BOBBERY AND ME.
It's just a bit of a story, sir, that
dou't sound much to strangers, but I'd
like to tell you about it, if you bare
time to listen, for they've all forgotten
Bobbery down here, except mo; they're
poor folks, you see, and things drift out
of folks' heads when poverty drifts in.
Bobbery? Yes, sir, that was his name
leastways the name we gave him
down here. As to a father or mother,
we never had any, I think; never had
any one in the wide world to belong to
except our two selves Bobbery and me.
I was the eldest two long years older
thau him; but then I was blind, you
see, so the two years didn't count for
much, and Bobbery got ahead of me
after the time when the long days of
pain slipped into lone night, and God
shut me out of the world not that I
grumble, sir; I've given over that and
Bobbery was always such a good lad to
me that perhaps I didn't miss so much
I grew to fancy things and make be
lieve I saw a great deal, particularly
after Bobbery took to working at his
trade shoe-black, sir; and sometimes,
when I became accustomed to being
always in the dark, I went out with
Bobbery and held the money that he
Well, not much, perhaps, but enough
for us two. and the little room we had
down at Kingston, over against the
river; only Bobbery was an extravagant
lad not in drink, sir; we were always
a sober lot but in oranges.
They were almost his ruin, sir those
oranges. He used to come up-stairs
sucking them softly, so that I might not
hear, and thinking to deceive mo; but
I somehow smelt oranges, and it always
made me sharper to catch Bobbery
whistling little tunes to himself on the
way up, just to put me out
He made a great deal of me, did Bob

