His eyes are some- ! }X hits Hollse - Th e old man's face was with the story ur.iil almca long enough to leave ihe marks of their c!aw on forehead and cheek and temple. His long beard snows down what dim. and he can see farther when they are closed than when they are open, for he can sec clear back into the time when beautiful Rachel, his was living, and his children ok the Oriental abode with their Jcerriment. Tee centenarian is sitting dreaming orer tie past -when he hears a wagon rcinblSng to the front door. He gets tip and goes to the door to see who has arrived, and his long absent sons from Egypt come in and announce to him that Joseph, instead of being dead, is living in an Egyptian palace, with all the investiture of prime minister, next to the king in the mightiest empire of all the world! The news was too sudden and too glad for the old man. and hie cheeks whiten, and he has a dazed look, and his staff falls out of his hand, and he would have dropped had not the sons caught him and led him to a lounge and put cold water on his face, and fanned him a little. In that half delirium the old man mumbles something about his son Joseph. He says: "You don't mean Joseph, do you? my dear son who has been dead so long? You don't mean Joseph, do you?" But after they had fully resuscitated him, and the news was confirmed, the tears began their •winding way Jown the crossroads of the wrinkles, and the sunken lips of the old man quiver, and he brings his bent fingers together as he says: "Joseph is yet alfve. I will go and see him before I die." It did not talre the old man a great while to get ready, I warrant you. lie put on his best clothes that the shepherd's wardrobe could afford. He got into the wagon, and though tho aged are cautious and like to ride slow, the wagon did not get along fast enough for this old man; aud when tho wagon with the old man met Joseph's chariot coming down to meet him, and Joseph got out of the chariot and got into th .wagon ar.d threw his arms around hi father's neck, it was an antithesis a royalty and rusticity, of simplicity an< pomp, of filial affection and paternn love, which leaves us so much iu doi:, 1 ) whether we had better laugh or crj that we do both. So Jacob kept th resolution of tho text—"I will go am eee him before I die." What a strong and unfailing thing is paternal attachment! Was it not al most time for Jacob to forget Joseph' The hot suns of many summers had ' blazed on the heath; the river Nile hac overflowed and receded, overflowed am receded again and again; the seed ha( been sown and the harvests reaped Btars rose and set; years of plenty and years of famine had passed on; bul the love of Jacob for Joseph in my texl is overwhelmingly dramatic. Oh, thai is a.cord that is not snapped, though pulled on by many decades. Though •when the little child expired the parent may not have been more than twenty-five years of age, and now they are seventy-five, yet the vision of the Sj-adle, and the childish fsce. and the utterances of the infantile lips are «., 4 1_ --- ----- ei he ravens of the valley shall pick -, -. -, out and the young eagles shall eat Oak-lawn," and are occupied by people «. These belong to the cosy cots, named j "Sea-lawn, MId-lav.-n, Rock-lawn, and «. midnight. He had ieen visitin.i, his the capitol. And I suppose it was something of the same joy tha thrilled the heart of the old shepherd as he stood in the palace of the prime minister. It is a great day with yov when your old parents come to visit you. Your little children stand around with great wide-open eyes, wondering how anybody could be so old. The parents cannot stay many days, for they are a little restless, and especially at nightfall, because they sleep better in their own bed; but while they tarry you somehow feel there is a benediction in every room In the house. They are a little feeble, and you make it as easy as you can for them, and you realize they will probably not visit you very often—perhaps never again. You go to their room after they have retired at night to see if the lights are properly put out, for the old people understand candle and lamp better than the modern apparatus of illumination. In the morning, with real interest in their health, you ask how they rested last night. Joseph, in the historical scene of the text, did not think any more of his father than you do of vour parents. The probability is, before they leave your house they half spoil your children with kindnesses. Grandfather and grandmother are more lenient and indulgent to your children than they ever were with you. And what wonders of revelation in the bombazine pocket of the oi]e aud the sleeve of the other! Blessed is that home where Christian parents come to visit! Whatever may have been the style of tho architecture when they came, it is u palace before they leave. If (hey visit you fifty times, tho two most memorable visits will be the first and the last. Those two pictures will hang in the hall of your memory while memory lasts, and you will remember just how In other words, such an ingrate ought to have a flock