A t and ot brawn with muscles of steel,
The throat of a foe to grasp :
A hand that is loving, bold and leal.
And free for friendly clasp ;
A hand to give and a hand to gain.
To steady the plow, to reap the grain,
Or to guide the ship o'er the raging main.
An honest hand for a friend to hold . .
1 with a grip both fond and true ;
A hand that is mightier far than gold,
And ever ready to do : -'
A band for the weak to grasp afcneed.
That often toils for a 9canty meed, .
And manfully works for a noble deed.
A hand that is blackened with labor's stain,
And bold In the cause of right ;
A tender hand by the couch of pain,
Its touch by love made light :
A hand for women to loving cling.
To make on the auvil the Iron ring,
To level a throne or crown a king.

A basso, too, I could send.
Who will take a low salary.
I mnst have all the solos, of course,
Must select the contralto too ;
For if she have too much force
Of voice she will never do.
And I'd aiso prefer to select
The organist one who'd owe
To me his place. He'd expect
To play as I told him to.
At the services I must sing
Music to make one dance,

I'd detest those stupid old chants.
Each To Deum must contain
- Two solos for me to do.
Or else 1 must siug my own
And the tenor solo too.
Of course, I cannot attend
The church on a rainy day.
Nor can I a substitute send

When to Europe I want to go,
The vestry, if in its senses,

And promptly defray my expenses.

MY UBANDFATHEB'S PIPb.
Tor generations my ancestors had
traded from Holland to various coun
tries. 3nt 1H pass them all, until I
come down to ny grandfather, by name
Jacob Vanderheyden. My father mar
ried his daughter, and eventually came
back to live in this his native city, for
he was a German. I recollect grand
father Vanderheyden very well, though
I was only seven years of age when he
dieL He wa3 an" immensely fat old
man. weighing nearly tbive hundred
pounds, and wearing big shirt collars
that reached up above his ears, lie be
gan life by sailing to Japan, and never,
I lielitve, made any voyages save to
that country. His ship used to lay at
Booropjes in Rotterdam. It was where
My grandfather, as you may suppose,
saved up a goodly pile of money, and
was considered by the ieople as being
well off. 1 have often been told that
previous to his last voyage, he had a re
markable dream, in which he was in
formed that great good was to come to
him when he arrived in port, but that
he must never go to sea again, for if he
did so he would be overcome with evil.
Jle accordingly made all his prepara
tions to retire from maritime life, and
sailed awav with high hope in his heart.
My mother told me that it was more
than two years ere the herring fishers
at Yhaardingcn descried his vessel re
turning to port. It must have been a
jolly-day when grandfather jumped
ashore at Boompjes. They say he was
so much altered they could scarcely
recognize him. He had grown enorm
ously fat, and was as-yellow as saffron.
Wefl, he was as good as his promise ;
he gave up sailing, and settled down
upon the land. B.t he brought a
strange story with linn, which certain
ly verified his dream. lie was in ios
session of a diamond of most suierb
beauty and great Value. 1 have heard
it said that Count Alljert Kaloskacame
from Paris, ami offered to pay forty
thousand francs for it, but my -grandfather
would not sell it, supposing he
could obtain a much greater sum.
My grandfather was a peculiar man;
he would not trust the gem in the pos
session of any bank, preferring to keep
it in his own custody. His fnends of
ten told him that he would be robbed,
for it was soon noised abroad that he
had the stone in his house. But the
old man laughed when he heard the
advice, and would not give up the prize
to any her custody. There are va
rious sTrMies told as how he cams to be
possessed of the jewel, but his own
version was that a certain native of
Japan took refuge in his ship and tied
the country. The unhappy man fell
sick unto death, and as my grandfather
attended hiin with great kindness, he
gave him the treasure before he died,
and in this way he became ioBsessor.
Some ill-natured ieople said that if the
truth was known, it would be found
that grandfather Vanderheyden had
entered into a compact with the. Evil
One to secure the wealth. Of course,
none but suierstitious old women lis
tened to stories like these, and they did
not affect grandsather's good name in
the community. I can see him now,
sitting on the bench, with his old pipe,
smoking away, apparently in a dream ;
but he was never caught napping when
smoking; he was too shrewd a man,
for you must understand the diauond
was concealed in the cavity of the knot
in his pipe. My father and mother
were the only ones to whom he impart
ed the feocret. He reasoned in this
"If, said he, th?ives break into my
house they will ransack every nook and
corner they think contains valuables,
but this old pipe might lie around any
where, and no one would take the trou
ble to carry it off. for you see it is
worth nothing at all."
And so he concealed the diamond in
his pipe, and made his mind easy. But
at length the predictions of his friends
began to prove true. Thrice was his
house broken into, and although some
thing valuable was carried away eaeh

