HOW SHE MARRIED FOR MONEY.
Addie Arlingtou looked at herself
iu the mirror, and then turned away
with a little smile of happy satisfac
tion, that rippled over into a joyous
laugh aa sho caught her cousin
'You are thinking that I am as
vain as a peacock, aren't you, Ellie?
Well, I do look well, don't I ? And
I'm awful glad of it, because, cousin
mine, it will bo all the easier for me
to come off victorious in tho cam
paign I have laid out for myself
during my threo months' visit to
She spoke with a charming frank
ueBs, that made MissNolliston smile
back in tho lovely, girlish face.
'And what may your plans be,
Addie? Of course it is n Bettlpd
question that you shall take New
York by atorm. You know, of
course, also, that your pretty face
will secure that happiness to you.
But further than that, what, little
She looked fondly, proudly, at
Addie, whoso dusky eyes were
glowing like stars.
'Oh, only my arrangement for the
chief end of woman marriage! I
toll you, Ellie, I am going to make
my hay whilo the sun shines in
other words, while I am in New
York, I am going to secure some
rich oh, some awfully rich fellow,
who can just smother me with dia
monds aud dreghes aud give me all
the money I want enough to buy
everything I cau think of.'
Miss Nelliston laughed at the
'You rapacious little cormorant 1
You certainly have erected a very
ambitious standard, but I cannot see
who or where the desirable party is.
I am quile sure you deserve just
what you want, dear; but the ques
tion is, can you get it?'
Addie shrugged her pretty shoul
ders. 'Ellie, I shall get it! I know just
my own worth. Now dou't put me
down as a vain, silly creature, be
cause I frankly admit I regard my
self good looking, and quite desira
ble for a wife generally. I am fairly
good natured am I not, Ellie?
and I ought to have a good husband,
oughtn't I ?'
She leaned her soft, fair cheek
caressingly on Miss Nelliston's face.
'Indeed you ought, my darling.
And if I could, I would conjure one
to order for you, Addie, you are
beautiful enough to win the highest
and best iu the land.'
And she was very beautiful and
all tho more so that she was uot in
the least vain of her charms.
Standing there beside the dressing
mirror, in her evening dress of deli
cate pink, with her fair, white arms
bared Just holow the dimpled elbow,
the dainty hands cased in creamy
kids, the joyous, happy face, whoso
features were so exquisite, whose
complexion was so richly warm and
satiny in its pale, brunette beauty,
whose eyes were so deeply dusk and
lustrotiP, and eager Addie Arling
ton was certainly sweet enough, and
winsome enough to warrant Miss
Nelliston's loving assertion.
'If only there was anybody rich
enough, iu or about New York, un
married, to satisfy you, chlldie?'
'I'll tell you a secret, Ellio. I'm
going to take my fort by storm, and
when you see me the betrothed bride
of an English milord, Ellie '
Miss Nelliston gave a gasp of pos
itive horror at the girl's audacity.
'Addie Arlington, you don't mean
yon actually have designs on the
illustrious guest that the Van Ren
sellaers are expecting the English
nobleman all New York is on the
qui vive about!'
The girl's silvery laugh accompan
ied a very defiant positive shake of
her silken skirts, as if that graceful
little gesture added incontrovertible
'Exactly, cousin Ellie. You needn't
look so horrified. I'm sure the
prospect of having a Lady Grosvenor
in the family ought to delight you.'
But Miss Nelliston was too taken
aback to appreciate the prospective
Addie, how wild you talk ! The
ideal Why, you never have Been
him, you don't know whether he is
young or old, a gentleman or a
not a gentleman. Suppose he is old,
and fat, and ugly, and short breathed
like papa's British friend, Sir Wil
liam Wiggleton ?'
'The charming estate everybody
knows Lord Grosvenor owns, and
his rout-roll of a $100,000 a year, and
bis wonderful mines in Wales, and
his treasures of costly elegance in his
own town house in Park Lane, and
his country houses in Subbcx and
Cornwall, will cure all these defects,
Ellie. Come, we'll be late at Jenny
Jernyngham's, and you know Jenny
always expects me first of any one.'
'And so does Jennie's brother 1
I am ready, Addie.'
The music was playing a lovely
fantastic, in low, softly-delicious
chords, and dozens of couples were
promenading the suites of rooms,
Addie Arlington and Fred Jernyng
ham among them, aud the youug
gentlemen evidently not delightfully
interested in the teuor of the young
lady's animated conversation.
'Why, he's the handsomest man I
ever saw in my life I Of course, I'll
except you, Fredl' and the pearly
teeth twinkled in a smile for a sec
ond. 'But I want to hear his name.
I want to know all about him. Fred,
is he rich?'
