Who could imagine that she could be so artful?' said Mrs. Fulton, contemptuously; and society, judging from its own standard, quite co incided in her opinion. • He was double her age. Of course she had married him for money. Was it so? Lily Rivers herself could scarcely answer the question. She was very friendless, very desolate; it was but dreary work, acting as governess to Mrs. Fulton's unruly children, and bearing the airs of that great lady herself. Mark Grant's tender heart melted with infinite compassion at the sight of the fragile young creature, bearing her cheerless life so uncomplainingly, striving so bravely to fulfil her duties. An intense desire to shield and protect her came over him; then, to his own amazement, Mark Grant, who, for nearly two score years, had re sisted all matrimonial traps, found that he had fallen hopelessly in love with his sister's pretty governess. When Mr.Gmut,the rich banker,asked Lily to be his wife, she was almost over powered by the unexpected honor; his vows were the first words of affection she had listened to for many years. It was so delightful to have some one to cling to —to know that she was not utterly friend less. She never asked herself if she loved this man as a wife should love her hus band, she esteemed him above all other men; he loved her, he said; she could render his home a heaven upon earth.— .What more was wanting to complete her happiness? So Lily reigned like a queen in Mark Grant's stately mansion at Clapham, and felt a vived delight in the luxury and splendor with which'her husband loved to surround her. Mark never seemed tired of ministering to his young wife's pleas ure. A year passed thus, then Gerald Lacy appeared Upon the scene. He was Mark's cousin- handsome, wealthy, and talented; he was one of society's idols, had some what tired of its attractions; and now, after some years of foreign travel, he had returned to his native land. We have said he was rich and idle; how could he employ the time better than by devoting it to his cousin's lovely wife? Such pas time was necessary to Gerald's excitement loving nature. He was not a bad man, only a thoughtless trifler, and he assured himself he meant no harm. Mark did not understand the value of the treasure he possessed. Lily was his cousin; it would be only a charity to en liven her life !" Thus ho reasoned. Accordingly, Mr. Lacy set himself to work to render himself agreeable. Lily was not very difficult to please; she re ceived all his -attentions graciously, for Gerald was a new experience to the girl; his gay manner captivated her simple fancy; he was a hero in her sight; he call ed her his friend: Lily imagined that never before had frietidship assumed so fair a A FAMILY NEWSPAPER--DEVOTED TO LITERATURE, LOCAL AND GENERAL.NEWS.

During the summer days, Gerald Lacy was careless no longer; his thoughtlessness • riftedintcrsivr,antvitho _ • , he yielded himself up to the fierce passion which consumed him. He declared to himself that he could not live without her. He felt no remorse for the dishoner he would bring upon his _ kinsman's name, no pity for the woman he would fain dis grace; absorbed in his selfish passion, he was deaf to the voice of conscience. One day, Mrs. Grant's maid delivered to her mistress a note which excited -- strange—emotions — irr - that—ladr. - --It—was= from Gerald, declaring his love, and en treating her to meet him in the arbor that evening. As she read, Lily's face was crimsoned by a deep flush of shame; she saw the terrible abyss which yawned be: neath her. ' and, kneeling down, she prayed as one in deadly peril might pray, that she might be enabled to resist temptation. She_had almost loved_him r -she—acknowl- -, edged to herself; but now, for Mark's onor, she must be strong.

