BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU SAY In speaking of a persons faults, Tray don't forget yonr own; Remember, those with homes of glasa Should seldom throw a stone; If we have nothing else to do Than talk of those who ain, Tis hotter we commence at home. And from that point begin. We have no right to judge a man, Until he's fairly tried;' Should we not like his company, We know the world is wide. Soma may have faults and who has not? Xhe old as well as young; Perhaps we may, for aught we know, Hare fifty to their one. I'll tell yon of a better plan, And find it works full well; To tr ymy own defect to cure Ere others faults I tell; And though I sometimes hepe te bo No worse than some I know, My own shortcoming! bid me let The faults of others go. Then let us all, when we begin To slander friend or foe, Think of the barm one word may do To those we little know. Remember, curses, sometimes, like Our chickens, "roost at home;" Don't speak of others' faults until We have none of our own. BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU SAY Selected Story. Pearls and Blackberries. "No," said Dr. Darling, slowly, "no; I can't believe the evidence of my own senses." And as be enunci ated the words with impressive dis tinctness he looked solemnly at llar ry Clifford. He might have found a worse looking individual to fix his regards upon than this young M. L)., wno had taken his first season in bones, mnscles and human anatomy, with the therapeutics belonging thereto, in the liUle office across the hall, and was jast preparing to hang out shiucic or his own; lor Harry Clifford was tall and shapely, with rod brown hair, and a huge auburn mustache, and merry eyes that laughed like springs of water in sunshine. Mr. Darling took off his specta cles, folded them, and deliberately placed them in their case, without taking his eyes frorm his neophyte. Harrv Clifford smiled, but he looked little embarrassed, notwithstand ing. "She would have you in a minute, f you were to propose," pursued Dr. Darling, dropping great red-hot splashes of sealing-wax over a blot ter in an aimless sort of way. "Yes, but I tell you, sir, that I don't want to propose, said Harry, staring at the Intertwined D. J. D.'s as if they were the most interesting things in the world. "You don't want a pretty girl for wife?" "Not that pretty girl in particular, Doctor." Nor fifty thousand dollars?" added the Doctor, pronouncing the three momentous words in a manner that made them seem very weighty indeed. "I would not object to the fifty thousand dollars in itself, sir, but as mere appendage to Miss Brad bury" "I believe trie Doy is crazy," ejac ulated Dr. Darling. "Well, well, as the Scotch proverb las it, 'a willfu' man maun hae his way,' and I shall interfere no farther. By the way, Ifarry " "Yes, sir? " "You are going to the city this afternoon? " "That is my present intention, sir." "Stop at Dcbierre's will you, and leave Mrs. Darling's pearl brooch to bo mended. I ought to have done it a week ago, but a man can't think of everything." "Certainly, .Doctor," ana iiarry Clifford deposited the pearl brooch an old-fashioned ornament of mas sive gold set with tiny seed pearls in his waistcoat pocket. "Rather a careless way to carry j'ewelry, young man," said Dr. Darl ing, elevating his eyeorows. The morning sun was casting bright, flickering threads of gold across the kitchen floor; the morn ing glories and Maderia vines, train ed across the casement, stirred soft ly in the mid July air; and Ursula Percy, Mrs. Darling's orphari niece, was busy "doing up DiacKoernes, "Do you know what answer i reaa from those eves, dearest.' he whis- nrfd. after a moment or two of silence, broken only by the hissing and simmering of the blackberries. "No." "I reed ves." "O, Harry, I dare not. Uncle and aunt are so determined you snail marry Miss Bradbury." "And I am so determined not to marry her. Is a man to be given away as if he were a house and lot, or a bundle of old clothes, I should like to know? Ursula " "Harrv, they are burning; I am sure of it. I can 6mell them. O, do let go of my hands." Harry Cliiiord aciuy siczea up Fresh as a rose, with hazel eyes, snftened to intense blackness at times by the shadow of their long lashes, and smiling scarlet lips, she stood there her calico dress con cealed by the housewifely apron of white dirnitv that was tied arouna her waist, and her black curls tucked remorselessly back of her cars looking demurely into the acptns 01 the preserving Ketue, use a Deauu ful'parody on one of the witches in Macbeth; while on trie wnueiy scoured pine table beyond, a glittor ine tin vessel was upheaped with the iet-black fruit, each separate berry flashinz like the eve ot an oriental o belle. "Ursula!" The pretty vonnp: girl started- very nearly dropping her skimmer into the preserving kettle. "How vou startled me, Harry." Harry advanced into the kitchen, with an admiring look into the bright face flushed with a little blush and a great deal of stove heat. "You are always at work, Ursula." "I have got