I Jnu't know but I eau. What do you want, of it ? Won't Krinnler trust yon any uioro ? Now don't, Tom. I inn not going to KtisfcU i'h to-night. My wife's mother has I'niue to see uh, and I'm afri l tbu stock of provihions is rather luw. Well, go along with we to tny bouse, and I will lend you the money. I do not carry money with ui. Ou the way bo Baid, I really winb, Ned, you could be persuuded to leave off drinking. I know it's a curse to tee. I used to think I eoul.1 h ave off auy time; but I find now it u not so easy um I once thought. It waa all folly tor wo to forio the habit; but did form it, and must tuke the cont,eipieuces. I ued to talk to you, but when I found that it did no good, and tbut I waH making you my enemy, I ceased. My desire that you should reform is as strong as it ever was. You did not drink years ago and I should like to know bow you got into tba habit? I will tell you sometime why I drauk and why I drink still; but I have no time now, for we are at your gate. Well, walk in and I will get you the money. They entered tbe house, and two children ran into the hall and put np their lips for a kiss; and when they en tered the sitting room, Mrs. Larned was about to do the same, when she observed some one with ber bnsbnnd. When she found that it was Master ton, ahe spoke to bun civilly, and yet ratber coolly. Tbe table was iu the middle of tbe room, loaded with food, and the tea pot was singing on the top of the parlor cook stove. A large book cane nearly covered one side of the room, and Mas tertoa noticed that it was well filled with books. There were t-ngr.vings and paintings elegantly framed, bang ing on the walls, and the room bad an air of neatness and comfort, aud even luxury. lie was requested to be seated but declined. Mr. Larued htepped into the bed room and came out with a well fill ad wallet, and took out a two dollar uote aud handed it to bis bhopmate, saying, You said two, didn't you ? Yen. Much obliged. I will muke it right ou Saturday. Good night. Good night. Husband, said Mrs. Larued, have you been lending money to Ned ? Yes. Y'ou'll not get it again unless you dun bim for it, and if you duu Lnu he will get angry. He'il go duwu to Kmhler's l and fcpead every cent of it for lup-lor be j fore bo goes to bed.

Somehow I am just now in such a stato i( uiiud, that it i,l be a relief to ieiik. I have thought more of it since I as at your bouse the other eve ning, than ever before. The fact is, Tom, I dou't tako any comfort at home, I am pel feet ly surprised I 1 thought everything went p! .muiitly nt your house, exi j'ti; g, pi rh-i)H, when you luiebt bo a littlo tbe worn) for iirpii.ir. 1 have not Sreu tancii of your family of late, but always supposed your wife a woman who nou'd mike borne pleas a,t. My wife can appear a well as any person I ever mot. When she is in company, ("tin ban a mode of address which is very pleasing to those who meet ber. I will bay to you, however, that he lias n ternblu temper. Do aa best I can, I cannot do anything just right. 1 think you exaggerate. Perhaps your head is not uIwuvh clear. W ben a man comes home half or two-thirds drunk, I do not wonder that it stirs up a woman's temper. I should expect my wio would storm if 1 should enter my house reeling from drink. If it was only when I was drunk I would not say anything. It is just the same wbeu I am sober. In fact, Tom, this was tbe very thing that first set me to drinking. I could not take any com fort at homo, so I went to Krissler's. He bad a good fire, and a room full of company. We smoked and talked; and as tho evening was near spent, I took some beer aud went borne. Then I bad to listen to another tirade. Things went on from bad to worse; drunk or sober, it was all the satue. Whtu we have company, she gets the tea out I tbe way ttfore. - work-houre are over, aud when I get home, the leavings are set beforo me. I generally eat and clear out If I say anything she will give it back faster than I can. Since her mother came things are a lit tle different. Tho old lady is a good woman, and I really tako comfort at home. I rather think she's been talk ing to my wife; for says she but little, but what she says, is iu much better temper than usual. When I was at your house tho other evening, and saw how your wife and children treated you, I fairly eni cd you. Then I looked at tbe pictures and books, and thought that, if I bad uot spent so much for liquor, I might have bad things as nice as you. I am sorry fur you, Ned, but don't be discouraged. I hope things will al! come out right iu tbe end. I dou't know about that I can earn good wages, aid could pay off my ruort-" gugo iu the course of time. Still, ex cept as a fciiciter from storms,, and as a place to eat and sleep, my bouse affords me no comfort. How long is your mother-in-law to reinaiu with you 1 I dou't know. Why? liecuuso I want ber to come and seo my wifo. Ask her to call ou Monday. I presume she would be glad to call; but I am afraid even she will, in her heart, reproach me bitterly when she sees bow much nicer everything is at your bouno. I will tell ber, however. Y'ou won't say anything about what I have told you, for I don't want my mat ters made town-talk. I have a bttle plan in my bead, and I cannot carry it out without I toll my wife tbe substance of hat yu have re lated to inc. She wilt keep it to her self. On Monday, the mother-in-law of Mahtertou called on Mrs. Larned. Af- j tcr some conversation on unimportant matters, Mis. Limed ki'd the old lady tbe subbtauco of u hat bor bu.sband had ' related, and abked ber i it was true. : She said she did not doubt it. She add- -: ed, I have told Henrietta that she is ru- iuing Ed ard. He is naturally irrita j ble, and she love to provoke bim. I ba l not been there two hours before I . saw bow matters were going, I talked aeriously with my daughter, and told , ber kbe must refrain from saying bitter and irritatibg thing. I am thankful I jean see an improvement Once she j went so far a to say that she feared 'she should be drank out of bouse and home. I told ber that if she would make borne pleasant, Edward would fel a stronger dire to keep it fur ber. She said, Mothr, if KJ ard will only ktp driLkir.g, I il i.vcrspa,k anoth er cross word to bim. I will bit off my tonsfue first. i Gt)oJ, aaid Mrs. LarneiL I can see litt sbfad. Husband and myself will jnd tb evetiifig at your dangifer's to-morrow.

