Willie's always with her now, and May ' Growing nearer to her every day." i There 'Tras "unusual stir imtnr the senrahts ef "Lindley' Grange." The windows of the' great house were all open, and through them could be seen busy hands festooning garlands on the walls and over the painting's, w hile rare exotics were arranged In the. antique vases. Many months had passed since "The Grange" had been decorated with flow ers. The last time it was with flowers all pale, none of brilliant hue, for she tli at had been once the brightest flower blooming there, lay faded, cold and dead. Twelve months had passed, and the tiny forms had ever since been deck ed with some badge telling of their loss. The motherless ones were that day to ast aside their garb of sorrow. Yes, a new mother was coming, and no re minder of past must cloud her joy. JiurseCu minings was gazing with a frowning brow on the great prepara tions going on. Closer. to her fond heart she clasped the babe, and drew little Willie from the drawing-room door, in to which he was peeping with wonder ing eyes, back into a cozy, beautiful 11 beyond into "mamma's own room." And there the devoted woman stood with her nursling before the pic tured face of her whose vacant place was that day to be filled by another. That sacred room was already occupied by another one, a child whose heart needed no torturing. Hay had thrown herself on the sofa, her sweet face hid den amid tuecueions, as if she wanted to shut out from ber eye and ear. the ghte and sounds of merry making. Sire was' old ' enough to feel all that Nurse Cummings would fain " have taught the younger ones. Springing up, she stood with them before their mother's portrait, and with her little hands folded over almost bursting heart he sobbed forth : - "Though your place in papa's heart and home be given to aiiothor,. dear mamma, your children will never never, let any other make them feel your loss the less, and never fill your place in their hearts." bMy own darling! Thank Heaven you are so like yonr dear mamma. He can not forget her while you are by. ' But come, dry yonr tears, my precious. I ould have you look as pretty as can be, and that will remind him, even at his new wife's side, of her whose beau ty none could surpass. If this one is good and gentle, she will remind him of one that was better, aye, than the best that can live. And if she is proud, and has a will of her own, O then he will ever be thinking of tlia one that only knew the pride of being his ! We ill not sorrow, my May! Mamma can not be forgotten, even by him." "Nurse, nurse, where are your chil dren? Come! tie on their ribbons ; you hare no lime to lose. Their papa and "' The word was nnsaid. Even the mer ry tongue of the housemaid could not give that name to another, a stranger. The company will be here iu fifteen minutes." But that was time sufficient to smooth Willie's raven hair, catch back the gol den curls that fell over May's broad, white brow, wipe the traces of teais from the blue eyes, and tie on the bright ribbons. The children were ready. In another moment the roll of the chaise was heard approaching the house. The servants gathered around, all anxious to catch a glimpse of the new mistress to welcome her, the master thought to decide if she was worthy to fill the place of one to whose mem ory they were all devoted. All stood smilling but Xurse Cum mings; she remained iu tho drawing room with her little ones. May sprang forward to throw her arms around her father, who, hastily kissing her, still clasping her with one arm, drew her forward and said : "Welcome your mother, my daugh ter." The arms that had been raised to clasp him were powerless then. Pale and trembling she stood, and If any cry had escaped her litis it would have been the cry : "Xo, no; not y mother!" "Dear May," whispered a voice clear and sweet, and the child was pressed to lie bosom of the new mother before the frown that was gathering had settled on the father's brow. '- "Fapa! papa!" cried out Willie, and the handsome five years old boy was caueht to the other's heart. Then turning with him, he said : .' . "Kiss mamma, Willie." I ' But ere the words bad left his lips. Willie lisped: . i. ' "I can't kiss mamma. She is dead. I've got no mamma now." An angry flush mantled George Lind ley's brow, and he looked sternly to wards the nurse. But a gentle touch was on bis arm, and a gentletone whis pering: j V J "Give them time. I will win their love." ' i " T; ' And turning again to May she said "You are like your mamma. May. knew her well, and loved her very dear ly. We will talk of her by and by. You can tell of your remembrance, and I of her childhood days." . Then May looked op for the first time to see, not the new mother, or her father's wife, but the friend of her mother 'a atriy ye.th.