Mrs. Warren would call her husband the 'retainet
savage living. Then, spin, she would soften down
into grief, like that of the children, who monrhed
over him as over one dead. Between them and her
own sorrow, Betty hada hard time of it that day;—
However, she stood at her post bravely; with coax
ing and ecolding,,she managed the cbildren, suc
ceeded in quieting them, and before! night Mrs.
Warren was more calm. Betty had •i eh 'wonder
ful stories laid up in some little coroe of her brain ,
about the gold in California, how ma, y people she
had heard of who had corgi back as risk tit:Kraus,
that Mrs. Warren could not but listeno Then Bet
ty was so sure that Mr. Warren would mike his
fortune-..he was just the man for it—that the hp,
terjcs finally had to yield to the goldhn visions.—
Still, Mrs. Warren passed from thisststit into one
of settled melancholy, and continue& so for many
weeks. She took eo interest either i 4 the , house er
children. She gave money to Betthiand let her do
as she pleased with it. If they had anything to eat.
it was all very well; and if they had nothing, it was
just the same. She neither went out nor saw any
one at home. Her time was spent betweee the sofa
and bed. Habit tried to divert herself with any
thing, it was with very light reading, hot generally
that required more *fort than she desired to make:
The children learned to keep out of her way; she
could bear no noise, she said, and( they did not like
.to be with her. Still, she had been so long inerti
!ciont in her family, that she wis 'not much missed;
1 they were accustomed to do withopt her.
One day, Betty came in as usual for money. Mrs.
Warren went to her purse, and, to her utter amaze
ment, found that she had but one ten-dollar hill left.
She handed it to Betty, and, with the empty purse
in bur hand, she sunk down into a seat. For 'the
first time it gashed over her that there was a bottom
to her purseOtod who was to refill it? She bad
been se absorbed by her owa selfish sorrows, that
she really bad not before given the station a thought.
She was overwhelmed at this discovery. What
was now to be done? What should she dot Where
should she go? Reused by this stirring neces
sity, her mind began to work with vigor. Plan
succeeded plan, and thought thought, in wild con
fusion. She would go home to her mother—She
would not ger home to her mother. Tie chillnn

the carpet, and wept like a child. "qty children

now these tear* fall for them; the first tears which
had fallen for ley Co. but . beiself. They softened

I Juliette Harwood bad not been like Mn.e Warren.
She bad both energy and sareetness of character
when Henry Warren woed her. The' seed. of her
, future misery, however, had been earfully sown by
her overindulgent mother. If anything ailed Juli
ette, it was-a great . affair. She was noised, and.
tended, Ind babied, and never allowed to exert her
self at all. She was brought up to feel that every
thing moat yield to her poor feelings; so that when,
after her marriagei. her health really became some
what delkate, she had i no resorption to it. As
we have seen, she became selfish Ana indifferent.
AnOthei. day had now dawned, and the latent ener
gy of Juliette Harwood . must come forth to Juliette
Warren. That kind heart and strong arm, which
had so tong supported her, had been taken away.—
Now shr hallow ere let herreartf-sedereglimpser...--
. "I will take boarders." This was settled, and
with promptness went; ihmtddiately shoot it. - For
the first time
. since her husband's departure, she
went out' n a! week-day. She went' to her hus
ban's friend,, Charles Morton. Mr. Morton could
scarcely refrain from expressing his astonishment
when he heard her proposal. Sad misgivings he
had as to its success; nevertheless, he promised to
aid her. Indeed, he knew then of two young meg
who were looking for just such a place. As they.
were near by, he offered to go at once atuksee them.
Mrs. Warren sat down and awaited his return. The
young men accepted the offer, and wished-to come
the next day. ' This-was pressing matters haril.—
Mrs. Warren calculated tm some weeks, it least, fur
preparation, she knew she must get used to effort;
but here it was—she must take the boarders at their
time, or lose therm. She decided to take them..

her place to be supplied? She had been so lung in
the family, she knew everything they had, and where
it was -kept ." . Mrs.:Warren felt -her ig do ranee .
She would have to go to Betty to ask about every
,tn. Indeed, she did not know.what she had. It
deemed as if
,she could nut stir hand or foot without
Betty., Yet, if she would do, she must make up her
lad to it; fur here she was—her boarders were 'a
ged. More than anything else she dreaded broili
ng the subject to Betty. This was her first trial;
it was a severe one, and we : muat net blame her too
muck because, women-like, .be=nt down first and
had a good cry over it. But crying did nut help it
any, and time pressed., So she wound up her reso

