DALTON, GEORGIA, TUESD;
SHE HATH FALLEN ASLEEP.
She hath fallen asleep! It is well.
She has thus lain her life burthen down.
Long years did she bear the stern cross,
But it fitted her brow for the crown!
She may have forgotten e’eu now
That ever earth taught her to weep.
Let us say, while in sorrow we bow,
It is well she has fallen asleep.
She hath fallen asleep! Fold the robe
O’er heart, so pulseless And still.
She hath gone to her Father and ours,
And our grief is His glory and will.
The rest which He gives his beloved
Is Iler's—the untroubled and deep ;
And because we so loved her we say,
It is well she hath fallen asleep.
She hath fallen asleep! It is well.
She will not be weary again.
We shall lie down beside her ere long ;
Then why should our weak fair complain ?
We shall claim on the morn of our rising,
Victor palms, which the seraphims keep.
Oh, what crown the beloved
In Christ, who have fallen asleep !
MY MOTHER AT THE GATE.
O there’s many a lovely image
On memory’s silent wall,
There’s many a cherished picture
That I tenderly recall. .
home of my childhood,
With its singing brooks and biggg,
Thefefriends who grew beside
With their loving looks and woras ;
The flowers that decked the wildwood,
The roses fresh and sweet,
The bluebells and the daises
That blossomed at my feet—
All, all are very precious,
And often conies to me
Like breezes from that country
That shines beyond death’s sea.
But the sweetest, dearest image
That fancy can create,
Is the image of my mother—
My mother at the gate.
But she has crossed the river,
She is with the angels now.
I She has laid aside earth’s burdens,
And the crowu is on her brow.
i She is clothed in elean, white linen,
And she walks the streets of gold—
O, loved one, safe forever
Within the Saviour’s fold.
No sorrowing thought can reach thee;
No grief is thine to-day.
God gives thee joy for mourning,
He wipes thy tears away.
Thou art waiting in that city
Where the holy angels wait.
And when I cross the river,
I will see thee at the gate.

To eat, drink and sleep; to be exposed
to the darkness and the-Jigfit; to-pace
around the mill of habit and turn the
wheel of wealth; to make reasen our
book-keeper, and turn thought into an
implement of trade—this is not life. In
all this but a poor fraction of the con
sciousness of humanity is awakened;
and the sanctiest still slumber which
make it most worth while to be. Knowl
edge, truth, love, beauty, goodness, faith,
alone give vitality to the mechanism of
existence. The length of mirth, which
vibrates through the heart; the tears
which freshen the dry wastes within;
the music which brings childhood back ;
the prayer that calls the future near;
the doubt that makes us hesitate ; the
death which startles us with its mystery;
the hardships which force us to struggle;
the anxiety that ends in trust —these are
the true nourishments of the natural be

the response is “eighteen dollar.”
“Well, sir, I like your coat very much,

“Yell, mine frent, z.e ywdcc is noting
so you like ze coat. We let you take

The customer still complains of the
price, saying that fifteen dollars was too
much. This was too heavy for the

him into a dark corner, whispers in his

Animals, when not living by
respectable efforts, are either parasitas oi
dependants; many would seem to%av>
trades, or a' - e connected with branches of
industry. There are miners, masons, car
penters, paper manufacturers, weavers,
iqce makers even, all working first for
themselves, and next to propagate their
kind. The miners dig into the earth,
form natural arches and supports, remove
the useless soil; such as the mole the
chinchilla of Peru, the badger, the lion,
ant, as well as certain worms and mol
lusks. The masons build huts and pla
ces according to*all the rules of architec
ture, as the bees and tropical ants; there

the most delicate thread for his telescope,
he applies to a tiny spider. When the
naturalist desires to test his microscope,
he selects a certain shell of a sea insect,
so small that several millions of them in
water could not be visible to the naked
eye, and yet no microscope has yet been
made sufficiently powerful to reveal the
beautiful variegated designs on the ato

has since been corroborated, that a vari
ety of plover enters the crocodile’s mouth,
picks the remnant of food off the animal’s
tongue and from between his teeth. This
living toohpick is necessary, as the tongue
of the crocodile is not mobile.
Lhe Mexican owl, when enjoying a
siesta, puts itself under the guard of a
kind rat, that gives the alarm on the ap

