A little el!ov loans upon your knee;
Your tired knee that has so much to

Vrom underneath a thatch of tangled
Perhaps you do not heed the velvet
Of warm, moist lingers folding yours

You do not prize this blessing over

AVe are so dull and thankless and too
To catch t he sunshine, till itslips away.
And now It seems surpassing strange
That, while I wore the badge of mother
I did not kiss more oft and tenderly,
The little child that brought me only
And if, some night when you sit down
You miss the elbow from your tired
The restless, curly head from off your
The lisping tongue that chattered con

And ne'er would nestle in your palm
If the while tleet into the grave had

1 wonder so, that mothers ever fret
At littlo children clinging to their
Or that the foot-prints, when the days
Are ever black enough to make them
If 1 could find a little muddy boot,
Or cap, or jacket, on my chain her lloor,
If I could kiss a rosy , restless foot,
And hear it patter in my home once
If I could mend a broken cart to-day,
To-morrow make a kite to reach the
There is no woman in (iod's world

Jiut oh! the da'nty pi 1 1 w next my ou

My singing hirdling from its nest is
The little boy I used to kiss is dead.
A great man once said that frinnd
sliip is the cadence of divine melody
melting in the heart. The bear,
thiiig a man possesses are true
friends: he who lacks them, though
he be rich in stocks and bonds, is
nevertheless poor. Friendship is
indeed the "master passion." It is
the moulder of character, the de
stroyer of base selfishness, the recti
fier of warped inclinations, iit-.tter
be without gold than without
friends, for what the former cannot
buy the latter can give, and what
the iirst cannot accomplish the lat
ter can do. True friendship purillas
the heart. It offers sfaint to the
rebellious passions, hate, jealousy,
envy, malice. It binds men by ties
stronger than steel. It links soul
with soul, life with life, and often
destiny w:th destiny. The true
friend "stieketh closer than a
brother ;" the tie binding him is of
the spirit not of the flesh. Ex
change. J1I1:KK YOl'K r ELI.OW-MAN.

If you should see a fellow-man with
trouble's Hag unfurled,
An' lookin' like lie didn't have a friend
in all the world,
Go up an1 slap him on the back, an'
holler, "How d'you do?"
An' grasp his hand so warm he'll know
he has a friend in you;
Then ax him what's ahurtin' him, an'
laugh his cares away,
An' tell h-m that the darkest night is
Just before the day.
Don't talk graveyard palaver, but say
it rightout loud;
That Uod will sprinkle sunshine in the
trail of every cloud.
The Popular Matinee Jacket.
Dressing sacque time is upon us.
The dressing sacque is not only al
luring to woman, but also to man. It
half reveals, half conceals, the
figure in a way altogether charm
ing. In short, this little garment is
a moral agent, for without par
taility it hides the detects of a too
fat figure and shows oil the grace
ful lines and curves of a perfect one,
and that in itself is sufficient to
keep the woman who wears a dress
ingsucquein good humor. Uutthat
is not all; it keeps the wearer cool
without in the least giving her an
appearance of carelessness. The
dautiest and most practical sacques
are made of exquisitely fine dimity,
nainsook or wash silk, ami are sim
ple or elaborate, according to the
purchaser's taste, or, more properly,
her pocketbook. One of the swell
est designs is made entirely of fine
white Hwiss insertion combined
with black lace insertion. This
would especially please the men
folks, who claim that there is some
thing about the combination of
black and white which gives the
sttidest woman a coquettish air
quite irresistible, provided she isn't
old and ugly. Too elaborate dress
ing sacques are neither comfortable
Matinee jackets of fine French
lawn, liberally trimmed with white
lace, are shown ready-made in the
shops. Washable house Jackets are
to have a great vogue. V ery smart
and ecouom.cal little affairs are
made in fancy cambric, muslins and
ether cheap washable materials.
The favorite etyle for a wash jacket
is the one that has shaped side
pieces and a double box pleat down
the back to hold the jacket to the
form, while the front hangs loose
from a short yoke. Down the front
and all around the bottom there is a
frill of the material of the jacket or
gome contrasting color, or lace, or
The summer dressing sacque of
vhite nainsook, showing the finest
of handwork in tucks and nar
row bands of lace. These are
"Frenchy," and though the patri
otic woman may be frowning at
things that are marked "French,"
she still admits that none can fur
nish examples of fine hand work
like that of the French seamstress.
The wearing of fine white jackets
is one fashion that with the French
woman nevr changes. There are
unlimited possibilities i,i the trim
ming of white cambric and lawn
negligees. I do not think anything
prettier or more suitable for sum
mer time wear can be devised than
these washable little jackets. There
is a great fancy for thein also in soft
whites, wash silk or those very deli

