TiLE BEST WIFE.
'The best little wife in thp
world !' said Herbert Ainscourt.
'Of course-I dare say,' respond
ed Mr. Portcross. 'But what's
your exact idea of the best wife in
the world ? Jones says he's got
the best wife in the world, because
she keeps his stockinp darned.
takes him to church three times
of a Sunday, and never lets him
have an idea of his own. Jenkins
says he's got the same identical
article ; but .Jenkins' wife keeps
all the money, draws his salary
for him, and makes him live in
the back kitchen because the pai'
lr is too good,for the family use.'
'Obh! but Daisy isn't a bit ogre
ish-a little,subm issive, soft-voiced
ting, that hasn't an idea except
what is reflected from me. I tell
you what, old fellow, I'm master
of my own house ; I come when I
please, and go when I please.
Daisy noter ventures on a word
'Then you ought to be ashamed
of yourself, larking around at the
clubs as you do, dissipated bache
lor fashion ?'
'Ashamed ! w bat of ?'
'Why, I suppose you owe some
duties to your wife ?'
'Where's the harm? My wife
'.Proba bly you think so because
she is quiet and submissive; but
if she were to object-'
'Object !'I'd liko to hear her try
'Now, look here, Ainscourt, your
wife may be a model wife, but you
ertainly are not a model husband.
People are beginning to talk about
the way you 'neglect t,hat pretty
little blue-eyed girl.'
'i'll thank people to mind their
own business. Neglect her, in
deed ! Why, man, I love her as I
love my own soul.'
'Then, why don't you treat her
as if you did ?'
'Oh, come, Porteross, that ques
tion shows whbat a regular old bach
elor you are. It won't do to make
too mueb of your wife, unless you
want to spoil her.'
Mr. Poitcross shook his head.
That sounds selfish. I don't
like the ring of that metal.'
And he went away, leaving Mr.
Ainscourt to finish his game of
billiards at leisure.
'What a regular old fuss-budget
Portross is," laughed the latter.
'Always poking his nose in to some
body else's business. There's
one comfort-I never pay any at
tentionl to what he says.'
Manwrhile Mrs. Ainscourt was
sitting a:one in her drawing-room,
her too little white hands locked
tightly in one another, and her
fair head slightly drooping-a del
icate little apple blo;som of a wo
man, with blue, wistful eyes and
curly flaxen hair, looking more
like a grown-up child than a wife
of twenty.ene summers.
'Oh, dear!' siged Daisy. 'It is
so dull here. I wish Herbert
would come home. He never
spends any time with me now-a
days, and I practice all his favorite
songs, and read the newspapers,
so. I can talk about the things
he's interested in, and try so tard
to. be entertaining. It's very
And then her oval face bright
ened into sudden brilliance, and
the sparkles stole into her eyes;:
for the quick ear had detected her
husband's footsteps on the stairs.
The next moment he came in.
-Well, pet, bow are you?' with
a playful pinch of her cheek.
Tbere are some bonbons for you.
Where are my light gloves '
'Oh, Herbert ! you are not going
away again ?'
'1 must, Daisy. There are a lot
of fellows going to drive to High
Bridge; and I'm one of the party.
You can go over to my mother's
for dinner,.or send for one of your
friends, or something. There,
good-bye, puss, I'm in a deuce of a
And with one careless kiss
pressed on the quivering damask
rose of a mouth that was lifted up
to him, he wa-; gone.
Daisy Ainscourt neither went
to her mother-in-law, nor sent for
I one of her girl friends. She spent
the evening all alone, pondering
on the shadow which was fast
overgrowing her life.
'What shall I do ?' thought the
little timid, shrinking wife. 'h,
what shall I do '
But, child as she was, Daisy had
a strong, resolute woman's heart
within her, nor was she long in
coming to a decision.
'Daisy,' said her husband to her
the next day, 'you haven't any ob
jections to my attending the Orion
Bal Masque ?'
'Are masked - balls nice places,
'Oh, yes, everybody goes ; only
1 thought I'd pay you the com
pliment of asking you whether
you disapproved or not.'
'Can I go with you ?'
'Well-abemn-not very well this
time, -Daisy. You see Mrs. Pen
phurch really hinted so strongly
for me to take her, that I couldn't
'Very well,' assented Daisy,
meekly, and Herbert repeated
within himself the pman of praises
he had chanted in Mr. Portcross's
ear: 'The best little wife in the
But, notwithstsnding gl! this,
Mr. Ainscourt was not exactly
pleased, when at the self-same Bal
Masque, during the gay period of
unmasking, he saw his wife's in
nocent face crowr'ing the pic
turesque costume of a Bavarian
'Hallo!' he ejaculated, rather un
graciously, 'youa here ?'
'Yes,' lisped Daisy, with a girl
ish smile. ,'You said everybody
went ! And, oh, Herbert, isn't it
Mr. Ainscourt said nothing
more, but Mrs. Fenchurch found
him a very stupid companion for
the remeind,r of the evening.
He was late at dinn.er the next
day ; but, late as he was, he found
himself more punctual than his
wife, and the solitary meal was
half over before Mrs. Daisy tripped
in, her cashmere shawI trailing
over her shoulders, and her dim
pled cheeks all pink with the fresh
'Am I behind time ? Really, I
am so, sorry ! But we have been
drivin'g in the park, and-'
'We! Wno are we!' growled
'Why, Colonel Adair and I--the
Colonel Adair that you go out
with so much.'
'Now, look here, Daisy!I' ejacu
lated Mr. Ainscourt, risig~g from
the table and pushingAack his
chair, 'Adair isn't exadtly thbe man

