Harlow Sa; is Under Hit! Weather, Hut Undaunted. IS NOW SEVENTY-SEVEN Walks Ou Into Hi3 Carden for First Tirro In a Month Deplores Re cent Horrible Diaster Wrought ry Terrors of the Clements. When Ahashnorua w.-a king of Tcr e!a bo pot so mad with lUnrui one flay that ho walKed out into the gar-Jen to let his eholer down not hid shirt collar, hut to cool off hi a anger, for fear ho might do something undigni fied. Then ho came back and had 11a ann hanged on tho galluw3 ho had built for Mordecal. Well, 1 walked out In my garden yoi torday, tho first time in a month, but I 'a3 not mad with anybody. In fact, I am pleased that I am allowed onca more to walk outdoors and peruse tho flowers and vegetables and pick a few strawberries April 21 and had a good watch mo and have i.ept mo pcuned up for months whilo the east wind chilled the air, hut now they help ma down the steps and up again and arm mo around among the flowers. They aro very beautiful from tho window, but more so when you are near to Ihem. We never had so many beauti ful popples before all colors ail sizes double and treble and as large as eauccrs. We had ur first mess of Btrawhcrries Aprl 24 and had a good mess yesterday, and have not missed a day. Our vegetable garden supplies the table bountifully, but the garden Is not mine. The girls planted It and with a little help have grown every thing. "The world was sad, tho garden was a wild; And man, the hermit, sighed till wo man smiled." We are enjoying the fruits of their labor every day, for wo have potatoes, beans, peas, squashes, onions, beets and asparagus every day if we want them "or have company. A little bacon with the beans and two spring chick ens completes the first course, and then comes strawberry shortcake, which is always welcome. We live well at our house, and arc not extrava-' gant either. A bountiful dinner for twelve persons costs not more than $2, and the grandchildren consume half of that, bless their hearts. I do love to Bee them enjoy a good dinner, and they love to como here, and always have a ki3s for poor old grandpa. I was 77 years old Monday. June Is full of our family birthdays. My wife was 71 on the 1st and I was 77 on the 15th, and my oldest grandson, who has my name, has my bir'.Jiday. My mother has the 2 1th and our grand daughter, Caroline, is named for her and Las her tirthday. And there are some more In June that I have forgot ten. Two little granddaughters brough me some nice linen (h'd'k'fs) before breakfast. Theso little gifts aro sweet and help to smooth the wrinkles from an old man's brow. Our little 2-year-old love3 to climb on my knee and pat my old cheek and call me g'acpa and that gives me more pleas tire than a gold mine. May tho Lord keep the little, ones under the shadow of His wing. Oh, the horror of horrors away out In Oregon. Will cloudbursts and fires and floods and shipwrecks never cease? Every day bring3 some new disaster, some wreck of Innocent child life, some mother torn away. Lord, good Lord, have mercy upon the peo ple and forgive all their sins. Like the poor fisherman I would say. "Lord good Lord, I am a fool to speak to Thee, but save tho children from the storm and flood and fire and pesti lence." When I read the day's disas ters my old heart throbs with pity, and, like the weeping prophet, I ex claim, "Oh, that my head were waters and my eyes a river of tears that I might weep day and night for the slain of the people" 40, CO, 100, 200, 400. Every day adds to pain and mis- cry and anguish and desolation. Loved ones arG gone and Bbmes. Somehow when I look around me at all these happy hearts and faces and the flowers lifting their petals to tho sun and the pigeons bathing in the pool and see the young people playing tennis down in the court and the contented negro plowing my neighbor'3 corn and the row grazing in the pasture, I feel like It Is amost a sin to be happy while so much grief and heartache abound all around us. It did not use lo be so. In my youth we had no suicides; mur ders were rare; no crazy people to fill the sanitariums; r.o rhaing?.ngs; no crime of any consequence. What i3 the matter with the world and the poo pie? Even women, have got to hand ling pistols urn! poUon, and grave dig- irn have yttn on a Htrlke nnd we will have to dig our own graven hi fore we die. Lord, help u-i all.

