THE ICY END.
In the Winter of ’73, n man attempt ed to cross the frozen surface of the Merrimac. When about ten feet from the shore he broke through. A work man in a saw-mill near by seized a plank and thrust it ouc to the drown ing man. Unfortunately one end of the plank was covered with ice, and that end the workman, in his excite ment, had extended to the struggling man. He caught hold of it several times and tried to pull himself up to the solid ice. But at each attempt his hand slipped and he fell back into the water. At last he cried out in the agony of terror: “For mercy’s sake don’t reach me the icy end of the plank!” A perplexed student once went to a college professor for help in a certain study. “I am willing to help you,” the professor said, with chilling cour tesy, "but of course you know that my time is fully occupied, and I can’t give special attention to every student. What is your difficulty?'’ The student stated what had per plexed him. “Oh, that’s nothing,” an swered the professor. “You don’t need my help to get out of that difficulty. Still, when you really need assistance I certainly will give it to you. But you won’t forget that my time is valuable.” The student bowed his thahks and departed, without receiving the help he really needed. The icy end of the plank was held out to him. From that day he bitterly though unjustly classed all the college professors together, as cold and unsympathetic. He carried this prejudice through his college course because he had been denied a little sympathy. A few years ago a young minister and his wife began their work in a growing Western town. Their people were attentive and courteous, the salary was ample, and a new church edifice was erected. But in less than a year the minister and his wife sought a smaller church and a lower salary. A friend, surprised at the change, asked: “What was the matter? Didn’t the climate suit you?” “Perfectly.” “Well, wasn't your church harmo nious?” “Yes.” “You had a fair salary?” “Yes, more than I get now.” “Why did you leave, then?” “Because my wife and I were tired of living in a moral refrigerator. Every one was kind, but it was a kindness wrapped up in ice, as if they were afraid it would spoil. We had help enough, but no real sympathy.” The icy end of the plank had been extended to the minister and his wife. ---— A CURIOUS BEAR STORY. Mr. George Swift, a ranchman in the < muul Valley, tells a story which shows how unenviable is the life of the stock raiser in that wilderness. A short time ago, Mr. Swift let his three-year-old daughter ride upon his horse, and after she had ridden about forty rods from home lie lifted her off the animal and told her to run home. On returning about an hour later he found that the little one had not reached home, and going to the place where he had last seen her, he found bear tracks in the sand. A posse was formed, and all night was spent in searching for the lost child. In the morning, as the searchers were passing a swampy spot where the undergrowth was thick, they heard her voice. They called to the little girl to come out of the bushes, but she replied that the bear would not let her. The men then crept through the brush, and when near the spot heard a splash in the water, which the child said was the bear. They found her standing upon a log, extending half way across the swamp, and it seemed as though the bear had undertaken to cross the swamp on the log, and, being pursued, left rlie child, and got away as rapidly as possible. She had received some scratches about the face, arms and legs, and her clothes were almost torn from her body, but the bear had not bitten her to hurt her, only the marks of her teeth being found upon h£r back, where he had taken hold of her clothes to carry her. The child told her res ----XK„X X1_1.. 1 1 , l '/v»v‘u vtiv vvui tiuu J>Ul I1CI UUWU occasionally to rest, and would put nose up to her face, whereupon she would slap him and he would hang his head by her side and purr and rub against her like a cat. Her father asked her if she had been cold during the night, and she told him the old bear lay beside her and put his “arms” around her and kept her warm.—Glas gow Herald.

