THK lEWtBOY'S DEBT.
Only ' yoTi Cnrtrtmas time, . ,
While pacing down a city atreet,
saw a tiny, ill-clad boy
One of tlie thounanoa that wo meet
As ragged "aa a boy conld be.
With half a cap, with one (food thoe ;
Jdfrt patch ea to keep out the winds
I know the wind blew keenly too :
A aeweboy, with a newsboy lung.
A square Scotch face, and honest brow.
And eyea tnat liked to amile ao welt
They had not yet forgotten how :
A newsboy, hawking bis last aheeta
With loud persistence. Now and then
Stopping to beat his sti ffened bands.
And trudging bravely on again.
Denizing about among the crowd.
Shouting hia " Extras" o'er and o'er ;
Pausing by whiles to cheat the wind
Within some alley, by some door. '
At last he stopped six pipers left, -
Tucked hopelessly beneath his arm
To eye a frmtercr'a outspread store;
Here products lrom some couutry farm,
And there confections, all adorned
With wreathed and clustered leavea and flowers,
While little fount.-, like frosted spires,
Toaaed up and down their mimic showers. f ......
-. r -. . -. .jh
He stood and gazed with wistful face,
All a child's longing in his eyes ;
' Then started, as 1 touched his arm.
And turned in quick, mechanic wise,
Baiaed his torn cap with porp'e hands.
Said, ' Paper, sir T World Harold ! Times !"
And brushed away a freezing tear
That marked his cheek with frosty rimes.
How many have you T Never mind
Bon t stop to count 111 take them all ;
And when you pass my office here.
With stock, on hand, give me a call."
He thanked me with a broad Scotch smile,
A look half wondering and half glad,
I fumbled for the proner change, "
And said, " You seem a little lad
41 To rough it in the streets like this."
" I'm ten years aid thi Christmas time !"
"Yonrname?" " Jim Kanley." "Here's a bill
I've nothing else, but thia one dime
' Five douars. when yon get it changed
Come to my office that's the place.
Now wait a bit, there's time enough !
Ton need not run a headlong race.
Where do yon live t" " Moct anywhere.
We hired a atal-le-loft to-day,
1i and two others." " And yon thought
The fruiterer's window pretty, hey ?
Or were you hungry I" " Just a bit,""
He answered, bravely as he might,
" I couldnt buy a breakfast, sir.
And had no money left last night."
' And jon are cold ?" " Aye, just a bit.
I don't mind cold." " Why, that is strange !"
He smiled and pulled his ragged cap.
And darted off to get the " change."
So, with half unconscious sigh,
I sought my office desk again.
An hear or mora my bney wita
round work enough with book and pen.
But when the mantel clock struck five
I started with a sudden thought,
For there beside my hat and cloak
lay those six papers I had bought.
Why. Where's the boy, and where'a the '.change
He should have brought an hour ago T
Ah. well ! ah, well ! they're all alike!
I was a fool to tempt him so?
" Dishonest ! Well, I might have known ;
And yet his face seemed candid, too.
He would have earned the difference
a If he had brought ma what was due.
" But caution aften cornea too late."
And so I took my homeward way,
Deeming distrust of human kind
The onlyl esson of the day.
Just two days later, aa I aat,
Half dozing, in ur y office chair.
I beard a timid knock, and called.
Ia say brnaq.ua faahian. " Who is there ?"
An urchin entered, barely seven
The same Scotch faoe, the same blue eyes
And stood, half doubtful, at the door.
Abashed at my forbidding guiae.
Sir, it you please, my brother Jim
To afee you give the bill, yon know
He couldnt bring the money, sir,
Because his back was hnrted so.
Be didn't mean ( o keep the ' change ;'
He got runned over up the street ;
The wheel went right across his back.
And t'other fore-wheel smashed bis feet.
They stopped the horses just In time,
And then they took him up for dead.
And all that day and yesterday
He wasnt rightly In bis bead.
" Thet took him to the hospital
One of the newsboys knew Hwas Jim
And I went too, because, you see.
We two are brothers, I and him.
" He had that money In his hand,
And never saw it any more.
Indeed, he didnt mean to steal I
Ha never lost a eent before I
' He-was afraid that yon might think
He meant to keep it, any way X
This morning, when they brought him to,
He cried because he couldnt pay.
He made me fetch h's Jacket here ;
It's torn and dirtied pretty bad ;
It's only fit to sell for rags, , .
But then, yon know. It's all he had t
" When he gets well it wont be long
If you will can the money lent.
He eaya hell work bis fingers off
But what hell pay you every cent,"
And then be cast srueful glance
At the soiled Jacket where it lay.
No, no, my boy 1 Take back the coat,
Tour brother' badly hurt, you say t
Where did they take him t Just run out
And hail a cab, then wait for me.
Why, I would give a thousand coats.
And pounds, for such a boy aa he 1"
... , . .
A halAiour after tula we stood
Together in the crowded wards.
Aid the nurse checked the hasty steps
That fell too loudly on the boards.
I thought him smiling In his sleep.'
And scarce believed her when eh said,
Smoothing away the tangled our
from brow and cheek. " The boy ia dead !"
'.rj T - i
Dead dead so soon T How fair be looked t
One streak of sunshine sn his hair.
Poor lad ! Well, it Is warm in heaven : '
.ho need ef " change" and jackets there I
And something rising in my throat
Made it ia so hard tor me to speak,
I turned away, ard left a tear
Lying open his sun burned cheek.

