How They Managed.
'Pack up your things as soon a9 you
please, my dear,' said Mr. Chesney.
'We're going to move on Saturday.'
Mr. and Mrs. Chesney were a matri
monial firm—there was no question
about that—but Mis. Chesney had al
ways been a silent partner in the same.
('lf ever I get married,' said Elma, a
bright-eyed girl of seventeen, 'I won't
be put upon as Mamma is 1' 'Papa is
a regular despot—that's w hat papa is 1'
decided Will, a tall stripling of fifteen.'
'Where, my dear ?' asked Mrs. Ches
ney, with a little start.
'lnto the couutry,' said the family
autocrat. 'l'm tired of this city busi
ness. It costs a great deal more than
it comes to. I'm told you can live at
half the expense in the conn try.'
'But,' gasped Mrs. C'nesnev, 'what
is to become of the children's educa
tion ?'
'There's a very good district school in
the neighborhood, not more than a mile
distant,' explained her husband, 'and
exercise will do them good.'
'And what are we to do for society ?'
'Pshaw !' said Chesney. 'I would
not give a rap for people who can't be
society for themselyes. There'll be the
housework to do, you know —nobody
keeps a girl in the country—and plenty
of chores about the place for Will and
Spencer. I shall keep a horse, if 1 can
get one cheap, foi the station is half a
a mile from the place, and I've bar
gained for a couple of cows and some
Will and Spencer looked askance at
each other.
'lt'll do us good to walk a mile to
school, 1 muttered the elder ; but fath
er must have a horse to carry him half
a mile to station.'
'That's father's logic all over,' ob
served Spencer.
Wtiile Mr. Chesney explained to his
wife the various advantages which
were to accrue from the promised
'lt's unfortunate,' said lie, 'that El
ma and Rosie arn't boys. Such a lot
of women folks aie enough to swamp
any family. Men, now, can always
earn their own bread. But we must
try to make everybody useful in some
way or other. It's so healthy, you
know.' added he. 'And the rent won't
be hall of wnat we pay here.
'Are their any modern conveniences
aljont the place ? timidly inquired
Mrs. Chesney.
'There's a spring of excellent water
about a hundred yards from the house,'
said her husband
Mrs. Chesney giw pale.
'llave I got to walk a hundred yards
for every drop of water I want V' said
'And a large rain-water hogshead
under the eayes of the house," added
Mr. Chesney. 'And I've already got a
bargain in kerosene lamps. As for
candles, 1 am given to understand that
the good housekeepers thereabouts
make 'era themselves in tin molds.
There's nothing like economy. Now I
do beg to know Abigail,' he added,
irritably, 'what are you looking so
lackadaisical about ? Do you expect to
sit still and fold your hands, while I do
all the work ? Give me a woman for
sheer natural laziness !'
'I am not lazy, George,' said the poor
wife, with a bewildered air ; 'but—all
this is so new and strange at first. Rut
I'll try to get accustomed to it—l'll try
my very best.'
Nevertheless, Rossie and Elma and
their mother shed many a salt tear in
to the trunks and packing-boxes, on
top of the woolen blankets and lugs
and piles of domestic linen.
'I hate the country !' said Elma.
'l'd as soon go to prison and done with
'Oh, EUie, don't talk so,' said ltose.
'There are wild-roses and robins there,
j just as ono sees on the painted plaques
in the stoie windows. And perhaps
j we can have a flower-bed, and some
little downy chickens !'
But the first sight of Mulleinstalk
! Farm was dispiriting in the expreme.
Between rock and swamp, there was
scarcely pasture for the two lean cows
that Mr. Chesney had bought at 'a bar
gain,' and the hollow-backed horse,
which stalked about the premises like
some phautmn Bucephalus.
The apple-trees in the orchard weie
thiee-quarters dead, and leaned sorrow
fully awav from the last winds, until
their boughs touched the very ground ;
the fences were all going to ruin, and
j the front gate was tied up with a hemp
'ls this home ?' said Elma, with an
indescribible intonation in her voice.
'We'll get things all straightened up,
after awhile,' said Mr. Chesney, bust
ling to drive away the pigs, who had
broken out of their pen Mid were
squealing dismally under the window.
