A man in Missouri tho other day wad

him. Arising he girt his loins about
him and hied him to Little Rock. Leav
ing tho train ho made his way to tho
Stato House, inserted his fingers into a
crevice in tho foundation and drew out
a $100 bill which Ito had secreted while
a prisoner at Littlo Rock during tho
war, nearly twenty years before, but
w hoso existence he had quito forgotten,
even during previous occasions when
much in need of money. "As I took
the bill from ito hiding-place," says tho
old man or tho reporter "a flood of
recollections poured over mo. For a
moment I could sco the hungry faces
around me; I could see ragged forms,
arid J could hoar tho half plaintive, half
revengeful voices around me. I felt for

Olive Logan is a sensible sort of a wo
man upon certain subjects, and upon the
subject of bringing up girls she winds tin a
long list of ndvico with the following nit
of sound sense: "A woninn's safeguard
is to keep a man's hands off her. If yon
need his assistance in walking, take his
nnn instead of his taking yours. Just
tell hiiu in plain English "hands off.1 Ho
may not like it at the time, but ho will
respect you in tho future tenfold more.
Men will bo and do just what tho wo
men will allow them to do. Men will
not do to trust, (iivo a man your arm,
and you will lind him very confidential,
nnd ho will take a great many privileges
ho would not take if ho wits uot per
mitted to do so. Ho will give your arm
many loving squeezes and sly twists
that ho could have no opportunity of do
ing, and opportunity is what he is after.
A few words more of advice nnd I am
done. Keep your girls off tho streets
except when they have business. Teach
them that it Is unnecessary to go to tho
post-olllco every time they go out. Your
girls can walk alotio as well as your
boys. Don't allow your girls, if they
must have'a beau, t go with boys much
older than themselves. If possible, in

safer in their own hands than they are

of last Tuesday afternoon, will be held on

at the residence of the president. Busi

Tho ladies of tho Library Association are
perfecting arrangements for a fine enter
tainment and grand benefit for the library
to come off at tho opera house at some date
early in June. Prof. Brownies, teacher of
Elocution at Carbondalo Normal University,
and one of the finest dramatic readers in
the west, has kindly offered to assist on tho
occasion. The best musical talent of Cairo
will take part, and some fine tableaux and
other attractions be included in tho bill.
The excellent paper upon "Organized
Charities," read by tho Rev. Myron W.
Reed, of Indianapolis, before the annal
meeting ol the Illinois Social Science
Association in Chicago, October 4th, 1881,
is published in the Western Magazine for
March. Mr. Reed gives an interesting
account ot the foundation and wordings of
the system of Organized Charities in In
dianapolis, and what it baa accomplished
since its inception in relieving tho deserv
ing poor, preventing fraud and imposition,
and conducting charity upon buainess-like
aud commonsense principles. During one
year from March, 1880, to March, 1881,
thirteen hundred families for relief at the
office of the Charity Organization. In
every caro possible tha complete history of
these families was obtained and recorded,
assistance rendered where needed and de
served, and imposture unmasked. Within
less than two years a remarkable chango
has been wrought in Indianapolis; there is
now almost no begging on the street, in
offices and at back doors of private houses.
This systematized plan of dispensing charity,
should be followed in every city, large and
Mrs. Starrctt, in a late oditorial tn,on
"American Homes," suya: "The perfec
tion to which the art ot livi-g la often
brought by intelligent and cultivated peo
ple of tho present day, both in the matter of
outward, architectural beauty of form, and
internal, domestic conveniences of arrange
ment of dwelling houses in city and coun
try, as well as in tho furnishings aud adorn
ments of tho home, is ono of tho beautiful
and inspiring features of our civilization.
This is especially truo in our own country.
"It is tho laud of beautiful and lovely
homes," said a coble German lady who
had spent nearly two years in visiting dif
ferent portions of "try. This per
. ...v,u and beauty of American homes doca
not depend upon tho possession of largo
means. Many of tho lovhest Louies am
those people iu moderate circumstances.
A word in favor of having a real,
dignillud parlor ia every well regulated
homo. As we put on our best clothes, our
jewels and lacea in honor of a guest or of a
special occasion, ao wo need in most homes
to keop thov parlor specially to rocoiva
guests and fur use on occasions transcend
ing ordinary. It is impossible for a room
that ia "lived in" by a family long to retain
tho look of elegance and freshness that aro
characteristic of a good parlor. In the
library or sitting room it ia vory woll to
have things bearing traces of ovory day uso,
and into these Apartments wo may desiro
to take our intimato friends. But parlors, '
like codes of manners, help us to maintain
our proper relation to those wo meet in the
social world who ono acquaintances only.
A parlor then ia tho proper apartment to;
contain delicate and beautiful things that
would not bear tho wear and tear of every
day uso, and which teach people decorum
and flno manners, People who aro accus
tomed to them learn how to respect and
how to uso beautiful things. Lot tho
housekeeper who can afford it have a roal
parlor to contain tho many dollcato and
beautiful things which will not stand
every day use, and be aa appropriate place
always ready in which to receive aud abovf
honor to a guest." ; ' , '
