His name was Jacob, Ik Lad been Lis father's before bias, and bis father's fatner's. The Storms were a hard-working, money-getting race. Jacob Storm, s the father of our hero, constantly said that "he. couldn't Jwe why under tho shining sun a man needed an education; t any rate, more'n 'nough to reckon his crops and cattle." , Jacob, the younger, had once expressed a desire to attend school out of town; but Storm, senior, - killed his ambition in that respect with a few words. The inhabitants of Putneyville were not all conservatives of the Storm order. Sons of rich farmers were in college, v daughters of bard-working fathers and mothers, were away at school, and Put neyville felt their influence when they camo home for a vacation. One of the gayest, brightest, prettest girls in town was bailie Hirers. Her father had a poorer farm and fewer bonds than his neighbor Jacob Storm, but the Hirers family worshipped another idol. From tne mower down every one valued a trood education. The father hod been denied it, as he was the eldest of a large family, and compelled to aid in suDnort- ing the rest. He was a man of excellent natural ability, and extravagantly fond of reading. The boys of the family were com celled to work their vi ay through college, and Haliie, the jovial, was determined to fol low their example. No wonder Jacob Storm, junior, loved Sallie. He had lived near her for years, had carried ber dinner pail back and forth, for her, had purposely misspelled words to let her pass above him, and in all her maddest pranks, be had rejoiced while others blamed. When one of the neighbors gave a party, the verbal invi tation was generally, "Bailie, and the rest of the boy s. Sallie liked it; she was full of bound I uK iuii j sus uiuvu am v sun; auu as nnr brothers were, with one exception, older -m I than nersell, it was quite proper that j she should do as they did. Jacob Storm M had once called her "Will o'-tho-wisp," I and the name fitted her so well that the I boys took it up. The wildest colt on the farm would ouoy Sallie; she feared noth ing, went and came as ahe pleased, and did more work in one morning than her mother and Huldah, the maid, could pos sibly do together, ; Naturally, this warm-hearted, active, cheerful girl, was the light of her fath er's eves. He could not send her away from him, like the boys, not even for the coveted education. For three years in her teens she bore the restraint as meek ly as possible; but the fourth year could not be borne. How' much the girl had suffered in secret, no one knew. "Father," she said one day, as she sprang from her saddle, "my mind is made up. I shall go into the mill and earn money enough to attend school." "But mother -an't spare you, my daughter." . --"""""SlaUseis willing,", said Sallie; "she always wanted to study, herself." "Well, we seem to need yon here, somehow," said the old gentleman, strok ing the colt's neck to hide his feelings. "Yes, father, and you shall havo. me. I can work hard, and come home to spend every vacation; and won't you be glad to seeme?" Mr. Rivers led the colt away, and did not answer. i ' "Why not?" he said to himself ; "why shouldn't she have a fair chance? I suppose I might sell off the meadow to old Storm, and send my only girl away in good shape; but it will spoil the farm, and I hate to." - He could not think of the house with out her; he dreadod the long winter evenings, and the warm summer days, ' without his darling; and at last he sat ' down in one corner of the barn on an old grindstone, which Sallie had often turned for him. He sat there a long time, trying to overcome his selfishness; and at last, as he heard the girl's ringing a voice calling him to supper, he rose up, saying, ''"She's my only girl; and she shall have a chance, come what will." Tho boys were delighted. They were proud of Sallie, and quite sure she would do herself and the family credit. To be sure, Tom's pride was hurt when ho heard she was to work in the mill at Glenmere; but the new house which Tom had urged his father to build bad oost more than they expected, and every year some new "machinery must be purchased. It was twenty miles to Glenmere twenty miles ,' from home love, care and comfort; but Sallie did not falter. To be sure, it was S trial to leave them all, A hard thing to select from her little store of girl's be longings; and a small room in a boarding-house would never afford the delight that ber own large, sunny chamber did. Sallie felt a thousand tears, but did not shed one, although her mother and Hul dh wept profusely as the carriage drove away, with Sallie a father on the back seat with her, and Jacob Storm in front with Bailie's