All Gerald's fine-gentleman composure forsook him; he would thin have kissed the wet, flushed cheeks, but dared not. 'Don't cry, darling,' he said, piteously, would give my life to save you from a moment's pain. I love you so dearly, Lily !' `And I love you as a brother!' she sobbed. I trusted you so entirely; and now you ask me to leave Mark—to dig. honor him!' .'He cannot love you as I love you,' he pleaded. 'He cares more for his business than he ever cared for you. You never loved him. Oh, Lily, dearest, listen to me 1' 'He does love me!' she cried, passion ately. was poor and friendless; he shared his abundance* with me. You know how noble he is. You would drag me to shame. I love him, Gerald—l never knew how dearly until last night.' `Then there is no hope for me!' said Gerald, white to the lips. 'There is every hope for you. There would, indeed, be no hope for you were I mad enough to listen to you. Could you bear to have the woman you loved point ed at by the finger of scorn. I am a proud woman, Gerald; if you could bear it, I could not. The time will come when you will bless me that I was firm. You have too noble a nature to be ruined by any woman. I shall pray for you night and day. But you must go; you cannot stay under• Mark's roof after what has passed.' 'Have you no pity? Won't you let me stay where I can sometimes see you?' 'No,' she answered; 'there would be danger for both of us- -a danger that, for my husband's sake, I dare not incur.' Gerald stood for a moment, his hand some young face all wan and haggard in the gray evening light. He had loved this woman better than he bad ever thought to love mortal being; it seemed like the agony of death to leave her thus. He gave one hat long look at the fair, child like face, the wistful, brown eyes, the tan gled golden curls :floating around her head, and then turned to go. 'Won't you say good-bye to me, Ger ald?' Then he raised2the slender white hand to his lips. `God help me, for I am very miserable! Good-bye, Lily I' he said hoarsely. A moment more, and he was gone.— Then Lily hid her face in the damp grass, and wept as though her heart were break ing. Her ideal dream of friendship had fled; only stern duty remained. Mark Grant , loudly condemned the sudden caprice which had caused his cousin to start for Paris just as they im agined he intended to settle down in his own country; but Lily sdoke no word of blame. Long after, when Lily had conquered all feeling of tenderness for Gerald Lacy; when she could look iu her husbaud's eyes, and tell him she loved him with all a true wife's devotion; when a baby L:ly lay pillowed upon her breast, then Lily told her husband the reason of Gerald's de parture, to that gentleman's intense as tonishment. A fair wife now sits by Gerald's aide; happy children cluster round his hearth stone. Ile looks back upon his love for his cousin's wife as a boyish folly;' but as his highest ideal of perfect womanhood— perfect in gentleness and purity—he rev erences Lily Grant. Cowards dio many times before their deaths; the valiant never taste of death but once. —Love rules his kludom without a swold. Some are very busy, yet do nothing. Rushing to Death.

Perhaps her leap might have ended_successfully ;_perhap life or limb endangered ; but I frustrate• the rash attempt and edified her with a moral lecture concerning the suicide, while we waited tor the next train. I lose twentf or even half an hour, than to risk a life ; yet we everywhere read of people who run these fearly risks too often un successfully. 'Very recently a distinguish ed graduate of a Virginia universit wanted to deposit a letter iu the post-offs - on the other side of the railroad track. - locomotive was approaching ; he though he could cross before the ponderous engin • • • • .•g : *scalculat dth speee - . • snot er moment lel — vasais less mass.

She saw a crowd of men approach the gate, open it, and come up the path with her dead hus band. He did alight from the cars with safety and step upon the platform before the station. There was a train in the op. osite 'direction ; he thought he had plenty of time to cross in front of it,_and_did_ cross o ne inch ; the wheel struck the heel of his boot, wheeled him around under the cars, and all was over ; one minute longer and he could have crossed with the locomotive ahead of him. Limbs are broken, lives are lost every year in any large city, by attempting to cross in front of moving horses or vehfb les. And all this foolhardy daring that a few moments of time may be saved. By the Wayside. Two aged men entered a streetcar a few days ago, in a neighboring city. One of them who was paralyzed. said, in re ply to a question of the other as to his welfare : "I have a very large interest in the next world." When asked, "how are you off for this world ?" he replied pleas antly that he bad enough to meet his wants while he lived,aud then again add ed, "but I have a very large interest in the next world." The conversation• at tracted the attention of other passengers, and those words kept wringing in his ears all the rest of the day. He could not get rid of the deep impression made by the singular earnestness and happiness of the old disciple. Surely this is the beauty of old age.— Its joys and blessedness; the calm assur ance of a portion beyond - this life in "the inheritance of the saints in light." Little, too, did the veteran think of the power of his reiterated sentence. upon the hearts of his fellow-travellers,who did not even know his name. Yet these wayside utterances of warm-hearted Christians are often the most eloquent lay-preachieg,both to unconverted people and to believers who happen to overhear them. Our un conscious influences are frequently the best or the worst that we exert. But the best of all is when the pilgrim lire draws near its close, and when the staff and sandals are soon to be laid aside to feel that our "best and largest interests are in the next world." The treasure grows at more than com pound interest Its value increases as the vision of it widens like the firmament.— The riches cannot "take to themselves wings and fly away." It is a life interest for eternity, and faith only asserts its di vine prerogative, "while we look not at the things which are seen,but at the things which are not seen, for the things that are seen are temporal, but the things that are not seen are eternal." THE CHRISTIAN'S Ho:vs.—We make our best use of this world when we regard it as the' basis from whiCh to survey the other. Withcut heaven, poetry could have no existence. The key-note of the poetic is future perfection, and the heaven of the Christian is the highest perfection. I know of no better illustratioti of these truths than a simple expression which fell from the lips of a godly friend of mine. Through- perseverance and industry, he had been able to build himself a house. But his chief boast was, that from his fire side he could sre his father's house on the distant hill. 'No matter the weather,' said he, `whether, winter or summer.spring or autuirinno matter the sky. whether cloudless or stormy—when I sit by my east window, father's roof and chimney tops, the gleam of his lamp at night, are always visible to my sight.' His words contain the philosophy of life, and enclose, as in a nutshell, the principles of holy living. Enviable—yea, thrice enviable —is the man who can pierce the clouds of social darkness which surround our earth ly homes, and see his Father's house, with its many mansions, in the distant heaven. Out in Wisconsin a horse kicked and I killed a book agent, wherepon the citizens I made a d o n a tion party for the hore, and he now has oats enough to last him a full horse lifetime. 1 OFTEN WONDER WRY 'TIS SO. - FATHER-EY-A-K.7 Some find work wher • n. so the weary world goes on; I sometimes wonder which is best— The answer comes when life is gone.

