VlrgiUus, Bishop of Salsburg in the eighth
century, condemned the erroneous doctrine
- lield by some that c have antipodes. It wag,
no doubt, true that men in the middle ages had
not their antipodes, but it is certainly other
wise now. "Where our fathers' beads were,
there now are our feet. Everything is the re
verse in this generation of what it -was in the
lost. Medicine condemns those things which
-M-dictne did enjoin, and enjoins those things
which were forbidden. What onr parents
revered that we trim into burlesque, and what
they cast aside as worthless that we collect and
treasure. Maxims that moulded -the conduct
in the last generation are trampled under foot
in this, and principles thought immutable are
broken by the succeeding age, as royal seals are
broken on the death of the sovereign. If we
were bred up by our fathers in high Toryism,
when of age we turn a somersault and pose as
Social Democrats; if we learned the gospel at
our mother's knee we profess Buddhism with
the sprouting of our whiskers. The social and
moral barriers set up by our fathers we throw
down, and just as pigs when driven in one di
rection turn their snouts the other way, so do
we so do our children, which is an evidence in
favor of Darwinlanism, showing that the por
cine character still inheres.
It was regarded of old as a canon by romance
writers, that the final chapter of the last vol
ume, be it the se. enth as in the days of Rich
ardson, or the third as in the days of Mudie
and Smith, should end with the marriage of
the hero and heroine. A cruel and wayward
late held the couple apart through the entire
story, but they came together in the end. And
there was a reason for this. Marriage is the
. oUpar of the romance of life. It concludes
one epoch and opens another, and that which
It opens is prosaic It was concluded, and con

v Saturday. April 27, 1889. J
Jfe- In'the lines of country produce there has
"(been an increase in volume of tradethis week
over last. The old stock of vegetables has
been shoved onto market; at nominal prices.
" A Liberty street produce commission merchant
, reports sales of a fair article of old potatoes at
20c per bushel. The time is close at hand when
new stock will be in lull supply. Cincinnati
markets are already supplied with Southern
potatoes, and Pittsburg will be supplied by
The only question with holders of old stock
now is, bow much can be realized? Another
week will bring the new crop to the front. Ad-
. vices from the South are that prospects there
for vegetables and fruit are unusually good.
The danger line is passed. tWith prospects of
sew garden stuff extra good the old stock finds
bard roads to travel. The oldest commission
man does not recall the time when potatoes
- ' were as low at this season of the year as they
are now. A marked feature of the week has
been the advance In choice apples. Ten days
ago apples were slow at S2, as the outside price
for fancy. The past few days the same have
been selling readily at $3.
Tropical fruits have been moving out freely
the past week, and the drift is upward.

The tone of markets gives few signs of im-
provement the past week. In general there has
Uieen a weakening in most lines. Com has been
itho exception. Shell corn is scarce and firm at
ian advance over last week's prices. Oats are
S-"in supply beyona the demands of trade, and
.prices have shown drooping tendencies all the
week. j..The same is in a measure true of bran
and bay. A better quality of oats and hay has
been coming to markets ot late than for months
past, but this faot does not serve to arrest the
downward drift. Receipts of cereals have been
larger this week than for a month past.
Flour is 23c per barrel low er than last Satur
day, and Jobbers report sluggish markets at
the decline. Said a leading grain operator: "I
'- have had the lightest trade this week that I
have bad since the beginning of the year." A
"i good U. P-. who will not swear, overhearing

Though receipts of hogs have been light at

nWt industry reaches a MtesfMtory but. J
mance should deal with the romantic period of
life and finish when that reaches its apogee.
The Parliament nf Ijove at Toulouse in the
Twelfth century laid down that love and mar
riage were mutually exclusive terms; that ro
mance died in the sound of wedding bells, or
at longest lingered to the expiration of the
honeymoon. This law has governed novelists
ever since. The Ingenuity of the author has
consisted in devising impediments to the union
of the lovers, and in knocking them out of
their way as the story neared its conclusion.
But in this revolutionary age we have dis
carded the rnle; and carried away by the inno
vating stream the author of this tale has ven
tured to displace the marriage. Had he been
completely lost to reverence for the ancient
canons, in his desire to ba original, he would
have opened his novel with a wedding proces
sion, strutting to the carriages over strewn
flowers, holding bouquets, with the peal of
wedding bells, while the bridegroom's man
circulates, tipping the parson, the curate, the
pewopener, the sexton, the clerk, the bell ring
ers, and all the other sharks that congregate
about a bridegroom, as the fish congregate
about a ship on board of which is a corpse.
But, as the author is still held in check by old
rule, or prejudice, and yet yields somewhat to
the modern spirit of relaxation, he compro
mises between the extremes, and introduces
the marriage in the middle of his tale.
In a novel, a marriage is always built up of
much romantic and picturesque and floral ad
junct. It Is supposed necessarily to Involve
choral hymns, white favors, bridal veils, orange
blossoms, tears in the bride, flaming cheeks in
the bridegroom, speeches at the breakfast, an
old slipper, and a shower of rice. Without
these condiments a wedding is a very insipid
But here we are forced to innovate.
The marriage of Philip Pennycomequlck and
Salome Cusworth was hurried on; there was no
necessity for delay, and it was performed in a
manner so prosaic as to void it of every feature
of romance and refinement.
In the pansh church there was morning prayer
every day at 9, and this service Salome fre

