loyalty there has grown an ugly crust of
selfishness that transforms his line fuco

tries , nothing that she can do seems to

who thought that to give her mental

dining room where Lobllo is busied
about the table.

Are you losing your senses Mrs. Van

the mother u'oos forward to meet her

sons a llttlo guiltily .ut remembrance of

"Well. Leonard , I thought I'd surprise
you nnd I'm sure , now , that I've suc

to irlvo thanks for , Leonard , much. "
"Glad you think HO , mother , and it's a
real trout to son you. Leslie , ain't din
ner ready , yet ? "
"Y yes , Leonard that Is nearly. "
The hesitating , half-frightened voice
of the young wife catches the mother-in-
law's ' ear. It tolls her a story that she
grieves td hear a story that she feared
to hear from the very beginning ; but a
story of the truth of which , neverthe
less , she has traveled many miles to
"Dinner is ready , Leonard. Como ,
mother. "
"At hist ? Well , I am glad to hear it.
Sit hero , mother ; and if you can find
anything lit to eat I shall bo delightfully
surprised. Leslie's no cook , you know. '
"So 1 preeelvo"says Mrs. Van Hamm ,
the elder.
"Leslie , are you never going to learn
that I llko my steak well done ? ' Just
look at that mother It's absolutely
sickening , "
"I. thought you seemed in a hurry ,
Leonard , and so HO "
"So you gave us a little suggestion of
a butcher's shop , did you ? Pah ! "
"I will cook it a little longer If you
like , Leonard "
"Do , if you expect mo to cut it. "
' Yes , L'cslic , " adds Leonard's mother ,
"and 1 mvholf couldn't touch the stulT ,
really , while it is in that state. For
goodness sake cook It until It Is dune
next time ! "
lled-fuccd und confused the young
wife goes hurriedly kltehcnward with
the beefsteak , For Leonard to taunt
her him ever boon bad enough ; but for
his mother , whom she hardly know , to
PO openly , so impolitely chide her
Heaven pity her if horror wore to bo
added to horror the Ossa of her grief
piled upon tlio Pollen of her despair !
' 'Much to be thankful for , did you say ,
mothorV she heard her husband say as
the meal his.sod once more above the
embers. " "Well , I'll ' leave that for you
to discover. How in this world a woman
cnn 11 vo and not KIIOW how to cook , beats
mo ! "
"Sho can't know everything , Lon.
And 1 suppose her folks thought music ,
dancing and literary accomplishments
would stand her in good btead , " answers
her husbund's mother.
" 'Music , dancing , literary accomplish
ments' fiddlesticks ! Is music going to
make a plo ? Is dancing going to cook a
roast ? " This she hears through the
hissing of angry juices as they fall upon
the now dying embers.
Dancing ! How with his arm about
her with the sobbing sound of the
dreamy waltz-music wrapping thorn in
its melodious , impalpable folds , ho hnd ,
time and again , breathed into her happy
ear , "Oh , Leslie , my love , my darling ,
to go through lifo with you thus would
be heaven ! "
"And I can never express my wishes
never wiy a simple word but. she weeps
it's exasperating ! If ever hullo !
There you arc it's done this time , I
hope ! "
"Give mo just a very small piece ,
Leonard. Meat's never worth u pica
yune if it's done over thanks ! "
"You're right , mother ; but what's
the matter ? "
"Tliia apple-sauce. Did you forgot the
sugar , Leslie ? "
"No , nether , I didn't forgot It ; but
Leonard says I waste fee much bugur
when I try to sweeten "
" 1 never said to leave it so tart that it
twibtH a portion's tongue into knots , did
I ? There's reason in everything , Mrs.
Van Ilnmin ! I'd thank you to pass
mother the sugar-bowl. "
"No , thank you , Leslie , don't trouble
yourself. Unless the sugar is cooked In
with the sauce it never tastes right. "
Tins with a shoving to ono side of the
portion dished up for Mrs. Van Hamm ,
"Got anything to drink , Leslie ? Ten ,
coffee , chocolate any tiling ? "
"Why , n-iio , Leonard , You said that
at dinner wo wcro never to have hot
drinks "
"When wo wore alone , I meant. Yes ,
