this life without duty. A senso of du
ty always pursues us; it is omnipres
cut, like the doity.

promise una ureak it, nor Bay ono

Iruly, "a soft answer turneth away
wrath." Girls aro not called upon to
do great things, except in raro install
ces, but the everyday trials of life in
tno ordinary and appointed exercise
of the Christian graces afford amnio
scope for tho practico of that virtuo
of mankind which has becomo prover
bial. The best exercises of patienco
and self-denial, and tho better becauso
not chosen by ourselves, aro those m
which wo have to bear with tho fail
ings of those about us: to enduro nec-
lect when wo feel that we deserved at
tention, and ingratitude when wo OX'
pected thanksjto bear with disappoint
ments in our expectations, with in
terruptions in our retirement, with
folly, intrusion, disturbance in short
whatever opposes our will, contra
dicts our humor.
Earnestness males next to holdinc
a lush placo m a cirl's character, for
do not earnestness and simplicty car
ry ail before them? Charles Dickens
tells us that there is no substituto for
ttiorough-going, ardent, and sincero
earnestness. Let us bear this in mind,
xnd whatever we have to accomplish,
let us bo earnest. Hand in hand with
earnestness goes tho Roman virtuo
perserverance, which lias perhapB
ueen tho radical principle ol every
truly great character, rerseverance.
woi-King m tho right direction, grows
with time, and when stoailily pnictiC'
ed, oven by tho inost humble, will
rarely fail of its reward. Trustiiitr in
the help of others is of comparatively
little use. The urandest inventions
have been completed by tho diligent
pursuit ol perseverance. Tho eroat
success of this virtuo is seen in tho
proverb "A falling drop at last will
cave a stone."
Wo aro told by a great author that
ho considers a beautiful form better
than a beautiful faco, and a beautiful
behavior better than a beautiful form
To have truo beauty a girl must have-
a tender regard for the old andvoiuiK,
for the poor and sullering; must bo
sensiblo and ptiro in her thonghts,
chasto 111 her conversation, sympa
thetic to those in adversity, and havo
an altaulo and even disposition; and,
above all, humbleness 01 soul.
The truo cirl is not complete with
out tho blessing ot tho gift of industry.
Girls instilled with habits of industry
aro moro sately provided for than if
they had a fortune given them, for
there is no art or science too dillicult
for industry to attain.
"toloth maketh al thincs d flicult.
but industry all things easy." Indus
try qualifies us in all our various
classes for tho highest and lowest em
ployments; it inspires us with fresh
vigor 111 tho porformanco of social
aim reiimons auties and it oives a
wider scopo for tho disnlav of our
talents. Tho habit of constant useful
occupation is as essential for tho Imp.
piness and well-being of woman as of
man. Tho happiness of the body lies
in health, that of tho mind in knowl
edge. Without occupation women
aro apt to sink into a stato of listless
ennui and usolessness, accompanied by
sick headache and atacks of "nerves.
Lvery pirl ought to bo a cood
needlewoman, and tho foundation for
this has to bo laid in school in tho
girl of seven years. It, we followed in
tho steps of the uermans m this re
spect, teaching children all kinds of
work, it would no doubt prove- moro
beneficial to domestic happiness. Tho
education of women has mado great
strides in tho last few years, and tho
question of higher education still
holds tho prominent place it deserves.
Aro wo content to be as wo are? No;
let us put forth our strength in doing
our utmost to olovate our stand
ard of perfection and strivo, one
and all of us, to becomo "truo

