SOUTHERN STANDARD-MMINNVILLK. TENNESSEE. SATURDAY, FEB.2I(i89i.
Monty borrowed is a (oe;
Veiled in kindly seeming;
Money wasted is a friend
Lost beyond redeeming.
Hoarded, it is like a guest
Wou with anxious seeking,
Giving nothing for his board,
Save the care of keeping.
Bpent in good, it leaves a joy
Twice its worth behind it;
And who thus hath lost it here,
Shall hereafter find it.
Among remarkable public clocks,
there are two which stand foremost
those of Lyons and Strasburg. They
are well worth attention, partly on
account of their curious workman
ship and partly because of their rich
ness of ornament and originality of
design. In the former, two horse
men, fully armed cap-a-pie, encoun
ter in a deadly combat, as it were,
and beat the hour upon each
other's armor. . Then a door
opens, and an Image of the Virgin,
bearing in her arms the child Jesus,
steps out. She in turn is followed by
tho magi, with letinue marching "all
in good order," presenting their gifts,
heralded by trumpets, which contin
ue to breathe from their brazen
throats while the procession is in
The scene which the Strasburg
clock presents is as follows: At each
hour,as the clock strike.there is a cock
which claps its wings; a door opens,
and an angelic appears, who salutes
the Virgin; then the Holy Spirit in
the form of a dove descends and
alights upon the shoulder of the Vir
gin. ' About sixty-five years ago the
East India Company presented the
Emperor of China with two time
pieces manufactured by English
artists. They were or tho finest
workmanship that was ever execut
ed, and were of similar design. Each
was in the form of a chariot, which
was of solid gold. A lady is seated
in a' languishing attitude, leaning
her right hand on that side of the
chariot. In the center of the same
is set the clock itself, with its face
outward, and which is no larger than
a quarter of a dollar. It strikes, and
, repeats, and, upon being wound up,
eroes for eisrht days. A bird, which
is almost completely made up of dia
monds and rubies, rests upon the
ladv's flnerer.' At strikinc-time it
flutters its wings for several minutes.
It is something less than the sixteenth
nart of an inch from the tip of its
bill to the extremity of the tail. In
side its body are contained some of
the works which animate it. In her
iett hand the lady holds a golden
' tufle, which is little thicker than a
large pin, and upon the top of which
is fixed a small round ornament, of
the size of a ten-cent piece. As long
as the clock continues to go this or
nament moves round with a regular
perpetual motion. The top of the or
nament is studded thickly with prec
ious stones as is the whole chariot
Above the fair occupant's head is a
sort of canopy, under which is placed
To the Inquisite eye the bell reveals
no apparent connection with the
clock, save as an ornament. But
there is a secret communication be
tween the two. At the hour, from
under the shade of the canopy there
descends a hammer, which strikes
smartly and sharply against the mel
low-sounding bell. This performance
can be repeated at pleasure simply by
touching a catch in the form of
minute diamond button. The chariot
can be set in motion by the touching
of a spring, and will'run in either
circular or a straight direction. As
it moves,.there are two birds which
appear as if flying in the air. It needs
a close glance to discover that they
are attached by wires, pliable and
strong, yet no thicker than a hair, to
the canopy of the chariot. The clock
together with its carriage-rest, its fur
niture and appointments, is a wonder
of compactness, as it is a marvel oi
dazzling brilliancy and costliness.
Courting One's Wife.
New York World.
There is too little courting done in
The average young man acquits
himself fairly in this respect. He
goes to see his best girl with becom
ing frequency, and when with her
manages to lavish a sufficient amount
of tender and deferential considers
tion upon her to satisfy her natural
and praiseworthy demands for that
sort of thin". The young man must
tand acquitted, therefore.
But tho married, and especially the
middle-aged married man, is usually
verv derelict. He docs no courting
at all, though he U under special oh-
igationa to do a deal of it, very per
sistently, lie has pledged himself in
marriage to make one sweetheart
tiappy, and he knows perfectly that
the easential condition of every good
woman's happiness in that the essen
tial condition of every good woman's
happiness is that she shall he courted
with a good deal of regularity.
