H' DR. BCHESICK'S STANDARD RBTI- The standard remedies for all dieenses of the lnngs are SCHESCK'S PULMONIC SYRUP, SC'-ENCK'S SBA WEED TONIC, and SCHENCK'8 MANDRAKE PILLS, and if taken before the lungs are destroyed, a speedy care is affected. . , . , To these three medicines lit. j. a. ncnenca oi Philadelnbia owes his nnrivslled success in the treatment ol pulmonary diseases. The rnlmonic oyrup npens tne morma matter iu the longs ; natnre'throws it off by an easy expec tation, for when the phlegm or matter is ripe a slight coogh will throw it off. the patient has rest and the lnngs begin to heal. To enable the Pulmonic Syrnp to do this, Rchenck's Mandrake Pills and Bchenck's Sea Weed Tonic must be freely n-ed to cleanse the stomach and .iver. ScheDck's Mandrake Pills act upon the liver, removing all obstmc1 ions, re lax the gsll bladders, the bile starts freely and the liver is soon relieved. Schenck's Sea Weed Tonic Is a gentle stimnlsnt and alterative. Tbe alkali of which it is com posed mixes with the food and prevents soaring. It assists digestion by toning np the stomach to a healthy condition, so that the food and Polmonic Syrup will make good blood; then the lnngs will heal, and the patient will sorely get well if care is taken to prevent fresn cold. All who wish to consult Dr. Schenck, either personally or by 1. tter can do so at hit principal office corner Sixth and Arch streets, Philadel phia, every Monday. 1. . mA;lnM .m aiM tiv all n-nrrtrlRtS DVUCIII,.

Strikes at the root of disease by purifying the blood, restoring the liver and kidneys to heal:hy action, and invigorating the nervous system. Vegetine Is not a vile, nauseous compound, which simply purges the bowels, but a safe pleasant remedy which is sore to purify the blood, and thereby re store tbe health. Vegetine Is now prescribed tn cases of Scrofula and other diseaseses of the blood, by many of the best phy sicians, owing to Its great success in caring dis eases of this nature. . Vegetine Does not deceive invalids into false hopes by purg ing sad creating a fictitious appetite, but assists nature in clearing and purifying the whole sys tem, leading the patient gradually to perfect health. Vegetine Was looked upon as an experiment for some time by some of oar beet physicians, but those most incredulous to regard to Its merit are now its most ardent friends and supporters. Vegetine Says a Boston druggist, "has no equal as a blood purifier. Hearing of its many wonderful cures after all other remedies had failed.I visited tbe la boratory and convinced mvseltof its genuine Trer- It. It is prepared from barks. root and herbs, each of which is highly effective, and they are compound ed in such a manner as to produce astonishing re- salts." Vegetine. . Is acknowledged and recommended by phyicisns and apothecaries to be the best purifier and clean ser of blood yet discovered, and thousands speaa in its praise - who have been restored to health. pnoo-f "What is Needed..

He stood within the doorway, This nephew nice, of mine, With eves as blue and tranquil As skies in summer time; But storms do quickly gather There swept across his face A shade of childish feeling, 1 eould bat pause to trace. His bands sought deep his pockets, And taller grew his form, His manner seemed to indicate "A calm before a storm ;" The flash from his eye was perfect, As at last he deigned to say: "Auntie, grand-ma has sued me My grand-ma o'er the way!" Then swift produced the paper ' To prove the solemn fact I could not help from smiling, But covered it with tact, And glanced the writing over, And pondered o'er the news As long as MasUr-five-year-old "- Would allow me thus to muse. The result of mj reflections Was this, and simply this. That when my nephew's grand-mamma A young and lively miss Had to" her lover's wooing. Frankly given heart and hand, And like other maidens fancied The future fairy land; If some fairy's wand had shown her The present state of things, Or to heriinmagination Lent his own immortal wings. Would she not have felt indignant At the lady there herseif Who could sue her only grand-child, For sordid gain and pelf ? Ah! time works many changes, With the body and the mind; The little child upon the green, As sportive as tbe wind, Congenial to his playmates, Blythe and happy in his play Would yon know him in the old man, That vexes every day? Shattered health and blighted prospects May hare helped to make him so; How near like him, time may bring us, None of us may ever know; Much of wrong and much of sorrow, Finding false those deemed most true, .May have slowly wrought the changes That so often meet our view. Thinking of one's self, exclusive, Noting not another's joys, Caring not for other's sorrows, Treasuring up what e'er annoys; Likewise will transform our natures. From youth's fountain, pure and free, To the turbid pools, inactive, In some muddy lane we see. Fet some lives are ever noble: Self-denial day by day, Working for the good of others, As they journey on their way, Keeps the fountain of their life-time Ever glad and free and strong, Like the fruit that's fully ripened, Or the sweetest strain of song. Special Dispatch to the Leader. PARTING OVATION. GOV. HAYES' DEPARTURE. A