FRIDAY, JULY 29, 1887. A SPRING GREETING. What is ttaig the blue birds call. Seeking mate and nesting tree. Flitting bright through forest hall. "It Is spring be joyous all!" This Is what the blue-birds can. . What is this the robins sing, Wooing from each leafing tree, ! Making all the woodland ring, f Merrily, cheerily? . "It is spring, gladsome spring !M X, "J This is what tne robins sing. -, ' What is this our blithe hearts say, As the wakened earth we see Broidering her robes so gay, ' Merrily, cheerily? X "Spring has come in spring's old way !B ' This is what our blithe hearts say. ;' "Spring's old way," and spring's old song, , Only sung in newer key; Gladdened lives to spring belong; ' Merrily, cheerily, Sing we then, sing loud and long, "Welcome, Bpring, in spring's old way !"' Mary Clark Huntington, in Good HouielMpiruj. , LIMEKILN CLUB. Y A Dastardly Deed Which Led Brother Gardner to Dellrer a Sound Lecture. The thirteenth dastardly attempt to destroy Paradise Hall was revealed at five o'clock Saturday evening when the janitor arrived to place the hall in order for the usual meeting. Ever since the attempt of last October bear-traps and spring-guns have been set at every door and window when the hall was closed, and this fact was generally -known to Iho public The human hyena who had resolved in his own base mind to destroy the headquarters of the club procured a ladder, mounted to the roof, and then cut a hole and descended alongside of a chimney. In this way he thought to escape all dangers pre pared for him, and ho no doubt chuckled with fiendish glco as he dropped down into the library. His first move was to demolish the bust of Cmkto. This was one of the first busts donated tothcclnb, and has represented Horace Greeley, Napoleon Bonaparte, Franklin Tierce, George Washington and several other distinguished nicu by turns. The villain seized a crowbar skuidinz in a corner of the library and demolished the bust at one awful sweep. Ho the started for the club safe, doubtless intending to drive the crowbar through and through it, and then vengeance overtook him. As he stepped into the passage behind the secretary's desk a bear-trap awaited his coming with yawning jaws and clashing teeth. What occurred is par tially a matter of guesswork. The trap was found -sprang and in its jaws was a bloody boot Bloody tracks led from thence to the ante-room, and there the dastard had raised a window and leaped down on the roof of the grocery and es caped to the ground. The occurrence probably took place Friday night, as the policeman on the beat remembers of hearing a loud, long shriek about eleven o'clock. It sounded to him like the voice of a strong man about to give up the fight for his life, and though he in vestigated the neighborhood he was made no wiser. How the villain suf feredhow he wrung his hands and vowed to live a better life hereafter how .the sweat of agony stood on his forehead and his ej-cs grew fiercely wild can be imagined by any one who has visited the scene. It is supposed that he had a "pal" in the alley, and that this man finally came to his relief and pried the trap open far enough to permit the foot to - be pulled out of the boot As soon as the meeting was called to order the janitor reported the case, accompanied by a war map, and Brother Gardner arose and said: "My frens, dis incident furnishes me wid an opportunity to address you on dc subiick of Goodness vs. Badness. If, when a baby was three days ole, he could reasota an1 calkilatc, he would reason as follows: 'Hcah I ar a sound, healthy boy, wid a big show of growiTT up to manhood. Dc more I kick an' yell an' misbehave doorin' my infancy de mo' spankin's I'll receive. Dc better I mind an' de goodcr I ar' as a boy dc easier will I slip along. As a young man I shall be upright an' honest As a middle-aged man I shall act on dc squar'. As an ole man I shall quit chawin' plug tobacker, read up on dc Bible an' go to bed airly.' "Wickedness doan' pay, figgcr it up as you will. Wo hev had many in stances of it in dis club, an' we ar' sui'r rounded wid 'em at home. When Whalebone Howker stole a whcclbarrcr bclongin' to