On tin. 11th ihiy of Novombor, 1858,
James A. Garfield married his first and
only low, Lucre! ia Rudolph. He liatl
originally mot licr some seven yeuis bo
fore when he whs a poor student striving
mightily for tin education at II i nun.
They studied together, they road together,
they thought together, they built castles
together, and it was not long uufore the
firm friendship, which was based upon
common tastes and aspirations, blossomed
into the grand passion. Before he bade
her good-by, as he left Jliram to enter
Williams College, he hail told his love
and the maiden of his heart had engaged
lKsrself to him.
The mulch was made in l.eavcn. These
two were intended for cieli oilier in all
that the words imply. He was to her a
fond, devoted, ehivaliio husband. She
was in the best sense his helpmeet, his
constant inspiration and comfort. Many
and many a time during their married
life he bore emphatic witness to the im
measurable service which she rendered
him. He declared that whatever success
ho gained among his fellows was largely
due to her wise counsels, her unfailing
sympathy, her abiding low He named

OEMS FROM INGERSOLh.
The following beautiful worded gems
of thought are extracted from Ingersoll's
article on the Christian religion in the
last North American:
Slavery includes all other crimes.
Candor is the courage of the soul.
Anger blows out the lump of mind.
Epithets arc Ihe arguments of malice.
Ignorance is the mother of credulity.
Arguments cannot be answered with in
sults. The world is to euch man according to
An earthly father who cannot govern
by affection Is not lit to bo a father.
Good nature is often mistaken for vir
tue, and good health sometimes passes
There is no world, no star, no hoavou,
no hell In which gratitude is not a virtue
and whoro slavery is not a crime.

Life is a shadowy, strange and winding
road on which we travel for a little way

of the human mind, not to be aware of the
quicksands upon which all greenhorns

Vivian Giiey. "Yes we must mix with
t lie Lord; we must enter into their feel
ings; we must honor their weakness; we
must sympathize with the sorrows that
we do not feel; ami share the merriment
of fools. Oyes! to act men, we must be
men; to prove that we are strong, we must
be. weak; to prove that we are giants, we
must be dwarfs; even as the eastern genie
was hid in the charmed bottle. Our wis

our constancy under caprice."
A Nose. "Ho was a very stout man
willi a prodiginous paunch, which his
tightened dress dress set off to a groat ad
vantage. His face, and particularly his
forehead were of great breadth. His eyes
wore set far apart. His long oars hung
down nearly to his shoulders; yet singu
lar as he was, not only lr. those, but in
many othor respects, everything was for
gotten when your eyes lighted on his
nose. It was the most prodigious that
Vivian over remembered not only seeing,
but having, oi even reading of. In fact It
was too monstrous for the crude conception
of a dream. The mighty nose hung down
almost to the owner's chest."
