We worked through spring am! "inter,

But the mortgage worked the banket and

It worked on nights and Sundays, it worked
It settled down among us, and it never went
Whatever we kept from it seemed almost as
bad as theft;
It watched ns every minute, and it ruled us
right and lett.
Tit- rust and blight were with lissome times,
and sometimes not;
The dark-browed, scowling mortgage, was
forever on the spot.
The weevil and the cutworm, they went as
well as came;
The mortgage stnyed forever, eating hearty
nil the same.
It nailed up every window, stood guard at
And happiness and sunshine made their
place with us no more.
Till, with failing crops and sickness, we got
stalled upon the grade,
And there came a day upon us " hen the
interest wasn't paid:
And there came a sharp foreclosure, and 1
kind o' lost my hold.
And grew weary and discouraged, and the
farm was cheaply sold.
Anjl the children left and scattered, when
they hardly yet were grown;
My wife she pined and perished, and I found
What she died of was a “mystery, and the

But 1 knew.she. died of mortgage—just as

The more a newspaper man exerts
his ability to please a whimpering
public, the more good lie docs for a
town, the more charitable lie becomes,
the more lie is criticized. Speaking
of this a writer said: “The man who
cau run a newspaper without being
Criticized^ censured and threatened
has never been found, lie has a
barren ideality, beautiful to think
about, but incapable of taking on
mortality and associating with vulgar
humanity. It is as impossible for him
to please everybody as it is for
everybody to please him, and the
sooner lie makes up his mind to this
stubborn fact the better for every
body 'concerned. If lie works
hard for public good, he receives
private censure; if he compliments
merit, he is censured by jealous do
merits; if he approves morality, he is
curscd|hy immorality; if he tries to he
fair, he is censured by the unfair; it
he makes a mistake, few are found
to overlook or apologize for him. No
matter how good his motives may be,
how innocent his purpose or how
studied his writings, he is picked to
pieces, misrepresented, maligned,
ridiculed, sometimes linked and sel
dom ever defended. lie works from
twelve to fifteen hours a day for a
hare living, while other men get rich
around him. He works up a mar
riage notice many yards long to til?
cjuccu’s taste for nothing, and is threat
cned with a libel suit or a duel if he
records a drunken spree of the groom
six months afterwards. Yes, it 'is
impossible, we repeat, for a newspaper
man to please everybody. As well
attempt to chain the wind or stop the
A Good Man.
“There,” said a neighbor, pointing
to a village carpenter, “there is a man
who has done more good, I really be
lieve in this community than any
other person who ever lived in it. lie
cannot talk very much in public, and
he does not try. lie is not worth
82,000, and it is very little lie can put
dowu on subscription papers. But a
new family never moves into the
village that he does not find them a
welcome and offer them some service.
He is on the lookout to find strangers
a scat in his pew at church. lie is
always ready to watchwith a sick neigh
bor and look after bis affairs for him. i
believe he and his wife keep house
plants in winter nmiuly that they may
be able *to send little bouquets to
friends and invalids, lie finds time
for a pleasant word to every eliili^he
meets and you’ll always see them climb
ing into his one horse wa on when he
has no other load. He has a genius
for helping folks and does one good
to meet him in the streets.--.St, Louis
Dr. Talmagc tells us that during
the afternoon of the Johnstown disas
ter Kbmebody heard an iufidcl pray as
follows: “OGod, if yon can give me
any oid at this time I will he very
much obliged to you.”
Only a few months ago these romplns, rosy-
checked lasses were puny, delicate, pale, slcKly
pirls. By the aid of I)r. Pierce’s world-famed
Favorite Proscription, they have blossomed
out into beautiful, plump, hale, hearty, strong
“Favorite Prescription” is an invigorating,
restorative tonic and as a regulator and pro
moter of functional action at that critical
period of change from girlhood to woman
hood, it is a perfectly safe remedial agent, and
can produce only good results. It is care
fully compounded, by an experienced and
skillful physician, and adapted to woman’s
delicate organization. Tt. is purely vegetable
in its Composition and perfectly barmless in
any condition of the system. It imparts
strength to the whole system. For over
worked, “ worn-out,” “run-down,” debilitated
teachers, milliners, dressmakers, seamstresses,
“shop-girls,” housekeepers, nursing mothers,
and feeble women generally, Dr. Pierce’s
Favorite Prescription is the greatest earthly
boon, being unequnled as an appetizing cor
dial and restorative tonic. It is the only
medicine for women, sold by druggists, under
n positive intarantcc from the manufacturers,
that it will give satisfaction in every case,
or monev will be refunded. This guarantee
has been‘faithfully carried out for many years.
