" TO A BEREAVED MOTHER Dark, dark indeed, waa all around, No light upon the mother ahone; . Her laat rote waa withered, plucked, . And bitter waa her ailent moan. - Ilor husband tried in vian to soothe . , Hia tender pleadings were not heard ; Day after day still darker grew. She could not feel one kindly word. Her mountain heme waa veil'd, in shade No. no 1 too aoft a word was tnat; Shade meana aomethtng pleasant, soothing Her home in midnight darkness sat ! On little bud was left te smile, The image of the sainted dead; The mother's only child was spared, And ahe waa taken in ita stead. The grandmother wept and sighed ' The tender babe oould not condole; In that beautiful mountain home. Naught was left now to eonsole. Far down beneath the mountain's brow, . Flowed a soft meandering rill; And olose beaide that mountain stream. Rose one lone mound, quiet and still. Grand spire above the lonely dead. Those giant mountains grimly stood; Theaighing mother often weeps. And looks out on the dark, dense wood But while the wretched mother weapa, . The blooming bud her time employs; And rippling watera aadly peal Requiems to departed joys. Mother, look up above the clouds Your jewel slumbers aw eetiy now ; Onr Father to his bosom olaspa . His loving lambs who meekly bow. Why weep and mourn when Allie blooms? The morning light has dawnel at last; Your daughter smiles triumphantly , , Her sorrowa are forever paat I The rose ia dead, the bud is left. And sweeter may be the flower; Blooming around your silver locks. And lighting your lonely bower. 'Tis yours, the tender olive plant. So fondly to your bosom press d; Given to crown your bright old age, . With love, content andAranquil rest. MRS. M. E. R. Hkhfhis, September 8, 1974. Bnlehnr'a Meat In Euvlsnd. An intereatine lielit is thrown on the mysteries of the slaughter house, says the Pall Mall Gazette, bv a memorial just presented by Dr. Veld, Medical Olhcer ot Health lor Sunderland, to the Health Committee of the town, acainst tire "blowing and stuffing of meat." The practice of "blowing" is described as follows: "A tube or pipe is thrust under the skin of the meat, and the butcher or dresser then blows the foul air from his own lungs into the cellular tissue of the meat, the. effect being that a deceptive appearance of plumpness or fatness is given to the meat, and in many cases it becomes tainted with the smell of rum, tobacco, etc." This is pleasant for meat consumers, and where ignorance is bliss it is perhaps a folly to be wise, and now that attention has been called to the "blowing" practice, it might perhaps be as well for butchers so far to meet the wishes of the fastidious as to use a pair of bellows for tbe purpose of giving graceful embonpoint to tbe car casses they kill. Even for their own sake they will act prudently by discon tinuing the use ot tbeir lungs m the process. Dr. Yield also protests against the practice of artificially stuffing the loins or other parts of the animal with at, so as to give a false appearance of corpulence. As a remedy, he suggests the imposition of a penalty for every such offense of 20s for the first, and 40s for each subsequent conviction. 11 is suggestions were adopted nnanimouply by the Health Committee at Sunderland, and it is to be hoped that not only in that town, but ebewhere, artificial fat ness will at least be produced by less disegreeable means than those men tioned by Dr. Yeld. ' Ballooning experiments have been made recently at the Woolwich arsenal, England. On one occasion after the balloon had ascended a thousand feet the aeronauts tried a new steering appa- retus, but it failed to affect the course of the balloon, although it enabled the aero nauts to make it revolve to the right or left. MEMPHIS, TENN,: THURSDAY LOST OX PIKES' PEAK. From the Denver Rocky Mountain News. Mr. Morris, who, with his invalid wife, has been stopping at Manitnu for a lew days, mounted a horse Tuesday, and started alone to tbe peak, expecting to return that evening. Tbe ascent was made without accident, and he reached the tiptop at noon and telegraphed his wife an " alt well." After taking in the sights, which, from common report, are as marvelous as human eye ever gazed upon, and chatting awhile with the ob servers for the signal service, Mr. Morris started to descend where his horse was hitched, near the timber line. Suddenly a huge black cioud, which a few minutes before had been tumbling about to the westward, settled down around the peak, and the snow commenced to fall. Mor ris, fearing to stop lest be should be be lated and prevented from reaching Man iton that evening, and thinking he could soon get below the range of the storm, quickened his footsteps down tbe mountain. But the full of snow in creased, and the wind, strong at first, became a tempest, with a keen touch of wint'.T in it. Morris, blinded by the snow, which beat against him in perfect clouds, nearly taking bis breath, took the wrong trail, the one leading to the brink of the crater, a chasm second oiily to the Yosemito. Reaching a pile of boulders, where the trail seemed to be lost, he commenced to clamber over them, when he slipped and rolled and dropped twen ty five feet, striking on a shelving rock three feet wide and eight feet long. His head wns gashed in two places, his body covered with bruises, and the blood poured Ircely from bis wounds. He was stunned by tbe fall