Better than gold is n conscience clear,
Though toiling for bread in an humble sphere,
Doubly blcsicd with content and health,
Untried witli the lust or tho cares of wealth ;
Lowly living nnd loft thought
iVdorn and cnnoblo n poor man's cot ;
For mind nnd morals, in naturo's plan,
Are the genuine tests ot a gentleman.
Better than gold is tho sweet repose
Of tho sons of toil when their labors cloe j
Better than gold is the poor man's sleep,
nd tho balm that drops on his slumber deep,
Bring sleepy draughts to the downy bed,
Whero luxury pillows its aching head.
But ho his pimple opiato deems
A shorter routo to the land of dreams.
Better than gotd is n thinking mind,
That in the realms of books can find
V treasure surpassing Australian ore,
And livo with tho great and good of yore ;
The sago's loro and the poet's lay,
The glories of empires pass away ;
Tho world's great dream will thus enfold,
iV year of pleasure bettter than gold.
Better than gold is a peaceful homo ;
Where nil the fireside characters come,
The thrino of love, tho heaven of life,
Hallowed by mother, or sister, or wite ;
However hnmblo the home may be,
Or tried with sorrow by heaven's decree,
Tho blosiings that never were bought nor sold,
And centre there, are better than gold.

Select Story.
All quiet ; a bright fire burning In the
polished stove, the pussey iat purring sleep
ily on the rug ; the clock ticking like silver
drops of water on the mantel-piece ; and
Mrs. Ives' needle glancing in and out of the
work like a small ray of lightning. The
children were all tucked snugly up in bed,
for Mrs. Julius Ives was the most devoted
and obedient of conjugal partners. It was
an exquisitely neat room a room where the
sweet home element predominated in every
nook and corner a room to which the tired
business man might look forward all day, a
haven of rest and peace.
The clock struck eight ; pussy Btretched
herself drowsily before the fire, and Mr.
Ives laid down tho paper with a preparatory
'Ahem I
'And now, Melissa,' he said authoritative
ly, 'you may brine me your house bills.'
Poor Mrs. Ives started in her chair as if a
cannon-ball had ominously thundered Into
the silence ofthe cosy little apartment. How
much she dreaded the weekly recurrence of
this domestic ukase was only known to her
self. It was. the skeleton in her closet the
one embittering element of her happy home
life the haunting ghost that po diplomacy
had yet enabled her to exercise. Yet, like
a well trained wife as she was, she brought
tbo tiny packet of bills, and sat down meek-
at her husband's side.
The was a pretty woman, tall and grace
ful, with straight, regular features, rosy
cheeks, and soft, wistful eyes that looked
like brown velvet ; a woman whose bands
were always white and delicate, and whoso
dresses always seemed to fit by magic
Nor was Mr. Julius Ives a disagreeable
specimen of mankind to look upon. He was
large and finely formed, with black bair,
strongly disposed to curl at the ends, and
bright, black eyes. Yet, nevertheless, there
was a certain curl in Mr. Ives' upper Hp
that savored somewhat of the imperative
'Butter again i That's five pounds we have
used within the week,' moaned Mr. Ives,
checking off the various items of the grocer's
bill with the. little gold pencil that hung at
his watch-chain, 'My dear, does Bridget
grease the kitchen pans with butter ?'
Mrs. Ives cheek glowed.
'Now, Julius, what Is the use of talking
in that sarcastic sort of way ? You know
very well that a family like ours cannot sub'
siit on air and you like to have all the cook
Ing very rich you know.'
'Rich I I should think so. Ham-cod
fish. By the way, Melissa, Jones says they
only buy meat three tlmea a week have It
cold every other day. Ills wife knows bow
to economize, I suppose you haven't the
least idea what becomes of the joints after
they have left the table V
I bave no doubt' of Bridget's perfect hon'

'Oh, no of courso not. But I do think,
Melissa, it is a wife's duty to pay some at
tention to her husband'a pocket'
'Why our bills are not disproportionately
large, Julius.'
'They must be, my dear they must be.

bills rather empatically on the table, 'v

The milk, butter, cheese and vegetables

and poultry were from her own barnyard and
pasture. I don't think it fair to Institute a
comparison between her expenses nnd

