A HAPPY THANKSGIVING.
IK. TALMACJE IN FINE NPIRI TS, And He .link s Hi Hearer Particularly Happy About Tiieir Dinner. Dr. Talmage in closing bis Thanks giving sermou spoke substantially as follows- Clear out of the oh! channels of con ventional Thnnksgiving sejinons I shall steer to day, and make you thank God for some things that you may have for gotten or never thought of at all. Among the thiugs to be grateful for this Thanksgiving day are your hereditary blessings. Have you ever thanked God for your fathers and mothers? But for the raisins we had we would have prob ably been in poor house or penitentiary! fchow me the cradle ana l will make a prophecy of everything clear on to the grave. What a glorious race of old folks those who passed off in the last genera tion. Talk about your doctors allo pathic, homeopathic, hydropathic and eclectic and I believe in all of thein was there ever a better doctor than Your old fashioned country mother? What boneset tea to sweat out a cold. What catnip to soothe restlessness. vV'hat peppermint for all siotuachic disturb ances. What "yarbs"' for a whole race of disorders '"yarbs." What warm ho; pillow for toothaching face until the country doctor in sulky drove up the lane and with one yank of the infernal tourniquet took out the hollow tooih, leaving you under the imp;essiou tint jaw and head and shoulders had gone with it! Was theie anyone like your o'd mother to poultice without hurting a runaround linger, or to make a boil stop boiling? You were not ashamed to let her see you cry, although you were so big others would have called you a crybaby. And to-day I take the re sponsibility of the medical colleges in conferring degrees, and I doctorate all t.iat generation of mothers, bestowing upon them 31. D. maternal doctor. Would that we could hare doctored them as well as they doctored us, for perhaps we might have kept them with us, and to-day at our Thanks giving table those wrinkled and vanished laces might have beamed upou us amonir the home group and we might have taken from them one more blessing be fore their final depaiture. Some say they would not bring back the departed to this poor world even if they could. Hut 1 would risk it, and if I could, I would bring back to your dinner hall to-day the two old folks, and I would put them one at each end of your table, and your wife could afford to stand and vait upon them while the celestial visi tors tarried in your dwelling. I would ralher live in Brooklyn or .New York in a house with four rooms than Jo live iu the torrid lands and own all Mexico, all Biail, all Ilindostan, all Arabia, all C iiua. In other words, I would rather ive between 30 anil !Q degrees north I itiiude and own nothing than between ll) and oO and own everythinir. Thirty TCTs of life Wo , ,w mn . I w here else. In addition to the blessings hereditary and atmospheric are the bles sings of me picturesque.

But wheiher we have church room on earth, or do not have i', theie will be room enough in our Fath er's house on hiuh, where, I pray God, we may keep Thanksgiving day eternal.

Tahnittn read for his 4 ' Let there on no strife, I pray thoe, between me and ihee, nnd between my hcrdmen aud thy h' r-lmen. Is not the whole land be fore t ce V The preacher described the tli-iculty which had arisen between the heidmii of Abraham and Lot a difficulty which Lot had the weakness to make a personal question between h mself and his unc e Abraham. Th nnriowmindedness find the selfishness f the nephew wen? set forth and trough t into broad belief by contrast with the dignity and rnigitr.niEious un selfishness f the uncle. The subje t present in the passage of Scripture rend had a singular application, said the preacher, to this broad land of our?, and especial? in the matter of religion. What names and denominations we had! hut a variety of creeds! AVIiat room for choice! Why raise difficulties about trifles ? The whole land was be fore them, with all the creeds in Chris tendom. They could have their choice. "Let there be no strife between us." "Is not the whole land before thee :" If we ultimately arrived safe at the grand central depot of the universe Heaven it would be a small iiestion whether we came by the broad or the narrow gauge. It was an important question, accord ing to the preacher, what should be the rule when wife differed from husband or when husband differed from wife in religious matters. Should the wife go with the husband, or should the hus band go with the wife ? Dr. Talmage took the ground that there was saving influence in each of the evangelical churches; and he argued, first, that if one or the other was not a Christian, it was the duty of the one who was to make every sacrifice to save the other. "Mighty God!" the preacher ex claimed raising his eves and his hands I to heaven, "is it conceivable that any one will stickle about trifles, as names, denominations, creed, litanies, forms