Behold, the kingly scepter
Of her days of pomp and pride,
And the throne that stood beneath her

And go shouting on their way;

The Fountain of St. Claire.
In the little village of Beauce, in France,
lived the family of Jerome Estival, a sol
dier of the Imperial Guard, who had been
obliged by loss of health 'to retire from act
ive service. His wife, formerly the waiting
maid of a lady of high rank, was a most
worthy, industrious woman; and from her
little Mau, then nine years old, had inherit
ed her bright face and gentle, refined man
ners, while Tommy, their son, a boy of ten,
and an active, handsome, dashing looking
fellow, was the very countepart -of his fath
er in a certain straightforward, honest truth
fulness that won the respect of everybody.
Jerome himself, with_his six feet of bight,
bis erect bearing, determined tread, andim
mense moustache, made every one think he
must be a perfect terror to his wife and
children; and yet a more devoted husband
or affectionate father could not be found—
that is, if his family did nothing contrary
to his ideas of right, for he had lived s,)
long in field and camp that he thought it
the first duty to obey orders. Thus it hap
pened that the little Estivals were brought
up with-the strictness of young conscripts,
and would as soon have thought of flying
as of disobeying.
Now, beautiful and fertile as was the
neighborhood of Beauce, unfortunately
there was a great lack of wider. There was
plenty of it, such as it was, but none fit for
drinking, and so the supplies for all families,
high and low, had to be brought from a
pure and beautiful spring at some distance
from the town, and known as " The Eoun
tuin of "St. Claire."
Every morning' the -Old soldier went him
self with a couple of pails suspended to a
yoke about his neck, iind 'bought home the
supply for the dav ; but wishing to accus
tom his children to it, so that if he was in
capacitated they might be safely trusted, he
got for each a little jug, and in, the evening
sent them for the little more that was want
ed. Tommy liked this above all things, for
on his way he met some children of his
neighborhood with whom he seldom failed
to stop and play. The trounie - was - tum, ne
somet Imes forgot all but the play, and stay.
ed so long that lie had to run all the way
home, and get there so red in the face and
so dripping with sweat that his poor mother
was greatly disturbed, and distressed herself
by thinking how her husband was injuring
the boy by giving him work for which he
was not strong enough.
Tommy's conscience wicked him, and he
was a hundred times o the point of telling
the cause of his heat, b t dread of his fath
er's displeasure proven ed., He would not
have told a lie for hi right hand, but he
dared not tell her the t 1M
One day when his fat ter was absent Tom
my was very late in getting back, and his
mother and sister watched for him in The
greatest distress. At last, Nisa, with noth
ing but her little red handkerchief tied over
her bead, set off to meet 'him. At last she
saw him sitting sad and silent on a stone
beside the fountain. Supposing him hurt,
or ill; she ran wildly to him. But no, it was
only an accident that had befallen li m.—
"Somehow or another the ridiculous ng,"
he said, "had got broken—and now, how
father would scold!"
Poor Nisa stood confounded. " Yes, in
deed, and a new jug, too."
I "If it was only a scolding," said Tommy,
' '` I could bear it; but perhaps'he will whip
Me, and I assure you his hand strikes very
The discussion lasted some time. Nisn
agreed that papa would be very angry, but
consoled herself with the thought that they
did not often vex him; but Tommy thought
decidedly that he had better not go home
again, but seek his fortune elsewhere. The
only objection to this was the grief it would
cause his mother. At last Nisa Imuounced
with delight that she had a Most excellent
idea, which was that be should take her jug
and pass ofi the broken ono as hers. Papa
would scold her, to be sure, but that was.
tolerable; ho would never undertake to beat
But to this Tommy would by no means
agree. What! he sutra coward as to shrink
from punishment., and then shelter himself
behind his little sister! •` But I tell you,"
persisted Nisa, " that I shall not mind it it
the least, for I shall feel sure all the time
yon know, that I do not deserve it, and i
will be a positive pleasure to the to be scold
ed for you." But no, Tommy would not
listen to it at all. "So come;" said he, "I'll
face the danger at once."
Just ahillis moment they beard themselves
called, and saw over the wall the black eyes
and the pretty brown face of Madame Fre
mont, the wife of the richest farmer in the
district. She had overheard every word,
and now came to their relief, declaring that
Nisa's generosity and Tommy's manline.:4
equally deserved her favor. " Here,",_ said
she, "I have a jug of just the same size as
yours, anti new, too; so take it .and give me
the broken one. Tommy ' s accident will
then be remedied without a falsehood, and
Nisa's kind heart saved the pain of seeing
him punished."
The children gladly accepted the oiler, as
the lady had neither father nor mother to
scold her, but were very curious to know
whtit she wanted of the btohen jug. "I
would not exchange said the kind WO
man, " for a porcelain one; and promise
me, my boy, to be always as much afraid of
telling a lie ns you are now."
" I never told one in my life, Madame

