His wife, a willful, pretty creature, seem ed to be his one weak point Nor was she slow to avail herself of the ; advantage ; her influence over him was unbounded, and even in cases where it was against his better judg ment he invariably yielded to her wishes. The present object of these last-named was a garnet silk dress pattern, which Bhe had seen at C 'fi fashionable store ; and poor Fal coner's ears were still ringing with the minute description of its incom parable loveliness. "It seems so cruel to deny her what she has set her heart on," he said, laying down his pen, and ris ing, he took one or two turns across the room. The result of his reflec tion was. that he put on his hat, went straight to C V, ordered the silk, and had it charged to his ac count. Who would hesitate to credit Fal coner & Frost? There was not a safer copartnership anywhere. The salesman blandly inquired, "Any thing else, eh ?" wrote the addres, and promised that the parcel should le sent home "in an hour's time." Then the purchaser walked slowly down to his business, not altogether satisfied with what he had done. "Oh, Edward, you darling !" were the words that greeted him when he went home that evening, and throw ing her arms around his neck, his wife literally overwhelmed him with kisses. "Oh, you dear love ! how clever it was of you to feign the old Shylock, and then give tne such a delightful surprise !" "It was really a delightful sur prise, Mignon ?" putting both hands upon her shoulders, and gazing fondly into the fair, joyous face. "I am amplv rewarded for my trou ble." "Wait until you see me in my new dress, and then you'll be re warded in earnest." "Well, supjwse you let me have some tea now." "Certainly, as much as you want'' Throughout the meal Lou was gay and garrulous, and afterwards went to the piano and 6ang to her hus band till bed-time. "I can't make up this handsome dress myself," soliloquized Mrs. Fal coner, as she examined her treasure next day ; "I am sure that Edward would rather pay the dress-maker's bill than have me spoil it So she forthwith took it to a fashionable modiste and was fitted. When 6he reached home she found a letter from her mother in New York, Baying that she would be with them by the following Tuesdav, and immediately set about preparing a room for her reception. "Dear, me," she said, "I must have some new muslin curtains ; I should be ashamed for mamma to see these, all darned as they are. Edward must be an angel again, and give me some." "Sweetest, dearest, and best of men ! she said to him at dinner. "I am in a worse fix than was the Princess Gracioss : wont you be Tercient, and come to my assist ance ?" "What is it you want now ?'' ask ed Falconer, beginning to get nerv ous. "Oh, love, my muslin curtains are so ragged as to disgrace the bouse, and mamma is coming to visit me next week ; she is always so partic ular about appearances, and I want to get some fresh ones to put up in her room." "Is it absolutely necassary to have muslin curtains, Lou ? Wouldn't dimity do just as well ? I'm sure you must have a spare set" "Oh, but mamma is accustomed to muslin curtains, and I know that she won't feel at home with any oth er kind. There, now, be a good darling, and let me get them." "I hate to refuse you, Lou, but "Oh, you've turned into monster again, you Charon ! I maynt even welcome my own mother, and make her comfortable in our home." "You can welcome your mother and make her very comfortable with out the aid of muslin curtains," said Falconer, decidedly. "Savage !" cried Lou, beginning to pout "This is unreasonable and child ' ish !" exclaimed her husband, impa tiently pushing back his hair. He had some perplexing business on his mind and was in no mood for trifling. Iiut Lou burst into tears. "Hang it all !" cried Edward, and taking his hat lie left the house. He had not gone two squares, however, before his resolution failed him, and hurrying to the nearest bank, he hastily drew a check and returned home with the money, lie found his wife in her own room, with their little Eddie on her lap, the traces of tears were fresh on her face, and she was singing to the baby in a low voice. "Forgive me, inv precious, for having been so crabbed just now, pleaded Falconer in a penitent tone, as he bent oyer and kissed her, at the same time placing the money in her hand. "Will this be sufficient for what you want?"

