A burglar cllmed Into an editor's room-
Needy and poor was ho
And ho saw In Iho dim, uncertain gloom,
w tin legs as long na the stem of a broom,
A pair of u-ousers. 1 I'll Just freeze to 'cm!"
Ho chuckled u 1th llcndlsh glee.
Ho lilted them up from the b uk of tho chair
Lightly they hung on till arm:
They were tho editor's only pair,
Thtrher than gossamer everywhere:
Oh but the knees were worn and bare!
Good clothes when tho weather Is warm!
All over tho room lie searched In vain
There was no more to find;
Thcro was no sign of sordid gain,
Nor passing drop, from a golden rain
Only tho wealth of a sleeper s brjln,
Tho peace of tho editor's mind.
Ho turned hi, bock oi tho happy home,
Thoughtfully hett'ng thoso pants;
Out of the window ho cautiously dome:
Ho emptied tho pockets a broken comb,
A stub of a pencil, a manuscript poem,
Answered his searching glance.
He started; the tears noshed Into his eyes;
He leaned up against the fence;
A look of pitying, muto mrprlso
Softened his face; ho stiaed his cries;
Ho looted at his swag, and measured lis size,
aiue about nine evuls.
Into his pockets hlsoitn ho went,
Ana ho dragged out a ten-dollar bill,
And ho hastily crammed It, every cent,
Into tho editor's pockets, nnd bent
Tho trousers Into a wad, and sent

"Twas a charity well bestowed,"
He sold to himself; and when night had fled.
And tho editor rose from his virtuous bed,
And found tho money, ho whistled and said.

