The? are falling, slowly falling,
Thick upon the forest side
Severed ?rom the noble branches
Where they waved in beauteous pride.
They are falling in the valleys
Where the early violets spr ing,
And the birds in sunny springtime
First the grandest dulcet ring.
! They are falling on thc streamlet,
Where the silvery v.-aters fiow,
j And upon its placid bosom
Onward with tho waters go.
They are falling in the churchyard j
Where our kindred sweetly sleep ;.
Where the idle winds of summer
Softly o'er our loved ones sweep.
They are falling, sadly falling,
Close beside our cottage door ;
Pale and faded like the loved ones"
Who ha?ve gone forever more.
They are falling, and the sunbeams
Shine in beauty soft around :
Yet the faded leaves are falling
Falling on their grassy mound.
They are falling, ever falling,
When-the autumn breezes sigh
When the stars in beauty glisten1
Bright upon the midnight sky.
They are falling when the tempest
Moans like ocean's hollow roar
When the tuneless winds and' billows
Sadly sigh for evermore.
They are falling, they are falling,
While our saddened thoughts still go
? To the sunny days of childhood,
In the dreamy long ago.
j And their faded hues reoind us
Of the blighted hopes and dreams
Faded like the falling leaflets
Cast upon tue icy streams.
The L.ast of a Proud and Wealthy Family.
The story of a woman's devotion un
i der fearful trials and crosses will never
I be fully told It began with the first
j mother, was the sole comforter of the
j first murderer, and came down to be
; ever present, adorning life with a heav
i only gleam in the home of the humble
j and proud alike. Yesterday morning
! two Sisters of Mercy might have been
! seen in the ladies* waiting room in the
^SS^J^land Depct,_on^4h, *? -??y. fcg gt.
i Louis. TnV^faceT of one of these holy
j women would have caused the most
j heartless wretch living to stop for an
j instant at least to look upou its sweet
? ness, its beauty, its benignity, all made
j heavenly by a visible and speaking
i something that told of a life of woe and
; hard trial. This nun is the last of a
! once proud and wealthy family, that
i before the rebeliion was renowned in
j the S-a?e of South Carolina for all that
j went to distinguish the elite of that
! proud State.
Her story has few parallels. When
jitKe war broke out the family consisted
I of the father and mother, four socs and
j two daughters, of whom- this Sister of
? Mercy was the youngest, then barely
\ sixteen. The family belonged to the
j Episcopal Church, but the daughters
; were educated at the Academy of the
j Sacred i'leart at Georgetown, now part
j of the City of Washington. Both were
j hurriedly brought from school when the
! war broke out to bid adieu to their
: father and brothers, who were of the
j first to fall into line. With them went
j the betrothed of the elder sister and the
llover of the younger, only sons of a
j neighboring planter of great wealth
I and social standing. The care and
! management of the immense estate Were
j left to the overseer and the small army
j of slaves-. At the battle of Antietam
? the father and one of the sons fell, and
j another was brought home to die in a
! little while of his wounds. Misfortune
i began to fall fast. The overseer, who
j from the start had been unworthy cf his
j charge, shortly after the death of these
j three members of the family fled, leav
! ing the estate hopelessly entangled and
! the slaves in a state of uncontrollable
! insubordination.
j The remaining sons came horne on a
! summons to attend their dying mother,
j They found their elder sister broken in
[spirit aud health, but the younger
! brave and cheerful amid the terrible
; straggle. Before the "boys returned tO'
I the field they buried mother and sister,
i and one remained to manage the estate,
j while the other went back to fight. Tn
the field he was attached to the stair of
Gen. Beauregard, and was killed while,
in obedience to orders, Le was conduc?
ting a reconnoitre.
Thus there remained but the younger
son and daughter of thc family.
Sherman's devastating army was
coming, and scarcely a son of those left
to Heath Carolina failed to shoulder a
gun to meet him, among them this only
protector of the beautiful and accom?
plished lady, who, as a Sister cf Mercy,
was on lier way to Sr.. Louis yesterday.
