THE MUSIO OF THE SEA.
The gray, unresting sea,
Adown the bright and melting ehoro,
Broking in untold memory,
Makes music evermore.
Like as in cloistering pi!e.,
Rich bursts of massive sounds upswell ;
Ringing along dim-lighted aisles,
Wilh a spirit-trnncirg spell.
Soon the surf-white strand.
Chants of deep peal the sea-waves raise,
Like voices from a viewless land.
Hymning a hymn of praise.
By times in thunder notes.
The blooinfug billows shoreward sarge;
By times a silver laugh it float; ;
fly times a low. soft d irge.
Men change, and -'cease to be."'
And Frapires rise, and grow, and fall ;
But the weird music of the sea
L'ves and outlives tbeu: all.
The mystic song shall last
Till time itself no more shall be ;
Till seas and shores have pass'd
Lost in eternity.
WHAT CAME IN THE STORM.
"Mother dear, I cannot leave you. Iel
dc unpack my truuk am remain at home.
I can find some-thin.: to do here."
"Y'ou had Letter go. Ellen." The moth
er spoke the--.? words in a low tone, and
with her face turned away from her child ;
and it was plain to be seen she had been
Freaking as Le had schooled hor.-elf to
speak not from the impulses (if the heart,
but from the dictates ot nv-sity.
.Mary Anderson was a middle-aged wo
man, slight of frame ; from whoae pale,
care-worn face the traces of rare beauty
were not yet obliterated. Her daughter
resembled her, not only in form and Jeature,
but also in the expression of care and toil
which cast its shadows over her face. They
'ived alone in the humble cot, just out from
the village, and for years? their daily bread
had been earned by constant labor. Ellen
hail learned to work when a mere prattlinsr
child, and a she grew older her busy hands
found employment in many useful ways.
And now, at the age of fifteen, she had
made arrangements to go away from home
and work anions; strangors. Her few clothes
Y.fi been packed into a small trunk, and the
stage was to call for her the followiug morn
ing. It was in early winter and the day had
len cold and drear. A the gnn went
down the snow besran to fall, and by the
time the night had set in the storm was
" fehal! be lonesome and unhappy away
from you, my dear mother," said Ellen,
clinginjr to her parent's side.
"The storm hns set heavily upon your
spirits, niy child," returned Mrs. Anderson.
She arose and put more wood upon the fire
and when the blaze leaped once more up
the wide chimney she resumed her seat, and
for some minutes no further words were
Finally Ellen drew more closely to her
mother's side, and taking both her hands
she said :
''Mother, if I must leave in the morning,
you must tell me the story which you prom
ised I should hear before I went av.ij"
Mrs. Anderson clu.-ped her bands upon '
her bosom, and bowed hor head till her face
was hid in shadow.
"l'ear mother, I do not mean to pain you;
but 0, I must know something of my fath
er before t 0 out into the world. The
doubts r f uncertainty are more lerdensome
thai; a knowledge of the truth c:n possibly
be. It he even was gui'iy of "
"Hush, my child." and as the mother
thus spoke, she put forth her hand and
rested it upon her daughter's head. "I
will tell you this story. If I knew your
lather was d'-ril I would let the grave hide
the sad record ; but I do not know it."
The storm was increasing in fury, and as
the driven snow came piling about the win
dows, and the chill wind creeping through
cracks and crannies1, tho mother and child
drew nearer to the lire and thiidd:Ted as
some giant blast hurled its load of snow
u: on the quivering panes.
"(), Ellen, it was on such anight as this,
thirteeti years ago. The storm was ridirg
in the heavens and the whisu snow was driv
ing upon the earth ! It was on such a night
that your father kit us !
"Ellen, you are to go away to- lu.irrow,
nn l jbS we dor. i know what m;iy happen be
yond this I shail fell you all ahout your
lather. It w.-.a't in many 'vm-ds, darling,
and if . , ,3:,it you will fiuJ it might have
been wor. .
1 We aud twenty years ago (here was not
nnothe- v.u i.t i,KUl jn aJ this section so
generally liked !.r his social and generous
f'i::ht,cs as ras Thomas Anderson. He was
the ve-y picture of mtin'.y be:iuty,and a type
o! ali that was devoted. When I became
his wii I was t-iv'.c-i Ly my friends ; and I
certainly felt proud and hap.j y. Fur two
years our life passed in joy and sunshine and
not a cloud rested upon us. A little cherub
had come to ble.ss us, whom we named
Freddy ; :.n 1 I think Thomas held that lit
tle one in his heart as something heavenly
and sacred. But the boy died and sorrow
C3me upon us. My husband had always
been tree to drink wine when be pleased,
llu-ugh until now I had never seen him dis
guised in liquor.
"Freddy died in June and In September
following Thomas was thrown out of work
by the failure of the company who had etn
pl"jed him not only thrown out of work,
but he lost much money which be had in
vented in the concern. The long, cold win-
ter passed, and he had no work to do ; and
during that winter you were born. In the
spring he had work again on a large mill
which was being built in an adjoining town,
and through the warm months he was
steady at his work, though I could see that
the habit of drain drinking was growing
upon him. When the will was done he
was out of work again, and again through
the long winter he was out ot employment.
He sank very low very low! Summer
came again and he worked some ; but tho
evil habit was upon hitn so strong that he
became wholly its slave. One night just
such a night as this when the wind blew,
aud the driving snow filled and chilled the
air he came home sadly intoxicated. Rum
had made your father crazy, and he swore
because yoii were not in bed; and when you
began to cry he snatched you from my arms
I started forward to grasp you from him and
he struck me a blow that felled me to the
floor. How long I remained I do not knew.
Wheu I returned to consciousness I was up
on my bed ; you were upon my pillow by
my side, and some of the neighbors were
bending over me. The story was soon told.
Our neighbors heard the cry of my child
and came in, finding me udou the fl jor.with
my husband bending over me, trying to re
vive me, while the bf.be lay on the hearth.
Other help was. Grilled, and when it was
known that. I was out of danger, Thomas
left the house. They told me. darling, that
he bent over me and kissed nie kissed me
wice kissed, and groaned as though in
pain and anguish, and then he went away
he went out into the storm, Ellen, out into
just such a storm as this thirtaen yeahs
aga, and I have never seen him since."
"And you have never heard from him?"
"Never a word, my child."
"Don't cry so, mother."
"O, I cannot help If. Alas, my previous
child, tears are my only solace when this
subject occupies my mind."
"But you have forgiven him?"'
"Forgiven him ! how could I refrain !
lie kissed ire when he went away ! He was
broken down and lost. He struck his wife,
and dared not meet her again,"
"Perhaps," whispered Ellen, "He died
in the storm."
"I have thought it might be so, darling,
but his body was never found. Hark ! n hat
"I heard nothing, mother."
"There it is again! Tid vou net hoar
"It is the howling of the blast ; you are
"No.no,Ellen, I am not frightened; but
I may have been deceived. It is verv
"I would not put more wood on now,
mother. Let us go to bed."
"Not yet, darling. I shall not sleep
when this sto.m is howling. 0 it was on
just such a night as this. Hark! Did you
"l'es," replied the daughter starting to
her feet, "Somebody knocked at our door.
And there it is again. Let me go."
Thus speaking, Ellen took the candle and
Cent to the outer door ; but when she open
ed it the furious blast swept in, bringing a
cloud of snow and extinguishing the light.
As the moved bick, and brushing the snow
from her eyes, some one came into the en
try and closed the door, thus shutting out
"I am a stranjjer.iady." sai l a deep. gruff
voice; . "and I have lost my way in the

