For Joha Smith W dead, killed going from
some.
"A poor man," said the world, for gold he
bad none;
His treasure was laid where moth never rusts ;
He had helped many needy always saying his
- trust
Was the God of the widow and orphan.
But now he was cone, his wife left so poor,
The neighbors predicted "she'd be turned out
of doors ;"
Her children be scattered, "bound out" was
the term;
When Mrs. Smith heard, when alone they af
firmed
. ' "The poor-house just the place for the cbil
dren."
"But we must do something, " the neighbor
spake low, . . , . .
"For always when with us A never oould know
Of one in distress without lending a hand,
Saving nought for his own, like a provident
, man, 5 . , ,
But trusting the bank up in Heaven.
I say, let us draw on the bank where our friend
Deposited much, so we will attend
With prayers, at the house, that bis widow be
blest;
If good comes it will com, ws will trust for
toe rest,
Like improvident brother, John Smith.
So a notioe was given and many friends oame
To pray for the children who bore up Smith's
. . name, - - - -
That clothing and food to the widow be given
Who trusted alone in the riches of Heaven,
And implored Heaves.' s choice blessings up
on her.
When suddenly, "Gee, whoa up, now you're
Here," ,.
With a crack of the whip, and a young man
appeared
At the door, and inquired, 'Is Widow Smith
; .,. ..in?
They are busy at home, so" I came to bring
The prayers in the cart from my father."
Ada Carleton Stoddard, in Good Cheer.
BABRY,
Miss Abigail Burr was a little brown old
maid, who lived in a little brown old house
with her cat Debby. and her woman-of -all-
work, Prudence, sharp of tongue, long of
visage, browned and older than the - mis
tress herself. There was nothing of grace,
nor beauty, nor sweetness4 about Miss Ab
igail's life ; everything was dry, hard and
husky. Indeed, some people were bo un
charitable as to say that her heart was
like a very much dried up kernel in a nut
shell, and would rattle if she were to be
shaken hard enough. But I never quite
believed that. ' I always said there was a
soft spot in Mifls Abigail's heart, to be
found when tlie time came to find it.
One spring twilight a boy opened Miss
Abigail's garden irate and walked up the
path between the rows of straggling lilacs.
He was not & lxy who lived about Capers
town, or he would not have dared venture,
I am sure, for Prudence's sake, besides
having nothing' to venture for. He was an
unkempt, starved-looking little specimen
of humanity. His coat was a world too
long and patched at .: the elbows, and his
trousers weie a -world too short and patoh-
ed at the knees. His .bat was guiltless of
brim, arid throunh a hole in the crown
bobbed a little tuft of hair which had once
been brown, but was now wofully faded
He went straight up to Miss Abigail's
porcJi steps. Miss Abigail was sitting on
the porch in her ..high-backed rocking
ch Jr. so intent on binding off her stock'
in'g heel that she heard neither the eliok of
tne gate latch nor the footsteps on the
aard-trodden path, and- she did not look
up until the boy's figure interposed itself
between her work and the fading sunset
light
He doffed his tattered hat erown. -
"If you please, ma'am, will you may I
have something to eat ?"
It was not at all a tramp's manner of
asking ; there was a manliness in the voice
which Miss Abigail could not help but no
tice. Perhaps that was the reason she
looked at the boy sharply for a moment
before she answered
In that moment, Prudence, tall and an
gular, stood in the door wiih a shawl thrown
over her head, and her right hand swathed
with soft cotton.
"I'll have to git Jonas Brown's man to
do the milkin', Miss Abigail," said she.
"I can't ; I've burned my hand that bad. "
The boy looked up quickly. "Can't I
could I milk for you ?"
As I have intimated, Prudence did not
like boys ; and that she sometimes express
ed her dislike in a very forcible manner
many of the Tillage urchins could testify.
Now, she surveyed this boy, standing by
the porch steps, from, his bare brown head,
not forgetting the faded little tuft.in dumb
astonishment.
VrTl YTITfVrit 1 3 V ? TV, I mm PmAniiA "
said Miss Abigail, thinking rather dubi
ously of the nervous,' mouse-colored Alder
ney in the yard.
. "I chorea on a farm all last summer, ex
plained the boy, eagerly, glancing from
mistress to maid. "I want some supper,
and I'll be glad to "do something to pay
for it."
"Well, you kin try it," said Prudence,
after a momentary deliberation. "Its bet
ter n begging a favor, anyhow,'
She led the way to the kitchen, and took
a shining tin pail from the dresser,
"Here's the milk-pail," said she to the
boy, who stood waiting ; "an'-the cow's in
the yard yonder .Pay-day oomes when
the work's done," .
And Prudence smiled grimly, as she
went about setting but a luneh of bread
and butter and eold meat She felt moral
ly certain that th&ilighty Aldernev heifer.
used only to womankind, would be much
more likely to spread a pair of bovine
wings and fly away; than to allow herself
to be milked by a boy.
'Me can't do it H-he said to Miss Ab-
igail, who presently brought her knitting
worn, into me sviionen. "x'ne heifer 11
send him skyhigh I
. iiut he could and he did it Soon, he
appeared in the doorway, his pail brim
.ning with snowy foam.
"Well, I never !" ejeculated Prudence.
"xou didn't think I could?" said the
ijoy, smiling brightly.
"No, I didn't," admitted Prudence ; and
Bixuigjjtway, ui ner astonishment, she ad
cTed to his fare a segment of rhubarb pie
"Wasn't there a bit of cheese left from
tea r aaitea miss Abigail,
' Prudence thought there was, and while
she was fetching it from the cellar he gave
bimpelf a healthy scrubbing at the pump
coming in from his ablutions fresh and
ruddy as a rose. He was very hungry
there was no doubt of that He looked at
Miss Abigail with a deprecating smile as
Prudence earned off the bread plate for a
third replenishing. .
"I'm pretty hungry," said he. "This
is the first bite I've had since morning
and it tastes good,"
To be sure it did. Miss Abigail thought
of a little brother who died years and years
before, ere his tender feet began to feel
the pricks in -life's path. How strange
that the sight of this little vagrant, satis
fying his craving at her kitchen table,
should bring to her remembranoe the child
who had so early put off the mortal for the
immortal ! Presently, when the boy had
finished his repast, he laid his knife and
fork across his plate . with a methodical
precision which it pleased Miss Abigail to
see ; and then he glanced from Prudence,
standing near with her arms akimbo, to
Miss Abigail. : . ' -
"Thank you for my supper," said he.
Mavbe I'd best be getting along,
xou
don't want a boy to work, do you i
"A boy to work I echoed Prudence.
"Did I ever 1"
No, we don't," said Miss Abigail,short-
. . i i .
It. Ana men it was strange euougu
that she could not help thinking again of
that frail little life which had blighted in
the bud so long before.
"How far are you going i" she asked.
"I don't know, ma'am."
"And where have you come from pro
ceeded Miss Abigail. V.
"Tresoott, ma am. Alotner oieu tnere
three months ago." There was a pathetic
quiver in his voice.
And then, with little questioning, he

