LIFE 13 WHAT WE MAZE IT.
Let's often talk of nobis deeds,
And rarer of the bail enes,
And sing about oar happy days.
And not about the sad ones.
TVe were not made to fret and sigh,
And when grief sleeps to wake it;
Bright happiness is standing by
This life is what we make it.
Let's find the sunny side of men,
Or be believers in It ;
A. light there is in every soul
That takes the pains to win it.
Ob ! there's a slumbering good in all,
And we perchance may wake it;
Our hands contain the magic wand
This lifo is what we make it.
Than here's to those whose loving hearts,
Shed joy and light about them !
Thanks be to them fer countle.s gems
We ne'er had known without them.
Oh ! this should be a happy world
To all who may partake it;
The lault's our own if it is not
This life is what we make it.
TflE PARSIMONIOUS CLEEZ.
"Wesson," said Mr. Dayton to one of his
clerks a-; they were alone in the spacious
counting room which was attached to the
hrge itore of which Mr. Day'.on was pro
frit-tor, "give me leave to say that I don't
think your dres sufficiently genteel to ap
pear as clerk, in a fashionable store."
A deep biu.-h suffused the face of the
vounc man, and in spite of his endeavor to
rpros it, a tear glisicaed iu his full, Hack
"Did I not know your salary wa3 suffi
cient to procure more geutcel habiliments,
I would increase it."
"My salary is amply laree, sir," replied
Vestcn, with a mortified air, but with that
proud independence ef feeling, of which
even poverty ha J not been able to deprive
"Oblige me, then, by ' changing jour ap
j are!, and prccentinfc a different appear
anoe in the future. You are wanted in I he
More." Weston turned and left his eni-iht-T.
who muttered as he took up his
1'iI'iT, "How I detest these parsimonious
fd!uw." Mr. Layton was a widower, and
hid hut one child, a daughter, who was the
pride of his declining years. She was sood
an angel, and beiutiful as ;he was good.
She was simple in her taste and appear
ance. Such was Laura Dayton when Weston
May fir.-t became an inmate of her father's
lwu-c and what wonder is it that he tcon
irariied to love her with an ardent affection.
Their tongues neer gave utterance to what
they fe't, but the language of their eyes
ouMnotle mistaken. Weston nas the
v. ry sou! ot honor, and although he per.
c:ivf J n il h pleasure that he was not dis
tasteful to her, still he felt that he must
n.jner ths passion that glowed in his own
"1 iiia-t not win her heart," he paid to
h:m"!f; "I am penniless, and her father
'ill never consent to our union." Thus he
rea-nnfj. and thus he manfully endeavored
t.)ul..ne what he considered an ill fated
pavi"ii. Laura had many suitors, and some
were worthy of her ; but che refused them
with decisive, yet gentle firmness.
Her father wondered at her conduct but
r'uM not strive to alter her inclination.
He was in the decline t.f life and wished to
se; her happily settled ere he departed from
this world. It was not long before he sur
mej that young May was the cause of her
indifference to others. The pleasure she
to 4 in hearing him praised, the blush
wr.seli mantled her face when their eyes met,
t rved to convince the old gentleman that
tiiey took more than common interest' in
ea.'h other. He forbore to make nny re
nwk upon the subject, and was not so dis
p!ea3i at the thought as Weston imagined
be would he.
W i-ston May had now been three years in
Lis erjplor. Mr. Dayton ki cw nothing of
Lis fati'ily ; tut his strict integrity, good
n.orals ar,d pleasing manners conspired in
ii:si.ini; him esteem Weston more highly.
He pV-e I unbounded confidence iu him aud
as very proud of bim. He wished him to
'"he as well as others, and had often
wondered at the scantiness of his wardrobe;
for al'iiouch Wcv.on dresred with the most
"upu!oj.s rsard to neatness, his clothes
JS almost threadbare, which Mr. Daytoo
'hvj-ht r receded from a niggardly dispo
snd accordingly he addressed hixn
P-'n :!:.- subject as before related.
S ' ?ker this conversation Mr. Dayton
'r-:t hoi:,e in business. As he was riding
i'to a pretty little village, he alighted
at tiie 't.or ot a cottage an 1 requested a
(hint iA water. The mistress, with an ease
in J politeness which told that she had not
a.wij, been an humble cottager.inrited him
to inter. Hecoruplied, and a scene of neat
Besi an 1 poverty met his gaze, such as he
til never before witnessed. The furniture
cwsnrip of nothing more than was actual
it f.e.'euiry, was so clean that it cast an air
fcomf)rt all around. A venerable old
ttiri sat by the window with his staff in his
Land. His clothes were whole, but they
Homed a counterpart of Joseph's coat of
'1 his is your father, I presume," said
-je addressing her.