Partfenlars of tto Uaa(iB of Charles
Reward tojr a Mob at Dei Moines,
From the Des Moines Bejister.J
Mr. Wise says that at half-past two
o'clock he was awakened by a knock at
the door of his bed-room, in the base
ment of the, jail. He answered the
knock, supposing it was a policeman
with a prisoner. As he opened the
door, a large man, masked, i drew a
hatchefupon him. Mr. Wisecanght
him by the throat, but back of the
vigilant was a large crowd of ten or
fifteen confederates, who bore down
upon him, pressing him back into the
room, when, he was thrown upon the
floor and tied hand and foot. A large
man was left to guardhim, which he did
with his knee on Wise's breast and a
cocked revolver at his head. " -
They took his keys from him. Not a
word was said by any of them during
their'encounter with him.
They took tfee keys, and went directly
to the celi where Howard was and where
he was' in bed with his wife. They
knew all too well what was coming, for
the mob has its awful forewarning in
its mere murmur, as the earthquake has
its awful, terrifying warning, in its
faintest rumble. Breaking into the
room they surged up to the bed amid
the frantic and agonizing yells of bis
wife. As they laid hands upon their
victim, his wife threw her body directly
across his breast and neck, evidently
thinking they meant to kill him there
with powder or blade. ' She clung to
him so desperately, - intertwining her
self about him with such superhuman
strength that the vigilants could hard
ly unloosen her grip and reach the man.
And it was not till Howard himself
iron-nerved and dauntless to the terri
ble last took hold of her arms and
with his gigantic, strength pushed her
back that she released her ; frenzied
grip. He did this with the ejaculation,
" Let me loose, and I will go with
them, if I must," The rope was then
put about his neck, and he was dragged
out of the bed and across the floor out
of the door his wife following him
with ths most agonizing screams of
rhich the human voice, in its direst
agony, is capable screams which, S co
field and Walker and the guards say,
will never die from their memories, so
full of terror and supplication were
they. The door was slammed to as
they went, and the woman was left
alone in the palpable darkness, with no
companion but the grisly horror which
is worse than death.
As he came out of the outer jail door
five or six men had hold of the rope,
and he trotted along after them, clad
only in a short undershirt, holdiug his
two hands in : front, grasped upon the
rope. He trotted up the middle stairs,
the route 1 taken, and when at the
head ef the steps, more men grabbed
hold of the rope, which jerked Mm
down upon the floor. He was not given
time to rise up, rt was dragged along
through the hall, down the front steps,
and along the serpentine walk,' aa rap
pidly as twenty strong men could draw
him. Mr. Gurney says he saw him as
he was going up the middle stairs, and
that he had not up to that time spoken
a word that he or any of the rest had
heard, and he was then turning black
or purple in the face. The guards also
say they heard nothing from him after
he left the court-room, but the boys in
the postoffice, who were awakened by
the nrintr which was commenced afl
f around the court-house about this time.
say they never Heard such awful, terri
ble, startling, agonized yells, nearly
a dozen shrill, piercing, unearthly
screams in quick succession. :
Of the rest of the work little is
known. All that was known that we
could print, in the short time we had,
was the dangling body of Howard,
swinging with his face next the re
morseless iron of the lamp-post, his
form nearly naked, his legs all drag
gled, and begrimed, and bruised, and
bleeding, and apparently six or eight
ballet-holes in his feet and the lower
part of his legs. He was hung with a
half-inch hemp rope, thrown up over
the two iron arms just below the gas
lamp, put around his neck double, with
the knot under his right ear, and the
two ends' of the rone tied, one to the
front of the nitching-frame, back of
him, th.3 ether to the top of the iron
fence. -' . -
A Curious Fish,
J The Chinese fish of Paradise is de
scribed as small, of a pale gray color,
and with little about it to attract atten
tion. As soon as the animal becomes
excited, however, the long fins on the
back and beHy straighten out and as
sume a rich purple hue, tinted with
green. The long and forked-shaped
tail spreads into a kind of fan, and the
stripes under the sides of the fiah be
come yellow, red and blue, constantly
'changing in color. The scales seem to
become opalescent, and reflect the light
with the greatest , brilliancy; while the
eyes seem to be illuminated with a
bluish-green fire.' : ' The habits of the
animal are as odd as its appearance.
The males take charge of the young and
build the nest. The latter , is simply a
clot of foam floating upon the water,
and is made by the fish rising to the
surface and alternately absorbing and
expelling the air, until a little cluster
of fine bubbles,: hardly three-tenths of
an inch square, is formed. The female
then deposits her eggs, which are at
once seized upon by the male, who
carries them in his mouth to the nest.
Then he watches their incubation, care
fully guarding - and distributing them
with wonderful sagacity evenly through
out tne mass of. foam. . ; When they clot
together he pushes them apart with his
nose, and besides, keeps up a continual
manufacture of bubbles until the eggs
are lifted up above the water andjrest
only upon theut sof t oouoh, As Boon as
the embryos appear, his care is doubled.
Me watches that, none escape, and in
case some become separated he chases
them, catches them in bis month and
replace i them carefully in the nest. If
one becomes hurt he removes jt from
the others and gives it a separate bub
ble by itself, apparently nursing it until
it regains its strength.

