The time of the year has now come when fires are to be re kindled. Old cracked stoves will be brought out suddenly and pnt up the first cold snap. Unsafe and soot-filled chimneys are crowded with two or three stove pipes. The consequen ces to some body will be disastrous. The house, store or shop will take fire some day and burn up before you are aware of it And then some one will find when too late, they had no insurance. Be wise be fore the fire. Look to your stoves, know they are whole. Examine your stove pipes, clean your chim ney. See that all cracks and holes therein are securely plastered up. Put up your stoves well, and then come to I.

O Christ of God I whose life and death Our own have reconciled, Most quietly, most tenderly Take home thy star-named ohild I Thy grace is in her patient eyes. Thy words are on her too'gae; The Terr silence round her seems As if the angels sung. Her smile is as a listening child's That hears its mothers call; The lilies ot thy perfect peace Above her pillow falL She leans from out oar clinging arms To rest herself in Thine; Alone to Thee, dear Lord, can we Our well-beloved resign. Oh, lets for her than for ourselves We bow our heads and pray; Her setting star, like Bethlehem's, To Thee shall lead the way. BY J. G. WHITTIER. Selected Story. MARTHA PHILLIPS. She was dead. An old woman, with silvery hair brushed smoothly away from her wrinkled forehead, and snowy cap tied under her chin; a ead quiet face, patient mouth with lines about it that told of sorrow born of gentle firmness; and two withered, tired hands.crossed with a restless look. That was all. Who, loo ting at the sleeping form, would think of love and romance, of a heart only just healed of a wound received long.long years ago? Fifty Tears she had bred under that roof, a farmer s wife. If you look on that little plate on the coffin lid, you will see "Aged 70" there. She was only twenty when John Phillips brought her home a bride. A half century sue bad Rept watcu over dairy and larder, hsd made but ter and cheese, and looked after the innumerable duties that fall to the share of the farmer's wife. And John had ncTer gone with button- less shiiU or undarned socks; had never come home to an untidy house ana scolding wife. His trim, tidy Martha had been his pride; and though not a demonstrative hus band, he had boasted sometimes of the model housewife who kept his house in order. But underneath her quiet exterior there was a story that John never dreamed of, and would have believed m possible had ho been told, bhe did not marry for love. When she was nineteen, a rosy bappy girl, a stranger came on a visit to her vil lage, and. that summer was the brightest and happiest sue had ever known. Paul Gardner was the stran ger's name; he was an artist.and fell in love with the simpio village girl and won her heart; and when he went away in the autumn they were both betrothed. 'I'll come back in the spring," ho said. "Trust me and wait for me, MaUic.dear." - She promised to love and wait for him till the end of time, if need be; and with a kiss on her quivening lips he went away. Mattie Gray did not tell her fath er and mother of her love, for they had no liking for London folks, and had treated Paul none too hospita bly when he ventured inside their home. Spring time came, and true to his word Paul returned; he stayed only a day or two this time. "I am going away in a few weeks to Italy to study," he said, "I shall be cone two years, and then I shall come and claim you for my bride. Thev renewed their vows and Darted with tears and tender loving words; he put a tiny ring upon her Cnzer: and cut a little curly tress from her brown hair, and telling her to always be true and wait for him, he went away. The months went bv, and Mattie was trying to make the time seem short by studying to improve her self so that she might be worthy of her lover when he 6houldcome back to make her his wife. "It must be tbout time for Mm to start," she said to herself one day, And by and by as she gazed over a newspaper, her eyes were attracted by his name, with white lips ana ai lated eyes she read of his marriage to another. "Married! Taken another bride instead of coming back to marry me! Ob, Paul, Paul ! I loved and trust ed you too much for this." She covered her face with her beautiful hands and wept bitterly An hour afterwards as she sat there in the twilight with the fatal news nsDer in her lap, she heard a step on the gravel walk, and looking she saw John Phillips coming up tne siep He had been to see her often be fore but had never yet spoken of love, and had of course received no eneauraeement to do so. He was a plain, hard"working farmer, with no romance about Him, out mauer-01 fact to the core. His wife would get few caresses or tender words. He would be kind enough give her plenty to cat and wear but that was all. Now he seemed to have come for the express purpose or asking her to be his wife, for he took a chair and seated himself beside her, and after the usual greeting, reserving scarcely a moment to take breath, began in his business like way, to converse, mere was no coniession of love, no pleading, no hand clasp ing, no tender glances; he simply wanted her; would she be riswiief His manner was hearty enough; there was no doubt he really wanted would rather marry her than any other woman he knew but that was all. . Her lips moved to tell him that she didn't love him; but as she let her eye lall from the crimson heart ed rose that swung from the vine over the