THE DEUNHEED'S BSE AM.
Foity'year.? ago I came to New York. It
wa- a little r-iry wben , compared with its
jrr.-ent proportions, Park Place, Murray,

and a beauiifui child.

"Was I wife, I am going to ask you a
plain question, and I wart a plain answer.
Was I drunk vhen I called on Mrs. "White?"
"Her husband said you wre," came the
My wife spoke these words in a very sad
tone, and ic called to my mind the reference
to her in the conversation I had overheard.
Yes, her very appearance was sufficient to
convince me that she was really sinking un
der something. Was it tho unhappines I
gave her because I was a drunkard?
I didn't make any promises then, but I
thought them. Perhaps I might have
spoken them, but at that moment a servant
called at my study, and informed me that a
Door woman was at the door and wished to
see the doctor.
It was really a relief to me to have one
person call, and I went to see what the wo
man wanted. She was a wretched looking
creature, pole and emaciated, although there
was no appearanae of intemperance about
her. I asked her what she required, and
she replied :
"Sure, me husband has fell through the
trap over the big distillery', and broke his
leg all to pieces"
I considered myself a capital surgeon, and
it occurred to me at once that amputation
might be necessary. So I told the woman
to wait a moment, an 1 I would accompany
her. I went to U13' room, procured my in
struments, and then proceeded to the resi
dence of the injured man,
It was located on Pearl street, then the
most wretched in the city, and I felt a ter
rible sensation come over me as I mounted
the rickety stairs, through filth and stench,
into a little attic room. As wj entered the
apartment the poor woman said to me :
"I hope you'll excuse us, sur, but we
didn't come to this until me husband took
to drink an neglected his work. 1 can t
support the children alone."
Here wis another blow to me. I went in
made an examination of the broken limb,
and found sure that it would have to come off.
I infertned the woman that this was the only
way to save his life, and she begged me not
to let him die, as she could not live with
Was it possible ? Could she love that
brutalized creature? He was lying perfect
ly' unconscious, and the filth around him
actually turned me tick. But I must do
something for him, and yet I feared to at
tempt the job alone. I told the woman that
I would procure assistance, and return in a
few moments, and then entered the street.
I had intended to go for another doctor, but
as I began to think about it, I feared to do
so, lest every one should refuse to work
My hands were trembling now, for the ef
fect of the liquor I had drank had nearly
worn off. I thought perhaps a glass of
brandy would steady my nerves, and so I
entered a saloon and took, one, two, three.
.My hand began to be steadier, and I felt a
greater confidence in myself.
The bar kept at the K igle was one of the
most fashionable down town, and the brandy
wu- excellent. So I drank again and again.
Now a little rest would do me good, and I
seated myself in an easy chair in one eorner
of the room.
After sitting quiet for fifteen minutes, I
felt that I was ready to perform my work,
and that I could do it alone. I arose and
returned to the hovel. I rolled up ruy
rdeeves and began.
The wife stood weeping at my side, but I
heeded her not. The children trembled
with fright, but it did not touch my heart.
I handled the keen knife, and I used the
saw, and that limb was off.
Buthorrows! in gathering up the arter
ies I could not End the main one. I cut the
leg again and again, and still the artery re
ceded from me. He is bleeding to death,
and as he gradually grew paler his consci
ousness returned. He opened his great
glariug eyas and looked full into mine.
"Have you not seen the cursed effect of rum
often enough to know better then to bring
a drunken doctor here to perform such a
work as this? He has murdered me."
The wife began to shriek in the most ter
rible manner, and the cry was taken up by
the children, and their wailings rent my
"I'll save him !"' I cried ; "I'll save him
yet! For Heaven's sake cease your cries,
or you will have a crowd of people here, and
I ian do nothing Be silent, and within
five minutes I will return with another
I attempted to pass from the room, but I
was compelled to wade ankle deep in the
blood. 1 found that my clothing was com
pletely saturated with the crimson. I rush
ed frantically into the street, and toward
the residence of Dr. Brown.
"For God's sake," I cried, as I met the
doctor, "come with me, quick ! I have at
tempted the amputation of a man's leg, and
I need assistance."
liYou must attend to your own cases,"
coolly replied the doctor.
"But the man will bleed to death," 1
' His blood be upon your head. I cannot
compromise myself by any connection with
such as you."
"Then go alone and save the man. I will
simply show you the way."
