HOW I CAMK TO MARRY.
IT NELLIE M.SANFORD.
"So you want to know, Mena, how
such a rattle-brained creature :is I came
to get a husband so dignified, so even
thing, in shoit, near perfection, and so
different from myself? Xot much of a
story, so you needn't Vit on that self
satisfied look, and settle yomself back
so cosily in your great arm-chair. I al
ways feel like sticking needles into peo
pie's back's when I see the particular
look on their faces that yours weais this
very minute. Do stop."
m And before 1 could move, up jumped
the little witch and shook me till rny
"There, Wilhclmina Martin," as she
gave me a final settlement, "I've shaken
that out or you; and now you look com
fortable, and I feel so."
nd with face Hushed and curls Hy
ing, down sat Mrs. Frederick IJond, to
give me an account of her courtship
"You know, Mena, how I was dragged
about from pillar to post every summer
making a living dust-heat) of invsulf.
converting my lungs and throat into a
receptacle for all the stray cinders and
smoke of cars, and at my journey's end
stowed away in some narrow hole call
ed a room; and then the tortures of
dressing, and company, and flirting, and
eating Oh, it was dreadful. To be sure
-the bathing was nice. I enjoyed New
port for that the only thing in all our
summer's touring that J did really and
heartily enjoy. How hard Aunt Mason
tried to make me a belle! and didn't I
astonish her one line morning in June
by telling her that I was going to Clay
ton Hills instead of the usual route. I
had the plan all made, and was engaged
Ttf.en to teach the district school for live
aollars per week. No wonder you stare
only don't look so much like a grass
hopper with those long arms pointing
out that way. You didn't know what
Ettie Forrester was about that summer,
did you? Well, it was all my own no
tion. I thought it would be so nice to
teach 'the young idea,' and all that, you
kif?7w. But dear me, Mena, theory and
practice are two different things, and
while the school-house looked so roman
tic five hundred miles away, and the
children were so sweet and cherubic,
anil the spelling-book possessed attrac
tions I had never discerned in younger
days, the romance faded out, and left
w in a decided matter-of-fact mood be
fore the door of the little red shanty
and the rows of snubhy children in blue
checked aprons and bare feet. However,
1 suppose I shall astonish you still more
by saying J braved it out and taught my
live months, and was made a better girl
with that contact with the world by
those walks in solemn woods, among
tbji- grand old pines; by but mercy,
Mena, you needn't think L'm going to be
sentimental, for I'm noil I had a nice
boarding place with a widow and her
two little girls. I was glad there was
no possibility of my having any one to
flirt with. I was afraid I could not re
sist tie temptation, if I had, and I was
heartily sick of it. Imagine my con
sternation when one morning at the
breakfast table I met Mr. Bond, ire had
come up to see his Aunt Mary. "What
under the sun he wanted to see her for
I can't tell ; for he hadn't honored her
roof with his presence beneath it for
seven years ; but there he was, eating
berries and cream :is coolly as if he
owned the whole farm. Such dignity! I
was awed by his bow, and felt like
fffeathing an iceberg when he addressed
me. Then a reaction took place, and
" 'action and reaction being equal in ot
posito directions' as our natural philos
ophy used to tell us I laughed in his
face at a remark he made concerning
the weather. Such an astonished look
as at first spread over his countenance!
adding with an amused look deep down
in his eye, and a slight quiver under the
dark moustache. I thought there was
some fun in him. I wasn't mistaken,
either, but for weeks I labored to get off
the frigidity, and dig down to where the
warmth and love of frolic lay. In vain
were my attempts. Dignity forever