to work, Harry, to earn mv own livine," Ursula Percy arts wered. with a slinht uplifting of her exquisite black brows. I am not an heiress like Miss Bradbury." "She is a very sweet young lady, Harry," said Ursula, in mildly re proving accents. "I dare say; but what a lot of blackberries you have here, to be sure, Ursula." "Forty quarts," said Ursula, de- imurely. Aunt Darling always en iovs them so much in winter." Harry put a honey-sweet globule of fruit into his mouth "Blackberries are beautiful fruit, Ursula." "Very ; " and Miss Percy skimmed diliffcntly away at the bubblins: cauldron. "Especially when you are doing them up," added the young M. D., with a clumsy effort at compliment. Ursula did not answer. Harry walked up to the ranp-o and took both her hands in his. "Harry don't; the berries will burn." "Let'em burn, then; who cares?" "But what do you want?"- she asked, struggling impotcntly to es cape, and laughing in spite of the grave look she fain would have aS' sumed. . . "To see your eyes, Ursula." She lifted the hazel orbs to his face, then withdrew with sudden shyness. the big iron spoon, and stirred the boiling depths vigorously. "It's all your imagination, Ursula." "No, it's not; and if they arc the least bit scorched they will be spoil ed for Aunt Darling." "But, Ursula" The croaking of an opening door beyond suddenly dissolved the tete-a-tete. Ursula almost pushed Harry Clifford cut of the kitchen. "You'll be out on the piazza to night when they have gone to the concert f he presisted, asking through the crack of tlio door. "Yes, yes, anything everything, only go." And Harry went, beginning to re alize that love-making and preserv ing do not assimilate. "Your pearl brooch, my dear? O, I remember now! I gave it to Harry more than a week ago to have it mended; I dare say it is done by this time." And Dr. Darling turned expectantly to our hero. I I m very sorry, began Harry, "but the brooch disappeared in the most unaccountable manner from my vest pocket. I know I put it there" "Yes," dryly interrupted the elder gentleman, "I remember seeing you put it there, and you assured me at the time that you never lost anything. So the brooch is gone, eh?" "lcs, sir, it is gone. But Mrs. Darling may rest assured," Harry added, with a glance toward that la dy, "that I will replace it at the earliest opportunity." "O, it is of no consequence at all," said Mrs. Darling, with a counte nance that said plainly, It is of the very greatest consequence; "perhaps we shall unci it somewhere in the house." But the days slipped by, one by one, and the doom ot the pearl brooch remained involved in the deepest mystery. Harry Clifford bought another one and presented it to Mrs. Dariing with a little compli mentary speech. Mrs. Darling laughed and pinned it into the folds of the thread-lace barb she wore at her throat. "But it is so strange what can have become of the other!" said Mrs. Darling. It was in the month of September that the old doctor and Mrs.Darling made uj their minds to invite Miss Bradbury to tea. "We will have pound cake and preserved blackberries," said Mrs. Darling, who always looked at the material side of things. "And if Harry don't come to terms now, ho never win, added her hus band, who didn t. Get out the best china, and the chased silver-service, Ursula," said Mrs. Dariing. "And wear your pink French cali co, Chun; its tno most becoming dress you have," said her uncle, with a loving glance at the bright little brunette. And Ursula Percy obeyed both their mandates. MissBradbury rme a handsome, showy lady, withga smooth "society manner that made Ursula tcel her self very countrified and common in deed. "Delicious preserves these ! " said Miss Bradburv. "They arc of Ursula's making, said Mrs. Darling. And Iiarry Clif ford passed his plate for a second supply. "I remember the day tnev were brewed, or baked, or whatever it is you call it," said he, with an arch glance at Ursula. Suddenly old Dr. Darling grew purple in the face, and began to cough violently. Every one started "P ... ... . , "He s swallowed the spoon : cneu Mis Bradbury. "O ! O ! he a got the apoplexy : screamed Mrs. Darling, hysterically. "Uncle, dearest uncle!" piped poor little Ursula, vaguoly catching at a glass of water. But Dr. Darling recovered without any more disastrous symptoms. 