cluster the dearest scenes ol lite, how
we luve to return aguiu to visit.
\\ hen our week’s work is doue, we
gather up on >Su urday night and go
over, and when nearing the spot, how
we cherish the pleasing thought of
taking them by surprise, and linding
them unprepared; bill, "lo, mother
lias thought of all. The cooking is
all done, washing and ironing ull
over, the kitchen as neat und tidy as
the room we call our parlor. Father
has tho milking done, garden all
worked over, and the pile of store-
wotid equal to the emergency, and
when we look into his garden our
own la comes shapeless and uninvi
ting. lint we must continue until
we,scan all. We must see eaoh room,
take a peep into the wardrobe, pan
try and cellar, must steal quietly in
to the parlor, and take another look
at thj* pictures. Somehow, when we
tome to supper, it Hums that moth
er’s bread, cjtfje and pies are so
much better than oars; it may be
taut it is just because they were pre
pared by mother, hut to us it. is so.
My parents lived some years after
I luft home, and how eager I was to
go back again to see them. Of all
the seas j U4, I thought Autumn tl.e
fittest to go on such tours. 1 could
then not only enjoy their company,
but so much else which was so very
appropriate. The “wull-tlower and
the violet” had given unmistakable
evidence that their season was pass
ing. The ripe shock of corn harves
ted, the meadowB turning brown, all
lold us plainly that the., t«o, were
being fast prepared for the great,
harvest above. Each visit they hud
grown older, weaker, and had gon*
nearer tho other shore. Finally we
made the last visit. They were yone.
The last farewell had been spoken—
ull was dark and still. We could
then only see their pictures, but when
we called their dear names they did
not answer. Upon the mantel, still
ns death, stood the old kitchen clock,
into whose lace we hud so often
looked, and whose bunds had poin
ted to the hour which called us from
tho tield to partake of the comm&n
blessings of life, und which in soieuui
hours nad told us when to deal out
the temedies for loyed ones, w.io were
sickening and dying; these hands,
like the hands which had so untiring
ly ministered to us, were silent and
still. The “old arm-chair,” whose
uccustomed place wus close upon the
hearth, which hud rested tired limbs
uud aching heads, was vucant. The
old family Bible, which had given
instruction to all, had been opened,
read and closed by them for t he last
time, and lay quietly upon the stand.
The motto over the door, “Sweet
Home,” now had no meaning there.
Although now a umn, uear the noon
day of life, I still feel the need of
such advice as they so often gave me.
1 feel weak and lonely without them
now. Bat'jinay I not spend profita
ble hours, meditating upon my early
surroundings, in contrast with thut
of many orphans, whose hare feet and
neglected hearts are thrown from the
ungratefulness, though I was but a
little hoy, perliapHsix years old, and
though a trivial tiling, the sting lin
gers in iny heart. Prior to my birth,
through mislortune, father lmd been
reduced to extreme j overly and been
rendered homeless, lie then took a
lease for nine yea it, built a cabin on
it, and iu thi/Vify^Kjcjit home 1 was
born. One day morning
mother told us to wush and prepare
for our clean clothes, which perhaps
only consisted of a shirt; maybe a
pair of cotton punts. For want ol
better, mother lual put buttons on
my wristbands of kci own make, com
posed ot pasteboard, covered with
muslin, in washing they became
wet. 1 tried to unb^iton them, failed,
became angry, showed my ill-temper-
and tried to pull thorn oil'. Mother
looked ut me with a countenance
mingled with pit) and love, raid:
•‘.My child, they wsre all I had.”
That arrow tiiudolu wound iu my
heart which in*? vl-vcr been healed.
1 was sensitive, quick-tempered, soon
angry, but as quick to repent when
convinced of my Wrongs. In an in
stant 1 thought ot.Jier toil and care
for me, and such a jack of reciproca
tion on my purt. 'Tins lutle incident
though trilling within itself, taught
tr.e a lesson. Let iiie entreat all chil
dren who may irud ibis, to never
thrust an arrow into mother's h.uri,
which will rebound und wound your
own beyond the balm of healing.
When we have lost mother, we have
lost our best earthly friend. Although
lather uud mother, leuVe us, it is not
lorever. Only a little while and we
will follow them. Let us haste in
our preparation to meet them, that
we may he permitted to enjoy their
