I ive and twenty years ago my wife andT
were ero-ing over into Italy. -After we had

of th ferriage, thinking we should git
in ipiite as fast, and perhaps more pleasant.;-.

'is-twice or thviee before, when a happy
I mean an unhappy achelor, and I rani-inhered
the bypaths pretty well ; and wc
w re soon in sight of the inn where we in
trti 1,-d to pass the night, not very far from
t'ue summit of the pass. As we toiled on
overtook a gentleman, apparently an
1'.' -'Miimn. and a little boy. I beliee
lust feeling pretty sure, from the appear
8 1 -' t!ie iu in, that we were compatriots
:tj 1 something or other to him, remarked
t!:a: :t was a fine evening, or that the scene
ry was very grand I forget what. He,
ii v.-r. ma ! sime monosyllable reply,
iii'i did not appear inclined to traterni.e ;
i ,-o ne pa--:d on. Still I took a hasty
'"!' iii n. H- was a man apparently of
oihu eil.t and twei'ty or thirty years of
of a delicate frame, and almost feoai-t'-ie
e-u:it.-tiaiiee. One thing I particularly
ti .tie-. 1 he fiad a slight but peculiar
Ji'ark under the left eye, what DoX or Cox
ih:-')it have called a strawberry mark. The
y thru was with him, a child of not more
tii!i ;s years oi l, was evidently his son, for
1-th I and my wife traced a very strong re-fr-iiib'anee
between the pair, and the little
f-.-iiow looked very pale and tired as his fath
er dragged him slowly up the steep ascent.
e soon left them far behind, and my wife
r-'niarked that it was a curious circumstance
'hat these two should be thus going over
tu-j pa-s ; for we could see no other carriage
t" the road which could belong to theni,and
:ie naturallv thought it very hard that such
yountr child should be forced to make such
tedious journey upon foot. However,
"ten we arriyed at our destination we tho't
Ho more of thetn ; and, after a pleasant and
f Piziog supper, in which red trout I
read them now in the bill formed no un
important item, we strolled out again, and
watched the white glories of the rising moon
spreading over the highland valley in which
we were. When we entered the hotel again,
and went into the salle a manger for some
coffee, we discovered the younger of our fel
low toilers sitting meekly by himself in a
corner of the room. A taMe was spread
for supper before him, and he was patiently
awaiting the arrival of his father.
His large blue eyes looked tired and sad;
Lis golden curls hung tangled over his
shoulders ; no tender hand had cared for
him after his weary walk ;T. saw the tears
stauding in my wife's eyes as she whispered
to me, "He has no mother to take care of
him." This, I thought, was a hasty con
clusion to arrive at ; and I said so. My wife
wiser than I, I suppose shook her head
and entirely disagreed with me.
We lingered over our coffee for some time
longer than necessary. The patient child
sat bilent in the dark corner ; now and then
the blue eyes wandered inquiringly toward
the door, but found no answer there. An
hour passed away, but his father if the
man we had seen was his father, and of this
we had no doubt never came.
"I can't stand this, John," paid Laura to
me, indignantly. "If somebody doesn't
give that poor child his supper, I'll give it
to him myself."
I remonstrated mildly ; "I don't think
we have any right to interfere, my dear.
x- 1 1.1-1 ...
o uouut nis iatner is taking a nap up
stairs, and he will wake up ar:d be down
'"Nap, indeed I" retorted Laura, rather
savagely. Indeed, I had no idea till then
that my sweet bride could be so savage if
she choose. ''Nap. indeed ! with that dar
ling starving in uncomplaining silence !
I've half a mind to ask whieh is his room,
and give him a rousing he won't easily for
get." Tiii. I thought, would be a highly im
proper proceeding upon Laura's part; and
I ventured to say so. She contented her
self with repeating, wish greater vehemence
than before, "Nap, indetJ I"
At that moment we heard the heavy
sound of the diiijene-j. aud the gay jingling
of th.j horses' beiis, as it stopped at the
door of the hotel. Cold aud muiH ;d pas
sengers for we were some seven or eight
thousand feet above the sea came into the
room and partook of various drinks; but
they soon cleared out again. The horses
had been changed ; and, with a great
smacking of whips and loud pcaline of
bells, the huge diligence pursued its load to
The pale-faced, golden hatred child still
sat quietly in the dark corner. Once or
twice the tired head sank upon the little
shoulder, a:;d for a moment or two he drop
ped a-!eep. Then he would wake up again
anl stare at the unkind door, which at ev
ery opening brought no relief.
After the diligence had been gone some
twenty miuutcs, and Laura had got into a
state of fidgets which threatened to pass all
control, the landlord and head waiter came
into the room, looked at the "little boy, then
talked together volubly in a whisper, looked
at the little boy again, and shook their heads
in a mysterious manner. Then the land
lord advanced stiaight to where we were
"A thousand pardons for asking the
question ; but do Monsieur and Madame
know anything of the little gentleman yon
der?"" '
'"No, nothing; beyond that Monsieur and
Madame passed the little gentleman and
his father as they ascended the pass."
"Is Monsieur aware that the father is an
Englishman ?"
"Well, Monsieur had guessed as much,
but could not say more."
"Well, it is very strange. It is some
time now since these two arrived. The
father engaged a room, and ordered supper.
The father had said that his luggage would
be deposited by the diligence ; but the dili
gence had come and gone, and though par
ticular inquiries were made, the conductor
was quite sure there was no lugtrage such
as had been described to be deposited at
