HIS TltUE LOVE.
And so, Ttosa,J am going away. Before
this reaches you, thoueandK of miles will
separate us, and it will be useless for you
to try to trace me. I shall leave property
enough to support you and the child, for
vou have been dear to me, hut I never was
wbrUy.of you; and now you must forget
"ore. I hsve tried in vain to conquer my
love for Florence Abcrnetby. Hy passion
for her is the one true love of mv lifetime.
I can not give herup, and we are going away
Tho little white-faced woman, hold
ing with trembing hands the blotted
ler.a-ead airain toe cruel leuer tne
stterfrorrilher idolized husband, declar
ing his love for another, and his resolve
to separate niniseii ironi ms juiuuy jur
that other's sake. It had come hours
before- she had read it over and ovtr,
and still she sat there, pallid, weak, not
half comprehending yet the trouble that
had comoupon her: conscious onh that
her heart's trust and love had been be
trayed, that fhe had lof-t the presence
dearest to her on earth. The spring
sunshine, finding its way through among
her callas and geraniums, lay warm
across the handsome carpet her birds
caroled lightly in their dainty cage; her
baby boy slept soundly in his ctib; and
outside were all the sweet, soft odors of
spring's buds and blossoms, and its
csuntless hymns of gladness; while she
sat there in ber dumb misery, question
ing if tbj3 were all true, if she had lived
to know her idol fa'se and base, and
her life's J03' forever vanished, or if she
were only in the mazes of a fevered,
She was one of those golden-haired,
exquisitely pretty little women, who
seem sent into the world expressly for
men to take care of, one who needed to
be loved and cared for always, and
hitherto she had known no lack of ten-
r derest devotion and affection. Six years
before Louis Alston had taken herfrom
the luxurious home of her childhood,
where she had known sorrow but by
name, tojiis own elegant residence, just
finished and furnished for his bride, and
yyirom Aheir i)rief , blissful courtship, they
had entered on what appeared an al
most perfect wedded life. The young
merchant was the most attentive of hus
bands, and Mrs. Alston lived in a
scarcely broken dream of happiness.
After four years came the tiny stranger
asking admittance to both hearts, and
then life seemed indeed complete to
pretty Kisalie Alston.
But when the little one could barely
utfer his parental title. Mr. Alston's
mien began to change. He ceased to
ivimn from his work tcilh ihm. liorht-
hearted smile his wife had learned to
expect; he forgot sometimes to kiss the
baby boy, of whom he had been so
proud; and his manner constantly be
trayed a bitter anxiety.
I must go away, Rosa," he said at
-, last; "some one must go, or our firm
' ' will-be ruined, and who can go but me?"
So, for the first time since their bridal
day, they were separated, for he went
away hundreds of miles, and she stayed
at home with little Lou.
All the long winter months she had.
waited, lonely, for his coming, and his
letters said often, - I shall be with you
soon ;" but he did not come. He wrote
sometimes of brilliant and unlooked-for
prosperity in his business, and of the
remarkable liveliness and cordiality of
the society in which he found himself,
but she looked in vain for a day named
.jp i?ior-4u& -return. At last came the terri
bhfletter that told her how he had sin
ned and fallen, and that they might
never meet again.
And all the half-dozen years of their
ilifafQrwedded life, she had been so sure
of his affection! Ceuld It he that in
this stranger he had found the one true
love of his,life? Bis picture hung on
the wall before her, looking down upon
her wlthTtbe beautiful dark-blue eyes
she nadf loved to watch; and looking
there oh that handsome face that was
bending jiow to an ignoble one, on that
shapelv head so dishonored, she cried
out at last, and wept in her agony. And
thus they found her in her helpless woe,
and kindly hands and voices ministered
to her in the fearful hours that followed.
"Do you know," queried a kind
hearted neighbor & few days later, do
you krimv what's the matter with Mrs.
- Alston?" .
" She is suffering under severe nerv
ous pjoitra'ion," answered the doctor's
wifa, who lived across the way, " and
tbev fear ornething won. Joiepk