'Oh, that's the way you women all talk I'
said Mr. Ives impatiently. All I know is,
that there is a screw loose somewhere. You
must economize.'
'But, Julius'
'My love, don't you see I'm just lighting
my cigar ? I can never smoko when my
mind is in any way disturbed. Suppose we
dismiss the subject ? I am quite sure I have
stated my wishes on the subject with suffici
ent distinctness.'
Mrs. Ives bit her lip and sewed away
vigorously on her work. But if her thoughts
could have descended iu a shower bath of
words on Mr. Julius Ives' head, how ther
would have startled him from his calm com
placency 1
'Yes. I'll economize,' thought Mrs. Me-
lissa,vindictively digging the thread through
tho seams, .'I'll givo him -enough of re
trenchment. Why will a man relinquish
his dignity so far as to interfere in matters
he cannot possibly understand I I wonder
if he thinks nino persons live on a pint of
milk and two baked potatoes a day ? I won
der if he knows that I make all the pud
dings and pies, and give out the tea and
coffee, and superintend everything every
thing myself? He might know, if he
would take the trouble to find out instead of
indulging in sweeping denunciations. I won
derif he suspects that I trim my own bonnets,
and make my own dresses.and make my little
ones' clothes, and save unnecessary outlay ?
It s almost enough to make one wish they
had never got married.'
But then Melissa thought of the rosy lit
tle ones fast asleep up stairs, and csncluded
that on the whole there were so many sun
beams in her lot.
'Hello, Elmer I Why, surely this is not
you ?'
'Well, I don't know who else it can be,'
coolly remarked tho handsome, bronzed
looking gentleman, who had lounged into
Mr. Ives' office. 'And I've brought Harry
Lamarque.with me. You remember him
don't you ?'
'Remember him should think so. And
we haven't met before since our college days.
Well, I declare ; this is a curious coincidence.
You'll both of you promise to come and
dine with me to-day at five o'clock, won't
you ? Come, Im' sure you haven't any
other engagement, and I'll introduce you to
my wife."
'I'll come,' said Elmer promptly, and I'll
engage to bring Lamarque with me.'
'But you are not going ?'
'I must I have no end of business to
transact ; but we'll have a regular chat at
dinner, old boy.'
Melissa bad hardly despatched her little
band of chubby-faced children to school
that morning, when the office boy came
knocking at the door with a note.
From Mr. Ives, ma'am, there ain't 110
The note ran as follows
"I shall bring two old college mates, El
mer and Lamarque, to dinner. Let it be on

it in her desk with a comical smile hovering
around her mouth.

