Gatli in Cincinnati Euipiirer. Even our Presidents have poor luck with their marriages. Washington married his adopted daughter, who was his wifo'a grandchild, to his ow nephew, and tho last 1 heard of then was tho sale to tho Government of Homo of Washington's old fuinitur by tho posterity. John Adams had a daughter named Abigail, who mar ricd a young revolutionary officer named Smith. In taking caro of Smith who was but mediocre, Adams incurra many enmities. Tho ladies may bo further interested m tho subject of tho marriages of im nortant people. Mr. Jefferson had very interesting daughters, and they married Virginia politicians around him to very httlo satisfaction in at least ono case. Maria, tho best look mn of tho girls, died in 1810. llor litis band had been a sporting man and horseman, nnd it appears that both the sons-in-law of Jefferson reouired indorsements, otc, which brought tho old man s gray hairs down to mondi cancy, in addition to his own linan cial errors. Aaron Burr, on tho other hand, had one daughtor.and slio madoa brilliant marriago, but it was her father who involved her and her husband in his unscrupulous linancial and political tricks, rmncu Her husband, and when she embarked from South Carolina with her child to seok her father, sho met somewhere- in this world an ano nizing death; it is a legend that pirates took tiiu vessel and mado this brill unit young women and her child walk tho plank. No evidence, however, ox ists on tho subject except hearsay; at tnat timo tnero were pirates and pira teers. mi i .ino most oninant marriago ever made in tho political circles of tho country in tho times of Washington was that of Ann Willing to William IMngham. They married early in thoso days, especially where- thcro was money, and Ann Willing married at sixteen. Her husband was descended from a Quaker blacksmith, but his family had for four generations mado prosperous marriages, and durmc our revolutionary war tho husband got otic or tne country and held a post tion of half Uritish, half American consul in ono of the West India isl ands to which privateers resorted Ho camo homo very rich and received as well tho Bingham moneys, and ho chose tho daughter of Willing, who was President of tho United States bank and business partnor of Robert Morris. Tho Willincs wero tho finest people in Philadelphia. Tho present cecrocary liayani is descended from one of them. Freshly married in her bloom, thebrulo and husband went to I'.uropo'and remained awav fivo veara wiim. ..i ti. ...... f -vv l-iu 111 n UUUUt'l t IIIU UUUl I Ul tho French kinti by Minister Adams. and tno young man was greatly ad mired as the first American over seen abroad. When ho returned, at theconi mencement of Washington's adininis tration, they built the finest houscov- er seen in Philadelphia up to that timo and not excelled perhaps in tho pres ent day. It was filled with tho host in rm tu re to bo bought in Franco and with tho best pictures from Italy. Alon" came votini? Barinrr. tlin Imh'IihIi banker, and Haw tho daughter of this pair so superbly brought up with a town House and country house, and he manied her; and tho larger portion ol tho Bingham property, which amounted to $1,200,000 in money, went to swell tho capital of the Bar ings. Tho young mother, however, having lost herself in society, caught cold in an imperfect dress ono night mm was t-tizuu wir.n consumniion and sho died in tho West Indies at an early ago. Sho had a sister of whom great things wero expected, but along camo a dissoluto jj'renc U nobleman without any standing or property. and he tempted this girl to go out with him one night and ho kept her out all night, to thohorrorand wonder of tho town, and then mado a compromise with her parents whereby thev cavo him money to send her home: sho was divorced by legislature, her father hav ing become United States Senator, und so httlo was mado of the mattor by tho Marine family that she was solicit ed in marriago by her brother-in-law Baring, and after living with him until hia decease Bho married another French nobleman and passed out of notice. President Tay'or'H daughter ran away with Jellerson Davis. President Monroo a daughter married her cousin. and they havo left noino descendants at Washington and in tho State of Maryland. Nollio Grant is tho last President's daughter to draw atten tion. Sho saw a young, bright-faced Englishman on a steamboat and fellln love with him without much reason or inquest, and ho turned out to bo ap parently a sort of boys' companion, liardly oyer looking up to tho digninty ot acquaintance with grown men. Ho therefore seeks his pleasure in London when ho has money to spend, and sho stays at homo with her baby. '1 ho marriage of Ulaino'o son is a testimony to the heautv. modesty and sweetness of Mrs. Kevins, tho mother of tho bride, who has been too much esteemed, on all these points for her daughter topass into nothingness. In tills case