worried, and saw, when it was too late,
that it would have been more prudent i
to have kept silent regarding his jewel, :
His mind grew uneasy, yet with strange
inconsistency, he would not sell the dia
mond, because he could not obtain the
price he asked, and he considered it
more valuable than it really was.
One day he said to my father: "1 am
distressed that there are so many bad
men in the world who desire to rob me
of my wealth. Where shall we live
and find virtuous people.?"
My father quickly replied : "My coun
trymen are honest, and never was a
robbery heard of in the town of Freis
ing; you might leave a sack of gold on
your doorstep and fiind it safe in the
"Is that so?" inquired grandfather.
"Of a truth it is," responded my
"Then I will go to your country,"
said grandfather, and he soon after
sold off his property and came hither.
But thieves are rarely at fault. They
quickly heard that a removal was con
templated, and had no trouble, I imag
ine, in tracking us to this city, though
it was never known how they did so,
for grandfather and his family were
careful not to mention their future
home. . -
Scarcely had we got settled in our
new home ere an attempt was made to
break into our house. My father urged
grandfather to sell the diamond, as we
should never be free from robbers until
he did. But the old man was stubborn
and refused. Moreover, he was getting
well on in years, and was cross and ill
natured. Months passed away, and we were
free from robbers, so that we thought
thev had departed and would trouble
us no more. Grandfather became more
amiable, and talked and smoked with
more pleasure than he hitherto had
done. We were sure at last we were
safe, when one morning, soon after my
father arose, he came running into our
bedroom saving that the house hat I
been broken into during the night.
My mother ran to my grauuiainers
bedroom, and had to break open the
door, ere- she could gain admit
tance. The poor old man laid tied upon
the bed with a ira in his mouth. His
face was livid, and the veins in his
throat were swollen purple. . The rob
ber had escaped by the window of his
"It's all over," he moaned, as soon as
he was able to speak. "It's all over.
We are ruined. All I wish to do is to
die. They carried off my pipe. Woe
is to ine."
The account he gave was this : He
was awakened by a heavy - hand on his
throat, and the next moment he found
himself in the presence of three 'masked
men, who spoke to him in German, and
demanded to know where the diamond
"In the bank," he replied.
"Thou liest," returned the one who
held the lantern to his face. "Xot a
word from thy lips," and they forth
with gagged him and commenced to
search the room.
. Failing to secure the prize, they took
his watch aud some money, and were
departing when one of the rascals spied
"Ah! that will do for me," he said;
" 'tis an ugiy old thing, but will answer
my purpose," and ignorant of the
wealth he had in his hand the
scoundrel proceed to till it with tobac
co, and lighting it, passed with his com
rades out of the window, bidding grand
fat her good night.
Bound hand and foot and unable to
move, my grandfather was forced to
witness the robbery, without being able
to regain his property.
So great was the etfect on his system
that he began to fail at once. His ap
petite, hitherto good, was now gone.
lie could not sleep, and soon was ill.
Gradually growing worse day by daj
he died within six months, repeating
with his last breath, "It's all over now;
we are all ruined!"
To say my father and mother did not
share my grandfather's grief would be
false. My father made an accurate
drawing of the pipe, and deposited it
with my mother, and then he took to
roaming over the country, and making
acquaintances with the lowest and
worot people to be found, in hopes
of finding the pine. Notwithstanding
rhe traveled through Germany and Hol
land, he returned hoEie -weary and dis
appointed, to die of a fever contracted
in his wandering.
As I grew up, the recollection of my
grandfather's pipe was indellibly
stamped on my memory. Had, I how
ever never seen it, the drawing my
father made of it was so correct that
I should have been able to identify it
Often and often ray mother told me
the story of the robbery, fearing lest I
should "forget it, making me promise
that I would keep my eyes open as I
passed through the world, in the hope
of meeting with my grandfather's pipe.
I was twenty-one years old when I
lost my mother, and came into the pos
session of a sum of money sufficient
to enable me to begin life. I connect
ed myself with a worthy man in the
grain business. He was wealthy and
had taken a fancy to me. I was with
him a year, when I became in love with
I should have mentioned that his
name was Feter Krummacher, and his
daughter was called Augusta. We
loved each other from the first; and I
went to him and frankly told our mu
tual feeliugs. He listened to me quiet
ly, and when I had finished, he said:
"The only objection I have to you is
that you have not money enough to
wed my daughter. Don't misunder
stand me ; 1 admire your character and
could give my daughter a dowry large
enough to maintain you both hand
somely, but I do not choose to do so.
When you can come to me rich enough
to keep her in the style she now lives
in, you may take her if she is willing.
That is ail I have to say. Good day."
This was a great happiness, for it
was unexpected. I went to Augusta
and told ner all.
"Have courage," she replied, "I will
wait for you until I am an old woman.
What do you propose to do?"
"I will go to some place where mon
ey can be made faster than in Bavaria,
and as soon as I can accumulate enough
I will return to you my darling, if you
will remain true to me."
"Have faith, have courage," she an
I dissolved business with Peter
Krummacher, and went to France. I
am not nna tilings as good there as in
my own land, so I went to EcglantL
W orse and worse. "
- Back I went to France, and - fortune
favored me. I was one day sitting in
a cafe at Bordeaux, when some sailors
came and called for wine, sitting down
at a small table. They were all French
men, and soon became very noisy in
their talk. All at once one of them
pulled a pipe out of his pocket, the
sight of which all but made me faint.
The fellow commenced smoking my
grandfather's pipe. I scarcely knew
how to act, I was so . afraid of betray
ing my feelings. . Could the diamond
still be concealed in that pipe? Oh,
what a tumult reigned in my heart at
that moment. ... .
, I called for wine, and fillingmy glass
sent the bottle over to the . sailors.
They looked at me and nodded as they
drank. Then one of them spoke to
the others, and they beckoned to me.

