The Story of an Eldest Son.
Irf8lilii . .r nu. - c -r-i. ul
I am J llie eldest son ot a gentleman
who had a good property in one of the
northern counties of England. I had

So I had lived a quiet country life; but
now, forced by business to frequent the

Unlucky at my birth, the same unlucky

with the same, or rather ten times great
er desires to enjoy the "good things of
this life," I came to man's estate and
discover myself dependent on the gen
erous bounty of a brother whose only
claim to superior sagacity is the fact of
coming into the world before me."
So, saying he turned and hurriedly
left me. I felt grieved that he should
iu bis heart blame me for his want of
luck. I had always given him what I
considered to be a just propotion of my
yearly income; but if he had received
ten times that amount, It would have
all gone in gambling and betting, and
in a few months he would have been as
poor as ever.
Things went on quietly and without
change fer a week or two. . Then I be
gan to be sensible of. a change iu her
behavior to me. I could not say in what
only now she seemed to avoid being
alone with me, and at times spoke short
ly and impatiently to me. For a long
time I tried to make myself believe -it
was only fancy; but by degrees the
swart-breaking truth forced Itself upon
Bun8h was eeasing to love me. Per

wliowts i( tfiat wag robbing tneiot my
idol? Who could it be but my own
brother? Alas! alas? how could It "be
otherwise? Living in the same bouse,
meeting every hour of the day, was it
possible for my Brother . to resist such
perfection ? Still, I might be mistakem
and I determined to watch them closely.
For days I saw nothing to indicate that
my surmises were correct, and I began
to think it were but a lover's fetrs, and
my heart grew light and happy again;
and I went to find her, intending to tell
her of my' idle, groundless suspicions.
As I went through the garden, on my
way to a greenhouse where the servants
told me I should find her, I came sud
denly ou a sight which checked my fur
ther progress. Standing under a shel
ter of a tree. were, two people, a man
and a woman he with his arm around
her, tenderly supporting her, while she
looked up in his face trustingly and lov
ingly. It was my brother and my promised
wife. As I stood still,' rooted to the
spot as it, were, Fpell-bound, their iips
met In a long, clinging kiss. -. i
Witt) a groan, I turned and fled from
the cursed spot, and reaching my room,
threw myself on the bed, wild with
grief and despair, and unable to
collect my scattered thoughts. Nothing
but the one terrible truth was ever be-
forerme ; I had lost her ! . And he, "my
brother, whom I had loved as my myself
had robbed me of her.' Still, strange to
say, no feeling of anger or resentment
stirred my heart. Could I blame . hhn
for lovtng her? He, who was hand
somer far than I, clever and learned in
the ways of. the world, was a more fit
ting, mate for her than I was poor,
simple, weak-minded, blinded fool. I
lay for hours, crushed and stunned, in a
kind of a stupor, and at last fell asleep,
worn out by mental agitation. '' ' ;
Xext morning I awoke calmer, and
able to think over the discovery I had
made. With a decided strength' of
mind very unusual to me, I determined
to seek out my brother, and tell him I
knew all. i Then I would see her, and
release me from her promise to her. Bet
ter for her to be happy with another
thau to be my miserable, unloving wife.
As for me, I would leave England and
travel; better so than see her the happy
devoted wife of another man.: I found
my brother and told him what I had
seen. I cannot tell how It came about ;
my memory falls me about all that took
place at that time, , , lie must,! I think.

