Abstract of Time Table Adopted May 26th, 1872. MADGE MILLER.
Madge Miller, on a summer dny,
Walked, as nsiinl, her pleiisHiit way.
Her ilrea was tidy, her spron wlilie
Her lute WU8 aw eet aa Hie morning light.
She w4 a country vtllnjre mnltl
Learning; n country milliner' limit'.
Her hand wcreaofi nnil liei dress wus clean,
And liillo alio knew wlint cure iiiilit n.tnn.
flic aiitd: "I'll work at my prelly Irnde,
And live a hnppy mi l Ine old nnild.
liovern. may conic ntid lovers niny jjn,
I'll Iihvv uoue of lliein, no, no, not"
Hut a sullor ciiiiio with a tall Bilk lint ;
He told her a glory worth Iwn ol Unit
Tlie Biime old slory by lovers lold,
bincu first tlie eiirlli out ol cIihiii rolled
(Let us kindly hope, who are old and wise,
lie did not kiwa he wus Idling; lies )
"Murry mu, darling, and you aliall he
Tlie lmiii ut w oman on fund or tea I
No longer then will you Inivi; lo no
To your tluily lubor llnuuli ueut or snow.
Il slmll be my pleasure, my biw, my life,
To imikv you u blest unci hnppy wile.
Mnriy me, nndyou never slmll know
A sorrow or hurdsliip, a care or wool
Murry me, darling I you slmll he
The happiest woman on laud or sea I"
She lienrd the story of promised bliss
the wuiled, wnveietl mid answered "Yi 8 1"
Bright und Mir was lite honey-moon,
And clou tied by worldly cure, loo soon.
For housework led her its weary round
Hi r feet wi leletliered her hands Were bound.
And children came with llieir small demands,
Fettering closer her burdened bands.
In In r. husband's house she, mine to be
A servant in nil hut snluiy.
All Iter days, whether foul or fair,
Were eudl.as circles ol work mid care.
And hulf her nights its up and down
She walked llie Uuor in her tlreasiu-gown,
Hushing; tin iiiliiti; iiifanl's sereums,
Lesl it 8I1011IJ break lis lather's dreams;
And wushllie dishes and rub the knives,
The lot'iy mission ol duteous wives
Or coaxed and doctored it sobbing child,
Uy the pangs of eainclie driven w i'.d
Were sensnns of wakeful, nervous dread
So il ul last o'er her aching head
The angel of slumber clinnced lo sloop
lie brought l.er visions ol mumps or croup;
Ami sli" rose unri sled, and went once more
Through thu dull routine ol the day beloie.
Week by week did she drudge and toil,
Ami note how the bloom line) 1 ft her face,
And stew ami piekle, und roust and boil,
And scrub and iron, and sweep and cook
Her only reading a recipe-hook.
And bnthe llie cbildrrii.nnd brush llieir locks,
Button llieir aprons and pin their hocks,
Aud pnicli old garments, and darn und tuend
Oil wctity worry Hint lias no end!
She lost her airy and sportive ways,
Tne prelly charms ol her giilis'u days
For how enn a play I ul laiicy rove
When one is lied up lo a cooking-stove T
Her luce w ns old ere she reached lit r
Fad' d and care-worn before its lime.
Sometimes would In r well kept husband look
Li Irom luu page ol lib paper or book.
And a pullid thinness won its place-
How gray had mixed with her locks of brown
And her loreheud gaiutd a growing frown,
And say ''She is ugly I deelare
I wonil, r il I ever lliought In r fair I"
Season by Benson, year by year.
Did she lollow llie round "of wonmiis
Not vexed ln r husband's days or nights
By any nienlion of w oman's rights.
Till she died nt last loo seven ly tried
Her I tie's one belliA deed she died.
Proud and liapnv. und Quite conlent
With llie blnviah way her days were ppenlt
Feeling of course, Unit her life was lost
Nolily in saving a sei vnnl's cost 1
Once, lie fancied her dim ghost spoke
Out ol ils cloud ol kileheit smoke
"I might huve followed my tasteful Irnde,

