No WONDER.—One Of our most frith
tenable hair dressers tells the 'following
good etory :
An old Quaker lady was standing at
her counter one day, when a gay young
girl came in to engage a hair-dresser For
the evening. She gave her order hu'r
riedly,, saying that she wanted a half_
dozen "rolls" and a butterfly on the
top, a "Grecian" or "waterfall" at the
back, with plenty of "puffs" and "curls, , "
and ended with an injunction to send
along any quantity of "rats," "mice,"
"Poor child I" said the,.dear old lady,
compassionately, looking after her as
she departed—" What a pity she hits

THE MISSION OF THE DEWDROP.
'Tis noon. The heavens' are without
a cloud ; the sun has been pouring his
rays unobstricted upon the earth since
his first appearance aboin the 'eastern
horizon; his' beams increasing in heat as
he pursued his - ceurse' toward the meri
dian. The earth feels' 'his 'scorching
power. The soil firparched'and dry, and
the corn, the clover, the grass and the
flowers are drooping: All vegetation
waste 'a 'withered ' appearance and the
tenderer plants-seein• as if about- to die.
Thus passes the day.' The nun at length
desCends'behind' the 'western hills and
flight dittwit around her Bible' certain.
Look upon the scene ouch more when
morning has again brotight the' light.
The sun is just rising from his eastern
conch, shedding a halo of golden light
over earth and sky. Look at the grass
an &flowers which yesterday Were droop
ing and dying. They no longer wear
this sad appearance ; their leaves spread
Out fresh and green, their stems are erect
and strong. All things seem refreshed
and vigorous. • ,
What has wrought the change?' Do
you see ? From every blade of grass
and corn, from every' leaf of clover, from
the petals of every flower, hangs a dew
drop, sparkling like a diamond in the
morning sunlight. During the coolness
or the"night,- when the burning sun was
gone, these little drops were slowly and
silently formed. They came not like
the raindrops ofthe heavy slimier, but
quietly they gathered upon the drooping
leaves, affording to the thirsty plants
the refreshment they en much needed.
The grateful plants joyfully -receive the
proffered aid and raising 'again their
drooping heads, nut on smiling faceslo
greet the return' of day..
How little is the dewdrop, yet how
great are, its effects I It has revived
the withered vegetation and imparted
to it new life, and vigor. It has changed
the face of the' landscape fromgloom to
Yet it made no 110i80. No sound
gave notices:tits coming,. It came in
the darkness of the night, unnoticed and
unseen. 13fthe time the inn has made
onefourth the circuit of the skies, it
will be dried up, but its mission will
have been accomplished. The plants
on which it had gathered will be better
able to endure the scorching heat of
another day, whereas, but for the refresh
ing dew they would droop still more
and die. This, thep, was the mission
of the dewdrop ; toleyivpthe drooping,
May we not learn lessons from the
little dewdrop,? Like it we each have
a mission to fulfill, a work to do. Most
of us perhaps, have silent• missions ; not
such as shall tend to spread our fame
and make us, widely known ; but our
mission may be among the lowly, when,.
unobserved by the busy world, 'we may
,be active, bearing comfort to thesorrow
ful, hope to the boneless, assistance to
the needy. There are many, many dr4iop
ing, dying , ones in life 'to whom a kind
word of sympathy and a pleasant smile
would be as the refreshing dew to 'the
Let each go forth then and wait upon
his mission, discharging faithfully its
duties, and though the sun of life be too
,hot for him and like the dew he tall ere
the day is spent, yet will:his mission not
have been in vain.

A. Chapter. of Mormon, Life,
The following lifstoiy Of one of the
victims of mormoniom is 'from the St.:
JesePh, Missouri, Herald
Somewhat over one year ago, a young
lady' left her home iii` ketifisylvania—a
home , where-all the of life•were
at her command. • . Her parents were in
dulgent, and she, 'an only child, NM'
loved by them 'with all the. fondness of
true parental affection. No wish of hers
remained ungratified, for she was the
idol of those parents, acid the light of
the hothe made " desolate by an act which
will forever cast its shadow pislher , heart.
In February, 1864, she beezine abquitin i
ted Wail a Miirmen i)reaCher, who Plait : .
ted to her m glowing terms the glories
of Utah and tho'llormon He
told her of the beautiful valleYs'of Utah,
fortified on all sides by giant 'mountains,
whose peaks, burnished by eternal
snows, looked doWn upon the valley of
Verpetual green, peopled by God'if own
chosen kindred, who ; were free as the
mountain torrents that leap the 'rock's
of lofty Timpanago's' range. He told
her of , the content and peace reigning
among the saints,,and assured her• ,that
the Mormons were Grod's own" peculiar
pbople, and so worked upon her imagin
ation, •that Bbe.tioally consented to leave
friends, family and,all the endearments
of home, and go with him to the. Valley
of the Saints. Arriving,at ,Chicago, he
forced her to marry him, the ceremony
being perforwoli by.a, mock Priest, with
out record or license.
In April she left Wyoming, Nebraska,
with a Mormon train, for the land of
-promise, and finally arrived in the city
of the spines. Here she found that her
husband had four other wives, who re
garded her with no tender emotions, but
heaped abase and contumely upon 'her
head: After a few months •her liege
lord =told her he had concluded to seal
her to 'another, who had taken a greet
fancy to her.; that his ether 'wives,were
jealous, and'declared his last 'wife should
live with-him no longer. She .declared
she•Wonld die before ehe•would thus be
put away and forced to live as the wife
Of a man with••whom she had'no acquain
tance, and had Seenibut once. in her life.
Her husband told her that it was Brig
ham's order and she must do so or lose
her, life. Determined not *to be - thus
sacrificed, she started to run away, with
the intention of 'making her way to
Camp Breckenridge, in Cedar Valley,
then garrisoned by United States • trooPs
_and claim protection there. She started
on foot, and after travelling at least ten
miles was caught and 'brought back,
placed in a dungeon, or rather a cellar,
and Was thus kept for 'a month, with
just enoligh-food yto sustain. life. The
.man whom she:refused to live with ire
quently visited .her, and besought.her to
change her resolution in order to save
her life. Througliforce of circumstances
she at last yielded, and-was duly install
‘ed in•the family as his sixth•wife. Here
she found, as before, the' jealousies and
quarrels arising_ were intolerable, and
she again determined to escape- or die
in the attempt. This time she succeed
ed in reaching: the headquarters of Gen
eral Connor, to whom she told her tale
of euffering. The General sent her
through to the States with a GOvern-
Merit train bound for Fort Keitiney,
which place she reached a few week's
ago. She is now in this city which she
she will soon leave, a repentant and sor

"It is more varied in its temperature
than. any : other State in existence. In

sweets of the #owers of Hymen. In
some,parts ; the inhabitants experience a
freezing cold reception when they ex

parts there Is all the burning sensation
