It ib very unfortuuato for many
that a Eubjcct bo practical aud Im
portant as marriage is often spoken
of as if it were a mere jocular inci
dent in human life. The opportu
nity to fill young minds with just
and pure ideas concerning it is par
tially lost, and from the hahit of
treating matrimony as a horrible
Marriage has its social side. Per
sons rise or fall, or are kept from
falling, in a great measure, by the
companions for life whonr they se
lect. Mr. Imall would never, by
himself, have amounted to much,
but he had tho good fortune to mar
ry a capable, energetic girl, and the
result is the Imall family stand
among the foremost in the town.
Marriage has its prudential side.
"When the young people set out In
disregard of the first principles of
houest living, they lay the basis of
many a bitter sorrow. "When Belf
denial, forethought, and careful cal
culation are made at the beginning,
and even over-mastering affection is
made to bend to practical wisdom,
they have laid a foundation for 6afo
future prosperity. Tom Fawcett
was desperately in love with Miss
Green, but he knew just how much
it would take to "set them up,"
however modestly. He told her his
ideas and plans ; he got a savings
bank book; she kept it for him; it
was a salutary check on any little
extravagances to which he might
have been tempted. Mr. Fawcett
now keeps four domestics, and
makes ever' one of them keep a
Marriage has an intellectual side.
A man with a handsome face and
figure, but without brains or any
wish for knowledge, makes it hard
for a wife of average capacity to
maintain tho "looking up" attitude.
On the other hand, a refined and ed
ucated woman with an active mind
lifts up a man who has inherent
force, though, perhaps, without early
advantages. A wise young fellow
ought to 6ay to himself, ''When that
hair Is IesB thick and glossy, when
that cheek is paler, when that eye
has less lustre than now, will there
still remain a mind that will stimu
late and strengthen mine?"
Marriage has a moral side. Harry
Bell admired his "girl," but he did
not respect her. There was nothing
wrong about her, but he did not in
bis heart do honor to her principles.
She dazzled others, she fascinated
him, he was proud of her in society.
But that was all. "When he had his
home and hB wife in it, he did not
keep away tho men whose looseness
or coarseness would shock a good
woman. "Wit might be wicked, but
she enjoyed it if it was witiy. So
his tone was not kept up, but let
down ; and unfortunately, the "boys"
aro bad, and the girls are "not turn
ing out well." It might have been
different if Mrs. Bell had set up a
higher standard of goodness.
Marriage has a personal side. A
little high temper, a little dull mo
roscness, a little looseness of the
tongue, a little a very little jeal
ousy of disposition, may be the ruin
of two lives that ought to have been
happy as one. Dear Edith was a
lovely girl, but her girl friends
knew that she had a temper of her
own ; and, unfortunately, now that
she temper and all is Charlie's, he
knows it, likewise. He is most cau
tious in her company. A mau who
carries about a bag of pun-powder
needs to avoid sparks. She might
blow him up. On the other hand,
Dick Brown is, in many respects, a
nice fellow, extremely precise in
manner, but so jealous that his
wife's own relations are watched,
snubbed and at length driveu from
his house by him, lest they should
get the affections of his wife. He
has, in various small ways, "cribbed,
cabined and confined her," till a
sprightly, warm hearted girl, with
frank manners and an honest nature,
is changed into a restrained, timid,
hesitating woman. It is pitiable to
see her side-long glance at him, that
she may find out whether, unob
served, 6he may cordially receive an
old friend of her childhood. Dick
might scold her sideways all the
evening if she showed too much
These and many such matters are
littlo thought of by too many young
persons, aud hence, the " incompati
bility," the " unpleasantness" aud
quarrels ending too often in separa
tion. The union was formed under
the influence of admiration, or self
love, or ambition, or sordid gain,
and it was not happy. Ah, Mr.
Looker, you may buy gold too dear.
There is a curious lelicity somo
have in the circumstances of their
marriage, which gives them a good
send-ofT. They do not surprise any
one when it is announced. People
Bay it is just the thing. They do
not run about the town, telling ev
erybody about the "catch" but they
cement the friendship of many years
by timely confidences, which hay,
informally, "I wish you as one of
my friends to kuow it." Their
wedding is nice, there is no mean
ness, and no "splurge." "Her own
minister," who has long known her,
watched over her ; and shares in her
hopeful satisfaction: marries her,
and his voice trembles a little aB he
Bays, "The Lord bless you!" He
feels as if giving his own child to
another custody, and the bridegroom
knows again from the very tones of
the clergyman that he would be bad

