'How late you are again, Philip!'' ex claimed Lotti"pettiähly, as her young hus band entered the sitting-room. And that was all she did say; neverthe less, it was just a half a dozen words too many, and she had far better been silent. Strange and sad as it is to think how often we mar a day's happiness nay even the happiness of a lifetime by a few careless words. Philip did not reply, but pulling off his boots and thrusting his feet into his Uppers, he eat down t the Are, which he began to stir. Apparently he whs not in good tem per, and was endeavoring to make the poker do duty ns safety-valve poking, poking away, as though he meant to stir out all the fire for the night. At last Lottie got quite nervous, and ber tone had lost none of its pettUhnes:?, us she said: "Oh, dear, Philip! what a state that grate and fender and ail will be in!" 'I can't do anything right, it seems," re turned Philip, crossly ; aud down went the poker with a crash. Lottie went on with her sewing for a minute or two. Then she inquired, quietly enough: ''What has put you out, Philip t. and arn't you going to have any tea?" Now, a man does not as a rule, like to be asked what has put him out. When his grievances have smouldered awhile in the solitude of his own breast, he may tell them or not, as it suits him, but he does not like to have them inquired into. "Nothing has put me out," was the curt reply. 'And how can I have my tea it you won't pour it out?" and in a moment Philip J had impatiently pulled on his boots again, and was gone, slamming the door alter him Lottie opened her lips to utter his name, but no sound came; instead, there she eat motionless, and pale and red by turns, with grief, anger and bewilderment. What had she done? And what had caused this ter rible difference lately in Philip? Little by little her Iipa began to quiver and her eyes to fill with fears; and soon she threw down her work, and burying her face in her hands burst into passionate weeping. They had only been married three months, jnt the glamor on both sides had faded al ready. Yet they were sensible young peo ple, and had by no means expected perfec tion in each other, though, both being young, they had possibly expected too much. They had also loved each other dearly, and had no doubt imagined that nothing more was needed to make their mutual happiness Never, surely, was greater mistake! For the fire of love needs fuel and attention a much as an v other fire, and if it does not get them it will as certainly die out. Many a wandering heart that has been easily won may prove difficult to keep. Yet, generally the power to do so lies in very little things. Lottie was an orphan, and had not been very well brought up having been shifted to Mtalk ehop... or he had uiked of thecom about among different relatives; but she had .lun f . now mmKi. fm- tbAir rW- a true, loving heart, and notwithstanding her crossness to 1 hilip, a really gentle, There was a knock at the door now; bat I she waited until it was repeated, and then drying her eyes she went to slowly and un willingly to open it, for her little maid had gone out. clear gray and with a face full of loving kindness, and Lottie 1 ved her dearly.

She waa standing before the little trlaaa over the chimney-piece, snd Lottie could watch j uer wiLuuub iteini? seen Deiniy entrairea- i meanwhile, in quickly putting away the neglected tea. And Lottie was feeling ashamed. She wore no pretty ribbons; they were lying tumbled and forgotten in her drawer. In the days befor her marriage so long ago, it seemed, and she feighed as she remembered the time in those days when Pailip'a eves 1 were forever uoon her. she had alwavs worn I a bricht bow or tie. But latelv she had given up the plan, thinking, half bitterly, that her husband never looked at her now, when the truth was that he was Quicker to see than ever, and more pleased when she paid him the compliment of dressing to satisfy his eyes than ever ho had been used to be. And what was Philip's mother doingnow? She had taken a seat and wasbueily knitting away at a warm comforter. Lottie could only guea for whom. Phillip was an only on. and his mother was a widow, and wholly wrapped up in him. And next pondering sadly still Loltir swept up the untidy grate and picked up the shreds of her work that had littered up the carpet, t l nen she put the chairs more exactly in their places, and one or two other things she did to make the room look neat. Once it had been always neat; but a careless mood had been upon Lottie for the last tew weeks, and she had leit on being so particular. Terhaps that had been another mistake, for Philip's own home, she knew, was always a pattern ot neatness. And she remembered now how, mere than once, Philip had vexed her by going, and as she afterward foond out. sitting for aj nour or uivro wibu uia tuuiuvr, rhu leaving her (his wife) alone. And ehe had won dered what secret charm that old lady pos eessed that nad so mucn more power over the young man than any that his newly made wife had vet