Doctor Iliulbut still stood in the pan

Aud having made up. his mind Doctor
Ilurlbiit betook himself to Ins ehainiicr.
Rut his face was not that of a man who
is ouite satisfied with his decision; and
he stood for a long tiiise at the window,
and looked down to the foot ot the lull,
where the widow Carter s house was
ultiinlv visible in the moonlight.
"No, no; ouce is enough for a man

And Doctor Iltirlbut, feelincrcven lens

down Lt his desk and wrote a prvscrfip

Just 04 lie tin is lied it his man Barries
brought him a note. It was from the

The-doctor' face cleared as he react
"Jittlc Sam llodgkins is waiting for
the answer, if you please, sir," said
Rmues.
And the doctor wrote a few words
hurriedly, in answer to Samuel Jlodjj
kins, not without grumbling at the man s
stupidity in not letting the widow have
the horse without applying to. him.
Rut Do matter! the widow wouldn't
have to ask for llack Pess again. "With
all my worldly goods I t hee endow," he
luenut towy to her very soon.
Uarnes was entrusted with the two
notes one for Mis Rose Carter, and
the other fur little Sain Ilodgkins to car
ry to his father.
In the meantime Charley had come
to a new resolve, lie would fee Mrs.
Carter once more, and try to gain her
consent to his marriage with Rose.
Without her consent, Rose would never
be his wife.
It was evidently a hnpelcs task to
try to overcome his father's prejudices;
btit he was determined that they should
not be allowed to destroy his happiness,
and Hose's, too, for life". Mrs. Carter
liked him; she would give Rose to him
willingly, she had told him, if it were
not for his father's objections; she
Uiight be persuaded to, in spite of them.
And there was no lime to lose, lor
I two davs he was going to a distant city j

Imped to carry Rose with him, but all
hi pleading had been of no avail to in
duce her to marry against her mother's
will. All his bwpes wow lay in influ
encing Mrs. Carter's mind. So early
that, illuming, he took his way to the
cottage at the foot of the hill. Squire
Carter had just left, and Mrs. Carter's
mind was still filled with anxiety regard
ing Rose's health which he had aroused;
so perhaps Chaiiev could not have
found a better time for trying to win her
over to his side.
lint , though she did hesitate for a. mo
ment, his pleading was in vain.
"Youkuow there is no one 1 wtmui

she said. ''Rut 1 know your iallier. lie

And the widow put on her cherry-ribboned

with a vim. With all his ful;s, Reu

"Charley was obliged to repress his

lie had fully made up his mind that
would be a lesser evil to have the
Widow Zilpha Thomas for a wife than
Mrs. Riirnes for a housekeeper, but he
had not the airof a very eager wooer;
and. iu truth, was not without his ini
givinajs; he saw in his imagination
the widow's bbu k eyes snapping de
fiantly at h:m,and wondered if he would
not le'ent, if she provedjf a quaielsome
temper.
And he cast two or three glances
hack fit the Widow Carter's cottage. a-
he did so he certainly sighed. The
Widow had been in the window, and
sh, bowed to him, ho wed and actually

Dr. llurll ut did l ot understand it.
He had mot her lt twice, to be sure,
since she had eouie b.k to the village,
two yeirs before, but at neither of those
times had she showu a:iy disposition to
recognize him.
His looks had invited a recognition
either then or now, but here she was as
sweet as a May morning! It was all her
artfulness, of course! She thought she
could cajole him into lotting Charley
marry her daughter, lie would send that
boy to Europe, t.o China, if it need be,
to get him out o Ke Carter's way.
Still it is certain that he sighed dee
ly as he passed the cottage and W idow
Thomas's black eyes snapped before him
all the more omininously in contrast
with the Widow Carter's soft, shy, blue
ones.
Was Mt-s Esther Wagg right, and
was it Possible that there was still a
spring of sentiment in the doctor's heart
....... , , ... .
which Utty years aii'i nis crusxy leiupci,
had not been able wholly to dry up.
From afar oil the Widow Thomas saw
him coming "riding along w ith grand,
careless air. as if he owned the whole
town," and she declared aud prepared
to do battle. She was in such a quiver
of indiirnation that her can-ribbon stood
un Ktrni.'ht. and the snaDDing eves of
his imagination, were as nothing compar
ed with these.
"How dare vou come here, you insult
ing, hvpocritical villain! you perfidious
wretch! Lave the house, sir, and if you
ever come here again I'll set Towser n)
oti vou as sure as l live!" she screamed.
To say that the doctor was amazed
would not fully express his emotion. He
was thoroughly alarmed aud lost no
tin. in escaiiiur from the presence of
the maniac as he felt sure she must be)
to his carriage.
"Insane from evil tamper! ah I knew

DR. HURLBUT'S PRESCRIPTION. BY ELIZABETH BIGALOW. To See Ourselves as Others See as.
From the Ashtabula Sentinel.
From the Ashtabula Sentinel. Something to Think of.
After a steady and persistent effort
the voters of this village, with the help
of the women aud minors of proper age
to sign a memorial, iuduc! our town
council to pass an ordinance, prohibiting'
the epejiing and keeping any place, for
thesiile of intoxicating liquors, inclu
ding lieer, Cider, and similar guzzles.
The effect of this was to add greatly U.
the sobriety and good order ot our viU
lage. Of course, We have uot reached
perfection; and now and then one of cur
citizens g-its drunk, or gets his whisky
bottle filled, and then fills himself end
cronies. But this is not an every day
ocurretiee; and it is rare enough to ex
cite remark and the question where did
he get it? Why he was over to Ashtabu-.
la, is the ready answer, youkniw it can
always be got there, in any quantity.
Such" a one and such a one always come
home tight from Ashtabula, when he
would be sober for weeks here, unless
he should meet some of the right fel
lows who had been there, and got a pull
from their bottles.'
Now this kind of remark might be
jpiilieable to other places; but Ashtabu
la is the handiest to us, and the odium.
ot furnishing Iinu or to get Urunlc
with falls upon that place. It is haudy
to get liquor there, and it is handy to
to cast the blame there. So our neigh
bors will have to bear it. .
Ashtabula is a nice, pleasant town,
and is growing, aud likely to improve,
with its new railroad facilities, still far
ther. It is so to speak, taking a fresh
start; and although it may not be much
of our business, we feel inclined to busy
ourselves so fur as to suggest to the
Borough Council of that place, that they
would do a good thing and a great thing
if they would pass such an ordidance
as we have in foive here; and if t!ie said
conncil will not do it, it would be just
as well for the citizens to urge them to
doit, till they dV They will, if they
are made to "understand that tho public
sentiment is in tavor of shutting up the
drinking shons. If puplic sentiment is
not in that shape why, Heaven help
llie id acts . .
W e hope to sec our neighbor village
make this reform and rid itself of th
reproach of having drinking holes and
deadfalls to catch its own people, and.
giving us and others occasion to lay sit
much of our sins ut their doors; for we
like Ashtabula and its people, aud there
fore wish them well.

Bellows or Dean Stanley; but his Ser

author's advanced thought. Each sue-

Mr. Reecher, during a few years past,
has lost the hold over the orthodox
church which he once maintained, and
has made no corresponding gain among
the liberal sects. He is an instance of a
