The Question Answered.
Somebody--a man, man, of course—in
quires why, when Eve was manufac
tured from the spare-rib, a servant
wasn't made at the same time to ;wait
on leer? Somebody else—a woman, we
imagine—replies in the following
"Because Adam never came wilining
to Eve,land with a ragged stocking to
be darned, collar string to be sewed , on,
or a glove to mend, 'right - away, quick
now Because be never read the news
papers, until the sun got down behind
the palm trees, and then stretching
himself, yawned out, 'Ain't supper
west ready, my dear?' Not he. He
made the fire, and hung therkettle over
it himself, we'll venture, and pulled the
radishes, peeled the - potatoes, and did
everything else he ought to do. 'He
matted the cows, fed the chickens, and
looked after the pigs himself. He never •
brought home half a dozen friends to
dinnei when . Eve hadn't any fresh
tteimegmnatee, and the mango season
was over. He never Stayed. Out till
eleven o'clock to a ward meeting, bur
rahing for an out-alfd-out candidate;
arid then scolded because poor Eve was
sitting up 'and crying inside tbe gates—
never played billiards, rolled ten-pins,
and drove fast horses, nor choked Eve
with cigar -smoke. He never - loafed a
round corner groceries while Eve was
rocking little Cain's cradle at home.
In short, he didn't think that she' was'
especially created for the purpose of
waiting on him, and wasn't under the
.impression that it disgraced a man to
lighten a wife's chres. That's the re.a.
son that Eve did not need a hired:, girl
and with it, was the reason that libr fair

A Beautiful Sentiment
In A gustin Duly's gred play, "I:Yr-,
dor the aslight,” Laura CoUrtland ut,' -
tena the beautiful -sentiments: -
" Let he woman you
-look ',upon be
wise or vain, beautiful or homely, rich
or poor, she has but one thing ease can
give or refuse—her heart. Her beauty, -
her wit, her accomplishments, she may
sell to you—but her love is the tifeasure
without money and without price. She
only asks in return that when you look
upon her, your eyes shall speak n mute
devotion; that when -yell address her,
your voice) shall be . gentle, loving and
kind ; that you shall . not despise her
because she canna understand all at
once, ydu! vigorous thoughts and ambi
tious plans ;—for when misfortune and
evil have defeated your greatest purpo
ses, her love remains to console you.—
You l look upon the treat for strength
and grandeur,-do not dmiiise the flow
ers, because their fragrance is all they
have' to give. Remember, love is all
that a woman can give„—but it is awl
only earthly thing which God permits
us to carry beyond the grave."
