Her daughters, too, well tutored by her art,
All unreluctant In her game take part;
Or, weakly piastre, yield themselves to fate,
Knowing full well resistance is too late.
Thus are her victims to the altar led,
With shining robes and flowers upon the head.

Clothed In white a happy child at play,
Iter face all radiant as the hues of morning
With fairy step she trod;
A creature lovely as the flowers of May,
Who could bewitch us with her childish scorn

Clothed In white with blossoms In her hair,
A maiden whom to love appeared a duty
A spell around her hung;
A sense of all that Nature makes most fair,
That tilled with rapture all who watched her
Or heard her silver tongue
Clothed In white she heard the wedding
Blushing beneath her orange flowers,
As her soft answer flows
Like music, with no prescience of time
When o'er life, which love so fondly dowers,
The shadowy grave will close.
Clothed In white her form we seem to sco

Defying Time aud night,

If you and 1, to-day,
Should stop And lay
Our life-work down, and let our hands fall where
Fall down to lie quite still
Ani If some other hand should come and stoop
The threads wo carried, so that It could wind,
Beginning where we stopped: if it should come
Our life-work going; seek
To carry on the good design
Distinctively made yours, or mine,
What would it Audi
Borne work we must he doing, true or false;
Bomo threads we wind; some purpose so exalts
Itself that we look up to, or down,
As to a crown
, To bow before, and we weave threads
Of different lengths and thickness some mere
And wind them round
Till all the skein of life Is bound,
Sometimes forgetting at the task
The vuluo of the threads, or choose
Strong stuff to use.
No hand hut winds somo thread;
It canuot stand quite still, till It Is dead,
Bnt what It spins and winds a little skein,
God made each hand for work not toil-stain
Is required, but every hatid
Spins, though but ropes of sand,
If Love should come,
Stooping above when we are done,
To find bright threads
That wo have held, that It may spin them longer
And but Blircds
That break when touched, how coldl
Sad, shivering, portionless, the hands will hold
Tho broken strands and know
Fresh cause for woe.
"UNCLE TOWS CABIN."
How it Cante to be Written.

Two miles distant from this villasre.
over among a groop of hills through
which tised to wind the celebrated Crab
Orchr.d pike of half a century ago,
stands a lino old red-brick .mansion fac
ing south and commanding a viow of
miles upon miles of wavwiko hills and
valley, ritty years ago it was tho plan
tation of Gen. Thomas Kennedy, a Vir
cinan, who fought t King's mountain
with Marlon and came to Kentucky
about 1780 to wrest the garden of tho
central portion of the'Stato from tho In
dians. Tho old red-brick liouso and tho
ground all about it havo .lately becomo
famous as being the lorlglnal scene in
Mrs. Stowo'a novel of "Undo Tom's
Cabin," Gen. Kennedy owned 7,000
acres of land, 150 slaves, and was en
ormously wealthy for ithoso days. Ho
was a man of wonderful icharactor and
determination, a Black Douglass in tho
Garrard hills. Ho was a tall, athletio
and halo man, with the erect enrriago of
an inman aud tne rutenoi a commander.
Ho was, in the main, :a man of fair im
pulse and royal generosity when calm;
but, when angered, ho was Insatiably
cruel to his slaves. Gen. Kennedy died
in 1836, and left tho bulk of his prop
perty to ids son Thomas, then about 20
years old. In three Tears ttlie young
man had run through snore than a great
fortune, and was dead rat
tho very outset of his career.
Among the slaves left In 'his estate was
nn intelligent, hlgh-struugoctoroouboy,
named Lewis Clarke, who had been
granted comparative freedom, in being
allowed to travel about with an open
pass, trading, woavlng and occupying
himself as ho pleased, paying his imi.stur
a certain sum every mouth. When the
estate camo to bo settled, it was discov
ered that somo of tho slaves must ho
sold, aud an execution ,was issued
against Lowis among thu others. Tho
rumor got out and at that .day tho ru
mor was a dreadful one among si uvea
that tlioy wcro tobo "sold down South."
On thdlllrst night of tho September!

