'Follow tlie Tclcsrrn|>li Poles, Johnny.'
"I)o you think you bad better try to
pet home, Jonny?" asked Grandpa
Earle, looking from his sick-chair out
of the window near him. "I am
afraid it may snow, and the way home
would bother you."
"I wouldn't care, grandpa," said
Johnny, "but I told mother she might
expect me about dark; no, I said half
"And that i3 dark, Johnny."
"I know it; and if 1 can: get home
sooner, so much the better! She will
worry about me, you know, and I hate
to have her do that."
"Yes, I suppose she will worry," replied
Grandpa Earle, remembering
that his daughter had lately moved into
the town and had still the stranger
feeling. Her husband, too, was at sea.
and she and Johnny were the only ones
iu the house.
"I see, 1 see how it is," said grandpa,
"aud your mother will be louely without
vou. Do you know th$ way?"
Up Squirrel road?"
"Yes, all the way over tliie hill; but
if anything should happen^ snow commiug
thick and bothering you where
the road forks, as it does several times,
then remember and don't take any
risks in travelling by night, but follow
the telegraph poles, Johuny! They
run along side Squirrel road aud take
you right over the hill. Don't forget,
"Thank you, ^ will remember."
Johnny was soon outof the houseand
tramping along Squirrel road.
"Look!'' he said; "what is that?"
Something white on his coat-sleeve
a snow flake! then came another,
another, and soon how fast they flew!
But there were the telegraph poles!
"They'll bring me home," murmured
Jonny, aud he trudged on.
In a few moments he heard a voice,
and then somebody hurrying and panting
"Hold ou, Jonny!"
"That you, Fred Bently?"
"Fred Bently, and nobody else."
"Goiug heme, Fred?"
"Nowhere else. I went over to the
apothecary's to get some medicine for
They trudged along side by side,
while tiie snow thickened rapidly in
every direction. It grew dark rapidly,
There, though, w<jre the telegraph
poles, After a while they came to a
road turning to the left.
"What is it, Fred?"
"This road goas down?here?in
that direction, don't it? Here Fred
pointed with his band.
"It starts in that direction, but I
can't say that it keeps on; can you?"
"No, but?I?think it must bring us
out near our home, and if it does, wby
it must be shorter than squirrel road."
"Do you know?"
Fred bud not lived long in the neighborhood.
"My grand father only spoke of Squirrel
road, ond said one bad better not
take any risks in travelling by night,
and if?if?it got to storming bad, ami
so on, and I couldn't see very well the
road and got confused when it folks,
why, follow the telegraph poles."
Fred was a wilful boy, and rather j
"Well, I am going to take this road !
that branches off. It goes about where j
I think my home is, and any way I'
can't get lost bud. Comealoi.g! You'll,
get bothered agaiu down in the place
where the road l'alks."
"No, [ can follow the telegraph
"Well, good-by, old Prudence."
Jonny laughed good-noturedly, said
good-bye ami, tramped ahead. He
reached the next fork in the road",
and he would have been greatly perplexed
had it not been for the telegraph
poles. The shadows and the snow!
thickened about him, but they had a
good-natured way of rising up and >-ee- j
tiling to say, "I am your friend, Johnny."
"Wish," said he, in ft little while,
"I could have persuaded Fred to come
with me; 1 don't feel easy about him.
1 mean to stop back to the fork in the
roads and see if?"
What to see he hardly knew, even ;
if lie could see onyl hing; but he had j
a strunge feeling' that lie had better go,
and lie started off.
"Hark! what is that?" he said, at the
fork in the roads. Did he hear a voice!
of!'in the lonely woods,?
"Yes, yes!" he cried, excitedly, and
lifting iiis voice lie shouted, "Hul-loo
He had his arm round a telegraph
pole as he shouted, and he felt very
brave and confident.
Soon there came a reply to Jonny's
shout, and a second oNo, and then several
nalloos, the cry echoing closer, and
closer, and at last Jouny saw a black
thiii# approach i 111:.
"That you, Fred tfently?"
"Thatyou, Johnny Evans?"
The two boys were glad to see one
another, and this time Fred was very
glad to follow the telegraph

