BLOOMSBURG, PA., FRIDAY, AUGUST 6,
Slio sweetly sleeps
Svilhtu Ihocold damp earth,
From whence nil living had their birth,
To where all living shall return,
That vast lnajesllo urn,
Suo lies at rest.
Sue sweetly sleeps
Much shall wo miss her smile;
Tho euro her kindness could beguile,
Will vanish nt her bid no more;
But why should wedoplorc?
She lies at rest,
Sho sweetly sleeps
Tho voice ol song Is still;
Tho tones that wont to mako us thrill
Willi ccslacy, live In our heart,
Aud theuco will never purt.
Though she is gone
She sweetly Bleeps
And wo shall hear her Hur
Her voice In earthly chant uo more;
But In the sacred choir her snug
Shcevcr shall prolong,
Sho wakes above !
Together Ihey stood, upon tlio vino wreathed
And tho snushlno played on her bright, brown
Those cluslerlng curls, as they fell o'er her brow,
Just stirred with tho brcnlh of tho morning air.
And tho llpa wero parted with a tender smile,
And the eyes looked a lovo-llght.deep and truo
Into eyes that mirrored her own Imago thcro.
In depths that reflected the heavens, clear blue.
And ho looked fondly down on the bright young
UpllRed in Us trusting faith aud love,
Whllosoftly ho innrmcred the same old-tlmo
That should stand ns firm as Ihu stars above.
Ho said as ho kissed the bright drops from the
That wept, at parting, though tears were vain,
'Dearest love, but for thee, I seek a far clime,
And wilt thou bo truo till we meet again?''
"Till wo meet ugalnl" 'twas when long yours hail
But his bride wore tresses of shining gold
Which shaded a brow, full as haughty, as fair,
And no love-light lay in tho eyes so cold.
They met, but If he was llcklo she was proud,
Aud the pain or perflay none might know;
For the vlncwrcalhed porch told no treacherous
Of Summer morning In the long ngo.
JOHN BOYDEN'S INVESTMENT.
John Boytlcu was n young farmer,
who lived In a country village, and was
an honest liouorablo fellow, who bo
llovcd In dolngjust ns ho proinised.uiul
only promising what he could perform.
In this respect, at least, ho wns tho very
soul of honor. Ho would not havu
wronged a man out of u cent, to uso his
own phraso, no inore'u hu'd chop Ills
right hand olf. And ovcrybody know
ho felt whnt he said. They respected
him for his uprightness, and prophesied
that John would buy himself a nico farm
somo day, and mako ouo of their besP
men. For, notwithstanding tho rich
ness of his heart, John was poor in
worldly goods. Ho had commenced in
life by working upon neighboring farms
by tho day or week, and in a short time
had saved enough to furnish a humblo
Ilttlo houso which ho had bought upon
But an evil tiny came upon John. Ho
was engaged with a neighbor digging a
drain on his premises, when a sudden
dash of rain drovo them to tho houso.
"Don't you want to look atthopapor,
John?" tho man asked, passing lilm
tho city sheet, which had arrived tho
Ho took tho paper, rather to pass tho
timo than for any other purpose, as ho
was not given to reading extensively.
Whllo ho sat listlessly running his eyes
down tho columns, ho camo to that part
devoted to advertisements. Ho would
lutvo turned tho sheet, but at that mo
ment his gazo wns arrested by a para
'$2.1 DOLLARS PER DAY TO AGENTS I"
Ho read tho strange announcement,
then re-rend it,belngvery careful in re
gard to tho figures. Then ho muttered
to himself, "Well, now if that don't
beat nil I ever heurd of 'twenty-flvo
dollars'", day 1' I wish I could get Into
such a business, I'd bo content with ten
dollars yes, or flvo either."
Ho road tho paragraph attentively.
Thcro was surely un opportunity for
hlni. An agent, ono or moro,wa3 wan
ted In every town throughout tho "Uni
ted States. What If ho should bo tho
fortunato ono to sccuro this golden
chance! Ho really trembled lest some
body else should see tho paper and get
tho coveted agency.
"Twenty-fivo dollarsaday,"ho refleC'
ted; "a hundred nud fifty dollars a
week ; six hundred dollars a month ;
seven thousand eight hundred n year I"
at that rato ho would becomon rich man
In no time! Llleially his credulity was
runnlngaway with him. Tho enormous
figures had turned his brain At tho first
Eight, If ho could but get that situation
ho would nsk nobody to trust him. Nei
ther would ho work for such paltry wa
ges any longer. Already ho began to
consider what farm ho should purchase,
Nono Within tho circle of his acquaint
ance seemed fully to meet his wishes
But thcro would bo timo enough to con
ulder that, when ho should have tho
cuMi In hand.
Tho rain had ceased by this time, and
they wero ready to return to their work
or1 rather tlio employer was ready,
John carefully tore tho address of tho
agency party from tho paper, placed it
In his pocket, and worked through tho
loug hours of thu afternoon.
Upon reaching homo his first Ihouzht
was to consult his wife upon tho subject
but hu thought It would bo nu ugrcctv
lily tmrprho to her, when ho should
have commenced to reap tho harvest.
Bo ho said nothing lb her about It. Ho
wrotd to tho concern, requesting an
agency extensive enough to occupy
him continually: and udded many oth
cr'tlilngs which ho had better not havo
Tju) following day liu iniido u pretext
of n hctulacho to visit tho vlllagp posv
olUco somo two miles distant. Ho saw
his letter sauily In the mall, and then
returned 16 his work. Ho assisted hi
tho afternoon in bulldlm slono fence
but tlio labor was hard, uud JuliU Boy
ddn was suro ho hadnover performed
such n day's labor before.

