A SACRAMENT OF POVERTY.
IJY MRS. A. E. UAIIR.
A blue sky, and a blue sea, and a
large white 'house facing it in front,
a stretch of firm, gray sands, upon
which the waves kept up an eternal
whispering behind, a grove of orange
trees, the subtle fragrance of whose
blossoming tilled the summer air with a
In tlie front of a piazza of this house
stood, one summer morning, a very
beautiful woman calru browed, with
great pensive eyes, and a face and form
almost faultily "faltk'ss. Her dress was
of some thin texture, of a pale violet
color, and jhe great crimson flowers of
a tropical vine, which trailed over ami
under and round every inch of support
the piazza could yield, threw its rosy
shaddow over her.
Jlcautiful exceedingly, she was yet
p:iMon:itc and proud, and utterly ig
norant of ''the rich blessings of con
straint;"' for her will had always been
to all within her home theyca and nay
froni which there wa3 no appeal. All
who knew her sravc the homairc of im
plicit obedience all stive one; and for
subject she now waited
Poou -he saw hi in coining; his pow
erful black horse devouring the dis
tance with eager steps, until the' stood
under the locust tree, white with
drooping sweetness, that shadowed
the gates of the main avenue. Here
j John Hereford stopped and tied his
! hrsc in their shadow, and then look-
eil lovingly, longingly, toward the wo
1 man watching him from under the
green piazza. lie was worth watch
' ing. this John Hereford; handsome
enough to match even Kuby Hac's
J beauty: a wise young gentleman in
wlioc character there wa-i no scam.
They had loved each other long, but
the course of their love had nof run
"-inooth. First, Uubv's father died,
then the war interfered, and now pov
erty lay like a cold, dark shadow
twecn them. Uoth had been rich,
both were now poor, and between that
had and now lay mUcrie and sorrows
and disappointments enough to have
tamed less confident siiirits.
For some time it had been hard for
either of them to realize the change
that had fallen on their lives. John
had come back from the camp with a
linn trust in his own particular section,
and its ability somehow to tind a liv-
inr for him. Itubv had never believed
it possible that any of her requests i
would be denied by the tradesmen of
the little town which had for so many
years seemed only to exist in ordr to
serve the Kae plantation. Both were
deceived, and it did not take John long
to decide on his future course He de
termined to go bravely to work at
whatever he could find to do, and noth
ing better offering, he accepted the po
sition of overseer to the stranger who
had bought his father's estate.
Ruby was outraged, indignant, not
to be reasoned with, or entreated. She
declared their engagement broken, and
passionately threw at his feet the opal
rin'i John liad given her.
Ihi was jrfull year ago, and since
then they had not spoken. John had
toiled hard in the fields and over the
books of the old familiar estate, and
Ruby had shut herself up with her '
nride anil the two old ncjrro women
who remained fathful to her. Both
had suffered. There were anxious
lines on John's face, and Ilitby's eyes
told a tale of sacrifice. But John's
sufferinjr had brouirht its reward: his
conscioiitioiU, careful toil had
the respect of his employer, and he I
had offered him a vcrv fine position
which he commanded in New York
The salary was large enough, John !
tiiotiirnt, to marrv on
; hence he had ,
written to Rtiliv to ask her for this in
tcrview. John foresaw. that it was
not destined to ho a hanpy one when
she did not conic walking -down the
avenue to meet him, as had been her
custom in happier davs. He could not
tell how much this sacrifice to her
pride cost her, and so he said, rather
bitterly, as he held out his hand :
'A cold grcetinp. Ruby.''
"Such as you have stinted me to,
John. It is not my fault that I cannot
inert you as an equal."
"1 liave left the old Hereford Place
forever. Ruby, so that question is not
worth disciisinr now. A very line
situation, with an excellent salary,
has been o tiered me in Xew York: I
came to ak you once more to share it."
"Eat the bread of service! "Vo. thank
you, John. My little property in the
village buys nic bread and lmislin
dresses. Mammy Ran n and Aunt Sallie
raise chickens and vegetables, and this
poor roof still shelters me. I prefer
poverty and respectability."
"Say pride, Ruby a po'or. miserable
pride, which offers on its cruel altar
not only your own youth and beauty,
but also the happines- of one who has
loved you ever since he can remember.
We have hardly borne this years sep
aration, broken as it has been by an
occasional sight of each other. I am
going away to-morrow. If we meet
no more, how are you going to comfort
yourself for my loss. Ruby?"
"Do you flatter yourself. John, that
you are then really necessary to its
"Ye. I do. Ruby: elc you were the
falsest as well as the most foolish of
women. How often have vou told
me so? Oh, Rub . darling! don't waste
both of our live.-for a sentiment that
ha no meaning in the new order of
thing with which we must now grap
ple." w l
And her keen, stinging an-wer. o
utterly foolUJi and futlic, her cruel,
doubtful little hjieechf. brought at
length on her wi at ihe rirhh deerved,