and methods of baptism and such like, when au immortal soul is in peril ?" j The preacher argued in the second place that if either nusband or wife was too rigidly sectarian to believe that sal vation was outside the church of her or his preference it was the duty of the stronger minded and the more generous to yield to the other. ' i- like them all," said Dr. Talmage. "I could live with thorn all, worship with them all, preach to them all, be happy w ith them all. I supjiose I must have been born near the line. J know nothing ot sectarian sentimeut. I like the liturgy of Episcopacy, the warmth of the Methodists, the liberty of the Congregationalists and the strength of rresbyterianism." It was argued in the third place that if both were stubborn then they should agree to diiler. Let each go where it was most agreeable. Let thera avoid wrangling before their children and be fore their servants. And then about the children. Let them choose for them selves. The children were often quite us able to decide as their parents, and it was often found that the children brought about agieements upon church questions when all other means failed. After all, the great matter was not creed, but salvation. Rain Stared Off a War. (From the, Chicago Herald) "It is strange that the newspapers uon t print Colorado news." said a man from the Centennial State yesterday. "We came near having the biggest riot this country ever saw, yet I never saw a word about it in the papers. I'll ;cll you about it. ''Several months ago a party of Eng lishmen formed a company for the pur pose of building a canal through the dry and arid agricultural districts of urj nu . . - . 55 . , as the High .Line or Canal Company. Work on the ditch was completed last summer. "When all was ready to irrigate the j farms, which were then burning up under the blazing sun, the corporation raised t eir scale of prices for service to such an exorbitant figure that the farm ers rebelled. The drouth continued un til the wells and springs dried up. j Notwithstanding the deplorable con- di ion of the agriculturists, the company, whose ditch was bank full of water, refused to cut their rates to a point where the farmer could moisten his farm and thus save his crops. It w s now that things began to take a serious turn. The farmers threatened to cut the ditch unless the company re ceded from their position and warned the Governor of the State on a Friday that unless he took steps iu their inteiest I before the following Tuesday they would take the matte1- into their own , hands. The Eng ishinen, becomiug j alarmed at the threats of the irate farm : era, posted armed men along the batiks of the ditch and gave them instructions to shoot down the first man who should attempt to wreck the works. "Saturday and Sunday passed with out any word from the Governor. On Monday the farmers armed themselves with rifles and shotguns, preparatory to storming the ditch all along the linn the following motning. When the sun went down that evening the feeling was general that a battle would be fought withiu twenty-four hours. "During the night a fierce rainstorm burst over the disturbed district, resus citating the drooping vegetation and filling the streams to overflowing. The u..it: i : i 3 i . s"s "c '"""' "T" re'""Y " ' intervention of the elements, the farmers dropped their guns and set about their work You see, this is a rather in to! esting incident of Western life, from the fact that a rainstorm saved many human lives." How a Farmer Puzzled a P g. A farmer was annoyed by one of his neighbor's pigs plowing his rye field and could not find where the pig got in; having examined every nook and corner of the field, and the intruder, being careful never to betray the place where he entered by going out there, the tiller of the soil concluded to watch the live bacon aud if possible discover its way of entering the field. He soon h l the satisfaction of seeing the rooter enter the end of a crooked hollow lug which was a part of the fence, oue end being in his field and the other end in that ot his neighbor's. Afterdriviug the roo er out he changed the position of the loj so that both ends weie in his neighbor s field and watched the result; very soon the pig came came along and went through the log, but upon coming out he lound only pasture grass, and after some little delay he seemed to arrive at the conclu-ion that he had not gone thiough. the log at all, so he wcut through again coming out into the pas ture field again, which seemed to mys tify him more than ever. After a search for the so! t ground he seemed to con clude that, owing to soin mistake of his own, he had not really gone through the log, so in he went again and out into the pasture field, but this time he stood as still as a statue, very soon the bristles began o stand erect ou his back, and with a couple of grunts and snills, he ran oil for the house of his