Some hours elapsed before Lady
Denboigh was sufficiently composed to
listen to a recital of the events that had
trans}-ired since Aiisie's abduction.
The;j .\Iiles told her how he had gone
west with the baby, where, after a sharp
struggle with poverty, he finally obtained
employment, and from that time
onward had been what the world terms
a successful man. How, while amassing
wealth, he had striven to cultivate
his mind. He was now a rich man.

occurred upon the arrival at

THE VARIETIES OF LAUGHTER.
From the He-He higgle to the Thousand-Acre-(JnlTaw.
rRnrAMTT* "Eao'TA 1
There is the hearty laugh, the convulsive
laugh, the he-he laugh, and the
laugh. There was the laugh of
Prince Hal, who was said to laugh "till
his face is like a wet cloak?ill, laid up."
There is the incipient laugh, -which is
not a laugh but a smile, The late
Charles Backus, the minstrel,who,it will

was once having his photograph taken.
The operator told him to look pleasant,
to smile a little. The famous minstrel
gave an elaborate smile. "Oh, that
mil never do!" said the photographer,
it's too -wide for the instrument.
Speaking of a -western actress the reporter
-wrote: "Her smile opened out
like the Yosemite valley in a May morning."
When Miss Marie Wilton, the
English actress, played Hester Graze
brook in the "Unequal Match," iier
laugh was said to be of the character
that first as it were looks out of the
eyes to see if the coast was clear, then
steals down into a pretty dimple of the
cheek and rides there in an eddy for
the while; then waltzes at the corners
of the mouth like a thing of life; then
bursts its bonds of beauty and fills the
air for a moment -with a shower of
silver-tongued echoes and then steali
back to its lair in the heart to watch
again for its prey." How different from
the kind of laugh of Prince Hoare, a
_friendof Hayden, the painter. This
gentleman was a delicate, feeble-looking
man, with a timid expression of face,
and when he laughed heartily he almost
seemed to be crying.
It runs in families sometimes to distort
the countenance in laughter. Mr.
Labouchei j speaks of a family who
laugh a great deal, and who always

funny at the dinner table, when something
witty is said to look around and
see the same distortion of every face.
There is not an eye left in the family.
A trio of sisters is spoken of who show
half an inch of pale pink gums when
they langh. In their presence, like
Wendell Holmes, one "never dar^s to
be as funny as one can," for fear of seeing
their applauding triple of gums.
A laugh is sometimes only a sneer.
Diogenes, of tub notoriety, saw a good
deal of this iind of laughter. Some one
said to him, " Many people laugh at
you." " But I," he quickly remarked,
" am not. laughed down."
Tbe Success of Ci?-Operative Societies.
[Demorest'a Monthly J
in thia country, cooperative societies
have been a failure. Indeed they can*
not be said to have succeeded anywhere
except in England, and there only in
one kind of business, to-wil, in stores
for distributing goods at a small advance
over cost price. All attempts in
the way of co-operative production?
that is, in the manufacture of goods?
have been almost total failures. Of
""titco ^Amnfim'pq an/3 ftfiroorations
, have succeeded in transacting business,
but we are speaking now of the cooperation
of working-people, so as to
secure all the profits from : their own
labor. The co-operative stores of
England, however, have been wonderfully
prosperous. At the -close of 1881
there were 1,189 distributive societies
in successful operation. These had
573,000 members. The share capital
was nearly $29,000,000 and the yearly
sales were over $100,000,000. The
saving in profits was about 10 per cent,
The two largest co-<Jperative societies
in England are the Civil Service Supply
association and*the Army and Navy Cooperative
society. This last society
employs 3,500 men and 200 women. It
has been so popular tiiat it has begun
manufacturing articles for sale. The
secret of the success of distributive cooperation
is because everything is done
for cash. The stores of England previously
gave unlimited credit, and consequently
made many bad debts, and
thus were forced to put high charges
on all their goods to make a living
profit. The co-operative societies inwftT??v.

