THE HElttESS' CHOICE.
BY SltTlUS COEB, JR.
In pearly-winter of 1852 Nath
an Ataetting iay dying in a New
Jersey city not very far from the
Hudson. .lie had . amassed great
wealth in mercantile business, but
how, in the jrrirae ofiife, he waa (o
leave it all behind him. His wife
had been dead - several years; And
his only near and -dear relative was
his daughter Ada the only child
that Jiad ever been born to bless
him--hlcl a'blessing indeed had she
-bjefen the light of his home: the
pride and joy of his heart; and the
one sveet, pure flower that had
sh?d a celestial fragrance over the
later years of his lite.
' tThe daughter stood by her fath
er's bedside, both her hands clasped
' 1 Ada,' said the dying man, when
1 1 am gone you will be left the mis
! tress of great wealth, and I need
tnot tell you of the many trials and
temptations you may be called upon
to endure, nor of the manifold
snares which designing people may
set in your path. I have tried to
educate you well and truly, and 1
henow you have been a diligent stu

lOW me to speak one word more of
parental counsel. In three years
you will then become sole guardian
of your property. 1 hope you may
live long to enjoy it ; but that en
joyment must depend much upon
the character of the partner to
whom you shall give your hand and
your heart. Oh, my child, be wise
be circumspect. Marry no poor
man simply because he is handsome
and good-hearted; and choose no
scion of wealth simply because of
his wealth. Let your choice be
governed by sterling merit ; and to
that end do you cultivate self-respect
without pride, and a virtue of
life and judgment without ostenta
tion. God help you, sweet one, in
that important ordeal. Remember
the last prayer of my soul shall
be to that end."
No maiden could be more gener
ally courted by the marriageable
young gentlemen of her acquaint'
ance than was the beautiful orphan
heiress, Ada Atherling. At the
age of eighteen, by provision of her
father's will, she came into full pos
session of very nearly a million of
dollars. A girl with more of haugh
ty pride might have kept all poor
admirers at a distance ; out so mild
and so kind was she so respectful
to all whom she considered worthy
to be held as friends so deferential
to modest merit and bo utterly ob
livions of all qualities of rank and
fashion when linked with selfish
ness and snobbishness, that young
men of humble station ere long
learned that she could be kind and
respectful to them, and that she
could smile upon them as sweetly
as upon those more lavored ot lor
tune. At length, when Ada had reachs
erd the age of twenty, there were
two men who had come nearer to
her heart than had any others.
One was Philip Nettleton, and the
other was Amos Robbins. Both
were Book-keepers in heavy New
York houses, and both had pros
pect of soon being admitted into
actual business partnership. Both
were honorable, sober, kind-heart
ed men. and both were called
handsome. Philio Nettleton was
the more intellectual of the two ;
the more studious, meditative, and
reserved. Amos Robbins was the
more polished, sparkling, witty and
Both of those young men loved
Ada Atherling, and though she
had never, by word or sign, given
either of them to understand that
she could return that love, yet she
had shown, in many ways, that
their position in life did not in the
least limit her respect and esteem ;
but, on the contrary, she treated
them with far more consideration
than she did those who came float
ing about her on the golden sea of

it did not happen on the first day,
nor yet on the second, but on the
third day he had to deliver a parcel
at the house where Ada Atherling
ived; and as he passed through the
gateway, with a heavily laden
basket up on either arm, he saw the
maiden whom he had learned to
ove looking unon him from one of
the parlor windows. He did not
bow his head in shame, but he gave
a respectful nod of recognition, and
Dassed on. When be was once

Two ladies stood verv near to the
partition thereof, the upper part of
which was of glazal sash, and open;
and this was what thep heard spoken
bv two men m the little box ot an
office. The first spoke in continua
tion of remarks already made :
' Mr. Dwinal himselt told me
how it was. You know Nettleton

upon him; and when he came, out
from beneath the wreck ot lirown ac

As 1 did, broke m the silvery

any work he could find, so that it
was'honest; and when Dwinal offered

dollars a week, he took it.'

