ThI criminal cases submitted for our
consideration have been carefully inves-
tigate4,and disposed of with as much
dispatch as'possible. But our labl,.rs were
much delayed in this respect on account
of the fact that very few witnesses'
name.4'appear to have been submitted to
the grind jury for investigation; and in
order o facilitate the workof the grand
jury, vwe would recommend that the
c0in1m 'tig officersbe required to include
the namrnes of such witnesses necessary to

A Leaking Vessel Sails.
The schooner Robert J. Barr,

five strokes per hour after receiving

In course of the insurrection in Chill
200 prisoners of war were tied together
and then shot to dewth with cannon and
mustets. There has been only one par-
allel case to this in the history of the
Anglo-Saxon race in modern times, and
that was when the sepoys of India were
tied td a cannon's mouth and the cannon
fired off, blowing them into fragments.
British generals did this in return for the
unspeakable atrocities committed by the
rebel Indians. It was done both from
a spirit of vengeance and from a desire
to terrify the wretched creatures so they
would never dare to mutiny again. But
such a punishment as this would never
be attempted again by any Anglo-Saxon.
It is left for the Soath Americans in

A Harvard professor remarks rightl3

scope than in the east, extending even td
Sthe academies and high schools, and for
the entering wedge in this direction the
country must thank Harvard.
But when the professor' goes fur-
ther and remarks that the east will al.
ways keep the lead in the matter of
.graduate and profession Al schools he is
far out of the way. There is one point
that must not be lost sight of. Where
the most money is there in course of
time will be the great universities and
'best high grade schools. In the ,nfitter
of facilities for education there is nbth-
-ing that money cannot procure. The
great fortunes of the country, excepting
only the Vanderbilt, Astor and Gould

in the west. Gould, indeed, has obtainedI
much of his wealth from western deals.

We are going to live to be a hundrc
years old, yon, I and all the rest of us
The doctors are beginning to permit it-
perhaps rv:nlizing, the sly rogues, tln
they themselves will thereby gain sev
eral extra whacks at us. They are even
telling us how we may rounn out omu
centuryy satisfactorily. A writer in The
Medical Ag- sums up the case of George
Bancrolt, who lived to be ninety-two,
He says that Bancroft's long life and re-
markal.le retention of his powers, men-
tal and physical, were due to his outdoor
exercise and his moderation, whatever
the last may mean.
In puarceling out the cheerful century
of years which we may ; i joy, the doctor
in The Medical Age says people should
be young till they are fifty, and in their
prime till seventy or s-venty-five, with
life's work completed at ninety. The
ten years from that on till they are a
hundred they may spend in having a
good time, having duly earned it.
Following are the golden rules of life
the doctor gives to people who desire
and expect to live a century:
First-Live as much as possible out of dowra,
never letting a d(lay pasa- without spending at
least three or four hours in the open air.
Second-KCoop all the powers of mind and
body occupied in congenial work, The milscles
should be developed and the mind kept active.
Third-Avoid excesses of all kinds, whether
of food, drink or of whatever nature they may
be. Be moderate in all things.
Fourth-Never despair. Be cheerful at all
times. Never give way to anger. Never let
the trials of one da(y pis over to the next.
The period from fifty to seventy-live years
should not be passed in idleness or abandon-
ment of all work. Here is whereagreat many
men fail-they resign all care or interest in
worldly affairs, anti rest of bodyand mind be-
gins. They throw up their business and retire
to private lifo, which in too many cases proves
to be a suicidal policy.
During the next period-the period from sev-
enty-five years to one hundred years-while
the powers of life are at their lowest ebb, one
cannot be too careful about "catching cold."
Bronchitis is a most prolific cause of death in
the aged. During this last period rest should
be in abundance.
Anybody who can follow all these di-
rections ought to live to be two hundred
years old at least. There is always this
comfort, however: If we cannot live up
to our ideals always we can at least try
our best to do so, and the steady effort
will be bringing us constantly nearer
Our friends the socialists, who believe
the government can and ought to do
everything for everybody, will be quite
in sympathy with the set of experiments
now making by scientific experts to as-
certain if it is possible to produce rain in
paying quantities by artificial means.,
Stranger things than that have already
been accomplished by science.
It seems that a balloon enthusiast,
Professor Carl Myers, claims to be able
to make it rain at his own sweet will
by means of the explosion of gas con-
fined in balloons, the balloons first being
sent up to an al Htitude where they can
go off and produce a tremendous ruction
among the clouds. If the electric cur-
rent is passed through a mixture con-
sisting of two parts of hydrogen gas to
one of oxygen a great explosion will fol-
low, and the two gases will combine and
form water. It jis not this water, how-
ever, the professor depends on for the
rain, but on the moisture that may be
contained in the clouds in the vicinity
of the explosion.' The powerful explo-
sion will shake the air currents, disturb
the r.:piili'.rium of things up there,
burst the clouds and] canse rain to fall it,
The theory seems simple enough and
based on sound scientific principles; but
will it work? lThat the United States
government expects to ascertain through
Professor Myers' experiments., A fine
copper wire will be attach to the bal-
loonhwhen it ascends, and through this
the electric current w\ll pa.ns. To save
expense it is expected. that the experi-
mental balloons will be constructed of
silk pulp from worn out bank notes.
We are allaware of the storythat a
British nobleman runs a line of cabs its
London, but not everybody knows that
numbers of the English ,iri.t, .-*'. cy run
beer and drinking saloons. For instance.
the Earl of Derby him-elf own. seventy-'
two drinking saloons, and pockets the
rents of them with the greatest regular-
ity. What is worse, a lord bishop of the
Church of England is also the owner ot
two drinking saloons, and likewise
pockets his rent from them regularly,
without the least disturbance to his con-
science. Well, that is no worse than the
case of some highly respected gentlemen
;in. \.ierica._ There have been '.valthy
law and order citizens in this republic
who made th- l,-i.i.:-st noiseabout tem-
-perance all the while that they sent
money to convert the h.e:th.-n out of the
liberal beer saloon rents they received,
from property they owned ...

