LITEHABT.
A spell ago, it was the ''snow the snow,
the beautiful ßnow," and tor the last eek it
has been the rain, the dripping rain that
has played the deuce with us generally, up
petting all calculations and knocking lit-
oraries and evervthine else skv-hieh and
a-whizzing.
Nevertheless quite a large crowd, and
most certainly a pleased one, gathered at the
'Drop,' Monday night, and listened eagerly
to the fine programme prepared for the
evening. The first of the fine things of the
evenincr which commanded our admiration
was the singing of the ''Sea King's Burial,1
(Russell), by Samuel Jones, Esq. Suffice it
to say that in common with most everything
attempted by that gentleman, there was very
little room for criticism. Miss Katie Stew
art, by special request, attended him on the
orean. The address ot Mr. Ed. Outland
was also in keeping with the gentleman's rep
utation as an orator, and pleased the Society
very much. The Closing Year,' (Prentice)
by "NV. A. Sweeney, being through with, the
ballad .tareweir was sung by tne iewenen
sisters in a grand and beautiful manner.
Mr. S. Early's essay, the 'Exodus, was a
very interesting paper and well read. J. T.
V. llill, Esq., being present, made by request,
a short address, eloquent and logical.
The programme for next Monday night
will be a reading bv Miss Henry E. Davies:

Subject of debate Kesolved, "that tne

Affirmative Ed. Outland, Sam Early;
Negative Jacob Franklin, raul Scott.
Although not so large a gathering as
usual, the exercises at the 'Garfield were
very pleasing and entertaining. Owing to
the absence ol most ot those upon tne regu
lar procrramma, the house nsolved itself
into the committee of the whole, to discuss
the question. Resolved, "that the Govern
ment oi the United btates of America is
destined to decline and fall." The music,
vocal and instrumental, furnished for the
eveninr. was crandly and artistically ren
dered bv the .Misses Fry. who, sineing for
- . , - ' ir, a - j
I decided hit. The same ladies will sing again
next Tuesday nignt, accompanied Dy
a gentleman (basso), whose name
we did not learn, and a very fine
artist. There will also be a challenge
debate between J. T. V. Hill and Sam
Early.
The reading of the 'Kaven,' by request, by
AV. A. Sweeney; ''Chants the Robin," duett,

POLITICAL.
- It is said the Democrats will make no
nomination to-day against Clerk Magner.
Wm. Powell is announced as an inde-
nendent candidate for Councilman in the
Thirteenth Ward.
Ernest L. Hassell, a hard-working Repub
lican, is the nominee for Councilman of the
Eighth Ward. He will go into the Counci
with a rousing majority.
Councilman Peter F. Bryce was renomi
nated by acclamation at the Seventeenth
Ward primary last week This is one of
our best nominations, and will be heartily
endorsed by the people of that ward.
The Democrats will nominate their city
ticket to-day. Prof. Smart, J. L. Mitchell
and other well known citizens have been
spoken of in connection with the nomina
tions, but no one seems to be extremely anx
ious for the nomination.
The colored voters of this city are in a
more satisfied state of mind than were our
brethren in Cincinnati and Chicago just pre
vious to the recent elections. The Republi
can ticket in this city is composed of the
right kind of timber, and not only deserves,
but will receive the unanimous support of
the colored voters. This vote always
counts.
The City Committee rendered its decision
in the Fourth Ward nomination muddle last
week, bv referring the matter of nomina
tion back to the ward, and instructing the
Chairman of the (Committee to call a pri
marv for another nomination. This action
is certainly satisfactory, and should meet
with the approval of every Republican in
the ward.

Making the Best of it.
There is no element that enters more
largely into the happiness and general com
fort of society than the disposition to make
the best of what happens. Good and evil,
or what we esteem as such, come to us all at
different times and in various ways, but the
message they bring and the effect they pro-
duce are chieflv determined bv the wav we

agreeable? lhey receive it all without re-
joicing, as a matter of course and only what
hey had a right to expect. Does adversity

