VOL 13. NO 39.
)b sweetly solemn thought
Comes to ma o'er and o er, -
I'm nearer home to-day.
Than I hare ever been before.
Nearer my Father's home,
Where the many mansions be ;
Nearer the great white throne,
Nearer the jasper sea ;
Nearer the bounds of life.
Where we lay our burdens down, , ,
Nearer leaving the cross,
Nearer gaining the crown.
But lying darkly between,
Winding down through the night.
Is the dim and unknown stream
That leads me at last to light.
Closer, closer, my steps
, Come to the dark abysm,
Closer death to my lips "
Presses the awful nhriam. . ,,
Father, perfect my trust.
Strengthen the night of my faith j
Let me feel as I would when 1 stand
On the rock of the shore of death.
Jeel as I would when my feet, '
Are slipping on the brink,
For it may be I'm nearer home,
Nearer now than I think !
A DOCTOR'S STORY.
"And now we'll have a cozy, comfortable
evening together," said uiy wife. ''And
but what's that, Irving ?"
)1? wife started nervously, as a sharp peal
from the bell interrupted our brief interval
of domestic quiet. . ' :
"Only the surgery bell, my dear. Some
body wanting uie. I suppose.""'
And I went down stairs, secretly wonder
ing to myself if, after all, there was such a
iJo difference between a galley tlave and a
Tbe surgery door stood wide open, but no
one wad there, and through the tiliniliug
(Lrkness without, I could discern the dark
outline of a close carriage and a man stand
ing at the horse's head. . , -
"Who's there? what's wanted ?" I ask
cd, coming to the threshold and instinctive
ly buttoning u tithe overcoat I had hurriedly
"You'ie wanted, doctor," said the man,
speaking indistinctly from behind the muf
fling tiiat surrounded his face.
"Ted, but what for? who wants me ?"
"I am not at liberty to tell."
I had already entered the carriage, but
thi3 BU3picious answer inspired me with dis
trust. I made a step to descend, but I was
too late. The vehicle was already in motion.
"It is quite unnecessary to alarm yourself,
doctor," said a quiet measured voice at uiy
side. "'Believe me, you are quite safe, and
I trut you will feel no uneasiness -when I
tell you that you must be blindfolded."
And at the same instant a folded bandage
was deftly slipped over my eyes. -
"Hold !" I ejaculated. "It strikes me
that this is rather superfluous. The night
h dark as Erebus, and you have no lamp."
'"Possibly," returned the dry voice, ''but
it is best to run no risks."
And then ensued a silence of some ten or
fifteen minutes, while the carriage rolled
swiftly along, and the low measured breath
ins: of my unknown companion kept time to
ray own uncomfortable thoughts.
At length my companion ske again in
the t-ame soft, modulated tones.
"Doctor, one more little precaution is
necessary your promise never to divulge to
human soul a Word of this night's visit."
I fesitated. "I cannot bind myself to
any such covenant. The relations between
phy3wian and patient are of course confiden
tial ; but '
Th carriage paused abruptly here, and
the door was swung open. At the same io
tant something cold touched my temple.
It wan the muzzle of a pistol. I recoiled in
"You surely would not murder me ?"
"You promise, doctor ?"
"I promise I" I gasped, recoiling once
more from the chilling touch of the cold
eteel at my temple.
"Very well ; come !"' ,
I was led up a narrow walk, through a
doorway, into a room, whero bandaga was
removed from my eyes. The spot was very
familiar to me a ruinou3 cottage, long since
abandoned to decay, in the very heart of
dense, swampy woods. How the carriage
had ever reached it I was at a loss to know.
Ipoa pile of strawv hurriedly-thrown into
a corner of the mouldering floor, lay a pros
trate figure, moanin? at every breath. His
face waa concealed by a handkerchief, and
the blood was slowly dripping from a gun
ehot wound just above the ankle, a wound
which had been clumsily bandaged by some
unskilful hand. 'Moreover, there was a dark
red stain on the straw where his head lay,
and his light brown hair was' matted with
coagulated drops. Two- or three men stood
around, with rude masks of black cloth
drawn over their faces, in which three slits
were cut for the eyes and mouth ; and a fe
male figure knelt behind the heap of straw,
Jeiled closely. The men silently .made way
for me as I advanced into the apartment,
nd held their lanterns so that -the lurid
"gut should fail full upon my strange pa
tient. I silently stooped and examined both
"Well?" asked my cat
tI can do nothing, the
Onsen sft ! si'mrn i
he man mtrst die."
Ieg what does that amount to?" hurriedly
jra?ped the man.
'In itself, not much ; but that blow upon
the skull must prove fatal. 7 .
A low, half suppressed cry broke from
' Lilian 1 1 uuc iuic iijc vcii i
front her face- as if she could not breathe J
through its heavy folds revealing features ,
s wmte and beautiful in their marble agony
68 so much sculptured stone ! ' She did not
more-than thirty, but I afterwards
now that she was indeed more than ten
years blder. But in spite of her present an-
fuisb, how grandly beautiful she was 1
large dark eyes, hair like coiled gold, catch
ing strange gleams from the shifting lan
terns, and a broad smooth brow. It was a
face you see but once in a lifetime. And
yet, in the midst of her distress, she never
"At least you can do something for him,
doctor ? said my interlocutor, impatiently,
"Dont let us waste time here."
As I proceeded in my miniatrations, the
moaning grew fainter, the convulsive move
ments becume scarcely perceptible. ' A faint
gleam of hope lighted up the. ace of the
woman opposite ; she looked appealingly at
"He is" better he is surely better."
"He will be soon," I answered, moved to
pity in spite of mvself. ' "He cannot live
half an hour longer. "
The horror of that sepulchral silence that
fell upon us as my accents died away shall
I everforgtt it? And five minutes af er
wards the breathing, spasmodic and painful
to hear, died into eternal stillness. The
young woman lifted the corner of the hand
kerchief, and gazed into the ghastly race.
It was that of a your.g man of about twenty-two
and who had evidently been marvel
lously good Idoking.
Oh, heavens, he is dead I
Her clear' agonized voice was ringing in
my ears, as they led me back into the dark
ness of the night. J felt a bank note in my
hand as I entered the 'carriage once more.
"Doctor, you have done your best; it is