It is imposible for matter-of-fact
young Jernyugham to understand
whether or not Addie was in earnest.
'His name is Melton ; and I know
nothing whatever about him, except
that he is a member of au engineer
corps at present iu the city. I don't
see what thero is about him so re
lie glared at the unconscious tar
get of his and Addio's eyes, with a
deep scowl that delighted her.
'You're not to be supposed to see
any masculine attraction boyond
your own, Freddie. But if he's only
an engineer hark ! that's our waltz.'
And off they glided, a faint flush
on Addie's cheeks, as Mr. Meltoii'a
hand, some bluo eyes caught hers
and helil her glance a second, des
This was tho way it began ; and a
month later, wheu New York society
was stirred to its soul by the defer
red advent of Lord Cuthbert Gros
venor, Miss Nelliston wondered why
it was that Addie's enthusiasm had
so completely died out.
'You're a mystery to me, Addio,'
she said, as they drove home from
the crush at Mrs. Van Kensallaer's,
on the occasion of Lord Grosvenor's
And for the first time Addie's
reply was a little sharp.
'I don't see where the mystery is,
I'm sure. Whatever there is about
a little, fat, bald-heuded old man to
admire, I can't see.'
'But he's a lord, all the same,
'No, it's not all the same at all,
Ellie I How insufforably hot the
rooms were to-night! I have the
most wretched headache.'
Tho next afternoon a magnificent
coach and pair, with the armorial
bearings of the house of Silverlaud
Lord Grosvenor's illustrious fami
ly with coachman and footman, iu
his lordship's livery of silver and
maroon, drew up at Miss Nelliston's
door, and a fat, pully old gentleman
descended, to pay hifl compliments
to the prettiest girl of the night
before the only girl who had at all
interested him Addio Arlington.
After that well, Ellie hardly
knew Addie, so variable and capri
cious she grew; now in the wildest
spirits, again dejected and petulant ;
until one day there came, by one of
the liveried servants, a written pro
posal of marriage, on a satiny sheet
of paper, bearing a crest aud mono
gram in silver and maroon, and
signed in a little crabbed, spidery
hand 'Grosvenor.' A letter that
offered her, in a very gentlemanly
unenthusiaslic way, all the grand,
good things that it had been her sole
aim in life to possess and enjoy.
While by mail, not ten minutes
later, had come another letter that
made the girl's heart thrill, and all
her pulses stir, as she read the pas
siouate prayer for herself to bo given
to the man who loved her Phillip
Melton, with his handsome face, aud
his salary as an engineer.
For soveral hours Ellie wondered
what Addie was doing, so long alone
in her room ; and then by and by she
came softly down stairs, a sweet
flush on her face, a tender pride in
her eyes, a thrill of perfect content
in her voice.
'Eilie, dear, I want to tell you. I
have refused Lord Grosvenor's offer
of marriage and accepted Phillip.'
And without a question, Ellie put
her arms about the slight form and
'You have done right,' she said,
If you will permit me might I ask
why you decline my ofl)r?' Lord
Grosvenor said, an hour later, when,
her gentle refusal having reached
him by mr-Reiigr;r, he posl-hasted
to the house.
And Addie's lips Irembled with
actual happiuess as she answered
with a sweetness that was charming :
'Because, air; I I loved Mr. Mel
ton best. You wou't be angry ?'
'Mr. Melton 1 A fellow on a sal
'Pardon me, my lord a gentleman
rich in nobility, iu goodness, and in
love for me.'
'Oh, that's it! But about the
money 1 Miss Arlingtou, there is
uot a wish in the world that shall
remain a moment ungratified, that
money can procure, if you will
I shall want only what Philip can
give me, Bin'
Ilio kindly eyes twinkled good
naturedly. Then, Miss Arlington, am I to
consider your auswer absolute? You
positively decline to become Lady
Grosvonor, to live at Silverlaud
Park, to bo a leader of London
She smiled sweetly, prettily.
'I am sure I have decided. I thank
you for the great honor you have
paid me. I shall be proud of it all
my life, but I caunot, because I love
Phillip Melton more than all the
world aud what is in it.'
'Addie, my true little darling!
Addie, little love!'
And Phillip Melton stepped out
from behind the curtains of tho bay
window, aud took her iu his arniri,
his haudsomo face all smiling aud
proud, aa he turned to Lord Gros
'I told you so, sir! She loves me,
aud is true and sweet in her loyalty,
to the mau sho loves ! Addie, per
haps you will uot mind so very much
that, after all, you will be Lady
Grosvenor some day? For Lord
Grosvenor here is my father, and I
am Phillip Melton Silverlaud, next
iu succession. Addie, you will not
be angry with ua for our little ruso?
