In drudging after gain.

t-uc an exeti.ung oiiiuey. Jjovinrfy ever,
It was just what I wanted, this little hoi
May, for I had been hard at work all winter,
ami was feeling' very I nely, very hoiue.-iok,
nnd dreary, when the invitation camj like
a glimpse of sunshine.
I knew who would be there. Five daueh
ters and their husbands, with, oh ! so many
children, most of them yountj ladies and
gentlemen ; I, the only child of a sixth
laughter, who had joined my father years
ago in the better world, and Sylvia.
I must tell you of Sylvia, the only one
jirobably of grandmother' guests was not a
child or a grandchild. She was grandma's
companion. Nobody knew much about her
previous history, excepting that hrr mother
bid been one o grandma's scholars in the
days when she kept a little school, before
grandpa came''a-wooing.
I think there was not one of the children
who would not gladly have lived at Elim
fntc, and been frrandrna's companion, hut
eho would not have it so.
"(iive me your company and your love.
1'oine to nie when you can, but never feel
v'llijfl to stay," she would say. "Sylvia
wiM live with me tiil she marries or I die."
So it was Sylvia who wrote grandma's
li tters, who read to her, and performed the
thou.-aud lttilo acts of service old people
enstant'y require. Because she was poor,
Sylvia received a sahry ; because grandma
lied pretty things about her, Sylvia accep
ted the wardrobe she provided, and was al
wiys exquisitely dressed. She was very
beautiful. Not a merely pretty face, that
depended upon color aad dress for much of
its effect, but a rarely beautiful face, full of
animation one moment, yet as lovely in re
1 o.e the next. The pending expression
was bright and joyous, for Sylvia's was a
happy nature ; but at times there would
come to her great brown eyes a wistful look,
f-ad and tender, as if soote sweet memory
f sorrow or unattainable future joy was in
her heart.
We all loved her. Maude, stately bru
nette, our queen of cousins, patronized her ;
Sn-ic, the youngest of us all, worshipped
her : and all the cousins between gave her
tiieir love, unmixed with jealousy, for we
knew she was grandma's comfort, without
depriving us of one loving throb of her true
I fairly counted the hours in niy little
hoarding-house room until I could pack a
valise for a week's sojourn at Eluisglade,
and I took an cirly breakfast and early train
on the 2Sth, drawing a long, tree breath of
delight as the iron horse snorted its way out
of the depot.
Such a houseful as I found. Maude,
Claire, and IVrcy, with Aunt Alice and
T acle Joe; Aunt Margery's twin girls and
only son, with Uncle Harry promised for
the birthday; Aunt Mary, with seven olive
branches, and Uncle Walter coming with
Uncle Harry; Aunt Sue and Uncle Lewis,
with their only child, Hester; and Aunt
Polly, wi:h ten children, and, grandma said,
Uucle I'hil, the biggest baby of the lot; I,
all alone, bat welcomed heartily. We were
all there, as grandma said, all excepting!
It was a sad gap we knew for grandma.
She had never had but o.ie son, and he died
one year after his marriage, killed by a
I'ghtniug stroke. Three days after his wife
kistd her baby boy once, and then joined
her husband, leaving the hour-old child to
He was her idol. She leved us all, but
she woridiipped Sydney, her child of chil-.
dren, her darling of darlings. We were too
yo-ng when he was at home to speculate
about the peculiarities that made older peo
ple sigh for the boy's future ; but, looking
back through the vista of years, I can now
understand why older people trembltd for
Fair as a girl, frail as a flower, beautiful
as a dream, this orphan boy inherited from
his father an artist's soul, from bis mother
a sensitive, delicate body. He was a geni

fancy, and causing no other anxiety than
that called forth by his feeble heilth. His
mother's large fortune made him indepen

I think the greatest straggle of his pet
ted life was his'choice of a profession.
Should he devote himself to music, he must
give up his hopes of being a painter ; if he
elected to be a painter, where were his
dreams of one day rivalling the master mil
sicians of the past ? Painting finally carried
the day, yet to hear Sydney touch a piano
or a vioun made one sigh for him to spend
ui.s me in music.
iSeeu I say he was the idol of aunts and
cousins? Everybody joined the compact to
spoil bydney, but he would not be spoiled:
lie was hard-working arid indolent by turns.

