Clemehzy Jane Fowler
Glrcs According to Her Blessings.
There was a missionary woman
visiting at Miss Rogersee , and she
said if tho women folks would get
together she'd talk to them about
how the heathens lived. Well , I
haint never hankered extry much
after tho heathens. To be sure , 1'vo
felt it my duty to do as welljby them
as possible , so have paid my yearly
dues for tho support of the Gospel
among the homo and foreign
heathens without a murmur. But I
never set any very great store by the
heathens themselves , didn't care
much about them , nor returned mis
sionaries either , seeing as how you
may prepare for a collection every
time one puis in an appearance.
I didn't intend going to hear the
ono visiting at Miss Eogerses , but
Sister Rogers sent over a special in
vitation , and not liking to appear
unfriendty I thought I'd go and set
a spell just to show I had nothing
ngen the cause of foreign heathens.
You know some folks prefer to do
their duty by the home samples only ,
nnd leave the foreigners to shift for
Of course I knew there'd be a col
lection took. I've never gone to a
foreign heathen meeting yet when
there wan 't ; and I've attended con
siderable many in my day " because
my conscience is always nagging mo
on into the belief that it is my duty.
I debated a while in my mind about
how much I should give ; and that
Scripture text , "according as the
Lord hath blessed you , " kept run
ning in my head in spite of me. I
couldn't < deny having been signally
blessed this year. We had had plenty
of rain , and the beauty of it was it
had generally rained nights and Sun
days so there wasn't any time lost.
It certainly was as fine growing
weather as ever you see. The crops
had all been good , fruit middlin , and
the pigs and poultry extry. The
calves i , too , couldn't be complained of
and that old rhyme ,
"What shall I render to my God
For all His gifts to me ? "
that I learned away back in my child
hood , when children were expected to
say hims and Bible verses every Sun
day ' at Sunday school , began to ring
in my head , kind of keeping company
and going linked arms , as it were ,
with the text ' 'According as the Lord
hath blessed thee. " It's curious how
things we learn when we're
little j do run in our heads all
our lives long , whether we
want them or not. That's why I
J stand by the old-fashiohed plan of
having children learn bible verses
and other sensible mottoes to kind
of brace them up in an hour of need ,
which is more than likely to come
afterwards. ; With the generality
these hours of need come frequently ,
a Bight frequenter than we enjoy
having them.
Wanting to put a quietus on that
text and verse which had been run
ning in my head , I just said to my
self , firm and liberal like , "Clemenzy ,
in view of past mercies in the way of
growingweather ' , and good crops ,
and pijrs , and poultry , etc. , you
ought to do the generous thing. .
Just double your thank offering and'
give i 50 cents this time. " But when
I came to consider it mathematically
( for I never was any hand to spend
money rashly ) and reflected that 50
cents ( meant four dozen of eggs at a
shilling ' a dozen , and four dozen of
eggs were 48 in number , which , if I
had set would very likely have
hatched ; out 35 chickens , these at 25
.cents a head ( after they were raised )
would bring me most § 9 it did seem
like a terrible heap to give to a mis-
sionary , woman thatl'dnever laid eyes
on before. I could only hope she
was truly the Lord's servant. Any
how , I gave her the benefit of the
doubt < and carried the 50 cents with
me ; but I took good care to have it
in two quarter pieces so's if the mis-
sionary woman shouldn't seem like
a worthy object I could give just the
half of it. I think we ought to sea
son our charity with discretion.
The hired girl wanted to go to
singing school that night so I helped
her up with the supper dishes and
the milking , and against I got to
Miss Rogerses it was a trifle late.
The missionary woman was already
to begin , so I just laid off my things
quietly and took a back seat out in
the setting-room , though I could
see real well through the folding
doors into the parlor where the lady
sat. She was real pleasant looking.
I made up my mind she was worthy
the minute I laid eyes on her , and
was glad I had decided in favor of
the 50 cents.
She began by saying she wan't a
missionary herself ( which was quite
a blow to me , as I had hoped to see a
real live sample ) but she had spent
a year in Japan and had greatly-
terested in our missionaries there
and the noble work they were doing.
She thought it might be pleasant for
us to hear about them and the peo
ple they had to deal with. She hadn't
talked more than five minutes until
I came to the conclusion it was
worth fully 50 cents not to have
been born a Jap. It would have
been just my luck to have been a
woman , and women in that country-
are not account at all. I don't mind
being a woman here. Indeed , I'd
rather than not , because women
folks do certainly have some advan
tages the sterner sect don't. Butin
Japan the tables are turned. Wom
en folks don't amount to a row of
pins hardly one pin , let alone a
row. A woman has always to walk
a fqw-stejpsTbehirfd 'hecsbusbacid to *
advertKBe'the facfi'that she is Ins in
ferior. May be you think
you'd do without a miBband ,
then , and be an old maid.
But old maids don't appear to have
any showing at all there.
