game was played fairly, but at a fair

won, but it was because the gambler

(The late editor o f The Herald sends in a clipping
bearing the “ pome” given below, having evidently
noticed our appeals to delinquents, and having had
some experience in that line himself.)
Last eveninq / was talking
With a printer aged and gray,
Who told me of a dream he had,
/ think
’twas Christmas day.
White snoozing in his office,
The vision came to uiew,
For he saw an Angel enter,
Dressed in garments white ar.d new.
Said the Angel, “I ’m from Heaven,
The Lord has sent me down
To bring you up to Glory
And put on your golden crown.
You’ve been a friend to everyone,
And worked hard night and day;
You’ve supported many thousands,
And from few received your pay.
So we want you up in Glory,
For you've labored hard,
Ana the good Lord is preparing
Your eternal,¡ust reward."
Then the Angel and the printer
Started up toward Glory’s Gate;
But when passing close to hades,
The Angel mumured “Wait!
I ’ve a place to show gou —
Its the hottest place in hell —
Where the ones who never paid you
In torment always dwell.”
And behold, the printer saw there
His old customers by the score,
And grabbing up a chair and fan
He wished for nothing more;
But was bound to sit and watch them
As they sizzled, singed and burned,
And his eyes would rest on debtors,
Whichever way they turned.
Said the Angel, “Come on printer,
There’s the Pearly Gates to see. ”
But the printer only murmured,
“ This is Heaven enough for me.”

Buck In tbe seventies of the last een
tury, when oil wells were spouting and
farmers who bad beeu living oil bog
and hominy In a ' twinkling found
themselves millionaires, a Pennsylva-
nlan of German descent doing his
spring plowing was accosted by a man
who asked:
"Are you Herman Slyder?"
“ Yes.”
"You own thla farm?”
“ Yes."
"Is It for sale?"
"H ow much?"
“ I'll give you a million dollnrs for It.'
Sl.vder left the plow standing In tbe
Held, and, accompanying the stranger
Into the house, after a long parley sold
his farm for F2.250.00l). He was great
ly elated till another mnn came nlong
and offered him F2.500.000. Then he
was plunged In misery, considering
that he had lost the difference.
A couple o f years passed. The Sly
der family were now city people and
rolling In wealth. The children were
being educated. The adage “ You can't
make a silk purse out o f a sow ’s ear"
docs not always pertain to youth.
Katrina, the oldest daughter, was a
pretty girl, and It was remarkable with
what futility she withdrew from the
farmhouse and stepped Into the parlor.
When she was twenty years old she
would pass current In any society.
But her father never got rid o f Ills
plowman's gait, and her mother never
acquired the manner of a Indy.
'This does not mean that Mrs Slyder
was uot ambitious. Though she knew
she could uot herself shine lu high
life, she saw an opportunity for her
daughter to shine there. The leap the
family had rnude from poverty to af­
fluence caused her to coudemn any
in ancestor and win. She thoroughly
understood the |>ower of money and
made a deal with the herald for a
much better origin. Ho at once un­
earthed Baron Herman Shuyder, who
In the fifteenth century got very rich

through tbe valley below his castle.
A son had emigrated to Jamestown,
Va„ and tbe name bad become cor­
rupted to Slyder. Tbe name Herman,
however, bud been retained among hla
descendants. Tbe castle bad fallen to
decay, and tbe Sbnydera, who bad be­
come very poor, were desirous o f soil­
ing it
This find cost Slyder a thousand dol­
lnrs. which bis w ife considered, as she
expressed It, "dirt cheap.” The castle
was purchased and repaired, and the

send for Sl.vder to welcome him back
to the home of his distinguished an­

had been stubbed in ihe bowels by a

“ Since manufacturing a family seems

Entering tbe shop, they examined the
treasures there and In a corner found
a number o f articles, consisting of
