A JKAIiUUS MISTAKK.
Tom Horton IcanoJ back from tho brenk-
fast-tnblo anil looked nt tlio exquisite face of
Ills young wifo with unmistakable lovo him
Imiratloii shining in his brown eyes. Tom
ns a confirmed bachelor, his fiicndi thought
ntil n year ago he had met Edith Dunbar.
or wonderful beauty captivntcd him, rti
ell ns her charming simplicity ot character,
here were those who said thnt she was an
outrageous llirl nud only married him be
cause he had better prospects than her other
suitors j but Tom, during his six month of
married life, had beeu completely satisfied
itli his choice.
'Shall you be down to day, pet ?' honsked
crossing to her shlu and stoplng lo kis tho
lively f.ico upturned to meet his.
I think not. I've lots of domestic work
lo look niter tu-dny. I'm a woman with n
mission liow to love my huband nnd look
ell to tho ways of my household.
'Hut you tnusn't t-oil theso dainty hands
illi work. Uaiinot Mary do everything
there is to do?'
'No,' stio faid, drawing his face down uti
til his check rested against hers. 'You men
on'l uiideratund. There arc lots uf thiniM
nt require taste to perform that paid
icln can never do as well ns one's self.'
Well.1 do whatever lileasti yourself best,'
said Tom. 'I miit be oh", I suppose. 0, I
must clultigo this necktie before I go.'
Me wdnt up stairs llghlly.hummiiig a tune
and entered their chamber, unfa'tened tho
necktie and replaced it by another. Just
then ho rcmembeied that ho had a note to
write to fcend by the morning mail ; and be
itgtenibly forgetful,, ho thought he had
letter nit down at once to his uifo's writing
ek, that sat there, and write it before it
ipptid bi mind, He tossed over the con

ami. He snatched it up ami read it tflih a
sickening sens.ttion stealing over bim, und
the Ictttt dancing be (ore his eyes, for there
was a great deal of latent jealnnsy in Mr.
Tom llorfon's com position. Part ol it run
"I cannot bear Ibis horrible separation

Tom ci mlii d the teller in his hand und
tarted lo confront bis wife. Then usecord
thought i-lruek him. He would wait and