window, she caught sight of those few lines again. "Married ! " she said to herself. What can I do? He does not ask me to love hira. If I marry him can be a true wife to him and nobody will know that Paul has lilted me. The decision was made. Her cheeks were hszy pale as she looked straight into his eyes and answered, " Yes. I will dot your wire." Her parents were pieasea tnat sne was chosen by so well-to-do a young man, so it was settled, and they were marriAf the fisUBO amjaei. People) thought she sobered down wonder fully; more than that nothing was said that would lead an' one to sup pose that any change had taken place. Yes, she had sobered down. She dared not think of Paul. There was no hope ahead. Life was a time to be rilled with something that she might not think of herself. John was always kind, but sue trot so wearied of his talk of stock and crops, and said to herself, "I must work harder, plan and fuss and bus tie about as other women do, so that I may forget and grow like John. Two years went swiftly by. A baby slept in the cradle and Martha nobody called her Mattie but Paul sal rocking with her foot a3 6he knitted a blue woolen stockins for the baby's father. There was a knock at the half open door. "I have sot on the wrong road; will you be kind enough to direct me the nearest way to the village? " said a voice, and a stranger stepped in. She rose to givo him the requir ed direction, but stopped short while he came quickly forward. "raul." "Mattie!" His face lighted up, and he reach ed out his arms to draw "her to him. With a surprised, pained look she drew back. "Mr. Gardner, this is an unexpect ed meeting." "Mr. Gardner?" he repeated. Mattie, what do you mean? " "Don't call me Mattie, if you please," she replied with dignity. My name is Phillips." "Phillips?" ho echoed, "are you married? " "These are strange words from von, Paul Gardner. Did you think I was waiting all this time for another woman's husband. That I wa3 keep ing my faith with one who played me false so soon? " 'Played you false ! I have not. I have coma as I promised yon. Why do you greet me thus. Are you in deed married, Mattie Gray?" She was trembling like an aspen leaf. For an answer she pointed to the cradle. He came and stood be fore her with whit9 face and folded arms. "Tell me why yon did this? Did n't yon love ma well enough to wait for me? " She went and unlocked a drawer and took out a newspaper. Unfold insi it, and finding the place, she pointed to it with her linger and read the marriage notice. "What of this?" he asted, as he met her questioning, reproachful look. "Oh! Mattie! you thought it meant me! It is my cousin. I am not married, nor in love with any one but yourself." "Are you teiling me the truth" she asked in an eager, husky voice. And then he replied, "It is true; and she gave a low groan and sank down into a chair. . "Oh, Paul, forgive me. I didn't know you bad a cousin by the same name. 1 ought not to have doubted you, but 'twas there in biacK ana white, and this man, my husband, came, a mil married him. With bitter tears bhe told how it happened. With clenched hands he walked to and fro, and then stopped beside the cradle and bent over the sleeping child. Lower he bent till his iips touched its wee forehead, while he muttered to himself "Mat- tie's baby." lhen he turned and kneeling be fore her, said, in a low voice, "I for- Cive you, Mattie. be as happy a3 you can." He took both her hands in his and looked steadily, lovingly into her face. His lips twitched convlusively, as he rose to bis feet. I have no right here you are an other man's wife. Good-bye God bless you. He turned as he went out of the door, and saw her standing there in tho middle of the room, with arm3 outstretched. He went back, and putting his arms around her, pressed one kiss upon her check, and left the house, never looking back. And she went down on her knees beside her sleeping ba'oy, and pray ed for strength to bear her great trial. They never saw each other asrain. Seventy years old! Her stalwart sons and briaht eyed daughters re member her as a lovini', devoted mother, her grey-headed husband as a most laithful wild. "Never was a woman more patient aud kind, and as good a housewife as ever was," he said, as he brushed the back of bis own brown hand across his eyes, while looking down on the peaceful face. And not one of them ever knew of the weary heart and broken hopes that had died in her breast, nor even dreamed of the sad hopes she had borne through life. The Cadi's Revenge. A terrible story comes to us Persia. In one of the districts a la boring man was sentenced to be baetinadoed for some offense, re ceiving 120 blows on the soles of his feet. As he sank down on his knees alter the sentence had been carried out, and it was believed that his injuries were of a serious char acter, he called the Judge to his side ntimatmg that he had a terrible se cret to reveal. As he could only speak ia a whisper, the Judge placed his ear to the lips or the lainting man, when the latter sized it with his teeth, and ia his agony bit it off. Ia Persia the loss of an ear, no mat ter under what circumstances, is considered a lasting disgrace, and the Judge so felt it He at once gave orders to have the prisoner care fully cared for, assuring the physi cians that if they did not save his life their own should pay the penal ty, and they succeeded. When the prisoner was iuliy recovered, ne was sentenced to have his teeth pulied .