and provoking no criticism. Tboy

Th-sy will not be tho " talk of the
tovrn." They will never occupy the
time of a divorce court. How to
mood matters is a hard problem;
but rash, inconsiderate, 6elfish, wick
ed marriages are a 6ore evil in
society. The making of such match
es is a topic of talk which in itself
demoralizes, and the breaking of
them, later, with more or less of
form, renews tho malignant influ
ence. "When old Congressman Kite
flyor married Miss Hooper, who was
poor, showy, and ambitious to get
to the capital, the talk about it cor
rupted the place. It was a bad play
which everybody saw acted on the
stage of actual life. He had no real
love for anybody, except old Kite
flyer; nd she no true love for him.
Anl when a year or two after, the
"old fool" sent her home, and settled
with her lawyers bow much he
should pay, the stench was again
over the place. Health officers are
rnu:h needed to abate nuisances that
pol ute the air and Bend poison into
the luugs ; but who shall drive away
the bad gases and noxious smells
tha. blight all delicacy, and poison
the gentler feelings of our people?
Dr. John Hall.
Striker Stowe's Way.
Striker Stowe was a tall, powerful
Scotchman, whose position aB 'Boss
Str ker' at the steel works made him
generally known. Nearly all of the
men in his department were hard
drinkers, and he was no exception
to the rule.
But one day it was announced
among the workmen that he had be
come religious, and sure enough,
when pressed to take a drink he

The knowing ones smiled, and

sb dry as a gravel-pit he will give

But right through the hottest
months he toiled, tho sweat pouring
oft 'n streams; yet he seemed never
to be tempted to drink.
Finally, as I was taking the men's
timu, one evening, I stopped and
spoke with him. 'Stowe,' said I,
'yoi used to take considerable li
quor. Don't you miss it?'
'Yes,' said he, emphatically.
'I ,ow do you manage to keep away

I giu Him the glory as I put down

Just as I mark these, I pray, O
Lord halp me halp me- to fight it

'Bow long shall you keep this
up? I inquired.
'A 11 my life,' was tho earnest re

an' happiness that I wouldn't gie it
up for anything.
'It is just as if He took me by the

The following paragraph on short
worls is attributed to Horatio Sey
mour. It practices what is preached
theriin, since there is no word in it
will more than two syllables, save
such as are quoted for purposes of
"We must not only think in words
but vo must try to use the beBt
words, and those which in speech
will put what is in our mind into
the nind of others. This is the
great art which thoso must gain who
wisb to teach iu the school, the
chursh, at the bar or through tho
presn. To do this in tho right way
they should use the short words
which we learn in early life, and
which have the same senso to all
classes of men. The English of our
Bibb) is good: Now and then some
long words are found and they al
wayi hurt the verses in which you
find them. Take that which Bays
0 yc generation of vipers, who
hath warned you to flee from tho
wrath to come?' There is one long
word which ought not to be in it,
namely, 'generation.' In the old
version the old word 'brood' is used.
Read the verse again with this term
and you feel its full force : 'O, ye
viper's brood, who hath warned you
to floe from the wrath to come?'
Critre sometimes does not seem like
crim: when set before us in the
man folds of a long word. "When
a ma 3 steals and we call it a 'defal

