T'io Song of tho Fiddler Man.
The fiddler man was old ami gray.
The fiddler man was thin ;
And bis fiddle It had a gruenome crack
All up and down ita poor old back,
Ami it let a dl.scord in.
ISut wherever he went, or wherever bo came.
The tiddler welcome was ever the Mime;
Ami tho song that ho Hang had a cheery sound
All day as be traveled his weary found
" Tin: Min may shine, iitid therulii may fall,
Hut the good Cod ruleth over all,"
Sang the llddler old and gray.
The fiddler man bad neither lands,
Xor fluckx, nor herds, nor gold ;
J l: earned what ho bad of meat aniLdi ink,
And lodging, and clothes, and a bit of chink.
With his fiddle ko cracked and old;
As up and down through each street and
I n the Miltry mm or the chilling rain,
With twanging firing, but w itli cheery i strain.
He fiddled, and .sang the old refrain:
' The huh may nhlne, and the rain may fall,
Hut tho good Cod ruleth over all.
And all are fed by Ills bands."
Tho fiddler man bad wealth untold;
Ay, Hiire be had gi eat gain;
Tor he came and bo went, as free as air.
And bis brows wore bent with no brooding
As bo trudged through c trcet and lane.
And o'er city pavements, hot and dry,
Orln grassy lanes, 'neath the open M.y,
Ah ho toiled along on his busy feet,
The children basted hlsHteps togieet.
As ho cheerily suing to the great and i-mall
Of the Cod who ruleth over all.
And whose Ioe Is better than gold.
Ah, fiddler man, the grass is green
Above the graveyard bill ;
And the fiddle t hat had miicIi a gmesonio crack
All up and down Its poor old back
Koievcr morels Mill.
Hut wheiever they name Hits llddlci'd name,
Its kindly welcome N ever the .same
In the rose-hedged lane or the clty'.s Mreet,
Where oft went Htraying his weary feet.

Of the tlddlcr'ri Ming, with Its laith innfound.

Yet tins dear Cod ruleth over all,"
So they keep his memory green.

