Heme Life ! France.
Foreigners are apt to take their im
praMions solely from Paris, which at
tracts them by its brilliancy. Floating
on the surface, they see a great deal of
gayety and folly and vice, and hastily
conclude that this is French morality
and French life. Bat Paris is not France ;
nor, indeed, do they see but a very small
part of Paris. They have no access to
Freach society of the better class. One
must disengage himself from this first
impression, if he would judge justly of
the real character of the French people.
Leaving aside these frivolities of a gay
capital, and seeking the French in those
interiors which are generally closed to
foreigners, we find there a very strong
feeling of home, in both senses of that
word. First, the love of place, of a fixed
habitation what phrenologists call the
organ of locality is largely developed
in the French nature. They love their
country, and never leave it but with re
luctance. Hence they make poor colo
nists. While the English and Germans
emigrate, the French can hardly be torn
from their native soil, And not only
the country, but the province, the city,
or the little village, which gave them
birth, is always dear to them. Go into
the country, and you find families that
have always lived in the same place.
Generation after generation has come
and gone, and still they cling to the old
spot Children, and children's children,
are born and die on the same farm, in tbe
same moss-grown cottage, beneath the
same thatched roof where their fathers
lived and died. This single fact the
love of a fixed alwde speaks much for
the home feeling of the French, especi
ally to Americans, since it appears in
such strange contrast to the migratory
habits of their countrymen.
With this love of the birthplace, the
desire to have a little spot, however hum
ble, where one may become rooted to the
soil, is one of the strongest passions of a
Frenchman. It exists among the poor
est peasantry. Even the common labor
ers, who go to Paris to find employment,
always have it at heart to return to their
native village. The popular songs which
the workmen sing at their tasks almost
all have reference to the country to the
spot they have left, and to which they
hope some day to return. This is their
safeguard amid the temptations of a great
city. Out of their little savings they
send back something to keep alive the
old people, or to kelp their younger
brothers. And the height of their am
bition is, by many years of hard labor, to
save enough to return, and buy a plot of
ground, and build a little cottage, where
they May pass the rest of their days.
Every family which is a little easy in
its circumstances, though it may spend
half the year in Paris, has somewhere in
the country, buried among the trees, a
retreat which often has been in the fam
ily for generations, and which is cher
ished with as much love and pride as
any baronial castle. Only extreme ne
cessity can induce them to part with it.
It Is the first spot which the children
lean to love, and which remains equally
dear in manhood and old age. True, the
same families, when they come up to
Paris to spend the winter, live in apart
ments, and this has been thought un
favorable to domestic life. But is it
half so much so as that life of boarding
houses and hotels, (a thing unknown in
France, but so common in America), in
which there can be no such thing as do
mestic privacy f
As to the home in its more elevated
maaahur, not confined to the place, but
including the feeling which unites a
family In affection and in a common in
terest, on circametance contributes
greatly to preserve and strengthen this
among the Freach. It is the social equal
ity of Hembera as the same family. To
this ao contrast can be greater than that
of families la America. A farmer la .New
Xaglaaw has half a dozen sons; one ro
mains on -the old homestead; one goes to
a city and becomes a rich merchant;
another to callage, and eaters a profes
sion. Thus ia a few years the relative
position f efferent saembers of the fam
ily ia chanted; aesae are rich, others
a may become distiagsished,
ethers are wholly uahnawn. '

exists, to a great extent, in tbe better
classes. Ia commerce and in tbe liberal
professions, the son takes the father's
place, and all keep along on about the
same level. Tbe paternal roof is the ral
lying point for all; and when the child
ren group themselves about the aged
parents, not divided by any great dispar
ity of condition, they are bound togeth

The Blae Handkerchief;
A Traaalafloa frosa the Freach.
About the end of October, last year, I
was returning on foot from Orleans to
the Chateau de Bardy. A regiment of
the foreign guard was marching abreast
of me and on the same road. I had
hastened my steps to hear the military
music, which I liked so much; but tbe
band ceased playing; a few taps of tbe
drum from afar off alone marked the
measured step of the soldiers.
After an hour's march I saw the regi
ment enter a small field surrounded by a
clump of fir trees. I asked a captain
whom I knew if they were about to ex
ercise. No, said he to me, they arc about to
judge and probably to shoot a soldier of
my company for having robbed the man
with whom he was quartered.
What! said I, to judge, condemn and
execute at once?
Yes, said he, it is according to our
articles of capitulation.