mony seven time, and an invitation
from cousin Susan to run fiver and turn
her black silk, lk-sidc that I had my
own sorrow. My Tabhv had lieen ob
liviated for two days. The evening Ire
fore she disappeared she hod refused the
fifth saucer of milk for her supper, and
uppeared pensive. I feared she had com
mitted suicide or wandered out into thin
unfeeling world, because neighbor
lSrown's Tom had jilted her for Mrs.
Rev's green-eyed, blutk, ugly feline she
had the audacity to call "lieauty."
Just as I was bitterly regretting tSat I
had not taught Janby troin my own ex
perience, something ot the hckleness ot
the world in general and mankind in
particular, who should come blundering
in but John. Of course he upset a chair,
overturned my work-basket, knocked a
book off the table, steiipeil on my weath
er-oraelc toe and tumlHed into my best
.chair with a crash. Then he reached
over to the stand beside me, and taking
a pin be began to draw figures upon my
"Good morning, John," I remarked

llaving survived in the companionship
of my own cognomen until 1 had arrived
at a respectable age, I was accustomed
to being a convenience. I think our
family had a habit of considering it a
charity to make me useful. Therefore,
I did not say nay to John.
In due time I went over to the cot
tage. It was cosy and pleasant, save
the varuisliy odor which always clings
to new furniture. How the relatives did
run over that place! What comments
they made. They ended the seige at
last by declaring now that John was to
be married, he would be entirely lost
unless his wife had sufficient decision to
insist upon the turning of a new leaf in
his conduct. And as he had been so
neglectful ns to consult none of them,
probably she was an unsuitable person.
They came. John introduced me to
"My wife, Mat tie," with a great flourish.
My heart misgave me. "My wife,
Mat tie," was a tiny, pink and white doll,
topped with a profusion of light curls
and frizzles. When I looked into her
large, laughing blue eyes I almost cried
as 1 thought now - eatl thev would grow
under John's treatment. I promised to
remain with them until Mattie should
become acquainted with, the place. She
had left aa immense number of sisters
and brothers John was "sure 16 Inarry
into a lame family and would be lonelv
For a whole fortnight everything was
lovely; John was devoted, punctual and
altogether a model husband; Mattie was
a perfect pattern of a housewife, loving
and happy. It was "John, dear," and
"Mattie, darling," ' until 1 was fairly
wild for a good, healthy snarl from my
Tabby, who had returned to her home.
But when John was u month married
he was more lawless than ever. He for
got to order the repast for dinner until
he came but four days out of five he
forgot to come to dinner. He threw off
nil household care. He was even grow
ing careless in his dress, and threw ev
erything into confusion whenever he en
tered the cottage, llie pink in Mattle's
cheek began to change to white, and the
laugh in her eye to a sob. Evidently
she had been a favorite at home, and
was sorely grieved. I longed to com
fort her, but did no.t know what to say.
She was sitting before he grate one
evening, waiting tea as usual. "I pre
sume he will not come," she said with
sigh; "I do wish John wouldn't do so!"
"'But he Swill,'.', I replied, "it's bis
"It is?" with a little start
"Yes, indeed. He was very foolish
marry, considering his negligence. All
tho relations pity j oti,: ,!, went on, in
effort to condole with'ber, "and" ff
grows unbearable, as they predict it will,
some of them will blame you."
Perhaps the lire in the grate flamed
up her cbeek8. . At all events, thev were
crimson. She thrust both hands into
mv curls and then said sweetly: "We
may as well have tea, cousin Sabrina.'
John came in at half-past eleven, over
flowing with glib excuses. Mattie stood
on her tin-toes and kissed him with
more of tlie old look in her face than
had seen for days. I could have boxed
her delicate ears. Alter my Hint,

e were to lunch at dinner. By some
over-sight John came home. lie was
evidently hungry, and everybody knows
what an abominable creature a hungry
man is. I have long looked for popular
indignation to do away with "emotion

