IF WE KNEW.
If we knew when walking thoughtless
Through the crowded n.isy way.
That some pearl of wondrous whiteness
Close beside our pathway lay;
We would pause when now we hasten.
We would often look aiound.
Lest our careless feet should trample
Some rare Jewel in the ground.
If we knew what forms were fainting
For the shade that we should fling.
If we knew what lips were parching
For the water we should bring,
We should baste with eager footsteps.
We would work with willing hands,
Bearing cups of cooling water.
Planting rows or shading palms.
If we knew when friends around us
Closely press to say good-by.
Which among the lips that kiss us.
We would clasp oar arms around them.
Looking on them through onr tears,
-Tender words of love eternal,
We would whisper in their ears.
li we knew what lives were darkened
By some thoughtless word of ours,
Which had ever laia among them
Lice the frost among the flowers;
Oh, with sincere repentlngs.
With what anguish of regret.
While our eyes were overflowing,
Would wc CTjfortfte forget.
If we ksew,"alas! and do we
Ever care or seek to know.
Whether bitter herbsor roses,
In our neighbor's gardens growf
God forg ive us, lest hereafter.
Our hearts break to hear him say,
Careless child, I never knew yon.
From my presence See away.
IF WE KNEW. NELLY'S WEDDING.
BY WM. H. MABER.
I declare, I con Id no more realize that
our Selly was abont to be married than
I could account for the white hairs that
Kitty points out to me In my hair and
whiskers. I do not know where the
years have gone. Kitty and I very of
ten speak of these years, but not as if
they had -passed, away -from us; they
are more like old friends, Whb are just'
as dear as when we first knew them;
just as securely nestled among the good
things in our hearts.
Yes, God has been ycry' good to us'.
This thought is never out of our mind,
He ha3 guided our lives with so loving
hand that the years. have passed away
and left no sign.
Sot that they were all sunshine or
laughter. Say, there were many days
weeping, and there Is a tremor, even
now, In Kitty's voice, whenever she
peaks of the two little hearts that were
taken to heaven before they had reach-
thelr tenth years. AU laughter?
a, I thank God new, truly and heartl-
, for the sadness that came to us, just
as truly and heartily as I thank Him
for all of our happiness.
Death has no terrors for us when it
will but take us from our children
in heayen, and If we had not known
what it was to suffer we could not hare
understood how to sympathize with
others who mourned.
And yet as I said before, I could not
realize that all these years had passed
over me, and that our Selly, our dar
ling was old enough to leave us.
To be sure I saw that Tom Baron was
a very constant visitor at our house but
he played and sang a great deal more
with Grace than he did with her older
sister, Selly, and he always had some
question, to ask me, and was sure to find
occasion to have chat with' Kitty; so
that I had no reason to think' that the
boy had any idea of marrying, and es
pecially of marrying our Selly.
Kitty saw It all and supposed that I
did; but then Kitty Is much quicker to
see the bottom of things than I am.
I was qulto taken back when Tom
told me he wanted to marry Selly.
Marry Selly!" said I, "why bless
us Tom ; you are only a couple of chil
Tom laughed, as he answered, "I am
twenty-four and Selly is twenty."
"I know," said I; "but then, what is
twenty? flrtiy the girl is but a child
"We are old enough to love each
other," said he, with n quick dignity
that made me respect the boy more.
"You have spoken to Selly then?" I
asked. "Yes, sir, I have told Sellv
that I loved her."
"And what did she say ?"
"She consented to become my wife if
you and her mother consented."
"But she didn't say that she loved
you! Come now, she didn't say that
she loved you, did she?"
"There was no need of saying it. I
saw it in her face."
Just then Kitty came into the room,
and I must say I felt relieve to see her.
"What do you suppose Tom has been
telling me ?" I asked her.
"From the puzzled look in your face
should imagine it was something
She didn't look at all surprised, as I
imagined she would.
"Well," said she, in her tendcrest
tone, "we have'nt any fault to find with
Tom, have we?"
"Fault!" said I, more puzzled than
ever at the cool way she took it. "But
they are a couple of children yet!"
"Just two such children as you and I
were, UicWv 'Wc can certainly trust
our Selly with Tom, father, 'and I am
glad and thankful that she has won so
good a man's love." She stooped over
as she said these words and-kissed Tom
and I knew she had taken him into bur
heart of hearts where she' held me and
Of course Qi'erewas'nonseof mVsay-
ing anything more except to give him
fatherly advice, and then to call Selly
In and kiss tbem both.
As she came Into the room I acknowl
edged to myself that she was a woman,
and I had no fears but that she would
be a good wife; for a better or more
loving daughter never lived.
It seemed that Tom was very impa
tient to be married, but whenever I
said this to Kitty, she laughed and re
called some speeches I had made in our
Selly was not so constantly sewing
but that she and I had long walks
and talks together, and the dear child
was so like her mother, I could fancy I
was young and chatting with Kitty.
And Tom and I were often together,
too. I found him as full of hope and
ambition as he could well be, with a
thoroughly good heart, and a desire to
be happy and comfortable rather than
At last the day came when we were
to give our Selly into the hands of an
other. It was a lovely day In Junc,and
I hope it was a foreshadowing of what
their lives should be.
It seemed to mo too solemn au occa
sion for theatrical show or nourish.
They were married In tho church, of
course. A ceremony that is bound by
God a ordinance; vows that reach even
beyond the grave, should only bo given
under the roof of God'snotisc.
There was no bridesmaids or groom
men. .Nelly, dressed In a simple white
dres3 and with a few orange flowers in
her .hair, walked up.tfie,alsle on Tom's
arm. and there, in the solemn quietness
or the church, with the voice of God's
serv&nt.soundlng In their hearts they
were made one.
I kew I had not lost my daughter.
I knew that her love was mine that day
to-morrow, forever :" just as It was when
she sat on my knee, but still, perhaps I
am growing childish,-. I could not keep
back the tears.
"Sot crying, Dick!" said Kitty; and
her own voice was not too steady.
"Yes," said I, "but I don't know why,
I am certain we have not lost our child.
"That we haven't;' said Kitty; "she
will always be our child..
Tfiera was -no party after the ceremo
ny. Tom's people and our family made
a good number to gather around the
table,, and we .lingered , long over our
dinner as if we' dreaded ito part. But
the hour of parting' came; Tom and
Sellv were ablfcred to hurrv to catch
the train that, was to slrry them, to .a
quiet place by-the seaside, -where they
wero to spend not all, please God but
the first two weeks of the honeymoon
Such pleasant letters as came to us
from them both in those days ! Searly
every day Grace brought me one and
called all the family around that they
might listen to what Selly said.
When they came' home they found
Tom's father and myself had not been
idle. We" had bought them a handsome
cosy little cottage, and furnished cn
ough so that they could go into it at
I met them at the depot and as we
had arranged beforehand, drove them
to their own house.
j "Wejmust get ut here a moment," I
said, and they both; stepped out of, the
carriage at once, though with somewhat
".Will we go In?" Tom asked.
"lesfor'a moment," and we walked
to the door, Kitty .and our children
and Tom's people were standing in the
hall to receive them, and such shoutlnsr
auiT. kissing and explaining never
I took Tom and Selly one side when
they had greeted everyone; my heart
was too full for a speech before them all
'This Is your house children," I said
and it is for you to aaake it a home.
pray God that you may find In it the
peace and happiness you desire, and
that your children may be all as great
a joy to you as you have been to us."
Kitty placed Selly at the head of the
table. "It is your table and your house,"
said Kitty, "And your place is hero al
ways:" and. we sat 'down to the first
meal in our children's house.
That is the house on your left as you
go down the road. There Is Selly now
playing with her little boy in the yard.
That' Is your Dick, and he and I are
capital friends and companions. And
we have not lost our daughter; no, she
Is our Selly to-day as she always was,
and I think she will be our daughter
just the same when we are gathered!
around the throne of God.
Alexander Hamilton and Aaron
The first public event that I remem
ber,1 when about six years of age, was
one of affliction and sorrow. It was
the funeral procession of that brilliant
but unfortunate man, General Alexan
der' Hamilton, 'Who fell in a duel, in
1804, by the hand of Aaron Burr. As
the history of that sad event is well
known, it will not be necessary for me
to repeat it. There is scarce a doubt
that Colonel Burrj'although occupying
the high and honorable office of Vice
President of the .United States, deliber
ately and attentively practiced the use
of the pistol until, as It was said, he
could hit the head of a nail at many pa
ces distant, with the secret purpose of
taking General Hamilton's life, and this
more especially, when he had gbod.rca-
son' to believe I will not say ,hls ad
versary, but the man who was his mark
intended to do no harm, and who-
when the preliminaries were all fixed
and the handkerchief was, dropped' as
a signal to fire, turned the muzzle of his
weapen upward' 'and fired into the air,

