It was Christmas* d.iv, but the festivities 
of that occasion scarcely existed for the 
Harford family. The mother had done her 
best to make it seem like Christmas; bnt 
her drunken hnsb-md liad just slammed 
the door behind him. wh-.le she, hir Jace 
flashed with a bl.'W. turned to h.r boy, 
Fred, who had sunk down by the firesid*-,

emplovmeiit: he would be sober and in- 
dustrious, au<l aiiord that helpod and com-

look tor frotu no otJi- r source. 

Fred carried out his dwleruiination. Two 
years passed bv. und he whs to come home 
to gpend Chr>~>fmas. I* was ea-ly in the 
morning when he reached home, and pro 
ceede.l to wake hia mother in a nove 
manner. He commen'-d one ot their old 
familiar car'-'Is which he h,id many a time 
sung with the litlie on»8 at home. Npt »

during the sirgiui; of which .she had hax- 
tily d^e^sed herself, tanibhiig over herself 
almost m her liaste, aud making a noise | 
which awoke the children in the next 1 
■ room, though it did not wake her husband. 
He was sleeping off a drunk, u tit, and it 
would have taken wrmetbing i\ little less 
noisy than booming cannon to arouse 

him. , , J 

In a moment she wis at the door, and 
mother und son were in e-a.-h <Uhers armi. 
After a long embrace she stood an ,iy to look 
him np and do-^r, and after a fend survey, 
she said. '-How yon arf gro^n. Fred! and 
how well yon loo!;! and how wt-U to-do in

"You ought to have a great -coat like 
Fred's," she replied. "You might easy get 
one. as he did, afore next winter." 

•What! save three half penae a day. 
Course I could, luid I'll begin," he said. 

"But I did something more than that, 
father," said Fred. 'It I hadn't I might 
I just have gone on saving for a month or

summary of this document is given by Mr. 
Cartwright in the "Memorial Sketch ot 
Ber'enroth, which he has just published, 
and^of which we shall have furtluroccasion 
to speak. In reproducing the substance ol 
this vivid and startling narrative, it is 
needful to say that Bergenroth died before 
he had fully satisfied himself as to its 
genu-neness. The story is cs follows: 
••Don Carlos was a young ijrince veiy much 
inclined to do what olea-sed him without 
any respect for others. He was, howev,-r, 
on Kood terms with his father. King Philip

"And only one thing robs yon ot a 1 that,

manded his wife and 
them under severe penalties, to see each 
other or to write to one anoti er. Don 
Carlos, instead of repenting. con- 
ceived a very strong hatred of his 
father, and relished any misfortune that 
might befall him." One resalt of this was 
that he entered into correspondence with 
the Prince of Orange and Counts Egmont 
and Horn, promising to joia their move- 
ment, and, it pos!:ib!e,to persuade his fath- 
er to give him the command of the troops in 
the Low Countries, which he could then

'•Yes, I minded it welL 
had he;ird the f^^ me. I thought then, 



It seemed all 
if I could only 



i ing on His help. You remember that he i tj^,jgfer. together with himself.to the ranks 

of the insurgents. Again the Prince was un- 
lucky in papers revealing the project, or.at 
least', suggesting a scent of it, falling into 
hia father's hands. First, the King profess- 
ed 10 believe that it was a case of heresy, 
and arresting Don Carlos, referred him 
to the Inquisition. They proBOunc^ the 
Prince to be a good Catholic, and the King 
next resolved to proceed against him for 
high treason. He himself dictated the ac- 



Flemish. who against all reason and justice 
were oppressed; and that the t^neen was 
enterelv innocent. Then the narrative de- 
scribes the preparations for death : 

A chapel is prepared in a contiguous 
room, into which the sacred vessels, &c., 
from tbe Royal Chapel are brou-^ht. The 
Prince conlessfs. Mass is s.iM. The 
Prince prays with his confessor until Var- 
gas. Perez and Escovedo enter tbe room. 
The Prince takes a crucifix from the hands 
of the confessor, and put it on his mouth, 
for it was clear that he still bore very ill- 
will towards his judges. The Prince for- 
gives his father. The confessor exhorts 
him to forgive also his judges, leading bun 
slowly to the room where the execution is 
to take place. The Prince says: "I for- 

give all. ' , , 

They enter a room where a large arm- 
chair is placed, s irroanded by a great 
quantity ot saw-d ist. The executioner 
stands near it with bis knife. The Prince 
is not frightened by that sight. He is seat- 
ed on the chair. The executioner begs his 
pardon, and tbe Prince in is gracious man- 
ner give.^ him his hand to kias. The exe- 
cutioner ties his lejis and arms with 'Hutas' 
[I i\o know that word, says Berg-uroth] of 
Cologne to the legs and arms ot the chair; 
ties a bandage of b ack silk round his eyes; 
and places himself with the knife in his 
hand behind ihe Prince. The 
Prince says to the ( onfessor, "Pray for my 
soul." The confessor says the Credo, and 
the Prince responds in a clear and firm 
voice When he pronounced the words 
' unico fijo"-onlv son— the execu-ioner 
put his knife to his throat, and a str^m 
of blood rushes do'vn on the 8awda<»t. The 
Prince struggles httle; the knife being 
very sharp, had cut well. The exe- 
cutioner takes tho bandage from the 
e\e8, which arw closed. The tace is 
pale. Uke thatcf a oorpse, out has preserv- 
ed its natural expression. The executioner 
unties the corpse. wraps it lu a 
black baize cloth, and puts it m a comer 
of the room. That done, Antonio Perez 
flies all at once at the executioner, accusing 
him of having stolen the diamonds of the 
Prince. The executioner denies, is search- 
ed Perez finds, in one of the folds of his 
dress, the diamonds. The executioner 
grows pale, and declares that this is 
witchery. Es^coveio is sent to the King, 
and soon returns with two arquebasiers. 
The King, he says has ordered that the ex

them had not time to escape, except one 
girl who had fled from a house, but not far 
enough to escape from falling. She fell on 
the top of the houses and was rescued. 
Three families living in an adjoining 
block had just escaped when the whole 
block went down. There were ten per- 
sons swallowed up with the houses. Geo. 
Suank, his wife and four children, and Mr. 
Retch, his wife, child and mother, were 
the unfortunates. They are still in 
the mine, and must certainly all be dead. 
The Hazelton steam fire-engine has been 
throwing a continual stream on the ruins 
since dayhght, and the firemen are doing 
all in their power. A rope has been ex- 
tended around the hole and all persons ex- 
cluded from the immediate vicinity. - 
Trains are running from Hazelton every 
hour to the scene of the disaster, and will 
do so until all the bodies are recovered, 
which will be some time yet, as it is still 
dangerous to enter on the work of rescue. 
i The earth is still continuing to fall in and 
' enlarging the cavity continually. The ex- 
t cileuieut is very great and is increasing. - 
! Families in the vicinity are moving out of 
I the houses, fearing theirs will go next. It 
i is the general opinion that the other houses 
will fall in. There is also danger of the 
' mine taking fire. 

The cause of the accident was working 
; the breast in the colliery too ni ar the sur 
' face under the houses, there being only 
I about two hundred feet of space where 
they caved in. Only two days before a 
j couple of persons in a truck were pitched

How merrilv the brenkliiht-fimc passed, 
and whHt a 'happy day they hoped to 
spend! The siinshiii" wa'^ came into the 
house at last; it ligiito-l up the fi- -Mof the 
sad mother and Iht childnn, and made all 
bright. Toward niu" o'clo'k the merry 
hubub in the hou^-e awo'iio Mr. Harford, 
and lesrning that Fre.' was come, he set 
hinia»-lt to the dread.d task of getting up. 

Presently the eluirch Ik-Us, be^an to 
chime, atid" Fred proponed tha* they should 
go to their house of worship. "I shall^ be 
glad to see the familiar old place ajriin," he 
aaid. All the chiUht-n wankil to l;o with 
Fred, and he wanted hn f.ithir to go. too. 
He rflu.-<ed quite decidedly at first; it was 
out of the question, he said, and he never 
went to church r ow. "All the more reason 
why you should «o tcv<liy. father," urged 
Fred. „ .^ 

•'But t'vs got nothing fit to put on, said 

tbe father. 

"Ye.s, you hive," ."aid the wi*^e; 'your 
best coat is up stpir'*." 

'How came it ihert-V'he asked, uja.«iton- 
ishment ,, 

"Never mind iibout that now, said Mrs. 
Harford; ••but just go and make yoursel 
sprnce. and go out wi'.h Fred this once. Wr 
may never meet together on a Christmas 
day "gwin, vou know." 

'•Look at Fred's coat -what a beauty!" 
cried Suiie, as Fted took it from a peg be- 
hind the do.ir. 

"Why. Fred, you look as though you 
were yetting ou' in the world. " said his 
father. "How did you manage to get that 
and your watch too? ' 

•You must know I haven't spenta farth- 
ing ot m\ 'v.iuea on them." >aid Fred. 

"Then how in the world did yon get 
them?" 

"The price of h If a pint of beer a dav 
lor nearly three years got thfse for me," 
said Fred. ".VU ihe fellows at our place 
are allowed h.df a pint a day. I told mas- 
ter th»t I'd rather not have any. aud if he 
liked to make nu- any aMowrtnce for my not 
having it he micht: or Id just leave it, and 
sav nothing at>out an allownnce. He said 
he liked to encourage yonn;; fellows to l)e \ 
abstainers. and allowed" m** three half v>ence | 
a day. That has be^n 1 lith.nlly given me 
for two years and nine montLs, und has 
been something like >ix pounds five shil; 
hng<i in mv ptxket Wiih that, yon see. I 
have been" well able to buy my watch and 
coat, and to send home some littl* Chris- 
tro"\a gifts last year, as well as to bring 
these." 

"Who'd ever hs' thoaght tnat three han- 
p*nce .^ day save4 w.^rnd have run up to

Ned was trving to do a sum cf the same 
kind in mental arithmeti.;. though with low- 
er figures than those whi^h came to his 
father's mind : and both b^gan a series of 
self-reproach in gs. and both felt that they 
had been foolish in the highest degree. 

"Yon did well -yon did well, Fred." said 
his father, with a sigh. 

Then Mr. Harford and his chiUlren went 

to church. W hen they returned Mrs. Har-

"And I too." said Ned. standing up very 
straight to give emphasis to his words. 
"No iiiore o" my tin shall go into the pub- 
lics, not if r know it. I knows a tncK o 
getting the viilue of it now, as I didn't 
Thing of afore I saw Fred's greatcoat." 

So, to make a long story short, it came 
to pass that Fred's great-cont was an in- 
alrnnient cbo,seii to work quite a revolution 
in Hartford's Ik me. Did you ever know a 
man give in who commenced climbing up- 
ward ami onward, with a strong deter miu- j f^''ce,"and he recovers, 
ation. and relying^ upon God for strength j tinner prepares himself 
and assistance ? Never. 

No, he did not give in; and the happy 
i Christmas dav which he sprnt on the occa- 
' sion of Fred's memorable visit was the 

first of a long series of happy ones. The 

sunshine he 'orough'. did not fade away; 

it brightened and brightened into a perpet- 
ual glow of comfort and peace. 

Fred aid come home again on the fol- 
lowing Christmas, aud wh ked to (;hapel 

with bis parents imd brothers and .'•isters; 

but he was not the < nly one that weut out 

of tho house with a great coat on his back 

that day ; there were two others that had j 

got thi "m the 8»ime way as he had got his. | 

He wo.e the same one that he had ap- 1

looks almost as good as nnw," he said,

A Literary Curio.sity 

The little catalogue of Constant Meyer's I residing in La 
paintings, just published by the auction- tached to a youn 
eers who are to dispose of these woiks of 
art, is a literary curiosity of a very novel 
and interesting sort Each paintin? is en- 
tered in the catah kjue with the prefix of a 
poetical epigraph attributed to some emi- 
nent iiulhor. it vill occur to very few who 
run over the list of the pictures that these 
little geais of poetry are' ail imitation, that 
is to say, thit they were never produced by 
the poets to whom they are imputed. Gems 
they are, neveriheless, and not paste, and 
their close resemblance in rhythm and 
styls to their suppositions authors consti- 
tutes their excellence. How very like Brown- 
ing is this:

It seems that a girl about sixteen years of 
age, daughter of v ry respectable parents, 
Porte, lud., became at-

her parents'wouid not permit her to marry 
him. On Monday morning last she took 
$1,000 of her father's money, and in com- 
pany with her lover left for Toledo. They 
stopped at some place between this city 
and La Porte Monday night, where the girl 
purchased several sil'k dress patterns and 
other goods for herself, aud 'a hUit ol

city, the truants went to the Oliver House, 
where they registered as man aud wife,

The Bitters is not a liquor preparation, 
contains no intoxicating ingredients what- 
ever, gives tone to the whole system, and 
is very carefully prepared by one of the 
most scientific chemists and pharmaceut- 
ists in America, from roots and herbs 
gathered in Germany. 

Hoofland's German Tonic is a combina- 
tion of all the ingredients of the Bitters, 
with pure Santa Cruz Rum, orange, anise, 
&c. It is used for the same diseases as 
tho Bitters, in cases -.vhere an alcoholic 
stimulant is necf.ssary. It is a prepara- 
tion of rare medicinal value, and most 
agreeable to the palate.

it was a panther, some a catamount, and 
others believed the voice that of a female ' 
in distress. They agreed to approach as 
near the spot wht- ncc the screams came as ■ 
po.-isible, aud took up the line of march 
toward the place. At each step the 
screams were rep«;.vted to the amazement 
of the boys, and if the truth must 
be toid there was a jierceptible 
terror in each one's voice, and daylight , 
would have exhibited very pale faces. 1 
Gnideil still nt-aier bv the stmngo noise,

years old, at the time. Her father said ' 
that, after landing from the ship, th.7 
were walking up the street, a servant k-ad- 
ing the party, with the little giri in her 
arms. And presently a huge miner, 
bearded, belted, and bristling with deadly 
weapons, just down from a long mining cam- 
paign in the mountains -evidently barred 
tho wav, stopped the servant, and stood 
gizing'with li face ad alive with gratifica- 
tion and astonishment. Then he said, rev 
and UUie*. in her erently, "Well, if it ain't a child! ' And 
then he snatched a little leather sack out 
of his pocket, and said to the >.ervant, 
"There's a hundred and fifty dollars in dn^t 
there, and I'll give it to you to let me kiss 
the child '. ' But see how things eliange

The Cciiaus Bill. 



Tho new Cenaiu Bill i» to bo so roluminous 

And conipliea'ed thftt all the bencfiti of a reasou* 

•bits coiDj-iUtion «ro lost. A census of all tho 

tljinf ? of t!io banks, railroads, stag© lines, cou- 

uccteJ ivith aa ft^rlcultural history of th« nalion, 

with a history of the imisration to our country, 

the inci^sc of the original stock, and a geut-ral j 

history otiha doings of each individual, in what- i 

rret capacity or enlHn*. This creation of a bu- 

rjiu of census with all its new offices and duties 

if carried on and persisted in, ought to np^et and 

destroy any partv that gets it up. It .^cenis so 

strange that our rongressmen can consent to 

finding so many new avonuos for the eaoape oj. 

money. If it i« thought that the increase of gov- 

erntuent ofilocs will strengthen and perpeluale 

tho party, it ought to, and wiM, react upon those I 

who make it. A census of the people is well i 

enough; not parti?al«rly to know how many i 

there is of ns, but that an apportionment of the 

various oCices and duties may be had. It ought 

n;>». to be expensive. The first thought of a een- 

t.H was clear, plain, and eacy. Tho present is 

mu Idy, costly, and complicated. 

If Congress has a desire to become NOTORI- 
OUS, ill order that each one can have a hold up- 
on the people for a re election, they could ad- 
j >'irn. It wi^uld be one of tho brightest thing* 
>>n record. .Ti.it revise the old Census Law and 
go home. Tuero is not a want among iLe peo- 
ple so «we<jt as rejt. Rest for the weary ij no 
name for it. Rest for all the people. Let the j 
machine run ju-:t for one year, without eomi>li- 
cations let or hindrance. Would it not be glo 
ri-'us ? 



Hard to Kill. 

A row and reraarkaVile oase of stabbing took 
place ( hribtmas, at seven o'clock in the evening, 
on Broadway, mur eighth flreet, in front \>t 
Bioch's second hand store. Jerry llorgun was 
found lying there, with a knife buried luihob.iit 
iu hio left leiuple. He was unable to si-iak and 
xas thought to be dying. Restora'ives' rcvivid 
him ami he was taken to ihe Ciuciuuati Hos- 
pital. Here ho was uuusi'ully facetious in his 
talk. 

••Doctor,*' he said, •I guess I'm a dead man." 
'•You're worth two dead men,"' replied the doc- 
tor. 

'•Well," said he, '•! ain't fit to die. I'm too 
big a sinner." 

While tlio surgeons were preparing to extract 
the kniic he kept opening and .shutting the part 
that stuck out oi his head. "I just want to sec 
how it teels. It don't hurt a bit, but seems like 
I had two heads. We're a tough set. Life sticks 
to us mighty clote." 

Wlicn the surgeons got ready for work and 
found it impossible to estrtut the blade by hand, 
they laid the man on a eouoh upon tho floor, and 
with Ihe leli side of hi> head uppermost. Three 
men with might and main held his head down. 
The engineer brought his pipe tcnigs in to grasp 
the hilt of the knite. This gave a sort of augur 
hainUe for the surgeun and engineer to pull by.

On (he 2:'d ult , a train of seven cars ran ofl 
the track at or near the Turtle river, doing con- 
siderable damage find thieafening great bodily 
iaju'/ to those on board. T!ie following state- 
ment is made by one of ih? passengers : 

-Our train wiii uiaile up of ten bo.x cars heavi- 
ly loaled, the baggage car, and last of all, the 
passennr car. W hile running rather rapidly, 
near the foot of a hill and turning a curve, some 
of the wh.cli near the middle of the train began 
to jump the track. Tho panic spread among 
them until more than half the cirs were partly 
or entirely olT the track and in this demoralized 
condition we were running over a bridge 6i) feet 
long. Our first warning of danger was in tho 
fearful jerking aud bunipiug of the cars. Some 
ei"ht or ten lu'.n were on board, but fortunately 
niTlalies. .\ll started to their feet instantly ; 
some biajnd theniselve- by holding to the arms 
of the seals; some tamb'cd toward- tho doors to 
find a way of e.-cape. Imagine yourself inclosed 
in a bo.K an>l rolling down .stairs, and you may 
form some idea of our sensations. The next 
moment might send the car tumbling down an 
embankment or off tho bridge, and dash ns to 
pieces. Scvdal ran to the rear platform of the 
car, one jumped off, and others stood ready to do 
so in ease the danger seemed more imminent. At 
last, alter an age of second", the train stopped. 
Upon examination, we found tho track torn up 
and the rails torn up for some ilistancc. Tho | 
bridge wa- a wi-.-ek : the cro.s-ties were broken j 
and Mua'hed into splinters : nothing was left but j 
the splinters and the iron rail was gone from one ( 
of them. And yet wc had passed that sixty foot 
bridge iu that condition in safety ! How it could 
be done how we could escape .-Jerious injury or 
destruction, is a mystery. It must have been 
tho Lord's care of us. No one received any in- 
jury. When tho tr^'in stopped, seven ears were 
more or Ics* off the tntck. some on one side, some 
on the other. The passenger car was several

hair where the follicles are destroyed 
or the gland.s atrophi.'d and decayed 
But such as remain can \yQ saved for 
usefulness by this application. Instead 
of fouling the hair with a pasty sedi- 
niont, it will keep it clean and vigorous. 
Its occasional use will jirevent the bail 
from turning gray or falling off, and 
consequently prevent baldness. Free 
from those 'deletenuus f^ubstances which 
make some preparations dangerou.", ant^

A t'lioerliil Doctor. 

