Whatever lacks Purpose is evil; a pool without
pebbles breeds slime;
Not any one step hath Chance fashioned on
the infinite stairway of Time;
Nor ever came Good without I-abor, in Toil,

It must be wrought out through the muscles
?born out of the soul and the heart.
Why plow in tho stubble with plowshares??
Why winnow the chaff from the grain?
Ah, since all of His gifts must be toiled for,
since Truth is not born without pain!
He giveth not to the unworthy, the weak, or
the foolish in deeds;
Who giveth but chaff at the seed-time shall
reap but a harvest of weeds.
As the pyramid builded of vapor is blown

So the song without Truth is forgotten: His

CAUGHT AT LAST.
A 8TOKY OK CIUMK IN PAKIS.
Monsieur Cheroy was a poor dentist of
the Rue de Chazelles, Paris, lie was a
widower with a large family, and resided
in the Rue de Legendro. He had been
struggling for a livelihood for years, for,
although an expert dentist and a finelooking
man of cood address, fate seemed
to have denied him success. As it was,
he was barely able to make a subsistence
for himself and family, and, to tell the
truth, added a little to his doubtful professional
income by acting nightly as a
i.?n w, T?m. .W
On the afternoon of November 7, lSn:t,
Cheroy was standing not far from the
billiard hall, when he saw a veiled lady
quit a large millinery establishment near
by and approach a carriage in waiting
for her. The day was windy and raw
and the early part bad been wet. As
the lady stepped into her carriage her
vnil blew on one wide and she caught it
and drew it to her. At the moment
Cheroy saw something flash. The lady
had entered the carriage and it was
Cheroy watched the vehicle depart,
". and as he was turning away his eye was
attracted by a glitter in the gutter, in
which there was mud and water. Looking
more carefully he was satisfied that
the brilliancy came from nothing less
than a diamond. As be drew near the
edge of the sidewalk he distinctly sawthat
a splendid piece of jewelry lay in
the mud. For a moment ho hesitated.
Paris is not a city where a person other
than a chiffonier can pick anything from
a gutter without being observed and
probably, surrounded. Cheroy kney this
well, and had recourse, therefore, to a
ruse. Taking his purse from his pocket,
he appeared to be searching for something
inside, and then accidentally, as it
were, dropped it into the gutter. In
picking it up he gathered up the supposed
jewel with it, and then placed
uoth in his handkerchief. Having
wiped the pocketbook, carefully concealing
the jewel, he put both into
his pocket and went toward the billiard
On examining his find he was satisfied
that it was most valuable. A large brilliant
turrounded by sixteen smaller stones,
all set in a magnificent piece of filigree,
was what was disclosed to him. Carefully
putting it away, he attended to his
duties that night.
Next moaning he visited the Rue de
Vaugirard, where an old jeweler whom
he knew had his business. This man,
named Greuze, bought gold and silver,
and supplied a good many oi the smaller
dentists'with what they required. lie
was a shrewd dealer and a skilful lapidary.
When Cheroy showed him the
jewelry he examined it slowly and without
enthusiasm, and at last, having scrutinized
it through several powerful
lenses, he laid it on the counter with a
smile nnd shrugged his shoulders.
"Well, what uo you think about it,
monsieur?" asked Cheroy.
"Paste." was the aflnost conlemptu
"There you are wrong." said Cheroy;
"no false gems ever shone like these
stones, and beside, the setting shows
> that the thing invaluable.
Greuze took the jewel once more and
examined it. At length he said:
"I may be mistaken, monsieur, and if
you will leave it with mo a few days I
will take means to settle beyond a doubt
the question of the genuineness of these
. ' stones."
" Many thanks" was the answer;
"but I return it to the owner this evening."
"The Marchioness dc Ponthieu.
Greuzc said, with a half sneer.
"I don't understand you,"Chcroy said.
,; "You don't,', Grcuze replied; ''read
And he drew a morning newspaper
from his side pocket, folded so as to
show a small space, and handed it to
Cheroy, at the same time placing his
finger on an advertisement. Cheroy
took the newspaper and read as foltows:
One Thousand Francs Reward.?Lost

establishment of Mine. Jolivet Bonlovard des
Cnpucins, a brooch set with one lai-go central
brilliant and sixteen smaller ones. The finder
will receivo the reward named above in returning