Gala Day—Thousands Follow the Governor to the Depot—The Air Filled With Music and Cheer—A Speech From the Car Platform. Columbus, March 1. At noon to day, Governor Hayes and family left for Washington by way of the Pan Handle route, in the private car of President Scott of the Pennsyl vania railway. Among the promi nent gentlemen who accompanied the party were ex-Governor Noyes and General Mitchell of Columbus. Representatives of the New York limes, Iribune, Herald, and Cin cinnati Enquirer and Times were al so on the tram. The occasion was embraced by the citizens of Colum bus to tender another ovation, hard ly second to the one of Wednesday afternoon and evening. All the rorenoon crowds of people thronged in front of the family man sion, on liroad street, even hums the north side of the State House yard, which it overlooks. At eleven o'clock the crowd was so large that the street was completely blocked up. At half -past eleven the Colum bus cadets and cadets from the Ag ricultural College arrived, headed by a fine band, the latter marching up to the tune of "Hold the Fort." At twelve o'clock the Governor left the house and entered the carriage in waiting, then making the first step upon tbe trip that was to land him in the White House. As he stepped into his carriage, which was drawn by two white horses, a deafening storm of cheers filled the air, mingled with the mu sic of the band to the tune of "Hail to the Chief," while on every hand innumerable handkerchiefs waved and fluttered from the fair hands of ladies of every social standing who had come to bid the distinguished family farewell. The line of march was taken up by the band leading, then the Agricultural College ca dets, followed by the carriage con-i taming tbe President-elect and fam ily, and others containing the fami ly servants, and last the Columbus cadeis. If tbe first appearance of the Governor was an ovation the march down High street to the de pot was more so. Flags were flying from every available place, while windows were up and filled with those who desired to get a parting glance at Ohio's favorite son. Cheer after cheer arose all along the route by the multitudes who fill ed the street, sidewalks and build ings. "There he goes," "God bless him," and like phrases were heard on every hand. It was like one general holiday. At the depot an other crowd was in waiting," which, when augmented by those who went down with the procession, must have numbered six or seven thousand. Upon reaching the platform of the car, turning to the crowd Governor Hayes made a short speech, as fol lows: My Fellow-Citizens; I appear to say a few words in bidding good bye to you. I understand verv well the uncertainty of publio affairs at Washington. I understand very well that possibly next week I may be with you again to resume my place in the Governor's office and as your fellow-citizen, but I also under stand that it is my duty to be at Washington prepared to assume an other position, higher and more re sponsible, and with more difficult duties. I have thought as I looked upon this audience, and as to-cfay I gazed upon the people who throng ed our route to the depot, of a simi lar occurrence sixteen years ago. A little less than sixteen years ago, with a thousand men, I marched down High street to pass to the East aod South to do what we could to restore the Union of the States, and to re-establish the authority of the Constitution. Cheers. In that work we were successful, so far as was possible to be successful by force of arms. I am not here to say a word in disparagement of what was accomplished by the brave men who went out with me from differ ent parts of the country. Of my comrades one-third and over never returned to their homes. They per ished in the discharge of their duties that the Republic might live. But there was something force could not do. We would have our union to be a nnion of hearts, and we would hate our Constitution obeyed, not merely because of force that compels obedience, but obeyed because the people love the principles of the Constitution. Long continued ap- plause.J Ana to-day if 1 am called to the work which Abraham Lincoln 11 1 a was canea sixteen years ago, it is under brighter skies and more favor able auspices. Applause.! I do hope, I do fervently believe, that by tne aid or uivine rroviaence we may do something in this day of peace by works of peace towards re establishing in tbe hearts ot our countrymen a real, a hearty attach ment to the Constitution as it is, to the Union as it is. Long-continued applause, which was only stopped by the approach of a locomotive which moved slowly down to take the cars away. Of course a resump tion of the remarks was impossible, and as the train moved away the air was rent with shouts which the Gov ernor acknowledged by bowing. As the train emerged from the depot a number of locomotives on the side tracks drowned the voices of the multitude in resounding toots, cer tainly a good-by sufficiently hearty. lhe train left the depot at a few minutes after one o'clock amid the cheers of the crowd, the screaming of locomotive whistles, the waving of handkerchiefs, and music by the band of "Auld Lang byne." He did