MISCELLANEOUS,
HIS MOTHER'S SAID.
" No, I shall- never marry. And don't
laugh so incredulously, Lottie dear,.; Ono
eedn't be a confirmed old maid in years,
mar ugly, nor decrepit, to have a buried ro.
mance whose ghost would rise M forbid
vows of loyalty 'lt any other shrine."
,'And, heaving d deep sigh, Nettie Clare
sadly shook her pretty bead, while the dark
blue eyes grew darker With the intensityl, of
the feeling which had prompted her Words.
'lt was small wonder that her frfind
should have greeted them with . a 'nary
laugh of incredulity, for Nettie was- passing
fair to look 'wpm, with a complexion rare
and 'colorless as marble, eyes of Irish blue,'
and hair black as the raven's wini. •
_ .
No wrinkles marred the 'owl bro w 'to
mark the twenty short years Which had
over her young head. No lines had
impressed themselves about the sweet,
sympathetic mouth to betray this secret sor
row.
As yet the ghastly skeleton bad left no
outward: trace upon either face or form.
Nevertheless, Lottle Armetrong knew and
toted her too well not to know these words
just uttered were no jest. but very sorry
earnest.
- " What are you talking about, Nettie?'
she exclaimed. "Do you mean, to tell me
that yont are a victim to unrequited love—
you, whose life has been one long exponent
Of Caesar's motto ? Nonsense; - ma Mere I
If. through those mischief.niaking eyes . of,
yours, you can by a, glance of indifference
work such havOc, what would it be if they
softened with areal feeling? Unless,' per.
chance, the man is ;blind, aid compassion
for his infirmity Lase won your heart; but
how, then, about the low, musical ' voice
erbetee'rwities,-2 fem.' 111fAirr:
IaIiPabuSUISCCI Iv
"Don't jest, Lottie; The man is neither
blind nor, deaf to others ; both to me, for he
has never seen nor spoken to me since I was
five years old." •
"Never seen nor spoken to you:" echoed
her friend, is ihcredidous amaze. , "And
you have loved him since your babyhood!
Nettie, have you gone mad?" -
" No, dear, I aril very sane. Listen, and
I will tell you all about it. Our friendship
is too dose and warm 'to withhold from it
my confidence, and inasmuch as it is all I
shall have through the long, empty ears of
the future, it is due us both that yo should
understand all this secret romance `of my
life.
"For it is a romance, Lottie, though
very sad and very real to n i ll. arg Y az tu have
heard me speak of my Aunt- t, who
monied my mother's ' brother. When she
married him she was a widow,* with one
son. Cousin Harry,' I was taught •to call
him, though, as ycsi see, he, was' in reality
no relation.
"The summer that I was flee years old I
was spending a month with "my aunt, and
()cousin Harry was home, on his vacation
from college. - He was then eighteen, and
made of me at once a pet and plaything.
• " Soon after , that, it seems some slight
family difficulty arose, and I never Went
:here again. But always Cousin , Ha&y
wrote to me. Wlfign he . left college the
joined 'the army ,and went out to India.
There he ' distinguished himself and was
promoted in some fight. , Two or three
times he bas sent me photograplu4 taken at
different places.
• ,
" Yon Inn% thought me very kind to ,Itrr.
ry Reed. He knew Cousin Harry, and' it is
of 'hint we have talked. He has told me
how bravo and handsome he was—how he
exercised over men and women alike a
charm which could not be resisted.
in 0118 letter he discussed this
nonsensical quarrel, and determined he at
least wniiid not be a party to it. But, two
years alp my Uncle Iteginald died. IHe
had alWays led Harry to suppose that he was
to be hiss heir. Instead, he left his wretched
money aU to me.
-IP This was bad, but he made it worse by
ini'dmiatink that the money might yet be
Hurry's, if he could win me for his wife.
All was arranged just then.that I was to pay;
his mother a visit, end he was coining home
from India on leave, to see the little =win
who had been his boyhood's pet
"Instead, he wrote his mother a letter eke
sent to me, without one softening word, but
with the bitter reproach that I had schemed
to On my uncle's wealth, and rob her boy

