Thi lioiry hills are streaked with white,
The fieliU are swept as bare,
Aul through tho liouhug bhstnt niht
ONI wint r cruM "Beware!"
Ho mocks us with his fiery stings,
He strike his hands together;
And, like a hiwk with flipping wings,
Djvvu swojps the sionny weather.
He binds the running water fast
la stony links of mail;
He strikes ns with the sounding blast,
His mighty harvest lliil.
Aw iy I aw ay ! the forests reel,
The ml lenes circle after,
Ueueath the grinding of his heel,
Beneath his sivage laughter.
He beats his clashing cymlnls hark !
To arms! away I away I
The forest bellows in tho dark
An 1 mutters in the day.
He drains tho earth to miet his mood;
He strikes hi hands together,
And, like a hawk upon a brood,
Down swoops the stormy weather.

Nothing to do ? 0, folde I hands
Why will yo lie so white an 1 f iir,
When tho busy world on etry side
Calls for thy labor, thy earnest care ?
Nothing to do ! there are tiroJ feet
Walking with thee life's weary road;
Show them the way in patn so sweet
That leads to Heaven, that leads to God.
Nothing to do but live in ease,
When thousauds fall on every side;
You might have helped to t ear the pain,
And breasted the swift an 1 rushing tide.
Nothing to do ! thy days are light,
With golden eves and sunny morns;
You gather fliwors fresh aud bright;
So ne are tortured with cruel thorns
Nothing to d 1 1 what will you say,
When the Lord of the harvests asks of you,
"What gleauest thou ui thy fields to day ! '
"Lord, there was nothing for me to do."

Sweet chimes 1 tint in tho loneliness of the
Siluto the passing hour, and in the dirk
And silent clumbers of the household mark
Tho movements of the mymd orbs of light 1
Through my closed eyelids, by the inner sight,
I see the constellations in tho arc
Of the great circles moving on, and hark 1
I almost hear them singing :n their flight.
Better than sleep it is to he awako
O'er canopied by the vast starry dome
Of tho immeasurable sky; to feel
Tho slumbering world sink under us and make
Hardly an eddy a m:re rush o( foam
On tho great sea beneath a sinki'ip keel.

The change that is about being made in
he conduct of tholnsuie Asylum, has brought
a question to my mind It is a fact that in
every Aylum for Insane, there are as many
women and men patients, and as this is tho
case; why should not there bo a women in 1 10
corps of physicians necessary to attend to tho
inmates of the asylum. It is well known also
to those who have been at all interested in
matters concerning the insane, that a large
percentage of the women in eery asylum
lose their mind by r ason of their sex; in
fact, "female diseases," aro so common now
as to create alarm for tho future generations.
Every women in her sine mind, will prefer a wo
man phjsichn; many revolt) at the idea of con
fiding to a man tho tioub'es that many hivo
and will suffer and die bif .ire putting herself
in a man's care. Then its not to be believed
that aentlemen phjsicuu, care to deal with
these sort of cases, and would not attend as
thoughtly to such cases as a women would.
Crazy w omen of ten retain this modesty, and
would perfer ministntions of a women.
There aie soveral ladie3 we could name, who
have well earned laurels, as successful practi
oners, the first name that omes to our mind,
is Dr. Ford-Wa-ren, whose consuliug rooms
are filled all day long, and w hose success in
treating disease of w omen is shown by tho
lucurativo business she has built up. bhe is
one who loves her profe-sin, and stands first
among Portland doctors. Dr. Ford-Warren,
would certainly not accept any such position,
and merely mention her name, in order to ad
vance tho fact that women can be and are
skillful as well as successful in medicine.
There are a number if other ladies who are
competent to fill reponsible positions. Mrs
Yeaknegan, Mrs. Danish and others. Dr.
Carpenter the newly appointed superintend,
ent at the asylum, told the writer of this:
that he would really liko to have a woman
connectel with the corps, and that there
would be one named, if he had the power to
do so. One of best evidence of modern civili
zation is that woman is taking her rightful
position in the world's work. We hope this
may encourage some woman to apply for her
share of work in the new asylum and its
honor. Jcsticl.
Have the conrage to face the difficulty, lest
it kick you harder than you bargained for.
Difficulties, like thieves, often disappear at a
glance. Ha e the courage to leav e a conv i
vial party at the proper hour for doing so,
however great the sacrifice; and to stay away
from one upon the slightest grounds for ob
jection, howevr great the temptation to go.
Have tho courage to do without that which
Sou do not need, however much you admire it.
ave the courage to speak your mind when it
is necessary that you should do so, and hold
vour tongue when it is better that you should
be silent. Have the courage to speak to a
poor friend in a seedy coat, even in tho street,
and when a rich one is nigh. The effort is
less than many p'tp'e think it to be, and the
act is wo'thy of a king Have tho courage O
adm t you have been in the wrong, and jou
will remove the fact in the minds of other,
puttm; a desirable impress in place of an un
favorable oni. Have the courage to adhere to
the first resolution 'vhen you can't change it
for a better, and to abandon it even at the
eleventh hour upon c nviction.
Waiimtii WniLh Riding Tho following
item will be worth knowing to some of our
readers : To keep warm when riding in the
cold, put a common kerosene lanteiu unilcr
the lap robe, and if the robe is well tucked
around, tho feet and limbs will be as warm as
when sitting by a stoe.
At certain seasons of the year it is pleasant
and profitable to know how to cook palatable
dishes without using egqs. Here is an excel
lent way of making rice pudding without
eegs : Wash a coffeccupful of lice in two or
three waters, then let it soak all night in one
nnnrt nf new milk. In the mormnirartd a lit
tle salt, a large spoonful of butter, a little
rrrimnd cinnamon and crated nutmeg. Put in
the pudding di-h and set in the o en, allow
ing ample time say two hours for it to
cook. Stir it frequently, but w lth. ut remov
ing it from the ov en. When it is beginning
t bubble add a quartet ot a pound ot stoned
raisins. Serve witn powuereu sugar spnumuu
over it when it is put in saucers.
"I had," said my neighbor, "some tough
beefsteak, it was useless to attempt to broil
it; I could not afford to throw it away, so I
cut it in small pieces and put it in a saucepan
with a lump of butter, a little water, aud
some pepper and salt. It simmered gently
for an hour; I then took n bowl of flour, some
baking powder and a little sweet milk, and
stirred up a stiff batter; this I dropped by
spoonfuls on a buttered tin and steamed for

