It is better to follow
CRIMPING ITP ?ME swill:
In the softly-falHog twilight
Of a trkary, weary day,
With 6 quiet step I. entered I - -
Where the children were - at play,
I was brooding o'er some trouble
That had met me unawares,
When little voice came ringing;
"Mc Is creepin' up the stairs!"
Ah I it touched thetender heartstring
With 'a breath and force divine.
And snob melodies awakened
As ni'ore wordi can ne'er
And I turned to see our darling,
All forgetful of my cares,
When.l taw the little °radar° '
!only creeping up the stairs.
- Step by step she bravely clambered,
On her little hands and kno- s,
Keeping up s constant chattering
Like the,magpies in the trees,
Till at last she reached the topoinst,
When, o'er all her World's affairs,
`=She, delighted, stood a victor,
After creeping up the stairs.
Fainting heart i behold an image
Of man's brief and struggling life,
Whose best prizes he must capture
With an earnest, noble attire,
Onward, upward, reaching ever—
Bending 'to the weight of cares;
Hoping, fearing, still ezpecting—
•We go creeping up the stairs.
On the steps may be no carpet,
By their side may be no rail;
Hands and knees may often pain us,
And the heart may almost fail;
Still, above there is the glory,
Which no sinfulness impairs,
With its rest and joy forever,
After creeping up the stairs !,
C.APTAIIif 84,411 7 LErS BODY-
'Well, yes,' said my host, Captain
Stanley, as brave a soldier as ever drew
a sabre, hare seen some hard times
since I have been oat here, and so have
we all. A man in our profession can't
pass five years of his life on the plains
Without getting some hard knocks, I
tell you.' •
We had jest finished .a late supper,
and having drawn our chairs about the
wide fireplace, had filled our pipes pre
paratory to indulging in a social smoke:
There were a dozen of us in the room,
all except myself wearing Uncle Sam's
'honored blue,' I. was at that time a cor- -
respondent for an eastern paper, ,and
had been ordered to the frontier to
'write up' the campaign which General
Cook was about to undertake against
the Cheyennes who had broken away
from their reservation. Finding that a
detachment led by Captain Stanley,
the commander of old Fort Prazierl
was expected to bear the brunt of the
work I joined my fortunes with it, ac
companied it on a perilous scout of
fourteen hundred miles, and we had but
just returned to the fort. Wo had got
back, too, just in time to escape what
western men call a' 'blizzard.' And
a. tut. & 1), 10 611 11111.11,661.•••••••••ar
New England snow storm a dozen times
intensified.. The wind blows us if it
would sweep everything before it, the
cold is so piercing that one shivers over
the.hottest fire, and the air is filled, not
with snow, but with sharp needles of
ice, which seem to threaten.destruction
to every living thing exposed to its fury.
We were all snugly housed; our jaded
horses were munching their barley' in
their warm stables, the sentries were
standing grim and silent in their boxes,
and those of us who were fortunate
enough to have no duty_ to call us out
into the storm,; spread our hands over
the cheerful wood' fire and congratulated
ourselves on the safe ending of our te
diens acont. •
I said there were a dozen of us in the
room; but I must not forget to mention
Captain Stanley's' body-guard, four
magnificent Scotch deerhounds, which
lay stretched out in front of the fire.
They were large shaggy animals, with
immense bone and muscle, and bore On
I their bodies numerous evidenees of the
battles through which they Il i ad pima
They were terrible fighters, and the
ease with which they could overtake
and pall down an antelope was surpris
ing. They accompanied us on the
scout, and I could not imagine .why it
was that they were treated with so much
kindness and Consideration by every
member of the command. On this par-
Healer night.l was to find out.
'How the wind blows 1' exclaimed a
young lieutenant, from his seat in the
chimney corner, 'I declare it will tear
the stockade up by the roofs.'
'Yes, it is u wild night; and I hadn't
been on the plains as long as you have,
Jack,' said the captain, addressing him
self to the lieutenant, 'before I was
called upon, to face just such a s'orni - !4s
this without shelter of any kind. ex
cept what was to be found in the hills,
and under circumstances that were
calculated to freeze the blood:in the
veins of the bravest man- that ever
stepped. ThoSe hours of horror turned
my'llair white as you see it now, and
made me an'old man before My time, I
cannot recall them without shuddering.!
The captain' uffed vigorously at hie
well blackened brier root for a few
minutes, and after making sure that it '
was well lighted gentinned:
- 'I always was fond of horses, dogs
and guns, and I can scarcely remember'
the time when I did not own some of
the very best. My pointers could not
be beaten, my pony would take a fence
almost is well as any of my father's
thoroughbreds, ,and my little fowling
piece was sure death to any hird that
got up Within any reasonable distance.
When I left home to go to West Point
it almost broke my heart to part from
my pets; but my uncle, who was an ar
dent sportsman. assured me if I would
pass - a creditable •axaminatien at the
end of my school , term be would pre
sent me with a pack of dogs that would
more than take the place of the
_one I ,
left behind; my father, a veteran otthe
Mexican war-and a great admirer of the
cavalry, told me that if I would fit my
self to enter that branch of the service,
he would give me the finest •hcirso in
his stable, and my mother said she
would give me another. Encouraged
by these promises, and ambitious to

