Long years have aped my
Since you and I were wed ;
And their frost has paled thy ruddy cheek
And whitened o'er thy head.
But 'spite that frost, within thy heart
Stilt flows allectioa's tide,
As warm as on that happy morn,
1 proudly hailed the bride.
And though upon thy gentle face.
The dimples that of yore
Solt nestled there have given place
To wrinkles of threescore—
Tne Name kind smile that lit thy brow,
When in thy yonthful prime,
Still plays upon its surface now.
Uniimmed by care or time.
And if perchance, Mirth's brilliant rays
No more beam from thine eye,
As in thy lightsome, girlish days,
When merriment rang hign ;
Yet, when the mournful notes of woe
Fall pleading on thy ear,
That eye's as beauteous through the how
Of .Pity's soothing tear.
Thou bast been, whet' loomed back es night,
'rue guide star of my way;
Thou bast been a gem, whose sparkling light
Ilas brightened life's best day.
And on thy tender, faitlittil !pietist,
When spent with toil or pain,
I've lulled my fevered soul to rest,
And woke to ease again.
And oftentimes when I have flown
From thine and duty's side,
No unkind wood or look has shown,
That grief thou fain wouldst hide;
Thou bast striver. again to win me back,
By cheerful, loving care;
And wooing, keep me in the track,
Through thine example there.
And now my wife, at last we're nigh
The end our mortal tether;
I hope that God may grant, we die,
As we have lived—together,
For lone would be my lot below,
If thou wert from me riven;
And old, and WWl], we'll gladly go,
For youth and rest, to heaven.
She gently laid her hoary hbad
Upon his withered breast ;
No word repiied to what he said,
But mutely she expressed—
In the happy smile that sunned her brow,
The tear within her eye,
"My wish was life with thee, and now,
, Tea with thee, John, to die."
HOW TO COOK A BEEFSTEAK.—A beef
steak ought always to be broiled and
never tried ; 'but the following method
of cooking is recommended by Mrs.
llcton, which even those who are ac
mistimed to frying may be willing to
"The frying pan being wiped very dry
place it. ;you the Stove and let it be
come hot—very but. In the meantime,
mangle the steak—if it chance to be sir
loin, so much the better—pepper and
salt it, then lay it in the tint, dry pan,
which instant.) , cover as tightly as pos
sible. When the raw flesh touches the
heated pan, of course it seethes and ad
heres to it, but in a few seconds it be
comes loosened and juicy. Every bait
minute turn the steak; but be careful to
keep it as much as possible undercover.
Wheu nearly dune lay a small piece of
butter upon it, and if you want much
gravy, add a table spoonful of strong
coffee. In three minutes from the time
the steak first goes into the pan it is
ready fur the table. This method of
cooking makes the most delicious, deli
cately broiled steak; lull of juice, yet
retaining the healthful beefy flavor that
any Johu 111 could require The
same method May be applied..to,rantton,
chops, only they require a little longer
cooking to prevent them Irvin being
rare. Au excellent gravy may he made
fur them by ad fling a little cream, thick
ened with a pinch of flour, into which
when off the tire and partly cool, stir in
the yolk of an egg, well beaten."
BIMACII OF Paomisi—A widow of
forty three summers and the mother of
four blooming children, two of whom
are married, lately sued a gay deceiver
for breach of promise. The "deceiver"
is an old man of seve ty sir, the father
of nine children, and the possessor of
two farms. The parties live in Warren
county, Ohio. This aged lover gave the
fat and forty if not fair widow, several
rides in his buggy, to church and other
places, and told the lady that` he might
conclude to marry , some day, and if he
did, bethought she weuld ba the woman.
Upon this hint she acted ; purchasing a
wedding dress, and consulted a few par
ticular friends in regard to the wedding
cake. At this stage, however, the old
man craw-fished—declined to fulfill the
engagement—flatly denied thaehe ever
intended to marry the lady. To heal
her lacerated feelings she brought suit
against the "perfidious old wretch," and
received $2265, which made her happy.

who died withouttlite aid of a physician.'