- : at.' . The right chord bad been touched. But oh 1 it was lonz In yielding. For the jealou3 nurse watched and baffled every effort to win the children's hearts. Still patiently striving, the gentle step mother watched and toiled, sometimes growing almost hopeless of ever win ning the war ward hearts. With a bitter spirit, Nurse Cnmmings saw the happiness of the master. Never, in the old time, did she ever see him as then. Never had she heard bis laugh ringing through those halls. He would smile gently, sweetly, on his child-like wife; and nurse eotild not censure aught he did.. He was ever kind, atten tive and considerate ; but withal a shade of sadness dwelt within. "And with the new wife he was so very different! a happy, joyous man. A new life seemed opened to him. - And it was that that made Nurse Cummings strive so anx iously against the power that had chang ed the master so. ; Iu the depths of the nurse's heart she felt how powerful were the weapons she fought against r -: patient, untiring love; a true, noble heart. Often May would say :,.....': "How very beautiful she is!"' . ,Yes; Margaret was beautiful queen' ly beautiful. ; And proudly .George Lindley presented ber to his guests, many of whom marvelled that a man could love two women so entirely dis similar: the first a fairy child, frail and timid ; the other all dignity and grace. "Will they never love me ? Oh! how snail l win my children's hearts ? 7 mur mured Margaret. She knew not that the longing thought in her heart had escaped her lips, and that her husband's ear bad canglit it, "My noble, patient wife! It is not your children's hearts that are bard to win; it is their counsellor's misused power. Cummings' devotion to their mother makes her very, jealous of an other's winning even a portion of their love. Oh ! if they, if she only knew all!" "We cannot censure her loyalty, even though we deplore its effects. How spirited Willie is ! and how like you ! I yearn so constantly to pillow his head on my bosom to sleep, but he will not let me. I think I loye him best. How he would comfort me in your absence! But I will not think of that" "But I must, love. Many things I must look to, for your happiness and our children's. You will keep up a brave heart. A trip across the ocean ie not much nowadays, and I shall soon be back." Days sped rapidly on. ' On the next one George Lindley was to sail ou a business trip to Europe. The children were gathered in "ma ma's room." Willie was kneeling at nurse's side, repeating his infant pray- The lather entered, waited until Wil lie had finished, and then he drew him within his arms, and caused May to sit beside him, and said : ' "My darlings, you know to-morrow I shall go from you. I have much to say and nay, Cummings, I wish you to hear me too. Sit down. I will tell you little story, which you may under stand too, Willie." "Many year ago a little girl was left. without the love and protection of ei ther parent. None of kindred were near the orphan child. But kind friends sought and drew her away from the home of sorrowful remembrance,' to one where she was surrounded by love and sympathy. " "There she found a companion so gentle, so ever watchful for her happi ness, that soon the little saddened heart grew light and joyous again. Years passed on, and the friends grew to be maidens, both very beautiful. ' 1 One with sunny hair, and eyes as blue as yours, my May. ' A fa'.r, frail, being, that must be cherished with the tenderest care. ' '? "The other was older, graver, with raven bair and eyes, dark and full of beauty. It was difficult to decide which of the two was to be admired. "It was when the fairy-like maiden was of sixteen years that I knew her first, ' A perfect child of nature, full of love, confiding, and with winning little ways, she was. I was fond of the beau tiful child, humored her sweet will, and watched her carefully tenderly, as if she had been my little sister. But for the other maiden my heart glowed with all the strongest, purest devot ion a man can feel such as be can give 6ut to one. That he gave to Mar garet. But she gently put it by; for she had discovered that the hope which filled ber heart, lived -in that of her foster-sister. "80 she stole away from her home, giving not even a partingword, for fear her strength should fail in that trial. Such a sacrifice she made ! giving all theJoy and taking all the sorrow away iu her solitude, that she might save her friend that the tender heart that had been so saddened In its childhood days, might not, in its early womanhood, be stricken again. "Then it happened