Thk old ballad siiys, "Spring 
would be but glooni\- weather if 
we had nothing else but spring.'' 
Yet what is brighter than the 
sunshine of an ever - cheerful 
spirit ? Who more blest than the 
gi\er of pleasant words and 
kindly^ looks? Not the insipid 
inanities of an existence witliout 
an object — of a nature too indo- 
lent to get ruffled. Not this, but 
the influence of a strong 4i^ivid- 
uality diffusing itself among 
others, and gilding the passing 
hour with a genial glow. A 
mother of many daughters was 

wont to say, "(iirls, cultivate 
cheerfulness; it will stand \ou 
in baud through all your life." 
A wise father's injunction \v 
"Kind words cost nothing-; do 
not grudge them, esj)ecially to 
your social inferiors." Again, 
"Take the world as you find it; 

Prof.Dillenbeck, Prof.Newman

Charity Directory. 

The Charity Organization gave 
a court-day dinner, which netted 
$50. Donations to this charity, 
not including the dinner, have 
lately been as follows: Mrs. H. 
H.White, flour; Mrs. Roe Mock- 
er, flour; Mr. H. W. White, 
sugar; Mrs. Bartholomew, oat- 
meal; Mrs. Dudley Logan, sugar; 
Mrs. Mary Scott, soap; Mrs. 
John S. Shouse,- clothing and 
soap ; l\Irs. John Moore, clothing 
and coffee ; Mrs. Skinner, pota- 
toes ; Mrs. John Pew, tomatoes ; 
Mrs. Margaret Lawrence, sugar ; 
Mrs. Helen Milligan, flour ; Mrs. 
Dr. Coleman, sugar ; Mrs. C. C. 
Cline, preserves, clothing, jelly ; 
Mrs. Mary HoUiday, preserves ; 

you cannot mould people to suit 
your ideas. Give them credit 
for meaning as well as you do." 
An unerring test of a yoimg 
girl's choice of books is to read 
nothing that she would blush to 
read aloud to a gentleman friend. 
The hero of "The Initials" is 
made to give this advice to Hil- 
degarde. Just so in our social 
commingling it were well if we 
did not ever say of another what 
we would leave unsaid were that 
other within earshot. Be cheer- 
ful and you will never feel cross. 
Before the mighty power of a 
happy, buoyant spirit fly the le- 
gions of envy, hatred and malice 
and all uncharitableness. The 
shining sun of the heavens dis- 
pels the miasma of the marshy 
vallics. The sun of cheerfulness 
scatters the mists that lie deep 
down in the darkened soul of 
discontent and unrest. 

Mrs. Joe Scott, oatmeal; Miss 
Jessie Bean, dress; Mrs. Clay 
Calvert, clothing and soap ; Mrs. 
John Yellman, dresss ; Mrs. Dr. 
Logan, vegetables ; Mrs. Mary 
Irvine, oatmeal ; Mrs. Walker 
Muir, clothing. There are thir- 
teen children now in the institu-

The Best Time 

"Was vour elopement a suc-

us not to return and all would

To work, while you can; to 
sow wild oats, never; to sing, 
when you feel like it; to laugh, 
is when you can afford to. The 
best time to think is befi)re you

good resolution is when wm in-

is when you are in the same

Deeds and Kind Hearts. 

May, 1891. 

Dear Frikxds : 

There is not a trace of winter 
in onr fresh green landscape, 
and naught but the springtime 
of affectionate interest in luv 
heart for you and the good that 
you are doing. Here, there, eve- 
rywhere, is inserted the point of 
the truest lever that ever moved 
a world — that of single-hearted, 
well-intentioned effort for suffer- 
ing men and women. Clean and 
white looms up the 


with its red brick annex all 
ready for the interior adorning. 
Day by day the sick and wound- 
ed are carried in. Day by day 
the White Cross nurses go out 
to the sick beds of those who 
cannot come in. A pleasant fea- 
ture in the management is the 
invitation to the families of min- 
isters of the gospel to come and 
be healed without money and 
without price. '5 It is not all of 
life to live, nor all of death to 
die." And the nurses may go to 
these families free of charge. 

