niece, r. veniess and charge, or
might have ustained any other re
lationship which makes it proper
for two ladies to travel together
The middle-aged gentleman was
sprightly and talkative. He soon
struck up an acquaintance with the
ladies, toward whom iu his zeal to
do, lie rather overdid the agreeable
bowing, and smiling, and chatter
ing over his shoulder in a way pain
fully suggestive, at his time of life,
of a 'crick' in the tick. He was evi
dently a gay Lothario.
The Quaker wore the uniform of
his sect, mid confined Ids speech a&
many parliamentarian would save
his credit by doing, to simply 'yeas'
and 'nays.' As lor myself I make it
an invariable rule of the road lolie
merely a looker-on and listen. iS
"Toward evening'"!' was aroused
from one of those reveries into which
a young man, without being a poet
or a lover, will sometimes lull, by an
abrupt query from the talkative
'Are you armed, sir?'
'I am not,' I answered, astonished,
no doubt visibly, at the question.
'1 am sorry to hear it,' he replied,
'lor before reaching the next stop
ping place, it will be several hours
iu the night, and we must pass over
a portion ol the road on which more
than one robbery is reported to have
The ladies turned pale, but the
stranger did his best to reassure
'Not that I think there is the
slightest danger at present,' he con
tinued, 'only when one is responsi
ble lor the safety of the ladies, you
know, such a thing as a pistol in
reach would materially add to one's
'V"iir principles, my friend,' ad
dressing ihe Quaker, 'are as much
opposed to ca.iryin as to using car
nal weapons?' .
Yua,' was the response.
'Have the villains murdered any
of their victims?' the elderly lady
Or have they contented them
aelven wilh wilh plundering
them?' acked the younger, in a tim
Decidedly the latter,' the amiable
gentleman hastened to give assur
ance; 'and we are none of us pre
pared to oiler resistance iu case of
attack, so nothing worse than rob
bery can possibly betall us.'
Then alter blaming his thought
lessness iu having unnecessarily in
troduced a disagreeable subject, Ihe
gentleman quite excelled himself in
his ellbrts to raise the spirits of the
company, and had succeeded so well
by the time night set in that all had
quite forgotten or remembered their
fears to I.vigh at them.
Our genial companion fairly talk
ed himself hoarse; perceiving which
he took from his pocket a box of
newly-invented cough drops' and,
after passing it to the ladies, he
helped himself to the balance ami
tossed the paper out of the window.
He was in the midst of a high
eueonium on the new nostrom, more
than half Ihe efficacy of which, he
insisted, depended on its being taken
by suction, when a shrill whistle
was heard, and almost immediately
the coach stopped, while two faces
hideously blackened, presented
themselves at each window.
'Sorry to trouble you,' said the
man on the light, acknowledging
with a bow two lady-like screams
from the back seat, 'but business is
business, and ours will soon be over
if things go smoothly.'
'Of course, gentleman, you will
spare, as far as may be consistent
with your disagreeable duty, the
feelings ol these ladies,' appealed the
polite passenger, in his blandest
Oh I certainly; they shall be first
attended to, and shall not be requir
ed to leave their places, unless their
conduct renders it necessary.'
And now ladies,' continued the
robber, the barrel of his pistol glit
tering in the lightof the coach lamp,
'be so good as to pass your purses,
watches, and such other trinkets as
may be accessible without loo much
The ladies came down handsome
ly, and were not further molested.
One by one the rest got out. The
middle aged gentleman's turn came
first. He submitted with a winning
grace, and was robbed like a very
Sly own affairs, like Ihesum I lost,
are scarcely worth mentioning.
The Quaker's turn came'next. He
quietly handed over his pocket-book
arrj watch, and when asked if he had
any other valuables said, 'Nay.'
A Quaker's word Is good, even
among thieve; so, after a hasty
'good-niirht,' the robber thrust his
pistol into his pocket and with his
two companions, one of whom had
held the reins of the leaders, was
'Stop!' exclaimed the Quaker, in a
tone more of command than ot re
quest. 'Stop! What for?' returned the
other iu evident surprise.
For at least two good reasons,
was the reply, emphasized with a
couple of derringers, cocked and
'Help!' shouted the robber.
'Stop!' the Quaker exclaimed;
'and if any of thy sinful companions
advance a step to thy relief, the
spirit will surely move me to blow
thy brains out.'
The rqjiber at the opposite win
dow and the one at the leader's head
thought it a good time to leave.
'Now, get in,' said Ihe Quaker, still
covering his man, 'and take the mid
dle seat; but first deliver up thy
pistol.' The other hesitated.
'Thee had better not delay. I feel
the spirit bciriii to move my fore
finger.' The robber did as he was directed,
and the Quaker look his place at his
side, giving the new coiner the mid
The driver, who was frightened
half out of his wits now set forward
at a rapid rate. The lively gentle
man soon recovered his vivacity.
He was especially facetious on the
Quakci'V) prowess. 'You're a rum
Quaker, vou are. You don't quake
worth a cent.'
'I am not a 'Shaking Quaker,' if
that's what thee mean.'
Of the 'Hickory,' or rather the
'Old Hickory, si ripe, I should say,'
retorted the lively uiau. Itul, the
Quaker, relapsing into his usual
monosyllables, the conversation llag
tred. Sooner than we expected, the
coach slopped where we were to
have supper and a change of horses.
We had deterred a redislrobution of
of our ell'ecls until we should reach
this place, and the dim light of the
coach lamp would have rendered (he
