EVENING STAR. ?a' .'a " ?!j STRIVE, WAIT, A1VD P*AY. Strive?yet I do not promise The prize you dream of to-day, Will not fade when you think to grasp It, And melt in your hand away; But another and holier treasure You wnuld now perchance disdain, Will come when your toll is over, And pay you for all your pain. AVait?yet I do not tell you The hour you long for now, Will not come with It* radiance vanished, And a shadow upon it* brow; ^ et fir through the misty future, With a crown of starry light, An hour of joy you know not Is winging her silent flight. Fray?though the i?ift you ask for May never comfort vour fears, May never repay y?r pleading, \ et pray, and rvith hopeful tears; An answer, p.t>t that you long for, But divider, will come one day; Your ey&t are too dim to see it, Yet strive, and wait, and pray f THE FIVE HUNCHBACKS We have recently heard a funny anecdote of Talma, trigodian?-hiscuring a tribu lation by aggravating the disease. For several week?, each time that he played. Talma remarked a hnmrMack, who always sat in the Muae place?one of the front stall? at the right of the theatre. This little hunch back w?f' critical., and often evinced hi3 dis approved of cert ain made by the actor, in the most marked and impatient way. This conduct annoyed Talma. Each eve lii.ig he determined that ho would not allow liiuisclf to be disturbed by the opinion of this gentle man. nor to notice his expression of dis aaAi?faction?he would give himself up entirely tVnis part; but this he found was impossible: 'n spito of himself, his eyes were attracted to this villanous little hunchback, whose fatally "magnetic gaze caused him to turn to that part of the stage, and atlast thisevilpower troubled him to that degree, that, of all the audience, he recognized but this one systematic and obsti nate detractor. Talma, irritated, really tried by this influ ence. at length determined to break it up> If po^ible. He called upon the gcntleinap at his own house, and said to him: "Sir. I have come to >jeg a great favor of you Of course I do m,t wish to deprive you of the pleasure of attending the play, nor to insist thai you fihu',1 find me admirable when J have the misfortune to displease y:>u. But I entreat tho*. yon will take some other placo in the hotf*, that I may not have you directly under n> y eye, for I confess that you exert a Strang^. r over me, and that your gesture.- , your niaiutien, your whole person, occupying 'entirely that I feel scarcely able to go oa w ith ray part. ** I "I am sorry for it," sneeringly replied the little hunchback; "but I shall retain my ol>l I f>laee. I do not know why I should change it in orderto render you a service. No, luydear fir. I really am quite unhappy in refusing you; bnt I wish to study you quite at my ease, an 1 I sh:ill retain my accustomed stall *' Talma went away absolutely enraged.

"Oh, another hunchbac^! Why, one would swear this was expressly arrange!?a reiulez von* of three hunchback-*!" A fourth person eaters. A burst of laughter welcome^ the ncwcomcr. lie is a fourth fi/tucJiUuk'. At last, the fifth (invited by Talma) mikes his appearance, and is received with laughu-r and s* miping of feet. The flith is also a huu?-'nba.-k!

About the last of the week I went into a drug store to get some medicine for my child and myself. There were several of the village ph>s? cians in the store, a id one ol tbem seemed to tal e some interest in my case, and, after asking me some questions, said he had been a dyspeptic ami had been greatly benefitted bv the use of IIOOF LAND'S GERMAN BITTERS, prepaid b /ou, and he insisted that 1 would try the Bitters. He also called the next day at my room, and in sisted so much that I would try litem that i asked him to get me one liotfle. He did it. and I com menced taking it as directed, ami 1 was more ben efited by it than all the water and medicine 1 hed ever taken.