Ponthieu, Boulevard Hausmann.
4,Th:s is the article, evidently,"
Chcroy said, "and with a knowledge of
this advertisement and reward I cannot
understand how you cau suppose for a
moment that the jewels arc spurious."
"If they had been genuine," was the
reply, "don't you suppose the reward
would have been larger?" Greuzc asked.
"A thousand francs is a good deal of
money," Cheroy replied.
"To you it may be," was the answer;

Cheroy handed him the brooch and he
on:e more scrutinized it closely.
"They may be genuine," ho said;
He opened a casket and exhibited what
appeared to be a magnificent necklace of
" Will you believe," he said, " when I
tell you that every stone here is spurious
?it is all paste? It is true, nevertheless.
Now, you are a poor man, and the
marchioness 13 rich. suppose these
stones are real. You take them to her
and she hands you in return a paltry
1.006 francs. Nay, you don't know that
she may not have a detective in her anteroom
to arrest you as a thief. Now, I
will talk business with you?shall I?
Then here is my proposal: These stones
are genuine?no doubt of it. If you will
leave the brooch with me for four and
twenty hours I will take out these stones
and put paste in their places and give you
1en thousand francs for them. Then you
can take the brooch to Madame de
Ponthieu and get your 1,000 francs."
in-?-'- ""But she will discover the cheat, will
97 she" not?"
"If she does," was the answer, "lay
the blame on me. I will take the risk."
Cheroj was poor and his childreuwere
miserably clad and winter was coming
on, and he yielded to the tempter. The
next evening, when Greuze handed him
the brooch with paste substituted for the
real gems, he "was astounded. For the
life of him he could not tell the difference.
He returned the brooch to the marchioness
ana received the reward. But
he invented a story as to how he came
"I am a humble dentist," lie said,
"and my small placc is on the Hue dc
Chazelles. On the evening of the day
before yesterday, when I was just about
to quit my place, a rough-looking man
entered, and, icmoving a kerchief which
was around his throat and chin, he asked
me to examine his front teeth. I found
that two of them were broken off and
the jaw was swollen. I removed the
stumps and applied a soothing lotion to
him. He said that some ruffians hud attempted
to rob a lady on the comer of
the Boulevard des Capucins and the Rue
de Seze, and that, in driving them off
with some other passenger, he received
a blow across the mouth. lie was on his
way to the Boulevard Malesherhds to the
Rue Jouffrav, when the pain grew so severe
that he sought a dentist. After he
was gone I was preparing to depart,
when I saw something lying in the seat
which the stranger had occupied. I
raised It and found it was a handkerchief
tied in several knots. On opening them
I found the brooch inside. I immedi'
atcly started for home, and didn't see
your advertisement until this morning."
The Marchioness de Ponthieu was
"very grateful to Cheroy, and next
day drove to his officc in the Rue de
Chazelle with a friend nnd had Cheroy
examine her teeth. She made an ap- i
pointment with him tne next day, by
" which time he had changed the furniure
of the apartment and rented and
fitted up an adjoining room. The marchioness
expressed her satisfaction and
her intention of patronizing him and
rccommendiug him to her friends. The
result was that every day tho carriage of
some wealthy lady stopped at the door,

