“The truth is that some women
are mothers and some wives; very
few are both.” The listeners to
this declaration sat still looking
at the speaker and at each other.
There was assent in the faces,
though there was no sound of the
“Is it not true,” continued the

and has her being for that baby.

“Well,” asked a soft voice,
“should she not be a mother be
fore everything else?”
“No,” was the emphatic res
ponse. “She should be a wife
first and mother second.”
“Now, we cannot settle this
question, or rather you two can
only settle your own opinion more
firmly, and that’s not necessary,”
laughed the third member of the

Is it true? Are there not homes
where husband finds that his place
is filled by the first baby, and
each following one pushes him
more and more into the back
ground? He is expected to sub
mit to the usurpation without
comment. He finds that the every
thought of his wife is for the baby
whose small wants, it would seem
might be supplied, and his health
and happiness maintained, with
out absorbing so large a part of
the wife’s care and attention.
Is it true, as is sometimes as
serted, that husbands are often
jealous of their own children? If
it is true, does it not follow that
there is a cause?-that the husband
in whom 1 , perhaps, there is more
of the lover than the father, needs
always the companionship of the
woman he loves? —that because he
loves her, lie is not willing that
she should not simply become the
mother of his children! A man
commenting on a wife and mother
who had a remarkable husband
and remarkable children, but of
whom you always thought first as
the wife of her husband, said:
“That woman has the art of being
a wife. Her children never drove
her husband out of her mind for
a moment; he was always first.
How many women ever stand in
their own homes as she does? She
is first in their hearts, their
thoughts. She is the center from
which all draw their inspiration,
or think they do. Why? Because
she has kept her place first as the
wife of her husband. Those chil
dren saw their father first in their
mother’s thoughts, their mother
first in their father’s thoughts.
They learned always that this love
was the first, and the love for the
children the second love. The
house was run for the family; but
if one person must take precedence
it was the father, because his
place and work were of first im
portance to the home and the
world. The children are well
mannered because they never for
a moment suppose themselves of
the first importance. They were
allowed to choose, collectively or
individually, where choice affect
ed them only. Their education
was of great importance to the pa
rents, and the children understood
this. Never, in that home, was
any r important decision affecting
the life of a child the decision 'of
one parent. Nor was discipline
the law of one. The parents con
sulted when the act of the child
demanded.” It is the unity of
thought and common interest that
makes family life perfect.
The greatest blunder a woman
can make is to thrust her husband
in the background of her thought,
or give him a second place ,n the
home, or permit him to take the
attitude that the children are hers.
The wise woman, without conten
tion, compels recognition of the
fact that the children are theirs,
and that children’s best interests
can be served only the moral in
telligence of father and mother is
directing their training.

The “Congressional Quartet” and Its
A number of representatives went
down the river early in the season
to visit one of the numerous rod
and gun club houses that prevail in
that vicinity. Fishing wasn't very
good and amusements palled, so the
“congressional quartet” was formed.
It was composed of Speaker Hen
derson of lowa and Representatives
Landis and Overstreet and Sergeant
at Arms Ransdell of the senate, all
of whom come from Indiana.
There was a long discussion as to
what the quartet should sing. The
three Indianians voted solidly for
“On the Banks of the Wabash” and
filibustered against any other song.
Asa consequence the quartet sang
the “Wabash” song seven times in
rapid succession. Then by some
skillful maneuvering Speaker Hen
derson subdued the state pride of
the Hoosiers, and the quartet sang
“There Is a Hole In the Bottom of
No vote could be obtained on any
other song, and the quartet alter
nated these songs for three days.
There was a great demand for the
services of the quartet after the re
turn to Washington, but it was im
possible to secure an increase in its
repertory. The Hoosiers say the
“Wabash” is the only song ever
written, and, while they allowed the
speaker to have his “Bottom of the
Sea” song once in awhile as a per
sonal compliment, they would not
go a step further than that.—Wash

forces during the war of the rebel
It was at the close of the battle
of Gettysburg. As General. Lee
rode from the field he came upon a

young Union soldier, a mere hoy,
lying on the grass, wounded. The
boy, though painfully hurt and un
able to rise, lmd a spirit not to be
quenched. As he recognized the
Confederate uniform he raised him
self upon his elbow. “Hurrah for
the Union!” he cried defiantly,
though with feeble voice.
General Lee got down from his
horse, went over to the boy and laid
his hand tenderly on his head. “I
hope, my son,” lie said, “that you
are not much hurt and that you will
soon he well.”

Climate of Alaska.
An English physician has lately
reported on the diseases prevalent
in Alaska, after a residence of six
teen months in the country. There
are two seasons, winter, the season
of packing ice; summer, the sea
son of swamps. The winter lasts
for nine months, the summer for
three. Among human miladies
cerebro-spinal-meningitis is very
prevalent, sometimes in epidemic,
sometimes in sporadic form. It
is often difficult to distinguish
from the cerebral form of typhoid.
Scorbutus is also widespread.
Rheumatism is frequent, and usu
ally takes the neuralgic type. In
flammatory rheumatism is rare.
Pneumonia is almost unknown,
strange to say. Affections of the
digestion are very frequent, owing
to poor food; nervous diseases,
such as locomotor ataxia, etc., are
also frequent. Alcoholism and
the like are prevalent, due to the
ennui of the long winter, but on
whole, intemperance is less harm
ful in Alasku than in more south
ern climates. Insanity is by no
means rare, and it declares itself
most frequently in winter, owing
to ennui, absence of occupation,
lack of exercise and isolation. Its
usual form is acute melancholia,
almost always followed by acute
mania. Suicidal mania is also
frequent. Taken altogether, the
catalogue of Alaskan diseases is a
long one, and indicates that a
vigorous physique and morale is
required to assist them.