TOM RYDER'S CHILD.
Mr. Marsh, when he was sitting In the
village store with the heels of his well
tallowed boots carefully poised on the
edge of the corrugated cylinder stove,
was a far larger man than when he was
at home. Perhaps it was for that reason
that he spent so much time in the store.
Aman likes to feel large and to hawk
and expectorate in an indop..:nt man-
When under the protection of his own
roof this gentleman was very much in
the shadow of his wife. He never
hawked and he never expectorated there.
He shrank up into the smallest possible
compass and seemed to deprecate the
fact that he was alive at all. If he could
have come in and gone out at the key-
hole he would have felt an unutterable
As it was, he was in constant fear lest
he should forget to wipe his feet, or lest
he should leave a door unlatched. He
often told himself "he'd rather be darned
any day than to forgit to wipe his feet
twice," first on the husik mat in the sink
room and next on the braided mat at
the kitchen door. When Mr. Marsh said
"he'd rather be darned," he meant that
he preferred being consigned to hades.
He often thought it would be a kind of
relief to be in that place "and done with
it." But he always was very meek in-
deed when he had indulged in such
Mrs. Marsh was a large, dark, mus-
tached woman, who was believed by
some to be a good nurse. She certainly
had the merit of subduing her charges
into absolute quiescence. She boasted
that folks that "she took care on knew
their places mighty quick; 'n' their
places was to jest lay still 'n' let the Lord
do as he pleased."
She was fond of mentioning the Lord
at the most unexpected and irritating
times. She had referred to him on so
many occasions in regard to her hus-
band's bringing in "medder mud" and
other kinds of soil on the soles of his
boots that Mr. Marsh was continually
harassed by a fear lest he might become
prejudiced and acquire a habit of think-
ing disrespectfully of the Lord. If he
did acquire such a habit, he hoped fer-
vently and in plain terms that it might
be laid to D'rindy's charge rather than
to his. Dorinda was his .wife's name;
and it was the name given to each of
five consecutive daughters who had been
born to Mr. and Mrs. Marsh and who
had all died when children.
There were residents in the village
who always'took friends who came from
a distance to the graveyard to see the
"row of Dtrindies, as this, series of
mounds was usually termed. "
These continual bereavements were
very hard to bear during ,their occur-
rence, but after some years had passed
and the wounds were scarred Mrs.
Marsh was conscious of a certain dis-
tinction coming from the fact that she
was, in a certain sense, owner of that
row -in the cemetery. She had a pride
in keeping the small graves and their
headstonesThi clie very "beth condition;
or rather she made Mr. Marsh keep them
.so .. .
When I have seen that woman strid-
ing toward the hill slope where the
Graveyard was, I have wondered if she
-did not feel a satisfaction that there
were five mounds instead of four;, five
\ made a much more impressive row. If
one of those babies had grown -it would
Sdoubtless have brought t in a great deal
iof mud in the spring, snow n the win-
"ter, and road dust in the summer. It
would have "littered things up jest aw-
ful," to use a favorite expression of Mrs.
Marsh. Was it possible that there
prywere compensations? It is a distinction,
too, to have had a "dretful sight' of
sickness in your family;" to have "fieotes
putWup" for the sufferer and the suffer
Do you know whas it means to haye a
note put up? It is to arrange that the
minister shall find, apparently is the
hymn book, a scrap of paper asking the
prayers of the congregation for a family
in affliction. The name of the person is
' "*often given, and then there is a rustling'

