yERY SHORT STORY
In MY ill-health I have had a dream
or vision, and I meant° tell it. , Prelude,
there is none required, so I shall begin.
I dreaint that my wife and I Were sit
ting alone in the breakfast room in the
wide Amuse we inhabit. Marian had
given me my cup of coffee not in , the
most gracious of moods; it was hardly
her fault, I confess, for I had been bard
to please this particular morning. - We
went to,a party - last evening ; we went
because we were asked—not because we
wished to go. - Marian thonghtwe ought
net to refuse, so I consented, ready -to
humor her. She does not like to give
up the society to which she has been
accustomed, and I cannot force 'her to
I'Ve went; and we came back in a
bad temper. Somehow or other, we
have had more differences—l will not
.say squabbles—of late than I have ever
known before. And yet 'cannot accuse
Marian of being generally ill-natured,
or ever pifssionate. And for myself,
there used to be people with whom I
could agree perfectly—perhaps there are
now, somewhere. It seems that my
wife and I don't get on together as well
as wife and husband should. What can
be the cause ;
Alas; there is not much difficulty in
assigning a cause. The reason is not far
to seek.: 1 am confessing to myself that
which I dare nottellmy nearest friends;
Marian was never meant for me, and I
Mites nex.m_meant for Marian- , me. do
oortake advice-too-often—that is not
the way of the world—butl think Itook
advice on one occasion, the mostimpor
tant of all my life, when I ought to have
decided for m3-self.
• I was not very rich, and perhaps not
very wise, and friends of mine consid
ered that as Marian was both, I could
obtain no more suitable wife.- They
thought that she and I were exactly fit
ted each for the other. She rich, I with
a very moderate fortune; I not very
wise; she certainly not foolish. I sup
pose both of Us knew something of the
world; Marian at any rate, knew quite
as much of it as I wished my wife to
There was somebody else for whom I
had a preference; somebody else whose
merest word" filled my heart with joy,
whenever I was lucky enough to hear
it; whose lightesttouclithrilledthrough
my frame. I knew her perfectly well;
I recognized each tone of the varying
voice. Over that face of hers no :ex
presshin that was new to me could pss.
I knew that all so well that each 'ex
pression was but as another page of a
well-loved, well-remembered book—a
book that could not open but I knew
The girl's name was Ethel; and she
Was the only girl I had ever loved.
When her gray eyes—pure, deep, serene
—fell upon my own, the light of them
entered into my very soul. I thought I
would have given my life, with all the
years that lay before me; given all my.
prospects and hopes—such as they were
—to know that that girl wasmine. For
her sake I thought I could have met
death willingly. I thought so then;
but, my God, Thou knowest that I de
ceived myself—that my strength failed
me in the trial hour I passed through.
Thou knowest that Ishrunk, conquered.
I wanted to have Ethel for my own, and
I said so. It was opposed. I spoke
more strongly; but the opposition be
came stronger too. Anxiety did its
work.. 111-health came upon me. -And
in an evil moment—that I curse (in
wardly I remember) to this hour—l
yielded. A month or two afterward
Marian was my wife. I resolved to do
by her as well as I could; I shouldhave
been a brute to think ofdoiug otherwise.
She should have no cause to complain
if I could help it. Henceforth she and I
were to live together, each for the other.
Henceforth Ethel was nothing to me
' Was that possible?
I thought it possible then ; secure of
the victory which mind might gain
over heart. There were good reasons—
plausible :reasons, at least—for my mar
rying Marian ; and as I had made the
bargain I would keep it. I had perfect
confidence that my wife would do her
part.: She had always commanded my
respect; but my love- 7 that • is ' quite
another affair. - For as the poet, the
greatest poet of Our day, says : -
But we got along pretty well together
—Marian and I. Our life, looked at by
itself, was not so very miserable• but
compared with the life that might have
been mine with Ethel, it was not life at
all. Still it went on, and kept its even
tenor. The passing days brought with
them what are considered pleasures—for
me, I hardly found them pleasures at
all. The passing days brought with
them no acute pain; there was only a
dull aching at my heart—a void that
nothing was likely to fill. Isupposed I
had forgotten Ethel.
But I found that I had not; and I found
it out on the morning that we sat at
breakfast together—Marian and I—as I
said at the beginning of these words I
Marian knew nothing about her; she
had scarcely heard her name; and if
by chance she should hear it, she knew
of no reason for keeping it from me.
My wife reads the Morning Post daily
at breakfast time; and she tells me some
of its contents, as I dawdle over my cof
fee. On the morning lam speaking of,
she read.two or three paragraphs to me.
The last she read happened to be the
first that caught, my atteAffon. it was
fhe following ••
"'We iniiieistand that a 'marriage has

been arranged between Capt, Cecil of
the 110th Regiment, son of Bernard
Cecil, Esq., of Boddington Park, Bucks,
and'Miss Ethel Webbe, only daughter
of Algernon Webbe, Esq., of Inverness
Terrace, Hyde Park."
The sudden mention of her name,
and the intelligence that accompanied
it, made my heart stop beating at first
and then set it throbbing with a rush of
blood to my cheek and brow. My wife
looked at me, and afterward limited at
my wife. She must have read the story
in the expression of my face at that mo
ment, I felt that my old love for Ethel
was confessed, obvious, undeniable.
Bur what was there to desire to deny?
A man seldom marries the first woman
for whom he cares. A man's wilt" will
think' no worse of him when she knows
he has had other attachments; but
then these attachments should not be
lasting. 'Your wife will scarcely care
even to pity your queen dethroned ; but
if, ;in your inmost heart, that queen
reigns still, your wife—in discovering
the fact,-will waste no love 'upon her.
co I thought—if I thought at
Marian looked at me across the break
fast table. And I thought, also, what a
wretched failure this had been, this
-joining of hands—for Marian and for
me—when the hearts could never be
joined! Our lives had been different
from the beginning; and reality, if not
in appearance, they must be different to
the end. True union we might look for,
seek after, but in vain.

