" You are altogether to tarsh, Corne
lia, in jour mode of treating Laura Lyon
since she became a member of our family-
The poor girl has more than once
noticed, I am very certain, your haughty,
. " Let her notice it, tnamni5," wa3 Cor
nelia Stanhope's scornfully spoken an
wer, while the young lady's handsome
dark eyea flashed imperiously enough.
"For my part, I find it quite impossible
to restrain my dislike for that girl. As
for her being a member of our family, I
must say, mamma, . that I decidedly ob
ject to her being called anything of the
sort. She is dependent upon our kind
ness an orphan to whom wo have char
itably given shelter nothing more."
" But she is your cousin, Cornelia
the child of your dead father's dead sister."
" Who made a horrible low marriage,
by the way," retorted the young lady,
" if report speaks correct. It is useless
for you to scold me, mamma, about my
manner of conducting myself toward
Laura. Between ourselves, I think it
very probable that I shall treat her much
worse -before I treat her much better.
She is an out aiid-out nuisance." .
" You are shockingly wicVed to call
her so," exclaimed Mrs. Stanhope, who,
though what is termed a weak woman,
was now and then given to trausitory fits
ofstrongmindedness in her mode of defend
ing those she loved. " There is nothing
which you have asked Laura to do since
her arrival-in the house that she has re
fused, or 'even hesitated "
" Nonesense, mamma; I know what
you are going to say J " Miss Stanhope
broke in. " Of course Laura has arranged
tny hair for the opera and for balls when
ever I- have asked her. She has also
done sevoral other meniai services. I
don't know that I am particularly obliged
to her for performing them. She is cer
tainly well-fed and clothed at? the house
hold expense ; and she should consider
our kindness in thus feeding and clothing
her ample payment for the slight favors i
which are required at her hands. And
now, please discontinue this argument
on the subject of Laura. Apropos of the
opera, Lord Ellery has sent word to know
' if you and I desired to occupy his box this
evening. I immediately wrote his accep
tance in reply to the note, feeling sure
that you would like to see ' Faust ' once
" Will he accompany us ? "
A faint tinge of color stole into Cor
nelia Stanhope's olive cheeks. ""Of
course, mamma," she answered.
" I suppose so," Mrs. Stanhope said.
" Do you know, Cornelia, that I cousider
the attentions of Lord Ellery most mark
ed and devoted towards yourself? "
" Do you, mamma t a short, nerv
ous laugh followed the words.
" His father, the Marques of Fancourt,
is very rich, is he not ?
" Worth two hundred thousand a year,
I believe." -
" And you would marry him if he
asked you, Cornelia ? "
The young lady bit her lip. The sen
tence, if he asked you," grated very
disagreeably upon her year. During the
past two or tttree weeks, it bad grown
the ruling purpose of Cornelia Stanhope's
thoughts to be come the wife of Viscount
Ellery. She had resolved that no amount
of stern, steadfast endeavour should
be lacking on her part, in the matter of
attaining this object. It i3, indeed, very
" probable that 6he had not yet fully satis
fied herself as to whether love for Lord
Ellery formed even a slight motive of
her present course of action, but it is al
together sure that she was awaro how
dorrinant a motive wordly interest formed.
. " How do you know that he has not
already asked me, mamma ? " she said,
in answer to her mother's question " lie
calls here very eften, and you seldom in
terfere with our tcte a teles."
Then -Cornelia gave a musical little
larjgh, that left her mother in doubt as
to whether she was serious or in fun. and
disappeared very abruptly from the room.
But the truth was that she only hoped
the viscount would propose ; he really
had sot done so as yet.
' Meanwhile, on the afternoon of this
conversation between mother and daugh
ter, pretty blonde-haired Laura Lyon sat
in her small, out-of the way chamber, on
the third floor of Mrs. Stanhope's reii-
!enc, and wondered what special reason
"Providence had for sending her into the
world, any way since she seemed to have
been created to be snubbed, and dis
ttised. and trampled on, would it not
. bs much better if her thoroughly useless
existence came to a clr-ee altogether,
These were very wicked thoughts, of
coarse : but then Toor Liaura-.- who naa
known a life far different from her pres
ent one. was excusable, perhaps, tor
thinking them. ' Iler's had: indeed, been
a life of quiet, domestic happiness, until
that dark eighteenth year, in which death
followed death with such fearful sudden
cess, and she was made an orphan almost
before she had comprehended the bitter
fact.. Then had come the knowledge of
' her father's insolvent condition, and her