"You are a noble-hearted fellow,"
"Bah," I answered, "when one meets
good company, it is no merit to be gen

We soon came to the shop and I pur
chased the pipe and presented it. to my

"How can I thank you?" he asked.
"What a beautiful present! I shall

You will give the old pipe to me. It
will recall our first meeting. It's my

that?" he replied, gazing at me with an
expression of wonder.

grip of iron.
"Take it," he said.
The next moment it was in my pock

We found the sailors at the cafe still
drinking wine. I ordered something
to eat, and we all had a good dinner.
Then they shook me by the hand, and

A Singular Character.
There is a man about thirty-five
years old, says the Boston Transcript,
now living within fifty miles of Con
way, X. H., who was born an invalid,
and could neither walk nor talk until
nearly ten years of age, and appeared
idiotic. When some ten years of age
he began to walk on his toes, which he
has ever since done. Losing his bal
ance one day ho fell, striking his head
on the floor, and cried out "Bump
This was the first and only word he
was known to speak until nearly twelve
years of age, when he fell a second
time, repeating the first word, after
which he talked freely. The most re
markable part of his history is that as
soon a3 he began to talk he could read
nearly as well as other children or ins
age. When about eighteen years old
his father fitted no a small room for
him, putting in $23 worth of notions,
He is now in comDanv with a brother
in trade, having goods estimated worth
at least 63,000, and is doing nearly all
the work in the store.
Here comes the "Devil," with a cry,
A four line itm. or you die !

The Boston Post, in the course of an
interesting article on the Massachusetts

In the same room is a man by the
name of Darling, who is also serving
out a life sentence for highway robbery.
He has been there several years ami is
yet a young man. He is a line looking
young convict, a genius, and, notwith
standing the fart of his imprisonment
he asserts his determination that the
world shall yet acknowledge his pofcir.
He is a remarkably good artist, ami he
showed, at the request of the officer,
a piece of work on which he was en
gaged, and which he intended for a
present to a lady in Cambridge, who
had been very kind to him. . It is
an illustrated copy of Grey's Elegy,
which he is making, printing and all,
with pen and brush. 'The title-page
exquisitly illustrated, and all the illus
trations are as carefully finished as
steel engravings. The drawing is spir
ited and the whole conception good.
He has seized the spirit of the poeni
with a correctness and fidelity that
show an entire appreciation. He is
justly very proud of his work, and his
eyes shone as praise followed on exam
ination of it.
"Has it taken you long? "
"Eight mouths to do what you ee
there's but I can only . work at it about

