A HUSBAND'S PRAISE.
Her husb.nd, he praijetb her."-SOLOUO.V.
Husbands often do not know with what
ceaseless so??kude the duties of a wife
and motlier are accompanied. They leave
home t-arlv, many of them ; the routine
of business-the same as it was yester
day, and will he Cir months to c?ir?fi-is
so thoroughly digested that the pet form -
ance is comparatively without annoyance.
They have ho heavy or wearying house
hold wo:k todo, io fretting little ones
hinging on to their garments, now to
nurse, now to correct, now to instruct ;
while still the dusting, and the cleansing,
and the preparing of food must be going
on, and the little garments must be nice
ly fitted and made, or all would be unti
diness and confusion. Yet how many an
a.lroit manager contrives to get through
with all this, willingly-if she is but ap
preciated, and her valuable services es
teemed-to endure, calmly, the (rials in
cident to her lot, keeping c?ire from her
pleasant face by a merry spirit and cheer
Hut if she never hears the kind words,
" 1 thank you," or beholds the beautiful
smile that unuttered gratitude spreads
upon the countenance of bim for whom
she has forsaken all, what immeasurable
anguish- will she not experience !
We luve often thought how poignant
must be the grief, how heavy the disap
pointment of the young wife, when she
first learns that the husband of her choice
is indifferent to .her studied efforts to
Gaily as thc bird upon the tree by her
doorside she has gone cai oiling about her
domestic duties. Like a skillful painter
she has touched and retouched-all the pe
culiar though simple luxuries of her
home, till they seem to her like the adorn
ing;; of a paradise
The hearth is bright and red-not a
speck of dust is visible. She has brought
out all her hoarded wealth ; and the ta
bles, the new-varnished bureau, and the
easy arm-chair, shine in snowy garniture.
.Site has placed the pictures in the best
light, made all things look cheerful and
bright, placed a bouquet of brilliant flow
ers upon the neat supper-table, and an
other above the fireplace, and with pleas
ant anticipations she awaits his return.
M How cheerful everything looks ! And
how pleased he will bc ! He will com
mend my care and taste."
Presently the well known step draws
near ; she flies with a happy smile to
meet him, and together they enter their
What I No sign of surprise ? NQ new
delight on his features ? Does he receive
all her attention- as a matter of course
something looked for, expected, easily
done, and without price ? Can he not pay
her the tribute of a glad smile? Alas
he doe3 not believe in praise; his wife
must be disinterested ; must look upon
these performances as stern duties; if he
praise now, and forget to praise again,
they may be discontinued.
She is disappointed, chagrined; and
unless taste and perfect neatness are in
dispensable to her own comfort, she grad
ually wearies in well-doing when a little
encouragement, a little praise, might have
stimulated her to constant exertion.
Many a wife becomes careless of her
appearance because of her husband's in
difference. In the simple matter of dress
-not so simple, either !-how often men
think it beneath them to notice or ap
prove the choice their wives may make !
We once remarked to a gentleman that
his wife displayed admirable taste in her
attire ; and what, think you, was his an
swer ? With a sigh we record it: " Has
she ? Well, now, I should hardly know
what she had on."
Now we do like to sec a husband no
tice such things, even to particularity.
We like to hear him give his opinion as
to whether such and such a thing is be
coming to his wife. We are pleased to
see a father interested in the little pur
chases of his children, instead saying with
a frown, " Oh ! go away ; I. don't care for
such things; suit yourselves."
And in household corners the husband
should express his approbation of neat
ness and order ; he should be grateful for
any little effort that may have been put
forth to add to his comfort and pleasure ;
he should commend the good graces of
his wife, and at fitting times make men
tion of them. Indeed, not one alone, but
both should reciprocate the good offices
of the other. We never esteemed a wo
man the less on hearing her say. u I have
a good husband ;" we never thought a
man wanting h dignify who spoke of his
wife as being dear to him, or quoted her
amiability or industry as worthy of imi
tation by others. Who does not esteem
the unaffected praise of a husband or a
wife, above that of all beside. No mo
tive but love induces either to
" Speak tho gentle words
That sink into the hearty

