'There, now, you're banging tli.it
door again, Miss Jenny; I declare
to goodness vott children would
worry the patience out of a saint."
"Oh, never mind, Sally," I said,
punting after a race to get into the
house ill st a race I had won, for
Li I and Cissy were yards behind.
"Never mind, indeed !" cried Sal
ly, "ami there's your fine cou-in
down to-day from London. 1 won
der what she'll say when she sops
you racing around the meadow like
so many wild colts, and your arms
all brown and scratched, uud the
hooks all off jour dress. I never
see such children, never."
"But you like us, Sally," I said,
gelling hold of her rough, fat, red
aim, and laying my cheek against
"I don't, I declare I don't," she
cried impetuously ;aijd to show her
dUIike she threw her aims around
mc and squeezed my nose nearly
Hat against the piece of hard wood
she used to wear inside her dress.
Sally was our house-maid, parlor
maid, and nurc-niaid, all in one;
and it used to seem to me that she
spent all her leisure time in quar
reling with the cook and snubbing
us ; but for all that one of my prin
cipal recollections during the fever
I had so long was waking at all
times to see Sallj's red face watch
ing over my bedside, and I knew
she did all cook's work for six weeks
as well as her own, when poor
cook linil such a sad accident and
cut her hand.
Wc three Lil, Cisy and I had
a long discussion about (Jouin Kate
and her visit, and we all felt what
dreadful little rag-muffins we would
seem to her, for I am afraid we had
been running wild, though papa on
ly used to laugh nt it, and would
come into the school room when
mamma was busy with U3 over our
lessons, whenever it was a fine
morning, and cry: "Now then,
girls, the sun shines and the birdn
arc calling. Out with you I Learn
lessons when it rains."
I knew afterwards why this was.
Papa has a horrible nervous dread
of our growing up weak and sickly,
for his was a delicate family, and I
had heard that our cousins were of
ten very ill.
"I can guc3? why Cousin Kate is
coming to stay with us," said Lil.
"I know why 6he"s coming," I
"It's because she's ill," shouted
Lil, for fear I should fehow mV
"Sally will take her new warm
milk with an egg in it before she
gets out of bed iu the morning," said
Cissy, solemnly, "that will soon
make her well."
"She shall have all the eggs speckle
lays," said Lil, "and Jenny will
take her every niornhie to the old
garden seat under the trees. She's
sure to get well there."
And so wc did,. for Cousin Kate
came that afternoon a tall, pale
girl, with a sad, weary look in her
face, as she gazed wistfully from one
to the other.
We three girls stood back quite
in awe of the well-dressed lashiona
ble looking lady, who wa3 so dif
ferent from what we had expected,
while mamma went up to welcome
her, and took her in her arms in a
teuder affectionate way, saying:
"My dear child, we are so glad to
Cousin Kate threw her arms
around mamma's neck and burst
into a fit. of sobbing, hiding her face
from sight. We did not see any
more of Cousin Kate that day, but
our young intcicst was deeply ex
cited, and somehow, perhaps, fos
tered by dark hints dropped by Sal
ly, who was a blighted flower, hav
ing been crossed iu a love affair
with the horse-keeper, of a neigh
boring larm. Wo girls got to think
ing of our cousin's illness 9b a kind
of mystery connected in some way,
how we did not know, with the
Our awe of the sweet, gentle
cousin fell off the very next day,
when we took possession of her,aud
led her around our dear old country
home, with its wilderness of an or
chard, great garden shrubberies and
Her coming seemed to mark an
epoch i:i our young liycs, for, see
ing how weak and delicate she was,
we used to vie one with the other
iu being quiet and gentle, waiting
upon her in the most unnecessary
way, like slaves, and always ready
to rush off most willing messengers
to forestall any little wants she ex
pressed. This came natural to us; but on
my part it was increased by a few
words which I heard pass between
papa and mamma, mamma saying
that she did not think poor Kate
would ever grow strong again but
slowly wither away. I gave a great
gulp as I heard these words, and
then burst out sobbing violently.
"You here, Jenny!" said mamma.
"Well, my dear, as you have heard
what we said, it must be your secret
too. Never let your poor cousin
know what we think, and never be
have to her as if you thought she
could not recover."
I promised readily, and at four
teen the possession of that secret
made me more womanly than my
sister, as I redoubled my tenderness
to the suffering girl.
