ONLY A BUTTON.
BY AM RANDOLPII.
A cheerful south room, with a
bay-window -full of blossoming
plants ; a bright fire glowing be.
Ahind a burnished grate ; a carpet
*hose soft, velvet pile was shaded
in blues and wooden colors, to cor
-rspond with the damask-covered
furniture; and-a little gilded clock,
which had just struck nine at
night-all these things met Mrs.
Chickorly's eye as she laid down
lier book, and yawned as widely
as her -ripe eherry mouth would
-She was a plump, fair-faced ma
tron of some four or five and twen
-ty; with bright auburn hair, soft
blue eyes, and a complexion whose
ises stood in need of no artificial
i'eage to heighten their charms,
.wsile her dress of soft crimson
terin> was exquisitely adapted to
the"semi-blonde style. 'Fanny,'
ud Mr. Chickerly, looking up
from his newspaper, 'did you call
a those Carters to-day ?'

'And. they leav.e town to-morrow
.soring; and Carter is absurdly
sensitive to alf slight, fancied or
reaL. Fanny I desired you to
make a poirt of calling.'
'Weil, I did intend to, Frank,'
ponted trs. Chickerly, 'but one
can't think of evcrything?
'You cannot, it seems.'
==t appears to me that you are
making a.mountid out of a mole
hil,' said. Fanny, rather tartly.
'It -may effect my business very
seriously. Carter's house carries
great influence with it.'
Mrs. Chickerly was silent, pat

A ant Eiizabeth's will ?'
'Oh I wouldnt Frank.'
'Why not ?'
'It is sneh bitter cold weather
to travel in ; and Aunt Elizabeth
is such a whimsical old woman, it's
as likely as not that she'll change
her mind about mnaking a will when
you get there. I would wait a
little, -if' I were yon.'
Mr. Chiecerly smiled.
'That would be your sy-stem of
doing things, Fanny, but not
'My system, Frank ! What do
you mean ?'
'I mean that you believe in put
ting things off' indefinitely, and
not always in the wisest manner.
I 7ish you would break yourself
of' that habit, Fanny. Believe
me, it will some day bring you to
Mrs. Chickerly contracted her
'I don't believe in being lectured,
'And I don't very often lecture
you, my dear; pray give me credit
'You didn't think yon were mar
rying an angel when you took me,
'No, my love. I thought I was
msarrying a very pretty little girl,
whose few faults might easily be
'Faults! Have I any great faults,
tLittle faults may sometimes en
tail great coneuces Fanny.'
'If you scold any more,I shall go
out of the room.'
'You need not for I am going
myself to pack my valise. By
the way, there's a button off the
shirt I want to wear to-morrow.
I wish you would come up stairs
and sew it on for me.'
'I will, presently.'
'Why can't you come now ?'
'I just want to finish this book ;
there's only one- more chapter.'
And Fanny of>ened her volume
so resolutely that her husband
thought it best not to contest the
.Sittin.g all alone in front of' the
bright fire, Mrs. Chickerly grad.
nally grew drowsy, and before she
knew it she had drifted off into
the shadowy regions of dream
She was aroused by the clocl
'Dear me ! how late it is!' sh<
thought, with a little start. 'J
must go up stairs immediately
There, I forgot to tell cook aboul
having breakfast to-morrow morn
ing, and of course she's abed an(
asleep by this time. I'll be ul
early enough to see to it myself
that will be just as well.'
And laying this salvo to he]
conscience, Mrs. Chiekerly turnet
off the gas, and crept drowsily ul
'Fanny, Fanny, it's past five
and cook hasn't come down stair
yet. Are you sure you spoke t<
her last night?"
Mrs. Chickerly rubbed her eyei
and stirted sleepily around.
'Qh, Frank, I forgot all abon
speKking to her last night,' sb
eried with conscience face. 'Ba
I'll run right up-she can hav<
the breakfast ready in a very fev
She sprang out of bed, thrus
her feet into a pair of silk-linet
-slippers, and threw a shawl ove3
Mr. Chickerly bit his lip, anc
'No need, Fanny,' he said, a lit
tic bitterly, 'I must leave the bous(
in fifteen minutes, or miss the onl3
through train.. It's of no use t<
speak to cook'now.'
'I am.so sorry, Frank.'
Mr. Chickerly did not answer
he was apparently absorbed it
turning over the various articlei
in his bureau drawer, while Fann3
sat shivering on the edge of the
bed, cogitating how hard it wa:
for her husband to start on a long
journey that bitter morning with
out any breakfast.
