" You look sober, Bella. What's the mat
The remark and question came from Aunt
Rachel, who had called to spend an afternoon
and take tea with her niece. •
" I feel sober just at this time, aunt."
"No unusual cause for uncomfortable
feelings, I hope," said aunt Rachel, the pleas
ant light which had come into her face be
ginning gradually to fade away.
"Oh, no ; nothing unusual. It's the old
story with me. There are very few days
now in which I am not disturbed or made to
feel unhappy."
" Why, Bella, this is strange news. Dis
turbed and made to feel unhappy every day !
You pain me by such an acknowledgment.
What has gone wrong with you ?"
" Nothing wrong with myself, aunt," was
the reply; "but that oldest boy of mine is
growing so self-willed, disobedient and un
governable, that I'm half in - despair about
" I'm sorry for that, Bella. Perhaps you
have indulged and humored him too much."
" I think not. From the very beginning,
I have made it a rule to repress, so far as lay
in my power, everything disorderly and evil;
to require strict obedience to my word on
pain of certain punishment. No, aunt, I do
not think the fault lies at my door. Edward
has a strange disposition. I don't know what
to make of him sometimes. lie seems bent
on doing the things I interdict. Only half an
hour ago I found him in the library with a
handsome book lying upon the floor, marking
some of the fine illustrations with a pencil.
Once before I had punished him for this very
thing, and here it was again."
" And you punished him again ?"
" I did, severely."
" Where is he ?"
" Shut up in a room by himself."
" Overhead ?"
" Yes ; that's him pounding on the floor
now. Just hear the noise he is making !
And it isn't ten minutes since I threatened to
whip him, if he did it again."
Bella went hastily from the room, and go
ing half way up the stairs, called in a sharp,
commanding voice—
" You, Edward !"
The hammering ceased in an instant.
" What did I say to you about that noise a
little while ago ?"
No answer.
" Edward !" There was no kindess, no
softness, no motherly love in the voice that
uttered the name. "Do you hear, sir ?"
Still no response.
" Why don't you answer me ?"
The mother was growing excited.
" Edward, if you don't answer me, I'll
punish you severely !"
A sulky muttering now came from the
" Don't let me hear that noise again, sir, or
you will be sorry for it."
" Can't I come out, mother ? I'm tired of
staying here."
" No, sir; you can't come out, you naughty
boy !"
" I will come out !" screamed the child,
with a sudden wildness of manner, as if he
had grown desperate ; and he rattled the lock
and kicked passionately against the door.
This was more than the excited mother
could endure ; and springing up stairs, she
unlocked the door and entered the prison
room. Aunt Rachel sighed as she heard
rapidly falling strokes, and the cries of Ed
" You s," said Bella, as she returned,
with a flushed face and angry looking eye,
to the sitting room, " what trouble I have got
before me."
Aunt Rachel did not reply.
" I've never seen just such a child," the
young mother continued, " and I don't know
what is to become of him. He prefers wrong
to right always, and recognizes authority on
ly for the sake of disobedience. If,in sending
him from the room in consequence of some
misdemeanor, I tell him to go up stairs, he
will almost surely go down ; if 1 have said
go down, he will go up. Always, he is de
sirous to gain the interdicted object. It is
marvellous, this perversion of his mind. You
don't know how it distresses me. There, just
listen. He is pounding on the floor, as I live
And what is more, he will keep at it, in spite
of threat or punishment. Now what am I
to do with such a boy, aunt Rachel ? I've
tried everything, but it's of no use."
"Suppose, Bela, you let him come down
and see me. Perhaps that will get him out
of his present unhappy state of mind."
" But, aunt," objected the mother, " do
you not see that he would then consider him
self as having triumphed ?"
" I am not sure that he would think any
thing about it. He would come into a bet
ter state of mind than the one that is now ru
ling him ; and this, it seems to me, would be
something gained. It is in the sunshine that
good affections grow, not in storm and dark