not your fault that your efforts have not
been more successful. Remehiber yoi are
pledged to secresy."
The next moment I was whirling swiftly
through the November midnight, with the
trange, unquiet feeling of one wakened sud
denly from a startling dream, let it was
no dream ala! it was a startling reality.
The carriage stopped at a cross road near
the village. - . .
"Please to alight here, sir," said the dri
ver. "Ymi" are not far from home."
I obeyed, and stood listening in the mid
dle of the road, while the noise of the car
riage wheels died away, losing its .distinct
ness in the shriek of the restless winds. The
clock in the village church tolled out the
hour of one. Late as it was, however, my
surgery was still open and lighted up ; the
servant from Iladdenleigh Hall hadust
ridden up to the door, ..
"If you please, doctor, you are wanted
immediately Pt the Hall. The colonel said
you r-oull rido my horse, if yours were not
already saddled, and I can walk, so there
will be no time lo.-t."
I mechanically mounted the noble animal
that stood waiting ior me, and rode off,
rathor glad of an opportunity to revolve in
my mind the singular adventure that had
befallen me during the evening. Iladden
leigh stood a little back from the road, on a
magnificent knoll crowned with century old
chestnut and beer-hies, and I reached the
broad tone steps in about half an hour, by
dint of rapid strides. As I entered the
vestibule, Colonel Hadden. who had been
pacing up and down the hall in a perfect
agony of impatience, came to meet me.
"Is that you. Dr. Meller? I thought you
never would come. We're in a pretty stite
of coufusion here 1 Burglars in the houe,
my wife's diamonds grone nobody knows
what else but old Hopkins left his sign
manual upon one of the fellows. Thy must
be caught. They can't escape. For you
"Yes, but Colonel Hadden"
"Oh, aye I understand you you wart
to see your patient-? It's Hopkins, the
butler ; he got an ugly blow on the left arm
and afterwards my wife went herself for
Dr. Maynard no offense, Meller, but he
lives nearer than you ; but he was out. She
has only just returned, and I couldn't very
well leave Hopkins, and Mrs Hadden is
such a kind good soul, she insisted on going
herself to fetch Tr. Maynard "
"But, my dear sir ' . '
"Ah, true, come along to Hopkins room. '
Hopkins, the butler, wa as voluble as
his master, and ten times as circumstantial,
arid bv the time I had set his broken fore
arm, 1 was pretty well in possession of all
the particulars of the attempted burglary at
Iladdenleigh. And thinking of uiy mid
night patient, whose life had ebled out up
on the pile of straw. I felt a strange guilti
ness as I listened to Colonel Hadden's eager
conjectures as to the whereabouts of the
desperadoes who had fled.
"And rrcrwj doctor, you'll take a glass of
wine," sai I the hospitable old gentleman,
tub.-, ring me irfto his library.
It was brilliantly lighted, and warm with
the crimson glow of a gertial fire, before
which, in a singularly graceful attitude, sat
a lady, wrapped in the gorgeous folds of an
Indian shawl. .
"Mv wife, doctor; Isabel, my love, this
is Dr. "Meller." : " .
We stood before one another in silence.
I could not speak, for I knew that I was
looking into' the startled agonized eyes of
the woman who had knelt scarcely an hour
before' by the dying touch in the desolate
cottar Colonel Hadden's new wife, of
wtirA beanty I had heard so much.
Tbe Colonel talked on, but I heard not a
word that he said. I could not but marvel
at the wonderful self-possession of the worn-,
an, smiled and 'looked grave and said "yes'
and "no" ir. the right places.
"To le sure," the Colonel was saying, as
I woke into a a 'sort of consciousness of his
voice, "the loss of Isabel's diamonds is
something serious, but of course we shall
reeover them auain. Only, my love, it was
rather careless of you to leave them on the
drawing room table-."
"It was careless," replied Mrs. Hadden,
calmly. "Doctor, you are not going ? Col
onel, you have forgot ten that curious old
book you were wanting to show Dr. Meller."
As the door closed behind the honest old
gentleman, Mrs. Hadden glided up to me
and placed her cold hand on mine ; it was
like the touch of an icicle.
"Doctor, you have my secret you surely
will not betray it?"
"I am pledged to silence, madam," I re
turned coldly ; "but this deceit "
"It is not my fault, doctor," wailed the
woman, "it is my fate. How I endure it I
can scarcely tell ; were I to pause and think,
I should go mad. The man who died to
night was my son! Colonel Hadden knows
nothing of my first marriage, nor of this
dreadful secret of my son's criminal life,
that has weighed me down for years. Over
and over again I have thought to escape
from it, but it has followed my footsteps like
a doom. To-night closes that chapter of
my life oh, heaven! how dreadful! But
my secret is safe the diamonds provided
"But your husband, Mrs. Hadden?"
She covered her pallid, beautiful face
with her hands.
"I know what you would say, Dr. Meller.
I love and honor him beyond all men ; but
what can I do? Believe me, I have never
willingly wronged or deceived him. I never
dreamed of "
She paused abruptly. Colonel Hadden
was entering the room, and the smiling,
casual remark she addressed to him filled
my heart with amazement almost admira
tion.. I rode home to my blue-eyed little
Eleanor, feeling as I eutered the snug sit
ting room as if I were returning to the
homely, happy at mosphere of every day life.
But I never forgot the terrible excitement,
the fearful suspense of that night.
The desperadoes who had attempted to
rifle Iladdenleigh Hall were never detected
or taken all trace of them seemed to have
Utterly vanished out of the earth. And
weie it not for the bank note which most
liberally recompensed mv services, and the
everlasting witness borne by Mrs. Hadden's
lovely face, I should almost have been
tempted to fancy that all the events of that
marvelous November niiu-night were the
frasrniehts of a dream.
This was my adventure -the first and last
that ever crossed the pathway of my life.
A pontlom.-in' travelings in Pittsburcr from
one of the neighboring towns, stopped to
see a friend, and left his horse tied on the
road. On his leturn he found that the ani
mal had slioDed his bridle, and while'in
se rch of him he met an Irish pedestrian
of whom he inquired:

