And you now I'd irn a railing To do jnst wnate'er I was bid I Well, Detroitjust now, is a"booming"l. The streets are all coTered with snow. The sleighs all full of bright faces Are flying about to and fro. And the stores are looting so gorgeous As pretty.as pretty can-be: Oatreacbing temptation to mortals, And becoming a little to me. But my purse has got a contraction ; There is something the matter inside' So that I'm compelled, for the present. In a state of "shut up" to abide: Hut I managed to squander a penny. To entice "Old Santa Clans" here. To put in a few trifles ol "Christmas" For daughter, and little one dear. A lew cards enclosed in some letters For the loved, and the treasured away, To tell that they are remembered, Hakes the meed of my girts for the day. And then for the "Xew Year!" I've hardly In earnest perfected a plan 1 I presnme that some will be calling To entertain "sweet" as I can ! It may be that wonderful stranger; Thatsomebody thinks is "so good!" Well, really, I'd like to behold him; In earnest, now Bobby I wonld I Then sometime, not long after"Xew Year's," With a few of the friends of the old, I'm going to put In an erening With all or the fun It will hold. I'm going to hare cards and refreshments, And lots or bright things will be said. And everyone sure will endeavor To come our a little ahead. Don't you with that you were to be "vltedt" Tbo' I know not a "card" would yon touch Bnt the people are 'real," and are cheery. And you're always attracted by sucli. AVell, I wish that you were again with ns : And the leaves or the past were unrolled, For some of the pleasure 'twas in them Again in our keeping to hold. But it cannot be ever recovered ; The present time only is ours; So away to the winds with the wishes We'll gather tho blooming flowers. Let us weave them in garlands of beauty Then scatter them hither and yon And perhaps theie's a heart that is weary A bnd may fall softly upon. And a love that in closely entwining May lighten our footsteps along And a place where the flowers a re lasting For us in the future, belong. MRS. SARA WOLVERTON. Detroit, Dec. 23d. 1879. For the Journal. Vinton. The gate3 of James have been thrown wide open, the signal to arms, and our people have at last their armor on, against the enemy of in temperance. Is it not possible that some good ma' come out of Nazareth? I do, not think we are quite so bad a people as some of our neighboring villages seem to think. Somehow our fame seems to have gone abroad that we are an abandoned and terribly wicked community, lost to every sense of virtue, morality and com mon decency. This is a mistake and owes its origin, in great part, no doubt, to tbc diversity of opinion in those things proper to constitute morality and good character. , We endeavor to live honestly and virtuously; render unto every man his just dues, pay our honest debts, worship no God, but God Almighty, read good books, educate the igno rant, practice charitv, cultivate social amity, think for ourselves, and allow every man, woman and child the liberty of his opinions, political ly, religiously, and socially, and it is this last in the minds of some that constitutes the head and front of all our offending. There is certainly no village in the State that has a stronger temper ance sentiment, ana can produce any more substantial, earnest, life long temperance men and women than Vinton, the reputed Sodom and Gomorrah of modern times. Nor is this sentiment confined to a few only of our people, but it 'embraces the entire community, save a few exceptions, such only as is incident to even' neighborhood. We hope that our friends hereafter, in their mention of us, will be a little charit able, just, and truthful, and give us at least the benefit of conceding that we are not barbarians. Judge Shaner's court has put on the appearance the last fow days of an over-crowded police, court and more than one Jamie O'Flarity lias paid the penalty for his over devotion to straight whisky. Married on the evening of the 25th, George Q. Rhodes of Jackson connty, to Miss Nora Donnallj', one of the many of Vinton's nice little girls. The ceremony was performed by Esq. Shancr, and he speaks very praisingly of the good things that were on the table, we have enough pretty black and blue eyed girls left to supply several other counties. For further particulars send for descriptive catalogue and photo graph. The following are the officers elect for the ensuing year, Vinton Lodge No. 131, F. & A. M.: R. S. Turner, W. M.; W. H. Turner, S. W.; Alf. Wilcox, J. W.; F. M. Edminston, Trcas,; H. P. Hanna, Sec'y; W. S. Matthews, S. D.; W. F. Butler, J. D.; J. C. Anderson, Tyler. We are glad that "Violet and Daisy" informed us how the Morgan girls spenrl their time, we have been tryingto find that out for a long while. It was about as we antici pated. We never heard of a Morgan girl getting married. Why so much sweetness was allowed to waste