What a crowd of pleasant memories are recalled by the mere mention of the name. It is an old aud loved as sociate which is connected with the happiest period of our lives. It is a gentle remembrancer of youth, of home and comfort. It was in the shadows of the old chimney corner that we dreamed of our brilliant future; there fancy construe! ed "her gay frost work which vanished when confronted by the stern realities and ancompromlMng facts of life. The source of much felicity is the old fire place with its cozy, hospitable look. But the American, in the conscious Dfide of his practical' tenets, in his strong love for a "Lread aud butter" philosophy, and in tne neat or nis ad miration for new Kimcracks, has ostracized the homely old fireplace and now it is rapidly becoming a thing of tne past, ll nas oeen oan ithed from respectable society. It can only be tolerated at present in a lumberman's nut or an irisnman's shanty. Tills state or attain exists not on account of the supplies of wood being exhausted, not because a black, shape less and unsightly metal stove is moie cheerful or comfortable than a broad fireplace, but simply because that tern arbiter of human action, public opinion, says that tne stove la prefer able. The stove is recommended on the acore of cheapness, convenience and many other specious pleas. Now we are very well aware of the fact thai the average American preaches and practices habits of fru gality. We heartily commend him for bis economic principles. No one can be happy who disregards their monitions. But we think there may be questions in regard lo what true economy is. We know farmers who almost starve their stock and sell few tons of hay. Is this real econo my? We know others who live in ignorance, becauce books aud pareta cost money. Is this economy We have seen people work with worn out tools, because it would be a consider able xpense to get new ones. Is this good management? And we know that-, the great mass of farmers and villagers throughout the Western Re serve have abandoned the old fire place with its crackling logs, fot the narrow, stilted grate with its black, smokinz coal. We most respectfully ask, Is this true economy? Many are ready to answer in tne amrmative. You say, "it costs more to cut the wood than to buy the coal ; therefote coal is the cheaper fuel." Let us ad mit your assertion in regard to the comparative d-st of wood and coal, and have you established your point ? Ought yon not to take into contioera tku something beyond mtre dollars and cents Wheu you go to your tailor for a new coat you do not always buy the on. that costs the least money. And why ? 6inrply from the fact that you consult your taste in reference to color, quality of cloth, Ac. All that we ask Is that yoa apply the same taste when yoa are getting your win ter's fuel. Do you really like acoal fire better than wood ? II so, then your nse of coal is true economy; nth' rwiHe it is not. But Wbo that bas pent the evenings ot bis youth around i tie broad, warm ami generous hearth stone of an oldrabined fireplace, can honestly say that he prefers coal to wood We have known persons who were accustomed tu a coal fire, to en ter a room in which a flue wood fire was glowing. Tbey were loud and enthusiastic in their expressions of pleasure and enjoymenLTbey esteem ed it a rare luxury. Iu very truth we believe that an ample hearth warmed by a blazing wood fire, is one of the greatest and cheapest luxuries within the reach of our farmers. Their wood lots will furnish enough dead or fallen trees.for the winter's fire, which might otherwise not. The labor spent in cutting will be fully rewarded during the long Winter nights as they sit and watch the lund tongues of flame leap ing upward. Who is so blind to fact that he would ignore the influence of circumstances. A child that is bro't up iu good society will unconsciously adopt the manners of that society. The mention of a name, an old scene or some other equally - accidental and trival occurrence, may recall a flood of remembrances almost forgotten. The middle aged and elderly men and women of to-day, spent their youth ful evening in cracking' nuts on a genial neartn-sione, or in tracing tne inytic figures of the glowing embeis. Let one of these revisit a room warm ed by- a bright wood . fire. What a bnstor pleasant memories are recalled! What an air of quiet contentment and peace seems to envelope them ! The tubles-and bustle of the present are 1 tid aside and enjoyment rules for the hour. The thought of an oldfashion- i fire place suggests at once the s.urdy race of pioneers who subdued lue primitive forests, conquered the savage, and laid the foundation for our present greatness ana prosperity. Their simplicity, energy and honesty cannot be too highly esteemed or too loudly extolled; solicitous are we then, to retain the old wood fire aa souvenir of the past. We believe it condusive of morality, kiadly feeling and hap piness, i nereis an essence concen trated within the poiesof the hickory or oak which being diffused, fills the atmosphere, enecta . the sensitive nerves and induces a mood favorable for Introspection or a uiet thought. . Donold G. Mitchell, wrote . the "Reveries of a Bachelor." Any one who has ever read it will call it a good book and a valuable acquisition to our literature.

