BY AMY RANDOLPH.
'Is it snowing yet, Timothy V
Mrs. Trappe asked the qnestion
with a little shiver, as she spread
out her thin fingers over the blaze
of the wood-fire, whose cherry spires
of flame roared half. way np the
large old-fashioned chimney.
Timothy Trappe, her liege lord
and husband, had jast come in from
loddering his cattle a little brown
visaed man, with his mouth cus
rioasly twisted to onr? side, a hoary
stubble of unshorne beaid spronix
ing out upon his chin, and little
gray eyes sparkling from under
grizzled brows, as cold and hard as
pools of water.
44 'Snowing V ' he repeated sharp
ly. "I should think po ! Can't see
three inches afore ore's nose. Piled
up everywhere in drifts and cold as
Nova Zembla !"
He shook the snow from his
shoulders as he spoke, and settled
down into a cushioned eacbair
where the fire-light seemed at one j
fo enfold him as with a mantle of
warmth and brightness. j
"Oh, dear V said Mrs. Trappe, j
''What's the matter now V acidly
lemauded her better half. "Ain't

with a jnik.
"Alwayu a grumblin' about some

"Yes, but if Bessy"'

magisterially. "And if she wasn't,

home, hain't I? I've sent money to
pay ber way ; and I can't do more
than that, can I ?"
Mrs. Trappe, who was a lady of
constitutionally low spirits, sniffed
a faint negative.
"Then why can't you hold yonr
tongue?" demanded Mr. Trappe.
''Fetch a pitcher of cider and some
o' them doughnuts, and let's be

a piece out ot the first crisp and
fragrant doughnut before there

nobody to be out in !''
Grumbling under his breatb, be
crossed the narrow entry and labo
iriiusly unbolted the front door, with
difficulty opening it a few inches
against the drift of snow already
piled up in its angle.
"Well !'' said Mrs. Trappe, surlily.
"Bello, I say ! Who's there!'
At first, he could perceive noth
ing but the white, blinding wilder

night air, but as his eyes became
accustomed to the darkness he saw
a child's figure, wrapped in a coarse

'No !' said Timothy brusquely.
:We hain't nothin' for beggars !"
"But, please sir, my mother "'
"Oh !" snarled Timothy, screw

outlook info the darkness. "Your
mother is there, too, is she! Then
it's a clear cas o' tramps ! P'i'aps

bolts into their rusty sockets with a
grunt of satisfaction.

the lamp beamed a cheerful wel

breaking into a fresh blaze and re
seated himself, with the air of one
who has done a laudable thing.

''Of course, I have," snarled Tim

into actual ambition at last. "I do

"Well, let 'etn i" said Timo!by,
philosophically. "It ain't no busi

tened her nose against, the windows

"The cold chicken will warm np

itself with futile force against the
solid rock of the shore and relapsed
once more into silencj. But, per-,
haps who knows the impulse of
good which bad momentarily stirred
the s'uggish tides of her heart might
have counted for something in tho
yearly pages of the Recording An

The next morning, when Timothy
Trappe got up, the snow was piled
breast-high against the door, the
fences were all hidden and the out
houses seemed all to be floating in
a sea of white. The tempest was
over; the sun was feebly striding to
break through a waste of watery
clouds, and the wind was a? keen as

"Tiere rvas a woman found froze

"What of that !" said Trappe, re
coiling a little as he recollected the
child in the worn sea l.-t shawl and
the hair flowing over her face. "It'a
no business of mine.''
"Ic was your daughter, Ursy
Briggan, and her child."
"You're teil'ng me a lie!"' shout
ed Timothy Trappe, clutching at
the fencepost for support. "Y'on're
a-deceivin' of me ! D you suppose
I'm goin' to believe any such story
' Come and see for yourself,1' said
Jexon, pityingly. "A man who was
bringing a load of burels to the

And I knew her the miuute I set j
eyes on her.
"Jexon !" Trappe had clasped
his ruitteoed hands before his eyes.
"But it ain't true! It can't be! It
it was my Bessie, why didn't she
come to me to her own father?"
"Mau alive, you forget!'' said
Jexo', compassionately. "Iu such
a myht as last night there wasn't a
soul could make their way or teil
one point of the compass from an
other. And when your Besy wa
a girl, yon lived in the old stono-j
house by the cross roads, if you re
member. "True! True!;' Trappe spoke
faintly, like a man m a dream.
''Yes, I'll go with you, neighbor
Jexon, but it will b- a mere matter
of fcrm. My B ssy would never
cO'Tie h'-me here and perish in a
snmv-diift almost in sight ot her
father's house. There's a mistake
there must be !"
"And to think that it was our own
little grandchild as Timothy shut
the door upon !'' wai'ed Mr?i Trappe,
rockiug herself from side lo side.
"To think that he let Bessie die in
all the snow aud tempos', and us
sitting suug and warm by the fire!"
Aud she relapsed into sobs and
tears, while Timothy, sitting oppo
site, her, with a gray pallor on his
cheeks and lips set close together,
never stirred or spoke.
"His mind is a little touched, I
think," said neighbor Jexon, appre
hensively ; but Timothy turned and
looked him in the face.
"o," he said be ; "no, it ainfc ;
but I've a queer feeling heie,"
touching his forehead. "LikeI
fancy a dock must feel when its
machinery stops for good and all.'1
Timothy Trappe was stricken
down by paralysis that night, and
they buried him in a month.
And when the next snow fell, it
wove a cold and sparkling wrealh
over the old farmer's grave.

