GRAVE OF BEN BOLT. BY SI ON EY I>YER. "i? By the side of sweet Alice they have laid Ben Bolt, Where often he longed to repose, For there he would kneel with the early spring flowers, And plant o'er his darling the rose. His heart was as true as the star to his gaze, When tossed on the billows alone, For now it is cold and forever at rest, For he calmly lies under the stone. n. How often bis eyes were brimming with tears, To mingle with others in grief; But joy would rekindle the light of his smile, When pouring the balm of relief. At last he has gone to the bright spiiit j land, - M . And, free from all sorrow and pain, For he meets sweet Alice again ! . . * III; We'll gather the flowers from the green shady hook, And mos3 from, the silent old mill, To strew o'er the graves where obscurely repose ; The hearts that death only would chill ; And oft, wheu the soul has grown weary and sad, . We'll come.by twilight alone, Tojnuse o'er the. spot where together Ben Bolt ' And sweet Alice lie under the stone. ." Good Character. ; Lexington Dispatch. Every year a reputation for hon esty, industry and good morale be comes more valuable. Young men ought to note this 'fact well, and pa rents who hope, to see their children happy and prosperous ought to Dote it. The diehonesty that is all the time cropping out among those who are employed in positions of trust and responsibility makes the manag ers of-banks, business houses and other institutions in which large amounts of money are handled ex ceedingly careful whom they em ploy. They want to know all about a man now-a-days before they put him in the way of temptation. In the large cities the ' system of requiring those who are employed in positions of. trust to give bond is rapidily go ing ont" of-practice. The guarantee compa??es**?re " superseding the sys tem. A man. who seeks a position where ;he . will have the. handling of | money must get one of these companies to guarantee that he will be honest. To get such a guarantee a man must live a very correct life. Before he can get it his habits are thoroughly inquired into by competent detectives. If they* nnd'he has, bad habits-habits thaf-reqnire money-he cannot get it at all, and, consequently can't get the employment he desires. All meu who lead apparently correct lives are not honest. Because a man attends church or Sunday school it doesn't follow that he,j will-not steal if the temptation is placed in his way, but it isn't very oflen that a man who leads a thoroughly correct life is guilty of crooked transactions. Now and th?a there is one, but he is nat ru_I- 'fcfrad, aud while pretending to bs honesf, clean handed and clean hearted, ia only playing the part of a hypocrite. A greatrnajority of those who rob their employers are simply weak. " They contract habits that re quire more money than they earn. They-fir?t borrow and then steal to pay their loans. Having btarted on the downward course their progress towards ruin increases until their crime ?8 discovered. Many a disgraced and ruined young man dates lihebegiuning of his downward career from the first cigar or bis first drink. As a boy he thought it manly to smoke and drink. Ne probably took buggy rides when he didn't know where the money was to come from to pay. the expenses. Young men who are in debt for such things are in danger. It is evidence that they are living beyond their means. The boys who pride them selves opon ' being able to ape the vices of their elders - do not as a rule succeed in life. They are practically wrecked before they reach maturity. They fall along the way and are quickly, forgotten. Every defalcation makes bank Presidents and merchants mort careful respecting those they employ. -They don't want to be rob bed, and they know they are in less danger from' men who live soberly, decently and within their incomes than Irom those who drive fast hnrBes frequent gamiDg tables, drinking liqu or and bad irregular lives ia other re spects. In order to become physically and morally strong, it is necessary to begin right. Parents are responsible for the beginning. Some of them however don't realize how much the happiness and welfare of their chil dren depend on them. They don't train them ; they simply permit them to grow op. They discover their mis take when it is too late. After the Lodge's Secrets. Seeking Information in Regard tu lier Blusband's Doings. "Good evening, sir," said a woman whose face looked_like a boiled sai inoD, wifch-a 'pK&afx? nose and a voice that sounded like a faraway echo i'rora?tbi? booectefw, -?s abe addrwsed a young man, who trembled is he viewed.her red hair and item visage.

"Oh, no, I see it is no use, you're all in for each other and sworn to secre cy, and you'd say the broken earling ? found in his pocket belonged to you, wouldn't you?

The young man meekly replied, as he tried to movo away, that he was in a hurry ; that perhaps Bro. Buchup would give her all tho necessary in formation ; that he could not really understand-but she caught him up before he could finish the sentence with " No, you don't understand, on, no I You wouldn't tell me for a pan of doughnuts what kind of laws you make that says a woman shan't be a daughter of Becky, merely because she's got a wart on her nose.