MINNESOTA -ITS ADVANTAGES
BY AN OBSERVER
At this time, when thousands ate
about to start out in search of new
homes,when the fertile plains and wood
lands of the west are rapidly filling up
with actual settlers, and when the best
of .these lauds are being bought, or
"filed on" as homesteads by emigrants,
(mainly from Europe, so far as Minneso
ta is concerned)a word concerning the
merits and demerits of this State may
not be out of place.
The writer of this article was in the
State early in September last, and had
a fair opportunity of seeing the various
crops either before or just after harvest,
of seeing also the degree of cultivation
deemed necessary by the settlers to
produce the crops, and was at some
pains to ascertain average costs and
yields per acre, as compared with older
States. Such a blessed thing as perfec
tion in all points does not belong to any
State or country so far as known, and
Minnesota is not Utopia, although it
has its strong points in favor of the
tler ; whether these are more than sul4l-1
cient to offset the drawbacks, is a ques
tion every emigrant must decide for
And firstly, as to the disadvantages
To put it Mildly, we may say that the
winters are cold, long, and hard. It is
no uncommon occurrence for the mer
cury to freeze during a " cold snap,"
and the thermometer has been known
to indicate 56' below zero at St. Paul,
while farther north the cold was still
more intense; but this was very unu
sual, even for Minnesota. Last winter
was a very cold one and the coldest
point reached was 46' below 0 on the
open prairie, while in the timber it was
milder by 10 degrees. Yet, men worked
in the lumber woods during the coldest
weather, and came through without a
frost bite, having suffered less, as they
declared, than while working in the
open air at the east with the weather
30° warmer. This is owing to the dry
ness of the atmosphere as well as its be
ing more fully supplied with oxygen ;
but after all, the intense cold is a -draw
back, and no light one either. Another
drawback is the abundance and viru
lence of poisonous insects. An intelli
gent settler who had been sonic ten
years in the State told me that if he
could have all the nuisances in the
State placed in two budgets, one of
which should contain storms, tornadoes,
cold and drought, the other to contain
only mosquitoes, he wonld gladly ban
ish the latter, and accept the rest with
thankfulness. They are a torment,
from early dawn until dark, but no lon
ger; for, unlike our own, they have the
decency to retire at early bed time, and
do not present their bills after business
hours. The wood-ticks, of which there
are three varieties, need watchfulness,
and care in extracting, but they are on
ly dreaded by women and children; one
variety with a dark, oblong body, is to
some extent poisonous, and - I have seen
a lady, who pulled one hastily from her
arm last June—with the arm still un
healed in December.
The storms of Minnesota are some
times fearful. They are usually aeconi
panied by almost incessant 11m3lies of
lightning and continual, crashing peal,
of thunder that are a little trying to
weak nerves, but the damage by -itorm..
is much less, and the storms are des vi
olent, than in Illinois, lowa, Wisconsin,
or Nebraska. There are no instance.3of
1 entire villages destroyed by tornadoe.
in this State, as has been done in \Vis
cousin and lowa.
The State is notoriou4 well Ara erod,
and yet, a farmer going from among the
exuberant spring's and streams of norili
em Pennsylvania would be apt to tind
fault on that point. The small streams
are often marshy, trifling affairs,,diill
cult to get at even in warm weather,
and of little avail when the ice is throe
or four feet thick; the "Jame and
lakes too, are often unavailable, and,
on a majority of farms more or less re
sort must be had to the well, with has
all farmers know is a tedious mule
watering stock, especially as the wells
are all more or less liable to in e4e.—
Then, the wateris hard, ice!) hard, and
must be softened before it will do to
wash with; and the lakes and streams
furnish water to the full as hard the
wells. This of course is a trial to the
patience of housekeepers. On the w hole,
however, the country is well watered,
anti one thing can be said of it that
cannot be said of the water of any other
western State; it is all, even the water
in the slues and marshes, free from mi
asmatic poison and wholesome Marin k.
Now, these disadvantages may be
troublesome and annoying, but they are
such as may be fared and " got along
with" by people of ordinary Yankee
thrift and energy, while the main ad
vantages desired by emigrants are to he
found, perhaps, in as great perfection
in thiS 'z-,tate as at any other point of
Firstly, a; to climate. Health:t, ,to -t
decidedly so. There is no disease inci
dent to thisclimate, except rheumatism,
to which hard working men are mete
or less subject, as they are in all cold
countries, and no more so in Minnesota
than in northern Pennsylvania. I found
a large proportion of the older settlers
who had been induced to emigrate to
that particular region in the hope of re
gaining lost health, and in almost e% cry
instance the hope had been reali7eil.—
Many who had dragged them-elves
thither from the east so enfeebled a, to
be utterly incapacitated for work, men
tat and physical, are now robust, healthy
and energetic, and of course loud In
their praises of the land which has elv
en them a new lease of life. To the in
dividual who is troubled with incipient
asthma, bronchitis, catarrhal affection,
or any of the various throat and lima
disorders supposed to be induci‘ e
consumption, Minnesota holds out more
of premise than an entire medical col
lege; but to the man who really ha dis
eased lungs, the climate is generall', :A
tli/ in a marvelously short time " be
cause," said an old settler, "our air is
too strong and healthy for tutscei'er/
lungs—it melts 'em down." Thereto=
a quaint shrewdness in the remark that
came near the truth. Of all calmmtie--
that can befall a family of emig eant. ,
sickness in a land of strangers, and lar
from medical aid at that, is about the
worst; and other things being equal,
the healthiest location is the te.,l