of crows for pallbearers, i congratulate you if you have the honor of providing for aged parents. The blessing of the Lord God of Joseph and Jacob will be on you. I rejoice to remember that thougl my father lived j n a p ] ain house the most of his days, he died in a mansion piovided by the filial piety of son who had achieved a fortune. There the octogenarian sat, and the servants waited on him, and there were plenty of horses and plenty of carriages to convey him, and a bower in which to sit on long summer afternoons, dreaming over the past; and there was not a room in the house where he was not welcome, and there were musical instruments of all sorts to regale him; and when life had passed, the neighbors came out and expressed all honor possible, and carried him to the village Maehpelah, and put him down beside the Rachel with whom he had lived more than half a century. Share your successes with the old people. The probability is, that the principles they inculcated achieved your fortune. Give them a Christian percentage of kindly consideration. Let Joseph divide with Jacob the pasture fields of Goshen and the glories of the Egyptian court. And here I would like to sing the praises of the sisterhood who remained unmarried that they might administer to aged parents. The brutal world calls these self-sacrificing- ones peculiar or angular; but if you have had as many annoyances as they have had, Xantippe would have been an angel compared with you. .U is easier to take care of five rollicking, romping children than of one childish old man. Among the best women of our land are those who allowed the bloom of life to pass away while they were caring for their parents. While oth-ir maidens were asleep, they were soaking tho old man's feet, or tucking up fregh, to-day, jn spite of the passage of a UaU century. Joseph was as fresh Jn Jacob's m.eniory as ever, though at seventeen years plage the boy had dls- from the old homestead.

Do not Ijo ombari-assed if yom father conic to town and ho have tlu manners of the shepherd, and it' yom mother come to town and there be ir her hat no sign of costly millinery. The wife of the Emperor Theodosius said i wise thing when she said: "Husbands remember what you lately were, and 'remember what you are, and be thankful." By this time you all notice what kindly provision Joseph made for his father Jacob. Joseph did not say, "I can't have the old man around this place. How clumsy he would look climbing up these marble stairs, -ind walking over these mosaics! Then, he would be putting his hands upon some of theue frescoes. People would wonder where that old greenhorn came from. He would shock all the Egyptian court with hia manners at tablo. Besides that, he might get sick on my hands, and he might be querulous.and he -might talk to me ats though I were only a boy, when I am the second man in all the realm. Of course, he must not suffer, and if there is famine in his country—and I hear there is—I will send him some provisions; but I ian't take a man from Padanaram and Introduce Him into this polite Egyptian court. What a/ nuisance it Js to have poor relations!" Joseph did not say that, but he •ushed out to meet his father with per- 'ect abandon of affectipn, and brought Urn up to the palace, and introduced, bin; to the emperor, and ifrovided fpr ihe rest of his fatljer's days, and good |oj the old man p waj the covers around the invalid mother. While other maidens were in the cotil- lon, they were dancing attendance up- in rheumatism and spreading plasters for the lame back of the septenarlan, and heating catnip tea for insomnia. In almost every circle of our kindred there has been some queen of self-sacrifice to whom jeweled hand after jeweled hand was offered in marriage, but who stayed on the old place because of he sense of filial obligation, until the lealth was gone and the attractiveness if personal presence had vanished. •irutal society may call such a one by a nickname. God calls her daughter, and heaven calls her saint, and I cal her domestic martyr. A half-dozen ordinary women have not as much nobility as could be found in the small- fist joint of the little finger of her left hand. Although the world has stood six thousand years, this is the first apotheosis of maidenhood, although in the long line of those who have declined marriage that they might be qualified for some especial mission are the names of Anna Ross, and Margaret Brc-ckinridge, and Mary Sheltou, and Anna Ethericlge, and Georgiana Willets, the angels of the battlefields of Fair Oaks and Lookout Mountain, and Chancellorsville, and Cooper Shop Hospital; and though uingle life has been honored by the fact that the three grandest men of the Bible— John and Paul and Christ — were celibates. Let the ungrateful world sneer at the maiden aunt, but God has a throne burnished for her arrival, ami on one side of that throne in heaven there is a vase containing two jewels, the one brighter than the Kohinoor of London Tower, and the other larger than any diamond ever found in the districts of Golconda— the one jewel by the lapidary of the palace cut with tho words: "Inasmuch as ye did it to father;" the other jewel by the lapidary of the palace cut with the words"Inasmuch as yo did U to mothev."