O the joy that comen to piinn When the mighty silent army with green ban ners overblown Drugs the winter from his throne! Conquers all his shining valleys, climbs the rampart of the hill. Steals by homely wayside hedges, fords the river broad and still, Undermines the fortress forest, overtops the castle wall, Swift invading wins the citieB, and the ham let brown and small, Till the whole wide world is captured. And the soul of man enraptured, Thrills with passion of delight Sunny morn and dewy night; And the joyous rhythmic pulsing rrnrketh time in lad and lass. To the marching, Marching, Marching, Of the grass. O the marching of the grass I Fairer things may come to pass In the golden days of summer; roses drunk with wine of June; Flitting wild birds nil atune t With the odorous breathed dawning; won drous taDestrv of flowers: Balm of incense; rest of shadow; tangled veil of jeweled showers ; Hymning choirs of happy music backward tossed from earth to skv: The full beuuty of completeness in rich chorus nttea mgti ! But what means its regal splendor To the love beats shy and tender, With which hope, the blest, doth chime, In man's pulses marking time To the haunting spell of gladness that doth come and go, alas!

Adam Holcomb was dead at last dead alter seventy years of money- getting, and the grave had closed over him. He had no children, lor he had lod a single life, induced, so it was said, though nothing was cer tainly known, by an early disap pointment which had warped his na ture and made him lead a solitary and selfish life, given up to mammon alone. Adam Holcomb was dead, and as yet no one knew what disposition he had made of his money. Three davs after the funeral the next of kin and possible heirs were collected in the office of the lawyer who was the custodian of the will and private paDers of the deceased. They were few in numbers, for the family was not a large one. There were but three, and these turee may be briefly described. First came James Holcomb, a nephew of the deceased, a vain self ish, worldly man, all his thoughts centered upon himself and his own family, who had never been known to give a penny for any charitable purpose. JNexc came Harvey llolcomD, a cousin ol the last named and auout the same nre. He was tall, thin and angular. He l'lon:eil to the legal profession, in which lie hud managed to pick up considerable money though his reputation was noun of the best. He was considerable trick3r, willing to undertake any cause, however dis reputable, for money. He was mar ried and had a tamily, lor wnom ne provided in a grudging manner. He, too, had nourished sanguine hopes of finding himself much better off af ter his uncle's death. Last a young man, presenting a strong contrast to the other two. He was of light complexion, Drown hair, clear blue eyes and an attrac tive face. He was barely twenty- i . i j j years ol age, very piainiy uresseu, and with a modest manner wnicn prepossessed one in his favor. He was the son ot old Adam noicomD s youngest sister, who had married a poor minister, and ner son, Aiireu Graves, was studying medicine, for which he had a decided predilection. But he had been cramped by narrow means, and was even now teaching in a country school, hoping to ob- HON. WM. F. CODY. " Buffalo BiU."

He had applied to each of his two relatives present for n small temporary loan to help him complete his studies, but without effect. He had been curtlv refused by both. He had come hereto-dav as a mat ter of form without the slightest px pectation of benefiting by the will of nis late relative. He had known him but slightly, and never received an encouragement upon which he could build a hope. Yet if he could but re ceive a legacy of even $300, he thought, it would help him material ly. That was the amount be had vainly sought to borrow of the mer chant and lawyer, now present with him at the reading of Adam Hol- comh's last will and testament. the merchant and lawver convers ed while waiting for Squire Brief. I nave you any idea, cousin, how much the old gentleman had accumu- lated?" asked James Holcomb "I have heard it estimated at $250.- 000!" was the reply. "That is a large Bum. I hope he has not been unjust enough to squan der any of it on charitable societies." "I hope not. Thac would be a great piece of injustice to his rela tions." "He never dropped anything to you about the disposition he intend ed to make of his property, did he?" "Not he! .He was a close man, very," said the other. "I once tried to worm something out of him, but didn't get much satisfaction." "What did he say?" "He said he thought of endowing an asylum for fools and lunatics, and that I could tell whether I was to be benefitted by his so doing." "Ho! Ho!" laughed James, shak ing his capacious sides; "he got you there, eh ? "I don't see it," said the lawyer sourly. "You don't appreciate the joke, eh? "It was a foolish piece of imperti