A Song for a Husband.
Tell me not in hopeful numbers,
"That you may be married yet,"
If you rouse not from your slumbers,
A wife I fear you wiu not got. .
Lovo is fickle, be in earnest,
Hymen's altar is its goal,
Moments wasted ne'er returnest
And with regret oft AU the BOUI.
From the past a lesson borrow
Of the danger in delay,
And improve each coming morrow,
By experience of to-day*.
Ko longer dwell on retrospection.
Dreaming of "what might have been,"
Cling not to that old affection.
Which note to cherish is a sin.
If no wife, nor children's prattle,
Thy lone heart with joy doth fill,
Marching on through life's great battle,
Happiness may wait theo still.
Wasto not time in vain repining,
If thy shirts are growing thin,
A "better hair* thou needs be finding
E'er cold weather settlea in.
Trust not widows, ht 'er dharming,
O'er the past thou sbouldst not fret,
Thy case, already is alarming,
If you would "be married yet."
Wives of some good men remind us,
By their love cf dress ind chow,
That matrimony haB designed us
Muoh of cost and caro to know.
Be not disheartened if anothor
Has made in life a sad mistake,
Kor let a forlorn shipwrecked brother
From thy heart all courage take.
You'd better then be up and doing,
E'er again it is too late,
And some nice girl Boon bo wooing,
Or you'll never find a mate.
"True, and I don't mean to have
ar. v tb i nc to dc with them. BuL tue
case would huve another bearing
?were I a brother-in-law. I would have
their bad influences operating on my
~wife. She mast have as costly out
. -fitting as they. She mast have as
fino a house to live in, and as fine
furniture to display to her friends;
and my nose mast come down to the
grind-stone, like the noses of their
unfortunate husbands. I've gone
over tho matter twenty times, or
more, and can seo it no differently.
It won't do, and there is no ase in
trying to harmonize things that are
utterly incongruous. Take another
view. Suppose Nelly came into my
view of things, and turned herself
away from all these allurements.
Suppose we, like sensible people,
lived below oar income, and set oar
selves to make provision for a time
wh6n expenses would be greater. I
would gradually accumulate; set up
business, perhaps, and rise into a
position of some influence in the way
of money matters. Would have cre?
dit if not gold at command. Then
I must consent to be ruined, or
written down as a miser and a churl
by the whole family. Papa lives on
the extension principle, just making
both ends meet, as I infer. Well,
tight times come every now and then.
He has failed once in his life, and
may fail again. When the strain
equals resistance, a slight increase
of force snaps the shaft of timber.
If papa gets in trouble and soa-in
law is all right, son-in-law mast go
to the rescue-sink or swim. It won't
answer, voa see. I've counted the
cost, ana think it too great; have
looked over the hedge before leaping,
and am afraid of the ditch on the other
"I see how it is," answered the
.friend, "you have large caution."
"Am I not right?"
"Perhaps so. But lovers, whose
"hearts .are so much interested as
yours seems to be, are not apt to
throw prudential reasons of this
character in the way of their happi?
ness. They are usually inclined to
take counsel of love alone."
"I have seen pictures of love
blind-folded; but I think love a false
"As yon will," said tho friend.
"But thin I know: If my heart were
interested in Nelly, I would never
-abandon her on the plea you have
advanced; at least, not before I was
well assured that the false life, which,
by a kind of domestic necessity she
has thus far led, had so fostered
pride and vanity as to deprave her
understanding. Bo well assured,
-George, that in this you sin, not
against your own heart, but tho
"I spent an evening with her last
week," was replied. "I went with
any mind more than half made up to
let my lips betray my feelings. It
so happened that sho was not alone.
A young lady was her guest; a very
sprightly, out-spoken, critica!, rather
sharp-tongued girl of eighteen or
.twenty-smart enough for twenty,
and thoughtless enough for sixteen.
People and things were talked about
with a flippancy and freedom neither
charitable nor delicate. Among other
snbjeots, the marriage of a friend
was discussed, and tho well or ill of
the case settled in a manaor thai
made my cheeks burn.
" 'I never thought Amy the simple?
ton to get married in thut mean kiud
of way,' remarked the young lady.
'She must have wanted a husband!
