CLEARFIELD, PA., "WEDNESDAY, JUNE 19,' 1867.
VOL, 13.-NO. 41.
Proud man may climb ambition's height,
And seek to win the meed of fame ;
Te, he may feel his breast beat light
When glory beami around his name ;
But not for these does woman seek
Far humbler her ambition's show ; .
At home she reigns a sovereign meek
A woman lives (or love alone.
Etill in her daily duty moves,
With thoughtful brow and steadfast mind ;
She proves her faith in him she loves,
By gentle blood-and aooents kind ;
The praise of one dear voice alone
Is all she claims without it not,
Oh ! ye to whom her heart hath flown,
For 'tis the sun that lights her lot.
If cold neglect or anger strange
Should prove her portion, yet the ray
Of her pore love will never change,
Though hope and health and bliss decay ;
By patient smiles and kinder tone
The truant gently she recalls;
Or if, perchance, reproach is shown,
'lis in the tear that silent falls.
Woman has faults arid weakness, too,
But stronger man, oh ! bl.ime them not;
Believe me, her affection true
Through changeful life shall cheer thy lot.
Home-ties. Home-love, let none disdain
More dear than wealth or fame conld prove,
They o.er the heart triumphant reign,
And all are blest in woman's love.
"Well, Uncle Abel, now you are off for
home, I suppose : trading all done, crops all
bargained lor, eh?" and John Dare lifted
Lis hat and pushed back his thick hair as he
stood on the hotel steps talking to a plain
country farmer in a suit of home-spun
era- . . . .
a al, no, not quite, John. 1 want to
get Betsey a bunnec, a real nice one, just as
good a one as a Yorker might want. 'Cause
lietsey s worked awful hard this summer

my Betsey shan t look as good as any body,

Uncle Abel. I'll look at the pretty girls,
though : you won t mind that. Come on
So they walked off up the street, the fash
ionable attire ot the young lawyer contrast
ing strongly with the antiquated cut of the
a i .
iarnier a garments, wnicu at home , were
wont to he in solemn state in the spare room
all the week, only to be worn on Sunday
with becoming carefulness. There was little
likeness in the face a trifle too fair for man
ly' beauty, with its blonde moustache, and
getting of close brown curls to the bronzed
and beardless one. with the few locks", spare
and gray, beneath the well-brushed hatj tut
the clear blue eye was the same in botb, and
like those' that were closed forever under
the sod by the apple-orchard on Uncle Abel's
farm, where his dead sister was laid when
John was" a. tiny child, f it troubled John
not a whit to be seen with the plain coun
tryman. In spite of his perfumed hair and
well-gloved hand his heart was true and leal
to the good friend of his boyhood, and the
inquiring glances of his companions gave
him no annoyance whatever. V
They reached Madame Rosette' s at last,
and John "lounged in the doorway and
straightway engaged in the laudable employ
ment of finding out the prettiest face among
all the girls in attendance. Josie Mollett,
radient with smiles and and, I think,, a
little artificial bloom, came forward with her
most bewitching glances to wait upon the
old farmer who brought so attractive a per
son with him ; and, fancying that she would
how her superior ability by so doing, made
up her mind to quiz Uncle Abel unmerci
fully. Poor old man I In Hoptown he
would have had no trouble whatever. Miss j
Crabtree. in her plain dress and can with
lavender ribbons; would have told him at
once what to get, and her little gray eyes
would not have confused him in the least.
But here was a fine lady with a great cir
cumference of black silk trailing .out along
the carpet, a Waist no bigger than a. wasp,
a head on which the hair seemed struggling
in crimps and curls to get away from shin
ing bands strapped tightly around it, and a
pair of great black eyes looking straight at
nim. While the damsel held up one style
after another.or tried them on coquettishly,
ynele Abel looked at John imploringly, but
derived no help from him. :
".Now, young woman, show me some of
your best bonnets real good ones. None
of your old-fashioned, poor things for xny
Having said this Uncle Abel felt that he
had stated the case clearly and should have
no further trouble. , '
Miss Josie sailed about and returned with
white chip gipsy, trimmed with blue, a
shirred green satin, with a red rose on it,
and a gray straw trimmed with scarlet pop
pies. 1 . ' '
"Now this will b3 just what you want, I
ni sure; only twenty-five dollars, too so
cheap and so becoming. - .. , .
