Did you ever observe how caroful young men are to assist girls over fences 7 And did you ever notice that after marriage tho wives may get over fences if they can, -go through creep-holes, jump from the top rail unassisted, alighting on their beads or feet, or auy way so they cat over at all 7 This nil means something there is a reason for it, and who's to blamo 7 I never thought much about this, till lately, and then it was brought about Dy a little incident. Mr and Mrs Grimes and baby G rimes were going through our back yard and out across tbo meadow. Xho girls and I were sitting by tho south window sewing, and Lizzie said, "Now let us watch and sea bow they do when they como to the rail fence. I say Lanky (his namo's Melanotbon) will go over with ono stride and leave his spouse to scratch over like an old coon climb ing a gum tree." I said, "Oh. he's kind! and you'll sco if be don't swing ber over superbly, and with moro case and grace than ho ever did when bo was her gay cavalier-bcau." We watohed eagerly. Tboy camo to tho fence. Lank sprang himself and went over like a hugs pair of tongs, hardly brushing tbo nap of his jeans trowsers, and then with ono muscular arm ho swung baby Grimes after him, to tho noisy delight of the very young man. Hold ing tbo baby by the hand he went on uncon cernedly, while tho little wife walkod up and down the fenco from one corner to another, feeling of tho tilting top rails, and trying her foot on the slanting, suspicions places, until at last sho found a corner that she thought she could got over. Just as shi drew her bulky little body up, the rail rolled enough to scare her, and sho sought another place, and clutched bold nervously, aud, as Jiizzio said, sho really did climb like i coon. Thero was nothini; craceful in the ooera tion at all, for her skirts got under her feet, nnd tho more sho fought for freedom, tbo more tenacious wcro the troublesome skirts ; and when sho did get over, nko plumped down with a thud like a mammoth pumpkin that bad been frozen and thrown out. A strong man, or a robust clrl whoso muscles aro liko springs of steel, can get over a fenco easily and graoafully, but a woman of middlo ago loses her elsstioitr. nnd she docs not do such things with a grace that is very attractive Then tbe girfti and I talked, and because nono ot mi were married, and knew, we wondered why huabaads who were so polite to tbe uirls, always neglected to show them any very marked attention after they became husbands, nnd the pretty maidens were trans formed into wives. Has not tbe poor ores turo any claim on their polite attentions after she promises to love, honor and obey, to take him for better or for worse, to patch, darn. make, mend, cook, wash, bear and forebear, to put up with his moods, endure his com plaining, sootho bis sorrows, and be all In all to him I Wo thought it was not fair, and we said bo, very decidedly, too, I told them if I wcro married, and John neglected me, he would do it at bis peril ; that I would be kind, aud polite, and attentive, and hold him right on tho very line on which hi had waigeu When a lover, no matter it it wag strung as full of bows and smiles and pretty mannerisms as tbe beads on a rosarv. While we wero talking, a' neighbor earn iu, unu we torn iter wuat we were saying Mns. F. V. I'oivints, tod what tho thrco pairs of h!to ejes meant. 8i.6Uugl.eil and said, "Well, la diss, you needn't make calculation! about what you will do, or jou may una itiat you have reckoned Very unwisely. Now my man would let mo climb a fence without taking a hand out of his pocket to assist me over, and jou know he's called a gen tlcman. When I was a bashful girl, I used to wish ho'd not offer to help me, but he was diitreisiogly polite then, and would hold both my hands In trying to assist me, while my clothes would get under my feet and tanglo thero most provokingly, Ob, you'll got your eyo tcoth cut If you marry any of these smiling fellows who Is always showing his whito teeth, and touching ljis hnt, and bowing to tho right and left' so lav ishly, i used to thinlc as you do, but I Bare gotten bravely oisr theso sentimental, ro mantia notions. I believe mv husband loves me after a clever, selfish sort of fashion, if it don t jntorlere wjtb his ease and corolort in any way." And here mv nciehbor laughed most heartily at something whioh oamo to her remembrance "I've half a mind to tell you an Inoident, girls," said she. "I believe I will, if ltosy won't go and stick; it in tho papers. 1 just want you to see how like a glittering soap bubb'lo one of my pretty little romantio whims btoko, one time, and made mo sco a Kood deal clearor, and helped tne to become a more practical woman. 