sensed his motto; and wearied out, I
hoped something would happen to him
to startle him out of that everlasting
state of propriety. I was in despair; I
wished a rattle-snake would chase him,
that he'd slip down in the awful mud
they have in those regions, and get up
covered with the yellow mixture; that
he would burn his mouth with the hot
coffee sand drop the cup making a
spurge in th.it way; anything, so that
I could see him unbend; for hadn't he
come in and criticised my school, and
found me puzzling my brain over a hard
example in fractions? Hadn't I actual
ly been obliged to ask his help in one of
those hard things in the back of the
rf arithmetic; and hadn't my very best
spelling class disgraced themselves and
me by their attrocious murdering of
their native tongue? There was a beau
tiful stream running through the village
and in the center of the river a little
island, not much larger than a good j
9i?fW dining plate, with one graceful
willow drooping its long branches to the
water. It was a perfect little arbor and
my favorite resort. A boat fastens to
the shore the only means of cenveyance
to the island.
One night I was walking by the riv-
- e thinking of Will Hale, my oldest boy
who had been raising particular Cain
that day not a very refined comparison
but expresses the idea perfectly; so,
please excuse it, dear. I couldn't decide
whether to give him a sound thrashing,
to expel him from school, or to try once
nflfrre the effect of moral suasion.
"Sinful nature and patience tried to
the utmost leaned decidedly to the form
er, while reason and fellow feeling for
the boy defended his case ably. As I,
was sitting in judgment upon the case,
and about to pronounce sentence, I was
settled to see my boat grandly sailing
down stream, and looking up beheld
Mr. Bond on the island, leaning forlorn
against the willow, and gazing anxious
ly after it.
"Good," thought I, "now you are in a
"At the same time, seeing me, he ex
claimed: "Can you tell me how I can
get off this confounded place?"
"I laughed. 1 threw myself down up
on the grass when I could stand no lon
ger, and laughed till I had scarcely
strength to breathe. I was brought to
my senses at last by the gentleman join
ing in my mirth, with:
"Really, Miss Forrester, this is vastly
amusing, I know. I can sympathize
with your feelings in that particular
though I think you have the advantage
"And again he laughed. If he'd kept
on his dignity, I should have kept him
there all night, as true as my name was
Etta Forrester; but he seemed so jolly
about it, I took pity on him and started
to intercept the boat. The river took a
sudden turn a distance below the island,
and there carried by the current, was
my boa', safely lodged bytween two
huge logs. Just as I came again near
him, perched disconsolately under the
tree, the ludicrousness of the whole af
fair struck me so forcibly that! threw
down the oars for another laugh. One
fell over the side of the boat, and reach
ing hastily for it, I was capsized. I went
down laughing at the horritled expres
sion of Mr. Bond's face. As I was going
down the second time soler then, Me
na I felt.'rnyself grasped in strong arms
nd dragged on shore. It was some min
utes before I recovered consciousness;
but when I did I found myself clasped
tightly in Frederick Bond's arms, while
he was uttering all manner of things,
:md raving beautifully. I'd been grati
fiedhad seen hirn in a scrape, and
knew he loved me; sol rejoiced his
heart by letting him know I was alive
And just then who should come along
but Will Hale, in a boat out fish
ing, the naughty boy, instead of being
home learning the rules for next day's
arithmetic lesson. However, 1 fonrave
him, and tried moral suasion with fine
effect; for he turned out the very best
boy in the village. I finished my term,
and came home, and w;is married,great
ly to Aunt Maso s delight, for several
reasons, one of which was that Fred

