jane*shouid have bread tlmt night. ! *
"Buy a rose! See! Look at it! See ! !'
how pretty it is!" she cried, in a voice
sharpened by hunger and sorrow. I !'
Look! You don't look at it, or you'd j ?
huv it." - |J
" These street beggers should be sup-1.
pressed," said the stout man she had ; j
addressed. " Young woman, I'll give J"
you in charge if you don't behave your- P
self." '
" He don't know, he don't know." j .
said Millicent to herself. " Nobody
could guess how poor wc are. Oh, what! :
a hard, hard world!" 'J
Then she went on, not daring to speak
again, and her rose drooped a little in ! jj
her ringers, and^till no one seemed dis-: "
posed to buy it. ' *
In her excitement sue had walked
further than she knew. i ?'
She was far down Broadway, and before
her was the Bowling Green, with
its newly-trimmed grass plot and its 1 ^
^ silvery fountain. \ ?
A little further on the Battery, newly i J
restored to its pristine glorv, and on its
benches some bluc-bloused emigrants *
with round faces, and their bareheaded
wives with woolen petticoats and little .
shawls crossed over their bosoms and ,
knotted at the waist. [ 5'
As they stared about th*m, it struck j "
the girl that! they, fresh from the sea, j ?,
might be tempted by the fresh, sweet i
rose she held in her hand to spend a few j
pennies; but when she offered it to A1
them, she saw they were more prudent. j
They only shook fheir heads solemnly
and looked away from her.
And this last hope gone, despair seized j "
upon Millicent.
- She sank down upon a bench and be- j
gan to weep bitterly.
The twilight was deepening.
She waa far from home andjlittlc Jane. ; p
She was faint with weariness and
Beyond the present moment all seemed

She covered her face with her hands;
he rose dropped into her lap unheeded.
She cared for it no more.
Fate was so much against her that no
mo would even buy a beautitui flower
ike that of her.
There were steps.
She heeded them not.
There were voices.
It muttered not to her.
Suddenly some one said:
" What a beautiful rose."
And the words caught her ear.
She looked up.
Three or four seafaring men, with bunlies
in their hands, were passing by,
resh from the ocean evidently, embrownd
with the sun and wind, and with the
hip's roll still in their gait.
Sailors were always irenerous. One of

The man's face was half hidden by his

"You have helped me, sir," she said,

?we must either burn up less property did
or pay mo.ie for insuring it." On which j,ui
the Cincinnati Commercial Review re- n.n(
marks: "In this conclusion the In- tin
yuircr makes the common mistake that tilt
insurance repairs all the damage and se\
loss by lire, forgetting that the value of a c
property burned, whether insured or ]
not, is just so much of the wealth of the it
country annihilated. We must burn ag]
less property. We must exercise more ^
care in the construction of buildings, <r0(
must be more careful about exposing to

prevention and prompt extinguishment' .
of tires, and must promptly and severely . J

The English sparrow was introduced into we

country. The Scicntific American says on the ?
subject: "These birds, which have now
proved such a nuisance to America,seem to WJj
have no friends at present except those few
persons who were instrumental in introduc- Qf
ing them. The English themselves warned jm
us against the pest. Not long ago a great j|1(
outcry was raised against them by the farm- jf (
ers in Algeria, and now we have the same j,0
evil report of thern from the kingdom of wc
Saxony.- A recent English paper says that wc
'the Council of Agriculture of the latter th<
country has decided to petition the government

[esays: "The distance to which these
signals may be sent if the glass, no matter
how small, is only adjusted at the

indeed, is oniy restricted by the dip of |'ui

in this way. Last summer two sar
voung men, one of whom resided at ye:
Mamaroncck, on the Sound, and the }n
other eight miles opposite across the |)il1
Sound near Glen Cove, signaled to each ')U
other every day of sunshine without dif- VC1
iicultv by the use of mirrors, and they j1
found a small hand-glass served the pur- kir
pose quite as well as a larger glass, proaucinc
a brilliant flash of light. I bav.e
myself signaled from Staten Island to
Sandy Hook point, a distance of eleven
miles. With perfect ease. The Morse nf^
system of telegraphy is all that is needed, ^

long and a short dash, etc. When a word
is completed all that is needed is to shake ^t:l