of the body, and are as abundant in per

tricles of the b> ain, in the ball of the eye. i
They are generally either in the form of ;
a leaf or a ribbon, and are not necessarily \
as was once supposed, confined to a spe- '
cial animal. The parasites of fish have
been detected living in the intestines of :
birds; and there are some that, for the
purpose of development, must pass into
the economy of a second animal.
He Was Bound Io Have a Kite
One day last week, a little boy, who
had been standing for some time in front
of a drug store in Baltimore, enviously
eyeing a large reel, well provided with
“simmy dimmy” twine, as the boys call
it, which was fastened to the top of the
counter summoned up courage enough
to walk in and ask for a few yards with
which to fly his kite. The docter bears
a reputation of being a good-natured
man, full of humor, and very fond of
the little ones, but the youngster ap
proached him at a time when he was out
of his usual mood, and he cosequently
gave “No” for an answer. The urchin
had made up his mind to have some of
that cord anyhow, and he got it On
Thursday morning the boy entered the
store accompanied by another boy and a
dog. Boy No. 2, having placed a bottle
on the counter, demurely asked for five
cents worth of squills and pollygollic, and
and while the doctor was filling the
order, boy No. 1 was tying the end of
the cord to the dog’s tail. When the
man of medicine returned to the counter
the reel was flying like fury. The docter
quietly reached for the pallet-having
hung himself over the counter made a
desperate whack at the cranium of the
youngster, who he supposed was sitting
on the floor helping himself But lo I
the boys and the dog Bouncer were not
there. The docter having tried in vain
to stop his reel, was obliged to give it up
on account of the heat it communicated
to the palm of his hand. When he
reached the door he beheld the boys
upon the sidewalk about two blocks off,
and Bouncer in the middle of the street
going at the rate of forty knots an hour,
the string pointing directly toward his
tail. The reel continued to spin for
some time afterward, until it stopped of
its own accord.
The effort of any merchant to get
trade without advertising, is a wrong to
. other business men in the place. Any
one is w’illing to concede that newspapers
are a great benefit to any place, and that
> business amounts to very little in places
, that don’t support one or more papers.
> The men who support the paper do more
, to build up the place, and make it pros
• porous, and draw trade there, than all
j other influences combined. Therefore,
that man does wrong who tries to do
business at the expense of others, and.
j enjoys a prosperity that he does not con- j
f ] tribute to sustain.

street family in Danbury, has discovered
an unique way of extracting teeth. She
suffered nearly a whole week with, an
aching tooth, hut had not the courage to
go to a dentist. One afternoon it trou
bled her so much as to force her to look
about for a remedy, and she finally hit
upon a plan. With a piece of stout
twine she made a loop, which she put

Food for Lean Women.
If any one wishes to grow fleshy, a
. pint of milk taken before retiring at night
. will cover the scrawniest bones. Al
though nowadays we see a great many
, fleshy females, yet there are many lean
. and lank ones, who sigh for the fashiona-
• ble measures of plumpness, and who
would be vastly improved in health and
appearance could their figure be rounded
with good solid flesh. Nothing is more
coveted by a thin woman than a full fig
ure, and nothing else will so rouse the ire
and provoke the scandal of one of the
“clipper-builds” as the consciousness of
■ plumpness in a rival. In cases of fever
and summer complaint milk is now given
with excellent results. The idea that
milk is “feverish” has exploded, and it is
now the physician’s great reliance in bring
ing through typhoid patients, or those in
too low a state to be nourished by solid
food. It is a great mistake to scrimp the
milk pitcher. Take more milk and buy
less meat. Look to your milkmen, have
large-sized,"well-filled milk pitchers on
the table each meal, and you will also
have sound flesh and light docters’ bills.
The Healthfuluess of Lemons.
When people feel the need of an acid if
they would let the vinegar alone, and use
lemons or apples, they would feel just as
well satisfied and receive no injury. A
suggestion may not come amiss as to a
good plan when lemons are cheap in the
market. A person should then purchase
several dozen at once, and prepare them

into a bowl or tumbler—never into a tin;
strain out all the seeds, as they give a
bad taste. Remove all the pulp from the
peels, and boil in water —a pint for a
dozen pulps—to extaract the acid. A
few minutes boiling is enough; then strain
the water with the juice of the lemons ;
put a pound of white sugar to a pint of
the juice; boil ten minutes, bottle it, and
your lemonade is ready. Put a table

An /Imerican A’arn.
An Englishman—traveled, of course
—relates that an American gentleman
who had at an early day gone the over
land route to California told him this:
“We crossed the sand hills near the )
scene of the Indian mail robbery and
massacre of 1857, wherein the driver
and conductor perished, and also all the
passengers but one. But this must have
been a mistake, for at different times
afterward, on the Pacific coast, I was
personally acquainted with a hundred
and thirty-three or four people who were
wounded during the massacre, and
barely escaped with their lives. There
was no doubt of the truth of it—l had it
from their own lips. And one of the
parties told me that he kept coming
across arrow heads in his system for
nearly seven years after the massacre. —
Editor's Drawer, in Harper's Magazine for
Mrs. Sarah K. Putnam, a clairvoyant
physician in Greenfield, Mass., attended
a woman who had diptheria, and scrathed
her finger with a pin while arranging
bandages around the patient’s throat.
The poison of the disease entered the
slight wound, and Mrs. Putnam’s hand,
arm, and at length her whole body be
came affected, causing death. The
Springfield Republican gives this strange
feature of the case: “She claimed to
have been warned of the spirits not to
attend this patient, but that she, having
a great affection for the young lady, fin
ally decided to see if she could save her,
saying she was willing to lose her own
life if necessary to do so.”
In an address delivered before the
British Association for the Advancement
of Science, Dr. Hooker exhibited a won
derful plant called “Dionial.” A Liver
pool paper in an account of it says: “A
fly was captured and put upon a leaf,
which instantly closed, and, on reopen
ing, it was found that the fly was com
pletely dissolved. A bit of beef was
afterwards consumed in the same way.
The leaf was then fed with cheese, which
‘ disagreed with it horribly, and eventu
ally killed it. Dr. Hooker explained
that the plant’s action was precisely sim
ilar to that of the human stomach. The
leaf rejected a piece of wet chalk.”
The Dadeville Headlight, a paper
printed in Tallapoosa county, Alabama,
