I do not wish to spenk of profes sors in general, or to make of my hero the prototype of those honora ble men who devote themselves to :i noble cause the instruction of 'the youth. My object is merely to sketch off the features and charac teristics of an individual who, it is true, might as well have belonged to any other class of society. Late one afternoon, seated in my room on the Iioulevard de Luxem bourg, busily occupied with work for the morrow, I was startled by loud knocking on the door. Know ing that no friend would havo troub led himself to knock at all, I was certain that some bt ranger awaited an entrance. To my summons of "Come hi," which I repealed at least three times, there appeared on the floor a most singular specimen of humanity, who hesitated a moment, doubtless anxious to see what his reception would be. At last he came up and handed me a note from a friend. The lines read thus: 'I send you a poor unfortunate old man; help him if you can." In reality, the man before me did present a most melancholy picture. He was poor in appearance, even miserable looking, I might say, with clothes in rags and shoes quite worn out, while his shirt was torn at the sleeves in front besides being black as ink. There was an apology for a cravat, nothing more than a dark string, and a hat such a hat! stained red. white and black iu color, used up, smoked, and decid edly flattened. This was the object of pity my friend begged me to assist. And yet, with all. his soiled cloth ing and odd figure the old man came proudly up, holding erect his head, and looking at me from bright, in telligent eyes, a clear honest gaze. I was interested in spite of myself. Before I could ask him to be seat ed, he had coolly taken possession of a chair and addressed me in a most plea-ant tone of voice. '"Sir. I beg yon will excuse iny si'eniiiiir sans yene in thus seating myself; but I am quite exhausted, for remember, five flights of stairs is no small undertaking for one of my years. I bowed assent, and he continued : "I fee! sure you are good and charitable, like your friend. If yon only knew how kind he has been to me! I owe him so much gratitude that I can never be able to repay it. "When I am sick he always nurses .me J ii my hospital, and when I leave there he docs all he can for me out side, with his limited means. But before interesting you iu my behalf let me tell you who I am, where I come from, and what circumstances conspired to plunge me into such complete misery." Here he gave me his name, and said, furthermore: 'Having finished my studies at the lycea at the age of eighteen, without fortune, with prospect for the future I was then forced to leave Bordcau, my native city. Of course, like every other provincialist, I started for Paris, imagining gold was to be picked up in its streets, readily enough. That such was not the case, and that misery haunts all cities alike, I soon found out. After many months of struggling and pov erty, I finally became usher in a college near Paris. Of my life there, the abject slavery I had to contend with, I will not speak; the subject is too painful ; enough to know that 1 became disgusted, and left the only asylum where I felt sure of bread to eat or a bed to sleep on. Once more launched out iu the cold world, I tried hard to find something; but only succeeded in getting some small remuneration for my efforts by writing for the newspapers. And yet I wrote in the people's cause, and endeavored by eo doing to work out some good for suffering human ity. 1 wrote, too, in the cause of liberty, and for the downfall of op pression and tyranny. Oh, glorious liberty!' As he uttered these words, his whole face lit up and his eyes shone forth brilliantly sparkled, even; while hh form uas. drawn up to its full bight, and trembled with ex citement. The man positively ap peared sublime, and I felt sad to think such a fine nature was thrown away body and mind shattered by toil and hardship. lie then told me that he had been usher, professor and writer for the papers, in Paris, iu the provinces, abroad. As a proof of his state ments he laid on the table the cover of a dirty atlas, upon which were affixed the different certificates, in order and date, from the principals of the institutions and colleges where he had found employment. The methodical way iu which he took care to arrange and classify the certificates and recommendations excited my curiosity, and noticing it, he informed me that they were the means of his getting a livelihood. "You see, sir," he went on, "very few have the heart to refuse me some little help, when they perceive I am honest, although a beggar, and that I really did work when able to do so. A few sous will buy me a glass of absinthe, and an irresistible longing after that liquor induces me to spend my money at the cafe in stead of at the baker's." At an expression of pity on my part, he replied: '"Ah ! you others, rich, placed be yond care, can cry down the poor wretch driven to despair, and call absinthe and brandy the most subtle and poisonous of drinks ; and I suppose they are; but then to a poor mortal like myself, what have I to live for? And if the drink is poisoning me, its effects are by de grees, and give tho suicide many a happy moment, many a joyous hal lucination ere it kills. Under its influence I sec my dearest wishes confirmed, all my troubles cleared. Health, wealth, joy all mine!" "But," I suggested, "arc you not more miserable than ever when you awake from its influence, and find yourself once more exposed to real ity, and the misery of another blank day in your life?" His face became sad and overcast, while tears were in his eyes, and he confessed that the shattered visions were very painful in contrast, but added he: "Ah, bah ! I get money again, and then away