I know I did , but mother's hero now a
fact that seems to have escaped you
and why upon earth you didn't think to
be a llttlo polite "ami niako her a cup of
tea passes my comprehension. You al
ways drink a cup of tea nt dinner ,
mother , don't you ? "
" I never enjoy a meal without it. No.
thank you no pie. I never eat a plo 1
don't ' make myself. Leonard , do you re
member the mince pie I used to niako
for you to take to school ? "
"Itomomber them ? Well , I siould ]
bay go ! Those wore pies ! Not watery ,
soggy articles biich as these. Do you
think , mother , do you honestly think
you could teach Leslie how you immu-
fucturo such delectable viands ? "
"Well , my son. it depends. You see
Leslie's bringing up was so different
from mine. Her scales wore on the
piano inlno on lish ; and the quill she
used to write with would never touch
her to cook the goose it came from. But
I'll try I'll ' try. '
"There's your chance , Leslie , poixo it !
And may I never have to swallow such
diabolical mouses as I have swallowed
since Bridget "
A choking noise stops his utterance
and puts a sudden end to his mealy har
angue , while the llight of his wife from
the dining room is enough to arro&t his
solllsh train of thought. Has she gone
mud ? Or what upon earth can the fool
ish woman mean ? Can't faho allow a
fellow to talk simply talk !
"Well , good-bye , mother , I'm off.
You'll ' soon see how much I have to bo
thankful for ha-hu ! "
"Good-byo , Leonard , my son. "
'See you ugain at supper. Tell Leslie ,
ploabo. she must try to got along with
loss gas that lust bill's a frightful one.
Lot nor use candles if she hus to have a
light thobo dark days fairly cat up
money. " And lighting an expensive
cigur Mr. Van Hamm goes up town.
AVhon the man of the house is fairly
gone , Mrs , Van Iluinm , the older , seek
ing high and low , finds Mrs. Van Hamm ,
the younger , in her little sowing room
up btairs lost in a perfect paroxysm of
"Leslie ! "
"I I I'm hero ! And if ever I was
glad I was anywhere it is that I am
hero ! " sinking down beside her sobbing
daughter-in-law , who is crouched in ono
corner of the llttlo sofa.
"Are are are you ? " sobs Losllo , po
"Yos , I nm. And so will you bo , too ,
my dear ! It's iust as I feared lie's his
father ever again ! "
"Who's father ever again ? " weeps tlio
young wife.
"In In deed ! " she walls.
"Yos , indeed. Hut leave him to mo
IbuvG him to mo ! "
"Ye yes , ma'am ! "
"Leslie , dear , that man worships you
ho loves you with his whole heart and
oul 0,1 , know Mini But ho luvs al
lowed the rank weeds of selfishness ,
watered by your tears , to so hedge him
in thnt ho has lost sight of the sunshine
of love and is content to stay in the
shadow of ills own self-complacent cgo-
tlsm ! "
"Cry all the harder If you want to at
this truth I'm tolling you it will only
do you good If It rids you of the hist
briny drop. Leslie. I was somewhat se
vere upon you at dinner time perhaps
you noticed It yes ? Well , that isn't
anything to what I'm ' going to be.
There there , don't ' look frightened !
My dear daughter , there's a cortnin bull
I'm going to take by the horns , if you
will permit mo a terrible animal , fero
cious and cruel , and ono that gains
strength with ago. You didn't know
your mother-in-law was so skilled a
matador , did you , or that she was an
uUopt in throwing bundorrilloros ? "
"What do you mean , mother ? "
"It's a peurct , A sham battle would
deceive an onlooker ; but the shots fired ,
though they scorn disastrous , make no
wounds. I shall flro volley after volley
at you , Leslie nay , listen , girl nnd , iil-
thoilgh the Bound'bo something appall
ing , there will bo no bullets to hurt
you. I shall spare you nothing mv
words shall scorn to cut like knives my
tongue bo sharper than li sword. But
bo bravo through it all , remembering
thrice armed Is she who hath her quar
rel just ; und , looking beyond the noisy
din of battle , watch for the rising of the
sun of peace that shall set only at the