The married man does not mean to
neglect his duty. He cherishes the
wife of his youth with a tenderness
far deeper than any he felt for her in
the salad days of their wooing. But
he is busy, preoccupied, comfortable,
and he feels a calm assurance and
satisfaction in her affection, which he
expects her to feel in her turn. He
takes these things for granted in his
man's way, and expects his wife to
take them for granted, too, forgetting
that that is not tho woman's way.
The best thing a married man can
do is to court his wife, to treat her
with all the attentiveness of courtesy
which he showed her before mar
riage, to consider her in small things
a9 he does in large ones, to minister
n a thousand little, scarcely notice
able ways, to her woman nature. So
shall he make her happy, which, if
he be at all a well constituted man,
s what he most wants to do.

o Make a Home Out of a Household.
Hospitality and the giving of cere
monial entertainments are by no
means synonymous. A dinner party
is no essential element in that easy
and gracious hospitality which is the
highest charm of the the home life
The ornaments of a home arc the
friends who frequent it," said Emer
son. The pleasure ot social inter
course is so largely in the unforeseen
dropping in of a friend on those oc
casions when one does not provide
entertainment, but merely shares the
resources of the hour, whatever they
may chance to be. It is not so much
what we offer a guest, as the spirit in
which is offered. The dinner "where
ove is," however simple it may be,
is proverbially better than stalled
ox served with inward reluctance.
For the easy hospitalities of the coun
try, the five o'clock tea in the city
serves admirably, and the custom is
too near meeting a demand of sincere
life to be ever wholly banished by
any caprice of fashion. '1 he best we
can give a friend is thp sweet intiraa
cy of home life, the ready welcome,
the response of sympathy and inter
est. This is that true hospitality, fof

The Arabs have a fable that shows
how an evil habit grows and gains on
one till at last it destroys him. When
the Arab is traveling across the desert
he pitches a little tent for himself, to
keep out the cold for often the nights
are chilly and ties his, camel just
outside. And this is the fable thev
"One cold night a camel, thus pas
tured by a fong tether, thrust his
nose into his master's tent, and said
'It is cold ; let me put my nose with
in the tent,' and the indulgent mas
ter consented. Then the camel said
It grows colder ; let me thrust in my
whole head?' Growing presumptous
he at length pushed in the whole of
his crooked neck, and finally the en
tire bulk of his uncouth body. And
when the master, remonstrating
said, 'There is not room enough for
me and thee,' the camel replied: 'It
is verily so ; you may go out of the
tent I shall remain.' "
This fable is for us all, young anc
old. It shows how, if we indulge in
any evi! habit, it grows and grows,
and consumes more, of our time am

Public profanity is exceedingly de
grading and Indecent. No gentleman
will be guilty of using profane lan
guage on the street, In a public eon-
eyance, or other public place. If
this statement is true, there are mul
titudes of persons moving about in
public places who are not gentlemen.
t is gratifying to note the fact that
more attention Is being paid to this
evil than formerly. Profanity mayap-
pear to many to be alarmingly com
mon, but vast Improvement has been
made in society in this respect. In
nearly all the States of the Union
there are civil statutes which make
it an offense punishable by fine or
mprisonment, or both. It is true
these laws are not generally enforced,
but they are not repealed for the reai
son that they express the sentiment
of the better class in every communi
ty, and they are left to stand as a wit
ness against ft practice which is de
moralizing, indecent, and injurious
The Mayor of an important city in
'ennsylvania has determined to do
what he can to put a stop to the pub
ic use of profane language by order
ng the police to arrest every person
who offends in this particular within
the city limits. A great outcry will,
ofcouse.be made against this proceed-
ng. It will be characterized as an at
tempt to improve the manners of
men by force, to make men religious
by executive power. A Philadelphia
paper, commenting on this effort of
the Mayor, refers to the oaths which
Shakespeare put into the mouths of
some of his characters, and the fact
that George Washington sometimes
used such language with great effect.
