My Mother.
BT BlZAltltH.
Back through the lapse of lonely years,
Of light and shade, and bitter tears,
I seem to hear
My mother's voice, soft, sweet and low—
My motbor'a voice, ah! well I know
Its aadence dear.
Oft sitting, when the night bird wings
His homeward flight, and softly sings
A plaintive song,
Then momory waves her magic wand,
And summons from the silent land
Dear ones long gone.
Again I stand by mother's knee,
Again her sainted face I sec,
As In a dream.j
Then asks my heart, with voice of tears,
For her alas the sad, snd years
Lie dark between.
O! mother, from that sphere diTine,
On wings of light cleave realms of time,
Como thou to me
If for ouly a little space,
That I may look on thy dear face,
One moment sse,
As once I saw, thy tender cyi s,
That know not tears in Paradho,
Grieved no more.
I watch for thee, O! mother dear
I listen, und seem to hear
Thy songs float o'er
That lonulv river deep and wide,
Which darkly rolls Its Stygian tide
Prom shore to shore
Silent and deep through lonely years,
Swollen with bitter farewell tears
Forever more.
Trusting, I'll wait while life lasts hero,
Till in that grand, immortal sphere,
Where sorrows cease,
We meet andjon thy loving breast
My weary head shall be at rest
In perfect peace.

Tn less than fifteen minutes after I had
issued the order for tho bath, writes a
Paris correspondent, in walked into my
bedroom a strudy fellow, (Alsatian, of
coarse, for all carriers of water and coal
are Alsatians), bearing on his head a cop
per bath tub, and aa he placed it down by
the side of my bed, the silvery bright
metal lining glistened in the morning
rays. Fro a bag suspended around his
neck he drew torth a pure white linen,
made to fit the tub, with which he lined
the tub and artistically turned it down
over the sides, completely covering them
down to the floor. Another Alsatian then
made his entry, bearing in each hand a
large iron bucket burnished on the in
terior like silver, filled with boiling water
clear as crystal, on tho surface of which
floated a round piece of wood to prevent
the water from slopping over on the stairs
The two then descended to tho court
yard and replenished the buckets with

they had brought with them. This was
repeated and then cold water was added

At this season of the year horticultural
papers are every a asked questions as
to what varieties of strawberries to plant.
Many of them venture specific answeres.
But when it is considered that the same
variety varies from first-rate to next to
worthless in different soils and conditions,
it will appear that there is but one ans
wer, a those varieties which
from trial are fojind to succeed best.
Each must experiment for himself. Such
experiments may be made with so little
trouble or expense that it is the fault of
the cultivator and not of the strawberry
if everybody docs not raiso upon his own
grounds those sorts that will thrive best.
N for one dollar plants of all the best
varieties may be purchased. Planted in
good soil this spring and labeled, their
value and adaptability to a particular
place may be ascertained next spring.
After that, there need no longer' be any
doubt or disappointment. Selecting those
which prove in size, flavor, vigor, produc
tiveness, the most desirable, every tamily,
with no more trouble than is required to,
keep down weeds, and form new beds
as the old ones wear out, may be supplied
with this enjoyable fruit, as far superior
to the great bulk of marKCt strawberries
as a banana or orange plucked ripe
from the plant is superior to those
that, piucked green, are left to
ripen and decay simultaneously,
several weeks afterwards.
The qualities of new varieties ot straw
berries are new-a-days so puffed up, that
those who purchase new plants enteitain
a vague expectation that tho berries will
prove sweeter, larger—the vines more
fruitful and hardy than any others here
tofore known. Bu experience with the
strawberry, as with every other fruit, will
demonstrate that man's power of really
improving it is very limited, and that he
never will be able to combine the best
qualities of all in any one variety.
Most of us are very ready to be capti
vated by size.though size and the charac
teristic qualities which make a fruit val
uable are generally inimical. W some
times see strawberries nine and ten inches
in circumference. The are curious and

he Peovideuce Journal says: "The
time has me for the inevitable baby
carriage. A generaiion ago these tilings
were little more than baskets screwed on
to axles without springs. Then a
protest, originally from physicians,
against trundling the little ones over the
pavements in vans which would rack the
bones and addle the brains of the tough
est man. Out of this discussion the mod
ern baby carriage was evolved, and, as
at first constructed, was provided with
real springs, and if used with ordinary
care, did not endanger lite. Gradually
the springs have given away to rigid
strips of iron, imitating springs, leaving
the carriage as unfit and dangerous as a
wheel-barrow for the delicate mission of
transporting an infant over rough cross
ings and along tho average sidewalk.
The baby's tissues will not bear much
jolting. Its brain is gelatinous, and
even its bones soft. Natui has made its
bed in the mother's arms and on the

