The father worked for years in the mines rand managed to keep his family above want, but some months previous to the opening of our story he had been injured by an explosion in the mine, thus throwing the burden of supporting the family on his four sons, all under twenty years of age. When the wires flashed the news of the fall of Fort Sumpter all over the land on that memorable April day, the three older boys responded to the country's call and hurried off to the seat of war. Ben, the youngest son, scarcely fourteen years old, with his heart llred with genuine patriotism, ran away from home, and eluding pursuit, made his way unassisted to camp on the Potomac. "He'll be back when he finds out that boys of fourteen are not wanted in the ranks," said his father, when he found out where he had gone. ' But he was mistaken, for when the little fellow discovered that he could not enlist as a soldier he determined to remain at the front and earn his bread by selling papers to the soldiers. His pluck won him unexpected success, and be was very proud to be able to send back substantial help to the needy ones at home. About Nov. 10, 1862, he left camp between New Baltimore and Warrenton and made his way to Washington for a supply of. ^apisrs*, .£. horse-back for the thirty-mile ride that lay between the capital and camp. During his absence the Union forces had changed position, and unaware of the proximity of the enemy, he ran right into the rebel picket line and was at once conveyed to the headquarters of General Stuart, and from that point he was hurried off to Libby Prison, in Richmond. Major Warner was in command of the prison at that time, and when the boy prisoner was brought into his presence he spoke to him kindly and tried to make him as comfortable as was possible under the circumstances. After enrolling his name, the major asked him the customary questions concerning his business and inquired if he had any money or valuables concealed about his person. Poor frightened Ben had managed to hide his money,about $350 in his boots, and not being used to evading the truth, he answered frankly that he had. "Let me have everything in your possession," returned the major, extending his hand as though he had no intention of being trifled with. With quiveiing lips and teaiful eyes, Ben put his hand down into his boot-leg and drew out the roll of greenbacks and handed it to the major. Then, trying to choke back his sobs he told of his invalid father, his overworked mother and the helpless little ones at home, and explained that the money he carried was his soldier brothers' wages that they had intrusted to him while in Washington, together with his own earnings, and that it was all to have been sent away that very day to the desolate family away off in Pennsylvania. The major listened quietly to the sad story, and when it was finished he folded the boy's passes around the money and said : "When the time comes for you to leave this place come to me and you will have your money again." Six weeks later Ben was paroled and repairing to the. major's office to bid him good-by the kind-hearted officer put the package into his hand saying: "Here is your money, my boy, and I am glad that yon will soon have a chance to send it to your mother. Good-by and may God bless and take care of yon." With trembling hands but a grateful heart the little fellow took charge of the package and was soon on his way to his northern home. His ambition was not crashed oat by, his imprisonment, however, and'afteir i weeVs rest'he returned to his old stamping grotthd and was soop going bis rounds with his papers as asua). Two of his brothers were seot home in pine boxes before the war closed ; but, except his brief sojourn in Libby, his experience in the army was not unpleasant, and when peace wag declared he went home with enough money in his pockets to pay off the mortgage on the little house that had sheltered him from infancy. He afterwards worked his way throirgb college, studied law, and in process of time took a high position in his chosen profession; 'Several times in after years during ii^ing trips to Richmond Ben made inquiries concerning Major Warren, bis prison friend, but no one setimed to kpow what had' become of' httd, so he finally gave up the search, though he never forgot (he kindness he bad received aVan enemy's hand. n the ,y<^^188^Beii^tbfii'ctb« THOMPSONVILLEf CONN^ THtOp>AY, OCTOBER 29, 1891, Benjamin Maxwell, went by-invitation Covington, Ky., to deliver the memorial oration on Decoration Day.