John, the old house servant (he had been .dead and gone this many a-year) came, lugging out the big Chelsea jar—the same jar, Rosamond. It has never had a nick. J wonder if you can say as much for it aftpr half a century! John left it, with tlie spice boxes and the dish of palt, on the marble step, to be handy for me, and 1 began to shrea the roses into it. And as I scatter(;d the velvet petals, it swept over me in a surge that just so the days of my life had gone, and I too wjis a withered flower ;^a,nd as I knelt before the jar, all at oncO my arms fell across it, and my head fell between them, and I was crying such a storm of sobs that I wonder no- one heard me.

A moth-eaten, weather| beater 'coon skin hung above ihe dOoi> which the reporter entered, following his npsCi^ wjiicdi immediately put itself on the defensive. " Whaf do pîëôple imy^skhnk oil for?" said the proprietor; in liis answer repeating the question^ "Why they buy it for rheumatism^ dnd, I say, it never fails to cure.^ The reporter desired to see some purè skunk oil, having heard there were many worthless imitations abroad, and was shown a pint flask of an oily lictuid of the color of linseed oil. He applied his fingers to the cork, and his nose roSe in apprehension. The fluid had no mors and ho worse edof than lafd oil, ami tlm alarmed organ came down again. " We sell it to all sorts of people, white^ black and yellow, the richest and thè poorest." the proprietor continued. "This oil we get from the skinsr-that'a as much of the skunk as I get—and tlie yield is usually about fourj^unces to the Skin. Somctiines we get half a pint, and sometimes, though seldom, as much as a pint to a pelt. There's not more than one skin in 1,000 that'll yield a pint of skunk oil. The animal is thin ift* flesh in summer, but very fat in winter. Skunk hides last year, the bet t quality, were worth from §175 to $2 each. They will not be worth much more than half as mucli this year. 1 handled 20,-000, sjkunk skins last year, nearly all of which were caught in Indiana.; The animal abounds in Southern and Central Indiana. There are a few in this county, not many. The skins have been worth as much as §3.50, but tliey'lf never see that price again—not very soon, at least." " flow are the skins classed?" "Well, first comes the A No. 1 star skunk, selling at 81.75 last winter. This skunk has a star-shaped white spot on the top of the head, and no npro, white about him. The next quality, $1.25, we call the ' short stripe.' Tiiis h:is a white stripe running from the white star along ejvch side oi the head down the neck to the shoulder. The next is the 'n.arrow stripe.' This hiis a long, narrow white streak that runs along each side of the back bone (which lijis a black stripe) to the root of the Uiil.

The old man lay there on one side, twitching and jerking, and with every twitch and jerk blood would spurt out of a vein near his eye way across the room. The poison had gone way up there through his body, and the sight was a terrible one. The preparation was rubbed all over him. and in five minutes he was relieved. In half an hour he began to talk. In three-quarters of an hour he was sitting up in his cot bilking, and in an hour he was about the room. He soon recovered, and was as good as ever. It was a hopeless case, and the old man would certainly have died if the weed had not been applied., I know this remedy to be a certain cure, for I've had oases to try it myself. I never think of snakes but my old friend Liimbert comes into my mind.  " I'll tell J'OU of one case I had in my familji. My daughter, eleven or twelve y^^rs of age, used to go to the hillside for bui' cows. One day sliecame bounding into the house, and screaming with pain.

AIT the tlmeshe was crying with pain, and her limbwsis swelling. In five minutes after I put the stuff on her she stopped crying, and in a little while more the pain all left and she got well.

By-and-bye he began to gnaw the finger-tips of his glove, pulling and twitching spasmodically, and when this had gone on for a long time his friend ventured to ask him what was the irquble.  ; «I'll tell yotii" said LJopre.