my mind, relinquished all hope of

Had you thought, Mr. Nettle

is formed with one
large'wire, spirally twisted ovor by
tWelve'smalier wires. This stranded-cond'a'fttftr
is covered with :i thin
l.cpating.ot patent compound. Four
coats Gt gutta percha are then put
on, each coat cooliug before the

Mr. Cyrus Field is pushing for
ward twrth his usual energy his pro-!
ect ol a I'acmc cable. This cable
will take one of two routes; cither
it will be laid northwest from San
irancisco to Atcha, one of the
Aleutian isles, thence southwest to
Yokohama, each section being
2,200 nautical miles long; or it will
be southwest from banirancisco to
Honolulu. 2,200 miles, and thence
northwest to the Japanese coast,
about 3,500 miles more. In case
the southern route is chosen, a
station will be made on Ocean is-
and, some-what over 1,000 miles
"rom Honolulu, because 3,500 miles
is too long a strecch for a cable.
The southern route is Mr. Field's
preference, on account of the storm
and cold of the northern, and be
cause at Honolulu the cable would
not only pick up Sandwhich island
business, but might branch off via
M,he Navigators' und FIJI islands to
New Caledonia and Australia, so as
to give direct communication be
tween Sydney and London. Yet
something depends on the result of
the soundings, which are now being
taken by the ship luscarora; and it
will cost $2,500,000 more to lay a
cable over the southern route than
over the northern, allowing the
difficulties aside from distance to
be the same.
It is Mr. Field's opinion that,
when the special overland wire be
tween San Francisco and New York
is built, the new route will put Asia
within halt an hour s talking dis
tance with England. Neic York
Buying a Horse.
There was a feller from down
East, to a town called Vermont,
that come into our parts to sell his
horses. He squinted with one eye,
and the other kept looking up for
rain, so my wife keered about him,
and she wa3 in a great flustification
to go a shopping at the place where
he was, and buy her a saddle hoss.
So she went and got one. She paid
forty dollars for it, and brought it
home, for I'm sure it couldn't bring
her. My wife was never noj"udge
of the article, though she could tell
a bear from a panther by the feci of
his bite, if it was so dark that she
couldn't hear herself talk. The
hoss was lame in his fore legs and
hind legs too, and he had a crook
in his tail. He was blind in one
eye and deaf of both ears. lie
couldn't stand up, ho was so infirm,
and he couldn't lay down because
his bowels were out of order. So
the hoss-jockey was to come the
next ' morning arter his money. I
put a halter around the neck of the
cretur and tied his head up to the
limb of a tree. I put an old saddle
on -his" back, and put a bridle on
him. l fixed the oridle so that the
least strain would break it off the
bits by taking out the stitches.
Then I went into the woods and
got a hornet's nest, and stopped it
up, so that the creturs couldn t git
out.'. In the morning the fellur
came after his pay. I began to
praise the hoss, and telled him the
animal was so spirited, 1 didn tlise
for mV wife to ride him. He said
he was as gentle as a lamb. 1 axe
him to get on and let me see how
he would go. The jockey leeped
up and got in the saddle. As soon
as he had lighted on the breast,
beat in the hornets nest and flung
it agin the hoss' flanks The
animal showed some spirits then
for the little varmints cum out, and
spured on the cretur most beautiful
He set off on a full run, and the
bridle broke right off in the jockey'
hand3. The hoss then dug through
the forest without Stopping to count
the leaves, and the feller clung to
the &0&8 inane like a chesnut burr
to a bears-skin. The last I heard
of hira he was seen up by the fork
of Duel; ri,v:, geing through tln
country like a runaway steamboat.
He never cum back arter his money.
What is Respectable Society ?
We heard a man, otherwise in-
teligent enough, lately sneer at
another, "because," said he, "one
never meets him in respectable
society." Tk speaker did, net
mean, however, t':vt. ihc .rson' he
affected to look down upon was i.n-
moral, but merely tii.it bis circle of
intimutfs was not cinpostd of tin
fashionable or rich. This notion
of what constitutes respectable
society is quite a favorite one with
that class of individuals whom
..i. v : :a .1 11 j
Lmpty pretense is always

