Nobody knows how Sthe children fret Of the trials daily met; v.ihnriv knows?but mother. Nobody knows of the mother's tears. Of the*heartfelt prayers and the anxious tears; Nobody knows?but mother. Nobody knows of the daily cares. Of the dally troubles which someone bears, Nobody knows?but mother The constant worries of every day. That furrow the cheek anil make the hair irray.

Two young girls sat on the porch of a seaside hotel iu which they had been guest all summer; near them wai a gentlemau who had just arrived. "There!" said Miss B. "There!" go those lovers off for a stroll, it is said they are actually engaged! So aboiif/H tenth middle ftirpd; lin is a 110H1 pous fool, and she is pock-marked, What can thej see in each other?" "They have been lovers since they were children," gently answered Mist C. "But she has devoted her life t? nursing her mother, who has been |il lor years with au incurable disease Now her mother is dead, and they will be married soon." Presently: "Do look at those Wright sisters." cried Miss B. "I'm sick of the sight o them. The elders sails along with thai slow majestic gait, as if they were o royal birth, and the ugly little on< trots after her? uever leaves tier i minate. It's a wonder it never occur! to her that she may be iu the waj when a pretty girl is talkiug to ? gentlernau." 'Her sister does uot think her in thi way," quietly said Miss C. "The rea son she walks and moves slowly is be cauieshe issubject to terrible attack which are brought on by rapid motion Her sister never leaves her, because i she were not there to apply the reme dies, the poor girl would die. Ther never was a more unselfish sacrifice c one life to another," she added warn; iyHer companion was silenced, bu only for a few minutes. "There is that stupid Miss Bianl going away! That is a relief! Whei women get to be as old and ugly am uninteresting as that, they ought^to b > kept|out of sight among their friends.1 Miss C. hesitated a moment. "Do you know thatMiss Blank eu gaged two rooms for the whole season and has kept them tilled with poo teachers and widows, and mother with sick babies, not one of whoc would have been able to leave bom but for her? She has given them hap piness ana neaun, ana pernaps ne\ life.

"T am a orronf aHmirpr nf tho wnrk of Charles Dickens, but I had a ver pooropiuion of the man," said L. C Courtney, now stopping at the Lac lede. "Dickens was a crank of a ven offensive class. Many peculiarities inaj properly be excused in a man of geni us, but boundless egotism and bac taste are not of the number. Whet the author of the 'Pickwick Tapers visited America he succeeded by his boorish manners, in disenthralling thousands of his worshipers on thi< oula nf fho AHnntin Ha 'IaiuI and his manners were even more stun ning than his dress. He was a greai pedestrian, and took long tramps ever} morning. When he was in Washing ton I met him one morning on th< steps of tbe Capitol. With me was s young congressman from Tennessee whom tbe great novelist had offended by his booriehness. "Thatmorning Dickens was in greai good humor and full of talk, 'I have,! said be, 'found an almost exact counterpart of little Nell.' 'Little >'ell wbo'i queried the Tennesseean.

'I am speaking of the Little Nell of my fiction, sir,' retorted Dickens flushing. 'Oh,' said the imperturbable Tenuesseean, 'you write novels, do you? Dou't you consider that a rather trifling occupation for a grown up man?' Dickens snorted " like a quarter horse and went down the avenue like Colonel Bill Hterrett on his bicycle."?St Louis Globe Democrat. \ Spelling Reform.?In a language properly spelled a child could learn to reaa without toil and in a few weeks. He would not have to learn to spell. Spelling ^wouid come or itseii; one could not spell wrong, [Several years of a child's life are taken up in learning to read and spell, while three months would be sufficient. A useless double letter at the end of words is dropped; tor ph we write f; s is changed to z when so sounded; a is dropped in such a word as bread, and e in such a word as single or eaten. The The article suffers nothing in intelligibility by this spelling; some space is saved, ana me msioneui vermes 01 our prounuciation are preserved. The roost astonishsng reform yet accomplished in our spelling was made by one man, Noah Webster. He changed tho spelling of English from centre to center, and from honour to honor; and his one will, as expressed in his one dictionary, has done this thing. But no one dictionary maker among a dozen could do this now. They can all help; but no onev4cau accomplish the reform, because no Webster can now have a monopoly of the dictionary business. We suppose that the most lioaeful wav to accomplish the reform?and that reform will" Jhave to be made in the United States and nowhere else?would be by agreement between a hundred of the principal newspapers in the United States, that I.I 1?? mey WOUIU UJC amruucn .-ijjcuing recommended by the Philological Societies.

I I"liable to C>ivc n Plain Answer. f Martin Van liuren had the reputa t tiou of beiug unable to give a plaii f answ?r to a plain question. i One day, when be was on board i i steamer, the passengers were talking o 3 tbis peculiarity, aud one of them ob j served, "I'll wager that if one of ui i shall go and ask Mr. Van Buren thi simplest question that can be though g (if, and he will evade a direct answer Yes, and I'll give you leave to tell bin why the question is asked, and tha s there is a bet depending on his reply.' This seemed fair enough, certainly f for to be forewarned was to be for - armed. One of the party was deputei e to try the experiment. He found Mr ,f Van Buren, aud said to him, "Mr. Vai i Buren, some gentlemen-on the uppe per deck have been accusing you c t non-committalism, and "have just laii a wager that you wouldn't give a plaii lc answer to the simplest question.
