THE OLD CLOCK IN THE CORNER. ,:- Of the morn of Hfo—long years ago— We've memories sweet tvnd tender, In days when youthful hopes were bright, And means were small and slender; "When summer's heat and winter's cold Were met und passed by lightly, 'When friendships dear brought welcome cheer, . , "When evening lamps shona brightly; 'When at the lading hours each day The old clock in the corner ticked away— When the old clock ticked in the corner. The present Is ours, with health and friends. With blessings new each morning, With bread and meat each day'to eat, And for comfort and adorning, Apparel to wear, enough and to spare. In cold or sultry weather. ^. And whether It snows, or rains, or blows, What matters when we gather Where lamps fresh trimmed burn clear and bright, While the pendulum swings to left and right— And the old clock ticks in the corner. Then let us forward look with faith In planning future duties; Let's seek out pleasant walks and ways, New life, new loves, new beauties; Pill heart and soul with noble thought, Swell voice with joyous chorus, .: Walking ahead with steady step, Along the way before us; .Then, now and hence, going hand-iu-liand .'While the cloeh ticks oil Time's hour-glass . ' sand— . , While the old clock ticks in the corner. —Good Housekeeping. WITH TEE DBDMMEES.. iTaleg They Tell of Lifa on the RoacL |j|?- -A. G»y Chicago Drummer Who Exchanged " H " One of His Own Teeth for a Lady's— How It Changed His Tastes — Other Amusing Incidents. "Well, yes, I might relate something |j'that is rather extraordinary," said a l^iflrummer for a Chicag-o boot and shoe '|K [house to'a Chicag-o Herald reporter, "if ^sv.jyou,. will pardon me for narrating a pystory-which chiefly concerns myself. 1 %;.|-was down in a Central Illinois town ||j-drum:mrng up trade one day when I Jfr'i'wa.s attacked with the toothache. I had p:j»n unsound tooth that had troubled me jlyjfor quite awhile and I determined to jg-jhave done with it then and there. I l^'soug-ht a dentist's chair and told him to " .T^ull it out. He tried to convince me «hat several dollars' worth of g-old fill- tog- would make it good as new, but my ,'ire was roused and I was bent on hav- ^Ing- reveng-e. I would not bo satisfied Win I had convinced that tooth that I ^ could do without it. So I commanded j^Jtumto pull it oiit, and with protesta- ;.v*tions he reluctantly did so. It occupied g^ ithe place that this tooth does," said the " .'traveling- man, tapping- one of his incisors, "and when it was once out I saw that I looked so strangely that some- •ihing else must take its place as soon «s possible. I asked the dentist if he Tiad nothing else he could put in the 'f-jplace of it as I did not like my appear.• 'Mice at .all. He was thoughtful for a nt, when a light seemed to dawn :; |6n~hi9mind. He took from a cabinet a ^Jbottie -in which was a tooth immersed -£$n a liquid of some kind. 'I have here,' * tc remarked, 'a -good, sound, healthy >^ooth that will almost exactly match K the rest of yours, that I can plant in. the ^one just extracted and it will- grow as I'lhough nothing- had happened.' He per- f me, without much opposition on t -my part, that it would be better than a |-ialse tooth, and it was the work of only: £» few moments for him to put it in place, fit was sore for a short time but soon • finn,and solid, and to-day it is as a tooth as I have. 'But now for the stranger part of the |story. Before the dental operation I r«peak of was parfonned I had been ad^dieted to the use of tobacco. I smoked j?and chewed almost to excess. Prom Hthe day I got my new tooth my love for ttobacco began to decrease, and by the ^ttme the tooth had become firm and Bsolid I couldn't use the weed at all A |chew of tobacco or smoking a cigar §made me very sick. ' In fact I became eopposed to the use of tobacco generally pand have remained so till the present nday. But as my love for tobacco waned siny love for chewing- gum increased, and pPm never without it now. I "became ^passionately fond of ice-cream also, and iStiring the summer season I can scarcely get enough of it, and a strange f eat- *ure of the case is I want some other •man to.pay for it. There seems to be .something about that tooth that makes me crave for ice-cream. It is with great difficulty I can pass a millinery store Without going in _and pricing all the goods in stock. Sometimes, when I'm in. a great hurry to catch a train, I find myself stopping in front of some milliner's window to inspect the latest style bi bats. When I pass a lady wearing an attractive gown or hat on the street, It wouldn't matter if there were a mad j Bog after me, I'd stop and look around | to,see if her dress and hat were becoming 1 . It didn't tal*e me long to surmise 1 that the new tooth was in some way to iblame for my strange antics, and when ^yisited the dentist's town again I went to him and told him every thing. 'Oh,' paid he, 'it is even worse than I feared It would be. That tooth used to belong bo a young lady.'" • A CONDITIONAL SUKRENDEK. ( ^"TJp in a little town in Wisconsin," •smarted a trade seeker whose sample inse boars the name of a Chicago frocery house, "there used to be two nerchants who. hated each other as | hey hated poison. They were both re- ired farmers who had gone into busi- iess to while their time away as much » to make moaey. Their stores were fcectly across -a little open square iipm each other, and, trade being very- row, they had plenty of time- to watch •oh other. They were opposed to . wjli other in business, religion and pol- ios. They 'avoided meeting on the kreet, and when they did meet they' sever spoke. Aside from the'hatred j iey bore each other they were genial,, j rlendly rain. Their friends used to try a^getthem to patch- up their troubles differences, but each,was firmly de- lined that the other must take the -„ step toward a reconciliation and ['^efforts to~ : amicably adjust matters, Finally one of the men bena.m» I very Hi. when told that death mio-ht come at any moment he expressed de- su-e that lie be permitted to makepeace with his enemy He. sent for him to come, and presently the two men who had hated each other for so long were brought face to face. 