MARIETTA, SATURDAY MORNING, JULY 21, 1866.
The Ruling Passion Strong in Death.
Old Boge was a WI erly old fellow,
who had accumulated great wealth by
life long penuriousness. But even misers
.have to die some time, and old Boge was
at length called upon to pay that debt
which all must pay, and which is paid as
easily by the man who hasn't got a cent
as by the possessor of millions.
Old Boge was sick unto death, finding
a partial recompense in his sufferings
from the reflection that, as he could not
eat anything, sometliing was being saved.
His physician told him that his end was
rapidly approaching, and as he felt with.
in himself that he was rapidly approach
ing his end, it was evident to old Boge
that he must meet his end very . soon.
" How long have 1 to live ?" asked
old Boge in a faint voice.
"(July half nu hour," said the physi
cian, taking out his watch in a business
like wanner, and then added, "Is there
any one you would like to send fur—a
clergyman, fur lustance ?"
Old Huge: mused in a lethargic way
for a moment, then started up as with
a sudden thought, raised his feeble hand

two weeks growth of gray and stubbed
beard had grown, rhea whispered hur
riedly,-"Quick—bring me— a barber."
The barber came filth his kit, and old
Boge intid, in a voice that was rapidly
" Y uu—charge—ten cents—to—shave

.' Yes, that is our usual price," re
plied the barber.
" What—do you charge—to shave—
dead men ?"
"Una dollar," said the barber, wonder
log what he meant.
"Teen—shave—me—quick," said old
Bogs, nervously eyeing the watch which
the doctor held in his hand, lie was
too weak to speak further, but toe doc
tor interpreted aright the question that
was in his eyes.
'• Fifteen minutes replied the doctor
Old Bop made a feeble motion, as
with a lather brush, and the barber was
at his work in a jiffy. He performed
his tusk with neatness and despatch,
and although the sick man bad several
sinking spells of an alarming nature,
yet be bore up to the end. When the
lust stroke of the razor had been given,
old tinge whispered in tones of satisfac-
- That'll do—ninety cents—saved,'
and inme4iiately expired.

These institutions are much in vogue

A Contented Farmer.
Once upon a time, Frederick, King of
Prussia, s"" roamed Fiitz," took a
ride, and espied au old man plowing his
acre by the wayside, cheerfully singing
" You must be well off, old man,"
said the King. " Does this acre belong
to you on which you so industriously la
" No, sir," said the farmer, who knew
not that it was the King. " I am not
so rich as that ; I plow for wages."
" How much do you get a day 7" asked
"Eight groschtin," . (about twenty
cents,) said the farmer;
"This is not much," said the King.
"Can you get along with this ?"
"Get along and bave"sometbing left."
The fanner smiled and said :--" Well,
if I. must tell you—two groschen are for
myself and wile ; with two I pay my old
•debts; two I lend away, and two I give
away for the Lord's sake."
"This is a mystery which I cannot
solve," Said the King.
"Then I will solve it, for you," said
the farmer. '• 1 have two old parents
at home who kept me when I was weak
and needed help, and now that they are
weak and need help I help them. That
is my debt toward which I pay two
groschen a day. The third pair of gro
schen I lend away I spend for my chil
dren, that they may receive Christian
instruction; This will come handy to
me and toy wife when we get old. With
the last two groschen I maintain two
sisters whom I could not be compelled
to keep. This is what I give for the
Lord's sake." The King, apparently
well pleased with the answer, said :
" Bravely spoken, old man. Now I will
give you something to guess. Have you
ever seen me before I"
" Never," said the farmer.
"In less than five minutes you shall
'see me fifty times, and carry in your
pocket fifty of my likenesses."
"This is a mystery which I cannot
unravel," said the farmer.
" Then I will solve it for you," said
the King. Thrustit . ig his hand into his
pocket, and countitikhiin fifty bran new
gold pieces into his hand, stamped with
his royal likeness, he said to the aston
ished farmer, who knew not what was
coming.: " The ,coin is genuine, for it

