For tUe Mother's Sake.
A young man, who had left bis homo in
Maine, ruddy snd vigorous, was seized with
the. yellow lever, in New Orleans; and, though
nursed with devoted care by friendly strangers
he died. When the coffin was being closed'
"fiTOP," said an aged woman who was present:
"Let jie kiss him for ma mother !'
Let mo kiss him for his mother,
Ere ye lay him with the dead,
Far away from home, another
Sure may kiss him in her stead.
IIow that mother's lip would kiss him,
Till her heart 6hould nearly break 1
How in days to come she'll miss him 1
Let me kiss him for her sake.
Let nie kiss him for his mother 1
Let me kiss the wandering boy:
It maybe there is no other
Left behind to give her joy.
When the news of woe the morrow
Burns her bosom like a coal.
She may feel this kiss of sorrow
Fall as balm upon her soul.
Let mo kiss him for his mother I
Heroes ye, who by his side
Waited on him as a brother
Till the Northern stranger died,
Heeding not the foul infection,
Breathing in the fever-breath,
Let me, of my own election,
Give the mother's kiss iu death,
Let me kiss him for his mother I
Loving thought and loving deed I
Seek no tear nor sigh to smoother,
U eh tie matrons, while ye read,
Thank the God who made you human,
Gave ye pitying tears to sheed ;
Honor ye the Christian woman
Bending o'er another's dead.

Lee was getting supper, and ehc moved
about with a weary step.
'Come," the said at last, with a side
glance at her husband.
There was invitation in the word only,
none in the voice of Mrs. Lec.
Andrew arose and went to the table.
lie was tempted to speak an angry word,
but controlled himself, and kept silence,
lie could find no fault with the chop, nor
the sweet home-made bread, nor the fra
grant tea. They would have cheered his
inward man, if there had only been a
gleam of sunshine on the face of his wife.
He noticed that she did not eat.
"Are you not well, Mary ?" The words
were on his lips, but he did not utter
them, for the face of his wife looked so
repellant that he feared an irritating re
ply. And so, in moody silence, the twain
sat together until Andrew had finished his
supper. As he pushed his chair back,
his wife arose and commenced clearing off
''This is purgatory 1" said Lec to him
self, as he commenced walking the floor of
their little breakfast room, with his hands
thrust desperately away down in his trous
ers' pockets, and his chin almost touching
After removing all the dishes, and ta
king them into the kitchen, Mrs. Lee
Fpread a green cover on the table, and
placing a freshly tiimined lamp thereon,
went out, and shut the door after her,
leaving her husband alone with his un
pleasant feelings. He took a long, deep
breath as she did so, paused in his walk,
stood Ptill for a few moments, and then
drawing a paper from his pocket, sat down
and commenced reading. Singularly
enough, the words on which his eyes res
ted were, "Praise your wife." They rather
tended to increase the ttisturoance oi imuu
from which he was suffering.
"I should like to find some occasion for
praising mine." IIow quickly his thoughts
expressed that ill-natured sentiment. JJut
his eyes were on the page before him, and
he read on. t
"Praise your wife, man ; for pity's sake
give her a little encouragement ; it won't
Andrew Lee raised his eyes from the
paper, and muttered, "Oh, yes ! that's all
very well. Praise is cheap enough. But
praise her for what ? For being sullen,
and making your home the most disagree

again to the paper.
fciic has made your home comfortable,
expect it : it will make her eves or.cn wi.
der than they have for ten years ; but it
will do her good for all that, and you too."
It seemed to Andrew that this sentence
was written just for him, and just for the
occasion. It was the complete answer to
his question, "Praise her for what ?" and
he folt it also as a rebuke. He read no
further, for thought came too busy, ami
in a new direction. Memory was convic
ting him of injustice towards his wife.
She had always made his home as comfor
table for him as hands could make it, and
had he offered the light return of praise
or commendation ? Had he ever told her
of the satisfaction he had known, or the
comfort experienced ? Ho was not able
to recall the time or the occasion. As he
thought thus, Mrs. Lee came iu from the
kitchen, and taking her work-basket from
a closet, placed it on the table, and sitting
down without speaking, begau to sew. Mr.
Lee glanced almost stealthily at tho work
in her hands, and saw that it was the bo
som of a shirt, which she was stitching,
lie knew that it was for him that she was
at work. "Praise your wife." The words
were before the eyes of his mind, and he
could not look away from them. But he
was not ready for this yet. He still" felt
moody and unforgiving. The expression
of his wife's face he interpreted to mean
ill nature, and with ill nature he had no
patU-nce. I lis eye fell upon the newspa
per that lay spread out before him, and
he read the sentence
"A kind cheerful word, spoken in a
gloomy home, is like a rilt in a cloud, that
lets the sunshine through."
Lee struggled with himself a while lon
ger. His own ill nature had to be con
quered first; his moody, accusing spirit
had to be subdued. But he was coming
right, and at last got right, as to will.
.Next came the question as to how he
should begin, lie thought of many things
to say, yet feared to say them, lest hi.s wile
should meet his advauccs with a cold re
buff. At last, leaning towards her, and
takng hold of the Hnen bosom upon
which she was at work, he said, in a voice
carefully modulated with kindness
"You are doing that work very beauti
Mrs. Lec made no reply. But her hus
band did not fail to observe that she lost,
almost instantly, that rigid erectness with
which the had been sitting, nor that the
motion of her needle ceased.
"My shirts are better made, and whiter
than those of any other man in the bhop,"
said Lee, encouraged to go on.
"Are they V Mrs. Lee's voice was
low, and had in it a slight lutskiucss. She
did not turn her face, but her husband
saw that she leaned a little towards him.
He had broken through the ice of reserve,
and all was easy now. I lis hand was
among the clouds, and a few feeble rays
were already struggling through the rift
it had made.
"Yes, Mary," he answered, softly, "and
I've heard it said more than once, what a
good wile Andrew Lee must have.
Mrs. Lee turned her face toward her
husband. There was light in it, and light
in her eye. But there was something in
the expression of the countenance that a
little puzzled him.
"Bo you think so ?" ehc asked, quite
"What a question !" ejaculated Andrew
Lee, starting up and going round to the
side of the table where his wife was sit
ting. "What a question, Mary I" he re
peated, as ho stood before her.
"Do you V It was all she said.
"Yes, darling," was the warmly spoken
answer, and he stooped down and kissed
her. "How strange that you should ask
me suoh a question !"
"If you would only tell me so now and
then, Andrew, it would do mc good ;" aud
Mrs. Lee arose, and leaning her face
against the manly breast of her husband,
stood and wept.
What a stronpr liprht broke in upon the
mind of Andrew Lee. He had never giv
en to his faithful wife even the small re
ward of uraise for all the loving interest
sIia had manifested dailv. until doubt of
his love had entered her soul, and made
the lijrht around her thick darkness. No
wonder that her face grew clouded, nor
that what he considered moodiness and
ill nature took possession of her spirit.
'f You are good and true, Mary, my own
dear wife. I am proud of you 1 love
you and lhy first desire is for your hap
piness. Oh, if I could always see your
face in sunshine, my home would be tho
dearest place on earth.
"How precious to mc arc your words of
love and praise, Andrew," said Mrs. Lee,
smiling up through her tears into his tace.