From Lewis Clarke's own lips I gath
ered, tho'story of how Mni. Stowo ciuae
o'writo "Undo Tom's Cabin," Dr.
llalloy, who published tho Philanthro
pist in Cincinnati, had been persuaded
to moyo to Washington city about 1818
or 1850, where ho established an eman
cipationist organ, tlio National Era,
Ho thought if ho could gottomo woman

write a series of nrtldos for his paper

its violation 01 01 mo nnest sonumonu,
that It would ruvivo public interest and

write to her, and, by way of earnest, in
closed her a draft for $100. Tho letter
was written and tho draft sent. Tho
r.cxt week there appeared in tho columns
of tho National Era, not tho first of a
scries of articles on slavery, but tho first
chapters of a story called "Undo Tom, a
Cabin." Tho circulation of tho National
lira increased at once, and soon became
very large. Mrs. Stowo was poor and
and earning her money so laboriously
that, for fear tho great novel would bo
cut short, sho was sont an additional
draft for $300. Then sho copyrighted
tho story, which in bcok form has mado
her a fortune, and becomo mora famous

No ono should como to Ravennali
without seeing Bonavcnturo. This was

Tatnall; it is now a cemetery. Tho old
Commodore was a man of strong pecu
liarities, and many anecdotes are told of

friends to dine, and just at tho time th
tablo was set it was discovered tho man
slon was on firo. Littlo could bo dono

over tho Commodore ordered tho tablo
to bo spread on tho lawn, as ho would

tho burning of his house.
Even tho most unimaginative tiullviu
nual must bo impressed as ho passes
down theso long avenues of livo oaks,
with their far-spreading brandies
draped with moss, forming tho most
exquisite festoons nature over makes.
Theso groves are wido and long. It Is
said theso oaks, over 100 years old
wcro planted in tho form of tho mon

the letter T. Tho oaks aro immense,
and it seems as if you'wero passing

It is tho poetic supposition that Gothic
architecture owes its orlzin to tho fact
that early builders copied their deco
j-ations from tho forests In which they

and tho groins of the vaulted roof. In
Bonavcnturo this belief amounts almost
to a demonstration; architecture may
imitate, but cannot surpass tho inter
laced branches of these old oaks; while
no artist could ever hopo to equal the
grace, delicacy and beauty of tho moss
which hangs from all their branches,
The whole cllect is impressive, and a

What Is Nickle
Since tho convenient live-cent coin
which in common talk is called "a
nickel," lias como into general clrculao
lion, tho qucsslon abovo is asked cither
mentally or orally huri'loth of time
evory day, aud butfewgotanintelligant
answer. In China and India, a white
copper, called pack tong, has long been
known, and has beon extensively used
both there and in Europo for country
felting silver coin. About thoyearlTOO
a peculiar oro was dlseoverod in the
copper mines of Saxony, which had tho
appcranco of bolng very rich, but in
semelting it yielded no copper, and tho
minors called it kupfer-nickle, or f ales
copper. In 1754, Constadt announced
the discovery of a new metnl in kepfer
nickel, to which he gave tho nanio of
nickel. In was in combination with
arsenic, from which ho could relief it
only in part. Tho alloy of 'nickel and
arsenic which he obtained was white,
brittle and hard, and had a malting
point nearlp as high as cast Iran. It
was not until 1823 that pure .nickel was
obtained by analysis of Gorman silver,
which had for a number of years been
product at Suhl, in Saxony, Its com
position was ascertained to be copper'10
parts, zlno 6 and nickel 4.. If mora
nickel be used the alloy is as white as
silvor and susceptible of a Tery high
polish, but decomes to brittle .and hard
to bo hammered or rolled, and can bo
worked only by casting. P.uro nh Wo is
a white metal which tarnishes readily in
tho air. Unliko silver, it is mot actjd
on by the vapor of sulphur, ;and mven
tho strong mineral acids attract it but
stlghtly. Nickel has tho hardness cf
iron, and, llko it has strong mrf-iutlo
proportlest, but cannot bo wilder and lo
soldered with dinieulty. tfuro nickel

