Tlioy were a happy and hopeful bridal
couple. The llfo irjon widen they had
rntcrcd was like a now ami unexplored
country , but Clarence meant to work
hard and felt little or no doubt in regard
to their future. Ho had bcun head book-
hooper for many years and had the
jiromlso ofsonietlung bettor yet the com
ing scabon.
They rented n house in the pleasant
part of the city , kept a servant , and
{ Stella were the handsome clothes that
had been provided at the time of her
marriage , Hut toward the end of the
iirslycar of their wedded life Ins firm
was said to bo under heavy liabilities and
the anniversary of their marriage found
the house bankrupt and Clarence out of
n. situation.
"I shall find .something by and by1 the
husband said bravely.
It was at this trying Umo that n little
speck of humanity was put into Stella's
arms , and Its feeble cry told that tlio re
sponsibility of motherhood was hers.
"I am the happiest man alive , " Clar
ence exclaimed , caressing wife aud baby
boy. "Lot pride go to the dogs , Stella1
ho added , remembering that now his re
sponsibility was greater than before ,
"i'hoy arc in want of workmen at the
How city hall. I'll take my hammer it
will give us bread. "
He went out in the early morning and
came homo late at night , his handsome
lace glowing with lovo. Hut tlio very
thought that her husband was brouglit
clown to the level of a commou laborer
hurt her. The little privations she en
dured won icd her , and in a little while
Ihu swcct-tcinporcd woman became
moody and down-hearted.
"J low can you expect mo to live among
Buch surroundings' " was her appeal
when lie begged her to cheer up. "It is
cruel of you. 1 want to go homo to my
own friends. "
The warm glow came to his face and
liedicwhor tcndoily toward him with
out a word , but there was a look piteous
to see in his handsome eyes. Then came
ti day a little later when it did seem that
inatter.s had come to a crisis. The city
iinll was finished and Clarence mut look
for something new. They had moved
nbout a great deal , hoping to find a place
in which the fretlul girl-witc would bo
"These people arc all alike , you know ,
nnd 1 may as well be in ono place as an
other , " was her reply when he suggested
that they move.
" 1 have heard of something now this
morning , Stella , and 1 am going to New
York on the next train. "
" You are always hearing of something
now , " was the quick reply ; "but what
does it amount to ? "
"I am hoping for something bettor ,
nnd think 1 have found it now. Are you
going to kiss mo good-by , Stella ? " ho
uski'd. "J may bo gone si day or two. "
' No ! " she replied coldly ; "you'll be
back soon qnough. "
"Hut I might never return , you know. "
"Seoityoii are not back again in a
day or two with the same old story , "
Clarence turned quickly and loft her.
Khe heard him cross tlio room , and know
lie bent over Freddy's crip and kissed
the little sleeper again and again.
" lln'll come back beforo'ho's really
gone , " whispered she , gomgtoward the
door ; but a turn in the street hid him
Jroin sight. Ho had gone without bid
ding her good-by.
"Well , we've been married long
enough to bo done with such nonsense , '
elio said by way ot consolation , yet there
was a terrible pain in her heart.
She sat still till Freddy awoke , thru
with a cry of anguish she ran across the
hall to the nearest neighbor.
"Please conto , Mrs. Wilson ; my baby
Is dying. "
Mrs. Wilson camo. for , though rough
in manner , she was kind in heart.
"He Is in a fit. " she said the moment
IP fiho saw the child. "Hold him .so till I
d run homo and get some medicine. Such
women ain't lit to bo mollier * . "
The hour for Clarence's arrival had
passed , but only remorao came. At last
thu strain became too great , and the
wife's chastened and softened nature
succumbed.ami good Mrs , Wilson hud two
liatlents , When Clarence came ho found
Ids wife rehearsing in penitent tones the
welcome .sho had prepared for him.
When at last Stella awoke from the
liorriblo dreams her husband was bend
ing over her.
' Clarence , " she said , very softly at
first ; "Clarence , " she repeated , putting
lior arms about his neck , "if you'll for-
glvo mo I'll kiss you. O , so many times ! "
Foolish fellow ! Ho cried like n baby ,
"Listen , Stella. " no said , as soon as ho
could command his voice ; "Listen : 1 did
got thn situation , ami you can have
everything you want , " touching his lius
to cheek and forehead , "and you are
poing to have such a pretty house In
jtJrooklyn. "
"All 1 want is your love , " clasping him
close , "and that l-'reddy gets well , i am
ready to bo a poor man's wife , "
Women Can AiVoril to bo Single.
Hoston Kecord : The common talk
i.s among young men that they cannot
nflord marriage , because wives are such
un expensive luxury , and altogether such
an impediment that no ono can utl'ord to
liavo ono unless ho is very rich or is will
ing to remain very poor. This kind of
twaddle is BO much in vogue that it will
probably seem heresy to take any other
