Practice What You Preach.
Te'l n-e not of garbled sermon
i;U cniice of thought and style,
Heard from out ytaur modern pulpita,
Man from error to bcujlc.
Elnqnence tnny charm the fancy,
Summon au admiring crowd,
Who surround the gifted preacher,
W it la their praif-ea long ind loud;
Cut if God' appointed aervuntn,
Would their he arer'a contcirnue reach,
lauding them to p utha of window,
1'bcy tBU8t practice what they preach.
Ptarontg, if yor tender offspring
Yon lead in ways of truth,
Shielding them from the lemptttliona
That surround the paths of youth;
Couilt as vaio your liina-woru maxims,
And, td ntiike your teachiae; se,
Guide them not alone by precrpi,
But txavvplr, just and pure.
For. to nhelter from the tempests
Sin's dark clouds wood cast round each
Tender flower of your protection,
, You must practice vhmt yo prrtidk.
Teachers, if throughout yoHr tddtic,
Ever fuilhful you would bo,
Not by wards, but by actions,
Teach iu all sincerity.
Youthful eyes are on you gtzing,
Vouthtul hearts your thoughts receive ;
Eagerly they catch your accents,
Eagerly your words believe,
Then beware ! lest by your actions,
Untrue jtrinciflu yau teach,
And forget not thitt you must erer
Strive to predict trhat you preach.
Ye who would redeem a brother
Through a Savior's pnrd'ning love,
Know that by your bright example.
Yon must lure to joys above.
'Better there the world, and wiser,
Full of goodnes and of truth,
If throughout eauh generation.
Hoary age and buoyant youth,
All who preach the glorious gospel,
All who govern, all who teach,
Would but learn this useful lesson,
AUoayt practice what you preach.

From the Springfield Republican.
From the Springfield Republican. Railway Traveling.
The great secret of traveling comforta
bly in a railway car is snppoHed to reiide In
kaowinjr how to monopolize tho largest
amount of cpaee. Old hands In this bnsi
ncRS have learned the trade, and it is nufll
ciently amusing to seo them manage it.
We hnv tried some experiments In that
line, oum'Ive. We recent If rode from
Springfield to New York with two scats all
the Bay. The way we did it was, at every
stopping place, to stick a formidable tim
hiclla np in the unoccupied scat, ond then
keep our eyes out of the window until eve
ry body whs seated, and the cars were off.
Half a dozen fellows watched tho trick.
nnd rather enjoyed it. But this was only
for on experiment, and really pave no one
any trouble, to far as we know, ilmnvh twenty-five
persons bowed to the umbrella, and
passed along. A cood wo v. and one uruc-
ticed largely at the west, is to lie down, and
go very soondly to sleep. Another Is to
pretend thai the seat bclogg to a friend,
who will soon be iu from auother car, though
vocalized fabchood is not considered Tery
creditable. Bandboxes and bundlm, no
plentiful that nobody sees how they cau be
possibly disposed of, will drive all but hnrd
customers away. If these will not do, au
infallible resort is a huge puddle of tobacco
juice before the vacant scat. Ladies may
usually iteenre immunity from Intrusion by
sitting lu the middle of a scat, and spread
ing their skirts over the whole.
Bat there are travelers who go a good
deal fnrthor than this. Of all places in
this world, we know of none which will
bring out the innate hoggishneas of a man's
disposition so thoroughly as a railway car.
The men who resort to the little tricks for
retaining room are mostly good natured
men, w ho yield their wishes with a pleasant
grace w hen the vacant room .to really want
ed, but there are some who regard a man
who wants the seat to which they have no ,
shadow of right -with a crabbed souruess,
enough to make one hate them. We do
light particularly in seeing such men insult
ed and put down, as we do a selfish monop
olist anywhere. .
But, after all, this
started to write ubout
of pleasure In railway
American bids fair to
was not what wc
There is a secret
trarcliutj, nnd tbe
copy the En-ilish-
man so far as to lose sight of it. The pas
sengers of a railway car may enjoy them
selves, as any chance collection ot individ
uals may, by yielding to their social in
stincts, and ceasing for tbe time to regard
each other as strangers". Forty men and
women get into a car and ride a hundred
miles, longing to speak to somebody, afraid
to Kpeak to anybody, and tired by the te
dious passoge, a passage they dreaded be
fore starting, and remember with pain and
disgust when completed If the whoh
freight of tie car had obeyed its wishes, ii
uAd have been happy. .Pleasant conver
sation would have spi un; up, the company
would Ixare become a vivacious social s
sembly, tho passago would have been short
encd one half, aud friendships might havi
been formed of a lasting and valuable char
actcr. But there was a conventional wab
between each passenger and his neighbor,
and over this no word was passed.
