'I lie word lady is used in this letter
as the holy saint John used it in his
Letters. She of whom I am to write
was a woman of exalted worth and
character, and was also adorned with
those gifts and graces of crson and
intellect which are thcjicculiar marks
of a lady. .
In college my classmate, and for a
time my roommate, was Lowell bmitli.
He went home toward the end of our
course to spend a vacation, and then and
there in the town of Heath, Massarhu
setts.he found a beautiful girl of nineteen
teaching the village school. She was a
native of llarrc, Massachusetts, but the
family had removed to Brandon, Ver
mont, where her father was a teacher.
She had been thoroughly taught by her
father in all the elements of a solid
education, and her fine mind was
further disciplined by teaching, in which
profession the teacher often learns more
than the scholar. It is not in my recol
lection that my classmate told me that
he had (alien in loc with a pretty
teacher while he was at home. Hut he
did. and about the same time he saw
his way across the ocean to some dis-.
tant mission ficlil, ana to tnat worn ne
had given his heart and soul before this
vounL' ladv crossed his path. He was
lull of the spirit of the oung men who,
behind the haystack, praed American
missions into being, and gac them
selves personally to the work long be
fore the power came into Or. Porter's
study at Andocr. Those )oung men,
of whom the world was not worthy, car
ried the spirit with them to Andovcr
hill, and on it kindled a fire whose
warmth and light went out into all the
earth and their words unto the ends of
the world. If Lowell Smith had been
a few years earlier in college he would
have been one more of that holy band
who set their faces steadfastly to go
into all the world and preach the gospel
to every creature.
Miss Abigail Willis Tenney was very
young when this call came to her heart
and soul: not yet twenty years old j but
her mind was already largely cultivated,
and her desires strong for influence and
usefulness. She was quite In advance
of her years. It was not a long struggle
that she had to make. Rather the pro
posal rose before the soul as a vision of
heaven revealing to nertne crown 01 a
noble life, the prize of her high calling,
and she accepted it not with the
martyr spirit, but as the brightest gift
that would be among her jewels when
she became my roommate's bride. He
finished his college course in 1825 1 and
went to Auburn Theological Seminary
to pursue his studies. She went to
Ipswich, Massachusetts, where Miss
Lyon and Miss Grant had recently
founded a female seminary. Afterward
they founded the Mount Holyokc In
stitution. Miss Tenney was already
competent to be a teacher; she was
soon called on to assist in the school,
and then dUplaved the abilities and ac
complishments which by and by made
her such a power for good in the far-off
islands of the sea.
Thus three 1 ears passed away al ter they
had met and loved, and when they had
given those years to faithful study, pre
paring themselves for the work of their
IIVCS, fllCJf wcic lliamtu 111 uuuuv.1 .n
sailed on a whale-ship from New Lon
don, November 23, 1832. It is not
likely that a sorrier wedding journey
ever was than these young people had
in the 159 days during which they were
buffeted about the ocean around Cape
Horn. They finally made the Sandwich
IsU.ids, their destination. The mission
there was in ,', youth, but the way had
been prepared for the advent of
Christian missionaries by a series of
providential events unequalled in wonder
and power since the Acts of the Apos
tles wert written for our instruction, on
whoa time end:, of the world have
Mrs. Smith suffered long and much
with feeble health, and at the beginning
Tety Inadequate provision could be
made for her comfort She endured
hardship in a native straw hut, a model
of which was sent to inc. i'or a long
time it was one of the curiosities of
Bamum's Museum. 'Iht'ti Mr. Smttli
built small house of (-tones, mostly
with his on hands, and (he natives
crowned it with a thatched roof. When
at lencth. after remounu from one
station to another they settled in llono
lulu, and the work so grew and multi
olicd that thev resolved to build a
church of vast sic tb hold immense
assemblies,,. Mr. and Mrs. Smith under
took the task that seemed, to human
sight, impracticable, l'aitli in God
could lay the top-stone. Mrs. Smith
was an invalid in bed, with native
women about her whom she was teach
ing household arts. Now she taught
them to make hats, mats and bags, to
Mil to whalers, sugar planters and
natives., and thus material was bought
for the new c'iuich. On and on it w cot
Mr. Smith made moulds for the adobe
brick : each parishioner made as many
bricks as he could, and in two' sears rt
was cowpletc : 125 feet long and 60
fett wide, with seats for 2,500, and
'1,000 could net into it It was often
crowded with txmitcnt. believing hear
rs, and grtat multitudes were added to
the church ol such as shall be saved.
