The Dying Girl.
I am soon to leave you, mother,
Soon to pass the golden door;
Soon to view the world hoyond us,
"hereto dwell forever more.
' ? s. . v ? ? t si ?'?
J)o not look so sml, dear mother,
l'W it fills my heart with woe;
'I'liere will he nopain in heaven,
And 1 really want logo.
Angels there will hid me welcome,
And they are waiting now for 11U?,
For they know (hat I am coming?
Death will setrltt'y spirit tree.
You are weeping mother, dearest,
Weeping all 1110 white in vain;
Pai ting is not forever,
\V? shall surely meet again.
Then the azure eyes grewdithmer,
Lower sank the curly head,
With a smile that was angelic,
And (he budding rose was dead.
One-half of the evil-speaking of the
world arises, not from nut/ice jirepens?;
hut from mere want of amusement.
And we may even grant that in the
oilier halt", constituted small of mind
or selfish in disposition, it is seldom
worse than the natural falling back
from largo abstract interests, which
they cannot under.-land, upon those
which they can?alas! only tho nar
row, commonplace, and personal.
Yet they mean no harm; are ofteu
undo;- the delusion that they bath
mean and do apical deal ol good,
take a benevolent watch over their
fellow creatures, ami so forth. They
would not say an untrue word, or do
tin unkind action?not they! The
most barefaced slanderer always tells
her story with a good motive, or
thin'/.S- the docs; begins with u harm
less "bit of gossip," just to pass the
time away? :lie time which hangs so
heavy ! ami ends by becoming the
most arrant ami mischievous tale
bearer under the sun.
Men, whose habits of ihchght and
action arc at once more selfish ami
less personal than women's, are very
seldom given to gossiping. They will
sake a vast interest in the inisgovcrn
mcht of the country, or tho ill cook
ing of their own dinners; but, any
topic b twixt these two?sueh as the
mismanagement of their neighbor's
house, or the extravagance of their
partner's; wi e?is a matter of very
minor ^importance. They ' cauna he
fashed" with trifles that don't im
mediately concern themselves. It is
the women?always the women?who
poke about with undefended farthing
candles in t he choke-damp passages of
this dangerous world; who put their
feeble, ignorant hands to the Archi
medean lever that, slight as it seems,
can shake society to its lowest founda
i Mm lie willfully, deliberately, on
principle, as it were; hut women quite
involuntarily*. Nay, they would
start with horror from the hare
thought of suuli a thing. They love
truth in their hearts, and yet?and
yet?they are constantly giving to
things u slight coloring east, by their
own' individuality; twisting facts a
little, a very little, according as their
tastes, a flections, or convenience
indicate; never, perhaps, telling a dir
ect lie, but merely a deformed or
prcv ?i icateil truth.
And this makes the fatal danger
of gossip. If all people spoke the
absolute lruth about their neighbors,
or held their tongues, which is always
a possible alternative, it would not so
much matter. At the worst, there
would be a few periodical social
thunderstorms, ami then the air would
bo clear. J3ut the generality of
people do not speak the truth. They
speak what they sec, or think, or be
lieve, or wish. Few ohiurvant char
acters can have lived long in the
[world without learning to receive
every fact communicated scond hand
with reservation*?reservations that do
not necessarily stamp the communi
cator as a liar, but merely make al
lowance for certain inevitable vuria
tions, like the variations of tho com
pass, which every circumnavigator
must calculate upon as a natural

