And never from my nestlings stray;

Chick.—
Well, mother, you are getting oi l.
And papa has so ollru told
that II wan wrong lor hens to think

For me to sit at home ana red —
At least to rest what time I get
Alter I’ve fed you all, my ia-t;

Fur ot all coickens you’re the match
To gobble up the hits I find,
Hut if I’ve nunc, you do notin.no.
CIIU.K
Well. Where doer papa stay all dav
Is he at Work, or does he play
Voo know we never see him her* —
It seems to me its rather queer
I hat he should gad about so free.
And none of us allowed to See
UuUdds the yard; 1 know, for one
1 hat with another ruing sun—

come.
And lie mast Uni. a pleasant harm ,
Ur he will leave hn house lor good,
Aud all his pretty, helpless brood;

Vou know h never likes to wail; >
And then tun back to get his chair.
And for his sllpperw’have a care
I lIP.K.
Mother, for your poor sake, I’ll go
And do Uie thing you’ve told me to;
IU. smooth his faults as best you cm
He IS a bard, unfeeling luau ;
He’s just the sort i call a shirk ;
I’ray tell me, did he ever work
I never sww him scratch a stroke

here ? He will probably say, us 1 do
myself now, that I had better have
listened to father and stuck to the
farm, instead of going around the
■•ouniry, making an ap** of myself,
trying to sell this confounded patent
bootjack 1 Twenty dollars a day. in
deed! 1 would like to see twenty
cents a day ! Hang the thing !
[D *>r open- cautiously, and Hill and
Joe enter.]
Joe —Hello, Short 1 So you’ve turn
ed up again? Say, noldy here—is
there? You v’r- ve ventured into
the lion’s jaws ic see you. What are
yon up to now, dr“*sed up so smart?
Going to marry another Bridget Me-
Flinnigau, and clear out with the
dosh? Ha, ha, ha! That was well
done, though. Come in with us
again, John, and we'il show you
something handsome, to the tune of
live thousand !
John—You are laboring under a
mistake, sir; 1 don't know either of
you.
Bill—That’s it ; bluff your old cro
nies, my pious Father Morton. Put
on tliat old gray wig, and read pray
ers at the Sailors’ Chapel, again, and
I defy the best detective in Boston to
point bis finger at little Short, the
forger, burglar, and run away hus
band! You’re a sharp ’un. Father
Morton. Ob, yes!
John, ( Rising.)—What’s the mean
ing of ali this? 1 tell you I never saw
you before, and don’t know what you
are talking about.
Joe. (Slapping ids shoulder.
Come, now, Father Morton, if you
are sharp so are we. Don’t try your
dodges on us! We know you read
ing prayers, and we know you now ;
and you just slop your gassing, and
tell us what you are into. Mum -
the word ?
John—Aside—Thunder and guns!
—They will make me believe I’m
somebody else, in spite oi my teeth !
I tell you, ouec for all, I’m not the
person you take me for. My name
is John Jones, from
Biddy .Short Very loud, outside—
Inhere, your honor; 1 saw him go
in mesilt afore 1 run to tell trees, nit
own h’y!
[Officer and Biddy enter. She rushes
at John with outstretched arm-.]
Ouh, honey, ye’ve eooru at la.-t!
How could ye go an treat your own
Biddy ,hat bad, who loved ye so?
Say, Jimmy, darlint, now could ye
now, and me wapiti’ mesilf to ashes !
Oeh, wurra !
John—pushing her away—Stand
off, woman ! Are you mad, or tipsy
Biddy—Stan, off, is it ? Dbrunk is
it? Ve villain! Where’s the money
old ye shtole out of me black
stockin’ fut under the tied in the
brown pitcher, and rund away with
it ? Ye thavin’ bla’g’ard ?
John, aside—Ten thousand furits!
Am I John Jones, or a thieving
blackleg?—Will some kind friend in