From the New Albany Commercial. 
One day last week ft prominent und very 
suoces.sful physician residint? in W^-shing- 
ton county, who has long enjoyed a Ineni- 
tive practice aud justly stan is high among 
the people of liis county, visited this city, 
and after making anch pnrcha8e.g of medi • 
cines, etc., as he needed, repaired to the 
principal undertaker's establishment in the 
city, where, after a long and critical exami- 
nation, heselt-ctod, purchased and paid for 
a coffin, in which, he said, he intended to 
be buried. 

The coffin was a plain cherry one, stain- 
ed and varnished, but unlined. The un- 
dertaker a.sked him if he would have it 
Imed. The doctor replied, " No, it is not 
necessary; my wife will line it when it 
reaches my home." The coffin was shipped 
to Salem on Monday last, whence it was 
conveyed the same day to the residence ol 
its owner. The doctor stated to the under- 
taker that he had long desired to have his 
coffin in his house, and that ho thought it 
• perfectly proper for one to pnrchase his 
coffin before he died, so that it might be 
ready without further trouble. 

It certainly will be allowed that the doc- 
tor's suggestion that his wife would line 
the coffin was rather cool, and t'j her it will 
no doubt prove startling. The g^ntlemiin 
was perfectly sane, a man of the highest 
chariicter, l>ut somewhat eccentric. We 
ahonld think, however, that a coffin in a 
house was not exactly the thing to produce 
the most comfortable feeling iujbe family. 

Two Hours ol Silence. 

The DeKalb County (111- ) ^■'='"- ^^ ^^j" 
weeK, says two gentlemen of DeKalb made 
ft wager with a conplo of ladies, where they 
were boarding, that they (the women) could 
uot "hold their tongues" for two conseca- 
live hours. The time for the pjunftil sus- 
pense was fixed, and at C o'clock in the af- 
ternoon "mum" was the word. Six cans 
of oysters, a dozen cans of peaches and 
the boys seeing, after a half l^""^ s sus- 
pense, that they were \\fe^ly .»<> »"°«^ 
went out and "interviewed" a Iriend, who 
called at the house and made many in- 
uniries regarding Sabbath school matters. 
Ac • but all was dumb. He was seat.-d l)j 
the'pointing of fingers, and his ques ions 
were an.swered by nods. Not a^ ^y^a^'e 
was elicited; not a word was spoken. All 
was qui«t as a deaf and dumb want The 



EC desirable. 
Containing neitlier oil nor dye, it does 
not soil wbiio cambric, and yet lasts 
long on the hair, giving it a rich, glo^ 
lustre and a grateful |K.'rfuine.

Horticultoral DcDartment. 

To keep pace with the growing interest in pracU 
cal Horticulture, and to comply with frequent ap- 
peals from all parts of the country for information of 
a practical character on the subject, we have engaged 
the services of a ^rson who is experienced in rural 
aflairs to write In a lucid style a aeries of artloles 
on the Management of 8m*U Farms, Fruit aud 
Vegetable Culture, and how to m»ke them pay, giv- 
ing i^eneral and Spe«lhc directions faom planting 
to the ultimate die osal of the crops. 

Of late years there has been a lucrative business 
carriea on by unprincipled m«n, 1a MJling worth- 
less and Old plants under new names to the inex- 
perienced. THB TRIBUNE will be always re»dy 
to guard the farmer against any suoh impo^ltioii 
that comes within our knowledge. 

Veterinary DeDartment. 

To make THE TRIBUNB stiU more valuable to 
Its agricultural readern, we have engaged Prof. 
Jaius L.iW, Veterinary Surgeon in Cornell Univer- 
sity to answer questions concerning diseases of 
Cattle, Horses, Sheep, and other domestic animals, 
and to prescribe remedies. Answers and prescrip- 
tions will be given only through the columns of 
THE TRIBUNE. We are sure that this new f eattire 
in THE TRIBUNE will add largely to its readers, 
ae all owners of auimala are liable to need the Infor- 
mation proffered. Inquiries should be made as 
brief as pesslble, that the questions, answers, and 
prescriptions moy be published together. In short, 
we intend that THB TRIBUNE shall keep in the 
advance in all that concerns the Agricultural. 
Manufacturing, Mining, and other interests of the 
country, aud that for variety and complc tenesa, it 
shall remain altogether the most valuable. Interest- 
ing, and instructive NEWSPAPER published In the 
world. 

It has been W( 11 observed that a careful ruding 
and study of the Farmers* Club Beports In THE 
TRIUUNE alone will save a farmer hundreds of 
dollars in his crop. In addition to these reports, 
we shall continue to print the best things written 
on the Bul<ject of agriculture by American and 
foreign vkTiters, and ahall Increase these features 
from year to year. As it Is, no prudent farmer can 
do without it. As a lesson to hia workmen alone, 
every farmer should place THB WEEK.LY TRIBUNE 
upon his table every Saturday evening. 

THE TRIBUNE u the best and cJuapett paper in 
tht country. This is not raid in a spirit of boastful- 
ncss. It has fallen to New York to create the graat- 
esl newspapers of the country. Here concentrate 
tho commerce, the manufactures, the mioeril re- 
sources, the agricultural wealth of the RepubUc. 
Here all the news gathers, and the patronage is so 
largo that Journalists can afford to print it This is 
the strength of THE TRIBUNE. We print the 
cheapest, and best edited weekly newspaper in the 
country. W« hare all the adranlagea around us. 
We have great Daily and Semi- Weekly editions. AU 
the elaborate and intricate machinery of our estab- 
lishment—perhaps the most complete In America— 
ia devoted to the purpose of making THE WEEKLY 
TRIBUNE the best and cheapest newspaper in the 
world. The result is that we have so systetnatiaed 
and expanded our resources that every copy of 
THE WEEKLY TRIBUNE contains as much matter 
as a duodecimo volume. Think of it 1 For two 
dollars, the subscriber to THE TBIBUNE for one 
year Imyi as muck reading mtUUr at tkougkhe JUUd 
a ihelf of his library wiUi fifty volumes, oorUaimittff 
the greatest works in Ou language. Tbe foroe of 
cheapness can no further go. 

THE WEEKLY TRIBUNE is tho paper of the 
people. Here the eager student may learn the laat 
lessons of science. Here the scholar may read re- 
views of the best books. Here may be found cor- 
rei>pondence from all parts of the world, the ot>- 
servatlous of Khicero and gifted mea, who serve 
THE TBIBUNE in almost every country. 

THE TRIBUNE is strong by reason of its enomum* 
circulation and great chtapnfsi. It has long been 
conceded that THE WEEKLY TRIBUNE baa the 
largest circulation of any newspaper in the country. 
For years wo have printed twice as many papers- 
peihaps, as all of the other weekly editions of the 
city dailies combined. This is why we are enabled 
to do our work so thoroUKhly and cheaply. The 
larger our circulation, the betttJ paper we can make. 
What are the practical suggettvm* f Many. Let 
every sn'-scriber renew his subscription, and urge 
his neighbor to do the tamo. If a man cannot af- 
ford to pay two dollars, let him raise a ciub, by In 
duclng his neighbors to smbfcnbe, and we ahall 
send hiiu a copy gratis lor his trouble. No news- 
paj.er so large aud complete as THE WEEKLY 
TRIBUKE was ever before offered at so low a price. 
Even when our currency was at par with gold, no 
siK-h paper lut THR TRIBUNE was offered at that 
price; aud THE TKIbU>E then cost us far leas 
than it now does. We have solved the problem of 
making the best and cheapest newspaper iu America.

now TO CHOOSE BL\CK SILK 

When a woman is about to choose black 
silk, it isVell to pnll on' a thread of the 
"tram," or lilhni,'. She must try the 
strength of the thread. If it breaks easily 
tbe eiamination has not gone far enough; 
it is wisilom to look farther. We will siij- 
posrt the tlirend has been tried an.l indi- 
cates seine buck-bone, then it is necessary, 
if the woman is ri^ht brave. and dare do 
' such a thins? with a handsome pair ol 
clerk's eyes beariui: dovvn upon her like a 
' privateer upon a poor little m- rcl.aiiti..nii. 
I to s»izb the silk by the corner and rub ii 
just us the w..Bher*oinan would do when 
I she intends to remove a stain. If this aw- | 
! ful ordeal can be pwrforrai-d to perfection 
1 remember, some muscle must be broii>,'ht 
into play the silk i>- h;<ii-staud Ik-gitiraat' ; 
, it will i-ome ontfriiiUM.bftnt. If it is heivy 
j with dye, if hr'ld ):• 'to the li;,'ht, slifs'lit 
! traces of diKa^iter m ■; be discerned. 

I ANOTIIEE DECEI'TION. 

[ Another kind of chf ap silk is palmed oil 
upon thu Auierican sisterhooil lor a better 
j article than it n-aliy is. It is haMd>ome, 
' heavy in appearance, and yet the dece)>liou 
■ does not consi. t alfo'^t-ther in 'dye." The 
' orgaiizine or wrap isi»ood, honest silk, but 
' the "trwnt," or fillintf, is in every sen.se of 
' the word "-shoddy." The refns-w.r waste 
I silk i» Rath.»red fruu other milis; old, dani- 
ape.l cocooiiS are boUf^ht and ciiopped u)>. 
I andi-ilk is spun liom this material jiv-t us 
I threid is dra\\!i from raw cotton. This 
) make^^abe•lUli:nl fillinR. as it "beats up" 
I quite as wel. as the "thread" of the worm. 
j but it « ill n.'t wrar like Pennine silk. That 
is not the proper word, for it i^ all silk. 
; We mean wc prefer the work perfoimed by 
tbe first worm'. It requires different ma- 
i chinrry to make this kind of silk, and onlj 
I one house in the United States m;ikes it. 
! Tho house bus ro'lrd up an inuneuHe for- 1 
I tntie at the pvn« nse of woman's credulity.

TItinkii of 
tlicPupe. 

A correspondent ot the N. Y. Herald, 
writiu<» from Const'tutinople, under date 
of theSthinst.. gives this account of a 
visit to the Patriarch of the Orerk Chuich: 
After having made application through 
he proper authorities I received a note 
tstating that the Patriarch would be glad to 
see me at two o'clock in the alternoon.— 
Stariii.g from my hotel in Pera, the Euro- 
pean quarter of "the city, I followed my 
;,'uitle through one of the most character- 
^3tic> parts of Constantinople. From the 
heights of Pera are to be seen Slamboul, 
or the ancient city, built, like Home, on 
Keveii fills, with the land locked and un- 
rivaled harbor of the Golden Horn on the 
one hi.le and the broad and swiftly flowing 
waters of the Bosphornson llie oilier. On 
the .-lope of the hiH is tho old Turkish 
ceiueleiy, wilh its thousands of tomb- 
stones— sfime erect and well jireserved, 
oth'.'iB broken and inclined, atid many ly- 
in.' on the ground. Passing through the 
iianow, crooked and filthy streets below 
the cemetery, I soon arrived at the water's 
e.lgo, and. i-'leiipin;j into a caique, was 
rowed quickly across the Golden Horn.— 
The Patriarcbial residence is in a part ot 
Stamboul called Phaiiar -[Phanaris inhab- 
ited mostly bv Greeks. From this name 
isderivodthe term Phanariote. often ap 
plied to the Greeks of Constantinople] - 
und is not more than a couple of minutes' 
walk from the landing place. 

Upon my arrival I found a servant await- 
iu" me, by whom I was conducted to the 
ro-,m of "the vicar, Kleobulos. Alter ex- 
chiugnigft few Words with the reverend 
f'entl.man I was informed that His Holi- 
ne-,s fb.e Pat.-iach was rendy to receive me. 
Vfior passing through two outer rooms, 
very mo.k-itly furnished, I was nslured in- 
to the presence of Gregory, Patriarch of 
Constantinople. 

As I entered tho room the Patriarch 
ar. f:.< from the sola on which he ws sitting, 
and when the formality of intmduction was 
ov,T iiivifed ini to t.ke a seat near him. 
The room in which wo were was similar to 
the {.receding ones in the nuxlesty of its 
;ipisniitments. .\ tatiie, a few chairs, a 
stove, a sofa, occupying one end and the 
grati r portion of two sides of the room, 
CO nj)l. ti-d the furniture. The Putrhirch 
oco ipied one corner of the sofa; I sat on 
bis fi-bt and the vicar on his left. 
, Slowing already that I came Irom Aiuer- 
I i(a the Patriarch says he was al.vays grati- 
1 fii d t ) see mv countrymen, and inquired 
what I'art ot the United States I came trom. 
Wiiin I informed him that I crime from the 
Sllate ot Wisconsin he remarked, "Your 
^^t.^t'.• forms a portion of the Great West, 
Ibe he.^it of America, the country of the fu- 
ture." . 

Servants now appeared bringing jedies, 
prH<K.«rves and Turkish coffee. 

While partaking of those refreshments 
>.U:>. Conversation turned on religion in 
America, a subject with which he seemed 
verv f'liiii iar. He spoke of tho letti r rc- 
e, ri"tlv addre.-.sed to the Pope by Righi 
U.,v." Dr. Col. Bishop of Biiflfalo. With 
this letter ho expressed himself (Satisfied, 
indBiii.l the position taken by the writer 
vv,iK entirely in accordance with that main- 
tiiiiied bv tiift Churches of Greece; Russia, 
and oilier orthodox sees of tho Orient. 

I now asked what the Eastern Church 
thought of the pr sition claimed by the 
Pope. 

'i he answer I received was substantially 
as f.dlows:— "Tbe Pope i.s by right only 
I r.ishop of the Diocese of Rome. Prece- 
I denee wasaccorcied to this see by the early 
Church, but tor ceuturieis neither the Ro- 
1 man bi-'Ii'-p u^-r any of his brother bishops 
iiiiugintd tl.ai bebad any jurisdicliou be- 
1 youfi the limits of his own diocese." 
t "Unity of ihe Church, as now nnder- 
i stood at Rome; th»relore did not exist in 
; the tiist centuries V" I asked. 
I -No," was the reply. "Ihe unity of the 
t.'hmch up to the time of the Latin schsm 
was ev.ry where maintained by cf'iumunion 
bilw.-eii the sees, or, as they w.re then 
railed, churches, and tbe universal or Cath- 
olic Chnich, the Church in its entirety,

Slonusin tho Sun. 
Professor J. D. Steele has communica- 
ted the lollowiug to the Elmira Adver- 
tiser: 

•There appeared in the Advertiser some 
weeks nince'a paragr.TPh, copied, I believe, 
from a MicLig-n papwr, dt-claring tbat a 
column of magnetic bght is shooting out 
from the sun at a prodii,'iou8 speed - that 
It already reaches hslf way to Ihe earth, 
and that, in all probability, by another 
summer, we shall have celestial a\ A at 
mospheric phenomena beside which our 
rudest winter winds will seem like a 'June 
morning in Paradise." In fine, that when 
this big tongue of fire touches the earth it 
will likely lap np our globe at one mouth- 
ful. Very many have made inquiries of 
me concerning this prodigy, and with your 
leave, I will try to satisfy their curiosity 
and perhaps allay their fears. 

It has been known for some titue that 
during a total eclipsu red flames weri> seen 
to play about the edgeoi the moon. Dur- 
ing the ecliii.ses of 181)8 and ISli'J ii \v:>s 
dtffinitely settled that they were entiiilj 
disconnected from tho moon, and wti« vnht 
tongues of tire darting out from the sun'.s 
disc. By observations with the spectro- 
scope, and also by moans of the wonderful 
g holographs of (he sun taken by De La 
ne during tbo eclipse of 1860, it was dis- 
covured thatthoKO fire mountains cnn.sisted 
mainly of burning hydrogen gas. This 
was precious inlormation lo secure in the 
midst of the excitement, and novclly, an.; 
in the brief duration of a total eclipse. Ii 
did not. however, satisfy stuentific men. 
For two years Mr. Lackyer. aided by a 
grant fiom Parliament to construct a su- 
perior instrument, had bi e n experiment- 
ing and searching in order to detect the.sv 
flames at other times than at the r.iro oc 
cnrrence of a total cclippe. On tb.c 2"th o 
October, 1H68, he oiitaiued a distinct image 
of one of tho prominences, which ho after- 
ward traced entirely around the sun. As- 
tronomers can, therefore, now study these 
flames at any time. 

Tho result of obs 'ivalious now being 
taken show that storms rigo u .on the sun 
with a violence of which we can form no 
conception. Hurricanes swept over its 
sarfaoe with terrific violence. Vast cyc- 
lones wrap its fires into whirlpools, nt tin 
bottom of which ourearih cmild lie like u 
boulder in a volcano. Huge flames d.iri 
out to enormous distances, and fly <.vt r tin 
sun with ft' speed greater than that of the 
earth itself through space At oie finn. a 
cone of fire shot out 80.0tKJ miles, and then 
died away all in ten minutes time. Be-

which the Patriarch has very decided

blasphemy. InfallibiUty was promised to 
the CUiiirch, and not t" a lew nun or one

r,y no means make him the successor of

•There appeared in the Advertiser some 
weeks nince a paragraph, copied, I believe, 
from a MicLig'U papvr, declaring that u 
column of magnetic hght is shooting out 
from the sun at a piodij-dous speed - that 
it already reaches halt way tolhe earth, 
and that, in all probability, by another 
summer, we shall hav.i celestial ft' d at 
mospherio phenomena bebido which our 
rudest winter winds wdl seem like a 'Juiej 
morning in Paradise." In tine, that when 
this big lonfjne of fire touches the earth it 
will likely lap up our globe at one mouiii- 
ful. Very many have made inquiries of 
me concerning this prodigy, and with your 
leave, I will try to satisfy their curiosity 
and perhaps allay their fears.

The people ar« to Blame. 

It is a lamentable fact that offices and officers 
are increasing all over the loxrf. and sucking 
np the increase ol the peovle in ever} possible 
r.rm. Silently aid quietly we nre btcou.ing 
ased to bear the burden, and looking for no 
reme«^y. The h«bit of allowing ihctcfScets to 
become our dictators, is ju^t as patent as in 
any Monarchy in Eur pe, and the oficer fe. Is 
yiatbehas a right to take all the advanUges 
In his power to enrich fcilE^elf, and that no 01. • 
kts a right to complain. There is too much 
centraliiation in power. We are haying '00 
many officers whoie appointments come from 
persons who have climbed to dignity thiough 
purchase and contracts, and who teel only re- 
•jonsiMe to ag'-nit who lave done their bid- 
ding. There is no good reason why our reve 
Dua officers should not be elected by the pcpie, 
and also the Register and Receiver of the Land 
Offloe. The Land Office it-elf should be located | 
by those who use it, for thoir own benefit, and j 
But as now carriea at the bidding of some pur- i 
erased official, to the great inconvenience 
those who nse it. The peo/le are learning 
belicre and know that their interests are 
secondary importance. Slid are learning to ac- 
*l.iie«ce, and bear the burdens iaip^sed on them. 
Just se4> how quietly and meekly one meets with 
rebuff and dictation from these thaps A man 
mav c, me fifty miles tu perf-tm five minutes 
la^or witn iha Land Office, and is t-ld he is five 
minutes too late for that day. No matter how 
poor be is, how poorly he can afford to pay bills. 
er how Lis family 's left at home, he must wait 
iwtlve fcr eighteen hours to gi^e dignify to bii- 
■npericr. or ptrhsps if bo is able, an X will 
as.'uagethe unpcrtanct o! the di/nitary.

MISCELLANEOUS. 



A XOYEMBER AFfERNOON. 



BT REBBCCA HARDIXa DAVIS 

The wind nfl" the Delaware was keen. 
It reddened the noses of the pretty young 
girls hurrying home up Chestnut street, 
and brightened their eyes ; their plaid 
cloaks and scarlet plumes fluttered; the red 
sunset glittered on the windows ; people 
culltrd gayly to each other as they pa.ssed ; 
out of every area window came savory 
whiffs of dinner. The world to Sam 
liendor had never seemed more .insulting- 
ly gotnl humored. 

