BT FATHER RTAN, The shadow of the mountain falls athwart the low ly plain, And tho shadow of the cloundlet hangs above the mountain s head And tho highest hearts and the lowest wear tho shadow of some pain, And the smllo Is scarcely rutted ere the anguished tear is Shed. For no eyes have there been ever wlthouti-a weary tear. And thoso lips cannot be human which never heaved a sigh; For without the dreary winter tbera has never been a year. And the tempests hide their terrors la the calmest summer Bky. So this dreary Ulo Is passlng-and we movo amid Its maze, And we grope along together, half in darkness, half in ugnt ; And our hearts are often hardened by the m) stories ot our ways, Which are never all In shadow and never wholly nngnt. And our dim eyeB ask a beacon and our weary feet a guide. And our hearts ot all ltto's mysteries seek the mean lng and the key; And a cross gleams o'er our pathway, on It hangs tne crucined. And He answers all our yearnings by the whisper, 'ronow no." Select Story. NOBODY BUT A PRINTER. iom Chrittian Telegraph. 'Oh I he's only a printer,' exclaimed Miss Ellen Dupree, a flirting and foppish girl, to one of her female friends, who was speaking in terms of praio and commendation of Mr. Barton Williams, a young and very In telligent printer. 'Well, Miss Ellen, you seem to speak as though a printer was not entitled to re spcctability. I hope you'll explain your self,' replisd Miss Mary Grossman. 'Well, I hope you'll excuse me. I do not think it becoming for a young man who has to labor for a living, to try to move into the society of those who are his superiors. And moreover, he might win tbe affections of a girl superior to him in rank ; and then do you think her parents would be pleased ? I know I would rather live an old maid all my days than marry a poor printer a man who has to toil day and night ; and then Lh I to think of being ranked among the poor I' whined out Miss Dupree, 'Then you think they are beneath you. 'Yes, ma'am, of course.' 'Both in worth and intellect too, I sup pose ; do you not V 'Yes everything. 'Are you superior to a Franklin, to a Blackstone, to a Campbell, and many other eminent men who were printers ? Or do you believe your intellectual powers soar above those of a Forney or a Willis, and many other distinguished printers of tb present day ?' '0, now and then you may come across one that is respectable ; but they are 'few and far between.' And as to Mr. Williams, I do not consider him a Franklin or a Black' stone, or any one else much.' 'Nor do I consider him a Franklin or a Blackstone either; but I do think him a very intelligent and handsome young man, and worthy of any young lady's attention, and I expect to treat him as such.' 'Well, I expect to consider him beneath my notice.' 'Now, Miss Dupree, I think you ought to reflect upon what you are saying, and have some regard for my feelings. You know not what you may come to, before you die.' 'Well I don't think I shall ever come to be tbe wife of a printer, or any body who has to labor ; nor do I intend to counten anco such. Miss Crossman remained silent for some time, while her face reddened with indigna. tlon. Mr, Williams was her lover, and a very good looking man, he was of ordinary size fair complexion, dark bair, beautiful whiskers of jet black, and a high and promt' nent forehead lively and intelligent in con' versation, and fluent and affable in his ad' dress.' A gentle rap was heard at the door, and the servant Immediately announced Mr. Willliams. He entered tho parlor, and Miss Crossman rose and introduced them Miss Dupree, Mr. Williams.' Miss Dupree affected to be polite returned i a Biignt dow, ana coony saiu i , .. , 'Good evening, sir.' Mr. Williams and Miss Crossman con versed freely, mostly upon literary subjects, upon which both were well posted ; and, of course they entertained each other pleasantly while Miss Dupree sat as though she was In despair now and then giving a lazy nod of assent or dissent to any and everything said to ber. Mr. Williams was gone, and Miss Dupree turned to Miss Crossman 'Mary, I am really astonished at you I Ynu are certainly In love with, that fellow. . .. do ,ik but j I vou pn never condescend to keep company 1 W(U a printer,' mumbled JU las Uupree. THE SEQUEL. Ten years were past. A man aud his wife were seated before a blazing fire. The even lng was extremely cold, and the wind blew fiercely and keen. Yes, and the editor of the "Tribune" was housed, with his wife, lu their Btately mansion, furnished In tbe best style, and lighted brilliantly with costly chandeliers, They were the happy parents of four intelligent and Interesting children, It was about the hour after Bundown and the bell had rung for tea, A rap was heard at the street door and upon opening it, there stood a woman, pale and dejected, and ap parently not fur from the grave, She bad with her three ragged children, shivering wib cold. The gentleman and bis lady I kindly asked them in to the fire. BLOOMSBURG, PA., FRIDAY, AUGUST 22. 'Sir,' said tho poor woman, 'will you bo pleased to give me a little money Is buy some bread for my hungry children 1 My husband has been drinking for the last three weeks, And left me without a morsel to give these poor Innocent, or any fuel to keep them warm,' and then she wept bitterly. 