Reference Is made to the extraordinary cure
of Professor Lawrence, Principal ot the ln
stitnUs of Elocution at New York and Phila
delphia. He says as follows :
" About ten years ago, while residing in
New Jersey, I bad a violent attack of chills
and fever. The chill would come on regular
ly about ten o'clock, and continues for near
ly two honrs, followed by a burning fever lor
more than five hours, which no medicine
would relieve ; and I became so weak that 1
could hardly walk across the room, and could
not ascend one flight of stairs in less time
than ten minutes. My life became a burden
to me. I loathed every kind of food, and
every kind of food, aud even water tasted to
me like copperas. I could get no refreshing
sleep cither by night or by day ; the medi
cines prescribed for me by physicians gave
me no relief, and I was fast sinking into the
grave. One day a lady persuaded me to pur
chase a box Bellamy's Pills. I took three at
twelve o'clock noon, and three ut night. Af
ter taking the two doses I felt better, and that
night, for the first time in three months,slcpt
lor fnlly eight hours. The next morning I
felt much better, aud took three more pills.
As ten .o'clock approached I prepared myself
for mv daily chill, but to my intense joy my
unwelcome visitor did not come; and after
eating a hearty dinner at one o'clock, I took
three more pills, and ut night three more.
The next morning, after a delightful night's
rest, i arose at seven o'clock, feeling quite
well ; and although still very weak, yet I was
able to enjoy my food, and whether eating or
drinkintr. everything tasted sweet and pleas
ant to roe. In about seven day' time I was
strong enough to walk four miles, and felt
perfectly cured. Ten years have elapsed
jinse then, and I have never had anothei at
iick of Chills and Fever.

FRIDAY, : : : : AUG 21. 1874
TRIIA 0BLE. ;
Flic long summer day Lad come
in a strange silence.
Strange, at lenst, in Marton . Mill,
housp, where children's voices chat-tere-I
from dawn to lusk,- and
under the gateway of whicH ; laden
wagons so often rumbled, filled, with
weighty flour sacks. ' " .
'ty'i children bad spoken all day
in t$siei-ivhi3pcrs, and the wagoiis
had not come near the milL. ( out of
respect for Geoffrey Stone, the
miller, who lay dead upstair;. !ie
strong, hearty man, who. seemingly;
imgfit have lived lor years; atul.yet,
by one false step on h ladder w bii-h
he mounted many tiuien each' day,
had met his end. ' - v-
There was no mother to' whrtnV
the two startled children rui',"'jijj
their first horror mid grief Mis'.
Stone had died at Etta, the baby's
hirtli; hut for all that the little one
wrre hi'i;ng tneir lacea aitt moan
ing out their laments lor "poor
father" on a woman's breast. r
(lienor Morris was but seventeen,
a fair, slight, goldenhaired girl;
no relation of the dead map, no kin
to the little weepers, yet, witha, a j
true mourner. , . -
Geoffrey Stone had been good to
iler, she would have told you, the
while she smoothed the hair of his
orphan children had taken her, a
little, destitute orphan, arid tended
and cared for her these thirteen
years. He never knew when he
lifted the child off her dying moth
er's bed that she was of good, - ay,
noble birth, and that in after years
titled relatives would write to him,
and offer money for the home he
had granted to the desolate babe.
He scorned the offers, and pressed
the child closer to his side. Never
theless, he did not refuse for her
advantages of education, such as
he, a country miller, could not find
for the little girl; and Gaenor went
to school such as became her sta
tion, but always spent her holidays
at the Mill-house.
jt,!jj rl by-itail-i.-y tne HcuuraH
ble Mrs. Thi3 aud my Lady That, I
felt a twiDge of remorse about'
"poor Algernon's child," their
vouag connection, and would write j
and ask her to their grand London
houses; but Gaenor, who by this j
time knew a little of her own
history, would never go to them, i
They had been cruel to her mother, j
a young governess, whom "poor 1
Algernon had somewhat foolishly
married, lived with happily, though
anxiously, in a cottage at Marton
for two years, and then left forever
in this world, carried off by fever.
Algernon's wife and child were
totally ignored by his family; they
hardly took any notice of the
mother's death, and it was accident
which disclosed the fact at last, that
the child was living on the charity
of a country miller.
Negotiations then began, which
ended in Gaenor 's being educated,
and the small sum of .100 a year
being settled on her, with the grudg
ing permission still to reside with
her humble friends,
And now came a new light into
the girl's life. Charles Cardonell,
the young artist, who for the last
two autumns had taken up his abode
in the village inn at Marton, asked
her to be his wife. Geoffrey Stone
shook his head at first there should
be no repetition of her parents'
story, he said to himself : every
thing should be straight-forward.