'It was a few years after we wcro mar ried ; we wero poor and lirod in the village then. I took in washing and cooked for s boarding club, and sewed for tbe neighbors, and turned out to help women whitewash, and paper, and cook for parties, nnd indeed, r ifl ii t - I I-- it i am ait l coma to ncip mate a imog. pi husband wasn't very forchandd, nnd as Jscl Hunnels used to say, ho had been tenderly reared.' "I was a novel reader, and my head was full of things about heroic wives, and onca 1 thought ot a plan that was just liko story, so I put it in practice. "My husbmd had bought a cow aud couldn't pay for it i ho cave his note for forty dollars and mannced to keep tho inter est paid on it. That was a common way of his, to buy things, make a payment or two, and then in tho end forfeit tho property. Well, I went to work to pay for tho cow and not let him know it. In less than a year, by dint of hard scratching, and saving a little at a time, I was enabled to lift tho note. 1 hen camo tho hour of swoct surprise. I knew when I laid tho noto in his bands, and he looked at tho back of it and saw that I bad paid tho face of it in four payments, he would clasp mo iu his arms, aud stammer out through tears of emotion, 'my darling wire ! my jewel ! my own beloved ono ! thank Qod for tho gift of such a brave littlo wife !' That was tho way they did in novels, and 1 thought it would be so charming to be a littlo heroine myscll. "My husband sat by tho lamp cutting his nails, when, with beating heart and height encd color, 1 softly laid my hand on his shoulder, put my face down besido his, and held tho open note before his eyes, siyiug, 'see here, love !' Ho looked at it, sniffed a littlo snort through his noss, and slowly said, "Well- that s all right so lar as 1 can see;' and went on trimming his horny, black nails. I stood still a littlo bit, almost pcU titled, but there was no need of waiting for any of tho beautiful demonstrations 1 had so kindly imagined ; I slid my poor brown hand off his shoulder, and went off to tho bedroom, buried my face in tho pillow, and cried away the last cobweby romance, that was let c. There was never a thank for alt my self-dc nial and close manacinz and hard work Sinco then ho's Tom, aud I'm Tom's wilo and maid-servant, and I eschew romance and patch breeches, and take thiogs coolly and practically, ibatsnow it is, girls." Forthe Vervokt Fikhir. The Other Side. There has been so much said about the duties of women as regards making homo happy, and so little about what the men ought to do, that I will veoturo to express my opinion in regard to it. .Now it seems to be the prevailing idea that if tho home is not happy that the wife is all to blame, but 1 cannot see wby the husband ought not to have as much responsibility as tho wile, 1'or bow is a woman to make a borne happy if tbo husband persists in nndinglault, and making himself and every ono else miferablo And bow, I would liko to know, is a woman always to wear a smiling faco if she has not anything to mako her smile. 1 would like to have one of these model wives that I read about, that always succeed in making thei home a second paradiso and thoir husbands willing servants, have men to live with that I have seen. For I am suro if they did not have patience exceeding even that ot Job they would sometimes retaliate. 1 know somo men who seem to think that they can not show their authority at homo it they d not succeed in making their family both dread and fear them. Ihey arc always croa and out of sorts when at home, never speak ing without it is to find fault and when asked a question, if thoy answer it at all, it is with a snap. If anything goes wrong with them out of doors, thoy seem to deem it their duty to scold about it in tbe house. In short they act as though thoy thought their wives were mado expressly to scold at. How, would liko to know, is a homo to be mado happy with such a man as this for an in mate 7 1'ou may think, dear friends, that this is pictured from fancy. Not so J it is a faithful portrait ot many lives. uvai.nl' No homo can be happy with a cross per son in H whether it is a man or a woman but retaliation will not help tho matter at all it wijl only "add fuel to tho flame." We think the best way to reform a cross man would bo to take advantage of some timo wben be is in a pleasant mood, aud tell him how frottcd and grieved you aro, and how disagreeable he makes himself in the eyes of everybody, yourself in particula when ho indulges in his tits ol croKsnesn When you have como to a perfect under standing upon this point if he gets cross am scolds, let Mm do all the talking, and the echo of his own words will shame hi in into deccDoy, It may take a long time, but huvo patience and keop your own temper, It is better to bo "sinned against than sinning, For tht Vdrmont Finnan, What Is Life, It is a question so deep, so comprehensive so far beyond tho mind of man that the largest capacity cannot fully comprehend its meaning. Yes ; what is life, but to prepare lor an endless cxistenco beyond, in thooouut less ages of eternity, And what then eternity, if we cannot comprehond what lifo is 7 This world is but a field of labor, vineyard where each must put forth great effort to accomplish good, must bear and forbear, must pass through hourly and daily t.i.l.