to kiss her.
A Fisherman's Wedding;
Along a certain portion of tho coast
of Scotland,., when a young couple
agree to get married, the nearest rela
tions of both parties meet to i'aiify
the contract. This is an occurrence
of great rejoicing. Tho women ap
pear in full toilet, and a sort of least
is-Uropa red. The marriage ceremony
is usually performed by the clergy
man of the dieltict at the residence of
the, bride. After the religious rites
arc concluded, a contract is signed
by both parties amidst a cloud of wit
nesses. Tlio bridegroom wears his
Sunday suit, and the lady is adorned
with the conventional veil.
The marriages of these people lake
place, almost without exception, on
[ Kriday, and the celebrations att end
ing the event continue until the dawn
of the Sabbath puts an end to further
I hilarity. On the first night of tho
dancing the women are attired in
white musUn gowns, with their necks
I and arms exposed, the latter adorned
with any quantity of glass beads and
I ornaments. Tue nun are in their
shirt sleeves, with gorgeous blue
waists, ornamented with brass buttons,
and wearing every qtiriofy of hat and
cap. Their throats arc mufiled with
enormous neck-handkerchiefs, which
they persist in wearing in spite of the
heat. Who the entire night lias been
passed in dancing, ami daylight ap
pears, a rush is made through the
town to the future home of the newly
married couple. The musician, tirnied
with I.is fiddle or bagpipe, as the case
ma)' be, leads the procession, the
bride and groom come next, ami the
rest of the party follow on behind.
Scni'and abound.-; in singular mar
riage customs. (>ne of the most re
markablcis called '?creeling the bride
groom." In some counties on the day
after the wedding, while the marriage
feast still continues, the bridegroom
had a breol, or basket, filled with
stones firmly fastened upon Iiis back.
With this iiicumbranco he was com
pelled to run about the neighborhood
followed by hw friends, who would
not allow him to remove it until his
wi e came after him mid either kissfcu
him or u?fastened the creel. It some
limes happened that, as relief depend
ed upon her, he bad not to run very
far; hilt if the lady was either very
bashful or very sportive he had to
carry his load a considerable distance.
The custom was very strictly enforced,
for the friends who was last creeled
hail charge of the ceremony, and he
was mil in all)-* anxious that the new
bridegroom should not escape.
It Was He.
A man forty yours old, and us long
as a rail, went into one of the hanks
of Detroit to get the cash on a
thirteeh-dollar cheek, drawn by u

"You will have to be identified,''
said the cashier, as he looked at the
"Tin the man," was the tcply.
"Jlnt 1 don't know who you are."
"UuL 1 do."
"You must bring .some one here
who knows you."
"Don't 1 know myself?" exclaimed
the check tenderer;
?*lint I must know you. You may
be Tom Jones for all that 1 know."
"You must be a consumed find to
think I'm some one else ?" growled the
man in response.
"You in list be identified," observed
"That's my name, I tell ye, and
this is me, and if this bank gels me
riled I'll lick the whole crowd of you
over behind the railing !"
The cluishicr wouldn't pay, and the
man couldn't find any one w ho knew
him, and at noon he was waiting "for

How much butler it is to always

Nothing bcctfme? a young girl so
well na modest \vnys. It is so.tiiortily
ing to mothers to know that their
daughter? net rude!}' when away from
home. They wonder at it. 'J'Iioy uro
iuuiilly good enough and lady-like at
home; hut the moment they are out of
their sight, on* the street or on the
way to elturch, and perhaps in church,
even, loud laughing and tulkiiigjic
comc the ride. Docs it ever occur to
those mothers -to give their girls a
gentle warning? on leaving the par
ental root',' as ? to their manners and
Hiiys one : ''I do not like to be al
ways .scoldingi I talk to my daugh
ters once in a while, and I expect
that to suffice*' But mother, if you
had a choice plant, o ypbng trco that
you wished to bring to perfection,
would you expect it to become perfect
with only an ^occasional trimming?
No?you would be apt to watch it
with great care, trimming it a little,
every week oj- every day, to see that
ii o unruly branches put fut'lli to intu
its beaaty. So it is with youth ; little
by little is the character formed that,
is to govern tl)c after life.
I do not believe in a rough-and
ready scolding. .Scolding, as u rule,
has not much force. If one has to
irivo a stern rebuke, let it be in as few
words as possible. Yet I think, if
parents take ssccond thought, that a
mild reproof in most cases would ans
wi-t best. Young people just coming
to maturity have naturally free and
impulsive, ways. One can excuse
rudeness in boys, for it seems a natur
al prerogative'- of their nature, but a
wild, romping or bold girl is a con
ti nun] source., of anxiety to a mother
and genor.?lf-#distasteful to society;
hence, mothers cannot be too careful
of the manners of their daughters.
Just Wait.?"Young ladies have
the privilege of saying anything they
please during leap year," she said, eye
ing hi in out of the corner of her eye
with a sweet look.
His heart gave a great bound, nnd
w hile he wondered if she was going to
ask the question he bad so long desr
ed and feared to do, answered :
"And the young nien must not re
fuse," said site.
"No, no. How could they?"
"Well, then," said she, "will you*'?
lie fell on his knees, and said
"Anything you ask, darling."
"Wait till I get through. Will
you take a walk, sind not conic here
so much ?"
Iilncss prevented Miss Adelaide
Xcilsou from appearing at a London
theater the other evening, and with
much fear ami trembling the manager
permitted a young American girl,
just finishing her studies for the stage,
to take her part* .She did it so well
that the Londoners like her nearly ns
well as Ncilson.
An old lady living in Saugerltes,

inflammation arose, gangrene set in,
and death followed.
