"StTEMPV'S MOTHER."
Toe woman was old, ad ragged fcad, grT
And bent with the chill of a Winter's day ;
The street! were white with a recent snow,
And the woman's feet with age were slow.
At the crowded crossing she waited long,
Jostled. aide by the careless throng
Of huraMTbeings who passed her by,
Unheeding the glance ot her anxious eye.
Down the' street with laughter and shout,
Glad in tho freedom oi "8011001 let out,"
Come happy iyi, lre i tockjof shotp ' j
Balling the mow piled white and deep ;
Past the woman so old and gray,
Hastened the children on their way.
Xone offered a helping hand to her,
So'weak and tisald, afraid to stir,
Lest the carriage wheels or the horses' feet
Should trample her down in the slippery
street.
At last, cjuno out of the merry troup,
The gayest boy of all l,t)e group1.; r .
lie paused beside her, and whispered low,
"I'll help you across, if you wish to go!"
Ilcr aged band on his strong, young arm
She placed, and so, without hurt or harm,
He guided the trembling feet along,
Proud that his own were firm and strong ;
Then back again to his friends bo went,
His young heart happy and well content.
'She's Somebody' Motb.tr boys, you know
For all she's aged, and poor, and slow ;
And some one some time nay lend a hand
To help my mother you understand? 1;,
If ever she's poor, and old, and gray,
And her own dear bay Is far away."
"Somebody's Mother" bowed low ber head
In her home, that night, and the prayer she
said,
Was : "God be kind to that noble boy,
Who Is Somebody's Son,and pride and joy."
Faint was the voice, and worn and weak,
But heaven lists when Its chosen speak;
Angeh caught the faltering word,
And "Somebody's Mother's" prayer was
heard.
COUSIN SHADRACH'S WILL.
"Arc you my aunt Dorcas f"
Mrs. Torrance bad been entertaining a
quilting bee that afternoon, and she bad
got the quilting frame out of the way, tbe
dishes washed np.'aud the apartments -"ti
died," when there came a meek tap at the
door, and there In the April twilight stood
a small figure iu a gray traveling shawl and
holding a bag.
"Sakes alive I" said Mrs. Torrance, "who
be you?"
"I am Emily," said the girl. "Please let
me In, lor 1 am tired and cold. Pre walked
all the way from the station, and I've had
nothing to cat since, noon."
"Well, I never!" said Mrs. Torrance.
"You are the city schoolma'm, ain't you, as
went out to live with cousin Shadrach?
And he's dead, and the money all gone to
the Baptist widow and orphan fund. You
didn't make much by that move, did yon?
And you've come back to us now, though
we wasn't stylish enough for you before
Well, come In, come in."
And Mrs. Torrance, who was essentially
a kind-hearted woman, albeit she could not
repress the sneerthatrosetoherlips.moved
the lower rocker to the fire, and flung, an
other log ou the andirons.
Cousin Shadrach bad been tbe family ap
ple of discord ever since they could remem
ber, lie was rich, he was eccentric, lie was
crabbed.
He had shut tbe door in the face of ell bis
relatives, until toward the last, sick and
feeble, lie had signified his desire that Emi
ly Alden should come and take care of him.
And Emily bad gone.
There had been a spico of jealousy in the
family as regarded Emily for a long time.
Emily bad been looked upon as "proud and
stuck up," because, instead of entering a
factory, or learning the dressmaker's trade,
she had elected to be a teacher. She had
never visited Job Torrance's family until
now now that cousin Shadrach had willed
his money to the Baptist widows and or
phans her own mother wat dead, aad ber
step-father, a pompous old wholesale grocer,
objected to step-children, so that there
seemed to be no other haven of refuge left
to ber.
Who could blame Mrs. Torrance tor a mo
mentary feeling of triumph when Emily Al
den came thus to her door-stone In the twi
light of that April day?
But she helped ber off' with her things,
made a cup of tea for her, and finally escort
ed her to a little room under the roof-tree
where the floor was covered with a home
made rag carpet, and the bed was decorated
with a rainbow, "Job's troubles" quilt, aud
you look out of the window Into agreenlng
meadow where, a wblpfpoor-will platnted
nls melancholy refrain. '
"I hope you will sleep well," said Mrs.
Torrance. "We, cat breakfast at five
o'clock."
And then she went' away.