"Where did you go?"
"I don't know, hut into some kind
of swamp, 1 gue>s, for 1 sank down
through the snow, and then I went into
water over my boots. 1 dont care
I am all right now."
The hoys pushed on. The snow was
thicker than ever. It was darker, too,
than ever. The poles could not be
seen fitly feet away. But when uncer
tain by reason of any road forks, the
boys would hunt for a pole, put their
arms about it and cry, "Here's our old
They would push along from pole to
pole, and so each of the boys got safely
home. Johnny's mother was relieved
of a burden of auxiety when
she heard his footsteps in the entry,
and Fred's mother was helped very
much by the medicine.
Jonny told his grandpa about his
tramp over the hill in the falling,
thickening snow, and in the dark.
Graudpa heard him interest. Then
he said, laying his hand affectionately
on ineuoy sneau, "jjtutmui. jonnny,
be faithful to your Savior, and when
you are perplexed and don't know
what lo do, take no risks, hut follow
the telegraph poles, Jouny."
"Why, prayer and your Bible. Jlionny,
and Sunday and the house of God
and the Church of God; they rise up
likeguideboards, wayraarks, beacons,
and If you follow them, you will get
home to heaven."
"I'll,try, grandpa," murmured Jhonny
Grandpa Earle did not stay long upon
the earth, and when Jonny looked
after his death upon the face so still
and peaceful, he thought how gratidpt*
had followed the way-mark^ faithfully
that surely lead the pilgrim home
through the wildest storms to heaven.
A Fatal Error.
The following amusing fling at the
undoubted interest which many female
church goerf take in their neighbors'
bonnets, appears in an exchange.
An eccentric clergymau in Cornwall
had been much anuoyed by members
of his congregation looking around at
late comers. After enduring it for
some time, he said, on entering the
reading desk one day
"Brethren, I regret that, your attention
is called away from your religious
duties by your very natural desire to
see who comes in behind you. I propose
heuceforth, to save you the trouble.
by npmiug each person who may
enter, and I hope that the service will
then be allowed to proceed without interruption."
He then begm : "Dearly beloved,"
but paused half way to interpolate
"Mr. Stubbing, with his wife and
Mr. Stubbing looked rather surpris- (
ed, but the minister, with perfect gravity,
resumed his exhortation. Presen- ,
tly he again paused : *'Mr. Curtis and
The abashed congregation kept their
eyes studiously bent on their books. ,
The service proceeded in the most or- ,
derly manner, the parson interrupting '
himself every now and then, to name j
some new comer. At last he said,
still with the same perfect gravi- ,
"Mrs. Symons, in a new bonnet."
In r moment he felt his mistake, but (
it was too late. Every feminine
head in the congregation had turned ,
around. Exchange. ,
Judge Thomas M. C'noley, the great (
juiistand Chairman of the Inter State
Commerce Commission, sat reading in
his library on the night of Jan 10,
when his Negro coachman, armed

that lie was insane, but calmly asked
him what was the matter. The Negro
replied that he hml decided to kill
the whole family, as they talked too
much and left him no time to think. :
The judge told him that he agreed ]
with him, and would attend to it, and ,
.so influenced him that he laid down :
the gun and departed. The judge
then telephoned the neighbors to get a
deDUty sheriff who arrested the coach- 1
man. This i8 equal to the Duke of,
Wellington's famous encounter. A
man of gaunt appearance forced his
way into the room where the duke
was writing. "Who are you?" said
the duke, "and what do you want?"
"I am Apillyon, and am sent to kill
you." "What!" said the Duke,
pointingto a pile of letters, "with all
inose leueis uuausnncu. \<uiuv
around to-morrow morning and I will

Mr. Spurgeou was troubled by
one who said : "I am sent by CJod to
do whatever you wish." " "Well,"
said Mr. Spurgeon, "I was wishing
that you would go away now and

On the corner of one of the business
streets of the city, the other morning,
n shoeblack had just finished polishing
the shoes of a well-dressed and gentleappearing
man. The latter was unfortunate
in having a deformity which
compelled him to wear a shoe 011 oneof

enough. I don't waut to make no|

Tlie Sunshine of Smiles.
There is one kind of sunshine
: which it is needful to bring into every j
home, and that is the "sunshine of!
smiles." Next to the sunlight and
warmth of heaven is that of a cheer-j
ful face. No one can long withstand i
its inlluence ; no one can mistake it.
A bright eye, ami an unclouded brow,
a sunny smile, a loving word, all tell
of the peace and joy that dwell with-j
in. One glance at such a face has lift-1
ed the mists and shadows from many
a heavy heart and scattered the fogs'
ifrom many a burdened spirit. A'
bright, warm, cheerful face inside the i
! borne will drive away gloom and ren'der
it impossible for it to exist. The
(germs of disease, which may lurk at
| times in the most elegant furnished
room if kept dark, will vanish away
before the bright and cherry sunlight.

