"The impudence of it!" Bid ojd lira. Dennieon, booing beraelf rig orouslj. "Abigail ! I m surprised t yon I How can joa sit tbere as calm aa if that man had onlj asked for a glass of milk!" 'Bat,'grndma,Haaid Abigail, in the low musical voice habitual to her, "I do not think he meant to of fend you." "What did he mean then, I should like to know f You are city bred ; fray tell aa ignorant old country wo man if it Is customary for gentlemen to walk into strangers' houses and offer to buy their tables aad chairs ?" "Not exactly that, grandma; but just now ererybody is crsry about old furniture, and it n aougni at a fabulous price wherever it can be fouud. I suppose this gentleman " "He is a puppy, not a gentleman!" "This puppy." then," said Abbie, with the faintest gleam of fun in her brown eyes, "has heard of jour hav ing furniture here more than a centu ry old, may bare beard, too, that we are not wealthy " i "Say it out ! That we are wretch- j edly poor I" "Yes and he might think the prices now paid for sach furniture as is here, would gire you many comforts." "There! there! say no more. I am a miserable old idiot! But, Abi gail, child, every Btick of this furni ture was brought by my grandfather from England. It is as dear to me as the old house itself. That old cabinet that the young monkey es pecially desired to purchace was brought from India by my uncle when I was a little child, lie bad been years in India, and wo suppos ed him a wealthy man, but he came home old, feeble, almost childish, liv ed less than a year, and left nothing bat his wardrobe and that old cabi net, which he gave to me. Having heard the same story many times before, Abble may be forgiven if her attention wandered a little, and she thought wistfully of the good that mijrbt be done with the money offered for the cabinet, a 'goto of Indian work. She was a genile, dark-eyed girl of twenty-two, a teacher in a school in New York, and spending her summer vacation with ber grandmother in the ances tral home on the Hudson. Tiie house was very large, very old, yet very comfortable, being sub stantially built and well furnished. For many long years all the upper rooms had been closed, and Mrs. Dennison, her daughter and one ser vant occupied the first and second floors, living upon a very narrow in come, that would be still smaller. For the daughter, a widow, drew an annuity from ber husband's estate, that ceased when she died, the win ter before the opening of this sto- It seemed to Abigail Dennison that her duty called her to remain with her aged grandmother, ber only one, too, and yet, if she gave up ber teacher's position and salary, what were they to live on? It was a hard problem to solve. Mrs. Dennison was nearly ninety years of age, and in those upper rooms Abbie thought there was what would bring money enough to make ber last years com fortable. Yet, when she gently bin' ed as much large tears rolled down the old lady's cheeks. Let the things stay till I'm dead, Abigail," she said. "You will have the house and all is in it. It will be yours to sell or keep, and I will not make any condition with you, but let it stav now as it has been all my life." "l will never speak of it again," Abbie said quietly. "I am sorry I was sot here this morning to spare you the annoyance of seeing your would-be-customer. What did he look like?" "He looked well enough, tall and with a frank, pleasant face. His card is somewhere about here tbere on the centre table." What made Abbie a face flush rosy-red, her eyes soften to tenderness, ber lips quiver in the sweetness of miles, as she looked at tho slip of pasteboard f "Do yon know lim ?" Mrs. Den nison asked. "I have met him at Aunt Josie's." Mrs. Dennison sniffed. Aunt Jo sis was ber favorite aversion, a sis of Abigail's mother and a fashionable woman of society. "Tour Aunt JeBie had better let yon alone filling your head with frivolity. I suppose this is some dandy then" "Oh, no, grandma. Dr. Barclay is any thing but a dandy. lie is young and likes society, but he is de voted to his profession and everybody speaks well of him." "H'myes ! Terhaps, Abigail, you had better go down to the village with the tidies you knit for Mrs. Eeata. You look warm in this close room, and I dare not have the win dows open, my rheumatism is so bad." So Abigail accepted her dismissal, wondering bow much her face had betrayed. It had been a surprise to read Dr. Stephen Barclay's name up on the card her grandmother's visit or had left, and she was conscious of some change in ber face. And vet she had no confession to make. Dr. Barclay loved her and bad won her love, but their united incomes were insufficient to keep the wolf from the door, and Annt Josie had positively forbidden an engagement. Yet as Abbie walked slowly in the July sun down to the village it did seems a little bard that she