"With a Savior sura friend

Sometimes happening along
1 had heard the semi -song,
Aad I often used to smile.
More la sympathy that, guile.
But I never said a word,
In regard to what t heard ;"
A shs sang about her friend
Who would keep ber to the end.
Not la aorrow dot la glee .
Working all day long was the,

' Played around heron the njor;
Bat la monotones the Boot;
She wat humming aU day long,
"With a Saviour for a friend.
He will keep me to the end."
If a soag I do not slog.
For I aearo believe a thing

Uf the miracle or old ;
But I know that ber belief
It tbe anodyne of grief.
And will always be a friend
That will keep her to th and.
Just a trifle lonesome she.
Just a poor a poor could be.
Bat her splrlu always rose,
I.Ike the bubble la the clothe,
And though widowed and alone.
Cheered her with thae monabme.
Of a Savior and a friend
Who would keep her to the end.
I have area her rub and rub.

While the baby, sopped in rad
Rolled and rambled la the duds.
Or was paddling In the pools.

Any hop that aong ean bring.

"Why, wbat coald she do? She

Sbe bad a home at an nncle's, if sucb

a brother's child. Sbe worked for
ber board and was grudgingly allow
ed the cluibes sbe needed. Although
ber education was good, sbe had no
tact for teaching. . Sbe bad no taste
for business, as has been alreadT
said. Her forte was doing bjuee
work, but rather than support herselt
in that way for fear ot what Mrs.
Grundy and ber train of followers

And now 1 want to preach a ser

life will be just a bat vou make it."
' .Nothing is lowering to your digni
ty, if yon do not let it loweryonr dig
nity. Keep in tbe path of virtue and
you are in the right. It is no worse
tor you to go into tbe kiu-beo of
another and di. tbe work and be paid
twenty shillings a week fur it, than it
is for you to. marry and do tbe same
work, and get nothing font but what
you eat and the clothes you wear.
I went in search of a servant girl
iast summer. For seven long weeks
1 be arc bed sorrowing. Ooe pretty
ooking girl told me that it I enly
ived in tbe town instead of the coun-
jv abe would help me, but she was
afraid she would spoil her complex
ion. Vet ber father was a drunkard,
ud ht-r mother earned their daily
jread by going out at day's work,
ecrubbiug, waabiog and tbe like
A.ud there the daughter was content
to sit with folded bands, wailing,
n -jyiog that some one wonld come and
m ury ber.
"liui," says one, "I djn'l want lo
t unk Viai 1 must work out all my
ifs for a living.'
You need not, but yoo will need
outage, perseverance and a will to
lo. Let me tell you a story. Mary
Barn am and ber brother were left or
bana. Sbe was Bixteen, be fourteen
i ke f aioer bad been a shiftless, inef
rcieot eon of a man, and bad laid np
rotbing for tbe future, so tbey were
ibliged to support themselves. For
nnately for ber, sbe knew bow to do
loosework, and anyone wbo secured
I try secured a treasure. So sbe
tent to work. Sbe sent her brother
.j ecboul. At the age ot sixteen he
ueani to learn a trade. Soon after
be came to me.
"I am tired of doing housework,
Jred of scouring knives and cooking
dinners, and now I sm going to
school," she said.
' Going to Echool ! "What are yon
going to live npon ?n
"I'll earn my living."
And she did. . Sbe worked at one
place for a year, t Sbe earned twenty
shillings per week. Sbe spent fifty
cents a week, so that at the end of
a year sbe bad $104. Now she was
ready to start for school. She select
ed tbe best school in the State tbe
State Normal. She rented a room
for fifty cents a week. The school
term for tbe Year is forty weeks.
Twenty dollars of her money was
gone. Some few friends, seeing that
she was determined to go to school,
furnished ber room very plainly and
cheaply. .
She then resolved to live on one
dollar a week ; this necessitated the
strictest economy. Thus sixty dol
lars of her money wa spent.. That
left her but forty-four dollars with
which to pay her tuition, buy her
books and get tbe needfuls.
To be sure, sac was not noted for
tbe number of ) ber dresses, nor was
her hair frizzle! and puffed in just
tbe latest style, nor did sbe appear at
every social ; bat one tbing she was
noted for, perfect lessons. Sbe gave
attention to her studies so tbat at the
end of the year Ler scholarship was
euch that she received a training cer
tificate, entitling her to teach without
a public examination. Whatever
she undertook tebe did weiL Her
motto war: "tV'batever is worth do
ing at all is worth doing well."
Tbe next two years sbe taught,
receiving $100 per year. At tbe end
of two years she managed to save
$400, to send ber to school tbe re
maining two years. Wiih tbe al
most economy, it served ber purpose.
Sbe bad so little left tbat sbe bad not
enough money to buy a new dress in
which to graduate.
But when tbe bouquet was thrown
ber at tbe close of reading ber essay,
I bardly tbiuk sbe tbuugbt as to
whether ber dress was new or not.
Afterward I beard tbe Governor and
tbe Slate Superintendent congratulat
ing ber. '
The next year sbe was offered an
excellent situation in one of our nnion
cbools. But, ber health having suf
fered during tbe last term she was in
school, bbe went out doing house
work, instead of accepting tbe posi
tion. Did it degrade her any? No;
sbe did her work just as faithfully as
if it were the chosen business of ber
At the end of six months, her
beakb being established, she com
menced teaching. She was a suc
cessful teacher.
Where is she to-day ? The wife of
an eminent professor in one of our
Westera colleges.
-I know another lady wbo borrowed
the money to take her through school,
and paid it after she commenced
teaching. To-day she is one of our
most successful writers.
Another wbo had no means of ber
own, bad a brother wbo was a farm
er. He had not much ready cash,
but If gave her enough provisions
for beiai'f sad a little girl boarder.
For tbe board of tbe little girl sbe re-j
ceived five dollars per week. The
five dollars per week carried her
through school. After graduating
she taught. Her health failed, and
tbe pbysican adviBed ber to give op
teaching and go to doing housework
Fortunately for ber, sbe knew how.
She had a piano, and was very
fond of music. So her next thought
was, coold sbe not find some place
wbere she coold earn ber board and
a little more, and take music lessons?
Sbe went here and there to findsncb
a place. She succeeded at last, and
was offered one dollar a week. Sbe
accepted tbe situation, and did ber
work so faithfully and well, that tbe
lady paid ber two dollars instead of
one. bbe told ber she earned it.
W as not that better tbaa to have cat
down and folded her bands and be
moaned ber fate ?
At the end of the year her heakb
was established, and to ber other at
tainments she had added that of
music. Do you tbink sbe lost one
womanly grace during tbe vear she
did housc-ork? Far from it. Sbe
bad gained in many things tbat
tvbiuh makes the true woman, and to
day few aie her equals.
Girls, you need not say, "mother
was to blame ; she never taught me
to work." Put your mind to it, and
your heart in it, and in a year's lime
you will be mistress of housework.
Mary Mead was left penniless;
fbe was then seventeen. A few days
after the death of her parents sbe
came to me.
"What febMl I do?," sbe said, "I
absolutely kii w nothing which will
enable me to lake care of myself."
And it was so. She could sing a
little, play a little, and paint a little.
Her mother bad done all tbe work
just as a good many other mothers
are now doing, and left Marv to
romp and plav, and have a good time
"Wbat shall 1 do?" sbe said,
bursting into sob a "If I knew any.