promise not to tell papapf this?"
Madame Fremont laughed. "Be as dis
creet as I shall be, my sett," said she, " and
you will have no reasoMto repent it." And
gathering up the broken -bits of the jug,
they parted, the children declaring her the
best woman living " except mamma."
Months passed on, 4nd there came a bit
terly cold and hard winter. Estival, whose
little pension had just been reduced, hardly
knew which way to turn for bread, and old
as he was—over sixty—undertook the task
'of a " fagoteur," or wood peddler. Some
times he got a job from the farmers and did
a little better, but not much. ,At last he
told his wife one day that they must give
up, for, work as he would, he could not
earn enough to live on. "No, indeed!"
/said Madame Estival, "we don't give up
yet, for I have still the rich gold chain ,my
lady gave me; we can !urn that to bread for
a little while."
" Sure enough!'.' extimed Jerome, fairly
dancing with joy at , he_ thought. how
came Ito forget? There's that sandal-wood
pipe that Emir gave m from his own -lips
in Egypt when I saved his head from being
laid open by a saber-stroke. Why, the
mouthpiece on it would ransom a prince!" '
"And f," chimed in Nisa; " there ard'iny
CRT rings that you gave me, mulling ; they
lare pure gold!' " Asel"- cried 'rummy,
"and my gold studs!" So it was determin
ed not to die of starvation just yet.
-But the discussion was interrupted by a
great, clemsy farm lad who came staggering
in:under the weight of n. great hisket of
grain, which he pit down, and handed Es-
Livid a, note which ran thus,: "The peiple
of Tout)! cannot. suffer hunger to enter the
home of 'a brave man who his shed' his
blood to defend them, and therefore beg
him to accept this gl'aih, which wit! be re
newed every Saturday."
" Yes, I accept it, and without a blush!"
said the old Man; and he' gave the lad a Cup
of sour wine, and determined t 6 go the next
- day and thank-the magistrate in person.—
So' he , did, and found that the town 'knew
nothing about it; therefore, when, the next
Saturday; the had came again, he positively
refused to take it until he knew Mei sent it..
- "Nonsenste" said the lad; they told me to
mention no names, and now you will go and
get me into trouble for minding orders_"
"You are right," replied Estival,' "but.
tell your employer that it is the last I reeeive
until I know his name."
The next week'ctune a third supply,
plenty of sugar-bread and .cakes' lot -the
children. The old man •was ordering ,the
gifts to be taken back, when the little-tenes ;
aided by their mother, begged so :hard for
the dainties that he was forced to yield as
to them, • but *dared he,would not touch.
the grain unless the lad told him who- sent
it. " Just tell me, old man!"
the boy,
forgetting his politer in anger, "when
you were in servlee c if they had told you to
,break orders would you have done it?"
"I'd like to sea the man that thinks. I
would," replied the old man fiercely. "Well,
then," replied the boy, "why do you think
I'm going to? I won't,l can tell you, once
'for all—but they did say I might, tell the.
young 'uns that the basket grew by the
Fountain' of St. Claire."
"It is Madame Fremont! It is Madame
Fremont!" exclaimed both children'in the
same breath. And Tommy, turning to his
sister and imitating , Madame Fremont's
voice, •repeated her words: "Beas discreet
as I shall be, my non, and you will have no
reason to repent it."
"Yes, that's. just the way she said it,"
cried - Nitta,' clapping her hands; and
then turning to her perplexed father, she
told him for the first time- bf her brother's
misfortune and the proposition that she had
made to save him from punishment.
"And - you didn't accept it boy?" said the
old man sternly.
"Of. course not, air!" replied the boy
glad to hear it," exclaimed the fath
er,,drawing his breath as if relieved. "-Any
thing but a lie; and to act one is as bad as
to speak it! But I might know you could
not have been mean enough for that; so
come here and let me rub hese moustaches
of mine against your cheeks, my noble fel:
low! I - should have beaten you, that's cer
tain I—and then been sorry for it afterward I"
And with the big tears rolling down his
bronzed face, be folded the boy in his arms
and blessed him, •
" Well, well!" said he, as if ashamed of
the feeling he had shown, and trying to
Shake it off; "so it is the .good Madame