And so it happened that a fortnight
later,
in pursuance of this resolve, kettle par e's
eyes were once more gladdened by a sight of
" -
the defr old place she had expected to see
never again.
The welcome she received was kind, but
it was `the welcome of the grind lady to -the
youbg woman paid to do her service, though
she saw the ahnott*perceptible start given
by the mistress of the home, when her leyea
rested on the slight graceful figure, whose
air of elegance and breeding could not be
disguised by the simple black dress the had
assumed in which to masquerade tker role.
" How came you to take such a position,
child ?" asked Mrs. Ellison, ono morning,
when Nettie had fulfilled her duties 'for more
than a month. -
She had asked her that day to read to
her; but, as she listened to the sweet
voice, she bad heard none of the meaning of
the words, but had bean instead intently'
studying the exquisite face which:bent over
the book.'
" How little I thoight, wictii I inserted
my advertisement s I should be* favored r
continued Mts. ,
' Yon are very kind; miidinnt, to be pleased
,with-me," Nettie answered; "but you must
not ask me of my past life. !shall be 'glad
if by fnitiful duty I can brighten votes ever
so littlit." • 4
• Theis was real feeling in the voice which
touched the listener's heart. Proud ladrits
she was, hipresence of this girl she almost
forgot the social gulf' between them. She
waa.ill and suffering, too, and she learned to
tong for the cool White hand which bathed
her brow so untiringly, and for the sound of
the quiet step which told her her maid was
near by. •
One morning a letter I r astuaided bee, and
Nettle saw her eyes glisten and team of joy
mop on the Page: _ I • -
"My. boy . is
-cominghome," she mur
mured. "He was to follow his letter
almost immediately, be writes. Next week
'be will be MEL Why, child, what ,is the
"Nothing, madam. I will go to my own
'room. I shall be bettelsoon."
But when she returned; though calm, she
still was white 'and grave. -
"I must leave 'you, *is. Ellison," she
said, sadly.. "I am not Buell, d find, and
must send some one to you to fill my
place." , s, .
"Leave me!" cried the invalid. "Nettie, ;
you must not think of such a thing. If you
are ill, you shall be nursed as though you
were my own daughter, but I must know
you are near me. Child, what makes you so
near and dear to me ?" •
But Nettie's only , , answer was a burst of
tears. And so when the young master cable
to his home, she still held there tho position
of his mother's maid.
." She is a lady, Hatch" said his mother.
" I am sure of her birth and breeding as of
my own, but can get her to disclose noth
ing," to all of which the young man listened
indifferently, Though he, too, bad started at'
sight Of the rare beauty, and found
himself listening delightedly to the tones of
the low, as, .et voice.
"I muiii go,". Nettie said to herself, when
this had gone on foi several days. "I am
only making my own misery the rater,
find signing the death -warrant to my own
happinesa!
But 'resolutions are not•always made to be
kept, and the next Morning all else 'was for..

.nameless girl, his

"As my mother sald," he told Ithrntelf,
"She is a lady. Every act, every gesture,

win a woman for her gold. , When' Nettie is
mine we will invite the _other Nettie to Thor
burn again. Will she come, I woruter?
and has she, too, had love's young dream
ere this?" .
. That very _evening, Nettie listened to the ,
few, frank words in which Caitairr Harry'
told his love—listened with'flushed' cheek
and 'downbeat head.
But when he would have drawn her to his
heart, she resisted the loving effort, and held
herself erect. '
" What is the love you would' Offer your
mother's maid ?I' she asked.
" The same that I bore to offer my
mother's daughter," he replied, "if, my
darling, you will be that daughter and my
wife." . •
" And what does she say P - Ask her!"
she persisted, .
"/Sho cams her son's prayer," . said a
voice from the open-doorway.
One swift gbince Nettie gave toward her;
then, going to meet her, drew her il2O an
easy-chair and fell on her knees at her !feet.
" Listen first to mfeonfeasion," ribeisaid,
brokenly, " and then tell me whether I mdit,