en with clouds ; and Mr. Ives' nose was de
cidedly tingled with blue as he ushered his
two shivering guests into the parlor.
'Walk in,"gentlemen walk in and warm
yourselves,' he said rubbing his bands with
hospitable fervor.
But contrary to all'his expectations, con
trary to the usual domestic arrangements
prevailing in that house-hold, there was no
fire in the stove the Air .was as damp and
chilly as that of a mausoleum.
Julius bit his lip and repressed the rather
demonstrative expression that was rising on
his tongue.
'Be seated, geutlemen, I will rectify this
mistake Immediately,' he said, leaviog the
'How Is this ? No fire and the room like
an ice-well'' was his petulant exclamation as
he met his wife in the hall.
'Coal is seven dollars a ton, Julius It
Is necessary for us to economize,' said Me
lissa, demurely.
'Send the maid this minute to kindle a
fire,' said Julius, his teeth chattering.
'And my dear, you ate surely not going
Into tjie room In that faded old dress?'
'Of course T am. My best silk is begin
ing to wear, and as I can't afford another,
I must be as economical as possible.'-''
Julius Ives made a queer grimace: he
didn't at all likethe idea of swallowing his
own words. And Melissa walked into the
the presence of his friends, faded old dress
antl all.
'Six o'clock isn't dinner nearly ready ?'
asked Mr. Ives, consulting his clironometor,
with a sort of warning glance at his wife.
Melissa rose, and at the same Instant din
ner was anounced.
Now Mrs. Ires was a capital house keepei
who possessed the faculty ot geettng up
tempting dinners on short notice. So Julius
naturally expected a repast suitable to the
occasion, What was his dismay on behold
log the cold hacked jolntof yesterday, flank
od by a few potatoes, Elmer and Lamarquo
took their seata with polite unconsciousness,
but Julius looked btack as a thunder
'Melissa; what does this mean ?' ho whisp
ered, 'Does what mean, my love ?' asked Me
lissa, with n face of the most innocent won
der in the world.
Just at that moment tho little Ives burst
Into the room shabby And patched. As a'
general thing Julius wai passing proud of
bli pretty, well dressed children,
'Go nnd get dressed my dears,' ho said
sternly. 'What on earth does nurso mean
by allowing you to come down stairs in this
outlandish manner ?'
'Woaredrelhed, papa,' lisped out Master
July, with the boldness of conscious recti
tude. 'Mamma laid out the clothes for uth.
She thays 1th eoon ccon '
But Mr. Julius Ivei hurried' and hustled
the little ones out of the room without aoy
further explanation.
'Melissa,' he said earuestly, drawing his
wife to one side, into the bay window, 'what
Is the matter ? Are you crazy ?'
'Not crazy, love,' sweetly answered Me
lissa, 'only trying to follow the example of
Mrs. Jones, and retrench,'
'But, my dear '
'Pardon me, Julius ; you said that my
extravagant housekeeping was 'wasting you
out of house nnd homo. I think after this
you will hardly venture to make that accusa
tion a second time.'
'My dear, I I I was a fool,' said Julius
with with a choking sensation under his cra
vat.' 'I wn't. interfere In housekeeping af
fairs again, 1 promise you. I am quite con.
vinced that I know nothing whatever about
the subject. Hereafter I will leave the mat
ter entirely in your hands.'
'Entiroly and without Interference?' asked
Mrs. Ives doubtfully.
'Entirely and without Interference,' said
Mr. Ives decisively.
Mrs. Ives turned to her puzzled guests :
'Gentlemen, will you please walk into the
other room ?' she asked with a calm self-
possession that rather astonished them. As
she spoke, tho folding doors were thrown
back, revealing an elegant llttlo apartment
beyond. Julius walked to the head of the
table with a most whimsical face. There
were roast fowls and a ham, while various
vegetables were arrayed in tempting proxi
mity. Tho glass and sliver were all in a
glitter, nnd a dainty llttlo desert was neatly
arranged on the Bide board, Julius Ives'
whole face cleared with magical promptitude.
He turned round and gave his wife a hearty
kiss before he commenced to carve the tur
key. What Messrs, Elmer and Lamarque
thought just then is not on record; but when
Melissa came in subsequently to the after
dinner cigars, with the little Iveses cluster
ing about her as fresh and rosy as so many
pink and white daisies, they must have con
cluded that Julius knew what he was about
when he married that pretty woman, with
her brown eyes and coral-red mouth.
And before the evening was out, Mr. Ives
concluded that his domestic discomfiture
was too good a joke to keep to himself, and
so confided the whole story to his friends.
'Of course Mrs. Ives was right,' said El
'To be sure she was,' assented Lamarque.

Casey's Itemarkakable Adventures.
A Montana Mail-Carrier Who Lived
for Ten Days on Tobacco and Snow.
Casey carried what is known as the horse'
back mail, but which is, in fact, carried by
a two-wheeled vehicle like a sulky, from
Sun River to'the Twenty-Eight Mile Springs,
On the 27 ult. he started from the former
place. There was a blinding snow storm at
the time, and the road across the prairie
was wholly lost. As he did not reach the
end of his drive at trie appointed time It was
assumed that he had lost nis way, and this
theory proved to bo .well founded. There
were not wanting brave men both at Sun
River aud Helena, to undertake the search
for the missing man ; but. their most ardu
ous efforts were in vain. On the 3d Inst.
Mr. William Rawe rcachen Benton, and
was iuf'.r m-,1 nf the circumstances. The
weather was fearfully cold ; but this did not
deter him from the attempt tbat humanity
dictated. Mounted on a horse ho set forth
and in due time found s, dim track where it
seemed probable that Casey had left the
main road. Following this his labors were
rewarded on the 5th Inst, by findine the
driver about twenty miles north of Twenty
Eight Mile Springs. When Casey was found
he was sitting in his cart, which the hone
was drawing slowly and painfully along,
He was 111 a doze and Mr, Rowe shouted to
him once or twice before he was roused to
consciousness. It was then found that his
right foot and leg were frozen nearly to tho
knee, and tbat bis left foot was In the time
condition. It is believed that hie injuries
are not serious and that he will not suffer
the loss of either limb. His story was soon
told ; and with bis recollection of his expe
ience'and what Mr. Rowe learned in hi9
search is wonderful beyond fiction. The
driver had been wandering over the track'
less prairie for ten days and nights without
food or shelter and with a-tempereture nev
er above zero. All this time he had moved
in a perfect clrclo and had picketed his
horse aud camped almost every night in ab
most the same spot. More remarkable Btill,
he had daily passed within a mile and a half
ofthe Twenty-eight Mile House which was
bis destination. All this time, amid suffer
ing which would have crushed an ordianary
man, Bob Casey bad only one thought, that
he mutt stay with the mail and getjit through
whatever befell him. And he did ; not a
single package was lost. Starving, half
frozen and daztd by exposure and privation,
It was not of himself ho thought; his duty
was still uppermost in his mind. Here was
heroic stuff, how many such cau the postal

