We crush back too often the pleasant speech that would help to strengthen our faith in human'nature. Daily we might do much more to help and lighten the burdens mother has to carry the dear one who never wearies in doing for Iter, children, who' seldom repay ia every measure the wreath of affectiou showered npon them. ' How pleasant and cheering would be tbe impulsive caress, the cordial thanks, the 'thoughtful act, the encouraging smile, that would lighten the heart, and give her renewed ambition to work for those she loves. This lack of appreciation drives back so many warm impulses. How many devoted wives quietly wring their hands lor a Kind expression of the love so fondly plighted them at the altar, to whom a handsome establishment and means provided, are not all who yearn for the helpful words, that they may feel all their untiring efforts to please have not .. been unootioed, or thrown away-- imple acts, simiile words, and vet how often they are left undone, and left un said, and the want of their expression. added another paid to hearts that already suffer enough. ; Do unto , otbert as ye would be done by.

Cheer each other. The heart goes out in a rain of gratitude to the ones who bring -us comfort and needed encouragement, and help us to bear our troules. We all yearn for a little human love, care and sympathy. Many a woman loses heart when she never hears a word of praise from her husband. ' A celebrated actress said: "Yon can never know how cheering to the heart is the round of applause that calls up be fore the curtain and tells us that our efforts to please have been appreciated." We do not stop to realize the good we might do trying to cheer each other and bring more joy into others lives. Do not live purely for self, but strive to do all that lies within the power, to comfort one another, to cheer and brighten the existence of those whom we come in contact.-.- Sensible Vacations. This is a busy world and country. Everywhere can be heard the sounds of reviving industries and business. Men that for weeks and months have been idle are suddenly hearing of calls for their dormant ener gies and powers. Everyone is glad for the changes, indeed we are beginning to hear of wishes for a holiday, or a day off from work or business. Among busi ness men at least this desire should be granted. - We are apt to think that, if we can during the summer's heat and dull ness get away from our business for a few days or a week, all our needs in the way of recreation and rest are fully met. This, however, is not so; the season and time for our vacation and play spells is Dauuy cnosen. we also err in leav ing home for our holidays. , We do not wish to be misunder stood as declaring against the value to us of a change of scenery or place, but the matter is carried too for. We all think that in order to have an en joyable time we must don our best bib and tucker, and away. All the time we are away it is expected of us that we are to be on dress parade, and through the severity of the requirements of etiquette and dress all our enjoyment is lost. The right way for our merchants and clerks to enjoy a vacation best is, to take and give it regularity. Once a week let one of the proprietors or clerks be spared a half a day or an evening, and spend those icw uvunt ub uuue unit meir irienus. There are those of our business men to whom the greatest strangers in town are their own families, especially if there are little cnes there. They are up and away to the calls of their store or office before the eyes of the children are unsealed from sleep, and excepting the few moments at dinner when the children are in from school (and even this they miss if they do not go home promptly at twelvei hardly .'see them from Monday morning until Satur day night; and then they are greatly Burs" pnsea to be toiu mat their sons are be coming roughs.

Kings ton uounor. ' Ovn Dead Presidents. A review of the lives of the different Presidents of the United States is productive of very interesting results. For instance, three of them died on the Fourth of July, John Adams and Jefferson died on the Country's birthday, July 4, 1826, and Monroe died on the 4th of July, 1831. Madison died on the 28th of June, 1835, and his friends were confident, that, he too, would live until July 4th.- If he had, then the second, third, fourth and fifth Presidents would have died on In deuendence day. Tavlor and Andrew Johnson both died in July. Every fourth President until Mr. Hayes' time, was an old bachelor. Van Buren did not draw any of his salary until his terra expired, wiien he drew it out in gold. "U in heap." Tvler died poor, having gone into the rebellion, and was one of the Confederate Commissioners at Montgom ery. John Quiucy Adams lived the long est; he was 90 years old when he died.

