This human nature story well illus

or suicide.

Mr. Luke Darcy shut the door of his
bedroom with considerable emphasis,
and went straight to the breakfast par
All washriglit and quiet the pleas
ant—Bedlam was n't located just there,
and Mr. Darcy wont stormingly up the
stairs to the nursery.
Ali ! the field of battle was reached at
last, Mrs. DareY sat in a chair trying to
quiet the screams of an eight months old
baby Scion of the house of Darcy, while
a rosy boy of five lay'on his back; kick
ing and crying in an ungovernable fit of
childish passion. '', •
"' '
Mrs Darcy !" enunciated. Luke,
with aloud an omnious precision, "may I
inqure what all this -means ? .;do you
know that breakfast is waiting ?" •
," I know Luke—l know,"; said - poor,
perplqed, Mrs. Darcy, striving vainly
to lift the struggling, child up by one
arm. " Come Freddy go, up and get
washed." •
"'No-o-0 , 0 l" roared Master Freddy,
.performing a brisk 'tatto on the carpet
with his heels, and cla j wing at the air a l t
a furious rate.
Like an avenging 'vulture Mr. Darcy
pounced on his son and heir, carrying
him to the closet and turned the key on
his screams.
" Now sir you can cry it out at your
leiaure. Evelyn, the nurse is Waiting
for the baby. We'll go down to breali
fast."-,-- `C . )
" But Luke," hesitated Mrs.; Darcy,
" you won't leave Freddy there !"
" It's temper that's at the bottom of
these demonstrations, and I'll , conquer
that temper or know the reason why. It
ought to have boon eheckedlong ago but
yen are so ridiculously indulgent."
"But if he'll only say: ho is sorry,
Mr. Draoy tanned .sharply at the pail
1101s of the door. ', • ,
" Are you sorry for, your naughtiness,
young man?"
A fresh outburst of screams rind a re
newal of A tatto was the answer.. •
P.Lom sure he is sorry, Luke,"pleaded
.liis'inotlfbr, but. Mr. : Darcy 'shook his
head: „ •

I will listen to,"le said shortly."
Evelyn with a dewy moisture shadow
ing -her eyelids, and. a l - dull ache, at her
hearticollowed her , liege '.lord :doWn to

A tall, blue eyed young lady with
bright chestnut ,and cheeks like a

Luke sat do\vit his coffee cup with •u
sharp click.
" you have very peculiar exPressOns,
Miss Pruyn.'!
" Very true ones," said Miss Clara, sau-
,Evelyn smiled in spite of herself..
" It's only Freddy who feels a little
cross, and—"
" A little cross I" interrupted the. in
dignant husband. " I tell you, Evelyn,
it is quite time it was checked, Oh, that
parrot I what an eternal screeching ho
keeps up I Maly, .take that bifd into the
kitchen, or I shall be tempted to wiing
his neck. What dOes ail these — eggs
Mr. Darcy gave his egg, shell and all,
a vindictivethrow upon the grate. -
"And the plates are as cold as a steam,
when I've implored again and again that
they. might be warmed. Well, I shall
eat no breakfast this morning."
" Whom will you punish most?" de
manded Miss Clara. •
Luke pushed his chair back' with a
vengence, and took •up his stand with
his back to the 11M.
"Please, sir," said the servant, &pre ,
catingly advancing, "the gait bill—the
man says would you settle it while—" .
"No I" roared Luke, tempssiuouslY,-
"Tell the man to go about his business;
I have no small change this morning."
Mary retreated precipitately ; Clam
raised her long; brown eyelashes.
"Do you know,. Luke," she said' de
murely, "I think you would feel bettor
if you would do just as Freddy doeslie
flat down on the floor and kick up your
heels against the carpet Tor a' while."
Liike gave his infichievous sister-in
law a.glance that ought certainly to have
annihilated her, and walked out of the
room, closing the door behind -him With
a bang that would bear no false interpre
tation. Then Clara came round to her
sister, and buried her pink face in Eve
lyn's neck.
"Don't geoid me, my Evy, please, I
know I have linen naughty to tease Luko
so I"
"You have • spoke nothing but the
truth," said Evelyn, quickly. "Clara,
sometimes I wonder how I can endure
the daily cross of my-husband's temper."
"Temper I" said Clara, with a toss of
her chesnut brown hair. " And the poor,
dear-fellow _basn' Cthe least- idea how-dis-
agreeable ho makes himself:"
"Only this morning," said Evelyn; "be

Evelyn's merry, irresistible laugh was

in Clara's blue eyes.

