But to those acquainted with COI.
Bolden the. matter was - very plain.
lle had been through life an inveter
ate jester ; his humor must needs .
tinge his will. Noting with. a,favor
able eye. young Bonnifield'a atten
tions-to Barbara—as yet in their first
bud—and priding himself on his sa
gacity, he had, in.a fit of jollity, re
vokedall former testaments, and in
dited this ;: elmekling-to think that
should he die ere things were settled,
how delightfully, under these arbi
trary conditions, lie had arranged for
his !' dear young folks," And sud
denly he had died, leaving this stir--
prise: , •
•Barbara understood it ; unfortu
nately Hubert Bonnifield demurred.
Ilisdelicaeywas to be the iirst.stum
bling-block. , There was no joy in
his countenance when he- heard 'the
startling news; he appeared to fath
om but one point.
"It seems - very ridiculous, Mr.
tireatoiex," he said, ".that'l should,
oiler to forego all claim to Miss Bar
bara Holden's estates, but thisis, in
my view, the proper course. Please
manage it as informally as possible,
else ive make ii matter of importance
out of a arce."
• Hugh Greatorex was not greatly

"but Holden did not know him as

lie never•will, cvithout some advance
i on her part, something to satisfy his
nice soul. Undoubtedly she will
misconiprehend him ; and so the
chances are we shall see a genuine
love-match nipped in the bud. 'But
plirhaps afters:settlement, in time—
Stranger thins have chanced." • .
And areatorkx bustled off
to Barbara with the news.
N-ot an over-pleasant mission for
the little lawyer who kneW this ease
so well. For, as Hubert Bonnilield
had ignored the will's -first condition,
-he must necessarily do the same; he
must smother sug,f_".!stions, at - least

" I understand, .M„r. Greatorex,"
she spoke quietly. " Surely Le should
not be blamed." •
" My dear Miss Barbara," he plead

• In vain. Life had gone hard with

STRANOZ SPECTACLF. PAVENTED AT
TUE BURNINO Or QUINCY
The Quincy (Ill) lVlig says: "A
curious and thrilling spectacle was
witnessed Sunday evening by persons
who were early at the scene of the
burning Of M'llade's • ice house, on
the bay. It was caused by the escape
of probably hundreds of snakes which
seemed• to wriggle .- and crawl and
i ound directly out of-the flames, and
t , then rim for the bay, creating' a
CO ' tinuous splash, splash. splash, as
one\ after another of the reptiles
'went headlong , into the water. The
whole •ountry for a mile around was
light as day. The snakes.seemed to
\ come frem every nook and corner, of
the buildig,*and, writhing in agony

and seemed to search in the agony
they - experienced in Coming through
the fire. The mum : ber Of them' ap
peared to be endless;until the whole
structure was so fully consumed that
no more could escape froth it, if any
there were. Great rattlesnakes, bow
snakes, moccasins, gartersnakes,
watersn akes of every possible descrip
tion and age were huddled aad lu;stl:
ed together as.they came forth, 'ap
parently borne by the flames. The*
creephig things were horrible to . lfe
hold. No one dared to attempt to
kill them after they: had passed suc
cessfully through such- -a -furnace..
Wild with rage and tossing venom
into the fire, which seemed only-to
in - crease in volume, they coiled upon
the ground with arched necks, ready
to strike the • foe that approached,
them. Some of them even seemed
to stand upon the edge Of the ice
house, as if bidding' defiance to 'the
devouring elements, and to lick up
the flames with their tongues before
giving up 'what had been their home.
It is declared upon good authority
that "some of ;these reptiles were ten
feet. in length. with bodies of enor
mous size, which made large swaths
on the earth when they crawled, and
as to their nuniber , no one could give
a more accurate idea than that there
were hundereds. One .Of the largest
of a bright green and - gold color,
which was rendered beautifully brill
iant bythefirelight, appeared through
the side of the Louse, which was in
full blaze, bearing in its month two
of its young: and scales fell from.
its body like hail stones as it hukried
away, uttering tones of torture as
it proceeded. . Sonic of the snakes
took refuge in a large,pile of lumber
near the ice house, underneath which
several- dead carcasses were fouild,
when the lumber was removed to a
place of safety. The house was built
with thin boards. 'by which a vacant
space was made in the siding, crea
ting'an air chamber; and it is suppos
ed that the snakes had' taken
possession of this for a home. 'The
tramps who endeavored to stay in
the ice house Sunday night probably
discovered some of the snakes, and
attempted to smoke them out, but
the eillert resulted in the destruction
of the building.
IT would be Well for the poor s man
to ponder and think well -before
blaming the government for hard
times. Lastweek there was a riot
in Canada, and the cry was bread or
blood. Remember that Canada is
not governed by the United States,
and still they arc having hard times.
Why is it that England can buy her
cotton in. this country, take it across
the ocean, manufacture it into fab
rics, and sell them again to our pea
pie cheaper than.they can, be manu
factured here ?
.Simply because the
poor people here would scorn to work
for what the poor people of England
would: • They don't know how much
more degraded the poor.are in other
countries than tnerare in this. The
poor. people in this country live far
better than those in' England. How
would you' like to live in Italy where
the common laborer gets, what would
amount to twenty-five cents a day
and the skilled workman- only re
ceives seventy-five, cents per day
for his labor? It is so in all coun