ihis hot..l."
"There must have been some mistake."
"Not possible. The authorities are very
particular in these cases. And where is
Monsieur le pcre?"
"(loud to sleep in his chamber, proba
bly," I suggested.
"Not at all! It is empty. There is
nothing whatever in it. In fact the gentle
man was seen to leave the hotel the moment
after ha had ordered supper and given in
structions about his baggage, and ba3 not
Laura was watching the uncomplaining
child. The large blue eyes were directed
toward us, as if guessing that he was the
object of our conversation. She could not
restrain herself any longer; and she rose
from her seat and went up to the child. He
shrank a little, I thought, as she approach
ed, but there was something about her lace
which speedily reassured hiiu.
"You are a little English boy, are you
not?"' she said, as sh sat down beside
He murmured. "Yes." But I could see
a working in the Utile white throat ; the
poor, tired manikin was striving bravely to
keep down his tears.
"You want your supper, do you not?"
asked Laura, as with one hand she stroked
the eolden curls. "You are very tired, and
ought to have your supper and go to bed.
Where i3 papa? Was not that your papa
who brought you here?
"Yes, my papa brought me here ; and he
said we were to have something to eat; and
I was to wait here quietly until he came
back. Very quietly, he told me, and he
should soon be back."
"Would you not like to have your supper
at once ?" said Laura. "Your papa is ta
king a longer walk than he intended, and
he will be very sorry that you should be so
hungry. Shall I not ask the gentleman,"
pointing to Jh'e landlord", woo had come up
to the table, "to bring . you something to
cat at once?"
"No, thank you, I must wait for my
Entreaties and coaxings were all in rain,
and Laura, fearful of distressing him still
more, left him alone, and resumed her seat
by me.
Nearly another hour passed away. Laura
insisted on remaining in the room, and we
listlessly studied the Livre det Etrangers.
Uy-and-by the silence of the dark corner
was broken. The courage of the gallant
little mite had given way ; he was sobbing
as if his heart would break. Laura had
him in her arms in a moment.
'"Oh, papa! papa!" he cried, in his bit
ter agony. Oh, papa ! papa ! how could
you leave me so long aloue ? Oh, papa 1
come back come back !"
Above his low, sad wail I heard the
sound of persons entering the hotel, and
then there was a busy hum of voices, and
a minute or two afterward the landlord,
with a strange expression in his face, looked
in at the door and beckoned to me. I has
tily left the room. There, at the entrance
of the hotel, I found the waiters and other
people gathered. Three peasants lad just
come in. bringing with them something
they had found something whieh lay in a
disfigured heap upon the ground.
They had found the body of a man, I
w as quickly told, at the bottom of a low
cliff ahDiu a quarter of a mile from the
hotel. Then they uncovered the face, and
I at once recognized the man Laura and I
had passed on the ascent. Then, as a cold
shiver came over me, I heard a cry within
the room I had left.
"My papa has come back I know he
has !" and before any one could interfere the
door of the salle a manger was thrown open
and the palid, weeping child tottered out, j
followed hastily by Laura.
"Where is papa? I know he is here!"
And, cheeking his violent sobs, he looked
eagerly at the solemn faces around him.
"Why won't you tell me where papa is?
"Oh ! w'mt's that upon the floor?"
Then, before any one could stop hiin. he
cast himself down and laid his cheek by the
cold white lips that nevermore could kiss
him or breathe a wor.i rt love into his ear.
Gentle hands raised hi,n softly, and bore
him away to the room the dead man had
prepared, and laid him down upon the bed.
He seemed to know his own utter desola
tion, and the paroxysm of grief was strange
Iv stilled. Laura remained with him all
night; and when the first red lights of the
rising sun bathed with deep sp!end?r the
silent glaciers an 1 the snowy peaks, the
young heart ha 1 broken beneath its burden
rnd the weary spirit fled away.
Shortly afterward at Milan, I think it
was I saw a copy of the Times, and in the
second column I saw an advertisement for a
man with a red mark under his eye ; and
when I returned to England I learned the
whole story.
This man, who had ever borne the high
est character, had got into deep distress,
owing principally to the f-hameful conduct
of a friend for whom he had become surety,
and in an evil moment he had fallen, and
had forged a check for a considerable
amount, intending aj such unhappy men
always do intend to replace the money,
lie failed in doing this, and, conscious that
his fraud must infallibly be discovered, he
had fled from England, taking, with him
his motherless child. Whether, in a fit of
dispair, he had thrown himself from the
cliff, or whether he had simply missed his
footing, it is impossible to say. Father and
son rest in one grave in a churchyard on
that mountain height ; and on every anni
versary of the awful tragedy the good peas
ants plaee wreaths of immortelles upon the
simple wh.te cross that marks the nameless
One of the amusements at Long Branch
is to watch the New Jersey mosquitoes open
clams with their bills, on the shore. Seve

"How is it," said a man to his. neighbor,
"that Parson W , the laziest man living,
writes such interminable long sermons?"
"Why," said the other, '"he probably gets
to writing, and is too lazy to stop."
Patience is exemplified in the man who
left his wagon while the horse balked, and
sat on a stump and read the Bible till the
animal was hungry enough to go home.

use of gunpowder, is said to be a hoax.

