THE HBDDEX SORROW.
- BV ELSIE LEIGH WHITTLESEr.
It was a bitter cold day ; the streets
of New York were alive with a
dense mass of crowding humanity,
over-coated, in u tiled and veiled, as
became those who joyously braved
the penetrating wind and sharp at
mosphere, in the merry-making time
between the death of the old and the
birth of the New Year.
Notwithstanding the frosty weath
er, the Empire City was never in
gayer mood, and up and down, and
across the thronged thoroughfares,.
stylish turnouts dashed swiftly by
to the tinkling music of silver
tongued bells and low, happy laugh
ter, speeding away to the open roads
and 6now-clad country, lying white
and still beyond the hurry and tur
moil of the great city.
Though so cold without, it was
warm enough in the elegant room
where we were sitting my cousin
Althea, her half-sister, Mrs. Irene
Chester, and I. My cousin Althea
was not young past 30, in fact ; but
she was the most beautiful woman
I evor saw, and as she sat iu the
large crimson damask chair by the
window, dreamily looking out at the
hurrying passers-by, I thought I had
never seen any one so charmingly
and irresistibly lovely. Her lus
trous black eyes, clear olive com
plexion and glossy wealth of purple-
black hair, wore so perfectly perfect
that one did not know which to
admire tho most, and her voice and
smile were as sweet and winning as
her form was graceful and her face
Howard Tremaino loved her as
few men love their wives; and
Althea, ns everybody knew, idolized
her handsome husbaud, and yet
somewhere there was a bidden sor
row, the nature of which I could
not for my life divine. I had seen
the shadow more than once, but the
substance kept itself well out of
view, and, but for the sad, anxious,
restless look that often of late crept
Into Althea's great, soulful eyes, I'd
not have thought sorrow could exist
in her luxurious home, much less fix
itself permanently there.
We are going to the opera in the
evening. Mr. Chester was to attend
us in the absence of Howard, who
bad gone away two or three hours
before with three or four friends,
who had, very much to his wife's
regret, called for him to accompany
them on a. little half-hour or so
sleigh-ride out on the Bloomingdale
As the short winter afternoon
wore on, Althea grew every moment
more and more uneasy ; her faith in
that "little half-hour or so," never
having been very strong, died utter
ly, long before the sun's last cold,
golden rays faded in tho west, and
when Mrs. Chester rang for lights,
and carelessly remarked that it was
time to dress, she was noticeably ill
at ease, and would do nothing but
walk to and fro between the window
and the warm, rosy firelight, iu that
nervous, listening, expectant way,
which is so painfully suggestive of
secret dread and anxiety too deep
and wrotched for words.
Whatever Howard Trcmaine
touched turned to gold, and all that
money could buy his wife possessed.
Her wardrobe, jewels, house and
carriage, were among the most
superb in New York, yet her closet
evidently had its skeleton, and to
night, more than ever before, it
seemed determined to rattle its dry
bones in our very ears, and make
itself felt and seen in every nook and
corner of the millionaire's sumptu
ous home, in spite of all Althea
could do to keep the unpleasant
thing out of sight.
For the twentieth time, she walk
ed to tho window, and, with a half
suppressed sigh on her lips, stood
watching the sleigh3 fly past so long
that Mrs. Chester quite lost her
patience, and exclaimed, rather pet
'Nonsense, Althea! Why is it
that you always will be worrying
about Howard? He is not a baby,
and is no doubt quite as capable of
finding his way home alone as most
men are. Mr.Tremaine knows that
we are going to the opera this even
ing, and he will be snre and drop in
before the end of the first act, you
may depend. And now we must
dress, if we wish to hear the open
ing air in 'Faust,' which I certainly
do, however it may be with you.'
Mrs. Chester was one of those
positive characters who immediate
ly act upon what they say, and in
less than an hour we were on our
way to the opera.
The house when we entered was
literally packed with a most brilliant
and fashionable audience, but Althea
seemed to move like one in a dfeam,
and took not the slightest notice of
anything or anybody around her.
I could not make it out at all, and
hardly dared to look at her for very
sympathy. Her maguificent dress
of violet velvet and creamy old lace
became her perfectly, and never did
a Queen carry herself more royally,
or seem more unconscious of her
beauty and grandeur.
Diamonds a fortune's worth of
them flashed on arms, neck and
bosom, and gleamed like drops of
liquid light amid the richabuudance
of her dusky hair; but she was not
There was much too heavy a sor
row lying unrestful at her heart for
that too much of nameless dread
and anxiety to allow of enjoyment
of any sort.
At the end of the second act, a
gentleman made his way to our box,
and asked, in the usual conventional
manner, after the customary greet
ings were gone through with, how
we liked the music.
Mr. Chester, who had been com
fortably dozing in his chair the
whole time declared he was never
more charmed an innocent fabri
cation which none of us care to
'And where did you leave Mr.
Tremaine?' inquired Mrs. Chester,
in some surprise. 'He was with you
I think, Mr. Richland.'
'Yes ; and I left him with the oth
ers at Delmonico's. I don't care for
that sort of thing, you know,' low
ering his voice, and glaucing fur
tively at Mrs. Tremaine. 'It makes
one feel so confoundedly wrotched
Althea was a well-schooled woman
of the world, and full and unflinch
ingly she met his meaning glance.
She was very pale, and the hand
that held her bonquet trembled
slightly, but otherwise she was her
own calm, proud lovely self, and
neither Mr. Richland nor any one
else should see beneath the mask.
I can't tell just how the ovening
passed. I only know I was intense
ly glad when it was all over with,
and we were at home again.
Mr. aud Mrs. Chester went at
once to their apartments, but I lin
gered a moment in the parlor with
Althea, who seemed in no hurry to
go to her room, though it was lato
and the whole house is still as death.
But as she did not appear iuclined
to talk, I kissed her, said good night
and went up to my chamber, leaving
hor there alone, like another Ariadne,
sad and broken-hearted, in the midst
of princely splendor and untold
I had barely left the room beforo
the jingle of bells and the clatter of
