Quite Possible.?A physician had,
as presiding genius in his culinary department,
a Negro woman of a social
disposition, but of a somewhat irascible
temper. Oue night a youthful
admirer, who was accustomed to make
frequent evening calls upon the ebony
Maria in her kitchen, prolonged his
visit to a tiresome length. After Maria
had worn out every topic of conversation
of which she was mistress,
she essayed to give him a gentle hint
as to her mental and physical weariness
by a prodigious yawn.

Sauce Fit for Both.?A geutle- 1
man has a little boy who, on account
of his mother being an invalid, has
been under the especial care of his i
nurse. During the summer, however, 1
his mother went away for the season, |
taking the little boy and his grand- i
mother. Being unused to receiving
orders from his mother, he at one time
rebelled and she was obliged, to punish
him. To this he demurred, affirming
that only the nurse had a right to pun- i
ish him; and going to his grandmother,
he complained that his mother had
struck him. ]
"That was right," said she, "if you |
were naughty; she is your mother, (
and has a right to whip you if you
don't behave well."
The little fellow, sobbing, asked?
"Have mothers a ri. :t to strike
their children ?"
"Certainly," she replied.
"Are you her mother ?" he asked.
"To be sure I am."
"Well, then, hit her."
Mistaken Identity.?One of the
regular correspondents tells the Washington
Post a delightful anecdote of
the reportorial days of one of the wellknown
editors of metropolitan journalism.
Before the female society reporter
had usurped the social domain as completely
as at present, he was assigned
one night to report a social event at
one of the swell houses in New York. 1
He stationed himself at the head of a
stairway to take the names of the ladies 1
as they passed him to go to the dressincr-room
to take off their wraps and
C - _
prepare for their appearance on the
lower floor. He had been standing
there for some time, taking notes, 1
when a gay young damsel, heavily i
wrapped in furs, lightly tripped up
the stairway, and suddenly addressed
"Ah, beg pardon sir, are you the
footman ?" I
"No, madam," quickly retorted the i
reporter; "are you the chambermaid ?"
Clerical Wit.?There dwelt among
the hills of Cooke county, Tenn., some
years since, a man named Watts, a i
"hardshell" preacher, who was also a
doctor. He was thus enabled to min- ,
ister to bodily ailments while offering
the consolatious of religion to the sin
sick soul. In order to renew his own
spiritual strength he sometimes found
it necessary to imbibe a little spirituous
liquor, and on one occasion, having
drawn much consolation and vigor
from a bottle which he carried in his
pocket, he ascended the pulpit and
held forth in his customary hardshell
style. He grew very vehement, and
in makiug a sweeping gesture unfortunately
broke his bottle, scattering the
fluid all around. Stopping short iu
the midst of an eloquent passage, he
exclaimed, "There, brethren, goes
some poor woman's mediciue!" and
then resumed the thread, etc.

