Her heart enk within tier, aud she thought with passionate longing of tlie swel home ptetnre she had looked in opon early that evening. Annie looked so blessedly happy and Walter so fondly proud, true and noble, that she could not help thinking of what her own lot might have been if "Eliuor, dear, there in a gentleman waiting for you in the parlor," said a gentle voice at lief dor. The blood left her cheeks, and her heart ceased beating a moment, tliuu poured a hot, flushing tide over lip ami brow as it fluttered fast like a prisoned bird "I will be down presently ," she con trolled herself to say ; ami then, thank ful that her dear old friend did not oetne in or say more, she hastily, nervously pieptred herself to meet the one gentle man whose nearneM could make sack snbtle, super-magnetic communication to her of his name. When she eotered the pallor a Xew minutes later, and Frank Stoddard rose eagerly to meet her, she forgot her de- terminal ion to be reserved, and, indeed, before she could speak, she found her self clasped close in those strong arms, and the brown, bearded were mur muring loving words very preclotM to ber lonely heart. But soon she drew herself away, saying, sadly : "This is not best for either of us, Frank; It will only make parting all tin harder." "Don't speak of parting uow, Elinor, before I have fairly seen you," sahl lie, impetuously, eeisiog her hands and holding tbem with such a firm, tender clasp tbat she wished tbey might only remain there forever. j ' Yoo are more beautiful than ever, Elinor," said he, as bis dark eyes rested on bar with loviog admiration ; awl then, sating the downcast eyes and blushing cheeks, he gathered her again to Ms heart, saying, with his oul In hi voice : "Ob, say darling, can you not yet re lent and make me happy ?" "No; don't answer me yet," lie said, as she raited her head from his breast. "JJsteo to me first, aud then decide. I have dooe everything you wished me to do, and, so far as my mother Is con cerned, It does no good, Elinor, and I am convinced it never will. She Is Im placable. T cannot understand her. Her conduct is a mystery. I ave tried in every possible way to win her con sent; by long, patient silence, as well as by earnest persuasion, and it is all alike useless. Now, I thiuk we have deferred to ber wishes long enough. I caonot feel tbat any consideration of duty or Honor require us both tosaeri & ourselves always as we are doing. At long as she can keep us apart she w ill ; bat if you will give me the right to eall yon my own, she will soon cease to resist the inevital.lt "O, Frank, you don't know bow hard you are waking it for me !" said Elinor, without looking up. "1 only wish I couM make it so hard yon could not possibly take another step in the thorny path you are walk ing, said Frank, quickly, just a tinge of impatience iu bis tone. "I must go on ; there is no retreat possible," said she, in a low voice, with drawing from his detaining arms and taking a chair, while she motioned him to one near ber. , He took one or two quick turns across the room in silence, though bis white forehead was drawn as if iu pain, ami the firm, clear-cut lip were compressed tightly. Tiien be seated himself before her, and said, In a low, earnest tone : "Elinor, if yon could only look at things as I do, you would retreat. It you only knew what I do, I believe you would not persist in entering on a life t-" exacting, so toilsome, so certain to I. ring you io contact with what Is re volting as well as distressing."

Ttiarn was something about this HUle peeuliarity of Ellnur'a when -he was troubled that always tosched Frank strangely. He longed to snatch up the white flugers to his li) ami !oothe them to peaceful reat, as a mother quiets ber little one; but he enutrolled his linptthve, and went en in low tones : "I had hoped, Kliuor, that you could see things as I do, at least; but If that eaiinot be, I will not reproach you. I know you thiuk you are doing right ; but oil, it It hard !' The young - msii rose hastily, and, walking to the wlbdow, parted the cur tains anil leaned his forehead agaiust the cool pane while he galeJ out into the night. The H ickerinK lights in the streets only teemed to render the ilsrk ne9 more )mlmble, ami Frank thoagbt, with a sharp jmIii at his heart, that the scene fitly represented to him bis lonely, darkened future, with Its few trausieut gleams of brightness athwart the gloom. Elinor, sitting silent where Frank had left her, felt that she had more thau she could bear just then. "Frauk," she saul at last, after a great anri.ii.ed. utiitt!url toue : "I will never i-auM ou such distreM again, Eliuor. Vt are right.

And she kirseil the while forehenii, ami gently put 1hi: the glossy waves of hair with trembling Hager-, wIhw light touch tlirilleil him to ttte anul.

Chif-ngo has been saltl to lie tne mode! of (brift aud enterprise In this country, but I wonder If Couey Island is not entitled to a rival claim. Take Foinuount Park, with its outlooks, gay bnilditips, railways, merry crowds, music, lunch stauds and Hying banners; place it on the sea-coast, with the surf heating up upon long stretches of gulden sands, with glistening sails in the oftlng, and you have a better idea of the place thau columns nf newspaper letters could give. Take the circum stances of the place. A long island, only separated by a little creek from Ivmg Island proper, brought by the im proved nieam of transportation within an boor's ride of New York. The pro moter of its success have gone to work in a way that is sure to be sulwtantlal. Several ronipaoie have built narro'V gauge mil roads communicating with Gotham, running to the llrightou ISeach and Manhattan hotels respect ively. The same corjsiratious that have built tbe railways have also erected the two hotels. Eai-h house has connected with it iHrge bathing facilities, the largest on the coast; restttbrauts aud re sort wherein bands of music play all day, and iu front of each a music-sUud on the mot improved plans, fan-shaped, aetlng as soiinding-boatd, incieasing the mviernf tbe orchestra and deepen ing the volume of sound. Here large and 'complete companies play every afternoon from four to half-past five, and evening from seven to ulue o'clock. A marine railway connects the two ho tels, less than half a mile apart.

