She quickly gruessed her gruest was there
To please her with his pleas.
Now at her side he kneeling sighed
His sigtis of woful size:

This soul is sole thine own. Louise

and that she often says things mat sne

Tear the wife of Charles Gray.
"Stiir said Susan Adams, another
cousin, "I must say that she is much to
blame. Her husband is one or me Kinaesi
and best of men. and I know that she
often makes him unhappy. She might
act differently if she would." '
-I am not sure of that," returned Han
nan. "She is not to blame for the evil
disposition which was born in her. She
cannot help her own nature. No two of
as are alike in all our feelings, and we
are all act to act about as we feel. It is
unfortunate that some people are dis
ased; but I cannot say that those are to
blame who have inherited their disease
from their ancestors. And so it Is with
"But," suggested Susan, "that person
who has inherited a disease which works
mischief not only to herself, but to all
around her, is certainly to blame if she
does not make any exertion to get rid of
"Aye'snggested Hannah,"but thereare
diseases which cannot be blamed for her
feelings, because they come in spite of
her, and when they have come she can
not hide them.
Aunt Annie Dismore laid her knitting
work aside and gravely shook her head,
v , "Hannah," she said, with deep solem
nity, "you may at some time be a mother;
' and when that time comes, let me urge
you not to teach your children the doc
trine you have been upholding here.
Aunt Annie was such a good, kind
woman, and she loved us all so well, and
did so much for our happiness, that
even Hannah Cleaves was respectfully
silent beneath the gentle reproof.
"A little while ago," our aunt went on,
youwere speaking of willful people.
Now, I admire strong self-will when it
is bent in the right direction. The noblest
of God's creatures are those who have
strong wills. The Christian martyrs
were extremely self-willed. Self-will is
a beneficial force when it is made to up
hold virtue and goodness. And cultivate
self-will as much as you please, and
make it subservient to right. I fear the
trouble with Ruth Gray is that she has
no self-will. What you can call self
will in her is only perverseness, an in
consistency. She exercises no will at
ali, but is the creature of circumstance,
suffering herself to be swayed to and fro
by every gust of passion that sweeps
across her path."
When Aunt Annie laid her knitting
work upon the table, and folded her
hands in her lap, we knew she had some
thing of interest to say to us, for she was
not a woman who talked for the sake -of
"I tell you, girls," she said, "we can if
we will? If we will do right, we can do
right. She who practically denies this
casts aside the very foundation of virtu
ous character, and erects her structure
of life upon a basis of sand. I am going
to tell you a story of my own life. You
call me good, and I think I am good to
you. At all events I try to be so. But
my goodness of temper came to me
through a mighty effort of will, as you
shall see. When I was young I was more
perverse that your cousin Ruth ever was.
My temper was quick and high; I was
subject to fits of despondency that made
all around me miserable; aud I excused
myself upon the plea that such was my
nature and I could not help it. When
I became the wife of Jacob Dinsmore I
was very happy, and I thought myself
very fortunate, for I knew I had won for
a husband one of the best young men in
town. Your Uncle Jacob was then just
what he is now kind, generous loving,
forbearing and faithful to a fault. For
the first six months of our marriage life
I did not allow my bad temper to show
itself very much; but at length my honey
moon waned, and my old feelings began
to manifest themselves. I became, in
- short, just what I was before I was mar
ried. People called me self-willed, but
I had no self-will. I did not will to be
cross and petulent. I was cross and
petulent because I had no will to be
otherwise. Sometimes I had bad feel
ings, and I had no will to overcome them.
The slightest thing that crossed me
found me so utterly devoid of will that it
swayed me at its pleasure. At the end of
two years there was more of misery than
of happinesss in myhome,andI could not
hide from myself the fact that I was the
cause of it all; and yet I tried to con
vince myself that I was not to blame.
When my mother talked with me, I
declared that I could not help it,
and when my husband ventured to
allude to the subject I flew" into a pas
sion. I could not bear a chiding from
him. In fact, his very kindness and
goodness sometimes fretted me; and
when he offered to point out to me my
errors it seemed as though he were
preaching to me, and I would not listen.
"Girls, I tell you truly when I say that
I believe no one was ever more firmly
fixed in the habit of ill-feeling than I
' was at that time, and I did certainly
then believe that I could not help it
"Some time ' before " we were married
there had been a volunteer artillery com
pany in our town, and, as Jacob was the
only commissioned officer living in the
town itself, he took charge of the property
which belonged to. the corps, thus retain
ing control of the two handsome cannon.