and so did the neighbors; but I was
rare proud of him. You don't know
what it is. sir, to sit alone in the dark
all day, and then, on a sudden, to hear
a fellow call out, "Here we are again!
Come down and feel the sun set, and
we'll count the coppers." It would
make you love any one, sir, who had a
voice like that, let alone a fellow like
Perhaps you didn't happen to be in
Kingston, sir, last spring, when the
floods had risen and the land was un
der water for miles around. Bobbery
had to wade a little going down to his
work, but ho rather liked it ho said;
and he used to tuck up his trousers and
call back to me and laugh as the water
crept arouud his feet; and he said folks
wouldn't want their boots blacked, he
feared, for the water would soon take
off the polish.
I used to sit on the window-sill to
feel the sun, and if I listened very bard
I could hear tbe ripple-ripple of the
shallow water at every step that Bob
bery made, and it had a pleasant sound,
and made a kind of company feeling;
bat when he was out of hearing and it
till kept rippling up against our walls
the company feeiing went away and
left me lonely, and sometimes I thought
the water hateful, because it lay for so
very long between me and Bobbery.
Well, once 1 was sitting alone on the
window-sill and the day was very quiet,
so quiet that I did not hear the little
rippling waves; and in tbe quiet I grew
frightened at last, and stretched out my
hands across the sill to feel my way
down. I felt something that made me
shiver and draw back out of the sun
lightthat made my whole dark life
Sow suddenly a beautiful and precious
ing I felt the water rippling almost
up to the level of the sill, and I was
quite alone, and Bobbery would never
I did not call out or go mad with
fright, as I thought at first 1 might do;
only I crept away in my everlasting
darkness from the warm sunlight and
sat down on the bed where Bobbery and
I slept together, and put my hands over
my ears to shut out the roar of the wa
ters. How long I sat there I don't know, but
I think it must have been for hours, for
I felt the sunlight on my face and the
waters rushing around me before I
moved again. 1 was hungry, too, but
when I tried to get down and reach the
cupboard the water took me off my feet
and 1 crept back to the bed and ou to
the shelves of the dresser to be out of
the way. I said my prayers two or
three times, and I said some prayers for
Bobbery, too, for 1 knew he would be
sorry when he found me some day where
I had died all alone, and in tbe dark.
And then I tried to think how things
looked from our windows, with the wa
ter sweeping up to the very sill, and the
red sunset lying on it and beyond
the pretty town and the steeple in the
clock; and I thought it was better for
me to die than Bobbery, after all. for
he could see, while I I had no pleas
ures in my life. And yet I wanted to
live; I wanted to hear Bobbery's voice
again; I wanted the waters to go down
and somebody to remember me at last
for I was afraid.
Well, sir, God answers our prayers
ome'Jmes in a way that is terribly just
It takes us a long time to find out that
everything is very good. I think, but
we come to learn it at last and learn,
too, to leave our prayers as well as the
answers to God. Somebody did remem
ber me at last, and came back some
body whose laughing voice across the
waters was nearer every minute some
body whose hands were on my shoul
ders, whose eyes. I felt, were on my
face somebody who had never forgot
ten me Bobbery!
'Bobbery! Bobbery!" I cried, and
I stretched out my arms to him.
Bobbery said: "I came over in a.
tab only think! such a lark! bat as I
climbed it at the window oar tab drift
ed away, and however we're to get over
J can't tell."
"You must think of something," I
said. "Bobbery, it was a long day."
"Why, of course it was." Bobbery an
swered, "without me. Come along, the
river's rising like fury."
"li it very wide?" I asked.
"O, not more'n a good stretch from
here to the dry land, but deep, over six
feet, I should say. and rising."
"But the bed. Bobbery," 1 said, "and
the other things."
"Well, we must just leave them until
it's all right again."
"Will it ever be all right?" I asked.
"Why, yes, of course, snid Bobbery.
He was such a splendid chap, sir, was
Bobbery, and so clever! He took the
two chairs that were drifting about tbe
room and tied them close together, and
then we waded across to the window
and stood upon the silL
"I think it's jolly good fun," said
Bobbery. "If you could only Bee how
your boat's hobbling up and down in
front here! Get in quick, or I can't
hold her. Here! port her helm, or some
thing! Are you all right?"
"It's splendid," 1 said; "come along."
But when Bobbery put his foot on the
unsteady raft she went down on one
side with a plunge. "Never mind," he
aid; "you've just got to push yourself
ashore with this pole as straight as you
can go, and 1 will follow."
I thought that was true or I never
would have left Bobbery. I took the
pole he gave me and went out on the
restless waters that I felt were blood-red
whoro the sotting sun had touched them.
People on the opposite aide cheered, and
cried, and called mo, and Bobbery be
hind called out once or twice "Ship
ahoy!" in ashriil voice that I knew and
loved better than anything on earth,
and once I heard him say faintly he
seemed so far away "In port at last"
The people on shore ceased their
shouts of excitement and encourage
ment; the light had died utterly away.
In an awful sileuce and an awful
darkness I jumped to land and held out
"Bobbery! Bobbery!" I cried, "I
want to thank you."
Did Bobbery hear, sir, do you think?
Do people hear anything, do people un
derstand anything after they have gone
I only know that the awful silence
was turning me to stone, that the awful
darkness was rising like a stone wall
between me and Bobbery and I was
afraid. When I called no one answered,
and I was glad. If his voice was silent
any other voice would bave maddened
me just then, and I wanted nothing
more to tell me the truth. I learned
through the silence on land and sea
how God had answered my prayer.
They told me afterward how the
plank he was launching to help himself
to the shore drifted away from his hand
and was out of sight directly, how they
would have saved him if they could.
and how, when they began to shout to
him directions, he made a sign for sil
ence and stood straight upon the sill,
with the sunset creeping all about him
and the waters washing at his feet
They wondered why he bad made no of
fort to reach the shore with me they
used to wonder for long after why he
stood so sileut, with his eager eves and
restless feet so strangely still, I knew, of
course; but what right had any one else
to come between me and Bobbery? It
wouldn't have done any one any good
to know what I knew that Bobbery
wouldn't let me lose the faintest chance;
thought my blind, helpless life quite as
well worth saving as his own. I would
have done the same for him, sir, any
day for Bobbery and me were always
fond of each other.
The story's been longer than I
thought, sir, but just the evening, and
the floods again, and your wanting to
know about the cross, brought it back
to me like the same evening somehow
An' it's company like to talk of the
And Bobbery? he just died, sir, and
the folks thought such a deal of him
that they collected a bit to set me up,
and I took half of the money just to put
up this little cross by the river side for

