It was a favorite josh upon old Farmer Col I i n g wood !s I'urm to cull ilnc Ellison Susy's admirer. And .Susy, when she heard the half taiiuted juke, only smiled softly, and al I heir next iiieetingoiily gave doe :i kinder or sweeter smile. She. was the orphaned daughter of si country clergyman, whose ??ole legacy to her had been (he best ed? ucation his own profound learning could enable him to give her.? W lieu she was but a little girl her lumber died, and she. had been her father's housekeeper, scholar and companion until her nineteenth birthday, when the Kev. Stephen Coyle was likewise taken from the child to Ins la^r hing rest. The giuul people of the parish, knowing Susy's advantages lor study, and her old home being the parsonage, she had removed her personal pos? sessions and had taken up her abode at Farmer Gollingwood's,he having for years "boarded" the school ma'am. It was a merry, happy farmer's household where Susy lived. Julie and Mnllie Colliugwood were strong armed, blnoiiiir.g damsels, full of coquettish grace, and with load voices and active habits.? Charles ami .lames, the sons, were, Hue specimens of young farmors, ami the old man and his wife were kind-hearted, homely country folks. She had been out but a little time in her position as instructress I to the tow headed youngsters of llreiit Hill, when coming up the road from school lale on a summer's j altern.uui, she hen if 1 wailing and ] groans in one of the cottiigos, where, often before she lud heard the same sounds. "Poor Joe?" she whispered piti ; fully. For she knew a deformed idiot was being beaten by a cruel mas? ler. Kut on that allcrnooii, as she > drew near the cottage, the door j suddenly Hew open ami tlie idiot limped howling ami speeding a*j last as his infirmities allowed, out I at the opening, while followed him. a strong brutal man. half drunk, nourishing an immense cowhide. ! The man cursing and swearing, held the whip over the cowering, shrinking lad, bill when it fell it struck not Joe bur Susy, who bent over him, one arm raised, to ward oil'the blow. Brute as he was the halt drunken wretch stood aghast wln ii the heavy lash cut across Susy's slemler arms and shoulders. ??1 beg your pardon, ma'am," lie said, ??! did not, see you in the way." -Ilow can you?" she cried, her pale cheeks criiiuou with womanly indignation???how can you, a strong man,strike a poor trembling | boy like that?a boy whose iiiflrin it ies should appeal for protection to I any man who was not an arrant COWillf II" ??Well, come, now, that's pretty strong," said the man. "Don't I feed ami lodge him lor what he j does, and ain't 1 got a right to beat him if he does everything wrong* He don't earn his salt, he don't." "Don't keep him then." "1 guess you're right. 1 won't; j Joe you may go to the mischief,] but don't come here again." The good people at the farm looked rather astonished when Susy appealed, followed by the stooping, limping figure of the village idiot. But the farmer broke into hearty laughter when she told of her iu Icrteicnoe and begged a shelter tor the boy. ??Stay here? Of course he can slay here,'' he said. '-We'll Und something tor the poor beggar to do. Km io think of your spunking up to Uob Carter after that lav-hiou. i d have given my best cow to see it. A little white baiitoni pecking a mad bull would be nothing to it. And he ran oil'. Well, well. Here, Charley, show Joo the room over lite barn. Lie can sleep there, and he'll soon lcaru where to coine to meals.'' So (he idiot found his hard bed on thefloor replacedby a cosy barn chamber, his scanty food exchanged for geiieroiu plenty and for blows, kicks and ciTrses,and forhard woik, v>v?rt a.- king his brain, he had kind words and light labor suited tu his comprehension. And under this treatment he brightened visibly, performing his simple task willingly and well.? I When winter came Susy herself al? tered a suit and overcoat of her lather's to clothe the boy comforta? bly lor the cold weather, and knit him a scarf, cap and mittens. Sue never passed him without a word ot encouragement, and in his dark? ened lile the lair, sweet face stood j for a religion?something to be worshipped, Joe's especial Provi? dence lie never forgot the falling of ] the cruel lash upon the tender tig j uro bent to protect him. and lie un? derstood periectly nil at Susy's in J tercessiou had procuied for bun his ! happy, comfortable home. And his gratitude expressed it I selfiii suc'i niTc.riiigs as were within; hiis reaeli-i-bouqiiets of wild llowj ; ers. clusters of delicate ferns \m I knew she loved, baskets of wdjB j cherries orj huts, and an eager 'J^^H ' to lift niiy.obstacle from licr J^^B i And the. good-natured, country fojkscallcd poor Joe Su?i*P I admirer. But win e the winter snows were yet upon the. ground there came to j Brent Hiljj a new clergyman, one, I Cyrus l'oi'tman, who had been a ! pupil of Susy's father when he was ja youth ofnineteen, she a child of; twelve. I-laving lit ted himself for I college under Bee.