Alston bag elopei with a jouMg lady
"Dear, dear! what won't men do?
But I should never hsve thought that of
Mr. Al.'ton, he always teemed to care so
much for his wife. How docs she speak

"She does not talk of him. She told
Mrs. L)nde that she bad rather tee him

"Poor litUe woman! I'm 0 sur
prised I can hardly think at all. How
could he leave the child? But I must
go right over and see if there is any thing
1 can do for her."
PoorBosalie AHtcm was xfbt left to
feel any lack of friends in her wcrae
than widowhood. Few who knew her
failed to offer sjmpatb and help. There
were none who didn't censure Louis Al
ston's heartless conduct. It was re
membered how tender and true she had
been to him from the day he brought
her to his home in her girlish loveliness
how careful and fond ; and he had not
elways been loyal to her, now said the
watchful world; 3'et for her sake Gossip
whispered to her votiriea the rumors
thatJ,onM Alston's l;fe had i.ot been
blsmelets, f jt the forsaken wife cculd
not, even now, hear a word spoken
"I would nevertrouble my head about
him again," said one; "1 would fctop
mourning, and let him go."
"1 would get a divorce, anu marry
again," said another.
"He wa? a scamp, any way, and she
has plenty of money and that dear little
boy left," chimed a third.
But to her they spoke gently always,
of her loss levcrcntly, as of the dead,
for she was beloved by all.
She stayed in the home where he had
left her. The roses bloomed by the
doorway almost unnoticed ; the vines
strangled untrained over the porch; the
garden lay neglected; the house was
quiet always, and the only happy thing
about it wns baby Lon, who ate and
slept and laughed and grew cheerily
enough, yet teemed to wonder some
times why mamma wept when, a half
forgotten face crossing his infantile
mind, he calkdfor "Papa!"
So the summer passed, and autumn,
with its softened sunshine, dying beauty
and weird melod'es came, rounding the
vcar since Louis Alston left his home.
A year! The pale woman, standing
where he had kissed bis pretty wile
good-by, looking so sadly unlike her
former self, aaked her aching heart how
many long, long 3 ears like this erelife's
hold must be loosed from catth, and
the years to come looked dreary indeed.
Once during the winter that followed
came a too officious friend, who bade
her be comforted.
"I have been where Louis was," said
he, "and learned all about the girl he
went away with. She is a silly, heart
less creature, and people said there was
no doubt ehe would leave Mr. Alston if
his health or money should fail. It
will be strange if he isn't a poor man
before many years go by, for he
had become very reckless with
his property, and then he will see how
much his new love cares for him. He
will receive his due reward, and you
will be revenged, never fear."
"I do not crave revenge," was the
only reply of, the true-hearttd wife, and
in the night watches she sobbed on her
wakeful pillow, "God have pity for
him, wherevtr he is! "
By and by the child sickened, and for
a rime the mother forgot all else.
" It's only a cold," the good neigh
bors said; "he'll be well in a day or
two." But the little one grew no bet
ter. There was a brief, sharp strug
gle with the Destroyer, then the baby
hands fell helpless down, and the sun
ny life was 3 ielded.
She was alone poor Rosalie Alston!
with only that sweet dead face and
tiny, cold form, and that beautiful pic
tured face of the absent one only
these left of her treasures. Yet not
alone , for nearer to the torn heart camd
the presence of the Infinite sj-mpathy
and love; orer the eary, impatient
spirit fell something of the peace of that
land wherein her babe was safe.
"It's wonderful how she bears her
trouble," said the doctor's wife across
the way; "suchafiail little creature,
"Yes; I'm afraid sometimes she'll
not be long with us, though," replied
the next-door ne'gbbor. " She docs
not say any thing about Mr. Alston, but
I doubt if there's ever a moment when
he's out of her mind."
" You don't think she would forgive
him if be should come back? She has
too much spirit for that."
"She has spirit enough, to be sure;
but hers is the true spirit. She has the
nobility that forgives the deepest
wrongs. She's worth a dozen like Lou
Alston, any day."
"Yes, he wrote the troth, surely,
when he said he was not worthy of
"But I believe his desertion will
grieve her life away. She is no more
like the pretty rosy girl he brought here
than a white violet is like a rose," and
the tender-hearted woman wiped her
spectacles to take a look over at the
tasteful dwelling of the lonely sister
woman, for whom her kind heart ached
"Poor, lonesome child!" she sighed.
"If Lou Alston thinks he has found a
better love than hers, he is mistaken."
There was never an hour of wakeful
ness, in which she did not remember
him. Her soul never lost its longing
for him. And the springtime coming
again, with its beauty and music, drop
ped none of the old-time life and joy for
her, from its perfumed wings, as it pass
ed, for the snow of chill despair still lay
over that year-old grave, where her
heart's fondest trust had been laid, and
on the turf over that little mound in the
village cemetery, so precious to her, the
grass had never been green.
"I must go away from here," she
thought, as the summer deepened. " I
must find work to do. I am wasting
time and losing energies that might be
of use to others. I must go away and
see if the world has any place for me."
But one day there came to her door a
weird old creature, who called herself a
fortune-teller one of those stramge
womenwho gain a livelihood by going
about the country begging the privilege
of telling "fortunes" for a quarter.
Pitying the old woman, Mrs. Alston
cave her a seat inside the door. The
wandering eyes fell on the handsome
painted likeness of Louis Alston that
hung on the wall opposite them.
Is that your husband's picture?" she
asked, with sudden interest.
44 Yes," was-the lowTeply.
44 Poor child! poor child!" muttered
the woman; and she glanced again
sharply at the portrait. Then she turn
ed to the pale wife.
44 He isn't happy, now," she said;
41 he isn't happy now. I've seen that
men, and I know he isn't happy now.
Msyl e he will come back to you;" and
refusing to say more, the old woman
j went her w&y.
No one coold tell whether the stranger
spoke truth or falsehood- No oe knew
where she had been in ber wanderings.
She might have seen that guilty fagi
trve. She aright thus have leaned
what she profeMcd to know of him.
Rosalie Alston waited there where be
had left her, notbeping, only dreaming,
of a powftla retara.