discovered. "Where is Philip?" inquired his mother presently. Gone out," uttered Lottie, in a tone that was almost harsh in its pain and humilia tion, and then she burst into tears. The old laay put aown ner work a mo- pent aud tenderly caressed her daughter ia-law. "What is the matter, my dear? 8ome lit tie misunderstanding? Ah, well, don't let it hurt you " much." And the old lady caused. "These things will occur," she presently continued. "We all have our le s onsto learn. Tell me all about it lr you can, and let me at least try to help you. I was a vouDg wue once, yeu Know: and 1 found it not all sunshine, and that I must ... ..I cVimilsl V aimri hannv nna whan Hhilirt And there stood Philip s mother a tall, " . j j j r I v v U grand-looking woman, with wonderful eyes iier inquired for tea she had llarge, briint, sparkling,, and of a deep, ld him tha tit was not ready y' and not alone depend upon earthly hap piness, or I should be terribly disap pointed. But there is one thing, child, that I may as well say while I think of it, and that is, that my Philip is rather inclined to be sulky, and, once oflended, he is some times a long time in coming round. But you must have patience with him, dear, and treat him gently and kindly, and all will be well in the end for he loves you very dearly 'Oh, mother," interrupted Lottie, sobbing still, but more quietly, "he is very good. It is I who have been to blame, I am sure. Oh, do advise me, and help me! I did so mean to make a good wife, and still I have driven Philip away already." "Do not cry so, my child. Uome, wipe awav the tears, and then tell me what vou and 'Philip have been doing." And bo Lottie was freely pouring out all her grifi. Their long talk was over, and though Philip had not yet returned, and though his mother had at length departed, leaving Lot tie to wait up alone, yet the young wife s heart felt wonderful !v lightened "How did you contrive to keep Philip with you so much hour after hour and evening after evening?" was the gist of all the questions she had put to her mother-in- j law. And the sum total of the old lady's replies was this: "1 loved him, not myself; ana I did not keep him at all, my dear. He stayed to please himsel:. And so Lottie learned what seemed to her a most strange lesson, namelv, that there is no selfishness like the selfishness of love I not real love, of course, but what goes for I real love with half the world .She discovered I that she had been loving herself instead of I f hilip, and that mu9t certainly be the rea son why she had not pleased him. Instinct warned her now that he would not care to see her up when he returned, therefore she went to bed. But not to sleep for she wished to listen for Philip, and besides she was thinking of a great treat in store for them both. Mrs. Burton wished them to come and stay with her for a week, and Lottie had been creatly pleased at the idea. She would go, and make her own observations, she determined, and then come back and treat Philip, as nearly a3 might be, as bis mother treated him. Philip, as his mother had forewarned her, had not recovered his good humor by the next morning, but Lottie resolved not to despair, and set about the preparations for their little visit in tolerably happy spirits. Thev went and returned: &cl rnw thank ful was Lottie. Philip was not yet what he had once been to her perhaps she some times sadly thought he never would be again nevertheless, she felt that she had gained valuable new knowledge, which persistently acted upon would give her such power over him as she had never vet possessed. More over, ho wa? daily becoming dearer to her, and love is a great and wonderful teacher. It was the first evening after their return. Lottie was alone. She had hoped that Phil ip would have stayed with her this evening. Hut no; he bad gone out directly after tea, and she had forborne to reproach him even a 00j. 1 here she sat in her pretty, fresh gray dress, with a rose-colored r.Lbon at her throat, while her brown hair shone like sat in. The room, too was as neat as a pin, and she had tea ready to the minute. The fire also had been blazing brightly when Philip entered, and the kettle singing merrily, and his wife had met him with a happy, hopeful smile. " Always have an eye to cheerful ness and comfort,'' was a bit of advice which her mother-in-law had given her, and dur ing the whole day she had been striving to act upon it. But so far it Eeemed as it all had been of no use whatever. The first trial was over and Philip was gone, and she was leit alone to reconsider her plans. But, to begin with, she was living over again that visit which she would never f tto Phni .g mother. She recalled the first evening they span together. No matter what subject of con versation Phillip had started, his mother had shown a quick and ready, and real in terest; and a sensible interest also. And with shame and vexation Lottie had re membered how very far she had been from doing the same. Philip, perhaps had men- titnorl enm a cnliiönt