A boy Between fourteen and fifteen years of age sat Quot Reading. He moved uneasily As if pain had disturbed him but he did not lift his eyes from the pages on which they were resting. A a a. 4 the harder a Mother slaves for her children the less they Oare for her. The Hoy Moyed again almost with a Start As though the pain Felt an instant before had suddenly increased a a a a. A All children Are thankless 1 so. The speaker kept on talking to a Friend Jet really thrusting at the not All a answered the Friend. I have a Mother but i know my. Heart in regard to her. It is full of love and gratitude and i cannot remember the time when it was not to _ a there Are exceptions to All rules and besides there Are few women like your a Banc would be a cold heart indeed into which she did hot inspire love a a 4 love begets love that old trotto Story and of True to Day As it was a thousand years ago. If children grow up cold and thankless towards Thair parents it they Early separate from them going off a a world. And treating them with neglect tho fault in most oases rests with the parents. A they did not make themselves Lovely in their a a there followed this a dead silence for some Momenta. The boy had let Bis Book full from. Before his eyes and was listening intently. His Mother saw this and Hud a Quick perception of what was passing in his mind. Edward a said she a i done to like boys in my bed room. Go Down stairs. This was not spoken harshly. The Mother s tone had changed considerably., r. Tho Hoy arose without hesitation Ana Leit the a in it Len to think its always Good to talk be More children a remarked the lads Mother As soon Asho had retired. 1 in. A Quot a proper regard to our language and conduct before children a was a theory of tho gravest consideration they have Keon instincts their eyes Are they read us and know us. Sometimes better than we know ourselves.�?T. A a Thov a a Sharp enough i suppose a but not so Sharp As ail that a was a in a not one of those that make children of sex Tonto the ease will not Altor the result my Friend. Of that to May be certain. As to Are to our children so will they be to us. Love begets love and kindness Good will.

