Yes! nrartv a rtiC have I seen die: I
Many a man. many a woman, and no
end of children, boys and girls. It is
not often you find a person who isn't
afraid. Few grown up people are con
tent to quit, letting alone the poor
scared little folks. I have talked with
men half an hour before they died
well, I may say, up to the last minute.
They were pretty much all afraid. I
don't wonder! I am afraid to die my
self, bnt I am not afraid to be dead.
It is only the operation; and when you
come close to it a horror takes hold,
; takes hold hard. There was Colonel

; of Chester, fought like a lion in the
war of 1812 -my wife and I took care
of him all his last sickness. I got three
dollars a night and my wife two dol
lars a day. That was good pay ought
to satisfy any reasonable man and wo
man. They didn't mind the money.
The squire said to me, "Take good care
They go in peace. They f?ogo in peace.
I have minded that.

Ah, the children, poor innocent little
jcreatnres! They tire frightened easy ;
greatly frightened sometimes. But
when they get very sick they don't
seem to be afraid, like grown folks.
They are more quiet, more resigned I
like, don't fret so much. Said I to one i

That the whole U.S. came there to dine
Across Sixth street we strike the bank,
And stop our pencil with a yank,
For those 'ere chaps, the last six weeks,
Have made our happiness come in
One day they open next they close
Like oysters on a spree, we s'pose.
The head boss here is J no. R. Clark,
With Tommy Evans first ass't cl(e)ark,
While Cushing does the heavy standing
And Wagh oft helps thern when
they're stranding.
And sometimes play 3 on a harp about
four strings.
Dan. Wheeler lives aeros tho walk,
A nice white housj that's just the
And Dan., hisself, is one of the boys,
About that same, we'll make no noise,
A dirty little dug-out on the corner of
two lots.
Did once contain a long legged Fole,
named Otz.
The County Court House, next we find,
To name its inmates all, would break

The next man on our business roll
Is lVter Merges, bless his sole,
His uppers too, and all his pins,
We bless the man, but not his sins;
He makes good boots and sells good
And pays his atfs. without the blues,
Vie wish friend Merges awl good luck,
And hope at Last, he'll not get stuck.
There's Dr. Chapman, side by side
With Merges stems the business tide.
A druggist he, a Doctor too,
He'll patch you up so you'll go through
Or sell you putty, powder," paint, and
all the things

He's sick at Koine, don't live there now,

He came from England, with a smile,

He knew a man that M-orked for An-

no use; he didn't see it; be Mould n't

he beckoned me to him.
"Amos" says he, in a hoarse whisper,
"I've got to go."
"I guess not this time, colonel," says
I. "Keep up good courage."
"I've got to go," he whispered again.
Then I saw the horror M as on him.
He Milted right down after that.
Well, I won't go particulars; he
died that very night.
"Bnt pious people?"
Pious! What do you call pious?
They are few. The Lord says they are

typhus fever. We all calculated he
would pull through. Doctor thought
so. In fact, he did pull through, but
took a relapse. Before that he kept
saying how resigned he Avas to God's
will; he told the minister so everyday,
and the minister Avould pray with him,

had sat up a good deal too long; I told
him so; but visitois came to see him,
and he did not mind what the doctor
said, nor what I said neither Where

''About the relapse ?"
Yes; it took him a little after mid
night. The deacon called me. You
see he Avas so much better he did not
need quite so close Avatching. I Avas
sitting in a chair, in a light doze,
by tlie bed. I sprang up quick.
"Do you Avant anything?" says I.
"Amos," says he, "I don't feel Avell."
His A'oice trembled, and I thought
peahaps he had been dreaming or some
thing. "I guess you are a little nervous,"
says I; "oA'erdone a little. You iiaA'e

"Am op," says the deacon, "send for
Doctor Lynn."
"Why Deacon LeM'is "
"Send right away. Wake up Reuben,

round the bed and began crying, and

was taken aback and no mistake. He
just set eyes on the sick man and said,
"Too many folks in the room." Y.'hen j

Xow, that is what I call faith. 1 tell
you, the children have the advantage.
The Lord says so.
"And women?"
In course, I have not seen women as

called in when there is a change. As
a general rule they are believers. They

That is about it. They ay ill listen qui

man is restless and asks questions.
There is vo denying it, they are a bet

said so.
"Don't yoa meet Avith persons Avho

Yes but it isn't often. Once in a

kind of rpottel fever, the doctors
called it; very cold .Summer, frost
every month, and warms rains and hot
sun in September, I guess you remem

Elnathan lay in one room, and his
wife in another. I and my Avife took
care of them. Everybody in town
knew about the Will, and as it was
pretty muck decided that neither of
them could get avcII, folks were talk
ing and laughli'g and guessing Miiich
Avould last the longest, for nobody
oared Avhcther they lived or died.
Elnathan was a dreadful Avicked old
creature. He could curse and swear
M orse than any man I ever heard. His
wife AAas a church-member, but her
scolding, I have heard folks say was than Elnathan's swearing. She
had the minister called in as soon as
she took sick. He came every day to
pray Avith her. When he came the old
man would make me shut the door, so
he couldn't hear, and he Avould go on
awful till the minister Avas gone.
One day, as he Avas going out of the
front door, Elnathan says to me:
"Tell Mr. Bliss I Avant to see him."
I at as half scared to death. for he bad
been cursing worse than usual.
"Tell Mr. Bliss I want to sea him,"
says he again.
I ran after the minister and did the

" 'Tain't yours to give, El," screamed
a voice from the other room'' 'Tain't

The old man didn't heed the inter
ruption, but kept looking the minister
in the face.
He answered solemnly:
"Mr. Sage, Avhat you ask is known
only to God."
"Then why do you come
sneaking around pretending to be Aviser
