The morning sun was rising fast As down tiie street there quickly passed A youth, who bore a-top his head Something that he gently said Was Bine Glass. His brow was sad, his hair beneath Hung thin and scattery from its sheath, While on his smooth, bald pate were cast The sun’s bright rays as through they passed The Blue Glass. "What's that you’ve got?” the old man cries As peeping over specs he spies This new invention for chapeau. The youth replies in tones quite low, Blue Glass. "Oh, dear,” a maiden said, "see here, This is a shave-pata, that’s quite clear,” A tear stood in his blight blue eye; He answered as he heaved a sigh, Blue Glass. “Look out! don't bump your bead me boy Or down will go that purty toy.” This was Biddy’s farewell speech; A voice replied, almost a screech, Blue Glass. j At close of day as homeward went The gathering throng that duty sent Abroad from early morning light, Was heard the praises oft that night Of Blue Glass.

HOW ONE MAN SAVED HIS WIFE “He might have done better, fur bet- ; ter! She's not worthy of John Forest' j r1! said Ins menus, when ho married pretty, giddy little Amy Deane. John was a universal favorite. Con-1 fidenoe v as inspired by a single glance of his clear, blue eye. What a sense of protection, too, one felt in his manly ; breadth of shoulder! And as for his1 heart—well, it was big in proportion. , Perhaps it was that very great-heart-, edness that had prompted him to marry j Amy. Hhe was an orphan, not viry Comfortably situated in an uncle's house, \ and it was no wonder she was glad of J the chance when a line man like John! I’orestal put a more inviting ufc in her reach. h< was inst th serf of roman to be spoiled by sncli a mini. An humble sense of his own deficiencies w-enn'd to' blind lu's generous eyes to hers. lie was so patient with her cwpr.ceii. 1 : hi* deailc fo makt. t*er llK. jlie WPS j capab'e of an mis‘lSshn. srs »h« did nor fail to exact. \\ liy d;d she in dry i.:m, if not to better herself? The honeymoon over, they went to live in an imposing house in a tashiou able part of the city, John s rjuieter ^ taste and domestic nature would have, preferred a smaller residence, with a few cosy rooms, where he and his wife i might be all tlie world to each other, i but Amy was more ambitious. The: little butterfly must have a lifting at- j niospliere in which to display her pretty , wings. Hhe had no idea of burying lier charms in dull seclusion. Hhe declared 1 society was a necessity—people grew so 1 homespun and stupid shut up to them-j selves—so John yielded. The elegant ^ house must be furnished in a style be~ i fitting its exterior, and John’s purse, was heavily taxed, but while his judg ment condemned lier lavish expendi- i tnro, he was forced to admit her effects j were admirable. A house-warming and n round of par tics followed, in which Amy shone, re-j splendent in silks and satins, till John j began to feel the necessity of retrench- j ment, When he'broached the subject to Amy she cried so, naturally enough j if began with himself. The last win ter’s overcoat, re-buttoned and braided, would answer another season. Little economies would show less in a ttv.u s dress. Ho things went on till the windows were darkened one morning in Amy s sumptuous chamber, and when John! leaned over to kiss her pale face, a little | daughter was laid in his arms. But Amy did not rally from this time, | as might have been expected. Too gay | a life had sapped a constitution feeble at dost, ana lnsieaa oi a inv wccw mu- j finemont, she lay for mouths upon lier sofa. When she was able to get about, j it was only in the false strength of stim-j ulants. She had not the patience to wait for strength, so she hastened the semblance of it with wine. Without it she was wretched. When day after day John say her shining eyes and flushed cheeks, and heard the sometimes giddy rattle of her talk, he begRn to fear a fatal habit was taking hold of her. The glow of health was notin her face, only the mocking, artificial stimulns. John remonstrated. Amy found her usual refuge in tears, which always made poor, perplexed John feel like a brute. Besides, backed as she was by the doc tor, what did John's remonstrance amount to? Alas! when does the devil's work stand