MBE Wonderful flexibility and great com
j_ fort and pleasure to any I dy wearing the
Duplex Elliptic Skirt will be experienced par
ticularly in all crowded assemblies, operas,
carriages, railroad cars, church pews, arm
chairs, for promenade and house dress, as the
skirt can be folded when in use to occupy a
small place as easily and conveniently as a
silk or muslin dress, an invaluable quality in
crinoline not found in any single spring skirt.
A lady having enjoyed the pleasure, comfort
and great convenience of wearing the Duplex
Elliptic steel spring skirt for a. single day, will
never afterwards willingly dispense with their
use. For children, misses, and young ladies
they are superior to all others.
They will not bend or break like the Single
Spring, but will preserve their perfect and
grace shape when three or four ordinary skirts
will have been thrown aside as useless. The
hoops are covered with double and twisted
thread, and the bottom rods are not only double
springs, but twice (or double) covered ; pre
venting them from wearing out when dragging
down steps, stairs, &c.
The Duplex Elliptic is a great favorite with
311 ladies and is universally recommended by
the Fashion Magazines as the standard skirt of
the fashionable world.
To enjoy the following inestimable advanta
ges in crinoline, viz: superior quality, perfect
manufacture, stylish shape and finish, flexibil
ty, durability, comfort and economy, enquire
or J. W. BRADLEY 'S Duplex Elliptic or
Double spring Skirt, and be sure you get the
CAUTION :—To guard against imposition be
particular to notice that skirts °flared as "Do
'Lex" have the red ink stamp, viz: "J. W.
Bradley's Duplex Elliptic Steel Springs," upon
the waistband—none others are genuine. Also
notice that every hoop will admit a pin being
passed through the centre, thus revealing the
two (or double) springs braided together there
in, which is the secret of their flexibility and
strength, and a combination not to be found in
any other Skirt.

skirts are sold, throughout the United States

Why the King's English should be SD
miserably bungled in talking to a baby.,
is a question unanswerable to all save
mothers themselves. We opine that
the production referred to is descriptive
of the home scene that takes place when
the mother's work is overcome by the
artless cunning of the "darling sweet,"
and she snatches it rapturously from
among its playthings on the floor, to
kiss and talk to it. Here it is :

STICK TO YOUR BUSINBSS.-0110 great
principle for success in business is learn
ing a trade well and sticking to it. It
requires a long time to know everything
connected with successful business. An
acquaintance, seed dealer, stated that
the first five years he could not aszer
tain that he made anything ; but he was
learning. Before ten years he was
clearing five thousand dollars a year.
Another was doing well in manufactur
ing ropes ; but he was unstable in his
mind, and although his friends advised
him to " hang to the ropes," he was not
getting rich fast enough, but he meddled
with business he had not learned suffi
ciently, bought a mill,bought grain, and
then broke a bank by his large failure.
While the rebel Gen. Johnson
was marching with his men to Brietoe

