HOW HE WON THE OLD MAID.
BY KIirJN K. IJEXFOKI).
Mr. Job Dueutiberry stopped on
lio.-ud thft train bound lor Boston
one inorniii'T, fi'cliiigu kind ot (liiecr
sensation at the pit of his stomach.
H( eniiclndeil. ! llto limn lu fi,-t
became awaro ol" it, that it was oc
casioned by cat in ; too licarty a
bicukfnst in too short a time. Liter,
lie came to a dillorent conclusion
He was jr'" "down to Uostoif
to visit liis brotliet- Joseph, and stav
"til! after the Fourth."
The car was pretty full, but he
succeeded in finding an unoccupied
seal at last, and sat down to look
about him. IJc had hardly betin
to look, however, when another
traveler entered the car in search of
a scat. She was an old maid, Job
knew, the moment he saw her.
There are certain feigns which can
never be mistaken in t lie class of
single damsels to which she belong
ed, that class being the primly
perpendicular one, nearly all angles
aim very little curves, and Job had
sc'Jii too many of them to be mis
taken, lie couldn't say that lie
liked old maids, and yet, being an
old bachelor, he felt a sympathy tor
their single condition which made
his heart tender toward thein.
She looked sharply about her iu
eearrh ol a seal. As it happened,
Job's was the only one in which
there were not two.
"I'd like the privilege scttin' with
you,'' said she, fixing her eagle eye
on Job's, in a way that seemed to
dare him to refuse.
'Shall be delighted to have you."
answereii Jon with alnuiity, jump

Lovely," answered his compan
ion, iu a voice that seemed to come
from down cellar, as she proceeded
to arrange her baskets and bundles
about her teet. "Yes, sir, a lovely
day. 1 told Almiry she'.s my broth
er John's wife I told her it was
goi' to be jest n splendid dav for
A light broke in upon Job's mind.
John and Almiry, he felt sure, were
Mr. and Mrs. Stebbins. He had
heard that Mr. Stehbins had a sis
ter from Vermont viMting him.
"I conclude you're Mr. Stebbius'
sister, ma'am," said Job, anxious to
find out if he were right. Me had
been advised ip go over and see the
lady, but somehow he never could
make up his mind to.
"I be," she answered : "my name's
C...I.I Iir. .. " - - -
ousan oieuoins. nat S vourii, if 1
may oe so inquisitive.'"7
"Duseuberry Job Dusenbcrry,"
he replied, with a bow. He was
naturally very genteel in his in
stincts. 'Is that so?'' exclaimed Miss
Stebbius, casting a side-long glance
at Job. and trying her best to blu-.li.
"Aliriiry'fi been heclonV mc about
you ever since Iv'c been there."
"1 want to know I" cried Job. He
couldn't think of anything else to
say, and it seemed as if she must
expect him to say something.
" Yes, an' John, too," went ou
Miss Stcbbins. "But, you know,
folks will joke, an' they'io alius a
talkin'to me about the men, but I
don't mind it ciiny. I'm irlad to rk
acquainted with von, for I ain't
much used to trav'lin', an' I like to
bev some one I can look to ler per
fection, if it's needed."
Job mentally concluded that she
was more capable of protecting her
self than he was of protecting her.
But he said ho should be happy to
do what he could for her.
"Air you any relation to the Du
senbcrry fani'ly liviu' uigh Piitnev ?''
asked Miss Stebbius.
'No, I don't think I be," answered
Job ; "never heard I bad any rela
"Mr. Duscnberry's deacon in the
Baptist church, an' a real nice man,
I alius thought," went on Miss Steb
bius "Seems to mc ho favors you
in complexion some. He's a sm'art
lookiu' man, an' I should ha' said
you was a connexion. Air you
goin' to Boston?"
