There never was a day so long
It did not have an end ;
There nerer was a man so poor
lie did not have a friend ;
And when the long day finds an end
It brings the time of rest, '
And he who has one steadfast friend
Should count himself as-blest.
There never was a cloud that had
The sunlight all from sight;
There nerer was a life so sad
It had not some delight.
Perchance for us the sun at last.
May break the dark cloud thtough, -Aud
life may hold a happiness
r That nevcr yet it kuew. "
So let's not be discouraged, friend,
When the shadows cross our way.
Of trust and hope I've some to lend;
So borrow from me, pray,
(iood friends are we, therefore not-poor,
Though worldly wealth we luck.
Behold, the sun shines forth at last,
And drives the dark clouds back !

In the Land of Homes.
One good thing, if no other, always
comes to us out of winter life, aud
that is the charm concentrated in a
manner that we are hardly able to
feel in all the delights of out-door sum
mer day. . As darkness gives us the
the freedom of the stars and all the
depths of space, while sunshine shuts
us in on our one little planet walled
about the blue sky, so summer gives
us an openness of life that is widening
very likely to the spirit in many ways,
and certainly on the plane of nature
and the beauty of earth and sea and
sky. But winter shuts us in upon our
selves and each other, deepens our love
for it, and especially our family love
and our -reverence for homes.
The land where home is the thing

qualify of the homes is most apparent,
always a land where winter predom-
atea. Not that homes do not exist
and are not dearly valued in southern
countries; hut where one can live as
easily in all outdoors as undera roof,
the use of the four walls is not so evi
dent aud insistent. Undoubtedly there
is as much family affection in one lati
tude as in another; indeed, it seems
sometimes stronger in the wanner lati
tudes, as the control aud repression of
opinion is apt to be less there, aud even
in take ou a. more lively way or demon
strating itself there, family feuds and
vendettas being affairs of tropic fre
quency. The traveller whose train takes him
through' villages of northern countries
and through the suburbs of great citks
in the same portions of the globe, will,
as a general thing, be unable to- look
out of the window without noting the
pains and pride taken in the homes?, as
the neat appearance of countless small
house and the small grounds about
them testify cleanly, orderly, trim,
well-painled, well-fenced, tastefully
planted, aud being plainly the thing
on which the owners hearts are fixed.

1 wo-thirds of the year are spent le- 1
hind the doors of these homes; and of
course the virtues that belong to life
spent closely and with these who are
dear have every opportunity for devel
opment; if there are any vices spring
ing from such a life, we should hardly
know how to classify-them. . There is,
indeed, a liability to family selfishness,
an exclusive regard for one's own, in
this sort of life, a possible forgetful
uess and heedlessness for others, as
light carried to too intense a pitch
beedmes darkness, the eye being blind
ed. But even this is possible to hut
few natures, for the fact of one's own
excess of happiness inclines most or. us
to pity others and to care for their
we fare. It is around the hearth and
about the cveninir lamp that a great
deal of the added sense of home is gen-
erated and its value felt; there, with
he books, the reviews, the newspapers.

A respectable portion of people in
this couutry, especially among
learned physcians, have af late had a
good deal to say ou the subject of bury
ing the dead, us practiced in this and
nearly all other civilized countries.
the most interesting, because the most
exhaustive, treaties we have seen on
the subject, is a pamphlet reprint from
The Sanitarian by liev. Chas. B. Feat,
of New York citv. It sets out with a
review of the various methods which
have been practiced in the world for
disposing of the dead. There are cre
mation, burial in the ground, burial in
the sea, exposing the bodies to be torn
f .- "t 1 .a .iil l fi ir 11. l l..r 1 .... J
beasts, and entombment. Of these
various methods, after a patient review
of them all. the writer se ties down on
entombment as the safest, and in all re-
pects, the best and the cheapest, method
of disposing of the dead. The safest
and the best for the living: for he
mentions many facts going to show
how the common practice of burying
in the ground may affect the health
of the living by poisoning the atmos
phere we breath, and the waters we
drink. It requires little knowledge
and reflection to see in thee sources
possible dangers to the health of the
ing; and the more we think about
it the more, apparent those
force themselves upon the mind.
The writer then proceeds to show
that entombment is the best and only
method to obviate objectionable causes
encountered in the other methods al
luded to. And one fact adduced on
this branch of his subject will certain
ly arrest the favorable consideration
of every reader, and that is,4hat tombs
may easily be so constructed as to ar
rest the decomposition of bodies, and
preserve them intact for an indetiuite
npr (n1 or time
This most desirable
result id obtainable by extracting all
miosture of the atmosphere of the
chamber in which the bodies are laid.
In proof of this, numerous instances
are cited to show how dead bodies of
men and other animals have been
fouud in caves, ancient tombs, and
even on the tops of mountains, where
the atmosphere condition was favor
able, free from desication, looking
just as when 4 death came to them.
Thus, it would appear, that decompo
sition can be controlled, and that its
ioatl,SOme and unwholesome
mation can be prevented, if only the

