His head wuz full er theories; he talked 'em by the job; His speech w'en shelled was one part corn an' ninety-nine parts cob. It sounded purty; some the boys they said 'twas jest immense; " The sound's all right," sez I to them, "but where in time's the sense?" He called purtection ' robbery,' like all the Cobden school, He said free trade wuz righteousness, the modern golden rule. "Is't right ter rob your wife and kids," sez I ter him; " is't right For foriners to get our work while we must starve or fight ?" " It's sound economy," sez he, "to let the cheapest sell." Sez I, "My friend, that barb'rous rule would drag us down to hell. Ter purtect yer home and famberly may be a deadly sin— But them's just the kind er sinners thet St. Peter passes in." " Free trade 'ud save fer you," sez he, "on food, an' cloe's, an' rent." Sez I, "Meat's dear't a cent a pound 'f ye haven't got no cent. Free trade it robs yer wallet an' steals yer meat an' corn, An' oft'ers ye big bargain sales, w'en all yer money's gone." I ast him, "Wouldn't a pauper find it purty middlin' hard To be a dude with trouserin's at thirteen cents a yard ? We'd wear di'mon' studs fer buttons if they sol' 'em fer a nickle, But if we had no money w'd be in the same ol' pickle." "Free trade will usher in," sez he, "the gran' mellenial age ForetoP by seers and prophets ez the worl's great heritage." " Oh, w'en the big mellenium comes 'twill be all right," sez I, "W'en our rivers flow 'ith honey an' our shade trees bloom 'ith pie; W'en the angels drop down manua from the bendin' lirmerment, An' we hoi' our han's an' take it an' don't have to pay a cent; W'en food drops in our open jaws w'ile loafin' in the shade W'y then 'twill be a bully time to inter-duce free trade."

A large number of Drawings and Photographs •:S®I make her happy." "Dear me," said Mrs. Kennington, "all this is very sudden." Mrs. Kennington, who was the sister of a rich New Yorker, had an abiding idea that her niece Madeline ought to marry a rich man." 'She's very handsome," mentally reasoned Mrs. Kennington, "and she is accomplished, and she made quite a sensation in society this winter when she was introduced, and if such a girl as this isn't to marry well then I don't know who is. And the idea of this farmer fellow coming here to put in his pretensions when there are so many eligible young men in society!" •Yes," said Mark, quietly, "I suppose it seems sudden to you. All these things do seem sudden at the last." 'I'm sure I don't know what Mr. Vas-sar, her pa, will say," said Mrs. Kennington, putting her head feebly on one side. When Mr. Vassar returned Madeline told him her heart's secret at once,for the bond of affection between this father and daughter had always been very tender and close. "So you love him, dear," said Rufus Vassar. "Oh, yes, papa!" "Enough to give up all the fripperies of fashion for his sake?" "Yes, papa!" uttered the girl, with emphasis. "And to become a farmer's wife in the White mountains?" "Oh, yes," cried Madeline, earnesly. "Papa, may I write him to come?" "Not just yet, child," said Mr. Vassar. "I've got a little business to transact up in Albany before I can consider myself fairly settled at home. But at the end of a couple of weeks or so—" "Papa, you are a darling!" cried Madeline. "Stop, stop, Miss Precipitancy!" cried Mr. Vassar. "I have not promised anything yet, either one way or the other." "But you're going to, papa—I know you're going to!" cried Madeline, dancing joyfully about. "We'll see," said Mr. Vassar.. * * * * * * * The great wood fires blazed up the chimneys of Purple Peak farm, casting a red reflection through the twilight on the mountain roadside, when a stout, elderly man walked up to the door and knocked resolutely on its panels. "Can you keep me here all night, young man," he said. "Mr. Ritt, of Portcaster, sent me here to have a power of attorney drawn out, and I haven't passed any hotels- " *" * ^ \ "No, I should think not," said Mark Plinlimmon, with a cheery laugh. "We don't deal much in hotels along this road. But you are-kindly welcome to stay jiere as long as you like, Mr. ' '.'Middleworth," said the stranger. "Ruftts Middleworth." And he set down his valise and looked around him at the dark,oiled waindboting, the ceiling traversed by monster beams, the latticed casements, tbe old oak nettles on each side of the blazing logs. "Yoa seem to have a fine farm here, Mr. Plinlimmon," said