. are poor because
the government is corrupt and is run

\. DEBT. -
N • .
In these days \ of debt-making and
debt-suffering, not - be out. or
. to speak \on that . subject.
Among the many resolutions formed
in reference to business, there is no
better resolve than to\pay as you go.
The causes for debt-niaking are nu
merous. It may be tie result of
thoughtlessness. Oft times debts are,
made through a deisre - of\ show or
ostentation—living in a style \ beyond
one's means. Persons of a generous
nature are prone to do for Okhers,
especially for . their own family, more
than their circumstances admit.
Some families are naturally extrava
gant, and desire to , pOisess whatever \
they see thht:pleases them; they do
not hank easily the art of self-denial,
and before they are aware debts em
barrass them. And .we fear there are .
those who incur debt withoutany in
tention of meeting their obligations,
for when the facts are made known
there is no present or future pros;
pect of payment ; this is but little.
better than stealing?. , The man who
expends all he gels and more too,
running in _debt to every one who
will trust him, is on his way...to the
drinking-saloon or prison.
Whatever the causes may be, as a
general rule -debts can be avoided,
and the sad records of failure and the .
heavy burdens of the debtor - whiai
oppress them would not have to be
endured. If you . would be free froth
the chains of the creditor, above all
firmly resolVe to live within your
means, however limited 'they may be ;
make no promises whiCh you have not
a reasonable certainty of keeping.
;When you want that for which you
Cannot pay at the time, wait until
yon • can, - unless the prospect.for-fu
ture payment- is certain, and when
yeniNdo purchase the thing desired
you Will .enjoy it all th more for
Debt, 'in some degree resembles
death. It„,ha.s some rays of. light
which embilge from its dark garb, and
so bas death., Oft times it May - be a
great. litivr-ntage to die—dying is
ealled paying the debt
. of nature:
The corisciJusness of having to meet
death prompts uS\ to prepare for its
coming. And so it, is with debt ; it
sometimes bas a stirring, stimulating
effect upon those who \ are conscious
of its existent . There are some in
dividuals so c 7 . tituted that they
lay the foundatio of their • financial
prosperity by gettin r ,ain debt.' - They
see the dark pall df debt-Payments
to be made, and they\learn lessons Of
economy which theyever 'Would
have learned ; they s pp spending
money for that which isUseless and
may' he injurious. \ • \
But the great mass of \mankind,
should'avoid debt as they w \ ould a
famine or the bite of - a serpent. It
ruins nearly as many households \ and
destroys .as many characters gin;
'temperance. A. person must have
character to be able to get in debt.
It is a low position to be too poor toy:
get in debt. It - is a relief,,a most
comforting and cheering sensation,
after having been in debt - to get free i
from the creditor, ,so that you can
say that no man .has a- claim against
you. , If yell are in debt resolve to,
get out as soon as poSsible„.but avoup
borroWing of -one to _pay another.
Pay the washer-woman, the dress,
maker, pay the merchant, the- editor,
There are many honest, true men
td-day who cannot , pay their debts.
They were Unfortunate in . hushteis ;
parties owinc , them have failed to,
pay, and bankruptcy stares them in
the face. The financial support has
given away. The little debt which
at first was as small as a grain of
seed has multiplied a hundred .fold,
or like the rolling snow-ball, has
gathered weight and increased-at CV..
ery.turn, and still it grows; like the
hyfira in the fable, as often as' you
strike otrone head two'shoot up in
its place. As the weary pilgrim on
the way 'to the rest beyond looks up
td. Heaven with confidence, saying,
". There shall be no more death, -nei
ther sorrow nor crying, neither shall
'there be any more pain," so may that
person who is struggling with dell
and knows not which way to turn
look up to Heaven with some feeling !
of relief and' comfort, and exclaim,
there will be no debt there, . 1
If you are cast overboard into the
sea of • financial disaster, put. forth
every energy to swim for the, shore ;-
if you do not succeed, you will have
the consolation of knowing that you
did your best, that you tried to-do
justly, that you maintained your in
tegrity: It is not a disgrace to, be
poor. Our Savior who was once rich
became poor, and when called upon
to pay, tax to the Roman Govern
ment had nothing to pay, but wrought
a miracle; obtaining money from the
mouth of &fish. You cannot work
miracles or's,take money from the
fish's mouth, but you can save your
character and honor God by doing
*hat you can.' Y . ota can learn to live
on short - rations.':, • Wear the worn,
