Oh, could thero in this world bo found
Some little spot of happy ground
Where v.Uage pleasure might go round
Without the village tattling;
How doubly blest that spot would be,
Where all xniRht dwell in liberty,
Free from the bitter misery
Of gossips' endless prattling.
If such a spot were really known, .
Fair Peace might claim it as her own,
A ad fen she might fix her throne
Forever and forever;
There like a queen to reign and live,
While every one would soon forgive
The little slights they might receive,
And be offended never.
Tm mischief-makers that remove
Far from our hearts the warmth of love,
And lead us all to disapprove
What gives another pleasure.
They seem to take one's part, but when
They're hoard our cares, unkindly then
They soon retail them all again.
Mixed with their poisonous measure.
And then they've such a cunning way
Of telling ill-meant tales; they say:
Don't mention what I'vesa d, I pray;
I would not tell another!"
Straight to your neighbor's house they go
Narrating every thm they know.
And break the peaceof high and low,
Wife, husband, friend and brother.
Oh, that the mischief-making crew
Were all reduced to one or two,
And they were painted red or blue.
That every one might know them 1
Then would our villagers forget
To rage and quarrel, fume and fret,
Or fall Into an angry pet
With things so much below them.
For 'tis a sad, degrading part,
To make another's bosom smart,
And plant a dagger in some heart
We ought to love and cherish.
Tr-en let us evermore be found
In harmony with all around,
Wh'le fr endship, joy and peace abound.
And angry feelings perish.

Gkaxd Pacific Hotel, Chicago, April 12, i
1S8S. Dear Franlt: It is ages since I heard '
from you, but I suppose every thing goes on
as usual, and that you can find nothing to
write about. Whon I wrote last I told you
about my engagement to Miss Josic Fair
field, only daughter and heiress ot Jere
miah Fairfield; and I think I gave you a
f nir description of your future sister-in-law.
Old Jeremiah is behaving very handsomely,
and is going to plank down a fair share of
his dollars in hard cash. I am in excellent
condition, and, to use a favorite expression
of my fiancee's, "am just having a lovely
Every body here makes an awful fuss
over mo, and will insist on calling mo "Lord
Galloway." Titles here are held in the
highest veneration ; but the majority of the
people I huve met dout seem to know the
difference between an honorable and a mar
quess. My future father-in-law took mo
over his pig-sticking establishment yester
day, and each time he came to a group of
butchers at work he would stop them for an
instant and sviy. "This is Lord Galloway,
my future son-m-law."
There is one curious mistake that every
one has made bore, and that is that they
havo all taken it for granted that I arn the
elder son and heir to tho title, although I
have never dono or said any thing to cause
them to believe so. As old Fairfield has al
ready told all his friends that I shall bo Vis
count Decatur, and consequently his daugh
ter a Viscountess, I hardly dare now to un
deceive him in case he should want to break
off the match. My fair fianceo alto has told
all her girl friends that on the death of my
father she will be Viscountess Decatur, so
that I really see nothing for it but to leave
them in ignorance of tho true state of the
caso until after the wedding, which has
been fixed for this day week. Consequently
when you receive this my proverbial ill
luck will havo deserted mo and I shall bo
tho happy possessor of a millionaire bride.
I am sincerely attached to Miss Fairfield;
but, as I told you in nry last letter, my
father-in-law-elect, as they say over here,

