When with some soap a salesman bold
Conies in your place to there unfold
His samples, and proceeds to say:
" Thi equals, sir, in every way
The Ivonv, 'tis made in fact

"l'is just as white, indeed the man
Who makes this soap by perfect plan;
Has mado the Ivorv o'er and o'er
For l'roctcr it Gamble heretofore,
liesides, this soap brings to. the till
More profit than the Ivorv will."
He means, to use by such a game,
Your reputation and good name
A fraud or counterfeit to sell
Of what is known and proven well.
This mean3 As rp will never go
On its own n; r.t t.ist or slow;
And yon. hkr hi.iv, tlie truth must toss,
Clean civet bo.rn, or sell at loss, land
It means still more, that throughout the
The lvor.v Soap's in great demand.
For none chase with imitations, frail
An article that has no sale.
And who for counterfeit will pay
The piice of genuine goods to-dav?
Then whence can the advantage flow
Or how can you "more profit" know?,
A WORD OF WARNING.
There are many white soaps. each represented to be "just as good as the' Ivory' ;"
they ARE NOT, but like all counterfeits, lack the peculiar and remarkable .qualities of

Reply to all who do intend
To use you thus to gain their end:
"When you for your own soap create,
Upon its worth demand as great
As Ivory Soap this day can claim,
I'll buy, should trade require the same ;
Iitit have no time, I tell you true,
To introduce your soap for you,
And customers perhaps offend
With goods 1 fear to rccommuul."
Don't buy the soap that salesmen say:
" Is like the Ivory every way,"
For grocers can this tale unfold
Of every hundred cakes they sold
un scvcnty-ltve a loss ttiey bore,
Or che it ne'er had left their store.

into the bright little keeping room,
where Pardon had spread a neatly

Indeed, indeed, Pardon she's as kind

Pardon laughed hysterically.
"I'm getting as hard and bitter as a

somo day wo can return Mrs. Mcrritt's

Fanny burst into tears.
"Old Pinky!" sho oirolaimed. "Is

Pardon stamped her pretty, ill-shod

"Father need never know, Fanny.
It is as Squire Ettiug says, tho land is
all that is loft of our poor mother's

$100. Tho Squiro thinks ho can safe

bonuet that afternoon and went over
to the Merritt farm. Joel Merritt was
just driving through the big gates
with a load of wood.
"I'm so sorry," said Joel, courteously
lifting his cap. "Mother has gone
over to a quilting bee at Mrs. Dikes'.

A Great Uattle

system. The detrou of impure blood
strives to gain victory over the consti
tution, to ruin health, to drag victims

weapon with which to defend one's

MiFi'MNTOWN, Feb. 18. Ex-Senator
Wright returned to this lown to-night
with Principal Sherwood, of tho Mc-
llistei ville Orphans' School, having
spent Home time in investigating the
symptoms of hallucination and insanity
shown by the boys.
Alter a careful and strategic investi
gation the Kx-aenator is convinced
that tho boys are shamming, and Prin-
ojpal Sherwood says that tho Senator
claims to havo trapped two of the
worst cases into confessing that the
whole thing was a scheme and that tho
boys have beou effecting and feigning
tho various manifestations that luvo
ptizzlod tho doctors.
H,x-benator Wright went t i tho
school with tho fixed idea that tiio boys
wero tooling tho doctors, and be diter
mined to tbruw them nff their guard
and seo what tho result would be.
With this 111 view, he took one of
tho boys, who still had all tho nervous
symptoms, out for a walk. As they
valked along hu engaged tho bov in
continuous conversation diverting his
miud as far as po ssible from his mala
dy and trying to draw him out when
hp least suspected it. To further this
eud bo pretended to slip and fell
against the boy, throwing him down in
tho snow, and then expressed regrets
at thu accident, the boy in hia haste to
recover bimselt, acted in a most ration
Thon ho carried 011 in a sportive
manuer with tbu bov. but suddenlv
turned on him and paid: "Now. bov
toll mo tho truth. You'ie shamming,
aro you not? Now don't lie!'
Pha ioy at first denied it. but after
a legular seigo of accusations ho finally
broko down and confessed ha had been
shamming, and said tho whole
tiling was a scheme of tho boys.
Ex Senator AVright then took tho
Siinea boy, aged 1 2, who was or,o of
tho worBt cases, and worked with hira.
Ho talked to iho boy for several hours
before he could get him to acknowledge
that ho was hhamming.

was about to civu it up, concluding
that Simos was really crazy, but finally