Some PhyMical FrultH of Idle-
The mind should be always occu
pied; it is strengthened and pre
served iu a healthy state by work ;
whereas it decays or becomes im
poverished by disuse; or, what is
even worse, ciuce it is impossible to
keep the brain absolutely at rest, its
powers should be profitably em
ployed, or they react on the system,
and give rise to the numberless ail
ments, physical, mental, aud moral,
known as hysteria. This term al
most implies that I am thinking of
the female sex; certainly, it is to
women especially that the want of
occupation applies. Young men are
forced to get their living whether
tbey like it or not; but a large num
ber of young ladies iu a family have
absolutely nothing to do. Those
brought up in the country have this
advantage, that they may always
make work for themselves ; the vil
lage children may be otherwise
taught aud cared for; bringing not
only a blessing upon them, but a
healthy body aud mind to the bene
factor. In town the condition of
middle-class girls is to mo pitiable.
They are too genteel to follow any
occupation ; they are often too many
in a family to assist in domestic
duties; they have returned home
with Borne very poor accomplish
ments ; their knowledge of French
and German is not sufficient to allow
them to converse in thoso languages ;
and music just euough to indulge in
doleful song or play badly on the
piano. They dawdle through the
day in a listless way, and fall vic
tims to a thousand little ailments
which the doctor is supposed to put
right by physic. And the most cu
rious thing is that, should the in
stincts of the girl force her to put
some of her energies into use, she is
likely as not to be thwarted by her
mother. I am a daily witness to
this; and, when young ladies are
brought to me for advice, the inva
riable story is that they aro over
taxing their strength ; the maternal
instinct being so perverted that it
has become with many the beliet
that every movement means fatigue,
aud absolute rest is the way to en
sure health. It is against this very
erroneous view that I am now
preaching. These mothers do not
come to tho doctor for advice, but
come to dictate to him; and they
say, "I want you, doctor, to insist on
my daughter not playing the organ
at church, for it is too much for her;
or having that children's class once
a week, for she is always ill after it;
but order her to have her breakfast
in bed, and a glass of port wine
about 11 o'clock." It is this fanciful
care on tho part of parents which is
so injurious ; for the very energy of
young people would command them
to occupy themselves. I do not
kuow that girls are worso than boys
in respect of idleness ; for probably
the latter would not work unless
obliged, and even for them an occu
pation is good quite apart from that
at which they earn their daily bread.

