A Miser Brought to Terms.
ROBERT CAItltACK.of tlie renown
ed Glasgow Bblp Bank Company,
was one of the greatest scrubs in money
matters that Glasgow ever knew. He
died about fifty years ago worth nearly
a niillfou sterling, leaving no family of
hisaown, and not a farthing to any one
of the charitable institutions of his city.
His housekeeper, an elderly dame, Miss
Palnsley, was his favorite niece. They
lived in a dark, dingy building; and,
while Bobert Carrack was famed for his
great banking negotiations in the flat
below, Miss Painsley was notorious for
the most miserly management In the
flat above. She would haggle with the
shopkeepers in the neighborhood about
the price of a pound of cheese, and If
" Robin," as he was called, had a dinner
party (of rare occurrence), she would be
seen hurrying from the meat market In
King street with a sheep's head and a
string of flounders, and she Invariably
stipulated with the green-grocers In the
Candleriggs that if any apples or pears
should be left over after the dessert at
Robin's table they should be taken back
on the following morning and full value
allowed for them.
No wonder Robin amassed riches by
this way of living I On one occasion he
was waited on by a deputation of three
citizens for a subscription to some public
charity or other,then of pressing Import
ance. They expected that he being a
banker, aud well knowing the urgent
circumstances, would head the list with
a handsome snm. To their mortification
he would only give " twa guineas."
When they pressed him a little he re
plied "he could not afford to give them
any more," and bowed them out of the
room. Not far from the bauk was the
warehouse of John M'llquham, then
doing good business in Glasgow. When
the deputation waited on him, he glanc
ed over the list of subscribers, but mused
and remarked on the trifling amount
given by Banker Carrlck. The gentle
men told him the reason they had got
so little, viz. : That he could not af
ford to give any more."
" What is that you say J exclaimed
old M'llquham, rising from his seat
with bristling indignation.
They repeated the answer truly.
"James," said he to his cashier,
bring me the Bblp Bank book, and a
cheque, and a pen." With that lie filled
up the cheque for 15,000 sterling.
" Run down," he siild,as fust as you can
and lake care and get that money for
me, and the gentleman here will plense
wait till ye come bnck."
; The cheque was presented. Robin
stared, and rubbed bis spectacles more
" Go back," said he, " to Mr. M'llqu
ham, with my compliments, aud suy
there must be some mistake here."
" What I" said he, when that message
was brought to him, "will he not give
me my own money out of the bank V
Go back instantly and tell him there Is
no mistake whatever on my part. I'm
waiting for the mney."
On this Robert got nervous and alarm
ed, for there had been an understanding
between him and his customer that
when an unusual supply of money was
required a day or two's notice was to be
" What's wrong with yu V" said the
banker, as he toddled up, finding it
necessary now so to do, to Mr. M'Uqu
batn's warehouse. "What's wrong
to day, Mr. M'llquham V"
"Nothing wrong with me,I hope, Mr.
Carrlck, but there's vurely something
very far wrong with yourself, for when
these decent gentlemen sitting yonder
called for me they mentioned that you
could not afford to give more than two
guineas for this excellent subscription,
and if that is the case It is high time
for me to look after my deposits In
This lead to a pleasing result. Robin
at the instigation of the worthy mer
chant, now put down his name for fifty
guineas, Mr. M'llquham canceled the
cheque, and the collecting deputation
went away delighted. What the bank
er's private feelings were cun well be
Taking a Snap Judgment.
THE Rev. Jeremiah White, domestic
chaplain t Oliver Cromwell, had the
ambition to aspire to the hand of the
Lady Frances, Cromwell's youngest
daughter. The Protector was informed
of it, and having no inclination for such
an alliance, was so much concerned that
he ordered the person who told him to
keep a strict look-out, promising if he
could give him any substantial proofs
he should be well rewarded, and White
The spy followed his business so close
ly that in a little time be dogged Jerry
White as he was generally called to
the lady's chamber, and ran immediate
ly to acquaint the Protector. Oliver, in
a rage, hastened to the chamber, and
going quickly iu, found Jerry on his
knees kissing his daughter's hand.
Cromwell, in a fury, asked what it
meant. White, with a great deal of
prei-enceof mind, said:
" May it please your highness, I have
a long time courted that young gentle
woman there, my lady's woman, and
cannot prevail. I was, therefore, hum
bly praying her ladyship to intercede
Oliver, turning to the girl, cried :
" What's the meaning of this, hussy V
Why do you refuse the honor Mr. White
would do you Y He is my friend, and I
expect you will treat him as such."
My lady's woman, who desired noth
ing better, with a very low curtesy,
" If Mr. White intends me that honor
I shall not be against him."
"Sayest thou so, my lass?" cried
Cromwell. " Call Goodwyn (one of the
preachers); this business shall be done
presently, before I go out of the room."
The Rev. Jerry had gone too far to
recede from his proposal ; his brother
parson came, and Jerry and my lady's
woman were married in the presence of
the Protector, who gave the bride five
hundred pounds as portion, to the Becret
disappointment and indignation of the
dupe of his own making, but to the
entire satisfaction of the fair ablgail,
who obtained a husband much above
her most sanguine hope or pretensions.
After the Restoration, White remained
quiescent. He died in 1707, aged seventy-eight.
When the story of his mar
riage was mentioned before Mrs. White
fwbo survived her husband) she always
simpered her assent to its truth.
. Tough Railroad Stories.
. A conductor on the Delaware and
Hudson Railroad is puzzled. A few days
ago he was running a freight train from
Schenectady to Whitehall, when he
found that the rear trucks of one of the
cars In the middle of the train were
missing, and the car had been dragged
about fifteen miles on its front trucks,
with its rear sustained somewhat by the
coupling holding to the car just behind
It At the distance named were found
the missing trucks, away down at the
foot of an embankment. How did they
get off the track, la the question. Jt re
minds the Albany Journal that several
years ago a whole freight car got out of
the middle of a train and rolled down an
embankment, and the car before it was
caught up to by the car behind it, the
coupling fastened automatically, and the
train went on without the loss being
discovered for some hours, A newspa

