ILL HEADS PRINTED.
At the Enterprise Office,
Oh ! the Snow, the beautiful snoyv,
Filling the sky and earth below ;
Over the housetops, over the street,
Over the heads of the people you meet ; ;
Beautiful snow ! it can do no wrong.
Flying to kiss a fair lady's cheek.
Clinging 10 lips in a frolicsome freak,
Beautiful snow from the heaven above,
Pure as au angel, gentle as love !
Oh ! the snow; the beautiful snow,
How the (lakes gather and laugh as they go,
Whirling ont in the maddening fun,
It plays in its glee with every one ;
Hurrying by ;
It lights on the face and sparkles the eye!
And the dogs, with a bark and a bound,
Snap the crystals that eddv around ;
The town is alive, and its heart in a glow.
To welcome the coming of beautiful snow !
How wild the crowd goes swaying along.
Hailing each other with humor and song !
Ho the gay sledges like meteors flash by.
Bright for the moment, then lost to the eye;
Dashing they go,
Over the crust of the beautif ul snow ;
Snow so pure when it falls from the sky,
To be trampled in mud by the crowd pass
To be trampled and tracked bv the thousands
Till it blends with the filth 111 the horrible
Once I was pure as the snow but I fell !
Fell like the snow flakes from heaven to hell !
Fell to be trampled as filth in the street;
Fell to be sco lied, to be spit on and beat ;
Dreading; to die.
Selling my soul to whoever would bur.
Dealing in sh&mc for a morsel of bread,
Hating the living and fearing the dead.
Merciful God, have I fallen so low?
And yet I was once like the beautiful snow.
Once I was fair as the beautiful snow.
With an eye like its crystals, a heart like its
Once 1 was loved for my innocent grace
Flattered and sought for the charms of my
God and myself, I have lost by my fall ;
The veriest wretch that goes shivering by,
Will make a wide sweep lest I wander too
For all that is on or above me I know
There's nothing that's pure as the beautiful
How strange it should be that this beautiful
Should fall on a sinner nowhere to go !
How strange it should be, when the night
If the snow and the ice struck my desperate
Too wicked for prayer, too weak for a moan,
To be heard in the streets of the crazy town,
Gone mad in the joy of the snow coming
To be so and die in my terrible woe,
With a bed and a shroud of the beautiful snow.
"THE IIE.VI'TI KUL SXOAW
I sat in my airy room, the cool
winds of Ontario sweeping by me,
with an open scrap book in my
hand. I had just been reading" The
Beautiful Snow," and its sad refrain
was sounding in my ears as the last
dying strain of an Eolan harp, when
my friend entered, and casting his
eyes over the verses I had been read
ing, he surprised me by saying that
he had known the authoress of "The
Beautiful Snow," when she was as
"fair as the snow'' of which she so
Most of your readers have, doubt,
less, read this beautiful and touching
poem, if the latter qualification may
be applied to that which seems the
embodiment of the wail of a lost soul.
Yet, probably but few knew the
name of the author, or, rather, the
authoress, for only a woman's pen
could have written those lines, and
still a less number know the history
of whose bitter experience is embod
ied in the poem of " The Beautiful
Snow." Few poems in the English
language contain more merit, or dis
play a more pathetic conception. It
is the reality of life reality stranger
The maiden name of the authoress
to which we have alluded, was Dora
Shaw. She was born and grew to
womanhood in Wabash, Indiana.
Her parents were not wealthy, as the
world goes, yet honorable, well-to-do,
and happy and wealthy in the pos
session of their beautiful daughter.
As she grew older she grew lovelier
and more beautiful. Iler parents
loved her to idolatry,and by frugality
and self-denial they xvere enabled to
bestow upon her an education second
to none th:t a lady may receive.
Young, handsome, accomplished, she
returned to them from school little
less in their eves, and the eves of the
admiring villagers, than an angel,
whom they might worship, but were
not worthy to keep themselves. Yet
Dora was mortal in her own estitr.a
tion, if etherial in the eyes of her pa
rents; and her heart, as that of any
other maideu, was not proof against
the allurements of Cupid's art and
whom should she love and esteem as
her beau ideal of all that was noble
and good but a young lawyer of her
own village. Undoubtedly he was
poor, and Dora's parents indulged
the fatal delusion that their daugh
ters hand could not be given where
wealth and rank were wanting. Tbey
determined, as so many parents have
done, are doing, and always will do,
to sacrifice their daughter's will, un
mindful of her happiness, upon the

altar of mammon. Perhaps tbey
thought that where wealth and lux
ury would lead, love and happiness
would follow. Kow seldom is thi
the case. What a lesson for parents
the sequel shows !
