The Story of Two Old People.

Youth seemed eo long-, nnd ago so distant
And noon came not, as now, ere morning
But later on, they chanced apnin to meet.
And ho was thirty and she twenty now:
"Why, be is old, ' exclaimed tbe maiden
And passed with careless heart and cloud- J

Ten years (a wenry round) roll on again.
Whoso days and weeks, so like each other,
That;ien they meet, 'lis ho. with sudden

But often on those tender April eyes.
When hearts beat time to hidden melodies,
"Why was I never loved?" ho asks and
"Why did I never lover' she asks and
And now. opprest with vain regret, they say,
Aa years wear on in ever-deepening gloom;
"Children, enjoy the sunshine, wtollo you
And pluck the flower in its morning bloom."

A HAPPY OCCASION.
"Do not cotue to laic" That was
the wording of the telegram which
Capt. Richard Irton held in his hand aa
he sat, in a temperature of 109 degrees
inlho shade, on tho varnnda of his In
Do not coma too late?"' he muttered
to hituialf. By Jove, as if it were prob
able that he would dawdla now! It was
just like Mrs. Lunnox to send snch a
chaffing wire as this. He might have
been along tiuio making up his mind,
but it was made up now, and ho meant
to go home and marry her. It was her
last letter that had sottled the matter
tho letter in which she hinted that Lord
Shorthorn was awfully 'mashed." No,
he wasn't going to stand by and see
Dorothy Lounox married to a cad like
Shorthorn, lie iiad bcon a whole year,
ho reminded himself, in this iufernal
station, with its furnace heat, its inane
gossip, and its eternal tennis and polo.
How lie loathed the very sight of his
Major's wife, with her white eye-lashes,
hor iualiciou3 giggle, and her flirting
And then he thought of Mrs. Lennox.
Ee remembered the lirst night he had
met hor in the ballroom of a great
bouse in London and how he had seen
her surrounded by a dozen other fel
lows, and how he" had "made tho run
ninir." and had cut out all those out
siders. Aud ho recollected the call he
had paid next day at her tiny house iu
Park street, when ho had been so
fweet and graceful, and had talked to
him as no woman had ever talked be
fore, lie didn't go in for brains or any
of that rot, but, by Jove! Dorothy
Lennox made him feel another fellow.
He thought of the cool amber-tinted
room where she always sat, with its
droopiug palms, its masses of azaleas,
its Kajon otchiugs, aud Us blue-and-white
Nankin. It was always cool and
cost in Mrs. Lonnox's house, and she
had a way of taking a fellow's hand
and looking him seriously in the eyes
which was quite irresistibla He re
membered how it had become almost a
habit to drop in of an af 'noon, to
lounge on hor soft divan, and listen to
her half-chafflncr talk and her low de
licious laugh. And when a woman is
deuced good-looking, as well as clever,
why, whatis a fellow to do? Perhaps
it was was wrong to make love in quite
such a serious way as he did. but, hang
itl she wasn't a kitten, and sho might
have known he wasn't the marrying
All that was a year ago. but he hadn't
forgotten her a bit worse luck. And
her letters how awfully nice they were!
how like hersolf! Not spoony, like
those he wrote to her; but frank, hu
morous, and thoroughly bon eamarade.
Hang it all! it was much easier to keep
heart-whole in London than in thu
sultry and monotonous hole. He had
managed to evade compromising him
self definitely even when he had gone
to bideJdrs. Lennox eood-by, although
he had been perilously near proposing
to her that last evoning; bnt he had got
away, and nothing had been said which
would have tied hira down to an en
gagement. Dick, in his roving life, had com
mitted every folly except that which he
considered the hugeet folly of all the
lolly of tying yourself to one woman for
life. He remembered how he had con
gratulated himself on all this when he
went on board the Jumna. Wat he,
the best-looking fellow and keenest
sportsman in the One Hundred and
Fiftieth Hussars, to knock under like
any spoony young sub, the moment he
met a pretty woman? But now things
were changed. He had uever bargain
ed, somehow, for her marrying again;
he had got to look upon her more or
less as his own. When she had writ
ten that letter with all the allusions to
Shorthorn iu it, his blood had fairly
boiled. He didn't regret a bit the letter
he bad written in reply, telling her he
was leaving India the very day he
could get leave and asking her to be his
wife. After all, why shouldn't he mar
ry P Ho was over SO and be had had,
as he rcmemberod with a smile, his
fling." The other fellows in his regi
ment used to chaff hmi and call him
"casual," nnd said that he never did
to-day what he could put off till to
morrow. But that was all nonsense.
He could make up his miud like other
men, even to matrimony. And here
was her answer to his letter: "Do not
come too late." Well, he had got his
leave and would be with her in three
It was a bright morning in June
when Capt. Irton arrived at Charino
Cross Station, thoroughly fagged an3
wearied with his long journey. Ho
had come as fast as P. & O. 6teamers
and mail-trains can bring a man from
Bombay to the Strand. But iu a
eouple of hours he hoped to have rid
himself of all signs of travel, to have
Sit inside a decent coat, and to be in
a abady drawing-room in Park street,
with Dorothv Lennox's soft arms round'
his neck. Hef elt very sleepy and some
what aggrieved, for he had" nursed the
unreasoning hope of seeing her at tho
station, although she could not possibly
know exactly when he would arrive.
Be had started by the very next mail
from Bombay, so that writing would
have been useless. He felt, indeed,
that he had answered her telegram in
a Tery practical fashion. How over
joyed she would be to have him back!
Be hoped it would not be too much for
her seeing him suddenly again like
this. So, throwing himself on the bed
ia his room at the Grand Hotel, he fell
When Dick awoke it was S o'clock in
the afternoon. Tabbing 'and unpack