He was very near to tears now.but he held
them back sturdily. "But there don't any
body seem to want me." ' ,
Miss Abigail was moved more than she
would have cared to own Dy uua rauuu,
tn )at who had lived for self so long.
their was onmpthinfiT indescribably, pitiful
in the thought of this little wanderer, bat
tling alone with the world, buffeted by
fortune, drifting here or there as chance
might dictate. It had grown dark now
the lamps had long since been ngntea ;
and there were mutterings of distant thun
Aa-v in fha air
"Its going to rain," said Miss ADigau.
"You needn't go to-night ; you may sleep
in the stable loft" .
Barry thanked her.
The storm broke with great violence.
And while MissAbigail listened to the sharp
peals of thunder and to the pouring of the
rain against the windows she thought of
the lonely little wayfarer in the stable loft
with a TiAw strancre throb of pity. Morn
ing oame, merry with bird song and glis
tening with myriads of rain-drops. Pru
dence was up betimes, but early as it was,
she heard the sound of the axe in the
woodshed, and when Bhe opened the door
Barry smiled at her from his post by the
chopping block. '
"I don't think I paid enough for my
supper eat such a lot," he said ; "bo I ve
split some kindlings, and I'll milk for you
this morning if you want me to.
Prudence brought tne miiK pan witnoui
a word But when she had prepared Miss
Abigail's morning meal, she made ready a
good substantial breakfast for Barry also.
wnen ne naa eaten it ne toon, up mo u
crown.
"Go out the way you come in,' Baid
Prudence. " 'r else you'll bring bad luck.
Barry gave a little incredulous laugh,
but he went out to the porch. Miss Ab
igail was there taking deep breaths of the
fresh air, and she bade him a mna "gooa