lovlrj r j.-ntr who Le"d hir t'.iu
hands, and looked into her face with
those open, clear gray eyes.
They parted without hope and with-,
out promise. John went to hi new
life haunted by that last miserable look
which Ruby cbuld not quite suppress;
and she shut close the doors of her
house and heart, and thought she had
left her love lying dead outside.
In the battle of life John soon found
that the first step toward command
ing one's destiny was to command one's
spirit; so he bravely let the dead past
bury its dead, and bent all his great
natural powers to new duties. Kuby
and he seemed to be as effectually sun
dered as if death, and not pride, had
"put them apart."
Thus four years had passed away,
each one drifting them further apart.
For John's friends had gradually fol
lowed his example, and scattered them
selves far and wide from the little
southern village which could no lon
ger give them a subsistence; while liu
uy, more and more offended at a socie
ty which was rapidly assimilating it-
sen to tlie new order ol things, retired
altogether from it. In 1870 6he stood
where she did in 1860, a relic of a class
which will soon be a tradition. Most
of her friends had accepted cheerfully
(or otherwise) the situation. Sonio
were teachinir. some "takimr boarders"
and a few had married men who, ac-
according to Ituby's code, "were not
She, with a courage and firmness
which ought to have had a better object
said to all manner of happiness ''I can
do without thee," and lived in perfect
isolation and seclusion. And if people
arc determined to be recluses, the world
bus not time to convert them. Unity's
acquaintances wondered, expostulated
and then forgot her.
A joyless life is worse to bear than
one of active grief, and Itubv often
found herself pitying her owii heart.
In the lonely, dilapidated splendor of
her honc. she sat mostly silent. There
was no bliss coming for her to run and
greet, and a still, passionless look set
tled over the face once so radiantly
Then, one hot summer's night, her
summons into the very thickest of life's
conflict came. There was a sudden
light, which gathered, spread and till
ed the air with heat and smoke. The
village was on tire. Jsrigliter every
minute grew the flames, and through
that clear atmosphere, though two
miles distant, she could hear the cries
and shouts of those fighting the fear
Iluby's heart kindled: it burnt with
in her. Her cheek flushed; her eyes
tilled. Before she could think or rea
son, she had saddled her marc, and was
Hearing the burning village. In among
the wailing, excited frightened crowd
she rode. Their vei weakness devel
oped all the strength of her woman
hood. In half an hour she had got wag
ons for the children, and had sent them
to the shelter of her own large empty
home. The very atmosphere, by some
subtle, spiritualchcmistry, evolved all
the latent spirit of her nature. She was
calm and sensible, full of wise and pru
dent suggestions, which eventually re
sulted in puttingastop to the confla
gration. When the daylight broke she
found herself black with smoke, scorch
ed with the flames, and absolutely pen
niless for her little property lay in ashes
At once she realized that her drcamv.
sellih, lazy life was over. She had not
a dollar to rebuild the houses whoe
rent had been her whole support, and
her own home was mortgaged to its full
value. She knew well that she had
long been a tenant at the will and gen
erosity of her father's old friend. Emer
gencies are prompt and rapid counsel
ors. She determined to leave as soon
as possible for Xew York, and earn
there her own living. If any hopes
connected with John Hereford influ
enced this decision, she never acknowl
edged them to her own heart.
I should like to ias over the next
eight montcs of Ituby's life, and indeed
I Minll not go into detail. Imagine a
woman so proud and so Ionelv. so niex
perieuced and bo poor, flung all ntonec i
upon ncr own resources: j jay aner nay

tanec she was to receive iin return, and
in the meantime ner nuances did not
always allow her to indulge in two
meals a day.
This abstinence, with the confine
ment and exhaustive labor, soon told
distressingly both on her feelings and
appearance, fcne suffered so mucn that
she began to be afraid of her own pale,
thin face, and the hungry look in her i
eyes, and she often found herself won
dering it shesfioiild die whether John
would find her out and bury her de

shine on trainl one miserably cold night,
as she was feebly makiiur her way tin i
Broadway, almost fainting from ex-
haustion. some one put his hand upon ,

said, with a voice tremulous with love
and pity, "Oh, Ruby! Ruby! Darling:"
She knew at once that it was John,
but she was too faint and feeble to do
more than smile sadly and put hands
He called a carriage, and lifting her
tenderly in. drove to a restaurant.
Then he gave her wine and food, and .
she was far too hungry and too humble
now to do anything but accept them

