Till the heart which at even1 was weary and old Can rise in tba morning gay, Sweet wife. To Ita work in the morning gay. Miscellaneous. Walking Erectly. It not only adds to manliness of ap pearance, but develops the chest and promotes the general health in a high degree, because the lungs being reliev ed of the pressure made by having the head downward and bending the chest in, admit the air freely and fully down to the very bottom of the lungs. If an effort of the mind is made to throw the shoulders back, a feeling of tiredness and awkwardness is soon ex perienced, or it is forgotten. The use t f braces to hold up the body is neces- sirily pernicious; for there can be no brace that does not press upon some p irt of the body, more than is natural, hence can not fail to injuriously im pede the circulation of that part. But, were there none of these objections, the brace would soon adapt itself to the bodily position, like a hat or shoe, or new garment, and would cease to become a brace. j To maintain an erect position, or re cover it when lost, in a manner which is at once natural, easy and efficient, it is only necessary to walk habitually with the eyes fixed on an object ahead, a little h'ghe: than your own, the eave of a house, the top of a man's hat, or- simply keep your chin a very little above a horizontal line. Or, it will an swer to walk with your hands behind you; if either of these things is done, the mcessary, easy and legitimate ef fect is to rt lieve the chest from pres sure, the air gets in more easily, devel- opes It more fully, and permeates the lungs more extensively, causing a more perfect purification of the blood, im parting higher health, more color to the cheek and compelling a throwing out of the toes. To derive the highest benefit from walking, hold up the head, keep the mouth closed, and move briskly. Hall's Journal of Health. A Warning to those who Use Ink. A very peculiar case of sickness has recently been developed in obo of the members of a family residing In West End a little girl aged about four teen years. The child is a member of the First Intermediate School, and has been in the habit of cleaning her pen by sucking the ink from it, and then swallowing the saliva thus poisoned. And it has not been an unfrequent thing for her to take a bottle of ink and drink from it as she would drink water. Every remonstrance of teach ers and parents was disregarded, 'till now the poisonous fluid has permeated her whole system and created a dis ease which, if it does not finally baffle the best efforts of medical men in this city, will require a long siege ot sick ness and suffering. The habit of cleaning pens with the mouth is not an uncommon one, and though the saliva may be immediately spit out, yet there remains enough ink in it, if the practice is continued, to gradually and surely pass over the sys tem, and being po:sonous, must do harm. A word to the wise should be sufficient. Cin. Chronicle. A correspondent writes: "I engaged chaise at Gal way city to conduct me some few miles into the country, and had not proceeded rar wnen n punea nn t the foot of a hill, and the driver coming to the door, opened it. "What are you at, man ? This is n t wnere i ordered you to stop." "Whisht, your honor, whisht!" said the driver in an under-tone, "I am only desaving the heaflt. I '11 jist bang the door he '11 think yer out, an' then he '11 cut up the hill like tne very ami see 11 ne don't." - - am A citizen of Minnesota, named Brown, has attained tne climax ot im pudent infidelity. He not only left . ... . , , ia- his wife to live wun anomer, out, ne stole his wife's clothes for the other to wear. A Blessed Day. What a blessed day is Sunday to a man who necessarily catches tHt brief glimpses of home during the toilinp; week ; who is off in the morn ing while the little eyes are closed in slumber, nor back at night until they are sealed in sleep. What would he know of the very children for whom he toils, were it not for the blessed, breathing respite of Sunday? What honest workingman'3 child will ever forget this day, when clean and neat, it is his privilege to climb papa's knee and hang about his neck, and tell him all the news which goes to make np his 111 tie narrow world. Narrow, did we say ? We recall the word, for it widens out into the boundless ocean of eternity. Sunday for the working man's children ! So he would have it a day hallowed by sweet, pure home influences; when the little band, quite complete, shall rest from labor, and love shall write it down the blessed day of all the seven. The White House Untenable. The White House building is so completely the property and prome nade of the million that