brother Dike. "I wish I had her chance," said Jacob. as the father and daughter talked in low tones on tire back seat. . "Great chance,", said Dike, "to go down there and work among all sorts, and never have any music evenings, or any home, or " Dike paused; his scelings were too much for hiin, and yet he would not let Jake Storm see a tear in his eyes. "It's a chance to make yourself some thing better than a drudge, a chance to see and know what is going on in the great world. Beading is good. Dike but seeing is a million times better. Jacob read early and late, he thought and studied; but after all, he knew that the discipline which Tom and Joe Rivers were having would be a great blessing to him. His one dread was that Sallie might consider him inferior to her. "She shall not get before me if I die try ing," he said.' bailie's room was not so bad after all; Mrs. Mora had done her boat to please her old friend Mrs. Rivers. When Sallie's books were unpacked, and her piano was in -one corner, and her pot bird. Glory hung up, the place was quite delightful. ,. A room-mate was impossible, as she desred to spend all her spare moments in preparation for her future work. About this time she wrote to Tom : "It is a hard grind, dear old boy; and some times, when my bead whirls abont with the noise, or the associations vex me, 1 feel like running away to China or Japan; but I don't, I only go borne when I am free, and take good dose of Chopin or Beethoven; they tone me up. By care ful management, I shall be able to save ' some money. There is a little French girl hore, who ss anxious to study Eng lish; every week I give her a lesson for a . lesson ; I speak and read French with her; then, two of Mrs, Mora's children take lesVms on the piano, and my board bill .. j Who do you think comes here T? Why, Jacob Storm. His 'ei him go to college, and here after work jsdjan 1 Saturday, and returns Sunday night. He is a great friend of John Mora's, and I have to be teased about him, but I don't mind that Jake seems like one of you and every week he questions me about my lessons. "Sometimes he brings a few flowers, or some chiokweed tor Glory, sometimes a piece of new cheese in a dainty box, and generally a note or message from mother or Dike. When he drives down. Dike comes with him; and I can work harder all the week after seeing his rosy face. "Jake gets books from the library here, and leaves them for me to read first; then we talk them over afterward, and Dike is getting quite interested. Brave little Sallie! The days and weeks flew by, and found her at her post. She only saw the hard daily toil, only felt the bonds which kept her close until she could join the girls who quietly and easily walked the paths of knowledge. She did not know that her example cave Joe new courage, and kept Tom from many a "college lark ;" she never dreamed that Jacob Storm was making a man of himself for her sake: she could not see the power she exercised over Dike, who was inclined to be a little wayward; ' she never guessed that her devotion to self-culture and study had stimulated some of her associates to ro and do like wise. Her brief vacations were seasons of joy. Jacob Storm wished tbey might last forever. He, too, was hard at wo k; and one day, when he and Sallie had discussed the merits of various authors, and compared notes concerning their studies, Sallie's outburst of praise for his achievements drew from mm an avowal of his love. "Why, Jacob," said sua regretfully, I never thought of you in that way. I should as soon fancy Tom marrying mo." "You think I am clumsy and slow," he said, "or perhaps stupid and ignor ant, because I remain here whon others go away; they havo educated themselves, with fate and fortune to aid them. I have done it thus far against fate, and without fortune. I shall some day make the world hear of me; how, when, or where, I do not know, but it will come." . "I believe you, Jacob," said Sallie, "and I am proud of you; but love is something I know nothing of, and until I have finished my course as a student, I must put pleasure of all kinds out of my head. Don't sulk, Jacob; I am not heartless, only ignorant. Come, saddle Tarn O'Shanter, and let us have one of our mad rides to Sparkling Spring; it will be something to remember when I am grinding at the mill again." Jacob oboyed her. Her wishes had been his law for years, and he was manly enough to be proud of it. , At last the goal was won. Sallie was in college, devoting herself to her oher- lKbed books, and Jacob still worked as he had done before, now blaming himself for his folly in regarding his father's wishes, now working at his books with the desperate energy of