he, "and finely kept." |#It's not bad," said Mark, carelessly. vvAnd evferythiiigln tfae'r&dttfd'Eogiiiii s t y l e . " x ' - - , ' y "Yes," said Mark, "it belonged to an old Lincolnshire family who took a. fancy to settle out here. They got to dabbling in railroad shares and failed. The daughters went back to their old friends in England, such as they had. The father blew his brains out in New York. The estate was sold at foreclosure. I bought it. There's the history of Purple Peak farm." One by one the different members of the family dropped in as he sat talking with Mark Plinlimmon. Old Mrs. Plinlimmon was first—a mild, white-haired matron with soft, wistful eyes; then a rosy-cheeked brace of nephews. "Their father and mother iye dead," observed Mark, "so I adopted them, and fine fellows they are." "Not a bad symptom," said Middle-worth Vassar to himself. "But, of course, most people are good to their own kith and kin." And then entered a most majestic old man, with long, white hair hanging over his shoulders, leaning on a cane. "And this," said Mark, "is our Uncle Joe," hastening as he spoke to set an easy chair for the ancient patriarch. "Uncle Joe, this is Mr. Middleworth, who has come from Portcaster. I have invited him to stay all night, if you do not object." Uncle Joe waved his hand like an old prince. % "He is welcome," he said, "very welv. come, Mark. In fact, any friend of yours is welcome to Purple farm." And then he began to warm himself at the blaze and fell into a sort of a revery." Uncle Joe, whoever he might be, was evidently the person of most consideration in the little household. He sat at the head of the little table and said grace before meat, and had the warmest corner, the easiest chair, the most tender consideration ; and finally, when he trudged up stairs to bed, Mark dutifully held the door open for him to pass through, and Mr. Middleworth asked with some interest : "Who is that old gentleman? He has a fine face. Of course I know that he is your uncle, but who—" "No," said Mark Plinlimmon, smiling; "he is not my uncle at all. He is no relation in the world to me." "Then who does he belong to?" "He belongs to nobody. He is a sort of cousin to Mr. Ilendexter, the Englishman who built the house. He went with the young women to Lincolnshire, but he was not welcome there. He was old, you see, and penniless, and past work, so he came back here, and they put him in the workhouse. But I think the shock and all touched his mind, and one day we found him here on the steps. 'I have come 'Home^'B'elaTcfT* 'fhTWorfliouse auin^ri-ties sent for him, but I wouldn't let him go back. He is very old, you see, and very feeble, and perhaps they wouldn't be quite so considerate of him as they ought. So here he remains, fancying that he is the master of Purple Peak farm, and that we are his friends and visitors. He isn't the least bit of trouble, bless his kind old soul," Mark added, apologetically, "and if it was my father or yours, alone in the world, don't you see " "Mr. Plinlimmon, you are right,"shouted Mr. Middleworth, astonishing the young man by jumping up and wringing his hand vehemently. "I'm quite satisfied now." "1 beg your pardon," said Mark in surprise. "About—about the relationship," said Mr. Middleworth. "I confess it puzzled me a little at first." He started to return to New York the next day; still he did not divulge his per-souality. A month subsequently, when Mark came to the city in response to a joyful letter from Madeline, he was conducted into the library, where an elderly gentleman sat. "Here is papa, Mark," said Madeline. "How do you do, Mr. Middleworth?" said tbe amazed son-in-law-elect. 'Middleworth Vassar, if you please," said the old gentleman with a chuckle. 