siou to go out, for Harry was to fetch
we and take Lac to his home to tea and
to „spend the evening. , I was very much
flushed aid excited, for I dreaded meet
fug the old people, his father in par
ticular, who was always sa stern and
harsh navy. .
It was a delicious evening, and all
seemed so bright aira beautiful as I
walked across the -fields with Harry
that mine seemed to be quite a new ex
istence, awl I laughed meirily when` he
turned to me and began tv say that my
cheeks were quite flushed and that he
was very glad, because, he wanted me to
look my best and make a pleasant iin
pression upon the old folks.
Harry's father was a, carpenter and
builder in a small way of business, and
a tradesman seemed so high above me
as a servant that, as I reached the house,
the color faded Ircim 'my cheeks and I
grew quite pale, as I felt afire that HSI.-
ry's people would think I was not good
enough for their son.. ;
And so it seemed, when, I entered
the sung parlor where tea was iet on
and the evening sunshine was making
the china and silver spoons gliiten on
the jetty black tray. Everything, from
the flowers to the furniture, looked so
trigbt that for a moment I could do
nothing but admire the place.. There ' I
was, gazing in a half-shrinking fashion
at the stern-looking, gray ,old mawwith
such keen blue eyes and at the gentle,
sweet-faced old lady who came to meet
me at the door.' .; .
• They were both very kind and polite
to me; but it seemed as if they hardly
liked my coming, and were distant and
cold. Of course this made me nervous,
and I sat there trembling -in 'spite of
the rather' boisterous way which
Harry . kept on talking and bantering
me for being so quiet and dull.

a terrible upset at home, for, as Mrs.

to going , to the public house. ' •
- Then ti couple of days passed and
I heard nothingiwhile the next there
was a letter for me wOch seemed at the
time as if it:would nearly:drive mOrnad,
for'it was; from Harry.; telling me that
he could not put sup with their ways
any longer, and that he had enlisted
the -th Regiment of Foot. .
I asked leave to go opt, and went
over to thelown to find out that neither
Mr. Sohn nor Harry's mother had
heard of the etep he had taken, while,
when I put the letter in their hands and
watched their faces, I threw my ones
around Mrs. Smith's neck and we min
gled our tears.

