THE OLD HOME.
"Return return" the voice cried
"To your old valley far away;
For aof tly ou the river tide
The touder lights aud shadows play:
And all the baujts are gay with flowers
Aud all th. hills are awet with thyme;
You eautiot find such bloom as ours
Io you bright forsigu clime!"
For me I thought tho olive grow
The aim lie. warm upon tho vinos;
And yet I will arise tutl go
l'o that dear valley dim with plnos!
Old loves are dwelling there I said
Untonuhod by years of clmua aud paiu;
Old faiths that I had counted dead
Shall rise aud live again.
And still Rettirn return" they sung
"With na abides eternal calm; . .
In those old fields where you wero young
We cull the heart's-euse and the balm;
For us the Hocks and herds iuoreasu. .
And childrou play around our feet;
At eve tho sun goes down in poace
: Return for rest is swyt."
Then I arose and crossod the tea
Aud sought that home of youngot days;
No love of old was loft to me
' (For love has whigs and soldora stays;)
Bat there were graves upou the hill
And sunbeams shiuiuu on the sod ' '
And low winds breathing' "Peace be still? j

TLe door ' opouod suddenly and a
woman stepped in. She was the'very
picture of agony ; hor hair dishevelled
her dress negligent her eyes 'unsteady
and her movements ecoontric Sue
seemed to hesitate at first but at
length gathering courage she moved
up to the bar and said :
" Landlord don't sell my husband
any moro rum. You have already
ruined us ! You know that before ho
came to your bar he was a sober man.
He' was as kind a husband us any wo-
man ever had. We had a good home
a good farm and every comfort. But
you sold him liquors until he had no
money to pay. Unknown to me yon
got a mortgage on his farm ; you sold
it and turned me and my helpless
children out dt. it! 3VJy husband

wretched hovel into the cold and

tavern infuriated like a demon. My
once kind and amiable husband and
the tender father 'is a madman when
in liquor. He beats my children cru-
elly and threatens to murder us! OI
don't glee him any more liquor I aud
tho tears gushed from her eyes while
the landlord stood speechless.
In the midst of theso entreaties
which should Lave broken a heart of
adamant a man stepped into the bar
room with the vacant stare of an ine-
briate aud moved toward the bar.
Instantly the pleading wife threw
herself between the man and the bar
and one Land again.st his breast and
the otLer stretched out imploringly to
tLo landlord sLe said.
"Oh don't my dear! don't drink!
You'll break my heart!" aud bursting
with agony she turned to the laud-

And while this scene was pussing
heart rendincr and awful bej'ond
description the landlord walkod de-
liberately out from bohind tho coun-
tor and taking the woman rudely by
the arm said "This is no place for
women" and violently tore her from
her husband and pushing her out
shut the door against her.
The wretched inebriate staggered
and drank his dram placed a piece of
monoy upon the counter tho land
lord wiped it off complr.cantly into
the drawe- and tuo drunkard passed
out maddened with the draught to
renew his brutal attacks upon his de
fenceless wife and children.
No one defended such barbarous
cruelty as this. No. one apologized
for it. All agreed to pronounce tlio
landlord worse than a brute. But
there was one fact deserving of spe

It is learned that Minister Foster's
recent negotiations with Spain did
not have iu view another reciprocity
treaty as. was supposed but lookod
to tho establishment of freer commer
cial relations between the Unitod
States and tho Spanish colonies and
especially to tho lessoning of tho an-
noyances and mitigating tho onerous
regulations to which shipping merch-
ants "aro subject in trading with
Cuba. There' is reason to beliove
that Minister Foster succeeded in
his mission although all official in-
formation is denied. ' ! :
Many of the uewly appointed dem-
ocratic officials hold stale or city of-
ficos and undor tho executive ordr
of Gen. Grant made in 1S72 feder
al offioials ara prohibited from hold
ing state or municipal offices. In
quiries aro being received especially
at the Fost Ollico Department 'to
know whether' this order is in force.
Tho reply is made' that it ia still in
operation and it Can only be recind-
ed by on order of tlio 1'residont. As
these oCicialsai-e members of boards
of supervisorsand act in other capac-
ities in carrying on. the elections the
enforcement of tlio order will bo felt

