now it weighs nearly 100 poinds. The
stone has ben kept at the door all these
years, either on the stone step or on the

and very smooth, with the exception of
two small dents on the side it rests on.
The grain of the stone is very fine. It
emits a hollow sound when rolled on the

pressed painfully upon my mind the
picture of a young married friend,
fragile in appearance, and, in truth,
whose life was worn to a thread by her
arch-foe Chist. She was the mistress
of a large house, entirely furnished as
to floors, mantels and wainscoting in
polished antique oak. She kept two
ei"vants, but the parlormaid had time
to dust the house only once per diem.
The remainder of the time the so-called
mistress undertook to keep things
clean. My most vivid recollection of
her is as she appeared two-thirds of the
time, wrorn and weary, with a dust
cloth in her hand. She used to say,
half laughing, half sorrowfully, that a
fit legend for her tombstone would be:

TKE WEDDING CAKE.
Erlutlon of an Old Ettgllsh Cnrtoa
Cheater's Famous Plum Xioave.
When the fashionable maiden of an
cient Home was married she carried off
in her hand three ears of wheat, while
over her head was broken a simple cak
as an emblem of plenty. From this grew
the elaborately-iced cakes which are
seenon tho tables where wedding break
feasts are served nowadays.
The early English bride wore a wed
ding wreath of ears of wheat, some
t "ies gilded, ond showers of grain were
thrown over her and afterward picked
jijp and eaten by the guests. This is the
germ of the rice-throwing custom. In
time tho grain was ground and made
'up into thin cakes, which were shat
tered over the bride's head and dis
tributed among the bystanders,
j It is said that the old-fashioned bis
cuit or eracker was seen at wedding
breakfasts in England as late as the
18th century, but the popular faor
turned to little rectangular buns oi
flour, sugar, eggs and spices. These
were in vogue when Elizabeth was on
the throne, and hundreds of them were
eaten at the -wedding banquets, flung to

John Evelyn, writing of his j-outhful
days, says: "When I was a little boy I
have seen, according to the custom
then, the bride and groom, kick over a
ctack of small cakes at the dinner."
When blocks of cakes enriched with
almond paste were thus piled together
it was a small step to a single 6oliJ
mass. This did noi come to txiss till
after the commonwealth had waned.
The French cooks who came over in
the 17th century did much to improve
and refine the coarse, hearty English
taste. They introduced the pretty, or
namental icings. Even after solid calces
wero introduced it was considered so
important that the cake hhould be
broken over the bride's head that
parents often ordered two one for that
purpose and the other for the table.

DISPOSITION OF WEALTH.
The Natural gerUng of Distrust for TXom
Elcher Than OanelTes.
There is a natural feeling of distrnsl
and even disapproval of wealth, es
pecially on the part of those who have
never possessed it. It is natural alsc
that this should be a sliding scale, and
that each person should regard the next
largest taxpayer as too rich. Thirtj
vears ago, at the seaside resort called
Pigeon Cove or Cape Ann, there was 3
village wit known habitually as Old
Knowlton, a retired fisherman, who de
lighted to corner in argument a set ol
eminent clergymen who then resorted
there, as Dr. Chapin, Dr. Gannett, Dr.
Eartol, Thomas Starr King and others.
He liked to swear before them, to ash
hard questions out of the Old Testameni
and to call them familiarly by their lasl
names. One day he was much startled
on asking about Dr. Gannett's salary to
hear that it was $3,000, which would
not now be regarded as a large sum.
but seemed to him. enormous. "Why,
Gannett," said the licensed veteran,
'Awhat can a minister do with so much
money? You can't lenow how to man
age it! Gannett, you ought to hae a
No doubt we are all ready, if we per
sonally escape wealth, to offer advi
,as to its guardianship, but probably the
nearer we came to it the greater diffi
culty of deciding how to handle it
There is nothing new in ihe phenom
enon, except in its lately rapid increase
among ourselves. Even now it is said
that no American man is so rich as
-m,m. k io WAnitf,v n,o., n n
ganize piratical expeditions into to
states; and, it is predicted, to be ele-l
vated to the peerage of England, even
where they have failed. No American
family is so rich as the Eothschilds,
whose nest is still shown or was till
lately a tottering and shabby house
in the Jewish quarter of Frankfort,
Matthew Arnold, who shook his head
over the comparatively modern displays
of wealth in this country, gloats with
delight, in two letters, over the lux
urious living of the English Eoths
childs. An aristocracy of wealth, how
ever, can never really stand on the same
ground as one of birth, or be as danger
ous to real freedom; because, no mat
ter how curious people may be about it,
or how envious of It, or how much they
may truckle to it, there can never be felt
toward it that honesty time-hardened,
utterly cringing deference with which
even the average English radical bows
down before a lord, liut we all like to
philosophize about it and give advice
and all the more the less we share of it;
just as it was said of Cardinal de Itetz,
that he made up for an titter neglect of
his own soul by exercising an abundant
supervision over the souls of other peo
ple. Harper's Bazar.
Are In I"orce In tho Old People's Homes
Some of the old people that have
clothes of their own orhuve friends will
ing to provide them with clothes, wear
them, whilo the less fortunate are sup
plied by the poor law department with
.what they require. In the latter case,
Jthc dress, though as plain as possible,
is warm and comfortable, and of the
kind worn by the artisan class, of gray
or brown homespun, or dark-colored
serge. It is not uniform; indeed, as
it is mad in the building, it is exceed
ingly probable that they who wear it
at least if they be women have a
voice in deciding its fashion. With the
exception of tho invalids, all are re
quired to keep their clothes in good re
pair and to pay a certain amount of
attention to their own personal appear
ance. These ore points which, es
pecially in Vienna, are strongly insisted
upon; for the city does not choose to
have its old pensioners gohsg about
tdirty or in rags. The hall porter has
strict orderb to allow no one to go out
until he .has "tidied up;" and this reg
vlation is warmly approved by a ma
jority of the inmates. To an out
sider it certainly seems superfluous, for
most of the old people are the very pic
ture of neatness. Thej' all appear to
have a good supply of clothes. One of
the inmates of the Prague home in
fisted on showing me his wardrobe.
In addition to the rough gray suit ho
w as wearing, he had a pair of dark trou
sers and waistcoat, a black coat, and a
long blue overcoat, all in thoroughly
good condition. He had, too, under his
care, a silk gown, which he displayed
with infinite pride. It was his wife's
wedding dress, he told me. His wife,
who lives in another wing of the build
ing, had, it seems, handed it over to
him for greater safety. "She always
