Handy had been a poor boy when the
giant took him into service. He was a poor
boy from the day of his birth, because he
soon became an orphan, and an aunt of his
took charge ol him until he grew up. Dur
ing the time Handy lived with his aunt he
had a very hard road to travel, because his
aunt had a boy of her own. Sow, it hap
pened that Handy was a fine, healthy and j
good-looking child, but his cousin a poor,
miserable mortal. He was all right in
health and strength, but he was surly, ill
tempered and domineering in the extreme.
This, however, was his mother's fault, be
cause from the very day Hilborn, that was
the boy's name, had been born, his mother
,tried everything in the world to spoil her
boy. Everbody had to give way to his will,
and whatever he wanted had to be done at
the sacrifice of everything and everybody.
It is quite natural that Handy suffered
more on this account than anybody else.
Sometimes he had Hilborn's toys, then he
was sitting in his chair, then he had his ap

wanted something else. Handy had to give
in or else expect to be punished by his aunt.
Butas ttie orphan boy grew older he resented
the mean manner iu which he was constant
ly imposed upon by his aunt and his consin.
It was at last nothing but continual warfare
between Handy and his aunt and cousin.
He therefore resolved to leave his home
iilrogetber and seek a place somewhere
( Thus it was that Handy had arrived at
, Hibornus' castle one day asking for a situa
tion as servant. The big giant was stand
tag on bis doorstep fixing a few tiles that
fed fallen awayfrom the roof of his. castle.
Bandy was astonished when he saw that
L All man, who conld look over the roof of the
Swiigbest house as he might gaze over the
fence around his aunt's garden. For a
moment he was afraid, and he would have
run away but the giant had seen him.
"Don't be afraid, my boy," Hibornus said
with a voice that sounded like the rolling
thunder in the distant clonds, and whose
echos seemed to shake the mountains to
their very foundations. "You heed not fear
that T wonld hurt a little fellow like you,
but what do you want and how did you get
Handy told the giant in a trembling voice
that he was looking for a place as a servant,
"but the big fellow could not hear what he
said because his ears were so high up in the
air, so he quietly reached down, and taking
Handy in his hand he lifted him on to his
shoulder. "Now talk to me." he said,'and
I khall be able to hear you better."
The young fellow repeated his story, and
Hibornus listened very attetrely.
"All right," answered the giant, "I will
make you my private secretary. Toucan
write, I suppose. Well.so can I, but I can't
get a penholder and pen big enough to suit
me. I tried to write with a pitchfork the
other day, but I made such big letters that
it took 1,500 sheets of paper to write all I
had to say, and I did not say very much
after all. So that is a bargain. I will pav
yon well, and you shall have a good place
Handy was very much pleased, and he
asked the giant to let him down again on
the ground. "I think you had better stay
where you are, because'l can hear better
what you say, and you are just as comfort
able up there as anywhere else. "When I
want vou to do some writing for me I will
get you a nice desk up there. I think there
is just room enough to put it along side my
neck up to my ears. Don't be afraid, my
boy; I will take care that you do not fall, I
x Handy did not say another word. He
looked around from the giant's shoulder and
heconld see lor miles and miles around the
country. The trees seemed as small as
matches to him, cows looked like calves,
calves like dogs, dogs like mice and mice he
could not see at all. However, he felt very
conifortable,and he soon got used to his new
abode. He had plenty of room on the
.giant's shonlder. He remained there all
day, constantly talking to Hibornus, and
relating him his experiences with his aunt
and his consin.
"They treated you very badly, my bov,
and I am very sorry you did not come to me
"When the evening came Hibornus took
Handy down from his lofty position and
placed him on the floor; then he showed
t him where he could find plenty to eat and
drink, and he also indicated to him his
bedroom. The private secretarv found
, everything in the proper place." He en
iojedhis food very much, because he was
hungry, and also because evervthing tatted
, . Tery delicious. But when be got to his
tbedroom the boy looked around in great
amazement. The bed was enormously
large, and when Handy crept under the
clothes he imagined himself in a hay loft.
However, he was Tery tired and he soon
went to sleep.
The next morning he was early aroused
by the giant, whose heavy footsteps sounded
through the house like the thuds of a steam
hammer in a rolling mill.
"I have an important piece of work to do
for you to-day, my boy," said Hibornus
when he met Handy a few minutes later,
"and I shall see whether I can trust and
confide in you. Hind you, it you are as
good and faithful as I think you are, I will
make you a rich and powerful man, but if
you play me false and betray me," and as
the giant said that his voice became terrible
"you willbesorrv foritfortherestof yonr
"Tell mewhatyouwant metodo," quietly
"Well, listen. I am in love with Ermel
dine, the daughter of Ermel, tbe giant of
Ermeleliff. This giant is a very mighty
and proud man. He is very rich, and the

