UNCLE JONAS. "Uncle Jonas, what makes your head so white? And your shoulders stoop so low ? Just look at your hands, now they shiver and shake, And your steps are feeble aud slow." Ah! young Mas'r Tom, I was active once? As nimble as you an' Jim; Nobody then ever called me slow, I was sound in wind and limb. Ole mas'r called me his very best hand, I was strong an' light of heart; I had been born an' raised on his laud? Sbo', I never thought we could part! "Manj* a happy year we passed, But when we were growing old Our troubles began, for massa got broke, An' his people all had to be sold. The traders they my children took? Ole massa meant no harm? \f v \i'ifA she nmnrnprl a tvhile an' died. And I was sold with the farm." "But Uncle Jonas, the black folks are free ! The Yankees have set them free! No one can buy or sell you now, No more than Jim or me." "Yes, chile, doy say the good times have come, And all de black folks are free, And each man who can work can win a home For himself au' his family. But I am an olean' feeble grown"? And the old man heaved a sigh, "Wife an' children I have none, An' ole Jonas is free but to die. Southern Workman. tumorous Department. THE PEDDLER'S BARGAIN. One day a tin peddler, with an assortment of knick-knacks, arrived at a village and called at one of the houses to sell his wares. After disposing of a few articles to the lady of the house, who seemed to live in the midst of children, she declared her inability to buy more for want of money. "But marm, hain't you any rags?" "None for to sell, sir." "Well," said he, "you seem to have plenty of children. Will you sell me one for tinware?" "What will you give, sir ? Ten dollars for one of them ?" "Oh, yes, marm, the best." "Well, sir, it is a bargain." Cbo bonded nno nf the Urchins to the Tied UUV 1 dler, who surprised that the offer was accepted, yet convinced that the mother would not part with her boy, placed him in the car, and supplied the woman with tins until ten dollars were made up. The mau feeling certain that the mother would raise the money rather than part with her child, seated himself by the side of the boy, who was much pleased with the idea of having a ride. The peddler kept his eyes on the house, expecting to see the woman hasten to redeem the little one, and rode off at a slow pace. After proceeding some distance, he began to repent of his bargain, and turned back. The woman had just finished ornamenting her dresser with the tin, when the peddler returned. "Well, I think the boy is too small; I guess you had better take him back again and let me have the ware." "No, sir, the bargain was fair and you shall stick to it. You may start off as soon as you please." Surprised at this, the peddler exclaimed : "Why, raarm, how can you think of parting with your boy, so young, to an entire stranger?" "Oh, sir, we would like to sell all of our town paupers for ten dollars a head." The boy was dropped at the door, the whip cracked, the tin rattled, and the peddler measured the ground rapidly, and he never forgot his pauper speculation. A Post-Hole Card.?An old gentleman who was recently made the recipient of his first postal-card, placed his specs carefully astride his nasal organ, and eyed the pasteboard closely. "What is this thing, any way ?" he finally demanded. "Why, a postal-card, of course," was the answer. "A post-hole card? What is such a thing good for, I'd like to know?" He was informed that a cheap rate of postage had come into vogue, and writing-paper was at a discount. "Blast it all!" flamed the old gentleman, in a sudden rage, while his nose described a semicircle with a sharp angle; "they've got to 'dulterating tea with weeds, terbacker with licorice and copper, whiskey with pepper and turpentine, an' now they've got ter *T/*1 r\ r\dO f II CQITO tllP "nflTlPr!