flying hoofs in the now almost silent
street, arrested my footstepB.
A sleigh dashed past, and stopped
at the door, as if driven by a whirl
wind. The night was intensely cold, but
tho tired horses were smoking, and
their quivering flanks white with
frost and foam.
Not caring to see more, T dropped
the curtain and turned to look at
Althea. She stood like a statue iu
the middle of the room, one baud
pressed hard against her breast, and
the other holding close about her
the rich wbito opera cloak she still
wore, witn its sott, snowy lnnges
and swansdown trimmings shim
mering in the faint, uncertain fire
light like a silken cloud, for one dim
gas jet was burning in the deserted
parlor when we entered it, and eyeu
this Althea had turned down so low
that it was no more than a glimpse
Unsteady Bteps sounded on the
stairs, then came the sound of a
muffled fall, and something like a
half-uttered oath, mingled with the
low cry of uncontrollable anguish
that hurst involuntarily from
Althea's pale lips.
'I knew how it would be!' she
moaned. 'I knew bow those unfeel
ing creatures he calls his friends
would bring him home!'
And swiftly and noiselessly as a
spirit, unmindful of her elegant
toilet, and the strangely beautiful
picture she made, Althea hurried to
the assistance of her helplessly-intoxicated
It was not the first time she had
waited bis coming in a pale agony
cf fear and dread, not the first time
she had heard that dull, soul-sickening
fall, not the first time she had
glided down the great oaken stair
case to find her husband handsome
Howard Tremaine lying prone on
the floor, a sight to stir the pity of
the coldest heart, and cause the very
angels in heaven to weep.
I could have cried aloud in my
unutterable surprise and grief, and
on my knees have begged him for
God's sake to desist from further
breaking the heart of the wife who
loved him so dearly aye, so dearly !
I saw her through a rush of blind
ing tears help him somehow to re
gain his feet, and even in his pitiable
weakness he looked like a fallen
god; the noble head, tho clear-cut
features, the something indescriba
ble that stamped him a man . of
wealth and iutellectural force, was
still apparent, though so completely
had the man been gotten the better
of by the demon that lurks in the
Aud she Althea the look in her
eyes I'll never forget to my dying
day. She did not say a word; a
kind of dumb despair seemed to
settle upon her countouance a des
pair that paled her cheek to the hue
of ashes, and chilled the very life
blood in her veins.
I had seen enough, heaven knows,
of Althea's hidden sorrow, and stole
away to my room, wishing I could
believe the whole miserable scene
but a troubled dream, that would
vanish with the coming of the
Howard did not make his appear
ance at breakfast the next morning.
Althea explained, in a tone of
apology, that Mr. Tre'raaine came in
late, and 'was tired.'
Mrs. Chester did not guess that
anything was wrong, and really
thought Howard ill taken cold the
day previous, perhaps and advised
Althea to send for the physician.
Althea, however, did not follow
her sister's advice, but sat all day
beside the sofa where her husbaud
lay, snfloriug miserably from the
combined tortures of headache and
Toward evening he began to 'feel
bettor,' aud good resolutions com
menced to shape themselves in his
mind, as is often the case when one's
head and conscience have been for
some little time on the rack.
'Althea,' he said, drawing her
lovely face down to his and kissing
the sweet mouth, that trembled be
neath his lips iu a way that betoken
ed the near approach of tears
'Althea, I saw a look in your eyes
last night, which I can not quite
forget, and which I hope never to
see in them again ; and l promise
yon, hero and now, that I will never,
eo long as I livo, touch a drop of
wine agaiu. It's the devil's own
and never-failing well-sprung of sin
and misery, and my wife God bless
her! is not to have her happiness
clouded and her heart broken by the
folly and madness that lie in a bottle
of green seal. There I do you be
lieve me, darling? or do you think
me incapable of successfully resist
ing the sparkling temptation that
has proved the ruin, tho utter and
absolute ruin, of uunumbored mil
lions, and blighted and embittered
the lives of more women than I dare
to think of?'
'I believe you, Howard,' she sob
bed. 'I must bolieve you ; for to do
otherwise would kill me. If thero
was to be no end nothing to look
forward to but Wis -how could I
endure to live? Oh, if you will but
keep your promise, I shall he bo
happy so happy, Howard!'
Sbo fell, sobbing, into his arms,
and through the fast-falling tears
that filled her oyes tho glad smiles
were coming and going, like sun
shine through an April shower.
Three years have passed since that
day, but Howard has never broken
his vow, and I feel quite certain
now that ho never will.
A Small Hole Co Uet Througk.
The proprietor of a tan-yard, ad
jacent to a certain town in Virginia,
concluded to build a stand for tho
purpose of vending his leather, buy
ing raw hides and the like. Debat
ing what sort of sign it was best to
put up for the purpose of attracting
attention, at last a happy idea struck
him. Ho bored an auger hole thro'
tho door-post, and stuck a calf's tail
into it, with the busby end flaunting
out. After awhile be noticed a
grave-looking personage standing
near the door, with bis spectacles,
gazing intently on the sign. And
there he continued to stand, gazing
and gazing, until tho curiosity of tho
proprietor was greatly excited in
turn. He stepped out and addressed
the individual : 'good morning' said
he; 'morning' said the other, with
out moving his eyes from the sign.
'You want to buy leather,' said the
store-keeper. No.' 'Are you a
farmer?' 'No.' 'Are you a merch
ant?' 'No.' 'Are yeu a lawyer?'
'No?' 'Are you a doctor?' 'No.'
'Who are you, thon ? 'I'm a philos
opher. I've been standing here for
an hour, trying to see if I could as
certain how that calf got through
the auger-hole. I can't make it out
to save ray life.'
After long coaxing, with do little
use of the whip, we have seen a
balky horse started by putting a
lump of earth in its mouth. Tho
mind of the animal seems to be set
on not going, and the point to bo
gained is to divert it from the idea
entertained, and this the earth in the
mouth does effectually. So soon as
the horse gives his attention to tho
getting of 'he earth out of his mouth,
it forgets its balkiness, and can be

