'Do not return to the Grange, Etsy

'What, Etsy ! tired of life at twenty

'Not deserted. Etsy; you have twice

and homely,and then I never could for
give him that first unconscious start
and shrinking away. I had loved only
Lionel in all my life and I forgot for
the moment how changed I was and
how to meet him. He recovered him
self in a moment, but I seemed as if it
changed my whole nature, and I grew
cold and disdainful; but a great pain
- was at my heart, even wherp f",med

'You love him still, Etsy !'
The crimson lips grew scornful, and
'Yes; 1 have never loved any one
else. You will think me mean-spirited,
'No, Etsy; I honor you for it. But
we will not talk of it. Papa will go
anywhere I wish. I have never been
to Niagara. If you would like we will
go there, where all will be strangers to
So they went to Niagra Mr. War
ner, Agnes and Etsy. Leaving the la
dies in the reception room, Mr. Warner
went to register their names in the
hotel book of entry, but returned in a
moment with a face from which every
vestige of color had flown.
'Etsy, when I went to register my
name a gentleman was just returning
his pen to its case, and the ink was yet
wet with the name of Lionel Peyton !'
'My husband ?'
'I tear so; but do not grow so pale,
child. I thought, perhaps you might
wish to leave this place, and so did not
register our names.'
The beautiful, pale face was pitiful
'Stay, let me think. It might not
be my husband, and yet I never knew
t& Lionel Peyton out of our family.
"Was the gentleman's face anything
like this ?' and poor Etsy took a minia
ture from her jewel case.
'Yes; it was very like, only this face
is more youthful. The face I saw was
bearded and bronzed and careworn
'If I thought he would not know hie,
I would stay and see him for mysslf
I would like to.'
'He would never know you, Etsy.
You are as unlike the Etsy of fifteen as
you are unlike the wife of twenty. I
think you might remain with perfect
safety ;and it may not be your husband,
after all.' ,-
So Etsy stayed, and on the book of
entry was written, Mr. Ely "Warner
and daughter and Mrs. Willis.
'We will call you Essie, and then if
it is your husband he will never know
Mr. Warner was right; Lionel Pey
ton could never recognize in this bril
liantly beautiful woman either the rosy
schoolgirl of fifteen or the wife of
twenty. Etsy at twenty-six was tall
and stately, with a clear, dark skin,
brilliant color, and large, shadowy,
haunting eyes, in whose depths lay a
great pain ; you felt it as soon as you
saw her. It was her husband ; Etsy
knew him the moment she saw him. It
was in the dining room she first met
him. He looked at the party-entering,
as any gentleman would look at pretty
women, his gaze resting longest on Et
sy, her gorgeous Eastern beauty over
shadowing theJ pale loveliness of Agnes

had' not suffered. They sat at the same
table day after day, tuis husband and
wife, till poor Etsy's heart was like to
break. By and by Mr. Warner made

and together they traveled

as with a pencil, every subject he
One day Etsy said, half scornfully,
What do you think of my husband,
His answer surprised her.
I admire him more than any man 1
ever knew, Etsy. I wish 1 could un
derstand what is keeping you apart.
That night he sent for the ladies to
join him in the parlor. To Etsy's sur
prise he introduced them to Mr. Pey
ton, who threw the charm of his con
versation over them, as he had over
Mr. Warner, and the evening passed
ere they had begun.
Time passed on and the other even
ings were spent together, and it soon
required but a careless eye to see that
the beautiful face of Etsv Pevton was
the only face on earth to their new

'Essie made no reply.
One night Mr. Peyton said to her:
'Mrs. Willis, your face haunts me; it
reminds me of some one I have seen
before; perhaps it was in my dreams.'
And Etsy only answered 'Perhaps.
She sat on the veranda one night,
waiting for Agnes and her father. J hey

