IA F?IEND_IN NEEl
I They all lived together in the
Palladium Flats?a cheerful build?
ing, neither very extensive nor very
towering, and with nothing im?
posing about it excepting perhaps
The DoliteLs?bachelor brother,
maiden sister, and widowed moth?
er?occupied the topmost suite of
apartments, and two contiguous
rooms overlooking; an empty and
[airy courtyard were tenanted re?
spectively by a pretty saleslady
and a pale young music teacher.?
They had been neighbors for a.rear
or more and they had all become
quite neighborly together.
"Only Maud Kayne is so much
more sociable and obliging than
the music teacher is," the Dolitels
used to say among themselves.
"Kachel Leonard may be just as
generous and sympathetic, even) if
she. is so undemonstrative," Mr.
Kit D?hrel was inclined to main?
"Oh, she. ain't sympathetic a bit."
dissented the maiden sister?a di?
minutive and colorless personage
with somewhat characterless fea
tares. ''While mamma was "so
alarmingly ill she never came near
us?though to be sure she did send
to inquire if she could be of ser?
vice. Hut Maud the dear soul!
was in and out constantly, and al
ways advising something to help
'?Her advice was no sacrifice to
her," bachelor Kit said. "And if I
werealariniugly ill, I fancy I should
not care to have anybody in and out
constantly, chattering and gossip?
"And her chatter did sometimes
rather torture my poor weak head,7?
which was really helpful. . But she
intended everything in the world
for a friend."
"She quite insisted I should take
that lovely zouave jacket?it was a
present to her, too; and to be sure
1 do not need it a bit," said the
somewhat rapid Miss Dolitel.
'?If cost her nothing." the broth?
er commented with an amused
twinkle in his line, frank giayeyes.
"And she cannot wear it herself?
sky blue embroidered in silver
does not eminently become a sallow
"She is always insisting we shall
take some trifle from her," said the
mother, ignoring the sarcastic com?
ment; "and I had much rather she
would not. But she can afford to
make little gifts to her friends,
I suppose; she certainly earns a
good deal more moi.ey than Ba
"Teaching music is not always a
lucrative vocation," Kit observed
"Oh, but Rachel does not care
to make gifts to any one?she is
such a miserly little creature," said
the sister. "She actually begrudges
?the keeping of her parrot, Maud
"Maud must have been joking,"
Mis. Dolitel interposed. "She
would not be likely to begrudge the
keeping of a pet like that?it is a
wonderfully intelligent and rarely
taught- bird, and valuable beside.?
One other pupils would give her a
hundred dollars for it any day."
"And she would not part with it
lor a bundled times the sum. She)
has nothing to love, she says. She
is an uncommonly silly girl, ] |
think," the not particularly bril?
liant Miss Dolitel said, with a little
'shrug ofher diminutive shoulders.
"Aud she has need enough of
money, too?I am persuaded ot that.
She has worn nothing but shabby
old cashmeres ever since she has
been in the house," Mrs. Dolitel
said, iu a suddenly altered aud fail?
ing tone, and she abruptly dropped
the needlework which some mo
incuts she had held in an uncertain
sort of way.
"You have been exerting your?
self too much, mother," said Kit,
anxiously regarding the changing
countenance of his ihigile parent.
"You are ill again, mamma," the
daughter cried, as she hurried to
the sola wheie the invalid reclined,
now iaiut and gasping, as spasm of
pain wrenched ber weakened fiaine
Aud ill again she was. indeed?
so ill that for days and (lays she
lay in a darkened room, to which
the exceedingly sociable aud oblig?
ing Maud Kayne was refused ad?
"Do let me go to her! I could be
such a help to her, auu a little chat
would soothe her so much. And!
am always so happy when I cau do
something for a friend," supplica?
ted the young lady, her ringed
hands clasped beseechingly, her
shoe-black eyes very soleinu and
"You cannot go to her yet; moth?
er must have absolute quiet," Kit
answered with ungaliant obstinacy.
"Kit don't Intend to be uncivil,"
said his'sister, wlio was whimper?
ing plaintively in one corner of the
big hair cloth sola, "Ho is very
ibnd of you, just as we all are; he
appreciates .your uusellish sympa?
thy lor us.and your generous de?
sire to assist us. Aud to be sure
we never needed a friend as we do
"you have no immediate cause
to feel disheartened, Sis," the
brother remarked, with a disap?
proving glance, towards the small
figure crouched on the sofa.
. "Ah, then there is really no dan?
ger; dear Mrs. Dolitel will recover,"
interpolated Maud, mistaking the
import of what had just been ut?
"Uh, mamma will soon be well
again. But misfortunes never come
singly and we are in such trouble,"
was wailed from the sofa.
The young lady looked very in?
terested and commiserative, and
Kit frowned and turned away as if
the topic were no less unprofitable
"All the whole year Kit had been
so unfortunate about getting work,"
?continued the weeping Miss Doli?
tel, unheeding the frown?"aud
where there is so much illness and
no employment there are always
debts and difficulties about rent
and everything. To lie sure the