How many a home have we seen glit
tering with splendor ; where glowing
marble, from Italia's clime, gives a silent
welcome to the entering guest ; where on
thc walls hang votive offerings of art that
lill the whole soul with their beauty;
where the carpets yield to the lightest
pressure, and the rich hangings crimson
the palest cheek-yet amidst all this show
and adorning hac the proud w?e sat, the (
choicest piece, of furniture there-f<>r so
her hu-band regards her. Formal and
stern, he has thrown around her ti.e- dra
pery of his chill heart, and it has folded
about her like marble. She is " my la
dy," and nothing more. No outburst of
affection in. the form of sweet praise falls
upon her e irs ; pendants of diamonds
drop therefrom, but their shining is like
his love, costly and cold. We have heard
such a one say, in times gone by, " All
this show and pride of station, would 1
resign, for one word of praise from my
The Railway Switch Tender and his
Oh! the value, the inestimable value
to youth, of a prompt obedience to pa
rental commands ! An anecdote strik
ingly illustrative of this, as well as set
ting forth Christian heroism of an exalted
character, has recently occurred in Prus
sia. On one of the railroands in that
country, a switch tender was just taking
his place, in order to turn a coming train
ihen in sight, ou a different track, to,pre
vent a collision with a train approaching
in a contrary direction. Just at this mo
ment, on turning his head, he discerned
his little son playing on thc track ot' the
advancing engine. What could he do?
Thought was quick at such a moment of
peril ! Ile might spring to his chi ld and
rescue him, but he could not do this and
lum the switch at the same time, and for
want of that, hundreds of lives might be
lost. Although in sore trouble, he could
not neglect his greater duty, but, exclaim
ing with a loud voice to his son, "Lie
down," he laid hold, of the switch, and
saw the Irain-safely turned on its proper
track. His boy, accustomed to obedience,
did as his lather commanded him, and the
fearfully heavy train'thundered over him.
Little did the passengers dream, as they
found themselves quietly r?sting on that
turnout, what terrible anguish their ap
proach had that day' caused to one noble
heart. The father rus! ed forward to
where his boy lay, fearful lest he should
lind only a mangled corpse, hut, to his
great joy and thankful gratitude, he found
him alive and unharmed. Prompt obe
dience had saved him. Had he paused
to argue, to reason whevher it were best
-death and fearful mutilation of body
would have resulted. "The circumstances
connected with this event were made
known to the King of Prussia, who the
next day sent for the mau and presented
him with a medal of honor for his he
Dear reader, couldst thou have done
as this switch tender did I Consider.
Thy darling-the delight of thine eyes,
the joy of thy heart, about to be crushed
and mangled by that coming train, and
thoa couldst save him by neglecting thc
switch ! The momentary contest in the
bosom of this noble man must have been
intenselv agonizing. We can all rejoice
with him when he found his obedient
child uninjured by the mighty hurricane
of power that had whirled over his head
-but let us pause and consider, could
we haye done as he did ? And then an
other question may claim the serious
thoughtfulness of parents. Have we
brought up our children in such habits of
prompt, unhesitating obedience, as char
acterized this little boy ?

Taking a Dislike.
An ill-natured fellow quarreled with
his sweetheart on the day they were to
bc married. After the ceremony had
begun, ho was asked :
" Do you take this woman to be your
wedded wife," etc.
He replied, "No!"
" What is the reason?" asked the min
"I've taken a dislike to ker, and that's
enough," was the surly reply.
The parties retired-thc bride in tears
-a*".d, after much persuasion, the groom
was induced to have the marriage pro
ceed. lt was now the lady's turn, and
when the minister asked the all-important
" No !" said she, resolutely, " I've ta
ken a dislike to him."
The groom, admiring her spunk, made
the matter up with her as soon as possi
ble, anda third time they presented them
selves before the minister, who began the
ceremony by asking the usual questions,
which were satisfactorily answered this
time. But to the astonishment of the
party the minister continued :
M Well, I'm glad to hear that you arc
willing lo take each other for husband
and wife, for it is a good thing to be of
forgiving tempers. You can go now and
get married where you will-I will not
tie the knot, for I have taken a dislike to
both of you."