could not have seen Stephen, even for a moment There was a suspicious dew in her eyes, when she beard a firm quick step behind her, and a mo ment later a well-known, well-loved voice said : "I heped youwould come out, darling 1" Oh, Steve," she said, reproachfully, "why did you comeT" "For various and sundry reasons. But will you not say you are glad to see me 7" "lea," she answered, cordially, and frankly, "I must be glad to see you." "And will vou try to make my peace with the old lady 7 I shall be at K for a month's vacation, ana 1 must see vou. Let me exDlain. Your Annt Josie told my my sister you anow uarriette r" "I have met her." "Well yon probably found out that all the new manias have her for A - votary. so just sow ane is crazy ior oia lurniture. lour aunt told her of the treasures in your grand. motner's Loose, and Uarriette let me have bo peace until I promised to secure ner a tew bits. When I beard it was your grandmother who was toe fortunate posessor, know ing yon were here, I did not require muoa farther urging. Bat," this rather ruefully "I made a mesa of t the first thing." "I am afraid yon offended grand ma," said Abbie frankly; "but I will tell her bow it all happied and," with a smile full of mischief, "she is always ready to make Aunt Josie a scapegoat" Then they chatted together of themselves, of that future together that seemed ao remote, but which tbev still hoped might open its gates for them. Tbey were hsppy in spite of the clouded prospect, aad Abbie'e tidies being left at the store, tbey re turned slowly toward the house, where Mrs. Dennison was wonder ing what could detain Abigail so long. It was not a difficult matter to win forgiveness for Stephen's involun tary offense,, and his frank, unaffect ed manners, his gentle courtesy and deference for age and sex, made a nleasAnt impression noon ber. lie returned to the "Spread Eagle," the village hotel, quite sure or bis wel come, during his sojourn there, at Mrs. Dennisou's. Day was dawning the next morn ing when a messenger awakened him and handed in a note. "Dear Stephen : Grandma has been taken suddenly ill. Can you come to her? Abbie." Ilarrvine to obey the summons, he found Mrs. Dennison dangerously ill. Every day for more than a week, he gave his professional skill, carelui attention, constant watchfullness, but was powerless to stay tbe advance oi death in the aged frame. One morn ing she asked to see him alone. Ab bie went into another room. Dr. Barclay," the old lady said, "I am dying. Will you answer me a few questions frankly ?" "I will," he said gently ana grave ly- "lou love Abigail!'' "With all my heart!" "And you are a poor man !" "I have a small income and my profession." If von bad a nouse auaea couia you live ?" " ith economy." "My death will W'- Abigail her own mistress, and im bouse, witn all it contains with also tbe land adjoining will be bers. There is a chance of a medical man here, as there is no resident physician in the village. Will you taie the risk and marry Abigail to-day ?" "Gladlyl" . "If. after I am dead, you need ready money, they tell me the furni ture will sell welL It is all Abigail's, remember, to keep or sell, as she will!" It caused an effort when she was dying to 6ay this ; and Dr. Barilay appreciating this said. "We will try to keep it!" "Now, call Abigail." It was necesBariallv a very quiet, solemn, wedding, and three dajs lat er. Mrs Dennison died blessing her children for their tender care of her. But after the funeral was over, and some thought must be given to the future, Dr. and Mrs. Barclay, count ed op their available funds, found tbev amounted to a most miserable sum. "Until I get into practice, Abbie," Stephen said, "it looks like slow star vation." "We will sell some of the furni ture. And by the way, grandma said vou were anxious to have the old Indian cabinet?" "Uarriette would cive .two hun dred dollars for it!" "Why that would be wealth 1" cried Abbie. "Suppose we send it off? But first we must empty it." And as they pulled out the drawers, Abbie told Stephen tbe old storv of the old Indian merchant who had so disappointed his heirs. "11 is mind was enfeebled," she said, "and he was probably robbed, for there was proof that he made vast sum of money." In tbe drawers of the cabinet tbey found shells, quaint little articles of bygone day, some of Mrs. Dennison's treasures, and when it was finally empty. Abbie holding a narrow drawer in her hand, said : "I hate te part with it I I cannot imagine how that corner will look ltbout See Steve, what a funny drawer this is, as shallow as a tray, and yet so deep in the space for it." "It has a false bottom!" cried Stephen in some excitement "Tbere must be a spring in some of that motber-of-pearl work." But if there was, it was too secure ly hidden for them to find it "Let me take out the back." cried Stephen, "It will not hurt the draw er. and there is certainly a false bot tom." II e pried the back off with his knife, and as he expected found a sec ond drawer under the first, which, to his surprise drew out easily. Abbie gave one cry, a gasp, and closed her dazzling eyes. .For there, in small nests of black velvet, lay great drops of luminous beauty, rainbow tinted, brilliant beauties. "Diamonds!" cried Stephen "Cot but not Bet Abbie, we are rich ! My darling these are a fortune worth thousands of dollars. Your ancestor brought home bis great wealth for us.