L nele Abel confessed afterward that he
felt quite confounded at the great price, but
did not mean to let that Frenchified girl
know it, so he only Baid, "Oh, that's the
style, eh? It ain't a bit like Betsey's old
. "Oh no, sir, the fashion has changed en
tirely. Now this gipsy is jast the newest
thing out, and your wife would set the fash
ion in the town, I don't doubt" ; " '
fche looked up at John Pare merrily, but
eould not interpret the look in his eyes ; so
-kuig it for granted that it was an expres
sion of admiration, Bhe pursued the same
"Just fresh from Paris; I am sure your
we would like that. Shall I try it on for
you." . . . , . , , ,
. "Wa'al, yes, I ea tell better how it looks
. There Lt goes ou in this way,' ' and Jo
w pitched the. little thing over her rosy
tied the -strings in a big knotyand
queer, ain t it, John?
John thus appealed to could only answer
that he "knew nothing in the world about
women's bonnets;" and took ud his reverie.
whatever it was, just where it was broken
off. But looking idly in the long mirror op
posite he saw Josie making signs to another
girl, and he soon found that they were amus
ing themselves at the perplexity of their
customer. lie saw, too, that a pale, quiet
irl, with smooth brown hair looked up from
er work indignantly, and he rather saw
than heard her say, "for shame," and grow
crimson as she spoke.
His own face flushed a little as he became
aware that Uncle Abel was being made the
butt of their jokes good Uncle Abel, who
was looking so admiringly at the fabrics in
comprehensible to him, his old heart only
full of the thought how he should make his
present worthy of the patient soul for whom
it was intended.
lhen John was greatly perplexed, tor as
he said, truly, he knew nothing about al
that mysterious and bewildering arrange
ment or dress that he saw every day,
Still, he knew that Aunt Betsey's spare
locks, thinly sprinkled with gray, were not
dressed in modern style, and he could not
for the life of him see whereabouts on that
dear old head any of these gypsies or fan
chaons would rest. He remembered that
long ago Aunt Betsey was wont to twist her
hair with the same energy that distinguished
all her movements, and that this operation
1 . t 1 11 1 ,.1 I 1 Al
resuiteu in a nam Knoo at tne tmct ot her
head, like a door handle, which certainly
would not harmonize with these capeless
Just as his brow was overcast with this
thought the pale girl came toward Uncle
Abel, her cheek flushing as she did so in
defiance of the other girls, holding in her
hand a plain Leghorn bonnet, trimmed with
violet ribbon, bhe wore a mourning dress,
and the plain JJrooch at her throat held
lock of gray hair.
"I think that this might suit you, sir.
she said. "If your wife don't dress her hair
in these fashions those bonnets would not do
at all. This is rich and plain, and covers the
back or the head and neck.
v a ai now, tell me, ior x nave got so
bothered with these things that I don't know
one from t other. 1 want to get a nice bun-
nit for Betsey, and 1 mean to. Wow jest tell
me if you would like your mother to wear
one like this: Ub,lbegyourfrardon,ma am
I didn't see," and he touched the sleeve ot
her black dress. 1-1 am po sorry !
The young lady brushed off a tear quickly
as she said. "I have no mother now; but if
you trust me, sir, i think; this will suit.
bhe had stood hitherto, jut out or the
range or John lare s vision, and had not
seen him at all. Something in the sound
of her voice attracted him, perhaps, and
when Uncle Abel called: "Here, John
Dare," he stepped hastily enough towards
them. The girl thrust the bonnet in Uncle
Abel's hand, and would have been out of
sight if her dress had not caught in one of
the branching stinds and held her fast.
Amy ! and John Dare, with a hot flush
on his face, caught her hand and so detained
her. "Amy Egbert, have 1 found yoa at
ast?" .. .
The girl's face grew white and red bv
turns, and the words she spoke came so low
and broken that only John could catch their
Uncle Abel pushed his spectacles up ou
his forehead, and still holding the bonnet in
his hand, looked, open-mouthed, from one
to the other.