still? When Amy finally emerged from her sick room and the doctor de clared she might now omit the daily stimulant, the habit was formed. People began to drop Mrs. Forestall name from their party lists. Really it was not safe to invite liar, yon know, eto., eto. It was as much as John Forestal could do to keep from clutching the doctor by the throat, when he passed him with a smiling bow. Had he not brought about this skeleton in his home? Lower Amy fell. She lost all inter est in her baby. She had never shown much, now she showed none. Do you think John left bis neglected house and sought clube and dissipation himself for solace? Not lie. When the keys of liis household dropped from the tinge..-> that her sin had made too weak to lmld them, John’s strong hand picked them up. Henceforth the servants waited upon his orders. So devotedly ntten tive was ho to his wife that his business suffered. Ho could not bear that hire lings should witness her disgrace so apenly. His owu great nature gave him faith even in hers. “It will be easier to rise, tho more I keep the world shut rut from a knowledge of the depth of tier fall," he would say to himself in liis faithful vigils by her side, when she cvi.,8 absolutely too insensible to know lie was thero. Despite bis care, John shuddered sometimes to tliiuk how many rove.a Lions tho smart housemaid probably made to her circle of acquaintances. 0e could not lower his wife still more., by broaching ths subject to the. girl. Indeed, he was dependent upon her ser vices. Who else knew so well how to manage liis child?—poor innocent,thrust into an existence, reeking with the fumes of its mother's wine I When Amy was sufficiently herself, John read to her, but she only dozed ■md never seemed to listen. Then ho bravely took her ont to theatres, con certs, drives. Though society guessed liis misery', he would keep Amy np. ns far as showing he was not ashamed to bo s‘>eu with her could do :t—but his great heart was breaking all the while. Alas, she lacked that strength in lu r self to work with him. Her cunning was more than a match for his endeav ors to keep the wine cup from her lips. One sheltering twilight he carried her town the steps of her home us easily as the maid might carry his baby, and shutting her little, cowering resisting form into a carriage, drove her to the Asylum for Inebriate?. When he came down to breakfast next, morning, the cook declared to the housemaid, “master didn't lock as ,'_» V .' 3 . ... „ 1. .11 .. :„l * •»’ The brain plays sad bavoc with the body. A stoop was beginning to bend John Forestall broad shoulders, and the dark locks on his temples were show ing silver streaks, lie had too much strength of character to sit idly down and let life drift away or shake society for a moment with his suicide, though lie was wretched enough to do < ither. He went back to bis counting-house and took up the broken threads . f his busi iis, enough their breaking made it ui eessary fur him to leave his elegant house and seek a more modest dw< lbcg. He was glad to leave it. it had green hateful to him. .toy tlit r.-»nfbi began grad ually to work a change for the bit'.r, \t firshe was furious at what Hie looked upon as a cruel imprisonment, Suit the wise management of 1 er ease, and John's grandly forgiving letters at the first hint of reformation, slowly opened her eyes to her sin and his pa tience. No one dared to speak her name lightly to John. Only his pastor ven tured to praise his long-suffering. ‘‘1 suppose God knew the poor little wo man’s weakness and sent me to take care of her,” was his simple answer. I5y and by Amy was brought from the asylum, a pale, puny wreck. No one would have guessed her former beauty, but in John’s sight her face was prettier than it had ever been, because the light of a better purpose shone in t A puritied soul looked out from the ey< s that had lost their girlish brightness. When she was able to carry the bur den of life alone, God called John to bis reward.* The promises of bis vig orous frame were not’fulfillod. II^do mestic unhappiness had worn liim out. lie rests from his labors in a secluded spot, where many a soft summer twi light a pale, sad-faced little woman and a slender girl, come to lay fresh floral offerings.