then thrown out of cultivation, the
pines take possession of it and nature
takes up the work of restoring its fer-
tility, but we can t afford to wait for na-
ture in this country ? Nature has all
time before her to do her work in, man
has only a few short years in which to
do his work, so he has to shorten the
time as much as possible by growing
peas and oats and applying manure,
heavy doses of it too, until he brings
his laud up again. 1 have heard in-
telligcnt men and good farmers too
say, and in fact at one time I thought
as thev did. "It is necessary for me
to find out what my land is lacking in
and then supply that want to put oil

Alas! nature will not yield up her
secret, or rather man has not yet been
i t it i i mi
able to g:nn that knowledge. me
truth is that soil analysis is practi
cally worthless to the fanner. Al
though the tiller of the soil has
been digging and delving for some
six thousand years; although cnemi-
lcal auu vsis has been, and sull is
day by d;y getting a little nearer, a lit-
lle closer to the-goal, vet it ti!l re-
maius a secret. The farmer must and
can by the aid of the chemist, ascer
tain of what Lis crop i composed,
whether it be corn, cotton or tobacco,
that is to say he can ascertain how
much potash, lime, phosphoric arid,
etc., there is in the make-up of his
frou. He will then have a liettei1 idea
of what he needs to make a food ryliich

note of it all is this, manure, more

A Pleasing Proposition and a Golden
We are constantly in receipt of pro
positions from various parts of the
country to do advertising and take pay
in the article advertised, first remitting
a certain amount of cash to cover the
difference between the woith of the
article and the worth of the space. If
it nad been practicable to have accept
ed all of these propositions that hare
been submitted within the past ten
years, we would now hare har on hand
a large and varied assortment of sew
ing machines, organs, liver medicines,
dog carts, corn-ahellers, boneset bitters,
reapers, hay-rakes, hen peauaders, f ru it
accenting the nrnnritmni it h o

for in each case was about the worth
of the article and m bv the lack f

nection with a ireneral nublisbintr anH

diana a proposition which we would
certainly accept but for the stringency
ot the time. It is to advertise a soda
fountain, worth $80 if it is worth a
cent, pay $50 in advertising and 124

fountains. What could be fairer than

of a glass of

ber, two glasses to every delinquent
who paid up in full and three to every
one who paid in full and for a year in
advance! Y hv, people would fall over
one another in their efforts to avail
themselves of these unparalleled in
ducements and presently the Land-
mark would have a boom. We would
have this whole country belching car-
bonic acid gas and the air would be

wouldn't it? Hold a bit; you haven't
heard it all: This is a portable soda
fountain. After all the material here
had been worked up, we could take
this extraordinary fountain (never gets
out of order) to Tavlorsvilfe, Wilkes-
boro, Yadkiuville, Mocksville. Newton.
Morgauton, Jefferson, Boone, Sparta,
and to Salisbury and Charlotte if time