-I can make a cup of coffee try
self over the furnace fire,' she ex
claimed, - springing to her feet
But Mr. Chickerly again inter
'Sit - down, Fanny please.
would rather you would sew thi
button on the neck of my shirt
I have packed the others-thoso
that are fit to wear. I have shirt'
enough, but none in repair.'
Fanny crimsoned as she remem
bered how often in the course o:
the last month or two, she hac
solemnly promised herself to de
vote a day to the much-needc<
renovation of her husband's shirts
She looked round for her thimble
'I left it down stairs last night
I'll get it in a minute!l'
The housemaid had just kindle<
a fire in the sitting-room grate; i
was blazing and crackling cheeril2
among the fresh coals, and Fann2
could not resist the temptation o
pausing a moment to wvarm he:
cold fingers, and watch the green
ish-purple spires of flame sho
merrily up the chimney, untii sh<
heard her husband's voice calling
her imperatively :
'Fanny! Fanny what are yoi
'Oh, dear:' thought the wife, al
she ran up stairs, 'I wish Franl
wouldn't be so cross. He's always
in a hurry.'
Little Mrs. Chickerly neve:
stopped to think that the reaI rea
son was that she, his wife, wai
never in a hurry.
The needle threaded, the thim
ble fitted on, an appropriate but
ton was next to be selected.
'Oh, dear, Frank, I haven't oni
the right size!'
'Sew on what you have, then
but be quick!I'
But Fanny was quite eertair
there was 'just the rigfit button,
somewhere in hei *&k-basket
and stopped to search foi~ it.:
'There, I told you so!'.she cried
triumphantly holding it up on th4
point of her needle.
'Well, well, sew it on quick, said
Mr. Chickerly, glancing at hii
'That's just your worrying way
Frank ; as if anybody could sew
button on well in a hurry. There
my needle has come unthreaded !
'Oh,*Fanny, Fanny !' sighed he:
husband, fairly ot of patieiee al
last,- 'why didn't you' do it Iasi
xrrgh.t, as I begge of you ? I shal
miss the train ; arnd. what httk
chance we had in Aunt Elizabeth'i
will, will be sacrificed: to you:
miserable habit of being always
he'Mn,l E~r& 2
Fanny gave him the shirt, and
began to whimper a little, but Mr.
Chickerly had neither the time
[ nor the inclination to pause to
sooth her petulant manifestation
of grief. He finished his dressing, 1
- caught up his valise with a hur- I
riedly spoken good-bye,' and ran
down stairs, two steps at a time,
into the street.
'There he goes,' murmured Fan- 1
ny; 'and he's gone away cross
I with me, and all for nothing but a 1
miserable button ! I wish there
wasn't such a thing as a button in
the world!' (A wish which we much I
misdoubt, many another wife than 1
Mrs. Fanny Chickerly has echoed
with perhaps better reason.)
Mrs..Chickerly was sitting down
to her little dinner a la solitaire,
with a daintily brown chicken, a
tumbler of currant jelly, and a
:curly bunch of celery ranged be
fore her, when, to her -surprise,
the door opened. and in walked
her lord and husband.
'Why Frank, where on earth
did you come from ?' cried the as
'From the office,' coollyanswered
I Mr. Chickerly.
'But I thought you were off for
- Scenersville, in such a hurry.'
'I found myself just five minutes
too late of the train, after having
run all the way to the depot.'
'Oh, that was too bad.'
Chickerly smiled a little as he
begsrh to stve.the eikkn.
'Yes, I was a little annoyed
at first ; it did -seem rather pro
voking to be kept at home by only
'What are you going to do?'
'Why I shall make a second
'I'll see to it that your breakfast
is ready this time, to the second,
and all your wardrobe in trim,
said Fanny, rather relieved at the
prospect of a chance of retrieving
'You need not. I have engaged
a room at a hotel near the depot.
I can't run any more risks.'
le did not speak unkindly, and 1
yet Fanny felt that he was deeply
displeased with her.
r 'We will not discuss the matter
I any further, my love, if you please.
- I have resolved to say nothing
I more to you abo-ut reforms. I see
it is useless, and it only tends to
foster an unpleaeant state of feel
ings between us. Shall I help you
to some maearoni!'
[ And fairly silenced, Fanny ate
her dinner with what appetite was
Three days afterwards, Mr.
t Chickerly once more made his en
trance, just at dusk, carpet-bag in
-hand, as Fanny sat enjoying the
ruddy shine of the coal-fire and
the consciousness of having per
formed her duty in the mending
and general renovation of her bus
band's drawer-full a fCshrts-a job
which she had long been dreading
'Well, how is Aunt Elizabeth ?!