"I be." answered Job; "thought
I'd go down an' stay till after the
"So he I," answered Miss Steb
bins. "I've got some tradin' to do,
an' it pays to do it where you can
look about an' choose. Solomon
Green keeps store up to Putney, an'
he does charge the most onaccount
able prices; now this alpacy how
much should you s'posc I'd ought to
have give a yard for it, Mr. Dusen
Job frankly acknowledged his
ignorance of such matters.
"Wall, sir," said Miss Stebbius, in
a tone which seemed to imply that
she didn't suppose he'd believe her,
but it was true as gospel, neverthe
less; "wall sir, he charged me forty
two cents a' a ha'f a yard, an'' I
couldn't get it a cent less. lie asked
forty-live, but I beat him down two
cents an'a-half, an' Mrs. Pringle
sho's tho minister's wife she got
one jest like it to Albany for thirty
seven cents I If that ain't outra
geous, I'd like to what is!"
"It's scand'lotis, ma'am." said Job,
who began to" admire her evident
business tact; "simply scand'lous,
"You're riirht," said Miss Steb
bius, "an' I told Almiry, bein's I'd
never been to Boston, I was goin'
down, an' I'd see if Solomon Gred'd
got rich out o' cheatin' me."
But now Job was iu love with
her that is, he felt that she would
make him a good housekeeper, which
stood for the sutno'thing iu his mind
as wife, and ho wondered if he
couldn't mnnagc to secure her. He'd
been wanting a wife for twenty
years. He had had chances, but,
like the foolish man he was, ho had
let them all slip. Now he consid
ered that the curious feeling he had
experienced that morning was a
presentiment of he didn't exactly
know what, but it evidently hail
something to do with Miss Stebbius.
He got out at a small station and
bought some hied chicken and apple
pie, and brought them in as -a votive
ollerim, sentimentally speaking, to
the lady ol his bosom's allection.
She accepted them with a smile that
made him happy for a week after,
every time ho remembered. Once
he dreamed about that smile, and
thought it sunrise, and got up and
dressed him-elf before be fairiy
waked up. When ho did come to
his senses he found it was half-past
1, and went back to bed wondering
if all men feel as he did when thev're
The tn.in started, and. just as Miss
Stcbbins was trying to swallow a
small chicken-bone, and making a
very wry lace over it, the cars gave
an awlul leap, and then none of
them knew very much about what
happened for the next few minutes.
When Job came to himself heAvas
sitting in a shallow puddle of water,
and the first thought which came, to
iiiiu "ii-j umi oe nau turned into a
big bull-lrog. But, looking about
him, in a bewildered way, for a so
lution of the mystery, he stw Miss
Stebbius sitting on a floating por
tion ol a wrecked car farther out in
the pond, dripping like Undine, if
not as agreeable to look at.
"Be you hurt, Mr. Duseuberry ?"
she asked, as she discovered him.
"Xo, I don't think I be," answer
ed Job. "Had a smash up, hain't
"Seems so," answered Miss Steb
bius. "I guess there hain't nobody
killed, an' that's lucky. I'm glad
you ain't hurt. I was" afeanl you
Hrr solicitude touched Job's heart
is nothing else ever bad.
''You ain't damaged any, be you ?"
he asked, anxiously.
"Not any to speak of," answered
Miss Stebbius, "but my rlo'os is jest
completely spilt. There's mv bumiii
sailiu' about over there, 'i wish
you'd git for me."
Job bccured a pole, and, after
angling unsuccesMuMv for a while,
got a bite and landed this new kind
ol lish on the bank, where it lay in
a very limp aud dejected condition,
having but little resemblance to
the showy bonnet Miss Stebbius
"I'm coinin' ashore," announced
"Let mo come an' git you," pro
posed Job, not without sonio tinni-
dation, it must be confessed.
"So, I can git along 'thont piittin'
you to any trouble," answered Mis.s
"What a self-reliant woman slio
is,' Job thought admiringly. "She'd
take care ofa man, now."
Stic gathered the ruined "alpacy"
about her, stepped oil the extem
porized rait, and waded ashore
without screaming snakes! or any
thing of the kind. Job concluded
that she was one woman in a hun
dred. So she was.
