Published Every Friday. HOLIVAR, - TENNESSEE. FOLDED IN SLEEP. At dusk the mother hen do brood their young. Close sheltering them beneath their out-spread While in the bhaJowy elms the robin binfrs His evening song, and in the west is bung The slender moon, the shining clouds among. Then all the downy, nestling, murmuring things Against their mother's breast do crowd, while rings From out the night the sound of bells, slow swung. And still those anxious mothers faintly croon When thut bright glow that tilled the western skies Has paled, and silent Is the robin's tune. A murmur us of prayer does softly rise From 'neath those brooding wings, asking tho boon Of rest then Into sleep's deep silence dies. Bo to their mother Silence gently creep Her brood of summer sounds, all closely pressed Against her tender, downy-feathered breast. The timid birdlings. shy, all slyly peep Beneath her wings, then in tne shadows deep Are lost again. A blue-bird by his nest. Voicing his love; the leaves by winds ca ressed, Stirring and whispering faintly in their sleep; The pet-ping of lost chicks ; the drowsing low Of bees amid the winced clusters light; Of ba-swood blooms, the song of oriole bright; The lauch of flickers, and the trickling flow Of shrunken brooks and springs; the lusty crow Of chanticleer; the robin's bold delight Amid the rij ening cherries; from the height Of upland meadows where the farmers mow, The ring of whetted scythes; the ceaseless coo Of strutting doves upon the barn-roof old; These are the children mild that, trembling, woo Their mother's brooding wings to safely hold Them close, in drowsy rest the long Bight through, Within the sleepy shadow of their fold. Elizabeth Cole, in flood Housekeeping. AN ESCAPED CONVICT. In Aftor Years I Am Repaid for Lending Him Assistance. Asa boy, Ilarkcns was advanced a long wuy ahead of tho rest of us in that shady lore connected with life's career in knickerbockers. He was at periodical intervals a scout; and wo never failed to envy him the luxuriant switch which ho woro borrowed in a surreptitious manner, from his mother's toilet arrangemonts. Wo envied that boy the possession of a mother who woro a switch; and we followed his leadership to tho bloody fray, and rescued the victim from the burning stake, or dragged the pale faced maiden from tho lone wigwam of tho bloodthirsty aborigines of the wild wood. Then he became a Corsair, a red handed pirate. It was an epoch of glory in tho life of each and every one of us, when, in drawing lots, we were allowed the glorious advantage of Bailing under his flag a veritablo tskull and cross-bones, proudly defiant from the apex of the Harkens hen house. Then, after the piratical course had spent its fury, and ufter wo had doubly-dyed our hands in the poke berry blood of our victims. Harkens went upon an expedition right into the wilds of Central Africa. How the gloomy forests of that wondrous re gion loomed up before us, as the brave leader led us into the depths! How wo shot tho fierce tiger, and lured the gigantic elephant to his doom'. How we snatched from the very jaws of , death,' and restored to happy homes, tho weak and defenceless maidens! That was boy life; that life which presents itself to me, ns I now sit here in my library, like sumo sweet old dream of happy days laid away in the past tho past so freighted with joys, and tinted with somber hues by tho tears of disappointment. And Harkens? Hush! Do not mention that namo. There is a rospectablo old lady living but two blocks away his mother. By her side sits to-night my wife, Hark ens' sister. They are both highly honored. Tho Harkens are all highly honored all but Jack, my school-boy Iriend. He is in prison, serving a six-year term for burglary. Two of tho years have passed, and Jack is still there; there to-night, and, if kind clumber has not sealed his eye lids, ho is ga.ing into tho impene trable darkness which crowds, com presses, Jills his little cell like ten millions of invisible blankets, crush ing tho life out of him, and rearing in his dreams sad phantoms, which reproach him like visitors from the tearful land of penitence and remorse. 1 hear a step hers, the woman I love; the woman whose heart beats forme, and for whom my heart throbs, as I lay asido my pen, and riso and open tho door. It is only a little white face, half hid in tho furry hood, a pair of brown eyes, and lips cold with the kiss of the night-air now warmed to red again by mv kisses. "Little woman, jour hands are like ice. Come to the liro and warm no; you can not. The fire has gone out. Now I want you to go right to your room and thaw out. You see here, Claire, what is the matter? YouV teeth are chattering like castanets, and you tremble from head to foot " "Dear," and she placed her chill hands upon my lips, looked around, as though she feared that the familiar walls had ears. "Jack is out!'1 If she had told me that Jack was dead, 1 couldn't have been more dumb founded. Sing Sing is strong, and holds many a laddie safe and sound from the encroachments of the great, big. free world. Yet men have es caped its iron doors and walls of stone but few have escaped-to live a life of freedom in this great world of ours; for tho law. like the monster octopus of the Caribbean Sea, reaches out its innu merable tentacles, one airier tho other, to draw its