The Cornhill Magaeine. CHARLEY PERRY'S LICK. OB WON AT LAST. rKOat A OONTRIBUToH TO THI CASS CITT, MIOK. NTIRPRUI. CHAPTER I. In the village of C , in the state of Pennsylvania, there stood, at the time our story opens, a small frame house of dilapidated appearance. Al though it was inhabited, nothing in the exterior appearance would impress the casual observer with this fact. The lawn in front was overgrown with weeds, even so dense 03 to obstruct the entrance. Going into the cabin, one wai made to feel the utter loneliness of the dwelling and its inmates. In one corner stood what was once a table. In the opposite a bed with scanty cov ering and the centre of the room was taken up by a couple of rude chairs which had seen better days. One was occupied by a boy, a lad of seventeen years, and the hero of our story, a bright intelligent countenance, clear eyes, in which one could read determination and a resolution to do what he under took, and do it well. The other, one was occupied by a woman, a mere wreck of her former self, and one might see by her countenance that she had lost all care for the future of her self and her son. The silence, which had lasted for some time, was at last broken by the son. "Mother," he said, looking up rather quickly from his tattered and apparent ly well read book. "Well, what is wanted now? Some new whim I suppose has got into your head." "No, mother, not that, but " "13 ut what?" said his mother, rather napishly. "Well, to tell the truth, I am tired of this humdrum kind of life, and am going to start in the world for my self." "And fail, as such rattleheaded boys do sooner or later. I tell you, Charley, the best way to do is to stay at home and help your father in the shop, and learn the trade." "0 fudge on the trade! a cooper. Why, mother, father has worked at it all his life and now he is no better off than when he began, nor as well. I am going to go to California and dig my fortune out of the ground!" So saying, he took Lis hat and left the house. As he passed out of the yard, he met Squire Williams, a very wealthy man in the place, and accosted him with: "Good morning, Mr. Williams; this is a pleasant morning." "Very," replied the Squire, looking down at the pleasant countenance of the lad. "How is Mr. Terry, your father, this morning? " "0 as well m can be expected for one that confines himself to a shop all the time. For my part, I want the clear open air to live in." "How would you like to come and live with me on the farm?" asked the Squire. "First rate, if you think you would like me well enough to give me a trial." Well, come over to-morrow and we will begin." "All right;" and elated by the thought of earning his own livelihood,he hurried on to tha shop to acquaint his father with his good luck. Entering the shop he told his father of the proposal the Squire had made, and asked his opinion of it. "A good chance for you," said his father. "When do you go to work?" "To-morrow." "Well, I hope you will try and do as well as ycu can. Only gain the Squire's good will and keep it and then you will get along all right." "I mean to try and do all that I can to please him," said Charles, and he left the shop. CHAPTER IL According U his promise, Charles was at the 'Squire's early the next morning, ready to go to work ; and from that time forward, for the next three years, he performed his labors so well that the old 'Squire, although a man of strict principles, reposed strict confidence in him, even so far as to leave entirely to him the whole control of his vast estate. In fact, he was the overseer of all the farming part of the business ; and so well was the duty performed that the people of the surrounding country were heard to say that the Squire was get ting wealthy from the big improve ments made by Charley Perry, "The Boy Farmer," as he was known by the villagers. "When he had been there three years an Incident occurred which upset his plans for life. The 'Squire had an only daughter a blithe, young creature, with step like the bounding fawn, eyes like the gazelle. hair of a clear golden brown, and a form faultless in tbe extreme, and an expression in her countenance that be tokened amiability and good temper. Mabel Williams had been reared in opulence, but she was, nevertheless, a good, amiable, and affectionate daugh ter, and obedience to her father was the first law of her nature. Her mother had been dead a score of years, and Ma bel could not recollect of ever having seen her, so that she had not had the advantage of a mother's advice. There fore, she went to her father for council in all matters wherein she needed it. She and Charles formed for one another an early attachment, albeit one was ignorant of the other's feelings. Upon one occasion she and Charley had been for a ride in the carriage, and were returning home. Charley thought he had