Cost of Loaferism : Does the young
man who persists in being a loafer ever re
flect how much less it would cost to be a
decent, respectable man ? Does he imagine
that loaferism is inore ecomieal than gentili
ty? Anybody can be a gentleman if he
chooses to be, without much cost, but it is
mighty expensive being a loafer. It costs
time in the firat plao-days, weeks, months
of it in fact about all the time he has,
for no man can be a first-class loafer without
devoting nearly his whole time to it. The
occupation, well followed, hardly affords
time for eating, sleeping, dri we had al
most said drinking, but on reflection we
except that. The loafer finds time to drink,
whenever invited.
It costs friends. Once fully embarked
on the sea of loaferdom, and you may bid
farewell to every friendly sail that floats
under an honest and legitimate flag. Your
consorts will only be the buccaneers of socie
ty. It costs money ; f r though the loafer
may not earn a cint, or have one for months,
time lost might have produced him much
more if devoted in industry instead of sloth.
It costs health, vigor, comfort all the true
pleasures of living; honor, dignity, self
respect, and the respect of the world when
living, and finally, all regret,. or considera
tion when dead. Be a gentleman, then ; it
is far cheaper.

Couldn't Stand It. A steward on an
Ohio river steamer was addresced by an
uneasy and excited individual, who wanted
him to put somebody off the boat. The
candidate for a forcible disembarkation was
pointed out, but the steward could see noth
ing out of the way. "You don't eh? Don't
you see a man there hugging a woman ?"
"Well, yes," replied the steward, "but
what of that ; hasn't a fellow a right to era
brace his wife?"
"That's just what I want you to run him
out for," replied the stranger dancing aroutvl
"that's my wife, and I've stood it so long
that I've got mad !"
An old toper started for home one night
in his normal condition, with a turkey he
had obtained for a holiday dinner. He
found the road very rough, and fell several
times over all sorts of obstructions in the
path. Each time he fell he dropped the
turkey, but contrived to pick it up again.
On entering his house he steadied himself
as well as he was able, and said to his wife,
"Jlre, wify, I'vy jifofc levoi 4wk3rs for
you." "Eleven turkeys! What do you
mean? There is only one." "There must
be 'leven turkeys, wifey, for 1 fell down

Still full of romance, they went to the hotel
to spend the honeymoon. At dinner the
bridegroom accidentally struck the bride
with a piece of ice over the left eye. She
took the matter as personal, slapped him
in the face and returned to her parents on
the next train. It is a pity that a single
lump of ice should have caused such a sud
deu "coolness" between them.

into one of the dental establishments in

"Sir," said the astonished landlady to a
traveler, who had just sent his cup forward

A passenger, having hired a boat to take

Philadelphia, Pa., Feb. 45, 187.
H. T, Helhbom), Druggist:
Dear Sir : I have bean a sufferer, far upward
of twenty years, with gravel, bladder and kidney
affections, during which time I have ased various
medicinal preparations, and been under the treat'
ment of the most eminent Physicians, xprin
cing but little relief
Having seen your preparations extensively ad
vertised, I consulted with my family physician in
regard to using yeur Extract Buchu.
I did this because 1 had nsed all kinds ef ad
vertised remedies, and bad found them worthless,
and ecmt quite injurious ; in faet, I despaired of
ever getting well, and determined tus n rem
edies hereafter unices I knew of th ingredients.
It was this that prompted me to use your remedy.
As you advertised that it was composed ef bucha , "
(ubebs and juniper berries, it occurred torn and
my physician as an excellent combination, and,
a ith bis ad vie, after an examination of th arti
cle, and consulting again with th druggist, I
concluded to try it. I commenced its use about
eight months ago, at which tim I was eefifined
to my room From the first bottl I was astonish'
ed and gratified at the beneficial effect, and after1
using it three weeks was able to walk out. I fait
much like writing you a full statement of myeaa
at that tim, but thought my improvement might
only be temporary, and therefore concluded to
defer and see if it would effect a perfect ear,
knowing then it would be of greater vala t yoa
and more satisfactory to me.
I am now able to report that a ear is effected
after using the remedy for fiv months.
I have not used any now for thre months, and
feel as well in all respect as I ever did.
Tour Buchu being devoid ot any unpleasant
taste and odor, a nice tenia and invigorator of th
system, I do not mean to b without it whenever
occasion may require its us in such affections.
Should any doubt Mr. MeCormick's statement,
he refers to tbe following gentlemen :
Don. Wm.Bigler, ex Governor Penn'a.
Hon Thomas C Florena, Philadelphia.
Hon. J. C. Knox, Judge, Philadelphia.