For him this was unanswerable, as
though all had been provided for in the
capitulation the crime, tbe punishment
the 'justice and even the humanity.
Besides, if you are curious, added the
Captain, I will get you a place. It won't
I bad always a passion for these sad
spectacles, and I imagined that I could
learn what death was by the face ol the
dying. I followed the Captain.
The regiment was formed in a hollow
square; behind the rear rank, on the
edge of the wood, some soldiers were
diggintr. a grave. They were commanded
by a first lieutenant, for everything in a
regiment is done with order, and there
is a certain discipline in digging a man's
In the center of the square eight offi
cers were sitting on drum-heads, the
ninth, on the ritjht and moro forward,
was writing a few word? upon his knees,
but carelessly, and only that a man
should not be killed without some for
malities. The accused was called. He was a
tall young man, of a noble and honest
face. A woman advanced with him, the
only witness who was to testify in the
case, but when the Colonel was about to
interrogate this woman :
"It's useless," said the soldier; "I will
confess all. I stole the handkerchief
from this woman's house."
The Colonel. You, Pierre! you were
always an honest fellow.
Pierre. It is true, my Colonel, I have
always tried to satisfy my officers ; and
it was not for myself that I stole it -'twas
The Colonel. Who is this Mene?
Pierre. Tis Marie who lives yonder
in my village near Arenburg, where the
great appletree is. I shall never see her
The Colonel. I do not understand
you, Pierre; explain yourself.
Pierre. Well, my Colonel, read this.
And he handed to him the following
letter, every word of which is present to
my memory :
Mt Good Friend Pierbe: I profit
by the recruit Arnold, who is engaged in
your regiment, to send you this letter
and a silk purse which I have made for
you. I was obliged to hide myself from
my father while I made it, for he con
tinually scolds me for loving, you so
much, and says that you will not come
back. You will come back, won't you?
But if you never return, I shall love you
all the same. I promised myself to you
the day you picked up my blue hand
kerchief at the dance in Arenburg, and
brought it back to me. When shall I
see you again? What makes me happy
is, that they say you are esteemed by
your superiors and beloved by your com
rades. Bht you have still two years of
service. Get through them quick, for
then we will be married. Adieu, my
good friend Pierre.
Your dear Mart.
P. S. Try to send me something from
France, not that I am afraid that I shall
forget you, but that I may wear it al
ways. Kiss what you send me. I am
sure that I shall find the place of your
When the letter was read Pierre re
sumed. Arnold, said he, gave me this
letter last night when my billet of qaar
ters was received. All night I could
not sleep. I thought of the village and
of Marie. She asked me for somethiasr
from Fraace. I had ao moaey; I had
pledged my pay for three months for my
brother aad my couaia, who had returned
home a 'few days before. This morning
when I arose to leave, I opened the
window. A blue handkerchief was
hanging oa a liae; it resembled that of
Marie's; it was the same color, the same
white strips. I was weak enough to
take it aad put it ia my sack. I went
down iato the street; I repeated of what
I had dene, aad was about returning to
the house when this woman ran after
me. The handkerchief was found upon
me, that ia the truth. The capitulation
deasaeMs that I be shot. Shoot bm, but
do net despise me.
The judges could set restrain their
ta voea was takes, he
four francs. The Captain gave them to
him. I saw then he advanced toward
the woman, to whom the blue handker
chief had been rectorcd, and I heard
these words: "Madam, hore are four
francs; I don't know if your handker
chief is worth'any more, but even should
it be, I pay dear enough for it, and you
ought to excuse me for tbe difference."
Then taking the handkerchief he kissed
it and gave it to the Captain. "My Cap
tain," said be, "Id two years you will
return to our mountain.1: if you go near
to Arenburg, ask for Marie, give her this
blue handkerchief, but do not tell her
how I bought it"
He then knelt in prayer, and marched
with a firm step to his execution.
I retired then and entered the wood,
that I might not witness this cruel
tragedy. A few musket shots soon ap
prised me that all was over. I returned
an hour afterward ; tbe regiment had de
parted; all was quiet; but in skirting the
edge oi the wood to regain the road, I
perceived at a lew paces before me traces
of blood and a heap ol earth, freshly
made. I took a branch of fir tree and
made a sort of cross; I placed it ou tbe
grave of poor Pierre, forgotten now by
all the world exceptjnyself and perhaps
A Happy Family.