Frederick B.md because he asked me,

Can We Ever Photograph Colore?
Every inquisitive person who has eyer
gone behind a photographer's camera to
admire the sharply defined and beauti
fully colored imago focused upon the
plate has wondered whether science
would finally succeed in seizing and fix
ing the tints there exhibited, as it has
succeeded in fixing the lights and shades.
In the fitness of things it seems as if
this ought to be achieved, sooner or
later. For forty years we have been
making the sun draw pictures in black
and white. This, from an unscientific
point of view, was the great problem.
To make the sun paint the pictures
which it draws, and copy nature in col
or as well as in form, would seem to
follow necessarily in the development
of the art, and the discovery of amethod
ought to be only a question of time.
If there is truth in a statement which
is now going the rounds of the news
papers, credited to the Loudon Stan
dard.the process of photographing in
natural colors has not only been discov
ered, but is actually practiced in Eng
land. The art is called Poikilography.
The patentee is a Mr. Lombard i, aud he
and an American Associate have bro't
the invention to a basis of practical
utility. In other words, they are mak
ing money out of it.
It is not surprising that the announce
ment of a discovery of such radical
importance as Mr. Lombardi's should
attract attention and excite interest
among laymen. But before fully ac
cepting the statement as fact, and cred
iting Mr. Lombardi with an achieve
ment that ought to place his name in
history beside tnose of Daguerre and
Talbot, it will be well to take several
things into account Three or four times
a year .we read of the discovery of per
petual motion. Once in a while we are
told that the squaring of the circle has
been accomplished. Descriptions of a
machine that goes of itself have long
since ceased to awaken enthusiasm
among physicists. Mathamatical pro
fessors hear of the squaring of the cir
cle without manifesting undue exulta
tion. They know, in the first instance,
tnat there cannot be perpetual motion,
and they know, furthermore, why it can
not be squared. Thus fortified with gen
eral principles, they are prepared to lis
ten with quiet amusement to any num
ber of rumors of the impossible.
As physicists regard perpetual mo
tion and as mathematicians regard the
squaring of the circle, so practical pho
tographers and scientific men generally
regard the prospect of photographing in
colors. They know that it cannot be
done. If auybody claims to do it, they
immediately set him down as either a
lunatic or a quack.
The story which the London Standard
has let loose from the limbo of exploded
canards is at least thirty five years old.
It has its origin in the experience of a
distinguished man of science. About
the year 1640, Sir John Herschel, in ex
perimenting with a prism and a camera,
found that when he received the solar
spectrum upon silver chloride, the neg
ative displayed several iamt but dis
tinct hues. It was thereupon reported
that the great discovery had been made
Unfortunately, however, the colors in
the neg ative failed to correspond with
those of the spectrum, and repeated ex
periments failed to show auy law of
non-corre3pondence. Herschel quickly
found that the phenomenon was due
entirely to an accidental circumstance.
Xot long after this, a French savant, M.
Neipee, announced a.similar discovery,
upon accidental conditions. In neither
case was there any connection between
the color of the ray acting upon the sen
sitive agent and the color produced
there. In fine, the hues observed on the
plates of Sir John Herschel and M.
Keipee were opalescent, due solely to
the thickness or thinness of the 01m on
rh frlrma anil nbithtar mnra nnr 1mm in
,. . ' , ,. , .
dicative Of a grand discovery than the
Bimilar colors seen in soap bubbles Or
l3inglK83, and on Shells Of mother Of
Kumors like that of 1S40, based on the
easily explainable phenomenon that at
first puzzled Sir John Herschel, have
been floating about among the uneduca
ted for more than 30 years, and from
time to time have found lodgment in
the columns of pseudo scientific jour
nals. It is now universally admitted by
chemists and physicists that natural
colors can never be produced by the
process of photogiaphy. There is a
broad philosophical reason for this be
lief. Color has no objective existence.
It is s'mply the brain's interpretation
of the rapidity with which the waves of
the ray of light beat against the retina.
Beats more rapid produce the sensation
of the mind known as violet; beats less
rapid, that known as red. The violet
and the red are nothing but the vibra
tions of the ether until they reach the
opt c nerve and communicate to that the
vibrations which the brain translates.
Until collodion, or fome other sensitive
agent, can be made to vibrate like the
optic nerve, and can be endowed with
intelligence like the brain, the undula
tions that fall upon it in a ray of light
will remain undulations and nothing
more. In other words, it is as impossi
ble to photograpn color as it is to photo
In order to appreciate the full bearing
of the heliotype process it is necessary
to allude a little to photography and
how the ordinary photograph is made.
Almost every one has sat for a photo
graph, and knows there are two steps
in the process.
Fiist obtaining an image on a glass
plate by means of a camera placed in
front of the object; and second, produc
ing its counterpart en a sheet of paper.
The glass plate is called a "negative;'
i Is counterpart on paper is called a "posi
tive," and is what in ordinary phrase we
designate a "photograph." In both
these steps the operator) is dependent
upon light both of the results are
chemical. The "negative is produced
by light acting upon the sensitive mate
rial with which the glass plate in the
camera is ooateu. As soon as chemistry
has firmly fixed the light-producing im
age on the glass plate the plate is placed
in contact with a sheet of sensitive pa
per, and the action of light is again in
voked to impress the image on the pa
per, and produce the "positive," or, as
we are in the habit of saying, "the pho
tograph." Now, each one of these "pho
tographs" requires a fresh use of the
"negative" and a fresh exposure to light
to produce It, thus making the process
of production very slow, cumbrous and
It is at this point the heliotype pro
cess separates itself from chemical un
certainties and betakes itseel to the
surer ground of mechanical methods. It
already has its "negative," as in the pho
tographic process. It now needs its
"positive" by rapid and sure means. To
do this it must first produce a "positive"
plateor matrix capable of mechanically
producing other "positives," aud tnus
dispense with the continued use of the
"negative1' and the continued use of
light (which comes only on unclouded
days) in every impression. The differ
ence between this process and ordinary
photography is that while both start
with the samo principle, the photograph
ic process employes the "negative" and
the indispensable agency of light for
any "positive" it makes, while the helio
type process uses the "negative as the
means of producing the "positive," and
that "positive" is capable of producing
an infinite number of others by the or
dinary process of printing with print
era' ink on the ordinary printing press.
The finest engravings are thus repro
duced with an exactness that betrays no
difference from the orginals. National
Premature Loss of tbk Hair, which is so
common nowadays, mayjbe entirely prevented
by the use of Burnett's Cocoaixe. It has
been used in thousands of cases where the
hair was coming out in handsful.and has never
failed to arrest its decay, and to promote a
healthy and vigorous growth. It is at the same
time unrivalled as a dressing for the hair. A
single application will render it soft and glossy
for several days.