Tho housekeeper who really gets the good out of life as sho goes along, is tho ono who is bclorehandcd with her work, it is such a comfort to keep things even and finished up, but it is a luxury known to but low of us. It is this worry to "catch up" that tears down tho system, and brings tho crow.fcot ol care to the eyes long beforo ago would do it. When summer is drawing near What a com fort it is to a busy mother to throw open her wardrobe or clothespress, and sco a bright row ot pretty prints aud muslius all ready for tho littlo wearers, as soon as tho warm weather comes. One Can easily imagine a mother going occasionally to such a closet to tako a peep at her handiwork, and rclresh her eyes by tbe sight. Now this happy stato of affairs does not often occur iu households whero tho mother is ever on tbe look out for ovcrv new whim of fashion, so much remodelling and uu making goes on then?, that something is al ways ou hand, and usually wanted "right away" by somebody. The forc-handcl homo mother is satisuod when a garment is well mado to let it remain so until she has got somo service out of it. When it is made over, it is becauso it has begun to bear tho marks of age, and sho desires to renew its youth. Dho chooses tor pattorns those that aro not in tho extreme- of any stylo, but carefully selects what tho leading fashiou houses call the "permanent sty I en." Thero arc some sorts ot twenties, basques and even overskirts, that uover look unfashionable, though worn for several successive seasons. If you wish to avoid hurry and gat tho good of an article, choose theso styles iu making up your outut. Make it a law of your houso to avoid needless work. Neither do it yourself nor require it of a domestic. Never scrub floor or wash your windows, when they aro not soiled, just because the regular day fur it has como around. This is a fully of many housekeepers who nro moro mco than wise and who fail utterly in appreciating tho great ond of existence here. What n grov elling view of life it must be to regard its chiet good to bo touud iu scrubbing ! Meat nes.4 and comfort nro rarely found in theso homes which are forever "under water." If you would not havo your work your task-master, simplify your sowing. Do not put on tiresome ruHlcs which must be clab orately ironed fifty times a year, when t mat plain hem or bias fold, or any Hat trim ming would auswer as well. The timo saved in this simple trimming is no trifle, when tho wbolo year is taken into account. Simplify your cooking, also, and perfect a few simple dishes, rather tlnu claborato many difficult ones that aro not half so wholesome. Your family will bo tho gainers, and you will find tho timo saved buthcient to help lorward many other needful pieces of work. The Model Sick-Boom. Tbo following is an extract from I'rofossor A. it. Uroshy s excellent lecture on"Lommon oenso in tho Sick-Uoom : The room which is selected for a Bick room should be as far removed as possible from those ordinarily occupied by tho family in order that tho patient may have tho bou efit of perfect quiet. It should bo largo airy, well lighted, aud, if possible, have i sunny exposure. Tho wall of the sick-room is a pretty im portant matter to tho pattenta. it it is cov ered with one ol those dreadfully varifgatcd papers, which aro regarded as ornamental it will bo found, especially if tho patient is suffering from any disease in which thero is abnormal exaltation ol tho brain, that is a source of great annoyance, mid may even bo positively injurious. ior us Ins eyes run over thoso pictures, ho will fauoy that hu sees images of various kind?, such as angels and demons alternating; indeed theso figures will nssumo every conctivablo form, nnd hu becomes thoroughly worriod in tho uttcmpt ts disentangle tho contusion, Tho paper coveting the wall should have a uniform, neutral tint, such as a light green a delicato buff, or a very delicate elute color a light green, perhaps, is as agreeable to tho eyes as any color that can