LINES TO A SKELETON.
Behold this ruin I 'Twas a skull,
Once of cthcrlul spirit full
This narrow seat was life's retreat,
This space was thought's mysterious seat.
What beauteous vision filled the spot I
What dreams of pleasure long forgot I
Nor hope, nor joy, nor love nor fear
Have left one trace of record here.
Beneath this mouldering ennopy
Once shone the bright nnd busy eye;
But start not nt the dismul void ;
If social love that eye employed
If with no lawless lire it gleamed,
But through tho dew of kindness beamed
That eye (shall be forever bright
When stars and sun are sunk In night.
Within this hollow cavern hung
The ready, swift, und tuneful tongue.
If falsehood's honey Is disdained,
And where it could not praise was chained j
If bold in virtue's cause it spoke,
Yet gentle concord never broke,
That silent tongue shall plead for thee
When timo unveils eternity.
Sny, did those lingers delve the mine,
Or wilh the envied rubies shine ?
To hew the rock or wear the ge4,
Can little now avail to thetn ;
But if the page of truth they sought,
Or comfort to the mourner brought,
These hands a richer meed shall claim
Than all that wa.t on wealth or fame.
Avails it not whether baro or shod,
These feet the paths of duty trod,
If from tho halls of ease they lied,
To svek alllictiou's hnmblc shed;
If grandeur's guilty bribe they spurned,
And home to virtue's cot returned,'
These feet with angels' wings shall vie,
And tread the palace of the sky.

The woman cried and wanted to stay with

The Dutchman's Insurance Policy.
A GOOD ptory is told of a German
named Schmidt, who had taken the
recnution to insure the life of his wife
for $5,000, and his stable for $000; be-
leving that tho former might die and the
itter bo burnt, and he could not cet
along well without some compensation for
the loss. 13oth policies had been taken
from the same agent.
In a few months after tho stable had
been insured it caught fire and was de
stroyed. Schmidt quietly notified the
agent, and hinted to him that he would
expect the $000 at the earliest possible
The agent at once sent a builder to as
certain the coft of erecting a new stable
of the same dimensions, having learned
that the stablo hud been insurod for
more than it was worth. The builder re
ported that he could replace tho stable
with new material for $ )00 : but unfortu
nately there was an ord n in!e preventing
the erection ot frame buildings the old
stable having been of wood, lie was
then asked to estimate the cost of a brick
stable and reported the amount at $7ii0.
1 ho agent then notified Schmidt that he
would build him a new brick stable in
place of tho old frame, but Schmidt be
came very indignant at the proposition
1 not understand dis inshurance busi
ness. 1 pay you for nine hundred tollar
and ven my shtable burn down you make
me a new one. 1 not vant a new shtable
vant my nine hundred tollar."
The agent reasoned with Schmidt, but
all to no purpose. When tho stable was
about finished Schmidt went to consult
a lawyer, thinking that he could still get
the amount of the policy, besides having
a new stable. The lawyer, however, in
formed him that the company had a
right to make good the loss by building
ii new stable, and expressed surprise that
he should talk of bringing a suit against
" Uut," said Schmidt, " I inshure for
for nine hundred tollar, and dis feller put
up deui sli table lor seven hundred and
fifty 1 not uiidersthaiid dis inshurance
Finding that ho could not compel pay
ment bv law, Schmidt determined to get
out of the "inshurance business," alto
gether. Calling upon the agent he
" Mr. Agent, I want you to sthop dem
inshurance on my fraw, I no pay auy
more monisli dat way. I not understand
dis inshurance business."

Out on tho Pacific Uailroad, tho other
day, a Kickapoo Indian saw a locomotive
coming down the track toward him at the
rate of forty miles an hour, lie thought
it was an imported breed of buffalo, and
ho was anxious to secure it so ns to take
the prize at the annual exhibition of the
Kickapoo Agricultural Society. So ho
fastened one end of his lasso to his waist-
belt, and when tho engine got near enough
he threw tho uoose nicely over the smoke
stack. Perhaps it is. not necessary, but
we may as well relate that tho locomotive
did not stop. J. ho engineer and fireman
witnessed tho most successful attempt at
the flying trapeze, made by any lvickapoo
Indian upon the plains, siuco the 1st of
January. There was an aboriginal
funeral at tho next station when tho
engine arrived. Tho gravo was uot largo
for they only buried a small pieco of
copper-colored meat tied to a string and
cucloscd in a sardine box.

John Abbott to sign the pledge in " his

" I pledge myself to drink no more iu

Few believed he could keep it; but at
the end of the year, he again appeared nt
a temperance meeting without once hav

" Are you going to sign again 1" asked
" Yes, if I can do it in my own way,"
replied he, and accordingly he wrote :
I sign this pledge for nine hundred
and ninety-nine years; and if I live till
that time I intend to takeout a life lease."
A few days after ho called upou the
tavern-keeper, who welcomed him back
to his old haunt.
" O ! landlord," said he, ns if in pain,
" I have such a lump on my side."
" J hut s because you ve stopped drink

Sing It Any How.
A story is told of an old
who nad tno most unbounded faitli in
Watts's hymn-book. He was fond of
saying that no could never onon to any
page without boding an appropriate hymn.
A mischievous son of Ins thought it would
be a good joke to test bis" father's faith ;
so he took an old song and pasted it over
a hymn, on one of the pages ot the book
so nicely that it could not easily be dctect-
d. At cliurcli, on ftabbath morning, the
minister happened to opert at that very
page, and commenced to read :
" Old Grimes is dead."
There was a sensation iu the audience.
He looked at the choir and they looked at
him; but such was his faith in Watts's
hymns that he undertook it again, com
mencing with the sanio line There was
another sensation in the audience.

Being on business in Pittsburg, pur
chasing goods, I was returning home ou
one of our river packets. Having taken
passage, I was assigned to a room for the
night. I took possession of it, put some
of my baggage in, locked the door, threw
the key, us it was burdensome to carry,
in on the upper buuk and went to anoth
er part of the boat. A stranger in tho
meantime had been put along with me,
and when we were both about to turn in
for tho night, I left hini to retire alone.
Shortly after I went in, and as usual I
knelt down and committed myself and
friends at home to "Our Father's care."
Then I laid myself down and slept until
morning without a fear. When we arose
in tho morning, the stranger said to me :
" Is it not strange how we can be made to
feel secure? I have souio things about
me that I don't wish any one to know
about; but when you came to bed last
night, and before getting in I saw you
kneel down and say your prayers, I felt
all right and slept soundly without any
fear ut all." His words filled niy heart

Wo have tho most gorgeous .upholstery

since the world was made, tho most splen

great things we need is, to counterbalance
this external tendency by coming back
a little to the inward. And not only
this, but wo niust remember that if we
