A Danbury young man avo was
(im-c a clerk, lately went on a farm
to Avork. The first night in his iicav
position he was detailed to remove a
calf from the apartment of its parent
to a shed, and while engaged, as
thousands have been before him, in
shoving the contrary beast along,
the mother reached under the tails
of his coat with her horns, and sud
denly lifted him up .against the roof
of the building with a force that
threatened to shatter every bono, in
his body. The first thing he did on
returning to earth was to rub him
self, the m xt thing was to iliroAv up
his place. He said he didn't doubt
that agriculture Avas a noble pursuit,
and that the f .r.ncr needed an assist
ant in the discharge of the multifari
ous duties, .but he didn't lelieAe the
Creator designed him for making
skylights in cow-sheds.
Marrying; Karl v.
iiy i:ev. henry w.u:r beizchek.
"When, men and women are of a
marriageable ago, "I think it to be,
in general, true, that it is wholesome
for them to be married. It is not
necessary that they should remain
single because they stand in poverty;
for two can Hac cheaper than one,
if they live with discretion, if they
live with co-operative zeal, if they
live all they ought to live. If the
young man is willing to seem poor
when he is poor; If the young woman,
being poor, is willing to live poorly;
If they' arc willing to plant their
liAes together like iavo seeds, and
Avait for their groAvth, and look for
their abundance by and by, when
they have fairly earned it, then it is
a good thing for them to come carly
iuto this partnership. For char
acters adapt themselves to each other
in the early periods of life far more
easily than they do afterwards.
They who marry early are like
vines growing together, and twining
round and ro mil t ac'i otl er; where
as, multitudes of those who marry
late in life stand side by s.ide like
two iron columns, Avhich, being sep
...rated at the beginning, novtr come
any nearer to each oilier. Many
young men feel that they cannot
marry until they can support a wife;
ami ly that they mean until they
can support a house; yea, until they
can live in a house that bonis them;
until they can make a uhow: until
they can live as their kind of people,
the class to which they belong, live
for everybody belongs to a class,
a set. When they can do these tilings
they Avill marry, but not before.
And the result is that they are cor
rupting life in the very fountain.
An I when they marry, they make a
great mistake if they say, "Wo will
not undertake to keep house; let us
board. Then we can have all the
comforts of life; wo will have all the
appliances provided for us; and we
shall be relieved from a thousand
There is no school which Cod

and re iponsibility and labor in the

young woman, marrying, no matter
from what source they came together,
no m.tter how hiuh their fathers
have s ood, one of the most Avhole
so:ne t tings that they can do. having
married for love, and Avith discretion,
is to 1 : Avilling to begin at t.'ie bot

hold life so that they shall have its
ed 1 '.it ion.
I tell you there are pleasures
Avhie'i many young married people
miss. I Avould not give up the iirst
tvt .cars of my married life for all
I have now. I live in a big house,
with a brown stone front, and very
fairly furnished; but, after all.

The Editor's Scientific Record in
Inny er's April Number of the Maga
zine, gives the following information
for Chignon weavers:
The I'riHsJi JSL-'liviiI .7ornl pub
lishes an abstract of an article by
Dr. Ijindeman upon the parasite
bodies ry iri;d,) found in the
false hair and chignons usually worn
by ladies. Those grow at the ex
tremities of the hair, and form little
lumps, visible to the naked eye.
Kaeh of these lumps represent:; a
colony of about ii ft v psorosi terms,
which are originally spherical, but
become flattened and discoid by re
ciprocal pressure. Under the influ
ence of heat and moisturethese swell,
and the gangular contents are con
verted into little spheres, and tbe-n
into pscudonavieelhe, Avhich are little
corpuscles having a persistent ex
ternal membrane, and inclosing one
or two nuclei. These become free,
and tloat in the air and ponet'a'e in
to the interior of the humane organ
ism, reaching the cireulata -y appa
ratus, and according to the doctor,
producing various meladies, not the
lea.-t of which are affections of the
heart, Dright's disease, and pulmon
ary complaints. Dr. Lindeman re
marks, with the exactness of the
mathematician, that in a ball-room
containing fifty ladies forty-live mil
lions of ii;ia icelhe are sot free, and
ho urges the propriety of abolishing
false hair on this account.
A Oeokoia colored lvooum discuss
ed the question: "Which is the
most useful ; j taper or gun-poAvder?"
The debate was closed by a disputant,
who spoke as follows:
"Mr. President 'Spose dar Avar