morning as ne went on tne step aim
down the path again between the lilacs,
exuberant in growth but meager in moom.
I wonder why my lilacs, do not jiower
more freely." This Miss Abigail said to
Prudence, who had followed, to the door.
"L dunno, answered jrruaence.
Barry heard, and turned. "I guess its
because you leave the old blossoms on,"
he said, hesitatingly. "Mother used to
say I must pick the blossoms off one year
if I wanted any next"
And he went out of the gate, closing it
carefully behind him, and along the moist
brown highway. .
That is a very uncommon Doy, saia
Miss Abigail, looking after him with se
rious eyes.
"Yes," assented Prudence, "ne s aciever
'nough little chap for a boy."
"To think of his knowing about the li
lacs," continued Miss Abigail, meditative
ly "I must cut off the flowers this
spring.
"An' he got as good a mess o' milk from
the heifer as I could ha' done myself with
a well hand, Prudence went on.
"Yes, he would have been handy about
milking and getting the wood for you,
said Miss Abigail.
"An bnngin' the letters from tne post
office." proceeded Prudence. "Its a good
piece over to the village in muddy walkin'."
So.it is" said Miss ADigan. one
gazed reflectively along the road which
wound, serpentine, to the iitue namiec a
mile away. Barry was climbing the hill,
a mere, pitiful, lonely speck in the dis
tance, as he was a mere, insignificant atom
in the great body of humanity. Miss Ab
igail's eyes filled.
,.-"We might have kept him," she said.
"Tain't too late yit !" put in Prudence.
The two women looked into each other's
eyes, ;
"If you could ' make him hear," began
Miss Abigail.
For answer Prudence strode to the road,
and sent a long quavering cry after Barry.
"B-o-o-ov !"
But the little figure they were watching
plodded steadily on.'.
"Gimme the ole tin horn out'er the
kitchen, Miss Abigail !" called Prudence,
exoitedly. i
"Quick :" "'"
Miss Abigail, staid spinster that she
was. without a thought of the ludicrous-
ness of the proceeding, ran to the kitchen,
snatched the horn from its nail and ran
out with it to Prudence. And Prudence
put it to her lips and blew a blast so long,
so loud, that it startled tne Dims into si
lence, and set the echoes ringing from hill
side to hillside. '.
"He c'n hear that if he c'n hear any
thing," she murmured.
He did. He stopped. Prudence flour
ished the horn- in frantic excitement.
There was a .moment of suspense ; and then
Prudence turned to Miss Abigail, standing by
the gate.
"He's a-comin' back," she said.
, When Barry, breathless with the haste he
had made, reached the cottage, Miss Abigail
was waiting on the porch.
; "We made up our. minds to keep you,"
said she,, ','so long as you don't give too much
trouble."
"0, thank you.ma'aml" cried Barry. "In
deed, I'll try to please you."
r I am sure he has succeeded,- for the lilacs
have been in bloom three tunes since that
morning, and he is with Miss Abigail yet,
growing tall and strong and manly as the
years go by. He tills the bit of a farm which
had so long lain unimproved, and in winter
attends school at the village, where he is in
excellent repute. He is, withal, so faithful
and helpful and kind that Prudence is fain to
apotheosize the horn after this fashion : . ,
' 'Harhsome is as harnsome does ; an' you're
deservin1 of a bed of velvet, old horn, for the
good deed you done that day."

The city of Knoxville, Tenn., appears i
to be built on nothing. The other day the I
water in oneof the citv reservoirs, amount-!
ing to half a million gallons, disappeared
in a very mysterious way, and subsequent
investigation showed that it had gone
through an opening in the bottom, and
that springs half a mile away had over
flowed with roily water. The local papers
say the city is built on a mammoth cave,
and may some day go the way of its reser
voirs. .

