Owin to the advancing years of my father, I have purchased the farm owned by him for many years past, near Hyde Fane village. Hav ing neither time nor ability to car ry it on properly, I will sell it at much less than its value. To those who are acquainted with the place no commendation is necessary. For the benefit bf those who are not, say it is one of the best farms on the Lamoille River. It has a meadow nearly or quite one mile in length, and neany as level as a noor. it was in a fair state of cultivation when purchased by my fatTier, and du ring the many years that he has owned it he has been constantly improving it, until it is to-day one or the most fertile farms on the Lamoille River. The dwelling is a good two-story house, in an ex cellent state of repair and pleas antly located, ana tne barns are lair. It would cost 350O at least to build the buildings to-day 1 ne larger part ot the larm is in Mornstown, where taxes are comparatively low. The balance lies contiguous to Hyde Park vil lage, where there is an academy, court house, two banks, printing office, steam mill, hide house, and sundry stores, railroad depot, etc, all of which are within to j4 mile ot tne iarm. ine place is now offered for ?4.ooo. It was sold a few years since for $10,000. It contains 200 or 215 acres, but if desired will reserve a part of it. Terms of payment will be made easy to any one who can either pay or secure $1000.

Matel's lotlo. There was arrentleknoek atMabel's door, and Iter aunt Alice entered the room with a package in her hand. 'Have you room for just one thing more: Kiie asKeu, smiiuifr, as sue spoke, down on the great Saratoga, which already seemed full to over flowing. "I hope so, auntie," said Mabel. Your mysterious packages are al ways so ueligntlui I could not bear to refuse even one. Don't keep me in suspense, please, fori have inherited a goodly share of Mother Eve's curi osity, you know." Hereupon the brown-eyed srirl look ed up so coaxingly, that her aunt passed her the package to untie at once. Aianei was in too mucii naste to stop long admiring the prett.y cas ing of her gift, and swiftly plunged in medias res. There, all nicely packet! for traveling, was an oblong picture, in a tiny white and gold frame. Nobody but aunt Alice would ever have thought of such a thing, and no hand but hers could have preached such a lesson with a case of water colors. In rustic letters, of crimson and gold, dropped here nnd there, these words looked out from the frame, "Do all the good you can, to all the people you can, in all the places you can, as long as you can." Amidst the letters lictle pictures peeped out, as if to say, "We aren't enigmas, are we? Can't you see how we illustrate the words?" And Mabel couldn't help seeing' how exceedingly well tliey helpnt on the Imhhoii whidi the words tuunlit-. J UHt lit tliv?i1o tit' t ho firtt cliiuse wns n tiible-Icuf, upon which rested a loaf of breud and a ilnsH ;f sparkling water. Opposite the words, "to all the people you can," were three faces, each a study. One was that of an elderly lady, so frail and lovely that for the sake of a smile from such a countenance almost any body would put himself to more than ordinary troub'e; beside her was a stupid, commonplace looking girl, about Mabel's own age; and next to her was a little black-eyed boy, with golden clustering curls. Beside the words, "in all the places you can," was a tiny marine sketch, consisting of a sandy beach, a pile of broken rocks, and, beyond, the chameleon like ocean, now blue, now green, now gray. It was a day of extreme heat in the city, and even Mabel's spacious room was oppressively warm; but the sight of that pretty sketch was like a whiff from old ocean itself, and revived the wilted spirits of the tired packer. To the left of the words com posing the last clause was a picture of a sunrise, with theslant beams dis pelling the darkness of the night just spent, while opposite this, from a bank of gorgeous clouds, the sun was just sinking behind the western hills. "Oh, how beautiful, aunt Alice! How did you ever think of such an exquisite design?" exclaimed Mabel, enthusiastically. "I have meant to do it, my dear, ever since I saw those words on the fly-leaf of Mr. Moody's Bible. They made ti deep impression on me, and it occurred to my mind, the other day, that perhaps your life would count for more, during the summer vacation, if you had this wide-reaching motto upon your dressing-table. 