not tender his resignation as was expected, but will do that when it is definitely settled that he will occupy the Presidential office by the declaration of the vote of all the States. Some Curiosities of the New York Aquarium. Facing about.the visitor finds him self at the portals of an enchanted highway, a veritable lane in the sea, along the sides of which are the so- called table tanks." On the left are those devoted to the smaller fresh water varieties whose forms would be lost in the broader domains of the wall tanks, while across the lane is a continuation in miniature of the grand marine series. Keeping to the right, we are baited at the outset to inspect the troop of sea-horses, to whom, as bents their martial bear ing, the right of the line has been as signed. Horse's heads they surely have, and those quivering fans will answer well for manes, but here the semblance ceases, as the tail is that of an ape and the body that of a fish. The fancy might soon be taught to believe these hippocampi fresh from the well groomed stables of some sea-nymph who may yet be deploring the capture of her favorite chargers. Possibly these were the mam stay of a race of fairy amazons, whose duty it was to serve as body guards or couriers to their queen. If this be so, then a rich reward is promised by the manager to the lucky fisherman who will capture the queen herself or any of her com pany. Before a second tank we could stand for hours watching the cun ning or vain spider-crabs decorate their ugly shapes with plumes of sea weed, and then concealed in a grove of their own planting, lie watching the angular antics of the scollop, winch in turn are seeking to evade the hungry claws of a ravenous crab. Another advance brings us in front of itn algae-carpeted cage the home of the beautiful winged gurnard and his hideous prison comrade, the ugly toad-fish. Was it an artistic appre ciation of the force of contrast, or was it some almost human-decree of fate that made these two opposite tvpes one of grace and one of ug- liuess companions in captivity? W e next come to a veritable sea- garden, where anemones of all shades and sizes grow and blossom. That they are animals, science no longer' doubts; yet the precincts of a tropi cal garden cannot rival in the beau ty of its blossoms the display here given; rich red, yellow and purple blossoms in streaks ot deeper hue, delicate petals surrounding a mass of softest velvet. Flowers they seem to be, yet they are conscious, living organisms, as is proved by the char acteristic habit of one of the class, who has taken his abode upon the shell of a hermit-crab. However, the crab is only paying the penalty of his robber propensity, since the shell in which he is housed is not of his own making. So accustomed have these combative marauders be come to their living burden that when they see fit to change from one shell to another, they have been known to carefully detach the ane mone and transfer him to the root of the new domicile a tender atten tion which the recipient repays by conveying to the crab an additional supply of food through the agency of its current- tentacles.

" " boys of a whole city are out in kite time, there is more rausio la the air than is delightful. The real hawks and crows, and other birds, give these buzzing counterfeits of them selves a wide berth. In mv walks, I often was deceived when looking up, unable to tell at first whether tne moving black spot in the air were paper, or a real, living creature, with beak, claws, and feathers. The Japanese boys understand wen now to send "messengers to the top of the kite, and how to en tangle each other's kites. When they wish to, they can cut their ri val's string and send the proud prize fluttering to the ground. To do this, they take about ten feet of string near the end, dip it in glue and then into bits of powdered glass, making a multitude of tiny blades as sharp as a razor, and looking, when magnified, like the top of a wail in wnicn broken Dottles nave been set to keep off climbers. When two parties of boys agree to have a paper war near the clouds, they raise-their kites and then attempt to cross the strings. The most skillful boy saws off, with his glass saw, the cord of his antagonist. The usual size of a kite in Japan is two feet square, but often four feet; and I have seen many that were six feet high. Of course, such a kite needs very heavy cord, which is carried in a basket or on a big stick. They require a man, or a very strong boy, to raise them; and woe betide tbe small urchin who at tempts to hold one in a stiff breeze! The humming monster in the air will drag him off his feet, pull him over the street, or into the ditch, be fore he knows it. Tie such a kite to a dog's tail, and no Japanese canine could eveu turn round to bite the string. " If the Government allowed it, boys and young men would make kites as large as an elephant. St. Nicholas. Hayes and Tilden. Never, perhaps, since the origin of the government, has there been such a striking contrast between ri val candidates for tbe Presidency as between Hayes and Tilden. They represent two opposite types of po litical training. Each is the imper sonation of the distinct methods