-' And Stephen was right. Tbe dia monds were of great valae. and their price, judiciously invested, made Abbie a rich woo an, for Stephen bad every dollar settled upon her. There was a splendid house bought in New York, and Aunt Josie's heart was appeased for Abbie'a foolish marriage; but in the summer the Barclays go to the house on the Hudson, where fashionable vici" rs declare their envy of the glory tu beauty of Abbie's old furniture. Unei I'm! mm Grass. rowis cannot get a;ong well on grain food alone, and must, in both winter and summer the latter espec lauy be supplied witn some green succulent food, or they will, ere long, become diseased or sickly, when the matter of profit will be very problem auc inaeea. jcany a time nave we seen persons pay snug little sums for a small nock of fine Howls, put them into neat houses and yards, give them plenty of corn, wbeat, oats, etc., wat ering them regularly, but never al lowing them a bite of grass or other green food. Tbe place must be small, indeed, which cannot afford enongb grass for a flock of fowls. If sods cannot be obtained, cut a bunch of fine young grass every morning for them, and they will show you how badly tbey need it by eating it up witn evident reiisn. The labor neces sary to supply them with this is not very great, and should be a pleasure rather than a task, while the benefits which the fowls derive therefrom are very great indeed. If yon do not care to give yoar fcwla their green food in the shape of grass, supply them with a head of cabbage each day. Tie it up by tbe roots to some convenient place, and the fowls will soon pick every piece off clean. This is also the way to aupDlv them with their green winter food. 5?"SubBcribe for the Herald. iet" umi nii ibw TOIK. By Our Special correspondent. New Yobk, August 17, 1373. "fire! fire!!" No longer is thLs cry heard in our midst, and rarely has your correspon dent found a more interesting subject than the management of our Fire Brigades, by which the boisterous alarms of other days are made unne cessary, oo lascmaiiDg was me eio- ry to me that 1 cannot retrain trora sbowiojr my three hundred thousand readers through one of tbe engine houses near ny city home, and asking their verdict upon the virtues of our brave fire-ladmes. Come in fc d look through tne house," coorleuUhly said one of the lithe, supple fellows who work Steam er No. . A right manly looking crew tbey were ; finely built men, all muscle, and having that elastic tread which delights a lover of masculine physique. In front of the broad open doors stands tne steamer, tne water hot in her boiler by connection with a boiler in tbe cellar, and her own fires ready for tbe match. The hot water connection is instantly severed and tbe match applied the moment she leaves tbe house. In the rear corner stands tbe single-horse hose cart, with its 6hafu in the air high enough for its horse to run under. Back of the bouse is a little paved court-yard, and then the stable, con taining three noble horses, each of whom knows bis name and bis place vastly better than some bipeds. "Shall we let tbe corses out ask ed the fireman ; and then disposing my boys bo they should not get rcn over, be closed all the doors, and stepping to tbe alarm-gong, gave one pull at the chain. Open flew every door, and through them DASHED THREE HOUSES at a tearing gait. One rushed to one side of the Steamer, his mate to tbe other ; both swung themselves in against tbe pole and stood impatient ly shaking their eager heads while the men "snapped" a trace fast here, a book there, and the Steamer was readv for action. The other horse darted quickly under the shafts of the bose-cart, which drooped, and with two or three "snaps" he was ready. Every fireman has his own special part to play whenever the gong strikes, and by this minute subdivis ion of labor tbey accomplish the won derful feat of dropping their ordinary avocations about the house, reading, smoking, napping, etc., hitching up their horses, cutting off the hot water connection with the boiler down stairs, starting the fire and landing a steam fire engine, a hose-cart and twelve equipped firemen on the street, ready for a run, 15 NINE SECONDS from the first tap of the bell ! Tbey harness ana prepare for work every time the