AW OLD MAX'S ADAGE.
When but a boy a man I met,
Who one good lesson taught me,
That has through all succeeding
years
Sweet consolation brought me:
This was the maxim which he gave
(You'll smile when I df clare it):
The pinching shoe grows easier
The longer that you wear it."
A homely proverb, I confess.
Yet priceless truth explaining,
And one that gives in trouble's hour
1'he strength for calm sustaining;
For every ill doth lighter 6eem
As more we learn to bea it
"The pinching shoe grows easier
The longer that you wear it.''
The care that is at first so great,
The onco overwhelming sorrow,
Will lesson ad the days go by
And morrow follows morrow:
Though great the force of rief may
bo,
Time will in part impair it
"The pinching choe grows easier
The longer that you'wear it."
Did time not bring thjs sure decrease
To bitterness and anguish.
How many, iany hopeJess hearts
In helpless woe would languish;
Ah, well it is we find it true,
How e'er with us may fare it.
"The pinching shoe grows easier
The longer that you wear it."'
Rev.Phiiip Burroughs Strong,
in Youth's Coloration.
ABOUT A TIDY.
An Old Ldy Faith and a Rich Wo
man Whim."
Mrs. Van Arsdale had always ap
peared to be a very frivolous woman.
She dressed so expensively, and, so
far as I could see, never did anv
thing useful with her life, not even,
as many other rich women do, taking
an interest in charities. Itsdoed, I i
heard her say once that she was pot
fitted for such work; that she was
not used to business, and that visit
ing very poor people made her ill. I
remember thinking, when I 'heard
this remark, that it was a more snb
terf use for laziness and unwilling
ness to do good. It is a habit of
mine to say nothing about such
thoughts to any one It certainly
does no good to speak of them, even
if what I think is true, and it may
do a geeat deal of harm. Thtre is
another woman who attends our
church. She is very old ar.d feeble
and poor. Her name is Mrs. Rich
mond. Until her only sou died,
about a year ago, she lived very
comfortable, lie was a clerk in a
large store down town, and when ho
died, that took away all the living
this poor woman had. I knew that
this was the cause, and, having Ten
little time, and 1 am not too proud
to admit it very little money, I
spoke to our clergyman about her.
"Mrs. Richmond," said he, "is a
very eccentric and peculiar woman.
I knew, of course, that her sou's
death had left her entirely destitute,
and I went to her with offers of
assistance. She is over eighty, and
too feeble to doauy thing to support
herself, but I found that 6he was
perversely bent upon refusing all
help. She said she had never liv
ed on charity yet, and that the Lord
would provide for hex somehow in
her old age. I replied, in substance,
that while this was so, and that 1
was glad to find her faith so strong,
she must remember that God used
human means to accomplish His
purposes, and that lie had sent me
to relieve her necessities. But she
was very obstinate. Her besetting
sin appeared to be pride, and she
persisted in declaring that she could
earn her own living, and that she
was determined to be a burden upon
nobody. As for goii.g into the Old
Ladies' Home, she wouldn't listen
to it. She had a room, she said,
where she was It was very com-
fortable, respectable and cheap. She
required very little to live upon, and
that she proposed to tarn. I asked
her how, and she told me by knit