So it was. "And after the broken jug was
examin&l, it was decided that the whole
family should go the next day to Madame
Fremont's farm and thank ber for her gen
erous and timely help.
"No she won't, sir," answered the lad.
" She 'flint worked off all her notion yet;

head, she Bever‘ ,1 ."

Av.4l, Dlie •-is," replied - ,Te,
xonte coolly; and the next morning, all in
their best clothes, the whole party waited
upon 7vla(hunc Fremont to thank her for all
her kindnesses. ' The old soldier—in his uni
form, of course—made a fornral speech, full
of praises and glatitude, but ending with a
positive assurance that he meant to receive
no more favors.
"I don't menu to ask you to, and .never
did," said the little woman saucily, eyeing
the old man from head to foot. "I sent my
favors to these little darlings of mine, in re
turn for their having afforded me, at the
Foutthritt of St. Claire, some of the most
delightful moments I ever enjoyed in my
life. In spite of your big moustache; Mon
sieur, and your great stern eves,y I mean to
love all my days a boy NOW, like that one,

you, than tell a lie or take ad Vantage of his
sister's generosity; and a girl 'who, like my
friend Nisa, proposed to take a beating her
,to cave her brother front one. I tell
you what, Monsieur, I made a grand bargain
when I changed my new jug for that broken
one; and I promised then, with the help of
God, to use it for good. And now there is
not a man in the world, not even an old offi
cer in the Imperial Guard, that can. make
me break my promise."
Estival, disconcerted at the strange kind
ness of the merry little woman, followed,
at her command, i#to a pleasant little room
where, on a nicely polished table, was spread
out an abundant feast. Seated around it,
they ate, drank, and were merry; and when
they were satisfied Madame Fremont thus
addressed the old soldier:
" You see, Monsieur, I have not the hap
piness of la.ting a mother. My husband was
killed very soon after we were married.—
But I mean to take your children for mine,
whether you will or not, so you may as well
submit at once, and with a _good grace. I
know, however, that Madame Bstival will
not like to part with them, so I shall keep
her, too. She can fuss about the house,
keep an eye on the milk pans, and so on,
and no doubt be a very usefill body. lint
then it would be almost cruel to send you
back to loneliness and solitude; so you can
manage farm and money affairs for me, and
save me heaps of trouble. As. to nly two
children here—Tommy you must take care
of my hooks, and Nisa you are to feed my
pigeons and poultry. There, now, it's alt
settled, so not another word from any of
And so it was all-settled, and the kind
hearted, generous woman took under herself
the whole grateful family, who strove by
every means in their power to repay her be
ne%,olence. 'Whew the old soldier died, she
laid him in his grave and consoled his be
reaved partner, who soon followed him.—
And never did the orphans find the least
'enson to think her other thim she (labile(
o be—their second mother.
"I'll tell you what," said Tommy one day
tv bis sister, " what our father said once is
true: `a fault confessed with sorrow may
bring punishment, but it brings respect, too;
and falsehood and &Celt, while they draw
down contempt, bring the two-fold punish