that the gift that Margaret laid aside was given to your mother. Then she became my wife. "Now, my little May, you know who this dear friend was Margaret, who loved your mother so. "Do not my children owe her love? "So closely did she guard her sacri fice, that your mother never dreamed that her joy was gained through her friend's sorrow. But now she is In a laud where joy is complete. And should you mar the happiness of one who has known enough of pain? "It is a debt of gratitude you owe my wife. , And, Cummings, you too, can add your share. You loved your lady truly. I cannot ask for such. But do not tutor the children's hearts except to love and duty." Margaret sat alone in her own room A deeper shadow had crept over heart than she hsd known for months. '- On the morrow her husband was to leave home. She had failed in all ni attempts to win his children's love; not one of those little hearts would return her the smallest portion of all the love she gave them. Her heart was aching bitterly. A low knock at the door aroused her, and in answer to her "Come in!" Nurse Cummings entered, for the first time since that room had been occupied by its present mistress. By the hand she held Willie, and drawing him forward, she said : "Willie has come 4o fetch you into 'mamma's room.' His father is there. and May wants you too.' ' It -was oaly-e few words, but Mar garet knew the long-fought battle was over. - Love bad crowned her with the sweetest victory ever woman felt. Cnmmnigs never did anything by halves. She opened the door to nsher Margaret in, and ere May had embrac ed and welcomed her coming, the moth er's chair was drawn out, and Cum mings said: "The babe will sleep now, if 'mam ma' will sing to him." 'Yes, sing, love , his angel mother's song," said the happy father. And as the sweet, low voice, filled with tones of love and thanksgiving, sang that lul laby, methinks that the mother's spirit, as a guardian angel near, heard the song, and entreated Heaven's choicest blessings on her who fills the place of mother so nobly, lovingly, justly, to the motherless ones. . An American Bonaparte. The Pittsburgh Commercial says "The speculations which the death of the Emperor Napoleon have excited concerning the possible successor to the French throne, should the Empire ever again be re-established, lend a new and curious interest to the remarkable his tory of the venerable Mrs. Elizabeth Patterson, of Baltimore, wife of Jerome Bonaparte, the younger brother of the first Napoleon. In 1803, Jerome was sent by .his brother, then First Consul of France, to sea in a man of war, which, in the course of its cruise, touched at Baltimore. He was introduced to Miss Patterson, who was the daughter of a wealthy merchant, and possessed of great personal beauty and attractions. He proposed for licr hand, was accepted, and the marriage was celebrated iu due form by the Catholic Bishop of that diocese. ben toe news or the mar riage, reached Napoleon it threw him into s paroxysm of rage. He was then contemplating his accession to the throne of France as Emperor, and was desirous of strengthening himself with the royal families of the continent through the marriage of his relatives. Under a law passed during his consu late, his consent was required for the marriage of all the members of the Bonaparte family. He, therefore, for bade bis brother bringing bis wife into France, and she was left in Eng land. She never saw her husband after that. The Emperor declared the mar riage void, and Jerome was soon after wards married to the daughter of the King of Wurtemberg, and placed on the throne of Westphalia. His first wife returned to Baltimore with ber son, who had been born in England. He died in 1870, leaving two children, Col. Jerome Bonaparte, who graduated at West Point, but subsequently became an officer in the French army, being treated by Louis Napoleon as a near relative of the Imperial family; and Charles Joseph Bonaparte, at present a law student at Havard College. Tbeir grandmother, who is now in her nine tieth year, has at all times watched the political condition of France, with in tense interest, freely declaring the right of the eldest to the throne in the event of the death of the Emperor and the Prince Imperial ; and she now expres ses her confident belief of the success, hi the not distant future, of the dreams and aspirations to which she has per sistently clung for a period of seventy years. It js a strange story, with more elements of pathos in it than would seem to lie upon the surface. ed cle to Men Who Win Women. God has so made the sexes that wo men, like children, cling to men lean upon them as though they were supe rior in mind and hotly.

