laoti Brrroos as a tonic and re
storative for my daughter, whom
•I was th6roughly convinced was
wasting. away with Consumption.
• Having lost three daughters by the
terrible disease, under the care of
eminent physicians, I was loth to
believe that anythinge . td arrest
the progress of the di.. , but, to
. my great surprise, before my daugh- , terhad taken one bottle of Booms's
bids Iltrrosts ; she began to mend
and ndw is quite restored to former
health. A fifth daughter began to
show signs of Consumption, and
when the physician was consulted
' • he . quickly ; said — Tonics were re.
spired i" and when:informed - that
' . the elder sister was taking Boom's
loos . Burros, responded "that is
agood tonic, take it."

You placed this tower in her hand, you say ?
This pure, pale rose in her band of clay •
Methirks could she lift her sealed eyes
They would meet your own with a grieved cur.
She bas been your wofe for many a year,
When clouds hung low and when..skles were
At your feet she laid her ice's glad spring.
And her summer's glorious blossoming.
Her whole heart with the hand you won;
U its war, love waned as the years went on.
U it chilled in the'grasp of an icy spell. •
What was the reason? I pray you tell.
Yon cannot? I can and beside her bier •
Bitsoul must speak, and your soul must hear,
If she was not all that she might have been,
Hers was the sorrow—yours the sin
Whose was the fanit U she did not grow .

Does a lily grow when its leaves are chilled?
Does it - Vooni when Us root is winter killed?
For ei little while, when you first were wed,
Your love was like sunshine round - her shed;
Then a somethingi crept between you two, •
Yon led.where she could not follow you.
With a man't fire tread you went and came;
Yon lived for wimith, for-power, for fame:
Shut Into her wonien'i week and ways.
Sho heard the nation chant your praise,
But ah ! you had dropped her hand the while,
What time had yoU fora kiss. a smile 1
You two, with the same roof overheed,

That love will snivve ifit is not fed,
That true hearts pray for their daily bread.

I was invited to a lunch party in one
of the inland cities of Pennsylvania not
long ago, midi sriiS much impressed by
the appearancii, of one of the younger
ladies present: I She was not beintiful,
but united • the striking characteristics
of a brilliant, l fresh complexion, and
proinsionof hair, white us snow, which
was wound one , the top of her head after
the fashion of; Madrozo's "Marquise,"

Was very merry, a good talker, and, I
must confess, I contrived to occupy the
largei part of her attention with the
tendency toward Monopolizing the best
which the moment affords that I am
told is often observed by my fumiliais.
After bidding adieu to the ladies, I
turned todhe lohliging friend who had

to achieve it yOung ?'
My friend removed his cigar.

Harry bade hp wife good-bye and
Mamie gave up the picnic. At the end
of two days she received a telegram
from him, saying he had been detaiaed,
and telling her to get some one to stay
with her for tan days, when. be would

one of jier . old friends went-,out with
her. At the end of two days she had
another telegram, -saying he had been

The afternoon of the tenth day was
a hot, murky , afternoon. Mamie had
gone up stairs to take a nap and refreah
before dressing to meet Harry, who was.
expected home after the longest absence
'he hal ever made from her.
Aftex a time Sarah came up and told
her there was a tramp down Weird who
wanted something to eat, and who
would' not be driven off.
- "You oughtn't to leave him! , minute

She dressed herself quickly and !went

it had growli. When she reached the
kitchen She found also a messenger
with another telegram which announced
another, disappointment, but the next
day, without fail, Harry wrote, he would
be home.' As Mamie turned into the
kitchen she heard the tramp Ad Sarah
in evident dispute.
"Yea" 'said the- fellow, when i that

down rapidly and there burst one of

Mamie felt that after all they irsr

worried and anxious, ' finally • went
to sleep.
About midnight Mamie- found her:
self awake_ and a bright light shinieg
in the roorn. She ' , tatted up and saw
that it was i the moonlight. The storm
had cleared away at last. She got up
unable to compose herself immediately,
and went to the window. •Tile _ moon
was indeed shining brightly. , As she
stood looking at . the peaceful scene be

for it was as bright as day, several
horsemen. It 1 was such an unusual
sight at this hour that she stood watch

She ran to the sleeping, Sarah and
awakened her. She got down Harry's
rifle, Which he had' loaded and. taught
her to use. The sleeping girl was 'soon
thoroughly awake, and she explained to
her their condition.
"It's the tramp that's done it." .