By and by he let it be known that he used

increased income. Greuze soon learned

moved a splendid bracelet of large and i
superb diamonds, and passed it in to j
Greuze in the adjoining room, who in a
minute had taken three or four install- !
tancous photographs of it. Meanwhile
Cheroy operated on his patient, and had
the anesthetic ready to renew its application
if necessary. Greuze handed back
the bracelet, and Cheroy clasped it
on the lady's wrist. Then Greuze de- J
The next day but one Madam Emerian 1
again submitted herself to the dentist,
and again wore the splendid bracelet.
No sooner was she under the influence
of the ana'Sthctic than Chevoy unclasped
the bracelet and handed it to Greuze,
who appeared from the adjoining room.
Greuze compared it with another bracelet,
which he then handed with a triumpant
look to Cheroy, who clasped it
on the ladies' wrist.
This scheme was performed, perhaps,
on various customers a score of times
without detection, and Cheroy and
Greuze were growing wealthy on the
spoils. At length a circnmstance ocj
currcd which led to the detection and
punishment of this pair of scoundrels.
One afternoon a Madam Maubert,
wlmm tlii?v hurl selected as a victim.
came to Chcroy's accompauied by a
mnguificcnt mastiff. Cheroy suggested
its being left iu charge
of the coachman, as it might
be troublesome, but Mine. Maubert assured
him that he would be perfectly
still where she directed him until she
gave him permission to move. The gas
was administered, Greuzc carac from his
room holding the spurious gem which
was substituted for the lady's brooch,
and Cheroy was in the act of removing
the jewelry from the lady's neck, when
: the mastiff sprang upon him and seized
I him by the arm.
The next moment Cheroy fell, and the
dog changed his grip to the throat. The
man struggled and Grcuze tried in vain
to drag the savage beast away. Chcrov's
j cries for help were heard on the street,
I and two officers were soon on the spot.

j Cheroy, who was lacerated and bleeding.

Maubert's, but with spurious gems?was
found in Greuze's possession. The plates
disclosed to the eye of a sharp detective
the fact that many beautiful pieces of
jewelry had been photographed, and no
doubt remained of the business which
Cherov and his accomplices had carried
on. Greuze's place in the liue de Yaugirard
was searched and valuable gems
were found. Cheroy made a confession,
and many precious stones were recovered
and restored to their owners.
There is no doubt that the scheme was
of Greuze's concocting, and that Cheroy
was too weak-minded to resist temptation.
Grcuze was sentenced to twenty years
and Cheroy to fifteen, at hard labor.?

Cornelius Vandcrbiit's palace (on Fifth
avenue) is now understood to be for sale,
but as yet no price has been announced,
asserts a New York correspondent of the
Utica lit raid. If any reader, however,
should make an offer of half a million it
might be accepted, and even then it
would be selling below cost. Why, the

By the time he got fairly in occupation
he became a heavy Wall street
speculator, and no doubt hoped to make
enough to pay for the palace. Instead
of that, however, he only sunk a large
part of his patrimony, and is now so
deeply involved as to require the assistance
of his father. The latter no

this example probably led Cornelius into
his extravagance. These Vanderbilt
houses cost not less than $2,000,000, and
it will be a longtime before such an outlay
will be equaled.
What a difference in taste is displayed
by another millionaire who stands alone
in the ranks of wealth, at least in love of
horses. This is no temporary fancy.

J Bonner does not crave a palacc like
Vanderbilt, beiug satisfied to excel him
in horse flesh. In this point, indeed, he
has always astonished the public. When
he paid $10,000 for Lantern every one
was astonished. That was twenty-five
years ago, however, and since then he
has invested a halt million in the same
manner. The interest on this investment
is $500 a week, and the cost of keeping
the animnls is an eoual sum. Had
Bonner been like Astor, he would have
put his money into land, and (taking
interest into consideration) he would in
that case be richer by a million and a
half. Ilad ho been like Lenox, he would
have invested in rare books and literary
j curiosities. Hnd he resembled Commodore
i Vanderbilt, he would have gone into
stocks and become a power in Wall street.
None of these things, however, moved
him. He kept aloof from other attractions.
He owns no stocks and no rare
book8, and only real estate sufficient for
his own use. The horse is his passion,