debts, and thus had an advantage over
the old-fashioned store. Doubtless the
reason why co-operation has failed in
this country is because of the one price
and cash system introduced originally
into the dry goods trade by the late A.
T. Steward Seliingcheaper,and being
, content with small profits, he ruined
his competitors in trade, and by the
magnitude of his transactions acquired
. a vast fortune. It is the cash system in
the stores of our large cities which has
prevented the growth of co-operative

evening as I passed the tithing yard in
company with Pauline, we heard the
low hum of voices. I was resolved to
see and know it all, so I stepped into a
neighboring store?it happened to be a
Gentile establishment?and I inquired
what it all meant.
"Oh," said the proprietor, "you ladies
don't want to go in there. The emigrants
are quartered there?those that

are to be sent out into the surrounding
country to-morrow. You know this is
the distributing point. You would be
shocked by the exhibition."
"Is it safe ?" X inquired.
uO, yes, it's safe, but not at all pleasant."
We followed the crowd, and stole inside
the yard, each holding close to the
- 1-> n rvi o -n 44nr 9 Thfi
uuitur. j. mi uw^ii*3o uuuiwuavj ???
term tenth-class humanity would hardly
express the chasm -which exists between
them and our own native lower classes.
The yard was crowded-with Europe's
refuse. The night was pleasant or the
crowd must have suffered sorely for
lack of shelter. Scattered about the
inclosure were the granaries and sheds
where loyal Mormons pay their "tenth"
annually. Men, women and children
were scattered everywhere, and gave out
the impression that they were' thoroughly
wretched. Some, too tired to
stand, had sunk down, and were snoring
in the dirt. There was no illumination
in tii a vq.ivi savp. that contributed bv the
pitying moon. The confusion was extreme.
Women were wandering around,
as if in doubt, but the sluggish, unintelligent
expressions on their faces told
that they were without ambition or culture.
But there was another element in the
crowd, which. I have not alluded to.
They were the Mormons who had come
to this stamping-ground to secure domestic
help for a mere pittance. The
wives were in tne yara omce proper,
which we had not yet entered, sampling
the foreign goods there at their disposal.
Some of the Mormons were profane,
and I could hear them swearing
because all the best girls had been
picked out in advance by the missionaries,
who had been hired to make
such selections. Then, too, many citizens
of Salt Lake City had gone north
to Ogden, and there secured kitchen
help?and prospective wives?for themselves.
We entered the two-story rambling
pile in the centre of the yard, and here
the supreme vision of squalor greeted
us. Each room contained as furniture
I a small plain table, witk a tin pail
I filled with drinking: water on its top, a
smoking lantern tied to the centre ol
thp ceiling, and one or two rude benches.
Eere the people were stretching their
weary limbs, either on the bare floor or
on such blankets as they had brought
with them from the old country. Women
were seated on the floor rocking back
and forth, and moaning from the fa

were sprawled about in tne rutn 01
their ragged garments and the dirty
boards. I saw one old man, not less
than 60 years of age, I should judge,
who sat in abject misery on a bench,
with his elbows on his knees and -hia
chin in his hands. I approached him
and found that he was from Wales.
"Oh, why did an old man like mo

most of the pilgrims did not speak
English at all.
The windows -were partially down,
but the odor was terrible, nevertheless.
Tin pails filled with frowy butter and
moldy bread that had evidently traveled
thousands of miles, gave forth a
sickening smell. No one was in attendance,
apparently, to order things.
Thoroughly satisfied, we hurried out
of the pen, and, walking further up the
avenue, crossed over to the Amelia palace,
the luxurious home of President
John Taylor. Yerily, here was
a contrast. Fountains were playing
in the yard. Winding
paths led throngh the velvety
sod and among the beautiful flowerbeds.
Ringing the door-bell, we were
ushered into a magnificent drawingroom,
and there awaited the coming of
one of the most powerful sovereigns in
the world. President Taylor's house is
one of the best furnished in the United
States. Our feet dented thick plush
carpets. On the walls hung choice oil

in massive gilt frames. Elegant chandeliers

[St. Paul Pioneer Press.]
An old story and a good one can b
told of Sheahan. He was a fresh lientenant
in command of raw recruits al
Fort Bidgelv when that post was besieged
by the Sioux in 1862. Capt.
Marsh, his superior, was slain with a
. score of men while on the way from the
fort to the relief of the' Lower agency.
Lieut. Sheahan announced the death oi
Capt. Marsh at parade on the day the
news rcached the fort. "Now," said he,
when the sad fact -was duly stated, "lei
us give three groans for the brave
dead!" Victory would have called for
cheers. Death, to Mr. Sheahan's
Hibernian mind, deserved groans. The
whole company under his Bashan-like
lead, gave three such howls as wonld
have lifted the hair on the heads of
Capt. Marsh and his brave men, had
any been left there by their slayers.