Bruised by a brother's hand, I was
ashamed to meet her. But more griev
ed than augered by my brother's con
duct,! wrote her a simple letter telling
her all, and offering to release. Her re
ply came only too soon. . It was a kind
but ready acceptance of my offer., She
could not, she said in jt, deny her' love
for my brother, She still loved me with
al) the strength of sister's love las I
how cold to the love I felt fori bat her
heart was given to my brother, and with
him alone could she be happy.. At the
same time, she added, that if on further
exmsideration'I insisted on making' her
my wile, she would although reluctant-
y, perform her promise, and would try
te make s good faithful wife, but never
a happy one.
.What could I do but give her up?
Was I, to satisfy a mean, selfish love, to
drag the woman I professed to love be
yond the whole world, into a wretched
unhappiness, full of life-long regrets
and blirhted hopes ?-.
When we met again It was as brother
and sister.. But ,the shock and strug
gle were more than I could bear, and
sank into ill-health becoming nervous
and at times fanciful. My doctors ad
vised change of air and scene, and ac
cordingly I prepared to start on A tour
of Hie Continent." : But before I could
get away a diaiiolieal plot was prepared
and pot in practice by my brother,wh!ch
was to rob me of money, home, and even.
About a week 'before., I proposed
starting, I was rather surprised at re
ceiving a call from two gentlemen, both
strangers to me, who introduced them'
selves as consulting physicians, . and
said they had been requested to call and
see me by my brother. . 'Although al
though astonished at such a display of
interest on my account being thus
shown by him, I never for an Instant
suspected any ainsiter design on his part
and answered most of the questions put
to me without hesitation. : So much so
in fact, that the two doctors rose, and
wishing me good morning, said they
were very glad to be able to report so fa
vorably on me.' As they 'were leaving
the room, they stopped for a moment,
and said a few words together in an un
der tone. I only caught her name, and
felt myself redden at the sound.
Tes," said one, "you are right; we
ought to try the subject."; ;,.
Then, turning back they began asking
me what I thought to be Impertinent
questions. I ordered them to leave, but
they only questioned me further; until ,
wild with passion,.! lost all self-control
over my-self and tried to push them out.
Little Tsuspected then that they were
being paid by my brother to examine,
and find an excuse for pronouncing me
mad.' Once in an asylum, I could easily
be kept there, and my cruel brother
would be able to enjoy my property un
disturbed, ., ,.
A few, days after what I have just
told you took place. .1 received a note
from my brother, apologizing to me to
forgive him, and ,to meet him at a cer
tain town, about twenty miles from my
place.-1 It was a cruel, hypocritical, de
ceitful letter, but I joyfully believed it.
and gladly promised to meet him, eager
to be once more reconciled to him. .
When I got to the Inn at the town
where I was to. meet bim, I was told
that he had not yet come, but that he had
engaged a room; and I was taken to it.
I waited a long time patiently, expect
ing my brother to come every moment;
but be never came. Soon -after dark,
two men rough, ill-looking fellows-
came into the room without knocking.
Oneof them walked straight upto me,and
said I was to be good enough to go with
them. 1 asked what their business was
but got no reply other than before
that Iwas to go with them. -1 told them
would not do so without knowing
what they wanted. The one who bad
had spoken first replied that tbey bad
authority to take me with them, and it
would be better for me to go quietly
and not compel them to nse force.' I
stepped back, and seizing the poker,
toldthera that I would nse it against
the first one who laid a hand on - me.
Then I rang the bell violently. To my
surprise, the two men stood still, and
made no attempt at escaping ; and when
the people of the inn" came up to see
what was the matter,' tbey appealed to
them to help them secure me. While I
thus stood at bay, as it were, a door
opened at my back, and before I could
turn rouud, some one threw a thick
cloth over my bead, completely covering
me, and rendering me perfectly power
less to resist. Still I straggled but hope
lessly, and I was soon overpowered,
gagged and blindfolded; then my arms
were pinioned to my side, and I was led
out into the open air, and pushed into a
carriage and driven"1 rapidly away "I
soon gathered from' the conversation
of those around me that I was being
taken to a mad bouse; and could not
but surmise what was the truth that
it was at the instigation of my brother
that I was being taken there. The whole
villainous scheme was now clear to me.
The visit of the two doctors real or
sham I knew not; the letter written to
entice me from home, so as to carry me
off easily and without disturbance. My
cruel, wicked brother, not content with
stealing my love Ironi me, was about to
Incarcrate me in a private asylum, so
that he, being next heir to the property
might freely enjoy it without my hav
ing the means or . the power of expos
ing him.... After about an hour's drive
we stopped; and I was hurried out of
the carriageind led, still blindfolded,up
a long stair. When my eyes were un
covered I found myself in a small room,
scantily furnished,' without a carpet oa
the bare ixrante, and lighted by 8 small
narrow window; barred on theeiitside
with heavy iron bars. A small wooden
beadstead atone end, and a single chair
were the only signs of habitation Vlni
ble. It was a prison not a bed chamber.
