" Now I 'in going to tell you just
what -my huSband said to met this
morning, doctor, 'word for word,'-
and- the invalid; Mrs: Stephens, - lay
back on the soft pillow, the veil*
pictive of distres!i. • 'he family phy
sician,.who was called on an average
to the Stephens mansion three hun-.
dred and sixty times a year., drew a
'chair close to the couch and waited
quictly"fur his patient to open her
book of complaints.
" Last night, you see, doctor, I had
an ill turn and he wanted to go for
you; but when l got so he dared to
leave me, lie concluded then, that ho
had: better let you sleep." •
" Much obliged to lim," said The
doctor, with sarcastic emphasis 'on
the personal' pronoun; " Last night,
was the first undisturbed night's rest;
I have enjoyed for a Week.-" -
Mrs. Stephens continued:
Towanla.. Pa.
*" This spell is the same as I had
the last, time you were sent for doe
".1 slight nervous attack," broke
in the physician; nothing more."
" Well, it don't make any differ
ence what you call it, it was mighty
hard to bear. Let me tell you what
my husband said first-, doctor, before
we -- go - into symptoms. When he was
going, down : to breakfast he says to
me, ' Kate, what shalt) send you up?'
" Says I, ' I don't want anything
in the world but a good strong cup
of tea. Tell Bridget to - send it up in
the little teapot.' I saw, doctor, that
he did move after 3 said thiS, so I
turned and looked at hiin, and such
'a picture lof rage and disgust I never
saw in thy- life. Finally, sayii he;
Tea'! tea ! tea! it's nothing big
tea from morning till night, Kate ;
you are the color of a Chinaman
-now. Why don't you order a good
piece (4 beefsteak and a slice of
brown bread and a cup of,chocolate
That would be a sensible breakfast'
" But, John,' says I, .you forget
that I am sick and have not an ap
petite.' I -was already to cry, but I
was determined he shouldn't have
the satisfaction of. Seeing the tears
"'Forgot,' says he, ' forget ! I wish
to Heaven 1. could forget. It 's noth
ing but grunt and groan from one
year's end to the other. I have lost
all patience with you,' says he. When
we lived in part of a house and you
did yofir own housework; you were
as well and ins happy as anybody.
No man ever had a pleasanter home
than John St6phens ; but what have
:I now to leave or 'come back to?'
And this,..dector, is what he ended
np with:
"-' Kate,' says he, ' yen aro nothing
more nor less than a drunkard, and
in the sight of Gad,
.moro culpable
than most
. of .11i3 men'who Anger
through the streets, because the ma
jofits of those poor devils have some
sort of an excuse for their conduct,
and you hay n't the slightest. . You
have a luXurioua home, a husband
doing his level best'to make you hap
-py--everything under the light 01
the sun, and yet you will persist in
swilling . tea.' Yes, doctor, swilling
was the word he use&l-bool boo !
boo ! 0. dear me! to think I should
ever have lived to hear such dreadful
language out of My husband's mouth;
and then he says, and making me

"Pretty plain *talk," interrupted
the doctor, with a shrug of his broad
"Oh, yes," sobbed ,the victim ;
".and so awfully course
,and unkind.
If I had had a spell and died before
his Paco, don't believe he would
have cased 'a snap E,of his finger. I
tell you, Dr. Ellis, there is • such a
thing as a man's heart getting har

itletteb ink).