His college life brought him no special hon
ors, but its temptations passed him and loh
him untouched. With his great soul-lit
eyes, his white, broad brow, his sensitive
mouth, and fine features, his expression was
childlike in its innocent sweetness.
I had not been an hour at Elmsdade when
my especial pet and crony of cousins, Ella,
came to take me up stairs.
'lot! and I are to have our old room, of
course, she whispered. "Couie. let'n run
off for a chat."
We were out of school some years ago;
Ella, a fashionable young lady in society, I,
a hard working little music teacher; but,
when we were alone, we often curled up
girl fashion on our broad sofa to exchange
"Nell," I said, as sonn as we were com
fortably settled, "why don't Syd come home
for Grandma's birthday ? He has been two
years in Italy, and we may never all meet
here again."
"Sylvia," said Ella, shortly.
Had she struck mo I could not have been
more astonished.
"How do you know ?" I gasped.
"I don't know ; I only guess. When were
you hero last, lluthy '(' '
"I have not been here since Sydney left.
You know I went to B oston my last holi
days, and this visit is fairly stolen. I shall
have lo give extra leisoas for my holiday.
But about Sylvia,"
"If you were not here when Sydney left,
lluthy, I was sure you had teen Sylvia
"No, not even to-duy."
"I was here lor three months before Syd
left. I am sure he was in love with Sylvia;
and, froiii a sort of cousinly regard, such as
we all gave him, Sylvia suddenly bectme a
perfect miracle of stately propriety."
"Oh, Nell! who could help loving Syd
ney?" "Rathy, I think she did love him, but
she is so proud and so conscientious. You
know there was somo mystery about her
father "
"No mystery at all, only grandma don't
like it talked about. He was mixed up in
a trust fund swindle, a sapeoat for an un
principled let cf men, and, when he found
reputation and money both gone, he drank
himself iiyjo de eriuui tremens, and 'so
died." ' "
"Is that the story ? Bad enough it is, and
Sylvia thinks lias forever disgraced her. She
says nothing, but once, in a sudden burst of
confidence, she described to me the angelic
being Sid's wife ought to te."
"Nonsense! Syd, being rather too angelic
himself for this work-a day world wants a
good, common-sense, practical woman, to
worship his genius if she will, and keep
him in order. A nice mess the housekeep
ing would be if Syd married another angel.
Sylvia is just the wife for him."
"Mind you, Ruthy, this may be all a no
tion of infl own. All that is certain is, that
Sydney went off to Italy like flash of light
ning, grandma has grown twenty years older
since he left, and Sylvia don't like to talk
about it. She is a little sadder, arid likes to
get off by herself sometimes, but that may
mean nothing."
"Or everything. There's the tea bell,
and I have not taken off my travelling
"Never mind. Nobody is very fine to
day. Wo will all beautify to-morrow.
There is nothing in the conversation giv
en above to tell the reader what a harum
scarum madcap Miss Ella was. Rarely was
she so grave as she had been during that
little chat. The prime leader of every kind
of mischief, full of animal life, overflowing
with gay spirits. Nell was the merriest and
most mischief-making cousin of the group.
Albert, another cousin still, was usually her
ally, a id -de camp, or prime minister when
ever there was any especial trick or fun in
prospect. It was impossible to be grave
where Al and Nell had any share of a fes
tivity. It struck me when I entered the room to
meet the family at tea haw aged and broken
our dear grandmother had become, but a
change almost as marked bad come to Syl
via, I cannot describe it. She was active
in arranging for every one's comfort, as at
tentive to grandmother, as loving lo all, but
the old joyous ring was gone from bei voice ;
her eyes had a sad expression in repose ;
her movements were as graceful as ever, but
something of the spring was gone from her
step. Subtle differences not easily seen by
a casual observer, but I was thinking much
of Ella's confidence, and during the evening
noted so much change.
The birthday was merrily passed, every
ona had a gift, and on this occasion grand
mother gave ui each a keepsake. When
all were distributed, she put upon the table
where her own presents lay, a diamond rinir.
that we all knew had belonged to grandfath
'This is for Sidney," 6he said to us al!.
"If 1 do not see my boy again, this is for
him, and for his wife when he marries."
There was a hush in the room for some
moments, and I saw Sylvia go softlv awav.
Nearly an hour later I met her in the library
crouched down in a corner, white and still
"I am tired, so tired," she said when I
came in.
'You have had all the trouble, while we
took the pleasure," I said.
"Yes, that is it," 6he answered, eagerly,
as if anxious for an excuse.
'Urandma has enjoyed it," I said, "but
it Was very evident she missed Sidney. He
ought to come home, or he may never see
her again.
"O, Iluth, he ought to come home to
,. It .6ecmed as if the exclamation was