^In his atf^ dress he repeated the touching incident that had occurred in Libby Prison, and' afterward, while the. old veterans "W&rst< strewing the graves of the dead heroes with flowers an old man came to hiffj and asked him to walk around tcf the other side of the cemetery to look at the grave in which his twin boys' were buried. When they reached the rose-covered grave' he said: "You see the old soldiers have not forgotten my dead, although they* wore the gray. They fell together at Lookout Mountain, And when I came here at the close of the war I had their bodies; brought here for burial." Then drawing: back the wreath that covered their <names, j Mr. Maxwell read: "Sacred to the memory of Arthur and Arnold Warren, this, stone has been erected." When the stranger had finished reading; the inscription on the monument, the father, with a loving touch, replaced the1 flowers, and then, wiping the moisture^ from his eyes, said: "The story of a littltj scene in a Southern prison which you re-r lated this morning took me back to thosef sad days and the times when my brave boys were with me. I am the man to whom you referred in that incident and I have brought you here to let you see what yoar people have done for me by rememr bering my dead." > j Mr. Maxwell grasped the old mati^ bony hand, and with tears in his eyes told him how, in the intervening years, he had searched in vain for a trace of the one who,in the midst of the cruelties of prison life, had proved himself a friend. ,1 After the exercises of the occasion were over he went with the old soldier to his humble home aud there, little by little, he learned the sad story of loss of fortune; home and health, that had followed the death of his two stalwart sons. Besides himself and feeble wife, two young daughters and a son, a mere boy, were dependent upon his daily toil. He made no complaints, but when the boy he had befriended in prison more than . a quarter of a century before offered him a lucrative situation in his own office, thus securing to him a eom-ortable home and means of educating his children, the old man broke down and sobbed like a child. "God never forgets! he never forgets!" he exclaimed, as soon as he could control the tremor in bis voice. "He has said that even a cups of cold water given in his name shall be're-> warded, and now he has fulfilled that promise to me." Ah, how many blessings, go unclaimed because of the caps. ot^o] water we fail to give. ! BIST THE TRUE VINE. ** V, FOUfrTH QUARTER, INTER' NATIONAL SERIES, NOV. 1. A new matrimonial bureau scheme has come to light in Ansonia. A young lady of Ansonia, respectable and good looking, the daughter of a man in moderate circumstances, was picked out by the sharpers as a victim, but she exposed them. She received this letter a few days ago: CHICAGO, Oct. 9, 1891. Dear Miss : A gentlemau in your neighborhood is very anxious to keep your company. He has forwarded me your name, with the statement that he would like to pay his attentions to you, but he does not know whether you care for him or not. Ou the inclosed "private list" write out the name and address of irentlemen—not less than three nor more than ten—whose attentions would be agreeable to you. If your list contains the name of the gentleman we ref«r to it will be evident that there is a mutual liking, and we will inform you at once; otherwise your name will not be mentioned. I charge you nothing for the service, as the gentleman has paid your fee. The letter was signed with the name of a woman. Another circular tells in touching language of the trials and tribulations of a young woman who is pining away because she does not know that the mail whom she loves also loves her. The projectors of the scheme send to a manufacturing community like Ansonia an agent, who gets the addresses of a score or more girls he thinks would nibble at such a bait. Then each one of them receives a letter like the above. If the girl answers the sharpers, then they send a letter to the address of every man she has named. Each young mau is told that a certain acquaintance of his has confessed her love for him, etc. They offer to divulge her name, and arrange for a meeting for §5. If the money is sent the sharpers send the name of the young lady, and at the same time levy tribute, on her, offering to arrange a meeting if she pays for their trouble- Then they leave the young womari and her lovers to arrange the matter for themselves. : Birmingham, Shelton, Seymour and Derby, all manu facta ring settlements, have been worked. - . In the same way a young lady of the town, well along in years and of good family, was induced to confess her love, for a y.oudg man of prominence and wealth. Then they wrote to'her fathet*, inclosing an electrotype copy of'her letter and'asking 8100 for the original. father confronted his daughter abd' she He then took tbft letter to;a who was setting a trap tb c the sharpers when the circular, .toafl lished. • 1 ' *'^ * .

