happiness; and'took an inventory of
my waidrobe. - Like their owner, my
coat -.llhl pants had evidently seen
better days, for, although rusty and
threadbare,- .they showed traces of
their original color and texture. I
commenced to ruminate on my con
ditioii•and achieve plans for the fu

were the words. of Horace Greeley :
"Go west, and you are a liar "

I felt that I bad snildenly Otainged
places with hiM7 7 4IM he was the at
twiny and I was the client; "bat tak
ing no notice of his words, I repeat
ed the.question with a variation.
"Is she of age ?" '
" Yes," was the reply, "she is of
age and as Obstinate as a mule."
"Disinherit her," I sugmted.
"Oh;" said he, with a •ugof hie
shoulder, "I have tiled. everything.
I have told her she should not have
a penny of my Money ; I have kept
her on , bread. and Water y:-
hired go
ernessei to watch her; in fact, I have
left no atone unturned."
"There remains , only ho Methods:
incarcerate her in , an insane asyltnn,
or put detectives on his track arid
convict him of-some ignobli action,"
I said. -
"Your Met suggestion is the best.
But even if I shquld convict him of
murder she would imagine 'that ,it
was a conspiracy on my l part, and
marry hini at the gallows.
He remained in deep thought for
several minutes, and then said :
"Young man, I don't think your
business is very lucrative ; how would
yon like to change it for something
more profitable ?"
;Change or starvation was evident
ly a necessity with ma, sopf course I
had no objection.a. to offer; in fact,
any escape from naY present position
was like a godsend to me. I impart
ed my willingness to make any rea
sonable • change. We • soon agreed
upon teams which seemed tome more
than liberal, and together concocted
some plan to bring the young lady
to aubmission. • 4k-,
I had some compunction of con
science, for two against one, and th at
one of te weaker sex, seemed .hardly,
,fair; but the novelty and the
mance, and the solid cash connected
with it, reconciled me to the situation.
Just as the sun from the west was
gliding down the Capitol dome with
the last gleams of departing day, the
train frbra Baltimore came puffing in.
It was Cfirismas Eve, .and the busy
crowds were hurrying to their homes.
Tiro days,before, David Moss, at
torney and solicitor, seedy and
threadbare, had left Washington for
Baltimore. This evening the train
brought hack 'David Moss elegantly
attired, "gentleman." It is astonish
ing how one's drem inererses their
self-respect. No doubt yolonius
thought of this when he said to dais
son, ." Costly thy habit as thy purse
can buy, for thyapparel oft proclaims
the man."
What a change it had made in my
feelings! A few days ago so des
pondent, now: buoyed up 'by hope
and my good - looks; I feltas happy
as a, king. my mirror had told me
the same flattering tale which it tells
many a belle. My. ambrosial hicks
were curled in style, my blonde mus
tache was waxed to perfection, my.
blue eyes sparkled, and my mannerly
form was immersed in au elegant:suit
of broadcloth. Besides all this, I
had cultivated a becoming Pallor, for
I had to play the role of invalid. A
carriage was Baiting; 1 was assisted
into it by obsequious footmen, and
sank languidly .on the 'cushions. I
was driven to an elegant mansion,
met by my host, and almost carried
to alrtxurious chamber. I was too
fatigued: to - go,.down stairs that eve
ning,lnit the amount of supper which
I contrived to swallow, and the wine
it took to wash it down, would , have
astonished a restauranteur.'
In the morning my head was so
bad I took my coffee in
,bed. At
dinner time I managed, with some
assistance, to get to the dining-room,
and for the first time met Kate Mars
ton, the young lady. Whose earnest
hopes I had come to overthrow. Af
ter the first glance I began to think
that perhaps old , Mr. Marston had
made a grave
_mistake in bringing
me there. I never had an idt!; my
busy life in college and my money at
times afterwards, had allowed uo
margin for dreams. But 'I am sure
Kate Marston embodied. all the ele
ments which would have composed
my ideal if I had possessed one.
She was small, a perfect brimette
with glorious eyes, which might spar
kle with love ,or hate; red lips and
cheeks, lustrous blac hair, white
shapely teeth,cand in fact, everything
which is charming in woman. She
treated me very kihdly, gently, be
cause I, her father's friend, was on
invalid. If I had been apparently
strong and hearty - she would,,,have
suspected her father's motives, and
met every advance with rebuff: lie
had brought several. eligible young
men to his house,hut Kate had sent
them about their business in anything .
but a complimentary style. All the
ladies who had been hired as com
panions she bad won over to her
cause: They abetted her in disobe
dience, and were discharged in dis
grace. It was planned that while
drawing on her sympathy,.and seek
ing kindly offices from her, I.should
watch over her, keep With her as
much l as I could, and - excite, if pos
sible, ',the jealousy of her lover, and
tempt him to some desperate action.
I felt immediately that it would be
a pleasant task, although had I been
as I appeared, a young man of landed
estate, I would have entered into it
with greater zeal.. For a few days
