It was a foulh-western road, running

old mother lived ; at Z. I had the sweetest
little wife under the sun, and a baby or
two; and I .also had u dollar or to- put by
for a rainy day. I wss an odd kind of tt
man. Being shut up with the engine,
watching with all your eyes tnd heart and
soul, inside and out, don’t make a man
Mv wife's name was Josephine*, and I
called her Jo Some p ople thought me
unsociable, and couldn’t understand how
a yuan could feel friendly without saying
ten words an hour. So, though I had a
few old friends—dear ones, too—l had uot
as acquaintances as most peop'e, aud
dtd not care.to have. The house that held
my wife and babies was the dearest place
on earth to mu eAcept the other bouse that
held my old mother up at A.
I’d never belonged to a dub, or mixed
myself up with strangers in any sneh way,
and never should, if it hadn’t Jjeen fur
Granby. You see Grauby was one of the
shart-holders, a handsome, showy fellow.—
1 liked to talk *.o him, aud we were fiends.
He ofen ratio from T. to A., and hack
again, with me, and once he said :
‘‘You ought to belong lo tlio Scientific
“Never heard of it,” said I.
“I am a member,’’ said he, -AVe meet
'once a fortnight, and have a jolly good
t me. Wo want thinking men like you.
We have some amongst us now. I'll pro
pose you, if you like.”
I was fond of such things, and I had
id as that I fancied nrglit be worth some
thing. But then an engineer don’t have
too many nights or days to himself, and
the club would take one evening a fort
night from Jo I said :
“I’ll ask her. If site likes it, yes.”
“Ask wlnin ?” sad he.
“J 0.,” said I.
“If every man had asked liis wife, every
man’s wife would have said, ‘Can’t spare
you, my dear,’ and we should have had do
cltfii at all," said Grandv.
But I made no answer. At home I told
Jo. She said : .
‘,l shall truss you, Ned ; bul you'do love
such things, and then if Mr. Granby be
long-', they must be superior in’on,"
“No doubt," said I,
“It isn’t everybody who could he made
a member, said Jo. “Why, of course
30U must say yes.”
tie I sa:d “yes,'’ and Granby proposed
mo. Thursday fort ight I went with him
to the rooms. There were some men with
brains there, some without. Tlie real bus

I'd alway-t UetMi a temperate man. 1 ac
tually did net know what effect wine would
have upon me; but coming to drink more
of it thau I ever had before at tlie club ta
ble, If and it put the steam on. Af er so
many glasses I waited to talk ; after so
many more I did.
It seemed like somebody else, the words
were so lofifiy My little ideas came out
and wero listened to. I math; sharp hits ;
I indulged in r partee; I told stories ; I
even came to puns. I heard somebu ly
say to Granby; ‘By Geo’go, that’s
a man worth knowing ! I tliopgld liini
dull at first.’ Yet I knew it was better to
be quief Ned Guelden, with liis ten words
an hour, than the wine-made wit I was.
I was sure o£ it when, three hours after,
I stumbled up stairs nt homo to find Jo.
waiting lor nte, with her babe on her breast.
‘‘You’ve been deceiving me,” said Jo.
T’ve suspected it, but 1 wasn’t sure. A
scientifiic club couldn't smell like a bar
“Which means I do,” said I, waving in
the middle of the room like a signal flag at
a station, and seeing two Jos.
‘’And look like one,” said J 0..; and she
went and locked herself and the baby in
the spare bed-room.
Oa club night, as I was dressed to go,
Jo. s ood before me.
“Ned,” said-she, “I never had a fault to
find with you before, I’R say that. You’ve
been kind, and good, and loving always ;
but I should be sorry we ever met il yon
were to go on this way. IXn’t ask mo
what I mean. You know.''
‘Jo.,” said I, “it’s only cn club nights.”
“It will grow,” said she.
Then she put her arm about my neck.
“Ned,” said she, “do you think a
a thing so much like a bottled-up and
strapped-down demon us steam is, is fit to
be put into the bands of a drunken man ?
And some day, mark my words, the time
wiH come when not only Thursday nights,
but all the days of the week will be the
same. I’ve often beard you wonder what
the feelings of an engineer who has a! out
the same as Inurdercd a train lull of peo

blop where you are. A steady hand and
a clear head have been your blessings all
these years. Don’t throw them away,

My little Jo. ! She kpoke ftom her
heart, and T bent over her and kissed her.
“Don’t'be afraid, chi'd,”X said; “I’ll
never pain you ngmir”
And l meant it, but at twJve that night
I fell that I had forgotten the promise and
"l cWfldu't go home to Jo. I made tip
my mind to sleep on the club sofa andleave
the place for good next day. Already I
fit my brain reel as it never bad before
lb an hour I was in a kiud of stupor.
It was liicrning. A waiter stood ready
to brush my coat. 1 saw a grin on bis
black face. My head seemed about to

After all it was easy enough. I reeled us

Suddenly there was a horrible roar—a

to the water. By a niirracle, I w»s only
sobered, not hurt. I gained the shore ; I

at my work.

