FLEETING TIME.
Lament who will, Id fruitless tears,
ThespeM with which our moments fly,
I sigh not over vanished years
But watch the years that hasten by,
Look I how they come a mingled crowd
Of bright and dark but rapid days;
Beneath them, like a summer cloud
The wide world changes as I gase.
Could I give np the hopes that glow
In prospect like Elyslan Isles;
And let the cheerf ul future go,
With all her promises aud smiles f
The future 1 cruel were the power
Whose doom would tear thee from my heart,
Thou sweetener of the present hour I
We cannot no-we will not part.
Oh I leave me still the rapid flight
That makes the changing seasons gay,
The grateful speed that brlngn the night,
The swift and glad return of day.
Then baste thee, Time I 'tis kludess all
That speeds thy wluged feet so fast,
Thy pleasures stay not till they pall
And all thy pains are quickly past;
A RETROSPECT—BY GRANDMOTHER.
When I was a girl and, I mind It well,
I tended a baby, and how It did yell;
It yelled so much that I vowed when I
Was of age I would bear uo baby cry.
When I was of age, and I mind it well,
With a sweet young man In love I fell ;
And I fell so far that I said "I'd see"
When he a iked : "13y love won't you marry met '
When we were married, and I mind It well,
There came a little baby, and how It did yell I
It yelled so much that the neighbors swore,
While my husband laughed, ".bey would bear no
morel"
The years passed on, and I mind them well,
For each new year cam thai same old yell;
But my Jewels so welcome to our nest,
And I said : "When I'm old then I shall have
rest."
And now I am old, but, alas I you see;
There Is no rest from that yell for me;
For sons and daughters think I ran quell
Their little crying babies when they yell, yell, yell

Mrs. Cunningham, a woman of 102 years, living

The Wiavkts or Piisliy.-The Pala'.ej hand-
loom weaver, with his sturdy Radicalism, Is, we
regret to notice, rapidly becoming extinct. The
manufacture of the famous shawls Is now regard
ed even in Pasley as only old man's work- There
are still left 916 weavers in the town : but the
average age of these workeis Is 48 years. A
glance at the pathetio statistics lately prepared by
Mr. John McKay, formerly the weavers' secretary
reveal that the rising generation has all but com
pletely deserted the onoe popular and lucrative
trade. Of the 916 weavers In Paisley, only 10 are
lads under 20; while 69 are 70 years ot age or up
wards; 192 are between 60 and 70 years ; 234 are
between 60 and 60 ; 211 are between 40 and (0, and
128 are between 80 and 40. One other fact re'
mains to be seated. Greatly reduced In numbers
though the Paisley weavers are, there are yet too

"WHOA THERE."
A Detroit man who was hunting land In An'
trim county, ran across across a settler who was
doing s ime logging with a yoke of oxen. Tbe
two sat down together on a log and had a talk,
during which It transpired that the settler bad
been a deacon in tbe southern part of the State,
and had lately moved there. By and by the De
troltnr moved on, but after traveling for half a
mile, bad to retrace bis steps to seoure closer par.
Honiara regarding the lay of a surveyed highway.
While he was yet eighty rods away he heard
shouts, and the nearer he drew the more the
shouts sounded like cuss words . When he reach
ed the clearing the settler was Jumping up and
down and pounding the oxen, which refuted to
pull on a log. Every word uttered by the settler
required three exolamatlon points to punctuate
it, and were ground out like wheat from a hopper,
"My friend, didn't I understand you to say,"'
observed tbe Detroiter, "that you were a deacon
of the oburch f"
"Whoa there, you Infernal you, or 1,11

"And you expressed the hope that you might

"I did. Back np there, you old hyena

"But the language you bavc, and are, making
use of Is entirely lnoonsis'.ent with your usaited
faith and profession."
"Stranger-whoa, you old lmpl stranger stand

