from the Alameda (Cal.) Enciual o
Feb. 15, 1879, and is said to have

at our elbow, however, detracts from

are certainly not borrowed from any-known

The Xovember afternoon was darkening
into night as Florence and I drove from the
cemetery where we had seen our father laid
to rest. 1 was 22 that bummer, and the af
tiauced bride of Albert Freeman ; but, since
my father's failure and death, I had not
seen him : and my heart told me only too
plainly that the love which had been given
to Marion Wilde, the favored of fortune,
had not been transferred to Marion Wilde,
the homeless orphan.
Florence, though younger than I, was
married ; had her homo and her husband,
and so could afford to look calmly on our
father's failure and "death. But I what
was I to do ? I must begin the world and
earn a living for myself.
We stopped before the mansion that had
so long been home that after to-night
Would be home no longer.
' 1 wish to speak to you, Marion," Flor
1 led the way into the library.
"Well," I said, sitting down in the
gloom, " What is it, Florence.
" It is this, Marioa ; what do you mean
to do '! "
' I don't know."
"It is time you did," said Florence.
" You must earn your own living. I tell
you quite frankly that I cannot oher you a
home, and you must get some situation.
To-morrow you must leave thw house. You
have no money. Where are yon going '! "
I dropped my head on the table and burst
into tears. Oh, the unspeakable desolation
and misery of that moment ! Aly sister had
never been overstocked with ail'ection for
her family, and thoughts of the world had
always tilled a large part in her heart ; but
it did seem as if sue might at least give me
time to bury my father before thrusting me
into it and not my father only, but my
lover also, for was he not dead to me, and
must 1 not bury him out of my sight V
'I have been more thoughttul for you
than you have been for yourself," pursued
Florence. " I have found you a temporary
home. Airs. Brown is in want of a seam
stress. I have spoken for you ; her terms
are liberal and you go at once."
Marion Wilde go out as a seamstress !
flow cooly she talked of it.
You will go there to-morrow morning,
when you leave here, and while you are
there you can advertise for another place.
1 must be going. Good-bye."
1 did not answer, and sue was gone. Then
I sank down in my loneliness, poverty and
misery, and I cried until I could cry no
Oh, Albert, Albert! l cried in my
great grief, " is this the love you have pro-
lesseil lor me :
And so the long night passed, as all nights
ninst ; but the morning lound me a changed
woman. It seemed as if in that one night
I had given up everything that had been
dear to.me. It did not break my heart, ei
ther. Albert Freeman should never do that;
when my heart broke it should be for a wor
thier object. Uo! I thanked Heaven that
1 had learned Albert Freeman's unworthi
ness so soon.
With no choice left, I took my way to
Mrs. Brown and remained for three months
a member of her family. One morning an
advertisement in the paper attracted my at
tention, and I dettrmined to answer it, It
was for a copyist. A few minutes later I
knocked at the office door of Edwin Graham,
fle was a barrister, and one of the most tal
ented men at the bar.
"You advertised for a copyist. I said,
" and I have called ,o see if 1 could do what
Wall you write sometmug lor me, ne
said, and he placed some writing materials
before me. ;V ?
I wrote several lines, which lie examined
and said would do.
I found terms liberal, and carried home a
large roll of papers. It was arranged that
after this the clerk was to call for my wri
tings and bring me orders.
Mr. Graham called occasionally to give
directions about the law papers. He was
a man of about 35, very kind in his manner.
and he occasionally brought me a book to
read. His little Kindnesses were very wel
come in my great loneliness.
I have forgotten to say that I had gone to
reside witn an Old lady whom i Had once be
friended during a long illness, but who had
since received a smali legacy which enabled
her to live comfortably.
In time my writings grew to be other than
the copying of law papers. First, I wrote a
short sketch, and sent it to one of the lead
ing periodicals ; it was received and paid
for, and I continued writing. Soon after a
new book was given to the public, and loud
ly applauded. A few evenings afterwards,
Mr. Graham called and brought . me the
book, saying he wished me to read it, as he
felt sure I should like it. The author was
unknown, he Said ; she only gave a ficti
tious name ; and all the efforts of the pub
lic had been unsuccessful in finding her
out. I said nothing. I chose to keep my
I had made up my mind to give up copy
ing, and told him so. He looked at me in a
surprised sort of a way for a moment, then
said: "May I ask why, Miss Wilde 1 Are
you to bo married '. Tell me-that it is not
He took my hand, then went on, hurried
ly : "I love you. Yon cannot be surprised
at this ; you must have heard it before.
Tell me that no one else has a claim upon
your heart. "
I told him the story of my past life.
" You cannot care for a second love," I
But he only clasped me in his arms, saying,
" Your second love is more prceioua to me
than the first love of any other woman. "
I told him that evening who was the au
thoress of the book he so much admired.
A look of proud joy came into his face.
" I thought it was like you ; it made me
think of you when I read it ; but I did not
dream of this. Why have you kept it such
a secret ? "
"Can you wonder?" I replied. Have I
not learned what it is to be loved for my
good fortune, and then forsaken when it
forsook me '! I wished to be loved for my
eelf alone. "
Only once have I met Albert Freeman ; it
Was seven years after my father's death.
He didn't know of my marriage, and begged
me to forgive him.
" O, Marion ! " he said, " you would for
give and pity me jf you knew what I have I
suffered. Only forgive me, Marion, and let i
me win your heart once more. Promise to
be my wife, and nothing on earth shall part
What a flood of bitter memories oppressed
" There was a time, long past." I answer
ed, " when my heart was all your own ; but
you cast it back as worthless. Have I not
suffered, think you ? I would not trust you
with my heart if it were ever so free