"It is, sir."
''He seems quite aged."
'He is in his eighty-third year, and has
tnrvived all his children except myself."
'Have you always resided here ?'

cat endorsing ruined him and we were re
used to this. He soon after died, and two
oi my children followed him."
''Have you any children living ?"
"One, sir, who is my only support. My
own health is so feeble that I cannot do
much, and father being blind and deaf,
needs a great deal of attention. My son
will not tell me how much his salary is, but
I am sure he sends me nearly all of it."
"Then he is not at home?"
"No, sir, he is a clerk in New York."
"Indeed ! Pray, what is his name?"
"Weston May ! Is it possible 1 Why he
is my clerk. I left him in charge of my
store only two weeks ago."
Explanations followed, and Mr. Dayton
soon left, promising to call some other
"Noble fellow," Baid he mentally, as" he
was riding along and ruminating upon the
call. "Noble fellow, I believe he loves my
girl, and he may have her, and part of my
mouey, too. Let me see," and he fell into
a reverie ; and by the time he reached home
he formed a plan he determined to execute.
How it terminated we shall see. Full of
his new plan he entered the breakfast room
where Laura was waiting his appearance.
"So Weston is going to England."
"Sir," said Laura, dropping her coffee
cup, "goinc to England?"
"To be sure, what of it, child?"
"Nothing only 1 ws shall be rather
lonesome," replied she, vainly endeavoring
to suppress her tears.
"Come, come, Laura, tell me, do you
love Weston? You never deceived me,
don't do it now."
"No, well, I I do love him most sin
cerely." "I thought so," replied fie, as he left the
"Weston," said he, as he entered the
store, "you expect to go iuto the country,
shortly, don't you?"
"Yes, sir, in about two weeks."
"If it would not be inconvenient, I wish
you would defer it a few woeks longer,"
said Mr. Dayton.
"I will, sir, with pleasure, if it will oblige
"It will greatly oblige me, for Laura is
to be married in about six weeks, and I
wish you would attend the wedding."
"Laura married I" said Weston, starting
as if he had been shot.
' 'To Le sure. What ails i he boy ?' '
"Nothing, sir ; only it was rather sudden
"It is rather sudden ; but I am an old
man, and wish her to have a protector be
fore I die. I am glad you can stay to the
"Indeed, sir, I cannot stay." said Wes
ton, forgetting what he had just said.
' A ou cannot! Why, you just now said
"Yea air ; but my business requires my
presence, aud I must go."
"But you said you would with pleasure."
''Command tne iu anything else, bat iu
this I cannot oblige you."
"Weston, tell me frankly, do you love my
"Sir !" Westcu seemed like cne waking
from a dream.
"Do you love my girl?"
"I do sir."
"Will you give me ycur mother for her?"
Mr. Dayton repeated the incident already
related, and iu conclusion said :
"And now, my boy, I have written to
your mother, and offered myself, and she
has accepted ; what have you to say?"
"That I am the happiest fellow on earth,
aud proud to call you father," replied the
young man with a joyful face.
A few wecKs after a double wedding took
place at Mr. Dayton's mansion, and soon
after a s:gn went over a certain store, bear
ing the inscription of "Dayton & Co."
Young man, you may learn from this
that it is not fine clothes that will win for
you the esteem ot those around you.
An Anecdote With a moral. A young
lady friend of ours met in company a young
gentleman who had an excellent opinion of
himself. During conversation he introduced
the snl ject of matrimony, and expatiated
at length upon the kind of wife he expected
to marry ; that is, if ever he should take
the decisive step. The honored lady must
be wealthy, beautiful, accomplished, amia
ble, etc., etc. His listener quietly waited
until he ended, and then completely con
founded him by asking iu the coolest pos
sible manner: "And pray, sir what have
you to offer in return for all this?" The
young man stammered, reddened a little, and
An editor who has been lately married, in

violet betrays itself by its odor, so will love,
however carefully concealed, discover itself
by impalpable emanations from the heart

You might a well talk about his liver con
structing a chickeu-coop, or his alimentary
canal developing into a wood-shed. Our
druggists sell a kind of vermifuge that will
set that editor on his pins again. It goes
right to the afflicted spot, and no fooling. If
he takes a bottle or two he may recover.
