HAPPY MARRIED LIFE.
Mrs, Gladstone a True Helpmate to Hr I Hatband for Fifty Tear. Mrs. Gladstone's career as wife and mother has been pointed to for years as a model. The dependence of hus band and wife on each other in all cir cumstances has been noted. The statesman has found in his spouse a true helpmate, who sympathized with all his aspirations, with confidence in all his movements of his long life of political activity, has looked to the future to bring him success in all his projects and vindication of his motives. An amusing anecdote is told in illus tration of this wifely, unswerving faith. After the late general election, when the appeal to the country had resulted adversely to Mr. Gladstone's Irish policy, Mrs. Gladstone was found somewhat depressed by a visitor at Hawarden Castle, while the grand old man was serenely at work in his study up stairs. "Never mind," said the visitor, sym pathetically. "There is One above who will bring things rignt, in nis own , good time." "Yes, indeed," replied the good lady, "He will bring things right; but he will forget all about his lunch if I don't call him down." ( Mrs. Gladstone nursed all her chil- dren herself. She looked after them from infancy, and cared for them in every way as if she had not been the lady of the castle, who was able to command any amount of assistance that she might require. With their ( little ones Mr. and Mrs. Gladstone "have always been the most tender and affectionate of parents. When out of office Mr. Gladstone taught his elder children Italian. The girls were edu cated at home by governesses. English, French and German. The boys all went to Eton and afterward to Oxford. Blessed herself with a perfect constitu tion and unbroken health, Mrs. Glad stone has watched over her husband with the skill of a nurse and the vig ilance of a guardian angel. She knows the limits of her own skill to a hair's breadth, and the moment they are passed she calls in the doctor. Nor is it only in the maladies of the body in which she has displayed invaluable qualities. She has certainly kept Mr. Gladstone shielded from all the minor worries of life. Mr. Gladstone is fully sensible of what he owes to his wife, nor has he made any secret of the fact that his continuance in public service was de pendent upon the health of his partner in life. Had she broken down and be come an invalid he would have retired from the service of his country. It would have been impossible, he felt, to carry on the work of the Government, and, at the same time, to have attended to his duty to his wife, nor could he have stood tbe strain if she, who had been throughout as a ministering spirit, instead of aiding him, had become a tax upon his vitality. The self-denial of Mrs. Gladstone is beyond all praise. It no doubt seems very dazzling and imposing to be the wife of a prime minister, or even the wife of the leader of the opposition, but the wife herself has a somewhat hard time of it. The absorption of a prime minister in the work of the nation leaves him very lit tle time for domestic intercourse. Mrs. Gladstone has been known to remark that when Mr. O'ndstone was in office in London, dun ., the season, it was quite a treat to her to be invited to a friend's house to dinner together with her husband. She always then tried to get seated next to him, "when," she said, "it is at least possible for me to have conversation with my husband; otherwise I see nothing of him." Lon don Letter. THE FIRST MATCH. A BemlaUcence Which Appeals Strongly to the Sene of the Kldlcoloua. A few days ago a gentleman, who is now something over sixty yeaas of age, said to me: "I well remember the time when I first saw a match. I was then a boy, and was working in the barn with my father, when a young man, the son of a neighbor, came in 'with a box in his hand and said he could now light a lire without borrowing coals or striking a spark with the flint Opening the box he look out one of the matches, which was three or four inches long and had a yellow looking substance on one end. This end he dipped into a small bottle which came in the box with the matches and contained sulphuric acid. When the match was put into the acid it instantly burnt into ablaze. Although young' Grant had paid fourteen shillings (fl.75) for his box, which held but fifty matches, he was quite ready to use up one or more of the costly fire-makers in showing father how the wonderful invention worked. But father, having a wholesome fear of fire, and looking other words it would have taken 140 with some suspicion on any new de- such engines to balance an ounce avoir parture from established ways, begged ' dupois. Three of the Penn engines Grant, if he would fool with that stuff j would have weighed more than 146 like to go outside, for he didn't want his that made by Taylor. The engine made barn burned, aown, aaamg. may oe i fun to see that go off, but it ain't going to do anybody any good to have fire made as easy as that!' " The old gen tleman was mistaken. His son has lived to see the time when fire can be made much more easily, and it does people good by saving time and temper while the number of fires from the use of matches is comparatively few. Five hundred- "parlor" matches can be bought for five cents; between forty and fifty million matches are made every day in the United States, and still the country is not yet destroyed by fire in spile of the ease with which we can make fire.