everything progressed, smoothly.
Kate was asiduous in her attentions
to my comfort. would lie on the
sofa and she would read to me in her
dulcet tones. I enjoyed this heartily'
for she was really a good reader, and
Tennyson or Byron from her lips
was the sweetest music to me.
When my head ached, and I often
had severe spells with my head, how
tenderly she.bathed 'it with those deft
fingers of hers: I would have been
content to live and bask in the sun
shine of her presence forever, but
obserVations showed me that there
was a; necessity for action. Some
times Kate would shut herself up in
her room for an hour or two. Mewl
while 11 1 on whom time alway s hung
heaviii when she was absent, pl l eed
my. chalk by , the window to view
passers-by. Invariably I saw a man
pacing up and down in front of the
house..) He was of medium size, light
complxon; blue grey eyes, long
side-whiskers, a mixture between
flaxen and brown; . most people Would
have called him:ether good looking,
but- a close observer of ; character
would have noted the strangely
shaped forehead and the gradura
sinking in of the - features at the
bridge of the nose. I was not, long io
finding out that this was Kate's lover.
I-caught him looking at me' with
malignant scowl. With. Kate's re
appearance he always disappearml.
I was certain that they were keeping.
up a correspondence, bat I never saw
him receive any letters; I
I now began to concoct plans to
prevent this. I begged her as a great
favor to help me in wring some lei
ters which was a necessity for me tO
write, but which, on account 'of my
weakness, I was unable to do. I kept
her for long hours writing -letter's
about all sorts of things to imaginary
people, which of course were nevft
mailed._ I haVe some of them yet,
care fblly put away in my writing
desk.:, Then we took long rides, and
she;helieving me to be a stranger
the city, pointed out objects of iu j
terest, and,answered the numerous
questions which I Chose to ask. I
think at those times she Must have
thought me very stupid, and posse
sed of very little information, b;
shealways answered me with the,
same unwearying
With aJ her flrmne9s l and as her
father termed it s obstinacy, there was;
always in / her that gentleness and
sweetness which characterizes the;
true lady. I only sighed that she had,
not.beitowed her love on some wor
thy object—myself, for instance.
Lribliily, I met no one who knew me
as David Moss, attorney and solicitor
ikt, law • but nearly always passed
somewhere in our rides her lover,
whom her father had told me was
called Walter Reveaux.
At such times Kate would - bow
and smile, while - he returned a haugh
ty nod, • which brought frightened,
grieved, _looks into Kate's fair face.
Then an 'mime desire would seize
me to jump out of the carriage and
give him the threshing he deserved,
but discretion being the better part
of- valor,'l would, on reflection, re
main seated, and by playftil badinage
endeavor to coax back Kate's smiles.
had been at,Marston's house near
ly a month, and had been treated as
an honored guest by both master and
mistress. The change in my life
seemed almost as wonderful as the
miracles wrought by the genii of Al
ladin's lamp. I came slowly down
stairs on this morning a little earlier
than usual, and entered the dining
room.4 I had expected to find no
one there, and was astonished to see
Kate kneeling before her pet canary
weeping bitterly, and between her
sobs saying, "Good-bye, Sweetheat,"
for so' Ole called the bird. I entered
unobserved, so I slipped out again,
closing,The door softly after me, de
termined to closely watch affairs.
came down late to breakfast s and
found Kate' and , her father already
seated. i There were no traces of agi
tation about Kate ; there only seemed
to be in added sweetness and gentle
ness in her manner to her father. I
complained of having passed a bad
night and of feeling badly. kept
my room 'most of the day, but within
its presincts I raged furiously. To
let her escape with that scoundrel
.seemed to me would be to let the last
of my life depart. No. I was de
termined to prevent it at the cost of
my life.
The day wore away in slow, inter
minable length. I did not tell, her
father what I suspected, but prepared
to keep my vigil alone. By lifo'clock
the house was still and silent. I knew
that Kate had gone to her roam, for
I had heard light steps on the stairs
some time before. I lowere&the gas,
opened my door slightly, and prepar
ed to listen to every sound.
The town clock struck eleven,
twelve, and one, before my patience
was rewarded, then the creaking of
\the stairs drew my attention. Look
;mg out'. I saw in the dim light a• dark
robed 3 figure stealing down,
then a clicking of the gate in a mo
,Ment. I followed out' thrdugh the
gate, down to the end of the square,
*here a closely covered carriage was
waiting. I arrived just in time to
hear Walter Revenues voice saying:
" Kate, darling, I • knew you would
come," when I took her by the arm
and said :
" Kate—Mis4 Marston, you should
not do this mad thing. Return with
me to your father."
Then Reveattes voice in
cried : , • .
"How dare you interfere ? I will
teach you better manners!"
Before I could , avoid it, he raised a
pistol and firedi I felt a dull pain in

