TOE LAWYER'S WARD.
.A Runaway Couplo from
Rev. Dr. Melton was just beginning
to feci at home in his now parsonage
when he was surprised one evening to
receive a call from Jib classmate Harry
'Leigh. In coHega days they had been
friends, and for awhile after their grad
uation they had exchanged letters and
visits; but tho letters and visits had
come to an end long ago, and it was
many years ainca they had met As
they sat in the book-lined study, each
C3cd the other curiously. Years sat
Jightly upon Mr. Leigh, and he was
dressed fashionablj', almost j'outhfully.
In his dark-red neck-scarf was thrust a
gold dog's head with ruby eyes, and to
tho parson the scarf and the dog's head
suggested a sporting character. He
knew that Mr. Jxugh was not a sporting
-character, and wondered mildly that a
highly respectable, prosperous, middle
aged lawyer should thus adorn his p t
fion. Moreover. Mr. Leigh hud brought
into the study a tall silk lint and a dap-
er little walking stick, and these he
mlil sis though they were far too
preciou to he laid on an unsympathetic
chair. He clung to them until the par
. Hon was filled with an unchristian de
sire to throw them out of tho window;
but instead, he broke oil' in the middle
of a sentence, took hat and frtick from
bis guest, and carried them to the new
Fo-ealled Queen Anne rack in the hall.
There ho left them, together with tho
engraved card that had announced Mr.
Leigh's presence in tho house.
Mr. Leigh, in the minute that he was
alone, smiled, and the smile had in it
touch of pitying ooudescension, and
-when the parson re-entered tho study
Ins guest scanned him leisurely. He
saw a tall, loose-limbed, awkward man,
-clad in black broadcloth of country cut,
with a low jgest that displayed a liberal
expanse of spotless linen. Dr. Melton's
.slippers were a little the worse for wear,
but ho knew that h's daughter would
surprise him at Christmas with a new
:p:iir, and meanwhile the old onos were
comfort able. His collar
and cravat I

they were well hidden by a flowing

in it than there were in his mustache.
From under his broad forehead a pair
of contemplative blue eyes looked at
the world with mingled shrewdness and
kiuduess, and they rested on his gue-t
with a s-ort .of comical surprise. He
thought Mr. Li'igh rather foppish in his
lre:s, and MOeigh hope.l that tho
country parson woidd .-oon bo intro
duce i "to a New York tailor, aud taught
town ways by some of the deacons in
the church to which he had been called
upon to minister.
"Well," he said, "and how do you
fauey tho idea of becoming a metropol
itan preacher, and seeing your sermon
garbled in .Monday morning's pajcr?"
The papers didn't garble my sermon
this week, the doctor said. "On tho
roatrar. tho reporters p'eked out tha
.best and overlooked the worst in tiio
ikindest and most flattering fashion."
Mr. Leigh laughed. "You won't be
-so amiable to renorters when you know
them better. This is quito'a change
from your old life, and an agreeable
change, no doubt. Or do you" believe
.that God made the country and man
-inado the town?"
"I believo Gcd made them both, and
man tries his best to spoil both," tho
"Ah. that's neat very neat Bv-the-way.
1 ought to call you doctor, l read
;your book on tho Atonement with a
good deal of p'easnro." The parson
-winced, bnt Mr. Leigh did not observe
that. "I don't wonder the college
'doctored you for it. though your ideas
must seem rather liberal o the musty
old fogies who peddle out Latin and
CJreek awl theology."
"I came near being ono of the musty
old fogies mysdf," said Dr. Melton.
They wanted me to bo a professor,
.but 1 prefer to be a parson."
A city parsoa," said his guest.
"X am aot so sure about the citv

me a moment's uneasiness; always at
work; steady-going; no boyish nonsense
Twenty-four," the parson repeated,
"and no boyish nonsense about him?
There is a good deal of nonsense about
my boy?. I am hap sorry to say. Still
I hope they won't disgrace me. Their

support a family. This waiting to
scrape together a paltry income is terri
bly hard on a young man. Yes, I mar
ried early, and I have every reason to
believe that my son will follow my ex
ample." "So!" the parson exclaimed, raising
his eye-brows very high. "I am glad
to hear that I marned early myself,
but it wai on one of the paltry incomes
a thousand dollars, to be accurate."
"A thousand dollars!" cried Mr.
Leigh, in horror.
"Yes; and we were happy." Dr.
Melton rose as ho spoko, hi eyes stray
ing toward a photograph of his wife
that stood on the mantel-shelf. He took

