There are but few words in our lan
guage that awaken our sympathies,
arouse our feelings, and call forth the
finer sensibilities of our nature like the
word home. The Esquimau in his snow
house, the African in his hut beneath the
burning sun, the Indian in his wigwam
amidst the forest, the dweller on the
mountain-top, the rich man in his palace,
the intelligent or ignorant, the lowliest
of ail, have implanted in their breast a
love of home. That one word brings up
recollections that nothing can obliterate.
It matters not what station in life a per
son mxy be called out to till, he will
ever think of home. Who is there that
can ever forget the time when father or
mother would take us at early morn and
at close of day and teach us te lisp a
prayer to heaven ? Who forgets a good
night kiss when a fond parent would take
us on the knee and instil into our young
minds the principles of virtue and re
ligion, and invoking a blessing on our
head, hush us tea sweet repose ? And
when prostrated with sickness, with
what care we would be watched over,
how carefully they would smooth our
fevered brow, and soothe our troubled
spirit, and supply our every want! How
many hours of watchful care till we were
once more restored to health, and with
what joy they would then pour upon us
their endearing caresses ! Who but calls
to mind, when with those they hold most
dear, they climbed their native lulls or
roamed the smiling valley, or wandered
by the babbling brook, or standing on
the beach watching the * idal wave as it
dashed the silvery spray at our feet! —
And then our school days, with our in
nocent games upon the school house
green ! Ah ! and of how many of our
dear school-mates who have gone before
us to that bourne from which no traveler
returns, and of the many friendships
then formed that have lasted through
life ! How few of us then thought of
the trials and afflictions we would have
to encounter, and of the many heart
aches we would feel in being absent from
home! How well we remember the
pleasant evenings we spent with the old
folks at home, or walking the green fields
with her who has been our partner thro’
the joys and sorrows of life ? and how
wc led her to the altar of God, and be
fore the minister of heaven pledged our
mutual vows; and then when heaven
blessed our married life with our little
offspring, how we loved, fondled and
cherished it, and taught its infant lips
to praise its God !
The recollections of home will cling to
us through life, it matters not what sta
tion in life we may fill. Wo may climb
to the highest pinnacle of fame or sink
to the lowest depths of misery and deg
radation, the thoughts of home will still
cling to us.
Let me here recite an instance of how
thoughts of home will cling to us in
deepest poverty. It is abridged from
the Rochester Democrat: A poor man
confined in the cell of a police station,
was heard playing on a month organ,
and playing, as it was said of a great
artist, with his whole soul in the work.
The notes were burdened with melan
choly. They struck the heavy stone
walls and rolled along the cold flag stones
in a dreary sort of way—floating in and
out of the dark cells and through the
prison halls, they seemed to gather
mournfulnessand melancholy from every
bar of iron and piece of stone they
touched. There was a heart-opening
plaiutiveness in his tones that could not
be denied. Ho was playing “Home,
Sweet Home.” He seemed to feel it, to
send out every note from some sacred
recess of his heart; to have studied and
repeated every sentiment of the grand
old creation until it became part and
parcel of his nature. He had lived away
out West, beyond the Mississippi. He
left his father’s house and went down
the Father of Waters and then out on
the broad ocean. Years had gone since
then. He had traversed the streets of
Jerusalem, and walked over the ground
that Christ had trod; had heard the
voices of the Muezzin in Constantinople,
and seen the follower of the Prophet
kneel in St. Sophia ; had seen the won
ders of the East, and felt the cold winds
of the North ; all had taught him the
truth of Paine’s words : “There is no
place like Home.” He wanted to go
back there just once more. There was
a father and mother, brother and sisters
when he left. He did not know whether
they were there now or not. He was
penniless and friendless. Sickness had
laid her hand upon him. He would go
back, though. The lakes would soon
open, or he could walk it if it was neces
sary. Ho turned and laid down on the
hard iron bed, and again the music float
ed with its sad, sad mourufulness.—
Hundreds of miles from home, penniless,
friendless and forlorn, toiling towards
that western home. The piece he played
so often Beamed to be written on his
The beautiful idea of home, the abode
of earthly bliss, the nursery of virtue,
the fountain of love ! Here patriotism
finds its sanctuary, its true abode, its
strong fortress. The comfort, the beau
ty, the attractiveness of the home, its
privacy and all its sanctities are to be
studied and cherished, as embracing all
of human good—whether public or pri
vate. The green yard, the neat cottage,
the magnificent elm—the growth cf cen
turies, the beautiful evergreens, the
creeping vine, the blushing flowers, the
bright and promising children.
The man Lambert, who hung himself
to a tree seme time lat t August, in the
t iv. n of Dane, Dane connty, and whoso
remains were found on Friday last, was
driven to self destruction through re
morse, it is thought. It is reported that
about twelve years ago, when in Ger
many, Lambert was poaching. The
gam a keeper put a charge of shot into
L's body, when L. turned and shot the
game keeper dead. The prison held
Lambert for ten years. Upon his release
he came to this country. The story was
told on him, and for some time before
be took his life he appeared very melon-'
“I have no time to read,” is the com
plaint, and especially of women, whose
occupations are such as to prevent con
tin* v book perusal. They seem to
th ihu. t because they cannot devote
as much attention to books as they are
compelled to devote to their avocations,
that they cannot read anything. It isn’t
the books we finish at a sitting which
always do us the most good. Those we
devour in the odd moments, half a dozen
at a time, often give us more satisfaction
and are more thoroughly digested than
those we make a particular effort to read.
The men who have made a mark in the
world have generally been the men who
have in boyhood formed the habit of
reading at every available moment,
whether for five minutes or five hours.
It is the habit of reading, rather than
the time at our command, that helps us
on the road to learning. Many of the
most cultivated persons, whoso names
have been famous as students, have giv
en only two or three hours a day to their
books. If we make use of spare minutes
in the midst of our work, and read a
little, if but a page or paragraph, we
shall find our brains quickened and our
toil lightened by just so much increased
satisfaction as the book gives us. Noth
ing helps along the monotonous daily
round so much as fresh and striking
thoughts, to be considered while our
hands are busy. Anew idea from anew
volume is like oil which reduces the
friction of the machinery of life. What
we remember from brief glimpses into
books, often serves as a stimulus to ac
tion, and becomes one of the most prec
ious deposits in the treasury of our re
collection. All knowledge is made up
of small parts, which would seem insig
nificant of themselves, but which, taken
together, are valuable weapons for the
mind and substantial armor for the soul.
“Head anything continuously,” says Dr.
Johnson, “and you will be learned.”
The odd minutes which we are inclined
to waste, if carefully availed of, will in
the long run make golden hours and
golden days that we shall ever be thank
ful for.
The Oyster. —Even the statistics of
oysters are not without interest. They
would seem to be the most fecund of the
denizens of the sea; and for this ■ fact,
surely, we should be fervidly grateful.
Somebody has been lately studying the
bivalve, and tells us, after careful ob
servation, that “if every oyster in the
sea were to spat every year, the sea would
soon be filled up with oysters!” In the
interests of commerce and the other fish
es, we would fain hope that the tasty
tribe will not wax quite to this extent;
though if they would make a bridge for
us from America to Europe, the legions
of the sea sick would have one more rea
son to bless the oyster’s existance.
We may take it for granted that every
oyster in the sea does not “spat” once a
year. It is, however, boldly asserted by
a no less scientific authority than Mr.
Frank Buckland that a single oyster may
contain, at one time, over 800,000 em
byro oysters. Mr. Bucklaud, moreover
avers that he has had in his possession
“as many molluscous protoplasms as
would have grown in time into 123,000,-
000 marketable oysters.” Thus there is
no prospect whatever of a famine in this
delightful food.. Every year the supply
will become greater, and already their
cheapness puts oysters within the reach
of the pooer classes; and as they bring
health and enjoyment at the same time,
this fact is one which we may well re
joice at.— Applsfon’s Journal.
A Punctuation Puzzle.— The follow
ing article forcibly illustrates the neces
sity of punctuation. It can be read in
two waysf making it a very bad or good
man. The result depending upon the
manner in which it is punctuated. It is
well worth the study of teachers and