"Nonsensii !" laughed Dire. Darcy,
rising from the breakfast table in oWl
once to her husband's peremptory .sum
mons from above stairs.
Luke was standing in front of his bu
reau drawer, flinging shirts, collani,
vats, and stockings recklessly upon the
bedroom floor. .

articles. "You were at the bureau last,
Luke. It iirYour O fault I"
"My fault—of course it's my fault I"
snarled Luke, giving Mrs. Darcy's poo
dle alcick that sentit howling to its mis
tress. "Anything but a Woman's retort
ins and recriminating tongue. Mre: Dar
cy, I wont endure it any longer!" .
"Neither will I !" said Evelyn, reso;
lutely advancing, as her husband plunged
into the closet for his business coat, and
promptly shutting and locking the door r j
"I think I have endured it quite long
enough— and here is an end of it I"
"Mrs. Darcy opened 'the door !" said
Luke, scarcely able to credit the evidence
of his own senses.
I shall do no such thing," said Mrs.
Darcy, composedly, beginning to rear
range shirts, stockings, and flannel wrap
pers in their approPriate receptacles. .
"Mrs. Darcy," roared Luko at a fever
heat . ocimpotont rage, "what on earth
do You Mean?" •
"I mean to, keep you in that clothed
press, Mr. Darcy, until you have made
up your mind to' come out in a more
amiable frame of mind."
There was a dull silinice of full sixty
seconds in the closet, then a' sudden out
buret of vocal wrath.
"Mrs. Darcy, open tho door; this .in
stant, madam . I"
But Evelyn went on humming a sancy
little air and arranging her clothes. • .
"Do you hoar me?"
" - Yee, I hear'
" VI ill you-obey me ?"
"Not until you have solemnly prom
ised ino to`, put smile sort of control on
that temper of yours ; not until you pledge

"No? Ilion in that caeo I hope you

Mr. Darcy winched a little at - the fa,
railiar souuttof his Own words. ,
Tard tapl tapi came softly on the
door. Ifirs,..Darey composedly opened it
and saw her husband's little office boy::

" Evoly,u," said Luke in it subdued
voice, " will you open the door P" _

"'And wliat it that 2" '

"My temper, indeed," sputtered out
Luke. .
" Just your timpor," returned • his
wife, " W ill you promise ?"
Never, nth.dam."
Mrs. Darcy took up a pair of hose that
required mending, and prepared toleavo
the apartment. ' As the door creaked on
its hinges, however, A voice came shrilly
through the opposite keyhole.
" Mrs: Darcy, Evelyn,

" I am."
" Well - look hero—l promise."
" Al), , and everything I require ?"
" Yes all and 'everything you require,

Wisely deaf to the muttered sequel,
Mrs. Darcy opened the door, and Mr.
Darcy walked out, looking right over the
top of her-shining brown hair.
Suddenly a little detaining hand was
put on his coat sleeve.
" Luke, dear ?" _
" Well?"

From tPlanam's Magazine.
The purest and most transparent ice
of the Nova was chosen for the quarry ;
largo blocks wore then cut and squared
by rule and compass, then carved with
ornamental designs, as carefully and
skillfully as if they hadbeen marble. Af
ter they had been cut and carved , with
the greateit accuracy,, each block was
raised by orano and pully,t, At the Very
moment of lowering it to its destined
positionoa small quantity of water was
thrown on the bleak below. The precise
quantity of water was regulated as if it
was so much mortar ;' if tee:munch was

simple character, and divided into
compartments by pilasters. In six of
these compartments were largo windows
the framework of which wore painted tO

.Tho ice took the;
paint perfectly: Tho panes were' thin,
sheets of ice beautifully smooth, and:al
so as transparent as the most costly of
gins's. The central diVision projected so
as to form a doorway, sUrmOntecl by a
Boman arch and appropriate architeCtu
nd ornaments. On each side of the door
stood a static of ice, on a high pedestal,
and in front was an approach of several
steps, This apparent door was in reali

window on a level witty thefloor. An or

these cannons there was 'a largo size
mortar, on each side of the entrance, of
It size prepared for steps ef .80 pounds..
In advance of these mortars '.stood two
neatly carved ,podestals or'olphins: _ To