Women, therefore, who have good minds and pure hearts want men to lean upon. Think of tbeir reverenc ing a liar, a drunkard or a libertine. If man would have a woman to do him homage, he must be manly iu every sense; a true gentleman, not after the Chesterfield school, but polite, because his heart is full of kindness to all, who treats her with respect, even deference, because she Is a woman ; who never condescends to say silly things to her, who brings ber to his level, if his above; who is never over anxious to please but always anxious to do right; who has no time to be fri volous with her. Always dignified in speech and act; who never spends too much upon her, never yields to temptation, even if she puts it iu bis way; who is ambitious to make his mark in the world, whether she encour ages him or not, who is not over care ful about dress, always keeping his place of the mini, the head, and never loosing iu Such deportment, with no ble principles, a good mind, energy and industry, will win any woman in flu world who is worth winning.

RUDOLPH. " Mother, I am afraid that Laura Preston has forgotten her promise to come to-day." It was Ada Leigh who spoke, a tall, slender girl with beautiful, blonde curly hair, and large, dreamy blue eyes. She was arranging some flower vases, and glancing occasionally out of the win dow, to look for her expected visitor. " There is Laura now, coming down the lane with Anna." Ada left ber flowers and hastened to meet her. "I was just beginning to despair of your coming. Un ! now glad 1 am to see you." , , "Andtl am very glad to see you again, lou uon t. Know now niucn 1 have missed you." " Not more than I missed you. Laura, was so tired of city life sometimes, and thought if I was alone with you, in some wild, old baunt of ours, I would be contented. Wc must take a stroll to the rocks after dinner." The visitor, Laura Preston, was two years younger than her friend, Ada Leigh. There was a slight resemblance between the two. Hair and complexion were the same, but Laura's eyes-were gray, and she was of a more petite fig ure. . They were firm friends, and not having seen each other for a year, their meeting was joyful. In the afternoon, they started off for the woods, taking with them a volume of Bryant's poems, aud followed by the dog lion. " Where now?" asked old John, who was cutting wood. "In search of the romantic," ans wered Ada. "What new-fangled herb mought that be," muttered the old. man. They soon found the romantic. It was a Deauuiui place, -ueep in tne woody wilderness." There were huge rocks overgrown with ferns and moss, and up to one of these led a rude flight of steps thrown up by nature's own hand. Ada broke the silence by saying, " Welcome my old retreats. How grand and solemn these rocks appear! How often have I come here and dream ! Well, some of my dreams have been realized. Come, let us ascend." They went up the rude stair-way of stones. Laura exclaimed : Now, I must read God's First Tem ples." . "Yes; do, that will be appropriate." Laura read in a clear, musical tone, and all around was so calm and lovely, that the heart must partake of the quietude. When through, she laid the book aside, and said, " Ada, let us talk of old times, when vou and i sustained tne relation 01 teacher and pupil. How things have changed since then. You were supposed to be an heiress to your wealthy uncle's property, the fu ture owner of the Mil wood estate; but is will discovered that his whole for tune" was given to his wife's nephew, and that you were left dependent upon yourself for support; and now you teach the school whlcb I formerly taught. . I can hardly realize it. Have you ever seen Percy Hamilton, the for tunate heir?" " No. He was in England when un died ; but he is expected here soon, take possession. People say he is an excellent man, worthy of the fortune. the loss of wealth Is not the most. There Is a poverty greater than poverty purse poverty of heart." ' " Why, Laura, you have a wealth of affection.", " But none to bestow it on but yon. I had parents, brothers and sisters to love as you have, I would be happy ; but, Ada, you don't seem happy. By way, did I tell you that Hugh Gil ford is spending a few weeks in the country? I saw him yesterday. at Mr., Snyder's. Ah ! I half suspect that you have stolen his heart." Ada blushed but made no reply; and then In the silence that followed, she thought of Hugh Gilford. There years ago, he had spent the summer in the country, and had boarded at her fa ther's. Ada was teaching the district school, anxious to aid her parents to pay for their home. The modest, pret ty, young teaeher won Hugh Gilford's attention, and the two were often en gaged in conversation. Huge Gilford forgot all about his proud mother and sisters, and thought that If Ada Leigh loved him half as well as he did