BY ECCE FRATER. CHAPTER VII. When we closed our hist chapter, Mr. Lorenzo was about to divulge his plans for the fu lure of the boy, and now we have them. "It k my intention to keep Willie to wait on me and my lillle wife, and when he gets old enough to marry lie can many, but he must not marry until I say so, or I will . drive him off the next day; but. if he slays at home and works as he should on the farm and marries to suit me, I will keep him right here as long as tve live, and when we die, I will give him this house and lot and 20 acres of land, and the rest shall go to my nephew John. There is no use of talking about me mining through with what I have earned in a foolish way, am able to take care of my self, you see, and you, Mrs, Lorenzo. It would be nrettv work for me to send that boy A t off to school and pay his way and have no one to wait on me in my declining years. Don't you see that my plan is the best?" "Not exactly," said the wife, your plan would be pleasant for s, but would be a great in justice to the boy, and I fear an insult to God." "Ah 1 you always put a re ligious phase on every thine. but let mo tell you if wo don't look after ourselves no one else will." "I think, husband, that the best way to look after ourselves, in looking after others less fortunate than wo. We must not bp selfish, nor do damage to others, and perhaps to genera tions yet unborn, by our course conduct. ' The conversation was broken off by the appearance of a coup le of neighbor women who call ed at Mr. Lorenzo's to spend a few hours visiting. "Why, bless my soul and body, if Mr. and Mrs. Lorenzo ain't in the room here sparking like two old lovers, and how-do-you-do? I am so glad to see you; we just 0, excuso me! This is sister Smith, I al most forgot to introduce you." Thus broke in and out old Mrs. OreybiH, the veritable gos sip of the town. Taking a seat and catching her breath she began to ask about everything in particular, giving no one else hardly "a chance to put a word in edgeways. "Mrs. Lorenzo, you look so well, you must be enjoying re.' markably good health ; and Mr Lorenzo finds time to set down and have a social chat with his wife ? How I wish Mr. Grey mu would no tnat. lie never has time to say a word hardly, and 1 sometimes wish that if I was a gal again, I'd never mar ry ; but then he is a good pro vider, and with the exception of his crossness a very good man. Where is your boy Willie; I wish he were here to bring me a drink of water, it is so handy to have a waiter; we have a boy at our house and I just, tell you I get an abundance of work out of him, but he is so sneaking that I have to watch him to keep him from stealing the su gar and, preserves. I suppose all servant boys are just alike, but where did you get your boy? Yes, yes, I will have a drink, if you please, but I did not intend for you to wait on me. Where did you say you got your boy?' "He is my sister's son," re marked Mrs. Lorenzo. "Ah, I believe that I heard that before. He was not in that fuss down town when those boys were arrested, was he." "O, no, Mrs. Greybill; Willie is a good boy and never hangs around town. He prefers to stay at home and study." fflT n 1 "ies, mese uoys are very saintly when in our presence. but just watch them when they think you don't see them." "Willie is just as true be- ii urn our oacic as Deiore our face," replied Mrs. Lorenzo. This last remark was uttered with a kind of tone Mrs. Grey- bill understood to mean that re flections cast upon Willio were not acceptable, and so she turn ed her attention towards Mrs Smith, who up to this time had not seen a place for "her say to come in. "Why, Mrs. Smith 1 Why don t you say something; these folks are real home-folks, and you need not bo afraid to talk. Please let me fix that ribbon on your head, it is out of place. Hasn't Mrs. Smith got a nice head of hair, if she was a little more particular about putting it up fashionable. There now, that's nice." Mr. Lorenzo, at this moment, asked to be excused, and went out of the house to get a little fresh air after such a gust of female fussy eloquence. Mrs. Smith was a rather mod est little woman, and being a stranger in the place, had gone out for the first time with her officious hear neighbor, Mrs. Greybill. A momentary lull had taken place by the depar ture of Mr. Lorenzo, when Mrs. Greybill took a fresh start. "I suppose you heard about the run-a-way of Sam. Jones and Mary Vorhees, they were pretty sharp about it; and Sallie Herondon is about to get mar ried to a fellow from York State; she will drive her ducks to a poor market, I guess. There's a fuss up between Marigold and his wife, and it is supposed that he is in the habit of whip ping her. The word is out that Mr. Conrad, whoso wife and girls put on so much style, is about to break up. I never lived in as moan a place for tattling in all my life, you can hear everything true and un true." Thus Mrs. Greybill went on until she left, just like every other tattler. "Wife," said Mr. Lorenzo, that evening, "I will just Ml yon what I think of Mrs Grev. bill." TO BK CONTINUiCD. Hon. A. II.'