better things, but he went wrong, and

such sad fulfillment.
A New Fuel.
From the N. Y. Sunday Herald
Applied science has recently added
to the great inventions of the day, a
process for extracting fuel from water.
The author of this process, Mr. Buck,
an English practical chemist, has real
ized the old dream of science that the
exhaustless heating iovver stored in
water may be actually employed lor
mechanical and domestic purposes.
This brilliant idea, which, it is claimed.
will enable the inventor to set fire to
the river Thames, has been successful
ly tested and developed in the large
works on the banks of the river near
Batter-sea Park, and the process in
which it originated is extremely simple
and easily put in practice.
Ordinary steam is brought through a
pipe from one of the boilers of an en
gine, and is allowed to pass through a
red hot horse-shoe shaped tube, repos
ing in a fiercely burning furnace.
While in this tube the st;am is super
heated, so that its hydrogen oxygen are
ready to dissolve their alliance, ami at-,
terwards forced into a retort filled with
incandescent coke and iron fragments.
The oxygen is left behind aud forms
with the iron scales of black rust, the
hydrogen passes freely through the red
retort, ami when certain sulphurous -va
pors have been disengaged from the
residual gas there comes lorth the
"heating gas, supereminently suited
for all calorific purposes, where heat
without light is demanded. It is ad
mirably suited for all kinds of stores
and steam boilers. The cost of the gas
at the works is only seven pence for a
thousand cubic feet, and this quantity
would boil about 50 gallons of cold
water. The cost, it is said, can be re
duced bv usincr the waste heat of the !
retort furnace to supply the steam,
which is now supplied by an independ
The distinctive feature of the Buck
process for making the new fuel gas is
in the decomposition of the superheat
ed flame by means of coke and iron,
which remain for long periods in the
ret'Wt -without requiring change. Com
binfeSi with this is also an arrangement
for carbonizing the heating gas for pur
poses of" illumination. This is done by
making it pass through oil, from which
it's carbon is received, and whence it
issues an excellent gas, equal in illumi
nating power to 10 candles for a con
sumption of five cubic feet per hour in
an Argand burner. The cost of the gas
as used for light, is a trifle less than 50
cents per thousand feet.
This invention, if fully developed,
will set at rest the uneasiness on the
coal question, and work a world wide
revolution in the cost of fuel and light
for all purposes.
What Shall We Eat I
BY AUGUSTA WORLD, M. D.
Variety. The. physical structure
of man shows that he cannot be classi
fied exclusively with either the carniv
orous or the herbivorous animals that
he should not be confined wholly to the
food upon which either class subsist.
Human beings require variety. By va
riety I do not mean that at every meal
we should seek to accommodate all the
various kinds of meats, vegetables,
pies, puddings, fruits, etc., which are
set before us. We should try to be
temperate in the variety as well as in
the quantity of what we eat. For in
stance, at breakfast take one kind of
meat, two varieties of vegetables, gra
ham or oat-meal porridge, and graham
bread. For dinner, moat, not more
than three kinds of vegetables, one of
ripe fruit, with plainly boiled, unspiced
rice, tapoica or corn-starch, and graham
bread, with sponge or other plain cake,
if desired. .
We should refrain from exhausting
the stomach bv causing it to act on too
great a variety of food. Again, we
should not eat that only which is easi
ly digesteel, as the stomach, thereby de
prived of a proper amount of work,
Quantity. For this there can be
no rule. Food is necessary to repair
loss of substance from exertion, wheth
er of part or of the whole body.
Therefore, the greater the amount of
exercise the larger the quantity needed.
It should be lessened when the diges
tive organs are weakened or diseased.
Persona sometimes say, "No matter
how much I eat. I never feel satisfied."
In such cases the digestive apparatus
is either debilitated or there is too
much inflamation to allow the gastric
and other fluids to be poured out to di
gest the great quantity taken. No
more food should be eaten than is suffi
cient to satisfy the natural desire to
meet the demands of the system.
Milk, the first food of every human
being, is often hastily put aside with
the sayings, "I don't like it. It makes
me bilious. I never have been able to
take it since I was a child " The chief
reasons for all these are, that now you
take it, either when the stomach is
crowded already with more than it can
digest, which makes yon bilious; the
system is too exhaustod to take any
thing, or something, acid is swallowed
in connection with it, both together
forming an indigestible ; mas, upon
which the digestive organs must work
hard and painfully before it is midy to
be taken up and changed into blood. i
Milk is the most nutritious ami digest
ible of all food. It yields all the essen-
tial elements necessary to form blood, j
after passing through different pro-!
cesses in the system. Again, it is mot ;
easily acted upon by the gastric jice, j
and hence quickly absorbed.
Sugars and fats are very nutritious
and valuable as articles d' human
food on account of the amount of car
bou they contain. This supplies the
waste of eleven ounces daily, which
we are constantly undergoing by oxi
dation. In this climate, however, the
deficiency is easily made up from the
sugars anil fats in other food. We
have rather to guard against the ten
dency to use them to excess. In health
we should use these two articles of diet
sparingly, its sugars, iu too large quan
tities, are apt, by decomposing, to fur
nish the. digestive organs with too
much acidity, often causing the com
mon trouble, ".sour stomach." This
acid is liable to separate again into the
gases of which it is composed, and
cause flatulency. Fas, when taken in
excess, ad I many impurities to the
blood, and form one of the great caus
es of eruptions and biliousness. Of
the fats, tliosu derived from beef aud
mutton are to be preferred to butter,
which, being liable to so many changes
and impurities, should always be dis
pensed with iu connection with meats.
Butter, even when- lieslily made,
should lie taken sparingly. In too
large quantities it furnishes' the system
with more nourishment tnan it can a!
sorb. The excess, by decomposition,
rentiers the blood impure, disorders the
digestive organs, causing headache, las
situde, nausea, and sometimes dianh ;a.
Fruits, especially when fresh, should
be largely eaten, but g-nerally at meals.
Then the stomach, having performed
its work, is allowed to rest awhile and
gather strength, that when the time
for action comes again, its work may
be done thoroughly. Hearth anJ
The following story told by John
Smith (we will suppose his name to be
Smith) 'and his son Virgil, is said to be
a "true bill": Smith had a very prom
ising young horse, now for the first
time iii training for the track. The