alarm commences to strike, ready, if it proves to be io. their dis trict, to apply tbe match and dasn away at a gallop to the scene of con flagration. If the alarm strikes some number not in tLrVir district they un hitch and take the horses back. Min utes, and even seconds, are of so much value in fighting fire that every time an alarm is struck in any part of this Island, thirteen miles long, every company prepares for action ; over three hundred borses dasn alone and undirected out of their stalls and are hitched up, and nearly eight hundred men stand on tbe alert for the final taps of the alarm which tell in whose district the fire is located. Jn such a city every man and horse is thus called to his post many times every day and night Tbe horses are trained so that at the tap of tbe gong in the stable (tbe striking of which loosens every halter-chain), the horse nearest the door backs out of his stall first, the next follows, and the inmost horse after his next neigh bor. Neither of tbe latter horses will, nnder any circumstances, pass his leader, and if he gets fast from any cause, bis followers CIRCLE ROUND AND ROUND till the obstruction is removed. The horses are great noble creatures, tbe very best, most valuable and most in telligent of tbeir kind, who quite make you hope there is a heaven where good horses may go. The gong arrangements are a curi osity. . All alarms are telegraphed by the policemen in whose district the fire breaks out to I olice Headquar ters, and thence are instantly repeat ed over all the "circuits" in the city. With tbe first tap of the gong a little brass weight banging on the hammer is detached and falls the length of its chain. The smart jerk caused by its reaching the end of its chain, starts a lever which throws open every door of stable and engine house, strikes the horses' gong, and loosens tbeir halters. It also stops a clock on the instant, bo that when the company return after the firo tbey can note the exact moment the alarm was receiv ed, and make an entry thereof in the records. In this house one of tbe firemen has a little dog to whom be says : . "Let out the horses !" and he runs to the gong, seizes with his teeth a rubber ring attached to the above weight, pulls it down and then rush ing to tbe stable barks at the horses' heels to hurry them up. The entire company sleep on the second floor, on neat iron bedsteads The room is airy and comfortable and it is kept with scrupulous neat ness. When a fireman retires he takes off. BOOTS AND TROUSERS TOO ETHER, folding each trouser's-leg outside its own boot These he stands at tbe bedside. A man remains on watch below all night, and on receiving an alarm strikes a gong in the dormito ry. Instantly eleven men sit on the edge of their respective beds, plunge feet into boots (which operation it will be seen puts him inside his pants also), and then pulling up his unmen tionables and fastening them about his waist as be runs, he goes down the stairs in two jumps, seizes bat and coat from a peg by tbe door, and does all that in but three sec onds longer than is required for a day alarm. Who shall say that such an exact ing life and such qualifications, phy sical and mental, should not be well remunerated ? And tbey are, com paratively speaking. True, scarcely a montn passed during tbe whole winter but that some fireman, bravely fighting his smoky foe, was killed or maimed. -' They handle fires with marvelous skill and a bravery that amounts of ten to recklessness, and when a man puts his life and limb, and his wife and children's whole earthly hope against property, property can afford to pay and ougnt to pay for it The men get abont $100 a month, officers a slight advance, and this is little enough for the character of service they renIer and the risks they en counter, a movement was made last winter towards the reduction of their salaries. It was shameless demagognery, which was fortunately fruitless. The city pays thousands of dissipa ted, worthless fellows who can han dle primaries and are incapable of doing a courageous aad manly deed, larger salaries by far than these men get who brave tbe fiery element and the tottering wall by night and by day ; who plunge every month into some burning death trap to reecae human beings from the flames ; who do hard, honest, manly, dangerous work the year round. "Economy" is good, "Retrench ment" ii first-rate ; but he, who would not advertise himself a demagogue will, before cutting down the well earned salaries of oar Fire Brigades, make a crusade at the half earned and unearned emoluments of tbe po litical pet and the ward bummers. Till that is done the insincerity of bis "retrenchment" cry is plainly known and read of all men, and will bat pull down upou himself tbe contempt of all decent men. But I didn't mean to philosophize with the thermometer