lived in suspense long enough, and broached the subject next his heart lie told her how he had learned to love her by being in her company for the last three years, and also how he had striven to gain the confidence of her father that he might be near her, and have the pleasure of her company each day. She in return admitted that he had won her love, but told him that in order to become his wife she must ob tain her father's consent. This Charles was afraid would be no easy task, as it subsequently proved; but they rode home in hopes that it might be obtain ed and that two loving hearts might be permitted to enjoy the society of the other. But they were to be disappoint ed in this, for when Mable with her arms around her father's neck, told him of their affection for each other he stormed and swore by turns, and finally ended by discharging Char ley forthwith. And poor Charley was obliged to depart from the place that had become a paradise to him in tne last degree. But he was undaunted. He resolved to go to California at once, and told Mable of his resolve. She could do no more than to wiah him success in his undertaking and bid him good-by with tears in her eyes, and a farewell clasp of the hand. "Hemember me, she said, "when you are far away; and perhaps some day we may meet again under more favorable auspices than now; and above all be true to me. For my part I will be as true to you as the robbin in yon der elm to his mate." Charles gave her his promise, and pressing on her lips a kiss he left her to seek his fortune. CHAPTER III. We will pass over the next three years and visit the estate of the once wealthy Squire. As we near the gate way we perceive a large concourse of people gathered at the entrance. In quiring the cause, we are told the Squire is dead had committed suicide in the night, and the inquest is being held to-day. We pass into the house and on to the room occupied by the Squire, and gaze on the last remains of the once opulent farmer. 'Can it be, says one, "that the Squire was financially embarrassed that caus ed him to commit the rash act?" This and other conjectures were the subject of conversation by the villagers, but time and a thorough investigation of his affairs only could answer. A week passed by, and all conjectures were set at rest by the announcement in the daily papers that the Squire had died insolvent and that it would take all his vast estate to pay his liabilities. The farm must go, and the once proud daughter Mabel would be a homeless and penniless wanderer on the earth; for of kindred she had none, except an aged aunt, and anything but good feel ings existed between them at this time. Mabel, since her father s death, had busied herself with gathering together various little articles mementoes of her own and her father's and now that that was done she began to reflect on her past life, especially on the last few years. Naturally her thoughts re verted to the time that she parted with Charles Perry. Oh, if he were here now he would sympathize with her and be her friend in this hour of affliction, but she had the burden to bear alone. Weeks rolled on, and the day of the sale that was to deprive her of all she held as her own, drew near, and she busied herself with making ready for her departure to-morrow. "This," said she to herself, "drives me from the last place I can call my home" The day came at last and the estate had been looked over by men who had an eye to the value of it. The very hour had come that was to see it in the possession of another, when a horseman was seen to ride up to the gate, dismount, and approach the house. He was a tall, finely-built, mus cular man, and had evidently been ex posed to hardships, the extent of which his hardened hands and bronzed com plexion could give the beholder a very good laea. lie iooKea aoouc mm a few moments, and at last approached the auctioneer who had already began his work. Already had the bidding be gun to lag, one man, a lawyer, being the only one that seemed to want to pay anywhere near the value of the estate, and he had only offered $8,000 about one-half the value. The auc tioneer was about to strike it off to him wnen "fiz,wu' was heard to come from the vicinity of the stranger, and a run was the consequence. Up, up, un til it reached the enormous sum of $20,000, when it was struck off to the stranger. He immediately entered the house and was met by Mabel who handed him the keys. "No; said he, in a clear, manly voice, "not yet. I wish you to stay till to-morrow, and then I will take pos session. He then returned to the village, got the deeds made and paid for the estate. and the old magistrate of the village said in the presence of several of the villagers that he paia it all in gold, and all new pieces at that. The next morning.true to his promise, he called at the estate to take