A citizen of Sedalia passing along N.
H. Gentry's farm, saw a negro busily
engaged in swinging a large fan over the
prostrate form of a sow. He at once
supposed that the negro was crazy and
that he imagined that he was fanning
his sweetheart, but the African soon ex
plained matters. The sow was named
the Duchess, a fine-blooded animal,
purchased by Mr. Gentry, with two oth
ers, the three coding him the sum of
SI,BOO. She has sis pigs, and a negro
man is constantly watching that the mo
ther may not lay down on the little fel
lows and kill them. The sow weighs
between six and seven hundred pounds,
and during the warm weather must re
ceive the undivided attention of a waiter
whose.duties are to sprinkle water on
her and fan her. This will not amaze
the reader, when he considers that the
valne of the sow and her pigs is over
31,000. F °
According *o Democratic ethics it is
right and sweet and beautiful for Demo
crats to claim doubtful States for Tilden
on meager and partisan testimony, but
when Republicans claim them for Hares
on much better evidence it is iufamous
fraud, Radical rascality, etc. Demo
crats are close reasoners.
Be watchful of the stock. The frost
has come and destroyed herbage. If
the same pastures only are now used
that the stock have been runing on all
summer and no extra allowance is given
them, they will soon begin to fail for
the pastures are failing. It is wise to
go into winter quarters fat and healthy.
It is much eaiser to retain flesh, and
then loose it. Hold on to all you have
got and add more to it. If you only
keep what you have, then yom* winter
feed brings you nothing; but if you get
pay for what you feed, in the improving
condition of your stock—and here is
where the provident farmer shows his
wisdom. He gets pay for all he feeds.
He is careful to loose no flesh, or fat
from his stock in the winter, but to keep
them improving, and thus pay for all his
feed. He provides warm shelter, for he
knows the more stock are exposed, the
more food they require.
The prospects for the stock grower are
improving. We have learned how to
ship safely and profitably, fresh meat to
Europe. We are making constantly
large shipments, and the meat reaches
there in prime order. This will have
a great effect upon our meat-producing
interests. It will not be long before we
will ship from New Orleans as well as
New York. There will be an outlet at
the north and south for our surplus
meats. Every foot of our vast prairies
north and south can be profitably used
for grazing purposes. There is light
ahead for the stock grower. Now let
him improve his stock—get short horn
males as soon as possible, that he may
have early maturity, great size, and easy
fattening qualities; and then he will be
on the sure pathway to prosperity.—

