The Tragedy at Dodd's Place.
He came into the store -with a face full
of misery and sat down npon a box be
side the stoye and began to cry. It
w3 a queer thing for a man like that to
do a groat, rough laborer, fifty years
of age or more. Some dreadful trouble
must have come upon him to make him
show his sorrow in that way without dis
guise. The strangers staredjsympathet
ically. After awhile the proprietor of
the store went up to him and said :
well, neignbor, you seem to be m
trouble; can we help you any?"
The man did not look up; he shook
his head and said:
iso, no nos it a very kind of you,
out noDouy can neip me. 1 suppose
you mint l m an old tool; but she was
all the family I had, and she's dead;'
and a great tear splashed down upon the
"ouesaeau. xoucan t do me any
good now; but if you'd come around to
my little shanty thereabout nine o'clock
last night you might have done some
good I dunno. When a man is deter
mined to make a brute of himself he'l
do it, perhaps; but if there'd been some
one there to say, ' Dodd, what on airth
are you about.' why, mebbe I dunno
tho 1 was mad. When a man's ma
and has a glass to much, what's the use
of talking to him? It's fixed things for
me. Anyway Lord, forgive me! she's
The tears splashed down again, but
the people looked at him with faces that
had lost a little of their sympathy.
"You didn't didn't do anything to
bring it on whatever it was?" said an
old lady with a large basket on her arm.
I shouldn t have thought it of you
"lesjx did l did, sobbed the man
" If it hadn't been for me it
would have happened. I loved her, too
Yes, I did love her. Nobody could say
she'd ever had a hard word from me be
fore in all the days we'd lived together;
but last night I'd had a glass to much,
and I stopped at the butcher's down in
the village and bought a bit of steak
a man wants a change from pork once
in the way and she was fond of steak,
she was; and I jest fetched it in and said
to her, ' We'll have a supper to-night,
eh?' and she sort of nodded and winked
at me jest as jolly, and then I went out
to the well to draw water, and as a body
does sometimes when anybody is in a
hurry, I lost the bucket off, and I was
a terrible time in finding it, and when
I went in well, you see, I went in with
an appetite and there she sat, and
well.I ain't dainty, but I couldn't have
touched that steak to save me; and I got
mad. Well, I got madder than I ever
was before, and I iust arnnnd n1
gave her a kick. Yes, I did. If I was
to be hung for it to-morrow, I'd have
to own up. I kicked her."
"You brute!" said the woman with
the basket; "kicked her because your
steak didn't suit you! Well may you
"Yes'm," said the man. "You can't
peak harder to me than I feel to my
self. I kicked her in the side, and what
is more, I opened the door and kicked
her out of it, and then I jest sat down
alongside my fire and talked the worst
kind to myself I did indeed. Lord,
forgive me! and I said I'd never let her
in again. Yes'm you can look as you
like at me; I deserve it; and then I went
"Went to bed and left her out in the
cold?" said the old lady. " Never see
ing whether she was dead or not."
"Yes, I did," said the poor man, sob
bing hard, "and more than that, I went
to sleep. I slept sound, too; and what
do you suppose waked me? Why, her
voice I knew it from a thousand. It
cwas the awfulest shriek, and then an
other, and another, and it came all over
me what I had done. I turned her that
had slept alongside of me winter nights
more years than I can remember out in
to the cold night. I'd kicked her out.
Oh, I was sober then I tell you. I saw
what a brute I was to do such a thing
like that, all for a bit of paltry steak,
and I got up and went to tho door and
I called, but she didn't come. I called
again, and then I heard her scream,
but fainter and further off; and then I
felt a kind of horror coming over me,
and I dressed myself and took my lan
tern and went out. I walked this way
and that, I looked and called, I swung
the lantern low and high. There wasn't
a sign of her, and at last I got down to I
Bolter's pond, there by the edge of the
woods, you know, and I heard a kind
of growling; and past me, all in a hur
ry, as they go when they've been do
ing mischief flew those dogs of Bol
ter'sfierce devils! but they knew
enough to be afraid of me then.
" And when I saw them my heart
stood still, and I swung the lantern low
again, and I saw her. She lay along
side the pond, and her gray hairs were
dabbled in blood, and tho marks of
the dog's teeth were on her neck; and I
jest took her up in my arms and hurried
along the road home and brought
her to the fire, and I cried over her and
called her all the pet names I used to
call her when I first had her a little
young thing; but it wasn't any use
she was jest as stiff and cold, and I laid
her down on the bed, and there she's
laid ever since. Oh! it's dreadful!"
"Yes, and you deserve to be hung,"
said the old lady; "but now suppose
she isn't dead, and maybe she isn't.
Let us go over with you, and stop and
fetch the doctor. Folks have been
bfrought to that seemed dead. Away,
it's all right."
"Well, I'll do it" said the man, "but
it's no use, I know. "
The proprietor of the store called his
wife to wait on it, and he headed a pro
cession of his customers, and they all
went down to Dodd's cabin, calling on
the doctor as they passed his house, an 1
taking him with them. But when they
came to the lonely little house no one
cared to be the first to go in, but at last
the doctor, as being best used to such
things, opened the door and stepped
in. It was a mean little room, and fur
nished only with a table, two chairs,
some shelves, and a bed, and an old
gray cat washing her face.
As soon as Dodd's eye rested on this
animal he uttered a cry of joy and flew
to her side; but she at once sat up her
back and uttered a loud "Mee-ow,"
while her tail swelled to immense pro
portions. " Oh, I don't mind. I don't mind,"
said Dodd, " I deserve you should be
mad at me anything, anything, so as
your'e alive. She's come to life again.
Glory, glory, glory!"
"Why, you don't me in to say you
were talking about a cat all the while?"
screamed the woman with the basket.
"You said she didn't cook your meat
properly, and "
"No'm," said Dodd. "I meant to
s iy she ate most of it up for me, and
chawed what she didn't eat; but she's
welcome. So that she's alive, I don't
care, 'l hough she s weaned from me;
I see that. Our happy times are over:
she doubts me."
" Called me in to a cat, indeed!" said
" Left my business for a cat!" cried
" Oh, what an old fool!" said the wo
Miaw!" yelled the attendant train of
boys; but old Dodd never looked at them.
He listened to none of their insults, and
they left him doing his best, with tears
in his eyes, to get that offended cat up
to take a little milk from a saucer that
he held before her lips, and saying;
" Oh. make up Pussey. your own Dodd
will never do it any more." Pictorial

