"Work!" 'tis the Master.a voice!
Oo forth at his command;
With powerful, earnest heart rejoice.
To lend a helping hand.
The vineyard He hath blessed
To-day requires thy care;
Christian! hast thou His name confessed.
Go, nnd thy life-work there!
Work in the morning light,
Life's golden season prize;
The clust'rlng buds and fruitage bright
.Shall cheer thy waiting eyes.
He who appoints thy place
Will send His sun and shower;
The needed blessings of His grace
To crown each passing honr.
Work when advancing day
Its genial warmth shall pour;
The Savior's presence by the way
Will failing strength restore.
Beneath the moon-tide beam
He'll give thee sweet repose.
And lead thee to the living stream
Whence heavenly comfort flows.
Work till the day's decline,
With steadfast heart and trne;
The present time alone ls thine,
-. And there ls much to do.
A harvest rich and rare
• The future will nnfold.
Oh! labor on and thon shalt share
Its wealth of bliss untold.
Work in the evening time:
Tbe close of day how bright,
When cheered by faith and hope sublime!
"At eve it shall be light;"
With heavenly vision clear,
Even at the setting sun
Tbe Master's voice shall greet thine ear,
His precious word, "Well done."

[When a daughter was born to Mrs. Judson,
the far-famed Fannie Forrester, at Maulmain,
where she resided with her husband, a mis
sionary of the cross, she penned the following
exquisite poem :—[
Ere last year's moon had left the sky,
A birdling songht my Indfan nest,
And folded, oh! so lovingly.
Her tiny wings upon my breast.
From morn till evetalng's purple tinge,
In winsome helplessness she lies,
Two rose leaves with a silken lringe
Shut softly on her starry eyes.
There's not in Ind a lovller bird;
Broad earth owns not a happier nest-
On, God, thou hast a fountain stirred.
Whose waters never more shall rest!
This beautiful mysterious thing,
This seeming visitant from heaven,
This bird, with immortal wing,
To me, to me, Thy hand has given.
The pulse first caught Its tl_y stroke.
The blood Its crimson hue, from mine;
This life, which I dared Invoke,
Henceforth Is parallel with Thine.
A silent awe ls in my room—
I tremble with delicious fear;
The future with its light and gloom.
Thine and eternity are here.
Doubts, hopes, in eager tumult rise;
Hear, oh, my God! one earnest prayer,
Room for my bird In Paradise,
And give her angel plumage there.
"Mr. Asher, Mr. Cole, Mr. Cole, my
old friend Tod Asher. And now gentle
men, that I have broken the ice, you
will please excuse me for a few minutes,
as I see I am wanted."
And the speaker, Harry Johnson, who
was a general favorite, turned smiling
ly away, and crossed the ball room to
where a group of ladies stood gayly
beckoning bim with their fans.
"Happy to make your acquaintance,
Mr. Cole," murmured Mr. Asher, in a
low musical tone.
"The pleasure is mutual, I assure you,"
politely replied the gentleman addressed
"besides, it is an odd conceit of mine,
hut you seem to me like an old friend.
Your face is strangely familiar."
"Indeed no; I think we have never

of the country. But come if you do not
intend to join the dancers, let us go to
the piazza where we can watch them
and bave a quiet chat."
"Agreed. Dancing is a bore and a ci
gar is a better companion than a lady.
Do you smoke?"
And as they seated themselves, Cole
produced a cigar, and offered one to his
The latter hesitated a moment, as if
uncertain whether to accept or decline
the invitation, then replied :
"Thank you I do not smoke at present.
My physician fofbids it. I am in rather
delicate health."
"So j should judge; you lopk any
thing but strong, and your complexion
looks as pale as a girls."
"Indeed!" and the speaker's voice
sounded rather contemptuous. "Do you
know that I consider that rather a com

