What matter, friend, though you and I
May sow, and others gather?
We build, and others occupy,
Each laboring for the other.
What though we toil from sun to sun,
And men forget to flatter
The noblest work our hands have done
If God approve, what matter?
What matter though we sow in tears,
And crops fail at the reaping;
What though the fruit of patient years
Fast perish in our keeping;
Upon our hoarded treasure, floods
Arise and tempests gather
If faith beholds beyond the clouds
A clear sky, what matter?
What matter though our castles fall,
And disappear while building;
Though strange handwriting on the wall,
Flame out amid the gilding;
1Though every idol of the heart
The hand of death may shatter;
Though hopes decay ..nd friends depart
If heaven be ours, what matter?
i MOTIIER'S SIRfffE1
A fire burned in the low grate,
but the little light it gave re
vealed all the grace of Mrs. Wing
field's slight form in its close
fitting robes of black. To-night,
for the first time in her two years
of widowhood, she laid off the
widow's cap, which had for so
lorg served to conceal the thick
auburn braids so artistically coiled
about the small head. Perhaps
for this same reason she had dis
missed the butler when he en
tered according to custom to light
lamps, or perhaps because the
slow ticking of the clock upon
the mantel revealed to her suffi
ciently the lapse of time without
compelling her to distinguish the
hands upon the face of the dial
drawing nearer and nearer the
hour whose close approach dis
sipated the calmness she vainly
strove to gain.
Eigrhteen years bad passed since
she and Arthur Main waring had
met. They had been lovers in
that far-off ime, but he was poor
then, with no whisper in the air
of the rich in beritancee to whbich
he afterward fell heir, just too
late for it to bring happiness to
either. Not that they cared for
wealth: either of them, but then
there were older, wiser minds to
judge for both, and so, each vow
ing eternal vows, they were torn
Six short months later she
married. Edward Wingfield. He
was, fortunately, not a man to
look for love and sentiment in his
young wife-only wifely duty and
obedience. In these she never
failed him, and after his death the
world found proof of his esteem inm
the faet that to his widow revert
ed all his fortune, untrammeled(
by a single reservation.
She had married very young.
She was but thirty-five now.
Would he fin d her changed, she
wondered-he for whose comingI
she waited here to-day?
Simultaneously with tbe thouightj
came the sound of carriage-|
wheels and horses' hc.ofs on
the gravelcd walk. She started
to her feet, pressing both hands
upon her fast- beating heart. On
ly tbat morning she had received
the telegram announcing Arthur
Main waring's coming, and already
he was here. She was glad, oh
so glad, that the room was dark,
when she heard the quick, firm
tread she had sometimes heard
in her dreams during these long
years of dutiful living ; so glad
that he could not see the quick
blusb, which put her matronhbo>d
to shame, when the door was
thrown basily open, and three or
four swift strides brought him to

An uncomfortable sensation rose

And then he laid her down out
of his arms, as though, with re
turning life, he remembered the
duty it brought with it.
The mother sprang forward.
'Do not be alarmed,' Mr. Main
waring said, gently, on seeing
her. 'Her horse threw her. I
think there is no serious injury.'
No serious injury ! None to
Dora, but Barbara knew that her
wound was past her. .
When, a few hours later, they
knew that there was no need for
anxiety on her account, Barbara
shut herself up within her own
room to fight her battle.
'I cannot give him up,' she
moaned. 'He does not know his
own heart. He will forget this
child, and she-sbe cannot love
But even as she reasoned came
the remembrance of the one word,
'Arthur !' and the tone in which
she had spoken it.
'I will try her,' she said, and
for the first time in her life came
a feeling of bitter resentment even
against her child.
They were sitting together in
the library as she entered.
'Arthur,' she said, 'I think it is
time that we told Dora the truth.'
The man's face paled. She could
almost see him gird his soul for
the conflict, and crush out his
heart behind his honor. Even
Dora looked up with a suspicion of

said turning to her daughter ; 'has

Then she saw that the steel had
struck home. The child answered
nothing as she turned two wet,
reproachful eyes to him, who
dared not meet their gaze. Until
this instant she had not known
that'she possessed a heart. She
learned it now to her cruel cost.