ands of our western people will remember the
big knife and fork at the Centennial Exposi
tion last year. It was the largest knife and
fork In the world. The knife measured nine
feet eeven inches In length, the breadth and
thickness were in proper proportion as was al
! to the size of the fork. This was the product
of the Beaver Falls Cutlery Co., and the actu
al cost was tiSOO. It was one of the curious
things at the Eznosition and was enjoyed
highly by all visitors. The knife in itself was
only an exhibition or attraction to establish
the capacity and skill of American progress
in this line. No establishment In the country
was so well fitted to undertake a demonstra
tion of American workmanship. It is only a
few years since every body wanted to see
"Sheffield" stamped on a blade to insure good
goods. But the few years since our war have
shown that this was all a notion, for to-day
me cuuery oi American snops istne very best
in the world, and none in this country that
rank higher than that of this company. Prom
the establishment of the works in ISOo to this
day the best skilled labor has been employed,
the very best of English and American steel
has been used and a complete line has been
made including pocket and table cutlery. The
proprietors themselves are practical men and
no second rate poods have been permitted to
get into the market. With the best machine
ry and a thorough knowledge of the secrets of
tempering the bUdcs there is no reason why
this and other companies should not succeed
as they have, but to the credit of the Beaver
Falls Cutlery Co. it must be said it was left
for them to furnish the proof, and their services
to the country, in establishing the name of
American industry, have been rewarded by a
very large consumption of their goods. Th'elr

Yes, Betsy Ann could never hold her tongue,
would "blab out" all she knew. So one day
she fell in with old Aunt Polly Baker, who
had been sorely afflicted with Ckills and Fever
several years, and could find no relief. Betsy
Ann volunteers to say there was a remedy
that would cure her sound and well, and that
it did not contain any "bad medicine," that it
.lid not make "thunder In the head," that it
fairly "tore up" the chills, root aud branch,
and worked them out through the liver and
bowels, and that the article was known as
Day's Ague Tonic. Aunt Polly was cured very
soon thereafter. Go or send to L. II. Bush,
The Peerless Shaking Grate. There is
nothing which renders the home more cheerful
than an open ire grate; and there is no sys
tem or tneory oi ventilation equal to it. uur
western homes have been generally neglected
In this respect, but recently we find that this
introduction here and there in some of our
fine houses has created greater interest. Few
of us but that recollect something of the ge
nial hearth fire when our father's house was
radiant with the log fires In the old cabin. Un
der the stimulation of American genius, the
desire for ornament with comfon, the old
ways have been improved and to-day the grate
fire reflects Its warmth from one of the chief
ornaments of the house instead of the ungain
ly chimney of old. The competition for orna
ment and usefulness has been great, and Bis
eell & Co., of Pittsburg, Pa., the manufactur
ers of the "Peerless Kadlator Shaking Grate"
have obtained the greatest excellence. Pitts
burg is the natural headquarters for all this
class of goods. There the abundance of coal
has naturally (treated a demand for the open
grate. There also iron work of all kinds has
received greatest attention and hence we may
expectthatalargeand wealthy firm like Bid
sell & Co. would not rest contented unless
with their facilities they secured par excel
lence the grate that was wanted.
The "Peerless" is their own and is covered
by letters patent in every particular. Its con
struction is based upon scientific principles.
It is the only thoroughly reliable agitating
grate in use, as well as the most beautiful anil
ornamental grate in the market, and unequall
ed for economy, cleanliness and heating pro
perties. It is 'operated just as easily as any
stove, and its peculiar merits are thoroughly
appreciated by the people, for thousands of
them are in use and iu the handsomest resi
dences in the country.
Here In the State of Iowa where Improve
ments are continuing so exteuslvely, a State
growing more rapidiv thau any other in the
West, aud with our bountiful supply of coal
the Peerless Grate should be adopted as a
necessary adjunct to completeness. They are
made in' all sizes and styles to suit any chim
ney and at prices from f'JG.OO upwards accord
ing to the finish desired. The expense is no
greater than that of common stoves and they
are certainly more desirable. Here where fuel
Is cheap the grate will find its friends and