process somewhat difficult.
It was now necessary, however
that it should be attended to at once,
as our jovial companion had previ
ously announced his- intention ol
leaving us .it this point. He pro
posed a postponement until after
upper, which he ollered to go and
'Nay,' urged the Quaker, with an
approach to abruptness, and laying
his hand on the other's arm. 'iiusi
nes before pleasure; and, for busi
ness, there is no time like the
'Will thee he good enough to
search the prisoner?' he said to me,
still keeping his hand in a friendly
way, on the pasenger's arm.
I did so, but not one of the stolen
articles could be found !
'He must have got rid of them in
the coach,' the gay gentleman sug
gested, and immediately ollered to
go and search.
'Stop!' thundered the Quaker,
tightening his grasp.
The man turned pale and stru"--gled
to release his arm. Iu an in
stant one of the derringers was
leveled at his heart.
'Stir hand or foot, and you arc a
dead man !'
The Quaker must have been
awfully excited, so completely to
forget both the language and the
principles of his persuasion.
Placing the other pistol in my
hand, with directions to tire on the
first of the two men that made a
suspicious movement, he went to
work on the Lotharia, from whose
pockets, iu less time than it takes to
tell it, he produced every item of
the missing property, to the utter
amazement of the two ladies, who
had begun in no measured terms to
remonstrate against the shameful
treatment the gentleman was re
ceiving. The Quaker, I need scarcely add,
was no Quaker at ail, but a shrewd
detective, who had heen set on the
track of a hand of desperadoes, of
whom our middle-aged friend who
didn't look near so middle-aged
when his wig was oil was the chief.
The robbery had been most adroitly
planned. The leader of the gang
had taken passage in fhe coach, and
after learning, as he supposed, our
defenceless condition, had given the
signal to his companions by throw
ing out the scrap of paper already
mentioned. After the unexpected
capture of the first robber it was
attempted to save the booty by
secretly passing it to the accomplice
still beliejred to be unexpected
who counted on being able to make
off with it at the next stopping
place. The result was that both, for
a eeasou, did the state some service.
Aids to Correct Table .Tluuner.
1. As to table appoint incuts. The
cloth should he scrupulously clean,
though it be only coarse material ;
nicely starched and ironed, and put
on straight, its folds parallel with
the sides of the tablet und they with
the sides of the room. The napkins,
of however coarse material, must
also be clean, carefully ironed and
put on in place. The arrangement
of the dishes on the table must be
uniform, regular and tasteful, oach
dish, plate, spoon, g!as, being in its
appointed place and kept there. Any
one accustomed to orderly appoint
ments by habit 90011 learns to feel
Ihe necessity of taste and exactitude
These are fearfully neglected in
many families. Table furniture of
all sorts is hustled on without re
gard to appearance of order, the
napery is disgusting, the careless
ness iu disposing it equally so, and
the results are only such as might be
2. As to-the food. It is impos
sible to feel polite and well man
nered over unpalatable, coarse, ill-
prepared, indigestible food. Kvcry
mouthful of it provokess ill-humor,
resentment, dissatisfaction. The
house mother who insists on good
table manners must give her family
good food. There is no need of sour
bread, muddy coffee, soggy pota
toes, heavy pie-crust, leathery batter
cakes. Chesterfield himself would
forget his manners if compelled
for any length of time to subsist on
such a diet.
:?. As to method of eating. With
the assistance of the knife- and fork
the food may be so divided as to
relieve ihe incisors of the heaviest
part of their work, and make small
inouthfulsa pleasure. The grinders
indicate that grinding in the. mouth
is a part of the process of nutrition.
Animals destitute of grinders bolt
their food. It is not fitting that hu
man beings should eat as dogs do,
since they have each a "mill" ready
for use which dogs have not. The
lips are so instructed that the noise
of the grinding, which is intolerable
to ears polite, may be effectually
disguised. This is a point that can
not be too urgently insisted on
Food, whether liquid or solid, huh I
be conveyed into the mouth and
from Ihe mouth downward silently-
The position at the table sdiould
be unconstrained and eony. the per
son silting erect or slightly bent
forward when eating, so that the
month may be directly above the
plate; the arms should be held at
the side, not extended at right angles-
with the body. The elbows
should be kept ofl'the table. Leaning
hack in one's chair, or dancing on
one leg of the chair, is a grevious
violation of table etiquette, permit
ted only and wrongly to spoiled
children. The mouth and fingers
must be kept, during all the process
of eating, absolutely, clean. The
dainty eater will keep his plate in
order and leave it so, witli knife and
fork laid together across the plate.
The use of the fork to the exclu
sion of the knife in carrying food to
the mouth is insisted on. Leave
taking is admissible only by per
mission of the hostess. Table talk
should be light, agreeable, general,
each person present contributing hi?
or her quota to the general fund, and
children observing the excellent rule
of being 'seen and not to bo heard,"
unless they are in such majority that
the conversation is keyed to their
Parents who will he at the pains
to ;ct their children such examples
as they wish to see followed, and
will themselves conform to a high
standard of table etiquette, will have
little dillicuky iu attaining the re
sults of culture they all desire.