"What way la that? ' asked the Djtrolter after

SOME SCOTTISH HUMOR.
"A minister's man," one of a class of whom.
Indeed, many stories are told, was following th
minister from the manae to the kirk one Sabbath,
afternoon, when tbe minister glanced baok per.
celved a Bmlle on the face of bis old atteudauL
"What makes you laugh. Jameat It Is unseem
ly. What is there to amuse you 7"
"Oh, naetbliig particular," says James; "I was
only thinking o' lomethlng that happened this
forenoon."
"What is thatt Tell me what It was."
"Weel, minister, dinna be angry wl' me; but ye
ken the congregatlou here are whiles na pleased
to get auld sermons fra' yon, aud tbla morning, I '
got tbe better of the kirk session ony way "
"Aud how was that, Jamie ?" lays tbe minister ,
" Deed, sir, when we came out o' the kirk this
forenoon, I kenned what they were thinking, and
tava I, 'KB, but you canna ca' that an auld ser
mon this day, for it's not ahuue sax weeks slnoa
you beard it last! "
Dr- McLead was proceeding from the manse oi
D to church, to open a new place of wor-
thip. As he passed slowly and gravely through
the crowd gathered about the doors, an elderly
man, with the peculiar kind of a wig konwn la
that district bright, smooth and of reddish
brown accosted him,
"Doctor, if you pleaie, I wish to apeak to you.'"
"Well, Dunoan," says the venerable dootor it
was, we believe, the father of the well-known
Scottish minister of our own day-"well, Duncan,
can you nol wait till after worship f
' No, doctor, I must speak to you now, for it is a
matter upon my conscience."
"Oh, since it is a matter of conscience, tell ma
what It Is; but be brief, Duncan, for time passes.''
"Tbe matter Is this, doctor. Ye see tbe clock
yonder, on tbe face of the new church. Well,
there is no clock really there; nothing but th
faca of a clock. There Is no truth Iu it, but only
once In twelve hours. Now It Is in my mind very
wrong, and quite against my conscience, that
there should be a He on tbe lace of the hou3 of
the Lord."
"Duncan, I will consider the point. But I am
glad to see you looking so well ; you are not so
young now ; I remember you for mauy years, and
what a floe head of hair you still have."
"Eh, doctor, you are Joking now; it Is long
since I had any hair."
"Ob, Duncan, Duncan, are you going Into the
house of the Lord with a He upon your head T"
This, says the story, settled tbe question: and
ihe doctor heard no more of the lie on the face of
tbe clock.
Grotesque and ludlcroui, producing the effector
humor, without being humorous this is often
tbe characteristic of Scottish humor. At a time
when many of the poor iu Scotland had scarcely
any notion of food but oatmeal, a gentleman ask
ed a boy one day If he did not tire of porridge .
The boy looked up astonished saylug :
"Wad ye hae me no' like my meat!"
And so we read of a wee laddie Interrogating
bis mother:
"Mltber, will we hae tea tae our breakfast th
morn ?"
"Ay, laddie, if we're spared."
"An If we're no spared, mltber, will we only
hae parrltch T"
A Scotchwoman who had acompanied her mis
tress to Ireland, bi-ini; J lered by an Irishman on
her uumarrled condition, replied iu the predcs'.l.
uariuu phissenlogy peculiar to heroisms,
"I'm truly thankful that a man was na ordainlt
to me, for maybe he might have been like your
sel." It was to Jock Amos an old wife said one day
"John, how suld will je be? ' They had boon
talking of their ages.
"Oh, I dlnna keu," said John, "It would take
a wiser head than mine to tell you that."
"It is uuco'qneer that ye dlnua ken how auld
ye are."
"I ken well enough how auld I am," said John .
"but I dlnna ken how auld I'll be."
THEY ALL KNOW.
Once In a lifetime you meet a man who will ad
mlt that he doesn't know all about a hone, bnt
he may come around next day and claim to hav
been temporarily Insane when he made tbe ad
mission, As a rule, every man knows exactly
what ails a horse, whether anything alls him or
not, and can point out a lozm instances where
nature could have improved on her work.no mat
ter how well she did it.
Yesterday a horse which had been looked over
by the ire department and rejected on account
of size was tied to a post on Grtswold street. He
was as sound as a dollar, not even showing a
wind-puff. Pretty soon along came two lawyers,
and one of them remarked :
"Pity such a flue animal as that la foundered."
"Yes, aud I can aee that he is wind broken to
boot," was the ready response.
Then the cashier of a bank baited and took a
look at the horse's teeth. He was going away,
when a mail carrier asked :
"How old do you sail him ?"
"Some men might buy him for 12, but they
couldn't fool me. That horse will never see 1C
again."
Tue Judges had ca:ledhlm6,and his owner had
proofs that he wasn't a month older. The mail
carrier felt of the animal's ribs, rubbed his spin
and observed :
"He's got tbe botts or I'm no Judge of horses."
Then a merchant halted and surveyed th
horse's legs, lifted Its front feet, plnohed its knee
and feelingly said :
"Been a pretty good stepperiln his day, but be'l
gone to the crows now."
The next man was a keeper. It took him but
five minutes to make np his mind that sweeny
was Ihe leading ailment, althougn poll evil,
heaves and glanders were present in a bad form.
"What Is sweeny ?" queried an Innocent boot
black, who had made up his mind that tbe hers
had liver complaint.
"Sweeny?'' repeated the book-keeper "look at
tbe way he carries his tall and learn what sweeny
is."
"Oh, no," put In another "sweeny affeots th
eyes."
"I guess not," said an lnsuranoe man; "I gnet
Sweeney affects the lungs."
"Lungs?" cried a broker "yon mean th
stomach I '
And they were Jangling over It when the owner
of the horse came and led him away.
FACTS WORTH REMEMBERING.
One thousand shingles, laid four Inches to th
weather, will cover on hundred square feet of
surface, and five pounds of shingle nails will fas
ten them on.
Oue flfth more s'.dlng and flooring Is needed
than the number of square feet of surface to b
covered, because of the lap In the siding and
matohlng of the floor.
One thousand laths will cover seventy yard
surface, and eleven pounds of lath nails will
call tbem on.
Eight buahela of lime, sixteen bushels ol sand,
and one bushel of balr, will make enough good
mortar to plas'.er to covet one hundred square
yards.
A cord of stone, three bushels of lime, and a
cublo yard of sand will lay one hundred oublo
feet of wall. ,
Five corns a of brick, will lay one foot in height
on a chimney, six brioks in a oonrss will make a
flue four Inches wide and sixteen lnchea long.
The law assists those who are vigilant, and not
thosj who sleep over their rights.
A QUEER NOTION.
Many people think It cheaper to bny J6 oent
lsea of a proprietary medicine. But they mak
a mistake. For Instance, Dr. Wlstar's Balsam of
White Cherry contains about eight time th
quantity of ordinary 25 cent cough balsams. Ba
al les it takes a less quantity of Wistar's Balsam
to oure a cold. A slugle dose la often sufficient.
For deep aeated colds and consumption It ha
proven itself to be the beat and quickest oure ev
r discovered . ft
"THE DOCTOR TOLD ME"