place, and did so, and so thoroughly

At tbe end of tbat time the son. a
noble young man, who had just en

He was a long, loose jointed, red
faced man, dressed in a greasy yel
low shooting suit of corduroy, and be
entered tbe smoking cabin of a Court
land street ferry-boat witb au easy,
careless step. His face waa covered
witb a stobby growth of beard, and
bis bair was ginger-colored and mat
ted. Ue bore upon bis shoulder a
double-barreled bird gun and be led
by a strong cord a yellow Jersey cor.
He took bis seat by tbe door, and af
ter kicking his dog nnder the bench
folded bis coat-collar above his chin
and looked grimly around the cabin.
Everybody looked at him, but no
body could guess what his ultimate
intentions were. Just as tbe boat
splashed out into tbe stream a jolly
German in asnutT-colored garb, rolled
gracefully through tbe cabin and
dropped into a scat near tbe man
witb tbe dog and gun. He espied
tbe hunter.
"Snipe ?"
"Yes," was tbe surly answer.
"Well, I'll tell you wot; snipe is
awful thick aronnd Jersey new.
They say Jersey is abend covered
over wid snipe."
"Is that so ?" the hunter broke in,
as be shifted bis position. "Well, I
guess I'm the man that can get as
many snipe in a day as anyone. I'll
tell vou wbat I've done many a time, I
it i do say it; an yer can anus nnu
me if I don't tell w bat's true. I shot
319 of 'em in a day, and I'd bad a
dozen more, but my dog got arter a
herron an' chased her into ao old
mud puddle an' got drownded; other,
wise, wbar would I ha' ended ? I
I tbink I'd a cleaned Jersey, from
USandy Hook, of all ber snipe. On
tbat very day, afore tner dorg got
stuck iu the mod, he cangbt a
snipe himself; treed ber and killed
ber. An' if I don't then " .
Erery one stared at tbe story tel
ler, until the German slowly arose
and said : "Mine friend, dot is a
ferry goot story, but I'll tell you one
dot ib so mooch petter as dot is goot.