Empress and her court came to admire

palace itself shone like ono • vest gem ok

and so peculiar the blue tint of the fab-,

dolphins, the elephant, every leaf, flow

glittering with - the ever changing bril

crimson, green, golden lights. •

The enchanted portal opened and the
Empress entered a vestibule, whence ap
peared a lefty room- on either side.- In
the drawing room stood . a tablp appa
rently marble, supporting a liandsome
eloch, whose icy wheels daintily eat, ap
peared beneath the transparent case.
Largo statues filled' the corners of the
rooms. i3ottetra and sofas, handsomely
carved, stood on either side, nor wore
chairs, foot stools, and other smaller
pieces of furniture wanting. The sleeping
room, or what appeared-as-such, on* the
opposite side of the vestibule,, was even
more luxuriantly furnished. There was
a grand state bedstead, with its appro- I

above all, finely woven curtains

maw seen sporting a stream of burning
naptha, a fire like spray, high in the air. •
while a man concealed in. the . hollow
body of the animal, by blowing pipes,
succeeded in imitating the real roar of
the animal. Within. the palace, the icy
candles smeared with naptha, were
lighted, without molting, and the icy logs
'in the fire place were lighted in the same'
way, • • • .
A beautiful moonlight, view, on still
another occasion, was most charming,
from the . 4rystal like *character 'of the
palace and its garden, reflecting n• thou
sand silvery like rays. Then, again,
fresh falls of snow gave a new charm to
the spectacle, as every architectural or
nament, every twig, and loaf, was dain
tily marked by the white feathery flakes
of a soft even down, more puns than that
of the ice on which they ,fell.
Through the long winter of St.. Petert

days of March, the icy wonder stood' on

when I "settled doWn," recintli; was by
a gentleman who said he was an 'assessor,
and "connected• with .the Dnitnd States
Internal Row:mini Department. I t Said

him, allthe same:—would he sit
Ho 'eat doven. I did not know anything
particular to say, nnd yet I felt that peo

_at the dignity „ of
keeping house -must be conversational,
inuat be easy and sociable in company.
Bo in default of anything else to say, I
asked him if ho Was opening hts_slin - p in

He said ..ho wss. [I did not wish to
appear ignorant/. but I had hoped tie
vvouldmontion what he bad for-sale.]
I • venial's& to; ask ' him "hoe 'was

That seunded pretty complacent, .but
barring that natural expression
of vil
lainy which we all have, the man looked
honest enough.
I do not know hew it came abouti,ex

along as comfortably as
We talked, and' talked, and talked—, ,

But all the time, I had my presence of

out all about his business in spite of
obscure answers—and I was determined ,

",Possible: 1 if there's any mistalto it

Then the gentleman got up to go.' It
came over . me most uncomfortably ,that
maybe Lhad niado my revolationti for
nothing, 'besides 'being- flattered into
stretching the& ; considerably by'', the
stranger's astonished acclamations. 'But
no ; at tho last moment the 'gentleman
handed me a largo envelope, and said it
- contabeed hia adyerfisoment ; and I
would. find out all about his buoinoas in
it ; and that ho would be. 'happy to hay°
my custom—would, in fact, be proud to
have the custom of a man of such pro
digious income ; and that he used to
think there were several wealthy men in
Buffalo, but when ho had come to trade
with them he found that'they had barely
enough to live on ; and it had been such
,a weary, weary age since be had seen a
'rich man face to face, And talked with
him, and toughed him with, his bands ;
that ho could barely refrain from emu

.This so pleasedmo that I did not try
to resist, bat allowed thiii simple hearted
stranger to throw his - arms about ;me,

