The Almighty" Dollar.
BY GEORGE LYPPARD:
They brought hiui a dollar.,
He took it, clutched it in his fong,
skinny fingers, tried its sound against
the bedpost, and then gazed at it long,
and intently with.his.dull leaden eyes.— .
That day, in the hurry, of bueinees,
Death had struck him, even in the street.
He was hurrying, to collect the . last
montlut rent; and was on the ' verge of
the miserable court where his tenente
herded beasts in their kennels—he,,
was there with his bank book , in his
hand, when Death laid his hand upon
He` -was' carried home tii his 'splendid
mansion. He was laid tipon'a bed with
a satin coverlet. The lawyer, the rela
dill's, and. the . pfeaclier :were sent for.-
All day tong' her lay without speech,' .
moving' only hie right hand, as though'
in thewct of counting money. -
At midnight hb
'He 'naked for a' dollar vend they '
Brought °Bert° hitn, and lean and gaunt
le sat up in his death bed, and• clutched
it with the grip of 'death.
A shaded lamp stood ' on a table near
the silken bed. Its light fell 'faintly
around the splendid room, where chairs:
and carpets and mirrors, silken bed*and
lofty ceiling, all said, GOLD r as , plainly
ast human lips can say it.
His hair and eyebrows were whiie, his
cheeks sunken, and his ,lips thin and,
surrounded by wrinkles that indited'the
passion of Avarice. As he'sat up to his
bed with his neck:kw:9d and the silken
coverlet - wrapped about his lean , frame,
his white hair and eyebrows contrasting.
with hie wasted and wrinkled 'face, .he
lookedlilm a ghost: And there was life
in his leaden,eye--all, that life was, cen
tered -on-the Dollar , which he gripped
id his ' _ -
- His, wife, a. pleasant faced, matronly:
woman, was' :seated at the toot nf.,,the
bed. Ills son, a.young mho of twenty
one, dressed in the latest touch of fash
ion,. sat by the lawyer. The lawyer at
before the 'table, peii in hand, and gold
spectacles on `his; ' was'
huge piechnienr spread before'him";
"Do you' think will make a will?"
asked the son.
"Tirdly dives mentis, yet," was the
whieperel reply, " Wait - He'll be
lucid after s'wtt~le:'" '
"'My dear,'' said the wife, "had not!

wilily and in measured words—but never

on the Dollar.
••Clio't you read me samething, say--

length said the rich man, tit ruing a fright

The'preactiei, whiisel'eravat wee of the
whitest, took'a book With'. golden claire
from a marble table. And he read:
"And I say ylylf,C you it is easier fora'
camel to go-through-the eye,of a needle
than.for elicit man to enter into the_
KingdoM. of - ,G0d , ."
"Who said tbose_wordswho—who=
who ?" fairly shrieked the dying man,
shaking the hand which clenched the.
Dollar at the preadhir's head.
The, pieacher has tily turned over the
leaf and did not reply.
"Why did you never tell me this be-`
fare ? Why!dfd you °Mier preach from
church ? _ Why—why ?"
The preacher did"not reply, but tuin
ed„ger !aucithOr But the dying
man would,not be quieted.
"And it's euMer
_for .a.camel to .go.

is it ? Then-what's to become of me ?

ever spare—what debtor - did I ever re
lease'? Abt Yon iit6Od up Stinilay after
Sunday andVreached to us, and never
said a word about`the camel. Notl'a
word about th&Camel."
The preacher, in search of a coneOling
passage, turned 'rapidly , over the , leans,
and, in his, confusion, gam) to .this pas
sage, which he read.:
now,:ye, rich . men, ,weep and
how l,for your miseries that shall. come
upon you. Yoiir gold and ,silver- is.

cries of them-which have, reaped are en

"And yet you never preached that , to
me 1" shrieked the dying. Man.
The preacher, who had blundered
throtigh the-passage tiom James, which
we.have quoted, knew, not wbet to . day,
was._perchauce <terrifed by the, very
look of;the.dying parishioner: -
Then the wife - drew near and strove
to-comfort-him:and tife son' ( wlio had
been ieading the 'will) attempted a
word or two-oteorieolation.
But with the Dollar in his hand 'he

of copper mine and camel, of tenant and

Thus be died.
When he - was cold, the !Wencher rose
and asked the laWyer whether the de
ceased had lett anything ,to such and
such a Charitable society which had been
engrafted upon' the preacher's church:
.-And the wife closed his eyes and
tried to wrench the - Dollar from hie
hand, but in vain. He clutched it as
'though it werethe only savior to light
him through the darkness of eternity:
And the son sat down with dry eyes
and thought of the hundreds of thous
ands that were now his own.

About a year,ago a Jew, and an en
tire, stranger, stopped over night at the
house of a.respectable farmer and miller,
in . Milford township, this county. He
represented to his host that he had an
amount of goods under bond in the New
York Holton! House, which he could
not get,. as he had no money to pay the
duty, which was $lBO, and wanted to
borrow that sum, He offered to leave
four gold watches, as collateral security
for the money, valued at $l5O each.
The farmer and miller pitied the neces
sities of the stranger and loaned him
the $lBO acid took the watches to secure
the debt. Time wore on and the stran
ger did not return to redeem the watch
as. The bolder became a little uneasy
at having them in hie possession, lest
they might be stolen and he be made
to pay for them. He now bad them
carefully examined, and found that the
eFiteheswere pinchbeck and only worth
five dollars apiece. - He was now antis;
fied that he had been the dupe of a
1 swindler. A year passed away, and his
Jew friend did hot make his appearance.
due day last week our farmer and wil
ier came to Doylestown in the cars.
When the train stopped at Whitehall
station, he saw a man on the platform
he thought Joelsed like the one who left
the watches with him, and he got out
and-asked him if he bad not stayed all
night with him about a year ago He
replied that he didn't know him. 'Ph°
woment,the stranger spoke.the recogni
tion was complete, and the lender of the
.:. " You are the man 1 I will
take you to Doylestown with me." The
Orange!: replied, " I • pays 1 I pays 1"
and suiting the action to the word pulled
opt his,pocket book and refunded the
$lBO. The truth is often stranger than
etation and this is one o
f the instances .
Altogether itie a strangeetory,.and
an. instance of unsophisticated
honesty and confidence in a stranger,
and unusual good luck in recovering the