view of the case , but bearing in mind
the innumerable stories of beating and
mutilation , and even murder , inlYictod
upon women by drunken and ugly hus
bands , it scorns to be about time to stait
n crusade to bring about n resolve on thu
part of women not to get married. They
run about twenty timea as much risk in
biicli an operation as the man does , and
if the latter cannot "aft'ord" to take unto
himself a wife , the majority of women
can well afl'ord , on their part , to remain
binglo. Within twenty ywarn wo predict
thut clubs for women , and an increased
independence in earning a llvolihood.nnd
a pencral better statin for tinmarnoa
women , will result in a serious dimum-
lion of llio marriage rato. And , when
women arc not to bo got for llio asking ,
mr-n will be moro careful of them. A
little "corner" In tno marriage market
would not bo a bad thing.
A Joke WhlciiaufnortOiU a Hcollty.
Henderson ( Mo. ) Democrat : Early last
Friday morning on a Mississippi steamer
there'were added to our-company of
travelers a pair who looked very Ilko run
aways ; the Gentleman , a tall , raw-boned
specimen of the "half-horse , hnlf-aliga-
tor" class , and the lady a talr match for
him. Among the passengers from Napoleon
leon h a solemn-looking gentleman who
hns all along born taken for a preacher.
About ! ) o'clock last night I was convers
ing with the "reverend" individual when
n young man stepped up , and addressing
him remarked : "Wo'ro going to have a
wedding and would like lo have you ofll-
clato. " "All right , sir , " he replied
laughingly , and wo stepped into the
ladies' cabin , whore snro enough the
couple stood waiting. There had boon
several "kissing games" and several
mock marriages cone through with dur
ing the evening , and I supposed that this
was merely a continuation of the sport ,
and so thought the preacher who 1 could
see Imd a good deal of humor in himand
was inclined to promote general good
feeling nnd merriment. The couple
stood up before him a good deal more
solemn than was necessary in mock
murringo , I thought and the "preacher- "
asked the necessary questions , and then
proceeding in the usual way announced
them "husband nnd wife. "
There was a good deal of fun after
wards , ami when it was over 1 loft the
cabin and so did llio "preacher , " who re
marked to mo that ho liked to see the
young folks enjoying themselves nnd
took a good deal of pleasure in con
tributing to their fun , but ho did not see
why they selected him to act as the
preacher. Just then some ono called mo
aside and tlio old gentleman stopped into
hi ? state-room , which was next to mino.
When 1 returned the door stood open and
thn "preacher" stood just Inside , with his
coat and vest oil * and ono boot in his
hand , talking with the gentleman who
had played the "attendant , " and who , as
I came up. remarked :
"Woll , if that's the case , It's a good
joke , for they are dead in earnest nnd
have gene to the same state-room. "
The old gentleman raised both hands
ns ho exclaimed : "Good heavens ! you
don't tell mo so ! " and rushing , just as ho
was , boot in hand , to the state-room indi
cated , commenced an assault ou tlio door
as if ho would break it down , exclaiming
at each lick :
"For heaven's sake remember 1 ain't a
preacher ! "
The whole cabin was aroused , every
state-room Hying open with a slam , when
the door opened and the "Arkansas
traveler , " poking out his head , coolly re
marked :
"Old boss , you're too late. Guess we'll
stay hitched1 ! '
Views or a Jlnslmml Trainer.
Chicago Lodger : We've been talking
with a woman who has trained several
husbands , and is now a candidate for an
other trial as a gooil wife. She makes
sonio observations , gained from her
varied experience , that are valuableand ,
as this is the bridal season , wo think
She says it is easy enough to win a
husband ; it is morcdillicult to keep him.
That any attractive little dumpling with
bright eyes and a coaxing voice may
gather in a noble husband.
She insists that noble husbands arc
thicker than red noses on a toboggan
slide , but it takes a master hand to draw
out that nobility and keep it at homo.
It requires soothing , she says , but iitlin
wife understands her business she can
direct things so that her husband will
think it delicious when she asks him to
bring up a scuttle of or got up in the
middle of the night to kill a burglar.
She says it is useless to try to describe the
magic power a devoted wife may exercise -
ciso over her husband. Her logic con
tends that there is somchingin the great ,
rough , earnest nature of a man that can
be won quicker and easier witli gentle
ness and tender steak than by a billions
course of broom-handle reasoning
with bread and milk diet.
A husband with such a wife will not
think that because ho gets up to warm
the baby's milk near the lire , or to jook
for burglars , and is otherwise obedient ,
it is because ho has no backbone. It is
simply because he is the husband of the
woman of whom ho ought to be and is

