MY MOTHER'S MEMORY.
Mr mother died pre I could scarce
Breathe her beloved name.
And o'er my childhood's sunny path
Dark clor.ds of sorrow came;
My bark of life was wrecked u'ixn
Misfortune's hidden reef.
And ere bright manhood ojx me dawned
1 hud wept tears of grief;
And now I seek my mother's grave.
That not oua soul may see
How dark the shadows are that throw
Their somber hues o'er me.
The birds are in the merry glen,
The April flower j bloom;
But I their beauties leave to sit
Beside my mother's tomb;
And there I watch, in solemn thought,
Some bright star in the sky.
And think within its depths I see
My mother's gentle eye;
And happy dreams within me rise.
My sorrowinir heart to cheer;
I think althourh to me unseen
Her loving spirit's near.
I mix among my fellow men,
Within the marts of trade;
But. ah, my mind is far away
Beneath the willow's shade;
And though the world has many charms
Which other hearts may see.
By far the brightest of them all
Possess no joys for'me.

WOMEN IN GOVERNMENT OFFICES.
Secretary Chase Appointed tUe First One
In Ills Department In 1861.
The death of General Spinner gave rise
to the suggestion that the women of the
country should erect a monument to his
memory, and for the reason that to him is
the credit due of first triving employment
to women in the treasury department.
General Spinner died with many claims to
the public (iratitude, but he did not origin
ate the practice of employing women as
clerks in the departments. The first ap
pointee .was Miss It. I. Wilson. She was
appointed by Secretary Chase, Sept. 13,
1SU, upon his own motion, and assigned to
duty in that branch of the treasury which
is known as "the secretary's office."
The second appointment, of Miss 11. C.
Kellar, was made April 4, 1862. She was
assigned to duty in the secretary's office,
but in the month of October, 1SC2, she was
transferred to the treasurer's bureau, and
at the same time Jwo additional appoint
pointments were made by the secretary,
and the apiointees were assigned to duty
under the treasurer.
In the years 1N5 1-2-8 there were only
twelve women appointed in the treasury
department. Of t hese one was in t he secre
tary's office, five, including one transferred,
were in the treasury, four were in the regis
ter's bureau, and two were in the internal
revenue of.ice. All these appointments
were made by Secretary Chase; but two of
them, one of April 4, lSf.2, and one of July
lt', is&s, were supported by the recommen
dation of General Spinner.
As the appointments were made by Secre
tary Chase, and as the first one, which ante
dates the second by thirteen months, was
made upon his own motion, nd as he then
had the power to exclude women altogether,
the chief credit would seem to lie due to
him. It is a tradition of the department.
supported, indeed, by the knowledge of
many persons, that Ueneral t-pinnerwas au
early and earnest advocate of the new
policy,-but it is also true that the twelve
women employed in the years named pave
such prools of intelligence, fidelity and
capacity that the exclusion of the sex be
came an impossibility.
The fact may be worthy of notice, and
especially worthy of notice by those who
have been led to believe that it is the first
and chief business of every administration
to make removals, that of the twelve
women appointed previous tti Jan. 1, 1S04,
ten are even now in office. Two of thes
are paid a salary of $-.KK) each, six are upon
a salary of $l,2iH) each, and of the two re
maining one receives a salary of fl.GOO and
the other a salary of tl,SK).
In tho.-e thirty years the number of
women employed by the government has
increased to many thousands. In all the
various duties imposed upon them they
have shown adequate capacity, and in faith
fulness the- are not' inferior to the men
who are engaged in similar services. It
may lie assumed that each year will en
large the sphere of their laliors and add to
their compensation, which, speaking gen
erally, is not equal to the pay of men en
gaged in corresponding work. Geo. S.
Iloutweil in Boston Globe.
Making Water Drops Jump.
If we let a drop of water fall on a leaf of
paper it will spread out in a large circle,
and we then say that the water soaks into
the paper. But if we have oiled this paper
or plastered it with lampblack or some
other substance into which water dries not
soak, the drops will roll iver the paper like
a ball, slightly flattened. Use is made of
this peculiarity in the trick which is de-scritx-d
Take a strip of paper pretty strong in
texture a trifle wider than four inches and
as long as you can get. Several pieces of
paper pasted cud to end will do. Pass the
paper over tiie smoking flame of a lamp,
or, to do away with all odor, cover one side
of the paper wit h plumbago. Place on end
on the table several bonks of gradually de
Spread over t heir hacks the strip of pa
per, having a care to make the undulations
more and more accentuated as you go from
the large book toward the small ones. At
the end of the little book let the strip of
paper fail itito a plate. At the other end,
where the large book stands, pour the wa
ter, drop by drop, on the paper.
These drops will roll on the inclined
plane which they meet; then, in conse
quence of the momentum acqtlired, will
mount over the back of the second book,
and thus following one another they will
reach the plate. The siectacle of these
drops of water rising and falling by turns,
and seeming to compete in liveliness with
each other, is most curious. Buffalo Ex
press. Vegetation Diet In Sickness.
Beaumetz claims that a vegetation diet
thoroughly subserves alimentation of the
organism; the best proof of which is furn
ished by the poor peasants who do not
eat meat, yet are strong and healthy.
This diet is of therapeutic importance
in certain diseases. A vegetable diet
limits to a minimum the production of
toxines, such as neurin, muscarin, etc It
is indicated in sufficient functional activi
ty of the kidneys and alimentary canal,
indeed, in all similar conditions where an
accumulation of ptomaines in the blood
might prove dangerous.
It is also indicated in "putrid diarrhoea."
In diseases of the stomach a vegetable diet
is especially indicated, as the intestines are
principally employed in its digestion, thus
affording the stomach considerable rest.
In the uric acid; diathesis this diet is also
recommended. Herald of Health.