" Ilowd'ye like this blow, Sam? Smells 
winterish, eh?" 

" How goes it, Bender?" 

" What's the good news, Sam ?" 

Bender turned at this. It was little 
Joe Houston, one of his fellow clerks, 
who had (lapped him on the back. 

"Good news? no good news," turning 
grutlly awuy. Yet he wi.shedthe fantastic 
little fellow would stay with him. 1I»: felt 
terribly alone— as he had never done be- 
fore in all his life— things had reached 
such a narrow strait with him to-day. 

"Tut, tut, Bender! Voure morbid 
since you've been sick. Do you think 
you're the firrst man that's had typhoid ?" 

I've lost more than health. I tind to- 
day Slouch stopped my salary after the 
tlrst week." 

" Whe^v ! But, after all, what's money, 
l)>y :• Can sordid dust make the 'bosom's 
lord sit lighter on his tl»rt>ne?'" tapping 
his gau ly little wai.stc«mt theatrically. 
" Anyhow, I don't believ« Stouch knew 
anything about it. It's that cursed old 
Morris.'^ 

" What does that matter? It's gone. I 
have been saving for yoars to pay off the 
mortgage on our house. I'll have to take 
the money to clear off the debts of the 
List throe months, and the mortgage falls 
due to-morrow." 

i v" Thai's l)ad luck, indeed ! Such a 
snug little houso, too! How long have 
you lived ther«, Sam?" 

" I was born in it. It's the Bender home- 
stead. I've been saving ever since I was 
married, to pay off that mortgage. But 
now-" 

" Mary's done her share of saving, too." 

Bi'nder was silent a momant. "I have 
no fault to fled with my wife," ho said, 
coldly. 

" No chance of renewal !" 

*• None. lie is glad of the chance to 
foreclo.«!e." 

"T<K) bad, too bad!" He was chewing 
his sandy mustache. Joe was always 
fldgetty and in motion "There's Kitty 
Slouch ciiiuiug now. She's a brick of a 

(firl ! Know her? It would be worth a fel- 
ow's while to cut in there, hey? If you've 
nothing more to say, I'll join" her, Sam," 
his eager face growiug as red as his hair as 
the young lady came near. 

"I've nothing more to say." 

"'Bye, then!" touching his cap and 
skipping off to the side of the larg*, calm- 
eyed blonde who was abreast of them. 
Her heavy, lustrous silk brushed against 
Sam as .>ihi3 brushed by. When Houst<in 
joined her he spoke eagerly, motioning 
bark to Sam; then they both laughed. 
"What had induced Bender to make a" con- 
fidant of the man ? He cursed his own 
folly, li^)king after him as he went skip- 
ping along, light as a grass-hopper. Yet 
lie used to think J»>e was sofl-hearted as 
n wom.-in. But what did it matter to any 
man that he stu^xl there ruined to day. 
Ihe patient toil of years swept away in 
one blow? What did. the world care? Or 
(Jxl?— if there were a (Jod. Ho" lo<iked 
for a few minutes stolidly over the heads 
of the gay, moving crowd into the doudv 
sky. 

Only a year ago Sam had been a rigid 
church member, tetvcbing a class of boys 
in the Suud.ay- school. He tried to teach 
them to trust in a living Christ, to trust 
in each other ; constantly growing strong- 
er himself fioni the teaching. Now — 

It was not the loss of money. But 
that Mary should have turned from him. 

He walked down the street, with his 
hea I on his breast. Then he came slowly 
batk to the dix>r of Ssiul's ware-rooms. In 
a few minutes he could know the worst, 
and he would not shirk it. 

He did not r«meinber ever to have no- 
ticed this place pai^icularlr before. It 
was a seven storied, white marble building 
—the ware- rooms above, and the ground 
fltK>r occupieii as a .<5ale departroent. The 
manufacture was exclusively that of gas 
fixtures. 

The windows, beside one of which he 
Btooil, wer»« filled with costly bronzes; the 
lofty ceiling of the n>om within glittered 
with chantleliers and hnters. Two or 
three of these great gewgdws would have 
paid for his home, he thought, bitterly. 
It was strange tliat, at that moment, when 



he was waiting to know if his wife were 
true or false to him, the loss of the home 
should have recurred to him. But it had 
become, through long years of waiting, of 
penny-saving and self-denial, a mania with 
Bender. 

" Saul, Crompton & Saul " — he read the 
name of the firm over and over. The 
Sauls were merchant princes — Ilicksite 
Friends. He knew their stately houses 
out on Locust street. It was Crompton 
whom 3Iorris, the overseer, had told him, 
with so meaning a smile, was a gay fellow, 
" not to be trusted with so pretty a wife 
as your's, Bender." 

It was only this morning that Morris 
had told him this, when he had crept down 
to the office for the first time after his 
three months' illness. He felt, when he 
opened the office door, as if it were the 
gho.st of Sam Bender who was going in, 
the strength was so drained out of his 
body. Then he had, for a long time, 
noticed the change in Mary — how pre-oc- 
cnpied she was, silent, going about the 
house with her thoughts far off. He had 
ni)t ftiile'l to note her long absences, oven 
when he was still ill, and needed, or 
thought he needed, her constant care. 

This thing had worked a deep change 
in hira. Sam Bender was not the man to 
ask questions or chatter over his jealousy 
or wounded love. He only put his wife 
coldly from him, a little space, and wait- 
ed. At the mo.st he fancied that she had 
gn^wn wearied of the .sick-room and sick 
man. But when she was put away from 
him, the soul seemed to grow weak in his 
weak body. They had been a peculiarly 
loving husband and wife. 

That morning, Morris had told him first 
of the stoppage of his salary. " Very 
sorry, Mr. Bender ; glad to have you back 
again in the works. But the salary only 
went on for one week. Very true, Mr. 
Stouch has been in the habit of continuing 
back pay with some old retainers. But 
we are drawiug in, sir, drawing in. The 
money market never was so tight." 

It was, as Bender walked away from the 
d«sk, that Morris called him back, and 
as^ked him about Mary. "A particular 
friend of young Crompton's, eh?" 

" My wile does not know Mr. Crompton, 
nor do I." 

" No ? Better if you did, then," with a 
serious leok. "Mrs. Bender does. I 
meet them sauntericg along in the even- 
ing together frequently. Crompton's an 
attractive fellow. No wonder women 
like him for a friend. Irish, you know ; 
gay, handsome, genial. Too attractive to 
be trusted with as pretty a woman as 
your wife, Bender, if you'll allow me to 
say it." 

" I will not allow you to &\y it, Mr 
Morri.s. You do not know my Mary, and 
are not capable of judging her. For 
my part, I am very glad if she has made 
a pleasant friend. 

Morris laiil down his pen and came out- 
side f)f the desk railing. "Now, don't be 
offended and sulky, lad," drawing him 
aside. " I'm an older man than you. I 
know women better. They are nervous 
and magnetic, especially high-spirited, 
delicat"; women like your Mary, if that's 
her name. They grow tired of the jog- 
trot lif; at home, and the dull, daily 
talks with their husbands. They pine for 
some repetition of the old romantic, love- 
making days. So they form a platonic 
friend.ship. That's the worst I ever sus- 
pected of your wife — a platonic friend- 
ship. But if she were my wife," em- 
phatically, "I would as lief another man 
kissetl her lips as paltered in that fashion 
with her heart." 
" I am not alraid." Coldly. 
" Of course not. Oh, certainly not ! I 
am sorry I mentioned it." 

" On the contrary, I ant obliged to you 
for your interest in me. But you are mis- 
taken." 

" Well, good day, Bender. You'll bo on 
hand tomorrow ? By the way, though, 
it was odd, now, that Mrs Bender did not 
mention Crompton to you ?" 

He was not angry with Morris, though 
he had tried to blind him as he did. The 
old man wanted to save him — and her. 

He did not go home again, though he 
had promised Mary to be back by "noon. 
He told her he would bring iho back sal- 
ary with him, in time to piiy off the press- 
ing bills that aflemmm. He would draw 
the money fram the savings bank, too, to 
clear the mortgage. But, ou leaving 
Morris, ke had gone wandering aimlessly 
about the streets, out to Fairmountatlast. 
down between the great wheels, over 
which the river rushed with a deafening 
sound. It would be so easy to end it all I 
But Bender was a slow, phlegmatic man, 
not apt to be moved by any sudden temp- 
tation. 

He came back to Chestnut street in the 
afternoon. Young Ward met him, one of 
the clerks of the savings bank. " Hello ! 
Sam. You tt)ld me you ^meant to draw 
that little pile of yours to-day. Bank's 
just cli)sing. If you want It come along." 
" Yes, I suppose so," following him, 
" Going to clear your mortgage, eh ? 
That's clever. "\Yell, there you are," 
counting out the notes and smiling over 
the counter. Sam smiled back at him. 
Then he went out, and down to Saul «.t 
Crompton's He would meet her there, il 
itwastnte: the devil whispered that 
into his ear as a certainty. He had been 
standing by the window for an hour when 
Joe Houston passed. 

People went in and out of the show- 
rooms ; but Mary's slight figure, in the 
well worn brown suit, was not among 
them. He peered in now aud then 
through the shining vista of gilt work and 
colored glass, to see Crompton He would 
know him at the first sight, he knew — 
" tall, genial aad handsome." There was 
no one like him am<^ng the dapper liltl« 
clerks. It began to grow dark at last. Ue 
went in. 
"Is Mr. Crompton in?" 
"In his private oflice, sir. Second floor. 
Will you walk up ?" 

One of the clerks was coming down the 
stairs. " Ue is engaged just now, Pixil. 
A la.ly." 

" Will you wait sir," said the first. " Sit 
down," pushing a 8to«^l toward him, see- 
ing how white and weak he was. 
" I'll go outside, into the air." 
" You may miss Mr. Crompton. He 
comes down the private stairs ot^en on 
the other street. Shall I send your name 
up?" 
" No." 

He went Jout to the other street He 
knew Crompton would come down the 
private stairs. He knew who would be 
with him. The d^x)r of this side entrance 
is narrow; there was a fruiterer's etall 
next to il. Standing iji the shadow. Ben- 
der was almost concealed fr.)m view. 

Half an hour passed. The State House 
cl(X*k struck five. He moved to go away. 
After all, it might be but a devilish dream. 
Mary was at home, doubtless, watching 
at the window for him, with Jackey in her 
arms. 

The door opened. There was a mo- 
ment's pause, and then a man's voice : 



Give 



" Take care ! The stairs are dark 
me your hand." 

A ringing, rich voice, such as would be- 
long to a genial, love-making Irishman, 
softened now to a very tender inflection. 
Then there was a quick, light step upon 
the stairs. Bender had learned to know it 
years ago. They came out together on 
the pavement. Marv's dress almost 
touched her husiiand ; ft was her one good 
dre.-'S, the brown sUk so long kept for 
church. She had a bit of blue chenille, 
too, twisted in and out of the coils of her 
black hair. It was many a day since she 
had taken that trouble to look fair in his 
eyes ! They spoke together in a low tone, 
Crompton urging something which she 
faintly resisted. He prevailed at last, 
though. 

" I will be there at nine, then ?" raising 
his voice. 
" At nine if you will," she said gently. 
" Will it be safe ?" 

"Oh, quite safe. He goes to bed early 
since his sickness. Poor old Sam !" with 
a nervous laugh. 

" Shall I not go home with yon now? It 
grows late." 
" No, no. We may be seen together." 
He held her hand in his a moment, and 
then she was gone. Crompton stood still, 
looking alter her. Bender came up the 
pavement and faced him. His face was 
so ghastly and menacing that the younger 
man drew back, and the air died on his 
lips which he was softly humming. The 
low sunlight fell on his elegantly dressed 
figure as he stood there — on the flushed, 
handsome face, with its full, reddish beard 
and hair. 
Sam halted, and then went on. 
" Poor devil, I wonder whether women 
or whisky have driven him mad," thought 
Crompton, beginning his tune again a 
moment after. 

Bender went down toward Fourth street, 
with slow, resolute steps. His old strength 
.seemed to have come back to him in the 
last half hour. Stopping at a large board- 
ing house he sent in for Ward, the bank 
clerk. They had been old chums in Bend- 
er's bachelor days. 

" Lend me your revolver, Horace ; I'll 
be done witn it by to-moirow. Mine is 
broken and I never bought another." 

" Of course." Ward vanished and re- 
appeared in a moment. " What are you 
going to shoot, Sam— rats?" 

Bender took the pistol and turned 
away without speaking. He had been 
deaf and blind to every sight or sound of 
the streets since Mary's voice rung in his 
ears. After he was gone his manner re- 
curred to Ward as strange and unpleasant. 
" I believe I'll go after him." he thought. 
But dinner was ready, and he turned 
back into the dark entry ; and, being a 
feather-headed young fellow, forgot the 
whole matter speedily. 

The pistol was not charged. Bender 
stopped at a shop on the way up the street, 
and loaded it carefully. It was nearly 
dark when he reached his own steps. 

Mar^ opened the door before he could 
touch It. She wore yet her .silk dress and 
her pretty collar of fine lace ; her hair 
was curled about her face ; her cheeks 
were pink and hot ; her li(iuid eyes bril- 
liant with a new fire. He saw it all. 
What was it that Morris had said about 
their hunger for a repetition of the old 
love-making days ? She put up her mouth 
to be kissed, as usual, and wlien he passed 
her, hurried in after him, taking his hand. 
" Poor old papa ! He's tired ! Go in, 
Jackey ; don t worry father now." 

So skilled in deception already! She 
was leading him into the dining-room, 
where supper was spread ; but he put her 
quietly aside and passed up to his own 
room. She followed him. " You are 
worn-out. Why did you stay in the 
works all day?" coming behind him and 
putting her white hands on his shoulder 
as he sat staring into the fire. When he 
did not answer, she drew his head back 
on her breast and kissed his lips. 

That kiss set fire to the smoldering mad- 
ness within the man ; but he was always 
C(uiet and grave. He KK>ked her steadily 
in the eyes. How beautiful the face was 
that bent over him! Some dainty Ariel 
of a spirit looked out of it which he had 
never conquered or owned. He saw that 
clearly now. 

She turned away from him at last, and 
busied herself about the room — went down 
and brought him a cup of tea. The farce 
of playing the wife over, she became ab- 
sent, as was usual with her now ; her 
thoughts far off. He took out the roll of 
notes and laid them down on the mantel- 
shelf. 
" There is the mortgage-money." 
" Yes." She did not brighten and flush 
as she would once have done. He remem- 
bered how oltcji she had taken out her 
pencil and couated up these savings in a 
triumphant sum, drawing a little frame- 
work of vines about it, and presenting it 
to him with her joyous little chuckle, tflie 
scarcely glanced at the money now. But 
he would try her further. 

" 1 cannot use it for the mortgage. 
Stouch refuses to pay the back salary." 

" Then the mortgage will be foreclosed 
to morrow? And you will lose your home?" 
She came suddenly close to him, her face 
colorless, her dark eyes wet and full of 
pity. Not love. He was not deceived. 

No wonder she had some little compas- 
sion for the man in whose bosom she had 
lain years, on this n'ght when she meant 
to flv from him. " Poor old Sam !" 

" i'he loss of the house matters little to 
us now !" 

" Why, I thought your heart was bound 
up in it." She paused suddenly— a keen 
suspicion flashing into her face. " What 
else have you lost?" 

For a moment there was silence, the 
husljand and wife looking steadily at each 
other, the oil lamp burning with uncer- 
tain yellow flashes between them. " I do 
not know," he said at last, in as quiet a 
tone as though replying to an ordinary 
question, " what there is left to me. There 
is nothing on G'">d's earth that I can call 
my own !" 

She did not answer by a word; but 
stoml motionless, with the same penetrat- 
ing, doubtfui look fixed on him. Now, 
Mary was not naturally a reticent woman; 
all her emotions bubbled straight to the 
surface. She had been a gay, giddy girl; 
and now. when she was a mother, she kept 
the house alive with what her husband 
censured as a most unmatronly light- 
heartedness— singing, jesting, laughing 
most of the time, and washing' away any 
trouble in a shower of tears. Her immo- 
bility now proved how deep his thnist had 
wounded her. 

" You've nobody in the world I No- 
body I Not even me," she said, slowly, at 
last. She turned to the window, putting 
her hand, for support, on an old chair that 
stood there. It was a worn and shabby 
chair : but she hail nursed both of the 
children in it ; Jackey and little Jenny — 
Jenny, who was dead, who would never 
lie on her breast again. Did she remem- 
ber ? She looked at it, and then at him 



for a moment ; and then, without a word, 
turned away and left the room. 

He knew that she would never enter it 
again. It was strange hciw many of these 
intuitions, amounting to certainties, came 
to him to-night. He thought that pain, 
in this great crisis of his lite, had given 
him a spiritual cleatness of insight. 
Another person might have suggested 
that the devil helped him. 

It was only seven o'clock ; there were 
two hours yet to pass before the end. He 
sat by the fire, pushingtL e poker between 
the bars, looking arounl liim. There was 
nothing in the cheaplyiurnished, pretty 
chamber that had not to-night a terrible 
meaning for him. He remembered when 
he had brought that very chair home, two 
or three weeks after Jack was bom ; 
and, lifting Mary out of l»ed, had placed 
her in it, and laid her baity in her arms. 

That was only six years ago; yet he 
thought ofhimselfthen as but a boy. What 
a perpetual frolic they m8.de of life then ! 
Hard at work and miaert^ly poor ; but 
joking away all wearinens or want — full 
of joy and content the world was; how 
many friends they had then • 

He had learned since to see things dif- 
ferently. When he set hisieart on pay- 
ing off that mortgage, it s*emed to sud- 
denly open his eyes to tlie seriousness of 
life. It affected his religion. He began 
to see faults in the old friaids who were 
in the habit of dropping; m every day, 
finding Mary's house so pfcasant ; he be- 
gan to fear his own and Ii:8 wife's spirit- 
ual character would suffer from contact 
with them. One by one he had driven 
them off. As he stinted tad saved more 
and more to gather this noney, his ideas 
of duty hardened. He hid grown old and 
grave, while Mary remiined the same 
cheerful, happy-tempered girl. 

To-night, for the first time, a dull 
doubt came to him whether he had not 
been to blame — her p<;ipetual good- 
humor, her eager interest in people about 
her, her singing, her noity romps with 
Jack— all had seemed gidd/ and trivial to 
him ; he had rebuked her ncessantly for 
them. "It was a solemn thing to 'live; 
who could go dancing ove: graves ?" had 
come to be a proverb wiili him. Could 
he have driven her from him? Driven 
her to a man whose tem perament suited 
her own ? 

He was standing before a looking-glass, 
and he could not help comparing his own 
commonplace, gloomy hce, with its 
stubby black beard, to the gay, winning 
countenance that had won aer from him. 
He put his hand up to hide the face 
from himself. 

"I loved her," hesaid, quietly ; thinking 
that if she had known iiow much, she 
would have forgiven him. He sat down 
again. Searching again for miserable se- 
crets in the tire. He had become a wiser 
man since he had been ill. Sitting, staring 
day after day into the 'jmbers, he had 
learned how utterly hollow the world 
was, how treacherous were men, and 
faithless were women. Nothing was 
true but Q,(A ; and as God, to Sam Bender, 
meant his own narrow notions of duty, 
there was nothing to lift him out of the 
slough in the thought ; thiirc was nothing 
in it cither to check him in the slow, 
subtle madness that nerred him to his 
present purpose. 

What maddening fancies those two 
hours brought to the unhappy man, it is 
needless for us to know. 

The house remained very quiet. When 
Jackey's bed-time came, he heard his 
mother brinjo^ the child to the door, 
and opened it for him to-enter. But he 
would not look at the litiJe fellow in his 
white night-gown, who stood pulling at 
his coat. Beside him, on the mantle-shelf, 
lay the pistol ready for use. He ceuld 
not touch or look at tho child, but mo- 
tioned him away, turning his back on 
hira. 