day, and there was a great ache at
Mr. Peyton stepped through the
window and stood beside her. He
merely bowed his stately head, and she
never spoke she dared not. 'You are
sad to-night, Mrs. Willis. Are you
sorry to leave Niagara ?'
For the life of her 6he could not have
answered him, but without waiting for
one he sat down by her side.
'I, too, am sad to-night, but my sad
ness has a deeper meaning than yours.
At my heart are tugging love, remorse,
regret and a wretched quarreling with
fate.. I wish I dare lay bare my heart
to you, for my soul is famishing for
'And you will not think less of me
because have sinned and suffered ?'
'I will not.'
'Five years ago nay, I must begin
further back. Ten years ago. I knew
and loved a young girl. She was a
loving child, tender-hearted and win
ning. She won my heart ere I knew
it, and I asked her to be my wife. She
censertted (tend when', wo pavtedhucg
round my neck and wept so bitterly
that I found it very hard to leave her.
I went back to Germany, and after
ward carried with me all over the con
tinent the memory of that beautiful
face, and more than it, this memory of
the gentle, loving heart. I returned
five years later to find a cold-hearted,
haughty woman, who repelled my ten
derness and threw back upon my ach
ing heart the love I would have felt for
her if she had but been tender and pa
tient. But I must be just I found the
lady so changed in her personal appear
ance that I did not know her at first,
and doubtless my manners seemed
cold to her, for I was mourning for my
beautiful little Etsy, and could not be
lieve this cold, palo woman was she.
We were married within the hour of
my arrival and though at first my soul
sickened, I did strive, before God, to
give her my love, but I verily believe
she hated me, for she grew more and
more cold and disdainful every day,
till, mad with sorrow and regret, I left
my home to wonder, disconsolate and
sad, all over the earth. Twice, remem
bering she was my wife, 1 wrote, beg
ging her to join me, for I could not
bear to return to the grange, where all
knew my sad history; but she haughtly
refused, saying in her last letter that
she fancied our paths would be happi
est far apart. You, too, have known
sorrow, Mrs. Willis, but it is better to
mourn for the dead than the living.'
Lionel Peyton loved Mrs. Willis,and
it required all his honor and manhood,
all his self-control, to keep frorn taking
her in his arms and telling her so. He
did not, but continued:
'Later, I met with one who, before I
was aware of it, crept into my heart
a beautiful, regal woman, with a pas
sionate tropical nature, entirely suited
to mine. I loved that woman, but I
dared not tell her so; my honor for
bade it, and yet I love her I Oh, my
God ! thou knowest it all.'
As the white lips grew calmer he
said: 'To-night for all my battling,
this wild love is clamoring to be heard;
all the anguish and regret.all the hard
er to bear because unspoken. I thought
I must speak or die, but when the
storm was at its height aj great calm
came over my spirit and something-like
God's great pity' fell upon my tempted
soul, and once more it was able to over
come. I have come to say good-bye,
Essie. There is only one course for me
to pursue. I must rejoin my poor wife,
and if she is willing to receive the prod
igal, try to make her happy.'
'Did you love ber so much this
beautiful woman of whom you spoke
better than any beauty of Italy or
Spain, or any one you met in your
His face flushed and then paled.
'Better than any woman on earth
better than anything but my honor and
my God,' and he held with an iron
grasp the small white hand he had ta
ken in his. 'Love her 1 ah, it would
be heaven to be always by her side; to
watch the flash and gleam of those
proud eyes, and the tweet trembling of
the red lips, and the shining dark hair
and the proud throat, while as snow.'
'It must have been very bard to give

'It was hard. What would you have

starving heart craved all she could hear
of the love he bore ber. But the strain
had been too gieat; and when she rose
to go she faltered and would have fall

He seated her again and brought a
goblet of water.
'You know who the woman is, Essie.

'I have known it from the first !.
'And you still advise me to return
to my wife ?

He drew her close to his heart.
'This once let me hold you here; and
now farewell !
A moment more and she was alone,
and Lionel Peyton was wildly pacing
his chamber floor with broken words
of praver upon his lips."
A week from that time found Etsev
at the Grange where she found a letter
awaiting her announcing the arrival of
her husband on the following night.
'Oh, Etsy, if you only loved Lionel,'
said the disappointed mother.
'Perhaps I may, mother; perhaps he
may find me more worthy to be loved.'
He came at seven o'clock. The long
drawing-room was lighted in honor of
his coming, and the servants, at least,
with bright new suits and shining faces
showed joy at his return.
He was shown into the reception
room, while a servant went to apprise
He returned in a moment.saying she

Lionel bit his lip and followed the
old servant with a proud step.
'At least she might have been here
to welcome me,' he thought.
Under the brilliant gaslight stood
that beautiful Essie he was trying to
'Again must he again battle with
spirit to keep down that mad love
which haunted him everv hour? V hat
could have brought her to the Grange?'
She sprang to meet him.
'Oh, Lionel, 1 am so glad.' And
bending back her beautiful head she
field up her lips for a kiss.
'I cannot, Essie I dare not. I am
glad and yet sorry that we have met.'
But she fettered hirr with her white
arms,, and drew his lace clbsr"to hers.
'Lionel, if you will take me I am
yours for I I am Etsy Peyton.'
The strong man staggered and would
have fallen had she not supported him.
Need we describe the joy of the wan
derer, or can you imagine it for your
selves ? How the past seemed like a
hideous dream, whose memory he was
trying to forget; and the future so rich
with immeasurable hope, and how two
souls came out rom the firery cruci

