A?i ArVUEi, 13T A GARRET. With both elbows on the table, aud running both hands nervously up and down through his hair, there sat Mr. John Claverhouse. Suddenly there was a gentle tap at hie office-door; bat Mr. John Cla verhou.se did, not hear it. How could he? He was buried in him self, trying to solve a problem, while he twitched hia hair, as if to straigh ten out the thoughts that thronged his brain. . 'H'e'tf in there. I know heia,' said a little, funny-looking' old woman. 'And I'm going to make hinxanswer this knock.' With this 8he applied her knuckles vigorously to the door, and in an instant came the response : 'Oh I oh I Whoever yon 'are, do come in ; and don't stand there, bat tering my-door down I" Aunt Prilly (for it was no other than ihe woman kuown all over town as Aunt Prilly) walked in. Mr. Claverhouse asked her to be seated and even pushed a chair toward her; but Aunt Prilly, who had the keen est pair of-little brown eyes in her head tl at ever a woman had, perceived- at once that Mr. Johu Cla verhouse. was not. in his best mood, which was very unfortunate, she thought, for she bad come on a beg ging errand ; 'and a begging errand,' slip said to herself, 'stands no chance at all when a -man isn't in his best mood.' Down she dropped into the offered chair--a little, weird old woman; so very small that people sometimes said there couldn't be a smaller woman. But she had s heart large enough for two such women,' and in all kinds of weather she was out on some errand for the poor. 'This is what I call an easy chair, Mr. John,' 6he said, as she leaned back, with a smile. But she search ed his face in vain for a responsive look. 'A beautiful day, Mr. John,' she added. 'The sun has been shin ing the whole blessed time. Hasn't gone under a cloud for a minute.' 'Sim 1 Sun been shining?' answer ed Mr. John Claverhouse, making an eflbrt to be pleasant, whilo he conld not conceal that he was very much out of humor. 'Who knew that the sun had been shining? A poor fel low like me can't see the sun in such days as these. Banks breaking! Stock companies going up so high you can't see 'em I All kinds of in vestments coming to nothing! I tell you -what it is, Aunt Prilly, if things go on much longer as they have lately, the door of the almshouse will open some day, and Mr. John Claverhouse will walk in.' Thank you, Mr. John, for letting me know that ray time for getting hold of some of that money of yours is short,' replied Aunt Prilly, shak ing her funny little head and twink ling her funny little brown eyes. 'I'm glad I happened in this after uoon, to catch it while it's flying. I want all I can get of it for my poor people in Water Street. How much would you like to give me, Mr. John ?' My good woman !' exclaimed Mr. John, in a short, twitching voice, 'don't ask me for any thing now. Never did 6ee such times. The bot tom is falling out of every thing. You don't know bow much money I've lost lately. Why, if there isu't a turn in my affairs pretty soon, I'm a ruined man. I'm sorry, Aunt Prilly; but I bavn't a cent for you to-day. Not a cent.' 'Ah! now, Mr. John,' said Auut Prilly, lowering her voice to a very tender tone, 'I want you to lay up treasure in Heaven, and you can't do it if you turn back on the Lord's poor. Mhey are his poor, Mr. John His. poor; aud I wan't you to help them along in this world, se that when the Lord of the poor comes in the clouds of Heaven He will say to yon : 'My'belove'd Johu, inasmuch as you did it unto one of the least of these my brethren, you did it unto me.' 'And it will be a happy day for yon, Mr. John, when the Lord blesses you for blessing his poor. You used to be a generous little fel low,' continued Aunt Prilly. 'I re member exactly how you looked, running round the streets, giving away everything you had to any poor body that needed it. But when you grew up you made money. Ah ! Mr. John, you made money; and money didn't always open the heart wide, Jhe Lord knows.' Mr. John Claverhouse was a money-grinder, and the world said truly when it said that he was 'a bard-fisted man.' But the tender voice of a tender woman was always a little distnrjbing to him, aud Aunt Prilly's voice was specially tender that bright sunny spring afternoon. 'What a bother these women are, sometimes,' he thought to himself. 'They do so Btir up a man.' - But, determined to shake off Aunt Prilly,' he said. 'You pet and cod dle them, and teach them to live on charity," when they ought to do more to help themselves. You know, as well as I do, that they are a misera ble crew. Water Street is the worst street in town. You can't find any worthy poor there; but you spend on them all the money you can get.' 'If you woft'l give me any money,' answered Aunt Prilly, quietly, 'will you do something else for me, Mr. John?' 'Yes, yes ; anything to. please you. Anything but money. What is it? v. 'Will you go out to-night in the moonlight (you have no wife and children to keep you at home,) and go through Water Sjreet, and up two flights of stairs, where the poor est of the poor live, and' 'Yes, yes, I will,' iuterrupted Mr. John. 