FRIDAY DECEMBER 1, 1876.
A STUMBLE IS 2T0T A FALL
Failed, yon tell me, for all your striving,
failed In spite of your utmost care,
Failed, with Indolent people striving
Why should It breed In the mind despair?
Although your vanity may be humbled,
Your energy back into Its place recall;
Your feet have tripped, you have merely
You'll learn that a stumble Is not a fall.
"Fate Is against you, and no use playing
When you discover the odds too great,"
That Is a vulgar gamester's saying;
Learn that persistency laughs at fate.
Perseverance, you see, has wondrous virtue
To win Its Intent in the face or all;
Some check to your purpose will not hurt you;
'TIS only a stumble and not a fall. .
She whom you love has been won by another
That is a 109s you may yet replace;
Let your resentment your sorrow smother
What Is the loss of a handsome fade ?
Such a mishap Is a trifle merely:
The wound In your heart for a while may
But you'll find another to love you dearly
That pitiful stumble Is not a fall.
Laughed at and mocked at your endeavor,
Writhing alone In your mental pain.
Droop not and faint not; but learn whoever
Clings to his purpose at last will gain.
Have trust In the future, and faith in the
Let hope not delude you, nor failure appal;
You may trip at times, which Is no ways
But that is a stumble and not a fall.
"Down In the world" do you think s
"Lost vour labor and tolled In vain !'
Nonsense, my friend; but a failure therefore
PiucS up your courage and try again.
A spark is left In the dying ember.
And vigorous breath may the flame recall.
Then to your task, and still remember
A stumble's a stumble and not a fall.
Keerj nn vour courace.and look before you:
Though It be rugged, and steep, and straight,
Winds howl alter ana clouas nang o'er you,
Valfc in the path with a steady gait.
Who perseveres, In the end wins surely,
Vho shrinks In terror can't win at all;
Go forth in confidence securely,
And be glad that a stumble is not a fall.
Miss Briggs' Straggles "With Skirts.
Kitty Briggs was a nice, intelligent
girl, notuing very brilliant, out about
up to tlie average of JJoston young
She had a stood many friends, of var
ious degrees of cultivation, in all classes
of society. Jiitty was not remarKauiy
quick of perception, and she didn't feel
or. rather, up to this last Centennial
summer, hadn't felt that vital iuterest
in the "movements" and agitations of
various topics connected with "woman"
which it is generally cousidered incum
bent on the Jiostou young lady to feel,
But a change was gradually coming
over Kitty; first, it was tier menus;
they asked her if she had seen the new
garments? and Kitty thought they
meant some new cloak or sacque from
Paris; then they asked her if she had
been to Mrs. F's opening? "No, she
never went to 'openings? " Then, the
friends explained thatit was a new kind
of underclothing, and new ways of keep
iug it on, that they meant, and said she
was behind the age, and took her oil to
one of the exhibitions.
Kitty acknowledged that the things
looked rattier cunning, but wondered
how they felt when on. All the friends,
who, by the way, were recent converts
to the new styles, cried out in chorus
that they were "splendid," as easy as
anything ! and the rich ones, who wore
lots of trimming, auueu, "ami so uecom
ing!" Then the poor ones retorted, "So
easy for the servants to do up make
less work," then all, in chorus, "l)o,
do, try 'em. I'll lend you my pattern!"
Then Kitty said she guessed she'd try.
Then it turned out that each friend bad
made some little "improvement," which
she assured Ivitty, was tne most essen
tial part of the whole costume. Kitty
smiled, beamed on them all, and said
she would look them over, and take her
She "looked them over." In fact, for
three weeksshe scarcely did anything
eise. xseingoi an accommouatiug turn
of mind, she wished to please every
body; but it was a little diuicult to aa
cept at least a dozen patterns, and
r to satisfy each inquiring friend, who
wanted to know, It, in K.itty'8 candid
opinion, her particular pattern was not
tbe best Y
She began with the all-in-one-piece
garment. That was no go at all; she
tried it again, by cutting it in two, aud
sewing on buttons; much worse, tbe
bntton-holes wouldn't stay made anv
time at all; she tried it again by sewing
up tne button-noles for good, putting in
a lew gatners, and sewing the pieces to
gether, a la the original pattern. It was
'a triumph 1 She assembled her friends,
and after a long afternoon of animated
talk, they all said, "to please her, they
would try theirs that way." So they
all went home, and ripped and sewed to
their heart's content.
Then Kitty fell in with some books
by recent authors, on "Dress," and the
"Hygiene of Dress." Oh, dear! how
stupid she had been all her life. Again
sue called "the girls" together for
kettledrum, and there arose a hubbub
that called Kitty's mother to the scene
of actiou; for each girl had a pet theory
Boston girls are nothing without the
ories aud she insisted that her ideas
were the best, and wauted every other
girl to agree with her! Kitty grew ex
cited over the "question." She dis
Cr.ssed whenever aud wherever she met
a friend. Was It a street corner? Just
come to tbe next shop, and see the last
new thing in skirt supporters ! "Ah !
now we have got the idea." Was it a
store? "Sit down a minute, while I tell
you Bessie Jones's ideas on corsets."
Time flew on; it was the end of thesum
mer, and still Kitty's underwear was
not settled to her liking, and ail her
friends were in the same state of mind.
"Have you found just what you want?"
was now their greeting to each other, at
church, lecture, reception, or party. It
was all one the scene might change,
but the subject never!