Sheridan has solved the Indian puzzle, in a report to Gen. Sherman.- lie says: " I fully indorse the efforts now being made to civilize aud christianize the wild Indiana, and think that the reservation system and the policy of the government toward the wild tribes is the most liberal and humane that haa ever been adopted by any government toward savage people, and, so far as the military is concerned, every effort should be mad. to carry out its intentions. - The prin cipal error that I discover is, that while efforts are being made to reach the Indian what is right, sufficient Importance has not been given to teaching trim what is wroug. I very much fear that the course pursued to ward the wild Indian does not cause him to fully realize from his own standpoint that he ia doing wrong when he commit murders and other depredation, and if some wise system of punishnr ent could be arranged and carried out, which would have the ef fect of controlling him in this respect, it would much sooner terminattf'the Indian troubles on our frontier.'-.- '-'AtfaleTfct tt worth s ehlp-loaa of argument. THE PRESIDENT. General Sherwood's Response to the Toast to the President at Dayton Reunion. 'J he Prtrident of the United State, The central force of the freest, the most muscular, and the most thor oughly alive nation npnn earth is too much of a subject for a ten min utes' talk at a soldiers' supper. Wheth er this sentiment be to the office, or the man who holds it, I have neltner language to exalt the position, nor fresh tributes to the mau who exalts the office. The pinnacle of the American poli tician the Presidential chair, which. judging from the present, by the past, is liable to oe warmea ny a soldier, but never by a philosopher so near and so dear to ambition, ia too elabo rate a place of upholstery to be Jostled around this convivial board. Let us rather talk of that broad based, strong nerved, eminently just and practical man, wbo led our armies through the breakers of war, who bas guided this nation so calmly through the break ers of civil strife. It is difficult, how ever, to separate the man Grant from the President Graut. The name is so iudissolubly connected with the great events of the past decade, civil aa well as martial, that we can scarcely read our history without finding it shining on every page. It is one of the feli cities ot General Grant's public life tbat he is so honorably awociated with both war and peace.; With war aa the commander of all our armies, with ueaee as the successful advocate of arbitration for Hie settlement of international controversies. He teas first ia war; he is first in peace, and the November tribute of thirty great States warrants the assertion that he is first in the hearts of his country men. The name of Washington always calls up the war of the revolution. And yet the career of Washington, aa Pieeideut, in harmonizing the poli cies among the great leaders of the revolution, in avoiding entangling alliances with foreign natious; in crj'Btnliziug the inbreathing spirit ot a new born liberty into a national life aud setting the jc-ang republic on the track of empire give him a higher place in history and more strongly endear his memory to the hearts of his countrymen than his career as a soldier. The mention of Grant always calls up his career as a soldier, and yet, when we shall all be under the sod wheu the political bickerings and ani mosities of the hour rhall have been forirotten when the impartial histo rian, seeking the salient events of this epoch, not from living witness es but dead books shall give Grant his place In history, it will be found that his career as President contribu ted more to the great cause of unity and fraternal love among hi people than his unequaled services in war; and his treaty at Washington wiH take its place as tne most magnificent contributiot. to the cause of civiliza tion and the peace of natious in ail history, lo saying this I do not be little Grant's cervices as a soldier nor do I desire that those services should be forgotten. I would not hide the soldier in the President. Grant fought the rebellion in manly combat, with bullets and bayonets, and through red mouthed cannon. A more learned man thau be, in the National Capitol, fought the same re bellion with Greek fire from the Pa gan caaaics, through . the Congres sional Globe. Each had a mission, aud each fulfilled it well, the pres ence of one at the While House is no more a menace to the defeated South than the other in ibe Senate. Grant's presence at the Whit. House is tieace. Grant's presence at tne White House secures peace to the inmate of the low est cabin in this laud. Graut'a pres ence at the White House is a shining light in the nation's pathway to glory and refutation of the slauder to uiau's humanity that republics are ungrate fuL Nor do I believe that oft-quoted assertion that lb. pen is mightier than the sword. I beli. v. it is a cheap entimeutalisni that belies the logic of history. Every conquest of value ainre God made man bas been thro' heroic sacrifice, and the blood of martvrs. It was not the blossoming rod of Moses, but the swift sword of Joshua, that gave tne promised laua to IsiaeL It was not the Declaration of Independence that made possible our nationality, but Washington' at Valley Forge. The unification of both Germany aud Italy have been aceom plisbed oy the sword. Lincoln's proclamation- of Emancipation ' bas been cited as a great triumph of the pen, but this was but the sentiment of a nation quickened into life by; the mad havoc of war, ai.d .intensified into expression through the despera tion of the conflict. Not all the ink jugs in this laud, preaching emanci pation through a million pens, would have created such an outburst of patri otic emotion as that crash of cannon shot against the walls of Sumpter. When cannon speak, naiiohs think, and amid the clasn of great armies they think great thoughts. Old John Brown wrote tiie Emancipation Proc lamation on the mountains of Vir ginia before Lincoln dreamed, or dreaming would dared to have uttered it- But he wrote it with his blood. Was it not bis soul that went march ing on? But it was not Proclama tion of Emancipation that freed the slaves; it was Lincoln, as comman der in chief of the army. It was not the phitiplcs ol Sumner in the Senate, maKuificentand classic, and cold, that destroyed slavery aud rescued our nationality; it was Grant in lront of Lee, Thomas in Tennessee, and Sher man and his boys thundering to the sea.. Tbat wonderful English barris ter, Phillip James Bailey, says in his Festus : "While men are what they are ; while rights are worth maintain ing, freedom keeping or life having, so long shall the sword shine." It was Mazzinl who said: "The angel of marurdom aud the angel of victory are brothers; the one looks up from the eartn aud the other looks down from Heaven and it is only from epoch to epoch that their eyes meet between earth and Heaven, tbat creation isembelished with new- life, and people arlae.evaugelist or prophet, from the cradle or the tomb." : r : Was mat not a grander epoch -for us and for all humanity when the war c ouds lifted above the last crini sou battle field, and the angels ol peace, serenely grand in the bright aurora of a new nation, came forth to meet the auitelof martyrdom and the angel of victory ? And is it not a .fitting climax lo this the grandest epoch or the ages, tiiat tne greatest sildier who swung bis victorious eagles thiough the sulpbry smoke of battle into the silent air of peace, aud our liberties and our nationality were safe, should guide a grateful people in in thelrgraud career of empire? This is Graut, the soldier, the President, the man. Like Tennyson's magnifi cent Duke he stands before you great in saving common sense, and simpli lity sublime. When hla mission as President is ended, may it be our good fortune as a nation to find auotber leader as robust in manhood, as firm ly grounded in principle, as faithful and as safe.

The one thought that pervaded all minds at the time of my visit to Taos, was the coming feast of St. Jerome among the Pueblo Indians. Tbey are called Pueblo (dwellers in towns) to dirtingulfh them from the roving tribes. As at the great annual gath erings i f the Jews, all the national roads leading up to Jerusalem were thronged, so. at Taos, they gathered In from all the neighboring nations. Inquiring my way along a blind trail, I was told to fol'ow the crowd. The way was thronged with Mexicans, on foot aud on donkeys, families in rude l.n OaltS ill Oilier VSCODI Slid WWM .. . - . r crria9f Apacbe braves, with their t-.am rKh.fi them 'Xavfiio beaux.

