m
Mrs. Arp Says She Is Willing To
(live a Dollar If Bill Will Work
It Out.
Come now, let's divide out. There
Yte : <) good working days in itie year.
Suppose we ea.ll one of them orphans'
lay. We have a Labor Day and \Va.-:hngton's
birthday and independence
my ana other days sot apart for observance,
why not have a day for the
orphans of l-lcorgia? The orphanage
it Decatur is in groat need and the
<ood men in charge have askea the
people to give, the 23th day of this
month to their service, the labor and
earnings of one day. What hotter can
wo do with it? Madam DeStael said
lhat our hank account in heaven would
be made up of the money we gave away
in charity while we lived upon tno
jarth. Huntington died worth $50.300,000.
tint lie could not take it with
him. and it is feared that lie will have
<i very small bank account up yonder.
He could have endowed a hundred orprimages
and had plenty left for his
kindred. Surely wo can all give
-something on that day. 1 am going to
give fl'. Mr. Crumley shan't shake his
Methodist locks at mo. "lie that
giveth to the poor lendeth to the
lA?rd." "And now, if you like the
security down with the dust." as the
old Scotch preacher said when ho sent
around the hat for chairty. The word
fatherless means an orphan?a child
bereft of a protecting parent, either
father or mother, or both. The word
mother less is not in the Bible, but the
word fatherless includes it, and it is
found in the scriptures thirty-eight
times, and is always coupled with a
reward to those who befriend the orphan.
or some calamity upon those
who oppress them. Job says. 'If 1
have lifted my baud against the fatherless,
may mine arm from my shoulder
blade," and St. James says, "i'uro
religion is to visit the fatherless and
ilie widow in their affliction.' Good
friends, it will not do to say you have
never wronged the orphans. Neglect
of them is a wrong. If nobody gave
what would become of them? Everybody
ought to give?give according to
your purse?gi\e as the Lord hath
blessed you. It is a peril not to give.
St. Peter keeps the books, and I want
him to tind my name on them with a
good hank account attached.
I had a funny conference with my
wife, about this. She says she will
give a dollar if I will work it out.
"What do you want me to do?" said 1.
"The window cord is broken," she
said, "and the sideboaru lock is out of
order, and the longhandlod broom that
i brush down the spider webs with is
worn out and needs another broom on
it." "Is that all?" suid 1. "Oh! 110.
The hall papering is pealing oft and
needs repaying, and there is a leak in
the roof over the dining room." "Is
that all?" said I. "Well, you ran
fini-h the day sifting the ashes and
putting some around the rose hushes.
Mr. Iierch>mans's book says that ashes
are a good fertilizer for the roses." 1
pondered awhile and then ventured to
auk where she was going to get the
dollar to pay me. "Why, from you of
course," she said. "Where did you expect
me to get it? Didn't I give vou
everything 1 had, and didn't you promise
to Rive me everything you had?
Didn't you say, 'With all my worldly
goods ? thee endow?' What's mine is
mine and what's yours is mine, too.
according to that." "But my dear,"
said 1, "haven't I supported you and
maintained you for all these years and
responded to every want and wish 1 ,
could?" "Why, yes, of course you
have; hut if a wife was to keep accounts
with her husband she would
bring him in debt every time. Board
and clothing don't pay ior nursing and
night watching and sewing and darning
and housekeeping and raising up
ten children through infancy and
childhood, and doctoring measles and
whooping cough and boils and colic,
etc. 1 made a thousand little garments
for them with my needle before
, there was ever a sewing machine invented."
"Yes," said 1. "I remember,
and you mudo your own clothes amt
my shirts? my plaited bosom shirts,
with pearl buttons?yes, 1 remember,
1 can't find any ius good now." Then
she remarked: "You couldn't get a
good housekeeper for less than SKK1
per year, could you? And that would
make over $T(,00Q, and the Interest < o nponnded
woa.d make five times aa
much more that you owe me. and you
ask me where I am going ?Q KOt Hie
dollar." "But, hold on, dear," said*.,
"you forgot that I had to support and
educate your ten children?you alw.ivs
call them yours?and that old Abe
Lincoln set all your 'niggers' free, and
that the war broke me all up and I've
had to scuffle for a living ever Hnro,

?isk for it and keep you in cologne and
camphor and liver medicine nnd missionary
money and little presents for
the children and grandchildren on
their birthdays. Didn't I give you tw#
dollars last week to buy amber beads
for Mary' Lou. When the cook quite
or gets slc.k, don't I get up and make
a fire and cook the breakfast nnd move
around on tiptoe to keep from weaking
you?and?and?and?haven't J
made you a marble chip walk to tbc
street for your number a shoes to
walk on?" "Is that all." said my
wife, and she laughed at me and said?
