One class of persons will need an p
pecial amount of grace this summer. AVe
mean those women who, having worked
hard in their homes all winter are visited
by their city friends all summer. Per
haps they have married the sons, who,
by fate of fortune, have kept the old
homes. All the brothers and sisters, with
their troop3 of children, must come back
to tho shade trees and meadows for a quiet
rest. Perhaps they have no special love
for tho woman who presides over tho old
Inno house, but it is such a convenient
thing to have a placo to visit where there
are no board bills to pay. Ten to one, the
wife in tho country is more worn than her
city relatives, and is in no wise able to
bear tho extra care, or manage the ad
ditional cooking. For force of circum
stances she has been dressmaker, milliner
and servant, maybe, in her large family
the whole year through. She has turned
dresses wrong side out and upside down.
She has made every dime go its farthest.
And now the visitors have come to use
up all her self sacrifice has saved. It
might have been pleasant to have received
them for three days, but when they re
main three months the case is different.
We onco heard a gentleman remark that
he "could say all the new things he had
to say to visitors in one day," and, as a
rule, we quite agree with him. The cheap
est way to visit is to go to a hotel or board
ing house, and pay an equivalent tor what
one receives. Of course, one has congen
ial friends whom it is a pleasuro to seek
much and often; but too many so-called
friends and persons who are serving their
own convenience persons who never of
fer to help in kitchen or parlor, and seerr
oblivious to the fact that anything is be
ing done for them. Don't make youi
summer trip at the expense of anybody'
comfort. Let your religion, it you prole.-.- !

The contrast between tho British and
American systems of railway. is very re
markable. The mileage of tho former is
only 17,096 miles, the latter 86,497. The
cost of the former is $3,5S5,000,000,
double our funded national debt and close
upon the total of the English debt. The
cost of our system in operation to Decem
ber, 31, 1879, is placed by Mr. Poor at
$4,4 16,000,000 on84,232 mi es, or $4,919,
000,000 on the whole system of 86,497
miles. The difference in tho average cost
per mile is very great in Great Britain
$202,000 per mile; in the United States,
$130,00 average per mile. The gross earn
ings, on the other hand, are directly re
versed. The British linep, on 17,696 mile3,
last year took in $308,000,000. The lines
of the United States, o:i 84,232 miles in
full operation last year, took in $529,000,
000. Tho proportion of passengers to
freight on tho former " greater than in
this country, 'though only 42 per cent of
tho whole earnings. The operating ex
penses in Great Britain averago 52 per
cent; in tho United foftfees, 56.40 per cent.
