THE WIFE'S FORETHOUGHT.
A SKETCH FOR YOUNG MARRIED PEOPLE.
ANsoN KIMBALL had been married about
three months. [is business was at tin
making, and he had a shop of his own, and
his whole stock was paid for; so he felt quite
independent, the future looking all clear and
bright. His wife was one of those mild,
loving creatures, that hang fondly upon the
interest and affections of the husband, and
whose soul may sink or swim with the for
tunes of the being it has chosen a partner.
One evening the young couple were sitting
in their comfortable apartment, the husband
engaged in reading, the, wife working busily
with her needle.
"I roust be up early to morrow morning,
Linnie, for our party starts shortly after sun
rise," said Anson, as lie laid down his paper
and leaned back iu his chair.
"'rhen you are going, are you ?" remarked
Linnie. There was just regret enough in
her tone to render her voice less lively than
usual, but it must have been a very keen
observer that could have noticed it.
"0, to be sure," returned the young man
in a gay, laughing tone. "You know the
hands in the old shop go on this salt fishing
excursion every year, and of course I must
go with them. We can't take our ladies
with us on such a trip, but you shall have
a good time to make up for it." "You
mus't-think, Anson, that I envy you the
pleasure you anticipate for I am sure that
nothing can give me more satisfaction than
to know that you are enjoying yourself."
"i believe you, Linnie, and I assure you
I shall enjoy myself on this trip exceedingly.
So you will be happy, too, eh 1"
"Certainly," returned the young wife;
but the word seemed spoken reluctantly.
"Come, come, Linnie, you don't speak
as you feel. Now, you don't want me to
go," said Anson, with a singe of disappoint
" If- you think it would be for your good
to go, of course I should want you to go."
And how can it lie otherwise ?"
"You won't be offended, Anson, if I tell
" Pooh! what an idea! I be offended with
you. No. Come, tell me your thoughts."
As the young man spoke, he moved his
chair to the side of his wife, and put his arm
about her neck.
"Well," returned Linnie, in an earnest,
yet pleasant tone,"I was thinking of the
"Ha, ha, ha! The expense. Why, it
won't be over five dollars at the farthest."
" But five dollars is considerable. You
know we are young yet, and all we have is
the house we live in and your small shop."
"And is not that enough? How many
of my young friends are there who are not
even so well off as that."
"I know we are fortunate, Anson, but
none are beyond the reach of misfortune.
For a few years we had better live as eco
nomically as possible,, with consistent enjoy
"So. I intend to; but what is five dollars
compared with the amount I shall be able
to lay up in a year?"
"Why, it will make that amount some
eight or ten dollars short."
" That is strange logic, Linnie."
"Not at all, Anson. You wvill spend five
dollars in money, and lose the time two
" So [ shall; but I tell you Linnie, I'll
wvork enough hardler for it when I come
back. So I may go, mayn't I ?"
Trhis last sentence wvas spthken playfully
and the young man kissed his- wife as he
"Of course you my," returned Linnie,
with a smile, " but I suppose I shall have to
go without a little sum I wanted."
" Howv much was it I"
" Five dollars."
"Oh, you can have that, of course, and
more, too, if you want it."
Anson Kimball took out his wallet ar~d
handed his wife a five dollar bill, and the
conversation then turned upon other and
Anson Kimball was like thousands of
others wvho are situated in like circumstan
ces. With a free and open heart, be marked
out his futa!r for a field of enjoyment with
out taking carre to make much preparation
for the sum he might be likely to meet on
And the n, again, like all others, he mis
took the character of life's real enjoyment.
He lost sight of some of the higher and
more noble sources of happiness, and dlwelt
too much in the satisfaction of the physical
appetite. True, lhe enjoyed himself, and
kept clear of all extremes, but yet he failed
to see that his' enjoyments were nearly all
ephemeral; that he was laying up little or
nothing for time to come.
A year passed away, and the annual
fishing excursion came in course along.
." Well, Linnie," said the young man, to
morrowv the boys go down the harbor and I
am going with them; of course you will
have no objections."