bo selected, nnd it rests tho oyes with a refreshing monotony Such a uniform tint tends to "healthy etu pidity," and this leads to repose. Tho model sick-room should never bo carpeted, but ordinarily should havo a hard wood floor, and this should be oiled and vur nished. Upon suoh a floor may bo spread as many pieces of carpeting, rugs and mats a9dcsirablo, ibeso may be placed in Iront of the bed, over tho parts which tho nurso traverses while pcrlonning his or her duties. at the doors, ivo. r.acu morning theso oa bs quietly slid along tho floor, taken out ana thoroughly shaken ami aired. Alt thoy are removed, tho floor can bo wiped off with a damp cloth or sott brush, ami when it is dry, tho rugs, Ao., may be replaced If the floor is managed in this manner, what was known among tho old writers us tho materia morbi certainly is not likely to no cumulate, and that is an essential item of consideration in the management of the sick. room. Tho windows should bo so arranged as to admit abundance ol light. Jstglit is a normii stimulus to tho human body, and wa bav no good health without it: you can not grow healthy cabbages in a dark cellar, nor can you any more easily cure invalids without the influence of suullcht. Thero nro somo acute diseases, during'tho progress of which it may be necessary to temper tho light, but it snouia never uo entirely sum out, iur u u is you removo Irom the body one ot its im portant natural stimuli. Tho windows never should bo surrounded by tapestry or decorations of auy kind that are mado of woolen stuff, A plain white shade Is all that is rcquislto to temper tho light and cut oil outside objects Irom th patient's view, and the window-frame should be freo from lambrequins, hangings, o. which may becomo Impregnated with tho germs of disease. Somo one truly says that it is not what we eat, but what we digest, that makes us lat; it is not what we read, but what wo re member, that makes us learned ; it is not What wo earn, but what wo save, that makes us rich, "I take my tex dis morning," said a col ored preacher, "from dat portion ob do Sorip ters whar de Postal Paul points his pistol to de i'esions."

"Then it Is the very time tor you to be pleasant and holpful. Mother was awake a great deal In tho night with tho poor baby." iSlnggie made no reply. She put on her bat ami walked Into the garden, liuta new idea went with her. "The very timo to bo hctpfullnnd pleasant is when othfar people aro cross.

Tho little hat and sack wero brought, and tho baby was soon ready for his ride. I'll keep him as foug as be is good," said Maggie : "and you must Ho on tho sofa and get n nap wheu I am gone. You look dread ully tired." ihe kind words and tho kiss that accom panied them wcro almost too much for tho motbor. Tho toars roso to her eyes, and her voioe trembled as she answered, "thank you dearie, it will do mil a world of good if you can keep him out an hour, aud tho nir will do him good, too. iHy head aches badly this morning."

Napoleon married Josephitio in 1701), sho being then thirty. thrto years old and ho twenty-seven. Tho marriago was a fortunato ouc for him, as Ii is own words testify. "Tho circumstance of my marriago with Madame do lleauharnais," ho says, "placed mo ou proper looting with tho party necessary to my plan of fusion, ono of tho first principles ol my administration. . . , without mv who l suould ucver have established any natural relation with that class." Another declaration of his agrees perfectly with this idea : "1 win only battles Josephine wins mo all hearts." It was a proud boast of Joscphino's that she never kept any ono waiting half a minute where punctuality do' pcuded upou herself; but this quality of re fined breeding was signally wantiug iu Na poleon. When the established hour for din tier at Malmaihou was six o'clock, and though etlquetto forbado any ouo to approach tho table be l ore the announcement ot tlso head of tho liouss, ho often failed to appear beforo tovcu, eight, or even ten o clock.

