Select Story.
Tohn l-'ay wasleaviug the breakfast table.
He laid a roll of bills besiile his wife's
'The fifty dollars, Atiuic, I promised you
for your new diess.'
'Kilty! Then you have really made it
fifty f What a good John 1 I shall be able
to tflve entiui;h out of it to buy Aunt Mnrin
a real nice New Year's present. There nro
very irood cloaks, shaggy and warm, marked
down to $10 and $12 at Morton & liner's,
and I am distresed Sunday nfier Sunday to
see her walk into ohttrch in that old shawl.
I could draw thn pattern of it with my eyes
shut, nnd know that nothing but perversity
keeps it Irom breaking away on her poor
sharp shoulders.'
'Well, do as you dense; only make tho
most you can of tho money. Fifty dollars
do not grow on every tush in these times,
and I should hardly have felt able to give it
to you now but that Morton has been look
ing at one of our steam heaters for his store
though some parties down in Hartford of
fered him one at a discount. So buy the
cloak of him by nil means, if you get
And John struggled into his three-years
old overcoat and hurried away.
Little Mr. Fay turned the bills over nnd
over in her hand. She had scarcely heard
her husband'. last words. It was enough
that he could nllbrd to give her the money
and that it was hers to spend. He was her
conscience in regard to money matters. With
the intricacies ot business she had nothing
to do. Should she run around to Mrs.
Jupe's tit once nnd talk it over, and fiud out
exactly how to send to New York fur sam
ples of dress doods ?
TheJupes were stylish peoplo who had
recently removed into the neighborhood,
having bought the very large lawn and the
Very Binall cottage with a stable in the rear,
which gave an air of elegance to the street
of the pretty New England town where the
Fays lived. Retweeu Mrs. Jupe and little
Mrs. Fay the most, intimate relations had
been established. They ran back and forth
at all hours, a blind gate having been dis
covered, at the foot ot Mrs. Fay's tiny flow
er garden, which opened directly upon Mrs.
Jupe's side lawn.
The latter had already advised in regard
to the new dress. 'You will never think of
buying it here,' she had said. 'Morton &
lirier's dress goods are so common I Every
body in town dresses the same like mourn
ers at a funeral I Why not run down to New
York and buy something made up? You
would save it in your dressmaker's bill.'
Run down to New York I Mrs. Fay re
garded a visit to the metropolis as the event
of a lifetime to be ardently desired, but
scarcely to be hoped for. And as for a dress
maker, one day for such a functionary, for
the purpose of baiting nnd 'trying on,' with
three or four more from Susan Jane, who
went out for seventy-live cents and was
thankful to get that in these hard times-
was the limit of her desires.
And so Mrs. Fay had gone home filled
with a desire to do this. To send to New
York, to the envy of her less well informed
neighbors ! To appear in a dress unlike any
thing displayed in the town I She was not
ordinarily a vain woman, but Mrs, Fay's
ambition took fire at this spark of sugges
tion. Hut John's countenance assumed a
doubtful expression wheu the plan was
spread out before him.
'I don't know about that,'he said, slowly,
'Do as you would like to be done by, is
my motto, and how should I like to have
everybody In town to run oft" to Haitford or
New ork to buy the goods I offer lor sale.
Patronize home Institutions, Annie ; spend
your money where vou make it, and help to
build up your own town, 1 say. Why, the
country is going to ruin for the same reason
Nothing in America will do for people, un
less the maker Is shrewd enough to brand it
with a foreign mark. We spend all our
time and strength in gathering dollars to be
sent out of the country. And what do we
get for them? A lot of French fripperies
nnd manufactured articles which need only
to stand Bide by side with our own to show
their inferiority.'
'Yes, John, but the dress I' Exports and
imports are matters to be settled by graver
heads, or to settle themselves.
'Iluy at Morton & lirier's.' They trade
with me, and I should like to turn my inon
ey Into their hendi,'
'Hut their goodi are so 'common.' John.
And wo all dress alike -like mutes at a fu
neral,' 'Like what?' John Fay burst Into a loud
laugh, 'You aro a dear little womau, Annie
but you never originated that remark. I
don't believe I like the style,' ho added, nf.
ter n pause. 'But do ns you please, dear.'
It was hard to say 'no' to his little wife.
'At least you can buy the cloak at Mor
ton A. IJrlfr'a j and be sure and make the
money go as far as you can.'
'I will, John j It shall go as far as New
York I' she repllfd, with n happy laugh,
throwing her arms around his neck and glv
ng mm an enthusiatio hug.
She wrote her letter to New York nt Mrs.
Jupo's dictation, nnd tho samples came in
due time.
John turned them over quizzically.
'Couldn't you Judgo better of the color nnd
quality to see them in a whole piece, rather
than In such a scrap as this ?'
'O, what a silly John 1 Of course not :
when I can examino them at my leisure
now, with no saucy clerk to snatch them out
of my hands or talk me into buying what 1
don't want nt till.'
A long hour was spent In this Inspec
'Do do you think it had better bo mixed
goods or pis I ii?'
John was good natured. He laid down
his ncwpaper to raise the bits of cloth again
in his great hands. 'Doyou call that mixed?:
singling out a scrap all knobs and long.loose
hairs, and vicing with Joeph's coat in col
ors, the latest fashion of woven ugliness.
l es, to be sure.
'Well, then, dear, I shouM say, let u
have It plain.'
So she chose a soft, warm basket cloth in
dull maroon. Six yard, fight dollars I Hut
it was double width, and these new goods
were expensive. Tho prices ran ns high as
five dollars a yard ; three was moderation.
And there would be enough for a long
sacrjue, and then last consideration of a
prudent mind it would 'make over' ad
mirably. Then the silk for this was to bo a hand
some suit Mrs. Jupe had said that Bilks
were to lie got at almost any price now. Anil
not to be mean or buy a poor quality, Mrs.
l ay hail fixed her price at n dollar and a
half a yard.
Hut a scrap at two dollars just matched
her cloth. And as most of the samples
ranged at prices even higher, with an im
petuosity which characterized the move
ments of the small woman who mildly rul
ed the Fay family, she decided upon this.
Seven yards no, eight it was well to have
a piece left, nnd there should- be a bonnet
to match. Eight it must be. he ser.t her
order in haste and then waited the result in
excitement which held in it more and more
of repentance as the days went by.
I.arly in the afternoon oithe third, an ex
press wagon, a man nnd an enormous book
appeared at her door. She ran to open it.
She took the precious parcel which bore her
name and placed carefully within the sanc
tities of the parlor, while the man was fum
bling for the bill.
'Thirty-four dollars, ma'am.'
She had the exact amount in her hand.
She had had the exact rmount within reach
for the last two days.
' rite your name just there.' And Mrs.
Fay wrote her name where the purple and
black finger pointed grimly in characters a
gootl deal' like the trembling ones with
which she had written. 'Yes dear John,'
two years before, in reply to a certain letter
which uecd not be further mentioned
'And a dollar for tho express.'
'I thought it wrs fifty cents.'
'lloth ways, ma'am, you know, C. 0. D.'
No, she did not know, not at that moment
certainly j but she slipped a fifty-cent piece
slyly back into her pocket and paid hi in the
ilollar demanded.
She did not open the parcel at once. She
sat down to do a sum in mental arithmetic.
Thirty-five dollars from $50 left $15; and
there were the linings and trimmings, the
dressmaker and Susan Janes to bo provided
for. And Aunt Maria's cloak 1 She had
entirely forgotten the cloak 1 There was no
Impatience in the fingers that untied the
strings as she prepared to inspect the dress.
She had lost her enthusiasm over it al
Horror of horrors I Could that be her
silk ? as a broad ray of sunlight struck upon
it. It was by no means of the same shade
as the dress. Could the dealers have made
a mistake ? Hut no ; she compared a scrap
of the sample which sho had chosen and a
bit of the sample which she had withheld.
It was the same. Was it possible that it
could appear so different when seen in the
Hut there was no help for it now ; and
with that reflection the last ray of pleasure
in her new purchase vanished from her
mind. Not even John's commendation could
enliven her,' Why, you're pretty as a picture,1
said lie, the same night, wheu she had
twisted the soft woolen stuft" about her fig
ure and stood waiting under tho gaslight for
his inspection. The silk she had prudently
and thankfully banished from sight, Tho
dull maroon hue had brightened to a rich
crimson under the light.
'And did the money hold out ?'
'Y-es.' Hut the reply came faintly, and
Mrs. Jupe running in the next morning,
found her friend poring over the 'supple
raeut' to a fashion psper, her smooth fore
head drawn into two dreadful wrinkles.
while she studied with despairing eyes this
sheet of lines and angles, bicycles and in
sano parallelograms, hopelessly coufused
and inextricably entangled.
'They are patterns I' said Mrs. Fay, as
though she would have added, 'Could you
everbeliovo it?' 'I thought perhaps I might
cut my dress myself.'
flnndness, child I Did you ever do such
a thing V
'No ; but'
'They dou't begin with a handsome suit,
however. Do you want to spoil It to ruin
the whole dress, beside wasting the material
and the money you have speut for it ?'
The last was an argument, and Mrs. Fay
laid by her sheet of hieroglyphics with a
sigh, and prepared to listen to reason, as
Mrs. Jupe called it, by arranging to take
the latter's dressmaker off her hands for one
day, which Mrs. Jupe desired to Bpend out
of town. Perhaps she could make up for
this expense by cutting otT three of Susan
Jane a days.
Tho day and the dressmaker came.
'It i a good heavy piece of silk,' said the
latter, testiug It between thumb nnd fore'
It was. It weighed liko load upon Mrs.
Fay'e mind. Tho dressmaker laid it ar.alnst
the woolen goods, opened her lips, then
closed them again, prudently j but Mrs.
Fy saw tho movement. No j It did not
match. Had not Mrs. Jupe already remark
ed It? And was not the maroon turned to
purple by the proximity of tho silk, as any
ono could see ?
'I should have thought that you would
have bought American silk. They usually
ofler it at Morton & Hrler's to make up with
these heavy goods. It wears so much better
and costs less, you know, by n good deal ;
being so much wider, too, It cuts to better
'It came from New York,' said poor.crest
fallen Mrs. Fay. Hut there was no pride In

