she does it without ciime I do not see
where the shame is."

"If ihey had the necessary cultivation,
their employment would not prevent me
i'lorn doing so, 1 a.-suie you."
"But 1 hold that a woman of cultiva
tion has no need lo follow an occupation
that has a tendency to make her coarse
"Ami hold that one's occupation, if
an honest one, does not degrade them iu
tlie least. But even if it did, it is not al
ways possible lor persons of intelligence
and refinement to avoid such occupation.
Necessity is a stern master, and those
who are forced to ob-y his mandates,
against their natural inclinations, are more
lo be pitied than blamed."

"Yes, with a success which left her eo
broken iu healih that l' took years for her
to recover, and her children had to depend
on the care of strangers the while."
"Well she can draw, paint, embroider,
and is expert with her needle in almost
any department, why does she not employ
heiself in some one of these ways?"
"They are all sedentary employments,
and how much soever she might wish to,
she could not, without the same disastrous
consequences as before, broken health."
"Why, then, dues she inn support her
self by her p'ii, she writes well; 1 should
think she might do it easily, and have
plenty of lime left for recreation and exer
cise." "Perhaps you will not think it quite so
easy, when I tell you that for all that she
has written she has never received what
would be a fair compensation, for one
month's work, and while jou are sitting
in your parlor being amused or instructed
by what she has penned, she is struggling
to obtain the means of support for those
who are dearer to her than life."
"Why, then, does she write at all; I
would not if they would not pay me?"
vWhy does the mist rise, or he dew
full9 She writes because she musi; it is
a necessity of her being, and as a compen
sation she is treated with scorn, because
she has not the wealth to sit in idleness,
or the health to endure your genteel em
ployments." . ,
"I must own that you have placed the
subject in an entirely new light, but is
there no danger of woman's losing that
delicacy which constitutes her peculiar
charm, by mingling so freely with - the
common mass with which she must thus
inevitably come in contact?"
"There is a false delicacy which would
be no loss, and the quicker that is swept
sway, the better, but the true delicacy
which springs from purity of heart, will
not suffer. How can there lie more danger
in selling to, than buying of a vicious per
son, and you would think me. very foolish
if I insisted that A lady should not go to
market to select what was needed for the
family, because some who sell there' are
vulgar or vile. If womwn must be kept
from coming in contact with vice or vul
garity, she had better hut herself up
from the world at once; for if the fair lady
wl arrays herself in silks, and goes ont

all women are noi, nnl may never lie wives

"But is there no motive but ambition

further than the great principles of right

"Certainly nm, but such a case would
be an exception."
"Well, 1 think if you will look about
upon all the females who have loved ones
depending upon them forsupport, you will
find a multitude of excepiit us, and if all
the ignorant men and women, and all the

"So we were, and the same principle is
involved here as in the oilier case. I
wishtheie was not an ignorant woman in
the land, but if that were the case, and in
telligent women were allowed to engage
only in the so-called lady-like employ
ments we should be in a sad condition,
truly. Society would be like a person
who wan all head, if we can conceive of
such ai, anomaly."
"Then you would have women buy and
sell, plan, calculate, in short, mingle in all
the rough jostle of lile, the same as man?"
"I would have her to do rhatever she
chooses, if she is qualified for it, and es
pecially it those who are dear as life itself
are dependent on her for support. 1 have
too much confidence in my sex to believe
that they will become coarse and vulgar
merely because they are allowed to choose
their own jsmploymenU, and I believe that
those wbo say that we shall assimilate to
the vices instead of the virtues of man, if
we share his employments, are guilty of a
"Woman has a right to consult her
health and the welfare of those depending
upon her care, if there are such in the
choice of her employment. She has a
right as much as her brother to select for
herself, and they who would stamp her as
indicate or unwomanly, for so doing, are
doing their best to drive her into the vor
tex of pollution, and if she falls not, it will
not be their fault."