Pickles Smith he at fust re joiced an' was glad. He felt dat he was two dollars ahead of de game, and he poked hisself in de ribs fur a smart man. Howsumcbcr, he hadn't had dat stolen vehicklc in his posseshun two hours when his game rooster died, dc dog-catcher picked up his dog, an' a man who owed him four dollars went into bankruptcy. He could figgcr dat he was eight dollars out of pocket, an' den Pickles foun' out who stole his wheelbarrer an' cum ober an' licked Whalebone widin an inch of his life besides. "Take dc case of Bermuda Jones, who libs nex' doah to Condensed Cun ningham. Bermuda sot down wid a piece of chalk an' figgered up dat wick edness paid two hundred per cent, an' lie went ober to de grocery; backed up agin a cracker bar'C an' while he in gaiged do grocer in a religus discushion wid one hand, he filled his hind pocket wid crackers wid de odder. Ho started out of dat grocery feeling dat he was seben cents ahead an' still gain in', but what was de result? A small boy, who was in dar to buy a cent's worf of taffy, seed de hull performance an' told dc grocer. Bermuda was fol lcred home, knocked down in the kitchen an' made to give up de fo' cane scat cheers in his parlor to settle do case. Did he profit by his badness? Did he make any two hundred per cent on dat? "Agin, take de case of Kurucl Lc fling well Kabar. I h jd six Leghorn hens in my coop, an' he coveted 'em. Instead of comin' to me in a frank, honest way an' offerin' to buy dose hens at deir value an' gibin' me his note due in thirty days, he steals upon my coop in dc gloom of midnight an' forcibly cap tivates my poultry. He chuckled to hisself ober his smartness an' he figgered up his two hundred per cent, prolit, but a Nemesis war' on on his trail. He left one of de ole blue patches on his pants on a nail in de coop, an' when I found my hens gone I walked ober to his humble cabiu an' took him by dc neck an' drawed him out doors. Some of you hev probably heard dat he went into a decline soon arter dat an' dat when dc post-mortem was held three of his ribs war' found stickin' out of his back. "1 hev figgered on goodness an bad ness, an' I tell you dat badness doan pay. Some of you ma' hev iifted a ham at de co'ner grocery widont bein' caught at it but yit how did you feci when a strange knock cum at de doah? Guilt was sich a burden on jer soul dat dc ham tasted like saw-dust, an' you woke up at midnight to sec spooks standi n' by yer beds. Dt? good man goes ai'oim' wid his hat on his car, afeared of nobody an' lookin" ebery body square in de eye. It he, happens to see de patrol wagon gwinc along he doan' turn pale. If anylxxly happens to lay a hand on him he doan' sink inter his butcs. "How ar' it wid de bad men? He's alius lookin' fur b'ar-traps an' spring guns. He's alius 'spec-tin' to be 'rested an' sent up. A strange knock at bis cabin doah sends a chill up his back. Go what' he will, lie feels guilty and af eared, an' some line day when he am out injoyin' dc balmy breeze 'long comes a detective an' claps de hand cuffs on him, an' away he goes to Jack sou fur ten y'ars. You can figger an' figgcr, but goodness am bound to como under dc wire a full length ahead." The president's address created con siderable excitement, and Waydown Bebec was ready with the following preamble and resolution: "Wbbhbas. Goodness ur' moa' profitable dan badness, an' also caaier on de conshisncc; now, dar'forc "Rtolrtt, Ddt it ar' do sense of thi i mretin' dat we stick to goodness.'' The resolution was adopted by a unamious vote, and the meeting" ad journed with much gd feeling. De troit Free Press. WENT BACK TO MA. A TVould-Ile Dlme-N'ovel Hero's Misery and Kepentance. He was a little fellow not over t welve years old, and he was fitting behind a box over at the - Omaha depot the other morning softly crying and looking very dirty and forlorn. What's the matter?" we asked. "Haint nothiu' the matter," lie said, defiantly, sitting up straight," hastily brushing away his tears and pushing back his jacket a little so as to display the handle of an old revolver in his pocket. Then ho looked off across the river at the strange buildings