DIMINUTIVE MACHINERY. A Perfect Engine Ballt on a Twenty-five Cent Gold Piece. The engine-makers, like the watch makers, have tried to attain distinction in the matter of the diminutive. In 1870 John Penn, the eminent maker of great steam engines, who resided at Greenwich, England, came into posses sion of what was then the smallest steam engine in the world. It stood on a three-penny piece. It really covered less space, for its base plate measured only three-eighths of an inch by about three-tenths. From the ex treme smallness of the model some of the details were omitted.but not enough to interfere in any way with its going. The screws were only one-eightieth of an inch in diameter, and these were duly furnished with hexagonal nuts, which only could be loosened by aid of a tiny wrench made for that purpose. The weight of the whole model, with out the three-penny base, was less than the weight of the coin itself. Six years later, at the. time of our Centennial exhibition, Penn would have felt ashamed of his threepenny piece engine" had he had it on exhibi tion at Philadelphia. During the prog ress of this great exposition Levi Taylor, of Indianola, la., placed on exhibition "side by side" with the great Corliss engine an engine, perfect in all its parts, built on a twenty-nve cent gold piece, and with some of its parts so small as to only be seen by aid of a powerful microscope. The entire eneine weighed but three grains. In ny V. A. BUCK, oi waierDury, i;onn., is usually given, in lists of small things. as the smallest engine in the world; but this is a mistake. The one men tioned last above so far takes the palm for smallness. The writer cheerfully admits thatrthe Buck engine is more perfect in its details than the Iowa wonder, but the fact that its base plate is a gold dollar forever kills its claim to being the smallest, as the Iowa en gine, as mentioned above, uses a twenty-five cent gold piece for the pur pose. Bnck's engine has 148 distinct pieces of machinery, held together by 52 screws. Three drops of water filled the boiler to overflowing. The diame ter of its cylinder is one-twenty-eighth of an inch; the length of stroke, three thirty seconds of an inch; its entire weight, four and a half grains. West ern Manufacturer.

One of the results of the thickly pop ulated condition of certain districts of the city has been the establishment of a Saturday night street market by the various peddlers of food, merchandise and "notions" who roam the streets at large during the week. Before night-1 fall on the last day of the week these Itinerant merchants take up their stand on one of the crowded avenues and prepare to reap a harvest of small change by the sale of the stale, accu mulated "leavings'1 of the week. As I went up Ninth avenue last Saturday evening I noticed with sur prise the dimensions attained by the open air market in that locality. From about Thirty-fifth to Forty-second street both sides of the avenue were lined with the carts and wagons of these venders. A haze hung over them, composed of the smoke from their paraffine lamps and torches mingled with the damp night air. The noise was truly that of a babel of tongues. Trish accents mingled with the broken English of the Italian. German, Polish, Spanish, Scandinavian and Mongolian tongues wagged busily, discussing a barter involving the value I of perhaps ten cents. j And what models for an artist flitted to and fro on the pavements or stood ' haggling by the wagons! Here a J brawny son of modern Rome, who might in olden times have won plau- i aits as a giaaiaior. dl. wno in mese degenerate days is giad to earn a scanty living as an aqueauci laoorer, a j craroacre crainerer or wnai now mere a keen eyed Milesian, with the hod of a bricklayer in his hand. Now a vola tile Frenchman, carefully scanning the odds and ends that he will doubtless convert into an appetizing ragout. As I passed I glanced at the food displayed in this great bargain mart. There was an indefinable aspect of staleness about it, and as I noted the many small stores that lined the street I wondered why these polyglot buyers from the tenement houses should pre fer to purchase from irresponsible ped dlers rather than from established and permanent tradesmen. I communica ted my wonder to a man who looked like a car driver. . Said be: "The stuff that those ped dlers sell is stale and often rotten, but every thing is faked up so as to look fresh. They blow out the chickens and dip 'em in some kind of liquid that makes 'em white so that a greenhorn wouldn't guess that they had been peddled on the streets for a week op more. The fruit is harder to patch up, but they do it." N. Y. Herald. m Cost of a Locomotive.