A Model Speech. An Ohio member of
a School Board delivered the following speech

for to that is, to make a motion, which is
as follows : Resolved, That there are no need
to build such costive school houses as some
of this ere board is proposin to 'rect. No,
Mr. Cheerinan.I'm 'posed to spendin money
for more housen. The old ones are pretty
good yet. and for to go for to build a pretty
slick house which will cost $10,000, or more
yet, its all wasted."

The disobedient Squirrel,
"Now," said Mrs. Grey Squirrel, as she
tucked the mots and leaves around her two
young squirrels, "do you keep still. Don't
you stir out of bed till we eome back."
"Where are you going V said one of the
little squirrel"., whom we shall call Hetty.
"We are going to a hickory grove to store
away some nuts for winter. If you are not
good little squirrels, you will not get any of
"May we not look out of the hole ?"
The hols was an opening made from the
outside of the tree to a hollow within it. It
was made by a red-capped wood-pecker in
search of insects for food. The hollow fur
nished ample room for the squirrels; the
hole was the door.
"May we not look out of the hole?" said
"No you must not go to the hole," said
Mrs. Grey Squirrel. "If you so to the hole,
you wi 11 go out on the limbs of the tree,
some sportsman may see you and shoot
"What is a sportsman?" said the other
young; squirrel whom we shall call Harry.
A sportsman Li a creature who has two
legs, and who takes pleasure in killing birds
and squirrels that never do him, or anybody
else, any harm."
"It must be a queer animal one that has
queer ideas of fun," said Harry.
"It would be fun for one to put some
buckshot into your jacket. Do you keep
out of his way."
"We shall never know anything," said
Hetty, if you always keep us shut up in
this dark place."
"You mind what t tell you, if you know
what is good for you."
"You arid father go out."
"We are old squirrels and know how to
take care of ourselves. Come," said she to
Mr. Grey Squirrel, "we must be going."
Mr. Grey Squirrel had been sitting on a
knot near the nest, and had spent part of
the time during which Mrs. Grey Squirrel
had been laying down the law to her chil
dren, in scratching his ears, first with one
hind foot and then with the other.
When the old ones were gone, the young
ones began to talk without much reserve
just as little boys and girls are apt to do in
"I think," said Hetty, "that it is too
bad to keep us shut up here all the time."
"We are not kept shut up here all the
time," said Harry, "don't you remember
what a nice time we had yesterday when
moth-r took us out to give us a lesson in
jumping? Mother thinks it best for us to
stay la to-day?"
"I don't think father thinks so. lie
didn't say anything."
"He lets mother do the talking."
"I know he lets her do most of the talk
ing and the working, I wish I could have
seen him alone before he went, I believe he
would have let me look out of the hole."
Sometimes girls whe n their mother has
refused them permission to do a thing, go
and get permission of their father, but squir
rels ought not to follow bad examples.
"I guess," said Harry, "we had better go
to sleep. The time never seems long when
one is asleep." So saying, he put his fore
paw over his ears, and closed his eyes and
was soon fast asleep.
"Harry is asleep, mother is away, and
father is willing, I think I will take a look
out of the hole."
Something seemed to whisper, "your
mother told you to keep stilL"
"Yes but father did not tell me so. Be
sides it is not good for my health to be shut
up here all day. I shall die for want of air.
Parents ought not to wish to have their
Thus she went on trying to pcrsude her
self that it would be right for her to disobey
her mother. If you did not know that she
was a squirrel, you would think she was a
boy or girl ; for she did ju.st as boys and
girls often do when they begin to seek ex
cuses for disobeying their parents. They
almost always find some that they think
Hetty crawled carefully out of the nest
without disturbing Harry, and went to the
hole. "Oh, how beautiful everything
looks," said she ; "I think it is mean in
mother trying to keep us shut up in that
dark place. How fresh the air smells ! It
has done me a great deal of good already.
I think I will go out on that limb a little
way. I can get a better taste of the breeze."