Hoov many in thers know that they can
knit up as yvtll as down? When children
have reached the age w hen they w ear out
the knees of their stojkiugsand the bee's and
toes also, the ingenuity of woman must bo ex
ercised. In thu most hopelefs-looking stock
ing there is usually a strip at least an eighth
ota yard long, vvuicn is too guou to nuun
away, and j et is too much w arn to pay to
ravel out and knit ooer; from this, then, cut
off the ragged top and bostom, and knit up
as w ell as dow n. If you cannot match the
color, use another shade, or to a brown strip
knit a scarlet or grayish brow n top.
PiehLED Camiagl Thinking that not all
of our young housekeepers know how to pre
pare pickled cabbage to that it will keep
nicely until spring (proyided, of course, it is
not eaten Booner), I will tell them how : Cut
the cabbage very fine, and for a six gallon jar
take a pint cup nearly full of salt, tho same
amount of horseradish cut in small pieces, and
two heaping tablcspoonfuls of ovhite mustard
seed Sprinkle a little salt in the bottom of
the iar. then nut in a layer of cabbage, and
with a potato masher pound the cabbage down
firmly. Then sprinkle on some silt, horse
radish and mustard seed. Then putinanother
layer of cabbage and proceed as before. Be
sure to gio e ey ery lay er of cabbage a good
thorough pounding. When jour jar is full
put an inverted plate on the cabbage, and on
that put a 20-pound weight. Let it stand till
next morning, then drain off every drop of
the bnne that has formed (the amount of
bnne will surprise you), and pour over the
cabbage cider unegar boiling hot. Right here
let me say that it spoils omegar to heat it in
iron; use a porcelain kettle or a stone milk
crock. Leave the plate on the cabl age to
keep it from floating, for it must be kept un
der the vinegar. Tie seoeral thicknesses of
cloth over the top of the j'ar, then cover
closely and set away in a cool place. Some
place in a cellar that is just abooe the freez
ing point; it n the best place for it.