Susan Brown and William Heady, livers in the Lone Star State, one calm night, all sung and shady, side by side in converse sate. ’Twas on old man Brown's piazza; stars were brightening all the skies, and llie moon above the plaza, was just about upon the rise. 'Twas the hour for love or liquor—calm sweet hour in early June; love nor wine will never flicker on such a night with such a moon. Susan was as fair as Hebe dressed in all her Snndny clothes—fairer than her cousin riuebe who is fairer than tire rose. As for William—never wildwood sheltered youth more stout and hale lie was from his very childhood what the Texans call a whale. There they sat for hours a talking of their joys and hopes and fears; talking of their loves and chalking out their plans for coming years. Talked they also of their mar riage, hinting at no distant day when a little crib and carriage might perchance come into play. Thus they sat, her hand in prison— not a prison harsh or stern—for 'twas merely locked in his’n as his lips were pressed to iier'n. But alas! the course of true love smoothly runs oh never, never! hearts enlinked in old or new love soon, a'as! must sigh and sever, 01), that in a sea of rapture, where the heart most sweet ly floats fate piratic’s euie to capture half our joys and cut our throats! Hagji! the smell of shot and powder rises like a funeral knell! Louder, louder, and still louder rumbles that heart-rending smell. Susan's sybil soul prophetic knew that rumble meant but ill—kuew that old man Brown erratic was upon the hunt for Bill. Bill, the lode star, whom she follows, whither asking, caring not, now she feels that fifty dollars were poor pay to see him f shot. 01), the earnest love of woman! Lit tle for itself it seeks; it is not a thing 1 uucommou for its flame to last six weeks. All at onoo a door is busted close to where the lovers sit—William had got up and dusted but it was too late to git. i Era he dreamed of fight or fear once, or had time to out and run, old Brown made his appearance witli his double- p barreled gun. Susan's knees shook j fust and faster, William’s also shook ’tis p said, till they tumbled down the plaster * of the ceiling overhead. Susan screamed, her dark hair flying 1 like a meteor streaming far, springing F to her foot and crying, “Please don't shoot, O cruel pa!” But that pa, so ' cold and cruel, swore he’d send Bill to j that clime where there is no need of: fuel for to have a pleasant time. Then : 1 he raised his shooting-iron, raving!( much and swearing more, till the air ' was blue—but why run on thus telling j1 how he swore? What, oh, what w;ih ; William doing while thus raved the old - galoot? seeingpluinly what was brew- j' ing, he was likewise on the shoot. “Hold, rash pa!” exclaimed the j1 daughter; all unheeded were her cries, 1' as also the sweet salt water streaming from her lovely eyes. Standing there j in all the rigor, old man Brown now ' < aimed his gun, pausing ere ho pulled j the trigger, thinking maybe Bill would ran. B'l!, though, was not of the cat- r! tie which neither dare nor do; but once I shoved into a battle, he was sure to see ' it through. Never since the siege of 1 Ilium was suspense felt more profound;! I fm a moment more, and William had been made to bite the ground. • Quickly drawing his repeat or, which ' h. earrh 1 two or three, cocking it at 1 shortest meter, drew a bead on O. M. B. Few things as swift as lightning > are there. Swift thus came the pistol’s I roar, and poor Susan’s helpless father lay there weltering iu his gore! Wil- ; liana's sure, unerring bullet, sn infernal slug, no doubt, took 0. M. 15. in tbe j : gullet, and he waltzed right up the ! Spout. And the For-'icr, living nigli liim, Came, it William didn’t run, foehn-' sure they’ ! jnstifv him in the d-cd that helm! done; which th -y did; for pa p-.’s ftirr, Busan weeping told it o'er;, 1 and to Will:am ra d the jury, “Go my son and shoot no n-"*--- ” -o re niv rare must pause and tarry; J 1 all she knows is in this lay; whether:' Bid