started after them on horseback, litt
thinking that his wife was of the part
yet faintly hoping that he would hci
from her. He overtook ihem just ?
they had arrived at Blue river. He wi
astonished at seeiug his wife there,an
only recognized her by a distant bov

The lording-place was a little hig

if one kept one's eye on the road at th

To Nellie, the chill of the wale

death. She did not scream; she be
; licved she would drown, and the onl"

would die unreconciled to her bosbend
Bat the thought had scarcely beconn
one ere the stiong arms and nerves o

sight of her bloodless face turned so be?
seechingly toward him.?They stood
alone on the ledge of rocks in the mid?

'Lloyd,' she said, 'you will forgive
me. I am not so guilty as you suppose.
I love you, so I conic down here to find
you. And oh, Hoyd,' as she ?aw his
face softening toward her, 'you do love

He laid his hand over the little Au?
gers quivering so piiiously, remember?
ed himself, and drew away. His voice
was hard as he said:
T might have, listened to ysu, and be?
ieved an explanation possible, if I had
not found you with him to-day.'
?Thcu why did you not let me die?'
?he moaned. '?Vhy dil you save mj
life to torture nie?'
Aud she commenced sobbing.
'Woman, this is n< ting. Have done
with it!'was the husband's only un
Her excited sobs came faster. A
gleam of pity cam? into his cyea; he
hurried with her to the shore, wrapped
her iu shawls provided by the company,
placed her in a carriage and told the
driver to hurry with lier to the hotel, six
miles distant; he would follow on horse?
back. As he put her out of his arms,
her great pleading eyes were turned
toward him, searching for seme look of
affection, some faint recognition ef all
that she had been to him. But finding
none, the anguish ef her disappoint?
ment broke forth in a single word?
To his dying day lie never forgot that
cry. A slight quiver about the mouth, a
swift quailing of the eye were all the
siugns ho gave that he heard her. She
knew tha', all was over botween them.
One thought took possession of her : to
act so that the campany would suspect
nothing. So she declared herself re?
stored upon their arrival at t!?e hotel,
aud insisted upen coing with the party
into the cave.
At one o'clock they started, with
lighted candles and guides. Weston
kept near Nellie; Whitlow wa8 here
there, everywhere. Ho had become
interested at last iu some magnificent
stalactites and his party cot far ahead of
him. He discovered this and hurried
after them. He could sec their lights
?u the distance. When nearly up to '
them his can'dlc went out. He went
sauntering along until he camo within
hearing of the two nearest him, aud he
recognized his wife and Westen.
'You cannot deny,' Weston was say?
ing, 'that yeu have encouraged mc to
think that you cared for me, Nellie, and
by heaven, you shalt not say me nay !'
'I confess to having done wrong. I
was so afraid 1 did not possess my hus?

test his love for me by trying to make
'So you made a cat's paw of mc !?
Ycry kind iu you. May I ask what

'Love him?' 1 u.olize him! I would

well that I cannot Imagine how heaven

'That is enough, Mrs. Whitlow. 1
believe that you will enjoy yourself
more in his company than in mine; so
I will step ahead and send him back to
Weston went on, when out of the
darkness a pair of arms encircled her.
Nellie looked up, terror-stricken, and
saw the face of her husband, wearing
so different a look that she knew he had

'I believe I understand you,' he said
with a smile. "What you ask is easily
given ; suppose I commence now,' and
Lloyd Whitlow clasped his little wife to
his breast aud nearly covered her with

age on the Bushkill creek. For this
cataract, Mr. George Compton, pro?
prietor of the summer boarding Louse
near the Delaware Water Gap, accom
panied by his wife, daughter and several
guests, started on Saturday morning
last. ReachiDg Bushkill, the party set
out on foot for a tor.r of inspection.
Having visited all the smaller places of
interest, the Bushkill Falls were sought.
Arriving at the cataract the party sepa?

Mr, Compton, wife and daughter?the
latter a beautiful and accomplished
young lady?and one other gentleman
stopped near the head of the fulls to
take a rest. While resting, Miss Comp?
ton carelessly proceeded to the edge of
the rocks and peered down into the
sethmg waters 125 feet below. As she
leaned over she lost hrr balance, and
uttcriug a piercing scream for help, she
plunged headlong into the rocky abyss.
Her mother, almost wild with grief,
wrung her hands, and was only pre?
vented from jumping into the cataract
after her daughter by the terrified father
and the gentleman who accompanied
them. While the latter held the ago?
nized mother Mr. Compton hastened to
the foot of the falls, to find his un?
fortunate child feebly combating with
the rough billows and struggling to
reach the shore. Without a moment's
hesitation he jumped into the stream,
and after a desperate struggle succeeded
in rescuing he. A physician was im?
mediately summoned, who pronounced
her injuries of a fatal nature. The girl
was bv this time unconscious, aud her
body was bruised and mangled from
head to foot. She was taken to her
home, and at last accouuts was slowly
sinking, with no possible chance for re?
During the administration of Jeffer?
son, Alexander Hamilton was killed in
a duel by Aaron Burr. Ilia sou, John
C. Hamilton, gives to a correspondent
of '.he Philadelphia Times this pathetic
iucident of his father :
''The day before the duel I was sit?
ting in a rsora, when, at a slight noise,
I turned around aud saw my father in
the doorway, standing silent there aud
looking at me with a most sweet and
beautiful expression of countenance. It
was full of tenderness and without any
of the business pre ?occupation he some?
"'John,' he said, when I had dis?
covered him, 'won't you come aud sleep
with me to-Dight ?'
"His voice was frank, as if he had
been my brother instead of my father.
That night 1 went to his bed, and in
the morning very early he awakened
me, and taking my hands in bit palms,
all four band? extended, he said, and
told me to repent, the Lord's Prayer.

