biiio taking prizeo nt tho Sluto Fnir for
pickles and jullicH, rind ever so much
better looking, too, tliun Myra. No
yollow bangn over her eyes j Hho just
combed it back off her faco and did it
tip in a hard knot that staid. She sent
John a birthdny cako, and knit him a
comforter, and everybody thought it
would bo a match, but John said ho
didn't like her oyes ; tltoy wore hand
florao oyes, to my idea, and could look
you through and through, they were
that clear and bright ; but did you ever
know a man to tuko odvico? "Marry
that ferret," said John, " and novor hare
any penco of my life ; woll, I guons
not I " and with that o(T ho goon to town
and telegraphs back, "Expect me and
my wifo." Dear I audi a shock aa It
gave mo, and our spring cleaning not
dono, and the minister coming to board
with us while his wife went homo on a
visit it waa a trial, you may be suro I
And when Hho did como, it was more
like having a wax doll in tho way thnn
anything olso, with her big wondering
oyes, and childish ways, and silly ques
tions, and hanging 011 John's arm, and
leaning over John's chair, with two lit
tle insignificant feet in the rungs at the
bucls, oud her clutheB I Buch fallals,
just like a doll's rigging, and I just not
my foot down that if she was to live with
us. she. must conform to our ways. I
hadn't boon forty yearn iu this world for
nothing. If she wanted to wear lino
white luces and milled aprons, she had
to w.h nud iion them herself. I
wouldn't be her slave. And such silly
questions as sho asked, thoy just made
moVok : " When did tho cows shed
their horns ? Whiuh cow gavo tho but.
tormilk? Wore thoro uny dear little
yellow ohioks ?"
Dour little yellow ohioks, iudcodl
They wore dear enough before we raised
them and got thoir hoods off and wo had
thorn ready for market, and if that silly
child didn't Hit down and cry becauso
thoy were killed ; said sho had named
every ono of them Mid watched them
grow up. And she was our John's
wife I bah!
Then sho did tho silliest thing of all
went snd bought a book called "What
I Know About Farming," and oaed to
ait out under a troo studying it by tho
hour; and one night, when she went
down to tho bars to moot John, I heard
"John, why don't you get a washing
maohiuo and a wringer, and save your
own flosh and blood. Look at tho blis
ters on my hands I"
And the next thing it waa the talk of
the neighborhood that wo Elliots, who
had set our (sees against modem im
provements, had given out before that
little palo-facod thing, and not only got
a wringer and washer in our kitchen,
but several hundred dollars' worth of
(arm machinery at work. John said he
could afford it, but I spoke my mind,
and told her what I thought of it after
ha ent out to ll! work. Hho looked
kind of frightened, and pretended she
waa going to cry, and then she spoke up
quick like and said;
"Sistor Jauot, it's a triumph of mind
over matter. You cuu wash now, and
not bo all tired out, and sink and nerv
ous, and ud John cau afford it."
Ferhapa it Iliad known that aho had
paid (or it all, oud it hadn't coat John a
cent, I might lmve. beou more forgiving,
but I just utruighteucd tip und said :
' Mrs. Elliot, you may go 011 aud ruin
your husband with your hoarding-school
ideas, but, ua fur me, I'll lioer touch
Die things. I cau work, tlmuk good-
ueaa, while I've got my health
brought up in idleness."
She never took it to heart a bit ; tho
next thing I know sho was at tho little
parlor organ sho had, tinging aud play
ing w if that wab all there was in life,
Aud that silly old uiluistor men never
do have a bit ol sense, but you expect

Hho laid hor lmnd on her heart, and
stood looking off with a strango ex

maybo sho was homesick, and I told hor
to go In and cut hoiiio carpat rag, nnd

it, sho up nnd refused.
"No," sho Haid, "I cannot cut any
enrpet rogs. I hnto them I "
I never saw her so excited before
"A fine temper jou have I" was all
tho answer I mndo her, hut I never felt
so insulted in all my life.
For n week or two I didn't seo much
of her ; sho was cithor out with John
" sketching," ns sho called it, dabbling
nwny nt sonio bits of p.istobonrd with a
lend pencil, or up In her room where I
never went. Hho rnmo down, singing
nwny, with n Inrgo pitckngn in her hand,
nnd soon John enmo up uith the ponies,
nnd thoy diovo off to town together,
laughing like two cliildien. I hope nono
ofthn neighbors noticed them. AnywnyJ
they never snw him conduct himself in
that wny with nit'.
"Wlion thoy enmo homo sho wns nil

thoy dumped down in tho entry.
"It's something for you, Janet," sho
said, laughing hyslerical-liko. "It's

