BARRY HALL'S CHRISTMAS.
uy xellii: imowjf.
It was the night before Christmas,
and little Harry Hall, as he Bat eating
liia coarse bread and milk, looked up
into his mother's care-worn face, and
Mother, shall I get any presents, to
morrow, do you think V
Mrs. Hall was a widow, whose hus
band had been dead several years, and
who, dying, had left her nothing but
the little house in which she lived, and
It was only by the greatest self-denial
and hard work that she managed to
make a living for herself and child.
And such a living as it wasl The
barest necessities of life sufficient
clothing to keep them from freezing,
and the plainest, coarsest food, wheat
bread being a rare luxury. And yet,
such as it was, the widow was thank
ful. She placed all her trust in Him
who "heareth the sparrows when they
cry," and she never doubted but that
in His own gocd time all would be well ;
and in answer to Harry's question she
"How old are you, my son ?"
Harry, pushing aside his now empty
bowl, and drawing his thin, meagre
little figure to its utmost height, said,
"Why, mamma, I was eight last Mon
day. See! I am almost a man."
Tiio widow smiled at his boyish
eagerness to be a man,-and, calling him
to her, she put her arm around him, and
drawing him toward her, she said:
"Yes, my dear, you are quite a man,
and mother is sorry that she can not get
you any presents this ear, but I have
been too poor to buy you anything.
But, to-morrow, you shall carry this
sewing homo to Mrs. JJell, and you can
have half the money to buy what you
wish. I tried hard to get it done so
that I might get you something; but I
can not finish it before the- shops are
For answer the boy threw his arms
about his mother's neck, and kissed her
again and again, saying:
"Oh, mother, how kind and good you
And then he sat down to think of
what he should buy. He sat thus for
some time, until at last he said:
"Are you sure she will pay you to
morrow, mamma V"
"Yes, my dear," answered Mrs. Hall,
"1 think she will, she has always paid
me very promptly for my work, and
she promised to pay me lor this as soon
as I ilnisl ed it. But it is almost bed
time, my son, and you must read your
chapter and go to bed."
They did not burn late fires at the
widow Hall's; fuel was too dear to be
unnecessarily wasted ; although many
h night after her little son was asleep
she would sit and sew until the gray
dawn of the morning; and that, too,
without a fire at which to warm her
cold, benumbed fingers.
Harry obediently got his little Bible,
and, after reading a chapter and saying
his prayers at his mother's knee, he
went to bed. While his mother sat
diligently sowing until the town bell
rang out the midnight hour, and then
her work being finished she folded and
laid it away and retired to her rest
Although poor, Mrs. Hall had not
always been so. ner father was at one
timo a wealthy merchant, but by vari
ous misfortunes he lost nearly all he
possessed, and dying, left his two chil
dren, Mary and Albert, almost penni
less. Shortly after his death, Mary
married Mr. Hall, and her brother
started for the gold fields of California
and although she had written numerous
letters to him she had never received
any word from him, and she had Ion
since given him up for dead.
Christmas morning dawned clear and
beautiful. Inside Jack Frost had fres
coed gorgeously the windows; while
out doors the earth was clothed in its
pure white blanket of snow. Little
Harry Hall rose early, and kindling the
Then after pladng bowg
little pine table, putting the milk to
warm m a pan on the stove, and getting
. the corn bread and salt irom the cur
board, he went to the door of his
mothers room, and knocking gently, he
-Merry Christmas, mamma! Break
fast is ready."
Breakfast ready! I wonder how many
of the children who read the Youth's
Column ever sit down to such a scanty
breakfast as that Xone. I sincerely
bope. After breakfast Mrs. Hall gave
Jaarry the sewing, who, after kissing
nis mother good-bye, started off. He
was not long in reaching Mrs. Bell's,
who paid him for the work and gave
him besides, a beautiful red apple,
which Harry put in his pocket to keep
for his mother, and then started joy
fully to the store to purchase his Christ
mas present Mrs. Bell had paid him
fifty cents, and accordingly twenty-five
cents was his. He had already made
rip his mind what he should buy. And
what do you think it was? A pair of
warm mittens for his mother. He
never once thought of himself, nor how
cold his own finders were; but he re
membered how red his mother's looked
when she came home from her errands.