Panama Star and Heiaid : Marriageable
girls in Bolivia will probably serenade
thu members of the present assembly.
In most countries these gentlemen would
become decidedly unpopular among the
lair sex , and would find few partners
when inclined to dance. Tlioy would
also have the majority of the omcors ot
any army against them. They have
passed a law which should result in a
revolution of some sort or other , which
reads as follows : "No ollicer , fioin the
rank of sub-lieutenant to captain , will bo
allowed to marry , unless he can prove
that tlio lady with whom ho wishes to
marry possesses a dowry of at least
$1,000 , , " This seems a now order of pro-
ccduro. Holivian legislators express a
poor opinion of their oliicers in thus
coolly throwing the onus of their support
on the weaker sex. "Fortune hunters"
uru , despised in most countries , hut hero
wo Iind that in a republic all the sub
alterns are compelled to become fortune
hunters or remain single. Legislators in
Bolivia want the women to support the
warriors. Novel legislation , which
nut be productive ot good results.

There are 110 Ic s than 30,000 bachelors
in Montana , kn says nn enthusiastic resi

a \ \ ifo. These young fellows have no
time to ffo courting thenioelves , and
much of that sort of thing is done by

amassing fortunes , either at sheep-hord

There is the greatest possible need in

n Doctor.
M. Quad in Detroit Free Press : There
are a good many features about that
throat disease called quinsy. You can
novcr mistake it for the small-pox , nnd
you never havc-a suspicion that you may
have fallen from the roof of a third-story
building and broken forty or more bones
in your-body. You go to bed feeling in
excellent spirits and willing to pay 120
cents on the dollar. Soon after mid
night as soon after as the ailment can
make it convenient -yon wake up with a
horrible back ache and a bad chill. Yon
needn't flatter yourself that you are com
ing down with diphtheria , typhoid fever
or some other disease which will cause
your friends to anxiously inquire if you
have made your will and own a lot in
Elmwood. You are simply booked for a
fourteen days' wrestle with a common ,
onu-horso atFair , and the sooner you set
tle down to it the better for all con
You may gargle all the gargles over in
vented , but tlio throat grows worse. For
two or three dajs the doctor can place
the handle of a spoon on your tongue and
gel a sight of what is behind'ml.\ousud-
Jcnly discover in your mad career that
you have "shut your head. " The jaws
have taken a great liking to eacli other
and the doctor has to quit. Then you 11
turn to llaxsi'od poultice. It doesn't do
anybody good as anybody can saj' , but
you'll try it. Furthermore , you'll get a
hot compound of hop- > and vinegar and
try steaming. That never helped any
body , but it's fashionable to try it. All
the irlands nnd eouls and tendons from
the car down to tlio shoulder begin to
tighten up , the crevice between your
teeth closes at last , and there you aro.
If some butcher cart hasn't run
overyou and knocked some of your teeth
out it won't bo any use to try soups and
gruels. If you've got two or three places
where the gruel can sneak in you'll pres
ently wish you hadn't. Every time YOU
swallow you are lifted sixteen inches oil'
