When he was a lad of seven teen he bade good-by to li's father's farm ia Berkshire, Ma^s., and made his way to his uncle Nathan's at Hartford, Cr>., having a capital of tliirtv-seven and a half cents, and "a good head for fig ures. " Uncle Nathan kept a grocery store, and took the boy into it at a salary of sixty dollars a year and his board, to be increased to seventy-five the second year, and to one hundred the third. In two yea-s Edwin learned the bus iness, and his uncle sent him to New York to buy gocd3, particularly com, an article which New England then had to import. Uncle Nathan generally laid in two or three hundred bushels at a time. * f "I have bought two cargoes of corn," said the lad on his return, "and proba ably the vessels are in the river now. " " Why, Edwin !" cried the prudent old gentleman, aghast, what are we to do with two cargoes of corn ?" "Oh," sa : d the young man, "I have sold all of it that you won't want at a profit, and could have sold three car goes if I had had them. I stopped in at the stores as I came from the stage oflice and made sales." The next morning the young operator tcok the broom as usual, and was about to sweep out the counting-room, when Uncle Nathan said: "I think we can find some one else to do the sweeping here. A man who can go to New York and buy two cargoes of corn and sell them without consulting his principal, can be better employed than sweeping ont a store." Uiicle Nathan took him into partner ship forthwith, ard, five years later, Edwin founded a grocery house in New York, which still exists, after having enriched its founder and several asso ciates. His strong point was judgment. He made few mistakes. * The great ice-fields in the North Atlantic, says the Rochester Democrat , are probably the causes of our very chilly weather. Were it not for the enormous ice drift out of Baffin's bay, each year, our climate would be quite mild in comparison with what it is. The vast field of ice and monstrous bergs rob the air of its warmth and produce ch Ring winds. The iuflnence of the GnJf stream is neutralized until the ice disappears. Women are most perfect when most womanly.— G adstone. Under ordinary circumstances there is no accounting for names, but there is a clergyman in minois bearing the name of Toof, in whose case it looks os if he or some.one of lus ancestors had be come weary of a somewhat lowly appel Zatkm, and had reversed it How a Belroiter Found Water. I had married and afterward settled in the city of Detro it about 1844 or 1845. I bought a lot at the extreme southern limit of the city; one line of my lot wa? the city boundary; it w'as adjoining an orchard. Being so far out, the popula tion was sparse, and the water-pipes had not been laid, so the citizens of that section depended on weih. I trail , and residing on my lot, and, not having put down a well, depended on my neigh bor for water. We had long dry spells or droughts, when mo3t of the wells were dry. I delayed putting down a well until the next season of drought. Then the question to be decided was whereon the lot to locate it, the lot being about 50x100. It happened that one cf my young sisters, aged about 10 years, was visiting us. She had never heard of finding water with a forked twig. One Sunday afternoon, at the very latter end of our periodical drought, I was talking with my wife about dig ging a well, when all at once the:-e rushed into my mind the remembrance of Anna finding water in "York State" for uncle on his farm. I related the circumstances, and proposed to get some twigs and let my wife and sister try them, and see if they would work in their hands. The next trouble was to get the wil low forked twigs, for, as I supposed at that time, nothing but willow would work, and, as there was not a willow in the city nor State that I knew of, my wife proposed that I shcul l go into the orchard adjoining and get some apple tree forked tw'g3. With no faith in them I prepared some, and, placing one each in my wife's and sisters hands, in the position as nearly as I could re member having seen it held, and hold ing one myself, we sallied out into the yard, and went marching around pro miscuously. All at once my wife cried out excitedly, "The twig works in my hands." Walking a little further on, «Town went the single upper end, plumb. My sister, seeing the operation, held hèr twig in position, when plumb down it turned, frightening her so that she screamed and dropped her twig. I was as much surprised as they were, and at first thought they were playing a joke ; they declared they were not. However, I quietly marked the spot, and to re move all doubt I blindfolded both and led them all around the yard; whenever we came to where the stream of water ran underground the twigs would point down in both their hands. I had full f iith to dig a well around the point in dicated, and I found abundance of water. Even in times of drought, while my neighbors' wells gave but, mine had plenty; so much so that my well fur nished onr family and neighbors and their domestic animals during such peri ods .— Forent and Stream.
