Amelia Fitzgerald 11 the danf-Mir of a north
country manufacturer, w ho li ft her many
thousands ot pound in hard cash, with part
of which Ahhotscraithio has lately been pur
chased. It is a handsome Btonc house, in the
Centre of a lair Low land estate, honnic with
moor and forest. Iliihes apart, she is a lovable
little woman enoughs jet Lttciin I'ltergald
docs not love her, and for no moio valid rea
son than that she is not somcl ody ilse. Then
why have married her ? 1 he question is only
too pregnant, tho answer too olmous. When
a mutual friend, a inatch-tnahing woman, had
first broached thosulij ct t ln.n, )o mrwered
at once:
"Can you ask mo? If the joung lady is
fool enough to marry me, hue 1 am, and let's
Waste no rr.oro words about it."
Amelia Huggins was not bug fiom the
school room, and fill of sweet schoolrooniish
view of love. Tho younger son of an t.ir!, fio
feet eleven, handsome, and apparently
charmed with her; what moie could she want?
Now, Lucius was no abandoned wretch; ho

himself with a despci.ita passion for lkrtha

But the son had not acrjuirod any ot that gen

All this time Amelia was perfectly happy
and screno; for when Lucius was with her lie
was moro than ecu mix prtlt mint, ninl thin
had she not gamed licrown way in tho nutter
of invitinir theso Y villains?
And they were coming, too. "Were going
to poy othtr msiU in the neighborhood, and
should he so delighted," Lady Cons'antu's
Doto had said.
Lady Coiist.mtia was Itiuliu's stepmother,
and the cirl was ill pendent on her for food,
shelter and clothing utterly dtpendiut; ami
her father's chattering, good-natured, shallow -patetl
widow was calculating, though Kindly,
and had, tin reover, but a limited income.
To marry Lucius, llirdia knew, wns utteily
impossih'e- knew it fiom thu inument the
first lovodlutter acttattd her heart; so site re
signed him gave him with her own fno will
to Amelia, Sho had a mot bid longing to wit
pees the tueeiss of hit' work and had accom
panied her mother to Abbotscraithm, delud
ing herself into thu ldta that she would liuicc
forth cudme tho void in hei life with less bit
ter pangs if she wile but allotted to see Lin ins
rich, happy and contented.
So, w hiii 1-nly Coustuutia told htr Unit she
))d received an mutation fiom Mis. l'itgti
kid, and ill her blindness and her lino of living
at othtr people's expense snpgrstiil that they
should accept it, Hit die had otlerid no opposi
tion. When a woman allows herself to line a
married man, she may tell her conscience that
every taint itont mo witu panitatus Iter guilt;
but sho must be morally blind, indeed, if she
imagines that all the ijiislititsof all tho angels
centered in tho wrong ono would ever ho
weighed with her in the uidiilc.eiico of her urn
lawful passion.
Theie was something artless an evident
dcairo to like and to bu liked about the wo
man in posses' ion, which went sti night to
Dirdie's heart and disarmed her of au ill
feeling against Lucius' wife that is to Bay
no more.
'Tins is the first time 1 luvo eer met any
really great friends of my husband," said
Amelia, pouting out thn tea, "and Jim don't

She was something of n rattle, was her la
dyship, and not over-particular about being
listened to. This llirdiu had Ioiil' since ascer
tained. At that moment she was dreamily
contemplating Amelia.
"How a man might love that sweet little
woman if she had only got the first chance of
Jilinl" was the mental ejaculation,
A week passed, and llinlie suggested to La
dy Coustsutia that it wai time they took their
leave and went to the house of some other
friends; but Lady Gmttantia was comfortable

bctwctti them she n vcr thought; only of how
ulttrly incapable a man like I'erey was to
supplant Lucius in her axlii'iitr heart
JJittirly angry with liiiiitelf for evoking it,
and with lludio for (liering what he wan
pleased to call an insult, he left tho erbor
without another word, walking rapidly along
the path toward the house. Vhea he i
uhott' naif w.y boiiio sound attracted his at

ing bark, gun in hand and alone, had reached
the arbi r ami stopped: niiothci tccond and ho
passed inside and out oi view.
"So so, my lady I '1'leaso leae me; I
would rather be alone.' Of curc, ou would.
Hut jou will not carry on jour little games at
Ahbotscraitnio if I can prevent it."
In less than five minutes Amelia, forewarn-
d by I'erey, was creeping along through
the brushwood to tho back of tho arbor, to
learn, if possible, herself unheal d. something.
of whit was going on between her husband
and Ihrdic Vcrulam.
"I would never have come if I bad known;
but, h, Lucius, I thought I could havo beino

"My darling, 1 did my utmost to prevent it;
but she was very positive, nnd I web you

did not think you would care so very much."
"Oh, Lucius, I should have made no eneri

thought I was braver. Il only Lady 0 mtau

"My poor, poor, sweet love. llirdicl" was

History of the Tomato.
A good many years ago a scamp who had
recently arrived from tho Bermuda Islands,
was sent to York county Pa., jail for some
offense committed against tho aws of the com
mon wealth. He had with him. a few seeds
which ho planted in the r'ch soil of the jail
yard. Before the plants which sprang irom
seed readied maturity he was discharged, and
no one knew the name or nature of them
They grew luxuriantly, bearing fruit of a large
size and unusual appearance. As this strange
fruit ripened, its color changed from green to
a brilliant red, and became an object of won
der and admiration to all the inmates of the
jail. Mrs. Klinefelter, tho lady keeper, cau
tioned all tho prisoners against eating any
of the fruit, as sho was sure it was poisonous,
and l esides that, sho had promised tho man
w ho had planted the seed that sho would en
dotvor to preserve specimens of it for him
should ho return in time.
Just when the fruit vvos fully matured the
Bermuda pri oner revisited the jail and asked
to see tho plant. This request granted, he
next caucu i"r pepper, salt una vinegar, anil
to tl o horror of tho good lady, commenced to
cat of tho supposed poisonous fruit with a rel
ish that astonished the beholders. Afler en
jojingthe strange repast, he informed Mrs.
K. that tho fruit or vegetable was tho tomato
or love apple, and it would be found whole
some and nutritious.
Thu seed of the remaining tomatoes were
carefully preserved and distributed among the
friends nnd neighbors oi the lady, and thus
this now popular esculent wasintrotlucfd into
tho ancient itnd goodly borough of York. For
many jears thereafter it was cultivated as an
ornament rather than for table ue, but by
decrees its merits becan to be moro fullv un
derstood and appreciated, and there, as else
where it gicw into general public favor.

It way bo new to many of our readers that
in Eastern cities frogs are considered excellent
eating, and that the markets are kept sup
plied for tho demands of hotels and eating
houses. In the city of Boston alone, .hun
dreds of dozens are sold daily. The catching
of those animals give employment to many.
Every well kept hotel is as well supplied with
frogs as with chops and steaks. As a general
thing only the legs are used, and they are said
to ho delicate in flavor. They are caught alive
if possible, and are kept in hogsheads of
water, into w hicli bits of meat and vegetables
aro thrown in order to fatten them. At inter.
.vols they are taken out and allowed to exer
cise within a given tpace, and again put in
clean water till sufficiently fattened for mar
ket. One dealer in Boston keeps a dozen men
employed about the various ponds, shipping
the animals in moss in boxes to the city. The
French have always been called a frog-eating
people; the Germans and Americans have
gradually adopted the taste as well. At first
thought it seems revolting, yet turtles and
eels arc equally as disagreeable to look at,
and are eaten by most people with a relish.