Fine Poem.
• The following poem was read by Emily
Huntington Miller before the Illinois Press

That brave men are staining their honor,
And good men are going astray;

A Conductor to be Trusted.
One day, before Cornelius Vanderbilt ;ob
tained possession of the - Hudson River llaki
wav, he was traveling, it is said, from Chi
cago to Alb t nny, and considering himself a
privileged character, went into the baggage
car tosmoke. lie had been enjoying his
cigar but two or three minutes, when the
conductor came along and informed him po
litely that he must not smoke there. ' Van
derbilt said it wouldn't make any difference
—that it was all right, etc.; lint, the con
ductor• was of n different opinion—declar
ing that it was contrary to the rules of the
road. '
"You don't know me," said the smoker;
"my name is Vanderbilt; I am sonietime.s
called Commodore. I generally do about
as I please."
I don't. know, nor do I Care ho you
are, Mr. Vanderbilt, .1 intend to obey the
rules. If you were ten times a Commodore
I could not permit you to smoke here; and
you must go elsewhere to finish your cigar."
The loyalty to duty displayed by Ilte con
ductor pleased Ike ancient Cornelius, and.
he went out, though not before he had saiid

1)i. Nichols, in the Journal of Chemistry,
says; The opinion we have always held
upon the question of value of green core
fodder for milch cows has been, that when
raised from broadcast sowing it is neatly
worthless, but when 'sown in hills or in
drills; and cultivated, with access of air and
sunlight, it is of high value.: During the
present season we 'have made some experi
ment to test the correctness of these views.
Stalk were collected from a field where the
seed vas SOWn brPtICICaSt, and also stalks
_in-drills npon the same field, and
they were. dried in a drying elos,ek-,: tp expel
the moisture. Both specimens were plant
ed at the snore time (the 6th of May), and it.
was found that the broadcast sowing'-enn
tabled 92 per cent. of water, these .front
drills 83 per cent. of water. Thus it was
shown that the difference of solid matter in
the two was relatively 'as 8 to 17 per cent.
The solid 'miner was composed of starch,
gum, sugar and woody fiber. There was
almost an entire absence of sugar and gum
in the stalks from the- broadcast sowing,
while the stalks that had grownnuder the
influence - oX - -light held these . nutrient
principles in considerable quantities. The
stalks were collected at the period of growth
just before the oar begins to ferns, a period.
when most farmers commence to cut the
fodder for their cows. Our experiments
upon corn fodder have afforded us import
ant information upon other points. We find
that the stalks cut before they reach a cer
tain stage of growth re deficient i 1
;p ,
cut matter, and the fore it is a waste to
feed them too early. The corn' plant, like
all other vegetable structures, has but one
object or aim in its growth, and that is to
produce seed. It is engaged during its
whole life in storing up- large quantities of
btareli, whiCh is to be . used wheit 'the press
ing occasion arrives ; or the seed vessels ma
ture, to form by sonic subtle, mysterious
changes the rich nutrient principles which
are found in seeds. As soon as this strug
gle is over, the Born plant, like an annuals,-
dies a natural death. It is not necessary
ior frost to strike it ; it dies from simple ex
haustion. The proper time to cut and feed
corn stalks is during the foul-or five weeks
which succeed inflorescence, or in-other
words, they should net be cut - until ' the
flower is fairly deVeloped, and the car com
mences to form ; and any corn that is no
planted that the ear cannot form. and .tna
lure, is practically as worthless as- fodder,—
Faripers may learn from these facts that.
corn designed to be cut for fodder should
be planted at two or three periods during
theseason; some fields quite early, others
som6what later, and still others as late as is
ssfe. In this way, when the hot, dry
months of July and August are reached, and
the pastures falter, a -supply of fodder is
secured at 1 proper stage of growth to af
ford the largest„ amount of nutriment.—Bu

The Art of Making Ices.

our Philadelphia confectioners. The for

body and line in grain as "gilt edged" Ches