As he entered the shop a gentleman
stood talking with the storekeeper; but
as Harry drew near the counter, he
ceased, while he wasbeing waited on.
Harry timidly asked if he bad any
twenty-five cent mittens. The shop
keeper said "no," but struck by the look
of disappointment on the boy's face,
"Let me see. Well, here is a pair
with a small hole in one of them, which
yeu can have for that, your mother can
easily darn it"
Harry thanked him, and handing him
t he money, went our. As he reached
the street he was startled by feeling a
hand laid on his shoulder, and turning,
saw before him the gentleman he had
left standing in the store, who putting
his hand on his head, and looking into
his eyes, said kindly:
"My lad, will you tell meyournameV
Harry answered, politely;
"My name is Harry Hall."
At the name, the gentleman started,
his hand fell from the boy's head, and
he asked hurriedly:
"Js your mother living, my child ?"
"She is, sir," answered Harry. "But my
father is dead."
The gentleman then asked Ilarrv to
lead him to his home. Harry did so,
and on the way, the gentleman told
Harry he was his long lost uncle. Mrs.
Hall wa3 watching for Harry, and was
much surprised to see with him a
stranger, but when they reached the
door, and the supposed stranger spoke,
saying "Do you not know me, Mary ?"
she needed nothing more to tell her
that it was her brother, leturned at
Surely it was a joyous Christmas for
the Halls. In the evening Harry's uncle
stated to them the story of his advent
ures. How he had never gone to Cali
fornia, but went to sea instead; how
he had written to his sister, but had
never received anything from her. And
lastly, that he had prospered, and was
rich, and that he had purchased their
dear old home, which he had found, on
visiting it, was for sale, and how he
had almost despaired of finding his sis
ter, whom chance, at last, threw in his
way. By New Year's Harry was in
his new home; and you may be sure he
did not want for presents. And he never
forgot the poor. He had tasted the cup
of poverty, and kuew its bitterness. He
would spread before them all the pock
et money given him by his uncle; and
here, with the wish that his Christmas
es may bo merry and many, we will
leave him. Cincinnati 'Times.
A 5lctch of Hie soern in IIieTlilrof Her
Frospeiiti llurke'n Eulngiuni.
Marie Antoinette's high mein in ad
versity, and the contrast between the
dazzling splendor of her first years and
the scenes of outrage and bloody death
that made the climax of her fate, could
not but strike the imaginations of men.
Such contrasts are the stuff of which
Tragedy, the gorgeous muse with
"sceptered pall," loves to weave her
most imposing raiment. But history
must be just; and the character of the
Queen had far more concern in the dis
aster of the first five years of the Revo
lution than had the character of Robes
pierre. Evrey new document that comes
to light heaps up proof tlait if blind
and obstinate choice of personal grati
Scation before the common weal be
enough to constitute a State criminal,
then the Queen of France was one of
the worst State criminals that
ever afflicted a nation. The popular
hatred of Marie Antoinette sprang
from a sound instinct. We shall never
know how much or how little truth
there is in those frightful charges
against her, that may still be read in a
thousand pamphlets. Those imputed
deparvities far surpass anything that
John Knox ever said against Mary
Staurt, or that Juvenal has recorded
against Messalina; and perhaps for the
only parallel we must look to the hid
eous stories of the Byzantine Secretary
against Theodora, the too famous Em
press of Justinian and the persecutor of
Belisarus. We have to remember that
all the revolutionary portraits are dis
torted by furious passion, and that
Marie Antoinette may no more deserve
to be compared to Mary Staurt than
Robespierre deserves to be compared to
Ezzlemo or to Alva. The aristocrats
were the libelers, if libels they were.