Af ter prayer bbs gave him a peculiar look which be well understood. He. spoke as follows; My friends, we are anxious fur your happiness. 1 loam, by Mrs. Hapgood, that you, Mrs. Mastertou, have promis ed that in case your buubaud will stop drinking, you will do nil in your power to make bis borne pleasant Is this true ? v She nodded ber bead. Then, timing to Mr. Mastcrton, he said: You told ine to day you would stop drinking if your wife would refrain )iu bith-r language Do you say go stilly I do. Well, then, I have a paper which I wish you both to sign. He took his memorandum-book from his pocket, and found a paper which he banded to them. They read it and al so signed it. It was as follows : We, whose names are undersigned, hereby solcniuly promise that wo will not drink anything that can intoxicate, and also that we will not use toward each other auy vio'.eutor abusive lan guage. , LnWABD M ABTEHTOH, Hesbietta Mastbiitok. We' are happy to say that they kept the pledge. It cost them at times a great struggle, but they persevered ,r! Krissler's was forsaken. Tbe mftrt gage waa lifted. Then came books and new furniture Mnsterton soon became tho overseer of the shop. Not many years elapsed before be became one of the firm. He and his wife always look back up on that evening as the turning-point in their lives, and were always grateful to Mr. Larned end Mrs. Hapgood. A Model Love Lettbr. Tho follow ing love letter was read in some court in France, not long since, pending a trial : ! i . Mademoiselle: It waa a saying of the celebrated Frenchman, Jean Jacques Rousseau whose name yoa very likely cannot pronounco that, to write a good love letter, you ought "to begin without knowing what you moan to say, and finish without knowing what you have written. Now, with nil due deference for Rousseau's talent in oth er respects, I may say, I do not believe this saying to bo true; and I shall eu deuvor to write iu opposition to it. mean, about what I write to yon, Ma ry, that I may guard against poisoning your mind with tlattery, or say any thing that may offend yon. I wish yon to understand that what I bay, I mean; that I neither write for writing's sake, for to please my own ffncy. I have, I hope, a higher aim, and a more honest and more noble intention. I need not blush to owu that my only object, ia, to wlrinper in your ear a pure and tender tale of love. I entreat you to consider it as n symbol of the boueHtness and truthfulness of the writer, as ft proof of his affection for you, and aa a bond which shall unite us forever. Know, then, that from the moment I first be held you, I have felt a lively interbst in yoor welfare, and your imago has fre quently presented itself to my mind. This will account for what passed W tween us ou Sunday evening. I have loved you for your beauty, but not (I hope; for that alone. "Iauty ia but skin deep," a'tbongh it is very agreea ble as every one knows.

