George's Anti-Poverty Poem.
| A sign is seen in the skies to-day,
And the stars in its light grow dim and gray,
It blesses as sunshine, and gladd;ns the sight
Of the hopeless sunk in the shades of night.
Despair is banished, and sorrows fade
In the light of the Cross of the New Crusade.
Here is hope for all: here is truth at last;
And the powers of evil stand aghast,
And curse the emblem whose coming riyes
Their vested injustice and legal gyves.
Theyiklter and palter and shrink dismayed
In the light of the Cross of the New Crusadt*
Long ! all, long ago, the glorious sign
Was seen by the conquering Constautine;
And in later ages its radieuce beamed
As crusaders thro* forest and valley streamed;
But the light of their emblem was but a shade
To the light of the Cross of the New Crusade.
For here is justice and Brotherhood;
Love, Liberty, Peace and the gladsome brood
Of Joys that where ir jth is law increase;
Here social and credal hatreds cease,
Their voodoo and fetish ghosts are laid
In the light of the Cross of the New Crusade,
Hosanna! The day of oppression dies,
And with it the hoary-headed lies
Made sacred by age. The "right divine"
To mountain and lake, to meadow and mi.ie,
To enclose and to robe, is impotent made,
la the light of the Cross of the New Crusade.
It was a bright day in the early
part of October, 1803, that John
Matthews stopped his horses in the
middle of a loDg furrow he was draw
ing, to watch, with curious eyes, the
action of a United States officer, who
was slowly making his way toward
him over the freshly plowed ground.
After the customary salute, the strang
er said: ''l am not mistaken in sup
posing that I have the honor of ad

swer in the regions round about
here," was the reply of the puzzled
"Then, this paper will explain my
business," returned the officer, taking
a legal looking document from his
pocket, and putting it into the out
stretched hand of Matthews.
A swift glance at the contents of
the paper caused a change in the coun
tenance of the farmer.
"I thought that the quota of our
township had been filled?" he said, as
with trembling fingers he folded the
document and returned it to its envel- 1
"It seems not," answered the offi
cer, briefly,. "We have raised an im

"And still a little short. You will (

would have been in the ranks months

but decided voice.

I had not thought of lifting my puny

you cannot go."

