Ihe Ilcitit h Author of "Home, Swcitt
H't is oomi:i hoin. AfUr thirty yeara in a
foreign gravis his bonei aro traveling back to
liiHiiaiive land to rest forever. Homeless in
life, death ha restored to him uot only the
love and appieciatioa for which ln pined, but
the ideal tetideinusaof which be dreamed. Tbo
people whom he fancied nbgiect'.-d him, and
for whose sympathy and praise ho hungered
with a child's hoartsiclmcss, aro waiting with
full hearts to honor his dust The fairest epot
in the garden of the dead lias I en chosen for
his monument, which will be a shrine before
which all will bow iu homage.
This tardy kindness is given bii memory,
not for the result of his life-work, which waa
C'.Kd bnt for one little eong. which flowed, no
doubt, from his heart when it wan over full of
i:id:ies Something of the eternal buugor of
hia spirit for love and companionship passed
into the words, aud made Ilomo, Sweet Home
deathless. Something, too, of tho sombre
melauehnly which brooded within his soul,
frinco whoever bears its plaintive music feels
the heait swell aud tho eyes grow misty.
The angnih of the singer
Hakes the sweetness of the strain."
Of all America a songs it id the only one that
cannot die, f ince its sentiment will bo as dear
to generations unborn as to ua. As long as
the human heart needs lovo and kindness,
that long will tho notes of uIIome,Sweet Home"
have power to thrill it.
Some influence we can not trace or under
stand followed John Howard Payne and kept
bis life from beiug what is called successful.
Yet surely be who has left one imperishable
line to Uio world which contains an ennobling
Hcntimjnt has not failed. AU tho logic of the
schools afla the law's decrees have not done so
much to foster tho love of home as has this
little song. Its author wove it from the woof
of the ideal, ninco home to him was never a
realiry. It was born of tho union of his imag
ination with his longing for tho genial atmos
phere, the enchanted air of his dreams.
Something, perhaps his destiny, stood ever
lietween him and the realization of bis bones.
He was ambitious, industrijus, and clover,
yet he could not wring from a heedless public
either appreciation or financial reward. After
years ol struggle, and disappointment, loneli
ness and close acquaintance with hardships
aud poverty, bis character took on a soft and
delicate melancholy which never left him.
itis soul was auo a star aud dwelt apart."
He wassixtv vears old when ha rlii-.I- nl n
saddened from life's history that he appeared
much older. It was in tho year 1S25 or not
long before, while in London, that he wrote the
ong that earned him immortality. It waa
iu the drama entitled "Clarl, the Maid of
Milan " "which Charles Kemble. of Covent
Garden theatre, London, lwught along with
uther manuscript, for thirty pounds. Mrs.
Tree, a sieter of Ellen Tree, sang the song upon
its first production. It was popular immedi
ately. A hundred thousand copies were sold
in one year, but not ono cent was paid to the
luthor by the fortiyiatti publishers. It lias
been distributed by millions of copies since
men, ana uie greatest lingers nave ueiigntea
aivrtads of hearers with its simple and touch
ing music and sentiment. While tho world
atig it tcelin'-ly in its humblo as well as ele
gant homes, ou the street, in its churches,
everywhere, the bomelc-33 author was often in
need of bread.
It is stated on bis tnouument iu Tunis that
Pavne was lorn in Boston, which is incorrect.
He was a native of New York citv. His father
removed to Boston whilo Howard was verv
young, aud opened a boarding school. Tho
bright, ambitions boy there beau his literary

bore evidence of the promise that was in bim.
lie was a good elocutionist ana passionately
fond of things theatrical. -
hen thirteen he was placed in a counting
house iu New York, a situation most distaste
ful lo bim, tho tediousuess of which he relieved
by acting as the editor ofThe Thespian Mirror.
Tue excellence of the dramatic criticisms con
tained in this journal made him Home influen
tial acquaintances, among them a Mr. Soamau
who sent bim to Schenectady college to be edu
cated. While there be edited Pat-time, a
weekly magazine, the first number of which
appeared iu 1S07. In 18US he returned to Bos
ton to prepare for the stage, and continued lit
erary labor there as editor of The Mirror. His
first appearance on the stage wa3 made in New
York in February, lNUl, and was a success. It
was followed by engagements in New England,
the south aud west, initio he went to Eng
land, and on June 4th of that year appeared in
Drury Lane theatre, London. He continued
an actor several year?, after which be devoted
himself to literature. His editorship, in Lon
don, of a theatrical journal called The
Opera Olaas did not last long. By the
year lSi he - bad written several
dramas, the last being "Clari."
While iu Europe bis literary work waa car
ried on sometimes in London and sometimes in
Paris, but its financial rewardswere preca
rious, and the lean aud hungry wolf was oftou
in Bight; While in Paris he made the acquaint
ance of Washington Irving, who extended a
fraternal arm to the unfortunate poet Ho
returned to America in 1831. aud made his
home in New York with a younger brother.
His literary schemes proved unprofitable. For
ome time Payne aeted as the agent of the
Cherokee chief .John Boss, both iu tho country
of his tribe and in Washington. His chival
rous kindness to. tho Indians led to his arrest
by a party of state militia of Georgia, and
temporary imprisonment. President Tyler ap
pointed him consul at Tunis, in l$4l. Ifo waa
recalled during the administration of Polk.
President Fillmore reappointed bim, and be
held the position of consul to Tunis at the
time of his death. . - -

