TENDERNESS OF MR. CORLISS.
The Great Engineer Delayed a building to
Allow the Birds a Chance.
Mr. Corlis-s, the great engineer, not
very long before his death had occa
sion to build an addition to his manu
factory—a big “L” tor additional ma
chinery. To prepare the foundation
for this L, it was necessary to remove
a ledge of rock by blasting. The men
to do the work on the addition had
been employed and put on the pay
roll; the materials had been purchased
andjbrought to the building, and the
work of blasting had begun. The
next morning Mr. Corliss passed by
the place where work was proceeding,
when the foreman in charge, knowing
his interest in pretty things, called
“See here, Mr. Corlisn," said he.
“here is a bird's nest that we’ve
found, and that’s got to go.”
He showed the manufacturer a rob
in sitting upon a nest that bad been
built fast and snug in the cre
vice of the rock, among some bushes
that grew there. The bird (lew oil
her nest as the men came near, and
showed five blue eggs that looked as
if they had just been laid.
“Can we move that nest somewhere
else ?” asked the tender hearted Mr.
“I’m afraid not, sir. We'd tear it
to pieces getting it out, and it isn’t at
all likely that you coidd get the bird
to go sittiug again anywhere else.
We’ve got to go on, so we may as
well rip it out and throw the eggs
“No,” said Mr. Corliss. “We won’t
disturb her. Let her bring her brood
out rigliP there.”
“But we’ll have to stop work on
“Let us stop it, then.”
And so orders were given that oper
ations on tho addition should he sus
pended. They were suspended, and
the hands stood still, drawing their
pay for doing nothing, or next to
nothing, while the robin sat on her
nest with an air of great consequence
and zealous attention to business, and
her food brought by her mate, and at
last hatched her brood. And then
there were three weeks more to go by
at least, before the young ones could
fly. .Corliss visited the nest frequent
ly, not with any uneasiness or impa
tience to have the lobin and the
young ones nut of the way, but with a
genuincj interest in their growth.
The old birds bad all the time they
wanted; and when at last they bad
helped tbejelumsy, reluctant young
sters over the edge of the nest, orders
were given to resume the building
A Kansas paper gets oil the follow
“One of our .Sunday school teach
ers on a recent occasion told her pu
pils that when they put their pennies
in the contribution box she wanted
each one to repeat f Bible verse suit
able for the occasion. Tho first boy
dropped in a penny saying: “The
Lord loveth a cheerful giver.” The
next boy dropped bis cent saying:
“He that giveth to the poor lendeth
to the Lord.” The third hoy dropped
his penny saying: “A fool and his
money arc soon parted.”
A design for a new postage stamp
has been prepared by a St. Louis
printing house and sent broadcast
over the country tor approval. It is
a green stamp, two inches square and
contains the portrait of John L. Sulli
van, the slugger. On the top are the
words: “U. S. Our Country’s Cham -
pion,” and on the bottom: “Too Big
to Be Licked.”—Lx.

‘•WHAT MEDICINES ARE RIOST
atked the reporter of an old druggist.
” Dr. Pierce's preparations,” lie replied.
‘•They are sold under a ponitlvo guar
antee that they will, in every case, giv<
satisfaction, or the money is promptly re
funded. His ‘Favorite Prescription/ for nil
those chronic weaknesses, nervous and other
derangements peculiar » t women, is used with
unfailing success. It cures weak back, bear
ing-down sensations, irn-gularitirs and weak
nesses common to the sex, and being the
most perfect of tonic medicines builds up
nnd strengthens the entire system. Tho de
mand for it is constant, ami I am conversant
with scores of cases cured by it.”
Returning after a few moments’ al>sence,
the venerable wielder of the pestle romurked,
“the number of sarsaparilla* ami other, so-
called, ‘blood medicines' is legion; but I)r.
Pierce's Holden Medical Discovery outsells
them all and it is the only blond-pwriflcr out
of the many which I am obliged to keep upon
my shelves, that, is guaranteed to benefit or
cure in all cases for which it is recommended,
or money paid for it is refunded.”
“ In the line of Pills,” remarked the old gen
tlemen, “the little Sugar-coated ‘Pellets’
put up by Dr. Pierre lead all othe rs, both in
amount of sales and the general satisfaction
they give my customers.”
