The fact .IP, wc were both too young
to marry. She was eighteen, I was
barely in my majority; but she was a
poor, desolate little orphan, s cutout Into
lhc cold world to do the bett the could
for herself as a governess; I was madly
in love with her, and I was my own
master; we had no wiser heads to ad
vise us and no more experienced hands
to guide us so we took our own way, as
was but natural, and married on my
clerkship of three hundred a year. I
need scarcely say we were happy. For
the first two years indeed it teemed to
me as if I had really never lived until
- now. Our pretty little home at Kilburn
was bright and chcciful. Edith was
alwass affectionate, always good tem
pered, and like Annabel Lee, seemed to
live "with no other thought than to love
and be loved by me." My work sat on
me easily, and being youn people of
moderate tastcswwe had money enough
for all we wanted. There was not a flaw
anywhere, and lhc days were scarcely
long enorgh for the joys that filled
them with ainshinc from beginning to
All this continued for two years, and
then my wife became a mother.
This was the first break in our man
ner of life, the first shadow cast over the
brightness of our happy love. It
changed the whole order of things, and
the changes told heavily against me.
Edith was no longer my companion as
she had been. The baby was delicate,
aadher health also gave way. pLc was
obliged to go to Ucr own room quite
- cariyJn thfe evening, sometimes at seven
o'clock or so, and even when she was
well, she was up in the morning with
the child, and the evenings hung on me
heavily and long. I was no student in
those days. I wss social, and if not in
ordinately yet undoubtedly fond of
amusement; hence, sitting alone for all
tliese hours after my solitary dinner for
Edith dined early by the doctor's orders
was dreary work for me, and I grew
daily more fretted, by the dulness of
my once sunshiny home.
I tell the story just as it was; not to
excuse myself, but to explain.
Also, too, the desire for more experi
ence natural to my age began to make
itself felt, and more than once I found
myseir confessing uWe married too
young." Yet I did not wish for dissi
pation; I was not conscious of a reserve
of wild oats that I was longing to sow,
but I did want a little change from the
dead monotony of my spoiled home. I
was yearning for the society of men of
my own age and standing, and naturally
the boy, though I loved him well enough
for all that I thought him the ugliest
and oddest little imp I had ever seen
was not to me what he was to his mother.
To her indeed he was everything. The
mother had superseded the wife, and the
husband was nowhere in comparison
with the child. Edith was angry, too,
that I did not. as she phrased it, "take
to him more,1' and I was angry that she
took to him so much. Hay be that I
was jealous. On looking back I should
say that I was.
Just when Bertie was three months
old a fellow in our office introduced me
Jr Jack Langhorne. Handsome, well
mannered, rich, gay, good" tempera;
generous Jack was just the man to
fascinate a comparatively raw lad, as I
still was. He knew everything, being
- one of the kind who start at seventeen
as Men, and "see life" systematically
from that time. There' was not an ac
complishment in which lie was not a
proficient; not a game he could not play,
givinc long odds and winning. He was
lavish of his money, and a gambler by
inbred instinct. He was always staking
his fate on chance, and hitherto chance
had been his friend. He used often to
an? that he had been too lucky, and that
he should have to pay for it before he
had dose. Nevertheless, the day of pay
ment had no sign of dawning, and Jack
went on staking and landing, backing
the right color and the. winning horse, as
if he had a private Nostrodamus at his
elbow, and could read the future as
other meal conld read the past.

arity, as I took home to Edith a sixth
of my yearly income, made in fewer
hours than it took me to earn my paltry
diurnal guinea. Visions of foitane,
goldea and bright, paused before my
eyes, aad already I saw Edith qaeening
it in the park with her high stepping
bays and faultless turnout. She should
have everything money could command.
Whatever else my visions showed me she
wss always foremost in my thoughts
and highest in my hopes.
