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 desperate. "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- iect will keep for a while." "Jiut Undo rhil will be hero to take part in the discussion ; and that is tust what 1 don t want. Uo over shadows mo entirely when he saya any 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 spirit. "Unclo i'hil does nol come between you and mo, Marian. That is absurd.'1 I havo asked you, and even begged you a dozen times, to keep a horsoj Unclo Phil takes sidos with you against mo." "Hut ho never said horso to mo in his lifo. I can't afford to keep a horse." 'Yes, you can, Charles. They say that you are doing more business than Tinkham, and ho keeps two horses s 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 her tone. 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; evening. "(ilad to sco you, Squire ; anything newt" tho young merchant becran, doing the usual common-places T x here is news, but 1 suppose you havo heard it," replied tho visitor. "I haven t heard anything i what is it!" "Haven't you heard that Tinkham has been attached." "Linkhaml is it possible ?' ex claimed Mr. Dykes, glancing at his wife. "It is a fact ; a keeper was put in his store this afternoon and an attach ment put on his horses and carriages "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. a dozen things sho wanted to do for his comfort. Tho lady had beaten her husband aud his uncle, and sho was satisfied. Beforo breakfast next morning Graves' man led tho horse over and put him iu tho littlo stable. Ono of tho clerks was to tako care of him. Uncle Phil saw the purchase but ho, said nothing unpleasant. He looked the animal over, said ho was sound aud worth tho hundred dollars to bo paid lor hira in goods from the store, t.UIJ' VMt, tlO DUU DH1UVU V.

Tho young merchant worried. Ho had yielded to ono ox travaganco and thero was a long train behind it. His noxt balanco sheet showed that ho was three thousand dollars in debt, and liia stock was not worth half that sum. He saw that ho must fail. After supper, ono evening, ho told his wife all about it. it would bo a terrible humiliation, to fall as Tinkham had ; and poor Marian wept as though her heart would break. In tho midst of tho scene Unolo Phil walked into tho room, as ho always did, without tho ceremony of knocking. lio ottcn called. "Uncle Phil, 1 am going to fail, for I cannot pav a noto of four hundred dollars that falls due to-morrow," said Charles bitterly, when ho saw that ho could not conceal the facts from tho good man. "How much do you owo in all, Charles !" asked Unclo Phil. "About threo thousand dollars," groaned Charles. "Wnl threo thousand put you on your leet, solid t ' "Yes sir ; but I can't raise threo hundred." "I will give you a check for threo thousand in the morning. I will bo at the storo at eight a clock. I no ticed that you havo looked worried lately j but you said nothing to me." "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 shall happen." Unelo Phil would not understand him. "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.

He did not seem like a man who could be very disagreeable' if ho tried, Uo had a deacomsh look about his face, that of serious though not austere man. Certainly no ono would have taken him for a shipmaster, but he had spent most of his lifo at sea or in for eign ports. Ho used to read tho Biblo to his crew every Sunday, and never allow any swearing or other bad lan guago in his presence on board the ship.

BLOOMSBURG PLANING MILL next town 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 call him. Tho door was wide opqn and she went in. Tho shipmaster was not there. llis trunk was not thero tho picture of tho Scabird in which he, had sailed many a voyage, had been taken from the wall. Was it possible that Uncle Phil had gone without even saying good-by to them ? Thero was a letter on tho ta ble addressed to "Mr. and Mrs. Charles Dykes,'' With the letter in her hand she hastened down to the dining-room. lo say that she was astonished and chagrined would not half express her iceling.

Tho closing of Tinkham a store brought moro business to tho young merchant lor a time, though tho bank 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 tho time oven to continuo those habits of physical exercise and healthy re creation whioh maintain tho elasticity and vigor of her unmarried sister ; sho canuot command for herself those conditions of lifo which condtico to health. On the other hand, the number of unmarried women increases voluntar ily, and not of necessity. The mental lifo of these fortunates and superior creatures is free and untrammelled. The single woman's taetes aro various and refined her opportunities for cul tivating them practically unlimited. Whether it bo in tho direction ot society, or art, or travel, or philanth ropy, or public duty, or a combination of many of these, there is nothing to hinder her from following her own will no restrictions but those of her own conscicnco and right principle. From her stronghold of happiness and treedom sho can help tho weak and protect tho poor. She is fitted to fill a place which has always stood empty in tho history of tho world that of a loving and tender woman, armed with ofllcial power to redress tho wrongs of women and children, whoso nature and necessities are known only to her, Whilo losing none of the fun and gaie ty of lifo, she is called by religious cou. ..;! . , r . t 1 I 1 victiuu to sianu iaco to luce and iiiinu to hand with Buffering.

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 cd. 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 two residences represent another 81.000,000 nnd his yacht $300,000. Ilia wealth, as nearly as ho can figure it, is 858,795,413, and his income $4, 010,011. Thus his fortune earns bim 812,888.88 every day and $8.95 eaoh minute. A Bilk lair. A silk fair, under tho auspices of the Women's Silk Culture Association, will bo held in Horticultural Hall, com mencing April 21 and ending May 4. Preparations are being made to ensure a good collection of everything apper taining to tho breeding of silk worms, the reeling and weaving of the silk, and samples of dresses made out of silk grown in this country. Nothing will be on exhibition that is not Amer ican. Invitations havo been issued to manufacturers to Bend for exhibition machinery used in every stago of silk making. Ono interesting exhibit at the exhibition will bo two national flags, to be presented to tho Senate and Houso at Washington, made from silk grown iu this country last Summer and manufactured in Philadelphia. Tho managers Bay that the fair held in Philadelphia in January, 1882, awoke great interest iu the silk indus tries and gavo them tho impulso that was needed. Much, however, has still to bo dono to ovcrcomo prejudice aud induce merchants to deal in the Ameri can article. That tho silk produced in this country is equal to that of Europe, they claim, will bo amply demonstra ted nt tho fair iu addition to tho gratifying showing of tho increased output and improved appliances of America.

Everywhere, oxcept in Turkey, tho dog is regarded as tho faithful friend ot man. l Here, and in tact in every oouiitry where Islamism prevail, ho is a complete outcast, and everything ho touoheB becomes impure. Tho word dog in tho mouth of a follower of Ma homet Btguiues all that in wretched and vile, ami is applied as a term of the utmost contempt. On the contrary, tho cat, tho most ungrateful and least susceptible of attachment of all tho do- mestio animals, :s tho daily companion two-thirds of that quantity for ten years, and threo ounces a day for threo years of childhood, and tho total ani mal food devoured by a singlo person will be found to equal in bulk 350 dressed Bheop.