conductor beat hi in telling a tough story.
His First Experience with a Stove.
A SHOUT time ago an English emi
grant family arrived at Chatham,
Ontario, and being destitute of every,
thing, a few kind-hearted people gave
them sundry articles to help them to go
to housekeeplng.and among other things
a stove. The donor forgot however, to
send along the necessary pipe. The
day being very cold, the first thing the
father of the wandering flook turned
his attention to was the making of the
fire. With grateful eyes be surveyed
the stove (the first be had ever seen)
and then glancing at the stove pipe hole
in the chimney, which was about two
feet from the celllng,wondering how the
smoke could get up and out that small
hole. His eyes rested on some hooks in
the ceiling, which a former tenant used
for drying apples thsreon, and he natur
ally came to the conclusion that they
were Intended to hang the stove npon.
There was no time to be lost, and so
with the aid of chairs and a table, and a
good deal of exertion, the able-bodied
man lifted the stove up so that the
stovepipe hole, which happened to be at
the side of the stove, rested nicely in the
hole in the chimney, while his better
half lashed it to the afore mentioned
hooks with a rope which came around
their scanty luggage. After everything
was secure the patient housewife hasten
ed to prepare some wood wherewith to
make a fire, while the presplring father
was designing in his perplexed mind
some kind of a scaffold whereon his
wife could st and to cook the frugal meal
But his ideas were overthrown by the
sudden appearance of the donor of the
stove.bearing the forgotten pipe. An ex
planation was in order, and after a hearty
laugh the bewildered Englishman was
thoroughly initiated in the mysteries of
tho American way of putting up stoves.
The Text Aptly Turned.
Of a clergyman in Massachusetts,
whose pugilistic propensities caused him
to be called bobind his back "the fight
ing parson," it is said that one of his
parishioners asked him to preach from
Matthew V. 38: "Whomsoever shall
smite thee on the right cheek, turn to
him the other also." Certainly he
would, the next Bunday. And there
was a great crowd to hear how one of
his temperament would treat such a
subject. After giving out the text, he
said the meaning was very clear and tho
doctrine very satisfactory. . " If a man
smite thee on thy right cheek, it may
have been in sudden passion and repent
ed of at once. You should bear it, and
turn to him the other cheek in order to
learn what his intention is; but if he
tmite you again, let bitn have it; for
there is no scripture against that!"
There is no accounting for tastes. Mrs.
Lincoln, of Boston, keeps two big pet
lions, and now we hear of a Western
farmer who has domesticated a lot of
creatures that belonged quite as appro
priately out of doors. In the middle of
his parlor he has a curious republic of
industrious hornets ; their nest hanging
to the celling by the same twig on which
it was so admirably built and contrived
in the woods. Its removal did not
displease tbem, for they found In his
bouse plenty of food, and he left a hole
open in one of the panes of the window,
which answered all purposes. By this
kind of usage they became quite harm
less. They lived on the flies which
were troublesome through the summer.
They were constantly busy in catching
them, even on the eyelids of the chil
dren. By their assistance the family
were but little troubled with files. All
the household were so accustomed to
their strong buzzing that no one felt
any fear of them, and though they are
fierce and vindictive, yet kindness and
hospitality has made them useful and
C?At Cape of Good Hope, near Table
Mountain, the clouds come down very
low now and then without dropping any
rain. At such a time, if a traveler
should go under a tree for shelter from
the threatening storm, he will find him
self in a drenching shower; whlleoutln
the open, away from any tree or shrub,
everything would be as dry as a bone.
The explanation of the phenomenon is,
that the cloud or mist is rather warmer
than the leaves ; and so, when it touches
them it is changed into clinging drops,
which look like dew. Fresh drops keep
forming, which run together, and at
length the water drips off the leaves like
rain. And this process .is continued
until the clouds lift, and the sun comes