victim back into its terri ble embrace terrible alone to the evil doer, but a safeguard to which all of good intent and lawful action look to with emotions of protection. "Jack, escaped? How did you learn of it ?" I nked, as 1 drew tho shiver ing little woman to me, and wound a heavy coat about her. "From his own lip- " "What! And you have seen himP" I interrupted, more astonished than ever. "Yes, at .mother' but the officers will MMn have him back again, uu less " "Well, unless what?" "Unless you help him " "kVl.y. my deer, that is a fearful thii to do. A man who holds the po-:li.n lh:il I do in the business world. !sr-ist an e : ; convict " "Don't ay it. dear. Yes, I know Jack i. what jou s-y. It has broken mother's heart; and but for you, ray dear, I should die of shame. Jack in my brother. You used to like jolly Jack Harkens, long, long ago." It ras said so softly, sweetly and tenderly, that my heart melted as I looked into the pleading eyes of my wife Jack's eyes, when Jack was a boy, and before the fires of sin and crime stole away their softness. "Dear old Jack, the truest and bravest of us all in those sweet old days of long ago, away back in the little country town. Ah! evil companions have worked ill with Jack Harkens. They led him astray from the narrow path into the great, wide channel of sin; and he had so much to live for, too euch a de voted mwtLcr, such a dear little sis ter 'Y -to," softly broke in she. "Ye.- v own dear, little wife. I am a brute to tell you of your broth er's waywardness. I am afraid the prison doors will open again to receive Jack " "He swears he will kill himself, rather than be retaken." "The same old Jack, yet; if he swears it, no power will prevent him. If I could help Jack for your sake, for your mother's " "I knew you would. Hark! I hear a step on the veranda. It is Jack's. Forgive me I told him to come to you. I will go now. Good night." She pressed a kiss upon my lips, and left me. Tap, tap, against the blind of my library window opening upon the ver anda. Raising the window, I pushed back the blinds and a tall woman stepped over the low sill, clumsily dragging tho long skirts after her. I reclosed the blinds and window, and turned to Jack, now standing with his back to the cold fire-place. The long dress was raised, and there he stood in his same old posture, with both hands plunged into tho pockets of a pair of zebra-marked trousers. It was Jack Harkens, the escaped convict, in his prison garb. "Got any cigars, Dick? Thanks; haven't had many cigars lately. I'm quite a sight, am I not, in my close crop?" "You look changed. You have grown thin," I said, as I pushed a chair forward. "Perhaps I have; now, do you know, Dick, prison life acts differently upon different subjects? Some grow fat, and some thin. If a man has been dissipated before his imprisonment, he gets fat and healthy through forced denial of the things which tend to make a man seedy and old before his time. One of the best bits of advice I could possibly give to broken-down and shat tered men around town, would be commit some crime against law, and go and sojourn for a period in Sing Sing. On the other hand, a man who has lead a correct life, physically, I mean, there is nothing that will eat the flesh off of his bones and plow channels in his cheeks like prison air, confinement the thousand and one constant yearnings to bo free." It was a strange study to hear this man, with the marks of prison life upon his face, right here within reach almost of tho shadow of law, calmly, philosophically discoursing the results, pro and con., concerning alifo without freedom. "Jack, you are in danger " "Yes, perhaps; but I have that about me this, a xuiv penei, a aoacuy poi son " "And you prefer that to imprison ment?" "I would, hence I am not afraid. Dick, I want your help. I want to ask a small loan. I am going to leave the country." "Then you must do it quickly. Your very presence is fraught with danger, danger to you, and disgrace to me." "Yes; I understand all that, Dick. But you see, there was no one else, and because of Claire, I thought " "And you thought right. Here is a pocketbook containing three hundred dollars. Now Jack, go away some where, and, I say, Jack, you are too good a man to go down to perdition." "No man can tell me what I know and think every hour. I am going away now. Think kindly if you can of old Jack. Once in awhile look in upon my dear old mother. Oh, my God! If I could but live over my past life! For every tear her dear eyes have shed, I'd do a deed of kindness to warm hor heart. But I went the wrong way. And I say, Dick, if there should ever come a little boy to glad den your heart, don't ever tell him any thing about his outcast Uncle Jack." Re-arranging tho dress, and again covering his head, ho stepped into tho hall, and I let him out into tho darkness of his romorso and into the gas-lighted street. And so I had helped a convict to es cape. What would ray business asso ciates say? What would tho world say? Had I done right? In the sight of tho law, no; but in my wife's heart, and because of the many tender re membrances of tho old past, yes. How my creditors pressed and crowded mo to the wall. I felt the good house which I had reared, trem bling around us; and my good credit, that which I had so long pointed to with pride, it was