A Scolding and What
Came of It.
Came of It. A Story of Hot Weather.
BY ELIZABETH LAWRENCE.
The broiling sun'' poured down over
the town and eved'the shady fillet with
the elm avenue 'was breathlessly hot.
Inside the Weston'a pld fashioned frame
house, however, there was a, sense of
freshness and the; broad matted hall
with cane seats, and Imge bowl of pond
lilies on the marble table, was a place
where, If there wai' any' coolness to be
had, you were sure to And it. Mrs,
Weston and the gU"3,were all tip stairs
in the white frilled dressing; iacketsand
peticoats, flitting In and out of theiarge
siiuueu ucuroouis, ojiu uaciwwaru auu
forward across" the -"upper hall, putting
the finishing touches to their prepara
tions for n journeytwhleh the girls had
caused tiielr fatlierto substitute for their
usual quiet stay 4t&some place anion
the hills not more than two hours from
Jlr. Weston was a successful lawyer,
devoted to his profession, and never so
happy as when he was going in the
beaten track home to a one o'clock din
tier, home again to a six o'clock tea, out
again to his ofilce at the latest. When
he was a young man, he had been half
over the world, and he knew his own
country pretty thoroughly east of the
Mississippi, but to his thinking no spot
so delightful as the elm shaded city
where he had lived nearly all bis life.
It wasiiotalareefamilv. There were
only the two girls at home and one son,
James Watson, who was married and
ived in Xew York. Jenny and Lily
were as unlike as possible Disappear
ance. Jenny, whom her father called
Jenny Wren, was rather short and quite
plump with brown hair and eyes, rosy
cheeks aud a cherry-liuned mouth
which seemed to laugh much more than
most people's, and fortunately could
how lovely white teeth, and a sweet
bright, good-tempered expression which
quite made you forget a very pug nose.
Jliiy was the beauty of the family, and
Jenny took immense pride and delight
n her tall, graceful figure, abundant
golden hair, pure satin-like skin with
the faintest tinge of piuk In the cheeks,
and large, clear, violet-blue eyes. "My
tall white Lily," she used to call her
sister who had sometimes a look of frag
ile delicacy to alarm one, and, though
not ill, was never very strong, and was
taken care of at home as if she had been
a piece of fine old china.
Both the girls were like their mother
from whom Jenny had got her plump
rounded, figure and Lily her golden
hair aud violet eyes and delicate straight
'.' Come, girls," said Sirs. Weston, as
the black laudress with her face shining
like ebony brought up a great pile of
inowy whiteness hot from the iron,
'you must leave packing these things
till afternoon, and get ready for dinner
now, for you know how yourfather dis
likes waiting. I do wish he would car
ry an umbrella when the sun is so hot.
'm always afraid of bis getting sun-
This Is the last day of it mother,
and before we get back the weather
ill be cool. Aren't you glad we're go
ig to-morrow. Think' of the White
Mountains and Mount Desert and Ki-
asara !" and Jennj- gave a little squeal
Any letters, papa?" asked Lily, as
Mr. Weston came into the parlor a few
"Here's one for your mother from
James. I hope there's nothing amiss
ith Fanny or the children." Mrs.
cston opened iicr letter and read
iloud : "Could you or one of the girls
come to Fanny ? She has been in bed a
eek witli what the doctor calls a bil
ious intermittent fever, and though he
assures me there's no present cause for
alarm, he says perfect quiet is necessary,
and that she can't get well while she
lies iu bed worrying about the children
aud servants, and they keep running to
iier about every tritle. She needs some
one to take care oil' her hands, and of
course her sister ought to come, but she
lias arranged to start for Newport to-
lay witli a party of friends, and says
lie can't possibly break up all their
plans. How can she possibly go and
leave Fanny is more than I can ttnder-
tand; but perhaps' if she came she
ouldn't be of much use as she thinks
more of her own comfort than any
thing else. Poor Fannie worries about
poor little Jamie who is rather fretful
ith his teetii and does not seem happy
Here was a disappointment for some
body. Much talking and crying follow
ed since each of the three contended
that she was to be the one to give up the
pleasant journey, but Jennie carried the
day, appealing to her father to look at
her mother and sister, who were both
evidently needing mountain air and say
if it wasn't simple common sense that
she should go to Fanny ; she who was
perfectly well, and strong enough for
anything. Dear little thing! she did
look radiant with health, energy and
kindliness as she stood by her tall fa
ther with her bright, eager face turned
up to his.