Bella sat reflecting for some time. She
did not like the idea of yielding to her rebel
lious child in the smallest degree. Pride and
love of rule influenced her as ranch as a
sense of duty, perhaps a little more. In giv
ing up, she felt that she must experience a
degree of humiliation.
"Forgive him this time, for my sake,"
urged aunt Rachel. " I shall not enjoy my
visit if he is under punishment all the after
After a further debate with herself, the
mother left the room and went up to her im
prisoned boy. He was pounding on the floor
when she-turned the key and enterep.
" Edward I"
She spoke sternly. The little fellow start
ed up, with a look half defiant.
" You are a very naughty boy."
Edward set his lips firmly, and knit his
fair young brows.
" How dare you pound on the floor, after I
had forbidden it?"
Edward moved back a step or two. There
was danger in his mother's eyes.
" Why don't you answer me when I
speak ?'
" I couldn't help it," stammered the child.
" Couldn't help it t. Ain't you afraid to
give me such an answer ?" and a hand moved,
half involuntarily, as if a blow was about to
follow. -4
" Aunt Rachel is down stairs."
" Oh, is she ?" Two little hands came to
gether with a sound like a kiss, and waves of
sunshine swept suddenly over a face that was
dark and stormy a moment before.
" I've a great mind not to let you see her,
after all this bad behavior."
The mother could not forgive him. In
stantly the smile went out from Edward's
face ; but he looked neither penitent nor dep
recating. She turned from him as if she
would leave him still in prison • but there
was no sign of weakness—only the disfigur
ing scowl on his face that made it so painful
to look upon.
" Come." The mother coldly extended her
hand. Edward advanced toward her with a
slow step, and giving his hand in a reluctant
manner, as if there was no pleasure for him
in the touch, followed half behind her, down
into the sitting-room.
" Here's that naughty boy." This was
Edward's introduction to his mother's aunt.
"Now don't pout your lips after thatfashion I"
was added, reprovingly. " Kiss aunt Rachel."
Edward wanted to throw his arms about
aunt Rachel's neck, and kiss her to his heart's
content; but the reproof and command sent
an evil spirit of resistance into him, and he
merely put up his lips with an air which said
to his mother, whc: did-m.. 4 z- zoo his face, "
don't want to kiss her." But aunt Rachel
saw love in his eyes.
"If you can't behave better, go up stairs
" Oh, he's behaving nicely," said aunt Ra
chel, as she drew an arm around the boy ;
and then she began to talk to him in a way
that soon commanded all his attention. But
his mother would give him no peace. It
" Don't ride on your aunt in that way,"
" Just see there, you rude fellow, your feet
are on aunt Rachel's dress ; or—
" Don't twist your shoulders so I" or—
" You had better go away from aunt Ra
chel ; you are annoying her."
" Not in the least," aunt Rachel replied to
this, drawing her loving arms about the
pleased child;-in whose bright face she read a
volume of golden promise, if there were only
a wise hand to turn the leaves.
But half an hour did not pass before Ed
ward and his mother came into direct colli
sion, and he was sent in disgrace from, the
room. ~...
" Now, what am I to do, aunt Rachel ?"
said the mother, in a half-despairing voice.
" You see what a self-willed, disobedient,
reckless boy he is. how he resists me in
everything ! What am Itodo ?"
" Learn the first lesson in governing oth
ers," replied aunt Rachel, with considerable
gravity of manner.
" What is that ?" asked. her niece.
" To govern yourself I"
" Aunt Rachel !"
" I mean just what I say; and until you
learn to do this, you will strive in vain with
your child. Anger awakens anger ; harsh
ness naturally produces antagonism - oft-re
peated punishments and for trivial Offences,
are the parents of rebellion ; but love, Bella,
quickens love into life. There is more true
power for good in the tender, sympathetic
tones of a mother, warm with motherly love,
than in her most imperative command or
sternest interdiction. Her mission is to lead,
not drive, her children in the right way."
Aunt Rachel paused to note the effects of
her plainly-spoken admonition. Her niece
had a startled look, but she made no reply.
"I have not heard you speak a kind, ap
proving word to that boy since I have been
here," resumed aunt Rachel.
" How can I speak ,approvingly when he
does wrong ? How can I encourage him to
disobedience by smiling when he sets ray
commands at defiance ?"
" I fear, Bella, that you call many things
wrong that are done innocently in part. You
follow him too closely, and scold him too
much for things that are of no account. You
have not once, that I have seen, this after
noon, tried to divert him from anything that
he was doing not strictly in the line of your
approval ; it was always a command, and al
ways harshly made. Fe s rgive me, Bella, for
this plain speech ; but I see your error so
plainly that I must point it out. You have
forgotten the pithy adage about honey catch
ing more flies than vinegar. Try the honey,
my dear,—try the honey. lam sadly afraid
that you are shadowing the life of that child
—shutting out the sunshine, by which alone
good plants can vegetate in the garden of' his
soul. I have seen little besides an evil growth
