THE CABIN IN THE CLEAJHNO.
BenL a Parket
Backward gazing through the iliKlowt,
As U10 evening fades away,
I ixirecivu the InUe footpriu'u
Where the morning auulight lay
Warm and mellow, ou the pathway
Leading to the open door
Of tlio cabin in the clearing.
Whore my aoul rocluiut unco more
O! that cabin in the clearing.
Where my Mary came a LriJe,
Where our children grew to love us,
Where oar little Robbie died.
Still in memory blooms the red bad
By the doorway, and the breez
Tingles wrth the ripieewood's odor
And the catbird's melodies.
And I iuiud the floor of puncheons
Rudely laid on Joist and MilL
And tho lire-place tthapod and beaten
From the red clay on the hill;
With the chimnoy standing ontoido,
IjUo a blind man asking alma,
Wrought of fcticktt ana clay and fashioned
By tho builder's ready palms.
Half way up the flue wido-throatod.
Does the hickory croastree rent,
Whence depend the pot aud kettle,
Whoro tho great fire blazes beat
O! I smell the savory venison,
Hear tho hominy simmer low.
As my Mary stirs the embers
That were ashes long ago.
Onco again I hurry homeward,
When tho day of toil is o'er,
And my heart leaps up in gladness,
For in this wide-open door
Mary, in her homenpun habit.
With her hand aUjvo her eyes,
Gazes all around tho clearing
Till my coming form she spies.
Tis for her I am a hunter.
And the tleet doer's sudden bound
Tells how swift and sure my ami is,
Ere his lifo-tido dyes the ground;
'Tis for her I am an angler,
And the spotted beauties woo
From their paradise of waters
Ere the sua has dried tho dew.
And tlie wild rose and the bluebell
That I pluck with gentle caro,
Are for her who rules tho cabin
Mary, of tho raven hair;
'Tis for her I vmite tho forest
Day by day with myriad blows ;
'Tis for her the coruatalk tassols,
Aud the golden pumpkin grows.
Often, winding through tho woodlands.
Neighbors como with song and shout,
Eager for a day of pleasure
Whero tho latch-key hangeth out,
Aud with ready hands assist us
At our labors, while the zest
Of our conversation heightens,
Till the sun goes down tho wost
Aye, and once again I see them,
On a sad, sweet summer day,
When the robin on the maple
Soem9 to sing his soul away:
lnd tho clearing swims around ma
Iu a tangled dream of woo,
Vnd my weeping Mary whispers,
Tell mo why he had to gor"
Why ho had to go!" O ITeavou!
"Did God want our little boy !"
Tis tho old unanswered question
Cankering in the heart of joy,
Vnd HiiUluing many a pleasure.
As I seo those friends of old,
Hiding tenderly our darling.
In the forest's virgin mold.
Now. that cabin in the clearing
Is but dust, blown here and there,
Where the palpitating engines
Breathe their darkness on tho air;
Whero my forests towered in beauty.
Now a smoking village stands,
And the rows of factories cluster
Grimly on my fertile lands.
Scarcely room enough is left me
1'or this double, clustering rose
Where the baby and its mother
Side by side in earth renose:
Soon the last fond trace will vanish - -
Which uroclaims that thev hare Keen?
But 110 matter heaven's gateway

let with Mary oft I linger,
Where the well-sweep slanteth low
Planning over all our labors,
When to plant and what to sow.
How to ride to .Sunday meeting
Fixing on a proper dav
For the rolling and the quilting,
Ana me young roiks' evening play.
Eighty, and a memory only!"
Is that what you speak of met

