CONQUERING A HUSBAND.
Uncio l'hu has been lecturing tno
again 1" exclaimed Mrs. Charlea Dykes
as her husband catno homo to tea ono
evening. "I cannot, and will not,
stand it any longer," and tho young
wife dropped into a chair as tboimu
the last remaining portion of her
strength had left her.
"What was the subject of tho lec
ture, my dearl" inquired Mr. Dykes,
with a chcertul suiile, as though he
did not regard the situation as at all
"You know very well that Uncle
Phil has but one subject."
"And that is extravagance, or tho
reverse, economy, added fllr. JJvkcs
"Of course, that was tno subject ot
the lecture ; and you always take his
side of the question. Uncle Phil has
ten times as much influence with you
as I have. Whatever ho says is tight,
and whatever I say is wrong,1' retorted
Mrs. Dykes, rather warmly.
,itf . l.. t t.j
"li supper is iLuuy, x iuiiik wu iimi
better attend to that next ; and we
nhall havo tho wliolo evening to dis
cuss Uncle Phil's lecture. Tho Biib-

"Jiut Undo rhil will be hero to
take part in the discussion ; and that
is tust what 1 don t want. Uo over

thing, and I might as well hold; my
tonguo as speak, pouted tho wifo.
"Uncle will not bo here, juanan.
It is half past six, and he has to go to
a church meeting at seven."
'Very well, but I'm going to havo
something done this time. I won't
have Unclo Phil here any longer. If
he is to stay in this houso I shall not."
Mrs. Dykes was very young, aud
her angry pout, as sho sallied out of
meant. You must get htm out of tho
houso in somo way, Charles. Tako
your clerk to board and tell your Un-1
olo vou must havo tho room."
'If I tell him to go, I shall tell him
the reason why I do so."
"I am willing to bear all tho blame
I don't want anyone In tho houso to
como between mo and my husband,"
said tho lady, with a good deal ot

you and mo, Marian. That is absurd.'1

you a dozen times, to keep a horsoj

that you are doing more business than

and his wife looks patronizingly down
upon mo from her carryall whon sho
meets mo in tho street," added Mrs.
Djkes, with consideiablo bitterness in
I know nothing about Tinkham's
business ; nnd I do know something
about my own, ' replied Mr. Dykes.
lieloro tho supper dishes were re
moved, Charles Dykes had promised to
buy a horse and buggy. It appeared
to bo tno only way in which ho could
induce his wito to allow Unclo Phil to
remain in tho house. Doubtless ho
was weak to vield tho point against
his own judgment.
In tho cvenintr Squiro Graves mado
a friendly call. Mrs. Dykes was very
glad to seo him, for ho had a lady's
horse to sell. It was tust the animal
sho wanted, and as sho had conquered
her husband onco that day, she intend
ed to have tho horso trado settled that;
"(ilad to sco you, Squire ; anything

"It is a fact ; a keeper was put in
his store this afternoon and an attach

"That was all because ho kept two
horses when one was enough for him,"
luterposcd Mrs. Dykes.
Willi her the moral was between
two horses and ono.
Beforo tho Squiro had left ho had
sold his lady's horse. Mrs. Dykes was
perteotly happy and her heart began
to warm even towards poor Unclo
Phil. When tho retired shipmanj
came in from tho meeting there were.

all about it. it would bo a terrible

did, without tho ceremony of knocking.

"Uncle Phil, 1 am going to fail, for
I cannot pav a noto of four hundred

Charles bitterly, when ho saw that ho
could not conceal the facts from tho
"How much do you owo in all,
Charles !" asked Unclo Phil.
"About threo thousand dollars,"

"Yes sir ; but I can't raise threo
"I will give you a check for threo
thousand in the morning. I will bo

"I could not say anything to you,
Uncle ; and I cannot tako your money
after rvhat has happened."
'.'Nothing has happened yet, and
with the blessing ot Go!, nothing
Unelo Phil would not understand
"You may help me on one condi
tion," added Charles, after some dis
cussion. "And that is that you will
come back and live with us."
Marian joined in insisting upon this
condition, and the good man yielded.
Hu used no reproaches ; he would not
even say, "I told you so." Tho note
was paid the noxt day, and in tho
evening, Unclo Phil was domiciled in
his old apartment, quite as happy as
the young people.
Charles sold tho lady's horse, the
buggy, tho piano, and other extras,
and reduced all his expenses to a very
reasonable figure. Marian was happy
again, and did not belicvo that thero
was any too much salt about Uncle
Phil. She has given up the business
of conquering a husband. In fact,
both of them have como to believe
that neither should conquer the other.
After a while it camo out that Unclo
Phil was worth at least fifty thousand
dollars. Doubtless the Church aud
the mission will get some of it; but it
is piobablo that Charles Dykes will bo
remembered, though both ho aud his
wifo sincerely hope that the good man
will live until ho is a hundred.