trying its best to count a hundred in the shade! MORLET. . . .. . ftcmca mm Blacksmiths. I came here to inquire for myself how mnc it would cost to deliver one hundred tons of coal a mon'.h by the Rowley Colliery Company at two or three given localities within a dis tance of ten miles; and naving satis fied myself on that point, much to my pleasure, I continued my walk from the coal pit up through the fields to Rowley Old Church. I came to a place called liell.bna, wmcn is appar ently a new part of the old village. Through a small window l observed a female bead bobbing up and down; soon I heard the Bond of a hammer, and never having seen any rivet- makiosr done by human hands, I threaded my way through some brick passages until I came to the little smithy where "Alice" was at work. This wa3 tbe name by which her father called her, whom I met on my way. and to whom I am indebted for the following remarkable piece of knowledge. Alice, I mu3t say, was a young wife engaged in blowing tbe bellows, heating pieces of iron in a cleed" forge, and producing rivets from an anvil at tbe rate oi 3,000 a day. ' For this manual labor Alice ner father proceeded to tell me in her presence gets from the warehouse Is. Id. : out of which she has to pay for wear and tear ot topis, Id. ; car riage, Id., and a like sum for gleeds, a kind of small coke made expressly for nail and rivet forges. On Mon day she Ooes her washing ; on Satur day her cleaning up ; so that she on ly "works at" rivets our days in the week, and ner gross earnings, mere fore, amount to 4 s. 3d. for forging 12, 000 rivets. I have said nothing of rent which Alice would pay, and which might amount to Is. a week. She was a se date young woman, well epoken, with very fair bair, and a low, sweet voice. John Price (Alice's father) then, at my reqoeet, took me to see his neigh bors, Edward and rbyins iromans, who lived and worked at making nails close by. Phyllis is a handsome woman, with beautiful white teeth and abundance of flesh, which Ru bens might have painted, it is so plen tiful and rosy. This woman was forging large nails, and the manner in which she made nails with a point and i . . i i tie - a neaa an men ana a nan in circum ference, fly off a piece of hot iron was marvellous to behold. She worked from eight o'clock in the morning un til nine at night, and in four davs will forge fifty-four pounds weight of stout nails, for which sne will receive the wondrous price of 3a. 8d., out of which she has to pay 5d. for gleeds and 2d. for tools. Her husband works as hard as be can drive from six o'clock in the mornino; until 11 at night, and his week's wages amount to 12s., from which lOd. for gleed3 and 4d. for tools will have to be deducted, to Bay nothing of rent Edward Tromans was only forty-three years old, but looked nearer seventy. .Two other young women were hammering away at rivets in company with Phyllis ; and never as long aa I live shall I forget that little blacksmitby. I once travelled many miles to see "Vul can's Forge," by Velasquez; but there was in that famous picture no figure equal to that of Phyllis Tro mans, and I shall remember Phyllis to the day of my death. That such a woman should be slaving in soot blowing bellows, now with her left and then welding a hammer with her right hand forging clout nails for twelve hours a day, in order to earn less than 40d. in a week is a phenom enon that I would never have believ ed as being possible in England, if bad not seen it.

" Paris, Joly 27, 1879. M. deLeseeps, it in well known, is resolved to strive his utmost to crown the edifice of his long and splendidly useful life by carryiag out that Pan ama canal scheme u.t.u, all prac tical intents and purposes, be has made bis own. He candidly told his hearers that, as in the construction of tne Suez canal, he himself would be solely responsible to the public, j He asks for a capital of one hundred millions of francs or four millions sterling, to begin with ; just the sum asked for thirty years ago by the Im perial Pretender temporarily residing in King street, St. James. - The cau tion money of two millions required by the Government of Venezuela for to tho territory of that Republic has the venue of the projected canal been shifted has already been paid ; and M. de Lesseps thinks that tbe to tal cost of making tbe canal will not exceed seven hundred and fifty mill ions of francs and that it can be com pleted in eight years. M. do Lesseps mentioned incidentally in a recant ad dress to the French Geographical So ciety that I'riace Louis Napoleon, during his imprisonment in tbe Fort ress of Ham, had thought much of a Panama canal, and had sent an offi cer devoted to the Bonapartist cause to explore the isthmus. The officer's report being favorable he (the Prince) wrote tbe French Ministry asking to be set at liberty in order that he might devote himself to tbe realiza tion of his fcheme, and promising never to meddle with politics again. No reply was given to bis petition, and he afterwards escaped and went to London with a view to carrying out his project He waB just preparing to start for America, when tbe Revolution of 1848 caused him to alter his inten tions. 