with' laconism absol ely painful.
"But my husband as nothing in
the world to trouble hi but my poor
health; and I am suxe 1 I can't help
that." This re k was more in an
swer to her cr.. partion's tone and
manner thani he one single word
that had asbidentally escaped his
, lips' and this the doctor felt.
'Anybody would think by the way
be goes on," continued the irate wo
man; " that I enjoy my . belf with
spasms and cramps and fainting fits.
Anybody would think it was a pleas
ure to me to feel, every time I see a
funeral procession, as if the hearse
was going to stop at our dOor next.
0, yes, such a life is very enjoyable—
very, 'indeed."
Ellis took no notice of these
last words ; the./ man's eyes grew
luminous, and his whole face de=
dared that he considered himself
master of the situation; and if Mrs.
Stephens had not been ,so entirely
taken up with her own ailments,
mental and physical, that honest
countenance would have betrayed
- " You say," he began, settling him
self in the large easy chair anct as
suming a strictly professional air,
" that your..husband has nothing - to
trouble him but youfhealth; how do
yon know that, liffs. Stephens'? "
" HoW ? Why, how do I— know
anything? By the evidence - pf my
senses. Don't I know that John
Stephens has a splendid business
thAt.looks after itself, a' magnificent
income, and money enough to live
on the bare interest as a family need
to live, if he never entered his office
again while he has breath ?"
" But money is n't everything, Mrs
Stephens," proceeded tlip
with a calmness .:almost Mephisto
phelian. " There are other troubles
besides money troubles. How about
health, madam ?='
" Health? " 'replied the lady, with
a smile she intended to .ba sarcastic
to the last &gee. "Health, Dr.
Ellis? Why, there is n't a healthier
or sounder man in the United States.
He eats mac in one meal than I do
in three' months! "
" There is nothing the matter with
your husband's stomach, Mrs.
Stephens." Dr. Ellis shaded his face
with his hands and waited further
developments. Mrs. Stephens took
this attempt at forced concealment
for emotion, and immediately tom:m
ing, a sitting posture, brushed her
eyet and lookelpierciugly into her
companion's face.
" Why do • you accent the word
' stomach ' so strongly, Dr. Ellis ? "
she inquired in anxious tones. Mrs.
Stephens was forgetting herself, and
this the doctor hailed as an excellent
` Only that I might make You un
ddstand that a man's digestion
mild be most unexceptionable, and
yet ho be far from sound in other di
rections." •
" Then you mean to tell mo that
my husband is sick? "
" I do." '
"Perhapi you will go still further
and say dangerously? "
" If 'you desire it." •
"0, Dr. Ellis,.how cold and un
feeling you are ! I should think you
ought to know, by this tirne-- 7 " and
just hero . Mrs. Stephens broke down
entirely and sobbed as if her heart
would break.
" Ought, to know 'Oat; Mrs.
Stephens ?" inquired the doctor, with
uncalled-for deliberation.
" You ought to know—to know—
that my—up , husband's thealth and
life are of ta good deal :more conse
quence to me than my oWn."
" Ah; indeed," interrupted the
physician, with an elevation of the
busby frayebiows, immensely sugges
tive of a contrary opinion, as well as
several very excellent reasons for
said opinion.
" Dr. Ellis, will you be kind 'enbugh
to tell me what 's the matter with my
husband ? "
Mrs. Steptions was oti her feet—
tears all o.
wiped away, eyes ilaihin
resentfulwith spirit, and only the
little quiver, of her lip to show how
deep a wound the kind heart in her
bosom had sustained. There she,
stood, reproachful, defiant, deter-,
wined, womanly. The doctor wns.
delighted, and..sileh an honest face
it was that he carried round with
him from door to door, from sunrise
to sunset. every day in the year, that
it; was a mighty hard matter to keep
it from an immediate betrayal of the
whole purpose.
" Mrs. Stephens," said he, " you
have no cause to be alarmed. If I
can only get your co-operation in
this business, I feel certain I shall be
able to make a well wan of your hus
band in a few months at the longest; ,
but, as true as I sit here before
I cannot do this. alone."
" Why have I not been informed of
this„before? " broke in Mrs. S., im
" Who was there td inform you,
madam ? Your - husband does not
know his condition, and I should
really like to be told when you have
been .sufficiently calm to hear all that
was necessary for you to know."
-" But, Dr. Ellis, I should think
you ought to have understood that
my own health and comfort ate noth
ing compared to my husband's."
Mrs. Stephens was weeping again.
"There is no sacrifice that I would
not make for him."
, " Curious creature," - Muttered the
doctor; " delightful bundle of con
tradictions. How the mischief should
I know, Mrs. Stephens" how much
you care for your husband? I am
sure you spent the last hour com'-
plaining about him. Is that the way
women generally testify their- regard
for their husbands ?"
"Oh, don't, Dr. Ellis; please don't,"
pleaded the terrified woman. " I
will never complain again—never—
if you only let me know what I can
do for him. Do you know, doctoi,
1 had beg,tin -to think lately that
something must be amiss with him,
he is n-rowing so irritable., Poor
dear, h p ow wicked and thoughtless I
have been."
" This, then, is the trouble. I shall
take it for granted, madam, that you
know something about phsiolog,y;
and can follow me without difficulty?'
" Oh, yes, for mercy's sake go on."
"Very well ; I find that the ,Peri