What is Money Worth!
Looking at life from one direct

exchange. We are continually
-buying aud selling, parting with
some tilings to gain others, yield?
ing up what we value less lor what
we value more This is by uo
means confined to the batterings
of commerce in material things.?
The exchanges made of things that
are handled tdrm only one division
of the gieat commerce of life. Men
are daily selling labor and tiiiie,
comfort aud health, wie and knowl?
edge, sometimes even truth and
honor, and receiving in return
something that we suppose tu be

money has com i to be the most
convenient medium. In all the
complex systems of commercial
life it plays a most important part,
aud forwards transactions that
would otherwise be impossible. In
utilizing the labor, the skill and the
talents of mankind, and bringing
producer and consumer into rela
tioiis ol mutual benefit, it is invalu?
able; and thus, as a means to nn
merous desirable ends, it is justly
prized and sought lor. In proper
tion, however, to the great value of
j money as an instrument, is its ut?
ter uselessuess as an end in itself.
If it should lie iu heaps oil a desert
island, the famished traveler, cast
upon the shore, would pass it by
unheeded ill his eager search for a

only worth to any one is what it
will enable him to procure.
This truth is so frequently lost

to be regarded not only as an end,
but as the one end must desirable

Seeing that it can do so much peo?
ple imagine that it can do all, and
so are willing to barter everything

money as a step by which to reach
something really valuable, they re
gard other thing i as steps by which
to reach money, and estimate them
accordingly. VVhac ought to be
served by It they degrade into
servants to it.
The common expression, 'time is
money,' savors of this fallacy. It
is used to heighten a sense of the
value of time, as its chief and best
! use was to earn money, and herein
lay the only reason for not wasting
it. Those who thus reason, buy
gold often at a fearful price. They
give for it their whole time, which
is their life, and sacrifice the many,
other uses to which it may be'put.
But no re exchange is possible.?

