The Cost of a Train.
At the time when the first open
court of law was established in Russin,
u lady, drsved with the utmost ele
gance, was walking on the Moscow
promenade, leaning upon her hus
band's iirtn, and letting the long train
oi her rich d<*css sweep th*j dust and
dii t of the strc?t.
A young ollieer, coining hastily
from ti iside street, was so careless as to
catch one of his spurs in the lady's
train, and in an instant a great piece
was tern out of the costly hut frail
material of the dress.
'I Jieg a thousand pardons, mad
am,' said thu eftieeri with a p ? itu bow,
:\ti?l tluui was about passing on, when
he was detained by itit: lady's bus
'Von have insulted my wife;'

lipon he attempted to hasten on.
'You shall lint'escape so,' said tiie
lady, with her head thrown back iv a
spirited way. ' I'o-day is the tir l
time i have worn this dress, an 1 i
cost two hundred rubles, which you
must make good.
'iM v dear madam, I heg you not to

duly at once. As t< the two hundred
rubles?I really cannot help the

pardon for not having bo.h m ire
'You shall not stir,sir. That yoii
are obliged to eo on duty is nothing
to us. My wife is right; the dress

The officer's face grew pale.
'You force me to break through
the rules of t he service, and Ishall

'Pay the two buudreil rubles and
you are free.'

with apparent self-command :

'Oh! any body could sav all that;
hut we'll see if it's true; we'll find out
if you have ir.ithing but your pay I

excuses, and I demand my money,

of a thoroughly unfeeling woniail.
''flint is true?you are r ght,' t!?e
husband added, dutifully supporting
her. 'By good luck we have the open
court now just, in session. Go with
us before the judge and lie will decide
the matter '
All further protestation on the
ollice 's part that he was pool* that he
was expected on duty, did not he'p
matlets. Out of respect, lor his uni
form, and to avoid an open scene, he
had to go with them to liievourl

Dear Harry, that's going too far.
.Don't be disagreeable; lets talk of

Harry didn't smile.

away, and lapping lii-r loot nervously;
I don't see how I can break off with
In r. Harry, for a whim of yours ?

very eveni ig.
Mr. M>'i;oii milde no reply, and in
a f< w in incuts was on his way lo the
.Mar; stood belli ml the curtain, and
looked aller hin, as be went down ihc
street towards the point where the
omnibus was in be got. There was
an unconifortithle stifling sensation in
bei throat and something very like a
fear g ittering in her eye. Harry
was vexed, she was sure of that, lie
had gone tifij lor the first time since
their marriage, without the ufibction
ale "gooddiyo" that was usual with
him, even w hen they parted but for an
hour or two. And so she wandered,
restless and unhappy into her bed
It was quite n little gem. There
statuettes, and pictures, and vases?
all gifts from him either before or j
hi nee their marriage; each one had a
history of its own?some tender asso
ciation connected with Harry. There
was a bouquet?still fresh and fra
grant?that he had purchased on his
way home the day before, to gratify
her passion for flowers. There was a
choice edi' ion of poems they were
reading together the night b dote,
with Mary's name written on the leaf
in Harry's own hand. Turn where
she would, some proof of his devotion
nitvt her eye. Hut Mis. May ! She
was fo smart and .-atrical ! She would
make so much sport of her, for h-'ing
"ruled" s> by Harry! Hadn't she
told her; all the men were tyrants ?"
Ami this was Harry's first attempt to
govern her. No, no?it would jT do
lor her to yield.
So tlic pretty evening dress was
taken out; the tiiinmiiigs readjusted
and romoddelled, and "all the little et
netern.* of her toilet decided. Yes, she
would go?she had quite ma lo. up
her mind to that. Then she opened
her jewel I rase: a little note fell at
her feet. She knew the contents ve
ry well. It was from Harry?slipped
slyly into her hau I on her birthday,
with that pretty bracelet. It couldn't
do any harm to read it again. It was
very lover like for a year old hus
band, but she liked it. Dear Harry !
And she folded it hark, and sat
flown, more unhappy than ever?with
her hands crossed in her lap, ami
her mind in a most pitiable state of
Perhaps, after all, Harry was
right about Mis. May; and if he
wasn't, one hairof his head was worth
more to her than all the women in the
world. He had never said one un
kind woid to her?never! He had
anticipated every wi?h, He had been
so at l? nl ive and solicitous when she
was i|l. How could she. grieve him ?
Lov-e+r.jijiueretl!. The jVr.ei.ty robe
was folded up and puc away--the
jewels returned to their case?and

It was quietly but heartily said; the

fectly natural and very affectionate.
We thought: How pleasant tho

must be to the wife ! Many husbands
of ten yea's' experience arc ready
enough with the courtesies of polite
ness to the young ladies of their ac
quaintance, while they spi.ik with
abruptness to tho wife, and do many
rude little things without couside. ing
them worth an apology. Tho stranger
whom the}' may have seen but yester

although the subject may not be one
of the plcasantcst nature, with a ready
smile; while the poor wife, if she re

prese nce of the most fashionable stick

is e. thorough gentleman, who thinks
his wife in all things entitled lo pro

should he hesitate to show it? not in
sickly maud in attentions, but in pro

Though words seem little things,
and .-light attention nl inns' valueless,
yet, depend upon it they keep the
flame bright, especially if they are
natural. The children grow up in a