where it is warm."
"If you can give hie shelter for the night
I will rapay you well. I cannot go further
in this storm," he said.
"Good .sir." said Mrs. Anderson, moving
a chair hear the fire as she spoke, "yon are
f reely welcome. My daughter will take your
coat, .-,ir ; and when you are warm you shall
have refreshments. Our pay will be in the
knowledge lHat we have helped you. Are

"No, no, mndard, I am very murh fa

warmed his hands, "if a woman named An
derson lives hereabouts?"
"My name is Anderson, sir."
"Mrs. Mary Anderson?"
"Ah! am I so near the object o? lay
search? I have a message for Mary Ander
son. I promised, months ago, when in a
far distant land, that I would find her if I
could, and that I would give her a message
"I'tom ivhrfm?" asked the hostess, trem
bling and holding her breath.
"I think." replied the stranger, again
spreading his hands out towards the fire,
"that he was once a friend of your's,
as he has since been a friend of mine.
Thomas Andtfrsrin his name was. Do you
The woman bowed her head upon her
folded hands, and as she seemed ready to
sink, her daughter hastened to her side.
"No, no, Ellen, I am strong dot. Go
and sit down. The shock is past. He
A little while afterwards Mary Anderson
rai -ed her head, and spoke to. the stranger
again. As she had told her child the shock
hsd passed, and she had gained control of
"Thomas Anderson was my husband,
"So he told me, ma'am."
"You said you have seen him. Where ?"
"In a far-off land, wheri the noon day

"You said you had a messaee from him." '
"Give it to me. Oh, tell mo what he
The stranger put his hands out again to
the fire, arid his frame quivered as though
he were cold. In a few moments he said :
"Thomas Anderson told me bis story
told it with tears running down his cheeks,
and with many bitter sobs. He told me how
he left bU wife and iufant child how he
had sank from bad to worse, and how in a
moment of madness, he struck his faithful
companion to the floor. When he saw what
he had done fear aud remorse seized upon
him, and when his neighbors had come in,
and he saw his wife in better hands than
his, he fled from his home. Shame and
dread drove him on, and by the time the
f mad fire had gone out of his veins he found
himself in A place where great chips came
and went. He resoived that he would be a
man again if he lived ; but he dared not
return to his home until he could carry with
him some proof of his sincerity. He went
in a ship bound for India, and he meant
when he had grown strong, to write home
cheering words to his wife. But it was not
to be so. In the Iudian Ocean the ship
was cast away upon a strange Island, and
he with three others, the only ones saved of
the crew, remained three years. Finally a
Spanish trader picked them up, and once
more they were cast upon the African coast,
where two more years were spent. At that
time Anderson was picked up by an English
ship, bound for Australia. He landed in
Melbourn, where he remained until I got
ready to leave him. He has been a man
he has done well and if he knew that hia
w'ue had forgiven him, and that she would
let Him come home ; he would spend the
rest of . his life in trying to make some atone
ment for the past.''
"O, sir," cried Mary Andersen, clasping
her hands and weeping while she spoke,
"you don't know how good and noble he
was before he suffered ! O, if he cdiild
know how I Dave loved him how I have
borne his image in my heart, forgiveD always
he would not stay away."
"But lady, Thomas Anderson will come
back to you no longer poor. In the sand
he has gathered for himself much wealth.
He has gathered a sum that might seem al
most fabulous to the honest people of this
place gathered it not for himself no, no ;
but for those whom he hoped to bless For
his wife and child."
"Come he rich, or come he poor come
he to give me succor, or come he to be
nursed in weakness and want if he only
eowes with the love he pledged me in the
bright morning of our youth, I will take
him to my bosom and bless him with a wife'
So spoko Mary Anderson ; and as the
words fell from her hps the strong man star
ted to his feet with his arms outstretched.
A moment he stood thus, swaying to and
fro, and then, as though all his life and
strength had left him he sank down upon
his knees, and covering his face with his
hands, he sobbed aloud :
"O, God ! Thus upon my knees how
often have I prayid for this! uiy wife !
my child !"
They were down by his side their arms
were about him they called him husband
and father and the bright fire-light shone
l-pon their mingling tears.
In the morning the storm was passed and
the sun came brightly up. Late in the
forenoon the stage came along the road with
strone, busy hands and dug through the
drifted snow ; but Ellen Anderson did not
go away in it. And many suns arose, heam
iug warm and brk'htly upon the bouse of
Mary Anderson ; but the light and warmth
from without was uothiug to the light aud
The love of the earlier time had been re
hewed, aud the noon day of life turned to