'Aha! My little girl here, who thinks she knows everything, doesn't know that went to Purple Peak farm to satisfy myself that she had fallen in love with a good and true man. And I did satisfy myself." HEZEK1AH DELIVERED. LESSON IV, FIRST QUARTER, INTERNATIONAL SERIES, JAN. 24. The Bad Lands. The Bad Lands are in Dakota, Wyoming and Northwestern Nebraska, between the north fork of the Platte and the south fork of the Cheyenne river, and cover an area of about sixty thousand square miles. They are described as one of the most wonderful regions in the world. Geologists hold that during the miocene period a vast fresh water lake covered this portion of the American continent. As these lakes drained off, after the subsidence of the plains further east, the original lake beds were worn into canyobs that wind in every conceivable direction. Here and there abrupt, almost perpendicular, portions of the ancient beds remain in all imaginable fornis, some resembling the ruins of abandoned cities. Towers, spires, cathedrals, obelisks, pyramids and monuments of various shapes appear on every side. Dr. Hayden, the earliest explorer of this region, says: "Not infrequently the rising or setting sun will light up these grand old ruins with: a wild, strange beauty, reminding one of a city iilutrii* nated in the night, as seen fro.m some high point. The harder layers project from tbe sides of the canyons; with such regularity that they appear like seats of some vast, weird ampitheater." These lands are entirely ansuited for agriculture, and with rare exceptions are of little value for grazing. They are, however, one of the richest treasuries of fossil remains to be fouud any where. The soft, clayey deposits are in some places literally filled with the bones of extinct species of the horses rhinoceros, ^elepltant,: bpgf Camel, a deer that strongly resembled':4 hog, saber tootiied lions- and other velous creatures. Text of the Leiison, Ian. xxxvii, 14-21, 33-38—Memory Verses, 15-17—Golden Text, PH. xxxiv, 17—Commentary by the Rev. D. M. Stearns. 14. "Aud Hezekiah received the letter, and spread it before the Lord." Just the right thing to do with all difficulties if you would have peace (Ps. lv, 22; I Pet. v, 7; Phil, iv, 6, 7; Mark vi, 30). The king of Assyria was besieging Jerusalem; blasphemous letters were sent from one of his generals to Hezekiah, aud this is what Hezekiah did tinder the$e circumstances. The first part of the lesson gives Heze-kiah's prayer, and the last, the Lord's answer in word and deed. To understand fully read from chapter xxxvi, I, and also the parallel accounts in II Kings xviii, xix; II Chron. xxxii. 15. "And Hezekiah prayed unto the Lord, saying:" In II Chron. xxxii, 20, it is written that Isaiah, the prophet, joined him in this prayer. They did not know Math, xviii, 19, but they acted as if they did. 16. "O Lord of hosts. God of Israel, that dwellest between the cherubim, thou art the God, even thou alone of all the kingdoms of the earth; Thou hast made heaven and earth." The hosts of Assyria are Against him, so he appeals to the Lord of •H-' ho.sts, for he controlleth all in heaven and on earth. 17. "Incline thine ear, O Lord, and hear; open thine eyes, O Lord, and see; and hear all the words of Sennacherib, which hath sent to reproach the living God." The first part of this verse is very like a part of Dan' s prayer (Dan. ix, 18) and reminds us of 'repeated petitions in Solomon's prayer (I Kings viii, !20, 30, etc.). The last part makes us think of David's words concerning Goliah (I Sam. xvii, 26-45), aud teaches us how to look upou all enemies for Christ's sake and how to deal with them. 18. "Of a truth, Lord, the kings of Assyria have laid waste all the nations and their countries." Hezekiah calls attention to a part of the letter (verse 11) which he jackuowledges to be true, and confesses that the Assyrians had much power over (Some nations, but that was no reason why jlsrael should fall before them, for Israel ;had protection which no other uatiou had, ithough the Assyrians were ignorant of it. h.'here is no occasion for any child of God fever to be afraid of anything or any one. j 19. "And have cast their gods into the fire, for they were no gods." Idols of wood Knd stone which their own hands had made fcould never help them. We think it jstrangeto see people put any reliance upon feuch vanities, but how much better are those who rely upon silver or gold or the ^ower or wisdom of mau instead of upon the Creator of all things? 