The Bible Society sent six Bi- 
bles. Mr. Johns, the druggist, 
who has shown such substantial 
interest from the first, sent a 
complimentary ticket for twen- 
ty-four glasses of soda water, a 
gift doubly acceptable in the 
sudden rush of hot weather 
while yet the body was swathed 
in winter flannel. The Phoenix 
Hotel has been munificent in 
contributions. The list reads, 
three venison roasts, lamb roast, 
and three roasts of mutton. 
The daily Transcript and Press 
give the world's doings to the 
secluded band. Mrs. Sara Allen 
sent sweet milk and buttermilk 
twice, and four glasses of jellv- 
vShe also gave a vine for the new 
building and two plants. Ladies 
of the Charity ball sent ice- 
cream and a collection of dishes 
— 26 coffee-cups, i saucer, 5 , 
plates, 2 dishes, 5, fruit saucers. 
Mrs. ]\Iaria I)u(lle\- sent bread 
and jelly and the Churchman. 
Mrs. Johnson .sent a .sack of fruit. 
Mrs. Virginia Gorton gave two 
numbers of the Churchman. 
Mrs. Spottswood sent two large 
buckets of cucumber pickles, a 
relish so necessary to the table. 
Mrs. Daniel Swigert's gifts this 
month have been costly and gen- 
erous. She gave a walnut cen- 
ter table with marble top, one 
walnut washstand and two Brus- 
;sels rugs. Now is the time for 
gifts of furniture, as nine new, 
sweet, fresh rooms stand ready 
to be clothed. Mrs. Dr. Talbott 
sent a large "tray of beautiful 

roses, lilies and smilax. Bell, 
the florist, made his monthly do- 
nation of exqtiisite flowers in 
great variety. 

Several donors of bundles . of 
papers are not recorded by name, 
yet these are most useful contri- 
butions for reading- and for house- 

so he was sent to a house of cor- 
rection. The old ladies were 
without pets this time. Dick 
was dead, Flip disgraced, and 
Biddy farming- out with her 
young brood, who threatened to 
make havoc of Matron Marv's 
lovelv flowers. And her flowers 

hold uses. Miss Virginia Johns j this season arc going to be unu- 
sent light rolls and flowers. ^Irs. ' sually lu.xuriant. The beds and 



asparagus, that ; walks of the little garden are all 
refreshing bit of an early spring ; weeded and clean, and the rich 

soil is ready for bloom.

some of them are, oh! so infirm. 



From the Charity ball the 

and this 

are the large, airy rooms for the 
]\Ir. i pay patients. The lower wards 
are open to visitors. In that for 
men there were four deaths re- 
cently. In the colored wards 
there is an olive-skinned, briglit- 
ejed boy, who was found in a 
negro cabin, his lower limbs act- 
ually gangreened from neglect. 
Both legs were to be amputated 
below the knee, and the little 
fellow sat in his pure white 
wrapper, with a friendly sheet 
screening the diseased members, 
and anxiously awaited the oper- 
ation, so eager was he to get rid 
of "tlie body of this death." 
Doubtless he will not survive the 
ordeal, for he is fearfully wasted. 
Sister Euphrasia, one of God's 
ministering earth angels, patient- 
ly escorted us through the insti- 
tution, explaining and describing 
with rare intelligence. Her in- 
jured hand (from her fall last 
year) does not regain its useful- 
ness, but it is a genuine ])leasure 
to look into her face and behold 
the good that is written there. 


amount was S952.25, 

generous sum will no doubt be ; so hopelessly afflicted ! U])stairs 
increase to $1,000 b\- several 
friends of the Infirmary 
Henry Read sent in 5 100. One 
of the most touching gifts was , 
the donation of the lot adjoin- 
ing the Infirmary by Mrs. Maria 
Dudley, in loving memory of her 
husband, who was one of Ken- 
tucky's first citizens and sur- 


How clean and - spotless was 
everything about the old ladies 
at my last visit ! Aunt Patsy 
and Mother Steele sat with folded 
hands because there were no 
more rags to sew, and oh, how 
they chafed at the enforced idle- 
ness ! " Who is this ? " I asked, 
bending over the blind face. " I 
know you," she said, " I always 
know your voice ; " and she 
called my name and bade me 
welcome. Aunt Patsy clasped 
both my hands when 1 told her 
that Mrs. Fitzhugh, a kind lady 
who never failed to send the 
right things to the right place, 

would send her some rags. "Yes, 

Aunt Patsy, she read about you 

in the Record, and she has a 

bag full." "That's right. Tell 

her to send 'em along. Mrs. 

