John Jankin's Sermon.
The minister said lent night. iBTI hf,
"Don'l rm afraid of iflrln' i
If Tour lire alnl nntliln' toollior folki,
tVhr. wbafi Ihe nae of llyln'f'
And lliat'a what I ay to wlf-, anvt Is
There's Brown, Ibe mlaerable ilnner.
He'd sooner a Iteggnr would stnrve than give
A. cent toward boyln' dinner.
I JnM tell yon, o nr mlnlBter'i prime, he It,

When I heard blm plvln' It rljtht and left,
Jnat who a lilt br liia sermon.
Of course there couldn't lie n mistake
When he tnlkrd of lonp-wlndt'd prayln',
For Peters and Johnson sot snd scowled
At every word he was savin'.
And ihe minister he went on to any,
There's vsrions kinds of chesllri',
And religion's ss food for every day
As it Is to brlnff to meetln'.
I don't think much of man fhnt frlve '
The Lord A mens at my preachln',
And spends his time the rest of the week
In cheailn'. snd overreacblnV r
I pness that dose was hitter enonelr ' v
For man like Jones to gwaller t
But I noticed he didn't open his mouth
For once, after that, to holler.- - r .
Iliirrnli, says I, for the minister t
Of cotirw I said It quiet
Oive us some more ol this open talk
It's very refresliin' diet. a
The minister bit 'em every time;
And when he spoke of fashion.
And a-ricgin' nut in bows and things, :
As woman's ml in' pnsaion.
And a-cnmln' to church In see the ttylci,
I could not help a-winkin' . ..
And a-nudgin' my wire and sayt I, ''that's

And I guess It sot her thlnkin'. .'
Bays I to myself: Thst sermon's pat;
But man Is a queer creation ,
I'm most afrnld Hint most ol' Ihe folks
Won't luke the application.
Now, if he had said a word about
My personal modi- o sinnin',
I'd lisve gone to work In right myeell,
And not set here a-crinnin'.
Just I hen the minister says, savs he,
"And now I've come to the fellers
Who've lost this shower by usln' their
As sort of moral umbrellas.
Go home, says he, and find your faults,
Instead of huntin' your brothers' ;
Go home, he says, and wear the coats .
You've tried to fit for others..
My wire she nudged, and Brown he winked,
Anil there, whs lots o smilln ,
And lots o' lodkin' at our pew j
It sot my blood a-bilin.'
Bays I to myself, our minister
Is gillin' a Utile bitter;
I'll tell lilni, when merlin's out, that I
Alu't at all that kind of a crilter.
OLD KILBORNE'S WILL.
Old Walter Kilborne died mid left a
fortune that aggregated nearly a mil
lion. The cloomy old house which had
brcn the family residence for many a
rear, stood in one of the down town
streets which had once been the site of
the fashionable residences of New York.
Hut the wealthy had long ago moved to
the avenues, leaving the perverse old
millionaire to hold his own among the
growing business of the once aristocrat
ic thoroughfare. . A bunch of : black
crape still hung on the bell-knob, four
days alter the funeral, when a bent, wily-looking
man pulled it. Being admit
ted, he was shown into the dingy room
which Mr. Kilborne had in his life used
as his office. This bent aud wily-looking
roan wasf lawyer Whittemore. '
"Good morning," said the lawyer, as
Robert, a grand-child of the dead mil
lionaire, a young man who " showed
plainly enough the marks of rough so
cial usage, entered and extended his
hand rather listlessly. 1 . 1
"Good morning," was his reply.
"Well," echoed the lawyer. ; t.
"You got my note?" ' .'
"Asking me to meet you here? Yes;
what do you want?"
"Yon drew my grandfather's will?"
"I did, two days before he died."
"What were its contents?"
"I have no richt to tell you," and
Mr. Whittemore tried to look severe.
"It is with the surrogate' now, and you
will know its contents on Thursday,
when . it will be officially opened. I
couldn't think of violating my offi
cial" "Not unless you are paid for it," in
terrupted the voung man. "I under
stand, that perfectly .well, and will be
plain' and brief 'with you. As you are
aware, myselt and my cousin JViyra are
the pnly living relatives of my grand
father. We have been brought up in
this house together, and each hates the
other as much as possible. Now, I've
no idea how the property is left, aud I
want to know, i am willing to pay for
the knowledge in advance of the open
ing of the will, and you have it to sell."
Xhe lawyer assented with a cool nod
cf his head.
"Then name '
noDert. r r i nr"r'
- t ,
"One thousafid dollars.'!
"I haven't so much."
"Your note for a month will do."
The document was quickly written
out, signed by the young man, and
transferred to the lawyer's pocket.
"Hie will, then," said our. vvnitte-
more, "is a strange oue --as strange as
the the man who made it but he would
listen to no advice, and I had nothing to
do but carry out his wishes. , He leaves
all his property to Myra Kilborne."
; "1) n him!" hissed Robert.
"Ilord." said the lawyer, '"until you
hear the conditions. lie leaves all his
property to Myra, as I said before, on
condition that she shall immediately
sign an agreement to within a year be
come your-wife. If she shall decline to
fulfill this condition, the property be
longs to you,, The only other point is,
that, in 'case Myra is 'married to any
body before the will is opened, she gets
the property tb Mme as jf she marrie
you. But that provision, of course, is
of no consequence, she ia not likely
to marry before day after to-morrow,
which is Thursday, on which the docu