The news bad gone back to A n and
people oatuo thronging down to fiud their
friends. The dead wire streebed on the

to find their lort ones. Searching for an
old man’s daughter, I oame to this: a place

“There he goes abeut the train again,”
b'-iid my wife. “Why, Ned.”
I tried to move,—there was nothing ihe

“I'll steal the heart of the old man's dsrlrr.”—
A young grooer of gord character aud
oorreet habits, commenced business in n
good and improved neighborhood. iTis
Htock was small as Wore h’a means, and his
stock of customers still muailor. . Jtiia sales
hardly met his esper sts, and was evi
denfly going “Juwn hill,” aud an old grocer
on the opposite corner, predicted that ho
would soon be at tha bottom.
The young grocer had reason to regret
this opinion of tho old grocer, as will ap
pear. The latter ha 1 a daughter that had
won the heart of tho former. Ho oft red
himself to her and was
done however, with tho assurance that he
was the man of her cheioo. and that she
acted in obedience to her fathera commands.
Assured of the affections of the woman of
his choice, ho set himself about removing
tho obstacle in the way of their union—the
fathor’s objection to bis pecuniary prospects.
A “presto change” conies orcr them both.
A year elapsed, and lo ! what, a ohauge !
The young grocer now going tip hill, with
ilto power of a steam locomotive, customers
flocked to his storo from all quarter-, nnd
even many had loft the old established
stand on tho opposite oorucr, for tho young
favorite. There was a mystery übout it
which puzzled the old grooer si rely, and
which he could not unravel. He at length
became uearly sick with losses and aggrtiva
tions and with vain attempts to discover the
secret of bis neighbors snceet?.
“I’ll relent—come to my arms I" (Never written )
At this juncture, Angelica (for that was
rbo daughter’s namrj contrived to bring
about an apparently accidental interview be
tween the parties. Alter the old man had
beooma, through tb j intervention of the
daughter, tolerably good humored, he in
quired with great earnestness of the young
man tow he had contrived k> effect so much
ia one year, to thus extend bi3 business, oud
draw off the customers from the older
Tho young naan evaded an answer; but
Inquired if he bad any further objections to
his union with Angelica.
“None," replied he, “provided you reveal
the secret of your success to me.”
This the young mai promitod, when his
happintss was made complete. The old man
commended his prudence on this point.
Tho affair was settlcd,aßd the marriage soon
“A secret most misterious.” —[duller il- 01-uh
customers of the two stores- Angelica and
Thomas looked as happy and as well as
could he, and the old gentleman was, if pos
sible, happier titan they The weding take
was about to be cut, when the old man call
ed out for the cecret.
“Aye, the secret— the secret 1" exclaimed
“It is a very simple matter,” said Tl.onias
Tlie old man was a very old fashioned
man, and while ho shooK Thomas hourtily
by the hand , and kissed Angelica fifty times
over, he merely muttered, “Why the dick
ens didn’t I think of that ?’ !

A Ridhmond, Virginia, corespondent of
the New York Times states that a gentleman
iu opo of the iufccrior counties of the Old Do-
recently, whil-t having a ditch dug
diseftvered a quan'ity el’ stono resembling
the Pouto or Mid Sit-no, Ho reHt pieces
of it to a physician iu Halifax, with the re
quest that he would give it a trial. No
case of hydrophobia preset.ted it self; hut
one day last week a negro man while gath
ering hay in a fidd was bitteri by a copper
headeg snake. ThoDegro immediately tied
his suspender tightly around the arm, abovo
the bite, and swiftly sought the aid of iho
physician. When he arrived at tho office
his amt was already greatly Swolcn and
gave him great join, although but a very
short time had elapsed since the bit©. The
physician promptly applied the Mad Stone,
wnioh adhered firmly to the arm for several
moments when it dropped off. Tho pain
of the wound was Oontlderahly assuaged.
Tho stono was soaked in warm water aßd
again applied. It was not long before it
dropped off agaiD, and the third time, it ad
hered but a moment, the bandage was re
moved from his arm, atid the negro returned
to his work, the bite was’ now hannhsi, al
though less than tw«| hours after the snake
had struck him.
If the stone thus extrao.s tho poison from
the bite of a snake as it does from that of a
rabid and why may it not do the same
tbiog iu other cases of poison, reasoned the
physician. Experimenting further lie sub
sequently applied it to venereal blossom
with the same result.
It is believed that ehlsidfSnMe quantities
of the Mad Stone are to bi: feund wttere tost
the Doctor, in this case,had, came from.' If
this be so, steps ought to be takoa te place