"No," returned the wife, in her usual
pleasant tone, "if you can afford it."
" Oh, there's no trouble about that."
" Don't you remember the conversation
we had a year ago on this same subject,"
" Yes, I remember then you talked about
saving money, but wve ain't any poorer nowv
then we should have been if I had staid at
" But tell me, Anson, have you laid up as
-much during the past year as you had expec
"Why, as for that matter, I haven't laid
up much of anything. The fact is, Linnie
you have drawn rather harder on me than
"But I hiaven't spent any more money
for trivial affairs and amusemenss than
you have, Anson, and I don't think I have
" I didn't mean to blame you, .my dear.
I only mentioned the circumstance to explain
why I had not laid up anything. But never
mind, there's time enough yet, and besides
we have enjoyed ourselves. I think after
this fishing excursion is over however, I
shall begin to dock my expenses a little, for
I must lay sp a little something the- next
" We certainly lhave every chance to
save money,"' returned Linnie, " for both
house and sliop are ours without rent, and
we are free 'rom debt,"
Anson Kimball started at that last remark,
and turned his face towards the window, but
his wife did not appear to notice his emotion.
" You know, Anson," continued Mrs.
Kimball, " that you promised me 1 should
have five dollars when) you went on another
excursion, and I shall certainly hold you to
" Of course--that's fair." returned the
-young man ; "but do you need it now ?"
"Wma nmo yo going to do with it 1"
"You won't be offended I"
" Then, to tell the truth, T owe a littl'e
sum." J -
The young man looked earnestly at his
wife, and though lie evidently- wished to say
something aboui her running in debt, yet
for reason best known to himself, he kept
quiet, and handed over the five dollars.
Anson joined his old schoolmates on their
excursion, and when he returned, lie thought
some about beginning to cut off some of his
unnecessary expenses, but lie introduced no
new system of operations. Two or three
times he did refrain from indulging some pet
ty appetite but he soon settled back into the
old track, and the small bits of money slip
ed away as fast as ever.
Three years had passed away since the
yonng couple were married, and few could
have wished for more social comfort than
they had enjoyed during the greater part of
that time. For a month or two, however,
the young man had been gradually growing
more sober and thoughtful, until he at length
had become really sad and down hearted.
His wife had endeavored to cheer him up,
though she was gnable to learn the cause of
One evening, just before dusk, Linnie saw
two men pass her window and enter her
husband's shop. One of them she knew to
be the sheriff, and the circumstance troubled
her not a little. She waited half an hour
for her husband to come to supper. but lie
did not appear, and her sufferings began to
be accute.-A thousand -conjectures flitted
through her mind, but they brought no con
solation, and at length she determined to go
to the shop door aid see if she could not
overhear something of what was passing
within, feeling that such a course would at
least be pardonable.
Linnie stole out from her front door and
went towards the shop. She placed her
ear to the keyhole and listened, but she
could only hear an indistinct hum of voices,
among which was that of her husband.
The latter was evidently supplicating, for
his tones were earnest and impassioned.
Soon thee was a movement of feet towards
the door, and Linnie hastened back to the
house. Ere long her husband en:ered. Hie
looked pale and troubled, and with a nervous
movement of the muscles of his face, as
though he would have concealed the grief
that bore him down, he took his seat at the
Poor Linnie watched her companion with
an anxiety almost agonizing ; but she spoke
not a word until alter Anson had set back
from the table. The food remained almost
utouched upon his plate when lie moved
away, and he would have left the house had
not his wife stopped him.
" Husband," she said, in a soft, gentle
tone, at the same time laying her hand upon
his arm, and gazing imploringly into his
face, " what is it that troubles you
Nothing, Linnie," half fretfilly returned
he, and he mado a motion as if to remove
his wife's hand from his arm.
" There is something, Anson, I know
there is. Come do not keep it from me."
"There is nothing that you need know."
" But a wife need know all that can af
eet her husband thus. What is it, Anson ?"
" It is nothing but my own business and
a wile need not know all that."
T[his answer was harsh, and tears gushed
to Linnie's eyes.