Eoot and bay a tall hat After this
directed the cabman to the house in
Tbe shady Majfrir street looke4
brJfht and pleasant as his hansem rat
tled along, the houses smartened up for
the season with new blinds, and. window-boxes
full of daisies and spirea. A
light breeze blow in his face, and a
couple of fair-haired girl in pink cot
ton made a bright natch against the
gray-toned hottbca. By Jove! how aw
fully nice it all was, after India! A
matt might be very happy in London,
with a charming wife who would know
bow to give little dinners, aud the club,
and the theatres, and the paik.
Pulling up at the house, Dick's jaw
fell. There was an awning from the
door to the curbstone, with a crowd of
nursemaids and urchins gaping on
each side. The street was full of car
riages, too. What did it mean? Then
Dick remembered that Mrs. Lennox
gave a great many afternoon parties.
Well, it was deuced disappointing, he
said to himself, when you bad come all
tho way from India to see a woman, to
find she was" giving one of those in
fernal kettledrums the very day you
Inside the house there was the usual
elbowing, well-dressed crowd that you
see any afternoon in the season in May
fair. Boys in gray coats with pink
carnations in their button-holes jogged
old club-men in brown coats and white
gardenias. In the dining-room hook
nosed dowagers were foraging for ices.
On the stairs Dick met a woman he
knew, an enthusiastic girl of 43, who
was dressed in more juvenile garb than
when he had last seen her. Murmuring
Charmed to see you back happy oc
casion!" she tripped past him.
"Happy occasion, was it?" said Dick
to himself, wishing his gushing ac
quaintance and tho rest of the guests at
tbe bottom of the sea. It would have
been a happier occasion still if he could
have found his Dorothy alone in her
When Capt Irton reached the door
he could see Mrs. Lennox standing in
the midst of a crowd of people, who all
seemed to be talking at onceu By Jove!
how "fetching" sbe looked in her silver
gray gown, with a huge bouquet of
orchids, and that grav tulle thing she
had on her head! Was that a new
fashion, Dick wondered, for women to
wear bonnets at their own "at homes?"
And there was that ass. Shorthorn,
close beside her, with a particularly
fatuous expression on his face! it was
high time he had written, Dick thought;
it was high time he bad come. Why.
the fellow was far gone over hoad and
ears; Dick could see that by the way he
appropriated Mrs. Lennox with his eyes.
Then oue of the circle moved away,
and Dorothy turned and saw Capt.
Irton at the door. She looked as if sbe
had seen a ghost Coming forward ho
took her band, and then he saw that
something was wrong. Without a
word, she motioned him into an ad
joining room, which for the moment
"Good "God!" she whispered, "why
havo you come now? I wired that you
were not to come, that it was too late.
I wrote, too. but you cannot have
""Too late. Dorothy! what do
mean? Your telegram said: Do