It is called grapes when fresh; raisins

The Cape Verde islands are fourteen

noted by a recent visitor at the islauds.
His hostess was smoking a cigarette,

be profitably grown only by those who
make a business of it, and conform to all
their peculiarities. Gooseberries and \
currents, on the other hand, are not so
"mifly,'' as gardeners say of certain
plants. A farmer can have a plantation
of either or both of these, and may often
profitably market the fruit not required
by the family, One great advantage of
these fruits is. they are in demand when
green. Gooseberries, indeed, are almost
invariably marketed while unripe, and
green currants, in city m -rkets, at least,
are always in demand. Ripe gooseberries
an; hardly known in our markets, but j
ripe currants transport readily, and may
be sent to market in baskets holding ten
pounds, and if not sold the first day,
I remain 111 a salable condition for several
I ilays after. Gooseberries and currants
may be raised by farmers and others,
who have not the time to devote to the
I more perishable fruits, or who arc too
far from market for their safe transportation.
They may be planted for supplying
the family, and to allow of a surplus
that will bring in a little ready
money. If a plantation is to be made,
it may be done this spring, as soon after
the ground can be worked as possible.
Good, strong, rich, moist soil is best;
if planted in poor soil, let it be well
manured. Procure plants irom tne nurseries,
and set them in rows four or five
feet ajtart, and the same distances apart
in the rows. Plants may be had a year
old, which will eive some fruit the next
year. Do not expect fruit the same.ycar
the bushes are planted, and if any bios
soms appear, pick tliem oil. ane varieties
are numerous. For currants we
should select Versailles and white grape.
Fay's prolific is true to its name, but
being new may cost a little more. For
gooseberries, only the American varieties
should be planted. Houghton is one
of the most reliable; Downing sseedling
and Smith's improved are good. "When

' JakeV Parrot.
A Hush street barber has recently |
added to the interior decorations of his
tonsorinl symposium a large owl, whose
Solomonic visage assists iu wooing somnolent
delights, while the nimble blade
is reaping its hirsute harvest. The other
day a callow youth whose eyebrows are
much more prolific iu their growth than
the hair upon his lip, nnd whose intellect
is in an inverse ratio to his knowledge of
cheap slang, entered the shop and spied
the apotheosis of wisdom upon the perch
near the chief chair of torture. Deeming
it a rare opportunity to be "funny"
at the expense of the proprietor, who
had recently lost his wife and wassubject
to fits of melancholy, the "fresh" young
man proceeded to distribute his stock of i
"chart" for the delectation of the occupants
of the neighboring chairs.
"Ilello, Jake, where did y' ketch the
Silence enveloped the shop like a funeral
pall, and the barber went on shaving.
Nothing daunted, Mr. Fresh
moved a little closer to the perch, and
after a careful survey thus delivered himself
"Why, the mark that stuffed that
chromo couldn't stuff a sausage for me.
Git onto them eyes; the're a couple of
glass heads poked in there. Pipe the
position of him. Who ever seen an owl
in thnf. nnqish? '
He paused for a reply, but the painful
stillness was only broken by the scraping
of the steel, and "Jake" quietly went on
The ease was getting desperate, and
the youth saw theneccssity of immediate
and decisive action; so advancing toward
the bird, with outstretched hand
he said, almost plaintively:
"Say, Jake, honest., now; get onto the
way they've fixed the head of his nibs."
Nut the lesson in taxidermy was never
concluded, for as the aggressive hand
reached the ruffled poll of the big-eyed
bird there was a blink, a sweep and a
snap, and ' 'Jake's" pet sat quietly munching
a small cutlet, which had once been
a portion of the youth's manual anatomy.
The " trusty Damascus blade " glinted
and scintillated, as the barber quietly
went on shaving, and the silence was oppressive
as the wounded youth started
for a drug store, mentally debating
whether he had made expenses on the
trip.? San Francisco Altn.
He Saw the Fal'i. ?
At the Kalls of Montmorency, below
Quebec, there is a hotel by the roadside
where you pay twenty-five cents to a
woman who can't talk English and in
consideration of this sum you are alio wed
to see the falls. A. young fellow paid
just as I left the house to walk across
the fields to the steps in front of the
falls. He came runuing after me. lie
bad walked all the way from Quebec?
about nine miles?and now his impatience
was getting the better of him.
"You paid first," he said, "but would
you mind ray going down the sicps

