MISS MIDFERN'S WEDDING.
nv ih'.i.kk 10UUK3T oit,vvi:8.
"Father said that railroad would
liring no jrood to lis,'' said Martha Mid
fern, "and now h'u words have como
There had been a railroad accident
on tho "15lnuk Hock and Ueensovoort
Line," Thu engineer had been killed
lit his post, tho tclc9;oed train had
caught lire, one ierson was taken up
for (lead, and all tlio rest was moro or
less bruibed, wounded and terrified j
nnd by way of sequel to thu rest, Miss
Midftrn'u bain was burned to tho
ground, willi all tho nowly-garnered
storo of hay, and tho now patent reap
er, whiuh bad cost such a sum of mon
ey. The furin house itself had narrow
ly escaped t tho cattlo being at pasture
wcro foi Innately unhurt.
Miss Mid fern never had been a nei
vous woman, but sho was a little palu
r.s she stood on tho front porch, look
ing nt the wrecking tiain, whoso hands
wero hard nt work.
"How's the youug man V said Mrs.
Dulcimer, who lived on tho nearest
"He's belter," said Miss Midfern.
Mrs. Dulcimer sighed. Even in a
railway accident luck seemed to go on
tho opposite side of tho boundry fence,
which separated tho two estatesof Dul
cimer and Midfern. Why, sho nked
herself, could not tho pleasant-looking
young man with tlio diamond studs
have been .lung into tho arms of her
four unmarried daucliters instead of
falling to tho lot of Martha Midfern ?
"Going to recover t" said Mrs. Dul
cimer. "That's what Dr. Paloy hopes."
"If you want any help in nursing
him feebly began Mrs. Dulcimer.
"Much obliged. I'm sure,'' piomptly
answered Miss Midteru; "but I don't
require any assistance."
Mis. Dulcimer mado no reply, but
sho glanced obliquely at Miss Midfern
and thought thero was no danger of
any man's losing his heart to that wry
faced old maid.
"If it had been my Caroline Augus
ta, now. or Hannah 1" thought Sirs.
Dulcimer, with a thrill of maternal
Hut thero is no accounting for tho
freaks of Cupid. Harry Suvier was
young and grateful. Doctor Paley
told him truthfully, that Martha Mid
fern's careful nursing hail saved his
life. Aud eno autumn ovening, in a
burst of gratitude, ho laid that life at
tho middle-aged woman's feet.
"Do you really mean it 1" said Mar
tha, who had never had a bona-lido of
fer of .marriage in her life.
And she blushed red and whito liko
"Is it likclv that 1 should lest on
such a subject V said Harry, earnest-
"Jiut I am older than you.
"In years, perhaps yes. But what
difference does that make t"
So Miss Martha Midfern became en
gaged to tho handeomo young Geor
gian whom lato hail United to her
"I suppose people will laugh al me,"
sho thought. "Hut thero why should
1 caret Ho loves me and I lovo him,
and that is enough. Hut I guess we'd
better keep tho secret to ourselves just
As tho beautiful October woods
blazed forth in their mellow autumn
tints Mr. Sovier began to stroll out a
little way at a limo to sit on mossy
boulders and dream beside merry little
brooks. And ouo day Hannah Dulci
mer came dancing homo from a search
after nuts in tho woods.
"Ivo seen him, mother," said she
"tho Captivo Knight 1 Tho old witch
lias let him out of tho tower for awhile.
And bo's as handsome as a picture !
And, oh. mother, ho is so nice 1 And
he is coming hero this afternoon to see
tlio viow from Apple-Tree Knoll. May

