Don’t refuse. My wife heartily seconds tbo invirtation. Ah, Tom, sht’s a jewel— wife- I know if you could meet suoh a one you would forswear baol o'orhood She is the dearest, sweetest, best tem pered, loveliest—the English language fails me here, but, as you are always better than I on the unabridged, i beseech you to look therein for some endearing adjectives and oomplete the sentence. You, Hall, wheo you have seen my happy home, will ohange your tuae. You must opine, Tom. I won’t take a refusal. Yours, etc., Joe Hall. I answered his letter, thus: My Dear Jojs; l thought when I last saw you I could neve* be tempted to jeopardize my peace of mind or my bones by again placing' myself at the mercy of your practical jokes. But 1 have no other reoourse now than to ac cept your invirtation. You must prom ise me, my dear fellow, you will not play any of your jokes. A married man ought to be more dignified, and if you play any tricks on me I warn you 1 shall board the first train for home. Yours, etc. Tom ThursJton. 1 went, L was met at the train by Joe’s servant, a man who had a long body, dressed in a long coat, a long waist coat, a long tie, a long hat, long boots, and whose name was Long. I inetino tively hated this man. He scrutinized me closely; I returned his scrutiny. He watched my every movement as a detective would a supposed crminal. 1 watched his movements as a timid man would a vicious canino’s. We at lcDgth reached Joe’s house. I anticipated Joe’s welcome, hut in his placo came the loveliest woman 1 ever saw. It is true, as Joe said, I was always fluent in language, but to this day 1 cannot flud words to satisfy me in describing her eurpasslng beauty. “Joe, Joe," thought I, “it is well for you that you met her first. “You are Mr. Thurston?’ she asked timidly approaching me, and shyly glancing at mo from under her eyelids. I informed her I was the personage, and inquired for Joe. For answer,, that gentleman himself who was ou horseback, sprang from the saddle, grasped my baud, and like the irrepressible Joe of old, cried: “Glad to sec you, old boy! We’ll have glorious good times, as of old! We'll hunt, fish, smoke, etc., till you grow so fat, hale and hearty that your most intimate friends wont know you. Come, let’s go in: tea is waiting. Pardon me for not introducing you, but I suppose you introduced yourself in my absence. Apropos, it was inhospitablo in me to absent myself on your arrival, but busi. ness called mo away.’’ So rattling on, Joe ushered mo into the coziest little parlor that ever a poor bachelor was ever called on to envy. But tho cozy little wife? What was tho envy of the room with its adorn ments to the envy of such a wife? Must I admit?—l might as well ad mit it righf here as at anyfurther period of my recital—l felt a thrill at my heart. It was a thrill of exquisite pain—a thrill of jealousy of Joe’s happiness. “Joe,” I mentally cried, “bettor, far better for me if 1 had declined yonr invitation.” Presently we had a most rofreshijg supper, after which Joe and l strolled out fora walk and a smoke. “Joe," I exclaimed, enthusiastically, “your encomiums of your wife were merited. She is indeed a treasurer. By Jovo, if I could find such a jewel I would never rest until I had won and married her.” Joo was on tho point of lighting a cigar when 1 begun, but paused with upraised match till I had finished—and the match burned his fingers. I thought for a time he was angry at my impetuosity, but his face cleared away and tho old wicked twinkle that I feared so much oarne to his eyes. He grasped my hand, saying: “You’reright my boy; she’s the dear est little wife in the universe. I'm glad you like her. ’ After we had finished our cigars and tulkc some time of our old collego days, we reentered the house, “Nellie,” criod Joe, opening the piauo, “favor Tom and me with Ja tune. He has a passion for music.” “Perhaps, Mr. Thurston” —began she, but was interrupted by Joe. “No, Nellie. I protest! No mister ing around here. It’s plain Tom. Do you hear, Tom ? She’s to call you Tom, and you’ro to call her Nellie. Vio lation of this rule will incur my eternal displeasure. Govern ‘yourselves ac cordingly.” “Perhaps he will object,’ pleaded Nellie. “No, no,” 1 exclaimed; “it will please me very much —and—I will feel