richer tnd more enduring by the stern trials

A Laughable Incident. The train
from Mobile to Jackson recently brought
up a lot of oysters which was something
never beore seen by some darkies present,
who began to examine thetu with great as
"Whar he mouf ?" exclaimed one of the
most inquisitive. "How utu eat, eh ? Gol
ly ! I tiuks um nuffin 'cept a bone. Yah 1
yah!" he continued, laughing at his own
wit. "I 'spec' S"iue white man tiuk nigga
a fool when he call dat ting ister. "
Just then he discovered an oyster slightly
open, and seizing it he eyed itclos'fely. Not
satisfied with this examination, he placed it
td his nose ; but no fooner was that organ
Inserted between the shells than they closed,
when the dafltey howled with pain, and
called out: "Pull utft off! pull um off!"
But the more the oyster was pulled, Ihe
more it would not let go j and so poor Cuf
fee danced and yelled, his frantic efforts to
rid himself of his uncomfortable nasal or
nament, were both ludicrous and painful.
'"Hit um with a stick," said a buxom
wench ; and in a moment the oyster was
knocked right and left with a hearty will,
but Cuffee head went with it.
"Pineh he tail;" cried a little nig, "and he
sure let go."
But there was no tail to pinch, and Cuffee
seemed doomed to wear the oyster forever.
At this moment an "intelligent contraband"
whipped out a knife, and it soon severed
the oyster. Cuffee looked at the shells with
amazement, and finding the oyster tooth
less, threw it away with the remark : "Um
got no teef, but he gum it powerful !"
The Number Seven.
No one who reads the Scriptures can fail
to notice the frequent occurrence of certain
numbers ; and in both 'he Old and New
Testaments we find that unusual promi
nence is given to the number seven.
The Old Testament opens with the crea
tion of the world, which is said to have oc
cupied six days, and the seventh was devo
ted to repose ; and among the Jews the
seventh year is also consecrated to the rest
of the year, and is called the sabbatical
year, and the seven times seventh year is
styled the year of jubilee.
It would be almost impossible to mention
all the instances in which the number seven
occurs in the Scriptures, but we will briefly
notice a few of them, and perhaps some of
our readers may be interested to search for
themselves for a number which figures so
conspicuously in the sacred writings, and to
whose religious significance many scholarly
minds have given much time and thought.
In the Old Testament we have the seven
days of the week ; we find also that in cer
tain sacrifices the sprinkling of blood was
repeated seven times; that a leprous house
was closed for seven days, and afterward
sprinkled severi times; the ennseerardi of
the priests continued sOveri d iys ; the feast
of the tabernacle la.'ed seven days, and
children were not circumcised until they hr.d
reached their seventh day. All are familiar
with the story of Jacob, who served seven
years each for Leah aal Ilichel. In Phar
aoh's dreams, of which Joseph was the in
terpreter, the number of seven as applied
to the kine and the ears of corn, signified
the seven years of plenty and of famine
that were to come upon the land of Egypt.
Seven years were required to conquor
Canaan, and tho temple was seven years in
building. Naaman was commanded to wash
seven time in Jordan. In compassing the
city of Jericho, seven priests, bearing seven
trumpets of rams' horns, preceded the ark;
they thes marched about the city seven
days, and on the seventh day seven times.
As a magical charm, Samson was bound
with seven green withes, and seven locks of
his hair were woven with the web.
In the New Testament we have the seven
baskets of fragments. In Matthew xviii.,
21, 22, we read : "Then came Peter to him,
and said. Lord, how oft shall my brother
sin against me, nnd I forgive him ? Till
seven times?" "Jesus saith unto him, I
say not unto thee until seven times, but un
til seventy timec seven."
In the book of llevelation the number
seven is used very frequently. There are
seven churches of Asia, seven stars, seven
golden cand'esticks, seven spirits of God,
the latub with seven horns and seven eyes,
the book V7 i 1 1 ovu Htsalts neven
