KO MORTGAGE ON THE FARM,
'.. ;'l . : 1 by . jgn n. tatks. . : . ' '
Mary, let's kill the tatted calf and celebrate
the day, -
For the last dreadful mortgage on the
farm is wiped away ;
I have got the papers with me"; ; they are
" right as right can be;
Let us laugh and sing together, for the
dear old farm is free.
Don't all the people celebrate the Fourth
day of July, - ....
'-Because 'twas then that freedom's sun lit
up our nation's fiky ?
Why shouldn't we then celebrate, and this
- day ne'er forget ? -'
Where is there any freedom like being out
of debt? .
I've riz up many mornings, an hour
- before the sun,
And night has overtaken me before-the
task was done ;
When weary with my labor 'twas this
thought that nerved ory arm
Bach day of toil will help to pay the
mortgage on the farm. . '
And, Mary, you have done your part in
rovvin' to the shore,
By taking eggs and butter to the little vil
lage store ;
You did not spend the money in dressing
up for show, ".. 'f.
'But sang from morn till evening in your
And Bessie, our sweet daughter God
bless her loving heart,
The lad that gets her for a wife must be
. by nature smart
. She's gone without a piano, her lonely
- ., hours to charm, . .
To have a hand in payin' off the mort
gage on the farm. 1
I'll build a little cottage to make your
heart rejoice ;
I'll buy a good piano, to go with Betsy'3
You shall not make your butter with that
up and. down concern,
For I'll go this very day and buy the finest
patent churn. r- -
Lay by your faded calico, and go with me
And get yourself and Bessie a new and
shining gown ;
, Low prices for produce need not give us
" ". now alarm ; - . ""
Spruce up, my little Mary,there's no mort
gage on the farm.
While' our hearts are now so joyful, let us,
Mary, not forget
To thank the God of ileaven for being out
of debt; - - -- . - .
For he gave the rain and sunshine, and
put strength into my arm,
And lengthened out inv days to see no
mortgage on the farm.

! A Dastardly Trick. '
A retired clergyman sends ns an ac
count of a little affair that happened in
his place. It appears that there was
a young woman, a fine spirited girl,
engaged at a , wash tub, oppo
site an open door.- Just behind her
was a young man, as is generally the
case, and in the yard was an old buck
that was allowed the freedom of the
premises, which is not always the case,
we are glad to say. Well, this buck
came up and looked in, and the young
man going close behind the young wo
man, pointed nis linger straight at the
buck, and the old fellow recognizing at
once the pressing character of this mate
invitation put down his head and dash
ed forward, and the miserable man step
ped one side and fled,, and the young wo
man, all unconscious ot . the arrange
ment, received the awful shock without
warning, and passed over the tub. and
the air . for . an instant appeared to be
full of slippers, and wet clothes, and
soap and hot water, and suds. And
the next minute that goat came flying
out of that door at a dreadful speed
bald the whole length of his Spine, and
with a wild look in his eye. And for
an hour afterward ho stood back of the
barn, scratching his chin, and trying to
recall all the circumstances in the un
Air Editor, says somebody who evi
dently knows, is a man who lives, on
what other people owe him until be
starves to death. A subscriber is one
who takes a paper and Bays he is well
pleased with it, and he tells erverybody
else 'he ought to subscribe.' After he
has subscribed about seven years, .the
editor writes to him and asks him to let
him have $2 50 (two dollars and fifty
cents) and then the subscriber writes
back to the editor and tells him not to
send his old paper any more, for ..there
is nothing in it, and then the poor editor
goes and starves to death some more.
. Death is the Chignoit. Ladies who
consider their toilet unfinished without
a chignon will dread to hear that the
hair of patients dying With small-pox
in Eastern cities is cut off and sold to
barbers and hair-dressers. - - It is a noto
rious fact that much of the "glory of
woman " is scissored from literally dead
heads, but it had never before occurred
to us that any one would be so crim
inally, so atrociously indifferent to the
public welfare as to barter hair from
Ueosttoxicating Cxdeb. A law
which has just passed the Senate of
Maine " allows the free sale of cider,
unless intoxicating." Hereafter, such
a thing as intoxicating cider will be to
tally unknown in that State, even to
those who get blind drunk, on it.
' A reporter tells of a Connecticut
bride who wore at her wedding a pair
of beautiful pink silk stockings, worn
by her mother on a like occasion, thir

is extremely anxious to know how the
reporter found it out.
