THE OLD CARTMAN.
I have a mind to tell a little story.
That it ia brief may be seen at a glance;
that it ia trite I moat emphatically avow.
If tho reader despiaea it because it ia the
first, or the editors of the Era reject it
lor the reason ol the laxt, then I w ill es
chew truth in the future and (devote my
self to the elaboration of lie into chap
ter and the purest fiction into volumes
of seventeen hundred page each.
With this underatandiuir, I proceed at
once to remark, that five years ago, or
thereabouts, John Ainsley or "rap
Ainsloy," aa he was familiarly called
was the owner of a handcart, and earned
a living convvjinp miscellaneous parcels
trotn one part ol the city to another and
receiving therefor the reasonable remun
eration of fifty conta per load. To desig
nate the occupation in the poorest lan
guage possible, he wa a hand-cart man,
and when not employed, could always be
found during wording hour at the cor
ner of Montgomery and Ualiforma streets.
Hi hair and long beard were quite gray
and hi limbs feeble: and if he could not
hove quite as heavy a load through the
deep sand or up the steep grade above
him as the stalwart Teuton on the oppo
site corner, thereby losing many a job and
many a dollar, all the light loada in the
neighborhood fell to hia lot and kind
hearted men not unfrequcntly traveled a
square or two out of their way to give an
easy job to'Tap Ainsley"
1' our years ago last September, (I rec
ollect the month, for I had a note of fonr
thousand dollars to pay, and waa compell
ed to do somj pretty sharp financiering
to moot it,) having two or three dozen vol
umes of books to trsnrfer to my lodging,
I gave "Pap Ainsloy" the task of trans
portation. Arriving at my room just aa
the old gentleman had depoaited the last
armful on the table and observing that the
old man looked considorcbly fatigued af
ter cliinping three flights of stairs five or
six times, I invited him to take a glaaa of
brandy a bottle of which I usually kept
in my room, for medical soporific purpose.
Although grateful for the invitation, he
politely declined. I urged but he wa
uillexiLle. I was astonished.
Do you never drink," said I.
"Very seldom," he replied, dropping in
to a chair, at my request, and wiping the
perspiration from his forchead-
" Well, if you drink at all" I Iniisted,
"you will not find iu the next twelve
mouths as fuir an excuse for indulging,
fur you appear fatigued and scracely abi
"To be frank,' said the old man, I do
not drink now. I have not tasted Intox
icating liquor for fifteen years aince"
"Since when!" I enquired, thought
lessly, observing hia hesitation.
The old man told me. Sixteen year
ago he waa a well-to-do farmer, near Sy
racuse, New York. lie had but out
child a daughter. While attending
boarding school in that city the girl, then
about sixteen years of age, formed an at
tachment for a young physician. Ac

with auian he had never seen, and reuiove
ing her from school, despatched a note to
the young gallant, with somewhat point
ed information that his presence in the
neighborhood of Ainsley farm would not
meet a favor. The reader of course sur

to think of tho sad st ry he had told me.

following, a gentleir.an having purclimed
a small marble-top tahlo at an auction
room opposito, proffered to the old man
the job of conveying it to his residence
on Stockton street. Not wishing to ar
coinpany the carrier, he had selected tho
face probably giving the best assurance
of tlie careful dolivcry of the purchase.
Furnished tho number of the house, the
old curt n inn after a pretty trying stnurgle
with the steep ascent of California street
reached his destination, and deposited the
tahlo in the hall. Lingering a moment.
the lady did not seem to surmise the rea

"Very well, I will nay you," said the la
dy, stepping into an adjoining room.
bhe returned, nnd stating Hint alio bad
no small coin in tho house, handed the
man a twenty dollar piece. He could not
not make the change.
"Never mind 1 will come again to
morrow, said he turning to go.
"No, no," replied the lady glancing at
his white locks and trembling limbs, "I
will not permit you to put yourself to so
much trouble," and she handed the coin
to Bridget with instructions to see if she
could get it changed at one of the atorc
or markets iu tho neighborhood.
"Step into the parlor until tho girl re
turns; the air is chilly and you must be
cold," continued the fudy kindly. "Come"
she added, as he looked at his rongh at
tire end hesitated; "there is a good fire
in the grate and no one there but the chil
dren." "It is somcwliat chilly ," replied the old
man, following her into the parlor and tak
ing a seat near the fire.
"Perhaps I may find some silver in tho
house," said the lady, leaving the room,
"for I fear Uridget will not succeed in get