with seven trumpets, seven thunders, seven
viils with seven last plagues, the earthquake
destroying seven, thousand men, and the
beast and the dragon having each seven
heads. The witnesses prophesy in sackcloth
the half of seven years, and lie unburied
the half of seven years.
From sacred history we pass to profane ;
and 4ifn . large number of examples, we
will mention the seven ages, tlie seven cham
pions, the seven hills, the seventh son of
the seventh son, the seven sleepers, the sev
en wonders of the world, the seven stages
of life (Shakespeare), and the seven wise
men. In astronomy we have the seven
stars called Pleiades, situated in the ne::k o!
the constellation Taurus. Ye read of the
seven-fold shield of Ajax of seveu fold
rage ; and Milton says: .
0f every henst. and bird, nnd insect stnll,
Came sevens and pairs."
There is an ancient coupleti by ThotiiaS
Ileywood, who lived in the seventeenth cen
tury, which runs thus :
"Seven cities warred for Homer, being dead.
Who, living . had no rdiif to shield his head."
It has been frequently sttted that severi
is the number df hours that sliould be deves
ted to sleep. Ve remember a little couplet
on this point, which amused us in our child
".Nature requires five, custom takes seven,
Laziness nine, and wickedness eleven."
Sir William Jones gives the safest coua
rel in regard to this matter :
"Seven hours to Sure, to soothing slumber seven.
Ten to the world allot, an 1 all to Heaven."
Seven is often used to indicate a great
number as "seven times as many," "Sev
en score," and "Double seven times ;" and
to refer to tho Bible once more, we find in
Proverbs this passage: "The sluggard is
wiser in his own coneeit than seven men
that can render a reason."
Leaving the sober paths of sacred and
profane history, we find that the number
seven has also been popularly adopted iri
(he field of wit aud humor; however we
will give but one example, and that Li ah
ancient riddle :
'-As I was going to St Ives,
t met seven wives ;
Each wife had seven sacks.
Each sack bad seven cats,,
Each eat had seven kits. . -,
JJow many were going tJ St ites?'
Wrapped in its selfishness and devoted
to its pleasures, little does Society know of
the troubles which weigh dowa the spirits
of its members little does it know the
many hearts which never feel a ray of un
shine, or of the gloom which thickens around
some fair form until hands white and soft
obey the suicide's will. Yet amid the giddy
throng, there is many S heavy heart, many
a fainting spirit which has borne bravely up
until now and now despairs. Nearly all
go unknown, urfpiued, their sad story un
told. But like straws upon the ocean in
lone time a few scraps of heart history will
drift to us.
Out West, when a notoriously lazy man
is caught at work, they say he is meddling
A Poor ClR.bencT. A correspondent of
a New York paper, who has recently visited
Hayti, writes as follows :
As I stepped ashore at Port-au-Prince, I
met an orange girl, and asked her the price
of her fruit per dozen. She replied, "forty
dollars." I mad J up my mind that that un
fortunate young woman had escaped from a
lunatic asylum, and I noticed a wild Icok
about her eyes as I passed on, without say
ing anything. But when a miserable, beg
garly native took a message across the street
fof me, and demanded only $400, I thought
ii time to remonstrate, and I refused to give
the audacious swindler anything, expressing
my opinion of him in English, which he
didu't understand. But when I saw a hat
marked $2,000, a light beean to dawn upon
me. I held lip a five dollar gold piece, and
the shopkeeper took it, gave me the hat.and
then shoveled out about a bushel of dirty
"change." Then it was explained to mo
that the currency of the country is a paper
money, so depreciated that 500 or 600
gourdes, or dollars, of it are equal only to
one dollar in hard money. The Island was
flooded with it, and it has been so nearly
worthless, at one time.that $10,iH)0 in paper
iras equivalent to $1 in gold. After I had
stuffei all my pockets and my hat with the
change, I immediately paid the ill-used
messenger his $100 with a few hundred
thrown in, for having called hitn names in a
language he didn't understand.

