HE senate and House
are playing tit for tat
at the people's expense. The
senate will pass a bill and
send it over to the House,
which body, instead of ratify
g or cofirming, will straight
way kill it; next day the
House will adopt a measure
and send it to the senate
where it also receives a knock
out blow. Perhaps it is well,
for fewer laws will be passed
the fewer the better.

THE latest bid from the
Republicans for the
colored vote, where such a
vote is cast, was the bill intro
duced b}* Hanna in the nati

pension for all ex-slaves over
50 years of age. This is about
as much a delusion as was
the promise of "40 acres and
a mule." It will never become
a law because its passage
would mean that several hun

be paid out in the south, to
which the Republicans would
never consent. Being a poli

FOR THE SAKS OF THE CHILD.
BY-MRS. J. M. HUNTER.
HE was a bright, hand
some little fellow of
.ix or seven years, at least
that was my impression as he
came bounding into the cozy
sitting room, where his mother
and I sat engaged in earnest
conversation. Catching 6ight
of me, he paused for a mo
ment, and then rushed up to
his mother with, "Say, mam
ma, Pm going over to see Jim
Morris; he called me across
the street, and I'm goin?
over." I noticed that he did
lermission to go, but
have a jolly show, and he
wants me to come, and Pm
going" and with that he was
off, before the little woman
could offer further remon
A troubled look came into
her face as she said, "I'm sure
I don't know what is to be
done with Freddie ! Such as
sociations will ruin him, but
he pays no attention to my
Ah, I reflected, another
instance where family gov
ernment is only "a govern
ment of persuasion," and
when that fails, as it usually
does, nothing more is done.
My heart yearned over the
bo> as 1 thought what he
might be made if properly re
strained, and what he would
surely become if allowed to
go on in his own way. How
many otherwise good moth
ers, like this one, have not
firmness to exercise the need
ed discipline with their chil
dren I Often the very tone
in which they speak to the
child, says plainly; "I know
you are not going to obey,
but PH just tell you what you
ought to do, and then if you
won't mind, I can't help it."
Punishment, they say, "Ms
too cruel to be thought of."
O, dear parents, is it not
much more cruel to allow your
children to go on in the evil
ways that will at last lead to
eternal punishment! Is it not
your duty to enforce yourright
ful authority, and see that
your instructions are carried
out? Why did God deal as
he did with Eli ? Because
his sons did evil ?ind he "res
strained them not." No
doubt he instructed, advised
and persuaded, but this was
enough. He should have re
strained. "Foolishness is
bound in the heart of a child,
but the rod of correction
shall drive it far from him."
Inherent sin is too strong to
be overcome simply by mild
words of advice and persua
A case in point is that of
mother who gently requested
her young son to bring in
some wood. He flatly re
fused; and then she only said :
"Now, Artie, be a pretty boy,
and do as mamma tells you.
But Artie was not ambitious to
"beapretty boy" and so the

manhood; but he is a great

I think now of an unusually
interesting child who could be
easily restrained and made
very sweet and lovable, but
his doting parents affirm that
they are "going to control him
by love," and so about the
only reproof they ever give is
to say very lamely, "Son, I
wouldn't do that." So "son"
goes on having his own way,
becoming more and more
perverse and wilful, and mak