Of course Mrs. Weston and Lily pro
tested against it, but Jenny was Inex
orable and further settled the matter by
writing a letter to James telling him to
meet her at the station in Xew York the
After dinner she proceeded to re-ar-
auge the trunks, without a shade of
ill-humor, separating from Lily's all
her own pretty, new things. She held
up a white muslin all puffings and loop-
Ings and Valenciennes and cherry rib
bons, saying as the did so", what n.pity
it was that Lily couldn't wear her dres
ses, for surely she wouldn't need this
sort of thing while she was nursing
Her mother and sister declared that
all their pleasure was gone, and they
lionld not enjoy any thing without her
but Jennie Insisted that would be treat-
ng father very shabbily and after all
she would go some time. Sho would
make father take them all again next
The next morning Mr. Watson took
her to the station, and put her Into the
train an hour before the White Moun
tain party was to start, and she nodded
brightly to him from the window as the
train moved oil', her sunny llico bearing
no trace of disappointment at giving up
Sho felt repaid when she saw James'
pleasure at meeting her. Poor fellow!
he looked quite worn out with his faint
ly cares, and .reported Fanny much
weaker that morning. The streets were
not attractive as they drove from the
station to Forty-Severtth Street. Hie
noonday sun was absolutely sickening,
and Jenny was thankful when they
reached their own particular "brown
stone frout," and James unlocked the I
door for her with a coutented, 'Well
I've brought a treasure at last."
Fanny had only been upstairs a week
and Jenny marvelled to see what
change had 'come over the usually pret
ty homelike house for waut'of -the mis
tress' eye and hand. The hall table was
thick witli dust, the parlor carpet litter
ed with fallen blossoms from withered
bouquets in the vases, the piano all over
dust, too, and the chairs awry, while
the Gliding doors, opened into the din
ing-room,- disclosed to view art untidy
breakfast, table still standing, while
swarms of flies, were rejoicing in the
glaring sunlight which poured in
through the unshaded windows.
"It all looks, .forlorn enough," said
James helplessly, "I don't know what's
the reason. But come, I'll take you up
to Fancy at once." And they mounted
the stairs to' the second story front room
where poor Fanny lay In bed, eagerly
holding out two thin hands, with a
smile of welcome on her pale face which
went straight to Jenny's heart.
'-' Here's a sight for sore eyes," said
James triumphantly. "Xow, Fanny,
we shall have everything going on well
Shall I order any tiling for you f I must
be going down town. I leave you iu
good hands to-day," and James walked
off, looking brighter than he had done
since Fanny's illness.
Jenny took off her things and got her
self into a cool white morning dress as
quickly as possible, and began to make
Fanny more comfortable by setting her
room to rights, while Fanny looked on
well pleased at her dextrous way of
dodging things, each quick, decided
movement working wonders, and all
without noise, so different from Bridget's
shambling way of running backwards
and forwards aud getting nothing done
Between James and Bridget the room
was In deplorable confusion, the dress
ing table strewn with bottles, glasses,
and spoons, and the contents of Fanny's
jewel case scattered over several chairs,
where they had been lcltby little Jamie
that morning, when he had them to play
with to appease his fearful howls aftera
fall. Poor little fellow ! he was only a
year and a half old, and sadly missed
his mother's care, while blue-eyed baby
Lily reigned supreme in the nursery
and usurped his share of Ann's ser
vices. "My dear, If you hadn't come to the
rescue, all my things would have been
destroyed," said Fanny. "The other
day Bridget made a mustard plaster in
one of my best embroidered pocket
handkerchiefs, and when I found it out
she said, "Sure the doctor told me to
put it In fine muslin. This room needs
weeping dreadfully, but I couldn't bear
have it done this morning, for she
moves that 1 only long to get out of the
waj And, Jenny, won't you brush my
air for me? Bridget makes my head
ache so, and won't you see that the
children are properly dressed when they
ake up, and do go Into the kitchen aud
see vfliat sort of dinner cook lias got up
for, James and George," (George Leroy
was Fanny's brother and James part
ner, aud lived with them); "And, oh!
Jenny the doctor said I was to have beef
tea once in two hours, but I can't.take
the stuff cook makes."
Jenny didn't wonder as she saw' the
uninviting greasy mess standing on the
table. She put away the stray jewelry!
hut and fastened a creaking blind
hlch kept'letting in a. swaying ray of
sunlight across the wall just opposite
the bed, gathered the sticky glasses and
poons and spoiled napkins together,
and ran down stairs with them, coming
back with a few bright verbenas she had
found in the yard. These she arranged
a little table, and then brushed and
combed, Fanny's thick, light hair so
gently, and with such magnetic lingers,
that by the time she gotitbradedinto
two long tails, Fanny was nearly
asleep. Then leaving things In order,
Jenny ran up stairs for a peep at her
pets, whom she heard beginning to stir
about, after their nap, in the nursery
overhead. Dora, the eldest, was three
years old, and rememoered Aunt Jen
ny, and came gladly forward to be
kissed and petted, but Jamie and the
baby both "made strange" as the nurse
said, and Jenny could only hope for a
better acquaintance iu future, as Jamie
hid his rosy face in Ann's skirts when
ever she looked at him, and Lily pucker
ed up her little mouth ominously when
ever she tried to take her.