Mrs. Chesney cried herself to sleep
that night, and awakentd the next
morning with every bone instinct with
shooting pains.
'And no wonder,' said Spencer.
'There's a foot of water in the cellar.'
'We must have it drained,' said Mr.
Chesney, with an uneasy look ; 'but
there's plenty of things to do first.
And now began a reign of the strict
est economy. Mr. Chesney himself
paid for everything with checks, and
not an article came into the house or
out of it without his cognizance. New
dresses were frowned upon ; spring
bonnets were strictly interdicted ; or
ders were issued that old carpets should
be reserved, and broken dishes repaired
with cement and quicklime.
'Save, save, save I That is the chief
thing,' he kept repeating, briskly.
'Women-folks can't earn ; they should
try their best to save.'
'lt's all very well for papa,' growled
Will. 'lie goes to the city every day
and sees something besides the pigs
and the dead apple-trees. He orders a
new suit when he needs it. Look at
mamma's patched gown and Rosie's
dyed bonnet-strings ! Why, they
can't even go to church, they are such
objects ! He gets his lunch at a res
taurant, and we eat cold beans, and
drink dandelion coffe and sige tea !'
'Boys,' fiuttpred Rosie, 'l've an idea.
Mary Penn, who lives on the next
farm, you know, came to see Elma and
me yesterday. Papa is earning his lv
--ing ; we'll earn something, too.'
'I should like to know how,' mutter
ed Spencer. 'I might hire out some
where as farm hand, if it was'nt for
that wretched old horse, nd the pigs,
and the wood chopping, and—'
'Oh, but there is something that
won't interfere with the chores, nor
with school !' said cheetful little ltosie.
'Just listen—all I ask of you is to
listen !'
And the weeks grew into months,
and the red leaves eddied down in lit
tle swirls from the little maple tree u ,
and 'pig-killing time' came, and, with
the aid of a lame, one-eyed man, Mr.
Chesney, laid down his own stock of
poik and sausages for the winter with
the sense of being triumphantly econ
The family had left off complaining
now. Apparently they were resigned
to their doom. Rut there was some
things that Mr. Chesney could not ex
plain at all.
A new rug brightened up rhe dismal
hues of their parlor carpet ; Rosie had
a crimson merino dress, trimmed with
tlack velvet bars ; Elma's jacket was
edged with substantial black fur ; and
grand grand climax of extravagance
Mrs. Chesney had a new shawl, in
place of the v>!d broche garment which
had been tier mother's before her !
lie looked over the housekeeping
books with renewed vigilance, ho con
sisted the stubs of his check book with
a glance that nothing could escape.
•I— don't— know -how—they—man
age it,'said he, scratching his nose
with the lead-pencil that he always
carried. 'I hate mysteries, and I mean
to be at the bottom of this before I'm
an hour older.'
He took his account-book under his
arm and matched into the kitchen,
where his wife was clearing away the
late supper.
'Abigail,' said he,'how is this ? I've
given you no money. You've long
left off asking for money. How have
you managed to smarten yourself and
the children up s> ? L won't bj cheat
ed by own wife !'
Elma set down the pitcher which she
was wiping, and came and stood before
her father with glittering eyes and
cheeks stained with crimson, like a flag
of battle.
'Papa,' she said, 'you must not speak
to mamma so. Mamma would not
cheat you nor anybody else. It's mon
ey that wo haye earned ourselves.
[ There ! Now 1"
Mr. Chesney stared at the girl with
incredulous eyes.
'And if you don' btlieve it, come
a id see how,' said Elma, flinging down
her towel. 'Mary Penn showed us.
She toid us everything, and gave us the
first swarm of bees. There are four
teen hives down under the south wall.
Spencer sold the honey for us ; and we
planted all the nice flowers that grow
down in the meadow, that you said
was too stony and barren even for the
sheep to pasture upon, and Will dug
and hoed around them after the chores
were all done, and we sent boxes and
bouquets of lillies and verbenas to the
city every day by Mr. Penn's wagon.
And we gathered wild strawberries be
fore the sun was tip, and got cherries
oat of the o'd lane, and the mo.iey is
all ours—every cent of it !'
