SUMMER, SWEET, GOOD-BY.
Cold and red aad purple leaves
• Flutter down the wind;
With the snotv of thistle down
All the lanes are lined.
Clear and keenly blue the sky,
Hurrying birds are flying high,
Singing: “Summer, sweet, good-by !
Summer, sweet, good-by !”
Sheaves are nodding in the sun,
As it passed along,
In a gay, fantastic rout,
Summer’s fairy throng,
Where the fading willow swings,
Where the nest, deserted, ciings,
Listen to the brook, that sings;
“Summer, sweet, good by !”
Woodlands whisper sad farewells;
Squirrels frisk and spring,
Fatter, patter rain the nuts,
For their harvesting.
Flocks of merry birds go by,
’Neath the heat’s uncloud and sky,
Hopeful, trustful, while we sigh:
“Summer, sweet, good-by !”
Heaven gave the bee desire for sweets,
Nor heaven denies her flowers;
The thirsty land for moisture waits,
Nor heaven withholds its showers.
No sooner are the babe’s alarms
To mother’s ears express’d
He finds a shelter in her arms—
His solace at her breast.
Nor are the instincts of the heart
Less subjects of heaven’s care;
Nor would it sympathies impart
Merely to perish there—
The heart that yearns for kindred mind
To share its bliss or pain;
That knows to love, shall surely find
A heart that loves again.
A great many families miss half of
their rightful enjoyment at home from
a want which they do not fully under
stand nor adequately appreciate.—
They know, by contact with some
more favored family circles, that some
thing is lacking in their own; but too
often they accept the situation with
with only a sigh of regret, and with
out any effort to find out the trouble
and remedy it. A close student of
home life will not fail to discover that
the essential element of home happi
ness is thorough confidence and har
mony among its inmates. No costly
furnishing, no tasteful decorations—
nothing ttiat wealth or genius can
supply can make a happy home when
mutual love aud trust are
The poor man, in his daily struggle
with hardship aud privation, having
a home “where love is,” may smile at
trials aud keep bis faith strong to the
In commenting upon the lack of this
home spirit, we do not mean to imply
that a majority of homes in our coun
try are in constant conflict and uproar
from the disagreements of their in
mates. We are not writing just for
the especial benefit of quarelsome peo
ple. There are multitudes of perfectly
peaceful aud quiet families who live
under the same roof from day to day,
year after year, knowing as little of
the real life and thought of their homes
as if each member of their circle occu
pied a separate dwelling. In all es
sential points of mutual life there is no
contact, no communion. These people
sit at the same table three times daily
—possibly they bow at the same altar,
but they know nothing of each others
This unfortunate state of affairs
comes about more frequently than
otherwise as a result of parental neg
lect. It is too often thought enough
that children are kept clean and heal
thy, fed and clothed, and not allowed
to quarrel with each other. A few
more painstaking parents make an ef
fort to prevent the larger and strong
er children from imposing upon the
lessor ones; but very few have any
idea of cultivating friendship among
their little ones. So it often happens
that children And their favorite play
mates outside of home; and in time,
their best friends aud strongest at
tachments are foreign to the home
circle. Children so trained, or so left
without training, are not ready in ma
turer years for the duties of home
aud society; aud many hard lessons
are needed to teach what should have
been learned inseusibly at the firesde
in the early years of life.
To accustom your children to ob-
servo perfect courtesy towards each
other, aud to plant among them the
genu i of harmony and love that shall
bind them together so strongly that
distance and laps of years can never
separate their hearts, is to fit them
for life more perfectly than auy other
course of training can do, and it will
be worth all the time and patience it
Mingle the fear of God with busi
ness; it will not abate a man’s indutry,
but sweeten it; if he prosper, ho is
thankful to God that gives him power
to get wealth; if he miscarry he is pa

of the God he fears. It turns the vei'y
employment of his calling to a kind of
religious duty and exercise of his re
ligion, without detriment to it.
The courts have decided that if a
woman iouds money to her husband
she cannot get it back. This decision
will not be new to many wives.

