Let to-morrow take care of to-morrow.
Leave the things of the future to fate ;
What's the use to anticipate sorrow?
Life's troubles comes never to late.
If to hope ever to much be an error,
'Ti9 one that the wise have preferred ;
And how often have hearts been iu terror
Of evils that never occured !
Have faith and thy faith shall sustain thee ;
Permit not suspicion aud care
With invisible bonds to enchant thee.
But bear what God gives thee to bi ar
By His Spirit supported and, gladdened,
Be ne'er by 'forebodings" deterred.
But think how oft hearts have been saddened
By fear of what never occured 1
Let to-morrow take care of to-morrow !
Short and dark as our life may appear,
We my make it still darker by sorrow.
Still shorter by folly aud f j ar.
Half our troubles ara half o.ir invention,
And often from blessings conferred
Have we chruiik In wild apprehension
Of evils that uever occured 1
Only a Boj.
Only a boy, with his noise and fun.
The veriest mystery under the sua ;
As brimful of mischief, and wit and glee,
As evei a human frame can be.
And as hard to manage as ah .' ah, me I
'Tis hard to tell.
Yet wc have hiin well.
Only a boy, with his artful tread,
Who cannot be driven, but must be led.
Who troubles the neighbors' dogs and cats,
He tears more clothes find spoils more hats.
Loses more tops and kites and bats.
Than would stock a store
For a year or more.
Only a boy, with his wild, strange ways ;
With his idle hours on busy days ;
With his queer remarks and his odd replies,
Sometimes foolish and sometimes wise,
Often brilliant for one of his size.
As a meteor hurl'ed
From the pleaaut world.
Only a boy, who will be a man
If nature goes on with her first great plan
If water, or fire, or some fatal snare
Conspire uot to rob us of this our heir,
Oui blessing, our trouble, our ;est, our care.
Our torment, our Joy,
"Only a boy."
AN AILUY ST0UY.
The Tale of ths Noble ?.lale of Sumter.
The Hartford Times says: When
Dahlgren's ironclads began operations
in Charleston harbor, the Tenth Array
Corps made a sudden dash and drove
in the thin line of pickets which the
rebels had posted on the east end of
Morris Islaud. When daylight came
every gun that Beauregard could bring
to bear upon the new worn began to
rain shut and shell, and from daylight
till noon there were lively times in and
about Charleston Bay. Shortly after
noon Tort .Sumpter opened furiously,
and it vu3 feared that an attack was
about to be male by tha enemy to ad
vance. There were enough men there,
it was thought, to hold it, but there
was a deficiency of ammunition, and so
a mule-driver volunteered to deliver
ths ammunition. The only road was
the sin ioth and sandy beach along the
bay, and the distance between the two
points about a mile and a half. Half
tljat distance was within easy range of
Fort Sumpter, and Battery Wagner's
guns covered all the way to the sand
hills, behind which was the Federal
I am describing this incident as it ap
ueared from the shipping in the bay,
and what called attention to it was
the sudden waking up of every gun
on the southeast angle of Sumpter.
Looking to see the cause of the fu
rious cannonading, everybody was sur
prised to see a mule team tearing up
the beach in the direction of the new
work. The driver was laying the lash
on, and that mule had its ears laid
straight back, aud was making its legs
go. Occasionally a shell would touch
the beach, bound up and explode, and
the mule would then hesitate and try
to turn back. But ' the driver would
lay the cowhide 011 with renewed vig
or; then the mule puc on anotherspurt,
until at last it became entirely demor
alized by the explosion of a ten inch
shell almost under its belly. Every
glass in the squadron was leveled at
the spectacle. The driver got off his
seat, took the animal by the head,
whirled it around once or twice and
started it up the beach once more. Fort
Sumter flashed and flamed, Battery
Wagner belched and thundered, and
still that daring driver urged his mule
along, though the way was swept by at
least thirty guns.
At last ha reached his destination,
but he could not stay there, and in a
moment he wa3 turned around, and
exhorting that animal to do its leyel
best. The mule did not need to be told
to step out, for iu its rear there was
roar and racket, and about its ears
were flying sand and scrap iron, which
seemed to stimulate its fleetness. Down
that hard beach flew the mule, the
light cart bobbing and swaying, and
the driver's arms rising and falling aa
he dealt out lash after lash. At last
they neared the friendly shelter of the
sand hills. In another minute they
would be safe, but just as they near
the place to turn aside a shell cam?