ORCHARD CULTIVATION. , It Is surprising to hear people dis cussing the question of non-cultivation or cultivation of apple orchards. Th-3 discussion would indicate that there ire orchai'dist3 who practice no eul Llvation with marked success la some places; but those who give no cultiva- ;lon either cover the soil with straw or manure or keep in the orchards flocks Df sheep or swine that continually en ich the soil. Many people have culti vated their orchards so deep as to cut off the top feeding roots of the trees ind have thus done their, orchards in lury. Where orchards have been cul tivated with intelligence, nearly all the work being done with a disc harrow, cultivation has proved as desirable for apple trees as for other fruit3. All young orchards should be continually cultivated, and we might add nearly all older orchards. And yet it Is claimed by some that apple trees will do much better in sod ground without cultivation than peach trees. No one will attempt to grow peach trees with out more thorough cultivation.

Dr. Will iam U. Huntington, rector (if Grace Church, preached recently n sermon to ft fashionable si hoo! for fclri wlucli lim attracted much lit tcntion, nnd by uqiifnt it is hero given. The text w.n chosen Horn Jsai.ill xlvii: 7: ''Thou fnid.-it, I Hliall be a lady forever." Dr. Huntington Mid: 1 quote our prophet in tin fragmentary way lor the Hake of vividr.ei.-t. The briefer Cie text, the more likely it in to be re r.r:r.V'rcJ. Hut if. under present rtrcutn tlanci.-i, "v,'o would do justice t' the r..nn nnd to his thought. Home heed mi;it be given to what has 'une before und to what follows. Taken by theitiseh e-i the words Koiind ns it' they inr.t lvc bccuj n the first instance, addrried to a, V.'i..au, but they were not. The nr-pirnnt nftrr nn evcilai-tin ladyship was no -woman at all, but a city an ancient city, a city cpulcnt, and Miperb, liabvlon the r;reat. l-'.nilioldtneil like ancient lloinp by its military conquests, intoxicated like medi- c,.'ni J en i'; p. by n commercial prosperity, oiiiiiicnt liue modern i,onuon in tne pos- osio:i of resource which seemed measure less, ihi queen city of (,'hnldca had come to think cf iNclf as Invincible nnd indes- tible. "House of Eternity was the name it pave to one ot its tempirs. "foun dation stone of heaven and csrtli" rail the ain-zloiious appellation of another. Gar dens and park, the city had in abundance. A miiihty bridge which crossed and a tun nel which uudciran thft river Euphrates were amotift its ensmeenn? triumphs, lbe circuit of the walls, lofty and broad al most beyond belief, was between titty and sixty miles. Hut there was a man in Jerusalem whom none of these things greatly moved in the sense of stupefying or alarming him. Th,o man a name wai Jsaiah and his lather name was Amoz. When people, came to him with their panic talk about the big ness of Babylon and tiie littleness of Jerus alem, he betrayed no apprehensions on the contrary, lie spoke up and harangued Babylon with much plainness of speech. ?ut thou siient, he cried, and set thee into darkness, O daughter of the Chal deans, for thou shalt no more be called the lady of kingdoms. Thou saidst 1 shall be a lady forever therefore hear thou, thou that art given to pleasures, that dwellest carelessly these two things shall come to thee in a moment, in one clay, the loss of children and widowhood. They shall come noon, thee in their perfec tion tor the multitude of thv sorceries and for the great abundance of thin en chantments." Ihus sternlv. almost fierceiv, Tsaiah. ren of Amoz, addresses mighty Babylon.- lie speaks of her as to a woman of rank whose pride and indoeility are presently to prore ler overthrow and to transform her pleas ant palaces into ruinous heaps, bhe lean upon her advantage of high station all un aware that the staff isMoo brittle for the weight. Forgetful of the duties which con dition privilege., she fancies that old time1 prerogative and1 th(? accumulated prestige ot many generations will be her satetv. God's prophet determines to shake her out of this illusion, to compel her to open her eyes to the hard! fact and he does it. as we have seen. With the text thus well in hand, we proceed. Under what conditions is it pos sible, cither for a city or for a woman, to become, in very deed and truth, a lady forever? Thisis the question to which I shall ask you to bend your- thought to-night, and which ended yesterday or to the week which has been entered upon to-day I cannot but account the topic a timely one. It may seem to be comparing email things with great to name the commencement week of a scnool for- girl in the same breath with the commemorative week of n city which has lived; through the fourth part of a thousand years, bat, perhaps, before we are done, my boldness in ven turing thus to couple-thtr two may be for given me. Ut the sorts of ladyship- or which. 