quite satisfied, "influenced by hunger"
will be the next plea.
".Mattie," said he, in a towering rage,
"when I married you, you were neat

me. Should a husband come home to

But Mattie sat very stiH and placid un

"My dear John, you astonish me! I

my father said I must pull the same way
my husband did. 1 tried to be a dutiful

wife. I shall take the path you mark

She smiled as she ceased, but John
saw how firm she was in the set, red lips.
lie looked over to me just us 1 nodded
approvingly. "She's right," he gasped,
1 will run to the market lor u mutton

and John was a reformed man.
The relatives all wonder what course
John's wife took with him. Far be it
from me to lisp what 1 know. For of
all abominable things, the most abomin
able, is to take advantage of being an
inmate of one's family, to blazon about
its secret ways. But 1 never see a patient
wife enduring a husbaud's neglect and
forever righting what he has wronged,
but I feel like sitting down and telling
them about John s wife.
A MOTHER'S STRATEGEM.
In June, 16C9, the ship Wanderer left
the settlements of Monrovia, on the
coast of Liberia in Africa, having on
board among her passengers, bound
home to England, Mr. Benton, a youii
missionary, and his beautiful wife Xleleu,
with their child a little girl three years
For three weeks the vessel encounter
ed a succession ot head winds and vio
lent squalls, which, driviug her towards
land, at leugth compelled her captaiu to

Morocco. It was a beautiful spot, but
a few hundred vards irom one ot the
half detached peaks of the Atlas moun
Gazing inland, the passengers beheld
a wealth of verdure, with tall trees and
limbing plants and flowers of variegated
hue many of the latter ascending to
the tops ot the rocky hills, aud hanging
down in long, graceful festoons over
the valleys between.
In the attcrnoon,tne gale having aoat

soundings iu the buy.
"1 would so like to take little Clara
ashore." said Helen to her husband
"You know she has been teasing us all
day for some ot those pretty flowers.
. "V ery well; it the captain will take
tho trouble to put us ashore, we will go,"
The captain having readily given his
consent, the two passengers were soon
lauded on tne beach.
"Don't go far away, sir," said the
skipper, as he shoved off again.

To gain the ship's side, to call for and
obtain loaded muskets, was, with the
captain, the work of a few minute.

report was heard as one of tho weapons
was discharged, and w ith a terrible roar,
the animal tnrned, slightly wounded,
looking toward the seamen.
Only for a moment, however; the
next away he went in pursuit of Mrs.
Benton, who, with the speed of despera
tion, her child claaped tightly iu her
amiR, was fleeing up the height.
On she ran, the"?ion, though wounded,
gaining fast. Now and then she would
turn to behold the hideous beast within
a few yards of her, the eyes now resem
bling great white circles, with lambent
points of flame in the center, while the
closed teeth and wrinkled nostrils be
tokened that it scented the blood from
the scratches the little one had received,
and which had roused to the utmost the
hungry desires of the savage In-nst.
Gasping, panting, wild with terror
and anxiety, the fugitive hurried along,
scarcely hearing, far below, the shouts
of the pursuing seamen. They could
not help her they were not near
enough. The victims would be torn to
pieces and devoured long ere they could
attack the lion.
This Mrs. Benton comprehended. She
saw no wav of escape her only help
was in 1 rovidence.
Watching the figures, as ho sped on
at the head of the seamen, the young
missionary a' most screamed in agony, ex
pecting every moment to see his wife
and child fall a prey to the monster.
The lion now being in a line with the
fugitive, the muskets were useless in the
hands of the sailors, who could not fire
at the animal for fear of hitting Mrs.
The strength of the latter, in ypite of
all her efforts, was evidently giving way.
Her limbs trembled under her she
swayed from side to side her gasping
sobs could be heard even by the sailors.
The savage pursuer now gained with
"Great Heaven: screamed Mr. Uen-
tou, striking his forehead with his hand,
'can nothing be done'.
Already the lion was within three
ards of the fugitive.
"Fire!" shouted the missionary. "I
give you leave. There is no other alter
native." True!'" answered the captain, as
pale as death, "it most be the lion or the