Susan Janes, as the latter laid by her work
at the end of her third day.
'Do you think you cau ?' Thtro was dis
appointment in Susan's faded eyes. 'That'
blind stitch is hard to do nicely if ono is not
used to"it.'
PoorSuan ! Even ono more day would
be something. It would earn the price of n
New "York dinner. Work was not easily
found in these days, and sho had depended
upon at least a week here.
'I am sorry ; and I know it isn't easy to
do.' The tea J were in Mrs. Fav'a eves.
Was she not worn out already ? 'But
indeed, Susan. I must do it.'
So Suan folded tho waist neatly and laid
it with a lingering hand besido the skirt on

worn cloak and went away.
When the dress was at last finished and
put nit for John's inspection, the night be
fore New Year, not even the warm bright
bun could bring a trace of color to the pale,
worn face of its wearer. But John did not
notice it.
'Yes,' he said absently; 'it is very pretty

has cot me more than I can well afford.'
A shiver ran all the way down little Mrs.

frightened at the expression of his wife's

'I have got her I have made her ,' Mrs.
Fay began hysterically, '0 ; John I have

'A ginger jar I 'No wonder Fay stared.
'Don't laugh.' And Mrs. Fay proceeded
to further astonish her husband by bursting
into tears. 'It is decorated, you know, and
and looks like Kioto, Mrs. Jupo says. I

'I see how it is,' said kind John, who
knew more than shn dreamed. Ho gather

the frightful sobs, 'We have learned a good
lesson, though a hard one, haven't we little