Early as was the breakfast hour, Emily
was awake at least an hour bclore 1L At
if the tumultuous glee of the robins and
blue birds in the old orchard would permit
any one to sleep. And as she lay with her
cheek against the pillow, watching the rosy
dawn light creep up tbe wall, she beard tbe
sound of voices in the meadow below her
casement.
"What is she like, mother?" said Job jr.,
who was milking.
(Oh, she looks well enough," Mrs. Tor
rance "carelessly responded. "Little and
dark, with big, shady eyes, and a real Tor
rance mouth. Doesn't talk a great deal,
and dressed shabby, as one might expect."
"Poor thing," said Job, pityingly.
'Well," said Mrs. Torrance, sharply, "I
can't say but what I think she deserves all
she's got, 'Them Aldens always was as
proud as Lucifer."
"You'll keep her, mother, of course?"
tald Job. ,
"I suppose so," said Mra. Torrance ; "I
don't tuppose she got anywhere else to
go."
There was no more delicious dozing for
Emily now. Sbo rose hurriedly, dressed
herself, and came down stairs.
"Aunt Dorcas," tbe laid, as she encount
ered that lady frying bam and eggs over the
kltcnenflre, "what it there In tbls neigh
borhood for a woman to dor'
"Eh T' tald Mrs. Torrance.
"To earn my living, 1 mean I" exclaimed
Emily. "It the district school supplied
with a teacher ?"
Mrs. Torrance nodded at the placed a
slice of frizzing bam on a blue-edged plate,
and arranged tbe eggs in golden spheres
above.
"Ia there a factory hereabouts?'' punned
Emily. v ,
"tied to'be! tihl Mrs. Torrance, "but
thty failed, and it's been shut up for ten
months."
"Do you know any one who wants a girt!"
pursued the city cousin. ,
Mrtf Torrance ret the coffee pot on tbe
table blew tbe horn for Job,- aad then re
sponded to her nleee't query by a counter
question. "Why don't yon stay here?"
"Because," said EmIIly, with tplrlt, "l
want to earn my own living."
"Well, yon can earn It here, can't you? 1

ows and orpbansT
.1 At the end of a ateata if ra, Torraace wat
forced to acknowledge that Emily bad well
earned her 96, a month aad board. The
girl bad about her that wonderful magnetic
power which philotophera dub " executive
ability," and New England housekeepers
call "faculty.'; Sha wat a natural cook
she did things without teeming to take any
trouble at alt.
"I don't understand it," said Mra. Tor
rance. "A little, dark, slim thing, that wat
always brought up-to tit with ber handt
folded."
One, sultry day In July, when Job and
Emily came In from a ttrawberrying, with
crimsoned fingers, laughing faces, and bas
kets heaped high with the fragrant fruit,
Mrt., Torrance started In the solitude ot ber
dairy, where the wat making "cottage
cheese."
"I declare," the cried ; "I wonder I nev
er thought of that before. Oh, dear ob,
(iearl.I never can content to It In tbe living
world."
Job came to her, that tame evening.
"Mother," tald be, "Emily .has promised
to be my wife."
Mrs. Torrance burttlnto tears.
"You're only twenty-six yean old, Job,'
she faltered.
"Just' two yean older thin when my
father married you, mother. Now don't
turn your face away; but tell me plainly,
have yon any fault to find with my choice?"
."No no," confessed Mrt. Torrance.
"Did yea' think I could possibly win a
sKeaterlrlathaamlly Alden V
"Ho I don't suppose yon could," an
swered tbe mother-in-law elect; "but it's
natural, Job, to feel a little jealous, when
you see some one else taking tbe first place
In yourchild't heart."
But when Job brought Emily into receive
ber kitt of greeting, the had so far con.
quered herself as to bid her new daughter
welcome.
"Though l s'poscd, Emily," said the a
little bitterly, "that.'you looked higher than
a farmer once."
"I never looked higher than one of na
ture's nobleman," .said Emily, with a smile
that fairly won the old lady's heart.
That same evening, as they all sat togeth
er in tbe orange twilight, with the scent of
tall, white llllles in the air, Emily suddenly
broke the silence.
"Job," said she, "would you like to be
rich?"
"Well, yes," tald Job, "I'd Hke money
enough to keep my wife in luxury."
"Would you, AUnt Dorcas ?" said Emily,
turning to Mrs. Torrance.
"Of course I should," said the matron,
vigorously plying her knitting needles;
"but I don't ever expect It."
"But you are rich," tald. Emily, with a
little tremor in her voice. "Job is rich
wo are all rich together, with cousin Shan
rach Seely't money."