'I will ; for it has been my province for
a long time to save where you have nearly
The doctor followed me from his house to
the hovel of the injured man. But when I
reached it, what was my horror to see a
large crowd of people gathered outside of
the door. The wife was in the centre of the
circle, nad she . was tearing her hair and
shrieking terribly. Her little ones were
clinging to her and moanidg most piteously.
Presently the eyes of the frantic woman
fell upon rue. She sprang towards me,
"He's dead ! he's dead ! and you are the
I was paralized. I turned to fly, but
could not I was rivited to the spot. Then
there came a general murmuring from the
crowd. It became louder and louder, and
finally a voice exclaimed :
"Hang the murderer."
Those words were repeated by others, and
then one universal cry rent the air :
"Hang the murderer ! Hang the mur
The mass began to swing to and fro, and
then made a rush for me. They seized me,
and dragged me toward a distant tree, while
their howlings were terrible to hear.
Then a rope was procured, placed about
my neck, thrown over a limb, and I was
drawn up. I suffered most terrible agony,
and it appeared to me that I hung there for
hours. I tried to die but could not.
At length I heard the crowd below me
"He's dead -row. We can take him
down and bury him."
I was lowered and crowded into a narrow
box. I tried to tell them that I was not
dead, but I could neither move nor speak,
although uiy senses were in no way im
parted. Then I heard the men digging the earth.
I knew they were making my grave. This
completed, the box which contained me was
rolled in it. Then the earth began to rattle
down upon me.
My God, I could not be buried alive. I
put forth all my strength. I struggled
fearfully, and my powers returned to me.
I bursted from my confinement, and sprang
out of the grave with a wild cry. Then I
opened my eyes and looked around upon the
Was it possible ? I was still in the bar
of the Eagle saloon, aud had just leaped
from the chair where I bad been sleeping.
A dozen men were looking at me, some in
wonder, and some smiling, as the thorough
ly understood the case.
I.had drank too moch on entering the
saloon, seated myself in an easy chair, and
had the drunkard's dream. But it was so
terribly real that I could scarcely believe it
not to be such. Fright, however, had thor
oughly sobered me.
I went at once to Dr. Brown and humbly
stated the case, asking him to assist me.
He consented, and we both repaired to the
hovel. I shuddered as I entered, but the
i'.ihuman man was lying as had left him.
We performed our work, ond the man re
covered, but with the loss of a leg.
I returned home with a fixed purpose in
my mind. I did not tell my wife my dream,
but I pressed her to my heart, ond promised
her that I never would drink again. She
wept, but they were tears ef joy. Aud I
have kept my promise faithfull.
The Wrong Stuff.
An old campaigner sends us the follow
ing incident ot camp life :
During the Fredericksburg campaign, our
regiment took up its quarters in a building
known Stafford Court-House ; and, as we
expected to stay therefor some time, most of
us wrote home to our friends for those ever
welcome supplies in the shape of boxes of
po iltry, preserves, sweetmeats, and other
items not found in the soldier's regular ra
tions. Among those who wrote in this wise
was a young Pennsylvania!!, by name Wil
Iiam A , the son of pious parents who
had brought him up in the way he ought to
But soon after joining uc, he strayed from
it by several side-tracks one of them being
the bad habit of a too great fondness for
Iu writing home, among other things he
requested should be sent to him, was a few
bottles of the best Bourbon "eyewater,
meaning of course Bourbon whiskey. His
patents supposing him to be suffering from
sore eyes, s'mt him several vials of the best
eyewash they could procure, tliough they
could not get any that bore the Iable "Bour
bon." When the box came, he took it into his
tent, and called in a number of his com
rades promising each a glass of the Bour
bon. They all gathered around the box ;
which was opened, disclosing a fine array of
turkeys, chickens, jars of pickles and pre
serves, and other like nicknacks. Aud when
the bottom was at length reached, and no
bottles appeared, except several small vials
labled "Kye-water," something very like a
"swear" came from the lips of the disap
pointed soldier, that was chorused by a
loud explosion of laughter from his cotn
rads, who from that hout knew him by no
other name than "William Eyewater."
"Well, George," asked a friend of a
young lawyer who bad been admitted about
a year, "how do you like your new profes
sion r Ihe reply was accompanied by a
brief sigh to suit the occasion : "My pro
fession is much better than my practice."
"Does my son William, that's in the
army, get plenty to eat?" said an old lady
to a recruiting sergeant, one day. He sees
plenty," was the laconio reply. "Bless his
heart, then, I know he'll have it if he can
see it; he always would at home."