And its pictures fair to seo;
While the fairest and tho sweetest

Chicago's Foundling' Home.
Dr Georgo E. bhipman, the founder of the
Foundlings' home, in an 1 interview with a re
porter stated that from 7 to 90 per cent of
foundlings fed on the bottle die. As the result
of twelve years of experience, he pronounced
it impossible to rear foundlings by hand. The
home of which he is the head now receives
only as many children as wet-nurses can be
provided for, and since that plan has been
adopted only Sper cent, of the babies have
died. There are now in the home fifty-six
babies, Taring m age from4 clays to 12 months.
et nurses are obtained at a very .moderate
expense in tins way. Any nealthy woman
having a baby of her own is given a free home
for nerselt and baby, providing she will take
care 01 and nurse one baby besides her own.
The result is that there are two babies to
every wet-nurse. The nursing-rooms are
not constructed like hospital wards, but like
ordinary chambers. In each room there irp
beds for three nurses, and cradles for six
babies. No especial effort is made by Br.
Shipnian to obtain wet-nurses, but as a rule
they come along voluntarily about as fast as
the babies do that need their services. Dr.
Suipman is of opinion that tho city is bound
to provide for its own foundlings. "If the
city can afford!" he said, "to support the ex
pensive WaHhingtonian Home for the sake of a
lew drunkards, certainly it can afford to sup
port helpless, outcast, and abandoned infants.
Tho fact is" he continued, "the baby i the
only one discriminated against by the city.
There is a poor house, an insane asylum, a
home for tho friendless, for incurables, for
everybody except tho baby, that can't speak
for itself. The city must understand that
henceforth it cannot'erowd its pauper babies
upon us against our will and beyond the limits
of our capacity. "
At length it seems as if Niagara is to be res
cued from factories and other disfigurement.
It is to the credit of the Canadian government
that it has not permitted unsightly buildings
and workshops to obstruct the view of the
great falls. But, so far, this Btate has taken no
steps to Bare tho American side from the pro
fanation of flour mills, 1? stories, and sight
shows. Tho New York legislature, however,
has taken measures to clear away all disfigure
ments, and to permit this wonder of the world
to be seen in all its splendor. All Americans
should at least once in the course of their lives
pay a visit to Niagara. The Victoria falls iu
central Africa are said to bo even more stupen
dous, but they have never been seen save by
two white men. When aorial travel is perfect
ed it may be possible to visit central Africa,
but until that time comes we must be satisfied
with viewing the great waterfall of our own
"When man lies," says The "Whitehall Times
"the devil laughs." What a jolly old devil it
must be, to be sure ! Alway on the broad grin,
never glum or sorrowful; always laughl'ig ana
tlway3 hurt of having something to laugh at.
She Knew Him.
One of our brisk Now England towns boasts
a fine public library, bequeathed to it by one
of its former citizens. The library is adorned
with busts of uoted poots and authors. Some
time ago a lady from the rural districts paid a
visit to this "abode of books." After looking
about with the greatest interest, she presented
herself before the librarian and asked him
who the men were whose busts she saw.
"That," said he, "is Shakespeare; and that
one over by the door is Hawthorne; the next
is a bust of Webster, and that one iu the cor
ner is John Milton"
"What!" exclaimed the old lady, "is that
John Milton I knew John Milton," and to
the amazement of the librarian, she darted off
to the corner.
'You see. sir. I knew him Tears atro. Why.
he used to preach in Dan vers; but f guess that
bast was took when he was a vouiuzar man. I
bast was took when he was a younger ISM.