ending of your own life's day ! "
At supper Leonard is not allowed the
usual luxury ot finding fault at his
pleasure ; his mother is ahead of him.
Does he but direct his attention this
way or that , everything his eye fulls
upon critically Is , by ills watchful
parent , hauled ever the coals from bis
cuits to canned fruit , from wafers to
jolly. The tea is too strong , the milk
too blue , the butter old.tho cuocso rank.
Even Iho creased tablecloth Is condemn
ed , the big napkins ridiculed , the very
arrangement ot the tea service cen
sured. Leslie's bringing up is again
laid upon thotapis , picked
relentlessly to pieces and fin
ished olT with vinegar sauce. Each
time Leonard opens his mouth , his
mother also opens hers , and her tongue ,
being u feminine one , wins every race ,
from starting point to finish , and the
son. at lust , perforce sits , for the first
tlmodurlng his short married lifo , with
nothing to do but to listen silently to
rhodomontndos that bid fair to throw
his most elaborate olTorts in the shade.
For a whole week this goes on the
fault finding , the bitter taunts , the rancorous
cereus gibingand by the week's end
Leonard 1ms verily come to find himself
an Othello with his occupation gone.
Ho oven begins to look curiously at Los-
He , who throws strange , inexplicable
glances towards his mother , but who
stands the belaboring so calmly and well
that ho grows to respect her courageous
dignity and wish that his mother ,
though cortalnlyin the iight ; , wouldn't
bo quite so hard on hor.
By the middle of next wo.ok ho has
grown absolutely restive , and looks at
his maternal relative with eyes in which
insurrection booms ready to sot alight
the dangerous fires of rebellion. Les
lie poor , patient , gentle little Leslie
how can she stand it all so silently ? Ho
has boon a bit harsh nnd fault-finding
himself of late but never so malicious ,
malevolent or vindictive as is his
mother I Positively ho is ashamed
of her ill-treatment of his Wife
Ids poor Losllo ! How can his
mother expects so muoh of her ? What
if she wore brought up differently from
other common mortals cooks , seam
stresses and the like ? She , his wife ,
could write poems tender bits of verso
that touched one's finer sensibilities and
play with the technique of a master !
That is , at least , she could , once : now ,
how could wo expect such things from
the drudge his own mother seemed to
expect her to become ? What did his
mother know , anyhow his mother that
was brought up on u farm and wont ro
school in u log school-house of things
occult , mysterious and soul-inspiring ,
or of the brain and world from which
his Leslie came ? Did she expect that
ho would bo sutlsfiod to see his wife turn
herself into a slave without ono thought
above the pantry ? By heaven , there
should bo an end to all this and at
once !
"This Is about the dozenth time I've
warned you , LoslloV hears Leonard as
ho comes down to breakfast next morn
ing , "to make ono loaf of bread last
three meals ; it's pure extravagance ,
wastefulness , that will como to want on
your part. I'll admit that baker's bread
is no good any way you put it , and you
are just paying out good hard cash for
tasteless dough nnd air-holes ; but as
you don't Know enough to make bread
white people can eat I suppose you'll '
just go on until you land my son in a
poor houbu ! I'll ' never try to tench you
to make bread again not by a good
deal ! I'm annoyed to death by your
dullness ! If ever a woman was per
plexed , harassed , vexed nnd tormented ,
trying to teach her son's wife the first
meaning of the word economy , I'm ' that
woman. If ever "
"Mother ! "
"Good morning , Leonard. Don't interrupt
torrupt mo , please. When first I offered
to try to teach Leslie hero , to manage
her house and cook a decent mcal ( I lit
tle reckoned pn the miserable material
I wus to wear my very life out upon !
Why any ono who loves to oat as you do ,
Leonard , should have married so com
plete an ignoramus don't glare at mo ,

