The&othohilds and Astors
It is soimwlnit curious that the

minis, born iilliin eighty tulles of
each other thu one, Uothchild, at
Fiiiiikloi-1-oMhe-Muln ; the other,
Astor, at Waldorf, a hiiiiiII village
near llcldelzierg, in the Utichy ol
linden. Twtpty-flve years ago the
late barou Jtincs de Kothchild said
lu an Amcriitn gentleman. Mill alive,
and now in this city, that ho believed
the Astor fortune to be the largest

Savings for Old Age.
No one denies that it is wise to
make provision for old age, but w e
are not all agreed as to tho kind of
provision it is best to lay In., Cer
tainly we shall want a little money,
lor a destitute old man is iiiueca a
sorry sight ; yes, save money by all
means. But an old man needs just
that particular kind ol strength which
young men are tnosi apt to waste.
Many a foolish young fellow will
throw away on a holiday a certain
amount of nervous euorgy which he
will never leol the want ot until lie is
70, and thon how much he will want
it I It is curious, but true, that a bot
tle of champaign at 20 will Intensify
the rheumatism at three-score. . It is
fact that overtasking the eyes at four
teen necessitates the aid of specta
cles at 40 instead of 60. We advise
our young realtors to be saving of
health ror llietroiil age, tor the max
im holds good In regard to health as
to money "waste not want not." It
is the greatest mistake to suppose
that violation of the laws of health
can escape its penalty. Nature for
gives no sin, no error; she Ids off
the offonder for fifty years sometimes,
but she catches him at last, and in
flicts the punishment just when, just
where and just how he feels It most.
Save tip for old age, but save knowl
edge; save the recollection of good
and noble deeds, innocent pleasure
and pure thoughts; save friends; save
love. Save rich stores of thai kind
of wealth which cauuot diminish or
death take awny. -
, ' The Lady of Culture, '
From lolla'a Illuslt atoU Ncwpitr.
Tho first elomciit of a true culture
is utility. The homoly uses of life ure
the strong body, without which ao
complishmonts have nothing to adorn
but themselves, and are thrown
away. lu tlio swltt fluctuations of
business, and tho terrible reverses
which so often sweep aw ay the bust
founded fortune;, none are sate. k It
Is folly for any family lo roar a girl
in the lap of indulgence lor a lite or
luxury, when a single wave of mis'
fortune may sweep the castle bonull
ful away and leave its inmates al tha
mercy of the pitiloss elements. Eve.
ry girl should be so educated Mini,
should adversity throw her upon tho
world, she will fall, like a cat, on her
feel, ready for a run on her own ao
count. . A lady of culture Is one who
can use ho." knowledge and accom
plishments for her own support in
case of need, and docs not fool that
any useful industry is demeaning.
The practical must precede and sup
port tho ornamental, and even tho or
namental should be so thoroughly in
grained that it can be made of use in
case of need. Tho worst evils of
modern society will not be got rid of
till every woman is able to earn an
hopost livelihood, and respects every
oilier woman who earns one, . wheth
er s ho is a "lady of culture," or not.

Prayer to' lie effectual must he ac
companied by faith in him who prays.
Prayer is only the form of asking.
When children want anything of their
parents they pray for it tint is, thoy
ask for it. The kind and considerate
parent hears the prayer of his child,
though he may not answer it at once or
he not give the tiling prayed for, but
lie gives something c-W instead. '1" lie
child ofUod, believing in His promis
es, asks Him for what lie feels he
needs, If the Heavenly Parent sees
that what ia'askcjl for is not best for
his child he does not grant it; hut he
lroks down in heavenly compassion
and blesses the faithful petitioner by
making his cup run over with joy and
gladness. Prayer makes ns acquaint
ed with God just as the child gets bet
ter acquainted with its parent by con
tinually making known its wants to
him. We have numerous examples of
the power of prayer given as in the
Bible. Paul and Silas prayed and
ssng praises when confined in prison
and the prison doors were opened and
their fetters loosened and the jailer
came trembling, and he sought them
to tell him'what he must do to be
saved. An nngel went into the pris
on to Peter and smote off hi chains
and led him out to liberty ami life in
answer to a prayer.. But prayer is
not only to be used in time ef great
trouble or danger; the man who would
save hisi soul must be found duilv

Editor South Kcntncliun:
Washinoton, D. C. February. 16.
Considerable flutter is occasioned
by tlio direction the cipher disputcli
investigation has taken, and that
which ha come out is only jnst enough
to show what magnificent rascality
would have been 'developed hail not
ti e Republican dispatches been stolen
and destroyed,. .Morton, Chandler'
and tho-other nxtnle and unscrupulous
mauipui dors were certainly lucky in
having for President of telegraph com
pany a mnn who sympathised witii
them politically, and who was not too
good to assist tlieut- in destroying the
evidences of what tiicy hud done.
And so, as it is, we have only the
proof that the Republican ciphers
were mure numerous than those charg
ed to tho Democrats; that th.'V wete
so bud ns to justify a theft which was
committed by one Bullock in Morton's
employ, and third assistant PustmnsW.
er General Brady also a peatcge of the
Indiana beiiutor. live doors ot the
committee room were locked, and only
such choice spirits as m. h. Chan-
d or an I ex-Congi'css:nan Ev.ms ad
mitted. . There the dispatch 's were
assorted, and all that could dam ige
tlio Republicans burned, while certain
Democratic messages were secretly
kept by Brady, and finally sent au
nonymoiiHly to the Now York Tri unr.
It i.i asserted that the burned cones
pondenco wjuld ha e shown that li . e
hmidre I thoiisiml dollars were raised
in New York and scut to Florida and
Luuisiana to keep the courage of the
returning boards up to their villianous
work. But the most duungitig thing
the investigation lias bi ought out is
the telegraphic coriespouduiice , be
tween Zach Ciunller, Secretary ol
the Interior, mid J. N. Tyner, then
Postmaster General, relative to the
sale of t.vo oflices tinier Chandler for
85,000. It is proven by these wit
nesses that the telegraphs per'ecting
such a transaction wove pissed, and
that the disptitclies were returned to
.Mr. Tyner at his urgent solicitation,
when the talk of investigation first
began. '.This brings down two cabi
net officers badly wounded. And yet
Senator Cliristiancy has resigned liis
Senutorship, to take an iuKigitihVuiit

