All silver-paved by shining stars,
But, oh, how 8wlft, when ncars the day,
She hides behind Morn's golden bar-
Then how the little birds awake,
Pour tides of song upon the air.

From dew-bathed petals everywhere.

Growth walks abroad, unhindered, free,
And golden glory Alls the sight,

At Catfish Crossing
It was a rainy day 'ait 'Catfish Cross
ing. Quite a few of €he Crossing's
most veracious 'citfczeirs were in ses
sion at Grimstki's grocery. Those
meetings at OrSnrsdHs /grocery are
never in executive 'session. They are
open and above hoard. Any one may
sit by and bear them. Frequently
strangers win are passing through,
whether traveling tor sileasure or go
ing on across into Jersey, tarry a while
sol's grocery.. If'there is a ses
sion of Crossing 'citizens on, these
strangers wOl mecessarily pause and
listen. And often a took and a listen
will inspire some one of them to
throw in a little thing of his own on
the subject in hand, or perhaps on
some other subject.
Gn this particular rainy day at Cat
fish Crossing the visiting stranger at
Orimsol's grocery was a tall man with
a blue umbrella and a large Roman
nose. Thre expression of his face was
amiable, "but Ms .trousers were very
short He looked like a man who
would teU the truth ff.it was necessary,
but the sliade af his nose was prima
facie evidence that the had never been
overpmnrpt in saying "No." An
ordinary listener to the proceedings of
this session at the grocery might have
been wise enough to suggest affidavits
as appropriate things to go with what
he heard, but this visiting stranger
gave every (cmtward evidence of en
tire confidence in the credibility of the
session seemed as firmly fixed in his
belief in it as he was in his belief
that the big pitcher :at the far end of
the counter ibad cider in it.
Old 'Bijer Crump, from the cracker
barrel, said there wasn't no kind o'
doubt of ft, 'cause he had tr|ed it.
"But let me warn you!" said the
stranger. "B^Ware. o' nigh-sighted
This made "everybody prick up his
ears and look around a little queer
but Sugar-tooth' Bill Fritchey, sitting
on the nail keg, cracked two or three
of his fingers and said:
"Yes!" exclaimed the stranger,
hunching himself up on the counter
and glancing longingly down at the
pitcher at the other end. "Well, I
should say it was yes!! Go ask Uncle
David Breckendarter! Go over to the
vale o' Pochuck, if you want to know,
and ask Uncle David Breckendarter!"
Nobody got up to go, and the
"Uncle.. David Breckendarter," said
he, "keeps swads o' chickens. Swads
of 'em. Not so long ago he read in
the paper about -this here egg forcin'
meal to make hens lay whether they
wanted to or not, and he sent and got
a big lot of it. Then, about that time,
Job Jeffers, who'd been liired man for
Uncle David for three years, took it
in his head that he'd like to see more
o* the world' than he thought he could
git a glimpse of in the sweet vale o'
Pochuck, and so he hired out to
man down at Sprout Hill. But it hap
pened that another chap comes along
lookin' for work jest about then, and
Uncle David hired him. He was a
A loll having come in the proceed
ings, the stranger spoke and said:
"I see you use pine sawdust for
beddin' dtrwn your horses over here,
and there ain't nothin' better."
Squire Blllduff, who sat on the wood
box, said no, there wasn't.
"There ain't no doubt, neither," con
tinued the stranger, "that, this here
egg forcin' meal some one has con
jured up for makin' hens lay whether
they want to or not is built on the right