The Temperance Movement
Strikes the Cross Roads—
What Effect it Had Upon
What Effect it Had Upon Bascom.
CpxFEDBrrXBoADs (Wieh is in the
State uv Kentucky), Feb. 23, 1874.
When I opened my Sorthem papers
and red uv the prayln movement by the
wimmin uv Ohio and Injiana, I sed to
myself, "The Cross-Roads is bound to
ketch it." There ain't no trouble agoin
but wat It lites onto to the Cross-Eoads,
Misforchoon has marked the Cross-
Boads for Its own.
And last Monday Bascom got a postal
card on wlch It wuz statid that on the
Friday followln a delegashen uv ladies
from Sew Boston, a manufaktrin vil
lage started by a lot ur Yankees over
about ten miles from here, where they
don't sell no spirits, wood visit the
Cross-Boads and try the efficacy uv
prayer onto Bascom to see ef they cood
not convert him to stop his sole-des-
troyln', demoralyzln bizness. Ez Bas
com red the postal card (or rather ez I
red it for him), he was a plcktcr to look
upon. His knees knockt together and
his face turned a ghastly pale, and his
hand trembled so that It wuz with diffi
culty that he cood raise a glass uv likker
to his' lips.
"My sole-destroyin bisncss !" said he ;
"my bizness sole-dcstroyin ! Good
Heavens, wat next!"
My time is about op, I guess," re
marked Deekin Pogram. "I have seen
strange things in my life, but when I
am not allowed to take my regler drinks
it Is' time I wuz agoin hence."
"The idee," sed Issaker Gavitt, "that