forced froul her, for a moment later she
said :
'But ho is learning a great deal. He
writes that he never knew what it was to be
an artist till he seen Italy."
"Doe3 he write to you?"
"I answer for his grandmother. You
know I read and write all her letters."
"True ! If you are so very tired, Sylvia,
go lie down till bed-time, or go to bed, and
1 will undress grandmother and read to
her to-night."
She accepted the offer gratefully, and I
returned to the drawing-room and made her
excuses. , -
The next day the whole household went
crazy. It was April tool's Day, and every
one of the busy bee hive of young folks
tried to outdo the other in the magnitude or
mischief of the tricks. Praotioal jokes was
the order of the day. Nob'bdy was safe.
Even grandmother joined in the innocent
merriment, and gave us for a dessert a won
derful pie made of shavings, white cotton,
wool. and crimson worsted, adelectp-ble com
pound so skilfully concocted that hdlf of us
had tasted ir L' J:- -... - . i
of egg was wool, our preserves worsted, and
our pie crust wood shavings. Sylvia seem- j
ed to catch t he merry tone. Nobody's sur
prises were more startling than hers, but
she was so wonderfully on her guard that at
dust, tiobody could boast of having "fooled"
Sylvial Nell Holoinnly declared that She
would not have a wink of sleep if she did
not play otic trick on Sylvia, but owned her
self puzzled as to the modus operandi.
I had gone from the house down to the
gardner's lodge some little distance, but on
the grounds, on an errand for grandma.
Returning, and walking rather rapidly, for
it was growing late, I met Ella hurrying to
wards me.
"Ruth, Syd is here."
"He meant to be here for the birth-day,
but the steamer was one day behind time.
Iluth, I was right.
"I don't understand you."
"About Sylvia ! I did not mean to listen.
but I was in grandma's dressing-room, when
lie came to tho bed room. Nobody had
seen him, and after a few words of greetiug
he asked her what do you thiuk?"
"O Nell, ought you tell !"
"You won't betray me. He don't know
whether Sylvia loves hiui or not, and grand
ma has hot found out in two years. She
would ba glad, lluthy, to have Sydney hap
py in his own way, but she cannot say a
word to encourage h,iui to hope."
"It seems too had."
"He is so thin and so pale, Ruthy. She
will kill him, hard hearted as she is."
"Pshaw ! Men don't die of love."
"But Sydney isn't like other men."
We were at the house by this tiriic, and
could see the whole party assembled in the
drawing-room, excepting grandmother, who
was still iri her cwr) room witH Sydney.
Sylvia was at the piano playing a waltz, as
we opened the door. Just as we did so, I
heard grandmother on the stairs, saying ;
"How surprised they will all be to see
you, Sydney," and at the same moment Nell
whispered to me :
"I'm going to play an April fool's trick
on Sylvia, and catch her."
It seemed but a second, and I could still
bear grandmother's slowly descending steps,
when Nell dashed into the drawing-room
crying :
"Oh ! have you heard that Sydney is
Every face paled, and a cry of consterna
tion broke from every one, but there was a
more ominous sound still, a heavy fall, and
Sylvia lay insensible upon the floor.
It was a cruel experiment. Sydney's
self in their midst relieved the other's, but
he saw nothing but Sylvia. Only to hear
her speak again, only to see her eyes open
acain. he Dleaded as if for his life. We
opened the windows and let the cold even
ine air blow in upon her t we drenched her
face and hair with water; and, finally, Nell
coaxed everybody away but Sydney and my
"Will she ever waken, Ruthy?" be said
to me, with stiff, white lips.
"It is only a faintiDg fit," I answered,
.liafinir the cold, lifeless hands. "You
heard Nell's cruel joke?"
"Was it that?" he asked.
Oh, the selfishness of men ! Ilia color
was returning, and a look creeping into bis
eyes of fond exaltation.
"Sylvia," fie said, bending his lips to
hers, "you are. mine now.
She heard him, for a faint color came to
her cheeks, and she tried to move. I saw
she was reviving, and I left them together.
Nell met me in the hall.
"I have got them all in to tea," she said.
"Ruthy, have I killed her?"
"No, indeed. Go tell grandmother all is
well now."
"You don't mean " .
"I don't know ; I only guess," I said ;
"but I guess we'll get our wedding."
And I was right Having betrayed so
much, Sylvia gave her love fully and freely
as her nature was. She let her pride sleep,
and Sydney went no more to Italy, for
grandmother pleads for her best beloved
child to close her eyes when they shall
close to open no more in this world, and
Sylvia thinks no home can be like Elms
glade. You can't make Nell believe she
did a wrong thing.
"I was awfully frightened," she will own,
"but I am glad as csn be I caught Sylvia
once on April Fool's Pay. "
Ead Oyster Story';,
This is an original story. It originated
with somebody else years ago. It it a high
ly interesting story, said never to have been
published before it appeared in some news
paper many years ago, and although not ex
actly in season, it is good. ; ,