'J3ut you go everywhere with
'I dare say- but you and 1 are
two different persons.'
'Now, dear Herbert,' interposed
Daisy, willfully misunderstanding
him, 'you know I never was a bit
proud, and the associates that are
good enough for my husband are
good enough for me. Let me give
you a few more oysters.'
Ainscourt looked sharply at his
wife. Was she really in earnest,
or was there a mocking under
current of satire in her tone!
But he could not decide, so art
less was her countenance.
'I'll talk to her about it some
tine,' was his internal decision.
'Daisy,' he said, carelessly,' when
dinner was over, 'I've asked old
Mrs. Barberry to come and spend
the day with you to-morrow.'
'Oh, have you? I'm sorry, for
I am engaged out to-morrow.'
'Oh, at Delmonico's. I've joined
a Women's Rights Club, and we
meet there to organize.'
'The deuce take women's rights!'
ejaculated the irate husband.
'Or course I don't believe in
them, but it's the fashion to be
long to a club, and such a nice
place to go evenings. I am dull
bere evenings, Hferbert,'
Herbert's heart smote him, but
he answered resolutely:
'1 beg you will give up this
ridiculous idea. What do women
want of clubs ?'
'What men do, I suppose.'
'But I don't approve of it at

went on Daisy. 'It is a false ex-,

SAV&GE MODES OF PRAYER.
The Sioux Indians abusing their
Great Spirit for sending them
storms, or the Kamschddals curs
ing Kutka for having created the
mountains so high and the streams
so rapid, expose a state of thought
relating to the gods which is most
difficult to reconcile with the
savage's habitual dread of them,
but which is too well authenti
cated to admit' of doubt. Franklin
saw a Cree hunter tie offerings
(a cotton handkerchief, looking
glass, tin pan, some ribbon, and
tobacco), to the value of twenty
skins, 'round an image of the god
Kepoochikan, at the same time
praying to him in a kapid, mono
tonous tone, to be pr'o.pitious, ex
plaining to him the value of his
presents, and strongly cautioning

them, would pull down from theiri

Some Algonkin Indians, mis- a

departed chiefs (thought to pre
side over the growth of yams and
fruits), after the first fruits of veg
etation had b6en deposited on a
stone, on the branch of a tree, or
on a rude altar of sticks, would
pray, "Coin passionate father, here
is some food ; eat it and be kind
to us on account of it ;" and in
Samoa too, a libation of ava at the
evening meal was the offering, in
return for which the father of a
family would beg of the gods
health and prosperity, productive
ness for his plantations, and for
his tribe generally a strong afid
large population for war. In Fiji,
again, when the chief priests and
leading men assembled to discuss
pablic affairs in the yaquona or ka
va circle, the chief herald, as the
water was poured into the kava, af
ter naming the gods for whom the
libation was prepared, would say,

sun shice fortb ;" nd again~when
the portion was ready, "Let the
gods be of a gracious mind, and
send a wind from the east."
HINTS TO THOSE CALLING
UPON THE SICK.
1. Only call at the door, unless
you are sure your friend is able to
see you without barm.
2. Enter- aid leave the house,
and mov- about the room, quietly.
3, Carry a cheerful face ; and
speak cheerful words.
4. In order to cheer, you need
5. If your friend is very sick,
do not fall into gay and careless
talk in the attempt to be oheerful,
6. Don't ask questions, and thus
4blige your friend to talk.
7. Talk about something out
side, and not about the disease and
3ircumstances of the patient.
8. Tell the news, bt not the list
f the sick- and dying.
9. If possible, egrry something
with you to please the eye and
'elieve the monotony of the sick
'oom, a flower. or even a picture
wvhich you can loan for a few
10. If desirable, some litd1e del
cacy to tempt the appetite will be
11. The perfume of some flow
~rs is poisonous, and they should
1ever be carried into the sick
'oom. IEspecially is this true of
he tuberose, oleander, heliotrope,
iyacinth, orange and 1ilac, syringa
12. Stay only a*.moment, or a
~ew minntes at the longest, anless
rou can be of some help.