possession, but his appearance was altered by the change that had been made in his ap parel, and by the application of a razor to his face. He entered the house and went to the parlor as if he were well acquainted with the house. He met the servant girl and asked her for her mistress. "Tell her that I wish to see her In the parlor if she will please to favor me with her company." Presently she came. He met her at the door. "Here," said he, "is a paper. I wish you to read, and I will return In a few moments and see what you think of it." He then passed out the door, but lingered in the hall. Presently he heard a smothered ac clamation in the room he had just left and on re-entering beheld the young lady kneeling In the middle of the floor, sobbing aloud. Approaching, lie raised her irom we floor, and applied a glass of water to her lips. He then asked her the cause of her grief. "Grief I" she replied, "it is for loy that I weep. But there is one thing that I do not understand, and that is why you, a stranger, should have deigned to buy the estate and get the deeds drawn in my name." "Miss Williams, do you not know me?" he asked. She looked at him a moment and re plied: "You have the advantage of knowing me while you are yec a stranger to myself." "Then I will be no longer. L,ez me see the deeds." She handed them to him, he withdrew a moment, and soon returned and handed her them again. She could hardly keep her footing as she beheld the change in every place where the name of the stranger had appeared as "Charles Hansom" to Charles Ransom Perry." It was her old friend and lover Charley. And so she called him the first time she -had occasion to ask a question. Charley," said she, "what can I ever do to repay you for the good that you have done this day?" By keeping the promise that you gave me three years ago; he re plied, and she answered him by laying her head on his breast and look ing up into his eyes with a look of the fullest confidence. In a short time they were married; and Charles has been often heard to say that he was not sorry he gave 120,000 for the old Williams estate. Modern Surgory. The latest triumph of modern sur gery is the repair of a Boston woman who had fallen seventy feet and broken her necks. The neck was broken just as the necks are of culprits who are hanged on the gallows namely by the dislocation of the vertebrae. Fortu nately the spinal marrow was not in ured or the repairs could not have been made. Having chloroformed the poor woman, the physih ans had the pleasure of hearing the bones and liga ments snap as they forced the displac ed vertebiae iuto proper position. The woman, on awaking, seemed to think that her head had come off and that it had been put on crooked. This oper ation suggests a new field of experiment on the bodies of executed criminals. Attempts have frequertly been made, sometimes with partial succees, to re store Hfe by means of powerful elec tric currents. Let the next surgical experimenters try setting the dislocat ed neck. It can't do the man much harm and might set him partially or wholly to rights. There teems to be hardly any limit to scientific research. A Plucky Woman's Reward. The New York Staats-Zeltung is printed in a building occupying the site of what was once the country residence of one of NewYork's earliest governors Gov. Tyron. This handsome and stately structure, built of white granite, is a monument to the courage, common sense and indomitable perseverance of a German lady, whose husband died several years ago, leaving her a little newspaper and a family of six children. She was oilered $500 for the paper, but would not selL The editor, who had been in her husband's employ, agreed to continue at his post, and as he was well fitted for his work and was not interfered with in the editorial depart ment, the little journal began to make money. Its circulation among the Germans increased very rapidly, and the widow found herself growing very rich. Fearing she might lose the young man who had been so useful in advanc ing her fortunes she married him. At his suggestion, a few years ago, the present Staats-Zeiting building was erected at a cost of $300,000. The pa per is now one of the most valuable properties in the country; and Oswald Ottendorfer, still its editor-in-chief, is one of the leaders of the Germans in New York, In all political movements. Mrs. Ottendorfer had educated and settled in life all her children; but has not yet relinquished the business con trol of the Staats-Zeitung. Every morning at 10 o'clock she is to be seen in the publication office attending to the finances, making contracts for printing paper or presses and giving orders as to the employment and dis charge of help in the mechanical de partments. Every year she gives away large amounts of money in charities; and one of her noblest works in this direction is a "home" for old women, on which she has already expended more than $50,000. A curious double pine tree is grow ing near the line of Green aad Jackson counties, Mississippi.