One royal birthday the townspeople raised
money for a celebration of the occasion,
and, among other things, a salute to be
fired in the morning, at noon, and at sun
down, of which my husband was to have
"charge. , , . ,
"During the day I received an invita
tion to join some friends in a sail upon
the river, and, as I could not Tery well
go to the landing alone, I asked Jacob to
ko with me. He said it would interfere
with other duties, and he could not g . I
asked hinxif he thought the firing of the
salutes was of more importance than the !
making of happiness for his wife, and, '
when he had foiled meat this argument, !
I asked him why he could not let some j
one else take charge of the cannon. He
answered me calmly and candidly that
he dared not trust the gun in other hands,
He was the only one who understood how
to properly handle it, and he felt obliged
to attend to it. He told me how many j
accidents had happened through mis
takes of inexperienced and careless per-
ouus, huu ne cuuiu not ieei ne at to nec-
nuu uuij no iiau uromisea to rpr-
That was -in the afternoon ; At s;-r
o'clock: it was time for me to start for the
lauumg-piace, u l meant to go; but I
would not go unless my husband went.
He had sent for a carriage to take me
down, but I would not use it. I shrank
away into a fit of the sulks, and so re
mained until it came time for Jacob to
go away with his gun. As he was put
ting on his hat my temper burst forth
into a wna name, ana nis calm answer
only maddened me. At length I pushed
him beyond the bounds of human endur
ance, and he turned upon me more
sternly than he had ever before done.
He did not- speak angrily, but he spoke
as an offended parent might have spoken
to an offending child. This set my blood
completely afire, and I cannot tell you
an uie wicaeu iuiiirs i said.
" 'Annie,' he said to me. as he stood
near the door, "it might have been better
for both of us if we had never met.'
I answered him hotly and passionate
ly that I hoped we might never meet
again. 'If you were dead,' said I, I should
u nappier man i am nowi
" 'No, no, Annie, yon do not mean that
he replied to me.
"And I cried out that I did mean t.
and I declared that I hoped I might never
see mm again anve. And he went away
as I said those words.
"My dear girls, do you think such
words could ever have come from mv
lips? Ah,youdonotknow to what wild
and wicked results of language a course
of unbridled license will lead. If, when
Ruth Gray is angrily disputing with her
husband, some short-hand writer could
take down her words just as they fall
from her lips, and should afterward show
them to her, she would honestly declare
that she never, never spoke such things.
And so, when many mothers are frettiug
ly disputing with their children, could
they hear themselves as others hear them,
they would be shocked beyond measure.
When passion becomes our master, we
are blind as well as insane, and the sin
is not what is then said, but rather in
allowing the adversary the first foot
hold. "My husband went away and left me
alone, and when he had gone I sat down
and cried till I was tired. By-and-by I
heard the report of the cannon, and I
thought, suppose some accident should
happen to Jacob! Suppose he should be
killed! Suppose they should bring him
home dead! As these thoughts came to
me, I remembered what a good, kind
husband he had been, and I also remem
bered how cruel and unjust I had been.
Again and again came the booming re
port of the cannon, and at each report the
dread grew stronger and stronger upon
me. - Oh, what would I then have given
could I have recalled the wicked words I
had spoken! But they had gone forth, and
I must abide the result. Heavier and
heavier grew the weight upon my heart,
until at length I thought I shonld grow
crazy if Jacob did not soon return. My
crime loomed up before me darkly and
threateningly, and it seemed to me that
my husband's death was to be my pun
ishment. Oh, when would the firing
cease, and when would my husband
come home, that I might fall upon his
neck and ask his pardon for all the
wickedness I had done?
"The firing ceased at length, but in
stead of hopefulness, the dread became
heavier. I was hunting . for my bonnet,
intending to go out and meet my hus
band, when I heard, heavy feet in the
garden. The crowd had settled down
and the thunder crash had gone. Men
came in and told me not to be frighten
ed my husband was hurt, but they hoped
not seriously. - Perhaps they thought I
was calm; they did not know that my
heart was frozen, and that the fount of
emotion was shut up. Then other men
brought my husband in on a wide board,
and I saw that his limbs were limp and
lifeless, that his face was like marble,
and that there was blood upon the board
blood trickling down upon the floor!
