As brave as a lion, a favorite with his men, he is a real za tion of one of Lever's heroes. And more than all, he is one that n ver tasted liquor. Who, of all --ho fought for U3 through that a ful struggle, can show a better re- ord than General Nelson A. Miles? Confession of a Drunkard. Some years since, there wns a p .mphlet publisht-d in England, en titled "The Confession of a Dj un kard." This is part of his confes bion : "Of my condilion there is no b ope that it should ever change ; ilie waters have gone over me; but out of the black depths, could Ibebx.rd, I would cry out to all those vho nave set a foot in the reii!ons fl-nrl "Could the vouth to whom trip flavor of his first wine is delicious as the opening scenes of life, or the entering inon some newlv-disf-nvpr- ed paradise, look into my desolation, ana oe maae to understand what a dreary thing it is when a man thall feel himself going down n precij ice, wim open eyes ana passive will ; to see xjis aestrnction and have nopow er to stop it ; to nereeivo nil f.-.nd ncss emptied out of Lim, and yet not bo able to forget a time when it was otherwise ; to bear about the pneous spectae'e of his own naif. ruin ; could he see my fevered t-ye, fevered with last niplits rlp.hnnc.1i. and feverish in looking for this nignis repetition of the folly ; could he feel the body of death out of which I cry hourly, with feebler ..nd feebler outcrv. to lio dnlivni-pil it wero enough to make him dash the sparkling beverage to the earth in all the pride of its mantliDg temptation." "I Shall be a King." The late Duke of Hamilton had sons. The eldest fell into consuiiip tion when a boy, which ended in his death. Two ministers went to eee him at the family seat near Glasgow, where bo lay. After prayer, the youth took his Bible from under his pillow, and turned to 2 Tim., 4 : 7 "I have fought the good fight, I have finished my course, I have k?pt the faith ; henceforth there is laid up lor me a a crotrn of righteousness ; and added, "this, sirs, is all my com fort !" When his death approach -3d, he called his younger brother to ois bed, and spoke to him with great af fection. He ended with tiieso re markable words : "And now, Doug las, in a little linio yon will be a Duke, but I shall le a Ji'iugf" "I simply presume to say that I am pleading for protection. Tctal abstinence is necessary for individ uals, being necessary fur the nnl'on in every reepect. We have protect ed everything else in this country but that 6acred little spot calied 'home.' "The young men are shot down by the legalized bullets which are fired at them. It is poor, cold con solation to tho mother's heart when she sees her son go down, to say, 'Well, he is helping to piy the rev enue of the country.' We are build ing up our government in blood to sustain the liquor traffic, which is stealing the boys right out of their mothers'&rmB."--Extraetfrin Speech of Mrs. Yoaman's, at Lake Side Camp JileetiiKj. "We've Left iho Barrel," and "Hurrah for the Pump!" are tho ti ties of two popular English trnirer tnce BODgs. The man who to-day goes to a sa loon and spends his time in playing cards and billiards and drinking, must not claim to intelligent people that he is not an enemy to the best interests of society ; that he is not doing wrong instead of right ; that he is cot making somebody's heart ache, and that be is not injuring his reputation. The day has pass ed when men can be saloon loafers and be counted as good citizens. Over twenty miles of blue ribbon consumed and 523,000 signatures to the total abstinence pledge, are the results which John W. Drew, of Concord, N. II., reports after eight months work in Iowa. Farm and Household. Weather Signs. Many of our farmer friends have cer tain signs by which they claim that they can foretell the character of the coming winter. Among them are the character of the corn husks, thin ones indicating a mild winter and thick ones the reverse. A plentiful supply of acorns and other nuts indicating a hard winter and a short crop a light, open one. An unusual number of Fpiders during the fall are taken as harbingers of a mild winter,and their absence the reverse. On the other hand an immense supply of caterpillars indicate a hard and severe winter. When squirrels are idle and listless it betokens a mild winter, but much business on their hands indicates a hard winter. If the breastbone of a goose is w hite, we w ill have a mild w inter, but if it is dark, look out for deep snows and cold weath er. If the ground-hog goes into winter quarters early it is to be considered as a token ol a severe winter; and we nngiit extend the list much further. In look ing over the many country papers which pass through our hands w e have kept a record of these weather prognosticators, and give as a result from the reports made to said pspers that in Greene coun ty they wilt have a mud winter, because the husks are very thin ; in Washington the winter is to be mild, because spiders are plenty ; near by in Allegheny, they are to have it very severe, because the breastbone of a goose was very dark ; in Lancaster it will be severe, because the Fquirrels fire busy, but in the adjoining county of York, it will be mild, because the woodchucks have already gone into winter quarters ; in Delaware county, the husks are thick, and a hard winter mav be looked for, but in Bucks it will be light, because forest nuts are scarce ; in Salem county, N. J., caterpillars are plenty and indicate a hard w inter ; but across the river in Isew Castle county, Del., thev may expect a very mild win ter from the absence of nuts. And yet any one of these can furnish positive proof that his theory has been proven correct many times. 