What ci lib! it mean? To bi.t excited fancy
that letter was damning roof of something
wroiiL'. oll, all wouten were fal-e. He
Utfd to believe so in his bachelor iliy", nnd
now he had been caught ami looltd by a
pretty face, as his club friends told him he
would be. Ho was in a terrible state of
mind, und when be reached his office be was
a filter subject for an asylum tbad n peacea
bloritlr.rn. He (-pupped at the ollice boy
mil nit-were d Ids' partner' question lit ran
dom, and nllogrlliir acted as any man doen
who is pnesetl by one maddening idea,
In tho alUrtioon ho bad occa-iou tn go
down In Hanover street. He was ttandlng
in n drug stote waiting fur a gentleinan wilh
whom be bud bustno", w lim em Ihe oppo.-ile
side of the street whom should be Eee tidi
ng along bright, smilini! nt.tl lovtly, in her
new- spring suit and blue-lineil opera cloak,
but bii wife I By her side walked ti genlh
inau-handi-nme, bronzed and distinguished
looking. His horrible tiitpieious of tho
morning were confirmed, 'Ilert' had begged
for ail interview and she had granted it!
Hero they were away down on Hanover
street where she knew bis busbies seldom
called" him! She bad told bim in the morn
ing that she did not mean to go out! He
could hardly refrain from rushing out ntul
confronting Iht-ni jt once, but had scuso
enough left In keep from makin; a scene on
the si reel. He stood with In bands on the
door ready to step out and follow them as
soon as they were safely put.
'You are ill,' said Iho clfikyin a tnno ol
alarm, as he noiicetlthe,w)iilu (rhtmlural exr
ion of his ftitii, aud'feiuing that he was
going to have a fit, '.Shall I mix you a
ilaft of something?' coming toward him
anxiously. 'Perhaps you are ubject to mch
turns.' kJ i
No, no, I'm all right,' Bald Tom In o
hoarse tone, that would not havo been re;
ngnizable by his frlendif, He stepped out
and followed them, forgetting his business
engagement, while the clerk looked afitr
him lu silent wonderment at his straugeac
lions. He kent his wife's while plumes In
klifht amidst tho eiowds who thronged the
sidewalk und tracked litem into Tremont
street. At n taloon they paused n moment
then went in, lie was seized wi(h an al
most irresistlblo Impulse to go In also, und
face them both, but the fear of u personal
paragraph in the next mornings papers ro-
strained him, He would go homo at night
and force her to explain tho whole. Then
if she loyed this other, who was writing such
passionate letters to her, she could go to him
He, Tom Horton, wanted no divided heart.
He spent the rest of tho afternoon in tor
incut that was hell enough to satisfy the ex
treme believers In endless punishment. His
love for Ida wife was that deep, intense kind
that olteli comes to men who havo reached
tho age of IKIrty-fivd' heart-whole; aud bus
plcion wai more cruel than ,a dagger.. iU?
rode home iu the horse far?, feeling that life
was aitiincrablo'shain, and woman's love a
base delusion, invented to deceive trusting
Edith met him nt tho door, dressed care
fully in the style he liked best, her faco
radiant. 'O, Tom, who do you think has
come ? Hut you could never guess,' and she
drew his face down to hers nnd kissed him
more excitedly than usual, then led him
along to tho parlor, Tom was all taken
aback. He could not get a chance to de-
iiouuco her ns ho had Intended. In Another
moment 6ho was Introducing a handsomo
gentleman who sat lhef, as her brother, and
Tom almost lost Ids breath, as ho mv It was
tho identical gentleman wliom ho had seen
with Edith In the nltertiooii. The sudden
relief from rt horribly oppressing suspicion
effected a complete change in him, nud his
features relaxed into the ir accustomed genial
expression ns ho grasped tho hanil ol his
brother in-law iu a hearty welcome.
Cnine'so unexpectedly in (he boat this
morningsaid IMitli, her lovely f.ico all aglow
for bo was her only lumber, ntul hud been'
absent for years. 'Wo were down towp this
afternoon and talked oT calling on you.
Then I thought I would rather introduce
you in our homo than in that dingy ollice.'
Join rather thought im his own miilil that
ho knew that they wero down together, but
tortures wouldn't bavj made hlin own to
them his suspicious.
'Supper is waiting,' said Edith, rising.and
they pased into the dinlu;-ioom, where a
table had been spread daintily. Tom-played
the agreeable host lo perfection, and found
himself Wondering if ho didn't dream about
that horrid letter in tho morning, yet lie bad
a sort otiunreul feeling ns if this brightness
was a tort of fraud. Ho had never appeared
lo better advantage, Edith thought, her
her heart swelling with pride in him beforo
her elcg.lnt, traveled brother. After supper
she brought out a rich, lovely blue silk und
held its soil shimmering folds iu tho gas-,
'See what Smart brought mo 1' Did you
overset) nything half so elegant, Tom?'
and sha held it up to her pink cheek. 'See
tbislovely Crape "bawl, too,' und she shook
out its graceful folds nn.l tlir?w it over her
boauliltil 1'iniiliit-n iu no :r,i-ti' liishiiu.
Tiiev coti'il nut help rejrirdi u her with a'l
miratioui and her brother thought bo would
not exchange a s.veel American woman for
all the foreign benulies who had over capti
vate I ids fancy,
'Woman's vanity,' bo said, teivingly ;
'How can you find any room in your heart
to love a hiHb.uid, IMith?'
'I'm large-hearted, Stuart; I can lovo moru
than one object at once, she said, stoopiog
to kis him, anil then passing round and
perching herself nn l.er husband's knee, 'I
like prolly things, and Tom likes to seo mo
in them, don't you dear?' And Tom,llioiigh.
he winced a littlo at her first remark, could
not resist her, and actually found hi'liitelf
thinking leniently of Ihe unknown who
leved her so hopelessly. They spent a
pleaant evening. Stuart Dunbar was a
brilliant talker and entertained them until a
late hour. Tom almost forgot the weight be
bad borne during the day in tho interest hu
felt, and when it did cross hii mind it was
wilh a hope that it would turn out like the
When at lat Stuart Ijnbar had been
shown! to his.chamber and they bad retired
to their room, the eight of her writing dctk
brought back tho horrible certainty of the
morning that tliera was something wrong,
lie rctol veil to act tho straightforward rolo
.towards her, and kt ow the worst.
"Edith," ho said, 'I went to your writing
deik this morning to look for sumo paper
and accidentally saw a letter which has given
me a great deal of uneasine.ts.'
The troubled sound in bis voice struck
strangely on Edith's ear.
'What was it?' sho questioned, turning a
puzzled faco from the mirror whero was she
uiicnmbiiigher fair hair. 'Idon'tundorstabd
'A letter from a gentleman, addressing
you in such terms as are insulting to auoth
cr man's wife.'
Edith's blue eyes expanded to twice their
usual idz3 for a moment, and then a light
dawned over her face, and she began lo
laugh. Peal after peal rolled from her clear
throat, and Tom began to feel as if he had
sold' himself this timo with a vengeance.
'In Heaven's name what do you mean ?'