The Dignity of Honaelceeplag;.
Where is there any station higher
than the ordering of the house?
While the husband has to vex him
self with outward matters, while he
has wealth to gather and secure,
while perhaps be takes part in the
administration of the State, and ev
erywhere depends on circumstances ;
ruling nothing, I may Bay, while ho
conceives that he is ruling much;
compelled to be but politic where
he would willingly be reasonable,
to dissemble where bo would be
open, to be false where he would be
upright ; while thus, for the sake of
an object which ho never reaches, he
must every moment sacrifice the firnt
of objects, harmony with himself a
reasonable housewife is actually
governing in the interior of her fam
ily; has the comfort aud activity ol
ovory person in it to provide for,
and make possible. What is the
highest happiness of mortals, if not
to execute what wo consider right
and good, to be really masters of
the means conducive to our aims?
And whero should or can our near
est aims be but in the interior of
our homes? Ail those indispensi
ble and still to-be-renewed supplies,
where do we expect, do we require
to find them, if not in the place
whero we rise and where we go to
sleep, where kitchen and cellar, and
every species of accommodation for
ourselves and ours is to be always
ready ? What unvarying activity is
needed to couduct this constantly
recurring series in unbroken living
order I How few are the men to
whom it is given to return regularly
like a star, to commaud their day as
they command their night; to form
for themselves their household in
struments, to sow and to reap, to
gain and to spend, and to travel
around their circle with perpetual
success and peace and love! It is
when a womau has attained this In
ward mastery, that she truly makes
the husband whom alio loves a mas
ter; her attention will require all
sorts of knowledge; her activity will
turn them all to profit. Thus iB she
dependent upon no one; and she
procures her husband genuiuo inde
pendence, that which is interior and
domestic; whatever he possesses, he
beholds secured ; what he earns,well
employed; and thus ho can direct
his mind to lofty objects and, if for
tune favors, ho may act in the State
the samo character which so well
becomes his wifo at homo.
Night "Life ofYonBK ifleH.
One night often destroys a whole
lifo. Night is sin's harvesting time.
More sin and crime are committed
in one night than in all the days of
the week. This is more emphatic
ally true of the city than of the
country. Tho street lamps, like a
file of soldiers, with torch iu hand,
stretched away in long lines on ei
their sidewalk; tho gay colored
transparencies are ablaze with at
tractions; the saloons and billiard
balls are brilliantly illuminated ; mu
sic sends forth its enchantment; the
gay company begin to gather to the
haunts and houses of pleasure, the
gambling deus are aflame with pa
latial spleudor; the theatres are
open ; the mills of destruction are
griudiug health, honor, happiness,
hope out of thousands of lives. The
city uuder tho gas-light is uot the
samo as God's sun-light. The al
lurements and perils and pitfalls of
night are a hundred fold deeper aud
darker and more destructive. Night
life in our cities is a dark problem,
whoso depths and abysses and whirl
pools make us start back with hor
ror. All night long tears are falling,
blood is streaming.
Young men, tell me bow and
whero you spend your evenings,
and I will write out a chart of your
character and final destiny, with
blanks to insert your names. It
seems to mo an appropriate text
would be, "Watchman, what of tho
night ?" Policeman, pacing thy beat,
what of the night? Where do they
spend their evenings? Who are
their associates? What are their
habits? Where do they go in, and
what time do you see them come
on? Policeman, would tho night
life of young men commond them to
the confidence of their employers?
Would it bo to their credit?
Make a record of the nights of one
week. Put in the morning paper
the names of all the young men,their
habits aud haunts, that are on the
street for sinful pleasure. Would
there not be shame and confusion?
Some would not dare to go to their
places of business; some would not
return homo at night; some would
leave the city; some would commit
suicide. Remember, young man,
that in tho retina of the all-seoing
Eye there is nothing hid but shall be
revealed on tho last day. Ex.

Dr. . J. Kendull Cedents: I had
a very valuable Humbletontian colt
which I prized very highly; he had a
large bnne spaiuou one joint and a
smaller one on the other which made
him very lame; 1 had him under the
charge of two Veterinary Surgeons
which filled to cure him. I was one
day reading the advertisement of Ken
dall's Spavin Cure in the Chicago E.x
prubS, 1 determined at once to try it
and got our Druggists here to send for
it, they ordered ihree bottles; I took
them all and thought I would give it a
thorough trial, I ued it according ti
directions and by the fourth day tiie
colt ceased to be lame, and the lumps
bad entirely disappeared. I used but
one bottle and the colts limbs areas free
trotu lumps and as smooth as any horse
in the state. He is entirely cured. The
cure was so remarkable that J let two
of my neighbors have tho remaining two
bottles, who are now using it. Verj
Ucspertfully, L. T. Fotek. "

Dr. 1$. J. Kendall & Co., Gents: Iu
reply to your letter I will siy that my
experience with " Kendall' Spavin
Cure" ha been very satisfactory in
deed. Three or four years ago I prp.
cured a bottle of your agent, and with
it, cured a horse of lamt'iics cauxed by
a spavin. Last season my horse became
very lame and I turned him out for a
few weeks when he became better, but
when I put him on the road he grew
worse, when I discovered that a ring
bone was forming, 1 procured a bottle
of Kendall's Spavin Cure and with lust
than a bottle cured him so that he is uot
lame, neither can the bunch be found.

to let you know that I have removed
two bone spavins with"ICcndull's Spav

know how lung the spavin had been
there. I have owned the horse eight
months. It took me four months to tike
the large ouo otf aud two for the small
one. I have used ten bottles. The horso
is entirely well, not at all still", and no
bunch to be seen or felt. This is a won

done for mo its sale will bo very great.