rows, and recounting tnem to others, in
dwelling upon the very worst side, an
treasuring it up, lest they should forget any
of its bitterness, that it is only with the
greatest difficulty that they can be induced
to turn at length to the future and throw
themselves into its duties and its hopes.
On the other hand, there are those who
place the emphasis of their lives upon the
happy side They dwell with pleasure upon
all the joys that come to them; they speak
freely and gratefully of them, and thus com
municate something of their own gladness
to others. They take also a sincere interest
in the various pleasures of their friends, in
creasing them by their genial sympathy and
hearty congratulations. When failure or
disappointment, bereavement or misfortune
overtakes them, though sutfering as keenly
and grieving as deeply as any, they 6hrink
from makin; loud laments or inflicting
needless pair, upon others. They instinc
tively feel that the time has come for Eilence
and privacy, and that the lesson to be
learned is that of patient endurance and a
brave return to cheerfulness and duty.
They do not refuse to look upon the brighter
side of the cloud, they do not utterly lose
heart and hope, they do not bury them
selves in a selfish indulgence of sorrow, but
rather 6trive to bury their sorrow in their
own hearts, and rise with accumulated
strength to the duties of the present and the
hopes of the future.
Not only are the grave and serious events
of life received thus differently, but also the
little every-day details, upon which so much
of our comfort and pleasure depends. Some

too much to do, and are driven to death;
or too little, and have no resources. If they
are sick iney Know iney snau never get
well; if they are well, they expect soon to
ut3 oii; iv. uumciruiu is eure iu uisiuru meir
sleep; their food is never quite to their taste;
they have corns which every one treads on,
or a toothache which no one realizes. Their
daily work is either drudgery, which
they hate, or so difficult and complex
that they cannot execute it. To hear
the prolonged recital of their pettv woes
one would think they were the most perse
cuted of mortals; and when people shrink
from the disagreeable catalogue their lack
of sympathy adds another drop to their cup
of troubles. Yet these people have no more
real cause for repining than the rest of the
world. They are more wretched, it is true,
and spread their wretchedness with a liberal
hand around them, but that is simply be
cause they emphesize all that is unpleasant
and ignore the rest, thus making the worst
they can of both.
In contrast to these, we sometimes meet
with men and women, so bright and cheery
tnat tneir very presence is a positive pleas
ure. They discover the lavorable side of
the weather, of their business, of home sar
roundings, of social relations, even of polit
ical affairs. They will tell you of all the
pleasant things that happen, and give voice
to all the joy they feel. Of course they are
sometimes annoyed, perplexed and worried
by petty troubles, but the verv effort they
make to pass them over silently diminishes
their unpleasant effect upon themselves, and
prevents the influence from extending. To
make the best of the thousand details of
every-day life, as they arise, is a great
power for good in human lite, and one which
every man and every woman can wield.
Then, too, we can make the best of one
another. There is plenty of room for praise
and ror Diame in every one one we meet.
Virtue and demerit, intelligence and folly,
strength and weakness, are mingled in every
variety and degree. Here also the question
of emphasis comes in. When we pick a per
son to pieces, expose his follies, criticise his
manners, question his motives and condemn
his actions, we are making, not the beat, but
the worst of him. If, on the contrary, we
search for his good points and bring them
to the front; if we make all allowances for
his faults and errors and withdraw them as
much as possible from the notice of others,
we are making the best of him, both in arv
pearance and in reality. In shielding his
reputation we are preserving for him the
respect of other?, which goes far toward
Eromoting his own self- respect. Every one
as at times telt the spur to good conduct
that is given by the consciousness that others
think well of him and expect good things of
him. It arouses all the energy of the nature
to retain such esteem, and to prove that it
was noi unmeruea. ah good and all evil
mav be larcrelv strengthened and rtvnlnrort
by being drawn attention, and may likewise
be weaken d and crushed by being icr ored
or dropped out of sight. Thus, when by
our emphasis we are honestly making the
best of things and of people, we are not
only increasing the happiness of the world,
but also strengthening and enhancing the
good that is in it.

There is much pleasure to be had in list
ening to a nice old lady as she gossips of the
people and customs and things of long ago;
as she tells of a society that passed away ere

there is no place for such harsh crudities as

in the long run, telling her story in her own

times she may treat decorouslv of thn

with no thought of malice, yet in a fashion
to make the backs of some of the nowadavs

Nearly twenty-five years ago a citizen
Brattleboro, Vt., was surprised one day
of
at
finding the figure of an angel molded in