her she will have every confidence in yon,

charger in three days from the time you are
there, at the foot of Ermeleliff.' " If she asks
you why I want to meet her tell herT want
her to run away with me. Now go and do
your errand well."
Handy went away. He did not like the
task before him, because he did not know
exactly how he could fulfill it, and he was
afraid that he would never get back alive.
True, the giant had given him a sword,
which he said would make him invincible
to any foe, but somehow or other he did
not think that he would do much good
On the third day after he left Hibornus
castle he met with a whole army of dwarfs.
These little men numbered by the thousand,
and they covered the entire country for
miles around. Handy had often heard of
dwarfs and he did not like to be among
them, bnt be lelt his sword at his side, and
that made him courageous.
"Bahl" he said to himself. "I have got
along with a giant, and I will not be afraid
of these little mites."
Thns he encouraged himself, and he
marched bravely into the crowd. Not very
long afterward the little men came up to
him and asked him where he was going.
"1 am going to Ermelcliff Castle," he re
plied. "Well, then," said one of the dwarfs,
who, by his dress, looked like the King of
the Lilliputian army, "will you take a mes
sage lor us to Ermel, the giant?"
"Yes; what is the message?"
"Tell Ermel that we have come to fight
him until he restores to us the treasure of
gold he stole from us."
"I will." replied Handy, and he went
away. "When he got to the' castle Ermel
was already awaiting him, "because he had
noticed him coming in the distance. Handy
delivered his message, and the giant with
drew to consult with his soldiers, the other
gtants. "While Ermel was away. Handy
quickly ran to Ermeldine and told her what
Hibornus had said to him. The giant's
daughter was almost as tall as her father,
but she was nevertheless very beautiful.
She told Handy to return to her lover and
assure him that she would be ready to fol
low him at any time.
By this time Ermel came back.
"Go and tell those little fellows down in
the vailev that I am coming down to them
and that I will kill every one of them who
does not run away."
Handy departed and when he informed
the dwaris of the giant's answer they got
mad and stamped the ground with their
little feet as angrily as possible.
"We will show himl "We will show
him!" they shouted.
"Look here," said Handy whom a sud
den thought bad 'struck just then. "You
make me your general and I will lead you
to victory. I have a sword here that slays
anyone who comes within my reach and I
can help you very much."
"All right," replied the dwarfs.
"Listen to me then," continued Handy,
"These giants are so tall that they cannot
reach down to the ground very well. Now,
all you have to do is to lie flat on the ground
and as the giants come along you must all
the time shoot your arrows at their legs
nntil every one of them falls down. "When I
that is done I shall kill them.
The little men thought that was a good
idea, and they followed Handy's instruction
to the letter. Soon the battle commenced,
and as Handy had prophesied the giants
could not touch the dwarfs. So it hap
pened that Ermel and his whole army were
annihilated. Then all went to the castle,
and Ermeldine followed Handy to
Hibornus. The latter was greatly pleased
when he saw his lady love. A grand
weddii . took place very soon, and there
was rejuicing such as the world never saw
Not long after the grateful dwarfs came
to Hiljrnus Castle and asked for Handy.
"When he came out tfie little fellows offered
him the crown and throne of their king
dom, which he gladly accepted. Handy
lived after that for many years as happy
and contented as a nightingale in the woods.
TRANSMISSION OP TERROR.
A Wondcrfnl Story ora Flock of Geese Told
by a Foreign Paper.
A correspondent of the Revue Scientifiqut
vouches for the following story: For about
20 years he was in the habit of visiting two
or three times each year a farm where was
kept a flock of geese, numbering from 30 to
35 in the early part of the winter, and in the
spring four or five, left for breeding pur
poses; these also generally being killed a
few months later, after the new broods had
attained their growth.
In the month of July, 1862, on a feast
day, the farmer and his men being absent,
the geese were forgotten, and were attacked
by dogs, which killed the most of them.
The next evening at twilight the farmer
thought they must have been attacked a
second time. He found them flying about
in their pen, much frightened, but the dogs
were nowhere to be seen. The next day this
terror reappeared at the same hour, as it did
on the following day and from that time on.
i The correspondent of the Revue had for
gotten this fact, when, ten vears later, he
chanced to be on the farm one evening and
heard the cackling of the apparently fright
ened geese. "When he asked for an explana
tion, he was told tbatthis had been kept up
from the time they had been attacked by the
dogs, that there had been no repetition ot
the attack, and that tbe flock had been
renewed in the meantime at least three
times. If this story is well authenticated,
we have a case ot the transmission of terror
to the third generation in a family of geese.