'The trouble usual ly is that persons observe the cases in which these or other signs prove correct, but fail to note the cases in which it fails. Stop the Leaks. Wherever they may be found and On every farm they are numerous, if not watchfully guarded against. Is the corn yet in the held? If so, here is a leak of magnitnde. Squirrels, rats and perhaps two legged vermin are pegging away at it and the waste is all the more inixr tant because it is continuous. A rat and burglar proof crib is the only secure store-house. Are your tools nicely cleaned and laid away under cover or are they lying loosely around, covered with mud and rust ? " This is a leak which should be stopped forthwith, for not only dollars and cents are involved but bodily strength also. Get everything under cover, well cleaned and ready for future u.-e. Is vour stock provided with comforta ble shelter from cold winds ? If not, stop this enormous leak without loss of time, making them as comfortable as possible. A few days exposure during the severe weather of winter will leak awav more than all the gains you have made for a year. Have yon settled with your merchant for your advances for the last year, or are "you still adding to your obligations? If so, you should make all possible haste and any required sacrilice to stop this leak. Your ship will surely founder, leaving you helpless and destitute, unless you attend to this important matter without a moment's delay. Are vou providing for the education of your children and endeavoring to keep pace with the march of improvement yourself? Do you read, do you reflect? If you are neglecting these important duties, you mav rest assured that this leak, if hone other, will prove your ruin. Education is the corner stone of success in agricultural and aU other pursuits. Take Time to Rest. Most men and women must keep in the traces, and keep pulling the year round. All the more, therefore, "it is their duty to take things easier as the longer days come on. Take longer rest at noon. Jf ut on less steam when you are at work. Snatch a Sunday now and then from the middle of the week. You can't? You can. People find, time to be sick and to die. These can just as easilv find time to rest and keep well. All does not depend on finishing that dress or fencing that field;. or putting up so much fruit, or catching so many customers. Better that the children should wear old clothes than that their mothers should be laid aside bv a fever. Better that the corn crop be a little light er than that there should be no one to harvest it. Put up the store shutters earlier at night; prepare plainer meals in the kitchen. Take a noonday nap yourself, and give your employes a chance to go fishing of an afternoon, now and then. That only is duty which the Lord lays upon us, and he is not so hard a master as we do sometimes suppose. A Cheap Smoke-House. Di?r a narrow pit from twelve to eigh teen inches deep, throwing the earth all out on one side. From near the bottom of the pit dig a trench of sufficient length to hold one or two joints of stove pipe, at such an angle as will bring the end away from the pit to the surface of the ground. Over the end of this pipe set a common flour barrel or large cask, as may be needed, and, having removed boih heads, bank uparound it with loose dirt, so that no Finoke can escajie at the bottom. Putting a cover on the sticks will leave space enough for draught to let the smoke pass freely. Build asmoke fire of corn-cobs, damp hard wood or sawdust in the pit, and you will have a cheap, safe and efficient 6inoke house with very little trouble. About the House. Bad cooking sjmils the good food. Eat licorice to sweeten the breath. Apply common baking soda to burns. There is no dignity in work half done. Bottom heat is not good to raise bread. Cold corn beef is best for making hash. Eat what your appetite craves if you can get it. Do not entertain visitors with your own domestic troubles. Husbands must not expect their wives to make good, white bread from jioor flour. The more quietly and peaceably we pet on the better the better for our neighbors. In nine cases out often the wisest poliey is, if a man cheats vou, emit dealing with him ; if he is abusive, quit his company ; if lie slanders you take care to live so that nobody will believe him ; no matter who he is, or how he misuses you, the wisest way is to let hint alone; for there is nothing better than this cool, calm, quiet way of dealing with the wrong we meet with. "A i-pnerons accumulation of iimo- rance," is the mild way in which a Koch ester pa;er characterizes the author of a recent article in a cotemorary. The phrase is curt and expressive, and will bear repetition. Vegetable ivory, now so extensively employed in the manufacture of but tons, is made from hard, fine grained nut, grown on the Isthmus of Darien. These nuts, which pre aliout the size of a hen's egg, are sawed into several pieces from each of which different sized but tons are turned. The nuts cost 100 per ton. GENERAL ITEMS.

