ERNEST'S TWILIGHT TALE
"Mamma, how did baby
Find the right way
From the angel's home
That summer day ?"
Said little Ernie
As he nestled close
Down by my side.
"Did God send her soul
On a silver cloud ;
Did he call to you -
So very loud,
"Here's a baby dear
For you to love,
Coming down from heaven
Like . a gentle dove?"
"I think an angel
Came just before,
To show the baby
_ Our papa's door,
0, say, mamma dear,
Did you hear her sing,
And then let our,
Dear little baby in ?"
"And did she have wing* .
When she came that day
That you've taken off
And put away
Did the angel tell you
To lay them uy
Till God should call her
Again on high?"
"If I hear Him call her
I'll quickly say,
Dear Heavenly Father,
0, please let her stay !
You've babies enough
In your heaven above c
, And we've only ono
Little sister to:love !"
FIGURES WON'T LIE.
"To-morrow is the twenty-fourth, isn't
"The twenty-fourth," answered the
young wife sadly.
James Carroll knocked the ashes from
his cigar, held it carefully between the
thumb and fore-finger of his left hand and
looked thoughtfully into the fire.
• Mary's tired fingers showed no signs of
weariness, but. turned the hem of a sheet
mechanically, and then proceeded to baste
it for sewing.
"Belle will be three years old !" he said
"Three, James," replied Mary, without
the trace of a bright smile lightening up
her pretty face: James gave a few more
whiffs at his nearly consumed cigar, but
he did not seem to enjoy it much. A lis
tener would have pronounced Mary a
cold, unloving wife, that the gentle pres
ence of her husband, or the return of her
baby's birth-day, failed to please.
Lookers-on and listeners do not always
look into the depths of the heart to see
what struggles are there. So in this in
stance. Another- woman whose life tea's
all sunshine would have pronounced Ma
ry heartless. Poor thingi She bad too
-much heart for this world's trials. Her
wedding day was a blissful one ; her hus
band the ideal of manly mrfection. His
love, unaccompanied by wealth, was
worth more to her than all the treasures
of earth, But a cloud arose to dim the
brightness of her- sky. She soon made
the discovery that he was.human ; and
that 'the love of wine and possibly some
thing stronger, filled 1116 heart, as well as
the love of his wife. He vas not what
the world would call an intemperate man
—one glass a day does not constitute a
a drunkard why should she fear?
At the end of three years he took at
least two glasses a day. What had she
to hope for in yea! s to come.
"I wish, Mary; I was able to make
Belle a present every birth-day in her life,
but you know that it is all can do to
get along as it is." •
" I know it, James," meeklyreplied the
James was ill at ease. Something in
Mary's manner disturbed him.
"What makes you so solemn and qui
et, Mary? Why not sympathize with
me, and say you know I have a hard time
to get along, and that Belle can do with
out presents better than we can afford to
give them ? Fox gave me a wood bill
this morning, and Jones wants to know
when the grocery bill is to be paid. I
don't like to bother you with these things
only I want you to understand that as
much as I love our little girl, I can't af
ford to make her presents."
Mary's color came and went. Tears
stole into her violet eyes and her heart
beat quick and fast. Her .trembling fin
gers guided her needle unsteadily, and
her stitches were long and irregular.—
Three long years she brooded alone over
her husband's weakness without a reproof
and much 'as she dreaded to speak she
knew her time had come.
"I wish, dear James, I could economize
in something and save money to buy our
darling a present. It seems cruel to neg
lect her birth-day so soon."
"I know nothing ycu could be more
prudent in Mary, and you know I am as
A FAMILY NEWSPAPER -- , DEVOTED: TO 'LITERATURE, ;icipAr. AND GENERA'. NEWS. ETC.
WAYNESBORO', FRANKLIN COUNTY, PA., THURSDAY, JANUARY 8, 1874.
economical as possible, don'i; you."
It was very hard for the lips that had
uttered only 'the loving words of praise to
say no ; but a strength not her own cause
to her aid, and with a sweet, sad smile,
the wife uttered her first rebuke.
"No, James, I am grieved to say that
in some things you are too extravagant.
It must be a sin of ignorance, for I know
if you realize it you would never wrong
your wife and child."
James started from his seat. His - eyes
flashed and his cheeks paled.
"Mary, are you crazy ?"
"Not crazy, James, but clear-headed
for our happiness."
After the first shock passed, and he has
prepared to' listen, she went on, and in a
clear concise manner, laid before him the
cause of her bitter words ;
at least two glasses of liquor a day, hav
"Why, yes, I suppose • so. What of
Only ten cents a glass—that can't - rui
"Three hundred and sixty-five days,
which multiplied by twenty cents amounts
to 'seventy-three dollars. And three ci
f,. aars day which I know is far below your
average of smoking, will amount to. as
much more, which makes one hundred
and forty dollars. Forty dollars would
pay our coal', and grocery bills now due,
and leave a balance of ninety-six dollars
for baby and me. You know too that
the time spent in drinking is worse than
wasted, for tobacco and liquors poison
the system, destroys the health, soften
the brain, weakens the nerves, and bring
ruin to thousands of happy homes. There
is a lack of tenderness for Belle and me
when your nerves are excited by drink.—
I forgive you freely but the sting is left
in my. heart." •
Nary's effort overcame her and she fell
into a passionate fit of weeping.
The strong man trembling.
"Am I blind? Is it possible. I have
wronged my dearest treasure ?"
They mingled their tears, and talked'
