When the gorgeous tints of sunset
Have passed from the sky away,
Aud the day is changing slowly
Into the twilight soft and gray ; S
When the gentle breezes of evening,
With kisses soft and light, j
WooYrom the dewy roses,
Incense for the wings of uight,
My heart repeats, with a sad refrain,
"Days that are gone, pleasure and pain.
Loved days of happy childhood !
O, fair and cloudless morning !
When days of joy and pleasure,
With rosey tints were dawning,
No tli might of clouded evening
When flowers would cease to bloom,
W lien clouds af deepest sorrow
Would .shroud mo iu their glopm.
No thought of the dark to-morrow, when
night would follow day
When Scylla and Charybdis, their pres
ence would betray.
Mut alas ! the clouds too quickly -Obscured
my future way.
Days, bright as the clouds at sunset,
Like them soon turned to gray.
And castles, grand aud lofty,
Of fortune, tame and treasure
Disappeared ; while anguish and woe
Usurped the throne of pleasure
And 1 t'ou ml, when no joy with sorrow
You may bid farewell to holiday friends.
I drifted across the wild waters,
Alone on the ocean of time ;
Aud life was dark aud dreary
It had lost its rhythm and rhyme.
But I looked to God iu the darkness,
To the author antTprcserverjof life.
He still the fierce heart struggle,
And lulled the restless strife.
So, in the deepening twilight, rest to my
heart is given ;
For I look not for joy on earth, hue be
yond to the gate of heaven.
The Children we Keep.
The children kept coniingWie by one,
Till the boys were five and the girls

