The Farmer's Setter Dog. do the the and with Semi' is 25 00 period 2 7. 2 40 00 7 8 00 t 3 O nov!2w6 undt l'r The subject, jist now, of my llowin' rhynw Is a setter that set two-thirds of the tiluo, And oat a quarter, and barked a third, With the awfullest bark you ever beard. In Memory's ward of white washed balls, Thut motionless dog hangs on the wall, With white on his tail, and white on bis toes. And white on hiB ears, and white on his cose. With the meekest expression out of his eyes, And tho terriblest appetite for pies; And over him hangs, forever more, The simple epitaph "gone before." Not that I think he'll share with me The joys or griefs of eternity, But wherever that dog gois, live or dead, There's this much certain bo's goin' ahead. no never was where ho wanted to be Unless ho was trottin' along with me, And ho was always huutin' around For somethiu' or other he never found. Ho couldn't ketch g:imo for ho went too slow If he had 'a caught it, he'd let it go. He couldn't find birds, nor drive home cows, For the simple reason he didn't know how. That setter dog was with mo First time I popped the question; I've laughed so lunch about it That it's injured my digestion. Although ho wasn't all to blame. When I was comin' back, I could have kicked that setter dog From here to Ballyhaclt. I had been callin' on a girl For many a weary day Her father had a big, nice farm About a mile away. He was a rich old customer He had a lot o' money, And Bhe was sweet as sugar And a good deal worse than honey. You know that curious feelin' That a feller always has, When he's took about a barrel Of that cray laughin'-gas-Well that's the way that I felt, My heart was all so meller, Au' I thought tho host way out of it Was jist to up and tell her. When ail your soul makes music, Like the cooin' of a dove, You needn't try to smother That pesky buggar, love. You can't keep in your feolin's, No more'n you can the hives I'd rathor kill a kitten, With forty thousand Hvcb. I hadn't felt so narvous Since that long-remembered day, When the lightnin' struck the Btraw-Btack, And the bay horse run away. And so, one winter evenin', I set about to see What Fato and Mary Hawkins, WaB layiu' up for me. The Bky was dull and cloudy, The snow, it was a spittiu' It jist looked like the very night To git a whoppin' mitten. But I got up enough of hope To banish all my fears, And pulled my hat down over The edges of my ears. I needn't tell you how I sweat, For all the kind o' night, Nor how I nearly busted, When a fence rail broke, for spite. I got there, and before I rapped I went and took a look, And Baw that blessed angel Through tho window, with a book. I took my coat off somewhere I don't remember now I have a way o' slingin' things, Jist kind o' every how. We discussed tho new Bchool-teacher, With his diamond collar button, And Banks's new spring-wagon, And tho latest apple-cutlin', The projects fur sit ihh-ridiu', Tom Ilemple's bride, and so on, Till we'd u-ieil up all the topics That jit then was a-goin'. It seemed to me that that 'ar gal W as actio' awful Mean, And worse than any weather That I mostly ever seen. But I was there on business, And I wouldn't be outdone By any yaller-beaded gal, That ever wore a tongue. So I begun a talkin,' And a-wadin' in the niiro, Atid she kep' still and list'nin', And gazin' in the fire. I worried through with punkin-crops, And politics and sicb, And them oncomniou streaks o' luck That makes some people rich; And then 1 lired another load Of wise pbikmophy, About why people should enjoy I'.ach other's company. Atid jist here I was bothered, For 1 could plainly feel A snnicthiu' gently gnaw in' At my boot, above the heel. But, however, I continued In a solemn eaructd tone, That a burden is much lighter For two than one alone. And if ono ox took a notion To use and wear a yoke, It would be most awful likely He'd git bis fool neck broke. But Mary looked so blasted cold, I thought she'd inebbe free3, And so I neaied the subjuct By put ty quick degrees. That gnawin' thing was gitten' worse, And I imagined witches, And as I did it give a pull That like to tore my britches. And when I stopped my talkin', And looked for what was there, That setter dog was settin' Jist underneath my chair. I saw that Mary's count'nance WaB covered with a grin, And all the dimples showin' About her cheeks and chin. That dog's untimely foolin' Had spoiled my wiiole effect, And I co-ild a jerked his head off Or leastways sprained his ueck. And when I reached the subject, 'Twas too abrupt, you know, And in my ears is ringin' That everlastin' "No.M But that was only one case Of a million score and six; He got in more predicaments Than any lunatic. Everytime I whipped him Ho stayed warm for a week, And I would 'a whipped him harder, But he looked so dratted meek. I tried to make him stay at home, But nary bit of that. His tail begun a-waggin', When I put on my hat. We went to church one Sunday. In the latter part of May, The sun was shiuin' mighty bright, And all the world w as gay. The calves and colts was danoin', In awkward jigs and reels, A-rnnnin' and a-jumpin', And a-kickin' up their heels. The setter looked as ehierful As any tree in bloom, Though he seemed a little hampered 'Cause there wasn't 'nongh o' room. And every bird was chatterin', Like be had a talo to tell, And tho fields and woods was Btnellin' Like Eden used to Bmell. The church doors all was open, As wide as they would go, And the tin roof wbb a glitteriu' Up on the cupelo. The church looked jist as usual The seats was jist as stiff But every feller looked