"There Is nn old song which sings how a certain venerable man delighted to pass the evening of his days in in itiating his grandchild in the exhilarat ing game of draughts, and how, so well did the lad profit by his instruction, that at last the old man was beaten by tho boys.' In looking over tho two parts of St. Nicholas, this old song has come back to us. Certainly the pre ducers of such literature for our own boys and girls must look to their laurels. Both In thu letterpress and the engravings these two volumes seem to us (though the admission touch our vanity or our patriotism, call it by which name we will, something closely) above anything wo product in the same line. Tho letterpress, while contain ing quite as large a power of attraction for young fancies, is so much more idca'd, so much less commonplaco, al together of a higher literary style than the average production of our annuals of the same class. And the pictures are often works of real art, not only as engravings, but as compositions of orig iaal design." The London Times. There has been no ttmo when small-pox was so near an epidemic over the entire country as now. East, West, North, and South, and across the water our exchanges speak of the dis ease as alaimlng tho people. It will do good iu one sense: it will wako the people up to a sunso of tho necessity of piotection by vaccination. City people as a rule, aro vaccinated, but those in country districts are not. Being less exposed, tho importance of vaccination is not considered. During the war of the rebellion moro than four-fifths of the men in thu Woteru army who contracted small-pox were from regi ments of healthy, strong men, recruited in eouutry districts. It was tho same with other contagious diseases. In a regiment of 1,000 men, flesh from their homes iu country districts, 500 at ono timo weie down with measles. Tho sick lists from other regiments were so lurco as to call for investigation from oltleurs, by which these facts wero divulged. 1 no mortality from these sources was great. Ot course thero was no chance for protection asalnst any of these diseases, except suiutl-pox. We muutieu these tacts to show to our less exposed country renders theimnortanco of protecting themsevos. It is a good thing to let children havo tho measles and mumps and vhooi)iiiir-eoii''li. These diseases seldom injure thu sys tems oi tue young, nut ttiey should be protected usalust the small-pox by vac oinntion. Fow peoplo go through life and entirely escape contagion, and elthor one to grown people is a fearful and dangerous disease. It has been us sorted with many facts to prove it, that measles killed as manv mon as bullets lu tho last war, FOR TEN YEARS. Th Tenth Anniversary of the Woman's Union Appropriately CeltbraUd.

Miss Mary Kaucher recited "The First Stittlor's Story's iu n most excellent manner. Tho society's Paper was then read by Mrs. Birdsall Fiegenbaum.

Another year has come and gone to us forever, since lat we met, to eclo brato the anniversary of our society; and iu its passage, it has been thu silont witness ot many changes. With us, it has been a pleasant year. Death has not invaded our ranks, and wo havo lost but one member by removal. No dissensions have been known, but all have worked together in peace and har mony. Sweot cluuity has been culti vated, and many hearts have been made glad through our means. Thu kindli est feelings have been indulged toward ail. Our library has been iucreascd by tho addition of somo valuable books. Our finances are in Mich a condition, as enables us to meet all reasouablo de mands. But theso things are as but an atom in the great universe, compared to tho si lent, unseen influences, which have operated upon us through our Union work. Each and every one of us have been strengthened by tho mingling together. Our hearts havo been puri fied, and wo have been better propared to assumo the overy day cares and duties of life. We havo learned moro and moro of our weaknesses and our faults, and we trust, have been better prepar ed to avoid In tho future, tho errors of the past. We have discussed all sub jects from bread and snap-making down to how to manago a husband; and wo can assure you, the last is ot no small Importance. Tun years ago, to-night, a littlo band of women met at a private residence, for tho purpose of organizing a society to be called the "Woman's Union," havii'g for its object tho mental, moral and physical improvement of woman. Tho first great object to be accomplish ed was a full and free interchange of thought and experiences, and a full ami gonotal council as to what was best to do under certain conditions; soon tho wants of our society shaped themsolves and wo became as one. At first, our society was slightingly spoken of by some, like all now enterprises, while by others who understood us better and felt a sympathy for us, wo wero bidden a Cod spued. Tho rules of our socisty, require orig inal essays, select readings, essay, roc Itations and debates, also the cultiva tion ot miielu to somo extent. No one can compose an essay without thought; and the very fact, that each member has endeavored to do her duty JANUARY 13, 1882. I. .. in tuts respect, sho.vs that wc have btfcn bettered by thu association. The select readings and recitations havo been taken from tho grainiest thoughts of tho greatest nntl best men and wom en tho world has ever known. Not only tho reader, but tho whole society, mis been improved in spirit nnd truth, by thu communion with the dead past and living present. And not only havo we boon Improved mentally and morally, but physically. Household cares and duties havo be como n pleasure, wherein they were once Irksome. There aro hours when wu feci that it Is not "all of life to llvo." The soul of every human being at times, feels nn inward craving for food, tho body becomes worn and weary, and we feel a want for some thing moro than tood and clothing; at such times our thoughts naturally turn tooursouiety, and in Its duties and as sociations, our lives are renowed and strengthened. Wc would havo woman, when she reaches tho propor age, to select her own calling; let her bo unbiased by any faKo restraints; lot her every day transactions nnd duties, be a continual advancement. Under tho restrictions of the past, a young woman when she marries takci charge of the household ; and gradual, ly as her houshold duties Increaso, t-ho diops ono by one, tho means of mental improvement. One by ono, her corres pondence with her girl friends ceases, and years pass without her taking a pon in hand indeed she almost for gets her favorite authors ; whllo on the other hand her husband, with his asso ciations with men ol the world, contln ually advances; step by step, his fncu ties aro developed, educated and im proved, whllo sho becomes a mcru household drudge. Is It any wonder, that in a few years they drift apart? This has boon tho rock upon which so many households havo been wrecked forever. No, wo would not hare wom an because she has become a wife, bur red from nil improvement; but wu would havo her stand side, by side, with her husband, his equal. We do not claim perfection, but that in each year of thu past, a marked im provement has been madu we do think. During the past ten years, about 000 originnl essays havo been written upon almost all subjects; we havo had more than one thousand select readings in poetry nnd proo; ovur four hundred recitations havo been given, besides a great many talks and debates. We have received and paid out about $3,000 and still have a lecture fund of over $100. We havo enrolled on our books 105 names. Death has taken ten of the dear ones from the tola, nnil many havo removed to different parts of thu country, but our hearts aru often made happy.by receiving letters of encourage ment from thu absent onus. Ono want which wo havo felt more than all others, is u town lull, or somo suitable place iu which to hold our en tertainments and lectures. Front this cause wo have been deprived tho past year of tho pleasure of bringing bu foro you, some of thu bust talent. Wo do, must sincerly hopo, this want will soon bo supplied. And now, iu conclusion, dour sisters of thu Union, although wo have ac complished much, let us not bo "weary in well doing," but continue to work ; and in this, thu beginning of tho new year, let us havo anil keep nuw resolu tions nnd nuw hopes. It is in littlo horns that mako tho whole of exist ence, and bocauso of tills, we should never despise the day of small begin iiings. Our weekly meetings and their duties may at times seem unproflublo and even irksome, but when wo reflect, that each duty wo perform is for our advancement, we should never falter.