He also called Israel a vine which He had brought out of Egypt (Isa y. 85 Ps. ixxx. 8) But Israel was only a type of Him who now spake with them. -Jft;, '"Every branch in Me that beareth not pfrMt He taketh away/' -JPjAnd. every branch that beareth fruit, He<purgeth it that it may bring forth more f^it." i^Jow He speaks of the eleven, who were y His but needed cleansing, that they t be more fruitful. Anything of self fruitfulness, and all filthiness. bbflB of flesh and spirit, must be cleansed. Th||J also is His work, and He will see to it ifjfWe are only willing (II Cor vii. 1. K/.ek xxivii, 25-27). 4^., "Now y.e are clean through the word ^ich I have spoken unto you." revised Version says, "Already ye "are In," reminding us of His words in xiii, j^He that is washed is clean every whit, arij&ye are clean.'' Everyone IU Christ is wj&hed, justified, sanctified and inmle meet fqtj^ie inheritence of the saints (i Cor. vi, 1 1 ^ I ' h e moment we a r e in Him HeWou r righteousness, and we are ac cejppd iu Him (II Cor. v, 21, Eph. i, 6). He st&nds for us. and we stand in Him com pl|te. "Abide in Me and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine, no more can ye except ye atiijde in Me." it "I am the vine, ye are the branches H&i$hat abideth ia Me, and I in him, the re bringeth forth much fruit; for with |;Me ye can do nothing." e all know that the grapes are gath ( from the branches of the vine and not irtbe stalk, aud also that grapes grow " on the new growth of the branches p®forth year by year. What then is this abfjing which He makes so much of and :hich alone we can bear fruit? What /)t l>e but cdnscious occupation of the With Christ; a continuous faith in ist crucified, risen, interceding and ^ng again t"If a man abide not in Me, he is cast as a branch, and is withered; and gather them, and cast them into the and they are bunted." ^believer may l>e stripped of his gifts opportunities which he failed to itn 'fi, and be thus left as a warning to and finally saved as by fire (1 Cor MV5), or if ouly a nominal Christian /he will finally be cast into the jjf flre (Math, x.xv, 41). "If ye abide in Me and My words abide ask what ye will, luid it i>y| Father glorified ye'!bear much fruit; so shall ye be My di6 ciples." 0. "As the Father hath loved Me, so have 1 loved you; continue ye in My love." Here is the source of all true -ervice and fruit bearing—the love of Sod. Who can estimate the love of God to His only begot teu Sou? And yet that Son says to all who are truly in Him that His love to us is as the Father's love to Himself—everlasting, unchanging, a love that lays down its life for its enemies, a love that bears \Vith such as Peter aud continues to love him through all his wanderings, boastings and denials. 10. "If ye keep My commandments ye shall abide in,My love; even as 1 have kept My Father's commandments and abide in His love." 11. "These things hare I spoken unto you, that My joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full." It was the delight of the Lord Jesus to do the Father's will, it was His meat aud drink (Ps. xl, 8, John iv, 34) This was His joy, aud the time will come when the will of God shall be done 011 earth at^iu heaveu. the prospect of this enabled Him to endure the cross and disregard ti.e shame (Heb. xii. 1,2). When the will of God becomes our delight, aud His way is more to us than our own way, and the glory of His kiugdom is ever before 11s, then shall we have His joy abiding in us and be tilled with it in proport;on as we are filled with His spirit. See Rom. xiv, 17. 12' "This is my commandment., that ye love one another as 1 have loved you." 18 "Greater love hath no man than this, thataman lay dowii his life for his friends." This is the height of human love, to die for a frieud; but see the love of God, for "God cotnmendeth His love towand us in that while we were yet sinners Christ died for «s." "Christ died for the ungodly" (Rom. v, <WJ) 14. "Ve are My friends if ye do whatsoever I command you." 15. "Henceforth 1 can you not servants, for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth." Paul took pleasure iu calliug himself the aervant of the Lord Jesus, meauiug by that his very bond slave, as one whom Jesus had taken captive from the enemy, but be rejoiced to be the servant of Jesus because he had beeu set free from the bondage of •in and Satan, aud he knew it and was fully penmaded of it He was like one who sang: • . , 1 could not work iny soul to save. For that my l/<ird hax <lnne; But .1 could work like any «j»ve l;, From love to Hod's dear Son. "But 1 have called you friends, for all things that 1 have heard of My Father I have made kuown unto you." • Just aa we tell our secrets only to our most intimate friends, so Jesus reveals Himself ' fully ouly to those who prove theuiselves' His friends by keeping His words,, ad He said in chapter xiv, 28. -'lft "Yehave uot chosen Me, but 1 have chMeti yon and ordaitied you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain." ! in Kph. 1, 4, it says that we were chosen; in Cbrist before, the fofiudatiou of th'e: C t i i & e c t l W ' ^ f r e r e ihOHeh to be - h o l y , and without blame before Him in love; uqt eboseu simply to be saved, but chosen to bear fruit that might abide to the glory off toO. might (diare His gioi^ r VTbat whatKoeve.r ye shall ask of the Far ther in my name.

If you can't, you get the money. They're willing to take the risk—you ought to be glad to take the medicine. It's the cheapest medicine you can buy, because it's guaranteed te give satisfaction, or your money is returned. You only pay for the good you get. Can you ask more ?