" My dear husband," she said in tender
accents, " to wvhom, oh ! to whom should
you tell your sorrows, if not to her who
loves you better than life itself."
" Forgive me, forgive me, Linnie-I meant
not to wound your feelings. I am very
iserable, and I hardly knowv what I said."
" Then tell me all. Come, sit down in
my easy chair, for your browv is hot anid
T 'here nowv tell me.
After the young man had taken the prof.
ferd seat, lie gazed for a moment into the
face of his wife, and a look of deep anguish
rested upon his features.
" Linnie," he said, " [ may as well tell
you all, but you must not chide me, nor must
you despond, for all is not as dark as might
be. I am deeply in debt, and to-morrow
my shop, and all that it contains wvill be
advertised by the sheriff for sale."
"In debt," murmured the wife.
"Yes. During the last t wo years I have
been purchasing stock on credit, and pamying
for it as it has been convenient. At first it
seemed an easy wvay of doing business, but
it has proved fatal; for when I received the
pay for my goods I forgot, or at least did not
ufficiently heed, that all that money wats
not mine. I forgot that more than half of
all the money I received belonged to the
men of wvhom I had purchmased stoek. Twvo
notes fell due the day before yesterday, the
man to whom I gave them sold them in the
way of business to a Western firm, and now
they must be paid. To-morrow an oflicer
wvil be placed at my shop, and nearly every
thing will have to be sold. It is not the loss
of my stock and tools that I care so much
about, for I have health and strength anid I
ai earn more, but it is the disgrace of the
thing. To think that [ should fall like this
me-a healthy, stout good mechanic."
" How muc-h do you owve!" asked Linnie,
in a trembling voice.
" Both notes amount to four hundred
" And haven't you any part of it ?"
" Only about fifty dollars that I can col
" And if those twvo notes were paid, you
would be safe I"
" Then thank God, you will not suffer !"
exclaimed Linnie. And overcome by her
feelings she sank upon her husband's neck
and burst into a flood of tears.
" Linnie, Linnie," cried the young man,
what do you mean I"
" Wait a moment, my husband."
The wife brushed the tears from her cheek
as she spoke and left the room, and in a few
moments returned bearing in her hand a
small book. There was a bright smile upon
her face, and her husband looked upon her
with utter astonishment.
" Here my husband," she said stepping to
his side, and placing the book in his hand,
at the same time winding her arm about his
neck, "if you carry that to the bank they
will give you three hundred and seventy-five
dollars for it."
" Three hundred and seventy-five dollars !"
repeated the astounded man, hardly crediting
the evidence of his owvn senses.
"Yes, Anson," returned the wife, sinking
into her husband's lap. "'IThat is nmoney
that I have been laying. up during the last
" You laid it up, Linnie t But where
coul you have got it."
" You gave it to me yourself to spend for
trifles. You know I have claimed my share
of such money. Do not blame me, Ansq i,
but I feared that you did not attach sufficient
importance to the aggregate of the small
sums you were almost: daiily spend'inig.
"Once or twice I would have remnonstra
it. I was but a young girl, and I feared to
set up a will against my husband, so I re
orted to this means of proving my position.
0, my dear husband, you cannot know
what sweet pleasure I experience now in
finding that my experiment has been means
of such good."
" If your pleasure is equal to mine then
you must be happy, indeed," exclaimed An
son, as he drew his found wife to his bosom.
" God bless you, Linnie, and make me able
to repay you for this. Now I see to whom
you have owed the little debts you have
sometimes contracted, and which I have
helped you pay."
" Yes," returned Linnie, with a smile; it
was to you I owed them. And yet," she ad
ded, with a meaning look, and in a lower
tone of voice, " I have not drawn so much
from the amusement fund as-"
" 1 ush, Linnie ; I know I have spent more
than I was aware of, but niy eyes are open
now and I see it all."
" And you do not blame me for what I
have done I"
" Blamo you I" exclaimed Anson, imprin
ting a warm kiss upon his wife's brow.
"Let my future course show you how fond
ly you are cherished, and how faithfully I
will be guided by your judgment.