'I like to air my brain at night, after working it all- day over my money troubles. And I'll tako a run up the two flights of stairs. And I'll do something more for you, Aunt Prilly,' added John Claver house, now actually emiling and trying to make himself agreeable. 'If I find a saint, oue genuine saint, such as you talk about, up those two flights of stairs, I'll pull your boll before I go to sleep and empty my wallet into your lap. Assure as my name Is John Claverhouse, I will.' 'Give me your hand on that,' ex claimed .Aunt Prilly, rising from her chair and stepping up to Mr. Johu. Mr. Claverhouse extended his hand, but with a knowing smile, as he said : 'You needn't talk to mo about your worthy poor in Water Street. Not a saint will I find there.' 'Well, good-bye for to-day, Mr. John. I'll leave it with you to de cide whether there's a saint in Water Street or uot.' Aunt Prilly was gone; and Mr. John Claverhouse was left alone, to meditate on the uncertainty of riches and to deplore the fact that they take wings and fly away. Hi3 riches had not yet flown away, but their wings seemed spread, just ready for flight, and Mr. John Claverhouse was a very anxious man. But evening found him hurrying along in the direction of Water Street, and as he turned into the street the dim lights shone out here and there into the gutters, and all the air seemed foul, not only with bad odors, but with oaths and curses. 'There's nothing that looks as if there were a saint anywhere around here,' thought Mr. Claverhouse; 'but I'll keep my word and take a run up two flights of stairs. There's no knowing, though, what I'll get into. Bad place, this! bad place! What I what I Music in here, as sure as I'm alive.' As he said this John Claverhouse was standing by the first door, at the top of the second flight of stairs, with bis hand bent ready to knock. But he did not knock, ne stopped aud held his breath to listen to the music inside. There is no name so sweet ou earth, Jso name so aweet as Jesus. 'A saint up here, I'm afraid ! A saint at the top of this shaky, wretched staircase!' said John Cla verhouse to himself. Again there came to his ears : There is no name so sweet on earth, No name so sweet as Jesus. 'I must go in! I must go in I' he said, nervously. He tapped; and, hearing a faint soft answer, 'Come,' he walked in. A faco bearing the marks of se vere suffering, and yet serene, look ed smilingly up at him from a poor old bedstead as poor and old as the rest of the scanty furniture. 'How do you do, ma'am ?' he asked rather abruptly, for he was not used to visiting the poor. 'More comfortable thau usual, sir. Thank you, kind stranger, for com ing in to see me. I am alone nearly all the time. Poverty, you know, attracts few friends. Please take a chair near the fire. A very poor fire it is for so raw and chilly au evening, bnt it is a fire' For the first time in his life John Claverhouse felt embarrassed in the presence of poverty. 'Why, Bhe'8 a lady; and I'm afraid she's a saint!' he said to himself, as he drew a chair to her bedside and sat down. 'Do tell me, ma'am, how you came here?' he paid. 'Well, sir, I suppose I must say that poverty brought me here,' re plied the woman ; 'but as I am a King's child, I dislike very much to talk about poverty.' What! What! You a King's child, and yet living in Water Street up two flights of stairs and with such miserable people around you?' Yes, sir,' answered the invalid, with a smile. 'I am a King's child. The Kiug of Heaven is my Father, and, you know, 'He givcth His angels charge concerning us;' and, with angels ever around me, I am always in pleasant company. I know I am what the world calls very poor, but, really, I can not make myself feel that I am very poor, for very day my Father, the King, says to me 'All things are yours,' and I tell Him every day that He sees just how it is with me. And oh! sir, I get such sweet answers. He says that ne will never leave nor forsake me, and He tells me to 'conaidor the lilies how they grow.' He takos all the care of me, sir, and I don't bor row any trouble. Even in this world He is going to 'do more abundantly than I cat) ask or think,' and up yonder there's a mansion waiting for me. I often look out of my window and up into the sky, on a beautiful night like this, and Bay to myself: 'It's up there! It's up there!' 'How can you knit stockings, ma'am, with those poor Augers of yours, so bent with the rheuma tism ?' asked Mr. Claverhouse, as ho noticed a little stocking on needles lying by her pillow. 'Oh ! I'm knitting a pair of stock ings for a sick child on the next floor a crying baby, whose little feet are always bare. I saved the money from two dollars that wero given me and bought a little yarn. I ought to do something for the poor, you know, when so much is done for me.' John Claverhouse moved restless ly in his chair and left suddenly, after promising to call again. Not many minutes later Auut Prilly's bell was pulled violently. 'It's John Claverhouse,' she 6aid to herself; and just then he carao in, with bis wallet in his hand. 