on, the desert air was a mystery. Allow us Vinton girls to give you this piece of advice: quit going to school in the daytime, it is far better to go at night; quit reading, books, and for heaven saice don t go to any more of them "Literary and Debat ing Societies." School dooks ana debating socie ties' are as sure destroyers of matri- - monial prospects as shot-guns in the South are of political liberty. Who ever heard of love in a district school, or a sparking match in the dark corner of a debating society. The like was never heard of. You morgan gins must change your ways, learn to flirt a little, and when you have experienced a little of the bliss of this higher lifel my word for it, you won't do any thing else. - NANCY SPARKS. For the Journal. Violet and Daisy. Good, kind, gentle, sweet little Morgan school girls. No flirtations for Violet and Daisy too busy for sucn tnnes to school all ua', read ing good hooks at night; happy con tented, industrious little Morgan Flowers, weaving upon the loud sounding loom of Time; toilin spinning away day and night; look ing down with scorn and contempt upon their flirting sisters of Vinton ii mat, poor old uove, let out upon the deluge, in sergo gown, had not' brought back the olive branch of peace, he certainly had appeare.1 witii violets and daisies in bis bill. O, Violet and Daisy, blooming without thorns upon the rough hills of Morgan, and sweet as country air can make you, pity thy sisters of Vinton If you will, but censure them not, for the eyes of all look down bright with immortal pity upon, you and them. O, sweet Violet and Daisy, you soon will droop and fade and waste all your sweetness along Quadratic Equations and pouring over useiui books, while tho stars, street lamps of heaven, are burning out their midnight oil. The Violet and Daisy are such moaest ana mecK nttie uowers, it is sad to sec them look so severely upon tholr sisters for showering bright petals along the path of some "old bachelor as he journeys to his grave. And ye flowers of Vinton, smile on sweetly as ever many tears have ye shed over the sorrows of Little Nell. Often have ye reached a hand to pilgrim over the slough of despond ; wave your red bandanas high in the air, and wipe tho last tear of sorrow from the face of poor dejected man. Listen not to the idle prat tlings of the Violet and Daisy, whose assumed names discredit those meek and lovely flowers. OLD BACHELOR. For the Journal. Gone Home. "I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you I will come again, and receive. you unto myself, that where I am you unto myself, that where I am there ye may be also. During last wlntr and spring there was in our Sabbath school class several young men who gave prom ise of long life and great usefulness to the church and the world. Among them Frank Alexander. In April last he sought and found employ ment in Kentucky, and for a time we Io3t sight of him. A few days ago there came a note of warn ing a messenger saying, " rank is sick." Two days of suspense to the fond mother and loving sisters and an other messenger came saying; "Frank is dead." Ihe body was brought home, and upon the coffin lid there was a cross and a wreath of lovely white flowers, artistically arranged by the ladies of Catlettsburg, Ky. The funeral sermon was1 preached by Rev. Hathaway, in the M. E. Church at Chambersburg. Tho con gregation that assembled to pay the last tribute of respect to his memory was large and sympathetic Neigh bors and friends wept with those who' were called to weep. But while our own eyes were filled with tears our mind was filled with pleasant memo ries. Sanctuary scenes loomed up before us. We remembered our re vival meetings last winter our altar services, where Frank knelt and gave himself to God. We remembered his clear testimony in regard to the power of Christ to save. We remem bered how his eyes sparkled and and how radient his countenance and how triumphant and joyous the voice that joined with us in singing; am so glad that our Father in Heaven Tells of hia lovo in the hook he has. fiven. Wonderful thinga in thepiiile I see, This is the dearest that Jesus loves . ine." When the Death Angel called for Frank he was not yet 20 years old, but he was ready for the summons. He said to his brother Charlie, "I ra willing to go." O, sorrowing friends dry up your tears. David said when his child was taken from .him. "I shall go to him but he shall riot re turn tn fflP." T?r.mlr TvIM nnh fiornln sit by the family firesldo, n.or iu'tho Sabbath . school class; no. more-will we see his smiling face in our social circle, but if we live right, love the same Jesus that Frank loved, the time will come by adcVby, when we will see him again, and join with him in singing the song'of the re deemed: "Yet a little while we linger, Ere we reach our Journev's end. Yet a little while to labor, .re the evening shades descend." May we, too, be ready. M. MARSHALL.