Dick Whittington and bis Cat are among
the important personages in English hi1
tory, however much of romance there may
be in, the story ; nnd it is difficult tq say
which is the more important of the two, for
the cat is credited by tradition with being
the making of the Liord Mayor. We have
recently had more than one inquiry in regard
to them, and our readers, young and old.will
be glad to have the following, which U
made up from the most authentic traditions,
although it is not vouched for as absolute
history. We copy from The JUovs Own
Paper of London :
A poor boy, meanly clad, and carrying in
his hand a small bundle, trudged sadly along
the road which led over the moor of ! ins
bury to Highgate. The first streak of dawn
was scarcely visible in the eastern sky, and
as he walked, the boy shivered in the chill
morning air. More than once be dashed
For Wells 10 to 75 feet Deep from his eyes the rising tears, and clutched
hn little wallet nnd quickened bis pece, as
if determined to hold to some desperate re
solve despite of all drawings to the contrary,
As the road rose gradually towards Uigbgate
the sun broke out from behind tho clouds
on his right, and lit up fields and trees and
hills with a brightness and richness which
contrasted strangely with the gloom on the
boy's face, and the poverty of his appear
ance. The birds in thehedges began to sing
and the cattle to low and tinkle their bells
the whistle of tho herdsmen came up from
tho valley, and all nature seemed to wake
witli a cry of gladness to greet the new
Even poor Dick Whittington could not
wholly resist the cherriug influence of that
bright summer morning. It was impossible
to believe that everything was miserablo in
the midst of so much glad ness, and Dick's face
brightened and his step became brisker al
most without hia knowing it, as he trudged
higher up that steep road. His thoughts,
too, took a less desponding turu.
"After all," said he to himself," "per
haps I am foolish to be running away from
my master's house. I had better be tho
scudery-boy of good Master Fitzwarren, al
though his cook does ill-treat me, and lead
mo a dog's life, than a vagabond idle boy
which I am uow. And yet I cannot endure
the thought of returning to that cruel wo
man. Would that I knew what to do I"
Thus he thought and questioned with him
self, when he came tonetoueeet by the way
side ; and here he sat to rest, and ruminate
further upon bis evil fortune.
If BOtne voice would but say, 'Return,' I
would return," said he, "even thuugh sho
scold and beat me, for I know uot what
e world. Was
ever such a wretched boy as 1 1"
And he burled his face in his hands and
gave himself over to his misery. Suddenly
in the quiet morning air there catno to bis
ears a wonderful Bound, up from tho valley,
where, in the sun, shone, the towers and
steeples of London town. It was the sound
of distant bells, and, as the boy listened, it
came clearer and clearer, and seemed to fall
the air with the very voice for which he had
but a minute since beeu longing. But what
a strange story the bells told
"Turn again, Whittington
Tbrloo Lord Mayor of London 1'
Over and over again they said the same
words. Over and over again Dick persuaded
himself he was dreaming, yet felt sure he
was awake, "Turn again I" that was plain
enough, and he could believe it.even though
Bow Bells said it. But "Thrice Lord
Mayor of London i" what could that mean?
That was uever meant for the poor ill used
scullery-boy of Master Fitzwarren, the mer
cer in the Minories 1 And yet, what could
be- more distinct thati the voico of those
He sprang from bis seat, turned his face
in the direction of that wonderful sound
and ran. And that morning, when the
family of Master Fitzwarren assembled for
their early meal, and the scolding cook took
possession of the kitchen, Dick Whittington
was in his place, scouring the poU and pans
In the scullery, singing to himself a tunc, no
one had ever heard before.
Only a ftw days after this adventure o
Dick's news came ol the arrival in port o
ono or Master Fitzwarren' vessels with a
valuable cargo on board. Now It was the
might send out ; and when, many mouths
before this, Master Fitzwarren had been
(quipping tho vessel now In question, he
had summoned all his servants together, and
beginning with the chief, had called upon
them to put their savings into his venture,
promising each n fair return of whatever
profit his sharu should entitle him to at the
end of tho voyage.
Dick, poor boy, had no money : nothing
in the world but a cat, whom he loved as his
only friend, and to whom ho owed no com
mon gratltudo for the manner in which she
had protected iilm against the rats that in
fe.sted his garret. When it came to Ms turn to
put his share Into the voyage he had not the
heart to otrer this companion and ho had
nothing else he could call his own so he
begged to be excused. II is master, however
Insisted that, as his servant, he must put
down whatever he had, however little, and
even though this cat had cost only a penny,
to sea she must go, nnd Dick should have
full value for her when the the voyago was
Dick wept at this, and tho young daugh
ter of Master Fitzwarren, being moved to
pity, offered from her own money what
would preserve to tho lad his four-footed
friend. But not even this would the stern
merchant allow, and Dick therefore had to
bid a tearful farewell to his favorite nnd
resign himself to his loss.
Ml this had taken place many months
Now when tho "Unicorn" for tltat was
tho name of tho vessel returned to port,
great was the astonishment of everybody
(and no one's greater than Dick s) to find
that the principal portion of the treasures
on board belonged to the little scullery-boy
of Master Fitzwarren.
The very first day of its arrival there was
brought to the house a cabinet of jewels,
forming part of the boy's share, which was
considered too precious to bo left on board
ship. And tho men who brought it told
this wonderful story.
When the ship reached Algiers, in Africa,
the ruler nf the land ordered all the crew to
wait upon him with presents, which accord
ing they did, after which he prepared a feast
and invited them all to partake. But uo
sooner were the covers removed than a swarm
of rats, attracted by the scent, .of iJlb good
things, come and devoured atl the victuals
before their very faces. This, the governor
told them, was no unusual thing, for rats
were the plague of his land, and he would
give any price to know of a means to be rid
of them. Then one of the sailors bethought
him of Dick Whittington'a cat who had
already distinguished herself on shipboard
by her industry in her art and accordingly
next day, when the feast was served and the
rats, as usual, prepared to make away with
it, puss was produced, and not only drove
away the pest, but killed a considerable
number. This happening for several days,
his highness was so delighted that he in
stantly offered an enormous sum for the pos
session of so remarkable an animal, and
loaded the crew with presents in token of
his joy and gratitude.
Such was the story of tho men, which ex
plained this wonderful prize which fell to
the share of the fortunate Dick Whitting