In order that tlio publio may know
tho financial standing nnd condition of
corporations proposing to furnish in
surance, tho law-making power of tho
Stato lias wisely provided that certain
statements under oath shall bo mado to
tho Auditor of Stato. Theso exhibits
furnish data from which to concludo as
to tho responsibility and safety of tho
company which proposts to issue its
policies and receive its premiums. Al
though tho law regulating theso mat
ters has been for years in operation,
and supposed to bo fully understood,
especially by insuranco companies, yet
It appears that tho Auditor of Stato has
found it necessary to supplement his
insurance report for 1881, oy tho inser
tion of tho following notes.
Btatb or Iowa, Orricit or Auditoh, I
Des Moines, May ID, 1881. (
'.'Slnco this report was put into type,
an opinion from tho Attorney-General
has been received, in which is decided
tho meaning of 1186 of tho Code. In
that opinion it is held that tho re-Insurance
fund shall bo calculated upon the
gross amount of premiums received,
nnd not upon the unearned premiums.
Therefore, tho report of tho Farmers'
Firo Insuranco Company, and tho Cedar
Ilaplds Firo Insuranco Company, both
of Cedar Ilaplds, as published elsewhere
In this report, nro wrong as to their net
Tho Farmers' has $27,802.79 surplus
Instead of $!)l,74.1.22, as reported.
Tho Cedar Itapids has $28,005.83
surplus, instead of $38,002.91, us re
ported. A foot-note with tablo No. 1 calls at

W. V. Lucas. Auditor of Stato.
An evasion of tho law is no more to bo
excused in a corporation tl 'i whan re
sorted to by nn individual, and there
enn bo no excuso for tho Cedar Itapids
Companies to cvndo the law. Any
method of calculation tho result o'f
which Is apparently to increase the
assets of a company is an imposition
upon tlio public, nnd is deserving of tho
severest censure. If an insurance com
pany is not sufficiently strong to stand
upon its merits and a strict construc
tion of tho facts, the sooner it goes to
tho wall tho better. Iowa with her
boundless prosperity and resources does
not wish to foster liny but legitimate
and deserving enterprises. It would
seem that it was scarcely necessary to
requlro a formal opinion of tho legal
officer of tho Stato to decide a matter
heretofore so uniformly understood by
all insurance companies doing business
in this State, as "that the rc-Tti sura tic c
fund shall bo calculated upon the gross
amount of premiums recieved, and not
upon tho unearned premiums." The
law was enacted for the protection of
the public against frndulcnt companies,
and any attempts to practice upon tho
"resumed gullibility of the people should
be exposed. The Auditor of Stato lias
very properly culled attention to the
cases above referred to. As tho public
should be informed of all facts affecting
tho financial standing of corporations
seeking their business, wo make notice
of theso cases as a matter of justice to

Tlio necessities and great bcneflbi of
Llfo Insuranco nro acknowledged by tho
nblcst minds in commerce and science,
for years its advantages wcro accented
by and almost entirely confined to tlioso
engaged In commercial pursuits, who,
because of the nature of their calling,
subject to tho misfortunes that so fro
nuontly attend business ventures, were
first to sco tho importance of doing
something that would secure their fami
lies against want, when reverses in
business, or death, ovortook themselves.
To-day ono hundred representative busi
ness men of Chicago nro carrying over
six million dollars in Llfo Insurance, and
most of those men ate classed among
tho Wealthiest men of th west. Their
experience; has taught them tho lesson.
How much more important is It for those
engaged in agricultural pursuits to fix n
sum from tho same sourco that will
place thoso who are equally dear to
them beyond dependence on friends
and tho charitable. Hcilcct on this;
don't delay. No man knows when
his hour will come, but all should
bo prepared. Tho Centennial Mu
tual Llfo Asioclation of lliirllngtoti,
Iowa, has paid $-100,000 to widows and
orphans in thu State of Iowa during tho
past five years. What an amount of
good this has done is known only to tho
ofllccrs who paid it out, heard the story
of tho recipients, anil received their
thnnks. If there is nn agent in vour vi
cinity apply to him at once. Vou will
bo Insured at tho actual cost thereof.
Tills Company does not add four or five
hundred per cent, to pay princely sala

to charge this amount in order that you
may bo secure. In furnishing Insuranco