From- time to time we read of mishaps
meeting women traveling alone, till it some
times seems as if it were utterly unsafe, for
a woman to travel alone. Still, women niust
travel, and very often, alone, and, by exer
cise of due caution and foresight there is no.
reason why it should not be perfectly safe,
for them to do so.
There are a few rules w'hich, if followed,
it seems, would save a world of anxiety
1. Before starting on a journey familiar
ize yourseif with th3 route, and with names,
of good hotels at the various stopping places.
2. Never travel with just enovgh motley
but always carry enough to provide for any
possible emergency. This will save much

I larger part of your money in some inside-
pocket, out of sight.

A few days ago Hon. A. J. Dufur, from
Oregon, received a letter from J. A. Faxton,
President of the Permanent International
Exhibition, referring to the admirable ex
hibit made by the State of Oregon" at the
Centennial Exposition an exhibition that
reevaled, to the surprise of every one, Mr.
Paxton said, the remarkable agricultural
productiveness of the State, the exceptional I
mineral wealth of the land, and the high ;
social culture of the people. This credita-
ble display is now in the Permanent Exposi
tion ijuiiuing, ana air. raxton saggests in
the letter that it would be to the advantage
of the citizens of Oregon who have land fir
sale, and whose interests need to be vital
ized by capital, that this too meagre collec
tion of objects be enriched by sulncieiit ad
ditions to make it worthy of their great

S. Bo not wait till about to make some
change in train before impairing of the con

9. Under all circumstances endeavor to'
retain your presence of mind. One who can
do this will have no trouble traveling.
I and, instead of its being unwise for women
j to travel alone, I t;iink it an advantage for'
I them to make trips alone, for there are few
people who are not at times' obliged to do so,
I and experience does away with much of the1
possible danger in traveling.'

A- Stockton dispatch states that a terrific
explosion occurred at Iraif-past two o'clock
to-day at the head of the Stoekton slough
on Eldorado street. A crowd of more than
two hundred people assembled to witness the
trial of the new propeller pump set in the
slough and run by a threshing engine. Those
who stood near were prostrated, and the
body of the engine was blown a distance of
150 feet through the crowd. Tr.e dead lay
in every direction, some falling into the
slough from a bridge, and ten or twelve bod
ies iay in one heap at the northwest coiner
of the bridge, others lav strewn dead and
dyiug on the street, blown from fifty to one
hundred feet. The heads of somj were
blown to pieces, and others blown to the
ground witli such terrific force as to break
almost every bone in their bodies. Faces
hands and whole persons were steamed iu
dirt and smoke and. cinders. The wounded
were promptly cared for, and tbe dead le:t
undisturbed until the excitement had sub
sided, when they were removed to the coro
ner's office. The explosion was tho result
of recklessness on the part of the engineer.
The steam gauge had refused to wortt, and
after the engineer hail attempted to fix it
and failed, he screwed down the safety valve
and went on with the work. The explosion
occurred about fifteen minutes afterwards.

you will get at home. .Some of you will gee
pleasure in the theatre, and some of you
will get delight in the church ; but happi

work is over, and he feels that he has run
out of the storm into the quiet harbor of
home where he can rest in peace with his
family, is something real. It does not mane
much difference whether you own your house
or whether you have only one little room in
that house, yon can make that one little
room a true home to yon. You can people
it with such moods, you can turn to it with

with their presence, and will be to you the
very perfection of a aonie.

Saturday, the body was dressed for burial
and placed in a coffin. The friends began
to collect at the residence of the bereaved
family. Suddenly a slight moan was heard
to issue from the coffin in which the body
had but recently been placed. This very
unexpected noise greatly startled the assem
bled neighbors and the people were about
to rush from the room, when the husband of
the sujiposed deceased lady approached the
coffin and was astonished to find the body
moist ami warm. A closer examination dis
closed the fact that the woman was brath
ing. Restoratives were applied and the sup-
posed dead, came back to life and soon was
able to sit up and converse. It is needless
to add that the father and other members
of the family were overjoyed to have, the
wife and mother restored to them. Singu
lar as this circumstance may seem, we are
assured that it is true in every particular.
Boxed Ears. Never give a child "a box
on tiie ears," for not only i3 deafness caused
by " boxes," which rupture (as they continu

quent a result, may be followed by disease
of the bone, giving rise to abscess of the
brain, and having a fatal termination. Med
ical men alone can be fully aware how fruit
ful a source of suffering and danger is repre
sented by a box on the ear. Yet this i