wo know wiiat tho poet means when he says: A thins of beauty Is iv inv forever: Its burliness increases; it will never Pans into nothingness; but still will keep. ALL FOR THE BEST. X ThankucliliiK Story. "Who was that 1 heard talkin' to you just now?" asked Mr. Cary, as ho entered the kitchen door. "Miss Jorden," replied his wife, "Sho wants us to drop in to help eat turkoy this ovOnin'. Mr. Hatfield and the now minister and their wives aro to bo there. Wo aro to stop on the way homo from meet in'." "How does sho know we are gom' to mcctin'? I am sure it is not Sunday," returned Mr. Cary. "Why. William, you know this is Thanksgivin'," urged Mrs. Cary. "I am thinkin' it is mighty little we've got left to give thanks for," re turned tho old man with a sigh.' "Never distrust Providence, William. Seed timo and harvest, Ho has prom ised, and wo have his word for His care oven unto hoary hairs. Man, man, don't take on so. Ho is tho same God that told the children of Israel to go forward, and did ho fail to open them a way?" and Mrs. Cary left tho pudding sho was stirring, and crossed over to tho corner, where her husband had drawn tho old arm-chair. "I have tried to servo Him for forty years, Rachel, and it is a little trym to oo leit homeless when mv nair is gray and my eyes aro dim," ho replied. "It is written, 'I will never leave thee nor forsake thee, sho said softly "And yot, Rachel, the homo wo havo worked so hard to pay for will bo knocked down to tho highest bidder to-morrow. The roof over our heads sholters us to-night for tho last time, With a cold, stormy winter at hand we will be cast helpless out in the snow I can sco uothin' boforo us but tho poor-house," ho answered bitterly "It seems hard, William, but tho Lord will provide if wo but trust him," sobbed the poor, tired woman. "I'm a thinkin' wo've been all wrong in brmgin' up our children. If wo had been satisfied for them to bo gin where wo did, instead of where wo left oft, tho farm noed never have been mortgaged." Wo did it all for tho best, father we meant to do our duty, and if wo mado a mistake, God only knows all about it." "Ungrateful children is tho sorest punishment that can bo visited upon indulgent parents. I hoped, when our children wero small, that thoy would tako caro of us in our old days; but instead of supporting us, they aro bur dens on our worn-out strength. Tho girls can sit and seo their mother weann out her strength for them, nud Robert would to God we had buried him in his innocent childhood." Tho mother Bighed heavily, and then replied sadly: "If Robert would only do ngiit, l would uo willing to begin life anew. It seems to mo his reforma tion would givo us both a new leaso on life." "But I havo given him up. Thero is no rest for us, but in tho grave. His destruction is only a matter of time. When I think of tho bright promise of his early years, I almost curso tho college that taught him tho uso ol intoxicating drinks," exclaimed the father, earnestly. "Jt was ovil associates, William, not tho book-learning, that ruined our boy. Who knows but God may savo him yet? He does not forgot tho pray era wo havo put tin for him." "j reckon not, out it is hard to Bavo a confirmed drunkard," returned tho father. "Not too hard for tho grace of God With him all things nro possible. It is hard to givo up everything for no fault of our own, but God rules, and t must Do all lor tho best." Tho old man shook his head with a weary sigh, and his .good wife, the partner of all his iova and sorrows. drew her chair closer to him. took his cold hands in her own, and deep silcuco loll upon thegray-haircd couplo. ino aged parentH wero not awaro that their conversation reached other oara than thoir own. Tears sprung to tne eyes ol two of their listeners, and Alice and ICaty Cary, in whispered comments, agreed that mother's timo to rest had como at last, Robort, Htrotched lazily on tho old-fashiouod sofa, could not fail'to catch thosouud of tho voices in tho adjoining apart ment, and, though tho girls never thought of taking him into their con fidence, ho resolved that, in spito of ins lather h distrust, ho would Uelpau- wor ins motiior s prayers. ile knew tno farm had been mort gaged to keep him at collego, and ho iad promised to seo it lifted: but in- Btoad of paying it off, ho had been early adding to its intorest. A sense of his ingratitude almost overwhelm ed him, and to hide his emotion ho took his hat and hurried from the room. "Ho isofltotownnow, to spend tho day in addingsorrow to theoverflowing cup poor latner anu mother aro com pelled to dilnk." Big bed Alice. Robert caught her words, and pans- cu wi jvctbiu n lupiy. "If ho is doomed to a drunkard's grave, the sooner lie fills it the better for us all," she returned in a hard voice. Robert waited for no more, but rushed madly across tho meadow, and crowing the little brook at its bot tom bought reluge among tho rocks in tho wood beyond where he allow