'Honey, eh ?' said Mr. Ciio* ney,st *r
ing at the row of hives, for El ma had
dragged him out into the November
moonlight to the scene of action.
'Well, I've seen these many a time, but
I alwavs s'posed they belonged to
Squire Penn's folks. And flowers, and
wild berries ! Didn't think there was
so much money in 'em. Guess I'll try
the business myself next year. Queer
that the women -folks should have got
the start of me !'
And after that he regarded his family
with more respect. The mire fact
that they could earn money had eleva
ted them immensely in his sight.
But when spring came he lost his
able coadjutor.
Miss Elma incidentally announced
to him one day that she was going to
be married to Walter Penn the next
'And mamma is coming to live with
us,' added Elma. 'She can't stand the
damp house and this hard work any
But Mrs. Chesney did not go to the
Penn Farm. Mr. Chesney hired a
stout serving-maid, and lai 1 drain
pipes under the kitchen stoop.
If his wife really understood her bus
iness so well, it was worth while to
keep her well and active,he considered.
'I couldn't well leave papa, you
know,' said Mrs. Chesney to Elma.
'lie means well, and now that Rebecca
Heckel is coming here, and the kitchen
is dry, we shall get along nicely. I
wouldn't go back to the city for any
thing now.'
'Nor I,either,' said Elma. 'And oh,
mamma, 1 shall always love those bee
hives under the holly-hocks, for it was
there that Walter asked me to be his
wife !'
And Mrs. Chesney tearfully kissed
her danghter. She, too, had been hap
py once, and had her dreams.
It was to be hoped that Walter Ppnn
was made of different metal from
George Chesney.
To Elroa, however, all the world was
cooler de rose. Had she not the eter
nal t-lisman of i'outh and Love ?

A Level Headed Chemist.
What might haye proved a very trag
ical occurrence was adroitly nipped in
the bod the other day by a Parisian
chemist. An elegantly dressed young
woman, wearing a thick veil over her
face, went into a pharmaceutical estab
lishment at Clichy and asked for a
phial of yitriol. The chemist, whose
suspicions were aroused by the myster
ious manner of his fair customer, asked
her some questions, to which she re
turned evasive replies. lie then gave
her, instead of vitriol, a bottle of per
fumed water, and directed a man to
follow the fair damsel and to watch her
movements. The amateur detective
did so, and soon saw the woman take
up her position at a street corner, phial
in hand. After having carefully un
corked the bottle, she waited, and, as a
young man well-known in the neighbor
hood passed by, she (lung its contents,
with a yell of triumph, in his face. The
man received the perfumed water in his
eyes, but, although it only made him
smart for a moment, lie roared like a
bull of Rashan, and cried out that he
was blinded forever. Meanwhile, the
emulator of Marie lleer, who thought
she had inflicted a terrible punishment
011 her false-hearted Adonis, ran away
with the speed of an Atlanta, vainly
pursued by some of the bystanders who
had witnessed the scene. The chemist's
man, however, set even body's mind at
ease by describing the pious fraud em
ployed by his master tor the prevention
of another Parisian drama. Loston

A Modern Xmtippe.
.Tirti Akerswaaa small, tow-headed,
knock-kneed man, with irregular teeth,
which made his mouth look like a steel
trap twisted out of plumb, says the
i "Southern Bivouac." His wife was a
large, raw-boned woman, fully a head
taller and fifty pounds heavier than
Jim. She had the temper of a half
famished wildcat, and no darky just
"gittiu' religion" was ever half as much
afraid of the devil as Jim was of her;
he had reason to be. When she was
fairly on the war-path she breathed
chain lightning and flung cyclones from
the tip of her tongue. Nor did she con
tent herself with words only, however
bitter and furious. She very often
brushed the poor little wretch with a
hickory until ho felt as if lie had bor
rowed. his back of a saint fresh from
the grindiron.
One bright, golden, delicious alter,
noon in the latter part of May, Jim left
the patch where he had been hard at
work all day and "snuck een" to his
cabin by the hack way. He proceeded
hastily to doff his every-day clothes and
don his Sunday garments, casting fur
tive glances all the while at the blaek
browed, terrible dame sitting in the
front doorway knitting. With trem
bling haste he completed his prepara
tions and was shambling out again,
when his wife, previously apparently of
his presence, shot a fierce glance at
him, which made him jump almost out
of his shoes and brought the perspira
tion out from every pore.