the chair , and it's a health lift which you
get tired of after three or four attempts.
The other day when my eyes were
swollen nearly shut , my jaw "sot , " every
gland and cord as sore as a boil and my
windpipe nearly closed , the doctor looked
mo over and made a little speech. I shall
remember his every word for the next
hundred years. He said :
"Well , something has got to be done.
Your throat lias got to bo lanced. I've
been expecting for a day or two that it
would come to this. "
And ho lay back in his chairand licked
his chops yes , sir , smacked his lips like
a boy eating a ricii plumes !
" \os , I'll bo nn after dinner , " he con
tinued , sighing heavily to think he
wasn't equipped then. "You'd better lie
down and prepare yourself. "
1 tumbled into bed , wondering if I'rov-
denco would take him oil' during the
forenoon , and slept to dream that I was
on a dissecting table and twelve medical
students were carving away at my body.
Providence spared thu doctor. Ho dulii't
even have a narrow escape. Ho was on
hand soon alter dinner , a smile of satis
faction on his face , and ho was followed
by a mock-looking young man whom he
introduced as a medical student.
"Now. " said the doctor , "don't got ex--
cited. Wo shall first chloroform you ! "
I tried to groan , but it was only a
wliec/.e something like a summer's gale
blowing into an old oyster can.
"And then wo shall wedge your jaws
apart. Here are thn pine wedges to do
it. It will , of course , bo a couple of
weeks before the cords and glands got
over the ollect , but there's no way of get
ting around it. "
1 tried to groan .somo more , nnd the
doctor laughoj. Ho said it reminded
him of the blgh of a tired lioiso as ho lay
down to rust.
"Didn't have time to sharpen this lance
at home , " ho wont on , as ho began to
hone it on a strop. "If you wore a wo
man you would bo .squeamish , but as it is
you won't caro. I expect to lance it in
about three places. It ought to relieve
you at oueo , but it will bo MHHU daybo -
tore tlu ) cut heals up. Uoad about Lo
gan's death , I presume ? Sav , James ,
get him that rocker. Did you bring tlio
chloroform up ? Pour it on this handker
chief and hold it to his no = o until you see
that ho is gone. Whore's the wedges and
hammer ? Now como with your hand "
Something down my throat gave a
throb and a twist and a , open llow
my jaws , and out came the quinsy with n
"You you wretches ! " I gasped , find
ing my voice for the first time in live days.
"Now , James , just see there ! " ov-
claimed the doctor in tones of mingled
disgust and despair. "Just see what no's
gone and done ) Hero was the llncst case
Pvo had in six monthsand IIU'H gone and
busted it ! i felt in my IJOIHM that I
ought ( o have collared him this forenoon ,
and here's the proof. James , we will
KO. "
"Doctor , shall I nso any gargle ? " I
called after him.
"Humph ! "
"And will you come in to-morrow ? "
Hut lie never turned or spoke. He
walked down stairs as still'as a poker ,
climbed into his cutter like a martyr , and
when once ho had the lines he woke thu
old horse up with the whip until ho made
a mile in two and a half. He hasn't boon
near me since. I expect hu's greatly put
out , and that ho hopes I'll have a relapse ,
but did I do anything to him ? Am 1 to
blame that ho left hU wedges and ham
mer behind.