springless cart is almost murder. Let
any man or woman try riding a short dis
tance, on the smoothest road, in a wagon
without springs. The jar will be found
fatiguing and soon become painful. The
intervention of a cushion or a pillow
docs nof ease it much. If any parent
wishes to get a baby carriage for a child
whose life is worth insuring let him or
her buy none in which the boa pressed
by the hand does not rise and fall easily
on its springs."
Protection Against Mothe.
W have every spring many modes
offered of protecting furs and woliens
agains the destructive attacks of the moth
during warm weather. W have seen
various preparations sold for this purpose
with long accounts appended of their be
ing perfect remedies. Red cedar chests
and closets are recommended, and many
people cumber their houses with them at
considerable expense, only to find out how
grievously they have been disappointed.
The best protection wc ever tried has
been to tie up in close cotton bags all furs
and woollens at all convenient to be so
treated, after giving theju a thorough
shaking aud cleansing, and letting thczn
remain there until they are again wanted.
These bags can ba hung anywhere out of
the way. I there are no moths in the
articles when tied up, there certainly can
none get in afterward if the bags are
sound. All can see that. But when the
clothes or articles are too numerous to
make this' convenient or desirable, han»
up in the wardrobe, after a good shaking,
and place little bags of camphor all over
the wardrobe, laying a few iu the bottom.
Then, about every three weeks, take out
the clothes and shake them up well. N
moths will ever disturb them.—Oer. Tele

ers, Mr. Jame McDermott and compan
ion, started from Gamp Robinson for
Sidney with their teams. The soon
were lost and became separated, and on
last Saturday, Mr. McDermott was found
under the following circumstances:
had wandered for twelve days, accomp
anied by two dogs, without food ot any
kind, exposed to the storm day and night,
sleeping without shelter or covering on
the ground, and had wasted away to a
mere skeleton add to his sufferings,
one day he saw near him some cow boys,
but was.too weak to call loud enough to
attract their attention, and, like a ship
wrecked seaman who sees a sail approach,
but before it come within hailing dis
tance bears away again and disappears,
he saw them pass from him O last
Saturday these same cow boys heard a
faint barking or yelping like that of dogs,
and, following the sound, they came to
them. Th dogs were also reduced to
skeletons, and scarcely had Btrength to
stand, being in the last stages of starva
rion. The cow boys threw them some
meat, but instead of eating it themselves
they picked it up in their mouths, got on
their trembling limbs and tried to carry
it to their master. An thus he was
found. The fact that the dogs refused
to eat tho meat given, although they
"•ere dying of starvation,but attempted to
carry it to t!H famishing master, is tes