vnnasfprt with nia Vino. ;nP6. aTU -, va uheA nrf tnU him not 0u?u, and she had listened and replied very indifferently, or, perhaps, bad not thought it worth while to repiv at all. ... . , , ; , " i jxi.CTaiSj iw9 Lmvjii ai w a T o ;uuvu9t cv Mrs. Burton's, and this had given Lottie another sharp reproof. Many a time in the little new home, which she had meant She blushed now with contrition as she remembered how many such words she had spoken to the husband whom she vet loved; and rue began to see that if ever there had been any necessity for waiting Fhiljp would l ave starved rather than have uttered Pjf' but 11 Entire needlessne. of ll t hwe "n11 anoyances which have-ided ahd V6X6d him. Also, Lottie recalled to mind, almost with tears in her eye?, how l'hilip had ore eve- nixig accidentally broken a favorite vase of mo iuuiuci o, nuv n unu uau wrcu greatly distressed and concerned, his mother only smiled at him. "I should have scold ed,' Lottie had thought, and she had said something of the kind afterward to his mother, and the good lady had looked sur prised, but had answered the next moment with a grave shake of the head: "No, vou would not, my dear if you loved him as much as his mother does, that is. There are very few things my Philip can do to vex me. I should storm at any one else, I dare say, but I teally believe my son might turn my house out of the window without mak ing his mother angry with him, bless himl" And it was love that made all this differ- ence, and Lottie had telt wounded and sad. She. then, had not vet learned to love Philin r T - y - r her Philip her dear husband whom she had thought was all the world to her. And then again, no naa gone out one evening, and his wite naa looked grave and not well pleased; but his mother had lov- . , I'll! i; it , ingiy gm lieu on Diuuing mm gooa-oy, ana when he was out of hearing ehe had said: " If he wants to go out, let him go, dear boy. And may the good Ood bles and keep him, and give him wisdom always to choose inno- cent pleasures and to resist temptation. His old mother would very much like to lave Lim with her always; b it ßhe never lets him see that; it would be simple selfishness." Again and again Lottie went over all this, and her spirits rose with each review; for I she determined that she. too. would follow I in the fond mother's footsteps, and hence forth cultivate an unselfish love. And she J did not forget to seek strength from a higher source and motive than can be found in any- imn oi mis world aiono. ttAj oy day bqo persavered: dav bv. dav she hoped and prayed. Months passed, and Philip proved him self very hard to win this second time. Nevertheless, in patience and cheerfulness Lottie continued her ehorts, and in his se cret heart Philip soon began to admire the brave, bright little woman more than ever he had done even in the days of their court ship. At length the last, faintestcloud had van ished. . There lay Lottie; and nestling to her was the tiny, velvet face of the little peacemaker Philip's baby son, and hers. What an untold world of delight lay in the thought The unconscious fingers of the little child had drawn husband and wife far closer than ever before; and Philip, with eyes full of love and feeling, had bent over Lottie and kiased her, as she had never thought to have him kiss her again. And every hour that he could spare Philip sat with her now. bhe begged him Borne times to go out for more air and exercise, but he would not go, or if, to please her he did go for a little while, he seemed very glad to get back to her again. Lottie thought that, as she sot about once more, and things fell into their old train, Philip would spend hia evenings out again, as he had done for so lone. But no, he had quite changed, and he seemed now as if he could not be at home enough. "Do you never mean to leave me again. Philip?" she asked, one evening, gayly enough, as she was undressing her little. crowing baby-bry, while her husband sat reading his Darjer beside her. I lie looked around with a smile. "Not unless you wish it dear. Why should I ? You are always ready to wel- come me, and to talk to me. and you svm- pathize directly with everything I have to say. You are never tired of me, never of fended with me. You never tease or weary me. I know that you wish only for my good and pleasure. Why then should I leave you? No; when I want to go out I'll take my wife with me, or, if I can't do that. 1 11 stav at home." And I'huip kissed both mother and child, and eturned to his paper, And Lottie made no reply (unless her bright tearful eyes did so for her), her thankfulness and pleasure were too great, And as the sat there, hushing her child to slumber, she mused upon love selfish- however unconsciously so and love tinsel fish, and the difierence it had made to her. All day long she was on the watch to pro- mote rhihp's comfort and happiness, and behold, in so doing, she had most truly tound her own. bo It is always: and with what measure we mete, it shall be measured to us again.