Such was the exclamation of one of the wisest 'of men, when-: reviewing his past life, arid alter recounting his many honors and acquirements. Al though this m:iu had attained the highest ( honors, and was surrounded by everything that could conduce to his happiness, and, though his life had been spent in. that way which is con sidered by the world as most honorable, yet this is his con usion.."V'.: : j :'v In summing up his posses sions ami attainments he looks upon them with a feeling of disappointment; he is dissatis fied with his life's work. So it is with all. His words have been re-echoed by millions in the subsequent ages. Those who have (been most successful in life), reached the summit of earthly glory, and have been looked up to with feelings of envy by their less fortunate fellows, all at the closa of life when considering their pas history, have made this confes sion. Byron, whom Kings delight ed to honor, who, in the lan guage of the poet, "from every cup of joy drank draughts that might have quenched the thirst of millions," whoso genius has been described as of such lofty order that he seemed to stoop to touch that which other men scarce reached by the greatest exertion, viewed his life with sensations of bitter dis I i T 1 1 1 appointment, mueeu it is so with all conditions of mankind They aro dissatisfied with tneir lives, wuii uieir ac tions, and with themselves, Every one ha? his ideal ; some thing by which he measures his actions. No one is satisfied with his present attainments or character. His ideal is ever above the real. It is that which he is ever striving for, yet never quite reaches. Owing to tho different train- mg, education, and siirround- of men, thero is a great difference between these mod els. One person's limit of per fection may be but the starting point of another's. It is not to be supposed that the ignorant savages will aspire to the same of excellence that the enlightened Christian does. If brought in contact with civilzed people, he may see and admire the virtues that incite his more enlightened brother, yot ho nev er hopes to attain to that de gree of perfection. It is far be yond his ideal. He thinks it impossible for him to reach that which so far . surpasses his owu standard. Yet the savage has his ideal, though it be but a remove from his , own debased self ; though it be deformed and lideous iu the eyes of enligh tened humanity, it is his con ception of perfection. Thus it is with every one. No one is satisfied with himself. It is a natural instinct implanted with in the soul of man by tho Cre ator lor a noble purpose. It is well that it is so. By this sense of imperfection, ho is urged to make greater efforts, He is led o strive for solf-improvomp',. What would be tho result if man were satisHod r'ith what ever attainment 'll0 chanced to ossess? Supos,, this to bo the CaSO WJ''.., ft,,,. fi,.flf miwnfa VIII 111 Will VlltU were ejected from the garden of jih'ii. what would be tho eon-1 dition of the world, to-day ? Where would bo tho. advance-'fruit; ments and discoveries that havo been made in the' arts and sci ences? Where would bo the many inventions, tho steamship, tho railroad, the telegraph, and t)o various" kinds of machinery used for a thousand purposes ? . In deed there would bo no such thing as art or science. Uut man would be engaged now. as ho was then ' in tilling the soil in a rude and imnerfect man ner, and tending his flock, sat isfied if he but procured enough to cover his body or to supply the cravings of hunger. But God so constituted the mind of man that he is never content with his eflorts, so he is even striving after something higher, reaching after perfection. CARLETON. The GoW Hill (Nev.) News, says : " An Irishman, a resident of this city, noted for his wit on all occasions and also for his successful attack on tho tiger, was proceeding homo the other evening and when he had reached the Divide, was stop ped by some foot-pads and told to 'hold up his hands.' The robbers knew he had made a large winning and got off with it, and preceded him for the purpose of waylaying him. Pat did not scare worth a cent, and when stopped, quietly ask ed the robbers what they want ed, fhey answered, 'we want your money!' Pat, quietly lighting his dudeeu, said : '0, murther, murther, but ye fellers are awful thick to-night.' 'Aw ful thick,' said one of the rob bers, 'what do you mean ?' 'I mane,' said Pat, 'this is the fourth time I was stopped since I loft Virginny.' One of the men, disgusted with himself to think that others of the profes sion had got in ahead of him, struck Pat on the neck and kicked him saying: 'Get out of here or I will blow the top of your head 'off.' Pat did 'get' willingly, and arrived safely at home with $700 in coin in his pocket. That One Vote. "Cnlibnn " the special correspondent of tlio Cin cinnati Daily Enquirer, writes from Columbus, Ohio, under date of Oc tober 23, 1873, as follows: "According to a story which I heard yesterday, thero is one man hero, an applicant for appointment, who ought to be preserved as a sort ol political amulet, just for luck, by tho party. That man is Captain Reynolds, and tho place ho wants is Warden of tho Penitentiary, Part of the story is historically cor rect, I know, and tho other portion I am tt98ured is authentic. In 1830. when Governor Allen waa elected to tho Sennte, it was by a single vote. Tho man who cavo that Min ority himself was elected by a ma jority of one. He was tho member from Ross county; and now it turns out that the single vote that placed him in the Lcglislaturo was cast by this same Captain Rey nolds, who had been in tho county ust a year ana a day. He was challenged at the polls, and estab lishing his residence there ho was enabled thus to cast the single bal- ot that gave us Allen as United Slates Senator. Such ft man is certainly valuable to any garty, and it siionui io seen that the family is icrpotiiateu. l I !..!

