TROUBLESOME NEIGHBORS.
Ota, could then In this world be found
Some little spot of happy ground
Where t Uace pleuure mlnht go round
Without tua Tillage tattling;
How doubly blett that spot would be.
Where nil might dwell In liberty.
Fret from the bitter misery
Of got st pi' endless prattling.
' If such spot were really known.
Fair Peace m ght olnlm it at her own,
And in it the might fix her throne
Forever and forever;
There like a queen to reign and live,
While every one would toon forgive
The little .lights they might receive, -
And bo oOonded nvor.
'T.s mlichlef-niaUerj that romove "
Far from our taouris the wnrrat'i of love,
And loaJ us all to disapprove '
What givos another t.lcmure.
They seem totake one's part, but when
They've heard our cures unkindly then
They s wn retail tliein ull airaln,
Mixed with tholr poisonous measure.
And then they've such a cunning way
Of telling ill-meant taleti they say:
" Don' t mention what I' ve sit d, I pray ;
I would not tell another!"
Straight to your noigubor's houte they go,
Narrating every th:nr they know.
And break the eaoeo( high and low,
i Wile, husband, fr end and brother.
Oh, that the mlBch.er-moltlngerew
Were all reduced to one or two.
And they were painted rod or blue,
Thatercryono mlg.it know thorn I
Then would cur villagers lorgot
To rnge i.nd quar el, (urae and trot,
Or fall Into an wury pet
With things so miich below them.
For 'tis asa I, dejradl ( part.
To make another's bsum smart.
And plant ft dagger in some heart
We ought to love and clior'.sh.
Tben lot us evermore be found
In harmony wlih all around,
While r eiidsh p, Joy and peace abound,
And angry feellngt perish.

Brother, Uim. Francl Onl ownu.
On5n pAcino Hotcl, Ciil.-ago, April 12,
18MJ, Dear J-'ntnli: It is agci siuco I beard
from you, but I supiwso every ttaiDg goes on
as usual, and that you can find nothing to
write about. When I wrote mat I told you
about my cngafroiK-ut to Miss Josie Fair
field, only daughter and heiress ot Jere
miah Fairflcld; and I think I gave you
fair description of your future sister-in-law.
Old Jeremiah is behaving very handsomely,
and is going to plank down a fair share of
his dollars in bard i-ash. I am In excellent
condition, and, to use a favorite expression
of my fiancee', "am JtiM, having lovely
time."
Every body here mukes aa atvful fust
over me, and will Insist on calling me "Lord
Galloway." Title hero are held In the
highest veooratlon ; but the majority of the
people I have met don't teem to know the
difference between an honorable and a mar
ones. My future father-in-law took me
ever his plg-atlcklng establishment yester
day, and each tlmo be enme to a group of
butchers at work be would atop them for an
instant ami any: "This la Lord Galloway,
my future aoo-in-law."
There la one curious mistake that every
one baa made here, and that la that they
hare all taken It for granted that I am the
elder ton and heir to the title, although I
have never done or aald any thing to cause
Ihem to believe so. As old Fairfield hat al
ready told all his friends that I ahull bo Vis
count Decatur, and consequently his daugh
ter ft Viscountess, I hardly dare now to un
iooelve him In case ho should want to break
off the match. My fair floucee also has told
all bar girl friends that on tlio death of my
father she will be Viaoountoes Decatur, so
Ibat 1 really see nothing for it but to leave
litem In Ignorance of the true state of the
ease until after the wedding, which baa
Men fixed for this day week. Consequently
wben yon receive this my proverbial Ul
Mok will have deserted ma and 1 shall be
the nanny possessor of a millionaire bride.
I am sincerely attached to Miss Fairfield;
nut, as I told yon In my last letter, my
father -In'.ew-eleot. a they say over here.
Is the worst specimen of a low-bred Tanks
that I have ever set eye on. Tour affec

Saw York, May 12, 1888.-Dtar "route
The affair wont off splendidly and without
a hitoh. AU the Chicago paper teemea
with account of tb brilliant ceremony and
the magnificent present mad to tb bride.
Unfortunately, they all accepted it a ft fact
ihat I am the future Lord Decatur, and I
hare not yet bad the courage to undeceive
my bride. As w sail for England
next week I (hall not aay any thing about
ih mistake, but will leave It until she meets
you and finds out that yon are the heir and
not myself. One paper In Chicago asserted
ibat I should soon be ft Vuke, as my lamer,
the Duke of Decatur, was in a very precari
ous stat of health. That was a good stretch
of Imagination for ft Chicago Journalist.
Good-bye, old fellow. Touraffecta. brother,