SUNMY REAMIT3. ;
A Beautiful Incident.
On board the II I-fitted steamer, Sett,
wanhakn, was one of the Flak Unlver
slty singers. Before leaving the burning
steamer and committing himself to the
merciless waves lie carefully fastened
upon himself and wife life preservers.
Borne one cruelly dragged away that of
the wife, leaving her without hope, ex
cept as she could cling to her husband.
This she did, placing her hands firmly
upon his shoulders, and resting there
until her strength becoming exhausted
she said, " I can hold on no longer."
' Try a little longer," was the response
of the wearied and agonized husband :
"let us sing Rock of Ages.'" And as
the sweet strains floated over those
troubled waters reaching the ears of the
sinking and dying, little did they know,
those sweet singers of Israel, whom they
But lo I aa they sang, one after another
of the exhausted ones were seen raising
their heads above the overwhelming
waves, Joining with a last effort in this
sweet, dying, pleading prayer :
"Kock of ages, cleft tor me,
Let me bide myself In thee."
With the song seemed to come strength,
another aud yet another was encouraged
to renewed efforts.
Boon in the distance a boat was seen
approaching. Could they hold out a
little longer t Binging still, they tried;
and soon, with superhuman strength,
laid hold of the life-boat, upon which
they were borne in safety to laud.
This is no fiction ; it was related by
the singer himself, who said he "believ
ed Toplady's s weet 'Rock of Ages' saved
many another besides himself and wife."
The Lord's Prayer.
The Lord's Prayer is short, mysteri
ous, and like treasures of the spirit, full
of wisdom and latent senses; it is not
improper to drawforth these excellencies
which are intended and signified by
every petition, that by so excellent
authority we may know what it is law
ful to beg of God Jeremy Taylor.
A maiden knelt in the twilight hour,
and, clasping her hands.ferventiy breath
ed forth, " Our Father who art iu heav

A mother, In deep agony of grief,
gazed on her child, sleeping her long,
last sleep, a smile wreathing her soft
Hps, and white hands folded across that
still and pulseless heart, and kneeling
there, the living beside the dead, she
prays: " Thy will be done."
As the early beams of the orient gild
the sleeping land, a widow with her
Buffering little ones, called by poverty
and woe, bows at the Tyrone of Grace,
and fervently prays : " Give us this day
our daily bread."
An aged father, as his loved and lov
ing boy goes forth from the paternal
care to brave the cold frowns of life,
kneels beside him on the eve of his
departure, and pleads : " Lead him not
Into temptation, but deliver him from
evil, for thine is the kingdom, the power
and the glory, forever and ever. Amen."
Respect yourselves and act according
ling and other men will learn to respect
you. The world is generous, and at
first takes a man at his own estimate of
himself. Ifhe is able to meet the world's
expectations all goes well, If not all goes
ill. Make yourself a gentleman and
everybody will help you to carry your
sack ; but, as the German says, " Make
yourself an ass and you'll have evetf

her friend, " to appear so happy and

was the reply, " and thus easily keep