some ten years of age, was speeding
the, colt around the track, and was
mak-ingthe run in gallant stvle, when
the cold suddenly shied and threw the
Imw niT Tim cause of tli s was a vounir
porker that had slowed himself in the
brush close to the track, a quiet specta
tor of the colt's performance, until the
latter got almost opposite to him, when,
hog-like, he made a violent rush, with
the result mentioned. By the time his
anxious father reached the ground the
boy was on his feet unhurt. Said the
"Virgil, you don't know how to ride
a colt, to let a little pig liko that throw
you off. I don't want the colt spoiled ;
I want him to go round the track, and
I'll show you that a pig can't prevent
"I'll bet you" said Virgil, he'll throw
you, too. if" a pig makes a jump like he
did with me."
"No, he won't, Virgil; you can get in
the brush there, and when I ride him
around you can grunt like a pig. I'll
show you how it is done," said the el
Accordingly the colt was caught and
mounted by Smith the elder, the boy in
the meantime having taken his position
iu the bush to play the role of pig, in
which he succeeded to perfection, for
when the sire, after a rattling run, had
reached the proper place, he started
like a young grizzly, and, tearing out of
the bush, caused the panic-struck colt
to pitch his rider ingloriously in the
dirt. Gathering himself up. he said
savagely, "What did you do that for?
I told you to grunt like a pig, not like
a blasted old hog."

Children Fashions For Spring.
The fashionable designs for Master
and Misses for the present sa-son, will
exactly met t the wishes of thoso
mothers who wish to dress tlieir chihW
n-n in a convenient, practical, conifer
table, yet becoming manner.
The styhs are simple yet very grace
ful, and can be arranged in the most
inexpensive manner. L'idies in the
country especially, who fctill have timd
to sewj ami who know how to use a
sowing machine, can apply a braiding"
pattern to a cheap limn or cotton
material as ea&ily and quickly as they
could formerly run a seam, and for a
mere triile in money turn out as pretty
a suit as would cost five to ten dollars,
ready-made, and then not bo half so
well adapted to its purpose, or half so ,
The "Laura" suit, and the."Blouse
polonaise are particularly recommend
ed for girls of from six to twelve years
of age. f offspring find summer wear
Xothing can be prettier, nothing mora
readily put together ttian these designs
The "Laura" Mtit consists of skirt
and polonaise, the latter a loose sack
liclted in, and slightly draped over A
gored skirt. The front is oj'en to tht5
waist, and forms leaves which aid
lapp"d over the fullness at the back.
Separated from the skirt, the over'
dress foims the "blouse" polonaise, and"
may be obtained separately from thd
skill, by those who do not want a pat'
tern of the entire suit.