4-It isn't the spoon, and I don't come of an apoplectic family," said he. "But upon my word, this is about the biggest blackberry I ever came perilously near swallowing." And ho held out his . wife's pearl brooch boiled up in the blackberries. There wa3 a momentary silence around the table, and then it was broken by Mrs. Darling one of those blessed old ladies who never see an inch beyond their noses. "My goodness gracious!" said Mrs. Darling, "how could it ever come into the preserved blackber ries? I don't see" But I do." said Dr. Darling, look ins nrovokingly knowing. "Yes, I see a good many things that I didn't see before. And Harry, glancing across the table at Ursula, was somewhat con soled to perceive that her cheek was a shade more scarlet, if that were possible, than his own. He followed the Doctor into the office when the evening meal wa3 concluded. Ursula did not know how she ever would have lived through it were it not for Mrs. Darl ing's delightful obtuseness, and So phy Bradbury's surface view of the matter. "Doctor," he began valiantly, but the old gentleman interrupted him. "There's no need of any explana tion, my boy," said he. I know now why you didnt want to marry Miss Bradbury. And I don't say that I blame you much; only that I came near choking to death on Ursula's And Dr. Darling laughed again, until, had his spouse been present, she would have thought a second attack of apoplexy among the inev itables. "Little Ursula!" he added, "who would have thought it? Well, you shall have my blessing." The pearls were all discolored,and the zold of the old-fashioned brooch tarnished with the alchemy of cook ing; but Ursula keeps that old or nament yet, more tenderly treasured than all the modern knick-knacks with which her young husband loads her toilet table. And every year, when she preserves blackberries,Dr. Darling comes to tea and makes ponderous witticisms, pretending to search in the crystal preserve dish for a "boiled brooch ! " But then the jolly old gontlenen will have their jokes. A Successful "Make-Up." Donn Piatt, describing a visit to a cosmetic establishment, says : "What," we asked, "are the arti cles that go to make the beautiful women?" "Well, first of all is our vegetable enamel, perfectly harmless, thatgives the most delicate white I may say, dazzling complexion known to the female." "See," he continued, taking a china pot from the counter, "this is put on easily with a small sponge. Permit me, madam ; it is soon removed and leaves no trace," and saying this he applied a small quantity to the forehead of our com panion. The result on the lace oi a clear brunette was startling. The marble smothness, and at the same time the satiny texture if we may use such an expression, was marvelous. Then ho took another sponge and applied a most beautiful blush, a rose color, upon the white, that was perfectly charming in its natural and soft flush. "And now," he went on, "here is an exquisito instrument with which -i i - . i. . wo trace tne aencate vems tuau, when done, defy the microscope of science. "But how is it possible to make the new face and older shoulders match?" "By making all new. The face, neck, shoulders and arms have to be treated all alike." "And does this artificial process end here?" we asked. "Oh, not at all; we are only just beginning. The eyelashes and eyes have to be treated. The eyebrows . 1 . . . TIT receive special attention. e can not illustrate with you, madam ; na ture has done so much." Ho might well say this, for it is only once in a million such beauti ful eyes, eyelashes and brows are given a womaa. He called to a young lady of the establishment and said, "Miss Biank, will you permit me?" She pleasantly assented, and tak ing a small ivory tablet he placed it under the eyelashes of one eve, and then touching them dextrously and at the same time with the most deli cate art, he made the lashes so de cided, so pronounced, ttey seemed actually to grow. He then penciled the brow, and when done the enect was most decided. The young lady was a blonde, and with one eye treated and the other not treated the result was very decided. "Certainly this is all, we said. "Not at all. We give a delicate tint to the ear, a rosy, steel color to the nails. We leave nothing uncarcd for that goes to make perfection of a beautiful woman." "And are these thing3 in general use.' "Certainly; you can not find a brilliant complexion that has not been made bo by art. We read with great pleasure of the beautiful women of the fashionable circles ot v ash ington and the summer resorts, for we know where they come from." Will it Pay Hold on to Your Grain? It is understood that a portion of the Westorn wheat growers are hold ing back their crop for higher prices, and some think this fact is one cause for the present depression of busi ness. That the policy is a bad one, as a rule, no careful observer can question. When waste and interest on the capital required to carry a crop is considered, it is not difficult to see that chances to profit from the hold-back policy are few and far between. The interest on thi3 cap ital is of as much importance to the farmers as the banker. The steadily declining price of wheat at London and Liverpool, together with the small shipments from here, evidence that this only foreign market is slip ping away from us and being sup plied from other sources ;not unlike ly by tho same nations whica were last year its competitors in the buy ing from us. We see it published that there are in store in New York, at this time, some 1,800,000 bushels of wheat, against only 160,000 bush els one year ago; and if shipments do not soon increase there is a prob ability that by the close of naviga tion that city will hold the extraor dinary stock of over 3,000,000 bush els, against the average ol