1 am glad if you like it." "You dear auntie! I will try toaet from the principle it teaches as long as 1 live, in Boston as well as Nan tucket," and the impulsive girl wink ed back some unbidden tears, and speedily found room in her trunk for her new treasure. The sea air did not agree with the aunt; so she was goingto Bethlehem while Mrs. Benton and Mabel were going to iNantucKer. Amid Kindly wishes lor each other, tne lamiiy divided. In the cars, just in front of Mrs. Benton and Mabel, was a fnshionablv dressed young mother, with two mis- hievous little ones and their pretty German nurse. Hie frivolous mam ma was intent upon a sensational novel of the day, and seemed dis turbed by the slightest noise from the children. A gurgling laugh from the baby was followed by a hasty, "Knt rina,can t you keep tiintcliild quietr Threi -year-old Harry had obtained possession ot a pin witii wlncti he occasionally pricked his little sister, and, as tins treatment did not prove particularly welcome, the baby set up a howl, wnicn crescenuoed into n shriek. The mother impatiently threw down her book. "Katnnn, she exclaimed sharply, "you are good for nothing to take care ot children. Can t you give me a little peace? I don't see what you do to t he baby to make her cry so!" The tearscame into thehonest blue eyes, as the poor girl began, "Ja, lie be Frau aber " "There, there! I don't care for ex planations. Attend to your work, and do better in the future!" and the mistress turned to her novel. Harry iiH getting his instrument of torture into position again, when Mabel, who had been watching the group as a mere outsider, suddenly remembered the plain-looking girl in her new picture, nnd as the words, "to all the people- you can" flashed through her mind, she beckoned the uneasy child toward herself. Her sweet smile had ijone its influence -it always does. She was a good story-teller, anil kept the little boy interested, till at Ipiiffth, he fell asleep, with his head on t he shoulder of his new lrierd. Mean time, the baby had long been sweetlv sleeping, and the tired nurse was gaining a long and evidently much needed rest. . When Harry awoke, bright and good-natured, he soon wandered over to "kiss little sister," and just then the mother closed her book, and looked up to see a pretty tableau. " Well, Katrina, you have done won ders. I never knew you to get on so well before," she said, kindly. - A happy light came into the girl's face, as she looked over at Mabel gratefully, and when the whole party rose to leave the ears, she whispered, "Danke, danke, Fraulien!" The seat was soon taken bv an anxious old lady, unaccustomed to travel, who seemed -to be in mortal terror lest she should not know when her - destination was called in the ra t her inn rt icula te ttaies ol the bra ke- man. The result was that whenever that official roared anything in the car door, she would turn about, and inqu're, anxiously, "Did he say New Bedford, my dear?" When she found that Mabel was going to the iame place, she seemed relieved; for, she said, trustingly, "You'll teil me what to do, il son William isn t there, won't you?" About noon the train stopped at New Bedford, and after tucking the old lady safely away in a hack, with the carefully written address in "Son William's" best chirograph y, placed in the drivers hands, Mrs. Benton and Mabel went on bonrd the steamboat for their delightful trip to Nantucket. lhe western cloudsgrew purpleand rosy, with borders of golden fringe, the sun sank below the horizon, the evening star blazed forth in the twi light glow, and by and by Brant Point Light flashed forth its beacon, surrounded by the electric lights of "Nantucket town." In a few minutes more, they were seated, with scores of other people, in the queer little train, which went swaying on in the darkness until it reached its destination the "l'atch work Village of 'Sconset." Mrs. Benton and Mabel found their rooms welcome after the long day's journey, and were soon asleep, but not liefore Mabel had unpacked her picture, that she might open her eyes upon its sweet, suggestive words in the morning. Mtibel soon endeared herself to all. from the frail old ladies and bright or stupid matrons and maids, down to the merry little children, who hung upon her lightest word. Neer had people loved her so before; and much was due to aunt Alice's gilt, which so sweetly reminded her, many times a day, of constant duty to every one of God's creatures. It was not among the hotel guests alone that she practiced tier motto, for, before she had been at 'Sconset a week, she had dis -overed in a. quaint, old, Kliinirled fi.-iliinjj: lint a whole fam ily of bl ight littlo imi-HwIio hiiil never bit-a to Sunday school in their short lives. SI10 fiat hered t hem a bout her, every al'teriiooa, under her beach nwnmg, and for an hour told tle'in, now of the little Hebrew child, whom the great Egyptian princess rescued from the waters of the Nile; now of good little Samuel, whose ear was so quick to catch a whisper from his Heavenly Father; now of David, the brave shepherd lad, who with God's help slew the terror of the Israelites; or, better still, of the coming ol Christ with the blazing star and angel's songs, and of the wonderful life, which enden in so great a sacrifice for all mankind. But, at last, the days allotted for the stay atSiasconset were numbered and itwas time for theBentons to go over to "T," as the island milestones abbreviate "Nantucket town." Good byes were exchanged with regret on both sides, and