-.nt. nnn hv one. in rjresence of the mob, and this frightful sentence was car" ried out two days being exhausted in the work. No pains were taken with the horrible job, and the jaws were broken and crushed until the whole lower part of the man's face was a mangled mass, and his suffer ings were so great that many of the men fainted in witnessing the ope ration. Two daya aftc the little life in the man was beaten out of the soles of his feet, and the Judge, hav ing fully satisfied his thirst for Tenge&nca, committed suicide. A LOVER'S ADVICE. Jilting'a Girl after Five Years of Courtship—Penalty Five Hundred Dollars. At the Manchester Assizes on Aug. 7, before Boron Pollock, Miss Alice Rainkstraw, residing at St. Oswald Grove, Manchester, sued Mr. Joseph C. Nottingham, an engi neer in the Government dockyard at Portsmouth, for damages for breach of promise of marrage. Mr. Herschell.Q. C , and Mr. Lsss- celles appeared for the plaintiff. The defendant was unrepresented by counsel. Mr.Herschell said the plaintiff and defendant met at the house of a friend in Manchestor in the com mencement of 1809, when the defen dant commenced paying her marked attention. One evening when tbey were returning together from a tea meeting, he asked her to become his wife, and she consented. After that a considerable number of letters pass ed between them. In. August i860 he wrote a letter to her, in which he wrote under great depression of mind owing to her absence.but more especialty on account of her health, he having been latormed that she was unwell. Other letters of an af fectionate character followed and in one of them dated Dec. 16, 1869 he wrote, "I was thinking how much you would be enjoying yourself at the Band of Hope meeting last night, bnt poor me cannot go to those meetings now." Laughter. He also wrote, "We must indulge in hope. How sweet it is to hope for our heart's sincere desire. However small may be the ray, what satisfac tion it affords to think it shall one day be achieved. Such, dearest Alice, is the longing desire of my aeart .that we shall not be separated a3 we are now. He continued writing in this way from time to time. He also sent her verses from time to time, of which the following was a specimen: I ask not If the world nnfold A fairer form than thine, Treeses more rich in glowing gold, And eyes of sweeter shine. That thon hast lock of golden glow. And ejes of playful light. This went on until the present year, the acienaens ouiaineu situ ation in the Government dockyard in Portsmouth ; some time after he wrote to the plaintiff: "I am sorry to hear that some of your friends should have insulted you about me. I must tell you I have resolved to go to sea. I am going to the w est Indies. I can see no prospect of keeping myself and a wife on my present income, so have adopted this course, and think you had bet ter not refuse any reasonable, offer. Laughter. My reason for doing that is that I could never think of taking you from home and placing you in an inferior position. At the time ho wrote the letter he was ac tually paying his addresses to an other lady, whom he has since mar ried on the same income which he pretended in his letter to the plain tiff would not be sufficient to main tain himself and a wife. He had thus broken his promise to the plaintiff after a five years courtship. The plaintiff and her father were examined. The latter stated that the defendant's regular salary in the dockyard was 34shiHing3 per week, besides what he earned by working overwork. The jury returned a verdict for the plaintiff; damages 100.

A bootblack painted in rude let ters upon his box "Centennial Shine That boy is both patriotic and shrewd, and he sets an example. The Danbury 2?ews man says: "There is nothing that will change a man so much as great grief, u"nles it is shaving off his mustache." A custom-house man writes that he has heard ladies of refinement, wealth, position and education lie a customs' officer out of countenance- The Ohio legislature has introdu ced a bill fixing a fine of from five to fifty dollars for pointing any kind of firearms at a person, loaded or unloaded. Are blacksmiths, who are making a living by forging, or carpenters. who do a little counter-fitting, any and worse than men who sell iron steel for a living., A Chicago gentleman who recent ly traveled through Ohio says that everybody he met called potatoes "taters" except one young lady, who called him a "small pertater." "You must be a quarrelsome fel low," said a phrenologist to a man whose bumps he was examining. "Say that again and I'll knock you down," was the response. Tftho cause of the redness or a certain Chicago deacon's nose were only discovered, a very important theological question in that city would be at once disposed of. An English jadge, Baron Alderson on beins asked to give his opinion as to the proper length of a sermon, replied, 'Twenty minute, wia a leaning to the side of mercy." Victor nil go is deeply in love with the United States, and one minute out of every hour, when he is awake, is devoted to talking about ehis country, and tho other fifth nine minutes beins devoted to talk about himself. A gentleman was complimenting a pretty young lady in the presence of his wife, "It's lucky I did not meet Miss Hopkins before I married you. my dear." "Well, yes, it is ex tremtly for her," was the dry re joinder. A young man having pnt a crown piece into the plate in an Edinburhg church by mistake, instead of a pen ny, asked to have it back but was refused. Ia once, in forever. "Aweel nwppl " o-rn ntcd he.