crumbling, and I could not stay the ruin which was progressing, and hourly drawing mo to that procedure which I shrank from in horror bankruptcy. Shall I meet the inevitable like a man? Shall I? but stay; the last thought was but an accursed tempta tion which I must not. as a man, con template. Still, it would bo so easy. A few thousand dollars saved from the ruins; and tho border between Canada and the United Suites is tantalizingly, temptingly near. Away with this cruel devil. I will be a man for the sake of my wife and children, a man, even though the yoke bo a heavy one to bear. It may be shame, but it will not be crime. "A gentleman to see you," said my ofliee boy, as he poked his head through tho little window. "Shw him in." I uttered. It must bo my lawyer. Tho fiat has gone forth and I must brace myself for the shock. In the morning the whole city will know of my downfall. If I have ene mies they will then show their faces in the broad light; and ray friends; I wonder will they stand by me and mine, and pour out their sympathy, for which we all shall bo so sorely j.o need. The door opened, aud a stranger, not my lawyer, entered. The stranger's throat was heavily ! muil'e.l. and when ho accosted me I was unable to recognie his voice. "May I occupy a few brief moments or your time, and without interrup tion?" Whatever he wanted to occupy my time for I could not tell, for I did not know him, jtidging from the small j portion of his face left uncovered by j the heavy muffler and the long peak of a fur cap drawn down over his brows. I pushed the door catch, and drew the curtain over the small, unglazed window. "Now, sir, please be so kind as to take a seat," I said as I turned. It was Jack Harkens! The same Jack, older, more grave looking, and with a calmer light in the eyes, and a softer expression about the lips. "Well, Dick, it is I. Are you quite sure we are safe from intrusion?" The muffler no longer disguised the tones of his voice a voice that came to my ears like some dear old familiar song's echoes of the past. "Jack, in the name of Heaven hat-e a care, man; you are running your head into tho lion's mouth " "Nonsense! after all these years the lion must be sleeping." "Perhaps, but easily aroused, Jack. Now sit down, and tell me why you came here. We are wholly safe from intrusion or interruption." ' 'Ten years ago, Dick, I parted from you under rather peculiar circum stances. How has the world used you since then?" "Well until now," I groaned, as I leaned my head upon my hand. "And Claire, and and mother?" asked he, falteringly. "Both are well; your mother is liv ing with us." "I thank you for that, Dick," uttered he warmly, as he reached out and clasped my hand in a fervent embrace. "What seems to be the trouble now, Dick?" "I am upon the verge of failure " "No! What? You fail?" "Yes; times have been close, and several failures among some of my creditors, all have combined to work against me." "And you can not meet your indebt edness dollar for dollar? Is that what you mean?" "It is. To-morrow morning the pa pers will spread broadcast my ruin." "Is there no alternative?" he asked. I shook my head. "How much do you owe, Dick?" "Fifty thousand dollars," I groaned in despair. "And you have in yonder soe?" I looked at him in horror. What right had he, an escaped convict, a man who had served a portion of his time in Sing Sing for burglary, to ask me such a question? But then he was my wife's brother, my dear friend. Jack Harkens, of my school-boy days. "Ten thousand dollars " "But a drop in the bucket. Why sacrifice it to your greedy creditors?" "Jack, you forget yourself. Your life has been vastly different from mine, you will recollect," I said, as I rose and turned from him. "It will give you time " "Time? What do you mean?" I quickly asked, as I again turned toward him. "Listen to my plan. Sit down; I will tell it in a few words." I reseated myself, and gazed upon his handsome face as he revealed what he was pleased to call his pan. "It is years sinco I did any job of this sort, but I think my hands and brains have not lost their cunn5-,;. You are pressed by your creditors. You. ,-?.rt to wi.lxe witn them dollar for dollar, but can not. You would give them this paltry ten thousand dollars, which would only whet their appetites for more. To-night now listen and do not start will crack your safe! You will say that you had forty thousand dollars in it. Your creditors1 greed will turn to sympathy, and they will give you further time. Now, what do you think of my plan?" He leaned back in the chair and fixed his eyes upon my face, as though he would fain read every thought running riot through my whirling brain. My safe broken open and forty thou sand dollars taken from it! The whole city would talk about it; the officers of the law would take speedy steps to capture the burglar, and my creditors would give me time to retrieve my losses because of my calamity. No one would know but Jack and my God and conscience. Heavens ! how could I face tho phantom of my past unblemished life, and still the little voice which would, every moment -of my after life, confront me with that namo thief. "Jack I I can not," I weakly ut tered, as I fell back, utterly bereft of strength. "Spoken like a man. Ah! Dick, old boy, you withstood temptation, as I failed to years ago; and now, I