"You cuarantee to pay all bills out of

"Perhaps not. At any rate I will engage
not to exceed it."
"That's irell. I shouldn't relish having
any additional bills to pay. .A I a:;i paid
oyery month, I will at each payment hand
you half the money."
The different characters of husband and
wife may be judged from the conversation
which has been recorded. Mr. Newton had
but little prudence or fore-ii:ht. lie lived
chiefly for the present, and seemed to fancy
that whatever co:i;in jencies might arise in
tha future, he would somehow be provided
for. Now trust in Providence is a proper
t.-elins, but there is a good deal of truth in
the old adage that (od will help those who
Mrs. Newton, on the contrary, had been
brought up in a,family which was compelled
to be economical, and although she was not
disposed to deny herself comforts yet she
felt that it was desirable to procure them at
a fair price..
The time that this conversation took place
was at the commencement of the second
year of th. r msrnej life.
The first step vch'u-h Mrs. Newton took,
on accepting the charge of the household
espouses, was to institute the practice of
paying cash for all article- th:it came under
her department. She accordingly called on
the butcher and inquired :
"How often have you been in the habit
of presenting your bills, Mr. Williams?"
"Once in six months," was the reply.
."And I suppose you have sometimes bad
"Yes, one third of my profits" ou an av
erage, are swept off by them."
"And you could afford, I suppose, to fell
somewhat cheaper for ready money?"
"Yes, and I would be glad 11 all my cus
tomers would give me a chance to doso.'
"I will set them an example then," said
Mrs. Newton. "Hereafter whatever articles
fhall be purchased of yon will be paid for
cn the spot, and we ohall expect you to sell
as reasonable as you can."
This arrangement was also made with the
others, who it is scarcely needful to say were
very glad to enter into the arrangement.
Ready money is the great support of the
trade, and a cash customer is worth two who
purchase on credit.
Fortunately Mrs. Newton had a small
supply of money of her own which lasted
till the first monthly installment for her
husband became due. Thus she was ena
bled to carry out her cash plan from the
Another plan which occurred to her as
likely to save expense, was to purchase ar
ticles in larger quantities. She had soon
saved enough from the money allowed her
to do this. For example, instead of buying
sugar a few pounds at a time, she purchased
a barrel, and thus saved a cent or more on
the pound. This, perhaps, amounted to
but a trifle in the course of a year, but the
same system carried out in regard to other
articles yielded a result which was by no
means a trifle.
There were other ways in which a careful
housekeeper is able to limit expense, Mrs.
Newton did not overlook with an object in
view she was always on the lookout to pre
vent waste, and to get the full value of what
ever was expended.
The result was beyond her anticipation.
At the close of the year, on examining
her bank book for she had regularly de
posited whatever money she had not occa
sion to ne in one of these institutions she
found that she had one hundred and fifty
dollars besides reimbursing herself for the
money the first month, and having enough
to last another.
"Well, Elizabeth, have you kept within
your allowance?" asked her husband at
this time. "I cuess you have not found it
so easy to save as you thought for."
"I have saved something, however. But
how is it with you?"
"That's more than I can say. However
I have not exceeded :ny income, that's one
good thing. We have lived full as well,
and I don't know but better than last year,
when we spent five hundred.''
"It's knack, Ezra," said his wife smil
ing. She was not inclined to mention how
muck she had saved. She wanted some
time or other to surprise him with it when
it would be of some service.
"She may possibly have eavx-d up twenty
five dollars," thought Mr. Newton, '"or
some such trifle," and so dismissed the
matter from his mind.
At the end of the second year. Mrs. New
ton's savings, in -hiding the interest. amount

she began to feci quite rich.

