THE IIAIJ.A TKI OVEI.
It was iu the days of our grand
mothers, when there were brick
ovens in the land, that Mr. Hubbard
bought his house, and bought it
very much against his wife's will. It
was a lonely house, and reported to
be haunted: It was next to a grave
yard, which, although unused, was
not cheerful, and which, likewise,
had tho reputation of a ghost. How
ever, Mr. Hubbard did not believe
in ghosts, and was too cheerful to be
depressed by warnings, and never
intended to be lonely.
'Sirs. Hubbard he said, when his
wife shook her head over the pur
chase, 'I got it cheap, and it is a good
one. You will like it when you get
there ; if you dou't, why, then talk.'
So the house was bought, and into
it the Hubbard family went. There
was scarcely a chanco for a ghost to
show his face amid such a family of
boys and girl9. Mr. and Mrs. Hub
bard counted ten of them, all uoisy
Having once expostulated and
spoken out her mind as to tho house,
Mrs. Hubbard gave up the point.
She scrubbed and scoured, tacked
down carpets, and put up curtains,
and owned that the place was pretty.
As not a ghost appeared for a
week, she made up her mind that
there were no such inhabitants. She
even begun not to mind the tomb
stones. So tho house got to rights
at last, and baking day camo about.
In the press of business thoy had a
great deal of baker's bread, and
were now tired of it. Mrs. Hubbard
never enjoyed setting a batch of
bread to rise as she did that which
was to bo eaten for the first timo in
the new house.
For I caunot get up an appetite
for stuff that nobody knows who had
the making of,' said Mrs. Hubbard,
'and all puffy and almy besides.'
So into the oven went the bread,
and out it came at the proper time,
even and brown, and beautiful as
loaves could be. Mrs. Hubbard
turned them up on their sides as she
drew them forth, and they stood in
tho long bread-tray, glorious proofs
of her skill and the excellence of tho
oven, when Tommy Hubbard hound
Tommy was 4, and when at that
age, we are prone to believe that
anything will bear our weight.
Tommy, therefore, anxious to in
spect the newly-made bread, swung
himself off his feet by clutching the
bread-tray, aud over it camo, loaves
and Tommy and all.
Mrs. Hubbard flew to tho roscue,
and picked up the loaves. All were
dusted and put in the tray again but
ono. That lay, bottom upward,
under the table.
'A bothering child to give me so
much trouble !' she said as sho crawl
ed under tho table to get it. 'Ah
O ah dear, sister oh O my '
And thero on the floor sat Mrs.
Hubbard, screaming, wringing her
hands, and shaking her head. The
children screamed in concert. Mr.
Hubbard rushed in from where he
was at work.
'What's the matter, mother?' he
Mrs. Hubbard pointed to tho bot
bot of the loaf lying in her lap.
'Look thore and see !' she said. 'It
is a warning, "William ; I am going
to bo taken from them all.'
And he looked; and he saw a
deaths-bead and cross-bones, as
plainly engraved as they possibly
'It is accident, said Mr. Hubbard.
'Some queer cranks do come, you
But Mrs. Hubbard was in a troub
led state of mind, as was but natural.
'The stories about the haunted
house were true,' she said ; 'and the
spirits have marked the loaf. I am
afraid it 1b a warning.'
And the loaf was put aside, for
even Mr. Hubbard did not dare to
cat any of it.
Mrs. Hnbbard got over her fright
at last, but the news of tho awfully
marked loaf spread through II ,
and the people came to Hubbard's
all the week to look at it. It was a
death's-head and cross-bones, cer
tainly every one saw that at a
glance ; but as to its meaning, people
differed. Some believed that it was
a warning of approaching death;
others thought that the spirits want
ed to frighten the Hubbard's away,
and get possession of the house
again all to themselves.
This latter supposition inspired
Mrs. Hubbard with courage. Fi
nally, being a -brave woman, she
adopted the belief; and, when an
other baking day arrived, put her
loaves into the oven once more,
prepared for cross-bones and not to
bo frightened by them.
The loaves baked as before. They
came out brown and crusty as Mrs.
Hubbard turned each in her hands.