Columbus, O., Juno 8. The nom
ination of Garfield at Chicago was a
surprise to most republicans here,
but the news has caused an immense
crowd which is now in front of the
Western Union telegraph office near

nation seemed perfectly satisfactory
to all republicans.
AT SAX FRANCISCO.
San Francisco, June 8. In this
city the nomination of Garfield is
recoived with considerable surprise,
though some shrewd observers had
predicted it. There is no doubt that
a feeling of disappointment exists at
the defeat of Blaine who was a great
favorite, but aside from this the
uominatiou is probably as satisfac
tory as could have been made. It is
believed that it will do much to
harmonlzo differences among parti
zans and bring out tho full republi
can voto. rrommeut members of
the republican state central com
mittee express a decided gratifica
tion at the result. A graud ratifi
cation meeting will be held to
morrow evening. A salute of a
hundred guns was fired on tho
reception of the nomination, and an
other this evening.
The Bulletin this eveuiug edito
rially treats the fact principally iu
the light of gratifying repudiation
of the third term doctrine.
Tho Post, which has been outspo
ken for Grant, endorses tho nomi
nation squarely and strongly, and
admits that either Graut or Blaine
would havo aroused antagonism
which Garfield will quiet.
The Chronicle to-morrow will
fully indorse the nomination, aud
claim as great a majority for Garfleld
aud Arthur as was given Lincoln
over McClcllau, dwelling on the
certainty of the confederate briga
diers controlling the president in
case of democratic success.
The Call will say, "after the first
disappointment of the Blaine and
Grant men has passed away, the
discovery will be made that the con
vention has mado a strong nomina
tion. There are no points at which
Garfield can bo successfully assail
ed." It will also dwell upon the
importance of breaking up the third
The Alta, which has been pro
nounced for Grant, will publish an
article to-morrow highly commend
atory of Garfleld as a man of char
acter and ability who will do honor
to the presidency.

