SMITH'S WIFE.
"Mrs. Smith, I am astonished at
you."
Now, this was not by any moans an
assertion sui gonoris. In (act, accord
ing to his own stntomout, John Smith
was "astonished" at his wifo at least
ouco a day on tinavcrago. Mrs. Smith
was used to it.
Sho was a tall, slight woman, scarce
ly moro than a child in yoars, with
?bining brown hair, largo" dark eyes,
and cheeks that had boen as pink as
Boa-sbolls in tho days of ber happy
maiden life They wero wliito and
wastod now-a circumstance thal might
fiurbaps bo oasily accounted for by tho
ittlo babe on bor lap and tho 2-year
old ol? who was tottering about tho
room in aimless pursuit of kittens, sun
beams, and ol her baby delights.
"Things aro all at?1X09 aud sevens,"
wout on Mr. Smith, tying his cravat
?boforo tho mirror and viciously twist
ling it into a knot. "Coal wasted, but
ttor thrown into tho soap-groaso jar,
.dish-towols takuu for stove-cloths, and
any third-bost pauts sold to a dotti
<or in tinwaro for a funnel and two plo
plattors! I ne^or board anything so
outrageous in my life."
"Hut, my doar," meekly intcrposod
tho mucb-ondnritig wifo, "wo noodod
tho tinware, aud you had not worn tho
garments for a yoar. They woro full
of moths."
"Thero it is again," said Mr. Smith.
"Thc moths would Dover bavo got into
'cm if you had takon proper precau
tions. 1 not or hoard of a moth in my
mother's timo. And now you aro act
ually asking permission to visit your
brother up ibo Hudson."
"1 havo not been away from homo
beforo Hinco wo wero married. John,"
piteously plcadud Mrs. Smith. "I fud
almost worn out, and I think tho
chango would do mi good."
"And what is to become of mo!"
(sonorously domando! tho husband.
Mrs. John Smith thought of tho
day's masonic excursion last week, tho
trout-fishing expedition into tho Cats
kills a fortnight since, tho races at
Joromo Park, and tho drives lo High
Bridgo with Parker, Potts, and Prisbco
in an opon buroucho, all within tho
month. Hut sho said nothing except:
"It don't cost much to go, John.
And I'll only slay away a week. Do
lot mo go! Tho doctor says tho fresh
air miglit help baby along with his
tooth, and little Johnny is drooping
this bot weather."
"Well," said Mr. Smith, as ungra
ciously ns possible, "1 suppose you'll
havo to go. Five dollars at least it
.will cost me, and altogether our ox
<pouses aro ruiuous ibis your. Seo how
.Georgiana Troltor mar.agos for hor
.husband. I don't supposo it costs
ithoiu half to livo that it docs us. I
nuight havo niarriod (Joorgiana Trottor
ouco. I almost wish I bad."
It was on Mrs. Smith's lips to uttor:
"So do I!" lint she lookod at tho llt
tlo ehlldron and was silonL
"Yes," wont on Mr. Smith; "I sup
poso you mun go. Only, for pity s
sako, don't get into tho habit of run
running all tho limo. I needn't sond
up anything from tho bulcbor's, I sup
posoP I shall dino down-town, and
there'll bo enough loft ou tho cold
knuckle of yesterday's hom for you!"
Mrs. 8mlth abstained from remind
ing hor hoskin.! that ho had himsolf
(breakfasted on tho ronmins of tho ham.
.She only sighed and was silent.
"It's his way," sho thought. "He
means well enough. And I suppose
all men aro so. Only I wish ho had
kissed mo giod-byl"
Woman nature all ovorl She could
do without her dinner contontod, oat
ing a crust ol broad in stead, but her
heart yoarnod hungrily for the omitted
caross, tho ignored word ot tendernos*.
Poor Mrs. John Smith I How the
Btrong-mlndod of hor sox would have
pltiedand despised her!
No light! no Uro! It was droary
enough on that chill August ovening,
as Mr. Smith scrowod tho night-key
Into the latch and groped bis wey in
the hall. Ho sat down In tho bay-win
dow and stared about tho vacant room.
There wa* bl* wifo's work-basket on

Ho moved his chair uneasily and
omitted a thread of blue, spicy smoko
from his lips vory much as if ho woro
not enjoying it particularly.
"I supposo they aro at Hil Worry farm

Flinging his cigar into tho utiusod
grate, John Smith shulllud along to
tho door in his slippers.
"Oh - a tulogrnm! Now, I wonder
who should telegraph to me!"
"Well," said tito shivering and rain
drenched niossongor, "p'raps you'd

