The world Is all dark or the world Is all bright, Just as we choose to make it; Our burden Is heavy, our burden Is light, Just as we happen to take it; Ami people who grumble and people who groan At the worid and its every proposal, Would gumble an 1 groan If the world were their own, With ihe sun, ntooa and stars at disposal. It Is all very well to have beaut" and health, But it ugly and sick we must bear It; It is all very well to havo oceans of wealth, But we find, if we must, we cau spare it; But healthy and wealthy, or sickly and poor, We are wise lo be "careless and happy," Aud gracefully try all our ills to endure, Though we try till we're " hairless and cappy." Not all can be noble, not all can be great; But our Uvea with Ged's love we can leaven. And whether of high or lowly estate 'Tls the same to our Father in heaven. The world may seem dark or the world may seem light, As we cling to the old, old story; And cheerfully work, with our lamps burn ing bright, Till we enter the portals of glory. LIMBERGER CHEESE. A True Ntory ef a Salinas Ball, [From the San Jose Mercury.] "Not any in mine, if you please," said Jim Boggs to our reporter, as they were about to indulge in a friendly glass of lager beer at Alex. Muller's, upon whose well-spread lunch table Jim discovered a plate of fragrant Liniberger; "I rayther soured on cheese, leastwise on Limberger, at the ball at Salinas. I never told you about it, did I?" said Jim. " Well, it was when they had mud and fog at Salinas, you bet. The mud was so thin and the fog was so thick that you couldn't tell which was which. Old Peters had just built his hall, and the boys thought it about the square thing to start off with a dance—a right nifty one; and when the Salinas boys let themselves out sunthin' had to come. You can bet your bowels on that and staud a right smart chance of gettin' a spare set of in'ards. It bothered 'em some to git their boots in shape, 'cause iv them days if a feller walked on his hands his boots would be still three feet under that doby mud. So they finally concluded to bring their boots to the old hall alongside the ball-room, * and have Pete, the boot-black, shine 'em up, and then when they got ready the fel lers could get 'em there, and into the dance without ary speck. So eleven of 'em brought their boots and sent for old Pete and told him to throw hisself and not mind expenses; and when he had got done to put in sunthin' so they could git 'em on with out being pounded ou with a maul. And then the boys went and had a so ciable game of pitch-seven-up for the drinks. Pete blacked the boots clean up to tops and when he got through with 'em and stood 'em in a row you could see twenty-two Petes—it looked like the house was full of darkies —and then he fixed 'em so the boys could git 'em on quite easy and quit. After Pete had gone, along cum that Iwfii *vn -. a.™ T~.,..~ tt. t„„w - look at them boots and then scratched his head like he was trying to think of sumthin' and he started for Johnson's "I'd like a little of that old Limber ger of yours," says Sam to the clerk. And Sam told him attain. "Not much—you won't like it," said the clerk; "but you can help yourself; it's out In the back yard." Sam started for the back yard, but the clerk yelled to him to hold ou. "You ain't fixed to go after that cheese," said the clerk. So he gave him an onion to hold iv his mouth and put a clothes-pin on his nose and told him to keep to the wind ward of the cheese and not come back through the store. It was a heavy job, but Sam got away with the cheese and got back to them boots; and he jest mashed up that Limberger and put a right smart chunk into each of them boots, and chen he went and spilt kerosene and oologne on the floor and burnt up two r three old shirts, and he got up a smudge, you would have thought a 'pothecary shop was on fire, and then Sam jest lit out. The boys came in for their boots at about ten o'clock. They were purty well set up, and they naterally put it up that the things that Sam had strung around was what was the mat ter, and then got into them boots and out of the door as quick as they could. Mighty nifty they looked in the ball-room, aud the boys that come in from the ranches had to take a back seat while them shiny fellers waltzed in. It weren't long before their pardners began to look wild like, and their noses got sot up like old women's when they go pokin' round the house in the night time, askin' everybody if they don't smell cotton burning; and then the fellers would quit and go outside and stand on one foot and twist their necks oft" trying to look at their heels, and ask the other fellers if they saw anything on their boots be sides blacking; and then desired to know who some fellers was; and then they'd go back and dance again; and then the rest of the chaps went out and looked at their