And by my side delight to stay Nobody! Who gets for me the easy chair, ' Spreads out the papers with such care. And lays my Uppers ready there T Nobody t When plunged In deep and dire distress. When anxious cares my heart oppress. Who hlspeis hopes of happiness? Nobody I When sicklies comes and sorrow twain. And grief distracts tny fevered brain. W bo sympathizes with my pain T Nobody ! But I'm resolved, to help me fate To charge at once my single state. At Hj lien's altar I will mat 8. mebody ! ONE OF THE CITY'S 0WT There were ructions in ths counting houae of Tattersou & DewhursL One or two junior clerks had received ts more or less well-deserved wigging' and there was a general feeling of worse to follow. At last a small office-boy entered tbe clerk's office, and said, in a shrill voice: ' "Mr. Redbolt is to go to the governor at once." There was a mischievous grin on the young gentleman's face, as if he knew what was coming, and moat of the others, delighted at their own escape, chuckled, like many people do, when some one elite is In trouble. Joe lied bolt turned just a shade pater when bis name was called out, as if be, too, anticipated serious trouble; but he set his lips and stiffened his back, like a man who is going to make the best of a bad job. "Good-by, Reddle, dear!" said some body, with an unpleasant sneer, "If the governor gives you a raise, don't forget to stand drinks!" "Reddie looks worried," murmured tbe cashier. "Perhaps she has refused him, after all!" remarked another. Mr. Red bolt made no answer to tbe chaff, but strode briskly across the room. A moment later he was In the pri vate office. Young Mr. Dewhurst, who had man aged the business since the death of his father, gave him a furtive look as be entered and then turned hurriedly to bundle of correspondence by his side and selected a letter with an air of malicious satisfaction. The two men formed an odd con trast. They were of about the same age 2S or perhaps 30 but it required no great Insight to perceive tbe differ ence in their characters. Red bolt was tall, straight-built, and frank looking; bis principal was small, insignificant, and obviously one of Nature's sneaks. One could imagine Redbolt being foolish, but neter cowardly; one eould Imagine Mr. Dwhurst being sly, but i never generous. The interview was unusual, there seemed to be something. In the back ground about which neither man spoke. Mr. Dewhurst was clearly master of the situation, and resolved to use his pow er; his managing clerk looked self reliant, but perfectly respectful and polite. The ball was opened by Mr. Dew hurst unfolding a cantankerous com plaint from an unimportant customer. It was the merest trifle, and quite ua worthy of the occasion. Nevertheless Joe Redbolt was by no means surprised at the tone adopted. For some time past tbe smallest opportunities had been seized for fault finding, and be knew by instinct that the climax had been reached. "How do you account far this blun der?" said Mr. Dewhurnt suspiciously. His clerk gave a simple, straight forward explanation, which to a reas onable matt, would have been suffi cient. Buf. Mr. Dewhnrst was swt n a reasonable humor. "It appears to me then, that you are not in any way to blame, Mr. Red bolt?" he said cynically. "I think not," "You never make a mistake?" 4Not very often." 44 Who is to blame, then?" There was a moment's silence, and the two men looked into fetch other's eyes. "You are, sir," sad Rid bolt respect fully. "I acted under your instruc tions," This apppared to give the unworthy little tyrant his opportunity. "You are more than half imperti nent!" he said roughly.. "I give you my word that I don't Intend to be so," said Redbolt, with perfect good temper. "Perhaps not; but I'm tired of it. You forget your proper position, and bave crossed my will in several ways." Mr. Redbolt colored rather painfully, and his principal coutiuued, with smile of spiteful triumph: "You understand what I allude to?" The clerk bowed slightly. "Then I think you had better look around for another p-isition." "Shall we calculate the month from last Monday?" asked Joe Redbolt, in a perfectly even, matter-of-fact voice. "Eh, yes;" said Mr. Dewhurst "But I won't ask you to continue your work here." With that he pushed across the table a little pile of coins, which had been counted out already, clearly showing that he intended from the first to make use of tbe opportunity. For ttit frst time Joe Redbolt looked angry. It was adding