A' WIPE'S CONFESSION.
I did not marry for love. Very
few people do, so in this respect I
am neither bettor nor worse than
my neighbors. No, I certainly did
not marry for love. I believe I
married Mr. Cartwright simply be
cause he asked me.
This was how it" happened. He
was rector of JDevetou, and we lived
at the Manor House, which was
about ten minutes' walk from the
church and the rectory. Wo had
daily bcrvicc at Dovuton, and I
ucurly always attctidcd it, aud it
came to pass that Mr. Cartwright
invariably walked home with inc.
It wusji matter of custom now, and
I thought nothing of it; it pleased
him, aud, on the whole, it was rath
er pleasant to me also.
1 must cotilCiS, however, I was
rather, surprised when, one morn
iug as wc got to the avenue which
led up to the Manor House, Mr.
Cartwright asked me to be his wile.
1 have never beeti able to find out
why 1 said yes, but I did. Perhaps
1 thought it a pity to throw away
so much love; perhaps it was be
cause he was so terribly in earnest
that I dared not refuse him ; perhaps
I feared his pale face, and his low
pleading voice would over haunt
me if I rejected his love; or perhaps
it was because he only asked me to
marry him he did not ask me it I
loved him, fur I think he guessed 1
did not; perhaps it was all these
reasons put together; but anyhow 1
said ye.-, and iu due time we were
I ought to have been very happy,
for he was a most devoted husband,
but I was not, and, though I did not
notice it then, I know now that lor
the first six months after our mar
riage he was not happy either.
It was all my fault. I either
would not or could not love him ; 1
accepted all his devotion to me us a
matter of course, but I made no
e lib ft to return it; and I am sure he
had found out that he had made a
mistake iu marriug a woman who
did not love him.
One morning, about six mouths
afler our marriage, he told me at
breakfast that he intended leaving
me alone lor a lew weeks to stay
with his mother, who was not very
well, lie watched the effect of this
announcement 011 me, but, though I
was really displeased, 1 concealed
my annoyance, and asked catelessly
when he would start.
He replied, the next day if I had
no objection, aud so it was settled.
He was more alTuctiunuie than
uluuI tLot 1m' iiikI X v.u jt!fl
than ever; 1 only once alluded to
his journey, and that was to ask if I
might have my sister Maud to stay
while he was gone.
The next morning I was anxious
to avoid a formal parting, so 1
drove to the station with him; as
the train moved oil', I remembered
this was our lirst parting since our
marriage, and I wished 1 had not
been so cold.
When 1 got home the house look
ed so dreary and empty, and there
was no one to meet me; presently
one of the servants caiue for the
shawls, and with her Xcro, Mr.
Cartwright's retriever, which, when
he saw I was alone, set up a howl
for his master. 1 patted him, and
tried to comfort him, feeling re
buked by his grief, as he followed
me, whining, into the house. Every
room seemed empty, and each spoke
of the absent master; at last I wan
dered into his study, where he spent
his mornings, aud liked 1110 to sit
and work ; aud now 1 remembered
how often 1 had excused myself,
saying I preferred the drawing
room, and this reflection did not
add to my happiness.
There was a photograph of me
standing, on his writing-table, and
another on the chimney-piece; on
the walls hung two or three of my
drawings, which he had begged of
me when we were engaged; indeed
the room was full of little remem
brances of me; I opened a book I
had given him, and iu it was his
name in my handwriting, and un
derneath in his own, " From my
darling wife." I laid it down with
a sigh, us I thought how carefully
he treasured everything 1 had ever
given him, aud how little care 1
took of all his gifts to inc.
Everything I attempted, every
thing 1 Iookud at, remiuded me of
his goodness to me, and of my cold
ness and ingratitude to him. At last
I went to bed, after working myself
into a fever of anxiety lest he should
not have reached the end of his
journey in safety. I at length cried
myself to sleep.
The next morning I went down
to breakfast with a heavy heart, for
I knew I could not hear from him
till tho next day; it seemed so
strange to breakfast ulouc, and Nero
appeared to think so too, for he was
most unhappy, sniffing round his
muster's chair iu the most melan
My plate, for the first time since
my marriage, was empty, as I sat
down to breakfast, for my husband,
who was au early riser, always had
a little bouquet to greet me with
every morning; frequently I forgot
all about it, and left it to be put
into water by. the servant; this
morning I would have treasured it
most earefullv, if he had gathered
After breakfast I determined to
rouse myself, and go and visit some
of the poor people in the village, so
I filled my basket with some little
delicacies for the sick aud set out.
"Wherever I went it was the same
story; all held forth on my hus
band's goodness and kindness, for
all had been helped by him in some
wayr other, and all loved aud re
spected him. As 1 listened with
burning cheeks, I felt us if I was the
only person on earth who had treat
ed him with cruel ingratitude, and
I was the very person whom he
most loved and cherished.
At last I went home, tired and
sick at heart; but there was no one
to notice I was pale and worn out,
no one to give mc wine or soup to
