To the MININO JoUKNAf. : The effort on foot to establish early j closing is one of vital import!tree to the salesman—one that for sometime has agitated the mind t of both mer chant and clfik. It is an effort that ought to have succeeded long since. For reasons various, however, all at tempts in this direction have failed. And now, possibly for the last time, wo have brought tin's quee tion up | from the failures of the past.. It re mains in a ctrfain sense with the pub lic whether or not it shall prove a success. No one undervalues the fcrco public opinion gives to any question that may come before the people, nor do wo overrate its power when we write that it is omnipotent in deciding a question of this charac- Ur, and, provided it comes a.s a unit and endorses cur effort a* wise and good, wo t.ro confident of success. Now Mr. Miner, ivsr. Laborer, have you ever thought, as tho face of your watch indicated the hour of 5, and you have laid nettle the implements of lukr, ami I ave journeyed to min gle again in the home circle—have van ever | ,u: J lor a moment to think of. rhe salesman who works from •> in the morning until band 10 in the night 7 Have you ever paused amid your joy at being homo again, free from tho harassing burden of work to ccmmieserate the condition of tho clerk who lab ia fifteen and sixteen hours per day from week to week and month to month, until they are lost ia years? Free, because the sun has hid bin splendors again be hind tho western hills.

And, remem bering that this is to bo decisive effort in this matter, we make our appeal to yen personally, my minor friend ; to you, my laboring friend ; to you, my preacher friend ; to you, young lady, middle-aged and old. In the mime tf humanity we come ; in fhe name of our common heavenly father we approach you I Will you not come and hy your voice and sup pert sot the glad sea! of cuccc.-s upon this effort to lift ourselves above our present condition? That which prompts this appeal to the Loiter part of your nature, ray friend, ia not a selfish motive as a few casual thoughts iijion your pait will sustain. Also the pernicious effect of lute boms upon the moral and physical man will be made manifest as you think more deeply upon the subject. From our business we retire el once to sleep; hnneo the last thought is ol labor and our first conciottsness in the morning is of labor. All through the day, without any interruption whatever, it is work—when not physical then mental. Tho sun through with his j daily course retires from tho sky and j we behold only his reflection as per j chance he eleopoth. But the sales j man’s work ceases not with the de parture of day but far into the shad owy hours of the night he continues (o labor, for what ? “Tho bread and meat that porisheth.” Not a moment lo enjoy the society of the home cir cle; in fact, “at homo a stranger.” ■ Not o ;e in which to satisfy tho possi i hie innate craving or aspiration to i know something cnlsido and beyond our own sphere, corapo led to sacrifice the desire lo occasionally mingle in some social gathering. No time to be alone in which we may uninterrupt edly express our gratitude und ap preciation of our duily blessings- What a sad state of affairs I Is not lire pulsation of your manly heart in harmony with the vital question now at issue? Will you not lend your aid, your voice, your it I! nonce, my brother ; iu order to consummate this effort, of early closing? Where shall wo look to-day for a parallel case iu tho great element of labor? Surely not at homo, and, wo are assured, net j abroad. Our minors have felt tho ! pernicious effect of "all work and no play," and to-day aro making a praiseworthy and noble effort against this very same imposition. We know bow yon Lave struggled, and the i mighty effort you have made in the past in order to reduce your hours of lalor. Now, as then, wo wish yon , God-speed and that success imtv “perch upon your baniieia." In re tina we ask for yettr sympathy, your support and voice in order to syste matize the salesmsn’s labor. Thu I majority of our merchants aro perfect ly willing to close, and wo believe ; that those who nre a little unwilling at present will yield when they find tlmt this movement iu in favor with the people. How much belter wo could pet form out daily duties if we wete privileged to look forward to the evening as our own 1 Could wo nut work harder and Lo more effective in winning trade to our respective Louses had we the consciousness that i when the evening shadows began to i fall wo would be ftee? Let us hope f that ail our merchants and the people . will son the wisdom ot this movement _ j and kindly acquiesce therein. : I Clekk. .1/ 1 SC EL L. /. \ VJJ U,S. * i 1,1 “There arc two sides to everything, > su’d lecturer. “I repeat it, there I are two | tired looking little man stood tip In ; the front seat lossy : “Well, ifyott’ve . no otjecliua 1 ill step out and see it j Ihero ate two sides lo tills hall.