one who has staked all on success. Every Sunday he visited Glenmere with Dike, but no longer sjient his time witn Sallie. At last a change came; Jacob Storm, Sr., was gathered to his fathers, and bis son was free. Dike wrote to his sister in boyixh fash ion : "Old Storm has gone, and Jake mourns for him as if ho had been loving and tender, instead of a stiff old miser. Jake will leave here Boon: he docs not say where he is going. "I shall miss him terribly. We have read and studied together all winter. Jake knows a heap. He surprises me all the time, lie is having your picture painted for me, from the one you sent home. I wisu i could go with him; but, as you say, it would never do to leave father and mother alone. I am reading the books you ordered, but I can t pin myself down to hard study after working all day." Sallie's last year of college life was drawing near its close, and the students were arranging for their separation, when an invitation was sent them to attend a lecture by an eminent gentleman who had been recently appointed to a profes sorship in a Western university. "Going, Miss Rivers?" asked a senior. as she peeped in at the half-open door of bailie s room. "No, I think not. I shall employ the time in writing home. "Do go. They tell mo Professor Storm is quite remarkable, and Darwin ism has its attractions for. all of us." "Frofessor Storm was closeted with the I'rex to-day," said another senior, and I understand the light of his conn tenance will illuminate the college to morrow." "I think I will go," said Sallie, sud denly, "it will not do to misa such a treat." In her rebellious little heart she was saying, "I will go for tho sake of the old name and my cltildliood's friend, but poor old Jake will never know any tiling of it." ' The hall was crowded, sud on the plat form sat the college 1'rcsnlMit, with sev eral distinguished gentlemen. The speaker's face was partly hidden by the (less boiore him. When he rose, at last, Sallie's heart gave a quick bound; for there before her stood her neighbor, friend and lover. He did not seem to see her; his sub ject engrossed his entire attention, Sal lie listened with pleasure. The physical training of the past added strength to his mental acquirements, and his clear, manly voice charmed all who listened to him. "Isn't he fine looking?" whispered one. "What a splenkid type of man hood I" said another. "He understands himself perfectly, as well as his subject," said a third. When the speaker closed, the applause was emphatic and prolonged. Sallie sat motionless. Surprise and pleasure mingled with a thousand memories. Pro fessor Storm did not heed it. He was looking at a bright face just before him, and answered the congratulations of his friends in an absent manner. "Pardon me," he said to the president; "I recognize, an old schoolmate yon der." "Ah, indeod! that is Miss Rivers, a yeung lady of remarkable energy and unbounded perseverance; she stands at the head of her class." "I'm so glad, so very glad," was all Sallie could say. "Are you? Then help me to escape from all these eyes, and let me give you the latest tidings from home." Miss Rivers was envied by her friends as she passed out, stopping now and then to introduce tho popular scientist as an old schoolmate. Of what thoy talked, and how, it mat ters not to ub; we only know that a cer tain professor was absent irom his post in order to utU'inl the exercises at a cer tain college, where Miss Ki vers gradu ated, and we also know that a wedding took place soon after, and the bride's toilett did not cost her weary days and nights; for, like a wise woman she pur chased it in New York, and enjoyed the last precious days with her friends. When the bridal party wont West, Dike joined them, and is now fitting himself for his future work in life. Mrs. Stornv nee Sallie Rivers, is also a professor in the some institution with her husband; and her excellent parents spend a portion of each season with her. When any of the family joke Professor Storm about his lovelike attentions to his wife, he always answers, "I owe all my prosperity to the fact that I have been her life-long, ardent lover." A Swbli, Suasu TJr. Tho team at tached to the family carriage of a rich Galveston family ran away a few days ago. The lady and her daughter were in the carriage, and the street was full of vehicles. She asked the coachman if he could stop the team. He said he could not, but he thought be could steer it. "Then," said she, leaning back with great composure, "rnn ns into some fashionable turnout. I want to be thrown into good company." Fortunately the team was halted just as it was about to demolish a swill cart. Galveston .News.