next day." -
"Poor Dick," she said at last, "what
a dreadful mistake you have made!
Do not come. Too late,' was the
message I sent Did you not remember
that there are no full-stops in tele

Lord Shorthorn. Come in and lot lue

Aud this was Dick Irton's little mis
take. There are no full-stops in tele

Dick saw Lord and Lady Shorthorn
drive off amidst showers of rice and
slippers he knew that lie had had a

How They Foretold Ilnrrlranea and Bad
Weather The Il.lii;j of the San and
Hfoiin aa Indicators.
Lot)" before a national weather bu
reau telegraphed all over the country its
predictions as to whether to-morrow
would be stormy, showery, cloudy, or
fine, or a Wiggins began to announce
never to come earthquakes which were
to shake a continent, or cyclones and
hurricanes which were to blow away
cities, households were governed by a
set of rules in the battles of the ele
ments. These rules are to be found in
hand-books published as late as half a
century ago, and tome of them are very
curious. They number nearly two'
hundred, somo relating to the move
ments of clouds and winds, others to
the appearance of the sun and moon,
aud others to the actions of various ani
mals, including insects and birds, and
by them the ancient Wiggins foretold
when a storm was at hand. Some house
wives still adhere to the ancient sayings
as infallible, and they look to the sun
in the morning and" to the moon at
night for indications of the weather on
the morrow. The motion, rapid or
alow, of the clouds was regarded as one
of the methods for foretelling the ap
proach of rain or snow. When there
was a mist before the rise of the full
moon, if clouds were seen in the west
before the sun rose, or there was a mist
in the fields before sunrise, wet weather
was expected. When the mists vanish
ad rapidly and tho moon seemed to rise
faster than usual fine weather was sure
to gladden the hearts of merry-makers
on the succeeding day. If clouds sud
denly appeared in the south and there
was a nortii wind in April the farmers
predicted a storm. When the winds
changed and the clouds flew along in
"tail," thcu the rules prescribed rain.
Some other of tiie curious rules, many
of which are still referred to in the con
versation of overyday life, were as fol

Cigarettes and Pictures.
There is a suggestion of
certain windows iu this
ought to be dealt with bv the societies
who aim to suppress noxious literature.
This objcctionnblo display is to be seen
in a majority of all thu windows of the
cigar-shops." and especially those in
which cigarettes are tor sale. It is com
posed entirely of the figures of young
women, who are seen posed in every
conceivable shape which permits or af
fords a lascivious suggestion.
The purpose of this is plain. The
smokers of cigarettes are almost wholly
composed of boys nnd young men, who
are necessarily of a susceptible age, and
on whom it is intended by these pictures
to produce something iu the nature of a
conviction that the smoking of these
products is somehow a part of the
voluptuous exhibition. The feeble-minded
noodle who puffs the cigarette smoke
of burnt papers and tobacco through
his nostrils associates with each exhala
tion something of the sensuousness of
the window exhibitions. The dreamy
eyes, the suggestive lips, the naked,'
well-rounded limbs, tbe exposed bust,
and the languishing pose of the figures
all become unconsciously a part of his
cigarette habit and he is doubly demor
alized once by the enervating practice,
and again by the libidinous promptings
of the meretricious displays.
The whole thing, both the smoking
and the painted invitations in the win
dows, is a deplorable debasement It
Is a sapping of the slender stock of
virility of the youth who offer the incense
of the cigarette at the shrines of these
semi-dude voluptuaries. There is noth
ing about it either in the effeminate
smokers or the painted sirens, that is
manly, robust, or strengthening. It is
a mistake to tolerate these gaudy pre
sentations, to permit them to influence
the weak souls and prurient natures of
the class that they reach. The seduction
offered by the window exhibition has a
tendency, in connection with the vice of
cigarette-smoking, to produce a class,
lascivious in thought salacious in imag
ination, rickety in brain, and feeble,
marrowless, and exhausted in body. It
may be that it would be well to inter
pose no obstacle to this degradation of a
class, and it would be well, providing
the damage could be limited to those
now affected. They would in time dis
appear, and society would be relieved of
their presence. Unfortunately, their
vice is contagious; they communicate it
to others, and thus their existence is
Let the society having in charge the
matter of obscene literature and similar
damaging products take this condition
into consideration. There is certainly
iu it au evil, and a growing one. I:
may be possible that when a callow and
incontinent youth can no longer be
stimulated by amorous suggestions when
he buys his cigarette he may cease to
patronize it Chtcago Times.
Aunt Maria on Sunday Observance.
Aunt Maria has been our cook for
twenty years,and though she sometimes
nods in the chimney-corner, she is not
so old as to burn the roast beef or scorch
Aunt Maria generally wears a bright
colored handkerchief upon her head in
the shape of a cornucopia. When she

