A NEIGHBORLY CHAT.
Mrs. Smith, after tho old-time fashion
of sqme country iieililioihooiU, had
brought her work to Mrs. Worth's
bouso, intending tosjiend the afternoon.
Uad 6he been in some houses jx-rhitps
her conversation would have been gos

but Mrs. Worth, s-ho knew, was not one,
to encourage anything of the kind; so

"Not so very much." Mrs. Worth
spoke quite firmly. "She. leaves home at

until 6 in the afternoon. When could

"Maybe you're right," Mrs. Smith
hesitatingly admitted, "but I think
mending for a girl 12 years old encour
ages her to idleness."
"Not at all," emphatically answered
Mrs. Worth; "she has no chance to bo
idle. With her school and her lessons,
she has more on her mind than I, with
my whole house and family. And if you
will carefully question every mother,
teacher and chihl in the neighborhood,
I think you will be compelled to agree
Mrs. Smith was at loss for an answer,
so she let her eyes wander aimlessly
around her. Suddenly sheeaught sight
of thu basket tilled with neatly ironed
"Six handkerchiefs marked L.' Four
pairs of stockings. Three sailorcollars.
All in the wash in ono week." Mrs.
Smith madu a long pause between each
comment. "Mrs. Worth, does Laura
use all tlioso in ono weekP"
"She does," quietly answered Laura's
"But what extravagance!" exclaimed
Mrs. Smith. "You indulge her too
much. You'll make her too dainty. 1
think it docs children good to keep them
down a little. Why that's a clean hand
kerchief every day.
"Mrs. Smith, I do not consider myself
extravagant," answered Mrs. Worth.
"Laura wears no jewelry nor fancy dres
ses to school. But I feci that if I ever
allow my child to be anything else than
perfectly clean, I do her a moral wrong.
The body cannot bo dirty without taint
ing tho soul. Laura needs absolutely
needs just what you see. I will never
forget the miseries 1 endured as a child
by an insulliciency of these things. I
had no mother."
As sho spoke, tho lady dropped a tear
on her hand. Iler visitor was touched,
and felt riso within her something like
admiration for the speaker.
"Well," sho said at length, "Laura
ought to be very grateful to you."
"Grateful to me?" asked Mrs. Worth;
'For all vou do for her."
"For alfl do for her? Why Mrs.
Smith, I only do my simple duty hard
ly thiit, I sometimes think, when I con
sider the greatness of my responsibil
ity. Grateful to me! Why, whose place
bit miii" is it to give her a mother's
care? Who else should do it? Why, so
far from her feeling obliged to mo for
caring for her, I ought to bo severely
punished if I did not."
"Children are a great trouble," feebly
began Mrs, Smith.
"Yes; but that's not their fault. They
do not nsk us to assume any such bur
den; it is voluntary on our part. They
have nothing to do with their coming
into tho world of trouble we every
thing. Is not this true? Have we any
rigltf. to buy what wo cannot pay for!"
The questioner was silenced for a
time. Airs. Worth had finished mend
ing Laura's dress, and was now darning
her gayly-striped hose.
"You're a queer woman," at last re
marked the visitor. "Now suppose you
had half a dozen children,"
"But I haven't" replied Mrs. Worth.
"Now, just suppose you had," per
sisted Mrs. Smith. "1 have eight.
How could I mend for anil look after
so many, like you do for t wo? Could

"It's as true as gospel," firmly as
sorted Mrs. Worth. "Ilm j.ord never

"Well, I sometimes think ho does,"
dolefully answered the other woman.
"We see families of ten and twelve ev
erywhere." "So we do," assented Mrs. Worth,
"but if we think very carefully wo are
compelled to believe that the Lord often
bears tho blame of humanity's blunders.
If we deliberately put our hands into the
tiro and burn them, we have no right to
say that tho Lord burnt our bunds,
though lie did make tho law that firo
consumes almost anything that it touch
es. God governs the uuiverso by law
and we can, to a certain extent, put
ourselves within or without the reach of
any particular law. Can we not?"
" '1 seo men as trees walking,' " un
consciously quoted Mrs. Smith.
Mrs. Worth smiled gladly, thinking
to herself that she had momentarily
touched her neighbor's little-used intel
lect. "Suppose, though," continued Mrs.
Smith, falling back into her old strain,
"Laura should grow up and bring dis
credit upon your training."
"Well," answered Mrs. Worth, a
shade of tenderness mingled with anx
iety crossing her lino features, "I can
not think she will; I have faith to be
lieve sho will not. But if she should, I
will faithfully strive to do my part; I
believe that if every parent did so, not
one child in a hundred would go astray.
I must not think of nriytblng but my
own duty hers Is another matter. 1
dare not neglect mine simply becaiHo I
nin nfraid she will hers. Two wrongs
do not make a right. So, then, if 1 do
have a bad child, 1 will at least have a
"Is there any tiso of educating her so
much?" inquired Mrs. Smith, tlying off
on a tangent. "Do you expect her to
"I don't know." answered Mrs.
Worth. "I hope not; teachers usually
have such hard lives. But I want her
educated, simply because I believe it the
duty of every parent to educate bis or
her child, and the right of every child
to obtain an education."
"Suppose parents cannot afford it."
"Theu they must be very shiftless
parents; iu fact, such parents cannot af
ford to have children at alb No man