insult to Injury to send him away at a moment's no tice, as if he had disgraced himself. It was tbe more outrageous because he was a' distant relation of the Dew hursts by blood. ' The two youog men had been for a short time at school together, and Redbolt bad worked his way up by sheer ability, under old Mr. Dewhurst's eye to a responsible posi tion. Naturally, they knew the same peo ple, and, to some extent, visited the same houses; and it was in this way tbat.Dewbuia'.'s inherent jealousy had ripened into positive rancor for that there was a member of the fair sex at erset ESTABLISHED 1827. the bottom of it Is almost obvious. The innocent cause of the trouble, little dreaming of the mischief she wan creating, had thoroughly enjoyed the rivalryjof the twojmen, as every daught er of live is bound to do, and she had not made it quite clear which of them was to be favored, which is certainly a woman's privilege. But Joe Redbolt was generally be lieved to be the lucky mn, and Dew hurst had vented his anmanly spite by a thousand annoyances in the office. However, in love as in war, it is the unexpected that often happens. Joe Redbolt proposed, and was refused point blattk. Now most men when they see a dan gerous rival put out of court, bury their animosity and even become gen erous. But this was not the ca.e with Fred DewhurxL Petty annoyances devel oped rapidly iuto daily iusults, until the morning, as we bave seen, he had found an excuse to cut his former schoolfellow adrift. - II. Joe Redbolt picked up the pile of coins, counted them deliberately, and put them in his pocket. "Now, Fred Dewhurst," he said, huskily, "we are no longer master and man, so that I can say what I think." Dewhnrst looked rather alarmed, and drew a small silver bell near to his side. "Oh, don't be frightened," said Joe, with a smile of amusement. "I am not going to thr&h! It wouldn't 19 fair to hit a man your sizo!" Mr. Dewhurst tried to sneer, but only looked mightily relieved. "I want to tell yea what I think of you," said Joe. "Go on," said Dewhurst with a grin. "Seeing that you've had the worst of it all through, I suppose I mustn' mind a few spiteful words!" "I want to tell you that you're the meanest cad I've met, and if that poor girl marries you I'm sorry for her!" "In fact, you're so sorry," said Dew hurst, "that you'd even marry her yourself. Capital! And now you've said enough, I'll wish you good morn ing." - With a mighty effort of self-restraint, Joe pulled himielf together, and resist ing the impulse to knock him down, swung out of the room. Ho had lost everything the girl he loved, and the m-aaa of earning his living. He was alone in the world, with no prospect but that of com mencing life agalu in some counting house, and then suddenly he remem bered. Only two nights before he bad attended drill at the headquarters of his volunteer corjs. The men had been asked which of them wished to join the C. I. V. for the front. He thought of tlK glow trust had liuf nt through his veins, how he had longed to offer himself, and had only been prevented by his feeling of obligation to his old friend's business. Now he was free! That settled it. Old E ngland was in need of help from men such as he. He was as sound as a bell in wind and limb, he bad done his turn at volun teering, and coum scoot more than a little. Within half an hour his name was entered as one of those who were ready for service at the front, and he was ordered to go before the doctor. That gentleman laughed at him. "If we get 1,400 men as fit as you are," be said, "we shall do well!" Having successfully passed all tbe tests, and been duly enrolled as one of the City of Londou Imperial Volunteer corps, he felt slightly easier iahis mind. It must be confessed that he was iu that pleasant frame of miud when a man firmly believes that there is no body to grieve over him, and finds a morbid pleasure in the prospect of a soldier's grave. Moat of us get these atiacks of de spondency some time in our lives, and, to tell the truth, it lasted a very short time with Joe R-sibolL After a few days of hard drill, he bad lottt eight of the possibility of getting killed, and was looking forward to making things as unpleasant as possible for tbe enemy. Atla.it the final moraeut came. Ha had attended the service at St, Paul's, and sung the national anthem until he was hoarse. He had been slapped on the brick by hundreds of warm hearted but heavy-handed citizens. He had even fought his way success