less than 1,500,000 bushels. This state of af fairs does not indicate any perma nent improvement in the price of wheat for the remainder of the year, but rather tends toward even lower prices for such as will find its way to market at any price; this in turn, will only tighten the grip or tne "holding-en class." So that depres sion and prostration of all the in terests depending on and connected with the wheat growing section may as well be acce pted as the rule for another twelve months. Had this crop of wheat been promptly mark eted until Great Uritian would taKe no more, it would have infused new life into all the industrios and trades of the country and have contributed toward the liquidation of our for eign debt. As it is, except for our own need, the whole crop might as well have been grasshoppered so far as it is of any benefit to the country It is the locking up of just so much capital, which should be freely cir eulated, imparting life and vigor through all the veins of commerce. A Widow's Witness. It was told of old that the cackle of a goose once saved Rome. It is now stated that a swallow won a suit in court away down in Texas. A poor widow and her daughter had a suit for damages before a court in Houston. The counsel for the plain- tur introduced into hi3 pleading the fable of the swallow that built her nest and reared her young under the eaves of the temple of justice. The lawyer enlarged upon the swallow's trust in the protection of her home the place afforded, and very aptly made the application to the case before the court When the counsel was about finishing his illustration a swallow actually flew into the room and alighted nnon the judge's desk. It then hopped away and found rest for the soles of its feet on the railing of the iurv-box. In its circuit of the room it halted for a while upon a pile of law books, then hovered a moment over the heads of the plaintiffs, and flew out of the window and away. The law yer concluded by saying: "Behold the witness," and as the witness could not be called back by the op posing counsel, the case was given to the jury pretty much aa the swal low left it. The jury could not ig nore the bird's evidence," and gave a verdict for the widow. The story is a little birdy, but not in the least fishy. If it was a preconcerted plan of the lawyer it was very happily arranged and nicely carried out, and deserves a place among court re ports and curious pleadings. A Snake in a Lady's Chignon. A letter from Genesee to the Syra cuse (.New lorK) standard under date of September 24, relates the fol lowing: "Yesterday, on the tram on the Erie Railway which runs from Rochester to Dansville, and reaches there at ten a. m., a most sin gular circumstance occurred. When the train was about three miles from this village, the passengers in one of the coaches were alarmed by the singular actions of a lady who gave her name as Mary P. Rhoadc3, of Adrian, Michigan, and a relative of Rev. C. T. Seibt, of Olean, N. Y. She was leaning over a seat,uttering the most piercing cries. A gentle man rushed to her and asked the trouble. She made no answer but continued to scream tho louder. When the train reached this village she was helped into the waiting-room and a gentleman present procured a glass of brandy, which being given to the lady, she appeared to recover some. A lady standing near at this juncture gave a scream.and pointing to the head of Jiiss Khoades,iainted. On examination a large striped snake was observed coiled around the chignon of the lady. How it came there was a mystery, and only explained by the theory that it had got into the car and tooK retuge un der the cushions of the car seat Miss Rhoades stated that she felt something crawling up her head, but could only give vent to her feelings in screams,and until it was taken off did not herself know what the mat ter was. The snake was killed and the affair produced no little excite ment for the time." A Monkey Doctor. A previous narratives of intelli gent proceedings oc the part of an imals are thrown in the shade by the following account of a medical monkey, described by the Oriental correspondent of a London journal: He one day saw a monkey holding a snake by the throat and rubbing its head in the dirt, but, as tne ground was moist and damp, the snake was not readily killed by this mode of punishment Every now and then the monkey would look most knowingly in the face of the reptile to see if it was dead, and in the course of one of theee investi gations the monkey received a se vere bite. This angered him and he speedily dispatched the nake, but its coils had hardly relaxed be fore the monkey fell prostrate, ap parently in all the agonies of death by poison. By this time an agea- looking monkey arrived on the scene, and alter examining the body of the snake and the victim he im mediately started for some neigh boring bushes, where he collected some leaves cf the plant known as the chcrchita. These he rapidly fashioned into a sort of pill, which he administered to his snake bitten companion, who speany