Masac vtart wo I asked the trustees
caW bit Aiwa Mater to confer upon him
the Degree of 'Doctorbf Divinity, and
tSw iiSi, "Why. what bath be done r"
if any other of your students has been
more blessed, give to him the honor,"
Thev gave my friend the degree, though
I did not think his divinity needed
doctoring. It was riVas it was.
In the lovely Xtiuanu Valley, out of
the summer licit of town, they built a
neat, attractive house, a sweet rctieat,
where Mrs. Smith's health was greatly
improved. To her there came parents
6f good families asking her to help their
children in acquiring an education. She
consented, and from little to great it
grew until her house became an Ipswich
or Ilolvokc on a milch smaller scale.
All nations frequenting the Islands
sought its privileges for their sons nnd
daughters. It was a power in the land.
Men of position nnd inllucnrc, now in
office, sat at her feet. She had eighty
pupils at one tune. U hat her husband
was as a pastor, she was as a teacher.
Then a government school was sct up
adjoining the present Roval premises,
and Mrs. Smith was invited to take the
charge of it, but she declined, and pur
sued her work, her life work, faithful to
the end. A leader in every society and
enterprise for the improvement of the
people, she lived for the dear islanders
and literally died for tlicni.
In the last lifty jcars we, in my
family, have kept up a correspondence
with missionary men and women, whose
letters have been a blessing and joy to
us and ours. Levi 1'arsons was of the
first mission to the Holy Land, and wc
read a chapter in the Iliblc daily with
him, while he was afar ofTin the Kast
One letter of his did not reach us till he
had been dead a car. I could write
a long list of missionaries whose fares
are familiar at our fireside, and their
names arc household words. Those
larce shells are tokens of love from Mr.
and Mrs. Smith at the Sandwich Is
lands. That model of the mill at which
two women were grinding is from Mrs.
Graves in Cev Ion. And so on.
Hut of all these noble sons and
daughters of the Lord, there was never
one whose letters were so intellectual,
spiritual, exalted, so lull ol common
sense, practical religion and sclf-dcnving
consecration to the work she nau gone
to do. Her tastes were so refined that
there must have been much in her life
among the lowly that her nature would
have had otherwise, but the grace that
adorned her soul made the work
heavenly, and she moved in the midst
as an angel would cheerfully leave heaven
to do God's will in the slums of a city
and among the lowest of the childien
of men. Her service ennobled the
work. It was great and good because
her hands and spirit made it so. She
touched nothing she did not adorn.
And now she "has drawn the drapery of
her coach around her and sleeps peace
fully in the lar-off coral isles. Hve of
her children lie by her side. A son and
a daughter survive.