"What will Martha Midfern say ?"
uttered Mis. Dulcimer
"As if that signified 1" gayly retort
ed Hannah, who was tho youngest and
prettiest ot all tho Dulcimer girls. Ho
isn't her's, is ho 1"
Ami then she ran up stairs to brush
nut her auburn cuiN, which wero blown
into silky confusion by llio wind, nnd
to put into water the cluster of blue
asters which Mr. Sevier had given
Nobody was to blame in theso un
forlunato cases nobody everis to blame.
Hut tho mischief was all done before
poor Hannah Dulcimer found out that
Harry Sevier was thu captive of Martha
Mldferu's bow and spear. And Harry
liiinselt awakened at last to a con
sciousness of his life's mistake.
He was a Georgian gentleman, how-
over, and honor was dearer to him oven
than love, so ho made no sign.
Hannah, however, was less reticent
and self-contained ; and when Martha
Midfcin came over to consult Sarah
Alice Dulcimer, who was a milliner by
trade, as to ibo wedding bonnet, Han
nah caino into tho room with red eyes
and burning chocks.
"Oh, Maltha I Martha 1" sho sobbed.
"I know it isn't maidenly, but I can't
help it. I lovo him, and he loves me.
Oh, Martha, be magnanimous aud
leavo him to mo I"
"Hannah, bold your tongue I" cried
Sarah Alice, greatly ecmdalized.
"1 can't help It 1 ' wailed Hannah,
wiinging her hands nnd rocking to and
fro like one in mortal pain. "I lovo
him, nnd ho loves me, and hu is engag
ed to you, Martha Midfern 1 Oh, what
is to bo done V
Murtha turned pale. Moro than
onco somo inkling of this unfortunate
complication hail crossed her mind, but
shu had dismissed it ns too utterly mi-
"Ho hns never nskod for bis froo
dnm," sho said lioar.elv.
"Hecauso ho is too good too noble!"
hysterically cried Hannah. "IIo would
dio soonei thnn forfeit his word. Hut
von you. Martini -you will not let
him saerifici his life. Oh, Martha,
think how terriblo it would bo 1"
"Hannah, I'm astonished at you 1"
said Sarah Alice. "Mother, do got her
out oi tnu room.
And poor llaunuh was taken, sob'
bing, from tlio piesence of llio bride
Marlha Midfern ordoredtlio weddinc
bonnet white shirred silk, with a
wreath of whilo roso buds, crossed
over with silvery green and whito satin
"It may look n little youthful," she
said, "but nftcr nil, ono is not married
"No, to bo sure,' said Sarah Alice,
with a sinking heart, for, naturally
enough, all tho sympathies of the Dul
cimer family wcro on the side of pret
ty Hannah, nnd thero had been a sort
of faint hope that Miss Midfern might
possibly relent in favor of her young
Her thoughts wcro anything but
pleasant, however, as shu went home.
Harry Sevier was mady on tho porch,
but sho did not join him, as would
have seemed most lilting, but merely
slipped In at tho back way.
It seemed to her that ho had never
looked so young before, nud as sho
glanced at tho cherry-wood mirror in
tho sitting room, her own faco appear
ed absolutely haggard and old. ,
"Pshaw P said she. "How would I
look in a while silk hat trimmed with
whito roso buds V
Marlha Midfern was aheroina in her
way. A minute's serious thought set
tled tlio question. It was a bitter pill
to swallow, but it was her duty. Sho
put the bright vision of lierlifo valiant
ly away from her and went out to Mr.

To the readers of the Coi.i'miuan:
vVhy docs the government spend so
much money and risk so many lives in
trying to capture tho counterfeiter.
"Suppose ho docs counterfeit gov
ernment bonds and notes, surely the
government is rich enough to stand

But, tbo individual citizen could ill
afford to lia put to continual financial
loss if such desperadoes wero left go