1 nave made mention, that to wl'vieh communities and that to which individuals may attain, we will lock at civic ladyship first. With civic ladyship we associate those qualities wnicn win ior cities an: aaouring love. Physical strength, riches, commercial en terprise will give a city lordship. That is one thing; but ladyship ia quite another. For the compelling of respect lordship may Bulfice a city, tor the winning of at- fection something ot la, -ship is essental. How about the Lady of the Hudson? Has she any better ground for ounting upon the perpetuity of her- ladyship than had the Lady of the Euphrates? Can we trust her any more implicitly than Isaiah trust ed Babylon when she says coulidently "I shall be a lady torever;. inat uepenas upon the relative measure of importance which the city, ia the- long run, shall as Bign to the treasures of the market as compared with the treasures of the soul. 1 am using the word, soul in a largo and comprehensive- sense. Religion and religious interests are- o course foremost in my thought,, since;, -without a due re gard to these no city can permanently live; but when I speak of the treasures of me soui as esseniuu iu uiu cuy iiun wuuin adventure ladyshipi L tiaive in mind all ot those precious, things, tjut go to make u the idealistic as contrasted with the ma terialistic side of. humin life Uighteous liess? Yes.. Worship1; Yes; but beside these, poetry, letters and whatever else there may be that ministers betiuty to the eye of harmony and melody to the ear. These last are w.hat nuke the treasures ot the soul. These,, mingled in due propor tion, give to a municipality what silver and gold and negotiable securities of them selves can never give that indescribable quality which: I have- ventured to call civic ladyship. The prevailing note during the pawt week has been the nolo of self-congratula tion. Whatever flags and fjowers could Cm to convince people through the eye, or 6peech and song to. persuade them through toe ear has, been attempted. It has beet jubilate throughout, as was proper enougb in connection witn birthday festivities, and yet there is another side to it nil. Trf statistics of the city's trade aro marvel ous, but what of the inventory of its spiritual possession nnd the roster of its great men? How many poets and how many seers, how many composers and how many artists, how many scholars and di vines, how many philosophers and states men has this community produced in the course of its two hundred and liftv years of organized existence? Nay, of those whom we recall as having come under or.c or another of these heads, how many havt been of first rank, how many even of sec ond rank, when the complete census ot "the great 0f old" is taken into account : These, perhaps," are humbling reflections but they are wholesome. It is by coiuil of heroes, not by count of heads, that city's place in the final list of honors ii tt 1 tje!crti!lm,.l.

I'.etort (it tempting to answer the finest ion, let in clear our tuindj as completely a may be ol prepidiee i.nd TiuHipjiieiiensiofi. Thu word "laJy" lias fallen of hij yean (the more' the pity somewhat into (Ms repute. Claimed as a light by the many, the title has come to be lightly esteemed as a privilege by the few. In tact, so cheap is it accounted nowadays that to discard it altogether, carefully avoiding the use of it in common conv.rMition, h riot seldom taken to be a mark of good breeding. All do riot no to tins extreme and, yet the number of those who would prefer to be spoken of mid addressed ai "women," rather than us "ladies,'' has I cen steadily in reasiug for the past twen ty years, and this increase, I think I a:n r.afe in saying, has been ia fixed ratio to cur progress as a people in cultivation and refinement. I venture to account thii an unfortunate Ftat-. of things, since "lady" is a wold which the language cannot lose wit hout sore impoverishment r.n one tor which the vocabulary of every day inter course has no Kynonyms. "Lady," l it observed, is a title, r.ot a generic word, ncccssari'y covering I! the members of one sex; and as a title it be longs only to those who have a v ght to claim it. Now, who are they who, ia point of fact, have a riglu to claim it? In monarchist countries there is no diiliculty in finding an answer to this question. In England, for example, the Heralds' Of iiee, to which such matters are intrusted, can and will give you a definition in blac'c and white, dear-cut -ail unmistakable. A "lady," by English law, may be the wife of a man above the of knight and below that of duke. The title