Crowding, forcing Tiny rills To the dripping window-sills. Laughing rain-drops, light anti swift. Through the air they fall and silt; Dancing, tripping, Bounding, skipping Thro’ the street, With their thousand merry feet. Every blade of grass around Is a ladder to the ground; Clinging, striding, Slipping, sliding. On they come With their busy zip and hum. In the woods, by twig and spray, To the roots they ttnd their way; Bushing, creeping, Doubling, leaping, Down they go To the waiting life below. Oh, the brisk aud merry rain, Bringing gladness in its train! Falling, glancing. Tinkling, dancing. All around— To its cheery sound! —Fleta Forrester, in St. Xicholas for April MAl’ll PENNYFEATHER'S AMBITION It was an exkilerating spectacle that the people of Chepachet b. hJd one Janu ary afternoon; the picture of a grown mau pulling and tugging a small boy aloug Main street. The man was Mr. John Denike; the boy Terry McGuire, Of the ludicrousness of the scene Mr, Denike was not unconscious. His face was red, aud wore au expression of min gled vindictiveness and shame. To add to his discomfiture, a youug lady, coining in an opposite direction checked her steps as she observed his plight, and then stopped short in his way. • Why, Terry!’ she exclaimed in a tone of reproach, ‘what is the matter?’ Denike had stopped but still held the boy who was crying with all his might aud main, The lady looked up inquiringly from Terry to the gentleman. ‘This boy has been trying to pick my pocket,’ he said, ‘and I am going to make an example of him.’ Then he added, ‘are you particularly interested in him?’ ‘He is one of my Sunday School schol ars,’ she added quietly. Joliu Denike shrugged his shoul ders, aud the girl saw and resented the motion. ‘You mean he doesn’t do credit to my teachings,’ she said hotly; ‘1 don’t sup pose he does. 1 have him just one hour iu the week. You expect that I should offset that against the one hundred and sixty-seven, when he is under other in fluences.’ John felt uncomfortable. This em phatic young person was certainly not afraid to speak her mind. He looked down at the boy. ‘Will you ever steal anything again?’ he asked. The child could hardly speak through his tears. -‘No, I won’t,’ he cried, ‘if you’ll le’me g°.’ John loosed his hold and the boy did not wait for permission. Iu a breath he was around the corner and out of sight. The young lady bowed gravely. ‘Thank you very much,’ she said. John stepped aside, raised his hat, and in a moment she was gone. He smiifcd to himself as he went on his way. Indeed he was rather relieved. It had been au episode, and the girl was certainly bright and pretty. He pul his hand in his pocket and drew it out again with an air of satisfaction. The handkerchief was there. It occur red to him that he might also confirm the safety of his pocket-book. He felt iu the opposite pocket—felt in vain. The pocket-book was gone. He stopped short in the street. lam afraid his thoughts were not strictly evangelical. ‘The little beast!’he exclaimed with angry empha sis. ‘There was at least thirty dollars in it—aud Nellie’s picture besides!’ and then reviling his folly in letting the boy go, and wondering if it would be of auy use to sock the police, he turned slowly toward his home. Miss Pennyfeather, as she went on her way, was scarcely less disgusted than Denike himself, without knowing as yet the depth of Terry’s turpitude. She could not deny that his conduct was the saddest kind of commentary on her teaching. Fancy her added annoyance, when, on going to Sunday School the next day, she detected Terry McGuire exhibit ing to the other boys a pocket-book which she kue w could not be his, and which, under compulsion, he tearfully confessed to have stolen from the gentleman the day before. Miss Pennyfeather appro priated the pocket-book. There were papers in it, a photograph of a wonder fully pretty girl, but not a cent of money. ‘Where is the money, Terry?’ she asked imperatively. The boy blubbered. He knew Miss Pennyfeather too well to attempt any denial. ‘I took it out,’ he cried. ‘How much was it?’ ‘Do’no,’ sullenly. ‘Yes you do, Terry,’ emphatically. There was a minute's silence. ‘Come, Terry, you might as well tell me.’ Another pause. ‘Terry McGuire!’ The boy fairly jumped. ‘There was five dollars,’ he stammer ed. ‘Any more?’ ‘There was teu dollars in another place.’ ‘How much more,Terry!’ The boy looked at Mi<s Pennyfeather and learned from her expression the use lessness of deceit. ‘There was a place inside,’ he growled, in a barely audible tone, ‘as had seventeen dollars and a half in it.’ Miss Pennyfeather went over the items in her mind. ‘That makes thirty-two dollars and a half,’ she said. ‘Now, Terry McGuire, give that money to me.’ And Terry, with another side look at his determined teacher, extracted it from his pocket and did as he was told. The sum was correct. Miss Pennyfeather restored it to the pocket-book, and looked Terry severely iu the eye. ‘For next Sunday’s lesson/ she said, ‘you will loam the eighth commandment.’ ‘Know it already,’ growled Terry, ‘yer taught it to us last Sunday.’ So she had. And Miss Pennyfeather felt all t ie more discouraged. For two days John Denike carried re sentment in his heart. He went so far indeed as to hold the girl altogether re sponsible for his misfortune. ‘lf she had taught the boy not to steal/ this was his argument, ‘1 shouldn't have lost Nel lie’s picture. So, on Monday afternoon when ho met her again at almost the same spot, he looked across the street and would have passed on, but that sho put herself again directly in his way. ‘Excuse mo/ sho began, her face all aglow with a senso of her disagreeable position, ‘but I came this way on purpose to meet you.’ John bowed. Frank, he thought. Perhaps the girl interpreted his reflec tion, for the color deepened on her face, as she continued: ‘I was very much grieved yesterday, to find that you Had lost your pocket book. lam glad to be able to restore it to you.’ And with these words she placed the article in his hand. ‘Will you please see if the contents are right?’ she added. He opened it mechanically, glanced at tho picture, and seemed to draw a satis fied breath. ‘I dare say it’s all right,’ he said. ‘Will you please count the money?’ Here was certainly a very positive OSKALOOSA, IOWA. THURSDAY, APRIL 25, 1878. MERRY RAIN. young lady. John did as ho was request ed. ‘is it right?’ she said. ‘Oh yes,’he said, ‘quite right;’ and then, after a second’s pause—‘quite right. I’m sure I’m much obliged to you. It didn’t make so much difference about the money, but should have hated to lose the picture.’ What did Miss penny feather care about the picture? ‘Oh, certainly,’ she said in an iudifferent way, and moved a little apart, as though on the point of leaving him. ‘Are you walking up Main street?’ he asked. Miss Pennyfeather bowed. ‘And may I accompany you!’ ‘lf you want to.’ ‘Perhaps 1 ought to introduce myself. My name is Denike—John Denike. Miss Pennyfeather bowed again. She had heard of Mr. Denike, and knew him to be a member of the State Legislature, but of course, she did not say so. Proba bly Mr. Deoike was now on bis way from the State House at tho head of Main street. ‘1 aui Miss Pennyfeather,’ she remarked in a quiet way. John Denike was now entirely reconcil ed. ‘You will pardon me,’ he said, after a moment, while they walked along together, Tor my implied reflection in my manner of Saturday.' Of course 1 will/ she said calmly. ‘lt was the most natural thing in the world. There isn’t a man in Chepachet who wouldn’t have expressed the same thought, and if the boy, Mr. Denike, grows up to be hung, some one will write his obituary aud say, in early life he went to Sunday school and enjoyed the religious instructions of Miss Maud Pen nyfeather. If Miss Pennyfeather had done her duty by her scholar, would Terry McGuire now be in a felon’s grave?’ The girls’cheeks were flushed aud her voice had a severe tone. ‘Excuse me, Miss Pennyfeather/ said Denike, gravely, ‘I think you overrate your own responsibility.’ She shook her head and looked him earnestly in the face. ‘But somebody is responsible, Mr. Denike; if not I, who is it? There are hundreds of such children in Chepa chet. They don’t go to school. I’m a public school teacher, and there are not half a dozen of that sort in the building. They won’t come, the principal doesn’t want them if they would. In Sunday school my class is the only one of tho kind, and that wouldn't be there if I hadn’t gone out and picked it up my self. The Superintendent doesn’t like ragged, barefooted boys. He draws the the lines just beyond shoes and stockings. But these boys have souls, Mr. Denike, and they’ll certainly go to ruin unless they are taught, not only for an hour on Sundays, but six days iu the week. If the responsibility is not mine does it rest with the church, or on the Soheol Board, or on the Legislature, Mr. Denike? Af ter all, arn’t you somewhat responsible yourself?’ By this time she had stopped iu front of a house, and was resting her hand on the railing of the stoop. ‘This is your home?’ he said inquiring ly, without having answered her last question. ‘Yes/ she replied, ‘I live here with my mother.’ ‘And may I not call to see you some me?’ Miss Pennyfeather hesitated—he was certainly a very recent acquaintance, but he promised to bo a pleasant one. To be sure he was interested in another girl, but that need make no difference, except as it might define more clearly their own relations. Miss Pennyfeather began to feel quite a friendly interest in the pretty face which Mr. Denike carried in his pocket. So she only said with a half smile, in almost the same words she had used before: ‘Why, yes, if you waut to.’ Denike bowed. ‘Let me answer your question/ he said, ‘before I go. Of course I share the re sponsibility with every one else who legis lates for the people. But the problem is a difficult one. Maybe you have some proposition,’ as he noted her more eager expression. The girl gave a little low laugh, perhaps half ashamed of her excite ment. ‘Yes, I have, Mr. Denike/ she said, ‘indeed, it’s my hobby. Whenever I get hold of people who have influence, I bore them with it until their lives become a burden. My notion is to start here in Chepachet an industrial school, under the school board, where vagrant children can be brought in and taught some useful trade. Its my highest ambition, Mr. Denike, to have charge of a school like that.’ Her eye kindled and her face glowed with the words. John Denike, as he looked at her, forgot for a moment the face in his pooket-book, and thought he had never seen a muoh prettier picture. ‘lndeed, Miss Pennyfeather/ he said, as though protesting against her sugges tions that he was bored, ‘l’m very much interested. And I’d like to talk the matter over with you, Perhaps I can do something in the way of legislation. May I come soon and continue the conversa tion?’ Miss Pennyfeather nodded ‘yes/ and bade him good-by. Then the door open ed and shut, and Denike was left alone. But the thought of Miss Pennyfeather’a bright expression and the echo of her fresh ringing voice lingered with him all the way home. Three months after’ that, the School Board of Chepachet found itself in a great quandary. It was seriously pro posed—indeed it had become a law —that in Chepachet, education should become compulsory. More than this, for the va grant classes and for children of poor parents, an industrial school was to be provided. The question that concerned the board was not so much who had en gineered the innovation, as whom they should appoint as principal. ‘Properly/ said old Mr. Gallup, who was the senior member of the board and very slow of speech, ‘the place belongs to Miss Williams.’ ‘But, Miss Fairfield is very high ly recommended/ put iu Deacon Or wig. ‘Sho is very young/ remarked Mr. Bushnell, who was himself verging on eighty. ‘Well after all/ declared elder Knox, ‘it amounts to about this. Denike has more interest in this than anybody else. He wants Miss Pennyfeather, aud she ought to be appointed.’ And that settled it. It all her life, Maud Pennyfeather had never passed a happier time than those three months. Never, indeed, had months passed so quickly. In her relations with Mr. Denike the industrial sohool had, from the very first, been a topic of ab sorbing interest. The legislation affect ing it was drawn in Miss Pennyfeathcr's neat little parlor, and all the details were arranged from evening to evening be tween the two conspirators. Having a secret ef this profound and important character, their friendship became peouj liarly intimate and informal. Had it not been for the picture in Mr. Denike’B pocket-book, Maud might have imagined there was some purpose in his attention, but of oourse the fact of the picture left no reason to infer anything of the kind. And strange to say, while she fancied she was glad of this, she more than once