LITTLE SUT. Out in Tompkins county, N. Y., lives a well-to-do farmer named Pitkins, with his wife and two daughters. Having no sons he is dependent on hired help, the supply of which is regulated according to the season, a number of farm hands being necess ary during planting and harvesting of crops, while one being usually the only assistant needed ia the winter. Realizing the need of a boy on the place to do the chores for which it did not justify to hire a man, Pitkins talked the matter over with his wife, and they decided to" select a waif from the poor house and raise him up as one of the family, which of- .cbun»e> urged to a fierce attack oh the man. little dog went gallantly into the fightdhd set his teeth so vigorously into the' 1< fs of the tramp that the girl was enabled to escape from him and run to a neighbc 's for assistance. • ..Little Sut realised :t] it there was work for him to do. 1 te screams which cume from^the housepla i-ly indicated that the one man was not 1 le only enemy on the place, and with a sh< it little Sut rushed in to find another tra: ip on the point of overcoming Mrs. Pitkins and the other'daughter in a fierce struggle, in which he had almost tornth6ir clothing off. jf The noise that.little Sut made and me vigorous fusilade of potatoes that pe hurled at the tramp, so disconcerted h|m that it allowed the two women a chance to escape and lock themselves in up stairs.. • Poor little Sut and his dog were lift alone to contend with the two' enraJpd tramps. The fight was uneven andsluwt, the. dog was driven from the field, ahd little Sut alone stood at bay. Suddenly one of the tramps, who had been keeping an eye open foflfdanger, saw approaching the farmer to whose house the other daughter had fled, and giving the alaz n, the two desperadoes rapidly .made ti ir escape to the thick woods near by: ^ . They had done their work cruelly i id well. Little Sut lay in the corner moti B-less, where he fell, and the neighbor laid "him on- the bed, while Mrs. Pitkins and her daughters bent over him and frantically called his name. There was|a gurgling sound in his throat, and a li stream of blood trickled down the sfrfc his mouth and stained the white ru slip of the pillow. Just then Sut-opei his eyes as Mr. Pitkins returned froin: lectiMg another boy to take his place littW cut on Sut's breast showed wh< the knife had penetrated his lungs, the gurgling sound was the blood t' was forcing its life tide inside. ^ $ "Did I drive.'em off?" v J-r That was all little Sut " ever said, with a smile on face and the bli streaming from his mouth, he died in tie arms of Farmer Pitkins, who had gon& p swap him off because he was too small do anything. % ^ A little grave down at the village chur® yard, kept green by three grateftal wdnjt li and-fragrant with perfumes of all now left on earth of little- Sut^al^t somewhere we know he has gone w tlfey do not thin^ Mm too small When the excitement was at its highest, Mrs. Morrisoif, tired and disgusted, said she* could stand it no longer. Application was made by a man who resided in the neighborhood for the house, if Mrs. Morrison left it. This was thought rather singular, as the; circumstances became known. Suspicion arose that possibly this man might know something of this ghostly visitor, and the " knocking at the door o' nights." :; / - Offe of the neighbors was spoken to on the subject. This was Mrs.Roxy Henry,and she Went the next Sunday afternoon to visit the family. The day was fine. Two or three other neighbors were in the house looking about, when all of a sudden a crash came against the wall. This occurring in the day time it was thought to be supernatural. Those who watched that night told the same story, having heard rappings and noises all over the house, up-stairs and down, but could sets nothing. The next morning the writer consulted with Mr. Henry Thompson as to what was best to be done, and both concluded to go that night—one with a shotgun and the other with stout club. The plan vas to remain outside and take cognizance of all comers and goers. In front of the house (in Alden's lot) was corn; in the rear of the house (across the brook) was corn. • Either of these cornfields was- a good place to hide and play tricks, if so disposed. We went up about 8 o'clock; went into the house to notify the family. We advised Mrs. Morrison and daughter to retire early, as we were to remain outside and keep watch,- one in front of the house and the other in the rear. I observed, however, that when I informed Mrs. Morrison that we intended to shoot down anything that might be seen stealthily moving about, a woman, who sat condoling with Mrs. Morrison, suddenly start up and act very strangely. She was the wife of the man who wished to rent the house. After she withdrew, we went on the watch, and met every hour at the front door to report. The night was clear and bright. When the factory bell struck the hour we met, as agreed upon, at the front door, and looked into the window. This Was kept up until the first bells rang in the morning to go to work, when Mr. Thompson suggested that we go home, as no decent ghost woul<|.j come near the house after that hour. We informed Mrs. Morrison before leaving,1 however, that we had heard or seen nothing during <;he night, andi 'she "-Tith-rIB5 HAND FOB ALSO . Macrame Twine for Tidies.