With trembling hands she sade
ready for her jouraey, dread and fear
half crushing the hope that had sprung
up within ber; hope that the unknown
friend was that lost one for whom ber
heart was breaking, fear that she might
be mistake, dread of being too late.
The morning train bore ber away, and
an evening train lift ber in the city to

was met by the clergymaa who had bid

gentleness, ho ul folded the story he
wished her to hear a story of wrong
doing that had met its just reward

to the room where the dying friend lay.
"I found him alone, utterly alone,
and ill," he said, in conclusion of his
narrative ; " there was no one near to
care for him, and I brought him here to
my home. lie needs only you now,"
and he left her alone in the death-chamber.
She bent over the pillow of the sick
man, over the face of the only man she
had loved, and his feeble arms, reaching
upward, clasped her trembling to his
bosem. He was true, true to her to the
last, and a throb of almost overwhelm
ing joy thrilled through the clinging
shroud of despair numbing her heart at
the thought. She took her place by the
bedside, to wait the coming of that oth
er visitant, whose cold hands were even
now stretched toward her idol. Tho
long night vigil was scarcely broken by
words. The sick man could not talk.
There was only a murmured prayer of
forgiveness, which was answered by the
ten derest, truest assurances of love;
there were no reproaches, no unavail
ing utterances of repentance, and the
wife's tears of anguish fell in silence.
44 Darling ! " he whispered, when the
darkness was giving place to dawn.
She laid her white face on the pillow
44 Darling, the moment is at hand.
You will be happier when I am gone. I
did not know till it was too late to go
back, that I had left the one true love of
mj- life ; but I was always unworthy of
you, my darling, and God is merciful to
you and me in letting me die. By and
by, when you forget, you will be hap