Eight o'clock came. Ho heard his wife 
come again t.o the door, (joftly listening. 
He remained quite still. She should 
think him asleep. " By nine o'clock all 
would be safe," was part nf her plan. 

The clock in the hail rang out half-past 
eight. Nine ! Bender took up the pistol, 
and, concealing it in his breast, lefl the 
chamber. Passing the door of the child's 
room he laid his hand on the wood, with 
a sudden, passionate tenderness, as though 
it had been the boy himself, " Jackey ! 
Jackey!" he cried. To-morrow the child 
would be alone— without father or mother ! 
It might have been diffcreit. 

But it was too late now. He went 
down the stairs, and entered a small un- 
lightcd room adjoining the parlor. 

In another moment there was a roll of 
wheels on the street, a carriage stopped at 
the door, and then there was a low ring 
at the bell. 

"They carry the matter boldly!" he 
muttered. Whatever agoiy of pain the 
old love that would not be stifled had cost 
him to-night, was over now ; an impla- 
cable madness seized him -the fury with 
which the hound pants the moment before 
it falls upon its prey. They were in his 
power. 

He crept nearer to the door ; held it 
ajar, his hand upon the lo<;k. He heard 
Crompton enter, and the next moment 
the soft rustle of Mary's dress. He could 
not distinguish her words, but the tones 
of her voice made him shudder. Not for 
years had they thrilled with. such nervous, 
trembling joy as now. She laughed once, 
a low, hysterical laugh not far from tears. 
Crompton spoke in a whi8[)er. Once she 
raised her voice a little. 

" You do not know what to-day is to 
me ! I have waited for it for years !" 

Bender raised his hand — his finger was 
on the trigger. He pushed the door; but 
before it opened, Mary left the parlor, go- 
ing lightly up stairs. She bad apparently 
forgotten something for her flight. 

He stood waiting, her steps sounded 
above him. When she Ehould re-open 
the door would be his time. 

She was on the stairs. One moment 
more — then — she broke into the verse of 
an old song ; an old silly habit of hers to 
sing when her heart was full : 

"Saetrue his heart, sae pmooth hlsspeeclL, 

Hi« breath like caller air ; 
IIi« very -tep ba^ muitic in't 

As h« comes up the stair. 
For there's nae lack aboat tlie house. 

There's nae luck at a', 
There'f little pleasure in the house 

When my gndeman's awa'." 

It was hi» song. He had liked it best in 
their old courting days ; ht had made her 
sin^ the children to sleep '^vith it always. 

The pistol dropped from his hand. "She 
is true ! My God ! she is tiue 1" 

H'? 3too<l there, for how ion ; he n«ver 
knew. He heard the low murmur of their 
voices. The devil, be suri^ did not leave 
him altogether. 

• He fancied her hand in Crompton's — 
their lips meeting. Bat ttic weapon lay 
at bis feet untouched. 

Why should he not at iieast open the 
door ? He had a right to their secret, 
whether guilty or not. The man trembled. 
Great drops of sweat wrung out on hi« 
forehead. 



" She is my 'wife. She is a true woman. 
Though she kill me, yet I will trust in 
her." Yet there was nothing to fight back 
the devil of suspicion but that cheery old 
song ! 

The hall-door opened and shut at last. 
There were hurried voices outside, and 
then the carriage rolled away. Was she 
gone? 

He thrust the pistol in his breast and 
opened the door. Mary stood there, her 
face flushed, tears in her eyes, folding up 
a sirip of paper. When &\g saw hira, 
she sprang forward, and hugged him 
close. 

" The money ! the money !" she sobbed. 
" For the mortgage ! " crying and laugh- 
ing, till she cried again ; telling him be- 
tween times that she made it — she — in her 
usual tumultuous fashion. " Couldn't^he 
understand ? " 

" No, I don't understand," he said, soth- 
ing and petting her as he had forgotten to 
do for many a long day. "I have been 
more dull than 5'ou know, Mary. But it's 
over now, thank God." 

" It was all my drawing, you know, Sam. 
My one talent, as you* used to call it. 
When you were so hard pressed two 
years ago, I thought I might turn it to ac- 
count. I went to the ' Academy of De- 
sign.' And I did turn it to account— in 
designing.' Don't you understand me 
now ? Friend Matthew Saul said I had 
a very pretty gift, indeed. Everybody 
was anxious to help me. It's such a friend- 
ly world, Sam," creeping closer to "invcL 
_ " Is it, Mary ? Perhaps so. God knows." 
" So they took me into the establish- 
ment, and paid me for designing new pat- 
terns for gas-fixtures. Ten dollars a stone. 
That was two years ago. And I have not 
drawn the money till today. I heard — 
(taking breath, and speaking slowly), that 
you were not to receive your back pay. "So 
I went to Mr. Crompton this afternoon 
and asked for a settlement He is the 
business-man, and so considerate and 
kind ! I always thought how much alike 
you were, and what good friends you 
would be, when you knew him. It wasn't 
pay-day, and it took some time to make 
out my account. But he offered to bring 
the money himself to-night, that I might 
give it to you as a surprise in the morning. 
And he did bring it, and there is enough 
to pay off the mortgage ; and now have 
you nothing, and nobody you can call your 
own — not even me ?" 

Sam Bender only held his wife close to 
his breast and kissed her. She was so 
used to his silence — when he was deeply 
moved — that she did not heed it. 

" You thought me brutal — mad to- 
night, Mary?" 

" Bless your dear old miserable face ! 
how could I be so silly ? You have been 
ill and nervous, and the disappointment 
to-day was more than you could bear. I 
understood it all ! I sent Jackey in, think- 
ing he would comfort you. Shall we go 
and tell Jackey about the mortgage?" 
anxiously. 
"I doubt if he would understand." 
" Perhaps not," looking blank. "Though 
Jackey understands a great many things 
that would surprise you. He's a very 
wise child. Who can that be so late ? Mr. 
Crompton's carriage again !" 

The door opened and the handsome 
Irishman entered with a lady on his arm. 
He blushed a little as he glanced down at 
her, laughing and looking handsomer 
than ever. " I asked leave, Mrs. Bender, 
you remember, once, to make known my 
promised wife to you ? I have brought 
her to-night. She has an errand to your 
husband which, she fencies, will not 
wait." 

The words came to Bender like far-off, 
pleasant sounds in a dream. How bright 
the fire glowed ! What a cordial, whole- 
some riu^ there was in the man's voice ! — 
a fellow it would be good to know. The 
girl's face, too, was sweet and friendly ; 
he had seen it before, in some pleasant 
time which he could not remember. But 
there was no woman who would not look 
dark and dim beside Mary. Where had 
she hidden that tender, glowing beauty 
all these many years ? The very familiar 
room had a look which it used to wear 
when the ftrst glamor of their married 
life made everything^about them mysteri- 
ous and bright. 

Was that old time come again? 

Crompton's cheerful, ruddy face was 
before him. " I am so glad to have the 
chance of shaking you by the hand. I 
have been waiting for it a long time." 

Sam took the hand and shook it heartily. 

" Mrs. Bender, this is Miss Stouch, who 
hopes she will not bear that name a month 
longer." 

The fair, "calm-looking beauty took 
Mary's hand and then kissed her, after the 
manner ol women. " I've heard all about 
the mortgage and the secret," she whis- 
pered. " Was it not delicious ? But I 
have a message for your husband. Papa 
bade me say to you, Mr. Bender," turning, 
with a business-like look, to Sam, " that 
he has been ill for several weeks — that 
horrid rheumatism it is ; and be had to 
leave the business almost entirely in the 
hands of Mr. Morris, who will make mis- 
takes sometimes. He is so sorry that 
there was one in yours, and that your 
rightful salary was detained. He begged 
me to hand you this letter." 

"The salary is not due," said Sam, 
stiffly. " Mr. Morris will tell you that." 

** Mr. Morris has no authority to speak 
for us," the young lady said haughtily. 
" It is not the custom of our house to make 
deductions in case of sickness." 

"It is the best policy," said Mary, quiet- 
ly. " A house loses ■othing by generous 
dealing. At least, not with men like my 
husband." 

Bender stood hesitating "How did 
your father know ?" 

" Oh, it was that little creature, Joe 
Houston, who told me. Where in all the 
world is the man ? He came with us— so 
ridiculous, Mrs. Bender ! But the best 
fellow in the world ! The tears were ac- 
tually in his eyes when he told me how 
unjustly your husband had been treated. 
Oh, here he is !" 

"Here I am !" Joe came in with a skip 
and a flourish. " Here we all are, Sam. 
God bless you, boy ! Just like a scene in 
a play. It's a jolly good world after all, 
now, isn't it ? What a l>ad humor you 
were in with it to-day, though, to be sure? 
You look as if you were cured now" — in 
an undertone, where Bender stood apart 
with his wife. 

" Are you cured ?" she said, softly touch- 
ing him. 

" By an old song," he said. " gometime 
I will tell you all, Mary. But let me hear 
your songs and your laugh every day. 
You do not know from what they have 
saved me." 

He stood looking at them talking to 
gether, a smile on his lips, but his eyts 
dim as a man's seldom are in this world : 
thinking of the son^, and of how many 
messengers He had in this world, and how 
none of them ever failed in its errand. —

Almost a Swing. 

One Saturday, three little girls were 
about to put up a swing somewhere — 
they didn't know exactly where. They 
had thirty cents to buy a rope with, and 
the day was before them. On Monday, 
their cousin was coming in from the 
country, to spend the atXernoon with 
them, aud it would be " so grand," they 
said, to have the swing already. Just as 
they were about starting to buy the rope, 
in carae their brother Benjamin. "Pooh!'' 
he exclaimed, 'when he had heard all 
about it ; " how can girls make a swing ? 
Leave it to me. On Monday morning, 
I'll put it up for you in a jiffy." 

" Do it now," coaxed the girls. 

" Can't," answered Ben, " I'm going to 
the library with Bill Saunders. Go, 
spend your money for something else. 
I'll manage roi)e and everything on Mon- 
day, before school." And off ran Ben 
with his hands in his pockets. 

" Isn't it splendid to be a boy !" said the 
littlest girl, Susie, looking after him in 
great admiration. 

Well, early on Monday morning, Ben 
sprang out of bed and dressed himself in 
a hurry, whistling with an air of great 
importance as he did so. Then he rushed 
off to get a fine long rope that he remem- 
bered having seen somewhere — it might 
have been in the woodshed, or the garret, 
or in some of the barrels, in the back- 
kitchen area. But it wasn't in any of 
these places, and time was flying ; so he 
ran to the kitchen to beg Norah for a 
strong clothes-line that he could double 
for the swing. 

" Arrah ! is it a bit of me clo's-line that 
you re after want in' this time? Sorra a 
bit I've got fo( the likes of yous," answer- 
ed that young lady indignantly. "Sure an' 
what— '^' 

But Ben, nothing daunted, concluded 
he would just run out to the back yard 
while she was finishing her speech, and 
look for something that would do for a 
swing-board. Unfortunately, all the 
boards were so long and so full of nails 
that Ben had to have a claw-hammer and 
saw before he could do anything. There 
were no hauimer and saw in his tool-chest 
fit to work with ; so he ran with all his 
might to borrow Bill Saunders'. Bill 
Saunders said he was quite welcome to use 
any tool of his he could find, but for 
his part be had no idea where in the world 
that hammer and saw could be. 80, Ben 
rummaged in Bill's tool-room, in a half- 
whistling, half-breathless way, as if he 
was sure of finding them, until he sud- , 
denl v thought that his father might start ' 
for tlown-town before he had asked him 
whether he could hang the swing from the 
apple-tree in the back yard. In this case, 
there was nothing to do but to rush off, 
obtain the desired permission, and then 
run back again to look for the tools. Bo, 
Ben flew home, but his father had eaten 
breakfast and gone. 

" O dear !" he exclaimed. " But never 
mind, the big beam in the garret will do 
— nobody'll care about that,'" 

" Come eat your breakfast, Ben I" called 
out his mother. 

Ben swallowed a few mouthfuls in a pro- 
digious hurry, looked at the clock, saw he 
bi^ just ten minutes before school time, 
rushed back to Bill Saunders', and in hunt- 
ing for the hammer and saw, found an 
iron ring. 

"Wonder if I couldn't do something; 
with this?" he panted. " If I only had a 
mate to it and a couple of hooks, it would 
be grand ! Hi ! there i» a ring in the bar- 
rel in our cellar." So off he scampered to 
the cellar, and there wasn't any ring 
there. 

" Bother !" exclaimed Ben. " But that's 
nothing. I needn't have hooks and rings 
at all. I'll just tie the rope over the beauL" 

" But you ean't" said one of the girls 
anxiously ; " the big boards are close down 
on it" 

" Whew ! that's so," cried Ben, as he 
scampered pell-mell out of the hoose. 
" I'll run and get an augur and bore holes 
in the beam." 

Soon he came back. He had found the 
augur, but there wasn't any point on it. 

" It's school time, Ben !" called out his 
sister. " Tou must go neht off; ma says 
so. Is the swing ready ? 

" Not quite," called out Ben cheerily ; 
",but I've done all I could about it." 

And so he had— poor fellow ! The eirla 
'Were sadly disappointed, but they cotiWn't 
possibly be provokcni at such a dear, good, 
obliging brother as Ben. His mother, 
who had slyly taken notice of all that was 

ifoing on, felt that it would proye quite a 
eSBon to Ben, showing him the adrantaffe 
of keeping things in order and in their 
right places. It's not in the least likely 
that it did, however.— JSiwrtA and Home,

MISCELLANEOUS. 



A NOVEMKKR AFrER>00>. 

ET REBECCA HARDING DAVIS 

The wind off the Delaware was keen. 
It reddened the noses of the pretty young 
j^irl.s hurrying liotne up Chestnut street, 
and brighteued their eyes ; their plaid 
cloaks iin<l «;arlet plumes fluttered; the red 
sun.sot glittered nn the windows ; people 
c-ilitid gayly to each other as they passed ; 
out of every urea wimlow came savory 
whitTs of dinner. The world to .Sam 
IJendi-r had never seemed more .insulting- 
ly g<>(«l humortd. 

" How d'ye like this blow, Sam? Smells 
winU-rish, eh?" 

" How goes it. Bender?" 

" What's the good news, Sam ?" 

Bender turned at thi«. It was little 
Joe Houston, one of his fellow clerks, 
wiio luid cJHpped hiiu on the back. 

'Miooduews? no good news," turning 
grutlly away. Yet he wished the fantastic 
little fellow would stay with him. He felt 
terribly tdone — ;is he had never done be- 
fore in all his life— things had reached 
such a njirrow strait with hira to-da)-. 

"Tut, tut, Bender! Voure morbid 
.''inrc you've been sick. Do you think 
you're the fir.^t man that's had typhoid ?" 

I've lost more than health. I find to- 
day Stouch stopped my salary after the 
lir.Ht week." 

" Win-w ! But, after all, what's money, 
1> )y .' Can -sonlid du.st make the 'bosom's 
lord sit lighter on his throne?'" tapping 
his gciu ly little waistcoat theatrically. 
** Anyhow, I don't believ« Stouch knew 
anything about it. It's that cursed old 
Morris." 

" What does that matter? It's gone. I 
hav(! been .^ving for yoars to pay olF the 
mortgage on our house. I'll have to take 
the money to clear off the debts of the 
last three months, and the mortgage falls 
due to-morrow." 

i v" That'a bad luck, indeed ! Such a 
snug little hoiisv, too! How long have 
you livd ther*, Sam?" 

** I was born in it. It's the Bender home- 
stead. I've been saving ever since I was 
marric'l, ti) pay off that mortgage. But 
now— ■' 

** Miry's done her share of saving, loo." 

B;'nder was silent a momunt. " I have 
no fault to fled with my wife," ho said, 
Coldly. 

" N\) chance of renewal !" 

" None. He is glad of the chance to 
forecl.'v^e." 

" Too bad, t<H) bad I" lie was chewing 
his sandy mustache. Joe was always 
Hdgetty and in motion "There's Kitty ! 
Sloiica cnuing now. She's a brick of a ' 

fjirl ! Know her r It would be worth a fel- 
ow's while to cut in there, hey? If you've 
nothing more to aiy, I'll join" her, Sam,'' 
his eager fiice growing as red as his hair as 
the yuing lady came near. 

" I've nothing more to say." 

"'Bye, then!" touching his cap and 
skipping off to the side of the larg*. calm- 
eyed blonde who was abreast of them. 
Her heavy, lu>*trous silk brushed against 
Sam as .she brushed by. When Houston 
joined her he spoke eagerly, motioning 
back to Sam; then they both laughed. 
>V hat had indc.ced Bender to make a" con- 
fidant of t lie man? He cursed his own 
fr.lly, looking after him m he went skip- 
ping along, light a.s a grasshopper. Yet 
he used tu think Joe was soft-hearted as 
a woman. But what did it matter to any 
man that he sIo«kI there ruined to dav, 
the patient toil of years swept away in 
one blow? What did the worUI care? Or 
ti^xl?— if there were a <;(.d. He' lo«^ked 
for a few minutes stolidly over the heads 
of the gay, moving crowd into the cloudy 
sky. 

Only a year ago Sam had been a rigid 
church member, teaching a class of boys 
in the Sunday-.««ht>ol. lie tried t > teach 
them to trust in a living Christ, to trust 
in each other; constantly srmwing strong- 
er himself ftom the teaching. Now — 

It was not the loss of money. But 
that M.>iry should have turned from him. 

He walked down the street, with his 
hea I on his breast. Then he came shiwly 
b.ack to the di^or of Saul's ware-ro«ims. In 
a few minutes he could know the worst, 
and lu' would not shirk it. 

He did not remember ever to have no- 
ticed this placf pai:;icularlT before. It 
was a seven storied, white marble building 
— the ware-ri>oto9 ab<ive. and the ground 
floor occupied as a sale deparrmeni. The 
manufacture was exclusively that of gas 
fljctures. 

The windows, beside one of which he 
stood, were filK J with costly bronzes ; the 
lof\y ceiling of the nx-^m within glittered 
with chandeliers and lu-slers. Two or 
three of these great gewgaws would have 

fiaid for his home,' he thought, bitterly, 
t was strange tl^at, at that moment, when 



he was waiting to know if his wife were 
true or false to him, the loss ot the home 
should have recurred to him. But it had 
become, through long years of w.aiting, <^f 
penny-saving and self-denial, a mania with 
Bender. 

'* Saul, Crompton & Saul " — he read the 
name of the firm over and over. The 
Sauls were merchant princes— Hicksite 
Friends. He knew their stately houses 
out on Locust street. It was Crompton 
whom Morris, the overseex, had told him, 
with so meaning a sinde, w.is a gay fellow, 
" not to be trusted with so pretty a wife 
as your's, Bender." 

It was only this morning that Morris 
had told him this, when he had crept down 
to the office for the first time after liis 
three months' illue.«8. He felt, when he 
opened the office door, as if U were the 
gho.e* of Sam Bender who was going in, 
the strength was so drained out of his 
lx)dj'. Then he had, for a long time, 
noticed the change in Mary — how pre-oc- 
cnpievl she was, silent, going about the 
house with her thoughts far off. He had 
n<it failed to note her long absences, even 
when he was still ill, and needed, or 
thought he needed, her constant care. 

'] his thing had worked a deep change 
in hira. Sam Bendt r was not the man to 
ask questions or chatter over his jealousy 
or wounded love. He only put his wife 
coldly from him, a little sp.ice, and wait- 
eii. At the most he fancied that she had 
grown wearied of the sick-room and sick 
man. But when she was put away from 
him, the soul seemed to grow weak in his 
wwik bixly. They had been a peculiarly 
loving husband and wife. 

That mtjrning, Morris had told him first 
of the stoppage of his salary. " Very 
sorry, ^Mr. Bonder ; glad to have you back 
again in the works. But the salary only 
went on for one week. Very true, Mr. 
Stouch has been in the habit of continuing 



back pay with some old retainers. But 
we are drawing in, sir, drawing in. The 
money market never was so tight." 

