McKnight is having the matresses made up for his boat, n'nd in a few days she will be fully equipped and ready for service. Judge Ragan, of Montgomery, was in town this week. He is grimly humorous, as of old, and looks as young as ten years ago. Because "Ruth Ramay" writes about "The Emerald Maiden," our readers are not to infer that she is "green" in either an envious or a rustic sense. While "projecking" with a pis tol a few evenings ago, Mr. L Mc Neely shot himself in the little fin ger, the ball luckily striking his ring, which saved the finger, but gave him a very sore hand.

TILE CIIICRONICLE. ((),lF FX. - I.o I ANA FRIENDS IN HEAVEN. A brown.halred, blue-eyed wee one, Grown weary. and t!red of p'ay, Climbed up on my knee to ask me In her simple. childish way: "iave you any friends In Heaven, That you sometimes want to see?"' Can you guess how the question thrilled me Like a m.nor melody? I thought, as I sat in the twilight, With that wee one on my knee. Of my little blue-eyed baby Whose summers numbered three: She went from my arms to heaven One spring-time years ago, And left in my heart that sorrow That only mothers know. I thought how the baby's father Grew lonesome, and longed to hold Once more on his breast our baby With hair of sunset gold. And one summer eve he left me To search for our baby of three. And I know full well he found her, But he never came back to be. Do I ever want to see them? Oh! child of the violet eyes, My heart has gone on before me To the hills of Paradise. Some day I shall feel their kisses Drop balm on my weary heart, Miue...

Ira:--On the first day of June, 1881, I lay at my residence in this city surrounded by my friends and waiting for death. Heaven only knows the agony I then endured, for words can never describe it. Anti yet, if a few years previous any one had told me that I was to b9 brought so low, and by so terrible a disease, I should have scoffed at the idea. 1 had always hen uncommonly strong and healthy, and weighed over 2qJ pounds, and hardly knew, ii mry own ex perience, what pain or sickness were. Very many people who will read this statement realize at times they are unusa:nlly tired and can not niaccount for it. They feel dull pains in vari,:us iartl of the hody) and do not uiilerstand whyv.