'Take it! take it!' he said, as he opened the wallet and dropped fifty dollars into Aunt Prilly's lap. 'I found a saint,' he added, 'and if sho lives a week longer at the head of that rickety staircase my name isn't Johu Claverhouse.' One day, before the week was gone, the 'King's child,' as she lay on her bed, considering the lilies, heard footsteps on the rickety staircase not the footsteps of angels, come to take her to her 'mansion up yonder,' but the footsteps of Aunt Prilly and a strong man, sent by Mr. Claver house, to take her to a new, bright home he had prepared for her. And as they laid her ou the bed in her fresh little house, her eyes were at once attracted to the walls; and there in beautifully illuminated letters set in a frame and hung up as a picture, she read: 'I will never leave thee nor for sake thee.' On the other side of the room, in as brightly-illuminated letters and In a match frame, were the words : 'Consider the lilies.' The next day Aunt Prilly met Mr. Claverhouse, and, laying her hands on his head, as if she would bless him in the name of the Lord, sho said, in her teuderest tones: 'Ah ! John Claverhouse, you found your 'saint,' and now listen to the words of the Master : 'Iuasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these My brethren, ye have done it unto Me.' To Yean Farmer. When commencing your agricul. tural life, remember that industry, economy and integrity will insure success, and form the best capital that can be employed. Plow deep. The wealth of tho soil is not all within six inches of the surface. Cultivate thoroughly if you wish to reap abundautly. Shear your sheep at the season when you 6hcd your coat for the season. Then be careful that some smart ''traveling agent" does not pull the wool over your eyes and 6hear you. Wheu, by reason of inclement weather, you cannot cultivate the soil, it will be wisdom on your part to cultivate the mind. A valuable harvest will reward all earnest and faithful culture. Never allow yourself to be in veigled runniug into debt. When you are tempted to do so, go into your field aud plant an extra acre of some edible crop. Of course you will become the owner and raiser of stock. No farm is complete that ignores stock rais ing. Get the best, which is always the cheapest in the end. Give the scrubs a wide berth. Never purchase farm utensils be cause they are cheap. Cheap tools are au unmitigated nuisance. The best workman in the world cannot make a good job with them. It is economy to get the best, regardless of cost. "What I desire that others should not do for me, I equally desire not to do to them." "Think not of faults committed in in tho past, when one has reformed his conduct." Hits a mighty deaf nigger dat don't hear the dinner-horn. What 1 HemeoBatky ? PART II. All this will be readily admitted by any honest, conscientious Old School doctor. "But," he will per haps say, "what can we help It? We do all that can be done, and this is all that can be asked of us." This is just vshat I deny most em phatically. The Old School doctor by no means does all that can be done by medical skill. A new and infinitely better way has been dis covered and is rapidly spreading all around him a grand reform in Therapeutics and he ignores it all from prejudice, or something worse. Whenever you call a doctor to your house, you do so with the under standing that he has left no stone unturned in search for medical knowledge, and that he is doiug the very besf. that can be done for the patient. I tell you, you are very much mistaken if the doctor you have employed is of the Old School. You don't care for Allopathy, Homeopathy or anything of the kind ; all you care is to have your child cured in the quickest and best raanuer. The Allopathic doctor, however, is bound to treat you ac cording to the "regular" old routine method, if it does kill the patient, whilst he might be saved by the new treatment called Homeopathy. I mean to prove this assertiou. I can prove it to any sane man. There is not an Old School or Eclectic M. D. iu Columbus, that would not be surprised and astonished at the wonderful efficacy of a drug, when administered according to the Homeopathic principle. No M. D. could faithfully test for one month the Homeopathic method, without laying on tho shelf for eyer the whole Antediluvian method. Home opathy is so perfectly and beauti fully scientific, that it seems like the light of a new day, compared with the endless contradictions and con fusions of the Old Practice. Ite member that hundreds upon hun dreds of the Old School and Eclectic men have already become converts, aud this process of conversion is going on continually faster and fast er. Five-sixths of the whole num ber of Homeopaths practicing throughout the world are converts from the Old School. A Philadel phia Homeopathic collego has a department especially adapted for the instruction of Old School doc tors who want to become Homeo pathsa sort of medical mourner's bench, where doctors can confess (and repent of) their allopathic sins aud it is well patronized. The fundamental