form me? Take this wild creature
away. 1 know nothing of her. She
must he crazy !
Biddy, shaking her list at him—
Do ye say to me face that ye niver
saw me afore an’ 1 yer own thrue
wife? An’ there’s the ring will
prove it, >e spalpeen! Book at the
ring.
Officer —Be calm, my good woman ;
there may he some mistake here an
accidental resemblance. 1 know
Short myself, and am not ipiite -ure
he is the same, though the likeness
is striking.
Biddy—A mistake, is it, now? An’
1 don’t know me own husband, Jim
Short, an’ the father uv me b’y!
Mis.e, honey, loom here, an" se*- if
lie’ll deny his own -hild? Who i- it,
Mike, darlint ?
Mike —It’s pappy.
Biddy— Yes, It’s pappy; theeould
hlooded villain ; an’ he to deny it I
ft 00-00.
John —Will no one listen tome? I
protest I know nothing ot this wo
man. lam a stranger lo re, and wa
never in the ity in my life until
twenty-four hours ago.
Officer -The woman surely ought
to know her husband.
Biddy Oeh, the tmirlhcrin nla’g’-
ard ! look for yourself, yer honor, an’
see him square oil’ as' he alius did
when I guv him a little tap wi’ the
tire-shoovil ! Don’t I know him,
though? Me own cousin Meg Mc-
Carthy, she said, said she.
Don’t yes go for to marry the
thavin’ \ atikee h’y, Biddy, lor it’s
only the little I it o’ bounty poor Bat
left yees, an his blissed bones a
moulderin’ ’inong the nagers an’
rattlesnakes, as he’s aft in r, an’ then
he’ll dare and lave je. Look well,
Biddy, afore yc lape, she said. An’
1 bhu kid her eve for siundherin’ me
h’y; had loock to me for’t. Only
look at him, yer honor, dressed up
like a foine gintleman, wi’ the mon
ey me poor pool Patrick sold his
blood for, an’ mesilf in rags, an" me
poor little Mike er\in’ fo a crust.
Wringing her hands and crying.;
Officer-—l’ll is looks had for you, mv
man; you must come with us, and
have an investigation.
John —Never, su 1 I own I’m from
the country, and may seem green
enough to lie the ready dupe of a
pair ot blacklegs and a woman very
lit to bo their accomplice, hut I rais
ed a fair set of Knuckles on the farm,
and I’ll tight you singly or all to
gether before you’ll Oreo me to own
an Irish termagant for my wife,even
with her lovely otl-pring' thrown in.
Officer —Come, come, none of this!
or 1 will arrest you for resisting the
law.
Lawyer Blaine enters.
Blaine—Well, well, quite a gather
ing. Any trouble, Mr. Officer? Ah,
John, how dye do? Shake hands.
Father up, or did you come alone?
(Had to see you, my hoy.
John 1 am quite alone, and a
stranger here. Will you not inform
the officer that hi' need not arrest
nft for this vixin’s runaway h is-
I bund? Poor w retch 1 1 don’t Maine
him for running away.
Blaine —Hh, ha, ha! Well, that’s a
joke, sure enough !
Officer—Look lure, Blaine, you
know this fellow ?
Biddy -Och, ver honor, don’t 1
know him betther nor a bushel o' fun
naught peratees.
Otlieer —Stop your noise, woman,
or you may get locked up yourselr.
Plaint -Bless your soul, known
him all my life. Sly old frlend June's
hoy, down in fork county. Come,
clear those folks out now. Know
him ? He never was oil the farm un
til three months ago- ir was it four,
John'?
Officer —1 beg your pardon, Mr.
Jones; it’s all a mistake. This wo
man was deceived by the resem
blance. Where are those men 1 s ;t \ V
here ? I’m sure 1 ivcogtii/. -.1 that no
torious Swagen. I hope lie hasn’t
given me the slip.
[Kxit in haste.
Biddy, howling-No mistake at
all lat uhl. It’s me ow n dear Jim !
(Mr. Blaine gently forces her out.)
Blaine—Quite an adventure, my
young friend. Ha, ha 1 But what,