. THE SAKCASM OF NAMES.
Somo Examples of Anything liut Appro
What fuuny names people give to
their children, anyhow, writes Bob Bur
dette. Not thu high-sounding, or fanci
ful or romantic names: they do well
enough, although they do harmonize ill
with red hair aud ftvekies sometimes.
But real good, sensible names, even
I family names. 1 mean. Now, one of
the boys with whom I went to school
I was named Newton, Isaac Newton. His
ideas of heaven and mathematics were
t equally well founded. I shall never
forget his amazement when the teacher
assured him that two and two made
four. He stuck out ftfr seven for a long
time, and at length agreed to leave it
to the class, aud when we unanimously
decided in favor of four he said it was
tho beatin'est thing ever happened to
him. The day he learned that an apple,
loosed from the tree, would fall down
instead of up. he sat without speaking
a word all day, dumb under the over
powering bur'lcn of this revelation that
fell upon bim like the world-renowned
clap of thunder out of a clear sky. And
one day, overhearing the teacher de
clare that the sun was more than twice
as large as the earth he gathered up his
books and said he couldn't stand any
more of this nonsense. He never came
back to school. He got a place as clerk
in a coal-yard, whero his immovable
faith in the doctrine that two and two
make seven, and the ntlractiou of gravi
tation makes thiugs fall up, so that the
lighter anything weighs the heavier it
is, paved his way to a partnership and
great wealth. "He kept on knowing
less and less every day, until now he is
a most eminently respectable citizen.
Then there was young Solomon Wise
man. He stood at tbe foot of tho same
class five years; that was the lowest
class in school. He never got out of it
Said tbe teacher: "Can fish live on the
land, Wiseman?" And Solomon thought
a moment and said: "Yes'm." Then
she said no, and explained why they
couldn't and then asked, Could they
live in the air?" and lie said, cheerfully',
"Yes'm." But she -aid no. and explain
ed why, and then asked. "But they could
live in the water, couldn't they?" And
young Wiseman said, very confidently,
"Nome." She said they could, aud this
discouraged him. He never came so
near answering a question correctly
again. He staid in .school five years,
during which time he drove two teachers
to suicide. He is a rich man now and
a member of a local board of civil-service
reform. When he left school he
J;ota place down at the gas work?, and
lis unfailing capacity for making every
thing mean exactly what it didn't .ay
led to the invention of the gas-meter,
nnd so he sped on to fortune.
Why, do" you know, 1 could give a
dozen instances of these misnomers.
There was Jerry Blackhart uot Jere
miah, but Jeroboam. He was a half
breed Indian, son of old Col. Blackhart,
a miserable old thief of an Indiau
trader, who culled this boy Jeroboam to
spite the chaplain of the post That boy
just loved his worthless old father, and
he wouldn't hnve his name chaugod for
anything, though everybody shortened
it to Jerry. But he was the whitest boy
in that school. Ho never used a word
or an expression that be couldn't have
used in bunday-school. He was tho soul
of honor, ami was religious clear
through. Ho got up a noon prayer
meeting iu school and it led to a reviv
al, and he is a missionary to-day work
ing among his brethren in the Far West.
Aud thcro was Nick Doolittle; he was
the busiest boy in school. He read by
firelight until he was bald at 17, studied
himself into braiu-fever at 18; then he
became a civil engineer; laid out rail
roads faster than the Gould family could
gobble them up, and every time he gets
unusually busy he discharges two or
three clerks because, be says, they get
in his way and retard his work. Fact is,
you can't tell much about a boy by hjs
name, except in the old-time Sunday
school books, where the good boys arc
always named John and Charles and
the bad ones are called Bob and BilL
DOCTORS IN NEW YORK.
IVearaad Men Who Amu tha Patient
Walla Nature Perform tha Cure.
Talking a day or two since with a
prominent physician about the rapid
increase of doctors in town, and ex
pressing surprise how they all live, he
said that many of them merely vegetate.
He added that few laymen have any
idea what a struggle the profession of
medicine involves in a great city like
this. The popular notion that it is gen
erally lucrative is altogether erroneous.
There are at present, he says, about
5,000 physicians in New York, and
hardly one-fifth of them are in any way
rosperoas. At least 1,500, if not 2,000,
ead a precarious existence, subsisting
partially on credit and by all manner of
shifts and turns.
Many of those who regard themselves
as well established and have been long
in practice do not earn more than 92,
500 to 96,500. Very few, until they are
past their primehave an income of $5,-
000, and those who have an income of
$10,000 and upward, supposed to be
'uite common, are to bo counted by the
dozen. The thv.icians ihat get rich by
their practice s:ro those in attendance
on wealthy and fashionable families.
Dr. McLnne, who went abroad with
William 11. W.ndcrbih, and who was
summoned when he hail ills faiai attack
of apoplexy, is one of these. Dr. Jarcd
Litisly, now past 80, who was at Cor
nelius Vuuderhih's bedside, for weeks
previous to hi- death, is aiurlier. The