highly honored to be allowed to address you by that name.” “Pshaw, Tom! It’ll please her. Won’t it Nell?” She laughed and gavo mo a bewitch ing look accompanied by a nod. “I was going to said Nellie, “that perhaps you oould sing with me.” “No, no, excuse me; I can’t sing Nellio” The word was uttered with a gasp and 1 certainly tamed violently red in the face. Joe was looking at mo, and 1 saw he had a desperate strugglo to control the muscles of his mouth. I was indeed fond of music, but I was entranced with her magniiioent voice. The evening passed on golden wings. Joo ran on in his wild old ways, told his jokes and laughed just as boisterously as he did when we roomed together at college. He |did not give us much chance to join in the conversa tion; for ono comio anecdote reminded him of another which he must tell. We both laughed heartily at his stories, and talked volumes to each other with our eyes. That night I dreamed that I loved Nellie. (Oh, truthful dream!) I dreamed she reciprocated that love (Oh, vaiu dream 1) Then I dreamed intrigue began. Wo determined to elope. My heart bled for poor Joe, but I folt it was death to live without her. Now she has met me under the south of Joe’s house. I see her pale, excited face! I feel her nervous hand clasping mine! Now we are fleeing! Joe is on our track! We glide along smoothly in a light boat. Now we are safe and she is mine—mino forever! But <io, Joe faster? Joe ap proaches swiftly. Now he closes in on us? He has oaught her in his cruel grasp! Her beautiful, pleading oyes are raised to mine! 110 raises a knife aloft! Then I catch his arm, we strug gle silently together, I wrest the knife from his grasp and plunge it into his breast, and he drops from the misty boat and sinks beneath tho dark waves! How dark the river has grown by the light of tho moon! The gaunt and ghaitly figure of Mr. Long suddenly emerges from the waves! I saw him eatoh my darling in his long arms, and before I oould interfere, thoy had both disappear od beneath the turbid waves of the river! This awoke m 3. I arose and resumed my wearing apparel, bathed my feverish face and went forth into the air to try and exorcise the ovil spirits with a cigar. JOE’S WIFE. Herald. By the ensuing morning my dream had ceased to trouble me, but the roality of things did not cease. There was Aellie and all her beauty, all her sweet ness to tempt me on to love her. There was Joe, with all his exuberance of spirit and as unsuspicious as a child. He seemed to do all in his power to bring us together. He ofteu lured us ioto interesting conversation or managed to get us engaged in singing and playing and leave us alone for houis. Days passed away and lapsed into weeks; in these weeks I was almost the constant companion of Nellie Hall. We were riding, boating, and to innumerable concerts and entertainments, all through the suggesting and planning of Joe. I felt and well knew the danger; I was fascinated at first—and now I was ir retrievbaly in love. The thought of breakiog away from this oharrning creature caused me pain like unto death. I resolved to leave. No matter what it cost me, the honorable oourse for me to pursue was to return to the city and forget—no, not forget, for never could 1 forget the only woman 1 ever did or could love. Joe was absent on the day 1 arrived at this determination. All the better 1 thought; it would be easier to get away. 1 proceeded to pack up and get ready to go on the evening train. I noticed during the progroas of paoking, that long body of Long was overshadowing me. He seemed determined not to let anything escape his observation. At length when I bad finished my work, he approaohed me. His long arm was raised to his breast pocket, and from thence he extracted a letter whioh he banded to me. I tore it open: it was from Joe and read thus: “Thomas Thurston you are a traitor! Ino longer doubt your perfidy. Long has watched yon and Nellie closely. It is useless to deny yonr intention of eloping with her. I demand satisfaction and it can only be ’from your heart’s blood. Meet me on the river bank, and by the light of the moon and in the pres once of Long we will settle our differences.’’ I looked up. Long had disappear ed and in his plaoe stood Nellie. “Why, you’ro not going to leave us are you?’’ she asked. I thought she addressed me in a tono of regret I looked into her bright eyes—such beautiful loving eyes! How oould 1 pain her? How could I drivo the blood from oheeks and the light from her eyes by showing her Joe’s letter and telling all? She came very near me and said coaxiogly: “Don’t go Tom; I will bs so lonely here now.’ “I cannot slay, Nellie, I regret having io leave you ’’ My words came fast aud almost inarticulated. “I thought to be on my way now and can only stay long enough to bid you adieu/’ “But Tom, what will Joe say? Surely you will stay till he eomes!” “No, no. I cannot Nellie; indeed I cannot. 1 can never forget the happi ness I have had here this summer; bat I must leave you now, and fear—it is forever!” My voice was unsteady; and l clasped both her hands very tightly in mine. “Forever!” she repeated. “O, Tom, for ever!” W hat a world of tenderness, of re* gret, io her intonations. It died away like a wall of woe. “No Nellie; never shall I see you again—never!” “Never!" the moan died away and the beautiful eyes wore raised to mine in speechless agony, that wrung my heart with paio. “Oh Nellie, do not break my heart! My grief, wretchedness is beyond bear ing now. Your beloved eyes looking into mine will baunt me in coming years. Yon know our secret; recriminate if you will, Nellie my darling!” A light sprung into her eyes; strange dazzling light that spread over her beantiful face, the light of measureless love, of a transport of joy. “Farewell!” I cried in a husky voioe, not daring to stay longer; “farewell!” and I turned to go, when her fingers closed over iniae. 1 turned to her again and she threw her arms about my neck. “You must not go! You shall not go! for I love you !” aud the beaming face was bidden on my breast. A chuckling noise from behind start led us; it broke into a laugh, then into loud shoutß and frightful roars, inter mingled with hideous guffaws and a woman’s musical laugh, till the hills echoed and reechoed the sound. Nellie’s face was suffused with blushes and she drew away from me; but I olasped her more closely; a light break ing in on my bewiiderd brain “Ha! ha! ha!” roared Joe, whiio Long emitted a series of strange sounds very like a laugh. “Ho! ho! hoi Long—ha! ha! ha! wife —Tom thought sister Nell was—bal ha! ha!— was my wife!” IOWA.

Printers havo never, we think, re ceived due appreciation for ' the honorable confidence which they have preserved in regard to the se crets with which they havo neces sarily been entrusted.* Such a case as this often happens. An article in a newspaper or magazine makes what is called a “sensation. ’ It is entirely anonymous, and public curiosity is excited to the utmost to discover the name of the author. The writer may be a cabinet minist er, a high official, a courtier, or any of the thousand and one persons who if he were suspected of writing for the press, would at once lose his po sition, his office—perhaps his reputa tion. On tho other hand, the writer may bo a struggling author, a hard working journalist, or a more literary amateur. In any case his secret is preserved; his anonymity is safe as long as it is confined to the printers. Somo yoars ago there was a great stir made about a book ontltled “Kceo Homo.” It was a clever work, and had an unoxarnplod success. “Who is tho author?” was the quostion on o very body’s lips. Sotno scores of porsons were named, and they repudiated their participation in it. All sorts of conjectures woro hazarded, and no doubt large sums would have boon paid by several conductors of jout rials for authentic information as to the name of the author. Yet that name was known to a master printor, hisovorsocr, and at least to some of tho compositors, but it was never rcvoalod. When the name was published, it was not through the instrumentality of tho printers, but entirely independent of them. Thoyhad faithfully kopt the secret. Going back a fow yoars, the authorship of tho“ Waverly Novels’’ may bo referred to as a remarkable incident of literary history. Sir Waller Scott’s authorship, although known by twenty persons, including u nurnbor of printers, was so well concealed that the great novelist could not oven in his matchless vocabulary, find words or praise sufficient to express