New York, May 12, 18S8. Dear Frank:
Tho affair wont off splendidly and without
n hitch. AH tho Chicago papers teemed
with accounts of the brilliant ceremony and
the matrniflcent presents made to the bride, i .,
Unfortunately, they all accepted it as a fact f
thnt I am the future Lord Decatnr, and I I
have not yet had tho courage to undeceive
my bride. As wc sail for England i
next week I shall not say any thing about j
tho mistake, but will leave it until she meots I
you and finds out that you are the heir and
not myself. One paper in Chicago asserted
that I should soon be a Duke, as my father,
the Duko of Decatur, was in a very precari- J
ous state of health. That was a good stretch
o imagination for a Chicago journalist.
Good-bye, old fellow. Your affecte. brother,
From Mr. Frederick Galleway to her Father,
J tr c.nah Fairfield.
Gkad Hotel, London, June 10, 1S83.
Dear U- I am writing you with a broken
heart. I have been the victim of a most
shameful imposture and 1 am the miser
able, unhnppywifo of tho vilest of scoun
drels. My husband is not Lord Galloway!
He will never be a Viscount I He will never
own Decatur castle 1 He will never sit in
the House of Lords I But ho will aiways be
a miserable, sneaking p.iupor younger son !
How could you let me marry him without find
ing out all about him? Your carelessness
ignonvueo I may in charity call it has
ruined your daughter's life and wrecked
her p-ospects forever. 1 am coming home
ima.edinusly, for I will never live with tho
wretohod impostor, who gained ury affec
tion under false pretenses. I dare not face
tho girls in Chicago; so meet mo in New
York -uid advise mo what to do. I sail on
tho TJinbna next Saturday. Your broken
heai ted daughter, Josie.

Gband Pacific Hotel, Chicago, Sept. 20,
18S3. Lear Frank: The agony is over. Yes
terday the court, in response to the demand
of my late bride, annulled the marriage
which had taken place between us. The an
nulment was granted on the ground that
the petitioner's consent to the marriage
had been obtained by fraud and false repre
sentation on my part. Numerous witnesses
swore that I called myself "Lord" Galloway
and had stated that I was heir to Viscount
Decatur. Of course my word was no good
against all this. Old Fairfield, who gave
evidence, described me as "damaged
goods," and the judge paid no attention to

judge was sure to grant the plaintiff's peti

peal, and did not dare to run the risk of !
losing old Fairfield's influence. Judges over !
here are elected by popular vote, and old
Fairfield, besides having the influence !
which is always attendant on great wealth,
employs thousands of men in his pig-sticking
establishments, and of course controls !
their votes. Thus it is that no judge who '
aspires to a higher office, or even to re-clec- j
tion, ever dares to say him nay. Moreover, '
I am told that this old hog-butcher's political !
influenco is so great that he controls half ,
the State Legislature and can get any bills
he likes passed by it; and that if the judge
had refused to annul my marriage with his
daughter ho would have had a special act
declaring it null and void put through the
Although unquestionably it was very
wrong to allow these toadies and title
worshipers to continue in their self-created
delusion that I was the eldest son, yetl cer- '
tainly had nothing to do with originating
that belief. That was simply the offspring
of a combination of ignorance and syco
phancy. I am going to remain here for a few
weeks, as I have gone into a little wheat
speculation which I hope may prove remu
nerative. If it fails I shall be, as they say
here, "dead broke." Your affectionate
brother. Fred. I

Chicago, Oct. 12, 1SS3. Jy Lord: I red
with the deapest regret of the teriblo calami
ty wich has overtook you, and I hurry to
oferyou my condolations. My daughter is
real sick with grief, and says as she just
longs to be by your sido in your trouble.
Now, my lord, I am willing to say, "let bi
gones bo bigones," and let us patch up this
little matter. No one is to blame but I, for
it was I who forced Josie to throw you up. I
seperatted two loving harts, and I am real
sorry. Shall Josie come to you? there is
nothing like sympathy in trubble. If you
and Josie will make it up, I will come down
handsome. The ceremony could bo per
formed quiet in my house or at your hotel;
although so far as ceremony is cousarned, I
think marriages are made in Heaven, and
no earthly jedgo has a right to unmake
them. My daughter sends her love, and
says as she and I will come round to sec you
this evening. I trust your Lordshipp will
receive us with the same forgivvin speritt
with wich we come. I remain, my lord,
yours for evor, Jehemiah Faihcdild.