tone to one of more feeling, and petitions

she. be called upon to give up that be-

her head to his great and glorious will,
-and to blesshim, even though hpslay.
S There is a great sameness about the
words used in response to this askig foi
prayers, but who shall say that those
phrases do not sometimes touch healing-,
ly a sore heart?

But his wife had made him go. She
had even found time as usual to fasten
his collar and button on the rusty black.
And he had always heard those pray-
ers in answer to the note he had put up.

im from morning to night, and occar,
sionally reminded him of what a mother
suffered in the losa of a child. She said
she s'pwed a father had some feelings,
but how could a father know a mother's
Evidently there was no answer to this
question. Certainly Mr. Marsh attempt-
ed to give none.
Mrs. Marsh talked a great deal to her
husband and to the neighbors generally
about the fact that all her children had
been born without any constitutions.
She didn't know why it was, for all her
folks were made of iron. She often in-
quired how it was that a child with no
constitution at all could be expected to
live. She told Reuben it was too -much
to ask. She gave every one to under-
stand that Reuben seemed to believe
their children ought to live, but she knew
As the years went by she made Mr.
Marsh keep those little graves, and their
headstones, and their lettering of "Dor-
inda, daughter of Reuben and Dorinda
Marsh," more and more triggedd up."
When Mr. Marsh was not at home nor
at the store it was well known t-iat he
must be "to the c.metr'y triggin' up
It was one mild day in winter that
Mr. Marsh put on his overcoat and his
rubber boots. He said he was going
down to the store and guessed he should
jtust stop in at the graveyard before he
came home. The hill sloped to the
south there, and it was warm and sunny,
almost like a spring day.
The man had it in his mind that there
was just a chance that some snowdrops
might be blossomed, or at least budded.
But if he should find a bloom hlie was
not so crazy, he told himself, as to take
it to his wife, who would only consider
it as some kind of "litter." He should
stop at the store, as he said, and he
should probably see Tom Ryder's for-
lorn little girl shivering about, and he
should give the flower to her. Then her
small, pinched face would suddenly
lighten, and she would smile in that ra-
diant way that always went like a knife
to Reuben Marsh's heart. He wondered
if any of those Dorindies, if any had
lived, would have had such a face and
such a smile as that. If they "took
after" their mother they surely would
Once after Mr. Marsh had seen this
transformation take place in the face of
Tom Ryder's daughter when she had re-
ceived a kindness he had ventured to
speak about her to his wife, with a wild
hope in the bottom of his heart that they
might adopt Ryder's child, for Ryder
was only a drunken wretch whose wife
had long since died of a broken heart
and too much work.
Mrs. Marsh made it very plain indeed
i0 her husband that she had no opinion
whatever of that nasty Belle Ryder.
Mr. Marsh had fallen into his ordinary
tome mood of dull, cowed silence. He
?at with his slippered feet on their wood-
an cricket, and hung his head, pulling
Uis beard slowly and wondering what he
was living for.
Hs 3::.n.i- -d men never hated their
lviyes .. _fe suppose. ,there was no man
,u the world whose wife was such a good
sook, who kept her husband's clothes so
well mended and so clean as D'rindy
itid, but he said plainly to himself that
"he'd rusher be flogged than to be where
Often, as he sat there pulling his
beard and watching D'rindy as she made
everything painfully clean, he told him-
self that he must have been' even more
of a fool than most young men to have
fallen in love with a girl who could turn
out to be such a woman as that. He
also asked of his ownrsoul how it would
be. with him if it were possible for a
man to hate his wife.
When he walked" slowly through the
mud of the main street he was conscious
that there was more than the ordinary
bitterness in his heart. ,.He stamped
down his heavy feet with an air of bra-
vad6 when he reached the store. He
took in a large quantity of mud, and he
talked so 1oud and spat so emphatically
that the storekeeper winked at the man
next to him, and said in a whisper that
/ D'rindy must have been carrying' an un-
common high hand with Reuben that
But for all this extra swagger Mr.
Marsh was aware that he was greatly
depressed, It did not seem to exhilarate
him to have Ms heels on, the stove. He
did not understand himself today, and
he left the store much earlier than was
his custom. One of the men actually
got up from his brokenbacked chair and
went to the window to watch the re-
"*Soniethim g ur other's the matter of
Reub Mar.-h," he said pityingly.-I
never seen him miss his aim a-spittin' be-.
fore, 'u' he missed it every time today."
The storekeeper was chopping off a
piece of tobacco. He nodded hris head.
He said he Was sorry, for Reub. He
Si'posed he was goin' up to them graves
now. H& hoped it wasn't wicked, buthe
did think wouldd be jest as well if there
was a sixth grave in that row and
D'rindy wVas laying in it. For his part
he'd like to help trig up D'rindly Marsh's
grave, whether 'twas wicked or not.
Then they fell to talking about Tom
"Ryder. ald of th6 fact that he had been
gone a week, bAdy knew where," on a
worse s-pree tkw) ever.
"I guess they'llhave to take the little
one totheipoorhouse thi_- time, and no
mistake. Somebody ought to.speak-toi
the svlectmen, 'n' have her seen to."
M r. Marsh walked on m-echanically rF,
the road. le1 did not know vy9" it wal
that he c,:,uld not throw oil his wlie's Iu-
flut-nce when,- he had left he-r, as he was
usually a!,..- to do.
Some str-'mely desperate mood was
upon him. H-e put his hand to hishead,
and stiid if he didn't know better he
should : alti.-t think he hliad been drink-
- -'iu re.
Just bef.,re hie reached the cemetery
he passed, by the house where the Ryders
lived, an old, place Nith low eaves that
looked as if they would always drip
with nnheallthy moistuile. Some of the
window panes were -tafted with rags,and
a cat walke,1 with oaitentation3 misery
among the puddles near the front door.
Mr. Marsh wished hlie had brought
some baker's cookies from the store, but