Origin the Cioar. The first account
we have of the cigar is in tho works of Na-
varrette and Las Casas. and is quoted by
Irving. In describing tho Em .oyiga of
Columbiis he says: "They beheld several
of the natives going about with fire brands
in their hands and certaindried herbs which
they rolled up in a leaf, nnd, lighting one
end, put the other in their mouths, and con
tinued inhaling and puffing out the smoke.
A roll of this kind they called a tobaco, a
name since transferred to the plant of which
the rolls were made, thou!: that is the
hatiie by which the cigar is to-day known in
Cuba. Oviedo speaks of it (History Gener
al dc las Indian) as among the evil cus
toms of the Indians of Cuba, very perni
cious and producing insensibility. Their
mode of smokiug was by inhalation through
the nostrils by means of a hollow forked
cane, the forked ends being inserted in the
nostrilsj the other end applied to the burn
ing leaves of the plant."
Ignorant Bnvs. At an examination of
the boys in the city of Rome, who applied
for admission to the receutly opened lyce
tim, most Of the applicants; although they
Had studied for years at the old Papal
schools, were found to be almost incredibly
ignorant. A tall lad of eighteen was asked
what geography was. He did not know it.
"What is Saidiuia?" "A river." "The
Ardriatic?" "A mountain." "Milan?"
"Ah ocean." Another was questioned about
the history ot Italy. He was utterly igno
rant, and when the examining professor
expressed some surprise at his lack of knowl
edge, he replied haughtily, "You must bear
in mind, sir, that I am a Roman, and not
an Italian !"
"tommy B , one night returned to his
domicil in a state of uncertainty that was
ridiculous. Pushing heavily against the
door, it opened, and Tommy fell Sprawling
across I he threshold. His prolonged and
ineffectual efforts to regain an erect position
aroused his wife, in bed in the next room,
who said: "Tommy, is that you? What is
the matter?" "Yes, it's me; nothing's the
matter, 'cept this here bee's got too much
honey on its wings to g-g-git into the hive."
Said an aged minister a few wchUs tfgr :