in his companions face, as If expecting
aa expression of displeasure, 11&wm

ditionally. You ec, I've been rather
fast, and the old man disliked it, while
Myra'a gentle ways and attention to his
wants won his regard, bhe in complete
ly bound up in her lover, Harry Perton,
who is hundreds ol miles away just
now, and I don't believe she would irive
him up for thefortune a dozen timet
over. . Even if she could consent to
marry, I wouldn't be so badly oil with
the property almost under my control."
Xhe lawyer here arose, hade his un
scrupulous patron good day, and went
But, as he did so, had his ears been
younger, he might have caught the
sound of rustling skirts fleeing up the
stairway those same skirts enveloping
the pretty form of Myra Kilborne, who
had heard every word of the interview
by listening at the door.
"So, so, she mused, when she had
reached her room and thrown herself In
to a chair, "I am to buy the fortnno by
selling myself. I won t do it. I would
not give up Harry for fifty limes a mil
lion. Robert can take tins money, and
much good may it do him."
Yet, notwithstanding her final decis
ion, Myra could not relinquish without
a pang the. fortune which she had al
ways looked forward to as her certain
portion. Her grandfather had always
seemed to regard her with affection, and
she had never dreamed that in his will
he could interpose such a distasteful re
striction. "If Harry was only here," she
thought, "there would not be any
trouble because we would get married
before Thursday. What shall I do? I
wish I had somebody to advise me. And
I can have a lawyer is what I want.
They are tip to all sorts of tricks, they
Without a moment's delay she dressed
herself for the street and went out. She
knew no lawyer, but walked until she
came to a building upon which she had
often seen an array of legal signs. Pass
ing up stairs, and selecting a name from
the lot that chanced to strike her most
favorably, bIic entered a well-furnished
A middle-aged man sat alone writing

"I Mr. Temple in?"

pretty visitor and motioning her to a
seat, "that is my name."
'I have come for some legal advice

importance to me and
"If I am to aid you," said the lawyer,
kindly, 'vou must speak trankiy and un
reservedly, which yon may do in the ut
Thus eneourarred. Myra told hint the
whole story of the will, the manner in
which she had obtained information, and
her feelings in the matter.
"Ol course, naid she, "I want to re
tain the fortune, but not at the price
stipulated in the will. Can you help
Mr. Temple sat for a while in deep
thought so long in tact, that Myra got
hilgeiy in waiting.
At last his face brightened wun an
idea, and he at once - imparted it to bis
fair client. For an hour they were in
-Thai day and the next passed, and
Thursday came. The will was to be read
in the surrocBie's office. : At 11 o'clock
a carriage drove up to the Kilborne resi
dence. - Iu it were Mr. Tempi and two
of his moat intimate, friends. The for
mer alighted and entered the house. In

"No," she replied.

