Tlio Wife as a Financlal IIelp-3Icct.
Manv woraen are extravaeant, Bbsurdly
and thonghtlessly bo, and ruin their hus
banils fmanciallv. Mauy men are miserly
and mean, thoufthtlessly sti absurdly and
unwisely so, and deslrojr not only their
wives' happineas, but their own also. All
thlfl arisea from a laok of perfect trust in
each other. It is taken for granted that
the wife ia incapable of correot reasoning
or ood judgment in the use bf money,
and instead of finding a valuable sympa
thizsr and help-meet in thia respect, the
husband so treats her that she soon needj
all her reasonine, and wit, too, to Ret
enough money from her husband for her
personal expenses. His businesg is to win
it from the world, and hers to get it from
him. There are some cases where one or
the o'her of tha parties sometimes the
woman, and oftener the man does not
seem capable of using really gcod judt
ment iu regard to money matters. In
seneral the woman is apt to use as good
jungment as the man, and instead of
being compelled.to eraploy all her reason
ing faculties in " coaxing " it from her
husband, she onght to be eucouraged to
put thern to a better use, as she would, if
he would cive her a chauce. If he would
consult her, and above all things encour
aee her to use her judgment, and confer
with her in regard to whatever conoerned
both, he would be a rioher man, and she
a happier woman. It is humiliating to a
woman of any spirit to be obliged to beg
for every ceut, and theu have it doled out
to her s if she was aure to use it fool
ishly, if not curbed aud checked. And
the most fond and loving of husbands
often do this very thing. They do it, not
realizing how muoh they loso in not mak
ing a true confidant and help-meet of the
wife. The wife, on the other hand, feels
hurt and btlittled, and not being allowed
to use for herself her reasoning faculties
or her own judgment, gradually settles
down to such a state of things, and en
durea it only because she sees no way out
of it. She dislikes to say to her husband
in so many words, " Why do you not
trust to rny judgment V" She fears he
would misuudorstaud her and think she
was setting np her own judgment against
his, and so fche plois on day after day iu
the old grooves, and her husband thought
lessly does the same. It is a pity that
she could not oontrive some way of put
ting him in her place for afew weeks that
he might have his eyes opened. Little
Mrs. Gray did this, and a late number of
Peterson's tella us with what success.
The young husband and wife had just
risen from a nicely f-pread table, and the
room was neatly and taatefully furnished.
There was no indication of poveity
there, yet Mts. Gray's voice and manner
were f altering as she asked for some post
" How many V" asked her husband,
"Three will do. I thought I would
write to mother and the girla."
" Did you ever rockon up, my dear, how
much you spend for postage stampa in
the oourse of a year ?" asked Mr. (iray,
8s he lit his f ragrant cigar. " Well, let
us see. You write at least five letters a
week, which is flfteen centa, aud fifty-two
times fifteen are seveu dollars and eighty
cents a year, to say nothing of paper and
envelopes. I havn't a correspoudent in
the world, outslde my business."
"Your friends," said the wife, "live
near jou, white mine are in another Btute.
Do you wish me to give up writing to
them V" Aud her faoe took on an extra
tiuge of color.
"By no meano. I merely mentioned
the eost of the thing. liut I must go.
" Albert I" she said, timidly.
.Mr. Gray turned back.
" Can you leave me five or six dollars ?
, I want to go down towu to-day."
I " Five or six dollars 1" exclaimed Mr.
I Gray in astonishment. " What on earth
K, can you want with five or six dollars ?''
W "I knew you would wonder, but I have
, needed some money for a long time to get
somn neoessary articles."
" I gave you two dollars last week."
" I know it, aud I used it for materials
to work up for our church fair."
" Church fiddlesticks 1" said Mr. Gray
conteroptuously. " Why, I dau't see what
you ned with five or six dollars."
" Hre is a list of what I need," said
Mrs. Gray, handing a little fclipof paper to
her lmabaud :

" For the sirrple reason that, hltherto, I
havo bought them myself, with money
earncd by plain sewing. liut since ray
illtiess in the autumu it hurts my sido
to sew much, and I have had to give it np."
Mrs. Gray onjoyed her husband'a horri

" I had too much pride to bfg of you
what I could oarn myself," she said with
" Well, here is four dollara and a half.
Trv to make that do." And ha hurried off.
Mrs. Gray sighed.
" He means well," ahe said, " but men
seem to think women are like childrou,
not. to be trusted with monev."
Meanwhile Mr. Gray was soliloquizing.
" Strange, how extravapant women are.
Annie is the best little wife in the world,
but she doea not know tho worth of
money anv more than child. That four
dollars ard a half will be spent before
night. Women cant keep money."
Mrs. Grav wentdown town, as intended;
but she wa'lked itstend of riding, in ordf r
to save her mony. While down she felt
faint and htwgry from her walk, and
would have liked a lunch, but she had no
manev to spare.
" Oh I by the way, Annie, did you go
down to-day ?" asked Mr. Gray at supper
" Spent every cent, I'll bo bound," jok-
" No. I have exactly two cents lef t ; but
I walked both ways, got no crepe de lisse,
and went without lunohoon although faint
Mr. Gray looked shocked.
" Why did you not come to me ?"
" Beoause it was out of the way ; and
because, to tell the truth, I felt too cross."
"Crosa with me V"
" Yes, with you ;" and poor Annie's
grievances burst forth.
" To be going along the street hungrier
than any beggar, while mv husband is
known as the successful Mr. Gray I To
have no money in my pocket, because my
husband thinks I am not to be trusted I
Uefore I married you I was in business
the same as you ; that is, I earned my
living by teaching ; you earned yours by
trading. Now, suppose when we married
you had given up your business to assist
me, or because it interfered with your
new duties, and I allowed you no money
to spend as you choose. I dressed you
well, to be aure; but gave you no money
without the whya and wherefores, and
whithers being inquired into ; in short,
treated you aa you do me V"
" You exaggerate the case, Annie. Men
and women are differently Bituated. I
sbould think you would be glad to be
saved the trouble of earning a livelihood."
"But just consider the disadvantages
of an empty purse. Put yourself in my
placp. How would you like itV"
" Why if I only had to ask first-rate."
" Well, then, suppose you let me carry
the pocket-book for a week."
" But, Annie, it isn't practicable. You
couldn't attend to business at the store."
" Of course not. It is only your per
sonal expenses I will regulate. You come
to me for what money you wish to spend
for yourself ; that is all ; and give me
your word that you will take no money
from the stnre."
" All right. I'll do it, just to show you
that it is easy enough. Here'a the pocket
brok." And he gave it into her hand.
" But I'll take a quarter, firat. to begiu
on I "
" What do you want of a quarter ?"
" Well, here are two ten cent pieces ;
try to make that do. Did you ever reckon
up how much your cigars coat in the
year ? Let me see. You smoke at least
two a day, at an average coat of ten cents
apiece, which amounts to one dollar and
forty cents s week. Now, fifty-two times
one forty makea seventy-two dollara and
eighty cents a year, to say nothing of
those vou give to your friends. A hun
dred dollars will 6carcely cover your ex
penses in that line."
" As our old friend Abigail Stillman
says, ' Who'd a-thunk it,' " said Mr. Gray,
laughing; but he was surprised to find
the sum so large.
The next morning Mr. Gray had gone
some diatance from the house before he
remembered that he had only twenty-five
" I'll risk it," said he to himself. " Per
haps I'll not want to buy anything. I'll
show Annie that a man can do without
" Ilello, Gray I" cried a voice, interrupt
ing his reilections. " What is the brain
study about?" It was his old friend,
Tlie two men had not met since Mr.
Gray'a marriage, and as Fratik was to re
main in town for a week, Mr. Gray in
vitpd him bome.
Il lit a cigar and handed its mate to
Frank ; as he did thia the two conversed
old times till they reached Mr. Gray'B
plaje of business, when tbey separated,
Frank agreeing to be at the Gray's at six
o'clock. Aunie was apprised of his com
ing by a note from her husband.
Going home that night, as was his in
variable custom, he ran into Benton'a to
buy aome cigars. Benton was surprised
to see him drop the dozen he had taken
" Are they not good ?" inquired the
uviuer. o mintt tuem our choisest "
"They are good. But on secpnd
thought I will not take any to-night.
Mr. Gray had always purchased cigars
as he used them j but now he wiahed he
had a box at home. However, he decided
to ask his wife for some money, and run
out and fill his case without his friend's
knowltdge. Twenty-fourhours hadpassed,
and he had already begun to experience a
feeling of shame, and a disiuclination to
ask for money. A thought of Auuie
crossed hia mind. " IMhaw I ehe doesu't
have to treat her friends to cigars," he
Frank Haymond was already at hi
house, and Annie had a tempting little
supper for thtmj aud Annie was looking
When supper was over, he took Annie
aside, and asked for a dollar, which she
gave him, grudglugly. Then he excuaed
himself for a moment, and bought some
cigars. They were wretched aff irs, how
ever, aud filled tho house with a villainoua
odor, for he had to get them at a new
place. Benton's being too f ar olT.
The next day the two friend? btarted
out together, when Mr.Gray, with an air
of having forget somothiug.said, 11 Kicuse
me a miuute."
" I'll go baok with you, if you have
forgotteu anything," baid Mr. Uaymond.
Mr. Gray clappod hia hand on his
" I thought I had forgotten my pocket
book, but I haven't," he said. " So it's
all right," and then he hurried on, hia
cheeks tingling with shame at tho deceit.
But he could not risk having his friend
go back with him, and stand by while he
aakcd for money.
Mr. Gray was lucky that day. He had
no calla for money, and bo had half a
dozen of those horrid cigars left, a couple
of which he 8tnoked on the street after hia
friend left him. In fact, he coucluded to
risk another day in the same way. But
on this day ho realized tho old adage, "It
never rainabut it poura," for from being
asked to chango a bill, togetting his coat
ripped, and asking for credit at his tailor's,
the day was a sories of mortifications.
Annie was unawaro of all this. Iu fact
she thought her husband was failing to
realize the situation, so when, at night,
Mr. Gray asked her for money to spend
the next day, she wickedly put him off
with some excuse, and ingeniously evaded
tho request until he waa forced to profer
it before his friend.
" You want a dollar or two I What do
you want with a dollar or two ? "
" There, Annie, don't bother a fellow.
I'm in a hurry.
But with great deliberation she drew
out a qnarter, and laid it down, then
another and another.
" Let me see three quarters seventy
five, ten is eighty-five ten ninety-five,
and here is a three-cent piece nlnety
eight. centa. Will that do ?"
"Yes," and Mr. Gray bustled them into
his pocket and hurried from tho room.
Ile wa8 in hopes his friend would in
quire into the cause of tbe f-cene, when be
would tell him of the cornpact and how it
originated. It would then pasa as a jokc.
But Mr. Haymond did not make any re
mark. Instead he thought to himself :
" Good gracious I What a grind she
isl And I thought her so pretly. I
never thought that Albert would make
such a meek husband. Catch me getting
married and having quarters doled out to
me that way I
He pitied his friend's embarrasament,
but did not appear to notice it. Instead,
he chatted unconcernedly of old friends
and pait times. SuddeDly turning a cor
npr they met two mutual acquaintances.
Hand shakingg and inquiries followed,
and the four had so muoh to say that Mr.
Gray decided to rend a note to his part
ner, and spend the forenoou with his
Tho party now adjourned to a restaur
ant, and Mr. Haymond, aware of the ex
act aroount of his, Mr. Gray's funds, or
The next day, which was Sunday, Mrs.
Gray, without being asked, gravely
handed her husband fifty cents. Mr.
Haymond was present, but did not appear
to notice it. He was apparently engrossed
in the book he was reading. But he
heard Mr. Grav ask,
" What's that for ? Oh, the contribu
tion box I Thank you I" But to himself
he added :
" Why not save it to go with the twen-ty-five
cents I have already, so as nnt be
compelled to ask for money on Tuesday ?
Then I can succeed in getting some for
Monday's trip without the knowledge of
, my friends, and thia absurd farce will
end without any more unpleasantness."
I Before separating, a little excnraion to
I Beech Island was proposed for Monday.
I Mr. Gray invited them, meantime, to
spend the evening at hia hou'se. Annie
was in excellentspirita; sang, and plnyed,
and was altogethcr charming. Mr. Hay
mond, remembering the money, decided
tnat matnmony was a snare when women
were so deceptive.
Monday morning came all too soon ;
for try as he would he could not get the
attention of Annie, when he endeavo'ed
to broach the subject of tbe projected
trip. Fidgeting with his knife and fork,
he cleared his throat at last, and made a
Mrs. Grav elevatpd her eyebrows.
"Tothe Island? Pray what for ? It
is hardly the time for excursions."
Mr. IUymond really pitied his friend's
evident distrtbs, so he said, jokingly :
"Why, you see.-Mrs. Gray, we want to
get off for a time, as we used to when
The lady amiled grimly and said :
" Albert is, as you see, too extravagant
by half. I cannot, in the present state of
our finances, give my consent to hia go
ing." With these words, spoken with
great composure, she walked off, leaving
the gentlemen to themselves.
" Albert, I never would stand that 1"
said Frank, vehementJy. " To be tutored
like a schoolboy 1 Haven't you anv monev
! at the store ? If not, call upou me for any
! amount, and let us hurry, or we shall
j " No. I am afraid I cannot go. I am
i pledged not to take any money from the
Btore, and it would not be right to accept
a'iy from you."
! Glad of an excuse, Mr. Gray then told
j his friend the secret of hia wife's con
i "Whewl so that is it," Baid Frank.
i " Well, I'm glad to have my faith in
i womanhood restored : but isu't she over-
doing the matter? Did you over refuse
her money before others ?"
" I think I did last summer, when Mrs.
Oseood was visiting her. They wished
to visit a friend residing in Biddleford.
I thought it was foolish and told my wife
bo, aud finally refused my wife the money.
The truth ls," apologetically, " I had met
with some heavy Iosses, and felt that we
" Why not have allowed her to use her
own judijment V Perhapa ahe intended to
ecotioinize in other ways," said Frank.
" I believe she said somethiug of the
kind. But to tell the truth, I had got
into tbe way of thinking that women
needed to be continually curbed, or they
would run into extra vagances."
" It'a a shame to treat a high spirited
woman in that way."
" I realize it now, f ully, more f ully than
you can, unless you go through with my
experience. Aunie said she had done
plain sewing to pay for things ahe needed
rather than ask me for the money ; I un
derstand it now; I would far rather have
earned the ruouey for our trip by sawing
wood thau have asked for it. Faucy hav
iirg to always ask I"
" Do you know, Albert, I am glad this
has happttned V I may marry sometirae j
iu fact, I'm thinking of it strougly, and
now I shall avoid the course you have
taken. Otherwise I presume I might
have done just tbe same. I believe a
great many men do."
" Do ? Why, yes. My mother never
had a siugle penny without aj-king fa'her
for it, and she helped to earu it all, and
was prudeuce and iudustry personified.
I'll turnover a new leaf. Ab, here come
Mr. Haymond, to Mr. Gray'a great re
lief, said it would not be poasible for him
to go on the proposed trip, owing to un
forseen circuinntaucea, whereupon, Mr.
Gray, in au oil-hind manner, ptoposed
that aa Frank could not go, they ahould
all come to hia house that evening again.
" My wife will be glad to see you," said he.
The week had paased, and " Hichard
was himself again," or could bo ,if he
choae; but hia wifo had mirrored his
past actiona so truly and forclbly that he
had no wish to repeat himself. Annie
had taken care to curb his extravagancra
by giving him always a little lesa than be
asked for, and invarlably inquiring just
how he spent it, and, meantime, reckon
ing up how much ho had spent each day,
with great exactness. All this, as he
knew, was copied from his own custom.
Besides, ho rellected. if he found it so dls
agreeable for a week, how much more so
must it seem, year aftnr year, with no
prospect of a change ? In sborl, he felt
himself to be the meanest man in exlst
ence. " 'Tia ono half to own it, and the
othrr half to reform," we suspect.
" There, Albert," said his wife, " I am
glad the farce is ended.
Itwa8 Tuesday evening, at half-past
six, preclaely, when Mrs. Gray said this.
At the same time she handed her hus
band hia pocket-book ; and then ahe re
turned to her seat.
Mr. Gray counted the money carefully,
and then divided it into two equal piles.
This accomplished, he crossed over to
his wife and placedonein her lap, saying :
" Ilenceforth we will share alike. Buy
what you choose, I have faith in your pru
dence and judgment. I am not infallible.
Why need I sit in judgment upon you V"
Mrs. Gray's eyes glistened with pride
and happlness, as she replied :
" Believe me, Albert, you will never re
gret this ; for now I shall have an oppor
tunity to use my reasoning faculties."
And AIbrt never did regret it. Chris

Frcnks of Forgetfulness.
Of all the ilta to which flsh ia heir,
forgetfulness ia the one that furnishes the
greatest number of laughable episodea ;
and while many of them are very annoy
ing, the roirthful feature that ia their al
most invariable companion affords a cer-
tam aegree oi compensation. JNear one
of our Atlantic sea-ports there resides an
old whaling captaiu commonly known as
Uncle Gurdon. To keep from getting
rusty, he made his home on the river
bank, where he could keep a boat, and fish
or paddlo about as much as he liked. The
plnce was about five miles from the city,
anu, as occasion required, Uncle liurdon
and his wife. would journey tnwnward
for the purpo9e of shoppiug. Heaching
the city, the horse and wagon would be
left at the water-trough on the Parade,
and each would go in different directions,
carrying their bundles to thia corumon re
ceptacle. the first through waitiug for the
other. Un one ot these shopping excur
sions Uncle Gurdon made several tripa
to the wagon, finding each time that
additions had been made to the store of
bundles a sign that his wife was buay.
Having completed his purchases, ho un
hitched his horse, and the ferry-boat hav
ing arnved, cumbed into the wagon and
drove on board. While cros3ing the river
one oi his acquaintances stepped up and
asked how he was getting on. " Well,
1 m getting on nicely, but I m bothered
juat now. " Why, is anything going
wrong t" "Xo, nothing special : but I
came down to do &ome shopping. and I've
forgotten a parcel I waa to get," and tho
old gentleman scratched his head in
perplexed manner. " Well, I wouldn't
worry. You will think of it next time,"
said the neighbor; and the boat having
reached the Jandiug, Uncle trurdou drove
astiore, aud went ou toward home. When
nearly half-way there he was met by
auother friend, who stopped to have a
chat. " IIow do you do to-day, Uncle
Gurdon V" he asked. " Oh, nicely, nicely;
tnnugh i'm a mt worried just now,
" Worried ? what about Y" " Well, you
see, rve been to town shopping, and
there's a parcel of some kirwl that I've
forgotten. I can't think what it is, and
lt bothers me." "Oh. never mind it
You will recollect what it is before yougo
again. By-the-way, Uncle Gurdon, how
is your wife V" " Jerusalera I " cried
Uncle Gurdon, slapping hia knee with
great energy. " It's my wife that I've
forgotten 1 She went to town with me
to do some shopping, and I was to wait
for her." And Uncle Gurdon turned
around, and went back to the ferry for
the parcel that he had left behind.

The following anecdote is related of
Mr. James Sheafe. who yeara ago was a
leadlng grocer in Biddeford. It appears
that a man had purchased some wool of
him, which had been weighed and paid
for, and Mr. Sheafe had gone to the
desk to get change for a note. Happen
ing to turn hia head while there, he saw
iu a glasa which swung so as torefl'ct
the shop a stout arm reach up and take
from the sbelf a heavy white oak cheese.
Instead of appearing suddenly and rebuk
ing him for the theft, as another would,
and thereby losing his custom forever,
the crafty old geutleman gave the thief
his change aa if nothing had happened,
and then, under pretense of lifting the
bag to lay it on hia horse for him, took
hold of it, and exclaimed, " Why, blest
me, I must have reckoned tbe weight
wrong." "Ohno,"said the other, "you
may bo sure you havo not, for I counted
with you." " Well, well, we won't dispute
the matter ; it is easily tried," said Mr.
Sheafe, putting the bag into the scales
agaiu. " There," said he, "I told you so.
I knew I was right. I made a misUke of
nearly twenty pounda. However, if you
don't want the whole, you ueedn't have it ;
I'll take part of it out." " No. no." said
tho other, staying the hauds of Mr. Sheaf"
on their way to the Btringa of the bag,
" I'll take the whole." Aud this he did,
payiug for hia dlshonesty by receiviug
the skim-milk cheese at the rate of forty
five centa a pound, the price of the wool.

EUREKA HEALTH CORSET!
Special attention is called to the following features for
which the Eureka Health Corset is justly commended by tho
Medical Profession, and where it has already been introduced:
It is constructed with the Pateutetl Elastic Side
JOace, specially to avoid undue pressure upon the Yital Or
gans of the Wearcr. It is made so that the Patented Adjust
able and Detachable Shoulder Straps may be applied, enabling
the wearer to transfer to the shoulders the weight of the Skirts.
It fits the body like a glove, and yet affords Perfect Free
dom of Movement in every position of the wearer. It is
made with our Patented Clasp, which is the only one that
will not become unfastened while tho Corset is worn. The
Glasps and Double Busk are made from Pinest Watch Spring
Steel, and the Corset is Handsomely Embroidered very Ele
gant in Style made of the Best Material, and will out-wear
any other Corset made. Sold by