with a spitting sky Philip also attended ma
tins, from "the wicked man" to the final
"Amen." When, however, the service was
concluded a service attended by five Sisteis
of Mercy and three devout ladies the vicar,
instead of leaving the desk, coughed, blew his
nose and glowered down the chnrch.
Then the clerK began to fumble some books,
the five Sisters of Mercy perked up, the devout
ladies, who had moved from their seats to
ward the church door, were seized with a sus
picion that something unusual was about to
takef place, and hastily returned to their
places. The Sisters ot Mercy had with them
one penitent, whom with sugar plums they
were alluring into the paths of virtue. It at
once occurred to the religious women that to
witness a wedding would have an elevating,
Wealthy effect on their penitent, and they re
.Jived to stay, for hex sake, for her sake only,
they, for their parts, being raised above all
mundane interests. Also, the servants of the
vicarage, which adjoined the churchyard, by
some means got wind of what was about to oc
cur, and slipped ulsters over their light cotton
gowns and tucked their caps under pork-pie
hats and tumbled into church, breathing
Then Philip, trying to look as if nothing was
about to happen, came out of his pew, and in
doing so stumbled over a hassock, knocked
down bis umbrella which leaned against the
pew, and sent some hymnals and church ser
vices about the floor. Then he walked up the
church, and was joined by Balome and her sister
The tone both here and Chicago is certainly an
improvement on what it was a weckago.

intoned the responses with vociferous ardor,
and the penitent took the liveliest Interest In

As Philip walked home with Salome under
the same umbrella, from the points of which
the discolored water dropped, he said in a low

to propose to Janet, as I have been chiseled out
of my 160.
"Yes; out of my annuity. If the will had
been valid I should have had that of my own;
but now I havo nothing and am forced to goto
you for every penny to buy tobacco. It is dis
gusting. Til marry Janet. I am glad she is a
widow and available. She has a hundred and
fifty per annum of her own, and is certainly
left something handsome by Baynes."
"Fiddlesticks!" exclaimed Mrs. Sidebottom.
"I will, indeed, unless I am more liberally
treated. I hate to be dependent on you for
everything. I wish I haa served a caveat
against your getting administration of the
property, and done something, to get the old
will put to rights."
Mrs. Sidebottom turned green with anger
"I will go to Philip's wedding breakfast, or
dinner, or dance, or whatever he is going to
have, and snatch a kiss from little Janet, pull
her behind the window curtains and propose
for her 150, 1 will."
Lambert's mother was very angry, but she
said no more. She knew the character of her
son; he would not bestir himself to do what he
threatened. His bark was worse than his bite.
He fumed and then turned cold.
But Philip gave no entertainment on his
wedding day, invited no one to bis house: con
sequently Lambert had not the opportunity he
desired for pulling Janet behind the window
curtains, snatching a kiss and proposing for
"I shall refuse to them," said Mrs. Sidebot
tom. "And return to York?" asked her son.
"I can't leave at once," answered the mother.
"I have the house on my hands. Besides, I
must have an eye on the factory. Lamb, if
you bad any spirit in yon you would learn
bookkeeping, so as to be able to control the ac
counts. I do not trust Philip; how can I, when
be marries a bagman's daughter? It i a proof
of deficiency in common sense, and a lack of
sense of rectitude. Who was Salome's mother?
Wa do not know her maiden name. These sort
of people are like diatoms that fill the air, and
no one can tell whence they came and what
they are. They are everywhere about us and
all equally Insignificant"
Mrs. Sidebottom had but the ears of her son
into which to pour her discontent, for she had
no acquaintances in Mergatroyd.
On coming there she had been meet bvthe
manufacturers' wives in a cordial spirit. Her
brother was highly respected, and they has
tened to call on her and express their readi
ness to do her any kindness she might need as
stranger in the town. She would have been
received Into the society there a genial one
had she been inclined. But she was super
cilious. She allowed the ladles of Mergatroyd
to understand that she belonged to another
anda higher order of beings, and that the days
in which the gods and goddesses came down
from Olympus to hold converse with men were
The consequence was that she was left to her
self, and she grumbled at the dullness of a
place which was only dull to her, because of
her want of tart. No more kindly, friendly