honest John,wondering if the ill news
had not made the good woman a lit
"There are plenty of men ready to
go for monev, John, and there is that
five hundred dollars in the bank,"was
Mary'B cheerful reply.
"But that has been laid aside to re
model the old homestead," sighed
John, thinking of all the improve
ments the money could make.
"Better live in the old house a few
years longer, than part with i«s head
forever," insisted Mrs. Matthews, and
she carried her point, .for before the
morrow's sun went down a staunch,
able-bodied man had agreed, for the
sum of five hundred dollars, to face
death in John's place.
The mouths passed away—Maggie
went to join the white-robed throng
in Heaven, and before the June roses
were again in bloom, the angel of
Peace had spread her wings over a
torn and bleeding country. The
years as they came and went, left
their blessings on the home of the
Matthews. A new house took the
place of the old one, and the former
landmarks were widened for the rich
harvests, and the large increase from
tho flocks filled to overflowing the
coffers of the honest farmer, One by
one his boys ard girls went out from
beneath the sheltering love of the
dear old roof, to build up homes for
themselves. At last only lloy, the
baby, remained to stay aud comfort
them in their declining years
It was Decoration Day, 1874, that
John Matthews announced his deter
mination of running down to the city
to see the procession. His heart burn
ed within him as he listened to the
thrilling tales of suffering and death
that the memories of the day called
forth. While standing in a quiet cor
ner watching the old veterans strew
ing the graves of their comrades, the
sobs of a little girl near him touched
a tender place in his great, warm, lov
ing heart. Moving up near her he
inquired the cause of her distress.
"My papa was a soldier, but his
grave is far, far away, and nobody
puts flowers on it. Mamma always
cries on Decoration Day, and says if
papa had only lived, we would have
a pleasant home like other folks."
'•What is vour mother's name?"
a9ked the kind man when he thought
of the bill he would send her, when
ho should reach home.
"Mary I'ritchard," answered the
child. John Matthews gave a quick
start, but controlled his voice to ask
the father's name.
"Lenox—Lenox Pritchard; and I
had a little brother Lenox, but he
died, to." the little one ran on in an
artless way, but John Matthews
heard only the name "Lenox Prit
chard," and and asked: "What regi
ment did he belong to?" "One hun
nred and Fortieth Pennsylvania,"
was the reply. "The same," he
mused. "It must be my man. Sure
ly there would not be two of such an
uncommon name in the same regi
He plied the child with other ques
tions, but she could only tell that
she was an infant when her father
went away, and was now almost
eleven years old, and that her name
was Nell. The ceremonies in the
cemetery being over, he asked her to
take him to her mother. At the
door the older sister, Alice, met
Without waiting for au introduc
tion, he said: "This little girl tel's
me that her father's name was Lenox
Pritchard, and that he was a member
of the One Hundred and Fortieth
"Yes, and he was killed at Spott
sylvania, May 12, 18G4."
"Did he volunteer, or ?"
"He went as a substitute for a gen
tleman who had been drafted," she
"I thought so. Can you tell me
that man's name?" he asked hoarsely.
"I never heard the name,l believe,"
said Alice looking at her questioner
"I'd give a good deal to know,"
"I can ascertain from mother. Sl-e
knows all about the enlistment,"
If you would allow me to speak to
her myself I would be greatly oblig
ed," the farmer ventured.
"Certainly, but yon will find us in
straightened circumstances," she an
swered, leading the way up the rick
ety stairs. The room to which sue
ushered him was neat and clean but
almost destitute of furniture. Tjc
emaciated mother was ly'ng on the
only bed the room possessed.
Plunging right into business, he
was not loDg in ascertaining that tue
Lenox "ritchard he sent away from
wife and children, and the Lenox
Pritchard who slept on the lonely
battle field were identical.
"That man died for me," he ex
claimed. "My bones ought to be
mouldering in that lonely grave, and
Lenox Pritcbi.rd ought to be here
providing for his helpless family."
"It was no fault of yours, Mat
thews. If he had not gone for you
he would have gone for some one
else. He was out of work and accept
ed your offer eagerly. The next
morning he went off in good spirits,
but he never came back again. A
friend marked his grave, but I have
no hopes of ever looking upon the
spot where he lies buried.
"These memorial days bring back
my griefs afresh, but my Father's
hand is in it all, and soon I shall join
them in the land where farewells aro
"You must come out to the country
and get a breath of pure air. A few
of our sunshiny days would put new
life into your blood, and my good
wife would soon bring roses back to
the cheeks of these pale damsels,
whom I cheated out of a father," said
John Matthews drawing his sleeve
across his eyes.
It was arranged finally that he
should call in a week for the desolate
family, but he did not leave until he
had slipped, a gold eagle into the poor
wasted hand outstretched to him at
"Mary," said he, after rehearsing
his story in the presence of his wife
and son, "I have about concluded to
give that little cottage in town to Mrs
Pritchard and her children. It would
be mighty easy to haul a load of coat
now and then, or throw some wood
or apples into the wagon when we
are going to mill. You know we
would never miss such things "
"But we must give so we will miss,
John. Just think what your fate
would have been if Lenox Pritchard
had not died in your stead. It's no
charity, but a debt we owe this fam
"You are right, Mary. While
John Matthews lives his substitute's
wife and children shall not want."
The little cottage was neatly fur
nished, and a week later Mrs. Prit
chard and family found a pleasant
home beneath its roof. ♦ Through
their benefactor's influence Alice se
cured a class in music and once more
the joyous tinge of health came back
to her mother's wan face. To make
our story complete I must tell you of
a quiet wedding celebrated at that
home a few years later, when Alice
wore the orange blossoms, and Dr.
Roy Matthews placed the wedding
ring upon her finger.
Little Nell is a teacher now herself,
but she will never forget the day
when Matthews came to her ormng
the graves of the dead heroes, who
had friends to weep for them.
In a quiet corner of the village
churchward, far removed from the
noise and bustle of the city, there is a
solitary grave, marked by a plain
monument, with the name of Lenox
Pritchard inscribed upon it. On
Decoration Day it is so.ewn with
more flowers and wet with more tears
than those of Nell and her mother.