Mr. Cole or you would not possess such
an opinion."
"Sisters, no—a mother, yes—in Heav
en. She was an angel on earth, Mr.
Asher, if ever there was one, but tbe
girls to-day are not like her. They are
but butterflies and care for nothing but
flirtations and fashions."
"| hope and believe that you are mis
taken, sir. Perhaps you liava not sought
for anything deeper than 'what a flirta
tion will reveal, and if so, how can you
blame the ladies for playing the Boland
to your Oliver?"
"Well every one to his liking, of
course the world is made up of opposites.
But, I freely confess that I look upon
the ladies as merely pleasant amusement
for an idle hour—nothing more. Why,
man, all they want is flattery. But at pre
sent I haye no time to waste on them,
for I have got pay hands full subjugat
ing the proudest beauty of them all—
naughty, lovely Nell A.herton. I wish
you could see her."
His listener smiled oddly, but replied
with eagerness:
"I wish J could. Can't you point her
out to me?"
"Oh, she's not here to-night; she is
off on a week's visit to some relative. If
she were present, I should not be here,
you may be sure. No, indeed! Pretty
Nell accepts no luke-warm attentions, I

"Think! Why, my dear boy, I'm sure
of it. I'd like to see the girl who coijld

not bear .0 have me ptfl of her J

"Well, and that surely must be pleas

bring her to my arms, and I will do it,
too. I'm sure of my game; but as for
love, pshaw!'—l don't believe in it."
"But, perhaps, she does," replied As
her, meaningly.
"Well, what of that? Girls have no
hearts to break, or if they have, a new
silk dress will speedily cure tbe worst
case of heartache ever known."
But in my case, I don't know but
what I shall marry Nell."
"She loves me and I should be rather
frond of such a handsome wife; besides
suppose I should be bitterly envied by
tbe village gallants for carrying off the
"But I should not marry her for love,
mind you, but out of consideration for
her father's money bags—ha, h__!"
"Really, your ideas are peculiar, Mr.
Cole, and I should like to converse fur
ther with you upon the subject, but just
at present tbat is impossible, as Harry
and I have an engagement which he
seems to bave forgotten; so I must re
mind him, and therefore bid.you good
And, bowing, he entered the parlor,
and shortly after his late companion saw
him issue therefrom arm in arm with
Harry Johnson, and together tbey went
quickly out of sight.
"Ob, Harry, cousin Harry. I shall
certainly die, I know I shall, It was
too ridiculous!" cried an unmistably
girlish voice.
And again a clear rippling laugh burst
from the lips of the one who was so late
ly introduced as Tod Asher.
"Don't Nell, for goodness sake! If
you predict such dreadful things, I'll
never again consent to aid you in any
more of your harum-scarum freaks. But
by all that is laughable how Cole will
be cut up when he discovers tbe identity
of my old friend Asher!"
And the young man joined in the girl's
infectious mirth.
"And to think," cried Nell still laugh
ing, "ofthe miserable creature's boast
ing to my very face that he would bring
Nell Atherton to his arms! Ugh! I
could have boxed bis ears then and
there, and the only thing that restrain
ed me was the knowledge that he would
make a fuss and then everybody would
have recognized me."
"I'm very glad you didn't, Nell; you
would have spoiled our denonment.—
And as Cole really needs taking down,
I'm not sure but that it may be a very