Inquiry No. 1 covered my case is gener
ously and as amply as - an umbrella could
cover an ant hill :
" What wore your profit/Iln 1869, from
any trade, business, or vocation, wherev
er carried on ?"
And that inquiry was, backed up by
thirteen others of an equally searching
nature, tho' most modest of which re
quired information .as to - whether I bad
committed any burglary, or highway rob
bery, or by any arson or other secret
-source of emolument, bad acquired prop
erty which was not enumbrated in my
statement of income as sot opposite to
inquiry No. 1. '
It was pain that that stranger had en
able& me to make an ass of myself. It
was very, very plain, and I wont out and
hired another artist. By working on my,
vanity. the stranger had seduced me into
declaring an income of $214,000.- `By
law, $l,OOO of thin was exempt:from in
come, tai—the only relief I could see,
and--it-was, only a drop in the ocean:
At the legal five per cent., I must pay
over to the government the appalling sum
of ten thousand six hundred and fifty
dollars, income tax. .
[l'inay, remark, in this place, that I
did not do it.]
I am acquainted with -a very opulent
man, Whose house is a palace,
.whose. ta
hie is regal, whose outlays are enor
mous, yet a man who has no incoine,'as
I haye often noticed by the'reyenuo re,
turns ; and to him I went for advice in
my distress. Ho took ray dreadful exhi
bition of receipts, ho put. .on his glasses;
hitook his pen, and presto I I was a pan.' was the neatest thing that ever
was. Ho did it simply by deftly mani
pointing the bill of "DEDUCTIONS." He
sot down my "State, national, and mun-
Jcipal taxes" at se much ; my. "losses by
ill'ATO;*, --- _ - ect," at so much; my
"losses on sales of real estate"—"on live
stock sold"-- , -on" payments for rent of
homestead"—on "repairs, improve
ments, interest"—on "previously taxed
-salary as an officer of the United States
army, navy, revenue-service," and other
things. He got astonishing "deduc
tions". out of each and every ono of them.
And when he was. done. he handed me
the paper, and I saw at glance, that
during the year 1869 my income, in the
way of profits, has bosh oite. thousand
two hundred and fifty dollars and fifty
" Now,"said he, " the thousand dol
lars is exempt by law. What you want
to do is to swear this document in,
.and pay tax on the two hundred -and
, flftY dollars."
While ho was making this speech his
:little boy Willy lifted
. a two dollar green
back out of his vest pocket and vanished
with_it,-and ho-would bet anything that
if any stranger was to call on that little
.boy - to-morrow - he would make a false

. Do you,' said I, "do you always
work up the ' deductions' after this
fasitiort_itLyour case,'sir ?"
" Welll, should say so I If it weren't
for those eleve'ri saving clauses under the
head of deductions,' I should bo beg
gared every year to suppOrt this _hateful
and wicked, this extortidnate and ty
ranical government."
This gentleman stands away up among
the very best of the solid men of Buffalo,,
the men of royal weight, of commercial
integrity, of unimpeachable social, spot
lessness—and so I bowed to his example.
, I went up to the Revenue office, andun

till my immortal soul was toted inches

Coquetry is born of vanity. The delz

human Nveakuess, though perhaps not

back, 'like' chickens, to roost in 'after

In mon, " it exhibits itself in various
Shapes: With some it is perceptible iu
an ovorwoaning. love •f admiration ; in
others, in a handsome face, an inordinate
love of self, a fine figure; a faultless
moustache; a diiimond breast pin, and in.
in an over estimate of natural endow.
In women, it is displayed, in articles
of dress, in personal charms, a pretty
foot, a taper„waist, a good voice for .tho
and a restless desire to win
admimtion, love, esteem, and • when
chievod, to triflo with the objects by

-Domestic education, early training,
pernidious associations, habits, &0., have
much to do in gi'ving birth to and in feed
ing this passion for flirting. , Yet, looked
upon by many as a fashionahlo foible, if

they are too frequently made tho cover
for the most disastrous and venal offences.

granted we are necessarily forded• to the
conclusion that the majority. is largely
.irr favor of the former. And, by the
same process of „reasoning, we are
equally impelled to, place the.female flirt
in the latter category. The woman flirt .
Is a veritable devil. At hoWever early
an age she may commence her career of
deception—and her whole artificial life
from girlhood to the grive is but allying
lie"-when'she has glutted her insatiable
appetite and deserted her victim, she in
variably leaves a subtle poison in her
trail. In practising hor' arts In early
maidenhood this poison, as deadly as the
venom, of the rattlesnake; rankle's deep
est, and its effects -are more enduring
than in after life.
Many a youth raerges , into manhood
With a seared heart, his manly, trusting
nature' blighted and grown callous to the
finer feelings from being jilted by a
heartless young flirt. She thinks not,
can form no idea of the cruelty she in-