John To tell the truth, Squire
H’.aiue, working on the (arm seemed
like-tow plodding tome. I thought it
i ml<! only stall out ou my own
hook, it would Lie the easiest thing
in the world to make money. So
when a fellow came along with bis
famous patent bootjack, 1 Wa-. all
ready to nab it. In* told Mieis a tire

fore you leap, John." A dull old
- aw, i e .lied it then, hut a wise* one
now. 1 took a:, agency, and was go
ing to make fifteen or twenty dollars
a day! Pshaw!
Blaine —Don't pay much better
than farming—eh?
John —I wa- sure of my bread and
butter ou the farm, at any rate—-and
that’s more than I can say now, not
to mention the pleasant little inei
d> tits that happen to one in travel
ing, like sleeping with a few of the
youngest children and other creeping
things, "’cause sister Jane’s come
on, and we’re rather crowded,” and
i wiping my face on a greasy apron
for a towei. And then I’ve been
taken for a blackleg, swindler, and I
don’t know what all; and if you had
not come in j u=t as you did, should
probably be in jail now fora forger
or housebreaker, or else dodging the
amiable Biddy’s tire-shovel!
Blaine—Well, John, if an old man’s
advice is worth anything, I should
say. Stick to the farm. It’s slow,
hut sure, and you’ve seen enough of
patent bootjacks.
John -I’ve learned a lesson, squire ;
and it ever I get back, you will hard
ly see me jumping at patent agencies
again, even with the tempting bait
of twenty dollars a day. From this
time forth I mean to stick to the
farm. It may he slow, hut it’- sure.

Don’t Scold.
Ji never did any good. 11 is in it*
self evil—“evil and only evil, and
that continually.” It is the worst
possible way to deal with men or wo
men, or children. It harts your busi
ness. It sours y ,ur home. It sprits
your children. It injures, most of
all,yourself. Scold your pai tnor,and
yon have at once a house divided
against itself, and it cannot stand.
Scold your clerks, and you break
down their interest in your prosper
ity, and dispose them to lender with
laggard hands eye-service, and no
thing more. Scold a customer, and
lie not only avoids you himself, hut
probably dissuades others from you.
However unreasonable or perverse
he was what he remembers is, that
you were cross. Scolding is wretch
edly out of place at home. It destroys
affection. It breeds distrust. It
sometimes tears asunder those whom
Hod made to be one flesh. A wife
who could cling with long suffering
trust and love to a drunken husband
that, when sober, was generous and
genial, would grow bitter towards
the one, however correct and prov
ident, who was forever fretting. And
no neatness or diligent and wise
housewifery can make up to a hus
band the loss of that meek and quiet
spirit which in the sight of God, is of
great price. For the government of
children there is i o worse device than
scolding. To begiu with, it is a
token of personal weakness on the
part of parent or teacher. Children
so view it instinctively. It destroys
thus all reverence. And then it
sours their tempers. It destroys
their love of home or school. It
breaks up their interest in the work
to which they may be set. It tempts
them, and almost drives them to hy
pocrisy. Many a naturally noble
boy lias been mined, because in this
way, his home was made a prison
house of torture.— Pacific.