But,"" cried Mrs. Torrance, "I thought
he left It all to the Baptist widows and or
phans." "Not at all," said Emily. "It's a tccret,
but I may tell yiu now. Half was left to
the Refuge the other $30,000 is mine, to be
paid over to me the day on which I marry a
man who, Ignorant of cousin Suatiracli's
bequest, has loved me loyally and welt. It
was the old man's wblm, and I have respect
ed it,. Oh ! Aunt Dorcas, I came to you in
my loneliness and bewilderment I knew
not where else to go, but I little dreamed
that I was entering tbe kingdom of a noble
heart."
It was true.- Shadrach Seely, eccentric
in life, had been equally occentric in his
death, and when Mr. Mnstybill, the lawyer,
paid over the legacy, he said, chuckling :
"It's all right! It's exactly as my poor
client would have .it. I congratulate you,
Mrs. Jab Torrance !"
And Sirs. Torrance, the elder, bat a high
er opinion of her daughter-in-law's attrac
tions, now that they are in a background of
gold.
THE CR0WNIN80F THE CZAR.
Among the various preparations for the
coronation of the Czar, states a Russian
correspondent of the London Timtt, are the
totlowing:
The Holy Synod, composed of three met
ropolitans, two archbishops and one chief
priest, will tit at Moscow until tbe end of
June; and In the meantime be represented
in St. Petersburg by a delegation only.- On
the plain, which it partly occupied by the
buildings of the recent exposition at Mot
cow, eighty-five circular counters are being
constructed for the distribution oT 000,000
to the Moujlkt, and sixteen -vats to hold
640,000 bottles ot beer for free consumption
by the people attending tbe open theatre
and other placet of popular amusement now
in course of construction. The municipal
ity of Moscow bat voted 20,000 rubles to be
spent on preparations for tbo grand entry
of tho imperial family into the city, 80,000
rubles for Illumination and 100,000 for pop
ular fetes. Enormous quantities of small
presents for the populace bave also been
ordered. For the Illumination of the Krem
lin forty electric globes, to give a brilliancy
equal to 400 candles each, with six vents of
wiro conductors, are being made and elec
tric engineer! from England have arrived

tbe smaller Slavonic States by Russia have

Montenegro and the King of Senia. The

SINE FEARFW. FACTS.
Wataea aaa MaaWafty.FraB tha Mather
or seven carwrea. -
Having read your article In Sunday'
Ctmaercial GautU entitled '-Women and
Maternity," I reel constrained to write a
few lines on the subject.
Chivalry it a beautiful virtue when well
directed towards a proper obJe:t, but in
this particular Instance Its quality It some
what strained. I bave not seen tbe sermon
of Rer. Morgan Dtx, which gave rise to
the criticism In your journal, consequently
I do not know whatne said in his general
and specific charges against society women,
but I do know that as regards the avoid
ance ol the maternal (unction by American
women, ho could not have inveighed too
severely against that evil that pervades alt
classes, from the highest to the lowest.
You say' that the delicacy of the subject
disables them from vindication. Allow me
to contradict you with the assertion that
they have no vindication to make. Fur
thermore, I do not hesitate to declare that,
with the notable' exception of the Jewish
and Catholic women, fully one-half of my
American slstcn resort to mechanical ami
medicinal agents In order to prevent con
ception, and that very many of them, when
tbe aforesaid agents fail of their purpose,
have no scruples In committing prenatal
murder, provided they can do so without
exposure or danger.
injolry to themselves they cannot escape.
for 'sooner or later nature revenges these
Infractions of her Inexorable laws, astboa
tend of' snflerfng women could testify If
they would. Any respectable physician
will indorse this fact. It may be that the
Rev. Morgan Dlx has taken counsel with
such. In live minutes I have counted fif
teen In my Immediate neighborhood who
make no secret of these monstrous prac
tices. Seven ol these women have one
child each, four have two children, and
four are childless. They all attend' divine
services on Sundays, several are prominent
church members Identified 'more or less
with charitable and missionary work. Lit
nfanui! An angry G oil will curse the land
that bears such monsters In its bosom. It
is time, indeed, lor the pulpit and tbe press
ana every honest woman todenounco them.
You speak of limitation by continence and
advise self deulal. Such advice is superflu
ous to tho large majority of women; they
do not need lt. But alat 1 they are not al
ways free agents. Continence to be per
mlssible must be mutual, and the most de
voted husbands aro often arbitrary in this
respect.
