a rsmx ISTESTIOS. '
A pale-faced anxious-looking man,
says the Burlington Hawkeye, who
looked as .though he supped with sor
r.iw every, week, lives out on Nonli
Hill with Lis wife and si ven Tote'V.
blooming daughters lie lias, with all
these seven daughters, -only one front
gale, and that is what make Ikbn jmle.
Last summer he spent $217 .refatring
that frout gate,, putting i a new -oties,
and experimenting with various "kinds
f hinges; and after, all that 'the gate
swung all through the winter on a
weather strap and a piece of clothes-line,
and there was peace ii the hoaseholl.
-nid the man grew Vat."- 15nt, when the
.April days were nigh, it soon became
apparent to the man that, hi troubles
were at hand, and anxiety soon drove
the roses from " hi damask cheeks and
robbed hi ribs of their substance: lie
nsed to climb over the back fence to
avoid calling attention to the disreputable-looking
ld gate, but his self-denial
was ot r o ail One eve- ing his
eldest daughter, Sophmiiia fetid; : . '
"Pa, that, horrid old gate i lle most
disgusting thing en this street. 1 Jf you
can't afford to have it fixed, I'd take it
away and put tip a stile."
J 'a only groaned. u Hut an evening
or so later, his youngest daughter eume
in. and said iili considerable warmth:
"Pa 1 3 wish you had ; that beastly
old gate tied to your neck, that's what
i wishi'j.,,,. i . -
And slie dissolved in tears and evap
orated upstairs in a misty cloud, while
her sistera followed slowly, casting 're
proachlul looks at P.. And the next
eveuing hit third' daughter,' ; Azalea,

indicate that she had been patting grav.
el, aud sad, with some energy, that it
Pa had no feeling '. other people had,
and t-he wished .lte was dead, he -did,
atid she Upel that the jiext time -that
Pa wentnt ot that hateful old gate
he'd fall from Acli Wieet to tho1 bridge,
so she did. Axiu she -broke don and
iisappeare3 .with a staccato- accompani-'
mont oft $bs and tsnifSes. - And r the
rext timet that Pa went" out of that
ate he fonatl it prostrato bet ween the
two pos-tSfAntl ! saw . that the fragile
Hirands of the elothes-line- had parted,
under some, extraordinary pressure, and
that was what ailed Azalea's gloves.
Pa saw there was nothing tor it but a
new gal e,. and he - groaned alond as he
viewed th;(ireary prospect of furnish
ing gates to support the manly ' forms
of the best young men iiiliurlingtoh for
another summer. lie pondered, and
pondered, and pondered, lie became
the confidaiif-ot carpenters; he was often
seen guiltily showing certain plans and
drawings to blacksmiths and cunning
workers iniroir and'steeir Anil in duo
time he had a new gate up,' a" mas
sive gate, with great posts, ornamented
aud substantial, and the seven sifters
were pleased. - They read in the little,
irai-f latlhat 1 i tif rrried f ienTTiSf a
aietrt had been applied tor, the words,
'fbr 130" pounds, but they did not know
what it meant until last evehing.
l.asteveniig I he weather, though,
snfliuieiitly ?ol to be bracing, admittexi
a test ol the new gate. A murmur of"j
voices arose from t he ' vicinity ot that
popular lover's retreat,' as Sophfoni ;
wug idly tit and fro on us fieavy
frame: ' l'resentry!t,a pale-ftK-tNl man,1
wlo he'd his haild npini his Irteast to
st li his Ideating hearty :s he V.Vouched
iii a lark corner tt the porch, J heard
Kodolphus say. :
','Iiut Ixjiieve me, Sophronia my own
heart's idol, between the touches of the
rude hand of .i "
As he iogaii tlit? word he leaned for
ward aiKi lient his weight npoti. the
gate, and with a sharp clivk a little trap
door in the side '.f the post Hew jieu
and a gaunt, niai.y joiiiied arm ousted,
with an iron knob as big as a Virginia
gourd. u t tie end of it. flew 'out, and
with t lie rapidity of lightning, hit Ko
dolphus two" resounding tells between
the shoulders that suiiuded like a base
"Oh.h-h! gosh!" he roared, ''I'm
stabbed? I'm ttalilod!" and, without
waiting to pick up Us hat, he fled,
shrieking (or the doctor, while So)hro
nia ruslunl into the house, cryinet "I'a!
Pa! Pa! Rodolpiuis is shotl" and
swooned. The pale-faced mail said
nothing but shrank furlher back into
the sha low, and thrust his handkerchier
into his mouth to stiile a smile. Pretty
son-he knew the voice of his danght;r
Azalea at the gate saving good night.
Jut : rich manly voice detained 'her,
and th measured swing of the gate
was again heard in the distance. ' "Sckii
he heard Loren.o say, as he made ready,
to climb iitihi the gate;
"1 .nt whatever ot sorrow nrty await
our future, dear one, I would it might
fall upon me
And just as he lilted his last foot
from the ground the trapdoor ojiened
and the gaunt arni reached out and feli
ujmjO him with that big knob lour times,
and every time it reached him, Loren-
shrieked: f ' '
"liieeling heart! O mercy, mercy,
Mr. Man! Oh, murder!"
And as he ambled away in the star
light, wailing for' arnica, Azeala tied
wildly to her home Khrieking, "Pa! Pa!
' a! somebody is murdering Lorenzo!"
And on. .the porch a pale-faced man
tiirnst tl rim of his felt hat into , his
mouth to reinforce his handkerchief,
and hugged himself into placid content.
Pretty soon "the man's tifth daughter
came home from a -party, and she, tw,
perched on the gate. And in a tno
tuent or two, AlphonsiV, iaid:
"i5ut my own Miriam would I could
tell you what I feel "
lint lie did'nt for just then he leaned
upon the gate, the gaunt arm reached out,
and he felt the iron, which knocked the j
breath o far out of him that he couldn't
shriek until he had run halt u mile
from the house. And Miriam ran into
the house screaming that Alfonso had a
tit. The pale-faced man rose up out of
the shadow and emptied his mouth and
as he stood under the ,uiet stailiht
looking at the srale whose powerful but
dedicate mechanism repelled an ounce of
weight over i30 pounds, look of
ineffable peace stole over Ihe pale face,
and the smile that rested on the " quiet
features told- that the strugg'e'ot n life
time was ended in victory, and a gate
had been discovered thai, could set at
naught tjie oppressions ot ; thoughtless
young jKfople. ; . ...
A Cleveland drummer (fays the
Leader) was in Elyria a few Sundays
ago, and, while sitting in his room heard,
from ' the next , room, the mysterious
question and answer:
"Wliofe duckey are you?" .
t;lse your duekey!"
A few moments passed, during which
the drummer sat in open-mouthed , won
der, and the silence was again . broken:
' " Whose ducky are you?",
"Pse your duckey!"
Unable to staiid it much longci. alone
the Clevelander hurried down to the
ofiice and learned that a newly-married
coup!e were in the house, invited three
other drummers to hear' the tun, and
tiptoed back to his room. The. wicked
quartet crammed their: handkerchiefs in
their mouths, and during the next
quarter of an hour lteatd that fond
ooiMindrutu put and answered no less
than ( fimr tiires by the unconscious
rustics ait hi.N blushing bride
At d imer, a hick would have it, the
bride and groom were staled next be
tween tw f the drummers, while the
original discoverer-of the bnat za at
opposite, i he tab e . had itee!! cleared