the family physician of John Jncot

His fee for his sjweiaity. witn ma-t plry
sicians from lu to $2tXJ. is uniformly
$1,000. Dr. Browu-Sequard, considered
the best aiilhoiiiv cxiaui on nervous
disorders, earned, when he practiced
here, from SSO.OUO so 8100.1)00. aud
earns as much iu 1'aris, where lie now
lives. He has a world-wide fame, and
is consulted by patients fiom every
quarter of civiiizdion. A native of
Mauritius, his mother was French; his
father, Edward Brown, was a Philadol

Dr. Loomis practice is worth 50,000.
aud Dr. Salisbury's 60,000. That of
Drs. Mercy and White, with a fashiona
ble patronage, i moie than $100,000
To be a fashionable physician is the
sole guarantee of wealth iu this city, un
less one happens to be particularly emi
nent in solne specialty, in which case
one is pretty certain to become fashiona
ble. Many a doctor, however, has bo
come fashionable without any remarka
ble ability; but having acquired that
place, reputation follows. Some physi
cians strive after social position only
to benefit their practice, aud when they
get it they make it highly remunerative.
A well-known doctor here some
months since endured agony in the
lumbar region. He could not sleep or
scarcely lie down for some day.). When
he grew easier, feeling the necessity of
permauent relief, ho asked tho advice of
a dozen leading physicians. Each one
diagnosed differently, and the opinion
of all diverged from his own. He then
acted on his own judgment and recover
ed. Ho says that if ho had been a lay
man he would have been compelled
from lack of means hu himself is my
informant to accept the diagnosis of
the first physician consulted and to fol
low his advico. But as ho could con
sult many physicians gratuitously he
did so. Nothing renders one more
skeptical of tho skill of doctors than to
consult a number of them. Ho who has
a specialty is pretty stiro to see that
specialty "in his patient, aud medical
opinion is colored by tho medical man's
temperament. Is there uot much truth
in Voltaire's definition of a physician,
"A learned man who amuso the patient
while nature performs the cure?" Let'