We would regret to panic the soda

Messrs. Charlie Prouest. Jim Cox aud
Bill Phipher are friends of ours aud
handle soda water themselves; but bus
iness is business, and if they can't af
ford to give it way for the sake -of

their misfortune. With the scruples
as to these friends stined, we see uoth-

necessary to make the cash payment

Danger of Acquiring the Morphine
Professor Dniardin Beaumentz, of
Paris, France, in a recent lecture at
the Cochin Hospital, l'aris, on the
treament of nervous diseases, said": I
need not here speak of the advantages
and dangers of morphine. I have
manv times discussed this subject,
showing that if morphine is an ad
mirable analgesic medicament, it is also
the most dangerous ot all uy
reason of the fact that the patient be
comes accustomed to and dependent ou
the morphine injections, and ends in
becoming a niorphiomaniac.
It may be affirmed that morphionaa
nia has become one of the vices of the
day, and we almost lay it down as a
rule that any patient who for thirty
consecutive days takes morphine in-
Li on)jnie habit, even when the

will henceforth "lie a matter of no lit

habit, now become a disease more re-
bullions than the affection for which
these injections were first ordered.
The number of morphiotuaiiiacs in
creases every day, and this deplorable
vice exists in aif classes of society.
Unfortunately, our own profession is
not exempt from this abuse, and I kuow

The Shepherd's Dof-A Lost Child.
A shepherd who inhabited one of
those valleys or glens which intersect
the Grampian Mountains, in one of
his excursions to look after his flock,
happened to carry along with him one
of his children, a boy three years old.
This is not unusual practice among the
Highlanders, who accustom their chil
dren, from the earliest infancv. to en
dure the rigors of the climate. After
traversing his pastures for some time,
attended by his dog, the shepherd
found himself under the necessity of
ascending a summit at some distance,
t-5 have a more extensive view of his
range. As the ascent was too fatiguing
for the child, he left him on a small
plain at the bottom with strict injunc
tions not to stir from it till his return.
Scarcely, however, had he gained the
summit, when the horizon was dark
ened by one of those impenetrable
mists which frequently descend so
rapidly amidst these mountains, as, in
the spjice of a few minutes, almost to
turn day to night.
The anxious father instantly hasten
ed back to find his child, but, to hi
own intrepidation, unfortunately miss
ed his way in the descent. After a
fruitless search for many hours, he dis
covered that he had reached the bot
tom of the valley, and wasnear his
own cottage. To renew the search
that night was equally fruitless and
dangerous; he was therefore compelled
to go home, although he had lost both
his child and his dog, who had attend
ed him faithfully so manv years
Next morning, by break of day, the
shepherd, accompanied by a band of his
neighbors, set out in search of his
child; but after a day spent in fruitless
fatigue, he was at last compelled to
descend from the mountains. On his
returning home, he found that bis dog.
which he bad lost the day before, had
. i j a . rr
of cake, had gone off again, ror
i .i P . j
several successive days the shepherd re-
i i l i l i j j
uewed his search, for his child, and
. . i j. . . j
been home, ana on receivmg a piece
of cake, had gone off again. For
still, on returning home disappointed
in the evening, he found that the dog
bad been home, and on receiving his
usual allowance of cake, had instantly
disappeared. Struck with these singu
lar circumstances, he remained at home
J J 1 1
one day and when the dog, as asual,
departed with his usual piece of cake,

How frequently the inquiry as to
he cause of a fire is followed by the
answer, "defective 'chimner." The
propot'on of conflagrations bus started
4s very large and of course there is a
reason far it. Why should chimneys
be defective? Above all other parts of
a building they should be constructed
with especial carb, for njon their per
fection depends not only the happi
ness of a sinele famiiv. whose hoiao is
there all, but the' welfare of thousands.
and the safety of human life.
Ihe maintenance of large fires inside
of i nflammhle-"riabitations, though so
familiar as to be seldom thought of as
such, is certainly not the least of the
many risks and dangers to which
humanity must necessarily be subject
ed. It is to be expected that advanc
ing civilization is constantly lessening
these dangers to a minimum. ihe
car stove is going and all methods of
locomotion are continually undergoing
improvement. The defective chimney
has been with us long enough'
When bricks are burnt there are
ways more or less on the outside and
ends of the pile that do not receive
sufficient heat. They are only half
burned. They are called soft brick.
Being inferior in quality they are of
course cheaper, and too many of them
find their way . into the chimneys,
whether the result of the mason's cu
pidity or the owner's foolishness, var
ies in different instances. These soft
bricks are subjected to heat during the
day time; as night comes on the fires
go down and so does the mercury, per
haps way below zero. The cheap
bricks begin to crack and crumble. A
little rain or melted snow gets into the
cracks and freezes. Before very long