There is a low ruined ooltage on St. Anthony street, Now Orleans, where the moss glows over tho rooting, and the rickety doors hang by broken binges. Dust and ago have bid the floor from sight, and the decaying walls are damp and mouldy. Only one room ia inhabitable, and Hint shelters an old woman, gray and de crepit. Sitting on a low stool sho murrains a lullaby—an old-time ssug. Ago Las deprived her of reason, but the sorrow of a tragedy enncled is yat fresh at her heart. Thirty years ago she was beautiful. The olivo cheeks were radiant and the glorious eyes flashed the triumphs of a belle. Tall and slender, exquisitely formed, with a rich Andalusian type of beau ty, it is no wonder that she reigned regally over many hearts. At that time no society in the wot id wus more brilliant than ours. Wealth and hospitality wont hand-in-hand, and the most, refined and elegant in the land did homage to tho beauty of New Orleans, To be star regnant of such society involved more than phy sical loveliness, and Blanco Gastello had all tho graces that intellect bestows. None know then that sho was mar ried. A young clerk of her father’s had gained her heart and hand. In this cottage her son was horn—hero, whore aho stole away from the be wilderments of fashion, sho enjoyed tho scciety of the man whose love she had ventured to win. Wedding him in secret, she hud conliived to deceive her parents and friends. There were few things lie father would not. have pardoned in his child, but not this, lie was wont to boast that kingly blooif was in bis veins ; that h h ancestry had tunglil under tho staudiiid ol Arragon. How could he accept a plebian con-in law? Months went by and, the mask was persevered in. But a jealous rival dis. overed tho deception at last. And ono night the young husband fell dead from a shot tired by a concealed assassin. Tho bullet that pierced his heart destroyed the life ol tho child ho hold in his arms. Who did it? Mr. K and myself had the working up of tho case. Tho city was wild over the tragedy. The unhappy wife, mad with grief, had not hesi tated to avow her marriage. It pro duced an excitement iu society rarely, it ever, seen before. But who was the murderer ? This was the question up on every tongue. It was for us to discover. Months went hy in incessant search. Hero and there a link iu tho chain of I evidence was picked up until at last we wore able to lay cur hands upon tho man. But, if tho deed in itself ai.is horrifying, the culprit, when known, occasioned a thrill of indig nant sytu) uthy for the unfortunate wife felt by all. Before arresting bun, however, we deemed it advisable to consult the lady. For this p ttr po.ie Mr. K— and myself visited her. Bho was still at the cottage, never having loft it since the night of the murder. When shown into the room my heart but tied sick as I contem pt.ited the ravages a tow short months had made. The form was bowed and bent—the beauty which had teen the toast of brilliant society had fled. Be fore ns stood a lady whom grief had all bill wrecked. “Madam, we have come lo consult you in reference to the murder of your , h stand." "You have feu ltd him, then?" she esgsrly inquired. “Yes.” | “And he is—" I could not help tho sad look that came into my (lies. How could I in : diet (in a heart so worn and weary an ; additional sorrow. . | “You do not tell mo,” she sail, with an intonation ol voice so exquisit- ly . sad that it went to my heart. “I mu l tell y u, madam, deeply as I grieve to do so, but you must pre pare yourself lor a great shock," 1 rejoined. "What other calamity can befall me 7” ‘ Perhaps a greater on* than you i have yet encountered. 1 fear yru will esteem it sttelt.” “Speak, who is it 7” "Your lather." My father?—oh, no, not 1.0 ! say it vas not he I” and her arms ittetched out to me so appealingly, the white Iq s und anguished eyes were so be- seeching, that 1 felt I would rather die than face such an ordeal again. \ "My father?” I “Ye, madam; the chain of circum stantial evidence leaves no room for # doubt. Ho did tho deed. It Boomed as if this sorrow Lad ] broken her heart. Bite stood tip bo . fore me, every Unco of color lied front her face, with unutterable anguish in } look and gesture. “Leave him alone with God”’ and i j. fell fainting to the flror. From that hour lo this I have never seen her. Bite holds no intercourse with any one. All else save a faith ful servant is banished from the hous'. From Iter 1 learn what I re peat to you. Her reason has no doubt lied, and sho sits by the tireless I hearth nursing her sorrow alone with j tho memories that the past recall. ’ STRAKOE WEDDING FEES. Wo knew a clergyman who once re | coived from a wealthy groomsman, a I 1 iripht penny, inclosed in a dozen [■ wrappers. Ho always persisted in be lieving I bat the intentions was to give , him a twenty dollar gold piece. Wo were not so credulous. A clergyman, who was formerly lo- | oated in Hartford, Conn., but now in : New York, married not long ago a couple, who at once started for Kn rope. Tho bridegroom was a man of ’ wealth, and before ho presented him self before the bridal