An alchemist, while seeking to dis cover a mixture of earths that would make the most durable crucibles, one day found that he had actually made porcelain. The power of lenses, as applied to tho telescope, was discovered by a watch maker's apprentice. While holding spectacle-glasses between his thumb and finger, he was startled at the suddenly enlarged apperance of a neighboring church-spire. , The art of etching upon glass was dis covered by a Nuremburg glass cutter. By accident, a few drops of aqua f ortis fell upon his spectacles. He noticed that the glass corroded and softened when the acid had touched it. That was hint enough. He drew figures upon glass with varnish, applied the corroding fluid, then cut away the glass around the drawing. When uie varnisn was re moved, the figures appeared raised upon a dark ground. Mezzotinto owed its invention to the simple accident of 'the gun-barrel of a sentry becoming rusted with dow. i.he swaying to ana iro oi a cnanuciier in a cathedral suggested to Galileo tho ; application of the pendulum. The art of lithographing was perfected through suggestions made by accident. A poor musician was curious to know whether music could not be etched upon stone as well as upon copper. After he had prepared his slab, his mother asked him to make a memoran dum of such clothes as she proposed to send away to be washed. Not having pen, ink and paper convenient, he wrote the list on the Btone with the etching preparation, intending to make a copy of it at leisure. A few davs later, when abont to clean the stone, he wondered what effect aqua fortis would have upon it. He applied the acid, and in a few minutes saw the writing standing out in relief. The next step necessary was simply to ink tho stone and take off an impression. The composition of which printing-rollers are made, was discovered by a Sal opian printer. Not being able to find the pelt-ball, he inked the type with a piece of soft glue which had fallen ont of the glue-pot. It was such an excellent sub stitute that, after mixing molasses with the glue, to give the mass proper consist ency, the old pelt-ball was entirely dis carded. The shop of a London tobacconist, by the name of Lnndyfoot, was destroyed by fire. While gazing dolefully into the smouldering rnins, he noticed that his poorer neighbors were gathering the snuff from the cannisters. He tested the snuff for himself, and discovered that the fire had largely increased its pungency and aroma. He secured another shop, built a lot of ovens, subjected the snuff to a heating process, gave the brand a particular name, and in a few years became rich through an accident which he at first thought had completely rained him. The process of whitening sugar was discovered in a curious way. A lieu that had went through a clay puddle went with her muddy feet into a sugar-house. It was noticed that wherever her tracks were the sugar was whitened. Experi ments were instituted, and the result was that wet clay came to be used in refining sugar. The origin of the blue-tinted paper came about by a mere slip of the hand. The wife of William East, an English paper-maker, accidentally let a blue-bag fall into one of the vats of pulp. The workmen were astonished when they saw the peculiar color of the paper, whilo Mr. East was highly incensed over what he considered a grave pecuniary loss. His wife was so much frightened that she would not confess her agency in the matter. After storing tho damaged paper for four years, Mr. East sent it to his agent at Jbondon, with instructions to sell it for what it would bring. The paper was ac cepted as a "purposed novelty," aud was disposed of at quite an advance over mar ket price. Mr. East was astonished at receiving an order from his agent for another large invoice of the paper. He was without the secret, and found himself in a dilemma. Upon mentionining it to bis wife, she told him about the accident. He kept the secret, and the demand for the novel tint exceeded his ability to supply it. A Brighton stationer took, a fancy for dressing his show-window, with piles of writing paper, rising gradually from the largest to the smallest size in use; and, to finish his pyramid off nicely, ho cut cards to bring them to a point. Taking these cards for "diminutive note-paper, lady customers were contin ually wanting some of "that lovely little paper," and the stationer found it ad vantageous to cut paper to the desired pattern. As there was no space fcr addressing the notelets after they were folded, he, after much thought, invented the enve- lono. whifih hn cut bv tha aid of metal plates made for tho purpose. The sale increased so rapidly that he was unable to produce the envtlopes fust enough, so he commissioned a dozeu houses to make them for him, and thus set going an important branch of tho manufacturing stationery trade. A Stranger's Mistakes. A few days ago a Western merchant who wanted to do some sight-seeing and bny his fall stock at the same time, en tered a dry goods jobbing house on Broad ay, and accosted the first person he met with, "Are you tho proprietor here?" "Not exactly the proprietor," was the reply. "At present 1 am acting as shipping clerk, but I am cutting my cards for a partnership next year by or ganizing noon prayer meetings in the basement." The stranger passed on to a very important-looking personage with a dia mond pin, and askod : "Are you the head of the house ?" "Well,' no; I can't say as I nm at pres ent, but I have hopes of a partnership in January. I'm only one of the travelers just now, but I'm laying for a S?200 pew in an up-town church, and that will mean a quarter interest hero in less than six months." Tho next man had his feet up, his hat 1 ock and a 20-cent cigar in his mouth and he looked so solid that the stranger sjirt : "You must run this establishment." "Me ?" Well, I may run it very soon. At present I'm the bookkeeper, but I'm expecting to got into a church choir with the old man's darling and become an equal partner here." The stranger was determined not to make another mistake. He walked around until he found a man with his coat off and busy with a case of goods, and he said to him : "The porters are kept pretty busy in here, I see." "Yes," was the brief reply. "But I suppose you are planning to invent a Gospel hymn book and sing the old man