Sleep and Dbeamingl —Do we ever
sleep without dreaming ? The question
has been discussed both by ancients and
moderns. Hippocrates, Plato, Leibnitz,
Descartes, Cabanis, and other eminent
physicians and philosophers take the
affirmative. They hold, substantially,
that it is the body which sleeps, the soul
that dreams ; that the former needs rest
and the latter does not ; that, while
physically fettered, the soul’s natural
expression is in dreaming. The soul be
ing immortal, incapable, independent of
stay or stop, must necessarily and per
petually dream. Because we do not
remember our dreams is no proof that
we do not have them. Persons on wak
ing will feel confident that they have not
dreamed, and yet, during the day, some
outward happening or passing thought
will, by force of association, recall the
dreams they had entirely forgotten. It
is even questionable if dreams ever go
entirely out of memory. They may not
be recollected for a week, a month, or a
year, but they are some time, though in
so vague and shadowy a manner as to
lose their identity. —Montreal Gazette.
Don t Scake Mech.— Having plenty
of apples and pears, but having no dog,
a resident of Green Street stuffed an old
suit of clothes and stood the effigy up in
his back-yard to scare the wicked boys
away. The plan seemed perfection for
a while, but yesterday morning the
“man” was discovered suspended to the
limb of a tree by a rope tied to his heels.
The coat-tails were cut off, the mouth
filled with weeds, and the eyes and ears
with mud, and the following note pinned
to the body : “This ’ere feller has got
the kolic offul bad. ” The big bell pears
and the rosy red apples had been thin
ned out until it looked like an off’ year
for crops, and the boys were far away.—