or forces employed or at work in Amer ican politics since parties began to exist. Hayes is all candor and openness; Tilden is all cunning and conceal ment.. The former does directly and in the light of day what conscience commands; the latter, by indirection and stealth, what interest prompts. Tilden's methods of secrecy and de ception never permit him to make known his real thoughts; Hayes frankness never suffers him to make known anything else. The one ut ters aloud and in the presence of others his opinions on all proper sub jects of discussion; the other confi dentially, in whispers, and ' with many an aside, evasively insinuates what may be interpreted to suit the exigencies of the times. The one aims to be what he seems; the other strives to seem what he is not. The methods of action of the two men are as opposite as their princi ples. Hayes believes that a sense of right and a love of justice sways the majority of mankind? and hence that to control them we must convince ther reason. Tilden assumes that interest and passion moye the major ity, that money is the great motor, trickery the engine, deception the tender, and hatred and malice the fuel that propel the popular engine; Hence the unprecedented expendi ture of money by a presidential canf date, the evasiveness of his public utterances, the cipher dispatches, the secret agents traveling under asj sumed names, the attempts at bribe ry, and the fanning the fast dying out fires of civil strife. The election eering methods of Tilden receivi further illustration from the ballot box frauds of 1868, for which he was held personally responsible by men of character and standing. Hayes' method of electioneering is to live an upright private and public life, to think and act up to the best light and thought of to-day, to build up the best character that he can, and let that and his deeds plead his cnuse. lnis tuetnoa ot nonor ana truth renders unnecessary cipher telegrams, secret circulars or confer ences, many-named agents, money in barrels, or on draft, or appeals to the lingering disloyalty of the land. In the course of these two candi dates we have had a fair test of the comparative worth of honesty and craft in a contest for the Presidency, Craft will gain points at the outset; honesty will gain honors and rewards at the end. Craft may be so cun ning as to deceive for a time the very elect; honesty ' cannot be so guileless as to give the victor s crown to any but the veritably electi ed. Craft crops out too much and too soon to mislead the wary. Hon esty bears fruit in time to make known to the wise the quality of the tree. Craft seldom wins success in the present and never in the fu ture. Uprightness generally attains the highest success, and what is bet ter, always deserves it. The machi nations of Tilden, tbe politician, have not proved a match for tne simple adherence to duty of Hayes, the un- selnsn soiaier in upnguu vnmou. Let aspiring men learn this easy, though paradoxical lesson that the way to reach the Presidency is nev er to seek it; and the way to lose it is to scheme and plot for it, after the manner of the trading politicians. N. Y. Times. Rear Admiral Wilkes. T?oar Admiral Oharles Wilkes, wh.i rlin.l in Washington (T. C.) early Thursday morning, February 8th, was born in New York in 1801, id was, therefore, aoout neveuty r vro.t-a f mre. He was distin guished for professional ability, sci- itino acquireiueiiiH, sim uivu honor. He was appointed a mid inman in 1816, and served on the Mediterranean station in 1819-20 nd in tbe Pacific in 1821-23. in 826 he was commissioned as Lieu tenant. He was appointed to the department of charts and instru ments in 1830, and was tne nrst in the United States to set up and ob serve with fixed astronomical instru ments. On August; 18th, 1838, he sailed from Norfolk, Virginia,, in oommand of a squadron of five ves- sels and a store-ship, to explore the southern seas. He visited Madeira, the Cape Verd Islands, Rio de Jane iro, Terra del Fuego, Valparaiso, Calloa, the Paumotou group, (Vhich he surveyed and explored), Wallis Island, and Sydney in New South Wales. He left Sydney in Decem ber 1839, and made important dis coveries in the antarctic regions. In 1840 he thoroughly explored the Feejee group, and visited the Ha waiian Islands, where he measured the pendulum on the summit of Manna Loa. In 1841 he visited the northwest coast of America and the Columbia and Sacramento Rivers, and on November 1st. set sail from San Francisco, visited Manila, Soo loo, Borneo, Singapore, the Cape of Good Hope, and St. Helena, and cast anchor at New York on June 10th, 1842. Charges preferred against him by some of his officers was investigated by a court martial, and he was acquitted of all except illegally punishing some of his crew, for which he was reprimanded. He was made a commander in 1843. He published "Narrative of the United States Exploring Expedition, 1838 42" (6 vols. 4to, also 5 vols. 8vo, New York, 1851.) Of the re maining eleven volumes, giving the scientific results of the expedition, he was author of that on meteorol ogy. In 1849 he published "West ern America, including California and Oregon" (8vo, Philadelphia), and in 1856 his "Theory of the Winds" (8vo, New York.) He was made a captain in 1855. In 1861 he was sent to the West Indies in Con federate steamer Sumter; and on November 8th he took forcibly from the British mail steamer Trent, in the Bahama channel, Messrs. Slidell and Mason, Commissioners of the Confederate States to France and England, and conveyed them to Boston. For this action he received a vote of thanks from Congress; but his course was finally disap proved by the President, and the -i , a a. commissioners were surrenaerea w England. In 1862 he was commis stoned as Commodore and placed first on the list. VV bile in command of the flotilla in James River he shelled and destroyed City Point on August 28. In 1863 he commanded a special squadron in the West Indies, aud captured many blockade runners. He was Commissioned as Rear Admiral on the retired list July 25, 1866. Chased by Wolves. In the year 1868, one cold Win ter's night, I was on a visit to a friend, in the northern part of Maine, when it was proposed to go out skating on the river, which ran very near the house. The night was clear and cloudless, and the wind was extremely cold, but it was just the kind of a night to enjoy oneself. 1 was voung and tearless, ana a good skater, and I started off, leav ing my friends to follow me. As 1 went along close to tne nan of the river, I heard a sound which seemed to come from the ice be neath my feet. It was low and tremulous at first, but it ended in a prolonged howl. Never before had such a noise come to my ears. Presently I heard the brushwood on the shore crack, as though from the tread of some animal, and on looking around for the cause of the noise, I sav? several dark objects moving along the bank of the river, and keeping pace with me. By their short yells and great speed, I knew at once that these were the much-dreaded gray wolves. The bushes that skirted the shore seemed to rush past me with the ve locity of lightDing as I dashed on, hoping to pass them, as the wolves tried to intercept me and cut me off, but they soon fell behind, and I turned toward home. j Every half minute a furious yelp from the wolves convinced me that they were still in close pursuit. j Hearer and nearer they came; every nerve and muscle in my frame was stretched to tne utmost tension. The trees along the shore seemed t? flnsh past me, and my brain whirled with the speed at which I was gof ing. Yet still my pursuers seemed to keep pace with me, every novr and then gaining a little when an in voluntary motion on my part turned me off my conrse. j The wolves, which were close bei hind, being unable to stop, and at unable to turn on the smooth icey slipped and fell. j The thought flashed on my minq that by this means I might avoid them; that is, by turning aside whenever they came too near, forj owing to the formation of their feet, they are unable to run on ice except in a straight line. i I immediately resolved to act up on this plan, aud after a long rac up stream, when the wolves were close behind me, I suddenly glided rounu ana uivsneu uirecuy p them. A fierce yell greeted my evolution, and the wolves slipping on their haunches, again sailed onward, pre senting a perfect picture of helpless ness and baffled rage. This was repeated two or three times, every moineut the animals be coming more and more excited and savage. At one time, from my delaying th. t mni ncr too long, mv Dursuers una v j - c ' w a came so near that they actually threw the while foam from their jaws over my clothes as they sprang . - J .1' . .1. .1. ,1 . at me, ana vueir teem ciasnea to gether like the spring of a steel- trap. Had my skates failed for an in stant; baa I tripped over a stick, or had my foot caught in a fissure of the ioe, the story I am now telling would never have been told. But I soon came opposite the house, and mv friend's hounds, roused by the noise, bayed furiously from their kennels. I heard their chains rat tle, and wished they would break tbem, for then I should hav had protectors able to cope with tb fiercest denizens of the torest. The wolves, taking the hint con veyed by the dogs, stopped in their mad career, and, after a few mo ments, turned and fled. I watched them until their forms disappeared over a distant bill; then taking off my skates, I wended my wav to house, with feelings which may be better imagined than described. But even yet, I never see a broad sheet of ice by moonlight without thinking of that night when I was chased wolves. John H. Mackey, Jr. A Horseback Jaunt. Captain Willard Glazier, who rode out of Boston on the 9th of May last, intending to make a horseback ride across the continent, has return ed to the Hub. He accomplished the undertaking, but, judging from his story, must be heartily glad it is over. The time occupied by the journey was two hundred days, the captain reaching the Golden Gate on the 24th day of November. The actual number "of days in the saddle was one hundred and forty-four, which give an average of twenty eight miles and seven-tenths per day. During this journey of four thousand miles Captain Glazier de livered forty-four lectures for the Grand Army fund and also for the Custer fund, visited six hundred and forty-eight