The following verses, published in the 8L Louis Oloe-Democret, are from the pen of the late Colonel A. W. Slaybemk: Upon my mantel in a row Four simple pictures glow, With shining frames about them placed Of neat and modest taste; Four images of daughters mine. Whose faces beam with light divine, And here I've made my shrine. The place is more like sacred ground Than any I have found; No dome of fresoo reared by art Can so impress my heart; 'Tas here I feel remorse begin, With contrite grief for every sin; And faults that close to crime skin, Make heaven so hard to win. And here my soul, remote from erowds, Is shadowed by no clouds; Aloof at last from tangling care, I lift to God my prayer, And he that doth in secret see In secret seems to answer me, For sake of these that I may be From secret sin kept free. Alone, I seek at this pure shrine The face of God divine, In public no one is sincere, For all are tinged with fear; But here my heart is all laid bare To him who doth for sparrow care; To him I lift a parent's prayer: "Wilt thou these children spare?" This is my prayer I say and feel, As at my shrine I kneel, And lo! though absent far and wide; I think them at my side, And hosts celestial come and go On radiant wings as white as snow Till heaven above and heaven below Have made my shrine aglow. But no intruding eye could see The light that shines on me; Four little pictures on the wall To others would be all; And yet to me the thought is given Of such the kingdom is of heaven, And from this shrine despair is driven. By hope to be forgiven. Auocur 28,1874. THE LAND OP MODDY.

Then when the morning breaks, Then when the lark awakes, We wall leave the drowsy dreams, And the twinkling, starry streams; We will leave the little tent, And the wonders in it pent, To return to our native sod.

Russla estimates the value of the Siberian gold mines at $6,000,000 a year. Kansas has contributed her quota of 400, 000 fat steers for market this season. The Texas cotton crop for 1882 is expected to be from 1.500,000 to 1,000,000 bales. Nearly forty thousand persons have been vaccinated this year in Paterson, N. J. Talmage hse lately shown signs of failing. His congregations have refused to laugh. Vivisection is to be rigidly prohibited throughout Sweden by order of the Govern ment. Parnell, it is whispered in England, is etbout to be made a peer, In order to get rid of him. It costs New York city almost $7,000,000 per year to run herchurches. Itcosts money to be good. Georgia exports 500.000,000 feet of lum ber annually, which strips 95,000 acres of timber laud. F. Antesy, whose novel, "Vice Versa," is all the rage in England, is believed to be a second Dickens. Seventeen thousand five hundred and for tv five stray dogs were taken into custody in London during 1881. The acquittal of Bob Ford, an Eastern paper thliks, indicates the ultimate vindica tion of Frank James. Caleb Hobbs, a negro of Lincolnton, N. C., was so grieved over the death of a favor ite mule that he committed suicide. Henry Stevens, proprietor of the Keystone Foundry at Reading, Pa., has a wrought-iron ploughshare that bears the date 1726. It Is a curious fact that the only descend ants of Daniel Webster should be also the descendantsof the father of Napoleon Bona parte. The stock raisers of Colorado estimate the aggregate value of their flocks and herds at $36,000,000. The number of horned cattle is placed at 250,000. New York's total church expenses foot up about $6,600,000 each year. This is not a very large sum, considering the millions that are spent for whisky. Crime is said to be increasing at a fright ful rate in France. During the twenty-five years ending 1880, it is said that 10,000 mur deas were committed. The country Is not at war and the laws are enforced in every to vslhip in America, and yet the income of otne pistol manufacturer In the East is $2,000 per day. Brnson Alcott, the sage of Concord, who is probably on his deathbed, is within ten days of eightythree years old. He was born on the 27th o. November, 1799. L' Union Medicanle says that all attempts to acclimatize rats In the islands of the Pa cife Ocean have failed. A rat ranks in native estimation there as a canvashack duck does here. Judge Lochrane, of Georgia, bas a walking stick turned with a duck's head on top. In the duck's bill is a sapphire that cost $060, and the eyesare made of diamonds that cost $7,100 each. The oldest printer aetually engaged in his profession is Grandpa Prescott, in Iowa, who at the age of ninety years sets type every working day in the composing room of the Corning Gazette. It is a singular fact that all the leading British generals are diminutive men. Sir Granet Wolseley is only five feet six inches in height, while Sir F. Roberts is just about five feet-nothing. The coal oil style of obituary is rivalled by the following touching sendoff received by a South Carolina woman : "She went to sleep with a lighted pipe in her mouth and woke up in the other world." It is proposed to give Admiral Seymour and General Wolseley $250,000 each for their services in Egypt. If that is whatthey demand, their avarice does not compare un favorably with that of Dr. Bliss. Consul Stevens writes from China that the ebain pumps which were sold largely in thi country not many years ago, hive been In use in China over two tbousand years. Double headed taeks, too, have been used there for many centurits. Attorney General Brewster has recently dismissed hisb confidential messenger who is none other than the colored man Simm., whose arrest in Boston as a fugitive slave, before the war, created such ekieltement iln Massachusetts and the other free States. - Capt.