The invalid was nineteen a great
age iu niyestimation and I ik-ed to
look up to her with veneration,
gazing in her soft, sweet face and
wistful eyes, wondering why she
was so ill, and what was the great
sorrow that had come upon her like
a blight upon one of the roses round
Coumu Kate came to us in the
spring, and the months flew by till
the height of summer; and many
a night had I turned my face to the
wall, so that Lil should not know,
and cried silently till my pillow was
wet. Fori knew so well that Kate
was weaker than when she came; a
walk across the lawn to the old garden-seal
in the shade being as much
now as 6he could bear.
"Cousin Kate," I said one day
when we were alone, Lil and Cissy
having rushed off to get some flow
ers, "couldn't any doctor make you
She looked at me with a wild,
strange gaze which almost slarllod
me before she replied, and then in
a way which made my heart beat,
she sobbed out :
"Only one only one!'' and then
as if to herself, in a low whisper,
she added, and before ho can come
I shall be dead dead!"
She did not know I heard her last
word", and I sat chilled and fright
ened, gazing at her till my sisters
came back, when, as we frequently
did, we sat down about her; Lil got
upon the seat, Cissy 6at upon the
grass with her head against one of
Kate's hands which hung listlessly
from the corner where she leaned,
and I threw myself on the grass at
her feet so as to look up in her gen
tle face which had now become calm
with its old weary look.
"Cousin Kate," said Lill, "tell us
"Yes," she said, quietly raising
her head and looking at me, "I am
"Tell ns one then," cried Cissy
eagerly, "one that you have never
told us before'
There was a silence then for a few
minutes, and as I guzed up in Kate's
face I saw her eyes close and a sort
of6pasm twitch her lips; but the
next minute she was quite calm, and
then, with the leaves whispering
round us and the twittering of birds
coming now and again from the
distance, she said in a low, sweet,
"Once upon a time in the days
long ago, when people were very,
very happy on this earth, there liv
ed a prince who was young, and
handsome, and true. Nearly every
one loved him, he was so manly and
yet so gentle."
"And he loved a beautiful prin
cess," put in Cissy.
I eaw the spasm cross Cousin
Kate's face again, but it was calm
again directly after, and she went
"No, dear," she said, "he did not
love a beautiful princess, but a poor,
simple girl, who loved him, too,
with all her heart, and they were so,
so happy. "When the flowers blos
somed they seemed to blossom only
for them, and tho birds sang their
sweetest songs for them iu the sun
shine." "Yes, and they were married and
lived happy ever aftor,"cried Cissy,
There was onco more thr.t piteous
look upon Cousin Kate's face, seen
only me; but it passed off and
she went on. j
"No, Cissy, they were not, for the
poor, young prince had enemies
cruel, bitter enemies who slander
ed him and said that he had made
false keys, and opened tho treasure
chest of a great man, and stolen
away his gold and precious stones."
"Oh," whispered Cissy, so deeply
"And," continued Kate, "they
took the poor prince and there was
a great trial, and though he declared
he was innocent, the wicked people
who slandered him and bore false
witues? against him prevailed ; and
the great judge said that he was to
be. cast into prison, and wear heavy
chains, and be kept there for 21 long
"Oh," cried Lil.
"Yes," said Cissy, "I know, and it
was then that the brave young girl
who loved him went and unlocked
the prison gatc?,struck off his chains
and he was free."
"No no," cried Cousin Knte, and
her voice altered terribly, so that I
was alarmed, though I could do
nothing but gaze up iu the wild
face before mc, for now a change
came over it. "No," she cried, "t he
poor girl could do nothing but sit
and weep, and feel her broken
heart beat beat heal, iu its own
prison while wearing itself out till
till she died, and Oh, Frank!
what have wc ever done that we
should suffer this?"
I leaped up to throw my arms
around her, while my sinters shrank
away iu alarm; for Cousin Kate
turned away from tt9 with a bitter
wail, buried her faco in her hands,
and threw herself half over the arm
of the old garden scat, sobbing in a
wild, hysterical way, such as I had
"Kate, dear Cousin Kate," I sob
bed ; but even ns I spoke there was
a hasty step on the gravel, the bushes
were torn aside, and the shadow
of a tall man was cast over us.
