The old man sat by the chimney side,
His face was wrinkled and Wan;
And he leaned both hands on his atont oak
As if all his work was done.
His coat was of good old fashioned grey,
The pockets were flee@ and wide,
Where his "specs" and his steel tobacco box
Lie snugly side by side.
The old man liked to stir the fire,
So near him the tongs were kept ;
Sometimes ho mused as he gazed at the coals,
Sometimes he sat and slept.
What saw he in the embers there?
Ah 1 pictures of other years ;
And now and then they wakened smiles,
But as often started tears.
His good wife sat on the other side;
In a high-backed flag seat chair ;
I see 'Death the pile of her muslin cap
The sheen of her silvery hair.
There's a happy look on her aged face,
As she busily knits for him
And Nellie takes up the stitches dropped,
For Grandmother's eyes are dim.
Their children came and read the news,
To pass the time each day ;
How It stirs the blood in the old man's heart
To hear of the world away
'T Is a homely twene—l told you tai,
But pleasant it is to view,
At least I thought it so myself,
And sketched it down for you.
Be kind unto the old, my friend,
They're worn with this world's strife,
Though bravely once perchance they fought
The stern, fierce battle of life.
They taught our youthful feet to climb
Upward's life's rugged steep ;
Then let us gently lead them down
To where the weary sleep.
My husband came tenderly to my side:
"Are you going out this evening, love?"
"Of course I am!"
I looked down complseently at my dress
of pink crape, dew-dropped over with crys
tal, and the trails of pink azalans that
caught up its folds here and there. A
diamond bracelet encircled one round white
arm, and a little cross blazed fitfully at
my throat. I had never looked Issttesi
and I felt a sort of girlish pride as my eye
met the fairy reflection in the mirror.
"Come, Gerald, make haste!—why, yon
haven't begun to dress yeti . "
Where were my wifely instincts that I
did not see the haggard, drawn look in his
features— , the fevered light in his eyes?
"I can't go to night, Madeline—l am
not well enough."
"You are never 'well enough' to oblige
me, Gerald. I am tired of being put off
with such excuses."
He made no answer but dropped his
head in his hands on the table before him.
“0, come, Gerald,” I urged, petulantly,
"it is awkward fbr me to go alone always.
He shook his head listlessly.
"I thought perhaps you would be will
ing to remain at home withme, Madeline. "
"Kea are so selilab?” I said plaintively,
"and lam all dressed. Claudia took half
an hour for my hair. I dare say you'll
be a great deal quieter without me, that is,
if you are determined not to go. "
No answer again.
"Well, if you choose to be sullen, I can't
help it," I said lightly, as I turned and
went out of the roOta, adjusting in my
silver boquet holder the tube roses and
heliotropes seeming to distill incense at
every motion.

SS For I felt uow that hie* was the place
for me;
'Hurried by some umeevuttgble Impulse,
I sprang out the moment the carriage
wheels touched the curbstone, and rushed
up to my husband's room. The door
was locked, but I could see a light shining
faintly under . the threshold. I knocked
wildly and persistently.
"Gerald! Geraid! for Ileaven's sake
let me int"
Something fell on the marble hearth
stone within, making a metallic clink, and
my husband opened the door a little way.
I had never seen him look so pale before,
or so rigid or determined.
"Who arc you?" he demanded wildly.
" Why cannot you leave me in peace?"
"It's I, Gerald—your Madeline—your
own little wife."
And I caught from his hand the pistol
he was striving to conceal in his breast—
its mate lay on the marble hearth, under
the mantle—and flung it out of the win
" Gerald! you would have left me?".
"I would have escaped!" he cried, still
half delirious to all appearances. " Debt
—disgrace—misery—her reproaches! I
would have escaped them alll"
His head fell, like that of a weary child,
on mripiosider. I daew him gently to a
sofa, and soothed him with a thousand
murmured words, a thousand mute cares
ses! For had it not all been my fault?
And through all the long weeks of fear
that followed, I nursed him with unwaver
ing care and devotion. I had but one
thought—one desire—to redeem myself
in his estimation, to prove to him that I
was something more and higher than the

Well, the March winds had howled
themselves away into their mountain fast
nesses, the brilliant April rain drops were
dried on bough and spray—and now the
apple blossoms were tootling their fragrant
billows of pinky bloom in the deep, blue
air of latter May. Where were we now?
It was a picturesque little cottage just
out of the city, tarnished very much like
a magnificent baby house. Gerald sat in
a cushioned easy chair on the piazza, just
where he could glance through the open
window at me, working a batch of biscuits
with my sleeves rolled up above my el
bows, and the " gold thread" hair neatly
confined in a silken net.
" Wpat an industrious fairy it is!"
he said; smiling sadly.
" Well, you see I like it! It's a great

make so notable a housekeeper!"
I laughed gleefully—l had all a child's
delight in being praised.
" Are you not going to Mika Delancey's
croquet party?" he pursued.
"No—what do I care for croquet par
ties? I'm going to finish your shirts, and
you'll read aloud to me!"
" Madeline, I want you to answer me
one question."
"What is it?"
I had safely deposited my pan of biscuits
in the oven by this time, and was dusting
the dour off my hands.