principle of Homeopathy may be 9tated thus: Those symptoms which a drug pro duces in large doses (if given to a person in health), it will remove in very small doses, in the sick. Thus Quinine in large doses will produce, and in very small doses will cure Intermittent fever, (of a certaiu type). Ipecacuanhn in large doses will produce, aud in very small will cure spasmodic Asthma and vomiting (of a certain type). Tartar emetic in large doses will produce, and in small dosea will cure Inflammation of the lungs (of a certain kind). Belladonna will pro duce, and in small doses will cure a certain type of Headache and Sore Throat. Aud so on with all the drug9. Probably we can acconnt for this law of cure by the following cir cumstance: Every drug has a double effect, a primary and a secondary one just the opposite of tho other, like the opposite poles of a maguet positive and negative. The positive is represented by large doses, the negative by infinitely small ones. There is action aud then reaction, the one just the opposite of the other. Thus opium produces at first stupor and Bleep, and then follows a reac tion, which is nervousness and sleep lessness of much louger duration. A "physic" produces movement of the bowels as its primary action, and then follows a reactiou consti pation. (This, by the way, accounts for the constipation in persons using "liver pills;" it is the eilect sec ondary of the pills ; and thus they keep up a continual swinging of tho pendulum medicinal diarrhea on one side, and constipation on the other, at 50 cts. per week. This may be healthy enough for the drug Bhop, but its healthfuluess for the good brother is doubtful). Tho Homeopath, then, gives his medicine for the reactionary effect. By reducing the dose more and more, the primary effect is reduced and the secondary alone remains hence the adnptedness of the medi cine to the disease. But whatever the correct explana ation of this Law of Similars may be, its truth is established bejond all doubt. It is just as much a fixed law as the law of gravitation. Old Rctinnl rlnrtnro ilptiv fliia rt rnnrc bnt what is their denial worth, as long as they havo not tested it? Whilst each and eyery one who has tested it fairly has been surprised, delighted, convinced, convicted and converted. To auy antediluvian doctor who denied it we simply say : "Test It, and then speak! But as you have not tested it, but have only beeu reasoning or thinking about It, please have the modesty to keep still, as you know absolutely noth ing in regard to it !" (To be continued.) Correction. In the last article a sen- tence (about in the middle) should read: f "Tbia is precisely the lame point in tho Old School practice" instead of same point. The Geatletaaa' Wlaau If you speak the right word at the right time; if you are careful to l leave people with a good impression ; if you do not trespass upon the rights of others; if you can always think of others as well as yourself; if you do not put yourself unduly forward; if you do not forget the courtesies which belong to your po sition, you are quite sure to accom plish much in life, which others with equal abilities fail to do. This is where the race is not to the swift nor the battle to the stroug. It is whero you make peoplo feel that you are unselfish and honorable and truthful and sincere. Thi is. what society is looking for in men, and It is astonishing how much men are able to win for self respect and suc cess and usefulness, who possess! these qualities of good breeding. It is almost the turning-point of suc cess in practical life. People will not, in the long run, have about them persons who make themselves offensive, and they yield position aud influence quickly and graceful ly to persons who make themselevs useful in a genial way. This is tho point where friends are at ouce most forgiving and most exacting. They will overlook great neglects if they can be assured of the' loving heart 'beyond the outward sight; but the moment you do rude things in a rude spirit, and show the per sonal coldness or selfishness, the friendship is severed. This is why the best friends make tho bitterest enemies. It may be set down as a rule that one can never afford to not be a gentleman. It is best to learn this rule early and practice it late. It is not well to say mean things of another, because in mopt cases you ivill have to take it all back in bitterness of heart, when he does you an unexpected favor. It is not wise to treat any or brusque ly, because you can not always judge a bird by tho feathers he has on. It is not well to look down on anybody, because the time may come wheu he will look down upon you. There is a certain selfhood in every one which should be respec ted. We have no right to infringe upon it. It is not morality, it is not mere conventional rule, it i3 not simply a social regulation ; it is something in the nature of things that you should always show a del icate regard for others. One who did nnt fail here was never known utterly to fail elsewhere. Boston Herald. Commissioners' Proceedings. March 16, 18SO.