Loutsvllle Coemuercaal. Last nilb as a Commercial re porter was loesing through the car ridors of the Gait Howe listening to the friendly clatter of the ea tgneers, a group of veterans, seated around one of the pillars, laughing over old stores, drew the news man tward them. "Did you ever hear how Jim HBamtt brought De runlak from Nashville to Louisville' asked one of the Loouville engineers. "Well, you all know Jim, I gues, or know of him. He can make the fletest time on the Louisville and ashville when he wants to. He has been in a dosen wrecks and got ht In all of them. I don't believe there is a sound bone in little Jim's body, but the more bumps and knocks he gets, the faster he wants to ran. About two years ago De Funaak was down at Nashville and had important business that requlred his immediate presence in Louisville. He was then general manager of the Louisville and Nashville and ordered the road clear bo tween the two cities. Then he looked for an engineer to haul him through. Hamett was just in off of his run and De Funlak knew he was just the man. He sent for him and said: "'Mr. Hamett, I want to get to Louisville as soon as possible. The road's clear; you won't find any obstruction. Will you take me P' "Hamett's eyes sparkled, but he touched his hat and said quietly: 'I'll try, sir.' Any man who knows Jim Hamett would know what that meant. Deo lunlak had his car coupled on right next to the tender and an other car behind. Jim climbed up into his engine (he can't walk straight since the last wreek,) and there was, a kind of a smile hanging around his mouth. The train pulled out of the depot at Nashville as the negro porter was Axing the dishes in the side-beard. They started ouat a pretty lively gait and went on increasing it. The conductor in the back car began to get un easy for be hadn't heard Jam's instructions. Every minute the train went faster and fast er. Houses and trees and fences became a blurred line. The cars Jumped and rolled and rocked like mad animals wanting to leap from their place of confinement. The porter began to look frightened. The train instead of slacking increased its speed. No body in De Funlak's car could remain in the seats without desperately clutching to the seat in front. It seemed impossible for the cars to remain on the track, they bounded and rolled so violently. The dishes in the sideboard rolled out, the bed fell In the middle of the floor, chairs were rent from their fastenings; but the porter didn't care a straw for that-he thought his time had come, and was praying desperately. "De Funlak, with his expressionless face, was calmly holding on to some straps bang ing from the ceiling and waving at Hamett through the back door to go on. The con ductor grabbed the bell cord and nearly jerked it off. He firmly believed that if they escaped with their lives both he and the engineer would be discharged as soon as they reached the city. Jim was sitting oe his seat in the engine calmly smiling and paying not the least attentiou to the frantic conductor. About a hundred miles from Nashville Jim got a couple of hot boxes and had to stop. He made the hundred miles in about 87 minutes, about the fastest time on the road. There wasn't a bit of furniture left in De auniak's car. There was a con fused heap of broken plates, pictures and chairs and that was all. Jim was outside calmly limping around, and cursing the hot boxes between times, when De Funlak came out of the car aid brusquely told Jim he had made a fast run. "'Not very fast, sir,' said Jim. 'If I bad run as fast as she can go it wouldn't have only broke your plates and pietures, but there wouldn't bhave been a bit of the isdlee of the car left. That was a mighty peoor run sIr, a mighty poor run.' The porter resigned a soon as he got to town and always goes I by boat now, when be can." HEROISM ON THE RAIL. A ONjllant Vomanteer aves a Crowded Pa. senger Tral. New York Herald. An experiment with an ingenious device by the Pennsylvania Railroad Company will prove costly to the family of August Seeds, a reliable employee of the concern, who has held his position as engineer for tweaty years. The omclals of the company on the New York division were favorably impressed with a patent contrivance which was lntend ed to supersede the safety valve. This ap paratus was to relieve the pressure on the boiler when it reaheod 132 pounds and car ry off the steam and heat through pipes to the smoke arch at the base of the of smoke stack. This arrangement has worked une cesfully with eaglina using bard sal, but there has been considerable diMculty with thoe burning soft coa.