" That's right, little red breast," said
my husband, half jokingly, " talk her

the system 4341, against it 328.
WESTMORELAND county rejoices in
probably the oldest married couple in the
State—Patrick Murphy and wife, aged
respectively 110 and 80 years.
AT a special election held for Council
man in the Bth Ward of Harrisburg last
week, Patrick Ryan, Republican, was
elected by five majority. In October the

cratic majority.
THE next statement of the public debt
is expected to show a reduction of about
810,000,000. The heavy payments for
interest have been completed, and the re
ceipts of the pass month have exceeded the
expenditures by the amount specified.
WENDELL PHILLIPS in a recent lecture
said he was far from despairing because
Grant had not called to Ins Cabinet " the
hneat minds of the country. ,, He said we
ave had enough of the great men there,
and thanked (od we had got rid of the
whole of them.
THERE is much truth in the following
recent "chunk of wisdom , ' from Punch,
who says: "If you are a wise man you
will treat the world as the moon treats it.
Show it only one side of yourself, seldom
show yourself too much at a time, and let
what you show be calm, cool and polish
ed. But look at every side of the world."
AT a recent meeting of the Forest
County Republican Committee, J. G. Dale,
James Green and A. 11. Steele were ap
pointed Senatorial and Representative
Conferees to meet similar Conferees from
the other counties to elect delegates to
the next State Convention, instructed to
support John W. Geary for Governor.
THE New York anninercial makes the
startling statement that "not one-half the
income tax of the country is paid!" and
as an example and illustration, it says
that it knows of one house in New York
city, where twenty-one gentlemen board,
and only one has ever made an income re
turn, or paid an income tax, or ever been
asked so to do.
GEN. GRANT'S noble declaration in
favor of honestly paying the national debt
according to the letter and spirit of the
contract, is worthy of the great soldier
who saved the country from destruction.
Repudiators of all grades are classed with
the rebels and traitors who sought to de
stroy the national life, and will receive no
countenance from this administration.
IT is safe now to predict that we shall
hear no more of the Ku-Klux in the South.
For more than a month past, these assas
sins have been gradually withdrawing from.
the theatre of their bloody deeds. Hence
forth there will be no further Ku-Klux
murders in the South, because those assas
sins no longer have a friend at court. Tke
work of blood has ended—Grant will give
peace to all the country.
THE various religious denominations of
the United States,
and especially the mem
bers of the powe rful Methodist Episcopal
Church, have great faith in General Gijiat
aad in the prosperity of the Gospel under
his admisistration. The General's father
is a Methodist, his mother is a Methodist,
his wife is a Methodist, and through these
channels the General himself is well sea
soned with wholesome religious convic
THE Scranton Register, the Democratic
paper in a banner Democratic county, has
suspended. We tender the proprietors,
together with those of all Democratic
journals, our sympathies. Democratic
voters are not newspaper subscribers, or
perhaps we may put it thus : Newspaper
subscribers do not long remain Democratic
voters. When a man becomes able to read
and write and think a little, he generally
leaves the Jack Cade party.
Tnz Chicago Tribune assigns good rea-.
sons for arguing that the price of wheat
will be much lower during the coming
year. It concludes its article by saying :
' The best thing that holders can do is to
prepare to look their losses In the face as
fully as may be, and decide to 'let go,
chance of selling be denied in tot°.
The supply is too abundant to admit of a
scarcity, and sellers to the great world of
consumers are too numerous to admit of
thy holders being able to dictate in this
matter of prices.
Oun exchanges are circulating a story
telling bow a big "spotted'? tiger eats lit
, tie girls near New Orleans, leaving only
their shoes and curls to console their friends.
We don't doubt the fact that there is
tiger, perhaps several of them, in New
deans and vicinity, but their ravages
are generally confined to fast young men,
shirks and - thlr dbolish employers. Some
times the tiger swallows a handsome store
building at a single bite, with all its con
tents, and then washes the dry-goods or
hardware down with a good sized wine
shop. The same species of tiger has been
"spotted" in several other cities at dillbr
ent times.