the lovers were gawking around the

sent to the police in every direction,

This account of memorial day here
would be incomplete without a notice
of the rare entertainment in the even

lect school of Bruin, which reflects
great credit on teacher and pupils,
and as a patriotic, literary and me
morial entertainment was a success.
EDS. CITIZEN: If mankind were
simply to follow the footsteps of their
ancestors ; if the old ways were the
only ways ; if no new thoughts or
ideas were advanced; if each gen
eration were simply to imitate their
ancestors, how much advancement
would be checked; how little pro
gress our prosperous Nation would
make by her second centennial ; how
many pleasantries of life would never
help cheer us on our way Thanks,
then, to those who spare neither time
nor pains in entertaining friends,
and especially when that entertain
ment tends to elevate mentally, mor
ally and religiously.
Although the 2Gth of May, 1887,
was not so bright and serene as the
poet can picture, yet by previous in
vitations friends poured into the resi
dence of Mr. and Mrs. A. G. Stewart,
of Connoquenessing township, intent
upon celebrating the silver wedding
of their host and hostess. The re
ception given to guests upon their
arriving was all that could be desired.
The dinner was far beyond our de
scription, but it is sufficient to say
that to the eye it was gorgeous, and
the hour spent in trying to annihilate
some of the good things which the
family had prepared was the most
enjoyable hour that could be spent
among the luxuries of life.
Of those invited about ninety were
present. After this sumptuous feast
the bride and bridegroom were ush
ered into the parlor The assembly
was called to order and Judge J. F.
Stewart, of Kentucky, brother of the
groom, was chosen President, and E.
J. McJunkin Secretary. The Presi
dent upon taking the chair spoke in a
verv pleasing aud entertaining man
ner. A great many valuable pres
ents awaited an owner, and Rev. J.
W. Miller, of I'ortersville, in a very
masterly way presented these pres
ents to proper ones. Of tbe presents
we will name but a few of tbe many.
Probably the one most prized was a
large crayon portrait of little Georgie,
deceased, son of A. G. and M. E.
Stewart, in a most beautiful frame,
presented by M. S. Hays, brother of
Mrs. Stewart, of Kausas. A draft
for twenty-five dollars from A. H.
Hays, brother of Mrs. Stewart, of
Kansas; an elegant fruit dish by
Judge J. F. Stewart and lady; a
lovely set of silver individual butter
dishes bv t Mrs. Maggie Campbell, of
Lawrence county; Mrs. Rice, of
Michigan, sister of Mrs. Stewart, pre
sented an album ; silver butter knife
and beautiful table scarf by Mrs.
Clark ; a Japanese tea caddy aud tea
by Mr. Alex. Stewart and lady; wil
low rocker by J. R. McJunkin ; two
lovely butter dishes, one by Mrs.
Roth, of Rochester, a sister of Mrs.
Stewart, Mrs. I>. 11. Williams, of
Kansas; a handsome pickle castor
by Samuel Bolton and family ; a fine
crystal glass set by John Martin and
lady. There were numerous other
presents fully as yaluable and as
highly prized by the recipients, but
time aud space forbid our mentioning
Mr. John Martin, of Prospect, by
request of recipients thanked the do
nors tor their remembrances.
Mr. Elliott Robb was called on and
said his fort was in speaking to chil
dren. After learning this and know
ing that children are more difficult to
entertain than their elders, we were
not disappointed in expecting a fine
address. In this address the speaker
noticed the change of twenty-five
years and the difficulty in choosing
a partner for this period which can or
will at all times keep her better-half
in a picture humor. In reply for re
marks J. 11. McJunkin spoke of the
pleasantries of such a meeting; of
the seeming neglect of cultivating
friendship, and of the benefit of such
gatherings. Mr. B. I)odds was
called for several times, but could not
be found. It was supposed from Mr.
Weigle's story that he was unfit for
duty, because of his undertaking a
task at the table, which was not
completed and that he was either la
boring or resting for a moment. Mr.
John Martin spoke in behalf of friends
and neighbors thanking the family
for their hospitality and kindness.
Closed by singing the twenty-third
Psalm and prayer by Rev. Miller
l But it was not intended that the
senior friends and neighbors of Mr.
and Mrs. A. G, Stewart were the
only ones to enjoy this silver wed
ding. Accordingly the invitations
requested the attendance of their
young friends in day and evening if
possible, but especially to be present
in the evening. Consequently as
evening approached the numbers in
creased and merry-making became
the order of the evening. Many new
acquaintances were formed and all
entered into the games with a spirit
During the day and evening Miss
Mollie Martin and Miss Nettie Stew
art presided at the organ. In the
midst of the general amusement it
was announced that refreshments
awaited us. All engaged in this part
of the programme as heartily as could
be well imagined.
After enjoying games and amuse
ments of the evening for a time, sep
aration came. All left feeling that
one day just passed, in their lives one
chapter in life's history which they
could look* back upon, not with regret,
but with pleasure and pride.
Is the Horse Intelligent.
From the Chicago Journal.]
It always seemed to me that there
was a great deal of superstition, I
may say, about the intelligence of the
horse. Sauntering up to an express
man at the corner of Monroe and
Dearborn streets the other day I said
to him: "llow much does a horse
know?" "A horse, sir?" he replied.
"A horse knows as much as man—
just exactly. My horse there knows
everything, jnst like a man."' This
is the way everybody talks who
owns a horse or who tends horses,
and it all seems to me to be non
I have seen horses walk around a
post until they had wound up the
bridle and then stand all day with
their heads bound down to the post
because they didn't have sense enough
to walk the other way and unwind
the bridle. 1 have seen them get a
foot over the bridle, when tied to a
ring in the pavement, and then go
ijto fits because they didn't have
sense enough to lift the their feet
over the bridle again. I have seen
them prance around in a burniug
barn, with their tails and maues on
fire, and burn to -death, because they
did not have sense enough to run out.
Anybody can steal a horse without
any objection from the horse. A
horse will stand and starve or freeze
to death with nothing between him
and a comfortable stall and a plenty
of oats except an old that he
could kick down with one foot,or that
could be opened by removing a pin
with his teeth. If this is a high de
gree of intelligence, even for a brute,
then I am lacking in that article my
self. Compared with the dog,the ele
phant, or even the parrot, the horse
seems to me to be a perfect fool.
Time to Cut Grass,
Experience differs somewhat as to
the proper time to cut grass, but it
may be taken as a general rule that
timothy should be mown just about
the time it is in blossom, and clover
when the blossoms are about half out.
All ruminating animals seem to like
hay better when it is cut about the
second blossom (timothy,) but horses
prefer it a little older. It is an error
to suppose, a3 many do, that timothy
cut in blossom will make dusty hay,
and bo conducive to heaves in horses.
But there is another cause for this
dust It is cutting it early in the
morning when it is laden with high
dews. It falls in a wet, compact mass
on the ground, and it will be im
possible to cure it as bright and clean
as if cut after the dew is off. The
dew and the drying or curing causes
particles of leaves and fibers to loosen
and they make the dust which is too
often seen in hay, when it is thrown
from the mow to fodder. The
brighter your timothy the better,
whether for feeding at home or for
market. Watch the weather and put
up your hay if possible unwet by
heavy rains. Remember the old
adage "Make hay while the sun
shines." This to be taken verbatim
"A Tough Crowd."
The Sharon, Pa., Herald says that
the Doris & Colvin circus which ex
hibited there lately, ia composed of
about as arrant a crowd of swindlers
as could well get together. They
weren't the mere hangers-on, which
accompany every eircus more or less,
but included the whole management
apparently, the whole arrangement
showing that every facility was be
ing extended for swindling the public.
The principal racket, outside of the
thiuiblerig boards, which were run
openly on the grounds and in the
side shows, was a sort of flim-flam
game, of asking people, whom they
supposed had money about them, to
give them paper money for silver, of
which they professed to have too
much. On receiving a bill they
would object that it wasn't of large
enough denomination, or for more
than they had silver just then, or
made some other objection, and
handed back apparently the same bill
they had received, folded up, which
in nine cases out of ten, in the crowd,
the owner would stuff into his vest
pocket without unfolding or looking
at very closely, but when he would
afterwards pull it out he would find
it was only a dollar bill, instead of a
five, ten or a twenty, that he had
A Remedy for Pneumonia
A well known and successful Erie
county physician who has retired
from practice, requests t lie Oazelte to
publish the following remedy for
pneumonia: Take six or ten raw
onions, according to their size, and
chop fine; put them in a stew pan
or spider oven over a good fire, add
about the same quantity of rye meal
and vinegar, enough to form a thick
paste ; let it simmer from five to ten
minutes, and then apply to the chest
in a cotton or linen bag as hot as the
patient can bear; renew with an
other as it gets cool, and continue in
thi" manner until the patient is out
of daDger, which will surely be the
case in a few hours. This simple
remedy should be known in every
family, as its value is inestimable.