A Party in a Garret.
[t was the last week in April and everydy
was planning May-parties. Many
ilossom on mossy knolls in the woods
i with wide-open eyes, wondering why
body came to claim it! But with the
wn of May-day came also disappointment
and vexation to ninny happy little
arts, for such a perfect downpour of
..Q tl.oro wna nnrl nn faintpst si?11 of
e clouds lifting.
"Oil, dear!" sighed Marion Day.
What shall we do? Was there ever
ything so provoking?"
' I'm sorry for you," her mother anered.
" Of coarse, there can be no golf
into the woods, but I have bpen think;
you might have a few friends here,
m shall harness the ponies and go for
2m, and you shall have the garret all
yourselves and picnic there."
Marion pressed back the rising tears
these words, for the garret was a most
[ightful place, especially in a rainy day
len the drops made such a merry pating
on the roof. It had four large
ndows, so there were no darksome cor
rs in jt, and the children could make
t as much noise as they pleased,disturbj
no one. You may think that a Mayrty
in a farret must be one of the most
lorn things in the world, but that
)ves that you have never tried it!
>reover. the carrot at Mrs. Day's was
1 of delightful old things stowed away
trunks?ancient bonnets and cocked
ts, satin slippers, with high lieels.and
inted toes, cay-colored dresses, and all
ts of faded splendor of nearly a cen y
5uch prettv masquerades as Marion and j
r friends had held often and often, up [
>re under the eaves, with no one to see
'm hut the doves that sat on the winw-sills
outside pluming themselves and
)ing in the sunshine!
tfarion was called by many of her
*nds "May," so you see in summer or
nter there was always a May Day in
vt house.
Tom went off in the double-seated
ny-wagon, and brought back half-azen
of the merriest children that ever
licked together in sun or shade.
?irst theie was Mabel Flowers, who
s also nicknamed May, and there was
itty little May Meadows and .May
nks; then there was Rose Mason! ancl
olet Farley and PaisyFleteher. Wasn't
i real floral party ? But the funny part
it was, no one thought anything about
>ir names till they were eating their
:nic-dinner. This was set out on the
) of an old sea-chest covered with
.Timson and white table-cloth, and
idenly Marion exclaimed, "Well, if!
s iaii't the queerest thing that ever j
?s! We've got flowers enough. See,
e's May Flowers, and a Rose anil .1
isy and a Violet, and I'm May Day!''
would like to tell you everything they
i to amuse themselves at that party,
L it would make my story too long,
1 beside, you can imagine what a line
le seyen little girls miejit have, if given
! freedom of a garret, with seven dolls,
en picnic-buskets full of goodies, and
hina tea-set.
f $ou can not, then I advise you to try
for yourselves, and I think you will

A Tunisian Harem.
V letter from Tunis, Africa, says:

rfeetly magnificent, as well as their .
trdrobes, hut they did not seem happy.

to sit on. But those of the wealthy '
ve European furniture, pictures and
irks of art. The women sat on divans

ire given chairs and sofas. With all
?ir splendor, however, they looked
serable and unhappy. They cannot

Judge Asa Packer died at Philadelphia, aged point
seventy-two years. Mr. Packer was born in the ci
Mystic, Conn., from where when about sixteen is tan,
years of age ho journeyed on foot, with all his 'pj,
earthly possessions done up in a knapsack on that 1
his back, to Susquehanna county, Pa., where Mich
he apprenticed himself to his uncle, a caqien- jjgi, v
ter. In two or three years he had mastered terin]
his trade, and came to New York to work at mec]]
it; but the city was not to his taste, and he
returned to Susquehanna county. At the age
of twenty-three he married Sarah M. Blakelec, (
the pretty .daughter ol a fanner living in the
neighborhood. For four years the pair earned
only a scanty subsistence, young Packer work- ^
ing a small larm and doing odd jobs at his Cock
trade. At tho time of the opening of the Le- <}ent
high canal, in the spring of 1833, he became a the s
canal-boat driver. With his earnings he grad- to th
ually was enabled to buy interests in a number jjr ]
of boats, and retaining these he gave up driv- ja]ftti
ing unci opened a atoro and a boat yard. Alter- amet
ward he contracted for the building of locks in t
tlie upper Lehigii, and soon his lame as a con- 0j- |jj
tractor became great throughout the region app0
In 1838 he built boats at Pottsville for the ^dj0
transportation of coal to New York direct. In jy,

brotlier, Mr. Packer removed to Mauch Chunk, Xrea
and lor many years engaged in the shipment 0j
oi coal. In 1852 he alone began the building that
of the Lehigii Vidley railroad. In 1855, when is
it was completed, he was all but ruined, but, COnai
aided by Commodore Stockton, he survived Trea
his temporary embarrassments, and his road tjj0 a
rewarded him to that extent that for many Lqjii