PREPARING FUR SKINS.
The. process of preparing_ skins, is simple,
and when received by the manufacturerlhey
have generally been ' only stretched and
dried,' with a solution of alum er arsenic ap.
plied to tke tinder side. The dealers treat
them to camphor, and when they are to be
made up they are placed in barrels or tubs
of rancid butter and trampled. by the bare
feet of men, sprinkled with sawdust, scraped
over knives to takeoff the flesh, and after,
repeated changes they are ready for the fur- .
tier, i who cuts them hire shapes desired.
Unicruptdmis dealers often make up hand
some garments by carefully matching small ,
pieces of fur, and so
, skillfully is this done
that the customer rarely finds it out until
the garnumt r is, perhaps, made over, when
the fraud is ',' exposed. A great many • furs
are dyed, iiii:the muskrat, beaver, otters etc.,
mad the value of the seal-skin . entirely de
pends' upon the skill with which this is done,
the diffilty being to dye, the fur without
having e dye reach the pelt . }lt is said
that the,
best skins are dyed in Lotidon, and
that they can be dyed properly , nowhere
else ; bet American dealers think otherwise,
and to the American dyer is due . the discov
ery of the process by which the fur4eal fur
presents so rich a bruarn tint without hurtl
ing the fur, at the same time leaving the
pelt soft, pliable, and lasting. Certain of
the monkey tribe are used, and the fur of
some of the skvety white ones is extreme],
rich, bringing; a fair price for trimmings.
The monkeys from the west of Afrien, with
long, .floyvinOutir, are in great demand,
while other skins are rarely used. ..The
skins may be quoted at 40,000!yearly, or
from $611,000 to 1170,000 worth. Th3se,
with the skins of various animals that are
ingl‘ ur-bearing, would show an • enormous
interest, giving somewhat of an idea of the
dependence of man upon his fellowLanimals.

MADE HIM COME TO TIME.
• About two yeas* ago a wealthy man
'named Paige, whose wife was still asleep in
the fourth story of a burning hotel at Osh
kOsk4 Wisconsin, offered any Tenon $5,000
if he would rescue her dead tlor alive. At
great peril of his life, the assistant engineer
of the Fire Department ; bronlght down' her
dead body. After the funeral was over,
however, Mr. Paige did not seem to appre
ciate her at the same value which he put
upon her during the panic and crisis of the
calamity. So he refused topay the reward
on the ground that tike fireman Was bound
to do his official duty, and canki ; not con
tract with a private party for a reward.
The loier 'court sustained this view, but
lovers of fair play and _haters of curmud
geoncy will be glad to lmow that the Su
preme Court reverses this judgment, and
orders the reward paid, because his official
duty did not compel him to risk his own life
in ord7 to rescue others. Firemen, unlike
soldiers; do not contract to risk their lives
in the service.
But although the decision Serves the
mean man right, the soundness of its reason
may be questioned. Firemen are not bound
like soldiem to expose their lives uselessly,
but it licher that if they never risked their
lives their usefulness would be less than it is
now. As a matter of fact they are willing
to do it, and do it every week. Otherwise
fires 'mild get beyond their' itontrol. The
court should have heeded the old judge's
'advice about s court's being generous with
opinions, but Stingy with itereasone, for the
decision may be sound, the reason quite

THE FUR TRADE.
There are very few animals whose fur is
not used in some way--that of the muskrat
(and over 8,000,000 and, sometimes 5,000,-
000 are taken every year) is used in On
manufacture of bats. The New York musk
rats are worth seventy-five cents, whlle.Del.
aware and Maryland produce an itnbiud
worth twice as much. The innocent limusk-.
rat is often utilized by dealers as eft), and
when died so passed upon the public.
Many a lady who boasts okirere black

of a conntry-cousirt, worn by the malodorous
skunk. ;This fur, which is extremely beau
tiful, is well on ibeinarket, and, it is un
necessary to state. `not sold to advantage
under its proper title, but passes Muster
under the above *allonym. They are
used for collars, muffk , etc.,- and somewhat
of an idea can be obtained of the popularity;
of the black marten from the fact that over
350,000 a year are used, and Atilt it is not
safe to crawl 'under d strange barn: Ohio

Cheap grides of furs are made from the
Siberian squirrel, muskrats, rabbits, wild
cats, badger, coon, and even the common
domestic cat,' of which .1,000,000 and _oyez
are killed yearly ; yet the attentive observer
about New York is often reminded and
forced to observe that the supply exceeds
the demand. - Other animals used in. trim