standard by winch it strives to mea
sure the respectability at large. In
a community of mere money -getting,
wealth is the test of respectability,
-dmong the proud, narrow-minded.
respectability depends on
descended from ancestors who have
married their cousins for so many
centuries that neither muscles nor
brains are left any longer to degen
erate descendants. Every conceited
fool thinks himself, in like way, the
only man really weighty, the only
person who is really respectable.
JJut true respectability depends ou
no such adventitioui circumstances.
To be respectable is to be worthy
of respect; and he most deserves
respect who has the most virtue.
The humblest man, who bravely
does his duty, is more worthy of
respect, is more truly respectable
than the covetous millionaire money
bags, or the arrogant monarch on
his throne. Tho fine lady who
backbites her neighbor is less worthy
than an honest washer-woman. The
profligate noble, though he may
wear a dozen orders in his button
hole, is often really not as respect
acle as the shoe-black who cleans
his boots. That which is called the
"world" exalts the one and despises
the other; but it does not make
them respectable according to the
real meaning of tho word. Their
respectability is but a shallow sham,
as they themselves frequently feel;
and those who worship them bow
down to a Fetich a thing of feaths
crs and tinsel. The selfish, idle
drone who wastes life in his own
gratification, and dissipates the for
tuno of hlfl progeny, is not and can
not be respectable; but the hard
working and selfsdenying father,
who wears out his life to bring up
his children, is, even though he be
a day laborer, entitled to distinctive
respect. Nothing can make Dives
fit to lie on Abraham's bosom, while
Lazarus is welcomed there, even
with the sores the dogs have licked.
The Wear of the Brain.
The notion that those who work
only with their brains need less
food than those who labor with their
hand-, has been the cause of untold
mischief. Students and literary
men have often been the victims of
slow starvation from their ignor
ance oi the lact that mental labor
causes greater waste
of tissue than
According to careful
estimates, three hours of hard study
wear out the body more than a
whole day of hard work at tho an-,
vil or on the farm. " Without
phosphorus, no thought," is a Ger
man saying; and the consumption
of that essential ingredient of the
brain increases in proportion to the
amount of labor which the organ is
equired to perform. Ihis wear
and tear of the brain are easily
measured by careful examination of
the salts in the liquid excretions.
lhe importance of the brain as a
working organ is shown by tho
amount of blood it receives, which
is proportionately greater than that
of any other part of the body. One-
fifth of the blood goes to the brain,
through its average weight is only
one-fortieth of the weight of the
body. This fact alone would be
ufhcient to prove that brain-workers
need more food and better food than
mechanics and farm laborers.
Relations of Temperature to Life.
Life in general is possible only
between certain limits of tempera
ture ; and life of the higher kinds is
possible only within a comparative-
y narrow range of temperature,
maintained artificially if not natur
ally. Hence it results that social
life, presupposing as it does not
only human life, but that life vege-
1 and animal on which human life
depends, is restricted by certain ex
tremes of cold and heat.
Cold, though great, does not ri
gorously exclude warm-blooded crea
tures, if the locality supplies in ad
equate quantity the means of gene
rating heat. The arctic Fauna con
tains various marine and terrestial
mammals, large and small : but the
existence cf these depends, directly
or indirectly, on the existence of
the inferior marine creatures, ver
tebrate and invertebrate, which
would cease to live there did not
the warm currents from the tropics
check the formation of ice. Hence
such human life as we find in arctic
regions, dependent as it is mainly
on that of these mammals, is atao
remotely of heat. Popular Science