Neither is continence allowable from n
Christian standpoint, when its practice pro
ceeds from a distaste for the duties and
cares incidental to maternity. But when
married people find by experience that,
owing to some physical effect or ailment in
one or the other, tbey arc likely to perpet
uate an unheal thy offspring, or when pov
erty is an obstacle, or when the health of
the mother suffers by the long continued
child-bearing, or If increasing and quickly
repeated maternity debars a mother from
giving tho care and attention so necessary
to the physical, intellectual and moral well
being of young children, then is continence
laudablc'and desirable as a means to an cud.
And yet does it sometimes defeat itself, for
it is well known that tho coutincut are the
most fruitful. My home is a happy one. I
am blessed" with health, moderate fortune.

LAST HONORS TO JUDGE HOWE.
Kexosiia, Wis., March 28. The special
train bearing the Milwaukee aud Madison
delegations made the run to this city in an
hour and ten minutes. The town is draped
in mourning, and on all sides there are
evidences of the deepest sorrow for the loss
ol tbe deceased Postmaster General Tim
othy O. Howe. The Chicago special train
bearing several hundred persons, and
among them the Washington delegation
arrived about 7 o'clock. Secretaries Liu
coln, Teller, Chandler, Krelingbuysen and
Acting Postmaster General Uatton, and a
delegation from the postofilce department
composed the Washington party. They
brought a number of magnificent floral
offerings. A light snow storm prevailed,
which gave the draped town a rather pic
turesque appearance, i ho body was at the
residence of Col. J. II. Howe, about two
miles from town. The hour set for the fu
neral services was 3 o'clock, but before that
time the remains were borne by citizens of
Kenosha organized as an escort, to tbe
Lutheran church, where, in front of tbe
alter, they lay in state. The bust of tbe
dead statesman was exposed to view, and
was closely and tearfully scrutinized by the
vost concourse of people, representative
people of this and other States, and the
masses whom in life he loved so well and
served so faithfully. The decorations at tbe
church were simple aud entirely floral in
character. Upon the front ot the altar
platform were arranged a number of beau
tiful designs, fitting mementoes of the sad
occasion.
The services opened with a chant by the
Chicago Quartette under the leadership of
Professor Phelps, of that city. This was
followed by scriptural readings by Rer. II.
M. Sammons, invocation by Rev. Robert
Collyer, of New York, which was followed
by the singing of the hymn, "Abide with
Me." Rev. Sammons reviewed the char
acter of the deceased, with whom ho had
been closely associated for many yean.
"O ! Spirit Freed from Earth." was sung by
the quartette. Rev. Collyer spoke freely
on the hopes of immortality, and the ser
vices were brought to a close wllh a selec
tion by tbe quartette, and benediction.
The congregation then viewed the remains,
after -which tbe cover was placed in posi
tion, and the casket given Into tbe hands oi
the pallbearers, Chief Justice Cole, Gov.
Rusk, Secretary Lincoln, Secretary Teller,
Horace Rublcc, Senator Hill, and taken to
the cepot and placed aboard the funeral
train, which left for Green Bay at about 4
p. m.
Tbo services were exceedingly simple
and appropriate, the relatives of tbe de
ceased having requested that there be no
attempt at display of any kind. There was
neither a uniformed or organized secret so
ciety present.

6UTHRIE AND SUCK.
The 0ft a Letter ef to Farmer ta the Ut
terA Flrst-Clats SUMkri.
Shortly after W. W. Guthrie removal
from the board of penitentiary maaagen
several of bit friends called on Governor
Gtick and wanted to know what, he meant
when hotaIdMr.GuthrIewareuoved "for
cause." The Governor always evaded tbe
question, saying that Mr. Ontario's folks
visited his folks, and that they wet e citizen!
of tbe same town, and neighbors, therefore
he did not wish to Injure him by telling tbe
exact facts. He intimated that while tin.