Oncct when Hiram wanted to droen the
honfe pasture he went to tho cyclopeedy to
find out about it, but all be disklvered wuir.
"Drain-Bee Tile." This was In 16T9 ond
the cyclopeedy bad only got down to G.
The cow wui sick with lung fever one
spell and Leander laid her dyln' to that
cussed cyclopeedy, cause when be went to
readin' 'bout cows It told him to "So
Zoology." . ' .'.-. - j
But what's tho use ur harrowin' op one's
feelin's talkin' 'nd thtnkln' about those
things) Innder got' so after awhile
that tho cyclopeedy Juln't worry him at all;
he grew to look at it es one uv the crosses
tbatbumnii critters has to boar without
complainin' through this vale uv tears.
The only thing thut bothered him wux the
fear thut mebbo ho wouldn't live to eoe the
last volyumo to tell tlio truth, this kind uv
got to be his hobby und 1're hoern him talk
'bout it many a time sottin' round the
stove at the tarvern 'ml squirtln' tobacco
Juice at the sawdust box. His wife,
Hattte, passed nwuy with the yaller jander
the winter W come, uud all that soemed to
reconcile Leunder to surviviu' her wux the
prospect uv seeiu' tho hist volyume uv that
cyclopeedy. Lemuel Higgins, the book
agent, had gone to his everlastin'. pun
ishment, but his son, Hiram, bad suc
ceeded to his father's business 'nd continued
to visit his folks his old man bad roped In.
By tills time lender's children had growed
up; all on 'omwui umrr'd, and there wux
numeris grandchildren to amuse the ol'
gentleman. But Leander wuzu't to be sat
isfied with tho common things uv alrth; be
didn't seem totuke no ploasure In bis grand
children like most men do; his mind wux
allers sot on somotuin' else for hours 'nd
hours, yes, all day long, he'd set out on the
front stoop looklu' wistfully up the rood for
that book agent to come along with a cyclo
peedy. He didn't want to die till he'd got
all the cyclopeedlcs his contract called for1;
be wanted to have every thing straightened
out before he passed awny.
v hen oh, how well I recollect it whon
come along ho win so overcome that be
fell over in a fit uv paralysis, 'nd the old
gentleman never got over it. For the next
three year be drooped 'nd pined, and
seemed like he couldn't hold out much
longer. Finally he bad to tuko to his bed-
be wui so old 'nd feeble but be made 'em
move the bed up against the winder so he
could watch for that lost volyume of the
oynopeedy.
The end come ono balmy day In the spring
ur '37. His Ufa wui a-ebbin' powerful fast;
the minister wui there, 'nd me, 'nd Dock
Wilson, 'nd Jedge Baker, 'nd most uv the
tam'ly. Lovln' hands smoothed the wrinkled
forehead 'nd breshed back the long, scant,
white hair, but the eyes of the dyln' man
wui sot upon that piece uv road down which
the cyclopeedy man alius come.
All at oncct ft bright 'nd joyful look come
into thorn eves 'nd ol' Leander rix up in bed
ndsex: " It's como."
" What is it, fnther?" asked his daughter
Sarey, aobbin' like.
" Hush," aei the minister, solemnly; "he
see the shiuin' gates uv the Noo Jerusalem."
" No, no," cried the need man, "it I th
cyclopeedy the letter Z if comln'l"
And cure siiougai me aoor opened ana

his wicked perfession.
Here's tho L cyclopeedy. Ur. Hobart,"
asys Higgins.
Leander clutched It; be hugged It to his
nantin' bosom; then stealln' one pal hand
under the piller ha drew out a faded bank
note Tid gavo It to Higgins,
"I thank Thee for this boon," sex Leander,
rollin his eyes up devoutly ; then be gav I
deep sigh.
"Hold on," cried Higgins, excitedly.
You've made mistake it isn't the last "
But Leander didn't bear him his soil

soared rejolcin' to realm uv everlastin'

"He I no more," set Dock Wilson, meta

One of the best testimonials to the value of the Estey
Organs is the fact that, notwithstanding the very many
Organ enterprises that have been started by ambitious era--ployes
of the Esteys, the business of this original maker
continues to grow. It is the largest reed Organ Factory
in the world; turns out a completed organ every eight min-.
utes each day. Because of their peculiar sweetness and
volume of tone, thoroughness in manufacture and popular
styles, these Organs hold the wide world for a market with
increasing vigor. Uur opponents claim
"just as good as the estey"
of
but no man wishes to say "he is prepared to furnish
better." Great numbers have been wise in their choice
an Organ, and we hope many more will make the same
selection, 'THE ESTEY."