Tbe man in corduroy slowly arose
and walked out on tbe deck. N. Y.
Gilmore's Garden, New York, was
in an uproar the other morning. A
big elephant named Borsen, which
arrived from Liverpool for tbe men
agerie, was assigned to a place where
three other elephants were chained;
and, being unaccustomed to stand
otherwise than alone, he became
very belligerent. He walked inront
of the other elephants as far as the
chain would permit, struck them on
tbe bead with bis tronk, aud seem
ed determined tbat tbey should ac
knowledge bis superiority. Always
w ben several elephants are chained
together one masters tbe rest, before
peace is established. Mr Hale, tbe
keeper of Borsen, gave bim blows
with a stout stick, and aided by sev
eral other men, watched tbe beasts
through tbe night. Borsen enter
tained a consequent grudge against
tbe keeper, and as tbe latter about
seven o'clock in tbe morning was
giving bim water, bit bim a blow on
bis 6ide tbat knocked him twenty
feet away. Hale ran at Borsen witb
bis slick, but was seized and tbrown
over tbe railing. Oa returning to
tbe charge, he was again seized, and
this time tbe beast was on tbe point
of plunging his tusks into biro, when
Mr. Charles McLaio, the boss can
vassman, went to bis rescue and
dragged bim out of reach. Borsen
tben became furious. He broke his
chain, and started through tbe prem
ises with bis trunk elevated and his
tail standing stiffly in a horizontal
position, lie tore down a wooden
railing as if tt were a thread, and
went to tbe lion's cage, which he
knocked over. There was then a
pandemonium of roars from all the
beasts, including tbe s!ais and sea
lions. Over twenty tied, but soon
ralied. and under tbe leadership of
Messrs. McLain and McDonald,
prodded tbe elephant with pitchforks
and tore bis ears with books until be
was secured. This was done by first
lassoing one of bis legs as he step
ped, and tben twining the rope
around his other legs, which caused
bim to fall heavily. Tben, being
helpless, his fore and bind legs and
tubkt we'e chained. In this condi
tion, after tremendous beatings, he
rose, and was led to one cf tbe posts
in the garden, to which be was at
tached. His ears were badly lacer
ated, and blood streamed ' from
woonds on his sides.
An elephant after being conquered,
rarely attempts the second rebellion,
and Borsen was qaiet in a few bourn,
obyiog the ejramands of the attend
ants. It took six boors to sabdue
bim, and men were afterwards occu
pied tor hours washing away tbe
constant flow of blood. Mr Hale
was badly, but not dangerously hurt.
Charles Rivers bad a narrow escape,
for tbe elephant at one lime held bim
with hia trunk, and was on tbe point
of driving his tucks into him when a
violent blow of a club caused the
trunk to loosen.

was which. Anil yet, from the days
of Peter tbe Great, tbe Huiau
and Turks have been almost habitu
ally at war, and the record of tbeir
struggles presents some of tbe most
exciting episodes in Modern history.
As to tbe war o( tbe eighteeaih cen
toary, tbe conditions of a conflict be
tween tbe two Powers have not whol
ly cbaoged; and some strategic ques
tions are the same now as tbey
were during the eighteenth century.
Then, as now, says a writer in tbe
London Timn, the command of tbe
Black Sea was of tbe highest moment
to either belligerent ; tben, hi now,
the ill-opened tracts and pestilential
regions around the Balkans were a
dangerous barrier to invaicr, and
tben, as now, tbe immense distance
between tbe Danube and Constanti
nople was in iulf a most serious ob
slide. Tbe iunate qualiiies, too, of