SOME FACTS ABOUT THE FOREST OF
The forests of Europe are estimated
as being 500,000,000 acres in extent,
or about 20 per cent, of the whole
area of the continent. In North
America it is reckoned that 1,460,000,-
000 acres are covered with trees, of
which 900,000,000 are in the British
North America. In South America
the forests occupy 700,000,000 acres.—
The total amount for the two conti
nents of the New World and Europe
gives 6,600,000 geographical miles. The
proportion of forest land to the whole
area of Europe, as above stated, is
computed at 20 per eent; in America,
21 per eent.
Supposing, therefore, 20 per cent,
to be the proportion in Asia, Africa
and Australia, the grand total of the
forests of the world would cover a
space of over 7,734,000 geographical
miles. The areas of .State forests and
woodlands are estimated at the follow
ing figures in the following European
countries: Prussia, 6,200,000 acres;
Bavar a, 3,294,000 acres; France 2,700-
000 acres; Austria, 2,230,000 acres;
Hanover, 900,000 acres; Wurtemburg,
469,007 acres; Saxony, 394,000 acres;
England, 112,376 acres.
The range in height of trees varies
from the miniature alpine willows of a
few inches in height to the stupen
dous Wellingtonia, which grows 350
feet, although it is stated that one of
the eucalpyti often reaches a height of
450 in Victoria. In Sclavotia a tree
called the sapin attains a height of
275 feet, and the umbrella pines of
Italy 200 feet. The California big
tree is 3aid to girth 96 feet. The de
struction of woods and lorests, how
ever, is very enormous, and in the ma
jority of instances no attempts are
being made for the reproduction. In
South Africa, we are told, couutless
numbers of beautiful forest trees are
destroyed and laid waste annually. In
New Zeland the 30 per cent of the
forest existing in 1830 had sunk to 28
in 1867, and to 18 in 1873, which rate
of reduction, if continues, would re
sult in total destruction by 1879. In
America, in the United States espe
cially, the consumption of timber is
enormous, and although public atten
tion has been called to that matter,
and the United States statute of
March, 1875, imposes a fine of SSOO
or a year’s imprisonment for wanton
injury or destruction of trees, and also
a line of S2OO or six month’s imprison
ment for allowing cattle to injure
trees “on national grounds,” the
yearly consumption and improvi
dent use of timber is almost incredi
Although, says the Scientific Ameri

to show the exact rate of speecj, with
Avhich they are using up the wood
supply, it is easy to see that it is be
ing done with great rapidity. Taking
the legitimate use of lumber, indus
tries based on its manufacture consti
tute the second in point of magnitude
in America, and are only exceeded by
the iron interest. About 150,000 per
sons are stated to be employed in pro
ducing sawed lumber alone; $143,500,-
000 are invested therein, “and 1,395,-
000 lath, 2,265,000,000 shingles and
12,756,000,000 feet of timber are year
On the secondary interests based on
the use of lumber as a raw material,
carpentery, cabinet-making, shipbuild
ing, etc., millions of people are em
ployed. According to Prof. Brewer’s
assertion, wood forms the fuel of two
thirds of the population, and the par
tial fuel of nine-tenths of the remain
ing third. Add this to the former
estimate, and some idea will be ob
tained of tbe enormous drain upon
the American foxests that is constant
ly in progress. Asa fact, it is well
known that in 1871, as many as 10,000
acres of forest were stripped of their
timber to supply Chicago with fuel,
and yet no attempt is made to re
The following from the pen of Horace
Greeley is too true, and applicable to
this day: “Our people are two widely
inclined to shun the quiet ways of
productive labor and try to live and
thrive in the crooked paths of specula
tion and needless traffic. We have
deplorably few boys learning trades,
with ten times too many anxious to
“get into business,” that is to devise
some scheme whereby they may live
without work. Of the journeymen
mechanics now at wotk in this city, we
judge that two-thirds were born in
Europe; and the disparity is steadily
augmenting. One million families are
trying to live by selling liquors,
tobacco, candy, etc., in our cities, who
could be spared therefrom without the
slightest public detriment; and if
these were transferred to the soil, and
set to growing grain, meat, wool, etc.,
or employed in smelting the metals
or weaving the fabrics for which we
are still running into debt in Eu
rope, our country would increase its
wealth at least twice as fast as now,
and there would be far less complaint
of dull trade and hard times.