revive mo, no one to make mc lie
down and rest, as he would have
done had he been there. Oh, how I
missed him ! "What a fool I had
been! "Was there ever woman lov
ed and cared for as I had becu ?
Was there ever friend so ungrate
ful? Oh! why had I let him Icavo
me? I was sure he would never
come back. Why had lie gone
And conscience answered, " You
drove him ; he guvu you all he had
to give, and in return you gave him
nothing but cold looks and unkind
words; and so he left you, to seek
love and sympathy from his moth
er." This thought almost maddened
inc. In fancy I saw her sitting in
my place by his side, loving and
caressing him, us I had the best
right to love and caress him ; 1 pic
tured her receiving tenderly the
little loving acts I had received so
coldly, and now I was seized with a
jealous auger against her. I men
tally accused her of estranging my
Inishniul frrtiii m nc t lirtntrli I114
, .. .....D
heart was not larc enough for both
of us. "When Maud arrived in the
alternoon, I treated her to a long
tirade of abuse against mothers-in-law
iu general, and my own in par
ticular, and I vented all the anger I
really felt against myself on the in
nocent Miv. Cartwright.
" Why, Nelly," said Maud, " I
thought you liked Mrs. Cartwright
so much, and thought hor so nice
that you even wanted her lo live
with you, only your husband very
propcrlv, as mamma says, object
ed." 'So I did," I answered ; '"but I did
not know that she would ever entice
my husband away from me iu this
way, or, of course, I should never
have liked her."
"Ueally, Nell, you are very hard
on" the poor woman ; for, as I un
derstand, Mr. Cartwright went to
her of his own free will, because
shu was not well, and ho thought his
company would do her yood," said
"Nonsense; I am sure he would
never have left me alone unless she
had put him up to it," I replied,
"The truth is, Nelly, you arc so
much iu love with our husband
that you are jealous even of his
mother, and you are making your
self miserable about nothing. Why,
Mr. Cartwright will bu baek in a
fortnight, and I dare say you will
gel a letter Irom him every ly i
-limn' !. '! i mo go lor u drive,
1 agreed to this plan, aud, giving
Maud the reins, I lay back and
thought of her words. Was she
right", alter all? AVas I jealous?
Was I really, as Maud said, in love
with my husband? Had I only
found it out now that I was depriv
ed of his company? Was this the
reason l hat 1 rould do nothing but
inwardly reproach myself for my
conduct to him? And the longer I
thought the more convinced I be
came that Maud was right that I
wtis jealous, and that I was iu love,
as she called it. This knowledge
did not make me happier, for I no
sooner knew I loved him than I
longed to tell him so, aud make up,
as far as I could, for all my former
cruelty; for I could call my conduct
by no milder word. I passed a
sleepless night, and, as I lay awake,
I composed various letters of con
fession, which I resolved to tend
the following day; but when morn
ing came my pride stepped in, and I
began to feel it would be impossible
lo write, aud I settled that I must
wait till my husband came home,
and then tell him how his absence
had altered me.
I got up early and walked out to
meet the post-man, so anxious was
I to get a letter from him; it was
the first I had ever received from
him since our marriage, aud no girl
was ever so anxious for, or so
pleased with, her first love-letter,
as I was over this.
It was a long letter, full of loving
messages and terms of endearment,
all of which cut mc to the heart, for
they sounded like so many re
proaches; iu reality I think there
was a tone of gentle reproach
throughout the letter. He gave mc
an account of his journey, and of
his mother's health, begged mc to
write a few lines every day; but he
said not a word about returning.
I spent the morning in answering
it, much to Maud's amusement, who,
of course, thought I was pouring
out volumes of love and complaints
of my temporary widowhood; after
tearing up a dozen sheets of paper,
I at last sent a short note, cool and
with no allusions to my misery.
The more I tried the more impossi
ble I found it to write any express
ion of love or penitence, though 1
was hungering to do so.
For a whole week I went on iu
this way, sullering more acutely
every day, and every day receiving
loug, loving letters from Mr. Cart
wright, aud writing short, cold
I lost my appetite; I could not
sleep at night, and the torture I was
enduring made mo look so ill that
Maud became frightened, and de
clared she would write and summon
my husband home, aud tell him I
was pining away for him. I forbade
her doing this, so sternly that she
dared not disobey me, for I was de
termined he should never hear from
any lips but mine that at last his
heart's desire was attained, for I
At last, when he had been away
ten days, I could bear it no longer,
for I felt I should have brain fever
if I went on in this way, so I deter
mined to go to Melton, where Mrs.
Cartwright lived, and see my hus
band. 1 came to this decision one
night, aud went into Maud's room
early in the morning, to tell her my
intention. I expected she would
laugh at me, but I think she guess
ed something was wrong, for she
seemed glad to hear it, aud helped
mc to pack a few things and set off
iu time to catch the morning train.
It was three hours' journey; they
seemed three years to mc, for the

