6 The Household. SHE HATH DONE WHAT SHE COULD. BY M E. K. In many an honr. with many a winged prayer, Os lire’s brief, busy days, I lift mv heart with anxious, wandering care, "Shalll win the Master’spraliet I dare not hope that he will say •’ well done; ” I know that cannot be, I case aghast on murdered years all gone, And cry, “ Oh, woe to me I” But still, I know life’s early morn I gave To God, with faith all true; And. oh ! e’en I did proudly crave Some noble work to do. That work he gave, and, Martha like, was I Intent on my own way 7 Thon tempteat not, vet other power* defy And oft our fond hop< s slay. Will he excuse omissions that do blot The record of my time? I know his Justice ne’er can tie forgot. But mercy lives sublime! Oh, will he say, "She hath done what she eould ? ” Oh. comfort me. his saints; Soul, higher look to Him who understood, He hears all thy complaints. What if he should commend me in this praise 1 I’d sink into a sea of bliss. Or rise exhaled in heaven’s own air of praise To a higher sphere than this. Thus we disciples our experience tell < In some sueh strains as this; To look within, In sooth, it must be well, But friends, let us not miss The golden mean 'twixt contemplative mooda And some unguided seal. Faith, working faith, in all thine altitudes Teach thou us how to feel So much for Marys that in heathen lands Misplace affections rare. And live devoted, neath inhuman bands And wrongs beyond compare; So much of Marahs that in heathen lands Do quench some loving souls Who would be Mary’s if. with busy hands We gather up the doles. We quaff the crystal waters from the founts Os free salvation’s wells ; Our faith, by work, o’er ocean barriers mounts And this same story tells, Os Mary—grateful Mary’s loving tears, And of her jeweled hair, Her jeweled crown she’s worn for years on years, And shall forever wear. That perfume rare still lives, an emblem true Os love pervading all, The nations sprinkling o’er like Hermons dew, Love rescues from the fall. Wil HOUT WORDS. Two little Italian children f.ccojnpani ed a man with a harp, out of the city, along the country roads, skirted by fields and woods, and here and there a farm house by the way. He played and they sang at every door. Their voices were sweet, and the words in an unknown tongue. The old ladies came out to the door, and held their hands above their eyes to see what it all meant; and from behind them peered the flaxen heads of timid children. Here they were given an apple, there a generous slice of bread and butter, and sometimes a cup of milk, or a handful of plums. There was something beside this they were obliged to get and take out to the swat thy man by the roadside, or else he frowned and scolded them — that was money. Not knowing how to make themselves understood, the little children when they had finished singing, slyly held out their little brown hands or their aprons to get anything that might be given them, and take it to the dark man out at the gate, who stood ready to receive it. One day the dark harper went to sleep, and the little boy and girl becoming tired of waiting for him, went off to a cottage under the hill, and beg’an to sing under the window. They sang as sweetly as the voices of birds. Presently the blinds were opened wide, and they saw by the window a fair lady on a sick-bed regarding them. Her eyes shone with a feverish light, and the color of her cheeks was like a beauti ful peach in the sun. She smiled as an angel might, and asked them if their feet were tired. They said a few words softly in their own tongue. She said, “ Are the green fields not bet ter than your city ? ” They snook their heads. She asked them, “ Have you a moth er?” . they looked perplexed. She said, “ What do you think while you walk along the country roads?” They thought she asked for another song, so eager was the face; and they sang at once a song full of sweetness and pity ; so sweet the tears came into her eyes. That was a language they had learned. So they sang <ne sweeter still. At this she kissed her hand and waved it to them. Their beautiful faces kindled, and, like a tlash, the timid hands waved back a kiss. She pointed upward to the sky, and sent a kiss up thither. At this they sank upon their knees, and also pointed thither, as much ns ask ing, “ Do you also know the good God ? ” A lady leaning by the window said, “ So tears and kisses belt the earth, and make the whole w’Oi Id kin.” And the sick one added, “ And God is over all. ” —By Emma Burt, in 8. 8. Times. Rbmovai. of Spots and Stains.