A NOBLE UIUL,
"No, my dears," remarked Mrs. Ben

with one iiier prcs-sctl criticallj' to
her lip, as sho mspectetl two ball
dresses of blue and mauve,

sorted ribbon. his blue looks any
thing but fresh in the trimmings ; and,
I era, my love, though the mauve was
your choice, 1 never did think: the col
or became vou."
Nora and Clara Beudelpool were by
no means loath to agree with their
parent new ball-dresses being in per
spective. Only Clare, bending for

"iiut what will papa say to the ex

"Very; and so manly. None of your
insipid drawing-room dandies, said
Mrs. Beudelpool, contemptuously, of
that class among which, lor the last
two years, she had been angling to
land "suitable establishments" for her
daughters. "He has traveled until
thev say he is as brown as a bun."
"Bronzed, I fancy they Baid, mam
"Well, bronzed as a bun. He has
been an over Airica, snot gorillas in
the Mountains of the Moon, hippopot
ami on the shores of the Nile, and,
dear man, been nearly twice eaten
alive by lions. Now he comes home
to find a wife."
"The unheard-of dangers he has
passed through having given him suf
ficient courage to undertake so perilous
an enterprise," broke in a merry voice.
"Pray, aunt, was it the lion's claws
that suggested to him matrimony?"
The speaker was a young lady, who
had entered unheard, and now stood,
the skirts of her riding-habit in one
hand, while with the other 6hc fanned
herself with her Gainsborough hat.
"Vi, how incorrigible you are!" ex
claimed Mrs. Bendclpool, looking
round. "As to ever finding you a
husband, I despair; you frighten ev

the girl, dropping into a chair. "Pray

"I would," remarked Mrs. Beudel

the baronet's selection of a wife."
"A mystery!" and the three young

"Yes, yes exactly. Go on."
"Well, this morning, when Mrs.
Sumner was telling me all about it,
she read me her son's letter, and in it
he writes, in his lively way, you
know, that the baronet is coming to
seek a wife, but that the girl he selects
must possess one peculiarity, rarely to
be found' in fashionable young ladies.
If she fail in this, be she as lovely as

"Who have a poor three hundred of

aunt. To an independent spirit, it will
aflord a girl to be independent of tak
ing, a husband she doesn't love, and
make, her brave enough to face the
world as an old maid."
And the speaker wandered away,
singing, leaving the trio to further dis
cuss Sir Archie aud his whim.
Violet was the niece of Mrs. Bendcl
pool. Left an orphan, with an income
of 'M0, her aunt had offered her a
home a very happy one, whero she
did pretty much as she liked. She
was dark, small-featured, and not par
ticularly pretty, save in the pleasant,
mirthful expression of the countenance.
The Misses Beudelpool were handsome
and never regarded Vi as a rival, for
though she liked male society, she ab
horred and speedily stopped flattery
The evening of the Summer ball ar
rived. Tire Beudelpool house was in
commotion; the unfortunate lady's
maid was summoned from dressing
room to dressing-room, until she wai
tired out of her life. As the last
touches were being given, Mrs. Bendcl
pool, entered, smiling, holding two
pasteboard boxes in her hand.
"Nora, Clare," she rsaid, "papa had
meant these for Christmas presents,

The boxes opened, the girls gave a
cry of delight each contained a pearl
necklace, with pendant and earrings to
match. They were speedily placed,
and certainly "the Beudelpool girls"
looked, to use a young Oxoutau's words,
"no end of stunning."
"Where is Vi?"
"Here, my dear Nora, quite ready to
admire you," answered Violet, enter
ing, tastefully attired in an amber,
gauzv, lacy fabric.

"Which is but fair," whispered Vi,
"considering the lions had it so much

Vi quizzed him, nevertheless, danced
with him, and said he was very enter
taining, and even, possibly, would im
prove on acquaintance.
The Bendclpool girls, and all the
other handsome girls, danced with him
and declared he was divine I
Sir Archie certainly seemed to havo
the same opinion of his partners. He
was graciousness itself.
"Arn't the Beudelpool girls jolly
handsome, Archie r whispered George
"Yes very, indeed I"
"Well, now you have seen the beauty
of Shallowton, how about your se
lection of a wife ?"
"It is made," was the reply.
"Yes, if the lady will be only kind
enough to have me. I shall ask per

"But but, the peculiarity?"
"Out of all the crowd here," remark.
ed Sir Archie, "only one possesses it.
Of course I am not compelled to marry
that one; but as .circumstances turn
out, I think I should like to try."
And with that Sir Archie strolled
away, a dance forming, to find the lady
on whose tablets his name was down
That lady was Violet.

Vi remarked that dancing, like oth

Before that ice was consumed Sir

at first sight, to woo Vi, and after a
while had obtained a half consent.
"But," said Vi, shyly, as they return-
ed slowly to the ball-room, "I under