also belongs to the daughters of noblemen not below the rank ur earl nnd is given by courtesy to the wives of knights. Let that pass for - ngland, but what of ladyship in America, where no such sharp divisional lines ar: drawn by the pencil ot authority? Here, thank Cod, we have a much worthier definition of the word and more satisfactory interpretation of tha thing. ladyship, under a democracy, means and can mean only one tiling, womanhood at its best. Not all woman hood 1 womanhood at its best any more thn all manhood is ma. ' ood at its hesf would tint it were. And what are the characteristics of womanhood at its best? What are the lc':o-- by which it i au thenticated? We cannot greatly differ in opinion upon this point, teurel.v of these characteristics dignity is one, ge.itlencs. is another, fortitude is a third and sym pathy complete the cluster. It were un reasonable, of course, to expect the full ness of each one of these four traits in any single personality, no matter how rich ly endowed by tnfieritanea or earctu.'.y matured by training. And yet it is beyond question that some tincture of each one must be found present in a woman before, cnuer democratic conditions, her claim to ladyship can be accounted valid. liigaity there are a thousand imita tions of it, counterfeits beyond number, buti how wholly admirable is tho genuine article, what "an excellent thing in wom an!" Aot by aping uignity do we- become dignified. Aloofness is not dignity, hau teur is not dignity, stiffness is not dignitv, a puiupous manner ami a brocaded stve of s(eech ehese are not uignity. True dig nity is not of ice, it is of name. A certain delieaite and fiery nimbus which circles the sanctuary of personality to tafeguard it from intrusion and encroachment. "Their dignity," exclaims an O'ld Hebrew pro phet,, giving us the wholo thing in a1 nut shell,, "their dignity shall proceed of them selves;." Dignity Is jecuuicilablu with all forms of occupation, even the most men tal. It consorts with many qualities,, although-with vanity it is reluctant to-walk,, and with immodesty it will have nothing to do.. Immodesty ia the sin against pro portion; its very name so signify ing;. and ts the philosophic emperor remarks in his meditations, "There is a proper dignity and proportion to be observed in the per formanve of every act of life." Hence ta do any'Jiing out of rncasuro: and in excet: ts undignified. Then ftfl t.r crfntl5nca nwi- cnnnrwl nf TL. bute of womanhood at its best, what 6halL' we say ot gentleness? Carr we say any thing hotter or truer than' that it"ia- the child, tlie direct offspring of dignity.. The truly dignified can scarcely be thought, ot as the ungentle, for here again that ques tion of proportion comes in, and rough ways and boisterous talk stand, seifrcon demned.. Few things indeed oau we- so ill. afford to spare out of the daily intercourse of life as woman's gentleness.. And this i only the more true the noisier the- worhf becomes. With life punctuated' for us by the shrieks of steam whistles,, the- rattle of the ohariots of iron; and the strokes at all manner of gongs,, how- restful, havt healthful, how reinvigorattng re- the cents of gentleness! Ah, my dear young friends, whatever else you forget to be, remember to be gentle: An- anxions T'euir in tin -hearts of many thoughtful people,, a fear which personally I db not share,. ht of wh-ich it is just as well tui take note, is that sut of all this contemporary struy??le of woman for a complete- independence, this duplication on her paatt of as mucin of man's work as is imitable there may aorne eventually an impnirmeni of the wwrld's totaf stock ot gentleness.. P.et its be- raisers here. The tide of 'this-sweet grace is never rt the flood. There is no peril of any civer-fo;-. We need to. treasure every drop there is. As to fortitude, I chfw th word with care, wishing to marl; off from courage in general that special form of this virtue which has fotmd freqwent and sp'endid il lustration in- the annals of womanhood. Courage of h H- which qualities one "to ; drink delight of battle,' to head storming : narties an J to volunteer on forlorn hones is not expected of women, and, for that matter, is not so co-mmon among men as men would like to have it thought, but of that other and more praiseworthy fear'ess ness, which, without the excitement of con flict, is able patiently to suffer, nersi?tent ly to endure, in this Christ.'ike virtue, it is possible it l'.a-i ten thousand times been shown to bo pnsmole that women should excel. With the aroma of this virtue wholly absent no woman's character even so much as apnvoximates perfection. I'ut it is not enough to be able uncom plainingly to suffer have we learned to fcufer with?
