Two long- cyged Tennesseeans were on guard .Uity. They kneeled to fire. "1 don't ss it's more than three hundred yards," said one, quietly.

The prisoner was running lilcc a deer, and rapidly approaching the undergrowth nround innumerable littlo liut.s, where lie would be safe. "Call it. four hundred," suggested the first Tennessoean. in a conciliatory tone. They adjusted thoir sights, aimed, and fired. The escaping convict foil, nnd the two Tennpsseenns wont, out to bring in what wns left, of him. "If he's hit in the head, it's my shot," said one.

Benjamin Davies, Esq., Canadian Government Agent, St. Paul, Minn., Dear Sir:—I have great pleasure In writing you these few lines to let you know how 1 like my new location and how I Imve been getting along since I left Southern Minnesota. 1 like this country well, the climate agrees with me and my family at all seasons, and taken all around it is away ahead of Minnesota. I may say that we have not had one storm yet this winter. As regards the prodnctives of the soil, I consider it beats Southern Minnesota. 1 am a practical farmer, but have never seen such vegetables in my life as I have seen raised here. As regards grain of all kinds, I have seen splendid yields, in fact any man who cannot get along here and make a good living cannot do if, anywhere. We have abundance of wood for fuel, timber for building, and lots of hay. I have got good water on my place about 24 feet. I have a good class of neighbors around me, and have been well used by everybody. I have been able to get lots of work for myself and team at fair wages, whenever I wanted it, and I think any one else can do the same. I would not care to return to Minnesota. 1 am, sir, yours very truly, (Signed) DENNIS TWOHEY.

Piso's Cure for Consumption is tho only cough medicine used in my house.— 1), U Albright, Minlinburg, Pa., Dec. 11, "J5. There* I guess that ought to bring , early tomorrow morning;" said Vtr. Jonathan Peabody, as he finished acking the card on the front door, and stood back to view his work. 'Boys are plentiful enough, but hey are so • trifling," he added, as he locked the door on the inside 'or the night. Uncle Jonathan, as his customers called him, had sold papers and periodicals from that little shop for twen- y years. The building was only one story, and contained two rooms; his shop and the one back of it which he .ised for a general living room. It stood on an 18 foot lot on a business street. As far as the eye could reach on both sides, towered buildings of brick and stone; but this little piece of ground belonged to an estate, and could neither be leased nor sold, until the youngest member of a large family if heirs became of age. With permission or without it, Uncle •onathan Had moved in there twenty 'ears before; no one had even been le- ;allzed to collect rent, and as he was favorite with every one. he had been allowed to remain year after year, without being molested. He must have laid by a tidy little sum, for he had only himself to care for; no one had ever heard anything about his having any relatives. Some said he was a miser, but he did not look it, with his clear, blue eyes, shining with kindliness, and the waving white hair which framed his face. The children in the neighborhood all knew better, for no one else was so generous with candy and rosy-cheeked apples as he. The shop contained two long counters, one on each side of the room. They were covered with an attractive array of illustrated papers and gaily covered magazines; and in holiday times there was a tempting array of Christmas cards and calendars. Along the walls hung pictures with a printed slip attached to each, bearing the inscription—"This beautiful engraving can be had with one year's subscription to the Fireside, etc." Business had been so brisk of late, that Uncle Jonathan had determined to get a boy to help him about the show and deliver packages. If he was smart and reliable he would pay him two dollars a week'to begin with, and if he proved satisfactory he would keep him all the time, and he began to feel the want of a little help. So he had printed the aforenamed card, and sat down to await results. It was a quarter past six when he repaired to If you were a boy you could carry papers you see; but a baby- "again he broke Into a hearty peal of laughter in which the baby joined, clapping his hands. "That's right, my little man; yott see the funny side, don't you* and sister mustn't cry," as he saw two big tears steal down the girl's face. "I'll tell you what we'll do. Come into the back room and We'll all have supper together and talk it over; the pudding is clone." The magic word pudding dried the tears, and while Uncle Jonathan busied himself putting on an extra blue and white plate, cup and saucer, and a pewter mug which he took from the top shelf of the cupboard, the child took off her own ragged jacket and hood, and released the baby from his Imprisonment in the gray shawl. "What is your name?" he asked. "Mary MacDonald, sir, and baby's name is Roderick." "Scotch;" said Uncle Jonathan. "That is good honest stock, isn't it, Thomas?" Thomas was making the most friendly overtures to the baby, who in turn, viewed him with round eyes of delight and wonderment, and made frantic grabs at ihe waving tail and the yellow eyes. But, withal, .Thomas was wary and managed to keep just out of his babyship's fingers. "Where Is—where is your mother?" Uncle Jonathan asked this question hesitatingly, for the children didn't show much evidence of a mother's care. "Mother died two weeks ago;" and Mary's voice broke. "And father, went away when Roddy was a tiny, little baby; and oh, sir,"—it seemed as if the warmth of the room and Uncle Jonathan's kindly manner had suddenly given her confidence—"I am too little to sew as mother did; you see, I am only eleven this winter, sir, and I can't earn any money. You said you wanted a boy. I thought Roddy might do, he is such a good little boy; he hardly ever cries. And If you would let me come and see him sometimes." By this time the tears were rolling; fast clown the child's excited face, and! something dropped with a big splash! into the pewter cup which Uncle Jon-, athan had taken up to fill with milk. ; "Come, come," he said, clearing his- throat two or three times; "we are' forgetting all about our supper. Come, Roddy, little man, if you are going to be my boy you must sit on Uncle Jonathan's knee and drink milk from thla nice cup. It's Thomas's milk, but' Thomas won't care; he'll hunt a nice, fat little mouse with a long tail for his supper." Ah! it was a merry supper; the gold-.

