'Oh, Kate, mamma has just received
a letter from - Uncle John ! He's
.really coming back from Australia
to settle at last. All the heaps- of
money he has invested—yes, that's
the word—invested in some—some
thing,- I don't know what, but will
nearly Jouhle his fortune!' . . -
'Nearly _ double it ! Oh Nellie,'
cried . Kate, dropping her aunt's dress
she was mending, 'only think. We
are his only relational' .1
'What a selfish little thin you
are, Kate!' remarked Ellen Ora, shsw,
throwing herself on a couch ,by her
cousin in her mother's boudoii, which
she had rather impetuously entered
with her good news. i
'How .can one help being selfish
when one is poor ?' laughed Kate
Wakefield.. 'lt. is all very well for
you,iwhose father is alive And well
to-do; but Jack and I have only
ourselves to look to. I have to turn
and' turn my dresses until -1118 quite
ashamed. I stick s new hew -here,
and a new bow there, but I'm not
foolish enough to fancy people think
it's a new dress. Ah me, Nellie ! I
do—do so wish I was, rich V' and she
clasped ber hands On her knee, and
fixed her large gray eyes-at vacancy,
.as if she were filling`the latter with
her visions of wealth ; probably she
was. •
'What a mercenary girl you are,
eoz said' Ellen. 'You don't think
at all about dear uncle John himself
—only his money !'
'Each of us thinks of what most
concerns us, or what we most want!'
retorted. Kate.. may help - poor
Jack, who only gets n.nety pounds a
year I repeat you are rich, or your
father is.'
'He is not, Kate. Ton know it's
as much as mamma.can do to keep
us up to our position in society. But
it will be different now, for dear un-.
ele John says, as he has no relations
save ourselves, he hopes we can man
age to let him live with us. He can
see about our renting a larger house
on his arrival Mamma is gelighted,
and she says he will be, sure to keep
his carriage; while if we try to be
amiable he may keep horses for us
to ride. Only imagine! Will it not
be. grand? ,How the people will won
der and. envy.'
'What a lot of suitors you'll have,
Nellie! Who knows but that Sir
Hugh Stafford, when he comes—as ,
as they, say he will, next month—to
reside for the -winter at Beecholm,
may be One of them !'
A bright flush rose to the cousin's
cheek, though she exclaimed, 'What
nonsense. Kate!' for the fact was,
Ellen Grashaw was very pretty, and
such a onion had. not only entered
her head; but also her mother's—one
of those worldly-minded women wi.o
render their lives wretched by a con
stant fight to keep their heads higher
than their neighbors, and to make
five hundred a year pass for a thou
sand. Mrs. Orashaw, indeed, was
already secretly hue) , in devising
means for new dresses to make Ellen
look her best, and to give one or two ,
parties, ostensibly in the Baronet's
honor—really to 'throw the young
people together.' • -
'Papa; proceeded Nellie, 'used to
call uncle John "the fool of the fam
ily"—.a mad speculator. I only wish,
in that case, papa had changed places
with him, , •
'When*ill he be here, Nell? Does
he say 1'
'He starts the second mail after hilt
letter, therefore he will be here in a
fortnight. Thereto mamma calling 1'
she added, springing up.
'I hope , It's not to dress yet; for. I
have not done these bows yet,' re
marked Kate, renewing her stitching.
Mr. Orashaw was s tolerably well
tollo merchant, who. would have a
safer balanCe at his binker'aluid not
his inclinations in regard to 'appear
ances tended in the tame direction
as his ;wife's. What an 'old man of
the sea' to some persons aria those
wordseWhat will Mrs. Grundy say?'
Thty excused themselves by saying
it was for their children's benefit
Horace had to make a position -in
the world, and Nell to be settled. j
The two other members, of . the,
familyy were Kate mid her brother
Jack (employed in a bank). :When
they; had been left. orphaus MM. Gra

did, too, that society, who vfm ignor"
ant ; of any payuient being made,
`spoke highly of their kindness to
their poor relations. •
Their sole other relation was 'uncle
John-4 fatless, sanguine spirit,
who had been always going rto make
a fortune, and who = had at last, •in
Australia, done - so. Ho had- gone
there when Nell and Kate were chil
dren, so all they knew of 'him' was
that he was very kind, and was ever
sending pleasant letters arid hand
somapresents to his little-nieces and
nephews. When 'Nell danced in ber
joy from the moul t Kate at work on
her aunt's dress, thought of these
presents, and his to he feared men

coming home in a very inercenary

ponders. 4 At any rate, if he be en
rich, he will hardly let his sis er's
children remain so poor. If he does
not do something 'for Jack, I—l