So letters were written and in
quiries made, and the Cardonell
family graciously signified consent
in Charles' choice, and then
Geoffrey signed, and gave his word'
"You won't go empty handed,
my girl," he had said to Grcnor;
"for, besides your own bit of money,
you are my eldest daughter, too,
and will share alike with little
Geoffrey and Etta; but I wish they
had left you to me a bit.
Matters had only iust been ar
ranged, when that terrible day came
which chaneed everything, and
turned Marton MilUhouse from the
busiest, gayest home in England,
into a silent, sorrow stricken dwell
ing. Gsenor felt almost asstupin
ed as the children; the death, tho
funeral, the sudden sense of respon
sibility, seemed to weigh her down;
this shock of all was light by com
parison, though told in awe struck
whispers to her by the old lawyer.
Geoffrey Stone, though he knew
it not, had left his children almost
penniless. Some speculation,
though secure, had failed, and the
day after his death the tiding had
" I am clad he never knew," she
The lawyer thought her unfeel
"Ah '. your hundred is safe,"
he said: "of course that could not
be touched; and your approaching
marriage witb Mr. Cardonell will
provide for you; but the children !
And the mill should be kept on
for their sakes; but who to put in
' -'.The lawyer paused, and Gaenor
asked timidly :
MOM Anthew, would he do?"
' " Capitally, as working master,"
said the 'lawyer; but the books,
they must be seen to; and then
there. is the house to be kept, and
the young children looked after,"
-Will yem come again to-morrow,
Mr. Scribe, and talk to me of this?"
asked poor Gaenor, feeling quite
- Her world had been fhakeu to
its foundation these last few days,
and she wanted time to collect her
self: - " '
And then she stole out of the
house, avoiding even little Etta and

.i.ditt-it was ktmoHt-a rdif for her to
see Charles Cardonell approaching,
for she had much to tell him.
And the telling was very hard.
He had ooine with sorrow on his
tongue, for the dead man, but glad
ness in his heart that he could claim
Gaenor for his even sooner now than
he had . hoped. Aud, perhaps, he
was even little relieved that now
Gsenor would be totally severed
froid tli e$e' good but humble people,
among whom misfortune had thrown
For young Cardonell was proud ;
and though he had always loved
Gaenor, he would never have asked
her to be his wife had not the cer
tainty of her noble birth and con
nection been made plain to him ;
and as Mrs. Cardonell, he meant to
separate her from these mill folk,
and restore her to her proper sta
tion. His heart was light as he lifted
his hat to her at the style : but it
was very heavy and angry when
they parted. Try as he would to
shake her resolutions Gaenor had
told him that now she could not
leave the mill could not as yet
marry him ; she must be manager,
book-keeper, care-taker for these
And "Charles Cardonell had first
implored, and become indignant.
It is not ht for you, he said,
'to occupy such a post, to mix with
rough carters, and undertake the
guidance of a mill. I wonder you
wish it Gaenor ; a girl like you, of
education and family.'
(jraenor smiled feebly.
Oh, Charles ! can't you under
stand ?' she said, and then she
sighed ; but more that Charles had
disappointed her than that her lot
was hard. She had thought he
would have seen with her that her
duty lay with these poor children,
and yet have given her some tender
words of comfort over the deferred
marriage, to carry her through the
But this man's heart was shallow
than her own, and because
Gaenor held to her determination to
remain at Marton he left her in an
ger, and went home to tell his fam
ily that long years of association
with middle-class people had so
lowered the tone of Gaenor's mind
that, despite her noble birth, she
perferred remaining at the Mill, as
mistress and manager, to becoming
at once Mrs. Charles Cardonell.
Poor Gaenor ! she wept a little
over her vanished dream of life, and
then went to talk to old Andrew.
There was comfort in that, at all
events, for it was evident there was
work for her to do. Half in jest
and half in earnest, Gaenor had
learned the greater part of the
management of the concern from
poor Geoffrey, and often looked
through his books, glorying in the
discovery of some sight error in his
calculations, or in his praise of her
correct adding up of long trains of
figures. Now she had really to use
this knowledge ! There was actual
pleasure in the occupation ; and
even Andrew declared that Miss
Gaenor managed nearly as well as
the poor master himself..
After the first few days of her
changed life Gaenor had no time
for regrets or painful thoughts.
The house to manage, the children
to teajh, the mill business to look
after, and all expenses to be rigidly
kept down for the children's sake,
was her great business, one wrote
once to Charles Cardonell, asking
his pardon for any disappointment
have caused him, and
freeing him from his engagement.
' It is not fair to ask you to wait
till I shall be free,' she said, 'for I
cannot tell when that may be.
These children must be my first
care, in common gratitude to Geof
frey' Stone. Some day, perhaps,
you will see that I have not acted
ignobly in choosing the Mill instead
of the uranee
The Cardonel's lived at the
Grange, and thither Charles was to
have taken her as his wife.
