Tired Mothers.
A little elbow leans upon your knee,
Yourutired knee, that has so much to
bear;
A child's dear eyes are looking lovingly
. From underneath a thatch of tangled
hair.
Perhaps you do not heed the velvet touch
Of warm, moist fingers, folding yours
so tight ;
You do not prize this blessing overmuch,
You almost are too tired to pray to
night.
But it t's blessedness ! A year ago
I did not see it as I do to-day
We are so dull and thankless ; and too
slow
To catch the suushinetill it slips away.
Aud now it seems surpassing strange to
nie,
That, while I wore the badge of moth
'erhood,
I_did not kiss more oft, and tenderly,
The little child that brought me only
good.
And if, some night when you sit down to
rest,
You miss this elbow from your tired
knee ;
This restless, curling head from off your
breast,
This lisping tongue that chatters con
stantly ;
If from your own the dimpled hands bad
slipped,
And ne'er would nestle in your palm
again ;
If the white feet into their grave had
tripped,
I could not blame you for your heart
ache then !
I wonder so that motheis ever fret
Atlittlechildren clinging to their gown;
Or that the foot prints, when the days
are wet,
Are ever black enough to make them
frown.
If I could find a little muddy boot,
Or cap, or jacket, on my chamber floor;
If I :ould kiss a rosy, restless foot,
And hear its patter in my home once
more:
TM could mend a broken cart to-day,
To-morrow make a kito to reach the
sky
There is no woman in God's world could
say_
She was more blissful content than I !
But ah ! trie dainty pillow next my own
Is never rumpled by a shining head ;
My singing birdiing from its nest is
flown ;
The little boy I used to kiss is dead !
-Mrs. A Wert Smith.
NEGRO WORSHIP DOWN SOUTH,
A,Day's Service in. Georgia-The Ne
groes Religious Status.
Savannah Cor. Boston Congregationalist
r The people were gathering about
?the- Methodist church as we arrived.
They rumbled along, whole families
o? them in diminutive carts of their
O'.vn manufacture drawn by a single
animal, usually an ox, or what at the
North would be called a small steer,
with every bone sticking out and ev
erv -hair standing on end. The meet
ing houe was the rudest kind of a
Structure, and so-small that half the
seven hundred churche members
_sJood outside, which was just as well
fS?mg themarvelous elocutionary
p*^svers of the minister. The service
began before 12 and never slacked
an Instant till 4. Every brother as he
came in shook hands all round, and
every sister made a courtesy. Many
of" them were so black you could not
pee them but for their flashy turbans
and white aprons. They sang up
roariously, keeping time with their
feet, till the minister appeared, when
the si nging grew louder still and wild
er; ' and their bodies rocked more
and more. He ga^e out a hymn.
Everybody sang-it was enough to
lift the Toof-the strangest melody
and music. They have a harmony
"all their own, very many parts, and
no corresponding to our harmony and
usually minor. They stood, and as
the music swelled, their jpowerful
bodies.swayed and rolled in a mass
and the billowy roar was like unto
the sea. It was magnificent. Sud.
dealy .it ceased, and the entire fem
inine, crowd dropped a courtesy. Then
a prayer by ont of the deacons who
wound them up to a shouting pitch?
and^th?rihimster read another hymn :
"God moves in a mischievous way,"
and another line, " Judge not the
Lord by feeble sainls."
Negro preaching is usually a fer
tig description of heaven and hell,
flb^f resurrection and judgment; of
sin and salvation, too, in a general
way, but with nothing practical, and
a fe whither of preachers or hearers
know what sin or salvation mean.
This was the farewell sermon, and
most harrowing, and as the preacher
kindled and glowed the fire caught ard
blazed like the pine knots they burn
the sisters began to wail and scream, the
brothers to shout ; tears and moans
. an?Tgro?ns were on every hand ; they
wruDg and clasped and clapped their
hands, swung their bodies, leaped
an4-danced, flinging out their arms .
they whistled and yelled, crooned^
Cheered, chirruped, tattooed, and
howled, and at short intervals came
a sharp report, possibly at your very
ear, like a loud pistol, till the whole
was in the wildest tumult. But a
close observer could see through all a
certain order, a melody even ; it was
a sert of natural symphony, and con
soled by one hand and will, and at
the will of the preacher, inferior as
he looked in comparison with many
of his hearers, the blast softened, the
rumble ceased, and all was still as the
grave. The minister who was consump
tive, declared that he was al most dead,
.but he prayed with undiminished