In hours of ambition and pleasure we may sometimes forget its exquis ite sweetness, but let sicicess or sadness come and we return to it at once. Let the hollow hearts that feign a friendship which they do not fee), stand revealed before us let us know, as we must at such mo ments, that however important we may be in our own estimation, our places would be filled at an hour's notice, Bhouid we die to-morrow-then we whisper to ourselves the magic word Home.and are comforted.

It i3 where those we love dwell, where ever that may be, where we are val ued for ourselves, and are held in esteem because of what we are in ourselves, and not because of Dower, or wealth, or what we can do for other people. Who would be without a home? Who would take the world's ap plause and honocin place of the ten derness of a few hearts and the cozy fireside meetings where the truth may be spoken without diaguise.and envious carpings are unknown? In life's battle even the hero finds many enemies, and much abuse and slan der, and detraction; but into home; if it is what it ought to be, these things never find their way. There, to bis wife, the plainest man becomes a wonderful being a sage, a man who ought to be great, successful, and honored, and who would be, were his worth known. And if pa says a thing is so.it i3 so, by a revelation to his children. At home the memory of vanished charms clings to his wife, who, ah, if coquettes only knew it! remains a fresh young beauty there long af ter she is a plain, middle-aged wo man everywhere else. There grand pa's stories are never tedious, and grandma's receipts for cake are ap preciated, and the gawky girls are all beauties, and the boys, ill used beings elsewhere, are all embryo heroes. As for the baby oh! bless ed baby! it may be a nuisance to the people next door, but it is a gift from paradise at home, though it does scream half the night, and. re quire one of the family to be under marching orders for the rest of the time. Providence gives us no greater worldly gift than the gift of home; for Providence knows how sorely we need its rest, its peace, the calm which love-casts over us within it. And if there is a being to be pit ied, it is one who has no home, thougn the enchanted purse of fairy land, and all it can buy, are his or hers. Home, dear home! If it only holds a venerable mother, or a little child, or any being who is dear, and fond, and true, thank God for it, and cling to it as to very life. The Immorality of Royal Frenchmen j A writer iu the Saturday says: "la trance a dissipated court has been the rule which has been proved by occasional rare excep- ti039, and .raris has long Deen ia miliar with scandals that dazzled it. We need not go back to Charlc- mange, with ins uaugoters carrying their lovers on their shoulders across the fresh fallen snow, nor to those mysterious atrocities of the Tours de Nesle which recall the infamous horrors of the Lower Roman Em pire. The best and ablast of the French Kings have been the worst men and the worst husbands.

As for the great Bearnais, the protege of the austere Huguenots, the convert or the lope and the Catholic clergy, he was as openly disreputable ia his life and morals as any or his suDjects, wnicu is saying a great deal. The descend ants of his branch of the Bourbons showed themselves his worthy line sere in that way. if in no other, and the greatest or them even succeeaea in lmnrovinz on their ancestor, Great Kin? var excellence, who lived is he died, under the eyes of his faithful subjects, who made it his ambition to occupy the attention of all Europe, travelled to the camp at tondpd hv carriages filled with his favorite sultanas, while tne tueen -- 0 of France was left to pray for him in her oratory at home.

