Father In Heaven I
Full many a soul-sick, sinful, sorrowing child,

'Father in Heaven.
Such a little witch as she was, this Kitty
Day ; of whom I write. She couldn't help
flirting if she tried; and it wasn't her fault,
of course, if men were taken in by the
round, childish face and great, innocent
blue eyes; for they were, scores pf them,
and Kitty went on her way rejoicing—com
pleting their bewilderment by the shy looks
and smiles and blushes that really meant
nothing, but were very effective, neverthe
But in an unlucky hour for Kitty she said
" Yes" to a dark, melancholy young man
who had been her shadow for mouths, She
wasn't in earnest, but did it for the "fun
of the thing," and because she wanted to
know how it felt to be " engaged." ' It re ,
suited seriously, however, fur, in spite of
express commands to the contrary, the ac
cepted suitor went directly to her father
and told him all about it. Mr. Day looked
at his daughter mischievously that night as
she sat behind the tea urn with such a corn
ical assumptiop of dignity.
" Scz I'm to lose my little housekeeper be- ,
fore long,;; am I?" questioned he, .signill
" Why, papa, what do you mean ?" And
Kitty blushed scarlet.
" Nlr. Gilbert called on me to-day. He is
an excellent young man, and the son of one
of my oldest friends. I heartily approve
your choice, my dear."
"He promised to keep the engagement a
secret," said Kitty in a vexed tone. .
" So he told me, but concluded afterward
to break his promise rather• than act dishon
estly; for it wouldn't have been quite fair
to have concealed the engagement from
"I don't know why, I'm sure. It's only
a bit of my fun, any way. I never meant
to marry him:"
Mr. Day looked at her sternly.
"I'm not jesting," she added pettishly.
"He threw himself into such a passion that
I was fairly frightened into saying 'yes,' and
sorry enough I've been for it since.'
"Are you in earnest, Kitty?"
"Yes, I am;" and the blue eyes flashed
"Is it possible that a daughter of mine
has so little feeling and principle?"
"Now, papa, what is the use of lectur
ing? You know me of .old. I'm in trou
ble, and want you to help me out of it."
"But you have given your word, Kitty,
and must abide by it."
" Didn't lie break his?"

Father in Heaven.
The following beautiful poeui was written by , an in
mate of Slochloy Aluinhouse, by the name of Witham
Father in Heaven! •
Immortal Oodhead, Hefty profnuud,
How duth Thy matchless mercy close me round, '
Thy love unfatboniable, grace unbound,
• Profusely given,
Ceaseless my soul Thy praises shall resound,
rt.; ber in Heaven.
• Father in Heaven!
The earth, the air, the sea uplifted high.
The azure-aiched, ethereal, slur-gemmed *IV ..
Reverberate Thy praise, and should not I,
To whom is given
All to enjoy, and more, if Thou be nigh,
Father in Heaven?
Father in Heavenli
There's not A pebble laved by purling stream, •
Or gem, whose radiance wakes poetic dream,
Oi lily of the vale, or bright auroral beam
Prom Orient driven,
But glows Thy praise in love adorning gleam,
Father in Heaven.
Father in Heaven I
There's not au echo o'er the distant hills.
From mute mused melody of mountain rine
Tp Jove's dread clamors—but Thy presence fills
From morn to even.
For Thee to silent ae - e my bosom thrills,
Father in Heaven!
Father in /leaven
Thy mercy comes to earth's low places like the dew
That leaves the Unbending oak and 'stately yew
To sparkle on the fern and humble rue;
By tempest riven;
But like Thy grace; 'Bs mighty to renew,
Father in /leaven.
"Yes, and was Justified in doing so; but
you are not. Still, I'll giye you a choice of
two evils; if you think the marrying of
young, Gilbert one. Few girls would. Ei
ther keep your promise and make the best
of circumstances, or break it and pass the
winter in the country with your Aunt Dor
othy; for I'm not going to have you play
fast and loose with men's hearts after this
Kitty looked up in her father's face disbe
lievingly, but determination • was written
there, and, filled with sudden dismay, she
began •to plead for a reprieve of the sen
tence; but Mr. Day wouldn't listen. " You
can stay in the city and participate in its
gayeties on one condition only, and that I've
mentioned•," said he. -
"Was ever anything so provoking?" mut
tered Kitty after her father had gone down
town. " Annt Dorothy lives in a forlorn
looking old place, and it's a perfect wilder
ness around her, and papa knows that she
is the crossest old maid in existence. But
Pll be even with him yet."
The next morning Kitty announced her
intention of remaining in the city. " But,
papa, if Mr. Gilbert himself should grow
tired of the engagement after knowing me
better, you'll not punish me for that, will
you?" and her eyes trembled mischievously.
"Certainly not, child. What a question
But Kitty had a motive in it. A plan had
suggested itself to her mind for outwitting
both father and lover. But she didn't tueail
to hurry, and began to pave the way for its
success cautiously. As good luck would
have it, who should call on her that morn
ing but Cousin Joe, the firm ally and abet
tor of all her childish mischief, and as ready
to help her now as then.
" Oh, Joe! such trouble as I'm in;" and
she clasped her hands with a pretty little
gesture of appeal.
"What, you, Kitty? Is your canary !did
fractious? or is it something about a new
dress or bonnet that don't equal your ex
Kitty looked at him so reproachfully that
he was sobered in a minute.
• " Tell me all shout it," -whispered he.
"I'm engaged." And if she'd been an
nouncing her own funeral she couldn't have
done it in a more solemn voice.
Joe flushed up to the roots of his hair,
and clasped and unclasped his hands in
nervous sort of way, but didn't say any
thing. Kitty watched him maliciously.
" it's to that young Gilbert. He's a
. splendid fellow, and has great dark eyes
and the dearest little mustache. You know
him, don't you?"
" No—yes—alittle," stammered Joe, to
the delight .uf his listener: "But what's
the trouble about? Won't your father con
sent?" And he looked so utterly wretched
that Kitty, witka faint twinge of remorse,
hastened to tell him the true state of the
case. He brightened up wonderfully.—
"Then you don't love the man, after all?"
" WOO don't know," she answered mod
ithtively. " I never looked into the matter
much. I suppose he's as good as any- one,
but I'm not in a marrying mood at present."
Joe's countenance fell again. " Will you
sell me just what you want?" said he a little
"Now don't be .cross, Joe: you're the
only friend I've got in the world—" and
Kitty raised her soft eyes imploimgly.