out of au eighth interest, aren't you?" ' "Well, no, not exactly," was the quiet reply. "I'm the old man himself." And all that the stranger said, after a long minute spent in looking the mer chant over, was : "Well, durn my but tons. Wall Street News. A fop, who was sauntering about a country village, saw a pretty face ct the window of a bouse near which a little boy was at play. "Bub," says he, "who is that fair lady looking out?" "Sis," was the laconic reply. "Will you not tell me if she is a maid or a matron?" asked the exquisite. "Neither; sho's a tail oress," answered the lad, resuming his play. i The reason young ladies take so kindly to the fashion of banging .their hair is because their mothers can't tell how much it is mnssed up after their fellows have gone. . i If spiritualistic seers happen to dis cover the ghost of a tramp jour, printer who recently set up "abdominal sounds" for abominable sounds, they will confer a life enduring favor by reporting such appearance to this office, Rome Sen tinel. ! . TTlth a rutol In HU rocket, If there is one pursuit which above all others is so peaceful in its nature as not to call for the services of armed men, it is the climbing of a tree for the purpose of gathering chestnuts. Hardly any two things can be more thoroughly incom patible than nuts and pistols. The club which is a weapon altogether different in its character and its aims from the pistol, has a sort of relation to the business of gathering chestnuts. But the club is used not so much by the boy who climbs the chestnut tree as by the one who stands on the ground and awaits the fall of the nuts. To fling a club up among the branches of a chestnut tree sometimes has the effect of bring ing chestnuts down. More often the effect is not felt on the chest nuts, but rather on the head of the boy who sends the club up. When in its descent it stuns him by a blow on the skull or sets the blood flowing from his cruelly bumped nose, the boy mutters a quotation from that old proverb which is to the effect that whatever goes up is sure to come down. The club is as clumsy a weapon as it is antiquated. Clubs can not be carried in hip-pockets with any great degree of convenience. According to the pictures in the Sunday school books, Cain slew Abel with a club. But the pictures do not represent Cain as drawing the weapon from his hip-pocket. Even New York policemen do not carry clubs in their hip-pockets, but hold them in their hands ready for instant service. The hip-pocket is a fashionable neces sity, and no clothier is up to the de mands of the age who makes trousers without it. All classes and conditions of masculine society must wear this pocket. The octogenarian grandfather, the peace ful clergyman, the scholarly professor, the boisterous politician, the growing youth and the little boy in his first trou sers, must alike havo a hip-pocket. While there are many purposes for which a pocket of this kind is exceed ingly convenient, there is no denying the fact that it was originally invented by some war-like person as a handy place ! for carrying a pistol. Although there are many wearers of this kind of pocket who carry no pistols, yet there are many, especially young men, who think the pistol quito as much of a necessity as the pocket. Therefore, they seldom go unarmed. Tho pistol is at much at home in their hip-pocket as eye-glasses are on the noses of near-sighted men, or - bangs on the foreheads of pretty girls. The young men who thus stuff pistols into their i pockets are not bloodthirsty follows. xney nave no uesire to mimier anybody. ' Most of them are poor shots in pistol practice and could not with the most approved form of modern weapon hit a cat across the street. They have no definite idea that ruffians will attack them with a view to taking their lives, nor have they positively come to the conclusion as to what they would do in ! the event of any such attack being made. They think they would bravely stand I their ground and discharge from four to i six balls into tho vitals of the intruding ! rufliun. The probability is that they would run away. A day or two ago the youthful son of a New York capitalist inflicted on himself a needless and dangerous woaud. He had gone up a tree to gather chestnuts. He fell, and in his fall discharged the pistol which happened to be in his hip pocket and which he had taken up the tree with him. At first it was reported that he was dead, and for some time it seemed probable that he would die. Had he died his life would have been sacri ficed to a foolish and unnecessary prac tice. If he lives he will carry with him the indelible mark of his folly. Had thero j been a bear up the chestnut tree or a I squad of hostile Indians concealed among tho branches the pistol might : have lieen a necessary instrument of self- defense instead of being one of self-tor- ' ture. There are thousands of lads all ovor the country who carry pistols just tut this unwise youth did. They go armed to school, to the store, to seo their girls, to walk on the streets and to en gage in the various duties and pleasures of life. When they have nothing else to do they pull out the pistol to see if it needs cleaning or to bo sure that the trigger works properly. Then they point the weapon at their little brother or sister, purely as a bit of the most hilarious fun. When the inevitable bullet crashes through brother or sister, and a bleeding little corpse lies on the floor, there are tears and remorse and exclamations of "didn't know it was loaded," and all that. The carrying of a concealed pistol is by law an offense against the public peace. It is a great pity that the law is almost a dead letter. Especially about election times it is bad to carry pistols. The angry passions may rise and shots may be fired with disastrous effect. There is not one case in ten thousand where a man who carries a pistol has reasonable need to use it. As for the boys, they havo no more need to carry pistols about i them than to arm themselves with Gat 1 ling guns, auu uip-puctt.et is a iiimiiy i: mi.. l i -i appendage to the raiment; but it serves quito as well for the stowage of the peaceful handkerchief as for an armory. Better sew it up than carry a murderous weapon in it. USEFUL RECIPES. A Luncheon Dish. Beat two eggs, mixing with them a tablespoonful of cream.