AN IMPOSTOR. An extraordinary case of imposture, said to have been successfully prac ticed for twenty years, is reported from Whitstable. “A woman named Frances Wood, otherwise Janny Jor dan, when about fifteen years old took to her bed, and gradually grew worse in appearance until her face was com pletely blackened, with the exception of a white mark down the centre of the nose. She lost the use of her whole body, except one arm, and could take only brandy and water and light dainties. Her case called forth much commiseration, and elicited substantial aid from every part of England. Be sides the local practitioners she baffled the questions and skill of three medical men of standing and repute from other districts, and has received relief from both the parchial authorities and the Whitstable charity trustees. Her piety and resigned patience were talked of as most edifying and “beau tiful,” and a few years ago she was the subject of a long article in Faithful Words, wherein her unparalleled suf fering and perfect resignation were re corded. Hearing on Saturday week that her brother hud been sentenced to three months' imprisonment, she suddenly recovered her natural hue, and when discovered by her mother said, “I felt as if something gave me three raps on the head, and a thrill passed through me.” She afterward sent for a person who had often visited her, and confessed that during all these years she had acted the hypocrite, and had been perfectly able to use her limbs all the time. She had systemat ically and gradually discolored her features with burned cork, which she kept in a box with a candle beneath her . bed. These marks she hastily wiped off with a llannel when she heard the postman telling her mother of the imprisonment of her brother. She died on Wednesday at the age of thirty-five. Her mother declares that site was quite unaware of her daugh ter’s deception.—Pall Mall Gazette. THE MAN WHO SWEARS. And just one word more, says Bur dette: Suppose you are given to a habit of profanity. You enter into conversation with a man who never swears: in other words, a gentleman. By and bv vou beerin to nerceive that. lie is the superior man. Your remarks have a tame, flat, feeble sound to your own ears. Your cheeks begin to burn with the sense of your friend’s excel lence. Your pert little damns sound rough and coarse and vulgar as they are. They begin to drop out of your sentences, ashamed to remain in the company of honest English words, until, as you discover that you are carrying on your part of the conver sation without swearing you feel eas ier, and your intellectual statue is in creased by a foot. Just observe this, my boy, and see if I am not right. But you will rip out some time. Oh, yes, in some way you will. I know some good men—some of the best in the world—who will confound it. and even dog-gone it, and in New England even a deacon has been known, under a terrible strain, to condemn it. Don’t swear. It isn’t any evidence of smartness or worldly wisdom. Any fool can swear. And a great many fools do. I, my son? Ah, if I could only gather up all the useless, uncalled for, ineffective swears I have dropped along the pathway of my life, I know 1 would remove stumbling blocks from many inexperienced feet, and my own heart would be lighter by a ton than it is to-day. But if you are go ing to be a fool just because other men have been, oh, my son, what an awful, what a colossal, what a hope less fool you will be! --—♦ ♦ IN REGARD TO DIET. There is one inherent weakness in the creed of vegetarians, and that is, that they cannot get on without ani mal food namely, milk and eggs. Of course the fact stares vegetarians in the face that Nature has provided food for all young mammals, and that is a very awkward and untoward fact. Vegetarians,|however, in the face of it, have thought it wise to include milk as an article of vegetarian diet. But milk cannot be gotten without cows, and as the consumption of milk may be expected to increase, and is said as a matter ot fact to increase, where lit tie or no other animal food is taken the number of cows must be expected to increase under a vegetarian regime; but then there must be calves, and these will grow up and become cows and bulls, and cover the whole surface of the globe in time if they are not killed; but one of the great arguments of vegetarianism is the cruelty of kill ing animals. Nobody, of course, de sires that any animal shall be killed but with the minimum of cruelty, but it would seem that if the vegetarians yield on the subject of milk, they must also yield on the subject of killing ani mals, and if animals must be killed, it is difficult to see why they should not be eaten, seeing that there is no doubt ; they make excellent food. Milk, there fore, seems to us to be the vegetarian’s stumbling block, and until he throws milk overboard, vegetarianism has lit tle in it but a name. A rooster ut Verbena, Ala., has two tails and three legs. This bird really has something to crow over; but the average rooster is very absurd. Some of them have been known to cackle when a modest hen lays an egg, thus robbing the weaker sex of all glory.

Hut the Sun is written for the inhabitants of the earth; this same strip of intelligence would girdle the globe twenty-seven or twenty-eight times. If every buyer of a copy of the Sun during the past year has spent only one hour over it, and if his wife or his grandfather has spent an other hour, this newspaper in 1883 has atTored the human race thirteen thousand years of steady reading, night and day. It is only by little calculations like these that you can form any idea of the circulation of the most popular ot American newspapers, or ot its influence on the opinions and actions of American men and women. The Sun is, and will continue to be, a uews paper which tells the truth without fear of con sequences, which gets at the facts no matter how much the process costs, which presents tie* news of all the world without waste of words and in the most readable shape, which is work ing with all its heart for the cause of honest government, and which therefore believes that the Republican party must go, and must go in this coming year of our Lord, 1884. If you know the Sun, you like it already, and you will read it with accustomed diligence and profit during what is sure to be the most inter esting year in its history.