1833. Sir: I have just waded through your
imbecile epistle, and am now thanking God
that your daughter's ignorance andnarrow
minded ambition has saved me from being
cursed with a father-in-law who is capable
of producing such a document. I regret
that it is not convenient for me to agiee
with you in your newly-formed opinion that
marriages are made in Heaven. I would
also advise you that, as your daughter will
henceforth bo branded in tho English mat

BIG TREASURE VAULT.
The Largest Construction of the Kind In
The one-hundred-million vault is tho
largest construction of tho Kind in the world,
writes the "Washington correspondent of tho
Philadelphia Times. As it now appears it I
looks liko a modern improvement on tho t
dungeons of the old inquisition m Spam,
Italy and Austria. Doscending into depths
of tho massive foundations of tho Treasury,
about thirty feet below tho surface of tho
public thoroughfares outside and crossing a
dingy, dimly-lighted baro apartment, a
great square of stoel, standing partly open
in a steel casement, suggests the entrance
to tho new vault. The door, about eiehtfeet
high and six feet wide, is six inohes thick
and weighs fivo thousand pounds, or two
and one-half not tons. To move it on its
tracks into its steol casing requires the des-
Sorato exertions of five men. A mechanical
evicc is now being constructed to lessen
the demand for this amount of muscle in
handling the ponderous portal. A lock ono
foot in diamotor, resembling the highly-
polished bottom of a dish-pan and operated f
tnrough a combination of the most dehcato
and intra Ate mechanical appliances by
means of key.a throws the powerful bolts in-
to the slots in the frame, and a time-lock '
holds them there against any thing short of
blowing up the building by the roots until
the hour fixed for the morning rounds of tho
official custodian of the vaults.
Passing through the jaws of this mon-
ster of human contrivance against burg- !
lanous attempts, the chill, damp air and
inky darkness suggest tho strength and
isolation of this vast treasure-box. It is
85 feet long, 50 feet wide and 12 feet high,
surrounded by massive walls of masonry
and brick five feet thick. In the dim light
of a candle the weird lattice work of inter
lacing bars of steel which form the six-
i teen cells, each ten by twenty feet, may be i a fundamental principle, as laid down in his
; vaguely seen. Around the inner cago leads j lcctures,thattomakeiitercoursewithothers
. a narrow corridor, where the custodian of I agreeable we must select topics upon which
, the vault may make his rounds of inspec- , wc are agreed. He always judged men at
' tion. Upon a transverse central corridor their bost, and through this charitable re
the cells open. Each door is fitted with an I gard drew forth their best feelings towards
ingenious device for fastening, which will
not catch until the door is entirely shut and ,
tho key removed. (
Each of these cells will hold six and a half
million uouars. or two hundred tons of sil-
vertlollars, or a grand total of 3,500 uet tons,
equal to iiw,uw,OiA silver
dollars If the i
corridors wore used for storage this aggre- j
gate could te increased to a2S.O00.00O.
Some practical idea of the extent of this
treasure may be formed when it is realued
that to transport it would require at least
1.S0O wagons, which would extend in e. rnn-
Unuous line from the new citv hall of Thn-
adelphia to Norristown. or a "tram of cars
tvhich would extend from the Broad-street
.station to Fiftr-second street.