Guthrio was a very estimable Inly, and the
mother of bright and handsome children,
ber husband wa a great rascal, and l be per
petrator of various outrages, and this corn
lug to the eara of Jlr. Gulbricbe wrote lib)
celebrated open letter, which was refused
by the Topeka Capital, but which baa late
ly been published. The Mirjsville AW of
this week contains it, and it will bo pub
lished Instvcral other papers. ItKcnough
to' say of the letter that It is an open ilefl
ance of the Governor, nud a first-cUas skin
ning, and his excellency will find it neces
sary to at onco put up or shut up. Tbe fol
lowing extract will t-crvp to show its gen
eral tenor:
"Your pretending to act Irom a sense of
duty and self-respect' is regarded as some
thing new to this community, where It Is
known that you have been fined In tbe po
lice court for' an attack upon one of our
best citizens, (truo to your character, be it
said, you ran when tbe assault was resisted
and your flight was tbe only straightfor
ward act of yonr life), when, during the
waryott was notified to leave tbo town as
dangerous to Its peace; where, when a
member of the House I it ISflC, you were one
of tbe active spirits In ilh iding up the 10,-
000 acres of State lands, which, by section
seven or the constitution, was attempted to
be appropriated for the snpport of common
schools, between four railroad companies
organized during that legislative session
for that purpose, aud then demanding and
receiving your share of tbe dlvy, (dato and
description given If desired); where you
organized and was president of a lottery
scheme, and Into which you pretended to
put the Gliek block at tbe value or 930,000,
and shortly after you sold it for $0,000, and
for your operations lu which it itrgeuerally
understood that you were indicted in the
United States district court at Topeka, and
but for the active efforts of your neighbors
to save, you from further disgrace, you
would probably have been an audience to a
chaplain's remarks as a, matter ol 'duty' If
not of 'self-respect.' "
The remainder of.ttic letter is an explan
ation of the difficulty between Glick and
Guthrie, and it certainly Is very candid and
elaborate as todetalls. A quotation Is made
from that part of the Governor's message
referring to tbo penitentiary, wherein ltis
said that "the dirsctors and warden are en
titled to great credit for tho business-like,
economical and profitable manner in which
the affairs of the institution have bicn man
aged." Tbe Governor Is referred to as "an
unlucky accident ;" Hie statement Is made
that the Governor "jcganls the public in
terests as spoils," and that whereas tbe
penitentiary managers only snubbed Mr.
Glick as an individual, tho Kansas Senate
snubbed liitn as Governor. "I wonder,"
adds Mr. Guthrie, "that you did not at
tempt to remove the Senate for cause."
Mr. Guthrie denies that he was removed"
for cause, and attempts to prove,' in bis
usual vigorous way, that Governor Glick
was actuated by malice, egotism, self-Inter
est and Bourbonism. As bis excuse for
publishing the letter, Mr. Guthrie says:
"I have a right to object to being public
ly and wantonly insulted by you, either as
a citizen, politician or Governor. I think
you understand wc.".ttchi$oit Uloht.
THE CZAR'S REFORMS.
Ono hears so much of Nihilism in connec
tion with the Russian government that lit
tle account Is taken nf tbe vital reforms
which the czar is really trying to bring a
bout. When serfdom was abolished the
land was given to the frcednicn tinder a
government mortgage. Tbey were charged
six per cent interest, ami were expected to
free their holding within a certain uumbcr
ot years. Except In a few Instances tbe en
franchised landholders bave not been able
to meet their engagements, and they bave
fallen Into tbe bands of usurious money
lenders, who keep tbctu'in abject poverty.
The Intense hatred of tbe Jews by the Rus
sian peasants is attributable In great part to
tbe fact that so many Hebrews arc among
those who have profited by the misery of
thh Russian laborers. Tbe three great re
forms of the czar arc. first, tbe surrendering
of the motley payment of the government
for tbe use of the land. This went lntoef
fectthe beginning ol the present year; but,
of course. It will Like time for tbe good re
sult of tbls measure to be experienced.
The next reform Is one In which equal dif
ficulty will be experienced In carrying out.
To save the people from the usurers the
government is about to organize banks to
loan money to agriculturists at tbe lowest
possible interest, lt is this well-Intended
measure which has closed the money mark
ets of Europe against Russia. In all human
probability Alexander will fall In carrying
on this well-meant measure. Tho third of
bis reforms is tbe rescinding of tbe poll-tax
which pressed heavily upon the poor, in
its place he substituted a graduated income
tax, rising from five per cent, on tbo lowest
taxable Incomes to fifty per cent- on the
highest ; the object of the autocrat being to
discourage accumulations of wealth Into a
few hanibj, aud distribute it among tbe
poorer population. The greatest commun
ist ol tbe day Is the czar of all the Russia.
This Is why the Nihilists have the un
sympathies of the nobles and very wealthy.
Tbe outcome of alt this will be watched
with great interest by all who. while they
distrust communistic legislation, would not
object to see it tried In any other country
lave their own.
