Now, quiok-tempered, good-hearted John Armor felt sorry lor his unguarde speech the moment it passed his lips,aud ashamed of having spoken unkiudiy to his wife before a third person. As lu waa closing the door he heard the first Indignant semence uttered by Mias Blair, and pausing with the door ajar, bent-lit of her further utteranoes. Anger, regret and .

It he toil early and late while -she sits in at home, shall he not dare to speak a word of remonstranoe, though everything goes wioug ? There may be spiritless husbands, who will meekly submit, but John Armor is not one of them i , coming, it seemed, from a upward, sounded a gentle but pleading voioe, and it said : "This is not well, Johu Armor." And at the words a figure grew into distinctness in his mind. He Jenny—his true, aud pure, and luring young wife—sitting with bowed head, *ud aorro.ful f»oo, and wot eye», the picture of Buffering, and all because of ds harßh, unkindly speech. Almost instantly this pioture faded, and a new one grew out of the confused images that remained. The formol Jenny beoame diatinot onoo mere ; but her attl- is tude and oouutenanoe changed. She | stood erect, with a oold, unloving faoe, and looked into his eyes with angry defi , and of not with discomfort in got its bis And distance, far inward ') lc a the same time memory into his thoughts words ; of his these •'A woman moved, la liko a fountain troubled ; Dark, unseemly, thick, bereft ot beauty."

Uncertain, cey, and hard to please ; paiu ami sick A ministering angel thou I' 1 the brow, a And then another page of memory turned, on which a never-to-be-erased picture was painted in strongest outlines and deepest colors—the picture of a sick bed, and a dear, loving, self-denying, patient, ministering angel bending "John Armor," he exolaimed, half aloud, as this pioture held him like the spell of a magician, "you are a wretch to hurt that loving heart l" The acouaer and aelf-justifler—the evil spirit that loved only to work alienation and give pAin to human hearts—passed in again aud tried to obscure the picture, but in vain. John Armor held to hiB better feelings, and repented of his kindness. Still, the words of Miss Blake a power in the hands of the evil spirit, who kept perpetually thrusting them in unguarded moments into the thoughts of John Armor. "John la not my master !" answered Jenny Armor, with a flish in her wet eyes, as she heard her hudband shut the street door with a heavy jar "Of course he is not, and the sooner he is made oousuioud of the fact the better for you both as I have said. No a right to speak to his wife iu the way he spoke to you just tamely he will bi master and There will be a husband aud wife only in name." A hard, half angry expression grew slowly in the faoe of Jenny Armor. She did not within without. She began writing bitter things the tablet of thought against her re pentant husband.

Is the who seeks to make yon a slave a friend enemy ?" "John Armor my enemy.'' A dazed into Jenny's faoe. It d paled by turns , then grew fiery red, while flashes leaped from her eyes. "Nanoy Blairl" Jenny a voice trembled with suppressed feeling. "This has gone far enough." "Oh, jnat w II: -V, kind ot look flushed you please !" answered Miss Blair in a tone meant to annoy. like the rest of them." And she tossed her head with tempt of manner as Bhe felt it safe assume.

Oh, dear Don't I sometimes, that 1 had "Yon much home at dinner he did this } of these top lofty-fellows to deal with. Wouldn't I take him down !" Jenny kept silent, bhe lelt that she in dangerous compauy; that a person like Miss Blair, if permitted to influence her, would lead her into trouble. Miss Blair tried to pursue the subject ; hut Jenny turned it aside, and at last resolutely ignored it. Miss Blair r* disgusted with her frienù.ani went home early in the day, much *o Jenny's relief of mind. "Have you heard about the trouble between Carman and his wife ?" said a friend of John Armor, that morning. "No. What is it?" asked the latter. "She waB a Miss Lewis ?" "Yes ; I know her very well. A beauti ful, spirited girl.

"A moat unfortnua'e affair," said Armor, as a low shiver of concern went down to bis heart. "A meddlesome, inisohief making woman like that ought to be hung !" "Hanging is rather severe," answered the friend, smiling at Armor's almost savage warmth. The young man's peace of mind was gone. How nearly parallel oases ! He had been sharp on his wife at at breakfast time, and in presence of a visitor ; aud this visitor he kuew, advised Jenny to Bet herself against him—to teach him a lesson. What if, in a moment of anger she had gone off as Mrs. Carman had done 1 The thought stnuned him. He filled with pain, alarm aud anxiety. "If she has done this, it will be the saddest day iu her life and mine," he said to himself, a bitter realisation of the truth 0! what he uttered iu his heart.

Vega is the brightest of the fixed stars visible in the early evening and u then westward and a little to the north of the zenith ; Etaninis a moderately bright about 15° to the northward of Vega. To the naked eye the oomet looks like a very small and dim spot of light, lacking the Bharnness of a star.

THE PROBLEM Iu regard to clothing is to know where you will get a suit or overcoat which will hest suit your purpose in every way, and will give you the satisfaction which all clothing should when pro perly gotten up. Competi tion in the trade causes some clothing to ho im proved in the milking, in order to furnish a' really fir, t-dass article, and then again it causes a vast amount to begottert up in a manner just as cheaply as possible without regard to or durability, other words, for the purpose of a low priced gar ment. Now, while we con stantly aimtoseil everything at the lowest prices possible, we do not propose for the sake of doing this, to offer you clothing inferior in any way.
