per week left for family. The usual
ration fed to the cow is one peek of

llell. Grinnmbling" is the 1ham-1rst 11ha belongs to unliversll hnniy Te Inmn inl the Cam'den1
o' Edn had vve.ry wanit fIlifilled, had every privilege acco(r lded to hil, bit the eat inlg of' the friuit of one
tret. IIe grtilibled heanuse he did lt have Ihat, and his gritiblinig cioist himiii Paradise.
The first thin ig a hahy does is to raise a howl and 111 make 11 k k. We\t a all horit kickers:-Nobody
likes Iis husi ness, no matter what that. business is. To heatr men talk. they are all losing money. The
dry goiods man says business is not what it used to be, he is losing money every year; lie wears fine clothes;
his wife wears diiamomds;. they own their own carriage, and have a cottage by the sea-side;-still he is
losing money. It is the saIle with the doetors, the lawyers, and men in every profession. Then, the farm
er, the man you tlinulk Voultd be content, is the greatest grumbler of them all. If the season is dry, "We
will not make seed this year"; if the Ileaveni pour abundanee and the barns burst, "We will not get any
thing for our stuff, there is no use having it.'' Nobody wants his son to follow the same line of business.s
There are gruiblers in every voeation aid locati'on. There are eore grunimblers in the home than anywhere
else. The man in business has to be a gentleman :-at home he doesn't have td be' anything in particular.
You say it is a hard lot to be shut up within brick walls, that it would be delightful to get off some
where and enjoy fresh viands and pure air. You go:-wheii you get there, the place is beastly, the peo
ple are the most vulgar you ever saw, the. food is stale, the little room wiere they have put you is an old
garret, and you just wish you had stayed at home, and so does every one else.
Everybody knows how a work ought to be done, except the poor wretches who are doing it. Is it not
strange, that as you improve, everybody else and everything else see~ns to improve at the same time?
Here are some prescriptions for chronie grumbling:--Try to live right. The best way in the world
to be sweet-spirited and gentle is to live right. When David was not living right, lie was ready to kill
the man who had slain a little lamb ; lie himself had taken another man 's wife, and killed the man besides,
-that made him savage. Live right :-and you will have the charity, that Suffereth long and is kind.
Have the home as beautifil as you ean make it. If you are a husband, praise your wife, piraise her 'oks
even if site is ratiher homely. Praise her cooking though it choke'you. Give her the same love-li R at
tention that you gave her then you were hamiding her in and out, sending boulets and bonbons antd
Writing leir reams of potiy, on gilt-edged paper. If you are a wife. praise your husband:-tell him he
is the best husband you ever had, no matter how I many you have had. He careful of what von eat. Be
ware I of minee-pie with a crisp on top. a sodden one beneath, and untiild horrors het ween. Take )leityi
of' sleep. The worildt is goinig eriazy for lack of sleep. it want 's fresh. widle-a watke people in the hibit if