screaming from Surcter. Everybody
could see the huge mass of iron as it
roared through the air. It struck the
beach d'rectly in the rear of the mule,
and with a bound it overtook it aud
exploded with terrific violence. A
general exclamation is heard from
Dahlgren's flag-ship, where the Admi
ral and his stall are earnestly gazing at
the adventurous mule and his daring
driver. Fort Sumter's ramparts are
black with men, they, too, willing wit
nesses of Yankee pluck Along the
swell of Morris Island, and covering
every elevation, can be seen the Union
soldiers, who stand with bated breath.
anxious and full of s jspense, and every
eye intently taking in the scene. When
the shell exploded a circle of smoke
hid the mule for a moment, but when
the smoke cleared away Mr. Mule had
his ears laid back, and, with head down
and legs lashing wildly out, he was
making kindling wood of the cart,
which had been badly demoralized by
a fragment of the shell. Fresently the
driver is seen limping to the mule; in
a second the mule is free from the cart,
and, with the driver on his back, a;.d a
farewell whisk of his tail, disappears
behind the cover of the hills.
The thousands of boys in blue unite
in a long and hearty hurrah; the sail
ors wave their hats and shout them
selves hoarse, and hark! the rebels have
caught the infection and are cheering,

THE VANDEUKILT SCANDAL,
Kacy Testimony Furnished by the Late
New Yoiik, November 14. The
Vanderbilt will case was resumed to
day, and Dr. Linsey, the Commodore's
physician, recalled for further exami
nation, lie said he selected all other
medical attendants, subject to the Com
modore's approval. Wm. II. Vander
bilt did not interfere during his last
illness. I frequently heard Mr. Van
derbilt talk with Wm. II. about his
will. Ou one occasion I remember sit
ting in the Commodore's room, and
Win. II. entered. The father and son
began to talk business, and I rose to
leave the room. The Commodore mo
tioned mo to a chair and said, "Sit
down." I did so, and he said, "Billy
after I am dead, there will be a great
responsibility on you. You will find a
piece of paper. It is my will. I charge
you to carry it out faithfully." Wil
liam acquiesced by uodding his head.
He afterwards pointed his finger to
William and said: "You will -have a
great load on your shoulders. When I
am dead see to it that you carry ou
my will faithfully." I remember he
asked me at one time to come and live
with him. He said: "If I had died du
ring my illness in. -New Jeisey the'
world would never have known me. I
believe I have been spared to accom
plish a great good." That g.od was
the Central Road. He said he would'
not like to leave $5,000,000 to one
daughter. because all his children would
get into the road aud turn PilloutJ
and put Torrance in, and they would
put the stock on the market and run
the price down to forty. The Commo
dore told Mrs. Le Bau, the contestant,
that he had done the best he could in
his will, and, in speaking of the will of
1854, he stated that he gave the bulk
of his property to Wm. II. and to Geo.
The lactet died fifteen. years ago. His
mind was clearer and he had more for
titude than most men. His mind was
entirely sound. Within two months
of his death he- told Mrs. Le Bau, in
the presence of the witness, that he
had made the best will he could, and
witness thought that it wa3 in hpr
presence he said that, if he made his
will a hundred times, he would not
make it differently.
LOVE'S Y0UN DREAM
A Double Elopement Extraordinary In
Special Dipalch to the Globe-Democrat.
Carthage, Mo., November 14. This
city and community has been thrown
into great excitement for two days
past over the elopement of two young
lads and two lassies, whose ages range
from thirteen to fifteen years. One of
the boys is the son of the Cashier of
the First National Bank of this city,
and the other the son of a prominent
lawyer. The girls are both daughters
of verv respectable families, and their
remarkable escapade is, perhaps with
out a precedent. The names are with
held for the sake of tho thoughtless
young girls, who, it is hoped, may yet
bo reclaimed from the ruinous path
they have chosen. The runaway was
made on Monday evening, and although
the children were missed it was not
uutil Tuesday that it was ascertained
that they had slid together. Officers
were put on their trail, but only suc
ceeded in finding their camping place
on Monday night, about four miles
east of town in the woods along Spring
River. Nothing further could be learn
ed 01 the fugitives until this morning
abont daylight, when one of the boys
came to town for some provisions and
told a chum of their whereabouts. This
chum gave them away to the officers,
who soon found them secreted in very
comfortable quarters in a large ha)--stack
about a mile outside of the city
limits, where the cold rain of last night
had driven them. On seeing the offi
cers approaching the four fled for the
woods, but the officers chased them so
closely that the young Don Juans for
sook their Ilaidees and reached the
woods in safety. The girls were brought
to town and returned to their families.