From the Lady's Friend for December
Mrs. Brent's Christmas.
BY BELLA F. BURTON,
It was the day, before Christmas, Mrs.
Brent stood 'at the wihdow, drearily
watching the snow fall, as though neith
er summer's sunshine nor winter's snow
could ever have charms for her. A
great sorrow bad come to this pale, sad
eyed woman, and changed the glad
summers of her life to dreariest winter.
Last Christmas Eve how happy and
busy she had been. How impossible it
seemed to keep certain articles from
prying eyes and little meddlesome fin
gers till the proper time for displaying
them arrived I How little arms went
round papa's neck, and red lips whis
pered close to his ears,that he must
" teep it se'tret, bat mamma had some
slippers hided away-for him, 'y'ristmas,"
aud that Santa .K.'486 was goilia!Vii:
bring her a dolly, 'cause she saw it in
the clothes p'ees."
Mrs. Brent thought of these things
with an agony words cannot express, for
the little pet was done with all earthly
things. Months before, when the Oc
tober leaves were piling the ground with
gold and crimson heaps, she had closed
he eyes and gone to keep her next
Christmas in heaven. There was none
left. She was the one pet lamb of the
fold, this little three-years-old girl that
they had made their idol. Oh, if any
who . reads this are mothers who love
their little ones with too tender, too all
absOrbing a love—think of it in time;
set them not up in your hearts before
Him who gave them to you, for the time
may come when you will waken to the
fact that yon'r idol was only clay ; beau
tiful clay, and dear`as the cast that
held the gem so dear to you—but only
clay after all. And you oomb out the
fair hair for the last time; how often
you have wished you could keep it
smooth a moment. Poor mother, you
can keep it smooth now ; the little rest
less head is forever still. Close the
dear.eyes whose glance will never make
you glad again ; fold the little waxen
hands that will never " bother " you
any more in all time to come. Close
the coffin lid, mother, lay your baby in
the churchyard, that never seemed so
far away and cold as now. Go back to
the deserted house that will never be
" home " to you again ; take up your.
" burden of life again." Yon will see
happy mothers from time to time who
have missed no lamb from their fold—
you will hear little voices cry " mother"
just as she used, whose lips are now s.o
white and mute in death. All this will
be too much for you sometimes, and you
will cry out in your agony, but you will
have learned a lesson—that it is not
well to make yourself idols when He has
said, " Thou shalt have no other gods
Mrs. Brent had been alone all the
morning. All of her preparations for
the morrow were complete. Her hus•
band was a minister, and she had pre
pared many gifts for his poor parishion
ers. As she stood by the window in
her bonnet and cloak, a brisk battle was
going on in her breast, between duty
and inclination. Inclination whispered.
"Stay at home ; go up to the nursery
and look over baby's playthings—the
things you gave her last Christmas,
There is no little stocking to fill to
night. You need not go out." Duty
said, "Go out and distribute you gifts.
.You will then meet your husband with a
bright face instead of eyes swollen with
Duty had almost prevailed ; she
moved a step forward, but the patter of
little feet in the ball arrested her. She
listened with bated breath.; little bung
ling hands turned the knob—how natur
al it sounded—a little head peeped in,
curly and golden, bat matted and un
kempt; the little hand that held the
knob was purple with cold. She ad
vanced unhesitatingly into the room.
"Is this heaven ? Is my mamma here ?"
dire. Brent took one little hand in
hers. "Are you loet r little one ? How
came so small a child as you oat alone
on such a day ?"
"No, I'm not lost; I live in that
street where the high steps go up. Ole
Moll sent me out to beg and I ran up
the steps and thought maybe they went
up to heaven. My mamma is there ?"
Mrs. Brent thought of little idle gar
ments up stairs, of the pairs of idle
shoes and stockings, as - she looked at
the numb little feet, but. her heart re
belled. "No, no,'!_she' , ..thought, "my
darling's clotbes I cannot give them
She took the child to-the kitchen_and
bade Bridget warm her and give her
something to eat, then wended her way
ap stairs. Going into her own room,
she took off her cloak and
went into the nursery. There had been
a fire there that morning and the room
was warm, and had the appearance of
being used everyday. There was a - lit
tle chair with a large doll in it, a Noah's
ark with part of the animals set up in
procession; altogether the room looked
as if the little occupant had gone out
for an airing instead of lying cold and
coffined under the winter snow.
Mrs. Brent took one little garment
after another. There were the little
house dresses, bright colored and warm,
with the pockets full of little trinkets
just as she had left them—then dresses
of softer fabric and daintier make. She
took them oat with tender, caressing
touch, the soft little stockings and dainty
little shoes, and with the thought of
how busy and tireless the little feet that
wore them used to be, how cold and sil
ent Row„she bowed her head with an
agunized prayer for help in this terrible
trial. Peace came after a while and
with her Sleep ;• and as she slept, she
dreamed she saw her darling, beautiful
beyond expression, in her heavenly hap
piuees. Her heart stood still as the
bright vision approached. The words
came to her clearly, "Take in the little
wanderer in Allie's place, love her as
you loved me, keep her for your own."
The voice, the glow, the form faded, and
Mrs. Brent awoke to a new resolution.
It was only a dream but it taught her a
She had bpii;n selfish is her sorrow,
never thinking that while applying balm
to the wounds of others she could heal,
in a great measure her own. She gave
up and selected a suit of the clothes and
carried them down stairs. Opening the
kitchen door _she found the little girl
asleep on two chairs, with pillows
brought from Bridget's own bed. Brid
get herself sat before the fire with her
face buried in her apron, sobbing.
"Why, Bridget!" was Mrs. Brent's
amazed ejaculation, "what is the mat
"Oh, ma'am, she's so like—so like—
look at her, -ma'am."
Mrs. Brent did look. Bridget had
washed the falr little face and combed
out the golden hair, but her hands, all
unused to such work were too clumsy
to, curl it, and it had' gathered itself up
into little irregular curls around the
white temples. Ah, she was " like r
" Bridget go up stairs and build a
good fire in my room, and leave the
nursery door open, and air the blankets
on poor little Allie's bed."
"What ever's come over the minus.
She spoke so cheery, like ; and it's the
first time I've been allowed to go anigh
Something had " come over the mie
ns," She took up the little waif, wash
ed and dressed her without waking her,
" Poor little lamb, she is so tired 1"
then she carried her up stairs herself
and laid her on Allie's little crib. Then
she gathered up the playthings and put
them away, closed the door and went
softly down stairs.
When Mr. Brent came home that
evening, the little parlor was bright
with fire and lamplight. • Bridget was
singing in a high quavering key, in the
kitchen, and Mrs. Brent sat by the fire
filling a little stocking with toys and
"Annie, this is wrong—it is sinful to
"No, it isn't wrong; you shall see why.
Come up stairs."
So they kept the little wanderer, and
years afterwards, when the old house
rang with merry childish voices, Mrs.
Brent found in this sweet elder daugh
ter an invaluable assistant in her house
