Moonlight North and South
Love, we have heard together
The North Sea sing his tune,
Ami felt the wind's wild feather
Brush past our cheeks at noon,
And seen the cloudy weather
Made wondrous with the moon.
Where loveliness is rarest,
'Tis also prized the most;
The moonlight shone her fairest
Along that level coast,
Where sands and dunes the barest,
.Beauty seldom boast.
Far from that bleak and rude land,
An exile I remain,
Fixed in a fair and good land,
A valley and a plain,
Rich in fat fields and woodland,
And watered well with rain.
Last night the full moon's splendor
Shone down 011 Taunton Dene,
And pasture. fresh and tender,
And coppice duskv green.
The heavenly light did render
In one enchanted scene.
One fair unearthly vision,
Yet soon mine eyes were cloj'ed,
And found those fields Elysian
Too rich to be enjoyed,
Or was it our division
Made all my pleasure void ?
Across the window glasses
The curtain then I drew,
And as a seabird passes,
In sleep my spirit llew
To gray and wind-swept grasses,
And moonlit sands, and you.

The faintest thought my soul breathes out

BY KATIE WILLIAMSON,
"Well sweetheart, here we are at
home." said Hurbert, "and now I will
have to leave you for a few moments
and go out and see how things have
been carried on in my absence.
Have a seat and when you have
warmed and restea you may lake a
peep into the cook-room and give any
directions 3*oll may wish to."
So saying, ne ktsse I rae and left
rae alone with my own thoughts for
the first time in several days. We
had been married only a week. I
had left all that I had known and
loyed from my earliest recollections
and come among strangers for Hu
bert's sake. This I had done will
ingly, for I loved him and kne v
that he loved me with all devotion -»f
which his gentle, noble na'ure wa
capable. I was a school teacher
when I met and learned to love Hu
bert and it was with many mis
givings that I had finally consented
to marry him. I knew that I was
; totally unfit for a farmer's wife, as I
had spent all m / time in the sch >0!
room and knew nothing of the prac
tical duties of life. However, the
last few months before our marriage
I had endeavored to learn something
of the duties upon which I was about
After resting a few moments I
went out into the cook-room and
looking around, as Hubert had sug
gested. Sal had commenced prepar
ing supper so I save no orders as I
was afraid I would b .stray my igtio
ranee. When supper was ove~ I
stayed 111 the dining room a few min
utes aud assisted Sal in cleaning
away the table. When she me
about breakfast I told her that she
uad prepared a very nice supper and
she eould get what she liked for
breakfast, and then I went in f o our
c >zy littler om. vhera I found Hubert.
"Well, sweetheart," he said, "how

"Y »u must wait awhile before ask
ing ma that. I haven't had tirat to
learn what they are yet; but I intend
to like them for your sake. I fear
that 1 have done you an injustice ir
consenting to marry you. You
could have married a nice girl who
has beeh accustomed to farm life,
and instead you have chosen an ig
norant "school inarm-"
Hubert laugh'ngly rep'ied, 'T call
that a contradiction of terms, but I
am perfectly contented with my ig
norant 'school inarm,' for I know
she can learn whatever she sets her
wise lutle bead to learn.''

"0, I mean to try so hard, darling
and if you will be patient with ma
perhaps I may learn to be a model
wife and housekeeper."
Then we talked of how we first met
and learned to love each nnd inda!?r

all young married people are wont to
At the end of the week, Sal, the
negro woman that Hurbert had, in
formed me that she had only been
employed for a week. I had also
learned that none of my neighbors
kept a cook, so I decided to under
take the cooking myself, witn the un
derstanding that Sal was to assist
me some every Saturday.
The first months of our married
life passed away like a happy dream.
T would often go to the giuhouse and
watch Hubert ginning cotton, a*iq;bt
of which I was never tired as I was
raised in a tobacco country. Some
times we would ride horseback over
the farm and Hubert would tell me
of hi 9 plans and how he hoped to
own ttie farm in a few years. He
had only made a small payment on it
then. I managed to get 011 nicely
with Lue housework, a fact which
greatly elated me. Hubert was lav
ish in his praises of my culinary
skill. Time passed rapidly and soon
the busy spring months were upon
us. It was then that the first clouds
came over our married life. Hu
bert informed me one night that he
had hired a negro boy and be would
begin work the next d-iy. so I could
prepare breakfast for hire. Although
I had never been accustomed to see
ing ladies do their own work I knew
it was J.e custom he-e bu had never
imagined that Hubert would expect
me to cook for "hands." I raid
nothing however and had the breaks
fast Already in due f'me the next
morning. As the farm work be-,
came more pressing Hubert was
away from me fr m sun up until sun
down only spending a short lime

I could bear, for my health was very
bad, to"> Hubert was always gentle
and kind, but naturally he was ab
sorbed in his work and I brooded
over ray cares and troubles, as I
termed them, until I grew sad and
silent. One day when I was more
sad and silent than usual Hubert
drew my head down on his shoulder
and said :
"Sweetheart married life is not
what you thought it would be; you
are disappointed, are you not?"
I did not answer in some time and
then I said:
"What makes you think I am dis
"Because you are so sad and quiet
so different from the gay, light heart