'As soon Us I received my commission
I was ordered to report to the com

The officers were all lovers of the chase,
and at the sight of my horse and hounds
they received me with open arms. In
company with the neighbving ranch
men we hunted almost constantly; there
was little scouting to be done, for the
Indians were qbietly 'settled on their

the first snow coveted the ground, the

my dogs which seemed inclined to
turn about and give battle to te pack of

no little uneasiness that although the
south wind was blowing strongly, that
threatening bank of clouds in the north
was rising rapidly against it. The
Arctic King was coming in his might,
and I knew that the storm would over
take me long before I could reach my

there was a 'spring of good water close

there was a lull, such as sometimes oc

the , final onslaught was made. I The
- blizzard was in fall blast. The air was
literally tilled with ice. .It grew c o lder
and colder every minute and my: fire
seemed to give out
. no heat. I could
not look at the blaze for the pain in my
eyes had increased until it was almost
Unbearable. Finally I wrapped my ,
blankets around me and lay down to

the wolves had approached so close to
my camp that I could hear the patter of
their feet as they ran about among the
scrub oaks, and my, faithful dogs,' now

that my mare was rendered uneasy by

It had burned itself completely out.
Groping my way, on my hands and

I could not see the coil, and; yet it must

I could distinctly hear it burning. but . I

With another cry of terrorl groped my

my dogs and the wolves was in full pro

were gaining the victory. They drove
'the wolves away from me, but the rave

They turbed their attention to my

The Fox Calls a Convention.
' A Fox who found tiard picking in a
certain neighborhood, one day visited
a farmer's' Dog, and. said: - 'I have
lately undergone a change of heart, and
I wish you to make known the fact to
your Master's Fowls. . They treat me as
if I was a muiderer and it really hurts
my feelings to' See them hurry into the
coop .at sunset. The Farmer, too,
seems to distrust me, for he has made
the coop so tight that I cannot find a
single knothole. What sort of a way, is
that to treat - a . Fox who is doing his
best to earn an honest living ? 'I pre
sume you would like to state 'yonr case
to the Fowls in person ?' observed the
-Dog. 'That's it, that's the very idea, re
plied the Fox. 'Say to them, that I
should like to meet them in
Hon under this tree, tomorrow, at noon.
I will then explain my feelings to
thetn, and trust that the Fox and Fowls
will hereafter live in the greatest har
mony. Indeed, the'dnly difference be
tween us, is the fact that I have no
wings, and they shouldn't hold me in
suspicion on 'that account.' The Dog
agreed to act mediator, ediator, and at noon
next day, the Fox crept carefully
through the weeds to the rendezYous,
and crouched to await the coming - Of
the Fowls.. There 'was presently heard
a great whirl and clatter, and two score
of hens alighted in the branches:of the
tree over the Fox. 'The convention I
willow proceed to business," said 'an
old Hen, as she , peered down' upon the:
Fox.' 'Just so,' grinned the Fox.' 'Please
- come down and we will proceed.'
'Thinks, but if it's all the same to you,
we'd rather you would come up here,'
replied the Hen. 'But lian't fiy.' And
we are poor runners.' ' The Fox not
being able to fir up, and the Hens re
fusing to fly down, the former was
'skulking off when he met the Dog, who

