A richly -dressed lady, followed by a man servant, stopped at a market stall one Satur day, and bought a pair of chickens of the old huckster woman. The lady offered a five dollar bill, which the huckster could not chage. A man making some purchases at the same time, offered to oblige the huck ster by taking the bill, and giving five gold dollars for it. He gave them to her, and she returned the just change to the lady. The latter had not walked a square be fore she had disconered that one of the gold coins was counterfeit. She took it back to the market woman, who insisted upon her taking a good dollar instead, saying that she would see the man who had given her the bad one the next time he passed, and make him take it back. Quite willing not to lose the dollar, the lady consented. A few days afterwards she passed the stall again, and stopped to ask if the woman had yet seen the man who had given her the counterfeit dollar. wasn't going to let you keep it, being as you are my best customer ; bat I passed it the very next time I had to make change, and no fuss. .Never you mind, honey, the wo .-man as I give it to served me the very same trick last week. I was glad to get a chance 4o pay her off." "I am very sorry it is going any fur ther," said the lady. I came here on pur pose to get it, and destroy it. I thought I could better afford to lose it than many an other. Now I shall always be sorry that I did not do my duty when I had it in my power. "Laws, then, I wish I'd kept it, for Peg Bly, who I gin it to, will likely pass it off on some poor Doay ; ana 11 aoes seem iair that the big-bugs should lose what must be lost anyhow. I will just see if Peg has got it yet, if you re willing to wait a bit." No Peg had not trot it ! She would have scorned to keep it so long. But choosing her victim, with some discretion, among those she called Dig-bugs, she gave it to a middle-aged man, whose fingers were so cold that he was less particular in examin ing his change than usual. Arriving at home, he found the dollar bad, but could not remember at what stall he had received it ; so, in great indignity at the dishonesty of those hucksters, he had made up his mind to pocket his loss. He went to church regularly or, rather, to Methodist meeting but of all things he hated the poor-plate, which was passed around every Sunday for contributions. Yet he generally put something into it, because folk's eyes were upon him. The next Sun day, when it came around, he maliciously put therein the counterfeit dollar, "lbere. thought he, "you are welcome to that V He did not blush, or look, or feel ashamed. Observers would never know the cheat. However, when the preacher read in the Bible-lesson about Ananias and Sapphira, he had to comfort himself with the remembrance that the age for miracles is past. That afternoon a lady called upon him, and complained that a counterfeit dollar, which she had given to such a huckster, had been transferred to another, who had given it to him. She had come to redeem that dollar, as her conscience troubled her about it, and she supposed it was still in his pos session, of course. - The avaricious man always took great care of his reputation. He protested that tne mar set-woman must do misiasen, as ce could show her every gold dollar in his house, and they were all good. She must have given it to some other man. The lady was so sure that she hesitated, and was inclined to urge the matter, when the unlucky wife said to her husband : George, you put a gold dollar pu the poor-plote. That must be it." Shame and anger suffused his face ; but he said, plausibly, "Oh, perhaps so ! ' I did not think of that ! Piow what a pity ! should have observed more closely But 1 will make it up another time." "I feared it would be so. It has gone to the poor, who can least bear its loss," said the lady sadly. "But it is my fault, and I must trace it out. Who is your pastor, sir?" Being informed,' the persevering lady called upon him. . To go back a little. When the deacon or whatever he may be called, saw the little , gold coin deposited amidst the copper and ' small silver on the plate, he was passing around the meeting, he was rejoiced, and as he was also treasurer, he took the amount home and placed it in the fund. The min isters to that church are surmorted alto gether by voluntary contributions, and the time being come for paying the allowance to their pastor, it was counted out, and to " make chancre, soma money taken fiom the poor fond the counterfeit, dollar being a part of t m The good man received his pittance -with joy; which, was "shared by his needy wife and their nice children.