Sweeping House.
When the washing aud ironing sre we'l
out of the way, comes the^weeping. A
house to be clean must be swept, we all
know and it all the housekeepers in the
land could give their way of doing it,
nine out of every ten doubtless would
say. Oh, I sweep once or twice a week,
and brush up a little every day.*' Now
it is not to tr housekeeper who has had
the broom question in full consideration
that we offer taese suggestions but it is
to the many who in their hurry siezc a
vicious-looking broom and give the car
pet a good going over." Rather rough
treatment this. It is much better econ
my to keep a nice, new broom for the
carpets let it be hung up and kept for
that sole use. Pu it entirely away, if
there is danger of its being taken to brush
the out-door steps ©r round in the kitch
In sweeping, the dust is to ba brushed
off the surface, and we think a light
broom is better than a heavy one. And
in the first place, let all the delicate orna
ments be put away. Let the bad—if it
is a bedroom—be "carefully covered, and
have upholstered furniture also covered
as far as possible. Then open the win
dows,and after scattering damp tea-leaves
over the floor, sweep clean, but lightly,
using a small broom for the corners and
around the stove. Taking up the dust as
it gathered in little heaps is certainly
neater than rolling the whole mass from
one side of the room to the other. Let
the furniture then bo dusted, wiping it
with a clean dusting-cloth, and many
people forget entirely when this cloth is
filled, t© give it a shake at the window.
W speak of this, for, surprising as it
may seem, ,we laive seen people fairly
rub chintz furniture covers and stuffed
furniture with dusting cloths thfft were
simply tilled with diit.
When a room has b°en thoroughly
swept, dusted, and the little ornaments
returned to their places, one feels that it
is clean and delightful to contemplate
but if this is the sitting-room or the din
ing room, the next thing a few crumbs or
threads are dropped, or sand is brought
in, notwithstanding the mat at the door.
Then comes the brushing up. The scrub
bing room if picked up in a hurry and
flourished over the floor, but there is no
time to dust the furniture. N the
question is, Would it not be better to use
the crumb-cloth under tho dining table,
and oftencr employ the small broom and
the dust-pan, leaving the actual sweeping
tjll it could be nicely done?
In truth, we abhor the brushing-up
business. W visited in a house once
where this stile prevailed. It was a very
pleasant house to vieite except for this.
The mistress was charmingly •agreeable
she could talk, a also knew how to
cook everything a the nicest manner,
without making a fuss about it but wc
could never wear our best black cashmere
dress to the dinner table, for the chairs
were often covered with dust." The
"brushing-up" sometimes took place just
before dinner generally, however, we
were obliged to run before the broom, im
mediately after breakfast. W wanted
perhaps a moment's chat with our friend,
and she always said "Oh, you aro not in
my way!"—but if wc had on a mornins
dress of crimson cashmere, and our hair
was "done up," why then—w hurried
off. Oh, that everlasting broom!
America Exhibits at Paris.
PAKIS, Wedensday, May 1.1878.
'[BrCable to the Aseoclitel Press
The display of scales by Fairbanks fc Co.,
NTew York, is very grand, and creditable to the
exhibitors, showing the advancement made
by the«i over those of any other American or
foreign manufacturers, 'and reflects great
credit on American workmanship. The ex
hibit surpasses all others in merit at the Paris
World's Fair.
Mason & Hamlin, who took the lirtt medal
for their cabinet organs at the exposition in
!«}?, and have won the highest honors at
c\ery world's exhibition since, nrc here in
competition with a line lot of organs. Several
other American makers exhibit, but a few if
any of them will venture to compete.

Investigators of natural science have de
monstrated beyond controversy, that through
out the animal kingdom the "survival of the
Attest" is the only law that vouchsafes thrift
aud perpetuity. Docs not the same' principle
govern the commercial prosperity of man
An inferior cannot supersede a superior arti
cle. Illustrative of this principle arc the fata,
ily medicines of R. V. Pierce, M. D., of Buffa
lo, N. Y. By reason of superior merit, they
have outrivaled all other medicines. Their
sale in the United States alone exceeds one
million dollars er annum, while the amount
exported foots up to several hundred thous
and more. No business could grow to such
gigantic proportions and rest upon any other
basis than that of merit. It is safe to sav that
or offi-cers, always with W beneath S
Pierce's Golden Medical discovery, for the
cure of coughs, colds, and all pulmonary
and blood affections. If the bowels becon
stipsted and liver sluggish, his Pleasant Pur-
Pellets will give prompt relief while
is Favorite Prescription will positively, per
fectly, and permanently, cure those weakness,
es and "dragging-down" sensations peculiar
to females. In the People's Common Sense

one thousand pages, the Doctor has fully dis
cussed the principles that underlie health and
sickness. Price $1.50, post-paid. Adapted to
old and young, single and married. Address

A firm in New York seems unfamiliar with
the London story of the man who offered to
sell real guineas at a trifle, but could find no
buyers. Geo. P. Rowell & Co.,—the "News-
apcr Advertising Bureau," propdie for one
dollars, to put a ten-llne adver
tisement in some thirty standard weeklies, and
to slide it into a thousand other weeklies free.
Do they expect people to take the offer? Any
one acquainted with the high rates of these
standard weeklies can see that the thing is
ridiculous. Rowell & Co. must know very
well that acceptances of the offer would be so
many items to charge to profit and loss. We
retract our insinuation about their ignorance
of that London story. They probably know
it too well, and are shrewd enough, by takin"
advantage of that human trait at which the
story hits, to make a stroke for fame as men
of startling liberality, and at the same time
run no risk of pecuniary loss.
Nervousness and Sleepless nights arc cured
by the use of Dr. Graves' HEART REGU
LATOR. We have the grateful testimonials of
many who have been cured of, this disorder.
For fsubduing the Nerves and bringing the
Heart to,its natural functions Dr. Graves'
HEART REGULATOR has no equal it is not
claimed a cureall but a medicine which goes
straight to its work, relieves the Heart of its
burden, and enables it to produce the blood as
it should, giving life and tone to the system.
If you have any trouble with vour Heart, no
matter how slight, try the-HEART REGU
LATOR and you will say it is a blessing.