ami lost his bravcrv, and buried his heart a-jain and sobbed through his (ears: "O, mister, I've been a-niiiiiiti' away an' I want 'o go home." "What made you run away?" "I thought it would be nice, but it haint, no, it haint," and he rested his face in his hands and looked (he picture of woe. "Dick Dagger had heaps o' fun, but I haint had a bit." "Who was Dick Dagger?" "Didn't vou ever hear o" him? lie was the boy scout of th; Rockies, an' I wanted to be like him. There haint Indians what'll hurt a feller round here, is there?" "No," "I wouldn't shoot 'cm if there was. Dick shot 'cm, but I don't want to. I want to get back home, but mebby I never will agaiu," and once more his tears flowed. "Where did you live?" "O, I live down at Marion, in Illinois, and it just 'bout killed me riding in that old freight car, a I hurt my knee, an' I'm cold and haint had no break fast, nor supper, neither. I wish I'd never heard of Dick I don't see how he got along so well and if I ever get homo again and see my my :ny ma ," but the thought of his mother was too much for him. "I don't waut to hunt Indians, or bears, or nothiu' nor rescue no maid ens, an' I'm tired of that old thing!" and he pulled a rusty revolver out of his pocket that hadn t been tu od oft for ten years, and threw it across the track. "Please, mister, get me some thing to eat, and I'll work all day for you," and he looked up pitifully and straightened his little cap on his curly head. We took him along and he ate three or four meals in one, 'but even after that hedidn't say a word about extermi nating: the Indian. The next dav a grave-looking father arrived looking for a very liomcsicK boy, ami tncy went back together. So the Government lost another scout, but an anxious mother got back a boy who will never run away again. Dakota Bell. A MAN OF JUDGMENT. An Arknnsatr Gentleman Whose Business Principles Are Above Reproach. "Regardless of a previous engage ment a man should attend to the most important business first," said a man who claimed promptness as one of his virtues. "Do you know Bill Aikers?" "Yes," some one replied. "Well, Bill is a shining example of this principle. Some time ago he had an appointment to meet, a fellow who had promised to box his jaws. The time came, but Bill had not -arrived, and the fellow had begun- to cast re proaches on Bill's courage, when, a note from Bill, whiclf read as follows, was handed him: 'Just as I was coming to have my jaws 1xxed, I got a communi cation from a fellow telling me that if I would come down to his place immedi ately he would shoot me. As a fair minded man, you know that I could not neglect a case of shooting merely to attend to the slight matter of having my jaws boxed.' O, yes," the old fel low continued, "Bill has a wonderful judgment in regard to business. Takes up the most important matters first, and is consequently never very badly left." Arkansaw Traveler. Two Excellent Mottoes. "I am very sorry, Mrs. Hardtack," said the new loardcr, "but I'm a little short this week, and I'll have to ask you to wait a little for my board, though my motto is "To pay as I go.' " "Can't "do it," replied Mrs. Hard tack. "My motto is, "Pay or go." A. Y. Sun. Warmth of Drained Soil. The curious paradox is presented in nnderdraining land that it freezes more deeply in winter, but so soon as spring comes it rapidly grows warmer than land not drained. There are much greater extremes of temperature, and both heat and cold favor the disintegra tion of the soil and the development of plant food. In well-drained land there is no surplus of water beyond what tho soil will naturally retain. Its freezin"-, therefore, docs not make a solid stratum of ice, and when it thaws the water percolating to the tiles is followed by air which in spring is always Marnier than the soil. At night when the sur face freezes the expansion of tho soil expels the air, which is replaced on the morrow when the sun is shining brightly. Stagnant water in the soil prevents the circulation of air, and thus keeps down the temperature until the water is grad ually dried out by the heat of the sum mer Indianapolis Sentinel. 17k v. f..
