"Cluck, cluck, cluck," said the young speckled
And she poked up her nest again and again ;
She Btirred It hither.
She stirred it thither ;
r.ut the egg had gone she knew not whither
The nice white egrg she ycstciday laid
In the round soft uest, so skillfully made.
"Cluck, cluck, cluck," she uttered, and then
She smoothed her nest all over again,
And added another,
Just like tlie other,
"In a few short days I'll be the mother'
Of ten bright chicks," she chirruped aside.
And slio rustled her feathers with motherly
Rut, alas ! wl.ile taking her frugal meal,
borne ruthless robber this did steal.
She w as angry then,
As a cross old hen,
And bristled her buck up agidn nnd . gain ;
Rut a happy thought came tuto her mind
Til bulid wiother they cannot find."
Bo, under a" burdock, broad and Tvldo.
Bhe lafd another with fondest pride .
"And now we'll see,"
She said with glee,
'TVho will take this pearly egg from me."
But a hungry weasel came that day
And stole her darling egg away.
Did she give up trying? Oh ! no, not she ;
But her nest was a perfect mystery.
They scampered about,
And made a great rout,
But her snug little nest they couldn't find out ,
And one beautiful day Mrs. Pullet was seen
A strutting about with her brood on the green-
I counted tha yellow balls eight, nine, ten ;
And a prjud young mother was she just then.
The moral is plain :
If you wou'd attain1
An object in view be it riches, or fame,
Or honor, or learning whatever it be,
"ever give up !" aud success you may see.