OUT AND AT HOME.
Mr. antl Mrs. Harris were Inking tea
with their neighbors, the .Joneses, in a
friendly way. Mrs. Harris camo over
early, bringing her crochet-work, find
the ladies had a pleasant chat before the
gentlemen camo in to supper. They
were both from their business oflices,
but just as fresh aud lively as if there
was no such things as business cares,
those worrying ones which so often
darken a man's brow when ho enters
tho door of his " ain firesitle.,,
" Your husband is always so jolly
and good-natured. It must be quito a
pleasure to live with him," said Mrs.
Jones to Mrs. Harris as they went to the
" Yo-cs," answered Mrs. Harris, with
a slight hesitation, for she remembered
well, certain little things which hap
pened at home now and then.
" I'm afraid this tea is not strong
enough," remarked Mrs. Jones as she
passed Mr. Harris his cup. "Do you
find it agreeable, Mr. Harris?"
" Oh, delightful, madam!" returned
Mr. Harris, with a bland smile. "Strong
tea is hurtful to the nerves, and keeps
one awake at night, I think."
" This won't, at all events," thought
Mrs. Harris, as she sipped tho tasteless
fluid in her cup.
" Have a bit more of the steak, Har
ris," said Mr. Jones. " Mollie, seems
to me this is a little scorched."
" Yes, it is," admitted Mrs. Jones,
" I did not have very good luck with it
this time. I'm very sorry, too."
" Oh, it's very nice very nice, in
deed ! " returned cordial Mr. Harris. I
think I will take another bit, Jones. If
there is any thing I like, it is steak just
a bit scorched. Thank you; no more
of the gravy. These arc very fine bis
cuits, Mrs. Jones. I believe I must
send my wife over to take lessons of
you in cooking."
Mrs. Harris looked up in some sur
prise, and blushed a little, but did not
say a word.
She knew she was a better cook than
Mrs. Jones, and at home Mr. Harris
was uot'accustomcd to be so very po
lite. Mrs. Jones was greatly flattered
" You're very good, I'm sure," she
simpered. " I can generally cook ; but
it seems to me I always have the very
worst luck when I have company."
Mrs. Harris thought Mrs. Jones had
mot with bad luck this time. The cake
was heavy and the preserves had sour
ed ; but Mr. Harris praised every thing
and declared he had enjoyed his supper
If ho would only be as pleasant as
that at homolj" sighed little Mrs. Har
ris as she walked through the street
with her husband after they had taken
leave of their friends. But she knew
it would be useless to say a word.
Coaxing would be lost in this case, and
scolding never accomplished any thing.
However, her woman's wit set to work
to find some way tc teach that husband
of hers a lesson, and after a while the
way was found.
The next evening supper was ready
when Mr. Harris came home, and was
just as near as could be a counterpart of
the supper at Jones's the night before.
Weak tea, scorched beefsteak, biscuit
only moderate, heavy cake and sour
preserves. But Mrs. Harris was all
calm and serenely unconscious.
Come Mamie, lieorgie, supper is
xeady and papa has come," she said,
calling the two children, who came
bounding in from their play.
.IHope you got somethin' good. I'm
audience, and a$jfuigry," Master George ex-
claimed, while gcntlo little Mamie an
swered him :
I'so 'shamed of you, Georgic! Mam
ma's suppers is always good." Mam
ma said nothing, only poured papa a
cup of tea.
"Humph! is this tea or dishwater?"
was his remark as ho tasted it.
You told Mrs. Jones strong tea hurt
you," said Mrs. Harris, quietly.
" Urn well jes, I did!" said Mr.
Harris, taken somewhat aback, "but I
didn't mean such weak stuff as this.
The steak is burned, too. It isn't fit to
cat such trash!"
" You told Mrs. Jones you were fond
of scorched meat," remarket! Mrs.Har
ris, as quietly as before.
Mr. Harris colored.
" Well but I not as black as this,
though. Haven't you got any lieht
bread? These biscuits are not as good
Mrs. Harris brought a slice of bread
and laid it beside his plate. He took it
without saying a word.
"Why, ma, what ails your cake?"
asked (Jeorgic, as he took a bite of a
"It's heavy as lcad.itbat's what's the
matter with it!" snapped Mr. Harris.
" You said Mrs. Jones's cake was de
lightful, and it was no better than this,"
responded his wife, in tone perfectly
even and unruffled.
Oh, pshaw!" ejaculated Mr. Harris.
" I tlon't like to cat such stuff at home,
anyhow. And seems to me these pre
serves don't taste just right. I believe
they are soured."
" I believe thoy are a little," returned
Mrs. Harris, coolly.
"What did you put them on for,
then? I think this is a delightful meal,
I do not a thing that is fit to eat!"
" I'm sorry if I didn't please you. I
tried to, especially," said Mrs. Harris,
as coolly as before.
" Yes. You saitl "you were going to
send me over to take lessons in cooking
of Mrs. Jones. I took them at home,
that's all. But I don't seem to succeed
as well as she did."
" What on earth do you mean, Sue?"
" Don't you sco? If you will think
3ou will sec that I have given you to
night just about what she gave us last
night. But then, you remember, you
praised every thing until Mrs. Jones was
"Bosh, Sue! Don't you know that
was all for tho sako of politeness?"
" Oh, was it? Well, then wo arc to
teach our children that politeness is only
for company use, antl not necessary at
" Why, no, of course not."
"Then, if not, isn't it just as impor
tant to wear asmilo and a kind face, and
try to excuse little accidents at home,
as when we aro visiting? And if wo
don't grumblo all tho time wo aro among
those who arc mere strangers, have wo
a right to niako those wo love best
miserable by doing so all the time at
Mr. Harris wasn't going to own that
ho was beaten. What man would?
But ho camo round to his wife's chair
and gave her a kiss, a thing a little un
usual itself mucc his lover-days were
over, and said :
" You're a first-rate little preacher,
Sue. I'll lend you to tho church next
year." And oil he went.
But the lesson was not lost, for Mrs.
Sue, who feared that perhaps she had
said too much, and done harm instead
of good, heard far less grumbling, and
got many more smiles at homo as the
days went on, anil if Mr. Harris seemed
disposed to fall into his old
would only say, archly :
" Hadn't we better tako tea with the
Joneses again?" and he was on his
guard at onco.
'I here are very many more Mr. Har
rises at home who might do well to lay
the lesson to heart also.
Let us humbly hope they will.
Boston and Chicago.
Apropos of tho recent visit of the
Chicago Commercial Club to Boston
where by the way they wcro most hos
pitably entertained a Boston man
(Causeur of tho Transcript) tells the
following little story :
"A many years ago" two young men,
John and James, Boston boys both,
wero fellow-clerks on Kilby Street.
.John went to Chicago in its muddy
days, prospered, married, raised a fam
ily, and, ere his hair was gray, became
a well-to-do, substantial citizen, open
handed and open-hearted. James re
mained at home. He, too, prospered,
married, raised a family, and became
one of the "solid men of Boston."
Now, it fell out that when John's eldest
son they called him Jack was 21, ho
visited Boston, bearing a letter to his
father's old friend, whom he foand in a
dingy Tearl Street counting-room, deep
in the Advertiser. Jack presented the
letter, and stood, hat in hand, while the
old gentleman read it twice. "So you're
John's son?" he said. "You don't
look a bit like your father." Then
there was a pause, Jack still standing.
"What brought you to Boston?"
he was asked. " Well, sir," said
Jack, " father thought I'd better seo his
old home and get a tasto of salt air."
"Going to be here over Sunday?"
"Yes, sir," "My pew is No at
Trinity. Hope to see you there. Glad
to have met you." And there tho in
terview ended. Now it chanced that,
not long after, James's son, roving
through the West, reached Chicago.
He remembered his father's friend by
name, and hunted him up in his office.
" Well, my son," said a pleasant voice,
before he had closed the door. " Mv
name is James , sir, and I thought
" " What? You don't mean to say
that . Of course you are. I might
have known it. Where's your bag
gage?" "At the hotel, sir." "We'll
go and get it, and take it right up to the
house," answered the.genial old gentle-
man, closing nis aesK witn a vigorous
slam. " We'll go right up now. There's
plenty of time for a drive, this after
noon. This evening you can go to the
theater with my girls, and to-morrow
you and I will take a run out on the C,
B. & Q., and have a look at the coun
try. Then I want to take you out to
the Stock-Yards, and I have a trip on
the lake, and " "But, sir," broke
in the overwhelmed young man, "I
must go home to-morrow." " Tut, tut,
my boy, don't talk that way. You
can't begin to see this city underaweek,
and you're going to stay that long any
how." He did. In fact, he's there
CAKE OF THE HEALTH
Advice rou. Hot Weather. Keep