i ing by the row of graves and looking
.sharply down at the sodden turf for the
snowdrops. There were the green leaves
He knelt and pushed aside the browIn
wet grass. His heavy face took on t
pathetic look of eagerness. No, it was
too early; the sun had not been warm
I enough. There were no blossoms-not
"It's too bad-too bad!" he muttered.
'How she would er liked 'em!"
He stood up. He brushed a mist from
his eyes that made the headstones look
as if they were not straight.
Something that felt cold and wet, like
ice, touched the hand that hung down
by his side. But he did not notice the
touch until it was repeated, this time ac-
companied by a whine. Mr. Marsh
aroused himself and patted the lean, in-
aippy looking cur that stood beside him
"Hullo, Jack," he said, "where's your
it tle-mi stress?"
Jack wagged his tail and made as if
le would trot back home, but as Mr.
Marsh did not follow him he returned
and licked his hand again. He went
through these movements so many times
that the man at last walked after him,
the dog continually looking behind, un-
til he had led his friend to the back door
of the Ryder house. This door stood
Mr. Marsh had not heard that Tom
Ryder was "on a spree," and he expected
every moment to be greeted by the own-
er of this place, whom he despised and
whom he always wanted to kick every
time he saw him.
Instead of a masculine voice, however,
a piping, feeble treble sounded from one
of the front rooms.
"Oh, Jack, don't you leave me tool
Don't you go 'n' leave me too!"
Reuben Marsh stood suddenly still
from sheer weakness. His great, tender
heart seemed to choke him. He heard
the dog wining joyfully and, scuttling
about the room he had entered. He
Breathed a long breath and pushed the
door further open, apparently taking but
one stride from the door to a "trundle
bed" which was in a corner. On the bed
was a child who stared wildly for an in-
stant at this intruder, then a flush 'of
joy overspread her face. She put out
two bony arms to the man bending over
ler. She laughed.
"I've jest be'n pra3in' for a friend,"'
she cried feebly. "I kep' a-prayin' so,
hard that God had to hear finally."
Mr. Marsh gathered the child to his
breast. His heart glowed. His eyes
sparkled as he felt the frail form leaning
confidingly against him.
He took a frayed blanket from the bed
and wrapped her up until she was like a
mummy. He was smiling all the while
he was doing this.
"Where's your father?"
"I d' know. He's been gone ever so
many days, I guess."
"Ain't you hungry?"
"I was hungry after I et up all there
was, some bread 'n' sausage. Then I got
faint; then I was so awful kind of sick."
The child leaned her head on the man's
shoulder and shut her eyes. Heheldher
"I'll take ye right homnie," he said..
He stepped out into the mild, damp
air. He held his head very high, and
his eyes sparkled more than ever. He
walked down and into the village street
as if he had been a soldier coming from
a victory. He nodded at the few ac-
.him wonderingly, but he would not stop
to spealk to any one. -.
The storekeeper saw him, and said to
a customer that there was Reub Marsh
with Ryder's little. girl, 'n' he guessed
Reub 'd ketch it when he got home.
Mr. Marsh still held his head up when
he entered hi own kitchen, tracking in a
good deal of mud as he did so, for he did
not pause at the huskmat, nor yet at the
rug by the kitchen door.
"Bring me a cup of milk with a drop
of hot water in it," he said, sitting down
in the large rocker by the stove.
Jack had entered also, an, .e atso had
brought in mud. He sat yamlyon his
dirty haunches on the, shiny' oilcloth by
the chair which held Mr. Marsh and hi~s
mistress. ; "
Mrs. Marsh stood a moment in bewild-
erment; then she brought the milk.
Her face s,:,ftene.. snewhat as she
looked at the pinched "features on her
- "She is starving," said Mr. Marsh,
"We'll, give her a good meal, 'n' then
youc'n take her right back," remarked
Mrs. ar.-h, with her. usual decision.
She added that Reubt-_n -could go right
over to Mr. Wallis, who was one of the
selectmen. and have the child taken to
the poorhouse that very night.
In ten minutes the girl was sound
asleep. Mr. Marsh laid her on the lounge
and covered heri ti a shawl. He fed
Jack, who ate very hastily and with the
utmost greediness and then curled up on
the floor by the couch f
Reuben Marsh rose from his bending
position over the lounge. He looked his
wife squarely in the face, a thing lie
had not done for years.
ihe gazed back at him with some-
thing like constrntion slowly growing
in her mind.
"I'm goin' to d1o one of two things,
D'rindy," he said very slowly, "and it's
for you to say which it'll be. I'm goin'
to keep Tom Ryder's child if he donit
take her away from me, 'n' I guess he
won't. I'm going' to keep her here if
you're willing ; it you ain't, williu' I sh'll
go where I can keep her. 'N' she's going'
to be treated well too. Now which shall
it be, D'rindy?"
AMr. Marsh, with that delicious lovefor
the child in his heart, looked very big,

