THE OI-D rARM HOISK.
At The foot of the hill, near t lie old red mill,
In a quiet, Btiady spot,
Jxitt peeping through, half hid from view,
St ads a little moss-grown cot,
And 8traytii(f through at the open door,
The sunbeams play on the sanded Uoor.
The easy chair, all patched with care,
Is placed by the old hearth-stone ;
With witching grace, in the old fireplace,
Tle evergreens are strewn.
And picture hang on the whitened wall.
And the old clock ticks in the cottage hall.
More lovely still, on the window sill.
The dew-eyed flowers rest,
While midst the leave on the moss-green eaves
The martin builds her nest,
And all day long the summer breeze
Is whispering love to the bended trees.
Ovr the door, all covered o'er
With a sack of dark green baize,
I.. a musket, whose worth is told
In the events of other days ;
And the powder-flask, and the hunter's horn,
Have hung beside it for many a morn.
For years have fled, with noiseless tread,
l-i k fairy dream away.
And left in their flight, all shorn of its might,
A father oltl and gray;
And the soft wind plays with his snow white hair,
And the old man nleeps iu an easy chair.
Inside the door, on the sanded floor,
, Litrnt, airy footsteps glide.
And u maiden fair, with flaxen hair,
Kneels by the old man's side
An old oak wrecked by the angry storm.
While the ivy clings to its trembling fori.
Rural Xtto Yorker,
A HERO WOMAX.
In a thick wood not more than half a
mile from the Schuylkill, there stood
in the time of the Revolution a quain
old fabric, built of mingled logs and
stone, and inclosed by a palisade wall.
It had been erected in the early days of
William Penn perhaps some years be
fore the great apostle of peace first trod
our shores Las a block-house first in
ended for defense against the Indians.
And now it stood with its numerous
chimnrs, its massive square windows,
it varied front of logs and stone, its
encircling wall, through which admit
tance was gained by a large and stoutly
built gate ; it stood in the midst of the
wood, with age-worn trees encircling its
veteran outlines on -very side.
From its eastern windows you might
obtain a glimpse of the Schuylkill,
while a large c isement iu the southern
front commanded a view of the winding
road as it sunk out of view, under the
shade of those thicklv clustered boughs,
ifeo a deep hollow, not more than a hun
dred yards "from the mansion.
Here from the southern casement, on
one of those balmy days which look in
npon the dreary autumn, toward the
close of November, a farmer's daughter
was gazing with dilated eyes and half
Weil might she gaze earnestly to the
south and listen with painful intensity to
the. slightest sound ! Her brothers
were away in the army of Washington,
and her father a grim old veteran he
stood sis fwet and three inches in his
stockings who had manifested his hate
for the red" coat invaders in many a
desperate contest, had that morning left
her alone in this small chamber, in
charge of some ammunition intended for
a band of brave farmeis about to join
the host of freedom.
Even as she stood there gazing out of
the south window, a faint glimpse of
sunlight from the faded leaves above,
pouring over her mild face, shaded by
clustering brown hair, not ten paces
from her side were seven loaded rifles
and a keg of powder.
Leaning from the casement, she lis
tened with every nerve quivering with
suspense to the shous of combatants,
the hurried tread of armed men echoing
from the south.
There was something very beautiful
fx mat picture.' The form of the young
lrPframed by the square massive win
dow,' the contrast between the rough
timbers that inclosed her, and that
rounded face, the lips parting, the hazel
eye dilating, and the cheeks warming
with hope and fear ; there was some
thing very beautiful in that picture a
young girl leaning from the window,
of an old mansion, with her brown hair
waving in glossy masses around her
Suddenly the shouts to the south
grew nearer, and then emerging from
the deep hollow, there came an old man
running a full speed, yet every few
minrites turning to fire his rifle, which
he -loaded as he ran.
Hg was pursued by a party of ten
British soldiers who came rushing on,
their-bayonets fixed, as if to strike their
victim ere he advanced ten steps nearer
Ojf and on the old man came, while
his daughter, quivering with suspense,
hung leaning from the window, he
reached the large block-house look !
He is surrounded, their muskets are
leveled at his head, he is down at their
feet grappling for life.
But look again. He dashes his foes
aside, with one bold movement he
sprifigs through the gate ; an instant,
and It is locked ; the British soldiers,
mad with rage, gazed upon the high wall
of lags and stone, and vent their anger
in dwmken otrrses.
