The saddle and traces which arc attached to the collar are then lifted bv these two dogs over the other dog's back, and that completes his outfit. He then turns in and helps to harness another, and so on until they are nil harnessed. The leader then takes one of the traces between his teeth and forces it over the button on the side of the cart. The other trace is served in the same way.

« THERE ARE NO TEARS IK HEAVEN." [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 2 April 1869

« THERE ARE NO TEARS IK HEAVEN." fMtaj. . ' : •—— '—r I met a child ; his feet were bare, His weak frame shivered with the cold ; His youthful brow was knit with care, His flashing eye bis sorrow told. Said I, "Poor boy, why weepest thou,?" "My parents are both dead," he said; 1 I have not where to lay my head ; "O, I am lone and friendless now!" Not friendless, child ; a friend on high For you his precious blood 1 ft) given ; Cheer up, and bid each tear be dry—"There are no tears in Heaven." I saw a man, in life's gay nooc, Stand weeping o'er his young brid'rf bier ; " And we must part," he cried "so soon !" As down hi» cheek there rolled a tear. ''Heart-stricken one, ''said I "v. e- p not!" "Weep not!" in accents wild he cried, " But yesterday my young love died ! "And shall she be so soon forgot ?" Forgotten ! No, still let her love Sustain thy heart, with anguish riven ; Strive thou to meet thy bride above, And dry your tears in Heaven. X.s*iBB*sijB*nts*^a*Mb*>&...

GOOD HITS BY A WOMAN. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 2 April 1869

GOOD HITS BY A WOMAN. Tlv Independent has ft woman correspondent at Washington, who "shoots folly as it rlies," and seldom fails to bring down the game. We take a few extracts from a letter in last week's number, which will repay I perusal. Speaking of the crowd of people ; at the capitol, who are asking for office, j she says : j "I see many face* to sympathize with in j these lobbies—honest country laces, careworn, I sickly ones, who really look as if they had the j right to whatever they may have come to ask for. Of course, somebody has a right to the ¦ Government patronage ; perhaps those who - come after it have as good right as anybody. I But it strikes me very oddly when I hear ' . members of Congress and their wives speak-| - ing loftily and contemptuously of "office, ; seekers," as if belonging to a totally different genus from themselves. My opinion is that they are all office-seekers together ; the difference being only in degree, in the fatness of the prizes which ...