what "a dosolate sensoof isolation comes over

Pli3Mical Characteristics of Old Age.
The whole of life may be divided into three
periods that of growth, maturity and decay.
Tho first is characterized by changes in sub
stances, size, form, powers and susceptibilities-
The second is characterized by fixedness.
Food no longer goes to growth, but simply
makes good what the system wastes in its
working. It is the period of labor, enterprise
and intellectual mastership oyer nature.
The third say from sixty onward is tho
opposite of the first, and would be of the sec
ond, were we not able to carry along our ac
cumulated treasures of experience, knowledge,
habits, and mnch of the' momentum gained hi
our best years. At the best, however, it is ono
of increasing decay.
Two facts, "atrophy" wasting from lack of
nourishment aud "degeneration" change of
muscular fibre into fat or lime explain this
decay in the main. The food may be enough,
but the powAr to get rid of the .waste of the
system, and to replace it with good nerve,
muscle, membranes, heat and strength is
lessened. Hence there is universal shrinkage,
which is not confined to the muscles, but ex
tends to the brain, spinal cord, nerve trunks,
lungs, liver, and in a still greater degree, to
the spleen and lymphatic glands.
The heart aud kidneys by a wise provision
of nature retain their normal size, the first
even generally becoming larger. The vacuum
around the shrivelled brain . and lungs
is. filled with a watery fluid from the
blood. The lungs are drawu toward the back
bone, and the chest proportionately falls in.
Their surface is quite uneven. Their power
to throw off carbonic acid yearly decreases, be
coming from one-fourtli to one-half less. This
is largely due to tho weaker and shallower
The veins lose much of their elasticity, and
their walls especially in the lower half of
the body increase in'size aud thickness. Tho
blood is less iu quantity, more fluid and coag
ulates more readily. I'he pulse is slow, hard
and wiry. The heart-leat is more irregular.
The above are some of the characteristics of
normal old age.
A Child's Uebake.
Troy Times. '
The four-year-old daughter of a well-known
diviue of this city js disposed to be dictatorial
in a cunning way with bcr older brothers and
sisters. While she was acting the wee tyrant
over her brother, tho other day, her father de
cided to rebuke her for the first time, and elo
quently set forth to her the kindness of her
brother, and her duty to be kind in return.
When the exhortation had ended, the little au
ditor, with tearful eyes and frame trembling
with emotion, strode up to her venerable sire,
and striking an attitude; said, between her
sobs, "Y-you use too m-many words." The
fatherainly endeavored to suppress bis laugh
ter as he went to his study and proceeded to
cut down his next Sunday's sermon.
Old Fox Ilnnters Sfistaltes.
John Burroughs in The Century.
Nature will not be cornered, yet , she does
many things in a corner and surreptitiously.
She is all things to all men; she has whole
truths, half truths, and quarter truths, if not
still smaller fractions. Tha careful observer
finds this out sooner or later. Old fox hunters
will tell von, on the evidence of their own eyes.
that there is a black fox and a silver gray fox,
two species : b:it there are not; the black fox is
black when coming toward you, or running
from you, aud silver gray at point blank view,
when the eye penetrates the fur; each separate
hair is gray the first half and black the last
This is a sample of nature's half truths.

A Taunton woman relates that she recently sat
beside another woman, a stranger to her, in an
Old Colony car. ' As the train passed Quincy
the stranger pointed to the crowded burial
place so near the track, - and remarked, in
a complacent tone:- "I've got three of the best
husbands lyin' there that ever a woman had."