So she went out on the limb. She brush
ed her hair with her fore paws, and shook
up her tail, and bent it gracefully, as she
thought, over berback, and looked around
wishing there were some squirrels there to
see her. It occurred . to her that her
mother might be jealous of her beauty, and
that that was her reasons for confining her
to the nest. While she was indulging these
pleasant thoughts she heard a sharp yelp or
barking at the foot of the tree. She looked
down and saw a dog there. He was look
ing up at her, and his eyes sparkled. "lie
admires me," thought she, "see how his
eyes shine ! His voice is not pleasant, but
he is plainly in earnest"
So he was, for he kept looking op and
barking, and jumping about, and putting
his fore feet up the trunk of the tree. "He
wants to come up and see me, but he can't
climb. I suppose he would like to have me
come down to him, but I can't think of such
a thing, especially as this is our fisrt meet
ing." So she ran out further on the limb to
show him how gracefully she could move.
This made him dance and bark the more
"What do you see, Jack?" said a man
with a gun in his hand. Jack sat down and
looked steadily at Hetty. "Oh ! I see. I'll
bring him down." He raised his gun and
fired, but at that instant, Hetty changed
her position. The man failed to bring her
down to Jack as he said he would, and only
brought down a small piece of her tail.
Jack watched it as it came down slowly
sniffed at it when it reached the ground,
and turned nway in disgust.
When Hetty felt the force of the shot
which struck her brush and heard the rattle
of other shot around her, she was frighten
ed as she was never frightened before. She
darted into the hole, and plunged into the
nest, and tried to cover heiselt up in the
moss and leaves. Of course she waked
Harry up, who cried out "Hallo, what is
the matter?" but he got no answer.
"Where have you been ?" still no answer.
"What has happened to your brush ?"
"You have been disobeying your mother,
and have not your pay for it. Anything
but a bobtailed squirrel ! '
He saw Hetty's breast heave. He pulled
aside the moss and opened her eyelids.
They were full of tears. He began to pitv
her. He said no more by way of reproach.
He began to think what he could do to sof
ten his mother's anger so that she would
not be too hard on poor Hetty. We will
leave him to his thoughts, and Hetty to her
remtne. Bright Side.
An item in one of our exchanges says "a
snake twenty feet long is frightening the
people of Rhode Island." We don't be
lieve a word of it. Such stories will do to
publish out in Kansas, but it is rather too
thin to be believed here ; because we know
that a snake of that length has no chance to
fool around in a State of that size. The only
thing it could do is to lay itself in a circle
round the edge, and even then it would
have to swallow part of its tail to prevent
over-lapping. It's of no use to start such
stories in a country where people study ge
ography. An exchange says : "And now we hear of
another man up in Elruira who has married
a girl while he already had three wives liv-
ine." It does seem strange how absent
minded some men are ! We should think a
fellow who bad three women on his hands
would never have a chance to forget about
it. But this singular forgetfulness seems to
seize them, no matter if they marry a whole
woman's rights' convention. Every man who
is married ought to tie a knot in his hand
kerchief so that he would remember about
it. It would save a great deal of trouble.
They hare a queer way of amusing them
selves in Auburn. A party catch a toad,

ing inside for some minutes and illuminate
the toad all over. It makes bim look just
like a jack o-'lantern. The effect is declared
to be comical.

A convention of delegates from the sev
eral counties of the State of Pennsylvania
of such persons only as are favotable to the
movement to secure minority representa
tion will be held at the city of Reading on
Wednesday, the 31st day of August next.at
eleven o'clock, a. m.
The convention will consist of two dele
gates for each representative in the lower
House of the . State Legislature, provided
that each county shall be represented by at
least one delegate.
By order of the Committee.
E. J. More, Chairman.
J. W. Wood, Secretary.
Allentown, Pa., July 17, 1870.
To th Repuhlicant of Pennsylvania:
In calling the attention of the Republi
cans of Pennsylvania to the convention to
meet at the city of Reading on the 31st dsy
of August next, we desire to present the
following considerations concerning its pur
poses: The Republicans of Pennsylvania who live
in counties in which they are in the minori
ty number one hundred and twenty-five
thousand voters, more than one third of the
whole Republican vote. They own and con
trol very large and varied and material in
terests, requiring the care and protection af
forded by wise and salutary laws.
That these people are wholly excluded from
participation in the management and control
of their respective county governments does
not in the least estrange their devotion to
Republican principles or cause them to abate
their efforts in behalf of the success of the
Republican party. They have just cause of
complaint, however, in the fact that, while
their political brethren are and for many
years have been in the ascendency in the
State Legislature, they are entirely unrep
resented, and by an unjust rule established
by a Republican majority, they are continu
ally subjected to unjust and oppressive laws,
while they arc persistently denied such leg
islation as their material interests require.