"Not at all," I said. "I guess, though, \
the steps are wide enough for two to go i
"I suppose so, but I want to get there
before a crowd comes. I hate a crowd.
1 want to enjoy the falls alone."
"It is too late in the season for a j
crowd. I don't suppose anyone has been '
here for a month.
As we came to the long stairway he !
hopped merrily down, two stairs at a
time. Suddenly his feet went out from
under him and he went down the stair,
which is very steep, in a sittiug posture,
giving a shriek every time lie hit a new i
step. There were several platforms, but
lie shot over them with incredible swiftness
in spite of all his efforts to stop.and
at one "time I thought nothing would
save him from g>>ing right down into

around one of the railing supports and
hung on there seemingly panic stricken |

the first few top steps the rest had been j

Arseuic in Hosiery.
" Wearing colored hosiery develops
some peculiar facts," said a dealer on
Broadway to a New York Mail and Exprats
" What arc they ?"
" Well, it would seem cheap colored
stockiugs would be more liable to have
poison in their color than the higher
priced ones, but the fact is just the reverse.
You never hear of poor people
being poisoned by wearing cheap colored
hosiery. It is only those who wear the
best material. It would scarcely pay to
put arsenic in a cheap article. A gentlej
man bought a pair of colored silk socks.
I He wore them once a.nd afterward com!
arrifritation and soreness in
nla limbs. An investigation revealed
the fget that he had been poisoned by
tfrCcoTWMt! th??jijyi_aiik'-soek^"'hc "KT>?e.
They contained arsonic. I took them
back, had them dyed a deep black and
they did not poison the wearer after
that. Now this fact shows that the finpst
hosiorv has more noison in their color
than the very cheap kind. When the
weather ia warm the cheap colored hosiery
runs, and the color gets all over
the feet. At night the color is washed
off and no harmful effects are felt. When
the weather is warm fine colored hosiery
runs, but very little. However so little,
though, the cffect upon the wearer is deleterious
and frequently results in blood
I cannot say, though, that this is true in
every case, but many that I have known
| exemplify what I have stated. The poor
i people have a wonderful immunity, it
! seems, from poisoning produced in this
I manner. If arscnic was used in cheap
i hosiery as much as in fine, the hospitals
I might be full of patients now, all suffcrI
ing from poisoning in the feet and
limbs. Of course it is the aim of the
manufacturers to have as little arsenic as
possible in the coloring they use, but the
faintest trace occasionally has a wonderful
effect upon some people who have
impure blood susceptible to any influence.
"Black shades of hosiery seem to be free
from poisoning. Of the colors more likely
to contain it is red. Dark gray, light
straw, deep maroon aud such shades
possess less of poisoning than the bright,
deadn(l colors like rea, omc, orange,
green, violet and garnet. These colors
arc always dyed to a black il a hue and
cry is made ngainst wealing stockings
with poisons in them. Black never injures
and contnins no arsenic.
''I must say that I really believe that
a small proportion of the colored hosiery
used by the general public perhaps may
have arsenic in them. 'The greater majority
do not, and there is little probability
that with all the means of detecting
poisons in color any manufacturer
will be rash enough to put in enough arsenic
to create a panic in hosiery.
In the time of Shakespeare, nnd, indeed,
for a century or two beforo his
day, it appears that the term ale wns
synonymous with festival; and henco its
occurrence in such phrases as Leet-ale,
Whitson-ale, Bride-al^, etc., numerous
references to which we meet with in the
literature of that period. Thus Chaucer
uses it in this sense; and Ben Jonsou,
in his''Masque of Queens," makes one
of the hags say: "A piper it got at a
church ale." Shakepcare also employs
the expression in "Pericles:*'
"It lias been sung at festivals,
On omber eves and holy-ales."
As at these festivals ale seems to have
been the predominant liquor, it is
highly probable that from this circumstance
the term took its origin. On such
an occasiou, for instance, it was the
business of the church wardens to have
specially brewed a considerable quantity
of strong ale, which was sold to the visitors;
a practice which, it is recorded,
led to "great pecuniary advantage, for
the rich thought it was a meritorious
duty, beside paying for their aie, to
oiler largely to the church fund." Hence,
it was no uncommon thing in some parishes
to have several of these ales in the
course of the year, and sometimes one
or more parishes would agree to hold annually
a certain number of them. As
an illustration of this usage, we may
quote the following curious stipulation,
preserved in the Bodleian library: "The
parishioners of Elvaston and Okcbrook,
in Derbyshire, agree jointly to brew four
ales betwixt this (the tune of the contract)
and the feast of.St. John Baptist
next coming; and that every inhabitant
of the said town of Okebrook shall be at
the several ales; and every husband and
his wife shall pay two pence, and every
cottager one penny; and all the inhabitants
of Evalston shall have ami nceive
all the profits and advantages coining or
the said ales, to the use and behoof of
the said church of Elvaston."?C/lumber's
Trees nntl Torrents.
From the *lO/iitan'/K(iu" wo make tlic
following extract from an article by the
Hev. S. \Vr. Powell, secretary of the New
York State Forestry association, recently
organized at Utica: A torrent is a stream
liable to extreme and sudden increase and
decrease?usually very small or quite dry
in a dry time, but liable to rise suddenly i
to a great height, and as quickly to
shrink to its former size. By the loss of!
its once rich forests, tlic Ardeche, a
tributary of the Hhouc, became such a
torrent, its principal branch often being
entirely dry. Jt has been known to rise
sixty feet and dwindle back to almost
nothing within a few days. The upper |
Hudson has apparently nil the conditions |
necessary for becoming such a torrent, if j
once its forests are exterminated. It
descends some 4,000 feet in a short and
steep course, from a region where there
falls a great deal of rain and snow.
Keeping F1ow?m Fresh.
All that is necessary to keep flowers,
fresh is to keep them moist and cool.
Instead of dipping flowers in wnter,
they should simply be wrapped up in a
wet newspaper, which will keep them :
far fresher over night. A wet towel or
napkin is too lieavv, and will crush the
blooms too much; beside, it would allow :
the moisture to evaporate too easily. I
Boston florists pack rosebuds in wet '
paper, and send them as far west as Chi- i
cago, or even St. Louis, where they are i
taken out even fresher than when they
came off the bush.?Boston Budget.