A Disappointed Merchant.?A Newcastle merchant sat in his counting-house bemoaning the hard times, and the discontinuance of those large colliery orders which, in days gone by, were wont to flow in upon him in grateful profusion, when his gloomy cogitations were interrupted by the entrance of a dingy customer, evidently from the collieries. The stranger briskly demanded if the merchant had any plane trees in stock at present. "Plane trees, sir?" replied the merchant. "As good a stock as any on the Tyne, sir. Do you want them in the log or plank? We have an abundance of both." "I'm not particular," answered the pitman; "it's not much I want. It's only for a fiddle bridge I want to make." "Sing it Once More, Elvira !"?A Chicago man's young wife entertained him with selections from Wagner, after which he expressed himself as resigned to go to bed, where he slept very soundly. Toward midnight some cats assembled in the back yard and yelled frightfully. The sleeper did not get up and throw boot-jacks at them, but tnmo'l nn nno olhmu nnfl whisnprpH in his "u",w u" _ uuv_ v*"v" -r dreams, "Sing it once more, Elvira; sing it once more!" She sings it no more, neither anything else, but thinks of beating her piano into kindling wood and turning her musicbook into curl papers. The Witnesses.?One of our young lawyers was recently appointed to defend a pauper criminal, who was, of course, in the county jail. An interview was had. "What do you expect to prove by your witnesses ?" inquired the young discipb of Blackstone?" "How can I tell what I expect to prove by my friends until you tell me what they have got to swear to ? I guess you haven't had I many clients before me," was the reply of the ! victim of the minions of the law, "who had been there before."?San Antonio Herald. A Model Husband.?A plain country- j man entered a bank and made a deposit of; 82,000. One of the officers asked him, "what he intended to do with so much money?" "O," he replied, "I am doing this for my wife, and am determined to keep on working and adding to the amount until, when I die, she will be a real marriageable widow." Now if that man does not fill the bill of a disinter-! ested husband, then let any one produce a better example. The Old Nick.?A story is told of a shrewish Scotchwoman who tried to wean her , husband from the public-house by employing her brother to act the part of a ghost and frighten John on his way home. "Who are J you?" said the guidraan, as the apparition rose before him from behind a bush. "I am auld Nick," was the reply. "Come awa', man," said John, nothing daunted; "gie's a shake of your hand; I am married tae a sis-! ter o' yours." Thoughtful.?A doctor in Ireland was disturbed in the night by a rapping on the! door, and opening it, found a laboring man j who had come for him. "Have you been long! here ?" said the doctor. "Indade I have," answered Pat. "But why didn't you ring the night-bell ?" "Och, because I was afraid of disturbing your honor." 4f arm and fireside. STARVING ORCHARDS. A ton of drv unleached ashes per acre will furnish nearly the same ingredients advised by the Scientific Farmer for the fertilization of orchards, which is two hundred to two hundred and fifty pounds of bone dust and three hundred to four hundred pounds of sulphate of potash per acre. This gives some seventy or eighty pounds of potash, fifty or sixty pounds of lime (from the bone), and ten to twenty pounds of nitrogen, and some magnesia in the potash and fertilizer, all of which are called for to nourish orchards on insufficient soil, as the flesh of most fruits contain much potash as well as lime, in combination with the fruit acids ; and the seeds phosphoric acid. Whether the inrgedients required are applied in the formula given or in the uni L-J _.! i.a : _,i?j macueu ttsues suggesieu, il is reuumuieuucu hj sow broadcast and lightly harrow in, leaving it to the rain to more thoroughly incorporate with the earth. Such treatment has proved successful in orchards showing signs of decay, both in this country and in Europe. Coal ashes and salt are employed with great benefit to some soils, especially in orchards beariug sour fruits. Orchards, the soil of which, from close pasturing or other causes, is nearly destitute of humus, will gradually deteriorate and finally die, unless restored to that state of fertility which is necessary for the thrifty growth of the tree and its existence in a healthy and vigorous state. Such orchards are greatly benefitted by a top-dress ing of leaf-mold, rotten chip manure, muck from a creek, broken bones, animal hair of all kinds, and similar material generally at hand on a farm, which can be applied without other expense than the time and labor expended. When manures are used they should be well decomposed. Fresh warm manure excites young trees into a very rapid growth, but the wood is watery and feeble. A dry soil of moderate richness is the one that produces and sustains hardy trees. Their wood n __j .1 1 1 1 1 is arm, ana me uuus are piump uuu eiuse together and the parts are well proportioned.? Round the World. Look Behind and Before.?Many of the hints for the last month are equally applicable for this. Now is the time to make plans for the campaign of 1879. Take an inventory of the farm stock and everything on hand. If this has never been done before, the proprietor will doubtless be surprised to find how much he owns. Straighten up the books, and the little debts, and collect those due from neighbors. Small accounts should not be run long. Trust not to memory. Arrange the books for the business of the year. Study over the plans considerably in detail, and do not wait till the ground is ready to plow before deciding what to do. Look over the past and study the good hints and the failures?whether all was done to the best idvantage; whether there was too little or too much help. This should lead to better plans for the future. Nothing can bring larger returns for the time, than a few weeks spent in accordance with the above suggestions. An Experiment Worth Trying.?An intelligent farmer, who is a very close observer and a very