At the olore of the war big father and himself found themselves in straitened cironmstanor a, nu 1 the latter, in order to earn liveli hood, became a'dealer in boots and shoes, iu the city of New Orleans. Too close an attention to business overtaxed bis strength and seriously impaired bis health, and to add to this affliction he soon afterward received a sunstroke which entirely prostrated him. Pa ralysis was an immediate consequence. He soon recovered the power of loco motion, and at first the disease did not seem to affect very seriously the organs of speech ; but by-and-by he experi enced a marked difficulty of utteranoe, whioh gradually grew upon him. His mental sensations, in the meantime, while they did not betoken any weak ening of the brain, were far from pleas ant. It was not till 1875 that he entire ly lost the power of articulation.

TOR THE TODNQ FOLKS. Tha Ortajla f Ike Jamplnar-Jack. Something like twenty years ago, miserable brick house in a back alley was the home of Archibald Ramsey, a Bootoh carpenter. He worked down town in a shop, making oornices, mold ings, mantels, and a variety of the more elaborate parts employed in finishing houses. Every evening he took horn" pocketfnls, and often handfnls also, of bits and ends from the shop. These oddly shaped fragments of soft, sweet-smelling pine furnished amuse ment for poor little Aleo, Mr. Ramsey's hunchback boy ; and when they had served this purpose, they were used as kindlings in the kitchen stove. There was a houseful of little Ram sevs. of whom Aleo was the oldest, and when he was amused, so were the others, thus giving the overworked mother time for other duties. Aleo was sixteen years old, and not taller than an average boy of ten. He was very mroh deformed, and had he lived in an age and country of kings seeking dwarfs and human oddities fc ? oonrt ...

The lowest State averages, according to the special report issned by the agricultural department at Wash ington, are in Iowa and Nebraska, both of whioh States increased their products largely too great for home consumption and too remote from leading markets bringing the price down to about one half that of 1876.