Asa general proposition, it may be
laid down that persons will not change
essentially after marriage. A belief
that they would has been the cause of
countless unhappy marriages. They
will be just about the same after as
before, and, if anything, a little more
likely to give way to strong natural
proclivities, or peculiarities of temper.
If you would not marry a young wo"
man, provided you believed she would
continue to be as she is now, without
any very marked change in her dispo
sition, then you do a very perilous
thing to marry her at all.
The same rule, on the other hand,
applies to the young men. Many and
many a girl has made shipwreck of
her happiness for life by marrying a
young man in the confidence that af
ter marriage she would wield such an
influence over him as to reform his
wild habits. She finds her influence

years filling what may also be termed
the post of servant or doing the work
of one. This is looked upon as an ap
prenticeship to domestic economy.
She differs from a servant, however, in
this—she receives no w:*ges; on the
contrary, her parents often pay for the
care taken of her, as well as her cloth

by the family with deference and con

families receive similar training, with
this difference, however, that they re

who was trained in this way. Conse

It is to be deplored that our young
people are reluctant to marry because
they canuot at once set up expensive
or stylish housekeeping. Late mar
riages are becoming so largely charac
teristics of our social life on these
false and selfish grounds of social
economy, that society as a whole, and
religious life in particular are serious
ly damaged. If a man has gained a
position that enables him to marry
with ordinary prudence, let him marry,
and let not the prudence be pressed
too hard; young love, if true and god
ly, will make early struggle wholesome
and joyous. If he has found a woman
who will make him happy, let him take
her to a home, the loving wife of his
youth. His life and his fortune will
be better for it.

‘Hurrah, boys, for Hayes!’
Not a solitary cheer responded. One

crowd and remarked:

don’t cheer for Hayes; we are Tilden

e talk of pretty women as if they,
of all others, were the elect; as if wo
man’s sole claim to admiration rested
on her possession of fine eyes or luxu
riant hair. “Is she pretty ?’’ is the
first question asked concerning anew
acquaintance, as though that embraced
the whole subject. A pretty woman,
in the private lexicon of masculinity,
signifies a woman interesting from
whatever cause. Who lias not known
women to be called pretty that could
hardly boast of a single handsome
feature ? Who has not been acquain

who has a distinctly graceful manner,
or an elegant air, or fine tact, or a tal

pretty, and the adjective is repeated
until it is fastened upon and constant

EAT TO LIVE.
An old gentleman on the verge of
ninety recently told his friends that no
one ever repented of eating too little.
He had been ailing and weakly up to
twenty-two years, stuffing himself and
overloading his stomach by advice of
his friends and physicians. Then he
determined to adopt the other course
and eat less. He discovered the secret
of knowing when ho had enough, and
the faculty of restraining the demands
of his appetite. ‘Eat to live’ was the
principle that made his life a physical
success, not ‘live to eat..’ Here indeed
is the great secret of a great deal that
is amiss with many of us. We are in
the habit of eating too much—more
than our digestive powers can tackle,
aud that which is not assimilated more
or less poisons. The system becomes
overcharged and gives any latent ten
dency to disease within us every facil
ity for developing itself. The question
is not so much what to eat as what
quantity to eat, and nothing but a
sharp lookout kept by ourselves can
give us the answer.
It is astonishing to see how well a
may live on a small income, who has a
handy and industrious wife. Some
men live and make a far better ap
pearance on six or eight dollars a
week than others do on eighteen dol

his wife is good for nothing. She will
even upbraid her husband for not liv
ing in as good style as her neighbor,
while the fault is entirely her own.—
His neighbor has a neat, capable and
industrious wife, and that makes the
difference. So look out, young men,
before you go into matrimony, for it is
a lottery iu which most men can hold
only one ticket, and if that turns out
a blank, your whole life had better be
a blank too. Luckily, no one need go
into the wedded state with his eyes
closed, as is the case with lotteries,
and we judge all who are sensible
enough to use their optics may draw a
The Philadelphia Times says: Iu

every Department of the State Gov

the Judiciary i3 Republican and the
militia is composed entirely of colored
Republicans. If peace caixnot be
maintained the Republicans are re

not able to maintain the peace he may
invoke the aid of the courts, order out

in full confidence that either will do