New York, Juue S. Large crowd
gathered around the bulletin boards

tense when tho 35th ballot was an
nounced showing 50 for Garfield.
The excitement increased rapidly

It is good to humor them in all
natural manifestations aud cravings
of their affections. A child hungry
hearted for love is one of the sad

Icflq pitiful is the condition of a lit
tle one who is perpetually repressed
or discouraged iu tho sweet impul
ses that prompt it to give expres
sion to its love. That way danger
lies. The boy or girl will not easi
ly go wrong whose arm ii twined
morning and night around mother'
neck or whoso head is welcomed to
its cuddling placo on father's shoul
der. It is on the side of their affec
tions that children are most easily
held aud guided and the firmost rein
is the invisible, golden cord of love.
It is good to humor children iu fol
lowing their natural bent iu all
right, helpful directions. Remem-
bor that education is only the lead
ing out powers and faculties that
are within. Encourage, therefore,
such inclinations toward books,
studies, mechanics, music, out of
door pursuits and healthful sports
as shall help most truly to develop
your child. Ah education comes
more and more to include the devel
opment of a natural aptitude, it will
be more and more successful. It ia
good to humor your children iu pre
serving their individuality, and in
fostering a true self respect. Teach
them early tho value of a dime and
a dollar. If you can give them but
five cents a week, tell them what it
costs somebedy in labor, and hold
them strictly to their allowance.

The Boston Post hits the nail on
the head when it says: Communi
cations should be brief, and there
are several reasons for this. In the
first place, newspaper space is val
uable. The modern newapapcr ia
never troubled with the old-time
complaint of needing "something to
fill up." The editor's scalpel Is con
stantly reeking from 4he slaughter
of live news matter and interesting
miscellany. Short communications
are much more likely to find reader
than long ones are, aud unless they
are to be read it U much better not
to publish them. More contribu
tions can be represented where the
articles are short than when they
arc long, and one man has as strong
a claim upon the columns as another,
provided he furnishes as interest
ing matter. A short article is usu
ally more pithy and pointed than a
long one. A subject should have
many ramifications to demand moro
than half a column in a newspaper,
while all that could be saved even
from that limit up to a certain point
is apt to be an improvement. That
prince of journalists, the late Satnl.
Bowles, once apologized for a long
editorial, and gave as bis excuse
lack of time to write a short one.
He expressed an important truth in
his usual epigrammatic way.
'I tell ycr, Mr. Johnson, fortune

to his neighbor, on hearing him
complaining of the hard times. 'No
fortune neber knocked at dis chile's

individual, mournfully. 'I know
dat.' 'Perhaps he corned round

'But I say he neber knocked.' 'An7