Ute Indians, from camp retainers to the villainous old chief who turned np his nose at the last peace delegation, and told them that be did not believe they ever came from Washington. Pueblos, in their best toilets, Ameiieaos, Ger mans and Freni.h. gathered in, until the town was wild with excitement. At length the day dawned, and the multitude awarmed out to the Pueblo, some two or three miles distant. Ar riving at the village, we were face to face with two great adobe bouses, six stories high, and irregularly built. These two buildings are the home of I.;. ..itu, w, n in l.VU) the Krian- iards forced their war up the valley of the Rio Grande, tnese iiuiiuiug were standing in the same condition that they are now, and inhabited by the samo race of people, with substantial ly the rame cueti ms. How many more cen uries they have stood tradi tion does not say, and the people have no written language. Ascending a series of ladders from the outside, aud standing upon the roof of the topmost story, before us lay the broad valley of the Rio Grande, the radiating point of our earlier American civilization, where, in an cient times, may have flourished em pires " that would vie in power with the Babylonian or Perciao, aud ciths tbat might have rivaled Ninevhj fur of these empires and these citiee, the plains of Asia now exhibit fewer, and even lesa imposing relics, than are found of the former luhabitanta of this territory." At our feet was a gathering of tribes and nations, such as, perhaps, could be found at no other point In the United States. The great plaza was crowded with them. In the center of the plaza was a tall greased pole, ciowned with a live sheep, bottle, of wine, melons and dry goods. To the north was a booth erected for the Virgin Mary and St. Jerome, while they watched the games. First came high mass at the Roman Catholic church. Twelve I n dian warriors stood as sentinels at the door, and discharged their guns at various parts ot the i-eavice, while an other warrior pounded the stationary bell upon the root. While a portion M.r inili.n. avr lii the church. another portion were in the Estufas . , , i i. : .. iw.l. (neatueii tempies; mruaiug deities for succtss in the approaching games. Mass being said, a coarsely dressed doll (Virgin Mary), and a smaller one (St. Jerome), with a doll baoy (infant Jesus) in his arms, were brought out and carried under a canopy of silk, in nnwudinn In till) bfKlttl. Whef6 tbfV could overlook the race-course. As the procession reached the booth, a series of bowls aud short, quick barks were heard, as the racers emerged from an ettua, which bowls were an swered by a similar series of barks fiom the opjjositig company, as they came out of theii eatvfa across the creek. The racers were naked, with the exception of the breech-cloth, their bodies besmeaied, some with yehow and others with a drab-colored clay. Some were greated, and then feathered. Some had a line of grease with feathers adhering to the grease, under the left arm and over the right noulder, representing a sash. One or two had a row of eagle feathers around the waist, and all bad lied around ihe neck, wrists and ankles a blade of Spanish bayonet. Forming lu pro cession, and led by the mueicof drums (which drums resembled beer kegs with hides pulled over tbem), they slowly danced, with short, guttural barks, and the strewing of branches, to their position. During mass, thirty or forty halF drunkeu Mexicans bad been reckless ly .riding up and down the course, flourishing Jive rooster, aud attempt ing to snaicb it from one another ; but the course Was now cleared, and the foot-racing- commenced. Both aides of the course were Hued wilh teams aud spectators, and every standing point on the terraced roof of the bouses was OCCUpiea. 1 ue races over, the Indians danced back tolheirtg- .,.