Something in the Bed.
Judge Pitnam has a habit of slipping
his watch under his pillow when he goes
tojbed. One night it slipped down and
as the judge was restless, it worked its
way down toward the foot of the bed.
After a bit, while lie was lying awake,
his foot touched it; it felt very cold; he
was surprised, scared, and jumping from
the bed, he said:
"By gracious, Maria, there's a toad or
something under the covers; I touched it
with my foot."
Mrs. Pitnam gave a loud scream, and
was on the floor in an instant.
"Now; don't go to hollowing and wak
en up the neighbors," said the Judge.
"You get me a broom or something, and
we'll fix tho thing mighty quick."
Mrs. Pitnam got the broom and gave it
to the Judge with the remark that she
felt as if snakes were creeping up and
down her leg and back.
"Oh, nonsense, Maria! Now turn down
the covers slowly while I hold the broom
and bang it. Put a bucket of water
alongside the bed so we can shove it in
and drown it."
Mrs. Pitnam fixed the bucket and gent
ly removed the covers. The Judge held
the broom uplifted, and as the black rib
bon of the silver watch was revealed, he
cracked away at it three or four times
with the broom, then he pushed the
thing off into the bucket. Then they
took the light to investigate the matter.
When the Judge saw what it was -he
said: ' s
"I might have known it is ' just like
you women to go screaming and fussing
about nothing. It's utterly ruined."
"It was you that madd the fuss, not
me." said Mrs. Pitnam.
"You needn't try to put the blame on
me," then the Judge turned in and growl
ed at Maria until he fell asleep.
A Difficult Problem' Solved.
Ambition, competition and over-exertion
use up the vital powers of men and
women, so that a desire for stimulants
seems to be a natural human passion, and
drunkenness prevails on account of this
necessity for bodily and mental invigor
ation. Parker's Ginger Tonic fairly
solves the difficult problem, and has
brought health and happiness into many
desolate homes. It does not tear down
an already debilitated system, but builds
it up without intoxicating. Enquirer.

It is only thirty-four years ago that the
first postage stamp was used in this coun
try. Prior to 1847 postage was charged
by the mile, and the postman received
the price of the letter on delivering it to
the person to whom it was addressed.
For instance, in 1790 a letter was carried
from Savannah to New York for 36
cents, and Boston to New York for about
17 cents. Between the two points last
mentioned the mails . were carried on
horseback, and the time occupied ingo
ing from one point to the other was three
days in winter and two days in summer.
In King James' time the rates of postage
in Great Britain were 2d for a letter for a
distance less than eighty miles, 4d up to
140 miles, 6d for any longer distance in
England and 8d to any place in Scotland.
Our stamps were issued on the 1st of July,
1847, in denominations of 5 and 10 cents
only. In July, 1851, a new series was
adopted, consisting of 1,3, 5,10, 13, 24,
30 aud 90 cents. These continued in uae
till 1661, when another series of the same
denomination as the foregoing, but of
different designs and colors, was adopt'
ed. The 2-eent stamp was first used on
the 1st of July, 1803, to accommodate the
local rate of postage. In the month of
March, 18C9, the C-cent stamp was sub
stituted f or the 5-cent one, but the change
wati not considered a wise one, so that in
May, 1870, the following 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 10,
15, 30 and 90-cent series was adopted.
The following is a description of these
One cent Franklin; profile bust, after
Rubricht; color, imperial ultramarine
Two cents Jackson: profile bust, after
Powers; color, velvet brown.
Three cents Washington; profile bust,
after Houdon; color, milori green.
Five cents Adopted 18T5; profile bust
of Jackson; color, dark blue.
Six cents Lincoln: profile bust after
Polk; color, cochineal red.
Ten cents Jefferson; profile bust, after
Powers' statue; color, chocolate.
Fifteen cents Webster; profile bust,
after Clevenger; color, orange.
Thirty cents Hamilton: profile bust,
after Cerrachi; color, black.
. Ninety cents Commodore O. II, Perry;
profile bust, after Wolnott's statue; color,
The 7 cent stamp, which contained the
bust of Edwin M. Stanton, the 12 cent
stamp, which had Henry Clay's picture,
and the 24 cent stamp, with the bust of
General VVinfield Scott, have been dis
continued. The postage due stamp is a recent in
vention. It came into use on the 9th of
ijay, 1879. It is used for collecting short
paid postage. The stamps are of the fol
lowing denomination: 1, 2,3. 5,10, 30
and 50 cents. Their color is a reddish
brown, and the figure representing the
denomination is placed in the center of
the stamp, surrounded by an oval of del
icate lattice work. On the upper border
of this oval are the words "Postage Duo"
in white letters and on the lower border
is the denominational letter in the same
color. On each side . of the oval are the
letters "U.,S."in small white shields.
The highest price paid for a stamp is
$24. These stamps are only used on news
paper bundles. They are not often called
for; nor is there much demand for ninety
cent letter stamps, only one having been
sold at the Brooklyn office during 1880.
The number of pottage stamps issued
to Postmasters in the .United States for
sale to the public during the year ending
July 1st, 1880, was 875,681,970, valued at
2,414,928; and of postage due stamps
6,284,500 were issued, valued at $251,836.
