MONTROSE, PA., WEDNESDAY, SEPT. 7, 1870.
now a Grumbler Was Cured
A DOMESTIC SKETCH
Many a wife is grievonslY wounded by
the constant and unnecessary fault-find
ing of her husband over the food which
she has prepared, often with direct refer
once to his expressed predilections. Often
time woman have been heard to declare
that the first few years of bouselr6eping
were made wretched by this.
I have known a man to leave a fifth
rate boarding-house, where soiled table
cloths were the rule, and sloppy tea, tur
bid coffee, and the inevitable "hash," were
not the exception; and sitting opposite
his young wife at their own table, mercil
lessly stab her with unjust remarks upon
-the well-cooked meal before him, just as
if he were not voraciously devouring bet
ter food than he had ever been accustom
Perhaps this fanit-finding has the same
effect upon the appetite as-a celebrated
table-sauce has, for the habitual grumbler
generally eats with a relish of the con
demned dish, thereby giving the lie to his
words. The following story contains its
" Mary, your corn bread is never done ;
I wonder what is the reason everybody
else has things right and we always have
things wrong ?"
" Why, Joe, I am sure the Corn bread
has never been in this state before. You
see the fire 'had a fit,' and couldn't be
made to burn this morning."
"0, yes, you are always ready with an
excuse. Now, there is Mrs. Smith; her
stove never has fits. And she always has
the lightest, sweetest bread, and the nicest
cake and preserves I ever ate. I wish
you'd take pattern by her.
" Well, I am sure, Joe, I do my best,
and I think I succeed oftener than I fail.
I wish I could suit you always; but that,
suppose, can scarcely be espected," and
Mary gave a weary sigh.
Mary Starr had been married about a
year, during which time she had found
housekeeping rather up-hill wdrk. She
was a neat little body, and conscientiously
did her very best to please her husband ;
but he, whatever might be the reason,
was very hard to please—in fact, seemed
determined not to be pleased with any
thing she did. Perhaps, like the old sol
diers in one of Dickens' stories, he had
a vital and constant seas, that "ii scipline
must be mamtainetl." At any rate, he
never allowed Mary to be plea , ed with
herself on any occasion, if he could help
Mary was an amiable wife, fortunately,
as al not ea.stly irritated ; though to ‘ll i
the truth, there were tirne4 '" h— h ` . R. ''' .
bearancc was severely tried. For instance ,
whenever she and Joe took tea out, or I
went to a party; or .even to church, sel
dom allowed the opportunity to pass un-
embraced to animadvert upon some deli-
ciency in cookery, or manners, of dress, ;
on the part of his wife, :mil that in pub- ;
lie. For instance. it would be—
" Mrs. Jones. what beautiful sponge
you make! Marv, take notice how
light this cake is. I wonder why von
can never have it so puffy. - Or. "'firs. 1
Brown con certainly are an adept at en- ;
tertainiiq company. I wisfi Mary that '
you would try to. steal Mrs. Brown's - art:
Or, "Mrs. Green; your dress is always
most becoming your taste is exquisite.
I don'tilee iihy it is, Mary; that with all
I. , fipcnd for you, yob never can reach the
piquant style of Mrs. Green."
On these occasions Mary would blush
and bite her lip, And be inwardly annoy
ed. but she was a woman of too much
pride and good sense to make a display of
her chagrin ; and she was really too good- I
natured and Christian a person to let it
change her feelings towards' Joe, whom
she knew Vibe, after all, very fond of her
and a very just man at heart. After a
while, too, seeing that the fault was prob
ably curable, she bethought herself how
she should proceed in order to brake him
of his disagreeable habit.
Fortune favored her. One day a lady,
one of her most valbed friends and best
neighbors, called to invite Joe and Mary
to a tearrty, at her house.
"It will be a small affair," said she,
"but very pleasant, I think. Yon only
are wanted to make the scale of harmony
" Well," said Mary, "I will come, Mrs.
Vane, on one condition."
"Condition! Is it come to this,that you
must make 'conditions? Well, my, dear
Make your demand."