Works of Art.
THE HARP, BANJO, GUITAR AND TIOLIN
rwnrrrxs pob the DisrXTcn.l
The piano and the billiard table have had
to concede something ot their sufficiency.
The piano especially has always been a par
ticularly arrogant article of furniture. At
this moment it is overawing hundreds of
thousands of homes, from the Atlantic to
the gulf. It follows closely the Bible and
the traditional jug of whisky in the march
of civilization. It has pushed its polished
surfaces to the habitable limits of the iron
tier, it is amusing in cabins where space is
precious, and mankind sleep three in a bed,
to see this mounted oblong block, consum
ing half the room, and putting to blush the
admiring visitor by impertinently' showing
him his unshorn face in its shining side.
But when the decorative fever is abroad
the piano has had to fall into line. It is
not so much itself as it is part of something
else. And all the glitter and beautiful
decoration that is lavished upon it cannot
entirely hide the fact that the proud piano
has suffered humiliation.
But up to a certain point the piano still
holds its own. It cannot exist but under
certain conditions. As a mounted or up
right rectangle or triangle with its apex
knocked off its lines are clumsy and ugly.
At the same time they must be accepted.
There have been various attempts to get
around these. A Belgian has invented a
clavier harp to take its place. This is a
harp lying on its long straight line above a
box or ivory keys.
It is really a beautiful piece of fnrniture
and accepts decoration handsomely, bnt it is
not and cannot be the good working instru
ment that is the piano. There is an instance
also of a grand piano made in the last cen
tury in which the harp-like works are up
right and mounted above the keyboard with
the covers opening like wings. The effect
is very fine. Such a piano, ornamented in
the prevailing mode, wonld be one of the
most superb pieces of furniture that could
be placed in a room, and it is a pity that
some one who can afford the experiment
will not allow it to be made. If successful,
it would inaugurate a new era in pianos, as
everybody recognizes their impractisability
as furniture under their present shapes.
The all-conqueringarchitect is the man who
has subdned the piano. In the beautiful
music rooms which are a feature of the fine
houses he prescribes the outward semblance
of the movables which go into it. As these
rooms are light and elegant in character
the whole tendency has been to refine
as much as possible to the lines of the piano,
to render it lighter in effect, and by decora
tion to call away attention from its'intracta
ble features. To this end light woods are
very generally substituted for rosewood and
mahogany, except where the fitting of the
room demands dark wood. The light woods
are the lustrous satin wood, certain varieties
of maples, and in more serious cases oak.
Some of tbe veneers are of wonderful
beauty. The Chickeringft have a burl, a
tawny wood suggesting a cross between a
tiger and a tortoise-shell cat, Which comes
from the Caucasus and is supposed to be a
diseased French walnut Anotherandmore
beantiful veneer is the cam in a, an incident
of Soute American importation supposed
