desert and headache for dinner. Two
pretty young girls traveling alone.
There is a white-face, flaxen-haired.
Yorkshire girl in a long black velvet
gown with:yards and yards of Span
ish lace wound about her throat. The
sly puss soon won the sympathies of
the gentlemen of the party into when
ready ears she ponied a touching tale
of loneliness, a lover, a cruel parent,
a flight acroSs.the sea, the-uncertain
ties of the long voyage and of friends
awaiting her= at the mines. She
sweetly took = their consolaticin and
advice, with an -artlessness touching
to behold. But - alas " the' poor young
English girl " turned the tables and
proved to be the belot of travelers
and an arrant smuggler besides, and
bade her sympathizing friends good
bye with fifty yards of the best blaek
silk snugly tucked away in the tail
of that velvet gown. -
From Buffalo to Cleveland the
route lies close to low banks lined
with vineyards, orchards and sloping
pastures, comfortable and common'

ships shine like fairy wings.

"can._ you bring me a piece of salt

Now : it was in the year of the big
apple Yield in the land; and the heart
ofthe farmer rejoiced within him.
Forhe said, "of a verity there is
no end to the apples . ; I will build me
nen , cider presses and I will sell Unto
the dishonest dealer of the city, the
ehampagneythat eoineth, - from abroad
that he may label it to suit himself
and sell 'it to the unwary, that we
May takelgreat profit from the un

For it. is- written ; " Ye shall play
it low down .on the pagans of "the
eity,and ye shall spoil the young man
whose head is lighter Ithan.his pock
et book." , •
And his :heart was glad, and was
joyful within him, and he picked up
his big basket and made joyful
noise with his mouth as he get him
unto his favorite apple tree.
And when. he was 'come unto it ;
the voice Of his singing was hushed
and his heart was filled withAree,
an i he Was cast down 'and sad, even
ns a dog which asketh for a tone and
receiveth a brick. •
• For it was so that where there was
one apple on the fruitful branches of
his favorite tree; there were three
boys ; and they were town boys, and
they. skere outside' of all , .the apples
tittre were, and were_ looking for
more. v •
And it'wss so that when they
,held the farmer ; they descended from
the tree, 'and got
.over - the fence in
great haste n - . •
And they mocked the husbandinan
and smote their palms together and
darieed up and down the road before
him, and they cast stones i ut
and smote it, insomuch', that the,
voice of its howlipg: was heard even
unto old Noah •=insler's as thou
goest down by Cy. Ilaukse'n black
smith Shop. , t • -
. And the hushandruan was wroth,
and he cried aloud ; 4 : Would that I
had ye in my , hands _that. I might
neck ye." ,
And the lads laughed him toScorn
and called aloud unto hire, and mock-,
ed, and said one to another, ", Oh,
ain't he got, the gaul!" And 'then
entreated hilt that he would go into
the house and cover himsellup, and
that he would walk amnia the block
and look for Christmas. And with
loud voice they besdught him' that
"he would lie download walk over
. And Ahpulblozm the husbandman
trembled in the fierceness or:his rage,
insomuch that he broke his basket
on a stinp'and he lifted up his voice
and .conversed:, in swear word's,, so
that the lads were not ahleto stand
before him. And they fled down the
road, but Ahpulblozm the husband
man pursued . not after them, for he
was heavy with much corn bread and
fried pork, and his figureiwas even
as the figure of a sperm whale, and
he was not built to run a ft er boys,
who are light of foot; .yea; they are
altogether swifter than arrows' and
stronger than onions.
Now then Ahpulblozm: went 'into
the house, and he held.peace, for this
same thing had happened last year
and the year before that again.
And the husbandman said, ,"Next
tithe I will fix 'em." ' •
And when the Winter was come
a" nd_gone, and thel time of the sing
ing birds was, come again, and the
-ground was Soft; Ahpulhlozm, the
son of Irarratuthe the ;Clodhopper,
said nothing to nobody, but he spent
much time with -his favorite apple
tree, and he pruned - it and 'digged
about it and day by day he watered
its roots. '
And he compounded the water'
wherewith he watered it, from the,-
herbsof the apothecali and from the
roots of the field. • •
For he .stirred • into half a 'barrel
of viaegar bitters, ten pounds of
quassia, two quarts of castor oil, half
,of worm vr nod, hatful of qui n i ne,
some, tincture ofrhubarb, one quart of
tartar emetic. an armful of dogwood!
hark,rhalf a' dOzen " Indian turnips,"
a can of concentratedlye and three
gallons ot sod corn whis ky, whereof
if g man drink one drink of it he will
straightwaylle down and have a fit.
And he 'boiled it all 'in a great iron
kettle, and stirred it up with a hem
lock stick, antitsprinkledin salt and ,
cayenne pepper, and n thbfui;of