are the best. Be Bute to get the genuine.

accepted as the only remedy for one class, the
extract of the buchu plant is rapidly taking
its place as a sovereign remedy lor other of
those ills which afflict numanity. The type of
disease to which it is remedial is a broad one,

apology for commending tdlvcr ware as one of
the things which have a (crmanent value to
the family, viewing It from every aspect.
The point to be alined at in the production of
silver ware Is that which place it within the
roach of the masses. Solid ware Is too extru
sive, and platlog Is liable lo be done simply for
the market and not for permanent ue. lictirc
the importance of caution and discrimination
when you are about to purchoso the plated
ware. There is no way to determine the value

Trade marks and names aro of great value,
and especially In this line of goods. Thus, If
tho purchasers of silver plated waro will fee
that they get an article which bears the imnio
of " Simpson. Flail, Miller Jfc Co.," tney can re

wear, and goods that bear a permanent value,

On a visit recently to Wallingford, Connecti
cut, where the works of Simpson. Hall, k Co.
are located, wo were shown all alxiut tho pro
ocas of manufacture of silver waro. Tho ba-
els of good silver waro Is white metal, the com-

only secret. The mixture is cast iuto Ingots,
which are rolled into sheets ot any desired sire,
These sheets are made by powerful steam ma
chines, and the material becomes very hard
and Arm. From tho sheets are cut b'anks, af
ter patterns for the various articles which are
Intended to be made, Tht blanks then go to
the spinning room, where form and shape aro I
given them. This Is a very Interesting process.
In a moment, us It were, wo boo a blank sheet
rounded up and transformed luto a cup, a
pitcher, bowL, or the large urn, and It Is all
one and tho samo piece as before. Then
comes the soldcriUK, wture attachments, such
as handles, feet or spouts aro ufllxcd. The
metal ware is thus completed entirely, and
then It is polished thoroughly, and Indeed It

think. It U flnUhotl, but thU 1- Kll only in in-
paratlon. Alter the polishing process It Is
washed, then engraved. The engraving re
quires artists of the best skill. Hero the va
ried patterns which we see are produced, and
the work requires much time as well as skill.
After all this it Is ready for plating.
How Is it done ? Years of study by the best
minds have been spent In solving the Ix-st
method of doing good plating. Hut the pro
process Is very simple. Tho ware Is suspended
In a solution, and a machine which forces a
rapid current of elootrlclty does tho work, nnd
of course silver may be precipitated to any
thickness desired, and alike on all parts of the
article. The electric machine owned by Hlmp
son. Hall, Miller Si Co. is a very exjtensive one,
but Us vulue is still greater in the rapidity
and accuracy with which It does Its work.
When the plating Id done tho ware Is rough.
But then It goos to tho burnishing room where
the silver is packed and brightened, and hero
is a peculiar feature which this houso
prominence to. All I heir ware Is burnished by J
hand, not bufftd. Tho difference Is this: Huf
fing is machinery work, aud Is resorted to be
cause of the saving in lalor. Hand finishing
Is the rubbing of steel, tempered In the highest
degree, and itself burnished, upon tho waro as
it comes from the battery. It has been proven
satisfactorily that the buffing, or machine fin
ishing, cannot produce the hardness or com
pactness In the ware equal to the band finish,
and that tho silver ware produced by the buf
fing process docs not wear near so long. Hand)
finish attaches the sliver to the metal more j
firmly, fills up every poro more compactly, and
yet the difference Is rot observable to the pur- ,
chaser, his reliance being based solely upon the I
name which the article bear.

Each agent is under bond with good