Koav, is tlwre iot a better vay than thin T
The common sense of every man and wo
man will allow that there 13. "We all be
lieve there .is, and it needs only a universal
obeisance to the fact, and a 'practical adop
tion of it to demonstrate its superiority.
Of course, no acquaiutuuee, formed under
such circumstances, has, in itself, any claim
to contiuuaxktie. A company of passengers
meet and Agree, for the time, to talk with
one another, for the purpose of whiling
away the hours, and being amusing aud
useful to each other. They part, and uu
less there may have been some rpecial rea
son for tout Liming the acquaintance, that
is the last of it. IVe cau all agree that
this is a much more healthful and pleasant
excrefce than reading through a passage. "
If lapse or license io etiquette should
ever allow the adoption of a plan like this,
it would be found to da away wit id all this
fighting over seats, this ei-lliish greed for
space, this prevalent hoggisbness, of which
we have spoken. Wbtftwer thcr jsiotinl
fellowship, there is social consideration and
politeness. In a social assembly, every man
feels himself to be upon bib good behavior.
As U is, we, as a nutiou of travelers, are iu
danger of becoming as uotqriotls for our
taciturnity, and crabbedness, aud monopo
lizing spirit, as tbe Englitb are, and. ibis
we Ahojild regard as a great eaiatnity. The
Englishman, notoriously hospitable and
pleasant In his own mansion, is as notorious
ly a selfish, sour. fuuIt-lIndLnfr. privilesre-
goisptug fellow on his trafbjs. tlib efy

The Origin of the Sewing Machine.
The student of mechanics, when, with all
his natural taste and his acquired love whet
ted to the kceuest point, uu dwells upon the
history of great inventions, luvoluntarily
tuuses and permits his mma to picture a
ittle boy sitting in the comer of an old
fashioned hearth, studiously gazing upon
the lifting cover of that craue suspended
kettle, as he reads how it was-that Fultoo
was first led to think of propelling a vessel
against wiud end tide by tbe expau.ive force
f steam. Aud as naturally he pauses
longer, .until auother picture, embodyiug all
the wealth of that idea, floats In perspec
tivo before him. lie sees a myriad of black
hulks, with foreheads of tknio by night
and canopies of smoke by day, the Jeupjng
coursers of the deep, animuted ly and
pulsalinir with that automatic power. Tbe
rivers of the world whiten Into foam at its
beat and where heaven gave do stream to
turn a wheel, the heaven-born conception
has atoned the want, and Ton may hear
tbe sons; of hammer aud of anvil, welding
beneath its touch tbe machinery that does
the world's work this day.
And tha hour ts fabt drawing near, when
that student will uUo pause as be eomes to
iha name of Allen WiUon. It is now
mattef of recorded decision la tbe patent
office at Wftshiugtoxf that be was tin first
man known to science, as having taught
the world how by machinery to sew a curved
a well as well as straight seam at the will
of tho operator. II did it in western Mas
saennwus, in tne year isu. Ana any
one wno win iuku me iroume to examine
a machine of Wheeler A Wilnon's," may
comprehend In a moment the simple and
beautiful Idea he developed, and made the
sewing machine thereby, a practical neces
sity iu every family. For this, without in
justice to any, it is fair to say, that when
all other mimes have been lost in the mer
cenary crowd, side by side with that of
Howe, the father of all, shall stnnd the
namos of "Wheeler & Wilson," the one
the lirst to invent for, and tho other,
the first to give to; the world, a machine
made for tho home.
Already, that little contrivance is work
ing out its benilicent uc, wherever beneath
the fretted sky civilized man hath a home.
Five years more, and it will be so common,
that a child's painted toy will be more no
ticed by tho thoughtless. But the archives
of the patent omce will keep the model,
and wise and learned men will pass the
names to posterity, and noiversal mankind
will garner tbe wealth of toil spared and
And the pausing student will also note
it in his memory, what it was that fired the
genius of Wilson. Within sight of his
shop, three orphaned sisters sat and sewed
for bread. The younger stitched tho elder's
widing sheet, and the other stitched her
own. One by one, pale consumption claim
ed them, and they dropped as the red leaves
of autumn drop. As the mechanic helped