Diptitrla li Milk.
It Is said to be an established fact that milk Is
frequently an agent for the diffusion of dis
ease. Epidemic outbreaks of typhoid or en
teric fever have more than once been traced
to a common supply of Infected milk, In
these cases, however, the Injurious character
of the milk has been attributed to lis con.
tamlnatlon from external sources, at by
means of Impure air or impure water, con
taining the germs of the disease. But a more
startling theory concerning the epidemic
agency of milk .has recently been put for
ward in England, and demands attention
from the sanitary authorities In this country
In view ofthe present prevalence of dlpthe
rla in so many localities.
It Is possible, not to say probable tbat
dlptlieria has its origin in the diseased con
dition of milch cows. Such at least Is the
Inference which must be drawn from the
carefully observed facts of two epidemics in
England, both of recent occurrence, one in
North London and the other at Woking.
They indicate that a disease of the odder
known as Qarget, arid generally regarded by
dairymen as insignificant, may so affect the
quality of the'mltk as to produce diptherla
in the consumers.
Inquiry leaves no donbt that milk from
cows having garget finds its way into the
market in considerable quantities. Only a
portion of the udder is usually attacked by
the disease, and the milk yielded by the
other quarters dp not manifest any such
change in quality as would ordinarily lead to
its rejection. Indeed, so indifferently is the
affection looked upon by the men having
the charge of cows that they seldom inform
their employers of its existence. A mem
ber of the Pathological Society of London,
who was led to Investigate the subject lately
found several cases of garget among bis own
cattle, although his bailiff had not thought
them important enough to mention.
The circumstances ef the North London
epidemic of diptherla satisfied the sanitary
officer charged with its investigation that
the disease was distributed by the milk sup
ply, and that the milk had not been con
taminated by any influences from without.
These conclusions are confirmed by the like
ppinions of distinguished physicians t whom
the facts bave been snbmltted. They natu
rally lead to the question whether any spe
cial disease could prevail, without attract
ing particular notice, among the caws from
which the milk came. The answer is that
garget is just such a disease. And the be
lief that the apparently slight affection in
cattle may be transformed into diptherla,
or may induce ".that disease in the human
subject, is strengthened by the recent dip-
thcritic outbreak at the Princess Mary's
Home at Woking.. Garget was found to be
prevalent on the farm which furnished
miitc to that institution.
The proceedings of the Pathological Soci
ety of London In reference to this possible
connection between diptherla and disease
in cows .supply 'abundant evidence of the
gravity with which the medical (profession
regard the subject. It has been referred for
investigation to a. committee of highly qual
ified physicians, one of whom is Dr. Burdon
Sanderson, and the results of their inquiry

Counterfeit Coin.
The amount of counterfeit coin in circula
tion in the United States Is said to be tl,-
000,000, besides the great number of genu-
ine pieces made fraudulent by the removal
of irt ofthe metal. Wholly spurious coins
are always lighter than the good ones, but
an exception, described by the Scientific
American, Is a $5 piece made of gold or til
ver, and really costing the counterfeiter
$3 40 each. Various ingenious modes are
used In stealing gold from coins. The most
common is 'sweating, which is done by using
the' coin as the anode in an electro plating
bath, the gold being abstracted from it and
deposited on another surface. As much as
two dollars worth of gold can be taken in
that way from a double eagle, without mat
ing any difference" that is detected except
by weight. A less scientific plan is to file
the smooth parts ofthe surfaco and reburn
ish the spots. The most extensive fraud is

temporary separations, being 4,74 for every