And I heard them talk. They told me
that he had been run over by the heavy
gun-carriage that, in coming down the
hill from where the salute had been fired,
men and boys, in wild confusion, had
seized the trail-rope, and that my hus
band, in attempting to prevent the rush,
had been knocked down and run over.
"Two doctors came. I heard them
talk of a broken leg, of broken ribs, and
of other injuries, and during all this
time I was as one in a horrid dream, un
able to move or to speak, and almost
suffocating. By-and by I heard one the
doctors say that he would live, and then
I sank down sensless.
"When I came to my senses it was
night, and one of the neighbors sat at
my bedside. I told them I wished to see
my husband, but I was informed that he
was asleep, and that I must not disturb
him then. In the morning I went to
him, and he put up his well arm and
drew me down upon the pillow and kiss
ed me. And he told me not to worry my
self, he was badly hurt, but if I would
nurse him and love him he would soon
"Love him! Oh, my sonl. how strong
I felt then how strong in my love and
in my determination to be a true and
Aunt Annie took off her spectacles and
wiped her eyes, and presently added:
"Girls, that was forty years ago, and
from that day to this I have not spoken
one cross word to my husband. My nature
is not changed at all, but I have gained
control of my will, and bent it in the
right direction; and when once I found
how much pure joy there was in doing
right, it came very easy to do it.
"Ah, here comes your Uncle Jacob now.
See how good he looks! You can see his
gray hairs, and note the wrinkles upon
his brow; but to me he is as young as
ever, and I know that our love was never
more fresh than it is now."
Just then Uncle Jacob came in, and
when, an hour later, we saw him and
Aunt Annie in the garden together pick
ing flowers like two young lovers, we
were forced to the conclusion that they
were really and truly a happy couple;
and Hannah Cleaves had no more reason
to defend Cousin Ruth against the charge
of folly and wickedness in allowing her
own ill-temper to make herself and her
A MEMORABLE CABINET SESSION.
Culled to Discuss tbe Evil of Gam
bling fu tlie Army. Practically Ois
From the New York Times.
There is a general impression at
Washington that the soldiers in our
frontier forts spend their spare time in
gambling. Naturally the Congressional
mind is filled with horror at the thought
that sinful games should be played by
men in the service of the United States,
and bills have been introduced by yari
ons legislators to put a stop to the prac
tice. The President is understood to
have been greatly pained on learning
that the officers and men of the Federal
army are addicted to gambling, and the
other day, just before the appointment
of a new Secretary of War, he . called a
meeting of the Cabinet to discuss the
propriety of " requesting Mr. McCrary's
successor to issue an order prohibiting
gambling under heavy penalties,
Mr. Hayes opened the proceedings
with a brief speech, in which, after a
passing allusion to.the crops of the past
season, he said that he had learned that
gambling prevaUed to a very great , ex
tent among the troops on the frontier.
This gambling, the President said, was
carried on, not only in the usual
way by pitching pennies and playing
marbles to keep, but by a game of cards
called, if he remembered rightly'sledge
hammer," or "tongs." With this game
he was glad to say he was totally unac
quainted, hut he feared that there was
no doubt that it was a wicked game and
one that was so fascinating that the
soldiers would frequently sell their Bi
bles and hymn-books in order to raise
money with which to play. He wished
to hear the views of the Cabinet on this
subject, and their opinions as to the
expediency of in order from the depart
ment forbidding all games of chance.
Mr. Key begged to correct the Presi
dent. The games to which he had re
ferred were doubtless "old sledge" and
"poker." The former, he was free to
say, was a game unworthy of officers
and gentlemen, and as to poker he must
confess that it was ruinous both to the
body and the pocket he should say soul.
"I remember," pursued Mr. Key, "that
while I was an erring Confederate sol
dier we used to play poker every day. I
once raked in $74,000 in Confederate cur
rency (it was worth about $800) in a
single night, I just did hold the most
alfired hands. There was twice I drew
to three kings and filled. I reckon I
made about four times my pay by poker
while I was in the army."
"Permit me to enquire," said Mr.
Eyarts, "if my learned friend adduces
these facts as evidence of the ruinous
consequences of poker? If so I will
call the attention of his Honor the Presi
dent, to the fact that they go to prove
that this so-called poker is one of the
most profitable of American industries."
"I gan not blay any of your boker,"
said Mr. Schurz, "but I know my biano
is far better. I will blay somedidgs for
you now if you like. But so! gan I be
lieve it? Is der biano away from der
The President explained that Mrs.
