we learn from an interesting contribu

a site for commercial purpose- on the

daughter of fceth Jenkins, now dead,
has left a letter, in which she states:
"While visiting Nantucket some years-
ago, I found an old paper among the
archives of that city, giving this account
oi the pioneer enterprise to Hudson:
'beta and 1 nomas Jenkins, ot Min

concluded to make him an offer, which
tbey did. After some day's negotiation
they came within $200 of striking a bar

obstinate), and as neither would yield
further, the trade foil through, and thev
started up the Hudson, reconnoitering
all the way up untl they came to tlav

The two merchants appear to have
scanned the ground carefully and taken
note as to where on the river they could

HER LITTLE MAN.

'Here comes my little man." The
voice sounded pleasantly on my ear.
and I turned to-look at tho speaker.
Sho was a ruddy cheeked woman of
some forty years, plainly but neatly
dressed; a clean, comfortable looking
body. She was standing at the garden
gate of a small house, and tho words
spoken were not spoken to any visible
person. I then looked ahead, and lo
and behold! her little man was ap
proaching. He was a little feeble look
ing body, rather shabbily dressed, with
a little round red nosu and littlo twink
ling eyes. I should put him down as a
clerk with a by no means gigantio sal
ary. There was nothing romantic or
articularly lovable in his appearance,
jut at thu moment the face of tho
woman was beautiful to look upon by
reason of tho pleasant and strong affec
tion that beamed from it. "Her little
man." He ought to luuo been proud
of it, and I dare say he was.

Then came a long gaze at the number

book. Another long gaze at the con
ductor, who was becoming interested
in the proceedings, and the youth made
no secret of the fact that his number

A tramp, fully up to the standard as

large sign which prohibited smoking in

" What if it should skip a beat!"
As a matter of fact the heart is the
least susceptible to primary disease of
any of our vital organs. It is, however,
very much injured by certain long
continued congestions of the vital
organs, like the kidneys, liver and
stomach. Moreover, blood filled with
uric acid produces a rheumatic tend
ency, and is very injurious to health
ful heart action, it often proves fatalj
and, of course, the uric acid comes
from impaired kidney action.
Roberts, tbe great HEngiish author
ity, sayg that heart disease is chiefly
secondary to some more fatal Inalady
in the' blood or other vital organs.
That is, it is not the original source of
the fatal malady.
The work of the heart is to force
blood into every part of the system. If
the organs are sound it is an easy
task. If they are at all diseased, it is
a very, hard task. Take as an illus
tration : The kidneys are very subject
to congestion and yet, (icing deficient
in the nerves of sensation, this con
gested condition is not indicated by
pain. It may exist for years, unknown
even to physycians, and if it does not
result in complete destruction of the
kidneys, the extra work which is forced
upon the heart weakens it every year,
and a "mysterious" sudden death
claims another victim 1
