A man of , middle age laid down a
newspaper, came forward and took Fred
by the hand.
"So you are the lad that saved my

tell me all about yourself everything.

Dick Smith, Ch'arlc3 Long, and Fred
Hoed were in a great hurry., Dick was
ithead, with liLs cap pushed back and his
cheek;: all of aglow. .The boys quickened
their pace as they entered the street that
was appointed where the fun should be.
Just before the boys reached the place
designated,' "they saw a sight which
should have touched the hearts of every
one, but in this case it seems it did
A young man was staggering along the,
sidewalk!, and when he came to the boys.
Ik; reeled against Dick, which made him
quite vcked, and would have struck him
had it not been for Fred, who by this
time liad reached the spot, and as
Fred was blessed with a very good tem
per, he succeeded in starting Dick along
without further delay.
"Come along, Fred, don't bother 1"
said Dick, after ho had started along a
Jew paces, "he's only a drunken fool $
Hut Fred did not heed Dick's call.
He was bound to see where- the drunken
man was eroiiur to. as ho had a deal of
sympathy for him. He had riot watched
the man long when, glancing up, he saw
a team coining at a fearful rate, driver
less, and the, drunken man was head
ing towards the (street center. For a
second, Fred paused ; he thought of his
" poor mother at- home (who was a widow)
i depending on him for her support, of
how lojelyshe would bo if he should bo
killed; he even had time to think how in
the world she could get the money to
buy him a cofliu, and the terrible sight
he must witness if ho remained where he
was, and ho resolved to make the attempt
at tho risk of his own life. He then
sprunsr forward, snatched tho drunken
man from under, the very feet of the
horse., and reached the opposite pave
ment, he knew not how. In a moment
a large crowd gathered, admiring Fred's
courage and asking him1 questions, as a
crowd are in the habit of doing.
" You are very good," said the young
man, by this time roused to conscious
ness. " What is your name ?"
"And where do you live I",
In S : Court, No. 15," said
Fred, blushing to think in what a low
fore he could come.
Well, to make a long story short, Mr.
Johnson went to see Fred's mother, and
he told . her that he was a dry goods
merchant in the city of C , and he
wanted Fred and her to go back with
Mm when he went. After some con
sideration, she went, and Mr Johnson
found a situation for her where she
could earn very good wages.' He took
Fred into his own store, and soon made
him head clerk, and there is not a more
promising young man in the whole city
of C than Frederick Reed. The
boy that he had saved from death never
touched, tasted, or handled the intoxi-l
eating, cup afterward; that frightful
'event learned him a lesson which he
never will forget.
And now, my dear reader, did it pay ?
I, think it did, and you will probably
agree with me. If you are ever tempted
not to do good when an opportunity is
offered, put your temper under your
foot, and obey your heart s impulses.
Now do not wait for opportunities of
doing) good to others to come to you, but
seek1 them out, and your Heavenly
Father will reward you in heaven if not
this earth. - '
The Lost Boy.
Time wears on, and yet no certain
knowledge comes as to the fate of little
Charley Ross, whose name has been so
often mentioned in every household in
the country. Almost every week, there
are rumors of a boy discovered some
where answering the description of the
lost Charley. 3 Jut in every case investi
gation proves that, although the resem
blance may be striking, it is not the
missing child who strangely disappeared
last July. Yet the general search which
has been instituted has brought to light
some hidden things, revealed some mys
teries, and discovered some evil-doers,
as well as some other long-missing chil
is found in the fact that the
fashionable women of Boston, Hartford,
and other neighboring towns get their
dresses made here. There is not a
modiste in Boston that can equal a
New York style. Boston women come
hither for the express purpose of getting
dresses, and when 1,000 is to be in
vested in this manner the traveling and
hotel expense is a mere trifle. The best
modistes have elegant parlors on the
side streets, near Broadway; the entrance
looks like that of a ' private house.
Sometimes no sign is displayed, this
being only the case with a few of the
most reciter che order. The mistress of
the establishment is splendidly dressed,
with a fine show of diamonds. Her
manners are Parisian, her face is rouged,
and her language is a fascinating broken
English, intermingled with the purest
French. Her very appearance is a sen
sation. The assistant is of plain aspect,
and is ready at showing the styles while
the mistress carries on conversation on
the important! subject which brings the
fashionable world to her establishment.
Measures are taken, sometimes by a
genuine Frenchman, whose fingers move
round a female shape with the agility of
a monkey. Up stairs the scene is dif
ferent. There one may find the poor
iris at work stiching as for their lives
working early and late, going through a
daily martyrdom as the victims of gree
and oppression; for the mistress, wealth;
for them, toil and misery. When you
want to talk of a profitable business, just
enter one of these establishments. It is
perfectly wonderful how they pile on the
price. Well, one-half the appreciation
of these gay styles consists in the idea of
special limitation. Here are choice
styles, concealed from all but the very
inside Ting of golden aristocracy, with
prices to match, Some dresses at $5,000
will answer for these butterflies of fash
ion, but occasionally even , these will be j
exceeded. A more moderate clasp may
be satisfied with a': $2,000 dress, while
others are content with a $1,000 pattern.
These modistes show their profits by
theif1 summer trips to Saratoga, Long
Branch, and other places of ton. They
have their own aristocracy, , which is
peculiarly exclusive, and of these the
present prisoner at Ludlow street is a
leader. Whenever ner term expires she
may expect additional honor as one of
the martyr3 of fashion and the unjust
laws which oppress it. It is probable,
however, that the next time she makes a
trip to Paris she will be willing to pay
the duties on the trunks whic i form her