FINASCE AND TRADE.
Review or the) Chicago Market for tne
Week Ending Dee. tel.
The market remains very qoiet, the de
mands for favors being light. Grain a pecu
lation and packing operations have been com
paratively restricted for some time past, and
the nsnal demands for loans from these inter
ests are not on the market. Toward the close
there was an increased inquiry from the gen
eral merchandise trades. Bates of interest
unchanged, 10 per cent, to regular customers,

It is seldom that the grain trade is in Buch
a quiet condition as is at present witnessed.
The speculative mania seems to have sub
sided, and there is but iittie inclination shown
to speculate, either by local or outside opera
tors. Indeed, aside from the wheat trade,
none of the markets appear to attract any at
tention from operators worthy of mention,
aud the general trade is greatly depressed.
Usually, at this season of the year we have
seme shipping demand for grain, but now the
prices bere are too high to admit of any ac
tivity in this line, and the result is an accu
mulation of the stock in store. The markets
at the East are in an unfavorable condition,
the scarcity of ocean freight room checking
and restricting the export movement. Our
stocks, although not large", are steadily in
creasing, the figures published above showing a
general excess of receipts over shipments, and
this fact operates unfavorably on the market,
aiding the "Bears" in forcing a low range
of prices. The Shorts do not seem to have
any anxiety regarding their future contracts
and are apparently satisfied with the course of
affairs, manifesting but little desire to cover
their trades. Outside orders were more or
less restricted. Spring wheat was
moderately active at times, but generally
rather quiet. ' Prices were lc to lc

Where Hair Comes to a Head,
t A correspondent of the Philadelphia
Press writes : "I have recently learned
some interesting facts respecting a man
ufacture in which every female head
throughout the land is interested,
namely, the preparation of human hair
and its transformation into switches,
ringlets, etc The largest- establish
ment of this nature in the world exists
in Germany. It is situated in a town
called Wetzlar, in the valley of the
Liann. It is the depot to which travel
ing collectors of hair bring their wares
to dispose of, and so extensive are their
transactions that their wares are ar
ranged in bales, each containing three
and four hundred pounds of hair.
These bales each contain a heteroge
neous mass of human locks of every
shade and texture, from raven black to
flaxen blonde, from horse-hair coarse
ness to silken fineness. This is
the material in . the rough, and
very dirty and disgusting are
often the peasant grown tresses
when brought into the factory. But
fear nothing, ladies, fair, respecting
the4cleanliness of your alien locks ; all
the hair is thoroughly boiled before
being placed in the hands of the work
girls, of whom 600 are employed in this
establishment. The hair, when dried
and smoothed, is then carefully sorted
according to color and length. Good
brown hair of average length is worth
about $15 per pound ; the highest
priced hair is pure white, long tresses
of which are sold, not by the pound,
but by the single hair, each hair being
valued at about half a cent. The most
valuable of the natural hues' is pale
gold ; a switch of that color was dis
played, valued at nearly $100, even in
that wholesale mart. The great curi
osity there was a switch of light brown
hair measuring six feet in'length, and
for which $100 had been paid to the
original owner thereof ; this unparal
leled braid is not to be sold, but is to
be reserved for exhibition at our Cen
tennial." Yotr get the same accommodations,
more attention and better fare at the
Sherman House, Chicago, now than
under any previous management of that
excellent hotel, and for less money. In
times like the present these are impor
Thebb is so Death. If it be true
thit Nature abhors a . vacuum, it Is
equally true that the Great Creator ab
hors death and glories in life. There
is really no such thing as death the
term is a misnomer, used to designate the
changes which occur in life. liife, eter
nal life, is created by the laws of Al
mighty will-power, which are as immut
able in their application as is the exist
ence of the Creator himself. When
God made life, he made everything
necessary to sustain it, but left it or
man's progressive intelligence to dis
cover, convert and utilize. Good medi
cine is to the ailing physique what good
fuel is to the expiring flame ; the better
the fuel, the quicker the fire the bet
ter the medicine, the quicker comes re
lief from pain. Califobkia Vinegar
Bitters is life's elixir for old or young.
Use this medicine properly and you will
live to a good old age without those
physical ailments which make seventy
years a burden. 15

clared offioiallv to be an friendlv terms.
This is the first real intimation of war
which could be relied upon.

not be too highly praised, for they have almost

virulent poison causing them, who can longer
doubt its wonderful virtues? Dr. pierce,'
however, does not wish to place bis Golden
Medical Discovery in the catalogue of quack
patent nostrums by recommending it to cure
every disease, nor does he so recommend it :
but what he does claim is this, that there is
bat one form of blood disease that tt will not

he knows it to be the most searching blood

is no cathartic for the purpose equal to