Wo had heard you were so desper
ately determined to marry monoy,
and the moment I saw you I knew
thero was a heart that would con
quer ambition a heart that I wanted
to conquer on my own merits.'
Addio listened, bewildered, and.
Lord Grosvenor laughed.
'Bless your bright eyes, child!
You almost tempted me to be treach
erous to Silverlaud there. But
you'll not refuse me for a father-in-law,
Aud in her almost royal home,
Addie is as happy as the summer
days are long ami shining.
Nluvry In the Moiifli.
It is said that slavery Iuih been
abolished ; that tho negroes of the
south are on a perfect equality, so
far as civil rights are concerned,
with tho whites; that the constitu
tion with its amendments is held in
respect by the people of the south.
Calnmr McCuue, editor of the Osce
ola Itecord, a gentleman whose ver
acity no one will question, has lived
in the south within the past two
years, and this is what he says :
Negroes are .still sold in the south.
The difference between the -ales of
to-day and those of former days ia
that the merchandise has been con
victed of Home crime, and has been
sentenced to servitude by the courts
for a stated period. The method of
sale is very similar in fact identical
with that of ante helium times. The
highest bidder takes the negro aud
his ownership of him is just as abso
lute for the lime, as it was iu former
times for life. If the white owner
finds heliHsinadea good investment,
or, if he holds a grudge against the
poor victim, he can easily trump up
charges which will make the servi
tude well nigh perpetual. In the
average southern court (he testimony
of a negro is scarcely regarded and
it is looked upon as the bight of
presumption for him to testify
against a white man. Not only is he
deprived of his liberty,but conviction
for the slightest offence will, in some
states, deprive him of Iiib elective
franchise. The writor has seen a
number of chain gangs in the south,
nut they were composed always of
negroes men, women aud children.
In no case did he ever see a white
man in these chain gangs. In the
cities of Georgia especially iu the
intorior and on railroads in pro
cess of construction, and other pub
lic works, these wretched, half
clothed and ill kept people may be
soen. The whites hold the key to
the situation, aud by applying these
methods they propose to keep it.
On a Canada Southern train the
other day a Detroiter bad a seat be
hind a couple who got on at a little
station near St. Thomas, and he
thought he had seen the man's face
before. IIo was looking at him
sharply aud trying to remember
where he had met him, when the
man turned and asked :
'Aren't you Thomas , of De
troit?' 'Yes; and aren't yon William ,
'I thonght eo when you came in.
And ain't yon running away with
old Judge Blank's daughter, of St.
I've got a better thing than that,'
whispered William, as he leaned
over the seat, 'I'm
with his wife.'
Curran was once pleading, when
an ass began to bray, and the Chief
Justice interrupted the orator in his
address to the jury, saying: 'One
at a time, Mr. Curran, if you please.'
Curran said nothing iu reply; but
when he had finished his speech the
Judge began to read hi3 instructions
to the jury. Very soon the ass be
gan once more to bra', and Curran
spoko up: 'Does uot your Lord

Recent dailies contained this tele
gram concerning a now enemy to
the farmers that has appeared in
the east :
"A pest that resembles the army
worm, and goes by that name, tho'
substantial differences between the
two are describablc, has made its
appearance iu the oat fierda of Illin
ois. Wheat was severely damaged
by these worms, and spring wheat

soil, and now comes the army worm
and devours the oats. The worm ia
chiefly found in the northern part of
the state. The rapidity with which
it works is shown in the statement
of one correspondent that a field of
forty acres of oats was destroyed in
forty-oight hours. The worm? ap
pear to be governed by considera
tions that are unfathomable, for they
will completely destroy one field of
oats and leave another field, sepa
rated only by a rail fence, untouch
ed. The fields left untouched are
not numerous. In the fields that
are ravaged the worms discriminate
carefully between tender and succu
lent stalks and those that are com
paratively old and dry. The latter
they avoid. Estimates of the loss
cannot be made with auy degree of
accuracy, as the wormq are still at
work aud nobody knows what they
may accomplish before thoy get
through. It is impossible to tell
exactly how much harm they have
done in tho fields that they hare
visited, because, as just asserted,
they do not destroy every stalk, and
not till the fields are harvested will
they know how much Is lost. In
Will co. Mty it ia believed the loss
cannot fall bolow a million bushela,
and if the worms move faster than
the oats ripen the loss will exceed
that. Although oats are the favor
ite food, the worms will not go
hungry wheu they find none of that
grain. In default of oats they at
tack young corn stalks."
So much are we the slaves of the
world that we sometimes hesitate to
do au action which is prompted by
the heart, fearful that it may bd
mistaken by others for folly;