"Mans?" said she.
"I want to see you akw minutes, Betty." ref
'tl am busy now; I'4l come by and by." "
"I cannot wait, Betty. I want to. see you now."
The unusual tone of decision in wilcb this was
uttemd, surprised Betty low instant obedience:
"What do you want of me?" said she, rather pet.
tishl3r, as she entered the parlor.
Mrs. Warren's heart sunk. "I want to talk with
you, Betty, e little about my plans. I've gei to do
somethind to get a living. My money is all gone.
I gave you the last dollar, this morning."
"The land! Well, I've been expecting it this

to-pt the wart out.
"Well, if _that an't pretty piece of work!" raid
Betty, her fee* turning all moaner of colors; "and
you think I am going to take care of you and tho
children, and a house full of boarddp into the bar
gain, do you' I tell you, :Wm Warren, I won't
slave myself to death so, for nobody!"
"I did not think you would." said Mrs. Warren,
slowly aad sadly. "I had abont made up my mind
that you would irrave_Ame, and I should have to get

Mrs. Wean k began to tie on her bonnet.
"Well, if this sn't pretty times!" slid Betty, her
faci becoming redder and redder, while her voice
grew husky. "Do you think, .Visa Warren, that I

Bo Betty remained, and took bold of 'bet new lk-

found out there was such a thing as keeping
illness confined within its proper sphere—that is to
the body, while the, mind might vire.. She found
out that throbbing temple's and disordered nerves
could be' made to obey as well as rule. At those
times when, if left to the dictates of her own poor
feeling, she, would scarcely have dragged one foot
after another, she found out that ihe could step strew_

gained made her stronger. Then, in addition tothis
moral renovation, her health really improved. She
foead nut there was no doctor for her like Dr. "Here
to." Her cheeks became ruddy anditer eyes bright,
tindirer mind awoke to cheerfulness and activity, in
the pleasanueociety which was now *boot her. Ju
liette Warren, in a few months, was very ulster
changed, as all would have seen, could they have
gene with Betty to her chamber, when for the first
time since the day the boarders came, she carried
up a meal to her, and found her en the bed with' her

*Well, now,. if I shall net give it all up! - Whet
do you think Mr. Warren would say, to see:-you
now? 1'!l bet he wouldn't believe hi's own eyeti."
Mrs. Warren made no reply; but this remark of
Betty's went like en arrow to her heart. In an in
stant a gleam of light shot - across the past. 4. if
by a sudden revelation, she saw at a glence all its
- • - . _ Dui, wiruhiLawaeart,..wort ,roar
shelled before Seri through alt of which she; had
been the sick, complaining, inefficient wife and moth;
er. She was almost overwhelmed; she had never
-seen it so before, Scene after scene crowded upon
her mind, in which she had taxed her husband's pa
tience to the utmost. And what had she given him
in g .return for all his kindness? Nothing. His home
had been uncomfortable, and his money bad been
wasted. Now she could see plainly enough , why
he left her. Now she felt hot} deeply she bad
wronged him. She longed to th ow herself at his
feet, and implore his forgivenes . All her earl y
love for him relived in its intent, ty. "0, my God!"
she exclaimed in a burst of grief, "spare him, 0,
spare him to return, that I may tinake some amends'
for the injury I have done him, and that he : may
know me penitente. - and love!"
•or many days after thus, Mrs. Warren carried
'-,. • - . 1 !......* , --,,1t remsirettx nod' vino% Ifftin_for
her to make exertion, in this state of feeling; but it
must be done. Even sorrow could not be indulged
in selfishly. " . ,
She tonight some comfort by wilting to her hus
band, stealing time for this from her sleep: These
letters, by the way, never reached him; neither did
Phis reach her.
At this time, also, she formed another Oen, which
was a comfort to her. She determi;:ed to Lay by
every cent which she could possibly spare from her
larnigs, hopieg to collect at least a small at m' to
wards assisting her hustraid Id setting up in busi
ness; should he come home as poor is he vr'ent.—
This gave her a- new motive for exertion.. She
gave her whole mindto her bossiness. Her Moire wee
popular; her table was filled to oserllowing; . ber af•
fairs were well managed. She was,, as she desert-.
ed to be—fur there were nut ten ladies in the city,
who made more effurt—she was saccessfuti.; Her
children were pot out to the best schools. They
improved rapidly id mind and manners. Henry was
a great help to her; he was a manly little fellow,
with his lather's kind heart. . •
B4tty continued to role in the kitchen, though a
a stout girl was brought to serve under her. The
boarders, a ways knew Bejty's c caking—no one eliie
made things taste quite so *ell; so she kept mi . the
way, -doing her ful share of the fretting and scold- I