rifled to her heartless coqiietry. Nor
IoOS she realise what the uonsegtiences
maybe to herself.
Most young mob feel flattered at the
seeming preference shown them- by a
pretty woman particularly when her
beauty is associated with intellect° and
ornate accomplishments; but the larger
portion soon learn to estimate the'-dis.
pensers of these coquetries at their
proper worth—they despise' while they
iibfoss to love.
She acquires a name and
,a fame es an
accomplished flirt.. The brand is indeli
bly stamped upon her
. brow, and go
whither she will she is pointed at, spoken
of, contemned, ridiculed. Though she
may elicittlie pity of a charitable feed,
the hearts of thii many are steeled
against her for evermore.
The female flirt is seldom troubled
with and as seldom mends her
ways. Coquetry becomes a passion with'
her, and the habit; like the feeling of
jealousy, grows by what it feeds upon.
In the course of time it ripens into a dis
ease, and her own cruel heart is made
the victim ; its tender instincts are des
-troyert.its general impulses withered," by
the cankeririg poison: . Time flits by, ,
and youth, and innocence, and happiness
pass away with it. Forced bite a real
izing souse of the position she 'occupies
in society, she entertains serious thoughts
of matrimony., She has too much pride,.
if she can ordain it otherwise, to live nd
die an old maid ;' and seeks to elipugle
someone of_ber male acquaintanen into
a matrimonial alliance. Well versed in
all the arts of dissimulation she succeeds
at last in captivating some unsuspecting
noddle, who, like herself,: is gifted with
more self conceit than brains, aad eventu
ally marries, for money, a position in
society, or from unavoidable necessity.
As a married woman She launges into
every - speciiiißiTaFraiiiiiiek - phinges
into the vortex of fashionable dissipa
tion, and fdr a briiif season becomes a
-dazzling centre of feinale attraction._
Meanwhile her wedded victim has been
weaned from any little affection he may
have entertained .for her. The scales
have fallen from his eyes, and with them
the personal charnis .that lured him to
his destiny. Fable hair, teeth, bust,
figure, and a false heart, inspire him
with loathing and disgust. _Mutual re
crimination follows, and if there are,
children, they; toe, aro made partici
pants in the domestic unhappiness of
their parents.
At length the curtain falls ; the beau

Alexander Selkirk, a Fifeshire man,
bred up to the sea, started off abotit the
beginning . of the , last century on a voy
age to America, half commercial , and
half piratidal, in a way - much in fashion
in. those days. Captain Stradling, the.
cot:amender of the ship, having taken
some offense against Selkirk, put him on
shore on the uninhabited island of Juan_
Fernandez, with no day's food, a sea
chest, clothes, bedding, a little tobacco;
a few books and nautical instruments,
some powder and ball, dgun, knife, ox,
and a kettle or boiler. Thus was the
lonely Scot,. on a September day in,1704, '
left to shift- for himself, on an island
about eighteen miles long by six broad
and at least four hundred miles distant
from the nearest mainland ( the Pacific
coast of South America.) When he re
'covered' from the first feeling of dismay
and - despondency, he sot to work. and
built- two huts of pimento wood, one as
a kitchen; he' roofed them with long
grass, and by degrees gave them a warm
lining of goat skins. Strips of the
same kind of-.wood-supplied him with
are and light, burning very clear, and
emitting an agreeable, fragrant odor.
His chief food was boiled goats' flesh
and crawfish, seasoned with pimiento
fruit, but sadly in need of a little salt,
of which he had none save the brackish,
bitter. salt of sea water. When his
clothes were worn out he.made goat skin
garments, using a nail for a needle, and
narrow Strips of bark or skin for thread.
As'for shoes,he soon learned to do with
nut- theta altogether. Many - Cate 'and
goats were fbund on the island ; the fim- -
mer,helped to nere away the rats,. which
- at-first were very -troublesord ; while the
goats served him as playfellewi and as a
supply of food. While his ammunition
lasted i he - shot -down:thergoataTWhenit
was exhausted, he caught them by run
ning; and so expert,did he become, that
he could mud down any of them. One°
he foll c ovar aprecipice — while - Alma on
and-onlY escaped destruction by
falling on the animal on the beach , be
low. During his stay on the island, ha
appropriated five hundred goats to food
and clothing, and sot free another five
hundred after marking them on the ears.
(Thirty years afterward, when Anson's
crew landed on ther- island, the first goat
they shot was ono Of those which Selkirk,
had thus marked.) . When his knife was
worn out, he forged others from old iron
hoops. Thus did the lonely man pass
four years arid four months ; when, in
February, 1709, he was reactiedty a.ves
tel by Captain Weeders Rog
ars. Although he had some difficulty in
returning to the heo of his speech, and,
in reconciling himself to the ship's pro
visions and usages, he gradually became
fitted to not as mate to the ship in whish
he returned to England in 1711.'/