Too much occupied with her own selfish little aims, she did not notice that her husbands manner was often strangely flurried ; there was a reck lessness in his very tenderness ; he refused her nothing that she asked for, and the little lady availed her self to the very utmost of his propi tious disposition.. . "Oh, Edward," she said to him one dav, as they sat together over their desert, "the charity ball conies off next Wednesday, and I have been made one of the lady patron esses. I must have a pretty dress for the occasion. "Order what you will," laconically, as he rose and he said, left the table. The evening of the ball Lou was disappointed that her husband did not come home in time to see her dressed, but she could not keep her party waiting, and was obliged to go off without seeing him. Half an hour later Falconer came home. He inquired of the house maid, who had been aroused from a nap by the violent jerking of the parlor bell, if her mH.rss had gone out ; and sleepy as tlio girl was, she was startled as she afterwards aver rpd at "the look of his face" as he dismissed her. He went to her own room where little Eddie lay asleep, but turned abruptly from the peaceful picture. The heavy ice of despair lay on his heart 1' alconer and r rost had lau ed. and he was a defaulter to the amount of more thousands than he could ever hope to repay ; his good fortune was gone ; nothing out beg gary and ruin lay before him, and the disgrace would be reflected on his wife and child. He passed to his dressing room, turned the key on the inside, and ten minutes later the neighbors were startled by the report of a pistol. They forced the door, and found that to the name of "bankrupt" and "swindler," which had been applied to him as soon as the failure was made public, he had added that of suicide. They were fearful tidings that reached his wife's ear in the midst of the festivities, and hurried her home ; and vainly might she, in frantic accents cail on that lifeless form "only to speak to her once more" and she would be content to "live on dry crusts, in a hoyel for the rest of.her days." Then she would call herself "his murderess," and wringing her hands inces8antlv, cried : "J list too far, too far P Vain, vain lament! Keeping Apples. It is well, perhaps, to touch upon this subject, a3 the time is approach ing when we must prepare room to store winter apples. In this, as in most everything else, people differ as to the best methods of keeping apples through the winter as well as into spring. In fact, they are fre quently kept until June, w ith the flavor very little impaired. Of course the utmost care must be ta ken ingathering from the trees, then sortting them and putting them lightly into dry flour casks. The barrel should be heaped somewhat, and the heading pressed down firmly, being careful not to bruise them. These casks should be left under a dry, open shed until as far in No vember as the frosts will admit of. Light freezing weather will not harm the fruit ; in fact, it is only when there is danger of freezing that it should be removed. The barrels should then be taken into a Artless room, where there will be no danger of freezing, or, which we would much prefer, a cold, dry cellar. When carefully disposed of in this way, there is little risk of apples be coming unsound throughout the winter and spring, provided they are of a fair keeping variety, such as Smith's Cider, the Carthouse, the Baldwin, the Rhode Island Green ing, the Spitzenberger, the Northern Spy, fcc. It must be remembered, however, that a barrel, say of Baldwins, from one tree and one locality will not perhaps keep as well as a barrel from some other. It may be from some peculiarity of the soil, though perhaps as likely to le from some constitunial defect in the tree. One thing is well ascertained that fruit from an old and worn out tree will not keep as well as fruit of the same variety of which there may be a moderate quantity on the tree. It seems, therefore, that a fine, large, healthy-looking fruit of any kind should have the preference as long keepers. If these precautions are taken tb apple is not hard to keep, ilu-t people fail from keeping them ten warm. (jcrmardown Tckgravli. Mid Him Good. Mr. Charles II. Bauer, editor of the Xew York Union and Notary Public in a late issue mentions the following: Patrick Kenny, Esq., some time ago, sunered much from rheumatism and tried almost every means to rid himself of this painful evil, but in vain. He was advised to use St Jacobs Oil, which he did so successfully, that all pain has left him and he is as healthy and strong as ever before, Mr. Kinney is an enthusiastic advocate of St Jacobs Oil, and it has done him good. set. The liver rose, and it is said j 5UU lives have been lost in the neigh- take Peruna, ' " voklQ$t. There is, doubtless, no domestic need so urgent at the present writ ing as the need of good cooks. The ordinary servant girl knows nothing of the chemistry of cooking and cares nothing for it, and the remark is true of a great many women who do their own work. Multitudes of housekeepers need to learn that there must bo rnoie in what we eat than something to allay the pangs of hunger. It is one thing to eat, it is quite another to be led. The experience of a gentleman related not long ago to us is common ex nerience 1 "Mv wife goes to market and select the best of everything and has it sent home, and when it comes to the t iblc it is not fit to eat, spoiled in tUe cooking." If that ladv had the s'rength to cook for her family the:.- would be no lack of relish and pericction in the food brought on her table, but she, like manv others, must depend on the labor of others. The science of cooking is an exact science, as exact as chemistry or mathematics or music or astrono mv. It n --mures lone and careful trainins. delicate manipulation. quickness of sense, correctness of taste, soundness of judgement and ripe experience. How many of these qualities onecan expect to find the foreign importations of servants, our readers very well know. How many of them are found let the mul- j titudes of housekeepers who have trained one "greenhorn" after anoth er for the last thirty years testify. It is not to be expected that the class of emigrants who come to us for work should know much about cooking. And as we are to a great extent dependent on them for do mestic help, they must learn to cook, if at all, after they come to this country, and they will and do learn at our expense. If the expense were only that of money, it would