TROY, MO., WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 25,
I considered it a particularly ill wind
that blew mo to Kahway, and stranded
me thtre for tho tummcr of '06 Seen
in the light of later events, it is not a
wind to complain of. Hut, jus at first,
it was rather rough t give up a camp in
Adriondacks with some of tho choicest
spirits of the NetionallAcademy, and do
clino upon Kahwav for niv summer
studies. All for tho reason that "an in
scrutable Providence (vide obituary) had
soen fit to remove our beloved brother
(meaning my sister Lizzie's husband)
from this vulo of tears."
Now, her husband was a protty poor
investment, from the beginning, ile was
tho pastor of a small church upon a sal
ary, which I am bound to state, was no
smaller than his talent. What Lizzie
O I . , . . . '

blind credonco that belongs to some faith
ful souls, and sho mourned him os ten
derly as if ho had not left her a penni
less widow, with two helpless infants on
her hoods. The mourning I had noth
ing to say about but tb infants 1 Well,
they and Lizzie wero in one scalo, and tho
Adirondacks in tbo other. The moun
tiin went up, as it is proper for moun
tains to do. I had no inoro money than
a tolerably obscure young artist would
be likely to have, and it was made clear
to mo that my year's savings would bo
better invested in keeping up Lizzie's
little home at Kahway than in tho other
affair which was purely personal.
This was how I came to settle thcro,
and though I grumbled in secret, I was
not such a brute us to let Lizzie know it,
On the contrary I adapted myself to the
situation, and lound it not so bad alter all.
1 here wero sumo prutty bits of wood and
water in tho vicinity, a graceful outline ol
hills not so faraway, and some low-lyiug
pasturelunds, with a silver ribbon of
stream winding and widening through
theni ; also a oow or two, generally in
patieut contemplation on tho banks, or
wadiDg knee deep iu tho tranquil tide.
Enough for artist need, if not for artists
aspiration ; and better practice for me in
the end than the ambitious themos I so
ardently desired to attempt. 1 naturally
had my dreams of mountain gorges, with
inaccessible pine trees overhanging roar
iug torrents, and all that sort of thing.
But that ill wind of Lizzie's saved me
from making a fool of myself, I dare say,
and as it was, my pictures of "Bonuic
Brook, near Kahway," and "Morning in
the Meadow," wero hung upon the eyo
lino at the next spring exhibition, wlioro
they brought mo substantial recognition
as a "rising artist.
Something better still came bofore that
Lizzie introduced me to several of tho
church members who culled upon hor
after my arrival, and I had invitations to
toa parties and sociables. They wereu't
very brilliant, and I used to get pretty
well bored. But one night things grew
more lively. Dancing was not on the
programme, as a rule ; the church pcoplo
wero rather straight-laced and afraid of
it ; but somebody went to tho piano nud
rattled over "The Culedonions," and then
a sudden stirring of young blood set
every body to choosing partners. My
hostess was kind enough to select one for
"I'll introduco you lo Miss Carring
ton's friend, Miss Ashley. You know
Miss Carringlon ?"
I bad not that honor.
"Ah 1 then I am happy to have the
ploasuro of making your acquaintance.
Misa Carringlon is one of our most
charming young ladies- You will be
enchanted with hor."
1 shrugged my shoulders mentally.
So far I had not found tho Kahway
young ladies particularly facinating ;
perhaps because, like tho lingers ut tho
old song, "my heart was in tbe High
lands, my heart was not there," und I was
no fair judge of their charms. I suffered
myself to bo led up to Miss Carriogton,
and submitted to tho introduction ; be
ing punished immediately for my imper
tinent sense of "submission," by her
careless rejection of my band for tho
"Thanks. But Miss Carrington pre
ferred not to danee at present."
"Perhaps Miss Ashley will bo more
obliging," my bostoea said, rathor spito
fully. "Whero is y.ur frjend, Miss Car
ringlon ? Oh, I see bcr now at tbe
And 1 was carried off unresisting to be
presented to a tall, slender, dai k eyed
girl, who stood with her pretty disdain-

and who acknowledged my existence with
the same self-possessed indifferenoe that
Miss Carrington had displayed. Sho
was gracious enough, however, U aocept
mo for her partner, und I was piqued into
a determination to melt tho fine frost of
her manner before I left her. So I talked

ladies bat as to eoo for whom one's

pedestal ; sho was won chiefly I think by
my admiration of Min Ashley, which
indeed was so manifojt in tho persistence
with whieh I stuck attentively to her side,

resign her to another partner. Thero arc

not mistaken, the admiration oflho mul

Miss Carrington laughed with a little
archness, as much as to say, "who taught

nodded assent, and recognition ns it were ;

