In the New York Gazette of May
2, 1789 occurs the following concern
ing the inauguration of George Wash
ington, "The Scene on Thursday last was
sublimely great beyond any descrip
tive powers of the pen to do justice to
How universal and how laudable
the curiosity How sincere and how
expressive the sentiments of respect
and veneration! All ranks appear to
feel the force of an expression that,
was reiterated among the crowd
Well us deserves it all!"
Think of the columns of effusive
praise which have followed recent in
augurations and yet nothing has ever
fceen more expressive, nothing con
veyed more meauing than the simple
state ment made concerning our first

in New York City marked the birth
of our National Republic. Colouil

The hope of success lay apparently n
one man, revered and beloved- as no
other man had been or ever will be,
and upon the successful issue of the
trust to which he was then solemnly
devoted. What scene in history over
tops or even equals the grandeur nd
significance of that glorious consecra
tion ? It is right, too, that as the
first inaugural ceremony occurred in
New York City, the centennial cele
bration of that event should take
place in the metropolis. The sculp
tured figure of the illustrious hero
and statesman which stands in that
city, will be the central point of the
commemorative demonstration. And
could a more appropriate place be
found ? The patriotic feelings aroused
by the memory of the event have re
sulted in material action for its proper
observance, and the celebration of the
anniversary will be of a National
character a grand civic, military
and naval demonstration, probably
eclipsing the commemoration of any
event which has heretofore occurred
in our history.
The following from the New York
Wrld contains a lesson worth ponder
ing over:
Washington's first Inaugural, deliv
ered at the old city hall on Wall street
one hundred years ago, has not come
-i . i i: i. u:- c. n i
OOWn 10 us in nisiury ma jureweu
address. Indeed, at the beginning of
the first President's first term there
could not have been much to say ex
cept in the way of 'glittering geuera1
ites." Yet Washington's words, few
as they were, are worth recalling and
are suggestive in these days."
After speaking of "the conflict of
emotions with which he had heard the
voice of his country, never listened to
but with veneration and love, calling
upon him to quit the retreat of his
choice, made dearer by habit, age and
declining health, to assume an office
which might well awaken a distrust
ful scrutiny of qualification in the
wisest and most experienced, and su
ficient to overwhelm with despair one
inheriting inferior endowment
from nature and unpracticed
in the duties of civil administra
tion," the President addressed himself
to the immediate representatives of
the people in Congress. The historian
represents him as saying that it was
hardly the proper time, with no oppor
tunity as yet to become acquainted
with the exact state of affairs, to exer
cise his couststutional duty of recom
mending measures to their considera
tion; yet one subject he could not en
tirely pass over that of amendments
to the new Constitution. It was
well worthy the most seri3us at
tention of Congress whether, while care
tuily avoiding every alteration which
might endanger the benefits of a united
and effective government, or which
ought to await the lessons of exper
ience reverence for the characteristic
rights of freemen and regard for the
public harmony might not suggest
some provisions by which those rights
might be still more impregnablv for
tified and that harmony safely pro!
mo ted.
The Centennial Inauguration cere
monies next week will be attended by
the president of the United States and
nis cabiuet, by senators and represen
tatives in congress, by governors of
spates aud others high in authority.
Political leaders will be there, as they
are at every demonstration where cap
ital is to made and notoriety
gained. Might they not all reflect
with advantage on the words spoken
by Washington from the balcony of
the senate chamber in the
old City Hall a hundred years
ago ? How much do our millionaire
senators, sitting in purchased seats and
our representatives who are the
servauts of corporations, reverence
ihe rights of freemen? How do they
labor to still more impregnably for
tify those rights? What do our
scrambling partizans and sectional
giutor care about safely promoting
the public harmony? The modest
diffidence of Washington might well
teach a useful lesson to the holders of
all high public trusts. His simple,
u jse fiah devotion might profitably be
studied by legislators wnose duty to
the people is at all times made sub
servient to the exigencies of politics
and the seductions of the lobyist and
toe millionaire.
Bringing Up the Baby.
Every mother lias her own idea
as to how to bring1 up her babies
aright, and it is a. matter on which
few agree. But wo often think that
some mothers made a mistake in not
treating their little ones as if they
were reasoning creatures. Notice how
pleased tiny little tots are when given
some responsibility. As soon as they
begin to toddle, if taught aright, they
like to help mother by picking up or
carrying some trifle for her or doing
some similar act. Then is the time to
begin training them to be real helpers.
Of course, it often seems to be a real
bother, for one may do things quicker
without this hindering assistance. But
it is a part of the child's education.
Similarly, babyhood is none too early
to begin teaching politeness, and the
proper way is to be as polite to the
baby as to any one else. People some
times think that a child does not
feel discourtesy we hold a contrary
opinion. Some little slights that were
not meant as such, offered in our ex
treme childhood, are remembered to
this day, aad all sensitive children
suffer in the same way. Emily Louise
A certain ireacher discoursing
upon Bunyan and his works, caused a
titter among his hearers by exclaim
ing: 'In these days, my brethren, we
want more I5uny:ins." Another cler
gyman, pleading earncsity with his
parishioners for the construction of a
cemetery for their parish, asked them
to consider the 4 'deplorable condition
of 80,000 Christian Englishmen living
without Christian burial.1' Still more
curious was this clerical slip: A
gentleman said to the minister: "When
do you expect to see Deacon S. again?"
"Never," said the reverend gentle
man, solemnly. "The deacon is in
"I believe." said the traveler,
"that I would have frozen to death
one night last winter while crossing a
spur of the Rocky Mountains but for
a highwayman. I had no blankets
and no buffalo robe, and was at the
point of freezing when the stage was
stopped and the kind-hearted robber,
seeing my condition, covered me with
a revolver." Brooklyn Eagle.

