The cost was estimated not to exceed $800.

I believe in the institution of mar riage. I believe that the happy fami lies are the units of good govern ment, aud without which chaos would come again. I believe in the democracy of home, and despise the man who thinks himself the head of the family and tries to be boss. Love is the only thing that pays 10 per cent, to both borrower and lender, and is the only thing in which extravagance is economy. If a man die in the ditch he is nobler if he has been worthily loved than the king on the throne, alone. I do not like a stingy man. Geuerosity covers a multitude of sins. No man is too poor to be gener ous, and no man so rich but he may be mean. Spend money royally. If it is the IaBt dollar you are ob liged to let go, spend it as if it were a dried leaf and you the owner of unbounded forests. Do not make your wife beg you for money. What will your children be if you make their mother a beggar? Mar riage is a partnership, and a woman, in nine cases out often, is the most economical of the two. The way to be truly happy is to make somebody else happy. Who will love us when we grow old and decrepit? Why the woman with whom we dowered our love and youth. I had rather live in an bumble cot with one I love than ditin cold state alone as emperor of the world. Children should be reared in love and kindness. The whip should never have a place in either home or school. People ask, what if your childreu He? Well, suppose they do ; it is generally hereditary. The tyrant will have liars for childreu. Truth is born of confidence ; lies are begotten by fear. A He is the child's only means of defense, the only breastwork they can throw up to protect them from a cruel parent's abuse. Treat your wife as a splen did flower; be civilized and don't beat aud abuse your children. Be honest and independent, and treat others aB you would be treated. Let us have deeds and not creeds. The jJreeH-EyMi Meanter. Mr. Kroger was tranquilly eating his breakfast, a morning or so ago, when bin boy broke the silence by asking him for 25 cents to go tt the minstrels that night. Mr. Kreger promptly refused, on the ground of hard timcB. Mr. Kreger's boy is more than a boy, aud, when he sets his heart on having anything, he generally suc ceeds in getting it; so, when bis father refused to comply with his request, he moved over by his moth er, and said : 'I guess I'll tell ma what the cook said to you last night.' Mrs. Kreger's eyes flashed like two balls of fire. 'You're a nice man,' she said sar castically, 'to come home aud pet me, and kiss me, and call me your dew-gemmed tulip aud then go and receive the caresses of the cook. You miserable frog-eyed rnnt, for two pins I'd go over there and rake your eyes out.' 'I ah ' stammered the lord of the manor, when bis wife broke in : 'Oh, yes I'll ah youland, turn ing suddenly to the boy, she ed manded an explanation. 'Will you give me 25 cents ?-' 'Yes.' 'Give me the money first,' said the boy. 'I'm opening the year on the C. O. D. principle.' He got the money, and relieved bis mother by telling her: "Last night cook came to pa, and got pretty close to him " 'Ob, you wretch I' hissed Mrs. K. 'And, when she got" beside him, she smiled sweetly and said, 'Mr. Kreger, the potatoes are getting low, and you had better get another sack.' ' The boy got out as fast as pos sible, white Kreger lifted bis paper before bis face, to veil,, the smile which made it look like a calcium light. Exchange. VAdrlce to YoHBff l,adIe In order to investigate one's self, it is well to find ont what one is now. Don't fLink vagnely about It. Take pen and paper and write down as accurate a description of yourself as possible; aud, if you- dare not, find out why you dare not, and try and get strength of heart enoi'gh to look yourself in the face, miud as well ad body. Always have two mirrors on your dressing-table, aud with proper care dress mind and body at the same time. Put your best in telligence to. finding out what you are good for and what you can be made into. The mere resolve not tp be useless, aud the houest desire. to help other people, will iu tlm quickest and most delicate way im prove one's self. All accomplish ments should be considered as meaus of assisting others. In music get the voice disciplined and clear, aud think only of accuracy; expres sion and effect will take .care of themselves. So iu drawing; learn to set down the right shape of any thing, and thereby explain its char acter to another person ; but, if you try only to make showy drawings for praise, or pretty ones for amuse ment, your drawing will have little or no real interest for you and no educational power. Re9olve to do each day something useful in the vulgar senBe. Learn the economy of the kitchen, the good and bad qualitios of every common article of food, and the simplest and best modes of their preparation. One should at the end of every day be able to say, as proudly as any peas ant, that she has not eaten the bread of idleness. Get quit of the absurd idea that Heaven will interfere to correct great errors, while allowing its laws to take their own course in punishing small ones. If food is carelessly prepared, no one expects Providence to make it palatable; neither, if through years of folly you misguide your own life, need you expect divine interference to bring around everything at last for the best. I tell you positively the world is not so constituted. The conse quences of great mistakes are JHst as sure as those of small ones, and the happiness of your whole lite,, and of all the Hve9 over which you have power, depends as literally on your common sense and discretion aB the excellence aud order of a day. Ruskin. Democratic XewtlnioBy. Tne Bourbon organ says Gen. Garfield is a dishonest man. Here is some testimony from distinguish ed Democrats which may be con sidered quite aa good as auy asser tions by Bourbon organs : I am proud to call Garfield my frieud, and I would not call any man my friend whom I even sus pected of dishonesty. em.