Si'Kaims asd Bkcikes. Parsnip tops
beaten to a pulp and welted with vine
gar are a good application; also brant
or clay, or brown paper, made wet with
vinegar. But for sprains or bruises the
best direction that can be given is to
wrap the part with a soft cloth in many
folds, and keep it constantly wet with
water as warm as the patient can bear
it. This treatment should be kept up
for an hour or two at a time.
Blisters. If you wish a blister to
heal quickly, be careful not to remove
the skin. On infants this should be ob
served. The first dressing should be
lily or cabbage leaves coddled in boil
ing water. Then a salve made thus :
one part wax, one part lard, one part
turpentine from the pine-tree; melt and
strain. Itesin is sometimes used instead
of turpentine. This make3 basilicon.
If the part blistered be in a situation apt
to bo rubbed, cover with cotton bats, as
in tho case of a burn, especially if the
patient be an infant.
Si si i'le Treatment rou Sciatica.
Dr. Kbrard of Nimes states that he has
for many years treated all his cases of
sciatica and neuralgia pains with an
improvised electric apparatus, consist
ing merely of a flit-iron and vinegar,
two things that will bo found in every
hou3e. The iron is heated until suffi
ciently hot to vaporize tho vinegar, antl
is then covered with some woolen fab
ric, which is moistened with vinegar,
and the apparatus is applied at once to
the painful spot. Tho application may
bo repeated two or three times a day.
As a rule, tho pain disappears in 21
hours, and recovery ensues at once.
Boils. Thc30 painful and trouble
some things may sometimes bo prevent
ed by wetting a stick of caustic at one
end and making a circle roimd tho in
flamed part. If it will rise, apply warm
flax-seed or mush anil fat poultices, and
as soon as it is soft open with a lancet
or dress witn basilicon. If the boil is
a hard tumor with a hard speck in the
middle, which, when opened, shows a
greenish coro, it is a carbuncle, anil
should have a blister put entirely over
it. In fact, all boils which arc too slow
to rise arc best treated by being blistor
cd, which is less painful than would be
Kkfkcts of Hicii Living. A cor
respondent of iho London Builder,
while acknowledging the services of that
journal in tho cause of sanitary reform,
contends that " the health of stable
keepers, of sewer explorers, the exemp
tion of the inhabitants of the Ghetto
during tho cholera in Rome," proves,
in his opinion, that tho cause of epi
demics lies more in tho mistreatment of
human life than in all external mischief
put together, and attributes a great deal
of tho illness among the wealthier
classes to their over-eating and drink
ing, just as, on the other hand, much
of that among the poorest is the fruit of
privation. " People of means live to
tho top' every day ; consequently there
is no reserve force, for this has been all
consumed in endeavoring to surmount
the weight of difliculties daily present
ed." London men-servants have four
aud sometimes five meals three of
meat daily, and the hospital doctors
say that their blood is so heated by high
living that they arc very difficult patients

Petroleum as a Remeut for Con
sumption. The scenes which are daily
witnessed at the oil works at Point Breeze,
to which numbers of consumptives re
sort in order to inhale the vapors from
tho stills and obtain crude oil for inter
nal application, have their counterpart
over m France. A Government report,
recently published in the Bulletin de
Thcrapeulique, narrates that a refiner of
petroleum was prohibited by a Prefect
from distributing petroleum in medic
inal doses. Some of the sufferers ap
pealed, and the Government ordered
Dr. Blache, a prominent medical prac
titiouer, to institute an investigation as
to tho utility of petroleum in affections
of tho chest. Native petroleum from
Pennsylvania and Virginia was experi
mented with. Dr. Blache, in his report,
stated that he found that, in chronic
bronchitis with abundant expectoration,
it rapidly diminished the amount of the
secretion and the paroxysms of cough
ing; while in simple bronchitis rapid
amelioration was obtained. Its em
ployment in phthisis was continued for
too short a time to warrant any opinion
regarding its efficiency, beyond that it
is diminishing tho expectoration, which
also lost its purulent character. Dr.
blache says that the petroleum is pop
ularly taken in doses of a tcaspoonful
before each meal, and that after the
first day any nausea which it excites in
most persons disappears. Philadelj hia

it was jolly! In a brief year the mine
petered out, and silence reigned in Bo

spirit-land were borne on the midnight

losses drove them to suicide. Now,
again, Gabriel's trump proclaims salva