Hayes had moved the piano up stairs so
as to make more room for the Cabinet
"It is gurious," continued Mr. Schurz,
"when I game to Washington there is a
biano in every house to which I vent.
Now every one has been up stairs taken.
I gan not agount for it. What is"
"I recklect," broke in Mr. Thompson,
with the slightest apology for his inter
ruption of Mr, Schurz, "I reklect when I
was aboy raftin' on the Wabash, we used
to play old sledge and poker, and go the
odd man for quarters all daylong. One
v'yage I scooped the cabin and all hands
and came into New Orleans with all tbe
money of the whole crowd in my pocket.
But, as Mr. Hayes says, gambling is
wrong, very wrong. Still, therr's this to
be said for it. While the soldiers are
playing poker they can't be reading
Popish books or listenin' to'Jesuit priests
and there's no manner of doubt that
Romanism is a sight worse than gam
bling. I'd like to see a general order re
quiring every soldier to make an affida
vit once a month that he is a good
Protestant, and is determined to fight
the Pope to the last gasp."
The President here asked if Brother
Thompson would kindly explain what he
meant by a quarter of an odd man.
Mr. Thompson said that he could illus
trate what "going the odd man for quar
ters" meant very easily, if Mr. Hayes
and Mr. Key would each put a quarter
of a dollar down on the table and cover
it with their hands while he did the
same with another quarter. He then
asked them to lift their hands and show
the coins. Both the President's and Mr.
Key's quarters lay with their . heads up,
while Mr. Thompson's lay with its tail
up. "You see," explained Mr. Thomp
son, -that your quarters are just alike,
while mine was different; so I'm the odd
man so I scoop in your money."
Mr. Hayes regarded the disappearance
of his quarter of a dollar with some un
easiness, but suggested that they had
better try it again, as he did not yet ful
ly understand the game, and wished to
know the full extent of its wickedness.
In the next three experiments the Pres
dient won, and remarked that he did not
see but that if it were played within
proper limits it would be an innocent
and amusing game. As the investiga
tion still proceeded, Mr. Evarts and the
rest of the Cabinet, with the exception
of Mr. Key, and Mr. Thompson, gradual
ly withdrew. Twice Mr. Thompson sent
the call boy out for change, and his
brow grew darker as the hours went on.
It was full 10 o'clock when the Presi
dent rose up and denounced the game as
being of clearly satanic origin. Mr.
Thompson coincided with him, observing
that its character had entirely changed
since his early Wabash days, but Mr.
Key, with his pockets loaded down with
silver, protested that he saw nothing
wrong about the game, and would be
glad to assist the President in any fur
ther investigation of the kind that he
might feel disposed to make.
This is the story of the Cabinet meet
ing, which certain wicked army officers
assert is the only true and authorized
account of its proceedings. There
is reason, however, to doubt its
literal truth.- It is probable that either
the President, the Postmaster General,
or the Secretary of the Navy would have
told what occurred at a secret meeting
of the Cabinet? If they did not, it is
evident that we have no trustworthy ac
count of how the game stood when the
meeting broke up.
A Witty Parson.
A Scotch clergyman named Watty
Morrison was a man of most irrepressi
ble humor. On one occasion a young of
ficer scoffed at the idea that it required
so mnch time and study to write a ser
mon as ministers pretend, and offered a
bet that he would preach an hour on any
passage in the Old Testament without
the slightest preparation. Mr. Morrison
took the bet, and he gave for the text,
"And the ass opened his mouth and he
spake." The parson won the wager, the
officer being rather disinclined to em
ploy his eloquence upon the text.
On another occasion Mr. Morrison en
treated an officer to pardon a poor soldier
for some offense he had committed. The
officer agreed to do so, if he would in
turn grant him the first favor he should
Mr. Morrison agreed to this. In a day
or two the officer demanded that the cer
emony of baptism should be performed
on a puppy. The clergyman agreed to
it, and a party of many gentlemen as
sembled to witness the novel baptism.
; Mr. Morrison desired the officer to hold
up the puppy, as was customary in the
baptism of children, and said:
"As I am a minister of the Church of
Scotland, I must proceed according to
the ceremonies of the church."
"Certainly " said the major; "I expect
all the ceremony." ,
"Well, then, major, I begin by the usu
al question: 'You acknowledge yourself
the father of this puppy?'" ;
A roar of laughter burst from the
crowd, the officer took the candidate for
baptism away, and thus the witty ' min
ister turned the laugh against the infi
