How Women Fail as Workers.
That clever ami kindly OKI B;ich
dor who discussed Bocial qucfilious
with such genial wisdom in the paics
of Jfarjtr Jiiizttr, tells the follow-
ng btory to illustrate the reason why
women tto mil usually prosper as
wt-U as men in some of the profess
ions for which they would sceui to
he quite as well adapted:
II seemed to me that women might
specially succccil as wood en
gravers, so I went lo one or tue iuott
xnerieiu ed and successful engravers
a the city and consulted with linn.
"Don't you see the tr.lliciilty r he
asked, with great kindness and iu-
-Ni!'' citid I ; yiu must Instruct
"Well," answered he, 'I have cui
lIo ed women hero very often, and I
wish I could feel more encouraged,
but the truth is, that when a young
man comes to me and 1cgins his
work, he feels that it his life busi
ness, how to cut his future out ol the
little Mocks before him. Wirs, fam
ily, hwuic, htiiincaat are all to be
l'V liin liuml. ami lie acttlcs
steadily and earnestly to his labor,
(letermiiied to master it and with
every incitement spurring liini on.
lie cannot marry until he knows his
trade. It is exactly the other way
with the girl. She may be as poor
as the youth, and as wholly depend
ent upon her labor for her living. But
she feels that she will probably be
married by and by, and then sho
must give up wood engraving. So
she goes on listlessly; she has no
ambition to excel ; she does not feel
that her happiness depends upon it
She will marry, and then her hus
band's wages will support her. She
may not say so," said the engraver,
'but she thinks bo, and it spoils Lcr
The same is true with regard to
many employments in which women
have been engaged. We know that
as clerks at Washington they arc far
less uselul than ineu. Their habits
of work are much less accurate, and
they do not give their minds to th:ir
duties with the same conscientious,
ness and fidelity. The reason is the
same as that given by our old bach
elor. They do not feel that these
duties are the business of their lives,
and that their whole success or fail
ure depends upon the manner in
.which they arc performed. Whatev
er they do, love, matrimony, and the
care of a house of their own, arc al
ways at tho bottom of their thoughts.
The Empty Cradle.
There is a whole volume of poetry
in the following sketch, which wc
find in the last. number of Miss Bar

Wc met John on the stairs, lie
at .a S
was carrying an old cranio to oe
stowed away among what he termed

rocker was gone, and the wioker
work ol the sides broken; it was an
old willowy affair, but we could not
rerrain from casting a sau iook into
its empty depths.