It is at least certain that, from the un
lucky hour when the Austrian Arch
duchess crossed the French frontier, a
childish bride of fourteen, down to the
hour when the Queen of France made
the attempt to recross it in resentful
flight, one and twenty years afterward,
Marie Antoinette wa3 ignorant un
teachable, blind to events and deaf to
good councils, a bitter grief to her
mother, the eivil genius of her hus
band, the despair of her truest advisers
and an exceedingly bad friend to the
people of Fiance.
"When Burke had that immortal vision
of her at Versailles "just above the
horizon, decorating and cheering the
elevated sphere she just began to move
in, glittering like the morning star, full
of life and splendor and joy" we know
from the correspondence between Ma
ria Theresa and her Minister at Ver
sailles, that what Burke really saw was
no divinity, but a flighty and trouble
some school-girl, an accomplice in all
the ignoble intrigues and a sharer of
all the small, busy passions that con
vulse the insects of a court The levity
that came with herLoraine blood broke
out in incredible dissipatior a, In indis
creet visits to the masked balls at the
opera, in midnight parades and mysti
fications on the terrace at Versailles, in
insensate gambling. "The court of
France is turned into a gaming hell,'
said the Emperor Joseph, the Queen's
own brother. "If they do not amend,
the revolution will be cruel." These
vices or follies were less mischievous
than her intervention in affairs of
State. Here her levity was as marked
as in the paltry affairs of the boudoir
and the ante-chamber, and here to
levity she added both dissimulation and
vindictiveness. It was the Queen's in
fluence that procured the dismissal of
the two virtuous Ministers by whose
aid the King was striving to arrest the
decay of the Government of his king
dom. Malesherbcs was distasteful to
her for no better reason than that she
wanted his post for eome favorite's fa
vorite. Against Turgot she conspired
with tenacious a'limosity, because he
hail suppressed a sinecure which she
designed for a court parasite, and be
cause he would not support her caprice
on behalf of a worthless creature of her
faction. These two admirable men
were d 'sgraced on the same day. The
Queen wrote to her mother that she
had not meddled in the affair. This
was a falsehood, for she had even
sought to have Turgot thrown into the
Bastile. "I am as one dashed to the
ground," cried the great Voltaire, now
nearing his end. "Never can we con
sole ourselves for having seen the
golden age dawn and vanish. My eyes
see only death in front of me, now
that Turgot is gone. The rest of my
dajs must be all bitterness." What
hope could there be that the personage
who had thus put out tho light of hope
for France in 1770 would welcome that
greater flame which was kindled in the
land in 17S0? When people write
hymns of pity for the Queen, we al
ways recall the poor woman whom Ar
thur Young met, as he was walking up
a hill to ease his horse, near Mars-le-Tour.
Though the unfortunate crea
ture was only twenty-eight, she might
have been taken for sixty or seventy,
her figure was so bent, her face so fur
rowed and hardened by toil. Her hus
band, she said, had a morsel of land,
one cow, and a poor little horse, yet he
had to pay forty-two pounds of wheat
and three chickens to one Seigneur, and
one hundred and sixty pounds of oats
one chicken, and one franc to another,,
besides very heavy tailles and other
taxes; and they had seven children
She had heard that "something was to
be done by some great folks for such
poor ones, but she did not know who
nor how, but God send us better, for
the tailles and the dues grind us to the
earth." It was such haple&s drudges
as this who replenished the Queen's
gaming tables at Versailles. Thou
sands of them dragged on the burden
of their harrassed and desperate days,
less like men and women than beasts
of the field, wrung and tortured and
mercilessly overladen, in order that the
Queen might gratify her childish pas
sion for diamonds, or lavish money and
estates on worthless female Polignacs
and Lainballs, or kill time at a cost of
500 louis a night at lasquenet and the
faro-bank. The Queen, it is true, was
in all this no worse than other dissipa
ted women then and since. She did
not realizo that it was the system to
which she had stubbornly committed
herself that drove the people of the
fields to cut their crop green to be baked
in the oven because their hunger could
not wait, or made them cower whole
days in their beds because their misery
seemed to gnaw them with a duller
fang. That she was unconscious of its
effect makes no difference in the real
drift of her policy; makes no difference
in the real judgment that we ought to
pass upon it, nor in the gratitude that
is owed to the stern man who rose up
to consume her and her court with
righteous flame. The Queen and the
courtiers, and the hard-faring woman
of Mars-le-Tour. and that whole gen
eration have long been dust and shadow ;
they have vanished from the earth, as
if they were no more than the lire-flies
that the peaseut of the Italian poet saw
dancing in the vineyard as he took his
evening rest on the hill side. They
have all fled back into the impenetrable
shade whence they came; our minds
are free; if social equity is not a chi
mera, Marie Antoinetts was the pro
tagonist of the most barbarous and ex
ecrable of causes. Fortnightly lie
title. The Eamous Gun Trick.