Before Sherman reached the plantation,
which was now in equally unworthy
hands as a trust, the slaves had set
fire to every building, ever so small, on
it besides murdering ttic agent. The
young mistress, thc day before, with
a faithful slave, had fled to the planta?
tion of her lover, from which she
viewed the fiamos wbicb wrapped her
beloved home in ruin. From this
shelter she was obliged to fly on the ap?
proach of the army, for it, like scores of
others, was left in ashes. She Uow
found herself in thc city of Charleston,
tt dependent on the bounty of others.
The terrible charge about Atlanta soon
followed, and among thc first to fall was
her last brother und the lover of her
eldest sister, who, till now, had gone
through tho war unscratched, but tear?
ing high honors.
No cue was left now but her i ?vor,
and he catii o back without his left-arm.
l-'r 'i and destruction wore cvery
?vhero. Slio was absolutely left without
a malo relative, und the few remaining
of her own -ex were like herself en?
gulfed in misery and ruin.
Tn the course of time the one-armed
lover and the brave little rx* tn nan s of
this blighted family were married, the
young wife having in tho meantime
barely supported herself by reaching
and her accomplishment., of tho needle.
They very quickly removed tn Scy?
York, where the husband had secured
a position in a cotton house. Two
handsome children were b'>rn to them,
and lifo seemed measurably bright
when suddenly the husband was taken
sick, and, after lingering for mouths,
died. Soon after his death a newly
born infant died in the hour of its birth.
The mother struggled heroically through
these new miseries, but when health
and activity had come back, not- only
tho past few years of prosperity were
gene, but the furniture must go too,
and thc apartments must be given up.
All this came to pass.
Looking about for a new anchorage
the widowed mother bethought herself
of an old school mate in St. Louis, to
whom she communicated her situation.
The school mate requested her to come
to St. Louis, where she would find
ample field for o'er* accomplishments.
With a hopeful heart the poor mother
started for St. Louis, being obliged to
carefully nurse the oldest of her chil?
dren all the way, he Having- been some?
time ailing. Three days after lier
arrival in St. Louis thc boy died and
before she could fairly look around- the
remaining child bore the stamp of the
grave in his sweet little face. Ile
simply appeared to wither away, and
never spoke except to call for his
brother and his papa. The stricken
woman was unable to attend this last
link to the grave, being confined to
what must seem her death bed'. She
arose, however, but the bright golden
hair that in days gone by fell about her
like a- cloud of sunshine was now as
white as the driven snow. The hair
faded and the beauty somewhat, but the
heart of oak was as staunch as of yore,
and, as events have since proven, so
completely seasoned that to-day it
yearns to bear the sorrows of other
hearts besides its own.
And this sweet faced Sister of Mercy
seen in the Hock Island Depot yester?
day morning is that white haired, oaken
hearted mother who was unable to sec
her darling boy laid under the sod.
She became a convert to the Catholic
Church, entered thc convent and be?
came a member of the band' of holy
women who gave her the accomplish?
ments by which she was enabled to bear
up against poverty and wa.ut . And
she is cheerful, and hopeful and stout?
hearted.-Chicago Neus.
Mutilated Coins.
The article which bas been going thc
rounds of the press (and which was
recently published by us) to the effect
that"^?hs?^>Covernmeut had issued a
seale of disco ti nlT?b-^ijl coins with holes
in them, or otherwise mlirrfe-cd, turns
out to be a hoax. Business men b"^
came uneasy, and actually began tc
refuse them. The editor of the Siates
j ville Landmark wrote to the Treasury
Department in regard to the matter, and
the following is the reply:
SIR-Your letter of the 12th instant,
asking whether the government has
fixed the value of silver coins with
holes punched in them, has been re?
ceived. ^
In reply I have to inform you thal
this department has fixed no specific
value on the coins in question, aud
that there is no provision of law or reg?
ulation of the department for the re?
demption of any coins so mutilated as
to be unfit for circulation. Such coins
may be disposed of as bullion at theil
bullion value, which would, of course,
be less than face value and would var)
according to degree of mutilation.
Assistant Secretary.
Most of the street-car companies in
New York and the elevated railway
companies have issued orders directing
J their employes not to receive mutilates
coins in payment of fares. It seem;
that the punching and 'clipping' o
silver coins has become a regular busi?
ness with a class of petty rascals, wh(
expend more labor in'stealing a dollai
I in this way than would suffice to carr
j the same amount if applied to some
I honest purpose. The Manhattan New?