"I am not very well and you don't
know how tired I am sometimes,
darling," I sobbed out.
' Hadn't yoj belter have a cook for
awhile then?" he said.
Now none of my neighbors had
cok. I wanted to b.' cs smart as
they were, so I said: "No 1 will
try to do without one."
December carac around and it was
the anniversary of our wedding da}*.
I was seated in my room with my
little baoy girl. Mabel, in my arms.
Hubert came in and said:
"Katie wi have been married a
year today." —-
"Yes, I wa9 just thinking of it,"
I raplied. Then we reviewed the
past year together.
"I have fallen so far short of what
I expected to be, Hubert, and now
I am nothing but an expense to jou."
"How can you say that Katie*
You know li'e without you would be
dreary indeed for me, The year
that has just passed has been the hap
piestcf ray life. I could have em
p'oyed a cook or a washer-woman,
but not a wife such as you are."
his words comforted rae some but
I knew that 1 was :»t an expense to
him. I in very feeble health
and our darling little baby was so
delicate that we scarcely dared hope
that she would be spared to us. The
cotton crop Lad been a failure but

as I had been a year a;zo. I thonght
of the dreams I had indulged in be
fore marriage, when I picture 1 ray*
self as a farmers wife. I
dreams I imagined th%t I would have
a cook who would only need a fe*
directions from me to prepare a per*>
feet meal. I thought I would spend
my time in keeping the house in or*
der, looking after the chickens and
working in ray flowers. I always
pictured myself as possessing a
lovelv flower garden, for I was pass
ionately fond of flowers.
But alas! I thought what a con
trast between the anticipation and
realization. I only had a cook
when 1 was so weak that I could no
longer do the work, and I had no
flowers at all. Hubert had so often
impressed upon me the necessity for
us to practice the strictest economy
that I didn't dare ask him for money
to buy flowers. It always enbars
ressed me to ask him for money" for
any purpose. I had been accustomed
to having my own purse before mar
riage and now I felt its absence keen
ly. Hubert had said that I might
have all that I could muke on the
chickens and cow. 1 knew nothing
of the attention which uhould have
been bestowed upon them to make
them yield a surplus, and although I
had managed to have a sufficient
supply of chickens, eggs and butter
for our own use I had not sold any.
The second year of our married
lift passed away very much as the
first had done. I WHS very despond
ent and had often urged Hubert to
give up farming and try some other
occupation. This he wou'd not agiee
to, and I indulged in some very bit
ter thoughts because lie would not.
At the end of the third year t seemed
to me that matteis were growing
worse ins'ead of better. Owing to
bad erops and low p ices Hubert had
not been able to pay anything on his
land and bad also some other small
debts which he could i.ot discharge.
I had vis'ted my mother during the
summer months, and traveling ex
penses and the clothing for myself
self and babies, for we now uad two,
had taken a considerable sum. Now,
at the close of ihe year, I reproached
myse'f for spending so much, though
t; ;; rt did not reproach me. I
SO 1 v'O d that I would not spend s >
much again until we had discharged
some ot tbe debts which were weighs
ing so heavily upon rav husband.
Me was beginning to look careworn,
and although we were verv happy in
our little home, for our'baby-boy and
little gitl were a never-failing source
?»f pleasure to us both, I knew tnat
Hubert spent many wakeful hours
at night thinking of the future, which
looked so dark in a financial way.
However, we are resolved to redouble
our energies,and hoped that we would
be more successful during the next
year. I felt that I could aid Hubert
more than I hitherto had done. I had
learned to manage my share of the
work better. I had made a small
amount on my chickens, and as I had
increased my flock, I hoped to realize
a considerable sum from them in the
future. I had also resolved not to
spend a cent more than was posi
tively necessary. Lastly, I resolved
that I would endeavor to be a wife in
the highest sense of the word, sharing
in all m)* husband's toils and plans.
This I knew I had not done in the
past as fully as 1 should have done.
* * * *
Twelve years have passed awa3\
and it is the anniversary of our wed
ding day. It has been a happy
day for us. Seated at the »uppe r
table wi h our two boys and two girls
around us we presented a merry
group. Mabel and Annie set the ta'
ble; they also prep.'ired several dain
ty dishes without my assistance.
Papa and I were lavish in their
praises of their success.. Even little
two-.year old Hubert seemed to enter
into the spirit of the day.
Hubert presented roe with a piano
a tew months ago, and already the
children are learning to sing well.
So after supper we spe"t an hour or
two singing together, after which we
all united in prayer, and now tbe
children haye retired and Hubert and
I are left aione. We review our mar
ried life, as it has always been our
custom to do OD this day.
"Well, darling," Hubert says, "we
should be very thankful for the kind
Providence that ha* watched over
us and given us so many rich bless
ings; let us enumerate *ouneof them."

think of it."