Toning Down our Xiives.
Is there a word in all the dictionary
more full of meaning than the word
In this world we hardly know its full
meaning. At an artist's reception one
day I saw a picture of a mountain sun
rise, and I wondered at its marvelous
depths, richness, and splendor of shade
and color, till the artist told me how he
had toned down tho picture and soften
ed its color into its subdued harmony
of tint; and I thought how often ou
life was growing to be like that picture
of a mountain sunrise. God's unseen
hand is before the easel, aketching here
and shading there. The life-picture
looks to us unfinished, fragmentary,
and imperfect now, but each new joy
light, each sorrow-shade is toning it
down through all its gloom and glory
into harmony with God's great ideal.
He will frame it at last in such a setting
of events as He chooses, and we shall
find in that great gallery above, that the
light has been in the right place, and
the shadow too.
We might never see the beautiful
sunrise gilding the hills of our eternal
future, were it not for . the crooked
winding path and misty streaks along
the valley of tears up through which
we have climbed, as hue after hue more
brightly gleamed through the very
dusky ground of sorrow. Our life's
picture looks often too dark, its troubles
too glaring, its griefs too sharp and
rough ; we fear it will never be finished
right, but behind all is a master-hand
touching it cunningly, and toning it
down into celestial harmony. Each
soul left fully in the hands of the
Divine Artist will open into everlasting
Gentle Words. There is a magic
power in gentle words, the potency of
which few natures are so icy as wholly
to resist. Would you have your home
a cheerful, hallowed spot, within which
may be found that peace and happiness
and joy which the world denieth to
its votaries ! Let no harsh words be
uttered within its walls.
Speak gently to the wearied husband,
who, with anxious brow, returns from
the perplexities of his daily avocations;
and let him, in his turn speak gently to
the care-worn woman and wife, who,
amid her never-ending round of little
duties, find rest and encouragement in
the sympathy of him she loves. Speak
gently to the wayward child; and a
pleasant smile and a word will often re
store good humor and playfullness.
Speak gently to the dependent who
lightens your daily toil; kind words
insure respect, while the angry re
buke provokes impertinence and dis
like. Speak gently to the aged; many
are the trials through which they have
passed, and now in a little while they
will be missed from their accustomed
places; the spirit will have passed to its
rest. The remembrance of an unkind
word will then bring with it a bitter
Speak gently to the erring one; are
we not all weak and liable to err?
Temptations, of which we cannot judge,
may nave surrounded him. Harshness
will drive him on the sinful way;
gentlness may win him back to virtue.
Spirit of the Age.
An. Englishman crossed the channel
to France, and was exceeding;! v dis
turbed by the fact that he couldn't un
derstand a word of the French Ian-
guage. He was met at the depot by a
Frenchman, and the driver of the cab
talked to him in French. When he got
to the hotel he found nothing but the
French language there, and a man with
the French language took him to his
couch at night, and he was almost ex
hausted because of his incapacity to
understand anything that was said to
him, and in sad mind he went to 6leep.
In the morning he woke up, and heard
the chanticleer crow, and he said,
"Thank goodness, there's some Eng
lish at last."