Judge Quarks tells this stoi'y of a blasph?mons crow, lt was hatched (the crow, not the story), in Stewart county, near the Montgomery line. The presiding genius of the neighbor hood, who was the crow's master Bill S.-kept a small grocery and had taught the bird only tw.? words, "Damn you." The crow, when do mesticated, can talk plain if the lip of its tongue be split. A mile from the grocery was the settlement meeting house, the scene of many happy "rousementa" during the judge's beyond. On one occasion, when the revival had reached its highest point, into the church (lew Bill's wicked crow. Among the neigh bors there assembled was a very old lady who used crutches, and who was much absorbed in the meeting. Hop ping up on the pulpit, and cocking a quizzical eye at the preacher, the crow, in a hoarse, croaking voice, ut tered the ominous words : " Damn you I" The effect was electrical. With a terrified glance at the intruder, the minister made a bound for the win dow, carrying frame, glasB and all, and broke for home, the congregation after him pell mell. In the general scramble the old lady's crutches were carried out of her reach, and she was left alone unable to follow the crowd. The crow, which was only after something to eat, Hew down beside the poor frightened woman, (she mis took it for the devil, bodily,) and hop ping towaid her, repeated the words: " D-n you ! D-n you ?" The old lady held defiantly to her religion for a few moments, but it was not long (poor, weak human nature 1) till her robes began to fit loosely, and the concluded it better to propitiate Satan (temporarily) than to conic out second best and be carried away by him. "D-nyou! D-n you I" croaked the crow, inching along in pursuit, as the old lady slided toward the further end of the beDch. "D-nyou!" repeated the imp. "And d-n you some tool " at last shouted the frightened woman ; "d-n you some too, sir ! I hail nothing more to do with getting up thia here 'rouse ment meetin' tban you did, nota d-n bit, sir I" "Theresa deal of human nature even in the fair sex when tbey aie scared half to deatb," a Ids the judge. -Nashville American.

Redmond, the South I Carolina moonshiner, cornered, after ' for eight years eluding the govern? . ment officials, was asked to surrender, ' he exclaimed : 1 "Never, to men who fire at my 1 back !" ? Before he was taken, five bullets I had gone clear through him, but i strange to relate, he got well in the i hands of a rude backwoods nurse." I By the way, if Garfield had been J in the hands of a backwoods nurBe, 1 he might have lived. A heap of vol- 1 unteer testimony against the infalli- < bity of the physicians has been accu- i mulating of late, and people are en- I couraged to do their own doctoring 1 more and more. It is cheaper and 1 quite as certain. Before Detective Curtin of Buffalo ! caught Tom Ballard he "covered" : him with his revolver. Tom saw the point and tumbled ! Joe Goss wae "covered" a few weeks ago and he tumbled, and so did Dan Mace. Death "fetched em" with that dreaded weapon-kidney disease. | But they should have been lively and drawn first. They could easily have disarmed the monster had they cov ered him with that dead shot-War ner's safe cure, which, drawn prompt ly, p.lways takes the prey. It is doubt less true that sporting men dread this enemy more than any mishap of their profession, arid presumably this ex plains why they as a rule are BO par tial to that celebrated "dead shot." Redmond was right. No man should surrender when attacked in the back. He should "draw," face about and proceed to the defence, for such attacks, sc common among all classes, will fetch a man every time unlesb "covered" by that wonderful ly successful M dead shot."-Sports mans News. Tbe Largest in the World. The largest fruit farm in the world, of any 'one kind of fruit, has been established in the southern part of Florida, comprising 2,500 acres, with over 200,000 cocoanut trees. In or der to establish this farm, Mr. Ezra A. Osborn a wealthy farmer of Mid dletown, Monmouth County, N. J.? bought over sixty miles of the ocean front laud from Lake North on the north to Capo Florida on the south. lu order to commence his enterprise he had to charter special vessels to carry the cocoanuts from South Ameri ca and then land them through the surf in surf boats, purchased from the Government, from along the New Jersey coast. So far the undertaking has cost over $100,000. The 200,000 cocoanut trees planted, ol f'tx one half have attained two year's growth, and the other half one year's growth, will net, if the statistics of the pro duct of cocoanut trees are borne out, in the course of from six to ten years and then on for one hundred years, three to five dollars per year for each tree. As the cocoanut will only thrive Bouth of the frost line nea|?.he nnasr.. Mr. Osborn has succeeded in monopo lizing about all the 'and there is in the United Stales available for cocoa ?ut growing. Fred Grant has been talking and to some point. According to a report in the World he said in reply to a question asked, if it was a matter of satisfaction that the Confederate Gen erals took part: "Certainly. Nothing would have so gratified my father as to have known that all sectional feeling was forever buried at his grave. Ile had a very great respect for the Southern Generals. Some of them were his most intimate friends. It was at our request that they were ii.vited to at tend the funeral, and I am very glad they were present. The demonstra tions throughout the South are also very gratifying, for they exhibit a spirit which my father had always hoped for." Eczema. For the benefit of suffering hu manity, I deem it only my duty to give this unsolicited testimony in favor of Swift's Specific. My wife has been aillicted with Eczema from in fancy. We tried every known remedy, but to no avail. She was also aillicted with a periodical nervous headache, sometimes followed with intermittent fever, so that her life became a bur den to her. Finally I determined to try Swiit's Specific. She commenced seven weeks ago. After taking the first bottle the disease seemed to in crease; the burning, itching and in flammation became unbearable. She however, persevered in the use of this medicine. After taking the second bottle the inflammation began to sub side. After the third bottle the in flammation disappeared, and sore spots dried up and turned white and scaly, and filially she brushed them oil' in aa impalpable white powder resembling pure salt. She is now taking the sixth bottle ; every ap pearauoe ol' the disease is gone, and her flesh is soft and white as a chiid's. Her headaches have disappeared and she enjoys the only good health ehe has known iu 40 yearn. No wonder she deems every bottle of S. S. S. as worth a thousand times its weight in gold. Any further information concerning her case will'be cheerfully given by herself at her residence 135 Mullett Street, or by me. JOHN F. B.'IAD LEY, 44 Griswold St. Detroit, Mich., May 16, 1885.