how she does it, for the fancy arti
cles, my wife tells me, are so poorly
made that it was hardly possible
they would sell.
Soon after this I made time one
afternoon to go and see the widow.
It was as the minister had said.
Poor old woman. It made me sad
to see her, with her white face and
spectacles and shaking hands, hard
at word trying to crochet. When I
went there she was at work npon a
tidy, a sort of thing that was fashion
able once, but must be, I thought,
quite unsalable nowadays. Besides
that, because of her age and her
trembling fingers, she had done the
work all crooked. I couldn't imag
ine any one buying such a thing. I
askid no(questione (another habit I
have h never to ask a question that
may by any possibility wound, even
if t be another' pride or self-love,
unless, indeed, I am sure that the
wound will be of the friendly, faith
ful sort),bnt before I left, Mrs. Rich
mond told me how she spld her
things.
I am getting along so nicely, she
said, looking up from her work and
the tears starting to her eyes. The
minister didn't think I could get
along, she added, proudly, but I
have. I have as much as I can do
all the time, and sometimes even
have orders ahead. All I make I
leave at Mr. Pritehard's fancy store,
and he Jells them for me. I told
the minister that the Lord would
provide customers, and He has. You
see I knew the Lord better than he
did.
I went away wondering, for Priteh
ard's was a very fashionable and ex
clusive establishment indeed, where
nothing, I supposed, was ever sold
that was not of th? very best. He
made a specialty of "high art'' nee
dlework and such matters; so I was
not a little surprised a few days af
ter happening that way to see in
his elegant window, among the beau
tiful placqnes and panels and em
broidered fabrics, the identical tidy
all askew as it was, and labeled with
t lie price.
I hardly know what impelled me,
but I had the curiosity to go in.
Not being able to afford much in
the way of "high art," I seldom
purchased any thing of Mr. Pritch-
j ard but I go there very often with
frieuds who do, and" Mr. Pritchard
is always exceedingly civil.
Oh, that! that tidy in the window
do you mean? Then he began to
smile. I don't suppose you want to
buy it, do you?
"No."
"I thought not. Very often peo
ple inquire about the things in that
corner of the window. The fact is
his voice fell, there is a story about
rtiat tidy and a lot more of similar
things. It isn't known, and I
shouldn't like it to get out it might
lose my custom you know but I
will tell j'on in confidence how it
happened. "Of course" Mr, Pritch
ard's tone was a little contemptuous
1:0 one in hers senses would pay
three dollars for a thing like that,
unless perhaps in this case for a
whim. Well, over six months ago
an old woman came in here one day
with some things to sell. I was
waiting npon a lady, one of my best
customers, and it annoyed me to be
interrupted. The old man stuck and
and hung; as they say, wouldn't
take 'no' for an answer. After
awhile the lady began to take an in
terest. She looked over what ths
woman had in her basket the
queerest things you ever saw and
actually insisted upon buying a piu-
! cushion and a white rabbit made A
j flaunei with bead eves. She made
out to the old woman they were just
what she wanted for her children.
Then Mrs. Van Arsdale I started,

next day she came in very indig

seel thought it' an imposition on
Mrs. Van Arsdaie. The price for
the set, said the old woman, ought
pot to be a cent Ies3 than four dol-
lars. They took me every bit of four
days to make.. Now you put up the
price, said she, independent as you
please, or I'll go to some other place!
That was cool, wasn't it? I told
Mrs. Van Arsdale, but all she had
to say was: Let her fix the price to
suit herself. I'll make it good.
Send the things to my house, but be
careful she never knows.
I have thought of this story many
times since I heard it, and perhaps,
in its way, it is worthy of being jot
ted down. I have been careful nev
er to speak of it and the names are
of course changed, but the story it
self is true.
It does seem, after all," as if Mrs.
Richmond was right in the faith she
had that, m hile her own fingers pro
vided the fancy work, the Lord
would see about the customers. First
and last, by this time Mrs. Van Ars
dale must have paid several hundred
dollars for what some might consid
er a foolish whim ; but when I hear
of her at Newport and Saratoga, and
people say she is fond of society and
frivolous, I can not help remember