"All light. Nell, you're a trump. I ,

"Thanks, cousin mine; and now good

Nell. Why will you torture me thus ?"
"I torture you ? Positively you amuse

quite at her ease; while her suitor, com

He started, and gazed rather curious

I).vll's Weed or American Jute.
Tbere_is a weed growing in great pro
fusion in all tbe cnltivated fields of our
valley, particularly conspicuous in corn
fields after tbe stalks are cot and about
tbe corners of fences, wbicb bas been
recently discovered possesses a material
and marketable value, and wbicb prob
ably may become a cultivated staple to
add to tbe standard products now grown
by our farmers. Tbis weed, wben re
cognized, will strike tbe eye as familiar
ly as either tbe Jamestown or tbe mul
len. When mature, it bas a broad leaf
and slender stalk and grows to the height
of six feet, and in the fall bears a ribbed
pod about the siz. of a hickory nut,
filled with black seed. Tbe diameter of
the stalk is about half an . inch on the
average, nearly its entire length, and
wben dry is of light gray. It is covered
with a fiber of a light gray color, in
which its value consists, as this fiber is
what is called "American Jute," corres
ponding with flax or hemp, out cf
which bagging or ropes are made, and
the crude article is represented to be
worth as much as $8 per ton. With us
it grows wild as a wee 4, but if cultivat
ed the stalk could be enlarged to four
times the present size, and experience
might prove it to be a valuable adjunct,
when cultivated, to our present pro
From the Scientific American we take
the following valuable article on tbe
subject :—
"Emerson's definition of a weed, as
a plant whose uses had not been discov
ed, seems to be happily applicable tc
the Abutilon avicennce, politely known
as "velvet leaf," but called by Jersey
farmers "devil's plant." Gray describee
it as tall; leaves roundish heart-shaped,
taperfointed, and velvety; peduncles
shorter than leaf-stalks; corolla yellow;
pods 12 to 15, hairy, beaked; annual;
abounds in waste places, escaped from
gardens. Imperfectly naturalized from
This thrifty weed bas become a per
fect nuisance in New Jersey and Penn
sylvania; possibly in other States. It
appears to survive almost any amount
of hardship and ill treatment, and is
heartily hated by farmers and garden
ers. Yet, if__recent reports be true, this
troublesome plant promises to become
one of the great sources of national
profit, owing to the superior fiber it has
been found to contain. Tbe discovery
of this fiber, tbe Philadelphia Record
tells, was brought about by a French
gentleman, K. Emile Le Franc, who
has resided in America for about nine
years. He is an authority on fibrous
plants, and has written several reports
on the subject for the National Agricul
tural Department. During the Centen
nial he came to reside in Philadelphia,
and devoted some of his spare time to
an examination of the fibrous plants of
New Jersey.
The Abutilan avieennaz attracted his
attention, and a little investigation
brought him to the conclusion that the
plant possessed no inconsiderable value.
He commenced operating by a secret
process of bis own invention, aud found
that the bark around the straight stem
contained a valuable fibe. With a little
more labor this fiber was brought to the
condition required by manufacturers,
and several, to whom it was shown,
pronounced it equal to tbe jute import
ed by them from India. M. Le Franc
also found that the short fibres could
be made into a new tissue which can be
employed in the manufacture of a new
This important discovery was not to
be allowed to slumber. M. Le Franc
reported it the New Jersey Bureau of
Statistics of Labor and Industries, and
also determined to go into the manufac
ture of jute and the raising ofthe "dev
il's plant." The Bureau gave its co
operation, and issued, under its seal,
an offer from M. Le Franc to pay eight
dollars per ton for straight jute stalk,
not less than 3or 4 feet in height, de
livered in Camden. The circular also
advised farmers to go into the culti
vation of the plant, and gave important
information relative to tbe sewing of
seed, methods of planting, and other
particulars. This circular was the first
information which the Jersey agricul
turists received of the prize which was
contained in their former enemy.
The cultivation of the "devil's plant"
is to be generally followed in different
part- of JSfew Jersey. As the plant is
also to be found in Pennsylvania, it is
anticipated that Pennsylvania farmers
may find it to their profit to devote
some attention to it. The discovery is
calculated to have an important effect
upon the trade of the country. Its ul
timate result will undoubtedly be to
render the United States independent
of the world for a commodity which is
now costing our manufacture!- fully
$10,000,000 annually. <J_e total impor
tations of hemp, flax, ramie, and jute
ipto this country are valued at over
$30,000,000 a year. The jute alone rep
resents one-third of this amount. The
supply comes exclusively from India,
and tbe letter's trade in it has increased
to such an extent that it has become
the leading staple of Bengal. In this
country jute is used for numberless pur
poses, among them for rope and carpet
backs. It is also frequently mixed with
linen in the manufacture of clothes.
England, and in fact the whole of Eu
rope, are dependent upor. the _fnd.au
plantations for their supply.
The tjqw Jersey Bureau is authority
for the statement that "extensive jute
rope manufacturers of Philadelphia
have offered to buy any quantity at the
highest jute market price; that the
long fiber is equivalent to that of the
Calcutta prime jute, and that the man
ufacturers admit the superiority of the
American variety over the imported-"
In the face of this testimony it is not
too much to hazard tha opinion that ere
many years America will not only sup
ply the home demand for the staple,
but will also be able to inaugurate an
export trade. At least so think those
connected with the enterprise.