from home, will this season, for
reasons, of economy, spend the sum

lieves that her family will be hap
pier and more comfortable than
they have been for many summers.
This woman is possessed only of
very moderate means and her stay
out of town for several months
every year is not accomplished
without a good deal of planning and
forethought. Her plans for- this
summer have been easily adjusted,
and I fancy that this busy little
woman, for one, will be hard to get
away from home in. future She
showed me the other day what she
calls her summer parlors. A1 her
house is a modest one, there is but
one parlor and a dining-room
divided from the parlor by a hall
and just a scrap of h library. From
the floors of all these rooms and the
hall, the carpets have been taken,
cleaned and stored uutil next fall,
by the people who cleaned them and
will put them down nexfc.fall. Cool
looking blue and white matting, not
over light, has taken the place of
the carpets, and scattered over the
floors are blue and white and a
pinkish terra cotta and white rugs
in the jute Japanese variety. All
the upholstered furniture is covered
witli linen slips and the wooden and
wicker pieces are supplied with
cushions covered inbr it washable
fabrics. All thn ,n curtains

woolen draperies at doors have all
been taken down. The dining-room
tabie stands in the middle of the
floor, with a blue and white denim
cover over it and a low basket of
growing ferns in the center.
The tiny front porch of this house
city houses are only blessed w'th
such is screened all round with the
cheap bamboo roiling screens that
can now be had at any of the lead
ing shops. Two little wicker chairs,
a low wicker tea table and a small
wicker couch, with cushions, and
pots of growing plants set about,
make this a de'ijhtful little corner
in the afternoon as it is, fortunately,
on the shady 6ide of th house. The
mistress of all this informed me
that the cost of her summer fittings
up was not one-third what a trip
out of town would be, "and," she
added, "I am quite sure we will be
a lot more comfortable than we
would be out of town, and quite as
healthy, too. We will take our out

L.ITTLK POLITE POINTS.
What Ethinrtte lteiiulres on a Variety
f Everyday Occasion.
Gentlemen do not take off their
hats to each other. This is a
courtesy reserved for the ladies.
If one gentleman meets another,
the latter being with a lady, the
former does not merely nod, but
will take oh his hat, so that the
salute may seem to include both the
gentleman and the lady.
Ladies do not rise to shake hands
with a gentleman, nor do they shake
hands at all with a new acquaint
ance, even when an introduction
takes place. An inclination of the
head and a few pleas tnt words are
all that are necessary. A gentle
man never extends his hand to a
lady flrt. This would be regarded
by a woman of good society as pre
sumption and might warrant her
snuboing the unfortunate transgres
sor. A lady may shake hands with
another lady when an introduction
takes place, but it Is not a necessary
act and is often omitted.

A married lady may chaperon

Ladies are not entitled to use
crests; therefore after the death of
a husband or father the crest would
be discontinued. This rule, how
ever, is often disregarded by ladies
who are otherwise exceptionally
strict in matters of etiquette.
Never raise or move the eyebrows
perceptibly. It always appears like

VOICE OF TIIK SOUTHLAND.
A Iteiuitilul Tribute to the Noble Women
of DIxIh'h Land.
The Columbia (S. C.) State of a
recent date contained the following:
" 'Loving laden with flowers the
desolate mourners go,' is a line from
Judge Flitch's beautiful tribute to
Southern women on the Mississippi.
And sosuiely as the seasons come and
go do woibeh gather to pay tribute
to ths soldier dead. The tender
hand that waved adieu in '61 is now
the wrinkled palm; and the bloom
ing cheek of those eventful days is
crossed by many lines; life's sun
rays slant far past noon ; but on this
day of days, when Southern woman
hood does reverent homage at the
shrine of its dead, the old hark
again to the sound of the ringing
bugle and to the stirring drum-beat
wben the boys in gray marched
forth to battle. Virginia became
the Southern cemetery. And in the
long, sad interlude Rachel has
mourned for her children.
"It matters little that the issue
has been sealed forever. The Sou'h
has long ago accepted that fast, and
from desolation has gathered
strength. Hut there is above it a
greater fact, and that is the sacred
duty of the citizen to defend the
home of his fathers. The boys in
gray did that until almost none were
left to wield a sabre or shoulder a
market. So that the tomb of a Con
federate soldier is more august in
in its stern and uninviting aspect
than a mausoleum. It is not
merely a shrine of liberty; it is
liberty enshrined. The men who
dared all, fought with all strength
and lost all, can never cease to be
heroes in the sight of their country
men. "The S-nith has not forgotten; the
Soutli cannot iorget. the rancor
has faded like a mist; the mad echo
of passion has moaned itself still.
Hut patriotism, reverence and love
remain, and love distilled in the
magic vessel of memory, sheds its
fragrance on every grave that holds
a faithful soldier of the cause.
"Itstirs the heart; it brings tears
to the eyes ; it makes the blood surge
in the veins to witness the beautiful
ceremony of loving hands wreath
ing those graves with garlands; it Is

women a right none denies her a

Upon her, whether in victory or de
fat, the blow has fallen. When
the country rang with tiding of vie
tory, she thought of husband, son or
brother that had bought it with his
blood; and when sad faces told
of the defeat, she still counted the
cost and rekoned fearfully on a loss
that time could not repay. And now
it Is her hatid that decks the graves
and her heart that treasures deepest
the memories of the dead.
"The country is again at war; the
city is filled with troops mustering
for fight, and there may be more
heroes a"d more graves. The act of
the women to-day shows that no
man who does his duty will fail of
recognition by the hearts of his
country-women. He will live green
in memory, whether he is a General
or the humblest private in the