It was, as Bender walked away from the 
d*iik, that Morris called him back, and 
iitked him about Mary. "A particular 
friend of young Crompton's, eh?" 

" My wile does not know Mr. Crompton, 
nor do I." 

" No ? Better if you did, then," with a 
serious look. " Mrs. Bender does. I 
meet them sauntericg along in the even- 
ing together frequently. Crompton's an 
attractive fellow. No wonder women 
like him for a friend. Irish, you knf)w ; 
gay, handsome, genial. Too attractive to 
be trusted with as pretty a woman as 
your wife, Bender, if you'll allow me to 
say it." 

** I will not allow you to s>iy it, Mr 
Morri.s. You do not know ray Mary, and 
are not capable (»f judging her. For 
my part, I am very glad if she has made 
a pleasant friend. 

Morris laid down his pen and came out- 
siiie ot the desk railing. "Now, don't be 
offended and sulky, lad," drawing him 
aside. " I'm an older man than you. I 
know women better. They are nervous 
and magnetic, especially high spirited, 
delicat'i women like your Mary, if that's 
her name. They grow tired of the jog- 
trot lif>! at home, and the dull, daily 
talks with their husbands. They pine for 
some repetition of the old romantic, love- 
making day.s. So they form a platonic 
friendship. That's the worst I ever sus- 
pected of your wife — a platonic friend- 
sliip. But if she were my wife," em- 
phatically, "I would as lief another man 
kissed her lips as paltered in that fashion 
with her heart." 
" I am not a!raid." Coldly. 
" Of course not. Oh. certainly not! I 
am sorry I mentioned it." 

" On the contrary, I am obliged to you 
for your interest in me. But you are mis- 
taken." 

" Well, gotxl day. Bender. You'll bo on 
hand to-morrow ? By the way, though, 
it was odd, now, that Mrs Beniler did not 
mention Crompton to you ?" 

He was not angry with Morris, though 
he hail tried to blind hira as he did. The 
Olid man wanted to save him — and her. 

He did not go home again, though he 
had promised Mary to be back by ntnin. 
He told her he would bring the back sal- 
ary with him, in time to pay off the press- 
ing bills that afternoim. He would draw 
the money fraui the savings bank, too, to 
eltar the mortgage. But, on leaving 
Morris, ke had gouo wandering aimlessly 
about the streets, out to Fairmountatlast, 
down between the great wheels, over 
which the river rushed with a deafening 
sound. It would be so ea.sy to end il all ! 
But Bender was a slow, piilegmalic man, 
not apt to be moved by any sudden temp- 
tation. 

He came back to Chestnut street in the 
afternoon. Young Ward met him, one of 
the clerks of the savings bank. " Hello ! 
Sam. You told me you ^raeant to draw 
that little pile of j-ours to duy. Bank's 
ju.sl closing. If you want it come along." 
*' Yes, I suppose so," following him. 
" Going to clear your mortgage, eh ? 
That's . clever. Well, there you are," 
counting out the notes and smiling over 
the counter. Sam smiled Ijack at him. 
Then he went out, and down to Saul A- 
Cronvpttm's He would meet her there, il 
It was true: the devil wbiipered that 
into his ear as a certainty. He had been 
standing by the window for an hour when 
Joe Houston passed. 

Pe-ople wenl in and out of the show- 
rooms ; but Mary's slight figure, in the 
well worn brown suit, was not among 
them. He peeretl in now aud then 
through the shining vista of gilt work and 
colored glass, to -ee Crompton He would 
know him at 1 he first sight, he knew — 
" tall, genial and handsome." There was 
no one like h'lm among the dapper littU 
clerks. It began to grow dark at last. He 
went in. 
"Is Mr. Crompton in?" 
"In his private oitice. sir. Second floor. 
Will you walk up ?" 

One of the clerks was coming down the 
stairs. " Ue is engaged just now, Phil. 
A kdy." 

" Will you wait sir," said the first. " Sit 
down," pushing a stool toward him, see- 
ing how white and weak he was. 
" ril go outside, into the air." 
" You may miss Mr. Crompton. He 
comes down the private stairs ot^en on 
the other street Shall I send your name 
up? " 
" No." 

He went |out to the other street He 
knew Crompton would come down the 
private stairs. He knew who would be 
with him. The d<x)r of this side entrance 
is narrow ; there was a fruittrer's £taU 
next to it. Standing la the shndow. Ben- 
der was almost concealed from view. 

Half an hour passed. The State House 
clock St nick five. He moved to go away. 
After all, it might be but a devilish dream. 
Mary was at home, iloubtlees, watching 
at the window for him, with Jackey m her 
arms. 

The door opened. There was a mo- 
ment's pause, and then a man's voice : 



" Take care ! The stairs are dark. Give 
me j'our hand." 

A ringing, rich voice, such as would be- 
long to a genial, love-making Iri.'ihman, 
soft«ned now to a very tender inflection. 
Then there was a quick, light step upon 
the stairs. Bender had learned to know it 
years ago. They came out together on 
the pavement. Mary's dress almost 
touched her husband ; ft was her one good 
dre.xs, the brown sUk so long kept for 
church. She had a bit of blue chenille, 
too, twisted in and out of the coils of her 
black hair. It was many a day since she 
had taken that trouble to look " fair in his 
eyes ! They spoke together in a low tone, 
Crompton urging something which she 
faintly resisted. Ue prevailed at last, 
though. 

" I will be there at nine, then ?" raising 
his voice. 
"At nine if you will," she said gently. 
" Will it be safe ?" 

"Oh, quite safe. He goes to bed early 
since his sickness. Poor old Sam !" with 
a nervous laugh. 

" Shall I not go home with yon now? It 
grows late." 
" No, no. We may be seen together." 
He held her hand in his a moment, and 
then she was gone. Crompton stood st411, 
looking alter her. Bender came up the 
pavement and faced him. His face was 
S(i ghastly and menacing that the younger 
man drew back, and the air died on his 
lips which he was softly humming. The 
low sunlight fell on his elegantly dressed 
figure as he stood there — on the flushed, 
handsome face, with its full, reddish beard 
and hair. 
Sam halted, and then went on. 
" Poor devil, I wonder whether women 
or whisky have driven him mad," thought 
Cninipton, beginning his tune again a 
moment titter. 

Bender went down toward Fourth street, 
with slow, resolute steps. His old strength 
.seemed to have come back to him in the 
last half hour. Stopping at a large board- 
ing house he stmt in for Ward, the bank 
clerk. They had been old chums in Bend- 
er's bachelor days. 

" Lend me your revolver, Horace ; I'll 
be done witn it by to-morrow. Mine is 
broken and I never bought another." 

" Of course." Ward vanished and re- 
appeared in a moment. " What are you 
going to shoot, Sam— rats?" 

Bender took the pistol and turned 
away without speaking. He had been 
deaf and blind to every sieht or sound of 
the streets since Mary's voice rung in his 
ears. After he was gone his manner re- 
curred to Ward as strange and unpleasant 
" I believe I'll go after him." he thought 
But dinner was ready, and he turned 
back into the dark entry ; and, being a 
feather-headed young fellow, forgot the 
whole mailer speedily. 

The pistol was not charged. Bender 
stopped at a shop on the way up the street, 
and loaded it carefully. It was nearly 
dark when he reached his own steps. 

Mary opened the door before he could 
touch it She wore yet her silk dre.ss and 
her pretty collar of fine lace ; her hair 
was curled about her face ; her cheeks 
were pink and hot ; her litiuid eyes bril- 
liant with a new fire. He saw it all. 
What was il that Morris had said about 
their hunger for a repetition of the old 
love-making days? She put up her mouth 
to be kissed, as usual, and when he passed 
her, hurried in after him, taking his hand. 
" Poor old papa ! He's tired ! Go in, 
Jackey ; don't worry father now." 

So skilled in deception already! She 
was leading him into the dining-room, 
where supper was sprer.d ; but he put her 
quietly aside and passed up to his own 
room. She followed him. " You are 
worn-out. Why did you stay in the 
works all day?" coming behind him and 
putting her white hands on his shoulder 
as he sal staring into the fire. When he 
did not answer, she drew his head back 
on her breast and kissed his lips. 

That kiss set fire to the smoldering mad- 
ness within the man ; but he was always 
quiet and grave. He looked her steadily 
in the eyes. How beautiful the face was 
that bent over him ! Some dainty Ariel 
of a 3|iiril looked out of it which he had 
never conquered or owned. He saw that 
clsarly now. 

She turned away from hira at hist, and 
busied herself about the room — went tlown 
and brought him a cup of tea. The farce 
of playing the wife over, she became ab- 
sent as was usual with her now; her 
thoughts far off. He took out the roll of 
notes and laid them down on the mantel- 
shelf. 
" There is the mortgage-money." 
" Yes." She did not brighten and Hush 
as she would once have dime. He remem- 
bered how often she had taken out her 
pencil and coumted up these savings in a 
triumphant sum, drawing a little frame- 
work of vines about it, and presenting it 
to him with her joytms little chuckle. She 
scarcely glanced at the money now. But 
he would try her further. 

" 1 cannot use it for the mortgage. 
Slouch refuses to pay the back salary." 

" Then the mortgage will be foreclosed 
to morrow? And you will lose your home?" 
She came suddenly close to him, her face 
colorless, her dark eyes wet and full of 
pity. Not love. He was not deceived. 

No wonder she had some little compas- 
sion for the man in whose bo84jm she had 
lain years, on this n'ght when she meant 
to fly from him. " Poor old Sam !" 

" The loss of the house matters Utile to 
us now !" 

" Why, I thought your heart was bound 
up in it" She paused suddenly— a keen 
suspicion flashing into her face. " What 
el.se have you lost ?" 

For a moment there was silence, the 
husljand and wife looking steadily at each 
other, the oil lamp burning with uncer- 
tain yellow flashes between them. " I do 
not know," he said at last, in as quiet a 
tone as though replying to an ordinary 
question, " what there is left to me. There 
is nothing on G'xi's earth that I can call 
my own !" 

She did not an.twer by a word ; but 
stooii motionless, with the same pent'trat- 
ing, doubtful look fixeti on him. Now, 
Mary was not naturally a reticent woman; 
all her emotions bubbled straight to the 
surface. She had been a gay, giddy girl; 
and now, when she was a mother, she kept 
the house alive with what her husband 
censured as a most unmatronly light- 
heartedness— singing, jesting, laughing 
mc«t of the time, and washing away any 
trouble in a shower of tears. Htr immo- 
bility now proved how deep his thnist had 
wounded her. 

" You've nobody in the world I No- 
body : Not even me," she said, slowly, at 
last She turned to the window, putting 
her hand, for support, on an old chair that 
stood there. It was a worn and shabby 
chair ; but she hail nursed both of the 
children in it ; Jackey and little Jenny — 
Jenny, who was dead, who would never 
lie on her breast again. Did she remem- 
ber ? She looked at it, and then at him 



for a moment ; and then, without a word, 
turned away and left the room. 

He knew that she would never enter it 
again. It was strange how many of these 
intuitions, amounting to certainties, came 
to him to-night He thought that pain, 
in this great crisis of his life, had given 
him a spiritual clearcess of insight. 
Another person might have suggested 
that the devil helped him.. 

It was only seven o'clcck ; there were 
two hours yet to pass before the end. He 
sat by the fire, pushingtbe poker between 
the l»rs, looking arouni liim. There was 
nothing in the cheaply-furnished, pretty 
chamber that had not to-iight a terrible 
meaning for him. He remembered when 
he had brought that very chair home, two 
or three weeks after Jack was born ; 
and, lifting Mary out of bed, had placed 
her in il, and laid her baVy in her arms. 

That was only six years ago; yet he 
thought of himself thenas but a boy. What 
a perpetual frolic they mivde of life then ! 
Hard at work and uiiseiably poor ; but 
joking away all wearineiss or want— full 
of joy and content the w orld was ; how 
many friends they had then 

He had learned since to sie things dif- 
ferently. When he set his ieart on pay- 
ing off that mortgage, it stemed to sud- 
denly open his eyes to the seriousness of 
life. It affected his religim. He began 
to see faults in the old fnmds who were 
in the habit of dropping in every day, 
finding Mary's house so pbasant ; he be- 
gan to fear his own and h:s wife's spirit- 
ual character would suffff from contact 
with them. One bjr one he had driven 
them off. As he stinted md saved more 
and more to gather this noney, his ideas 
of duty hardened. He h:)d grown old and 
grave, while Mary rciriined the same 
cheerful, happy-tempered girl. 

To-night, for the fint time, a dull 
doubt came to him whet)i»r he had not 
been to blame — her pe.'petual good- 
humor, her eager interest b people about 
her, her singing, her ncify romps with 
Jack— all had seemed gidd/ and trivial to 
him ; he had rebuked her ncessantly for 
them. "Ilwas a solemn thing to live; 
who could go dancing over graves ?" had 
come to be a proverb witk him. Could 
he have driven her from him? Driven 
her to a man whose temperament suited 
her own ? 

He was standing before a looking-glass, 
and he could not help comparing his own 
commonplace, gloomy hce, with its 
stubby black beard, to the gay, winning 
countenance that had won aer from him. 

He put his hand up no hide the face 
from himself. 

"I loved her," hesaid, quietly ; thinking 
that if she had known tiow much, she 
would have forgiven hini. He sat down 
again. Searching again for miserable se- 
crets in the fire. He had become a wiser 
man since he had been ill. Sitting, staring 
day after day into the embers, he had 
learned how utterly hollow the world 
was, bow treacherous vrere men, and 
faithless were women. Nothing was 
true but G(/l ; aad as God to Sam Bender, 
meant his own narrow notions of duty, 
there was nothing to lift him out of the 
slough in the thonghf ; there was nothing 
in it either to check him in the slow, 
subtle madness that nerveil him to his 
present purpose. 

What maddening fancies tho.se two 
hours brought to the un lappy man, it is 
needless for us to know. 

The house remained very quiet. When 
Jackey's bed-lime came, he heard his 
mother bring the child to the door, 
and opened it for him tr-'enter. But he 
would not look at the little fellow in his 
while night-gown, who stood pulling at 
his coal. Beside him, on the mantle-shelf, 
lay the pistol reaily for u.se. He ceuld 
not touch or look at the child, but mo- 
tioned him away, tumirig his back on 
him. 

Eight o'clock came. He heard his wife 
come again U\ the door, softly listening. 
He remained quite still. She should 
think him asleep. " By nine o'clock all 
would be safe," was part Df her plan. 

The cif)ck in the hail rang out half-past 
eight. Nine ! Bender took up the pistol, 
and, concealing il in his breast, left the 
chamber. Passing the door of the child's 
room he laid his hand on the wood, with 
a sudden, passionate tenderness, as though 
it had been the boy himself, " Jackey I 
Jackey !" he cried. To-morrow the child 
would be alone — without f ilher or mother ! 
It might have been diffen'nt. 

But it was too late now. He went 
down the stairs, and entered a small un- 
Hghted room adjoining the parlor. 

In another moment there was a roll of 
wheels on the street, a carriage stopped at 
the door, and then there was a low ring 
at the bell. 

" They carry the matter boldly !" he 
muttered. Whatever agony of pain the 
old love that would not be stifled had cost 
him to-night, was over now ; an impla- 
cable madness seized him— the fury with 
which the hound pants the moment before 
it falls upon its prey. T.aey were in his 
power. 

He crept nearer to the door ; held it 
ajar, his hand upon the lock. He heard 
Crompton enter, and th? next moment 
the soft rustle of Mary's dress. He could 
nf)t distinguish her words but the tones 
o{ her voice made him sh idder. Not for 
years had they thrilled with such nervous, 
trembling joy as now. Sle laughed once, 
a low, hysterical laugh not far from tears. 
Crompton spoke in a whimper. Once she 
raised her voice a little. 

" You do not know what to-day is to 
me ! I have waited for it for years !" 

Bender raised his hand — his finger was 
on the trigger. He pushed the door; but 
before it opened, Mary left the parlor, go- 
ing lightly up stairs. She had apparently 
foreotten something for her flight 

He stood wailing, her steps sounded 
above him. When she should re-open 
the door would be his lima. 

She was on the stairs. One moment 
more — then — she broke icito the verse of 
an old song ; an old silly tiabit of hers to 
sing when her heart was full : 

"Saetni'? his heart. ?ae !>m(K)th hi«»p«ecli, 

Uii* breath like caller air ; 
lli^ very -tep has music in't 

As be' com«e up the stair. 
For there's nae luck about .he bouse, 

There> nae luck at a'. 
There's little pleaaure In tb<ihouM 

When my guaeman'e awa'." 

It was Aw song. He hal liked it best in 
their old courting days; he had made her 
sin^ the children to sleep with it always. 

The pistol dropped from his hand. "She 
is true! My God! she is true!" 

He 8too<l there, for how Ion;; he n«ver 
knew. He heard the low murmur of their 
voices. The devil, be 8Ui», did not leave 
him altogether. 

He fancied her hand in Crompton's — 
their lips meeting. But the weapon lay 
at his feet untouched. 

Why should he not at least open the 
door ? He had a right to their secret, 
whether guilty or not. The man trembled. 
Great drops of sweat wrong out on hU 
forehead. 



" She is my wife. She is a true woman. 
Though she kill me, yet I will trust in 
her." Yet there was nothing to fight back 
the devil of suspicion but that cheery old 
song ! 

The hall-door opened and shut at last. 
There were hurried voices outside, and 
then the carriage rolled away. Was she 
gone? 

He thrust the pistol in his breast and 
opened the door. Mary stood there, her 
face flushed, tears in her eyea, folding up 
a slrip of paper. When s^e saw hira, 
she sprang forward, and hugged him 
close. 

" The money ! the money !" she sobbed. 
" For the mortgage ! " crying and laugh- 
ing, till she cried again ; telling hira be- 
tween times that she made it — she — in her 
usual tumultuous fashion. " Couldn't^he 
under-stand ? " 

" No, I don't understand," he said, soth- 
ing ami petting her as he had forgotten to 
do for many a long day. "I have been 
more dull than you know, Mary. But it's 
over now, thank God." 

" It was all my drawing, you know, Sam. 
My one talent, as you' used to call it. 
When you were so hard pressed two 
years ago, I thought I might turn it to ac- 
count. I went to the ' Academy of De- 
sign.' And I did turn it to account— in 
d*signing.' Don't you understand me 
now? Friend Matthew Saul said I had 
a very pretty gift, indeed. Everybody 
was anxious to help me. It's such a friend- 
ly world, Sam," creeping closer to him. 
_ " Is it, Mary ? Perhaps so. God knows." 

" So they took me into the establish- 
ment, and paid me for designing new pat- 
terns for gas-fixtures. Ten dollars a stone. 
That was two years ago. And I have not 
drawn the money till to-day. I heard — 
(taking breath, and speaking slo'wly), that 
you were not to receive your back pay. So 
I went to Mr. Crompton this afternoon 
and asked for a settlement He is the 
business-man, and so considerate and 
kind ! I always thought how much alike 
you were, and what good friends you 
would be, when you knew him. It wasn't 
pay-day, and it took some time to make 
out my account. But he offered to bring 
the money himself to-night, that I might 
give it to you as a surprise in the morning. 
And he did bring it, and there is enough 
to pay off the mortgage ; and now have 
you nothing, and nobody you can call your 
own — not even me ?" 

Sam Bender only held his wife close to 
his breast aud kissed her. She was so 
used to his silence — when he was deeply 
moved — that she did not heed it. 

" You thought me brutal— mad to- 
night, Mary?" 

" Bless your dear old miserable face ! 
how could I be so silly ? You have been 
ill and nervous, and the disappointment 
to-day was more than you could bear. I 
understood it all ! I sent Jackey in, think- 
ing he would comfort you, Shall we go 
and tell Jackey about the mortgage?" 
anxiously. 