summer. Day follows day snd year fol
lows year in quick and rapid succession,
And amidst the turmoil and excitement and
bust s of life we forget now rapidly we are
moving 011 that "journey from . whose
bourne no traveler returns." 1
The summer is past! , What a sad and
instructive lesson does the rapid change
of seasons leave us of our destiny. In the
spring-tide of life our hearts have bent
high with the hope and delightful antici
pations of future years of promise. The
summer's sun may have risen upon us
without a cloud, and its last rays of light
may have been more beautiful than the
first. And when the autumn gather"
around us, testing the hopes of our earlier
yeais, and stamping upon all either disap
pointment- or Eticcess, according as we
have treasured up the talents bestowed
upon us by our Maker. Then comes the
winter of hie, when the loyous hopes of
Doynood are looke'i upon as wild enthus
iasm, and when the judgment matured by
experience, will unite with the wise man
ol Israel in saying, " Yanity of vanities, all
is vanity. , ' , ,
the summer is past, snd 'perhaps with
the writer and reader it has passed forever.

never come aotiti. We may never atrain
see the budding rose and springing flower
of that beautiful " season.' Change' is
stamped-upon air things of this world.
"here to-day and gone to-morrow," and
then all that remains of us is a little hand
ful of earth, an afTectino; comment on our
vanity and folly. Ahfdid we realize and
feel this important truth, how different -
how very different would be the course of
our lives. Did we in the moments of our
temptaiion, when we find our hearts turn
ing towards the thitrirs of this world but re
flect that its enjoyments are as fading as a
dream, how little hould we care for all its
honors. , What to us would be the hom
age of a thousand-what to us the adula
tion of the multitude? , A few rapid roll
ing years, and our heads will lie as low in
the dust as theirs, and "places that now
know us will then know us uo more forev

In Judge L -'s office once was al
ways kepi for private entertainment and
solace, a demijohn ol "o d old Jamaica "
His honor noticed that every Monday
morning it was lighter; a more "absirae
ied John;" than he left it on Saturday
night. Sain was also missing from his
usual seat in the orthodox paternal pew.
The Judge called after him. "Sam,
where have you been?"' -
"To church sir?" ;'.
"What church sir?"-
"Second Methodist, sir."
"Had a good sermoli. Sam?'
"Very powerful, sir; it quite staggered
roe, sir.'" ... -'- '
"Ah, I see," said the Judge, "quite
powerful, eh, Sam?". -.';
The next Sunday the son came home
rather earlier than usual, and apparency
not so much "under the weather." Hi
father hailed him with, "Well Sa'm, been
to the 'Second Methodist,' again to-day?"
-"Yes, sir.!' . -
"Good sermon, my boy?"
"Fact was, father, that I could'nt get

door."' ' ' "-.'!!"'"- '

Sam says, on going to the pffice for his
usual niirit and refreshment, he found the
"John" empty and bearing the following
label: "There will ' be no services here
to-day, this church being closed for re

, ' Cut of -Door Exercise.
There is probably not another people 16
be found, that take so little exercise out of
doors, as those living iu cities and large
towns of the Northern States. This in
door confinement is the direct occasion of
two great evils; impaired health and a de
struction of vivacity. , To , be healthful
and cheerful, much time muet be passed
in sunlight; where oxygen may be inhaled
without stint. : Stay in the house, shop,
store, office, study,, sanctum, or other con
finement, where carbonio acid gas and
other impurities are breathed again and
again, and It would be extraordinary if
such persons always 'maintained" cheerful
spirits, and enjoyed good heslth.
y Among the Germans in fatherland, (and
ii.may oe irue 01 inera Here,; their con
stant cheerfulness and gaiety would be a
marvel to sour and grumbling people, out
of health and out of spirits. Early in the
morning, from four o'clock until ten in the
evening, the thoroughfares in and about
the cities of Germany are thronged with
ibub ana lasses, wending their way to pub
lic gardens and ) other plaoes of resort,
where social pleasures are freely enjoyed,
and the heart made glad and the health
and vigor of the body improvtd and pre
served. When the men and women have finished
their work, or business, they, too, go forth
foi amusement. And what is worthy of
note, the ladies are not afraid of being
browiied by the sun's rays and the health
giving breezes. They will spend hours
in the sun-light, daily, "and do marvel that
any should object to such an airing.
Can any one wonder at the supeiior ro
bustness and cheerlulne8s of the women
of Germany, Italy and other European
countries, over Ihe women of the north
ern cities of our country, after contem
plating the difference in their habits!