altar he placed a ono hundred dollar greenback in hia vest pocket to give tho pi rron for tho marriage foe, and did pay it lo ' him as ho supposed. Whilo crossing the ocean he discovered, great ly to his astonishment, the bill in the pock et where ho placed it, and could no- | count for its presence there only on tho theory that ho must have hid an- j oilier bill of a different denomination which ha had donated lo tho clergy man by mistake. On getting back to 1 this country he determined to solve the mystery, and waited upon the reverend gentleman, who did not recognize him, and inquired if on a certain date he did not marry a cor -1 tain couple. The clergyman remem bered the occasion peifsctly. “I know I am about lo ask an imperti nent question," said tho visitor; “but i 1 should like to bo inlormed what fee i you received for performing tho cere motty ? ’ The clergyman recogniz.d the man an tho ono ho had married, | and said that ho would of course i rratify hint, since ho was so anxious j to know. "I received,” ho went or. | to is.iy, “a very small quantity of fine- 1 cut chewing tobacco, folded in a very small piece *of paper." That was enough. Tho only thing remaining f to be done was to apologize fer the curious blunder, laugh hartily, and t make tho one hundred dollar deposit I good. An old undo onco brought his nioco to a reotorv, on a cold, rainy day, to bo mairied and then, after . tho c remony was over, fumbled , about fora tuo-dollar bill, and, not being able to find it, said, as bo haml ded tho parson a five dollar hill : i* “Take the change out of that for a two dollar job. It. s kind o wet and u cold like to-day, and I guess two dob . bits will bo about tie right thing.” H O! couse the amount of a marriage j fee is a delicate question, which ~ clergymen are generally too modest to determine, much more to ask; but j we uevi r heard it so neatly disposed of ns this: A Quaker mairied a wt man of the 1 the Caureh of Englan I. Alter tlie ceremony, the vicar asked lor h:s feo, ■ which ho raid v.an a crown. The 0 Qn kcr, astonished at the demand, j said if he wcttld show him any ti xt in the Script tiro which proved his fees wi re a crown, bo would give it to him 1 him. Upon which the vUar directly ' turned to the 12ih chapter of Prov -11 orbs, and 4th verse, where it. said : "A virtuous woman is a crown to tier 11 husband." • v Food for Yi.uno and Odd.—Food and me licine for young und old, pre- H pared without fermentation, I rum ‘ Canadian Barioy, Malt, Hops, Qui -1 nine, Bark, etc. Malt Bitters uro warranted more nourishing, strength- I etiing, vtlalizir.g and purifying, hy | reason of their richness in hone and II muscle producing material than all x o;her lorn a cl malt or medicine, j whdo tree Irom the objections urged against malt liquors. t j A Peerless Perfume.—The ro -1 freshing aroma ot Florcstoa Cologne, e and its lasting fragrance make it a ■ peerless toilet perlume. Pearls of Thought.—The night is long that never finds a day, Genius finds ike own road, and car ries its own lamp. To live without a purpose is to lead a restless, unhappy life. Did you over know a fool who was aware that ho was a fool ? As every shred of gold is precious, so ia every minute of time. , | Should we condemn ourselves to j j ignorance to ('reserve hope ? It is something fine to bo good ; Imt j it is fat better to bo good for some- j Using. The sweetest thing on earth in a little child when it lias learned lo know and love. People do not like to acknowledge that they ate poor except to bock : agents. Gold can buy nearly everything iu this world xcept that which a j man wants most—viz: happiness. There aro two sorts of fools about advicn—thoje that give it and those that won't take it. According to tho security you offer to her, Fortune makes her loans easy or ruinous. The friendship cf a man is often a i support; that of a women is always a j consolation. The surest way to make a dupe is to let your viutira suppose that you aro bis. It is the distinctive mark of genius that it lights its own fire. A wise man is not inquisitive about tilings impertinent. Jealott ly is the homage that inte riorly pays to mot it. Poverty is in want of much; but avarice of everything, i He who lives without folly is not so wise as ho thinks. A 100 lis one who never lias made un experiment. Some Choice Books of Wit and Humor. —Thu book buying public will certainly bo delighted, even if the old-lino publishers aredisgt sled, with tho work The Useful Knowledge Pub* lishing Company, of New York, is do ing. They aro just issuing a number of works of (bo choicest grade of wit and hiipjor. One, “Studies in S.anzas, Tints for the Times, Ballads, and Broadsides," in by Orpheus O.Ksrr, than, whom no American humorous writer has won worthier fame. For keen wit, scathing satire, deep laid, mysterious plot, purity and nobility of thought, and rollicking, healthy, hearty fun, he is quite without a rival in his varied brilliant accomplishments. The millions of the American people who have iu times prist laughed at Ids inimitable productions will give hie now look most hourly welcome.

