A woman in a neighborhood is only

She can make a home a little heav

She can make a ten or hundred
dollar bill go up, O ! so quick.
She can drive a man out of a house
if her tongue be working all right,
quicker than Beast Butler could get

She can kiss another woman sweet

A Preposterous Story.
A jocular Senator from the West,
according to the Washinton corres
pondent of the Boston Journal, tells
a very gocd story about another Sen
ator from a Southern State. The
latter began life as a brakeman on a
railroad, and by industry and fore
sight has accumulated a fortune and
high political honors. Senator Tbur
man, wl ile speaking, usually holds
his eyeglasses in one hand and a
huye red handkerchief in the other.
He blows a sounding blast on his
nasal organ in the midst of a speech
quite as natural as Senator Dawes
looks up tit the galleries every timoi
he addresses the Yiee-Prosident. It
was an all-night session. The South
ern Senator was quietly sleeping on
a sofa in the cloak room. Mr. Th?r
man was .'peaking. He blew his
nose with such vigor that, the report
conld have been heard in tiic Secreta
ry's olllcc. The sleeping Senator
was awakened by tin; noise, ami,
leaping to his feel, grasped a chair
by the side of the sofa and twisted it
around until the author of the story
grasped him by the arm and brought
him to a realizing sense of his where -
What do yon think the beautiful
tword "wife" comes from? It is
the word in which the English
and Latin language conquered the
French and Greek. I hope 'he
French will some da}' get a word for
it instead of that dreadful word
femme. But wdiat do you think it
comes from ? The groat value of
Saxon words is that they mean some
thing. Wifo means "weaver." Yon
mnat either be housewives or house
moths ; remember that. In the deep
sense, you must either weave men's
fortunes or embroider them, or feed
upon and bring thctn to decay.
Wherever a true wife comes, home
is always around her. The stars
may be over her head, she glow-worm
in the night-cold grass may bo the
firo at her foot; but home is where
she is; and for a noble woman it
atrctches far around her, better than
houses ceiled with cedar and painted
with vermilion, ?beding ils quid light
far foi those who else are homeless.
This I believe to be the woman's tine
place and power.?Husk in.
Never be sorry for any generous
thing that you overdid, even if it
was betrayed. You cannot afford to
keep on the safe side by being moan.
Our exchanges have a great ffea
to say about "editorial ability."
What a country editor really needs
is the ability to live on four shillings

A Mother's Lovo. j
A mother's lovn i How lightly do i
wo often vnluo and how liltlo do we
appreciate a kind loving mother?
What a fountain of pure unscltish lovo
tises up from her generous heart?'
Who will lovo us as a mother does?
And who will sutler, work, and toil
for us, depriving themselves of every
comfort, in order that we may he
well cared for and spared all nnxie
lies and cares of life? No one but
"mother." Wo may have a kind fa
ther, gentle and loving brothers and
sisters, and, when ws grow older, and
leave the paternal roof,?wc may he
fortunate in securing a kind husband
or gcnllo wife, and may bo blessed
with dutiful and happy children ; but
no one ever excises towards us the
same kind, patient love and gentle
foibearancc as a mother. How kind
we should bo to her! Wc should
share heraxielies, lighten the burden
of her cares, and stiivc to make her
declining years happy. Ii is a debt
as well as a duly wo owe to her, and
it is happily in the power of all to
pay it. Think < f Iho many days 'A
weary toil and the years of unselfish
love and patient devotion she has
given to us, and then let us ask our
selves if we can do too much for
Mrs. Senator Gordon.
The Washington correspondent of
the Chicago Times, relates the follow
ing : "Some people were speaking
the other day of the regularity with
which fifrs. Senator Gordon attends
the sessions'of the Senate, and the
keenest interest with which she
watches the debates. One of the
party said lhat she is so devoted to
her husband lhat she goes with him
everywhere. During tho war she
look her two little boys, one almos'
a baby, and lived with her husband
in camp, following him into battle, in
fact, sharing till the danger with him.
She had an ambulance at her service,
and it was in that she used to follow
him. When he was so sctiously
wounded, she had her ambulance
driven right into the hulllc-field, and
him pulled out from the dead and
wounded and placed in the ambulance,
and she drove oil with him. All cf
this was done under the heaviest lire,
and the cover of the ambulance was
pierced with bullot-holcs. Some one
said to her: "How could you have
the nerve to do it?" "Whv," replied
Mrs. Gordon, "1 did not think any
more of it than I should of pulling
one of my boys out of the fire if he
had fallen in."
A gentleman in Bryan County has
adopted the plan of grafting the
peach upon the rapid growing varie
ties of plums with most gratifying re
sults. He has an orchard of 'JOT)
! trees thus grafted, from which he
gathered a fine crop of superior fruit
last summer, lie claims for this
plan decided advantage in 'he coast
region, and bases his opinion upon
results. The dilliculty hitherto ex
perienced by those who have experi
mented with grafting the peach upon
the plum has arisen from the fact that
the peach is a more rapid grower
than the plum, and hence is liable
to break oh*" at the point of the junc
tion. This seems to have been over
come by using theYpiick growing va
rieties of the plum. It is a common
practice to graft the plum upon the
peach.?Southern Ei?krpi isc.
Think of It.
Some Ii fly years ago, a gang of
Belgian miners, angry with another
set of underground workers, set a
mass of coal on fire to smoke out
their comrades. How well they suc
ceeded, lit the record of half a centu
ry tell. Years have passed away, a
generation has faded, tho angry pas
sion of those who thus nought revenge
has become a thing of the past; but
the file started in that mine long ago,
blazes on, and no earthly skill has yet
found the way to extinguish it.
Burning on, ever consuming, it is a
filling type of the unceasing power of
sin and passion, and of the never end
ing fire which they kindle.
A Terriblo Crime.
ClKClNATTi, January 10.?An Illi
nois dispatch says that. Tuesday eve
ning three men, named McFarland,
Patterson and Malony, enteied the
house of an old man named Nevil,
near Pccantonic, dragged him to a
tree, tied him, and then pounded him
until he was stunned and bleeding.
They then assaulted and outraged
Mrs. Nt.vil, aged 70, and her daugh
ter, aged 20. They were all arrested.
"Prisoner at tfio bar," said the
Judge, "Is there anything you wish
to say before sentence is passed upon
you?" The prisoner looked wistfully
toward the door and remarked that he
would like to say "good evening, if
iL would be agreeable to the compa
ny." But they wouldn't let him.