The next day John Fay took his old over
coat quietly to tho tailor's and had it re
bound, countermanding his order for a new
one. and Aunt .Maria had ber new cloak af

the street, who gave him the cold should

was that it was not too late at all, The
truth had been only halt told. The Hart
ford order had been threatened, not carried
out, and the steam heaters were bought of
John Fay himself.
Susan Jane was surprised by an invitation
to a dinner on New Year's day. Of course
she came, and she contrived to take a few
needful stitches upon the new dress. That
'blind stitch had been indeed very trying to
the unskilled fingers. And the dinner was
a happy affair John'even proposing a toast
at its conclusion :
'Our neighbors let'us do unto others as

wcquoto this account ol an Interesting
phase of mining life!
All this excitement nnd influx of masses
of men and the consequent Irregular
squatlng upon unoccupied ground, began
at once to produce discord and a fever of
speculation In real estate. A certain cor
poration claimed to own the whole town
.site tinder a patent from the government,
and tried to exact payment from every ten
ant ; but the Illegality of this was asserted,
and pending decision, everybody not only
laughed at the company but proceeded to
buy and sell original squatter-claims as
though no better title was ever In existence
a supposition, probably truo at that tlmo.
Tcwn-lots roe from nothing to fabulous
prices In a day, and fortunes were made and
opportunities neglected accordingly.
Next came a period of 'jumping' that Is,
getling;forcihle or fraudulent possession of
property. Men would call with a paper
having a legal appeaiince and politely In
form some man occupying the cabin they
coveted that they had.bought the properly
from the owner.
'You know, pard,' they would remark, af
fably, 'that you just settled down here 'cau.e

'That's all right, no offense,' the shaggy,
headed cot'ager would reply, quietly; 'but I
reckon ef the owner or anybody else wants
this ycre cabin they've got to take it, and
they've got to hold over me, nnd get up
Ight 'arly in the morula,' too.' aud he
lays a loving hand on tho hilt of his six
shooter, while the would-be jumpers anathe
matize their way out of the door.
Tbcrtwere, however, clear cases of len-
ncy of land where no title was held, and
ero tiro occupant, if unruly, was likelv to
find his .cabin timbers faMiier'about ills pars

oids wero a matter of couno in all these
ittle public and private t ansactions in real

or beaten half to death ; but public opinion
and the numerous witnesses quickly and
oudly decided the right of tho case, and the
coroner's jury was very likely to formu'ato
the popi'lar verdict. Truth to Bay.the voxjiop

The views of the l'ouitnj World on this
subject are expressed as follows: A certain
writer discredits the claim that pure-bred
fowls aro better flesh and egg producers
than common stock. While admitting that
they do usually furnish more meat and egga
than are furnished by the farmer's flock, he
thinks this is due to superior care and feed-
ng. He says that a person who pays two
or three dollars for eggs, or a higher price
for fowls, will be very apt to give them cx
tra care
I here is, no doubt, much truth In the
saying that 'ihe breed is in the feed,' but it
is only the statement of a half truth. Good
feeding and care will compel any flock of
Howls to do their best; but, after all, the
charactertistlc differences ot the varieties
remain, and cannot be changed by feeding.
these dlllerences are, in many cases, consti
tutional; that" is, by a long course of selec
tion and local influences, certain traits have
become permanently, '''xcd. The blood of
certain varieties is very strong and will show
itself for generations in each successive
cross. The Game cock will transmit his
game qualities, his proud carriage and close
ness of feathering; the Leghorn his spright
ly disposition and wonderful productiveness;
the Asiatic indoleut habits and tendency to
lay on flesh and fat ; all " these
being marked features of the breeds men
tioned. Now, feeding will not aflect these
distinctive tendencies at least not to any
extent. They wero formed by climate in
fluences, operating for thousands of years,
aided by along process of selection, some
times natural nnd sometimes guided by
man. In late years we have taken in hand
the several families of domestic fowls, and
by careful selection and breeding have ex
aggerated, as it were, their peculiar traits,
until they have become veiy strongly mark
ed. To say, therefore, that the average
dunghill fowl will lay as many eggs as a
well-bred Leghorn, or will produce as much
flesh as a Brahma will do in eight or nine
months, it to affirm what a fair trial will
show to be false.
Flour is peculiarly sensitive to the atmos
pheric influences, hence it should never be
stored In a room with sour llquids,nor where
onions or fish or kept, nor any article that
taiuts the air of tho room lu which It is
stored. Any smell perceptible to the sense
will bo absorbed by flour. Avoid damp eel