- " There was much j planning and plotting as to the spending of the small sum. All extravagant hopes from it were brought into due compass, and every dollar appropriated in the most absolutely necessary manner. The father retired to write a sermon upon the bounty of God, and the wife, who was banker and disburser, went to put away the money. Then she detected the base coin. With indignant, flushing cheeks she took it to her husband. "Oh I" he said, "it is hard, hard ! But the Lord will teach us how to do without it. He feeds the young ravens." "Do you think it would be wrong to pass it, husband ? I mean at some of those rich dry .goods stores. I can't do very well without my gown. We are so poor ! Oth ers would not miss iL It came to us a good one. We need not be too particular." .. "Oh, wife !" was the reply, "this is a temptation of Satan. Passing a counterfeit dollar is just the same as telling a lie, and setting other folks to tell lies, too. . Throw it into the fire, that it may deceive and dis appoint no one else, and forget we ever had it. That is all we can do." The wife, discontented and sad, returned to her work of mending the children's clothes. Her eldest daughter, a girl of twelve, was ironing in the kitchen. She came in with a woeful face, saying : "Mother, dear, look here I lather s best linen neck-cloth wa3 hanging on the chair, and baby pulled it off and switched the corner of it into the fire. It was half burned up be fore I could pull it out. What will lather do? The child was reproved too sharply for not taking more heed, and went crying to her work. "It is too bad," said the mother, "that toe must be the ones to suffer always. But father shall not be the loser by the careless ness of his people. I won't put up with it! That bad dollar came from the congregation, and it shall go back to them !" So she put on her bonnet, and went to the gentleman's furnishing store, kept by Mr. J3.. a member of their church. Jshe bought her husband a new neck-cloth, which she hoped he would never know from the old one. ' That verv day the lady called and asked to see the Rev. Mr. . She toll the story of the counterfeit dollar, and asked if he had seen anything of it, saying that she had come to redeem it. lhe minister said that it had luckily fallen into his own hands. and joyfully did he hasten to his wife's room. "God verily numbers the hairs of our heads," he said. "He will not suffer one of his little sparrows to fall to the ground, Give me the bad dollar, for a lady has come to give us a good one in its place. I hen came the agony of confession ot the hitherto honest wife, bhe will weep and wriihe to her dying day, at the remembrance of that look of surprise and wounded trust which her beloved husband s face wore as he heard it. She went at once to the lady and told her all. It was a brave deed, for she was a minister's wife, with a whole congregation watching to detect a slip from uprightness. The lady, she feared, would report her delinquency, but she had fallen into merciful hands, and her fault was kept secret. They went together to the furnish ing store. The store-keeper examined his till and desk. There was no such dollar to be lound, and no one could tell to whom it had been given. One of the shop girls had probably passed it without seeing that it was not good, lhe lady left a dollar to replace it, should any one bring it back, and went home disappointed. Her husband was a magistrate, and she knew that he was so strict in bringing of fenders to justice, that she never mentioned to him this counterfeit, for fear of getting the market woman into trouble for passing it, knowing it to be such. That night her husband came home from his office looking exceedingly 'weary and sad. His wife pressed to know the reason "Oh," said he, "the duties of my office are sometimes so painful ! I have just had to send such a nice, lady-like woman to the lock-up for the night, because it was too late to examine her at once. She seemed in great distress about something ; but she can't speak a word of English, so I couldn't make it out. I think, though, that her husband is sick." "Why not let her go, and take her up again in the morning ? "Well, 6he i3 accused of a serious charge counterfeiting and her distress may be all 6ham, only a plan to get her husband off. I don't want him warned. I have set a watch about the house, but can do no more until morning. There are great numbers of counterfeit gold dollars in circulation, and this woman, her neighbors say, has tried to pass three within a week. I have been very anxious to discover the rogues ; and I don't believe this woman has anything to do with it. However, I had to shut her up, the neighbors are so indignant. To-morrow it will be looked ito, and the woman set free, I have no doubt." "Perhaps her poor, sick husband may die of anxiety and alarm, meanwhile. "Well, put on your 'bonnet, wife. You can speak German. I should feel easier, I confess, if I knew more about this matter. and will go to her residence." The wife hastily made ready. They had to go to a dirty, narrow court, peopled by the lowest Irish. When they arrived and inquired for the man, they were shown into a destitute room, without hre or light, at the door 6? which they had knocked, but re ceived no answer. When they approached the bed, a man spoke as if just awaking, and said in German: 'Olga, have you come ? I am so cold, and I have been dying for a drink of water. I could not reach my medicine, Olga, and it is long past the hour. But poor wife, you have gone through much, no doubt and nave they -paid you 7 The magistrate sent the officious neigh bors for fire and light, . while his wife grad ually broke the news to her husband,' for he had not heard of his wife's arrest.. - The neighbors were afraid to tell it to a man so iH. He was lying, wasted by a low fever, almost to a skeleton. He seemed horror struck at the idea of his wife's .disgrace and, turning away from the lady, he .wept bitterly. - x rom