Mr. Bright on America
Good Reading for Intelligent Tax
Payers. From the London Times' Report of his Ad
dress at Birmingham.
In our time the very gentlemen
who were opposed to us told the peo
ple that if we allowed the untaxed corn
of foreign countries to come here our
people would be thrown out of em
ployment, land would go to waste,
the laborer would be worse paid than
he was before. Now, in the United
States the very same argument is used.
The protection party in the United
States says to the people, "What will
become of you if you allow the man
ufactures produced by the pauper la
bor of England to come into the
United States? What will become of
your labor and what will become of
your wages?" And so they say exactly
what our countrymen said forty years
logo, only talking of pauper labor, I
think, has tor the most part vanished,
and if wages have doubled during the
last forty years, and everything upon
which wages are expended is reduced,
what can be more monstrous than to
speak of the pauper labor of England?
Perhaps, though I am speaking here
in this vast assembly of my own
countrymen, I may be permitted to
address a word to the working classes
of the United States of America.
Well, I will say this to the working
men ami artisans of the United States,
that centuries of legislation in this
country have not done so much, lrave
not conferred so great benefits upon
the labor qf England as have been
conferred by that great Minister of
foity years ago Sir Robert Peel
cheers and by Mr. Gladstone, the
great Minister of to-day. Loud
cheers. Will you permit me to
dwell for a sentence or two upon a
question, as it affects the United States,
in which we, and they, and all the
world are greatly interested?1 I be
lieve that the question in the United
States as between a high protective
tariff and a merely revenue tariff is
nearing its solution. Hear. Opin
ion is growing; facts economic facts
which are I r resist aWe, are coming
to the front and are offering them
selves to the consideration of stales
men there, and of every intelligent
man in that great Republic.
There is an extraordinary condition
of lhing8whicli no other country iu
any age of the world has ever experi
enced, or even dreamed of. There is
an actual surplus of revenue of 30,
000,000. Why our Chancellor of the
Exchequor potters about with l,
000,000 or 2,000,000. He puts a
penny on the income tax one day, aud
another day takes it off again ; one
day he gives a quarter of a million to
the country gentlemen to help then?
repair their roads, and then discovers
that he cauijot find the money,
and does not do it. rLatiLrhter.l
Chancellor of the exchequer of the
United Sfajes, monarch apparently of
all he surveys, deals with a sum, the
magnitude of which we cannot meas
ure and cannot conceive, but a lump
sum of 30,000,000. Now, this
30,000,000 is fatal to the high pro
tection parly. The Government does
not know what to do with it; it must
either throw it away or spend it in
something foolish. and unnecessary, or
else it must refuse to receive it by re
ducing the duties. Now,
when that question comes to be dis
cussed in the great forum of a nation
of 50,000,000 people what must be
the result? A very intelligent mem
ber of Parliament told me two or
three years ago I am not sure I ever
quoted his opinion before, but it is
worth hearing I think, as he said
thai his Liberal opinions had been
greatly strengthened by what he had
observed in the United States. Hear,
hear. He said, "If you note what
they do, a great many of them talk
wildly and foolishly, but," he said,
"they always act very wisely."
Laughter and cheers. Well, two
ears hence, I believe, there will be
a good deal of talk, and perhaps a
good deal of it wild and foolish, but
when that people are brought to the
issue whether, having struck off the
negro, they are to leave the fetters of
protection upon the industry of all
their countrymen, I believe they will
do before long what we have done,
(cheers,) and will declare it to be the
inalienable right of every American
as it is the inalienable right of every
Englishman to spend bis money iu
the cheapest market in the world.
(Loud cheer-.) ; Now,
what I w ant to suggest to you is this,
that if it should come, as 1 believe it
will come, that the United States will
go down to a sensible revenue tariff,
whatever that may be I do not
point the sum or the amount; I mean
a tariff which will permit large free
dom of trade with all the nations of
the world and then, if England and
America, growing rapidly to 100,
000,000, take this course, what will
be the effect upon the other nations
of the globe ? ' May I ask
you what at this moment are the two
great curst s of Europe. The one- is
the system of high tariffs, the war of
tariffs, and the other is the war of
arms and armies. (Cheers.) The
one is burdensome in fact both are
burdensome at all times, and armies
are at times more than burdensome
when they are employed in destruc
tion and slaughter. If yon were to
destroy the tariffs of Europe you
would destroy the pretense for the
maintenance of the great armies of
Europe. (Hear, hear.)
Fruits as Food and Medicine.
BY JXO. STAIN BACK WIL805, M. D.
Now that the fruit season will soon
be here, it will doubttess be interest
ing aud highly useful to our readers
to learn something of the nutriveness,
digestibility, wholesomeness, medicin
al action, and proper use of the fruits
and vegetables with which God has
so abundantly blessed our earth. Bat
while they are blessings, they, like
many other blessings, have been con
verted into curses through the igno
rance and perversity of mankind. Yet
the fruit kingdom affords an almost
endless variety of delicious and whole
some food, and, iu many cases, the
best of medicines, when properly
Dr. Paris truly says: "Were we
to form an opiuiou of their value from
their abuse, we should certainly be
rather disposed to class them under
the head of poisons than of aliments."
Now let us inquire .why this is so.
Is it hecause most fruits are unwhole
some in themselves? or is it because
they are improperly used ? Evident
ly the latter is the true reason. A be
neficent Providence never intended to
afflict, but to bless, the human fami
ly by giving them a bountiful supply
of fruit pleasant to the eye and sweet
to the taste. What, then, is the trou-
4Ie? How comes it that such bless
ings are perverted till they may be
compared with the
" Fi uit of that forbidden tree,
Whose mortal taste brought
Death into our world,
And all our woe" f
The great error in the use of fruits
consists in crowding the stomach with
them when it is already full ; in eat
ing them al all times between meals
when there is no natural demand nor
desire for them. When taken along
with food, as food1 in moderation, or
as a desert, when the stomach is not
over full, they are highly conducive
to health ; and, as the writer quoted
above very truly says, "they appear
to be providentially sent at a season
when the body requires that coolii g
aud antiseptic aliment which they are
so well calculated to afford." The
correct rule for the use of fruits is to
use them moderately between meals,
and at meals, as a part of the meal, or
as a dessert, when the stomach is not
overloaded with other food. Though
desserts are, as a general thing, ob
jectionable, because taken when the
stomach is already full, fruits are
much more wholesome, r hen taken in
this way, than the pastries, cakes, etc.,
generally used as desserts.
Let us now briefly pass in review
the different kinds of fruit, consider
ing them in relation to nutriveness,
Of all the fruits with which we are
blessed, the peach is the most deli
cious and digestible. There is noth
ing more palatable, wholesome and
medicinal than good, ripe peaches.
They should be ripe, but not over
ripe and half rotten ; and of this kind
they may make a part of either meal,
or be eaten between meals ; but it is
better to make them a part of the reg
ular meals. It is a mistaken idea
that no fruits should be eaten at
breakfast, or before breakfast. It
would be far better if oar people
would eat less bacon and grease at
breakfast, and more fruit. In the
morning, there is an acrid state of the
secretions, aud nothing is so well cal
culated to correct this as cooling sub
acid fruits, such as apples, peaches,
etc. Still, most of us have been taught
that eating fruit before breakfast is
highly' dangerous. How the idea
originated I know not; but it is cer
tainly a great error, contrary both to
reason and facts.
Plums are less digestible than peach
es, on account of their pulp; and all
pulpy stone fruits are more or less in
digestible, in proportion to the quan
tity of this pulp, which is likely to
cause fermentation, resulting in diar
rhoea. This is a frequent trouble in
children, who often eat them half ripe,
and who frequently swallow them
pulp, seeds and all. The juice alone
should be taken into the stomach, and
this is wholesome.
The apple is one of the best of fruits.
Baked or stewed apples will general
ly agree with the most delicate stom
ach, and are an excellent medicine in
many cases of sickness. Green or
half-ripe apples, stewed and sweeten
ed, are pleasant to the taste, nourish
ing, cooling and laxative, being far
preferable, in nsany cases, to the
abominable doses of salts and oil usu
ally given in fevers and other diseas
es. Raw apples, and dried apples
stewed are better for constipation than
most liver pills.
Oranges are very acceptable to most
stomachs, having all the advantages
of the acid alluded to; bnt the juice
alone should be taken, rejecting the
The same may be said of lemons,
pomegranates, and all that class.
Lemonade is the best drink in fevers;
and when thickened with sugar, is
better than syrup of squills and other
nauseous drags, in many cases of
Tomatoes act on the liver and bow
els, and are much more pleasant and
safe than blue mass and "liver regu
lators." The juiee should be used
alone, rejecting the skins.
The small -seeded fruits, such as
black trries, figs, raspberries, straw
berries, grapes, etc., may be classed
among the best foods and medicines.
The sugar in them is notricious, the
acid is cooling and purifying, and the
seeds are laxative. We would be
much the gainer if we wonld look
more to our gardens and orchards for
our medicines, and less to our drug
stores. To core a fever or act on the
kidneys, no febrifuge or diuretic is
superior to watermelons, which may,
with very few exceptions, be takeu iu
sickness and in health, in almost un
limited qualities, not onlv without in
jury, but with positive benefit. But
a . i fi a -
in using them, the water or juice
should be taken, excluding the pulp ;
the melons should be fresh aud ripe,
bnt net over-ripe and stale.
Id another article I may have some
thing to say of peas, beans, nuts; cab
bages, col lards, etc.
A Brave Young Man. At Cor
ney Island, Wednesday, a little
daughter of Henry Benedict, of Phil
adelphia, whilst playing on the beach,
was struck by a high wave and car
ried off her feet. The father and an
other daughter, who were iu a car
riage, plunged into the water to save
the child, but in an instant all their
lives were in peril. At this juncture
Charles H. Bi liars, aged 19 years, a
Newark bookkeeper, plunged, into
the water and reached the girls, who
had floated some distance. He swam
with them until he reached a footing
on the sand, and dragged them be
yond the breakers. Bi liars dashed
in again and succeeded in dragging
the father to land, and then he fell
unconscious. Several persons arrived
in time to lift the form of the gallant
lad and rub him to consciousness.
Bi liars modestly refused to accept a
money compensation, when Mr. Ben
edict pressed upon him a superb gold
repeater, which he took from his
Docket, with a omhl chain and seals

