Anything for Peace.
'Stephen Thirsko, was a genuine
Yorkshire man, long-headed, shrewd
and sturdy?serving Mammon with
all his might in the great brick
the lory where he worked six hundred
'hands.' There everything went on
so promptly and regularly that it was
evident one dominant will ruled.
But no man is absolute; and if
Stephen ruled his six hundred'hands'
like an autocrat, he shrunk at home
into the obedient slave of one little,
pell<d woman. Mrs. Thiisko had
been a great beauty, delicate and
jjrnt'.e. Stephen had begun his mar
ried life by a tender submission to
the frailty what was such a contrast
to his own rude health, and now the
little woman he could carry like a
baby; ruled him like a czari.ta.
It was impossible to retrace tho
gl adual steps by which this iuflueutio
hud been gained. Thirsko was man
crouch to know that it was fata1 to
Iiis home-happiness ami his family's
welfare, and to make occasional de
terminations (o reform things; but us
yet they had come to nothing. Ho
could not bear his pretty Lydia's
tear:; and tho man who would not
tolerate the slightest opposition from
(he world, sacrificed anything and
everything in his home for peace.
They had two children, a son and
daughter?and as they reached man
hood and woman hood, the evils of a
household under such natural con
trol manifested themselves?for if
Mrs. Thirsko ruled her husband,
\ninny and Ada ruled her. Ada
was a beauty, and had not watched
ier mother's tactics in vain.
'1 shall rule George Aske, as
uoiher rules father,' she said one
night to her brother, in reply to his
assertion that 'Oeor-ife Aske would
make her know her own miild better.' i
'I m'h'i you be too sure of that Ada
?there are men, and inen. I know

'Father will never consent, nor 1

and then father's got to yield. As

'It is not very brotherly to be look

'I am going to ask her to-night?if
you don't want to be sick, you had
belter say a good word for Mary.'
Ada was wise in her generation,
and went right to Mrs. Thirsko.
?.Mother,' she said, Antony is com
ing to speak to you to-night about
Mary Mutton. Don't worry yourself
? it is only one of his fancies. Just
promise, him all he wants until my
wedding is comfortably over, then
you can tell father rthd have ti stop

'O, dear me, Ada ! It docs seem as
if no one minded my feelings. You
both know I must have pence, and
yet I suppose I am to be worried into
a fever about this Miss Button.'
'Well, mother, don't make Antony
angry to-night; say enough to keep
things smooth until next week Hover.
I don't want him to be sulky at my j
.So Antony found his mother in
one of her gentlest muods. Sho
listened patiently to his confession of
love for his sister's late governess,
and answered :
'Have I not always wished lb make
you happy in your own way, Antony ?
If Miss Hutten is necessary to your
happiness, why, I will speak to father
about her after Ada's wedding. It
won't do before il, indeed it won't.'
Antony was very grateful. Love is
always hopeful, and he wc^*tKo see
Mary that night, quite confident in
his mother's final success. A few days
afterwards Ada was married to the
richest commoner in Airedale, and
the presumptive heir of Tow ton
j baioue.ley. Aske was deeply enamor
ed of her beauty, but by no means
the man to he its slave. Many things
riva'ed Ada iu her heart, even iu the '
earliest days of her married life; his
estate, hi.s hunters, county matters, |
lie was an English gentleman of
the old order, an J had no very exal
ted ideas of women, except as tho mis
tresses of households and the
mothers of children. Ada's efforts
to establish a female autocracy in
Aske llall soon came to disastrous
failure. At first George 'pooh !
poo bed !' her orders and tried to
laugh away her petting and tears.
But he was not the man to put him
self out of the way for an unreason
able woman, and even this concession
was soon given up.
In three months it had come to a
simple announcement of his inten
tions, and a perfect indifference as to
how .>lie accepted them. Thus he
won hi say :
'Ada, I am going to meet the Tow
ton hounds in the morning?you had
better go with me?a gallop will do
I you good.'
Hut if Ada met the request with a
nagativc of any kind, he accepted it>
without demur?and if this produced
tears or complaints, he generally be
gan to whistle and left the room.
This 'rudeness' brc light on passion-i t c
I attacks of hysteria, and George went
j to the hunt, and sent .the family
physician to watch her through them.
\ cry soon poor Stephen had a
double burden of household trouble j
j to bear. Ada began to bring her
wrongs and humiliations home, and
Mrs, Thirsko warmly espoused her
cause. A complaining daughter and
a weeping wife were enough to make
the most splendid house miserable,
and they were but the elements out
of which far greater troubles were to
In tho mean lime Antony's affairs
were equal I) unsatisfactory. Mrs. J
Thirsko had spoken to Stephen about
Mary llulton, ami for the first time
iu her married life admitted a failure.
Antony would not believe that she
had done her best, and he forgot iu
this one denial the ninety and-ninc
unreasonable favors she had before
pi ecu red him.
Stephen's opposition Id Miss Hut
ton was sulky and positive. He dar
ed not, in the first [dace, disobey his
wife's orders to forbid the match. In
the second, he was angry at I he
authors of ll is new element ?fdis
coin fort in his home. In the third,
he was not prepared financially to
support another household. Ada's
settlement bail been a great drain up
on his business; he had had other
losses, and another wedding and
house furnishing, with the increased
allowance necessary to maintain it,
was really beyond his present means.
Ho was quite sensible of this last,
reason, but he did not want to admit
it even to his wife and son, so ho sud
denly and authoritatively forbid
Antony to marry any one at present;
and for some months there was a
groiving feeling of anger between
father and 'son. Then one day, after
a sib 1 my interview, Antony left his
homo without a word of farewell, and
Stephen, too proud and angry to seek
after him, had to bear, in addition to
his own sorrow and disapoiiitment,
the mother's fretful reproaches and I

that he cculd not put away his anx

Now, however, that Stopbon had

to slowly gather around him again

Wbeu Stephen was utterly bowed
down, suddenly Lydia Thirsko rose

Lovo in Humble Lifo.
In Eust Boston, a few woos since,
was horny to the grave, a maiden wife
id'not less than twenty years of age.
Her husband and lover, a young man
of twenty-three, was a mechanic.
They had loved each other from
childhood, and were to have been
married some six or seven month.-)
since, when she was prostrated by
consumption. Nearly all his leisure
(rout labor was passed at her bedside,
cheering her with prospects of restor
ed health ami a life of happiness; but
tho fell disease was too firmly im
planted in her system to leave any
hope of her recovery. When tho
physicians informed her that dc.ith
was inevitable, she expressed a desire
to partake of the .Sacrament of tho
Lord's Slipper, and her wish was
gratified. Her lover procured a car
riage, sat by her side, and bore her in
his arms to and from the Lord's table.
She. returned to her bed never again
to leave it in life. About a fortnight
before her death, she said that sho
had only one earthly wish ungrati
fied; she desired to he united to him
who had loved her so long, and so
truly, in the hope of being his in
heaven. He could deny her nothing
? he married death. Bolstered up by
pillows, ami supported by the embrace
of her mother, she was united to her
lover; her feeble voice was hardly
audible in responding to the questions
of the marriage ceremony. Sho was
his. ami said she could die without re
gret. From then unil she passed
away, she w s unable to speak above
a whisper; but she appeared happy,
and though wasted to skin and bone,
a pleasant smile left its impress on her
face as her soul returned to God wdio
^ Many cases have becu recorded of
people being married on the brink of
the grave, to accomplish some mater

long delayed justice; but rarely or
never have WC heard of poor peoplo
marrying under such circumstances,
purely for love. The stern realities of
life press so hardly upon the laboring
poor, that the finer feelings of their
souls have to make way for the cares
and toil of provi ling for the wants of