also to be a diseased growth. This fell into
the hands of Cottier & Co., and has been ex
hausted in the cases of some of these mar
velous new pianos. It is several tones
darker than satin wood, but of equal beauty
of grain and gives a relief to painted decora
tion that the lighter veneer does not give.
"Where the veneer is not used in its own
heauty, gold leaf lacquered and enamels are
useJ. In Mrs. WhitelawBeid's music room
the architects, McKun, "Wade and "White,
have incased the superb Steinway grand in
a case of white enamel traced with delicate
lines of gilt, which is as exquisite in effect
as if it was an ivory piano box.
The first of these decorated pianos was
made for the Newport villa of iliss Cath
arine Wolf. It was overlaid with the
beautiful camina wood and decorated with
painted panels. Cecilia and Orpheus and
two scenes from Milton's Fenseroso and
Allegro. As it was intended to stand out
in the room, the back was an elaborate com
position of perforated carving about a large
panel containing allegorical representations
of music and dancing. These paintings
were special orders from London, and, as
works of art, gave immense distinction to
The Steinway piano decorated by Mrs.
Alma Tdema for Mr. Marquand.is a later
and more notable instance, but has been too
frequently described to require more notice
than a recall as the supremest limit to
which decoration has yet gone. One of the
most superb pianos yet produced has been a
full Chickering grand for Mrs. Thomas
Scott, of Philadelphia. It is incased in
camina wood, and over the top painted, as
if carelessly strewn by hand, are peonies
and roses. The inside is overlaid with gold,
and on the under side of the cover is paint
ed a large idyllic landscape, so that when
the cover is raised the inside of the piano
rivals the beauty of the decoration without
A Steinway piano something in kind is
owned by Mrs. Sydney Dillon Bipley, who
was formerly Miss Nellie Elheney, and the
daughter of" the generous art patron. This
is encased in camina wood. The ontside is
festooned in painted wreaths. In front the
center panel reveals three musicians seated
fiddling on a curved bench, and on each side
are oval panels containing painted nymphs.
Description cannot fully render the effect
without insisting on the beauty of the soft
tints of rose, green and blue relieved against
and in harmony with the rich mottled yel
lows of the camina veneer.
A FAVOBITE FASHION
is to entwine amid all this decoration a le
gend, or the legend is made to furnish a
large part of the decoration. This is usually
chosen by the owner. Colonel John Hay,
tor example, in his "Washington house has a
fine Steinway in camina veneer, adorned
with painted wreaths and ribbons, and a
Greek legend in the characters of the orig
inal, which are of themselves an uniqne
decoration. A specimen piano of this kind
is owned by Cottier. It is a Chickering
baby grand, overlaid with gold lacquer.
The sides are festooned with wreaths united
by medallion portraits of the great compos
ers, uq iue vuvcnu as u ucttutuui renuer-
ing of Corot's "Dance of Nymphs," and so
soft it seems like an illumination. Sur
rounding this painting is the following