found herself entertaining a feeling of positive resentment against the pretty original, and a vindictive de sire to abstract the picture and tear it up. It is only fair though to say that Maud, when she recognized these improper sen timents, would blush with shame and vex ation, and crowd them down in her heart. It used to annoy the girl; indeed, she could hardly aooount foi it, that wh :n she first knew Mr. Denike she was unem barrassed in his presence, but that now when she went down to meet him it would be with a flush upon her cheek and a tremor in her voice. Try as she might, she could not gain the oomposure of their earlier acquaintance. She hoped it es caped his attention. Perhaps it did. That she was being urged for the position of principal of the new enterprise, she was quite unaware. The evening of the committee’s decision, Denike found her in the par lor. ‘You remember you told me once,’ he said, when both were seated, ‘that it was your highest ambition to have charge of such a school as ours.’ Maud nodded and looked at him, with a question in the look, ‘The opportunity has fallen to me/ he went on, gravely, of gratifying your arnbi tion.’ The color went all away at once from her face. She did not say a word. ‘The school board, Miss Ptnuyfeather, have concluded to offer you the appoint ment as principal of the new school. This letter/ and he handed her the en velope, ‘contaius the official announce ment’ The girl took it mechanically, holding it unopened in her hand. ‘I have great pleasure iu congratulating you/ he continued. ‘To attain one’s am bition, Miss Pennyfeather, ought to be an occasion for congratulation—ought it not?’ She looked up at his question—then dropped her eyes nerviously. ‘Thank you/ she said. It was all she could say. This, then was the end of it all. To be sure, it was the end Maud had wished. Three months ago she had no dearer de sire. Had anything taken its place? Was Maud deceived about herself after all, and did she have au ambition still dearer than that? And so Maud woke up—to find the thing that had seemed best her now within her reach, but stale and unprofita ble; the thing for which she hadn’t cared out of her reach, but of things in the world the most to be deshed. And yet she could not complain. Mr. Denike had only taken her at her word, and interested himself in a friendly way, to help her realize her aspirations. Now he would go off and marry the girl in the picture, whom, by this time, Maud absolutely hated; and she would be left to teach an industrial school to the end of her days. But she would never let Mr. Denike know how it pained her—never. So she forced back tho tears, and studied, aud said in a low, quiet tone: ‘Thank you very much, Mr. Denike; you’ve been very kind to me. His own voice seemed to tremble a little as he spoke. ‘But I’m going to offer you an alterna tive/ he said. Maud looked up. Sho was quite indif ferent now as to what he might say. ‘I want to know,’ he continued, ‘if that is still your highest ambition —or if, as people sometimes do you have changed it?’ Maui gazed at him with open eyes, quite uncertain as to what he meant. Was he going to offer her some other posi tion. It was all one to her, which she took. ‘I may be asking you to give up a good deal/ he went on, but without waiting for her reply; ‘indeed, it strikes me as rath er impertinent on my part; knowing how strongly you've set your heart on this thing, but I must take my chance. I want to ask you, Miss Maud, before you conclude to settle down in life as a teach er, if you wont consider the idea of be coming my wife.’ Mr. Denike did not get any further than that. If he intended to, ho was summarily cut short. For Maud, mak ing a vain effort to control herself, at length gave way, and leaning back against the sofa, cried as though her heart would break. Happily Mrs. Pennyfeather was out and there was no risk of interrup tion. John waited until the tears were checked, very well persuaded as to their meaning, and hardly knowing what to say. ‘I didn’t mean to grieve you’—he be gan. But she put up her hand depreoatiug ly. ‘I know —I know,’ she said in a broken voice. ‘Of course it was impertinent in me,' he went on, now savage with him self. ‘I ought to have known your char acter better. You are not the kind of a girl to change.’ She covered her face with her hands. * ‘Oh, lam!’ she cried. ‘lam! lou haven’t any idea what my character is. There isn’t a more vacillating girl in the world. And I’ve lost every bit of inter est in the school.’ He grasped her hands and drew them away from the crimson tear-stained face. ‘Have you transferred it to me?’ he de manded.’ But Maud did not speak, and ho was oontent to take her silenoe for an answer. After a while, when she had gained her composure in a tolerable degree, a thought came to her, that sent the blood all out of her cheeks. How could she have for gotten it? She drew away from him and looked up into his face with a frightened glance. ‘But the picture —’ she stammered. ‘What picture— ’ in a perplexed tone. ‘Why, the picture in your pocket book.’ John Denike leaned back and laughed. ‘You poor child!’ said he; ‘have you been making a bugbear out of that? Whyit s only my sister Nellie. She s a mission or’s wife and lives in the Fejee Islands. I was anxious about it, because it would be hard to get another one.' And so that cloud drifted away. And if it had not been for Teddy McGuire 1 believe Maud would have been supremely happy. Somehow or other the boy learned the news and took it upon him self to reproach his teacher. ‘I interduced yer to ’im,’ he complained, ‘and now ye’ve went baok on me.’ Whether she had or not, Maud could not satisfactorily settle with herself. In the contentment of her new experience this was almost the only disquieting ele ment ‘You must have a dreadfully poor opin ion of me,’ she said plaintively to Mr. Denike. ‘Why,’ ho asked with unaffected sur prise. ‘Beoause I’ve let my ambition be so easily upset.’ John smiled indulgently. ‘Not upset, dear,’he said, ‘only divert ed. And to this view of the oase Maud not unwillingly consented. The new blue book, just issued at Washington, gives the total number of persons employed in the federal service at 85,880. This is about one in 450 ot the total population, or one to every ninety voters. All About a Brick. A well-known citizen living not many blocks from Union Squaro re lates an incident somewhat in this wise: One bright morning in the month of November, some years ago, I was preparing to go down town, when the servant informed me that a man was waiting at the front door to see me. ‘Tell him I’ll be down in a mo ment,’ said I. On going to the door a man of tall stature and robust up pearanoe, calling me by name, re quested assistance, saying that he had a large family, a wife in delicate health, and no means to procure food for them. ‘You appear to be strong and healthy, why don’t you work?’ asked ‘Simply, sir, for the reason that I cannot procure work.’ Not having any work to give him I thought I would test the sincerity of his intentions. ‘lf I give you work, what pay do you want?’ ‘Anything, sir, you choose to give me, so long as I can obtain means for my suffering family.' ‘Very well, sir/ said I, ‘I will give you twenty-five cents an hour if you will carry a brick on your arm around the block for five hours without stop you, sir; I will do it.’ After hunting awhile I found a brick, placed it on the man’s arm, started him on his walk, and then went down town to my business. Not having the least faith in the man’s promise, I thought but little more of it, yet as I knew I should be back within the five hours I deter mined to see if he performed his work. My business kept me away rather later than I expected, so I had to forego my usual walk home, and took a Fourth avenue car to be back with in the five hours. As I approached the corner of the street where I reside 1 found a great crowd of persons gathered—two fire engines, a hose cart and a hook and ladder truck. Upon inquiring where the tire was I was informed that it was a false alarm, and that what brought the people together and oc casioned tho agitation was the spec tacle of a tall man carrying a brick on his arm around the block for nearly five hours. The neighbors were look ing at him from the windows and doors as he passed along; some thought he was crazy, but when spo ken to his answer was: ‘Don't stop me; it's all right’ As he interfered with no one, he was allowed to walk on undisturbed. ‘Where is now?’ I asked. ‘There, you can see him at the oth er end of the block, walking with his head down,’ was the answer. He was just about turning the cor ner, and I waited till he had perform ed the circuit, then, taking him quiet ly by tho arm, 1 marched him to my house, followed by a lot of boys. In tho meantime, the firomen, engines and hose cart rattled off. The man was thoroughly tired out when I took him into my hail and seated him on a chair, while my servant went for a little wine and something to eat. I paid him forthwith a dollar and a aalf. He informed mo that, while making one of his turns, a lady came out of a house and inquired why he was carrying that brick, and on his giving her the reason he received a dollar. The object soon became knowD, for, as he passed the houses, small Bums were given him by differ ent persons, and he was well satisfied with his day’s work. ‘But,’ said ho, ‘what shall I do to morrow?’ ‘Why,’ I replied, ‘go early in the morning to tho houses from which you received tho money, and ask for work, and no doubt you will find some one who will put you in the way of getting it; then report tome.' The following afternoon ho informed me that ho had been sent to a german, who kept a pork establishment in Third avenue, and who wanted a clerk to keep his books. He was to get five dollars a week if his work proved satisfactory, and his dutios bogan on the following day. Before leaving me he asked for the brick which had brought him such good luck, and I gave it to him. Within tho year I ascertained that the man had been transferred to a larger establishment of the same kind, with a salary of SI,OOO. Three or four years after this, I was riding in a street car, when a well dressed man accosted me, with a smile, and asked mo if I knew him. Seeing me hesitate, he said: ‘Don't you recollect tho man who carried the brick?' He then informed me that he was doing a prosperous .business on his own account, had laid up money, and expected soon to build himself a house up-town. ‘What became of the brick?’ I in quired. ‘That brick, sir, has always occu pied a place on our mantlepiece, and we value it as the most precious of our little possessions. It has made our fortune.’—JV. Y. Evening Post. What Statesmen hare thought of Paper Money. GEOROE WASHINGTON ; 1786. “Some other States are, in my opinion, falling into the Very foolish and wicked plan of emitting paper money. 1 cannot however, give up my hopes and expecta tions that we shall ere long adopt a more just and liberal system of policy.” JOHN ADAMS; 1786. “I cannot but lament from my inmost soul that lust for paper money which ap pears in some parts of the United States. There will never he any uniform rule if there is any sense of justioe, nor any clear credit, public or private, nor any settled confidence in public men or measures, un til paper money is done away.” THOMAS JEFFERSON; 1813. “Capital may be produced by industry and accumulated by economy, but jugglers only will propose to create it by legerde main tricks with paper.”"’ madison; 1786. “The value of money consists in the uses it will serve. Specie will serve all the uses of paper; paper will not serve one of the essential uses of specie. JAMES BUCAANAN; 1837. “The evils of a redundant paper circu lation arc now manifest to every eye. It alternately raises and sinks the valu t of every man’s property. It makes a beg gar of the man to morrow who is indulg ing in dreams of wealth to-day. It con verts the business of society into a mere lottery; while those who distribute the prices are wholly irresponsible to the peo ple. When tho oolapse comes, as it must, it oasts laborers out of employment, crushes manufacturers aud merchants, and ruins thousands of honest and indus trious citizens.” TIIADDIUS STEVENS; 1862. “No one would willingly issue paper curreuoy not redeemable on demand and make it a legal tender. It is never de sirable to depart from the ciroulating medium which by the oommon consent of oivilized nations forms the standard of value.” MEDICAL. VEGETINE CHILLS. SHAKES, FEVER AND AGUE.

I read your adver tisement In the “Louisville Courier-Journal.” that Vearetine was a great Blood Purifier and Blood Food. I tried one bottle which was a great benefit.

I have a younger son, fifteen years of age. who is subject to Chili*. whenever he feels one coming on, he comes In, takes a dose of Vegetine and that is the last of the cbUl.
