11he shdows of night are meeping
Noft over the brightaens of day;
The lowerM of the wildwoe are wee piag
Farewell to the sun's parting may.
My vspirit i andering to thew, loe
In viesons ml gloriously bright; 1
Then whisper a blindag to me, loe
A bleaming, a his and good-night
In Heaven the pare stars ae malli.
Like angels' eye, watching me here;
And mask, the lone eat beguiling, p
Stms gently and low ona my ear.
My spirit is smiling on thee, love-
And murmaruna on mf deligt;
Then whisper a bherdag for a, love
A tbh'i ski w am l edaht
Teer usem sin sease t se bliang,
Bs dear through the tleveing anr,
And angels their pinions are bending
To catch the4ow breathing of prayer.
My spirit is praying for thee, love.
Heaven lothe all thy pathway i light;
TI e whisper a blessing to me, love-
A blessing, a kis and good-night
Isn't it strange that some men,
who will be kind and obliging to
their neighbors, gentlemanly and S
polite to otherladies, will be so rde ti
and cold and harsh at home, and g
perfect bears to their wives--erwab ti
bed, snappish, ungenerous and al- E
together unsocial and hateful? r
Does anybody know of any such h
men? Not that I wish to lay all h
the blame on man-kind, or con- b
demn theni eri naw not at all ti
There are plenty of good, noble a
men, but not quite enough. When I
they are so strong, and have so u
much power to do good, and win e
love, and bless their homes, why ti
dont they all do it? s
"Circumstances alter eases." 0
Some men's wives are trying ensgh e
to wear out the patience of Job: a
but then, in the- perversity of things 11
you wdil generally find a real bear n
of a man united to a frail, patient "
frbearing and forgiving wife. She P
is your wife, Mr. Bear, and the P
mother of your children, and pro
bably dependent on yon for a home '1
andu means, and ean't get away from p
you; so of course, she is in your a
power, and you can treat her just c
as you ehoose. But if you expect i:
her heart to bound with pleasure i
when she hears your footsteps, or a
to proffer you caresses, or torejoice m
in your presence, you are much mis- t
taken. She is human-neither more t
nor less. Please reverse your situ-I
ations and conditions. How much 1
r and how long would you bear such c
l treatment as you give her? You s
will inevitably be measured and s
weighed for just what you are, and
there is no help for it.--N. Y. dInider.

ey be called a ftich-ualist ?