"Come hero, little one," anid tho old
man holding out his hands roaxingly to
tho younger of the two children a little
girl six years of gn. "Conic I love lit

watching him with curiosity from behind

the cartinan ,

gathered in hia eyes, I once had a little

How to tell Bad Eggs.
Of the many ways to tell bad eggs,
know of only one that I can put entire
'If an egg will float it is had,' say one.
'If it is warm at both ends, look out for
it,' aay another. 'If it has not a clear
look when you hold it against a strong
light, have a care, says a third, ana soon
half a dozen ways besldo. Now any one
that haa tried tlie first way, knows that
bail egg will sometimes sink; and as to
the second plan, it is often dillkult to tell
in a fresh egg which is the warm end;
and as to the plan of looking through an
egg, I would really like to know what
can be seen in thu operation. Hut
The trucway to tell good iuit is to put
them in a pail of water, and if they are
good they will lie m tlteit iidei , always;
if had thev will stsnd on their small ends.
the largo end always uppinost, unless
they ha7e been shaken considerably,
when they will stand either end up.
Therefore a bad egg can be told by the
way it rests in the water always end up,
never on its sido. Any egg that lies flat,
is good to eat and can be depended vjxm

ed he had Die tap in hia hand, but wbea
he got down to the cellar every drop of

Then he went to tho dairy snd found
enough cream left to fill the churn again,
and an he began to churn, for butt-Mr they
must have at dinner. When he hnd
churned a bit, he remembered that their
milking row was still shut up in tlie byre,
and hadn't a bit to eat or a drop to drink
all morning all morning, though tho sun
was high. Then all at once he thought
'tws too far to take her down to the

thatched with sods, and a line crop of
grass was growing there. Now their
house lay close up againet a steep down,
and he thought if be hnd laid a plank a
cross to the tlintch at the back he d easily
get to the cow.
Hut still ho couldn't leave the churn,
for there was his little babe crawling a
bout on tho floor, and 'if I leave it,' he
thought, 'the child Is sure to upset it.'
So hu took the churn on his bark and
went out with It; but then he thought
he'd better first water the cow before he
turned her out on tho thatch; so he took
up a buokct to draw water out of the well,
but as ho stooped down at the well's
brink, all the cream ran out of tlie churn
over his shoulders, and so an down to th
- Now it was near dinner time, and he
hadn't even got the butter yet, so lie
thought he'd Lest boil tho porridge, and
lilleti the pot with water and hung it over
the fire. When he bad done that, he
thought the cow might perhaps fall olT
the thntch and break her legs or neck.'
Ho he got up on the house to tie her up.
One end of the rope he msdo fast to the
row's neck, and the other he slipped
down the chimney and tied around his
own thigh, and hu had tn make haste, for
the wati r now began to boil in the pot and
be bad still to grind the oatmeal.
Ho he began to irriud kwny. but while
ho was hard at it, down fell the cow olT
the house-top altor all, and as she fell,
she draggvd the man up the chimney by
the rope. There he stuck fast, and ss
for the row, she hung' half way down the
wall, swinging between heaven and earth
for she could neither get down nor up.
And now the goody had waited seven
lengths and seven breadths for her hus
band to come and call her homo to din
ner, but never a call they had. At last,
she thought she d waited long enough
and went home. But w hen she got there
she saw the cow banging in such an ugly
pluco, she ran up and tho rope in two
with her scythe. Hut aa she did this
down cinne her husband out of the chim
ney; and so when his old dame came in

standing on his head Iu tho porridge pot.