A Lonesome Lake Vision.
It would be idle to attempt any ac
counting for the vision I saw two hours
ago when I was sitting on the piazza of
the cabin. The night had settled down,
the darkness rolling in over the eastern
hills and crowding the last of the twi
light up over the ridge of Mount Kins
man on the west The innumerable
sounds of forest night-life had com
menced. The moon, a little past the
full had not yet risen. It was dark, but
not dark, for the stars were aglow, but
there were spots of intense darkness,
one especially black close by me, where
the path to the ice-house enters the pine
forest There is always a temptation to
look into the blackest place in the night
time. Whether it be that danger comes
out of the deepest concealment, or the
natural curiosity of man which expeots
to discover something where all seems
impenetrable, every man. riding, walk
ing, or sitting in what we call the dark,
directs his eye frequently and ceriously
into the places where there is no light
No sudden vision presented itself, but
that black avenue entering the pine
forest was after a little fall of forms and
faces, and out of it came a swelling
murmur rising to a clear enunciation of
voices. How long I looked and saw
and heard I have no idea. Perhaps it
was ten seconds, ten minutes. For the
time the mental vision was a kaleido
scope of all sorts of scenes and people.
Scenes utterly dissimilar in their associa-
tiona, people wiaeiy asunaer in an rea
sonable memory. The dead form of an
Egyptian soldier, lying in the cold
moonlight of Luxor, bis facs set to the
sky., the gold-crowned head of a girl I
have not seen for forty years, a venera
ble matron now, people I knew and
people I never knew but had seen,
voices in many lauguages, some that I
could understand, some that I could not
understand, all these were where? In
my brain? In my mind?
"Ob, it was all Imagination." is your
simple explanation. If you will pardon
the offensiveness, my friend. I will say
your explanation is bosh. I admit that
it was what you are pleased to call im
agination my imagination two hours
ago, not now, for I am trying to de
scribe an actual occurrence and not an
uncommon occurrence in my own and
in your experience, for serious consider
ation. But to say that the condition in
which the mind shuts away the actual
present, and the senses cease to report
sounds or odors or feelings, and the
mind thinks the senses are reporting to
it sights and voices when those senses
are in fact in a state of paralysis to
say that this is imagination is no ex
planation, any mora than the theory of
evolution which omits origin, is an ex
planation of material phenomena.
There is a great deal too much of this
kind of explanation in the superficial
philosophies of our day; the substitu
tion of a new puzzle for au old one,
which triumphantly says "that explains
it" at the very moment you uro won
dering how a saue man can rest satis
fied with an inconclusive aud wholly
unsatisfactory, because not final, ex
planation. What do you m?an by imagination?

the thoughts, created the supposed
faces, created the sounds, did 1? No,

was once a physical ralitv. And now
that I recall the scene, which you call
the imagination, of two hours ago I am
remembering a memory. If, as tbe
materialist theorizes, the origiual facts,
seen with eyes, heard with ears, were
recorded physically in the particles of a
section of the brain, then two hours ago

Saved by a Beetle.
In the year 179:'. a young man of
about 30 sought refuge in the neighbor
hood of Bordeaux. Threatened with
transportation by the Republican party,
on account of his Royalist proclivities,
he fled to the country, where he devoted
himself with ardor to the pursuit of his
favorite science entomology. One
day. having ventured too near the town,
he fell into the hands of a troop of
fanatical "patriots," who seized him
and conveyed him to prison. Six hours
later he was sentenced to death, for he
had publicly confessed who he was, and
the following morning was fixed for his
execution. While partaking of his last
meal he carried on a lively conversation
with his jailer, who, among other things,
expatiated upon the character and the
habits of the presiding judge, saying
lthat the latter employed all his leisure
time in roaming aooui- me country in
search of beetles and butterflies. At
this tho captive pricked up his ears,
and. quick as thought, ho took a rare
beetle out of a small collection which
he had been allowed to keep, and
while the jailer went on talking he pin
ned it, with a pretence of secrecy, to
the bottom ot a cork, which he after
wards stuck in the mouth of a bottle of
spirits. The jailer noticed the opera
tion without saying anything, and, sus
pecting danger, he took the bottle aud
the beetle straight to the President of
the court, ami reported tbe circum
stances. No sooner had the latter es
pied the rare beetle than he hastened to
the prison cell, where soon afterwards.
lost to all around them, the two ento
mologists became absorbed in a pro
longed conversation on scientific topics,
after which they parted as tbe best
friends. That beetle had saved the
prisoner's life. He received from the
President pecuniary assistance, letters
of recommendation, and the best testi
monials as to his Republican sentiments.
The liberated man was none other than