Tho dc fondant entered the store in a furious j passion, held out tbo summons in one hand, clutched a long knife in the other hand und said : “Williams, have you rued mo?" Williams knew that an immediate "Yes" would make him sure of a stab. “Let me get my spectacles so that I can read the pa per," he said. He went behind tho counter and came hack, not with his glasses, but with an axe across Ids shoulder. "Yes," he said, "I ht.vo sued you." “All right," replied tho desperado: "I guess I'll pay the bill." A vie; RCUfi growth c( the hair is ■ often promoted by using Parker's Hair Balsam.

Arthur whh a struggling local politician in New York of what ie known there as tho Custom Houre variety, he numbered among his friemh the mate of u vessel, named I Kennedy, whoso influence Arthur had often occasion to use when oir- I oumstancee required the votes of j the Hosting j opulation of tho har j bor front. j Just shout that, lime Arthur made i an unsuccessful ellort to obtain some minor municipal appointment. The mate condoled with hie political friend upon hie disappointment, and soon after sailed for Washington with a cargo of hardware. While as cendiug tho Potomac a block and tackle fell upon tho mate'e head, indenting bis skull in such a manner that the man became practically an idiot, and was placed in tho Dis trict of Columbia Insane Asylum. A short lime ago the famous Bur geon, Dr. Gross, of Philadelphia, vis ited the asylum, examined the case and straightway performed an opera tion invented by himself, which re milted m the almost immediate re turn of tho patients reason, tho inter vening fourteen years being of course a complete blank. A day or two after hia recovery, the mate walked out, and began strol ling through (ho Capitol building. Almost tho first person he encoun tered was President Arthur, who was just leaving the Executive chamber in the Senate wing. “Why, how aro you, Kennedy J’’ said the first citi/.eu, affably extending his Laud. “Glad to aeo you." "Howdy, cid man,” said the sail or. “flow's things? Got a job yet ?" “Well I believe I have," said the Executive, with a smile, "A pretty big job, too. You must come np to tho While House and see me." “To the White House ?“ repeated the amii/.ed mariner. "Yes, just ask for my private secretary, and he'll show yon right in," and the President walked on. “Poor old Ohot! —clean gone, clean gone," mused the male. “Actually believes himself to be President of the United Stales. Smart man once, too. That just shows you, gentle men,' he continued, turning to the bystanders, “that just shows you what politics and disappointment will bring iv man to. Poor old Obeli" “I S'all S'eep Wiv Him To nkiut."—Sometimes I believe the lit tic ones say the host things after uM. I know a family in Detroit who are heart-broken and sad this Satur day night. There wore three last Saturday, hut to-day only two are left. The tic which lound them more closely than that which the clergyman drew has lately been loos ened, and tho light of their counte nances went out with the red winter sun only tho other night. The father is a railroad man, whoso duties call j him away from homo nearly three ] fourths of the time. It was his hal it | whenever ho was about to start for | homo to telegraph his wife apprising her of tho fact. lu those telegraphs ho never failed to mention the names of tho little four-year old, and the dis patches usually lari us follows : “Tell Arthur 1 shall sleep with him to night." The baby hoy was very proud of these telegrams, which his mother would read over to him, and he considered the "leledrall" a gieat institution. The other night, when (he fever had done its work and the mother was sobbing oat her anguish llio littlo ono turned calmly in his bed and said : “Don’t ky mamma; I (fall s'eep wiv Dod, 'oo know.