successful corn farmer, says that he always smokes his seed corn. After selecting the seed, he hangs it in his smoke house and smokes it well. Sometimes the corn is ouite black. The result of this treat ment is that the corn is not liable to rot before it sprouts, and insects do not disturb it. Where he uses smoked corn there is no neces sity of replanting. He has tested this experiment for a number of years, and has always been successful. Last year he ran out of his smoked corn while planting one held, and used a small quantity of corn that was not smoked. On the portion where the unsmoked corn was, he was compelled to replant the greater part. Neuralgia and Rheumatism.?A correspondent of the Germantown Telegraph, says: A simple relief for neuralgia is to boil a small handful of lobelia in half a pint of water till the strength is out of the herb, then strain it off and add a teaspoouful of fine salt. Wring cloths out of the liquid as hot as possible, and spread over the part affected. It acts like a charm. Change the cloths as soon as cold till the pain is all gone ; then cover the place with a soft dry covering till perspiration is over, to prevent taking cold. Rheumatism can often be relieved by application to the painful parts, of cloths wet in a weak solution of sal-soda water. If there is inflammation in the joints, the cure is very quick. The wash should be lukewarm. Soap Cure for Hog Cholera.?A year ago I bought six hogs from a drove of twenty that were dying with cholera, and found, on driving them home, that they were affected ; they vomited often. I put them with twentyfive of my own raising, and boiled some corn in weak lye from ashes, used some soft soap in their slop from the kitchen, and I never lost one, while the last of that drove I left died. I have one now which took it a month ago so bad it would eat nothing; it seemed blind. I cured it by using one dose of com raon soap, made thin with water, pouring it down with a tin cup, by holding the hog on its back?Correspondent of the New York Tribune. Hoarseness.?A writer in the Medical Record cites a number of cases in which borax has proved a most effectual remedy in certain forms of colds. He states that in sudden hoarseness, or loss of voice in public speakers or singers from colds, relief for an hour or so, as if by magic, may be often obtained by slowly dissolving, partially swallowing, a lump of borax the size of a garden pea, or about three or four grains, held in the mouth ten minutes before speaking or singing. This produces a profuse secretion of saliva, or "watering" of the mouth and throat?probably restoring the voice or tone to the dried vocal cords, just as "wetting" brings back the missing notes to a flute when it is too dry. Durable Ink for Marking Linen.? Dissolve a couple of drachms of lunar caustic and half an ounce of gum Arabic iu a gill of rain water. Dip whatever is to be marked in strong pearl-ash water. When perfectly dry, iron it very smooth ; the pearl-ash water turns it a dark color, but washing will efface it. After marking the linen, put it near a fire or in the sun to dry. Red ink for marking linen is made by mixing and reducing to a fine powder half an ounce of vermilion, a drachm of the salt of steel, and linseed oil to render it of the consistency of black durable ink. Relief for Burning Feet.?To relieve burning feet, first discard a tight boot; then take one pint of bran and one ounce of bicarbonate of soda, put in a pail, and add one gallon of hot water; when cool enough soak your feet for fifteen minutes. The relief is 1 instantaneous. This must be done every night for a week, or perhaps more. The burning sensation is produced by the pores of the skin being closed, so that the feet do not perspire. To boil eggs properly, place tnem in a dish having a close cover; pour over boiling water ; cover and set away from the fire for ten to fifteen minutes. Eggs cooked in this way are more delicate and digestible than when allowed to boil in the old way. The he&t of the water cooks them slowly to a jellylike consistency, leaving the yelk harder than I the white. A Valuable Paste.?Dissolve a piece of alum the size of a walnut in a pint of boiling j water; to this add a couple of tablespoonfuls of flour, made smooth in a little cold water, and a few drops of oil of cloves, letting the | whole come to a boil. This paste will keep for months. ?. ? For Dyspepsia.?Burn alum until the moisture in it is evaporated, then take as much as you can put on a dime, about a half an hour before eating. Three or four days probably will answer. Take it until cured, i gjMiijj (at the ?f ahhath. CONDUCTED BY REV. ROBERT LATHAN. lOrlglnal ] "LOVESTTHOU ME V* Our Saviour once asked Simon Peter this question. The circumstances were very pecu liar. Jesus had been put to death and risen again from the grave. Peter had visited the sepulchre and found that the Lord was not there. Sometime afterward, Peter and a number of other individuals went to the see. of Tiberia, to fish. They toiled all night, but caught no fish. The morning came and found them worn out and hungry. Jesus appeared standing on the shore. "Children, have ye any meat?" he inquired. "No," was the re ??aho /llronforl Kv fKf> linrPPOff Uiy. 1 I1CJ nut uuui/wuu, uj v**v nized Saviour, to cast their net into the 6ea on the right side of their fishing bark. This they did, and found that the net was so full of fishes that they were unable to draw it to | the shore. John was enabled to discover who it was that stood upon the shore, and said to I Peter, "It is the Lord." Peter seems to have been wonderfully confused. He girt his fisher's coat unto him and leaped into the sea. Soon the company of fishers landed aud found a fire of coals, and fish broiling, and bread at hand. Jesus invited the wet and hungry party to "come aud dine." This they did, probably, in silence. The repast finished, Jesus turned to Peter and asked him if he loved him. No doubt our Saviour had a particular object to accomplish in propounding this question to Peter, rather thau to any one of the j others. Peter was a very peculiarly constituted