Differences in families tiuitod by mar
riage aro mostly on the sido of the wo
men. Woman fails in tact to preserve
the amenities of tho hearth. Tho soft
answer or the repression which evades
an issue is more on the part of tho man
than the wife. Young women manage
thoir lovers, but lose their skill to mau

The Great Newspaper.
In an address beforo tho Brooklyn
Presbytery Rev. J. M. Sherwood said:
It is well to bear in mind that the
religious weekly is no longer tho solo
or chief paper that is read by ministers
and church members. Tho daily secu
lar press has invaded the Hold, and is
already omnipresent, and almost su
premo as an educational power, not on
ly iu tho State, but in tho Church, and,
for the most part, it is characterized by
greater enterprise and independence,
greater breadth of uiow and freedom of
criticism in ovcry department of thought
and life, than we, lind in our church
journals. Ibiuce, the religious weekly of
to-day as every man of discernment and
broad observation knows is not tho
power it onco was; its opinions havo
littlo weight; its policy and principles
scarcoly atroct the religious thought and
lifo of to-day, whilo the daily secular
press is fast taking its place, and gain
ing the ears and hearts of tho people,
and making its way into every house
hold every day of the week, not except
ing even tho Sabbath; full of informa
tion, ready in discussion; fearless, al
most unbridled in criticism, reviewing

Nearly all the great dailies in this
country now publish Sunday editions,
containing not only tho current nows,
but original and selected mattors bear
ing upon all tho leading topics of the
time. Those topics, sacred or secular,
aro discussed from the journalistic or
popular standpoint. Tho discussion is
not alwavs profound, and ni'f'panr'ilw
cannot be exhaustive; but it is intended
to be, and generally is, bright, forcible,
intelligible and impartial. It is not for tho
highly educated few, but tho moderate
ly educated many; and iU bvevity and

popular education which modern jour

social structure. It strengthens its
weakest point, tho foundation, by rend
ering perilous popular delusions, if not
impossible, at least short-lived. It
teaches tho people not only to do thoir
own thinking, but to stand 'guard over
themselves. It is at onco "guide, phil

Modern journalism is not faultless by
any moans, but its faults aro of tho
head rather tho heart, and soldom very
serious. If the fault-finder would only
search for and point out the merits they
might help to cure much of which they

invalid covered. Milk is a ready absor
bent. Then there aro cooling drinks,
ollies, blancmanges, and a variety ot
iquids usually seen at tho invalid's bed-
sido, which are all more or less absorb

once visited an invalid who had her
bedside table supplied with an array of
glasses, cups, tumblers, etc., the con
tents of not ono ot which could wo see,
all being covered with a most amusing
arlety of glass and porcelain lids.
The invalid liked to forgot the contents
of each, and was amusou to lire one or
anothor of tho tiny covers and soloct a
refreshment which presented itself to
her tasto. And to keep invalid amusod,
and ready to relish what Uprovidod for
them, are important duties In nursing.
Such slight attentions cost littlo trouble,
while they prove to the sufferer that ho
or she is tenderly cared for.