the little ones of the rough old fisherman came with their parting gifts a quart of huckle berries and some huge bunches of wild carrot blossoms, apparently the onlvthings-that flourish in that part of the island. The tears were stream ing down their fat brown cheeks, as the Children said, "We'll never forget you, Miss Mabel, 110 never. We're so glad you said Jesus would stay alter you re gone, and we 11 pray every night, too. Mabd looked back several times across the brown moors, as the ears rattled 011 to town, to watch the quaint little hamlet as it faded from sight, and then till she could see was the red and white side ot Sankaty Lighthouse, to which she had so many afternoon pilgrimages. However, it was not long before the spires and towers of "town came into sight, and each throb of the old engine brought them nearer and nearer. In the new hotel there were peop.e and people, but Mabel's motto knew i- 1 1 i. la- : no distinction, ami hit uiiuuuiimu kindness and thoughtful courtesy speedily gained friends a new. Wheth er she wandered through the quaint stores, with their oddly-worded signs creaking in the wind, or past thesub stantial old mansions, closely elbow ed by queer, shingled cottages, or along the narrow paved lanes, or up to the "old null,' everywhere, oppor tunity, that "golden spot of time," held lip some new duty fir kindness to be done for one who was old, or weary, fir lost. One evening she went to a Christian Endeavor meeting in the "Old North Church," and it did her heart good to see the hatuiy. attractive young men and women, boys anil girls, who Hocked from the hotels to the meet ing. As she looked about theancient buildina. with its dark beams of is land timber, axe-hewn, ar.d its lude anse-like gallery, and the remains of the sounding-board of "ye olden time" she wondered whether the church father, who had raised the weather beaten structure a century and a half no-o. could have imagined a fai.er sight than it presented at that mo ment. The promise of the Christian Church of the coining years, the sap and sinew of the future, were acre in delightful abundance. The words of one speaker, in pnrliculnr.rnmehome to her heart with peculiar force :- "It is our Christian duty tt) make ourselves as at tractive as possible in everv wav. if we would be "fishers of men", in intellect, in manners, in dress, in courtesy, in the line tuts, in everything, we must do our very best to strive after pel -led ion, f hat we may draw others toward us, nnd help win them for Christ and the church. Walking home. Mabel thought fiver ves. that was the secret, mak intr culture, advantages, talent and tact-all subservient tothe grand prin ciple of service for the Master. The davs passed rapidly, filled with unselfish acts and kindly attentions, and, eagerly in September, Mabel and aunt Alice met again in the pleasant city nome. Almost the first words that Mabel said after the greetings were over were these: "Your lovely gift has been a perfect talisman, which litis brought me more happiness than ever knew before was possible; and I never shall forget to 'do all the good lean, to all the people I can, in all the places I can, as long as ever can.' " "God grant not, my darling!" said her aunt kissing her. "You have made the little painting a blessing to your heart and life." t annie Bell in Golden Kule. A Stronj? Pension ArRument. Col. J. W II. Iteisinger, editor of the Mendville (ra.) Gazette, himself t gallant soldier from start to finish during the war, presents the pension question to hts readers in a recent article which he has headed "Who Owns the Corn?" He says: A numbe. of men once upon a time went into the woods to make a settle ment. They took up a large farm, cleared it off and prepared Lo plant it with corn. About this time the In dians appeared in the vicinity and it became dangerous to work in the field. The settlers divided their force. One-half of them took their guns, went into the woods surrounding the clearing and patrolled, while the other half planted, hoed, gathered and husked the corn. Now can there be any question as to who owned that corn? It may be said, with some show of fairness, that the men who kept off the Indians owned a larger share than those who took the safer place in the corn-field, but cer tainly they don t own any less. The above may or may not have occurred, but the following did cer tainly occur, as many living witness es can attest: ine united Mates Government was threatened with de struction bv something far worse than Indians. A million and upwards of the citizens took their guns and went out into the woods and kept aline between the Northern States and the hordes of rebels who threat ened the destruction of the Govern ment, and of the lives nnd property of its people. They pushed the line South as far as possible and finally compelled the enemies of the govern ment to disband. In the meantime the people who stayed at home planted, hoed and gathered in corn. They built rail roads and