lie addee1 : "As I before allowed you one
half my income for household expenses, it
is no more than fair 1 should do so now.
That will give you a better chance to save
part of it than before. Indeed, I don't
know how you succeeded in saving anything
As before Mrs. Newton merely said that
she had saved something, without specify
ing the amount.
Her allowance was increased to tlx hun
dred dollars, but her expenses were not
proportionally increased at all ; so that her
savings for the third year swelled to the ag
gregate sum in the savings bank to six hun
Mr. Newton, on the contrary, in spite of
his increased salary, was no better off at
the end of the third year than before. Hi
expenses had increased by a hundred dol
lars, though he would have found it difficult
to tell in what way his comfort or happiness
had been increased thereby.
In spite of his carelessness in regard to
his own affairs, Mr. Newton was an excel
lent man in regard to his business, and his
services were valuable to bis employer.
They accordingly increased his salary from
time to time, till it reached sixteen hundred
dollars. He had steadily preserved the
custom of assigning one-half to his wife for
the same purpose as heretofore, and this
had become such a habit that he never
thought to inquire whether she found it ne
cessary to employ the whole or not.
Thus ten years rolled away. During all
this time Mr. Newton lived in the same
hired house for which he had paid an an
nual rent of one hundred and fifty dollars.'
Latterly, however, he had become dissatis
fied with it. It had passed into the hands
of a new landlord, w ho was not di 'posed to
keep it in the repair nhick he considered
About this time a block of excellent
houses were erected by a capitalist, who de
signed to sell them or let them as he might
have an opportunity. They were more
modern and much better arranged than the
one in which Mr. Newton now lived, and he
felt a strong desire to move in one of them.
He mentioned it to his wife one morning.
"What is the reut ?" she inquired.
"Two hundred and twenty -five dollars for
the corner house; two hundred for either
of the others."
"The corner one would be preferable on
account of the side windows."
"Y'es, and they have a large yard besides.
I think we must hire one of them. I guess
I'll engage one to day j you know our year
is out next week."
"Please wait till to-morrow, Ezra, before
"For what, reason ?",,
"Ihould like to examine the bouse."
Soon after breakfast Mrs. Newton jailed
on Squire Bent, the owner of the new
block, and intimated her desire to be shown
the corner house. The request he readily
complied with ; Mrs. Newton was quite de
lighted with all the arrangements, and ex
pressed her satisfaction.
"Are these houses for sale or to let ?" she
"The rent is, I understand, two hundred
and twenty-five dollars."
"Y'es, I consider the corner house worth
at least twenty five dollars more than the

"Very well, I will buy it of you," said

asked the Squire, scarcely believing his

The next morning Mrs, Newton asked her
husband to take a walk, but ithout speci
fying the direction.
They soou stood in front of the house in
which he desired to live.
"Wouldu't you like to go in?" she in
quired. "YTes. It's a . pity we haven't got the
key," with which she walked up the steps
and proceeded to open the door.
"When did you get the key?" asked the
"Yesterday, when I boltght the house,"
she said quietly.
Mr. Newton gazed at his wife in pro
"What on earth doyou mean.Elizabeth?"
"Just what I say. The house is mine,