who knows how to linger a polka or com
pose a jugling rhyme bettor than she

Juno .Tudklns crazy to take you Juno

herited old .ludkins' farm beside "
"Mother ! "
"And who would have never given
you cuuso to open your mouth concern
ing breakfast , luncheon , dinner or sup

"Mother , stop ! If Jane Judklns con
found her wore the last woman allvo
I'd not look at her twice ! What com
pare her that raw-boned , sandy-headed ,
red-faced , loud-voiced creature to my
Leslie ? And , mother , though it may bo
all very well to harangue and goon at a
certain rule , It appears to mo that of
late you have been pitching it pretty
strong. It is true Leslie hasn't had the
same bert of education you have "
"Tho fiumo sort I have had ? hump ! I
should think not , Indeed bless my boul
and body no ! "
"But with all that I don't see thnt It's
necessarily to her disadvantage "
"You don't ? Leslie , stop your bawlIng -
Ing ! If there's anything I-do hate to
see it's n irrown up woman bawl ! Leave
the room ! "
' "Mv wlfo , btay where you are ! "
Leslie , softly crying , touched by the
unwonted tomlorncus shown her by her
husband , stands looking with tear-
dimmed eyes from ono to the other of
her marital relatives. Leonard's eyes
blaze with defiant anger , while his
mother's glonm quizzically upon Ills
wratful countenance. Tlioro is a long
sllont'o between the three occupants of
the llttlo breakfast room , and at its end
the man slowly turns toward Ills now
hysterical wife , und , stooping , places u
kiss upon her tremulous lips. In an
other moment hem1 gone.
"It has como"U lias como nt last !
Thnt last scourging did it , Leslie nnd I
only wonder tlfyf mv tongue didn't
wither nt the roots ! Why , daughter ,
dear , how hyslorfi'nl ' you are you arc

that one little klinl speech and action
from that doty son,1 of mine can so effect

The hist Thui-bday ot November dawns

"Both of us. My son. this is Thanks

A. Simple RcniRijy Which Is Said to 15c
Several papors'of Paris have published
that LaugurdicYro of Toulouse hud ,
at different times , experimented with
success with a now treatment of sure ef
ficiency for the ( jure of that terrible dis
ease , the croup , buys the Purls Temps.
The now treatment consists in the use of
sulphur. Dr. Laugardiorro narrates thus
his first experiment :
"I culled for. some sulphur powder ;
took a tnblospoonful.of it which I diluted
In a glass of water , Ordering to drink
ono tablespoonful of the mixture every
hour , shaking it before using. Next day
lie child wa3 hotter. Now potion for
the next day. The. following day the
child wns cured. The only thing left
was n loose cough which I attributed to
the false membranes circulating in the
trachenl artery. Asking the parents to
save them for mo in case the child should
expectorate thorn , two days after a sud
den lit of coughing expelled them , and
three dried-up pieces the size of a largo
bean were brought to me. ' '
After that euro the doctor obtained
several others , but none more convinc
ing than the following :
"A little girl was dying ; neither cry
nor the least sound could como from her
larynx ; the pimples of diphtheria wore
on her oars , neck , head and cheeks ; her
wheezing breathing could bo heard at
twenty motors on" .
"Tho doctor hnd secured a tube to In-
sufliato nitrate of silver into the larynx.
The parents opposed that , but consented
to make the child swallow the sulphur
ated potion during the night.
"On the next day the child , which I
had considered as lost , wns resuscitated
the voice was restored , the potion was
continued during that day , and the next
tlio child was cured. "
The communication of Dr. Laugur-
diorro is of too much importance to not
bo the subject of a serious and immedi
ate examination , nnd it is for the acad
emy of modiclno to order such.

Mr. Glider's sanctum Is the hand
somest in Now York , in fact , altogether
resthotic. It lias an open lire-place ,
brass andirons , with rugs , hangings ,
draperies , and pictures in tlio highest
style of art , says the Epoch. . It is full
of greens nt Christmas , of flowers at
Easter. In It Mr. Gilder is altogether
charming. His wife is much more sub

cousin of Mrs. Orovor Cleveland , hence
the intimacy between the two families.
Mrs. Glider is also much given to art ,
and spends much time at the brush ,
especially in Bummer , when she IB at
Marion , Mass. , where her husband has