reviveu . i-i J and walked off with nis physician The story is declared to come from trustworthy sources. Force of Imagination. An esteemed friend of ours of the medical properties of a cer tain spring some distance from where she resided, bhe nad reaa a pam phlet which enumerated many dis eases, among which she recognized at least half a dozen with which she was afflicted. To her great joy she was told that her son had to call at the very town where tho spring was located, and a five-gallon keg and a strict injunction were laid upon mm to bring back some ot tne water. The keg was put in the wagon. and slipping under the seat was quite overlooked. He had got near home in the evening, when feeling down under tha seat for something, his huriil struck the keg. He therefore drew up his horse by the side of a wall, near which was tne oia sweep well from which the family had drank for a century, and filling the keg went home. The first question put to him was: "Did vou get that water? "Yes," said he, "but darned if I see anv difference in it from any other water." And forthwith the keg wa3 brought in. A cup wa3 handed to the invalid who drank with infinite relish, and said ehe was surprised at her son not seeing a difference. 1 hero was undoubtedly a medical taste about it and it dried up as other water did. which she had always heard of mineral water. Her son hoped it would do her some good, and by the time the ke; was exhausted she was ready to give a ccrtiucate oi tue vaiue oi iuo n . i . i i . r 1 1 . t i. : it having relieved her of all her nu merous ills.

Overreaching Himself. An anecdote is told of Velpeau, the eminent French Burgeon. He had successfully performed, on lit tle child five years old, a most peril ous operation. The mother came to him and said: "Monsieur, mj son is saved, and I really know not how to express my gratitude. Allow me, however, to present you with this pocketbook, embroidered by my own hands." . "Oh, Madame," replied Velpeau, harply, "my art is not merely a question of feeling. My life has its requirements like yours. Dress, even, which is a luxury to ycu, is ne cessary for me. Allow me, there fore, to refuse your charming little preent in exchaage for a more sub stantial remuneration." "Bat Monsieur, what remunera tion do you desire? Fix the fee yourself." "Five thousand francs, madame." The lady very quietly opened the pocket-book, which contained ten thousand francs in notes, counted out five, and after politely handing them over to Velpean, retired. Im agine his feelings! N. T. Medical Becord. Curious Case of Love. Old ladies in their 68th year are not accustomed, we are happy to say, to fall in love; but Mrs. R W , in Mendocino county, Cal., long a widow and the mother of just on dozen children, entertained a tender pai sion for some one who Is satis factorily described as a gentleman.' There were obstacles to union the course of true love ran as rough as usual. Then it was that this an cient Sappho felt that life was no longer worth having. She didn't spring from a cliff into the sea with a harp in her hand, like the Grecian dame; but she less romantically took a dose of bedbug poison,and though they gave her great quantities of lard and sweet milk, she suffered untold agonies for twenty days, and then she exhaled "breathed her last" aa the Santa Rosa Democrat puts it There seems to be no good philoso phical reason why a person aged sixty-eight years should not exper ience the Cupidian thrill3 and throes and so forth; but to die the death of a bedbug for the sake of any gen tleman is what no old lady had best submit to. A mild course of de pleting medicines- would be much better. Advertising a Fine Art There are all sorts of ways to ad vertise, but the last instance in which enterprise and self-possession were admirable mingled, occurred at the recent execution of a crimin al in Washington territory. Just &3 he was about to be swung off, and after he had remarked to the sheriff he had nothing farther to say, a real estate agent whose office was in his hat, forced himscli to the iront. ana no the steps of the scaffold, aart jointly addressing the criminal and the sheriff, said : - 'If the gentleman who occupies the platform will kindly yield for a few moments, I would like to make a few remarks upon the cheap home stead lots at Dobson's Hole, I am now offering for sale." The polite request was assented to, and after a brief summary of the advantages presented by tne locality the sheriff resumed his duties, pull ed the cap over the "gentleman s countenance, and permitted him to drop.

Do not visit the sick when you are fatigued, or when in a state of per spiration, or with the stomach empty for in such conditions you are liable to tako tho infection. When tho disease is very contagious, tako the side of the patient which is near the window. Do not enter the room early in the morning, before it has been aired; and when you come away take some food, change your clothing, and expose the latter to the air for several days. Tobacco smoke is a preventitive of malaria.
