"Ho, Iiuni," sighed William Taylor, as he seated himself by the stove, and propped up his head with both hi: hands. He had ju?t made the Are. It was six o'clock on a winter, morning the '1st day ot January and his wifehad.be- gun to get breakfast. William Taylor was an under clerk in the oflice of the Bagg Corporation, a large manufacturing establishment in a Xew England village. He had been married about two years, hut life went hard enough with him. Though he did the best lie knew how to do, he could not make both cuds of the year meet. It is true, he hud some notions abouthis social standing that were not exactly in keeping with his position, and especial ly not with his salary, which was only three hundred dollars a year. Dollars and cents were the most un manageable commodities he was called upon to handle. Tliey were slippery, and would not stay between his lingers; all he could do. He had not devoted much attention to the subject of linancc and in consequence it became one of the many trial of his life. "Whut is the matter, William?" asked his wife, touched with his deep sigh. " This is pay-day," replied the "hus band, with another deep sigh. "What of' it? You look as though you had not a friend in'the world." " I am miserable, Ellen." " Miserable?" "I am indeed." - .". W.uat, because it ls.pay-day J .. " Yes".-' "People, generally feel rejoiced at such times." " I don't know. I have been awake half the night thinking of it." ; Why, William; why should you feel so unhappy?" " I owe more than I can pay" " Yon do?" Ellen who was no financier, any, more than her husband, had never given the subject a thought. She was not n' little surprised at the abrupt announcement. ' I do Ellen ; and I am fearful that I shall have trouble with it." "What sort of trouble?"' asked El len, frightened, hut having no definite idea ol what to dread. " Perhaps some one will sue me, trus tee my salary, or something of that kind." " Why did you not tell me of this be fore, William? I would rather live on crust of bread and wear acalico to church; than make you unhappy, or have you sued or trusteed. Will they put you in jail?" and the young wife actually trembled at the thought of such a catastrophe. " I think not ; but they may put me to a great deal of trouble." " Why did you not tell me before?" " I did not know It myself. Last Tuesday I made a few figures and found that I owed about one hundred and' fif ty dollars. Jly quarter's salary Is only seventy-five." " But some of them will wait. Wc will retrench." "I went to Spike; but he refused to wait beyond the lirst of January." "Wo have been extravagant, Wil liam." "I am afraid we have." "How much do you owe Spiko?" ".About thirty dollars.-' " Yes, Mich hills count up fast." "We ought to not owe him a cent. Wc ought to not ride at all, though I enjoy riding very much." "So do I, and Spike was always will ing to trust me." Spike kept the livery stable of the village, and was generally willing to run long bills with those of whom there was any chance of getting his pay. " I am sorry." " 1 had no idea the bill was so tnucl) till he sent it in about three weeks ago." " We must stop riding. "It will bo hard to do so. After I get done at the oflice, it is so pleasant to drive half-a-dozen miles; but I didn't think had ridden so much." "Perhaps he'll wait." "2Jo; he said he would not." to "What shall be done?" "I don't know'."' " Can't you borrow some money?" "Perhaps I can." " W'on't Mr. ilason lend you some He has been very kind to you, and seems to be very much interested in you " t shduldri't like to ask him." ''Whjrnot?" "I should have to expose my affairs to him. I'll tell you what I'll do." "What?" " I' win write to Aunt Hannah. You know how fond she, is of me. I will ask, her to. lend me a hundred dollars, She is rich, and perhaps she'll give It to me." William did not like to have her do so, bufthe perils fn his path finally in duced him to consent. On the strengtli of the letter he colild put Spike off week or, two. There was something to hope for, at least, and Willian ate his breakfast and felt much 'easier. 'He did not consider that borrowlnghe money tdpay-adebt was only transferring not cancelling It But he looked only to escape his im portunate creditors this time,he did not fear for the future. It was a quarter of eight by the clock, and he was required to be in the otllce.as soon as tho porters opened the gate, v Ir. Mason was the agent of the Bagg Corporation, and a man of large.heart and excellent feelings. He was a little eccentric in some of his ways. He had views and opinions of his own think' ing; and perhaps that was what made, him seem so odd to some people. He had found William Taylor in a store tying dp bundles for twenty dol lars'.! month. He' had taken a fancy to him, .ami knowing him to be a prompt and correct accountant', industrious and attentive to business, and of excellent character, he had given him his pres ent situation. AVilliam had been mar ried over a year then, and was the fa- ther' of a little boy. Three hundred dollars a year looked like great wages to William. So he took a better house, put a few articles of neat furniture into it;- opened accounts with the butcher, and grocer, the baker, and the keeper of the livery stable, On his present salary, he made up his mind that he could live handsomely; and once or twice a week he took Ellen ride, ne was entirely devoted to her, and she enjoyed riding so much that it never occurred to him to count the cost. Mr. Mason, a careful man, did count the