She Made Home Happy."
In an old churchyard stood a stone,
W father-marked and stained
The hand of Time had crurnbled'it
And only part remained. '
Upon one side I could just trace
"In memory of our mother !" '
An epitaph which spoke of "home"
A as chiseled on the other.
I'd gazed on monuments of fame,
High towering to the skies;
I'd seen the sculptured marble tower
W here a great hero lies ;
But by this epitaph I paused,
And read it o'er and o'er,
For I had never seen inscribed
Such words as these before.
"She always made home happy !"
What noble record this !
A legacy of memory sweet
To those she loved and left.
And what a testimony given
By those who knew her best,
Engraven on this plain rude stone
'ihat marked their mother's rest.
A noble life ! but written not
In any book of fame;
Among the list of noted ones
None ever saw her name ;
For oid v her own household knew
The victories she had won,
And none but they could testify
How well her work was done.

Good Advice to Dyspeptics.
If a man wishes to get rid of dyspepsia
he must give his stomach and brains less to
do. It will be of no service to him to follow
any particular regimen to live on chaff
bread, or any such stuff to weigh his food,
oyj us U1 oram is in a constant
state of excitement. Let that have proper
rest, and the stomach will perform its func
tions. But if he pass fourteen or fifteen
hours a day in his office or countincr-mnm
and take no exercise, his stomach wifl inevi
tably become paralyzed, and if he puts noth
ing into it but a cracker a day, it will not
digest it. In many cases it is the brain
that is the primary cause. Give that deli
cate organ some rest. Leave your business
behind you when you go to your home.
Do not sit down to your dinner with your
brows knit, and your mind absorded in "cast
ing up interest accounts. Never abridge
the usual hours of sleep. Take more or les
exercise in the open air every day. Allow
yourself some innocent, iwrp.it i.
some innocent recreation. F.nt
moderately, slowly, and of what you please
provided it be not the shovel "and tono-s.
ii any particular dish disagrees with you,
hum e er, never touch it, or look at it. Do
not imagine that you must live on rye bread
oi oat meal porridge; a reasonable quan-
"j "uuhwus loou is essential to the
mind as well as the body. Above all, ban
ish all thoughts of the subject. If you have
any treatise on dyspepsia, domestic medi
cine, etc., put them directly into the fire.
If you are constantly talking and thinking
about dyspepsia, you -will surely have iL
Endeavor to forget that you have a stomach.
Keep a clear conscience; live temperately,
regularly, cleanly ; be industrious, too, but
be temperate. Boston Journal of Chem

Increase of Population and -Wealth
ix the South. The new York Sun says:
It is an interesting fact that, notwithstand
ing the disordered condition of the South
ern States, population, industry and wealth
have been steadily on the increase there
since the close of the rebellion. In six years,
since the end of the war, the eleven "rebel
Slates have trained eirht hundred thousand I
in the number of their people ; they have
three thousand live hundred miles of rail
road more than they had then; they have
lour cultivated farms now where they had
three before the war; and their number of
manufacturing establishments is more than
doubled. The agricultural products of
these eleven States in 18G9 amounted to
over one thousand seven hundred and iifly
millions of dollars, of which less than one
n u n was in cotton