When tea time arrived, my friend said, "Well, It is tea time, and Christine has not re turned ; we must try to get something "on the table." "Oh, dear !" saVB the daughter,- "I wish tbat girl would stay at home. What is to be done?" "Well," replied her mother, "in the flrat tdnee. there must be a fire made to beat some water for ten, and then set the table; thele Is plenty conked." "Oh, mercy! make a fire! I am sure I don't know how to do it," responded ber daughter. Then the weary mother, with aching head, explained the Nrocess. "Well," says the daughter, "I eall go and try ; but I haven't tbe least idea I can make ti lire so you need not expect to have auy tea for one hour lo come. Itut first I must pin up Ibis miserable dress, or I can do nothing." As she said this she gathered up yartU of cloth that she had been dragging around behind her, fastened it up to her waist, and left tbe room with a very ui-atinel look on her fuee. After she bad been gone a little while, her mother avid, "I suppose I may just as well go out and make tbat fire and put iu the tea first as last, for I don't believe she will ever get It mu le." And pressing her hand ou her head, she dragged herself out into tbe kitchen. As she mfed out, I lieititl these, words : ' O, mother! I am so glad you have come out, for I am sure I never can get this lire to burn ; bnt I thiuk I can set the table." Tlie fire was soon made, and my friend returned to tbe sitting-room. Aa she came In, she said : "Now, Mrs. Carpenter, 7 auppose you have been saying to yourself, 'If I had a laughter, she would do lu'tter than thai,' and I have no doubt she would ; hut, living as we do, I don't know how I could teuoh ber to work. I have al ways kept a hired girl, ami my daughter has always been In school." Just here the door opened, and lite daughter put in her head and said : "Do tell me, for merey's sefte, how you manage to cut bread iu slices; it breaks all to pieces." "Well, break it in pieces, then; I can not come out again," answered the tired mother. Alter a time the door opened again, aud she came in, exclaiming, "Well, the job is done at last ; but I have had a dreadful lime of it. I have got bread ami butter, cookies ami sauce, and tea ou tlie table. Is that all 7" "You may go down cellar ami get some canned lobster," said ber mother, telling her just where it stood. She so' ii returned, saying, "There is no such tiling dnuu there; I have looked everywhere, and I can't find It." "Well, then, I suppose I unlet go down and get it," said the poor woni-ui; "but I don't feel as though I coulil gel there. I know it is there, bereute I saw it yesterday." 'Lel me go," interposed the husband; "if there Is any such thing there, I can find it." Hut who ever knew a man to find anything ? He soon came buck empty- handed, saying there was no such thing In the cellar, tso the woman went Her self at last, ami binughl back Immedi ately what they had been hmking for. They lioth declared she had it hid some where, but she insisted it stood iu plain sight. And so the meal was ready at last, aud we sat down to eat it; but I could not help thinking what a wife that girl woulil make, fehe was smart ami capa ble, aud well educated, but entirely ig norant of those things which a wife and houekeeier should have a thorough knowledge ot.

(I he will soon begin to think there is a screw loose somewhere. Now. is it right for mothers to allow their daughters to marry until they are lilted for the duties of a wife and mother? It Is not only wronging the daughter, but the man who marries her.

They have a fiotek perception of right and wrong, and. without always Ktiowing whv. read the present and future, read 1 characters anil acts, iiesigns ami proba bilities, where man sees no letter or slim. What else do we mean by the adage "mother wit," save that woman j has a quicker perceptlou ami reamer in vention than man? How often, when roan abandons the helm In despair, woman selies It ami steers the ship through the storm! Man oflelt flies from home and family toavoid impend ing poverty or rulu. Woman seldom, if ver, forsook home thus. The proud banker, rather than live to see his prop erty gazetted, may blow out his brains anil leave his wife and children to want, protectorlees. Loviug vutuan would have counseled him to accept poverty and live to cherish his family and re trieve his fortune. Woman should be cousulled and confided in. It Is the beauty and glory of her nature that It instinctively grasps at and clings to truth and right. Woman feels where man thinks, acts where he deliberates, hopes where he despairs, and triumphs where he fills. You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer aud forge yourself oue.

Judaism Tbe Jewish OccitU U says that Judaism iu this country, to a large extent, is a sham and a pretenee, or, to come nearer to the truth, there existn Imt a mere shadow of the former giant, such as has been photographed In this country rrom old Europe, giving out lines ami leatures, but losing the soul and expression of the godly-imagined original. Our people here are mer chants, traders, professionals ami money-makers. For appearance' sake they keep a sort of religion, ami dub It Juda ism. It eonai-'ts either of some glitter ing phrases of Freethinkers and modi fied Atheists, or a lot of useless, mean ingless, thoughtless ceremonials, and between these a three days' annual worship and piety making; trade and bargain with the Lord. Mr. Dr. Lozier has written a letter to tbe New York Herald concerning the burning of garbage, in which she says; "If families would burn all their garb age, the diseases of children would be cured or avoided much easier.

Hyacinths are sometimes grown in a very novel and ornamental manner in the body of a carrot or turuip hollowed out and filled with water.