The room was scrupulously clean nnd cheerful. A rag carpet was upon the floor, a round table in the center covered with a bright, red tablecloth, and a lamp with a rosy shade cast a 'cheerful and mellow light upon all tho surrounding objects. He trotted back and forth, all the while talking to Thomas, a large, gray cat, that purred sociably and rubbed against his legs in a most sympathetic manner. First he laid a square piece of linen upon one side of the table, then he took from a high cupboard in the corner, an old-fashioned blue and white china cup and saucer and plate, and then beside them he laid a bone- handled knife and fork. He lifted a cover of a pot which was boiling upon the stove, took down a tin can of yellow meal, and let it sift through his fingers into the pot, all the while stirring it briskly and keeping up a steady conversation wua Thomas, who sat watching his movements with wide, yellow eyes. Suddenly he paused and listened. "Thomas, did your hear a knock?" he asked. "Now we never open the shop after we have closed for the night; every one knows that; still Thomas, we must see who it, is," So after pushing tho bubbling, seething pudding to the back of the stove, he took the light and, followed sedately by Thomas, passed through the store to the front door. "Who's there?" he called. It was a child's voice replied, but so faintly he could not understand the words. Children always appealed to Uncle Jonathan's heart, so he set down the lamp and made liable to open, the door. It was a little girl with a large bundle in her arms. The night was clear but very cold, and the sharp air cut like a knife, and threatened to blow out the light, BO that Uncle Jonathan had to close the door to a small crack; a most Inhospitable way, he thought, to talk with a child'. "Come inside, my dear, and tell me what you want; it's too cold to be standing here." "Please, sir," said the girl, as he closed the door, "you wanted a boy." "Yes — so I do; do you know of one?" She did not reply at once, but commenced tugging at the bundle she held in her arms; It was a heavy shawl, and when she found the head of a fractious pin and pulled it out the shawl fell away from the tumbled head and rosy cheeks of a baby boy, of perhaps three years of age. "Bless my stars;" exclaimed Uncle Jonathan. "It'y a baby." "Yes, sir," said the girl. "But it's a boy." Then Uncle Jonathan laughed. Ho\v he did laugh and while the children great, wind, yq en pudding and the creamy milk were? the most delicious the children had ever eaten. Bit by bit their sad little story came out. They had no one, and Uncle Jonathan had no one; so it is not strange that the old customers were surprised! next morning by a quiet, bright-faced 1 little girl behind the counter, and that a yellow-haired, red-cheeked baby, toddled about the store and made friends with every one. "Some of your folks turned up at' last?" they said; and Uncle Jonathan nodded his head with a face beaming with such happiness, that the customers all congratulated him, and went out feeling as though something good had come into their own lives.—H.