20. "Now, therefore, O Lord our God, save us from his hand, that all the king doms of the earth may know that Thou artthe Lord, even Thou only." Deliverance is asked for that God may be glorified, and such prayer for such an end is sure of an answer (John xiv, 13), God redeemed Israel and led them by his hand to make his name known in the earth rii ftr fin irjl) The great bus' |el's A Demand on St. Peter. A curious custom of the Greek church was illustrated at the funeral the other day of the young Grand Duchess Paul of Russia. Before the coffiu was closed the Metropolitan placed a written paper in the right hand of the corpse, which read "We, by the grace of God, prelate of the holy Russian church, write this to our master and friend, St. Peter, the gatekeeper of the Lord Almighty. We announce to you that the servant of the Lord, Her Imperial Highness, the Grand Duchess Paul, has finished her life on earth and we order you to admit her into the kingdom of heaven without delay, for we have absolved all her sins and granted her salvation. You will obey our order on sight of this document which we put into her hand." Points About Tea. Ci, 14). 'rh"e~"greatr business of every "EST liever is to manifest Jesus in these mortal bodies (II Cor. iv, 11). 21. "Then Isaiah, the son of Amoz, sent unto Hezekiah, saying, Thus saith the Lord God of Israel, Whereas thou hast prayed to me," etc. Immediately the answer comes by the mouth of God's servant Isaiah, for this prayer needed an immediate answer. 33. "Therefore thus saith the Lord concerning the King of Assyria, He shall not come into this city." Great is Jehovah. He doeth according to His will in the armies of heaven and among the inhabitants of earth, and none can stay His hand (Dan. iv, 35). When He speaks, it is done. When He says, "Hitherto shalt thou come, but no farther," that settles it (Ps. xxxiii, 9; Job xxxviii, 11). 34. "By the way that he came, by the same shall he return, aud shall not come into this city, saitli the Lord." All his labor would be for nothing and great would be his loss. How much time and strength and money is wasted iu fighting against God. 85. "For 1 will defend this city to save it for mine own sake and for my servant David's sake.'' Not for His people's sake, nor for the sake of the king or the prophet, but for His own sake and because of the covenant made with David (II Sam. vii, 20, 21; Ezek. xxxvi, 22). See what He does for every believer for His own and His Son's sake (Isa. xliii, 25; I John ii, 12), and let "For Jesus' sake" be a great motto in oiir lives. 36. "Then the angel of the Lord went forth and smote in the camp of the Assyrians IS.5,000." Angels are ministering spirits who delight to do His will. Two or them led Lot aud his family out of Sodom; one ministered to Elijah in the wilderness; one led Peter out of prison, while another smote Herod; one found Paul on the ship in the storm out on the Mediterranean and comforted him; many ministered unto Christ in the wilderness, one strengthened Him in Gethsemane, aud legious were ready to do His bidding. Be comforted, oh, believer, by the fact that holy angels continually minister to you (Heb. i, 14). 37. "So Sennacherib, King of Assyria, departed and went aud returned, and dwelt at Nineveh." Just as God had said (verse 34). A little space for repentance was granted unto him, if perchance the mighty power of the True God which he had seen might-lead him to seek tbe God of Israel. 88. "And it came to pass, as he was worshiping in the house of Nisroch his god, that his sons smote him with the sword." Back to his idols, utterly indifferent to the God of Israel, blind and deaf to the claims of his Creator, dead iu sins, space for repentance not improved, he goes out suidenly to meet the God whose power he had felt but whom he knew not. What a fearful meeting! To know God is Life Eternal; not to know Him is Eternal Death. The long suffering of God is one of the most wonderful things in the whole Bible; how slow He is to let His wrath fall, and how in every possible way He pleads with men to repent! Read in Job xxxiii, 14-80, how He. seeks to deliver the sinner from the wrath to come; and notice especially verses 29, 80, "So all these things worketh God oftentimes with man, to bring back the soul from the pit to be en-lightened with the light of the living." I Notice also that the awful judgments recorded iu Revelations as yet to come upou men have for: their'eud that men may repent. In one We read.of men on earth being given a taste of the torments of hell if perchance they may turn to God and escape eternai torment (Rev. ix, 20, 21; xvi, 9, 11). We love to contemplate the lc>ve and long : suffering ofGod, but we must also remember that "He that being often reproved • bardeneth bin neck shall suddenly be de- • stroyed, and tliHt-wltii"'it romjdy" To prove that the earth revolves fill the surface of a basin of water with ltcbpo-dium powder, jm<l on Its white surface sprinkle a line of charcoal.