It is only the valuablo thing that is
counterfeitfdi it is only in the light of
purity and virtue tli.it impurity and
vico can bo known. No ono in theso
days would counterfeit a Cohfederato
bond or note.
People who commit fraud always do
it by simiiallng tho highest irtuc; by
preying on the cleanest reputation, by
employing the fair name of virtue with
which to givo respectability to vice.
Let us explain: Seven or right years
ago, so wo havo been informed many
t'ums in public prints, a New York
stato gentleman was pronounced, as
many millions havo been pronounced
before, incurably sick of an extreme
disorder. Hy suggestions which ho be
lieved wero providential, ho was led
to tho use of a preparation which had
been for several years employed by a
select few physicians in New York city
ami one or two other piomiucnt places
The result was that ho was cured, he
whom doctors without number and of
conceded ability said was incurable.
Having secured possession of I lie for
mula, absolutely and irrevocably, he
determined to devote a portion of his
accummnlated wealth to tho manufac
ture and salo of this remedy for tho
benefit of tlio many who suffer as ho
suffered, in apparent hopelessness). In
less than threo years, so tremendous
camo the demand for this remedy and
so exalted tbo reputation, that ho was
obliged for his purposo to erect a lab
oratory and warehouse containing four
ami a quarter acres of llooring and
filled with tho most approved chemical
and manufacturing devices. Probably
there never was aremedy that has won
such a meritorious name, such extraor
dinary sales and has accomplished so
much good for the race.
Unprincipled parties who flourish
only upon tho ruins of others, saw
in this reputation and salo an opportu
nity to reap a golden harvest, (not le
gitimately, not honorably) for which
purposo they have made imitations and
substitutions of it in every ecotion of
the country, and many druggifti, who
can mako a larger profit on theso imi
tation goods, often compromise their
honor by forcing a salo upon tho un
Yes, undoubtedly the manufacturers
could well afford to ignore such in
stances of fraud so far as tho effect
upon themselves is concerned, for their
remedies have a constant and unremit
ting Bale, but they feel it to bo their
duty to xearn the publie against such
imitations and substitutions, non-secret
and otherwise. Tho individual who
buys them and tho people who coun
tenances their salo alone suffer in
mind, body and cstato therefor.
Tho author of somo of theso fraud
ulent practices have been prosecuted
and sent to prison for their crimes, but
tliero is another ciass who claim to
know the formula of this iciupdy and
ono Sunday school journal, wo aro told,
has prostituied its high and holy call
ing so far as to advertiso that for
twenty five cents it will send all new
subscribers a transcript of tho Warner
formula ! This formula, by tho way,
must bo a wouderfully kaleidoscopic
affair, for there is hardly a month
parses when somo papei- is not issued
which pretends to givo tho only cor
rect formula 1
Tho manufacturers inform us that
they would bo perfectly willing that
tlio publio should know" what the true
formula of Warners safe cure is. fncne

this remedy bo recognized that tho ele
ments Uiat compose it were simnlo but
ho attributed the secret of its power to
tho method of iu compounding, and
this method no ono knows except the
manuiaciurcrsnnii no ono can acquire it.
Our advico to our readers, therefore.
cannot bo too strongly emphasized.
As you would prefer virtue to vice,
gold to dross, physical happiness to
physical misery, shun tho imitatator
aud ruliiso thereby to lend your aid
financially to thoso who seek to get, by
trading upon another's reputation and
honesty, a salo for wares and goods
which on their meiits aro fit only to bo
rejected .as tho veriest refuse You can
neither nlford to patronize such peo