A Sad History.
In the year 1841 there lived in the
city of Rochester a young lady of edu
cation and refinement, about twenty
years of age, engaged as a teacher in
one of the schools ol that city. She
became acquainted with a gentleman
of fine address, an Englishman by
birth, who was connected with a fam
ily of high official position in Canada.
He kept one of the largest dry goods
stores in the city of Rochester at that
time. After a suitable time, they were
married in one of the Episcopal
churches of that city, and her. friends
considered the match a good one, but
it was soon found that he had been in
the habit of visiting the drinking and
gambling houses of the city, until he
had acquired irregular habits. De
rangements of business and financial
ruin came upon him and he failed.
Picking up the fragments as best he
could, he removed to the city of Buffa
lo, where he resided until the year
1855. At that time they had five chil
drenthree sons and two daughters.
The dissipated habits of the husband
had continued to increase from year to
year, until the health of the wife broke
I down, she became enfeebled in body
arid mind, and she was removed to the
lunatic asylum at Bloomington, Xew
York, for medical treatment. The hus
band took ins family of small children
and moved to a distant state no one
Knew wnerc. After a year or more,
no one appearing to pay the bills of the
institution, she was turned over to tlie
superintendent of the poor of the city
of Xew York, who transferred her to
the citv asylum ou Blackwell's island.
Here she was surrounded bv insane
persons of every grade, amidst thou
sands of convicts the offscdurings of
Xew York city. Here she remained,
cut off from all her friends and her
children, unknown to all of them, until
the year 1870, when she succeeded in
getting a letter to a distant relative in
Massachusetts. A correspondence en
sued, and in the spring of 1871 the
writer, accompanied by a friend, vis
ited he- in her confinement. The
young and beautiful girl of thirty
years ago had become a woman of
fifty, was dressed in a pauper's attire,
and was compelled to do menial ser
vice in the institution under the direc
tion of the low and brutal ncrsons
male ami female placed over her by the
j Xew York city olHcia.s. The physician
in charge, who was in every way a
gentleman, informed us that there was
j no reason for her detention there, and
I that she was only kept because she had
no place to go. A correspondence was
immediately commenced throughout
the United States for the purpose of

A correspondent of the Chicago Tri

A few of the Mormon women at the

I am told that Mormon men arc
much troubled about how they shall

Mormon women, of course, see their

Mormon ladies do without them, they

but would hardlv meet with thcappro-

should I not have the girl if I want
her? I am able to keep her, and these
Mormons have more wives than they
can clothe decently."
There wa a good deal of truth in
the remark. If I wanted to break down
Mormonism I would put a dozen
French milliner- stores in Salt Lake
City ; give General Morrow, the mili

kind was recently perpetrated in a
neighboring town. A boy who was
rather "verdant" went to learn the

M. II. B.. the sprightly lady corres

York, and don't like it. Ilerc'a what
she says of it:
Ve were divested of crcrv stitch of
our clothing, our ring and bracelets
locked up, ourback hair taken of, our
own special possession of seventy-five
or a hundred hair? made into a 'little
hirsute pill and impaled with a hair
pin. That was the onlv token of civil
ization we boasted. The procession
formed. At the door we were handed
a miniature sheet and a little bit of
sponge wet with cold water. Through
a passage to a room, where we drop
ped our sheets and entered a vapor that
clothed us decently. I wonder the
Illustrated Police dasette or the Day'
Doings haven't hit on this business for
illustration. Well, in this steam I
thought I should suffocate. It poured
up and down through holes till it was
dreadful. The use of the wet sponge,
I have ascertained, was to put on the
top of your head to prevent "coup
de steam," or some such dire com
plaint. They would't let me out, and
the temperature got worse and worse,
and I began to think of my mother and
an obituary notice in the Republican,
when we were pronounced cooked
enough, and let out into a room in
which was a mighty tank of cold water,
through which vou must wade or
swim as you could. Caesar's ghost !
I flew through it. My anatomy and
physiology were heated to a boiling
foint. This water seemed like ice.

head (I'm convinced I have no brains,)

tried to be resigned. 1 had been soap
ed and scrubbed in the vapor room
till I was scarified. I stood on the
brink and watched my companions
splashing through the infernal tank.
One of 'em, to expedite her own release,
cought at my ancle ; away went my
soapy, slippery feet from under me,
and in I went for a second time. How
near an end was the happy connection
between M. II. B. and the St. Louis Re
publican. At the next stage of this truly awful
experience we received the ''shower.
I dad now become convsneed that I
should never sec home or friends again.
In a calm despair I walked through a
solid colnmc of water that nearly broke
my back, and just here I got mad.
The fat attendant hasn't yet recovered
sufficiently to make a complaint, and
when the thin woman went before
Judge Dowling, that gentleman said it
was a conspiracy; that no woman of
my size, unaded, coald do such dam

and say nothing about it; for she had
evidently been dreadfully drunk, and
undertaken to walk through a carpet
cleaning machine. And that's the
first and last Russian bath I take.

to call attention of wet tern farmer's

comparatively short-horned, squat e

"No better foundation for a stock of
cattle for a farm or rancho can be had,
which, wheit crossed with the full

stock fit for grazing or corn feeding,
and when fat. for the shambles of New
York or Boston. The drive of this
class of cattle, although larger than
that of beeves, is not over one third so
great at last year, and inasmuch as no
stock cattle are driven Ih the fall, the
supply must, and will prove less than
the demand before the season closes.
Hence, we confidently predict that