Silently to herself while she looked
that afternoon on the snowy pavements of
me streets beneath her, and felt the cold
of a rapidly-strengthening December
wind sweep pastthe panes, and chill them
more and more with every gust silently
to herself, I say, did Laura Lyon recall
the handsome, genial face of one whom
she bad known and loved four years a-o.
It was the eld story. Thev had ..n,.
very passionate vows to each other ; but
the course of true love had run roughly,
. nu ner lamer, unwilling that
Mnrt ihnnM Un,. it.-
vuic lue wne or a poor
man, bad forbidden their tkltAi.l n era A . A
at last the lover had revived toeo and
ugui iio nvna , auu a nnai stolen meet
ing uau taicenpiace between them, and
rW went to India, and so it Wl n
ed. If he had ever written to her, Laura
naa not received nis letters. ,
.. Qnite lost in her sad thou ghis, she let
the day slowly darken-until it-had left
htr little room completely, in shadows At
Jast, a servant knocked at the doesf say
ine, "Dinner is served" Miss-LVoa-s "
and Laura presently deseended to-the din
'Hca. Stanhope and her daughter were
already seated at the table when their
relative entered the room. The latter's
face, Laura could not help observing,
wore a sort of angry scowl. Miss Stan
hope, soon gave vocal proof that she an
noyed: " Lapra," she exclaimed, "you have a
horrid habit of coming down to dinner.
Von 'almost alwavs enter the dining-
room after soup has been served. Per
haps you would be able to appear more
punctually if we rang several peals of a
huge bell." -
Laura volunteered no response, under
standing how useless such a course would
prove. She seated herself, and, with the
exception of a few words to Mrs. Stan
hope to excuse her, received the lady's
acquiescence, and left the dining room.
8ho knew that her calm, patient si
lence had in no manner shamed or hum
bled the hauahty, supercilious nature of
her cousin Coruclia. She knew that
nothing could ever change that cousin's
contemptuous, cruel treatment nothing, !
; except either her own absence, or that of
Cornelia, from Mrs. Stanhope s house. It
was very hard, poor Laura tearfully med
itated, being called upon almost daily and
houtly to bear the covert sneers and
scoffs of one she filt to be her moral in
ferior. How a pair of manly blue eyes,
that she had once known and loved to
gaze upon, would have flushed with in
dignation, in the old dayo of courtship,
had she told that brave lover of hers any
story of injustice and insolence like that
which she could now tell.
" Oh, let me bid good-bye to all hope
less longings," the girl at length mur
mured. " He can not know he is far,
far away he has, perhaps, forgot "
She somehow could not tell herself
that he had forgotten her. And so she
sat in her little chamber, and dreamed
that he loved her still very; very dearly,
and that they would one day meet.
Again there came a knock at the door,
This time a servant said, " Miss Cornelia
wishes, Miss Lyon, that you will please
come down stairs and arrange her hair for
the opera this evening. " '
Five minutes later, Laura stood meekly
behind her cousin s chair, arranging (Jor-
nena s glossy tresses as somehow only her
nimble fingers could arrange them. This
work performed, in countless minor details
of her toilet Cornelia did not hesitate un
blushingly to ask Laura's taste and assis
"You really would make a capital
maid," Miss Stanhope remarked, as she
surveyed her costume in the opposite
mirror, being now thoroughly dressed for
the opera. " Maria," glancing toward her
femme de chambre, " will havo to look
out for her laurels. Here, Laura, just
carry my white merino cloak down stairs,
won't you, while I follow ! 1 wautyou to
pull out the folds of my dress when I
reach the dining-room, so that these
flounces -may not look tumbled as I re
ceive Viscount Ellery."
" Certainly," Laura said, receiving the
cloak which her cousin offered.
Miss Stanhope and her cousin had been
in the dining-room about five minutes,
when the former glanced impatiently to
ward a clock on the mantle, exclaiming,
" It certainly is very odd that Lord El
lery dosn't make his appearance, lie
ought undoubtedly to be here by five
minutes to eight o'clock: besides 4 Faust'
is my favorite operaaod I don't want to
miss a note of it." " Mamma " to her
Brother, who had just entered " isn't it
strange that Lord Ellery is so late ? "
Just as Cornelia finished speaking a
double knock sounded at the front door.
" That is he ! " exclaimed the young
lady. " I am so glad." Then, after
about three minutes had elapsed, and the
knock had again sounded, ' What is the
reason, mamma, that our door is not at
tended to ?The idea of Lord Ellery
being obliged to knock twice ! It is
" 1 sent HODcrt on an errana just aner
dinner," Mrs. Stanhope begau, "and