While from the Eastern side of the conntry comes daily the cheering and happy tidings of better times near at iiand, uie merciless juggernaut 1 1 pov erty, loaded with pig-tailed ChineHe, cpn tinues to crush under its broad-spread wheels the workingmen of California. The molten oil of monopoly lubricates its ponderous axles, and only the power of those who labor for life, united, un divided and with one strong will, can ever turn aside the grinding car. ; . i". From the East we hear every dity thai machinery is humming again, the spin dles buzz and tbe whirr of busy wheels makes music which the workiiigman accompanies with a cheerful whistle while his busy hands work in harmony with the whole, . Not so in California. The Mongolian -' slaves increase by myriads like pestiferous insects ' in a noisome swamp, and fat, well-clothed. Ah Sin marches at early morn to plenty of work, and back to his shelf and his opium pipe at night, while the thi n-vis-aged white man watches and waits for his good time thai never comes, and goes heartlessiy and hopelessly back every night to the ill-clad and hungering dear ones, who look to him for the comforts that he can no more bring than he could bottle the sunshine. All people see the evils ef Mongolian ism on this coast. They see the work that should be done by our men and wo men, boys nd girls, performed by ani mals who can make money on so much a day as is necessary to keep a white man alive. And, for grumbling about this state of affairs, the white man is asked almost the question, "Why cannot you aud your family, your neighbors and their lamuies, men and women, boys and girls, babies and all, huddle together like pigs in a pen, as the Chinese do; live on rats and rice, eschew all ideas of life's holidays and a pleasant hour once in a while, and work at the some wages, and make money, as the Chinese do? This is practically the question. All people can see that Chinese cheap labor carries itself into the ramifications of life on this coast and makes idlers of our boys and do-nothings of our girls, when they should have an inheritance in the land of their fathers of, at least, whole some, well-paid work. - Mongolianism is permeating the Iwne and sinew of the land with vicious, fear ful habits and sin sunk ; to its lowest depths, and tbe whole mass is cooking in a pot that will some day boil over and scald the country and poison the air with the direst and most terrible revolution, unless Mongolianism is checked. Capi tal knows this and is afraid. Then why does it not enlist oa the right side and help the workman onto his feet again, ami make him its friend, and thus avert the evils that are otherwise sure to come, and moke the country hearty and whole some and happy again. .- At no time should the workingman or the capitalist forget this, and when Con gress assembles, in six weeks from now, let all work together to induce that body to do something to save us from this upas oreatn irom uiuna. A RkjcaskabiiK Monstrosity. With all of its other wonders. North Carolina has now given birth to one of the most remarkable monstrosities ever known to the medical world in this or any other age. , This phenomenon has been dis covered to exist a few miles from this place, It is stated by the father, a negro iving some ten or twelve miles south of this place, that this prodigious mih naturae gri almost counter-part of tbe frog, with sands, feet and in form of body very near similar to that of this am phibious animal. . . In habits almost the same, it exhibits a decided preference for the watery element, and at night, when croalung, guttural notes of the number less neptuuian choirs are re-echoed and reverberated tliroughthe - wood ' land marshes.this would-be aquatic peals forth its strange, unnatural song; which the father avers is almost the same in in tonation and sound as that produced by the pond irog, only on a coarser and louder scale, keeping it up until about the hour ot midnight, when he, she or it lulls him. her or itself into ouietness and sleep. , It has been on exhibition in this place for the past few days. The creature lias attracted a great deal of attention, and a number of medical men from dis tances have come here in the past few days to examine it Mobtalitt . lit India fbom Snake Bites. Readers will be -startled to learn that, according to a return published in January, 1878, no fewer than 22,000 hu man beings lost their lives in India dnr ing the previous year by snake bites, This lamentable sacrifice of life is occa sioned not only by the cobra and krait. but by other deadly species, and notably by a snake barely a foot long, the Echtt carinata, known also by the name of Knp- per or f oorsa. ; The effects produced by snake-bite vary according to the spec its. Thus, the bite of the cobra produces coma and speedy death, whereas the poison of others, such as Russell's viper, produces excessive pain, convulsions and usually death. - The bite of Echitcarhiala causes blood to ooze from the pores of the victim, who, after lingering for a week or more, succumbs to the fatal poison. The number of harmless snakes is enormously in excess of the venomous species, else the mortality would unques tionably be greater even than it is; and it is to be deplored that more strennous measures, are not taken to eradicate, as far as possible, a tribe of animals so deadly to man.