force, and thus: " 0 Lord, we do be
seech dee to sen' de locomotive of dy
Holy Spirit clown into de camp of de
Philistines an' convert all de sin
ners."
Next came the contribution, when,
for~three quarters of an hour they
s^og-and danced, while the people
deposited their tickets-very slowlyf
for they have little money and less g
confidence in these that receive it fi
At length the minister became impa- t
tient and shouted : " We has got to o
raise $5 mo,' an' I tell ye now, ye'
won't get a mite o' sacrament till
ye've raised it," and the tramp began?
afresh. After receiving several into
the church, we had communion, and
600 partook. All through the ser
vice the music continued, often very
beautiful. They sang Old Hundred
and St. Martin's with decided varia
tions of their own, and "Jesus, lover
of my soul," to a minor tune of ex
ceeding sweetness. As the women
left the altar they dropped a courte
sy, as they did after each exercise. A
number were baptized and received
on probation, and then the. babies
were brought, dark blossoms in white
vestments, with gay streamers. A
name was asked. "Cuffy Austin,"
"Cuffy !" exclaimed .the minister
with some anger. M What do you
gib your chile such a name as that
for? Cuffy ain't nonams't all ! Don't
neber gib a chile no such nickname ;
he'll be 'shamed on it as soon as he
knows anything." Again he inquir.
ed the name, and the woman was
mad and flung out : "Cliffy Austin !"
The pastor took the child in his anns
sprinkled some water on its head, and
said ; "I baptize thee, Cuffy Austin,
io ignorance," and that is all the
christening that baby had.
A couple then appeared to be mar
ried, but the minister said he was too
tired to marry them that day, and
they would have to wait till he came
next time. Ile was then so exhaust
ed that we began to fear we should
have a dead man to carry home. He
was not quite through, however. The
principal steward of the church, a
fine-looking, full-blooded negro, who
sat behind the altar and was partic
ularly active, was called to account
for appropriating church funds, and
dismissed from his office. He did not
take it at all to heart, and the whole
assembly looked upon it as quite a
regular proceeding.
New Zealand Cherries.
Yesterday a fruit dealer on Mark
et 6treet, incensed ht the liberties
taken by the loafers with his wares
displayed at the door, placed a half
gallon of Cayenne peppers in a bask
et, labelled it " New Zealand
Cherries," and hung it in a con
spicuous place in front of his stand.
In a few minutes the next-door mer
chant sauntered up, inquired hov/
trade was, picked up a New Zealand
cherry, placed it in his mouth, and
suddenly left to attend a customer.
The Rev. Er. Bolly next rounded to,
observed that the yellow fever news
from Memphis was not very encour
aging this morning, and-ah ! it had
been years since he had eaten a NTew
Zealand cherry; whereupon he ate
one, remarked that it was superb,
wiped his- weeping eyes on his coat
sleeve, suppled that New Zealand
was getting warmer every "year, wisb>
ed the dealer good morning, and de
parted, lamenting the growing weak
ness^of his eyes in the sunlight. A
chronic deadbeat then came iii), took
a mouthful of cherries, and sputtered
them ont, with an imprecation -all
over the fruit, st uffed a pear, a bana
na and a bunch of grapes into his
mouth to take out-the taste, J n for in -
ed the dealer he would Jaave him
prosecuted for keapiug green fruit,
and went down the street to the fire
plug. A lady with two children
next appeared, stopped t^a^.rnire the
cherries, asked if she mightn't just
taste them-she never had seen any
before-supplied the children and
walked away-walked away with
a face fiery with -corn and anger,
while the children set up a howl that
brought all the people to the doors
and windows, and drove all the po
licemen off the street. Thus the fun
went- ou all the morning. The fruit
dealer never laughed so much iu his
life. The occupants of the adjacent
and opposite shops, and a shoal of
small boys, soon learned what was
up, and watched and joined in a ring
ing roar as each new victim tried th**
cherries. Finally a solemn-looking
countryman lounged up, inquired the
price of them ere New Zealand cher
ries, invested in a pint, put one in
his mouth, took it out again, gave
the fruit dealer a lingering look of
mild reproach, pulled off his. coat and
"waded into" him. When he ?lift,
the fruitman with tendencies to prac
tical jokes had a blue eye; rt red nose
a purple face, a sprained wrist, and
several bushels of fruit scattered
around among the small boys, while
the same ringing roar of laughter
was going up from the lookerson.