HOW Till. OA MB IS l'MYKI) IMI'OIITANCE
As ii variation, or addition, to tho
regular game, tlio innovation known as
progroosivo euchre possesses somo
claims to merit. Tho ordinary rules of
euchre govern the gane, with somo ob
vious exceptions, and n progressive
eiichto parly should consist of three
tables, of four persons. Littlo strips
of card board should bo prepared be
forehand, witli a loop of nbbon by
which they may bo attached to tho
(Ire's or coat of thu player. Ono of
lliesa is drawn by each person. Aro is
wiittcn on four cards, king on four
nnd queen on tho remaining four.
Those who draw tho aco slip tako tho
aco table, which is tlia highest in rank;
those witli tho king slips tako thu sec
ond nnd tho queens the third table,
which is tnu lowest in rank. Onu
amusing part of this gamo is tiial four
gentlemen may draw tho slips for llio
samo table, or four ladies, in which
case they aro doomed to play together,
for thu laws of progressive euchro aro
liko thoso of "the Medos and Peisians,
which alter not."
Tho players scaled at their respect
ive tables, thu game begins in earnest,
nud as soon as the nuo tablo has mado
five points a littlo bell at this tablo
is rung, which moans that tho other
tables is to stop playing, oven if they
aro nt tho very crisis of a game. This
is tantalizing sometimes, and tbo littlo
bell comes to be regarded as a cruel
fate. On tho other hand, tho nee tablo
is sometimes slow in its playing, which
gives tho other tables to go on making
points ad infinitum. On tho ringing of
tlio bell, lliojo who havo won tho gamo
at tho ao-j tablo aro decorated, not with
tho Cross of tlio Legion of Honor, or
even tho Victoria Cross, but with a
small wafer, which is attached to tho
strip of cardboard. This couplo re
tain their soits, whilo tho two defeated
ones move down to tho kiug table, and
tho successful players at thu king tablo
move up to the aco tablo. Thu same
chango is made in tho queen table, con
sequently a continual chango of part
ners is going on at all llio tables.which,
witli tho decoration of tho successful
players, occasions no small amount of
Prizes aro given at tlio close of tho
game. Hero the ingenuity and fun of
tho hostess find nmplo scope. Ono
prize is given to tho best player, tlio
ono whoso strip of cardboard bears
most wafers. They should bo some
thing pretty, oven if very simplo and
inexpensive. The second prize is called
consolation and is given to tho least
Hiiccosssful player. This gift may be
something grotesque and have some
humorous verses attached, which will
add much to tho gayety of tho even
ing. When refreshments aro to bo
served, it is generally arranged at what
time tlio aco tablo shall stop playing.
A cessation of hostilites affords timo
for passing around somo slight refresh
ment. An elaborate supper seems out
of placo on such an occasion, as tho
players are usually anxious to return to
their game and decide their fates for
If etiquette lie important in tho or
dinary affairs of life, how much moro
so is it in tlio card room and at tho
whist table, says a writer on tho game.
Etiquette is often but a form. At
whist, etiquetto is but a substance. If
a man will not send his card or call at
another's house, he may hope to bo for
given! but at whist, tho player who
does not attend to tho etiquetto pre
scribed by good tnsto and tho usages
of tho table, this offender will bo prop
erly shunned. Etiquetto in whist
phraseology, is a term synonymous
witli honest. In-atteution to tho eti
quette of tlio gamu causes moro bicker
ings and hcartichPR than tho worst
player out of Hedlnm, and goodness
knows tho bad players aro nearly stilllc
ient to drive ordinary penpio mad. Hut
because men and women aro bad play
trs surely thpro is no occasion to add to
their oilier offonces tho total disregard
of etiquette. Somo people nro so
thick-skinned that nothing short of a
penalty will over prevent thoir break
ing x rule. Theso uiop a card faco up
ward and snatch it up again and think
thoy havo dono something clever in
stead of having committed a heinous
ottence; or they lead nut of turn, nnd
when ultimately they got they send out
thu exposed card likp a llish of light- '
nig, ami again mink th-y l avo dono

It is not. etiquette to got into a nas-
sion and throw down the cards. It is
not etiquette for tho voiiiil' whist ulav-
er to derido or bo angry with his scn-
mi-, i', in iii'.iiiug, you exprso an aco
and your adveisiries elect to let tho
deal stand, it is not etiquetto to mis
deal. In dealing it is not etiquetto to
count tlio cards on the table or in tlio
hand and then doolaro you havo not
done so to avoid a misdeal. It is not
etiquetto to bet with an outsider witli
out first offe'ing tho chanco to your
adversaries. Tho breach of this" law
causes moro anger than any other. It
is not etiquetto to wrangle with your
opponent on any disputed point when
tiiuro is a iiysi.inner to whom you can
refer. Such bystander having decided,
although you think him wrong, it is
not etiqiu tto to further arguo tbo point,

grace. Having revoked ouco it js not
etiquette to revoke again to cover your
blunder; nor is it etiquetto to mako any
exclamation calling your adversaries'
luit'iiuuii io mo met mat you have re
voked. Tho excitable and talkalivo
players may bear this iu mind, and thoy
will do well to remember that at wliist
nothing should bo said during the play
of the hand.
