"FIFTEEN CENTS OFF."
A Detroiter, who dresses well and has a
reasonable share of good looks, had occasion
. last week to make a trip to the country, and
one night he found himself at a farm-house
at which a party was to come off. He was
invited to participate in the festivities, and
after he had consented, the old farmer took
him around the corner of the house and said:
"The young folks are mighty fond of any
game with kissing in it. They'll ^et up
something, and fix it to make you kiss the
handsomest gal in the room."
"Well, I'll kiss her," was the prompt reply.
"Yes, but hold on a little," continued the
old man. "There's my gal, Emma. We

folks around here kinder sniff at .her 'cause
her nose crooks a bit and her hair is a trifle
high-colored. Now, I want you to kiss Em
for the handsomest girl in the room. It'll do
the ole woman good, do Em good, and kinder
set these 'ere sniffers back a little. I don't
ask you to kiss her for nothing, but, if you'll
do it, I'll throw fifteen cents off'n your bill
in the morning ? What d'ye say ?"
The young man said he'd do it, and the
father continued :
"That's the checker. Don't have any
make-believe about it, but kiss her right pop
out, so that we kin all hear the smack!"
The game was played, the Detroiter was
"fixed," and he kissed "Em" like the pop of
a pistol. He felt all the happier for it that
night, seeing how greatly the old woman was
pleased; but next forenoon, ss he jogged
along, he had to run the gauntlet of a score of
farmers' sons waiting in the fence-corners to
lick him because he passed their "gals" by
for "Em." He was struck by thirteen stones,
six clubs, and about a bushel of potatoes, before
he got out of the neighborhood; and
when he came to figure up, he realized that
fifteen cents was no inducement at all.?Free
Sambo's Humor.?Two darkeys were vaunting
their courage. "I isn't 'feard o' nothin', I

The Noah's Ark Baptist Church (colored)
of Louisville, tried one of its members for
profanity the other day. Next to the pastor
he was the most prominent man in the
church. One brother testified that, as he was
gwine on to his work Monday mornin,' he
heered a mouty racket, he did, down toward
Brudder Jimson's. "An I says, says I, fo'
God, whut'sdat? Is de communers riz up

Brother Jimson then rose and calmly
said: "I would like to ax if de Lawd
didn't make red pepper?" The pastor replied
that he did. "1 would like to ax if he
didn't make it to be planted in de ground ?"
The pastor said he did. "I would like to ax if

fluttered up from the congregation. The

Equal to the Em eroency.?General
Hardee, whose manual of infantry tactics
was in use in all the Southern armies, visited
a rural Georgia town one day during the war,
and the commander of a "home guard" company
sought to do himself and the General
honor by parading his command in front of
the inn in which Hardee bad rooms. The
writer upon tactics came out upon the balcony
to review the command, and the militia
officer put his men through their paces. In
one of the manoeuvres the men became confused
and got into a hopeless tangle. Hardee,
in telling tne story, said that he could think
of no possible way in which they might be
extricated, and waited with great curiosity to
see what the militia commander would do.
That rural tactician looked at the confused
mass for a moment with a scowl of perplexity
upon his forehead; then his face cleared, and
he shouted the order:
"Disentangle to the front?march."
Whereupon the men marched forward and
formed a new line without regard to the order
of the old one. Hardee said the command
was not in his own or any other book
on tactics, but that it ought to be incorporated
A Candid Opinion.?An old lawyer, famous
for his wise and candid opinions, was
the other day visited by a young attorney,
"I was admitted to the bar two years ago,
and I think I know something about law, yet
the minute I arise to address a jury, I forget
all my points and can say nothing. Now, I
want to ask you if this doesn't show lack of
confidence, in myself, and how can I overcome
Tfye wise attorney shot his eyes and studied
the case for a moment before answering:
"My young friend, if it is lack of confidence
in yonrself it will some day vanish;
but if it is lack of brains you bad better sell
out your office effects and buy a pick-axe and
"But how am I to determine ?" anxiously
asked the young man.
"I'd buy the pick-axe anyhow and try my
chances!" whispered the aged adviser, as he
moved over to the peg for his overcoat.
Splitting the Difference.?A young
man with the blush of country life on his
cheeks sold out his produce on the market
yesterday, and entered a shoe-store and said
he wanted a pair of shoes for his wife.
"What number ?" asked the clerk.
The young husband scratched his head,
looked very much embarrassed, and finally
"Well, I've been married eight months, but
this shoe business stumps me. I don't hardly
believe she wears 'levens, and I don't think
she kin git into fives. I guess if we split the
difference we'll hit her pretty close."
He was given a pair of eights, and after
squinting along the soles, he observed:
"I guess them'll do. She's awful proud,
and I know she'll squeeze into them for all
# Half of It.?The other day a pretty girl