to-day ; yet down among the rankly-spring
ing weeds, trying to struggle up into the air
and light, a few flowers of affection were
faintly visible. Oh, Bella, search for these
as for precious treasures ; water them with
the dews of love, and let the heart's warm
sunshine go down into the earth around them.
Don't think so much of the repression and
extermination of evil, as about the growth and
development of good. But, first of all, put
your house in order. Regulate your own
heart. Repress anger, pride, self-will, love
of ruling, indignation at rebellion—let only
affection reign in your heart, and thoughts
of your child's good fill your mind."
Bella sat in a kind of bewildering silence,
and her aunt kept on—
" Will you not act on my suggestion ? Go
to Edward and speak to him as if you loved
him. Let him feel the love in your voice and
see is in your eyes ; and, as the magnet at
tracts iron, so will you attract him. Forget
that he has offended you ; or, if you think of
it and speak of it, be as though you were
grieved, not angry. Love to'his mother will
bind him to the law of obedience, when fear
of punishment would only impel him' to its
• Bella arose quickly. She looked into her
aunt's face, but made no response. Tears
were in her eyes as she left the apartment.—
Going up stairs into the room in which Ed
ward had been banished, she opened the do‘:!.':
and went in with a quiet step. The boy start
ed as she entered, and looked around from
his work of marking with a pencil on the
white window-sash. He was doing wrong,
ana being caught in the act, expected pun
ishment, or an angry lecture. So he put on
a look of defiance. But his mother instead
of blazing out upon him, as was her wont,
sat down in a strange, quiet way, and said,
" Edward," so softly and gently that he could
only stand and look at her in surprise.
" Edward ;" she repeated his name, and
now with a tenderness that made his heart
leap. Her hands were held out towards him.
Dropping the pencil, he advanced a step or
two, looking wonderingly at his mother.--
She still held out her hands.
" Come dear." He was by her side in an
". Do you love mother." An arm was
drawn gently around him. He did not an
swer in words, he put his arm around hEtr
neck and kissed her. What a thrill of pleas
ure went trembling to her heart !
" I love Eddy." The little arms tightened
about her neck, and the little head went down
nestling upon her bosom.
" Oh, I love you so much 1" The half
smothered voice was full of childish earnest
" Will Eddy be good for mother ?"
" I won't never be naughty again 1" Ed
ward stood up, speaking in a resolute way,
and looking full into his mother's face. "If
I can't help it," he added a little less confi
— " -, 4h, Eddy canhelp it ha will," said his
mother, smiling encouragement into his face.
Something was on the lip of the boy, but
he kept it back from utterance.
" What is it, dear ? What were you go
ing to say ?"
" Thus encouraged, Edward said, dropping
his eyes as he spoke :
" I'll forget, sometimes, I'm almost sure I
will, but--"
He paused with the sentence unfinished.
" But what, dear ?"
" Don't scold me, then, mamma. Kiss me
and I will be sorry."
He caught his breath with a sob, and his
mother drew his head against her bosom and
laid her tearful face down among his golden
When they entered. the sitting-room, aunt
Rachel saw that it was all right with them.
She held out her hand to Edward, who came
to her in a gentle way, and stood, with a hap
py-looking face, by her side.
Scarcely within her memory, had the moth
er spent so pleasant an afternoon. EdWard,
of course, soon forgot himself, soon meddled
with forbidden things, made unseemly noises,
or conducted himself in a way that tried, se
verely, his mother's patience. But she com
pelled herself, and it required no light effort
to use honey instead of vinegar—to speak in
affectionate remonstrance, instead of angry
threats —and instantly, the troubled waters
grew still. She could not but notice the sin
gular difference, in effect, between the loud,
emphatic, and commanding utterance in
which shs so long indulged, and the quiet
loving words now spoken in under tones.—
Will then opposed itself to will—but now love
yielded to love. The boy once so rebellious,
was now anxious to gain his mother's approv
al. She had governed herself, and the work
of governing her child so impossible before,
became a thing of easy achievement.
" Don't forget it, dear," said aunt Rachel,
as she held the hand of her niece, in parting
at the close of her visit.
" Never," was the earnest reply. " You
have removed scales from my eyes, and sel
fishness, self-will and passion shall Inver
blind me again. I will try to govern myself
always, before attempting to govern my child
—try to see what is for his good—try to
stimulate the growth of loving affections,
rather than give up all thought to the weeds,
in seeking to tear up which, I have already
hurt so mony tender plants."
" Ah, my dear child, that is the true way,"
replied aunt Rachel. "If you can get the
life-forces of his young spirit to flow vigorous
ly into the good plants, they will soon spring
up into the sunny air spreading out their
branches and striking their roots wide and
deep into theearth, leaving the evil plants
to droop and wither for lack of nourish