till a late hour, laying plans for the fu
ture; and James begged forgiveness of
her he had wronged.
"It is not too late to save my health
and strength," said the penitent man, and
so it proved: -
In one year from that day two beauti
ful silver cups were brought home by the
happy father, one for Belle's fourth birth
day ; and the other for his wife who had
"Mary's bore the inscription : "An an
gel saw me and lifted me up."
On Belle's was neatly, engraver] : "A
little child shall lead thew."
Years have passed since then, and the
happy, couple in the vigor of life, o each
recurring birthday of Belle, who is now
a young lady of eighteen, tell to •her the
little trial of their married life, and the
great happiness that has grown from self
denial and justice.
The good wife and mother has kept the
silver-bright, and not a meal has been
eaten at home but the cups are on the
table where James could be reminded of
the promise he had made and so faithful
Pennies, like minutes are often thrown
away, because people d 6 not know what
to do with them. Those who are econo
mists of the time, and all the great men
on record have been so, take care of the
minutes ; for they know that a few min
utes well applied each day will make
hours in the course.of a week, and days
in the course of a year ; and in the course
of a long life, they will make enough of
time, if well employed, in which a man
may, by perseverance, have accomplish
ed some work useful to his fellow 'crea
tures, and to himself. Large fortunes,
when gained honestly, are rarely acquir
ed in any . other way than by small say
ings at first ; and savings can only by ha
bits of industry and temperance. A sav
ing, therefore, while he is adding to the
general wealth, is setting an example of
those virtues, on which the very, existence
and happiness of society depend. There
are saving people who are misers, and
have no one good quality fur which we
can like them. These are not the kind
of people of whom we are speaking, but
we remark that a miser, though a disa
greeable fellow while alive is a, vet.? use
ful person when dead. He has been com
pared to . a tree, which, while it is growing
can be applied to no use, at last furnishes
timber for houses and domestic utensils.
But a miser is infinitely more useful than
a spendthrift, a mere consumer and west
er, who, after he has, spent, all. his . money,
tries to spend that of other people.
. ABOUT SAVING.—There is, perhaps, no
one in this world more to be pitied than
the poor rich man—the man who has got
into the habit of saving until he saves
from sheer delight in seeinc , his wealth
increase, and counting every dollarof ex
penditure as though its loss was some
thing that could never be repaired. Yet
it is the duty of every poor man to save
something. The posession of a few dol
lars often makes all the difference between
happiness and misery, and no man, espec
hilly with a family dependent upon him,
can be truly independent Unless he has a
few dollars reserved for the time of need.
While extreme carelessness as to the ex
penditure of money will make a rich man
poor, a wise economy will almost as cer
tainly make a poor man rich, or at least
make him to a considerable extent inde
pendent of the caprices of employers and
of the common vicissitudes of life. Noth
ing is more important to the poor man
than the habit of saving something; his
little hcard will soon begin to grow at a
rate which will surprise and gratify him.
A CHAT 'ABOUT -SLEEP
A very thin lady, ofthout twenty years
with a promising beau, came to consult
Me about her "skin and bones."
I had freqnently met her when sheieem- ,
ed even more emaciatedi;ibut,.now the
would ,"give the world to bp *lnn." Sit
ting down in front of me she began with—
" Don't you think doctor'; that I look very
old for twenty ?" '
I admitted that she looked • rather old
for twenty.. '
"Can anything ,be done for me ! What
can, I take, for ' it ? I should be ' willing to
take a hundred bottles of the worst stuff
in the world, if I only could get some fat
on these bones. A friend; of mine' (her
beau) was saying yesterday that he would
give a fortune to see me round au4
ry ould you be willing to go to the Cliff'
spring in. Arkansas•?" .
"I. would start to-morrow."
'But the waters are very , bad to drink.'?
"I don't care how bad they are, I know,
lean drink then."
"Lasked you whether you are willing
to go to the Arkansas springs to test the
strength of your purpose. It is, not neces
sary to leave home. Nine thin people in
ten become reasonably' plump without
such a sacrifice."
"Why, doctor, .I •am delighted to hear
it but I suppose it is a lot of some awful
bitter stuff." •
"Yea, it is a pretty bitter dose, and has
to be taken every night." •
"I don't care. I would take it if it was
ten times as bad. What is it? What is
the name of it?"
"The technical name of the stuffis ted
ibus Nine o'clockibus.' "
• "Why, doctor, what an awful name! I
am sure I shall never be able to speak it.
Is there no common English word of it?"
"Oh yes. The English of it is, "You
must be in bed every night by nine o'clock.
We doctors generally .use Latin. Bedibus
Nine oclockibus' is the Latin for 'You
must be in bed every night; by' nine
"Oh that is dreadful. I thought it
was something I 'could take.?
"It is. You must take your bed every
night before the clock strikes nine." •
"No, I thought. 7 That's the Way with
all of you. One person eats enormously
of rich food till hii stomach and liver
refuse to budge; then he cries out, O'h,•
doctor, what can I take. I must take some
thing." Another fills, his
.system, with .
tobacco 'until his 'nerves ' are ruined, and
then, trembling and full or horrors, he
exclaims, 'Oh, doctor, what shall I taker