COMMON SENSE IN THE SICK ROOM.
I have waited much iu the sick
room from my boyhood days, but I
have found a convenience I have never
seen used before. It is so handy, so
easy to get, and such a comfort that
it ought to be generally known. It is
a bottle. With this water, and all
fluids, can be given to a patient without
the trouble and pain of raising the
head one inch. Try it and you will
never raise the head of a sick person
to drink again. I wonder if people
never will learn to be quiet and
gentle in a sick room. Why is it that
about 9 out of every 10 persons who
? < ? ?-? unrl 1 a\t a h a n rl
UUUiC in, yu lu a jiaiitui. niiu mj ..
on his head and feel his pulse? This
tends to keep the miud on something
that ought to be forgotten. I never
feel a pulse nor test a fever unless requested
to do so. It is enough for the
doctor or the nurse to do that. Some
people out of kindness and to express
sympathy, are guilty of a sort of refined
cruelty. They say to the sick,
"O! my you look so badly." That is
the very thing of all others that no
man ought to say to a sick person.
No matter how true it is, keep it to
yourself while in the sick room. Why
talk of the other sick, thd dying and
the dead, in .the sick room ? It does
the sick no good?often does much
harm. Such visitors are to be dreaded.
All conversation in the sick room
should be carried on in a low, gentle
tone of voice and distinct enough for
the patient to hear every syllable of
it. Whispering excites a patient, and
puts the nervous system on a great
strain. It causes one to think something
is wrong. Discussions of any
kiud, any conversation that taxes the
mind, are out of place in a room where
the sick can hear it.
The visits of some pastors are very
helpful to the sick, and the visits of
others are hurtful?they do more harm
than good. What a gift it is, aud an
art worth acquiring, to make helpful
visits to those who languish on beds of
sickness. A serious air and a bright
face, gentle, cheerful speech, becomes
the minister and man of God, A long
face aud a dolorous tone should never
be carried near the bedside of a sick
person. A few verses, and not long
lessons, should be read from the Word
of God. A preacher ought to know
how to find them in an instant. They
should be read in a distinct, gentle, assuring,
or comforting tone. The comments
if any should be brief, suggestive,
spiritual. The prayer should be
short, fervent?not boisterous?pleading,
and for those thiugs just then
most needed. I have kuowu a few
preachers who prayed in the sick
room, and in public, as if God were a
mile away, or asleep, or hard of hearing.
Earnestness is best expressed in
the lower tones, this is especially true
of earnestness in prayer. Do not yell
or scream petitions in the ear of God
in the hearing of the sick. If a
preacher has good sense, judgment
and tact, a sensible doctor never objects
to his visiting patients. His visits
do good. They strengthen the
mind, encourage the heart, and quiet
the nerves. The sick ^re glad to see
such preachers come.?"Gilderoy," in
AST" "He who waits to do a great
deal of good at once will never do
anything." Life is made up of little
things. It is but once in an age that
occasion is offered for a great deed.
TVnp frrpntnpss consists in beine areat
iu little things. How are railroads
built? By one shovelful of dirt after
another; one shovelful at a time.
Thus, drops make the ocean. Hence,
we should be williug to do a little good
at a time, and never "wait to do a
great deal of good at once." If we
would do much good in the world we
must be willing to do good iu little
things, little acts one after another;
speaking a word here and there, and
setting a good example at all times;
we must do the first good thing we
can, and theu the next, and so keep
on doing. This is the way to accomplish
anything. Thus only shall we do
all the good in our power.

MONEY THAT IS A LEGAL TENDER. i
Although people talk glibly and '
wisely about the national currency, '
the vast majority of them have but a
superficial knowledge of the functions <
of the various issues. On account of 1
the present general discussiou on the <
subject, a few facts are briefly given 1
that may afford a clearer understand- I
ing of the present couditiou of the na- i
tional finances. 1
The official definition of the term 1
"legal tender" is "money of a charac- '
ter which by law a debtor may require i
his creditor to receive in payment, in <
tne aosence or any agreement m mc
contract or obligation itself." In gov- i
emment transactions the gold coins of i
the United States are a legal tender in 1
all payment, at their nominal value, I
when not below the standard weight i
and limit of tolerance provided by law i
for the single piece, and when reduced 1
in weight below such standard and j
tolerance are a legal tender at valua- i
tion in proportion to their actual
Standard silver dollars are a legal <
tender at their nominal value for all <
debts and dues, public and private, ex- ]
cept where otherwise expressly stipu- i
lated in the contract. The silver j
coins of the United Slates of smaller j
denominations thau $1 are a legal teu- |
der in all sums not exceeding $10 in (
full payment for all dues, public and ]
3Iinor coius, whether of copper, i
bronze or copper-nickel, are a legal <
tender at their nominal value for any j
amount not exceeding 25 cents in any
one payment. I
United States notes, otherwise |
known as ''legal tender notes" and
"greenbacks," are a legal tender in i
payment of all debts public or private, .
within the United States, except duties j
on imports and interest on the public
Treasury notes, issued in payment
of purchases of silver bullion under the 1
Sherman act of 1S90, are a legal tender
in payment of" all debts, public or private,
except where otherwise expressly
stipulated in the contract, and are
receivable for customs, taxes and all
Columbian half dollars are a legal
tender to the same extent as subsidiary
silver coin that is, 810 in any one
payment. Columbian quarters are
also a legal tender to the same extent
as subsidiary silver coin.
Gold certificates are not a legal tender.
They are, however, receivable
for customs, taxes and all public dues.
Silver certificates have precisely the
same standing as gold certificates.
Vfitinnnl hunk notes are not a lecal
tender. They are, however, receivable
at par in all parts of the United
States in payment of taxes, excises,
public lauds and all other dues to the
Uuited States, except duties on imports
; and also for all salaries and
other debts and demands owing by the
United States to individuals, corpora- i
tions and associations within the United !
Slates, except interest on the public
debt and in redemption of the national
Trade dollars are not a legal tender.
By the act of February 12, 1873, they |
were a legal tcuder at their nominal ,
value for any amount not exceeding '
$5 in any one payment, but under date !
of July 22, 1876, it was enacted that
they should not thereafter be a legal j
By the act of March 3,1863, fraction- '
al currency was receivable for postage
and revenue stamps, and also in payment
of any dues to the United States,
less than $5, except duties on imports;
but they are no longer a legal tender to
any extent whatever.
The treasury department has also
decided that foreign gold and silver
coins are not a legal teuderin payment !
of debts. The question has been raised ]
and disputed as to whether what was 1
called the "Continental currency," is- '
sued during the war of the rebellion ]
by the old government, was or was not <
a legal tender. The facts appear to be 1
that while the Continental congress
did not by any ordinance attempt to
give it that character, they asked the
States to do so, and all seem to have
complied, except Rhode Island. The
Continental congress only enacted
that the man who refused to take the
money should be an enemy of his country.
This currency, as now classified
at the treasury department, is not a ;
By law, treasury notes are redeemable
in coin. The kind of coin employed
is optional with the secretary
of the treasury. Secretary Carlisle
has directed their redemption in gold
whenever that coin is demanded. In
case the holder has no preference, he
will receive silver in exchange, but
such cases are extremely rare. United
States notes are also redeemable in