and Susan marry, sho is not pro- ; pared to say. But ns Bill, who is nn taker—with stock curds you under stan 1—in that lead; n gam.' of poker, pi iy, d affair and honest hand. Should he, when there are no traces] left of his unerring shot,meet Sue’s hand ] with but four ire's ha will no doubt take l the pot; for Sue knows her pa was able, j and had done it with a rnsh, with his : ’ full to sweep the table, had not William 1 held a flush. Ike Augusta Factory. The semi-annual meeting of this pros- * porous Georgia factory was he'd hist week. The report of the President ■ shows that the profits of the company ! luring the six months were a little over thirteen thousand dollars, from which la dividend of two per cent., was dc-j I dared. When the depressed condition ] iof the market f'-r cotton goods is taken j j into consideration, causing most other. i mil’s to either stop or run on short time, the result must bn considered as fur !ther proof that tbe South is the place: ; to profitably conduct cotton mills. The: ! surplus of the company’s production j : has been disposed of, and President ! .Inckson thinks the future is eneourng- | : ing. Most of its goods are now sold in j I advance. j The factory took during the six ' si.„ ... ic.fi, Titt k mi bales; employed over six hnndred hands, | i and sold its own goods to the amount of; $416,540; she made in the six months' | 416,001 vards of goods, chiefly adapted j to and intended for Southern consump- j ! tiou. The stockholders requested the di-1 J rectors of the corporation to look into j itho matter of salaries with n view to j I bringing them down to hard-pan. A, proposition was made to reduce the sal aries of the President and Superintend ent to four thousand dollars each, aud ; to be at ten per cent, in all other sa’a-1 ries, but the proposition was withdrawn ; with the understanding that voluntary j refine ms would bo conceded by the j office > themselves. T’--e latter part of the meeting was enlivened by a political discussion that wm both lively and amusing. Mr,. Walsh claimed that Mr. Cogin had at tempted to bulldoze the operatives of the cotton factory in the interest of cer tain local candidates. The stockhold ers finally resolved to strike out all per sonal allusions and to declare “that noi officer connected with this company has any right to exercise undue influence, much less arbitrary control, over the political rights of the workmen em ployed by this corporation, and that they bo left entirely free to exercise the elective franchise as they may seo prop er.”—Atlanta Constitution.

Cookin’ and preparin’ wood for cookin’ takes up a heap of time that ort by rights to be employed in the cotton patch. I was sayiu’ to my old woman the other day, if we Mississippi folks could get onr cookin’ and washin’ done up North and sent by express, we'd be as happy as office holders. ” “Your horse there in the lead seems to be lame.” “Yes, needs shoein’.

Perhaps I can at the depot.” “How or earth do yon manage to live in your parts, my old friend?” “Why, we raise cotton. My road turns off here, atrauger. Gee, Ball back, Brandy. I’m glad I seed yon, stranger.” An Englishman devised a trick that beats anything of Yankee invention in that line. He desired to be a physi cian, but had no education in medicine, and a diploma was uecessary. Bo he hired a needy physician to personate him before the examining board, an swer the questions, and get the diplo ma in bis name. The plan was suc cessful, but there was a subsequent ex posure, followed by arrest. A Day of Rest. Chateaubriand Bays that during the time of the Revolution the peasants of France were in the habit of saying: “Our oxen know when Sunday comes, and will not work on that day.” The >x cannot labor nine successive days, at the end of the sixth hia lowing seems to demand tho honrs marked by the Creator for the general rest of nature. Biancom, the Irish car proprietor, said that lie could work a horse eight miles a day six days in the week, better than lie could