There cannot now be many people In New
York who do not understand the object of The
Evemn-o World's) Christmas Tree Fund. Ihe
announcement of this nincl charity was mado
two days ago, and already there are numcious
persons enlisted in the work.
The appeal goes home to everybody. More

those who aro deterrod by fato or circumstances

feasting of tho great holiday. And how many
are thero now in afilucnco who can recall, with
keen memory of the pangs endured, ono or more
cheerless, perhaps breadlesi, Christmascs In
their own careeist
There is nothing whloh robs enjoyment of its
crowning zest so quickly as knowledge of the
existence within arm's reach of the pleasure-spot
ot hollow-Jawed and vacant-eyed misery. A
Christmas that finds cold and hunger on thou
sands and thousands of hearths in every great
city should not bo bright or cheerful for every
body. Thore may be somo so swathed in riches and
so indifferent to all human sufiering that they
know nothing about the lower strata of life in
this world. Let these people accompany Tn
Evenimo World writer into somo dim tenement
district, and go with him through one of tho
low doors into a home wretched withpoerts.
Eery day in tho year is tho aamo as every other
for the poor, so there is no necessity to iinagmo

brood ate perishing from hunger. Famine and
the fover it begets aro setting their seal upon
all of them.

To I or Editor :
It amusct me to read the endearing recipe for
keeping husbands homo nights. It is like giving
aprescuptlon for a patient; what it good for
one is death for another.
When a man attends to his business all dav
and provides tor and is kind to his family, he
had ought to bo allowed a few evenings in the
week for his society, militia or whatever he
may belong to, provided you know that he is in
pood company aud enjoying hlraselr. Then, if
he is like mv good man, he will feel satisfied to
spend tho rest of his time with hisfamilv.

I have concluded, after muoh experience and
reflection, that If husbands desire to go out
nothing under heaven will keep tnem home.
Find and Obviate the Cause.
To Hr Editor t
F,vcry husband who goes out in the evening
goes out for a certain purpose or reason; and
tho best iccipe to keep him at home is for each
wife in such a caso to try and find out tho indi
udual cause, purpose or reaton why her hus
band goes out. When she has found this out it
will bo an easy matter to keep him at homo by
suppljing or nvolding whatever the cause may
Love, clieorfulness, cleanliness, faithfulness,
Ac should oxist in cverv home.
It there is something that tho wifo is unable
to supply that bor husband goes out foi she
should ask him in a nice way to give this up for
hor sake; if ho cares for her as he should ho will
do so, and will stay at hone.

To keep husband home I ti ied,
And lor loneliness I ciied.
But some goo I thoughts came in my mind
And a good soheme 1 tried to find.

Over dailv troubles do not brood.

Warm bis sllppeis for his feet.

I ticat my husband as I desire to bo treated by

Tothr 1 dttor
tj recipe was given me by my husband soon
after mamage. I saw manifest indiflerenco or
coldness between husbands and wives in many
households. I feaied to have our own lives
becomo as others appeared. In speaking of it
with him I asked :
"Why, may we not alwajs be as happy with
each other as now 7"
He answcied : " I think wo mav if each be as
kind and polite to the other after at before
Wise words they seemed then. Being put in
practlco by both thev proved very profitable.
asoiitH was a bappvlume until death elaimed
the husband ten jcara later.
I wuuld recommend all husbands and wives to
begin with hearts filled with love, confidence
and respect for eaoh other; then to tiy my
recipp faithfully for ono year, carefully avoid
ing the first unkind word, as a word said can
never be recalled. The ev cnlngs will tako care
of themselv es, as did those of mow.

stated that the late wife ot General Sherman did not
receive the gold rose nor any gift or favor whatever

The impression it quit general

But the notion is erroneous,

Now we have tome strange conception!

And the strangeness 1. extending
Kven to Ideas and talk ;
Thins have turned so topsy-turvy.

That old timers lose their bearings
And can hardly navigate.
