ttcd i'ottnt. MAY TIME. The south wind blows the tender spires Of the young and fragrant grass. And. joyously, the winged choirs Of spring-birds, sieging, pais. Tbey pass me by nor leave me lone Comes back their sweet refrain, at sweet as murmur of the brook Swollen by summer's rain. And now 'chime in the same sweet stream, Until I scarcely know Wfcetber the sweeter sing the birds Or the sparkling waves below. A Dear the jasmin from its perch Of treUi-ed bars droops low. And the olden apple- tree abloom . Drops blossoms pure as snow. The softened bom of the early bee A low, sweet endertone And the constant tide of the lily-lake With its cradled buds unblown. The s:gh of the pine on the west hillside The graceful boughs of the birch. And the unmoved arms ef the constant ok That shadows the village church. Afar, afar behold the hills In their regal verdure dressed, Crowned by blue caressed by cljuds That brood in graceful rest. My spirit soars as do the clouds Clings to the steadfast he ignis Lcsgeth to know the yet unknown Beyond the sunset lights Tbe purple shadows steal athwart The bright, bright shining stream ; The swet, sweet birds are flown to rest-' The folded roes dream. And the spicy sweet of the yellow bloom Of the current fills the air. Until my eoul can only know That earth is very fair. A FATAL MISTAKE. There dwelt in Colifornta.souie years ago, three friends, wi'.d fellows enough, who had K-t-TTiingly linked their fortunes for the bet ter or wore, and who, whatsoever their lack, were constantly in eaeh other's cora j.any. These ymn men were Charles Chester, Harry Rray, and Edward Warren. They were more btotherly than n.any brothers, more akin than many kinsmen. True to each other, even when women and money were between them. Damon and Pytliia. with a twin Damon ad.lei. For a Inns time they had been very poor; at last fortune tavored them. Each had a certain sum, by no means contemptible, stowed away in the leathern blt he wore about his waist. Each carried a gold watch, and each w.ws a suit of clothes supposed by himself to be the latest htyle and choicest fa-hian. .Moreover their revolvers were perfect; silver mount eJ, and rejoicing in a multiplicity of bar rels; for without these it would be quita impossible to maintain a position in thi quarter of the world in ary society. How they came by these possession xv will not inquire too particularly. They were neither burglars nor highwayman, but dice and betting miy have helped them to the i.ming of their fortunes. They were not over scrupulous, but wo'ild hare kmniked r.-y man down who neglected to addre ? m as gentlemen, and used those wonder ! i. revolvers J.romjjtly oo any "sinn?er" w!..-. c bieeted to drink with them, and con se'jently, stood rather high in the comma Certainly, in their conduct to each other they were faultlefsly honored and airarjlouyly rencrous. He diy, s13n after "luck" had come to its U-t. a lett-er directed in a tremulous, w .roan's hand t-j '"Charles Chester," was banded to that .ernber of the trio in the r'esenee of the other two. The young fel l w seized it eagerly, tre it open, read it t:,r juzh, aud, teai'ng off his belt, spread it- contents before; him upon the tabie and c anted it over. Having done so, he burst into tears, and very unwi.sely and profound iy curbed himself for extravagance, and re i ie:cd for himseif all i-ort of ancomforta b'e things here and hereafter, a proceeding which seems to relieve some men extremely, :. 'Uzh why it wou.d puzzle the unenlight oed to deciare. Thj cause of all this, as b: comrades soon discovered, was that his raother had written to feim from her little Varm in a Southern State, to tellhiui a dole tale of sickness, death among the stock, i.e.. and a final crash. A mortgage was a!-iu'-t due, and, as the old people would find it impossible t5 meet it, they would be sold 'at and lefr homeless in their age." "Lt wlli kill your father," wrote the uiother, ' and I will die with Lim." I did it all," said the jroao fellow, sob bing openly. "My debts and my wild way? encumbered them at first, and now look." AnJ h pointed to the gold upon the ta tle, and began his profane litany ugiin. The mortgage was three thousand dollars, and he bai but two thousand. U that all?" eried .Ned Warren, haul ing at his belt. "Good Heaven ! What does he take me for?" cried Harry Bray, furiously. "Five hundred apiece and the expenses of the jour ney are about the figure. There, go to the old folks. We'll see about your horse while you pack your bag.". This set the othc. oath again ; but in a joyful style this time. They were tramps and bricks, and by everything he could think of he'd do for them if there were any need cf it. '"Ile'J pay them back if he lived, he'd be"d bless them ;" and so choked off into sob again, at which they left him to recov er, returned with a horse and a well filled pocket fiask, and saw him set forth upon his niision as though the "old folks" had been their old folks also. Tter waited for news from him, but none came. They waited quietly at first, then impatiently ; at last they heard this : He had never been seen at home, or by any one who knew him, since the day on which they had shook hands with him. Some terrible fate had befallen bim in the lonely places oyer which he had journeyed alone. To doubt him never entered their minds. They must discover his fate, and if it were what they supposed, avenge hiin. So one bright morning, well mounted, well armed, and followed by a favorite dog. A hound who would by no means be left' be hind, the IP 6 set forth in search of their lost jomrade. They took the road he must fiave taten, and asked at every tavern and cabin for news of him. One old mats fe tneinbered him well ; another had pointed out the dangerous place in the road leading past a precipice to a man of their lost friend's description, bat at that point tbe cliie was lost. After much travel and many inqui ries, our comrades began to fear that they should have paused to examine the rocks and ravines at the foot of the precipice allu ded to, ere they proceeded further, and de termined to turn back and do so. They came to this resolution about nightfall, .and just as they reached the borders of a little farm, which bore evidence of careful tillage. Upon this land stood also a farm-house; from the crevices in the shutters of which streamed long bars of rUddy lamplight, and whence tWeound of music was plainly heard. It was the only dwelling within sight. , "We will stay here," said one friend. to the other, "until davfn and then return." That the house was not an inn did not matter to either of tbem. Hospitality was never refused is the hud at that day. They rode boldly up to' the gate and gave a loud halloa. In an instant the door open ed, and thsy could see within a .sudden pan ic in a lively dance, as all tieads turned to see what had caused this interruption. "Can you let us sleep here to-niaht," in quired one of the friends, as one asks who fear no refusal. "Certainly, gentlemen," said a pleasant voice. "You're welcome. You'll find a stable there, and corn for your burses. Our man Jack is on the floor tonight, but here's a lantern if you'll tend to yourselves." "All right, stranger," said Harry, "and thank you, too." And the two men lei their horsC: liilo a stable, already full. Ned watered them and secured them for tbe night, and would have left the place at once, but that one of the animals attracted Harry's attention. He turned back to look bim, examined him from head to foot, turned red and pale, and suddenly clutched Xed's arm. "You remember the horse we bought for Charles Chester," he asked. i "Yes," said Ned. "Look at the fellow," said Harry. "Yes, tbe very one. The star on bis forehead. the scar on his fore-leg. the color, the height, Ned. it's Charley's horse 1" "It is the horse. ' s.'id Ned, slowly. "Har ry, if Chprley had lived to go, his horse would have gone with him." "The owner of this animal may know all we need to bear," said Harry. "It won't be rood news, Ned." ., Nel shook his heal, and sadly andsu.nly men went toward the house. They found the dancing at its height, and that this wa- the home-co'minz "of the farmer's bride, a pretty young woman with rosy cheeks and sparkling eyes, of whom the stalwart bride groom seemed very foed and proud. . , "Sit down, strangers," said an old man near the door. "You've come Rt a merry time, and won't f?t much attention. My son is jest the happiest fellow out, I believe. You see they've been waitin' quite a spell and he had no luck, none at all, ind it seem ed he'd got to give up ; but six mouths back he had a streak. Wonderful ! explained it, but I don't remember, so l.e sends for her and me from Connecticut. She's an orphan gal ; and as soon as her school term was over she was teaching, ye know she cone. This is their house-warming, and them's the neighbors. They all like Ike. Ike's a good fellow a real g03d fellow, though 1 say it. Take a nip, strangers don't be afraid of the jug. I'll fill it again. Why, what aib your dog?" The dog left outside was howling rather fearfully. ' Wants