" It will cost two hundred dollars, An
na!" said George Blakely to. his young,
proud and extravamant wife. ihe tone in
which he said this Lowed that her request
had Startled him. "I know it well. But
what are two hundred dollars for a dia
mond pin ?" Mrs. Blakeiey's voice was
half contemptuous. "Maiy Bagar's dia
monds cost over a thousand dollars;'
"Just one thousand dollars more than
herhusband could afford to pay for them,"
said Mr. Blakely.
" He's the best judge of that, I pre
sume," retorted his wife.
"lint that doesn't signify. Yon can
not, Anna."
"What do you do with your•money,
Pray ?"
The young wife turned sharply upon
her husband, and her words and tope
stung him into rather a harsh reply. But
this only aroused her anger and made her
more unreasonably - persistent. - •
" 0, very well," said- her too yielding
husband at last, "go to Carnfield's to mor
-row and get -the pin. Tell him to send
in the account on the first of . January
and it will - be paid."
Mrs. Blakely was in earnest. There
was not one of her fashionable acquaint=
maces but had a diamond ring or breast
pin and until she was the owner of one
or both, she could no longer hold up her
head in society. Her- husband was re
ceiving-teller in a bank, at a , salary of fif
teen hundred dollars per annum, when
he married, which was about a year be
fore, and he still occupied the same in
come.. For a young man in his position
he bad not married wisely. The hand
some face and captivating manners of a
dashing belle bewildered his fancy. .
He proposed in haste, was promptly ac
cepted, and led to the marriage altar net
a true woman, -to be transformed into a
true wife, but a weak, capricious, vain crea
ture, incapable of genuine love, and too
selfish and narrow-minded to feel the in
fluence of honorable principles.
An extravagant love for dress and orna
ment characterized her from the begin
ning and she would harken to none of her
husband's gently offered remonstranees.
Nearly luilf of his income she spent dur
ing the first year of their marriage, in
dress and jewelry.
The demand for a two hundred dollar
breast pin, coming upon young Blakely as
it did, at a time when he had just made
the unpleasant - discovery of - it 'deficit in
his income, when compared with his AZ
poses, of several hundred dollars, sadly
disheartened him. But he was not brave
enough to meet the exigency; and there
fore weekly yielded to a demand that
should have been' met by an unflinching
The first of January found Blakely short
of funds by considerable more than the
price to be paid for •the diamond pin.
Camfield's bill came in and must be set
tled. It would not do for him to, hold

jeweler Was an acquaintance of more thin
one of the directors of, the bank s "- and.
questions might be aaked,,nnoi inferences ;
drawn prejudicial to his standing. In an
evil' hour, under: distress , of mind and
strong teMptation, the Young man nude a
_false entry which enabled him to abstrnet
two hundred dollars 'front* the 'funds of
the bank. ,
•This;was only the beginning of defal-,
cations which" ran through, many yea#'
before tbe eiposire came., Which tiliays
follows such a criine. It was easier now
than to supply . the extravagant demands
of his wile whose annual wardrobe, and
bills for jewelry, for which , she bad that
passion which is tbaricieistie:Cf weak
minds, almost reached the full amount Of
his s alary. • -
But, the endgame at last. 'One morn
ing seven years 'from the day they were
married, Mr. and Mrs. Blakely were about
leaving for the opera, when the bell was
rung violently. Mr. Blakely started , and
turned pale with a sudden presentiment
of evil.
" What is the matter?" asked his wife,
Who saw the singular changeiri his coun
Mr.Blakely did not answer; but stood
listening at the door.. Men's voices were
now heard, and tread of lnutirY feet along
the passage. Thine was a attrratid a bur
ried "movement by Blakely; he then stood
still as if riveted to the spot.
- ". Who are they? what is the meaning
of this ?" asked Mrs.' Blakely in alarm.
At the same moment two Alien entered
the room. .
" You are arrested," said done of them ;
"on a charge of defalcation."
Mrs. Blakely shrieked, but her husband
stood still and, his face of an
ashen hue. .
" George, George ! This , is false,' ex
claimed Mrs. Blakey, recovering herself.
"You could not stoop to - crime!"
It is true," he answered, in a low and
despairing voice. Then laying ouo of his
angers On the diamond pin that glittered
on her bosom, he added speaking to her
alone— - •
"You gained that at the price of your
husband's dishOnor You demanded it.
I remonstrated and said I.could not afford
so costly an ornament. You repeated
foiii - dediands, and I; weak fool that Was,
permitted the contraction of a debt that
could only be cancelled by dishonest
means. I thought, when I married you,
that Iliad obtained a wife'whose virtues
might help me upward to Heaven, but
you have proved only a tempting fiend,
dragging me daily nearer and nearer the
brink of destruction, over which I now
fall to helpless ruin. I have robbed the
bank, but it was for you!" •
Then turning to the officers he said, in
a calm voice—
" I am' at your service." •
The words of her husband had stunned
Mrs, Blakely. She never saw bim after
wards. That night he passed to his ac
count before a higher tribunal than au
earthly one, and she was left in poverty
and disgrace.
. The story is one of every day life. Geo.
Blakely is the representative of a class.
Not all of them rob banks, or defraud
their employers. But all of them sup
port idle, extravagant wives in costly es
tablishments—Costly in comparison with
their means—spend more than their earn
ings or profits, and fail in the end to pay
their just obligations.
A. modern young lady, fashionably edu
caied, and with modern, notions of style,
fashion and domestic equipments, is alto
gether to costly an article for a young
man of small means or a moderate salary.
Diamond:pins, rich silks and laces, rose
wood furniture, six,- seven, eight or nine
hundred dollar houses, opera balls, fash
ionable parties, Saratoga and Newport,
and success in business, are altogether out
of the question. Itycung men would
-unite the latter and matrimony, they must
look into another circle for wives. A girl
who is independent enough to earn her
own living as a teacher or with a needle,
is a wife vforth a score of such butterflies
ofefashion ; a rising young mar, .who has
only his industry to rest upon for success
in !Vela a fool to marry any other. Use
ful iudustry is always honorable.
'noughts In a Saw 111111.
Happening recently ,to visit, a large
and well managed saw Mill in a rural dis
trict, we were much struck with the econ
omy of time, labor, power . and material
which was there exhibited. The water
power, more than sufficient to drive the
main saw, was, applied to lathes, drills,
and circular saws, the latter of different
sizes.; The log out,of which board and
plank were sawed, was of course first dress
ed of its outside outs, or "slabs."
refuse,_ as far as boards are concerned,
were immediately cut up into necessary
lengths, and then inn into_ "chair stuff.'
Thence the sawed stuff went to the lathes;
and thence to the drilla. Thence such
as required, bending were carried to be
steamed into ductility, and, driven into a
frame which
_gave them .the. requisite
curve, were placed in the sun- to dry;