There were no cross-bones visible,
but on the last were sundry charac
ters of letters. What, no one could
tell, until there dropped in for chat
a certain printer of the neighbor
hood, accustomed to reading things
'By George!' said he, 'that is curi
ous. That is curious r-e-s-u-r-g-a-m
that is what is on the loaf ro
surgam.' 'It is what they put on tombs,
isn't it?' asked poor Mrs. Hubbard,
Well, yes, said Mr. Hubbard,
being obliged to admit it. 'But it is
not so bad as cross-bones and skulls.'
Mrs. Hubbard shook her head.
'It's even solomnlcr,'said the little
woman, who was not as good a lin
guist as brcadmaker. I feel confi
dent, William, that I shall soon be
resurgamed, and what will these
dear children do then ?'
Aud now that the second loaf was
bofore her eyes, marked even more
awfully than tho first, Mrs. Hubbard
grew really pale and thiu, and lost
'I have a presentment,' she said,
over and over again, 'that tho third
baking will decide who the warniug
belongs to. I believe it is meant for
me, and time will show. Don't you
see how thin I am growing?'
And though Mr. Hubbard laugh
ed, he also began to be troubled.
The third baking-day was one of
gloom. Solemnly, as a funeral, the
family assembled to assist in the
Fivo loaves came out marklcss;
but one remained.
MrB. Hubbard's hand trembled,
but she drew it forth. She laid it
on the tray. She turned softly about.
At last she exposed tho lower sur
face. On it were letters printed
backward, plain enough to read this
time, and arranged thus:
Died April 2d,
her large family.
'It is me !' cried Mrs. Hubbard. 'I
am to go to-morrow this is the 1st.
I do feel faint yes, I do. It is
awful, aud so sudden ?'
And Mrs. Hnbbard fainted away
in the arms of the most terrified of
men and husbands.
The children screamed; tho cat
mewed ; tho dog barked. The old
est boy ran for the doctor. People
flocked to tho Hubbard's. Tho loaf
was examined. Yes, there was Mrs.
Hubbard's warning her call to quit
She lay in bed, bidding good-by
to her family and friends, her
strength going fast. She read her
Bible, and tried not to grieve too
much. The doctor shook his head.
The clergymau prayed with her.
Nobody doubted that her end was at
hand, for people were very super
stitious in those days.
They had been up all night with
good Mrs. Hubbard, and dawn was
breaking, aud with it she was sure
that she must go, when clattering
over tho road and up to the door
came a horse, and on the horse came
a man, who alighted. He rattled
the knocker and rushed in. There
was no stopping him. Up the stairs
he went to Mrs. Hubbard's room,
and bolted into it.
Everyono Btared at him as he took
off his hat.
Tarding,' said he, breathlessly ; 'I
heard Mrs. Hubbard was a-dying,
and she'd warnings on her bakiugs.
I came oyer to explain. You seo, I
was sexton of the church here a few
years ago-, and I know all about it.
You needn't dieof fear just yet,
Mrs. Hnbbard, for it is neither
spirits nor demons about, nor yet
warnin's. What marks the loaves is
old Mrs. Finklo's tombstono. I took
it for an oven bottom, seeing there
were no survivors, and bricks were
dear. The last folks before you
didn't get them printed off on their
loaves, because they used tins ; and
we got used to tho marks ourselves.
Crossbones and skulls wo put up
with, and never thought of caring
for the resnrgam. So you bcc how
it is, and I am sorry you've been
Nobody said a word. Tho min
ister shut his book. The doctor
walked to the window. There was
a deadly silence. Mrs. Hubbard
sat up iu bed.
'William !' said sho to her husband,
'the first thing you do, get a new
bottom to that oven.'
Aud the tone assured tho assem
blage of anxious friends that Mrs.
Hubbard was not going to die
Indeed, she came down the next
day. And when the oven had beeu
reconstructed, the first thing she did
was to give invitations for a large
tea-drinking on which occasion the
loaves came out all right.
A Leadville man fell over a bluff,
and if he hadn't been drunk ho
would have been killed, and if he
hadn't been drunk he'wouldn't have
fallen over the bluff. You can make
the occurrence point whichever
moral you choose.
TUT? .HiDGlIE T DAY.