the old man say. 'I began as a laborer,
and I have trorkedi up a nice businesa,
of which rui master, and there it is for
my own sou whpn I die; but be prefers
to be a scarriP.' .
''lt was a miserable night that, and the
old man walked home with 'me alraost
in silence. '
'Don't fret about it, my lass,' he said;
'perhaps it's all for the best.'
Not fret ? How Could I help fretting.
Harry had his faults, I - knew,. but ho
was my sweetheart; and who, I asked
myself, was perfect ? Are yon surpris
ed, then, when I tell you that after six
months' service with his regiment, when
he kept on sending me letter after letter
telling me bow bitterlytbe repented the
step he had taken, and bp`w miserable a
life he led, that I should listen to his
prayers to find the money to buy him
off ? ..• , •
He knew I had a feW savings,- and I
told myself that they were his, and I
paid the money willingly, for he told me
that he could not' exist away from -me
any longer,. and -that did not bay
him off he should desert.
Yes,ll..paid the moueyy and he came
back home to work, on and off, with a
little more steadiness, while—ppor weak
girl that I was—refused to see how he
was changed, and loved birn more than
ever. ,
Then he began to talk Of out being
married, and began to talk ()tour tieing
married, and though old Mr. : Smith op,
posed, Harry's mother was quite eager
that we should be wed:. • She thought
that, once he was settled dOwn,he would
be steady and keep to his work, and I
thoUght the same.
Just at thattime my mother died—my
father had gone years before—and this
put off our wedding six months, though
it gave me a coMfOrtable, well-furnisheti
to offer as'my portion to my
htutb,atio. ono a ts
iiake, of my po4lou. -
Shall I tell y : ou more, or - hide the
rest, screening my husband's faultsi?
I would,, but that I think ray unhappy
life may prove a warning those who
might act ns foolishly as 1 did in refus
ing to listen to the good advicelreceiv
edand in binding myself so thoroughly
to the weakness--cf the man was s'o
soon to maktony own for life. .
For, in opiositionto Mr. Smith's will,
we were married, Harty and I. The
old niau was not angry with me, but
kind throughout.
'No, my dear,' he said, fed as if I
should bd doing„ you a wrong if I gave
my consent. Yon know Hariy-now as
well as I do, and your marrying him
will not make him a better Man." • •
'Oh, yes, indeed it will,' I cried.
'God bless you, my dear,' he said,,
kissing me tenderly. 'I hope it will,
but I won't a party to the match.'
'But you won't be angry ; with us, Mr.
Smith ?' I saidimploringljt.
'With you_?;`No, my dear,' he slid.
`Nor with Harry ?'
'We've been angry with Harry for
five years, my dear, and iliblifilteep on
being angry with , him till he drops the
public house 'and sticks like a man to
his work.'
Bo we were wed, an_ imost shame
co own it—that day; for the first time,.
I saw my husband so heltileasly drunk
that, in my agony of mind, I believe
that if I could have peen nume.triel
then I should have left , him for good.
But I was his wife, and he was my
huthand, my master, whose willing
slave .1 became. working for him when
he tie:aid not 7;votk, striving ry:r to win
him te , our hoeie, bat striving iu vain.
Befcire we had been rum riecl'a year, I
was very ill with ailment brought
onby grief aud - auxiety, and when our,
little one was born and I looked upon
its little face as that of .an angel sent,
perhaps, to win my husband's love to
me and home, that little face was still;
the eyes were- closed, for my cLild had
never breathed and never saw the light
of day. 1
It was a great grief of mine to me,
but time passed on, and a couple of yeaO•
later I neld our little girl to his lips that
he might kiss outochild, and then shrink .
away, in ; : misery and despair, .findi
out, as I did, that there was something
which be loved better than his child
andime—thebase indulgence of self.
It may seem hard to speak of him ttA
I do, but a long career of misery makes
me out-spoken. Was I not left alone
that he might drink, when oar little one
laisick unto death, and hard pressed
fotmeney to obtain the the necessaries
that might save ? The few
pounds my mother had left me had
gone long before—every penny spent
in, drink=and I bad not; coinplained;
only strove on, day after - day, to• win
'inn to my side, where poor old Mrs.
Smith would often be watching:; all
night long, sometimes by the baby'a
cot,. after insisting that I should take
some rest. -
. It all seems now, in the dim distance, '
like some terrible dream of misery,
wherein I see myself with , ; Harry's
father and mother, following the lithe
girl to' the grave, and they coming
weeping bac.k to try and comfort me,
for Harry had gone away. , •
Where? I never knew; only that he
would go away for days.
I see, too as in a dram myself grow
ing thin and weary, and so ill that ,
Harry, who was back, now, and very
kind,• persuaded: ma to go. away and
stay at the seaside with my 'old mis
tress. who bad gone down there for
her health; end proposed that I should
go and wait upon her for a month.

me, and Harry's father said it would be
wise, so I went, and at the end of the
month returned kw, find that I .had no
home, for Harry had sold fdl oar little
belonging for a miserable sun), mid the
money was all gone in drink.
I sat down in the empty room by the
bare hearth, upon the little bo?r, that
had ,been my companion at the seaside,
and asked _myself what I should do.
For a Sew moments" ,a lot feeling of
indignation came over me, and I recall•

What a German Newspaper Says
Si'. Jositrit VOLESIILITT Aug. '22.1881.
We Germans are . in general not
inclined to believe at once in great an
nouncements and puffs; Nv,e are rather
suspicious, .and often with ,perfeCt right,
of exaggerations and humbugs. Our
motto is, "What the eye sees the heart
believes," and . we therifere desire to
see and examine ourselves before we
speak about things and praise them,
This was o' idea when we 'heard and
read so muc . about Dr. S. A: Rich
mond's justli% - celebrated World's Epi
leptic Institute; and we therefore sent
a reporter to the building. We are
noaLkable to give the best information
on the subject_ based end personal re
view and examination of the premises.
Our reporter found . Dr.. Richmond in
his office. The doctor kindly received .
him, and not only, answed all his
questions; Nit showed' and explained
everything- about the place to him.
Es office is on the fast • floor =of the
building; and its wall are cofered with
thousands of photographs of gentlemeu,-
and ladies re'stored to health , by the use
of Samaritan Nervine, among whom
our reviler recognized many of his
innumerable certificate of Course' 'and
letters in praise of ' this world-famous
remedy. ' • r.
About ten years ago br: Richmond
came to St. Joseph. He was then a
poor Young man, with .but little inoney,
and no friends to.assist him. He rent
ed a mall office on Francs street, and
commenced the. struggle for success
single-handed and' alone. •He has,
achieved Ei grand triumph, in • the
face of srubborn opposition on
every hand and is to-day one of the
wealthiest men in our midst,. . This fact
alone is amply sufficient to show the
merits of his invaluable preparation,
even though there were no other source
from which to procure valid and relia
ble testimony.
But besides the money which this
great medicine has,been the means of
bringing to the inventor, - the doctor
receives daily the blessings of thousands
of patients restored to health and hap
piness through his instrumentality.
These letters are open for inspection. at
his office, and it requires two clerks to
attend to this branch of the business.
Dr. Richmond is a living example to
be imitated by all young men who have
a disposition to reach eminence in the
world by dilligence in the nsS of their
own exertions, and besides the enjoy
ment of the prosperity which surrounds
him, he has the satisfaction to be re
garded a human. benefactor. .

