AT LAST. t
BY CLYDE WAYNE. ti
For ten years had Sadie been a
true and loving wife. Loving,
did I say ? An! yet'ihere were
moments when a memory of the fo
past would haunt her, and a feel
ing that her love had been
bought overshadow her peace. a

the bed and hearing tbese dread
words from the old physician.
'Be brave, my boy. You have
only a few days to live.'

Sadie heard in a dazed way, D

she kneeled beside her husband's r
bed, and as the old man left them
alone, she burst into an uncon- g
'Oh Carlton !' she cried, 'I can
not give you up ! You must not
leave me, my husband.'I
He put one hot hand on the
bowed head before he answered:
'But, my darling, if it is God's
will we must submit in patience.
But, Sadie, who will care for you
when 1lam gone! You have been

she cried, tbe pent-up love of long d
years at last finding vent. r
These were strange words to beb
_uttered to a husband, but Carlton
Wayne's brow did not once cloud
or his loving eyes wander from
the face of his wife. b)
'Don't cry now, Sadie. You
could not help it. And I am to h
blame. I came in his way and t*
stole your heart while he was b

the full realization of your feel- a

Sadie, child. Have read all your V

love. Anid now you will soon be S
free, and Dean will c-me back to V
you, and you will be happy.'
With white, set face, Sadie t
ehad beard him through, and
when he had finished and drew s,
her gently to him she burst intoy
an uncontrollable sobbing. f<
'Oh Carlton, how can you love li
me when I have been so base ! b
Omy- husband, forgive me ! In..t

Sbame and sorrow dyed her

Musk is a concrete substance,
found in an animal having a near
affinity to the deer tribe, a native
of Tbibet, China and Siberia. The
msk deer is a timid animal, and
rarely appears during the day ;
consequently the mask collectors
watch and surprise it at night.
The best musk comes from China,
and to have it genuine it should
be purchased in tbe natural pod
or bag, as it is very often adul
terated. The Bengal musk is in
ferior, and that from Russia the
worst of all. The hair on the pod
of the best musk is afawn color;
that on the inferior a dirty
wite. A variety of musk is found
in the musk-rat of Canada, an ani
mal about the size of a small rab
bit. Musk is of a bitter taste, and
of an odor more powerful than
anyting known ; substances in its
neighborhood become strongly in
fected by it, and, when once per
fumed withbit, long retain the scent.
It has been known to affect chests
of tea placed at a considerable
distance, even though both had
been packed up in leaden boxes,
for which reason, the East India
Company gave an order not to
import musk and tea in the same
ships. Many persons dislike the
odor. It has t'he property, when
employed in ver-y small quantities,
of augmenting the scent of' other
su bstances, wiLhout imparting its
It is not good to be angry with
those who may seem with ma
licious intent to assail our cher
ished beliefs. .A few burning
weeds may produce smoke enough
to hide the stars, but the stars
are shining all the same. It is not
wise to vex and weary ourselves
by angry denuncis.tions of the
smoke which will soon pass off
wihout nna labor.

'oolish stories can't be told of the

In the seventeenth century the
mmnister of a certain parish in
Scotland was the famous Samuel
Rutherford. the religious oracle of
the Covenanters and their adhe
rents. It is among the traditions
that on a Saturday evening, as
one of the family gatherings, when
Rutherford was catechising his
ebildren and servants, a stranger
knocked at the door and begged
sbelter for the night. The minis
ter kindly receivnd him, and asked
him to take his place with the
family and-assist at their religious
It so happened that the ques
tion in the catechism which came
to the stranger was that which
asks: "How many commandments
are there?" He answered. "Ele
ven." "Eleven!" exclaimed Ruther
ford. "I am surprised that a man
of your age and appearance should
not know better; what do you
mean ?" And be answered: "'A
new commandment I give unto
you, that ye love one another; as
I have loved you, that ye also
love one another."' Rutherford
was much impressed by the ans
wer, and they retired to rest. The
next morning, as he threaded his
way to church through the thick
et, he beard among the trees the
voice of the stranger at his devo
tions. The- elevation af the senti
mnents convinced him that it was
no common man, and, on accosting
him, the traveler confessed that
he was no other than the great
divine, Archbishop Usher, the
Primate of the Church of Ireland
who well fulfilled that new com
mandment which he bore to oth
ers. He it was who had come in
disguise to see Rutherford in the -
privacy of his own home. Side
by side they pursued their way to
the little church, and from the
rustic pulpit the Archbishop prea.
ched to the people from the words
which had so startled his host the
evening before: "A new command

one another."-Library NYote.s.
CHANGED His MIND.-Mr. H. C.
Jarrett, the theatrical manager,
tells the following story: One
evening, whbile his party were
playing at the Opera House in
Detroit, a small boy approached
im, and holding out his hand,
exibiting fifteen cents, said:
'Please, mister, I would so
much like to see Cinderella, but
that's all the money I've got.'
The boy's manner touched Jar
rett's tender spot, and after ask
ing him two or three times if that
was all the money he had, and
receiving each time a pitiful
affirmative answer, he gave him a
quarter. The boy's countenance
beamed with delight, and he did
not know how to express his
gratitude. Finally, moving to
ward the street, he said :
'You don't know how thankfal
I am, sir. I am ever so much ob
liged to you, sir; but now that
you have been so generous,. I
guess l'll go to the other theater
and see ''Jack Sheppard !"
TitUE WOMEN.-EVery man of/
sense and refinement admires a
woman as a woman, and when
she steps out of this character, a
thousand things, that in their ap
propriate sphere would be ad
mired, become disgusting and
offensive. The appropriate char
acter of a woman demands deli
cacy of appearance and manners,
refinement of sentiment, gentle
ness of speech, modesty of feeling
and action, a shrinking from no
toriety and public gaze, aversion
to all that is coarse and rude, and
an instinctive abhorrence of all
that tends to indelicacy and im
purity, either in principle or ac
tion. Thbese are the traits which
are admired and sought for in
Thc greatness shows itself in
igr.oring, or quickly forgetting per
sonal injuries, when meaner na
tures would be kept in unrest by
them. The less of a man one is,
the more he makes of an injury
or an insult- The more of a man
be is, the less he is disturbed by
what others say or do against