There are now nineteen towns or pueblos in different portiouBof New Mexico. The9e Indi- ns claim to be the descendants of the Aztecs, wno, about the vear 1200, dispossessed the Toltecs. and became masters of nearly all of Mexico. Their empire culmin ated in the reign of Montezuma, who was the Grand Cacique or tne Aztecs, being their prophet, priest aud king. Each pueblo is a kingdom within Itself. Their chief officer (Cacique) Is hereditary. The chief meu, or coun cil, are nominate", ny me vaciqu auu voted for by the people. Tbe hold cil vo offl Ice for one year. rhe pueblos have a language of their n. but use the Spanish in their in 1 ow tercourse with the outside world. They seldom marry outside or tne vil lage, aud are slowly decreasing in population. Each pueblo has two poi square leagues of land, and are very BC: w wealtuy. During tne laie war iiiejr loaned the government many thou sands or dollars. Tbey dwell in huge adobe build ings. These buildings are five or six stories high, each story being "mailer thau the one beneath it, thus forming a terrace. - There are no doora to the first or ground story, entrance beiug gained by ladder to the top of the terrace, then threugb a trap-dooc in the roof, and down another ladder in to the room beneath. In timet of danger, the outside ladder Is rr.lled np upon the fiat roof, and the bunding is turned into a fortress. : : Th. sixth story is used aa a mill, where th. women grind their grain between two stones, with motion similar to rubbing clothes upon a washboard, and they certainly know how to make good bread. That which was offered to us waa excellent. Each family has its suite of rooms, and those which we visited were snug and clean, the walls being neatly white washed. Upon the arrival of the Spaniards, these Indians were nominally con verted to Roman Catholicism, but in reality their Paganism waa merely baptized. While tbey have a Romish church in each pueblo, and attend mas, they also have their estufas, in which they keep burning the sacred fire, and worship the sun- .. . . The estufa is a room under ground, is shape like an. inverted bowl. The one into which we went waa about twenty feet in diameter at the bottom. The only opening is the trap-door en trance at the top. In the center of this room was a depression in the dirt floor of about two feet square, filled wilh ashes from the sacred fire. Up on the eastern edge of this hearth was a rude aliar, upon which, according to tradition and Mexican belief, they I'll sometimes sacrifice children. . Eight or ten boys are annually set apart to keep the sacred fire burning. " Tbey cherish the tradition tbat Montezu ma, w bo established this Taos village, taught them to build pueblos, and kindled their sacred fires; also planted a tree, predicting, tbat after his disappearance there would be ro rain, aud that a foreign race would subjugate them. i " But be commanded tbem to keep the fiies burning until the fall of the tree, when white men from the East would overwhelm their oppressors, raiu would again increase, and he would soon e-establish his kingdom. Tbey aver that the tree fell just as the triumphant Americans entered Santa Fein lc-W." And now they await bis coming. Each morning, it ia said, one appoint ed for the purpose ascends- to the house-top at su arising, to see if Mon tezuma is not coming. As the Jews of old looked for a Messiah that should deliver them from Roman bondage, aud restore to them the kingdom, so do these Pueblos look for Montezuma to restore their kingdom. And as the Jews received a spiritual kingdom, so let these Pueblos receive the gospel at the .hands of the " white men from the East." And aa tbey watch the rising sun, let them behold the more glorious risinsr of the Sun of Right eousness. Herald and Presbyter.. LEAF FROM A LIFE. The simple facts recorded in this story occurred in a city not many miles from here. It would be impos sible for such a case to happen in Chicago. We are the personification of Charity. We are Angels, and this is Paradise! Therefore, I wish it dis tinctly understood that I write of a j ttiful case," as the papers called It, which came under my notice in a dis tant city, years ago. As a rule, physicians are the most charitable of men. Tbey may not give fortunes away in alms; but their lime, which ro tbem is money, is freely given to the suffering, in more cases than one might suppose, "with out money and without price." It was upon a freezing cold night that a young - phys dan stepped into the warm, well-lighted office of a mer chant prince. The doctor was poor and needy; his coat was worn and threadbare, and furnished but little protection agalLst the cold of the sea son, because be lab red among the poor, and gave his time to those wbo were unable to pay for It. The merchant was a wealthy, piou-, "eminently respectable" member of society. He waa the mainstay of a church, the promoter of charitable schemes, and a subscriber to alt char ities which