Now look to yonder window where
the young girl stood a moment ago,
with su,spens as she beheld her father
struggling for his life, now stands that
old nran himself, his brow bared, his
arms grasping the rifle, while his gray
hairs wave back from bis wrinkled, and
bloodjdabbled face. That was a fine
figure of an old veteran, nerved for his
last fight ; a. stout warrior, preparing
for Ms death..Struggle ! '
Death struggle ? Yes for the old
man, Isaac Wampole, has dealt too
manyT hard blows among the British
soldiers, tricked, foiled and cheated
theSfoo often to escape now.
A few minutes longer and they would
be reinforced by a large party of refu
gees. The powder and arms in the old
block -house, perhaps his daughter her
6elf,"sras to be their reward.
There was scarcely a hope for the old
man, and yet he was determined to make
a desperate fight.
"We must bluff off these rascals ! "
he said, with a smile, turning to his
child, "Now, Bess, my girl, when I
fire this rifle yon hand me another, and
so on 'until the whole eight shots are
fired ! That will keep them on the
other side of the wall for a few minutes
tt least, and then we will have to trust
ao God for the rest !"
Look down there and see a hand steal
ing over the walk The old man leveled
his "piece that British trooper falls
back with a erushed hand npon his
No longer quivering with suspense,
but suddenly growing firm, the young
girl passes a loaded rifle to the vet
eran's grasp, and silently awaits the
For a moment all is silent below ; the
British braves are somewhat loth to try
that wall when a stout old "rebel,"
rifle in hand, is looking from yonder
window. There is a pause low, deep
murmurs they are holding a council.
A moment is gone, and nine heads
are thrust above the wall at once
hark ! one two three 1 The old vet
eran has fired three shots, three dying,
groveling in the yard, beneath the
shadow of the wall.
' Quick, Bess, the rifles !"
And the brave girl passed the rifles
to her father's grasp ; there are four
! more shots, and three soldiers fall back
i like weights of lead upon the ground,
I and a single red coat is seen slowly
mounting to the top of the wall, his
! eyes fixed upon the hall door, which he
: will force ere a moment is gone.
Now the last ball is. fired, theoid man
stands there in that second story win
dow, his hands vainly striving for
another loaded rifle.
At this moment the wounded and dy
I ing band below were joined by a party
' of some twentv refugees, who clad m
their robber uniform came rushing from
1 the woods, and with one bound are
leaping from the summit of the wall.
"Quick, Bess, my rifle !"
And look there even while the vet
i eran stood looking out upon the foes,
! the brave girl for slender in form and
! wildly beautiful in face, she is a brave
girl, a hero woman had managed, as
if by instinctive impulse, to load a rifle.
She handed it to her father, and then
loaded another and another ! Was not
that a beautiful sight ? A fair, young
girl grasping powder and ball, with
ramrod rising and fallen in her slender
Now look down to the wall again.
The refugees are climbing over its sum
mit again a horrid cry and another
j wounded man tumbled down on his
1 dead and dying comrades.
But, now look ! A smoke rises, the
! fire blazes up around the wall ; they
' have fired the gate. A moment and the
bolt and lock will be burned from the
socket the passage will be free. Now
is the fiery moment of the old man's
While the brave daughter loads he
continues to firo with that deadly aim,
but now oh, horror he falls, he falls
with a musket ball driven into his
breast. The daughter's outstretched
arms received the father, as with blood
spouting from the wound, he toppled
from the window.
Oh, it is a sad and terrible picture.
The old man writhing there i-n the
oaken floor, the young daughter bending
over him, the iight from the window
streaming over her face, over her fath
er's gray hairs, while the ancient furni
ture of the small chamber affords a dim
back-ground to the scene.
Now, hark ! The sound of axes at
the hall door ; shouts ! hurrahs ! curses !
" We have the old rebel at last !"
The old man raises his head at that
sound ; makes an effort to rise ; clutches
for a rifle, and then falls back again, his
eyes glaring, as the fierce pain of that
wound quivers through his heart.
Now, watch the movements of the
daughter. Silent'y she loads a rifle, si
lently she rests it against the head of
that powder keg, and then placing her
finger on the trigger, stands over her
father's form, while the shouts of the
enraged soldiers came thundering down
the stairs. Yes, they have broken the
hall door to fragments, are in possession
of the old block-house, they are rushing
oward the chamber with murder in
their eyes ! Had the old man a thou
sand lives they would not be worth a
farthing's purchase now.
