FOR THE H8$AILD.
Life is short but its checkered path,
How many a weary windiug hath,
Dear mother lean heavier still on me,
Together we'll breast life's turbulent sea.
My arms are around you, my hand in- thine,
Your joys and your sorrows, shall ever be
The clouds are dark, but beyond 'tis light,
The dawning will break o'er the darkest
I know that with pain your hours are rife,
Each day and hour of your invalid life,
But hear you the Nazarene sweetly say,
Truly thy strength shall be as thy day.
Tozether we'll kneel at Calvary's cross,
Finding His love, count all else dross.
For mother, the Shepherd forgets not His
And not even a lamb leaves out in the cold.

Economy and Reform.
There is a great cry of reform. But
practically it does not amount to much
so far as our legislators at Washing
ton are concerned. They believe it is
the chief end of man's creation to pay
taxes-that citizens we.e made for the
express purpose of supporting govern
ment, forgetting that government was
made for the benefit of the citizens,
and not the citizens for the benefit of
the government. Once. in a while
they lop off expenses where there is
no occasion for it as Congress did at
.the preceding session, and then put
them back again at the next. The
proper place for a public officer to be.
gin the work of economy is with sala
ries-his own salary especially. But
our legislators do not see it in that
light. Charity may begin at home,
but reform and economy do not with
them. Last week, when a bill was
introduced to reduce the President's
salary to $25,000, at wbich figure it
had always stood till four years ago,
the bill was promptly voted down by
an overwhelming majority. And the
bill to reduce the salaries of Congress.
men from $5,000 a year to $4,500
met with the same reception. While
All classes of citizens are compelled to
reduce their expenditures to the very
lowest point, to stint and save to the
utmost limit, Congressmen and other
public servants (?) are receiving enor
mous salaries, and in many cases
their services are worth absolutely
nothing. The pay is so large thai
that is most commonly the end and ob.
ject of office. The noble ambition for
honorable distinction has, to a large
degree, given place to a miserable
Igreed for money- Men get $5,000 as
Congressmen who could not command
one-third of that amount in private
business. Then corrupt and incom
petent meng,et in :they can afford te
pay a large sum to secure their elec
tion, and there is no doubt this is fre
quently done. But we don't propos
to discuss this feature of the subject.
The plain Yact, as it appears to a pri.
vate citizen, is, $25,000 is ample for
the yearly salary of a President, and
$4,500 is big pay for Congressmen.
By reducing to these figures a saving
would be made to the country of near
ly $200,000. Then the work of econ
omy and reform, beginning at the
source, could extend itself to all the
branches of government; the public
dcbt could thereby be reduced, and
free trade could be established to the
great benefit of a large portion of the

by the Synod to raise an endowment
of $50,000, who has raised, in mone~

should have it here. The greatest
expense in giving boys a College edu
cation is boarding them abroad. Thai
expense would be saved by having the
College here. Forty, fifty or a hun
dred boarding students would con
tribute $250 or $300 apiece yearly to
the town. The Professors and their
families would be desirable accessions
to the place. The citizens of New
berry must move if they want the

efforts to get it. Anderson wants it,