What is Trouble!
A company of Southern ladies were,
one day, assembled in a lady's parlor,
when the conversation chanced to turn
on the subject of earthly affliction.
Each one had her story of peculiar trial
and bereavement to I elate, except one
pale, sad looking woman, whose lustre
less eye and dejected air showed that
she was a prey to tbe deepest melan-
Bholly. Suddenly arousing herself, she
said in a hollow voice:
"Not one of you know what trouble
"Will you please, Mrs. Grey," said
the kind voice of a lady who well knew
her story, "tell the ladies what you call
"I will, if you desire it," she replied,
"for I have seen it. My parents pos
sessed a competence, and my girlhood
was surrounded by all the comforts of
life. I seldom knew an ungratified
wish, and was always gay and light
hearted. I married at the age of nine
teeji, one tbat I loved more than all
the world besides. Our home was re
tired, but the sunlight never fell on a
lovelier one, or a- happier household.
Years rolled on peacefully. Five chil -
dren sat around our table, and a little
curly head still nestled in my bosom.
One night, about sundown, one of those
black storms came on, which are so
common to our Southern clime. For
many hours tbe rain soured down in
cessantly. Morning dawned and still
the elements raged. The whole Savan
nah seemed afloat. The little stream
near our dwelling became a raging tor
rent. Before we were aware of it,
our house was entirely surrounded by
water. I managed, with my babe, to
reach aa elevated spot, on which a few
wide-spreading trees were standing,
whose dense foliage afforded some little
protection, while my husband and sons
strove to save what they could of our
property. At last a fearful surge swept
away my husband, and be never rose
again. Ladies—no one ever loved a
husband more, but tbat was not trouble.
"Presently my sons saw their danger,
and the struggle for life became the only
consideration. They were as brave,
loviDg boys as ever blessed a mother's
heart, and I watched their efforts to es
cape, with such agony as only mothers
can feel. They were so far off I could
not speak to them, but I could see them
closing nearer to each other aa their lit
tle island grew smaller and smaller.
"The sullen river raged around the
huge trees; dead branches, upturned
trunks, wrecks of houses, drowning cat
tle, masses of rubbish all went floating
past us. My boys waved their bands to
me and then pointed upward. I knew
it was a farewell signal, and you, moth
ers, can imagine my anguish. I saw
them all perish, and yet—that was not
"I hugged my babe close to my heart,
and when the water rose to my feet, I
climbed into the low branches of the
tree, and so kept retiring before it, till
an All-powerful hand staid the waves,
that they should come no further. I
was saved. All my wordly possessions
swept away; all my earthly hopes
blighted—yet that was not trouble.
"My baby was all I had left on earth.
I labored night and day to support him
and myself and sought to train him in
the right way; but as he grew older,
evil companions won him away from
home. He ceased to care for his moth
er's counsels; he would sneer at her
entreaties and agonizing prayers. He
left my humble roof that he might be
unrestrained in the pursuit of evil, and at
last, when heated by wine one night he
took the life of a fellow-being and ended
his own upon the soaffbld. My Heav
enly Father bad filled my cup of sorrow
before, bow it ran over. This was trou
ble, ladies, such as I hope Hia mercy
will save you from ever experiencing."
_ There was not a dry eye among her
listeners, and tbe warmest sympathy
was expressed for the bereaved mother,
Whose sad history had taught them ft
useful lesson.
Advice to a Young Han.
And the if, remember, my son, you
have to work. Whether you handle a
pick or a pen, a wheelbarrow or a set of
books, digging ditches or editing a pa
per, ringing an auction bell or writing
funny things, you must work. If you
will look around you, son, you will see
that the men who are most able to live
the rest of their days without work are
the men who work the hardest. Don't
be afraid of killing yourself with over
work, son. It is beyond your power to
do that. Men can not work so hard as
that on the sunny side of thirty. They
die sometimes, but it's because they quit
work at six p. m. and don't get home
until two a. m. It's the interval that
kills, my son. The work gives you an
appetite for your meals, it lends solid
ity to your slumber, it gives you a per
fect and grateful appreciation of a holi
day. There are young men who do not
work, my son; young men who make a
living by sucking the end of a cane ;
whose entire mental development is in
sufficient to tell them which side of a
postage stamp to lick; young men who
can tie a necktie in eleven different
knots and never lay a wrinkle in it, and
then would get into a West Hill street
car to go to Chicago; who can spend
more money in a day than you can earn
in a month, son, and who will go to the
sheriff's to buy a postal card, and apply
at the office of the street commissioner
for a marriage license. But the world
is not proud of them, son, It does not
know their names, even; it simply
speaks of them as old so-and-so's boys.
Nobody likes them, nobody hates them;
the great busy world doesn't even know
they are there, and at the great day of
the resurrection, if they do oat appear
at the sound of the trumpet—and they
certainly will not unless somebody tells
them what it is for and what to do—l
don't think Gabriel will miss them or
notice their absence, and they will not
be sent for, or waited for, or disturbed.
Things will go on just as well without
them. So find out whatyou want to bs
and to do, son, and take off yom coat
and make a dust in the world. The
busier you are the less deviltry you will
be apt to get into, the sweeter will be
your sleep, ihe brighter and happiei
youi. hoi-days, and the better satisfied
wM the world be with yea.— llawheye,