People Who Eat Alone.
in all thoroughly civilized countries
the members of a family and their guests
partake of meals while collected around
a central board, but this is not so with
the majority or even a fraction of the
semi-civilized and barbarous nations.
The Mardivian islanders dine alone, re-
tiring to the most secret parts of the!r
huts for the purpose of eating their food.
This custom probably arose among them
in an early period of their history, for
fear, perhaps, that another with equally
as sharp an appetite and more bodily
strength would deprive the feaster of
his meal.-St. Louis Republic.
It Costs You Nothing!
It is with pleasure we announce that
we have made arrangements with that
popular illustrated magazine, the Amer-
ican Farmer, published at Cleveland, 0.,
and read by farmers in all parts of this
country and Canada, by which that great
publication will be mailed direct, free, to
the address of any of our subscribers
who will pay up all arrearages on sub-
scriptions and one year in advance from
date, and to any new subscribers who
will phy one year in advance. This is a
grand opportunity to obtain a first-class
farm journal free. The American Farmer
is a large 16-page journal, of national
circulation, which ranks among the lead-
ing agricultural papers. Its highest pur-
pose is the elevation and ennobling of
agriculture through the higher and
broader education of men and women
engaged in its pursuits. The regular sub-
scription price of the American Farmer
is $1 per year. It costs you nothing.
From any one number ideas can be ob-
tained that will be worth thrice the sub-
scription price to you or members of your
household, yet you get it free. Call and
see sample copy.