"I doubt if he would understand." 

" Perhaps not," looking blank. "Though 
Jackey understands a great many things 
that would surprise you. He's a very 
wise child. Who can that be so late ? Mr. 
Crompton's carriage again !" 

The door opened and the handsome 
Irishman entered with a lady on his arm. 
He blushed a little as he glanced down at 
her, laughing and looking handsomer 
than ever. "I asked leave, Mrs. Bender, 
you remember, once, to make known my 
promised wife to you ? I have brought 
her to-night. She has an errand to your 
husband which, she fancies, will not 
wait" 

The words came to Bender like far off, 
pleasant sounds in a dream. How bright 
the tire glowed ! What a cordial, whole- 
some ring there was in the man's voice ! — 
a fellow it would be good to know. The 
girl's face, too, was sweet and friendlj' ; 
he had seen it before, in some pleasant 
time which he could not remember. But 
there was no woman who would not look 
dark and dim beside Mary. Where had 
she hidden that tender, glowing beauty 
all these many years ? The very familiar 
room had a look which it u.sed to wear 
when the flrst glamor of their married 
life made everything'about them mysteri- 
ous and bright. 

Was that old time come again? 

Crompton's cheerful, ruddy face was 
before hira. " I am so glad to have the 
chance of .shaking you by the hand. I 
have been waiting for it a long time." 

Sam took the hand and shook it heartily. 

" Mrs. Bender, this is Miss Slouch, who 
hopes she will not bear that name a month 
longer." 

The fa'r, calm-looking beauty took 
Mary's hand and then kissed her, after the 
manner ol women. " I've heard all about 
the mortgage and the secret," she whis- 
pered. " Was it not delicious ? But I 
have a message for your husband. Papa 
bade me say to you, Mr. Bender," turning, 
with a business-like look, to Sam, '"thai 
he has been ill for several weeks— that 
horrid rheumatism it is ; and he had to 
leave the business almost entirely in the 
bands of Mr. Morris, who will make mis- 
takes sometimes. He is so sorry that 
there was one in yours, and thai your 
rightful salary was detained. He begged 
me to hand you this letter." 

" The salary is not due," said Sam, 
stiffly. " Mr. Morris will tell you that" 

** Mr. Morris has no atithority to speak 
for us," the young lady said haughtily. 
" It is not the custom of our house to make 
deductions in case of sickness." 

" It is the best policy," said Mary, quiet- 
ly. " A house loses aotbing by generous 
dealing. At least, not with men like my 
husband." 

Bender stood hesitating "How did 
your father know ?" 

" Oh, it was that little creature, Joe 
Houston, who told me. Where in all the 
world is the man ? He came with us— so 
ridiculous, Mrs. Bender ! But the best 
fellow in the world ! The tears were ac- 
tually in his eyes when he told me how 
unjustly your husband had been treated. 
Oh, here he is!" 

"Here I am !" Joe came in with a skip 
and a flourish. " Here we all are, Sara. 
God bless you, boy ! Just like a scene in 
a play. It's a jolly good world after all, 
now, isn't it ? What a bad humor you 
were in with it to-day, though, to be sure? 
You look as if you were cured now" — in 
an undertone, where Jknder stood apart 
with his wife. 

" Are you cured ?" she said, softly touch- 
ing him. 

" By an old song," he said. " Sometime 
I will tell you all, Marj'. But let me hear 
your songs and your laugh every day. 
You do not know from what they have 
saved mp," 

He sto<'>d looking at them talking to 
gether, a smile on his lips, but his eyes 
dim as a man's seldom are in this world ; 
thinking of the song, and of how many 
messengers He had in this world, and how 
none of them ever failed in its errand, —

Almost a Snin?. 

One Saturday, three little girls were 
about to put up a swing somewhere — 
they didn't know exactly where. They 
had thirty cents to buy a rope with, and 
the day was before them. On Monday, 
their cousin was coming in from the 
country, to spend the afternoon with 
them, aud it would be " so grand," they 
said, to have the swing already. Just aa 
they were about starting to buy the rope, 
in came their brother Benjamin. "Pooh!" 
he exclaimed, when he had heard all 
about it ; " how can girls make a swing ? 
Leave it to me. On Monday morning, 
I'll put it up for you in a jiffy." 

" Do it now," coaxed the girls. 

" Can't," answered Ben, " I'm going to 
the library with Bill Saunders. Go, 
spend your money for something else. 
I'll manage rope and everything on Mon- 
day, before school." And off ran Ben 
with his hands in his pockets. 

" Isn't it splendid to be a boy !" said the 
littlest girl, Susie, looking after him in 
great admiration. 

Well, early on Monday morning, Ben 
sprang out of bed and dressed himself in 
a hurry, whistling with an air of great 
importance as he did so. Then he rushed 
off to get a fine long rope that he remem- 
bered having seen somewhere — it might 
have been in the woodshed, or the garret, 
or in some of tht? barrels, in the back- 
kitchen area. But it wasn't in any of 
these places, and lime was flying ; so he 
ran to the kitchen to beg Norah for a 
strong clothes-line that he could double 
for the swing. 

" Arrah ! is it a bit of me clo's-line that 
you.re after want in' this time? Sorra a 
bit I've got fo! the likes of yous," answer- 
ed that young lady indignantly. "Sure an' 
what—" 

But Ben, nothing daunted, concluded 
he would just run out to the back yard 
while she was finishing her speech, and 
look for something that would do for a 
swing-board. UiSbrlunately, all the 
boards were so long and so full of naill 
that Ben had to have a claw-hammer and 
saw before he could do anything. There 
were no hammer and saw in his tool-chest 
fit to work with ; so he ran with all his 
might to borrow Bill Saundert.'. Bill 
Saunders said he was quite welcome to use 
any tool of his he could And, but for 
his part he had no idea where in the world 
that hammer and saw could be. So, Ben 
rummaged in Bill's tool-room, in a half- 
whistling, half-breathless way, as if he 
was sure of finding them, until he sud- . 
denly thought that his father might start 
for down -town before he had asked him 
whether he could hang the swing from the 
apple-tree in the back yard. In this case, 
there was nothing to do but to rush oflf, 
obtain the desired permission, and then 
run back again to look for the tools. So, 
Ben flew home, but his father had eaten 
breakfast and gone. 

" O dear !" he exclaimed. " But never 
mind, the big beam in the garret will do 
— nobody '11 care about that,'^ 

" Come eat your breakfast, Ben !" called 
out his mother. 

Ben swallowed a few mouthfuls in a pro- 
digious hurry, looked at the clock, saw he 
hjul just ten minutes before (school time, 
rushed back to Bill Saunders', and in hunt- 
ing for the hammer and saw, found an 
iron ring. 

"Wonder if I couldn't do something 
with this?" he panted. " If I only had a 
mate to it and a couple of hooks, it would 
be grand ! Hi ! there i» a ring in the bar- 
rel in our cellar." So off he scampered to 
the cellar, and there wasn't any ring 
there. 

" Bother !" exclaimed Ben. " But that's 
nothing. I needn't have hooks and rings 
at all. I'll just tie the rope over the beam." 

" But you enn't" said one of the girls 
anxiouslj' ; " the big boards are close down 
on it" 

" Whew ! that's so," cried Ben, as he 
scampered pell-mell out of the house. 
" I'll run and get an augur and bore hole* 
in the beam." 

Soon he came back. He had found the 
augur, but there wasn't any point on it. 

"It's school time, Ben!" called out his 
sister. " You must go right off; ma sayg 
so. Is the swing ready ? 

" Not quite," called out Ben cheerily ; 
"jbut I've done all I could about it." 

And so he had— poor fellow ! The girls 
were sadly disappointed, but they couldn't 
possibly be provoked at such a dear, good, 
obliging brother as Ben. His mother, 
who had slyly taken notice of all that was 

Jroing on, felt that it would proye quite a 
eason to Ben, showing him the advantage 
of keeping things in order and in their 
right places. It's not in the least likely 
that it did, however.— JJiwrtA and Evme.

INTENTIONAL DUPLICATE EXPOSURE 





The Democratic Party. 




The New York Legislature on the 5th 
instant, by a party vote of Itt to 13 in the 
Senate, and 0-3 to 53 in the Assembly, 
p;is3eil a resolution rescinding the ratifica- 
tion of the Fifteenth Amendment matle by 
Uie last Le>^i?ilature. The iulic-itions are 
th.it the utmost strensith of the Demo- 
cratic party in Ohio will be put forth to de- 
feat the amendment there. The party 
plrttfiinn and nominations in Indiana in- 
dicate a like purpose there, if the Demo- 
cratii- parly ciu carry the State. 

These iudicati^ms of the drift of Demo- 
eratic impulse show that, as heretofore, 
the parly relies on anti-ncijro prt-judices 
and passions as the strongest, and, at pres- 
ent, the only b->nd ot oherence between 
its members. The Fifteenth Amendment 
simply gives to the black man tUrougta- 
out the L'nion the same weapon, without 
which the white man has never yet been 
able to enjoy or preaorva political freedom. 
To suppose that the black race can detend 
tlieir freedom without the ballot, or that it 
can really be free withoul th«' ballot, is to 
suppose that it is superior to the while race 
in this respect. Tlie real hostility to the 
Fifteenth Amendm'.'nt is the damn-the- 
nigger anyhow senliment, and, on tliis 
platform, the Democratic party, after go- 
ing into the rebellion upon it and getUng 
whipped upon it there, after going into 
rec(Miatruction upon it and getting whip- 
ped there, are drifting into a new cam- 
paign, not so much because they think 
the platform a good one as bccanse they 
lack the wit or opportunity to a^jree on 
any other. , 

It is settled, therefore, that at least one 
year more must bo wasted in fighting over 
issues upon which the sen?e of the 
whole people has been fully taken, and 
whi:h have been decided by their votes 
in favor of tue Kepublican party. Ou the 
eiHgle question of Kadicalism the Repub- 
lican party is about the best drilled, best 
oftlcered, moit resolute, determined, over- 
whelming, and irresistible political party 
the country has ever known. So long as 
the opposition will consent to go into the 
li^ht on that qucsiion, Republican major- 
ities will know no diminution. Begin- 
ning on the low ground that slavery 
should not go into the Territories, advanc- 
ing to the higher ground that it should 
not be made a means of strength to rebel- 
lious armies, then striking for *he naked 
right of the slave to control his own per- 
si>u and service*, then rising still again to 
the position that he should have free ac- 
cess to our courts of justice, then that he 
should have the ballot in all the rebel 
States. The Democratic parly has, by its 
refusal to make terms of peace at any 
point, compelled us to advance at last to 
universal sullrage throughout the land, on 
the broad basis of the declaration that 
" all government derives its just powers 
from the consent of the governed." On 
no other issue can we so easily preserve 
the stntus quo of Republican ascendency. 
Until this issue is settled reconstruction is 
not settled. Until reconstruction is set- 
tled the war for the Union is not won, 
and all the treasure, blood, and agony 
ot the past ten ' years are spent in 
vain. Tills is the logical popular convic 
lion. This is felt, and therefore needs not 
to be proven. But if proof were needed, 
how easy to supply it. Unless the Fif- 
t«enth Amendment pass, impartial suffrage 
rests merely on State constitutions, re- 
versible at any hour after the States are 
restored. If impartial suffrage at the 
South rests on Stale constitutions it will 
be reversed, and the colored race will sink 
again, from citizens and equal working 
men, who know their rights and dare 
maintain them, into serfs, pariahs, out- 
casts, and refugees. No Legislature of 
the Southern States, elected by white 
rotes and unrestrained in its legislation, 
will ever leave the blacks, as a class, their 
liberty. The road from denial of the bal- 
lot as the starling point, straight down to 
slavery as Uie goal, is short and straight 
The restoration of slavery is the restora- 
tion of war. All this ispl-iin; and it needs 
only the heat and agitation of a political 
campaign, conducted on this issue, to bring 
it out in its true colors as the same old 
fij^ht between Freedom, Union, and the 
Nalicnal Government on the one hand, 
and .slavery, sccessicn, anarchy, civil war, 
and national dissolution and death on the 
other. On this i.>»3ue the American people 
can and will never reverse their verdict. 
The longer the Lssue is kept up the more 
determinedly and inveterately they will 
fight for the confirmation of all past vic- 
tories, and against tlie overthrow of a 
single result of the war. — Chicago Iribune, 
Jan. II.

FARM ANI^ HOUSEHOLB 



Ratifying. 

TiiR Missouri Democrat, in 'discussing 
the question whether a State, after ra)^"y- 
ing an amendment to the National Con- 
stitution, can rescind its raliflcatioB, ad- 
vances two wcll-consideced and strong 

points, viz. : 

1 Tliat, under the Constitution, none 
but afli'-mative votes are recognized. A 
vote against latiflcation amounts to no 
more than a failure to vote at all ; and ob- 
viously a riilure of a State to vote, after 
it has once voted to ratify, cannot undo Its 
vote of ratification. 

2 That if, as the repealers contend, the 
amendment were a new compact between 
sovereiirn States, th«n it would require the 
consent of all the sovereign States to bind 
all, and not merely of three-fourths. That 
il is no% therefore, a compact between 
sovereigns, but a mere mode of takmg the 
vote of the people of a Stale on a ques- 
tion in a manner authorized by the Na- 
tional Constiiulion. That the vote de- 
rives its Yali.lity, therefore, from the Con- 
stitution of the United Sutes, and to be 
valid mu'^t be rendore4 under the provi- 
sions of that Constitution. That the Con- 
stitution of the United Slates provides for 
an aftirmative vote only, any other vote 
having no other effect than mere Bilence. 
Thftt an aflirmalive vote. Is necessarily 
counted by the National Government as 
soon as rendered, in order to ascerUin 
whether the requisite number of States 
have ratified. That, afterjbeing once given 
and counted for the amendment, the Con- 
stitution contains no further authorization 
to the Slate to act in the matter, and that 
what it may do, being thus wholly without 
authority of the National Constitution, 
is void under that instrument. 

The State of New York having once 
ratified the amendment, and transmitted 
the ratification to Washington, her powers 
are exhausted, and when, iucluding hers, 
the rt(iuisite number of votes of States are 
obtained, we believe the President wdl 
declare the amendment ratified.

Letter from the Negro Printer Who 
Worked with Brick Popieroy. 

Tallmadob, Jan. 1. 

To the Editor of tbo Cleveland Herald : 

In a late issue of your paper, you say 
that Brick Pomeroy has ?aid that he once 
worked at a case alongside «)f a negro 
printer, and says he is proud of the fact. 
Vou Uien say, "Now let us hear from the 
darkey." 

Well, sir, I am the very darkey whom 
Brick worked alongside of, and if he is 
proud of it, I must say that / mn not ; on 
the ontrary, i am ashamed of it. Brick 
was good enough in his way, but if he 
could not have that, even the devil was 
no match for him. Please remind Brick 
that ho owes me $2.70, borrowed money, 
at that, and if he is proud of any one 
thing, perhaps he yet may be proud to say, 
I (lire no negro. Who knows t If he ever 
^els in that frame of mood, he will find 
mo at Tallmadge, Summit county, Ohio. 
I am now rather crippled up, but my 
Heavenly Father knows that I would 
starve before I would again work at a 
case alongside of Brick Pomeroy. 
Very respectfully,

The Gentle Side of Stanton's Character. 



A CoNNKCTicoT broom peddler — a 

shrewd chap, from over among the steady 

habits, woiwlen clocks, schoolmasters, and 

other fixins— drove through the streets of 

Providence heavily laden with corn 

brooms. He had called at several stores 

and offered his load, or ever so small a 

portion of it; but when he wanted the 

cash, and nothing else, in payment, they 

had uniformily given him to understand 

that they had brooms enough, and that he 

might go further. At length he drove up 

to a large wholesale store on the west 

side, and once more offered his wares. ^ 

"Well, I want the broomsbadly enough, ' 

said the merchant, "but what will you 

take in pay V" 

This was a poser. The peddler was 
aching to get rid of his brooms ; he de- 
spised the very sight of his brooms ; but 
he would sooner sell a single broom for 
cash than the whole load for any other 
article— especially that which he could 
not dispose of so readily as he could 
brooms. After a moment's hesitation, 
however, he screwed his courage to the 
sticking point— it required some courage, 
after having lost his chance of selling his 
load half a dozi-n times by a similar an- 
swer—and frankly told the merchant he 
must have cash. Of course, the merchant 
protested that cash was scarce, and that 
he must purchase, if he purchased at all. 
with what he had in his store to pay with. 
He reaJlv wuntcd the brooms, and he did 
not hesitate to say so ; but the limes were 
hard, and he had notes to pay, and had 
goods that must be disposed of. 

Finallv, he said he would put the goods 
at the co'st price, for the sake of trading, 
and would lake the whole load of brooms 
which the peddler had labored so unsuc- 
cessfully at the other stores to dispose of 
" So unload the brooms," said he to the 
man from Connecticut, "and select any 
articles from my store, and you shall have 
them at cost price." 

The peddler scratched his head. There 
was an idea there, as the sequel shows 
plainly enough. 

" I tell you what it is," he answered at 
last, "just say them terms for half the 
load, and caj^h for t'other half, and I'm 
your man. Blowed ef I don't sell eout, if

The merchant hesitated a moment, but 
finally concluded the chance a good one. 
lie would be getting half the brooms for 
something that would not sell as readily ; 
as for the cost price, it was an easy gam- 
mon in regard to it. The bargain was 
struck, the brooms were brought in, and 
the cash for half of them was paid over. 

" Now, what will rou have for the re- 
mainder of your bill ?" asked the mer- 
chant. 

The peddler scratched his head again, 
and this time more vigorously. He walked 
the floor, whistled, and drummed with his 
fingers on the head of a barrel. Byand- 
by his reply came- slowly, deliberately 
and emphatically : 

" You Providence fellers are cute ; yon 
sell at cost, pretty much all of you, and

The following is related by the Hon. G. 
B. Lincoln, of Brooklyn : ^^^^ ^ ^__ „ , .. _ . 

It was on the morning of the 20lh of ' ^^"j^g ^^^ j,"^";}; ^jt^ you, I guess I'll take

ctiramcnced his advance on Chattanooga 



and L(Xikout Mountain, and when Burn 
side was hemmed in at Knoxville, that 1 1 
had occasion to call on the War Secretary. \ 
My card was sent in, and immediately Ij 
was ushered into his office and presence. 
His chair was turned from his oflice table, 
and before him, sobbing, stood a hand- 1 
some little fellow — of ten years, or there- j 
abouls— whose little hands rested in the j 
hands of the Secretary. By the con versa- j 
ti<ua betweciw them I learned that the 
lad was an orphan frpm a Western State, 
whose father had been killed in battle and 
whi^se brothers were still in the Western 
army. Sinne one had sent him to Wash- : 
ingtoB with a letter to Mr. Stanton, in 
the hope that thereby he might be made 
a "page" in the Senate or House of 
Representatives. " You shall be made a 
* page ' in the Senate, if it is possible to be

I can swear to jest what yon paid for 'em. ' 
{ And so saying, the pedler commenced 
I re-loading his brooms, and having depos- 
; ited half "of his former load, jumped on 

his cart with a regular Connecticut grin,

I impudence and his own stupidity, drove 

off in search of another cust<imer.

Of all the declarations of love, the

A NBW physiological discovery has 
been made by a young man — namely, that

One of Mark Twain's farmers bought 
some Bartlett pear trees, and the next 
season he took some of the fmit to the 
tree dealer. " What kind of pears do you 
call these ?" " Well, I dont't know ; hut- 
ton pears, perhaps." " But, they grew 
on one of the trees you sold me for a Bart- 
lett!" "Are you such a fool," was the 
dealer's convincing rejoinder, " as to sup- 
pose that a tree is going to bear Bartlett 
pears the fir.st year? " 

The latest thing out in the way of a 
novelty is a sort of a tube, all the way 
from Paris, woven out of strips of palm 
loaf. The uninitiated is requested by a 
friend to insert the forefinger of each hand 
into the ends of the tube and see if he 
can make the ends of the fingers meet. 
In doing this the tube is compressed, and 
on attempting to witdraw the fingers the 
ends of the toy are drawn so tipchtly 
around them as to render their extraction 
by main strength almost an impossibility. 
The harder the victim pulls the tighter is he 
manacled. Considerable patience and in-

Scaldlnir Milk Yeasels. 