How Nihilist Papers are Printed.
The chief Nihilist organ, which is S
landestinely distributed throughout fc
tussia, is entitled Semla i Swaboda cj
Country and Liberty), and is printed in ai
, quarto form. It claims to hold juris- y
liction over everybody. It warns, oi
hreatens and pardons right and left, and n
fives prompt, accurate information re- c<
r>or?fi?irr iVio onrr-winirnnl-. nf ttfl aAntenp.pfl. ly
vhicii are those of the revolutionary
:ommittee. It is found everywhere. It li
s laid by unseen hands on the master's P
able, is unexpectedly discovered among
he bankers, registers, and the Imperial
Councilor is astonished to meet with it 0]
imong his papers; it is slipped furtively ft
jetween the slieets of conservative jour- u
lals?in a word, it finds it way as if by *
inchantment on the tables of the cafes b
md into the private houses of rich and &
Door. It appears twice a month, and "
idvertises for subscribers. It mentions fl
;he Nihilist pamphlets which have apaeared,
and informs the public that ?
jthers bearing this or that title are
Hioitlv to be Dublished. the prices of ?
which are given, but the editor'contents ?
tiimself with designating the place at
which they can be bought as the "wellknown
place." On the day after Gen- :
iral Mesentzeff was murdered, the Semla
i Swaboda appeared illustrated with a
large cartoon, in which the general appeared
as lying in state, the first page
being occupied with a kind of proclamation
giving the reasons which had decided
the committee to pronounce sentence
of death upon him. Three days
after the secret printing offices in St. 1
Petersburgh were discovered by the Russian
police a man was assassinated at
Moscow, but who he was and why he
had been murdered remained a mystery
till the Semla i Swaboda published the
following notice: "On tne ninth, the
traitor Reinstein was executed in the
Moscow Hotel, at Moscow. Reinstein
rlior.lnao/1 tn tVip nnlip.p the whereabouts
of two of the printing offices. We have
therefore killed him. The government
need not boast of having made any great
discovery. It has found nothing of any
value. The editor's, portfolio being
seized has certainly caused us some inconvenience,
but as we never sign any of
our articles, the affair has no further
importance. It will be useless to offer ,
gold; traitors will not be found in our
ranks. Reinstein was onlv an agent?a 1
newspaper distributor. We have at our .
command such considerable sums of I
money that we can resist all attempts at
bribery. The execution of Mesentzeff
cost us 6,000 roubles, Krapotksn nearly
as much; nevertheless, we still possess
400,000 roubles for the accomplishment
of our work." (
Roch, the general executioner ol
France, followed his manv victims recently,
at the age of fifty-five. During
the eieht years that he presided over the
Sii'llotine he had cut off fifly-four heads.!
is salary was $1,600 a year, with the
addition of $2.50 on working days.
Dr. E. B. Foote, in his Health Monthly,
says the tenement- house reform inauguratoA
in XTow Ynrlr i<5 u. /noH movement. :
but that while " well-to-do people generally
are becoming wild over their plans
for delivering the poor from their illventilated
apartments, their own houses,
churches, lecture-rooms, places of amusement,
etc., are choked with foul air. In
most of our large churches, in coli
weather, more attention is given to
warmth than to the purity of the air.
As a rule, the lecture-rooms of our medical
colleges, which ought to be models
in this respect, are as bad or worse than
a cheap show-room; nor can you go into
a counting-room or other business place
on a January day and not find that more
attention is given to heat than lo ventilation?the
thermometer often marking,
eighty degrees or over."
Protect the System from Malaria.
It i? possible to do this even in regions of
rnuntrv where mi<tnnm ia most rife, and where
the periodic lereta which it causes assume
their most formidable types. The immense
popularity ol Hostetter's Stomach Bitters is
very largely attributable to th? fact of its ofllcacy
as a remedy for chills and fever, bilious
remittents, and as a preventive of the various
lorms ot malarial disease. In those portions
ol the West and South -where complaints ot
this nature prevail, and in the tropics, it is
particularly esteemed lor the protective influence
which it exerts; and it has been very
widely adopted as a substitute for the dangerous
ana comparatively ineffective alkaloid, sulphate
of quinine. Fhysioians have not beeu
among the last to concede its merits, and the
emphatic professional indorsements which it
has received have added to the reputation it
has obtained at home and abroad.
A Myiwry iCxplxtlucdT
Parlor scene: Mrs. Brown, who has spent
the summer among the White mountains in
search of health, and who seems to have
searched the whole mountain side without being
able to And a pair ot blooming cheeks or j
an inch ot healthful skin; Mrs. White, who !
has remained at home because her husband i
could not ufford to go, but whoso fresh com-1
plexion and blight eyes seem to have caught j
their bloom and' brightness from mountain j
Mrs. Br~?Dear mo, Mrs. White, how well j
you aro looking! II you will not think me
impertinent, let me ask how you can keep so
healthy in this dreadful city? I have been to
the White mountains, go there every summor,
in fact, and I can't keep off the doctor's list at
Mrs. W. (smiling)?I'll tell you the whole
secret, Mrs. Brown. You remember how
poorly I was last spring, some days even being
confined to my bed. Dr. told Mr.
White to send me to the mountains, but I knew
he couldn't afford xit, and I tried Dr. Pierce's
Favorite Proscription. Its effects wero so
marvelous that I also tried his Golden Medical
Discovery, to cleanse my system. In my
opinion, one bottle of the Prescription and the
Discovery i3 better than six weeks of the
White mountains lor a sick woman. I have
only been out ot the city a week during the
wholo summer; then my husband and I went
to Buffalo and stopped at Dr. Pierce's Invalids'
and Tourists' Hotel. The baths and mechanical
apparatus for treating patients were
alone worth goiug to see. Besides, our accommodations
wero better than wo had at Long
Branch List year, and the drives and scenery
are superb. Let me advise you to use Dr.
Pierce's Favorite Prescription, and try the Invalids'
and Tourists' Hotel next summer instead
of the White mountains.