"Kate darling, lie cried, catching
her up in his anno, as I was thrust
rudely aside, "I am innocent and
She did not hear him, for she
gave a faint gasp and sank back in
sensible. We three girls were almost stun
ned ; but wc saw the tall, thin, pale
looking stranger hastily lift poor
Kate from the seat and literally
run with her to the house while we
followed more slowly. As we
reached the porch we met papa run
ning out, and in a very short time
he returned with the doctor. But
this doctor was the wrong one; the
right doctor had come to us at the
garden seat, and it was his words
that had brought our dear Cousin
back to life, and in the course of a
few months to health.
For Frank Roberts was reinstated
in the government oflicc from which
he fell in a higher post, one which
gave him the confidence of the
higher officials; while the man
through whose treachery poor Frank
had suffered a year and a half before,
died confessing that he had been
the guilty party alone.
Oh ! those happy days when the
roses were coming back day by day
to Cousin Kale's cheek, and when
Frank, who was down at the old
place every Saturday to stay lill
Monday, used to be sent to play
and romp with us girls. I can
hardly believe that thirty years have
glided by since then, but so it is;
and even to this day we call dear
old gray-whiskered Frank, "Kate's

I believe woman N the equal of
man, and has all the lights of man,
and one more: that of protection.
I believe the institution of marriage
to be the holiest and most sacred
institution among men. Yet it took
thousands of years to advance from
slavery up to the marriage institu
tion. 1 hate a man who thinks he
is head of the family. I do. I de
spise him. I hate one of those dig
nified men who was not a dunce.
Solemnity is a breastwork which
mediocrity throws up to defend
itself from the eyes of the world. I
hate a man who is an nristocrat iu
his own family, and whoso wife is
obliged to be a beggar. She says:
"I want a dollar," and asks for it as
if she were standing on a bomb
shell, and he replies, "What did jou
do with the fifty cents I gave you?"
Ilowmany women are obliged to be
continual beggars! How can you
raise children iu such an atmosphere-?
It's a terrible thing; it's
wretched and iuiamous. I believe
in the democracy of the family.
Everv home ahould he a little re
public in itself. Love is the only
thing where the lc.ist possible ex
travagance is the height of economy.
What right has man to be the head
of the family? A man should be
cheerful and pleasant on coming
iuto a house. When you enslave
au body, you make him dishonest.
A hut with love, is a palace fit for a
king. A little while ago 1 stood at
the tomb of the dead Napoleon, and,
when I thought of his past life, I
thought I would rather have been a
French peasant and worn wooden
shoes, living iu a hut with a little
wife I loved, with children upon my
knee, and their arms about my neck,
and died unnoticed and unknown,
loved by those who knew me, than
to have been that king. It is not
necessary to be great or rich, or
powerful, to be happy.

The ISriht Side.
Look on the bright 6ide. It ia
the right side. The times may bo
hard, but it will make them no
easier to wear a gloomy and sad
countenance. It is the sunshine aud
the cloud that make a flower.
There is always before or around
us that which should cheer and fill
our hearts with warmth. The sky
is blue ten limes where it is black
once. You havo troubles, it may
be. So have others. None arc free
from them ; aud perhaps it is a well
that none should be. They give
siuew and tone to life fortitude
and courage to man. That would
be a duli sea, and the sailor would
never acquire skill, where there was
nothing to di(urb the surface of
the ocean. It is the duty of every
one to extract all the happiness he
can within and without him, and,
above all, he should look on the
bright side of thng. What though
things do look a little dark? The
lane will turn, and the uight will
end in broad day. Iu the long run,
the great ballanec rights itself.
What is ill becomes well what is
wrong, right. Men arc not made to
hang dowu their heads and lips, and
those who do only show that they
are departing Irom the paths of true
common sense and right. There is
more virtue in one sunbeam than
there is in a whole hemisphere of
clouds aud gloom. Therefore, wc
repeat, look on the bright side of
things. Cultivate all that is warm
aud genial not the cold and re
pulsive, the dark and morose.
Many pcoplo are puzzled to un
derstand what the terms "four pen
ny," "six penny," and "ten penny"
means as upplied to nails. Four
penny means four pounds to the.
thousand nails; six penny, six
pounds to the thousand nails,and so
on. It is an English term and
meant at first ten pound nails (the
thousand being understood); but
old Englishmen clipped it to "ten
pun" aud from that it degenerated
until penny was substituted for
pounds. So when yon a9k for four
penny nails uow-a-days, you want
those a thousand of which will
four pounds. When a thousand of
nails weigh less than one pound
they arc called tacks, brads, etc., aud
are reckoned by ounces.

When cold water is abundant and