be comparatively trifling, but it is of comfort, of health, often of life itself of that whicli once lost can not be regained. The simple and easy solution of the whole question lies in the establish ment and multiplication of cooking schools. Before we shall have these in numbers, the minds of our women must be awakened th the vi tal necessity of concerted movement in this matter. It is a difficult thine to obtain graduates from Nor mal schools to till the positions of teachers : we have graduates from art schools, classical schools, schools of desmn. of telegraphy, commercial schools rvem kind of school but those of cooking, housekeeping sew ing : and do we not need these even more than we need some of the oth ers ? We have begun in social life with the most far-awav needs, and now we begin to approach those nearer ai.d nearest Astrology was the first so-called science, and in studying this, astronomy was born. The science of chemistry had its origin in thesearch for philosopher's stone, w Inch would transmute every thing it touched into cold. We have now the most beautiful china and silver services to eat from. Is it not quite time that the food serv ed in these dishes should le as fine in quality, as high in art, as exqui site in preparation, as faultless in taste, as the dishes thamselves ? We want schools of plain cooking and schools of art cooking, with regular courses and a diploma at the end of the last course, lhese possessing a diploma would not lack for imme diate and remunerative situations. If several laaies in any city or village would unite in fitting up a kitchen, and hiring a chef, and send ing their their own servants or chil dren as pupils, the movement might be begun. Thev could contract with their servants to remain with them at a certain price for a certain time in consideration of the tuition received at thecooking school. Many housekeejwrs would be glad to be pupils and have their children pu pils also. When servant girls are made to realize that certain employ ment and increase pay are sure to those who have been through a course of culinary instruction, they will be eager to avail themselves of it. Until that time, and without the co-operation of their employers, they will take as little ieterest in the subject as possible. When Mr. Blot gave lessons in cookery some years ago, a Brooklyn gentlemas sent his cook to take course, paying her tui tion, which was $30. lie siid that in the next years she saved him that S'JO a dozen times over. She learn ed to economize everything, to make savory dishes frem plain materials, to cook in the best and easiest man ner, and to get up her dinners in style and taste without waste of ma terial and without great expense. Here is a work in w hich the fields are white for the harvest. Miss Corson in New York and Miss Par lao in Boston are pioneers in the work, and are doing an immense amount of good. Their example should be followed in every city and large town, till cooking schools, arc as common as district schools, till the woman who cannot cook will be as uncommon as the woman who cannot read and write and spelL We have abolished slaver', we are trying to abolish intemperance, cru elty to animals; let us abolish bad cooking and inaugurate the reign of wholesome perpared food. Thus shall we effectively pave the way for the long expected millennium. The Orlftin of Newspapers. i An ingenuous physician of Paris i Renaudot by name more than two hundred years ago, hit upon a ' good idea for "cutting out" his more learned brethren, which he was not long in putting in execu tion to his own no small advantage and the great chagrin of his brother professionals. His plan was a very simple one, for he obtained his pop ularity by a very innocent experi ment of collecting information and then circulating news 6heets among the patients, lor their special delec ctation and amusement , But inas much as the seasons were not al ways sickly, and he found he had plenty of time on his hands, he was encouraged by his success to devote his attention more exclusively to the business of journalism, by pro viding the public at large with news ; and accordingly, in he suc ceeded in obtaining for himself and family 6ole!y the privilege of pub lishing a newspaper called the Ga zette de Franre.

"Two babies have come through this office, one from Chicago for New York, and the other from Washington to this city.

Isoath of a Tyrant. As Robespierre was taken to the guillotine, throngs crowded about the cart to see the fallen tyrant, and the gendarmes pointed him out with their swords, lie was pursued by the howling mob, who had formerly yelied as fiercely at his victims, and now charged him with the blood of them all. Troops of women who had danced at the death of those that he had sent to the scaffold, now danced the Carmagnole round the car as it paused before the house of Duplaiz, where he had lived. A woman. breaking from the close to him and ex- crowd, rushed claimed : "Murderer of my kindred, your agony fills me with transport! De scend to perdition, pursued by the curses of ever mother in France !" When they reached the place of execution, Kobespierre was first 6hown to .the people and then laid down on the scaffold with the bloody und nearly dead bodies of his brother and Henriot The batch consisted of twenty one, and Robespierre was executed last of all. When he was raised up to te led to the guillotine he presented a most ghastly figure, his sky-blue coat covered with blood and dirt, his stocking slipped down about his heels, his face lived as death, and tied up in a bandage. The execu tioner plucked the bandage away and let the lower jaw fall. He gave a dreadlul yell, which struck every heart with horror, and the next mo ment was put under the axe. Sam- som held up the hideous head to the people, who shouted with delight, and then went away singing. One poor man, as he gazed at that head, said "Robespirre, you said true there is a God !" The Difference. From actual experiments made it is demonstrated beyond a doubt the grinding of grain adds one third to its value for feeding purposes. This is jimatter ofa good deal of im portance to the agricultural commu nity, and, in fact, to all classes who have animals to feed. As faras dol lars are concerned, perhaps it is not of so much moment in the North west where grain is so cheap and so plenty, as it is in other proportions oi me country, wnere less grain js raised, but it is worthy of the con sideration of those who have not full bins of oats and corn.