But when I gave her the money she
turned away from me coldly, and a min
ute after had buried her face in the pil
low of the sofa where she was lying and
wai xobbing. I was a good deal sur
prised, a little shocked, and greatly
hurt I hd tetter use the harsher word
and May vexed at this outburst. I did
not understand it Beside, it chills a
man so painfully to be received with
coldness and tears after such a day as I
had spent! It makes the contrast be
ween life inside and outside the home
too sharp, and only sends him further off
instead of drawing him nearer. How
ever, tears were too scarce yet for me to
disregard or withstand them, so I kissed
my wife and did my best to soothe her,
and by degrees brought her round so far
that she left off crying and began to kiss
the baby, as if it was something quite
new, and she had never kissed it before.
Though I was sorry to see her cry,
this vexed me again. She had not seen
me all the day, and the had the boy. I
thought she might have paid a little
attention to the one who had been absent,
to put it on no other ground.
But when I remonstrated she only
answered, "I know, George, you do not
care for baby. You never-have cared for
him, and if it were not for me ho might
die of neglect."
I began to laugh at this. It struck
me as too comical for a woman to re
proach her husband for not taking care
of the baby; for surely if there is such a
thing as "woman's work" in the world,
and they are not meant by nature and
the eternal fitness of things to be soldiers
and sailors and lawyers and doctors and
the Lord knows what beside, that work
is to be found in the nursery. But she
Avas angry when I laughed; and raising
herself on her elbow, drew a picture of
the Infamy, ruin, degredation that was
to follow on my taking to bad courses,
founded on my not caiing for baby and
my having won fifty pound3 at the Derby,
that I seemed to be talking to a maniac,
not the Edith I had left in the morning
and had loved for so long. Perhaps I
was too impatient, and ought to have
remembered that if I found my life dull,
hers was not too gay; I ought to have
made allowance for the morbid nervous
ness and brooding fancies of a woman
left alone for the whole day; but I was
younger then than I am now, and the
thing jended by our having our first grave
quarrel, wherein we were both silly,
both unjust, and neither of us would give
Theliad blodd'made between us to
night grew worse as time wore on ; and
the circle we were in was a vicious one.
I kept away more and more from home,
because my wife made it too miserable
for me by her coldness, her tears, her
complaints, her ill humor, and the
more I stayed away the more I resent
ed it. She took an almost insane hatred
and suspicion of my friends and my
actions, and did not scruple to accuse
me and them ot vices and crimes because
I was often late, from no worse cause
than playing pool and billiards. Her
reproaches first wearied and then hard
ened me; and by degrees a kind of fierce
feeling took possession of me a kind ot
revengeful determination that I would
be what she imagined me to be, and give
her cause to denounce me as she did.
Harmless amusements became amuse
ments not so harmless; petty little stakes
of half a crown and a shilling grew to
gold ; the glas3 of beer became the glass
of brandy and more than one; and the
facilis descensus had one more self-directed
victim on its slippery way. Work
was intolerable to me. What I did I did
badly, and I shirked ali I could. I was
often late, I as often left- too early; and
my employers were really good and
lenient. As it was, however, I wearied
out their patience, and they remonstrated
with me firmly but kindly.
This sobered me for a moment; but I
had gone too far to retreat; until I came
out at the other side I must go on.
The fortune which had so long be
friended Jack Langhorne deserted him
now, and with his fortune his nerve.
'Where he had staked with judgment he
now backed wildly, recklessly, and the
more he lost the more recklessly he
staked. His fortune seemed to influence
mine. Hitherto I had been immensely
successful; now the luck ran dead
against me, and I lost more than I could
afford, and soon more than I could pay,
and so came face to face with ruin.