where hereabouts, with a saddle on his

"J nst yonder."
''Will you show me the place?"
'Thur. I will, in less than no time." said
the man, approaching a small wood of young
timber. "Ay, there he is, sure enough,
honey." . ... ,
The gentleman looked up, ana saia:
"I do not see him."

youth of about eight years. In the class,
among other things, the terfchcr told him
that God made this beautiful world and all
that was in it; we must thank Him for the
good things we enjoy. He gives us our food

"Does lie give mc my clothes too?" asked
"Yes He gives us everything."
"Now, there's where you've got yer eye
shut up, old feller mam made these trow
sers out of dad's old ones."
I serenaded Sophia once when she was
but a tender lass, and the greeting which I
received for my traveling musical conven
tion has never been fully appreciated by nie.
It was the witching hour of 1 A. M., when
church-yards yawn. Everything was hush
ed, and stillness reigned profound. I com
menced to sing, "I Bring a Little Flower to
Thee." Sophia wis hanging out of the
windotf rf and it was through her solicitation
that I endeavored to warble this cussed
piece : "I Bring a Little flower to Thee."
Sophia's tyrannical dad stuck his head out
of the window, and in a voice of thunder
roared : "Well, just set it on the door-step'i
and don't make so much fuss about such a
cussed little flower."
Sharp. Said one' student to another,
whom he caught swinging a scythe most
lustily in a field of stout grass, "Frank,
what makes you work for a living? . A fel
low with your talent and abilities should
not be caught engaged in hard labor. I
mean to get my living by my wits." "Well,
Charley, you can work with duller tools
than I can," was the reply.
An insurance agent, urging a citizen to
get his life insured said: "Get your lik in
sured for ten thousand dollars, and then ij
you die next week, the wldder's heart will
sing for joy." - ,
Nothing can tend more to the health of
the body than the tranquility of the mind
and the duo regulation of the passion.

as 8ui table to be put on the ticket, but the
owners promptly refused to let that use be
made of them. Are the public men of Ohio
modest? Or do their ambitions all look at