He, poor lad, could not understand it all
aud went on, with his drudgery in Uie scul
lery as if nothing had happened, until h'is
master compelled hint to quit it, and from
being his boy-of-alLwork made him his
partner in business.
Then Dick remembered the words (he
bells had sung to him a week ago, aud re
joiced that ho had obeyed their call.
He rejoiced at another thing, too, which
was that the kind young daughter of Master
Fitzwarren, who had pitied him in his pov
erty, did not avoid him in his prosperity,
but smiled happily upon him, when he took
his seat at the family (able to eat out of the
dishes ho had so recently scoured.
So this scullery-boy became a rich mer.
chant, and being just and honorable as well
as wealthy, he gained the respect aud love
of all with whom he had to do. When he
grew to be a man he married the kind Miss
Fitzwarren, which made him happier than
all his wealth.
Not only did merchants look up to him,
but nobles and even kings came to him in
their money dilllculties, aud he was the
same upright gentleman to all men. Hon
ors increased, and at last the prophecy of
Bow Bells became true, aud Sir Richard
Whittington was made Lord Mayor of Lon
In that capacity he grew still in riches and
fame, aud when bis first term was expired,
his admiring fellow-citizens.aftera few years
made him Lord Mayor for a second, and
when the second term was past, for a third.
His third mayoralty happened in MlD.wben
King Henry IV. was on the throne of
England J and then it was his honors' rose to
their highest pitch, for, ho entertained at
his own table the king aud queen pf the
land in such grand style that Heury sam o
him, "Never king had such a subject."
Aud never poor bad such a friend. Hi
never forgot the little forlorn boy on High
gate Hill, and it was his delight to his latest
day to make the hearts of the needy glid
and show to all that it is not for money or
grandeur, but for an honest soul and a kind
heart that a man is to be loved and bouored
by his fellows.

HOW TO CUiiK HAY.
Curing hay in the cock is preferable to
sun drying. The sweating and fermentation
improve, and prevent heating in the mow or
stack. The writer prefers to put up hay, af
ter the dew is off, in moderatoly large cocks.
fourfeet wide and high, after it has lal
spread in the sun for one full day. It may
thus stay safely for one week, if necessary
and a hay cap will protect it from 24 hours'
rain, The day it is drawn in a mau should
start early and throw open the cocks, to get
a fiual airing for two or three hours before
is taken up.
General Grant's Arabian horses those
presented to him by the Sultan have ar
rived by sea at New Haven. They were
taken to a blacksmith's to be shod, an
many persons came o see them, ollering to
purchase the old shoes, or even a single uail
as mementoes, at almost any price. Whilo
the horses were being ltd to the New York
boat, one of them kicked a spoke from lb
wheel of a passing carriage. A writ was
served, and the Bum of $12 was paid to set
tie the rase. The sum was considered by
some people a high price for a elngl

Grant foresaw trouble, nod wanted In that
place a man "who had smelt powder." Gen.

Inaugurated on the 1th of March in spite of
Grant and his army, that the Custom Houses
would be seized to create a revenue, and
that the Democratic President would be
sented by a grand popular uprising. New
York, It was plain, would be the central
point of the new revolution. Mr. Tllden
vould take the oath on tho steps of the City
Hall at the hands of one of tho Democratic
Judges, and simultaneously tho Custom
House aud the Sub-Treasury would bo seiz
ed. I know that President Grant and his
advisers wero very much afraid of tho ro
sult. But Grant, though he was anxious,
never hesitated about the course ho was to
pursue, He had determined to use every
soldier and sailor and gun at his command
to put down anything like a Democratic re
bellion. If it had been anybody but Grant
who stood in the way Tilden might have
been inaugurated and have gotten possession
of the revenues in spite Of Congress and the
'But you have asked what I intended to
do in case Mr. Tilden attempted to carry out

him with high treason, to convey him se

respect for the law, or it would have been
the first blow of a terrific conflict between
the law and its violators.' 'Do you really
believe, General, it would have beeu possi-
e to arrest Mr. Tllden ?' 'I don't believe
; I know it. Of course, it would not be

erner's Island and marching them up to
ramercy Park, but it would have been
one so quietly and effectively that all re
sistance would have come too late. Just as
sure as he had dared take the oath of office
he would have been whirled through these
streets and landed in a gunboat. When he
had got through with his trial for treason