Among the rare bits of worldly wis
dom uttered by Major Eastbum, one
or the former magnates of State btreet,
whose familiar face and form as lit
stood at his office door at noonday will
be recalled by many, none may be more
profitably considered at the present
time than his comment on making
haste to be rich. "I've stood, here on
State Street," said he, "for forty years,
and I have seen men accumulate for
tunes by speculation, and 1 ve seen
these fortunes disappear. I have seen
met go up in worldly wealth, and go
down, and I've always noticed that
those persons who were content with
slow gains and six per cent, interest
came out ahead in the long run." The
greatest of proverbial philosophers ha
also said, "A faithful man shall abound
with blessings: but ho that maketh
haste to be rich shall not be innocent;'
and again, "He tliat hasteth to be rich
hath an evil eye, and considcreth not
that poverty shall come upon hiiiLK
lie hastens best who hastens slowly ;
not lazily, for there must be work,
backed by energy, perseverance, intel
ligent self-denial, and thorough busi
ness habits. Believers in business im
possibilities arc not as numerous at
formerly. For yeare we seemed to be
living in the atmosphere of venture
and great undertakings, and our whole
industry was tinged with the unearth
ly light, but of late years we have been
suffering from a collapse of these great
hollow ideas, and there is hope for the
return of the staple proserity of ear
lier times. The past six years of de-
Eression has solidified all branches of
usiness. Prudence and economy is
now the motto of the successful mer
chant. The misfortunes of the past
did not come for naught. It is a delu.
sion to suppose that success is attained
by any kind of patent process. Books
are sometimes advertised with such
taking titles as "The Secret of Success."
"TheKoad to Wealth," etc., but they
make the path of success no plainer or
easier for those who are lookin? for a
short road to wealth, power, honor, and
influence. These come only of years of
intelligent labor and devotion to busi
ness, prudence, economy, honest deal
ing, courage, and perseverance. He
that would have true and lasting suc
cess must deserve it. A fortune won
by blunder or accident, by short cuts,
by strategy, or close bargains, is not
success, and is likely to leave its pos
scssor as quickly as it came. Success
must be conquered in a legitimate way.
The man who enters business only for
plunder and gain, with no thought of
his reputation or character, is not
good business man, and is never regard
ed by his lcllows as a successful nun.
The truth is that real success does not
mean wealth, social position, or politi
cal honors alone. To these must be
added honesty, a heartfelt consideration
for others, civility, promptitude ol
thought and action, intelligence, sobri
ety, and every manly virtue. The tnr
ly successful business man is one who
is complete in everything that belongs
to his calling. He has a thorough
knowledge ot what has been done iu
his business, and applies this kuowl-

Nerve-Stretching in Obstinate Sciatica.
At a recent meeting of the Harveian
Society, London, Mr. Pye read a paper
on nerve-stretching. A patient htd
suffered for many years with severe
sciatica, for the treatment of which
huge doses of morphia had been used.
The patient was in severe pain when
not under the influence of morphia.
The nerve having been laid bare, it
was pulled backward aud forward,
forcibly, with from eight to ten pounds
pressure. The wound healed well, the
1ain was lost, and some paresis fol
owed. The paresis wore off, antl some
pain Was felt in the lower leg, but
there was no return of the sciatica.
The patient was able to resume work.
The sciatica was probably rheumatic.
The list of cases of nerve-stretching
yet performed is not large enough to
settle the question of the justifiable -ness
of the operation.
Reminiscences of Revolutionary Times.
We find among reminiscences of
Revolutionary times an amusing
sketch of Admiral Saiidais. "For a
Frenchman he was a good sailor."
My uncle, who was with him,al ways as
serted that Sandais erred, not through
any defect of bravery, but merely from
his desire to approach his enemy sci
entifically, by bearing down upon the
hypothenuse of the precise right-angled
triangle, prescribed in the S7th
"manoeuvre" of his old test-book. But
as the naval committee of Congress
unfortunately understood neither
mathematics nor French, they did not
understand his explanations, and he
was thrown out of service. An unex
pected dividend of prize money, earned
at the beginning of the Revolutionary
War, gave him an annuity of one hun
dred and four dollars or rather, I
think, of one hundred and five, for I
remember he told me he had two dol
lars a week on which to subsist, and
an odd dollar for charity at the end of
the year. He subsisted with the ut
most independence on this scanty in

He was a man of most punctilious
and chivalric honor, and at tbe same
time full of that instinctive kindness
of heart, and that nice sense of propri

thing to any body on any occasion.
Even when he met his bitterest ene
my, as he did shortly after he came to
New York, the man whose accusation
had destroyed his reputation and
blighted his prospects, whom he had
determined to insult and punish, he
could not bring himself to offer him
any insult unbecoming a gentleman,
but deliberately spitting on the pave

Petrolsum la Roisla,
From an official report addressed by
Colonel Itomanowsky to the Russian
Minister of Finance, it appears that
the principal petroleum depots in the
Russian Empire are to be found in the
southeastern and northeastern districts
of the Caucasus, that is to say, in the
province of Bakou. on the shores of
the Caspian Sea, and in tlie province
of Kouban, in the vicinity of the
Black Sea. According to the state
ments of some Russian engineers, there
are no less than 250 localities within
these provinces where enormous quan
tities of petroleum can be found. It is
said that 100 of these depots, if prop
erly worked, could be made to yield
660,000,000 gallons per annum. The
Bakou oil is thick and heavy, suitable
for heating and for rough purposes iu

Water Cresses. '
At a recent meeting of the Royal
Horticultural Society of England, Mr.
Shirley llibberd exhibited a lot of
home-grown water cresses, which ere.
atcd considerable interest among the
members. The display consisted of a
scries of pans, fifteen inches in diame
ter, each tilled with a luxurious
growth of tender cresses. The exhib
itor claims that the pan culture of
water cresses may be profitably pur
sued with the aid of a frame or cool
plant house during the severest winter
weather. The cresses shown were
produced in the course of six weeks,
and had been daily gathered for the
tabic, thus showing how rapidly and
prolific they grow. According to the
testimony of Mr. llibberd auy one

A scandal in a church at Marlbor

of the beverage at his pleasure, he ad

It is a fact not generally known that
silver coins with holes bored or punch