A Richmond (Ind ) newspaper vouches
lor the truth of the following story:
"The lion has not yet been observed to"
Ho down with the lamb, but something
equal to it has happened. A white cat,
with lour young kittens, set up house
keeping in a box where there happened
to be two young rats. Instead of de
vouring them, as would have been natural,
she adopted them, and afforded them the
6ame nourishment that she supplied to
her kittens. One of the kittens and one
of the rats died. Yesterday we called
to see the happy family, and found the
three kittens and the rat drawing their
daily sustenance in happy promiscuous
ness. The mother cat bestowed frequent
caresses upon her little ones, and the rat
came in for a full share. It seemed to
enjoy the 'love lick,' and responded in
as affectionate manner as possible for a
rat. After all, as n matter of prudence,
that young rat had better move
lore his tail gets too long."

The People's Common Sense Medical
Adviser, in plain English, or Medicine
Simplified: By R. V. Piekce, 31. D.,
Counsclor-in-Chief of tho Board of Phy
sicians and Surgeons, at the World's
Dispensary, Buffalo, New York:. The
above Work a book of about nine
hundred large pages, profusely illus
trated with wood engravings and colored
plates, and well and strongly oound
will be sent, postpaid, to any address,
for one dollar and fifty cents making
it the cheapest book ever offered to the
American people. Other books treat
iiig of domestic medicine, of like size
and style of binding, and not nearly as
well illustrated, with no colored plates,
and some ot them containing no pre
scriptions and makiDg known no means
of self-cure for the diseases which they
discuss, sell from three dollars and a half
to five dollars. Were Dr. Pierce's Work
not published by the author, printed and
bound with his own machinery, and were
it sold through agents, as other like
works are, the price of it would not be
less than four dollars. For when tbe
publisher pays the author a fair price for
his production, then adds a profit to his
investment large enough to satisfy him
self and compensate him, not only for
his labor, but also for the risk of pecu
niary loss wnich he assumes in taking
the chances of the enterprise proving a
success, and when the State, county and
canvassing agent has each received his
profit, they have added to the expense of
a book, that originally cost about $1.25,
so much thf t the' people have to pay not
leas thaa $4.00 for it The People's
Medical Adviser, on the contrary, is
placed within the pecuniary reach of all
classes by the author, who adopts the
plan of the Grangers, dispensing uith
middle men and giving the benefit of
their profits to tbe people, offering Lis
book at a price a little above actual cost
of publication. That those desiring the
book may run no risk of losing their
moaey ia sending it through the mails,
the author advertises that moaey ad
dressed to him at Buffalo. X. Y- and
inclosed ia registered letters, may be at
bis risk of lose. The author's large cor
respondence with the people upon medi.
eel matters, which we' are credibly
informed frequently exceeds three hun

Wc call the attention of our reader to
the advertisement of the Moberly Gift
Concert. We are aware that many so
called but dissimilar enterprises have
been organized fo the purpose of ob
taining money under tne pretence of
giving so much back in large gifts but
the gifts advertised were never actually
distributed to ticket holders. Thoje
who are operating such enterprises are
doing so for the purpose of making
money, and when they find that a draw
ing is impossible they resort to postpone
ments, or even worse, to compromise.
This has had its influence in destroying
public confidence, and many are prone
to unhesitatingly condemn all such
enterprises as being alike. But the Gilt
Concert to be given in Moberly, Mo., on
tbe 31st day of July, unlite many so-
called schemes, has for its foundation tbe
accomplishment of a very charitable
result, and the citizens of Moberly who
are conducting the enterprise, and whose
honor and reputation and means are
pledged to a fair and honorable distribu
tion, have no interest whatever, not even
to the extent of a salary.
They have very uenerously donated
their time and their funds to aid one of
their fellow-citizens, whom they induced
to construct one of the most magnificent
hotel buildings in tbe State of Missouri.
When the panic came. Mr. McQitaid was
compelled to borrow money to complete
tbe structure he had begun, which he
has done in a style that makes it the
pride of the city, and this plan has been
instituted to dispose of the property at
its actual cost, and the other priz.-s are
The people of Moberly aru justly
proud ot the thrift and enterprise of
their city. Its rapid growth and com
mercial interests have characterized it as
the "Magtc.City" of Missouri.
A priyate fund has been raised to bear
the exense of conducting the concert,
and the money realized from the sale of
tickets is deposited in the city banks to
the credit of the ticket holders, so that
in the event tbe concert should fail, all
money will bo refunded. We believe
the people of Moberly will redeem their
pledge, and you cannot invest one dollar
in a safer enterprise; you are sure to get
the benefit of your ticket, though you
putchise an unlucky number. For fur