AND OLD JOKES.
''Gravity of demeanor' is, we appro.
bend, littleif atali inconsistent 'with a
genius for jocularity. Democritus who,
next. to Diogenes, said perhaps more
good things than any other philosopher
of antiquity; is described as 'very melan
choly by nature, averse from company
in his latter days, and iamb given to
.Douglass Jerrold,' one of
the keenest wits of the Victorian era,
was not only grave but anxious in de
meanoriland Thomas Hood the elder,
who could'make 'screening' jokes even
out of the complication of maladies
which tortured him, was facially the
picture of sadness. When we turn to
the two great `masters of humor and
pathos of miring et, it will be remember
ed that the !-habitual expression of
Charles Dickens was one of concentrat
ed sternness, and that the ordinary
mien of William Makepeace Thackeray
was of extrajudicial gravity. There is
a host of good stories • in the • 'Table
Talk' of Samuel Rogers, but the out
ward and visible appearance of the
banker-po i et.was the reverse of mirthful.
It was ghastly aio cadaverous to an
alarming degree; so much so; indeed,
that a French footman to whom Rogers
had, on catering a room given by mid
tike the card of Thonias Moore, instead
of his own announced him to the com
pany. as .'Monsieur le Mort.'

. survival of some mediaeval

felt it deep conviction of sin. Frew
hearing the Calvinistie idea of 'saving
faith disenssed by the eminent Divines
who visited her father's• house, her
childish fear Was aroused lest she was
not one of the elect, and was destined
to be endlessly lost. Her fears, her
doutits and tears, made her, for a time
very unhappy. But faithful prayer,
oft-times beside the path on going
through the woods to school; once
morning and evening beside her hum.;
blo cot, soon opened to her spiritual
vision a broader light ; and a bright
faith; and she felt again happy in the
assurance that she was a child of God
if she believed in Him and loved him;
mid she wished again to be _ baptised
and unite with God's people.
She was considered altogether too
young for -such an important step.
When at a suitable age she made pub
lic! prntsadou of her faith, suit 'tutted
in full fellowship into the Baptist
churoh at Wysox, of which the - Rev.
Hezekiah West was pastor. She re
mained a communicant of this church
until she was married and removed to
Ithica, when she united with the Milton
church: Later in life she embraced the
,Universalist faith and is a sincere sup
porter of its doctrines.
The poor have ever found in= Mrs.
Davies the generOus hand to relieve
their necessities, and the sympathis
ing heaat to feel their sorrows. It is
site to assert 'that no person was. ever
turned away from her door without
help; asper motto has always been, , "it
is better to hely the undeserving than
to pass by one that is really deservirig."
To Mrs.. Davies the words of Rine
Lemuel in the Proverbs, can be truly
applied.- "She stretched out her hand
to the poor; !ea she stretcheth `forth
her hands-to the needy.. The children
rise up and call her . blessed; her hus
band and he praiseth her.-
My - mother early showed evidence of
a piety, and regard for sacred_ things,
which has been characteristic , of her
whole life. When three years of age

And Jesus name not in it ?.

precious book, she turned to ono of
the Gospels and read the whole act•eunt..
She wan a child of unusual intelligrince
and thoughtfullnes from her earliest
childhood, and when other children of
her ago were romping and playing
with their companions in joyous sports
in the air and sunshine, she would be
found seated wetly beside her mother,

times visited their parishoner, and con- ,