Mie superintendent, always willing to dispose of his charges to farmers, ordered out the boys in-line for a review, and Pitkins and his wife eyed the boys closely and talked with them. He, with an eye to service, selected a large, strong boy; but she, with a motherly instinct, more akin to sympathy, picked out little Sut, the subject of the sketch. "Why, Mary," exclaimed Pitkins, "he's too small!" ~ "But he'll grow, John, and then I like his looks better." "Looks! Tut, tut! What havelooks got to do with it?" S 0 "A great deal. If we are to adopt him and raise him up as a son, and even if he is only to be a farm hand, we do not want a boy to grow up dishonest and vicious. I don't like the big boy's face." " So Farmer Pitkins jgrumbled a little over her choice, as he lifted Sut into the buggy between them and drove home. The boy was, indeed, small for service on a farm, but he seemed grateM for the home, and was willing to do all the busy tasks his hands were put to, and would put his little hand on his tired back without a murmur, after a long time sawing wood. Mrs. Pitkins seemed drawn toward him by his very diminutive size and strength, while Pitkins seemed altaost to dislike him, and was always grumbling about the boy's being too small, although the. farmers wife very sensibly would remark that she' believed the willingness of a small boy would accomplish more than the unwillingness of one twice his size. As little Sut wasn't large enough to wait on the girls, they rather sided Witfctheir father, and made the poor boy*d life rather unpleasant by teasing him. Thus.matters went on for a season ^or so, while one form hand' after another came and went; and, although colts and calves and pigs and chickens all grew and fattened on the place, little Sut seemcid at a standstill, and failed to come up to Mrs. Pitkins' assertion that he would grow. fit's no use, Mary, waiting for this'boy to grow. I must take him bank to> the poor-house and get a larger boy. You can go trith me and select this boy, but he must bd larger." M&. Pitidns, with a feeling of tenderness toward the little homeless waif sher '^had selected, hadn't the hearth to ! go and that now seemed as dear to him as if he had been born in lt, so Mr. Pitkins drdve over alone, while tho farm hand took the wagbn aiad drqve to the mill, for lumber,; lesiving Hfo. Pitkins, the two girls and little'Sut on the form alone, except a little dog which Sut had been tdlowed to adopt from the roadside, the cattle on a Arm scarcely being counted as company' by lone wbtaen ^o^<^not;16olc to themffor dog can^ttehipt.