Mrs. Grant alleges that she has no- bed-room for her sisters who come to visit her. The whole of the lower floor, excepting a small dining room, and one half the second story of the White House, are thrown open to the public. It is like living in the loft of one end of a mar ket house. Though there are some fine mirrors, carpets, &cin this building, the house itself is cracked, leaky, old, musty, and going straight to decay, despite the paint and gilt in which these rottennesses . are disguised. I went into the little crib called the "office'of General Badeau" some time ago; and there was a crack from top to bottom of his door, through which the eye could look plainly, as through a window pane. In point of comfort the President's wife finds her former residence thrice as habitable as this great public palace- And how is one to keep the crowd out? G. W. T. in Chicago Tribune. Revenue Stamps. Commissioner Delano has decided, with regard to affixing and canceling internal reve nue stamps, that in all cases where an adhesive stamp shall hereafter be used, except as may be otherwise provided, the person making and delivering or giving the instrument, matter, or thing to be taxed, shall affix the stamp; that the entire surface of each stamp shall be exposed to view; and that he shall cancel the same by wri ting with ink upon each stamp, or by such mechanical means as the Com missioner may hereafter require, in or der that such canceled stamp can not be again used. The cancellation of stamps for spirits and tobacco will re main as heretofore. The Commission. er calls the attention of officers to the provision in the act imposing a fine and punishment for using adhesive stamps which have already been used Cure for Piles. Mr. N. Pruden, of Jersey, Licking county, Ohio sends us thefjilowi g recipe for the cure of the piles, which he desires us to publish for the bene fit of the afflicted. O. S. Journal. Take half a pound of new made butter, free from salt, one pint of the juice of the Poke-root, which some call Garget, and one common table spoonful of gunpowder; put them to gether and simmer the compound over a slow fire until the water is all out. Then, as it is cooling, stir it a little at intervals, to keep the powder f.om sinking. Directions. Anoint ha parts affec ted twice a day for a few days. This has cured ninety-nine out of a hundred of all kinds of piles. If the disease is not at the surface a swab must be made to reach it if possible. This is tXcn neces-iary with bleeding piles. The month of May is the best time to make the salve, as the root is then the most Juicy, and can be easily gra ted and strained; but if made in the winter the root can be bc-led, and use the tea according to the strength. Mr. Pruden adds: "This has been a cure in New Jersey for more than fif ty years, and never known to fail of a cure but twice." A suit against two physicians, for a piece of stupid malpractice, is ou trial in Worcester. David H. Maynard, of Clinton, put himself into the hands of Drs. Benditt and Symonds, of that town, to have a stiff finger cut off. They gave him chloroform and took off a good finger, and he wants $15,000 damages for it. All the doctors urge is that chloroform stiffened all of May nard's fingers. Youth's Department. To Correspondents.

Rejoicing in Omaha, New York, Philadelphia, Chicago, &c. Special Telegram to the Cincinnati Commercial. Promontobt Summit, Utah, May 10. Tbe long and anxiously looked-for event, the connection of the Atlantic seaboard to tbe golden shores of tbe Pacific, wns final ly accomplished t noon to-day. The ever memorable ceremony was witnessed by tbe principal officers of both companies and about two hundred invited guests. Among them were Generals Connor and Tbrie, H. C. Nottingham, Superintendent of the Cleveland and Erie, and Governor Stanford, of Arizona. The entire nnmber of employees and guests did not probably exceed one thousand. After exchanging congratulations, while the laborers of the Union Pacific and tbe Chinamen of the Central were employed in arranging the tracks for the lant rail, and before proceeding with this ceremony, the Rev. Dr. Todd oflered up a prayer, ask ing the favor of Heaven upon the enter prise. This was followed by the speech of Dr. Harkness, of California, in presenting Governor Stanford with the spike of gold. This was replied to by Governor Stanford in a few appropriate remarks. Governor Stanford of Arizona, then pre sented a similar spike to the officers of the Union Pacific Kailroad. The response was made by General Dodge. Then the two last rails were laid, oppo site each other. Wires were so arranged that tbe City Hall bell at San Francisco was struck