A Wife's Bemorse,
"Sick sick again !" said the heedless
wife, with petullence-'Tra so tired -of
seeing a pale face., from morning, til
nteht, of hearing groans, of mixing do
ses. It seems to me there is little need
of this constant giving up why don't I
- "Mary Mary," cried a quivering
Coming,. comic,". replied the .wo
man. -Oh .'dear, "hew I hare to run ! He
is so "impatient and" I must always be
there; men ought never to be sick, they
make so much trouble."
There was but little tenderness in the
voice that answered the faint queries of
the sick man, and yet Mrs. North was
not a hard-hearted woman. Her char
arter leaned somewhat to the selfish, and
being in robust health, she had no knowl
edge of the heart-wearing that continual
pull-backs cause to men of the stongest
"O dear," sighed the man, half child
ishly, "it seems as if my head never did
ache as it does now."
"I've heara you say that a hundred
times." said Mrs. Nash, not in the soft
"But I'm sure it's worse if you'll on
ly pull the curtain down the least light
strikes through my eyes even when they
"Up again," thought the wife, rising
somewhat impatiently, scattering her
work with some noise as she did so, and
heedless of the groan that followed, she
let the blind fall heavily.
"I'm a great deal of trouble," said the
sick man, seeing the cloud on his wife's
"U no!" her face cleared up you ru
notiqnal of course; all men are men do
not knew what sickness is and they are
so much frightened at the least pain.
"But this is terrible !" cried the inva
lid, pressing his closed eyes together.
O how he longed to have some sooth
ing hand upon his temples! but he would
not ask his wife because he saw that she
had snatched up her sowing and was
absorbed in its contemplation.
- " - at
Hours passed, and the pulse leaped
madly, the eyes grew strained, and cros
sed with veins, the temples fluttered with
the throbbing flesh, . and strange words
came thickly on the stillness of the cham
Mrs. Nash had been down stairs pre
paring supper; she had just laughingly
said, in reply to her neighbor's question
concerning her husband
'O! going to die, as you men all are, if
you happen to cut your finger."
Little she thought how true the pro
phecy she so unthinkingly uttered. In
another moment her eldest son came into
Isn't it funny?" he cried, "pa don't
know me. He called me Mr. Morris,
and asked me if I had that will made
"What do you mean, child ?" His mo
ther paused in the midst of her work.
He don t know me, because I kept
calling pa, and he would look at me so
strange and keep asking me if I had that
Anil all made out.
Her cheek paling a little, Mrs. Nash
hurried up to the chamber above. Her
husband was talking wildly to himself,
and his appearance had changed fright
fully. Now, seriously alarmed, she sent
for the physician, who was all wonder that
he had been called at so late an hour.
"The man must have shown symptoms
of more than ordinary distress this mor
ning," he said; "did he make complaint
of nothing but an ordinary headache ?"
The wife was forced to confess that the
symptoms had been unusually severe, but
he was so liable to these attacks that she
did not think much of it. Her heart,
however, condemned her. She was con
science smitten that the moans and com
plaints of her poor, sick husband had irri
tated her to an unusual degree, and that
she had born far from patiently with him.
Now she was ready to make all amends.
With tears and loving thoughts she hov
ered over that sick-bed, accusing her
self as every wild cry for her rang out,
still there was no consciousness, still he
felt not the kind hand, saw not the stream
ing eyes of being the cause of all his
wretchedness, through her selfish neg
lect. Tears, hot and copious, wild prayers
to heaven, sweet and fervent words of
love availed nothing. The death hour
came, and with it consciousness. Ar
rows could not have pierced that sad heart
as did the last words of that dying man :
"Dearest, you have been a good wife
The meek face looked' calmly white
amidst the casements of the grave, but
it was scarce whiter than the face that
bent over it. O! what would that wretch
ed heart have given to recall those cold,
careless words that were ringing in her
ears at every step. Thi3 was the thought
that gave anguish unparalleled, as her
trembling steps led her to his open grave
as she looked her last upon tha manly
face that had ever had a smile for her.