Hendricks I have been his devoted friend for many years, and I am resolved that I never will believe that he does not deserve the affection I have bes towed upon him. If he would carry the principles which regulate his private life into his public conduct, he would make the best chief Mag istrate we have ever had. Judge Jere Black. In the midst of the organized car nival of corruption which has been going on now so many weary months and years at Washington, it is really satisfactory to catch glimp ses now and then of honesty for honesty's sake, and without consid erations of party. Gen. Garfield, of Ohio, is a Republican of Republi cans, but it is his simple due, which we gladly pay him, to admit that he has done more than anVother single member of his party, during the late session of Congress, to show that It is not impossible for a man to act with a Congressional majority aud yet to keep bia self-respect and the respect of honest men.

The very training and the habits formed by the children of parents in poor or medium circunrttauces, fit them ad mirably for tfio race of life, and secure to them the prize, while the very surroundings of those in well-to-do circumstances often unfit them for the struggle -that build up such character as is demanded to enable (hem to retain the wealth or position gained by their fathers, and thus pas9 into the hands of those who prove themselves worthy of them. These changes take place with surprising rapidity, aud just became they are so common wo scarcely ake note ofUera.. Every observing man of fifty years will, on reflection, find that hia memory is filled with instances of thia upward and down ward course in the lives of those who were his early associates. As we go back to our school-boy days, boys who were then our envy because of their, to our short sightr happy sur roundings,.the wealth of parents and their high: official position giving to these children those things we boys so much craved. Wo find as we run down their history they are the objects of our pity and not envy. While those who were the poor boys are now the prominent and influen tial men of wealth and position. There was one boy in particular, whoso surroundings were the most discouraging and whose tutureshow him or his friends no opening prom ise save what beamed from his own sharp eye. Not a boy is there iu Webster county whose circumstan ces are so pinched, whose opuurtu uitief for advancement are so meagre as were that boy's. But up through the opposing obstacles, up through the direst poverty, up through the murky atmosphere of a drunken father's home, the same boy climbed to one of the uppermost round of honor and affluence iu the nation, and had he lived till now, would probably have sat in the first, as ho did tho second place of favor in tho republic.

Deputy United States Marshal Moody, who has just returned from Camps Robinson and Sheridan, re lates a notable instance of tho sa gacity of a dog. The dog belonged to William Morrison, a herder at .Tonks' rauche, situated on the Chadron creek, aud ten miles from the nearest ranche. Last Sunday morning Morrison was thrown from his horse, and sustained a complicated fracture of the leg. He crawled across tho bridge and over the prairie, a quarter mile or more, to the ranche aud on arriving there wrote a note stating bin con dition and asking for help to reach the hospital at Fort Sheridan. He fastened the note to the dog's neck, untied tho sagacious animal, and pointed it toward Nelson's ranche. The dog went straight toward the ranche and after traveling about eight miles, when he wa- yet two miles from Nelson', met a herder, who recognized the dog, stopped him, read the note, aud went to the relief of Morrison. He retied the note and the dog wont on to Nel son's. The herder rode post haste to Morrison's relief and after making him as comfortable as possible con veyed him to the fort. Morrison says that the last thing ho shall part with will be the dog. Omaha Herald. The .11 other IE u let the World. It is bard for a young mother, who has not yet overcome the way ward tendencies of her own youth ful nature, to realize the influence she exerts oyer her own little ones. She is constantly surrounded by critical imitators, who copy her morals and manners. As the moth er is, so are her sons and daughters. If a family of children is blessed with an intelligent mother, who is delicate and refined in her manners, and does not consider it necessary to be one woman in a drawing room and an entirely differenf person in every day -life, but who is a true mother and always a tender, charm ing woman, you will invariably see her 'habits of speech and perfect manners repeated in her children. Great, rough men and noisy busy boys will always tone down their voices antl step lightly and try to be more mannerly when she stops to give them a kind word or a pleasant smile; for a true mother will never fail to say or do all the pleasant things that she can that will in any way help or lift op and cheer those whose lives are shaded with care and toil. The mother of to-day rales the world of to-morrow. It does not take half as long to make a wound as to heal one.'