Butler, the Demo crats have re-nominated Fernando j Wood, and the game is even, The Lincoln Monument. The unveiiingof the Lincoln mon ument ia SpringQelcJ, Illinois, oa Thursday, the 15h inst., completed a work of patriotism which the na tion owed to one of its greatest mea. The idea of erecting a suitable mon ument to the martyred President was one of the first and most nat ural expressions that found vent ia the hearts of the American people after the assassin had done his mur derous work. While his remains were being borne slowly through the country to their final resting place, letters were received daily from ail parts of the country, suggesting , that a great national monument be erected oyer his grave. No monu ment, whatever its proportions, or however perfect as a work of art, could have adequately Bymbolizad the love and honor entertained by him for hiscountrymen. A reSaed . poetical imagination has spokea of sculpture as "petrified music," fancy ing that the disembodied sounds while floating through the air, were caught and transformed into motion less proportions of grace, harmony ' and beauty. Could some artist have seized the feeling of love, reverence; and sadness that pervaded the heart of the nation on the announcement of the tragical death of the Presi dent, expressing it in words, or upon the canvass or in maroie, it would have resulted in a more transcendent work than imagination ever pro- . duced. Bat the nation has, ia acer- ain degree, given an appropriate and endmiag expression of its ad miration and love for the great Pres ident. . It has inaugurated a beauti ful monument ia the city where President Lincoln lived and prac ticed law, where he enjoyed his first triumphs a3 a oublic speaker and ' won his first victories ia the race for political honors, and where he lived : in the midst of contentment until called forth by the voice of the na tion to steer the ship of state through the storms of war. . On the morning of the 24'.h of April, 1835, the State Journal, pub lished in Springfield, Illinois, sug gested the formation of the "Nation al Lincoln Monument Association." The suggestion was acted upon and a call issued for contributions to the work. The people responded prompt ly. A contract was entered into with Mr. Larkin G. Mead, Jr., who agreed to furnish all the statuary ia bronis as follows: . ; 1. A statute of Lincoln, not less than ten feet high, for $ 1 3,700. 2. A group representing Infantry, containing three figures and appro priate accessories, the figures to be not less than seven and & half feet high, fof 113,700. 3. A group or cavalry, to coataia a horse and two human figures, with appropriate accessories, the human figures to be not less thaa sevea and a half feet high, and the horse ia proportion, for the sum of $13,700. 4. A group or artillery, to contain. three figures and appropriate acces sories, the figures to be not less thaa seven and a half feet high, for $13, 700. 5. A marine group, to contain three figures and appropriate acces sories, the figures to be not less thaa seven and a half feet high, for $13,- 700. 6. The coat of arms of the Unit ed States, as shown ia the speciaoa- tions. for $1,500 making a total or $70,000. This agreement was strictly car-' rd out and a contract was soon af ter entered snto between the Associ ation and Mr. Ricbardson.of bprin field, in whico he agreed to erect the monument, in Oak Ridge Cemetery, according to the plans and speciQca- tions adopted by the Association, for the sum of $136,550. The total con tributions to the monument fund amount to $180,120. Two or the groups are yet uncompleted, but it is expected that funds for their com- pletion win soon De raisea in .D03wa and Philadelphia. Ia a recent number of the Leader a full description of the monument was published. Those who were present at its dedication on Thurs day were very enthusiastic ia their admiration of the work, and it has yet been the subject of no adverse criticism, lhouga its cost was small in comparison with the larg9 number of individuals who contribu ted to it, still it can be declared em phatically a work of the nation. It contains an offering from representa tives of every branch or society. The contributions averaged about one dollar per man for the soldiers and sailors in the army and navy. About $3,000 came from the colored feoldiersin the United States army, and over $18,000 were given by Sun day Schools of the land. There were contributions from, churches, from lodges of Masons and Odd Fellows from private individuals, and a large sum was deposited in boxes, put op in banks, post offices and other pub lic places. The dedication services were in every respect suited to the occasion. About zo.wu persons were present, among whom were ad the members of the Grand Army of the Tennessee, the President or the United States, several members of his cabinet and the leading officers of our army. Senator Oglesby de livered an eloquent address review ing the life and services of the illus trious dead. Ex-Vice President Colfax, Vice President Wilson.Gea eral Sherman and others spoke brief ly, a concourse of singers chanted "With malice toward none, with chanty to all," and the stately mon ument was left to mark the spot of him who sleeps beneath it and to unite with history ia perpetuating his fame. Active Benevolence Benevolence is not a thing to be taken up by chance, aad put by at once to make way for every employ ment which savors of self interest. It is the largest part of our business, beginning with our homeduties;snd extending itself to the utmost verge of humanity'. A vague feeling of kindness toward our fellow creatures is no state of mind to rest ia. It is not enough for us to be able to say that nothing of human interest ia alien to ns aad that we give Our ac quiescence, or, indeed, our trsasieat assistance, to any schema of benevo lence that may come ia our way. No; in promoting the welfare of others, "we must toil; we must de vote to.it earnest thought, constant care, aad zealous emleavor. The few moments ia the course of the each day which a maa absorbs ia some worldly pursuit may carelessly expend ia kind words or charities to those around him kindness to aa animals is one of these and are perhaps, ia the sight of Heaven, the only time that he has lived to any purpose worthy of recording.