Capo May Point is an outlying sub
urb of tho older city, and is situated at
tho extreme end of tho Jersey coast.
Tho littlo town is washed on both
sides, save one, by salt water. It
shares with neighboring resorts on tho
Atlautio coast tho softening climatic
Influence of tho Gulf Stream and ocean
breezes, and possesses in addition tho
geographical advantages of its moro
southerly situation and its almost
insular character. Under theso condi
tions the mid-water climato is temper
ate and genial, while the tonio influ
ence of the pure ocean breezes makes
exercise a constant delight.
Tho town is laid out iu streets and
avenues, affording pleasant walks and
pretty drives. Handsome hotels adorn,
tho beach, and tasteful cottages add
beauty to the landscape. The town is
well-organized, has an ample water
""pplvi works, and a thorough
system of sewerage. Two hotels, the
Capo Houso and Bellovue, aro now
open. Thny are conducted by exper
ienced managers, who know how to
entertain their guests, and tako prldo
in doing so. Tho houses aro mado
comfortablo by steam, and their sun
parlors aro tho delight of tho invalid.
As a sanitarium the Point is much
esteemed. Malaria is unknown. Tho
moderateness of the temperature and
its freedom from sudden changes aro
peculiarly beneficial to sufferers from
lung diseases ; and uuder tho tonio ef
fect of the sea air it is surprising how

Sho returned in season for dinner.
But Uncle Phil did not como down
to that meal. Tho lady rang tho bell
but with no better result. Uncle Phil
evidently did not hear tho bell, for he
never kept the tabid waiting for him.
Mrs. Dykes went up to his room to

and she went in. Tho shipmaster was
not there. llis trunk was not thero

Was it possible that Uncle Phil had

Tho assumption that marriage oilers
to a woman tho highest development is
open to question. The normal condi
tion of wifehood and motherhood, with
tho multifarious domestic duties in
volved, is a serious drawback to indus
trial, public or professional life. To
do any consecutive work, a single life
is almost necessary to a woman. Tho
married woman develops the special
qualities of wifehood aud motherhood
often, almost always, at tho cost of her
general development, family duties,
which aro a gain and impetus to tho
career of the man, crush and annihilate
the woman. Marriage demands from
her that overy thought, every talent,
overy project, should be subordinated
to its overwhelming claims. In it her
individuality is weakened and some
times absolutely effaced. Sho has not

of physical exercise and healthy re
creation whioh maintain tho elasticity
and vigor of her unmarried sister ; sho
canuot command for herself those

Whether it bo in tho direction ot

The Crimson Sunsets Explained.
Tho reasons given by a writer in the
April Atlantic for supposing that the
crimson sunsets observed last fall re
sulted from tho Javanese volcanic con
vulsions are that they were first observ
ed at Rodriguez, Mauretius and Sey
chelles, points about threo thousand
five hundred miles west, within thirty
six hours after tho event, aud later at
other points east and west at distances
and localities which appear to harmon
izo with tho timo required for the vol
canic dust to travel. Further, that in
1783, after an unusual eruption of tho
SWapta Jokul, it is recorded that tho
English skies put on a fiery aspect si
milar to that which set tho world to
wondering last autumn.
To tho intimations that tho atmos
pheric matter reflecting the afterglows
must havo been at a great height,
above tho cloud region as shown by
tho lateness and long coutinuauco of
tho light and that it must have taken
an enormous power to forco such mat
ter to such height, it is answered that
as volcanio masses of considerable size
avo been known to fall four or five
miles away from tho craterthat omitted
them, thero is littlo dilhculty in Btip
posing that thero was force enough m
tho Javanese convulsion to account
for tho necessary distance claim
It is still further held that Hitch vast
clouds of tine, miity matter lifted so
ami carried by tho prevailing currents
of air would account for the repetition
nnd long continuance of the light. Tho
tiner tho particles ot matter in tho
skies tho slower their fall. And ns it
is certain that tho volcanic vapor dust

mencing April 21 and ending May 4.
Preparations are being made to ensure