\ Oa May sth a sliek-tongued indi
vidual came prancing iuto town,
scorning anxious to sell a contrivance
for constructing wire-paling fences,
for which he was agent. In spite of
his representations to the effect that
a fence put up with the assistance of
his machine would increase the yield
of everything green, he found no pur
chasers. lie finally visited Mr. R.
M Craig, who resides just uorth of
town in Pine township, and tried to
induce him to buy what all seemed
determined to deny themselves. Mr.
Craig relused absolutely to have any
thing to do with it. The stranger
then understood Mr. Craig was one
of the most influential citizens of the
vicinity, and a man whose judgment
was greatly respected—would not
Mr. Craig kindly recommend his ma
chine? Mr. Craig was not yet caught
Would not Mr. Craig at least give
him his address, asked the stranger.
It was bis custom to get the uarnes
of the best citizens of the community
he visited, would not Mr. Craig kind
ly write down his address so that if
he wished, he might communicate
with a person whom every one re
spected, and whose name on a postal
card was as good a recommendation
as many other names on a certificate
of character! Mr. Craig, probably
more to get rid of the importunate
knave than from any other motive,
wrote his name on what he supposed
was a postal card and the fellow de
parted. Last week another persou
made his appearauce at Mr. Craig's
residence and said that the machine
he ordered bad arrived, produced a
written order with the name of R. M.
Craig attached and demanded the
price, S2OO. Mr. Craig was astonish
ed. The tallow was bland but decid
ed, and by threats of immediate pros
ecution he finally induced the victim
to give a note for the amount. Here
ends the story for tbe present. Mr.
Craig will not pav the note unless be
finds he must and has consulted an