Still that girl, grown suddenly white
as the kerchief round her neck, stands
there trembling from head to foot, the
rifle in her hand, its dark tube laid
against the powder keg.
The door bursts open ! Look there !
Stout forms are in the doorway, with
muskets in their hands ; grim faces
stained with blood, glaring into the
Now, as if her very soul has coined
the words, that young girl, with face
pale as ashes, hazel eyes glaring with
deathly light, utters this short but
meaning speech :
"Advance one step into this room,
and I will fire this rifle into the powder
No oath quivers the lips of that girl,
to confirm her resolution, but there she
stands alone, with her wounded father,
and yet not a soldier dare cross the
threshold. Embrued as they are in
deeds of blood, there is something ter
rible to those men in the words of that
young sirl, who stands there with the
rifle laid against the powder keg.
They stand as if spell-bound, on the
threshold of that chamber.
At last one bolder than the rest,
bravo, whose face is half inclosed in a
thick, red beard, grasps a rifle and lev
els it at the young girl's breast.
" Stand back, or I will fire !"
Still the girl is firm ; the bravo ad
vances a step and then steps back. The
sharp " click " of that rifle falls with
an unpleasant emphasis upon his ear.
"Bess, I am dying," gasps the old
man, extending his arms. " Ha, ha, we
have foiled the Britishers. Come,
daughter, kneel here ; kneel and say a
prayer for me, and let me feel your
warm breath upon my face, for 1 am
getting cold. Oh, dark and cold !"
Look ! As those trembling accents
fall from the old man's tongue, those
fingers unloose their hold of the rifle
already the troopers are secure of one
victim, a young and beautiful girl, for
affection for her father is mastering the
heroism of the moment look ! She is
about to spring into his arms. But now
she sees her danger again, she clutches
the rifle ; again, though her father's dy
ing accents are in her ears, stands there
prepared to scatter that house in ruins
if a single rough hand assails that vet
There are a few moments of terrible
suspense, then a hurried sound far
down the mansion, then a contest on the
stairs, then. the sound of rifle shots and
the light of rifle blaze. Then the ruf
fians in the doorway fall crushed by the
strong arm of the Continental soldiers.
Then a wild shriek quivers through the
room, and that young girl that hero of
a woman with one bound springs into
her brother's arms, and nestles there
while her father his form yet warm
lies with fixed eyeballs, upon the floor.
Jeremy Taylor on Marriage.
The following extract from that sound
old divine, Jeremy Taylor, is always
read with interest, because of its simple
"Marriage has in it less of beauty, but
more of safety, than the single life ; it
hath no more ease, but less danger ; it
is more merry and more sad ; it is fuller
of jgorrows and fuller of joys ; it lies
under more burdens, but is supported
by all the strengths of love and charity,
and those burdens are delightful.
Marriage is the mother of the world,
and preserves kingdoms and fills cities,
and churches, and heaven itself. Celib
acy, like the fly in the heart ef an ap
ple, dwells in perpetual sweetness, buc
sits alone, and is confined and dies in
singularity ; but marriage, like tho use
ful bee, builds a house, and gathers
honey from every flower, and unites into
societies and republics, and sends out
colonies, and feeds the world with deli
cacies, and obeys their king, and keeps
order, and exercises many virtues, and
promotes the interest of mankind, and
is that state of good to which God hath
designed the present constitution of the
Fire-Proof Paper and Ink.
The loss of valuable documents which
has attended the large conflagrations of
the last few years will cause general in
terest to attach to an incombustible pa
per and fireproof ink recently patented
by an English inventor. Though the
paper is not regarded as absolutely in
destructible by fire of any degree of
fierceness, it is yet claimed that, under
such circumstances as fire in houses,
factories, or other buildings, it is " or
dinarily incombustible." The pulp,
which is manufactured in the usual
way, is composed of vegetable fiber,
one part ; asbestos, two parts ; borax,
one-tenth part ; and alum, two-tenths
parts. These ingredients, having been
previously ground and finely divided,
are brought to the consistency of pulp
by the addition of water in proper pro
portion. Not only can writing-paper
be thus manufactured, but a coarser
substance for the bindings of books or
the inclosing of manuscripts. The fire
proof ink can be used in either writing
or printing, and is made according
to the following recipe : Graphite,
finely ground, 22 drachms ; copal, or
other resinous gum, 12 grains ; sulphate
oi iron, 2 drachms ; tincture of nut
galls, 2 drachms ; and sulphate
of indigo, 8 drachms. These substan
ces are thoroughly mixed and boiled in
water, and the ink thus obtained is said
to be both fireproof and insoluble in
water. " When any other color but
black is desired, the graphite is replaced
by an earthy mineral pigment of the
The Old Red Cent.