'We have been enemies for a long time,' said the sick man, 'but they tell me now that I am going to die, and if .1 do bear in mind that I forgive you.every thing you have evor said or done against me, but if I should by chance recover remember I'll keep up the fight just as bitterly as heretofore, and don't you forget it, 1 " MEET1XG AX EMERGENCY. ' "A rather peculiar incident occurred on a car in which I was riding out in Iowa a few days ago," said one of Chicago's commercial tourists. "On the car was a lady and her four-year- old boy. He was a sweet, attractive little fellow and. at once became the favorite of all the passengers, who bestowed a great deal of attention upon him. He wore a neat little fur-trimmed overcoat, from which a button had become detached. As a matter of course the button found its way to the child's mouth. Suddenly the mother uttered a wild scream and the passengers were all greatly excited. The child's face jrew pale. It had swallowed that button. The mother exclaimed that her child was dyimg. There was no doctor on the train. What was to' be done? In this emergency, as in most all others, there was some one capable of meeting it. While everybody else were wringing their hands in helpless agony, one man, who under ordinary circumstances would not attract special attention, was cool and collected. While the other passengers told the mother to pound the child on the back, shake it, stand it on its head, and other nonsensical things, he told her to calmly wait a minute and all would be right Taking a piece of string from his left hand vest pocket he attached it to a button-hole, which he inserted in the child's mouth and induc*d it to swallow it There was a composed look on the man's- face that seemed to assure the rest of us that he knew what he was about, and he certainly did, for when he pulle« -the string and brought that button-hole to our view again there was the button in it, sure enough. In a few minutes everybody was laughing and chatting again, but tho calm, quiet man was looked upon as a hero for the rest of the journey." WHY HE LIKES WTXTEK "I'm glad winter is .here," remarked a bald-headed commercial man. "You can't imagine how the flies bother me during the summer. If it were not for the fact that my business keeps me here I believe I'd move to Labrador, where the fly season is not so serious an affair. I am so constituted that I must keep my head cool, and in warm weather I go bare-headed as much as possible. An artist friend of mine said he could paint a spider on my bald spot that would look so natural the flies would not dare to come near it. At first I laughed, at the idea, but as the season advanced and the flies became more troublesome I got desperate one day and told him to paint it. He did so, and you can believe it or not just as you like, but it fooled the flies every time. The moment I would remove my hat every fly in the vicinity would start for my head, but just as they were about to settle down they would see the spider and dart away in the wildest alarm. But for all that the scheme was not a success, for while it fooled the flies it also fooled other people. Every tune. I'd remove my hat everybody •would be slapping my head with all .their might trying to kill that awful spider before it had time to bite me. When I'd lift my hat to ladies on the street they would' see the insect and either shout 'murder' or faint away. And so I had to have it removed and fight the flies as before. But I tell you I enjoy whiter weather and hope it will last to the middle of August." AN ELOQUENT APPEAL. What a Horse Would Soy If Ho Could •Speak English. , Don't hitch .me to an iron post or rail- Ing when the mercury is below freez- fog. I need the skin on my tongue! Don't leave me hitched in my stall. at night with a big cob right where I must lie down. I am tied and can't select a smooth place. Don't compel me to eat more salt than I want by mixing it in my oats. I know better than any other animal how much I need. Don't think because I go free under the whip that I don't get tired. You would move up il under the whip. Don't think because I am a horse that iron, weeds an«l briars won'l'hurt, •my hay. Don't whip me when I get frightened along the road, or I will expect it next time and may be make trouble. Don't trot me up hill, for I have to carry you and the buggy, and myself, too. Try it yourself some time. Run up hill with a big load. Don't keep my stable very dark, for when I go out into the light my eyes are injured, especially if snow be on the ground. Don't -say Whoa, unless you mean it. Teach me to stop at that word. It may check me if, the lines break and save a run-away and smash-up. Don't make me drink • ice cold water, nor put a f rorty bit in my mouth. Warm the bit by holding it half a minute against my body. Don't forget to file my teeth when they get jagged and I can not c^ew my food. When I get lean it is a sign my teeth want -filing. Don't ask me to "back" with blinds on... I am afraid to. Don't run me down a steep hill, for if any thing should give way I might break your neck. Don't put on my blind-bridle so that it irritates my eye, or so leave my forelock that it will be in my eyes. Don't be so careless of my harness as to find a great sore on me before you attend to it. Don't lend me to some blockhead that has less sense than I have. - Don't forget the old book that is a friend to all the oppressed, that Sirs: "A merciful man is merciful to his beast."—Farm Journal. panzee of Cfia Intelligent tribe stole a drum from the huts of his Egyptian troops .and made off with it, beatin°- it as he ran. • . ° The monkey took the drum to the" headquarters of his own "people," who Were evidently mueh charmed with it for the Egyptian soldiw-s often heard the monkeys beating it vigorously but irregularly.