Daring all this time the estrangement
between Edith and myself grew daily
wider. She took the wrong method
with me, and being a woman she kept to
it. She thought to dragoon me' back to
the quiet of my former life, and made
my private actions personal to herself;
seeking to force me into rendering an
account of all my doings, and of every
item of expenditure, then taking it as an
affront when I refused to answer ques
tions. But now there m bo hope for
it. I mut perforce oafcat. With that
writ out against me it was Bseless to at
tempt concealment; and if marriage k
set feminine sepenority, yet it k part
Yen may be snre it was a bitter mo-,
ment for me when I had to tell my wife
that all her wont nntieiBntiojM were re
alized; that ah had been Tight throngs
oat, and I wroeg; ad tnt tie deetrnc-
tton she had nrophenied kni
na. In her temper of no many
now, it was doubly hard. But it sterna
that I knew rs little of woman as of
man, and had miscalculated the depth
of her goodness underneath "all her
wrong headednefts, joat as he bad mis
calculated my power of will and truth
of lave when fairly pulled up.
She beard me out to the end without
making a sign. -There was no interrup
tion, no angry expression, no scornful
look. I saw the hand with which she
held the child tighten round bis body;
the one playing with his curls tremble.
But that was all.
When I bad finished she looked up
and said quietly: "It is better to know
the worst, (ieorge; for then we can meet
it Now that I know the worst I know
what to do."
"And you do notrcprntch me, Edith?"
She ro-c from her Mrat and cumc over
to me. Her eyes were full of tears, her
Him were quivering; and yet ttierc was
more love, more softnesi in her face
through its sorrow than there had been
for all these long, bad, dicary month?,
passing now into years.
She slid the boy from her arms and
pressed them round my neck.
"Why should I reproach you?" she
said. "Is not your burden heavy enough
without that?" While I thought I could
help to keep you straight, I tried; if
clumsily and to no good, yet loyally.
Now I know that all is over; I have only
to try and help you, both by my work
and my love."
Something seemed to choke me while
she spokt. I cnulii have lcen hard
enough if she had been angry, but this
sudden return to the old love this un
expected magnanimity was too much
for me. Still, I am thankful to say I
did not break down. I was man enough
"Will you trust me Edith?" said I, in
a tone so rough and husky I scarcely
recognized it as my own. "Love me as
you used, be to me what you were, and
I swear you shall never have cause to
reproach me aain. I am young, I can
work, I can be resolute. I have bought
my experience of life, and I find the
taste too bitter in my mouth. A man
may be a man, and yet not be ashamed
to think of his wife as well as of his
pleasures, and I will think of you now."
She sighed and then she smiled.
"You come back to what you left,"
she said in a tender, caicssmg kind of
way that scfincd as if it buiied now
forever all that had gone wrong between
Of course the struggle was a tremen
dous one. I lost my clerkship and every
sixpense I possessed, both in goods and
money. My wife had to give lessons,
and I had to accept anything that would
keep us from starvation ; but we pulled
through in time, and the sufferings we
had encountered were, perhaps, a good
thing in the end. ' It taught us to value
each other in a deeper and truer manner
than ever before; and it gave us a friend.
For dear, old Jack's luck turned with
his uncle's death, and he used his influ
ence to get mc a situation that began at
five hundred a year, and has steps up
ward in the future. Things have gone
well with me since then. Edith's health
has come back, and my boy is at the
head of his class. I have traveled a good
deal and lately I have taken up chemis
try as a study. Edith declares I will
blow the house up some day, but I have
not done so yet, and I think I am on the
track ot a discovery that will do a great
deal of good make mc a name, and
bring me in a lot of money. I find that
as one grows older work is a more satis
fying thing than pleasure, and knowl
edge goes further than excitement; and
Edith finds that a wife's influence is
greatest when least visibly exerted, and
that when a woman abandons the per
suasion of love for authoritative com
mand, and tenderness for ill temper, she
loses her power and only deepens the
unhappincss she aims at preventing.
The Iowa Corn Crop.