Sixty thousand tons of sea weed are used every year by a Glasgow, Scotland, chemical works, in the manufacture of iodine. Twenty tons of alabaster have been imported from Italy by a Boston organ firm for use in the manufacture of keys for pianos and organs. The Catholic bishops in the Tinted States are stated to have held $9,000,000 property in 1850, which is estimated to have increased now to $110,000,000. The superintendent of a wood pulp factory claims that in six hours after cut ting down a tree the paper made from the pulp can be ready for use. Farm animals should not be allowed within the reach of tobacco leaves. A Kentucky farmer recently lost three valuable cows, which ate some of the weed in their hay.

A recent wedding at Williamsport, Pa., had a gloom cast over it by the discov ery that, through 6ome unaccountable mistake, the bridesmaid had been mar ried instead of the intended bride. A High Church Vicar advertises in an English paper for a curate, to whom he will pay $1250 a week. By way of in ducement it is added that the curate can find eligible lodgings for $lo.75 a week.

Did It ever occur to you what the meaning of "No cards," and "No cake," appended to a marriage announcement means? It is simply the exclamation of the editor thrown in, in a spiteful way, to show that he was not remembered. If your local paper doesn't exactly Euit you don t go to running it down and abusing the editor, but go to work and help him him make it better by furnish ing your local itemizer or the editor-in-chief with such items of interest as hap pen to come under your observation. The Wayne County Journal recently printed an article headed "Talk About Stoves." There has been a good deal of talk about stoves in Kome this fall, but most of it has been of a confidential na ture and not calculated for public print. Our folks mix their stove talk up too much witli Calvinism. Home benttnel. A North Hfll lady w rites to this office inquiring if "paragraphers ever go to heaven?"

MAUD MAULER. Maud Muller worked at raking hay, And clearing her forty ccnta a day. Her clothes were coarse, bnt her health was Ire, And ao alie worked in the aweet sunshine. Sinirinir as plad as a blrtt in Mar "Barbara Allen" the livelong day. She often glanced at the far-off town. And wondered if eggs were up or down. And the sweet song died of a strange disease, Leaving a phantom Ituite Of cheese. And an appetite and a nameless ache For soda water and ginger cake. The Judge rode slowly Into view Stopped his horse In the shade, and threw His ttne-eut onr, while the blusLlng Maud Marvelled much at the kind he "chawed.'