'Where do you live, ma'am?' said the gentleman. 'In the garret of the old Phoenix Hotel, sir.' How long has your husband been ad-1 dieted to drink ?' asked the gentleman's I wife. 'About three years.' 'Madame,' rejoined tho generous editor, 'I am truly sorry for you, and of course shall I bestow upon you such charity as I think you Will you relate your misfortunes? I always feel a deep sympathy for the unfortunate. 'Mine is a sad Btory. I was bro't up in affluence j my father was a wealthy mer chant In Chatham street. My husband was also rich when we were married. We took a tour to Europe and returned home, and we lived happily and prosperously for twoyears. I Mr. Brooks was a gay and fashionable young I man. He spent his money freely, and we lived extravagantly. Three years more and I he was considerably on the declining ground I and Anally, by high living and unnecessary expenditures of money, we were dispossessed of our home and reduced to abject poverty,! and then my husband took to drink, and now am a beggar, with these children depending on my success for a living. And as such I beseech you , in behalf ot my poor little children, to bestow upon me such charity as you feel disposed to give.' Her story was told and met a kind re-1 spouse from a generous heart. The lady of the house recognized the poor woman ; but I she did not yet feel disposed to make herself known, but ushered them into the dining room, and sat down with them to a warm suDner. juadaine, saiu tne lauy, 'wnat was your maiden name?' 'Ellen Dupree.' 'Oh I Ellen, have you come to this ?' The poor woman was so. overcome with gratitude and surprise, that she could not utter a single work. She thought the lady's voice was a familiar one ; she had heard it before, but could not remember when or where : and after a long time she murmured '1 think I have known you in time, but I can't remember your name. What is your name, my good lady ?' 'Mary Crossman was my name when I knew you.' '.Mary wno ( 'Mary Crossman.' 'My God I Who is your husband 2' 'Oh 1 he's nobody but a printer.' The poor woman remembered being ln troduced, before her marriage, to Mr. Wil Hams, and she remembered, too, how coolly and indifferently she treated him on that occasion. Yes. 'nobody but a printer' went like a dagger to her heart. That 'printer' was now her benefactor and her friend. Young ladies, if you marry an industrious and Intelligent young man, and become I wealthy in your old age, you do well, but if you marry a vain, foppish dandy, of the non compos mentis order, and Bhould be brought from affluence in youth to beggary in old age, you do worse. Remember that, ladles, and make the I proper improvement. Ghost-Stricken Schuylkill. It is only on raro occasions that the people of Schuylkill county tako any stock in ghost stories and when they do the witness must be of unimpeachable character and not given to exaggerating. Such a story, however, comes from reliablo authority at the foot of Broad Mountain, on the Centre turnpike, and those who have heard it are inclined to believe it. Tho two young men who had their hair curl ed by the apparition are James R. Porter and Henry Iledioghouse. Ou one occasion they drove out of Newcastle to visit the house of a friend named Kirshlings' who lives on Broad Mountain, and they left Kir shilings about 11 o'clock for home. After driving a mile or so, Redioghousc noticed that the horso was trembling violently and evinced a dosiro to stop. He applied the whip freely and under its influence tho horse moved on a few yards ; but then came to a standstill and rofused to bo either coaxed or driven further. While the occupants of the wagon were debating who Bhould get out and lead tho horse, Potter looked down tho road and to his horror saw a Btrango whito object riso out of the ground. Bedinghouse saw the apparition about tho samo time ; but sup. posed it to be a cow, Tho horso now became perfectly wild and uncontrollable and tbo wagon was backed off tbo road until tho hind wheels rested in a gully. In the meantlmo tho spook took the form of a gigantic man, clothed from head to foot in white, aud marched toward tho now thoroughly fright ened men with majestic strides. When tho liBuro was within about fifty vards of tbo .nn u vtnnn,1 ond Wrnnmt th men to aonroach. It is DerhaDS unneccsiary to eay.the invitation was not accepted, although Potter asserts that he did not feel as frighten ed then as ho did when tbe spook vanished. The ficuro remained in the road about ten ,intQ H, VnrlKr lli nl l.nt Ueil nrr- house is confident that it was there much longer. Thomeu also differ in their stories .... . , o about the way the ghost disappeared. Port- cr, who by the way seems to have been tho lion of tho party, states that after remaining in tho road about ten minutes it walked slow lv to tho west side and molted into a c oud of tnUt tViat floated awav nn the midnight nir. .i. r .1 .i.. t...i ini, thB 'snnnlr nfler walking to the side of the road disappeared in tho ground aud out of Mb6- His bead and his hand are co-labor.