If a man can't do better by me than
that, Td advise him to give my door
a wide berth.' "
"Nelly laughed at her friend, and
returned a few assenting words, that
?tang me to the quick. The present
of a ring by the young husband was
remarked upon. Nelly said it was
an emerald, but her friend pro?
nounced it green glass, adding, that
.nothing bat a diamond would have
suited her ideas. I waited, in un?
comfortable suspense, for Nelly's re?
sponse. It came, in these words:
" 'Nothing but diamonds for me!'
"Thoughtlessly said, George! Only
thoughtlessly said," remarked bis
friend. "You take too seriously the
light speeches of girls, who often talk
without thinking, just to hear them?
"If it was jesting," answered Lane,
"the subject was unfortunate at the
time. But, this was not all. My
earn were quick, and I took in every
word and every inflexion of voice.
said many other things con?
nected with the subject of their
young friend's marriage to a poor
young man, who could not afford her
a 'respectable place in society,' flint
it would be folly for me to forget.
When I left her house that evening,
I drew a veil over her image in my
heart, and have tried not to lift that
voil since. The pain it is costing me
I have not been able entirely to cou
ceal, as witness your observation of
a change in my appearance. But, I
am strong enough to do what reason
tells me is right. No word or inti?
mation of what was in my heart have
I passed to the young lady, so that I
can tnrn from her without dishonor.
Heaven send her a happy lot in life!"
The voice of George Land faltered
a little on the closing sentence. He
was fully in earnest, as shown by
his subsequent conduct. More deep?
ly than he had imagined was the
heart of Nelly interested, as her pale
face, dreamy eyes, and quiet manner
long afterward witnessed. But he
did not return. Two years after?
ward she married; beginning life willi
a young husband just in business,
who drew from his light capital
32,000 to furnish his house in a style
suited to the social grade in whicl
she had been moving. In thret
years, extravagant living had con
sumed more than all he was worth
and under the pressure of a "Ugh
money market," he failed and wai
sold out by the sheriff, Nelly lu im
forced to go back, with two children
to her father's house. Tho 1 as
band, in a fit of desperation, wen
off to California, and died from sick
ness and exposure among the mines
In fie meantime, George Lane
who could never obliterate Nelly'
imago from bia heart, continu?e
to live a single life. He was now ii
business, and gradually accumul?t
ing property. The death of Nelly'
husband, and in a few months after
ward the death of her fattier, awaken
ed anew his iuterest. Pity and sym
pathy began to drop fuel on th
smouldering fire of love. He kno;
that she was poor and dependen!
and learneds incidentally, with paie
that since ber father's death she wa
living with her children in the hons
of a brother-in-law, who was not abl
to support his own family. That on
still dear to him should be th ns dt
pendent, and, as he felt, humiliated
hurt the young man. He could nc
bear the thought, and began tu min
ever in his mind one suggestion <
means after another, looking to he
relief. But all considerations of del
cacy and propriety were in his wu^
He felt that he could do nothing.
One morning, he met her in the
street. He was walking, with his
eyes on the pavement, thinking of
??elly, when, looking up Buddeuly,
he saw her at a distance approach
ing. She was poorly clad, mid had a
bundle on her arm, which Lane re?
cognized, at a glance, as work fro.n
a clothing store. Their eyes met,
and rested on each other. Lane
made a motion as if he were about
to speak ; but Nelly dropped her veil
over her face, and moved on with a
quicker step. Ere the veil fell, he
saw an expression in her eyes, and
on her changed and wasted coun?
tenance, that filled bis henrt with
the tenderest and saddest feelings.
What a history of suffering was re?
vealed! Was this the Nelly of a fow
yearn past! It was; bntNelly chasten?
ed, refined, subdued, and sweetened
for a purer and a truer lifo-meeter
than before for companionship with
such a man as Lane.
The rest need not bo told. If Nelly
lost her lover when skies were bright,
she found him when the ruin was
fulling into the dark days of her life,
and when painful experiences had
made ber vision clear.
Ou the lover's conduct, in turning
from Nelly in her sunny days, we
give no opinion. We only record the
fact, and give the reason. Inferences
and opinions are with the reader
and tho lesson also.