TYh.VTS IX A NAME?
"It is of no use papa! The idc of dis
jMisino; of me in such a style as if I
were to have no voice in the matter !"
And Edith tossed her pretty brown curia
with an air of determination. "To have
one's husband selected for one is ab
"Edith," said her father, ''do try to be
reasonable; 3 0U know I should never wish
to force your inclinations in such a seri
ous matter. You have often heard me
epeak of Jlr. Chester; he was a very clear
friend of mine at college, but after that
we lost siht of each other for many
years, until I went abroad, when I met
my old friend, but only to lose him again
in a few weeks by dualh. lie kit rac th
guardian of his only child, a sou of nine
teen, w ho was then studying in a medical
college in Paris, and heir to a large for
tune. Ui-'foro dying, my friend expressed
a wish that you should marry his sou.
Young Chester was to know nothing of
his father's wish until he had finished his
btudics when lw: was tr come to Scar
borough. That was four year ag. I
have kept myself informed as to his char
acter and have always received the most
'Oh. I suppose he is a perfect!'' said
Edith saucily. "But let me hope that
lie has found his 'true love;' if not, he
may object to having a wife selected for
him. But you don't expect me to stay
here to fall dutifully iu "love witli thir
young doctor, I hope! Aunt Can re starts
for fccai borough soon, and I have made
arrangements to go with her. When do
you expect this young prodigy?"
"Edith," said her lather, sternly, "I
wish you to understand that you arc to
treat Mr. Chester, while lie is my guest
with respect, if nothing more, and not' let
yourfooiish love of romance prevent you
from seeing his many admirable traits
of character. It is one of my dearest
wishes to see you married to him; but,
as I have said, I shall not force your
wishes, lie will not come here until Sep
tember, so that will give you plenty of
time at Scarborough."
"Well, you arc a dear good papa," said
Edith, throwing her arms around his
neck and looking up roguishly into his
face. "I'll be as fascinating as possible,
if I don't meet my fate in some one else
"I'll risk it," said her father, pinching
Edith Darling was the only child of
Nathan Darling, a wealthy banker. Her
mother had died when .--he was but live
years old, and her father had not married
again. So Miss Edith had been flattered
and petted till I wonder she wasn't com
pletely spoiled; I must confess she
was rather fond of having her own way,
and generally managed to have it. She
was just nineteen at the time of my story
not particularly beautiful, but with ft
bright, intelligent face.
Monday found Edith delightfully set
tled at Scarborough, in a charming cot'
tage belonging to Mrs. Raymond, the
Aunt Carrie before epoken of, and Mr.-
Darling s sister, bhe usually ppeut her
summers there, with Edith and her son,-
a rollicking boy til fourteen, who had a
great admiration for his pretty cousin,
out liked to tease her occasionally, not
withstanding Edith and Fred would go
oil" in the aiteruoon to the cliffs, while
Aunt Carrie was enjoying a comfortable
doeat home. Edith ueueraliv carried a
book of her favorite poems, while Fred
managed to amuse himself in his own
fashion. He was never to be found when
it was tima to go home, and after she had
called him till she was hoarsey he would
make his appearance with his troupers
tucked in his boots ami hat drawn over
his eyes, aud inform " her that he had got
such a jolly tine crab down there and for
her to make haste and see him kick." .
One day they started off, and Edith
found the nicest kind of a nook,, and, bav
in"; established herself to her satisfaction,
prepared to enjoy it. Fred leaving her
alone as usuuL She had brought a book
to read, but, leaning back in lazy enjoy
ment of the day, watched the white sails
witlm dreamy look.in her eyes, as if her
thoughts were miles away. She happened
to glance down, and- became aware that &
pair of blue eyesr brimming over with
fun, were regarding her with, an amused
look from an udjoiuing rock. The owner
of said eyes Mas a young man of about
three-and-twenty, who seemed to be tak
ing life easy. His head was resting
against a rook, -while his feet were resting,
on another in true masculine fashion.
"Looks as if he had been a fixture
there all the afternoon," thought Edith,
trying to look as if she w as not aware that
he was lookiag at her, which attempt was
rather a failure.
She prepared to start for home, when
looking round she missed her hut, which"
she. had taken oil". The wind hadcurried
it away and lodged it in a crevice of. the
rocks tar down.
"How unfortunate!" thought Edith.
"I tua never go down there."
"Can I be of any usei"
Turning, Edith saw the youth of the
"I don't see how you can," said Editln
looking dubiously at the unfortunate hat,
which was resting peacefully on the rocks
After looking fo? some time they found
a long branch, and the hat was fished up
"A new and novel way of fishing," said
he, with a smile, as lie deposited it at her
feet. "Ferhaps you w ill thank me, though
you did look dignified when you discov
ered me on the opposite rock. Ueally, to
be candid, 1 thought seriously of asking
you if I could come over and read to you;
should you have been shocked if I hadf"
'Of course," said Edith, with a roguish
look; "it would have been very impro
per." 'Since the all important ceremony of
introduction cannot be dispensed with,
then allow me," said he, at the same time
taking a card-case from his pocket and
handing her a card.
As Edith took it some one shouted
"Edith!" and. looking down, they discov
ered Fred limping along with a doleful;
look. The interesting youth hd sprained
"How did you manage to do it?" asked
Edith, as she and her new friend assisted
"I was playing Robinson Crusoe on a
desert island," growled Fred, "and fell
off the rock.'
They finally readied home, where it
was lountl that the ankle had received a
pretty severe wrench, w hich would con
line Fred to tlie house for a few days.
Mrs. Raymond thanked the young btraug
cr for 90 kindly assisting- her niece, lie
proved to be a doctor and, after atteading
to Fred he went away, promising to call
in the morning and see his patient.
"How very fortunate he should have
been near," said Mrs. Raymond. "I won
der w ho he is?"
Edith said nothing to correct the im
pression that her aunt had received, but
after gaining her own room, drew the
card from her pocket and read it.
"John Smith !" exclaimed Editli with a
Tlie next morning found Edith estab
lished in the parlor,- ostensibly to keep
Fr-.d company, but really in piospect ot
the handsome doctor's call. She had not
long to wait before he was ushered into
tho room. After pronouncing Fred bet
ter he was interrogated by that youth as
to when he would be able to walk.-
"Not for four days," said the doctor.
"Rather hard work for you, isn't it? Are
you fond of rcadingf'
"les; I like books, it there are lots of
bears, !d alligators, and fighting in
"Well," said the doctor, laughing, "I
think I hare some works of that descrip