It used to be the practice to scald milk 
pans and milk puils, and it is the practice 

Why is it done? There is no "sci- 
ence " about it ; philosophy has not led to 
it. What is it then that induces people 
to engage in wh it they don't understand, 
yet, which was md is a great good? It 
18 experience. It has been found that 
scalding a vessel with hot water will have 
an effect that cannot otherwise be ob- 
tained. „.,.,. J 

What is the effect ? Simply the de- 
struction of little spores of termentaticn, 
which propagate rapidly in dirt, and in 
the least dirt, so little that it cannot be 
seen (with the naked eye.) Experience 
led here, and pLilosophy followed to cor- 
roborate it. . - 

You cannot cleanse a vessel, tnen, with- 
out hot water. And this water must not 
only be smacking hot, biting your hand, 
but it must be absolutely boiling hot, up 
to the point. Then you will kill all the 
live animalculte; otherwise, you will 
not. 

And when the vessel is thus treated— 
cleaned first, and scalded afterward— set it 
away to dry, and do not touch it again till 
it is wanted for milk. Milk, remember, is 
a powerful absorbent, like charcoal, or 
plaster, or eartlij; and it will hold what it 
gels, improving on the rankness. In 
winter this is less the case, yet it is the 
case ; ia sammiir it is all important to at- 
tend to it. 

How neccswiry then to see that the 
hands having the handling of milk in 
charge, are to be trusted. This 



piece first, lett the dress should be spoiled 
by moisture, causioe the colors to run ; 
but for self-colored rilks, the direction is 
an excellent one; and satinets, even of 
light colors, if not greased or stained, will 
make up again almost equal to new. — 2he

A correspondent of the New York 
Tribune gives the following facts about 
onions, most of them authenticated by 
several witnesses. When at New Orleans, 
in charge of 100 men, among whom chol- 
era was raging, he observed that those who 
ate freely of onions were surely and fatal- 
ly attacaed; he has, however, found 
oinions were specially potent in cases of 
poisonous bites, his son and others having 
been cured from snake bites by their use. 
He also knows of a man who in the frenzy 
of hydrophobia ate onions voraciously and 
recovered. In cases of epidemic he has 
observed: 1. That onions in the room 
with small-pox patients decay rapidly, 
blisters appearing on them. 2. That they 
retain and communicate the virus many 
weeks. 8. That they prevent the small- 
pox by thus absorbing the virus. 4. That 
when applied to the feet of fever patients 
they quickly turn black. He infers from 
these facts that onions possess strong med- 
ical properties, that they should not be 
eaten during epidemics, and that they are, 
probably, among the most effective absorb- 
ents of blood poisons we have, as well as 
excellent disinfectants. 

A LOVER of good coffee sends to Hearth

sity- the necessity on which hang the kX the coffee-pot into the tea-kettle, and 

keep the keetle boiling briskly for fifteen 
or twenty minutes, or as much longer as 
you please, for any length of time will 
hardly impair the quality, for the coffee 
will not boil. Faithfully follow these 
plain directions— that is, let the water be 
boiling when poured on the coffee, and 
keep the kettle boiling afterward— and I 
defy ypur Biddy, or anybody's Biddy, to 
make poor coffee. I have now tried this 
method for six months, with unvarying 
success. It is virtually the French method, 
without its great expense. So perfectly 
is the aroma preserved, that one can 
scarcely perceive the odor when cooking. 
Still more, if you are such a devotee of 
the fragrant berry as to desire to bow be- 
fore the altar at noon, you have only to 
set your kettle and pot on the back of the 
stove, and alter dinner partake of the 
same cheering cup, with but little, if any, 
deterioration.

The dirtbeiag away, the air must be 
pure. 

Thin you cannot scald ; you must there- 
fore resort to other means— and these 
means are, not a confined bad air of the 
cellar or milk rooms, especially foul with 
vegetable Jodors ; nor the aroma of the 
dunghill ; the rank, urinal steam of the 
stables ; nor in the case of a cheese facto- 
ry, the proxia.ity to a pig pen ; but in 
avoidance of s.ll of them— for these things 
will as certainly affect the milk as the dirt 
left in the pan. 

An absolute freedom from everything 
that is offensive in odor or flavor, is the 
requisite to prime cheese, or a first qusiity 
of butter. Wlio has not detected the com- 
mon taint of the stables in milk and cream? 
Can this be cr dured ? 

Butter kept in the room over night with 
the family (in winter), is not fit to use. It 
has absorbed no much of the odors that it 
has become foul. The taste of the bad air 
is plainly perceptible. But cover your 
butter plate (not an old one) with a tight 
dish— say a tia basin, and your butter will 
be found mucti the same as when it was 
placed. It i.«, however, only perfect when 
kept — not occasionally put — in pure air. 
Housekeepers take note. When once 
tainted it can never be cured, but tena- 
ciously holds all it has, and gets all it can. 
Like charcoa!, or gypsum, or earth, it is a 
powerful absorber. From the time it is 

?;athered in t le cow until it is eaten in the 
amily, the gieatest care must be given to 
the -lacteal ])rodnct. Not only that, it 
reaches still farther ; the food, the water 
must not posuaes the odor. But generally 
iho worst is in the vessels and the atmos- 
phere that comes in contact with it. These, 
at least if impure, impart their impurity, 
however impure the milk may have been 
before. — Fra,:,rie Farmer.

At a late hour yester<lay evening a 
rather rustic-iooking individual was seen 
standing on the corner of Canal and 
Baronne street, intently regarding the 
street cars as they arrived and departed. 
Several persons passing along the street, 
surprised at the unusual aspect of the 
man, paused to look at him. It was 
thought by many that he was insane, ©r 
afflicted with some consuming grief. So 
long and silently did he stand there that a 
gentleman, unable to control his curiosity, 
approached him with the inquiry : 

" Are you wailing for any one ?" 

" No, sir." 

" May I inquire why you remain here so 

" Does It interest you ? 

" It excites my curiosity." 

"Indeed!" 

** Yea"

changed. He stepped around the corner, 
and will be back directly."

" I came down the river with him ; he 
wanted to borrow |10, and I hadn't no 
chance."

gravy of butler, pepper and salt, which 
should be prepared on a plate, and kept

matter, and then place them for three 
hours in a dilute solution of bichromate ot

by weak sulphurous acid, when the feath-

Stock that is in good health and not 
worked, if it has a range of pasture and 
access to water will take care of itself in 
summer ; but this it cannot do in winter, 
because the grass does not grow ; it is thus 
thrown upon the mercy of its owner, who 
sometimes happens io he inercilees, and the 
poor creature is only half fed and of 
course deteriorates in value or maylie dies, 
starved to death. 

The great reason why so many farmers 
fail to make money by their business is, 
because they do not conduct it in the best 
manner. Every farm should be stocked, 
but all farms should not be stocked alike. 
The selection of stock requires judgment 
and this judgment is acquired partly by 
study and partly by experience. The 
farm must be stocked to suit the market 
where it is located, and to suit the number 
of acres and quality of the soil. If you 
sje near a hog market stock largely with 
hogs, such as will grow and fatten in the 
shortest time on the least food. If near a 
mutU)n or wool market stock largely with 
sheep, if your land is suitable for that 
purpose, somewhat hilly or rolling ; and 
so of other stock, being careful always 
not to over-stock. To make a profit on 
stock it must have the best care, be fed 
regularly, plentifully, kept clean and 
otherwise well attended to both summer 
and winter, but particularly in winter. 
To succeed in stock raising the farmer 
must have a taste for it, must fe-il a pride 
in having it look well, and always select 
that variety for which he has a taste — and 
make it pay. — Ayn-erican Stock Journal.

but the stomach can only be repaired and strength- 
ened, and this i» one of the objecU of the famous 
vegetable restorative which for eighteeen years 
has been waging a successful contest with dyspepsia 
in all climates. As a specific for indipestion it 
stands alone. When the resources of the pharma- 
copreia have been exhausted, without, at beat, do- 
ing more than mitigating the complaint, a course 
of this wholesome and palatable, yet powerful, 
stomachic effects a perfect and permanent cure. 
In all cases ol dyspepsia the liver is more or lew 
disordered, and upon this important gland, as well 
as upon the stomach and bowels, the Bitters act 
with singular dislinrlness, regulating and rcinvig- 
oraling e-/ery secretive and assimilating organ on 
which bodily and mental health depend.

various forms, wakefulness, general debUlty, depreaslon 
of spirits ; also, the best preventive against fever and

"A Slight Cold," Coughs.— Few are 
aware of the importance of checking a

that which in the beginning would yield 
to a mild rempuy, if neglected, often at- 
tacks the lun^s. "Brown's Bronchial

Lay Tour rians for the Tear. 

No business shoild be conducted on 
haphazard principles, and farming is no 
exception to the general rule. 

Now, at the commencement of the year, 
every farmer should cast over in his mind 
what he will do and how he will do it. 
Which fields he wiU farm with corn, which 
with oats, wheat, cotton, or tobacco; 
which be will pasture, which mow, or 
which plant in potatoes. 

How much help he will require, whore 
it it to come from and what it will cost. 
IIow much oapital isinvested, if lesi would 
do — if more is required, and how much. 

All these thingH should be noted on a 
memorandum, which can be altered from 
time to time, if he sees proper to do s«. 

'To conduct any business without a sys- 
tem to govern it, is like groping in the 
dark; you may catch a good haul by 
accident, or you may sink your capital for 
want of forethought. Do not depend on 
/««d-thought, it comes too late ; though 
sometimes instructive, it is very expen- 
sive and dangerous to be indulged im. 

"When you hare laid your plans of what 
is to be done, provide the means to do them 
with, do them wel' and in the right time. 
'These are very important considerations, 
and should by no means be neglected. 
Do not depend on purcba.sing seed when 
the time has oome for planting or s^jwfn?, 
or you may have to take such as have 
been refused by others and pay the high- 
est price for it. If there are new imple- 
ments to be purchased, or old ones to be 
repaired, see to it in time. Get the best 
—they are the cheapest in the end. Keep 
the brain at work as well as the hands. 
Ri«e witli the sun, or beiore it, and retire 
early. — American Stock Journal.

A Habtford mother amused herself 
the other day by leaving a hand-carriage, 
occupied by her baby, standing in'tne 
middle of the sidewalk while she hid her- 
self in a doorway. Soon a great crowd 
a.s.sembled, from which arose a storm of 
indignant uttemnct.s relative to the heart- 
less "desertion," and, just as an officer 
wfiA about to wheel the little innocent to 
lf»3 exposed quarters, the jovial parent 
btepptd forward, and, remarking that 
there was no occasion for excitement, 
walked away with her charge.

Thb water power of Maine, derived 
from the rivers and Btream.s, is estimated, 
by an official report, at between two and 
three million horse power. The approxi- 
mate area of the lakes, ponds, and rivers 
of the Htate is placed at 3,300 square miles, 
and the area of forests at 21,000 square 
miles. Maine, it is asserted, has 1,668

The Deniocratic Party. 



The New York Legislature on the 5th 
instant, by a party vote of 16 to 13 in the 
Senate, and Ol to 58 in the Assembly, 
passed a resolution rescinding the ratifica- 
tion of the Fifteenth Amendment made by 
Uie last Legislature. The in lieUions are 
that the utmost strength of the Demo- 
cratic party in Ohio will be put forth to de- 
feat the amendment there. The party 
platform and nominations in Indiana in- 
dicate a like purpose there, if the Demo 
cratic party can carry the State. 

These iiidicatums «>f the drift of Demo- 
cratic impulse show that, as heretofore, 
the parly relies on anti-negro prt-judices 
and passions as the strongest, and, at pret- 
ent, the only b.md ot coherence between 
its members. The Fifteenth Amendment 
simply gives to the black man througfa- 
out the Union the same weapon, without 
which the white man has never yet been 
able to enjoy or preserve political freedom. 
To suppose that the black race cjiu detend 
their freedom without the ballot, or that it 
can really be free without the ballot, is to 
suppose that it is superior to the while race 
in this respect. The real hostility to the 
Fifteenth Amendment is the damu-the- 
nigger anyhow sentiment, and, on this 
platform, the Democratic party, after go- 
ing into the rebellion upon it and getting 
whipped upon it there, after going into 
reconstruction upon it and getting whip- 
ped there, are drifting into a new cam- 
paign, not so much because they think 
the platform a good one as because they 
Icick the wit or opportunity to a^ree on 
any other. , 

It is settled, therefore, that at least one 
year more must be wasted in fighting over 
issues up>on which the sen'e of the 
whole people has been fully taken, and 
whi .-h have been decided by their votes 
in favor of tue Republican party. On the 
single question of Radicalism the Repub- 
lican party is about the best drilled, best 
officered, moat resolute, determined, over- 
whelming, and irresistible political party 
the country has ever known. So long as 
the opposition will consent to go into the 
fi^ht on that qucsiion. Republican major- 
ities will know no diminution. Begin- 
ning on the low ground that slavery 
should not go into the Territories, advanc- 
ing to the higher ground that it should 
not be made a means of strength to rebel- 
lious armies, then striking for *he nak«d 
right of the slave to control his own per- 
8 )n and services, then rising still again to 
the position that he should have free ac- 
cess to our courts of justice, then that he 
should have the ballot in all the rebel 
States. The Democratic party has, by its 
refusal to make terms of peace at any 
point, compelled us to advance at last to 
universal sulVrage throughout the land, on 
the broad basis of the declaration that 
" all government derives its just powers 
from the consent of the governed." On 
no other issue can wc so easily preserve 
the Mtatun quo of Republican ascendency. 
Until this issue is settled reconstruction is 
not settled. Until reconstruction is set- 
tled the war for the Union is not won, 
and all the treasure, bloo<l, and agony 
of the past ten ' years are spent in 
vain. This is the logical popular con vie 
liou. This is felt, and therefore needs not 
to be proven. But if proof were needed, 
how easy to supply it. Unless the Fif- 
teenth Amendment pass, impartial suffrage 
rests merely on State constitutions, re- 
versible at any hour after the States are 
restored. If impartial suffrage at the 
South rests on State constitutions it will 
be reversed, and the colored race will sink 
again, from citizens and equal working 
men, A\ho know their rights and dare 
maintain them, into serfs, pariahs, out- 
casts, and refugees. No Legislature of 
the Southern States, elected by white 
votes and unrestrained in its legislation, 
will ever leave the blacks, as a class, tlieir 
liberty. The road from denial of the bal- 
lot as the starting-point, straight down to 
slavery as the goal, is short and straight 
The restoration of slavery is the restora- 
tion of war. All thisispliin; and it needs 
only the heat and agitation of a political 
campaign, conducted on this issue, to bring 
ii oui in its true colors as the same old 
flight between Freedom, Union, and the 
National Government on the one hand, 
and slavery, secesficn, anarchy, civil war, 
and national dissolution and death on the 
other. On this issue the American people 
can and will never reverse their verdict. 
The longer the issue is kept up the more 
determinedly and inveterately they will 
fight for the confirmation of all past vic- 
tories, and against the overthrow of a 
single resultof the war. — Vhieago Iriburu, 
Jan. 11. 

Letter from the Negro Printer Tfho 
Worked with Brick Poincroy. 

TAi.LMAtwJE, Jan. 1. 
To Ibe Editor of tba Cleveland Iltrald : 

In a late issue of your paper, you say 
that Brick Pomeroy has said that he once 
worked at a case alongside of a negro 
printer, and says he is proud of the fact. 
Vou tlien say, "Now let us hear from the 
darkey." 

Well, sir, I am the very darkey whom 
Brick worked alongside of, and if he is 
proud of it, I must say that / (tm not ; on 
the Cv)utrary, 1 am a.<*hamed of it. Brick 
was good enough iu his way, but if he 
could not have that, even the devil was 
no match for him. Please rcmin*l Brick 
that ho owes me $3.70, borrowed money. 
Hi that, and if he is proud of any one 
thin'j, perhaps he yet may be proud to say, 
J oir>- DO negro. VV ho knows ? If he ever 
j^ets in that frame of mood, he will find 
me at Tallmadge, Summit county, Ohio. 
I am now rather crippled up, but my 
Heavenly Father knows that I would 
.■starve before I would again work at a 
case alongside of Brick Pomtroy. 
Very respectfully, 

No.Mi Pkkett.

MISCELLANEOUS iTEMs.^^,^1 FABM AN3D HOUSEHOLD 



Ratifying. 

The Kixtouri Democrat, in 'discussing 
the question whether a State, after ratify- 
ing an amendment to the National Con- 
stitution, can rescind its ratificatioB, ad- 
vances two well-considered and strong 
points, vir. : 

1. That, under the Constitution, none 
but affirmative votes arc recognized. A 
vote against ratification amounts to no 
more than a failure to vote at all ; and ob- 
viously a failure of a State to vote, after 
it has once voted to ratify, cannot undo its 
vote of ratification. 

2. That if, as the repealers contend, the 
amendment were a new compact between 
sovereign States, th«nit would require the 
consent of all the sovereign States to bind 
all, and not merely of three-fourths. That 
it is no*;, therefore, a compact between 
sovereigns, but a mere mode of taking the 
vote of the people of a State on a ques- 
tion in a manner authorized by the Na- 
tioii.ll Constitution. That the vote de- 
rives its validity, therefore, from the Con- 
stitution of the United States, and to be 
valid must be rendered under the provi- 
sions of that Constitution. That the Con- 
stitution of the United States provides for 
an affirmative vote only, any other vote 
having no other effect than mere silence. 
ThHt an aflirmalive vote, Is necessarily 
counted by the National Government as 
S(wn as rendered, in order to ascertain 
whether the requisite number of States 
have ratified. That, after;being once given 
and counted for the amendment, the Con- 
stitution contains no further authorization 
to the State to act in the matter, and that 
what it may do, being thus wholly without 
authority of the National Constitution, 
is void under that instrument. 

The State of New York having once 
ratified the amendment, and transmitted 
the ratification to Washington, her powers 
are exhausted, and when, including hers, 
the rt([uisite number of votes of States are 
obtained, wc believe the President will 
declare the amendment ratified.

Half Cash 



and Half Barter— A 
Trick, 



Cute 



The Gentle Side of Stanton's Character. 



The following is related by the Hon. G. 
B. Lincoln, t>f Brooklyn : 

It was on the morning of the 20th of 



A Connecticut broom peddler — a 

shrewd chap, from over among the steady 

habits, wo«»den clocks, schoolmasters, and 

other fixins — drove through the streets of 

Providence heavily laden with corn 

broom.s. He had called at several stores 

and offered his load, or ever so small a 

portion of it ; but when he wanted the 

cash, and nothing else, in payment, they 

had uniformily given him to understand 

that they had brooms enough, and that he 

might go further. At length he drove up 

to a large wholesale store on the west 

side, and once more offered his wares. 

"Well, I want the brooms badly enough," 
said the merchant, "but what will you 
take in pay V" 

This was a poser. The peddler was 
aching to get rid of his brooms ; he de- 
spised the very sight of his brooms ; but 
he would sooner sell a single broom for 
cash than the whole load for any other 
article— especially that which he could 
not dieiKJse of so readily as he could 
brooms. After a moment's hesitation, 
however, he screwed his courage to the 
sticking point— it required some courage, 
after having lost his chance of selling his 
load half a doz^n times by a similar an- 
swer—and frankly told the merchant he 
must have cash. Of course, the merchant 
protested that ca.sh was scarce, and that 
he must purchase, if he purchasetl at all. 
with what he had in his store to pay with. 
He reaJlv wanted the brooms, and he did 
not hesitate to say so ; but the limes were 
hard, and he had notes to pay, and had 
goods that must be disposed of. 