" The condition is," said Marv, "that
. yon will allow me to furnish all 'the re
" Well, that is an odd idt. Mary. my
dear, I hope you don't mean to insinuate
that I am getting poor r
• "No Hattie ; thank fortune, she has
showed her favors upon you quite libentl-
Cy. But I have a hotion for this, which
if 'you please, I will'not divulge; only let
me have my way this once, just for the
oddity of the tiling,"
'" If any body but you, Mary, had •made
such a request of . me. I certainly shieild
have taken offence. But I.never could be
angry with you. ;/So, if it Will be any sat
.isfaction to you—though for the lite of
me I can't imagine what your drift is—
I will accept your conditions. When
may I expect -my supplies ?"
"Let me see; to-morrow is my baking
day, and your tea-party isuot to be before
Thursday. ,on Wednesday after
nooon you shall Are supplied with bread,
I biscut, cake, and all the other accessories;
and mind, the only thing I allow yon to
furnish is butter, which I do not make."
"Very well; ies settled, then, and I
I will leave you. On the whole, this ar-
I rangement suits me; it relieves me of a
great responsibility, for your cookery is
well known to be particularly nice. So
good-by till Thursday."
" Mind yotriaY nothing about • this.
Hattie. to an Otte • it is a secret of ,mine."
" Very:well, as you say; I'll keep mum.
Good:by again, for you will k have your
I hOndsftill i atid must not intelrupt you."
So off Mrs. Vane went, inwardly won
deriut.Whitt'erochet demure little Mary
hailgot into her steady little head.
EverY thing came off on that baking
day precisely as Mary could have wished
it. Her bread was light and sweet, and
white as a snow-Hake, with just a golden
brown line of Crest surroundnig it; her
cakes were perfeetiou ; her crullers crisp
and delicioos. Then she knew that her
preserved fruits were nice, and if ever
:there was sponge cake more like solified
froth she would like to see it. Every
thing was sent into Mrs. Vane on Wed
ensday after noon, and she had all Thurs
day to devote to her dress.
Mary looked' very pretty that night at
the ten-party, for her eyes shone with a
purpose, and she had just enough excite
ment about it to redden her cheeks in a
very becoming manner. Add to this that
she was dressed. with neatness and taste,
and you will not be unwilling to believe
me when I say that she was quite th e
belle of the occasion. Joe evidently
thought so himself ; for, strange to say, ho
made no remark on her appearance that
night calculated to lower herself-esteem ;
but, contrariwise, gazed at her from time
to time with the most profound satisfac
But "murder will out." It came out on
this occasion when they sat down to sup
per. Every body was delighted; there
had not. been such an uneseeptional"tea"
in that neighborhood for a long time.
Country people are very fond of their
"teas," they compare one with another
with admirable conatiosseurship. This
one was a triumph.
" Mrs. Vane, you are the protection of
bread makers.. Your biseuts are quite
beautiful. Were ever such crullers made?
How do you manage it Mrs. Vane? What
lovely sponge cake!"
Mrs. Vane and Mary occasionally
changed glances and smiled, but nobody
Joe had been behaving so beautifully
all the evening, that Mary began to be
afraid her plans had failed. He came out.
now, however, greatly to her satisfaction.
"This is a feast, indeed," he said. "A
fellow is fortunate who has a wife that
can make such bread as this, to say noth
ing of the sponge cake. I can't see why
it is Mary ; yon improve, it is true ; I give
yon credit for that ; but I don't see how
it is that all women cannot have the
knack that Mrs. Vane has of cooking to
perfection. If you could make such
bread as this, Mary, your husband would
be a happy man."
Mrs. Vane looked at Mary, and Mary
looked at Mrs. Vane. .Light had broken
upon the mind of the latter. It broke
like a flash of lighting, and then there
was an explosion—not of thnntler,but of
.Joe looked up amazed. He was a man
who petted his dignity enormously. What
did these women mean, to laugh so at a
sober, sensible remark of his ? Particular
,: - Xca'ry mean to so trifle
with the respect .
Ile began to grow red indeed. Mrs.
Vane saw it. presently, and came to his
and Mary's relief; for poor Mary began to
be a little frightened at the success of her
scheme. She did m,t. like Joe to be angry
at au v rate.
gr. Starr," said Mrs. Vane, "I am
truly glad you like this very excellent
cookery, for it is all your wife's. By your
.you ought to be a very hap
py mall. -
Here the whole company caught" the
infection, and joined in the laugh against
Joe. It was of no use to get angry with
so mane people; so, before lung, Joe
joined the chorus himself.