They seem to be abolished
by law , or something of the
kind , ' 'I don't just understand what ,
A woman can't eat at tho same table
with her husband , or oven at the
same time. She has to wait until ho'e
through and take her vittalscold.
Her husband is always dreadfully
ashamed of her and never mentions
he if ho can help it. Ifhoeverhafi
to introduce her anywhere ho apolo-
fizes real polito liko and says : " 1
opo you'll excuse mo for introducing
j ) my fool of a wife" and "fool" in
Japanese means a heap worse than *
it does in English. Though its
enough of an affliction in English ,
goodness knows ! If Susan B. Antho
ny and her clique of woman's right-
ers could only hear how those heath
ens treat their women folks they'd
certainly look upon Japan as fresh
fields. I had the greatest notion to
write Susan about it , urging of her
to sail over and settle matters there
now that she'd got things pretty well
straightened out in this country.
For with women voting out West ,
and settin' on juries , and being law
yers and what notI , think this country
could spare her a spell , and welcome.
It was surely worth fully 50 cents
not to be a Japanese woman , and I
was right glad I had done the square
thing and concluded to give accord
ing to my blessings. , < f
But when I heard how their houses
were furnished I was taken all abnek. '
They aint furnished at all. You have
to sit on the floor , and sleep on the i
floor , and use a wooden pillow , which
would be dreadful hardonmyroomy-
tiz. Specially in winter weather it
would be apt to lay me up entirely.
It did seem it was worth a good deal
more than 50 cents to escape the
roomytiz , and I'd be willing to give
a dollar any day to have some furni
ture in the house , and not have to
alwaj-s sit on the floor. Meantime
the little verse kept pestering me with
" What shall I render to my God
For all His gifts to me ? "
I tried hard not to think about it ,
because I plainly see if that woman
kept on talking and Iliad to tally Tip
my blessings on a hard cash basis ,
I'd bo a financial wreck an hour from
hence. Then there was thatcommand
to give according as the Lord had
blessed kept rising up in my mind in
spite of me. So for peace sake I
agreed with myself to give § 1.50.
Fifty cents for not being born a
Jap , and a dollar for being blessed
with furniture and not having to sit
on the floor. It was worth it , I felt
I had got off cheap at that.
She continued on to relate about
their vittals. They don't use meat ,
owing to their belief in the transmi
gration ofyoursoul. They believe
when a man dies his soul , instead of
going to heaven or elsewhere , locates
in a cow , or horse or other beast.
You see how that doctrine operates.
If you should kill your cow for beet
you couldn'teat a morsel , not even
the tenderest bit of steak in the
whole carcass , not knowing but
what that cow was the residence of
your grandfather , or uncle , or some
other near relative.
I didn't mind the meat doctrine so
much because I could manage to get
along without it after a fashion ,
provided the butter was good. But
my hopes were blasted by theinforma-
tionthat they didn't use either but
ter or meat or cheese. I knew that
would have broken me clear up. I
never could have stood it if I had
been born a Jap. I couldn 't rate
the blessing of good yellow but
ter , and rich thick cream for
coffee and oatmeal in tho morning at
less than 75 cents. It seemed rather
small at such a price , but the way
that blessing bill was running up
was more than 1 could stand , though
it was nothing but fair that I should
try to pay it. You see I'd never
thought before about it being the
Christian religion which gave us com
forts and enabled us women folks to
stand side by side with our brothers
as companions and helpers , instead
of sitting at their feet as servants.
To be sure , I heard in experience
meetings time out of mind , and even
said it myself in a sort of general way ,
that all our blessings came from the
Lord. But law me ! Christian people
, do say a sight of good sounding
things and never stop to think what
they mean. If we'd just put brains
and heart into our words we'd bo
somewhat ' different I'm thinking.
Then there was the climate. It is
so < ' damp where the Japs live that
yon , daresn't leave a book outside
the book-case over night , cause in
the morning it would all be covered
with moisture and in case of a
nice binding would be liable to be
ruined. If you stood an umbrella in
the corner of the hall over night
next morning you'd be apt
to find it covered with a fine
mold. You have to keep all your
clothes packed in tin-lined boxes.t
The missionaries cover these boxes
with cusliions and make lounges of
them. Sometimes their friends send
the missionaries presents of kid
gloves. They have to put them in
glass cans and screw the tops on
tight to keep them from the atmos
phere that's in the air , else they
would mold and be ruined in a short
time. This i dea of canning kid gl o ves
was certainly the beateree. Sez I to
myself : "Clemenzy , you will have to
own up that a decent climate along
with other modern conveniences is
considerable of a blessing. It's worth
60 cents'a day. If you're going to
do the square thing and give accor'd j
ing to your blessings you darsentj j I
leave out the climate. )
Conscience is generally pretty thor- i
ough in all its undertakings , and it >
kept nagging me steadily about
those missionaries. If it was worth
50 cents not to be a Jap , it was
worth twice that much not to be
born a missionary. If you'd been
born a Jap you'd very likely be used
to it by this time. But the mission
aries aint. All the time that text
hammering away at me about giving
according as I had been blessed , and
I was just deciding I ought to give a
dollar because I wasn't a missionary
when the lady said :
"Don't you think , friends , these
nnissionariesever-get'homesick ? No
matter how busy'tbey may Be they1

When the twilight gathers don't you
suppose they know howitis at home ,
then the neighbors dropjring in for
a friendly chat and tFe deaf familiar •
l '

tamp ? "
Sez I to myself : To bo a mission
ary , and live among heathens , and
do without butter , and have to
can your kid gloves ia bad
enough , but homesickness is u good
sight worse. I'd rather have the
lumbago any day than to be home
sick , while you're taking an invoice
of your blessings , Clemenzy , you
can't leave out your not being home
sick. It is certainly worth 05 cents. "
Even at that rate it seems like pay
ing for it with rather small potatoes ,
but when you have a conscience ofu
mathematical turn you have to gc
rather cautious. Nellie Moore , it

The Son of Mrs * President Madisoi
i Wide Awake.