We have seen chil dren a year old that have never tasted water wbeu they should have it bait a dozen lanes a day from tbe hour of their birth. We have found fathers who worked bard all day, corupUiu bit terly of being diet urbud at night by crying children, hence the cotutuuu use of Mrs. Wiuslow's southing syrnp, which only tends to iucreose tho irrita ble condition of tho nervous system, and permanently weakens tbe brain. Young mothers no doubt imagine that Mrs. Winslow is some experienc ed, liiiuini.u oki i ' ly, wbo loves little children, ki.ons just bow to sooth them to sleep and pilot them through all the pitfalls of infancy, wbeu, in fact, this abomti'ublu syrup is compounded by some ignorant man in whiskers, broad cloth aud boots, aud lives aud fattens on his ill-gotten gains, while babies are sent to untimely graves, or made idiots and lunatics for life.

A citizen of Ne braska thus posts an Eastern corres pondent who sparred a variety of ques tions as to the territory and life there i "What kind of a country do Too live in?" - . " - ' - "Mixed and extensive. It is made np principally of land and water." ' -What kind of weather V ' "Long spells of weather are frequent. Our sunshine conies off principally dur ing the day time." " I "Have you plenty of water and how got?" ' ' . "A good deal of water scattered about and generally got in pails and whiskey." "Is it hard ?" "Rather so, when ycu have to go half a mile and then wade in mud kneo deep to get it." ' J "What kind of buildings." "Allegoric, Ionic, nnti-baloric, log and slab. 'Jho buildings are chiefly out of doors, and so low between the joints that tbe chimneys all stick out through the roof." "What kind of society?" 'Good, bad, hateful, indifferent and mixed." "Any aristocracy ?" "Nary one." "What do your people do for a living mostly?" "Some work, some laze around, one's a shrewd businebS manager, and sever al drink whiskey." "Is it cheap living thero ?" "Only five cents a glass, aud the wa ter thrown in." "Any tftHte for music?" "Strong. Buzz and buck saws in tho day time, and wolf-bowling and cat fighting nights." "Any pianos there ?" "No, but have several cow bells, and a ti i tn-.n in every family." "Wbut could a genteel family in mod erate circumbUnoes do for a living?" "Work, shave notes, fi!b, bunt, steal or if pinched, buy and sell town projerly."

A year ago this spring, the son of a Vermont farmer left bom with a circus company. The family received no com munication from bim. A few days ago there came to the father a letter post- marked Flusbiug, L. I. Tbe writer attted that the missing son bad noma to his housa a few weeks before, in a feeble condition, aud bat) just (lied, asking, as a lust request, that his re mains might bo sent home. He, the writer, Mated that be was in poor cir cumstances, and nuked the father to send sixty dollars through tbe poatof lice to pay for a snituble coffin and olb expenses attending the dispatching of tho body homeward. Tho father, at first, supposed the letter to be genuine. Ho, however, in order to make sura that it was all right, sent it buck to the l'resideut of Flushing Village Willi a request to investigate tbe matter. Tb latter has discovered that tba son re ported as deid is not only alive but one of thenany iu bis employ. The at tempted swindler has not yet been de tected. He probably learned fiom tb ton of Lis prolonged absence from home, and resorted to ths bov scheme for raising the wind. Deat:i is tiik I'ace.

' He then requested the privilege of leaving bis pack until morning, as he was very tir ed, and could not carry it further that night This was granted, and the pack dnp'ieited in one comer of tbe sitting room. During tbe evening some of tho females of tbe bouse Lad occasion to move it, and taking hold of it di&coter ed that there was something suspicions about tb content.
