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
"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
"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
"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,
"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

WENT BACK TO MA.
A TVould-Ile Dlme-N'ovel Hero's Misery
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,
"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
"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.