In about six or seven weeks you will

over it, as the vinegar is of a purer
quality if the plant does not lie whol

John s Bargain.
“1 don’t like you ;tt all, Maidie
Royal. You are a ivai naughty !it
11** girl, and i won't play with you
any m.in—so!”
Maidie loo!u-d very mu* h grieveti,
and hegan. to <-ry. Mr. Royal was
sitting at bis desk, writing, but at
John’s* emphat'e words, he glaneed
up, and said to his son, in a very
gr ive voice.
“John, corno here.”
“I was just going into the kitchen,”
stammered John,coloring. “I wan t
to speak to Kitty.”
“But I wish to speak to yon,” said
Mr. Royal. So John came.slowly up
to the desk, with the look of a cul
prit on his face.
“What, ir?”
"I want to know how much you
will take for your share in Maidie v
“John looked up, surprised.
“I don’t know what you mean,” he
said.
“ Why,’’explained his father,“since
you have done playing with Maidie,
I would like to buy your share in
her, or your right to her. How much
shall I give you for her?”
“How much money do you mean,
papa?”
“Yes.”
“I guess I’ll sell her for fifty dollars”
said John, after a few moments’ re
flection. “Yes, I will—fifty dollars.”
“Very well; that is .juite reasona
ble,” said Mr. Royal. “Now you
must remember that as 1 am going
to buy all your right to Maidie, you
have nothing more to do with her.
You must not kiss her, or speak to
her, or play with her any more. She
is your mamma’s little girl and mine,
not vours at all. It is a bargain, is
it. John?”
“Can’t I kiss her good-night, when
we go to bed ?”
“No.”
“Can’t we go out doors together?”
John’s vo ce began to sound a lit
tle unsteady. “Von know our gar
den, papa?”
“ Vou will have to make another
somewhere else, f will find you a
place. You must not work in the
same garden any more.”
“I shall have to lead her to school,
papa; she will get lost if I don’t,
just as sure as anything.”
“I will attend to that, John Vou
will have to go to school by yourself.
Is the bargain made?”
“ V-c-s,sir —I suppose so,” and John
east a doubtful glance at Maidie, who
stood close by, with her doll in her
arms, and tears on her long eye
lashes,
“Very well said Mr. Royal. “When
you want the money, you can ask
me for it. Vou may go now.”
“I know what I mean to buy,”
thought John, running to the other
end of the room, and sitting down in
the broad cushioned window seat.
“I’ll buy a pony anti a saddle, and a
gold watch, and a saddle, and u gold
watch, and a sail boat, and lots of
other things that I’ve been a-want
iii' ever since I was a little boy.”
The idea of these splendid acquisi
tions was so I’l easant, that he want
ed to share it with someone, so he
cried out.
“Oh, Maidie, you come here, and
I’ll tell what I’m going to buy with
m v fifty dollars.”
“Stop, stop,” cried papa; “have
you furgotton so soon that you have
no right to speak to Maidie? She
doesn’t belong to you ut all.”
A cloud came over John’s face, ami
he sat very stillfor a long time, think
ing,and by and by two or three tears
fell. Maidie and he had played to
gether ever since he could remember,
such a long, long time! and she wits
the only little sister in* had in the
world, a real tea/.e, some limes, to he
sure, hut then how could he got along
without her? He looked slyly out
from behind the window cut tains, to
see what she was doing.
How pretty she looked, sitting in
a. high chair beside her father, with
a book of colored pictures open be
fore her, and tier sunny curls tailing
over her rosy checks and white neck!
Wasn’t she better than a sail boat,or
a gold watch, or even a pony? “Yes,
indeed a thousand million times,”
thought John ; “and yet I’ve gone
and sold her for fifty dollars, and I
u’lnost know that papa won’t take it
back, ’couse it was a regular bargain.
Oh, dear, iear !”
Here the tears began to flow faster
and faster, and presently a choking
little soti attracted Mr. Royal’s at
tention. Then another amt another,
and then John jumped down from
the window seat, ami running to the
desk, hid his face on his father’s arm,
ami burst into such a passion of tears
that Maidie was frightened and be
gan to cry too.
“Why, what is the matter, my
sen ?”
“1 —I l—don’t wa-wanl to—to—
sell my right to Maidie,” answered
Joint, as well as lie could, for weep
ing.
“Why—not for fifty dollars ?” ask
ed pupa.
“Oh, no,” said John ; “no indeed,
not for fifty million. Will you let
me have her hack again, please,
dear papa? ami I don’t believe I’ll
ever he so naughty and cross as long
a- I live.”
“Very well,” said Mr. Royal, smil
ing. “Since you wish it so very
mm-h, I will give up toy bargain,
and you may have your little sister
back again, but I hope you will
think, another time, when you are
tempted to speak to her as you did
to-day, how you would feel not to
have Maidie at all.”
“I guess I shall,” said John, giv
ing her a good hug and a kiss. “I
love you, Maidie.”
“So do 1 you,” said Maidie, return
ing the caress. “Now let’s go out ini
our garden, Joint.”
So away they run, hand in hand, !
u- merry as the birds that were sing- >
ing il|> among the houghs of the old i
butternut tree.— From “Little Mai

A Maruiaoi: Maki;ii.— When

Wilson, the lady reminded him that
it would be necessary tu ask the ap
proval of her sire. “< 'ertain!y,”said
Aytotin;“bnt U" i am a little diffident
in speaking to him on the subject,
you must just go ami tell him my
proposals yourself.” The lady pr -
ceeded to the library and taking
her father affectionately by the
hand mentioned that Professor Ay
toun had asked her to become bis
wife. She added, ‘‘Shall I accept
his oiler, papa? He says he is too
diffident to name the subject to you
himself.” “Then,” said old Chris
topher, ”1 had better write my reply,'
and pin it to your back.” He did so.
and the lady returned.!*.* the draw ing

the answer to bis message, which
wa- in these words, ‘‘With the'
author’s compliments.”