— Ben zine is undoul tedly by far the best and cheapest substance for removing grease, resin, stearine, naratline, tar, wagon grease, etc., the purest kind to be applied to the most delicate fabrics. Such spots are very often complicated by the adhe sion of dust or other matters, which, even if insoluble in themselves, readily fall off when the substance w th which they are combined is removed. For spots of oil it is best to add a litt>e alcoholic ether. Silver spots and indelible ink can be removed, even after a long time, by means of cyanide of potassium or iodide of potassium applied in a concentrated so lution. Rust spots can be made to disap pear by treatment with a weak solution composed of one part nitric acid and twentv-five of water, and afterwards rins ing with water and ammonia; copper spots by diluted sulphuric acid and am monia, and subsequently with water and ammonia. Spots of paint, when not sol uble tn water and alcohol, can almost always be removed by oil of turpentine. For complete removal it is necessary to wash the spot afterward in a good deal oof turpentine. Fruit, wine, and similar apots are to be treated by sulphuric acid, but not always, by chlorine. The acid may be applied in the form of gas or dissolved in water; in the first case the substance to be treated is to be stretched at the proper height over burning sul phur, and in the latter moistened with the solution and then washed with pure water. For fine white table cloths the diluted acid is preferable. THE CHRISTIAN INDEX AND SOUTH-WESTERN BAPTIST: THURSDAY, JULY 28, 1881 RAG CARPETS. My new one—new two years ego—is almost worn out now. And yet, though this one has not done very good service I think more of rag carpets than I used to. It is not because they are especially fashionable, for I have seen only one rag carpet besides mine since I put it upon the floor. That other one, in the sitting room of a near neighbor, has since given place to a cotton carpet of gay colors and pattern, costing half a dollar a yard. When I “run in” to see my neighbor’s, I usually sit with my feet upon an In grain or a Brussels carpet. It is very pleasant,and I admire the neat carpet and the flowering plants, and all the dainty trifles on shelves and brackets. But when I go home and find my “hit-or-miss” rag carpet strewn with the little girls' dolly work, and the little boys’ and the baby’s crumbs and playthings, I am glad it is only a rag carpet, and that I am not obliged to worry about the in jury which would daily happen to a nice carpet w here five children spend a good part of their waking hours. Besides, I think it is more “Eaitlakey” than the very gay carpets of some of my neighbors! Anyhow, it harmonizes better with my very plain sitting room furniture than food Ingrain or Brussels carpeting would. like nice things, and if ever Fortune gives them to me, I shall be thankful I hope, as I am now for babies and for the companionship of childhood, and for the exj erience of a mother. I believe I will make one more rag carpet at least. 1 think it will be “hit-or-miss,” instead of striped, and I think I will put it down as I did this,without sewing the breadths but simply lapping them, one a few in ches over the next, stretching each one well, and tacking them very little except at the ends. It is easy then to take up and shake or beat the carpet and put it down again, so that the worn places may be less exposed. It is easy to wash out the most soiled portions. 1 will have a stronger warp next time, and think I will have it in two colors, so that there will be stripes running lengthwise of the breadths. 1 will be particular in catting and tearing the rags to have them so that they will be even sized threads in the filling, for I have never liked to see the places in this old carpet where thick woolen rags have sometimes joined on to finer cotton strings, making the tex ture of the carpet uneven, and causing it to wear out more easily. The little girls must sew them neatly, so as not to give a bunchy look when woven. I think I will have the rags divided into three kinds for sewing—a basket of dark rags, one of light, and one of gay colors. The first may include the black and dark browns and grays. The second will con tain the light nondescript grays, browns and old calico stuff; the third anything at all bright. The one who sews can go round and round with these three lots, and so make a tolerably even “hit or miss.” lam not swe that this will pay, but I am sure that I know of no carpet ing for 50 cents a yard that will do so good service as a good rag carpet made as above. — American Handy Hints. Cotton wool wet with sweet oil and lauda num relieves the ear-ache very soon. To obtain a glossy skin : Pour upon a pint of bran sufficient boiling water to cover it. Let it stand until cold and then bathe the face with it, only patting the skin with a soft towel to dry it. You can get a bottle or a barrel of oil off of any carpet or woolen stuff by applying dry buckwheat plentifully and faithfully. Never put water or liquid of any kind to such a grease spot. To take iron stains out of marble: An equal quantity of fresh spirit of vitriol and lemon juice being mixed in a bottle, shake well, wet the spots and in a few minutes rub with soft linen till they disappear. If your tongue is coaled and you are suf fering from biliousness, liver troubles, or any difficulty of the kidneys, bladder, or urinary organs, take Warner’s Safe Kidney and Liver Cure without delay. All troubles of the kidneys or liver, however slight, are danger ous, but this remedy is a certain protection against them all. Questicn.— How can we free curdomes tic animals from fleas ? AwMier.—Keep thtm well washed with caiboliceosp and scatter “Insect” or “ Persian powder ’’overthe animelsand round on the carpets or mats where they are most likely to lie down when in the house. A small rubber belle ws usually comes with all insect powder and is an excellent thing to send the powder through the hair or into the meshes of the carpet. The powder is perfectly harmless, but fleas, bugs and mosquitoes do not fancy it. It is largely used in all bird stores to keep the birds and cages free from insects, and is very eflective. Warts.