At this pint Issaker's wife came in,
and wontid' Issaker to o and get some
rice, and then go home and split some
wood. Issakerwantid'toknow watshe

woman bustld into' tears, and sed she
couldn't split wood, with no shoes and
three inches of snow on the ground,
and that there wuzn't a thing in the
house for the sick baby to eat, and ef
Issaker wood spend half the time at
work that he did loafin at Bascom's, and
half the money on his' children that he
did for likker, and
Issaker didn't allow her to finish her
onreasonable harangue. He took her
by the shoulder and shoved her out the
door, and swore that he didn't know
how It wuz in Ohio and Injeany, but
he'd be d d it in Kentucky woman
shoodent keep In her proper spear. He
wuzn't agoin to allow no woman to
dictate to him wat he shood do with bis
time or his money, nuthcr.
Captain HcPelter remarked that ef
his wife ever jined In sich a demonstra
shun she'd wish sho hadn't. His .wife
tried to stop him from taking another

shood adopt vigorous measures. He'd
never surrender never.
Friday come and Bascom wuz ready
for em. Evry wun uvour persuasion
in the Corners" hed ordered his wife to
keep strikly in doors, and on no akkount
to' vencher out door In the day. Bas
com .asked us all to stay with him and
see him thro it. To wlch we all agreed
Tbem ez wuz married and kept house,
went home to fix up thcr doors and nail
boards over the broken glass uv the
winders, so that ther wimmin shoodn't

Well, at 11 o'clock a pcrccssiou uv
women did make their-appearance at
the lower end uv the village, and they
moved up slowly to'ards Bascom's. G.
W. wuz ez pale ez a sheet.
"Wat shel I do?" asked he.
"G. W.," sed I, "there Is but one thing
yoo kin do.. Bally your friends about

croosade.- The regular lrequenters of
the place are iri tend and are not here.
Bring cm here! Bring: em here to

