thinking only of Nettie.
You must know I was in love with Slo
Nettie Burns; and nearly two thirds of '
the inalc members of the commurity th<
where I lived were in the same pleasant beli
t predicament. Bat I had loved her as lik

frons the time when I was seven and she 'Bu
was three. And then, when we grew ti

because I was afraid! cal
As we rode home togetLher, Nettie oft
ibatted gaily, while- I was s1h:mt and sev

(miuster up courage to deliver that mo- he

'Good right !'said I, huskily, though
joyjulily, for I saw her put both hanls at

Thme next day I waitedaxosyfrn

Nettie, and she never made the least al- m

a very hanudsoime sum in bonds, and was
-o(n the easy road to wealth. But there n<li
was still a blank place in my heart that th
ino wealth could cover. And thn gh I e

Electricity is to be reduced from its
proud potition as a messenger between
the continents to the humble uses of do
mestic life. It i. to be made an ei rand
boy toznswer every hoii.ehold call.
A company has been formed in New
York which proposes to establili otct s
at convenient places, in various parts of
that city and Brooklyn, whence mes
sengers can be sent on demand to any
house witi the respective dikricts
These offiecs are to be connected by tele- i
graph wiis with the houzes of such per
sons as pay a certain amount monthly
(two dollars and fifty cents) f*r the ben
efits offered by the comp1ny. The oc
cupaint of a houoe by touching a key will
-simlply give 11tice at th office that a
messenger is wanted. The offiees will
be iinaerous, aol so distributed that
any houNe can be reached by a negzen

be apprecilted u11til it has become, as we

in all largu cities. There are thousands

Behind the Scenes.
I don't know which is the most cu
-ious study, the little world before or
he other little world behind the scenes.
Perhaps you think there is nothing in
eresting in the conduct of an audience,
md yet the man in the box-office of a
heatre will tell you, if you get hold of
im some time when he has a dull night,
very curious story about the pleasure
eekers. I was in the little clubby.
louse at Wallack's not long ago with my
'rirnd Livingstone, and Mr. Moss pointed
)ut to us the box oice museum. It was
collection of u ticlhs picked up in the
heatre after the awience had left it.
\ow you will immediately guess what
0me of those articles were. Hair-pins,
nd garters, and peni-ies, you know
bound wherever men and women con
1regate, ind handkerchiefs are always
Kitng iicedl up in churches and thea
res. But the collection included night
eCVs, gl rin, faro-checks, playing
:ard-, false cm!s, reieeu'es, enrd cases,
nd toth-pieks. We can even tinder
tand how these things may be dropped

A dogcoli:ir, to->, tby all that's odd, with
"Fido" on its brass-!ate ; and a bottle
oif "co'l cram," ami a paper (if brass

astonishi us when we :is,:ertain that the
lap-dogs th..-mselves are some timies left
behind, and M:. Moss has to send out for
milk and other de'ieavies and turn the
b.Oloce itito a nursery until the wat
ing-maid comes, as shie inevitably does
the next day, with a warm blanket over
her at in, and reclaims the darling with
tears in her eyes. Then we have a safe
key ! what a tin!e of carelessness, and
reprimand, ami snzpiciin that tells; and
a batik book, and Colt's revolver, with
all the barrels loaded except one, and
that one smoked and begritted. It is
fanciful to suppose that some cunning
miscreant whose victim was duly report.

MAK NO MAN FEE. is INEIZOITY.
-Nothing is more insulting than to
take pains to make a man feel a mor
tifying inferiority in knowledge, rank,
foitune, etc. In the first it is both ill- r
bred and ill-natured, and in the two I
Ltter articles it is unjust, they not be- I
ing in his power. Good breeding anid
ood nature incline us rather to raise
cople up to ourselves than to mortify
and depress them. Besides, it is making r
ourselves so many friends, instead of
so many enemies. A constant attention
to please is a most necessary ingredient
in the art of pleasing; it flatters the self. a
love of those to whom it is shown ; it 1
engages and captivates more than things c
of much greater importance. E% ery 1:
man is, in iome measure, obliged to
discharge the s(cial duties of life; but
these atteitions are vo!int:ir3 acts, the
free-will offerings of good breedi,.g and
good nature ; they are received, remem.
bered, and returned as such. Women,
in particular, have a right to them; and.
any oni.sion in that resiecet is down.

sE3sm.ANcEs.-A brief Ltiter from ])or
chester, Massachusetts, to the BOw.to;n
Advertiser, tells the foi!owilg:
"There are in this town t,%o twin bro
thers, whose reseniblance to each otlier
is so strong that strang,rs can hardly
tell then apart. They keep a rocery I
and provision store, and were one day
bringing in bags of meal from a agun,
which was out of sight froni inide Ih
sre. N than had his coat oni, but Ei
Was in his shirt sleeves. A stranger in
the shop watched them coning in and
going out onle after the other, but onl%
one was visible at a time, anid at last he
x,lained to Eli, 'Well, you're the smart
est man I ever saw ; but % by do you
keep putting on and taking off you,
coat?' The.e brotbers and several oter t
nen were in the hal-it of getting up ver- i
early and going to swim in the 'Reser
vtir Pond,' and once E'i going, as wa,
his wont, to Nathan's house to call hIm, .
by tapping on the pane, saw his own
lace refleeted from the glass, atd taki-g
it for his brother, called out 'Conie on;
they're all waiting for you.' "
A LirE SAMD.-Dun Pia:t tells the
following story : "A Sunday School su
pt!rintendent out in Alabka treatei his
entire charge to a sleigh ride. There
were just 41 of the cherubs and a six i
horse sleigh. On the way home they
were beset by a pack of ferocious wolves.
Cool and collected in that hour of fear
ful trial, the heroic superintendent saw
at a gitnce that he must be. overtaken.
in an instant his quick mind seized the
only chiance of escape. Seiz;ng the child
that al. ays sung "I wart to be an an
ael !" two notes too high, he flung it at
the rapaciotus horde. It stayed their on
ward rush for a moment. Next came
the little boy whlo nev-er brought any
pen:nies to the heathen. And so on
sweput the pursued and pursuers until
the last infant was exhausted. But the
brave fellow had economized his material
nobly, and besides a whole Sunrday
school slows off'a pack of wolves percep
tibly. We have always noticed this.
in another moment the sleigh dashed in
to the village, and the grand, noble, true
Ihearted mian knew he was saved !