She went to the desk and tossed over the
contents until the foutul the missive which
bad uptet Tom's peace of mini).
'This is a letter which an old school friend
of mine. Edith Woods, inclosed to mo yes
terday, from a despemto lover of her. I
suppose lie has neon just as neart-urouen
twenty times beforo as he appears to be m
this cpittle. Wo both know him of old, so
sho ju-t encloted it to ino for a joke. She
had ilirled a little with hirn, aud when sho
drew back this was the result. Hut to think
you should find it, nnd suppose it was from
a lover uf initio, it's too funny.' And she
laughed again until tho tears enmo to her
Don't laugh, Edith, please don't,' pleaded
Tom, 'You must own it looked rather sus
picious, Don't tell your brother of this. I
urn ashamed of the matter now. I ought to
have gone to you at unco nnd asked you to
explain, instead of going off suspecting you
l utgivo me.'
Of course I will. Im sorry you have felt
badly about it. Aud don't fear that I'll tell
Stuait. I'm too anxious for him tn have a
good opinion of his little Mter's husband to
let him know that ho doesn't trust her fully
Tho slight reproach in Edith s words nnd
tone made Tom call himself a tool, He
caught htr in his arms and kissed her fer
vently ntpl vowed never to ilijlru-t her again,
if circiimttantial cvidenco was ten times as
strong ngaiiitt her.
'Hut loin, soon I'm going to senil for

tell her how near liert Fielding's letter

It's too good to keen from an old school

Jlr. D. C. Richmond, of Ohio, relates
in an articlo nt large without credit the re
sults of observation and experience of shee p
killing dogs from which he'was quite a suf
ferer during twenty-five years. They slaugh
ter their victims by tearing open the lame
veins of tho neck and sucking the blood
they never can be broken of ibis trick. A
single dog will sometimes kill sheep, but
generally there are two often a large and
a small dog. The Drat lime a dog kills a
sheep ho will suck tho blood, aud then cat
some and be sali-fieii. Ho will toon learn
to kill several, t-uckiug the blood unt(l he is
full caiiug no flesh tbo first night. Any dog
that will chute sheep when out alone, will
tooner or later kill them. A greedy dog ivjll
sometimes kill sheep in tho daytime, but
litis seldom happens, Nearly all sheep
killing is ibne by dogs in the night ; they
are very cunning about it, ollen going a long
distance Irom homo when tberu are plenty
of sheep close by. At a preventive measure
bells are good ; not small one, but threo
gool siz-d bells for e'ach hundred sheep.
If, in spile of this prcoution, a sheep is
killed say nothing. Skin it and let the car-ci-s
lay in Iho same place. The first night
alter killing, the dogs will not come, the
second night they will bo on hand. Cut
four or five gashes In the shouldei of the
dead she-ep, put a small amount of first class
strychnine in Ihe gashes, and the next morn
ing j tm will be sure to have dead dogs. Jlr.
R. has sometimes killed four dogs iu one
night. He adds that "it is well enough to
keep tho mouth shut," and concludes with
mention of a curium iticideut ; ' One morn
ing I found a small yearling killed, wilh a
small round hole eaten out of his fore shoul
der. It puzzled me. I knew it was not n
common dog. I told my neighbors to stun
up their dogs. 'Ihe tecond night after kill
ing I put in the strychnine, and the next
morniug I bad the largest red fox I ever
r.urouragf nicnt to Farmers.
The American Cultivator thus encourages
farmers : "In comparison with the long-
continued prostration of other industries
nnd tbo severe depression of general husi
ne-is. farmers mav congratulate themselves
that at least, through the long hours of toil
and tho practice of close economy, they
have been able lo secure tlio necessaries of
life for their families and themselves, A
bushel of com is woith just ns much to
day in the feeding of a family ns it ever
was, while it will buy as much sugar or as
many yards of cotton cloth as in the average
year, and it is only when sold for cash, or
when applied to the payment or old delils,
that Iho farmer leally suffers from its low
market value. Ilrigbter days are coming
and tbo severe les-on-of economy and strtig.
trie with debt will havo a salutary effect in
avoiding new liabilities in the future, and in
making nil clav-.es more cautious and more
thoughtful in their plain.
No one thing Is moro needed 011 the farm
than good substantial covers lor both hay
and grain stacks. They are easily and cheap
ly made of stout factory cloth of the reejul-
site size, and being tightly stretched over the
hay, when roughly stacked with the horse
fork will save it perfectly Irom showers nud
even extended ruins. As the bauds follow
to rvtop the stacks und finish all secure, the
covers are removed to other stacks, and thus
do duty during the entire season. So with
grain. A rover in catching weather will pay
for Itself sometimes In saving a single stack
from serious damage. They may be used at
amWlmo for protecting loads of hay when
belt moved, and for a variety of uaea about
the farm, They should be put 111 complete
order, that when haying fairly coinineucei
there should be no drawback to continuous
work, and the crop may bo scut to the stack