is largely increased by tbe improve
ments effected in modern war, and by
lbe altered condition, in recent limes,
of the subject races of tbe Ottoman
Empire. In 1736-40, tbe Porte con
tended on eq'ul terms siinst Rus
sia backed by the whole strength of
Austria; in 1787-00 tie troops of
Suwarrow were scarcely able to ad
vance at lbe rate of five miles a day;
when Cs'.hariue and Joseph agreed
to divide tbe spoils of Turkey in Eu
rape between them, lbe Cbriciian
population made no signs of life, tbe
wars, therefore, of these remote peri
ods cannot teach us mach for tbe pres
ent juncture.
It is more important to take ac
ccuat of the general results of these
bygone contests aud of the political
combinations which marked tbeir
course, or which may be connected
witb ibeni. Tbe first broad fitet tbat
appears is that tbe poffer of tbe
Czars bas prodigiou-Iy grown, aad
tbat of the Sultaos has much dimin
ished; and tbis memorable change, as
is well kaown, has almost ever since
been in rapid progress.
The frontier of Russia in the war
of 1730 was on the Don and Dnieper
only ; in that of 1737-91, it bad ad
vanced to the verge of the Prcitb":
Suwarrow bad already approached
the Balkans, traversed afterwards by
bis successor, Oiebitcb. Again, it is
a mistake to suppose that the alli
ances which in modern limes have
upheld tbe fabric of 0;toman rules
are founded on long established tra
ditions, or indicate a settled Europe
an policy. Twice .Austria, in tbe
tenth century, combined with Rus
sia to crush tbe power of the Torks
iu Europe, and ever since tbe day of
tbe Emperor Joseph a party of weight
in tLe councils of Austria have advo
cated a return to tbis very system.
Nor bas tbe attiiuda of England
been altogether different ; daring tbe
long struggle between England and
France, England often dealt witb tbe
Turks as enemies, and in fact, it was
not until lbe time of Pitt tbat it con
sidered tbe Porte as a "neutral ally."
It deserves notice, too, ibateversince
tbe wars which revealed her decay
in the last century, Turkey has been
treated practically by the great Pow
ers ot Europe as in no real sense an
independent State, as justly subject
to tbe will of tbe stronger, It is not
necesssry to lay stress on the parti
tion planned at Tilsit ; but that of
Duckworth's passage of the Dardan
elles ; of Navarion, aod of the liber
ation of Greece, if on these occasions
lbe Porte bad the same kind of inter
national and sovereign rights possess
ed by every European kiugdom. The
eighteenth century, in fact showed
what the Ottoman Empire really is ;
and nothing but a series ef strange
accidents have since kept together its
dissolving frame.

It is scarcely possible to pbot
graph with pen and ink the physiog-
noniy of a great city, or if yon could,
it would only Ue a pbotograpb alter
all. lacking warmth of color and
depth of tone. We must content our
selves witb a silhouette. Let us take
a brief survey of Florence from tbe
hei&bts of San Miniato or the Boboli
Gardens. It is like looking at a per
son in profile. You get a clearer out
line of tbe more prominent features,
though it may be at the expense of
the minuter details of form aod ex
pression. Tbe city lies' mapped out before us
in the form of an irregular polygon
unequally divided by tbe Arno,
wbicb with its broad aud handsome
quays and its numerous biidges with
tbeir graceful arcbes, constitutes ooe
of tbe most striking features in tbe
landscape. To tbe extreme right,
coospicious with its lofty tower and
ornate facade of variegated marble,
is tbe dark, gloomy mas of Santa
Croce, the "Pantheon" of Florence.
Beyond are tbe funeral cypresses of
lbe Protestant cemetery, where sleep
tbe remains of Mrs. Browning and
Theodore Parker. Farther on are
tbe heights of Fiesole, tbe ancient ri
val of Florence, with its Franciscan
convent and hoary crown of Cyclo
pane walls. Between Fiesole and
Carreggi, once tbe seat of Lorenzo
tbe Magnificent's Platonic Academy,
is the famous Villa Palmieri, where
Boccaccio, the father of Italian prose,
laid tbe scene of bis "Decameron,"
which inspired the "Canterbury
Tales'' of our own Chaucer.the Fath
er of English poetry.
Directly in front of ns is the enor
mous rectangular mass of the Palazzo
Vecchio, with its madia-val tower
and frowning battlements. To lbe
right the tapering spire of the Badia
shoots heavenward. Beyond, loom
ing np in imposing grandeur, is the
wondrous dome ot Brunellesbr, Sank
ed by the marvelous Campanile of
Giotto, solid as a fortress, and yet
light and ethereal as an air. castle
Immediately to the left of the Cathe
dral you can just see tbe octagonal
dome of the Baptistery, the "l-lfian
ovannieol Dante, whose magnificent
bronze doors transported Michael
Angelo to the seventh heaven of ar
tistic enthusiasm. Beyond tbe Bap
tistery, San Lorenzo, tbe Westmin
ster Abbey of Florence, proudly lifts
its crest, as if in ambitious rivalry of
the Duomo, while farther to the left
Santa Maria Novella, with its grace
ful campanile, beautiful facade, and
spacious clcisurs, rejoices as the mys- j
tic bride of the greet Buouarotti. ;
Crossing tbe Arno aod sweeping
westward, the eye is arrested lor a
