UXCLK'S Wi:i)lING GIFT.
"So you're r"i" to oo married girls,
areVoiiP" saii Uitolo Nahum.
A littlo, si'.vor-haiiivl man, with deep
wrinkles plowed iti liis parehmeat-like
forehead, aud a tuit of bright, old
iashioued blue cloth, cailv garnished
with brass Imttous, ho looked gro
tosaueiv unlike the surroundings of
that elegant suit of drawiug-rooms in
which he l;kl3 1,10 ;lir)' godfather,
in an enchanted pahuv.
The crimson carpets, the sunshine,
gifting through draperies of gold-colored
satin until the marble statuettes
and carved alabaster vases seemed to
be steeped in an atmosphere of molten
sunshine; the faint scent of flower bas
kets placed here and there, made it an
apartment worthy of the handsomest
brown stone palace in New York; and
Uncle Nahmn marveled within him
self, as ho looked around it, as to
whether his brother Matthew hftd found
a mine of pold since he first came to
make his fortune in the great citv.
I'ucle Nahum, our readers will per
ceive, was but a simple old farmer, and
knew nothing of the hooks and crooks
by which the city people contrive to
dako a very howy appearance upon
verv small capital.
Eunice IViUn, his oldest niece, a tall
lovely brunette, as graceful as & silver
birch tree, with eyes and hair dark
enough for s gypsy, sat opposite, on a
low fauteull ol crimson velvet, her
slender fingers toying idly with the
golden festoon of chain that hung
around her iiock, while Nina, the
voungest sister, was nestling close to
tncle Kab urn's s hie., with her golden
curls almost touctiiii his ehoek, and
her blue ryes lixed, with a sort of in
nocent, childish wonder on his face.
"Yes, Uucie Milium,'1 said Nina,

eyes to .Eunice's faun. She neither
Bpoko nor looked up. Evidently sho
had no intention of confirming her sis
ter's cordiiilly-giveu invitation.
"No, child, no," said the old man,
evidently disappointed; "I'd cut a poor
figure at your grand weediugs. Only I
hope you've chosen well."
"There can be no doubt at all about
that," said Eunice, haughtily, "1 am
to marry Mr. Lusduuer, a broker, and
Nina is engaged to Mr. Valconcr, ft
a peutiemau of iudepeudent wealth."

the old man, quietly. "Never forget

You'd like that, gals, wouldn't ye?"
Eunico broko out into a peal of irre
sistible laughter, heedless of the hurt
look which gradually crept over tho
face of the old man, but Nina pressed
her rose-red lips to his wrinkled brow
Rod Btroked his hand softly in hers.
"It's very kind of you to think of it,
uncle, I'm euro," said Nina, "and

comment, ns sho brushed her curls

to the evening dance, for which sho
"Why, Eunice, how can you talksoP"
said innocent little Nina. "I think he's
ever so nice and kind."
"Very kind," observed Eunico, sar
castically, "with his his horrid dusty
old receipt books! I declare, Nin, I
thought I should havo laughed myself
to death." 1
"He meant it all in kindness, Eu
nice." "I dare say, but I wish ho would
keen his kindnoss until it is called
for," said the elder sister.
"He wished mo to visit Chicoray
Falls on my wedding tour and I shall

had elapsed when tidings ciirno of the

"It's very strange," said Matthew
Dalton, discontentedly, when the legal
statement of his brothor'a monetary
affairs was laid before him. "I thought

"No," said Mr. D.ilton, colotin,',
and looking somewhat uneasy, "you

Two little leather-bound receipts
books, worn aud greasy with ago and
beaming marks of frequent mage, were
found in Nahum Datum's stained piuo
desk, labeled respectively with tho
names of his two nieces, "Eunico and

fairies and pictured orange wreaths

wedding guests were obtained on cred

people were paid!
For the next day Matthew Dalton' s
entire and total failure was ringing
over all the town, and with this was
also involved tho ultimate ruin of his
son-in law, Herbert Losdcmer.
From a suite of eiegant apartments
at the St. Saffron hotel, Mrs. Lesder
ner descended to the second floor in a
respectable tenement-house, and great
were her weepings and wailings and
gnashing of teeth.
Jerome Falconer struggled bravely
against the adverse tide as long as
strngrles were of any avail, but
the failure of his father and brother-in-law
induced a withdrawal of con
fidence and credit, and his temporary
"ro you've come down in the world,
too, said Eunice, bitterly, as sho
seated herself in the pleasant little
room whore Nina was domiciliated.
"Up in tho world, rather," laughed
the cheery girl, "why, we are on tho
third ptory hern, and to tell you the
truth, Eunice, I like it a great deal bet
ter than I did the big house on Mad
ison avenue, with its hollow-sounding
rooms and frescoed walls, and marble
paved halls. To bo sure, it isn't so
jileasant to be poor, but as long as Je
rome is well and in pood spirits "
"i leasant, pouted Eunice. "J some
times r.lniost wish that I was dead.
What ore vou jroinc to do nowP"
For Mrs. Falconor was examining
the state of her little ranrre stove with
dimpled housewifely interest.
"What do you think?" she asked
archly, by way of response.
"1 am sure I haven t the least idea."
"I am going to try my hand at cake
baking. Jerome delights iu fresh cake,
and Undo Nahum's receipt-book cer
tainly ought to be used. Don't you
"No, indeed; "I havo no heart for
such follv," signed Eunice.
"Folly"! I don't call it folly," laughed
Nina. "I don't think Uncle Nahum
could have given me a more acceptable
gift. Of what use are all my point
lace, jewels nnd cashmeres now?"
As she spoke sho opened tho curious
little volume, dark-hued, and fastened
with a little tongtio of discolored leath
er, which slid beneath a strap of the
same to fasten it.
"What a queer liitle book," she said,
"and what uu odd pocket at the end.