more impatient I was to see him.
At last we got to Melton a largish
town. Of course, as 1 was not ex
pected, there was no one to meet
mc, so I took a fly to Mrs. Cart
wright's house, where I arrived
about 3 oVIock.
I learned afterwards that Andrew
was with his mother in the little
drawing-room when I drove up,
but, thinking I was only a visitor,
he escaped into another room, so I
found my mother-in-law alone.
By her side were some of my hus
band's socks which she was darning
socks which I had handed over to
the servants to mend, and which I
now longed to snatch away from
his mother. His desk stood open, a
letter to me, which he wan writing,
lying on it.
The servant announced me as
Mrs. Andrews, my voice failing as
I gave my name, so that Mrs. Cart
wright held up her hands iu aston
ishment when she saw who it was.
"My dear! Nelly! Has anything
happened? How ill you look!
What is it?" she exclaimed.
"I want my husband," I gasped,
sinking on to a chair, lor I thought
I should have fallen. Without an
other word Mrs. Cartwright left the
room ; I feel sure now ehe guessed
all about it, and I can never thank
her enough for forbearing to worry
mc with questions as to what I had

to him; in another minute I heard
his step outside the door, and then
he camu in.
"Nelly, my love my darling!
what is it?" he cried, as I rushed
into his outstretched anus and hid
my face on his breast, sobbing bit
terly. For some moments I could
not speak ; at last 1 recovered my
self enough to sob out :
"Oh, Andrew, my love! my dear
love! canyon ever forgive mc? I
came to ask you, and to tell jon I
can't live without you." I would
have said more, but his kisses slop
ped my mouth, and when at length
he let mc go there were other tears
upon my checks besides my own.

him that he had left me to try what

mc; for he had felt for some time
that my pride was the great barrier
he had to overcome to win my love.
He had judged right. He was too
generous to tell me how much he
had sulfcred from my indillcrcnce,
hut I know it must have grieved
him terribly. He is a different man
now, he looks so happy, and I know
he would not change places with any
one on earth. "We went back lo the

have some 6uch memory. I know
a lady whose childish life was made
wretched for a year by an obstucle

The first day of every fair is de
voted to fixing up generally, making
new entries, and getting stock on
to the grounds. Tho display of
yesterday is not lu .1 -hape that
justice could be done to it, and the
Journal's report will have to be
general in its character.
Few of the people of Lancaster
County, or eveu Lincoln, will notice
all of the many additions and im
provements made ou the State Fair
The most important is tho 'Lan
caster County building," which con
tains the Lancaster count) agricul
tural display. Also their fruit and
floral display. In the north wing
of the same building will be found
the fruit display from all of the
counties that are old enough to grow
the beautiful aud highly flavored
apples, pears, peaches, and plums,
that experience teaches the citizens
of this State, can be produced every
year iu Nebraska.
This new building is ."WxtSU feet,

was little over one thousand dollars,
it is made iu a first class-manner,
and by the addition of windows,

building as will ever be needed.
The ladiiM of Lincoln have done
a fine thing decorating the building
which will be ouc of the greatest at

