With some lnf( rnal llcry foe,

HV IIUITW SAHOEKT
In n liugonnil sinoky foundry close by tlio
wharves in tlio town of I! , a gang of
workmen wcro Kettinji ready to cast the
largest bell ofthe St. John's cathedral chinic.
Only an hour more, and they would let the
glaring, hubhliug metal, flowing from tho
liiii:o furnace, into tho mold, which was
buried deep in the black earth close by.
It wasjust nt evening, and in tho gather
ng twilight the lurid bluo llamej that burst
fiom tho top of tho tall chimney, Hashed un
earthly gleaiiB upon the neighboring win
(biws and hotifC-tops,
Tlio sccno within tho foundry was wiord
nnd almost awful. Tho swarthy forms of
tho workmen, partly lighted by tho yellow
glire, moved about tike Tartarean shadows,
and the sooty beams and ponderous chains
crossing, half black, half golden, under the
glowing uiof,. recalled the engines of the
Cyclops under Mt. .."Etna.
Tho town clock struck six. It was time
fur supper. All tho men threw down their
tools, mid ran and put on their outer cloth-
"Ito back in half an hour sharp I" cried
the forge-master. "We shall make tho cast
nt a quarter of seven."
"All right, sir I" cried tho men in re
"I hear somo of tho town folks aro coming
down to beo tho work," said ono.
"Yes," said another, "and it'll bo some
thing to open their eyes. Tlicro was never
such a bell cast in tho wholo Stato 3 this
one will be."
In a moment more only ono workman and
the master wero left in tho foundry. Tho
former was to stay and watch the "blast."
He had brought a doubleallowaueo of dinner,
and ho would mako a supper on what re
mained. "Perhaps wo can get tho 'Inventor' to stay
with you, George," said tho master, laugh
ingly, as ho prepared to go.
"Yiv, whero is he?" returned tho man, in
the same jesting tone.
"He's been round tho works long enough
to know when anything goes wrong. Hollo!
hollo! I say I Where's' tho 'Inventor 1'
Comohciol Ah, thcro ho is!" And in h1
lent answer to tho summon, a'shoek-huired
fellow, with large gray eyes, and a pale, va
cant face, appeared from behind n pilo of
castings. Ho had on his back u gray shirt
much soiled with dust, and ho woro a pair
of huge pantaloons, held up by a single sus
pender. "Well, Mopus," I'ttoth tho man George,
slapping him rather roughly on tho shoul
der, "suppose you've got wit enough to help
yell if any thing's tho matter?"
Tho young fellow looked stupidly around
and nodded his head.
"Then sit hero and look nt that furnace
and don't tako your eyes off I"
Tho poor lad smiled, and meekly did as
ho was ordered just as an obedient dog
would havo l.tid down to watch his owner's
A queer fellow was thia ".Mopus;" stupid
enough in ordinary things to need a world
of watching, but withal wonderfully lit to
watch a furnace, llo knew all tho working
of the foundry,!))' what seemed a sort of bruto
histoid, though really his strango sagacity
in this was a remnant of a onco bright mind,
If anything happeua! or went on in an
unusual way, ho would always notice It, and
say what ought to bo done, tliuugh ho could
not tell, peihaps, why it ought lo bo done,
Two years befure, ho had been mi intelli
gent, promising lad, Ho was tho ton of a
designer connected with tho foundry com
pany, and had always been ullowid free
aiectH to tho shops, and to mingle with tho
men and watch their work. Hut ono day a
great llfling-chaiii broke, with Its load, and
an iron fingiuciit struck him on tho head,
inflicting a dangerous injury, l'roiu this
ho partially acovcicd, and only partially,
for his reason was Impaired, Lut his until
ral lovo lor inchlicry and iiiechuuicnl ex
pcrimcuU remained, and us lie icgulncd hi
bodily strength, ho spent most oi his timo
making small wheels nnd shafts, and putting
toffctlier odd contrivances, which ho would
crtli1l.it with immense prido nnd satisfaction.
This peculiar trait in tho young fellow
gained for him tho humorous tltlo of tho
"Invontor." All tho mon felt a groat kind
ness for him, oven though their manner to
ward him was occasionally harsh nnd impa
tient. Such was tlio person left to help watch
the great blast for tho casting of tho king
bell of tho chimo orSt. John's. Faithfully
ho kept his plaeo boforo tho furnace, whilo
tho man Georgo sat down at n little distance
nnd began to cat his supper. Doubtless tho
latter Intended to keep a general oversight,
but ho certainly mndo tho Inventor's oyos do
tho most of the looking. Whether ho felt a