Know ing tho timo necessary for the emperor dine, the shrewder ones took care to ditto advance, Josephine onco confessed this the dinner-table, much to tho amusement of tho emperor. The empress always quitted tho tatiie with jNapolcon ; but, with her never lading consideration lor tho comfort of othor sho commando,! the rest, by a gesture, as eno rose, to remain.

Kim and Front streets, Cincinnati, 0., sny i "In our neighborhood a number of teamsters are using the Centaur Llaluent. They pronounce it euperlorlo anything they haro ever usod. We sell as high as four to flro dntcn bottles per month to owners of horses nn 1 mules," We haro volumes of testimonials describing cures or sprain., hicks, galls, )oll-orll, hlg-head, and eren foundeis, which aro littlo loss than marrels. No owner of an animal can alTord to he without a bottlo of Cen taur Liniment, which any day may prore woith twenty times Its cost. Bold orery where, but prepare! only at tho Labora toryof J. II.

'jpilll liljlicstalm of the great minds of nil ages lias been claulllcatlon. To bring things of llfo Into syste matic order was the goal nf our lamented Agassis In trying to arrange Iu classes widely different created beings. Others liko Limit putorderlntoplants,herbg, shrubs ami trees. Some, again, like llaoon, Kont and Fichte hare grouped tlio forms and produtts of the Intelleott men of tho Humboldt stamp hare grappled with the problem of all existence and brought oritr out ol previous chaos. Tho most epltomlted kind of classlllcatlon Is that of human exlstenco Into work, play and religion. Well, In this busy land of ours we alt know enough of work the lumberman on his raft, the farmer in tho Held, the hands In the factory, tho storekeeper behind the counter, the lawyer at the bar they all aro at work, and there Is generally sufficient of that commodity In this world. Of religion wo will say nothlns, as that branch of existence has boon productlro of moro hard kaosks to tbe human racblhan any other subject, and still keeps large potlonsof tho great brotherhood of nations estranged from each other. Bat there Is asubject the third In our system of exlstenco of which we can spoaV without fiur ofdl'sonslon, and that Is play. To bo sure, what somo men ctll play differs! much from other kinds of play as wormwood from the honey of Ilymcttus. Look nt tho boy who, tugKing at the rope, with Jack Frost nipping his toes, drags tho heavy sled up tlio stoep hill for play 1 seo the baso ball player with calloused hands catchlug the deadly ball In play 1 notlco tho young man stilled by costly nnd fetid tobacco smoke wasting the fruits of his labor In playing billiards or ton-pins by tbe hour. Is that play? Let us haro ery littlo ol such kinds of play, If you please, forltliiiolresagooddealofhard labor. Other kinds of play require no bodily exertion, liko cards, check ers, etc, but ther fall to bo a comfort to a great many. Now, our essential attributo of play must be comfort and rost. Wlmro can greater comfurt be found, or sweeter rest enjoyed, than In muslo 1 To liossoss tho threo ossoatlal attributes of music, pleasure, oomfort and rest, tn the most enjoyable form, would tie to hare the Thomas cono ert troupe right undor the olm trees In front ol one's hoase 1 but as the fairies havo gone to glory long ago, wo must needs think of something more feasible. Well, there Is one thing that can be done, and that Is to buy for your daughter a splendid PIA.ISTO, OF TIIK IIALLETT & CUMSTON mako, or one of thoso nice, melodious CABINET ORGANS OF THE Smith American Op Co. anl you will have a nerer failing loarce of pleasure iu your own house, realy at your bUHlo any moment you want it.
