"It's no use. Becky," said the
little lame cobbler, dropping his
head upon his hands and looking
as he felt, the personification of
despair. "I've offended the Lord
somehow, and IIe won't let me
have a chance to keep a home over
our heads. I know I'm not all I
ought to be, and 'min punished."
Becky went across the room and
patted her husband on the back.
"Now. don't take on. Nick, don't'
she said. "That can't be, for le
as knows all, knows how good you t
are. Better times'il come. They t
are sure to, and you will be reward- I

The cobbler shook his head. t

said. "What with the rent and the 1

"Used," sighed poor Nick.
"Why, it can't be all up hill,"
said Becky. "I haven't time to go
out gallivanting now, but ha, I don'1t

"Oh. Becky,' said the cobbler,
"yvou try to keep up heart, but you
know it's come to starving."
They looked at each other, and
then Becky p)ut her arms about her
husband. She did not weep upon
his bosom; she was so big and<
strong and lie so small and frail,
that it only seemed natural to re
verse matters. She hiugg~ed him up
to her shoulder, and covered his
head over with her apron and put
her cheek down outside the bundle I
thus made, and soothed and patted<
him as if lie had been a baby. B ut a

seemed made for crying.
"You stay at _home and mind the

Then she paused; the secret was
out. Nick's eye had danced to

again to her face.
"Oh, Becky !" lie cried. "-Becky r

Becky flushed scarlet. t

when a blaze of light Irom an open d

One other charge-or rather in

it you do not say how I am nmak

muld not have read that bill, for

I hold my place in the Senate o
the United States tbrough the ac
tion of the Legislature of South
Carolina, and the members of that
body arg, in a special manner, m:
immediate constituents. I regard
it therefore as my duty, as it cer
tainly is my pleasure, to represen
their expressed wishes. I shal
always pursue this course, unlessJ
am called on to violate my honesi
convictions of what is right, and
this contingency, I am sure wil:
If this bill becomes a law, it will,
is my judgment prove of incalcula
ble benifit to our people. It will
double the means of educating ou:
children without increasing the
burdens of taxation; it will place
within the reach of every man the
inestimable blessings of education
it will help us to remove the stigmi
of ignorance which now rests upor
ue. and it will put in the hands oj
every man those mighty weapon:
which always give the victory in the
great battle of life to knowledgE
and education, when wielded by
inte'ligence and virtue.
Believing this firmly and honest
ly, I gave a hearty support to the
Educational Bill. I regret that
this measure does not meet you;
approval, but 1 have no complain:
to make as to your opp)osition to it,
nor to your criticism upon th(
course I have taken. All my pub

discussion or criticism, and I only
write to show you that you ar(
mistaken in your premises. 'W

DONE WITH NEATNESS AND DISPAT(B
I is this: In the spring of the year
n the inhabitants of the villages and
e hamlets shut up their cottages, and
r driving their cattle before them, as
s cend the mountains and live in
their chalets during the summer
n months. They do not stay in one
e chalet all the time, but when the
s pasturage becomes poor, ascend to
e another, and still another, chang
> ing their abode perhaps eight or
t nine times in the course of the sea
y son. The scanty furniture of the
different chalets remains in them
from year to year, as they have but
to bring the implements they re
quire for the making of their but
s ter and cheese. These the father
e carries, the elder children helping
him; the little children ran by his
f side, and the mother lifts the cradle
t with the baby in it, on her head,
a fastens the milk pail and the family
t umbrella on her shoulders, and
- taking her knitting in her hand,
i works away industriously at a pair
- of coarse worsted gaiters for Seppi,
or a neckerchief for Kathi. as she
- ascends the mountain. What
would the mother do if she had
to hoist an English cradle on her
head, and ascend the steep moun
tain with it?

WHERE WERE DOLLs FIRsT
MADE -Nobody know's but they
have been used since very early
times ; and by children in all coun
tries, savage as well as civilized.
The largest manufactories for dolls
are in England, and as in other
trades, there is a very minute divis
ion of labor. Somne carve the heads
and the bodies, others paint the
Ifaces and necks, others prepare legs
and arms, and still others cut out,
sew, and put on the dresses. The
extent to which dolls' glass eyes
are manufactured is surprising.
One firm in Birmingham received a
single order for over $2,000 worth.
It is said that the blue eyed dolls
are the favorites in England and
black eved ones on the continent
of Europe. Black dolls are made
of gutta-percha to export to this
country, where they are in demand
by the colored people.

a couple of weeks' board, and so
at the breakfast table he said in a
loud tone of voice:
"Ah, Mrs. llendricks?"
"Yes, Mr. Dumley.'
* Ah, will you be kind enough to
pour a little cold water in my coffee ?
It is too strong and hot.'
A fter breakfast she said:
"Certainly, Mr. Dumley, I will
accommodate you willingly."