A Congressional Scene.
Mr. Heck's Answer to Ben Butler.
Jlr. Beck got leave to reply to Butler in
defence of the Senatdr of Kentucky, who
had been so foully denounced by hiin." That
Senator and that member had had a contro
versy in the Senate.
3lr. Butler (interrupting): Ohno; I
nad no controversy with him
ltie senator (Ipnnmiprwl thp
member, on the floor of the Senate, as a
u a scoundrel, and I would characterize
that flS O (tnnlrm-Avm. fT . 1 . t ri-.i
t - . -. - -
had a quarrel on the'lloor "of the Senate. It
ought to have ended there, and would have
ended but for the fact that the member
irom Massachusetts saw fit to come on the
floor of the House and use language grossly
offensive to the Senator from Kentucky,
and it was after that, that the Senator had
pronounced the speech which had been
quoted by the member from Massachusetts.
If he had a personal explanation to make,
he should have made it at once, but he had
waited till last i uesdav, the day that Con
gress was to adjourn,- and then asked - leave
to make it, Having sent printed slips of it
to Boston and to the New York Herald,
knowing that the Senator would have left
the city before he could have seen it in
print. Therefore I objected because it had
been held up so long, and not because I did
not want to give the gentleman a chance of
Air. Butler (interrupting): The reason
given by the gentleman was that he would
not let me speak so long as the indictment
against his State was continued.
3Ir. Beck: If I had had an opportunity
to reply to that indictment I would have
done it in a way that I hope would have
been worthy of the State. When the gen
tleman was trying to o-et leave to-dav. I
asked him whether he would assail the Sen
ator from Kentucky, and lie replied that he
would, not, and on that statement Democrat
after Democrat voted to give him the privi
lege. I did not believe what he said, and
therefore voted against it. Laughter.
YY lien the member arises and announces
that the Senator from Kentucky has been
guilty of falsehood, I deny it. I hurl it
back, and say that the character of that
Senator is as good as that of any man on
earth. He never did wilfully tell a lie, and
no man ever before accused him of it.
"When the member said that the Senator
was shielded by his age, and that he did
not seek the proper redress, I have only to
say that while my Senator is neither a bully
nor a blackguard, the member can get any
redress from him that he seeks outside of
j this hall or anywhere else. rLauirhter.1 I
do not believe that it lies in the mouth of
the member from MassMcbiisotts tn rnR-
about my Senator being shielded bv his age j
or not seeking proper redress. I have wit-!
nessed scenes with that member which sat-
istied me that he would not seek the redress !
to which he allmlos f f fiiiohtn.-1 TT, I

The experience of five years has taken
the starch out of all our farming notions;
and we have come to the conclusion that our
only hope lies in contracting the area of cul
tivation, cutting down the corn patch, and
filling the deficiency with oats, barley, and
the grasses, raising our own stock and sup
plies as much as possible, keeping out of
debt, paying as we go, and making the
greatest amount of cotton upon the smallest
area of land.
We have been running the machine all
wrong. Our aim has been to grow rich by
devoting all our energies and resorces to
the production of cotton. We have grown
daily, as a people, poorer, while our labors
have enriched the very people who have
riveted the chains upon us.
Uur ellorts should have been directed to
the improvements and comforts of life first,
and the production of cotton afterwards.
We have been infatuated with the idea that
the cotton crop would restore the equili
brium never was there a greater mistake.
We have been tickled witJi the Northern
palaver about restoration of the JSouth,
Southern prosperity, and all that, by the
cotton crop, and annually seduced into the
road to ruin. Are we going to try it again 'i

Things Worth Knowing ' '
Measuring Grain. By the United States
Standard 2150 cubic inches make a bushel.
Now, as a cubic foot contains 172Q cubjo .
inches, a bushel is to a cubic foot as 2150 to ',
1728; or, for practical purposes,. as 4 W5..t
rherefore, to convert cubic feet to bushel,.'. ,
it is necessary to multiply by four-fifths.
Example. How much grain will a biu hold -which
is 10' Jfeet long, 4 feet wide, and 4 feet
deep? Solution. 10 multiplied by 4, equals ,
160 cubic feet. 160 multiplied by . four-
fifths, equals 128, the number of bushels. , k
lb Measure Grain on the' Floor. Make
the pile in form of a pyramid or cone, and
multiply the area of the base by one-third
the height. To find the area of the base, i
multiply the square of ita diameter br the'
decimal 7854. Example. A conical pile of -grain
is 8 feet in diameter and 4 feet high.
How many bushels does it ooutaiu? ,- Soh i
tion. The square of 8 is 64 ; and 04 raulti- r
plied by 7854, multiplied by four-thirds,:
equals S3. 766, the number of cubic feet, n
Therefore, fe3. 766 multiplied by four-fifths,
equals 07.02 bushels. .. ;,..;.- i .