says to the man:
'Beddin' these bosses reg'tar?'
sure! the man says.
""Sawdust?' says Uncle David.
""Every night.' says tbe man.
"'It's extraordinary singular wliere
they kick it to," says Uncle David, and
"Uncle David took a hammer—"
he hitched up and went over to the
choppin' after a load o' wood.
"It went along and it went along,
and then Uncle David discovered some
thin' that made him stare and pon
der. He found the hosses was pullin*
their hay out o' the mangers and
twistin' it around in the sing-larest
kind of a way on the floor. Makin*
reg'lar nests out of it, so it seemed,
and you might say squattin' in 'em.
'Pears to me like as if these ding
hosses o' mine must be goin' crazy!'
says Uncle David. 'Kickin' their saw
dust beddin' out o' sight and makin'
their own beddin' out o' the hay they
ought to be eatin'I' he says. "What
ails you, anyhow?' he says to 'em,
and had hard work to make 'em come
out and be hitched.
"While Uncle David was hitchin'
of 'em, givin' 'em a dig and a kick
every now and then, and I'm afeared
cussin' a little, he was sb all-eonsumin'
mad at 'em for the queer ways they
had fell into, Aunt Sally come to the
"'David!' she hollers to him.
'What?' Uncle David hollers back.
'I've been gatherin' the eggs!'
Aunt Sally hollers.
"'Well,' Uncle David hollers back.
'There ain't no law ag'in it, is theref
'No,' hollers Aunt Sally. 'But
come and see 'em. They skeer me.'
"So Uncle David, grumblln' and
growlin', went to the house to see what
sort o' capers the eggs was cuttin'
"'There!' says Aunt Sally, p'intin'
to a dozen or two of eggs in a basin
on the table, 'Them's 'em. What has
struck 'em?' she says.
"The eggs was as yaller, most, as
a sunflower, and had a grain in 'em
like a board.
'Sally,' says Uncle David, starin'
at 'em a minute. 'They're wood, ain't
'Pears to me so,' says Aunt Sally.
"Then Uncle David took a hammer,
and after hittin' one o' the eggs a
couple o' hard whacks, it split, and,
sure enough, the shell was wood, and
thick, at that, with not a thing where
the yelk ought to been but a little
pine knot! And that's the way they
all was. Uncle David looked at Aunt
Sally, and Aunt Sally looked at Uncle
David. Then somethin' seemed to
break in onto Uncle David's mind, and
he just jumped and hollered.
"'Great rocks a-bustin'!' he hollers,
'Where's that hired man?'
Uncle David rushed out and met
the hired man comin' from the barn.
"'Here!' he says to him, grabbin'
him by 'the arm. "What's .ailin'. o' you?
Can't you see?'
"And then the hired man up and
'No,' he says. 'I can't see par
tie'lar good, 'cause I'm about as nigh,
sighted as they make 'em,' he says.
'And you've been beddin' the horses
down -with that egg forcin' mea! in
stead o' pine sawdust, and stuflln' the
hens with pine sawdust instead o'
egg forcin' meal!' Uncle David, hol
lers, jumpln' and cussin.' "And the
hosses has eat that beddin' till they've
took to makin' nests out o' their hay,
and the hens has been stuffin' them
selves with sawdust till they're laying
"Then Uncle David discharged the
nigh-sighted man on the spot, and I've
dropped in here jest a purpose to warn
GrimsoJ rose from the pile of calicc
he was lolling on and walked, with
a yawn, to where the pitcher sat.
Squire Billduff, Old 'Bijer' and Sugar
lip Bill Fritchey followed him. The
benevolent stranger looked and list
ened for any sound or sign that might
indicate that he was expected to fol
low, too. None came. He slipped
from the counter and exclaimed:
"You are a cold., ungrateful and
doubtin' generation over here in Penn
sylvania! .That's what you are! I'll
beta farm, by cats! that when Gabriel
comes and blows his horn he'll hav&
to whack you over the head with it
before you'll believe it's him!"
The stranger went out, and Squire
Billduff, remarking that if that Jer
seyman had lived in the days of An
anias and Sapphira, Ananias and Sap
phira wouldn't have met with that
sudden death, sat down and proceeded
to. tell, in circumstantial detail, how
he had killed four deer at one shot
onoe, and the gun was loaded so
heavy it kicked him over and how,
in falling, he threw up his hands just
as two wild turkeys were flying over,
both of which he caught by the legs
and how he never knew until he got
op that he had fallen on three rabbits
and killed them.—Ed Mott in Phila'
ILLUSION WELL KEPT UP.
Midshipman's Self-Sacrifice a Matter
In "Reminiscences of the Old Navy*
is related an amusing incident of a
visit of the United States ship Preble
to Port Mahon in 1842. At a fancy
dress ball one of the midshipment
went attired as an old boot. He had
ingeniously contrived a tolerably fair
imitation of a boot out of barrel hoops
and canvas. Getting into it, he man
aged to hold it up by means of straps,
the sole resting on rollers, while a
couple of slight holes cut near the
top of the leg enabled him to navi
gate the balroom and steer clear of
posts and wall flowers. He did not
dance in costume, although he made
brave efforts to induce some fair
woman to accept him—the excuse be
ing that his foot was too large. The
most remarkable thing about this mid
shipman, however, and the topic that
was most widely discussed was the
fact that he refused to allow his iden
tity to become known. This became
simply marvelous when refreshments
were served. Wine flowed like water
and a delicious sausage, called soben
sados, made exclusively by the Ma
honese, were offered unstintedly. Th
fortitude of this midshipman in
fusing, or, rather, being unable to ea
or drink was widely commented upo
and aroused the sympathies of th
other guests. Finally some of th
ladies and gentlemen insisted on pour
ing wine into the peepholes of the
boot and then thrusting sausages intc
the same apertures, having a vague
idea that somehow or other the drink
and food might reach the self-denying
prisoner within and he could drink
the wine and munch the sobensados
in his calm though somewhat heated
retreat. There seems to have been
no question about the wine reaching
him—although probably not in a
drinkable way—but the sausages
stuffed into the peepholes completely
cut off his line of vision. His hands
were engaged inholding up the straps,
so he endeavored to tear the sausages
out with his teeth. But they were
strong and resisted all his efforts tc
pull in or push out, so that he was
compelled to heave to under short
sail and flounder around the ballroom
very much like a ship without a rud

had to give up social life entirely, as
my health was completely broken

Catarrh Causes Female Diseases.
America is the land of nervous women.'
The great majority of nervous women aro
so because they are suffering from some
form of female disease. By far the great
est number of female troubles are caused
directly by catarrh. These women despair'
of recovery. Female trouble is so common,
so prevalent, that they accept it as almost
inevitable. The greatest obstacle in the
way of recovery is that they do not under
stand that it is catarrh which is the source
of their illness.
In female complaint, ninety-nine cases
out of one hundred are nothing but catai rh.
Peruna cures catarrh wherever located.