Stanley, in his new book. "Daikest Africa," says: Among the minor un- pleasantnesses whieh we had to endure we may mention the "jigger," which deposited its eggs under the toe-nails of the most active men, but which attacked the body of "goee-goee," and made him amass of living corruption; the little beetle which dived under the skin and pricked one as with a needle; the small »nd large ticks which assiduously Bucked one's small store of blood; tho wasps, which stung one into a raging .fever if some careless idiot touched the tree or shouted near their haunts; the honey-bees, which one. day scattered two canoe crews, and punished them so that we had to 'send a detachment of men to rescue them; the tiger-slug, that dropped from the branches and left his poisonous fur in the pores of the body until one rArved from the pain; the red ants, that invaded the camp by night and disturbed our sleep, and attacked the caravan half a score of times on the march and made the men run faster than if pursued by so many pigmies; the black ants, -which infested the trumpet trees and dropped on us while passing underneath, and gave us all a foretaste of the Inferno; the small ants that invaded every particle of food, which required great care lest we might •Wallow half a dozen inadvertently and have the stomach membranes perforated or blistered—small as they were they were the most troublesome—for in every tunnel made through the bush thousands of them housed themselves upon us, and so bit and and stung us that I have seen the pioneers covered with blisters as from nettles; and, of course, there were our old friends, the mosq uiioeii, in numbers in the greater sloarings.- -Interior. The Only Way In Which Mutton-Making Can Be Made to Pay. The only theory that prime mutton can only be had from 3 and 4-year-old wethers has exploded. Indeed, 3-year- olds now are rare. One-year-olds seem to be growing numerous every year and are becoming the staple mutton of the country, notwithstanding it was once thought that sheep could not be put in first-class order at that age. Everybody goes in for early m'aturity, and probably it is only by so doing that mutton- Making can.be made to pay, excepting, of course, in the case of old ewes, which make up a portion of the fat sheep killed every vear, and which may, under 'certain circumstances, leave a good profit for fattening. Nothing is more certain than that the age at which sheep can be fattened is being constantly lessened. During recent years the fat stock clubs have been compelled to entirely recast their prize liste. Classes of lambs have been instituted and they have become the leading feature among the fbeep classes. These illustrations of early maturity are too strong logic for old-style feeders, who hold the opinion tnat an animal must have completed its growth of frame before it can be properly fattened. Alternate fatting and starving will no longer pay in the -process of making a certain weight of meat from a certain quantity of food, and the system of carrying on animals to a certain age on merely sustenance diet before commencing- to fatten them is also proven to be unprofitable feeding: These methods may ba pursued in the case of coarse, ill-bred sheep that are ' slow to fatten, but they will not suit improved breeds that lay on flesh early, and with food so adjusted meet th$ wants of nature that there shall be no check in growth from birth to maturity. It has been alleged that a sheep aged two years yields a greater or heavier quantity of flesh than a sheep one year old, but this is a fallacy. It is now ascertained that a 'sheep from its birth till one year old makes as much flesh "as one double that age, provided the sheep be fed carefully, plentifully and methodically—that is to say—that there is no stoppage in the rations.—Sheep Breeder of Scotland.

JAn African Story Accredited to Kmin I Pasha. ; Emin Pasha, the story of'whose res- jcue from Central Africa is well known to the -world, is an enthusiastic student iOf natural history, and had made a collection at his headquarters on the Upper -Nile, which he was compelled to •abandon. One of the objects of his interest in the equatorial province was a species of chimpanzee, and Mr. Stanley tells -some remarkable, -stories regarding- Emm's observations. According'. v to Stanley's account, the equatorial chimpanzee is not greatly the inferior in intelligence of some of the human beings found there. The forest of .Msongrva is infested by a tribe, of chimpanzees of great statura, who make almost nightly raids on the villages and little plantations of the Mswa. natives, carrying away their bananas and other fruits. There ia nothing very remarkable about this fact, since many kinds of animals make pillaging forays upon the habitations of .men; but the-surprising'part of Emin's narrative is the statement that in these thieving raids .the cAimpanzees make :use of lighted torches to hunt out the '-fruit. • . . . ; "If I had liot myself been a witness ' of this spectacle,-" Mr. Stanley : reports Emin.as saying, "nothing- would ever have made me believe that any race of monkeys possessed the art of makin<r 'fire." ° .