And she gave it him with a sun-browned hand, "Thanks," said the Judge. In accents bland UA thousand thanks! forasweeter draught From a lairer Land" but there he laughed. Ard theswpet girt stood in the sun Hint day. And raked the judge Instead ot the hay. Where Death Came Pleasantly. Yesterday there was a touch of spring in the air. One might almost say a whisper of Summer, so clear was the sky, so beautiful the sunshine. While the city was waking up, and the rumble grew louder and louder, there passed down the river a boat. In this sat a man who plied his oars as if he were afraid that his craft would rock and cause a sound. He passed by the idle, deserted vessels, by the tugs that lay like so many dead things along the docks, and under the bridges until he reached an open shore, and there he stopped. The man bent over in the boat, and when he raised himself up he had something in his arms. With it he stepped out on the land and walked to and fro, with the something still in his arms. He sat down with it, and seemed to listen to the water, that came up like a great monster that was wounded and wanted to be pitied. You may have noticed this in people and in animals. After a time thus passed the man looked earnestly tit the something and seemed to be startled, and quickened his pace to the boat, lay down his load not his burden and pulled quickly back to the city. He bent over whatever he had again and again, and as ofien as he did he only quickened his htlior at the oars. The boat touched the dock of the first slip, and the report er hailed the mysterious man. He rounded to, and as the bxtt stopped the man picked up his freight and sat down. He was asked what he had and what he had been doing. He was a little rough in his appearance, as if he hadn't been accustomed to the good things of life. And he was a little slow to express him self: "You see, she's the only one left. She's bin mighty puny ever since the riot. Wre kinder went away and left her List Summer and went on the strike, and she got a back set 'cause she was down when we went back, with nothing on her and nothin' in the cupboard. It's bin many a night I've watched with her up and down, and then when they used to take the kids out on the tug last Sum mer one took her out along with some as was better dressed maybe than she was, but none of 'em was any peerter when the trip was over. Since tiiey qrJt she's been gitting more and more c like, and this mornin' she came and laic, her head on me here and said if she could only go out in the lake agin like she did, and I forgot I had to go to the shoj). I took her and put her in the boat, and I was thinkin how when she got outside she'd kinder spry up agin. It was risky, I reckon, but l couldn't refuse her anything. I couldn't and when she was out thar just now she kinder raised up and said she heard some children singin' on the sea. She was thinkin' of the kids last Summer when they were singin' on the pier. I 'spose she heard some singin' but ydft can see how it took." He uncovered a paleface that seemed too cold for life. And still it looked as if it was asleep, with a string of beads around its neck, attached to which was a rudely carved cross. If it hadn't been for the hovel out in the limits, and its poverty, and its weeping woman who came out to meet the man and the child as the boat stop ped again, one might have thought that this death was a beautiful one, and that the child did hear a sweet song on tho sea as it rose and fell. Maybe she did hear it, for the other world isn't so far away but a sick child can see it and hear the music which is said to be forever swelling up under flic shadow of the throne. Chicago Times. A Country Editor's Way. The sayings and doings of the country editor are not so notable now a days as in the old times when rural papers were rarely conducted on a cash basis, and the plaints of the worried tellow on the tri pod, who accepted cordwood or dried pumpkins or almost anything eatable or saleable for subscriptions, were fre quent and painful and free. Men iu des perate straits are afflicted with strange whimsies, and the expression of those disgusted literary lights were often strik ingly original and exceedingly grotesque. Now, however, things are different, and rare'y does the countiy- editor excel in his old specialty. A recent case over in Kentucky, where an editor "spoke right out," is, therefore, exceptionably notable. He was walking recently upon thestreet, enjoying the balmy spring atmosphere, and "wondering whetlver, in the year to come, his paper would be established upon a paying basis, when lie became aware of a sudden giggling and tittering behind him. He turned and saw the source of the merriment. Two well dressed ladies, prominent in the town, were in his rear, and laughing heartily. Much to the poor editor's surprise, their attention seemed especially directed to Borne peculiarity about his exterior. Much twisting and writhing, while grind ing out mental productions seated in a hard bottomed chair, had told upon the frail texture of Mb pantaloons, and the' cloth had finally yielded. The editor's wife good, thrifty woman had repaired the damage as best she could; but,be cause new cloth matches poorly with the old,evidences of her handiwork were all too plainly visible. Hence the cruel laughter of the