"Where in the name of goodness did you
raise the money?" asked the husband, his
amazement still as grejt as ever.
"I haven't been a managcing wife for ten
years for nothing," she said smilingly.
With some difficulty Mrs. Newton per
suaded her husband that the price of the
house was really the result of her savings.
He felt when he surveyed the commodi
ous arrangements of the house that he had
reason to be gratelul to the prudenno ' '
How eloquent is silence ! Acquiescence,
contradiction, deferer.ee, disdain, embar
rassment and awe, may all be expressed by
saying nothing. It may be necessary to il
lustrate this apparent paradox by a lew ex
amples. Do you seek an assurance of yout
mistress's affection? The fair one confirms
her lover's fondest hopes by a compliant
and assenting silence. Should you hear an
assertion, which you deem false, made by
one ot who.-e veracity politeness may with
hold you from openly declaring your doubt,
you denote a difference of opinion by re
maining silent. Are you receiving a repri
mand from a superior? You mark your re
spect by an attentive silence. Are you
compelled to listen to the frivulous conver
sation of a fop ? You signify your opinion
of him by treating his loquacity with con
temptuous silence. Are you in the course
of any negotiation about lo eater on a dis
cussion painful to your own feelings, aud to
those who are concerned in it? The subject
is almost invariably prefaced by an awk
ward silence. Silence has also its utility and
advantages. And first, what an invaluable
portion of domestic strife might have been
prevented, how often might the quarrel
which by mutual aggravation has perhaps
terminated in bloodshed, have been check
ed at its commencement by a judicious si
lence ! Those persons only who have ex
perienced them are aware of the beneficial
effects of that forbearance, which to the ex
asperating threat, the malicious sneer, or
the unjustly imputed culpability, shall never
answer a word. Secondly there are not
wanting instances where the reputation,
fortune, the happine.'S, nay, the life of a
fellow creature uiiht be preserved by a
The Poitsville Minttrg Jmimat has the
following paragraph on "What becomes of
the bibles:" "It will no doubt be rather
discouraging o the Bible Society to learn
that many bibles distributed by them are
destroyed, thrown in the r:ig bag and sold
for old paper. We were shown on Satur
day evening a handsome new bible from
which the cover had been stripped and the
book sold for old paper at the rate of three
cents per pound to a dealer in Railroad
street. It weighed fourteen ounces, and
therefore yielded two and a half cents to the
depraved being who sold it. Its original
cost would not have been less than one dol
lar and a half. We are informed by the gen
tleman who had this book in his possession
that there were several more bibles of the
same kind in the pile of paper rags from
which be took this one all of which, no
doubt were dirtributed by the bible So
ciety." A TOCN'O miss, in a Seekonk school, in a
recitation in geography, informed her aston
ished teacher that "the mammoth caravan
in Kentucky is the greatest living curiosity,
and has been exploded ten miles from its
Death of a Noted Indian Hunter.
"Belmont," the Steubcnville correspond
ent of the Pittsburg Commercial, furnishes
that paper with the following incidents in
the life of Joseph Worley, who died at
Bridgeport, Ohio, a few weeks ago, at the
age of 102 years. He was an adept in fron
tier life, and was the chosen leader in many
expeditions against the red skins. After
recounting the history of his early life and
training, the correspondent says:
Simon Girty, the notorious white rene
gade, was at this time withtlie Indians on
the Sandusky plains, and frequently headed
their marauding raids upon the settlements.
It was the aim of the settlers to vanquish
this most formidable foe, and Mr. Worley,
with others, undertook the task of capturing
him. In this new work Mr. Girty, at the
head of the Ottawa warriors, was pursued
across the Ohio at Meigs Island up the
waters of Cross creek, and far into the in
terior of what is now the State of Ohio, his
pursuers enduring unparalleled privation
and encountering perilous difficulties, but
always unsuccessful in his capture.
Some time early in life Worley and his
brother Jacob, who seems to have been as
heroic as the other, drifted toward Fort
Henry, occupying the point where Wheel
ing now stands, and here they liecaaie ac
quainted with the famous Lewis Wetzel. one
of the most noted Indian hunters ot Amer
ican pioneer history. Worley, who was sev
eral years Wetzel's junior, was his very in
timate friend, and his almost constant com
panion in the woods. Ou one occasion hav
ing discovered fresh evidences of the pres
ence of Indians in the neighborhood of the
settlements, Wetzel and Worley undertook
to ascertain their whereabouts. They fol
lowed their tracks for several miles, and
became so iutent upon their prey, as to
scarcely become aware of the distance they
had wauuered from the settlements until
they had gone eleven or twelve miles South,
and nearly opposite the point where the
Baltimore and Ohio Railroad now strikes
the Ohio riven Here they came upon a
camp of Indians, who discovered the hun
ters ahout the same time they were them
selves discovered. Both parties took to the
trees, after the custom of Indian fighting,
but the Indians greatly outnumbered the
others. Six or seven stalwart and trained
Indian warriors of the Huron tribe were
now pitted against two determined hunters ; )
and, as if to add to the danger of their po
sition, Wetzel was recognized by the Indi
ans as their implacable and life long enemy.
Now began a duel a running fight a lit'e-
aild death contest V .n:..f.rininn emild (
reach the hunters until they had traveled at
least ten miles, and long before that their
wily foes would overpower them in all prob
ability. Y'et they determine J to sell their
lives dearly. Wetzel took command, and
Worley obeyed him implicity. In recount
ing it oftentimes afterward Mr. Worley grew
animated, and nobly attributed to Wetzel
the salvation of his life.
A tall Huron warrior was the first to fall.
He rushed out from his covert with a demo
niac yell.thinking that they were unprepared
for a sudden attack, or would readily yield
to the force of superior numbers. But in
this he was mistaken, and his life paid the
penalty. For a moment or so afterward the
other Indians were silently and apparently
awestruck, but in that interval Wetzel had
again loaded his gun. Several shots were
fired at him, but he was securely shielded
by a tree. And so from tree to tree for four
exciting miles, the hunters dodged and crept.
Another warrior, in seeking stealthily to cut
off their retreat, was killed, and the others
became more cautious. Once Wetzel pur.
his cap on the ramrod, as though he was
peering round the free, and when the Indian
shot a bullet through it he let it drop to the
ground. The Indians all rushed out, when
two others fell. The movements were now
carried on on both sides, with the utmost
caution. The hunters worked their way
gradually to the fort, the three remaining
Indians becoming every moment more anx
ious. One of their number, perhaps while
carefully climbing a tree on the opposite
side from the hunters, with a view of start
ing them from their lurking-place, uncon
sciously exposed himsslf, and was wounded
by one of the hunters ; whereupon the other
Indians, having trusted so long to the su
periority of their numbers, and having a
peculiar awe of Wetzel, stole away into the
depths of the woods, leaving the hunters to
return to the fort to recount what was even
theu esteemed a marvelously heroic feat.
This circumstince was related to your cor
respondent years ago, when Joeph orlcy
was even then called an oil man.
A dabbler in literature and the fine arts,
who prided himself on his lauguage came
upon a youngster a few days since sitting
upon the bauk of the river fishing for gud
geons, and thus addressed him: "Adoles
cence, art thou uot endeavoring to entice
the finny tribe to engulf into their denticu
lated mouths a barbed hook, upon whose
point is affixed a dainty allurement ?" "No,'
said the boy, "V'm a Jiihin."