Fill a deep pudding tin, or dish, with apples cut in thin slices; sugar and cinnamon, or lemon, to sweeten and flavor to taste, and a little water; coyer with a thick crust made as above; bake until apples are tender; serve hot with hard sauce, or with cream and sugar; be sure to cut air holes in the crust to let the steam escape. Oyster Toast. This is a nice little dish for luncheon or a lato supper. Scald a quart of oysters in their own liquor, take them out and pound in a mortar, when they form a paste, add a little rich cream and some pepper. Get ready some thin, neat pieces of toast moistened slightly with boiling water and spread with lresh butter. Spread the oyster paste thickly upon tho toast, put a thinly cut round of lemon upon each piece, and arrange them on a platter garnished with parsley. Serve very hot. Gingerbread. Before the buckwheat season fairly begins, fresh gingerbread is nice with coffee for breakfast; it is convenient to moke it sometimes when you haven't bread onough for breakfast and dinner both. A simple way of making it is to take one teaenpful of mo lasses, four tablespoonfuls of hot butter or lard, stir in as much flour as you can, then put iu a tcaspoonf ul of saleratns, a heaping one of ginger, in a teacup and fill the cup almost full of boiling water; beat this ink the dough a little at a time. A Line of Change of Date. In pass ing around tho earth a day is lost or gained, as the course may be west or CTtst. Thus, if one goes west, with the sun, wheu he has gono completely around the earth he has overtaken the sun, so to speak, but in reality he has neutralizad tho motion of the earth in its revolution from west to east as much as is equivalent to a whole day or one revolution, and it is the same in effect as though the earth hod been motionless for one wholo day and the sun had not ap peared to move. In this way. the traveler would arrive at his starting place a day sooner than would apcar to bo right by his reckoning. And the contrary would happen if he went east, for he would have one more sunrise and one more sunset than if he hod staid at home. This will be apparent if ono can imagine himself going east as fast as tho earth revolves. He will clearly make two revolutions in space, and would pass the sun twice in twenty-four hours. In going west the sun would appear station ary, because the man mosmn fast an the earth, would neutral In one cose a day would in the other it would be ize this difference, saih from tho almanac one d middle of the Pacific OcV ' SHORT BITS. .

Man is a two-legged eccentric animal that deals in politics. It is much more difficult for a man to make a circumstance than it is for a cir cumstance to make a man. It requires wisdom to be able, and it requires an honesty to be willing, to call things by their right names. Man is the only creature that laughs; angols do not, animals can not, and dev iis will not. a Cincinnati oyer recently went in sane from political excitement. We suppose the more he read the madder he got. New Orleans . Picayune : Burglars never wait for an opomng in their busi ness. They go to work at once and make au opening. A little girl.noticing the glittering gold filling in her aunt's front teeth, exclaim ed : "Aunt Mary, I wish I had copper toed teeth like yours." A school boy in Detroit who was re quested to write down as many saints as he could think of, could only remember two. There is not the least flower but seems to hold up its head, and look pleasantly. in tho secret sense of the goodness of its aimignty maker. "How shall we get the young men to go to church?" is the title of an article in a religious paper. Get the girls to go. my sainted brother; get the girls to go to cunrcn. The worst slander often has it in some truth from which we learn a lesson that may make us wiser, and if we will be, better, whon the hrst smart .of it is over. He that repents every day for the sins of every day, when he comes to die will have the sin but of one day to repent of. luveu reckoning make the longest menus. It's a poor rule that won't work both ways. A Milwaukee girl married a bar ber and he turned out to be a rich baron in disguise. Two more excursion boat accidonts in the East river.