New York Mail and Express : "It is
said that actresses have superstitions and
vagaries in a more marked degree than
any other women , " said an old littera
teur to a Mail and Express writer. "Hut
that is a fallacy which should bo cx-
pluilutl ; it docs them a great injustice.
Literary women have more oddittos than
any class. New York is the homo ot a
majority of women who desire to live by
their pen , unit in no other city can they
be studied to better advantage. Many of
them bellovo in iheosophy , transmigra
tion of the soul into animals , pantheism ,
Moh'immcdanism , nthcism , evolution ,
ami many other isms that place them out
of the pale of Christianity. Hut they arc
not orthodox even in what they profess to
believe , and have many queer ideas and
notions in connection with their religious
faith. Now I know a young woman wheat
at times is a charming' writer who imag
ines that her soul several hundred years
ago inhabited the body of a great gen
eral. Her theory is that the soul never
goes to another world and becomes a
spirit , but merely leaves the casket or
body of one person at death to iind a
homo in another just born. By this means
the immortality of the soul is explained.
Her idea i.s that at times , bv some frealc ,
the soul or life principle in a dog gets
into the body of a man mid produces a
monitor. No man , she argues , can over
become immortal until his soul has been
refined and punliod by inhabiting for
several centuries tlio body of a woman.
The inconsistency ot such a belief is ap
parent , but no amount of reasoning can
convince her that nature works on a
more original soul plan than the one she
believes in. This woman is practical out
side of this crotchet.
"People can bo great and have peculiar
beliefs. General Stonewall Jackson
thought that eating black pepper gave
him rheumatism in his loft leg. Another
literary woman , who pt'rlmps ' is destined
to make a stir within a few years , is an
out-and-out atheist. Yet she goes to
church and believes that number thirteen
is a bad number ; that Lto turn back when
once started on a journey is bad juck ; and
when the left car burns a friend is talking
about her. She can begin with Aristotle
and I'lato , and by ingenious reasoning
show that these worthy ancient philos
ophers wore simply beautiful talkers and
did not believe what they preached. She
thinks Empcdoclcs the wisest man of the
ancients because ho jumped into the cra
ter of Vesuvius to make his followers
think he had ascended to hea\en. Mine.
Hlavatsky converted several to her be
lief in theosophy , and they still relate
wonderful things of that disciple of
( iautama ,
"One woman who can turn out three
or four bright articles per day firmly be
lieves that she lw already boon in the
Nirvana htato tor over a thousand years
and has just come upon earth for a brief
period before going buck again. She as
serts that Edwin Arnold , the author of
' Asia ' is and hold

spiritual communication with ( iantama
in older to get inspiration to write the
'Great Renunciation. ' This woman has
children and they attend Sunday school
regularly. The father , however , is or

Women's Worries.
Chicago Tribune. If you are of a norv-
ous. excitable teiiipormont ponder upon
these lines , fr.-sh Irani the ready pen of
Lady John Manners "Certain worries
are supposed to belong specially to
women. The management of servants
\i \ sometimes considered very diflicult It
used to bu said , 'A good mistress imlkes a
rv coed servant , ' ami undoubtedly kind-
nr. s and consideration always draw people
ple together , oven when in different po
sitions. Though wo should save our
selves much worry by once for all rccoc-
nizinp that no one is perfect , yet I think
that by studying our servants1 little pecu
liarities wo may hope to avoid the fre
quent Changes which are so trying. For
instance , if wo have any reason to think
that n servant's memory Is defective , it Is
a very good ruin to give ovcry order In
writing. Indeed , irmnv pcoplo muko a
point of wilting orders for their carriages
and horses ; ana I remember a gentleman
who thoroughly understood the art of
dining ) who always had a slate beside him
at dinner on wliich ho wrote any remarks -
marks ho wishes to make for the chef. I
knew a cook-housekeeper in n family
which was unavoidably rather harum-
scarum , sudden orders being sometimes
given for many additional places at the
table. The orders were given by word
of month , but that remarkable woman
never made a mlstakp during the many
years I know her. Wlicn complimented
one day on her peed memory she pointed
to a slate on which she always wrote
every detail nl once. Perhaps some of
us women hayo too great a tendency to
adore our friends and worry them , ns
well as ourselves , oy being too demon
strative and expecting too much in 10-
turn for our attachment. Always let your
presence bo desired , was the advice given
by a man of the world to a lady anxious
to keep her friends. Always treat your
friend as if he might bccomo your enemy ,
and your enemy as if ho might some day
bo your friend , is n maxim that would
save much heartburning. Among minor
worries dress certainly Is one to some
women. Hut if wo remember that every
period of llfo has its own charm I think
this anxiety would bo lessened. To deli
cate persons the little precautions essen
tial to preserve health arc of ten very wor
rying ; but if they recollect how precious
their health is to lo\ing friends they
would probably rccognl/.o that in taking
care of themselves they are sparing
much anxiety to others. The warm wrap
may bo taken by the delicate person in
order to spare friends anxiety ; while per
haps the busy man of letters will lake
more exorcise for health's sake if ho
knows that these who love him will bo
grateful to him for so doing. "