the sense of his grateful acknowledgment and won dering admiration for the matchless fidelity with which the mystery had been preserved. There is another species of secre cy— that relating to tho careful supervision of conndcntial public documents, books printed foi secret sociotios, and tho authorship of arti cles or pamphlets, as already refei red to, whieh has been most honorably maintained. When treaties are pro maturely published in newspapers tho copy is obtained from some leaky or venal official, and not from any of the printers who set up or work off the original. A easo of this kind occurred a year or two ago, wherein a convention betwoen this country and anolhet power was revealed to one of tho ovening newspapers. In tho foreign office, at Whitehall, there is a rogular staff of printers always at work, and if those men liked they might lot out secrets of tho most momentous kind, any ono of which would perhaps, in those days of journalistic competition, be worth a fow hundred pounds. But such a dereliction of duty has never yet oc cured; it was a clerk, and not a com positor, who botrayod his trust. Most honorable to tho profession is tho story ot Harding, tho printer, who bravely bore imprisonment rath er than reveal tho authorship of tho celobratod “Drapier” letters. Tho prihtorsatin his cell calmly refusing the entreatios of his frionds to divulge thenamooftho writor, Dean Swift, a church magnate, and a great wit, who dressed himsolf in tho disguise of a low Irish peasant, and sat by, listening to tho noble refusal and the louder importunitios. only anxious that no word or glance from the un fortunate printer should roveal the secret. Swift was bent solely upon securing his own safety at tho ox ponso of the printer; ho cowered before tho legal danger which Hard ing nobly confronted. Tho world has unequally allottod the meed ol fame to tho two combatants. The wit and the printor both fought tho battlo for the liberty of the press, until the sense of an outraged com munity released tho typographer fYom tho peril so nobly oncountorod. A thousand othor instances of similar fidelity bus bcon exhibited. In short, it is part of the professional honor of a printor not to disclose, either wantonly or from venal mo tives, the secrets of any office in which ho is employed. This is also tho allegiance which printers pay to their chief, in not divulging important intelligence. In some cases a compositor is necessarily entrusted with an itom of nows which would bo nogotiablo itnmodi* ately, and worth pounds to him. Sel dom or never is there n betrayml of trust in this wav. Tho examination papers, printed so extensively in London, are of tho most tremendous importance to certain classes, who would pay almost any sum to obtain tho roughest proof tho night before. An instance of this kind occurred quite recently. “A printei was got at,” and promisod a considerable amount of money for u rough proof. What was his course ot action? Ho simply informod the authorities, and tbo tomptor was punished. It was anothoranda creditable example of how well and honorably kopt are tho secrets oft he printin g office. A War Anecdote. During tho lato war Genera' McLaws, now postmaslor atSavanab, was riding down his picket lino, and encountered a genuine f-on of the old Pino Troo stato on duty, who had taken his gun apart with tho intention of giving it u thorough cioaning. Tho general hallod in front of him, when tho following conversation ensued : “Look here, ray man, uro you not a sentinel on duty?” “Well, y a»; n bit of a one." “Don’t you know it is wrong to take your gun apart whilo on duty?" “Well, now, who tho devil arc you?" Tho gonoral saw his chance, and, with a sly twinkle of his eyo, replied: “I’m a bit of a general.” “Well, gineral, you must excuse tno; you soo there is so many d d fools ridin’ ’round here a follor can’t toll who is general and who ain’t; now if you'll just wait till I git Betsy Jane fixod I’ll givo you a bit of a salute.’’ The general sinilod and rode on, firm ly convinood that thatsontinol would prove oqual to any omorgoncy. A Splendid Dairy is one thst yields its owner a good profit through the whole season. But he must supply the cows with what they ueed in order for them to be able to keep up the product.