like he Had got a Christmas gift. It made them feel so lively To fill up on that air, And see the parson's shining pate Untarnished by a hair. The parson preached hii sermon The best that he could do And everything went easy, Till he got nearly through. I'd iieard a kind o' growlin' In the corner onot or twict, And tliat ikig was a-flghtM M'ith Deacon Jones's Jiest. The parson dropped his glasses, And looked a little skeered, And Deacon Tones kep' fidgetin,' And jerkin at his beard; And Wider Brown is narrous She squalled right out in meetin' And I got kind o' squeamish, And felt my heart a-beatin'; And then I felt like laughin', But I tried to keep from sinnin', And some young fellers by the door WTaa simperin' and grinnin.' The fieut got scared 'bout half to death And jumped clear out the winder, And broke the eash and glass and stuff And smashed it all to flinders. The parson couldn't find his specs, And couldn't read his sermon, And what was goin' to be done I couldn't quite determine. The sexton he looked stupid, But then a worthy sister Struck up a hymn that fit the case As good as any blister. That good old hymn I've always knowed 'Ten thousand foes arise, The hosts of sin are pressin' hard To draw thee from the skies.' I thought that sixteen thousand, Or even forty-nine, Couldn't make as big a racket In quite as short a time. That setter kep' a-growlin', And rummagin' about, And for fear he'd tear the house down I got up and took him out. He got himself in trouble Wherover there was any, And where he found there wasn't none He always made a plenty. His queer career was ended By a singular mishap, For one night someone hung him With a noose and hitchiu'-strap. I felt most awful sorry, Though I knowed it was in vain, And I tried to think that his loss Would be my eternal gain. A feller gits attached to stock, Or anything he finds, He'll take to Spanish-needles In a mighty little time. And when I went a-walkiu', I always would believe, That I could bear his restless feet A-patterin' in the leaves. And I could almost see him, In that stiff legged trot, And the more I thought about it The sorrier I got. My conscience was effected Way down below the roots, And I felt my nerves a-goin' In the bottoms of my boots. And then to e p the climax And you needn't think I'm lyin I fumbled for my han'kerchief, And busted out a-erytn'. Henn B. Mecca. LETTERS FROM MEXICO. Extracts from the Private Correspondence of Miss Mamie Loyd. NO. 1. (We have Been kindly furnished with extrnels from private letters to President Loyd Bui wife, of the Highland Female College, rooeutly received from their daughter, Miss Mamie Loyd, who is now engaged in missionary work iu the City of Mexico, They will be rend with special interest by the numerous friends of the writer, as well as by our readers generally.) Kovemiieb 4th. This is a beautiful morning, quite warm in the sunshine, but chilly elsewhere, My hands are so cold I can scarcely write. I am sitting by the open front window with my feot in the sunshine. The thermometer hanging near me iu the Bhado says 65 degrees; by hold ing it in the sunshine a few minutes it runs up to 82 degrees: I think it generally stands between 150 aud 70 degrees. I sup pose it must be much colder at homo. Bhnll be anxious to know tho result of this day's voting iu the States; I received the paper you sent after the other election. One of our girls iB to be married to-day. The wedding will take place in the parlor at Gantti, and ltev. C. Druos Will porform the ceremony. I am afraid we will have scene when 'Lola' leaves our baby Lillie, as she has taken charge of her for six months. The greater number of our ems are orphans, whose friends are not strict Cath olics, and put them here to got rid of them. Only a few pay auything, for the most of them we furnish everything. They fare very well, much better than the most of them would if their friends had them. They have for Bnpper and breakfast, coffee, bread and Frijoles (beaus). For dinner, meat and vegetables one day, and fruit and vegetables the next day. They do not have butter, Irish potatoes or oatmeal, these articles are too expensive butter cents per pound, oatmeal aud sprits each 30 cents, while ham is one dollar a pound, a liimry in which none of us indulge ! Some of our girls are quite dark, with coarse straight black hair. They seem like my eyes because they are blue ! The women go bareheaded or wear shawl or mantle over their heads. They will go out in the broiling hot sun with covering for the head except a parasol, and of these we have great variety in color, size and shape. There is a cathedral next door to the orphanage, and you will fine carriages with handsome spans horses in waiting for ladies of high rank, elegantly dressed, with beautiful rich mantles over the head pinned to the hair, snd falling over the neck aud shoulders, but never over the face! Ladies of rank ride, the men walk. is not proper for ladies to go out alone. Girls never ro out on errands, you must send a boy or man. As we ride in mornings we meet great numbers of people coming to the city, who have neither washed or combed if we may judge from appearance. And their clothes. Well, they seem to wear them until they ready to drop oil ! Hags here are too gone to be of use, so rng-merchauts send the States for supplies 1 I have not much Buffering, but Oh 1 so much filth. Our house is two stories high, right the street, as people here do not have yards. We enter through doors large enough for wagon to pass through. They do not door-knobs or handles, but the front doors