at every stroke of the hammer, and tbe last stroke discharged a cannon connected at San Francisco in electrical circuit, Tbe lines eitst were also placed in connection, to report every stroke at Omaha, Chicago, New York and Boston. About 12 o'clock the work of driving the last spike commenced, amid the deafening shouts of the mnltitude. In less than two minutes the great continental highway from ocean to ocean was uu accomplished fact. At Washington. Special Telegram to the Commercial. Washington, D. C, May 10. The com pletion of the Pacific Kailroad to-day, and the transmission of the proceedings at Promontory Point by telegraph, to the principal offices throughout the country, was the subject of much Interest and amusement. At the principal office of the Western Union Telegraph Company in this city, the manager, Mr. Fiuker, ad justed a bell to tbe instrument in his pri vate office, and notified tha various offices that be was ready. New Orleans, thirteen hundred miles distant, instantly respond ed "ready." New York and a hundred other offices repeated the word "ready Inquiries from every par, of the continent greatly annoyed tbe Omaha operator, and he shortly responded: "To everybody: Shut up Snd keep quiet. When the last spike is driven at Promontory Point they will say "Done." Don't break tbe circuit, but watch for the signals of the blows of the hammer." After some little trouble in the Chicago office, and the closing of a circuit west of Buffalo, the instrument here was adjusted, and at 2:27 P. M. Fromontory Point, 2,400 miles from Washington, said to the people congregated in the various lelegraph offi ces: "Almost ready: bats off; prayer is being offered." A silence for the prayer ensued. At 2:40 tbe bell tapped again, and the office at the Point said: "We have got done prayer. The spike is about to be presented." Chicago replied: "We under stand: all are ready in the East." "Promontory Point. All ready now; the spike will be driven. The signal will be three dots for the commencement of the blows." For a moment the instrument was silent; then tbe hammer of the magnet tapped the ball one two three the signal. An other pause of a few seconds. The light ning came flashing eastward, vibrating over twenty-four hundred miles to Wash ingtou, and the blows of tbe hammer upon tbe spike were measured instantly in tel egranhic accents of (he bell here. At 2:47 P. M., Promontory Point gave the signal "Done!" and the continent was bound in iron. ... At Omaha. Special Telegram to the Commercial. Omaha, May 10. Although heavy rains fell last night and occasional showers to day made pedestrianisin uncomfortable, yet the outpouring of the people of this city and vrcinity was never beiore equaled. The morning trains from the West brought fire companies and tbe Masonic fraternity from Fremont, and a large number of peo ple from the towns and settlements as far west as the JSorth Platte. Before noon the streets were crowded with people, anx iously awaiting the signal from Capitol Hill, where a park of artillery were sta tioned, in tbe neighborhood of the observ atory, to enable them to fire a salute tbe moment the telegraph signals announced that tbe last spike had been driven. At 1 o'clock P. M. various organizations, comprising General Augur, staff, and the military stationed at Sherman barracks, the entire lire department of Omaha and Fre mont, and Masons, Odd Fellows, Turn verein, Fenian organizations, Overland expresses, Pacific . Telegraphic corps, offi cers and employees of tlie Union Pacific, State, City and County officials, and a full representation of various trades and pro fessions, formed under tbe Mnrshalsof tbe day. About 1:30 P.M., a salute of one hundred guns, tbe ringing of bells, and the shrieking of whistles of steamers and locomotives, announced that Omaha and Sacramento were forever united by iron bonds. Tbe procession then started, marched through the principal streets to Capitol Square, where General Clinton B. Fisk, General Anderson, and Judge Wak ley delivered appropriate addresses. The public and private dwellings, particularly those ot tbe officers of the Uuion Pacific Railroad, Chicago and Northwestern Rail road, and Council Bluffs and St. . Joseph Railroad, were handsomely decorated, many of them with inscriptions suggestive of the great change in overland travel traffic since 1864. This evening there was a great display of fire-works and a brilliant illumination all public and many private dwellings, followed by a grand ball at tbe Capitol, closing a day which opened a new page in the history of Omaha. ' At Chicago. Special Telegram to the Commercial. Chicago, May 10. To-day has been the occasion