to come in, perhaps," said Ned, "but it mightn't bo agreeable to the la dies." "Bring him in," said the old man; bnt the dog would not cora. He stood beside a r"atch of grass ih the garden howling wofully, and scratching acd tearing with all his might Leave the spot ha would not, and the friends, as they saw him, and remembered the hor?e in the sta ble, felt the blood curdle in their veins. "Whose horse is that with a whits scar on his foreieg a handsome brown horse with wondcrfnl eyes?'' whispered Harry to the old man. "That's my son's horse," said th old man. "Where did he buy it?" asked the other. "Don't know," said the old man, laugh ing childishly. "Come to him with the rest of his good luck six months ago." Again the dog outside began to howL Aeain tbe friends felt cold chills creep over them. "Where are we to sleep?" asked Edward f the old man. "We don't want supper we need rest." "I'll show you," said the old man. "The bouse will be full to night, but you'll not mind roughing it." And he lei the way to an tipper room where a rude bed was already spread. "Just lie down here, strangers," he said. "There's a blanket, if you're cold, and there's a candle. Good night." And he left them. But not asleep. The to men had sought solitude that they might commune with each "other. Yet no they could only say, "What does this mean?" They had said it in as many ways a dozen times, when Harry, by accident, lifted his eyes f o a peg in the rough wall. On it hung something which riveted bis gaze with hor ror. Yet it was an object quite common and innocent in itself only a pair of brown saddle-bags, rather new in Appearance, and with the letters 'C. C." on the side. "LooS I" he cried. "Look, Edward 1" The other, in turn, stood niute for a time, then gave a spring toward the peg, tore the bags down and opened tbem. .Within they found garments they knew their friend had worn, an empty belt, and the daguerreotype of a young lady of whom they had known him to be very "His horse in the stable, his saddle-bags and belt here, the dog howl'mg on the turf without what does it all mean?" cried Harry again; And Xed answered, "We shall soon see," and strode in to the great room where the dancing ws goiog on, and np to the bride groom, standing at the head of a Yirgicia reel, with his bride's hand in his own. "Stop a bit," cried Ned, furiously. "We have a question to ask. Whose horse is that in the stable the brown one with a star on the forehead?" "Mine," said the farmer turning deadly white. . "And the saddle-bags tip stairs, marked C. C. ?" The farmer turned paler. "Gentlemen," he said, "wait until morn ing and t will explain everything." "We choose to learn the truth for our selves," said the young man fiercely. "Yon had a mysterious streak of luck sii months ago, I understand from the old man there," said Harry Bray. . "Not very mysterious," said the farmer. "I went to the digging and fell in with a nugget, as for the horse I found him and the saddle-bags, too. If you know to whom they belong, he'a welcome to them." "They belong to the man yon murdered tor bis money, and buried in the ground yonder, where the dog stands howling." cried Harry Bray. "We are going to dig there, and Heaven help any man who hin ders us!" ."Dig whereyou choose," said the farmer. "I aui too well known here to be afraid of two tuadujjn. Zmurdera man II There I am a fool to care for such words ! Dig, confound you 1 Many a horse strays in the wcods ; many a man found one, as weil as L Come neighbors, tet tbe fiddles going, and let the madmen dig." And the s'pndes sank into the tnrf, an.l the terrified guests gathered around, and the bride clung to her husband s arm, and the music was duiub, aud the dog's long melancholy howl 6 fled the air; and, at last, just as the rising moon flung her yellow beams upon the new dug earth, Ned War ren cried in an awful voice, "He is here !" And the two friends lifted from the grave that which had been a man, with long death:grown black hairfiilliug down over his shoulders. , t . . i . - He had been shot in the head and turo' the heart, and there was no doubt in either mind that it was the body of their lost friend. The farmer seemed petrified with horror. The bride fell into a death-like swoon, the guests fell away from their host, and looked at him1 askance. The father tore his hair and pleaded for mercy. But there was b mercy in any heart there. The avengers were all powerful. The great room adorned for festival and mirth was turned into a court-room. The "romen tVrcst from it, the men remained. On