The author of the following original co
nundrum is now confined in a calico straight
jacket, his feet in a wooden box, and his
head in a honeycomb poultice : "When is
a lover justified in calling his sweetheart
lioney f When she is t-loved,"
LUCK MAY LIE IN A PIN.
Now 1 am going to tell a story about
All of us are acquainted with luck ; there
are those who see her all the time, some on
ly at certain times of the year, others only
one single day yes there even people who
only see luck once in tbeir lifetime, but all
of us do not see her.
I suppose that I need not tell you that
when our Lord sends a little childjliere, he
lays in a mothers Up. This may happen in
a rich man's castle, or in a working man's
nicely ordered room. But then it may hap
pen, instead, in an open market place, where
the cold wind blows.
But whst not every one of you docs know,
and yet is really true, is that our Lord when
he places a child here, also sends along with
it its good luck, which, however, is never
placed near by, but is hidden in some sot
in our globe, where we look for it least ;
yet it is always found at last, aud that is a
Luck was once placed in an apple; that
was for a man whose name was Newton.
The apple fell, and thus he found his luck.
If you do not know that story, ask some one
to tell it to you. We have another story to
tell a story about a pear.
There once lived a poor man, who was
born poor, and was poor when he married.
He was a turner by trade, and us ad to turn
umbrella handles and umbrella rings, but he
only earned enough money by this to live
from hand to mouth.
"I shall never fiud my luck," said he.
Now, this is a true story which really
happened. I could tell the country and the
place where the man lived, but that is of
no consequent. Tue rel and sour moun
tain ash berries blossomed around his house
and in his garden, as if thej were the choic
est fruit, and in the garden also stood the
pear tree, but it never had borne a pear, and
yet their luck was placed in an invisible
One night the wind blew terribly. In
Avize men said the great Billing boulder
was lifted up from the side of the road, and
thrown down like a lump of clay, and so it
was not at all wonderful that a big branch
should have been broken from the pear tree.
The branch was taken into the workshop,
and the man turned out of it, just for fun,
a big pear, and then several very small
"The tree shall bear pears once at least,"
he said, and gave them to his children to
There are some things that are necessi-
ies in life, and among. these, most certainly
in wet countries, are umbrellas. Now the
whole family had only one for general use.
When the wind blew very lutrd, the urubrel
la would turn over ; but the man quickly
mended it again that was in his trade.
Wi'h the button aud string that kept the
umbrella together, it went worse, it would
always break too soon, just as one was fold
ing the umbrella up.
Oue day, when the button had broken
again, and the man hunted in vain for it on
the floor, he happened to get hold of one of
the smallest pears which he had turned, and
had given to the children to play with.
"I canuot find the button," said the man,
"but this little thing will answer." He
puiled a sinnll cord through it, and the little
pear fided the place of the broken button
beautifully; it was exactly right, and form
ed the best of fasteners. The next time that
he had to send umbrella handles and rings
to the capital, he added to the nuiube a few
of the small wooden pears that he had turn
ed. They were fastened to a few umbrellas
which were sent with a thousand others to
America. The have a quick understanding
there ot what is of use. The little pear was
soon found to bold best, aud the umbrella
uierchaut that all the umbrellas to be sent
to him after that should be fastened with
the little pear. Large orders were to be
supplied, thousands of pears to be made;
woodeu pears on all umbrellas, and our man
was kept busy at work. He turned and
turned ; the whole pear tree was used up
for little wooded pears, which brought
shillings that grew into dollars.
"In that pear tree my. luck was placed,"
said the man ; and soon after he had a great
workshop aud plenty of men and boys to
help him. Now he was all the time in good
humor, and often used to say, "Luck may
lie in a pin."
So also says he who tells the story ; and
you should know that it is true, aud is a
proverb in Denmark, that if you put a white
pin in your mouth, you will be invisible,
but it must be the right sort of a pin one
given by our Lord. I have had one of them ;
and whenever I come to America, the land
of the New World, which is so far off, yet
so near me, I shall always carry that pin with
me. I can send my greeting over in a few
minutes; the ocean rolls over to its shores,
there the wiud blows ; any day I can be
there when my stoties are read, and perhaps
see the glittering gold ; receive the ringing
gold -the gold the gold that is the beat of
all, which shines in the eyes of children, and
somes ringing from the lips of their parents.
I am in the very room with my friend and
yet I am invisible. I have the white pin
in my mouth.
Yes, luck may He in a pin.
Everv vouuc man is eagerly asking the
best way ot getting on in life. The Bible
gives a very brief answer to the question :
alk in the way ot good men, and keep
the paths of the righteous." Many books
of advice and direction have been written,
but that is the gist of them alL
What is always offered at cost ? The law.