- "Over the Hills to the Poorliouse" i| the exquisite ballad of Will Carleton who found an old woman who had beea' turned off by her prosperous sons; bufe I thank God I may find in my text of the literary, musical and artistic world, who thus share a part of "The Bungalow" life, their relations being fraternal rather than financial. It is therefore a frequent occurrence for them to meet in "the Bungalow" and to contribute to the general fund of amusement by music, song and the other accomplishments, and to join in the impromptu dances which almost nightly, in the height of the season, are liable to occur. Imagine the great leviathan, stranded upon a pebbly beach, around which remnants of a former forest grew with green grass almost to the water's edge, and a bay of sapphire stretching before you for a mile, where it is merged into the darker waters of the Sound. Consider, then, the rock upon which "The Bungalow" is built as that leviathan; upon its gray back stands the house, twenty-live feet above the water: The winds buffet it, and the angry waves thunder in impotent fury against its rock base; the hurricanes lash it with the spray of the surf in vain. From the windows of the homo then, as they madly turn, they blare as you might from the windows of a lighthouse, observe the tremendous workings of the sea and wind. In stormy weather one hears musical notes swelling like an organ through the windharps swinging in tho breeze, then, as they madly turn, they blare as the wind increases, a strange, weird accompaniment to the shrieking demons of the storm. The front of the house faces the bay and Sound to the south, and is reached by steps cut and built in the rock, or on the east side by means of a natural stairway of rock, which was left without any artificial touches, and with the rugged storm-torn cedars clinging to the crevices. "The Bungalow" was juilt, so to speak, by letter, Mr. Wilcox being absent. The architect who superintended the construction of the cox extending to an almost unlimited circle of friends and acquaintances. Mrs. Wilcox is very industrious, and although she has no regular Medo- Persian rules as to time, she generally writes some every day. She works with intensity and earnestness: and what her literary conscience tells her has been neglected one day. she makes up the next day, being capable of rapid and effective writing under pressure of circumstances. She also possesses a faculty of concentration of mind under conditions that would madden most persons. Ordinary conversation, music and laughter, she does not mind, but I am sure she is more often hindered than most writers are by well-meaning bores, who monopolize her valuable time by nonsensical conversation; or by boorish idiots, who allow their curiosity to drive them to the indecent act of peering through windows, as if at some wild beast show. Mrs. Wilcox writes without the use of many notes or books of reference, and her original manuscripts show a wonderful lack of changes or corrections. "I wrote my first novel," says Mrs. Wilcox, "on the backs of old letters, seated from time to time, in the boughs of an old apple tree. My home was in Central Michigan, and I saw nothing but that bit of country until my marriage. I divided my novel into chapters, and put little poetic lines at the top of each chapter. Original? Yes! But my friends told me that authors always quoted those verses at the head of their chapters, and so, ever after I had a contempt for authors who could not write their own verses." a90 \^T" n torii » A man intending 'to n»- i. machinery will first AW-M *** fa "n the Hg hte8 t running and I?** *• adapted for his work M b( *t look for a cheap article ! tdoes n <* Pr ce, but he wants the hest af * Io » price. esi » a t a fa|f Yet, how often a man mg a sewing machine win the cheapest made.

In these days, when much is expected of women, the question of their physical training ought to receive more attention. In this respect girls are at a disadvantage as compared with boys, for up to eight or nine years of age a girl mixes often on equal terms with her brothers in their sports, but after that ago healthy exercise is sacrificed to the bondage of genteel deportment. The young girl is confined, and any gymnastic exercises that are permitted are too often performed in a close room instead of the open air and under the restraint of ordinary clothing. Anything like vigorous muscular movements are thus rendered impossible, and almost the sole exercise is the torpid walk. Owing of the want of functional activity of the muscular system, the muscles waste and dwindle, and the nutrition of the body becomes impaired. Many of the troubles women suffer from in later life are undoubtedly due to impaired muscular vigor. Girls need not emulate their brothers in the cricket field, but rackets and lawn tennis might with advantage be "What a beastly cold you've got.Sam! Where did you get it?"