Gambling in Coffee.—Why the
Crop Will Cost §120,000,000
More this Year than Ever Be
Coffee is higher than it has ever
been before for any considerable time.
The coffee situation, therefore is in
teresting, not to say serious. Gam
bling in it is just now wilder than in
any stocks or in any other produce.
The price has advanced 100 per cent,
in a year; and if the lowest and high
est prices are taken, 150 per cent. If
the present situation continues, the
coffee drinkers in the United States
will pay $50,000,000 more for it than
they paid in 1885, and $00,000,000
more than they pJd in 1832. The
rise in price is, therefore, equal to the
imposition of about $1 on every man,
woman and child (whether coffee
drinkers or not) in the country. And
if the movement upward contiuues,
coffee will pass out of the daily use of
the people and become a luxury.
The cause of this startling advance
in price is three-fold. The consump
tion has increased much more rapidly
than the supply. In 1867 the con
sumption per capita was 4.77 pounds;
in 1873, the first year after it was
put on the free list, it was 9.67; in
1884 it was 9.59, and it has since in
creased. The range of prices has
been for fair Rio, in 1860, 13 cents;
in IS7O 10 to Hi cents; in 1880, 14
to 14| cents; May of last year, 9|
cents. Now it is about 20 cents.
Another cause is the chance given
for gambling by the necessary lack of
trustworthy crop reports. There is
no concerted news gathering in iu
TIIE THIRD CAUSE.
Is the estimated shortness of the crop
in Brazil, which has now just been
gathered and will begin to arrive
about July 1. The Brazil crop is es
timated at from 2,250,000 to 4,500,-
000 bags. The expectation a year
ago was of a crop of from 5,000,000
to G ; 000,000, A shortage of 1,000,-
000 bags from Brazil will keep prices
where they now are. The crop in
Java also is short. In Ceylon the
leaf disease has reduced the produc
tion at least one-half. Thus the sup
ply of the very best coffee is sure to
be smaller for this year than it has
been for a generation.
The difference between clover hay
that your cattle like and that which is
not fit to be fed to anything, is the
difference between well-cured, clean
bright clover and rusty, black and
poorlv cured clover. When shall we
cut it? Before the blossoms are all
out, and never commence mowing in
the morning until the grass is dry of
dew Mow then as fast as you can
until noon or later, and about four
o'clock begin to rake the hay aQd put
it up in hay cocks, and make them
miniature stacks. It pays. But
won't the clover h'eat in such large
cocks? Certainly. You want it to.
It will cure as it will in no other way.
After the dew is off next morning
throw open the hay cocks, spread out
or shake over the clover, but do not
leave it exposed to the sun very long.
It will have a tendency to dry the
leaves and cause them to drop off,
making dusty hay. After the moist
ure is dried up, haul the hay to the
barn as fast as possible. If there is
no other moisture than the juice of
the hay, it will not spoil, eveu if it
heats. It is, however, a good plan
to put a load or so of straw on top the
mow, to take up excess of moisture.
But bear this in mind that there is a
vast difference between wet hay and
green hay. It will not do to treat
the former as you would the latter.

The beneficial effect of frequently
passing tiie horse hoe or oae-horse
harrow between the rows of corn dur
ing the earlier stages of its growth
depends on various circumstances,
says the Practical Fanner. With a
strong soil, dry enough to become
well pulverized by the operation, the
effect is nearly always advantageous.
But if such soil is rather wet the
tread of the horse and the passage of
the horse-hoe packs the soil and
hardens it; and, if dry weather fol
lows. the crop is actually diminished.