at once, 'Oh doctor; I thought you Would
give me something to take.' Another sits
up till thirteen and fourteen o'clock,leads
a life of theatres and other disSipations,
be tees pale, dyspeptic and wretched,
slick flies to the doctor, and cries, 'Oh doc
tor what shall I take? What shall..l
take?' Now, madam, you are distressed
because your lover haS been looking at
your 'skin and bon& " .
"But, doctor, you are entirely—" •
"Oh, well, we'll say nothing about him,
then. But, tell me, what time do you go
to bed?" , . -
"Generally abOut twelve o'clock.""
"Yes,'l thought so. Now, if you will
go to bed every night for six months at
nine o'clock without' making any other
changino• a in your habits, you will gain
ten pounds in weight and look live year;
younger. Your skin will become freSir,
and your spirits improie wonderfully:".
"I'll do it. But when I have company
and during the opera I can't do it." •
'"lt is regularity that does the buisness:
To sit up till twelve o'clock three nightS
of the week, and then get :to bed af nine
o'clock four nights, one might think would
do very well, and that atany rate it would'
be 'so far so good.' I :don't think this•

whole week. - I'have sometiines thought
that these people who sit up'to eleven or
twelve o'clock every night get on quite as
'well as those who turn in early , six nights,
and then sit up once a week till midnight.
Regularity in sleep is every, whit ,as im-,
portant as regtd4ity in food."
At length my patient exclaimed, "Doc

City, which cost $28,000, was sold recent

to Parker's , Landing, thence .to where the
woodbine twineth, iu the,second great fire

months she had another theatre and an
academy of music. In five months she'
had her celebrated mud fire-extinguisher,
sired by a live Yankee, and d—cl_by ne

When in Stockholm I had a desire to
see the king, so I wrote to the secretary
of state. I was politely informed that his
majesty had gone visiting, but would re
turn in two days. When he arrived I
was invited to call on him. I went up
stairs' unchallenged, and at length inter
cepted a servant by whom I was directed
where to find the king.
"Good'mornlng," said he.
"Good morning," I responded..
And this was our introduction. In less
than three minutes he asked me to have
a cigar , and then showed my books which
had been translated. I felt proud, it was
an honor to have them in his language.
He asked me to come and spend the next
.day with him. I went and roamed
through the palace in search of its own

about ?" and succeeded in arousing some
one who pointed me to a room. I entered
it, and found the king just putting ou his
coat. He had been at work painting.—
When about leaving I requested some of
his portraits to give to the girls in Brook

NOVEL TEUPERANCE CRITSADE.-:-A
dispatch from Fredonia, NeW York gives
the follosving account of a grand' rally for
temperance in that place thatbas created
much excitement. We take no stock in
the result, as wenave little faith in re
forms, religious or temperance; that are
subject to • fits and starts, anti generally
die out as they rise. Temperance brought
about gradually •by careful teaching and
training, will stand when others fail, the
trouble being, however, to make 'such a
sentiment universal in a community.—
The dispatch alluded to says:
Our quiet village has been thrown into
a high state of excitement for a few days
past by a novel crusade against the liquor
selling interests.. Dr. Din Lewis, of whom
all your readers have doubtless heard
much in'the last ten years, lectured here
on temperance on last Friday night, and