manufacturing establish ments. They put up fine houses, nnd dressed themselves in purple and hne linen, and tared sumptuously every day and Mindays. iney ne came bloated bondholders, and the Government was filled to overflowing with what thev were enabled to gather together by the fact that the soldiers were in the woods watching the Indians. Now, who owns the corn ? It has been decided by Congress time and again that the fellows who stayed in iv safe place and worked the corn-liehl own t ho eiitii e crop, and that, tt hen t he other fellows ask any of it, t he trrantiiig of it in a matter of public charity, something like a bunk at the poor-lioute or a cold bite at the kitchen door. In that war some men loaned the Government money, while others loaned their sfrvices, nnd many loaned their lives and never got them back. Wives loaned their liusbands, fathers and mothers their children, sisters their brothers and girls their sweethearts, and, though three hundred thousand of them were never brought back, there has been little attempt to make the loss up and no ''act to strengthen the public credit" by putting their claim on a gold basis. The question of pensions is simply a fiuestion of the division of the corn and, when any party arrives to that pitch of patriotism or good sense which shall prompt them to a prom ise of a fair division of the corn, the half-million survivors of the men who watched the Indians are going to vote with that party. There is another point in the programme which ought to be looked after. The various acts to strengthen tne puu lic credit and to pay the interest on certain claims in gold may or may not be right, but they comport badly with the absolute repudiation ot the soldier's pension claim if he has not presented it within a certain time. Government which pays tne noui- rs of its bonds more than agreed to pay. and absolutely pleads the stat ute of limitat ion against thesoldier's laims. may well fear to have its acts tested on the imaginary apothecary settles held bv the Goddess of Justice. Let the corn be fairly divided. It . 1 11.... il nitty be patriotic to waiter nuwers on it soldier's grave once a year, but little flour put into the mouths of his wife and children once a month would be a more political variety of latnotisni. .

Macdonald's Successor. auitr ujuf.iiAi-Hi of THE NEW 1'ItE.VI- Ell OF CANADA. Hon. John Joseph Caldwell Abbott, who has been designated as successor to Sir John Macdonald, is rather more than 70 years of age. having been born in St. Andrew's, Que., in March, Ho was educated nt homo by his father, liev. Joseph Abbott, rector of St. Andrew's, and entered McGill Colleo-e. !klnntm,.i Grnduatirg there, he stndi.! 1,....' nnd in 184G was called to the bar of Lower Canada. He soon distin guished himself as one of the leadin" authorities or the country in com mercial law. In 1839 he entered political life as representative from hisnntiveeount v 01 Argentenu in the Assem v .r tnited Uinada, and represented this consutuancy until the union inl8C,7, when he became a member of the Dominion Parliament for the mmia place. In ls(!2 he was solicitor -ireti- eral in the cabinet -of John NandhUi .Macdonald, but resigned before bin chief lost power. Just before taking omce ne nau been created O,. C. Alter leaving the cabinet Mr. Ali- bott prepared and procured the pas sage of what is now known as the insolvency act of 1804, the basis of the present Dominion bankruptcy IWS. Mr, Abbott, still a member of Parliament, was legal adviser to Sir lugh Allan, m his negotiations with Sir John Macdonald's government over the proposed Canadian Pacific railway, nnd the money received bv Sir John in 1873 was paid by Sir Hugh nt the advice of Mr. Abbott. It was Mr. Abbott'sclerk by the way, who exploded the deal between the two statesmen, ns a result of which explosion Sir John's ministry was overthrown. Mr. Abbott ns a result of his share in the proceeding, spent the seven .years 1874-80 in private life, during which time he devoted himself to his private practice. in I81I), with Mr. Hector Langevin Mr Abbott went to London to pre sent the case of the Province of Quel ec in the proceedings nrisingout of the dismissal bv Lieut. Gov. Lerellier. Just of his provincial ministry, Mr Abbott was successful, and Lord Lorne, then governor-gen eral, was directed to consult his ministers m the matter, and the lieutenant-governor was dismissed. In 1880 Mr. Abliutt re-entered Par ament, again representing Argen- teuil; nnd in 1887 Sir John Macdon ald invited him to join the cabinet, as a minister without portfolio, und he has set in the council since then. Beside this insolvency net. Mr. Abbott drafted the jury law consoli dation act for Lower Canada, and irious financial acts. Although he litis taken no very prominent part in polities of late years, he has been known as fine of Sir John's most trusted advisers, and one of the most skillul lawyers and politicians in 'iiiimlit M r Abbott. liv-t.M ill Mfint t-.iil lli.