"I . guess you must have knowed this
young woman afore, didn't you?" but John
was too busy with eager questions, and Amy
was trembling and blushing as she tried to
speak calmly, and so his question was unan
swered. Pretty Josie was dividing her at
tention between a new customer and the
strange scene beside her, and between anger
and mortification she looked in no need of
help from rouge as she tossed her head and
muttered various uncorteous remarks in re
gard to "Amy Egbert and her beau. "
Uncle Abel held the bonnet a while longer
quite patiently, but at last despaired of the
interview being ended, so he coughed, and
then he said :
"I'll take the bunnit. Twenty dollars is
a good deal, but Betsey's worth it, ain't she
John need not have started so, or said,
"Very," which wasn't a sensible answer at
all ; but Uncle Abel laughed a little to him
self, and said softly: "Oh, boys will be
boys I" He was obliged to tell Miss Egbert
the directions over twice, too, and felt quite
uneasy lest it should not arrive at his hotel
in time. . .
Outside the door John turned to leave
his Uncle and looked as shy as a girl, as he
said : "It's all right, Uncle Abel. You've
found a new bonnet, and I've found a-an old
Uncle Abel . held his hand fast, and
looked a moment without speaking, in John's
face, in a wistful way, then said, looking in
the young man's eyes, "She's a motherless
"Uncle Abel l".And. John turned angrily
away, or would have done so, if the detain
ing hand had not stopped him with a grasp
which sixty years had not weakened, "Look
here, my boy, I meant no offense. None of
my blood turn villains," he added proudly;
"but you see she's young and purty and for
lorn, and,, maybe, if you see too much of
her, ,he might get to thinkin' more of you
than would be good for her, and it you ain't
in earnest I guess 'twould break her heart
Shake hands with your old Uncle, my boy,
I meant no harm, but I promised 'Liza,
when she was en her dyin' bed, that I would
alias try to give you good advice, and. the
last words a' most that she spoke, says she,
J Abel, watch over my boy. '
"My dear, kind Uncle? I thank you in
swept down the length of the room,
you like it?"
"Wa'al it's kind a purty, but it's
deed I do for all your kindness, but I could
not bear to think that you should misjudge
me. i Knew Amy long ago, when her pa
rents were both living, and she had all that
wealth could give her. I loved her then in
a' quiet way, but I was too poor to tell her
so. Then came reverses and death, and in
her poverty and Dride the girl hid herself
from me resolutely until now. She tried to
earn her bread by her accomplishments but
tailed, and gladly took this means to do so.
Now I can win her for mv wife. I shal
bring Mrs. John Dare to see you, some fine
day thi3 summer may I, Uncle Abel ?"
So they parted, and the passers-by little
dreamed ot all that band-grasp spoke.
Wa al, wa al, if things don t turn out
queer !" soliloquized Uncle Abel, home
ward bound, with a band-box safely placed
on the seat before him. "To think how
near I came to gettin' one of them gipseys
ror uetsey. w hy, she would have laughed
a week about it. And then to think that
painted picter of a girl was making game
of me all the while. And then the other
one, with her gentle way, taking the trouble
to tell a stupid old fellow like me what was
tne ngnt tnmg to Duy. l guess she would
make our John a nice wife ; and after Bet
sey and me have passed away there'll be a
nice bit of property comin' to John, and
that 11 help him on.
How pleased Aunt Betsey was, to be sure,
when the old man gave her the new bonnet.
How "fair and young" she looked in the
fresh ribbons and soft blond around her face.
And how she laughed at the idea of wearing
one ot them dish-covers on her head.
J ust when the couutry was in its June
glory John Dare brought his bride to the
farm-house where he had spent so many
childish hours, and he led her to all the fa
miliar spots, from the wier in the brook to
the grave by the orchard. But as long as
straw and ribbon may endure to keep them
both in mind how John Dare found his wife,
they tell the story of the time when Uncle
Abel bought Betsey's bonnet.