owner. Since that time he has not ap proached that part of the pasture field. "P.g Iron .Miller" Dead. William Miller, a quaint character, known the length of the lakes for his j exploits as a diver, died iu Cleveland, I Ohio. He made a livelihood by bring- ing up from the bottom of the river pig i iron that had faiien from vessels. '1 his i won him the title of "Pig Iron .Miller."' ! lie had rescued a hundred persona fiom drowning after swimming out in a terri ble sea in which a boat would have been swamped. The Board of Trade gave him an expensive gold medal for his bravery. i-.e made frequent heroiy e.Toi ts under Frances Murphy and others to forswear liquor aud finally won at the expense of his life. In one of his festi vals his medal, the pride of his life, was stolen, and he wandered disconsolate from city to city until, with fine detec tive ability, he captured the thief and recovered the trophy. He scorned to wear a diver's uniform and on one occa sion accep'ed a wager from a submarine diver to dive to a greater depth nnd re main longer under water than it was thought possible to do without armor. He won the wager, but the pressure of the water broke the drum of one ca and he ne7er fully recovered from the shock. Caught On. A Geoigia paper pub- j lishes as truth the story oi a vfarion ! county farmer who became satisfied ! that he had a tapeworm. So he care- fully baited a little fishhook, tied a ! short line to it, swallowed the hook, and tied the line to his buttonhole. Then he waited for a bite. By and by he thought he had one and yanked the line; the hook cuught in his throat and had to be yanked out. He didn't catch the worm. HONEST JOHN'S REWARD. The Story of a Man who .Hay be Found U Every Conimnnllr. "Do you want to see au honest man?" The speaker was Mr. Gouge, a promi nent merchant at Jugwump Junction. "If you do, there he comes," con tinued Mr. Gouge; "that is John Day, Honest John we call him." Iu another moment I was shaking hands with Honest John. He was a tall spare man, slightly broken under his burden of three score years, but his cheerful face and clear blue eyes con trasted youthfully with his iron gray hair. He impressed me favorably. I could see that he was a sensible, clever man, and his voice had a hearty, honest ring that accorded well with his frank, honest eyes. One could not remain long at Jug wump Junction without knowing every body for miles around. As I enhrged my circle of acquaintance, one thing struck me very pleasantly. It was the high opinion entertained of Honest John Day by all classes, rich and poor, black and white. "Yes," said 3Ir. Gouge, when I men tioned the subject to him, ' people size up a man just about right. Aint that so, Cheatem?" "Xo doubt of it," replied 3Ir. Cheatem promptly. "John Day's word is just as good as his bond, and every body knows it As Mr. Cheatem was a money-lender it occurred to me that this tribute to the man meant a good deal. Honest men do not always prosper, and poor John Day in his old age seemed to have an extraordinary run of bad luck. The first year I knew him a tornado destroyed his growing crojs and earned his house into the next county. Jugwump Junction wanted to condole with him, but to the surprise of everybody Honest John was jubilant. The old fellow could not be grateful euoutrh to the Lord for carrying him and his wife through the storm without a scratch. With some difficulty he managed to build a small, cheap house, and the next season he worked with tremendous industry on his little farm in the hope of repairing his losses. Things turned out badly that year, and when Sonest John's wife became hope lessly bedridden I felt there was noth ing ahead but ruin for the little family. "John Day has been sued!" Somebody let this remark fall in front of the Court House one morning, and it ran through the village like wild lire. "It is a shame," said Mr. Gouge; "John Day is an honest man if there is one in the world. Who has sued him?" ".Mr. Cheatem," was the ready answer. Mr. Gouge suddenly became thought ful. He betook himself to his store aud for the next hour or two he was quite busy going over his ledger. Then he went to see Mr. Cheatem and had a short talk with him. At midday Mr. Gouge filed his suit against Honest Johu. In the afternoon two other merchants and a blacksmith entered their suits. "It -will clean him out, lock, stock, and barrel," sa d Lawyer Brassey. The suits aggregate about ft, 000, and his property will not bring more than that, although it is worth double." "Won't he homestead?' asked a young merchant who had just resumed business after effecting an honorable compromise with his creditors at fifteen cents on the dollar. " "Oh, no," said Mr. Gough in a trem ulous voice. "He's too honest a man for that. Honest John would not allow a creditor to lose a dollar." "Of course he wouldn't," chimed in Mr. Cheatem nervously, 44 John's word is as good as his bond " They all agreed that under no cir cumstances would the old man do any thing to delay or defraud his creditors. "With your high opinion of his in tegrity, I wonder that you sued," I said to Mr. Gouge "Hated to do it," was the reply, but Cheatem has sued, and we all had to be gin looking out for our money. Had to do it, you know." All the talk I heard was of a similar tenor. Until the very last there was a vague uneasiness in the community. Every body expressed the hope that Honest John would file no alii avits, and make no application for a homestead. Jugwump junction had always felt proud of him as an honest man, aud the jtcople wanted to see him justify their good opinion. There was no cause for their alarm. Honest John made no de fence to the suits, and when sale day came he moved about among the people, treating them with his usual courtesy. He was thinner, paler, grayer than ever, nnd his voice seemed to have tears in it, but his clear, honest eyes shunned no man's ga.e. Lawyer Brassey was right. The little farm, household furniture, mulo, wagon, plows, etc., altogether brought only a thousand dollars. Honest John was once more square with all the world, aud without a dollar in his pocket ! The next day Honest John came into town with a bright face. He had found that he coujd remain on his old place at a fair rent, and he wanted to see what arrangements he could make with the merchants about letting him have sup plies for the coming season. "I'm mighty sorry," said Mr. Gouge, "but I've decided to curtail my business. I've been branching out too much. 1 must try to get as near as possible to a cash basis." All the merchants talked in the same way. So about dark John Day with a sad face walked slowly homeward to his sick wife. A few days later Honest John, with his poor shattered wreck of a wife, passed through Jugwump Junction on his way to the mountains, where he heard of a chance to begin life anew among a rough simple people, who had known him in his youth, when he had married one of their blooming lassies, and carried her to what he thought was the garden spot of the State. It did my heart good to see my fellow towns men crowd around the wagon and shake the withered hands of the old couple. "God bless you," said Mr. Cheatem: "I always did say, and say it now, that your word's just as good as your bond " "We all hate to give you" up, Honest John," said Mr. Gouge. Even Lawyer Brassey seemed over come. Honest John was quite affected by these expressions of good will, and when the wagon moved orT, I could see him wiping his eyes. After all virtue is its own reward. 1 have never heard of John since he left Jugwump Junction, but if the old man is living I am sure that he is still called Honest John. No reverses of fortune can ever make hira anything else. Atlanta CvnHilMiun. Wrong Side Up. rARTY OK AMERICANS PARTAKE OK CIII.VESIS DINNER IN 1EW YORK.

A month ago a home letter brought to nie the news of the death of the wife of Ezra D. Winslow, a noted Boston forger. Mrs. Winslow was a woman of the sort that always brings about her hoaU of friends. She made them con tinually, and she kept them. Still, I do not believe that there was oue who knew that she was dead that would have wished it otherwise. 3Irs. Wins low, formerly Miss Ayres, was married to Mr. Winslow while he was nineteen and she was seventeen, the result of a pure and simple love match. This was shortly before the beginniug of the late war, through which Mr. Winslow served with honor and respect as an ac tive chaplain. Very soon after their marriage a boy was born, aud as years went on the sweet mother and hand some child and the honored father be came known and loved everywhere. Later on Mr. Winslow became interested in many things; journalism, real estate, his ministry, politics and speculation of a number of kinds. He was a man without the slightest ostentation, genial, generous, practical, affable in fact, as correct and as interesting a man as ever made his way in the world. He moved ! to Auburndale, one of the villages of Newton, near Boston, and fairly made j j money honestly aud rapidly, and spent it like a shrewd business man. No one could have been more respected. His word and his smile were valued as only those of one man in a village of that sort can be in a century. The best men were his friends aud intimates. One night about Christmas tide ten years ago his house was burned to the ground. A few nights later he carried his weeping, fainting wife into a wait ing train, the pale, questioning hid of fifteen years following with a sister of Mrs. W inslow. In a day's time the news epread that Mr. Winslow was on his way to Amsterdam, a self-exiled criminal. For days and days, until it was proved I eyond a doubt, business men absolutely refused to believe the statements printed and reprinted iu the papers. On arriving at Amsterdam the fugi tives were detained, and again in Lon don