The Fight at Bali's Ranch.
In 1871, there lived near the western
boundary ofWise county aranebman
named Ball. His ranch was on the
extreme froLticr, and was often
harassed by roving bands of hostile
Indians. He was a kind and hospi
table settlev, and Baker's weary
scouts (the writer being one of the
num'cei) often rested ar.d feasted
beneath his roof. Fifty-two of us
had more than one hundred miles of
frontier to protect, and were wel
come guests to the these insolated
settlers. On r.i.e occasion, before
the couts, or Texas Rpugers, as we
were callei, we;e sent into that
country, a raiding band of Coman-
chies carried off on of Mr, Ball's
.1 11 i i. r
souh, a lau auout iweive jeius ui
age. He was only a ohort distance
from the house when captured, and
the father was unable to rescue him.
Mr. Ball knew from the waviig red
o'.ume in the chiefs head-dress that
it was "Red Cap," the terror of the
North wes', and after the Indians
left, mounted his horse and jjaye the
alarm. Clark Bailey and Shira re
sponded to thv call, and were soon
on the trail of the now retreating
Iudiaus, who had just taken a north
west course toward the "Wichita
Mountains. There were not enough
settlers to successfully fight "Red
Cap"' and his baLd, aud all that they
could do was to see if they had left
the country, in ordr to quiet the
fears of the people. For twelve
long months the parents heard noth
ing of their captive boy, and had
kbout given him up for lost, when
one day he walked into his father's
yard. His hair had grown long, and
his face was ko sunburnt that they
hardly knew him. He had a sad ex-
peii ence to :elate of 1 ai dhips which
had befallen bini wuiio a captive,
ne said the Indians traveled rapidly
at first, expecting pursuit, but after
crossing Red River traveled slowly
across mountnii-s and beautiful prai
lies, killing game as they journeyed,
until they reached a largo Iruian
village at the head of the Canadian
River, where they spent the winter,
The chief, "Red Crp," treated him
kindly, but the other Iodians abused
him very much, especially in the ab
sence or the great chief. He seemed
restless, and was constantly on the
war path, either flgairst the whites
or ether Indians who were hostile
to his tribe. While on one of these
raids some white traders entered
the Indian camp. They offered to
buy the white boy; and the Indians
readily consented, exchanging him
for such articles as suited their fancy.
When the chief returned the traders
and the boy were far. on their way
1 the frontier of Texas. "Red
Cap"' was furious, and threatened
vengeance on luose wno uau soia
the boy, and parley in the fall set out
with a large band to recapture him.
About 3 o'lock one evening they
arrived at Ball's ranch. So rspid
and secret had been their movements
after cross.ng the Texas line that
they were not discovered until ey

ing it to the head, discharged it full
in Bailey's breast. At the same in
stant there was a flash of a pistol,
and the chief fell dead in his tracks,
shot thpough the brain. Bailey was
determaned that this last shot should
find a victom, and at the same time
rid the country of a terrible scourge.
That shot was indeed his last. His
empty weapon dropped from his re
laxing grasp; he staggered forward a
few steps, and fell near the body of
the chsef. The lad, finding himself
again free, bounded off, and succeed
ed in gaining the spot where his
father and neighbors were loading
and firing upon the Indians. The
savages closed around the body of
Bailey, and took on! his scalp, and
then commenced their retreat carry
ing off the body of their chief. The
wife of Bailey was standing in the
the yard watching her husband's
desperate fight, and when he fell,
fainted away, and her life was almost
despaired of before she recovered
from the terrible shock. "Red Cap"
was buried at the head of a ravine
about a mile from the house, and
his horse killed by the grave. Aiter
the Indians left he was taken np by
the whites, and his accoutrements
divided anions: them.
While at Ball's ranch the writer
saw the blanket and pipe of "Red
Cap." His blood was still upon the
blanket. The pipe vvas made of
stone and would weigh more than
a pound. A. J. Sowell in Nashville

Tariff Kpform.
The object of a protective tariff is
to augment prices of a certain class
of goods that the government has
undertaken to protect by insuring to
the maker of such goods a profit on
his work. It means this or it means
nothing.
If, as some wild advocates of the
system assert, Such protection cheap
ens the goods it was meant to pro
tect, the whole projeot is as insane
as any dream of a lunatic.
Of course the interests protected
form only part of our great indus
tries. As the system is based on
the government to take from one
class and give to another, it is im
possible to protect all. The benefits

apply only to those engaged iu pro
ducing articles t home that come
in competition with like articles
abroad. This of course leaves out
all agricultural product, for these
we export. It omits from its list
the labor of nearly all mechanics,
for we do not import blacksmith's
work nor can wo purchase houses.
It leaves unprotected the profes
sions, male and female labor, and
even the workmen employed by the
very interests the government has
taken such extraordinary steps to
sustain.
On the contrary,the wage workers
jn niiue3 and manufactories have
felt the protective tariff only in their
increased cost of living," while their
compensation has kept no pace with
tue increased profit pocketed hy cap
ital.
To those who h ive fairy investi
gated his condition of so-called pro
tection the results have been to the
last extent startling. The operatives,
men and children, are reduced to an
extremity that sickens the heart to
I know and appreciate.