About this time F. S. LeBaum, a
gentleman of culture and of immense
fortune in St. Louis, visited the re
gion where Miss Shaw lived. He
saw and loved and wooed thisyounir,
beautiful and accomplished flower of
the Iloosier State. In vain did she
tell him that she could never love
him that her love was another's
that she could never give her hand to
one who was not the possessor of her
heart. He still pressed his suit with
importunity, and all the influence his
wealth and her parents could txert
were brought to induce her to wed
him. Although he never gained her
consent, her parents compelled her fo
wed him, and the marriage that fol
lowed was hallowed by no love on
her side, though doubtless her hus
band loved her devotedly, and did
not doubt his ability to teach her to
love him as the years passed by. He
took his young and beautiful bride to
St. Louis, to his splendid residence,
and all that wealth and devoted love
coull bestow was hers. Still she
was not happy ; the beautiful bird
fluttered and worried in her gilded
cage, and only longed to be free.
She was introduced to, and became
the admiration of, the first circles of
society in the city. To the outward
world she now seemed the happiest
of mortals, illustrating the old adage,
that the gayest heart makes some
times the saddest mourning. It was
about this time that the famous the
atrical manager, Ben. DeBir, was in
the zenith of his fame in St. Louis.
He had ihe finest company in the
tn I'M, his leaning star was juiss
Annette luce, no less renowned for
her acting mimic lift; than her beauty
and her many womanly virtues. To
this theatre Mr. and Mrs. LeBaum
went one night, and witnessed a play.
Dora had never been inside a theatre
before, and before the curtain fell
upon the second act, she had taken a
resolution which would change the
whole course of her life she had de
termined to be an nctiess like Miss
An interview with the manager
was easily obtained, who saw in the
aspiration of the lady a chance to
make a splendid hit, and put gold in
his purse. He gave her encourage
ment, dismissed the idea of her first
assuming a second part, but assured
her that she should make her debut in
the leading character of the play she
had witnessed Julia in the "Hunch
back." More than encouraged, in
IV'.. II . I.... !
deed, completely resolved, Dora at
once commenced the study of the play,
and possessing a quick intelligence,
was at least master of the language
in a few days. Private rehearsals
appeared to give perfect satisfaction
to the manager as well as the com-,
pany trained for that particular
purpose and for that occasion. All
this was kept from her husband.
One morning the city was thrown
into a tever by the announcement in
all the journals, that " Miss Dora
Shaw would appear that night as
Julia, in Sheridan Knowles' great
play, entitled the Hunchback.''1 Le
Baum and his friends were struck as
if by a thunderbolt from heaven. He
first entreated, appealed and threat
ened his wife, and next the manigcr,
and finally declared his intention to
murder her upon the stage the mo
ment she made her appearance. All
to no purpose. The Manager duly
had all this passed into the streets,
which, of course, increased the sensa
tion and strengthened the desire to
attend. Every ticket was sold at
nine o'clock, and it is needless to say
that when night came the place of
amusement occupied the thoughts of
The curtain rose Dora appeared
walked, stammered, blushed and
repeated her part mechanically, like
any school girl reading her composi
tion atari examination. Still the au
dience was pleased, not by acting,
but by the novelty of the occasion.
The next, the third, the fourth, and
the fifth nights were like the first.
The morbid appetite of the public,
satiated with novelty, demanded good
acting. This, Dora could not sup
ply. The audience fell otT, the man
ager became restless, dissatisfied, and
refused to ofTer a re-engagement, but
intimated that she had best go to an
ether city. In the meantime, Le
Baum sued for a divorce, which was
readily granted by the court. The
next appearance of Dora was in New
Orleans, where her former social po
sition was unknown, and where she
was wholly thrown upon her merits
as an actress for success. It were
needless to say that she fulled to
elicit one single plaudit.
The rest of the story is soon told.