Toronto Globe : Experience is showing
that the woman's vote is hcnscforth to bo
reckoned as a powcriul factor in the
election of municipal councils and school
trustees. Tor good or for evil this vole is
a great fact. It is hero , and it is hero to
stay. More than that , wo think that very
finv will hesitate in saying that in so far
as it has been tried it hasTbcon lor good.
Of course a good many woman will give
their votes unreasoningly and without
intelligence. Hut is this not also the
case with a great number of men ?
There Ss no fear of the possession of
the franchise either unsexing woman or
leading them to neglect their families ,
the more copccially as it so happens , as
the law now stands , that many of those
who have votes have no families , and in
many cases may not oven bo household-
era.Of course it is often attempted to
frighted the timid by telling of all the
logical and terrible "consequences likely
to llovv from such a concession The
question is not one of consequences but
of right , and if it is right and fair that
women who pay taxes should have a
voice in their disposal , as wo certainly
think it is , then let them receive not the
concession but that right , lot the consequences
quences behat they may.
llio Woman of Corfu.
Imagine , for example , this lady clad in
a voluminous gown of blue satin worked
with ilowers , with a white lace covering
over her shoulders ; an enormous head
dress of white muslin girt by a vast
wreath of natural pink roses and orange
blossoms , with ponderous gold earrings
reaching to her shoulders ; necklace and
bracelets of gold , ami a thorough breast
plate of antique goldsmith's work. She
is a marvelous spectacle , and sits still
with her brown eyes in a IKod stare ,
moving only when absolutely necessary ,
and then with the utmost care lor her
decorations. Other ladies have towering
coilVures ot white and crimson ; diessos
of blue , scarlet or green , and silver
buckles in their shoes ; and they arc all
dotted with bits of gold. Another pic
turesque detail is the old Greek feminine
headdress of a crimson skull-cap with a
! old coronal , from which a thick gold
tassal hangs at one side. Civilization has
ousted this pretty and becoming head-
; lress from Athens and the Greek cities.
Corfu merits the moro praise , theicfore ,

//mis : The woman often sliow the wear
and tear of their isolated positions , with
out compensating social interests , moro
than do the men , who are .surrounded by
iiien interested in the same pursuits. Love
of Inxuroiis clothing amounts to a pas
sion in the women ot all classes. About
their homes they go dressed as elegantly
as in the fashionable streets ot ban
Francisco. This is the result of the wish
of husbands , sons and fathers , for the
MSihle display ot tlieir wealth speedily
shown. Too hurried to build the good
homes which they need , all ru-hirig along
the heated raco-cour.s-e that leads to sudden -
den wealth , they deck their women as a
means ol establishing their claims to so
cial importance , and to compensate them
for the real hardships of llieir lonely
lives during much of the time.
The icligioiis , educational and moral

ing the reason why there are no great
female composer * . The following IdtiU
may throw some light on the matter :
There can bo no doubt that , in other
arts besides music , women hu\o achieved
but litthi that can lay claim to immortal
fame. Perhaps the principal reason of
thU is that their ailections are too exclu
sively personal. A girl vvdl assiduously
practice on the piano a ? long us that will
assist her in fascinating hoc suitors. Hut
how many women outside the ninks oi

fessor hugs his pot theory regarding the

they happen to oppose it , Hut such com
plete devotion to abstract theories is ab
solutely necessary to the discovery of
oriffinnl Ideas ; ami as woman are rarely
able or willing tocmcrco from the haunts
of personal emotion , this explains why
they have achieved proatnc.s in hardly