kind of reckless trust in tho instinct of his
half-witted companion, or iudoloutly con
cluded that nothing wrong could happed, ho
was sadly u blame for charging himself so
little with the important duty before him.
Xot a word was said by cither watcher,
and only tho deep roar of tho furnace was
heard through tho vast foundry.
, George finished his .supper, and sauntered
into one of tho tool shopj to find his pipe.
"Inventor" sat alono before tho great blast.
Tho ono rational faculty of his feeble mind
enabled him to comprehend what it meant,
and oven something of tho magnitudo of the
enterprise that was ripening inside those
burning walls. Ho knew that tlio furnace
was full of valuable metal, and that close
beside him, buried out of sight in tho deep
sand, was tho huge mold, so soon to bo filled
with tho precious cast. He know and could
seo that all tho channels for tho How of tho
fiery liquid were ready, and that ucar tho
mouth of tho furiiaco stood the long iron rod
that was to be used when tho moment came
to let on tho molten stream.
All this his limited thoughts took in by
habit. Dimly conscious that something
great was soon to be done, ho eat with his
eyes on tho furnace, absorbed and intent.
Suddenly something startled him. There
was a slight noise, and a burning crack ap
peared near the top of tho furnace. Then
another crack, and a scorcliiuj brick fell out
and rolled to tho ground at his feet I
Tho lad opened his mouth to shriek, but
so terrified was ho that tlio sounds stuck in
his throat, as if ho had been in afitof night
mare. A thin red strem followed tho fallen brick,
and trickled down the furnace side 1 iho run
ning lava Then came another alarming
noise, and a thin gap half-way down the
masonry let out moro of the hissing metal.
Where was George? Was tho unfaithful
fellow still hunting for his pipe? Tho fur
nace was bursting, with only a poor, half
idiot lad to guard it.
What could he do? Ho did what perhaps
a lad in his right mind would not have dared
to do. Hushing to tho mouth of tbo furnace,
ho seized the long iron rod that stood near,
and tapped tho vent. Ono desperate thrust
with the sharp point up the terriblo funnel,
a few quick, prying strokes! Stand back,
now ! Tho confining clay fell away, and tho
yellow-white llood spurted outwitli resistless
force. It leaped into the clav-lined troughs,
.mil hissed its way, darning, down to tho
mouth of the bell-mold.
Tho "foul" had done a deed worthy of a
general on a field of battle.
Was it too late? Every moment new fis
sures opened in the doomed furnace. Some
of the upper stones toppled over. Still tho
metal poured out into tho mold, lint tho
waste was great from those gaping flaws.
Tho pressiiio was relieved by the opened
vent, but tho leaks multiplied continually.
It was art running a race wish ruin.
Poor "Mopus" stood powerless before tho
coming catastrophe, ills knees knocked to
gether, and his head swam. A great heap
of red hot bricks and rubbish fell at his feet.
lie had barely thought to get out of tho way
and avo his life, llo heard a wild bhout of
human voices iu tho distance, then an awful
roar behind hi in, and ho saw and felt him
self pursued by surges of seething fire.
Sharp, blistering pains pierced his fieh at a
hundred points. Tho rest was all a horrihlo
unintelligible dream. It was as if ho had
suddenly sunk into tho earth and been
swallowed up forever.
ity seven o'clock comparative quiet reign
ed again on tho seeno of disaster. Kuins lay
everywhere. Tho engines had quenched tho
llames that had caught tho building, and tho
men, blackened with Mnoke, stood iu silent
groups about the. remains of tho furnace. It
had fallen to pieces, and nothing was left
but heaps of steaming rubbish,
I'oor "Inventor," who had been found
with the tapping-rod in his hand, lying on
his face in tho sand, frightfully burned, had
been carried to his home.
Little was said, but tho few words spoken,
uttered with no mild emphasis tho natural
wrath of tho master and tho hands against
tho man George, wlioso excu-.o fur himself
only exaggerated his.ofleiisc.
"Seo what boa done, wild they a few
lays later, as they stood in tho self-burned
foundry. "1'ivo thousand dollars gouo lo
waste in a ininute! Tho best job in twenty
years spoiled I Tho rascal, to go hunting
for his pipe, and leavo that stuttering idiot
to watch I Is that all ho can say for liini-