COURTESY OF BANCROFT LIBRARY,
MRS. liArCHITON'S ;Ilib.
1 Dear me
aid ifrs. Ilaughton,
as sho bent over a great kettle of
simmering quinces, I don't kiioav
what we are to do.
I can't got such
a girl as 1 want for any wages
there is every tiling to be done.
Just like Papa, said Fannie, work
ing away at a mass of paste that was
to appear later in the shape of pies.
I don't suppose Papa even remem
bered that wo had no girl when ho
invited Air. Austin and his cousin."
If it Avere only gentlemen, I should
not care, but there is a Mrs. Austin.
Fact my dear. Of course your
papa forgot to mention it until" just
as he Avas starting for the city this
morning, and they will all come Avith
him this evening. I ha'e sent Daisy
to put the spare room in order, but
you know how it will look.
She Avill make up the bed on the
the floor and put the toilet,
service on n. chair, laughed Fannie.
I'll try and get a peep at it. Mamma,
here comes Uessie Turner.
She Aill have to come in here.
Tiie visitor, advancing up the gar
den walk, did not wait for an i?ivita
tion to the kitchen, but came direct
ly to the half-opened door. She Avas
a small, pretty girl of about twenty
two, with a marked air of refinement
in her sweet face and the graceful
carriage of her slight ligure.
Tavo years ago she had driven to
call upon Mrs. Ilaughton in her own
carriage, but her father's sudden
death had revealed the fact that he
was deeply in debt, and had left no
fortune to his only child. Since that
time 1 Jessie had been teaching' in the
seminary at 11 , but on th day
Fannie Ilaughton suav her from the
kitchen AvindoAv, it was certainly
school hours. Her knock avus aii

Mrs. Ilaughton, she said, soon af
ter greeting had been exchanged, I
heard you wanted a girl.
I do indeed. Do yon knoAA- of a
Will you take mc?
Jiessie! cried both ladies.
I must do something for a living
and Dr. Will shas 1 must neither sew
or teach next winter, if I want to

of recovering from the trouble in

Uut avo are expecting company to

I'll a'. low you to have company
somoiimos, Avas the gracious rcplv.
Now Miss Ilaughton, I'll lir.i-h the
pies, and Bessie took a large apron
from her pocket, tied it over her
black dress, remoAcd her culls, roll
ed ui her sh oves, and took posses
sion of the pie board.
See what Daisy is doing, Fannie,
said her mother; and Fannie went
A: soon as sho was gone Mrs.
Ilaughton. taking Bessie's face in her
kind motherly hands, kissed it softly.
Darling, she said, this must not
be. I love you, Bessie, as one of
my OAvn girls and you must come
and let '11s nurse vim Avell again.
Y'on shall be my gvest this winter.
Yoa are very kind, the girl replied,
but von must 'let me have my own
wav I do not need nursing, only,
rest from constant talking to pupils,
and active exercise. I told Dr. Will
what I meant to do, and he said it
w;is the best medicine in the world
Onite a long talk followed, but
Mrs. Haughton v,as obliged to viol 1
her point. Bessie Ai;ts resolA'cd to
be indei'endent. and saA- no disgrace
in honestlv getting her living in a
friend's kitchen. That sho had been
a good house-keeper in her father's
lifetime, all B knew wt 11. and
finally her new mistress was persuad
ed to'give her the order for the com
pany dinner, and leave the kitchen
to its new occupant.
But Avhen the girl was realy alone,
sho certainly acted very strangely,
considering her late resolutions.
Just as Mrs. Haughton had left her,
she had said:
We expect Mr. and Mrs. Austin
and their cousin, a Mr. Alexander
Wight, lately returned from Califor
nia. Then she left the kitchen and Bes
sie dashed into the buttery and sat
down behind the door.
O. why didn't I wait? she said, in
a half whisper. Aleck Wight at
home! What Avill he think to see mo :
a servant girl? It was bad enough j
to be teaching for a living, but to bo 1
cooking for a living! O. Why didn't j
I wait? Wait for what? I am only '
earning my bread. Aleck Wight is j
nothing to mo, she said again, in ,
stern sei f -reproach ; probably he has j
forgotten my existence. " j
But even as she spoke there arose ;
in her memory a picture she would
never forget. In a conservatory !
where tinkling fountains cooled the
air for choice exotics, a la ly stood'
beside a tall, fine looking man; who
held her little gloved hand fat in '
j his OAvn. P.oth were in rich evening
j dress, and the house was full of gav
guests, Air. lurner having accepted
an. invitation to a friend's party in
one of the Fifth Avenue palaces. It
was the second winter ho had spoilt
in New York with P.ossie, and the
last winter of his life, lint the
couple in the conservatory were not
tiunking 01 ileath or
the gentleman spoke
in a Icav, ear-
"He never looked at mo to-night,"
she said to herself ; "but he must see
my face some time if he is to stay
hero a week.
Just at that moment the odor of a
cigar came iioating in at the summer
house door, and before lessie could
escape, a masculine cigar-holder fol
lowed the '-Havana'. She had start