her, would not refuse to become his wife. What if she was a country girl. She was still talented, noble and beautiful, and would soon learn the little rules of polished society. But Ada thought differently; and when Hugh told her one evening of his love and hoies, she coldly refused him ; and he thought her cold-hearted, and told her so. He did not know what it cost her. He did not know that the next evening, after the scholars had left school, the tired teacher laid her bead upon the rude desk, aud wept wept be cause she was not Hugh Gilford's equal. She loved him passionately ; but be was very proud. She knew that he was wealthy and refined, and she was poor and uneducated, and she would not have him marry one of whom be and his lamily might be ashamed. But times had changed for Ada. ner great longing for education had been gratified. She had been living three years, with a wealthy aunt In New York ; and now she had returned home the same loving, winning girl, but fit ted by her education to fill any posi tion in society. This afternoon, as she was reclining on the rock with her old friend and pupil, she thought that if Hugh Gilford were to ask the same ques tion again, her reply would be different. But that was all past and buried. Laura aroused her from ber reverie by saying " Come, Ada, awake from your brown study, and let us walk to the brook and see 'Niagara." Yes, I would like to see it, but I pre sume the water is rather low." For s short distance, the bed of the stream was solid rock, aud then there was a tall of about tea feet, which the girls had long ago named "Niagara." " What Is that sound ?" asked Ada. There has been a new road made through here, since yon left. It is used already, but it must be very rough, There is a wagon coming down now.' Nearer came the tramp of horses' feet, and they heard the voice of a man calling tbem to stop. " A runaway, exclaimed Laura." And in such a place as this, and we can do nothing to help them'. The horses dashed past, and the 'only occupant, a young man, was thrown out. The girls hastened to him. His hat had fallen on his face. Ads took it up, and exclaimed, "Hugh, oh! my Hugh! He is dead!" and sank sobbing down by his side, and lifted up his bead. and put back the hair from his white brow.- Bnt Laura, more considerate. took the hat and hastened te the stream for water. She returned and told Ada to bathe his face and bead, while ahe went for help. Ada did so, and be soon opened his eyes, and looking at her, a gleam of joy spread over bis face, and he murmured, Ada, dear Ada," and then sank again into a swoon. Assistance soon arrived, aud he was conveyed to Mr. Leigh's. His Injuries were not fatal ; and, when asked wheth er his parents should be informed of the accident, he replied, " No. It will only distress them. But you may send for Dr. Hamilton, who came to Milwood farm last evening. Dr. Hamilton came that evening, and many an evening after, to see his pa tient aud friend; but Hugh thought Ada Leigh's presence was worth more to him than any doctors prescriptions. She talked, read and sang for him, and he was deeper in love, than ever. Laura was often with her friend. One evening, the girls were walking togeth er in the garden, aud Dr. Hamilton who stood at the window, asked, " Who is that lovely lady in com pany with Miss Leigh ?" Why, Percy, don't you know her ?" answered Hugh. "She is Miss Preston a niece of your' ancle Philip Preston. Dou't yoa know that your inheriting that fortune, left her poor as a church mouse, as the saying is ?" " No; how is that?" And Hugh told Laura's story, as Ada had told It to him. When he had fin ished, the doctor only said : " I must compensate for this lose to her." And he looked very serious and thoughtful. He was a handsome young man, who had fitted himself for his pro fession by his energy and Industry, and who would succeed in life, whether a rich uncle left him an inheritance or not. The thought that Laura Preston bad been depressed of what properly belonged to her, by the strange whims of an old man, pained him, and he de termined that he would give her half is property. Six weeks passed, Hugh declared that he was well and strong and must go home. The last. evening he was there, he found Ada alone in the sitting-room, with s book before her. but her mind wandering far away from it. "Ada," he said, and laid his hand lightly on her shoulder. She looked up, and he said in hurried tones: " I wanted to see you alone, before I left. I must ask you again the same question I asked you three years ago. loved you then, and love yoa better now. Can't you love me a little ?" " Just a little, Hugh," answered Ada mischievously. But Hugh Is satisfied, aud claims the betrothal kiss. He left the next morn ing, but Ada knew that he would be back again in a few months, and then she would