The Fanner's "Wife.
tJp with the birds In the early morning:
The dewdrop glows like a precious Rem ;
Ecautiful tints In the skies are dawning,
But she's never a moment to look at tliera.
The men are wnntin.:; their breakfast early,
She must not linger, she lnut nut wait ;
For words that are sharp and looks that are
Are what men give them when meals are late.
Oh, plorious colors the clouds are turning.
If she would b'.it look over hills and trees ;
But here are the cJLhei and here is the ctiuru-
Those things' must always yl.tld to these.
The world is filled with the wine of beauty,
If she could pauS'i and drink it in ;
Eut pleasure, she fays, must wait for duty
Neglected work Is committed sin.
The day grows hot and the fcnndsgrow weary ;
Oil, for an hour to cool her head
Oat with the birds in the v lads so cheer) 1
Hut she iiiisst gxt dinner and bake the bread.
The busy men in the l.ny fli ld working-,
If they saw her sitting with Idle hand,
Would think her lai'y, and cull it .shirking-,
Aijd she could never make them understand.
They do not know thjt the heait wit'ain her
Hungers for beauty and things sublime ;
They only know Unit they want their dinner
Plenty of it and Just "on time."
And after the sweeping and churning and bak
ing And dinner dishes are all put by,
Bhe sits and sews, though her head Is aching,
Till time f jr supper .nd "chores" draw d:k'.i.
Her boys at school must look like others,
She says, as she patches their frocks and hose ;
For tUo world D quick to censure mothers
For the least neglect of children's clothes.
Iler husband comes from field of labor,
He gives no piaise to his weiiry wife.
She's done no more than has her neighbor ;
Tis the lot of all iu country life.
But after the ttnfe and weary tussle
With life is done, and she lies at rest,
The nation's brain and heart and muscle
Her sous and dal.ieis shail call her blest.
Aial I think !he sweetest joys of Heaven,
The laiest bliss of eternal life,
And the fairest crow n of all will be given
Unto the w ay-worn farmer's w ife.
California Farmer.
Joel Newman clcc-MoJ that he could not
be a farmer. His father was ck-votcd to
iigricultual puiauita. and beemtd to like
the busiuess; but t!iat was n roason why
lie (Joclj should adc; t that blanch of
industry as-a icn. I lo tispired to

cluded to choose a iirofcssion, and con
sumed the remaining years of Ids minor
ity in determining what it should be.
Oa the very day that he was twenty-o:;-?
he decid-d that all im-io! taut cjiu-s-tiuu,
and soiemnly consecrated himself to
the healing art. This Avas certainly an
era in his existence, and destined to ex
ticise a lasting iullueiice oa his future
1'ut tlp-re Avas yet ar.rilher viiul j-oint to
be U rm iaetl what .ai ticuiar medical

Having considered the iii'.iinsio value
ef water as an clement, l.a f.iaily threw
a casting veto in favor of hi"drojathy.
.Mr. s'ewiiiiin, his father, wiiiing to grat
ify his sou's wishes, accordingly packed
him oil" to a 'water-cure"' esl.ibli .hinc:it
wiiere he mig.U learn theory and practice
at the same time.
Jcel entered tijon I113 duties with an
awful sense of its re? portabilities I ressiug
r.pou him. He realized, or tried to,
that henceforth he avus to deal with that
potcut agent water, wl.icli avuuKI kill or
cure according to the way in which it was
Place a patient in the water up to his
chin, and lie may remain there fifteen or
twenty minutes without sustaining iuju
ry; but," said, the professor with increas
ing solemnity, "just rcvei so the method
of application, and put Lis head in for
half the time specified, and the conse
quence Avill be serious."'
Joel ventured to suggest that death
might be the result of such a procedure.
"You are correct," returned the profes
sor encouragingly, "ami that proves that
water is a powerful element, and requires
to be handled cautiously. Many lives
have been lost by water."
"At the time of the flood, for instance,"
remarked Joe!, timidly.
'Precisely, sir; but it was used in that
case to elfect a moral cure. It will be
Well to observe, perhaps, that Ave do not
prescribe for such complaints at this es
tablishment. AVc ileal Avholly with phys

