To bear in all your after fute u fond a faith ful part; And. tell me, have I ever tried that duty to forego— Or pitied there wag not Joy for roe when you were sunk In woe; No ; I would rather share your tear tliun any other's Klee For thoiiKh jou’re nothing to the world, ] you're uil the world to me Yon made a palace of my cot, this rough liewn bench a throne; There's sunlight for me in your smiles, and music In your tone. I look upon you wlu-n you sleep, my eyes with tears Krow dim; I cry, *t>h, Parent of the poor, look down from heaven on him; Rehoid hint toll from day to day, exhaust - In* strength and soul Oh. look with mercy on iiliu, Ix>rd, for Thou const tuuke him whole." And when lust relieving sleep has on iny eyelids smiled. How oft ute they forbade to close In slum her by our child! I take the little murmurer that spoils my ► pan of rest. And fed It ns a part of thee I lull upon my breast. There’s only one return 1 crave; I may not need it long. And It may soothe tliee when lTn where the wretched feel no wrong; I uak not for a kinder tone, for thou wert ever kind; I for not less frugal fare, my faro Ido ' not mind; I ask not for attire more gay—lf such as 1 have got suffice to make tne fair to thee, for more I murmur not; lb.' i w <>i.l*l some share of hours that }uu on club* be-tow. Of knowledge which you prize so much, nmy I not something know? Subtract from meetings among meu each 1 eve an hour for me; I Make me companion ot your soul, as I may safely be. If yon will read I'll sit and work, then think , when you're away; Less tedious 1 Blmll find the time, dear William, of your stay < .V meet companion soon I’ll be for e’en our studious hours, A.id teacher of those little ones you call your cottage flowers, And If We be not rich and greut, we may be wiie and kind; And hh my heart cun warm your heart, so , may uiy mind your mind. -Kx. WHAT IS GOOD. "What is tlio real good?"

"You are a very able man,” said NapOieon, “and probably have a great career before you. Hut per mit me to give you one word of ad vice— let God alone!” There is a respectful and a blatant way of ex pressing oncV disbelief; and much j ;ih people may enjov one who enter tains them by ridiculing religion and a belief in the Deity, he who in dulges in it throws away his influ enec.

The projectors of the Bob Creek ditch will locale a gigantic reservoir upon the line of the canal twenty miles north of Las Animas.

Ymi never have heard of cologne drunk < irds, then. Well, that woman is a ; cologne drunkard, and one of tin- 1 worst of them. too. She huvs from one to two d< zen of thuse long rdim ••oilles of 471 I cologne evei v week. ■nd she takes u entirely herself.” “How does >he take it?” “As a tele on lumps of sugar, at least I suppose she does, for that is i the usual custom of cologne takers. ! They saturate a number of lumps of ' sugar with the fluid and carry them shout with them Wlu-n (as is the case with whisk-v drunkard) tliev fe»*| as if they needed a drink they 1 will take one or two lumps of sugar and. letting it dissolve in the mouth, 1 they will get a sort of an imitation of perfumed whiskey and sugar and water. You know, of sour.*e, that the base of the cologne is alcolol, and for most people alcohol is alto gether too strong to be taken raw. and this is one of the reasons wh\ the sugar is Used. “Another reason, I suppose, is be cause it is ea-itr to carry about, and can be taken without detection when on the s igar. Some of the cologne users, and there are a great many, can drink their liquid raw, and those who have arrived at that stage can ’rink pure alcohol or almo'i any thing else, except perhaps, sulahuric or some kindred acid.” “Are many men addicted to the habit?” was asked. “No, I have never heard of a single case of a man taking cologno, bui there are many women who make » regular practice of it, and a great many of the drug stores have regular customers whom they supply with different brands of cologne aud per fume. By far greater portion of them, however, use this 4711. which i~ made in Germany and lias a fra grant. refreshing odor, “I have sat in a theater many a night and watched elegantly dressed ladies, whose husbands had perhaps gone out between acts, slyly open their reticules and extract the sweet smelling cubes of sugar After sev eral of these had b«cn dissolved the lady would have what the hoys called a ’still* on, that is. she would be sort of quietly drunk, and her husband, who had been out several times him self ‘to see a man,’ would never no tice it, as his own libations had dull ed Ins senses a bit.

A hill will bo introduced in the Now York legislature exempting ed itors, newspaper correspondent* and 1 reporters of newspapers from liabil ity to jury service when engaged in the work of their calling. The law contemplated by this bill ought to ! be e.iaeted in every state in the Union. The character of the etn- « nloyment. of newspaper men does not < as a rule admit of their engaging substitutes. They often are com- ' pulled to act upon a moment’s notice, ; and in such cases their work cannot like that of a husines man, be post- ■ polled. Newspaper men serve the ! public well enough when they dis charge their regular duties well, ( without being subject to service up- ( on juries.—Denver Republican.