to the cafe, where I re main until it is closed, and then to bed, in places known only to myself and a few others, where we dream away this existence until the last day comes, and we drift on to the sea of eternity." He now arose, and wishing me a "Good bye, and a Cfod bless you, sir, for taking such an interest iu one whom you may never sec again," left the room. I am not sure but there are some who will question whether I acted rightly in assisting the old professor to procure the means to indulge iu drink, and thus shorten his earthly course, and end by making him a self-destroyer. But then (as the old man said), who could have had the heart to refuse him some charity, and really wish to prolong a career coupled with such bitter want and destitution? lean forgive the phy sician, when he knows that death is inevitable, for consenting to treat his patients with prescriptions that will help to render them insensible to all future suffering or pain. A short time afterward, I happen ed to meet the friend of the profes sor. Of course I asked about the old man. "Poor lellow !"' was the answer, In return. "I closed his eyes at the hospital, this morning. Some ten days since he came to the hospital sick and wretched, saying all his references had been stolen and that he could no longer get a livelihood ; and having no home, no friend, he came to die by the side of the only one he cared for, and you see how truly his prophesy has been fulfilled. I shall bury him at my own cost." Placing a small sum of money to be devoted to a wreath of flowers, to cover his remains, "in memoriam,"I wished my friend good-bye, and went homo sad at heart, thinking that a creature of God's manly form, bright in intellect, and with the right stuff in him to have made life a success, had been led in youth into the current of adversity, to follow ever its dark stream onward to the end, where an inglorious death awaited him at last. Yet how many are doomed to such! Like the Creator of the Universe who is incapable of wrong Jay Gould is incapable of doing any thing that would not redound to the special benefit of Omaha. He builds the link between Hastings and Grand Island, giving St. Joe a direct connection with the main line of the Union Pacific, and wc are promptly assured by the brass-collar brigade that it will redound to the benefit of Omaha. He builds a stub from Beatrice to Marysvillc on the Kan sas Pacific, thus giving Kansas City a direct line to Southwestern Ne braska, and forthwith the brass collar editors clap their hands in joy and urge Omaha to jubilate over Paddock's boom. And now Jay Gould has projected an air-line rain bow road between Sioux City and Fremont, whereby Milwaukee and St. Paul will secure an inlet into the Platte Valley back of Omaha, and of course the brass-collar crew arc cheering for Gould. All these projects and all these shrewd investment are for Omaha. How could it be otherwise, when Jay Gould is at the bottom of them ? Anybody that can't see these railway enterprises iu that light, is more oblique in his optics than the much nominated Ben. Butler. O. Bee. A. IIusonntlN Explanation. It is a fact that has been noticed and commented upon time out of mind, that many husbands neglect those little attentions and marks of affection of which they were so lav ish during courtship. Of course, there must be a reason for a custom which, though reprehensible in tho abstract, has the sanction of all but universal practice, and it becomes the duty of the philosopher to in quire into and expound it. Perhaps it is best illustrated by an anccdoto which was told Causcur by a fiiend whose wife, by the way, manifested her deep displeasure in very decided terms while ho was relating it. It seems that ou Columbus avenue there dwell a wedded pair who wero made one last fall. Xo knight of old was more devoted to his "fair ladye" than was the husband during the' honeymoon and the moon that followed it. But, ere the third moon had waned, the young wife noted or thought she noted, no doubt 'it was fancy a change. As time passed ou it became still more apparent. Her husband was loving, of course, but somehow there was a lack of the old ardor, there was a falling off iu the old demons trativeness. This troubled her, aud woman-like, she was quick to con clude that his love for her had cool ed. One evening, after thinking the matter over all day, she broke out with "You don't lovo uicany more." "What makes you think so?'' he ask ed, iu a busines3-liko way, scarcely lifting his eyes from his book which he was reading. "Because," she sobbed, "you never pet me any more, and you arc not half so attentive as you used to be." And then she broke down into a regular cry. The husband saw that something must be done. Laying aside his book, aud regretfully relinquishing his cigar a man does hate to be dis turbed when once settled for the evening he went to his weeping wile and led her to the window. "My dear, he said," "do you see that horse-car coming up the avenue?" "I do," she sobbed. "And do you see that man running to catch it?" "Yes, dear, what of it?" "And do you see that he is straining every nerve; that he 13 shouting to the conductor at the top bf his voice, and doing his best to make the car stop ?'' "I do," said the wife, whose curiosi ty was aroused, "but what on earth has that to do " "One moment, my dear. Look again. Do you ob serve that he has caught the car, aud that he is no longer running, but is probably quietly seated inside, tak ing a rest? lie lias got through shouting and running, because he has caught tho car. Now, my dear" at this point he kissed away her tears "it is just so with me. J have caught the car." And with that the self-satisfied monster led his wife back to her seat on the sofa, and silently resumed his easy chair, cigar