They were. The end pocket or com

with a bit of waxed linen thread.
Uncle Nahum's juaint fancy had
taken that peculiar turn, and each
worn little receipt book contained two
thousand dollars in fifty-dollar bills.

sisters had recoverod in some degroo
from their astonishment, "there is Un

estimably valued just at present? Oh,
it i could only sco tho Hear old man

And Nina burst into tears, which
flowed from very minglod sources.
A little while ago f 2,000 would havo

parative wealth the foundation, as it
were, oi a new fortune. Tho old man
could scarcely havo taken a more se

green" in tho hearts of his two niccos.
And years afterward, when Eunico
and Nina wero onco more restorod,
through tho instrumentality of Uncle
Nahum's oddly-given present, to com
petence, if not to wealth, tho worn old
receipt book occupied a position of
honor on tho rosewood shelves of tho
carved library bookcase.
Tho Texas agricultural ants go to
work in a methodical manner. They
mako a nest beneath tho ground and
raised several inches abovo it, nnd clear
away a spaco on either side of several
feet, from which branch through tho
grass several roads. Curiously enough
this grass about the nest is all of one
kind. All the other weeds aro cleared
away. Somo peoplo say the ants plant
the grass seed. However, they do
gather it and feed to the young and
storo the grain-houses under ground.
Here you see another evidence of in
telligence. Tho soeds stowed away
would naturally sprout after a rain,
but iu some cases, when they become
damp tho ants tako them to the surfaco
and dry them iu the sun; in other cases
they poison tho seed by biting it, so
that it does not sprout
In Franco, according to the statisti
cians, suicides aro rapidly increasing.

Retarding Old Arc.
Tho most rational treatment with a
view to retard old age is, in tho first
place, to endeavor as far as possible to
counteract the excessive action of at
mospheric oxygon; secondly to retard
tho deposit of ossifie matter nnd ns far
as possible to dissolve partially formed
calcareous concretions. Distilled water
aud diluted phosphoric acid aro believ
ed by Mr. de Laev Evans to havo the
desired effect. When considering their
special action wo cannot but fully coin
cide with him as to their ellicacy in re
tarding old ago by their combined
chemical notion. Now distilled water
alouo has a powerful action owing to
its solvent properties, thereby dissolv
ing nnd excreting tho excess of earthly
salts which otherwiso would become
blocked up in tho system, gradually
storing up theso blockages which in
time causo old aire. The solvent prop
erties of distilled water aro so great
per so that on distillation in vessels it
actually dissolves small particles of
them. Now the generality of waters
contain more or less carbonate of lime,
and are to be avoided, especially thoso
from chalky soils, tending, as they do,
to produce calcareous depo'-its. The
action of distilled water as a beverage
is briefly as follows: First, its absorp
tion into the blood is rapid; second, it
keeps soluble those salts already exist
ing in the blood, thereby preventing
their undue deposit; third", it facilitates
in a marked degree their elimination
by means of excretion. After midd'.o
life a daily iw of distilled water is
highly betelieial to thoso desirous of
retarding old a ?.
Mr. Dana's Little Mint.
I learn that Mr. Dana's income from
that paper is not only princely, but that
it is exceeded onlv by that of Mr. Den
nett. When Mr. Dana took bold of the
Sun he mado a contract with tho trus
tees to edit the paper at a salary of
10,Oi0 a year, lie had then some
twenty shares in the paper. Said he:
"Now if the profits of tho paper are
large 1 think I ought to have a interest
in them outside of ruy salary, arl I
propose that all dividends above 2o per
cent, shall be divided, and that 1 have
halt" The stockholders, to whom a
dividend of 25 per cent, seemed not
only very large, but very improbable,
said: "Why, of course, if we declare
any divident over 25 per cent, you shall
have one-half." "Will you make a
coutract to that . fleet for ten years?"
asked Mr. Dana. The stockholders
agreed and the contracts were made.
Within two years the paper paid over
50 per cent., and for a number of years
has not paid less than iW. The ten
year contract expired a year ortwo ago
and it was renewed, with this change,
that Mr. Dna gets one-half of all tho
dividends over 40 per cent. I hear on
best authority tbat Mr. Dana's share
last year, including his salary was