Then, her eye resting on a darn in
her dress, her mind revelled in the
better toilets she might possiblY have
when uncle John came home. '
treele John ! Before' two days
were over everybody in Monkbonrne
ktiew him, otitis immense wealth,
and how he was tolive with the Gra.
4 1shaws, who were bin-only relations.
Mr. Grashaw dtopped into the estate
agent's -to inquire casually what
mansions or' small estates were to let
in the neighborhood. Horace talked
of uncle John at his club until the
members were „sick of uncle John.
Mrs. Grashaw and the girls made
visits and rece.ved them on purpose
to let Monkbourne society know all
about him.
. 'Very stuck up,. proud people those
Orashaws I' remarked Mrs. Sti,bbin
'Always - were. 'Now they will be
intolerable!' rejoined the doctor's
wife., 'Ari to that. Kate Wakefield,
she takes no pains to i hide her 'finer
cenariness I' . •
'Well, there's an 'ex cuse for her,
My dear. It can't be 'pleasant, I'm
sure'—with a heatnnss.—no be de.
pendent upon Mrs. Grashaw's chari•
ty !'
'The train will be ..tluf 1:30 no
doubt,*that he'll.arrive by,' remarked
Mr. Grashaw on the day of uncle
John's coming; as he contemplated
the recherche lunchnon'prepared. I 'l
hope. my love, there is nothing to
make a hitch in his welcome?'
It was a moment of grew. excite
ment. Nellie flitted everywhere;
Horace - lounged- about, assuming in
difference; • Sate sat at the diawing
room window, regretting her 'brigh
bonnie Jack, who was so overworked
be t!ould not get a holiday. Sudden
ly, as .a cab stopped at the door, she
sprang up and rang to the rest.-
'He has come! Uncle John has
come!' she exclaimed. • I,
'Gracious 1 Why.- hu must have
got .up at dawn !' ejaculated Mrs
Grashaw. 'Where are Nell and Hor
ace ?'
A fluttering bevy they proceeded
into the hall" to receive the lucky
speculator... The page had already
thrown wide the door, and coming
up the step they saw a tall, thin,
gray-haired man, with stooped shoul
ders and a sad, careworn visage.
'Welcome to England Welcome
home, John !' cried the. merchant,
wringing hiS hands. 'Dear me, how'
delighted I am ! I congratulate you,
The : vreicoraes and 'congratulations
were echoed all around. They cies
tered abdrit him like bees round
honey. Horace took his hat, Krite
his walking-stick.
'Ab, George !' exclaimed • uncle
John.rn a feeble voice, as he slightly
waved his hands, 'let me sit down .
somewhere. I have mutlfto tell you.
'Horace, fetch the wine; your un
cle is fatigued after his journey. Nu;
we will go into the dining-room at
once,' remarked - Mrs. Grashaw
'Much to tell us t' 'laughed her
husband. '1 should think so, Jcbn,
after your long absence.'
They had all got into the dining
room': now. The softest chair was
pushed forward , by Horace ; Bate
gave a shake to the cushions ; Ellen
brought a foot-stool. Uncle John
dropped down wearily.
-- 4 06, George I' be exclaimed, almost
piteously, 'how can I tell you—how
a hundred timei I have wished that
I had never written you that letter—
much has happened since then. -I
am'—the gray headliropped on the
withered .hands—{ruined
Had the listeners suddenly been
confronted by the face of Medusa,
they could not have been more aghast
—more silent. The) were horrifiel
—paralyzed. The first thought - of
Mr. Grashaw, indeed of all, was that
they had been grossly •.
'What do you mean;. John?' de
manded the . merchant
'That the speculation in which I
foolishly invested my all, George,
was but a bubble', It burst a week
before I 'started for home. It has
me I I wonder if he thinks
this is his home

chanti.7-Vircumstances alter cages.'
'Whatever will Monibourne eay-Y'•
thought the wife. 'We shall be a
perfect laughing Stock. TO have a
pauper instead of a millionaire on
our hands •
Rom* and Nano looked at each
other helpleislv.
Kate felt inclined to cry. Then
she filled a glass witifwine and hand•
edit to Uncle John. 'How very al=
°ions that girl is!' thought ber_aunt.
'I always said yea were the idiot
of the family,' John,' remarked the
merchant, huffishly. 'There; we may,
I suppose, have luncheon ! then you
can tell us about it.'
inquired Jack Wakefield,
eagerly, on Kate waylaying him as
he was creeping upstairs -to change
his coat after returning ;rem the•of•