"My wife," said he, "you deserve a

more praise than I do for it all; you

The Newman M. E. church is the
largest in the city of B'oomsbarre,
having over 8,000 members.
The Official is in session.
A very animated discussion is go
ing on over the withdrawal of twenty
ty-seven of the members of the
Dr. Williamson, the eloquent pas
tor, i« speaki' g.
"I admit that in point of numbers
twenty -seven out of over eight hun
dred would make bat very* little dif
ference, but see who the twenty seven
•are —the very ones who carry on our
prayer meetings, and attend to the
spiritual affairs of the church. It is
true that they are not the wealthy
part of our church, but a church can
not be run on rroney alone."
•'Brother Williamson," spoke up
the Hon, Charles Smith, a member
•if the Legislature, "I say let them
go; we will get along much better
without them. They have grown crazy
over the prohibition party, and right
here in our prayer meeting some of
them have growu so strong as to de
clare that any man who did not vote
iheir ticket was supporting the liquor
traffic. Now. I claim to be as good
a prohibitionist as any nran in !he
prohibition party, and, indeed, a bet
ter prohibitionist, for the reason that
I had the honor of voting for the ens
actment of our present high I,cense
law, which has done more for tem
perance than the prohibition party
will ever accomplish,"
Then Judge Grant, ons of the
county judges, spoke up: '-Gentle
raen, this recent discussion about the
church being the bulwark aad the
helper of the liquor traffic is noth
ing short of blasphemy, in calling
the faithful followers of ihe Lord
Jesus Christ the upholders *f the
rum traffic, the greatest curse ihe
word has ever seen. I agree witti
Brother Smith, let those prouibi'ion
cranks go in peace." [Applause from
ihe other members of the board.]
"Of course," said Dr. Williamson,
"we will have to give them their let
ters, for we can find uo fault with
their Christian character. But we
nave none to take their places in the
prayer service. This is one of the
evils of bringing politics into religs
ion; they won't mix. The old Repub
lican party is a good enough temper
ance party for rae, and while it is not
up to the standard on the temperance
question that I would' lik-? to see it,

"Gentlemen, knowing this to be

to come over and inform you that my

This speech was greeted with dumb

"No, sir, I am conducting a respect

should give it up."
"Wese-11. slowly said the Doctor,

taking in dealers in liquors, and for
that reason we must refuse you."
••Oh, said the saloon-keeper, a flush
of aneer coming into his florid face,
!"I was not aware of that. On
what ground does your cburch refuse
to admit saloon-keepers ?"
"On the ground that they are ens
gaged in a business that sends souls
to hell!" replied Dr. Williimson.
"The Bible says that no drunkard
shall inherit the Kingdom of God,
and those who make drunkards can>
not. More than that our Board of

The saloon-keeper was thoroughly
aroused by this time, and in suppress

that many of your members are cus

"I bave beard that somewhere,"
said Dr. Williamson.
"Do you know that two of this Offi>

No reply, but two very red faces
showed who bad beeu hit.
"Do you know that I got my IK

right here, for which I paid tbe

"Hold on !" exclaimed Judge Grant
excitedly, "you are going too fast, my

looked steadfastly on the floor, each
one seemingly afraid of breaking th«
silence. They were Christian men,
believed they were doing their Chris

his Gerce, truthful arraignment of
those present, had placed a heavy
responsibility on their shoulders.
Each one was doing some pretty
heavy thiuking when Dr Williamson
ended the silence by slowly saying:

fully and kindly says there are
many faithful workers.for the Saviour
who are not known far away from
home,but who are moving quietly for
the Master day after day. They are
not performing goods deeds to be
seen of men, but are working with a&
eye single to the glory of God.
They are noiseless forces in the king
dom of Christ. And are they not
sometimes the most powerful? If we
look about us, wo see that the
greatest forces work silently. As
has been beautifully expressed:
"How silently the sunbeams fall
all day long upon the Gelds and gar
dens, and yet what joy, what cheer
aud life they I II m silently
the flowers bloom, and yet what sweet
fragrance they emit! How silently
the stars move on their inujestie
marches around God's throne, and
yet they are suns of worlds ! How si
ently God's angels work, stoppi'ig
with noiseless tread through our
homes and performing ever their
blessed ministry about us! Who
bears the flutter of their wings or
the faintest whisper of their tongues?
And yet we know they hover over
us and move about us continually, *
In the same way Christ has many
earthly servants, moving about in a
quiet way, carrying rays of sunshine
and the sweet fragrance of a conse>
crated life, making others happy.
They are not recognized by the world
us being great orators or great work»
ers. but Christ has them recorded as
being among his most faithful ones.

Tbc horror and degradation pro*
duced by the drink traffic are not to
be measured by any ordinary calcq-%
lation of its first oost, nor are its
depredations to be judged only by
its effects on the business interests
of the community. Its awful results
are more injurious as a narcotic on
the moral sensibilities of the people;

anchor of our civilization is gone and
we drift into anarchy and despotism.