people are to be found in England than the
North Country manufacturers, but the quali
ties of frankness, directness, which are con
spicuous in them, were precisely those quali
ties which Mrs. Sidebottom was incapable of
appreciating, were qualities which to her mind
savored of barbarism.
And yet Mrs. Sidebottom belonged, neither
by birth nor by marriage nor by acceptance, to
a superior class. She was the daughter of a
manufacturer, and the widow of a small coun
try attorney. As the paralytic in the sheep
market waited for an angel to put him into the
pool, so did Mrs. Sidebottom spend her time
and exhaust her powers in vain endeavors to
get dipped in the cleansing basin of county so
ciety, in which she might be purged of the taint
of trade. And, like the paralytic of the story,
she had to wait, and was disappointed annual
ly, and bad the mortification of seeing some
neighbor or acquaintance step past ber and en
ter the desired circle, while she was making
ready and beating about for an introducer.
She attended concerts, public balls, went to
missionary meetings; she joined working par
ties for charitable objects, took stalls at
bazaars, hoping by these means to get within
the vortex of the fashionable world and drawn
in, but was always disappointed. Round every
eddy may be Been sticks and straws that spin
on their own axes; they make dashes inward,
and are repelled, never succeeding in being
caught by the coil of the whirlpool. So was she
ever hovering on the outskirts of the aristo
cratic ring, ever aiming to pierce it, and always
missing her object.
A poem by Kenrick, written a the corona
tion of George HX, represents that celebrated
beauty and toast, tne Countess of Coventry, re
cently deceased, applying to Pluto for permis
sion to return to earth and mingle in the enter
tainments of the coronation. Pluto gives his
consent; she may go but as a ghost remain
Then says the Counter:
"A fig for fine sights, if unseen one's fine face.
What signifies seeing. If oneself is not seen t"
So Mrs. Sidebottom found that it was very
little pleasure to her to hover about genteel so
ciety, and see into it, without herself being
seen in It. Her descent to Mergatroyd was in
part due to a rebuff she had met with at York,
quite as much as to her desire to conciliate her
half-brother. She trusted that when she re
turned to York she would be so much richer
than before that this would afford her the
requisite momentum which might impel her
within the magic circle, within which, when
once rotating, she would be safe, confident of
being able to maintain her place
"My dear Lamb," said she, "I may inform
you, in the strictest confidence, that I see my
way to become wealthy. There Is a speculation
on foot, of which I have received information
through my York agent, to buy up land ana
bnild a great health resort near Bridlinzton, to
be called lodlnopolis or Yeoville, the name is
not quite fixed. No one is to know anything
about it but the few who take preference
shares. I am most anxious to realize some of
the securities that came to me through my dar
ling brother's death, so as to invest. The man
ager is called Beaple Yeo."
"Never heard of him."
"And the chairman Is the Earl of Schofield.
Mr. Beaple Yeo and the Earl together guaran
tee 17 per cent think of that. Lamb! on their
own guarantee! aii Earl, too and the funds
are only three or three and a half!"
A twelvemonth slipped away, easily, hap
pily; to none more so than to Philip Penny
oomequlck. To the Fates, how strange must seem the
readiness with which women plunge into mat
rimony, and the shyness with which some men
look at it; for matrimony is emphatically an in
stitution designed for the comfort of man irre
spective of the int rests of the woman. The
married man;ceaSo3 to have care about his
meals, they come to him; he gives no thought
to his servants, they are managed for him; he
is not troubled about his clothing, it now hangs
together, whereas formerly it fell to pieces.
When the married man prepares to shave, the
soao dish is full, his tidy is clean, his razors in
order; the bachelor finds all in confusion. Be
fore marriage, he who had a cook was served
with Indian rubber; after it, he gets his meat
succulent and well cooked. Before marriage,
the linen went to the wash and only half re-