And oft* ho wont, while Mr. Smith

CowoiucY, Aug. -,-To JOHN SMITH:
Railroad accident. Your wife is killed amt
your child dangerously hurt. (Jomo liv tue
next train. J A?na?.Mia?anrn, .Vf. 1).
Again and nguiu Mr. Smith's be
wildered eyes roved over (ho contents
of this appalling missive before hu
could fully comprehend its duadly
moaning.
"Dead! Killed!" ho muttered to him
self. "My Junuy killod by a railroad
accident!
And then, catching a railway guide
from tho book-shelf, hu whirled over
its loaves with trembling hand. Tho
next train did not leave tho terminus
under an hour ami a half! To bim tho
time seemed almost, liku eternity. How
could ho enduro this awful agony of
soul for an hour and n half?
"Perhaps they aro incorrect," ho
muttered to himself, wiping tho bonds
of cold sweat from Ilia brow. "People
can't always j ml go exactly in snob a
moment of dismay. Perhaps ?ho is
only badly hurt, and I can nuns her
through it after ail. My Jenny! my
loving, patient, swool-oyod wifo!" A
strong sob roso up in lits throat as if it
would strangle him. "No. no, ?ho is
killod!" ho gasped, as his oyo foll once
moro on tho tologram. "Head! and 1
nover can speak to her again or toi!
her what a cruel-, exacting bruto 1 have
boon! (lod knows I didn't moan ii,
and now it's too lato lo make any
amends. Why didn't tho children gc
too? How can I bring thom up with
out Jenny?"
His head drooped low on his quiver
ing hands; a low, spasmodic groar
burst from his palo lips. An hom
and a half boforn ho eouhl go to Jenny
half au hour then, beforo ho conk
look upon hor duad faco; for Cowdroj
was an Insignificant way station sunn
oight or ten milos up tho road.
"if I could only live my lifo ovoi
again!" ho cried aloud to tho ban
walls, while tight in hi? arms ho clasp
od Jenny's little work-basket, with it
strips of unfinished hemming-all tha
wa? luft to him of tho fair, departot
Erosoncc. "if I could only spuak t<
er just once, and ask hor forgivonos
for a thousand things. Rut, no-it I
too lato-too late. And-"
Ho '.topped abruptly. Tho sound o
a hack driving hastily up to tho door
tho reiterated jerk of tho bull-wir
roused him onco moro into roluctuu
action.
"John! doar John!'"
"Jonny, my wifo!"
He stood, palo and stupefied, starin
at her as if she wcro actually n ghos
returned from tho regions of ?paco an
unreality.
..Th ero has boon a terri bio railroa
accident!" said Jonny, her voico faltei
lug, as sho laid tho baby on a sofa an
took l.ttlo Johnny lovingly on hor la
-"a few miles beyond Cowdroy. Thrc
or four pcoplo wore killod, but, than
God, wo . . .?pod unhurt. Of courso,
took tho first train back that I could
for I know you would hoar of it and h
unoasy. Aud only to think, doai
there was a poor mother killed, wit
hor little babe in hor arm?, and he
namo was tho samo as raino-'Mr.
John Smith.' "
Ho pointod ono trombllng fingor t
tho telegram, which lay open ou th
table. Mrs. Smith road it with dilato
oyes and pale face.
"Ohl my lovo, what a fright yo
have had! sho exclnimod. "Aud onl
to reduct, it might have bouu me!"
"Rut it is not. Obi thank heavoi
my own darling wifo, it is nott" gas]
ed tho husband, holding his rocoverc
ti ea on o eloso to hi? heart. "And
have yet timo to livo my lifo ov<
again!"
And from that hour John Smith wt
a changed man. To Jenny it senna
almost like millennium, but Mrs. Geo
giana Trotter turned up hor nose ai
auld:
"John Smith must bo in his dotng

