Heroism in Domestic Life.
A lady correspondent of
the Boston Watchman and re
flector, writing from London,
tells us the following touching
I heard a touching 6tory of
a young girl, the daughter of
an eminent physician,who,upon
the death of her father, was
obliged to support her mother
and herself. She undertook to
manage a Kindergarten school,
and established her mother in
a neat and comfortable home.
Sho herself took apartments
in another section of the city.
An intimate friend of hers
crew anxious to know how she
was living. On a card she had
her fidtlmss. .1 srood f-trpof. ft
Iter adtlrcs?, a goou t-treer, a
good house, in a respectable
locality, but five miles away.
'Caroline tells me she gets
along nicely" her old mother
had said to this friend; "and
she must, for you know that is
a very line port of London
where she i.''
So Caroline was sought out.
"I found the house," said the
friend who related the story.
"It was a very imposing man
sion, five stories high, and in
good repair. A servant came
to tho door, well dressed, but
smiled when I asked for Caro-
"She whs not in, would
I told her 1 was an old friend,
and would wait. She smiled
"Would I care about going
up so high? It was over the
' I said I would not mind;
but I confess I was weary long
beioro I arrived at the tilth
floor. There I was ushered
into scarcely know how to
call it a room; it wa3 more like
a closet. Only in the centre
could ono 6taud upright. It
was the garret. No carpet
covered the lloor, which was
scrupulously clean. A little
trundle bed stood in one cor-
ner, covered with a coarse
white linen sheet, instead ot a
counterpane. Under a calico
curtain hung her scanty ward-
robo two black drceaco. Ono
chair, a little pine table, a bit
ot cnuboard in 0110 corner
these was all that wero visible,
with tho exception of a small
bathing tub in one end of the
poor little garret.
Trembling at my own im
pertinence. I opened the cup
board. One cup and saucer, a
spoon, a knife, and fork, a loal
of bread, ine teats rusnea 10
my eyes. She, who had lived
iu' comparative luxury, to be
reduced to this!
"No sooner had I made my
observations than Coroline
came in. I shall never forget
her look as she saw me, not of
pride, but aslonishricnt.
"I thought I lud so com
pletely bured myself that no-!
body would find me!" she cried
"How kind you ara"
"My dear girl, you could
surely live better than this,"
"But not cheaptr," was her
reply. My expenses are next
to nothing, you mint know, and
mamma could not live as she
does if I allowed myself lux
uries. She is ve-y old, and
must not want tie comforts
sho has been accustomed to.
Besides, I have oerything I
really need. Mj bread and
water are sure, and I am
healthy. If you bok out you
will see the swalbws nest just
under my window I teed the
pretty birdies every day, and
I belive they knw me. My
books and my papirs are pleas
ant companions; I am sur
rounded with a turer atmos
phere; I have n neighbors
opposite to watel me, and 1
want you to believe that I am
ve:y happy; am' if you see
mamma tell her also, that
Carrie is as confortable as
"But, my child do you re
gret the past?"
What good wld that do
me? Regrets ars useless as
dreams. Of coune, if I could
have poor papa lack again
her lip trembled i little. She
ran-to the chest, Ifted her loaf,
and laughingly iked me if I
was hungry." :
"Pray don't hagine that I
want for anythiij " she added
merrily. "I havt.a little store
of figs, and nuts and raisins,
that I eat for a bert; one or
two of the. servits are very
willing to cook.; little meat
when I want it,f nd I really
do live like a pricess; so don't
waste any regreton me.".' .
"I. came awajfrom there,
said my friend, Reeling that I
learned a new U&on in human
experience, and that tlicro
could be, what I had never
imagined possible, happiness
in lodging?; even in a garret,
whoso occupant was a young
girl of nineteen, who had been
reardd in a home of aflluence,
and with no daintier viands
than a crust of bread and a
cup of cold water."
The Kellevue Gazette gets
off the following "Answers to
Correspondents." It is rather
a good burlesque on tho pres
ent style which some journals
adopt of answering all the ab
surd questions propounded by
people throughout the country:
Maximilian has left
Mexico. Where he is nt the
present writing, wo do not
"Volunteer'' If you were
killed in the army your wife is
entitled to a pension; otherwise
sho is not.
"Scmantha'' If Adam had
got the applo first ho would,
doubtless, have eaten it all,
without giving his partner

Josh Billings on Courtship.
Courting is a luxery, it is ice
water, it is the pla spell of the
soul. The man who has never
courted has lived in vane. lie
has been a blind man among
landscapes, he has been deff
in the land oi hand organs and
by the side of murmuring ca
nals.' Courtin is like two lit
tie springs of water that starts
out frori under a rock at the
foot of a mountain, and runs
down hill side by side, singin,
dancin nnd splatterin each
other, eddyin, and frothin, and
kaskadin, now hidm under the
bank, and now lull of shader,
bimeby, they jine and then go
slow.' lam in favor of long
courtin; it gives the parties a,
chance to find out eacn other's
trump cards. It is good exer
cise, and is just as innocent as
5 merino lambs.
Courtin is like strawberries
and cream ; Wants to be did
slow, and then you havegotthe
flavor. I have seen folks get
acquainted, fall in love, get
married, settle down, and go
to work in three weeks from

Perhaps it is best I should
state sum good advice to young
men 'who are about to court
with a view to matrimony as
In the first place young men,
you want to get your system
awl right; then find a young
woman who is willin to be
courted on the Square.
The next thing is to find out
how old she is which you can
do by askin her, and she will
sa she is 1(5 year3 old, and this
you will find out will not be far
out of the wa.
The next is to begin moder
ate, sa once every night in tho
week for the fust six months,
increasing the dose as the pa
shent 8eeni3 to require.
It is a fust rate way to court
the girl's mother a little on tho
start, for there is one thing a
woman never despises, and that
is a good li'.tlo courtin if it is
done on tho square.
After the fust year you will
begin to like the bizness.
There is cno thing I always
advise, and that is to swop
photographs oftntr than once
every 16 iaze, unless you for
get how the girl looks.
Ockasionlly you want to
look sorry and draw in your
wind as though you had a pain?
this will set the gal to teezing
you to find out what ails you.
Evenin meetings are a good,
thing to tend. It will keep
your religion in tune and if
your gal happens to be there
by accident, she can ask you
to go home with her.
Asa general thing I would
not brag on other girls much
when I was courtin. It might
look as though you knew to
If you court three weeks in.
this wa all the time on the
square, if you don't sa it is the
sleekest time of your life you
can go to the cheap 6tore and
get measured for a plug hat at
my expense and pay for it.