Cum puny has also refused- to receiv<
mutilated ccin. One of tho officers o;
thc company recently took a bagful o
small coins of the face value of $100 tc
the United States mint, and the bulliot
j value was found to be only $79. Ht
I then sold them to a broker for ?95, wh<
j will no doubt put them into circulatior
j again at the first opportunity.
When to Plant Fruit Trees
Fruit trees may be planted witto sue
cess either in the Fall or Spring. W<
j have had no difficulty in planting a
I either season of the year. We thin!
that generally the farmer has mon
time in the Fall than in the Spring
but it is not the best time to move th<
trees till about the first* of November
and they should be deuuded.of leave;
before moving. The next importan
operation is in digging the holes. Toi
many dig them like post holes, remov
tog the smallest amount of dirt possji)!'
ami then crowding iu the re-v-ts. S boule
the trees die undr such treatment, a:
they may be expected to do, thc blam<
is placed anywhere but where it be?
The holes should be made so as to re
ceive t!ie roots in the same form ant
order as they grew before being trans?
planted, and if anything a little deeper.
Thc centre of the pit where the trc<
rests should be higher than the sides- <
little soil thrown and made into tin
form of a mound; then raise thc rvots am
grasping thestem of the tree and the root;
gathered round it in one hand; have youl
a! tat da nt throw in tue earth while yoi
let the roots down into tue soil in tin
position in which they originally grew
Continue this till the roots are all dispos
ed of, then press the s<>il down llrmlj
around them, leaving the earth aroum
the rords a little higher than you intent
have it remain. This will settle s'
that i;; the spring ye:i may have little ti

Admission to Holyrood Palace i's had
- by tickets purchased at thc porter'?
3 room for a shilling, with coupons for
t the gallery, the 'presence chambers,'
i Queen Mary's private apartments and
5 the chapel royal.
; The picture gallery contains portraits
i of the Scottish kings from the earliest
, period down to James I. of England.
? I forget who it was that said, looking
t at these pictures, that the Scottish kings
> were conspicuous for bottle noses. To
- me they seemed to have some variety in
i ! nasal features, as well as in color of
1 j hair, the canvases showing severally
s i black, blonde, brown, auburn and most
2 i pronouncod red. But, contrary to thc
- J received physiological theories, the long
j department royal Sect?, of whatever
- i color of hair, exhibited a vronderful
1 j sameness of complexion This may be
- accounted for by thc fact that the por
? traits, except those of a half a dozeu
- latter kings-, were painted" by contract
i by a German artist, who doubtless

y I M.o~t interest attaches to thc private
-j apartments of "(?ttc.cn Mary; her dre.^s
I in<^ room, iu au odd curucr ul thc north
east tower, hardly the size of a respect?
able kitchen closet ; thc room close by
where the little supper party" was so
rudely disturbed and from whence Itiz
zio was dragged forth to meet his death
near thc farther threshold cf the State
Chamber; its tapestried walls and crim?
son hung canopies. The private stair?
way following the curve of the tower
through which Darnley and thc assass?
ins gained the supper room, is gloomy
and dark enough. The story has been
told so often that standing in the very
apartment, meager enough in its fur- j
nishings, one seems to see the startled I
supper guests, thc shrinking musicians, I
the furious conspirators, the straggling I
Queen, and all' the turmoil and con- I
fusion of the scene.
At the farther entrance to the pre?
sence chamber in a dark corner behind (
tlie door, the attendants will point out j
some faint spots as the blood of l?izzio. !
But if you'question thens they will not
authenticate the fact, but tell thc tale
as it was told to them. Rizzio fell and
died at that particular place, and Queen
Mary caused a new partition to be con?
structed across the presence chamber to
shut the direful spot from view. The !
critical observer will discover that a ?
new floor has replaced the one trodden
by thc 'perturbed' spirits of Mary Stu?
art's court, thereby settling the blood
stains question.
The Chapel Royal of Holryrood ad?
joins thc palarc. It is a* roofless ruin,
with crches and monuments yet remain?
ing which measurably illustrate its
former architectural beauty. The ques?
tion of restoriug it bas been often-raised.