six miles a day for seven days in the week. By not working on Sun days he effected a saving of twelve per cent. This is in unison with the very remarkable testimony of Dr. Farro be fore a committee of the House of Com-1 mous. He said: “A physician is aux-| ions to preserve the balance of circula lion ns necessary to the restorative power of the body. The ordinary ex ertions of man run down the circulation every d ry of his life, and although the ! night apparently equalizes the circula- i tiou well, yet it does not sufficiently re- j store its balance for the attainment of u J long life. Hence,one day in seven by the ; bounty of Providence is tlirowu in as a i day of compensation to perfect by its | repoco the animal system. You may ; easily determine this question as a mat- ! ter of fact by trying it on beasts of bur den.” God has revealed Himself in this Divine arrangement of time in the same manner in which He has set the j night of reBt against the day of toil, j rounding the day bv a sleep, myster iously adjusting strength and time; so that we feel thankful and bless God j that the time of toil is not longer, feel- j ing that strength would not be equal i for a longer period—that we could not endure it. So He has exactly adjusted cilurt nfkvpnth -nnvtirm nf t.inift to rest. Kobespierre and Danton thought to diminish the resting days of man; but the experiment failed, and society broke down beneath the burden they imposed. ••If I Had Kept my Temper." •‘I never can keep anything,” cried Emma, almost stamping with vexation. “Somebody always tunes my things and loses them.” She had mislaid some of her sewing implements. “Ihere is oue thing," remarked mamma, ‘ that J think you might keep if you would try.," “I should like to t. epone tiling,” an swi red Emma. “Well, then, n.y dear," resumed j mamma, “keep pair temper; if you do j that, perhaps you will find it easy to j keep o her things. I dare say if you , iiu»i eMipio*. a _m>ui iioiu in •wiroinug ■ for the missing articles, you might have; f .nnd them before this time; but you, have not even looked for them.

Keep.your temper, my dear; when you have missed any article, keep your temper and 6eareh for it. You had better keep your temper, if yon lose all the little property you possess. So, my dear, I repeat, keep your tem per!” Emma subdued her ill-humor, search ed for the articles she had lost, nnd found them in her work-bag. “Why, mamma, here they arc! 1, might have been sewing all this time if I had kept my temper.” - --- Haul iu your Line! “Take no thought for the morrow;" that is, no anxious, fretful thought.

In consequence, they are not able to manage tbeir tackle at all; but aro pulled after it, stumbling first into this hole, and thea into that; slipping up here, and slipping down there, struggling and splashing about in far moro distressed fashion than the fish at the other end of the line—and, as a general thing, there is no fish thera. Haul in your line! -- m - Love and be Happy. It is the easiest thing in the world to be happy, if men and women could oils ly think so. Happiness is only anoth er name for love, for where love exists in a household there happiness must also exist, even if it has poverty forita close companion; where love exists not, even though it be iu a palace,happiness can never come. He was a cold and selfish being who originated the say ing that "when poverty comes in at the door, love flies out at the window;” and his assertion proves conclusively ttiat he had no knowledge of love, for unquestionably the reverse of the axiom quoted is nearer the truth. When poverty comes in at the door, love—true love—is more than ever in clined to tarry, and do battle with the enemy. Let those who imagine them selves miserable, before they find fault with tlieir surroundings,, search in their hearts for the oause. A few kind words, a little forbearance, or n kiss, will often open the way to a flood of sunshine in a house durkened by the clouds of discord and nfiamiability. | jgmktovtM gtd[ft*.