O! to live with this consciousness! To
bear a burden so heavy these were to be
"If I had been tender to him that day"
she often sobbed out as she accused
herself "if I had only kissed the hot
brow and bathed it more carefully if I
had only put down that feeling that I
would not humor his fancied indisposition
I would give worlds." But the sor
row, dreadful as it' was,, has not been
without its salutary influence. Now the
widowed woman is ihe welcome visitor by
tho bedside of the sick. ..Her gentle
voice sooths as the voice of a mothef her
hand's touch is like the pressure "of vel
vet, her very sympathy is as the sweetes
cordial. And if ever she is tempted to
think an impatient thought, or give ex
pression to a selfish wish, there ccmes op
before her the vision of a pale face that,
but for her neglect, might be smiling on
her now and with' the rebuke working
patience in her heart, she goes about her
Master s work. Mother s Journal. :
. Politeness Pnjs.
"Seems to me you treat that ragged lit
tie brat with more poiiieness than I
should," said a rough looking man to a
young shop-keeper, who had just done up
three cent s worth of sugar very neatly
in a brown paper, and tied it very care
The boy in question had presented a
marked physiognomy. From under his
rimless hat projected a wide, full brow,
deep, sparkling eyes, and features full of
energy and resolution. Hia face and
hands were scrupulously clean, but his
clothes were poor and patched, though
not, as the man had insinuated, ragged.
His mother was a woman possessing
much force of character a hard work
ing woman who had been reared in ap
parently better circumstances than those
that now surrounddd her, for she was the
wife of a drunkard. .
The grocer was busy, and he evident
ly had not heard what was said, so the
rough looking man remarked again :
"I say, VVyman, you are a queer
"How queer, Gross?" asked the gro
cer. throwing a scoop of tea into the
"Why you treat all the beggars about
here with as much consideration, . when
they come with their pennies, as if they
bought by wholesale. '
"And why should n 1 1 ? said the gro
cer, looking up with his honest eyes wide
open and clear. ' '
"O, I don t' know ; its queer, that's
all; you're the only man that does it, I
reckon in these parts."
"Well, I'll tell you," said Wyman, de
liberately unwinding the spool of cord
and twisting the string about a package
in his hand : "The fact is, if I wasn't
naturally tender towards the children, I
should treat them as I do from motives
of policy. You see I'm but a young man
ai d these "brats," as you call them, are
growing fast. Many of them, of little
worth as they seem now, will become
men of business. Now, I want to retain
their custom," he said laughingly ; "their
pennies, in the course of few years, will
turn into pounds; their three cents' worth
of sugar will change into orders by the
barrel. I shall have many a good custo
mer among the 'brats,' besides, I have
always found that politeness pays."
"Something in that, ejaculated this
coarse man, thrusting his hands into his
pockets, "something in that, but I never
ooked at it in that light. '
"The boy that bought the sugar," con
inued the grocer, "is none of the ordina
ry mind, if I am not mistaken. If his
ather was dead, I would take him with
me in the store, an! make a man out of
him though I reckon nature will do bet
ter for him than I could;" and the far-
seeing grocer handed a cent's worth of
pins to a little timid child whose top curl
just reached to the counter.
Time verified the prediction of Wy
man, the grocer. There was not a shop
in the place where so much change was
spent as in his, for the children loved to
go where they were not afraid of rough
actions or rude speechs. They felt them
selves safe while making their little pur
chases ; and it is well known that on such
trifling sales much profit accrues in the
Time passed, and Wyman, the grocer,
was the most popular man in the town.
His pleasant face at forty years was gree
ted everywhere. Everybody 'patronized
Wyman. It was strange to see the trans
formation that took place so gradually;
the little dirty-faced juveniles shot up in
to awkward youths learning trades, and
then grew to be respectable business men.
Wyman enlarged his shop, and built him
a splendid house, "ail the fruits of chil
dren's pennies," he often said, laughing-
iy. ;. m . V.' :
Yes, with him it paid to be polite: it
always pays. It pays the merchant as
well as the mechanic, and the lawyer as
well as the physician. Urbane manners
have been the means of many a fortune,
while the cross-grained have wondered
why they did not get along. The rough
ness that speaks its mind at all times, and
in all places, boasting itself that it is on
ly honest, blunt, and straight-forward, is
a habit that demoralizes as well as insults.