In the Drawing Room.
It has eome to be more and more i
maxim of good manners, not to men
tion good morals, that scandal is neve]
to be miked iu the drawing-room. Sc
thoroughly is this recognized, that if a
woman is heard in good society talktng
of unpleasant, personalities she is
at once set down as an accident of the
place, and not as one either to the
manner born or who has been long
enough with people of good breeding
to acquire their repose and taste.
Very likely many of these high-bred
people iu quistion, who are to the
manner born, hear gossip and scandal,
and perhaps lend to them a too willing
ear; but it is in privacy, in the depths
of boudoir or chamber, vice Davintr its
well-known tribute there to virtue in
the hypocrisy that whispers it in the
dark, as it were, and will not listen to
it more publicly. And it is to be confessed
that of the two evils the indiscriminate
is the greater, for the hypocrisy
injures one's self, but the opposite
course injures one's self and many
The forbidding of the enjoyment of
scandal in public is, at auy rate, an
acknowledgment of its vulgarity, if
not of its wickedness. It proclaims,
too, the fact that society thinks well of
itself and its intentions, and has a
standard of some loftiness, up to which
it endeavors to live, and that it recognizes
an interest in the possible ill-doings
of fallen mortals as something intrinsically
low and coarse, and calculated
to hurt its own structure, an interest
in such facts any way as indicative
of an order of taste not to be desired,
and its possessor a person not to
be associated with. It may be simply
as a sybaritic precaution, ease aud
pleasure beingso much surer when no
uncomfortable suggestion thrusts in
an ugly head, that unpleasant topics
of an unwholesome uature are tabooed
in ihe conversation of the finest
drawing-rooms. But whether this is
so or not. it is plain that good society
would like to be optimistic; it would
believe in no evil aud would speak no
evil; it has found that the essence of
the golden rule : and as the voice of
scandal violates all its notions, it has
laid u})on such utterances witbin its
borders the penalty of ostracismsHarper's
Government of Children.
Seated on the street, a gentleman
came up, looking into one of these enticing
shops, where confections were
displayed in their accustomed way.
Said he, "Let's go in," as he was leading
a little two year old boy, while two
nice little girls were following, all his
own children, and be proceeded to'buy
some apples which he desired for them
and which he thought the most wholesome.
The little boy, however, seeing
that there was no candy in the purchase,
urged his pa to buy him some.
On being told that candy was not so
Ejood for him as he thought, the boy
commenced crying, "I want some
candy." As his pa started home, the

such punishment as was necessary
for correction, and the little fellow
went home in as good order as a little
boy could under the circumstances.
Now, instead of turning in the first
place, and saying, as many do, "SonDie,

be ashamed," and such nice soothing
expressions, which are well enough in
place, and buying the candy and Spoilling

Now, it is not necessary to comment.
There is too much compromising and
yielding to the children of this age.
Too many are left to themselves, to
have their own way and bring their
parents to the same. Herein is the
chief reason why young America is so
wild and wayward as it now appears.

Plants in Living Rooms.?It is well '4
to keep two or three pots of plants in
living rooms as a test of the quality
of the air. If the plants flourish the
air is good. If they are sickly and
the leaves drop, the air is likelj to be
too dry or to be impure. A baby will
thrive in a room where houseplants

and dry at once in the oven, taking
care to avoid scorchfhg; keep in a cool, 3

almost as good when the snow flies
as when fresh from the vine.

breeds are now rivals, and are so nearly
alike that a novice cannot distinguish

has ear-lobes of cream color, while
the ear-lobes of the Minorca should be

The Art of Conversation.?The art
of conversation is to some women a , ;
gift. Like the poet, they are born
with their glorious powers. But many
women who converse intelligently and
pleasantly have become masters of the
art by patient care and study. Even
persons or ordinary ability win nua
upon making the effort that where it
is not a gift, no other deficiency can be
so well supplimeuted by art. For the
untutored there are three old rules
which may not prove amiss. Talk to
men on the subject which belongs to
their peculiar calling; talk about those
things which Interest yourself, assuming
also that they interest your listener,
and make it a point to inform yourself
upon a variety of topics; neyer
be guilty of introducing in a mixed
company a subject upon which all
may not be able to converse. There is a
wonderful faculty in drawing people
out, in making the stranger and the
timid feel at ease, in putting questions
so skillfully and adroitly as to compel
them to answer as though they were
conferring a favor on you, not you

kindle enthusiasm, but the short and
safest way from the heart to ;the heart
is, and always will be, the human
voice. It is the fashion, hi some quarters,
to assert that the preacher's day
lias passed, that the book, the magazine
and the newspaper have superseded
the pulpit. But when the printed
page supersedes the human voice, the

by type metal."