EDUCATIONAL .NorEs.- r f-Fottr of the
County Superintendents of Kansas are

Taxation for education provides leas
than one dollar for each pupil of the
public schools of Georgia.
It is proposed in Portland, - Me., to
give the children in the public schoolis
longer summer vacation than they Ingo
hitherto enjoyed. • .Three months is
`the period fixed upon.
Gymnastic teaching in schoyls now
being obligatory in Fiance, all the ele
mentary' schools have peen provided
with a manual designed for boys and
girls respectively. Apparatus has been
presentedlo all schooli avlying for it;
since 1799 more than 600 diplomas of •
professor of gymnastics have been
grat.ted; and even the midest primary
schools have had a number of guns
placed at the disposal" of the boys for
practice in_shocting—a - preparation for
the future military . service.
The introduction of attractive reading
matter in the I,Soston public schools is
reported by Superintendent Seaver. to`
have been a , practical success.' Two
kinds of books are,used—those contain
ing infornaationsollateral to the regular
studies and those calculated to cultivate
a taste for goodl literature. Nr. Seaver
says: "It is delightful, too, to hear the
easy, natural and animated tones of the
children when reading under.the stimu
lus of freshly awakened interests; but
admirable above all is the skill of the
teacher, who ' can steadily use this
stimulons so that easy and natural
utterance in reading becomes, in time,
a fixed habit with the children.'
Among the numerous nompuies seeking
charters this year is one for the manu
facture of type-ketting- f -maching. For .
several years, in a locked room at Colt's
forks. where - only - those having special
force of men have been at work under
directions of the inventor, completing a
wonderful machine, which - is - laid now
to have reached perfection. ,It is 'a
marvelous piece of "mechaniam, both -
for-what it does and for the simplicity _
of its parts. There is a key-board as of
a piaua., with the'alphabet andnutner,
als, with combinations of letters and
short words frequently used. - A word
of six or seven letters can be put iu type
by a skilled operator in as little time as'
an ordinary compositor would take to
move his hand froin his stick to his .
ease. It sets up this type, arranges
them in the shape of - page or ,column,
justifies the lines, divides words,,etc., --
with perfect ease.. But more-than thir,
no matter how fast the typo may be set -
the rachinery is distributing type still
more ,rapidly, so that the - cases are
never empty. That is to say, the ma
chine, under the hands of a' skillful
manipulator, does easily the work of
three or fouf competitors. So -many
machines that have been made for this
purpose have primed failures, that it'
requires much faith to believe that coin
pieta success has at last- been achieved,
bnt so the gentle Men interested believei'
and most of the type' experts who . are
allowed to , inspect the machine seem to
be confined The company has al
ready orders for machines from some

Sureitsrrrious.—A certain yoang
lady who lives in Smith St. Louis has a
mother who happens tobe• a very de.
vout Christian. This conscientious"
mother whenever her daughter procures
a new bat, bonnet or new pair Of shoes,
compels her to wear it at church before;-
appearing with it in any 'place else in:
public. Last week the piing lady "ex
pected to procure a new dress . , which
she desired to wear at a party next
Thursday night. She expected to have
it done and wear it to church last
Sunday, in order to obtain the right to
wear it at , the party. As the dress
maker disappointed her however, and
failed to finish the dress in time: the
poor young,lady - is now in trouble.
She has accepted an invitation to attend -
the party,-yet the dress- must lie nu
touched until after next Sunday.
In this connection it can also be
stated 7 that many young ,men, who -
have Christian mothers, also believe in
o strange superstition. They believe
that If they walk out-oil% saloon from
the same door at which '
.they entered
they will soon be overtaken by bad
luck. As some saloons Kaye two doors,
a front and back door,, this superstition
causes young men J ci great deal of
trouble et times, as "they often find it
necessary to retire from such places .
through a narrow batik yard. When a
young man at 1 o'clock in the morning
is seen emerging from the month of
some dark alley it 14 therefore, safe to
include him among those who believe.
in the extraordinary superstition.—&.