And her husband, my brother, my
college chum I In thy solitude and sor
row, dear old man, i nan nice across
the mountains and sea with words of
comfort and cheer. Thy wife shall live
again 1 She livcth now, and walks in
white raiment among the saved. Hie
abundance of the isles have been given
unto her and to thee, and thou shalt
lay trophies of immortal souls at the
feet of Him who redeemed them for
His cveilasting praise. It s-cms a long
time since vou and I parted and went
our several ways to do for God and our
fellow-men: often as the half-century
has worn away we have given the hail
ing sign half round the world, and now
once more I cry to the winds and waves,
and ask them to bear my heart's tender
sighs to your lonely home : a home no
more. Hut be not afraid. The morning

adorned for her husband, waits at the

Captain John Kricsson is now eighty
j ears old, And is hard at work ori an
important invention, occupying a dingy
chamber in New York. Captain F.rics
son gave the marine screw to com
merce and through it revolutionized the
carrying trade of the world. He
worked a long time on his hot air en
gine, by which he hoped to create an
other important revolution. He put
one into the ship Ericsson, but it was
not a success. The machinery was re
moved and the craft coin crtcd into a
sailing vessel, which has frequently
been in these waters. The hot air en
gine is slowly working its way, but it
does not promise to supplant other
motors. At a later date Ericsson in
vented the Monitor. That invention
has revolutionised the armed navies of
the world. The torpedo, in some
shape, had been known for a century.
It was long ago applied to small rraft,
or sunk 111 channel ways for the pur
pose of blowing up ships. Hut the
most formidable torpedo boat ever con
structed, and on essentially a new plan,
was that produced by Ericsson.
And now, it is said, the old man has
just completed a steam engine to be
driven by solar heat. It is a small
motor designed for pumping water on
the plains. During the last decade
much attention has been given by
scientific men to the practicability of
collecting solar ra)s to be used as a
motor. Steam engines have been
driven in that way. Ericsson proposed
to consttuct a cheap motor which could
be used when a small power was
wanted; and this was nowhere more
needed than on the hot, dry plains be
tween the Missouri River and the
Pacific Coast, and just where little or
no fuel could be procured. The sun
would be an endless source of heat
There are hundred of miles on these
deserts where there is neither wood nor
coal. Water is found at the depth of
from one hundred to three hundred
feet. Perhaps the latest invention of
Ericsson will turn out to be one of the
most important he has ever made.
Perhaps the sun which scorches and
burns in the desert, creatine a terrible
aridity, can be employed through this
invention to make the desert blossom
as the rose. The first successful
demonstration of the sun-motor applied
to raising water on the deserts, will go
a long way to convince many skeptics
ol the practicability of surh an in
The power of Shakespeare over the
public is shown by the extent to which
his phrases, and even his slan, has be;
come incorporated into our language
In this point, indeed, he tsr unequalcd.
Among these are "bag and baggage,"
"dead as a door nail," "proud of one's
humility," "tell the truth and shame the
devil," "hit or miss," "love is blind,"
"selling for a song," "wide world," "cut
copies," "fast and loose," ''unconsidered
triHe's," "westward ho," "familiarity
breeds contempt, "patching up ex
cuses, " misery makes strange bedfel
lows," "to boot" (in a" trade), "short
and long of it," "comb your head with
a three-legged stool," "dancing atten
dance," "getting even" (revenge),
"birds of a feather," "that's flat," "tag
rag, "tireek to me" (unintelligible),
"send one packing, "as the day is
long," " packing a jury," "mother wit,"
"kill with kindness," "mum" (for
silence), "ill-wind that blows no good,"
"wild goose chase," "scarecrow,"
"luggage," "row of pins" (as a mark of
value), "viva voce, "give and take,
"sold" (in the way of joke), "give the
devil his due," "your cake is dough."
These expressions have come under
my own notice, and of course there
mus be many others of equal familiarity.
The girl who playfully calls some youth
"a milksop" is also unconciously (iuot-
in9 Shakespeare, and even " logger
head" is of the -same origin. " Ex
tempore" is first found in Shakespeare,
and so are " Almanacs." The " elm
and vine " (as a figure) may also be
mentioned. Shakespeare is the first
author that speaks of "the man in the
moon," or mentions the potato, or uses
the term "eyesore," for annoyance.
Another often quoted utterance may be
here mentioned, simply because it is
generally misunderstood : " One touch
of nature makes the whole world kin,"
which is supposed to express the power
of sympathy, whereas it solely reterred
to the widespread operation of selfish
ness. Htrmit, in 2'roy Times.