"This, G. W., will fetch em in, and ez
long ez the likker is free they will stay
In, and give yoo their' moral support.
Shel I write the placard?"
G. W. wavered. He cast one glance
at his' kegs, and sighed hesitatingly. I
cast one glance at them kegs, and wuz
determined that so good an apportooni-
ty'shood not be lost.
"Ha!" sed I, "the foe! they come!
they come! To hesitate now is to be
lost. The head uv the invadin column
hcz turned the corner. Shal I write?"
"Yes!" sed Bascom, bustin Into
teers: "write. Efthcy shet me up I'm
rooined, and ef you have free drinks I'm
bustid. -But I'd ruthcr take the free
drinks part of it."
"Certainly," sed Issaker Gavitt, sooth
ingly ; "free drinks, by all means. Af
ter all, Bascom, it amounts to the same
thing. It's free drinks anyhow, for
you hcv to charge cm tous,don'tyoo?"
And so I writ the placard and histed
up at the door. The result was mnjl
cal. In less than ten minits the slad
noozc bad reached every house in the
village, and there wuz gathered togeth
er In Bascom's slch a solid mass uv Ilb-erty-lovln
men ez had never been seen
together at the Cross Roads.
Bascom appointed two uv us to draw
likker for the thirsty crowd, and then
we throwd open doors, calkllatln to
greet em with slch cheers cz would ef-
fectooally silence all the slngin and
prayln they could do.
The, wimmin approached. Wo cood
see cm. They wuz all closely vailed.
Ez they approached tho door I directed
the likker to be served out faster, so cz
to get tho boys tuned up to the right
pitch. But alas! They didn't stop!
They didn't stop to sing or pray or
nuthln. They simply passed by pulling
their vails closer to their faces and
snlckerin. I looked through the vail
uv ono uv cm and saw whiskers.
But with rare presence of mind I said
"Draw moro llkkcr!"I shouted,"thcy
Will be back In a moment."
By the time this last drink wnz down
Bascom wuz so far gone that he didn't
know nuthln. He got lunatic, and,
spriugin from the counter, insisted on
everybody's not only drinking, but that
every man uv us shood fill a bottle, and
take with us.
It Is onnecessary to state what follerd'
The revelry waxed furious, and by
night the bodies uv the fallen were pil
ed on top uv each other four deep.
Evry drop of likker in the house wuz
gone, for what wuzn't drank hed bin
allowed to waste, for men drawd It who
wuz too tite to shet the afucets. Bas

Passin Pollock's an hour after,
heerd him and Bigler a laffln vocifer

But, thank Heaven, the joke isn't on

The Woman's Movement.
There is one feature in the woman's
war against whisky, now .waged so
widely, which compares most favorably
with the characteristics of some prece
ding' movements, and which eommends
it to general favor. We refer to the ap
parent absence of the spirit of; censor!-
ousness and bitter denunciation. The
words of- the women, whatever may be
thought of their methods, are words of
lore,- and are prompted by a loving
spirit. They evince no disposition to
harm any one, or to Interfere with any
legitimate business. They are bent on
rescuing the victims of a diseased appe
tite and a degrading vice their bus-
bands and fathers, their sons and broth
ersfrom the pit into which they have
fallen, or to-eave them from becoming
such victims and falling into such deg
radation. They are impelled by natural
and Christian pity, such as dwells in
woman's heart, and their demonstra
tions are in harmony with this senti
ment. It is this which gives them their
influence over dealers of all classes,most
of whom hare been accustomed to re
gard their business as ti branch of legit
imate commerce, for whose incidental
evils they were not responsible. These
evils, which are fearful, are made prom
inent, and a closer moral estimate of
them is awakened. The strong moral
convictions of those, whose hearts are
full of kindness, are never to be lightly
regarded, and the exhibition of them Is
often irresistible. Cleveland Herald.
An English writer asserts that "hon
ey proper is not found in flowers; that
the sweet juice found there is collected
by bees and afterward converted by
them Into honey proper marketable
and presentable." He claims that the
sweet juice gathered by bees and depos
ed during the day In the comb is re-
swallowed ere it is manufactured into
honey; that the jnlce is net honey
when gathered more than cream is but
ter before it is churned. He adds:
"For the sake of others who may wish
to sec for themselves, let me suggest a
very simple experiment. Some warm
summer morning put a strong swarm
Into a hive full or half full of empty
combs say at 7 o'clock a. m. Weigh
hive and bees before the latter begin to
work. This swarm will probably collect
five pounds of crude honey the same day
before 7 o'clock r. m. Remove the bees
into another hive and extract the hon
ey, it will be lounu cruue still, ana as
unlike honey as cream is unlike butter.
So process or amount of evaporation
will remove its crudencss. It will
mould: It will become sour. I have
never seen It crystallize like proper
"If this is not conclusive evidence,
put another swarm into another hive
with empty combs. It may collect the
same weight of crudo "honey in the
same space of time; but let Jt remain
in the hive, andjf tho bees be prevented
from gathering more by rain or artifi
cial means, for thirty-six hours, all the
crudo stuff will be changed into honey
proper, and stowed away on the out
side of the combs. When bees come
home from the fields they empty their
sacs in the first empty sells they can
find, and go back to the field, for more;