Dr. Shrady Discusses the German
Tho Interbalaace of Blind and Flatter
Can a Worn-Out Man Become Xow
An Example of This Kind
! The only man in America who has been
, daily associated with all the problems of
the German empire since the death-hand
has been directed against the most con
spicuous members of the Hohenzollern
family has been Dr. Shrady, who in tho
i cases of two Presidents, Garfield and Grant,
secured world-wide attention as the consult
ing plrysician and surgeon in those emer
gencies. When tne Crown Prince became
afflicted Dr. Shrady, through the cable, was
consulted on all phases of his disease and
treatment. His opinions, published or other
wise, have been cabled constantly to tho
Dthcr side of the Atlantic, and if any thing
this compliment exhibits a respect for
American advancement in medicine and
surgery not often paid to us.
Dr. Shrady, in response to a New York
Mall and Express reporter as to the future
life of Frederick III., said:
"Tho possibilities of his recovery of
course no man can limit or define. The na
ture of his disease is still an uncertainly ;
and of course, as my opinions are quoted
in Europe by cable, often probably with
inaccuracy, I must be careful what I say.
I must not go beyond what I know and be
lieve." "But, doctor, the recent journey to Berlin
from San Remo and its consequences, the
effect on the mind and constitution of a man
liko the new Emperor how would you esti
mate tho results!"
The doctor thought awhile, said the ques
tion was a difficult one to answer hap
hazard ; but then, with an intellectual illu
mination common to men of deep thought,
"From my knowledge and standpoint,
and from my experience, I have no hesita
tion in saying that Frederick III. will im
prove from now on, unless 'I greatly mis
understand his trouble and have been mis
informed about his symptoms. Now let me
tell you this. Tho Crown Prince has been
in the valo of depression ; he has been ono
of those unfortunato men against whom a
pitiless sympathy has been bombarded, and,
of course, that . is not always encouraging
to recovery. But let mo cite the caso of
General Grant, which is entirely analogous
certainly in &o far as the grit of mind and
faith is concerned. Ho was low, low indeed,
when he began to write his rgreat book
about the civil war; his disease
was in an alarming condition, but when
he began to exercise his mind, to re
call the achievements of his ver
satile military, personal and political ex
perience, tho frailties of the body gave way,
tho encroachments of fatal corruption of
tissue stopped, and his body became a pas
sive instrument to the inmd. Tho period
when General Grant wrote his memoirs,now
admitted to bo written with a marvelous di
rectness, clearness and fairness of vision
and literary strength, was only the inter
regnum between the precipice of health and
the gulf of death at Mount McGregor. To
the professional mind, to the philosopher,
too, and also to the man who witnesses phy
sical suffering heroically in our profession.
But when his appointed task was done, tho
work upon which he had set his heart and
soul, and tho interests of his family(and his
own historic fame), when suffering under
cruel misfortune, has been secured, thero
was the ult mate collapse. The diseaso
which had consented to halt while his tow
ering mind was active again asserted its
sway. His final decline began. The doctors
tried to divert him by reading, by investi
gations into all sorts of topics, but it was of
no avail, he sank and ho died."
"And the anology exists in the caso of tho
Crown Prince, now Emperor!"
" I think it does that is, if I am correctly
informed as to his physical condition. His
accession to power as Emperor, his genial
nature, his ambition as the ruler of tho
strongest empire of Continental Europo
will, undoubtedly, have o powerful influ
enco in staying the progress of his malady.
Imagine such a thing, even on a sluggish
imagination a nation acclaiming him the
natural climax of a career achieved, yet his
policies not j et declared. I tell you, many
of organic disease havo been
known to give way be&re less formidable
forces than these. I think, withal, his
journey to Berlin has shown recuporativo
powers in the direction I have named, and
his self-consciousness ns Emperor, a chance
of independent development as tho leading
European ruler, will have a salutary effect '
on his general health."
" But are there examples of this kind of
" Certainly! Recall the case of Napoleon
nL Hurled from power in September,
1S70, after a long and lingering disease well
known to our profession, he only survived
a little over a year. But during the many
years of the empire, while ho lingered in
pain, he was happy in dynastio achievement
and intellectual power. The moment ho
fell in rule, so he fell in physique. This is
the rule, curiously enough, of men subject-
ed to organic troubles on tho one hand or to
exaggerated mental strain on tho other."
" Your conclusion, then, is, doctor, that
the succession of Frederick III. is a better
harbinger of lus future health?"
"I have no doubt of it," said Dr. Shrady.

Rev Francis T Russell, rector of SL
ilargaret's Diocesan School for Girls, m

American of that city some reminiscences
of the Aicott family, among them the fol
lowing: " One of tie marked characteris
tics of ilr. Aicott was his kindliness of

mankind, and from a constant, thoughtful
regard for the interests ol others. It was a