A party of Texan wagoners, after a bard day's pull, were chatting around the camp fire while they smoked their pipes. "Sambo, me bboy," exclaimed Pat, a rollicking Irish- I man, to a Jolly darkey, "tell us what makes I your noe so fit." "Dun'no Mars' Pat," answered Sam, "but 'sped it's to keep me from pokin' my noes into adder peaple's business." A fountain In the public squaro of San Francisco needed painting. Ai artist agreed to do It for nothing, provided he could take I as much time as he pleased for the job, and erec afence to protect him from idle eriosl ty while at work. But It seems that the painter has sold the surface of the fence to advertisers, and nobody knows how long he will be painting the fountain. An old negro professed to be indifferent as to a future state, believing that "dey'll make nigers work eben In beaben." A clergyman tried to argue him out of his opinion by rep. resettaing that there was no work for him or any one else in heaven. "You go 'way, maasa," was bhis reply, "I know better! If dere's no udder work for culled pusons up dere, day'll make him shub declouds along!" Poor Way to Make a Living. Discussing the eagerness with which gov. eroment olces and clerkships are sought for the New York Observer has the following remarks on a question of vital importance to parents and teachers, to-wit: How shall we make our young men and women self-re specting ad industrious: Washington is besieged with applicants for places in the Pension Office. Several hundred additional clerkships bhaving been provided for. Numbers of the applicants are women. who are said to manifest Intense anxiety In regard to their success. It is pit Iable to read the accounts of this struggle for positions, which are by no means envia ble, and a stbe precarious. Individual mis fortune frequently leads to sore extremitles. But the wholesale rush for Government of Sees of the lowes clam in Washington and many other cities reveals a most depressed .endition of affalrs with large numbers. Very few of thee persons would enter into bthis contest for public places it they had other resouree. As a mass, they must be either anwlling or unftted to engage in any one of hundreds of occuapations which are oenstantly in need of workers. In the im mediate vicinalty of New York, men of means are compelled constantly to labor beyond their strengltb, beause they cannot obtain amlstance at high wages. Itmatters little as to what is wanted to be done, the employer as a rule findsod It diicult to obtain tbose who are able and willing to delt well. Emigrants may he poured out upon our shores at the rates ef a bohundred tbousand every month, i and not one man or one family need suffer · for the want of work and pay. SWhece this growintg desire for the uncer tan work and small py of public oeicee? Doubtles it is one of the reults of unlver. Isal education, training boys to write and clper, without prepariug them for any def ate sphere In whbieb to earn a Ilvelblheod. They grow ap with an acquired distaste r manal labor, and with an ambition to live I someI way whleb will gratify their notions of social standing. We are compelled to leok i thli dlresa fr the mesem of thie aneural oead let for place in tohis land of speuab.adeit opportunItie. uMnt have ar peat espoesiblity in this miter.