The leading wholesale dealer' in books and stationery in the beautiful City of the Straits, or anywhere in the Michigan Peninsulas, by undisputed precedence, is Thorndike Nourse. This young gentleman came from Boston to the Northwest about ten years ago, bringing to the city of his choice an in valuable re-inforcement of the charac teristic shrewdness, energy, and enter prise of the Hub, He became a mem ber of the then notable firm of E. B. Smith & Co., occupying the spacious premises now used by the American Express Company, at tbe southwest corner of Griswold and Fort streets. He remained with Messrs Smith & Co. for about seven years, and upon the dis solution of that house in 1880, assum ed and carried on its business, with successive enlargements and increasing prosperity, until this year, when he mainly retired from the retail trade, and devoted his abilities to his growing and hope ful wholesale interests. For several years, under E. B. Smith & Co., and then Thorndike Nourse, the establish ment had been popularly maintained on Woodward avenue, northeast corner of Lamed street, where a well stocked re tail store and some of the lighter branches of Mr. Nourse's own business are still conducted. This location, how ever, was not satisfactory as a perma nent place for the broader trade which he contemplated. At his instance, ac cordingly, the proprietor of the site now occupied (at Nos. 47, 49, and 51 Lamed street, southeast comer of Shelby,) erected the elegant McMillan building, which fills a worthy place in the recent and noble architecture of thj city. In the spring of 1882 Mr. Nourse, whose ideas had been embodied in. every feature of the edifice, took the entire leaseof.it and now occupies nearly the whole with the various de partments of an establishment which has already come to be one of the most marked characteristics of the manufacturing and wholesale inter ests of Detroit. A considerable panora ma would be required even to hint the beauty of the views to be had from parts of it, across the city and the broad river to the dominion of Her Britannic Majesty, or to indicate Us eligible situation for business. It is scarcely more than a biscuit-tos3 from the post-ofllce, whose site, by the recent decision of the Government au thorities, is to remain undisturbed, ex cept by early extension and improve ment, for, probably, the next fifty years, at least. It is within five minutes walk of all the principal steamer land ings and hotels; is directly upon the horse-cars, running to the Central depot, the chief railway station in the city; and is within pistol-shot of every other trainway in the place. The famous Woodward avenue is but two blocks distant; Jefferson avenue but one block. Better judgment in the choice of a present and permanent lo cation for such a business could not have been had. The edifice thus fortunately occupied by Mr. Nourse is six stories high, in- ludmg the basement story. Entering this, the clatter of busy machinery cheerily greets the visitor, for Mr. Nourse js a printer, binder and publish er, as well as bookseller and stationer. To his presses, in printing rooms and bindery, comes large work from far and near; in one recent case that of a huge encyclopaedia for subscription circula tion, across two states and part of an other, even from the interior of Iowa, and passing Chicago printers on the way. For that matter, a well-known Chicago house, having a heavy con tract for the production of the Supreme Court reports of Michigan, has all the mechanical work done by Mr. Nourse; and no neater work, in sll particulars of typography and bindiug, appears in the law-books of any state in the union or country of the world. His workshops are also constantly engaged in turning out the issues of two of the publishing houses of Detroit among the most popular subset iption books in the mar ket, largely by reason of their superior presentations to the eye. A vast deal of occasional and transient work is al so turned out of the various branches of the manufacturing department. Mr. Nourse is likewise himself a publisher of no small productivity. Among the more important work bear ing his imprint, are the thirteen vol umes of the "handy volume Shakes peare," for which there is steady and increasing demand; the writings of the celebrated Orestes A. Brownson, long editor of the Boston Quarterly Review, prepared by his son, now a resident of Detroit (In press), a new edition of Dr. John Brown's -"Rob and His Friends," Buperbly illustrated with original steel plates, and retailed at the price of five dollars; Webb's "Word Method" and the accompanying apparatus, which have been the means of introducing