A Toast Well Buttered
A few weeks since, at Bliss&ld, Michigan,
an old lady, one of the mothers in Democrat
ic Israel, whose father was a soldier in the
Revolution, presented to the Democratic club
of the village a Douglas banner wrought with
her own hands, accompanied by the following
OUR NATION !—Begotten amid the storms
of the sixteenth century, its infantile move
ments were dim and indistinctly seen on
board the 21a,yjiatver, on the rocks of Ply
mouth, at Jamestown, on the plains of Mo
nongahela, and on the heights of Abraham.
The capricious squalls of its infancy were
heard in the tea party in Boston, in Faneiul
Hall, on the plains of Concord, Lexington
and Bunker Hill. In his boyhood he ran
bareheaded and barefooted over the plains of
Saratoga, Trenton, Princeton, Monmouth and
Yorktown, whipped his mother and turned
her out of doors. In his youth he strode over
the prairies of the boundless West and called
them all his own; paid tribute to the despots
of Barbary in powder and balls ; spit in his
father's face from behind the cotton bales at
New Orleans • whipped the mistress of the
ocean ; revelled in the halls of Montezumas ;
straddled the Rocky Mountains, and, -with one
foot upon the golden sand and the other upon
codfish and lumber, defied the world. In
manhood, clothed in purple and fine linen,
he rides over a continent in cushioned cars •
rides over the ocean in palace steamers ; sends
his thoughts on wings of lightning to the
world around ; thunders at the door of the
Celestial Empire and at the portals of distant
Japan ; slaps his poor old deerepid father in
the face and tells him to be careful how he
pecks into any of ins pickaroons, and threat
ens to make a sheep - pasture of all the land
that joins him. What he'll do in his old age
God only knows. May he live ten thousand
years, and his shadow never be less.
A NEW STEAM PLovr.—At the St. Louis Ag
ricultural Fair a steam plow was on eshibi
tiion. The Devocrat of the 28th ult., says
of it
This steam plow was made at Hannibal,
Mo., and has been brought thence to our
great fair. It was built last spring, by Messrs.
'Steam & Roberts, upon which is claimed as a
new principle, that of applying the locomo
tive power near the periphery of the wheels.
Mr. Robert L. Stean, the first above named,
is the inventor, and has filed an application
for a patent in the case. The machine weighs
seven _toil©, and is_twenty feet long by ten
wide, while the forward wheels are twenty
inches in width. It is guaranteed to plow
thirty acres of land in a day—and the san
guine managers believe it capable of plowing
forty. The plow left Hannibal at 11 o'clock,
a. m. Monday lazt, on a barge, rigged with
paddles, which the steam wagon was made
to move I This is a curious combination, in
which a barge carries a wagon, and the wag
on propels the barge. The old hermaphro
craft excited much suspicious auguring among
the boatmen on the river, despite which it
arrived duly at 5 o'clock, Monday evening.
The wagon being eliminated from the barge,
first " astonished the natives" on Carr street,
yesterday morning.—lt then took up its march
for the fair grounds, passing down Broadway
and out Wash street, and causing much more
astonishment than the Prince of Wales him
self. Being a wagon of twenty horse power,
it, of course, found no diffi.culty in getting
Dunn County (Wisconsin) Lumberman of a
late date, says that a few days since, about
noon, the family of Mr. Stephen Grover, liv
ing six miles east of Pepin, were startled by
the unusual squealing of a pig. Suspecting
the cause, Mr. G. directed his sons, several of
whom—men grown—were in the house, to
load their guns and prepare to shoot the bear.
But Mr. Hans Lunn, a Norwegian carpenter,
and Mr. Woodbury Grover, too impatient to
wait for the guns, rushed out towards the spot
where the noise originated, and before they
were aware of their danger, Lunn, who was
in advance, was in the jaws of the bear.--
Having no weapon of any description, not
even a club, he defended himself the best he
could with his hands and feet, and called lus
tily for help. Once during the struggle, he
states, he got Bruin by the lower jaw and ear,
and held him for_nearly a minute, but losing
his hold the bear siezed him by the thigh and
bit out a large piece of the flesh, and other
wise bit and mangled both legs before he
could be driven off. Owing to the swampy
nature of the ground, where the affair hap
pened, the bear was suffered to escape. Mr.
Lunn is said to be badly wounded, and by
the time he recovers will be likely to discover
that it is no boy's play to cope, single-handed,
with a black bear.
pondent of the Boston Herald writes from
Nashua, N. H., as follows " I now barely
announce the fact, and will give you the par
ticulars at another time, that a motive power
has been discovered and satisfactorily tested,
which, it is estimated, will not only be more
effective than steam as a motive power, but
which will be eighty per cent. cheaper !
Think not that lam romancing, for I speak
by the card' upon, the best authority. The
new motor of which I speak will be found to
be not only more powerful than steam, but
will be worked with entire safety. It can