How She Trapped Him,
Here is a littlo story 1 heard t'other
night at dinner, says the American
Register. A geutleman who was going
off to Russia on business desired his
wife to place her picture in bis trunk.
"You know, dear." said he, "I never
travel without your photo, and Marc
Gambler has rendered you to the very

the better half, who had her suspicions.
"That's uukind, dearest Before I
go to sleop I always take a long, linger
ing look at you. kiss it and then go of)
into the land of dreams with you in my
eye. as one may say."
The little morocco case was placed in
the trunk as usual. When the "hubby"
returned and she unpacked his things
"Did you look at my picture while
you were away?"
"Every night It was my supremeat
"I don't believe yon."
"Ah" with a well simulated sigh
"that is unkind."
Whereupon the wife opened tbe case
and showed htm that she had taken the
picture out before she had placed the
case in the trunk just to "bowl him
out" But he was in a degree equal to
the occasion. He remarked:
"I saw the picture had been tamper

the case because you had been there."

done with as littlo violence aud force

An eminent French art collector once
bought in Paris a landscapo by a noted
"impressionist" which he showed, with
much pride in his purchase, to an artist
"But I think," quoth be, "that the
picture lacks animation; it wants per
sonages. Now if you would paint for
me a man or a woman on that road
that runs through the middle of the
landscape, it would greatly improve the
"That is easily done." said the artist
So he carried off tbe painting, and sent
it back in a week or two with the figure
of an old peasant woman going to
market with ber basket and her red
umbrella introduced on the road in
question to the great satisfaction of the
picture's proprietor. Meeting shortly
after with the "impressionist" who had
painted it, the artist remarked: "I had
the audacity to alter a landscape of

painted an old peasant woman walk
ing down the road."
"Down the road? I remember no
work of mine with a road in it. 1
should like to see the picture and judge
of the effect of your alteration."
So the artist carried him oft" to M.
X's, and they speedily stood Ixforo the
landscape. The "impressionist" turned
perfectly green with wrath and horror.
"Miserable man!" he shouted, "what
have you done? That is not a road
that runs through the center of my
work; it is a river!" Our Youth.
Young Mr. Logan's Fiancee.
Clmuncey H. Andrews, of Youngs
town, whose daughter is engaged to be
married to John A. Logan, Jr., is a
millionaire and an iron manufact
urer of Youngstown, Ohio. Ho is a
brother of Wallace C. Andrews, of this
city, and comes here frequently, says a
New York letter to tbe Philadelphia
tress, having investments with him in
the steamboat company, cable road and
the manufacture of gas. Mr. Andrews
is a heavy man, with a large face cover
ed with bushy, reddish whiskers. His
personal appearance is that of a rugged
Scotchman. He is a man of great force
and determination. Years ago Youngs
town was at the mercy of a single rail
road corporation, the Pennsylvania
system being the only line which gave
its iron manufacturers access to theworld.
The policy of the Pennsylvania system
became distasteful to Andrews and ho
one day surprised the people of his
section by seltiug men at work to build
a road from Pittsburg to Youngstown,
which afterwards became a part of tbe
Baltimore and Ohio system, and so
gave the city competition in freights.
This line has since been extended to
Cleveland across northern Ohio towards
Chicago. As president of this road An

one that was used by Gen. Logan dur
ing his tour ot the country in 1884.

