SAh! what melloW memories are awakened by the sound of that name. My Uncle Jhta was one of thie beat e ~j ever knew. He tihd hrtdbselt Laptist proclivittes, was .as honest as tt(e day; and a rus-up man in every sense ti the word. But a goed )oeld:'dye, he ; toeessed the singular peculiarity of owlnng t!lutgs that were small, lie had the smnali-st ax I ever saw, his hogs were guintws, he grew little cob corn and he owned Penny. Away back, before thea woods were burtetd, that !ille ol.d .geatlyfaced ipule was foaled. Her .mother was a Jenny and' her lather-well, he wAi dme sort-of nonsdeserlpt qufrdruped, and Penny was no bigger ithb aspound oa.iotp after a:btrd tayea swashe.te. Uncie.John had a 1tle IwoRpliteeleq cart just the sas;z for tenny, and when I.e hitched up'aid motanted PQnby, ttel mas and the mule and the cart Ilooked tke they were made for each other. Oun,a few. acres of poor, pimply pine lud that good,old la!myagr rt h that little old mule made a'igbd holt fi'v ing and reared a large famlt* of Chtt. dren, and the days of his life pasesd as -quietly and a oeakeniae it thte great ;busy world wgrnas ;ar reyyed freco him as the twinkling stars oi the mid night sky from the drifting clouds of autumn. One time they had a wedding at an other uncle'sýheueans-tthis event was to be Very,. largely attended. Mother put on my little velvet coat and my new copperas anid obecked breeohes, with the galuses, and my: oppe wtoed shboe.and my cap that Uncle Jimmvy, gave ue:; and we started to the wed. ding. She rode bid John and I rode behind. The way was long and lonely and my short legs got awful tired as we jogged along the lonely road among the whis pering pines. Past the cypress ponds and across the Big Branch with its winee-colored waters flowing over the sunny munds and on into the big.road we traveled. I was not up in wedding matters, and I philosophiz-d and speculated a good deal. Old Johmnpushed along with his ears flopping and his eyes half closed, and nobody would bave dreamed that the old scoundrel cultivated a single evil thiought. As we came to a short turn in the road with a thicket Just ahead, sud denly old John fetched a wild snort and wheeling around he kicked up his he-els and away he went, leaving mother among the gall berry bushes by the roadside and I unfortunate tel. low, landed square on my nose, strikl ing the hardest place in that hard road, and the world became illuminated by more aars than Galileo ever dreamed or in his wildest Imaginings. And the cause of all the trouble was soon apparent. There just in front of us, stood, old Penopy with Uncle John astraddle of her, and the little eld rip was so allfired ugly that she scared old John out of his senses. Uncle John was by our side in a twinkling, and mother was laughing while I wept and wiped my crushed and bleeding nose. I think Penny actuslly smiled as she eyed old John, who was standing all atremble with fright, the old villain being too lazy to run far. Uncle John caught him for us, and sat us up again, but the wedding and all its prospective pleasures had no charms for me with my nose in asling, and all because of old Penny. John evidently thought she was the ghost of some departed mule, for he would not pais her and Uncle John had to lead her out in the woods fill we got past. Long afterward-after the war closed and my good old uncle came home to resume the quiet and even tenor of his uneventful life--he found that Penny was growing stiff in the Joints and his farm work required a younger and stronger animal. But his heart's best affections were ce-tered on the tttile old brindled mule that had grown gray in his ser vice'. He purchased a young mare and broke her to the plow and the cart, but she had frisky ways that did not set well with the quiet old man who was himself growing aged and worn with toil. He kept Penny albthough it was fre quently suggested that he swap her. Finally the little old mule gave out, and one morning when the old farmer went out to feed the stock Penny was unable to get up. Broadside she lay under the shed with her dimming eyes turned pathet. ically towards the form of hebar kind master, who spoke to her as tenderly as II she had been a child instead of a poor littl, dumb brute. The young mare was prancing and kicking up around the lot and whinny. ing with pure wantoaness, but the said tman paid no attention to her gam I)ol0. ''t,- mist Ialhered ti- his eytes, lie was thikinLkg of days long passed when he came there to thtt wildernees of unbroken forest with his drrk-eyed bride, a few head of wild cattle and a fIew guinea hogs and Penny. His miud reverted to all the jys and sor. rowe that had lighted and shadowed Shis lie. IIel remnembered the grievous timne when he reverently closed those dark eyes and turned' to pnclfy his week old baby who was never to know a mother's love, All these and many more incidents and eplaodes of a life of toil passed through the old man's eyes ýs he watched the dying throes of the pqor little companion' bf thl 'labtrs, and` as the last 'low sigh ordepaeting life es raped the quiSerlog nostrils, tuegeod old man turqe4 aWy pad lehnit}g against the tence he wept a i x tears of sorrow over the close o' the eatthiyr atieer 'of the little mtule:i ' And, we, boys felt 'tlte OQa Of the family had.poased away, and - we f.lt sad when we went by the enppty stall and looked in and missed the familiar form of old Penn '.--Jfonlqonery lit.