Mr. John Mitchel, who was elected to
the English Parliament from the county
of Tipperary by a unanimous vote, had
recently visited England without any in
terference on the part of the English gov
ernment. His offense consisted, in as
sailing the Queen and taking part in a
movement to overthrow the British gov
ernment. In 1848, when Europe was
alive with revolutionary impulses, John
Mitchel, in conjunction with William
Smith O'Brien. Thomas Francis
Meagher and many others, engaged in i
an attempt to free Ireland. Mitchel
was tried under an act which made it
felony to " compass or to imagine the de
position of the Queen, or to give expres
sion to any such intention." We believe
it was the trial of Mitchel and his con
viction that led to the rising when, under
the command of O'Brien, the Irish pa
triots engaged in a conflict at Ballin-
garry, where several lives were last. The
result of this conflict was the trial of
O'Brien and his friends for high treason,
their conviction and banishment.
O'Brien was allowed to return to Ire
land in 185G, and the action of tho Eng
lish government in permitting this was
regarded as a virtual pardon to all con
cerned with him.
Others of the patriots escaped from
transportation, with the connivance, it

The newly appointed warden of the
penitentiary on BlackwelL's Island says
that vhen he entered upon his duties he
determined to reduce Wm. M. Tweed to
the ievel of the other prisoners, permit
ting no discrimination whatever in his
favor. He caused a strict measurement
of the cells to be made to see if one could
not be found suitable for the prisoner.
A comparison of the measurement of the
prisoners and that of the largest cell
showed that the cell was just an inch
wider than the prisoner, thus rendering
it impossible to put him in a cell without
seriously endangering his health. The
warden then selected the most secure of

Mr. Z. A. Gilbert says: "H we
would make our dairy successful we
must breed good cows. In doing this
feed will have a great influence. Not
only is it necessary to breed for the
dairy but to feed for it as well."
Talking of feeding calves, a writer
says: "Skimmed milk gives a healthy
growth of flesh and bone, while whole
milk tends also to the production of fat,
especially if fed liberally."
As a feed for fifty fowls, the following
is recommended by one who uses it:
"Four - quart3 of shorts, mixed with
warm water, fed in the morning; in the
afternoon, four or five quarts of cracked
or whole corn; keep warm water by them
through the day, and give one peck of
.oats once a week; also give some hay,
straw or chaff once a week, or keep
ashes, sand or gravel by them." j
Concerning sowing grass seed, one j
farmer says he had rather have one peck
of ln own raising than a bushel of such j
as he can purchase. Prefers the last of j

To take a hearty meal just before re
tiring is, of course, injurious, because it
is very likely to disturb one's rest, and
produce nightmare. However, a little
food at this time, if one is hungry, is
decidedly beneficial : it prevents tho
gnawing of an empty stomach, with its
attendant restlessness and unpleasant
dreams, to say nothing of probable head
ache, or of nervous or other derange
ments, the next morning, One should
no more lie down at night hungry than
he should lie down after a very full din
ner, the consequence of either being dis
turbing and harmful. A cracker or two,
a bit of bread and butter, or cake, a lit

of vacuity, and bo restore the tone of tho
system is all that is necessary.
