For love of sta and land,

A HUSBAND'S PRAISE.
" Her busb.nd, he pratseth her."-SOLOUON.
Husbands often do not know with what
Cpa%e!es? s??Hc?titd? the duties ol' a wife
and mother ure: accompanied. Th?.y leaye
b<mie early, many of them ; the routine
of hilliness-thu same as it was yester
dav, and ? ill he !<>r months to chittys-is
so thoroughly digested that the pei form -
ance is comparatively without annoyance.
They have no heavy or wearying house
hold wok todo, no fret ti fg little ones
hanging on lo their garments, now to
nurse, now to correct, now lo instruct ;
while still the dusting, and the cleansing,
aud the preparing of food must be going
on, and the little garments must be nice
ly fitted and made, or all would be unti
diness and confusion. Yet how many an
a.lroit manager contrives to get through
with all this, willingly-if shew but ap
preciated, and her valuable services es
teemed-to endure, calmly, the (rials in
cident to her lot, keeping care from her
pleasant face by a merry spirit and cheer
But if she never hears the kind words,
u. 1 thank you," or beholds the beautiful
smile that unuttered gratitude spreads
upon the countenance of him for whom
she has forsaken all, what immeasurable
anguish'will she not experience!
We have often thought how poignant
must bc the grief, how heavy the disap
pointment of the young wife, when i-he
?irst learns that the husband of her choice
is indifferent to .her studied efforts to
Gaily as thc bird upon the tree by her
doorside she has gone cai oiling about her
domestic duties. Like a skiliful painter
shu has touched and retouchedall the pe
culiar though simple luxuries of* her
home, till they seem to her like the adorn
ing:; of a paradise
The hearth is bright and red-not a
speck of dust is visible. She has brought
out all her hoarded wealth ; and the ta
bles, the new-varnished bureau, and the
easy arm-chair, shine in snowy garniture.
She has placed the pictures in the best
light, made all things look cheerful and
bright, placed a bouquet of brilliant flow
ers upon the neat supper-table, and an
other above the fireplace, and with pleas
ant anticipations she awaits his return.
" How cheerful everything looks ! And
how pleased he will bc ! He will com
mend my care and taste."
Presently the well known step draws
near ; she flies with a happy smile to
meet him, and together they enter their
What ! No tign of surprise 1 No. new
delight on his features ? Does he receive
all her attention, as a matter of course
something looked for, expected, easily
done, and without price ? Can he not pay
her the tribute of a glad smile ? Alas
he doe3 not believe in praise ; his wife
must be disinterested ; must look upon
these performances as stern duties; if he
praise now, and forget to praise again,
they may be discontinued.
She is disappointed, chagrined; and
unless taste and perfect neatness are in
dispensable to her own comfort, she grad
ually wearies in well-doing when a little
encouragement, a little praise, might have
stimulated her to constant exertion.
Many a wife becomes careless of her
appearance because of her husband's in
difference, in the simple matter of dress
-not so simple, either !-how often men
think it- beneath them to notice or ap
prove the choice their wives may make !
We once remarked to a gentleman that
his wife displayed admirable taste in her
attire ; and what, think you, was his an
swer ? With a sigh we record it : " Has
she? Well, now, I should hardly know
what she had on."
Now we do like to sec a husband no
tice such things, even to particularity.
We like to hear him give his opinion as
to whether such and such a thing is be
coming to his wife. We are pleased, to
see a father interested in the little pur
r.uases of his children, instead saying with
a frown, " On ! go away ; I. don't care for
such things ; suit yourselves."
And in household corners the husband
should express his approbation of neat
ness and order ; he should be grateful for
any little effort that may have been put
forth to add to his comfort and pleasure ;
he should commend the good graces of
his wife, and at fitting times make men
tion of them. Indeed, not one alone, but
both should reciprocate the good offices
of the other. We never esteemed a wo
man the less on hearing her say. " 1 have
a good husband ;" we never thought a
man wanting in dignity who spoke of his
wifd as being dear te him, or quoted her
amiability or industry as worthy of imi
tation by others. Who does not esteem
the unaffected praise of a husband or a
wife, above that of all beside. No mo
tive but love induces either lo
" Speak tue gentle word*.
That sink into the hoarty
Solomon says, " Her husband, he prais
eth her ;" and only the morose and reserv
ed, who care not to fill the fount of kind
liness by pleasant word?, differ from the
flow many a home h?ve we seen glit
tering with splendor; where glowing
marble, from Italia's cline, giyes a silent
welcome to the entering guest ; where on
the walls hang votive offerings of art that
fill the whole soul with their beauty;
where the carpets yield to the lightest
pressure, and the rich hangings crimson
the palest cheek-yet amidst all this show \
?nd adorning has thc proud wife s&t} thc ( ^e
choicest piece of furniture there-for so
her husband regards her. Formal and
stern, ha has thrown around her the dra
pery of his chill heart, and it has folded
about her like marble. She is li my la
dy," and nothing more. No outburst ol
affection in. the form of sweet praise falls
upon her e ?rs ; pendants of diamonds
drop therefrom, biit their shining is like
his love, costly and cold. We have heard
such a one say, in times gone by, " Al!
this show and pride of station, would I
resign, for one word of praise from my
The Railway Switch Tender and his
Oh! the value, the inestimable value
to youth, of a prompt obedience to pa
rental commands! An anecdote strik
ingly illustrative of this, as well as set
ting forth Christian heroism of an exalted
character, has recently occurred in Prus
sia. On one of the railroands in that
country, a switch tender was just taking
his place, in order to turn a coming train
then *m sight, on a different track, to.pre
vent a collision with a train approaching
in a contrary direction. Just at this mo
ment, on turning his head, he discerned
his little son playing on the track of the
advancing envine. What could he do?
Thought was quick at such a moment of
peril ! Ile might spring to his child and
rescue him, but he could not do this and
turn the switch at the same time, and for
want of that, hundreds of lives might be
lost. Although in sore trouble, he could
not neglect his greater duty, but, exclaim
ing with a loud voice to his son, " Liu
down." he laid hold of the switch, and
saw the train;safely turned on its proper
track. His boy, accustomed to obedience,
.lid as his father commanded him, and the
tearfully heavy train thundered over him.
Little, did thc passengers dream, as they
found themselves quietly r?sting on that
turnout, what terrible anguish their ap
proach had that day' caused to one noble
heart. The father rushed forward to
where his boy lay, fearful lest he should
lind only a mangled corpse, but, to his
great joy and thankful gratitude, he found
him alive and unharmed. Prompt obe
dience had saved him. Had he paused
to argue, lo reason whether it were best
-death and fearful mutilation of body
would have resulted. "The circumstances
connected with this event were made
known to the King of Prussia, who the
next day sent for thc man and presented
him with a meda) of honor for his he
Dear reader, couldst thou have done
as this switch tender did \ Consider.
Thy darling-the delight of thine eyes,
the joy of thy heart, about to be crushed
and mangled by that coming train, and
thou couldst save him by neglecting thc
switch ! The momentary contest in the
bosom of this noble man must have been
intensely Agonizing. We. can all rejoice
with him when he found his obedient
child uninjured by the mighty hurricane
of power that had whirled over hts head
-but let us pause and consider, could
we haye done as he did ? And then an
other question may claim the serious
thoughtfulness of parents. Have we
brought up our children in such habits of
prompt, unhesitating obedience, as char
acterized this little boy ?
Taking- a Dislike.
An ill-natured fellow quarreled with
his sweetheart on the day they were to
be married. After the ceremony bad
begun, he was asked :
" Do you take this woman to be your
wedded wife," etc.
He replied, "No!"
" What is the reason?" asked thc min
"I've taken a dislike to her, and that's
enough," was the surly reply.
The parties retired-thc bride in tears
-and, after much persuasion, the groom
was induced to have the marriage pro
ceed. It was now thc lady's turn, and
when the minister asked the all-important
" No !" said she, resolutely, " I've ta
sen a dislike to him."
The groom, admiring her spunk, made
;hc matter up with her as soon as possi
jle, anda third time they presented them
ielves before the minister, who began the
ceremony by asking the usual questions,
vhich were satisfactorily answered this
.ime. But to the astonishment of the
jarty the minister continued :
" Well, I'm glad to hear that you arc
villing to take each other for husband
md wife, for it is a good thing to be of
brgiving tempers. You can go now and
:et married where you will-I will not
ie the knot, for I have taken a dislike to
loth of you."