The boys were pursued until nearly
noon to-day, but outwitted the officers,
and are still at large. The girls will
not converse, nor give any explanation
of their rash and dangerous act. The
four have been infatuated with each
other's charms for some time, and it is
probable that they thus thought to
reach some point where they could
live by themselves unknown to the
world. They are all well educated and
smart for their age, and the girls are
very pretty and vivacious. They start
ed on foot without food or extra cloth
ing, and the sudden change of the
weather doubtless frustrated their
A Genuine Democratic Yicw of Hayes'
This is the way the genuine out and
outers talk about President Hayes. It
certainly looks as if they wasn't con
ciliated enough, somehow7.
At the serenade to the Ohio Demo
cratic Congressmen at Washington on
Thursday evening, the Hon. Milton
Savior said: "I have heard.it said
somewhere as a matter of consolation
to our republican friends, that all Ohio
has but endorsed the poiicy of the
President. Laughter and applause
I say to you without any hesitation
I say to you most emphatically that
so far as the southern policy of Mr.
Hayes is concerned, the Ohio democra
cy have endorsed it. Applause. But
I say to you that for ten years the high
priests and prophets of the democratic
party in Ohio have preached that poli
cy from every stump and every cross
road. The democrats have endorsed
that policy because it is their own pol
cy, and a policy adopted by'a Republic
an Administration because it
was forced upon them by that mighty
power wielded by the people of the
country, whom no party can ultimate
ly withstand. But I will tell you what
they do not endorse. They do not en
dorse that eight to seven Commission.
They did not endorse an electoral con
spiracy whereby a gentleman who has
neither a majority of the popular vote

the country was placed, against the
will of the people, in the Presidential
INAUGURATED BY CORRUPTION AND
The Hon. Frank Hurd. member of
Congress from the Western Reserve,
said in the course of his speech: The
victory was not one w ith an uncertain
sound. The democratic platform, when
our candidates were put in nominrtlion
distinctly declatedthe the question up
on upon which we desired tho expres
sion of the people of our Stale. We
said that the President had been inaug
urated by fraud, and that Rutherford
B. Hayes had his office by perjury and
bribery and forgery and corruption.
Arpb.uvj.l The r"?c?le o? OVo
claied in their election that in their
judgment Mr. Hayes is a usurper, ns
much of a usurper as though at the
head of a legion of soldiers he had
inarched into the District of Columbia
and by violence taken possession of
the Presidential chair more truly a
usurjier than in that case, because if
an army had been formed before the
people, if banners had been waving,
the American people would have risen
in their power and driven back the
legions and saved the Capitol. Ap
plause. But as it was he obtained the
of3ce by stealth. By corruption and
dishonor wa3 this man inaugurated,
and his title has been condemned all
over the land at every succeeding elec
tion." A CRIME THAT CANNOT BE CONDONED
Another Ohio Congressman, the Hon.
A. B. Rice, said that the democratic
victory in Ohio put a stamp upon one
of the greatest crimes, one of the great
est frauds, that has ever been commit
ted, which was the inauguration of a
President who was not elected by the
people. This is what the people of
Ohio condemned and that for which
they held the Republican party and its
chosen leaders responsible. It was a
crime that could not be condoned or
BURGLARIZING TIIE WHITE HOUSE.
Gen. Banning said he had left his
voice in Ohio, where they had con
demned on Tuesday last by 30,000 ma
jority the burglarizing of tho White
House. He had no voice to talk with,
but his heart was full. The state that
a few years ago gave more than a 100,
000 tor a Republican governor had re-1
deemed itself, and condemned the act
ion of the Board of Eight.
A SECOND BELSHAZZAE.
The Hon. J. S. Blackburn, of Ken
tucky said the contest in Ohio was not
upon local issues. Neither the school
question nor the Pope's toe had crept
into the question. He said that while
Ohio could furnish a man to be chief
executive of this country, the Presi
dent could not appeal to his own neigh
bors for an endorsement of his right
to the office to which lie was not enti
tled. He said that Belshazzar read his
doom in a handwriting of blazing let
ters upon the wall, and asked: "Is there
a man here who does not know that
he who sits in yonder mansion rests
uneasy. since the verdict of the Ohio
people, and reads his doom in that ver
dict?" He said that political jugglers,
political conspirators, and, in plain
English, political thieves, might deter
mine that the fold of the Democratic
banner should not be unfurled from
yonder Capitol of the nation, but the
Ohio Democrats had determined that
it should be unfurled from the Capitol

Two men met on the piazza of the

FOR THE HOUSEHOLD.