I was at once unbound and ungagged,
and left alone to my own bitter reflec
tion.' ' Day after day my life was the
same solitary, monotonous existence
the only exercise I got being an hour's
walk, in company with a brutal keeper,
who took a malicious delight in thwart
ing and bullying me. Letters I wrote
in abundance, but none of them ever
gained a reply ; - nor do I believe they
were delivered. , . . ;'
Escape seemed impossible, guarded
and watched as I was; and I began te
lose all beart,and each day I grew more
hopeless and despairing. Gradually
my health began to fail, And I got nerv
ous and excitable, unable to keep still
through the day or sleep at night. This
was what my jailors were waiting for
to finish' their hellish purpose.' ' I was
forced to take medicine every day, and
sleeping draughts at night, containing
morphia, until my poor brain began to
wander, and 4or. a few weeks was rav
ing mad. Then they relaxed their tor
tures; they had gained their end.
As I recovered my' jeason my facul
ties seemed to be sharpened, and I be
gan to plan, means lor escaping. I pre
tended to be subdued and timid, and by
this means get greater liberty.. . But I
could not deviso.any plan for getting
outside the hated walls; and bad it not
been for a trifling accident, I might
probably have been still a prisoner.
was so quiet and my keepers believed
me to be so tractable and harmless, that
when I was taken for my daily walk it
was not thought necessary to. confine
my arms in a straight waist coat, and
was sometimes taken for rambles out
side the asylum grounds.
' One day my keeper, who was very
fond of trout fishing, wished to have an
hour or two's fishing in a stream-a few
miles distant. Of eourseliis piscatorial
pursuits had to be carried on with great
caution, and without the knowledge of
bis master; and . I was always bound
over to eccresy.. I was always well
pleased when a fishing day was pro
posed, as these were, the only pleasant
days I bad ; and I hoped that some day
or other I might by their means get an
opportunity of escaping.
On the morning In question I got to
the stream, after calling at a friend's
house for my keeper's rod and tackle,
and my keeper began his amusement,
making me keep close to him all the
time. As we walked along the banks
ef the small river we came to a deep
pool, a favorite spot for trout, and my
keeper set to work eagerly. As he
walked gently along, keeping his eyes
intently on the water in expectation of
a rise, his foot caught on the root of a
tree, and he stumbled forward and fell
bead first into the deep water. Now
was my chance; and not waiting a mo
ment to see whether he could swim or
not, I turned and fled, without know
ing or caring in what direction I went
Toward evening I found myself in a
few miles of my own place, and im
pelled by an inward impulse, walked
toward it, intending to take one last
look at it before leaving England. I bad
often thought over what I wonld do
when I got free, and had decided to first
make good my escape to another land
and then take means to recover my
rights, and punish my brother for bis
When I got to my house it was dark;
but the new moon shed a soft, silvery
light over the familiar scenes, and over
come by the. sight of the many spots
endeared to memory by the remem
brance of my, former love and happi
ness, I sat down on a garden seat, and
burying my face in my hands, burst in
to a flood of tears the first for miny
years.' " -
As I sat there I heard voices, and had
scarcely time to hide : myself behind
some bushes, when she and my brother
came down the gravel walk arm in arm,
and sat down on the seat I had Just left.
They were talking lowly; bnt I was so
close to them that I distinctly heard ev
ery word. ' It was the subject of their
conversation. She was pleading for
me. ', i .: u:-.; .
" Can you not remove him now, dear
William?' she said, "surely, now there
is no danger.. They say he is quiet and
gentle." Could we not bring him here
and give him part of onr house, and
try to lessen bis dreadful misfortune?"
It is like your gentle nature, dear
est wife." Was she then really this
monster's wife? "But I cannot suffer
you to live near such a dsngerous mad
man," he said in answer. "It is true
that now he is quiet, but brought back
among old scenes, with all their sad
memories, his brain might again fail.
Ah, you cannot imagine how danger
ous andTdetermlned be is when excited 1
Never will I forget his fierce look when
he stood, poker in hand, the night we
took him itotbe asylem. - Had I not
gone into the next room, and opening
the door behind him, suddenly thrown
table cloth over his head, he would
have done mischief."
" Ohrother, brother!"
" I often think of that dreadful time
dearest,' she replied, shuddering and
drawing closer to him. "How your
kind, tender heart must have bled for
him ! And yet he was ever gentle to
me; and before I knew you, I thought
I roved him dearly.
I could not stay and listen longer.
Another moment and I must have rush
ed forward and told her alL. I fled.
i Although they must have heard my
retreating footsteps, they were unable
to see me; and I made haste to leave
the home of my father, never to return.
Why should I disturb her happiness by
denouncing tbe man she loved and was
wedded to? No, I would go and leave
her in happy ignorance.
But before doing so I would write to
him and warn him not to betray her as
be had me. I went to Liverpool, and
finding a ship about to sail for Mel
bourne, engaged a steerage passage in
her, paying for it by the proceeds of a
valuable ring I had on my finger, and
of which, for a wonder, I had not been
robbed in the asylum. It is many years
now since I left England how many