fully through a mob of enthusiastic patriots, all the way from Bunhill row to Nine Elms, w here he was one of the first to arrive. There stood the team waiting to take them to Southampton. There, loo, stood the long-suffering-band and every minute groups of breathless, ex cited men in khaki, who bad also fought their way through the crowd, rushed on to the platform. Of course, It was all over. There was nothing to be done but get into tbe train and say good-by to old London for months perhaps for ever. Ouce more a gloomy scDse of loneliness came upon hint. Everybody vise had a chum or a relative to see him off. Aud, then an angel came from heaven? Not quite! Cut an earthly angel appeared, in the shape of a slight form in a long black cloak, who was pushing her way feverishly through the crowd, eagerly scanning the faces of all the "gentle men in khaki." Then their eyes met, and in a minute he was clasping in his arms tbe girl who had refused him a month before, aud in whose presence he bad always been so shy that he had never yet dared to press ber hand. How had it happened ? There seem ed no need and certainly no time for explanations. Why had he accept ed her foolish "No," when she never meant htm to? She always thought he would speak to her again. Why had be been so awkward and brusque in the way he bad ank her ? He had giveu her no chance to say "Yes." And it was only last Dight she bad learned what had happened from Dewhurst's own lips and she had cried all night at the mischief she had done, and would he forgive ber? And did be still care for her a little bit ? "Take your seats, there!" roared an officer. Jt was net the time for mock modes 1MAY 10. L900. ty. With her arms round his neck, and tear-stained cheeks pressed to his, she promised to wait for him. 44Gyd bless you!" be whispered. "And God bring yoa back to nie!" she answered. And then, with cheers and whistles, and the baud playing ,4God Save the Queen," and men shouting and laugh ing and crying, the train moved out, and the City's Own were en route for the front. Answers. Secret of His S access. Mr. Chauncey M. Depew is one of the most accessible men to newspaper reporters, and he receives them all in the same genial manner with which be receives his persoual friends. He is said to attribute a large part of bis popularity to newspapers. "For," as he said to a friend not long ago, "I always treat the papers well and they always do the same by me." A reporter asked him the other day how much time in a week he gave to inter viewers. "Oh, about two hours a day," he replied. 44 You must be pretty good natured," the newspaper man said. "I have never seen him anything else," Harry Duval, his secretary, in terposed. 44 Well, you see," laughed Depew, "it pays to be good-natured. I think just as does this lady from whom I received a letter this morning, beginning "It's sweet to live.' Now, what do you think of that? I don't know what she's driving at, but it is sweet to live, isn't it?" And the reporter left with the sound of Depew a hearty laugh sounding in bis ears. Keep the Teeth Clean. Dr. Oliver, in the Texas Dental Jour nal, in an article upon "Oral Hygiene," believes that the teeth should be looked after by a competent dentist from the time when the child begins to cut its first teeth, and says that he has seen the first teeth ruined by rubbing through the gums with a thimble or scalpel, breaking the enamel before the teeth bave come to light- He cautions people against cutting and slashing the gums of an Infant, unless it Is ab solutely essential, and in any case it should de done by a competent person. Not only are the first teeth liable to injury from UDwise aud unskillful in terferences, but the embryonic second or permanent Jeeth may be injured. He defines orvl bygieue to be "the keeping of a clean, sweet and healthy mouth from youth up to old age." Apropos of this the Dominion Dental Journal says that many persons toler rate more filth and disease la their mouths than they would on their feet. The mouth is tbe portal of life and health. Too Many Dogs in Kansas. Kansas has suffered in years past from an overproduction of grasshop pers and PopullsU. It is dow afflicted It appears, with a surplusage of dogs. It is long on dogs, but short oh sheep The secretary of tbe Kansas State Apricultural Society deplores this fact la a recent report He shows that there are but 200.000 sheep in tbe state, while the number of dogs is 176.000. Two years ago the sheep