yet men need not be deceived. It is be

fear to know themselves. I share this
fear. . Oil a few occasions I have torn
the mask away, and looked on the naked
ness of the heart but I shut my eyes,
and tried to cheat myself into the belief
that there was no devil there. It is not, a
more difficult matter. to know more of our
neighbor than purself, for we do not fear
to siudy him. We read him as an open
book, and althoiigh we cannot pry closejy
in every page, we can peruse the table of
contents, and learn more than he would be
willing to tell. , I thank God for the re
straining influences which he throws
around man for His motions without and
within to keep snd cherish the spirit of
good in. the human heart, that it may riot

Two brothers settled together in

a half dozen rails. This man would never
drive any but large, powerful, Couastoga

put three horses toa largo plow, and
plunged it in some ten inches deep. This
deep ploughiiiif he invariably practised
and cultivated thoroughly afterward. He
raised his seventy bushels of corn to tlie
This man had a brother about six miles
off, settled on a rich White River bottom
land farmand while a black-jack clay
eiil yielded seventy bushels to the acre,
this fine bottom-land would not average
fifty. One brother was sturdily growing
rich on poor land, and the other Bteadily
growing poor on rich land.
Une day the bottom-land brother came

their lands to work, and some men expect

difference between a good farmer and a
When we had written thus far, and read
it lo ouv informant, he said: "Three
years ago I travelled through-that section,
and the only good farm 1 saw was this
very one ol which you Imve just written.
All the others weredesolate; fences down,
cabim abandoned, the ettlers discouraged

.The I-rig til Side.
Look on the bright side. Il is llie right
side. The times may be hard, but it will
make them no easier to wear a gloomy
and sad countenance. It is the sunshine,
and not a cloud, that makes the flower.
There is always that before or around us
which should cheer and till the heart with
warmth. The sky it blue ten limes

it may be. So have otheis. None are fiee

That would be a dull sea, and ihe sailoi

tract all the happiness and enjoyment he
can without and within; and above all,
he should look on the bright side of
things.' What though times do look a lit

night will end in broad day. In the long
run the great balance rights itseif. What
is ill becomes well what is wiong, right.
Men are not made to hang down either
heads or lips, and those who do only show
that ihey are departing from the pnths of
true common sense and right. There is
more virtue in one sunbeam than a whole
hemisphere of clouds and gloom. There

Attempt to Poison a Whole Family-.
The Washington. Fayette Co., O.,
"Register" gives the particulars of a dia
bolical attempt to poison a whole family
Inst week. It appears that Patrick Mc
Coy, living near Washington, had his
bi'oiliei'yiii-htw get a sack of corn meal at
the Rock Mills, and Mrs. McCoy made
soiVie corn bread for dinner, but the hus
band not coming in as early as usual, din
ner was delayed, and one of the children
broke a piece of the bread off and tasted of
it, when he told .his mother it was not
goodit was bitter. The husband and
father, coming in, was advised of the pe
culiar taste, and to try the effects, threw
pieces of the bread to some dogs, who ate
them and in a short time died. A cake
was then baked of meal further down in
the sack and given lo oilier dogs who ate
and died. Still another cakt was baked of
mal from the bottom of the sack, which
had no effect on dogs or on human beings.
Portions of the meal was examined and
found to contain large.qiianiities of strych
nine. Mis.'Mi'Coy openly accused the
bmihers-iii-law, Abr'm Post, nnd B. F.
McCarty, who brought the m?al from the
mill, of mixing in the poison. The affair
created' great excitement and has not yet
Markiagr. I never, says Mrs. Child;!,
saw a marriage expressly fon monejfjt hat
did-not end unhappily. Yet managing
mothers and heartless daughters are con
tinually playing the -same unlucky game.
I believe men more frequently marry for
love than women, because they have a rt
choice. I am, afraid to conjecture how
large a portion of women, marry because
they thipk, they will, never have a better
chance, and, dread becoming dependent.
Such marriages do sometimes prove tol
erably comfortable, but a greater number
would have been far happier single. If I j
may judge by my observation of such
matters, marrying for a home is a most
tiresome way of getting a living.