tlie table, he ooked archingly at his

poii nded the conundrum.
'"Wliose duckey are yt.ur?"
The other chap was equal to the
emergency, " and in tones ot affected'
sweetness got in his answer:
"Pse your duckey!"
Two scarlet rustic faces, the flutter
ot a white dress through the doorway,
two vacant seais at the table, and four
crazy drummers laughing till the tears
ran, flashed across thee vision of the
spectators as the curtain fell.
A correspondent of ' the Liverpool
Journal of Commerce furnishes the
following account of the voyage of two
California wheat i-hips under date of
May 5tl :
On the 28th tilt, there arrived at
Liverpool two American ships .The J.
I. Urmni, tinder the command of Cap
tain Keza; and the Southern Cross,
lit tler command of f'antaiu J'allavd.
J he two ship towed out through the
heads at San Francisco- at G o'clock !
the morning of DeeeniU-r 31, 1875,
side' by side, discharged. heir pilots at
the saie time, at id-.passed the Pa rail one
ioauds together. : -Met each' otlter next
day, and partetl' company that night.
Met again on the line in the PaciSic,
and again in the neigh l.ihKd of
Pitcairn in the South Pacific, and again
anil did not see anything ot each other
again until in about three or for de
grees of south latitude on the Atlanlie
side. Heie they hati it in nip and tuck
for a week or ten days, watching each
ot her as a cat does a rat Final'y a
circumstance took place which - the
master of the Southern Cross ay he
never experienced before during a com
mand in the Kast Indh trade for twenty-
five consecutive years. Both ship ar
rived on the equator side by side, bear
ing the cotnpaj-sdue east and west, and
ou working tip their latitude they found
no latitude at all, not a fraction either
way; in fact, they were exactly on the
equator. From this point they pa?ud
company. Met again in tho northeast
trades, sailed in company for a week or
so, and then parted. Met again : off
Holyhead, and took tugs from the same
company, were towed up the Mersey
side by side, and, had the dock-gates
been wide enough, they could have
entered . side by side. " As it was the
Cross led the way in, the Hrown follow
ing within a foot of her alf the way.
: The J. I. Drown was' loaded by
Rogers, Meyer & Co., and the Southern
Cross by Stevens, Baker & Co,t ot San
Francisco, and each made tho passage
in 117 days. r
"'. t New Medicinal Agent! Our
attention has recently been called to a
new combination in medical chemistry
v.-hich seems likely to be the means of
alleviating a large amount of suffering.
These healing, Foothtiig and balsamic
substances ha ve been united in a modi
ci .e which we are' assured by those who
hve had a fair opportunity of observ
ing its effects is,a positive, remedy for
all ordinary diseases of the throat and
lungs. The formula is said , to have
been furnished by a distinguished for
eign physician (llr. Hale,) aud it is ad
vertised as "J7tit?3 Honey of Jlore
Itouucl and Tar?y There 'can '.be no
doubt from the character of-the testi
mony in itsifavor, that it is a prepara
tion of superior merit, and as the specific
of a member of the profession, who has
made pulmonary diseases his- specialty,
it is fully eutitled we think, to the con
fidence ot the public. One thing is
certain, it is in great demand, and all
drui-gsits find necessary to keep it.
;. ', The Indtpemlant says; The most
favorable reports are received concern
ing the crop prospects. ' "Everywhere
grain is reported as doing unusually well,
and all nree the largest wheat crop
ever grown in Douglas county' will, be
threslied out this fall.