"How much ?" said the gentleman, a well

"Four dollars," said the lady.
"Four dollars! Good heavens, madam, I
might as well be robbed in the street However,
maybe you'll sell me half of it"
"Why, certainly," said the lady, and with
a clip of the scissors cut the roses in two and
handed him the stems.
"Two dollars, if you please," she said.
He paid without anotner word.
Stir A colored minister in Georgia was brought

f Original .J
By the command of God, the Jsws celebrated
three annual feasts?the Passover,
Pentecost and Tabernacles. In their nature
and design, these feasts were retrospective and
prospective. In other words, they were designed
to commemorate remarkable past occurrences,
and they were also typical of important
future events. The Passover was the
first in point of time of these annual feasts,
and in some respects it was the most important
The time designated for its celebration

called sometimes Abid and sometimes Nisan.
The hour of the day was specified with conI
siderable exactness. "In the fourteenth day
of the first month, at even is the Lord's passover."
Lev. xxiii: 5. A literal rendering ef
the words of the original text require the
passage to be thus translated: "In the fourteenth
day of the first month between the two
eveninga is the passover of Jehovah."
The Jlebrews, as well as many other Oriental
nations, divided the afternoon of the day
into two parts. The first part they called the
first evening and the second part they called
the last evening. The evening began at the
sixth hour, which corresponded with our
twelve o'clock and ended at sunset The first
evening or first part of the evening extended
from the sixth hour to the ninth, or to our
three o'clock in the afternoon. The second
evening or second part of the evening, began
at three o'clock and ended at sunset The
passover was killed between the ninth and
eleventh hours of the day, or between three
o'clock in the afternoon and sunset Thus we
read that when Jesus Christ was crucified the
darkness enveloped the earth from the sixth
to the ninth hour, and sometime between the
ninth and eleventh hour Jesus died. That is,

noon and sunset
The paschal sacrifice was a lamb, either of
the sheep or of the goats. It is probable,
however, that a goat was seldom, if ever, offered,
although admissible. It was prescribed
that this paschal lamb should be a male without
any defect &&d less than one year old.
The object and design of this passover feast
was two-fold. The one was national, the other
universal. More properly, the passover
was a commemorative feast and it was at the
same time a typical ceremony. It was designed
in the first instance to perpetuate the
memory of the deliverance which God effected
in rescuing the Israelites from Egyptian
bondage. "I am the Lord thy God which
brought thee out of the land of Egypt and
out of the house of bondage," was, on the occurrence
of this annual feast, brought vividly
to the recollection of every Israelite. The
other and more important design contemplated
by God in giving to his ancient people
the passover feast was to prefigure a Saviour.
The paschal lamb was typical in that it symbolized
Jesus Christ the Lamb of God which
taketh away the sin of the world.
Four days previous to the departure of the
children of Israel from Egypt, they, by the
command of God, selected a lamb for each
family and kept it up until the afternoon of
the fourteenth day of the month A bid. At
the appointed hour the lamb was slain, and
its blood caught With this blood the two
side posts of the doors of their houses, together
with the upper door post, was sprinkled.
At sunset which was the beginning of the
fifteenth dav. tbev be&ran to eat the paschal
lamb. Their loins were girded, their staves
were in their hands and their shoes were on
their feet They were ready for the exodus.
Together with the roasted lamb, they were
commanded to eat bitter herbs and unleavened
bread. The bitter herbs, no doubt, were
designed to impress upon their minds the
hardness of the bondage to which they had
been subjected, and the staves in their hands
and shoes on their feet indicated that they
I must be in haste to accept the promised freedom.
' -At midnight the Destroying Angel passed
through the land of Egypt and destroyed
the first born of all the Egyptians. From the
first-born of the humblest subject to the firstborn
of the king on the throne, none escaped.
The houses of the Israelites were passed over.
The Lord saw the blood upon the door posts
and passed oven the houses inflicting no in
jury upon the inmates. This was a most won
derful deliverance. Pharoah was convicted.
His soul was filled with consternation. The
haughty monarch sent for Moses and Aaron
hw niorbt. and tremhlinc and terror-stricken.
he told them to take the whole of the Hebrews
and all they possessed and be gone.
As the "children of Israel, under the Old
Testament dispensation, were a type of all
God's people during the present dispensation,
everything connected with the passover feast
was no doubt typical, and all these types found
their anti-type in the incarnation, life, death,
resurrection and ascension of the son of God.
Whatever the paschal lamb was to the pious
Jew, the Lord Jesus Christ is to his people,
and far more.
The first passover feast was.celebrated by
the Israelites in their own private families.
After they were settled in the promised land,
all the males were required to go up to Jerusalem,
and there keep the passover. The
whole nation left their homes and went up.
In the 122nd Psalm we have the embodiment
of the national feeling on the annual
return of the passover. Every pious heart
was triad. The roads leading? to Jerusalem.
from all quarters of the country, were crowded
with happy souls, singing "our feet shall
stand within thy gates, 0 Jerusalem ! For
my brethren and companions' sakes, I will
now say, Peace be within thee."
To this feast, the males were required to go
up to Jerusalem, and the females were permitted.
A number of passages of Scripture
might be quoted, which prove that women
were not excluded from the privileges of the
passover feast. See first Sam. i: 1 and Luke
ii: 41. All Jews by birth, male and female,
were guests . at this annual feast, unless excluded
by legal uncleanness. Strangers who
dwelt in the land were admitted when they
complied with the law. See Exodus xii: 49.
This typified the fullness and freeness of
the salvation in Jesus Christ, whom Paul calls
"our passover." In Christ Jesus there is
neither Jew nor Gentile. His blood cleanseth
from all sin. Whosoever cometh to him shall
in no wise be cast out. The deliverance of
the Jew was temporal, but Christ procures
freedom from sin. God, the father, poured
out the wrath which was justly due to the
sinner upon the son of his love. This is a
far greater passover than that which took
place when the Destroying Angel passed over
the houses of the Israelites.
The ordinary employment of artifice is
the mark of a petty mind ; and it almost always
happens that he who uses it to cover
himself in one place uncovers himself in another.