Nothing conld be more resplendent than
these gold lacquered pianos when mingled
with these soft tints of rose, blue and green.
Mr. Frederick Vanderbilt has one which
has the further distinction of being the
Steinway Concert Grand that Thalberg
played upon when in thi country.
One of the finest pianos this country has
produced was a Steinway grand, made for
Sir Donald Smith, our neighbor in Canada.
This of satin wood in polish rivaling
marble, and in luster, satin. It is designed
for an Italian room, therefore is an oblong, j
inlaid panel witn nowing decoration ot
ivory,' ebony and pearl. Otherwise it is
carved.. The sides are dividedinto panels.

as it is beautiful in design. .
The legs of Sir Donald Smith's piano in
dicate the effort that is now made to Jghen
the effect of the piano. These are divided
and united by an arch Itself a pretty mimio
architectural feature. On other pianos they
are divided into clusters ot columns. A
Chickering baby grand piano intended for
Mr. Sandford is of satin wood with
INLAID FESTOONS OF PEAEL
and the legs here are small clustered col
umns of ebony. A, still further refinement
appears in a piano which is to be sent to a
Jjr. Sanderson in England. This is a Stein
way grand, in this case of mahogany which
Cottiers is treating like an old Sheraton
spinet, the front support being divided into
three tapering legs. This is all part of a
movement to which the piano has suc
cumbed, and greatly to its gain.
As I have said the present fashion re
quires pianos of light wood, or treated in
harmony with the present light mode of in
terior decoration, except where the room de
mands different treatment The point isthe
room prescribes the piano. In Constantino
ple, for example, Byzantine styles prevail.
The Sultan of Turkey had a Steinway up
right prepared for his use or some one of the
ladies ot his family. This was an ebony
upright with Byzantine ornament inlaid in
gilt Another upright grand is now on the
point of going to him tor some other or more
favored member of his family, constructed
in the same way of ebony and gilt, but much
more elaborately inlaid, the case being a
mass of gilt inlay after Byzantine designs.
The saloon of the "Alva," in "W. K. Van
derbilt's steam yacht,is in first empirestyle;
accordingly the Steinway upright is of ma
hogany with applied ornament in brass, the
round pillars being elaborately festooned
with brass wreaths. On the other hand in
the Japanese ropm of Mrs. Kennedy, a
Steinway upright of ebony has perforated
and solidly carved panels divided as the
Japanese treat their panels, and as a sep
arate and center panel a cloissoure placque,
the borders elsewhere being of inlays of
are very severe in style, and usually in oval.
Such a one designed by Mr. Bruce Price
for a Mr. Pratt, of Ohio, has an oblong up
per panel of perforated carving in which
the foliation and cherubs headsare equal to,
and in feeling resemble old Italian carving.
But this is tbe only ornament of the piano.
One of the most remarkable pianos pro
duced has been a Steinway upright for Mr.
Norman B. Beam, of Chicago, shaped like a
Turkish pagoda and evidently intended for
a Turkish room. It is of satin wood, inlaid
and relieved with colors.
But space fails to tell of the numerous
and costly instruments which have been
specially designed for particular rooms. In
Mrs. James B. Flood's fine San Francisco
music room the satin wood grand piano is
superb, much in the same way as that of
Sir Donald Smith, Italian in character, the
luxurious, acanthus leaf being used to mark
off the recessed form of the keyboard. Mr.
Potter Palmer, of Chicago, one of whose
habits is to buy pianos, is the owner of sev
eral of these magnificent new creations.
Bnt the piano Is not th; only instrument
now in the decorative line. As it happens,
the most decorative of all instruments, the
harp, has not been restored to favor in
private life. The harp compares well.
Lovely woman is never so picturesque as
embracing its graceful form. Miss Maud
Morgan, in Greek drapery and filleted beside
her harp is
A FEAST FOB THE EYES,
rather than the ears. But to accomplish the
harp is too much for the amateur. More
over it spoils the fingers, and the manicure
would forbid this as in the days of long
nails she prohibited the piano. But in the
same proposition the banjo, gnitar and the
mandolin are inferior. For these one need
only make a pretty pretense, and nothing
more readily combines inlo a picturesque
arrangement than one of these stringed in
struments placed with artful art against
some drapery. The mandolin, the most
musically unsatisfactory, but the most dec
orative in form, is in highest feather. The
mandolins come from Naples, and connois
searshiphas in few cases demanded any-
tning more man its graceful Dut essential
form. An exceptional instance is a Jersey
woman who has a $500 mandolin overlaid
with tortoise shell, inlaid with pearl and
her monogram in gold. The mandolin is
played with a tortoise shell tooth, and to
spare the sounding board, which would
otherwise be scratched through, a drugget,
so to say, of tortoise shell always covers the
place This is one of the principal fields of
inlay, and in the $500 instruments the de
sign was a butterfly in myriad small bits of
The guitar, so lorig neglected, has for the
same reason regained favor. "With careless
art it arrests the eye and makes one of those
centers of attraction that it is now tbe fash
ion to create. Moreover, with a ribbon of
becoming hue, it may be strung jewel-like
idly about the neck if one can strum a little
and greatly assist the human tableau. If
one has fortunately a nice one, no other'in
strument can furnish so perfect an accom
paniment Accordingly many beautiful
guitars answer to the renewed demand.
Even the banjo responds in silver mount
ings and pearl inlays. It ismuch affected
by'yonnger girls, who find it compares well
with youth and good humor and gay satin
ribbons. But not alone young girls. One
of the most beautiful banjos is owned by Mr.
Sylvester Hilton, for which the pegs of
ivory were specially carved.