There once lived in a neighboring
town a well-to-do Irishman who kept a
grocery-store. He varied his business
by purchasing lint-coMfia. In packing
and baling this cottonHa one occasion
he made bold to include a grindstone.
The bale was forwarded to Charleston,
where it was sold and part of the pro
ceeds used to purchase a hogshead ol
sugar, it so happened the man from
whom the sugar was ordered was the
purchaser of tbe "mixed-packed" bale.
Probing around with his cotton gimle
he found the grindstone and at once
proceeded to bury it in the hogshead of
sugar. In due time it was returned to
the grocer. Months afterward, while
the grocer's son, who was also bis clerk,
was scooping sugar out of the hogshead,
he struck something hard. Uncovering
it he found a grindstone and called his
father's attention to it
"Faith, 'its tbe same old rock!" the
old man exclaimed. "Rimember,

Until within a comparatively short
lime, among the Indians of the Six Na
tions of the reservation in AUegnuy aud
Cattaraugus counties, New York, the
habit has been to sew the body up in a
blanket not forgetting to place inside a
generous supply of meat for food, wam
pum for ferriage over the Styx, and a
how and arrow for use iu the happy
hunting grounds. But when Billy Mc
Bale, one of the favorite chiefs, died,
with a view of doing bis memory es
pecial honor, the bucks bought a cofliu
and interred the remains in pale-face
fashion. Since then the aboriginal
method of disposing of the bodies of
the dead has well-nigh become obsolete,
and now the wealthier Indians buy
caskets and employ undertakers. It is
a mistnken notion that the Western
New York Indians have ever placed the
bodies of the dead on elevated plat
forms, at least for many years past.
The practice formerly was to scoop out
a shallow grave and tumble the remains
in, giving them a scanty covering of

After he was satisfied with his examina

neck and took a long breath as if he
were scenting some pleasant odor, and,
being satisfied with the breeze, he
struck out at a love-running lope toward
a covert by the side of a stream, where
he no doubt found some lady acquaint

Recently two boys, brothers, one of
11 and the other 10 years of age, were
playing on the banks of the river at
Ures. They proposed to take some
wood home to their mother, and while
gathering it lifted the dry brunch of a
tree and uncovered a rattlesnake, which
bit the eldest boy iu the finger. The
youth, feeling the venom entering his
veins, called on the younger brother to
cut off the injured member. The latter
asked: "With what?"
"With this thin, flat stone," replied
the intrepid youth, picking up one and
placing his linger on another flat one.
The brother took tbe stone and ham

Among the farmers of Hindoostan
sowing lakes piace about the last of
September, if the farmer is a Hindoo,
a Brahmin is ronsiilteil to fix an auspi
cious day. and a man is apoiiited to do
the first sowing, afti-r winch any one
can sow grain, but not before. The
average amount of seed per acre is 150
potimK or two and a half bushels. In
some districts tin: wheat is Weeded, and
the weeds serve as food for the farmer
and the yra-. for fodder for cattle. The
ground is watered once after germina
tion, once when tin: wheat is in blossom,
and once while in car. The wheat is
cut in April in the nootl old-fashioned
way. with a sickle. A ma-i can cut one
twelfth of an ac:e. for which he gets
2 l-2d cr day and hoanl-t himself. The
grain is thrashed by driving eattle over
it on an earthen thre-shing floor, and is
trampled trail the straw is broken line
to make "ehoosa" for the cattle. The
grain is cleaned with a fan of about the
same .style as that iu use 100 years ago.

most beautiful iu England. Saver

ham park, lies in the midst of Saver
nake forest, surrounded by the grand
est woodland scenery in Great Britain.
The forest is sixteen miles in circum
ference and contains upward of four
thousand acres. Tho trees are mag
nificent and a story is often told of
how a visitor asked oue of the forest
keepers when oue of the avenues was
planted. "Planted!" was the answer,
in a tone in which ama.ement was
blended with indignation; "them trees
never was planted; they are as old as
the world." The ferns are of extra
ordinary size and the breed of deer is
one of the best in the country. The late
marquis freely opened the forest to the
public and during eight months in the
year thousands of visitois roamed about
it enjoying it.- beauties.