One day, just on the spot where they had
first met, he told her he loved her, and
won a similar confession from her sweet
lips. And then but of eoHrse you know
they forgot lor the next hour that they
were not the only pet son in the world.
Finally, Edith told her lover of Mr. Ches

"But I shall not marry him now," said
Edith, "unless," witli a roguish look, "you
particularly wish me to do so."

more closely in his urms and kiss the red
lips so temptingly near.
"And you will not marry that manf

The Nebraska Senatorsbip.
An independent article ratified by
the people of this State, as part of the
Constitution of 1375, reads as follows
"The Legislature may provide that
at the general election immediately
preceding the expiration of the term
of a United States Senator from this
State, the electors may. by ballot, ex
press their preference for some person
for the office of United States Senator,
The votes cast for such candidates
shall be canvassed and returned in the
same manner us for State officers.
In compliance with this constitution
al provision, the late legislature embo
died in the general election law the
following section :
"At the general election immediate'
ly preceding the expiration cf tire term
of a United States Senator irom this
State, the electors shall by ballot ex
press their preference for some person
for the oflice of United States Senator.
The votes to be canvassed as hereinaf
The general election immediately
preceding tlie expiratkm of the term
for which Senator PiKldock holds his
commission will take place on the sixth
day of November, 1830. Now, although
nearly eighteen months must elapse
before the people of Nebraska will le
called upon to express their preference
for L'nited States Senator through the
ballot-box, the public debate concern
ing the fitness af the various candidates
cannot be postponed to that time.
Eighteen hundred and eighty will be a
national campaign year. The Presi
dential nominations will be made witfv
in twelve mc-tiths from now, ami the
rattoiial issues will crowd local issues
to the backarrotind. The people cannot
intelligently express a preference for
Senator without an acquaintance with
the political record of the respective
candidates, and a personal presenta
tion of their respective claims, coupled
with an enunciation of principles up
on which they seek public support.
In other words the people will very
properly insist upon seeing am! hear
ing the candidates, unless they are gen
erally known, and their political ante
cedents and personal views on the
living issues of the day sue universally
While no public discussion on the
Senatorial succession has as yet been
entered upon by tlie public prints in
this State, an intense interest is mani
festing itself among the people who
evince a detertnin:itijn to send a man
to the United States Sfnate m lsi
who?e past record is a guarantee that
he never shirks a responsibility, and
never fears to express and vote his
honest sentiments; a man who will re
present the will and wish of the peo
ple with ability and fidelity; a man
who will do justice to thee rporations.
but will never become the pliant tool
of monopolies. In ratifying the inde
pendent article that permits the popu
lar expression of a preference for Unit
ed States Senator, the people of .Ne
braska have arrayed themselves against
li'Thtniny candidates and in favor of
men who conscious ot superior mental
endowments and moral courage, are
readv to pick up the gauntlet of any
intellectual giant that may challenge
them to enter the arena of public de

Philadelphia, June 13. The great
fire at Point Breeze has broken out
afresh, and is beyond the control of the
firemen. Thousands of barrels of oil
are on fire, and the heat is so intense
that the firemen can not reach the lire
with throw water. The lire started
from the bark "Ilion," lying iwar the
wharf, at 2 o'clock this morning, and
the boat being upet, the binning
brands were scattered into the water,
while the fire catching upon the dried
luiilbei? and barrels of an oil refinery,
and fanned by a stiff breeze, caused
the wharves soon to be aflame. It
soon caught the Empire storage com
pany's wharf, communicating with the
warehouse of thf.t concern, which,
filled with 4 ),000 or 50,000 empty oil
barrels, was acted upon like tinder,
and was food for the lire which kept
creeping onward, not all the force of
the brigade at hand being able to stay
it. The" three fire tugs, "Juno," New