Bnt to the woman matrimony is by no means
a relief from cares. On the contrary, the wo
man passes through the ring into an arena of
battle. We are told by anthropologists that in
the primitive condition of society a subdivision
of tasks took place; one set of men undertook
to till the earth and manage the domestic ani
mals, while another girded on their arms and
defended the infant community. These latter,
for their services, were fed by the tillers, housed,
and clothed, with food they had not grown,
houses they had not buiided, clothing they had
not woven. The same subdivision of labor con
tinues still in the family where the man is the
tiller and toiler, and the woman is the military
element. She marches round the confines of
bis house, fights dally battles with those foes
of domestic felicity the servants. When they
oversleep themselves, she routs them out of
their beds; when they neglect the dusting, she
flies in pursuit to bring them to their duties;
when they are impudent, she drives them out
of the house.
With what unflagging zeal does she maintain
her dally conflicts. How she countermines,
discovers ambushes, circumvents, throws open
the gates, and charges the foe !
Now consider what was the life of the girl be
fore she married. She had no worries, no war
fare, she was petted, admired; she enjoyed
herself, indulged her caprices unrestrained,
gave way to her humors nnrebuked. Her bon
nets, her dresses were given to her, she had no
care what she might eat, any more than the
lilies of the field, only, unlike them, devoting
herself to the thoughts of her clothing for
which, however, she had not to pay. Unmar
ried girls were anciently termed spinsters, and
are so derisively still in the banns, for they
formerly spunthelinen for their future homes;
now they toil not neither do tney spin.
Then comes marriage, and all is changed.
They enter into a world ot discords and disa
greement. They have to grow long nails and to
sharpen their teeth; they have tb haggle with
shopkeepers, fight their servants; whereas the
husbands, those sluggard kings ot creation,
smack their lips over their dinners and lounge
in their easy chairs, and talk politics with
their friends, and smile, and smile, unconscious
of the struggles and paBSions that rage down
stairs. The eyes that, in the girl, looked at the beau
ties of creation, in the married woman search
out delinquencies in their domestics and de
fects in the household furniture. The eyes
that looked for violets now peer for cobwebs;
that lingered lovingly on the sunset glow, now
examine the coal bill; and the ear that listed to
the song of Philomel, is now on the alert for a
male voice in the kitchen. The nose that of
old inhaled the perfume of the rose, now pokes
into pots and pans in quest of dripping.
From what has been saia above, the reader
may conclude that the position of the wife,
though a belligerent one. is at all events regal.
She is queen of the house, and if she has
trouble with servants, it is as a sovereign who
has to resist revolutionary movements among
No more mistaken idea can well be enter
tained. As the Pope writes himself, "Servant
of the servants of Heaven," so does the lady
of the house subscribe herself servant of the
servants of the establishment. If she searches
into their shortcomings, remonstrates, and re
sents them, it is as the subject criticising, mur
muring at, and revolting personally against
the tyranny of her oppressors. So far from
being the head of the house she is the door
mat, trampled on, kicked, set at nought,
obliged to swallow all the dirt that is brought
into the house. .
Marriage had produced a change in Philip.
It bad made him less stony, angular, formal.
Matrimony often has a remarkable effect on
those who enter into it, reducing their pecu
liarities, softening their harshnesses, and ac
centuating those points of similarity which are
to be found in the two brought into close asso
ciation, so that in conrse of time a singular re
semblance in character and features is observ
able in married folk. In an old couple there is
to be seen occasionally a likeness as that of
brother and sister. This is caused by there be
ing exposed to the same caresses and the same
strokes of fortune; they are weathered by the
same breezes; moistened by the same rains. In