"Your asking me how X-came to use it, reminds me
of the story of the Scotchman who, on his deathbed
after a life ot meanness, wanted' to make things all
right with the Lord by leaving some money to the
kirk."
" 'Will the Almighty pass me into Heaven if I give
10,000 pounds to the kirk, d'ye think V said he."
" 'I can't promise ye thot, mon,' answered the min
ister, 'but I advise ye to try the experiment.' "
Laughing heartily at the story, Rev. F. E. Osborne,
of No. 273 Ogden avenue, Jersey City, pastor of the
First Baptist church, West Hoboken, continued
"That's what I did with Parker's Tonic ; I tried the
experiment; It more than met my expectations, and
I am very glad to testifv to its excellence. It goes at
once to the root of all digestive and aervous derange
ments so common among men of my profession.
For women and chronic invalids the Tonic is a per
fect invigorant, and is destined to supplaut all other
remedies for this purpose. A single dose produces
the gentle perspiration and sense of life which erad
icates disease. It seems to rouse every organ imo
activity. I admire it, too. for its power to antagonize
the hold of the liquor habit over inebriates."
This preparation, which has been known as Par
ker's Ginger Tonic, will hereafter be called simply
Parker's Tonic. As unprincipled dealers are con
stantly deceiving their customers with inferior arti
cles under the name of ginger; and as ginger is really
an unimportant flavoring ingredient, we drop the mis
leading word.
There will be no change, however, in the prepara
tion itself, and all bottles in the hands of dealers,
wrapped under the name of Parker's Ginger Tonic,
contain the genuine medicine if the facsimile signa
ture of Hiscox & Co. is at the bottom of the outside
wrapper.

Misa Emily Faiihfull is reported aa say
ing after a visit to Vassal college : "You
know an audience of young lady students
is the hardest one in the world to address.
I always feel like surrendering at discre
tion when confronted with a battery of 600
girls' eyes. They listen politely, but you
never know what they think. They ap
plaud kindly, but reflect afterwards. I
was most struck at Vassar with the alert
ness of your American women. They are
full of nerves, they are-eager, qulcic, ex
citable, and they seem to combine thor
oughness with a vivacity we Blow coach
English folks don't possess. "Xnen you
like our American women, do you ?" ask
ed the reporter. "Your American women
are more nervous and active and eager
than ours. Your climate is more exasper
ating ; it is 'beastly' weather here some
times ; the London fogs are not a circum
stance to some of the weather you en
dure without complaining. But it tells on
women, who are more susceptible to such
influences than men. I notice that many
of your intellectual women, your women
of culture and writers, have a meager,
stinted look. It isn t considered 'nice ltr
adies to eat much here. I find that they
regard "leed as a nasty word. As a re
sult they lack physique. They ought to
take more square meals, and have more
care for creature comforts, and get more
epose, to onset the effects of your too
driving ways of living." "Do you think it
better to educate girls by themselves or
with young men ?" "Better together than
apart, but far better apart than not at all."
"There will be no peaches this year, by
the way. Frost killed them all. Every
last soht.ry peach, the man on the wood
box remarked, with a pathetio inflection
in his voice.
"Which frost?" savagely demanded the
fat passenger.
"(same old frost, replied the man on
the wood-box, sadly.
"Same frost that killed em last year,
suppose ?" said the cross passenger.
"The same ! the man on the wood-box
asserted.
'And the one before that again ?" the
brakeman echoed.
And the man on the wood-box bowed
his head in assent.
"The same old frost." he said, "that kills
all the apples in Michigan every year, and
destroys the ice crop on the Hudson. I've
oeen a larmer myself, before l reiormed
and I've known a snow-storm in Colorado
to blight all the sugar maples in Vermont

Chicago Creek : The president of a de
f unct savings bank of this city got into
hack and rode to the central depot yester
day. Upon arrival at his destination the
driver said, "fare, please, one dollar."
As the regular charge is only fifty cents,
the passensrer indienantlv demanded of
the "Jehu," "what do you take me for?"
"Fifty cents on the dollar, sir. 1 was
afraid to say only fifty cents for the ride
for fear you would want to settle with me
for a quarter, that being ntty per cent.
and the rate at which you settled with
your other creditors."
The hackman got his dollar and the ex
banker got something he had not thought
ot before.