Kitty grew desperate. "You never
would believe all I've been through,"
she wrote to an older friend, who had,
sometime since, got "bera" settled to
her satisfaction. "I don't believe there's
a 'reformed underwear' place in Bos
ton that I haven't spent hours in, and I
can't get anything just right. As for
the buttons, I've sewed them on aud
ripped tbem off again; they are legion;
and 'when I think of the button-holes
I've made, it is positively awful ! As
for tbe patent skirt supporters, don't
mention o'ich a thing to me unless you
waut to malic me mad! I've tried every
kind, looked far and sear, sewed on
hooks, ripped 'em off, sewed on rings
wished I hadn't tried strings worse
than anything else. This week I've ta
ken off the last patent tMu;r, gone back
to pins, and I guess theiM are all of a
dozen about me not,jrou know, that I
mean to keep them, but I am just wait
ing; some of the girls will soon be in
with 'something new,' and I'll try it,
just for variety, and if it doesn't do,
there's an end of skirt supporters for
Kitty Briggs I"
A week after this, a quiet-looking
young lady walked in to 17 Temple
Place, and stepping up to the counter,
said in a tone of desperation to tbe at
tendant matron, "Madame ! have you
a pair of suspenders?" "Oh, plenty!
Like this, you mean?" She showed
Kitty a neat pair, ending with a sort of
guarded hook, strong and confident.
Kitty took them, gazed at them, and
remarked sollo-vocc, "Then yOU are my
long lost brother?"
"Ma'am?" said the startled attend
Oh, nothing," answered Kitty mild
ly, "I said that I see this is what I have
been looking for for a long time," With
that, she laid down fifty cents, and
marched oil with her suspenders, feel
ing that ber troubles were at last over.
That night she sent off a postal to her
mend. "IS ow, I've done It. IS o more
rows of buttons, button-holes, tapes,
pins, hooks, or any such trumpery for
me. 1 tirstciasp this little arrangement
through them all at one dive, dress
skirts, and the rest, and there I am.
'Hood-bye, dear, lou try 'em. and
then, for the rest of your life, you'll
bless your triumphant."
The central figure was a bare-headed
woman with a broom in her baud. She
stood on the back-step and was crying:
There was no response, but anybody
who had been on the other side of a
close board fence at the foot of the gar
den might have observed two boys in
tently engaged in building a mud pie.
"That's your mother hollering, lieor
gie," said one of the two, placing his
eye to a knot-hole aud glancing through
to the stoop.
"i dou't care," said the other.
"Ain't you going in ?"
"Georgie!" came another call, short
and sharp, "do yon hear me V"
There was no answer.
"Where is she now ?" inquired Geor
gie, putting in the filling of the pie.
On the stoop," replied the young
man at tbe Knot-hole.
"What's shedoln' ?"
"Ain't doin' nothin'."
"George Augustus !"
Still no answer.
"You needn't think you can hide from
me, young man, for I can see you, and
if you don't come in here at once, I'll
come out there in a way that you will
Now this was eminently a natural
statement, but hardly plausible, as her
eyes would have to pierce an inch board
lence to see Georgie; and even were this
possible, it would have required agiance
in that special direction, and not over
the top of a pear tree in an almost op
posite way. Even the boy at tbe knot
hole could hardly repress a smile.
"What's she dour now"" inquired
"She stands there yet."
"I won't speak to you again, George
Augustus," came the voice. "Your fa-
ther will be home m a few minutes, and
I shall tell him all about what you have
Still no answer.
"Ain't you afraid ?" asked the con
scientious young man, drawing his eye
Irom tbe Knot-hole to rest it.
"No! she won't tell pa; she never
does; she only sez so to scare me."
Thus enlightened and re-assured, the
guard covered the Knot-hole again.
"Ain't you coming in here, young
man " again demanded the woman,
"or do you want me to come out there
to you with a stick ? I won't sneak to
you again, sir i"
"is she comln' V" asked the baker.
"Which way is she lookin' ?"
"She's lookin' over in the other yard."
"Do you hear me, I say ?" came the
"Gec?.-ge Augustus ! do you hear your
motner taiKing to you V"
Still no answer.
"Oh, you just wait, young man, till
your father comes home, and he'll make
you hear, I'll warrant ye."
"She is gone now," announced the
faithful sentinel, withdrawing from his
"All right! take hold of this crust
and pull it down on that side, and that'!
be auother pie done," said the remorse-
stricken George Augustus.
Sunny Rooms and Sunny Lives.
Light is one of the most active agencies
in enlivening and beautifviner a home,
We all know the value of sunlight as a
health-giving agent to the physical con
stitution; aud it is not less so to our
spiritual natures. We are more ac
tive under its influence can think bet
ter and act more vigorously.
Let us take the airiest, choicest, and
suuniest room in the house for our living-roomthe
work-shop where brain
aud body are built up and renewed. And
let us there have a bay window, no mat
ter how plain in structure, throueli
which the good twin-angels of Nature
suungnt aud pure air can freely euter.
JLarK rooms bring depression of spir
its, imparting a seuse of coulinement
of isolation, of powerlessness, which is
chining to energy and vigor;, but in
light rooms is good cheer.
Even in a gloomy house, where walls
anu lurniture are dingy and brown, you
nave out to ttiKe uowu tue heavy cur
tains, open wide the window, haug
brackets on either side, set llower-pots
on the brackets, aud let the warm sun
stream rreely in, to bring health to ou
bodies and joy to our souls.
Before killing himself, George Rus
sell,- of San Fraucisco, wrote to his wife,