Hall's Journal of Health enumerates tho
following. The list is capable of being in
definitely extended. Indeed,. if one should
specify all the silly and ridiculous habits and
practices by which the majority of reasoning
mortals are injuring themselves, he would
make a chapter as long as the Atlantic cable.
Walking along the streets with the point
of an umbrella sticking out behind, under
the arm, or over the shoulder. By suddenly
stopping to speak to a friend, or other cause,
a person walking in the rear had his brain
penetrated through the eye, in one of our
streets, and died in a few days.
Stepping in a church aisle, after dismission,
and standing to converse with others, or to
allow occupants of the same pew to pass out

To carry a long pencil in vest or outside
coat pocket. Not long since, a clerk in New
York fell, and the long cedar pencil so pierced
an important artery, that it had to be cut
down upon from the top of the shoalder to
prevent his bleeding to death, with a three
months' illness.
To take exercise or walk for the health,
when every step is a drag, and instinct urges
to repose.
To guzzle down glass after glass of cold
water, on getting up in the morning, without
any feeling of thirst, under the impression of
the health-giving nature of its washing-out
To sit down to a table and force yourself for
eat, when there is not only no appetite but a
positive aversion of food.
To take a glass of soda, or toddy, or sanga
ree, or mint drops on a summer day, under
the belief that it is safer and better than a
glass of cold water.
To economise time, by robbing yourself of
necessary sleep, on the ground that an hour
saved from sleep is an hour gained for life,
when in• reality it is two hours actually lost,
and a half-dozen hours actually spoiled.

When the world was created we find there

Noah bad but three eons ; Jonah was three
days in the whale's belly ; our Saviour passed
three days in the tomb. Peter denied his
Saviour thrice. There were three patriarchs
—Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Abraham en
tertained three angels. Samuel was called
three times. "Simon, lovest thou me ?" was
repeated three times. Daniel was thrown in
to the den with three lions, for praying three
times a day. Shadrach, Mesehech and Abed

oven. The Ten Commandments were deliv

these three. Those famous dreams of the ba

the Roman motto was composed of three
words, In hoc signo. There are three condi

There is also a Holy Trinity. In mythology,
three Graces ; Cerebus, with three heads ;
Neptune holding hie three toothed staff; the
Oracle of Delphi cherished with veneration
the tripod ; and the nine Muses sprang from
three. In nature, we have morning ; noon
and night. Trees grow their leaves in three;
there is the three leaved clover. Every ninth
wave is a ground swell. We have fish, flesh
and fowl. The majority of mankind die at