And Jack, Ao longer thinking of
his officecont, walked into the' draw

old man, temaxked, heartily.:
'Welcome hone, uncle John I Kate'
has told me all. I'm sorry, 'pm my

DESPETIANDUM,, you - - know --better
luck next time.' . •
'Heaven bless you, my dear boy—
you rejoined uncle John,
gratefully; tornlreagybe was awak
ening to his position. And such a
pleased, radiant expression came
over his features, that,, like a flash,
an idea sprang up in 'Mrs. fliashaw's
hend.that uncle John was 'pretending
poverty to test their affection.,-
But her husband soon negatived
that There was no .pretence; but
hard, bona fide, implacable ruin.
Monkbourne did laugh - and did
sneer. That might have been some
excuse for the Grashaws.; • but before
a fortnight was over.. , uncle John
found himself so much in the way
that, hurt, pained, he announced his
intention of leaving, and no one
asked him loramain.
• That evening, however; Jack came
into his room on the third floor with
Sate, and the two made a proposi
tion. To let uncle John in his great
trouble go and live alone was' more
than terrible to these silly young
people; it was impossible. -- Would
uncle John like them to put all their
tiny incomes together, arid take a
little cot Age just onside the town
and live in it ?- Kate would be the
most economical of housekeepers.
'Unele John sat aghast.
'And you would do this for me,
my, children ?' be exclaimed. 'You
would give up your fine living and the
fine guests here at. George's to—to—'

So it was settled. The Grashaws
were at first,ind'gnalt,'but later re:

break with their relations. especially
with,those ungrateful Wakefields.
But there they were wrong. Grat
itude had been the cause. All the
real. gifts and benefits Jack and Kate
had received•frem any one had been
from uncle John, who had never
asked or wanted a return.
In a fortnight the cottage Jack

merrily. - -
The cottage wan isituated at the

Kate, seated in the little parlor at

Her cogitations were arrested .by

Kate had been overwhelmed upon
hearing who was uncle John's friend.
Now she felt. ready to sink on the
floor at the -invitation _given; cape

'That is ' lie added, turning to' her,

What was that in . his voice, his
manner, that - put Kate at once at her
ease, and made her : quite sincere in
sayingi she would be delighted ?
Whatever it was, she never , felt less
nerv.ons in preparing tie evening
meal, and never did it go off better.
The conversation never nagged, and
the'. Baronet seemed as he had
known them for years. Then Jack
came in, and the hours ilipped away,
until nearly ten o'clock; when Sir
Hugh took - his leave, asking Jack to
walk part . - of the way with him to
smoke a cigar, 2
When •Jaek returned be was radi

he had been stuiying, and how he
had 'passed examinations with eclat,
and had promised ,to procure him a

'Oh, dear,' thoUght Kate, smiling,
as she retired to rest. 'What would
aunt Grashaw say ?'.
What would she, and what did she,
and ,what did all lionkbourne say,
when it was known how constant' a
guest Sir Hugh Stafford was atthe
cottage ? Of course it was as apa
troll i The Baronet was generous
and pitied John—wanted to make
him /a return for that Australian af
fair.' But Kate,- though she called
herself silly, foolish, vain, could, not
help fancying that there was another
reason for Sir. Hugh's coming t. and
she was right. -One evening, when
the Baronet had had them to dine at
Beeeholm, and she had stepped 'on to
the terrace, waiting for the gentle
men to come from the - dining-room,
he joined heralone. He was a man

Good Writers Who Write Badly.