ed great sobs of remorse to shake hw strong frame. Feeling his own inabil ity to break the fel tors that bound him, he humbly carried his burden to the Ono who is over ready to help; and when he returned in thegatheringdusk ho was ready to gladden tho heavy hearts in tho desolate homo with thtt joyful tidings of tho victory ho had won. "Wo havo something for which to givo thanks yet," cried tho father in tears. "Hero I have been doubting God's lovo and kindness, even while lie was preparing my heart's desire for my thanksgiving song." Tho next week they moved into a poor, inconvenient tenement house, but the tender caro their children lav ished upon them, made this the hap piest winter of their lives. Robert succeeded in obtaining steady work, though not such as he would havo chosen, but he was wise enough to understand that if lie wished to ac complish anything, ho must begin at tho bottom and work his way up. Tho girls relieved tho mother of the greater part of tho household work mean while adding a little to tho general fund by their busy needles. When spring came Robert obtained h position as under teacher in the academy, and Alice, leaving Kutio to caro for tho old folks, iound her musio had at last sorved a good purpose, and daily sho bravely submitted to tho wearisome monotony of a imiBio teacher. Though Kniie spent most of her time in tho dingy garret no ono except her sister know of. tho patient work that was destined to add Katie Cary'a name to tho long list of talented art ists. After the girls understood that Robort was really to bo trusted, ho was taken into their secret, and tho con spirators enjoyed many happy mo nients hiding away irom the old peo ple's sharp eyes. alio long not summer nad beon suc ceeded by tho golden autumn, and Thanksgiving had returned to glad den tho closing year. In the Cary home nothing had been said about tho feast that thoy always had been wont to enjoy on this happy day. At tho church door Robert was waiting with old Bet and Dolly, when tho oth er members of the family camo out.' Ho proposed a short drive through tho glowing woods, but merely went by a winding route to tho dear old farm-houso, whero thoy found tho same conveniences they had left a year before Everything was in per fect order, and a fat turkey smoked at tho head of a well-filled table. To add to tho bewildermont of the white hairod couple, a new deed for the farm lay on tho father's plate. "To out dear parents," was its only explana tion, but tho father and mother were not long in coining to tho knowledge that their Belf-denying children had beon saving tiieir hard-earned wages for this precioua gift. Tho man who had purchased thedear old home stead for lesa than a fourth of its val no had entered into obligations with Robert to transfer tho deed as soon as ho could repay tho money invested with simple interest. Katie's pictures had brought a handsome price, and this, added to Robert and Alice's sav ings, redeemed tho farm and tho team that their father loved next to hia children, besides purchasing a new, easy chair for each of the parents. Robort and his assistants had workecj hard to change tho old-fashioned, heavy furniture before the service clos ed in the old church. Tho old folks wero too glad to express their feelings, but thoy fully agreed, while the tean coursed down their cheeks, that this was tho best Tliasksgivmg that they had ever enjoyed. Christian Observ er. Tilings That ILiivo Hud Tlicli Day. Young ladies do not paint plaques and saucers as much as thoy used to. A well-informed observer saya re garding the once-fashionable crazei Like almost everything that is tlx rago for a season or two and become familiar and common, china painting has "had its day." Tho amateui artistic fancy now scorns to incline in two directions etching and drawing on wood and linen nnd painting on silk and on other rich stuffs. This form of decoration is greutly in vogue. Pen and ink and sepia sketches on lit tle wooden ornaments and on bits o.1 linen used as centres for chair "tidies" and for toilet tables aro favorito sub jects for ladies artistically inclined, Painting on silk und satin has almost entirely tuked tho place of painting on china, though tho painting continue; to engage tho attention of expert ama teurs. A good many people hav painted tho tiles for their own fire friucca and mantels. Ono gentlemnr ins succeeded in photographing fcouit members of his family und applying the photograph to tiles, which lie hat used ingeniously in home decoration. Tho canning industry is assuming enormous proportions. Maryland employs 00,000 persons in putting up canned goods, an industry in whick sho now leads all the StateH of Union, She supplies 80,000,000 cans of oysters Annually. Jn Hartford county alone 24,000,000 mm oi tomatoes und rj,uvv,wu cmm oi corn are prepared lor tlw market every year, and one firm at Jfmltrh-t City puts tin 2,500.000 om ol cork in a swiMon.