It is Rolling Round Some old Proph
eciesA Grand Picnic Predicted
for 1881 "The Gospel Train
is Comin', Git on. Board,
Git on Board."
The old prophets and seers seem
to have beou determined to hustle
this little mundane sphere of ours
out of existence in 1SS1 regardless
of the change of circumstances such
an event might bring to the business
interest of tho country. Thoy were
wont to prophesy and prophesy, and
foretell importaut events that took
place in startling coincidence with
their prophecies. It seems strange,
therefore, that all tho wonders fore
told by any of them cease in the
year 1S81. Mother Shipton may
have given the cue to those who
came after her, in her prophetic
rhyme, which every few years gets
into print afresh and goes the rounds
of almost tho entire press. After
for telling many important evonts
which subsequent developments
proved to l)c correct, sho winds up
her little composition with the start
ling piece of information that
"The world to an end shall come
In eighteen mind rod and eighty-one."
In view of her correctness in the
past, all we can do is to tremblingly
await the denoumeut In 1SS1.
Numerous other prophecies on a
small scale havo ventilated their
ideas on the subject, but all seem to
find an effective barrier to the farth
er penetration of their visions into
futurity. But now, as if we had not
been shaken up enough, up comes
the ghost of an old prophecy writton
by Mrs. Abby Marsh, at her home
in Sherbrook, Canada, 1787. Like
that of Mother Shipton, it is writton
in verse, and is now in tho oiiginal
on a dilapidated piece of parchment,
in the possession of Dr. Albert
Marsh of Brooklyn. It had faded
almost out of existence, but ono of
those prying reporters found it out
and brought it to light and started it
on a mission of scaring poor human
ity. And, by-the-way, wo earnestly
advise all such, in their own inter
est, to be very, very good hereafter.
To tho rising generation of young
men and womon we would say, sail
in ; have all tho fun you can for tho
next two years, then move out in
the country, go west, or take to the
woods. We give tho prophecy with
a few explanatory remarks. Thus
Columbia, home of Iibertie,
Shall not twenty rulers see,
Ere there shall seem to be smoke,
Ere peace shall seem to be broke,
And in waves of peril tost
Tho ancient order shall be deemed lost.
It is a significant fact, when taken
in this connection, that R. B. Haye9
is nineteenth rulor of the United
States, as will be seen by the order
in which the presidents succeed
The first shall, too, the second be
If the Fates tell Truth as even he;
Where sits the sire as sits the son,
Rut not the son's son.
Aud ere the son shall ruler be
One place shall send three;
Three with one shall make her four (4),
And there shall be uo more.
Reference is undoubtedly made to
General Washington's proverbial
truth-telling, in the second line, and
to the succession of John Quincy
Adams to the place of his father in
the third. "But not his son's son,"
seems to point to Mr. Charles Fran
cis Adams, who has uniformly failed
in his aspirations to become presi
dent. Between the Adamses did
come three from "one placo" (Vir
ginia), who with the accidental John
Tyler made the fourth ; nor has the
"Mother of Presidents" since born a
son distinguished by even a nomina
tion to the chief magistracy.
The first sprung from these fecund loins
In death his predecessor joins;
Who beneath his son shall pass
And in a house that diu'erent was.
The next one shall have peace aud war;
The third shall brook no kingly star;
When the quarter century's run,
Wbere sat tho sire shall sit the son.
It is difficult to interpret a portion
of this extract. Jefferson and John
Adams, it is woll known, died on
the 4th of July, 1820, their simul
taneous death forming one of the
most remarkable coincidences in
history; but the meaning of the
clause, "And in a house that differ
ent was," is rather vague. The ven
erable ex-president died on tho floor
of the capitol, but the latter building
was part of the original one erected
at the seat of government. Mr.
Madison's administration witnessed
both the war with England and the
period of peace and prosperity that
followed it; while the quarter cen
tury, reckoning from 1800, saw the
inaugural ceremonies of the younger
Then comes who should have been be
fore, A soldier who shall not have any war.
"Old Hickory's" record seems to
bear this out, especially the last line.