That boy will probably grow up to bo the editor of an independent paper. Philadelphia News. "I don't think I like these mosquitor ing places," said Job Shuttle, as he gazed long and mournfully at his face as re flected by the mirror. "I declare, I never met so many bills in one night be fore. Honored every one of 'em with a draft, ioo. Blood money, by jingo." The boy was still through tho long day. He made no harsh, discordant out cries; he tore not around the rooms; he jumped over no tables nor tipped over no chairs; he stood not on his head nor turned somersaults against the door. No, he was perfectly quiet, still. He was dead. A hotel is to be built at Quebeo on the spot whore Montgomery fell when lead ing the charge of the American troops on the citadel in 177.5. There will probably be charges made on that spot which for recklessness will throw that of Montgom ery entirely into the shade and, as before, the Americans will be the sufferers. Jnst as the visitors in the country and at the seaside get fairly used to washing their faces in a tin basin of water and wiping them on a very familiar towel, it is time to pack up and go home where the comforts of life are abundant. The season isn't quite long enough to permit of having a real good time. A backwoods preacher once elucidated as follows in connection with the parable of tho virgins: "In ancient times, my beloved hearers, it was the custom, after a couple had been married, for ten vir gins to go ont with lighted lamps and meet 'em on the way home, five of these virgins being males and five females." "Henry is so practical!" said Mrs. Youngwifo. "When mother went into the country last year, Henry sent all her things after her the very next day; he said she might want some of them, you know. And it's kind of funny," she weut on, "mother did want them, for she has never come 'hock to live with us since. Wasn't it queer?" A dentist never uses profane language nor gets arrested for assault and battery. When he feels particularly ugly he just holds on till he has a customer, and when he once gets his foreceps on that customer's molar, bis fiendish wrath is let on at full head.

The shops occupy a large three story brick building on this corner of Front and Madison streets, and are made up of the latest and most sp- j proved machinery in every department. These ma chines are driven by an immense sixty-horse power engine, and during the livelong day the mingling songs of swiftly moving machinery make a grand orwno ox muustry wimin mose wans. More than sixty men are here employed, bealdes the 1sxk number in the upholstery shops aud store, ffivinir to that number of families food and clothing, by this company, which in itself is a pleasure to the officers to contemplate, anu proves this a labor giving insti tution of which our city should feel proud.

Their carpet department is composed of latcut patterns in end Ichs profusion and the entire stock eonnmtH of staple goods. Having given this brief description of the business of the company, we will visit the Mechan ic's Pavilion aud take, a peep at the articles they have ou exhibition there. Passing in at the main entrance we make our way to the northern gallery. At the head of the broad staircaso our attention is first atttacled by the magnificent display of furni ture. We will pass on to the opposite end so that we may travel from west to east. The exhibit is di vided into three apartment, the walls bing drape! with olt gold and tOWer sheen, raw silk, upholster ing goods bound with maui-oolored border: Three haudftoimi chandeliers illumine the booths to the lightness aud UniUHTNESS Or SUNSHINE. The floors are covered with rich brussels carpet, Turkish rugs, etc. The first booth contains an ele gant book case composed of ebony, black walnut and birdseye maple polished as highly as a mirror. The front upper ortiou hss double doors of plate glass, while above, heavy carvings give to that portion ex quisite finish of superior design and workmanship. The lower portion has double panel doors, heavily carved and mounted with silver trapping. Next come an ingenious scrctsry with circular sibling cover revealing pigeon holes, drawers, etc.. which are moat conveniently arranged. As soon as the cover is raised the writing desk cau le drawn out so as to give ample room. iJirectly below are foidiug door which are thrown nM-n, giving room for com fortable seating and the feet. It is very neatly fin iHbed in black triimuiuc of ebony. A set of furni ture covered with borsehnlf adds to the variety, and bears evidence of being made tor service, in the center a magnificently carved black walnut table containing the various samples of marble used in tiniahlng furniture. The rear wall is occupied by a gold trimmed grate surmounted by a lieautifuw French plate mirror. I'pu the central table is a miniature representation of Cleopatra's ueedle.whieh airplays to gooa advantage tne maple burl and in laid white ash. and black walnut of which it is com- posed. It also bears a gold and a bronze nial, re ceived by the company from pmria and Philadelphia, The next section next invltto our attention. On the wall may br seen diplomas