New York FosLj Whenever the truth could reach his ears, the late Alexander never failed to redress the wrongs done bv his representatives. His severity toward officers who had betrayed their trust should have commended him to the love of the people. One morning, some years ago, the Czar, who had started for a walk in the Jardin d rAe, with his favorite dog, Milord, was accosted by an old woman. Not recognizing him, she asked whether he was employed in the Winter Palace. "Yes," answered the Czar; "what can I do for you?" Then the od woman told bun that a long time before she had lent a large sum to a high functionary in the palace, and she could not get him to pay her. She was in extreme poverty, she paid, and the sum would be a Godsend to her in the present circumstances. The Emperor inquired for the officer's name, and promised her that he would use his influence to have the claim settled. Ap pointment was given her by His Imperial Majesty for the morrow at noon, at the same place where they were standing, if the gentleman failed to pay his debt before that. Keturniug to the palace, the Emperor sent for the debtor. The latter acknow ledged his indebtedness, but pleaded lack of money, ins .Majesty gave him the money out of his own pocket, telling him to go at once and settle with his needy creditor. Next morning, however, the Czar was sur prised to see the woman punctual to the eventual appointment He lirst imagined she had come to express her thanks, but he soon learned that she had received nothing. The Czar frowned and ordered her to follow him to the palace. He was in a state of great excitement. He walked so fast that the poor lady could hardly keep up with him. When he saw servants, soldiers, Gen erals, every one bow most humbly to her guide she was stupefied. The guards were about Hopping sign and no her, but the Czar made a further hindrance was put to her stepping into the Imperial apartments. The functionary was summoned. "Vhat does this mean? ' iid the J2m- peror. " x ou nave not paid ; this woman. What have you done with the money I gave you 9 The officer made such a piteous face that to a the Czar's anger almost gave place desire to laugh. "Well, xeur Majesty," replied the man, on my way home I - was assailed by so many creditors that I had nothing left for this woman. How the jackals had learned I had the money I know not, but the fact is they knew it and forced me to surrender it." The Czar accepted the excuse, paid the old lady, and issued a ukase to the effect that the pn vi leges which noblemen enjoyed as regards the debta they had contracted should he abolished. More than one courtier who had hitherto violated his most solemn en gagements with men of the people was severely punished by Alexander for not complying with his orders, t , ' When m the neyday or ma manhood Alexander II. had few rivals as a sportsman. Almost every ihursday then was by mm. devoted to hunting. The chase of the bear was his favorite exercise. An anecdote may be related in this connection, which bespeaks the peculiar courage with which he was endowed. This quality rather than dashing was of the passive kind. One day he had fired the two hots contained in his double- barreled gun at a bear, causing simply a slight wound. The beast rose on his hind paws, then savagely rushed tor tiiesoyereign, who was seated, as was customary with him, on a camp-stool. The men who ac companied him naturally anticipated that the Czar, unarmed as he was, would with draw. They were mistaken. The bear was not more than two yards distant from the Czar, and the latter had not moved from his seat, i He -was saved by Petroö, who vio lently pulled him back and cent a bullet through the animal's heart Such was Alex ander's nature never to recede. This anecdote brings another to mind. During a sojourn at Moscow, Alexander ex pressed a desire to hunt the bear in the neighborhood. Explorers were dispatched in various directions, but no trace of a bear was to be found.) Rather than ' disappoint his Majesty a bear was purchased from some Barnum who owned a circus in the city The animal was carried to a given point in the country and let loose at the time when the imperial hunter, arrived on the spot