A CURIOUS OAI.CUL.VTION,
Th? Kn?I of thr Wurdi I-.RH rod Out, niul
thn Period Pixed nt 1HIM).
Tho following singular ami very cu
rilla .calculation, by which tho ap
proaching end of tho world h deter
mined, ba? never beforo Leon m ulo
known to tho public, writes a Water
loo, Kan., correspondent of tho Lotlis
??Ho Courtcr-Juttrnal, aud may bc of
very groat interest to thone wlio have
been studying thc propli-ci?., or
watching tin? progress of lin ina II events.
Bellove tin; results or not. as wo may,
nevertheless boro mo tho ligures which
any reader can verify for himself. If
thoso results aro hore correctly fore
told, thou tho startling fact ?tares us
in tho face that tho world is within
ti ft oe n years of its close. Ill tho fall of
1899 tho linal winding up is to luke
placo. Hero aro tho calculations. Lot
tho reader carefully examino them:
To bogin. Thero aro several impor
tant prophetic periods made known in
tho scriptures, and various dates, as
well as significant numbers, snell as
tho groat period of 2,300 years mon
t io ii cd by Daniel, tho period of 1/290
?ears, and .tho period of 1.333 \ cars,
tosidos these thero are in tho book of
Revelation other periods amt signifi
cant numbers, such as the 1.200 years;
tho poriod of tho woman's sojourn in
tho wildcrnoss, 1,000 years tho period
of Satan's boing bound, and 660 tho
numbor of boasts. Enoch's age (30?
years), who prophesied of tho second
advent among tbs antediluvian sinners,
is also beyond all question a symbolic
number.
Perhaps, like tho 3(50 days which
complote ono r?volution of tho earth
around tho sun, making ono year, so
Ins 305 yoars may bo symbolic of tho
groat proph?tie periods known as
"days, : one grand revolution of which
is to c?mplele ono of lime's groat\oars
and finish earth's career. ..Seven" is
also one of tho significant niliubors of
SOripturo, aud a "week of seven," or 7
times 7, still more so. Tho student of
scripturo will readily recall fr?quent
instances of this slgllllicunt liguro 7,
and especially the more important ono
of 7 timos 7, or 49- the number of linal
completion, tho finishing of all mys
teries, the winding up ol earth's allans.
Very well. Now, luke these ligures,
add them logelhor, and soe what you
got:
2.300 years. Dan's great period for
the eicHising of tao sanctuary.
' 1.290 years, measuring Ibo continu
ance ot tho "abomination of desola
tion.' '
1,335 years, tho period of "blessed
ness" to the saints.
1,200 yoars, tho duration of tho wo
man's sojourn in tho wilderness.
1,000 years, tho binding of Satan.
OOO years, the number of thc "boast"
who is to go into perdition.
30? yoars, the symbolic age of Enoch,
tho great prophet of tho advent.
49 yoars, tho number of linal comple
tion.
Total 8.206 years.
. Mow reuiombor thal beforo all tho
catastrophes denounced on mankind as
tho divine judgments against sin thero
wore usually periods of "waiting" be
fore the jiidgiuonl fell, so us to afford
opportunity of repentance and escapo,
and these periods multiples of 40, us,
for example, beforo tho Hood, 120
years; before tho conquest of Canaan,
40 years; and before Hie full of Nine
veh, 40 days, denounced by the pro
phot Jonah. Now udd together 120
your? of Noah's warning before tho
Hood came, 40 yoars of Israel's warn
ing before judgniout fell on tho guilty
Canaanites, 3] years that thu witnesses
laid unburied preparatory to resurrec
tion, and throe years during willoh tho
owner of tho vineyard caine seeking
fruit und Unding none, at tho expira
tion of winch poliod tho tig tree was to
bo cut down, amt you have 1GGJ as tho
! sum.
Now, to apply t' eso mystic numbers
and loarn their (Uilleance, imagino
your life divided imo the four periods
of childhood, youth, mai.hood, and old
ago, so as to gol it in its completeness,
'luke your ago in yours, leaving .oil
I months and days, add it to itself tbroo
tiraos (ono for ouch of thoso four
periods), add to it tho mystic number
i 8,265 (tho sum of tho groat prophetic
periods) in order to ascertain tho full
sum of timo's revolutions, and divide
tho amount of four (tho numbor of
universality, became thoso calculations
apply equally to every human being),
subtract from tho quotient tho other
mystic numbor 166) (periods of warn
ing given to man beforo tho execution
of final doom), and from tho remainder
deduct tho numbor of yoars you have
lived in this sublunary world, and you
got tho number 1.899}.
Now it matters not what age you
take, that of tho little child or the old
man, tho result is tho ?niuo, Ibo omin
ous 1,899} always romains us tho ono
fatal poriod w hen every human lifo is
to close. Hut tho ono yoar in which
overy human oarcor is to torminato
and ovory life closo must bo tho final
year, tho winding up, tho conclusion
of all sublunary things, tho year of
doom.
A singular confirmation of this cal
culation is to bo found in tho fact that,
according to an old Jowiah tradition,
the world was created in tho fall of the
year, of which tho old feast of trum
pets, occurring in October, was sup-1
posed to bo tho memorial. And it
would bo natural to supposo that it
would be very appropriate for it to
oloso Us career on tho completion of
ono of its annual revolutions; in otho
words, in tho fall of tho yoar. And so
this remarkable calculation plainly in
dicates. The three-fourths singularly
points out that fact. Hence, if thoso
conclusions ara not erroneous, wo havo
the startling prophecy beforo us thal
when earth reaches one of hor great
milestones on tho highway of time In
Ootober, 1899. a mighty hand will bo
laid upon her and she will stop. Let
the world look out for 1899.