boots and cussed and eat cloves, and jest said what they'd like to do, and they tried to go on with the dance, but it got too hot and the gals wouldn't dance, but sat by the winders and said it was awful; and one or two faicted and the chaps got white around the gills and the ball jest busted. Then every feller made remarks and insiniations about some other chap, and there was five or six tights; and when they got home they went snuftin' around the same way and finally concluded that it was in the atmosphere; aid then when they pulled off those boots It was in the at mosphere so it would well nigh knock a bull down; and eleven pair of boots went out of eleven winders and eleven of the maddest fellers you ever see lay awake all night thinking what they'd do in the . lornirg with a shot-gun. Next day the/ found out who got that Limberge.', but Sam Jones had gone to Monterey. He came back in about two weiks and packed a shot gun all the wh.le. Whenever he came across one of tbem cheese fellers he'd make him throw up his hands till he explained it tc him. "I were at the ball and I've had no use for Limbtrger since," said Jim. Anybody might know that Bailey was back in Danbury. Alluding to ice on the walks, he says: "We can understand why the druggists do not clear their fronts. People must live. But we don't understand the other dealers." A Moment of Horror. For twenty-three years old Jake Williard has cultivated the soil in Baldwin county, and drawn therefrom a support for himsulf and wife. He is childless. Not long ago Jake left the bouse in search of a cow. His route lay through an old worn-out patch of clay land, about six acres in extent, in the comer of which was a well 25 or 30 feet deep that at some time, probably, had furnished the inmates of a dilapidated house near by with water. In passing this spot, an ill wind drifted Jake's " tile " from bis head, and maliciously wafted it to the edge of the old well and in it tum bled. Now Jake had always practiced the virtue of economy, and he immedi ately set about recovering the lost hat. He ran to the well and, finding it dry at the bottom, he uncoiled the rope which he had brought for the purpose of capturing the truant cow, and after several attempts to catch the hat with a noose, he concluded to save time by going down Into the well himself. To accomplish this, he made fast one end of the rope to a fence hard by, and was soon on his way down into the well. • It is a fact, of which Jake was no less obvious than the reader hereof, that Ned Wells was in the dilapidated building aforesaid, antl that an old blind horse, with a bell on his neck, who had been turned out to die, was lazily grazing within a short distance of the well. The devil himself or some other wicked spirit, put it into Ned's crani um to have a little fun; so he quietly slipped up to the horse, unbuckled the strap, and approached with slow and measured "ting-a-ling" to the edge of the well. "Dang the old blind horse!" said Jake; "he's a comin' this way sure, and got no more sense than to fall in. Whoa, Ball!" But the continued approach of the "ting-a-ling" told as plainly as words that old Ball wouldn't " whoa." Be sides, Jake was at the bottom, rest ing before trying to " shin it" up the rope. "Great Jerusalem!" said he; "the old cuss will be a-top o' me before J. can say Jack Robinson! Whoa! dangyou, whoa!" Just then Ned drew up to the edge of the well and with his foot kicked a little dirt into it. "Oh, Lord!" exclaimed Jake, falling on his knees at the bottom of the well; "I'm gone now —Whoa!— Now I la* me down to sleep—Whoa! Ball!—I pray the Lord my soul to —Whoa! now!—Oh, Lord! have mercy on me!" Ned could bold la no longer, and fearful that Jake might suffer from his frignt, he revealed himself. Probably Ned didn't make tracks with his heels toward that well. May be Jake wasn't up to the top of it in order. May be not; I don't know. But Ido know that if Juke Muds out who sent you this, it will be the last squib you'll get from me. The man who won't take a paper because he can borrow one, has in vented a machine with which he can cook his dinner by the smoke of his neighbor's chimney. "What on earth made you get so drunk, and why, oh why, do you come to me in this dreadful state?" "Be cause, my darling, all the other places are shut up." Isaac says breakfast cakes are not very deer, but the transformation of ~— —» 1..,t Litu, '' ±y y to «lo« ..-1. ~,t^ when first mixed, and cooking makes dem buck-wheats." A rural paper expressed the opinion that the colleges nave already gone crazy over the coming regatta, and got back the answer that they were still in possession of their Faculties. "What makes you look so glum, Tom?" "Oh, I had to endure a sad trial to my feelings." "What on earth was it?" "Why, I had to tie on a pretty girl's bonnet with her mother looking."