A Matrimonial Romance.
The recent marriage at Mount Sterling,
Ohio, of Jerome R. Burton to Mrs. Annie
Evans, though a quiet affair, was really
the acme of one of the prettiest romances
in real life, the particulars of which are
furnished by a correspondent of the St.
Mrs. Burton, recently Mrs. Evans, nee
Annie Tipton, is now but thirty-five, is
pretty, petite, ana j>ir. iiurton is ner
third husband,and yet her first. Eighteen
years ngo Miss Tipton was a student in a
Cincinnati school, and while there she
met Mr. Burton, then a student in a
medical college. Burton was of a good
Kentucky family, a raun of fine appearnnce,
and he soon won the young girl's
heart. By the aid of a mutual friend a
license was procured, though the girl
was not of age, and they were secretly
married. Both continued in school,
giving no outward sign of their changed
relationship. A few weeks later the
young bride was summoned to her home
to attend a sick mother. The girl herself
was seized with illness, and from
letters received during this illness, and
from the girl's talk in her delirium the
secret of the marriage was obtained.
Her parents were ^ greatly angered, and
set about to discover means to untie
the nuptial knot, and as the girl was
not of age at the time of the marriage,
and as her parents1 consent had not
been obtained, the lirst point was to have
her, immediately on coming of age, repudiate
the contract. This was accomplished
partly by coercion and partly by
persuasion. The young man was seen
and the terrors of the law were held up
to him. Young, inexperienced and fearing
the wrath of his parents, who as yet
knew nothing of the wedditfg, he consented
to a separation and a suit for divorce.
The divorce was quietly obtained
?scarcely a score of people knowing
anything of the affair. Burton went
West, and in the coursc of time Miss
Tipton married and came to this place.
Thrre years ago her husband died, leaving
a comfortable property. A notice
of the event, giving the lady's maiden
name, drifted, quite by accident, into
Burton's hands less than two monthsngo.
He had lost sight of his former
wife and sweetheart altogether, but had
never ceased to love her, and had never