"You're all mud an' scum," said
she, after inspecting Job c!oel
"I II git a stick an' some grass an'
kinder clean you up." And for the
next ten minutes Job experienced
new and novel bliss in being "clean
ed up" by this energetic woman,
who had now obtained complete
possession of his heart. "She's a
manager," concluded Job. "If she
had charge of my place, now, she'd
make things fetch in snilim'. f
wish she had."
The conductor announced that it
would be two or three hours belore
they could proceed.
"Don't you teel as of vou'd like
sutbin' to eat ?" asked Job". "I "ness
you didn't finish tint ehickiii."
"I would like somethin'," answer
ed Miss Stebbius, and Job proposed
mat mey should viit a farmhou
near oy anu procure some.
"I'll set out hereon thif stone iny
tho. Kim mi' let- n...ci,- .:n i.U
ready," said Miss Stebbius. and took
a position on a rock by the roadside.
Job at down by her."
"I'm thankful we ain't killed,"
said she. "How lucky I got ac
quainted with you, ain't it? Friends
is always so pleasant iu sich times."
The glance which accompanied this
sentiment finished Job.
"Oh, Miss Stcbbins, le'mc be your
friend for life!" cried he, with an
awful pallor on his face, the effort
he made in saying it was so intense.
"I know it's sudden, but theul"
and there he stuck fast.
"Do you mean marriage?" asked
Miss Stcbbins, with such a warmth
at heart that her clothes dried rap
idly from the diffused heat.
"Yes, I do," answered Job; "I
"I don't know what John an' Al-
miry'd say, but I hain't no objec
tions, to speak on," answered Miss
Stebbius, with downcast eyes, and
"Then it's a bargain I" exclaimed
Job. "Glory! This is better'n the
Fourth ! I'm goin' to kiss you,
"You may if you want to, an' call
me Susan," she said.
The boy who was looking out of
the window reported to his mother,
busy over the dinner, that the man
was kisgin' the woman, an' ho should
think he'd be 'shamed of himself.
But Job never thought of such a
tiling! Wasn't he engaged to be
married? Aud didn't a man al
ways kiss a woman when she'd
promised to marry him?
I can't say what wonderful bar
gains Miss Stcbbins made in tho
dry-goods line, but sho went home

The HisIiCfet Ambition ofa
A married gentleman of our ac
quaintance takes pleasure in an
nouncing that "the highest ambi
tion ofa female mind should be to
cook a good dinner." Without
agreeing with this gentleman to'the
extent of such a sweeping assertion,
every sensible woman will admit
that a certain knowledge of cookery
is indispensiblc to the maintenance
ot a happy household and a contented
husband. Old wives will tell young
er ones that theway to a man's heart
is through his mouth, and this fact,
however painful to romantic young
ladies, becomes more apparent at
each succeeding jear of married
lite. It is only natural that men
should become somewhat gross by
contact with the vulgarity of the
woi Id; somewhat exacting in their
demands; a littlec ill-humord, per
haps, it the salad does not please
them, and very delightfully conver
sational if the dinner goes oil' well.
These objcctiou-iblc traits must be
taken along with the superior vir
tues of honor, manliness and con-t
slancy, as the quartz accompanies
the streak of gold. It is foolish to
wish otherwise, for a man devoid of
these faults would undoubtedly be
effeminate, and would bo therefore
an unworthy object of heroworsliip.
A young woman during the first
week of her married life entertains
vague suspicions that the above
statements are true, lier Charles,
who is almost, u not quite, exemp
from human failings, has already
mamlested a profound admiration
for veal pics, and has openly ex
pressed his detestation of overdone
mutton. She accordingly builds up
within her a fortress of resolutions,
iu which to guard that sacred treas
ure ofa husband's affection. In her
girlhood this young woman had
spent much time iu cultivating her
musical taste, in reading Emerson
and Carlyle;she had been loud of
pretty landscapes, and could use her
pencil with effect, and she had been
beard to declare with pride that
when she married she would give
up none of these things.