outnumbered the dogs by 30 per cent, while laat year this percentage was reduced to 17. In one county there were 900 dogj to each sheep, and in twelve selected counties there were 'JJO dogs to each sheep. If a similar investigation were made in other States, we doubt not that fume of them would show an equal dispropor tion of dogs and sheep. But It is not a good sign anywhere. Prosperity for the farmer docs not lie along the way t f an increase in the dog crop. Can Firing and Deafness. The stunning report of each gun as it is fired is something that a stranger on the deck will loni; remember. There is an old saying, "deaf as a pott." Now, in the royal navy, this is changed to "deaf as a post captain." No man can go through a long series of gunnery practices without baviDg his heariug seriously affected. Some men put cottou wool in their ears, but even tnls precaution does little to deaden the terrible shock. And if the firing of one or two guns has such a shattering power, what would be the effect if the whole armament were in action together? It is almost Impossible to conceive the strain upon nerve and senses of the rending concussion. If a visitor watches the firing of one of the mon ster nine-inch guns, and then places himself beside ODe of the small pieces, the report made by tbe one will not appear much louder than that of the other. The extra distance to the muz zle of the big piece discounts the sounds. .The only apparent difference between the two apoears to be that the small pieces have a sharper, higher- pitched note, and that the six and nine-Inch guus speak with more of a bellowing roar. One piece of advice may be given to anyone who finds himself iu the neighborhood of a gun In action. Tbe noise will not have nearly tbe same effect if you are watching the gun as if the crash comes unexpectedly. Unconsciously nature prepares you to resist a shock which Is known to be impending.

Lawton, admittedly the greatest Indian fighter of the army, with all his energy, persever ance and natural military genius, was as conspicuously modest as Gen. Grant. On public occasions, says a writer in the New York Tribune, he was as bash ful as .a girl, and as his great height made him the center of fjttentJon io a crowd, there were many occasions when his bashfulness was evidently painful. Admiral Bradford, who is one of the giants of the navy, first met Gen. Lawton just after the famous 1,600 mile chase for Gerouiiuo, wherein he had displayed that genius for moving his men which was so conspicuous throughout the Philippine eanipaign. "I went to the white house reception in lS.si for the first time," says Admi ral Bradford, "and wheu I got into the jam of the east room I could see noth ing but a sea of heads, uutil I fouud myself looking above the crowd at a handsome young man, whose whole head stood above the general leveL He was the hero of the hour, just back from his capture of Geronimo's band, and apparently was suffering agonies from the attentions showered upon him." When Gen. Lawton came home from Cuba last year, it was found that be had gained no more self-possession thau he exhibited when unwillingly lionized tea years before. The presi dent insisted .upon his goiug to Ala bama with him when Tuskegee was visited. At Montgomery the president and Gen. Wheeler spoke, and there, was elequence on all sides. Finally the governor of Alabama introduced Gen. Lawton as "the hero of Santiago." Lawton was forced to say something. It is said to be the single speech of his life. He stood for a long time, bowing to tbe wildly cheering crowd, and after several attempts to bide himself, only to be lifted to his feet again, he was finally induced by the president to make some response to the applause. He advanced to the front, aud wheu he could be heard, said simply: . "I aai not a hero. lam just a regu lar. I can't make a speech. Thank you." Then he succeeded la hiding him self for the rest of the tour. - His last apj.arance in Washington was at a great Gridiron club dinner to the army and navy. Gen. Shafter un rolled a raanuhcript and read a few re marks; Schley, with his ready wit and ease, charmed everybody; Sigsbee talk ed well amid cheers; Gen. Breckinridge was as eloquent as usual, but when Lawton was called, he rose, trembling, aud after bowing in ailence took his seat. No greater ovation was ever given a man than he received when his name mas uttered. There was cheerio and waviug of napkins foreveral minutes. The guests all rose to