j I ' Mrs. Madison's property , valued ai
$20,000 , was finally divided betweei
Anna and Payne Todd to the lat
ter the money was welcome. Hehac
dissipated his own fortune , hit
mother's private property , anc
Montpellier "he literally drank uj.
the place and the negroes" remarkc
one who knew him well , speaking o.
'Montpellier. President Madison had
labored in vain to reform his habiU
of idleness and extravagance and al
so hod paid many of his debts.
Some of his means he had sunk in
the erection of a strange structure ,
on on eccentric plan , upon his own
estate. Todds-birth , intending that
his mother should there make hei
home. The house originally upon
the place had been burned and he
had built a great tower with a hall
room and state dining room , group
ing around it several small buildings ,
some old , others new ; in one of these
cottages his mother was to live , en
tering the dinging room through a
window. When he built this house
which for lack of money he was un
able to complete he was interested ,
liko many people at that time , in the
subject of silk culture and intended to
turn the place into a silk farm ; and ,
characteristically , before he had
planted his mulberry trees , or hatch
ed his silk worms , he imported a
number of Frenchmen to make the
silk. Toddsbirth is still standing
not far from Montpellier.
Mrs. Madison's last breath brought
forth the words , "My poor boy ! "
nnd it is impossible for any one to
think of her son without a sigh. Step
by step he grew disagreeable and dis
sipated. A cousin , recalling him to
day , writes :
"As for my cousin , Payne Todd ,
my childish memories of him do not
bear repeating. His manners were
perfectly Grandisonian , but I was a
little afraid of him. Do not ask me
why. "
He became a gourmand and whol
ly lost his beauty and elegance. He
cultivated a taste for foreign cook-
9ry , and a friend , of -boyhood says
that he was continually sending to
the Old World for favorite articles of
Food ; so that at last he was enor
mously stout , quite the figure that a
man must be who drinks liquors as
constantly and catsasself-indulgent-
! y as did he. One who remembers
liim in his later years , after his inher
ited beauty was obliterated , says
that he looked very much like every
other common man who becomes
dissipated bloated and puffed and
jrizzty and slouchy.
Payne Todd accomplished nothing
In his life that was worth a man's
tvhile. During the first years of the
Monroe administration he was Pres
ident Monroe's private secretary , but
for some reason did not remain. He
ran for congress and was defeated.
Be never took his place among coun
try gentlemen as the master of his
estate. He never married. He for-
peited the esteem of every friend whom
his mother and President Madison
secured for him. At 42 , he died of a
long and fearful fever in Washington ,
two years after Mrs. Madison , at a
hotel on Fifteenth street , surrounded
by some of his mother's old slaves
but with no white person near him.
During his conscious moments he had
been full of grief and remorse. In
jhe snow and cold , on Washington's
Dirthdayhe was laid to rest in the Con
gressional cemetery , followed there
oy a carriage containing one friend
and another with his servants. Oth-
jrs of the family buried there were
ifterwards removed , but no one had
jufficient interest in Payne Todd to
lare where he rested. His only part
n the world now is an example of a
wasted life.
Snakes in Mexico.
They have an active little snake
3own in the state of Vera Cruz , which ,
vhen he attacks you , rolls itself up
ike a hoop , and wheels along with ,
jreatspeed.and when close toy ou.un-
joils and begins to whip you soundly J
ibout the legs with its strong and
ricious little tail. He does not bite ,
but only lashes his enemy. Butthere
s another snake , called the "coralito"
which is slender and small and red ,
and which inflicts a bad dangerous
bite. A friend of mine staying on a
plantation , found two coiled up in a
aigh top shoe one morning. In the
hot country cautious people examine
the beds at night to see thatno snake
or scorpion is there , and taking this
prudent precaution , they sleep
soundly enough , for it is often chilly
at night in the hot country. Cor.