She couldn't stay long with them,
however, for Fanny's beef-tea was on
her mind, and she went down to the
kitchen to see about it. Fresh beef-tea,
every one knows, can't be made in a
minute, and meantime the doctor's or
ders were not being carried out. Fan
ny had had none that morning, and
ought not to be left without it any
longer., What was to lie done? Sud
denly Jenny remembered the "extract
beer' of "Sanitary commission" days
aud writing down "the name on a slip of
paper' sent the house maid to the near
est chemist's in search of It. She came
back in a few minutes with the little
packet of queer looking, leathery, brown
stuff, and In .an incredibly short time
Jenny had a bit of It chipped up line,
dissolve in boiling water and seasoned
ith pepper and salt, and beheld with
satisfaction a cup of smoking beef-tea
guiltless of grease, which she triumph
antly carried up stairs, Inwardly calling
down blessings on the head of the man
ho invented the extract.
Poor Fanny could not have taken
much If It had been nectar, for fever
time was coining and Jenny was really
darmcd as she saw the pale face getting
crimson, felt the scorching heat of the
hands, and she tried everything she
could think of, without success, to alle-
iate the racking headache aud dread
ful restlessness. Sho seemed so very 111
that Jenny longed anxiously for the
doctor's afternoon visit, and when he
evidently thought her worse, for he
looked grave as he said "More fever
than yesterday," and added something
about "typhoid symptoms," Jenny fol
lowed him down stairs and asked If he
thought there was any danger! "Xo
immediate danger," said he, "but Mrs.
Weston requires 'very great care, and
must be kept perfectly quiet;" and he
left Jenny feeling qnlle weighed down
Mindful of the "coming man," how
ever, she rang the parlor bell for Bridget
and made her carry -away the withered
flowers and bring the dust-pan and
brush to the littered' carpet, while she
told her about the dinner-table arrange
ments in a few clear, simple words.
Fanny had an irritable way of talkln,
to her servants, constantly finding fault
and giving confused orders which made
a stupid, well-meaning person like
Bridget unable to do anything right.
while Jenny's sweet manlier was so re
assuring and quieting- that people were
always able to do their very best for
The weary afternoon wore away at
last, and precisely at C o'clock, as Jen

James and George's well-known voices,
George was a tall, handsome man
with great strength and splendid cour
age, which had been well proved in the
battles before Richmond, but so shy that
Fauny used to say she believedhc would
rather face a rebel battery than a room
full 6f strangers. He was such-ado-
mestic, home-loving fellow that James
and Fanny, finding that he spent all his
evenings at their house and seemed to
be very homeless and forlorn at a hotel
had proposed his coming to live with
them, much to his comfort and satisfac
tion. He was1 uncommonly fond of chil
dren, and Fanny's little ones, adored
"Uncle George," who had the sweetest
temper In the world, and had never been
known to be cross. He had plenty ol
intellect and could say something worth
hearing, provided he was with people
he knew well and liked, but his shyness
made him do himself injustice in so
ciety; He thought Jenny the sweetest
girl in the world and his favorite castle
in the air was a pretty house of his own
presided over by a bright, sunny-tem
pered little wife with rosy cheeks, brown
eyes and a saucy little turn up nose. But
whether he would ever have the courage
to tell her so was really a matter o
doubt; for the more he thought it over,
the more impossible it secerned to him
that Jenny could ever like him well
enough to say "yes ;" and I really think
he would have been thankful iflikc the
Parees witli their prayers, he could
have deputed some one else to do It for
Fanny has guessed his secret but wise
ly kept her own counsel, only determin
ug that, should matters ever go so far
a3 to need one little friendly push to set
them all right, tier's should be the hand
to give It. Little did she think what
was to be her part in George's love-
Poor Fanny! The long list of her
noble qualities did not include cither
patience or self-control, and as the
weary days went by and the novelty of
Jenny's presence wore off, she began to
find fault even with her favorite sister-
in-law, aud although, If she had been
asked, she would have said that there
never was such a dear good nurse, she
yet scolded at everything she did in a
way that was very hard to bear.