STALLS AXD 1JOX STALLS.
Over one hundred new stalls have
been built, and still the demand is
tor more. Double the amount of
stock is already entered of any pre
ceding State Fair, and it U very
desirable that the number of box
stallrf be increased so as to meet the
demand. This will have to be dune
another year. The managers have
done everything in their power,
have Used all the money contribut
ed by the citizens of Lincoln to good
advantage, and still the cry is for
more. As the State grows older the
State Fair assumes gigantic propor

The display of fnrm machinery is
very large, and all the space is well

the fair will be regularly opened,

THE SPEED KINO.
O'ocd trotters are on the grounds.
Some very exciting races will be on
the programme for each day.
The amphitheatre has been care
fully fixed up, and is now better
than at any previous fair. Many ad

that arc scarcely noticeable, but go lo
make up a. successful fair.

be ouc dollar and fifty cents. The
regular train will arrive at 1 :'J5 p.
m. and the special will leave Omaha
on the arrival of the trains from the
West and North.
THE EXIIiniTION KINO
Has been enlarged and entirely re
built. A new lcuce takes the place
of the old one, aud has but one open

stand for the Judges has been built
in the centre of the ring, and none
except those having stock on exhibi
tion will be admitted within the
fence during the examination of
stock. Special police will be detail
ed to see this order enforced.

The hairless calf is certainly a

near Table Bock, and is, therefore,
pre-eminently a Nebraska product.
No spirituous liquors are bold on
the grounds. The wheel of fortune
was not running, and only the pho
tograph trick3 with money behind
them, offered any inducement to
suckers yesterday. You pays your
money aud take your choice.
Nothing is lacking in the grounds
except shade trees. Trees we must
have. The people of Lincoln and
Lancaster county must have an
arbor day next spriug aud plant
trees all over the fair grounds. It
takes so little time for trees to grow
in Nebraska, that there is 110 axcuso
for not having them. Let this mat

body interested in retaining tho

A l'revulent Vice.
Surely profanity U 0110 of tho
glaring vices of tho day, and no
where is it exercised more freely than
iu u country village. In cities prof-mo
swearing is not common iu tho
streets. The individual in such com
munities acquires n respect for tho
rights of his neighbors, and among
multitudes he has to be cautious iu
regard to the prejudices of nil. Any
such acts as obstructive swearing in
the streets would soon arouse tho
attention of the policemau as tho
representative or agent of public
sentiment. Iu many country villa
ges a dill'erciit state of things seems
to prevail. Profanity is not a thing
lo be ashamed of, but is a sort of
manly accomplishment. In the bar
room and the corner grocery the air
is blue with strantrc oaths flung out,
not in anger or by way of execra
tion, but merely to strengthen, adorn
and finpimcizc discourse. Au ex
pletive is the rural American's great
features of rhetoric. It serves to
describe a girl's beauty, to cstimato
a horse's speed, to measure tho
wheat field. It is aclim-ix of invec
tive against au eucmv, the chief ar
gument iu a Jiccussiun, (he point of
every witticism. Two men cau not
meet iu the street without adding to
each other's health choice specimens
of profanity. Plenty of decent peo
ple passing by must bu shocked, but
they are powerless to express their
indignation, for profanity has got
to be a country habit. This vice of
indiscriminate swearing, setting
aside its indecency, tends to currupt
the use of language and destroy its
capabilities for expressing any emo
tion. A bad habit, neighbor; mas
ter it before you become its slave.

Borne tried inflation by debasing
coin leaving the nominal or face
value the same, two thousand years
since. France tried the same thing
no less than three times, undera dif
ferent form each time. But strange
to say, in the experience of tho
French, a3 iu all other cases, no mat
ter what theoni of inflation thcre
unltis have been uniform, namely,
disaster and distress.
James II. inflated the currency
by debasing the coin of Ireland.
The English inflated the paper mon
ey issues time and again between
17J7 and 1S30. Austria has tried
inflation, over and over again, sinco
1702 down to 1873. Jtussia has tried
the same plan to jret rich. Our col
onics before, during, and after tho
revolution tried inflation, using
every legislative and even polico
power to make bills "as good an
gold." The continental congress al
so tried it. Now iu all these cases
and every other case in the history
of the world inflation has proved a
disaster and not a blessing. Our
experience iu 1837, 18-17, Ic-37, and
18U5 to 1873 is the same, fir3t pro
ducing unhealthy activity, causing
people to be deluded with the no

inducing unwise extravagance, pro
