Mr. and Mrs. Dexter bezan to live with a fortune
thev had enc of the finest houses in tcrvvn, and, of
eonre'e, it was in the most fashionable quarter, and
fa- irshed with all the eleirance and luxury which
-.ninister to taste and comfort. In short, they had a
ir.cit house, a great deal of furniture, a great many
ervants, and a great many clothes. They had line
h.Tes and fine carriages, a fine conservatory and hue
" lures, and were, iiTall respects, fine people. Ihey
i . e splendid entertainments ; had traveled at homo
hw abroad ; jrae and revived presents ; visited all
the fashionable resorts in the summer, and in winter
made life one round of what is termed pleasure. Mrs.
Dexter was a beautiful and accomplished woman, and
Jived as she had been educated to live, and as she
i-upp' sod was proper for a wofnan of her position and
f.irtnTie to live. Her baby was in the nursery well
v-;trt-d for, &he knew : and vet it caused her not a lit
tie anxiety that she was unable to see it oftener tnan
once or twice a dav her cnirazcments were so nu-
mevous they would net allow it.
Busy, and weary, and worn were they ; neither
h ippy themselves nor causing happiness to others.
Th-y were, of course, a good deal envied and disliked,
and suffered not a little from unfricndlT suspicions.
It is one of the penalties of prosperity that it enables
even our Lest friends to see ail the littb defects of our
character, and sometimes to imagine faults and fail
ings of which, in reality, we are guiltless.
" AVhy is it that we are so lored to death?" said
Mr. and Mrs. Dexter. 44 Nothing seems fresh or
pleasant ; and surely we ought to bo happy if any
body is we possess largely the means of happincs."
o the' turned and overturned their affairs ;
counted the rooms of their house, the number of their
wardrobes, and scrutinized their furniture ; but they
were only more and more puzzled. In all the list of
their fashionable acquaintances they could think of
but one family who had ampler means or lived more
stylish than themselves. They had once or twice
seen a finer coach than their own, though seldom more
splendid horses a few costlier entertainments thoy
had attended than they were able to give, but not
many ; and no lady wore finer jewels or brooches than
They were not admired much, it is true, and she
sometimes thought her taste in selecting must be at
fault ; but not so ; that Mrs. Dexter should wear silks
and diamonds was a matter of course ai;d so, of
course, they gave nobody cither pleasure or surprise,
and least of alWiimself.
Tire 1 dazing before them, and 'mirrors flashing be
hind, they sat in their fine house and. wondered why
they were not happy,- and concluded that they could
not be possessed of that amount of wealth that insured
happiness, for in no other way could they account for
the humdrum of life they lived.
They did not slc?p well at night why they could
not guess, unless it were the fault of their beds ; they
must have more luxurious ones, if in any part - of the
world they -were to be obtained. They had littleappc
tite ; the cook must be to blame ; they employ - an
other ; enterlainmeuts do not entertain them, and
visiting and visitors were alike th-esome. If they had
wealth enough to do just as they would like to do,
they would surely bailie the demon of ennui that so
tormented them now.
The chances of speculation. w ere turned over, and
Mr. Dexter was not long in selecting ono which he
thought promised well.- So sure were they of favora
ble results, that they concluded it would be foolish
ness to wait for the actual realization of the wealth
that was almost within their reach, and so at once
drew upon a visionary capital. To their surprise
happiness refused to come, despite their golden bid
ding. From their splendid entertainments they re
tired more wear3r than before, from their softer beds
ftivse move languid and listless, and in their dazzling
coach rode with no more ease and comfort that for
merly ; the French cooks failed to suit their.'appc
tites, and merchants and milliners were alike unsuc
cessful in their attempts to meet their wishes. At the
end of a year of most extravagant dissipation there
came a crash in the affairs of Mr. Dexter. From
heedlessness or mismanagement, or both, the late
venture proved an utter failure, and dragged after it
to ruin, cooks, coaches, and all.
" What can be done ?" said Mr. and Mrs. Dexter.