their feet, while he alone remained seated. Afterward he declared that it was a hundred times as bad as the assault on El Caoey. A Boy to Depend Upon. Jeremiah Jones is even meaner than the man who split up his wife's tomb stone to repair bis doorstep. Jones was an inveterate tobacco smoker, but, as his wife detested the practice and made home tempestuous and stormy for him when he indulged in the habit there, he always smoked when away during the day, and declared to his better half that he had stopped permauentlyTBi-V one evening, upon entering the front door and drawiugout his handkerchief, he accidentally pulled out his pouch of tobacco, and, without noticing it, left it lying on the floor. Wheu Jones sat down to his supper, his wife walked in with the tobacco in her baud, and lookicg Jones firmly in the eye, said: "Do you know who this belougs to?" With great presence of mind, Jouoa turned, scowling, to his eldest sen and said, with a severe voice: "Immortal Mars! Is it possible that you have be gan to smoke? You youDg reprobate? Where'd you get that nasty stuff? What do you mean by such conduct, you youug villain? Haven't I told you often enough to let tobacco alone? Come here to me, or I'll tear the coat off you." As be spoke, the stern father made a grab at the boy and dragged him out into the hallway, where he chastistd bim with a cani. Then Jones threw the tobacco over the fence, where he weut out and got it the next morning and enjoyed it during the day. "Merciful heavens!" he exclaimed, when he told us about it, "What should I have done if my children had all been girls? It makes an old father's heart glad when he feels that he has a boy he can depend upon in such emer gencies." Yoa Can't Get Ee.ted B-cause That Tired Feeling is not the result of exertion.'

T1 WHOLE NO, 254G. The Sejatorship from Pennsylvania. From the Philadelphia laolrer. The Insurgent newspapers of PeDn sylvanla are amusing themselves these days with guesses concerning the United States Senatorsbip. They as sume to believe that, because by the narrow margin of one vote Colonel Quay was refused his seat in the Sen ate, he is doue for for all time. Be cause Henry W. Oiiver presided over the recent State Convention, they de clare that Oliver is to be given the Quay support. When they get tired of discussiag Oliver, they talk about Magee, and Widtner, and even Sibley, who has jumped into the Republican party from the other side. All these things are very amusiDg, When men are making a losing fight they whistle to kwp their courage up, rnd that is just what the insurgent or sans are doing to-d.ty. While shiver ing on the verge of despair they whis tle and try to make themselves think that their jig is nt up. The State Convention made Colonel Quay tbe candidate for Senator. He is not a candidate of his own volition, but when the great party with which be has acted not only invites him to be come a candidate, but demands it, what else can he do? He is in the hands of tbe Republican party of Pennsylvania, and the Republican State Convention pledged itself to sup port him. He is the oi.ly candidate. There seems to be no doubt that Quay is much stronger tis-day than he was before the adverse vote in the United States Senate. This will be shown when more of the primary elections to name candidates for the legislature are held. Up to date be has gained very materially over his vote in the last Legislature. He is practically out of the woods now ; that is, if Republicans go to the polls and vote the Republican ticket. Tbe only possible way by which he can be (eaten is to turn the State over to the Democrats. To do this would create great confusion, and would undoubt edly lose to the Republican organiza tion in Congress several members that undoubtedly will be needed. Indeed, the insurgents have about given up the idea of electing any Republican to succeed Q'lay. The lenders among the ptrty wreckers r re alr-tdy advocating through their organs fusion with the 1 KTnocrats. The Democratic candi date is Colonel Guffey, and thtse lead ers are more than wiiiing to elect Guf fey rather than see Quay returned. The whole otjcCt of the insurgent leaders to-day is to elect Democrats to tie Legislature. We doubt very much if they will find any considerably following will ing to go with them, A few conspir ing leaders may think that they can control the great Republican vote of Pennsylvania, but we have an idea that the Republicans of this state are altogether too