f I'silrrcroanil Telegraph Wire
Cor. Philadalphia Telegraph.
I-ondon is tolerably freo from the dangei
and annoyance of overhead wires, and all the
dismal predictions of the pessimist opponent!
to tho underground system have been agree
ably falsified by actual experience. The wirei
are in noliody's way, the city Ih freed from i
frightful disfigurement, aud re pairs ran Le ef.
foe ted much more cheaply, ex peditiouidy am
safely. To bavo heard tho howl raised bar
when first tho underground system was called
for it would appear that the companies ex
pected to have to dig a tweuty-foot-deup trench
in the middle of tho streets and throw iu thcii
wires to take their chance among the gas, ate,
and sewer pipes. Nothing of the kind, how
ever, is necessary. Ijcadun pipes, varying
from six inches to fifteen inches iu diam
eter, according to the number of wires re
quired, are placed about twelve or eighteen
inches deep iu the sidewalks, close to tho curb.
Tho wires, coated with gutta percha or other
non-conducting substance, aro placed within,
and all urban messages are flashed aloug close
to the toes of pedestrians. About every hun
dred yards is a small connecting trap, generally
concealed by a flagstone, and by ibis mean
access can bo bad to the wirist at any time.
When first the underground system iu
adontod in Loudon' curious crowJs of idler
used to gather around tho workmen engaged io
repairing the wires, and thus impede the traf
fic, so au arrangement to obviate this incon
venience was duviitcd. Little Htiare tents of
brown canvass about seven feet are used.
They cover about four feet square, and ai
placed over the trap when the wires are being
withdrawn for repairs. They cause scarcely
any obstruction, and two-thirds of tho persoui
passing by are unaware of what is going ot
within. Auy breakage of a wire oi
leakago can easily be located lctweoii two
of .the a i -cobs traps, and any ordinary repair
can be done in au hour or even lens. Tbers
are a few telephone wires carried over the
hous. tons, but 1 understand these also art
soon to Le taken underground, and Ixiudouem
would no moro think of reverting to the old
system than of permitting gas aud water com
panies to carry their pipes overhead. So suc
cessful has the underground arrangement
proved in Ixindon and other large cities, that it
has been seriously proposed to bury all tha
telegraph wires in the kingdom. There is no
particular danger at ten :ing overhead lines
away from tho cities, as they aro almost en
tirely carried along tbo railroads; but tele
graph engineers aro beginning to lean to the
opinion that the greater economy in the maiu
tonanee of underground telegraphs would ac
tually make tho synttni cheaper in the long
run, "while in case of war it would render ii

ONE LITTLE GOLD DOLLAE.
A Rotable Charity Founded I'pon a
Little Kirk i.irl'M 41 ft.
Lonise Stockton in The Continent
Tho Philadelphia House for Incurables waa
founded on a legacy of one liltlo gold dollar.
There was i i W'est Philadelphia a young girl
who had been confined to her bed from early
childhood, and she, often thinking of those
who suffered as much but were uot cared for
as she was, longed to make them as
comfortable. She used to talk to her
mother about a homo for incurables, and one
day when a gold dollar vas given her she said
it could be put away as tho foundation for a
fund for such a homo. It was a light enough
fancy en her part, but it bo 'a mo an inspira
tion. After tha girl died tbo money was re
membered, and ber mother and bor friends de
termined to see her wish carried out It wai
easy enough to arouso interest, as everv one
knew the need of such an institution. In the
hospitals established for curative purpose!
there was no room for patients pro
nounced beyond help, and even at
the almshouse the transient pauper was
preferred to the permanent patient Fvery
ens know of helpless sick who were suffering
in poverty, or supported by hard exortion oi
gru liring" charity. There was need enough
that the little gold dollar should b.j put to use.
The women who were interested went to work
determined to succeed. They held fairs and
solicited subscriptions. Those of them wha
could, gave money, and all worked; and in
1877 they had raised enough Jmoney to author
ize them in opening a homo out ou tho Isarby
At the end of tho year they had sixteen
patients and a lengthening list of applicants.
There were people in all stages of diseases,
and with every shape of it, asking for admis
sion, but the managors bad not only to limit
the number admitted, but they bad to exclude
all diseases not easily managed in their build
ing. A hospital for such uses demands pecu
liar accommodations and appliances, aid the
next step was to build one. So then, this was
accomplished. Men gave n;oney to buy
ground and women endowed lieds, aud the
managers took care that as their mortar hard
ened no debt hardene.l wi:h it. 1 bey bad uot
money enough to build s large a house as they
needed, but tho plans provided for extensions,
and there is ground enough. Tho bouse really
looks like a home, and a very beautiful one It
is well arranged, and no detail of comfort or
convenience has been neglected, and the result
would have delighted and astonished the ownei
of tho little gold dollar.

One of the grand jurors for the superior

the day that fire waa started to this it has never

Wattersou ou the Press.
As a publi-2 force the press is a curse instead
of a blessing. It is a vehicle, not merely of
disjointed thought but of mean and paltry
thoughts; sensational and unreliable in its
news; coarsa, feeble, and splenetic in its wit;
too often mercenary and opiaiouleas, and gen
erally underbred iu tone.