Fortunately for her, Jenny's patience
was inexhaustible, and she was a gen
erous sold who would have scorned the
meanness of losing temper with a sick
person or a child. But if patience nev
flagged, strength sometimes did, and
week of days of incessant activity
and nights of broken rest had made
her look much palcr'and thinner.
It was a sultry morning, and she had
just finished getting Fanny ready for
the doctor's visit, and was putting away
some things, when, in some unaccount
able way, she let fall a goblet on the
hearth with a loud crash.
" Jenny, I can't think how you can
so awkward!'' burst outFanny,star
tled by the. noise. "I declare, you are
just as bad as Bridget. I do wisli you
would go away and let me have some
It was the feather that broke the
camel's back, and poor Jenny, who had
been up two nights, burst into tears.
Xone of the Westons had been
brought up on a "system of weeps,"and
mortified and ashamed, Jenny hurried
out of the room, muttering something
about "back In a minute," and rushing
past her own room, which was in the
chaos of "sweeping day," she flew down
stairs into the cool, darkened parlor,
and throwing herself into a corner of
the sofa, sobbing as If her heart would
break. Her violent efforts to stop cry
ing seemed all of no avail, and she was
horrified at the thought of the doctor's
coming and finding Fanny excited by
her absurd behavior.
" A pretty nurse, indeed," said she to
herself. "What would mother say to
this? But at any rate George and
James were out of the way."
There she lay, poor little thing, witli
her hands over her face and her head
hidden iu a great soft sofa-pillow, only
one crimson ear and the shining brown
braids visible, and the pretty shoulders
heaving with sobs.
What was that little ear about that it
gave Its owner no warning of a foot
step, and she thought herself all alone
until, oh horor! George's voice sounded
close at hand, saying, with the deepest
concern, "Why, Jennie, what has hap
pened ? Is any tiling dreadful the mat
ter? Xo bad news Irom the travelers,
hope. .Can't I do anything foryou?"
Can any body explain why Jenny
cared as much for what George thought
her that, of all the people in the
world he was the last whom she wished
sec at that particular moment? Hys
terical, fanciful, nervous, she knew he
would think her just what she hated
most. And there was no escape, for
turning ever so little on the pillow, she
saw with one eye, the tall figure close
beside her, the fine face full of the ten
" Oil George," she faltered, "you will
despise me, you will think me a perfect
fool. Xo, nothing dreadful is the mat
ter, only Fauny was a little cross and
I was so tired."
And the sobs came on again worse
than ever, mingled with a disparlng,
"Oh do go away I am so ashamed 1
thought you had gone out."
Instead of complying with tills re
quest, George drew up a chair close to
the sofa, and, sitting down close by the
heap qf frilled cambric, said in a sweet,
solemn, tender voice:' "Despise you?
Jenny, I love you better than all the
world liesides, and If you could care for
me to marry me, I should be the happi
est man living. Will you try?"
Oh, potent remedy! stronger than all
the sal volatilo or valerian In all the
chemists' shops' In Xew York! As lie
waited the sobs ceased, one plump, dim
pled hand stole into his, and from the
depths of the velvet cushion, a soft lit
tle "yes" rose to his listening car.
We leave our readers to imagine the
talk that followed. Enough to say tiiat

I lie aggregate Interest at these rates

Tlie statement that the Administra-

was temporarily interrupted, owing to

Geneva will soon remove the last ves
tige of the distrust to which the Ala
bama trouble gave rise. The circum
stances will then be as favorable as
could lie wished for throwing our new
bonds again into the market; and with
the bright prospect of prolonged peace
aud increasing material prosperity
Inch is now before us, we have the
best reasons for believing that the loan
ill be rapidly taken. This expectation
so confidently entertained by the ofli-
cers of the Treasury Department that
effort will undoubtedly be made
ithiu three or four months to put not
only the new 3 per cents., but also the
, per cent, bonds, upon the market.
The power of the Government to bor-
row a small fraction over 5 per cent,
even iu this country, where the rates of
nterestare in frcneral much hhrher
than in Europe, is sulticiently indicated
the prices of our present bonds in
the Xew York market. Thus on Au-
ust 10 the Ten-forty 3 per cents sold in
ew York at a rate so slisrhtlv below
:ir in gold as to yield to Investors only t0
fraction over 5W per cent, on
their actual cost, and during the last six
of 1871 the same bonds sold at tr
average rate which would yield only
trifle over Sij per cent., (more exactly
14 100). The critical character of
our relations with Great Britain caused
slight depression in the Drice. durins
the spring and early summer, but the
tendency is now agaiu upward as to
price, Involving a corresponding fall in
the realized rate of interest.