Phillip Astlcy, noted for his eques
trian amphitheatre is said to have be
gun life as a soldier, in which capacity,
when on foreign service with his regi
ment he demonstrated his ability as a
conjurer, by inventing the now famous
gun-trick. This consists in pretending
to fire a pistol loaded with a ball, and
catching the ball on the point of a
knife. The explanation of the trick is,
that in the first place the pistol is load
ed only with blank cartridge. In this
harmless condition the conjurer slips
into a tin tube which. nicely fits it,
and then ostentatiously loads it with
ball. Before firing, the tin tube is dex
terously removed, and, when the
weapon is tired, no harm ensues ; by an
instantaneous maneuver the bullet is
triumphantly exhibited as being caught
in the required situation. It is related
that Astley invented the trick to pre
vent the effusion of blood at the duel
of two comrades in the army, for one
of whom he acted as second. Succeed
ing in getting the other man's second to
assent to the ingenious device, the du
elists fired at each other without effect
and the affair was amicably adjusted.
In the course of his travels Houdin
visited Algiers, and there astonished
the native Arabs with his performance
of the gun-trick, which he did in away
somewhat peculiar. At one of his en
tertainments an old Arab admitted that
monsieur was, doubtless, a great magi
cian, but he should prefer to use one of
his own pistols. Houdin said this
might be done, next day, after he had
inveked the powers to assist him. It
was a severe trial of skill ; there was
some danger in dealing with a wary
and suspicious barbarism. Next day
the' exploit came off. Houdin only
stipulated that he should be allowed to
load the pistol, the Arab handing him
a leaden bullet from a saucerf ul from
which to make his choice. This was
agreed to. Houdin, as every one
thought dropped the leaden bullet into
the pistol, but instead of doing
so, he dropped a previously pre
pared sham bullet which dis
solved into dust on baing fired.
"Xow, said the conjurer to the Arab,
"take the pistol and fire at me; I will
catch tbe bullet in my mouth." The
pUtol was fired, and to the profound
amazement of the crowd of Arabs, I
Houdin took a leaden bullet out of bl '
mouth, which all admitted to be the.
bullet that had been selected from the !
saucerfuL To still further astonish the
company, Houdin declared that by load
ing with another leaden bill h would
bring blood out of th stone wall. All
were eager to see this wonderful feat
It was performed in a way differing
little from what ha3 taken place. In-
stead sjf dropping a real ball iuto the
pistol, Houdin used a sham bullet ailed
with red liquid, which dbsolved on
striking the wall.
'Ffcdiiux and Matrimony.
Beyond the fact that young ladies oc
casionally fish, or are alleged to fish, for
husbands, there would at first sight ap
pear to,be but little connection bc-tween
Ashing" and matrimony. Hut in some
parts ot Scotland the herring season is
equivalent to the London season as re
gards matrimonal prosjeets. If the sea
son is a dull one, weddings are few in
number, whereas when the season is
brillianfyoung couples "pare off " with
comparative briskness. This year the
failure in the herring fishery has had. it
is stated, a very depressing effect on the
matrimonial market at near)" all the
fishing stations. Tl decrease in the
marriages in the three months ending
September SO last is very conbiderable.
