Death Rather than Housework. -Sui cides are uow becoming exceedingly general.? Few days pass without some attempt at self murder: and these occurrences are mostlj among those who are young, and who have had comparatively little wordly experience.? Eleanor Kirk, writing to the Elizabeth Herald of a recent suicidal attempt in Brooklyn, says : The principal gossip in social circles is the attempted suicide of a young married woman in East Brooklyn; The husband is a moderately wealthy man of good stauding and reputation, hut extremely eccentric in certain directions. No .servants are allowed in his establishmeqt, aud his wife, who has no taste for domestic occupations, finally became so disgusted with the ceaseless round of scrubbing aud working, preparing meals and clearing them away, that she concluded she would explore the unknown, and have a change at any rate. In her letter of farewell, she stated that she had no fault to find with her husband, but she was determined to seek a spot where there were no dishes to wash. The pistol with which she attempted tu shoot himself through the heart, was evidently a new weapou in her hauds, for the result was a slight wouud in the left side, causing considerable physical pain, but by no means dangerous. I heard last evening that the mat of the house is likely to conquer his aversiot to servants, having engaged a competent house k-t>i??vr and sufficient hi'ln to move the douiestu machinery, without transforming his wife ink a mere household drudge. Pity he hudti t in uugurated such a system before she umde then both ridiculous. A Tale ok True Love.?The Stark eountj Ohio Democrat says: In our marriage notice! will be found that of Mr. Jacob and Rebece: Kaufman. By this event there hangs a tale The same parties were joined in lawful wedlocl near fifty years ago, in Pennsylvania, and hvei together several years and had three or ton clnldreu.

Otter for sale ut pur mid accrued interest the FIRST MORTGAGE I,A \D GRANT GOLD BONDS ?OF TUB? Northern Pacific Railroad Co. . These bonds are -ecured, .fir.it, by a First ^ Mortgage on tht; Hail road itself, its rolling stock, and nil equipments; second, by a First Mortgage on its entire Land Grant, being more than j Twenty-Two Thousand Acres of Land to each nolo of Koad. i The Bonds are free from United States tax; , the Principal and Interest are payable in Gold? the Principal at the end of Thirty years, and the Interest Semi-annually, at the'rat* of Skvkn^ and Three-Tenths Per Cent. per annum. ? They are issued in denominations of 510(^ M?, $1,00O, $5,000 and $1(1.1100. The Trustees under the .Mortgage are Messrs. ? lay Cooke, of Philadelphia, and >J. Kdgar Thomson, President of the Pennsylvania Central Hailroad Company. These Northern Pacific 7-50 Bonds will, at all times before maturity, be receivable at Ten Per Cent. Premium (or 1.10) in exchange for the Company's lands at their lowest ensh price. In addition to their absolute safety, these Bonds yield an income larger, we believe, than any other tirst-cluss security. Persons holding j United States 5-20's can, by converting them into Northern Pacilics, increase their yearly income one-third, and still have a perfectly reliable investment. HOW TO GET THKM.?Your nearest Bank or Banker will supply these bonds in any desired ; umouut, and of any needed denomination. Persons wishing to exchange stocks or other bonds for these, can do so with any of our agents, who will allow the highest current price lor am, marketable securities. Those living in localities remote from Banks may send money, or other bonds, directly to us by express, and we will send back Northern Pa- 1 cilie bonds at our own risk, and without cost to the investor.