cities, villages and sta tions. He tested the merits of three hundred and thirty-six hotels, farm houses and ranches and majle spe cial visits to one hundred public in stitutions and places of resort. He kilied three buffaloes, eight ante lopes, , twenty-two prairie wolves; was captured by the Sioux, killed two of them, escaped and came East by railroad, fully appreciating the value of steam as a motive power, and the comfort of living in a civil ized community. The Brooklyn Araus. with a de sire to make people satisfied with mild February weather, recalls this picture from the not distant past: Her feet flew out and down she came On the treacherous ice, with a terrible thump That rattled her bones and raised a lump OnThe back of bet beautiful head. And the crowd cried "Oh!" To see her so, Though never a word she said : But a startled glance at her stockings cast, Then wept like a stricken soul at last, For they weren't cardinal red. Among the "prominent arrivals" at Rochester, N. Y., is the man who barely escaped Ashtabula, just miss ed Angola, was a train behind the Carr's Rock affair, had started to the Brooklyn Theater that nicht. just left the powder mill at Troy, and was on his way to the Glen Cove starch factory. . For the Telegraph. Farmers' Wives and Daughters. A few week3 ago I read an article in one of our county papers in relation to women concerning farm work, and take this op portunity to reply to it. He stated the fact that many farmers' wives and daugh ters are almost entirely ignorant of ont door work such as mowing, pitching, ploughing, planting, and driving ox teams. He regrets it exceedingly; and -thinks that in nine cases out of ten this -work would prove beneficial to their health. WelL wa all have a perfect right to our opinion. I once heard of a man trying to teach his dog to live without eating; but before he learned the art, th& poor dog died. Now, if he should take the responsibility of teaching women to practice what he preach es, it is my belief that nine-tenths of them would rest from their labor in the arms of death before they had half learned to per form all that strong, hardy farmers ac complish. God created everything living for some purpose. The strong oak and the tender plants grow np side by side; one spreads out its branches afar, affording a shady resting place to many a weary trav eler; the other blossoms into beauty, de lights the eye with its many colored tints. Man is the strong, woman the weaker plant; both have a work assigned them, and the true and noble of either sex will work with a will at whatever their hands or brains find to do. Farmers' wives find plenty to do in tak ing care of their household affairs. If by good management they can spare an hour in the morning to work in the garden, when they are not obliged to stand over the cook stove or wash tub, the change will do them good bring a flush to their cheeks, and diffuse new life and vigor through their whole system. Too much work will do more harm (han good to any person's health. A woman may understand by observa tion not by practice how such heavy work ought to be done; and in many cases this will prove a benefit not to her health, but to her purse. I know of one, and only one, girl who has beem trained to such heavy work from a child ; she is strong and muscular, very masculine in appearance looks and speech or, I mieht say, very coarse, rough and unfemiuine. She is able to lift a barrel of flour from a wagon with apparently as much ease as a very strong man. A child may have health and strength, and yet not be trained to work altogether suitable for,them; for no on can deny the fact that rough work brings them in contact with rough people; it also causes them to dislike the retirement of home and home duties. Instead of assist ing the tired mother, as a daughter should be taught to do, the prefers driving oxen, raking hay, and in fact, any out-of-door employment. She dislikes washing dishes, sweeping and cooking more, evea, than her brother, were he oblighed to help his mother. If ever she assumes matrimonii duties, what confusion will reign in her house! From parlor to kitchen, from gar ret to cellar, disorder will be written in dust. The husband complains and with reason, too wishes she would cook as mother used to such tender meal, rich gravies and light biscuit! Poor child! she never was taught the art of cooking; she dislike all in-door employment No person can be perfect in all trades ia one short lifetime. We should strive to be perfect in what we profess to know. Then is some truth in the old proverb, "A roll. Ing stone gathers no moss," Persons who are oontiuually changing generally fail to accomplish what they are seeking for. I am a farmer's ton, and I know they some times need something beside the daily rou tine of work! work! work! They should be taught to make themselves and those around them happy; educated to appreciate all that ia beautiful in nature, and nature's God. Too many of our youth arrive to manhood and womanhood in Ignorance of all things except work; th body educated, the mind in darkness! One mission mere divine than any other in woman, is to cul tivate in their tender heart the pearls of G. H. C.