last breath on her lips, he died. Lizzie

How to Pay a Compliacnt.
To pay a compliment is to tell the
truth, and to tell it as though you meant
it. And the only way to do that is to
mean it. If a girl is pretty or accomp
lished ; if she plays well, or sings well,
or dances well, or talks well ; if, in a
word, she pleases, why, in the name of
common sense, (shouldn't she be told of
it? Don't blurt it out before every body.
That will only serve to make her feel
uncomfortable and make you appear
ridiculous. Say it quietly when oppor
tunity offers, but say it strongly. Con
vey the idea distinctly and fully, so that
there may be no mistake about it. But
don't say it " officially." Formality is
about the coldest thing known. More
than one maiden has been made happy
say for half an hour by a man's taking
the trouble to say a pleasant thing about
a toilet that he liked, and many of fash
ion's follies have been given up by girls
when they noticed a discreet silence
concerning them on the part of their
gentleman friends. A bewitching little
black-eyed beauty once said to a gentle
man, " I like to have you say sweet
things to me, it seems to come so easy
and natural." la general terms, it may
be said that it is always belter to say an
agreeable thing than a disagreeable one,
better for all parties. The gallant who,
when a young lady stepped on his foot
while dancing and asked pardon said,
44 Don't mention it; a dainty little foot
like that wouldn't hurt a daisy," not
only told the truth, but doubtless felt
more comfortable than the boor when
his foot was stepped on, roared out,
44 That's right; climb all over me with
your great, clumsy hoofs." Boston
Learn to Sew.
Aa effort is being made to introduce
needle work into the New York public
schools. It is proposed that boys as
well as girls shall be taught how to sew.
The idea is an excellent one, and should
be immediately carried into execution.
Any one who has seen an old bachelor
attempt to sew on a rear suspender but
ton without removing his pantaloons
must certainly favor teaching male pu
pils plain sewing. The old bachelor
aforesaid twists his head half way off in
order to locate the button, and with
thumb and forefinger holds it in its
place until he jibs the needle half way
through his thumb and we are obliged
to suppress his few ill-chosen and vigor
ous remarks. A smile of triumph illu
mines his face when he succeeds in get
ting the needle through one of the eyes
of the button, but it suddenly disappears
as he draws the thread slowly through,
and instead of seeing it come to a ten
sion, hears the button fall on the floor
and he makes some more remarks unfit
for publication. He forgot to bui'd a
knot in the tail of his thread. This neg
lect is soon remedied in the shape of a
knot as large as a pea, and after taking
a few stitches, needle sticks amidships
in the eye of the button; he can neither
push it through nor draw it back. He
backs up agaiai-t the wall, gets a lever
age on the needle, and bears hie whole
weight upon it. Of course the needle
runs into his hip to the depth of half an
iach, and he makes 600 remarks in lees
than 500 quarter seconds, but we cant
print 'em. By all means, teach the boys
plain aewing. Norristoum (PcnnJ) Eer

measure twenty-four inches. New sun
umbrellas come in dark wine shades
and gendarme blue.
Black silk dresses are scarcely made
this season entirely of plain silk; fig
ured or striped satin is employed to
finish even the simplest dress, while at
least a third of an elaborate dress is of
figured or striped satin, which is used
as folds, revere, counterpieces, vest, col
lars, etc. Decidedly elegant are the
vests of black satin with delicate pat
terns of mall flowers embroidered in
olive shades, faded green, gold and just
enough Turkey red and sky-blue to
brighten and shade the work. These
are seen only on the most expensive
silks with satin and lace trimmings, and
give a bright spring-like appearance to
the otherwise somber costume. While
black has ceased to be the street uni
form of American ladies, still black silk