I pressed her gentle form' to me, and

for cheering words, my throbbing heart to

"You want nothing, do you?" said Pat.

upper part of the loin, rurrounded by fat, and
eonsisting of three parts, via : the Anterior, the
Interior, aiii the Exterior. '
The anterior absorbs Interior consists of tis
sues or veins, which serve as a deposit for the
urine and convey it to the exterior. The exte
rior is a conductor also, terminating in a single
tube, ad called the V reter. The ureters are con
nected wilh the bladder
The bladder ia f mposed of various coverings
or tisiues, divided into parts, vis : the Upper, the
Lower, the Nervous, and the Mucous. The upper
expels, the lower retain. Many have a desire to
urinate without the ability, others urinate with
out the ability to retain. This frequently occurs
To cure these afiscliena, we must bring into ac
tion the muscles, which are engaged in their va
rious functions. If they ere neglected, Qravol or
Dropsy may ensue.
The redaer mut a'so be ma le aware, that how
ever slight may be the attack, it is sure to affect
the bodily health and mental powers, as onr flesh

II. T. HKt.HDoi.D. Dtuggist:
Dear Sir: I bsve been a sufferer, for upward
of twenty years, with gravel, bladder and kidney
affections, during which time I bave nsed various
med iciual preparation. ai.d been under the treat
ment of the most eminent Physicians, experien
cing but little relief
Hiivirg lien jour preparations e.t'crvvcly ad
vertised, I ennsn'ted with my family physician id
regard to using your Extract iliich'u.
I did this because t hiid nsed ali kiiids of ad
vertised remedies, nnd bad found ibmn worthless,
and eoine quite injurious; in f.-tct. 1 despaired of
ever getting will, and dctrrutii.ed to u.-o no rem
edies hereafter unless I knew of the ingredients.
It was this that prompted me to use your remedy.
As you advertised that it was composed of bucbu,
inbebs and juniper berries, it occurred to me and
my physician as an excellent combination, aud,
with bis advice, after an ex ami nut ion of the arti
cle, and eon'uiting again with tin druggist, I
concluded to try it. 1 commerced its use about
eight months ago. t wii ch li::ie i wis confined
to my room From the Trst Ix.t'le I was astoniib
ed and gratified at the beneficial effect, and after
using it three weeks was able to walk oat. I felt
uiufh like writing yon a full statement or mycus
at that time. Eit tbonght my improvement might
only be temKrary, and therefore concluded to
defer and see if it would effect a perfect cure,
knowing then it would be of greater value to you
ftnd more satisfactory to me
I am now able to report thit a cire is effected
a.te. using the remedy for five mouths.
I havo not used any now for three months, and
feel as well in all respects as I ever did.
Yoar Kuchu being devoid ot any rnpleasani
taste and odor, a nice tenii and invigorator of the
system. I do not mean to be without it whenever
occasion may renuire its use in surb affections.

he refers to the following gentlemen :