A marnket Asses of er arl t00 -eet e wuase by a * agareemt View. WAsl2esaor, October 2S.-If one feels a desire to sup full on honors in Washington, thee is no way in which success is so speedy nd certaln as an ascent o the 876 feet of the unfinished Washington monument. Al though no accident of any kind whaterer has happened slnme the work was begun, ow. g to the admirable precautions that have been observed, the mere coontemplation of the dangers to be avoided would give Gen. Washington blhmeel, It he were alive, the cold creeps. It must be remembered that the monument is already among the highest structurse in the world, while the transporta tion of the gigantle blocks of stone to the top is something which has no parallel in this country, and has seldom been equalled anywhere. Whether the ascent is calculated to inspire fear or not may be Imagined frheom the reply made by one of the highest omclals lt Washlsgton to the inquiry: "Were you not just a little frightened going pP' ",Frightened! I was perfectly terrifiedi" was the hearty reponse given with all the force of emphaels. The ascent is made by the elevator, which runs through the middle of the great obe lisk. This elevator is a mere open platform, which does not deserve the name of the alll vator, as Mrs. Gen. Gillory puts it; it is rather the terrifier. Every time It goes up It carries from five to ten tens of stone, and the only way for visitors to get to the top is to huddle around the immense mass of stone on the diabolical looking machine. The platform begins to move slowly and laborl ously upward, grinding and creaking at every inch from the enormous weght It lifts. In half a minute the light of day totally dis appears, and at that moment the horrors of the position suddenly swoop down upon me. To be dangling hundreds of feet above a chasm with only a rope between a fall to bottom with 10,000 pounds of stone is enough to appal any Imagination. Although the darkness is blackness inconceivable, and the intense silence broken only by thegroan ing of the great mas feeling Its way pain fully upward, yet the frightful abyss appears to become of itself both audible and visible. The last 150 feet of balancing between heaven and earth is like hanging between life and death. Even the elevator man gives up his heroic efforts to keep up the spirits of the party. At length light from the top begins to ap pear, and In a minute or two a pallid party of pleasure seekers step out on the platform at the top, nearly four hundred feet in the air. There is an enormous iron structure running through the middle of the obelisk and around this the stone Is blocked. S1i feet are added every week in three tiers of two foot blocks. The structure is then six feet above the temporary platform, which is thereupon raised, and the work of bringing it six feet above the level is recommenced. A net work of rope is securely fixed around the top of the shaft, extending several feet off, to catch any unfortunate man who might drop ever-the workmen are compelled to be on the very verge in order to complete the outer layer of stone. A young lady not long since, In a spirit of bravado, threw herself into this life saving net. A weak spot ton the rope would have sent her nearly 400 feet to the earth. A contrivance like the rigging of a ship is on top of the shbaft, and the wind howls through it with ominous force. When a tier or two of stone is laid the workmen are protected in a measure fromthe violence of the wind, but they acknowledge that when they are working on a level it Is some. thing terriic. aing errwnc. If anythlug could repay one for the bor. rors of the ascent it would be the view after reaching the top. Even the moat hardened sightaeer must be enthusiastic at the great panorama spread out before him. The vast Treasury building looks like a Lilliputian house. The plan of Washington becomes as well defined as achecker board. The full grandeaur of the Capitol is then for the first time realised. When it is remembered that the Capitol is of almost the identical dimes. slonu of the great pyramid and of St. Pe ter's, being perhaps a few feet longer than either, it may seem that it has nothing to lose by looking at it from any point of eleva. tion. Everything else grows minute from the top of the monument except the white splendor of the Capitol. It seems to be on a mountain instead of a hill, anud amid the diminishing of every other object the great white dome stands grandly out, so high that it looks as though poised in air. A look at the elevator and a proposition to descend is enough to kill any enthusiasm, however. But it is by comparison with the ascent simply delightful. There is no moun tlan of stone to make one faney how it would make one feel to go to the bottom of the hideous bole with it. To the simultaneous and earnest assurances made to the elevator man that nobody in the party would ever do so any more, he sardonically replied, "All of 'em say' that." Vamily Libraries. Every family should be supplied with books, and each boasehold should, as far as their abilty will allow, procure a family library. Ther is no estimating the value of a few well selected books.