- Stephen Cnyle's I instructions, he had gone to Har? vard, had istudied for the pulpit, j and, having preached in Boston, . had accepted a call to-Brent Hill, i 11 wasi|,.itenatural t hat he .should seek Susy, and the old servant at the pars ne.ve was warm in her ! praises. "!$?' was a wealthy man. having irji^ted a '('i>rtuVrifr rr'rTiiT'Iris fat her, ami he w'arseagwr to help the poor in his^Qurish. Susy, having tlie cliddrenamder her control, was aide to p:tii'|jfbiit to him many av? enues lor his charity, and thus added aim1 liessSSflf TO the associa- j lions that bound them together. So. in the. winter evenings, in thei spring walk?, he let his heart go out. i to Susy and gather her image into! its deepest recesses, while she, un , conscious of hernwu secret, felt that j there was no happiness so profound i asvOyrus brought by his mere pres. | eiicc. It was a, quiet,- uneyentfuj I courting of six long months, but it bound two hearts firmly together for life. And Joe, looking on, un? derstood vaguely that Susy was! near, that a service performed for Cyrus pleased-Susy ;,s well. And us events progressed be understood that Cyrus would one day take Sit -y to the [virsonnge as his wife, and Susy woiilil be happy then'. All this was Ii r inly rooted in poor Joe's; clouded brain, an 1 he know that trouble, to Cyrns would be sore] grief also ro Si;s\. So. with an allegiance (hat was touching. Joe transferred some of his devotion to the young clergy? man, and when he was at the farm would mutier often: ??Susy likes him; Joe must be j good to him because Susy likes him." Summer sunslfi-nc w is ripening the grain ami the berries were in ripest cluster when Susy had an en tire month of leisure jfbr the school holiday, and Cyrus won from her a pliinise fojesign her place and be Iiis wife in September. Her sim? ple nullit became her daily task, and the Colliugwoo Is lent willing hands to.prepare for the weditiiig. Jon wasimade entirely happy by the pVoiitlse ol a home at the par-| sonage, .(nil the long summer dii.vs seemed too short for the happiness \ that tilled (hem. It was nearlv two miles from the! parsonage to the Collii gwood farm, j hut there were few evening-: when' Cyrus failed to walk from liishOme to Susy's for the sweet companion? ship he loved. And his way led ! him through a si retch of lonely country, where the farms were scattered far apart; for Mr. Col liugwood had ? tough t a farm at some distaucc from the village. By what instinct Joe knew that there might be danger lurking in the road, I cannot explain, but it became his habit, solely of his own will, to follow Cyrus Portman out of his sight himself, till he. saw him safely within his bouse, and then limp back again to his own barn chamber. It may have been that the talk of the farm hands about some of the crimes perpe? trated by tramps conveyed a warn ing to his weakened mind. But, whatever the motive, he was con? stant in his unsuspected atten? dance. Kev. Cyrus Port man, secure of his place in the love of his congre? gation, thinking his Tillage home ever secure from danger of robbery, or rveii the fear of theft, was care? less of the fact that it wis known he carried about him large sums of money. He drew his income quarterly from a Boston bank, and was apt to carry large rolls of bank notes in bis pocket-bo.tie, ready for his own expenses and charities. He wore diamond studs and a linger ring and a hearty gold watch and chain. All these facts becoming known to Bob Carter, Joe's tormentor, led to the. act that proved the idiot's deepest devotion to Susy. One of the tramps seeking employment at Brent Hill, proving a congenial companion for Hub Carter in his drinking frolics and idle life, be? came his guest, and the two. un? der tiie influenceofliquor, resolved to rob the parson. ??He's bound to have a pocketful of money," Bob said, "and we're half starved! We'll make it more equal like!" So it befell that one August night, when there was no moon, Joe. faithfully trudging upon his sell appointed task of seeing Susy's lover safe in his own home, saw I two men spring upon him as he ! passed a high hedge. Taken completely by surprise. Cyrus Portman turned on his as? sailants and lotlght for his posses? sions with the courage of a truly ! brave man. But they were two to [out. and had thrown him down j when Bob Ou ter, lifting a formid? able club of wood ordered him to j give up his money and his watch. But instead of complying, hestrug gled more fiercely to free himself from the grasp of the other ruf-j hiun. ??Ton will hay* it then," growled ! Bob. lifting the club, and surely vheiw wuulU have been aa ?u<i tv all Susy's droams of liappii/oss, hart j :110t Joe, with a cry, utterly inde jscri buhle, linn* himself between [ the heavy, murderous weapui, and ?Cyrus Port man. Bf?Down ciimu the wood with a ?Pp^h upon the idiot's back and s^nead, and Cyrus Portm in, with a sudden wrench, freed himself as the tramp dodged back to avoid the blows. At, this moment the voices of a, party of village merry-makers were j hoard coming up the road, and the: would-be robbers and assassins turned ami lied. The calls of the. clergyman hur? ried the steps of the farmer lads