The vigorous manner iu which he
"sal down" upon the Nullifiers of
that day, "deferred," so Mr. Ban
croft says, "the approaching civil
war for many years." The prophe
cy continues :
(1,2) After the fox the lion ahall
Be lordly ruler over all;
But death shall in the mansion
Sword surer than on the tented
(3) Afer him there comes anon,
One who has friends, but shall havo
(4) The hickory shall sprout again;
A soldier come from battle plain,
Rut shall not long remain,
3'or shall his heir bear sway again.
(5) Then a vouth shall follow, who (sic)
All shall know though none knew.
Taken in their successive order
the above ought to apply first to
Martin "Van Buren(but why should
he be called a fox?) ; second to Har
rison, who died almost immediately
after his inaugurationj third, to
Tyler, whoso conduct caused n rup
turo in his party; fourthto Polk,
who was popularly known as
"Young Hickory," and fifth, to
Franklin Pierce, the yonugest up to
that timo, and whose selection was
a surprise to everybody.
While the next probably Buchanan to
bear the rule, .
To-morrow's sage is this day's fool;
North and South and East and West,
The strong man shall the weak defend,
But it Khali not be the end;
Under the next Lincoln widows shall
Thousands be slain, but millions born,
Death, in the strife, shall pas him by.
But when the peace cometh he shall die.
A soldier aftor him shall be
Who shall see his century.
The horo of Appomattax is here
undoubtedly referred to, and the
centennial celebration at Philadel
phia. But the most remarkable part
of this prophecy is the following:
Rule afterwards shall he got
By the one who-e it was not;
Men shall roar, and rage, and rave.
But he shall have who should not have.
When the tide of storm is o'er
Four shall make ft and not 4.
lie who shall be no more,
And all that's past not make a score.
This will seem almost incredible
to many, but it is proved beyond
doubt that the lines were in exist
ence, and in one instance published,
before Grant lett the executive chair.
Mr. Hayes is tho nineteenth presi
dent; there ha3 been "battle smoke"
enough, in a political sense, when it
is taken into consideration the re
cent electoral frauds. Can the last
two lines by any possibility refer to
the sage of Gramraercy park.
But Columbia shall again
Rise, and fairer be than the sic
Brother shall with brother speak
Whom he hath not seen a week;
Letters shall go 'ueath the deep.
Likewise over mountain steep;
Men shall speak to brazen ears,
That shall be mouths in after years,
Words spoken shall be sent thro' post,
So no syllable be lost:
A drop of water shall have then
The force of many thousand men.
It does not take a very fanciful
imagination to draw from the above
a clear indication of Prof. Edison's
numerous wonders of invention.
The alleged motor of Mr. Keely, the
Philadelphia mechanic, claims to
utilize a drop of water with such
effect that thousands of pouuds
pressure aro obtained.
The conclusion, which looks very
much like the timo when "two Sun
days meet" or "to-morrow comes
never," runs as follows :
All these things shall happen when?
They shall happen not before
Six years shall be reckoned four,
Thirteen shall be thirty-nine;
This shall be a certain 'sign ;
Nine and eight reversing take,
(Eight and one the ninAshall make.)
When ninety-two are eighty-one,
All these marvels shall be done.
A singular explanation of this ap
parently unmeaning riddle has been
suggested by a mathematician nam
ed TownBend. "When ninety-two
are eighty-one. "Washington took
bis scat as president iu 1789; add
ninety-two and you have eighty-ouc
(1881). This 1881 is also made up
of ones and eights, forming nines in
reversed order. The "thirteen" may
be taken as alluding to tho original
numbor of states, which the rhymer
(remember that she is stated to have
written in 1780, not in 1812 or 1813
would have in her mind. The re
cent introduction of a bill into Con
gress proposing a constitutional
amendment to extend the term of
the executive to six years may cover
Six years shall be reckoned four.
Mr. Marsh considers the document
as genuine, and is able to produce a
copy of the Green Mountain Vt.
Chronicle, published in 1813, which
contains an almost verbatim copy.