tumbling to pieces !"
Tho master who had moro at stako than
tho men, of courso felt tho lo-s moro keenly
than they. Ho almost wept with mingled
irrief and rago, Suddenly something pecul
iar caught his cyo among tho debris, and ho
cried in a startled volco:
"Hallo! What's this? What's this?"

troughs which hud led from tho furnaco to

Hiblo meaning of tho iron found Iu tho in

A spado was put into his hands, and ho
began nervously lo hcavo away tho hot mass
that lay piled over tho boll-mold, it was a
hciciilruu tusk, but ho worked liko a giant,
and three or four of his men took hold and

spado pcnetiulcd the mud and touched komb

leaped up liko ono half franticc, und, plying

tho remaining mud, disclosing what looked

"Men," ho criid (nt, lifting his tlu.hcd
face, "tho bell is cast I"
"Who did this?" asked every excited volco

"Como with me, two or tiirco of you I"
cried the master. "I think T know who did

They hurried away to tho homo of tho
half-witted boy. Tho attendant met them
with her finger on her llp.1.
"Tlio poor lad la In a brain fever," she
"Does ho say anything iu his delirium?"
whispered tho master.
"0, yes, ho raves all tho time nbotit the

Tho men exchanged glances. It was in
deed truo. Tho idiot had cast tho great bell
of St. John's. Just thon tho physician enmo
"Perhaps ho will recover his reason by
this shock and sickness," ho said. "Such
things havo happoned."
"Do you think so? Pray Heaven ho

his men j and they turned nway, deeply
Two months later tho great bell hung
from a huge derrick in the lathe-room of the
factory, and beneath it stood a heavy truck
upon which it was about to bo lowered. 'A
silence fell upon tho group of workmen as
the pale face and feeble form of "Inventor"
appeared, homo in on a small roclintng chair.
llo had recovered his reason, and was fast
getting back' his strength. His largo gray
eyes instantly fastened themselves on tho
bell, that splendid masterpiece, whoso milk
ing meant so much to him. They had told
him tho whole story of tho casting, nnd the
disaster in tho foundry, but it all sounded
liko a wild romaiico to him.
"I remember nothing that happened,"
said he, shaking his head with a smile. "It's
all new to me, all now and strango so
"Yes," said tho master, devoutly, "it was
Every cyo was turned on tho invalid.
Somo of tho men felt afraid, it waa so much
like a resurrection to have him there among
them, the boy they had known so long under-
witted, now a young man keen and intelli
gent, as if changed into another being.
"I should like to strike tho bell once," said
ho. Two men lifted him up, and nutasmall
hammer in his hand.
He struck ono gentle blow. A deep,
sweet, mournful tone, solemn as tho sound
of distant waterfalls, rolled from tho great
bell and echoed through tho foundry. Tears
filled the eyes of tho rough men as they heard
"Ah," said tho master, "there's a hallelu
jah in that, and it may well begin here.
Long may this bell praise God ! Ho saved
it in the ruins of the furnace by ouo wise
thought in tho ruins of a htinianbrain. Our
furnace is rebuilt, and behold, this dear boy
has his reason again I Tho bell and tho boy
shall glorify God together l"
"Amen l" murmured all tho listeners.
Then tho great bell was lowered, and as
tho truck rolled away with its melodious
burden, the boy was lifted and carried after
it and both went out into the sunny day to
gether, the rough men standing in the door
ways waiving their hands.
Little "Inventor" afterward well proved
his claim to tho title so lightly given him in
his unfortunate boyhood. His namo is now
read on many a bell whose matchless rich