That so large a body of the people should
find themselves unrepresented in the law
making power is evidence of a defective fun
damental organization. A republican or
democratic form of government must of ne
cessity be representative, and to fill the re
ttHf suatft-of a roproaentativa averaruetit
it should be so framed that all the people,
as nearly as practicably can be, should have
a voice in the enactment of the laws which
govern them. If the government is so shap
ed that a majority of the people only are to
be represented, then it cannot be a free and
republican state, but a mere despotism of
one portion of the people over the other.
Such a government is despotic in principle
as well as in practice, for it can be of very
little consequence to the minorities whether
the laws which govern them are made by a
particular class of men, or by a single po
tentate, the minorities, who are excluded
from all voice or hearing in the law-making
branch of the government, bearing about
the same relation to the majorities as do sub
jects to an absolute monarchy.
According to the mode of representation,
as established by the constitution and laws
of Pennsylvania, more than one-third of her
voting and tax-paying citizens are excluded
from any voice or power in the law-making
department of the State, and the same re
mark will hold true as to the General Gov
ernment. We most respectfully and earnestly present
this subject to the candid and considerate at
tention of the voters of Pennsylvania, con
fidently relying on their intelligence and
sense of justice for a reform in a matter so
vital to the welfare and prosperity of the
whole people, and the safety and perpetuity
of the Government.
It is gratifying to observe that this move
ment is not without precedent in our own
country ; for the people of Illinois have quite
recently amended the organic law of that
State so that minorities will hereafter be
fairly represented, not only in the State Leg
islature, but also in all corporations author
ized by law. In other States the question
has been favorably entortained, and even in
some of the European governments it is dis
cussed bv the people, and, in one instance,
partially adopted, while learned political wri
ters everywhere have commended it to pub
In view of this subject, and because the
Republican minorities have suffered long
and much for want of a proper and equal
representation, the members of the Repub
lican State Central Committee held a meet
ing in the city of Philadelphia, on the 13th
inst, when it was resolved that a State Con
veotion of delegates from minority counties
be held at the city of Reading, on Wednes
day, the 31st day of August next, with the
view of concerting measures to aeure repre
sentation for minorities in all matters where
in they are interested, and consider other
matters interesting to minority counties.
It is firmly believed that if the people of
Pennsylvania were more generally and equal
ly represented in our State Legislature, that
the character of legislation would be Tastly
improved, while the danger of corruption
would be very materially lessened, if not al
The minority districts in Pennsylvania are
most earnestly enjoined to send able and in
fluential representatives to the convention
which will meet at the city of Reading, while
all other counties in the State are also re
quested to send delegates to assist in the ob
jects of the convention, in accordance with
the resolution passed at the meeting of the

B. T, Helvbolo, Druggist:
Deab Sir : I have been a sufferer, for war4
of twenty years, with gravel, bladder aad hvdaey
affections, daring which time I bav aead varies
medicinal preparations, and been aadr tfca treat
ment ef the most eminent Physicians, experien
cing but little relief
Having teen your prepare tie tit xtnivly ad
vertised, I eonsnlted with my family phyaMaa la
regard to osicg year Extract Bocha.
I did this because I had used all kind af ad
vertised remedies, and had found I hem worthless,
and some quit injurious ; in fact, I despaired ef
over getting well, and determined to as rea
dies hereafter anless I knew of th iagvaaltaats.
It was this that prompted me to use yourreeaedy.
Asyoa advertised that it was composed of kasha,
enbebs and juniper berries, it occurred to Etaaad
my physician as an excelleat combination, aad,
with his ad vie, after an examioatioa ef the arti
cle, end consulting again with th draggtot, I
concluded to try it. I commenced it aa a beat
eight months (go, at which tim I was aiasd
to my room From th frst bottle I was taih
ed and gratified at th benefioiai effect and after
using it three weeks was able to walk rat. t fait
much like writing you a full statement of sy a,
at that time, not thought my improvaaiaajt asighf
only be temporary, and therefor eoajcladed ta
defer and se if it would effect a perfect ar
knowing then it would be of greater valu ta job,
and more satisfactory to me.
lam now abl to report that a care is effected
after using the remedy for fir month.
I hare not ased any now for three raalhs, aaoV
feel as welt la all respects as I ever did.
Your Bncha being devoid ol any nplaaat
taste and odor, a nice tenisand invigorates af th
system. I do not meaa to be withoat H araavr
occasion may require its as ia such effeerleas.