Que of the Hitherto Unwritten Romance
of the Second Empire.
The Marechal Niel is one of tha
iloveliest roses of its kind, the noisette,
and in its name and origin there is one
oi the hitherto unwritten romances of
the court of France in the Second em
pire. In 1859, when the French army
was sent to help King Victor Emman
uel drive the Austrians out of Italy,
the Third Army Corps was commanded
by General Niel. This oflicer, as his
name implies, came of one of thosft
Irish noble families who emigrated to
iFr&nce after the battle of the Boyne
in 1690, as did the .MacMahons, the
Fitz-James and others, who are now
Irish in nothing but their names.
General Niel had commanded and
fought his corps with such eminent
ability and distinguished courage, that
when peace was made, with his coun
tryman and friend, MacMahon, he was
created a Marshal of France. It was
well nigh autumn before General Niel
was able to return to France. He had
been terribly wounded, and had suf
fered besides from the dreadful fever
of the Italian marshes. For months'
he was between life and death, with
only his surgeon, who was his con
stant companion, and a soldier servant,
who proved to be an admirable nurse
in his illness and convalescence.
One day a peasant woman brought
him a whole basket of wild roses from
the Campagna region. General Niel
had always been extremely fond of
roses, and most of these were new to
Mm, and thus served to amuse him un
til they were withered. He observed,
however, that one particular shoot had
not faded and died like the others,
but had grown into a beautiful green
plant of perhaps tea inches in length.
When ho looked to see why this one
.had grown and the others faded, he
found that a bit of the root had been
cut away with the flower, which was
of t palish-yellow hue. Scarcely know
ing why, Niel determined to keep the
shoot so curiously preserved. When
he returned to Paris he placed the
young shoot with an expert floricult
urist, and next spring it bore four of
the loveliest buds in the world, of a
pale-lemon tinge, At that time Gen
eral Niel was sent for to receive the
highest military rank then known in
France, the Grand Cross of the Legion,
and his commission as Marshal of
France, in presence of three Emperors
and all the Kings in Europo worth nam
ing. After the solemn ceremony was
ended, and ho wore for the first
time in that day the Grand Cross of
the Legion of Honor, he went to the
reception of the Empress who was
splendid in her perfection of beauty
and presented to her a curious yellow
ish rose of perfect form and perfume,
but different from any she had ever
seen, and told her its story.
"And so you have proved the truth,
of what the old abbe used to say in
his dreadfully tedious sermons at Pau
about casting the bread on the waters,"
said the Empress (who, like Queen
Elizabeth of blessed memory, "loved
a fine man,") to the handsomest and
most daring, as well as one of the
ablest of the Marshals of the Second
empire. "Dear me, but he was tedious,
that good abbe," continued her Majes
ty, with the softest look of retrospec
tion in her lovely dark eves. "Now,
ilonsleur le Marechal," said she, viva
ciously, "I shall christen this rose for
"Do so," said the Franco-Irish sol
dier, bowing very low, but flashing
at her a glance of profound admira
tion so warm that it deepened her
color a little as they stood alone,
for, though the great salon of
the place was crowded, no one dared
interrupt a tete-a-tete, which she her
self had allowed, between the Empress
and the handsomest General of his
Lightly putting the rose to her lip3,
she said: "It is named the Marec ial
Niel, for the soldier sans peur cl sasn
reprocJic, as gallant in the salon as he
is on the battlefield."
This gracious speech went straight
to the great soldier's Irish heart.
"You will wear it to-night, Your
Majesty, will you not. and afterward
give it to me to keep, this happy
"Monsieur le Marechal!" said the
Empress, with great dignity.
"I pray your forgiveness," he an
swered. "No, no, I am not as angry as I
ought to be," she replied; "but but
people might hear," and with a Par
thian glance she departed.
Four days thereafter Colonel Lewal,
then Niel's chief of staff, but not long
eince Minister of War for the French
Repnblic, observed his chief take a
surreptitious rosebud out of an en
velope ho had just received, and lock
it up in a private drawer. Leslies