A Sistkr's Love. There are no purer
feelings kindled upon the altar of human
affections than a sister's pure, nuonntami
uated love for her brother, It is unlike
all other affections so disconnected with
selfish sensuality so feminine in its de
velopment dignified, and yet, withal, so
fond and devoted. Xothinar can alter it
nothing can suppress it. Tho world
may revolve, and its revolutions effect
changes in the fortune, in the character,
and in the disposition of the brother yet
if he wants, whoso hand will so speedily
stretch out as that of his sister ? And if
his character is maligned, whose voice will
so readily swell in hi.s advocacy? Next
to mother s unquenchable love, a sister s
is pre-eminent. It rests so exclusively on
the ties of consanguinity for its sustenance,
it is so wholly divested of passion, and
springs from such a deep recess in the
human boom, that when a sister once
fondly and deeply regards her brother, that
affection is blended with her existence.
In the anuals of crime, it Is considered
something anomalous to find the hand of
a sister raised in anger against her broth
er, or her heart nurturing the seeds of
envy, hatred or revenge, in regard to that
brother. In all affections of woman there
is a devotedncss which cannot be pronerly
apprcciated by man. In these regards
where the passions are not at all necessa
ry in increasing the strength of the affec
tions, more sincere truth and pure feelings
may be expected than in such as are de
pendent upon each other for their dura
tion as well as their felicities. A sister's
love, in this respect, is peculiarly remark
able. There is no selfish irratiticatiou in
its out-pourings; it lives from the natural
impulse, and personal charms are' not in
the slightest degree necessary to its birth

without which inward and outward purity
neither of you are fitted for husband or
wife if you love virtue and abhor vice
if you are gentlemanly, forbearing and
kind, not loud talking, exacting and bru
tal ; then, young man, that woman wants
you that fair, modest, cheerful, bright
looking, frank-spoken woman we mean
one who fills your ideal of maiden and

Sacked Wobps. Words are often as
uuforgetable as voiceless thoughts; they
become very thoughts themselves, and ore
what they represent. How many simple,
rudely, but fervently and beautifully rhy
med psalms of David, are very part and

the Scottish peasants being :
"The Lord's my shephard, I'll not want,
He makes me down to lie
la pastures green : lie leadeth me
The quiet waters by."
These few lines sanctify to the thought

that glides through the solitary places
they have often given colors to the green

and of all flowers. Thrice hallowed is all

From the hands of the benevolent Be
ing who sitteth upon the "circle of the
universe," directing the destiny of the hu
man family, we receive naught to injure
or molest us all his dispensations are for
our good, and that only and all his gifts
are for our happiness while upon the
earth. Those mighty engines of human
destruction, which damn our earth and
obscure heaven, are of human origin and
human invention. Bum, the great sire
of them all, was conceived, concocted, and
created by man, for nowhere in creation
can it be fuond among the gifts of our
Heavenly Father. We affirm that in all
the world nay in all the universe of God,
there is not a lake, a river, a streamlet, or
a fountain of intoxicating drinks. There
is no such a thing in nature. Water,
God has everywhere given, spread it all
over the world, sent it down from the
clouds, sent bubbling up from the earth,
made it journey in ceaseless activity iu
rills and great rivers towards the ocean
lie has, wherever man can live, given it
to him at his very door, but intoxicating
drinks he has provided nowhere on the
face of the whole earth. That "gift,"
whether good or evil, is not the gift of
God, but the iuvention of man an. inven
tion that ha.s destroyed more sorrow and
anguish, than war, pestilence and famine
combined. It mav, by many, be thought
a questionable policy to deprive men of
the use of it by legitimate enactment, but
to call intoxicating drinks the "Good gilt
of God," is an abuse of terms, and a burn
ing reproach upon the benevolence and
holy attributes of the Deity.
An accident occurred on one of
our railroads recently, caused by the axle
of the tender giving way, detaining the
train several hours. A lady inquired of

lady looked serious, and was bilent.