Charity would wish the curtain had
fallen sooner. Abandoned by home,
friends, husband, penniless, broken
hearted in her despair she fell
"Fell, like the snow-flakes. from hcav'n to hell;
Fell, to be trampled like filth in the street;
Fell, to be scoffed, and spit on and beat ;
Dreading to die.
Celling her sotl to whoever would bay,
Dealing in shame for a morsel of bread,
Hating the living, and tearing the dead."

Printing Offire Portraits
An editor's qualification are "vari
ous. It is to work harder, more
hours in the day, with lees recreation,
on less sleep and poorer pdy, than
any of your fellow mortals. It is to
be busy when your neighbors are
idle, busier wheti they sleep, and
busiest when they are enjoying a
good time. It la to be always in a
hurry, always under a press of busi
ness, always "setting up" when oth
ers are lying down, and always
charitably iC distributing" the result
of our daily labor. It is to have
your opinions always put to " proof
and seldom into practice. It is to
advertise other pecple's wants,
wishes, and wares; to announce fa
cilities for pleasure; to herald the ap
proach of diseases and the invention
of cures for them; to make known
who has been robbed, where, how
much, who is the robber, his person
al history, his trial, sentence, and its
execution. It is to receive nice fruit
and notice it, to be shown natural
curiosities and describe them, to be
everywhere at all times, and to be
able to answer all questions on all
subjects. It is to publish too much
sentiment for one, too much politics
for another, and too little news for
all. It is to make a dozen enemies
to one friend, and to be pitched into
by anybody who chooses to consider
himself aggrieved. It is to take com
plimentary tickets to everything and
pay for them in complimentary no
tices. It is to be bored by friends
uggesting how you should carry on
your business, aud bullied by those
whom you have hit in vulnerable
spots. It is a lite of mingled good
and ill, trial and triumph, never
ending toil and never-beginning felic
ity, wherein you work out your al
lotted time with the ' devil" always
at your elbow, calling for your sole
end in this life a little more copy.
Printers are unlike other classes
of men. Their vocation imparts to
them an intelligence that does not res
suit from any other business. Deal
ing with language exclusively, in its
combination of letters, words, sen
tences, and paragraphs, they are cons
.stantly brought into communion
with thoughts and their working, and
thus insensibly become imbued with
the ideas of those minds whose crea
tions they help to embody into those
forms that give them to the world.
They literally get grammar at their:
finger's ends while picking up the,
tvpes that form sentences that are
grammatical. Spelling comes to
them as natural as breathing, for
they fall into correct orthography
throurrh force of habit. The charac-
teristics of printers are not so favor
able to personal thrift as those of
other professions. They partake of
the nature of artists in some degree,
and are generally liberal to a fault,
thoughtless of the future and fre
quently improvident for the present
flush when in a good situation, and
dead broke on a tramp. They may
be said to be the working Bohemians
of the world of operatives.
From wild, friendless Jroys in the
streets, are made what are called
printers' devils next they become
printers after that sometimes editors,
in which capacity they not unfre-.
quenlly make their mark in the na
tion and in the world. Dr. Franklin
was a most eminent instance in the
early days of our country, and Thur
low Weed, Horace Greeley, Simon
Cameron, Hannibal Hamlin, Gener
al Dix, Schuyler Colfax, Gideon
Welles, and many others, are striking
examples at the present time.

well educated daughters of Christian
families, of families who think they
believe that man's chief end is to
glorify God and enjoy Him forever,
who profess to forsake the vanities
of this world, and consecreate them
selves to the Lord, who are yet
trained to think and talk of marriage
in a manner utterly frivolous. Al
lusions to and conversations on the
subject are of such a nature that they
cannot remain unmarried without
shame. They are taught not in di
rect terms at so much a lesson, like
music or German, but indirectly, and
with a thoroughness which no music
can equal, that if a woman is not
married it is because she is not at
tractive; that to be unattractive to
men is the most dismal and dreadful
misfortune; and that for an unmarried
woman earth has no honor and no
happineEs, but only toleration or un

Marriage is simply a reward of
merit. Do not be extravagant or
careless, or bold or rude, for so you
will scare away suitors. Be prudent
and tidy, and simple and gentle, and
timid, and you will be surrounded
by them, and that is the heaven of