Calling a Boy in the Morning. '''The Connecticut editor who ivrote'the following, evidently knew' what ho was, talking about: "Calling up. a boy ! in the morning can hardly .be classed under tho head of "pastimes," especially il the boy is fond of exercise, the day beiore. And it is a little sin gular that the next hardest thing to getting a boy out of bed is getting him into it. There is rarely a mother who ia a success at rousing a boy. All mothers know this, so do their boys. And yet the moth er seems to go at it in the right way."- She opens the Btair door and insinuatingly observes: 'Johnny.' There is no response. 'Johnny.' Still no response. Then there is a short, sharp 'John' followed a moment later by a long and emphatic 'John Henry.' A grunt from the up per regions signifies that an impression had been made, and the mother encouraged, adds, 'You had better be getting down to your breakfast, young man, before I come up there, an' give you something you'll feel.' This so startles the young man that he immediately goes to sleep again. And the operation has to be repeated several times. A father knows nothing about the trouble. He merely opens his mouth a3 a soda bottle ejects its cork, and the 'Jt)hn Henry' that cleaves the air of that stairway goes into that boy like electric ity, and pierces the deepest re cesses of his nature. And he pops out of that bed and into his clothes, and down the stairs, with a promptness that is commendable. It is rarely a boy allows himself to disregard the paternal summons. About once a year is believed to bo as often as is consistent with the rules of health. He saves his father a great many steps by his thoughtfulness." Ingenuity of Counterfeiters. A very ingenious mode is re sorted to by counterfeiters to make a profit by a little manip ulation of genuine bills. The plan is in this wise : Take, say, ten $5 bills, lay one on the oili er a quarter of an inch below the tops, something after the fashion of pasting in tho pro cess of making paper bags. When they aro all thus neatly laid off, a knife is run through them,, and, of course, from the first bill a quarter of an inch will be cut off, a half inch from the second, three-quarters from the third, an inch from the fourth, and so to the tenth bill, from tho bottom of which there is taken a very small portion, nothing more than the bordor. This bill is left as it is, but to all the others the parts taken off are neatly pasted od, and tho result is that there will be eleven bill? all perfect, except a small rjduction in the size of c.'dch. Of course tho operator makes livo dollars in every ten. The amount taken from each is so small, and tho bills being generally all of one kind, it is a very difficut matter to detect them. It is a very neat ar rangement to cheat geoplo who aro not in habit of giving ta bank bills a very close exami nation. . Mu. J. B.

BEET-SUGAR. Political Independence—Saccharine Servitude. The, sugars Imported into the United States during last year, ex ceeded in declared value the amount exported by $30,070,037. Now for the last seven yeri France, Prus sia" and Austria hare sent abroad no money for sugar, but have eup plied themsclvei frombeeti. Their example is being rapidly followed by Russia, Holland, England, and evfen by Scandinavians. The Uni Ud States brag that they are ahead of the times. Will they remain be hind them, as they clearly are, in the matter of sugar? If sugar beets thrive all over Europe, will they not do well in America? Experi ments in beet sugar, as at North ampton, ,Masi Fond du Luc and Black Hawk, Wia, have" proved ' failures, but ten times as many suc cessful trials abroad preceeded final success, and Americans may learn by the errors of generations. Three notable bect-sugar facto ries are now making full proof of an industry as yet new in America ; one in Illinois and two in Califor nia. The Illinois establishment is in Frecport, those on tho Pacific slope are in Sacramonto and Alva rado. Tho two latter have been at work two years, the other only one. Tho smallest of them haa a capacity for working fifty tons of beets daily and u million and a half pounds of sugar were turned but last year in California. The prospers of all three establishments arc good. Let them prove a success, the beet fac tories Trill multiply. The farmers of Nebraska will learn a nsw trick in dodging high freights. Among 40,000 immigrants already planted thore, not a few of them attracted to the Burlington and Missouri River Railroad . land on the three Blues by ten yean' credit, with nothing of principal payable for four years, many have raised beets for foreign factories, well know how to furnish them best and cheapest for Nebraska factories. The refuse ?iolp is everywhere worth for stock ceding, one-half as much as the original beets.. European beet-su-v gar manufacture has all grown up In a generation. Nor is it unlikely that he who reads theso linos Tmay livo to see Nebraska self-supplied with sugar from its own boot beds, and then that be may live a good while after that! PROF. J. D. BUTLER.