Stock and Oil Exchanges Adjourn Until
At a members' meeting held on the floor
of the Exchange at 11 o'clock: Saurday it
was agreed to adjourn until 10 o'clock
Thursday. New York, Oil City and Brad
ford took, the same action. Some of the oil
men voted in the negative on account of the
critical condition of the market, and the
risk the long interest would incur, but the
stock brokers almost unanimously favored
the proposition, as it would enable them to
swap ideas and probably bring holder and
buyer into closer relations. Business in
stocks has been so unsatisfactory for several
days that any kind of a change would be wel
come. The prospect is good for a stronger and
couple, comes the reciprocal action of the inner
powers their passions, prejudices so that
they recoil on each other. They come to think
alike, to feel alike, as wen as to loot alike.
The roan unconsciously loses some of his
ruggedness. and the woman acquires some of
his breadth and strength. Tjjey become in
some measure reflectors to each other, the
light one catches is cast on and brightens the
other, and they mirror whatever passes along
the face ot the other.
The subtle, mysterious modeling process bad
begun on Philip, although but recently mar
ried. Janet was no longer in the house: she
bad returned to France, and as her constitu
tion was delicate had followed advice, and gone
to the South for the winter.
Mrs. Sidebottom and the captain had shaken
off the dust from their feet against Mergatroyd,
and had returned to their favorite city, York,
where they resumed the interrupted gyrations
about the whirlpool of fashionable life, and
Mrs. Sidebottom made her usual rushes, still
ineffectual, at its center.
Consequently, Philip was left to the undis
turbed influence of Salome, and this influence
affected him more than he was conscious of,
and would have allowed was possible. He was
very happy, but be was not the man to confess
it, least of all to his wife. As a Canadian
Indian deems it derogatory to his dignity to
express surprise at any wonder of civilization
shown him, so did Philip consider that it com
ported with his dignity to accept all the com
forts, the ease, the love that surrounded him
as though familiar with them from the begin
ning. Englishmen who have been exposed to
tropic suns in Africa, have their faces shrivelled
and lined. When they return to England,
in the soft, humid atmosphere the flesh ex
pands and drinks in moisture at every pore.
The lines fade out and the flesh becomesplump.
So did the sweet, soothing Influence of Salome,
equable as it was gentle, fill, relax, refresh the
spirit of Philip and restore to him some of the
lost buoyancy of youth. Salome was admira
bly calculated to render him happy, and Philip
was not aware of the rare good fortune which
had given him a wife who had the self-restraint
tojeeep her crosses to herself. That is not the
way with all wives. Many a wife makes a beast
of burden of her husband, lading him with
crosses, heaping on his shoulders not only ber
own, great or small, but also all those of her
relatives, friends and acquaintances. Such a
wife cracks a whip behind her good man;
drives him through the town, stopping at every
house and calling: "Any old crosses! Old
crosses! Old crosses! Chuck them on, his back
is broad to bear them!" precisely as the scaven
ger goes through the streets with his cart and
burdens it with the refuse of every house.
Many a wife takes a pride in thus breaking the
back, and galling the sides, and knocking to
gether 4he knees of her husband with the
crosses she piles on his shoulders.
As we walk through the wilderness of life,
burrs adhere to the coat of Darby and to the
skirts of Joan. Why should not each carry his
or her own burrs, if they refuse to be picked,
off and thrown away? Why should Joan col
lect all hers and poke them down the neck of
Darby, and expect him to work them down his
back from the nape to the heel? Little thought
had Philip how, unperceived and by stealth,
Salome sought the burrs that adhered to him,
removed them and thrust them into her own
bosom, bearing them there with a smiling face,
and leaving him unconscious that he had been
delivered from any, and that they were fretting
We men are sadly regardless of the thousand
little acts of forethought that lighten and ease
our course. We give no thanks, we are not
even aware of what has been done for us.
Nevertheless, our wives do not go unrewarded,
though unthanked for what they have done or
borne; their gentle attentions have served to
give us a polish and a beauty we had not before
we came into their tender hands.
A bright face met Philip when he returned
from the factory every day. If Salome saw that
he was downcast, she exerted herself to cheer
him; 11 that he was cheerful, she was careful
not to discourage him. Always neat in person,
fresh in lace, and pleasant in humor, keeping
out of Philip's way whatever might annoy him,
she made him as happy as be could well be.
Perfectly happy Philip could not be, because
unable to shake off the sense of Insecurity that
attended his change ot fortune Constitution

dazzled and frightened when exposed to the

Last week's business at the banks was suffi
ciently large to show that there is something
going on in Pittsburg besides sitting around
and complaining that 'the times are awfully
dull." While industrial and commercial activ
ity Is not so pronounced, to judge merely from
surface indications, as in some tormer seasons,
there is a large movement constantly going for
ward in all departments of trade that piles up
a huge aggregate or cash and keens everybody
busy to keep up with engagements. There has
never been a time in the history of the city
when business was in a healthier condition or
rested on a more satisfactory basis than it does
to-day. To establish this statement beyond
cavil a few figures may be quoted. Here they
