The Two Angels.
God called the nearest angels who dwell
with him above;
The tendorsst one ~^vs. Pity, the dearest
ono was Love.
"Arise," He said, "mv angels! a wail of
woe and sin
Stoals through the gates of Heaven, and
saddens all within.
"My harps take up the mournful strain
that from a lost world swells, ?
The smoke of torment clouds the light
and blights the asphodels.
"Fly downward to that under world, and
on its souls of pain
Let Lovo drop smiles like sunshine, and
Pity tears like rain!"
Two faces bowed before the throne vailed
in their golden hair;
Four whito "wings lessened swiftly down
the dark abyss of air.
The way \vaa'strange, the flight was long;
at last the angels camo
Where swung the lost and nether world,
rod-wrapped in rayless flame.
There Pity, shuddering, wept; but Love,
with faith too strong for fear,
Took heart frora'God's almightiness, and
smiled a smile of cheer.
And lo! that tear of Pity quenched the
flame whereon it fell,
And, with the sunshine of that smile,
hope entered into hell!
Two unvailed faces, full of joy, looked
upward to the Throne,
Four whito wings folded at the feet of
Him who sat thereon!
And deeper than the sound of seas, more
soft than falling flake,
Amidst the hush of wing and song the
Voice Eternal spake:
' 'Welcome, my angels! ye have brought a
holier joy to Heaven;
Henceforth its sweetest Hong shall be the
song of ein forgiven!"
Mother Eve?Biography of an
Eminent Woman, by One who Knew
Han Well.?In writing biographies
of eminent women it is fit that we
begin with Mother Eve herself.
Eve belonged to ono of our first
families; in fact, the very first. She
was related to the first man on the
Adam side, although she had a
deep cause to regret that she ever
left Adam's side. Philosophers
?who have probed deep into the
subject, connect Eve's early career i
as a rib with the female fondness
for a ribbon. Eve became Mrs.
Adam, and they lived very happily
together for a time. There was
no other woman for her to be
jealous of, and her husband wasn't
pestered with drcss-makera' bills.
She wasn't tortured by discovering
love letters from unknown females
in Adam's coat-tail pockets, and
Adam never blew her up because
buttons weren't sewed on. Evo
never saw a fashion book or a fa?
shion plate; never wore high-heeled
boots, (sho made a slip, but she
oouldn't make a slipper) or boots;
and if there had been lots of news?
papers printed, she wouldn't have
known .now to make back numbers
available. It never occurred to hor
to go into the lecture field, and as
for voting, she didn't know what
that meant. If they were going
out to an evening party, she
didn't keep Adam waiting for her
lo dress until he was ready to
Adam ' every tiling, and he was
never known to come home with
another man's hat or overcoat on.
How Eve could'have lived witbont
some other woman to gossip with,
it is hard to under stand at this day,
but she did. Adam is supposed to
have been kept in a glow of conti?
nual happiness by the reflection that
he hadn't any motlieif-itt-law hang?
ing around, and couldn't have. Oh,
but those were delightful days,
when our first parents, in their in?
nocence and simplicity, wandered
about Eden Park, hand in hand,
discussing the improvements that
might be made. There' is little
rooord as to how Mother Eve em?
ployed herself when not wandering
m Eden. There was no sewing
society for her to be president of;
there were no clothes to bo made
np for the little heathen, as there
were very little heathen until the
settlement of New York city. She
couldn't playthe piano, because she
had none. Had she possessed one
of those boons, she would probably
Paradise without the intervention
of the serpent. She could not
paint or draw. There wasn't a
drawer on earth at that time, to
say nothing of a pair of 'em. She
oould not embroider, although her
worsted work wob a success; she
worsted the whole human race.
She couldu't receive calls, except
when Adam called her; and she got
no invitations out to tea. She "was
totally ignorant of the delights of
shopping, and never attended a
matinee in all her life. When she
went out to promenade Bhe never
looked around to seo what other
womou had on. Everything seemed
to go well with Eve until the fruit
season set in, and then?well, every
child knows the story. She was
tempted into an apple tree to pluck
some fruit that wasn't quite ripe
and fell. Adam fell, too?that in
ho fell to and helped her eat it,
although with a moanness some?
what characteristic of his sex, he
endeavored to throw all the blame
ou the woman when detected. Too
lazy to shake tho tree himself, ho
was ready enough to partake of
tho fruit when brought to his hand.
After this faux pas, Adam and Eve
were obliged to take their respect?
ive leaves of Eden. They were
fig leaves. Eve had suddenly be?
came possessed with a love for
dress, and from that early period
until tho presont that love has
gradually increased among tho sex,
until now it amounts to a veritable
passion with some of them. Eve
founded a very extensive family.
Besides the Massachusetts Adams,
the entire human, race might trace
back to Mr. and Mrs. Adr.ms, if
their traces are long enough. We
don't loam that Eve cut up much
after the affair in tho garden. If
she "raised Cain," it was because
Cain was tough and hearty. If he
had been a sickly child, perhaps
she wouldn't have been able to
It is recorded that Adam reached
the good old age of 030 years before
ho died, but no mention is made of
Eve's age when she passed away
Tho well known antipathy to telling
her age which characterizes women
in all ages and under every clime
may perhaps account for this.
waJCbflJBM^Liihd^ a translation
of the Greek word Gehenna, is a
term used to designate the valley
of Hinnom. This valley- bounds
Jerusalem on tho North, and lies
below Mount Zion?a scene of sa?
cred and imperishable association.
In this Valley Moloch, the national
god of the Amorite8 was worshipped
with the horrid and inhuman rite
of sacrificing children in the lire.
When Josiah, in his conquests,
overthrew this idolatry, he poured
contempt upon the infernal prac?
tice by casting into the valley the
bones of the departod. In the
estimation of the old Hebrews, the
bones of tho dead caused the
greatest of all pollutions. What?
ever person, place, or thing they
touched were forthwith considered
"unclean/' Hence this valley of
Hinnom, the Gehenna, this "hell,"
having been tho receptacle of the
human remains which Josiah threw
into it, was considered a place the
most polluted and accursed. From
this circumstance it became a com?
mon receptacle for all the refuse of
tho city of Jerusalem. Here large
quantities of decomposing vegeta?
ble and animal matter wo.ro rnn
stantly thrown. This putrescent
matter generated an abundance of
worms; the worms hero never died.
To prevent the noxious effluvia
springing from this mass of corrup?
tion poisoning the atmosphere and
breathing disease and death into
tho heart of tho city, fires were

place where "the worm never died
and where the fire was never
God made both tears and laugh?
ter, and both for kind purposes;
for, as laughter enablos mirth and
surprise to breathe freely, so tears
enable sorrow to vent itself patient?
ly. Tears hinder sorrow from
becoming despair and madness, and
laughter is ono of the very privi?
leges of reason, being confined to
the human species. _

now open for receiving of Taxen for