but recovering hia consciousness, and fearing to move, he bunched himself against the rock at his back and awaited the abatement of the storm. When the wiud lowered and the snow ceased falling and the sun shone again, Morris saw at a glarice tbe awful ness of his situation. Above him and on both sides of him the rocks Beemed almost perpendicular, just over the shelf UDon which be lay was a chasm two thou sand feet deep, the sight of which appall ed his senses, and be hung to the rocks with a sickening dread, that any human, would. Mr. Morris, however, is a man of calm judgment, and as aoon as he recovered from tbe first shock be decided to make the best of the situation, come what would. He divided hia luncheon, con sisting of sandwiches, and cake, into nine parts, calculating to eat one part every day, and so prolong life at least nine days. He saw no one on the mountain that afternoon. That night a terrific wind and hail storm occurred. Tbe wind chilled bim to tbe marrow, and his suffering was intense. After tbe storm the hail stones were fonr inches deep against his back. Taking frorc hia pocket a bottle, from which the whisky had been spilled in the fall, he filled it with hail, thus securing a.srrall quantity of water. On Friday, about noon, be saw two men climbing a trail, and called to them with all his strength, but, after listening a moment, they passed on, and disappeared behind a ledge of rocks. Those were the only persons he .saw that day. That night the clouds poured out a torrent of rain. The rocks at his back afforded him no shelter, and he was wet to the skin and very cold besides. He feared he might become delirious and jump off into that awful gorge. So, all through Friday night be rubbed bis legs and swung Lis arms about his head. He knew that to fall asleep was death. Saturday morning about 8 o'clock three men appeared on a point pf rocks a short distance from where Morris was sitting. One of tbe men was Dick Tern pieman, a famous Pike's Peak guide, and the others were Spencer Harris aud Reuben Healey, residents of Munitou, and well acquainted with mountain trail. Dick Templeman, leader of the searching party, had left Manitou in the conviction that Morris would be found, if found at all, somewhere about the brink of tbe crater, as it is called. When Morris saw them he called to them. They heard him and answered. But his voice, instead (S coming Btraiglit to them, split into a thousand echoes, and they were at a loss to locate him. Finally, after a fruitless search with the eyes, Templeman halloed to Morris to wave his handkerchief, and to keep it in motion, and in this way his exact where abouts was detected. Morris asked if they had a rope, and being aaswered that they had not, he despairingly threw up his hands, and, in a low voice, which was but faintly conveyed to them in echoes, said: " You can't save me with out a rope." But they rescued him, nevertheless, and withoet a rope, though only by the hardest work. ' The men, Templeman in the lead, worked their way down almost to Morris, and, by the aid of his long linen coat, which he twisted and fastened under his arms, they succeeded in lifting and dragging him over tbe precipice. They helped along to the trail, and tied him to the back of a horse, andV started down the mountain. Jour times on the way down they lifted him off and let bim sleep awhile. When brought to the Mauitou Uotel, alive and as well as could be expected, there was great com motion among the people, for nobody dreamed that be could survive two such nights as Thursday and Friday. Morris has been confined to his bed since Satur day, but is doing nicely, and is expected soon in this city, where he is well and favorably known. It is a romantic sight, on a clear noonlight evening, to peep into the ittle "pagodas" that line the bluff at Long Branch and see the enamored Amanda picking sea weed out-of her t itz Percy s hair.

I IWhcn Macready, the actor, visited this country, he found many things to puzzle and perplex him, for be was as precise and angular as Gewgiuus. The idioms and the eccentricities of the Y'ankees were beyond his comprehension. At one of our theaters, where he was per forming an engagement, he had occasion to find fault with the supporting, actors, who were a particularly free-and easy set. Going'to the manager one day, he said: " Mr. Manager, you have deceived me, sir." " Bless me!" cried the manager in sur prise; " how so?" " About your actors, sir. Did you not tell me that Mr. A. was on a high?" ' " Yes." "And that Mr. S. had a touch of the tangle-foot ?" " Yes." "And that Mr. P. had a brick ia his hat?" " Aye, that was what I said." "And in explanation of the conduct of Mr. 3 you told me he had snakes in his boots?" " Certainly I did." " Well, sir," anuounccd the great trage dian in his most stern and indignant manner, "I find, upon critical examina tion, that these men are all drunk, sir. Aye, all drunk!" ... This is what Lucy Stone says about Mrs Tilton in the last issue of the Wo man's Journal: " I still hold her a good, true woman, unspeakably sinned against and wronged, and I do most cordially give her my hand with all a woman's sympathy, and cry: (Jourage, Mrs. Tilton! Beyond this desolating flood and this furnace seven times heated, are happier days for you.' " SPECIAL NOTICE. SCHINCX'S Ptll.llONIO 8TRUP, TOR THK ClTRg OF COXHUaPTIUH, COUUHS AXO COLBS.