Vhey know my 4 so i inferred. In that Way Yod Hurt them. You put to boil future on trial and write out a verdict of condemnation when it is impossible for Thorn to vindicate themselves against your Oruel charges. I saw your Sharp thrusts at him. He wrist no party to Tom baldwins a filial not and it was q hard thing in you my Friend to make Toms delinquency tho occasion for smiting your own Sun whom you May bid to you if to will by triple cords of love not to be broken or push away to a Distri Uco where he can feel no warmth or no attraction. Take care 1 you Are on dangerous 4 of you make too much of children a was answered but with a Ltd be obstruction in manner. A a. 4 they Are simply human beings. They have Sensitivo souls Quick to receive impressions. Tender to love but hard or resentful toward All unkindness. They Are creatures of feeling rather than thought not generally holding malice but rarely losing tho memory of pain from unjust infliction. In a Ftp a Yomara this memory is often revived. I it is my opinion that in a Largo num Erpf oases where children neglect their parents in old age the cause lies just Here .4 Allol which is simply indicative a said the lads Mother,4 and a poor compliment to human a 4 human nature does no to often suffer unjustly through hard judgement a was answered. 4 but i am not offering an apology for her shortcomings Only look after the cause. To prevent is better than to cure. Forewarned forearmed. Is it not much tho Wiser Courso to make sure of our child rent a love in tho present a a. 4 you break As though i did no to love my children a dark stain marked tho woman a Cheeks there were sudden flashes in her eyes. She was a woman of Quick Tom per. V 4 every feeling has its sign a was calmly replied. 4 love angor dislike a each expresses itself in a different Way. These signs everybody knows. Even the babe of one by Iet summer May read them. Edward feels that you do not Lovo him.?�?T. 4 who says that he feels so a. The Mother started. Thero was a mingling of anger with Surprise in her face. A 4 must it not to that you withhold too often the signs of love a. 41 shall get angry at you if you talk to me any longer in this Strain 4 no my dear Friend you must not get angry at me. Too mrs he. Sweet memories of a the past Are shared Between he. Bear with me now As one who holds you in her heart. Shall i Relato to you an incident that occurred in my Bouse Only yesterday ? it is under the warrant of this incident that 1 have ventured on the plainness of speech which has disturbed you the red spots faded off the mothers of Eek. The keen Light went out of her Oyes a a a a a. _ 4 go on a she said her voice dropping Down from a to Sharp key. A a 4 Edward bad called to Bee the we always like to have him come. To is never rude nor coarse in his manners but gentlemanly in his bearing beyond what is usually seen in lads of his age. I have More than once compared him with my oldest son and wished that John resembled him in Many things. The two boys were in tho parlor alone. John i am sorry to say is not always to be trusted. He is Over curious and opt to meddle with things that should be snored from his to has to come interested in insects and has begun to collect and preserve them. There was a vase of Wax Flowers on the mantel piece the ingenious maker of which had placed several imitations of Moth and beetles among the leaves. The vase was covered with Glass. Johns new formed interest in entomology had Given a special attraction to these Moths and beetles and on this occasion he went a so far. As to. Lift the Glass Oover Irig that he might obtain a closer View. In venturing to do this one of those accidents that so frequently happen with children and grown up people when they Are not doing just right of purred. The. A a v a u i . Trike of in nil. And Mother sold you ?4 because she loves me and Driows that scolding make me Hal so sorry As what i am 41 wish that Iny Mother loved me a said Edward in a tone of voice so sad end lodging that it brought tears into my eyes a a a the Mother of Edward caught her breath at this. Her lips moved As if she were about to speak but she repressed what was in her thoughts and kept Simerit. Of. Course your Mother loves you a answered John. So the Friend but Edward said no i m she she does no to it give to 4 Why do you say that, John. If she loved rile she would t be always Soo Dirig me Rind hurting me by bad words no matter what i do. Of John if i a Mother As you id be the happiest boy alive 1 id do anything for her there was a silence for Somo time. It was broken by the Friend who Baid a a forgive me for having told you the wounds of a Friend tire better than tho kisses of on enemy. Forgive what May seem an exultation of myself Aboye you. A he who knows my heart knows that in there is no Pride of superiority. He who knows How weak i am How often i fall Short How often passion gets the better of reason How near it was to bearing me Down yesterday. It was in his strength that i overcame and helped Iny boy Instorio of hurting him in his strength you May Oyer Coine also arid win the love of a child whose heart is Athirst for your love As is Flower Athirst for the Dew and rain. A. The Mother of Edward buried her face into her hands. For a Little while her body Shook with half hooked sobs. Then she looked up at her Friend. Her eyes were wet her face Pale Hor lips curved with pain and grief. .4 you Are not Hurt with me a 4 no no a she answered. 4 not with you but with myself. What have i been doing ? what madness has possessed me. I know that love begets love that in mrs. Howitt a Beautiful words it has readier will than fear. I know also that Byrd Ness begets hardness that driving is More difficult and far less pertain than leading. And yet knowing r �11 this i Haye sought of Rulo nay children by passion to drive instead of leading them into the right ways. No no. I am not Hurt with you. For All this Plain speaking which i so Minoh heeded i. Thank you from tho depth of my heart. If it is not better with both me and my children in future it will not by my fault. But it shall be better 1�?T. And it was better. How quickly All changed under a new order of Home government. Lovo and kindness found Swift obedience where Auger and harshness had met obstruction. Sunshine dropped in through a Hundred places which Hud been closely barred Oga Irist its Sweet influences arid de Fard wondering at the pm Prisant change Drew nearer and nearer to his Mother and Felt that she loved him. 0, love f swept to All hearts. Be who should give of its treasures Seo to that your hand fail not in its dispensation. It has signs peculiarly its own which Are never mistaken. If you would win love hang out tho .