Heated In the orches tra a lady and gentleman ; the former much enamored of the latter, In fact.de- tirous of winning htm. The lady, however, has flirting tendencies, and indulges them with a handsome party In the circle. The escort Is not unobservant of this little by play, and, finally, asks smilingly : 'Do you know that gentleman with whom you are tuning T An embarassed negative Is the reply. Tho escort immediately crosses the thca tre, puts a similar question to the other con spirator, 'Sir, are you acquainted with the lady at whom you have been smiling this naif hour, No r 'Would you like to be?' pleasantly, Very much surprised, 'certainly,' 'Then come with mo.' A moment later the escort introduces the not altogether comfortable pair. Then tho mild expression leaves the Insulted gentle' man s face, and he says, sternly ; 'Now, sir, you may accompany this lady borne With a bow he takes his leave, and the woman who loves him never hears his voice again. SPREADING MANURE. The old-fashioned method of plowing un der manure has become obsolete. Good farmers now no longer follow old fashions because they are old : but having become used to think for themselves, and knowiue much more of the scieuco of their art than was known a score of years ago, they are ready to strike out new paths for themselves, The common method with manure now is, to keep it as near the surface, and to inter- mingle It with the soil, as much as possible. I We have discovered that in feeding plants wo must not only place the food within easy I reach of the roots, but must also supply the I best food in the best condition. These con- ditions are secured by a thorough mixture of the manure in as finely divided a condi- tlon as possible throughout the upper three or four inches of the soil. I Aue oest practice is, to spread the manure I upon the plowed ground and to work It In with the harrow. This is most convenient ly done by having manure In fine condition. Fine manure may bo made In two ways eithet by piling it and rotting it in the heap, or by using only short litter. It Is found in practice that it pays to cut the litter with a fodder cutter, so that it will not only absod- ingmoreoi the liquid manure.butthat it can kn Anatl ...nA.I I C L rTll - - 1! harrow will then mix the manure with the soil in the most effective manner. With cftotu Bficwi nucu iieau. me urumirv i long manure the work is not so easily done, out it may ne accompnsnoa by presevering. ihe manure will be drawn into heaps,doubt less, but by freeing the harrow and spread' mg these, and harrowing again, and again if necessary, the desired result will be at tained. X here are some improved kinds of narrows wnicn ao tnis worlc mucn better than others. The sloping-tooth harrow acta I lavorabiy ny pressing tbe manure into the .rth over it ! tho iL. . - a . "oil, and drawing the earth flexible chain harrow has the ame effect but tbe steel disc barrow not only does this but it cuts and breaks up the long litter, aud reduces it to fragments. This harrow con' sists of a series of thin, sharp-edged discs, which revolve upon axles in a different di rection from that of tbe movement of tbe implement. Each disc thus not only cuts into the soil behind it, this latter effect be ing assisted by the concave saucer shaped form of the disc. The result Is very satis factory either when sod has been turned down (and this comes under the head of ma nuring) or when coarse manure is to be spread ; tbe soil, is left in a very favorable condition for sowing or planting. These short hints may be found seasonable at any time, because tbe makug and use of ma nure is a work of every day in the year in one way or another, or should be. Ameri can Agriculiurut.