The bear, however, outwitted the Emperor's courtiers. As it came within sight of the imperial party it probably thought itself in the presence of its usual spectators, and be gan to dance its best style, as if it had been in a circus, and thus saved its life. The Czar heartily laughed at the revenge the animal had taken uton his toadies, and Ordernd the I harmless brute to be placed in the Bt Peters- i Durg zoological uaruen. Whooping Cough, f II all's Journal of Health. Whooping cough, called pertussis by phy sicians, is said to be owing to the presence of bacteria under the root of the tongue. The cough' is so urgent tba.t the breath he- comes exhausted, and, in the euort to draw in the needed air, the top of the windpipe snein9 to nearly close, causing a whooping sound. The old plan was to letthediseaserun its course, being careful that the symptoms were not aggravated by cold. " Certain medi eines seem to act favorably in some cases and in others to have no noticeable effect The following hav been recommended: The fluid extract of hyoscyamus, . from one to four drops, depending on the age of the patient A blister to back of neck. ' Fric tions to the spine twice a day, with onion juice. Beat a fresh egg In a pint ox vinegar and add half a pound of loaf sugar; take two tablespoonfula every four hours. The best treatment for the cure of whooping cough that has yet been discovered undoubtedly is to expose me patients to .the vapors arising from the purifying boxes in gas works, uut it is not always convenient for the patient to visit these places; and it has been found to answer iust as well to procure some of the liquid hydro carbon that is al ways found at the bottom of the purifying boxes, and vaporize it in a metal dish 'in the closed room of the little patient It almost always affords immediate relief, and the whooping will not return for hours. This liquid can be obtained at any gas works at little or no cost, and no expense need be in curred for vaporizers. A tablespoonful or more may be evaporated at a time, and re peated once a day or oftener. A large iron spoon makes a good evaporating dish. It may be held over the flame of a lamp, or a coal shovel may be heated and the liquid poured into it and allowed to evaporate in the room of the patient. This treatment would probably beoeneficial in throat and lung troubles. It is safe, convenient and inexprenive. TABLK GOSSIP. A lawyer's brief is very long. And Mr. White is black.

When we hear a man boast of the leneth of his ancestry we are reminded of the quaint saying of the farmer: "The older the seed the worse the crop." "Do not marry a widower." said the old lady.

A correspondent of the London Echo writes that matrimony, an expensive luxury at all times, is rendered still more so in En eland by a tax upon wedding rings. The duty is seventeen shillings an ounce, and the revenue derived therefrom is about $100,000 per annum. The fashion of wear ing very thick wedding rings has greatly in creased the revenue ot late years, viz.: from $30,000 to $100,000. The correspondet adds: 'Foreigners may well laugh at our calling ourselves a free trade Nation. In no other country in the world is a wedding ring taxed.'T An interesting incident in connection with the departure of the Princess of Wales for bt. Petersburg took place immediately before the train was set in motion. A iav or te dog. Joss, accompanied Her Roval Highness to the station, and was with much difficulty confined to the waiting room till her departure. After frequent plunges the tine animal slipped her collar and dashed out upon the platform just as the train was in motion. The Princess remained at the carriage window waiving adieux to friends and acknowledging the hearty farewell cheers of the dense crowd of spectators, but Her Royal Highness evidently did not per ceive the efforts of the dog to overtake the train. The devoted animal was last ob served following the carriage down the line, still in pursuit, till he was ultimately lost to view in the outer darkness. Up to a late hour he had not been recovered, and fears were entertained for his fate along so danger ous a track. SOCIETY DIRECTORY. Ulnnonlc. Gktbssmams Cow map a t. K. T., No. 9.