very genial, but he is not a mau to be tri

Tilden would have been utterly impossible-

WHAT WAS LEPKOSV IN Till! I11ULR?
Every one knows how large a space Is
occupied by tho Levltlcal laws regarding
leprosy, and most persons who have thought
about it havo probably been perplexed by
tho fact. Tho subject has hitherto been ob
scure, owing to our Insufficient knowledge of
the varieties and symptoms of that terrible
disease. Indeed, It Is only within the last
few years that medical investigations, car
ried on in tho countries which are Its special
homes, have cleared up all tho debated fea
turcsjoxcept, perhaps, Its supposed contagi
ousness, in regard to which tho committee
of our London college of physicians "con
sider that the weight of evidence Is decided
ly on tho negatlvo side," although there is
a considerable amount of testimony that
'the disease is contagious in n certain stage,
when tho ulcers are running." Now all this
recent Information is condensed, from which
it appears that the truo leprosy of the law
was not tho common white leprosy, lepra
vulgarit, or dry tetter, which, unless ac
companied by ulcers, did not render tho suf.
ferer unclean; but WfphantiruU, under eith
er of its chief forms, the tuberculated
and the anaesthetic, the various symptoms
of which in their earlier stages are delineated
with remarkable accuracy In the rules laid
down for the priest's guidance. Should the
student of tho law wonder why a physical
disease should be tho subject of such min
ute religious legislation, he will find enough
in these "Notes" to convince him that an
ample explanation is to bo found in the
sanitary aspect of the subject. Egypt was
in ancient times the chief seat of this most
malignant and horrible of diseases, whicl
as a poison in the blood descended from
parent tq child with a frightful persistence ;
and the Israelites, in their crowded nnd Ber
vile condition, must have been peculiarly
liable to contract it, and carry its fatal germs
in their desert wanderings. Hence the
necessity, to their prosperous development,
of hedging it round with the most stringent
restrictions, and by the laws of uncleanllness
and separation checking its spread through
intermarriages between the healthy and the
tainted. Of course, we are not precluded
from seeing a religious meaning underlying
these sanitary ordinances, and Mr. Clark ac
cordingly sums up his dissertion by adding
that "the proper treatment of leprosy as a
disease of the body became a type of the
proper treatment of sin, not through a
mere resemblance which might recommend
itself to tho fancy, but through the law be
ing an inspired interpretation of the truths
of nature. The Quarterly Review.

A Mayvillo (N. Y.) correspondent of the
Buffalo Kxprttt, under the date of the 3d
Inst., gives a graphic account of a tragedy
in Chautauqua county, N. Y. The account
says a blood curdling and determined sui-
cldo occurred In tho town of Stockton, Chau
tauqua county, on Sunday morning. Rich
ard Mack had been living with a woman
who had a young son, and had often tried
to have her gat rid of the boy some way.
The little fellow recently died under sus
picious circumstances. The neighbors sus
pected foul play, and had his stomach sent
to Buffalo for chemical aualyzation. On
Saturday night Mack was informed that the
examination of the stomach had been made,
and that he would be arrested on Monday
When Monday morning came, pools of
blood were found In the house, but Mack
was missing. Search was made in and
around the house, and tracks and a trail of
bloOd were found leading towards tho woods
qulto a distance from tho place. Tho neigh
bors, now in a high state of excitement, fol
lowed tho trail over the fields and over
fences, where, as some short halt had been
made, a large pool Of blood would be found,
Tho excitemeht now became raoie than ever
Intense. Had a murder been committed,
and tho victim dragged away for conceal
ment, or had a suicide started the life-current
and walked away tn die ?
After reaching the woods they found
bloody marks on several trees as If they had
been examined, and then the trail led on.
After going some distance a terrible sight
was encountered, High from the ground
the dead body of Maek was seen hanging
upon a tree by a rnpo around the neck. Up.
on close inspection it was found that he had
before leaving the house, cut his throat
from ear to car, evidently intending to di
in that way ; but he had failed to cut auy
of the great veins, nnd finding that he bled
so slowly he then went out into tbo woods,
climbed tiftinto a tree, the body of which
was covered with blood, adjusted the rope
carefully, and jumped down. i. lie corpse
was a sickening spectacle to behold.

There is a good deal more broom corn now
raised by the farmers in the interior than
was formerly done, and which, when prop

the winter season when, for a least a couple
of months, there is not much to do for the
force in reserve. The ground Is prepared as
it is for Indian corn, and the seed is put in
after the planting of the latter has been
done. Some sow it in drills and some in
hills, the rows being from three and a half
to four feet apart. When in drills the
plants stand about a foot apart, and when