Ask any man you chance to see, if he
remembers those who treated him politely
when a child, and he will recall their

Pressed:," the historian, Li consequence
of a disorder of the nerve cf the eye,
wrote every word of his historical with
out pen or ink, as he cculd not see when
the pen was out of ink, or from any ether
cause failai to makj a mark. "He. used
an agate stylus cn carbonated paper, the
lines and edges of the page being indi
cated by brass.wires in a wooden frame.
Crawford, the sculptor, the habit cf
whose life had been to read in a reclining
position, lost one eye, and soon died from
the formation of a malignant cancerous
tumor behind the ball, which pushed it
out on the cheek. .'
There are many affections of the eyes
which are radically incurable. Persons
cf scrofulous constitutions, without any
special local manifestation of it, often de
termine the disease to the eye by seme
erroneous habit or practice, and it remains
there for life. It is useful, therefore, to
know some of the causes which, by debi
litating the eye, invite disease . to, it, or
render it incapable cf resisting adverse
influences. ' ; '
Avoid reading by candle or any other
artificial light. ;
Reading by twilight ought never, to be
indulged in. '
Do not allow yourself to read a mo
ment in any reclining position, whether
in bed or on a sofa. . . ;
Reading on steam or sail vessels should
not be largely indulged in, because the
slightest motion of the page or your body
alters the focal point, and requires a
painful, straining enort to readjust iu .
Never attempt to look at the sun while
shining, unless through a colored glass of
some kind: even a 'very bright moon
should not be long gazed at.
The glare of the sun on water is very
injurious to the sight.
A sudden change between bright light
and darkness is always pernicious. j
In looking at minute objects, relieve the
eyes frequently by taming them to some
thing m the distance.
Let the, light, whether natural or artifi
cial, fall on the page from behind, a little
to one sjde.
Never bathe or open the eyes in cold
water. It i3 always safest, best and more
agreeable to use warm water for -that
purpose. - .
Wliy mis Intense Desire for
The reply is, it results from the indis
criminate respect paid to wealth.
To be distinguished from the common
herd to be somebody to make a name,
a position this is the universal ambition;
and every one finds that to accumulate
riches, is alike the surest and the easiest
way of fulfilling his ambition. Very
early in life all learn this. At school
the court paid to one whose parents have
called in their carriage to see him, is
conspicuous; while the poor boy, whose
insufficient stock of clothes implies the
small means of his family soon has burnt
into his memory the fact that poverty is
contemptible. On entering the world,
the lessons that may have been taught,
about the nobility of self-sacrifice, the
reverence due to genius, the admirable
ness of high integrity, are all quickly
neutralized by counter experience ,men'3
actions proving that these are not their
standards of respect. It is soon per
ceived that while abundant outward marks
of deference from fellow-citizens may
almost certainly be gained by directing
every energy to the accumulation of prop
erty, and they are but rarely to be gained
n any ether way; and that even in the
ew cases where they are otherwise gain
ed, they are not given with entire unre
serve, but are commonly joined with a
more or less manifest display of patron
age. When seeing this, the young man
urther sees that while the acquisition of
property is .uite possible with his medi
ocre endowments, the acquirement of
distinction by brilliant discoveries, or he
roic acts, implies faculties and feeling3
which he does not possess: it 13 not dif
ficult to understand why he devotes him
self, heart and soul to business.
We do not mean to say that men act on
the ' constantly reasoned out conclusions
thus indicated ; but we mean that these
conclusions are the unconsciously formed
products of our daily experience. From
early childhood the sayings and. doings
of all around have generated "the idea
that wealth and respectability are two
sides of the same thing. This idea, grow
ing with their growth, and strengthening
with their strength, becomes at last al
most what we may call an organic con
viction. And this organic conviction it
i3 which prompts the expenditure cf all
their energies in money-making. WTe
contend that the chief stimulus, is not the
desire for wealth itrelf; but for the ap
plause and position which wealth brings.
And in this belief we find ourselves thor
oughly at one with various intelligent tra
ders with whom we have talked on the
matter. " It is incredible that men should
make the sacrifices mental and bodily,
which they do, merely, to get material
benefits which money purchases. Who
would undertake an extra burden of busi
ness for the purpose of getting a cellar
of choice winea for his own drinking?