Poets give so few records of truo
and nice girls; sweet Anno Page was
one. So was the heroine of "Suck
ling's Rallad upon a Wedding." That
must havo been a true girl indeed of
whom it was said by the poet that to
know her was a liberal education tho
sweetest compliment evei paid to
Joseph do Maistre, speaking of wom
en, said: "It is quite true that wom
en havo produced no chefs-d'-iuuvre,
but," he said, "they havo dono some
thing fur creator and better than all
this, for it is at their knees that up
right and virtuous men anil women
have been trained the most excellent
productions in tho world."
Women accomplish their host work
in the quiet seclusion of the homo and
family by sustained elTortand patient
persoverancoin the path of duty. Tho
influence they exercise, oven though it
bo unrecorded, lives after them, and
in its consequences forever.
A writer in the Cincinnati Commer
cial Ga.etto tells of this adventure in
Scotland: "After a nice luncheon at
tho Abbey Gato Hotel, Melrose, my
friend and I, having returned from the
ruins, stood talking near the hotel
door when two young fellows, well
dressed and well enough looking, camo
up and accosted us. Thoy asked if
we were Americans. Yes, wo were,
They thought so had seed our names
on the hotel register.
Were we going to Abbottsford?
Wo had just been speaking of
Yes, wo wero going.
" ell, wo aro Americans also,"
plied the taller of tho two young
lows, "and, as tho little carriages over
there," pointing to them, "carry four
we thought we'd propose Jim
and mo to ask if vou and your
friend," addressing 1110 as tho elder,
"will mind taking two of tho seats,
and, you see, J 1111 and me won t we,
Jimmio? will take tho other two.
It'll savo tho odd chango for both
parties, you see."
Alter going over and looking at tho
vehicle, drawn by 0110 big strapping
horse, which had evidently been at
Abbottsford beforo, becauso his canny
bcot of a driver told us all about it,
wo agreed to mako tho trip with tho
tall young man and his companion,
Thoy surprised us very much by
asking mo just as wo settled ourselves
into the scats, "who this Air. Scott
was who used to live at this placo thoy

so taken aback that I looked tho tall
young fellow full in tho oyes, thinking
he was trying to play tho quiz ganio
on me. iSot a bit of it. lio was just
as honest as that bcotch horso trot'
ting along in front of us. It seemed
that ho was aware that tho former
owner of world famous Abbottsford
had been a man eminent for something,
but ho had not tho remotest idea
what it was. I felt provoked to see
tho staid young bcotchman turn
around and grin at mo as my friend
and I faced tho front. So I told the
American tourist all that Sir Walter
had done, and then ho wanted to
know it no could got ins poems or
"story" books in Edinburgh, so as to
tako them back homo with him to Illi
nois. Actual fact, I assure you. Ho
was assured that tho works of Scott
could bo bought at any book-storo in
tho united btates or, "the btates,
as people say over there hut ho seem
ed to havo dark doubts as to tho
genuineness of tho aiticlo if not
purchased in Scotland in tho original
package. It appeared by furthor talk,
that ho and his chum Jim had been
sent over by the old folks to buy
stock, and wero on their way
to Franco to look at somo
Norman stallions, to bo bargained
for and shipped to Illinois. How
thoy camo to get into tho land of Scots
havo forgotten. Wo had noticed
them at tho abbey ruins, going up to

mo that ho always made it a point to
buy tho guide book at all places they
visited, buc ho nover read them on tho
spot. What did ho do with them?
Oh. bless vou! he packed them all care
fully away in his valiso, and when ho
returned to his native villngo he was
to get them out and thou and thero
read them all over at his leisure.
What a truly romarkabloyoting man
that remarkablo young man from
Illinois was. And, oh! tho questions
that ho asked of tho guido who took
us through tho halls and rooms of
Abbottsford. If thoso two fellows
traveled all about Scotland and Eng-
and, and tho peoplo who camo in con
tract with thorn nover had chanced to
meet any othor Americans, just fancy
what an opinion thoy must have form
cd of us. Aud to think that thero are
bo many of our couutrynion, well edu

Harrison, Geneial Grant's old body
servant, tells mo that Colonel l-V.-d
Grant is in buisness in New York, and
mac tiie lamiiy are living there. 'esso
Grant is in San Prancisco.and I'lyssos
is attending to tho interests of his
wife's estate in Mexico. I asked him
how Grant felt when he gave his relics
over to tho ttovernnient. lio replied
that the iicnerai was very well pleas
ed that tho Government could get
them. General Grant said that ho
felt that they ought to bo kopt to
gether, and if they were divided
among his family thoy would bo
scattered. "There was danger at the
time, said Harrison, "that the cred
itors of Grant it Ward might tako
thoni, and I remember well when I
had finished packing them, nnd told
hun that thoy wero ready for shipping,
how niuchrelievoa ho looked, and how
lio said, 'lam very glad of it.
"Hut tho taking away of thoso
relics," said Harrison, "mado littlo
dilYerence in tho looks of Grant's
house. Tho rooms were only bare for
a day or two. Alter that thoy were
filled with things fully as curious, and
some almost as valuable. I don't
suppose nnv man over received so
many presents as General Grant. Ho
did hot know what ho had. Thore
wero boxes upon boxes of rare and
curious thitms stored away which had
been shipped from Europe during his
lour, and somo ol which had nover
been unpacked. A great many things
had been put away because ho had
not room for them, and these had
been forgotten. They wero brought
out alter the relics wero sent to ash
ington, and I thought the houso look
ed better than ever.
"When did Grant first realizo tho
fact of his approaching death?"
"it was at I Jr. Douglas olhco m
New York. Ho was alono with Dr.
Douglas and myself. Grant had just
had an examination of his throat,
and ho asked Dr. Douglas if he could
assure him that his troublo would not
dovelop into a cancer. Douglas told
him that ho could not assuro him ot
this fact, but that ho hoped ho might
bo able to euro him. General Grant
then said: 'If you think thus, Dr.
Douglas, thero is hope for me. Soon