THE RANGE OF PRICES.
It is interesting to occasionally go over the
records of past years and compare the prices
of various articles with those of the present.
Some industrious person who has recently
given his attention and time to this occupation,
presents to the world a table of the prices
of farm produce for fifty-three years, or from
1825 to 1878, and it affords a very profitable
study. The prices are given as the average
prices in New York City, for the month of
January for each year. Take the item of
corn, for example: We will not attempt to
give the table in full, but present the most
notable fluctuations. In 1825 corn was worth
42 cents per bushel; and from that year to
1836, it fluctuated from the foregoing price to
901 cents, and in 1837 it reached $1.06.
Falling off again in 1838 to 86 cents, and in
1844 touched 43 cents, it began once more its
upward course, and in 1855 was rated at $1.01.
During the eight years following, it rose and
fell from 93 cents in 1856 to 61 cents in 1858,
and, in 1864, when the war was at its height,
if fnn/ik/ul 41 OR in Iflfifi itinmmd tn 81.94.

then fell, in 1866, to 95} cents; in 1867
touched $1.16}, and in 1868 was $1.20; fell
to 90 cents in 1869; in 1870 was $1.12; in
1875 was worth 97 cents, and in 1877 was
quoted at 59 cents.
In 1825 wheat was worth $1.01; in 1828,
$1.15, and in 1838 had touched $1.92}.
There was then a depreciation up to 1843,
when it fell to 88} cents, but it jumped the
following year to $1, and in 1854 was found
stiff at $2.04, while in 1855 it rose to the
very high figure of $2.57 per bushel. From
this time on to 1856 there was a downward
tendency, in 1861, it having fallen to $1.14,
while up to January of the year the war
closed, 1865, it had not gone above $1.85. In
1867, however, it suddenly shot to $3, fell off
in 1868 to $2.45, and was quoted at $1.25 in
1875, and in 1877 was worth $1.47.
Oats, in 1825, were worth 27} cents per
bush'el; in 1827, 56 cents; in 1837, 57 cents;
in 1838, with wheat $1.92}, 42} cents, and in
1840, 33} cents. From that year down to
1865 the price was not marked by any vital
variation, but in the last named year it rose
to $1.03, and in 1866 to $1.20, the maximum
for the 53 years under consideration. In
1867 it fell to 80 cents, rose to 85 in 1868,
and in 1877* had fallen to 55 cents.
Mess pork in 1825 was quoteff at $13.37
per barrel. In 1837 it rose to $23.50, and in
1843 fell off to $8.87}. The following year
it rallied to $10.12}, in 1846 it was worth
$13.56, and in 1865 had reached $35.25.
The price since then has been generally down
ward, sinking to 81h.1z in iooy rallying to
$29.75 in 1870, and touching $17.50 in 1877.
The article of wool has undergone some
radical changes. In 1825 the quotation was
32} cents per pound. In 1827 it fell to 25
cents, in 1830 to 21} cents, and then, beginning
an upward course, went to 80 cents in
1838. It fell off to 38} in 1839 and to 19
cents in 1843, when the following year it once
more enhanced in value, and went steadily on
until 1863, when it was 63} cents. In 1864
' it fell to 28} cents, rose to 56 cents in 1855, to
70 cents in 1866, fell to 48 cents in 1871, and
again went up to 70 cents in 1872, holding
that price for two years. Beginning a decline
it went down steadily until 1877, when it was
worth 48 cents.?Prairie Farmer.
HOW BOCK CANDY IS MADE.
Candy! All candy is nothing but sugar?
only it is done differently, just the same as
all printing is only types, but they set them
up in different ways. Well, let us begin at
the beginning. Let us start with sugar, loaf
or lump sugar, good white sugar of any sort.
How are we to make this sugar into candy,
into the many candies we see, from lozenges,
drops, stick candy, and all kinds, to rock
candy, so unlike alj the rest ? They are all
sugar, but how very different! We must
start somewhere. Let us take a teacup half
full of boiling water and drop a lump of sugar
into it. It dissolves. rut in another
lump, and another; they dissolve. The sugar
disappears, and the water becomes thick.
We are making a syrup. We are getting sugar
in a liquid state. What was hard and
white now has become liquid and transparent, j
a great change truly. Wow keep on adding
sugar as long as the water will dissolve any,