Coloring Human Hair by Eajing
Eggs. —The much vexed question, how
to get gold hair, is solved at last. While
the Germans shrink from being held a
fair-haired nation, who knows, but the
sufferers, what other nations have gone
through to win the hair despised by
Prussia ? Ladies have borne unheard
of torments in pursuit of this fictitious
gold. One who had to be turned round
in the sun for hours during the process,
bore with stoic fortitude the terrible
headaches involved each week, nor ever
complained of what she had to pay,
though, after all, she was scarcely even
electro-plated. Some run other risks,
in robbing Teuton corpses of their long
fair locks; and all is ineffectual while
eyes and skin remains to give the lie
to hair. Now, no more dyes, migraines
or wigs will be neceessary. Everybody
may sport the “glad gold hair”—nay,
blue eyes, too, and snowy skin. All
you have to do is to go and live on an
island and eat penguins’ eggs—and the
more you eat the fairer you will get.
None need despair, for hair too dark to
change to gold turns red, and red hair,
being more the rage than flaxen, tant
mieux. The isle in question is one of
the Crozet group, on which survivors of
the unfortunate Strathmore were wreck
ed last year, and only rescued after six
months’ durance vile. They had little
but penguins’ eggs (and doubtless the
eggs without the island would be of no
avail), but the slight inconvenience of a
sameness in food would bo readily en
countered by the votaries of fashion. A
survivor writes: “The eggs did every
one a great deal of good. * * * A
most remarkable thing was that every
one had fair skins twd light hair, dark
faces and hair being quite chaugedblack
hair turning brown or red, and people
quite flaxen.” If some enterprising En
glishman does not immediately set up a
hotel on this enchanted spot, we shall
never give John Bull credit for knowing
how to make his fortune.
Shadowing Wives. — Some recent re
velations of the operations of private de
tectives have brought to light in New
York the curious but suggestive fact
that a considerable number of this class
of policeman are steadily and profitably
employed in watching, or “shadowing,”
as it is technically called, wives and hus
bands who arc suspected of infidelity
and sometimes fast young men; not 31-
ten indiscreet daughters are also follow
ed and wached by the private detectives.
The first class are, however, the principal
objects of attention, and it is said that
many a man and many a woman has
been astonished by hearing or seeing a
detailed report of their clandestine visits
to suspicious houses, the length of their
stay, and their movements subsequently
all in detail. Divorce suits are often
brought upon sworn statements of de
tectives, and upon the testimony ob.
tained by them. A good story is rela
ted of Jim Fisk, Jr., who for many
years had a private detective watching
him at his own request for the purpose
of preventingothers from doing the same
thing. The Frie magnate used to test
the faithfulness of his detective by ask
ing him where he (Fisk) was at a certain
hour, and, if the answers were correct,
he would acknowledge it. He stopped
the work about three months before he
was killed, and if he had continued the
service he might have been alive now,
for if his guardian had seen Stokes there
he would have suspected his object and
placed Fisk on his guard.
A Forgetful Man. —His wife sent
him uptown for “sumthin’or ruther”
early in the evening. On the way he
met a friend, and they spent a half hour
in an animated dispute, as to whether
Hayes or Tildcn had the best chances
for an election, and when he left
his friend at the corner of Fourth and
Vine streets, he had entirely forgotten
what Maria had sent him after. It was
in vain that he tried to tbink up his for
gotten errand. For three long weary
hours he wandered around from saloon
to saloon, trying to stimulate his unre
liable brain and prick up his memory.
’Twas no use. The more he stimulated
the more he didn’t remember. He ha
ted to go home and acknowledged as
much to his wife, and so he just drop
ped in on his friends to gather a little
sympathy. After he had managed to
scrape considerable of the article togeth
er, and just as the clock on St. Xavier
Church was chiming the midnight hour
the telegraph editor opened a dispatch
and remarked that the Associated Press
announced the death of Dr. , the fa
mous physician of . “By the jum
ping Juniper Jubiter, I remember now,”
said the visitor, rising slowly from his
seat and turning as pale as a cholera pa
tient, “1 remember now. My wife had
the cramp colic and sent me to bring the
doctor! D—n politics ! I wonder if
she’s alive yet ?” And he shot out of
the door after that doctor without wait
ing to hear what was the outlook in
New York. —Cincinnati Enquirer.
Wearing Flannel.— The majority of
people are not aware of the beneficial ef
fects of wearing flannel next to the body
both in cold and warm weather.
Flannel is not so uncomfortable in warm
weather as prejudiced people believe.
Frequent colds and constant hacking
coughs have left me since adopting flan
nel garments. There is jio need of great
bulk about the waist which condemns
the wearing of flannel with those who
prefer wasp waists, always fastening at
the bj.ck There are scarcely any of
the sudden changes of weather felt by
those who wear flannel garments, and
mothers especially should endeavor to
secure flannels for their little people in
preference to ail those showy outside |
trimmings which fashion commends.

M ISON’ft HAMLIN ORGANS are unanimously as
signed •‘Tlie First Itank in the several
requisites” of such instruments, and are the
only ones assigned this rank. Sec Judges 1 Reports.
This result was not unexpected, for these organs have
uniformly taken highest awards in suen competi
tions, there being less than six exceptions in hundreds
of comparisons. They were awarded first medals and
highestfbonors at Paris 1867, Vienna 1873, Santiago
1815, Philadelphia 1876; having thus been awarded
highest honors a f every World's Exhibition at which
they have competed, and being the only American
organs which ever .obtained any award in Europe.

This article has been extensively prescribed by
the Medical Profession of Chicago and vicinity dur
ing the past five years, with the most gratifying re
sults. It is prepared from Malted Barley, in accor
dance with the process of the celebrated chemist,
Baron Liebig, of Germany; by means of improved
methods and apparatus to a high state of perfection.
It contains, in a permanent concentrated shape, all
the vitalized phosphates of the grain, together with
its nitrogenous and amylaceous principles; the lat
ter are in a soluble condition, and hence, in a state
in which it may be readily assimilated in the system
As a nutritive tonic,
BorcM’s Extract of M
ranks as one of the best of remedies. In pulmonary
complaints it is constantly used, combining with its
general tonic properties the qualities of an expect
orant, tlie extract, is successfully given in various
forms of Bronchial Irritation. It is also employed
with marked advantage, as a remedy for Nervous
Exhaustion, In all kinds* of disease, as in Typhoid
Fever, in which nutrition has been long and serious
ly im] aired, no article is better adapted to the re
quirements of the system, than EKBT'S EX

especial value, as it increases the flow and improves
the milk. 17feb76

Waters’new Scale Pianos have peculiar merits.—

The tone of the Waters’ Piano is rich, mellow and
sonorous. They possess great volume of sound and
the continuation of sound or singing power is one of
their most marked features. —v York Times.