The Senatorial elections that have so
recently occurred, put some, well
known stock in that body after Murclr
4i.ii, but with a siuglu exception, they
lo not aild an ounce ol brains or reflect
any credit. Tho exception is in favor
of YY iHConsiii, where the exchange ol
Carpenter lor Howe is certainly an
improvement. The latter has been
in the Senate eighteen years and leaves
it on the 4th oi Maich bo years of ago
without a dollar in the world. . His
defeat is claimed as an administra
tion triumph, his severe speech of last
winter having arrayed h'.m on the side
of the stalwarts. Carpenter is a goud
deal ofu fuvorito in Washington. He
has no superior in either House as a
lawyor and au orator, is witty, logical
and brilliant. Yet with all that ho is
indolent and a man of too many per
I ho election of Logan over Oglcsby
in. Illinois is not such a groat change,
though it is for the worse. They are
much the same . typo, and much the

cases is better htteit lor irigiiteiiing

passionate argument on tho floor ot
the Senate. The greatest difference
between them is that ono is believed
to be honest, while the other repre
sents course ignorance, cupidity, and
the whiskey ring clunont. One man
in the Sennto will sadl regret the
change, and that is Senate r Booth of
Calilornia, who is the running mate
of Oglcsby. They drink their wins-
key straight together, willc together,
attend theatre togoth r, and for all 1
know sleep together,. Strange fancies
and Iriendsliips spring up among ben
ators as in other walks of life. Care
less lookerli on, or readers ot. tho rec
ords of Congress, generally suppose
from the dobates that a deadly nni
mosity exists between Senators of dif
ferent parties. But thin a mistake.
The Senuto is a happy family. There
are but two in tho body who arm at
outs Coiikling and Blaine. All the
other old gentlemen are as friendly

the utmost corners of the chamber.
Then he walks slowly out st tho door
to his left. At this Senator Edmunds
awakens, and slowly saunters out at
the door on his right. The two meet

That old veteran Genoral Shields,
now occupies a seat in the Senate,
though his term only lasts1 till March

ha been Senator flora three States
Minnesota, Illinois, and Missouri. In
a recent interview he related some ja
teresiing incidents of Jiis' association

were both elected to the legislature at
the same .time, and JchummoJ and
roomed together. Later they wore at
the same time Auditor and Secretary

both on tho Supremo Bei ch. Then
both were sent to Washington, all

Results of Easy Divorce In
London Times Lector.
The people in Switzerland, who
possess so great il variety of politi
cal institutions, ami linvo tried so
many experiments in social economy,
sanctioned, so many years ngu, the
introduction oi' what is virtually un
limited facility ol divorce. Dissolu
tion ol matrimony is decreed lor the
must trivial of causes. Tho result or
this stale of things, as disclosed in a
return just issued by the federal
Statistical Bureau, is ralhar curious
than satisfactory, nud does not speak
well for the effect of the experiment
on the domestic happiness ol the
Swiss people. The figures set forlli
in the report in question refer to
1877. In that year the various courts
of tho Confederation decreed 1,030
dissolutions of matrimony, nud l'.U
I em porn ry separations, being nt llie
rnto or 4-74 for every 100 marriages,
whilo IhOT'e per cent in tho Oram!
D noli v of linden is only 0.14. in Wurt-
etubiirg 1.71, and in Saxony 2.1!)
The proportion varies greatly in the
different cantons, mid, as might lie
expected, is lower in Roman Catholic
than in Protestant districts. ' In Uri.
Oborwalden, and Unterwaldcr di
vorccs seem to be unknown, the rate
per cent in these cantons being ex
pressed bv a cipher. In Vnlais ll is
0.33," Sell wiz 1.05, Liicerno 1.59,
Freiburg 1.64, and Zug 2 07 ; while in
Glnris It raises lo 7.32, in Zurich lo
7.08. In Berne to 4.07, and in Geneva
to 5.52 per cent. It is a curious fact
and one Hint may be useful to some
future Buckle that divorced people
marry more readily than celibate.-,
the case being In the propor
tion of about two of Iho former
to ono of the latter; that two wid
ows or widowers are married for one
divorced person, and four for one cel
ibate. Of 1,000 celibates of Hie age or
30, 99 marry ; or 1,000 divorced men,
240 marry ;'and ot 1,000 widows 4.10
marry a second time. This is the ex
perionce or Switzerland, and from it
is drawn the conclusion that, despite
the great number of divorce cases in
this country, marringo is a happier
stato than single-blessedness, inas
much as those who have tried it once,
even though they may have under
gone the pleasant experience ot a suit
for dissolution of matrlinuiiy,- arc
anxious to try it again.