There are so many ruined and forsaken
churches in the British Isles that it is
doubtful if anything will be done beyond ]
preserving the chapel from further
The finest monument in Scotland,
perhaps the finest in the world com?

Walter Scott. It stands conspicuously

Bob Ingersoll cn Stingy Men.
I despise a stingy mau. I do not see
how it is possible for a man tedie worth
?5,000,000 or ?10,000,000 in a city
full of vant, when he meets" almost
every day the withered hand of beg?
gary and thc white lips of famine. How
a man can withstand all that and hold
in the clutch of his hand ?:20,000.000
or ?30,000,000, is past my comprehen?
sion. I do not see how he can do it.
I should not thiuk he could do it any
more than he could keep a pile of lum?
ber when hundreds of thousands were
drowning in thc sea. Do you know I
have known men who would trust their
wives with their hearts and homes, but
not with their pocket-books-not with
a dollar. When I see a mau of that
kind, ? always think he knows which is
the most valuable. Think of making
your wife a beggar ! Think of her ask?
ing you every day for a dollar, or two
dollars, or to humbly beg for fifty cents.
'What did you do with that dollar I
gave you T Think of having a wife
that is afraid of you. What kind of
children do you expect to have with a
beggar and a coward for a mother? Oh,
I tell you, if you have but a doiiar in
the world, and you have to spend it,
spend it like a kiug ; spend it as if it
were a dry leaf, and you the owner of
an unbounded forest. That's the way
to spend it. I had much rather be a
beggar and spend my money like a beg?
gar. If it's got to go, let it go. Get
the best you can for your family, and
look thc best yourself When you used
to go courting how nice you looked.
Ah. your eye was bright, your step
was light, rrnd you just put on the vcr}'
best you could. Do you kuow that it
is insufferable egotism in you to sup?
pose that a woman is going' to love you
always, looking as bad as you can T
Think of it! A>ny woman on-earth will
be true to you forever when you do
your level best.

Tilo Jersey Cow.
[Winasboro News anti Uer.?!-1.]
Thinking thai some of your th?
readers may wish to hear tivy exj:
ence with this noted breed of bu
cows, I shall briefly state it. I
gan the breeding* of the thorough!}
.Jerseys in 1876, and hare folio-,
it persistently ever since. On
investigation of the grounds, 1 Ii
decided that the Jersey is thc com
farmer's cow, and that, when this ,
should come to be generally rccog
ed, she would be sure to como to
front. I'p- to that time (1^76)
was generally considered as har
more tl?an a fancy animal, or a .'gen
man's cow." My theory was t
the Jers'y must before many ye
demonstrate lier economical value
Clearly that- tho iaticy demand wo
become insignificant compared *?
the utilitarian con;maud. The cv
lias already shown that the the
wes well founded, and there is rous
to believe that five years more >
show that 1 have greatly undcrestii
ted the chance. The result of my J
soy business has been entirely sa
factory. It is pleasant to see that
breed'is now very generally reece
zed as not only of thc best bun
making, but is concluded to be
most Initter-makiug cow*. If is g
erally allowed that no other cow v
produce so much butter out of a
of hay as a good Jersey, and* that
other cow will give thc butter st
good quality. Ten years- ago,
Jersey was high priced, becai
gentlemen wanted her for their law
To day she is still higher-priced,
cause she is recognized as thc foun<
j of the comiaic race of butlerme
cows.- Ten years ago the high pr
depended on the deer-like look,
day it depends on such excellency
butter qualities as will lead tc 1
greatest improvement of the race
practical purposes. Four huncln
six hundred, and even one thousa
dollars, is frequently paid for a J
soy, combining with some lan
points or very famous strain of bloc
a good butter yield ; but leaving c
fancy color and neted pedigree,
good registered Jersey cow will
day bring at least four times the pri
of a good native. Why is it that ?