1 wo years later tbe prisoner of Ham was Emperor of France, and the "Canal Napoleon de Nicaragua" was relegated to the limbo of the things that might have been. Yes, that might have been. The history ot the Bonaparte family has been a chain of such unexpected, such as tonishing and such incongruous events, that speculation may be per missible in what might have been, historically, had tbe prisoner of 1845- 6, had the exile in Loudon in 1S47, been able to carry out bis project oi a Nicaraguan Canal. Anything and all things may be expected from a family which, from the small begin nings of a petty advocate and a wine-grower's daughter in Corsica, has, in the course of 75 years, allied itself with almost every Imperial bouse in Europe, which bo3 counted among its members two actual and two potential Emperors, Kings and Queens by the halt dozen, and Prin ces and Princesses by the score, who, in three generations, have undergone the most extraordinary vicissitudes this Princess keeping a boarding- school in the United States ; that Prince marrying a milliner; such a Bide branch as the Bonaparte-Pattersons becoming American citizens, wealthy country gentlbmen, or pros perous lawyers in Pennsylvania ; this grand nephew of Napoleon I. wear ing tbe uniform oi a cadet at Wool wich ; that donning the purple of a Priace of the Church. What things might have been had Napoleon HI. become managing director of tne Nicaraguan canal ! Tbe magic of his name might have raised him to the Presidency of a vast federation of Spanish-speaking Republics; or, quite as feasibly, he might have met with Walker's and Lopez's fate the garotcviL The ex-Emperor might bave read at CbiBleborst, in the col umns of a morning paper, that ac cording to the latest intelligence from the Isthmus of Panama, new hopes are entertained of making a ship ca nal across that obstruction. After failing to discover a promising line for excavation in the narrower por tion of the neck U. S. surveyors, un der tbe direction of Admiral Ammen, have gone back to Nicaragua, and now report a feasible place towards the north of the Isthmus. Why did not this paragraph, if he read it, recall the grand scheme of the "Canal Napoleon de Nicaragua" to the exile's mind ? Why did he not think of it in connection with his young son, even then studying en gineering at Woolwich? bad he done bo, the poor Prince Imperial and his friend, Ferdinand de Lesseps, might have journeyed together to tbe iBtb mas ; the Prince might have been, to this moment safe and sound, devot ing his talents and his energies to the conduct of an undertaking which, thirty years before, his father had not deemed beneath his princely rank. It might have been ; bat it was not to be. Fate forbade it ; and "there is no armor against fate." A Tonn Clerk Kadaed." No barber knoweth whom he may shave, and tbe man who rushes into the shop and drops into a barber chair without seeing who occupies the chair to the right or left, may bet badly left, as a case proved yesterday. A solid old citizen in the wholesale trade wa9 taking it easy, his face cov ered with lather, when in came a young man who flung off his coat, bounced up into a chair and called out: "Hurry up, now, for I must get to the store before old Black does, or he will raiso thunder ! Hang him ! he won't even give a man time to die !" ' The solid old citizen turned his face toward the other, and tbe barber no ticed a reddening of his face. "Going to bave a vacation this Summer t" asked the barber who was preparing to shave the young man. "Vacation ! How iu Tophet can I get away from old Black? And if I could he pavs such a stingy, con temptible salary that I couldn't afford even a ride on a ferry boat" "Why don't you ask for a raise ?" queried the barber. "Why don't I ask for the hand of his freckle nosed daughter J He'd dis charge me in a minute, though he's making money and can afford it. If tbe old hyena would have a stroke of apoplexy tbe jonior might do some thing, but such chaps always live to be one hundred years old." . Conversation ceased here, the Bolid old man got oui of his chair, took a brushing and sat down, and when tbe clerk arose from tbe chair and tamed around, snowballs would have looked black beside his face. He tried to bow and speak, but some thing wouldn't let him, and when be started to put on his coat he held it op tails np and collar down. He was still struggling with it when the solid old man rose np, looked around and walked out saying never a word.
