A Bad Fix.
Detroit Free Press.
It was one day in the early
history of Detroit that . John,
ll,m - As there were no scales
to weign mm ne went nis way
unweighed. (Patent.)
' When John Snow had crawl-
ed ovel' tm' Peer logs, rolled
j 'm the mud and eaten johnny
cake until he wasfo rteen years
old, his mother died. If his fa
ther had been like some men he
would have put a weed on his
hat, engaged a cheap house
keeper and continued business
at the same old stand without
interruption. But. he wasn't
like some men. lie married a
cousin who had two or three
children big enough to fight
John, and so the boy's aunt, be
came his mother and his father
became his uncle.
In due time John Snow had a
sister. STo, he hadn't either.
It was a girl, but he didn't know
whether she was a step-sister or
a cousin or a half-sister. Some
said that the girl would be his
grandmother if she lived long
enough, and he was almost dis
couraged. In about two years
more a boy was born, and John
figured and figured until he
made out that he was a hall-uncle
to his step-brother and that
his step-brother was his own
While John was off on a fish
ing excursion to Lake Superior
one of his half-brothers married
and John came home to find an
other baby.. He v-'anted to
know what relation he was to
this youngster, and he marked
the fence all over with chalk
and could not reach any satis
factory conclusion. It rather
seemed to him that he was a
quarter-brother or a step-uncle,
but there was the fact staring
him in the face that the child's
step-uncle was also its grand
father, and it might be its own
cousin for all he could make it
For two or three years Join:
Snow moped about among the
Indians and fur-buyers, and
then in a fit of desperation mar
ried one of hi:t aunt-step-mother's
daughters and became
brother-in-law to his cousin-hall-brother,
son-in-law to his
aunt step-mother, and the same
to his father-step-uncle. He
might have lived on ami been
happy if the public had lei him
alone, but -school-teachers went
on ntwi miufo -nnf thfit ho xq
his uncle's aunt and his step- j
mother's .mndfil her. and that :
he was no relation to himself,
and he pined away and died.

! "Take mo on your bosom, mamma!''
(Jh. how weak my darling's words,
But to me they held the music
Of a thousand singing-birds.
Close I held her to my bosom,
Strained againstmy aching breast,
But the mother arms ab jut her
Could not soothe her into rest.
".sing," sho said. There was a ditty
To an old time Jaelody
That 1 u-icd to .sing to hush her
Into slumber, on my knse.
And I sung this simple ditty
To its old, familiar air,
While my tears were falling, falling
Like a raia upon her hair;
"Hush, my child, lie still and slumber,
Holy anc s gaar.i thy bed.
Heavenly ties nags, without number,
Cenily falling on thy head."'
C.-.me a light, so soft, so tender,
from the hhudows in the west.
And it t uched my d.irli.ig's eyelids
W.th the blesse 1 balm of re-t.
Oh, that li.ht so s!r.in,e, so r.diant !
i have often thought since the;if
That .in anrjr'J touched my darling
And so cnurnieii away her jain.
For she si pt the last sweet slumber
That a weary mortal knows,
And her fac; jrrew strange and quiet
In a new ami swet repose!
Ah. slie sleiit to wake, at morning.
On the calm, eternal shore.
To that new and strand's existence,
Wrapped in rest forevet more.
Married in the Snow.
A writer tells a story of a

in arotibing the parson, w ho had
been snugly tucked in his warm

good man reluctantly raised the
window and asked "who was
there?" With chattering teeth
the would-be bridegroom an
nounced his errand. iS"ot even
the piety of the parson preven
ted his uttering a few impatient
growls at this unseasonable in
terrupt ion of his dreams. He
did not tarry to put on the wed
ding or any other garment, but
in thundering tones ordered the
couple to Maud well off in the
moonlight and to clasp hands.
Then he demanded their names.

A Haven of UQrest.
From the Philadelphia Tress.
Bishop Gilbert Haven, of the

done a very indiscreet and very
indefensible thing. He has de-
monstrated most emphatically ing out to 'the pices a lot of

his best ability, himself, his can- try ''Egyptian Coin." It was
didate, and his church.
With singular maladroitness,
at the very moment that the
irresident is sending to Con
gress a grave and well digested
message warning the country
of the dangers which threaten
it from ecch si.isiical ambition
and aggression, Bishop Haven,
himself an ecclesiastic, and one
of vast power and inllr.ence, if
his church organization amounts
to anything, in a re'igious con
vention called together profess
edly for religious purposes, was
engaged in. making a political
nomination to the first ollice in
the Nation.
Had Cardinal McCIoskoy in
an Episcopal Convention of hi
Church nominated Judge Kel
ly or Governor Carroll for the
Presidency the uproar all over
the laud would have been tre
mendous That an outcry from
East to West is not hear! over
Bishop Haven's politico-religious
venture is simply because
his action does not carrv the
weight that. Mr. MeCloskev's
would have done, and is not,
therefore, felt to be practically
as dangerous Its impropriety
and indecorousr.ess, however,
we hnve no doubt will be re

at a hotel one forenoon,-ajid af

down to the barber's s! op to
get shaved. The shop wa hu ,
tne oaroer iiavmg gona oft to
take his after-dinner nap. Then
the York man walked back to
his landlord and said: "With
your magnificent country, w hich
is the garden of the world, vou
ought to be the most prosper
ous people oh earth. That you
are not is due to the fact that
you don't attend-to business.
You don't look for coppers.
Here's your barber now, shut up
an ! gone where he might have
earned ten cents by bhaving me.
Now he don't get it, for I'm
going to shave myself, and sae
my cents. I have a .razor in
my valise, and if you will show
me a mirror I will shave my
self." The landlord said flic
barber was a shiftless cuss, who,
like most Western mtn,cou!dn't
compare with Pcnnsyhumians
for attention to business, and
patience in scooping in the
dimes; but he hoped they would
all improve in time, and thn he
showed our friend into a room
where he found a gocd sized
mirror, and shaved himself
Soon after he joined his com
panion and congratulated him
self on the success he had Lad
in saving ten cents and teach
ing Westernmen financiering.
After tea the pair paid their
bills, and went to the depot to
itake the train. On their wuv
the man who hadn't shaved
said: "Pretty reasonable honso
that; only a dollar for dinner"

said the other; "n hy, I paid .1
dollar and a half 1' and a little
further explanation showed that
he ha i been charged fill' per

So back he went, and demanded
of ihe landlord an explanation,
and got it in these words: "The