and certificates of award from various expositions, which speak more plainly than words of the excellence of litis company's work. A crimson plush lounge of Egyptian pattern, and a crimson plunh reclining chair are really luxurioim and afford, pleasure to examine or test. Thev would not be ont of place in a king's palace. An easy chair upholstered in crimson dauiak and trimmed in crimson fringe is very attractive. In the center of this booth is an inlaid table, the work of Daniel Weuneberg, an employe of the company, aud which is a masterpiece of art. The ground work ia of bieca ebony, in laid witn marquetrel. which is im ported from Paris, the desiims beimr strikiniflv beautiful. This is. without doubt, the finest piece of inlaid work on tne coast. The main body of the table is black walnut and maple burl, beautified with flashing lines oi fire gilt. The employment of SUCH SKILLED WORKMEN In this state is a new departure, indulged In bv this company alone. xt is an olive-green raw silk easy chair, the fabric being exquisitely flowered and up holstered upon a York frame. It is trimmed for service with olive-green plush, which forms a strik ing contrast. An old gold flowered raw silk patent rwrker is admired by all. there being but one inre like it on this coast. It was made to order, the up holstering goods being ordered especially for the iauy patron irom me eat. it is trimmed with criuiKon plush, which is complimentary iu color to the elaborately gilded black walnut frame. The last in this booth, of special mention, is a cardinal brown raw silk upholstered eay chair. It is flowered iu Japanese maze squares, trimmed with wine colored satin upon an Kgypttau frame and is the favorite piece of furniture with the ladies, who are the best Judges of these magnificent articles. In the- next booth we find a superb bedroom set of modern and unique pattern, ornamented with elwny panels aud massive carvinK of black walnut. The bureau consists of a main body of throe drawers, with silver ids ted han dies, set in a frame work of burl highly jiolished. This is surmounted by a fine slab of Tennessee marble. On either side rise four beautiful pillars to a neignt or several lect, ana wnicn support a can opy of heavily carved walnut and ebony with fret work lacings between. About one third way up the columns on eitner sitw eiegsnt polished walnut and ebony drawers are placed for toilet articles. The back portion of the upper section consists of three crystal sheet French plate mirrors with beveled edges one wiue ana two narrow, one on eitner side the same width as the space between the pillars. All portions are highly polished and we do not hesitate iu saying it is one of the most elegant single piecs ever exhibited in Oregon. The bedstead is in perfect keeping with the richness of carving and de sign displayed on the bureau. Its panels are genu Ine polished ebony, the carved walnut being perfec tion, the whole forming a perfect study, and to be appreciatedmnst be seenexamiued. It is a specimen of workmanship that any establishment on earth need not feel ashamed of. The washstand and commode combined Is also a perfect beauty, composed of ebo ny, walnut and burl, surmounted by a handsome marble slab. In the center of the booth is a very - HANDSOME EBOKT TABLE inlaid with marquetrel of artistic design, and fin ished in fire gilt. The bed is nlade up aud to the tired visitor at the fa)r has a particularly Inviting appearance. The spread and pillow shams are r al hand made laee of oriental pattern, the work of Mrs. Moudt and which add no little to the general beauty of the bedroom set. A patent rocker, upholstered in maroon and old gold trimmed with wine colored satin occupies a conspicuous place in one corner of the booth, and receivesltashare of admiration. Aside from this the company exhibit several articles be longing to and the work of private parties, of which we will mention a beautiful patent rocker and foot rest, upholstered in black satin upon which peacock feathers had been worked with the needle by Miss Rtephens; an embroidered ottoman, representing rusty wheat npon a black satin background, the work of Misa A. Stork; an ottoman upholstered in pink aattn and old gold by Miss Gertie Oallick. The upholstering work was done by Marxy Oallick who learned his trade in the shop of the company. An ottoman representing "Contented Pussy," in raised embroidery by Mrs. Harry 0. Bredin. Other articles of IcHaer importance go toward giving a finish to the magnificent display. We have thus given a very brief description of the origin of the Oregon Furni ture Manufacturing Company and the progress it has made during these years in order to show what enterprise and energy combined will do. It started in on a email scale and gradually expanded and add ed to until to-day it stands a monument of pride among the manufacturing establishments of the Pa cific coast. sJuHt such men as are at the head of this company are still ueedtd in Oregon to open and de velop her neglected resources and In turn launch np on the ocean of trafle articles of vertn such as any country on the glol would linger over with pride and satisfaction.