Some one litis said that the women who teach in the public schools tire the good angels of the republic. I always feel like lifting my hat rever ently when I pass one of our teachers, or saying something encouraging or approving when I address her. This lty may well be proud of her teachers. They are self-sacrificing and devoted. Amid all the embarrassments and discouragements of her position the school teacher remains self-possessed and hopeful. With the primary class she is patient and persevering. The ungovernable little tots, full of pouts and petulance, whose mothers are glad of the rest to overtaxed nerves that attendance on the public school affords, are won over to obedience and order bv love and a steady will. During a visit to fine of the schools recently, when the question ot more room and proper ventilation was ngitated, I entered, accompanied by the principal, one of the poorly heat ed, dimly lighted annexes. The noon recess was on, and, entering the room suddenly, I beheld a, teacher nnd a scholar crouched in front of a small stove, jwring over a lesson which the dull pupil had failed to learn in time for recitation. 1 he picture was not easily forgotten, and as the teacher . , , , . . .1 ...1 looked up 10 explain tome principal, her anxious face told the story of her devotion to thechildrcn placed under her charge. At what extent of toil and weariness are these little ones taught! Those who do not visit the schools and make themselves ac quainted with what is going on there can never understand how much the community owes to the teachers who so nobly perform the task of prepar ing children for their useful lives. X. Y. Press. Winter Dairying that Paid. I'o show that winter dairying pays if l ightly conductetl is only necessa ry to publish the following: The Chnmplain Valley creamery of Fair- haven paid Mr. L. tS. l.iee of Henson o72.8i for cream furnished from December 1, l8'.)0 to March .'11, 18!)1 . The cream came from milk of sixteen . 1 1 ...... 1 cows, so mat cacu cow averaged to earn Itri.SO for the time, exclusive of the value of the skim nnlk which was returned to Mr. lee but not reckoned in the above amount. As the cream was only delivered to ti e creamery every five or six days, the labor of getting it to the creamery was merely nominal. Willi this before their eyes dairymen in this vicinity who want to do something besides exist during the winter have only themselves and not the condit ion of the country or the McKinlcy bill to blame, for not doing full as well us their Benson neighbor.

The building is twelve stories high and covers om-h.-ilf of a block. It has a tower forty feet square nnd eight stories high, which practically makes the building twen ty stories high.

Cincinnati is probably one ot the greatest distributing centres of a nuts in the country. There is one denier in that city who claims to distribute nearly 8,00(1,0011 pounds of the nuts every year to the trade. In tin1 South peanuts are called pindars" or "goobers." A native Georgian or agriculturist from Ten nessee would hardly know I lie pen nut by th.it name, if imv information were asked of him. The peanuts are sent liy t lie l.l l iners 10 ine maiivt i, in a very dirty , tinpal.it able looking condition, with the roots and dirt still clinging to them. They then have to be cleaned by putting them into revolving cylinders, which wear the roots oil the shells and give the nuts a fine polish. They are subsequently cleaned and assorted by a niai hine similar in appearance to a fanning-niill. They ate then spread upon tallies and further as sorted by working jteople who take out byh.ind the jioornnd undesirable nuts. Drake's Magazine. The origin of the word "baccarat" is greatly troublingthectyniologists. They cannot discover its root or its stems, and in the most lattly published F.nglish dictionary it is frankly put down as of unknown derivation. It is said that the car is the most useful organ for tho identification of criminals. Xo matter how much the criminal distorts his featurers, when placed liefore the camera the car remains an organ possible for identification. A cynical correspondent says that summer is the time when a great many of our best citizens go to Europe, and a great ninny of our worst, citizens that are to be come from Eiii'on. .... . - - Can n Mm Swallow a C.vniion-lnl ?