June is the month of love, joy, and
August that of its agony, in J une two
hearts knit together and become one.
In August two bodies separate. ue
goes away to see her mother's aunt in
the country, and he stays at home, work
ing the treadmill of duty. This comes
hard on all men, but its weight is the
heaviest on the grocery clerk. His heart
is not in his work. How can it be?
Where the treasure is there will the
heart be also, and the treasure is far
away. He cannot smile on the custom
er, lie cannot counterfeit successfully
that expression of all-absorbing interest
which makes clerkship a thing of beau
ty. Certainly his is a most critical task.
The variety and diversity of the articles
in which he deals require that he should
keep his wits about him. In this par
ticular he is in almost as much danger
as the drug clerk, while the opportum
ties for slipping are a hundred fold. A
Danbury man, who went into a drug
store to "have a prescription prepared,
seeing nobody but the clerk present,
"Young man, are you keeping com'
pany with a girl?"
"Yes sir," answered the clerk, with
" Do you think the world of her?"
" I do," said the clerk, firmly, al
though blushing considerably.
" Is she in town?" pursued tho cus
" No, sir; she is away on a visit."
" That will do," said the man, decis
ively. "You can't fool around any pre
scription for me." And he went away
But it is the grocery clerk who has to
struggle from early morn till late at
night with a flood of annoyances. When
he dips into the sugar barrel he thinks
of her lips and sighs. In cutting the
cheese he is reminded of the strength
of his devotion to her, and when he
looks into the butter firkin his thoughts
stray to her hair. WThen he would eo
away by himself and crive expression to
his emotions he is obliged to help lift a
barrel of corned beef, or roll
a cask of salt or open a cask of lard
It is only when he is dealinc: out mack

There is that softene'd, subdued light in
the eye of a salt mackerel which touches
a responsive chord in the heart of suf
feringand awakens it to plantive melody.
How tenderly he lifts it from the kit,
how lovingly he lingers in wrapping it
up. Poor fellow! He may put up
washing starch for baking powder, draw
molasses in the kerosene can, and even
attempt to palm off various things for
tea. He may do this. It is more than
likely he will. But the expression of a
mackerel's eye will not change. The
soft, subdued light of sympathy still
remains. Danbury 2feics.
The European Plan. Y'esterday
evening a stranger, clad in a duster and
carrying a carpet-sack, entered a hotel
on Delaware avenue. He marched
straight up to the counter, where the
amiable landlord stood picking his
teeth, and the moment he set his bag
down the amiable landlord whisked it
off and set it down with the pile of other
baggage in the rear of the bar.
"Please register your name," said tho
landlord, passing him a pen.
" How much is it, mister?"
"That depends on what
We keep hotel hero on the
" I say mister," said the countryman,
all in a tremble, "please give me that
bag, and I'll get right out and not say
The landlord glared at him, "but made
no movement towards the bag.
" Pleabe, mister, give me my bag.
There is nothing in it but a few shirts,
indeed there isn't. Here's the key. I'll
let you search it," continued the stranger,
trembling still more violently.
The landlord passed him the bag, and
as tho stranger instantly shot for the
door the former exclaimed:
"Well, blame mo if I ain't puzzled to
know what kind of a fool you are."
But the stranger paused to hear no
compliments, and he was a good half
mile away before he took courage to lean
up against an awning-post and mutter:
" Gracious! what an escape. Keep a
hotel on the you rope in plan, does
he? I suppose he wanted to rope me in
aud perhaps kill me. Lord! what wick
ed places these cities are. I'll go home
immediately." And he kept his word.

