Courtship alter Marriage.
Thcro was much more than si mere
witicism in the remark vd the old baeho
lor who had paid attentions to a tnaiden
lady * for twenty years, visiting her
regularly every night, when rallied rot
not marrying. "If 1 were married 1
should, have uohody to court, and no
place to go at night." lie had deeply
felt the contrast between his own deli j
cute and ethereal enjoy incuts, and tho |
hard, discontented, Irctted life of too |
many married people; and hid answer
was irony. Ho saw there wus something
in courtship whiuh too ofteu exhales and
expires after marriage, leuvin 5 u cold,
duli, monotonous burden .Tliero all was
beauty a??d buoyancy before. Let us
see what that something is. In court
feint) nothing is taken for grunted. Uotli
parties are put on their good behaviour
Love keeps itself fresh and active by
constant expression in word ami net
But, strange to say, the courtship usual
ly ends with marriage. Very snbh both
parties yield to the fciiho of possession
and the feclt'Jg of security robs gallnui
ry of motive and extracts the poetry
from the mind. The beautiful tittJn
tions which were so pleasing before
marriage are ofteu forgotten afterward ;
the gilts cease, or come only with the
uskiug ; the music dies out of the voice,
everything i-^ taken for grunted, and the
love that, like the silver jot of the
fountain, haps to heaven, denied its
natural outlet, ceases lo flow altogether.
Then oou.e dull, heavy, hard days, with
t.-'.>o uiihappinesses tied together wishing
themselves apart and not always content
w.th merely wishing. This is tin natural,
a id wrong.

as tho first, b}- giving it constant utter

allowed to flow out in delicate attentions
and noble service, the stronger und
more sauctilying and more blessed it
will be. The house, becomes home only
when love drops its heavenly mauiiii in

is made not once for all at the altar, but

Anecdote of Rossini.
An organ grinder can hardly be class
rd among musicians, and there seems to
be but little opportunity for a display oi
skill in the monotonous round of his
performances. Botaiui, however, ap
pears to have thought that no one cou
nccted in uny with music ought to be
wholly mechanical in its execution, and
once gave an organ grinder a lesson. It
ie said (bathe camo one day upon a man
playing "Di Tanti Palpiti'' on a hur
dy gurdy. 'J ho performer was astonished
to hear a voico from the crowd suddenly
exclaim: 'Taster, faster!" "How
faster?" says tho organ man. "Turn
tho hundle-quiokor 3 it is alto/ro." "Hut,
sir, 1 don't know?." "Like this ; 8u?
so," und Rossini rushed upon tho organ
and ground out tho tune to tho proper
time. "Thunk you, sir," eaid the. man :
"I shall rppieinbor the lesson ;" i*nd, in
fact, on t|?p next day he was beard in
tho sanin place, playing "Di Tanti
j'alpili," ob he had beep taught. "Rravo,
bravo, bruvp !" exclaimed Rossini from
a winilpw, und dropped u louis d'or at

The Itcv. John Hancock wars pastor
of the church at Lexington, Massa

broke but some twenty yours after he
was dead. The Rev. Theodore Parker
was brought up in the parish where
Mr*. Hancock had spent Iiis days, and
tradition having preserved some curious
i iciden's in his life, Mr. Parker hast
recorded them. One 1 act, thus attested,
shows the moral power a good man has
over his people, even in matters that do
not properly bolotir* to his office. Jt
often happens in rural p-irishcs,especial
ly in newly settled countries, that dis
putes ariso among neighboring farmers
us to the bouudurj lines of their estates.
On such occasions law-suits, hitter pro
tracted and destructive; sometimes arise,
and not seldom they are handed down
from father to son. [t was a practice
of 31 r. Hancock to settle such disputed
when he could, and in a very summary
way. Going to the house of one of the
c intending parties, he says to him :
?'Joseph, 1 hear you quarrel with your
neighbor Heed "
"Why." says .loseph, UWC haven't
icaly got our horns together."
"Ah, but [ hear you are disputing
about your lands. Now take your deed

many of llicin. Love, lull, complete,

the attractions which make one human

AH these are uiiselli.-h. As for the
selfish cnnsciuusocsseas which the
wuudcrlul English minnesinger, by a
noble material fall.icy included In his
assertion, they are comprehended, if at
all, only negatively, as crime and misery
are included in Christi iu society, to be
reversed and eliminated. Um without
any one of these unselfish elements,
love, though it may be love, is imper
fect. Still more, or rather most of all,
is any one of them aloUQ tin imperfect
love. The oi l snw that ''Pity is akin
to Love," is just as true pud no more,
as that beauty is conccrneJ with love.
The beautiful object must ^be lovable
too; the pitied object must be lovable
too, fcbeloic there can be a love in con.se
quenco of the beauty or of tho pity.
When Xerxes cjewclod the beautiful
tree he showed how love for a tree is
not lovo. Whatever love comes of pity
may be foil for u dog. Of sympathy in
the sense of co suffering, of paiu by
reason of the pain of another, tho like
is truo. Whatover love comes of such
?sympathy, may be (pit by man for benst,
or by man lor man. It is the sympathy
of co-onjoyinont which is a liooesfliry
pnrt of lovo. Surrender is the measure
of lovo. This is truo equally towards
God and man ; tho truth is so deep a3 to
be of tho Bubbtructuro of both loves, and
it 'is conclusive accordingly of tho cri

(?Suggestion on Feoding aadi Groom

Every cavalry-man of any experience
in tho lato war can testily,'that tho old
theory in regard to green feed hoing
injurious to work horses is fallacious. Jit"
the animal is unaccustomed to grass,
oatiug too much, or hard'oxcrciso soon
after eating, will certainly do harm ; hut
tf the horse is accustomed to grazing and
wotk, lib diet is so healthy^.
In our cotton, peanut1; and tobacco
country, as a general r liter the horse is
expected to be a living skeleton when *
the crop is laid by. This'in due more to
the small amount of graste and hay al
lowed theni than for lack <>f grain. Ask
a fhrmci bow is it bis horajis are so thin,
and he tells you how much corn they
get, not knowing or forgetting, that
corii alone will, in a shortjtime, kill tho
most hardy auiraal.
In the western part T)f this State a
horse is allowed a small amount of grain
and hay without stint. They keep fat.
To Texas, Arkansas and tm frontier the
rule is to work nil day and feed to grain,
and ?.Maxe all night. Tlioir wot k horses
