The Little Grare.
It's only a Uttle grr,m they seld,
"Only Just a ehild that's dead;
And so they carelessly turned away
From the mound the spade had made that
Ah I they did net know how deep a shade
That little grave in ear home had mada.
I know the coffla was narrow and small
One yard would kave served for aa a an pie
And one man in kit arm eomld have borne
The rosewood and Its freight of clay;
But I know that darling hopes were hid
Xeoeata that little coffin-lid.
I know that a mother stood that day
With folded hands by that form of clay I
I know that burning tear were bid
'Keath the drooping laah and aching lid;
And I know her lip, and cheek, and brow
Were almost aa white ae the baby's now.
I know that some things were hid away.
The crimson frock and wrappings gay;
The lit.le sock and half-worn shoe;
The cap with its plume and tassels blue;
And an empty erib, with its covers Spread,
As white as the face of the gnileless dead.
Tis a little grave; bat eh t have a care.
For tanoy world-wide Lopes ace buried there;
And ye, perhaps, in coming years
May see, hii her, through blinding tears,
How much of light, how much of joy,

LOCKED IN A CLOSET.
Aunt ClAckctt had inYited company
Aunt Clackett lived all alone in a
little gable-emlcd cottage, with Turkey-red
curtains to fill the windows, a
velvety mass of fine geraniums i:i the
casements, and odd little three-cornered
cupboards, with prlass fronts,
Mhose shelves were i acked with old
chinn, curious specimens of jipanned
ware and piece? of brocade and -rutin
which belonged to a century gone by.
AuntCJackeft was one ot'thcae odd,
oriq-inal old l;ulica who. having con
trived to wreck her matrimonial bark
early in life, was continually steeiiii-;
oiTin all sorts of unexpected direc
tions. She hjid espoused the crusc ot
woman's independence witli great ve
hemence, joined a debntinf' club, aud
quarrelled with tlie Vice President at
the second meet ii.tj.
"A Hz for woman' riht'!" said
ilias Clackett, "They've moie rights
than they know what to do with al
ready." Then fhe devoted herself to philan
thrope, turned her house into a min
iature orphan aylum,aud went prowl-

search of proteges. But after she had
been robbed twice she abandoned the
vvhole thin-; and went for the natural
Nature can't disappoint one," said
31 !! Clackett.
But Nature did. The little fishes m
her aquarium died, the stuffed animal
fell to pieces, aud the rare specimens of
phtnta in her herbarium turned out to
te poison ivy, and had nearly been tbo
death of her.
So then Miaj Clackett took to liter
ature. "Shakspeare is eternally divine,"
eaid Miss Clackett "And the crea
tions of one's brain are perpetually
So that now Rhe went about with
inky liti"ers,a portfolio nnder her arm

Or at lenf-t tha girl whom ehc called
lier niece, for Dorothea Dtxld was no
actual relative to the eccentric little
oid Isdy in the snulF-colored front and
twinkling gold -spectacles. She was
the last lingering relic of the philan
thropic pcheme, a dark-skinned, sol
emn-eyed little orphan, whom Miss
Clackett had fished up out of a rag-
and-bottle cellar somewhere, and had
lad m the outhoue, and refused to go
when the other orphans were ban
ished, en maswe, to the care of thepub-
lic charities and corrections.
"Please, ma'am, can't I stay?" eaid
Dorothea. "I won't be no trouble,and
I'm a good un to work."
"Bless my soul!" said Miss Ciack
ett. "Where have you been all this
"Plcate, ma'am, in the slied," an
swered Dorothea, promptly.
"Well, then, I suppose you'll have
to stay," said Miss Clackett.
And so Dorothea stayed.

this particular afternoon, "is every

ment at the touch of the rude Febru
ary blast. For Dorothea, like the
rose, had blossomed out a fair, slight
maiden, with a faint glow on her
olive cheeks, very black hair, growing
low on a sweet forehead, and the soft
est and most appealing of eyes, which
were neither black nor brown, but
melted into the deepest wiuc-ligUts at
every emotion of the heart.
"Everything is readv, Aunt Clack

Clackettt, absently. "What do you

"But I thought," said Dorothea,
"that people made money out of such
things. But you are 'spending' mon

loftily. "But -flto -yants bq mate

"But you have got to change your
dress and do your hair yet, aunt," sug

"So I have so I have!" said Aunt
Clackett, "I do declare to you. child,
I had nearly forgotten about the tea