A HOGGISH DUTCHMAN.-A German
tavern keeper in Cincinnati, who enter
tains pork men, and caters to the taste both
of his countrymen and patrons, had a
roast pig for dinner on Sunday. Thc
animal (a small one) was served up whole,
and as it was placed on the table sent
forth an appetising and savory smell that
pervaded the dining room, and made
every occupant wish for a slice, but to
the astonishment of every guest, a burley
hirsuted Teutonic pork dealer from thc
country sat down opposite the dish and
incontinently appropriated thc entire roast.
The landlord happened to be absent, and
good breeding prevented any of the guests
from entering a protest, so Hans made such
a havoc of the dish, and wiped his mouth,
with such evident relish, that one of the
waiters with a keener sense of the fun
approached him, and inquired if he would
have anything else Han's beaming face
brightened in a moment and he asked in
reply, "Got any more ov dem Icetle
A New Englander, riding in a railroad
car, seemed particularly disposed to as
tonish the other passengers with tough
stories about Yankeedoin. At last he
mentioned that one of his neighbors owned
an immense dairy, and made a million
pounds of butter and a million pounds of]
cheese yearly. The story produced some
sensation, and the Yankee perceiving that
his veracity was in danger of being ques
tioned, appealed toa friend as,fol low's :
"True, isn't it, Mr P-? I speak
of Deacon Brown-you know Deacon
"Y-e-s," replied the friend, " that is,
I yes, I know Deacon Brown, though 1
don't know as I ever heard precisely how
many pounds of butter and cheese he
made a year, but I know he has twelve

A Benevolent Minister,
Not Tong since, a small boy, in very
dilapidated clothing, called at the resi
dence of Rev. Mr. R., and asked for
something tu cat. The servant who came
to thc door asked the minister what she
should give him, when he pointed to a
pile of bread that was very stale, saying,
"Give him senne of that." The servant
did so, and, as the boy was going away,

his family were about sitting down to
dinner, and was staring at the estables on
thc table, when the dominie said, " My

" Why certainly."
Thc boy looked at him awhile, and
then commenced crying, at thc same time
holding up his crust of bread, and ex
claiming, between his sobs:

H AIR-BRUSHES ANO COMBS-Children
should be taught, from their earliest, re
membrance, the importance of keeping
thc hair clean, not so much by the usc of
the comb as "the brush. Two sorts of
combs are used, fine and coarse, made
either of ivory or bone; when ihe brush
has bCen well used, there is seldom any
necessity for the fine tooth comb, and the
intention of using the coarse comb is
merely to disentangle the hair and pre
pare it for the brush. Nothing is more
injurious to the skin of the head than the
frequent application of thc small tooth
comb, the points of the teeth of which

tending more that any other cause to the
formation of scurf, lt cannot be too
strictly impressed upon the minds of pa

blessed with a good head of hair, to re

TOBACCO-SMOKINQ.-The Inverness Cou

tobacco pipe, with the date 1510. As it
is generally believed thar, tobacco was
first introduced into this country by Sir
Walter Raleigh, about 1585, it is singu

thus represented on a stone bearing date
so much earlier. The Courier says, "there
can bc no mistake as to the datp, or the
nature of thc representation. The fox
holds thc 'fragrant tnbe' in his mouth,
exactly as it is held by its human admi
rers; and the instrument is such as may
be seen every day with those who pat
ronize the 1 cutty pipe.' "
Thc Inquirer, at Gonzales, Texas, says
an old freedman told his old master that