Let us visit her now at the end of
ten years of matrimony, and we will
find that she has broken her vow
aud thrown it to the winds. We
find a tiresome sort of person whose
whole intellect iu absorbed in at
tending to the cares ot housekeeping
and in getting stylish dresses for
her children, conversation rises
seldom iiiiov.o the level o ('infant gos
sip? and servants, and the only ideas
developed by time aud experience
mi lier conviction that men are most
unreasonable and selfish of crea
tures, and women the most abused
and self sacrificing.
Thcro is a great evil somewhere.
but what is it? The husband ac
knowledges to himelf that he is
disappointed in the wifo he has
chosen, and yet he finds difi'eulty in
pointing out her mistake, and can
hardly find cause to blame her, for
is she not a faithful wife, a devoted
mother and a most frugal manager.
The mistake is a national character
istic. So passionate and intense is
the American mind in pursuit of its
temporary interest, that men will
sutler the chains of business to bind
them down, and throttle them while
their wives bend beneath a similar
yoke or duty at home.
What is lacking is the power to
rise above the petty annoyances of
daily life; we need to learn to dis
tinguish tntles from ailairs of mo
ment, to know tint every mole hill
is not a mountain. We need not
forsake the upper strata of senti
ment, thought and ideality the
atmosphere of the soul because we
know that there is a lower one ot
routine and small vexations,in which
our feet arc told to tread. To
breathe in tho one is to receive
strength and refreshment for exer
tion in the other. It is a very good
plan to pick up needles and pins
from the floor, but picking pins
ought not to be made the chief ob
ject of existence, for if we Tnove
along with our heads constantly
downward, we most assuredly will
sec nothing better than niiis and
needles to the end of our davs. -s
If-culture is the dutv of evcrv
m being: and lies within the

does her husband great wrong who
allows her-self to sink into an in
ferior po-ition by his side, for wo
man's influence is wide-spread and
penetrating, beariug, directly upon
the taste and inclinations of her
husband. No amount of stack
ings to darn ought to excuse intel
lectual stagnation. - Philadelphia

Conviction for Worlf insf on
Last Monday Mr.Satnucl Mitchell,
who is known iu religious parlance
ns a Second Adventist, was tried by
the County Court under an indict
ment of tho grand jury for violating
paragraph -1,570 of the code of
Georgia, which makes it a misde
meanor to labor on?the Sabbath
day, except iu cases of necessity or
charity. Tho proof in Mr. Mitchell's
case was conclusive by his own
admission that he had hauled rails
and plowed on tho S.tbbath dav.
But he contended that his religion
required him to work six days, and
to rest ou tho seventh ; that from his
interpretation of the Sacred Scrip
lures, he felt it his duty to work ou
our Sabbath day, and to rest on our
Saturday. He tried to shelter him
self under the Constitution of the
state, article one, section oue, para
graphs twelve and thirteen, guar
anteeing to all men the right to
worship God according to tho
dictates of their own conscience.