The Stewart opens a fine fresh one, and
puts it on a plate before the Frenchman;
who eyes it for some time, and then says :

"Yes sir; prime."
The Frenchman swallows it, (the first he
ever ate,) opens his eyes; puts his hands on
his bread basket, aad "bl-a up," up comes

old customer was another thing.

but I did not like hiih I swallow zat oys

"Bl-a-up," and up came the oyster, and
the Frenchman danced with delight.
"'Ah monsieur, bad oystair ; oui, certain

The reporter, speechless with horror, ran
to the brandy bottle, swallowed about half
and mizzled.
The Frenchman followed, remarking, "zat

A Nice Speculation. A cow belong
ing (o a western family recently strayed into
a neighbor's garden patch, and he secretly
penned her up. The cow's owners were
obliged to have milk, and hearing that
their neighbor had a good cow, bought their
milk of him for three weeks. They then
ascertained that they had been buying what
was their own, and rushed to law for ven
geance. This is equal to the story told of a
Yankee out west, who during some excite
ment which called the neighbors together,
raised a tent over a barrel of cider which
te had somehow obtained while it wp.s yet a
rarity in that quarter, and began selling it
at twenty-five cents a glass. For a while
his custom was tremendous, and his cider
was bringing a heavy revenue, when all of
sudden his custouJer3 grew fewer. Present
ly a man came in and asked him how much
cider was. When told that it was twenty
five cents a glass,the ttould-bo customer told
the cider vender that he could get it around
the corner for ten cents a glass. Supposing
his was the only cider within hundreds of
miles, the man went with the other on a
tour of discovery, and found, to his conster
nation, that some one had pitched a tent
immediately to the rear of his, covering the
end of his cider barrel which be had left
exposed, tapped it, and was doing an ex
tensive business at very little expense.
Gluttony is the source of all our diseases.

The Kidneys are two in number, sitnatad at tho
upper part ot the loin, surrounded by fat. and
consisting of three parts, vis; the Anterior, the"
Interior, and the Exterior.
The anterior absorbs Interior consists of tie
snes or veins, which serve as a deposit for the)
urine and oonvey it to the exterior. Tbe exte
ner is t conductor also, terminating in a single)
tube, and ealled the t'reter. The ureters are con
nected with the bladder.
The bladder is composed of various coverings
or tissues, divided into parts, vis: tbe Upper, th
Lower, tbe Nervous, and tbe Mucous. The upper
expels, the lower retains. Many have a desire to
urinate without tbe ability, others urinate with
out the ability to retain. This frequently occurs
in children.
To cure these afleotions, we must bring into ac
tion the muscles, which are engaged in their va
rious functions. If they ere neglected, Gravel or
Dropsy may ensue.
The reader mast also be made aware, that how
ever slight may be tbe attack, it is sure to affeo-
tbe bodily health and mental nowera.a nnr flK

Tbb Gravel. The grave! ensues from neglect
or improper treatment of the kidneys. These or
gans being weak, the water is not expelled from
tbe bladder, bat allowed to remain; it beeomes
feverish, and sediment forms. It is from this de
posit that the stone is formed, and gravel ensue.

U. T, Helnbold, Druggist: . ,
Dear Sir: I nave been a sufferer, for upward
of twenty years, with gravel, bladder and kidney
affections, during which time I have used various
medicinsV'n''reparations. and been under ine treat
ment of tbe most eminent Physicians, experien
cing but little relief.
Having seen your preparations extensively ad
vertised, I consulted witb my family physician In
regard to using your Extract Duchu.'"
I did this because I bad nsed all kinds of ad
vertiied remedies, and had found them worthies,
and some quite injurious; in fact, I despaired of
ever getting well, and determined to use no rem
edies hereafter unless I knew of the ingredient.
It was this that prompted me to use your remedy.
As you advertised that it was composed of buchu,
tubebs and juniper berries, it occurred to me and
uy physician as an excellent combination, and,
a ith his advice, after an examination of tbe arti
cle, and contulting again with the druggist, I
concluded to try it. 1 commenced it use about
eigBt months ago, at which time I was confined
to my room From the rst bottle I was astonish
ed and gratified at the beneficial effect, and after
using it three weeks was able to walk out. I felt
much like writingyou a full statement of my case)
at that time, but thought my improvement might
only be temporary, and therefore concluded to
defer and see if it would effect a perfect cure,
knowing then it would be of greater value to yod
and mora satisfactory to cie.
I am now able to report that a cere 1 effected
after using tbe remedy for five month.
I have not used any now for three months, and
fel as well in all respects as I ever did.
Yoor Bncbu being devoid ot any unpleasant
taste and odor, a nice tonic and invigorator of th
ayatemI do not mean to be without it whenever
occasion may require its use in soch affection. .