A damty way to prepare an egg for an in

season with a little pepper, salt, nnd a tiny
lump of butter; then pour it over a slice of dry
buttered toast, and set the plate containing it

The mothers o' nursing babies w id find it to
their adantago to provide thcmselocs ooith
two light flannels sacks, to be slipped on oyer
the nightdress on cold nights. Colds are taken
which are followed by more or less serious
consequences, by the slight exposure which
comes from attending to the needs of little
children at night. It is a good plan also to
haye a pair warm and loose elippe's at the
bedi lo. The slippers w Inch are crocheted of
toft B rlin wods, and o Inch haoe soles of
leather thickly w added oo lth lambs' w ool, are

A useful tabic scarf, andono that is particu
larly pleasing to the eye, because it does not
suggest almost endless labor, is made by tak

bo used. Line it with some stiff cloth, aud
then with silcsia. At about three inches from

a pint of sweet milk, threo tablespooufuls of
molasses, and tmes to suit your tiste. Mix
thoroughly, and boil three hours in a pudding
bag Another recipe for plum pudding is rich
er an 1 much m re expensive, but for certain
occasions, say ouee a year, is preferable. One
pound ot curiants, one pouud raisins, half a
pound of citron, one pound of sugyr, apiut
bowl of grated bieud crumbs, and a pint bowl
of Houi, two wine glasses of wine, one nutmeg
grated, a teaspoonlul each of cloves and of all

in a hag for four hours. Servo with cream

A Christmas gift of a pretty tablo is one
that would bo appreciated by almost any body,
and a yery ptetty and eyen elegant ono may
bo made at no great expense. Haye made at
a carpenter shop a stand with a squaro top,
and with four small, straight legs, coyer the
top and legs with royal blue velvet or y eh e
teen; around the stand put a sort of oaleucc or
lambrequin, from eight to ten inches deep,
and if skilled in tho needle work of tho day,
work at intervals of five or six inches, a rose
o bud, with slight stems and a few leaves, m
the lovely ribbon embroidery which makes so
liandsoni-i an adornment, and does not require
so much tune and material as many other
kinds of emb oidery. If J on ehooso to havo a
low shelf on the table, that may bo overed
with the oelvet but need not be decorated.
A sofa pillow to match this table is oery
effective. A squaro of the royal blue velvet,
w lth a bunch of roses and buds carelessly
laid oil, is all that is required, and tho cushion
is handsome if lined with satin, a id ue. da no
cords or other finish at the e li,u3.

To bow before the prettiest there;
I'm bound to say the choico ho made
A creditable taste displayed;
Althoug 1 can't say ov hat is meant
The little maid looked ill content.
His tusk was then anew b-gun
To kneel before the wittiest one.

To kiss tho ono ho loved the best.

Women Farmers.
Along the line of the Northern Pacific and
Manitoba railroads in Minnesota and Dakota
it has been the fashion for several years for
the daughter of farmers, and m some cases for
the young la lies of the towns and villages, to
take advantago of the beneficent law which
allows single women over twenty one years of
age the same opportunities men have to locate
gooerment land under tho pre-emption and
timber culture acts, and most of them havo
been successful. Others who have had money
haoe purchased farms from the railroad coir
pany and cult vated them. One of the finest
farms in Barnes county is owned and oper
ated by a woman, who derives from it an in
come of several thousand dollars each j ear.
She spends her w inters in the east, leaving her
farm meanwhile in the charge of a foreman,
and each spring gots to Dakota to superintend
the planting and harvesting herscf. A cor res
pondent of The lntr-0:ern, who has recently
returned from that country', found in Rrand
Forks county four young ladies from Phila
delphia, who have located a sect on of land
one hundred and sixty acres each, and are do
lighted with their present prosp Tity and fu

I have not written to tho Home Circle fur a
long tune, and from thtre being so few letters
in the latt Fakmik I am afraid that a good
many of your young friends have been lay us

to hear how we tried to entertain Uncle
Henry when ho made us a visit. We show oil
him the town. Among other things aunt aud
I took him over to the railroad company's
shops, There we saw machines that could cut
iron just as if it were wood. Then wo went
to the blacksmith Bhop, and there were little
fires all about, at which men were working
with red hot iron, and I was afraid a spark
w ould fly in my eye, ps I read a story about a
little boy getting his eye put out in that
way. The place we visited was the car shop.
There were lots of men in tho cars; some had
lights, and others had none, because they
were painting on the outside. These were in
tendeifor baggage cats. Uncle iluiry wanted
to know where thy got the water from, and
aunt told him it came from the water works.
1 her. we went into the boiler shop. '1 litre
we taw two men put one of the ends on the
boiler, I think the boiler was about tight
feet hih and s'x feet through, and twinty
five fi-ct long. The next we visited was the
saw shops; there were lots of men and lots of
noise, no much so that we could not hear any
one talk. O e of the things I saw was a
wheel, and it looked like a ring of sparks
around it. Uncle "id it way an emery wheel

the opportunity which dear Aunt Hetty has
given us of teaching us how to compose and

welfare of her cluldien should feel ever grato
ful to her kind teaching. Iiio holdidaVB are