Gen. Atkins the commissioner of
Indian affairs proposes to profit from

that he asks for. Tho total amount
which he will ask for will be larger
than tho amount appropriated last

tional system among the Indians will
be extended and as far as possible
tho government will take charge of
all schools instead of carrying them
on in connection with tho religious
societies. Mr. Atkins has traveled
extensively among the Indians since

Collect ou Delivery.
A man who had not been long in
this country was employed as a do-
mestic ia a family aud upon one oc-
casion ho was Bent to the express
offico to obtain a package Ho was
about to leave with it when tho clerk
called his attention to tho three letters
Pat had no ' idea what the letters
meant but ho cleverly .guessed at
"It's all right he said ; " the owld
man's good for the money."
" But you know whut theso letters
"Indudo I do. Call On Dad. It's
as plain as the uose on your face."
There is almost a pathetic truth in
tho understanding conveyed in this
old story. Many ft man is bounded
to death by tho unreasonable calls
made upon "him by members' of his
family who are educated up to this
very end by himnolf ut first in that
fond slavish spirit of
which the American father displays
toward Ins offspring as if it were some .
kind of an unthinking mechanical pet
and afterwards ou the unfailing prin-
ciple that they who sow the wind will
reap the whirlwind.

Ono of the worst obstacles to the
spread of thogospel is the ur.christiau
conduct of men aud nations who boar
the Christian name. England's com
pulsory imposition of tho opium trufiic
upon China and the recent nnjustilia
ble aggressions of France have un
doubtedly led the Chinese people to
draw conclusions unfavorable to tho
religion of the English and Fronch.
Tho United States also is hardly in
a position to throw stones at France
and England. An act of injustice to
China of a quarter of ft century's
standing still testifies against us. In
1858 an indemnity of $730000 for
alleged outrages ou American citizens
was exacted from China by the Usi'M
States. After every claim that could
be proved was paid with intercut at
twelve per cent there still remained
d balance of 2-10000' which invested
in bonds has grown to $581000. This
monoy rightfully belongs to China
and every president from Gen. Grant
down has recommended its return

A Veteran of Waterloo.
Cincinnati Omo Oct 1 John .
Wcntzel a well-known resident of
Cumminsville diod at his residence
on Lingo street Wednesday morning
at four o'clock agod eighty-nine years.
Jlr. Wcntzel was born in the city of
Mainz on tho Main river. His father
was an officer under Napoleon I.
which entitled him to serve as one of
the Younff guards. At sixteen yeara
of ago h was at the battle of Water-
loo but his regiment did not arrive
on the memorable battlefield until tho
fortunes of the day had been docidod.
A few years latCr emigrating to this
country he enlisted in the service of
the Unitod States and served through
the Sominolo war narrowly escaping
donth whilo carrying dispatches his
two companions being killed by am-
bushed Indians and himself severely
wounded. He crossod the continent
with 'Fremont the " Pathfinder" and
if his varied experiences were collec-
ted in a volume it would read like a-
romnnce. Before this he served in
the Mexican war and was never bet-
ter pleased than when sitting with an
attentive group around he told " of
hairbreadth 'scapes by flood and Hold"
He was a kind neighbor and good
citizen. TLe little folks especially .
will miss the cheerful smile and kind-
ly wor.l of gruoting from Grandpa
Wentzel and those of older years .
will miss the bright active old genr ;i
tlemim who could aay truthfully "I.
saw t he great Napoleon on tho ..field
at Waterloo." But the grim reaper
Death has scorod unother victory .
and ho who paired safely through r
four wars succumbed at last to the
ravages of old age. ; .