the lion not more than two yards behiud
his intended victims.
Mrs. Benton saw ahead a clump of
slender trees, evidently growing from a
cleft in the rock. A wild hope animat
ed her, and gave renewed strength to
her faltering limbs, liy getting behind
the trees, and dodging, might she not
contrive to elude the animal until the
party from below should arrive?
1 he cluster ot trees was now tne cov
eted goal, and she strained even nerve
to reach it. But when she was w ithin
ten feet of it. she met with a fearful
disappointment a deep, yawning chasm
right in her path 'between her and
the trees, and which had intnerio Deen
bidden from her sight by high bushes
fringing the edge.
The chasm was too wide too leap
over. She turned, and stood at bay
her back to the abvss. her face toward
the lion. There seemed no hope now,
Death was before and behind her, hem
niing her in on both sides.
The lion paused as she turned to
wards him. He uttered a growl of tri
umph and crouched for the fatal spring.
The lady strained ber child closer
her breast. To descend the dark depths
of the chasm was preferable to being
torn by that savage monster. There was
no time to loose. In another moment
the tawny body must come swooping
down upon her.
But now a quick, wild thought

A Visit to Monticello.
A correspondent of the Chicago Trib
It has now been two years since I
Monticello, and, having some
who were anxious to make
an excursion, we were driven to the
of tho mountain, over roads which
any other State of the Union, would
deemed impassable, Part of the
was actually terraced over rocks which
tho wheels ascended sometimes a
high vertically. Among the pleasant
creeks almost deep enough to lift thecar
riage up and float it. Jefferson's tomb
was in the same disfigured condition
which I have fully described in previ
ous letters and the old mansion at
top of the hill was in even worse repair,

stuck in tho windows, farm gear over
floor, and the smell of must, ana moia,

paintings, vnes, tirna, books, visitors,
and household animals made hospitality
biironinl, and eminence in retirement
still splendid. The little stairways was '
in lb v, all, and hardly bigger than a ,
chimney; tlie great old clock, stopped
over the portal, with weights of cannon
balls covered with rust; the secret pas-
sage-way, filled op with earth; and the
stable dropping to pieces; tho empty
brackets around the rooms hinting of ,
formoroci-upnnta; the bust of Jefferson
himself, in plaster, discolored and hide
eons; the frowsy mulatto servant going
through the rooms, reminding us that
"a quarter"' was the charge to see the
place; and the great wheeling chair in'
which the venerable President used to
be pulled along, now occupied by a oat '
with a litter; and the hall-way where be
appeared on the balcony and talked to
the atiidents, full of peeled wainscotting
and strips of moldered wall-paper.
What ruin! What a reminiscence! If -the
students at the Uneversity had the,
spirit of Northern boys, they would
march some Saturday, with picks and
spades, up the side of Monticello, and do
a little wholesome gardening around
Jefferson's grave, naif a day's organ-,
ized labor would take from that tomb
part of its desolation, and make it ap
pear that, if revernoe for Jefferson wero
dead, self-respect among the living
might still have some vestige left.

What the Kansas people therefore
need is f grit. This" everlasting fsearch
after an earthly paradise is about as fu
tile an undertaking as the discovery of
angels among the feminine portion of
the community. This has long since
been pronounced an impossibility.
Many people who are well-to-do, have
comfortable homes, good orchards and
conveniences for living which time and
labor have been expended in procuring,
are ready to "pull up" and join the pro
cession of emigrant wagons freighted
with human beings of all ages, bound
for some new region where they can
"grow up with the country."
Some of these will better their con
dition, perhaps others will regret the
day when they resolved to change their
location; and when in advanced years
too late for retraction of misguided
steps will feel the full force of the expres
sion that "it is always better to let well
enough alone." There is in the human
breast a perpetual longing for "change"
and when adversity overtakes us, and
skies hang heavily clouded over ns,
the impulse of our natue is, to travel;'
to seek a new home; to engage in some
other occupation. Ordinarily, however