Useless Studies.
The other day a young girl of our
acquaintance, who is pursuing a se
lected course of study in one of the
collegiate institutions of the city, was
examining the printed curriculum
with reference to deciding what study
Bhe should take up next term. While
consulting about the matter, she read
over fhe long list of text boolee oh
science, language, literature and
mathematics, when suddenly she ex
claimed : "I'll tell you what I would
like to study-I would like to study
medicine. I don't mean that I wan't
;o be a physician and practice, but
>nly to know what to do at home if
mybody is sick or anything happens.
[ am sure that it would be more use
ul to me thau"-and she turned to
,he pres ribed course of study-"than
ipherical trigonometry and naviga
ion. What's the use of my studying
?avigation? But we can't run for the
loctor every time anybody sue izss
ir coughs, and I would like to know
vhat to do for any one who is H little
ick." Here ir, a matter concerning
irhich young women need some simple
.ut careful instruction. But who

brother left in their charge burns his
hand or is seized with croup how
many of them know "the best thing to
do while waiting for the doctor? And
when, as wives and mothers, the du

have any practical knowledge which
will help them to meet calmly and in
telligently the every day experiences
of accidents and illness which are
inevitable in every family ?-Har

"She is nobody! Only a post-trad
.er's wife," said the pretty Mrs. Belk
nap, with a toss cf the head. It was
only a sentence, but it hurled the
speaker and those dear to her from a
position long held and highly prized,
and brought to light transactions that
made Americans for a time almost
lose faith in public men.
Only one Marshal failed to obey
commands at Waterloo on that mem
orable ISth of June, but it broke the
proud heart of Napoleon, caused de
feat to be written on the French ban
ner, which hereiofore had only vic
tory inscribed thereon, and brought
untold glory to Wellington, and joy
to the allied English and German
troops. Of this defeat Thiers wrote :
"As for this battle, no one can deny that
the plan and execution were all that
could be expected of a commander."
It was only Grouchy who was to
blame, and he was only a little too
late, but Napoleon died in exile be
cause of it.
Only a child left within a burning
house. Who would enter at the risk of
life and save him? He was saved, and
after year3 proved that it was a life
worth saving to the church and the
world. It was the immortal Wesley.
Only one risk more. "Stock smnst
go up; all will be retrieved.. Hun
dreds of mortgaged homes and pen
niless widows in California to-day
can tell the rest.
Only a fallen girl. Years ago she
was pure and happy. It was only
oue false step at first, but years of
mis.u-y have followed. May God
show mercy to the fallen one.
Only ' one glass more. The
thirst cannot be quenched. Djwn>
down the victim goes, saying: "'Only

of iodine "imparts color to seven thou

Piggy Forty Years Ago.
[Lc tr I'M Co., A'//,, Letter /o Hiat/srillc Rep.]
Ten thousand hogs a season have
been knovvn to be driven through and
out of Lewis county. In ?rogqt? th.9
bogs were engaged and in September
herded. No cash was paid, but time
[riven until the return of thc drover
in December or January. At this
lay co ask a mm to driven lot of
hogs from her J to Riehmand, Ya.,
would be. viewed as one of the im
possibilities. With the present stock
and breeds it would be. Hogs forty
years ago had boue and muscle
tvere bred for travel-while the hogs
of the present day are small boned,
.lestitute of endurance. Hogs of far
ly years ago were free of disease, and
the llesh in layers of lean and fat ;
to-day's breed is solid fat. The State
road led up the banks of thc Ohio to
Gnyandotte; from thence across to
charleston, up the Kanawha, over tho
Alleghenies, down the Blue Ridge
into the valleys of Virginia. Ten
niles a day was a great drive. One
?undre'd hogs were assigned to each
Iriver. Every hog knew his drove
md driver Ninety days . was the
;ime required io complete the jour
ley. The hog drivers were a jolly
et. The experience and experiment
aught them patience and endurance,
Cjie .boss rode in ad v*nee of his drove,
0 buy corn and provide for each
light's lodging. Two meals a day
vas the allowance. The lame or
traggling bogs were left on the road,
nd would come up in the night and
oin the original drove, r.-ady for
Qorning feed and an early start.
?He,$ric: "paid'in tliosC days was
rom seventy-five cents to $1.50 per
00 pounds. The prices realized
fould be from $1 to ?3 per 100
lotinds, 'owing to thc time given. The
rivers would foot it back home. On
heir arrival the doors of all the
eighborhood would open to receive
hem, and enjoy the detailed ind
ents of the long journey. The boss
Tou'd return some weeks afterwards
nd then was the grand pay-day.
'hose that had claims would congre
ate at Clarksburg, get their pay,
Jttle store bills and make engage
tents for the coming hog season.