cost, and, made up his mind that William was a.little too fast. His sus picions were confirmed by the livery stable keeper, who came one day to en quire if the corporation owed William anything. Others had asked the same question. They did not say much, but enough for Mr. Mason to understand that his protege was In debt. Only a few of the employees on the corporation were paid quarterly. On the first day.of .lanuary, as Mr.. Mason went to the, .factory just :fore eight 'clock, he saw the deputy Sheriff standing at the gate. He was waiting there, probably, so that' he could rush in and Serve his writ upon the corpora tion, before the employees were paid. Mr. Mason thoughtof William when he saw the sheriff. So he went into the oflice, opened the safe, took out some money, and with the pay-roll under his arm left the place. Just as our hero was putting on his hat to go out, Mr. Mason entered his little parlor. "Here William, are aeventy-five dol lars, your quarter's salary. Write your name on the pay-roll," said Mr. "Ma son. "Yes, sir; but " ".Never, mind; sign your name." "What does this mean, sir? I hope "Xothing of the sort. There, that ill do. Pleasant morning, Mrs. Tay lor." "Beautiful, sir." Mr. Mason took the pay-roll under bis arm again and departed. William was astonished, and so was his wife. It looked mysterious. Why Mr. Mason do it? They- could not it to up to of imagine.- On his way .over, AVilliam paid the butcher, the baker and grocer, and had twenty dollars left, which would just pay the doctor's bill. As the clock truck eight the porter opened the gate. and he took his place at the desk: Mr. Mason sat by the stove, reading the Boston paper. The first person that entered the pub side, of the counting-room was the deputy sheriff. The head clerk had just taken out the pay-roll, and prepared to pay off tne employees. The sheriff read the writ. " Who ?" asked Mr. Kason . " Spike rerstu ,Bagg Corporation all money due to Wm.;Taylor," replied the heriil. "We don't owe Taylor anything," replied the agent, turning to his paper alu. "Don't you ?" " Show me the pay-roll." The head clerk turned to the roll, and his surprise found William's signa ture there. "Very well;" nodded the sheriff, "I thought I1 was soon enough." Of course Spike -was mad when the sheriff reported to him. He was con fident that, the business had not been conducted luJ 'the usual maimer at the oflice; so ho decided to see Mason nt once. That, gentleman received .him very kindly, and took him into his private oflice. " You have been playing some game upon me," said Mr. Spike, a little ex cited. "We don't play games," replied the agent, with dignity. " Did you not pay Taylor before the usual time, so as to help him cheat me out of my bill?" " No, sir." " Hut he' was paid off before the of fice was opened." " He was." "Well; what did you deny it for just now?" '' " I did not." "Yes you did." "Be civil, Mr. Spike, or I' shall have nothing to say to you. I say we did not pay Mr. Taylor before' the'tlmc, to help lilm to cheat you." '" I've got a bill against him." " That Is your lookout." "And tho law allows me to collect it." And I don't object." ' He won't pay me. He's a scoun drel and a swindler." " There we differ. He is a young man of. excellent character. If there any, swindling about It, you have swin died him." "I never got a dollar out of him "You will; he is honest, and will pay you." "I doubt it, If he has you to keep him out of difliculty." "I shallndeavor to keep him out trouble." "You shall." " How much does he owe you ?" "Thirty dollars." "And you trusted for fifty?" "Sixty." " Very well. Taylor is honest. He means to pay all his debts. Now is It right to lock up nearly all his salary for weeks, perhaps months," "But he don't mean to pay." "Has he told you so." " NOj'but he asked me to wait, which is the same thing." " Which only proves his honesty If he intended to swindle you, he would not have gone-to see you about it. This debt and credit business is all wrong, Mr. Spike; and if I had the making of "the laws, I would not allow a debt to be collected by a legal pro cess, unless an intention to tleirauu could be shown, or fairly supposed." "numph! You would let us be cheat ed out of our property." " I would let you cheat yourself out of your property if you choose to do so. Look at it; here is a young man on a salary of three hundred dollars a year. Iou let him horses; you trust him along for two or three months, and thus encourage him to spend his inon cy upon what he cannot afford, and which, if he had to pay for it on the spot, he would not have. Biding is a useless luxury. You have led this young man along till.be has run up a bill of thirty dollars one tenth of his s;dary for a year. 2Jbw, do you suppose if you had made him pay for his horse when he had him, he would or could, have ridden n quarter part of what he has ?" "I suppose not; but that is his look out.?' And yours to get your pay. Now, f he had paid your bill to-day, he could not have paid his butcher or his baker, probably, and they would refuse to trust him, and then perhaps his family might sutler." "No business to have a family." "Nay, I commend him for that; and he can support them decently, if any one would teach him the valueof money, A, B and C trust him, and he lives be yond his means." " That is his look out, and not mine." " It there were no laws by which you could collect this debt, Taylor would have been better off to-day. The cred system, properly restrained, is well enough ; but I do not like to see a