"A felloe, just llko ine,
Should axle little ?hl to wed?
\Vtiot would the answer be?"'
l!he maiden drops her liquid eyes?
Her smiles with blushes mingle?
'?Why seek I lie bridle halter when
You may live on, sur, chiglor"'
Aiid then ho spoke?''Oh, bo my bride,
I ask you once again ;
You are the e'Vrpriva of my soul,
And there shall ever rein.
"1*11 never the of kindly deeds
To win your gentle heart,
And saddle be the shaft that vends
Our happy lives apart'."
Upon her checks the maiden felt
The mantling blushes glow?
She" took him for her faithful hrdi??

A woman in a neighborhood is only
excelled by another woman. She
can love truer or hate worse than the
men of ordinary calibre.
She can make a home a little heav
en or a little hell, on less capital
than other business can be carried on.
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 gel
away with a set of spoons.
She can kiss another woman sweet
er,-and then talk about her worse
Chan one of these Reform Republi
cans can talk about the President.
And sbc knows more by intuition
of all the alfairs of the neighborhood
than Grant knows about his relations
Or the poskfllcc presents he has re
She can be nicer to a woman she
hates than scallawng politician is t'
a negro before he has voted.
She can walk further to display a
new dress than a loyal or disloyal
contraband could travel for chickens
hi the night.
And love her?if she loves a man
she will stick to him longer than the
Dent family will to the immortal
Like dollars, good women arc hard
to get, hard to keep, bolheisome to

How ean we get along without them ?
A Preposterous Story.
A jocular Senator from the West,
according to the Washinton corres
pondent of the Boston Jeurnnl, tells
a verygocd story about another Sen
ator from a Southern State. The
latter began life as a brukeman on a
railroad, and by industry and fore
sight lias accumulated a fortune and
high political honors. Senator Thur
nian, wl ile speaking, usually holds
his eye-glasses in one hand and a
huge red handkerchief in the other.
Ho blows a sounding blast on his
nasal organ in the midst of a speech
quite as natural as Senator Dawes
looks up at the gullerics every limn,
he addresses the Vice-President. 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 speaking. He blew his
nose with such vigor that, the report
could have been beard in the Secreta
ry's ofllco. The sleeping Senator
was awakened by tlie noise, and,
leaping to his feet, grasped a chair
by the side of the sofa ami twisted ii
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
*??rd "wife" comes from? It is
thd Word in which the English
and Latin language conquered the
French and Greek. I hope 'he
French will some day get a word for
it instead of that dreadful word
femme. But what do you think it
comes from? The great value of
Saxon words is that they mean some
thing. Wife means "weaver." You
Jnri3t either be housewives or house
moths ; remember that. In the drop
sense, you must cither weave men's
fortunes or embroider them, or feed
upon and bring them 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
stretches far around her, better than
houses ceiled with cedar and painted
with vermilion, sheding its quiet light
far foi those' who else are homeless.
This I believe to be the woman's tine
place and power.?Ituxlein.
Never be sorry for any generous
thing that you ever did, even if it
wns betrayed. You cannot olford to
keep on the safe side by being moan.
Our exchanges have a great (ten.
to say about "editorial ability."
What a country editor really needs
is the ability to live on four shillings
a week, and smoke his own cigars.
A (Vlothbr's Love. \
A mother's lovo ! How lightly do }
wo often value and how little do we
appreciate u kind loving mother?
What a fountain of pure unsellish lovo
liscs up from her generous heart?
Who will love us as a mother does?
And \\ho will suffer, work, and toil
for its, depriving themselves of every
comfort, in order that wo may be
well cared for and spared all anxie
ties ami cares of life? No ono but
"mother." Wo may have a kind fa
ther, gentle and loving brothers and
sisters, and, when \V2 grow older, and
leave the paternal roof,-we may be
fortunate in securing a kind husband
or gentlo wife, and may bo blessed
with dutiful and happy children; but
no one ever excises towards us the
same kind, patient love and gentle
forbearance as a mother. How kind
we should bo to her! We should
.share her axleiios, lighten the burden
of her cares, and stiive to make her
declining years happy. It is a debt
ns well as a duty we owe to her, and
it is happily in the power of all to
pay it. Think < f the many days "A'\
weary toil and the years of unselfish
love and patient devotion sho 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 Sirs. Senator Gordon attends
the sessions of the 'Senate, and the
keenest interest with which she
watches the debates. Ono of the
' party said that sho is so devoted to
her husband that she goes with him
everywhere. During the war she
took her two little boys, one alinos"
a bab}-, ami lived with her husband
in camp, following him into battle, in
fact, sharing all the danger with him.
S-Mic bad an ambulance at her service,
and it was In that she used to follow
11itu. When he was so sciiously
wounded, she had her ambulance
driven right into the battle-field, and
him pulled out from the dead and
wounded and placed in the ambulance,
and she drove ofT with him. All ef
Lhis was done under the heaviest fire,
and the cover of the ambulance was
pierced with bullot-holes. Some one
said to her: "How could you have
the nerve to do it ?" " Why," replied
Mrs. Gordon, "I 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 lias
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 200
trees thus grafted, from which he
gathered a lino crop of superior fruit
last summer. He claims for this
plan decided advantage in 'he coast
region, and bases his opinion upon
results. The difficulty hitherto ex
perienced by those who have experi
mented with gi al'ting the peach upon
j the plum has arisen from the fact that
j the peach is a more rapid grower
I than the plum, and hence is liable
j lo break oil at I lie point of the junc
j tion. This seems to have been over
come by using life'quick growing va
rieties of the plum; It is a common
practice to graft the plum upon the
poach.?Southern Entbrpi isc.
Think of It.
Some fifty years ago, a gang of
Belgian miners, angry with another
set of underground workers, set a
mass of coal on Ore to smoke out
their comrades. How well they suc
ceeded, I jL the record of half a centu
ry tell. Years have passed away, a
generation has laded, the angrv pas
sion of those who thus .-.ought revenue
has become a thing of the past; but
the liie started in that mine long auto,
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 lire which they kindle.
A Tcrriblo Crime.
ClMCiNATTl, January 10.?An Illi
nois dispatch says that Tuesday eve
ning three men, named McFarlnnd,
Patterson and Malony, cntoieel the
house of an old man named Nevil,
near Pccantonic, drugged him to a
tree, tied him, and then pounded him
until bo 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 r" The prisoner looked w istfully
toward the door and remarked that he
would like lo say "good evening, if
it would be agreeable to the compa
ny." But they wouldn't let him.