It is related that when the four little boya
who rect ntly p.uccd stones on the New York
elevated lUtlrmid were iu the Tombs await
ine ex.ttnin iliou they showed much anxiety
about their record as 'nicu' boys. When
tpiestioued one day by a isttor as to tho
ho ks 1' -v res ', ,. tilr,v largest at first de
clared inai luvj did not have much timo to
read, they had to study w) haid , but when
fit-tber iin i.l they fi.ially admitted that
tuij occasionally did read Sunday school
books, if allowed to sit up a few moments
after :31 n'cloc'-t iu the, nrening. No fur
ther c iiiUt-9-in .1 uiuhl be obtained. They
stoutly maintained thatS.itnhiy school books
formed their sole ll'er.iry relasatiou. Theso
t'irw b ijs, it will b-rtuieiuhered.nero about
thirteen yeais of age; they claimed also to
h ive been incited to the deed by a little fel
low eiolj nine yi ,irs ol ago. This last was a
brihi. truilr buy. When rjuestiousd he said
ue enuiu re id all except big words ; that ho
liked Uat the PiIic-j Gazette, the Boys' and
Girls' Weekly and such family papers.
Tlies" facts and ihe story published in
Monday's Tribune of tbo small boy who has
run Uway irom Hullalo so many times, but
who al.su dedans that be reads nothing but
Sunday School bonks, iudieale perhaps that
the boys themselves are beginning to under
stand that much of lhejuveui.o literature of
lei-day is milk lor iht-ni. lu speakiug of
these milters, Superintendent Joues, of the
liiiu-e ol Iteliige on lUnduil n Island, said :
The boys that wo havebero do not, however'
often deny their taste lorlkal sort of reading.
If they urc allowed their choice they almost
always expruss a desire to get hold of tho
Boys' and Girls' Weekly, the Boys of Am
erica, the Police Gazilte, or similar publica
tions. Jlany copies of these papers are sent
10 them by friends because they can be pur
chased cheap'y, Wo slop afl such however.
There is a library in each school room here,
and the interest of '7,U00 is appropriated
every year to ii-aking additions to these
shelves. Tbo books are books ol history
ami travel wilh home fiction. Wheu they
cau't get auj thing el-o tho boys will read
iheui, finally they grow fond of them. Wild
thrilling tales unsettle minds aud hinder our
efforts to teach the lesion that they must
work carefully if they expect to succeed lu

"Could you tell,' asked the inquirer,"wby
boj s read this bad kind of juvenile litera

"Such readers have vivid and unhealthy im
aginations. The most ordinary incident is
so colored by them that the truth can hardly
be recognized, They aro incapable, appar
ently, of slating facts ns they occur. With
them convicts are heroes ; fathers, mothers
and keepers of any kind are tyrants.
The Btories they relate to each other are
something wonderful, and bear a strong ro