We do not live in the time of Shake-
eare or Washington. Froude tells
utf that Queen Elizabeth was accus
tomed to interlard her conversation
with the most shocking profanity,
especially when speaking on affairs
)f State with great politicians; but
ronably no womurv ot prominence
n England or America could be
found so wanting in good taste and
moral sense as to indulge in such lan
guage under similar circumstances
now, and such coarseness and vulgar
ty in connection with official busi
ness are rare even among men in our
The prevalence of profanity even
among the higher classes in England
at the beginning of the century is re
ferred to by Robert Mackenzie in his
book, entitled The Nineteenth Cen
tury. "Profane swearing," says he,
"was the constant practice of gentle
men. Ladies swore orally and in
their letters. Lord Baxford offered
to a lady at whom he swore, because
she played badly at wnist, the suffic
lent apology that he had mistaken
her for his wife. Erskine, the model
forensic orator, swore at the bar.
Lord Thurlow swore upon the bench.
The kiHg swore incessantly. Society
clothed itself with cursing as with
garment." It is a gratifying fact that
this general coarseness of manners
has given place to conversation far
more refined, chaste, and elevated.
But it is not merely a question of
manners. iew, perhaps, are aware
that speaking lightly and profanely
of Almighty God or of the Holy
Scriptures is an offense against the
law of the State. These laws have
deep significance. Those who
enacted them believed that respect
for the Creator and for His revelation
was essential to good society. The
oath which is-employed in all our
Courts and in the induction of public
officers into their positions .as the
chief means of eliciting the truth
from witnesses, and securing justice
and righteousness in administration
is based on the supposition that men
fear God. Without this the oath is
worse than useless,

A HOME-MADE LOUNGE.
now to Produce Very Comfortable One
at Small Expense.
There is nothing more comfortable and
desirable as an adjunct to the furniture of
the living-room, the dining-room or The
sleeping-room than a lounge. A sofa is
quite a different piece of furniture. It
is a show-piece, which onlv appears
properly on dress parade in the parlor;
but a lounge, on which people aro in
tended to rest rather than sit up'prlmlv,
is not out of place anywhere. It is fash
ionable to add this "go easy" Turkish
piece of furniture with its soft uphol
stery and multitudinous down pillows to
the parlor furniture; its broad seat is
such a comfortable placo to sit on during
a social call. A lounge is useful in the
dining-room, where the weary house
keeper in the interim of meals may take
her afternoon siesta. It is equally val
uable in the bed-room, where it is al
ways found in English houses, and pro
vides a comfortable resting place for thfi
afternoon nap without disturbing the
bed. In cases of prolonged sicknoss,
where it is always desirable to have a
different bed in use during the day and
tho night, a lounge, if it is properly
made, with a comfortable mattress laid
over springs, offers a delightful day bed.
Such a bed is duly appreciated by the
invalid, and being lower is more conven
ient to lie upon when meals are served.
If a., lounge is made at home,
It need not be an expensive mat
ter to procure one. First
let the house carpenter make a frame of
ordinary pine boards six inches wide
and about an inch thick. This frame
should bo ono yard in width by two
yards in length, and should ho Bupportr
ed at the four corners by turned legs of
hard wood, with castors raising the
frame from tho floor nine inches. On
this frame a set of springs or a wire'
woven mattress should bo firmly fasten
ed; such a mattress can be purchased at
any dealer in upholstery supplies for
$3.50, or less. A mattress of excolsior,
hair or any material must be fitted over
those springs, but not fastened down, as
the mattress must be turned occasional
ly. Over the mattress a slip cover of
cretonne or chintz, in any quality good
enough to bo wasaed, must he arranged,
or tho lounge may be draped with a Bag
dad rug, which will cost from $5 to J8,
according to quality. After the lounge
is covered, as many soft cushions of
down, covered with India silk at 60
cent3 a yard, or chintz at ".5 cents, may
bo arranged as the owner desires. It is
a fancy of tho hour to havo these pillows
all covered with different materials and
colors. X. V. Tribune.
