relied that a sound mind and body are the most
necessary requisites to promote connubial happl

life become a weary pilgrimage) the prospect
hourly ilarkeus to tho view ; tbe infud becomes
hndowed with despair uud lilled with the melan
choly reflection, that the happiucss of another
Itecorues blighted with our own.
A CERTAIN DISEASE.
When the misguided nnd imprudent votary of
pleasure Uuds that he has imbibed tho seeds of
this painful disease, it too oil en happens that an
Ill-timed seuse or shame, or dreud tf discovery,
deters him from applying to those who, from
education and resjieetability, can alone befrieud
him, deluvlng till the constitutional symptoms of
this horrid disease! make their uppearanee, such
as ulcerated sore throat, diseased nose, uoctural
pains in the head and limbs, dimness of sight,
deafness, nodes on the shiu bones and arms,
blotches ou tho head, face and extremities, pro
gressing with frightful rapidity, till at lust tho
palate of the mouth or the bones of the nose fall
lu, aud the victim of this awful disease becomes
a horrid object of commiseration, till death puts
a period to his dreadful suffering, by sendiug
him to " that Undiscovered Country from wheuco
no traveller returns."
It is a melancholy fact that th sands DIE
victims to UiU terrible dismjy, ikvoiigh falling
Into the hauls of ItfeTuMarytinskillful PRE

HAVE YOU A MOTHER!
Have yn a mother? love her well,
While she Is spared on earth t
Walt not till death shall cull her hener,
To know her previous worth.
Walt not till she lies cold and still,
Most beautiful, though dead,
To think of what yon should have done,
Bcforo her dear life tlot.
Think now how much she should be loved,
, And prise her ns you ought,
Or else, your life when she e gone,
With sorrow shall be fraught.
Oh. wnlch her, guard her with your love,
While with you she Is left,
For when she leaves you, life will seem
Of every Jfty bereft.
Oh, soothe her In her hours of pain,
Be gentle and be mild ;
r tinw sweet 'twill be for you to know
You've been a faithful child. '
An Evil and lis Remedy,
Oue mail with any trade is worth n thou
sand without otic. A return to the old
plan of apprenticing boys to trades is be
ing advocated. Tho bus In of young men
iu every large city who apply for employ
ment, and fail to get it, for the reason that
they cannot truthfully ntlirni that they nre
educated nr especially fitted for nny parti
cular business, constitutes a polent argu
ment in favor of reform. Under tho ap
prentice system we should have fewer igno
rant mechanics aud incompetent busiuess
men. A trade is half a man's fori inc.
It presents iu a uutsliull the gront evil of
tho times. How many thousands of young
men are now idle in our great cities in
our towns and villages who profess to
be seeking work, yet avoid the foundry, the
machine shop, the shop of the builder, nnd
every other place where useful trades are
taught and practiced, as they would avoid
a pestilence. They seek ouly such em
ployments as promise little work and largo
pay. With the most of our young men the
learning of a trade is not respectable. And
who is to blame for this sentiment, so uni
versal among our youth V It is the pa
rents it is society, so called. Society is
understood to taboo the mechanic and
working man, and hence it is believed that
there is no road to respectability through
the mechanic's shop.
No greater or more fatal mistake was
ever made. No system nfcdueatiou was
ever so false and dangerous as that which
i'.culcatcs the idea thai labor is a badge of
dishonor or that the laboring man is not
the peer of the most exalted in the land.
Tho work shop is tho best and surest
road to usefulness and to fortune. It lies
directly in the path of honor ami distinction
nnd wealth. It is the best theatre now of
ten d for tho most perfect develoeiiracut of
the man of genius and of talent. There is
no place where the man of education can
demonstrate Ids .capacity fur usefulness
belter than the machine shop, nnd amidst
the steam and machinery of our great inan
'il'ai'torii s. It i.-i above all others, the place
for the young man who really wants to
work and win his way to wealth and to an
honored and honoiable position among his
We need not go beyond our own city to
find examples which any young man, how
ever distinguished hi family or illustrous
his lineage, may well emulate. Tho front
rank in the grand army of progress is nc
o r. ling to them and to men of their stamp
throughout tho land. I.et our young nieu
of education look to tha life which the stur
dy meebani ; furnish' 8 ns one worthy to be
followed, aud we shall have fewer upon
themselves ami shame and dishonor upon
Tub Kino and the Soldier. Fred
rick of Prussia had a great mania for en
listing gigantic soldiers, into tho Hoyal
Guards, aud paid an enormous bounty to
his recruiting ollleers for getting them.
One day the recruiting sergeant chanced to
espy an Iliberuian who was at least seven
feet high : he accosted him in English, and
proposed that ho should enlist. The idea
of military life and the large bounty so de
lighted 'Patrick that he immediately con
sented. "Hut unless you can speak Germon, the
king will not give you so much."
"Oh!" said the Irishman, "sure it's I
that don't know a word of Herman."
'Hut," said the sergeant, "three words
will be sulllcicnt, and those you can learn
in a short time. The king knows every
man iu the guards. As soon as he set s
you, l.e will ride up and ask you how old
you arc; you will say, Tireutii-ma u ;'
ucxl.how long have you lieen in the service :
you must reply, '7Vce imX,' finally, if you
are provided with clothes aud rations ; you
answer 'Joti.' "
Pat soon learned to pronounce his nn- j
swers, uut never dreamed 01 learning tno
questions. In three, weeks he apieai'ed bc
toiu the king iu review. His Mnjusty rode
up to hiiu. Paddy stepped forward with
"How old arc you V" said the king.
"Three weeks," said the Irishman.
"How long have you been in the service?"
nsked his majesty.
"Am I or you a blockhead V" roared Ihe
"Hoth." replied l'atrick, who was in
stantly taken to the xuard-room, but par
doned by the king after he understood tho
fact of the case.
Xo Effect. A German paper contains
a reply from u clcrgyiiiiii who was travel
ing, who stopped at a hotel much frequent
ed by wags and jokers. The host, not be
ing used li have clergymen at his lable,
looked at him with surprise ; the clerks
used all their artillery of wit upon him,
without eliciting a remark iu self-defense.
The worthy clergyrean are his dinner quiet
ly, apparently wi'.hout observing the gibes
nnd queers of his neighbors. One of them,
at last, iu despair ut forbenrauce, said to
"Well, I wonder nt your patience ! Aro
you not heard all that has been said against
"Oh, yes ; but I am used to It. Do you
kuow who I am V"
"Well, I will inform you. I am chaplain
of a lunatic asylum ; such remarks have no
ctfect upon tuo."
"TnoMAs." said a father to his sod
"don't let that girl make a fool of you.
Ioofc sharp. Ke-membor tbe adage that
'I.OV6 is bliud.'" "Oh. that adage won't

Don't Like It. A lady with a poodle
dog entered a smoking car on a Western
train, the oilier day, and when the conduc
tor endeavored to persuade her to go into
another car, she refused, saying her pre
sence would deter the occuimuis from
smoking. A gi-ullcmnti. huwever, took out
a segar and began to smoke, when she
wrenched it from his mouth, exclaiming.
"If ihere is anything I hato it is tobacco
smoke." The passengers who had witnessed
the allair were convulsed with laughter.but
the ulluuding smoker suppressed whatever
emotions may have been struggling for ex
pression in words or action, nnd maintain