nence. However, everybody knows what the old man was, and I let it pass. If it had been any one else I would have given them as good as they sent." But you were afraid it would spoil your chances, eh?" As to that I have no idea. There is no question that we ought to be joint heirs." "True," returned James. "That would give $125,000 a piece." That would satisfy me. How about Alfred s chances?" queried the lawyer, glancing sharply to that part of the office where the young man was quietly seated. Oh he'll get nothing," said the merchant, contemptuously. "He be longs to a beggarly stock, and a beggar, he 11 remain to the end of his days. Going to be a doctor, I hear. "Well I wish him joy in his profes sion, it ever lie sets in it, which is sotne-wluit doubtful. He wanted to borrow $:$00 of ine the other day "Aud of me. Did vou let him have it?" "Not I. I 've enough to do with my money without giving it away. Of course he'd never have repaid it." "No, I suppose not. The coolness of some people is refreshing." "Well, I take it for granted that Adam was much too shrewd to lav ish any of his money on such a fel low." Trust him for that." Tha young man was engaged in reading a volume he had taken up and did not hear this conversation. It was interrupted by the entrance of Mr. Brief. Both the merchant and the lawyer greeted him with de ference and cordiality, as a man whose words might bring them pros perity or disappointment. Alfred Graves rose in a quiet, gentlemanly manner and bowed with the courtesy which was habitual to him. "Gentlemen," the attorney said, "I hold in my hand the will of your late relative. I will at once proceed to read it." Of course his words commanded instant attention. All bent forward to listen. After the usual formula came the following item. I give and bequeath to my nephew, James Holcomb ,the sum of $5,000 to be held in trust for his children, to whose sole use the income shall an nually be applied. "To my nephew, Henry Holcomb, I likewise give the sum of $5,000, to be held in trust for his children, to whose sole use the income shall be applied. "To my only remaining nephew, Alfred Graves, I give the sum of $2,000, to be appropriated for his own use as he may see ht. "I set aside the sum of $200,000 to establish a public library in my native town, one-quarter to be ap propriated to the erection of a suit able building and the remainder to constitute a fund, of which the in come only shall be employed for the purchase of books." Here the nota ry made a pause. The merchant and lawyer sat with looks of blank disappointment and anger, which they made no attempt to con ceal. He had no right to defraud his relatives in this way," muttered James. "Itis amiserable imposition," said Henry Holcomb, "to put us off with such a niggardly sum " 1 or my part I am quite satisfied said the vounjr man. "1 have re ceived more than I expected " Oh, yes, it will be a great thing for a betrsar like vou," said James sarcastically. " I am not a beggar," returned the vounir man. nroudlv. "Gentleman." said the lawyer, "I luive not finished reading the will." " My faithful old dog Scipio, who is now somewhat infirm, I trust one of my nephews will be willing to take home and treat indulgently for the sake of the master to whom he was attached." " That's cool ! " ejaculated James, "As 'for me, I don't choose to be bothered with the dog." "But, said tne lawyer, "since your uncle has given you a legacy, are vou not willing to incur this sliirht care und expense? " 'I must absolutely refuse. Mrs Holcomb does not like dogs, nor I Moreover, my uncle has treated me too scurvily for me to inconvenience mvself much on his account " Then vou will take him ? " asked the solicitor, turning to the lawyer. "Not I," said he, shrugging his shoulders. " The dog may starve for auirht I care. " And you, sir?" turning to Alfred Graves "I will assume the charge of Scip io." said Alfred Graves. "It is a slight acknowledgement for my un cle's legacy.' "You may find liim troublesome." "That will make no difference. While he lives'he shall becomfortably , I . . curei lor. ' " What n model nephew ! " said the - i merchant sarcastically. - " Good youtiff man!" said the other relative, with a sneer. "Gentleman,", said the attorney, "I will now read the codicil." The two men looked at each other m surprise, which changed into rage und dismay as they listened. lo that one of my nephews who fchall agree to take charge of my dog, being yet unacquainted with this pro- ision oi my will, 1 bequeath the resi uue oi mj property, amounting, as near as I can estimate, to $100,000 "lou knew of this?" exclaimed the elder men, turning wrathful faces toqmrd Alfred Graves. 