It was just then, before I had ascend

for I walk that way slowly that tho
door knob hesitatingly.eaiitionsly turned
and I was hard at work again, pen in

the other on the door.

that was soinebodv i-hould come in. I

won, for she was seated.
Then I swept my books from me with
an air of relief, as if any problem she
might agitate would be child's play
compared to what I had just passed
I had not yet so much as caught the
color of her eyes, and couldn't but won

unless she was meditating a sudden

wretch across the way who had a few
gray hairs and more experience, you
know but a bad attack of rheumatism,
too, thank heaven ! which I devoutly
trusted was keeping him homo on such
a day as this.
"I want you to write a will," she sud
denly began, in a half hailing voice.
"Certainly, maihtme," I answered, no
bly icsolviug to hticngthen tho faith
within her, and I pulled half a quire of
legal cap toward me, and thought of tho
solemn opening aud the weighty form

'It's to be my husband's will." sho
added. "Ilo dure." not eoino out on such a

for the lir-t time that day.
"Hadn't I better come to your house?"
I ventuied to suggest. ,
"Oh, no! not now," she nnsweied,
with a little sigh. "It might excite him
too much. lint he may be belter to

you then. It will not make any differ

peeling anxiously at inc.
'Of course, iiiadame, if hu then fully
and voluntarily adopts it as his, it is just
the same as it I took it all down from
his own lips "
"Well, wc want ho wai'ts to leave

Tho time dragged nlowly,very slowly,
and I novyr felt more genuine relief than
in hearing heavy wheels grinding
through the mud and slush, and a knock
ing at tho door to notify me the carriago
1 sprang into the carriage and away
we dashed throiit'b such darkness that I
t could not for tho life of tnc discover to
. what portion of the town wo were being
j driven. But in a very short time we
. came to a sudden halt, and the carriage
door opened, uio coachman conducted
me up tnc orown stone steps, where the
open door was already awaiting me, and
1 stepped into the dimly limited hall.
1 As I did so, a lady whose figure and
manners told me was Madame Cecil,
' glided from a side room, and with a lit
tie plaintive smile, bado me follow her
at once. lint n that instant I had read
her face and perhaps her character.
She might have been thirty-live, only
she didn't look it, with those brilliant
black eyis, peaily teeth and elegant
manners ; but behind all these I read
the pojilivo force that turned to good

evil would sacrifice overything to suc

ilenlly I lollowed lier.

me from his sunken eyes.
"lie will read it to jou now, Mr. CV

I felt that I must. I seated myself

Despite the want of universal homo
geneity, there aro great numbers of per
sons hero who show an exceptional
uniformity of tast.-s nnd dispositions in
pint the outcome possibly of Quaker
discipline. The past with its memories
seems to serve as a medium for holding
together thu diverse elements of tho
present. Tho long lows of red houses,
with maible trimmings and white pan
elled shutters neatly provided with bolts
(the upper-story shutters being carefully
painted green or slate), typify outwardly
and materially tho Quaker influence,
though theio mo many innovations of
brown stoncj green stone, colored mar
ble, and variegated tiles in tho later
dwellings. And here it may bo said
that in tho new public building for the
city government, and in the placing of
sundry other edifices, Philadelphia is
foitunatoin securing aichitectural ef
fects of mass aud group not common in
our cities. Speaking of the past, wo
must give duo weight to the presence of
Independence Hall and Carpenter's Halt
in connection with tho important nat
ional history of the town. It is siguili
cant, further, that Philadelphia should
have been first in so many things. The
former mint was tho first building put
up by Federal authority in any part of
the Hilled States. The olili'st tvpe
foundry in tho country is still cairied on
here, and the oldest daily paper appears
every morning with renewed youth. Of
tho thousands ol national banks organ
ized since the beginning of tho civil war,
tho eailiest to bo incorporated was in
Philadelphia; and so too tho Union
league of this city was tho primary or
ganization of its kind. Henry C. Carey
was the originator of the book trade
sales. The lirst house built in the col
ony was the P.-nn house, in Letitia
Court, which remains standing to this
dayj and human beings likewise seem to
have an unrivalled faculty for surviving
in this fortunate territory. A case in
point is General Hubert Pntteion. who,
emigrating from Iielaud in 17i)2, served
on the American sido in the war of 181,
organized thu Pennsylvania militia, dis
tinguished himself in thu Mexican war,
led a division in tho war for the fuion,
was an extensive manufacturer, con
stantly active in society, and shortly be
foro this article was writon attended a
dinner in honor of his own ninetieth
birthday. The istablishmont of turn
pikes and the development of public
hospitals aro other matters in which
Philadelphia was in advance It can
boast likewise in the llaldwiu Locomo
tive Works, an establishment which
began, in the earliest days of American
railroad building, with thu painful man
tifacturo of a single locomotive, and has
kept pace with the inarch of that indus
try until now it turns out five hundred
locomotives a year, and employes three
On every sido we are led back to tho
day of beginnings. Thu largest indus
trial establishments, like the works just
named, the Diston Saw Company, or tho
hugu Dobson carpet mill, of wide celeb
rity, have grown up within a genera
tion's timu from small foundations. Old
houses aro carefully preserved, somc
tiines with tho inteiior furnishings of
their Revolutionary prime; and' even
when historic buildings are disturbed,
the old associations cling to their suc
cessors. Tho Friends' Hospital, where
Longfellow caused Gabriel to find Evan
geline, has vanished (lo the dissatisfac
tion of antiquarian authorities), but the
legendary valuo he gave to it remains;
and it is mentioned ns a point of iuteiest
connected with ex-Minister Welsh's
house that it covers part of tho hospital
site. This constant recurrence of the
past in the Philadelphia of to-day is in
keeping with a conservatism character,
istio of tho place, manifested in various
wajs, and commonly explained by the
Quaker origin of the city. Hut that
quality is really due to other causes.
The main fact about Philadelphia,
differencing it from our other largo cen
tres, is that it-rests its importance on the
power.to. produce tangible things of
solid use fulness. It adds value. Some
coinnierco there is, and there aro banks
and bankers wielding extensive mone
tary influence ; but the greater number
of inhabitants, both huniblu and con
spicuous, aro inteioated in manufactures.
Tlie mass of tho people work hard for a
living at the business of mukhxj some
thing which their labor renders vahu.ble.
Gaining money in this way, they appre
ciate its worth, become saving, 'and in
vest their savings in useful property.
Whero space is plenty, where rents are
low, and building associations are ready
to lend money, it becomes the habit
among salaried men, mechanics, and all
persons of small means to acquire or
biro a separate house ; and this lnultiiili
caiion ot homes increases the proportion
of responsible and cautious eiitizens
with n high average of intelligence. I
may instance a carrier on one of the
morning papers, who still continues his
rounds, though hu is also a botanist of
good repute, and a member of tho Acad