were backed by influ euce, or conferred distinction upon t be giver. The world at large honor ed bis name; but the men in his em ploy were wont to smile mysteriously when his charities were mentioned in their bearing, and one of them was once beard to remark thai be "never knew a man so well named-" Now, strange to say, this model man's name aa- Cantter. So, into Mr. Cantter's offlce the young physician walked with some tiepidatioii ; but, being one of the world at large, was confident tbat he would be beard, for he was on a beg ging expedition ; not f-r himself h would rather have died than beg but for a poor boy who lay dying in a tenement houve in Dead Man's row- lay dying of starvation. It was too late to save his life that the doctor knew; but he hoped to raise sufficient money to make the boy comfortable for the remnant of life left him. As he opened the door of the counting room, he saw Mr. Cantter standing before the glowing grate-nre, declaim ing nobly uion the beauties ol true charity to bis book-keeper, who.being hard pushed to live upon the pittance paid him by his employer, was not as entnusiaslic as nis employer would have bad him. - " and has not charity, it profit- eth him nothing," aid Mr. Cantter. in a loud tune of voice, as the door oiiened, and the thought flashed tbrougn bis mind tbat perhaps it was the pastor of bis church. The doctor entered, and suddenly the flood of eloquence which Mr. Cantter was pouring out upon the unresisting clerk was hushed, for he knew the doctor, and knew also that he waa about to ask for money, and his hands came from behind bis back, went Into bis pockets and remained there. The doctor, by way of tx ginning, re marked upon the severity of the weatner. "Yes," said Mr. Cantter "God help the poor!" The bookkeeper, bending over the ledger, smiled to himself, but said nothing. The doctor hardly liked the-expres-sion upon the merchant's face, and the oily unction with which these words rolled from bis mouth, but resolutely dashed at his subject. He depicted the sufferings of the dwellers iu Dead Mail's row; the tumble down houses, admitting the wind and snow at every corner; the famine which reigned in tbem ; and then, excited by the troubles he had witnessed, he appealed to the merchant to help those who were nnable to help them selves. Warmth usually begets warmth, and it ia therefore singular, but not less true, that as the doctor warmed Mr. Cantter cooled, and when be bad finished speaking tbat gentleman said: "I can do nothing for you. I am a subscriber to the Magdalens' Home, the .-Esculapius Hospital, the Seamen's Refuge, the North Pole Missions, the ii "But this is ." "Tract Societies," continued Mr. Cantter, calmly ignoring; the doctor, "and many other charities. I find my time entirely taken up, and I ean neither spare time nor money to aid a vagabond who may be deceiving you "There can be no deception in star vation." "Weil, may lie not; but I might be placing a premium on dishonesty ,and I bo to aid worthy objects." "All worthy, no doubt; but this is a cate of such utter wretchedness. A boy, a little morsel of a child, dying for want of food," pleaded the doctor. . "I dare say," said Mr. Cantter; 'but charily, to be effectivepaust be well directed. You must come to our church next Sunday. We have the finest preacher in the city, and, as bis sermon is upon charity, you will no doubt be able to pront oy nis sugges tions." "But about the boy," amid the doe tor, fearful that the conversation would wander away from the subject which interested him more than the sermon which was in prospect. "1 can't squander mouey on uch objects." said the merchant, again suddenly diopping from, warmth to cold. "I can give you a letter to the Poor Children's Home, and at the next meeting of the Board" "D n the Board," said the doctor, now thoroughly indignant. "Profanity ! And in my presence!" exclaimed the mendicant, 'You shock me, sir-' "Shock you!" said the doctor. "Shock you ! How have you shocked me with your lying talk of charity ? I it charity to go to a fine church, to listen to a sensational preacher? Is it charity te go to a luxurious home, to eat a grand dinner, and talk over the sermon ? Is it charity to ait on a vel vet sofa before a blazing fire to look through French plate glass window at the houseless, hungry poor as they hurry by, and say, 'God help the poor?' Shame upon sucb charity ' "Sir!" said Mr. Cantter. The book keeper smiled encouragingly upon the speaker. "Shame upon such charity, I say," continued he, borne on by the flood of indignation. "A true, noble charity is the best thing upon earth ; but a hypocritical charity should be a weight sufficient to damn any soul." Aud, slamming the door to, the doc tor strode away. ' "I am truly shocked at that young man's reckless use of strong terms," -aid Mr. Cantter; "but," he added, reflectively, "let us hope that be will see the error of his ways and repent before it is too late. I hope, Mr. Strong, tbat