an improved way of learning to read into many thousands of schools; Smith's Interest Tables; School Registers, in two sizes; and Smith's Class-Book. By all the printed productions of the house the basement story is kept music al with the movement of a fine Camp bell four-roller press, a complete Camp bell and a Cranston, and several other presses are in motion above and below stairs. Mr. Chas. Kamerhoff is "on deck" in his department, and Mr. II. R. Winn is foreman in the composing room. This is at the other extreme of height, occupj ing the well-lighted and ventilate' uppermost story, to which, as to all the floors, an elevator gives prompt and convenient access. Upon this floor we notice many immense rolls of paper, such as are used by the per fecting presses printing the leading daily journals, which reminds us that Mr. Nourse also carries a heavy bust ness in "news print," furnishing, for example, the entire supply of the De troit rost and Tribune. Three of the floors below the com posing room, in the west half of the building, are occupied by the bindery, employing about eighty hands, under the competent charge of the veteran bookbinder, Mr, II. T. Cliff. To him the establishment is Indebted for val uable improvements, as a simple ma chine for the removal of superfluous gold leaf after embossing, which is elsewhere done by hand. The bindery has a very full -equipment of embos sing and other presses and machines for ruling, numbering, folding and other purposes. The highest of the , floors given to thetblndery is almost ex clusively devoted to the manufacture of blank-books, which is one of the spe cialties of the business, and for which it has high reputation. Some of the book bindings in the rooms below are quite unique, as that of "The Success, lul IIousekeeper"in a beautiful pattern of oilcloth, peculiarly adopted to meet the dangers of the kitchen and pantry. The most attractive rooms of all, however, are naturally the sales or sample departments, occupying the ground floor. Immediately at the cor ner of Shelby and Lamed streets the spacious room devoted to books and the finer articles of stationery, which ap pear in infinite vaiiety of beauty and excellence. Miscellaneous books, photograph, autograph, scrap, card and picture albums, papeteries, writing fluids and inkstands, blank books, fold ed papers, etc., etc., etc., in brief, ev ery article properly carried in the wholesale business, are shown here in wondrous and bewildering variety. An ingenious additltion of galleries has added greatly to the storage capacity of the rooms. The second one is devoted more closely to the specialties of Mr. Nourse's trade to stationery, as repre sented by flat papers, envelopes, blank books, inks, etc., vast piles of which cover the floor and line the galleries. A well equipped accountant's office, witk immense but elegant safe, is at the street end of this room, and it forms a very pleasant office, which is occupied by Mr. E. S. Baker and his several assistants. Be tween the rooms, but opening out of the first, is Mr. Nourse's private office, handsomely and tastefully furnished; upon the other side of the room is the desk of Mr. C. M. Gilbert, superintend ent of this department. 6)n the east side of the building, in stories above the stationery and accountants' room, the boxes, shelves and other carpenter's work required in the business, are man ufactured. The whole forms a hive of busy and well directed industry, such as is rarely seen in any city of our west ern world. Human Ravens. Those people who are always croaking out prognostica tions of evil are great nuisances. They are those who see spots in the sun, blemishes in every one, and to whose morbid mind the world is always grow ing worse. Morbid, unsatisfied, slug-gish-livered people, only one degree less aggravating than those who persist in crying up the glories of the "old times," and in ignoiing all the evidence of modern progress. Now and then one is tempted to wish that there could be a fair division of people, and all the grumblers be closeted off into one cor ner, all the bright-tempered, sun-shiny people into another. The ranks of the croakers would soon be thinned,, and the army of those who believe in "hu man possibilities" would grow. "The sunrise never tailed us yet, and up the east another day shall chase the bitter dust away." A realization of that fact would help along more than all the growling over ignorance and folly and evil ever has done or ever will do. Hope and belief in the possible brightness of the morrow, faith in the capacity of man, woman and child.to rise, are what the world needs. What article does a marketman be cume, when he cheats? What article is he considered, if always fair in his dealings? Livo and Lot Livo. Life is not always under our own control, but it can be prolonged by care and prudence.