of a grand gala in - this city. The ceremony of laying the last rail of tbe great Pacific Railroad was cele brated here in an unusually grand man ner. From an early hour in the morning the streets were crowded with "sight seers," or with those who .were preparing to participate in tbe general jubilee, and about 2 o'clock in tbe afternoon the tele graph announced tbe fact that the last spike had been driven Into the track.when, amid the firing of cannon, the ringing of an innumerable number of bells, and the blowing of about the. same number of steam whistles, the grand inaugural pro cession was organized aud set in motion. The procession iucluded the police and fire department of the city, the employees of tbe poet-ofBce, a large number of rail road attaches, and an immense represen tation of the several mechanical and mer cantile interts s of the West. It was over four miles in length. Nearly all tbe wag ons in the long line presented appropriate devices and mottoes, all of greater or less excellence. After the procession had oc cupied three or four hours in marching through the principal streets of the city, it passed in review at the court-house be fore Vice President Colfax, Governor Pal mer of this State, Mayor Rice of Chicago, and several other distinguished gentlemen. This evening tbe city is very generally illuminated, and almost universal rejoic ing prevails. Bands of Music are prome nading the street, bonfires are burning on every side, while nearly All the large cen tral buildings are in a blaze of glory. Cheer after cheer rends the air, and it i-i very evident that tho people of Chicago at least thoroughly appreciate the advanta ges of the Pacific Railroad. A very largely attended meeting Is now being held in Library Hall, under the Presidency of Mayor Rice. Mr. Colfax bas spoken for about half an hour in a very enthusiastic manner. He briefly re cited the history and work of bniid'uig the road, and alluded at some length to tbe day of greatness which its completion opens to the nation. Mr. Colfax was followed by Governor Bross, who only recited his experience on tbe Plains in tbe vicinity of the railroad. Chicago bas seldom seen a more interest ing and exciting day than this has len. The city seems fairly alive with enthusiasm, and on every hand scenes of rejoicing are manifested. Upon tbe lake and in tbe harbor nearly all the vessels have appear ed with all their flags flying, and on the land the celebration bas extended from thecentreof the city far away into the remotest suburban towns and villages. Western Associated Press Telegram. Chicago, May 10. The celebration of tbe completion of the great Continental railroad connection to-day, was the most successful affair of the kind that ever took place in Chicago, and possibly in the West. It was entirely impromptu, and almost every man, woman aud child in this city did tbeir part toward making it a success. Tbe procession was unique in appearance and immense in length, the lowest esti mate putting it seven miles. Every mer chant, every trader, every drayman, every milkman, every express company, and every business wagon was in the line, and generally filled with l oxes, (supposed to contaiu goods,) directed to merchants in every city and town between here and China.- Brigbam Young seemed to be far tbe largest consignee, as about every one of the 3,000 or 4,000 business wagons had one or more packages marked to his ad dress. Almost every wagon bore some pleasant motto or device; got up secundum artem. Just before the procession moved, every tog in the river or lake front, over fifty in number, opened their whistles and set up a scream which seemed to awake the echoes from the other side' of Lake Michigan; shortly after the Court-house sounded its tintinabulations, announcing that tbe last spike in the last rail was be ing driven home, and then the procession moved and continued to move until six o'clock, wben it dispersed. During the moving of the' procession Vice President Colfax received the following dispatch: "Promontory Summit, Utah, May 10. "Hon. Schuyler Colfax, Vice President: "The rails were connected to-day. The prophecy of Benton to-day is a fact. This is the way to India. "G. M. Dodoe, "John Duff, "Sidney Dillon, "T. C. Durant." This evening Vice President Colfax, Lieutenant Governor Bross aud others, addressed a large audience at Library Hall, in which they spoke eloquently of the great era which this day marks in tho history of our country. During the evening there was also a general indul gence in fire-works, bonfires, illumina tions, Sc. At New York. New York, May 10. News was re ceived here, to-day, of the completion of the Pacific Railroad.