And, of coarse, the conclusion was any thing but
coming down. Truth must b smothered and credit
kept good. So thousands were borrowed, and sent
searching after the lost thousands, and for a while the
Dexters moved in splendor and gayety, and were, to
outward appearances, greatly to bo envied ; but in
their hearts they felt very much as if standing on dry
boards that for a moment suppressed the fires of an
" What shall we do ?" said both Mr. and Mrs. Dex
ter, when no money could be borrowed. They did not
know ; they only felt any thing, any thing but
What would all their fashionable friends say, and
how they would be avoided ! that was what they
dreaded more than any privation they would have to
They could devise no plan of action ; but in their
effort to keep up yet a little longer, there came a sea
son of dodging and hiding, of promising and postpo
ning, of evasion and of almost secret starvation.
They grew thin and haggard ; their fine clothes looked
like fine rags, or nearly so, and the pinch of penury
showed so ploinly on their faces that any further at
tempt at concealment was hopeless.
Poor Mrs. Dexter looked like a little white paper
woman, with a kind of smile painted on her lips, for
3ou might see plainly enough it did not spring ' from
her heart ; and it seemed that a breath of wind' would
drift her away as easily as the froth from a milk
pail. Haifa dozen scantily fed fires were burning in the
house, when Mrs. Dexter seated herself by one of them
m mute and hopeless despair. Night fell, and the
heavy curtains made it doubly night within the room.
The door opened stealthily, and her husband, like a
snow-drift, still and cold, came to her side.
4 My dear wife," he s?iid, presently, 44 I would not
mind this terrible calamity but for you." His voice
faltered, and he put his arm about her neck with a
tenderness of manner that she was not at all used to,
though he had always been kind and indulgent. Her
heart had never stirred as it then did when she heard
him say, " Here is a thousand dollars, my dear."
There actually came a faint color to her cheek, and a
real smile to the lip where the false one had been so
long. The happiness of that moment was worth all
the lest fortune. 44 My good, noble husband," she
caid, " you must not gutter on my account. I am
equal to any fortune as long as you love me ;" and
the hands she laid on his forehead were like a pleasant
healing dew, and her kiss on his cheek made him
richer than he had ever been.
The shell of a fortune in which they had been living
was broken, and they saw for the first time, that there
was a great world outside of it. The anticipated
misery of coming down lessened wonderfully when
they stood up and faced it.
All the fine furniture was slid, the French cooks
dismissed, dressing maids and chamber maids were
sent away Mrs. Dexter herself took charge of the
fcaby and half the housvvas let. One servant and
a small carriage were all the luxuries they reserved
All day after the coming down, Mr. Dexter kept
out of the house ; he could not bear to see his wife
uiprifeu ot the elegancies to which she had been used :

" Linprcrins raised his latch at eve,
' Thou-h tired in heart and limb ,
"Who loved no other place, and yet
Home was no home to him."
Two or three times he Dassed and ronnssorl Tiia
cloor without courage to enter ; but seeing one of his
longer menus approaching, he chose the
evils, aud went in. Aloncr the dark hall
stairs Jio groped his way ; opened the door of his
wifcs chamber, approached the bed. and. rvirtincr tha
curlains, passed his hand softly along it, for he ex- '
pectd to find his wife ill and weepinf ; he had found !
nc w uuuiy luuc, m consequence of the failing of
answ dress or so to come home at a certain hour.
She. was not there however, and. half nf,o,i ,i '
. i . , : cu i
iiau tjuc uume w uer mother, ho fPn.lvl o
little back room which was now parlor, sittin- room I
and all. Feeling for the latch of the door, he groaned
audibly, and as by magic, the door flew open, and h s
wife stood beside him, smiling and bright checked,
Ind whh suchlweet words of welcome as he had never
heard her speak till then. The baby sat crowing his
gladness in the cradle, and the fire threw its brigh.
Gleam over the pretty china of the table all was neat
and orderly, even tastefully arranged ; and as Mr.
Dexter looked around, he felt all the pride and happi
ness of a young husband on coming into his own
house for the first time.
To the plain, but good and sufficient srpper both
did ample justice ; the husband had not eaten the
accustomed luncheon that day, and the wife had been
busy and earned what she seldom ha.u before an
Tne next day came a trial some trifling articles
must be bought, and Mr. Dexter must drive the small
open carriage himself.
I will wear my mourning dress and veil," said
Mrs. Dexter, for she saw that her husband wts mor
tified for her sake ; so they set forth together. The sun
shone bridatlv, and the fresh air and various shows
of the streets and windows were so exhilarating in
their effect, that Mrs. Dexter threw back her veil,
quite regardless of the astonished looks of the ladies
she might meet. It was a new sensation of delight
to the husband to manage the horses, and botli felt
what superfluities coach and coachmen had been.