Thie llorrors of lCgaretto Imokilg, Dr. 1Eapqnond, in the New York Yoido, a s : As to cigarette smoking, proply ractieed and with due re ElM tbsotlderation, and provided also atlprttwtolhaeo be used, I emanot see .beltit Is tmoen IJurious than clgatr or psps. But no speedier method for reqdering existence piinful js more emeaiobus" than to smoke clgarettps and to Inhale the ftames into the lungs. iy, tbihq prtetie a very large ibsorb. isgOurg lce lsep4~aeed t4 the action of tbe nicotine and other ppiapnous pro. iiets whlich are evolved when tobacdo. Is burned. Ab a consequence, thei system Is mbre thorbughty subjected to their influence and- disease more cer.. tainly, produced. The action of the brain is Impaired thereby, the ability to think add, in fact, all mental con Senutation are weakened. Neuralgia, espeelally about the face, throat disea-' see, nasal catarrah, serious afections of the eyes, dyspepela, and, above all, interruptioba in the normal action of the heart are atibdng the consequences resuttltg from the Inordinate use of tobacco, and especlaily from the iu-, balation of cigarette sm.yke, This Is not mere theory, for I have seen many cases of all these disorders in the course of my ptactlee as a phytleiaoland have known them to be directly traceable to the cause, mentioned. lSaws for the repreeglon of cigarette smloktng by young persons are difficult, if not Im possible, of enforcement. It can be prevented only through the proper education of parents and guardians and the children themselves. Investigation shows that the cigar ettes sold lin this country are, as a rule, vilely adulterated, and with substances even more injurious than tobacco. Something might be.doe, perhaps, by the passage of laws preventing the manufacture and salu of cigarettes. Surely if the law cain interfere to stop the production of oleomargarine on the ground of its being prejudicial to the health of the public, it might properly be invoked on the saute plea for the manufacture of cigarette-. Some states do not allow alcohol in any formn to be produced or sold within their limits, and yet I um inclined to believe that more injury can be inflicted on the human race by the excessive use of tobacco by young persons than by im moderate liquor-drinking. The latter would probably kill more quickly and before the subject would have an op. portunity of procreating the species, but the former would not only destroy the health and vitality of those who might descend from him. In the city of Washington I saw a few days ago a wretched looking child, scarcely 5 years old, smoking a cfgaretto and blowing the smoke from his nostrils. His pale, pinched face was twitching convulsively, his little shoulders were bent, and his whole appearance was that of an old man. Should he live to become the father of a family what kind of children is he likely to have ? The cruel war is over "fur cure." James Itedpath, the biographer of John Brown-and the life-long frliinl of Wendell Phillips, Challes Sumner and o(tlihe famous champions of freedom, told me yesterday that he recently paid a visit to Jefferson I).vis at his home in Mississippi. Ile was a guest of Mr. Isvls for four days and enjoyed his visit immensely. lie describes the old president of theo Confederate States as "-the most refined and charm. ing old gentleman whom he ever met among the public men of Armerica as the very opposite of the character he is supposed to h:o in the North -as refined in his manners and speeb as Italph Waldo Emerson, or L'rngfel. low the poet, or Wendll lbPhillip, who were the most perfect types of nigh breeding and noble nature I ever met in the north. Mr. Davis Is over 80 years old now, but is in good heal:h and in full mental vigor, giving every prom iee of living to see the twentleth cen tury. Using the phase in its truw, and not its cant sense," continuedl the ,ld abolitionist, "I can cosclertiously die scribe Beauvoir house as an idoul home. Mr. Davies is the Ulist type of southern manhood and Mrs. ivtels is quite as notable a petrsonage--a great woman, both in c'haract,,r olld int'l leer."