Mrs. Winslow was robbed of money that was probably her own, but was cer tainly never returned to those whom her husband had wronged. Then Mr. Winslow went to Brazil and his wife came back to her home, bringi g her boy to be educated. She parted from her husband, whom she had learned to know as a criminal, but loved as dearly as ever, only temporarily, she thought. She expected from him a speedy sum mons to return, and the means to do so. This summons failed to come. Instead, there came one day from the man whose wife she was, and whom she loved so well, a copy of a news paper he had established in Bio. Iler first thought was pride and hope com mingled. He was clever; he would re trieve his fortunes; he would wipe out the disgraceful debt! Then there met her eye a faint pencil mark. In encircled a note of her death at her home in Newton. Cau you imagine the intensity of that blow? No one can. Nor of the oue that waited four short weeks to follow. Another page came. It contained the notice of his marriage to another wo man. Hideous as this woman's sufferings must have been, she gave no sign. For a long time even her boy, her own sis ters did not know of this. All they saw or knew was that she no longer planned to go to her husband; that the sad face grew thinner; that the blue eyes grew larger but faded ; that there was neither a word of hope nor a word of reproach on her lips; that she lived only to see her boy grow up au honest, loving man, and do good and be good to all. For nine years this woman was con demned to live this horrible existence. A sadder, sweeter, purer, better woman than in all her pure life she had been beforeim!i2ine jjer sufferings if you can, and be glad with those that loved her that a month ago she died. Fannie B. Merrill, in 2w York Graphic. The Life Saring Crew. It was 2 o'clock of a summer's morn ing when all the guests of the hotels at Beach Haven heard the boom of a guu aboard a ship in distress, and ten min utes later 200 people were on the beach. The wind blew a howling gale and a great bank of impenetrable darkness hid everything seaward beyond the first line of breakers. Three times the solemn boom of the signal gun floated to our ears ou the piping gale, and then came a silence which even the mai rush of the breakers did not fcem to break. Every ear was bent seaward every lis tener felt that the doom of the craft which had made that hostile shore in that storm was sealed. There was noth ing for a thousand miles to break the sweep of the gale and the rush of the sea. "Hark !" A hundred voices shouted the word together. It was the rub of oars in their locks, and next moment the life-saving boat, whose station was a mile below us, hung far above our heads on a great sea sank out of si'.'ht in a way to make every heart chill heaved into view again, and then came rushing at the sloping beach of sand with the froth so deep around her, and the spume and spray flying over her in such a cloud that we only saw the dark bodies above her gunwales. She rushed to our foet on a great roller, half a dozen men sprang otit and pulled her out of reach of the next, and then eight wet and limp and frightened men were helped out aud given restoratives. "Wrhat was it ?" asked some one of the life-guard "captain. "An Austrian bark on the bar." "And how many were lost ?'' 44 Seven." In a quarter of an hour all were gone, and it would have seemed a dream had not the waves for three miles up and down been flinging spars and planks and beams and boards on the beach as indis putable evidence of a sea tragedy. Ev ery man of the life-saving crew had taken his life in his hand as he met that bhrieking gale and those mad waves, but not a man boasted there was not even exultation in their demcanot. 'then xt wreck might take every life. That was a chance to be run. Rescuers and res cued melted out of our sight like so many specters, and we saw them no more, Detroit Free Press. What Imariii ition Did. Not a long time ago a young lady having entered a dry goods store not a thousand miles from New York po'itely requested to be shown a certain article. An impatient clerk in a churlish manner obeyed her wishes. "What's the price?'' she asked. "Three dollars," was the unceremonious reply. "Three dollars!" exclaimed the lady in surprise; "how very high your prices nre !" "They re cheap enough if you'll imagine so !" was the surly reply. "Well, you may wrap it up lor me and I will take it," said the lady. The. article was accordingly pneked, nnd the lady, taking it iu her hands, was leaving the store; but the alarmed clerk, running after her, ex claimed: "Madame, you have not paid me !'' " Oh, yes I have if you'll only i'liagine so," she archly replied The nrticle was paid for, but not, however, before the proprietor took in the "sit uation " Ury Woods Chronicle. The many silly questions that are asked at railroad ticket offices would try the patience of a saint.