Railways are symbolical of modern civili
zation. No other contrivance is, to any
thing like so high a degree. The Indians
have been aroused by what they regard as the
intruMon of two railway lines into t eir nnal
retreat. Rightly enough, they infer that
the completion of these two lines will enee-
dily make an end ot the primitive tartar
ism. The present gathering of the tribes.
in warlike array, has for its object the- dis
persion of the railway builders and the-per-
manent frustration or the enterprises. Ut
course, such ettorts come in consequence or
inadequately comprehending the resouroes
of the white race. But it seems probable
that the work on the lines may be retarded
during the summer by the forays of the sav
In St.- Louis a man who had been false to
his wife, with whom he had lived twenty-
four years, in a fit of repentance resolved to
marry her over again, although not di
vorced. The ceremony was said, using
her maiden name. His enemy not under
standing the state of affairs, arrested him
tor bigamy, and imprisoned him. The
Judge was sick and he could not be released,
and so celebrated his silver wedding by a
few days in the lock up.-
A gentleman who wanted to' make a tak
ing speech to a Sunday School, thought he
would adopt the colloquial btyle, and this is
what happened : "Now, boys, what does a
man want when he goes a fishing?" A shrill
voice ia the crowd went directly to the point
with "Wants a bite."
"I say, Jones, how is it that your wife
dresses so magnificently, and you always ap
pear out at the elbow ?" Jones (impress
ively and significantly) "You see, Thomp
son, my wife dresses according to the Ga
zette of Fashion and I dress according to
my Ledger." .

To him straightway Neal made answer,
"When you pay the renian bonds," and
then his petals closed.

Starvation on the Oars.
The Dayton (O.) Journal of June 1, says:
lesterday morning a family of Germans,
consisting of a man and his wite and three
children, evidently in very poor circumstan
ces, arrived here on the Atlantic and Great
Western train, en route for Cincinnati, to
which place they had secured transportation
trom New York. As the train failed to
connect with the forenoon train on the Cin
cinnati, Hamilton and Dayton road,the fam
ily was obliged to lay over here for the eve
For a while the poor family remained on
the platform, until some one invited them
to go into the ladies' room and be seated.
The people seemed to shrink from observa
tion, and were grouped together in one cor
ner of the room. The woman was holding
an infant in her arms, and a lady who hap
pened to pass close to her noticed that it
looked like a corpse, and, as she could speak
the German language, she asked the poor
woman what was the matter with her child.
At this question the poor woman burst into
uncontrollable lamentation, declaring that
her child was dead.
As soon as the grief-stricken mother could
partially control herself, she informed the
lady that they were very poor ; that they
had just means enough to get to New York
and purchase a second class ticket to Cincin
nati, where they had friends ; that they had
no money to purchase food, and were afraid
to ask anybody for something to eat ; and
that they had suffered in silence, without a
morsel of food for themselves or children
from the time they left New York till they
reached this city.
About three hours before they reached
here their babe a child about a year old
died from starvation ! And that poor, fctar:
ving mother carried her child upon her bo
som, hoping to reach their friends in Cin
cinnati before they should all be starved.
The countenances of the man and wifa
bore painful evidence of the progress of star
vation, and their uncomplaining children
looked little better than the cropse of the
little sufferer that had just passed through
the gate of death into the land of plenty.
The moment the terrible condition of this
poor family was made known, they found
friends in everybody around them. The
mother was instantly relieved of her dead
babe, and while a messenger was dispatched
for au uudcitakor, tb surviving members
of the sorrowing family were taken to the
waiting room in the depot, and given all
they could eat. By-standers tell us that
the scene in the depot, when the suffering
mother gave vent to her pent up grief, was
one ot the most anecting and barrowm,
they ever witnessed. Every one was affect
ed to tears.
Mr. Richard Lane, the Infirmary Direct
or, took charge ot the interment ot the
child; and Mr. Snyder, the clever bagfiage
master, collected some : twenty-live dollars
from the bv-standers. and presented it to
the poor mnn, who was utterly overwhelmed
by this un looked for generosity.
lhe child was buried yesterday afternoon
and the bereaved familv, after being made
as comfortable as possible, were sent on by
the evenmg tram to their friends in Cincm
nan. a word about their situation at any
pom; on the route would have secured these
suffering people all the food they desired
put tney were actually so dimdent among
strangers that they would all have starved
to death before they would have made their
situation known or asked tor food.