Hints to an Apprentice.

Form the determination, my lad right
in the start, to go through and to learn
everything useful, no matter what the
difficulties may be. Do not despise
small things nor shirk the disagreeable
and dirty jobs. Make it your business
to master . everything that comes in
your way.- Obey the foreman implicitly,
and act in such a manner to the journey
men as to get their good will, and strive
to keep it, for from them you will get
your best help. Keep it in mind that
everything learned is much - toward
learning the trade, and that by learning
the simplest things will each step be
comes easier. Don't be afraid to ask
questions and to keep on asking until
you understand them. Don't say "yes,
I know," and then go to work and spoil
a job of work. Such things are often
done. : Best to be sure of what yon
want to do. Get some one to show you
and pay that one back by doing some
thing to please him; and it is generally
sufficient that you thank bim kindly,
and then do votir level best to make a
good job. Don't be afraid of being
laughed at. Let them laugh, and do
you laugh, too. Take everything good
naturedly, and when they see that you
cannot be teazed, and that you are de
termined to succeed, tbey will turn
around and help you along; but give
them all such, impudent answers, and
instead of helping you on, they will
give you wrong directions and cause
you to spoil your work, just for the
sake of teazing you ; and believe me,
you will be twice as long learning the
trade, if indeed you -ever learn it at all
It is the trade of all trades and com
bines them all. Yon will need all the
aids you can get to make you a good
workman even, but do not be satisfied
with this. Study to make yourself a
master workman. Get to the top of the
ladder it possible, and when there, as
you think, you will discover that thero)
is still room to advance Higher; that
greater things than have yet been at
tempted, will begin to look possible, and
will , in time be mastered by patience
perseverance and hard study.. Patience
is the most essential of all to the new
beginner. Don't allow yourself to get
fretted. Keep cool. Make up your
mind to take things as you find tbem.
Your business is to control matter to
put it into shape so as to form an act
ing machine. You will need all your
thoughts, and no one can think proper
ly if their patience gives out.
At first, follow the directions as near
as you are able. See how others do the
same things. Imitate the best work
men, and above all, learn to kc:p your
back straight. Do not stoop over and
bring your eyes close to your work. By
practice you can learn to do the finest
work and stand erect; and when you
once learn thisj-our work will be health
ful, it will come easy to you, and you
can then tire out two other workmen
that have learned their trade well in
every other particular but this.
As you progress in your trade, you
can try experiments if only with your
pocket knife, by cutting out levers and
wheels and by creating tbe motion you
want, for this wa the starting point of
all machines. "Cut and Try," is an old
saying, but is good for nothing without
headwork; but this added, it makes a
good rule to go by, until you make such
advancements in your practice and stn-
dies, that you can afford to do without
it. Then you will find your draught
ing Instruments will prove the most
necessary aids to your practical knowl
edge, for you can demonstrate a prob
lem with these with the same accuracy
as a sum in arithmetic by the use of
figures, for neither will lie.
And now comes the rewards ef all
your labor. Work becomes play, and
such play as brings in money in other
words, Independence. You are now
assured of a living, as certainly as any
thing on earth can be ; and as it is an
axiom, "that the thing which yon can
do best, is that which gives you the
most pleasure in doing," you will take
delight in your trade, and follow it with
such interest that your advancement
will be rapid in knowledge and power,
and your means of life increased accordingly.
The Shreveport Plague.
The outbreak of yellow fever at
Shreveport, La-, seems to be wholly due
to a reckless disregard of the most or
dinary sanitary precautions. The town
was reeking with filth. No; only were
the dead bodies of animals allowed to
decay on the streets during the heated
term, and mud holes to give forth their
miasmatic vapors without thought of
removing the one and filling up the
other, but, incredible as it may seem,

The End of the World Next
The Adventists are gathered in camp

tbe world will come to an end in 1874.
Their evidence is contained in the fol
lowing quotations. . . -

me, declaring tbe end from tbe begin

" Come near ye nations, to hear; and
harken, ye people; let the earth hear,
and all that is therein ; the world and
all things that come forth of it, for it's
the day of the Lord's vengeance, and
the year of recompenses for the con
troversy of Zion. And the stream there

the smoke thereof shall go up forever."

Fishing with a Frog.
A well known amateur fisherman
who is very foud of the sport, conclu
ded, upon his last visit to the Cumber

frog, for bait, feeling confident that he
wonld be able to draw in catfish of
huge proportions. The gentleman who
was his partner in the fishing business,
after getting several nibbles, succeeded
in landing a good sized drum. Half an
hour elapsed and the man with the frog
had no indications of a bite, and he sug
gested to bis friend that his new bait
was about to prove a failure. "Did your
frog have a green head?" asked his
partner. "Yes." responded the man
with the frog. "Perhaps that's yours,"
and lie pointed to one on the bank. Up