Wo uso tho oft-quoted illustration,
"sleeping ns sweetly as an Infant," be
cause this slumber of a child follows lin
mediately after its stomach is complete
ly filled with whole some food. The sleep
which comes to adults long hours after
tho partaking of food, and when tho
stomach is nearly or quite empty, is not
after the typo of infantine repose. There
is all the difference in the world between
tho sleep of refreshment nnd the Bleep of
To sleep well the blood that swells the
veins in thu head during tho busy hours
must flow back, leaving n greatly diniin
ishetl volume behind tho brow that late
ly throbbed with such vehemence. To
digest well this blood is needed at the
stomach and nearer tho fountains of life.
It is a fact established beyond tho possi
bility of contradiction that sleep aids di
gestion, and the process of digestion is
conducive of refreshing sleep. It neeels
no argument to convince us of this mu
tual relation. The drowsitiess which al
ways follows the well ordered meal is it
self a testimony of nature to this inter
dependence. The waste of human life by this lesson
is very great. The daily wear and tear
of tho body might bu restored moro fully
than it usually is if this simple rule was
not so systematically violated. Sleep is
wonderfully recuperative, but it may bo
shorn of half its benefits by unfavorable
conditions. Foul air in the chamber
leaves tho sleeper almost exhausted in
the morning as when weary with the
day's labors he sank upon his bed. A
gnawing stomach, empty of food, takes
out of the nightly sleep that refreshing
sciiso of comfort which properly belongs
to it. It leaves the blood to tlnob in the
healed brow, and haunts tho slumber
with an ever-present source of disquiet.
It is like iho sleep which tho mother
lakes while her sick child is under the
care of watchets in another room. An
easy stomach is just like an aching heart
in its clTeet upon thu nightly repose.
A healthy person who goes to bed on
a fuH stomach will always awake in the
morning with a better appetite for Ids
breakfast. If dinner is eaten in tlie
middle of tho day and a light supper is
served at six in tho afternoon, a heaity
lunch should be provided at ten in the
evening, or just before the hour of retir
ing. The rule should bu to eat at the
last moment beforo going to bed, what
ever the hour may be.
And this last meal should not be of
"light" viands, as this phrase is common
ly understood. The less a person eats
at any lime of cake or pie, or the count
less flummeries that go to make up a
fuuey tea-table thu better; but none of
these should be eaten at bed-time. Cold
chicken, cold roast beef, corned beef, or
wholesome meat of any kind, with well
baked biead and butter (sauce and picklo
will do no harm), will serve the substan
tial requisites for this collntion. Milk is
perhaps best of all where tho puroartiole
can bu obtained, "llordet's Condensed"
will supply it in the best shape; to our
taste, and if this is used, should bo mixed
with warm or hot water, instead of cold,
eaten beforo it cools. With bread and
fruit (baked apples will servo when ber
ries and teaches fail) this makes a whole
some evening meal.
All persons should be cautious when
they reform their habits in this respect.
A mouthful or two each night at first is
all that should be attempted, gradually
increasing the quantity until the lunch
eon becomes a pretty substantial meal.
If indigestion follows at any time, chew
ing tho meat of ono or two peach pits
(for the prussio acid in them) after eating,
is belter than Bending for a doctor.