Stonewall Jacki m Manassas.
I never waselo-u to him on the field
of battle but once that was on the hill
not far from the Henry house, at the
first battle of Manassas. He was ex
tremely pale, but his eyes glared with
an unnatural brilliancy. It was on
that occasion that Col. Baylor of Aug
usta county rode hurriedly up to him
aud said: fioneral, in- men are arm
ed with the oid liint-lock musket, aud
not half of them will tire." He replied:
"If you will examine it you will find
that old musket has the best bayonet in
the world. Use the bayonet colonel."
In a short while the federal troops be
gan to give way, and it is possible that
this circumstance turned the tide of bat
tle. I have seen the statement some
where that Gen. Bee said to him. "Gen
eral, they are beating us back." and
Jackson's reply was: "Wo will give
' them the bayonet, sir." This may be
true, but it is probable that the remark
made to Col. Baylor was afterward
claimed to have "been made to Gen.
Bee. I will never forget the terrific
fighting that evening about 3 o'clock
the roar of artillery, the screaming,
bursting shells, the rattle of small
arms. The smoke blinded mc; I stoop
ed low to see how to lead my men. We
were almost exhausted, and burning
with thirst Beauregard galloped by;
this gave us some hope, and we cheer
ed him and pressed on. The federals
fought desperately. At last I saw Jack
son, and 1 felt safe, for his presence al
ways inspired his men with confidence.
Tiiat evening he was shot through the
bridle-hand. Gen. Imboden approach
od, called his attention to the fact and
suggested surgical aid. Jackson said:
"It is a mere scratch, sir." His hand
was bound up with a sash, he continu
ing on tho field until the engagement
ceased. He then repaired to the place
where the wounded had been collected.
lue surgeons were busy, oi course.
One of them, seeing Gen. Jackson, ap
proached and offered him assistance.
The general insisted that the surgeon
attend to ttioso who were more seriously
hurt than himself, saying he preferred
waiting until the private soldiers were
relieved. Southern Bivouac
Wanted to Change Ills "Booking."
"I was in New York one day last
week," said a railroad agent who
looks after tho immigration business for
a trunk line, "and while at Castle Gar
den saw a very ludicrous incident
Hanging on the wall there was a map
of tho United States containing on the
margin the advertisement of a firm of
landand immigration agents. Printed
on the map, over tho location of several
western cities, was a red flag, designed
to draw attention to the various points
at which the firm's branch offices were
located. Chicago was thus marked,
and so was Kansas City, Omaha, St
Paul and Denver. While I was stand
ing there an Englishman came up,
looked at the mnp, and immediately be
came greatly excited.
" ' 'Ere's a go.' he exclaimed, pulling
out his railroad ticket, 'lli'ni booked
for Homa'a. and on tho map theer Hi
see it is :i Hanarchist town. Hi'll never
go to a Hanarchist place. Hi'll go back
to Hingland first, so theer! Cawn't I
change me bonking, y'know?'
"Ami that w:id Englishman look on
at a great rate, and inched urouui ask
ing everybo ly lie saw if tho Hanurchists'
had complete possession of Omaha and
if it was safe for a traveler to set foot
In the town, and if he would have to
pass through Chicago to got to Omaha,
and if then. wasn't some way in which
he could have his 'booking' changed,
and so on. When at last he was calm
ed sufficiently to tell the officers the
cause of his excitement, it was learned
that he had taken the ted flag on tbe
map to mean that the cities so marked
were in the power of the Anarchists.

Tell Your WilV- About It.
I think it is safe for a mau to tell his
wife all he knows. And it is unsafe for
him to keep her in ignorance of his
financial affairs, or in iguorance of any
thing bearing directly upon her do
mestic affairs. The judgment of most
true wives and mothers is often remark
ably good; better, m many casesthan
that of thuir husbands. "Tell your
wife." siiouhi be the husband's motto.
No need to ask wive3 to tell their hus