Winston and Mrs. h'elix sent the 

last. You know I nnist have 

different colors. I can't wind 

up all of a kind in one place. It 

takes a pound and a half to the 

\ ard and forty yards to a carpet." 

\Yhen I moved away she said, 

" Come again, come every week." 
M()Tiii;u CRnxi.iacH 

was in the next room, and at 
last she acknowledges that the 
foot is no better. I used all the 
arguments I knew to convince 
her the diseased Ixme nuist come 
out, and truly seemed willing. 
Gentle, inoffensive, child-like 
Mother Cronleigh ! Several oth- 
ers were shaking my hands, and 
now Aunt Amy appeared at the 
door of the clean, shining kitch- 
en and said, " The sight of you 
is good for the sore eyes," while 
in her rear loomed up two more 
smiling faces. Pardon me, friends, 
if I tell of these pleasant visits, 
where merely a smile and a 
cheerful word win such gratitude. 
Poor, bad, curly-coated Flip had 
to be given away. His manners 
did not improve, and he had no 
respect for his motherly friends, 

"Time never hangs heavily. 
Our days ' are filled with work, 

and our evenings are spent in 
reading from the Youth's Com- 
panion and books contributed by 
friends, or in telling stories cal- 
culated to implant a moral tone. 
Let me give you a little incident. 
A week ago one of our little girls 
was sent to the post-office for 
stamps, wdien she saw a man 
drop a bill from his purse. Pick- 
ing it up, she hastened to restore 
it. He took it, and only said, 
"Thanks;" but it shows the 
spirit of honesty. We teach 
them, " Thou, Ciod, seest me. 

" You will be pleased to know 
we have a vegetable garden and 
a flower garden, too. The chil- 
dren delight in working these, 
and are longing for vacation to 
get at it. Our venerable mother, 
now seventy-one, loves flowers 
with a passion, and the litle ones 
take pride in bringing bunches 
to her." [And here the writer 
indulges in a beautiful eiilogy of 
Mother Albrecht.— Ed.] "We 
have received a valuable gift in 
the shape of a refrigerator from 
our dear friend, Mr. Ephraim 
Sayre." She concludes with the 
following list of 


S. Bassett & Sons, a lot of bed- 
room .slippers. Hector Hillen- 
meyer, fifteen trees. P'roni J. T. 
Miller, a garden spade and rake, 
Louis Ramsey, a ham. Henry 
Vogt, barrel of crackers and gar- 
den seeds. Mrs. vSara ] . Cronly, 
85.50 for decorating windows. 
Mrs. John Scott, a bundle of use- 
ful clothing. De Ivong Bros., 
garden seeds. Mrs. N.W. Muir, 
sack of potatoes. vSidney Clay, 
Shows the late re])airs, and! bushel of fine pop-corn. Cane 

gleams bright and inviting in the 

crisp April air. Good Mother 

Albrecht was full of talk about 

her children. She had discharged 

her alien cook, who required such 

unceasing surveillance, and had 

one of her eldest girls cooking 

for a salary. " So much better," 

she said, and I thought so, too.

"There they are, over in the

and work;" and little Marjorie 
stood gazing at the gronp of 
merry girls and boys with tears 
in her big brown eyes. 

"How pretty their dresses, and 
and mine is all dirty and faded;" 
and she looked down at her froek 
with shame. "I had pretty cnrls 
too, and now they are all done 
up like this;" and she jerked the 
long braids as if she wonld tear 
them from her head.

Marjorie stayed by her and 
read the Bible to her and gave 
her nice things to eat. Thus 
she returned good for evil. And 
when Aliss Hannah died tliev

This was all she could do to 
show how sorry she was for her 
treatment of the orphan child. 
But Marjorie .said: "What

An Ancient Manuscript. 