"Oh, you know I was just joking. I
know that you have done the. best, you
could. I wouldn't swap you off for
anybdy. Now go and tes if you can't
climb that new ladder you made yesterday
and get some squabs for supper
to-night. There mrst be a dozen or
more up there, and the girls have invited
company 'to tea." Ladders and
squabs! Well. 1 tried the new ladder.
It %is fourteen feet long and reaches up
to the gable end of the smokehouse,
where the pigeors live, and by the
time 1 got nearly r.Mthin reach I didn't
know whether my head was swimming
or the ladder careening, and I just shut
my eyes and slul down with alacrity,
like 11 fireman, and liked to have had a
fit ofnervous prostration, and my wife
Just laughed at me when 1 told her I
am the boy, and -ho hasn't yet realized
that I am growing old. I go 10
the butcher's and the baker's and the
postoflleo and dig the potatoes and
hunt up chickens and eggs and bring
her fresh rose-; every morning and look
after the little grandchildren while she
takes her evening nap. 1 have a lot
of letters to an wer every day. and before
I ran finir.li one somebody wantlooiething
dono, and when night emits
I am us tired as an old dray horse. We
used to l>? rich, but now we are as
poor as Lazarus. Hut still we put on
ills and keep open house Just like we
lid before the war, and our daily visi.ors
have to tie entertained and 1 niu-t
help do it. A stranger tvmo the other
day while 1 was working the roselioda
and hud charge of two little grand- !
children and my wife was napping. Ho !
took a scat on a bench and said lie
mine to see me about lying ?the sin of
lying. This alarmed me for a moment.
Then lie said that 1 was the
writer for the pres-s and had influence,
mil li?> w.-uiteit tm? ti? liein him reform
the world about lying. And he told
me how the pollt riaiis lied and the
newspapers lied and the mer. h ints
lie i and made their clerks to lie and
dicoivo .heir customers and how the
lawyeio lied in the court house t > d" ei\e
tin* jury, and some of the preachers
had got to lying and inak ng up
sensational stories in the pulpit. He
was well nested and iiuoicd criiiture !
and tulkeil in a stream until 1 got tired
of his abstractions. Tin 11 he asked n.n
if a lie or a deception wn- justifiable
under any circumstances. I replied
that there were some while How or deceptions
that 1 thought were admissible
under certain circumstance . lie
looked surprised and asked me to give
him an instance or example. Wei:,
paid I. a woman culled on my wife yesterday
while she was in the kitchen
putting up peach pickles. Tills old
woman was a long setting hen and my
wife got Vt ry tired of her, and at last
when she rose to leave, my wife said:
"Can't, you sit longer? Why are you
in su h a hurry? Well, do cull again
noon?I'm sorry you can't sit longer."'
The stranger spoke abruptly and sa d:
"Your wife deceived her and did wrong
?she ought to have told her that she
van llllRV 21 T1 r 1 rniut Im ovidiaml Ihm'f
you think so?" Well, row. s?i<l 1, let
me put another case. You came here
and found me hard at work with my
coat off and I had two little children
to watch, for my wife to'd mo not to
let them get out of my sight. and now
they have gone. I must hunt them up.
and I've listened to your abstraction.;
for half un hour and all to no practical
purpose, suppose 1 should -;ay to
you, my friend, you will have to excuse
me; I must look after the children
and work my garden, and I re Icon
you had better go. What would
you think of mo and my rudenfss?He
looked surprised and grieved ar.d said.
"I)o you mean it?" No. said I. and if
1 did, it would he very impolite for nm
to tell you so. 1 had rather tell a little
white lie hadn't you? He wa silent.
for a minute, and then siid: "Well,
I reckon 1 had better go." and he Initio
me an affectionate goodby.
But let us not forget the orphans
nor the day. There is no lie about
that. Sometimes I feel like an orphan
myself and wish my father and mother
were here to comfort me. i reckon
that is a sign of second childhood.
Now I have a labor of love before
me. I shall compile that hook of poems
and I want help. Kind friends have
sent me 222 copirs of the poem I asked
lor aiul it will please me and lielp mo
to have the lovers of Rood, pure poetic
literature send to me. the titles of. say,
five or more of their favorites, and also