THE SORROWS OF ANN ELIZA.
A correspondent of the New York Sun
recently interviewed Brigham Young,
and also Mrs. Aim Eliza oungwho has
recently brought suit for a divorce, and
from his narrative we are at last ena
bled to get a comparatively clear view
of the situation, and to realize the length
and breadth of -this first out break iu Sir.
Young's household, and the extent to
which Ann Eliza had been damnified
by her unfortunate marriage. The cop
respondent found Mr. Young iu his pri
vate room in the Lion House a room
richly furnished, the floor covered with
soft carpets and hung with lino paint
ings, while the rich tables were strewn
wit h elegant ormolu ornament-. And
yet he was not happy. The correspond
ent at once entered upon his business,
and inquired if the divorce papers
were served upon him. He replied
in the affirmative.. . He had read them
through, but they were of no account.
It was only another attempt at black
mail.. The men who were ruuning the
suit wanted to get some of the Mormon
money, but they would not succeed.
Ami Eliza was always treated as n wife
should, be treated. No stipulations
were made, she had no cause tor com
plaint. She had had bod advisers, and
had taken a wrong step. With regard
to the legal aspects ot the case, me
Prophet was certain it was a put-upjob,
and the complaint was made in a L uit-
ed States Court, which had . uo juris
diction. The Territorial law conferred
the nower to try such suits as these up
on the Probate Court" alone, and Terri-
i 1 i;
torutt taws are oinuing witnina prescnu
ed limit until Congress annuls them.
As it was a put-up job: however, the
Prophet had no doubt the case ' would'
be entertained in the United 'StatcB
Court, and then he should feel it to be
his duty to charge Ann Eliza with adul
tery, for which he had abundant and
clear nroots. The above w tne suosiaiico
of the Prophet's statement, so- far as the
divorce Is concerned. The conversation
did not' clone, however, until he had
freed his mind upon the subject of the
Territorial Utice-hoiders, wnom ne de
nounced in bitter terms aa rogues and
scoundrels, who had demoralized the
whole Territory, tiled their pockets wun
plunder, packed grand juries, and were
in general, "a set of -God-forsaken
rascals," which u probably not far from
story, which differs very 'erntially
from that of the Prophet. Mrs. Yonng
is a woman of 25, who wn once hand
some, but whose beauty has been shat
tered by mental and physical suffering.
She was born at Nauvoo, of Mormon
iflrentH, and her first marriage was an
unhappy one. She married Drigham
partly because she was afraid to refuse
find partly to help her brother, who
had a contract with Young to put up
some telegraph poles, and had been un
able to collect tne money. She and her
parents lived at Little Cottonwood, and
one day I'righam was down there at
tending a meeting. After the meeting
he asked if he might walk home with
her, and she answ ered, as many n maid
en has ln-forc: I have no objection."
On the way he asked her whether she
thought of marrying again; to which
she replied that she had had two or
three offers, and refused them, just as
gentle maidens often cautiously guard
themselves when they find themselves
approaching delicate ground. The next
day Brigham came to dinner, and nfter
dinner he took her father aside and prol
posed to marry her. This gay deceiver,
with sixteen wives already, professed
that he had always loved Ann Eliza, and
as an inducement, he promised to give
her a house and lot and good support,
with 1 1,000 a year for pocket-money.
Ann Eliza's father jumped at the bait
and shortly after Ann Eliza did the
same, and found herself hooked. It is
probable that she 'then commenced to
look down upon the other girls and to
give herself airs, but they were of short
duration. She soon found outth.it her
husband was both false aud fickle, and
that there were sixteen other she's to re
ceive his favors before her. She never
saw the house and lot, nor the good sup
port, nor the thousand a year.
Whenever he saw her he used very in
sulting and vulgar language to her. He
never took her to the theatre, lie never
ate with her. He never allowed her to
go to the stores and run up a bill. She
was obliged to witness his affection for
his favorites and not open her mouth.
He no longer walked home from meet
ing with her. In a word she appeared
iu the catalogue as No. 17, and that was
all. Ihere was a skeleton in her closet,
and in fifteen other closets also, and
that skeleton was Amelia, the favorite
wife. He showed attentions to Amelia.
He took Amelia to the theatre to see
the Gentile actors. He allowed Amelia
to run up bills in Zion s Co-operative
Mercantile Establishment. Amelia got
a new gown or a set of jewelry whenev
er she wanted it. In fact. Amelia did
what she pleased, and the reason was
that Amelia had a will and a way
of her own, and was a virago who had
mysterious ways of convincing lingham
that he had better humor her, if he had
any regard for his health, and. who by
the same processes, also pursuaded the
other wives to sing very small, and stay
at home, and not bother the old gentle
man. Whenever it happened, as it
sometimes did, on rare occasions, that
Briirham refused her any little favor,
then she commenced a systematic break
age of dishes and furniture which she
industriously kept up until the old gen
tleman was willing to come down. In
a word Amelia monopolized him, and
thus made it very monotonous and unin
teresting for the rest, especially tor Ann
Eliza, who not only had to make way
for Amelia, but also for the other hf
teen. In view of all this, it is not surprising
that Ann Kliza should feel badly. One
may well ask, Of what use Brigham is
to Ann Eliza as a husband? A husband
is supposed to provide his wife with a
home, to support her, to buy her bon
nets, and gowns, and rings, and pins, to
furnish her with pocket-money, to take
her to the theatre, to sit at the head of
the pew, and to love and cherish her and
take a paternal interest in the children,
kc, etc. Jiut as tar as nny ot these
privileges ' aro concerned, Ann Eliza
might as well have a husband living in
It is a hard case. Ann Eliza is a dis
appointed, miserable woman, no doubt,
ami this old reprobate of 73 winters,
who stands in the nominal relations of
husband to her, ought to bo compelled
at least to make good his promise with
which he enticed her when they walked
home from meeting together at " Little-.
Cottonwood. We do not see, howev
er, that the courts can afford any relief
in the premises, and she herself has vi
olated the laws of the land in marrying
and oohabiting with lingham loung.
Her surest remedy is to follow the ex
ample of Amelia and break things. If
Amelia can have her own way by pre
senting Brigham with broken crockery,
Ann Elzia can also do the same. AN e
can see no other way out of her tronb
les, especially as whatever Ann Eliza may
testify Brigham can produce a cloud of
witnesses who will swear to the contra
ry, and, in addition, convict her of all
the crimes in the calendar.