only child, and her father is said to be
"I have asked nnd received permission
to eull, and shall probably go there this
evening. Not because Mitis Carrington
is an heiress, you mercenary creaturo,
but because," I continued, unb!uhin!ly,
"she bus a friend and visitor that I have
fallon In love with,"
"Upon my word 1" Lizzie exclaimed,
with a gasp, ns if I had taken her breath
away. "Do you actually mean tuc to bo
lieve what you say ?"
"I actually do."
"But Sydney! Kate Carrington's vis
itor is Agnes Ashley a poor governess,
or muhic teacher, or something of that
"Well, and if she is?"
'Ob I it is all very well, but you have
your fortune to make, and you aro worse
tbun poor with with these children
and such a helpless" Lizzie's lip
quivered, as she stopped,
went round the table and kissed her.
'I am not a poor man, dear, while 1 have
such u good littlo sister. And sho und
'.he children shall only bo better cared
for if I am fortunato enough to win
Agnes Ashley for a wife. Don't be
alraid, Lizzie, but trust mo."
After that, it appears that I did not
find Kahray bo slow. It is true, I did
not go to the sociables aguiu. Thero was
ne need to, for we were very sociable
indeed, at Bonnio Brook House, Mr
Carrington's elegant country seat. I was
made welcome there, and found iu its
fulness the beppiness that beloug to the
"fools" paradise, that only focU will
slander to. But it was well fur we that
I had chosen my boautiful Agnes for an
Kvo to my purudise, instead of Misa Car
rington. I found the field occupied there
with a vengeance, if I had put iu a rash
foot. That fact reconciled Lizzie, whcti
I brought tho news to her at last with
the waning summer that I had won the
"poor governess" for my bride.
As for me, I was loftily indifferent to
her poverty, f r I was soon in high
feather at a flood of artistic successes
which Kahway hud brought me. Miss
t'arriugtou's futber in the Are t place, gave
me an order at a large price for my pio
lure of "Bunnie Brook," the study for
which I had made on his own domain.
Another liberal patron fell into ruptures
over ray "Morning in the Meadow," and
that too, was beoked at a good figure.
Besides 1 had taken portraits both of
Kato and Agnes, which partial friends
declared to be in every way characteristic.
Altogether I was fast "rising into famo
and fortune all thanks to Lizzie's ill
wind. "You have, been my good anccl," I
said to her seme days later, when she had
been to offer her sisterly congratulations
tu my botrothed. "If it wero not for
you Lizzie, I should have been making
some dreadful failure in tho mountains,
instead of being as I am tho happiest
man in New Jersey." t
"Yes, dear, your blessing in disguise, '
said Lizzie, with a face like an April
day, between smiles and tears. "You
thought I did not understand your sacri
fice, but did all tho timo, anil you
needn't interrupt me I've something to
tell you. Your 'poor governess' that you
are so proud "f well, she's an huiress
after all. Kate Currington told me so,
yesterday, and she said that Agnes loved
you first, becauso you were so disinter
ested and faonorablo, lo pay her such
attention when you thought her only a
poor girl, and when others who thought
tho same thing, neglected hor. It's sll

ought not to be," I will hero quote tbo
language of tho learned and distinguished
commentator Scott upon this portion of
divine writ, as it is moro lucid, and to the
point, than anything I can say :
"I comparo tho deadly venom of the
slanderous tongue to a destructive fire ;
for let any one consider bow vast a qusn
tity of fuel a email match, or eves u
spark of fire will suffico to kindle, and
what tremendous conflagrations might
follow, and hence learn tho injury of tho
abuse of the tongue, which is, in fact, a
fire to destroy all before it, and a world
of inquity, comprehending all the wick
edness of mankind. Nay ; it produces
tho most extensive mischiefs all over the
universe, boing indeed sot on fire of hell.'
It instigates men to vent their sbomina
bio thoughts, disseminates through a
community discords, baokbitings, slander,
infidelity, heresies, blasphemy, atheism,
roproaohes, impieties, whence all kinds
of atrocious crimes proceed, ic."
There is no domicile however high, nc
tenement however low, that is too hal
lowed to escapo its polluted touch.
Polluted by the dovilish instincts of malice
to gratify the vindictivencss of a few
arch and cunning enemies, slander may
enter tho hallowed dwelling of any fam
ily. None are eecuro from its poisonus
breath. It attacks even tho ohureh of
Qod, with vague and indefinite charges
against the purity and religion of its
members. No wonder that the church
is attacked, for Christ himself warned us
that it would bo; and if the church of
Christ bo attacked, could wc be surprised
if tho sacred preciuct? of tho family
be invaded ?

It has not occurred to mind that tho
fire of the tonguo is more destructive to
whole communities, to the world nt large,
than tho fires which have of late deso
latcd wholo cities and neighborhoods,
and the fire of the tongue has done moro
to mako uieu miserable here, and hero

In rumor, slanderous reproachful
rumor, no man is responsible. The
prejudiced, 'evengeful instigators, do their
dirty work through irresponsible agonts.
These agents dou't assume .to know any
moro than their employers, but hido be
h'nd tho inuendo, "Have you heard that
such and such an oue did so and so ?"
One thinks it, another hears it, and it
spreads as it goes, snd theie is no one is
the busy round of rumor that will coma
to tho light, that his deed may bo mani

themselves in a condition that tbe gen
eneral laws of privato right and justice
will take hold of them and make them
responsible at the bar of public justice ;
for when ouco the shafts of malicious
slander may have beon directed against
tbo unfortunate individual, whoever he
may bo, it may havo done its work, it
may have iuflicted an injury upon tho

community should vindicato tbo aspersed
