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,

This superb entertainment was
brought within reach of the In-
firmary treasury by the efforts of
Mrs. Albert Harden, and is under
the leadership of Prof. H. T.
Speedy, of Detroit, Mich. There
are sixteen dances, including the
(irand Finale, and 175 ])ersous
engaged either as dancers or
chaperones. Xext Thursday,
I'riday and vSaturday are the

justly running at its higlicst.

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-

you cannot mould people to suit
your ideas. Give them credit

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.

Deeds and Kind Hearts.
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
Several donors of bundles . of

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

there about i^o patients, and
some of them are, oh! so infirm.
From the Charity ball the
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.

THE HOME OF THE FRIENDLESS.
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."

" Come again, come every week."
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.

Albrecht was full of talk about
her children. She had discharged

one of her eldest girls cooking

she said, and I thought so, too.

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