The Judges decided that tho law
under which the defendant was
indicted had nothing to do with his
religious belief; that he could
worship God in anv manner and
anywhere that ho pleased, aud tho
laws ol Georgia made it a crime for
anyone to disturb him in his wor-
ship; that the law under which he
was indicted did not sav what relig
ious tenets he .should entertain, or
what he should reject; but only
decided that he should not labor on
the Sabbath day, except in ca?os of
necessity or charity, and tint this
Constitutional provision upon the
liberty of conscience did not excuse
acts of licentiousness or guilty
practices, inconsistent with the
peace and safety of the State; that a
disregard of the Christian S.ibbilh
iu violation of the laws of the coun
try would tend to demoralize tho
country, and would therefore en
danger the peace and safety of the

The worst thing thatcan happen to
a young man in college is to have a
father or mo'her so iiiiudicious as
to keep him amply supplied with
pocket money. It is fatal to all
studious habits, and in the end gen
erally fatal to good morals. This is
equally the case with a young man
iu business who is made to feel that
to him "salary is no object" that a
wealthy father's purse is always
open to his most extravagant de
mands. Nothing develops a young
mau like fighting his own way in
the world. Some spur of iiocessity,
some bracing air of adverse sur
roundings is needful to most men,
if they are to put forth their whole
power. The rich man's heir, nursed
and petted from infancy, and
shielded from battling with the
world never fairly learns to stand
erect and walk alone. If by any
chance he is stripped of his inherit
ed wi-plth, and has to learn to give
and take hard knocks like others, he
nearly always goes under in the
struggle at any rate he seldom re
gains by his own efforts the fortune
he had lost. Nearly all the wealthy
and cfl'ectivc men of this country
are poor men's son's sons. Nearly
all of the scholars, poets, orators
statesmen, are poor men's sons.
Wealth has its advantages it is true ;
but, after all, the son of a rich man
begins life with tho odds against
him. The poor man's sou has all the
odds iu his favor. He must work
or starve. He has nothing to lose
and every thing to gain. The rich
man s son lias al read v
tiou and every tiling that money can
give him. There Is much Ie?s to
sinve ior aim uiiiuitciv
inent to strive.
A lVonznn'f B'laii.
Mrs. Willard, in the Chicago Post,
alluding to the distress in the cities
of the countrv, savs: "The real
source of all wealth is the soil, and
from it must come ultimately all fi
nancial relief. Fortunately for this
country we have millions of rich,
fertile acres, only awaiting breaking
aud planting to laugh with the har
vest; we have inexhaustible mines
of mineral wealth; we have bound
less forests of valuable timber. It
ought to be a very simple problem
to get food and raiment for all iu
our country. And jut here is
where we wish to suggest a plan
that is without precedent. Cities
burdened with the uncmploved
might, instead of spending their;
poor-tax simply to keep the poor
from hand to mouth, purchase large
tracts of western lauds, and send out
colonies to settle upon them. Trans
portation would have to be furnish
ed, also seed, implements and main
tenance for a year at least, or until
the crops should be raised. A lien
on the houses, implements and land
would secure the ultimato reim
bursement ofa large portion of the
money expended. The rise in the
value of the land through cultivation
would be an important factor in the
success of the plan. The conditions
by which laborers should eventually
become owners of the land should
1 be easy yet definite. In a business
I point of view, it would be vastly
better than the constant waste of
money in merely feeding the poor.
In a moral point of view, nothing
could be more desirable than tho
draining away from large cities, to
pure, healthful, free country, and
villago life, the families of laborers.
And were some such plan organized
aud put in operation, thousands and
hundreds of thousands of laborers
would speedily avail themselves of
its benefits, and would not only
make themselves comfortable and
happy, but would eventually make '
the country rich. And to record the
increasing prosperity of the country
tinder a regime so entirely without
precedent would give a new and
delightful element to future history.

Some practical jokes act on the

a smart young man, who lives iii a
certain city, found a toad liopp'i ,
around iu the garden, and though
it would be a capital joke to pat it
in a table drawer and let it hop out
suddenly and frighten bis wif.
Before be closed the drawer he was
called into an adjoining room, nn.l
forgot all about the toad, which,
during the night, hopped out on t!i2
floor, and, crawling into a vscar.t
boot, pas9f d a pleasant ui''ht of is.
The next morning the honsehold
was horrified by shrieks of mascu
line distress, and an old woman on
the other side of the street, going
homo from markot, was knocked
nearly senseless by a flying boot
that came crashing through the front
window. The smart man said th:s
custom of nlavinir practical iokes on
people was as dangerous as it was
foolish, and it he over caught any
body fooliug around hi3 boots a tin
with toads, or anything etjc, Io
would teach them a salutary lesson .