ladies behind the coun try etlitor. The poor man fled to his office in shame. Then his manhood as serted itself, and he sat down upon the patch and wrote something for the paper. His next issue contained this paragraph: " As we walked past a couple of ladies on the street the other day, one of them, so we are informed, observed a large patch od our pants, and made merry over the discovery. Well, we do wear old clothes, it is true; but we might af ford to treat ourselves to better ones, if the husband of the woman we refer to would come to the office and pay us $18, which he has been owing for a long time for subscribtion and job work." "Doubtless," said a logical old English clergyman, "God might have made a better berry than the strawberry, but doubtless God never did." Doubtless some country editor might make a point more neatlv, but, doubtless, none ever did. Iftha"t little bill of $18 was not settled up within a week after the ap pearance of his paper then there is no vir tue in pungency. And the occurrence is a recent and a literal one. St. Louis Ik-publicaiL. The French Marriage Law. The Boston Pol ot Thursday savs : "A few days since a lady called at the May or's office and requested that the mar riage intentions of two parties residing in Paris should be posted in the office. Not understanding exactly the exigen cies of the case, the Mayor sent to the French Consul for information on the subject, The latter drew up two odd looking documents in the French lan guage and sent them to the Mayor, with a full explanation of the case. It ap pears that Pierre Reintjet, a Frenchman, residing in Boston, has a minor son, Henri, who resides in Paris. The hitter desires to marry Hortense, a minor daughter of Laurent Garot, who lives with her parents in Paris. As both par ties are minors, the civil marriage laws of France require that the marriage in tention shall be published for two weeks at the residences of the parents of both, and therefore the intention of Henri must be published in Boston. This is probably the first case where the per mission of the Mayor of Boston had been held necessary for the marriage of a Frenchman to a French woman, both of whom reside in Paris. The two docu ments referred to were a notice of the intention, which is now posted in a con snicuous place in the Mayor's office, and a certificate, to be signed by the Myyor i and sealed with the city seal, stating j that the intention has been published i for two weeks, and that no objection has I been made," . I The Cause of the 'Splosion. "I would invite vou to my house, brud dcr Jackson," said Deacon Johnson, as he emerged from church last Sunday evening, "but I dunno as we'll get any supper dis night, de cook stobe am so drett'iilly out ob repair." "What's de matter wid de stobe?" "Why, you see cold wedder am eom in' on, and wood's gettin' skese an' high, an' I've 'strut ted de folks to be berry eknocomieal in de usin' ob it, AVe'se bin buyin' in small lots, an' las' night, beiir out ob fuel, I sent one ob my boys ober to a neighbor's to borrow a few sticks. De man or his family had gone to bed owiu' to de lateness ob de hour, an' dat boy, who would 'spise to do a un honest transaction, wrote out his note for de value ob de wood, an' droppin' it in a prominent place in de woodshed, shouldered an armful an' brought it home." "Jess so." "Well a fire was kindled, de tea-kettle put on, de ole woman she is gittin' de supper. All ob a sudden, pull' went de stobe, zooiv ; ke swish, kuslush went something, sn' as I tumbled ober I suw de ole wouu n makin' for de roof wid de tea kettle a i' de stobe plates follow in' her, while de boys an' de gals was as brack wid smut as'de ace ob spades. De stobe's goose was cooked for a fact." "What was de cause oh de 'splosion?" "I'm strongly 'clined to believe dat dar was powder in dat wood, an' dat de powder was done put in darby dat white man to ketch some thievin' darkies wat nebber buys no wood, an' bressed ef I don't think dat man 'spects me, kase he couldn't find dat note, an' won't make no 'pologies." "Dat am an outrage." "For a fact, an' de children's supper was spiled, too." A Russian Dance. They have a peculiar kind of dance, conducted on the greens of country vil lages in Russia. The dancers stand apart, a knot of young men here, a knot of maidens there, each sex by itself, and silent as a crowd of mutes. A piper breaks into a tune, a youth pulls off his cap, and challengs his girl with a wave and a bow. If the girl is willing she waves her handkerchief in token of as sent, the youth advances, takes the cor ner of her handkerchief in his hand, and leads his lady round and round. No word is spoken and no laugh is heard. Stiff with cards and rich with braids, the girl moves heavily by herself, going round and round, never allowing her partner to touch her hand. The pipes go droning on for hours in the same sad key and measure; and the prize of merit in this "circling," as this dance is called, is given by the spectators to the lassie who, in all that summer revelry, has never spoken and never smiled. Cowhide Horseshoes. In England they are adopting a horse shoe made of cowhide, and known astht Yatesshoe. It is composed of three thick nesses of cowhide compressed intoa stee mould, and then subjected to a chemical preparation. It is claimed for it that it