Eleven flours Quicker to Washington than any Other Lin*. From the Chicago Tribune The new fast train on the Baltimore and Ohio goes on to-day, and will, doubtless, at once become the popular line to Washington and the east, as it is no less than eleven hours quicker between this city and the National Capital than the fastest train by any other line. It is tho only train out of Chicago b}* which Washington can be reached with but one night on the road, while its time to New York and Boston is the same as that mado by the fastest of competing lines. Pas sengors leaving here at 5:15 p. m. reach Washington tho next evening, the run being made in less than twenty-eight hours, without change of cars of any class. An immense amount of work has boon done upon tho track, a large forco of men being still distributed along tbc entire line. The Janney, the latest, and by many of tho loading railread men declared the best of all coupling platforms, has just been introduced upon tho pas senger equipment of the B. k O. which by the way is of tho finest run out of this city. The company, as is well known, owns its own dining stations, and thoso have recently been renovat od and placed under the immediate supervision of tho Gale Bros., old and well known hotel men. The B. A O. has evidently determined to hold its own out of Chicago and the west generally, and certainly the traveling public will not ho slow to appreciate the advantage offered. By this new order of things Baltimore also gains greatly at all its eastern points, reaching Philadelphia,, New York and Boston at the same time a* the fastest trains of other roads.

Among all the disagreeable consequen ces that follow the decay of tbe teeth, an impure breath must be the most mortify ing and unpleasant to the possessor, and it is the most inexcusable and offensive in society; and yet the cause of it may easily be removed by cleansing your teeth daily with that justly popular dentifrice, Fragrant SOZODONT. It purifies and sweetens the breath, cools and refreshes the mouth, and gives a pearl-like appear ance to the teeth. Gentlemen who in dulge in smoking should cleanse their teeth with SOZODONT, as it removes all unpleasant odors of the weed. Ask roar druggist for it. A down east circus has a cannibal among its attractions, but the foolish re luctance of women to give up their ba bies deprives him of many opportunities to show off. Is it Possible That a remedy made of such common, simple plants as Hops, Buchu, Mandrake, Dandelion; &c., make so many and such marvelous and wonderful cures as Hop Bitters do? It must be, for when old and young, rich and poor, Pastor and Doctor, Lawyer and editor, all testify to having been cured by them, we must believe and doubt no longer. See other column.

By this new method every sick person cau get a package of the dry vegetable compound, Kidney-Wort, and prepare for themselves six quarts of medicine. It is a specific cure for Kidney Diseases, Liver Complaint, Constipation and Piles, and a grand tonic for females. It is said that one glass ol plain soda water costa one-tenth of a cent, and yet it makes as much splutter and noise as a glass of champagne. They work Together. When your system gets out of tune and you feel completely played out, it is pret ty certain that you need a medicine to act on both the kidneys and liver, for these important organs work together in free ing the system of its waste, and keeping up the tone. Then take Kidney-wort, for this is just what it does, for it Is both diuretic and carthartic. Cats usually have no political belief. They are on the fence.

Tho term “Blue Stockings,” so often applied to literary Indies, orig inated in tho time of Dr. Johnson. Boswell relatos in 1781 that it was the fashion for ladies to form evening classes, that i hey might participate in thought with literary and ingen* ious men. One of tho best of tbe members, who rejoiced in tho name of Stillingfleet, invariably appeared with his pedal extremities encased in bluo worsted stockings. When absent, it was bomoaned by his associates, “wo can do nothing without ‘Blue Stockings.’” From him the term gradually was transferred to ladies’ clubs. Finally, for pedantic or ridic ulously literary ladies, this term is sacredly kopt. Unions of blue stock ings were often hold at Mrs. Mon tague’s house, and generally honored by the presence of Dr. Johnson. The principal members of this club are sketched and eulogized by Hannah More in her “Bas Bleu.” Tbe Seven Day Advents will bold a general camp meeting in Dee Moines eotnmencing June 3d con tinuing until tbe Bth, ample pro* visions will bo made to accommodate all who may attend.