the raised stand where the fiddlers had been seated, Harry Bray now took bis seat id the character of Judge Lynch. The jury vras named, the mock trial hurried on, the accused called upon to answer. He plead not guilty. He denied any knowledge of that a grave ay near his home. He persisted in the repeti tion of the statement that he had found the horse and the saddle-bags, but he adm!ttd there had been money in tbe latter. He stood before them looking very unlike a murderer, calling on them for justice calling on God to witneos the truth bf his words ; speaking of his young w lie aud bis old fatiier; bidding his neighbors remember that he had never done them any wrong. Judge Lynch has no mercy, no compas sion, belief in the possibility of false aocu sation;an J this Judge Lynch was an avenger of blood. Then was what the end of such a trial generally is ; tbs sentence, the awfnl one of dosth ; and in leas than tbree hours from the moment on which they first saw the bridegroom Lappy and blithe, stan din; at the head of a gay country daoce,bi body dangleU a horrible slht to look upon, from the branch of a tree that shaddowed what all believed his victim's grave. When all was over they found the old father dead in his chair beside tbe fire-place, and found among the women a hopeless gibbering maniac, whom tbey would hardly have known for the rosy-cheeked young bride. They were revenged, bat at what cost? The two men returned to their home, sad dened and altered, and yet not remorseftil, for they had but avenged their eowrade,end this, to tbem, seemed common justice. The legal code of border life had been adhered to ; but for the last look at tbe mad bride they could scarcely have recognized how aw ful all this had been. They lived on togeth er, friends still, speaking of Charley, and fancying that in some other world be might even know how weil they had revenged themselves upon bis murderer. And so five years passed. And one day CLEARFIELD, PA., WEDNESDAY. APRIL 12, 1871. the two went together into a coffee-room kept by an old Frenchman in the city of San Francisco, and. being in low spirits, out of luck, and with slender purses, were sit ting disconsolately over their meal, when a hand came down on each shoulder, and a voice cried, "Found at last! I've searched the city for you. Heaven bless you, dear boys 1" It was Charles Chester, handsome and cheerful, well-dressed, and well-to-do look ing Charles Chester, whose murderer they believed themselves to have lynched years before. And this was the story he told them, won dering at their palid looks and awe-struck silence the while : "Tbe money he had with him being in gold and heavy for his belt, he placed it in his saddle-bags, and had Completed many miles of his journey, when, near a new and apparently deserted dwel ling, he saw a man lying, groaning terribly. Dismounting, he assisted him, and found that he was a traveler who had been set up on by ruffians, and robbed and wounded. He had crawled to this house for assistance, but found il empty, and now lay dying in the road. Charles Chester had done his best for the poor fellow, without avaiL. He died in his arms just as the sun went down; and by its fading light, he had dug a grave on the turf before the empty house, and there buried bim. There was no one in sight, and his fears of an attack upon him self warned him to harry on ; but when the last sad rites over, and he turned to remount bis horse, it was gone. Tbe animal bad es caped into the woods, and, with night com ing on, all search seemed hopeless. The money in the saddle-bags rendered tbe loss a maddenic; one. He threaded his way through the underbrush, calling his steed by name, uutil total darkness hid all objects; and, at last, striking his head violently against a tree, he fell to the ground insensi ble. When he came to himself he wis ly ing in a wagon, to which he had been con veyed by a kindly German who' could speak no English: In falling he had broken bis arm, and was very weak and ill. Before he was able to communicate bis story to any one, all hope cf recovering either horse or iiioney bad deserted him. He was in de spair, lie couIU not assist bis parents, xo return to his friends would be to cast him self upon their bounty. This be would hot do ; and his struggles had been great at first, but tbey were over now. He had done well by "the old folks," and had returned to pay his debts and resumw'liis friendship with his old friends," He was with them be lived. The far mer had doubtless told the truth. He did not know