From the St. Paul Globe.) Mr. Youngmau, of St. Anthony Hill, married a vera pretty and sweet iittle lady a few days ago, and be furnished a house to establish her in as soon as the nuptuals were completed. He was con gratulating himself on having bought everything that would be needed in the proper runninf of a well-organized household, andwas not a little surprised on the second morning after his wed ding by his wife handing him a card on which was written a list of articles which she requested him to bring home when he came from work. The list ran as follows: , Stove polish. Hard soap. Oatmeal. Curtain fixtures. Picture hooks and cord. Coal sieve. Iiolling pin. Dust pan. Broom. Stove brush Paper eight-ounce tacks. Mr. Younarman reads over the list and tries to remember that he bought all of these things when he furnished the house, bu the can't. "Hadn't you better go down with me and order them yourself, darling ' ' he gaV9. Xo, no, dear," she replies. 'You can get them well enough.'' "But I might not get just what you want, " he suggests. "Oh, you goose," she says, smilingly, throwing her arms round his neck and dropping a kiss on his lips, "you know I'd be satisfied with anything you buy me " "I wouldn't'be single again for any thing." mused Mr. Youngmau, as ho tripped lightly down stairs. That noon Mr. Youngman brought home the desired articles and laid them' on the tabie. Mrs. Youngman looked over the articles and said: "Oh, AVill, what did you net this kind of stove polish for ? It isn't hah so good as the other, and this soap, why, my mother never would have that brand of soap in the house. How much'd you pay for this oatmeal "Twenty-five cents." "Twenty-five cents! Why, you can get splendid oatmeal at Schwab's for fif teen cents a package. "Those curtain fixtures are an inch too wide for the windows. 1 wonder you didn't know that. 4 'Oh, you got green picture cord, didn't you ? Well, I won't use it. I always want red picture cord. "That coal sieve is too coarse. It'll let half the good coal go thiough it. AVhy didn't you think of that i "That rolling pin is altogether too heavy. I wanted a light one. "I was in hopes that you'd get a bronze dust pan, instead of this yellow one. "That broom is too heavy.

The newspapers relate two different stories ttat are equally remarkable as illustrations of the strange things that are daily occurring in the undercurrent of human life, aud the romance that often attaches to a criminal career. By the filing of the will of Juan Peiro Terry, a wealthy Cuban planter who re cently died iu Paris, his widow is made a millionaire, nnd an unborn child be comes a legatee to the extent of $1,000,000. The peculiar part of this affair is that Mrs. Terry began her career as a barmaid in Liverpool, was afterward married to Bui lard, a famous bank burglar, whom she left when she discovered that he had a wife living, and finally contracted an alliance with Terry, the son of the wealthiest planter in Cuba. By his death she and her children are lelt with an immense for tunes The other case is that of Hope, another bank burglar, and probably the most daring aud skillful craftsman in his line living. So successful have his burglaries been that he is now worth more than half a million, but his money is of little service. Hope has just con cluded a term of eight years in a Cali fornia prison, aud upon his release he was taken in charge by an officer, who will bring him to New York city to be tried for robbing the Manhattan Sav ings Institution in 1873. There is little doubt of his conviction, since most of his coadjutors are at present serving long terms for the same crime. It is probable, therefore, tha, in spite of his wealth Iloue. who is now fifty six i years ot age, win be lorced to spend twenty years more in eonhncnient. Ihe way of even the successful transgressor is sometimes hard. Calm and Candid. When General Sherman entered Qolds boro. X. C, after his march to the sea, on his way to join Grant before Rich mond, there dwelt iu that town a cer tain Col. N., who was one of the most rabid Secessionists that could be found His house was situated in the north end of the city and nt the end of a street, so that any one coming into the town from the south would see his residence as soon as he would enter the south end of this same street. When General Sher man and staff came into" the town they came up this street and stopped just in front of Colonel X's residence ; the Col onel, who was out on his porch, greeted them, and an officer, saluting him, asked what his sentiments were in re gard to the war. "I am a strong Uuion man," answered the Colonel, with a dry smile. "Ah, indeed," said the officer, rather sarcastically; "and how long have you been a Union man :" "I have. been a Union man," said the Colonel, slowly, and as if considering his words, ''ever since I saw you and your stall' come . into the end of that street, about fifteen minutes ngo." The candor in tiie Colonel's reply pleased General Sherman, and he or dered a guard placed around Colonel X's property, and during the entire stay of tiie army in Goldsboro, not a thing was molested in or around the premises, all Ik nigh a great many of the fine pri vnte as weil as public buildings were burned and pillaged. M. Quad. Was h Ciieoit. A Geoigia news paper illustrates the average Southern in gro's poor business ability by telling of one who asked the price of coats i . a store. The store keeper offered him various garments cheap for cash, but the negro would not buy, and I'm ill v the merchant picked out a coat that cost him fl.li.i nnd offered it to the negro for $10. ngru ing to take $2 in cah and trust him for the balance.