Just when you Start for bed and when Cobby of lands at Tok Oil regions. 1 have readied tho land of Oil having taken a safer route than the Erie. A. Pennsylvania is a Good sized state and it takes 80metimo to get Thuro. When you do get there you with Oil Hadnot Como. is plenty of Oil and that is nil except lots of people. A i am for 44 Snake run a the most Likely Placo for Oil. They Call these places runs because everybody who is after Oil runs hero. Every Man Yuu meet is the president director or eng queer of a Petroleum company. The natives who Aro White people and resemble country folks Livo by Selling Laud and Greenhorn. They have a system in both transactions. They double the Price of land every morning. If you know anybody who 1ms got a few vacant lots that to wants to soil Tell him to bring them out Here. It the folks Are so Busy looking for Oil they Haven to time to build Homes and everybody is afraid to put up a. House for fear he might cover an Oil Well. A consequently the hotels Are a Tittle crowded. Tithe Muggins hotel where i put up is much so. A. A Muggins Trio proprietor is the most accommodating Man you Eyer saw. A pity Railroad conductor Isnit a Mircu Stanco to him. Ahe has Only got six Beds in the Bouse but he is always ready to take in everybody. He took to in. Aleo two Hundred More Petroleum pilgrims. The sleeping accommodations Are various. We go to bed in platoons. When the first platoon get asleep they Are carefully taken out of bed and Hung Over a close Tine. To Sorond platoon go through the same process until everybody is provided for. A preferring to sleep alone i slept of the Mantle piece with the Coal scuttle for a Pillow. _. As i observed kind is previous out Here i bought a lot ten inches by four for ten thousand dollars and commenced operations. The next thing is to commence want a Sharp bore. A Pabio lecturer wont do neither will a skating Gimlet. I took a Brake and bit Aud went in. _ got Down about seven thousand feet in to the bowels of the land when i Maine to an impediment. 1 found that i had struck the pro adamites Rook of the ossified strata of the silurian formation. A this is geology and you perhaps wont understand it but i will explain it All in the paper to the historical so Bioty i am about a Candle and went Down to see about it. 1 found a big Meg therium Aho it six Hundred feet Long and wide in a capital state of preservation. I got him out and will Send him along by express. Went on Boring through forty feet of Sand encountered a strange smell of Sulphur which alarmed the native who sold me the land and to ease Lis console Noe gave Back half the Money and wanted it me to Stop Boring. Told him i was bound to keep on until i struck Ile or come out on the other Side of creation. Bored on. Went through about sixty thousand feet More when suddenly the Brace and bit went in and there was a grand report like that made by butlers powder boat that did no to blow up fort Fisher. _ things were slightly confused for awhile. A Section of Pennsylvania went up and i went of with it. I go less i Mast have come Down again is the next idea i. Had was finding myself comfortable Hung Over the clothes line at Muggins hotel. An investigation in to it the matter showed that i had a truck through into a Gas factory in China it Ipoh had exploded at both ends of the bore killing half a million of chinese. The Caria cities on our Side were confined to one native and a Small i Haven to Given up yet. Who is a for an address recently delivered before the grand Lodge of Iowa by Rev. Bro. I. K. Fuller grand orator to take the following answer to the foregoing question. 44 latitude and Longitude on tho Earth s surface is measured by degrees minutes and seconds and tho smaller divisions the minutes and seconds Are esteemed to be equally in portrait with tho degrees and absolutely in dispensable to the perfection of Mea Sliment. So that he who pm going undue Mph Sis on tho degrees is unmindful of the minutes will to regarded As unskillful and defective in Bis Calculous. And so Brethren in computing our masonic latin do Odd Longitude it is to be feared too great stress hns been Laid upon tho degrees As such while too Little importance has Beon attached to minutes and seconds or what masonry enjoins upon us Between the degrees. It is to this direction this trim Inal want of attention to what him. Been Falso by called the Little things of masonry that such false estimates Bavo been made As to tho Chariot or of our institution and that profane have sometimes said 44 masons Aro no better than other people a whereas masons should so exemplify their principles in their lives As to Oon Strnic others to desire admission to our rights lights and benefits. But i hasten to the consideration who is a master Mason i hear a brother say to is one who is regularly initiated passed and raised according to the due and ancient does this really make a master Mason ? i answer unhesitatingly no. Masonry a As you Are aware is a great moral Soi enee and in strictness he is Only a master Mason who lab Suo needed in mastering the whole subject in All its parts whether speculative Perco Tivo or practical. Ii who has simply graduated in the third degree of masonry he s Only entered the Vestibule of our glorious old Temple having pot yet penetrated far enough to become familiar with its Sublime mysteries. If in a Christian country to profess Christian religion and join a Church necessarily make a Man a Christian then to have taken the third degree of masonry makes a Man a genuine Mason but the premise being Falso the conclusion a a of course untrue still fur Thoi a Porson May take upon himself the solemn obligations of christianity and still have Dono nothing More than a a stolen the livery of heaven to Servo so if you were to ask a brother what makes him a Mason and to were to answer my obligation be would have but half answered your question because his obligation Only makes him a Mason nominally not tie Facto. It is the to King out that obligation into the life that makes him such in reality it is profession and practice married Faith and works As cause and effect that illustrate masonry. In a word then a master Mason is one whose heart is always in the right place always palpitating at the sight of human woe whose conscience is trembling by sensitive and True to its Trust As the Needle to the Magnet who comes up out of the dust and Toni the complications and antagonisms of daily life unsullied with his soul perpendicular to the Zenith. He is a Man Whoso hand is never lifted up in violation of gods Law As expressed in the Decolo Guo but who is always ready to mingle his Una footed tears with the suffering sons Aud daughters of mortality. Such is the Ideal of a blaster Mason an Ideal which i am glad to know has Many illustrious exemplification Roan Glass shield slipped from Ohns a hand and Ora oked to pieces on the floor. The noise startled and excited my. I went hastily to the parlor and saw at a glance the damage Bioh had been done and also Dempre Hontol de the cause of the disaster. Edward looked Pale and frightened and self condemnation had cd my with Accident. Even through my indignation which could not be stayed i saw that hard words were struggling to come through my lips but i repressed them. Experience warned me to keep silence until 1 could speak calmly and under the influence of reason. A i stood for a few moments looking at the shivered Glass Rind then a without trusting my ups to say anything went out Tor the dust pan and Brush. 1 was glad that i Oon strolled myself. It is my expense Noe that scolding always does harm and even when it work correction of bad habits i am certain that a different Way would Lave been better. 1 was quite self possessed when i returned. As i stopped to gather up tho broken fragments of Glass John came up close to me al did not speak to nor look at him. Edward had drawn Bank to a Distant part of the room. Silently the work of collecting the Pic Cea of Glass wont on John standing Noar me All the while. It was done find i was about rising when i Felt his Arm across by shoulder. 4 in a so sorry a he said in a penitent voice laying his face Down against mine which i had turned towards him. 4 it was wrong to Tourish it i know hut i thought it would me so careful.