why the turf had grown so green ;n t. i;lo yard, and he ESQ round the horse at large in the woods, and knew noth iiig of the rider ; but the thing had been done and could not be undone the dead brought to life, or tbe maniac's mind re stored, or the blood washed from the mur derer's bands. Of course they told their story, and of course they believed their friendshipas warm as ever; but it was not so. They never would meet each other again as of yore. The two could not forget the man they bad lynched to avenge their friend, and doubted the propriety of returning alive and merry to trouble tneir consciences, which were quiet enough so long as be seemed dead. As for Charles Chester, he cleared the murdered man's memory among Kis neighbors, and saw the wild eyed, white faced woman, who only shook ber head and moaned and muttered when be spoke to her; and then be too was conteut to say good-bye to those who had done the deed albeit for his sake. So the three pirted, each going his own way ; for thus it seemed easier to forget the deed done by JuJe Lynch and bis court upon the day of the bride's coming home. Signs and Tokens. The Gridiron. To take down the gridiron from the nail where it is hanging, with the left hand, Is a sign rhnt therp will be a broil in the kitchen. . The Mirror. If a mirror is broken it is a sign that a good-looking lias will be missed in that house. Pocket Book. To lose a pocket book containing greenbacks is unlucky. Nails. If a woman cuts' her nails every Monday it is lucky for her husband Roosters. If you hear a rooster crow when you are in bed and the clock strikes a few times at the same instant, it is a sign of mo(u'rnin. An itching car. It you have an itching ear, tickle your nose hnd you will have an itcbiog there, and ill luck will be averted. A young lady once observed, "When I go to the thestre, I am very careless of my dress, as the audience are too attentive to tbe play to observe' my wardrobe ; but when I go to church I am very particular in my outward appeafance. as most people go there to see how their neighbors dress and deport themselves." One of the most important female quali ties is sweetness of temper. Heaven did not give to women insinuation and persua sion in order to be surly ; it did not make them weak ia order to be imperious ; it did not give them a sweet voice to be employed in scoHing. At New York a short time ago, a person applied to tne proper court to be divorced from bis wife because she would persist in" putting her cold feet against bim when in bed. "Money makes the man." Perhaps it does ; but Punch thinks it particularly nec essary that man should make money first. gu$mf$s girrrtorti. - A W. WALTERS. ATT0B5ET At Law. . Clearfield, Pa.

T, Helbbold, Druggist: Deab Sib: I nave been a sufferer, for upward of twenty years, with gravel, bladder and kidney affections, during which time I hare used various medicinal preparations, and fceen under the treat ment of the most eminent Physicians, experietv eiEg but little relief Having seen your preparations extensively ad vertised, I consulted with my family pbysieian U regard to asing your Extract Baehu. I did this because t had used all kinds of ad vertised remedies, and had found tbem worthless, and some quite injurious,' in fact, I despaired of ever getting well, acd determined to use no rem edies hereafter unless I knew of the ingredient. Itwas this that prompted me to use your remedy. As you advertised that it was composed of buchu , cube be and juniper berries, it occurred to me and iny physician as an excellent combination, and,' a its, his advice, after an examination of the arti cle, and consulting again with the druggist, I concluded to try it. I commenced it use about eight month ago, at which time I was confined to my room. From the first bottle I was astonish ed and gratified at the beneficial effect and after using it three weeks was able to walk out. I felt neeh like writing you a full statement of my ease at that time, but thought my improvement might only be temporary, and therefore concluded to' defer and see if it would effect a perfect cure; knowing then it would be of greater value to you and mora satisfactory to me. I am now able to report that a cure is affected a!er using the remedy Tor five month. I have not used any now for three months, and feel as well in all respects as I ever did. Tour Buchu being devoid ot any unpleasant tute and odor, a nice tenie and invigorator of the system. I do not mean to be without it whenever occasien may require it use in such affection.