lasts longer and weighs only one-fourth as much as the common iron shoe, that it will never cause the hoof to split, nor have the least injurious influence on the foot. It requires no calks; even on asphalt the horse never slips. The shoe is so elastic that the horse's step is light er and surer. It adheres so closely to the foot that neither dust nor water can pen etrate between the shoe and hoof. In Japan they formerly shod their horses with straw, and the European or Radical party is distinguished from the Conser vatives by the iron shoes of their horses. A Good Voice. "Madam, you know that you ys sess one of the best voices in the world ?" said a saucy fellow to a woman, one clay. "Indeed, do you think so?" replied she, with a flush of pride at the compli ment. "I do, most certainly," continued the rascal ; "for if you hadn't, it would have been worn out long ago." For the first time in her life that woman hadu't a yord to say. Ax indignant Englishman writes to the London Week, to protest against the erection of a statue to John Stuart Mill on the Thames Embankment or any where else. He desires to know "why a statue to Mr. Mill is to be put up in this important thoroughfare? What service did Jlr. JSlill render to the country which is to he thus commemorated? If every man who lias endeavored to out rage the religious sentiments of his countrymen and advocated atheism in its most debased form is to be thus hon ored, why limit the selection to a man whose very autobiography is fatal to nny claims that he might otherwise have had to ordiuary respect?" To which the New York World says: "This angry' pat riot ought to console himselt with the re flection that if the statue of Mr. Mill is confided to an average British sculptor of the period it will serve rather as a warning than as an inspiration to those who gaze upon it, and, like our own graven image of Mr. Seward in Madison square, will lead the casual passenger to regard it as the handiwork of men who loathed the original, and devised it in the spirit of those waxen statues of con tumacious heretics which the Inquisition used to carry in procession and burn with pomp in the Autos da Fe of Portu gal and Spain. She livesat Ottawa, Canada, and this is how she managed it : "She thought it would be just as w e'l to commence housekeeping right away, and begin the New Year with training up a husband in the way he should go ; but her father thought dilTereni.y. ko she invited all her friends to the wedding at a certain church at a given hour. Of course there was a big crowd, including the angry father, who was prepared to forbid the bans with a shot gun. Meanwhile the young lady and her adored AV'illiam went to another church and were quietly mar ried, and as they left the sacred edifice she icmarked that where there was a vViIl there was a vtv." Probably no portion of the human anatomy is so delicate, sensitive, and at the same time so capricious in its action as the human ear. We have known a woman w ho could stand up in the garret, looking out of a dormer w indow, and hear her husband kifS the hired girl in the cellar, eight rooms and two flights of stairs away, and the next night that very same woman would take her baby to church and hold it on her lap while it screamed and howled fifteen minutes of the sermon into oblivion, and be astonished when she was told ;hat the dear child had been crying.

Here is a warning to men too mean to advertise. One of this description want ed to sell some land, and so he put a written notice in one ot the hotels the other day. A man who was enquiring tor a small larni was lelerred to the writ ten notice, when he replied : "I can't buy land at a fair price of any man who does his advertising in this way. He'd steal t he fence, the pump-handle and Ihe barn-doors before he d give up posses sion. M -.

I., has 220 street lamps, scattered over nine miles of street. One man attends to the entire lighting in fifteen minutes. It is done by elec tricity, at a saving of $10 per lamp per year, it is reported. '' Piety," remarked an Arkansas preacher to his congregation the other j tlay, "does not consist in noise. The I Lord can see you give to the needy just as easily as he can hear you pray the roof off.'" There is no grief like the grief which does not speak. An exchange has the following : "The daily newspapers in Deadwood, in the Ulack Hills, are not much larcrer than a sheet of foolscap, and are delivered for 18 a year. Every subscriber is required, as announced in the prospectus, to 'down with the dust, iet, when we ask you for that 'mighty dollar,' you get your backup! Ain't you ashamed of your self?" The follow ing from an exchange hits the nail on the head: "Intelligence means thiift, honesty and rational enjoy ment. Ignorance means vice, poverty, crime, wretchedness. Money spent in educating the people will save ten fold the expense -in jails, almhouses, and criminal courts. Itis the duty of every one to encourage education in every possible way." It is a caution howthe editors are skip ping from public to private life. They act all the world as though the civil ser vice clamps had reached the sanctum.

The reputation it enjoys is derived from its cures, and the confidence which prominent physicians all over the coun try rejKse in it, prove their experience of its usefulness.