A Dream Remarkably Fulfilled.
liev. L. W. Lewis is now publish
ing, in tha lexas Christiau Advocate
his reminiscences of tha War, and
gives this remarkable instance of the
fulfillment of a dream :
A man by the name of Joe Wil
liams had told a dream to many of
his fellow-soldiers, some of whom
related it to me, months previous to
the occurrence, which 1 now relate:
He dreamed that we crossed a river.
marched over a mountain and camp
ed near a church, located in a wood,
near which a terrible battle ensued.
and in a charge just as we crossed
the ravine he was shot in the breast
On tbe ever-memorable 7th of De
cember, 1802, as we moved at doa
ble quick to take our place in the line
of battle, then already hotly engag
ed, we passed Prairie Grove Church,
small frame building belonging to
the Cumberland Presbyterians. I
was riding on the flank of the com
mand, and opposite to Williams, as
wo came in view of the house.
That is the church, Colonel ; I saw
in my dream,'' said he. I made
no reply, and never thought of the
matter again until in tbe evening,
when we ha1 broken the enemy's
line, and were in full pursuit, when
we came upon a. dry ravine in the
wood, and Williams said : " J ust on
the other .side of the hollow I was
shot in my dream, and I will stick
my hat under my shirt.' Suiting the
action to the word, as be ran along,
he doubled it up, and crammed it in
to his bosom. Scarcely had he ad
justed it before a minle ball knock
ed him out of line. :, Jumping up
quickly, he pulled out his hat, waved
it over his head, and shouted, "I m
all right !" The ball had gone thro
foar thicknesses of his hat, and rais
ed a black spot, about the size of a
man's hand, just over his heart, and
dropped in his shoe.
Tho Japanese are emphatically a
race of paper-makers and paper
users. It enters into all their trade
calculations, and is exhaustive of more
of their ingenious art than any other
ono article. When a collection of the
ditTerent kinds of paper was made to
send to the London Kxhibition ol
DM2, no less than sixty-seven kinds
were forwarded. It is made to sub
serve the purposes of the useful as
well as the ornamental. Everywhere
may be seen paper fans, paper um
brellas, paper pouches, paper pocket
handkerchiefs, cloaks and windows.
The paper strings used by storekeep
ers, so lately introduced here, have
been used by the Chinese for centu
ries. A short time ago au inventor
applied for a patent on a paper hat,
and a revolution in tries was promised.
But the invention was little more than
a theft from our antipodes, for the
Japanese wore bats or paper before
Columbus aw tho West Indies. We
now hear every day of the paper lath
or ceiling; but in Japan they have
used paper walls from time immemo
rial. Paper among the Japanese is
not only an article or trade, but a
medium of exchange. Among the
wealthy a certain quantity of paper
is required to constitute a marriage
portion. ' They manufacture paper
irom the bark of a certain .tree, but
not like us from rags. The prepara
tion of it is a curious process, and
requires much longer time than we
employ iu its manufacture.
Japanese Paper. A Midnight Ride on a Cow-Catcher.
"A writer in the Oneida Circnlar
describes a singular adventure :-.
The train was to start at 11:45 end
it wanted but a few minutes of the
time. As I stood there in the dark
ness within a few feet of the hissing
monster, my heart began to fail me,
and I almost resolved to abamloa
my hazardous undertaking
What if 1 should lose my hold and
be thrown otf in front of that crush
inz mass of machinery? What if
there should be something on the
track? Such thoughts kept whirl
ing through my mind, and 1 hesita
ted. Suddenly the bell rang. Hard
ly realizing what I did, I hastily left
the dark recess and stepped on the
heavy framework in front of the
engine. Iy means of a stout leather
strap! hound myself on by passing
it round my body and under one ol
the strong bars of the cow-catcher.
While I was thus engaged the train
had left the depot and with rapidly
increasing speed was passing through
the city. . I had some fears lest
some of the flag men at the street
crossing should discover ma and sig
nal to the engineer; for I well knew
that if II. should lccomc aware of
my perilous situation ho would stop
the train and take mc oiT. - My fears
were groundless. The stroug glare
of the headlight directly over me
made my position, by contrast, al
most invisible to any one in front.
Passing the last crossing with a
roar, we sped on through the sui
nrbs and into the open country. The
eity lights disappeared one by one
in the distance-and we were fairly on

were duven before a strong wiud

an opening would illumine the land

light, to lie immediately followed by
almost total darkness as tho heavy
cumuli rolled up in masses of inky
blackness. The cone of light from
the dazzling lens above me would
then cut tho darkness on its onward
rush with startling clearness. Now

At best I had but a partial foothold,
and the constant jar of the engiue
on tho short curves would almost
throw me otr. In passing tlirougli
the S. mountains the road was very
rough and crooked. The ponderous
engine bounded along with now and
then a sudden side lurch in its seem
ingly mad ellrt to plunge into the
black chasms which yawned on every
side. In oue ol these sudden move
ments the buckle of my strap broke,
and I was only saved from instant
death by wedging my bands between
the bars of the cow-catcher and clasp
ing them underneath. I must hold
on now for dear life. Once I opened
my mouth to scream, Iu the hope

standing on the 'foot board' it was

stilfening fingers would hold on for

me that we had cone two-third4 of

The Crime of Loyalty.
The Chattanooga correspondent of
the New York Tones has the follow
ing statement of the outrages com
mitted on the-Ioyal men of Tennessee:
More than two hundred and fifty
persons have within the last three
weeks sworn before a committee of
tho Tennessee Legislature, that they
and other Republicans white and
black have been subjected to the
most shameful outrages; that they
have been whipped, and their neigh
bors outraged, and in some cases
murdered ; and that some of them
had had their fat roastad t firoe t
make them reveal the hiding-places
of other Unionists ; that women had
been whipped on suspicion of having
told who Kuklux were, and others
murdered for not revealing the hiding
places of their husbands; that in
portions of West and Middle Tenn
essee there has been no safety for Re
publicans, and that since tho New
York Convention there has been an
increase of bitterness against South
ern loyalist, and an increased confi
dence of ex rebels that they would
yet attain all the objects sought by
rebellion and secession. This testi
liinouy given before the Committee
the Legislature, was presented just
about the lime when twenty ex rebel
thTocuerals were telling the State Legis
lature that tliey could preserve uia