"The pericardium ?" repeated Mrs.
"You knoW what that is, I suppose?"
Evidently - MrS. Stephens'• anatomi
cal knowledge was limited. She
shook her head in despair. " Some
thing about the heart, is it.? 1" she
asked at last. `, • '
" Yes, the pericardiumis tba mem
braneons sae that holds the heart.
Well, sometimes this sac—it! is no
matter about particulars, Mrs. Ste

to a standstill.,
"It 's enough, though, for me to
say that We are both passably anx

where it belongs. Mr. Stephens
must be amused. He wants the
opera, the lecture, the social leircle,

not, Mrs. Stephens? "
" 0 yes—l used to," and Urs. Ste

obliged to wipe both his eyes and his

must remember this, madam- . --do not

do not treat him like au :invalid.

John Stephens sought his home
that evening with a heavy heart. His
wife he believed to, be a confirmed
invalid or hypocondriac—it mattered
little which ; one was as bad as the
other. His remonstrances were .of
no avail. He was doUbtful even
whether his wife loved him. He
opened the door softly' with his latch
key. A strain of music mot and
transfixed him on the very threshold.
Abt's beautiful song was being.'ren
dered, and his wife was the musician.
He was just in timp to hear:
For a full year this charming voice
had been as silent as the graie.
"Company, perhaps," lie, mut
tered. Curiosity overcame him. He
opened the parlor door and peeped.