A MODERN SERMON. The following exhibits the method upon I which the average parson constructs his de- lectable discourses i 'Bretheren, the words of the text are i Old Mother Hubbard, she went to the cup board , To get her poor dog a bono : Rut when she got there the cupboard was bare, And so tho poor dog got none.' 'ibese beautiful words, dear friends, car- ry with them a solemn lesson. I propose this evening to analyze their meaning and to apply It, lofty as it may be to our every day life. Old mother Hubbard, she went to tho cup board, To get her poor dog a bone. Mother Hubbard, you see, was old : there being no mention of others, we may presume sho was alone ; a widow, a friend- less, old solitary widow. Yet did sho despair 1 Did she sit down and weep, or reau a novel, or wring her bands 7 No I the went to the cupboard. And here observe that she wtnt to the cupboard. She did not hop, or skip or run, or jump, or use any I other peripatetic artifice; she solely and merely went to the cupboard. 'We have seen that she was old and lone- I ly, and we now further see that she was poor. For, mark, the words are 'Mr cup- board.' Not 'one of the cupboards,' or the 'right-band cupboard,' or tbe one above or the one below, or tbe one under tho floor, but just tht cupboard, the one humble little cupboard the widow possessed. And why did she go to the cupboard? Was It to bring forth golden goblets, or glittering precIouB stones or costly apparel, or feasts, or any other attributes of wealth ? It was to get her poor Hog a bone I Not only was I the widow poor, but her dog, the sole prop sf her age, was poor too. We can imagine the scene. The poor dog crouching in tbe I corner, looking wistfully at tbe solitary cup- board and the widow going to that cupboard in hope, in expectation, maybe to open it, although we are not distinctly told that it was not half open or ajar to open It for that poor dog. But when she got there the cupboard was bare, And so tho poor dog had none 'When she got there i' You see, dear bretbern, what perseverance is. You seo tbe beauty of perseverance in doing right, ,he got there. There was no turnings and twistings, no slippings and sliding, no lean ing to tbe right or faltering to the left, With glorious simplicity we are told the got there.' liaVl It ed V 'The cuoboard was bare 1' It was bare 1 1 Ann nnw ven ntr nnn a piinrr rnwRM. There were to be found noither oranges, cheesecakes, nor penny buns, nor ginger- break, nor crackers, nor nuts nor lucifer matches. The cupboard was bare I There was but one, only one solitary cupboard in the whole of that cottage, and that one, the sole bone of the widow, and the glorious loadstar of the poor dog, was bare I Had there been a leg of mutton, a loin pf lamb, a fillet of veal, even an Ice, from Gutti's, the case would have been different, the incident ... . .. . -r. . .. would have been otherwise. But it was bare, my bretheren, bare as a bald head, bare as an Infant born without a caul. Many of you will probably say, with all the pride of worldly sophistry. 'The widow, no doubt, went out and bought the dog a biscuit.' 'Ah, no 1 Far removed from these earthly Ideas, these mundane desires, poor Mother Hubbard, the widow, who many thoughtless worldings would despise, in that she had only one cupboard, perceived or I might even say at once the relentless logic of the situation, and which had enabled her without deviation to reach the barren cup. board. She did not attempt, like the stiff. necked scoffers of this generation, to war against the inevitable ; she did not try, like the so-called man of science, to explain what Bbe did not understand. She said nothing, 'The poor dog had none 1' And then at this point our information ceases. But do we know sufficient ?

And, 0 1 dear friends, keeping in recollection what we have learned this day, let us avoid keeping I dogs that are fond of bones. But brethren, if we do, if Fate has ordained that we should I do any of these things, let us then go as I Mother Hubbard did, straight, without cur- veting or prancing, to our cupooard, empty though it be-let us, like her, accept the In- hu., u i:uUc ; .nu .uuum we, like her, ever be left with a hungry dog.and an empty cupboard, may future chroniclers be able to write also of us In the beautiful worua 01 our text, -Anu so tne poor uog got I none.'

We must remain as yet some little In doubt as to the methtds employed by the old artist to perfect theso miracles of taste. We have, however, the absolute certainty that these auclent maulers were familial with tho diamond, and that their best work was made by using this, the hardest of all sub- stance, as a tool. A splintered fragment of the diamond served as a tcraplng tool, and they were well acquainted with the drill. Prehistoric man worked a drill at tne very commencement of his existence. A phcenl- clan gem a Hon attacking a bull shows how the drill was used. A number or cir- cular depressions are found in the gem, which mark the extremities of tho figures. This was dono not only for the sake of effect, but but'.to show the artist the limit of his work as to depth. After the holes were sunk, the artist united the various portions of his work as to depth. After the holes were sunk, the artist united the various portions of bis work by scratching. Now the use of the diamond point or splinter, bxed in a style or iron socket, allowed a certain flexibility ol hand- ling, which our modern procesfes of gem- engraving do not permit. To-day the work I Is done by means of a minute rotating disk of copper, which is whetted with oir and diamond dust. On the least application of tho substance to be cut to the disk, it is the disk which bites Into the stone. The differ. once In manipulation is, then, that to-day It Is the stone which goes to the tool, and not, as In olden times, the tool to tbe stone. It is more convenient, then, in 187'J, to bring the cart to the horse. It can now be readily understood why, In modern work, time and labor being spaied (the art conception not entering for the present into the subject) why this work of to-day is inferior to th art which is past. It is purely a mechanic-1 al process now, for a rotating disk will no more draw lines which have feeling than will photographing processes paint pictures It has been Btated that we are not entirely acquainted with tbe methods employed by the old glyptic artists. 1 his becomes quite evident from this fact, that their best work seems to have been both cut and polished at one and the same time. To-day we have no tool, no substance, which will accomplish this double feat. Mr. King, dwelling on the diamond point, says 'its extensive use is tbe great distinction between the antique and modern work.'