shone full on her face, as Aleck Wight

Two v.'tcks later he was gone, and
Bessie an or than. Years of struggle
for her had been years of success to
him. for his un.do Avas dead and had
left him a large property and pros
perous business. The pride inborn
in Bessie's nature had kept her from
telling her sad story to one who was
not formally engaged to her, and she
had learned to think of Aleck as only
a good friend. But to meet as she
must meet him in a foAv brief hours
was a sore strain upon her pride and
"But this won't got my dinner,"
she said, suddenly, as the little clock
on the kitchen mantel warned her
that time was flying. 'If I must be
a servant, I will be a good one.'
The afternoon train brought the
expected guests, ami Bessie,, peeping
from her kitchen curtain, saAv the
pretty little lady who had been her
hostess on the evening already men
tioned, and her gray-haired husband,
and a tall, broad-shouldered, lieavily
beardod young man, who was intro
duced to his hostess and very prcttv
daughteras 'my cousin. Mr. Wight.'
It was not the easiest work in the
world, after this, to AAait on the table,
and Mrs. Haughton stared . at the
demure little waitress, whoso perfect
ly cooked viands she was dispensing.
Bat nobody noticed her, and dinner
passed oil' very quietly, the new ar
rivals being full of city gossip for
their country friends.
As the "girl" stoo l over the dish
pan into which two scalding tears
had fallen, she thought:
"Ho did not even recognize mo."
O, Bessie! Bessie! have you for

In the drawing room was music
and laughter, in the kitchen tears
and sighs when Mrs. Ilaughton came
out to Bessie.
"Bessie, dear, said she. leave the
dishes and come into the parlor.'
'I'm too tired and hot, 1
'It will vest von."
But it is best not. I cant be ser

Don't think 1 am ungrateful, but it
is better for me too keep in mv place.
"I think so, too" said the lady,
"but I do not think we quite agreo
as to which is your pW-e. However,
you shall have your own way to

And the lady returned to her
guests while Bessie washed and wip
ed plates, cups and dishes, and put
all in order. When the last dish
Aas in in its place, the last crimh
sAvept up, the young girl threw off
her apron and went into the garden
to try to throw oil' the feverish heat
burning in her veins.
"I wonder if F am strong enough
to go through with it?" she thought
as she seated herself in the summer
house, and it was not altogether of
physical strength sho was so doubtful.
It is now pretty generally Conced
ed that the pork paeking in the West
this season Avill aggregate al ior. t oOO
000 head of hogs more tiian last sea
son, and tiie average weight will be
about five pounds per headlie.ivier.
If this should prove to be an accu
rate estimate, the West a- i i havo

lard more than last your. Tiie east
ern markets have taken more hcgi
from tiie West this season than ld.it,
and the packing there will be increas
el to a moderate extent; but it would
p.-ohably be safe to assume that the'
increase in the packing in the East
will not exceed the natural increase
in the domestic consumption of the
country, and thus it Avill be seen that
the surplus over last year for which
a market is wanted is the increase iu
the packing in the West. To foreign
countries we must look for such a
market. It Avill be remembered by
iluse familiar Avith the trade last ye.4r
that the unprecedented! v large tx-
ports were looked upon, early in tht
season, as an indication that the mar
ket would be over stocked and that
would eea-e Avhen the summer came;
but the ability of the European
countries to consume Ioav provisions
Avas under estimated and the exports
kept well all through the season,
nolAvithstanding the material ad
varices in prices which occurcd in
the summer; so that, although the.
exports so far this season show a r.tt-t.-.
id increase ovortlie eOi.ei.tnl