becomingly attired, all alone, as en

" WhatJdoes this mean, ';Kate?"
ho asked, :ivith outstretched arms.
" That I have given up teal and am
going to try hard to be well. I guess
my voice will come back, John."
" I guess so," he replied, holding
her tight to his heart.
Three months after this the care
was so radical that Dr. Ellie made a
clean breast of the whole thing; and
there is no word or set of words that
can provoke so hearty a laugh in the
happy home of the Stephens' as this
physiologically scientific one—peri
Owing to a wise prodigality of
good in nature, or a wisely imposed
delusion in men (says a writer in an
English inagazine), ideal wives are
much more common than ideal hus
bands. They are not found in every
house; nor indeed in every street ;
but there are a few of them in coun
try and town, and we all know some
of them. They are not,olar wives ;
but, unfortunately, the wives of oth
ers. Onr wives may have extended
catalogues of, charms and virtues,
but ideal honors do not sit upon
them. Men are ' more enthusiastic
and given to dreaming than women,
and hence the excess of female over
male perfection. If the power of
idealizing were equal in both sexes,
the chances, arci they would hate one
another. As it is, women are not in
the least ashamed of being called
angels and enhantresses.
If men will go astray in this way,
it is no business of women to set
them right. They are little given to
extravagant estimates themselves,
but they arc hungry for hyperbolical
False. They sit demurely, and smile
the, last shred of a man's reason
away,.shile he assures .them that
they combine all the charms Of pagan
goddesses and all the virtues of
Christian saints. If men, with their
warm and capricious' imaginations,
choose to place them •on the thrones
while the real sovereigns aro out for
a stroll, they don't care. They do
the honors - as though th 4 were at
least heirs apparent; and they suffer
no more qualms of conscience than
if they had but just established their
claim to a privilege- from which they
had long been unfairly' alienated.
Ideal wives are of low stature and
extremely. fair. " They aro Oft and
gentle in manner and slow_ 'of rsno
don. They have blue eyes, golden
hair, rich mezzo-soprano voices, and
wear moderate dreskimprovers.
Their hair and its color are' their
own, and they fear strong men, but
like to look at them from windows,
balconies, carriages, and other places
of security. They are a trifle nn:
happy, and have not been tharriedlo
their first love. They cannot sew
very well, but they have a positively
maddening- way of leaning lover the'
backs of chairs while they ere'asking
their husbands if they shall wear
-blue or pink ribbons. They have no,
mothers living. They care r little for
going into society. They never de - -
sire to obtain the good- wishes of
other men, save when their husband's
interest is to that effect.. ,They are
not pnfully 'clever musicians, but
"The eyes that cannot weep'
Are the saddest eyes of all.o'
they know some sweet simple airs
and sing those at evening by 'the
'open window . They are liable to be
by the servants' and are
imposed upon by trades-people.
They reg ard their husbands as su
preme arbiters - in all matters. They
,would stay as they are or fly to New
.ealand with him, as he desired.
C Between the ideal and the real
there is a class which may be called
polyglotically and meizo-ideal. We
see them muck oftener than the ideal,
but unfortunately , not so often es the
real. They are tall and slender,
somewhat yellow. They have mild,
gray eyes, and noses " tip-tilted, like
a flower." They have sensitive, sym
pathetic mouths and simple hearts.
They, are not utterly amiable, but
are, easily wooed to peace. Their
knowledge of household affairs is se
curate, but not obtrusive. It is never
visible except in exigencies and under
excitement. They are ready to go
out when it is desirable, and they are
ready to remain 'at home. They do
not abase the servants in the parlor,
or despise all other women. They
have a placid affection for finery, but
are not passionately extravagant.
Th,oy accept presents from their hus
bands as when they were lovers.
They answer in all things that they
are subject to their lords, but they
rebel sometimes just enough to
make the subjugation a matter of in
terest, and the reconciliation a de ,
licious repetition of old love sceneii.!
Real wives are the most easily
found of all. They are ninety-nine
out of every hundred
men. They are such as your wife,
dear sir, though' you wonldnot dare
to tell her so, for you have.preiiouslY
quoted her to herself as one' in a
thousand. They are short of temper,
and have morning quarrelil,with ser
vants abOut eggs, or table linen or
the caster of the arm chair. They
are dictionaries of chit-ghat, and
press it in your ears while your eyes
are trying to obtain consol4tion from
a ' newspaper. They are Continually
predicting your rain if ;you don't
abandon your be friend. They won
der aloud at their enduring your be
ing tea minutes latti for dinner. If
you go out, only for half an hour in
the evening—to the club lor to see
some bachelor friend—they ask you
what kept ion out the whole evening,
and whether you knew they wished
'to talk to you about the kitchen range.
They wonder where you Order your
coal, and if you know yoP get only
aalf the proper-weight. If you fall
sleep at the fire, you wake to find
them in tears over your neglect; and
if you try to read, they reVile you for
your rudeness and want of consider
ation. They do not know; how mon
eys goes, and they wonder you are
content to live ,in so mean a- house.
If it is summer they hate Bray, and
won't go there - for a few months, be 7
cause all their friends el at Harro
gate or Brighton, or Btindoran or
Tramore. If it is winter; you might
be able to afford more than three
parties in the season, or if not !you
should go to the Southlof Europe,
where you may have good society
without ,much expense. They get
millinery in three different houses,
that no ono bill may seem; excessive ;
and they never can discover how you
are not, speechlessly grateful fo
their economy.

in this latitude, but one which - al