The most prominent object in the
District of Columbia, from every point
of view, is the Washington raontHnent, "
which has gone skyward at a great rate
since spring, and stands now as the
ugliest thing for ihs money human ,
hands could design. This exaggerated
chimney of white marble, rearing itself
solitary on the banks of the Potomac; :
yesterday attained a height of 406 feet,
and when the work; ceases for the
season at the end of -this week the last
course of stone will be 410 feet above the
ground. Since congress took the
unfinished shaft in hand and raised it
by annual appropriations to its present
height the monument has been steadily
becoming an object of greater interest
to sight-seers, and groups of them visit
it every day in the year. . t

that of surpassing and unnecessary

no symbol, and stands for nothing
but so much stone and m3rble, -and
careful workmanship virtually thrown
into the air. With neither utility or
beauty to rc commend it, it fails to
impress one with any character or exi
pression of its own. The spire of the
Strasburg cathedral, to rival which iu
height seemed the sole object of build- .
! ing this monument to the proposed
level, has a certain majesty and impressiveness
to it. The auv spire that bears
the holy cross and the cbime of bells
has some rational excuse for being, and
the great cathedral walk at its base ,

i Thackeray's Martyrdom.
: ["Cornwall" in Inter Ocean.]
I am only permitted to tell one incident
out of the many that have been related
to me. The best years of Thackeray's
life were given to the affectionate
care of his insane wife. Her disease
was that of a violent type, except at in
tervais, one sne required constant oversight
and attendance. To secure this
Thackeray bought- a house in the conntry
near London, in which the invalid
was surrounded with every comfort that
love and sympathy could devise. As
she still craved his presence and"
? seemed unhappy when he was out of
her sight, Thackeray made frequent :
visits ' to her in her retirei
ment. These -were the hours .
which his enemies declared -were
spent in the midst of all kinds of follies
and excesses. They were devoted ini
stead to soothing the invalid repining*
and quieting the unreasonable suspicions
of a wife dearly beloved but
hopelessly insane. In one of his unpublished
letters he relates without
' complaint, but in a strain of heart
broken resignation, that sometimes
1 his wife could only be appeased in her
insane moments by being permitted to
beat him with her naked fists. This he
endured shnt up with her for hours, or
nntil the violence of her. passion had
. passed, when he would emerge from,
her rooms looking like one * "-who-, has
died once and comes unwillingly back
again to a hateful -existence." It is not
i to be wondered at that Thackeray's
i views of life were tinged with a' proi

Tlia ckrrf. /?AlIftr nriofnniWi -in fraud
and hypocrisy. In the days when men
first wore linen it came to be fashion to
leave more or less of that linen exposed
at the neck to prove the cleanliness of
that tmdeijieaih. This naturally took
the form of the collar. Then a genius
canght on .to the idea of cutting out a
separate piece of linen in the shape of
j the overhanging part and affixing it to
I the top of the shirt. These bits of linen
| could be put on clean every day, thus
giving the public the impression that
they represented the cleanliness of the
unseen garment to wl ""*> they were attached.
They were i) *ct fraudulent
certificates of such cleanliness. Hence,
the collar is but a base subterf?^t
ancient origin. It is as the gold wash
\ on the pinchbeck jewelry, the rouge on
" a flearl r.orrmlexion. or the voluotuous
i outline of a new pair of corsets? The
collar is a useful aid to the cravat in
strangling the neck and making it unduly
sensitive to cold. The collar did
not attain its perfection of fraudulency
and the height of its iniquitous hypocrisy
until starch was invented to gloss and '
stiffen it. When this happened mankind
forgot that it was a cheat. The collar ia
an unmitigated nuisance in tot weather,
and of very little protection in cold. It is