was not two hours absent from
him. Many nights ho would walk tho
lloor all night. When tho family
would ask him in tho morning how ho
had rested ho would say, 'Pretty well,'
and would try to appear cheerful. Ho
had tho most terriblo pain all tho
time, and I don't think he had a mo
ment's cessationfrom pain duringthoso
last months. 1 lo felt greatly relieved
when ho had finished his book, and
his happiest days wero thoso just be
fore his death. During his whole sick
ness ho never grew irritablo or lost
his temper. Ho was tho kindest man

Ho always called her Mrs. Grant, and

Drug Clerk's Awful Af;ony.
From tho Chicago Herald.
"I had a strange experience tho
other night," said tho clerk in a Ran
dolph stieet drug storo recently. "I
was sitting beside tho stovo in a sort
of dozo whon tho night-boll jingled
violently. Tho instant I opened tho
door a boy not yot in his teens stum
bled into tho Btore with a peremp
tion in his hand. It had bien written
by a prominent physician living on
Washington boulevard. Moro aslcop
than awake, 1 set about preparing the
medicine a task which consumed
fully half an hour. After tho boy had
departed I returned to my seat and
was just falling into a deep sleep when
tho thought that I had made a mis
take in tho preparation of tho medi
cine flashed through my mind. I leap.
ed to my feet as scared a man as over
lived. Seizing the perscription, I read
it over and ovor again, each timo be
coming moroconvinced that Ihadmado

yetmy thoughts and tho moist plug in
thobottlo told mo that tho poison was

storo in search of the boy, whoso iinmo
1 did not know, but ho was nowhoro
to bo seon. Returning to tho storo I
paced tho floor like a madman.

on tho foungo 111 despair when the

On tho 22d of November, 1809, tho
Due do Cadoro, then minister for
foroign affairs at Paris, wrote to the
Duo do Viconco, French ambassador at
St. Petersburg, to ask whether Napo
leon's proposal for tho hand of tho
Emperor Alexander's sister, tho
Grand Duchess Anno, would bo favor
ably received. An immediate answer
was required. At that dato mes
sengers took a fortnight to reach St.
Petersburg from Paris; tho answor to
thoUispatchof tho22d had not, conse
quently, arrived whon, on tho UOth ol
Novoinbor Napoleon's divorce was
finally sottled. On tholUth of Decem
ber Joshepino hold her last reception
at tho Tuilerios, which she was about
to quit f orovor. Whilo wa iting for thoir
carriages a remarkable conversation
took placo botween M. do Semonvillo,
who was thou high in favor at court.
and M. do Floiot, ono of tho secreta
ries of tho Austrian embassy.in which
it transpired that tho hand of the
ArchducliesB Mario Louise would not
bo refused Bhould Napoleon ask for
it. This news was at onco communi
cated to tho omperor, and as tho an
swor from St. Petersburg was delayed,
negotiations wero broken off, and on
tho 7th of February, 1810, Princo
Schwarzenberg signed the contract of
marriage with tho Archduchess Mario
Louiso at tho Tuilencs, and a messen
ger was at once dispatched to Vionnn.
iuano twouiso consented with resigna
tion rather than ploasuro, and when
Count Mottemich, thon minister for
forign affairs, camo to osk hor con
sent, her first question was: "What
doo.'imy father desiro?" "Tho emper
or," ansivorodMettornich, "has order
ed 1110 to ask your imperial highness
opinion with regard to an event upon
which tho futuro of his very oxistenco
depends; but do not nquiro what the
emperor wishes; tell mo frankly what
you wish yourself." "I only wish
what my duty commands, answerod
Mario Louise. "When it is a question
rogarding tho wolfaro of tho ompiro,
you must consult that and not my
will. Beg my father to oboy his duty
as a sovereign, without consideration
for my personal feelings." Whon this
nnuwor was brought to the emperor
ho showed no supriso. but saidi "My
consent to this marriago will at least
spcuro a few years of pcoco and pros

which I must employ in endeavoring
to heal its wounds, I owe myselt