Laura was not a bit awed by her cousin
just then, however. ' ,
" Ellery 1 " she exclaimed, turning
toward her old lover. " What doei thiB
moan, Ernest ? Your name is " .
" Bedale just the same, darling, as the
family name; but Ellery is my title.
The recent death of my unmarried uncle
made my lather a marquis, and me, con
sequently, a viscount. Riches came to
us, also, unexpectedly, at the same time,
and by the same incident."
" And so Cornelia's grand Viscount
Ellery was all the while my own dear
Ernest ? " Laura said, quite oblivious of
her cousin's presence.
"Yes, darling," Lord Ellery said;
" and I am sure that your cousin Corne
lia will congratulate me on having found
my long-lost sweetheart."
Did Cornelia Stanhope congratulate
her cousin ? She was obliged to do so
at Laura and tho Viscount s wedding, a
month later. But thcro are some smiles
that mean frowns some blessings that
mean curses. '

Personal Exi-lanatios. A Wash
ington corrrespondent of N. Y. Times
says a great deal ot amusement was cre
ated in the House on the 24th ult. by
the fact that Hon. Samuel Hooper, of
Massachusetts, felt it necessary to rise
to a personal explanation, inJ order to
relieve himself from the responsibility of
the polygamy speech of his namesake,
Delegate Hooper, of Utah, which had
been ascribed to him by a Philadelphia
paper. The paper in question had re
buked him editorially in most indignant
terms for advocating such doctrines. The
article was read, and the utter inapplica
bility of the whole thing to a man of
Mr. Hoopers views, caused shouts of
laughter at his expense which ho hearti
ly eojoyed." When it was charged that
his conversion was the result of the visit
of the Ways and Means Committee ;to
Salt Lake, last suaimer, the House and
galleries roared with laughter. : The ed
itor promises a prompt correction.
A religious sect called the " Peculiar
People" have been attracting some atten
tion in England. One of their "peculiar"
ideas is that no medicine, nor any special
attention, must be given to one in sick
ness, on the grouud that it would be con
trary to the word of God to interfere and
save the sick. Recently a child died at
FoLbing, a village near the Thames, and
investigation proved that she had been
sunering with bronchitis and a severe i
"cold pievious to her death, and that noth
ing had been done to relieve tier. Un
the trial the father stated that he could
not allow medicine be given to her, as it
would grieve the Lord I '

carrying into practical application the principles
for which we have successfully striven. And we
particularly commend those points in his Inaugu
ral Address, wherein he declures " let it bo un
derstood that no rcpudiator of one farthing of our
public debt will be trusted in public places, and it
will go far towards strengthening a credit which
ought to be tho best in tho world," and " I would
proteet the law abiding citizen, whether of native
or foreign birlh, wherever his rights are preju
diced or tho flag of our country floats ;" and " I
will nave no policy to enforce against the will ol

tion will wisely and firmly protect the interesrs
and sustain tbe dignity of the Nation in respect to
ether nations, and especially with regard to our
just claims against Great Britain.
4th. " e denounce all lorms ot repudiation as a
national crime, and the natiiffial honor requires
the payment of the public indebtedness in the
uttermost good faith to nil creditors at homo or
abroad, not only according to the letter, but the
spirit of tbe laws under which it was contracted.
And for this purpose, we favor a strict economy
the Administration of tho National Govern
ment, and tho application to such payment of all
surplus revenue from whatever source derived ;
and that taxation should be equalized and reduced
as rapidly as the national faith will permit.
5th. We make no distinction between citizens,
whether of foreign or native birth ; and that we
sympathize now and ever with men of all nation
alities striving for self government.
6th. That we are opposed to any change in our
naturalization laws which shall admit to citizen

to be made, and such expectations created, the
sooner Lifo Insurance will come to rest on its true
motive, and men insure their lives for security,
and not for dividends. The best and tbe most
popular companies will then be those that prom
ise only equity, and render all that they promise,
and furnish the best security, with the most up
right and judicious. management."

THE simplicity and practicability of this new
Plow commends' it favorably to the special
notice or every farmer. It possesses a decided
superiority over all other plows now in use. Tbe
whec'.s are four fect in diameter, and run on the
uuplowed land. Its entire construction is in no
way complicated. The plow is managed in every
manner with ease, and requires only two levers
to be used in milking any alteration. Tbe supe
riority of the "Gay" Plow will bo clearly shown
by the following certificate :
We, the nndcrsigncd, citizens of Linn county r
Oregon, having purchased and used upon our
farms the "Gay" plow, hereby certify tbat the
same lias given us cotire satisfaction. Its facility
for adjusting to suit tbe depth of furrow without
movi g from the seat, is simple and easy. We
like the plow for its draught, because the' same is
brought to bear diret-tly upon the plow-bcnm in
stead of the carriage ; also, leeause it is strong
and durable, all except the wood-work being con
structed of wrought iron no ea tings are used.
Tbe wheels running upon the solid land is an ad
vantage over oilier gang-plows, in stfiking off"
land aud in plowing, not having to make the nec
essary changes in the machinery, and tbe scat is
always level, not tbr wing tho driver forward or
sideways as in other plows, lietter work and
more of it can be accomplished by the use of this
Plow than by band.
We take pleasure in recommending tbe "Qat"
Plow to our brother farmers, as one having no
superior in Oregon.