About is probable As that the rail Bird turns into a Bull Frog in Winter which is firmly believed by several residents of this locality.

Every your about the Middle of september tho swallows Yoro observed to enter this in a a millions and Wero not seen any More until in the Spring when they would come out with n loud noise or Roar.

Hence the following from a writer Tuths syr Amoruso journal is pertinent. He says a i notice that the leaves of tho Gooseberry Are already infested with the eggs that Hatch. Into those Worms that proved so destructive to this Bush and to the currant last year. The insect that lays these eggs is rather soul iter than a House Fly a big hit slightly resembles the Abdomen is however of a right color.

The eggs which Are White and boat one twentieth fun Inch Long Are deposited on the under sides of the leaves in rows along the. More prominent veins. They Are readily removed by ribbing the loaf Between thumb , or if strange burial customs in Sicily churchyards Are unknown. The corpses Are placed in layers in to vaults of Ebu Relios without n coffin and when Dooin position performs its work tho remains of the poor Aro piled together in a Corner and sometimes walled in but those who can afford it Havo to boil remains placed in a Niche in a special apartment called the chamber of death where for a Long time the hideous relio3 of humanity May to seen by the curious. It is a Largo Hall on the ground floor lighted by a Large window like that of an artist a a studio.

If this Jpn of destroying the eggs and mature insects where found in thoroughly carried out by giving attention to the Bushes for a every Day or two it must of course save the Bushes.
