T* i e * * z * 111 - i* sr m 5 • r .s_Sj_ ONE DOU.AU A YEAH. Volume 11. BURWELL’S BANNER BRICKS [LITTLK I.IKS I.AVIKIILV^LOi'ALI/.Kl).] There was a chap down on Main street yesterday with a lifting machine. It was warranted to restore n torpid liver, cure cold feet, remove freckles and do ever so many things, and it was only five cents to lift and tug and pull and grow red in the face and bulge your eyes out like half onions stuck upon a barn door. There was a trick about the machine. By pressing a spring the handle would come off as the pointer reached ten pounds. After ever so many men had lifted ever so many hundred pounds a woman got down out of a one-horse wagon and inquired: “What d’ye call it?” “A lilting machine, madame.” “Is it good for a woman?” “Excellent, madame. You will feel like a new woman after lifting 800 pounds on this machine.” “Well, I’ll try it one,” she said, as she removed her shawl. “The old man is a good deal bigger than this machine, and if I can’t lift hi...

Jennie remained perfectly quiet, though her heart beat so loud that she thought they must Ifear it outside. In a moment the knocking ceased. “Folks asleep,” she could hear one of the men say. “Asleep, or dead, or run away,” the other one growled. “Shall wo try the window?” Jennie trembled all over, but the sash held firm. “Oh, come on!” exclaimed his companion. “Don’t let us waste time; we can splice the shafts with the halter.” Then they moved off again, and Jennie breathed more freely. If the shafts were broken, it would take some time to mend them, and the pursuing party might yet arrive in time. Mr. Allen, whom Jennie knew to be the president of the Leicester Bank, had the fastest horse in the country, and ought to be able to make up at least ten minutes in ten miles. For a while there wafc quiet outside. The men were evidently working at (h shafts, and only the stamping of the horse’s feet gave any signs of life. Jennie began to get nervous, and to listen more intently for the ...

Five dollars were raised as a purse to the man who could tell the biggest lie. After guessing at the number of pages in a book to see who should spin the first, the fat man who was seated on the bar proved to be the best guesser. “Well,” he began, shifting his cigar to the other side of his mouth, “a wealthy country editor—” “Hold on,” rang out the voices of the party as but a single man, “you can have the purse.” ‘•I feel so tired this mornin’ I can hardly lift me arrum to me head.” “Why, you seemed to sleep soundly, Mr. O’Kelly; you ought to feel refreshed." “Vis, doctor, I ought to be feelin' refrished, but I ain't.

I may as well stay where I am. And after all, why should I be afraid of Mr. Barthorne?” she thought. Mr. Barthorne checked his rein as he saw the pretty young school teacher tl\ere under the cedar. He nodded pleasantly. “Fine day, Miss Alice!” said he, wiping his brow with the identical yellow silk pocket handkerchief which had but now served as a duster for his boots. “Yes,” said Alice, standing like some fair wood nymph beside the spring. “Please, Mr. Barthorne, what did she say?” “What did who say?” said (he middle-aged gentleman, turning scarlet. “Miss Negley.

Half-Way! Have you torgoUen where we stood Between the lights, that night of Spring, The river rolling to the flood, So sad the birds, they dared not sing? No love was ever dream’d like this, Beneath the shadows of the park, Between a whisper and a kiss, Between the daylight and the dark! There had been trouble—this was rest; There had been passion—this was peace: The sunset dying in the west Made Nature sigh and whispers cease. I only felt what 1 had found, You only knew what I would say; But nothing broke the peace profound Between the darkness and the day! t How will it end? I cannot tell; I asked it many months ago, Before the leaves ot Autumn fell, • And chang’d to Winter’s waste of snow. Yet we stand watching at the gate Of summer-time lor promise—bark! No love, ’tis nothing! we must wait Between the daylight and the dark! —Clement Scott. A BITTER CUP. Mr. Martin had just come in to tea. It was one of those sultry summer evenings when the leaves hang stirlessty on the trees, a...