beg you to forgive old Jack for presenting a plan ho never intended to follow. You start. Well, perhaps you have reasons. I, too, am an honest man, and have been ever since we last parted." "Thank God, you did not mean it," I gasped. "Crack your safe? Do any thing that would place me back where I was years ago? never! But I have another plan to release you from your present disagreeable emergency. "What do you mean?" I asked in amazement. "This check Twill fill out for the sum of fifty thousand dollars;" and as he spoke he drew out a check-book, and proceded to fill it out and sign it. Then he handed it to me, and leaning back, laughed heartily, as ho saw the look of wonderment which must have spread over my features. "This is not your name " "But that name, Edward Strange Winters, is good for half a million of dollars " "What, tho rich banker of San Fran cisco?" "None other. Dick, you know it will not do for me to stay hero in the city too long. Some of my old com rades might recognize me.which would be quite unpleasant, you will admit. While you are at the bank I will pay a flying visit to mother and Claire. Now, good-bye, old fellow; and, I say, don't forget your friend, the ex burglar." I was alone. In my hand was the check, and, thank God, I was a free man. I could now meet my creditors, and face them proudly, fori possessed that which would and did satisfy every claim against me. Before sundown the cloud had en tirely passed away from my financial sky. and then I went home a free man. Upon the faces of Claire and her moth er I saw tunshine. Life prospered witn mo after that.

A physician giving a bit of his own personal experience, and having a constitutional tendency to sleepless ness, says that nothing has ever given such decided relief as eating heartily just before going to bed. He objects to the use of the customary night-cap as a remedy against sleeplessness, both because alcohol is injurious to an empty stomach, and because it does not induce a natural sleep. But he thinks that adults should be like babies, who sleep best with a fulf stomach, without night-mare, or othef unpleasant results. A Turkish police court in Con stantinople was investigating the cause of the death of a young and beautiful Circassian slave, found floating in the Bosphorus, with her hands and feet firmly bound with thongs. The court had the body identified as that of a girl who belonged to a wealthy Turk. Then it rendered the decision that the deceased came to her death by drown ing, she having cast herself into the sea with the purpose of taking her own life. Tho firmness of this pur pose was shown by the solidity with which she had bound her own hands and feet before throwing herself into the water. PASSENGERS' RIGHTS. Interesting Derlaion Rendered by the Mln nesota Supreme Court. II. got on a regular train to go to W.' as it was about to start. He could not find a seat, and he could not leave the train, as it was going at great speed. He refused to pay his fare un less he was provided with a seat, and the train was stopped at a point far from any station and ho was ejected from the train. He brought an action, Hardenbergh vs. St. Paul M. & M. Railway Company, to recover dam ages, and was defeated. He carried the case to tho Supreme Court of Min nesota, where the judgment was re versed. The Chief Justice, Gilfillan, in the opinion, said: "II. could refuse to pay fare unless he was provided with a seat, and this refusal did not make him a trespasser on the train. As a general rule, it is the duty of a railroad company to provide sufficient cars to carry the passengers coming on the trains. The law does not re quire unreasonable things to be done, and single or occasional defaults in providing seats enough, when there is an unexpected rush of travel, might be excused. In this case the train was a regular train, and H. properly boarded it. No exceptional condition of affairs is made apparent here to justify the default of the company. When H. learned he could not be seat ed, he had tho right to elect to remain on the train and pay his fare, or to re hire to pay it, when it would be his duty to leave the train at the first rea sonable opportunity offered to him. He could not be expected to leave the train while in motion. A reasonable opportunity to leave it would have been the stopping of the train at a suitable and reasonable place. Such an opportunity the defendant was bound to afford, unless it chose to enr rv him without tho payment of his fare. It was t!- company's fault, not the pln!nti!rs..thal a v.at not pn .-. ' T 1 "1 .

Y., I March 24, 1S86. f About a year ago I was taken with a severe pain in both lungs. I was first at tacked with a violent chill, then a dreadful pain and then a cough accompanied by con siderable fever. It looked very much like a bad attack of pneumonia. A friend of mine procured five Ai.lcock's Plasteks. One he put under each arm, one under each shoulder blade, and one on my chest close around my throat. In a few hours the cough ceased, the pain gradually abated and I broke out in a profuse perspiration I fell into a profound sleep, and the next day was almost well. I wore the Plasters eight days afterwards, and have never had any trouble since. William A. Sawteh. A wicked coal-dealer's motto: ''Tho lighter the weight the heavier the prof its."