The days are growing less;
The hours draw close together,
i Like souls that dread the stress
Of Lire's antnmnal weather.
I Someleaves are turning brown,
And others red and yellow;
The apples, fallen down.
Make earth look ripe and mellow.
I hear the startling whir
Of partridge and of pheasant.
In field and wood, where were
I The wheat and vine so pleasant.
I hear the squirrel cut.
Behind the leafy visors,
Tbe hull-less hickory-nut,
■With eager, sharp incisors.
And there I see, below.
The dark and sullen river,
Whose waves, in sluggish flow.
Beneath the cold winds shiver;
Since, as the river runs,
It hath no warm emotion,
For shine not stars, or suns,
To light it to the ocean
And Summer's blossoms fall-
Just when their bloom's completes.—
The queenly rose and all,
Tbat to our hearts are sweetest.
No marvel now, to me,
How brief the days are growing-
How sullen to the sea
The starless stream is flowing;
Or how the blossoms mil—
Or the frost comes hither;
Or why on earth at all.
The beautiful should wither;
For Nature, llke-our lives,
Hath also silent sorrow;
To-day its glory thrives.
To droop and die to-morrow.
But men, who live aright,
The arm of heaven will strengthen;
Their days can have no night,
But shall forever lengthen.

Don't go to the theatre, concert or ball,
But stay in your room to-night;
Deny yourself to the friends that call.
And a good long letter write—
Write to the sad old folks at home.
Who sit when the day is done.
With folded hands and downcast eyes,
And think ofthe absent one.
Don't selfishly scribble, "Excuse my haste,
I've scarcely the time to write,"
Lest their breeding thoughts go wandering
To many a by-gone night—
When they lost their needed sleep and rest
And every breath was a prayer—
That God would leave their delicate babe
To their tender love and care.
Don't let them feel that you've no more need
Of their love or counsel wise;
For the heart grows strongly sensitive
When age has dimmed the eye-
It might be well to let them believe
You never forget them quite;
That you deem it a pleasure wlieo Caraway,
Long letters home to write.
Don't think that the young and giddy friends
Who make your pastime gay.
Have half the anxious thought for you
That the old folks have to-day.
The duty of writing do not put off;
Let sleep or pleasure wait,
Lest the letter for which they looked and
Be a day or an hour too late.
For the sad old folks at home,
With locks fast turning white,
Are longing to hear from the absent one-
Write them a letter to-night.

Raising Calves.—After the calf is a
couple of weeks old it is well to let it
have a "bundle of sweet English hay
within reach, where it can nibble at
leisure. A healthy calf will early learn
to eat hay and chew tbe cud. A box
with a little oat meal or wheat bran
may also be nailed on the side of the
pen, where the calf will soon learn to go
and lap when hungry. Old hay is better
than grass or rowen, if milk given is
v.. w and rich. If it is all skimmed the
'other feed may be a little more loosen-,
ing. But to succeed in the highest de
gree, one who is raising calves must
feed them himself, morning and night,
and notice the very indications of indi
gestion. There are plenty of signs by
which an observing person will know
at a glance whether hi- animals are in
perfect health or not. Some farmers
give their calves porridge and hay tea,
and where milk ia scarce this is a good
practice, the same caution being used to
see that the bowels are kept in a healthy
state. Yet, when milk is plenty, we
ask nothing better, even though most
of the cream is removed. It is quite
important that calves be tied in stalls or
otherwise while drinking, and for a
! while afterward, to prevent them from
getting into tbe practice of sucking
eaoh other, which is very bad.