And arose early in the 'Morning

And ft was so, that when theitp•
pies . were ripe they were fairer to
look Upon than 'other fruit of the
field.. I
And3hpultdozm, the son of Her
ratut4e commanded his fainily that
they Should '-not t,e,nch so Much as

For be said, "It is a satrifice to the
immortal gods." •
And when i• fair Saturday morn
ing wai come e Ahpulbluzm, the hus
bandman, tied up the dog at the
house, and went by himself and lay ,
down in the grass in the orchard.
For he said, "Of a verity, I will
=give the boys a chance."'
(For he'Fist there was nO Khoo)
of a Saturday ) (
And the .boys came betimes and.
they•climbed gently over the fence
and swarmed up the apple tree as of
And when they saw the fruit that
it wai fairer than any fruit of the
field, they smacked their lips and re
joiced, and said one to another,' . Oh,
golly," and, alas. "Oh, I guess,not!"
and moreover, "Yum Yum 1" -
But it was so that when a boy bad
eaten one bite of it, that he turned
him round about and cried unto his
fellow and said," Of truth I am stab
But they thought he had mocked
them:. and they said, i‘ Go to, thisu
tag a devil."
Andrwhen another ISd had bitten
an awile, he was stricken with, re
morse"and Said unto his fellows:'
Deliver me up while there is yet
timei=tor I am the. man who 'robbed
the Manhattan bank !"
'Ahd they 'marvelled greatly, but,
Abpulblozm the mar velled
the grass of the field into his mouth
that he might not laugh. -
And 51 third 'bby laid hold of an
apple ;and bit :it, and when he gad
craunched his bite only once he cried
aloud, " Bury me close to the school
house!" and he slid down the tree
and 'lsy in. the clover and twisted
himself up and wept,.
And when yet another boy had
plucked an apple and tasted it, 'he
called unto those who were with him,
" Help me home, for I have swallow
ed a Fourth of July."
'And even another boy bit into an
apple and it was so that when he bit,
he let go all hold, and fell upon his
back in the clover, and =gasped, '
pray thee, let notthe medical students
carve up my body." ,
And when yet another lad- bad
bitten an apple, he Came down from
the tree and lay down, by the road
side and sought to die - ,but could not.
And another lad took unto him:
saris large bite, and* cloiab down,
and wentaway into a desert place,
and laid down on the railroad track
that the down express might come
along and. ripple over him. '
And so it was,, that all around the
orchard .'there; were lads who Were
doubled up and who . feared to . look
upon each • other's - face - And.they
ate sand, and prayed the immortal
gads that the awful taste which they
'tasted might . die with them, and not
be visited upon their children's
And wnen night. ;was comethey
got them home, but when meat was
before thein they would not eat it.
For, of verity, they could not taste
the difference between the taffy and
dog-fennel tea.
• And tt, was so that after many days,
when one of the lads _should see an
apple, that he lay . down and had a
fit. •
Ah pulblozm, the son of Hairatu the,
arose up out of the grass an he coin.

And he took, one of the apples

The . hay crop alone of Pennsylvania
is estimated at 130,000,000, sad the ,
corn, wheat and other grains, pota
toes acd tobacco bring the total up
to $111,250,009. This is only the
value of the garnered crops; it does
not:include the $85,570,000 worth of'
live stock , raised hron the farms nor
the numerous minor items which en,

would easily bring the aggregate far
above two hundred millions, a fisnru