Now we anxiously await the opin

A very handsome perforated lamp
shade can be made thus: Cut the
shades of white cardboard (an old
shade serving for pattern); after
getting a truo shape lay it upon a
smooth lapboard; then at regular
intervals place some pretty pattern ;
use embroidery patterns ; then with
a good -sized needle prick the whole
design before removing the pattern;
then make up with the rough side
out. Paste them in shape, then wire
aud bind the edges with glazed
paper, cut quite narrow and pinked
on each edgo. "When placed upon
the lamp, every part of tho design
Scvoral weeks ago fivo of tho
daughters of Brigbam Yonng, late
head of the Mormon church, wero
expelled from tho church for tho
crime of having gone to law with
certain of the brethren who attempt
ed to rob them. Afterward tho
elders, wishiug to make peace with
the expelled litigants, sent a couplo
of 'teachers' to intorview them.
Thoy repaired to the residence of
Miss Dora Young. "What occurred
thero is told by tho Salt Lake Trib
une as follows :
'We want to see, sister Dora, if
you will not como back to mJ
'I have received a note cal Hug on
me to appear to answor a charge;
what would you do?'
'Oh,' replied Brother Morris, 'I
should go by all means by all
'But I won't do that,' replied tha
heiress, 'not for tho world.'
'Oh, come now, sistor Dora, don't
say that. If you havo dono anything
wrong it will be forgiven.'
Yes, but I haven't done anything
wrong. What have I done?'
'You had a suit with your breth
ren, didn't you?'
'Yes. and I wish to gracious I bad
'What, with the brethren ?'
'Yes, with the brethren.'
Don't say that, sister Dora; wo
don't want to hurt your feelings,
'And I don't want you to hurt my
feelings. If you do you'll go out of
my house a good deal Hvolier than
you came iu. I havo stood just as
much from the Mormons as I intend
to bear, and if you two offend mo in
any way you will go out of that door
which a carpenter put there for just
Oh, we don't want to hurt '
'Well, then, don't ask me to return
to tho church ; you can't insult mo
worse than by requesting that.'
'Sister Dora, think of your father
and mother, and '
'Don't speak to me of my father,
Mr. Morris,' she interrupted. 'You
and the whole church know that my
father, prophet though you call him,
broke many a woman's heart. If it
were required of me to break as
many hearts and ruin as many
women a3 my fathor did, I should
go to perdition before I would go
back iuto tho church, and'
Oh, sister Dora!' exclaimod tho
'It's a fact, and you know it's a
fact. You know that many of his
wives died of broken hearts, and
how did he leave the rest ? Look at
my mother and look at the reat of
them. A religion which breaks
women's hearts and ruins them is of
tho devil. That's what Mormonlsm
does. Don't talk to mo of my father ;
I'll tell yon one thing: if my mother
woreJiving at present you wouldn't
dare"! do what you are doing now.
You wouldn't have stolen our mon
ey from us, either. You profess to
regard my father as a prophet, and
yet you have John Taylor standing
in my father's shoes when you know
he was tho worst enemy my father
had on earth. And around him are
gathered thoso bravo apostles all
swearing against father, while in his
lifetime they couldn't be servile
enough. Thoy are bravo now.'
The teachers were dumbfounded
at the honest girl's estimate of her
father, Brigham Young, and said
Young man, when yon see any
thing you want, ask for it like a
man. If yon want to borrow fivo
dollars of a man, or If you only want
to marry his daughter, don't slide
up to him aud bang on to your hat
and talk politic and religion and
the weather, and tell old stale jokes
whereof you can't remember tho
point, until you worry the old roan
into a state of nervous irritation.
Go to him with a full head of steam
on and your bow ports open, like an
ironclad pulling for a shore battery.
Snort and paw and shake your head
if you feel like it, no matter if it
docs make him astonished. Better
astonish him than bore him. Go in
to his heart or pocketbook, or both
it amounts to the same thing like
a brindle bull with a curl in his
forehead charging a red merino
dress, eyes on fire, tail up and dust
a-flying. Then you'll fetch him. Or
possibly he may fetch you. But
never mind; you'll accomplish
something, and show you are not
afraid to speak what's on yonr
mind. And that's a great deal more
than you would accomplish by the
other method. You needn't be
cheeky, but yon ought to be straight
forward. Evanscille A rgus.
Of and from tho people, by sheer
force of brain and fiber, Garfield has