' Whar you boun' fur V she esked.
4 1 'lowed I wuz gwine down to the
fish-fry fur a hour or two. Them boys
is a hevin' '
'Well, you 'lowed wrong. You jest
histeoff them close and go back inter
that patch and finish hoein' them per
taters. Don't you distress yerself 'bout
no fish-fries.'
'But I tole the boys I wuz gwine to
be thar.'
'Well, you tole 'em a lie.'
'But Ed Sykes and Ilank Evans is a
wait in' fur me now at the cross roads,
and I'd ruther not disappoint 'em.'
'Well, I'd ruther you would. Shet
up, now, and do ez votfre told.'
Jim gasped and quaked with fear ;
hut, for the first time in many years, he
thoroughly realized the tyranny under
which he was crushed. His heart was
set on going to a fish-fry, and in that
feeble, fluttering little organ *a faint
shadow, a dim eidolon of spirit became
suddenly- aroused. He hesitated a mo
ment, ventured even to return the gaze
of those glowing, wrathful eyes, and
then started, saying ;
'Well, I'm a-gwine.'
Great Jehosaphat ! Iloup-la !
She swooped on him like an owl on a
mouse. The air was tilled and darken
ed with dust and sandy hair and ago
nizing shrieks.
Ed Sykes and Hank Evans, at the
"crossroads," became convinced that
Jim's cabin had caught lire, and that
he was perishing in the flames. They
rushed in all haste to his assistance,
but as they neared the spot the clatter
subsided, and they heard a stern, femi
nine voice, which caused them to halt
and keep out of sight, say :
'Now I reckon you'll do ez yer tole.'
Then they recognized Jim's piping
voice," protesting between convulsive
sobs :

Sherman and the Youngest Soldier
General Sherman is famous for his
brusque manners. He has never al
lowed the effete and luxuriant East to
tame his wild Western nature. A few
years ago he was at a big meeting of
the Grand Army of the Republic at St.
Louis, when a young man approached
him and said :
'General, you don't know me, but I
have known you for a long time. I sup
pose I was the youngest soldier who
served with you during the war, and I
want to shake hands with my old com
mander.' Gen. Sherman looked at the
young man a moment and said, 'My
friend,l suppose at least 1000 men have
claimed the honor of being the young
est of my soldiers. How old were you
when you entered the service ?'
'I was just 13,' was the response.
'Well, if you were only 13,' said Gen
eral Sherman, 'all I have to say is that
you had better stayed at home with
your mother.'

Amusing a Millionaire.
A famous millionaire sat on the
edge of a table in the Casino at New
port one night and stared at his boots
in dismay.
'Yaw!' he yawned in an excess of
boredom as he raised his eyebrows
and rammed his hands deep into his
pockets, 'lt's slow; monstrously slow.'
Apparently it was. One or two
men in faultless attire smoked neer the
window. Others sprawled in languid
desperation in the deep arm-chairs, and
an eminent stock speculator added
drowsiness to it by snoring with sub
tle but penetrating regularity in the
corner. It was a sultry night, and
the negro waiters mopped their black
faces as they whispered together in the
corridor. The ennuied millionaire
could almost hear the lapping of the
water in the karbor against the sides
of his beautiful steam-yacht. His
horses moved uneasily in the heat
without and rattled the big pole chain
It was nearly midnight in the Queen
of American watering places and noth
ing was going on. The millionaire
kicked his heels peevishly against the
table and motioned to one of the
waiters. They all scrambled forward
in such haste that the oldest one slipped
and almost fell. The great man
smiled, whereat a wave of joy passed
over the dusky group, and all but one
retired with teeth in full review. Who
is unhappy when a millionaire smiles?
'ls thecampagne well iced?' asked the
man of means, good naturedly
'lt is indeed, sah. De las' bot'le
•wuz froze dead hard'.
'Bring me some.'