I expressly stated that I was debted to a Mend for documents, ft which I made extracts—one was .entitlpi "'Historical Sketch of the Town of B: field," published in 1876; and there I fini that since 1835 eleven other houses of r< ligious worship have been built. My/i tention was to give a brief account of th installation siBrvices of Dr. Harvey onlyj but I was led on to speak bf'the othei churches erected in this village, and cer; tainly did not mean to slight that of '«J. L." He refers to the theology of their church bearing the same relation.to the other churches as Pharaoh's seven ljean kind did to the fat ones—but if I remember right, after the seven lean ones had, eaten up the seven fat ones* their condition was not improved, they remained as lean as before.] 1839—In order to settle up the affair s of the late John Adams, Square Dixon was applied to, as Judge of Probate, to appoint an administrator to take charge-of the property. He therefore appointed James Walace. - , " ^ Mrs. Adams moved her flirniture etCi, and returned to her friends in New Jersey. The publishers of the few newspapers in which Adams acted as agent were notified^ and accounts settled up, and a' suitable Mr. James Hifiiter then took charge. Of the papers, etc., and served the subscribers, as before. I think there was not more than-four or five weekly papers, ho dallied;: the paper -business has 'f<s-mained In' the family. ever since—^until :to-day the business has increased to i6 dailies, 2 semi-weeklies, 37 weeklies, 25 monthlies, besides a great nwul^rgf, azlnesj-perlodicals, etc. j;^i|ftg ' As soon as the Adams family had moved out applications were made for the housed as houses were scarce and applicants numerous at that time* It was-let to Bins. Morrison, and she with her family moved'in, and lived quietly and' coinforfc-ably until the early fall, when, their quiet was disturbed by unusual noises and rap^ pings, and thtf neWS s<k»h Adame:house'was ^eranted.^^^^^^p; ~ Application was made to the admit&r trator to see about it. After searohi^ through the buildLig in valp for evidence,|o ^Id^'/^un' away- with Mirk-' Morrisbn's [.children ; had carried them down stairs [ana driven Mrs. M. anfl daughter out Into the street. I went back and found all of the family out of doors, crying, and very much frightened. The children Ijiad been quietly carried down stairs while asleep and set down in #the street; the knbekings, groanings, and frightful noises following drove mother; and daughter out also. Friends soon gathered around and ?-the family was provided with shelter and properly cared for. Shortly after the whole family left the village. A few days after the same man who had previously applied for the" house called again, and was accepted as a tenant, with the understanding that he took it at his own risk, and fight the ghost without any assistance from those having charge of the property. He accepted the terms, -moved in, and the s ghost moved •out, as we he heard.no more, from him or it. A few years after,, during the building of the Crystal Palace in New York (I was residing there at the time) business occasionally called me up in the neighborhood of the building; one day while on my way up I was accosted by a man, and, on looking around, saw the old tenant of the haunted house, who was keeping a £mall dry goods store near there. I called at his store a few days after, and, daring the conversation, the ghost story came up, and he acknowledged that he k^ew a man Who had taken an active part in the affair, and on his mentioning that individual's name, the whole affair was made quite clear to That person was then well mown to all in the village. He has been dead some years. When his name was mentioned I knew that he was well qualified to act the ghost. He feared nothing, and was a great mimic; he would go a good way out of his way to play a trick and make sport. He knew that watchers were in that hotise every night, and, as they stayed in doors sitting around the fire, he could knock on the windows and walls, and otherwise utter hideous noises and produce " manifestations" that would be apt to frighten anybody—any one who knew Stod Abbe would know that.. . W. » watch to ascertain the cause and 3etgct the intruder. Several young men ctune forward, and offered their services, thinking it good sport to go ghost-hunting^ They Went two at a time, 'but no two them ' taking a turn at the ghostly watch*.. * rappings continued to' grow worse and woraej end the fiunily began to outfbr'wint of^esfc ahd;sieep^ the daytime Mrs; Morrlsoh tvhetf "albne?,^«ttd 'at night' worse.

WABNBR has actually perfbrmed mbre permanent cures within the past seven tears that he has been located ft field than , ahy other physician in t: country; it does In feet almost, seem in-teeatment from the best xhedlcal skill in SfeW York city, Bostoni and Philadelphia. ^ty>Uk;e;Springfield and be cured .permanently. But such aro fects. A large ma-jori^ of Dr. Warner's p&tlents are those Whb haVff'beehTmsatisfectorlly treated by otheif physicians of the highest reputation. The doctor's system of treatment is entirely neW as regards practice and pay-meat; for services. Other physicians^ whom you visit ask you almost in the first be tiie. matter tM# matter ii>r, tne. onysician to say. tettrW* what- fee diseased was, Whetheie -he did o* nofc , There Dr. ^Tar-tell them so, and have nothing to do with them, while other physicians encourage them, so the patient can visit the trusted professional man as long as their