prospect of supporting a family; do you
think ho hasr
"No, 1 cannot say that I do. But what
is tho use of an education, unless one
earns a living by it?"
"Mrs. Smith, such a question should
not bo considered a niomont except,
perhaps, in caso of technical training.
But it is Just as much my duty to culti
vate my ehihl's mind as her muscles.
The Lord gave her an intellect just as
surely as be did a right arm. What
woulii you think of mo if I never per
mitted "her to use that right arm? Do
you seo tho analogy? Now, there aro
many cases in which control of our
brains is of more uso tou3 than control
of our bodies."
"I see; I never thought of that bo
fore. But, Mrs. Worth, if you educate
Laura so highly; if you keep her at
school until she is 18, won't sho be
come too lino for every day work?
Won't sho despise plain housekeeping?
Besides, when will sho find time to learn
"Sho won't despise evcry-day work,
or anything useful, unless my home
training is in fault. In fact, the more
learned sho becomes, the more hope
will 1 have for her; it is only the half
educated who put on such airs. As to
time in which to learn I don't worry
about that. An intelligent person can
Blways learn faster than a dull ono. I
venture to say that, in less than six
months after sho graduates, Laura will
bo an accomplished house-keeper.
Next, I venture to see her mistress of
somo accomplishment by which she will
always bo able to cam a living."
"Ilave you no fear of her health? So
many young girls have died, within tho
last few years, of over-study."
"Not a great deal. I think many of
tho deaths said to bo from over-study
were, in reality, from other causes. I
admit that every modern school or col
lego for young ladies requires a great
deal of hard work; but, them- instruct
ors reasonably expect that when a girl is
actually in pursuit of an education, sho
will make it her chief business. But
here, you see a studious girl who sup
ports herself by teaching out of school
hours; here, another who has too many
home-cares on her shoulders; another,
who is insufficiently clothed and fed:
still another, who was already delicate
in health when she entered upon her
course of study. Now, these 'things
should not be. In such a case there is
always somebody to blame somebody's
ignorance, or carelessness, or selfishness
is at the bottom of the whole matter.
Study, pure aud simple, within reason
able limits, never killed anybody. Now,
I intend to regulate Laura's clothes,
food, rest, exercise, and everything, my
self. 1 will use every care, and be guided
by the light of all possible science on the
subject, and 1 will see if she does not

"Suppose sho had no mother."
Mrs. Smith's tone changed from cavil
ing to one almost of reverence.
"Ah! that I must leave to the hands
of the Lord. But while sho has one sho
shall never sutler tho need of one."
When Mrs. Smith rose to go, she
pressed her friend's band fervently.
With something like tears in her eyes
and voice, she softly murmured: "Dear
Mrs. Worth! I will never forget this
day. You have made mo another and,
I hope, a better woman. You will
have your reward some day, whether in
this world or tho next. Good-by!"

While we wen? connected with the
tnililia of the state it would have been
disloxal in us to have taken sides with
either Lngland or lv-ypt in the war that
is going on, to have given advice to
either would have been not only a vio
lation of our armed neutrality, but
would have been an injustice to the
state that paid us six dollars a year for
having resigned the lieutenancy of the
Milwaukee Light Horse Squadron, aud

desiring advice from us can receive it
at tho usual rates, and there will be no
impropriety in the transaction. Sinco
becoming a common, ordinary citizen,
and takinir off the insignia of rank and
power, wo have not censed to take an
interest in warlike matters. To-day we
have been studying over a picture of
Arabi Bey, in one of tho illustrated pa
pers, and our practical eye, accustom
ed to grasp a situation "from a casual
glance at a war map, or a melon field,
has made it possiblo to sec at once what
is the matter with Arabi, to diagnose
his case in a second, and to be able to
prescribe a plan of warfare that would
bring tho rebel into camp as soon as the
medicine we should prosoriho began to
have its effect. Arabi Bey Pasha is bil
ious. That is all that ails hint in tho
world. His liver is torpid, his stomach
is soured, and ho is simply out of order.
He shows it in his face. 'His eyo balls
are yellow this may bo on nccount of
the yellow paper on which the picture
is printed, but, ho is not u well man, this
is certain, lie does not need iron in his
blood, or sugar of lead fired from car
bines. What ho wants is bluo pills,
quin'mo and a liver pad. If the Eng
lish forces will stop shooting shells, bul
lets'and sabres at this saffron colored
rebel, and fire bluo pills, quiuino, wa
termelons and liver pads, they can cure
him in a week. Guns can bo arranged
to shower blue pills ou his camp, so
that some of them must penet rate his
system. A mortar made to fit liver pads
could be constructed, and all of this
could bn done without the loss of aman.
After Arab! had got tho pills and
things, ho would brighten up, and final
ly disband his army. It is dyspepsia
and liver complaint that Is causing the
war. If our advico is taken it need not