abroad in the world, but don't try to
dazzle or astonish the people by it.
And don't imagine a thing is so sim
ple because you may happen to think
it is. Don't be too sorry for your
father because he knows so much
less than you do, he used to think he
was as much smarter than his father
as you think you are smarter th-in
yours. The world has a great need
of young men, but no greater need
than the young men have of the
world. Your clothes fit you better
than your father's fit him, they cot
more money, they are moro stylish.
He used to be straight and nimble,
uid perhaps, thought his father old
fashioned. Your moustache is neat

you are prettier, oh, so far prettier,
than "pa." But, young man, the old
gentleman gets the biggest salary,
and his homely, pcramblingsignature
on the business end of a check will
drain more money out of a bank In
five minutes than you could get out
with a ream of paper and a copper
plate signature in six months.

I went a tew weeks since Into a
prison to see a young man who bad
once been a Sabbath-school scholar.
The keeper took a large bunch of
keys and led us through the long,
gloomy halls, unlocked one door
alter another, until at length ha
opened the door of the room where
sat the young man we had uom! to
see. The walls of the room were of
stone, Ihe door of thick plank, and
before ihe windows were strong
iron bars. Without, ail was beau
tiful. The green fields, the sweet
tloweni and the singiug birds were
is lovely a ever, but this young niau
could enjoy none of these; no, never v
a-iain could he go out, for he was
condemned to death. Yes, he had
killed a man. and now he himself

I sat down beside him and talked
"Oh," said he, as the tears rolled
down his cheeks, "I did not mean
to do it, hut I was drunk ; then I got
angry, and before I knew what I
was about I killed him. Oh, if I had
minded what my Sabbath-school
teachers said, if I had minded my
parents, I should never have come
It would have nidde your heart
sore, as it did mine, to see and talk
with him. Once hd wis a happy,
playful child, like you ; now he is a
condemned criminal. He did not
mind his parents, did not govern his
temper, and as he grow older went
with bad hoys, who taught him bad
habits, and he became worse and
worse, until, while drunk, he killed
a niin ; and now, after a few weeks,
he must die. As I left him he said :
"Will you not pray for me?" and
he added, "Oh, tell boys everywhere
to mind their parents and keep away
from vicious companions." Hand

Sniflles brought his two weeks'
spree to a close on Thursday night.
He lay on the lounge in the parlor,
feeling as mean as sour lager, when
something in the corner of the room
attracted his attention. He asked
'Miranda, what is that?'
What is what, Likcy?'
Suutlles' name is Lycurgus, and
his wife calls him Likey for short
'Why thatthat thing in the cor
ner,' said the frigbteued man point
ing at it with a shaking hand.
Likey dear, I see nothing,' replied
'What, don't you see it ?" he shriek
ed. 'Then I've got 'em. Oh, heav

bring it quick ! Here, on this sacred
book I swear never to touch a drop
of whisky. If I break my vow may
my right hand cleave to the roof of
my mouth and '
Here, catching another glimpse of
the terrible object, he clutched his
wife and begged in piteous tones :
'Don't leave me; don't leava your
Likey,' and burying bis face in the
folds of her dress he sobbed himself
into a troubled sleep.
Then his wife stole gently to the
corner and picked up the toy make
and threw it into the stove.
"Give me the hand that will never
deceive me," said a young Cleveland
sprig iu the presence of some young
ladies the other evening. A young
lady who had heard of the young
man's propensity "for the gaming
table, dryly remarked, "I gneis a
straight flush is the only kind of a
hand you want."