The earth in moving has 'carried with it the howl, but the powder has been left a little behind and seems to have moved the othe^ way. Americans use more ea per capita than the Chinese, but they prepare it in a way that would bring tears to the eyes of a Chinese dragon. Tea iu China costs all the way from 5 cents to $20 a pound. American tea-drinkers are advised to use only black tea. All the good green tea is kept in China. Regular drinkers of green tea a'-e bound to have copper-plated stomachs by reason of the copper-dust from the dirty curiDg-pans of the growers. Infuse your tea. Don't bjil it! People who boil tea will fry beefsteak, stew cotfee aud eat with a knife. Use a china or porcelain pot—or, if a tin pot, let it be new and clean. Tea in an old tin pot produces tanuate of irou, which is very injurious. The Chinese never put milk into tea. The combination produces tannate of fibrin or leather, and you are drinking boots and shoes mildly disguised. Mark Twain's Brother. ONE OF THE MOST ABSENT-MINDED MEN ALIVE. Mark Twain has a brother living in Keokuk, la., who is absent-minded enough for Mark to "put iu a book." It is related that he drank violet ink for blackberry cordial and took an allopathic dose of ammonia instead of his cough medicine, but his latest absent-minded adventure occurred last summer, when his wife had gone to a Sunday-school picnic. Mrs. Clemens instructed her husband that he would find his lunch nicely prepared in the refrigerator. On her return home she inquired of Mr. Clemens as to hit hftrhfir"?"""* «*»i* Pensions, Etc.

"Well," said Mr. Clemens, "I didn't think the salad you spoke of was especially good, but I ate it." Mrs. Clemens discovered that he had "eaten it" indeed, that is,the yeast put to raise for the next day's baking, while the salad remained untouched. To Clean Gloves. When the gloves are soiled they can be as well cleaned at home as at the professional cleaners. Wash them in benzine, rubbing and squeezing them as freely as if they were cotton. Then rinse them in clean benzine; if very dirty they will require several rinsings. Benzine must be used in ample quantity, but if bought by the quart at a paint shop, it is very cheap, and by allowing it to stand in a glass jar the dirt from the gloves will settle upou the bottom in a few days, leaving the liquid clear and free to pour off for use again and again. After the dirt is removed from the gloves wipe them with a soft iiannel and hang them over a register or lay them in a towel in a half-cool oven with the door open. Heat will dissipate the odor of benzine much more thoroughly than will exposure to the air. If the gloves are dressed kid, iron them over tissue paper with a moderately warm iron. This will give them the shape and gloss of new ones. If you are so unfortunate as to b'jy a pair of gloves much too large for your hands you can contract them perceptibly by laying a warm iron upon them for a few minutes.

AN IMPORTANT LETTER AND AN INTERESTING INTERVIEW. A <lay or two .since, while in the office of Dli. ROYCE, at the Hotel Gilmore, the writer was shown the following letter: BURLINGTON, Vt., April 20, 1891. DR. ROYCE : Dear Sir—I beg*n to use your medicine on the 19th of February. The first week gave me relief, and continued every day after to do so. Your medicine'struck every part of my complaint. That seemingly incurable asthma is entirely cured; my cough is entirely cured; ray food does not distress me any—in fact, I am a new man. I have seen in the papers. a great many accounts of cures, but uond to beat mine, for which I am very thankful. Yours resp., CHAS.J HEWETT. This letter needs no comment at our hands, other than to say that it indicates a result fully as satisfactory to Dr. Royce as it must be to his patients. Strong testimony near home.—" I would not ask to feel any better than I now do," ^ began Mr. Pomeroy, " but I felt mighty ;;j Miserable when I first consulted Dr. $ Royce, and I was in pretty bad shape. | My trouble seemed to settle in my throat and head. There was always a dull, full | feeling in my head, and a heavy pain in | my eyes; head felt stopped up and so did §s my nose to soch an extent I could never breathe freely through it for years past. I seemed to be short-winded and couldn't breathe freely. My throat felt raw and so>re, and the phlegm kept me constantly s hawking and coughing, trying to clear it. I had: been advised , by several friends to call on Dr. Royce, and finally did so. I felt better immediately after beginning with him, and am well pleased with the result of his treatment. I feel wetl and strong, again, and I gained twenty pounds under his care. I could.not say too much in praise: of Dr. Royce, and I want to say, •; too,tiiat his charges are by for the lowest! ever had to,pay to a flrst-ciass physician.''