ejaculations,- and fragment ary sentences, she gathered that he belonged to a noble family in some little German principality, and had been obliged, on ac count of sympathy with Hungary, to fly with his wife. They had expended all their means before they had been able to get , any employment; n" since the failure - of her husband's' health, the poor wife , had. strug gled to support them both, with her needle. lie turned to his visitors again to explain about the counterfeits. He said, the neigh borhood and market people gave, his wife bad money repeaUy, thinking shrewdly that she, being a foreigner, would not be likely to know the true coin well. When she ig- norantly tried to buy things with this bad money, she was harshly treated ; therefore, when she had another gold dollar given to her he supposed she had shown it to her neigh bors to ask if it were good, and bad not been able to make herself understood by them. He had not seen her since she left him to take home shirts to .Mr. B.'s fur nishing store. lhe magistrate perceived that these peo ple were innocent, and went at once to ob tain the woman s release, while his wife stayed and busied herself in procuring com fort for the destitute invalid, without con sulting him at all about it, for she saw that his proud spirit rebelled against receiving as charity, even the means of prolonging life. It was not long before her husband re turned, and never was there a sadder or tenderer meeting than between the sick man and his liberated wife. Although medical attendaace was procured, and every comfort placed about him, the sufferer died that night, blessing with his last words the lady who had enabled him to have the comfort of his wife's presence in his last dark hour. "What a drerdful chain of sin and sor row I have occasioned," she said. "I do not think you were to blame," her husband replied, "for you only left the dol lar to be given to the true passer of it. "Oh, no ! 1 was almost sure the market woman would not be particular. I thought she would get rid of it the first chance she had. Yet, I said, that is no concern of ne. It was an indifference to right which ha3 had the force of intentional wickedness. See what a series of sins I occasioned. The market woman gratified her revenge first, and did a dishonest act besides ; then that hateful hypocrite put it into the poor-fund m church cheating m the very temple. The moment his wife spoke of his contribu tion, I saw detected guilt in his face ; but he told more falsehoods he pretended he did it by mistake, and that he would make it up !

Oh, what agony it will always be to her to re member it, and to me to know that I occa sioned itl And the starving, innocent German lady, who came near being deprived of her husband's last kiss ; and who en dured hours of misery, knowing that he was suffering in her absence ! Oh, hus band ! One ill deed -Sows countless seed.' "I shall never forget this lesson. Pray God that every one of my sins of omission may not be followed by such a train of mis chief 1" To be reminded of her fault, the lady had the dollar set in a plain bracelet, and wore it constantly upon her arm. iuvery day the base coin left a green mark from corro sion, and, as she washed it off, she thought how blessed it would be if the consequences of sin could be as easily effaced. But that she knew by experience could not be. In the three days since she had first been care less ot the right, that dollar which she suf fered to slip through her fingers, had brought sin or un happiness to herself, the two huck sters, the hypocrite, the minister's wife and the persecuted foreigner. They, none of them, would ever, during their whole lives, escape from the consequences of her culpa ble neglect in not stopping the circulation of that counterfeit dollar. - Preserving Apples. A lady sends us the following common- sense like method of preserving apples in stead of drying, which, from what we know of preserving other fruits in the same way. we recommend to general use : It 13 simply to stew the apples as you would for sauce, either with or without su gar, and while boling pour them into stone jars, (we have them to hold about one gal lon, with a mouth from two to three inches in diameter, and a cork to fit it,) and seal immediatly. I his .is done by pressing aown tne corK Deiow tne edge oi tne jar, and pouring a sealing wax made of rosin, beeswax and Venetian red, melted together in any proportion you please, which, when cool, makes an air-tight cement, and they will keep fresh all winter and are much bet ter for pies or any other purpose than when dried, as well as less trouble, we think. - They can be done a jar full at a time, when ever there is leisure for it through the fall. The jars cost but little at first, and are good, if not broken, lor any number of years. x, A Yarn. A story ia going the rounds of the papers to the effect that Mr. Daniel S.

The Envelopes to be sealed and to be precisely alike -then to be indis criminately mixed together, and numbered from No. 1 to No. 10,000, and those persons holding Certificates, by forwarding them to the Commit tee appointed to receive them, will receive the numbered Envelope which corresponds with the number of the Certificate which tnev forwarded to the Committee, and which will exhibit to them the result.