very occupant wish for a slice, but to
be astonishment of every guest, a burley

icontinently appropriated thc entire roast,
'he landlord happened to be absent, and

A New Englander, riding in a railroad

jnish the other passengers with tough
tories about Yankeedom. At last lie
mentioned that one of his neighbors owned

ansation, and the Yankee perceiving that
is veracity was in danger of being quos

A Benevolent Minister,
Not Tong since, a small boy, in very
dilapidated clothing, called at the resi
dence of Kev. Mr. R.-J and asked for
something to eat. The servant who came
to the door asked the minister what she
should give him, when he pointed to a
pile of bread that was very stale, saying,
'.Give him some of that." The servant
did so, und, as the boy was going away,
chewing on the ernst of bread, tho min
ister called out, " Bridget, send that little
boy here." The little fellow went imo
the dining-room, where the minister and
Iiis family were about sitting down to
dinner, and 'was staring at thc eatables on

HAIR-BRUSHES Axn COMES-Children
hould be taught, from their earliest re
nenibrance, the importance of keeping
he hair clean, not so much by the use of
he comb as 'the brash. Two sorts of
:ombs are used, fine and coarse, made
ither of ivory or bone; when thc brush
las bien well used, there is seldom any
lecessity for the fine tooth comb, and the
mention of using the coarse comb is
nerely to disentangle the hair and pre
mire it for the brush. Nothing is more
njurious to the skin of the head than the
roquent application of the small tooth
om b, the points of the teeth of which
cratch and otherwise irritate the scalp,
?liding more that any other cause to the
)rmation of scurf. It cannot be too
trictly impressed upon the minds of pa
ints, if they would see their offspring
lessed with a good head of hair, to re
.ain as much as possible from the use of
ie small comb ; a moderately hard brush
quite sufficient to keep the head and
air clean, and should be used the first
ling in the morning, on account of the