coming home, and the well-known voices of the Colliugwood boys were soon heard in eager exclamations; In hurried words the young cer gyma-n explained the situation. '?Poor Joe," he said, looking up, as he knelt to examine the. pros tum has cost him his life, rcannot feel Ids heart heat." ??AWII carry him home," C'i irlie ! Colling wood said. "Come, boys, it is not half a mile to the farm." Willing, strong hand-; lifted the still insensible figure, and tenderly poor Joe was carried to the farm again. Susy, sitting still upon the wide porch, thinking of her lover, saw the procession enter the gate, and ran quickly down the path. Her tears fell fast as Cyrus told ! Jus sad tale, but she. opened thej door of the spare room on the lower > floor, wakened Mrs. Collingwood, j [troughI light, wafer and bandages,! while James saddled a horse and ? rode back to the village for a doc-j .tor. Hut doctors could not help poor Joe! The. blow was a death blow,! ami betbre morning there was only a cold slid' form where the poor idiot's life hail existed. Hut before ; he died, he. wa- brought back to consciousness, to know Susy was' busy bending over him, her tears dropping last upon his white,death ?itrickeu face. '.'Don't cry," he whispered, taint j ly. "It. was because you loved him. I didn't forget." he said, while a mnilo brightened his poor face.? I "Joe didn't forget when you took a j 'ashing for him. Joe remembered. And he put his head under Bob Carter's e-luu to save the parson.? | Is the parson here?" "Yes, Joe, 1 am here." ??All ahvo, and Joe did it! Joe did it for Susy." And so. with Susv's name upon : is lips poor Joe died. Detroit Free Pres?.

One species of indirect; taxation is what is styled the "Internal Revenue," ; which taxes domesticevils; like the liquor trade, and yield' the Gov? ernment; an immense sum. Hut its favorite and most profit able " ndireot" device is the ''Tar in*" Upon certain products and manufactures brought to our shores from other lands, it, lays a "duty," or tax, and that duty must be paid to the proper Government officials ((tailed ??eu>fonioflic<'rs" or "custom himseolBcers,')before the things can \ be sold in this country. On every! pound of tigs brought to this conn ? try, the G ?vernimmt, through its, ?vast oiu s-oflii-ers.'Volleets two cuts Slates and slate-pencils from abroad | must pay pay thirty cents for eve- i ry dollar of their worth.

Business in - ? 11. especially those who are thorough, prompE and methodical, are guided oy certain elementary principles. In sum.' cases l.h"Se principles are forum! i ted into simple rules, which cover even the details of conduct. A prominent New York banker attributes his success in life to the care w.ifn which he has obeyed these phun rules: Take rime for eating, sleeping and digestion. Don't worry. Be satisfied with your work alter doing it well. Never ask another to do what vou ought to attend to personally. Shun the slighiesi appearance of dishonesty, as you would shun tiie plague. Always meet your appointments on lime. Never late. If possible, not much ahead id' the moment. Doii'i taik too much. Let your actions speak lor _>oilrsclf. Be honest, even if you lose monet by it. Never let business interfere with home duties. Remember that moiiev alone can? not buy peace, mu- true friends, tun a loving family.

"Met with an accident?" said a subscriber who was two or three years in arrears, as he entered the, sanctum of a rural editor. "I see: your face is bruised and you have j got a black eye." -Well," said the editor with a sigh, as he arose and began to roll up his sleeves, "delinquent sub? scribers must be made to pay up somehow, but 1 sometimes come out second best, as you see." "Lia!" laughed the. visitor, as be i tool: out his wallet; "I just drop-[ ped in to pay my bill." And the editor chuckled softly to himself after the visitor's ilepar I tine.

Deep Ploiiffhinjr. The que>tiou is often asked: "How ocs deep ploughing make the soil moisted" I believe it is an accepted fact that wherever warm an comes m contact with a body cooler than itself the water in it condenses into drops. Oa a warm day we see it often on the outside of a pitcher ol cold water. Fogs and dews are m ide in this way, and our rain, most of it, comes up j from the gulf in those heavy cur? rents of warm air that we frequent? ly hive. When we pulverize the (.soil deep the warm air, which is full I of moisture, penetrates down and lall through it, and the ground, be? ing cooler than the air, condenses the water into drops, which an jswers in place of rain; so the deep I er and the more we pulverize it the more moisture it will collect from the air. Not only that, but as warm air is rich in food for plants it serves in place of manure, too. Thirty years ago there was a ter? rible drouth in the east. Professor M ipes, a'large market gardener had- had-his. ground umb*rdratned and Rilbsoiled, and bis crops, wiiere he could, were cultivated with a subsoil plow. A committee went to see his place after nine weeks of drouth, and it found everything as flourishing as if chore had been plenty of rain.
