For Woman’s- Work.
I cannot recall the angry word,
That from my lips like an arrow sped,
And wounded a heart so full of trust,
And left that heart-trust cold, and dead.
I cannot unsay the flippant jest,
That cruelly pierced a sensitive heart,
And left us estranged who had been friends,
By a heedless jest driven far apart.
I cannot undo the treacherous deed,
A deed I had hoped would bring me gain.
BuLI view the wreck by my treachery wrought,
And I’d fain undo it, but in vain.
I cannot remove the blight from the heart
That drooped ’neath my passion’s withering
But I bitterly gaze on its desolate woe,
With pangs, that my rashness left one forlorn
I cannotgo back by the way I came,
To right those I’ve wronged and soothe the
But mine are the dregs of each cup I’ve filled,
And I needs must quaff them, oft and again.
For Woman’s Work.
BY MRS. S. C. HAZLETT.
“ Open the door for the children,
Tenderly gather them in.”
There is not a true mother in the world
who would willingly wound her little ones,
but life is so full of stern realities, and
many mothers have so much care upon
their weak shoulders—some the entire sup
port of the family, that they are apt to
overlook things, which, under more pleas
ant circumstances, would be very apparent
and receive the needful attention, and yet
it is not always the poor or overtasked
mother, who sometimes neglects the sen
sitive child, for the so-called duties of so
ciety claim entirely too much time of the
wealthy, and ofttimes indolent mothers, to
the detriment of her family, especially the
little sensitive child. Children have the
same feelings as their elders, only they are
Contact with the world but hardens, and
in many instances embitters one, but the
sensitive, trusting child, who believes
everything that is told him, because he
himself is true, and takes everything for
granted, is one of the keenest sufferers, im
aginable, and because of his capability of
suffering, he is naturally more apprecia
tive, and enjoys likewise.
There is a great difference in children,
and one is less sensitive than another.
A diffident child, one who is apt to shrink
from strangers, to be the last to offer or
accept a favor, to love solitude, one who is
quiet and distant, is generally the most
sensitive of children. Such a child should
be encouraged, praised, brought out, and
not put aside, for one apparently brighter,
or more intelligent. If any preference is
ever given to a child, it should be to the
A thoughtful child, often appears sulky.
A close study of children, will prove the
I made the acquaintance of a little girl
once, who was universally termed stupid,
and dull, who upon giving her my confi
dence, and winning her love, I gradually
drew out, until I felt an awe steal over me,
at her utterances of thought, and rare ex
pression of language, showing that what
others deemed dullness, and stupidity, was
depth and concentration ; she was awake,
and cultivating, while they were sleeping
The indurating process is a terrible one,
and pitiful indeed, is the child who has
ceased to care whether he is loted or not,
and who accepts the husks that are thrown
him, with a pathetic indifference, as a
matter of course.
It will come to this after a time—though
there will still be supreme hours with him,
when he would gladly remember the touch
of a loving hand, that somehow in life s
worry had passed him by; and to hear
through the chiming of memory’s bells, the
echoes of a sweet voice full of a tenderness
understood only by him.
God pity the lonely child, starving
amidst plenty; who is longing and waiting
for a loving look, a word of praise or en
couragement, and is continually denied it
from sheer thoughtlessness.
In the hurry and worry of life, parents
and children drift so far apart that the
chasm yawns unto the bitter end.
In many instances there is misunder
standing upon both sides; the parent is
equally sensitive, and as utter strangers
would, one waits for the other. “ You did
not kiss liie good-night,” said a little girl
with grieved eyes, and a sad droop of the
under lip, when her mamma, noticing it,
asked her “ What is the matter?”
“Why dear, I was waiting for you,”
said the loving mother, w'ho was feeling
the supposed neglect as well, and quickly
clasped her child to her bosom. A little
thing, but an illustration of greater things.
There should be no waiting. Life is too
short. We are all too thoughtless and
careless of one another’s feelings.
Get acquainted with your children.
Draw near to them and they to you. The
pattering of tiny feet will not echo long
in the halls of the old home, and the
thorns are thickly strewn along life's path
way for them, as they were for us, who are
older-grown, and let the memories of home
be those not dimmed with tears.
TWO SECRETS OF HAPPINESS.
There are people who seem constitution
ally happy and whose mere presence dif
fuses joy. There are others against whom
nothing can be said, except that they ap
pear to be destitute of the power either to
enjoy or create enjoyment. There are
many causes of this diversity, but the most
common one, we believe, to be this: The
joyous and joy-giving person was happy
in his childhood, while the individual whose
spirits never rise to overflowing, had a
childhood of gloom, constraint and contra
diction. The happy man was received into
the world with a welcome. His coming was
to his parents a delight and pride. The
tenderest love hovered round his cradle
and nurtured his expanding'heart. He
was always loving and always beloved.
Not cruelly indulged in every boyish
caprice, but gently and wisely trained to
_dp his duty, and supplied with rational
means of enjoyment. It is hardly possible
to overstate the blessings of a happy
childhood. It is worth while to
make any propel sacrifice in order
to store the memory of children with happy
days. The merry Christmas, the family
picnic, the excursion, the children’s party,
the occasional gift, are delights that do not
cease when the little tired head sinks on
the pillow at night; they live again in the
character of the joy-inspiring man; they
shine in the pleasant countenance of the
merry old grandfather. So much for pa
rental duties in regard to this important
On the other hand, no young person
should consider it an advantage to get rid
of parental supervision and care. There is
no other institution like the happy family;
there is no other friendship like the friend
ship of father and of mother. There are
no persons who will tell you the truth so
faithfully; there are no persons that know
your faults so well; there are none so dis
interestedly considerate for your well-be
ing, as your father and your loving, patient
■ “ The world is all too sad for tears;
I would not weep, not I,
But smile along my life’s short road,
Until I, smiling, die.
“ The little flowers breathe sweetness out
Through all the dewy night;
Shall I more churlish be than they,
And plan for constant light?
“ Not so, not so ; no load of woe
Need bring despairing frown,
For while we bear it we can bear,
Past that, we lay it down.”
A man’s heart gets cold if he does not
keep it warm by living in it, and a censo
rious man is one who ordinarily lives out
of his own heart.
Life is a quarry, out of which we are to
mold and chisel and complete a character.