The doctor paused a moment, and then
pointed to a large manufactory not far
"There is another Avonderful application
of water," he resumed, and xvill give you
some faint conception f its power'
"It buoys up great ships, also," added
"Ah, yes; it is truly an important cle
ment in commerce."
"Sailors literally lie on it," continued
our hero.
"Young gentleman, you arc to learn at
this institution the sublime art of apply
ing this great power to the cure of dis
eases. 1 shall not develop this science to
you all at once, but gradually as your
mind expands. You may now go and
put half a dozen xvet sheets upon that
delicate voutig man xvho "came this morn
ing." 'Shall the water be entirely cold?"'
aked Joel, with a shiver, for it was a freez
ing January ctay.
"Apply it iu its natural state, Dr. New
man," replied the instructor with a gra
cious smile, "and don't heed any squeam
ish objections that any patient may make.
In all cases you Aill please follow di
rections to the letter. Tl.e young man
who Avill bo. made the subject of your
treatment is somewhat deranged iu his
mental faculties, cons-quetitiy ids eccen
tricities and peculiarities tue not to be
noticed. You will lind him in number
Almost overwhelmed with the contem
plation of the power of water, Joel sought
the room indicated, lie fouud there a
young man about his own age, "who, al
though somewhat pale,' h I not manifest any

per Avorks, and took measures according
ly; he deliberately locked the door and
put the- key hi his pocket. This proceed
ing on his part caused the patient to di
late his eyes anel favor him Avith a long
and by no means friendly stare.
"Pray, sir, why do you lock my door?" he
said at length, striving to speak calmly.
"iSo that Ave may be secure from inter
ruption." "And why do you desire to be secure
from interruption in my roomf" a&ked
the patient with some severity of manner.
"I. at present, have control of this in
stitution," returned the other resolving to
suitably impress the mind of the invalid
vnlh a realizing sene of his importance.
"The deuco you have!"
'Please, don't bo profane, sir! Prepare
yourself for treatment, said Joel, with
"Yes ; take oS your clothes."
"You can't you comprehend?''
"And what do you intend to do?"
"Apply six wet sheets in succession;
give you a copious shoAver bath ; soak your
fee t in cold water; wrap your head in a
saturated towel; and
"Let me inform you. sir, that I'm not
in the right mood for joking at present;
so you will please vacate the premises
immediately," interrupted the invalid
" i ake oil' your coat, that's a good fel
low," added young Avater-cure, soothing
ly. '""Will you go, or shall I throw you out
of the window f ' reiterated the patient,
"Come, let us be reasonable. You have
come here to be cured, and the professor
has given the treatment of your peculiar
case into my hands; so let us proceed at
once to business. Here, you perceive, are
the proper materials to work Avith cold
Avater, sheets, and so forth."
"Are you a fool or a Avag?" usked the
person thus appealed to.
"I am :m humble disciple of Prcsnitz,
aid hope to be the means, with the bless
ing of Heaven, of restoring you to perfect
health. Prepare for the sheet."
"You are an entire stranger to me, f.nd
iierhaps you are ignorant oi the fact that
.am one of the principals of this estab
lishment," resumed the patient.
Joel had heard that it was a good plan
lo humor insane persons, so he concluded
that it would be the best policy to let the
invalid have his own way.

in Avhich to wrap the sick man, and the
icy water was trickling through his ling

that there was something sinister iu the
expression of his eyes.
The gai merit Avas thrown with a jerk
upon tue back of a chair, while the own

iu a resolute and cminods manner.
Dr. Joel began t have suspicions that
the man's intention was not quite friend
ly, and not knowing how far his insanity
might carry him, concluded that there
was not a moment to l c lost, and to open
ing the saturated sheet with a sudden
movement, ran forward and threw it over
his hca 1. and ch.--ped his arm.? about his
victim, thus eilectually pinioning him.
The sick mm Avas for a moment rend
ered helpless, and was in a partial state of
suffocation, Avhilc the chilling element,
Avhich had been subjected to a January
atmosphere, xvas pouring down his per
son, striking a deadly shiver to the mar

The poor crazy gentlemnn, finding his

of any cause, in keeping the highly
medicated sheet e.ver his patient's head,
notwithstanding his gurgling, muttered
imprecations and continued I'oundering.
llendered completely de.-perate at
length by the agonic- of suffocation, the
derangcel gentleman succeeded, by a
mighty convulsion, in shaking oil' his per.
secutor, and then rang the bell furiously.
The peremptory summons was instant
ly answered, and steps were heard on the
"IJurst open the door,'" shouted the In
oatie. The order Avas immediately obeyed, and
two attendants et,te:ing, fcund the parties
staring at each other panting for breath.
"Seize this man and prepare him for

tively. "He is a maniac, and has just had
a violent paroxysm of madness."
No sooner said than done. The two at
tendants fastened upon voung water-cure
like poverty to an honest man, amtiiewas
soon divested of clothing, Jiotvvitlisiauding

some mistake.

"Who is he?" rucked our hero of one cf
the attendants.
"Why, that's Dr. Fiood, one of the prin

prompt rejoinder.

Joel's teeth eh. ill .red more violently than
ever, and l.e IV It cheap eiio-ugh to be sold