'ot, a -wora,- said the young man. "i am as much astonished as you can be." "No one knew of it except myself," said the attorney. "I congratulate you, Mr. Graves, on your large ac cession of wealth." "I receive it erratefully. I trust I shall make good use of it," said the young man. "I hope now to repay my parents ior iue sacrinces they nave made in my behalf.;' "If I had known," said the mer chant, with bitter regret. "I have thrown away a fortune." "And I," chimed in the lawyer, rue fully. But there was no help for it. The deed was done. The two disappoint ed men left the house, feelinc any thing but grateful to the uncle who they persuaded themselves had cruel ly wronged them. But there was a modest little home that was made glad by the news of Alfred's good fortune, und in his hands the money has brought a blessing with it, for it has made a fountain of good deeds and charita ble influences. Home Queen. Tht Monument at Gettysburg. The Monument erected by the states of Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Ithode Island, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Deleware, Pennsylvania. West Virginia, Ohio, Michigan, and Minnesota to commemorate the re pulse of Longstreet's grand assault at Gettysburg, July 3, 18(53, effected by the troops of those states, is to be dedicated June 2 next. The mon ument is an immense open book of bronze, resting upon a pedestal of stone. Its open pages bear the names of the various regiments which participated in the .repulse of the charce, which has been known ns " the pivotal movement of the war" and the "high tide of the rebellion." Two Vermont regiments the 13th and 10th of Stannard's briadd are in the list. A large frutherin; is ex pected, including tli president of the I, mted Mates and the Governors of eighteen northern states; and the exercises will be of high interest. A circular of information, issued by the Battlefield Memorial association, says that arrangements have been made for halt fare or round trip rates from Boston and New York ; and tents and straw will be supplied, free, to veterans who apply therefor, in advance, to N.

Many arti cles med a crisp touch, or something to make the other ingredients more harmonious, and it is not every cook who can use butter of the best quali ty for all cooking. It is right here that the danger lies. The housekeep er thinks she cannot afford the best grade of an article at all hazards. Lard and pork have been stand-bys so long, and there are so many places where tney seem to be necessary, that their quality is important. Still under the very best possible condi tions the grease is unhealthy, and its faults cannot be overlooked ; in fact people who are at all sensitive can not eat food containing these ingre dients. Cottolene is a preparation which comes into the market to meet just this need. The product is made of cotton seed oil an 1 beef suet, is the same consistency as lard, and looks like it except in color, which is creamy. Cottolene is delicate in preparation, is used in place of lard or butter in cooking. For frying it is unsurpass ed, as a rich brown color is easily se cured. There is not the least sugges tion of extra fat, but a crisp line fin ish, very pleasing in nsh, cakes, fried cereals, oysters, or clams. A peculiarity ot this preparation is that while food seems rich there is no fatty tast to disturb the digestion, and for this reason it has been very populur wherever used. The popu larity of Cottolene is due to tho skill ful handling and presentation of a new element in kitchen economy, by a firm of large resources, which offers only the purest and best for home consumption. This firm is determin ed to maintain a lugn standard in the interest of their customers, and the pure food laws of which they are firm adherents. Lottage Ueurtli. The incident which shaped the pro fessional career of the late Paul Dil lingham, ex-Governor of Vermont, was cutting his foot with an axe while chopping trees, when he was about 21 years old. Although dis a bleu only for a time, he had a slight limp all the rest of his life in consequence or this painful misnap. While recovering from the immediate effict8 of the blow he spent many hours in general reading in a lawyer's office, and this led to his looking in to the law, and finally adopting it ns his profession. N. l. Irrbune. A Cheap Paint la an Expensive Paint. You want to buy 20 gallons to paint your house. You find a paiut that is 25 cents per gallon less than the Chilton. You can save $5. Iiet us see. The cheap paint you will find contains one-tenth of a gallon less paint than the Chilton, has wa ter in it, and is deficient in body nnd cannot be made to cover the same amount of surface within one-fifth. Because the cheap paint is short one tenth in measure, you must buy 22 so-called gallons to get what you want, 20 actual gallons. Now your cheap paint will not cover within oue-tith the same surface. You must thereforebuy four moregallons. This makes 21 gallons of cheap paint against 20 gallons of the Chilton Paint, How about the $3 you were going to save? Chiltou Paiut Co., Bontou or New York.