I had .n dim idea that the room
was full of visitors, but I recognized
no one ; then came another blank.
I hid been badly wounded in the
side, ahnost fatally, but careful nurs
ing and a good constitution triumphed.
After returning to - consciousness the
second time I mended rapidly. I
think whit helped me most was Kate's
sweet face bending over me with a
world of tenderness' in it. I conva
lesced rapidly, and Kate and I soon
resumed OW rides. One morning Mr.
Marston snnimoned me to the library,
and told me that I must appear , as a
witness against Reveanx. This I did
not wish to do, tbr fear that it might
implicate Kate ; but Mr. Marston in
slated, and the trial resulted in Mr.
Iteveaux's being sent to the peniten
tiary for three years.
Kate manifested no feeling; her
love seemed_ to have yielded to the
force of circumstances.
With Mr. Reveaux's sentence my
work was , done I had gained the
end tbr which I had been employed.
I told Mr. Marston this, and thanked
him for his kindnesa.
"Do you really wish to lave ns,
my boy ?"
"No,", I replied ; "but I have porn
plett4 my mission, and now there is
nothing left for me to do. In leaving
you I leave everything; and go forth
into the world more desolate than I
came." ,
"But. - why not stay? I have prop 7

told you of this had you not forced
me to explain its, you gee tie

You have only.escaped one danger
to encounter another."
What a kind, benignant exprisskin
came into the old gentleman's eyes
as he replied :
" If Kate loves you, you can many