and book. A Girl's Fancy. A woman's taste is an unknown quantity and is one of those things which can never be calculated on with certainty. The fact is pretty well illustrated in a rather singular elopement which occurred a few days since down in Kansas, in which Miss Minnie Spears, a well-to-do farmer's daughter, eloped with a blind fiddler, whom her parents had refused to permit her to marry. The gay Lothario in this remarkable piece of eccentricity is an Italian vagabond, very handsome, and about twenty years of age, who gets about tho country playing tunes for any body who will listen to him, and give him a nickel. His name is Schutari, aud the romantic append age, aided by his good looks is per haps what won the girl's heart. Any way, she seems to have been perfect ly infatuated, and when her love was crossed by her unsympathetic parents, she managed to conduct her helpless love together, and together they fled west, where they propose to be united in marriage. Miss Spears 'communicated to a young friend a few days before tho elope ment, that she meant to dress up as a dancing girl after they were mar ried and learn to play the harp, and would then travel from city to city, and havo a delightful time. The romantic damsel is about seventeen years of age, and is said to be very pretty. She was educated for her age, and had plenty of admirers in her own sphere of life. Whatever possessed her to fall in lovo with an apparently unlovable object, is one of those things, which perhaps, woman alone can understand. A newly married lady made her first plum pudding tfio other day. 'I aimed to make a good pudding," she said to her husband who is a rifleman, when the dish was served. "You aimed well," he replied, ad he inhaled its delicious fragrance. "Yea," she said, "the range waa just right, and I made a plum scenter." Laughter and Tears. This language is one known to all the children of men. "Wc may trav el this wide world over; wc may go through the land and across the seas, and when wc have gone round our earth wc shall find many languages that fall as upon deaf ears, but this is one to, and in which, all may res pond. Though one is for weal and the other for woe, these two arc closely united, so that wc may call them one. Wc have seen the child in its most joyous mood when the wise mother shook her head, seeing the cloud that must gather ami spend itself iu tears. Iu cases of disobedi ence wc have seen smiling faces follow seasons of punishment and paiu. A friend once told me when his daughter had grown to woman hood she asked why, when a child, she felt so happy after punishment. It would seem that iu one extreme our hearts arc prepared for the other. The heart estranged sheds tears; the heart restored laughs with joy. This language is one that through life will abide with us, be that life of but one year or of three score years and ten. "When our babe is first brought to us, and in our joy wc think a part of heaven lias come down, wc know that from the Great Giver he has brought sunshine, and wc also know that with thcsuiishiuu he has brought clouds; when sun shine aud clouds shall dispense themselves there shall be joy and sorrow. He has come from a laud all un known to us. If the little lips could speak perhaps wc could understand, but this language is one of our own, and with this he comes. For his first lesson he has caught the smile from his mother's face, and he laughs he knows not why ; a frown is there and he cries, he knows not why, but well the mother knows not many days will come and go when this heart shall know its own bitterness, aud smiles aud tears will come from a full heart. April showers will come, and later will come the great thunder storms that threaten to destroy. To some of us come seasons when truly it seems a time for weeping, when the! sunshine seems so far off we can al most forget his face, but to the most of us it is a river now a ripple of I tears forming great waters, but who shall say that for us thcrlaughtcr was belter than the tears? and who shall say the banks were not made greener anil the waters purer because of these tears? If in this life these are united, it is only in this life. In our later years wc shall know more of tears than of laughter; but in these last days wc can assure ourselves that we arc nearing the joy that comelh In the morning. Coming to the border land of this life, eager to see first our Father's face, wo know wheif wc shall sec it there will be only joy, that henceforth and forever He shall wipe away all tears from our eyes ! Economy. What docs the word "economy" mean? Docs it mean the mere lay ing away of money, the mere pinch ing of our needs and taste that we may have a fund laid by for a possi ble future that, after all, we may never see? Docs it mean to be stingy, to refuse to give for this good object, or to assist that deserving, but less fortunate neighbor? None of these; true economy, is possible to the rich, as it is necessary to the poor. Economy signifies manage ment; the regulation off affairs both omestlc and public. It docs not mean that the tired wife 3hall devote each moment of her life to hard work; by doing so she is guilty of the gravest waste. It docs not mean that the father shall deny himself the newspaper, which will be rest and nourishment for his weary brain and of value to the whole family. It meaus that all members of the house hold shall bo provided with every comfort that will help them ton-. joy jifejn a. rational manner, and thus become useful to themselves and those around tnem. BnTnolh ingJ6Tro"uid be wasted ;rthe silly book purchased, the cheap and flimsy, but 6howy garment, bought for mere fashion's sake, the superfluous arti cle had because it waa cheap ; all are indications of a lack of true economy or thrift.