you will take warning from him, and be more regular in your attendance at cburch. By the way. to morrow is Sunday, and vou must come to our church and hear Mr. Highfalutin on Charity.' " The doctor, disheartened at his re buff, and thoroughly indignant at the hypocrisy of which he had been a witness, paused irresolutely upon the corner, and as be stood there he heard a quick step behind him ; then a band hurriedly thrust a small roll of money into his: and turning, he was just in time to see the form of Mr. Cantter's book keeper disappearing in the gloom. The Bum was email, but it was sufficient for the purpose, and, with a lighter heart, the doctor went his way to Dead Man's row. A narrow, filthy passage-war be tween two houses leads from the fine thoroughfare into a narrow, filthy court, aud at the end of the court standa Dead Mau'a row, immediately in tne rear or a nne cnurcn Mr. Cantter's church. Why this name was ever conferred upon these tumble down old rookeries, I am not able to sUle. Suffice it to say tbat tbey were so called, and at the first glance one was apt to acknowledge Its suitable ness. As the doctor passed down the wretched looking court he stopped one minute to shake hla fist at the church looming up so grandly before him, then opened the door of one of tne most wretcneu looKing nouses lo the block. Up lour pairs of creaking swaying stairs ne went, and then having arrived at the garret, stooped to avoid the sloping roof, and entered a squalid, comfortless room. There was no furniture of auy kind to be seen, and do tire. The wind bL-w In at the windows and the door, and snow had drifted in at the same place, and lay in little piles upon the floor. , A woman, clothed in rags, sitting by a straw pallet in one corner of ibe room, arose as he entered, and looked at hitn inquiringly, "Yes," he said, 'after some trouble.' "Thank the Lord for that!" sbe answered, fervently. "The poor boy can die in peace, at any rate." "I ordered the things sent np. Is he asleep?" . "Unconscious like," answered the woman. "His brain wanders a little at times." A little morsel of a boy lay upon the bed tne unmistakable mark or ram ine in bis face. The doctor bent over him, and, looking into bis face a moment, said to the woman, standing silent at bis side: "His pain is over. He will proba bly live until morning, but he will never again be conscious." The long night passed, day dawned and the boy still lived. Themoiniug wore on, and cnurcn time came. Car riages rattled up to the door of the church and discharged their loads ot silks, satins and broadcloths. The bowing ushers opened the doors of the crimson-lined, luxurious pews, and tne conn relation slowlv assembled- "Whs do you know of charity?' thought the doctor. "Here, not more than twenty reet from the pulpit ot your cburch, povrty reigns supreme; yet not one of you all ever took the trouble to look here for a field of Use fulness. Y'ou give a little from your abundance, aud plume yourselves upon your cnaritaoie hearts; and from that poor woman bv the bed you might learn much. Sbe cbeer-, fully gives what she can her time iu behalf of a boy sbe never saw be fore, and " The organist of the church com menced the voluntary, and an excla mation from the woman brought the doctor to the bed. The little sufferer moved uneasily ; then a smile came upon his wan race, a far away look into nis eyes. "I hear music," he murmured. Was it the sont of the angel.-, or the strains of the grand organ, that he heard ? Wbo cau ten ; "He is going fast," whispered the doctor. : The woman was silentiy we ping, and covered her face with her hands. And the first notes of "Come, ye disconsolate," came to them from the church. Again the far away look came into the boy's eyes, tbe smile upon his lips; his thin white hand stirred upon tbe bed, and, while the last strains still lingered upon the air, he turned his face to tbe wall, and so died. And as tbe man in a threadbare coat and tbe woman In rags knelt by his side and prayed silently, in tbe church tne preacher, clothed in broad cloth, arose aud gave out his text: "Charity covereth a multitude of sins." Silks and satins rattled as their wearers seated themselves to listen. and the sermon went on, and in glow ing language depicted the want and wretchedness of tbe poor; and the vast congregation listened with rapt attention. L pon tbe speaker, too, tbe subject took a hold, and by degrees bis gestures became more natural ana lest studied, his phrases more earnest and less glittering. So tbe sermon went on, and at fast, after a thrilling appeal, the preacher raised bis jeweled hands, cast up his eyes, and cried, aa though in agony i "God help the poor!" and the vast congregation bowed, and softly mur mured: "God help the poor!' And then well, then the service was ent'ed, and the preacher and con gregation went home to their dinners, and left Chanty entirely in the hands of the Almighty. Louis Dorr, in Chicago Tribune.