Squestioned Fanny when her hus
band, duly welcomed and greeted,
had seated himself in the opposite
S'Dead,' was the brief reply.
'Dead ! Oh, Frank! Of her old
enemy, appoplexy ?'
'Was her will made ?'
'It was. Apparently she had
expected me, on the day she her
self appointed, and on my non-ar
rival in the only train that stops,
she sent for the village lawyer,
made her will, and left all her
property to the orphan asylum in
Scenersville, with a few .bitter
words.to the effect that the neg
lect of her only living nephew had
induced her on the spur of the
moment, to alter her original in
tention of leaving it to- him. She
died the very next morning.'
'Oh, Frank, how much was it ?'
pThere was a moment or two of
silene, and then Mr. Chickerly
'You see, Fanny, how much tha'.t
dissing butten has cost me!'
1Fanny Chickerly sat like one
condemned, by the utteranee of1
her own conscience. Not alone
the one missing button, but the
scores-nay hundreds-of' trifling
ponements which made her life
)ne endless endeavor td catch up,
with the transpiring iesent,
seemed to present themselves be
bre her mind's eye. What would
his end in ? Was not the present
esson sufficiently momentous to
each her to train herself in a dif.
erent school? She rose, and came
o her husband's side, laying one
remulous hand on his shoulders.
'There shall be no more missing
uttons, my love,' she said, earn
He comprehended all that she
eft unspoken, and silently pressed
,he little hand in his own; and
lot a word was said more than
his upon the subject.
But it was not forgotten. Fan

n the garden of her life. And

Four Hundred Miles U,p
"Reading about electricity, light.
niag dild the telegraph, the other
day," said Uncle Ieter, "reminded
me of a curious story I once heard,
when I was in England."
It seems there was a newspaper
in the city of Glasgow, in Scotland,
which employed a London corres
pondent. The correspondent made
it his duty to gather. the news
every day and send it to Glasgow
every night by telegraph.
He made an agreement with an
operator at a certain office, by
which his news was sent to Glas
gow at a redaction by the year.
One night he arrived- at the
lower door, at the foot of the
stairs leading up into the telegraph
office. The door was locked, and
he could not open it.
The telegraph office was way
up to the top of the building in
the sixth story. The operator
had a bed there, to which he re
tired promptly at three o'clock;
and now it was half-past two.
The operator up stairs yawned
and looked at his watch. "Jen.
kins won't come to-night," said
he, 't may as well go to bed."
And there was poor Jenkins all
the time pounding away on the
door at the foot of the long stairs
unable to get in.
"Hillo! up there !" he cried,
looking at the window of the-tole
graph office, that glowed . with
light. "illo Jones? Somebody
has locked the outside door and I
can't get in."
"What's the row ?".said a police
"I'm locked out," said Jenkins.
"Hero I've got a batch of the
most important news for- my ps
per-a murder, three fifes and a
riot-and the door locked in my
face, and I can't get in. What
will I do ?"
So the policeman began banging
at the door, but Jones, the opera
tor, up in his office, was as -an
conscious of the tumult as if it had
been in the moon. He was whist
ling to himself and yawning pro
"Why don't you go to some
bother office?" asked the polio.
"No authority to use any other
line," said the correspondent. ".Ah I
I've got it !" he added, and before
the policeman could aek what "it
was" the 'excited Jenkins had
dashed off down the street as if a
mad dog was after him.
Jenkins rashed breathlessly in
to another telegraph office, six
"I say !" said he to the operator,
"I'min afixl Got news to go off
inside of half an hour, and the
stupid operator at my office has
gone to sleep, anid I can't get in
"Well, that is a fix."
"Tell you what I want." said
Jeakins, endeavoring to catch his
breath, "I want you to telegraph
down to Glasgow, and ask the op
erator there to telegrah up here to
Jones, and bid him come down
stairs and let me in I"
The operator roared with langh
ter at this, but went at once to his
instrument and began rattling away
at a great rate.
This is the message he sent:
"Glasgow. Wake up Jones,
Station X. ; tell him Jenk~ins at the
foot of the stairs can't get in."
Jones was looking at his watch
again, and concluded that.be had
better put out the lights and go to
his little !)ed.room across the hall
way, when. clatter ! went h'is in
"There's Glasgow calling fite,"'
said Jones, and hurried to his in
strument anid tricked off
Back came the answer.
"Jenkins down .'tairs - door
fast-go let hini in."
Off wentlcdnes viith arfsh down.
stafrsthred open the doorm-~and
ait lai thre anxious ye'nking got up
and sent off his iieirs.
So you see how a man sent a
message through a solid door, and
