Oh, who can tell the thousand cares a
mother only knows,
From earliest dawn of morning light till
evening's glad repose?
The stitches and the steps she takes
there's nobody can count,
Or .number all her busy thoughts, an
tell us their amount ;
But this I'm sure from morning's dawn
till evening's silent close,
A mother has a thousand cares a mother
onlv knows.
Just see her little family, suppose it
numbers nine.
Who, eighteen scores of times a jrear,
must breakfast, sup and dine ;
So often must the snow-white cloth upon
the board be spread,
For self and husband daughters four,
two sons, and kitchen maid ;
So often must each dish be washed, each
fork and spoon and knife;
Who wonders if the mother fades amid
the cares of life.
I said her little family 'tis not so very
And yet 'tis hers to wash, and bake, and
brew and mend for all.
She may have help. But who kno ws not
most modern help removes
No very heavy cares, except "the. fishes
and the loaves " ?
So week by week and year by year, to
"manage" her affairs,
She meekly toils to guide the house
amid a thousand cares.
Slip's not a moment's time to waste, but,
steady as the clock,
She knits the boys their Winter hose, or
darns a daughter's frock ;
She's waiter to a thousand wants, and
hears a thousand pleas
From hungry ones just come from school,
or babe upon her knees ;
And not a bruise does one receive, but,
oh ! she shares the smart,
With all the deep, warm sympathy that
thrills a mother's heart.
'Tis she that rocks the cradled babe with
kind and patient heart ;
The earliest at the couch of pain, the
latest to depart ;
She toils and toils the livelong day, and
when she seeks repose,
Her busy thoughts will scarce allow her
. weary lids to close. .
Whose ears like hers the whole night
long attends each painful noise,
The croupy breathing of her girls, the
coughing of her boys?
Nor will she from the Summer's heat
nor Winter's coldness shrink,
But rises in the sultry night to give her
children drink ;
And when the wintry wild winds howl
and urge the drifting storm.
She'll rise and spread an extra quilt to
keep the children warm.
There's none so full of cares as she upon
the wide, wide earth.
And yet a mother is not prized one-half
a mother's worth.
Forgive me then, this fond attempt from
thoughts of other days,
To rear to mothers' memories a monu-
ument of praise ;
For one yet lives upon the earth for
whom my heart doth swell
With filial gratitude and love as words
can never tell.
That one is she who gave me birth, who
'mid a thousand cares,
Poured out, and still pours out, for me a
mother's yearning prayers
One-half cup of sugar, one-half cup
of butter, one-half cup of milk, two
cups of flour, two eggs, juice and
grate the rind of one lemon, one-half
teaspoonful of soda; bake in small
square tins and ice on sides and
One and a half pounds of sugar,
one cup of cream, one -tablespoonful
of butter, half a cake of Baker's
choclate. Mix all together in a
stewpan and let it copk,f stirring Jt
frequently until done. " You can find
this out by dropping 'a' little in a
tumbler of water j if it .hardens at
once it is done. Just before pour
ing it out, of the pan flavor with
vanilla or lemon. Pour into a but
tered dish and before it gets perfect
ly cold cut into squares, by running
a knife up and down the dish, about
an inch big. It will break nicely
when cold.
Chop a pound of veal into pieces
an inch square, cut a slice of ham
into dice, and slice three dozen extra
podfc?, one onion and a pod of
pepper ; sprinkle them lightly with
flour and fry until a nice brown in a
tablespoonful of lard. Add to this a
half gallon of boiling water, and boil
gently for two hours. When half
done, put in two tablespoontuls ot
tomatoes, and just betore sending to
the table season with any preferred
herbs. Serve with boiled rice.
The juice and grated rind of one
lemon, one cup of white sugar, the
yolks of two eggs, three tablespoon
fuls of sifted flour and rich milk
Enough to fill your plate or pan.
This makes a large pie and should
be made with an under crust only.
Bake until nearly done, then take
it from the oven and spread it over
the beaten whites of two eggs, with
two tablespoontuls of powdered
sugar. Set back in the oven until
brown. Eat cool, or quite cold.
Twelve large, ripe peaches, free
stones, whites of three eggs whisked
to a standing froth, two spoonfuls
water, one cup powdered sugar. Put
water and beaten whites together,
dip in each peach, when you have
rubbed off the fur and rolled in pow
dered sugar. Set carefully upon the
-item end upon white paper laid on
a waiter in a sunny window. When
half dry roll again in sugar. Expose
to the sun and breeze until dry, then
put in a cold, dry place until readj
to arrange in glass dish for the
Potato pancakes make an excel
lent dish for supper. Serve with
the same embellishments in the way
of pickles, sauces, as you would do
were the dish you were offering fried
oysters. Grate a dozen medium
sized potatoes, after peeling them
and washing thoroughly. Add the
yolks of three eggs, a heaping table
spoonful flour, and if they seem too
dry, a little milk will do to thin
them, with a large teaspoonful of
salt and lastly the whites of three
eggs beaten, stiff, and thoroughly
beaten in with the potatoes. Heat
your griddle and put butter and
lard in equal proportions on it, and
fry the cakes until they are brown.
Make them a third larger than the
ordinary size of the pancake.
Have one quart of milk in a stew
pan over the fire, just ready to boil;
stir into this four tablespoonfuls of
Indian meal which has been moist
ened in cold milk enough to render
it of a lumpless, creamy consistency ;
after it is thoroughly mixed in hot
milk add three tablespoonfuls of
molasses; add a teaspoonful of salt
after it has boiled rapidly ten or fif
teen minutes, and you are readj to
pour it into a well-buttered pudding
dish. It will bake so as to be as
good as the average in two hours,
but remember those brick oven pud
dings that sat in the oven all night
and were the better for it, and, after
it has baked thoroughly, set in the
hot closet of your range and give it
all the time you can, the more the
better. Six hours is three times as
well as two. Add butter now and
then to keep the top from burning.
Chop two pounds of lean beef very
fine; chop and pound in a mortar
half a pound of bacon and mix it
with the beef. Season it with pep
per and salt, a small nutmeg, the
A. f
rated rind of a lemon, the iuice of
a quarterof it, a heaping tablespoon-
iui ui jjarsui, muiueu line; or it can oe
seasoned with an additional table-
spoonful of onion ; or if no onion or

savory and thvme. Bind all these
together with two eirs: form them
into a roll; surround the roll with
buttered paper, which tie securely
around it; then cover itwith a paste
made oi flour and water; bake two
hours; remove the paper and crust;
serve it hot with toniato sauce or
brown ; gravy,- This,mayJ)e made
with raw, or under-dressed . meat.
If the meat is not raw. but under-
dressed surround the roll with pie
crust; bake and serve with tomato
sauce, or any of the brown sauces,
poured in the bottom of the dish:
potato croquettes may be served
arounu it.

Is a 36-column newspaper, and is
acknowledged to be one of the hand
somest in the State.
It is Democratic in its politics, but
doesn't wear any collar. It lias opinions
and expresses them.
Lays no claims to being the ablest
paper in the State or the best in the
South, but has the comfortable assurance
that as a North Carolina weww-paper it is
something of a success.
It would be pleased to have more
advertisements and more subscribers,