Fat is an oily matter, itself un endowed with life or sensibility,contain ed iu cells, ns honey is within the honey-comb, which are vital, and so en dowed that they lose the Jpower either of adding to.or taking from the quantity of oily matter at any time existing, fhe use of fat is to fill up crevices in the body, facilitate the movements of parts oue upon auother, and serve as a sort of internal nutriment, in care the animal should be in a situation where he cau not obtain food; but, when it accumulates, instead of facilitating tho motions of parts it clogs and impedes them, and becomes, from its collected amount of freight, a burden to the body. A fat horse is not only unfit to go, bnt really has a weight within himself to carry which the hone in con dition for work has been disencumber ed of. A fat horse will not bear the loss of blood tiie same as a horse in a working state of body; tbe one will faint from the abstraction of a quantity which the other will stand without being affected. Plumpness, which .- • 6 4 4 •oiiuiu <*VIU iiiim.o.-', JO iv/W W WU' vey to the eyes of the inexperienced the impression of strength and ability to go to work, whereas it ought, wo re peat, be taken ns a proof to tLe contra ry. When a buyer enters a dealer’s yard to buy a horse, every horse shown him most likely—certainly every horse four or five years old—is fat, and, therefore, not in condition for work. Dealers—by quantities of grain aud sometimes by means of poisonous nos trums and by giving their horses only snoh little wulking exercise as serves to keep their legs from swelling—make the horses they have for sale as fat as they can, and for two reasons. First, fat fills np the crevices and conoeals any imperfections there may be of out ward form. It is the horse dealer’s putty; by it, like the coach-maker or the furniture-maker, he makes his ar ticle for sale appear more perfect or freer from defect than it really is. Se condly. by it he gives an appearance of sizo and bulk to the article which pass es for sign of strength and ability but which, rs we said before, is in reality a condition of weakness. Fanning Notes. Do not neglect to sow peas on a few worn Spots in your corn and cotton fields this year, to plow under, just for an experiment. A few hours’ work may bring you to a determination, when yon see the result, that will start you on the ro id to fortune. The way to have fine vnluable stock is to taka care of it nnd treat it with humanity. Farmers must become more careful aud thorough in all their work. It does not pay to neglect pro vision for the comfort of stock,becanse, perchance it may live through such treatment. Possibly it would improve tinder a different treatment. Among the avocations suitable for young boys is the rearing and care of poultry. The love of pets is universal among children; and in the whole range of our domestio animals there are no pets so generally adapted to city, town or country, ns domestic fowls. Nor are there any that furnish greater pleasure to fortunate owners; for besides their handsome appearance, there is the daily gathering of the eggs—a source of unfailing pleasure. Among jobs to be performed at wet times in the spring, that of getting out summer wood is not the least impor tant. It is very essential to have plen ty of good seasoned wood for the kitch en in summer. Farmers are apt to leave the cook to prepare dinner with such material as she can pick up,or else she is put off with green wood to get along as best she can. When summer ar rives and work is pushing there will be no time to lose in getting wood. Do it now, and you will save your own time, and the time, fatigue, and patience of the cook, and get better dinners into the bargain. How to Increase the Flow of Milk. **■ • --O from Arkansas gives us the following excellent recipe to inorease the flow of milk in a cow, and wo can heartily en dorse it, for we have seen it tried. She says: "Tepid water slightly salted given twice a day will inorease the flow of milk one third; if the cow will not drink it at first trial scatter a handful of bran or meal over the top of it. They soon beoome very fond of it, and will drink all you give them. I tried this plan three years ago with perfect success. I had only one cow, and she was of the com mom scrub stock of the country, and after she began to drink the water, prepared as above, she fur nished me twice a day two ordinary water buckets full of milk, and by feed ing a little corn boiled with cotton seed the milk yielded butter enough to sup ply my table bountifully and have a few pounds to sell every week. I gave her three gallons of water twice s day.” — Ex. An Apple Meringue. This is s delicate, quite showy dish, easy to make, and good when it is done-. It needs good apples, that is, those , with a sprightly flavor; pare, quarter, | and remove the cores; stew in a bright ; tin or enameled sauce pan,. with sugar I to taste, and a little oinnaroon; as soon as tho apples are done through, having kept the quarters as whole »s possible, tnrn them into a pudding-dish, being careful not to break them up. While the apples are cooking, get the mer ingue (prononuce it always in ee-rang) ready. Fpr a moderate sized dish, ueo the whites of four eggs, beaten to a firm froth, (our ounces of sugar, and flavor with lemon; spread this over the apples in the dish, set the dish in the oven, and bake until the surface is well and evenly browned. Serve hot for desaeit, but some prefer to let ft get old and eat it wifh-Crwim.