There is one charge brought against the
churches now-a-days which deserves serious
consideration. While acknowledging that
Christianity in this current year of grace
counts more adherents, is more ably offi
cered, controls and expends more money, and
is more Influentially enthroned than at any1
previous date, it is distinctly affirmed that all
this is due to a lowering of the moral tone
among Christians. The boundary line between
religion and the world Is hazy, indeterminate
so it is said. It is a "debatable ground," like
the border betwixt England and Scotland in
the middle ages such. is the assertion. Critics
assure us that multitudes nnite with tbe
churches to-day from social, business, selfish
motives. It is perceived that membership in
them confers certain secular advantages. They
are an arena of speculation a pious Wall
This indictment has been framed in verse by
the Quaker poet, Whittier:
"Bnt the living faith of the settlers old
A dead profession their children hold;
To the lust of office and tbe greed of trade
a stepping-stone is tne aitar made.
Tbe church, to place and power the door,
Rebukes the sin ot tbe world no more,
JN or sees its Lord in the homeless poor."
In proof, we are painted to the worldly
minded, grasping and dishonest chnrch mem
bers, and to ambitions, self-seeking and place
hunting ministers. Tbe latter are more eager
for quantity than quality in their converts;
tbe former are in a conspiracy to forget eter
nity in time this is tbe charge. The clergy
are bold in denouncing unpopular sins and un
Influential sinners. 8uch denunciations even
the most fashionable psws tolerate and
Eatronize. Bnt there is a tacit understanding
etween pastor and people that current sins
and reputable sinners are to be let severely
alone. It is safe to bombard the ancient Phari
sees they lived s long ago and so far away.
If, in a moment of absent-mindedness, tbe

The tares and tbe wheat have always grown

But the exceptions are so numerous and
ostentations that they attract atten

is the voice of pablio opinion) sentence them
to the pillory of universal contempt. At the
same time let us discriminate. And when we
recall tbe tbousands of pastors and the hun

it in mind that this is the result of the better

A Question of Veracity.
A certain orator, addressing himself to the
Athenians, said: "I call all tbe gods and god
desses to witness the truth of what I shall say.' '
The Athenians, often abased by his impudent
lies, interrupted him by exclaiming: "And we
call all the gods and goddesses to witness that
we will not oelieve you."
Tho Trial or Christ.
Tbe International Sunday school lesson for
to-day relates to the trial of Jesus by the coun
cil of the Jews. It should be taught and studied
with awe. As Canon Luckock remarks: "We
should take oil the Bhoes from our feet when
we stand on this holy ground, and witness the
trial of Him before whose tribunal we shall all
stand at last, with reversed positions." This
judicial procedure has been thoroughly an
alyzed by Prof. Greenleaf. of Harvard, in his
remarKable treatise nn "The Trial of Jesus."
He says: "Throughout the whole courso of
tho trial, the rules of tbe Jewish law of
procedure were grossly violated, and the
accused was deprived of rights belonging even
to tbe meanest citizens. He was arrested in
the night, bound as a malefactor, beaten before
His arraignment, and struck in open court dur
ing tbe trial. He was tried on a least day and
before sunrise. He was compelled to criminate
himself, and this under an oath of solemn
judicial adjuration; and He was sentenced on
tbe same day of tbe conviction. In all these
particulars the law was wholly disregarded."
The King' Parable.
A King of Hungary, who was sad and pen
sive, was once rallied by his gay and courtier
like brother, who asked the cause of his
"gloom."' On replying that he felt himself a
great sinner and unready to appear before God
his brother made a jest of it. The King made
no reply; but in the dead of night (according
to th e custom in case of persons appointed to
immediate death), he sent an executioner to
sound a trumpet before his brother's door. On
hearing it and seeing tbe messenger of death,
he sprang into the King's presence, imploring
to be told whorein he had offended. "Alas,
brother, you have never offended me. But if
the sight of my executioner is so dreadful to
you, shall not I, who havo greatly offended.