give him her hand, her heart head been his long ago. There were two weddings at Mr. Leigh's on Christmas. Hugh Gilford and Ada Leigh; and whose was the other, yoa-ask. Well, Percy Hamilton found, after further acquaintance with Laura Preston, that he could only be satisfied by giving her all his fortune, and heart with it. Laura loved him aud accepted, aud had no longer any cause to complain of poverty of heart On their marriage eve, she said to Ada: " We went in search of the romantic, and surely we found it. a s The Philosopher and the Feryman. ryman. A philosopher stepped on board a fer ryboat to cross s stream ; on the pass age he Inquired of the ferryman -if he understood arithmetic The man looked astonished. "Arithmetic? No, sir; never beard of it before."' The philosopher replied : "I am very sorry ; for one quarter of your life is gone." A few minutes after, he asked the fer ryman : " Do you know anything of mathe matics ?" The boatman smiled, and replied : "No." "Well, then," said the philosopher, "another quarter of yonr life is gone." A third question was asked the ferry man: " Do you understand astronomy ?" "Oil! no, no; never heard of sneh a thing." " Well, my friend, then another quar ter of your life is gone." Just at tills moment the boat ran on a rock, and was sinking, when the ferry man jumped op, pulled off his coat, aud asked the philosopher, with great earn estness ol manner "Sir, can you swim?" " No;" said the philosopher. "Well, then," said the ferryman, "your whole life is lost; for the boat is going to the bottom."

A New Plan for Strengthening Buildings. rian for strengthening buildings which certainly presents some new and important facts in regard to the arch itecture and safety of cities has been introduced in Boston by Mr. D. I Emerson, a California architect. It pro vides for the Insertion of iron uprights an inch la thickness, and one-third as wide as the wall is thick, at intervals of ten feet, every front aud side wall, with cross bars holding the four walls together and running through the floors, strap iron being used at intervals, and bound in with bricks. By these means a building is perfectly indestructible by the ordinary means by fires and earthquakes, the walls being strength ened and prevented from cracking by beat. It is the opinion of two eminent architects, given after an examinations of Mr. Emerson's model, that if the stores in the burnt district had been con structed in accordance with the plan now brought forward,tbat at least nine tenth of the walls would now have been standing. Each part of a building be ing bound to tile other part, and; each corner to the other corner, by means of malleable iron wire and nuts, the resis tance as the entire structure is increas ed by two- hundred tons, and intense heat cannot buldge the wails. To iron building, especially, this improvement is valuable. As above stated, the plan is the invention of Mr. Emerson and was brought out some four years ago when a committee appointed in San Francisco offered a premium of $250 in gold for tlie purpose of ascertaining the best methods of strengthening brick buildings, as a precaution againt earth quakes. Unfortunately, the chairman of the committee died before the award was made, and all the plans were given over to the local architects for their fu ture consideration. Mr.Emerson's meth od has received the unqualified approv al of Californian architects and builders. Puzzling a Doctor. Dr. M an army surgeon, was fond of a joke (unless perpetrated at his own expense), and had, moreover, a great contempt for citizen soldiers, who were more renowned for their courage than their scholarship. Oue day at mess, af ter the decanter had performed sundry perambulations of the table, Capt. S a brave and accomplished officer, and a great wag, remarked to the doctor, who had been somewhat, severe in his re marks on the literary deficincies of some of the new officers : ' 'Dr. M, are you acquainted with Capt.G?" " Yes, I know him well," replied the doctor; "he is one of the new set. But what of him ?" 1 Nothing in particular ; I have just received a letter from htm, and I will' wager yon a dozen of old port that yoa cannot guess in six guesses how he spells cat." " Done ! It's a waiter." " Well, commence guessing," S. said K, a, double t." "No." " K, a double t, e." "No." "K,a,t,e." "No! Try again." "Well, then," returned the doctor, "C, a, double t." " No, that's not the way; try again it's your last guess." ' "C,a,g,h,t." " No, that's not the way. You've lost your wager," said S. Well," said the doctor, with much petulance of manner, "bow does be . spell it?" ' Why, he spells it, c, a, t," replied with the utmost gravity of manner, amid tlie roar ol the mess; and, almost ' choking with rage, the doctor sprang , to his feet, exclaiming very harshly: Capt.