Helena, Mont., June 27. At 3
o'clock Saturday morning while the
coach from Deer Lodge for Helena
was crossing the main ridge of the
Rocky Mountains, 18 miles west of
this city, two men with haukerchiefs
tied across the lower part of their
faces, stepped from the bushes and or
ed the driver to halt. John McGr
mick, a post-trader at Fort Missoula,
was on the box with the driver and
drawing a six-shooter quicky opened
fire on the highwaymen. One was
badly hurt and crawled back into the
bush. The other returned McCor
raick's fire aud seriously wounded one
of the horses. The other team took
fright and ran and was soon out of
the range of the robbers. Three oth
er passengers were on board but were
unharmed. The treasure box was on
the coach following the one attacked.
Cubing Cloveb. Iu curing clo
ver the sun is only necessary to wilt
it after cutting. Wheu this is well
done, the clover should be put in
cocks, sn.all at the base, but as high
as they can well be made. The cocks
may be tramped some in making. In
a day or two they become hot within
and must be opened out, but not un
til all dew and raiu has dried off.
Take the cock down in flakes without
shaking to pieces, aud expose to the
sun. After being thus exposed for
an hour or two, the clover can be re
moved to the stack or mow. Each
layer in the stack should have a light
sprinkling of salt.
The Philadelphia medical ghoul,
Hathaway, M. D., was in the habit of
feeding dogs on dead Ladies. His
wife says : "Large and ferocious
hounds were in the cellar, andyou
could hear them gnawing and tearing
the tender flesh from the little bones.
The brutes were allowed to feast on
more than one human body, and they
seemed to relish the awful meal."
This beats the Tewksbury tanning.

In speaking of hands we mean hands

the average value of agricultural imple

$15, Mississippi $15, South Carolina $12
and Alabama $12. That gives an idea of
how the matter stands at the South. The
tools to the hand are worth between $12
At the North and West a different pic
ture is presented. In Pennsylvania the
average value of agricultural tools to the
hand is $125; in New Jersey $125; Min

Ohio $75. '1 he difference is evident. Those
who have the best tools can do the best

tools costing but $12 compete with others
whose tools cost $125 f lo not the lat

more and they are worth more. Let our