On the next day Anson Kimball paid off
those who would have sold his stock, and
had the pleasure of tearing his two notes in
pieces. He spent no more money fooli-hly,
and as he found the products of his labor
beginning to gather in his hands, his house
grew brighter, and his enjoyments increased.
By steady degrees he rose to a position of
honorable affluence, but through all his suc
cesses he never lost sight of the gratitude he
owed the gentle faithful being, who had first
opened his eyes to a knowledge of the se
cret of success, and saved him from pecuni
ary disgrace He was an honored and res
pected man, but he felt he owed it all to his
The subject of common schools has for
the last two or three years engaged much of
the attention of the people of this State.
With the view of eliciting the opinion of
our brethren of the press, we give the amend
ment offered by the Hon. J. 1. MIDDL.roN
to the bill of Mr. Tucx ai at the last session
of the Legislature. The feature of the
amendment to which we desire to call the
attention of the press, and our readers
generally, is the method proposed to raise
the fund by which the benefits of the common
school system shall be extended to the peo
ple of the several districts. We do not
regard the amendment, taken in connection
with existing laws on the subject as a suffi
cient remedy of the defects at the present
" free schtuoll system," but we thinak the
characteristic features of Mr. MIDDLETON's
amendment should be engrafted upon any
system, which may hereafter be adopted by
We shall not do more at present than thus
briefly to vindicate our preference for what
we regard the distinguishing tendency of the
amendment. At another time we may speak
more at large upon the amendment in con
nection with the bill to which it was offered
as a substitute.
Offered by Mr. Middleton, to a Bill to es
tablish Boards of Direction for Common
Schools, and for other purposes.
SEc. 1. That the Annual Appropriation
for the Free Schools throughout the State
shall be thirty-seven thousand two hundred

SEc. Ill. That whenever Satisfat tory
proot shall be produced to the Comptroller
General, that fluy Board of Commissioners
of Free Schools shall have assessed and
cllected any sum of money in the district,
fr the put pose of improving their school

authorized and required, to pay ever to saidl
Board of~ Commissioners a like sum of montey
to be by them expended, and accounted for
at the Court of Common Pleas .for the
district at Fall term.
SEC. [V. That it shall be the duty of the
several Boards of Commissioners of Free
Schools also to report to the said Court, a

Howv universal is it. We never knewv the
man who would say, " I am contented." Go
where you will, among the rich or the poor
the man of competence or the manm who
earns his bread by the daily sweat of his
brow, you hear the sound of murmuring
and the voice of complaint. The other day
we stood by a cooper who was playing a
merry tune with an adze round a cask.
A ! (sighed lie,) tme is a hard lot-forever
trotting round like a dog, driving a hoop."
" Heigho, sighed a blacksmith, one of the
hot days, as he wiped away the drops of per
spiration from his brow, while the red hot
iron glowed upon his anvil, this is life with
a vengeance-melting and frying one's self
over the fire."
" Oh, that I were a carpenter, ejaculated
a shoematker, as he bent over his lap stone.
Here I am, day after day, wvorking my soul
aay in making soles for other., cooped up
in a seven by nine room.
" I am sick of ontt door work, (exclaims
the carpenter,) boiling and swelterin~g under
the sun, or exposed to the inclemency of the
weather. If I w~as only a tailor."
" This is too bad, (perpetually cries the
tailor,) to be compelled to sit perched up
here. plaiving the n edlr' all ihe while-would
tha;t mine werea more active life."
"Last day of grace-the banks wont dis
cour - - u ..mer wi't pay.-what shall I
do ?" grumbles the rnerchanL "I had rather
be a truck-horse, a dog-anything."
"Happy fellows," groi'ns the lawyer, as
he scratches his head or - some perplexing
case, or pours over some dry record," happy
fellows, I had rather hammer stone than cud

And through all the ramifications of snei
ety, all are complaining of their condition,
finding fault with their particular calling.
If I were only this or that, or the other, I
should be content, anything but what I am,
is the universal cry. So wags the world,*so
it has wagged, and so it will wag.