An Incident of the War.
Of General Alpheus Baker, now
of this ciry, formerly a citizen of
Eufaulu, Ala., a lawyer by profes?
sion and an orator of great sweet?
ness of diction and power, the fol?
lowing incident is related:
He owned a slave called Paris, be?
fore the war and at the time the
first gnu was fired at Sampler. The
slave was a huge negro, very dark
in complexion, six feet two iu stat?
ure, and correspondingly large in
frame, making a perfect speci neu
of manhood physically. The Gen?
era' quit his family to follow the
fortunes of the Confederacy. He
said to his servant Paris; "J am go?
ing to the war, Paris; will you go
with me?" Paris, who loved aud ad
mired his master, at once assented,
and followed the wanderings of his
master as a devoted squire, until
the General, with those associated
with him, was captured by Gener?
al John Pope at Island .No. 10 iu
che Mississippi river. In the pres?
ence of the Federal soldiers, when
the Gei:eial was about to be hurri?
ed off as a prisoner to Johnson,s
Island, his servant Paris came to
Iu the interview which took place
iu which much that was affection?
ate occurred betweeu the master
and his old servaut, the General
said to him: ??Well, Paris, what are
yon going to do?" Paris replied:
"V\ elljinassa, with the help of God,
I'm going back to the inistus and
chil'rcn " The two old friends, who
had been boys together on the old
plantation iu the "Land of Rest,"
and were about the .vauie age, shook
hands in silence and in tears. Paris
turned to go, but had gone but a
few ftet away from his master
when he turned towards him again
his soul swelled up from its lowest
depths and his countenance all
aglow with the fervor of pure affec?
tion, and rushed iuto his master's
arms, weeping like an infant, and
The two men clasped each other
and their sighs and sobs brought
tears to the eyes of the victors who
surrounded them; aud the expies
siou was heard, "Great God, see
what affection betweeu master aud
Iiis old servant!"
And that affection betweeu mas

today in all the South, and will be

The Manners of Boys.
Boys at a certain age, are apt to
be awkward. Outdoor exercise and
sports do much to make them strong
and straight; yet it is very common
among those who are growing fast
(especially if they read or study a
good deal), to find the head thrust
forward, the shoulders round and
stooping, and a slouching, ungrace?
ful carriage. Until these things are
corrected, no boy can be thorough?
ly strong and vigorous. Biting the
nails is one. of the most auoying
habits, and yet one which almost
any boy will fall into unless his/
mother "hips it iu the bud." IS/
only is it almost unendurable/

it be carried to excess, they will be?
come almost deformed, lu these days
of professional.manicures, mothers
ought, at least to see that there are
no ragged nails and raw liugers
among their children. A habit of
suutliiig, or scraping the throat, of
tapping the floor with the foot, or
the table with the knuckles, comes
on gradually, but once fixed is ex?
ceedingly dificult to overcome.
"Eternal vigilance" should be a
mother's watchword, lor the true
secret of curing bad habits is in
uever allowing them to be formed.
The "ounce of prevention" is worth
more than the "pound of cure." ?
would not take away anythiug of
boyishness or naturalness. A real
boy is worth half a dozen fops or
dudes. But I do not see why boys
should not be as graceful and well
mauuered as their sisters; why they
cauuot sit down at a table without
hitting it and jarring the dishes as
well as the tempers of the whole
family; why they cannot cross a
room without stumbling against
the furniture; or close a door with?
out slamming it. or quietly while
reading or listening. It should be
perfeeily natural for a boy to lift
his hat to his mother or sister when
he chances to meet them on the
street; to rise from a comfortable
chair wheu older peisons enter the
room; to entertain a visitor when
the rest of the household is engage
ed. Do you say it is too much for
a boy to think of all these things?
if the mother has traiuud him from
babyhood constantly and carefully
he will do them without thinking.

What "Blue Blood"'j Really Means.
The term blue blood, from the
Spanish phrase saugre azul, is
much used without a very clear
idea of its signification. Its real
meaniug is?"not that the blood it?
self is blue (excepting that all ven?
ous blood has a bluish tinge)?but ?
that the persons or class to whom
the terra is applied have skins so
white and transparent that the
veins show blue through them, and
this is taken as a certain indication
that the class or person thus desig?
nated is without an admixture of
races. Any one who has traveled
in Spanish-American countries, or

The descend.mts of the Gothic
conquerors of Spain retain to this
day the characteristics of their an
cestors ? the white, transparent
skin, blue, eyes, and auburn tawny
hair, aud their veins show blue
through their cuticle; but in case
of an admixture of African or
Moorish blood, the blue blood
(vein) gradually disappears, until
in a case of great preponderance of
the latter races the veins show
merely as ridges. Tourists in Mex?
ico will notice this peculiarity in ail
of the Mexican cities, as in the
haciendas throughout that country,