Julius Moser gives the following
counsel from a wife aud mother :
"I try to mak? myself and all around
me agreeable. It will not do to leave
a man to himself till he comes to you;
to take no pains to attract him, or to
appear before him with a long face.??
It is not so difficult as you think, dear
child, to behave to a husband so that
he shall remain forever iu some meas?
ure a husband, lam an old woman,
but you can still do what you like; a
word from you at the right time will
not fail of its effect ; what need have
you to play the suffering virtue? The
tear of a loving girl, said an old book,
is like a dewdrop toa rose ; but that on
the cheek of the wife is a drop of poison
to the husband. Try to appear cheer,
ful and contented, and your husband
will be so, and when you have made
him happy you will become so?not in
appearance, but in reality. The skill
required isnot so great. Nothing flat?
ters a man so much as the happiness
of his wife ; he is always proud of him?
self as the source of it. As soon IB
you arc cheerful lie will be lively and
alert, and every moment will afford you
an opportunity to let fall an agreeable
word. Your education, which gives
you au immense advantage, will great?

become the noblest gift that nature has
bestowed on you. when it shows itself

A Wife's Faith.
Intone of the towns of England there
is a beautiful little chape!, and a very
touching little story is told iu connec?
tion with it. It was built by an infidel.
He had a praying wife, but he would
not listen to her ; would not allow her
pastor even to take dinner with them,
would not look at the Bible, would uot
rllow religion to be talked of. She
made up her mind, seeing that she could
not .'utlueuce him by her ?voice, that
everyday she would pray to God at
twelve o'clock for his salvation, she
said nothing to him. but every day at
that hour she told the Lord about her
husband. At the end of twelvemonths
there was no change in him. But she
did not give him up. Six months more
went past. Her faith began to waver
and she said. '"Well I haye to give him
up at last ? Perhaps when I am dead,
He will answer my prayers." When
she had got to that point, it 6eemed
just if God had got her where he wanted
her. The man came home to dinner
one day. His wife was in the dining
room wailing for him, but he didn't
come in. She waited sonic time, and
finally looked for him all through the
house. At last flic thought of going
into the little room whore she had pray?
ed so often. There he was praying at
the same bed with agony, where she
had prayed for so many months askiug
forgiveness for his sins. And tbil II a
lesson to you wives who have infidel
bosbands. The Lord saw that woman's
faith and answered her prayers.
The most common error of men and
women is that of looking for happ
outside of usual work. It lias never yet
been found when thus sought, aud
never will be while the world Stands ;
aud the sooner the truth is learned,
the better for every one. If yon doubt
the proposition, go around among your
friends and acquaintance! and
those who have the most enjoyment
through life. Are they the idlers and
pleasure-seekers, or the earnest work?
ers? We know what your answer will
be. Of the miserable human beings it
has been our fortune or misfortune to
know, those were the most wretched

stand no nonsense!'
This was what tie trustees of the dfs?
tr'.'t said to my friend Harry Flotee
when he made application for the
vacatit position of teacher.
'Let me try. I know 1 am slander,
bat I am tOttgh, and I have a stiouz

'Just as you like! There's the school
honse, and I'll bar? nettes given if you
want it done.' laid the trustee.
?1 do!' said Harry. 'An 1 I'll open
next Monday at 0 A. M.'
The notice was given, aud there was a
good deal of excitement in the Qolcb
and along the Yoba flats. More than

an excuse to drop iulo the tavern to get

Eight o'clock on Monday morning
came, and HsrryFlotee went down to
the school-house with a key in one hand
aud a valise in the other.
?Ready to slope if he finds we're too
much for him,' said a cross-eyed, broad
shouldered fellow of eighteen. The
s:hool-housc was unlocked, and | the
teacher went to the desk. Some of the
young folks went in to see what he was
going to do, though school was not
Harry opend his valise and took out
a large belt. Then, after buckling it
around his waist, he put three Colt's
navy revolvers there, each of six barrels
and a bowie knife eighteen inches in

tered the cross-eyed chap.
The new teacher now took out a
square card about four inches each way,
walked to the other end of the school
house, and tacked it upagaiastthe wall
Returning to his desk he drew a revol?
ver from his belt, and quick as thought
sent ball after ball into the card,
till there were six balls in a spot not
much larger than a silver dollar.
By this timo the school-house was
half lull of large boys and girls. The
little oues were afraid to come in.
Then the teacher walked half way
down the room with the bowie-knife in
uii hand, and threw it with so true a
hand that it stuck quiveriug in the Very
center of the card.
He left it there, and put two more
knives of the -ame kiud iu his belt, and
quietly re-loaded his yet smoking pistsl.

It took two hours to organize the

teacher went oat, too, for the room was
crowded and hot. A hawk was circling
overhead high in the air. The teacher
drew a revolver, and the next second
the hawk came tumbling down among
tb< wodeting scholars.
From that day on Harry kept scliool
for two years iu Cranberry Gulch, his