As the old " red cent " has now passed
out of use, and, except rarely, out of
sight, like the " old oaken bucket," its
history is a matter of sufficient interest
for preservation. The cent was first
proposed by Robert Morris, the great
financier of the revolution, and was
named by Jefferson two years after. It
began to make its appearance from the
mint in 1792. It bore the head of Wash
ington on one side, and thirteen links
on the other. The French revolution
soon created a rags for French ideas in
America which put on the cent, instead
of the head of Washington, the head of
the Goddess of Libert a French liberty
with neck thrust forward and flowing
locks. The chain on the reverse was
replaced by the olivewreath of peace,
but the French liberty was short lived,
and so was her portrait on our cent.
The next head or figure succeded this

around her hair came into fashion
about thirty or forty years ago, and her
finely chiseled Grecian features have
been but slightly altered by the lapse of

Bleeding from lungs, Catarrh, Bro-u
chilis, Consumption A Wonderful
Boohesteb. N. Y. Jan. 13, 1874.
11. V. Pierce, M. I)., Buffalo, N. Y.:
Dear. iVtr .- I had suffered from Catarrh in
an aggravated form for about twelve years
and for several years from Bronchial trouble.
Tried many doctors and tilings with no last
ing benent. In May, '72, becoming nearly
worn out with excessive Editorial labors on a
paper in New York city, I was attacked with
Bronchitis in a severe form, suffering almost a
total loss of voice. I returned home here, but
had been home only two weeks when I was
completely prostrated with Hemorrhage from
the hungs, ftaring four severe bleeding spell
within tteo weeks, and Jirst three insidt- of nine
days. In the September following, I improved
sufficiently to be able to be about, though in a
very feeble state. My Bronchial trouble re
mained and the Catarrh was tenfold worse
than before. Every effort for relief seemed
fruitless. I seemed to be losing ground daily.
I continued in this feeble state, raising blood
almost daily until aoout the first of March,
'73, when 1 became so bad as to be entirely
couaned to the house. A friend suggested
your remedies . But I was extremely skepti
cal that they would do me good, as i" had lost
all heart in remedies, and began to look upon
medicine and doctors with disgust. However,
I obtained one of your circulars and read it
carefully, from which I came to theconclusion
that you understood your business, at least,
.finally obtained a quantity of Dr. Sage's Ca
tarrh Remedy, your Golden Medical Discovery
and Pellets and commenced their vigorous use
according to directions. To my surprise, I
soon began to improve. The Discovery and
Pellets, in a short time, brought out a severe
eruption, which continued for several weeks.
I felt much better, my appetite improved, and
I gained in strength and flesh. In three
months every vestige of Catarrh was gone,
the Bronchitis had nearly disappeared, had no
Cough whatever and I had entirely ceased to
raise blood ; and, contrary to the expectation
of some of my friends, the cure has remained
permanent. I have had no more Hemorrhages
from the Lungs, and am entirely free from Ca
tarrh, from which I bad suffered so much and
so long. The debt of gratitude I owe for the
blessing I have received at your hands knows
no bounds. I am thonrooghly satisfied, from
my experience, that your medicine will master
the worst forms of that odious disease, Ca
tarrh, as well as Throat and Lung Diseases.
I have recommended them to very many, and
shall ever speak in their praise. Gratefully,
yours, Wm. H. Sfkncek.

The American Meat & Vegetable Chopper.
An Improved Meat and Vegetable Chopper to take
the place of the old Knife and Tray in preparing
the various articles of food which require chop
ping, such as Sausage, Mince Meat. Salads, Hash,
Fish, Fruit and Vegetables of various kinds, has
come to be considered as much of a necessity in
every well conducted household as a Clothes
Wringer or Cooking Stove, while for Hotels. Ba
keries, Restaurants and Public Institutions where
large quantities of food are required such a ma
chine is absolutely indispensable.
Of the n any inventions designed for the pur
pose, the only one which has stood the test of time
and proved perfect success is the " American, ,T of
which more than 50.000 have been sold, and five
years1 constant use has proved their superiority
over all other Choppers. They save their cost in
labor every year, and so great has the demand for
them become that the annual sales now amount to
more than three times that of all other Family
Choppers combined a fact which is sufficient evi
dence of l heir superior merit.