A commemoration celebration had previous ly been held in Trinity Church, at which a telegram, forwarded by the Chamber of Commerce to a similar body in Sun f ran- cisco, was read, and an address delivered by the Rev. William Viutou. After pray er and the- reading of a portion of the Episcopal service, the organ pealed and the chimes rung as the large congregalion left the church. Flags on the City Hail and mauy public and private buildings were displayed all day in honor of the great event. Dispatches from Washington, r"liiiaaei- phia and many other places, report much enthusiasm over tbe news. At Philadelphia. Pim.ADKi.PHiA, May 10.

St. Lons, May 10 The fire-alarm bells in this city were struck at six minutes to 2 o'clock this afternoon, in response to the blows of the hammer which drove tbe last spike in the Union Pacific Railroad.

A Strangled Joke. A young man seated at dinner, tbe other da-, said to his wife: "Ellen, if 3-ou are good at guessing, here is a conundrum for you: If the devil should lose his tail, where would he go to get another one?" After some time spent in guessing, she gave it up. "Well, said he, "where they rf tail bad spirits." Eager to get it off. ehe hastened to a lady frieud, with: "Oh, Marian, I nave pucn a nice conundrum! Joe just told me of it. I know vou cau t guess it. If the devil should lose bis tail, where would he go to get another one?'' Her friend Marian having given it up, ehe said: "Where they sell liquor Dy me glass!" Marian couldnt seethe point oi the joke. The man who was struck favorably by a plan did not sustain serious in jury.

T., recently, a velocipede ran away with ita owner, who, nnable to manage the critter, was pitched into a plate glass window, catting his face, demolishing his pan taloons, and frightening a passing horse into such a frenzy as to rosult in the smashing of the bnggy to which the animal was attached. I As asequal to tho expedition, the velocipede wrecked itself against a stone wall. The damages resulting from this experiment at taming the . "no-hoss-to feed" were: Surgeon's bill for dressing face cut by broken glass, 5; tailor's bill for renewing un mentionables, $11; broken window, $40; demolished carriage, SAO; used , up velocipede, $100 total, $216. The 'experiment is said to bave proven en ' tirely satisfactory to the party interested. A House of Your Own. Next to being married to the right person, there is notiiingso important in one's life as to live under one's own roof. There is something more than a po etical charm in the expression of the wife: "We have our cozy home, it is ; thrice dear to us, because it is our jown. We have bought it with the savings of our earnings. Many were jthe soda-fotintains, the confectionery ' saloons, and the niceties of the mar ket we had to pass; many times my noble husband denied himself the comfort of tobacco, tho refreshing draught of beer; wore his old clothes and even palehed-up boots; and I, O me! made my old bonnet do, wore the plainest clothes and did the plainest cooking; saving was the : order of the hour; and to have "a house of our own" has been our united aim. "Now we have it ; there is no 'land lord' troubling us raising the rent and exacting this and that. There is no fear harboring in our bosom that in sickness or old age we will bo thrown out of house and home, for it is our own, and the money we have paid to save rent is sufficient to keep us in comfort in the winter days of life. What a lesson do the above words teach, and how well it would be if hundreds of families would heed them, and instead of living in rented houses, which take a large share of their cap ital to furnish, and a quarter ot their earnings to pay rent, dress and eat corresponding, would bravely 'curtail their expenses and concentrate their efforts for the sake of having "house of their own." Better a cottage of your own, than a rented palace. Hav the Heart Eight. There is a great deal in being in harmony with what you have to do, or what you go any where to listen to or en joy. You learn more from a discourse on any subject with which already you have some acquaintance and vou experience satisfaction and de light, and receive and retain impres sion's of pleasure, in proportion as yon have an in ward sympathy with any thin cr vou read, eoe, or hear. The law of nature is applicable to religion and religious engagements. You can do much to promote in yourselves and to seek from God that "preparation of heart" for your Sabbath-worship, which being possessed, you wiil find that neither the day nor the duty can be felt as "a weariness.'' It makes everj- prayer instructive as a sermon, and a true sermon, though eloquent, subduing