About two-thirds of our receipts of butter for some weeks past has been of so poor a quality as to render it ai most unsaleable, and we are almost tired of calling attention to the fact that choice quality is scarce and want ed, while the common aud medium grades are plenty and dull. Even now, when tne choicest butter ot the year is received, the quautity that comes up to the highest standard is comparatively small, and it fc- mani fest that there la a want of practical skill on the part of butter manufact urers, or there would not be so much poor stuff made. The remedy for all this iow grade of butter is the institu tion of butter factories, in which skilled labor, system and neatness can do as much for this portion of the dai ry business as cheese factories have for ihe cheese trade. Butter ia a compli cated substance, consisting of eight fatty acids, in combination with a pe culiar sweet liquid called glycerine. The process of making if is not les-s complicated than is the substance it self, and we do not expect to see its manufacture perfect until it is made in .butter factories, under the super vision of skillful hands. Since "the introduction of cheese factories, Uia average quality of cheese has greatly risen, and the export has iucreaseH from 1,000,000 of pounds to 60,O0V,m'. The factory cheese commands on the average at least one cent more per pound than does the domestic, and as we make about 250,000,000 pouuds an nually, the total increase of rcouey value to the country from cheese fact ories is 2,500,0u0. There is here and there a dairy in which as good bulter and cheese are made as iu the factory; We are willing to concede tba. a bet ter article is made in some domestie dairies than in the factory; but this does not militate against the principle that the average production of ths country would be increased both in quantity and quality, were all ouf eheee and butter made on the co-operative factory system. In the domes tic uairy, butter making is mainly an art; in the factory, science and prac tice are com Lined, or should taiiJ both have scone for action in the won derful proceui by whicn butter is evolved from milk, and originally from grass. Boston Shipping Liz'. . ; BEGGARS' DEVICES. The "deformity nuisance" is made a matter of complaint by the Boston newspapers. The mendicants who thrust out a mutulated arm. or dis close a distorted limb, and the whole class of beggars w bo make a commo dity of their deformities have niaiie a descent on the Hub, and the outcry is raised for the intervention of tbe po lice. The Boston Globe savs tbat a dwarf Germai. girl may be seen on the streets of tbe city, wilh a little tiu box strapped about her neck for the reception of coin, owns a tine bonsi- in New York, and is building a rou' of tenement houses in Brooklyn. .rn. other imposture is practiced by a niel ancbol, woman, with a hand organ, accompanied by a child, which lies from morninx till nitrbtina rjernetuxl stupcr, aud whose white lips aud uu natuial paleness apptal to the passer by. The child, savs the Glnhr i daily drugged with opium, and if oili er like faa.'l8 were known, nine-tenthn of the persistent askers for alms on the street, says the paper, would be better able to give thau many thev importune.