Jersey has como to out rank the i
live lour or five times to one, and
stand on an equality with any tl
roughbrcd in the world ? it
because the Jersey is the most pro
able producer of thc best butter, ti
' th cr ? c4?? m n g_ej?u ms a reji^l ?^ath?
ted hy those who have mest fairly a
thoroughly investigated the merits
this breed :
Thc Jersey is a thoroughbred a
possesses, as fully as any other ti
roughbrcd, capacity to respond
feed, beyond the amount required 1
j thc daily repairs for thc wastes oft
body, and will make this return
butter, as surely as the short-ho
will make it in beef, or thc Ayrcsb!
in milk.
The Jersey* being thorotrgubre
can be depended on, to transmit
breeding, in most cases thc gm
qualities of one parent, in many eas
those of botii parents, and very cfo
thc best qualities of remote as well
immediate ancestors.
The color of the Jersey butter
better, the year round, and on ;
i kinds of food; that! that of any otb
j breed. Thc Jersey makes more bi
i ter ?ii proportion to her size and fee
Having smaller body, she has ?
much less to build up in youth, ai
to support and repaii day by day.
The Jersey comes in at fro
eighteen to twenty months, thus ma
lug a saving, over most other breed
of a year of iced, handling and pr
The Jersey", as a rule, goes dry
shorter period than any other breed
many produce butter and calve
without cl ry i up; o if. Thc Jersey wi
stand more corn and other wfntc
grain feeding without getting fa
?he will put the oil into her bag, ral:
cr than into her carcass.
Thc Jersey has shown herself t
well ?'ted to thrive in our climat
and on all kinds of food as any bree:
and some she surpasses: ?he lui
hereditary thoroughbred tendencit
which entitle her to the favor of scies
tifie breeders. Tho quality and e:
tent of lier butter-yield arc piacin
her highest in the estimation of butte;
makers-and thc beauty of her joint
and colorings will make her unrivale
in American lawns. The short-hoi*
j would never have reached a ny thin;
like its present high scale ov price.*
on any laney basis. What gives th
great value in the short horn, th
Jersey or any other breeding stock
is that little stipcr-cxceiience of
practical character ' which promises
lasting improvement in all posterity
A- few years ago, at our fans the Jei
soys occupied- a few retired pens

Nettie Corraz went to play with her j
three little brothers and two- other ch il- j
dren on Indian Hill Monday- afternoon, j
She would have been 10 years old next ?
Sunday. Indian Hill is not. high but j
its ten affords a' 2ne outlook upon j
Mofrat's pond and Ridgewood, N J, !
When the six children got tired of play- j
i i ri g on the hill they went down to play !
j on thc trestle work. There is no struc- j
turo above tba rails. and no footpath j
beside them, but there is opportunity .
for an agile person to take refuge from !
thc single track when a train passes on j
the projecting ends .of the tius. The j
tics are only three or four feet above \
I the shallow water beucath them, and i
! for the most of the woy the trestlcwork !
j is built ever dry ground. Mr. Wake- j
I enan, a neighbor, saw rho children, and j
I ordered them oif. and Mrs. Morris, an- j
? other neighbor, sent special word to the !
! children that the train which "leaves
Montclair at 5:05 o'clock would come
along and kill them all unless they went
away. They were near thc south end
of the bridge. At 5 :08 the train thun?
dered'along through the cut, around
tho curve, arid'dewn cn to the bridge.
The engineer saw the cbwUferi, put' on
thc brakes, and' reversed his engine,
but it waa impossible to stop' trie' train
suddeuly on such a grade. All the
children except Nettie and her brother
George, who is a bo tit 4 years oi'dv
scrambled out on the cuds of thc ties.
She saw that he could not be trusted to
cling to the tics, and that he must be
dropped through between ties' to' thc
dry ground beneath. Thc little fellow
was afraid and clung to tue timbers.
This delayed her only a fevrv- seconds,
but she did not have even a second to
sparc. It is doubtful even whether she
pushed him clear through. Ile was
found afterward alive and well on the
ground beneath, but he says he touched
the cars when they went over him.
When she sprang away toward the end
of a tie it was too late. Her body was
beyond the track, but her left leg was
severed at thc thigh and the other crush?
ed below thc knee. *
The train was brought to a stop a
moment afterward, and thc engineer,
with tears in his eyes, helped pick her
up. She'did not lose consciousness.
.Oh I'm killed I' she exclaimed.