M13. Reap, in Dr. F00U s Health j
Monthly for April, gives Xho following
recipe for a cake which she declares to
be both wholesome and palatable;
Ono cup of sugar, one cup of milk, two j
cups of flour prepared with yeast pow
'ler, the same as for biscuit, ono egg
well boa ten, with a little salt and spioo.
Stir all the ingredients together and
beat with an egg-beater till full of air
bubbles, and baku immediately.
In frying any thing the fat should
never bo allowed to boil. Its proper
heat for fryiruz may be known by ob
servation. When it reaches 3T. of
heat a faint blue biuokc rics which te 1
that it is ready for ue. if, however, it
begins to smoke before the thing to be
fried are ready to go in it its tendency
to boil may be checked by throwing in a
raw potato or a piece of bread, which
gives it something to work on.
Success ok Two Bovs. From 14
common dunghill fowls, from Jauuary
1 to March 29, we have havo received
fi7X pcrtr. hPHirtn hfitnhinf two clutehex
of chickens. One of the hens that was ,
set (on tneotnoireuruary; commenceu
hiying yesterday, and is still running
with her chicks Our fowls have had
no meat, only scraps from the table.
Their feed consists principally of screen
inns in the trouch at all times, and alw
burnt bone and oyster shells as much as !
they will eat. In our short experience
we find that wheat screenings have
proved the best egg-producing food, and
only costs CO cents per bushel. There
are people here who buy wheat at $1
per bushel, and do not receive as many
eggs from the same number of chickcas
as we do. Screenings have a variety of
other seeds in them, so that it makes a
change of feed. Our father says that
we must try and beat some of the ex
perts in producing cheap eggs. We are
two boys, aged respectively 10 and 12
years. C. tfc H". Wilde, Montgomery

EXTERMIKAT150 THE BoUEU. Mrs.
Arthur Galpin of Waterville, Ka3., tells
how she exterminated borers in her box
elder trees: "The borer commenced
operations about two feet from the
ground and gradually worked op the
trunk in a semi-circle. Now, I was de
termined he should not kill my trees, so
1 dosed him with coal oil, but it didn't
seem to hurt his digestion a particle. 1
was in a dilemma what to do next. 1
could not get him out with a knitting
needle, and I thought if the tree must
die, I would experiment on it any way,
so I took strong spirits of ammonia
(hartshorn) 'and poured into all the
wounds. I then took bar-5oap snd
made a salve of it and plastered over all
those wounds on the tree. To my great
relief 1 found I had at la&t headed the
borer, and now the trees are as well
and hearty as the rest that were not
troubled. They had only bored two
trees when I succeeded in exterminat
ing them. 1 wish some one would
E lease tell me, through this department,
ow to exterminate sand-burrs irom my
door-yard. I have cut and raked and
burned, but every spring they are there
in all their glory, with all their added
progeny. Some one please tell me,from
what will exterminate
them.1' Kansas Farmer.
Valuable to Peach-crowxrs. At
the twenty-fourth annual aoeeting of 'the
Western "New York Horticultural So
ciety Mr. Youngblood advised cutting
back peach trees in the early spring to
induce a strong growth of sew wood
for the Text year's fruiting. He also
advocated thinning out the fruit. His
plan is to thin out when the fruit is
about the size of cherries, leaving the
peaches five or six inches apart on the
limbs. This rigorous thinning, he con
tended, not only largely increases the
sue of the fruit, but entirely transforms
its character. Making it rick, jaScy and
aaelting. Aa equally important resmlt
is the greater rigor of the trees. The
pulp of the fruit, Mr. Youngblood ex
plained, 4oes not exhaast the vkalky of
the trees nearly so asach aa the pro
dactioa ef a camber of half-forraed
of little value. Thianiagi
peachea he eoatwdered a preventive of