certificates. The recent issues of bonds
were for the purpose of replenishing
the dwindling gold reserve, in order to
enable the government to maintaiu
:he parity of the two metallic standirds
of value. Consequently, no other
currency was receivable in payment of
the bonds. Bouds are redeemable in
coin, either gold or silver, at the option
of the government.?Evening
Watching the Weevil.?The department
of agriculture, says a Washington
dispatch, has sent an additional
expert South to investigate the habits
jf the new cotton weevil, which has
been imported into Texas from Mexico.
1 T-? t
CAOIDOlO^Ibl Hi. A. OUIIWU16 uao guuc
to San Antonio and other points in
Texas to make a study of the habits of
this weevil. It is a semi-tropical insect,
and although it may thrive in
the lower corner of Texas, which is
semi-tropical in character, it is believsd
that not many generations can survive
the climate of the States north of
Texas where cotton isgrowii. All the
United States cotton belt, with the exception
of this small region of Texas,
forming the point around Brownsville,
en the Rio Grande, belongs to what is
known as the lower austral region and
the habits of insects imported into that
region are bound to change from the
habits of the same insect which are
found in the semi-tropical region.
These differences caused by the change
in climate are to be the special study
cf the etomologist who hasgoue South.
One thing so far discovered is that the
usect cannot fly so far in the climate
north of the Mexican boundary, and
left to its own exertions, it might not
oe a daugerous pest. The chief cause
for alarm, however, arises from the
fact that the insect is being and has
neen carried north in unginned cotton,
lud after reaching the cotton belt, is
ible to survive the climate.

THAT "He becometh poor that
dealeth with a slack hand; but
the hand of the diligent maketh rich." *
Now, mind, the foregoing quotation is
from the inspired word and is absolutely
true, and we would impress upon
the reader the fact that the author
or writer of the Proverbs did not say
"might become poor," or that "there
is a probability of the careless business
man coming to want," but that he is
aure to come to want. ^ ow we win give
you an application of the above. Say,
for instance, you want to buy a buggy
or ladies' phaeton, and a dealer or ?
manufacturer quotes you a price exactly
the same as lie sold at when cotton
was worth 10 cents a pound, and our
agent at Yorkville, Mr. Sam M. Grist,
quotes you a price which is about $15
less, for our work, and our work is
equal to the other in every particular
and is backed by an ironclad guarantee.
You buy the high price job
simply because you imagine it is
better, and the only thing that makes <*
you think so is because the price is
higher. Now, aren't you doing business
with a slack hand if you pay
more for a buggy or phaeton than it is
worth when you can buy it for what it
is worth ? It appears to us that way.
We don't claim to sell our work for
less than it is worth, but we claim that
oiuers are cnarging 100 mucn, especially
when the low price of cotton
and other money producing commodities