and when no more will be dissolved, put
the cup aside, in a warm place near the
stove. Hang a thread in the liquid, and
look at it every day. In a day or two, or
more, I can't tell you how soon, as that will
depend upon the relative amount of sugar
and water, you will find little bits of clear
sugar sticking to the thread. Let them alone
for several days, still keeping the cup in a
warm place, and you will find the bits of sugar
becoming larger and of more regular
shape. Why, it is rock candy! Exactly so.
This is the way in which rock candy is made.
Just as much sugar as it will dissolve is put
in the water, usually in a tub, and threads
are hung in the syrup, and the whole put in
a warm place. Gradually the sugar leaves
the water and gathers upon the threads. Not
in a shapeless mass, but all in beautiful crystals,
more nicely formed than you could possibly
make them, and as clear and transparent
as glass. This then is the way in which
rock candy is made. Sugar, after it has
been dissolved in water, is allowed to deposit
itself slowly and quietly. The regular forms
it takes are called crystals, and they are always
in the same shape, whether large or
small, and are formed with as much care and
beauty as if they were diamonds or other
.precious stones. You will ask why they
form upon strings. Crystals always form
I upon rough surfaces, sooner than upon smooth
ones. I cannot tell you why any more than
I can tell you why boys and girls like candy.
A Secret Worth Knowing.?A sort of
trade secret among upholsterers, is this recipe
for ridding furniture of moths: A set
of furniture that seemed to be alive with the
larvae, from the month it came "new, and
from which hundreds of these pests had been
picked and brushed, was set in a room by
itself. Three gallons of benzine were purchased
at thirty cents a gallon, retail. Using
a small watering pot, with a fine rose sprinkler,
the whole upholsetry was saturated
through and through with the benzine. Result
: every moth, larvae and egg was killed.
The benzine dried out in a few hours, and
its entire odor disappeared in three or four
days. Not the slightest harm happened to
the varnish, wood,or fabrics, or hair stuffing.
That was months ago, and not a sign of a
moth has since appeared. The carpets were
also sprinkled all around the sides of the
room with equally good effect. For furs,
flannels, indeed all woolen articles containing
moths, benzine is most valuable. Put them
iu a box, sprinkle with benzine, clpse the box
tightly, and in day or two the pests will be
exterminated, and the benzine will evaporate
on opening. In using benzine, great care
should be taken that no fire is near by, as
the stuff* is in fluid or vapor form and is very
A SERMON TO GIRLS-ON COOKING.
Cooking-classes have besn popular among
fashionble young ladies of late years. But
there is no cooking-class which quite equals
in its opportunity for excellent information,
which you may find at home. Presuming
that I am talking to a girl that has just leu
school, I advise you to make use of your leisure
in taking lessons of your mother. There
is an absolutely SDlendid feelincr ofindeDeud
ence io knowing bow to make perfectly light,*
sweet, substantial bread. Then try your
hand at biscuits, muffins, corn bread, toast,
and all the different forms into which breadstuffs
may be blended. Xoast seems a simple
thing enough, but is frequently so poorly
made that it does not deserve the name.
Toast, a necessity of the sick room, is often a
hopeless mystery of women who have the
vaguest idea of how it is evolved from the
raw material. After you have mastered the
bread question, try meats and vegetables.
Any bright girl who can comprehend au
equation, or formulate a syllogism, can overcome
the difficulties which beset her when
learning to cook. Lucent syrups, golden
cake, delicately browned bread, quivering
jellies, melting creams, and the whole set
of material things glorified, because made
for love's sake, and for the good of one's dear
ones, are fit expressionrfor any woman. The
charm of this accomplishment lies in the fact
that it imparts to its owner a gratifying
sense of power; it bestows on her, too, the
power of blessing and resting those she loves