The Two-Wine Theory.
Here are a few sentences, quoted from the
Christian Intelligencer, the organ of the Re
formed Church, which we indorse and' com
mend: In a recent pamphlet in favor of 'what
Is called "Tho Two-Wine Theory" Jt is said that
'It seems especially unfortunate fur the Chris
tian church that clergymen possessing such an
extremely superficial knowledge of the wine
question as a whole or of its Biblical, historical,
scientific and medical aspects, and ot well es
tablished facts, as is manifested in the writings
of Rev. Urs. Jewett, Ten Ejck and other advo
cates ot fermented wine as a communion wine,
should write upon this great practical ques
tion, which so Intimately Involves the welfare
of the church and our race." There Is a mis
fortune in the case, but it lies in just the other
direction. It is tbat of tbo small knot of well
meaning men who, on tbis point, set themselves
against tbe conclusions of scholars, travelers
and experts of all classes and creeds who main
tain tbat in Sonpture and out of It wine is wine,
I. e., a product of vinous fermentation. If It be
anything else then that differentia Is appropri
ately Btated in the title. Otherwise tbe estab
lished use of tbe word remains. Nor Is it men

flie Growth of Social Reform.
Practical reformers are content ta make
hasto slowly. Unlike the dog in the fable, wbo,
in crossing a stream, snapped at the imaginary
bone mirrored in tho water and so dropped the
real bone out of his month, they do not sacri
fice an actual good for a dream. It is impossi
ble to extemporize the millennium; it must be
grown toward and into. Yet there are men
who In their enthusiasm for a new Idea, expect
to reach it at a j amp. They mistake an ideal
for a reform bill, and seeing the beautiful
vision in the clouds sketch it, propose it as a
legislative enactment, and expect to realize the
millennium when the law is passed. We live in
America, not in Utopia. This is a government
of public opinion, not of theorists. A statute
in tbis country is not worth tbe paper it is Writ
ten upon unless behind it is a friendly and ex
ecutive public sentiment. The recollection of
tbis would prevent much hasty and crude leg
islation, and save callow reformers no little
cbargin. Human nature cannot be made
virtuous by legal machinery. Law can repress
it cannot reform. Here is the value of re
ligion; it regenerates. He who pats off the old
man and pats on the new man, gets "a new
motive and so lives a new life. Let social re

Hanging in a barn in Old Pineville, three
miles from here, Bays a Pineville, Ky.r spe

marvelous freak of nature ever heard of or
seen. Its existence, however, is vouched for
by James P. "Whallen and Joseph'Leahy,
It is well known that when encumbers
are first cut from the vine there is -a piece of
the stem which exudes or bleeds. A promi
nent citizen of Old Pineville some time ago,
named Jared Gibson, cut his hand, and this
juice got Into this cut and his hand com
menced to inflame, and an eruption similar
to erysipelas made its appearance and ex
tended up his arm, and finally spread over
his whole body. Strange to say, there was
no pain attending these eru'ptions of erysipe
las, and he continued to gather and pack
the cucumbers and prepare them for pick
ling. To the great surprise o f everybody, these
little pimples assumed Che appearance and
form of small cucumbers, and continued to
grow. Although Gibson kept well and
hearty, be was compelled to stop work and
take to his bed. Tbe doctors and quacks
from around here Tisited him. One pre
scribed one thing and one another. One
wished to bleed hirr,; one wanted to cnt the
cucumbers off; another said not to let him
have any water rind they would dry up;
another said stick a hole in each encumber
and they trould die und a new skin form;
another wished to wrap him np in a mam
moth poultice of barnyard manure and"
draw them all to one head; another said
they ought to 'oe scattered. All the doctors
had a different remedy, but all disagreed, so
there was som e hope that the patient would
get well. Brit the small encumbers grew
into big one?', and his whole body was cov
ered with them from head to foot, and they
commenced to ripen and turn yellow and
hang down, and the man looked like a huge
bunch of bananas.
"When they got ripe they began to shrivel
up and dry, and so did tbe man. His sap
was all gone, and he died. The doctors pro
cured the consent of bis widow to permit an
autopsy to be made for the benefit of science,
and they cut him open, and to their amaze

BILE POISONED BLOOD.
Nearly every one is occasionally troubled
with bilious attacks, more especially in tbe
spring months, after tbe system has been sur
feited with hearty food during the winter. Tbe
action of the Liver is interfered with, causing
an overflow of bile into tbe blood. The blood
carries this bile into every part of the system,
causing yellow skin, yellow eyes, liver spots,
etc., and often serious cases of bilious fever
originate from this bile poisoned blood. A
few doses of Burdock Blood Bitters, taken on
appearance of bilious symptoms, will remove
them and protect the system from a probable