The Independents held-their Couven
tiOn at Philadelphia on - Wednesday of
heat week. Delegates were present
from nearly Om county iu the State.
Senator Mitchell was elected temporary
chairmari by acclamation amid cheers
and applause. Mr. Mitchell wade a
brief speech in which he - - said he was
hetutly in sympathy with the indepen-
dent Movement. He trusted that What
was done by the convention would be
approved and ratified by the people of
the commonwealth The work of the
convention. was to ',nominate a ticket
that would recede the respect and sup
port of the republican party.
At the conclusion Ilk-Mr. Mitchell's
speceh the roll of delegates was called
after which the Convention proceeded
to elect permanent officers.
H. C. Foster of Venango was chosen
permanent chairman. Foster made a
speech dating which he said the death
of Garfield was chargeable to the spoils
system. and remarked that political
power hat long been regarded as a sort
of patrimony, to be handed down from
father to soa.
The committee on roles reported the
platform,' the reading of which was fro.
quently interrupted by apPliiuse, which
certain planks, and the spoils system'
elicited. '
The platform_ was adopted unanimous
ly and it reads as follows:
We, l ,:the republicans of Pennsylvania,
who will .nott, stur)nder our. political
1 -rights unit r'ho, maintain the exercise
of our conscience and judgment con
cerning public affairs, having assembled
at a state convetion, make tho follow-
ing declaration of principles and pur-
Resolved, first, We declare attachnient to
the principles of £he republiCan party, to
freedom, union, nationality, equal rights
before the law, the maintenance of the
public faith, protection of home industry;
and we demand that the record which has
been so nobly made shall be nisely and
fearlessly perpetuated.
Resolved, second,. We declare that the
nomination and electiOn of James A. `Gar-
field to the presidency' signified to MI the
triumph of a true reform in civil service
and of enlarged liberty of action for the
masses of the republican party in the nomi
nation of candidates and in. the conduct of
their party affairs, and we deplore the
overwhelming evidence prerented to us in
-Pennsylvania that the calamity of 'his as
sassination has been followed by the over
throw of these reforms in the hands of his
successor. •
Resolved, third, .We denounce the system I
which makes " patronage " and " spoils "
out of public offices ; we denounce the
practice of giving them to' political mana
gers for use in advancing personal political
ends we denounce the removal of faithful
'and competent officers in the absence of
public reason ; we denounce the practice
of levying assessments and demanding con
tributions for party use from public
officio*: we denounce severally and col
, lectively the evils and corruptions which
accompany the conduct of the government
as the spoils system-" and which • are in
separable fronasuch a method of admivis
istration'' and -we denounce the system of
" boas rule " and " machine "control
which, when tamely endured, makes lead
ers into autderate, and reduces the masses
of citizenship' into political bondage.
, Resolved, fourth, We declare' our pur
pose to take up work which fell when Gar
field fell; we demand in place of the
"spoils system" a reformation-in the civil
service by • law, so that appointive places
therein may be freely open to all tit indus
trious citizen , and removals therefrom
shall be only for good ,and sufficient public
cause; sire demand instead of the prostitu
tion of the public service to private uses, its
recognition on as- a high and honorable trust
to be administered for the people's benefit,
with efficiency, economy, and integrity; we
demand instead of the insolence of pro
scription and tyranny, " bossism and " ma
chine rule," the free; conscientious exercise
of private judgment in political i affairs and
the faithful discharge by those silo assume
representative trusts of • the expressed •
"of the people.
Resolved, fifth, We declare in favor of
the following party - '
reforms: (L) That del
egates to state conventions shall be chosen
by the people in the manner in which the
candidates for the general assembly are
nominated. "(2.) That the representation
in the state convention shall be by counties