"Swing a mint measur around any dsy and you'll catch quart of them." ? Tho Deata-TrEp. Mr. Warren, the mate of the whidebl.'i, Roberta, was loved and respected i v every man in the vessel, with the exet p tion of Harry Thompson-a tall, ,Wk browed youth, f an evil, quarrelsome deposition. Thompson hod taken a dis like to the mate from the moment he dis covered the latter was a man calculated to win the esteem of his crew. He (Thompson) had hoped to excite the men to mutiny; but when he perceived how kindly they were treated by the first officer, he knew to accomplish his pur pose he must first remove Warren from his path. Night and day, therefore, he watched for an opportunity to take the life of the mate to strike the murdorens blow m such a way as to avoid detection. Days, weeks and months glided on ; the ship rounded the stormy Cape Horn, bowling along toward the sperm-whale cruisuig ground Off the Gallipagos, and still the dark-browed villain waited for a chance to accomplish his hellish work. One evening, just after sundown, while the hands were eating their, supper, the well-known cry of "There she blows!-' came down from the masthead, causing every man to spring to his feet Whales were discovered about a league off the lee bow; and the captain, havini? crAorA the main-yard hauled back, darted aloft with bis glass slung over his shoulder. Soon after he was ordering his mates to lower their boats. . With a glad shout the men sprung to the davits, the roues slid thronirh tackle-blocks, and the boats, dropping into the water, were soon manned. "Give way, lads!" cried the mate, seiz ing his steering oar. "Give way with a Willi . "Ay, ay," responded the crew, and the voice of Thompson, who pulled the bow oar. was the loudest A strange light shone in his evil vs! his teeth were compressed, he seemed to think the moment for which he had waited so long was at hand. The four boats glided swiftly over the long, heavy swells so common in the Pacific, the mate taking the lead, and in a short time the spoutinar of a whale was heard a few fathoms ahead. - "Your paddles men your paddles!" gritted ' the first officer through his clenched teeth. "Stand np. Hal!" Hal was the boats teerer or harnooner. He sprang lightly to his feet, his iron ready in his hand. But just as the mate was on the point of giving the familiar order, "Give it to him! " the monster of the deep turned flukes and disappeared. Warren fairly turned pale with dis appointment, j - "There, we've lost him! " he cried. "I think you're mistaken, sir," said the harpooner. "Yonder," pointing to the mast, "is the top of the moon's disc just rising above the sea. We'll have light enough, I reckon, to see that humpbacked chap when he comes up again." "Ay, ay, you are right, Hal," answered the mate, rubbing his hands. "I never before whaled it by moonlight; but we'll have a chance to do so now, for 111 keep on that fellow's track until we get a chance to plant an iron in his hump, if it takes me all night, This is our first lowering since we sailed, and blow me if I don't mean that it shall be a lucky one. Pull ahead!" - .; -.- . The crew obeyed, and in the course of half an hour the spout of the whale was seen rising like a jet of liquid silver about a quarter of a mile ahead of the boat. The moon had by this time risen high above the horizon, sprinkling water-stars all over tbe surface of the sea. fxill aueaii ntreien ronraen rs, m lads!" cried the mate. "We'lLfioan Lave an iron in that chap ahead." The men pulled with a will, and in a short time the boat was within six fath oms of the monster. "Stand up, Hal!" And the boatsteerer iiprang to his foot. "Give it to him!" The harpoon clove the air with a rush ing sound, and was buried to the socket in the hump. Then came the order to "stern;" andasths whale sounded, the mate and boatsteerer changed places. The boat was now rushing through the water with the speed of lightning, the spray foaming and boiling around her bow, and her gunwales forward almost on a level with the water. With a triumphant flash lighting his snake-like eves. Thompson stooped side ways from his thwart to uniash one of the lances secured to the side of the boat. "Quick! Quick, my man! Hurry np with that lance!" exclaimed the mate, stretching out his hand to receive the weapon. "Ay, ay, sir," answered Thompson in a hoarse voice; and suddenly rising np with the deadly steel in his hand, he he contrived to stumble in such a man ner aaawould, he hoped, cause the blade to pierce the bosom of the mate. Ihe latter, However, avoided the stroxe by stepping nimbly to one side, when with pretended anxiety Thompson quick ly rose, declaring that he never could bave forgiven uis own awKwaroness it the mate had suffered from it "Don't mention it," exclaimed Warren, "Aocideots will sometimes happen. You were not to blame for stumbling," and he took the lance from the other s hand. Foiled in this attempt upon the life of the man he hated, Thompson quickly re solved to make another. 1h slackening of the line soon afforded him the oppor- . ' . 1...

There goes the lan eel" he continued aloud, as Warren hurled the weapon, with unerr ing aim, into the monster's body. :- Up went the flukes of the whale, and the next moment he disappeared a sec ond time beneath the green chambers of theses. ' Then, as the line ran whipping through the chocks of the boat, the kinks which had been arranged by Thompson to en snare the life of the mate, flew upward like wreathing serpents, forming a "bight," which, glancing past the first of ficer as lie dodged to avoid it, caught tightly around the neck of the villain who had prepared the infernal trap, sod pulled him overboard with the velocity of a cannon ball. The mate instant! v severed the line with a blow of his hatch et, but Thompson was never soon again by the crew of the Koberts. A few days afterwards the whale was recaptured, killed and towed to the fchip. Graham Bread Is History.