the while. 'l can't ofler you a cigar,''
he said, "but if a nine ""
Thank you. I liavo a cigar with
me." said Mr. Leigh.
The two gentlemen smoked Jfor a
minute in pensive silence.
"And when is your boy to marry?"
asked the doctor.
"Oh, it is not quite arranged yet."
"So you arrange marriages in Phila
delphia? And this particular marriage
is not quite arranged? Humph! I don't
understand that sort of thing. Up in the
country it is, 'Mary, I love yo'u,' and
'Jack, i love you in return,' and then
my services aro called for. How does
one arrango a marriago in Philadel
phia?" The touch of sarcasm was quite lost
on Mr. Leigh, who had crossed his legs
and sat absorbed in thought, frowning
at the patent-leather tin on his neat
.sho:?. His host watched him until he
uncrossed his legs and looked up.
"Have you any daughters, doctor?"
"Two of them."
"I hope so; otherwise thev will tower
over my head."
"And do you understand them?"
asked Mr. Leigh, with a gravity tlirtt
made the parson's blue eyes twinkle
and the corners of his mouth twitch.
"Oh no, I don't understand them; I
don't understand any crea'ure in pcrti
coats; but my daughters are good girls
and their mother assures me that they
aro remarkably gifted. Wlyit do I want
to understand them for?"
"It might b an advantage under
some circumstances," Mr. Leigh re
marked. "Curse it!" he exclaimed, with
sudden energy. "Oh, I beg your par
don," ho a'lded.
"1 don't mind; there are times when
a man is refreshed by the trill of a
curse," said the paiv-ou, who read Jean
Paul. "What is the matter, though?
What girl do you think it might bo an
advantage to understand?"
"My ward," answered Mr. Leigh
"bho :s an orphan, a far-away cousin
of my wife, and she has lived with us
for tho oast five vears. She h:is a nice
little fortune; she is pretty; she is well-
. . .. '
"That goes without saying," muttered
the narson, stroking his long beard.
"lJut she hasn't a grain of common
sense." Mr. Leigh rose, took up a
position on the rug, slipped his left hand
under tho short tails of his cut-away
coat, and gesticulated with his right as

Mr. Leigh's thin lips curled down
ward: he glanced at the parson for
sympathy, but he encountered a steady,
somewhat critical look. Dr. Melton
took the pipe out of his mouth and blew
a cloud of ssaoke upward through his
mustache. . ,
"Why shouldn't they live over the
shop?" ho said.
Oh, you don't understand," Mr.
Leigh exclaimed, fretfully. "She has
been brought up in luxury, and she
onght to have some idea of what is
proper and fitting. There has been a
terrible time. Why, I assure you I

"I don't exactly understand vour ob

he would not have jumped into this

but if she doc not love 'onr son. that

"He is not her equal." said Mr.
Leiirh. " You know in Philadelphia"
Tho parson rose up with a stilled ex
clamation that, coming from a lay
man's lips, might have sounded pro
"It is warm in here," he said. "I
want a little fresh air; I am not used to
a furnace-heated house. Poor girl!
The city has not yet claimed me for its
own, and 1 miss the lire-place in my
old study. Poor fellow!"
He threw up the window, and looked
out on a wild expanse of tiny high
fenced back yards; but overhead was
the clear so of sky, where the moon
rode at anchor amid the fleet of stars.
He stood there, drawing in the crisp
December air, until a tap sounded on
the door. " Come in," he cried, aud
one of his daughters entered a tall,
slim girl with her father's blue eyes.
" Papa," she said, pressing close to
him, and smiling mystcriouslv, "there
are some people in the parlor.'"
"Drawing-room, my dear." said the
doctor. "Wc are in Philadelphia."
"We arc not, but no matter,' she
returned. "I tell you there arc some
people in the parlor, and I think it is
our first town wedding. She is very
pretty, and she has on tho loveliest lit

said, suddenlr: "I will tell you. sir.

Tbe many species that men consume
them a gre.it variety of tlavor
and many degrees of nourishment. In
some parts of the earth fish form the
chief sustenance of the jxoplc Iu the
frigid zone, fish arc dried, ground to
powder, and converted int-j a substitute
for bread. Even putr.d fish forms the
ordinary food of whole tribes of men.
From tho earliest period of mankind,
fish has been their common nourish
ment. The llesh of fish is IcvS nutritious than
meat, aud differs iu the amount of
Idastic and fatty matter they contain,
hit generally we may fay that they
contain seventv-tive per cent, of water.
fifteen per cent, of nitrogenous
materials. The white fish, however,
contains only three pr cent of fat and
eighteen of plastic matter. Some are
not easily digested in the human
stomach. Others dissolve readilv, and.
enter and mingle easily in the circula
tion of the blood. It may bo well fur
the mother to know that some fish ate
poisonous at certain sea ioiis of the year,
and under the iulluence of certain kinds
of food, especially in hot and unhealthy
climates. They should not forget that
various articles of ordinary diet vary in
their in line, nee ujhmi the health aud
comfort of different children. Some
can not safely eat veal, or mutton, milk
nor strawberries. Shell fish (as lobitwr)
may induce cholera: in other? a pecial
form of nettle rah may appear; and in
still others, nervous maladies may
seominglv be caused bv eating certain
kinds of fish. Such cases are very rare,
aud have been ascribed to the food on
which some fi.-hes live, and to the
idiosyncrasy of persons so affected.
If iisli do not :eld as much nourish
ment as meat, still tho?e who live
chieily on this diet usual! v maintain a
healthy state of body, and discharge well
the iiMial itu ties of active life. Fish
eating children ultimately make healthy
and active men aud women.
Wo may find it convenient to form
two grades of fishes, namely, those that
have white llesh and those that have
red. The former have a looser texture
than the latter, and so are more easily
digested. Among the white-fleshed fish
are the perch, haddock, sole, cod, etc.
Their bodies usually contain but a
small amount of fat. Mich as usually
accumulates in the codfish and its rela
tives, whoso livers are ordinarily dis
tended with oil. White-colored fish, on
an average, contain nearly eighteen per
c-'nt. of plastic matter, .-eventy-eight
per cent, of water and four per cent, or
Jess, of fat
The red-fleshed fishes, as tne mack
erel, herring, eels, salmon, etc., are
di-tinguished by having fat mingled

most fishes, the fat abounds in the bel.y
part more than in the back, so that tho
former are not so suitable for children