find tho clear, limpid but crude fluid

A Green Countryman.
Years ago, into a wholesale grocery
store in Boston walked a tall, muscular
looking, raw-boned man, evidently a
fresh comer from some back town In
Maine of Sew Hampshire. Accosting
the first person he met, who happened
to be the merchant himself, he asked
"You don't want to hire a man In
your store, do you?"
"Well, said the merchant, I don't
know; what can you do?"
"Do!" said the man, "I rather guess
I can turn my hand to almost anything.
Why do you want done?"
"Well, if I was to hire a man, It would
be one that could lift well a strong,
wiry fellow; one for instance, that
could shoulder a sack of coffee like that
yonder, and carry it across the store
and never lay it down."
"There, now, captin" said our coun
tryman, "that's just me. What will
you give a man that can suit you?''
"I tell you," said the merchant, "If
you will shoulder that sack of coffee,
and carry it across the store twice and
neverlay it down, I will hire you for a
year at $100 per month."
"Done," said the stranger; and by
tills time every clerk In the store had
gathered around and were waiting to
join lu' the laugh against the man, who,
walking to the sack, threw it across his
shoulder with perfect case, as It was not
extremely heavy, and walking with It
twice across the store, went quietly to a.
large hook which was fastened to the
wall, and hanging the saek upon It,
turned to the merchant and said :
"There, now; It may hang there till
Doomsday; I shan't never lay it down.
What shall I go about, mister? Just
give mc plenty to do and $100 a month,
and It's all right."

was out of the other side of their

yet satisfied, kept to his agreement, and

The Traveller's Mood.
When once one has fairly started on a
journey and ha3 but to go and go, by tho
impetus received, it Is surprising what
entertainment one finds In very small
tilings. The traveller'shumor falls up
on us, and surely it Is not the unwisest
the heart knows. I don't envy people,
at any rate, who have outlived or out
worn the simple satisfaction of the
sense of being settled to go somewhere,
with bag and umbrella. If we are set
tled on the top of a coach, and the
"somewhere" contains an element of
the new and strange, the case Is at Its
best. In this matter wise people are
content to become children again. We
don't turn about on our knees to look

given as a simple and easy method de

that they may be easily counted. Then
take a hoep or frame, and make a bot

as to resemble a sieve. Place this upon

easily tested, which maybe of consider

Financial Aspect of the Temperance
The financial aspect of the temper
ance movement is not the least impor
tant of its phases. It is shown that in
eleven districts in Ohio the revenues
hare fallen off more than $30,000 per
month, at least SO per cent, of the
revenue from these districts being
from the manufacture of malt and dis
tilled liquors. Reports from all the
leading cities show an enormous'falllng
off In the wholesale liquor trade. The
Enquirer says that the trade of Cincin
nati alone is Oamaged to the extent of
$20,000 a day. All this will be hailed
with joy by the friends of temperance.
The money not put into liquor is being
used for other and better purposes, so
that the owners of large stocks of liquor
are the only immediate sufferers. If
those who are trying f scare the tem
perance women by attempting to show
that the movement entails serious loss
to business, would balance the books by
placing to the credit of the women the
amount of money saved to the drinkers
and to their wives and children by the
closing of the saloons, they might; be
surprised at the state of the balance
sheet. The further increase of the rev
enue deficiencies by the breaking up of
the liquor traffic is not a cause for
alarm. There is no burden the people
can so well afford to bear as an increase
of taxation for such a reason.
Last of the Swamp Angels.
One by one the band of Robeson coun

Angels of Carolina, organized with the
war of the rebellion, have dwindled
down until there is not one left of the
entire formidable gang. Two years ago
this daring band of outlaws and mur
derers ruled the Dismal Swamp region
of Scuffletown, S. O, and consisted of
five persons. These were Henry Berry
Lowcry, the leader; "Boss" Strong,
Andrew Lowery, Steve Lowery and
Tom Lowcry. From the visits of news
paper correspondents to tho terrorized
neighborhood, one of whom penetra
ted the swamp and met the bandits,
themselves, the thrilling story bfthvir
long fight with the peculiar civilization
around them was given to the world.
Large rewards have long been offered
for their bodies, dead or alive. Asa
proof of their desperation it may be
noted that Henry Berry Lowery was
killed by tho bursting of a shot-gun ;
"Boss" Strong was shot In his cabin
through a "cathole" by a man named
McLaughlin. Seither of the bodies
was recovered. Tom Lowery was shot
about fifteen months ago by a Colonel