as devotion and sweet as song. Many a poor discourse is rich to them whose heart, is right; and many a good one appears bad from causes existing only in the heart. The Beauty op Age. Ladies, es pecially married ladies, are more giv en, I think, than men, to neglect their personal appearance, when they are conscious that tha bloom of youth is gone. Then, however, is the time, above all others, when the wife must determine to remain tho pleasing wife, and retain her affections to the las', by neatness, taste, and appropri ate variety oi dress. - : That a lady bas fit growing daughters, strapping sons, and a hus band at his office all day long, is no reason why she should ever enter the family circle with rumpled hair, soil ed cap or unfastened gown. The prettiest woman in the world would be spoiled by such sins in her toilet. The morning's duties, even in the stove room and kitchen, may be per formed in fitting,- tidy costume, and then changed for parlor habiliments equally tidy and fitting. I honestly protest, whatever her age, a natural ly good looking woman ia always handsome. For, happily, there ex is's more than one kind of beauty. There is the beauty of infancy, the beauty of 3"oulh, and the beauty of maturity, and, believe me, ladies and genth men, tlio beauty of age, if you do not spoil it by your own want of judgment. At any rate a woman may bo becomingly and pleasingly d reused. Weightier words are rarely used in formal reports than those in which the Coroner's Jury on the six victims of the late Long Island Railroad acci dent render their verdict : "We find that they came to their death on the morning of April 23, 1869, by an ac cident which occurred on the Long Island Railroad near Willow Tree Station, in the town of Jamaica, in consequence of a car being thrown from the track by a defective rail, and hold that the Long Island Railroad Company are responsible for said ac cident by neglecting their duty in keeping their track in proper order." Think of This. "She died," said Polly, "and was never seen again, for she was buried in the ground where the trees grow." "The cold ground?" said the child, shuddering again. "No; the warm ground," returned Polly; "where the ugly little seeds are turned into beautiful flowers, and where good people turn into angt-ls, and fly away to heaven." Dkkens. Housewife's Corner.

Does It Pay to Make Rag Carpet? Jennie T. Hazen, in tha Western Rural, says no, and specifies as follows : In. the first place, if you reckon your time as worth anything, it don't pay. In the second pla e, if you cut, or tear up garments which might be worn longer as they are, or cut over for some other purpose, it don't pay. If you buy new cloth, red or green as I have known women to do it don't pay. If yoa hire it woven, and pay 15 cents per yard, It don't pay. A ' If you devote your time to it to tha exclusion ot other duties, it don't pay. If you weave it yourself, up-stairs in a cold room, or in the wood-house, and take a cold which may terminate in something very serious, if not fatal, it don't pay. 1 If you buy your dye-stuffs at the present prices, it don't . pay. If you can do any other kind of work, and earn a carpet, it don't pay. If it is made for the "other room' and is to be kept immaculate from the tread of profane feet, except on com pany days, it don't pay. If it involves the sitting up half the: night, when nature demands repose-, it don't pay. ' , " If it makes you nervous and cross, and you scold your husband, and spank the children, it don't pay. s Preservation op Furs. An ex- - t change has the following with reference to the preservation of furs, which, no. doubt, will be of interest to many of. our readers. . "The worst thing to be done with,' furs is to shut them out of sight from, the air and forget them.' The next worst thing is to put them away damp. Should they become w et by exposure to the rain, they should be- placed no nearer to the fire than where they will dry slowly. When the s ar son for their use is over, they should not be shut up in a tight chest, bex or- drawer for more than a few days or a week w thout being taken out and well shaken. Putting them in a drawer that Is frequently openc, is lecom-. n-euded, in order that they may b9, frequently seen, and thus constantly, remind one of the necessity of attend ing to them. To preserve furs perex-t ly and without the least fear of moth frequent airing, shaking and general cleanliness are necessary." Cure of Lockjaw.

"You've got a , very dirty face, said the swallow, "you should wash it before you eat," anil ' the cat was foolish enough to drop the bird, so that she could wash hr fare, and away flew the swallow.
