That is what mamma told me today,
When I sighed and forgot one should always be

And a brow that is royal enough for a crows

A TALK ABOUT "MOTHS."
Olivia put down " Motihs " on the
table as she rose to greet her friends.
`• Sorry to interrupt your reading,"
said Angeline: "What is the book

" Ouida's last novel, Moths.' "
"Then you read Ouida with an

"1 will not take upon myself to

smilingly, who is a young widow.
" Let me tell you something of the
story. A pretty, frivolous English
girl, the seventh daughter of r a poor
peer; at seventeen, marries her cousin,.
a young clergyman. In two years he
dies, leaving her poor, with a girl
baby. To her light nature , life with
out amusement is martyrdom, duty a
bore. She is very wearied with-her
life in the quiet country parsonage,
and leaving her baby in care of her
mother-in-law, the old duchess, she
goes to France, where in the gayeties
of fashionable society she soon for
gets-her weariness and sorrow, and
in a year marries a rich man who is
absorbed iii ' business and gives her
plenty of liberty and' money. To
have fine clothes, constant amusement
and much admiration, is all she de
sires. Meanwhile her child: is brought
up by the stern old. (lochess in her
English home on the' Northumbrian
seashore, mid is imbued with ideas of
duty, t obedience and sincerity, which
the author term "old-fashioned."
She roams at will along the breezy
ithores and under the old forest treea;
- It'er mental .training is as wholesome
and invigorating, and she grows, up
strong and healthy in 'body and mind
Her mother, to vent her dislike of
mother-in-law, quarrels about being
deprived of her child. The duchess,
losing patience, takes her at her word,
and sends the gill to her mother at a
watering place on the French coast.
Here a goodly portion of Parisian
society is amusing itself and into the

frivolity, the girl, scarcely sixteen,

dish home, fresh and fair as the
!Horning, pure as the deer, earnest,

mother is the emptiest bubble in the
whole'sea of froth around her. It hi
the story of this girl, Vera, that is
told—her unhappy marriage, by
which she is made a sacrifice to her
mother's duplicity and wickedness—
her sufferings, her martyr-like en
durance in loyalty to what she deems
to be right and her duty.
` I have read several of Oujda's.

" She is most noble, and - Well em

desCription of her early morning
walk along the shore and meeting
with the great singer, Correze, is one
of the 'most beautiful word pictures I
have read in all modern fiction. Let
me read you a portion."
Olivia read, and Angeline listened
with rapt intentness. .
" Oujda is a consummate artist - ,"
exclaimed Anna, as she ceased read
ing. Angeline's eves glistened;
said : '-' How beautiful that is! Why

Olivia hesitated. "There are had.

but much more vulgar and coarse.
Her portraiture is unequalind faulty.
A smart American who, when she
had crossed the Atlantic, caught up
the ways and words, and habits and
graces of the great world, and adapt

versatile cleverness," would not be
liable to lapse into forgetfulness and
use such words as " Wal " and
"disremember," when talking. with
her high-born acquaintances: Ouida
bar, however, the justice not to say
she is representative; she writes:
"In New York she and hers were
deemed 'shoddy,'---the very shod
diest of shoddy—and were coldly
looked on and left uninvited."
" Why depict such a class at all, if
not representative ?" asked Angeline,
~thoughts dwelt on Anna's
last remark. "Why should not Vera's
companions be suited to her ? The
story would then lose its repulsive
ness and be far more edifying."
"Anna has said that Ouida -is a
true artist," replied Olivia. "There
would be no contrast; in art, as in
nature, when there is a great light
there must be somewhat . deep
"I agree with Angeline," remark
ed Anna, "that the depiction of vice
is repulsive, but without it would the
power of the story in teaching its
lesson be - as' great? • Would it be
really,.in that sense as edifying ?"
" You mean," said Olivia, musing

modern socjety, Ouida writes of

" Precisely," rejoined Anna, "I
hold that fiction in which vice, if al

but partially revealed, like a poison
ous asp lurking'ainid fruits and flow
ers, has a more baleful influence than
that in which it 'is unveiled, and-its
hideous features closely shown."
" But why know anything about it
at all?" queried Angeline, "when
there is so much that is wholly pure
and good that we ought to know "
" Knowledge is protection," re
plied Anna. " She who walks warily,
knowing that pitfalls may be along
her path; is 'in less danger than she
who walks unwittingly."
"Ignorance is not necessary to in

combine the two," said Olivia, with

Who Struck Billy Patterson
Many persons have heard the ques
tion, "Who struck Billy Patterson ?"
without knowing the origin of it. I
propose to enlighten their a little on
the subject. William Patterson was
a very wealthy tradesman or mer
chant of Baltimore, in the State of
Maryland. In the, early days of
Franklin county he bought up a
great many tracts of land in the
county, and spent a good portion of
his time in looking after his interests
there. Ile was said to be as strong
as a bear-and as bravo as a lion, but
like all bra men he was a lover of
peace, and -indeed, a good, pious man.
NevertheleSs, his wrath could be ex
cited to a fighting Fitch. On one oc
casion he attended a- public gather
ing in the lower part of Franklin
county, at some district court ground.
During the day two opposing bullies
and their friends raised a row, and
general figljt was the consequence.
At the beginning of the -agray, and
before the fighting began, Billy Pat
terson ran into the crimil to persuade
them not to fight, but to make peace
and be friends. But his efforts for
peace were unavailing, and while
making theM some one of the crowd
struck Billy Patterson a severe blow
from behind. Billy at once became
fighting mad, and cried out at the
top of his voice, " who struck Billy
Patterson ?" No one 'could or would
tell Idm who was the guilty party . .
He then proposed to give any man
$lOO who would tell hiM "who struck
Billy Patterson." From slou-he rose
t o $1,0(00, but that would not induce
-any man to tell him "who struck
Billy Patterson." And years after
ward, in his will, he related the above
facts, and • bequeathed, $l,OOO to be
paid by his executors to the man who
would tell who struck Billy Patter
son." His will is recorded in the
Oidinary's office at Carnesville,
Franklin county, Ga., and any one
curious about- the matter can there
find it and verify the preceding state-
Thents.-Froni the Carta:rule ((:a.)
As eminent divine from Now England,
travelling in Texas for his health, im
paired by arduous clerical duties, - upon
arriving at one of the towns went.in
search of the barber's shop for repairs
arid- improvements. On entering an es
tablishment of this kind he observed a
big double-barreled -gun leaning against
the wall. Having a constitutional awe of
fire-arins he hastily asked the ' barber if
the gun was loaded. A half-shaved
native,'who s occupied • the chair, turned
around in hid` latter-beaten face and ex
claimed : "'Stranger ! of you're, in au