Joe Smith's mother moved in the lowest walks of life, but she had a kind of men tal power, which her son shared. With them both th- iir-igination was the commandite . ituiiy. That was vain but vivid. To it was sub sidized reason, conscience, truth. lioth mother and son were noted for a habit ofextravagant assertion. They would look a listener full in the eye, and without confusion or blushing, would fluently impro vise startling statements and exciting stories. The warp and woof of which were alike sheer falsehood. Were an inconsistency alluded to, nothing daunted, a subterfuge was always at hand. As one old man, who remembered them well, said to me, "You couldn't face them down. They'd lie and stick to it." Manv of the noblest specimens of humanity have arisen from a condi tion of nonest poverty ; but few of these from one of dishonest poverty. Solomon apprehended the danger when he said, "lest I bo poor and steal." M rs. Smith used to go to the houses of the village and do family washings. But if the arti cles were left to dry upon the lines and not secured dy their owners be fore midnight, the washer was often the winner and in these nocturnal depredations she was assisted by her boys, who in like manner visited poultry yards and grain bins. Her son Joe never worked save at chopping bees and raisings, and then whisky was the impetus and the reward. The mother of the high priest of Mormonism was superstitious to the last degree. The very air she breathed was inhabited by familiar spirits that peeped and wizards that muttered. " bhe turned many a jcnny by tracing in the open palm the fortunes of the inquirer. All ominous signs were heeded. The moon over the lelt shoulder pro tended calamity : the breaking of a mirror, death. Even in the old Green Mountain State, before the family immigrated to the Genesee Country, the then West, Mrs. Smith's mind was made up that one of her sons should be a prophet The weak father agreed with her that Joseph was the "genius" of their nine children. So it was established that Joseph should be the prophet, To such an extent did the mother impress this idea upon the boy that all the instincts of childhood were restrained. He rarely smiled or laughed. "His looks were always downward prone." He never in dulged in demonstrations of fun, since they would not be m keeping with the profound dignity of his al lotted vocation. Jlis mother mspir ed and aided him in every scheme of duplicity and cunning. All ac quainted with the facts agree . in saying that the evil spirit of Mor monism dwelt first in Joe Smith's mother. Bad books had much to do with the origin of Mormonism. Joe Smith could read. He could not write. His two standard vol umes were "The Life of Stephen Burroughs," the clerical scoundrel, and the autobiography of Capt Kid-1, the- pirate. Ihe latter work was energy and often pursued.

"And we will be married in the fall, my sweet" "Yes, Oscar, in the rich, hazy, sensuous davs of Indian summer, when the farmer's boy, seeking the lost cow is heard as he sits on the vine-embowered stile and blas phemes until the fire-flv leaves for a cool spot You must take all my money, Oscar ; it must be yours to do as you will with it.

' Mr. Harbour din said that he had ' brought up a wolf that was now G years old, and as centle as a lamb. It,was besides remarkably intelligent, and could open the doors by turning the han dles, when it hears a clock strike it would stand on its hind legs to look behind, and would move its hands around with its p&ws. It is fond of perfumes, and lives on good terms with the poultry, - and other animals, but has a great aversion to cats. Its back resembles that of a dog. M. de Mortillet, on the other hand, said that he had been endeav oring in vain to tame wolves. They were gentle enough . so long as they were young, but became savage at the adult age. The Trouble The trouble with most persons who keep horses, no matter on farm for farm work or for driving pur posec. is they feed too much nay ; and to this can be attributed the sluggishness often manifested by the horse until they have been wurking a couple hours, while their wind is also much impaired. Night is the only time then hay should be fed, especially to animals used to quick work ; even theslow plow team should have but . little hay at the morning and noon feeds, i but tPve them a generous suyply at the even ing n)eal.