Ho pleaded sicklies upon tho follow
ing day, mid tho day after no ono camo
for him lo work. Hu know of sovcral
men who would bo glad of his nails

tho few dollars Ho could earn only by

Ho would take mailers easy, nnd when
tho business camo up, ho would strike
at it with nil his energies.
Theru wero sovcral Ilttlo Improve
ments ho ought to mako about his own
premises; but what was tho object in
fitting up so much when it wasn't at all
likely that ho should always 11 vo there?
Tho third day brought tho longed for
lotter. John placed It in his pocket and
hastened homo. His' heart was light,
nnd he almost ran for a part of the dis
tance. Thero was n thicket besido tho
road, anil Into this Boydcn turned to
read his Important missive. Plrst ho
pulled out a largo circular, which ho
merely glanced at. His countcnanco fell
n Ilttlo as ho perceived It treated of gold
watches, but ho pulled out tho letter
accompanying, and ran over tho con
tents of thntassoon n.s ho could decyph
cr it. It was all flattery, slating thnt
from tho tenor of his letter they felt
sure ho wus tho very man they wanted
in that section, to introduco the now
hunting ease watch they wero Import
ing In vast quantities fromSwltKcrlnnd;
concluding by saying that they would
do anything to favor him, and hoped to
recelvo uu order for nt least ono case,
which ho could hardly fall 'to sell In any
town in n single day.
John glanced ovcrthe circular to find
what was meant by n caso.nnd what they
cost. He road.
"Put up In cases of six each, and sent by
express, prepaid, to nny part of tho
country, on receipt of price $150 per
caso. Every watch will sell for from
$7.r to $100 often more than that."
Hero was a blow for tho young man's
hopes. Notwithstanding tho Immense
proflts, it would require considerable
capital on which to commence. Ho
read tho wholo sheet over carefully,and
his heart beat with catisfaction ns he
rellected that such a tiinepicco never
hud been realized in that section. Thcro
weie certitlcates appended from many
eminent men, whom ho never heard of
to be suro, but of whnt matter was that?
They had used the watches, and found
them all that huinrtn ambition could
cravo I Ho thought over tho matter.
Tho parties expressed n desiro to assist
him perhaps they would deviate from
their established terms to do so.
Ho wrolo to them representing his in
ability to purchase an entire set, and
asking for some arrangement by which
he could commence upon a small scale ;
adding that ho intended to put tho
business through, and savo a handsome
sum from tho largo margin for profit,
He did not stop to reflect upon tho prob
abilities of tho caso, or to analyzo tho
proposition, as n man less credulous than
himself would havo done. Ha wns only
allured by tho golden prospects which
gave such unbounded promises.
Ill a few days camo tho answer from
tho proprietors. It was not their way
of doing bushier, lliey wrote, but as lie
seemed about tho right kind of agent,
thoy would break it package for Ills es
pecial bcneflt.nnd ho could send for such
a. number as ho wished at tho same
prico per watch us though he had taken
a package. His heart leaped with de
light nt the generosity. Ho could raiso
twenty-live, perhaps fifty dollars, nnd
then ho would bo on tho high road to
success! Ho said nothing of his plans,
for he was determined to astonish his
friends generally when lie made bis first
real speculation. With tliollttlo'iuone
ho had saved from his dally toll nnd
which was needed for more than ono
urgent use and such amount as ho bor
rowed, tho prico of n Hlnglo watch was
raised nud forwarded.
Truo to tho appointed day camo an In
nocent Ilttlo box through tho mall to
his address. Putting It in his pocket
be started for home, HU leet had nev
er seemed ho light before. lie' sprang
along tho road with un agility that sur
prised nil who saw him. Turning Into
tho thicket as before, ho broku open the
package. Thcro It lay tho shining
pretty thing! Ho took it out carefully,
and after admiring tho elegance of lis
general appearance, despite somo flaws
in tho finish, ho put It back carefully.
Ho would say nothing to Susan of this,
but would go to au adjoining town and
sell It fora hundred dollars, and twenty-
fivo if posslblo enough to buy tho bal-
auco of tho set.
Tlio following day ho mailo falso pre
tences tho flist which ho had over felt
It necessary to uso with his wlfo aud
set off for tho town. It was a good eight
miles, but ho reached it by noon, nnd
after taking n lunch ho dropped into it
"I'll seo what ho 6tiys about It,"
thought John, "aud may bo ho'll glvo
mo a fair prico for It. If ho does I think
I'll tako It, for what is twenty-fivo or
thirty dollars to mo now?"
Suro enough, hero was a vital ques
Ho was addressed by it smiling, good
naturcd sort of tt man, to whom ho gave
the watch with it perceptlblo pride oV
"About what would you pall that
timepiece worthV" ho asketl.
Tho mnn glanced It over, and some
thing of n smile appeared upon his
."Where did you got thlsY" ho asked,
"Mo? oh, I'm agent for 'em in this
vicinity," ho said, somewhat proudly,
aud rather, mistaking tho'fecllng which
prompted tho question.
Ah ! indeed?" said thojewclerdook-
iug at lilm again, "how do you sell
"Well, I hadn't really not a price,"
stammered John, to whom hading wus
rather if now' business "I only got
this quo yesterday I bupposo'lt is
worth about ono hundred dollars."
"What Would you call it worth?
bco you havo somo a gopti.deal )ll;o It