the same person, and learn if possible if
she had been a willing party to the separation
years ago. He came at once to
see her. Explanations wero offered on
both sides, and, finding that each loved
the other, they resolved to marry? The
ceremony was performed quietly at the
bride's residence, her parents coming a
distance to witness it without even a suspicion
who Burton was. Other explanations
occurred later in the day, and so
far as is known no ill-will exists among
any of those who have a right to be interested.

gondolier of the better class would be a
handsome one to adopt for a fancy dress
ball, since it is very characteristic, and yet
simple and sufficiently in accordance
with a gentleman's every day suit to be
worn without awkwardness. It consists
of a loose double-breasted jacket of dark
blue cloth with trousers to match. The
jacket is closed with two-rows of large,
highly-polished brass buttons, and is
bound around the edges and around the
cuffs and collar and pockets with cloth
of a blue, two shades lighter than the
hue of the garment itself. A glazed
sailor's hat, around the crown of which
is passed a ribbon of the ligtiter stiuaes
of blue, with long floating cuds, forms
Sometimes a felt hat, with a melonshaped
crown, the brim curving over the
brow and at the back of the head, is
adopted, but the ribbon is never absent.
A sash of cloth, matching the jacketand
trousers, and with long ends lin1
ished with wide worsted fringe, is tied
around the waist, the ends falling at the
left side. Sometimes the jacket is piped
with red, or with the same dark blue as
the cloth whereof it is composed; but
the style I hayc just described is the
most usual, and is also the pretties*. It
opens at the throat, showing a collar and
white necktie, both scrupulously clean,
as are also the white cuffs visible beneath
the loose sleeves, the linen being
coarse in quality, but of snowy whiteness.
Webster's Carelessness of 3Ioney.
On another occasion Mr. Webster had
invited some friends to dinner. As ho
left home in the morning he requested
his wife to send John down to the .office
about 10 o'clock to go to market with
him. John came down accordingly.
Mr. Webster was busy writing, lie
asked Johu if he had any money. John
replied in the negative. "Then," said
Mr. Webster, "go down to Mr. Burritt
nnrl naif him tn lt>nd mc $5." (Burritt
wa9 a stationer in th? lower story.) John
came back and stated that Mr. Burritt
had not $5, but sent him $10, which Mr.
Webster took and put in his waistcoat
pocket. Pretty soon a poor woman came
in on an alms-asking errand. Said Webster,
still writing, ''I know all about it;
you've lost your husband and have five
small children and nothing to eat. Take
this!" and he gave her the ten-dollar
note which John had borrowed from Mr.
Burritt. By and by he finished his work
and remarked to his servant: "Now,
John, we'll go to market." Down they
went throngh Court and Washington
streets and Dock square to the Quincy
market, before Faneuil Ilall. Mr. Webster
bought of the butchers at the south
end of the market what suited him, but
made no payments, as he had accounts

the great lawyer, "very true;" and put
his hand in his pocket for the money to
pay the amount. Finding none, he said
to his servant: "John, I thought you
gave me some money just now?" "80 I
did, sir," said John, "but you gave it to
that poor woman who came into the office."
"Ah!" said Webster, "so I did,
but I had forgotten all about it. Well,

and come down and pay these people;
and now we will go home."?JJjsIoii