Finally, he said he wcmhl put the goods 
at the cost price, for the sake of trading, 
and would take the whole load of brooms 
which the peddler had labored so unsuc- 
cesjfully at the other stores to dispose of 
" So unload the broom.s," said he to the 
man from Connecticut, "and select any 
articles from mjr store, and you shall have 
them at cost price." 

The peddler .scratched his head. There 
was an idea there, as the sequel shows 
plainly enough. 

" I tell you what it is," he answered at 
last, "just say them terms for half the 
load, and ca.'th for t'other half, and I'm 
your man. Blowed ef I don't sell eout, if 
Connecticut sinks with all her broom stufl', 
the next minute." 

The merchant hesitated a moment, but 
finally concluded the chance a good one. 
He would be getting half the brooms for 
something that would not sell as readily ; 
as for the cost price, it was an easy gam- 
mon in regard to it. The bargain was 
struck, the brooms were brought in, and 
the cash for half of them was paid over. 

" Now, what will you have for the re- 
mainder of your bill V" asked the mer- 
chant. 

The peddler scratched his head again, 
and this time more vigorously. He walked 
the floor, whistled, and drummed with his 
fingers on the head of a barrel. By-and- 
by his reply came — slowly, deliberately 
and emphatically : 

" You Providence fellers are cute ; you 

sell at cost, pretty much all of you, and 

make money. I don't see how it's done. 

, Now, I don't know about your goods,

Scalding Hllk Yeiaela. 



It used to be the practice to scald milk 
pans and milk pails, and it is the practice 

yet. „ . 

Why is It d(me? There is no "sci- 
ence " about it ; philosophy has not led to 
it. What is it then that induces people 
to engage in wlat they don't understand, 
yet, which was and is a great good? It 
18 experience. It has been found that 
scalding a vessel with hot water will have 
an effect that cannot otherwise be ^b- 
tained. 

What is the effect ? Simply the de- 
struction of little spores of termentati<>n, 
which propagi.te rapidly in dirt, and in 
the least dirt, so little that it cannot bo 
seen (with the naked eye.) Experience 
led here, and philosophy followed to cor- 
roborate it. 

You cannot cleanse a vessel, then, with- 
out hot water. And this water must not 
only be smacking hot, biting your hand, 
but it must be absolutely boiling hot, up 
to the point. Then you will kill all the 
live animalculso; otherwise, you will 
not. 

And whea tie vessel is thus treated— 
cleaned first, and scalded aflerward— set it 
away to dry, and do not touch it again till 
it is wanted for milk. Milk, remember, is 
a powerful absorbent, like charcoal, or 
plaster, or earthj; and it will hold what it 
gets, improviag on the rankness. In 
winter this is less the case, yet it is the 
case ; ia summer it is all important to at- 
tend to it. 

How neccs=ary then to see that the 
hands having the handling of milk in 
charge, are to be trusted. This is as nec- 
essary as any thing, and is the first neces- 
sity — the nec«;s8ity on which hang the 
rest. 

The dirt be ng away, the air must be 
pure. 

Thifl you caanot scald ; you must there- 
fore resort tc other means— and these 
means are, not a confined bad air of the 
cellar or milk rooms, especially foul with 
vegetable ^odors ; nor the aroma of the 
dunghill ; the rank, urinal steam of the 
stables ; nor ia the case of a cheese facto- 
ry, the proximity to a pig pen ; but in 
avoidance of ill of them— for these things 
will as certair ly affect the milk as the dirt 
left in the pan. 

An absolute freedom from everything 
that is offensi ?e in odor or flavor, is the 
requisite to p rime cheese, or a first qusiity 
of butter. Who has not detected the com- 
mon taint of ihe stables in milk and cream? 
Can this be oidured ? 

Butter kepi, in the room over night with 
the family (in winter), is not fit to use. It 
has absorbed so much of the odors that it 
has become foul. The taste of the bad air 
is plainly perceptible. But cover your 
butter plate (not an old one) with a tight 
dish— say a tin basin, and your butter will 
be found much the same as whea it was 
placed. It is, however, only perfect when 
kept— not ocijasionally put — in pure air. 
House-keope:rs take note. When once 
tainted it cat never be cured, but tena- 
ciously hoM? all it has, and gets all it can. 
Like charcoal, or gypsum, or earth, it is a 
powerful absorber. From the time it is 

f;athered in the cow until it is eaten in the 
amily, the greatest care must be given to 
the -lacteal product. Not only that, it 
reaches still farther ; the food, the water 
must not poisads the odor. But generally 
the worst is in the vessels and the atmos- 
phere thatccmes in cemtact with it. These, 
at least if impure, impart their impurity, 
however imjiure the milk may have been 
befora. — Prairie Farmer.

A correspondent of the New York 
Tribune gives the following facts about 
onions, most of them authenticated by 
several witnesses. When at New Orleans, 
in charge of 100 men, among whom chol- 
era was raging, he observed that those who 
ate freely of onions were sorely and fatal- 
ly attacked; he has, however, found 
oinions were specially potent in cases of 
poisonous bites, his son and others having 
been cured from snake bites by their use. 
He also knows of a man who in the frenzy 
of hydrophobia ate onioas voraciously and 
recovered. In cases of epidemic he has 
observed: 1. That onions in the room 
with small-pox patients decay rapidly, 
blisters appearing on them. 2. That they 
retain and communicate the virus many 
weeks. ^. That they prevent the small- 
pox by thus absorbing the virus. 4. That 
when applied to the feet of fever patients 
they quickly turn black. He infers from 
these facts that onions possess strong med- 
ical properties, that they should not be 
eaten during epidemics, and that they are, 
probably, among the most effective absorb- 
ents of blood poisons we have, as well as 
excellent disinfectants. 

A LOVER of good coffee sends to Hearth 
and H«me the following directions for 
making a good article : " Have your pot 
made with an elongated bottom, so as to 
fit into the tea-kettle, and extend to within 
an inch ot the bottom of the latter, but 
not touch it. Now prepare your coffee in 
the usual manner, see that the kettle is 
boiling briskly, then turn into the coffee a 
sufficient quantity of boiling water, and 
set the coflee-pot into the tea-kettle, and 
keep the keetle boiling briskly for fifteen 
or twenty minutes, or as much longer as 
you please, for any length of time will 
hardly impair the quality, for the coffee 
will not boil. Faithfully follow these 
plain directions — that is, let the water be 
boiling when poured on the coffee, and 
keep the kettle boiling afterward— and I 
defy ypur Biddy, or anybody's Biddy, to 
make poor coffee. I have now tried this 
method for six months, with unvarying 
•uccess. It is virtually the French method, 
without its great expense. So perfectly 
is the aroma preserved, that one can 
scarcely perceive the odor when cooking. 
Still more, if you are such a devotee of 
the fragrant berry as to desire to bow be- 
fore the altar at noon, you have only to 
set your kettle and pot on the back of the 
stove, aad alter dinner partake of the 
same cheering cup, with but little, if any, 
deterioration.

A NEW physiological discovery has 
been made by a young man— namely, that 
the pulse of young ladies generally beats 
stronger in the palm of the hand than at 
the wrist. As to more elderly females, 
even little boys know by stern experience 
that the palm of the maternal hand beats

One of Mark Twain's farmers bought 
some Bartlett pear trees, and the next 
season he took some of the fruit to the 
tree dealer. " What kind of pears do you 
call these ?" " Well, I dont't know ; hut- 
ton pears, perhaps." "But, they grew 
on one of the trees you sold me for a Bart- 
lett !" " Are you such a tool," was the 
dealer's convincing rsjoinder, " as to sup- 
pose that a tree is going to bear Bartlett 
pears the first year ? " 

The latest thing out in the way of a 
novelty is a sort of a tube, all the way 
from Paris, woven out of strips of palm 
leaf. The uninitiated is requested by a 
friend to insert the forefinger of each hand 
into the ends of the tube and see if he 
can make the ends of the fingers meet. 
In doing this the tube is compressed, and 
on attempting to witdraw the fingers the 
ends of the toy are drawn so tightly 
around them as to render their extraction 
by main strength almost an impos-sibility. 
The harder the victim pullsthe tighter is he 
manacled. Considerable patience and in- 
genuity are requisite for one to liberate 
himself from this trap, when once caught.

Tube. 



some little fellow — of ten years, or there- j

hands of the Secretary. By the conversa- j 
litMi betweeik them I learned that the 
lail was an orphan frpm a Western State, 
whose father had been killed in battle and - 
whf^se brothers were still in the Western 
army. Some one had sent him to Wash- ; 
ingtoa with a letter to Mr Stanton, in 
the hope that thereby he might bo matle 
a "page" in the Senate or House of 
Representatives. " You shall be made a 
* p-ige ' in the Senate, if it is possible to be i 
done, ray little man." said the Si eretary. 
" I will see Gov. Morgan, who is now 
here, and others as they arrive, and I 
think they will appoint you, but if they j 
do not do it, then you shall come and stay , 
here with me, and I will take care ofi 
you." Then, after s<tme inquiries and 
comforting words, the little fellow left 
with a lighter hej»rt. The appeal was not 
in vain, the boy was on duty in the 
Senate Chamber the following winter. —

kindness of heart is told. A few years 
since, when he resided on C street, in this

At ft late hour yesterday evening a 
rather rustic4ooking individual was seen 
standing on the comer of Canal and 
Baronne street, intently regarding the 
street cars as they arrived and departed. 
Several persons passing along the street, 
surprised at the Unusual aspect of the 
man, paused to look at him. It was 
thought by many that he was insane, ©r 
afflicted with some consuming grief. So 
long and silently did he stand there that a 
gentleman, unable to control his curiosity, 
approached him with the inquiry : 

" Are you waiting for any one f" 

" No, sir." 

" May I inquira why you remain here so 
long?" 

"Does it interest you ?" 

" It excites my curiosity." 

"Indeed!" 

" Yea." 

" Well, I'll tell you, stranger; I loaned a 
fellow a $1,000 draft awhile ago to get 
changed. He stepped around the corner, 
and will be back directly." 

" Who was the fellow ?" 

" I came down the river with him ; he 
wanted to borrow $10, and I hadnt no 
ckanee." 

" He'll not come back." 

" Oh, yes he will— he's a preacher!" 

Notwithstanding the confi<lence of the 
countryman, his friend did not come back 
and the rustic is doubtless waiting for him 
yet. — iS>M> OrlAiM Picayune. 



To Settib Coffee. — A lady corres- 
pendent of an exchange says that she 
finds the best method ot settling coffee is 
as soon as you brown your coffee, 
and while the" kernels are yet warm, to 
mix with it a beaten egg, say one egg to a 
pound. The egg forms a covering around 
the kernels, preserving the aroma and

tler. 

Veal Omf.t-et. — Three pounds of chop- 
pod veal, 2 I'ggs, beaten ; 1 tablespoonful 
of sweet crtain, 1 tablespoonful of sidt, 1 
teaspoonful of ground pepper, 6 table- 
spoonfuls ol rolled crackws, 1 teaspoonful 
ot thyme or summer savory. Make into 
a long roll, put into a dripping pnn with 
water enough to keep from burning.

To Blea<"H Cotton Cloth.— For five 
pounds cloth, take one pound of chloride 
of lime ; dlHsolve tha lime in warm, soft 
water, BHffloient to wet the cloth thor- 
oughly without crowding; turn the cloth 
often with 1 he hands and raise it up to 
rive it air, so all parts may be exposed,

of an hour, then wring out and rinse thor-

iPoiiK St =:.\k Broiled.— The tenderloin 
is the be&t )or steak, but any lean, white 
meat is good. Broil slowly, alter splitting 
it, so as to allow it to cook through with- 
out drying or burning. When ready to 
turn over, ilip the cooked side in a nice 
gravy of buUer, pepper and salt, which 
should be [repared on a plate, and kept 
hot withou . boiling. It must be well done. 
It requires slow broiling. It will take at 
least twenty minutes to broil a pork steak. 
KawBeef for Invalids. — Raw beef, 
it is asserted, proves of the greatest benefit 
as a diet for persons of frail constitutions. 
It is reported that physicians are now ad- 
ministering to consumptives a diet of fine- 
ly-chopped raw beef, properly seasoned 
with salt, and heated by placing the dish 
containing it in boiling water. This food 
is given also .in cases where the stom- 
ach reject*) almost every other form of 
food. It assimilates rapidly and affords 
the best nf urishment, while patients learn 
to long for and t© like it as much as Dr. 
Kane did tis Arctic dinners of raw and 
seal walrus). 

Never whine over what you may sup-

Bleaching or Disinfectino Fe.\tu- 
KR8. — Clean the feathers first from greasy 
matter, and then place them for three 
hours in a dilute solution ot bichromate ol 
potassa, to which a small quantity of nit- 
ric acid has been added. The feathers 
will become greenish from a deposit of 
chromic sesqui-oxide, which is removed 
by weak sulphurous acid, when the feath- 
ers are left perfectly white. The nascent 
oxygen developed in the reduction of 
chromic a<;id to the oxyde is, of course, 
the bleaching agent, and so powerful is it 
that the darkest feathers will become per- 
fectly whi:e. — Eicchange,

I.ay the silk on a flat surface and apply 
the liquid with a clean sponge, till the dirt 
is well eer>arated ; dip each piece iu a pail 
of clear wnler and hang up to dry without

Stock that is in good health and not 
worked, if it has a range of pasture and 
access to water will take care of itself in 
summer; but this it cannot do in winter, 
because the grass does not grow ; it is thus 
thrown upon the mercy of its owner, who 
sometimes happens to be mercUosa, and the 
poor creature is only half fed and of 
course deteriorates in value or mayhe dies, 
starved to death. 

The great reason why so many farmers 
fail to make money by their business is, 
because they do not conduct it in the best 
manner. Every farm should be stocked, 
but all farms should not be stocked alike. 
The selection of stock requires judgment 
and this judgment is acquired partly by 
study and partly by experience. The 
farm must be stocked to suit the market 
where it is located, and to suit the number 
of acres and quality of the soil. If you 
are near a hog market stock largely with 
hogs, such as will grow and fatten in the 
shortest time on the least food. If near a 
mutton or wool market stock largely with 
sheep, if your land is suitable for that 
purpose, somewhat hilly or rolling ; and 
so of other stock, being careful always 
not to over-stock. To make a profit on 
stock it must have the best care, be fed 
regularly, plentifully, kept clean and 
otherwise well attemied to both summer 
and winter, but particularly in winter. 
To succeed in stock raising the farmer 
must have a taste for it, must fe-d a pride 
in having it look well, and always select 
that variety for which he has a taste — and 
make it pay. — American Stotk Journal.

tic piece of meUt Is to a chronometer. It influ- 
ences the artion of the other organs, and controls, 
to a certain extent, the whole living machine. The 
comparison may be carried further; for as the weak{ 
ness or other imperfections of the main spring is 
indicated on the face of the time-piece, so also is 
the weaknoM or other disorder of the stomach be- 
trayed by the face of the Invalid. The complexion 
is sallow or faded, the eyes are deficient in lurtre 
and intelligence, and there in a worn, anxious ex- 
pression in the whole countenance which tell as

Lay Tour Flans for the Year. 

No business shotld be conducted on 
hapliazard principles, and farming is no 
exception to the general rule. 

Now, at the commencement of the year, 
every farmer should cast over in hii mind 
what he will do and how he will do it. 
Which fields he will farm with corn, which 
with oats, wheat, cotton, or tf)bacco; 
which he will pasture, which mow, or 
which plant in potatoes. 

How much help he will require, whore 
it it to come from and what it will cost. 
How much capital isinveated, if lesi would 
do — if more is required, and how much. 

All these thing.s should be noted on a 
memorandum, which can be altered from 
time to time, if he sees proper to do 8». 

To conduct any butiness without a sys- 
tem to govern it, is like groping in the 
dark; you may catch a good haul by 
accident, or you may sink your capital for 
want of forethought. Do not depend on 
/rtft^f-thought, it comes too late ; though 
sometimes instructive, it is very expen- 
sive and dangerous to be indulged v. 

When you have laid your plans of what 
is to be done, provide the means to do them 
with, do them well and in the right time. 
These are very important considerations, 
and should by no means be neglected. 
Do not depend on purchasing seed when 
the time has oome for planting or sowfnp, 
or you may have to take such as have 
been refused by others and pay the high- 
e.st price for it. If there are new imple- 
ments to be purchased, or old ones to be 
repaired, see to it in time. Get the best 
— they are the cheapest in the end. Keep 
the brain at work as well as the hands. 
Rise with the sun, or before it, and retire 
early. — American Stock Jou/mal.

A Hartford mother amused herself 
the other day by leaving a hand-carriage, 
occupied by her baby, standing in' the 
middle of the sidewalk while she hid her- 
self in a doorway. Soon a great crowd 
assembled, from which arose a storm of 
indignant uttertinces relative to the heart- 
less "desertion," and, just as an officer 
was about to wheel the little innocent to 
less exposed quarters, the jovial parent 
stepped forward, and, remarking that 
there was no occasion for excitement, 
walked away with her charge.

Ths water power of Maine, derived 
from the rivers and streams, is estimated, 
by an official report, at between two and 
three million horse-power. The approxi- 
mate area of the lakes, ponds, and rivers 
of the Htate is placed at 3,200 square miles, 
and the area of forests at 21,000 square 
miles. Maine, it is asserted, has 1,868 
lakes, more in proportion to its size than 
any other country of the globe, with few 
exceptions, and l,229,200,000,00a cubic 
feet of water are annually delivered by 

her rivers.

From Rev. Henry Ward Beecber — 

"Were I, in view of all the c inpetitors that 
aie now in the field, to choose. I should cer- 
tainly choose the Living Age. * * Nor is 
there, in any library that I know of, so much

From the Watchman and Reflector, Boston-- 

"The Nation, ^ N. Y.), in saying that the 
Living Age is 'the best of all our eclectic pub- 
lications,' expresses our own views." 

From the New York Tifnes — 

The taste, judgment and wi'e tact display-

near tbe glittering diamond. Then the pour 
wretches went to begging and the rich wretches 
went to dinner.

what others ?jy after long observation A gen- 
tleman who has been living here for eighteen 
years said to me: "Rome is more irreverent to- 
ward the clergy than any city iu Eu:ope." ' 
"Is it possible?" 

"It is, and undeniable. Observe who it is 
now, during our walk to (lay, that beho^'e ob- , 
se<{niously toward the priests. I tell you the 
better class of tbe lower class have more dis}:u.>it 
than love for them. 'Familiarity breeds con- 
tempt.' The people here have no feeling one 
way or another lowarvl their hierarchy. They 
have sunk into a condition of torpid ac-iuies- .

Rome — a Protestent, to be sure, but a fair m:in 
and no altrai!>t or ranter. .And I say, ai> far as 
I have observed, he describes the behavior of 
Rome outside the religious orders, and above 
the mendicant.4. 

Rome i* full of gofaip, and it is difficult ro 
know what is worth sending and what is not. 
Here is a story whieh has excellent foundation : 
Cardinal Bonne.'->Fo»e, of France (liberal) was 
pumped by the Pope a3 to «but France thought 
of the coMncil. 

•'France hopes it will be for the best." 
'•But what more?" 
'•That il will be c< n 'iliatory." 
"But what of infallibilrty ?" 
"France hopes it will not be declared a dogma.* 
".4h, I see (excitedly), your Eminence has al 
ways been oppo>ed to lije. You were epp sed 
to the Immaculate Conception, but yi'ur opp"si- 
lioi' did not avail It shall not avail now. We 
shall have our will." 

The Cardinal made as though he would rejoin 
but was bowed out, both parties beinp a little 
out of repair as to the papal inf*tlib'lity, tbe 
one refusing to believe in it, the other failing to 
practice it then and there.

cil is to and on St. Peter's day. !be2?th of,?une.