"Your cousin. Mr. Folkstone, and
his wife," said Dorothea.
Oh, yes, I remember now," said
Aunt Clackett. "Fanny Folkstone,

embroidered slippers, and writes me
such loving letters every birthday.
"Andr Mr. Mole, the clergyman."
"Such a pious, delightful voting
man," paid Miss Clackett, "And the
Misses Walker, who enjoy hearing the
portions of my new serial so much,
and my cousin, Theodore Teftnd old
Mrs. Iiapidan.and Seringa Pole. Yes,
yes, I remember now!"
And Miss Claokett trotted op stairs
to put on her black silk dress and gold
mosaic set to do honor to the guests
he had completely forgotten.
In the middle of her toilet,however,
a literary idea occurred to her, and sit
ting down to commit it to prtper,she
lost all count of time, until the hum
of voices below warned her that her
guests hr.d at lrtpt arrived. She then
jumped up hastily, wiped her pen and
flung the foolscap sheets this way and
"I must mako haste," she said.
lTu rrying down the staire, she be
thought her of a certain little garnet
clasp which she liked to wear, wwed
on a velvet ribbon, acros ths parting
of the snuff-colored "front" on her
forehead. And squeezing herself into
one of the odd little octagon closets
between the parlor and dining-room
she unluckily contrived to lock her
self in by some patent arrangement
as complete as it was terrible,
"That self-locking latch I had put
on last week," snid .Miss Clackett to
herself. "Oh, dear! oh, dear! Here I
am just exactly like the bride in tho
'Mistletoe Bough' song."
She was about to call to Dorothea
to come and liberate her, when the
sound of her owu name, pronounced
in the mild accents of Mr. Mole, the
clergyman, arrested the words upon
"Where is our dear Miss Clackett?"
demanded that honey-voiced divine.
"She must have fallen into a fit of
abstraction up-stairs," id the eldest
"Tea is quite ready," said Dorothea.
"I have rung the bell twice. Perhaps
I had better go up-stai and see what
has become of her."
"Do, my dear," said old Mrs. Tlapl

wav, "for I'm quite perishing for my

of a scared lace.
"I can't find her anywhere," said
she. "I have called and called and

"And have an administrator an

Theodore Tost, abstractedly helping
himself to a lice of cold boiled tongue
and anMher of York ham.
Miss Clackett, who was not without
a sense of humor, chuckled to herself
as she listened to their remarkablo

"Well," said Mrs. Bapidan, "dead or

meat "And if you will be good enough

"I won't!" said Dorothea, with blaz

"What?" ejaculated old Mrs. Rap
"Go out of the house, every one of

"Well, I never!" cried the Misses
Walker in chorus.
"Leave the house, I fay," reiterated
Dorothea. "It is Aunt Clackett's
house. You have no business to sit
here and talk so about her!"
"Aunt Clackett, indeed!" said Ser
inga Pole. "As if she is any relation
of yours, miss! I, for one, shall say
what I please about her. She is a
crazy old lunatic, and "
Bnt just here there was a pound of a
vigorous pair of knuckles on the door
which connects the parlor closet with
tlie dining room.
"What's that?" said Mr. Mole, start
ing np in alarm.
"A ghost!" said Miss Walker, nerv
ously. "Rats!" said Mr. Folkstone.
"No,it isn't!" said Miss Clackett, "it

rothea, you will find the patent key on
the parlor mantel-shelf. Be so good
as to get it and kt me oat,"
And the next moment Mis Clackett
walked smilingly out into the aston
ished baud of her relations and friends,
took the head of the table, and began
to pour out the tea.
"A hem!" coughed Mr. Mole.
"We were really beginning to be
quite alarmed about you," said Mrs.
Folkstone, moving uncomfortably iu
"So Ihould think," said Miss Clack
But she was as pleasant and cordial
as ever.and when her guests took leave
they really did not seem to know

After they were gone.however.Miss
Clackett heid out her hand to Doro
thea. "Come here and kis me, my dear,"
said she. "I see that 1 have one friend
left in the world at least."
And 6he made her will next day in
favor of Dorothea Dodd.
"Not that I mem to die at present,"
said she : "but it's always well to bo
prepared for any emergency."
And she never invited that particu
lar party of guests to tea again as long
as she lived.

The career of tho "Vibrator" has
been one long serial success, tho best
proof of which is perhaps found in the
numerous imitators which have sprung
up over the country claiming to embo
dy the "Vibrator" principle, or to bo
"as L-ood as the Vibrator." Mersrs.
Nu hob;, Shepard & Co, have been es
tablished fur more than thirty years
dating from 1813: and for more than
twenty yours the "Vibrator" has held
the position at the head of threshers.
Tlie features of uperioiity are so ma
ny in the "Vibrator," that to fciiumcr
ate them all would be a task for an ex
perienced and practical operator.
Among them we may notice a few.
Tlie inner parts fer separating and
cleaning are much wider than iu tho
ordinary thicshtis. The separating
work is complete aud mostly dono at
the cylinder. The threshing is dono
cleanly and perfectly, and there is no
grain or seed left to remain in the
head or carried out into the etraw.
The grain is clean before it toucheH
the sieve; and when tho "Vibrator"
delivers grain it is iu condition fit for
market. The simplicity of construc
tion is an important feature in tho
machinery of the "Vibrator." Tho run
ning and wearing parts are few. Re
pairs ccst but little, and all the parts
arc built with reij-iid to durability and
wear. No "Apron" machine will staud
the wear and tear of years as tho "Vi
brator" will. None but tho best of ma
terials are used in its construction., tho
lumber being entirely air-seasoned by
years of exposure under the company'
sheds. The stocks of this lumber car
ried at the factory at Battle Creek,
Mich., exceed C.OUO.OOO feet. The sales
of the "Vibrator" thres .ers, engines,
and horse powers cro steadily growing
with each season. They have the mar
ket and will hold it. The firm was in