What iieneral Stone, an Ex-Pasha, Sy
Atout Affairs I11 the Land of
Goa C. P. Stone, th aotod American, who
was known as Ktone Pasha during, the Egyptian
ar, has returned to his naiive land.
Gen. Ktone was present with the kbodive dnr-
ug the bombardment of Alexandria, in tho
palace of Itamlch, where he took refuge during
tne bombardment, and remained with him
until hJa rotura to Cairo, To &o interviewer
"I was appointed chief of staff of the khe-
divo'e army and served for somo time under
Ismail Pasha, a good and brilliant soldier.
Being chief of Prince Tewfik's staff, in Arabi'a
rebellion I was placed in a very awkward and
perplexing position, as I hardly knew how to
act But of that I do not care to talk. There
are many things in regard to my position witfi
the khedive that remain to be told, but to-day
my tonguo is tied The time may come, how
ever, when I can speak with freedom."
In developing the morale of tho Egyptian
army. Gen. Htoue said he had plenty of work.
anu me question was how to do it without
coining into conflict with ntlmnt T), la
had become almost a nonentity In the matter
or instruction aud education. Kaid Oeu. Stone:
A large number of the officers eonld nnlthr
read nor write, but quite a number of the Jun
ior officers, who had come from the military
schools, re-established by Ismail Pasha were
fairly instructed. His highness, the khedive,
during several mouths made no demands on
me as to what was necessary for great im
provements ia the army, leaving me full time
to study the subject carefully. I found it
necessary to enforce education with
men an officers, and in that way the whole
army was reorganized. It was no thankful
task. Schools were established in every sec
tion of the country. With the advantages of
good pay. the men tried to make themselves as
proficient as thev could, and from
schools were chosen the most ira.lluit aiiiim-..
that the Egyptian army could well boast of.
Tho schools wore not started as a charity, but
expressly as the right of a soldier bearing arms
for tho khedive to have his son educated. Un
fortunately for Egypt, which was thus intro
ducing instruction to the lower classes thn
economies introduoed by the European admin
istration of 1878-7U economized by the destruc
tion of these schools."
The Governmeat's Profit oei the Coin
age of Mil ver and Xlckels.
Somo curious facts relating to unredeemed
obligations of tho government have been col
lated by Tho Now York Sun, which show a con
siderable source of profit to tho United States
government Tho amount of paper money and
coiu which is never presented for redemption
comprises a largo sum. Muoh of this is de
stroyed by firo. A large quantity of the coin
is melted to make sterling silverware. Consid
erable amounts of both papor money and coin
are expected never to return. For long ago a
Uuitod States bond,;issuod about 1819, was pre
sented at the sub-treasury in this city. The
interest on it had ceased over fifty years. It
had come back from Europe through Baring
lirotliors. The outstanding princiDal of the
public debt of tho United States last vear wan
nearly two billions of dollars, chiefly repre-
Bcntea by bonds and treasury notes.
It would bo. of course, impossible to mv hn-ar
mucu 01 ii i in wm uwer ue presented tor re
demption, but some idea may be formed from
the fact that $57,o0o of it was issued so long

treasury notes issued prior to 1W6. Some of

will not, ir all probability, ever be presented
for .redemption. One thousand one hundred
and four dollars of the Mexican indemnity of
1840 has never been claimed. The last of the
fractional currency was issued under the act
of Juneo, 1.SH4, yet, although nearly twenty
years nave empaeu, ii,irn,vtl nas not been

held as a'curiosity. Some of it is still used by
banks and merchants for transmitting small
sums by maiL Several New York banks hare
considerable sums of new fractional currency,
which they distribute for the accommodation
of their customers.
As to the coin, the government derives a con
siderable profit from it The silver in one
thousand silver dollars costs, on an average,
avout $803.75. The coinage of a silver dollar
costs about y cents. The total cost of one
thousand silver dollars to the government is
thorefore 8 31 o. 25. Since the organization of
the mint, 1703, 127,190,018 silver dollars have
been coined, on which the government has re
ceived a profit of over twenty-three millions of
In the same period $123,758,510 was coined
into half dollars. At the same rate of cost for
coinage the government profited $19,395,769
ou these. The total coinage of the government
since 1793 is $317,7Gt;,7i. Estimating the
profit on the halves, quarters and subsidiary
coins at the same rate as on the dollars, the
total profit received by the government on its
silver coinage has been about sixty-four mil
lions of dollars.
In the coinage of the five cent nickels the
government reserved to itself the ilberal profit

ernment last year the handsome revenue of

margin between tho intrinsic value of the five
cent nickel and its face value led to extreme
counterfeiting. Several years ago an assay
was made of some counterfeit nickels, and it
was discovered that the conn terf overs had put
into their coins more valuable metal than the
government uses in making the genuine coins.

The Dismal swamp in Virginia is much re

twenty years ago. It now contains, says a re
cent.visitor there, some of the beet farming
land in -the state. A railroad runs across it,
and it is on its way to final extinction. The
drainage of Lake Drummond, a central body
of water lying higher than the average level of
tho swamp, wouid mko the whole area fertile.
This is a project of Gov. Benjamin F. Butler,
who once had surveys made, bnt at length

swamp is lumbering. It is penetrated by small