Important Truths for Wives.
In domestic happine . ss, the wife's in
fluence is much greater than the hus
band's ; for the one, the first cause—
mutual love , and confidence—being
granted, the whole comfort of the house
bold depends upon trifles more imme
diately under her jurisdiction. By her
management ofsmall sums, her husband's
respectability and credit are created or
destroyed. No fortune can stand the
constant leakages of extravagance and
tnismanagement ; and more is spent in
trifles than women would easily believe.
The one great expense, whatever it may
be, is turned over and carefully reflected
on ere incurred ; the income is prepared
for it; but it is pennies imperceptibly
sliding away that do the mischief ; and
this the wife.alone can stop, for it does
not come within a man's province.
There is often an unsuspected trifle to
be saved in every household. It is not
in economy alone that the wife's atten
tioo is so necessary, but iu those little
niceties which mark a well regulated
household. An unfurnished cruit-stand,
a missing key, a buttonless shirt, a soiled
table-cloth, a mustard-pot with its old
contents sticking hard and brown about
it, and severally nothings ; but each can
raise au angry word and cause discom
fort. Depend on it, there's a great deal
of domestic happiness in a well dressed
mutton chop or a tidy breakfast table.
Men grow sated of beauty, tired of music
are often too wearied for conversation,
( however intellectual ;) but they can
always appreciate a well swept hearth
and smiling comfort. A woman may
love her husband devotedly—may sacri
fice fortune, friends, family, country for
him—she may have the genius of a Sap
pho, the enchanting beauties of an
Armida ; but—melancholy fact—if with
these she fail - to make his home comfort
able, his heart will inevitably escape her.
And women live so entirely in their af
fections that without love their exist
ence is a void. Better submit, then, to
household tasks, however repugnant
they may be to your tastes, than doom
yourself to a loveless home. Women of
a higher order of mind will not run this
risk ; they know that their feminine,
their domestic, - are their first duties.

All About Women
Women, as a general rule, are not
I usefully educated in this country. They
are chiefly taught those accomplish
meats which the experience of their
mothers has proven to be best calculated
to attract young men, and, consequently
to insure husbands. Music, dancing,
French and Italian, are considered
indispensable to the "finish" of any
young lady, in these degenerate days,
but the more solid qualities which, in
the olden lime, were esteemed so neces
ear) io the female catalogue of charms
in the 'good old times,' are out of date.
In Booth, they are pronounced in elegant
society, de trop, and stigmatized as
vulgar. The woman who, not many
years ago, was a non-proficient in the
culinary art, and inexpert with her
needle, was deemed an until candidate
for matrimony. If she could not make
a rare pie, dish up a meal in a peculiarly
attractive style, turn out a superior loaf
of bread, knit a pair of stockings with
taste, and sew up garments with exem
plary celerity, ehe was shunned by the
male sex, and pitied by her own, as sad
ly defective. But now, tout vela eat

performances demonstrates her own on

upon the sound of a piano, and to be
ready, in the most diatre sing moments,
to go off into harmonious ecetacies at
the first intimation of a brilliant duet.

vulgar things 1/13 ehirt buttons—to can•

With this ideal conception of the
character of a husband in their minds,
young ladies necessarily aim only at the
acquisition of corresponding qualifica
tions. They aim at sentimentality and
romance, instead of substantial common
sense, and permanent information !
The result is an exuberance of satisfac
tion during the halcyon days of court
ship, and the saccharine hours of the
honeymoon ; but, when the angel of a
wife' subsides, in time, into the Weep
able domestic partner, and the ' love of
a husband ' degenerates into the satia
ted master of the house, then comes a
season of remorse, of melancholy, of
mutual recrimination and mutual animos
ity. Should fate make such a helpless
wife a widow, and necessity throw her
upon herown resources for the support
of herself and family , unhappy indeed
must she be in her destitution: Her
expensive accomplishments will neither
provide bread fur her children nor con
solution for herself. Music will riot ell