man. Nature had done much for him. I He was generous to a fault, brave and imjpulsive; still, he was constantly liable to blunder. He usually spoke without thinking, j and was, withal, inclined to be a braggart. His bravery was not of the highest order. I At one time he thought, and so declared, that he could die with his Saviour and for him ; but when the hour of conflict came and he ? a. T? J bitW IUI3 iicwa anu ivuniaiis wiuuiucu aganion that Saviour, his heart failed him and his courage was turned into cowardice. Poor Peter, without grace, was not to be depended upon. Our Saviour, by asking Peter if he loved hira, designed to impress upon him the fact that iu the past he had acted very inconsistently, and that for all coming time he should be on his guard. Peter replied to the Lord that he did love him. The question was asked again. Peter replied with more emphasis, "Lord, thou knowest I love thee." Our Saviour asked the same question again. Peter was mortified that he was asked the same question three times, and replied, "thou knowest I love thee, for thou knowest all things." It is very probable that Peter, notwithstanding his previous conduct, was accustomed to talk much to the other disciples about his love for the Saviour. Hence, to he asked iu the presence of the discip es, three times, if he loved the Saviour, was very mortifying. Peter did love the Saviour, but like some other Christians, he had a strange way of showing it. Rather, his previous conduct had been of such a kind and character that it was impossible for any one but an omniscient being to decide whether he loved the Saviour or not. Peter was a representative character. The Church has in it to-day, a number of persons who are, to all intents and purposes, just like Peter was when our Saviour asked him, three times, if he loved him. No doubt they love the Saviour, but they have succeeded, in an admirable way, in concealiug that love, or in causing others to doubt respecting it. Like Peter, on certain occasions they are loud in declaring their attachment for Jesus Christ, and again they are as loud in denying that they know him. At Church, or during the time of a revival, they are full of zeal and energy; but like Ephraim, when the contest with the devil, the world and the flesh comes, they faintly turn back. It was well for Peter that the Lord knew all things, for had it not been so, he surely must have doubted whether Peter loved him or not. There are others just like Peter in this particular. They sometimes profess to be great friends of the Saviour; but soon they are seen in a grog-shop, or at a card-table, or an me nlace else, even more disreputable. r ?- - # There they carouse and practically declare they know not the Saviour. They toil all night and catch nothing. When the Saviour is pleased to ask them, "Do you love me ?" they are prompt to say "Yes, of course ; you know we love you." Thy are mortified if the question is repeated; and again reply, "we love you." But how is the Saviour to know it? Who can tell whose friend the man is who fights one day under one flag, and another day under another flag? Peter was a good man, but there was a period in his history when he had no grace; another period when he had very little grace. He had very little grace when the Saviour asked him seriously, "Lovest thou me ?" Peter grew in grace, and it was well for his eternal welfare that he did. So it is with a great multitude of professed Christians. Once they were destitute of grace, and they have very little grace now. Great changes have to take place in them, and they have much to do before they will be fit for the Church triumphant. To us all, Jesus says: "Lovest thou me ?" What reply can we make ? Will we, like impetuous Peter, blurt out a hasty "Yes?" What evidence have we that this would be true? Can any one but He whose eye discerns all things, at once tell whether we love Jesus more than we do many other things? Do we spend our days in spiritual idleness ? Nay, do we join with the ungodly in the folly and sin of the world, and still say we love the Saviour? If such be the case, may we not each of us ask ourself the question, "Do I love Jesus Christ?" JJfiy Children are quick to perceive the standard of integrity held by those around them, and to catch the prevailing tone of moral feeling. When they hear injustice condemned in large things and palliated in small ones ; when their own childish depredations are treated with levity, or passed over with indifference ; when deceitful practices are tolerated, and simply troublesome habits punished, it is not strange that they learn to measure the guilt of dishonesty only by the material loss or annoyance entailed. To indulge anger is to admit Satan as a guest; but to indulge in malice is to close thetloor upon him as an inmate; in the one he finds a transient lodging, in the other a permanent home. That which is good to be done can not be done too soon; and, if it is neglected to be done early, it will frequently happen that it will not be done at all.

The stomach is affected with loss of appetite and sickness; the bowels in general are costive, sometimes alternathe with lax; the head is troubled with pan, accompanied with a dull, heavy sensation in the back part. There is generally a considerable loss of memory, accompanied with a painful sensation of having left undone something which ought to have been done. A slight, dry cough is sometimes an attendant. The patient complains of weariness and debility; he is easily startled, his feet are cold or burning, and he complains of a prickly sensation of the skin; his spirits are low; and although he is satisfied that exercise would be beneficial to him, yet he can scarcely summon up fortitude enough to try it. In fact, he distrusts every remedy. Several of the above symptoms attend the disease, but cases have occurred where few of them existed, yet examination of the body, after death, has shown the liver to have been extensively deranged. AGUE AND FEVER. Dr. C. McLane's Liver Pills, in cases of Ague and Fever, when taken with Quinine, are productive of the most happy results.