Dispatches from the old world an
nounce that the eclipse of tho lith'in
stant was successfully observed by the
astronomers from their several stations
in Asia and Africa.' One important die
cov'ery,due to the use of the spectro-
scope, is the detection, l 'of an atmosphere
on the moon. This will
,again revive
the question of its habitability. The
theory of life existing ,on the moon has
been rejected by the greater number of
astronomers, because, reasoning from
terrestial facts, they argued that the
attenuated atmosphere of the moon, if
it has an atmosphere at all, Must be ab
solutely incapable of maintaining ani
That the Moon presents the same aide
to our view is undoubtedly owing to the
peculiar shape, which Must be slightly
conoid• It revolves around the earth
in an orbit nearly a quarter of a million
miles away, and consequently dean - Abell
a circular path about one million and a
half miles
_in length, moving over ,it at
the rate approaching three thousand
miles an hour. The centrifugal force
must then be exceedingly great, and as
the 'heaviest bodies are thrdwn the great
est distance, the heaviest 'side of the
Moon must( be at the extreme ;of the
radius and therefore its nor-rotation is
accounted for. When we see the same
deeply-seamed, volcanic face cent:lo
usily presented, we must remember that'
we really are but Tiewial , the Selenite
highlands, reaching far above theden
ser atmosphere - that surrounds their
base or aide turned from , us, just as our
mountain-tops tower above our clouds.
The fact that the Moon has an atmos
phere is attested by the observations of
Father Secehi, Prof. Drew, 'the great
Herschel, and many others who have ,
-seen the crescent during' "new moon"
terminating in a gradually decreasing
cusp of light, similar tb our ewn twilight,
which could only be' produced by the
refraction of an attanspbere. "
Many years ago the German astrono-,
mer Gruithuisen, who made hundreds
of observations of the moon. saw and
delineated a figure in the northeast
quadrant, consisting of a series of par
allel walls branching off from .a straight
central line, like the backbonepf a her
ring, and terminating at - an abutting
wall. This remarkable object was at 4
times indistinct, as if obscured by mist,
but the fact of its existence was attested
by Many European astronomers, among
whom were Prince Metternich and Pro
limier Schwabe and Schmidt, ail noted
for the accuracy of their observations.
Its discoverer claimed ,that the figure
was artificial and others promiunced it
to be a fortification constructed accord
ing to the beat; principles of military
defethie. Subsequently the fortification
disappeared and Professors Beer and
Madler, who united in the study ,of the
moon, denied its existence - und the
charts published by them did' not con.
tain a trace of it, as they had determin
ed to reject everything not visible
through their Berlin telescope. But in
1888 the figure again appeared, not in
its original dimensions, nor exactly in
[ its first design, but smaller and with
modified outlines, one , portion being
omitted, as if the defenses_ had been
destroyed and were being rebuilt. Beer
and Madler'coull not dispute the evi
deuce of their own senses stud altered
their maps accordingly, showing the
figure above the equator, 'northeast of
the centre. ' Who built it?

C'rasked Hoofs.
A cracked hoof can only , be repaired _
by new growth from the coronet, where
the new horn
- is secreted. Horn con
sists 'of precisely the same elements as
hair; and is really a solid, compact form
of hair growth; the hair of the skin
ends where the growth of the horn be
gins, and this 'lmes on downward to re
paii the constant wear at the sole of the
hoof-crust. Bat a crack in the hoof
will always extend -up into new and
weak growth because the born is ix
panded by the pteinire of the horse's
weight upon the foot. To prevent
- this the aides of the crack' must be artik .
ported and held together - by""sours
means. This zits* be done by boaring
holes through the born on each aide' of
the crack and putting horseshoe nail / s
through and drawing the hoof together
and clinching the ends of these nails on
each side. The top of the crack should
then be burned across so u - to obliter
ate the opening and form a solid start

hoof should be kept soft and elastio ? by

How to Check a Bone-Spavin.
Bone spavin consists of inflammation
of the membranes covering•tne bona of
the hook joint or of the bones them
selves. It may result • frcim oonstitu
tionatcauses: from 7eaknetui of the
holies' caused by over-feeding upon '
corn, which is in starch and
deficient in the phosphates which' go
to build up the bony frame; from hard
work, or from bad shoeing, which
throws the foot out of balance and in-'
daces strains of the joints . Of the leg.
Spavina i 'are • very common 'becitue
these causes are common. The 'win"
may be checked best by the application
of cold water, by which the infitunation
is reduced, and • then by stimulating
liniments, which produce abeoiption of -
the. products of the inflamation.
spavin ends by the formation of a bony.
growth about . the parts • affected, and
shen - this is completed the joint _be
comes cemented together and remains
stiff, but' the tenderness and pain ; are
lost. Y Care of an old spavin is, there
fore out of question. After the cold
applications have been tried without
result, blistering, firing' and intone

restorted to. . '
How to tell a Good Potato.
Take a sound OW*, and paying no
attention to its outward appearance,
divide it into two pieces with your
knife and examine the exposed Surfaces.
It there is so lamb water or "jam"
that seemingly a slight press* wank(
cause it to fall off in drops, you may • be
sure it will be 'soggy' after it is boiled.
These are the requisite qualities for a
good Potato which must appear when
one is Cut in two: For color, a yellow
ish white; if it is a deep yellow the
potato will not cook well; there must be
a considerable amount cif, moisture,
though not too much; rub the two pieces
together and a white froth will appear
around the edges And upon the two
surfaces; this signifies the presence of
starch, and the more star* sad muse
quently !froth, the better the potato,
while the lesi there is the poorer it win
cook.- 7 The strength of the starch ele
ment can be tested by releasing the
hold ripen one Piece of the potato, and
if it still clime to the other. • this' in
itself is a very good sign. These are
the experiments generally made by e 1
perts,•and they are ordinarily willing to
buy on the strength of their turning
out well, though these tests are by no
means infallible.
