"Aunt Hanniih, what do you call on honorable trade?"
said Bell, with thi - leait bit in the world of a wiser 'whir
. •.Any trade, Miss Ben; I call honorable that is in and
of itself right. The boot-black, who himself per

Iletiry Witherell had no trade—no calling, and much of
his time was idly !pent, or if not idly, in a way that was
of small pecuniary profit. But his fortune seensedample
and DO one dreamed that it could come to an end. At 25

She was a real beauty, just blushing into sweet seventeen,

fascinating as a parlor acquaintance.
”Old Mr. Miller was a shrewd man—his Wife wu a
shrewd woman. & they knew as well as any other shrewd
scheming. paplias and mammas, and it would be quite is
saving to get i fashionable, helpless daughter fl" their
hands. Henry Witherell became a visitor in th family,
and soon interested in the accomplished youag beauty;
and after a few months of llirtition.found himself deeplyin
love, for iheris was something very loveable in carte Mill
er, even if she could not work., He pitied her for her very
helplessness; and perhaps his love took its riot in his
pits, fat he and every one else kaolin that the father could

wife and children to ripple with the monster without

"That's because men are so much stronger and peon
det;and better able to endure care and trouble and sot
row," said Bell again with a sneer.
"Oh, I suppose so. I once heard a• woman say she
should have gone crazy if she had sense enough. Of
course, if we women were smart and wise and learned
aad -strong like men, hid power to reason : , instead of be
ing governed by instinct, as Mr. Walker says, we should
do just as Mr. Miller and thousands of other 111011 have
done, s go and get drunk to help us out of trouble, or smoke
a pipe, s or chew a half a pig tail of an evening to comfort
our tried spirits. But we have not sense enough for that."
••f)f coarse not,'Annt II ta . nali; instinct never taught
anybody to do those things, and the few women that fill
into those bad practices. I suoimse have •tulmi a hale of
the godlike from man—have learned to reason."
"Be that as it may, Mr. Miller drank himself into a
cemplete sot, and Mrs. Miller,, who seemed to

Wearied at length with tips lerribleexcitement within