Admirers of Charles A. Dana would
hardly imagine that his fine editorials
are written in a small neat Land,
and with a pen dipped in violet ink
instead of gall. William Cullen Bry
ant wrote.legibly ih an old,fashioned
style, though rather nervously to
ward the last. That A. Oakey Hall
could write well, even under trying
circumstances, appears. from a polite
note, of his, dated about a week be

Whittier and Holmes rival him in

Address of the Republican Stite
To the Republic . ne of Penns./koala:
The Republican State Comml tee
thui early announces the opening of
its headquarters, and rusks the prompt
co-operation of.all active Republi.
cans, to the en that the details of
what must prove a great canvass may
receive the most careful attention.
The Harrisburg. Convention has
submitted to the suffrages of the
people a great and a glorious
platform. The ' ticket embodies a
group - of.-names which for ability,
fitness and representative(' 'character,
it is impossible to excel. General
Beaver is not ouly the type of- our
soldiery—of that host which counted
in its ranks nearly a quarter of a
million of . Pennsylvanians when the
Union of the States was imperilled—
but .=his deeds and sufferings for the
cause place him in the front rank Of
the heroes of that war. As Bepnli-
Beans we vowed in its darker hours
that political ingratitude should never
be shown to any of these heroes, 'all
other things being equal." In this
instance all other things are more
than equalled ; they are excelled in
so far that our maimed soldier can
didate for Governor etabodies all the
higher qualities'of the statesman, the
orator and the christian. , Senator
Davies for Lieutenant-Governor rep
resents the free, unshackled talent of
the section which gave us a Wilmot
and a Grow. Wm. Henry Rawle, for
the Supreme Court, is the best pro ,
duct of Philadelphia's brilliant bar,
and in the world of legal letters bears
a fame so bright that our continent
cannot bind ,it. John M. Greer, for
Secretary of Internal Affaird, is as
strong in politics as in physique, and
throughout a distinguished careerrin
the State Senate has been recognized
as the champion of the men who have
developed our rivers of oil and made
the world their channel. Thou:las
M. Marshall, the most independent of
all independent thiatters in our West,
is the best example our State affords
of the citizen whose' qualifications
have compelled the office to hunt the
man. He will aid in keeping intact
what in the nature of things must be
a very narrow Republican margin in
the lower House of Congress.
The ticket thus fairly and fully
represents ` every living element of
Republicanism. The platform is more
pronounced than any ever before
adopted in the State—pronounced in
seeking every legitimate . political ad
vance touching improvement of
methods and the earliest possible
triumph of principles.
Pennsylvania is now freer in her
forms of Repuhlican primary action
than' any other State in the Union
She inaugurated district representa
tion in National Conventions, and
now more fully enforces thid policy
thanany of her sister - States. The
present platfcirm and the rules em
bodied therein secure to primary
action for State Convention every
tangible claim to increased liberty,
and these are . political reforms of
more rapid growth than any known
to our history. -
As a rule good things in polities_
which come to stay, cone step by
step, the pace increasing only as all
become more and more ready. to re
ceive The progreoa of
lican party forcib'y attests a fact
which has grown into a maxim: — In
its infancy the, party could but an
nounce its opposition to the further
extensian cf slavery. Extension-once
forbidden, its wisest champion—the
martyred Lincoln—patiently strug
gled in the earlier years of his first
administration for .compensated '
emancipation. His appeals were re
jected, by ; the , partied interested.
War's grim necessity emancipated,
;and then ,a great struggle followed
for equality before the war—but an
other step, and one which looks timid
now yet which was bol I enough then.
Civil rights accomnlished,,manhood
suffrage came . through even more
Painful stages. To have demanded
the greater boon from the beginning
—the ' final step which included and
outreached all the others—would have
led to a fatal sap. The men who
proved their prowess in these strug
gles were those who had the wisdom
to guide with care and good cheer,
.and so to stand with the people as
not to lose their opportunities for in
creasing usefulness. Of such were
Lincoln, Stevens, Garfield. .
And, now the Republican party of
our State, having aided_in - securing
human rights through legal fora's, in
its recent Convention wisely directed
its attention to the growth of liberty
in primary action. In Republican
Government it is frequently wise in
citizens to imitate in their forms of
voluntary political action those laid
down by the law, for in this way all
the peobh. become familiar with the
law, and its workings ; theexceptions
point to times and occasions when it
is 'desirable to change the law, and
to prepare sentiment forthat change.
The constitutional law of Pennsyl
vania fixes the number of Senators
and Representatives at 251, a maxi
mum which tie platform preserves
in, the selection of delegates to fu
ture State Conventions, but it at the
same time wisely protects the pri
mary right of each Repuolican voter
in the declaration that delegates shall
_selected as Senators and Repre
sentatives are selected. This is popu
lar and rewsentatiie suffrage car
ried ,into primary action, giving to
local scivereignty the -say whether it
shall be popular or representative.
Either is a great advance, and in the
advance the party or - the State had

Look carefully at the platform,

but culminating steps to every rem