Old Love Rekindled. member of Congress from-Michigan-witty Mrs. Sibley, widow of Major Sibley, States army. She was Miss Humph ries, daughter of Judge Humphries,of the Supreme Court of the State of Ohio, and twenty-seven years ago was affianced to Mr. Conger , then a handsome, blooming youth. Miss Humphries was pretty, a belle and a flirt. Her flirting propensi ties did not_please_Mr.-Conger T -aud - he - re- - monstrated with her. Being a high-spir ited girl,she finally broke the engagement, telling him she would never marry him. He left the State. She married and . he married. Major Sibley lived twelve years. There were no children and at his death she went abroad. Mrs. Conger lived a few years, and left three children. In October, weary of European life, Mrs. Sibley determined to return to her home in Cincinnati. Arriving in New York, it occurred to her to come to Washington for a few weeks. Oh, woman, how mys terious are thy ways ! One day, time hanging wearily on her hands, she wan dered to (?) Congress; of course, never dreaming that in this august body sat her affinity ! An hour passed ; the debates were prosy and tedious. So, gathering her wraps about her, she prepared to leave the gallery, when there was a tap on her shoulder. Turning, who did she behold but the lover of her youth ! After commonplace greetings in an ag itated voice,she made the inquiry, "I sup pose your family are with you ?" "Did you not know that my wife was dead ?" With tragic start,she averred she did not. They chatted some time, and on leaving she said, "I am at the Arlington,will you come and see me ?" Hesitation on his part, blushes on hers, and then in a low voice, replied Conger, "I will come if you take back what you said to me twenty five years ago." "I will," she answered, and she willed. The engagement was very brief, and the happy twain were united.—Ginn. 09M. THE GENTLE LlFE.—This is the beau tiful heritage of the well-born man and the gentle woman. They may be poor or rich to-day, they may be living a life of leisure or toiling for their bread—all the same they carry with them the grace, the care, the gentleness, the consideration, the knowledge which we call intuition or instinct, which comes from generations of culture and a thousand qualities of mind and heart which win social recognition and bring happiness to the possessor. The accumulation of more money as an inheritance for children is often worse than nothing in their hands ; it deprives them of all incentive to personal effort and un frequently proves the means by which they ride fast to destruction. Money is worse than nothing if the lives of the past and associations of the present have not taught us how to put it to its noblest uses. , But the order, the training, the exper ience of a life are invaluable. They form, with education, a key that unlocks the re cesses of the world, and becomes a power that no loss in stocks or bonds or houses or lands can deprive the fortunate posses sor of. They make him the equal of the best, and therefore at ease with all men ANOTHER SNAKE STORY.—Says the New York Ttibunc : In Murraysville, Cooke county, Teun. Mrs. Kennedy has for some years suffered great pains. and `felt something running up and down her stomach.' So at last, after some hospital treatment, she sent for Perriam Gyles, M. D. This physician having summoned two of his brethren, an operation was under taken. Surgical particulars are unneces sary. The result was that two liviug rat tlesnakes, the one thirty-six, the other thirty-two inches long, were removed from the woman, and she is now perfectly well, while the snakes, in a stuffed state, adorn the museum of Col. John Stephens. Mrs. Kennedy says that several years ago 'she swallowed two small, soft, white eggs,' which she found in a field,supposing them to be partridge eggs.' The gentle reader may ask if we believe this story, To this we answer that we do not believe one word of it. We reject the eggs and the nnrikrma and the roitlem and Kenned y altogether, and even of the remainder of the narrative we have certain doubts. Life's Lesson. "Where .your, treasure is, there will your heart be also." While,' year after year, the beautiful, .