young man placed in your power, perhaps hampered for life because you desire to do a large business which induces yon run up long bills." " numpt" " Mr. Spike, give me your receipt for this bill, and I will pay it." "And the costs?" " No; only the face of the bill." "But I shall have to pay the Sher " " Very well, you may pay him. Tay lor shall not." Spike thought, and concluded to ac cept Mr. Mason's proposition. John Randolph said that "pay as you go, is the philosopher's stone, Mr. Spike: When Taylor rides any more make him pay on the spot." shall," and Spike leltnot very well satisfied. But William did not ride any more, and a few days after, Mr. Mason ery kindly pointed out to him the phil osopher's stone. The young man owned all Mr. Mason had suspected. A few days after, a letter came from Aunt Hannah. The old lady was very sorry the young folks had got into trouble, as glad they called upon her, enclosed check for five hundred dollars for them commence anew, and entreated them not to get trusted for anything. They followed all this good advice, and William and Helen are now models thrift. A Flock of Sheep Capture a Store. Thirty or forty sheep were being driven down Walnut street yesterday noon, when a leader, a sagacious look ing old ram saw his reflection in one of the large plate-glass windows ofMilo Dodd & Co's. Safe store. Without instant's hesitation the old fellow- lowered his head and started for the glass full tilt. Just as he reached it he gave a tremendous jump, evidently ex pecting to meet with allvely resistance. His expectations were dashed, as was the glass, it being smashed to atoms, while the ram started on a run to the back part of the store. The drove see ing their leader disappearing, Imme diately followed in his wake, and the entire number jumped through the win dow, and very nearly knocked down and trampled upon two or three em ployes. Amazed at the sudden and startling attack they fled from the store, leaving the drove in full possession. Several of the sheep were badly cut by broken glass, and bled over the floor; bile the blood, the broken glass from the window, and an overturned and qroken show-case, gave the appearance of being a total wreck. It was nearly an hour before the sheep could be driv en out and order restored. The drove belonged to Mr. Mullhall. ui in Addition and Subtraction. This game will be lound very inter esting to croquet players, and even to those who don't play croquet.

A lady recently died in Lucas county, Ohio, says the Toledo Blade, whose hus band, having started to Philadelphia with aU the money he could raise, some eighteen years ago, did not return, was not heard from, and was finally suppos- ed to he dead. She, however, was slow to believe this, and not until nine years were passed could she be induced, after much urging on the part of family and friends, to marry a wealthy gentleman of the neighborhood. Several years went by, when one night her eldest son (the only child by her first husband) came in and reported having seen a strange man near the house, It was ru- moretl, too, in the neighborhood that a stranger had been inquiring about the lady in question, whom he spoke of bv her former name. The husband and wife heard of these rumors, which had been associated with the lost husband's name; she was troubled, but her bus- baud treated. the juattexlightly. Three years now passed, when the wife siul- denly received a dispatch from New- castle, Pennsylvania, urging her to come there at once if she would see her rightful husband alive. She went, in company with the second husband, and next day, ministered to by her, the first husband died in her arms. He explain ed how, on reaching Philadelphia so long ago, and losing everything in the speculation for which he visited that city, he had embarked in a AA'est India adventure, previously writing a letter, which she did not receive, to Ids wife. The voyage was disastrous, the vessel was wrecked, and he only escaped with his life.

Singular Accident—An Old Blast Explodes after Twenty Blast Explodes after Twenty-Two Years' Neglect. The Lexington, Ky., Press savs: The dreadful accident of a few days' since, hich may result In the death of two unfortunate men, call to mind an oc- currence of a similar character which took place some years ago, on the Lex- ington and Harrodsburgpike. Itseems that to construct the winding road down the hill near the Kentucky llivcr, blast- ing was necessary to assist in the re- nioval of the rock. On one occasion the blast failed to explode. The workmen raided it for some time, and, as it was finally determined to widen the road at that place after it should be completed its length , the old blast was altogeth- neglected. After a lapse of twenty-one J cars the long delayed Improvement was com- menced. The old blast was forgotten; orkmen set to work to drill new holes near where the old one had been made, Three men were thus engaged one day, hen suddenly the rocks were torn asunder. One Gonnlcy, standing on a loose rock, was thrown fifty feet into the air, and was saved from death only falling upon an elevated bank. Ihe other two were blown down the hill- side. None were killed, but all were badly woundcil, Gonnlcy losing an eye. The explosion of neglected blasts is by no means uncommon, and some method ought to Iks adopted to render I tho power In such cases non-explosive, and thus protect human life from such terrible risks. It would seem to us that some chemical preparation might be in- ented to answer the purpose we have mentioned.
