<&M * Qm* [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 9 April 1869

<&M *\ Qm* ITEMS : The Reformed Church recently erected near New Providence, this county, will be dedicated to the service of the Triune God on the last Sabbath in this month. Several prominent ministers will officiate on the occasion. Do our readers know that there has been a large decline in the price of wheat within the last few months? If they do, the retailers and bakers appear not to have realized tho important fact. It is very seriously in contemplation to bring an action of "cruulty to animals" against the editors and correspondents of the AVpress, who so unmercifully ridicule our city School Directors for their action on the subject of the co-education of the sexes in our High School. As the learned and accomplished District Attorney is one of them, he will put the oft'entlers through. How would it do to administer some Senna tea? The two-story briqk building in the rear of Shirk's confestionery, North Queen St., this city, was seriously damaged by fire...

FORTUNES FBEAK-A W00D-SAWYER BECOMES A MILLIONAIRE. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 9 April 1869

FORTUNES FBEAK-A W00D-SAWYER BECOMES A MILLIONAIRE. Wonders never cease; and Fortune, whom all court so assiduously, has no end to the freaks she will play upon mankind. Now we hear from the Dubuque (Iowa) Times, published on Thursday last, that a poor man has suddenly become rich. Bays that journal: Three years ago there resided in this city a sun-burned, hard-fisted, industrious man, n imed Adolph Gull, who earned the food required for the consumption of himself, wife, and family of seven children, by sawing weod from door to door But little was known of his early history beyond the fact that he was an exile from Poland, Europe, an item of in. formation which he imparted to one or two personal friends, wish the further statement that he had relatives living there who were very wealthy, and might place him above want, if so disposed. During the internal feuds and tyrannical government which oppressed that unhappy land, he, with a number of others, determined to emigrate and s...

ONLY ONE BRICK ON ANOTHER [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 9 April 1869

ONLY ONE BRICK ON ANOTHER Edwin was one day looking at a large building which they were putting up just opposite bis father's house. He watched the workmen as they carried up the bricks and mortar, and then placed them in their proper order. His father said to him, "Edwin, you seem to be very much taken up with the brick layers; pray, what may you be thinking about? Have you any notion of learning the trade?" "No," saul Edwin, smiling, "but I was just thinking what a litlto thing a brick is, and yet that great house is built by laying one brick on another." *' very true, my boy. Never forget it. Just so is it in all great works. A11 your learning is only one little lesson added to another. If a man could walk all round the world, it would be by putting one foot before the other. Your whole life will be made up of one little moment after another. Drop added to drop makes the ocean. "Learn from this not to despise little things. Learb also not to be discouraged by great labors. ...

BILLOWS ON BED BUGS [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 9 April 1869

BILLOWS ON BED BUGS I never seen ennybody yet but what dispized bed-hugs. They are the meanest of aul crawling, creeping, hopping, or biting things. They dasent title a man by dalite , but sneak in after dark and chaw ¦ him while he iz fast asleep. A musketo will fite you iu broad dalite at short range, and give you a fair chance to knock in his sides—the flea iz a game bug, and will make a dash at you even in Broadway; but the bed-bug iz a garroter, who waits till you strip, and then picks out a melbw place tew eat you. If I was in the habit of swearing I wouldn't hesitate to cuss a bed-bug rite to his face. Bed-bugs are uncommon smart,in a small way, one pair of them will stock a hair mattress in two weeks with bugs enuff tew last a small family for a whole year. It don't do enny good to pray when bed-bugs are in season; the only way to get rid of them iz to bile the whole bed in aquafortis, and then heave it away and buy a new one. J Bed-bugs, when they have grone Aul the...