The Kidneys are two in number, situated at tha
upper part of the loin, surrounded by fat, and
consisting of three parts, vis : the Anterior, the
Interior, and the Exterior.
The anterior absorbs Interior consists of tis
sues or veins, which serve as a deposit for the
urine and convey it to the exterior. The exte
rior is a conductor also, terminating in a single
tube, ad called the Ureter. The nreters are con
nected with the bladder.
The bladder is composed of various coverings
Or tisiues, divided into parts, via: the Upper, the
Lower, the Nervous, and the Mucous. The upper
expels, the lower retains. Many have a desire to
urinate without the ability, others nrinato with
out the ability to retain. This frequently occur
To cure these affections, we most bring into ac
tion the muscles, which are engaged in their va
rious functions. If they ere neglected, Gravel or.
Dropsy may ensue.
The redaer must also be made aware, that howj
ever slight may be the attack, it Is sure to affect
the bodily health and mental powers, as our flesh
and blood are supported from these sources
GoiT, on P.HEi KATlsa Piin occurring in the
loins is indicative of the above diseases. They
occur in persons disposed to acid stomach and
Tux Gbatel. The gravel ensues from neglect
or improper treatment of the kidneys Theee or
gans being weak, the water is not expelled from
the bladder, but allowed to remain; it becomes
feverifh, and sediment forms. It is from this de
posit that the stone is formed, and gravel ensues.
I'ropst is a collection of water in some parts of
the body, and bears different names. according to
the parts affected, vis: when generally diffused
over the body, it is called Anasarca ; when of the
Abdomen, Aeite; when of th chest, Iiydroth
Treatment. Helmbold's highly concentrated
compound Extract Euchu is decidedly one of th
best remedies for diseases of the bladder, kidneys,
gravel. dropsical swellings, rhenmatisu.and gouty

tity, but increase in color, or dark water. It was
- r- -'t-r --w-d by the lata Dr,
Phyeick, in theso affections.
This medicine Increases the power of digestion
and excites the kbsorbenta into healthy exercise
by which the watery or calcareoas deposition
and all unnatural enlargements, as well as pain
and inflammation are reduced, and it is taken by
men, women and children. Directions for us and

H. T. n elk bold, Druggist:
Deab Sib: I nave been a sufferer, for upward
of twenty years, with gravel, bladder and kidney
affections, during which time I have used various
medicinal preparations, and been under the treat
ment of the most eminent Physicians, experiea
cing but little relief
Having seen your preparations extensively ad
vertised, I consulted with my family Lbysician in
regard to using your Extract Buchu.
I did this because I had used all kinds of ad
vertised remedies, and had found them worthless,
and mc quite injurious ; in fact, I despaired of
ever geiting well, and determined to use no rem
edies hereafter unless I knew of th ingredient.
It was this that prompted me to use your remedy.
As you advertised that it was composed of buchu,
mbebs and juniper berries, it occurred to me and
my physician a an excellent combination, and,
aith his advice, after an examination of th arti
cle, and consulting again with tb druggist, I
concluded to try it. I commenced its as about
eight months ago, at which time I waa confined
to my room Prom the first bottle I was astonish
ed and gratified at th beneficial effect, and after
using it three weeks was able to walk out I fell
much like writing you a full statement of my case
at that time, out thought my improvement might
only be temporary, and therefore concluded to
defer and sea if it would effect a perfect core,
knowing then it would be of greater value to you
and more satisfactory to me.
I am now able to report that a cur 1 effected
after using the remedy for five months.
I havo not u?ed any now for three months, and
feel as well in all respects as I ever did.
Your Bucbu being devoid ot any unpleasant
taste and odor, a nice toni.-i and invigorator of th
system, I do not mean to be without it wbt never
occasion may require its use in such affections.

be refers to the following gentlemen:
