A Double Mistake.
A very amusing historetto is told
of Count M., a gentleman of fortune,
his wife, and a young man who may
bo designated as Mr. .A. Tho latter,
a simple clerk in ono of tho railroad
offices, and the Count, aro cousin3.
The Countess, a very beautiful and
rather conceited woman, lived unhap
pily with her husband. For more
than a year past sho 1ms been nnder
tho idea tliat young A. was desperate
ly in lovo with her. Every lock tho
gentleman cast upon her when they
met, every pressure of the hand, every
new vest, every fresh growth of mous
tache was interpreted as an evidence
of ardent though pent up love. One
night quite late, Air. A. heard a ring
fit his door. Upon opening it, to his
great amazement ho beheld, in his
nocturnal visitor, tho fair Countess,
attired in a traveling dress, and carry
ing in her hand her jewel case.
"Henry," said she, throwing her arms
around his neck, "1 liavo come to re
quite your long and faithful attach
ment." "What attachment? I do not un
derstand you! "
"Your attachment to mcl I have
read it in your very look tor months
past. You lovo mc! My husband is
a monster. Let us fly to some dis
"Nonsense, madam! I love yon!
I never dreamed of sucli a thing!
You must have been dreaming. As
to flying to somo distant land you
know very well that I am an em
ployee, dependent for bread upon a
modest salary. xIIow tho deuco are
.wo to livo in your distant land, I
Bhould like to know?"
. "Hero aro my jewels, Our wants
will bo trifling."
"Pooh! pooh! you don't want mo to
livo on other people's diamonds, do
you? Let mo beg of you to return im
' diatcly homo."
The lady sobbed, and ought to
have been tempting.
"I cannot," sho eaiJ. , "It's too
loto. I seized tho occasion when tho
Count went to the Opera this evening,
to write a letter, avowing all my lovo
for you your passion for mo my
flight with you. By this tirno tho
letter is in his hand,and if I go back he
will murder mo."
"Zounds!" ejaculated tho gentle
man. 44 You mean ho will murder
Hero was a pretty business, to bo
sure. Tho lady wept and tho gentle
man burst into a cold perspiration. It
was now 2 o'clock in the morning.
Presently a sharp ring wa3 heard at
tho door. Poor A. turned pale, not
doubting that his enraged cousin had
couio tor satisfaction. Nerving him
self to tho effort, ho hid tho Countess
in acloset and went to tho door. It
was tbo Count who hud pulled tho
bell; but instead of being in a violent
rage, he only looked anxious:
"Henry, I want you."
"I am ready, " wa3 tho stoic re
ply. "That's right, old boy, I know I
could depend on von. Tho facts aro
these: 1 went to tfie Opera, this even
ing, und ought to have been homo at
11 o'clock; but as I was leaving the
theater, somo friends met mo, and in
sisted upon my supping with them,
and have kept mo until' this moment.
You know what a jealous fury my
wife is. You must go and mako my
peaco with her."
"Then you have not been home?"
What a load was taken off poor
A. '6 heart!
"I'll do my best," said ho. "Go
and wait for mo at tho Tortoni. I
will rejoin you in and hour."
Off weut tho husband, and as soon
as ho was safely at a distance, A . con
ducted tho Countess to her residence,
returned -to his friend and gaily slap
ping him on tho shoulder, assured
him that "it was all right." Tho
unconscious Count weut homo a
happy man and so ended tho ad
venture, but it may bo supposed
that tho lady entertains anything but a
tender sentiment towards her hus
Defining his Position on the
Dear Spirit Soma threo or four
years since I was guilty of an indiscre
tion, to call it by no harsher name, of
running for tho Legislature, in the
county of Persimmon, State of Hoo
sier. Tho party by which I was
nominated and supported had a clear
majority of threo hundred in tho coun
ty, and of course my flection was a fix
ed fact. At least I thought so, until
about threo weeks beforo the election.
About that time tho first wavo of the
Maino Law excitement ' reached tho
State, and ugly questions began to be
put to mo by voter? of both parties.
To take a position on either side
was dangerous, r.nd dodging seemed
tho only safe policy. Fortunately, I
had never belonged to any temper
ance socictv. That satisfied most of
tho anties. On tho other hand, I
never drank anything stronger than
coffee, and tho tomperuaco men took it
for granted 1 was ouo of them.
Things went off pretty smoothly iu
the canvas and land my opponent were
to make our last speeches in ono of
tho back townships on tho Saturday
preceding the election. .
It was a hard placo for a tcmpcr
anco man, and I was most thorough
ly cross-examined, during my speech,
as to my antecedents in connection
with temperance societies, and espe
cially whether I had ever belonged to
the Sons of Temperance; this order
being tho peculiar abomination in tho
neighborhood. My answer seemed to
satisfy the sovereigns, and I was con
gratulating myself that the last ordeal
I was slightly mistaken. Some
malicious political adversary had
whisoered it about the crowd that I
could not bear tho tast or smell of
whisky. This was a 6erious and
damaging charge, and my friends,
without consulting mo, determined
that a convincing proof of its falsehood
should bo given beforo I left tho
ground. . Tom W : , about as
hard a case as tho neighborhood affor
ded, was selected as a committee of
ono to carry out their resolution.
Just as I had mounted my horso to
leave, Tom approached mo with a
brimming tumbler of now whisky in
his hand, and asked mo to "jino tho
boys in a horn."
I glanced at tho crowd, and saw
that at least fifty votes wcro hanging
in tho scale. It was no time to delib
erate; and a couple of swallows of as
villainous whisky as ever camo from
tho still, found their way down my
A grunt of approval from the
crowd told their satisfaction; but I
was determined to have my revenge
for tho martyrdom I had Buffered.
Loaning over towards Tom in a con
fidential sort of a way, I said:
" Tom, I carry better liquor than
"Tho devil!" said Tom, "do you
carry a bottle?"
44 Certainly I do. But yon must
keep dark, and not let the fellows in
town know it."
This was a degrco of soundness on
tho temperance nuestion my friends
had not dared to hopo for in mo. Iti
was liko marrying a woman for beau
ty, and finding sho had a fojtuuo be
sides. By tho time tho crowd had gather
crcd around 113 I had extracted from
my saddle-bags a bottle of extract of
ginger, and handed it to Tom, with an
invitation to "try'it."
Tom did "try it."
"Lord gcmently!" gasped ho, as
tho burning compound took posses
sion of his mouth and throat, "what
is that? Water! water! water!"
I told him that it was tenth-proof
brandy ,.and tho crowd unanimously
swore that any man who carried li
quor that would mako Tom W

Youman, in a
learned lecture on
chemistry, said :
'What is the relation of oxygen to
tho living body ? Every animal
is busy drawiug in and throw
ing out air an increasing tidal
ebb and flow. Tho oxygon of tho uir
passes through the membranes of the
lungs, is taken up by the blood, and
carried to all parts of tho body. It
does here what it docs every where it
bnrn3. Slow combustion goes on in
the body, and carbonic acid and wa
ter aro produced. This combustion is
necessary to keep up heat and fever,
and tho oxygen ot tho air must have
carbon and hydrogen, in tho form of
food and drink, to feed upon. Cut off
a man from everything but air, and
the oxvrrcn at every breath will cut
away a portion of his own frame.
Tho most combustible parts are first
consumed: he grows lighter and more
emaciated ovcrv hour. First, the
lat disappears, then tho muscles are
assailed, and lastlv. tho devouring
giant, oxygen, attacks tho brain and
nerves, delirium ensues, and death
closes tho scene. Men say ho has
starved to death, but the sccutific truth
is that he has burned to cindcr3."

Have you been bred to the busi

" I can't say as I have exactly," re
plied the lout, " but I havo been bred

'spose, will answer all tho same."
" But," said the druggist," I should
liko to get a man that understands
something of tho business."

tho fellow, 44 1 conld soon learn I'm

A Curious Love Story.
A very curious love story is told by
ancient writers respecting Egirvard,
a secretary to Charlemagne, and a
daughter of that Emperor. Tho sec
retary fell in lovo with, tho Princess,
who. at length allowed him to visit her.
One winter's night ho stayed with hor
very late, and in tho meantime a deep
snow had fallen. If ho left foot-marks
wonld observod, and yet to stay would
exposo him to danger. At length the
Princess resolved to carry him on hor
back to a neighboring house, which
she did. It happened, however, that
from tho window of his bed room tho
Emperor saw tho wholo affuir. In tho
Assembly of the' Lord3, on the fol
lowing day, when Egirvard and his
daughter wero present, tho Emperor
asked what ought to bo done to a man
who compelled a king's daughter to'
carry him on her shoulders, through
frost and snow, in the middle of a
winter's night? They answered that
ho wa3 worthy of death. The lovers
wcro alarmed, but tho Emperor, ad
dressing Egirvard, said: "Iladst thou
loved my daughter, thou shonldst have
come to mo; thou art worthy of death,
but I give thee two lives. Take thy
fair porter in marriage, fear God and
lovo one another."
A gentleman named Lyon, from
Canada, was driving a cutter along
the road, a short distance Irom lwiit
land, Vermont, on Thursday, when
ho wa3 accosted by a rough looking
fellow on foot, who asked lum tor a
ride, which was grouted. Soon after
tho fellow grabbed him by tho throat
and robbed him of 1,200 and es

The countryman thought Uncle Sam

offico, and laying dow his 4pilo' at tho
window of tho delivery, "I guess I

Tho man insido looked at tho dis
play of 'specie currency," and coolly
said, "Wo never take more than threo
cents in coppers at any ono time it
is not legal tender abovo that sum."
Tho countryman looked at tho com

then belched out, "Look hero you;

A Chat About Carpets.
Everybody now-a-days has carpets,
and generally 44 bought " carpets, as
they used to bo called when we wero
young, to distinguish them from rag
carpets, and other carpets of homo-
mauo manufacture. .Most persons, at
least most women, can distinguish
the different variotics of carpet at
sight, and tell you which is ingrain
and which is imperial, which Brus
sels and which tapestry, which Wil
ton and which Axminster. Yet, wo
venture to say, few, even of tho ladica,
understand how they aro made to look
and wear so differently in a. word,
thb process of their manufacture. '
Carpets originated in Persia. That
country was long considered as pro
ducing the finest carpets in tho world.
Even to this day tho Persian carpets
and tho eaino may bo said of the
Turkish rival, if they do not excel,
tho most famous carpcta of Europo,
in the harmony of their colors. Tho
patterns, indeed, aro grotesque, a3
may he seen at any carpet 6toro, for
the English manufactures turn out a
very good imitation, which is much
used tor dining rooms, or otfier apart
ments whero it is desirable to havo
the carpet well covered. But theso
imitations hardly do justice to tho
colors of tho original. A real Per
sian is as brilliant as it is harmonious.
At tho great exhibition in London,
tho superiority of tho oriental carpets
in color, over those of Western Eu
ropo, was remarked by everybody.
"If you look at an ordinary velvet
carpet, you find tho back, instead of
presenting tho sauio pattern as tho
front, which tho ingrain does, to bo
apparently, a web of nothing, but
hemp'. Tho process of making vel
vet carpct3 in this way is of compar
atively new invention, and has contri
buted more than anything clso, to
that reduction in tho prico of such
fabrics which has been witnessed
within the past twenty yoars. In
these carpets tho wool is all worked
up on tho front, and the hempen
threads all thrown upon the back,
honco they can bo manufactured at a
greater economy than Kidderminster
carpets, in which, although they havo
a velvet surface, the thread is carried
through from back to front and from
front to back. Tho latter description
of carpets aro necessarily made of fino
wool, and consequently are much tho
softest, wear longer and do not whiten
in tho seems. But, on tho other hand
they cost considerably moro, nor can
they bo mado witli so many colors,
! being woven on a Jacquard loom.
Partly from their real superiority, but
partly also from their cost rendering
mom rarer, tney nre more iasnionauio
than the ordinary velvet carpets. . It
is doubtful, however, whether they
aro intrinsically worth tho difference
they cost. But, from tho compara
tively few colors employed in them,
thoy aro less gaudy than their cheaper
rivals, and, therefore, more liked hy
persons of subdued tastes and refined
Tho finest European carpct3, accor
ding to Dr. Ure, are mado at the Go
belins, Paris, to which tho famous
factory of Savouniero has been trans
ported. The royal Wilton carpets aro
also very beautiful. In these, tho pilo
is raised higher than in tho ordinary
Wilton. All WiHon. Kidderminster
and velvet carpets, havo tuo pile cut.
In tho imperial Lrussels the llgureis
raised above tho ground, and the pilo
of tho figure cut. In tho ordinary
Brussels tho pile is left uncut both iu
figuro and ground. Tho costly rugs
exhibited at carpet stores, m which
tho figures aro delineated almost a3
delicately as in a painting, aro not

Tho manufacture of carpets in
America is already an extensive and
lucrative business. A great many
carpets sold as En

merican; and 6oino of them arc not
inferior to tho imported. But wo
are compelled to go abroad still for
our more elegant carpets, there being,
as yet, noithcr the skill to mako such
carpets here, nor tho patronage to
warrant the employment of capital iu