Kitty was the theme of the discourse.

Young - Gilbert listened, shuddering.—

Yes, he recognized it; he heti heard it once

"Don't tell me you didn't mean to," she
screeched more like a mad woman than any
thing else. " You did, you did, you little

of a heavy blow and the shriek of a child.

The Grave of Lincoln's Mother.
A correspondent of the. „Cincinnati , Ge.-
alb; writes: On a beautiful hill top in the
northern part of Spencer county, Indiana,
is the grave of the mother of Abraham Lin
coin. This grave is unmarked' even - by , a
"gravestone." It is now proposed that
this grave shall no longer remain negleetpd.
A. purpose on the part of Mr. Lincoln to re
movefher remains to Springfield, Illinois,
is given as the-reason for this oversight in
relation to his mother's grave.
1 , The citizens of Spencer county have fre
(ineptly talked of a monument, but no defi
nite action has been taken until lately.—
Some, citizens of Indiana have organized,
under the statute provided in such cases, a
legal organiaition or association for the
purpoSe of providing means to erect a suit
able monument to. mark the last resting
place of the mother of Lincoln:
It is expected. that they will devise some
plan, by Which Ithe friends of his country's
martyr shall bergenerally permitted to con
tribute something to this noble purpose.—
'The, officers of the association arc: Gent J.
C. Veatch, President; Iton. R. S. Kerchi
val, Treasurer; Curran A, Deßruler, Sec
retary. Execntive Committee of Board of
Directors—Hon. D. C. Bonham, Colonel J.
S. Weight, Dr. E. U. Sabin. •
The plan of seeming the funds will,be
publicly presented soon, I will suggest the
following as an appropriate inscription:
moTurm OF' LINCOLN."
In a Virginia graveyard is a white moan
meat beating this inscription.: " Mary, the
mother of \Vm.hington."• Is there not a
parallel? Will nor the names of Washing
ton and Lincoln be associated in history?
If there is honor in being the mother of
the Father of his Country, is there not an
honor in being the mother of him who was
the instrument in saving that country in the
hour of peril?

knows "what's what" and when he does he
does not do as nine-tenths of the women do,
who wear thbm, wear the garment he has
worn all day under his night gown: How