If I were a boy rgain, endowed with the same wild passion for plucking watermelons in the dark of the moon, writes Bill Nye in the Boston Glohe, I would no doubt fall a victim to that overmastering passion as I did before, but, lookiug at it, as I do now, I would be wiser. Boys cannot, however, have the mature judgment of manhood with out the experience and the rheumatism that go with it. So it is better that in our childhood we may be able to eat a raw turnip with safety, and know some thing later on in life. I notice a great change in myself while comparing my present condition with that of joyous boyhood. Then I had no sense, but I had a good digestion. Now I haven't even the digestion. The hurrying years have cavorted over my sunny head until .they have worn it smooth, but they have left a good deal yet for me to learn. I am still engaged in learning during the day and putting arnica on my experience at night. Childhood is said to be the most glad some peiiod in our lives, and in some respects this statement may be regarded as reliable, but it is nut all joy. I have had just as much fun in late years as I did in boyhood, though the people with whom I have been thrown in contact claim that their experience has been dif ferent. I hope they do not mean any thing personal by that. I do sometimes wish that I could be a boy again, but I smother that wish on account of my parents. What they need most is rest and change of scene. They still enjoy children, but they would like a chance to select the children with w hom they associate. My parents were blest with five bright eyed and beautiful littlo boys, three of whom grew up, aud by that means be came adults I am in that condition myself. I was the eldest of the family with the exception of my parents. I am stiil that way. My early life was rather tempestuous in places, occasion ally flecked with sunshine, but more frequently with retribution. I was not a very good roadster when young, and so retribution was most always just in the act of overtaking me. While out raged justice was getting in its work on me, the other boys escaped through a small aperture iu the fence. A Rich Illinois Woman. From the Chicago Mail. Pxcept that CrcfBus ia corsets, the Chilian donna we read about, Mrs. Meredith, of Cambridge City, is th; cattle queen of the world. She is now in tins' city and I lifted my hat to her yesterday. Mrs. M. is the widow of Gen. Meredith. Gen. Meredith, when he was alive, was one of the pioneer fine cattle breeders in this country. He be came rich as the craze for high-priced, imported short horns grew, until in the '00s and the early '70s he was worth probably $.500, 00. He had the Airdries, and paid out Sfl 0,000 as readily for a bull that happened to be after his own heart as more conservative men paid out mot ey for good lands with houses on them But the General went broke when th- , R,lhs:(lp,i ,,: f;!w, Bft(ip him, but the widow, with all her style aud grace, had a better head for b'isi ness -than either the husband or son. She took the herds that were left an i managed them, ami, where both men had failed, she succeeded. Gen. Meredith used to own $10,000 bullu and ran to $5,000 calves. His handsome widow has got over that folly, j S ;e breeds cattle for money, not for ; ploiy. The General was quixotic from j the s! and point of cattle men. The w idow is practical. The modern idea in cattle raising is to raise a herd and ti breed it up until it has certain distinct ive characteristics of fine beef, for in stance, or of line, rich milk, or of great beauty. Mrs. Meredith would be happy if she cou'd sell twenty calves a year for i'2'tO apiece. The General was never satisfied unless he could have a sale once in two years, anil could get $5,000 or SMO.Olio" for his cows and bulls. Cattle men now are gratified if they can take their customers out into their fields and sh w them a herd of cattle each orit: of which is so much alike every other one that there is no distinguishing them. This is the latter day theory; the Gen eral's was the old-fashioned. Men and women are getting rich now breeding fine inimals. All the old cattle lords who held the General's views went broke in 187-t. Beautiful and Wealthy. The Philadelphia Times says: The most beautiful fcoman in New York who is she, what is she and what