In the island of Lewis, with upward of
r,000 inhabitants, there were only two
marriages, and in Wick, with a popula
tion of 13.C00, the number of marriages
was only thirteen, being rather more
than half the usual total. Over the
whole of Ross and Cromarty, with
about 83.000 inhabitants, there were
only thirty marriages. The fishermen,
m short, seem to be displaying the same
kind of wiliness as the herrings. Pall
Effects of Recoil in Rifle Siiwotiiijr
It has been a question with marksmen,
says the Springfield (M.i3s.) Union,
whether the recoil of a pistol or ride
occurred before the ball left the bor
Many have contended that it did not,
and that the tendency of a pistol to
"throw up" did not effect its accuracy.
A recent experiment seems to have
shown conclus'vely that tho recoil oc
curs before the ball leaves the bore, and
does effect its direction. The experi
ment was this: A rifle barrel, twelve
inches long for convenience, was se
cured to a solid bed in such away as to
prevent any movement but that of re
coil directly to the rear or upward. In
this situation it was fired a number of
times, and the balls iollowed each other
into the same hole in the target An
incline or wedge w:is then made fast
upon the bed at the rear of tho barrel
in such away that the breech would be
raised as it slid back in the recoil. Fired
under these conditions, it sent the balls
lower than before. This shows that
the recoil and subsequent elevation of
the breech occurred in season to effect
the direction of the ball, that is before
it had left the bore. Of course the
length of the barrel has an effect in sev
eral ways upon the degree in which the
recoil effects the accuracy of the shoot
ing. Turkish Obstinacy.
As to threats they are simply thrown
away upon the Turks. They learn
nothing from the teachings of experi
ence, l ne massacres iney commuted
in Moldavia and Wallachia will not
save them these provinces. Tho whole
sale slaughter of the Servians did not
reduce that heroic little nation to sub
mission; the massacres of Chio and
Psura did not save them Greece. On
the contrary, all these things contribu
ted most powerfully to produce ex
actly the contrary effect. It was the
ferocity, the savagery displayed by the
Turks at Chio which so aroused popu
lar indignation in Europe that the
Government was at last obliged to in
terfere in behalf of Greece. It was the
devastation and depopulation of the
Peloponnesus and the savage perfidity
of Ibrahim Pasha which drove the
allied commanders to exasperation, and
resulted in the battle of Xavarino and
the destruction of the Turkish fleet.
Xor did that overwhe'ming disaster
open their eyes and teach them that the
Powera did not mean to be trifled with.
They went on defying them, until Rus
sia declared war. Nor has the loss of
Roumania,of Serviaandof Greece, the
disastrous results of these massacres,
the direct consequences of their cruelty
and ferocity; nor the stern chastise
ment of Xavarino, taught them hu
manity. Is it likely, then, that Lord
Derby's feeble threats will have any
effect upon them ? They are too igno
rant too brutal, too stupid. Of what
use for Lord Derby to threaten people
who don't even know of his existence?
Lord Derby might as well threaten a
Bengal tiger with a summons before
the Police Court Bulgarian Cor. of
the London Daily News.
A rabid coach dog bit a valuable
horse a few weeks ago in Brooklyn. The
dog was shot, and the wound which
had been inflicted on the horse's leg
healed. About six days ago the owner
of the horse, Mr. John S. Loomis called
in a veterinary surgeon. The horse be
came so violent that it was necessary
to lock it up in a broad stall. It frothed
at the mouth, and in its fury broke
pieces of thick boards off the pen. It
was impossible for any person to go
near the animal. The surgeon became
convinced that the horse bad hydro
phobia. Water was r je 'ted, and a cold
current of air passing over the back of
the beast increased the paroxysms
which mark the disease. The horse
was killed by one of the officers of the
Society for the prevention of Cruelty
to Animals on Wednesday afternoon