The government of children has
been a source of dissension in the
household since the world began,
and will be, presumably, till the
"new heaven and the new earth"
are produced. Chddren ought to
be an element of harmony in the
family, and to bring to the parents
united counsels and co-operative
love. In many ca?es this is the
happy result. Where it does not
produce this effect, it may be from
any of a variety of cause".
The mother, sometimes, has an
intense and excitable affection lor
ber children, which, when routed
up by anything that to her seems
like injury, takes on the form of a
tierce iustiuct, such as we see in the
lower animal kingdom.
Al other times, the mother feels
in an intense degree her special and
peculiar ownership in the child.
And truly the mother hap a right
that the father has not. She trav
ailed ; she bore it ; she suffered.
Chiefly upon ber lell the weariness,
the watching, the anxiety, the task
of early training aod instruction.
Her bfe is like a fountain poured
out for the child, ar-d whenever she
sees or fea's that ber long labor of
pa;n and patience is liable to be
perverted by the intrusion cf oue
who, thorgh fatber, and in law
made even superior to her In tb

Dots of moiai vendibility. A woman
may often press this right nnduly.
But no just and thoughtful man will
f:iil to recignizd a reason of justice
in a woman's claim to have much ot
the management of the children,
piovided she is really seeking their
Since, men do not as yet produce

over again, children must always be
a source of more or less trouble, in
convenience and annoianci in the
house. Both parents must take
their share ot the pat:ence inevita
bly required. Among other things,
children's noise most tie borne with.
They must not t?e too slruply curb
ed ; and yet, for their own good and
for the weifare of the familv, they
must not be lawless nor boisterous
withiu doors. Out-of-doors, aud in
play-rooms remote from hearing,
let them shout. It is good practice
for the lungs. But in or near the
common sitting-room they s'lonid
be trained to quietness. It is best
that they should early feel the ret
3ponsibility of contributing to the
common good. The household is a
little common-wealth. The child
is a new citizen. He must early be
taught the duties of citizenship. It
is an evil influence which permits
the child to sacrifice every person's
comtort in house for the selfish-sake
of its own enjoyment. It maybe
pleasant to the child for a moment,
but it sacrifices a higher good. A
chdd cannot learn too early: order,
subordination, obedience and a willing
contribution of it own pleasure for
the good of others. Ir restraint or
even descipliue be needed to secure
ihese results, it is best that the
child be subject to them. Health
ar d freedom mav be secured with
out allowing children to make nui
sdnces ot themselves.
Children untrained and boi-terous
invariably are objects of dislike to
all about :hom. They are the neigh
boihood talk, No parent by ueg
lect of discipline has a right to sub
ject his child to so mnch odium.
We take sides with the parent who
desires an oiderly family ; where
children are not vexatious despots :
where a man may feel reasonably
safe from an irruption of bears and
bnffnloes in human form; and where
the sharp, irritable selfishness of
over-indulged children should rot
be his daily portion. N. Y. Ledger-

The rapid growth of the League
for good roads since it was formed
by Gu. Roy Stone and his associ
ates is the best proof that there was
a need for its formation, and that
there is a widespread and deep
public interest in the beneficent re
form ' which it has undertaken to
promote. There are already branch
es of it in a majority of the States
and in hundreds of counties ; it has
already prompted several of tbee
branches to begin the work of road
improvement; it has secured the
co-operation of sundry influential
agencies which have never before
acted together; piles of letters of
inquiry are received at the office of
its secretary, and its expences have
been covered by voluntary sub
scriptions. It is the purpose of the League to
influence the State and connty au
thorifcies in the matter of road re
form, so that desirable laws npon
thei subject may be adopted by the
j legislatures of the several States
j Its method of procedure is yet to be
drawu us. It must, aDove all,
s;rive to secure the adoption ol
systematic and economical measures
of legislation. The expenditures
j including the cost of labor, in road-
making by local bodies are enor

Hawaii is knocking for admission
to Uncle Sam's family circle or at
least her to.'ninant, intelligent,
wealthy, business men, mostly Am
ericans, ;ire seeking his protection.
There is no clear unanimity of opin
ion as to what shall be done with
the request". Some think we have
territory and un assimilated popu
lation enough aud are opposed to
the acquisition of more territory
and particularly that 2,500 miles
away and peopled by Kanakas,
Chinese aGd Japanese who say they
are unfit to form a state or even to
manage a territorial government.
On the other hand it is said that the
natives are intelligent Christians
capable of selUgovernment ; that
we have encouraged our countrymen
to develop the wealth of the island
aud iuvest their monev that we owe
them protection ; that we. caa do
there what England does in one
way or another around the globe,'
and what England may do in Ha
waii if we do not. Further tfeey
say we need a station in the Pacific,
and also a station in the West In
dies for the defense ot a ship canal
across Central America and tbat we
need the latter for the mutual de
fense of our eastern and western
coast. We need these to break the
fortified circle which England is
building around ns and which she
would be pleased to complete with
Hawaii. Some assert ic to be oor
destiny to absorb all the territory
between the Arctic and the Carib
bean seas. As for the mode of gOT
ernment if the territorial form is oot
suitable, govern Hawaii by a com
mission. The District of Columbia,
without a legislature, without a
governor and without & voice affords
i an example: Let us, it is said, be
gin to resist the tightening band of
England's circle of fortifications by
taking Hawaii. Make it a Gibraltar
ot the Pacific. The New York Her
aid, 'Inbune, Sun, limes, and Press
sap "open the door to Hawaii."
The Indian Territory is probably
more difficult to manage in some
respects than Hawaii would be.