CFaenor received no answer to
this letter ; but rumors reached her
after a while that Charles Cardonel
was engaged again
Forlialf a day she felt angry
with the world, and then her work
and her two bright faced children
But what would be the end ?
That disturbed her a little now and
then, till she learned to live from
day to day doing the duties lying
before her, and looking no further.
One real sorrow came. Etta,
Geoffrey's baby girl, died, rocked
in Gaenor's arms, and soothed by
her caresses. This shook poor
Gaencr moie than she know. She
felt so dreary that little Ge ffrey
seemed to eciio her feelings, and
moped and mourned too, so that
Geanor thought it Wrt to send him
to school at the nearest town.
The Mill was in full wcik, tind
the books showed the business to be
flourishing again ; so Gaenor had
time for her- sorrow, and began to
look very pale and worn. She
would have liked a word or even it
few written lines from Charles Cur
donell in those days, but none en me.
Something els however, once
again changed the curre.it of her
life, running ju.it now slowly nnd
One gusty winter's night Marton
Mill took fire how, uu one knew
no lives were lo.n ; but the mill wus
burnt to the grcund. It was in
sured to its full value, people said,
aad Gaenor nodded yes to the same
inquiry often repeated.
She was staying at the Rectory,
where the good people had taken
her in, and insisted that she should
remain. But she felt all astray ;
for it had been settled by wiser
heads than hers, she knew, that
Marton Mill should not be rebuilt,
but the money invested for the
benefit of little Geoffrey who would
hear of nothing but going to sea,
and who was already in
for the royal navy.
Old Andrew had died a short
time since, and it seemed to Gaenor
as if no one needed her now.
And then, one day, she opened
her eyes after a heavy doze on the
sofa, for she was ill and feeble from
the late shock and anxiety, to see
Charles Cardonell gazing at her.
The color rushed to her cheeks, for
he wa3 asking her pardon, and cal
ling himself hard names.
"Oh! do not," said she, half
frightened. "Yes, yes, I forgive
you if you wish it indeed I do."
'And may I w ill vou is it the
w.w. p" he ..a;eu; "indeed
I never accepted your freedom,
"But you are going to be married,
are you not : asked poor Gaenor.
"Never! unless to you," said
And then the explanation rumors
and realities quite aroused Gaenor;
but she was not allowed to speak
again till she had received a full
confession of Charles Cardonell's
shortcomings from his own faltering
"I. was an arrogant fool to talk
and think of you as I did. Yes,
you are noble, indeed; but it is not
birth makes you so; it is yourself.
How could I have wished you to
act differently ? The only thing is,
you are too good to be my wife."
un : Vnanes, no, said poor
Gaenor; "you will care for mc
now; for every one is going away
The mill-house is. gone, and Geof
frey will soon be at sea."
And her voice choked.
So, to Charles great relief, the
selfreliant little mill-manager broke

An Old Time Dinner.
A man eightyeight years old
writes to the old folks' department
of the Interior :
" Governor Caleb Strong lived in
Jnorthampton, and had occasion of
ten to visit Boston, driving the one
hundred miles in his own carriage,
Darkness overtook him once at a
strange place, where he tarried over
night among strangers. Of course
governors were as hungry in those
days as now, and he sat down with
the family to the table, in the centre
of which was the usual large bowl
of bread and milk, each having a
spoon and eating from this solitary
dish. Ihe governor told the lady
that he would like to have a bowl
by himself, as he feared he might
get more than his snare if they ate
together; but the lady thought there
was no danger, and declined to
gratify him. My brother-in-law
waited upon the governor at that
time, and told me the story,
Wonder if Governor Washburn
would be content to take tea in like
manner ! I guessthe would, for he
is a sensible man. My mother
lived to be one hundred and four
years and seven months old. She

wiiuv nuuuerous consolation
comes to us in those blessed hours
when the body lies resting. The
spirit roams at will, nor distance,
space, or time can seperate us from
our loved. The treasures snatched
away by death are ours again.
iorms, only dust to-day, are with
us in by-gone years. The same tint
ot hair and shade of eve; the same
rich coloring of lip, and expanse of
brow; the same expression. The
little peculiarities which endeared
them to our hearts, make dreaming
a blessed reality.
How apt are we to exclaim, when
ling, "Oh, could I dream the
same again!" Bereaved mother, you
are comforted when your baby nes
tles in your arms again; the little
lingers thrill you when wandering as
ot old. Iho wee face breaks into
smiles at your caress! You would
hold baby thus forever. Alas! you
must awake awake to find anemp--ly
cradle, empty arms, and a long
lhere is more pleasure in dreams
than in realities. The awakening
embitters both. Brother, sister.