We give from a "Budget ff Home
made Christinas Gifts" in St. Nicho
las, (that best of all magazines for chil
dren.) descriptions of a few articles
which may help some of our young
readers in making the Christmas pres
ents. But if they want to get a good
many more designs that we cannot give,
on account of the illustrations, we ad
vise them to buy frt. Nicholas for 17 -vein
her, and when they get that wo
know they will coax their parents to
subscribe the next year.
Boys who have learned to use their
pocket-knives skillfully may make a
very pretty ,set of hanging shelves by
taking three bits of thin wood (tho
-ides of a cigar-box for instance), well
smoothed and oiled, boring a hole in
each corner, and suspending them with
cords, run in, and kotted underneath
eacli shelf as in the pic ture. The wood
should be abont eight inches long by
three wide, and the shelves small as
they are, will be found convenient for
holding many little articles.
Baby's Shofs in Cashmere. Babie
who can't walk are particularly hard o.t
their shoes! We once heard of vr.o
who "wore out" nine pairs in two
months! In these circumstances, it
seems very desirable to have a home
shoe-maker, and not have to frequent
the shops too often; so wo will tell
you of an easy kind, which almost any
little sister can make. You must ti!.o
an old morocco shoe which fits, and
cut out the shape in paper, flrst tho
sole, and then the upper. Then cut
the same shape in merino or cash
mere, line the little sole with Canton
flannel or silk, and bind it with very
narrow ribon. Line and bind the up
per in the same way, and feather-stitch
round the-top and- down both sides of
the opening in front; sew on two ends
of ribbon to tie round the ankle, a 'id
the shoe is done. It will look very
pretty on a baby's pink foot, and he.
will thank you for your gift in his own
way, by kicking his toes joyfully, and .
getting the shoes into his mouth, as.
soon as possible.
Sachets for Linen-Closets. If
you have any old-fashioned lavender
growing in your garden, you can easi
ly make a delightful sachet for mam;,
to lay among her sheets and pillow-cases
in the linen-closet, by cutting a
square bag of tarletane or Swims mus
lin, made as tastefully as you please,
and stuffing it full of the flowers. An
other delightful smell is the mellilott",
or sweet clover, which grows wild in
many parts of tho country, and has,
when dried, a fragrance like that of
the tonquin bean, only more delicate,
A Crib-Blanket for Baby. Th
prettiest and simplest crib-blanket
which we have kpch of late, was rrlf
of thick w hite flannel, a yard wide, and
a yard and a quarter long. Across
each end were basted two rowsef scar
let worsted braid, four inches apart,
and between the two a row of bright
yellow braid. These were cat-stitched
down on both edges with black worst
ed, and between them were rows of
feather-stitching in blue. Above, in
corner, was a small wheel made of
rows of feather-stitch black, red, yel
low and blue. Nothing could be eas
ier to make, but the effect was extreme
ly gay and bright, and we advise soino
of you who are lucky enough to "belong
to a baby" to try it.
Napkin-Bands. Any of you who
have mastered cross-stitch, and learned
to follow a pattern, will find these
bands easy enough to make. Their use
is to fasten a napkin around a child'a
neck at dinner, and take tho place of
that disobliging "pin." which is never
at hand when wanted. You must cut
a strip of Java canvas, two inches wide
by a foot long; overcast the edges, aud
work on it some easy little vine in
worsted, or a Grecian pattern, or, li:
you like, a short motto, such sis "more
haste worse speed." Line the strip
with silk, turn in the edges, overhand
them, and finish the ends with two of
those gilt clasps which are U3ed to loop
np ladies' dresses.
A Table-Cover. A really charm
ing cover for a small table can be i-iade
in this way: Cut a square or oblong.
j as the case may be of that loosely wo
ven linen which is used for glass-towels,
making it about four inches larger
than the table it is meant to fit. Palo
yellow or brown is the best color to se
lect. Ravel tho edge into a fringe two
inches deep; then, beginning two inch
es within the edge, draw the line:,
threads all round in a band an inch
and three-quarters wide. Lace the
plain space thus left with dark-red rib
bon of the same width, woven m and
out in regular spaces, and at each cor
er tier the ribbon in a graceful knot
with drooping ends.
A Window Transparency. An
other pretty use for autumn leaves is
a transparency for a window. Arrange
a group of the leaves upon a pan,? of
glass, lay another pane cf sarao sizo
over these, and glue tho edges togeth
er, first with a strip of stout muslin,
and then with narrow red ribbon, leav
ing a loop at each upper corner to hang
it up- by. The deep leaf colors seeu