Kiss Him for His Mother.
Tt was a very pretty and pious conceit of
that dear old lady to kiss the youth for his
mother. So forcibly has it appealed to pop
ular admiration since, that no inconsidera
ble number of young men have had the
same affectionate caress bestowed on them
out of respect for that same venerable rela
tive. A striking example of this was af
forded a few evenings since by a young lady
who enjoys the undivided affections of a
handsome down town clerk. It so happen
ed that, some weeks ago, his mother died.
His heart wa consoled in this great be
reavement by the affectionate sympathy of
his employer's fascinating daughter. It is
not strange that this affection at last ripened
into love. The parents noted and approved
their daughters choice, but wisely kept their
own counsel. The Interesting relations.
however, were destined to come to light in
a way they lea-t exj e ted. One evening the
young couple were enjoying a pleasant tete-
a tete in a secluded nook of the parlor.
The old gentL'uian happened, by the . merest
accident, to step in and take a seat unob
served by the young people. Suddeuly his
attention was arrested by one of those prj
longed luxurious kisses which only lovers
"What noise is that?'' the parent loudly
Silence like death.
'"I say.Julia.what noise was :hat ?"
"What are you doing there?"
"Vi'ho are you kissing there?"
"Only only William, sir ; bis mother's
dead, you know and and I thought it
wouldn't be wrong to kiss him for her, you
know, sir !"
"Humph 1" and the old gentleman took
his leave, doubtless thinking how fortunate
the deceased lady was to be so affectionate
Life aud Death.
Life is but Death's vestibule, and our pil
grimage on earth is but a journey to the
grave, the pulse that preserves our being
beatS our dead march, and the blood which
circulates our life is floating it onward to
the depths of death. To-day we see our
friends in health ; to morrow we hear of
their decease. We clrsped the hand of the
strong man but yesterday, and to day we
close his eyes. We rode in a chariot of
comfort but an hour ago, and in a few more
hours the last black chariot must convey us
to the home of all the living. Oh, how
closely allied to life is death ! Tho lamb
that sporteth in the field must soon feel the
knife. The ox that is in the pasture is fat
tening for th slaughter. Trees do but grow
that they may be felled. Yes, and greater
things than these feel death. Empires rise
and flourish, they flourish but to decay.they
rise but to fall. x
How often wo take up a volume of histo
ry and read of the rise and fall of empires?
We hear of the coronation and death of
kings. Death is the black servant who rides
behind the chariot of life. See life and
death is close behind it Death reaches far
throughout this world and has stamped ter
rcstial things with the broad arrows of the
grave. Stars die, mayhnps, it is said that
conflagrations have been afar off in the ether
and astronomers have marked the funer
als of other worlds the decay of those
mighty orbs that we have imagined set for
ever in sockets of silver to glisten as the
lamps of eternity. Blessed be God there is
one place where death is not life's brother,
where life reigns alone, and 'to live' is not
the first syllable which is to bo followed bv
the next, 'to die. There is a land where
deathknclls are never tolled, where winding
sheets are never woven, where graves are
never dug. Blest land beyond the skies.
To reach it we must die.
The Selfish Man.
What business a man has, in this world
to be selfish, in the strict sense of that word,
we do not exactly see ; for if we were to
give him credit for all he fancies himself to
be, he would be no more than a very small
thing ainang a vast multitude ofother small
things so completely mixed up and huddled
together that it is a dificulty at times to dis
tinguish one from the other. The airs
which some men put on in the intercourse
with others, are infinitely disgusting, to say
the least of lliein, and when we see one
holding himself so far above his fellows and
trying to ape a greatness which he cannot
even approach we are inclined to think that
he is trying to follow the example of honest
Dogberry and write himself down as an ass.
Such is the irrcsistable conclusion and such
is the fact. He could save himself the trouble
of writing, however, for it is already written
and the animal appears in corpus, with its
long ears, familiar bray and ambling gait.
It is a noticeable fact that the selfish self
opinionated man, who thinks he knows a
great deal more than others, is, when fully
fathomed, the most shallow and soft brain
ed of all. The world knows it and shrewd
men observe it, but he does not, and hence
the ridiculous figure he displays among
them; scarcely less laughable and peculiar
than that of the renowned Don Quixotte in
his famous adventures in defense of his
Dulceinea. When placed along side of reil
merit he dwindles into nothing. We have
such men in Clearfield, and we presume,
that they can be found all over the world.