The Official announcement of the be
trothal of the Grand Duchess Maria Al-
exandrovna only daughter of the Czar of
Kussia, to the liuke of Edinburgh,
second son of Queen Victoria, has
brought out an episode in the life of
the Lrrand Ouches, which is now the
chief subject of gossip in St. Petersburg.
It appears that about two years ago the
Czar convinced the idea of marrying his
daughter to the Duke ofJEdinburgh and
as a preliminary step, sent for a young
English professor iu the Universty of St.
Petersburg, named Swayne. to teach her
English. The Duchess immediately '
fell in love with her teacher, and in
formed him of it. For several months
he taught her English and she taught
nun love, but one day the Czar told
her he should shortly take her to a Ger
man watering-place to make the ac
quaintance of her intended. She in
formed him that would be unnecessary,
as she had already given her heart and
hand . to Mr. Swanye. Thereupon she ,
was sent to her apartments, and Prof.
Swayne was summoned, and informed
by the Czar that he had better leave
Russia immediately, which he did. The
young Duchess was inconsolable for a
long time, and swore to her parents she
would never marry the Duke of Edin
burg. AVhen she was taken to Ger
many she refused lo meet her intended,. .
and during her recent sojourn with
her mother in Italy she heaped continu
al slights upon his head. Her repug
nance, however was finally overcome,
and now instead, of becoming plain Mrs.
Swayne, she will soon be Duchess of
Edinburg. How much comfort the
Duke may derive from the alliance is
another consideration. The episode
shows that eveu a Czar's daughter is .
apt to be human. .. ,