The Elmlra l'ite l'rest gives an account
of the heroic action of a youth who was in
atle ndance nt the lato Centennial celebra
tion which took place there. It says! On
Thursday, the 28lh of August, tho Ulng
hamton Hatteryunder Capt. Olmstead, ar
rived here for the Centennial. They went
at once to the field to tako the guns In po
sition for the next day's work. Tho spot
selected was about blf way up tho hill, di
rectly hack of the camp of the Prauklln
GiiBrds, and ou the brow of a steep descent.
It was a tug, even with four horses, to move
the heavy guns and cairsons up the hill; but
this was done at length, under direction of
Harry 0. Olmshead, the sixteen-years-old
son ofCaptaln Olmshead. Oa the brow of I
the declivity they halted, and took olT the
horses, intending to turn,tho pieces around,
but one was too near tho edge, and in an
Instant the heavy gun, with cahsion and all
attached, star'rd down tho hMl, Now it
appears that young Olmstead had beard, on
his way up, that the tents of tho Franklin
Quards were filled with ladies and children,
and here was the cannon charging straight
for that campl Not an instant was to be
lost. Tho young hero looked almost cer
tain death in the face, and deliberately
sprang on the tongue of the piece, endeav
oring to turn the terrible charge of the gun
away from the tents. Down, down It thun
deled, witli the boy clinging to the pole,
and doing his utmost to plunge it into the
ground. Farter and faster it tore down
the hill, but o one siuV of the tents. The
boy had succeeded, but at n heavy cost, for,
before the eyes ol'lhn breathless spectators,
ho was thrown violently olf, while the gun
brought up way down the hill, after demol
ishing several fating places and booths.
lender hands raised the lad and ho was
carried to tho camp he had saved. It was
found that no bones were broken, wonder
ful to fay, but he was terribly jarred and
bruised, and his frort teeth knocked out.
When they tried to find nut his name he re
fused to give isnyin, 'It might get into the
papers, and I have u mother at home who
would be worried.'
All Ihe day of the celebration helay In a
house near by, where Geo, Sherman went
and praised his heroic deed. To his father
he siid : 'I knew there were women and
children in those teti's, and I knew that if I
I did not try to save them I would not dare
to 1 1 ink you in tho face, sol jumped on. and
I would do so again.' He was moved on
strelul'er to Hitighainlnu aud is doing well,
aod he may list satisfied that in the roll of
heroic and sell sacrificing deeds in this
woild's vcord he won't come last.
A remarkable cave has been discovered
on the larm of David Samuels, 10 miles from
La Cross, Minnesota, The cave is SO feet
long, 13 feet wide, and about 8 feet high.
Aoovo the quarry and, which has evidently
drifted in and covered the floor to the depth
of from threo to six feet, upon the walls, aro
very rude carvings representing men, arms,
animals and implements, and some appear
o be hieroglyphics. One picture represents
men with bows and arrows shooting animals,
three buffaloes nnd one labbit. Another
epresents three animals which if large must
have been like the hippopotamus ; another
appears to represent a mastodon ; on anoth
er picture a moose is quite plainly delineat
ed. There are eight representations that are
canoes much carved, or hammocks which
tney more resemble, une sketch ol a man
is veiy plain ; the figure wears a kind of
chaplet or crown and was probably chief of
his tribe or clan. T icre are many fragments
of pictures where tho rock had decomposed.
The rock is a very coarse soft white sand
stone. On one side of the cave is a space of
about two feet high and three in lengtl
made in the rock. Above are the fragments
of pictures aud below aro lower fragments,
showing that they were made when the rock
was entire. Fiom the depth to which de
compositions reached in this dry and dark
cavern the inscriptions must be quite an
cieut. If the carving mentioned represents
the mastodon tho work must have been by
mound builders. The accumulated sand
need" to bo removed to get a full view, and
possibly human remains may be found. The
entrance to the cavo has evidently been cov
ered by a land slide there being let. only a
small hole where traps have been set for
coons. The large number of these animals
which were caught led to the belief that tho
space Inhabited by them must be large and
investigation led to the discovery of the
cave. Over the entrance, since the land
slide, a poplar 18 inches in diameter has
grown, which shows conclusively that the
cave has not been occupied by human beings
lor more than a century.