A Beautiful Gift. 

The Cat ThermcHneter. 

This was found in an ancient 
manuscript, sent by Publius Len- 
tulus, president of Judea, to the 

Roman Senate : 

"There lives at this time in 
Judea a man of singular charac- 
ter, whose name is Jesus Christ. 
The barbarians esteem him as a 
prophet, but his followers adore 
him as the immediate offspring 
of God. He is endowed with un- 
paralleled virtues so as to be able 
to call back the dead from their 
graves, and to heal every kind 
of disease with a word or touch. 
His person is tall and elegantly 
shaped, his aspect amiable and 
reverend. His hair flows in those 
beautiful shades which no united 
colors can match, falling in 
graceful curls below the ears, 
agreeably touching on his shoul- 
ders and parting on the crown* 
of his head like the head-dress 
of the sect called Nazarites. His 
forehead is smooth and his 
cheeks without a spot, save that 
of a lovely red. His nose and 
mouth are formed with exquisite 
symmetry; his beard is thick 
and suited to the hair of his 
head, reaching a little below his 
chin and parting in the middle 
like a fork. His eves arc 1)right, 
clear and serene. lie rebukes 
with majesty and counsels with 
persuasive language, his whole 
address, whether in word or 
deed, being elegant, grave and 
characteristic of so exalted a 
being. No man has seen him 
laugh, but all Judea has fre- 
quently seen him weep, and so 
persuasive are his tears that the 
multitude are unable to restrain 
theirs troni mingling with his. 
He is modest, temperate and 
wise. Whatever this phenome- 
non may be in the end, he now 
seems to be a man of strange 
beauty and divine perfection, in 
every way surpassing the chil- 
dren of men." 

Mrs. Mary K. Irvine, of South 
Broadway, presented to Eugenia 
D. Denny an elegant Bagster 
Bible, in token of ner apprecia- 
tion of the government position 
procured for her son, Berkley, 
through the recommendation of 
Judge Denny. In addition to 
this claim there has existed for 
years the tender tie of a pupil 
and her first teacher between the 
giber and the receiver. An illu- 
minated card, showing an open 
Bible, bore on the reverse side 
the words, "May the rich gems 
contained in this precious vol- 
ume be sought and found by my 
dear young friend. May the 
promised stars of comfort shine 
brightly in your heart. iVIay the 
wisdom given liberally to those 
who ask for it be added, and the 
peace that passeth understand- 
ing fill your heart to overflow- 
ing. The wish of one who loves 
you truly." 

Surelv so tender a message of 
love belongs to the pages of the 
Record, and we hope we do not 
need to ask pardon for putting 
it into print without permission.

Mrs. Sallio F. C laiiin, of Soiitli Caro-

at least, in rospoiise to lu-i- efforts, haa 
passed a bill to fouud an industrial 
school for girls. Gov. Tillman recom- 
mended this in his Uiessage, and his 
wife, who is a leadiup; temperance 
woman, Is taking a great interest in the 
project. A law has also been adopted 
forbiddloK the sale of tobacco to minors 
under a heavy pcna ty. A W. C. T. U. 
Home has been opened in Charleston 
which furnishes Rood lodging at a low 
rate; a cheery room to sit in at night; 
and a (^ood lunch room intended as a 
substitute for the bar, where hot coffee 
is sprvod at ten o'cloc'v at night in the 
effort to keep young m^n out of saloons 
and keep reporters from temptation. 
One of the best city physicians has an 
office in the building, and gives free 
treatment one hour every day in what 
ho calls a medical missidn. Ouo gentle- 
man told Mrs. Chapin he would give her 
fifty dollars to buy a gas cooking-stove 
if she would drop that disgusting word 
"temperance" out of the name, but she 
said that if she were on a compromising 
line she could make a far better trade 
by going in with the saloon keepers, 
who would not only jrlve her a stove, 
but plenty of material to cook, and 
plenty of patronage. Mrs. Chapin is 
one of the national organizers of the 
W. C. T. U., and will spend the winter 
in the Sov^w.