—ls they give you no special inconvenience, let them alone. But if it is of essential importance to get rid of them, purchase an ounce muriatic acid, put it in a broad bottom vial, so that it will not easily turn over; take a stick as large as a knitting-needle, dip it into the acid, and touch the top of the wart with whatever adheres to the stick; then, with the end of the stick, rub the acid into the top of the wart, without allowing the acid to touch the well skin. Do this night and morning, a safe, painless, and effectual cure is the result. “Mother has recovered,” wrote an Illinois girl to her Eastern relatives. “She took bit ters for a long time but without any good. So when she heard of the virtues of Kidney- Wort she got a box, and it has completely cured her, so that she can do as much work now as she could before we moved West. Since she has got well everyone about here is taking it.” See adv. Hydrophobia.— A Canada correspon dent writes io the Chicago Tribune: “ Take oyster shells, and burn then.' to the consistency that they may be readily pulverized in a mortar. Mix the powder thus obtained with white of eggs, and make into cakes. Fry them in lard. The patient to eat them ad libitum, fast ing six hours, for three alternate davs. ” Another correspondent says: “take white beans and boil them down to a poultice, water and all, full strength, and apply. It will draw out the poison and cure the worst case of mad-dog bites. ” Druggists say that Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound is the best remdy for female weakness that they ever heard of, for it gives universal satisfaction. Send to Mrs. Lydia E. Pinkham, 233 Western Avenue, Lynn, Mass., for pamphlets. Wash-day is a holiday, thanks to Dobbins’ Electric Soap, (made by Cragin & Co., Phila delphia), which is rapidly coming into gen eral use. It acts like magic, and bleaches clothing without injuring the fabric. Try it. Mrs. Caroline M. Cutts. Died of consumption In Americus, Ga.. fif teen minutes past six in the evening of June 24th, Mrs. Caroline M. Cutts, wife oi Claude 8. Cutts, and daughter of the late David W. Mor gan, ol LaGrange, Ga. The familiar adage, “Those whom God loves die early, ” finds an apt illustration in the death ot this lovely and pious young woman. Her sun went down belore its noon, leaving many hearts in deep darkness and sorrow. Hers was one of the purest and most per fect of human characters. Highly cultured in heart, mind, and manners she was the charm of every circle in which she moved, and shed a happy and beuefleient Influence everywhere around her. By a magnetism peculiarly her own, she drew to liersell the hearts oi all with whom she came in contact. She seemed born to create love and happiness, and people of every age and rank yielded the homage exacted, not by an imperious spirit, but by a warm and loving heart. Never, perhaps, did the double injunction of love to God and man meet a heartier response than In her breast. Hence duty to her was not a stern and rigorous task-master, but an object oi reverent loyalty. In every sphere—home, society, the Sunday-school, the church—she served, with a Joyful spirit, her generation and her God. blie was the solace and stay ol a tender mother, the idol of a loud husband, the pride oi a loving sister and devoted broth ers. the light ot a bright circle of friends, and an ornament to the church. Her rich and cultivated voice, “Sweeter than all Instruments,’’ was never so sweet as when hymning the praise of her Redeemer. Her death created a sad vacuum in the choir In the Americus Baptist church, and when her voice was hushed a flood of richest melody passed away Irom earth. Her end was the fitting crown ol so pure and beautilula life. Al nearly the hour when the eye of day was shut, and as gently, did her eyes close upon the scenes of earth. After months of weary languishing, rest came to her—s rest gladly welcomed—the rest ol heaven. “ Almost to the pearly gates, mamma,” she said on the day beiore her death to the fond and loving mother, who had kept so long, a watch by her bedside. Then with a tendei message to each member of the family to meet her in heaven, she bade the sad watch ers farewell. But she was not to pass away then. On the next day, she remarked that she thought she was in heaven, “she was so happy.” Often during that day would she turn her eyes to the clock and ask the time, 11 it was not twelve o’clock—as she thought that this was the hour lor her spirit to take its flight. Twoorthree tlmissbesald, “1 am so tired waiting, 1 am so anxious to go to heaven!” Her remains were taken to the church where she had so often chanted hei Redeemer’s praise, then borne to their last resting place In Oak Grove cemetery by the side ol her Inlant who had preceded her but three weeks. A pall of gloom settled over the church and community when her death became known; but upon no heart was a deeper shadow cast than that of the young husband who guard ed her frail life so tenderly, and watched with such ceaseless devotion at her bedside May God ccmlort him and the sadly bereaved mother, sister and brotheis, is the prayer of the writer wl o loved her with a father's ten derness.