GRANT'S GREATEST BLiN- to
A Scorching Comment from the New York
Alluding to the recently published a
interview with Grant, in which the
ex-President attacks Gen. Hancock,
the New York Herald of Thursday,
in a leading editorial, says : sti
It will not raise Gen. Grant in the de
the esteem even of Republicans to see
him descending to abuse of a fellow
soldier, one whose gallantry and de- *
votion to the Union he had on pre- ri
vious occasions freely and of his own
motion acknowledged, and in whom, th
indeed, he had expressed the most en
tire confidence. To say now, in the t
heat and excitement of a political can- th
vass, that the Democratic candidate is *ad
vain, that he is ambitious of the Pres- .
idency, that he is a petty character, an
only brings to everybody's recollection ren
that in his cooler moments and be- ti
fore he was moved by what will be
generally esteemed partisan rancor, ca
General Grant said : "There are men
in that organization (the Democratic to
party, men like Bayard, McClellan,
Hancock and others whom I know. th
They are a loyal and patriotic as any Cc
men. B3ayard, for instance, would
make a splendid President. I would ch
not be afraid of the others in that of
Recalling this language we may
pass over what the General now says
of his fellow soldier as an ebullition of
partisan spleen, which, as it is un
worthy of him, the public ought to
overlook and forget. It has no weight th
nor any importance except as it raises
a regret in generous minds to see so
eminent a man so forget himself.
But there is other matter in the
conversation which, now that it is au
thenticated by its author, becomes of ta
importance, and, as it will be generally th
discussed, forces itself upon the atten
tiou of the people. "What if Han -
cock should be elected ?" Grant's in
terlocutor asked, and the General
made a reply which appears to us to
show that he only dimly comprehends ~
the guard wbich our Constitution m
happily places over the general safety' tA
and particularly over the rights of mi- t
norities. He said : e
"Then the North would submit i
quietly and watch closely. As soon e
as things began to go wrong every ts
Northern Legislature would be con- s
vened and! compel their Representa- gy
lives to resign or resist the Solid it
Surely he here totally forgot him- 5
self. If Gen. Hancock is elected it
will be necessarily by Northern as F
well as Southern electoral votes ; it
will be by the defeat at the polls, not
of "The North." but of the Republi- 'j
can party ; and~ how far that is from
being "The North," the General
would see if he would recall that in
1876 the Democrats in the Northern
States cast a vote so great that in
New York they had a majority ; in e
Illinois they lacked less than twenty
thousand of casting as many votes as
the Republicans, and a change of ten
thousand votes would have given them
the State; in Ohio they wanted only
three or four thousand of carrying the a
State, and so on in oth2er Northern f
States, in the most of which there are f
nearly as many Democrats as Repub
licans, while in at least four there
were then more. To talk, therefore,
of "The North" as assuming an atti
tude of rcsistance, or of calling Leg- r
islatures together is, to speak mildly,
language which we sincerely regret to
see so eminent a man allowing himself L
If Gen. Hancock should be elected
undoubtedly '-The North" will "sub-.r
mit quietly." Why not ? South and
North both submitted quietly when
Mr. Hayes, whom not merely thea
South, but almost tha whole North
did not believe elected, was placed in tc
the executive chair by an arbitration.
If Gen. Hancock should be elected the.
Republicans would "watch closely,"
to use Gen. Grant's phrase; they
would be on the alert to take advan- i
tag of every blunder, small or great,~
made by Hancock and his party, and
in this they would act properly and
within their rights. It is in this waya
the minority in a free country be- g
comes or tries to become the majority
-by "watching closely" the acts of
the majority, and exposing their th
wrondig to the people. Tt is this of
iich the Democrats have done. and
ay are now exposing the acts of the
,publicans, and by this means hope
persuade the people to put them in
But what talk is this of convening
>rthern Legislatures and forcing
ngressmen to resign ? What con
tutional warrant is there for so wild
proposition ? We deeply regret to
Gee. Grant so utterly forget him
f, and not only himself, but the
t that we are living under a Con
tution, and that orderly freedom
pends upon our observing carefully
limitations. If the people should
re the Democrats a trial they will
t thereby surrender themselves or
hts and their property to them ; in
is country, so emineut a public man
Gen. Grant ought to remember the
ople never give to any party more
in it is entirely safe to trust out of
eir owu hands. We do not need to
opt the wild and revolutionary de
,e of calling Legislatures together
d forcing members of Congress to
ign, because we hold frequent elee
us, and before any party in power
z do serious harm, before, in fact, it
2 begin to do harm, a new election
ables the people to punish them and
put the other party in their place.
If Gen. Hancock should be-elected,
refore, the country, living under a
Institution, will go on safely and
*eneiy. The Republicans will "watch
ssely," their able public men and
irnals will raise a vigorous outcry
the people on the least sign of Dem.
ratic wrong-doing; and as the Dem.
rats will know themselves to be ac
pted like new servants, only on trust,
ey will be far more careful than the
spublicans would be to avoid even
e suspicion of wrongdoing. They
11 know that the Republicans might
opose and do many things without
mark which would ruin the Demo
its; hence, as they will desire. to re
in the public favor and confidence,
mmon sense leads us to expect from
em even a more conservative and
utious policy than the Republicans

that every part may be kept com
tortabiy warm. A noted writer
in the Medical Journal says, con
ernicg this subject: We serious
ly think that many lives are sac
rificed to ignorance and erroneous
ideas. Among the poor the scant
iness of children's clothing is quite
remarkable. Winter and summer
are not distinguished by any
change of dress ; short sleeves,
bare necks and legs are not the
exception, they are the rule ; cot
ton or thin stuffs are not changed
for woollen or flannel, and sc on in
all other respects; beyond a shawl
or some such addition, there is
very little difference between their
clothing in summer and winter.
Yet this system is not the result
of carelessness. It has become
a custom, which has many sup
oorters. It does not occur .to
most people that the air inside
their houses, if they are properly
ventilated, is as pure as the air
outside. We should say that no
child too young to walk or run
should be taken out when the ex
ternal temperature is below fifty
degrees ; that the rooms in which
they live and sleep should never
be below fifty-eight degrees ; and
the day room should be three or
four degrees warmer. We would
earnestly appeal to mothers to put
aside all feelings of vanity, or
what is sometimes miscalled natu
ral pride, and cover the -arms,
neck and legs of their children as
a siminpie sanitary precaution. High
frocks, long sleeves and warm
stockings should be worn out of
doors. Hats should cover the
head, and boots are important to
keep the feet as dry and warm as
possible. On coming in from our
streets, nearly always damp, both
boots and stockings should be
changed. If the feet be cold, a
warm foot bath should be used for
a few minutes. The exquisite pain
of chilblains could be saved to
many children by this use of hot
water for hands and feet. WYe see