THE MAN IN THE MOON.
The common account of the man in the
moon, that he is the individual whom the
Israelites atoned for gathering sticks on the
Sabbath, is probably only a :remixed ver
sion of a much older story. The earliest
form of the many similar stories seems to be
that the moon as a Man, and a far-seeing
one, his a power over mankind which he
can exercise at will for their hart or punish
ment. In the Edda, the moon takes up two
children, who mitre doing nothing more than
carrying water-pots on their ehouldera. .In
Swabia, children who look out of windiiir
are still sometimes cautioned . against being:
carried off by the man in the moon, nor are
they allowed, in .n of the bAre in the
moon, to make them.e of a hare on the
Ms with their fingers. ; In the same dis
trict, the giant the mini:hi the moon was
simply that of working in his vineyard by
moonlight ; while, according to another vat
,
sion, a woman was taken up for spinning at
her window by moonlight, and her Sax and
hair may still be seen there. To thigi day
this primithe idea te i f sin against the moon
exists in Swab* wEere itis still thought sin:
ful to spin orsew in the moonlight, and it is
'a common thing to hear it mid, " LeaVe off
working or yon will go to the moon."
Stories therefore of the moon which coi
nect the !punishment Si a residence there
with offences against morality or Widen
ordTnanceS, may be supposed tob*ve lest
antiquity/ than themes which connect it with
no sin ate all or with sin against the - moon
itself. For instance, such stories as the Bo
hemian;'sue, that the moon, having warned
a thief gainst stealizi,g peas, took him up
when h persisted in doing Iso ; ortdrs Tyro
lese and German tales, that the moon carried
off a Tamil who bent about at night stick
ing sheep with s:` forks'? who held brambles
before the moon to conceal his - theft of a
horse, of cabbages, cherries, fish oecheese—
ieem to be the adaptation of a more prim':
tire belief to a changed and somewhat ad:
veined State of thought rather than the ex
pressioniof the earliest notions on thei =b
jest. further addition to these stories
u lls
that theif or profane Sabbath.breaker
bears load of cabbages or stick's for all
etersthy; as an:eternal warning to mankin' d,
seems an additional corroboration of this by

and tradesmen, and skilled labor of any and
all descriptions, find employment at ?emu
nemtive conrsation without the slight
difficulty, w e the common laborer at em
ploynient requiring nothing ',beyond main
strength and stupidness is cheerfully paid at
the rate of $4O per month, including board.
Cooks particularly are in great demand and
receive from $6O to, s7s r Ver month. We
refer to - rneri cooks 'who can prepare the
meals by 'an open fire in camp, or more
properly bivouac. Cooks who work for
miners, loggers and surveying "outfits,"
and whale possess the requisite " profession
al" ability.lo boil diihwatei:vitliout scorch
ing it, are 'eagerly, sought after. - and not
always found. Chinamen who are willing
to engage as cooks at a rate of, pay consid
erably less than that mentioned above are
easily obtained; but - nearly ell classes of

THE DEACON'S HIRED MAN.
Lest'Spr.ing a church deacon residing in
all interior town secured a.man of all work
from-Detroit, and the place being an easy
one and the. pay godd, the man was well .
pleased, and took a great interest in his em.
ployer's welfare. Some weeks age the
church to which the 'deacon belongs had to .
send Alm delegates to' meet three fibm
another church to" arrange for a picnic.
Daniel beard the deaCon remark that he ,
would like to be one of the delegates and
that was eriough for him. There was to be
a meeting•of the congregation in the oven-
ing to select the three, and a score of people
had scarcely got togethei when Daniel
walked in, skunmid his hat down and re.
marked : i
" Gentlemen, thiki_canmas will' now come
to order, and by your leave I will act as
Chairman until a_bigger man is appointed:"
• The people were, of coarse, dtanfounded.
but Daniel felt as if he 'was once more on the
heath of the "old ighth Ward," and he
continued :
" Gentlemen, we have met ,to nomixate
three delegates,. and it.will be in :order for
somebody to mention the name of Deacon
Blank as theAlna t."
Nobody did,. and Daniel's dander began to
rise.
"Ah ! This is a cut and dried affair,;'
then, 'id it ?" he roared, as , he gave his hat
another slani, " However, I !_pronounce

Here one of the. members 'arose to make
an explanation, or to ask for one; but Daniel
declared him out of order, and cleared . the'
