The Ferl4 Whoa the Hooae
Wife Blaea la Her Imperial night
ana the Hanhaad ft lads Himself
aa Oatcaat aad a Slenrner About the
With the advent of the first bright
day in the springtime the good house
wife becomes uneasy by day and by
night, remarks the Keokuk Constitution
Democrat. She dreams of scrubbing and
sees visions of dirt in every nook of the
cheerful and udisturbed home. A. late
spring makes late crops, but it does not
make late house cleaning. The time of
the beginning is as unalterable as the law
of the Medes and Persians. It is one
of the statutes in the blue book of the
ancient people . So when the sun warms
the frost from the windows, and the
snow gathers in pools of water by the
way Bide, the house wife rises to the de
mands of the occasion, and the sombre
days, the sadiest of the year, fall upon
the erstwhile peaceful home. At
these times man finds himself an
outcast 8nd it was of this condi
tion that it was written of old by the
praacher concerning the mourners going
about the streets. In these days desola
tion stalks in the wake of the moving fe
males in all the rooms in the house, and
the picture of a Dakota cyclone abounds
It is at such times that the canned sal
mon that Eupplants the juicy roast for
dinner, feels to the taste all the more cold
and clammy from the enervating surround
ings of the meal. When at night the
head of the hou;e moves to his bed as
sockless as a Kansas statesman he feels
all the moral force of his nature aroused
as be touches the newly scrubbed .but
cold and clammy floor. In these times
carpets are banished, the fire burns low
in tne base burner, the cold, cold moon
looks in at the curtainless window, the
family pipe is mislaid and the arm chair
is not found in the corner. After a week
of this gloomy life, as order begins to
assert itself again from out of the chaos,
the patient and hurofcls man draws s
sigh of relief.

Walking; Versus Cycling-.
Soma think that cycling is a substitute
for the use of one's legs in the way most
natural. It is certainly a faster method of
gettinR over the ground; in other respecta
it is vast! j inferior to the old original form
of exercise. Even the accomplished cyclist
cannot belp letting his thoughts center
upon his machine, and the various hazards
to which he and it are exposed. Is the hill
in front too steep to ride up? Is the hill
below steep enough to permit of an aban
donment of the treadles and a surrender to
that voluptuous pleasure of brisk motion
through space, which has something more
than humanly agreeable about it? Will
those children there get out of the way in
time, or is he the rider to have the harden
of boyslaughter upon his soul And soon.
In truth the cyclist is not half the man
, that the pedestrian is at the time of their
respective exercise. The pedestrian can
whistle and swing his stick, and look to
the right and left of him, peep with sweet
deliberation into the cottage by the way,
wherein he sees a smooth cheek and a glad
blue eye, which to the cyclist, urged on by
his fate, are a mere flash of possibilities
and the next moment nothing at all. The
cyclist sees too much and too little. lie
may have a fair general knowledge of the
country he has 6ped through; but of the
details he can recount little. It is no such
immense achievement to watch the scurry
ing of the YelloWnanimcr from one point of
the hedge to another five yards further,
theaanother five yards on, until at length,
as if it were out of patience with the harm
lessness of the advancing biped, it whistles
off obliquely toward a turnip field.
Still the man afoot may take an interest
in birds; or if he 1 a lover of plants he
may see a score of kinds amid the under
growth of the hedge at a single protracted
look; aye, and without any fuss stoop down
and examine them. The cyclist, on the
other hand, has a confused vision of
greenery and plowed fields or ripening
grain. It is as if he had eaten his dinner
in one uncomely heap, soup, joint, the wing
of a fowl and a tart or two all being jum
bled horribly together. All the Year
The Good Old Fashion.
The enchantment of distance, like the
haze of Indian summer, is nndeniable, but
it is atmospheric It ia not a part of the
thing seen, it is the medium through
which we see it. The old fashioned, win
ter is such a winter as sometimes occurred
when there was not a new fashioned win
ter that is to say, that sometimes winter
was mild, sometimes severe, as it is now.
But there is no good old fashioned quality
heroism, solf sacrifice, manly jersist
ence, truthfulness and honor iu all deal
ingwhich has gone out of fashion.
Genius, indeed, fluctuates from age to
ace. There are splendid epochs of art and
literature the ageot Pericles, of Augustus,
of the Medici, of Elizabeth; but the age of
character, of public and private virtue, is
perpetual. One voice may whisper that
the Decalogue and the golden rule have
nothing to do with politics. But a greater
voice, swelling into a chorus of conviction,
silences it by saying that politics are moral
principles applied to public affairs. The
beamy of the moral universe, like that of
visihie nature, never becomes old fashion
ed. George William Curtis in Harper's.
No Winter Climate I.Ike Our Own.
There is no winter climate elsewhere to
compare with that found in our extreme
southwest or in Mexico, and the sooner we
put this fact into poetry and literature and
letrin to make a tradition of it the lietter
will it le for our peace of miud and for our
children. And if the continent does not
satisfy us, there lie the West ladies within
a few hours' sail, with all the luxuriance
ami geniality of the tropics. We are only
half emancipated yet. We are still apt to
see the world through the imagination of
England, whose literature we adopted, or
To these bleak lands Italy was a para
dise, and was so sung by iioets who had no
conception of a winter without frost. Wc
have a winter climate of another sort from
any in Europe; we have easy and comfort
able access to it. The only thing we need
tO do nOW is to Correct onr imnrinatinn
which has been led astray. Our poets can
at least do this for us. Charles Dudley

A Queer Cure for Sore Kye.
Funnily enough, an Egvptian connects a
woman with any suffering that may come
to his eyes. If they ache or hurt he looks
out for a blonde woman named Fatima,
legs from her a bit of bread and informa
tion as to where he will find six more
Fatimas, that he may ask the same favor
of each. Fortunately for him, they do not
all have to be blondes, and a wise Egyptian
father, seeing the value of the uame, is apt
to give it to one of his daughters, so there
are plenty of Fatimas. Whether t he En
glish speaking maiden makes eyes suffer
or not, who can say? Xew York Sun.