When the waiter poured it out it
was so cold that it dribbled slowly in
to the glass ftn d sent up a milk white
mist almost as thick as foam that
raced to the top of the glasses, while
the dew gathered in beads on the bot
tle. The millionaire smiled gently as
he gazed at ithe campagne, and then
he glanced at the panting waiter.
'Would you like to shiver, Thomas?'
he asked solemnly.
'Me, sah?' said the waiter with a
chuckle* 'Dereaint not'in in dis heah
wuld ud make me shivah t'night
sah— no'n' deedy.,
'Oh, yes, there is.'
'Scush me, sah, but I'm roastin', I
am; ri' I don' b'lieve I'll evah' be col'
'l'll make you shiver in two minutes
by the watch, or I'll give you fifty
'Go ahead, sah!'
Without more ado the railloinaire
took the champagne bottle from the
other's hand, turned it upside down
thrust it calmy down the back of the
darkey's neck, and left it there while
the campagne dripped gently down the
waiter's spine. Then, watch in hand,
he waited while the loungers sat up,
and the wuiters moved in from the
corridors with their eyes fairly start
ing trom their heads.
'Don' you shivah, yo fool,' said the
foremost of them in a hoarse whisper
to Thomas. "F y' do I'll —l'll kick
yo' head offen y' body shuh! Y' got
a chance fter pay me dem seving dol
labs now, an' if y' miss I'll lam y'— I
will fer a fac'.
Meanwhile the waiter stood there
with pursed lips, staring eyes, and
clenched fists. His head bent for
ward, and bis legs spread apart, while
his breath came in snorts. The
loungers were crowding round with
their watches in their hands making
bets rapidly, while the time wore slow
ly away. Presently the millionaire
i One minute!
Oh! moaned Thomas in a yoice like
the soulful roar of a cavern by the sea,
'l'm a-goin, I'm agoin!'
Remember dem seving dollyebs!
There was an awful hush, the sound
of the grinding of teeth, a wild 'Huh
wu-wu-whoooo!' followed by helpless
chattering, and Thomas stood shaking
like an aspen leaf, with one eye turued
appealingly on the seven dollar man,
while the other sought the face of the
millionaire. ODO after another the
waiters assayed the test, and for two
hours the Casino was the liveliest spot
in America. Then the famous mill
ionaire climbed contentedly to the seat
of his cart, and murmured as he drove
homeward in the moonlight, 'lt wasn't
so monstrously slow after all. ' — New

How Shrewd Busioess M*n Have
Solved a Great Problem.
"Is there a fatality among our prom
inent men ?" is a question that we oft
en ask. It is a question that perplexes
our leading medical men, and they are
at a IOSS to know how to answer it.
We sometimes think that if the phy
sicians would give part of the energy to
the consideration of this question that
they give to combating other schools of
practice, it might be satisfactorily an
The fights of "isms" reminds us oft
en of the quarrels of old Indian tribes,
that they were only happy when they
were annihilating each other.
If Allopathy makes a discovery that
promises good to the race, Homoeopa
thy derides it and breakes down its in
fluence. If Homoeopathy makes a dis
covery that promises to he a boon to
the race. Allopathy attacks it.
It is absurd that these schools should
fancy that all of good is in their meth
ods and none in any other.
Fortunately for the people, the merit
which these "isms" will not recognize,
is recognized by the public, and this
public recognition, taking the form of
a demand upon the medical profession,
eventually compels it to recognize it.
Is it possible that the question has
been answered by shrewd business
men ? A prominent man once said to
an inquirer, who asked him how he got
rich, "I got rich because I did things
while other people were thinking about
doing tliern." It seems to us that the
people have recognized what this fatih
ty is. and how it can be met, while the
medical profession hayeheen wrangling
about it.

rectly or indirectly, suffer from kidney
disease. Ileuce.. no reliable company
will insure a man except after a rigid
urinary examination.
This reminds us of a little instance
which occurred a short time ago. A
fellow editor was an applicant for a re
spectab'e amount of insurance. lie was
rejected on examination, because, un
known to himself, liis kidneys were dis
eased. The shrewd agent, however,did
not give up the case. He had an eye
to business and to his commission, and
said : "Don't you worry; you get half
a dozen bottles of Warner's safe cure —
all dealers keep it—take it according to
directions and in about a month come
around, and we will have another ex