'No. slr,'' returned tho dcalor, rather
quU'kly, tU'vo nothing of thuJunU

somo customers entered nt tho mom
ent, and advanced to the twain, but tho
shopman found timo to add :
"It's ns truo as you llvol"
John left tho slioil mill iiiiivhiI iutiwi
tho street. Ho did not boiicvo what
tho man told lilm, but in thero was an
other shop somo distance below, It
wouiu uo no nnrm to apply tho lest.
"Ho feels Jealous of me." thought
John, "and hopes to persundo mo out of
tno business. Of courso it will hurt
him some, but trado Is free." Ho ontor-
od tho second shop.
"I'll tako him n Ilttlo dllTorently."wiis

"Is it his?"
' I don't know whether ho has bought

"ir no has n family of children. It
mljht bo worth ton cents, as a toy;
though such a ono as these" pointing
to somo toys which lny in n caso
"would ho bettor,and I sell m for eight

Thero was a look of blank dismay on
tho features of the questioner, which
might havo betrayed tho Interest ho
'Now I will convlnco you," said tho
Jowcier, "if you are not afraid of hav
ing this thing spoiled in tho looks."
Johu bado lilin proceed, and ho took
up a small vial filled with a colorless
liquid. Some of this ho applied to a
watch which ho had taken from tho
window, and after allowing it to re
main a short time, wiped U off.
"You seo It leaves no stain," ho said.
"Now I will mako a very slight appli
cation to this bogus concern."
Ho did so, and tho application was
followed by an Instant discoloration.
He wiped it nway with tho samo move
ment, but tho blot could not be effaced.
"I will gild tho plato over. If you
wish," ho said.
John did not wish. Ho dropped tho
bauble into his pocket, and started up
on his return. But how changed wus
everything 1 His golden dreams had
nil vanished, the natural lightness and
buoyauco of his step had fled. Tho

crushed it with a stono till not a sem

Thou ho drovo it Into the ground and
stamped down tho dirtnbovo It.
"There is my twenty-flvo dollars," ho
muttered. "Thauk my good luck

Tho way set mod much longer on his
return than It had been in tho morning,
but ho reached homo beforo night. Ho
was obliged to coutinuo his deception
toward his wllo, for sho noticed his
downcast manner in a moment. Ho
explained it by pleading hcadacho and
retired early. Next morning ho aroso
and sought work. No inoro dreams of
golden hue filled his mind, but ho had
still his strong muscles to toll nud bring
him certain rownrds. Ho hail learned
a lesson, and ono which was to bo a

took somo timo to regain what, he had
lost In timo nnd money. Strictly speak

more real servlco to him than tho mon