Affairs went on very well for a time ; they felt as if
rid of a great burden, and in earnest and hopeful
labor experienced no depression and no pain. But so
deeply involved were they that even another coming
down must bo made. Horses and carriages must be
sold, and themselves be left nothing in the world but
their hearts and hands.
" My dear, sweet wife, what can I siy to comfort
you ?" said Mr. Dexter, v.hen he had made a confes
sion of their extreme poverty. And he added, sighing
and sinking down helplessly, things could not be
T'orse than they are."
44 I am glad to hear it," slid Mrs. Dexter laughing
outright ; "for as nothing remains stationery in this
world, our affairs must grow better from neec sity."
"But my dear, what can we do?" sorrowfully
ejaculated the husband.
"Why," she replied, "begin to live independent
of burdens and restrictions. For my part I just begin
to foo something to live for."
And drawing the easy chair to the fire, and placing
the baby on his knee, she pvopot-d to make for her
husband a cup of tea and a piece of toast, in the lr)C
of reviving his spirits.
There was no bread nor tea m the house, and worse
than all, no money.
. " Surely then," said Mrs. Dexter, looking earn
estly in the sad face of her husband, "there is no
time to be lost ;" and putting on her shawl and bon
net she was presently gone from the house. When
she returned it was with a glow -on her edieek that
heightened her beauty fir more than paint and pow
der had ever done. She had been selling her dia
monds, and had brought home money enough to buy
a cottage and ten acres of land within a few miles of
the city where they had always lived.
A year went by,' and as Mr. Dexter looked about
liis neat, well-ordered house; as he sat before the
blazing hickory logs, a pitcher of milk and a basin of
shining apples" on the table beside him, and saw his
wife iu a pretty chintz, making the tea, and his boy,
bright-eyed and healthy, rocking himself in the cra
dle with" a look of pride that he was already able .to
do something for himself, lie was surprised at his own
happiness, and exclaimed, " lleally, my dear, I should
never have learned half your excellent qualities, and
consequently, never have loved you half so well, but
for our coming down."
" Coming down, indeed !" she replied, and putting
down the smoking tea-pot, she wiped the happy tears
from her eyes ; "Iwa.4,ncver to happy in my life.
It is as if we had removed a great heap of rubbish,
and had struck a vein of gold ; for what were all
our useless forms, all cur servants and equipage, but
so many obstacles in the way of our knowing each
other ? Then there was nothing I could do fin- you
now I can do everything ;" and almost .sobbing, she
continued, " if you call this coming down, I thank
God for it, for it has, in truth, been coming down to
usefulness and happiness. With what our friends call
ed misfortunes, Ave were the gainers every time. Was
it not pleasant or to ride in the open carriage, to see
what was about us, an A feel the air and sunshine,
than to be shut up in the old lumbering coach ? And
then to walk and have the advantage of exercise as
well as air, was better still ; and now to work, and
so get air and exercise, and be useful at the same
time, is best of all. One room darkened another
when we had, a great house ; now the light and sun
shine come in all round. Our expensive furniture
required careful keeping ; so I had the care both of
furniture and servants ; now I can keep the little we
require myself, and what was before wearisome is
pleasure. I have no ceremonious calls to use the
time which I can pass in friendly interchange of
thought and feeling, with neighbors who come to sec
me, and not my house or dress. Believe me, my
husband, a house to shelter us, and one that is withal
tasteful and pretty, and ground that gives us bread
and fruit, and-water and flowers all for a little
work ; and that is the blesscdcst of our provisions for
through no other means can we obtain rest."
" You aie the best and noblest woman in the
world," exclaimed the husband, interrupting her,
" and but for you I should come down in verity.
Now I am convinced that while we maintain honesty
and self-respect, coming down is impossible."
It is sad to think of the great fine rooms, piled one
over another, and darkening one against another
too costly for use, and too elegant for the free tread
and merry laughter of inartificial jo" growing damp
and mouldy, and sending to the hearts of their in
mates heaviness or stupidity, when we know they
might be set up separately in bright green spots here
and there, and make such little worlds of comforts.
Pity it is that false notions at all, arc so enfeebling
and degenerating our men and women. How shall I
spend the time? and by what process shall I beat out
my little gold so that it shall display the most glitter
ing surface? are the first questions of the day.