And so the tea-party broke up with the
greatest good•nature all round, and Joe
went home with a lesson he never forgot;
for it was the last time that Mary ever
heard any more complaints from him.
He is now the most easily pleased of any
husband for ten tidies around.

There lives now - , in Coffee county, I
Tennessee, an old man in his 86th year—
Gen, Wm. Moore. He was with Gen.
Jackson in the war of 1812—was with
him in his Indian wars.. On one occasion,
when Gen. Jackson called for one hund
red young men to wade The river and join
Gen. Coffee, Capt. Moore stepped out and
walked down the lines and brought back
his men who waded the river, though
there was ice in it. At the battle of Tal
adega he was wonnded in the ankle by a
poisoned arrow. From his wound he has
never recovered. The town of Hunts
ville. Ala., would have been destroyed by
the Indians but for the energy and bold
ness of Moore. He was then living in
Fayetteville, Tennessee. The morning
alter he heard the Indians were marching
on Huntsville he had raised one hundred
and fifty men, and was on the march to
meet the hostile foe. He met seven hund
red Indians nt Ditto's landing and held
them in check until Gen. Jackson came
IT. In the late war he was a decided
nion man until the fight commenced,
and then the honest, faithful, brave old
soldier went with his own country. He
was the bearer of the vote of the secession
of Tennessee to Richmond. This lost
him his pension.
There lives, now in New Orleans,
another, soldier, not so old as the one who
is noticed above, whose early history is
less known. Now, however, he is well
known throughout the Union. In the
late struggle between the North and
South, Gen. Longstreet was one of Gen.
Lee's generals, in all his battles around
Richmond. Thousands and ten thous
ands of Federal soldiers lost their lives in
their battles with Gen. Longstreet's Con
federate command. General Longstreet
with his arm} marched through East
Tennessee. lie it was who besieged
Knoxville. Who of the people of our
section of the State will ever cease to re
member Longstreet's march through the
country' Ile was fighting for slavery—
fighting for secession. For this, tit the
close of the war Gen. Longstreet was re
warded by Gen. Grant with the best office
within his gift.
Moore fought against, the Indians,
fought against the British. and carried to
Richmond the vote of Tennessee when
she seceded. For this he lost his pension.
Longstreet fought to maintain the in
stitution of slavery, fought to sever the
South from the North—fought to es
tablish a Southern Confederacy. For
this he won a support from the Union he
attempted to destroy.
It was a Mulical President and a Radi
cal congress that lost Moore his pension.
It was a Radical President and a Rath
Rising In the World.
You should bear constantly in mind
that nine-tenths of us are, from the very
nature and necessities of the world, born
to earn our livelihood by the sweat of our
brow. What reason have we then to
presume that our children are not to do
the same? If they be—as now and then
one will be—endowed with extraordinary
powers of mind,those powers may have
an opportunity of developing themselyes ;
and if they never have that opportunity,
the harm is not very great to us dr to
them. Nor does it hence follow that the
descendants of laborers are always to be
laborers. The path upwhrd is steep and
long, to be sure. Industry, care, skill, ex
cellence in the present parents lay the
loundation of a rise under more favorable
circumstances for the children. The
children of these take another rise ; and
by and by the descents of the present
laborer becomes gentlemen. This is
natural progress. y attempting to
reach the top at a single leap that so
much misery is produced in the world ;
and the propriety to make such at
tempts has been cherished and encourag
ed by the strange projects that we have
witnessed of late years for making the
laborers virtuous and happy by giving
them what is called education.
The education we speak of consists in
bringing up children to labor with steadi
ness, with tare, and with skill; to show
them how to do as many useful things as
possible • to teach them how to do them
all in the best manner • to set them an ,
example of industry, sobriety, cleanliness,
and-neatness; to make all enese habitual
to them, so that they shall never be liable
to 'fall into the contrary Ipractices; to let
them alWays see a gOod living proceeding
from labor, and thus to remOve:from them
the-temptation to get at the goods of
others by violent or fraudulent means;
and to-keep far from their minds all the
inducement' to. hypoerisy and deceit