his teeth. An attendant mixes the colors
and puts the brush in his mouth. His
skill is said to be surprising, and his prog
ress is so rapid that his friends actually
expect his paintings to attain celebrity by
reason of their artistic value independent
ly of the physical dexterity which pro
duces them.
" Db. Ptekce's " Favorite PEESCRrPTiON" al
ways becomes the favorite remedy of those
who try it. It is a specific for all female
"weaknesses" and derangements, bringing
streneth to the limbs and back, and color to
the face. Of all druggists.
The Springfield Republican says : There
has been a change in one of the local fashions
that oueht not to go unnoted and that is not
unnoted bv women. Young men have learn
ed that it is not the thing to smoke on the
streets, and you may now walk far before you
meet a tonv voune man who is guilty of this
breach of etiquette. The hale youth from
rural regions, however, who comes to town
after peanuts and soda water, may occasion-
ally be seen leading his girl about and putting
a musty Connecticut weed.
Answeb This. Is there a person living who
ever saw a case of ague, biliousness, nervous
ness. or neuralgia, or any disease of the stom-
ach. liver, or kidneys that Hop Bitters will
not cure ?

STEM WINDING OPEN FACE CASE.
MANUFACTKHED IY THE
American Watch Co.,
WALTHAM, MASS.
This case is formed in one solid piece without iotnt
or seam, opening in front only, thus avoiding the
usual cap, and seeming greater strength and dura
bility. These Watches are all open face. Thebez,.! intn
which an extra strong crystal is fitted with an especial
ly prepared water-proof cement, is attached to the
case by screwing it thereon, and thus forms an air-
ugnt junction with the body of the case, which is
proof against dust and moisture.
To railroad men, travelers, miners. liiniW-,
and others who are almost constantly exposed and
who have to make frequent reference to the watch,
these qualities are of tho utmost Imnortanee.
The following letters t1l
own story :
Valdosta, Georgia, July 20, 1882.
I sold one of your Patent Dust Proof Cases about
ten months ago, and the other day it came buck to mo
with the request to make it wind easier. On exami
nation I found that the stem was ruBty, and I Inquired
mio me cause ot it. The gentleman stated tr. m f i.
he was starting some saw-logs that had lodm-d iu tl.
bend of the river, when his chain r,irM t . i.,uk
and threw his watch into about twelve feet of water,
and he was abont two hours finding it. When lis got
it out it was runuiug, uud he thought all right. In
about three months bo found that the stem was hard
to turn and sent it to'me.
I can say that the watch is all that the comnanr
claims for it, and recommend it to all railroad and
mill men. n. w. nEKTTT .nv
Clinton, Iowa, April 29, 1881.
'I wish you would send me a spriug for the Wm.
Ellery Watch. By the way this Ullerv is a
watch I sold In your Screw Bezel Case to a farmer
last fall. The first of Januarv he lost thn wnti-li tn
he woods, and found it this week in about one foot
of water. It had.luin three months and over lu snow
and water, with but slight injury to the watch only
a hair-Bpring. c. S. RAYMOND."
The above were very severe tests, and demonstrate
beyond a doubt, that for any reasonable length of
time during which a watch might be under water it
would receive no injury whatever.

: Messrs. Lewis & Co.. .
Gentlemen: I hare suf-
; fered with Chills and Feer
and Malaria for the past two'
years, residing during that
; time at 780 Chapel street,
New Haven, Conn. I used
quinine in its various forms,
and a great deal of it While
I could prevent ' the chills I
could not rid my system of
the poison. For some time
last summer I was so weak
that I could sit up but .very
little. My countenance was
swollen, and quinine failed
to give me an appetite, or to
act perceptibly as a tonic.
In this condition I began the
use of your Lewis' Red Jacket
Bitters. Immediately I felt
their effects. In two weeks I
was nearly in my usual
health. I used two bottles
since that time. Whenever
I have a recurrence of mala
rial symptoms I use a few
doses of the Bitters, and I
certainly consider them a
most valuable remedy. They
are my medicine.