money holds out, when the physician suddenly comes to the conclusion medicine can do nothing for them. Not so with Dr. Warner. He will not take a patient in hand unless he feels confident that it is a curable one. In regard to the doctor's financial system, when patients put themselves under the doctor's care they have nothing more to pay after the first visit, either for medicine or treatment, no matter how often they have to visit him there is nothing more to pay. One reason the doctor gives for thus dealing with his patients is this: It makes them understand that their first payment includes EVERYTHING, so that they are welcome and urged to repeat their visits and receive their treatment, or to have their stock of medicines replenished until they are ENTIRELY WELL. In this way there is no chance of half cured patients going out from his treatment, as in most caseS where every visit makes the doctor's bnl longer and the patient's pocket lighter. With Dr. Warner's method the first payment entitles the patient to treatment until cured, and patients are not tempted to neglect or postpone calling for that which costs them nothing. Any one afflicted with the following diseases,, Dyspepsia, Palpitation ol' the Heart, Liver Complaint, Female Complaints, Ulceration, Falling of the Womb, etc.. Kidney Disease, Palsy, Dropsy, Rheumatism, Jaundice, Salt Rheum, Pimples on. the Face, Constipation, Indiscretions of Youth, and all Seminal Weaknesses, all Scrofulous Affections, Bilious Complaints? Catarrh; Cold Feet and Hands, Piles, Nervous and General Debility, Loss of Vitality, Tape Worm, and all Lung difficulties, are .cordially invited by the Doctor to call and see him. . Oonsu-ltation is I"r©e. After you have consulted the Doctor, if you do not wish to put your case into his hands, you are in no way obliged to do so. Dear reader, should you be numbered among those who are suffering from disease, and have been under the care of othqr physicians without benefit, and have become somewhat discouraged, do not give up in despair until you have seen Dr. Warner. Remember, it will cost you nothing to consult him; then you can judge for yourself whether he is superior to any other physician you ever consulted, or not. And right here we would call the attention of our readers to a class of men who solemnly affirm that all physicians who advertise are Quacks. There is not much difference between a regular Quack and an irregular one. A Regular Quack is one who has attended some regular chartered college for the term of three years, more or less, obtained a diploma, and received the title of M. D., when in fact he is no more qualified to practice medicine than a child nine years old. He has learned by books to answer certain questions, with a head full of theory, which when put into practice is sure to kill or disable seven tenths of. his; patients. Then, for fear thi^bti=6arrow, contracted mind; should (no matter of ho^^QQh value i*; might be to hfe fellow-men) from one that pursues a different course. ; It would be a crime against the rules of the Regulars that would cause their expulsion, to counsel With one of their own brothers, even though he had graduated at the same school, and was Superior in every respect to them. If he should advertise directly, that very act would be sufficient to stigmatize him as an Irregular Quack. To illustrate, we will point our readers to one fact which happened about a year ago. Mr. , a resident of Boston, who had been told by his family physician that he never could be curecP of a certain malady with which he was afflicted, had by the request of his physician consulted others, of the same school of course, and all agreed with the family physician; but through kind providence the man saw Dr, Warner's advertisements in one of the Springfield papers. To make a long story short, he called on the doctor and put his case in his hands. In about four weeks he was entirely cured. After being cured the man called upon his family physician, who was greatly surprised, yet appeared highly delighted, to see him cured. He inquired who had cured him. The man told him a Dr. Warner in Springfield. He took the doctor's address and said he would visit him at an early day for tho information lie should obtain. After this, in conversation, the family physician asked him how he happened to go to see Dr. Warner, and when the man told him that it was through an advertisement, the regular physician exclaimed,—VWHAT! DOES HE ADVERTISE? Then I do not want to know anthing more about HIM. He is a Quack!" This family physician, we think, without a doubt belonged to the narrow-minded -class .of Regular Quacks just alluded to. Now there are a good many Quacks who style themselves Regulars, (we call them quacks because their work proves them such,) yet we would think It unjust to declare every regular physician a quack, because we KNOW a great many, even in Springfield, to be such. We are well aware that there are quacks, too, among those who advertise, not because they advertise, but because their works show them to be such. As recorded in Sacred Writ, "By their works [or fruits] ye shall ^ Warner challenges any physician in the United States, either in.public or private practice, to produce evidence "of half as many cures as he can for .the past seven vears, — speaking of chronic diseases. Now for the benefit of those who are suf-fering with disease and are not acquainted with Dr. Warner, and by PERMISSION, we refer you to the following well-known people. 1 r-! A.