Iowa is a growing State scarce thirty
years old. Among other products she
will this year add to the sum total, will
be 140,000,000 bushels of corn. Now
let us see what this means when put in
a comprehensive form. It will require
an army of 150,000 Grangers twenty
days to pluck and crib the ears. If
shipped, it would require 4,660 ships of
1,000 tons each to carry the crop. If
transported upon cars, it will require
470,000 cars, and would make a train
2,750 miles in length, or space nearly
across the continent If loaded upon
wagon?, with carrying capacity of thirty
bushels each, the train would form a
line 27,000 miles long, or 2,000 mile3
more than the circuit of the globe. If
emptied down upon the city of New
York, it would overwhelm that city as
were Herculaueum and Pompeii. If
made into whisky, it would float the
United States navy, or make everj man,
weman and child upon the face oi the
earth drunk. It means fat horses, fat
beef, fat hogf, fat poultry, and fat pock-
etbeoks. It means that it will open

WIJ Mill aw Lair-MlM Maekl
Tbn rapid growth of our country and
the constantly increasing demand for
practical aad d arable farm machinery
has brought the wind mill into almost
crneral uae. Their practical value ia no
longer doubted; no well regulated farm
can afford to be without them. By
usinfc and applyiag the free wind which
our Creator has given us, (which soma
day not far distant will be utilized to a
surprising extent) we can obtain aatrone
and cheap power which can be adapted
to almost any extent and to every variety
of work. Dry pastures can be watered,
swampy lands drained, gardens irrigated,
water aupplicd for hoiae and barn, wood
sawed, corn shelled, feed cut; meal,
Graham and buckwheat flour made at
home for your own use and that of jour
neighbors". In short, nit the work that ia
done on a large farm, and which at some
seasons of the year ncccattitates the em
ployment (jf two or three extra hands.
Farmers who are improving their prop
erty and miking investments will fluu
wind mills not only a pleasure but a
machine of profit. There are so uiaty
new ana cheap mills in the market that
we feel it our duty tc caution our farm
ers that they look at the mill and not
at the price, examine the record and
know that the mill U one that has been
thoroughly tried at least three years by
some one. Wind is an unruly element,
and unless a wind mill is built upon
true mechanical principles and from
strong and durable material, they are
liable at any time Ao be jdestrojed. It
costs jutt as much i erect a poor mill
as a good one, and ifwill not pay to run
the chance of losing your labor, time and
mill for a few dollars more at the start.
When at Beloit, Wis , a few weeks
since, being interested in this rapidlv
developing business, we spent. an after
noon examining and looking over the
extensive works of the Eclipse Wind
Mill Co., and were surprised to find so
large an establishment. We were in
formed that the business of this company
extended into every State and Territory
Their factory is one of the finest in the
West built of stone and iron, 100x40
feet three stories above the basement,
with a foundry and blacksmith shop ad
j riniag. The main building is heated
throughout by steam, and furnished with
the mostimproved machinery, all espe
cially designed for wind mill and pump
work. They employ about 35 men,
mostly skilled mechanics, on wind mills
of all sizes, from the 10 foot farm pump
ing mill to the large railway and grind
ing mills. The capacity of the works is
about 1200 mills a year, besides pumps
and cylinders, which they also, make
quite largely. This company are the
owners of the celebrated Wheeler pat
ents, under which a dozen wind mill
companies arc licensed, and are the
original inventors of the solid wheel
mill. We strongly recommend this
company and their mills, for they have
had eight years experience and have the
name ot making good all their contracts.
The Eclipse mill is the one that uses the
side vane regulator, which is called the
safest and sursst regulation vet proauccd.
We were told by an old railroad engineer
on one of our western roads that the
Eclipse mill was about 20 per cent,
stronger than any other mill, and was
the nearest constructed on mechanical,
principles of anything in the line of'
wind mills; and from the numbers of
these mills seen on several of our rail
roads, it would seem others entertained
a high opinion of them. Wc believe the
Eclipse mill only costs some $10 more
for 10-foct farm mills than others, and
we do not think this difference should
be considered in buying a good reliable
mill for a permanent investment The
company are able and willing to guaj
antee their work, and farmers who are
contemplating buying a wind mill this
fall will consult their interests by send
ing for illustrated circulars to the secre
tary of the company, C. B. Salmon,