Bettor Jtyls. The movement ' ft, better public roads is exciting discussion all over the United States, which for a civil ized country has probably the worst roads in the world. A distinguished resident of Minnesota in a letter to the Minneapolis Journal culls upon the people to improve their higliwavs without considering the preliminary expense. He tells them that in many counties in the Eastern states, where systems of Teleford or Macadam roads have been built, the value ot farm property has been increased ."O per cent. A poor road, he savs. costs more than a good one, since the loss to the inhabitants of the country in damaged wagons nnd wear and tear of horses far exceeds tho expenso in keeping the roads in good repair. "What are our common ronds nnj way?" he asks. In Minnesota they are simply "strips of country, about four roils wide, thrown open for the public to travel upon. In places where they would otherwise be im passable, they are worked' that Is, a body of men who know nothing of 1 . . . . . ounuing roiuis make just ns little im provement in them as possible, and. considering the result, in a most ex pensive manner. In spring our com mon roads are lakes of mud. in sum mer long stretches of dust. then. uftr the autumn rains they are mud again. This mud freezes, after hav ing been cut by narrow-tired wheels into the roughest possible surface. and then one cannot travel twenty mill's over a country road without having the wagon broken to pieces." In t hat state the roads are ma intainel by the districts through which they run, each family furnishing so much labor or an equivalent in money every year. 1 he work is done as quickly as possible, no attention be ing puid to drainage or even to the question of what is the most duru- ble material to build with. The re sult is exasperating. Only sound legislation and an aroused public spirit will afford a remedy. The Maple Sugar Industry. It mny not lie known to all our renders that we owe the tiiunufiio- t ure of maple sugar on a larg hch) to the non-importation times before the devolution, when the mistero colonists drank "Liberty tea" nnd wore homespun garments. Tho Pennsylvania Gazette of July If, 17(i5, had a letter from Boston dat ed July 4, which mentions the pro cess as a new discovery. The corres pondent got his information from a gentleman of Athol," who described the "sugar-making business at lier- nardston. "Having chosen out a large maple tree," he said, "they with an axe box it, much after tho manner ot the fir from which turpen tine is obtained; this being done, a kind of trough is prcpairejextend ing from the trunk of the tree on each side, in order to retain the' sup as it runs down. By this means up wards of 30 gallons can be obtained in n day; which.being manufactured after the manner of syrup of the sug ar cane, produces a grain of which is equal in firmness to the Jamaica; and tho treaclo is extracted irom tne pressure of the sugar is very little, if anything, inferior to our West In dia molasses. Of this sugar," the gentleman says, "upwards of 000 pounds were made by one man tho tast season, that is from February to April inclusive. A tree will bo ser viceable for this purpose 12 or 15 years, with proper usage. It Is said that one family near No. Four(Char lestown, N. II.) the last sennon mud upwards of 1000 pounds. It is as pleasant to the taste as Jany other sugar, and very proper to give iq children for tho chin cough, at this time very prevalent in Bos ton." Springfield Reporter. Bad Schools for Girls. As to bad schools schools that in stretching after tho mint and anise and cumin loso all that might have given success they are many. It seems sometimes mar, mere is no pro fession in which there is so much hum bug as in that of educatiou, and tho utter inubility of the parent to de termine what kind of a school it is in to which ho decides to put his little girl, has, to those who stand In-hind the scenes, very much of thopituui. When, Lowever, we think of one or two professions, we doubt and are Bilent. One is reminded of the nurse maid who never stood in need of a thermometer for the water for the baby's bath, because if the baby came out red, she knew it had been too hot and if it came out blue, she knew it had been too cold. Too manj-a fath er finds, when it is too late, that he has made a mistake in the school to which he trusted the training of his girl. But how could ho have known before? For a girl to have been at some schools for any length of time is a cert ificato of frivolity, lack of purpose and thoroughness, nnd, what is of more consequence, of any real rever ence for truth or her own woman hood. Anna C. Brackett in Harper's. Some farmers change their methods of work and their crops too often. It takes some time to Income thoroughly acquainted with tho growing of certain crops on each par ticular farm, and to discard it as soon as this information has Imhmi obtained is to lose the lMmflt of the past experience.