is she like'? Laving aside the often disputed question as to whether beauty is purely or in part subjective or objective, this title is said to belong now to the beau tiful widow of the late Louis C. Ham mersly, who has just reappeared in New York society alter the conventional period of mourning. Tiie records show her to be a daughter of Commodore Price, of the I'n'ted Slates Navy, and locat-j her birth in Troy, N. Y., f little over twenty-six years ao. She is tall, ered aud slender, and has a face of un usual sweetness. Her costumes are wonders of nititic construction and she has not this season worn one of them twice. Her jewels, too, have been changed every night. When s ill quite young she married the eccentric Mr. Ilanimersly. who was as rich as Crorsus and as erratic as Edgar A. Poe. If ever a woman was wildly loved it is said thiit Mrs. Haiuiuersiy was that woman. Both before and alter his marriage the hus band of her choice lavished attentions upon her, said and believed her the qu'jenliest of queenly women and proved his sincerity by bequeathing" his entire fortune to her. The tattlers tell that she was won by her husband's money and not by his intrinsic worth, but her quiet devotion to him during her five years of marries life is nn argument they never touch. Not many women, even in moneyed New York, can boast of hav ing OHO.OOO in her own right, and yet Mrs. Hnimncrsiy has more than that in addition to her physical charms.

IscS. .Tired Eyei. People speak about their yes being tirad. meaning that the retina, or seeing portion of the eye, is fatigued, but such is not the case, as the retina hardly ever gets tired. Ihe fatigue is in the inner and outer muscles attached to the eye ball and the muscle of accommodation, which surrounds the lens of the eye. "When a near object is to be looked "at this muscle relaxes and allows the lens to thicken, increasing its refracting power. The inner and outer muscles are used in covering the eye on the ob ject to be looked at, the inner one being especially used when a near object is looked at. It is in the three muscles mentioned that the fat ague is felt, and relief is secured temporarily by closing the eyes or gazing at far-distant objects. 'Ihe usual indication of strain is a red ness of the rim of the eyelid, betoken ing a congested state of the inner sur face, accompanied with some pain. Sometimes this weariness indicates the need of glasses rightly adapted to the person, aud in other cases the true rem edy is to massage the eye and its sur roundings as far as may be with the hand wet in cold water.

Something About Catarrh. A great many people are afflicted with Ca tarrh who do not know what ails them ; and a great many more continue sufferers who might be cured. Thickeningof the membrane which lines the nasal passages, bus making breathing diffi cult ; a discharge from the nostrils, more or less copious, watery or thick, according to the stage of the disease ; a sense of fullness in the head; a constant inclinatien to spit; and, in advanced cases, a dropping of intensely dis gusting matter intothe throat, are a fewof the prominent symptoms of Catarrh. Deaf ness, inflamed eyes,neuralglc pal, sore throat and a loss of sense of smell, are very often caused by Catarrh. All these troubles are cured by Piso's Reme dy for Catarrh, Relief Is had immediately after beginning its use, but it is important that it be continued without intermission until the catarrhal virui is expelled from the system and healthy secretions replace the diseased action of the mucous membrane. Manifestly it is unreasonable to expect a cure in a short time of a disease that has been progressing for months or, years. This question of time is provided for In the putting up of Piso's Remedy for Catarrh. It is go concentrated that a very small dose 1? directed. The quantity in one packago is suf ficient for a long tr at meat, consequently tlu expense is a mere trifle, and there is no excuse for neglect nor reas n for it but forgetfulness. A cold in the head is relieved by an applica cation of Piso's Remedy for Catarrh. The comfort to he got from it in this way is worth many times the cost. The followttisr letters are specimens of those received every day, testifying to the wdrth of Piso's Remedy for Catarrh : Allkohent, Pa., Sept, 28, mi.