_I thieve that you

I lost no time in finding Kate, and
telling her the old, old story; when
I had finished she4ooked np and said,
" Can you - trust 'me now haQe
been so very; very *icked."
Trust her!. no angel 'from heaven
would have seemed: purer, and so ti
told her. Anybody looking into mr
home to-day and- seeing my bonny,

had not belied that trust. •

Pree PAWS:
Let all th4se who are troubled
with weak nerves see to it that they
abstain from all kinds of excitement.
As to strengthening the nerves, it
cannot be done by medicines. Peru
vian bark, wine, minerals; sea-bathS,
etc., do not strengthen. Those which
excite, as spirituous liquors, cold wa-,
ter in the form of bath, showers aid
sponging, increase the weakness of
the nerves by over-excitement. 'Only
that which nourishes our body and
its masses of nerves, only that
strengthen the nerves. Nourishing,
mild, digestible food -is what is re
quired. Milk, on account of its re
semblance to blood, is better than
almost any other article of food, but
unfortunately, it is apt to curdle on
the stomach; this difficulty, might,
however, be obviated by taking a
very sm‘hll quantity at ; a time, and
taking it with white bread.
Naturally, it must be taken quite
Often and with cream, which is the
fat of the milk. The weaker nerves, the
the more 'sleep the patient requires.
Old people should be careful rot to ,
eat too:much-or too solid food at a
time; rather let them eat little, and
eat Often. They must avoid tough,
sinewy, hard - food, and be careful not
fO take too much nourishment, on
account.of the enfeebled condition of
their organs, which are not able to
force much newly-formed blood thro'
the body.
'Many old people eat too much, and
thereby shorten their. lives. To eat
in the evening, or just before going
to bed, is very injurious. And to
take a short nap just after dinner,
lynig on the left,side, is very benefi
cial. Old people, like infants, need
to be kept warm, therefore we rec.
ommend flannel undersdirts, woolen
underclothes, warm bed-covers, and
warm beds ; , well-warmed eating and
sleeping rooms, dry and sunny habi
tations. Warm baths, cleanliness of
the skin in. general, by means of
washing in warm water and rubbing,
are of the utmost importance to keep
up the action of the skin.
Old people shoUld take a warm
bath at least once a Week, flrsl cleans.,
ing the skin with soap, and then
anointing with some fatty substance,
as almond or the like.
_They require
more sleep ; they
,shoUld have spa
cious, airy rooms, well, ventilated,
,and 'moderately warmed, and kept
quiet.' They seould lie with the head
more elevated. than younger people.
As ariPoPlezy is ever to be guarded
against by old, people, ? they should be
carend 'about' tioang cold,inhaling
gold or imPrire air; eating or drinking
to excess, as well as for severe bodily
and mental excitement. , r

An experienced gardner, who grows

wifhouti drainage, Writes to this effect
in an exch ° n„ge: " The question of
drainage Is of whether plants reqnire
it or not ; w all agree on that. lut
the queStionl is in what way the water
passes jfromi the . pot ; whether Nom
the bottom or, Tether from the sies.
We who advocate that the prac ice
of crocking pots is useless, claim : t at
nine-tenths olf the escape of moisture ,
is from the Odes ; they who- practice 1
" bottom drainage," would signifyi by
doing, that :'n their opinion the I es
cape of ate is mainly from the bot
torn. It an • one wishes to decide
this matter fur himself, let him take
half a dozen glazed pots, sucl4 as
water will not percolate through, Jet
him knock ihe.whole bottom out if
he will; an "drain " in the usual
way with potsherds,charcoal or any
thing else he thiks fit. Let him
also take a half dozen of the ordi
nary style oil flower pots. Fill these,
up with the Slime soil as used for the
glazed pots, but without drainage.
Let theisaine sort of plant be grown
in each lot, and under the same con
ditions of temperature and moisture.
Let hinal notthe result three weeks
after the; e_x riment has been made,
and if he des not find that the
glazed Pots,lwith the bottom drain
age, show indications of stagnant
water inia grbater degree than these
in the poroualpots, then all my.obger
rations On this subject have gone for
nothing.' If 11. am correct in this,
does it !not emphatically prove that
the escape of moisture is nearly en
tirely from the sides of the pot and
not from thb Nittotti and hence the
futility ef growing potsherd in the
bottom for drainage. i .