There is always a way out of discourage

constancy of purpose, an invincible determi

for tho elements of timo to keep in our af

Coffee, as It appears in commerce is tho
seed of a small evergreen tree. Indigenous
to Southern Abyssinia and Liberia, occupy
ing n narrow belt, probably, across tho con
tinent of Africa. It belongs to tho natural
order clnchonacie, tho samo order from
which quinine is derived. It Is often seen
in our hot-houses; thcro It is a small shrub,
with dark green foliage. Tho seeds, if fresh,
readily germinate; and in a suitable climate
tho plant commences to bear in three years,
and continues bearing during twenty years
or more. There is ono main crop during tho
year, but thero aro flowers and ripo fruit ev
er on tho tree, liko most other tropical fruits,
Tho ripo fruit resembles a cherry in sizo
nnd color, but containing two seeds instead
of one. Tho seeds aro imbedded in a pulp,
which, nt a particular time, is edible. If al

third of all tho coffee consumed in the world,

tho largest and most populous, tho least.
Tho effect of coffee as a beverago ia vari
ously estimated by different individuals.
This wo should expect from tho varying
character of tho materiel imbibed. Hut the
physiological "fleets of coffee are not in
doubt. It operates in two very distinct op
erations. First, by stimulating tho nervous
and vascular tissues. This is experienced
by every ono after taking a cup of good cof
fee. The system is invigorated and tho sen
sibilities arc more acute. Second, it retards
the transformation of the muscular tissues
into lower chemical compounds. This has
been proved by Lehman by direct experi
ment, lly this operation tho cofleo acts as
an equivalent for meat-producing food, if it
doea not actually produco it. It saves the
powers of the body if it does not create them.

an officer unknown to tho Army of tho Po
tomac, who brought an order couched in
three lines and signed by Hulleck, This or-
er dissm'tfsed NcClellun from the command
f tho army and designated Rurnsido as his
successor, cucli a pleco ol news: lell witn
tho btiddenncss of a thunderbolt on thcso two
Ulcers, whom an old and closo friendship
United ; but tho latter nlone showed an emo
tion at tho order which imposed ou him a
responsibility to which ho never aspired.
After McClellan had read tho dispatch, with
out any visible feeling, ho passed it to Rum-
side, simply saying "You command tho
army" Rurnsido resisted for somo timo All
his friends and his former chief pressed him
to accept ; they overcame his scruples, which
the future was unhappily destined to justify.
On the morning of the StU the Army of tho
Potomac learned with nstoneshment nnd
grief that It had lost tho chief who had
formed it, who had first led it to battle, who
on the morrow of a great disaster had restor
ed it to confidenco in itself, and who at length
had just couducted it to victory, Wo will
not hero judge tho military career of General
McClellan. Tho authorities at Washington
took every kind of precaution to prevent tho
oldiers of tho Army of tho Potomac from
givingto McClellan proofs of their sympathy'
which would havo been too sovcro a criticism
of their decision, and tho news, of his de
cision, and tho news of his departure caused
universal joy mining thu adversaries whom
he had so often encountered on fields of
U great questions liuvo been settled by
men tn earnest by men who havo been
bound by a principle nbout their hearts
which they como to regard as "part and par

arizing policy never yet conferred u lasting
benefit upon tlio world.
Tho raco of mankind would perish, did
they ceato to help each other. From the

till tho moment that tonm kind assistant

All, thcrcfoie, that need aid, havo a right to