A Remarkable Dog. A Milwaukee
paper relates the following: Mr. Nelson
Strong, living on First avenue, between
Orchard and Mitchell streets, has a
black-and-tan dog that is just now en
gaged in a domestic enterprise worthy
of record. The dog is a female, and a
number of months ago gave birth to a lit
ter of pups that were reared and weaned
by her. A short time ago Mr. Strong
brought home a pup and placed it with
his dog. She took to tho strange pup
kindly and allowed it to nurse. Her
full flow of milk was brought back, and
suddenly she was missed from home.
Search was made and the dog was found
in a neighboring alley with a large lit
ter of kittens upon a large sheet of brown
paper and kept them on it, apparently
for safety. Near by was the dead body
of the mother of the kittens, probably
killed by some dog, who has always
manifested great hatred for cats. The
dog, with the kittens, was removed to
Mr. Strong's residence, and they are now
there to be the wondered at by visitors
who go in to see themselves the strange
sight of a black-and-tan dog nursing a
litter of rapid-growing felines. The
case attracts a great deal of interest
here, and will be something for the cu
rious to wonder at.
She Met Her Match. Some time
since, on one of the Hudson river boats,
a lady who had attracted much attention
for the masculine turn of her manners
and conversation, was seated at the table
opposite a gen tlenan, who, in taking
some butter, in the absence of the usual
knife, used his own, which the lady ob
serving, she called aloud to the waiter:
"Wait-ta!" bring anotherplate of but
ter; that man (pointing to the gentle
man) had his knife in this!"
The unfortunate wight almost sank
under the curious gaze of the company,
but said nothing, determined to watch
his opportunity to return, for the cruel
mortification, change in her own coin.
He waited a moment ere a plate of dried
beef was handed to the lady, who uncer
emoniously took some in her fingers
and placed it upon her plate.
"Wait-ta!"' exclaimed the gentleman
in turn, "bring another plate of beef;
that woman has had her fingers in this!"
A most ungallant roar from all the
company fairly turned the tables against
the lady, and she had the good sense to
acknowledge its desert, and join heartily
in the mirth it created.

A journal of unsurpassed merit iu every feature
of a family newspapc r the proprietors seem to
have overstepped their accustomed liberality in
an astonishing: desrree. Such advantacfioim in.
ducements for the efforts of amateur canvassers
were probably never offered before by the man
agers of any journalistic enterprise iu the
United States; and, in fact, there is hardly any
other agency extant that can afford a bona tide
ucireuiafjo ox iuii nny per cent, ou the casli
basis. The proprietors of tho C.a
recently inaugurated a distribution of prizes for
the remuneration of persons getting up clubs,
on a scale which affords an average compensa
tion of $1 for each subscriber obtained at S2.50
lor one year s subscription to the paper. Sub
scribers from the number of three up to three
hundred are accounted clubs, and prizes are
awarded correspondingly. The list embraces
AB.TICLES OF UTILITY AND OBNAMENT,
Selected from every available department of
trade, with critical regard to the pleasure and
gratification of aspirants; and as a complete
guarantee that the various prizes entirely fill
the value they represent, the canvasser for a
club has the option of commuting by drawing
the stated value of a prize in gold coin. As an
example, any rarson of energy who finds it
practicable to obtain a club of 300 in his local

cottage piano, or a finely finished buggy, if so
Preferred, either of which premium is valued at
5375 ; or he can receive that amount in gold
coin instead. Then for efforts on a smaller ra

watches of the first make, libraries of st indard
works, farm wagons, gang plows and other im
proved agricultural implements which would

From Hon, IV. It. Jonrn, or U -l luvrr,
" I have been troubled from my boy
hood with chronic or hereditary lungcom plaint.
Some years since, early in the winter, I took cold,
which as usual settled into a severe cough, which
continued to increase as the season advanced, al
though I made use of all the cough remedies I
had knowledge of. My family physician also
prescribed for me, but I experienced no relief.
During all this time I was'gradnally running
down, losing flesh and strength, until my friends
as well as myself became very much alarmed,
thinking I should waste away in consumption.
While iu Boston, during the Spring following, I
was induced to try Wistab's Balsam of Wild
Cherry. After one day's trial I was sensible
that it was relieving me; in ten days time my
cough had entirely ceased, and I was 6oon res
tored to health and strength. I have ever since
kept the Balsam: in my house, and whenever any
member of my family has a cough or cold, it is
immediately resorted to. No family should be
without it. Sold by all druggists.

Why? Not because it was not well
built, but it was wrongly run.' Thousands of
men who have run down long before their three

have been renewed into sprightliness and vim
if they had tried the yell-known Peruvian Sy
rcp, which contains among its compounds the
Protoxide of iron, so combined that it assimi
lates with the blood and invigorates the whole
system. This Syrup has proved efficacious in
thousands of cases, and will do everybody good
who uses it. All druggists keep it. "

There are many of the age of thirty to sixty wh
are troubled with too frequent evacuation of; i
bladder, often accompanied by a slight smartlngor
burning sensation, and a weakening of the system
in a manner the patient cannot account for. On ex
amining the urinary deposits a ropy sediment wlU
often be found, and sometimes simhII particles of al
bumen will appear, or the col be of a thin and
milklsh hue, again changing to i. 'ark and torpid
appearance. There are many men - ho die of this
difficulty ignorant of the cause, which is the second
stage of seminal weakness. Dr. Wpluney will guar
an tee a perfect cure in all such cases, and a healthy
restoration of the genlto-nrlnary organs.