are always kept fastoned by a chain across them on tho inside, so whenever you to come in, you must knock; and the will be opened by the porter or some mem ber of his family. The knockor consists two pieces of iron, one hanging loosely over the other, and you simply strike together. When you enter the first to the left is occupied by the porter family, the next is the girls sewing room, and the next, porter's kitchen, where will likely find one or more chickens fastened to the table legs. The walls floors are of stone. After passing rooms you come to a large open space paved with Btoue, called the patio, farther back another patio, where the horses all day on the Btones, sometimes iu shade, but often in the sunshine. are only fed once a day, as that is the here. CouBin Charlie's horse roan, not nearly so large as our "Billy aud Miss Lelluray's little brown pony very much smaller. it is very cunning and likes to be petted is very fond of lump of sugar, which it often gets. The school rooms and our rooms occupy the second floor. In front and back of school rooms are four large dormitories, where the girls sleep on single iron steads. We have thirty-six boarders. have no flues or places for fire, except the kitchen and ironing room, where are big brick ranges with holes on top oharcoal, and they cook by placing things on the red hot coals. They for washing clothes, immense stones out on one Bide, while the other slants down to the bottom just as a board Btauds in the tub on that they the clothes, and I am surprised to find well done. We have an abundance of kinds of fruit and vegetables. The City is much nicer than I expected to find it. 1 hero aro a few nice parks dnvos, but Its greatest need naturally plenty of grass ami trees. The water supply is largely from an meuBo spring at onapultepec, 2J away. It is pumped up by nu engine conveyed to the City in great largo duets built of stone, high enough for riages to pass under them through arches. Immense loads are carried by donkeys, without either halter or briillo.

The Rich Man's Fear of Burglars— The Rich Man's Fear of Burglars— The Story of an Electrician. Buffalo, N. Y., News. a n, 50 to a no see of lace It the are far to seen on a have want door of them room and yon and these also stand the They At the dead of night, Mr. J. li. Anthony, a wholesale grocer of Troy, N. Y., was awakened by his burglar alarm annuncia tor, which told him that his house had becu entered through the roof Bcuttle. He hastily dresses, rings for a policemuu, hur ries to the upper story, and hears the bur glar in the servant's room, threatening her with instant duath if she made a loud noise. He wnscaptured, convicted and sentenced to Sing Sing prison for ten years. So said Mr. C. II. Westfall, the electric ian of Westfield, N. Y., to our reporter. "Do city residents generally use burglar alarms ?" "Yes, all first-class houses are provided with them ami I have never had any dissat isfaction from my customers, many of whom aro the best known and wealthiest pooplo of New York, Boston, Philadelphia and other large cities." "Ho wealthy men have much fesr of burglars ?" "As a rule, wealthy men do not koep valuobles in their house, and yet they are not sure that they shall escape burglarious attacks, and they don't feel secure without a first-class burglar alarm apparatus their house. Every door, window and scuttle is connected with the annunciator, and it is quite impossible to effect nn en trance without the fact becoming at once known." "Don't electricians run considerable risk in handling wires ?" "Even the most careful of them some times get a shock. A few years ago, while I was descending Btairs at Elniira, N. Y', with a wire coil iu my baud, I felt as if had received the entire charge from the battery. For over a half hour I suffered the keenest agony. I did not know but what I hud been fatally injured. After completing my busim ss circuit, I returned to Boston, and for eighteeu months did not get over the shock. I lost my appetite; all food tasted alike. I could not walk across the common without resting several times. "My head w hirled, and I reeled like drunken man. I consulted the best physi cians iu a good many large cities, but none or them seomed to understand my case. About a year ago I was in Albany, and physician there stated that I would proba bly not live three mouths. But to-day," said Mr. Westfall, and he straightened him self np with conscious pride, "so far as know, I otn in perfect health. I weigh 170 pounds, eat well, sleep well, feel well, aud am well. Oue of my old physicians gave me a thorough examination a weeks ago, aud told me that I was iu a per fect condition." You are a very fortunate man, sir," remarked the scribe, "to have escaped stant death after au electrical shock." "O, it was not electricity that prostrated uie. is was a uremic convulsion. for my physicians told mo I was a victim of very serious kidney disorder. Aud when they and a dozen widely advertised modi ciues failed to benefit me, Warner's cure restored me to perfect health. preparation is invaluable to every grade Bociety, for it is a priceless blessing." There is no need of death from ling electrical wires if the operators exercise care. Iu our burglar alarm ments there is no possible danger from source." When a remedy has proven itself to be cure for consumption and a perfect restorer, it should be kept in every regulated home. We refer to Dr. Wistar's Balsam of wild Cherry, a single dose which will cure au ordinary cough or A few bottles will cure consumption. It very pleasant to take.