" Myra," said I, " this is wicked ox
travoganco," for I know hor money was
all paid out.
"But it isn't," she said, laughing ; "I
earned it myself by drawing and paint
ing those bits of sketches. I sold thorn
all, and can sell nil I can do. That was
my way of cutting enrpet rngs."
Well, wo put tha carpet down, and it
did look pretty though I didn't say so.
It isn't my way to spoil anybody with
flattery, and I saw John's wifo was get
ting tho upper hand too fast. Tho neigh
bors were beginning to notice hor, nnd
that foolish old minister, when his wifo
enmo back, hud been over there ; and
she lod tho singing in church and pre
tended sho had got religion, and all the
timo the novor scrubbed a floor, or
washed a dish, or put her hands to tho
"John can afford to hire help," sho
said to mo ono day, "and I'm not very
strong, and my mothordiedof consump
tion." Then sho began to cry like a
baby, and John enmo iu aud looked at
me as if it was my doing.
I must sny sho could succeed in doing
all Borts of useless things raising flow
ers in cvory nook nnd corner, making
pots of all tho animals, and painting, or
playing on tho organ. Sho was real orna
mental, and I Biipposo some folks
thought sho was pretty. John did for
ono. I don't know that sho made me
much work either. She did her own
washing as long ns John would let her,
and kept her room neat enough, though
it waa mostly litterod up with flowers
and birds and hor skotches, and at
first sho sang from morning till night,
and sho did have a real lovely voioo.
I'll allow that, but after a while she
didn't sing aud didn't talk much, and
then John began taking her meals up
to her. The first time I saw him getting
a tray ready, I aaid :
" It'a a good thing you wero brought
np to be handy, John, seeing you've got
an invalid wife."
He didn't say anything then, but a
few days titer he came to me and aaid
" Janet, get a girl as soon aa you can,
and let Auut Betsy come over and stay
with Myra; aha is nervous and low
spirited, ami needs company."
"Well, Ibuppose you've guessed the
upshot of it all ; a little daughter waa
born to John, and it seeniod to me that
a miracle was worked in tho house. Per
bapa I had never really loved John's
wife she waa ao different in her ways
from me but when I heard that baby
cry, I felt thrilled to my very soul, and
I just threw my work-apron over say

that ahe mustn't favor herself that way
that ahe couldu't lie abed and let stran

she'd never get strong till alie'd got out,
but I made up my mind to speak in a
geutler sort of way. I had lieen think
ing it over and ahout concluded to let
Myra live her own way aud not try to

seemed bo well satutled with hr, and I
went up-stairs and opened the door

A TEI.KIIIIAVH STOltr.
Mr. W. S. Johnson, tho author of
"Telegraph Tales," is responsible for
llio following story: "In tho winter of
1870-71, one of tho operators in tho
Western Union oillco at Boston had an
epileptic fit. His medical attendant
siioko to him, chafed him, and mndo
overy effort to arouso him, but in vain.
Subsequently ono of his fellow operators
drew n ehnir up to the bed and took the
puticnt's hand in his. As he did so ho
noticed n feeble pressure by the fingers,
which pressure presently resoljed itsolf
into dots and dnshen, faintly communi
cating to the tactile sense tho words,
'W-h-a-td-o-c-t-o-rs-a-y a-b-o-u-t m-o?'
Asked whether he could hear wlint wns
said to him, the patient signified assent
by a slight motion with the tips of his
lingers, and tho result was th.it his fol
low operator got fiom tho putient enough
dots aud dashes to describe his feelings
to the phyBicinn, who was thus enabled
to apply the necessary remedies. It is
certain that no other method of commu
nicating was possiblo under the circum
stances, sinco tho sufferer from epilepsy,
although he could hear, could neither
speak nor move any of his muscles, ex
cept thuee situated in tha digital extrem
ities, and those ouly with the faintest
requisite in electric communication."
A CKXTIFKDK O.V HUB BED."
Two residents of Sacramento, Cal.,
were startled one night by screams
proceeding from a room occupied by
a lady member of the family. In
quiry elicited the information that
"there was a centipede on her bed."
The gus was at tho time turned down
very low, but the men could see the in
sect on the bed, and, doubling a towel
several times, one of thorn cast it over
tho centipede, and clutched it tightly to
provent its escape One of the gentle
men was somewhat of an amateur scien
tist, and desired ardently to presorve tho
centipede as a specimen. Accordingly
tho captured insect wns carried in tho
towel to the drug store. The druggist
ponred chloroform on the towel to
stupefy the creature, and to prevent the
possibility of its escape, and ono of the
clerka stood by with an uplifted club to
strike it should it attempt to get off.
The towel was opened, and tho expec
tant lookers on were astonished to fini
that all tho fuss had been made over a
little strip of calico.
A woman iu Pottsville, Pa., went to
her shed to get wood. Sho came across
a piece ot hemlock wood two inches in
diameter and a foot in length, well
adapted for firewood, which she split in
two, and discovered that it had been
bored with an auger from one end to the
other, the hollow ot which was filled
with three minnie balls, and muslin car
tridges, such as were used in tho old
muzzlo-loading rifles, each cartridge
being wrapped in a piece of newspaper.
The open end of the machiue was then
plugged up and carelessly daubed with
mud. The person whoa malice con
ceived the death-dealing machine threw
it from an alley back ol tha house into
the coal-bln. where it waa found.

14. Send all letters, newspapers and small parcels to
the post-office. As a rule, they will go safer and reach