The Queor Domiciles cf an Alaska Tribe ol
In pre-historic times, human beings
often dwelt in dens and caves of the
earth, as much for safety from their
numerous enemies as for shelter. Cave
towns were even excavated in the sides
of cliffs with what must have been,
considering the rude tools employed,
an enormous expenditure of labor.
The evidences of this custom are nu
merous in Asia Minor, in Italy, and in
our own Southwest Territories. To
day the most notable instance of cave
houses, on this hemisphere, at least,
is to be seen on what is termed King's
Island, to the Southeast of Cape Prince
of Wales in Behring's Sea, on the west
coast of Alaska.
This small island is an elevated ta
ble land of basalt Its shores consist
of nearly vertical cliffs, fronting the
sea, and ranging in height from fifty
to seven hundred feet. The island is
inhabited by a tribal family of the
Mahlemoots, or Esquimaux, about two
hundred in number, who gained a sub
sistence by walrus-hunting, seal-hunt-ingand
whaling. They pursue the
creatures in kyaks or canoes, which they
are very expert in launching through
the surf, and navigating in rough wa
ter. The summer houses of tho islanders
are so many little platforms attached
to the face of the sea-cliffs, and com
posed of whale rib bones, or shoulder
blade bones, fastened by thongs of
sinew to largo pegs of bone driven into

The oddity of those singular habita-
tions does not end here, however, since
escape the winter storms the islanders
have excavated caves in the shattered
and seamed basalt in manv case3
caverns of considerable depth and
size. During eight months of tho
year these cave dwellings constitute
comfortable retreats from the inclem
ent weather and also serve as store
houses fo the rude wealth of the fam
ily. There are, it is stated, forty or
fifty such cave-houses, corresponding
to the number of families and to the
platforms of summer. In some cases
the platform-house is at the mouth of
the cave-house, so that tho shift from
summer to winter quarters can do

A bird that builds its ne3t in a shel

"The foxes have holes, and tho birds

They make them for their purposes,
and this is certainly control over
naturo to that extent. How does tho

which a tribe of monkeys prepare to
rob a corn-field. Lot us describe it.
When they get ready to start on their
expedition, an old monkey, the leader
of the tribe, with a staff in his hand,
so as to stand upright more easily,
marches ahead on two legs, thus being
more elevated than the others, so as to
see signs of danger more readily. The
rest follow him on all-fours. The leader
advances slowly and cautiously, care
fully reconnoitering in all directions,
till the party arrives at the corn-field.
He then assigns tho sentinels to their
respective posts. All being now in
readiness, the rest of the tribe ravage
and eat to their hearts' content. When
I they retire, each one carries two or
three ears of corn along, and from this

of baby words. It is well enough for
children who are just learning to talk
to have some pet names for parents,
and one does not object to the affect-,
tionato use of 'mamsy," 'mammy,"
and such words in private; but even in
the mouths of little children there is
no word more loving and precious
than "mother." Now it- is common,
for grown men and women who are
themselves mothers and perhaps
elderly, to habitually speak of thei?
44pahpah" and "mahmah" accenting
strongly the first syllable of words.
These ugly terms are less prim and
conventional than the 4 'papa" and
"mamma" many other women prefer,
but they are not pleasing to the ear.
"Pa and ma," "paw and maw," 4poppy
and mommy," are among the fanciea
of other adults; and one Hears these
names till one longs for the good olc
word, father and mother. Imagine
the commandment revised to "Thou
shalt honor thy pahpah and thy mah
mah," or the fine old hymns changed
to ,4Papa of me and all mankind," or
"Pahpah in thy mysterious presence
kneeling." Think of a Mahmah in Is-
rael; or of necessity being the Mahmabr
of invention; or of speaking your mam
ma-tongue, being gifted with mamma--wit,
or of loving your papa-land. Let
children have a father and mother,
and let no household be deprived of
these strong and tender names. Wor
