GRANT AS A FATHER.
Some of the Traits Shown by lllm In
"Gen. Grant as a Father" la the title
of an Interesting sketch in the Youth's
Companion. It Is by the general's
ton , Frederick D. , and is well worth
reading. Here is a part of it : I novcr
heard my father say an unjust , cruel
word , even to those who sought to in
jure him. What was most impressed
upon my mind during my youth , and
afterward , was my father's qualities of
truthfulness , loyalty and honor , his un
selfishness and his charitableness to
ward all. If an unkind word had been
uttered or an uncharitable thought ex
pressed in our homo circle , our great
est care was to keep the fact from the
knowledge of our father , because we
realized that such expressions from one
of his family would cause him deepest
sorrow. From our earliest years we
could not bear to have him think us
unworthy. His children never feared
him , as ho was far from being sterner
or severe with us , but we respected
him , loved him with deep affection ,
and wo dreaded to disappoint him.
Gen. Grant was considered by his
countrymen a great commander , firmly
pushing through overwhelming obsta
cles on to his goal ; he was known to
his children to be a tender-hearted , In
dulgent and most considerate parent ,
over willing to sacrifice his pleasure
for the happiness of those about him ,
oven to the smallest and most unim
portant member of the household. A
( stressed or troubled expression In the
ace of ono near to him was sure to bo
noticed , and called forth his sympa-
hy. His was the character of a sim
ple , unaffected Christian gentleman ,
and his descendants may well try to
mltate him. In Gen. Grant's home wo
cncw the gentle and just and chival
rous nature which the public recog
nized when ho gave orders at Vlcks-
> urg and Appomattox that his own
victorious soldiers should make no
lomonstratlon of triumph over the do-
eat of the opposing army. We , his
amily , knew best of all that spirit of
warm good will which caused him to
say to Gen. Lee : "Lot your soldiers
retain their horses and mules ; they
will need themto cultivate their

The crew of a British steamer have
recently witnessed u remarkable sight
wher steaming in the South Atlantic.
The rare phenomena the sun dog
which may not be seen once in a
century , appeared in the sky one even
ing at sunset. It was first seen by
the captain , who noticed the sun set
ting In the cast instead of the west ,
and was confirmed by the steersman ,
who reported another sun to port and
two more in different directions. This
marvelous sight of four suns in the
sky gave the sailors a tremendous
shock , as the sky was perfectly cloud
less and the vision unexpected.