loyal to their party to give their votes to meu who will sup port Guffey for United States Senator. Origin of Visiting Cards. "The use of visiting cards dates back to quite an antiquity," explains Mrs. Wo Koert Schuyler, in the Ladies' Home Journal. "Formerly the porter at the lodge or door of great houses kept a visitors' book, in which he scrawled his idea of the Dames of those who called upon tbe master and his family, and to whose inspection it was submitted from time to time. One Lfine gentleman, a scion of the nobility from the Faubourg St. Germain, was shocked to find that his porter kept so poor a register of the camea of tiiose who had called upon bim. The names, badly written with spluttering pen and pale or muddy Ink, suggested to him the idea of writing his own name upon slips of paper or bits of card board in advance of calling upon his neighbors lest his name should fare as badly as the hands of their porters. This custom soon became generally established." Care of Milk and Churning. As soon as drawn from the cow, put the milk where no bad odors can reach it, or better, as soon as a pail is filled strain it into the can and place it in a tank of cold water or run through tbe separator, if one is used. If ice is plen tiful, reduce the temperature of the water to V degrees, and practically all the cream will be obtained. Do not mix the night's and morning's milk if the Lest grade of butter is expected. Change the water in the tank often enough to prevent Its becoming foul. If tbe water is kept at a temperature of about 5-3 degrees, practically all the cream will rise in twenty-four Lours. Skim, aud when enough is obtained for a churning, raise to a temperature of GO to 6-" degrees to ripen. Hasten the ripening by usiug sour skim milk an a starter. In winter churn at i drgrees; in summer 53 to GO is preferable. As soon as the granules are the size of wheat grains, draw o3 and wash until all the buttermilk is removed. Work, salt and market as soon as possible. If you are so unfortunate as to get a poor grade of butter it must be consumed at once or it will soon be urflt for use. An Epidemic of Whooping Congo.

Hs Tt Ua the Truth, A Pennsylvania ditor who love the truth says : "Willie Shortlike s,r.d Bettie P.looiit- ers were tiiarm-u last evening. The c'mreh was prettily decorated with flowers aud potted plants, borrowet promiscuously all over town frota peo ple who didn't want to lend them. The decoration was done under protest by some of tbe members of the church, who were asked to do so by the bride, and couldn't well refuse. The ladies are of the opinion that if the couple were so bent on having a stylish wed ding they should have been willing to have paid someone to chase all over the town for a day getting flowers to gether and then taking them borne again. "The bride wore a handsome Silver stela gown, made at home, and the groom was decked In a 10 handnie down ;uit The ushers wore cutaway coats borrowed for the occasion. Sallie Potts was maid of houor, and the con census of opinion was that she was- 2 to 1 better than the bride.

Some of our merchants think it would har been better if he had settled down first The groom gets a salary of f7 a month, which is about the allowance Bettie has bten used to for pin money. We wish for Willie's sake that the old saying that it takes no more to support two than one wasn't a lie. "The bride sent up a shoe-box full of a conglomeration of stuff supposed t lie cake. If this is a sample of JMtie's cake we feel sorry for Willie. Our janitor's dog fell heir to the cake and now he's lyiug in the cold, cold ground. But this aedding is none of our funeral.

Save the Ejjshells. Eggshells are valuable. They should not be thrown away. They are par ticularly -.a! aable in the spring when youn; broods of chicks are to be pro vided for. Little chicks need grit. Tt.ey need it from tho very moment they are put out of doors with the mother hen. It is tbe cowvmon prso tio then to stuff them with doughy mixtures exclusively, and great armies of them are slain -jvery year by this method of feeding. Comparatively few people kuow that the addition of sfime gritty matter at this time would to a great extent stop tliU slaughter. The poultry supply houas have f ir sale chick grit, and it is an excellent article to keep on hand, but egg shells make a pretty fair substitute for It Place the shells in the oven of the kitchea stove and subject them to a slow beat until they are thoroughly dried.