•e-true-and-the-yoodrare-t , • - ranks of life, it is a joy to know that the spirit world is made richer through the poverty of this. In early life, surrounded by friends whose voices greet us on every side, and whose smiles are ever ready to welcome, us, - death, and the spirit worlden7F ar•' away—sometimes almost as thotigh they I were not. Life is not real ;we tread its , pathway with pleasure and delight, but ,as-ve-advance-iu-our-journeyras-voice-af ter voice is hushed in death, and form af ter form which we have loved has passed from' our sight,—as the pleasures of this world recede from our view, and we are left alone to tread the down of life,—our minds instinctively turn from the seen to the unseen and spiritual. For with every friend that has passed away some joy has faded,—and every friend that has gone tá the spirit world, has stranded the riv r-ofileath-with-another-chord-that-will- make our passage over more easy. One by one passes over until we come to think - more - of - Ileaven - than - 01 - earth. Know ing that our loved ones are there,wesome times feel that a part of ourselVes is with them, for where our treasure is, there will our heart be also. • We seem to follow our friends beyond the veil at times and as one writer beau- tifully expressed it, "They are not wholly - gone - frotn - us - rwe - see-across-the-river of death in the blue distance, the smoke of their- • d • " leariiVo - tliiiik — elf - them as not - liW - hut — ours—not — dead, only living iu the spirit world, whither we shall soon follow ; and thinking of them thus takes from our bereavement half its sting. Then weep not, mother, bemuse thy child is ta ken; a kind Father would wean thy heart from earth. Weep not, child; because thy mother is gone; thou may'st love her still, and she now perchance is watching thee from the spirit world, and is a min istering angel to guide thy feet to that better land.—The Wayside. Failures in Business. The man who never fails in business can not possibly know whether he has any "grit" in him, or is worth a button. It is the man who fails, then rises, who is real ly great in his way. Peter Cooper failed in makieg hats,fail ed as a cabine i maker, locomotive builder, and a grocer, and as often as he failed, he "tried and 'tried again," until he could stand upon his feet alone, then crowned his victory by giving a million dollars to help the poor boys in times to come. Horace Greeley tried three or four lines of business before he founded the Tribune, and made it worth a million dollars. Patrick Henry failed at everything he undertook, until he made himself the orna ment of his nation. The founder of the New York Hetald kept on fitiling and sinking money for ten years, and then made it one of the most profitable newspapers on earth. Stephen A. Douglas made dinner tables, and bedsteads, and bureaus, many a long year before he made himself a "giant" on the floor of Congress. Abraham Lincoln failed to make both ends meet by chopping, wood, failed to earn his salt in the galley'slave life of a Mississsippi flat boatman; he had not oven wit enough to run a grocery, and yet made himself the grandest character of the nineteenth century. . Geu. Grant failed in everything except smoking cigars, he learned to tan . hides, but could not sell leather enough to pur chase a pair of breeches. A dozen years ago "he brought up" on top of a wood pile," teaming it" for forty dollars a month and yet he is at the head of a great nation. The lesson for every young man is this : As long as you have the health, and have the power to do, go ahead; if you fail at one thing try another, and a third—a dozen even. Look at the spider; nineteen times it tried to throw out its web to its place of attachment, and on the twentieth suc ceeded. The young man who has the gift of continuance is the one whose foot will be ablest to breast the angry waters of human discouragement. WHY EARS SHOULD NOT BE BOXED. —ln "Physiology for Practical Use" (D. Appleton & Co.) we find the following: There are several things very commonly done which are extremely injurious to the ear, and ought to be carefully avoided.— * * * And first, children's ears ought never to be boxed. We have seen that the passage of the ear is closed. by a thin membrane, especially that adapted to be influenced by every impulse of the air, and,with nothing but the air to support it internally. What, then, can be more likely to injure this membrane than a sud den and forcible compression of the 'air in front of it ? If 'any one designed to-break or overstretch the membrane he could scarcely devise a more efficient means thar. to bring the hand suddenly and for cibly down passage of the ear, thus driv ing the air violently before it, with no possibility for its escape but by-the mem brane giving way. Many children are made deaf by boxes on the ear in this way. Nothing can be more absurd 'than the idea that "looking guilty"• proves guilt.— An honest man, charged with crime is much more likely to blush at the accusa tion than the real offender,' who is general ly prepared for the event, and has face "ready made" for the occasion.. The very thought of being suspected of anything criminal will bring the blood' to an inno : cent man's cheek in nine times out of ten. 7 The sweetest pleasures are the . soonest' gone. , 82,00 PER.
