fVMVAU, I KNOW IT NOW. I beard her, oh ! how cautiously. Open my bedroom door; I heard her stop as noiselessly To my couch across the floor; I felt her hands my temples press, Her lips just touching mine. And, In my anguish and distress, 'Tw ere sinful to repine. Our pilgrimage is nearly through We've passed life's mountain brow; I thought I loved her years ago I know I love her now. Her face was hovering over mine, Her warm tears on my cheek ; Her whispered prayer, of thought divine, Koso fervently and meek. Her bosom rested on my arm, I felt its tremulous throe; I knew the cause of its alarm, And felt its source of woe. And the blood my system through Came pressing on my brow I thought I loved her years ago, I know I love her now. Thns watched that tned and patient one, Uy night as well as day In sadness and almost alone, Till weeks bad passed away. Bereft of sleep deprived of rest Oppressed borne down with care, Till, oh! her labor has been blest, For (lod has heard her prayer. Her check resumes Its genteel glow. And placid Is her brow I thought I loved her years ago, I know I love her now. ALL A MISTAKE. The Misery It Caused and Its Happy Explanation. It was a letter that caused all the trouble; alittle inoffensive-looking epis tle, and it nearly drove the man who found it mad with misery and pain. It read as follows: "My Deaii Chakme: You can not imagine bow much I would like to see you. 1 can n.t bear to think how far apart we are. You sum when I was married I would forget, you. Hut this letter will prove how mistaken you are, for I love you as much as ever. 'Distance makes the heart grow fonder,' you know. I will write you a long letter soon. I have much to tell you, but my time is limited to-day. Do write MXn, and tell me how much you miss me. "Yours, with love, "Ikene Hunter Depmout." It was summer time. The golden sunshine poured in through open win dow, the breezes stirred the grass, and the sweet perfume from the flowers was wafted into the room. The man with the letter in his hand stood as if turned to stone, trying to realize what he had just read. There was his wife's name in full, Irene Hunter Desmont." What could it mean? Who Vas Charlie? What a fool he was to think there was such a thing as perfect happiness in this world. He remembers having read in a paper that A-ery day yes, scarce two hours ago a few lines that at the time caused quite a little discussion. The lines conic back to him now with a new meaning: "Do not Hatter yourselves with hopes of perfect happiness, there is no such tiling in this life." He remembered reading it aloud, and some one spoke up, and said: "Exactly my sentiments, " and how indignant he had felt as he made reply. He remem bered glancing at his wife and meeting her fond look of love. He was convinced there was "perfect happiness1' in this life, and confident tnat no conui speak from experience, and now Hark! What Avas that? His wife's A-oicc, calling him. Laying the letter down on the desk a3 he had found it, he took from the back of a chair a little black silk and lace affair, called a "wrap," and stepped quickly through the low French window lead ing on to a veranda. In a A ery few minutes lie had descended tho steps, and joined a party of ladies and gentle men on the lawn. "Hollo, Phil! Your Avife has just gone into the house to look for you. JShe thought perhaps you could not lind her wrap; here she comes now." Philip Desmond glanced at his wife as she approached. How pretty she looked in that soft dress of crimson cashmere; she had the sweetest face imaginable, lit up by a pair of soft blue eyes that Avent straight to your heart every time they rested upon you, and beautiful rip pling hair, shining iu the sunlight like gold. "It is very easy for a man to love her!" thought Philip, as he folded the wrap around her slender form. Should he tell her Avhat he had readP No, not yet. He would wait ami Avatch her closely; if she mailed the letter there Avould be an answer, and he must see that, find out the man's name, and then he Avas not sure Avhat he would do then, but for the present he Avould wait. Six Aveeks ago Philip Desmont and Irene Hunter were married in th, little parlor at Irene's home. Under a beautiful floral bell composed entirelv of rosebuds they were pronounced man and wife, and received the hearty con gratulations of their many friends. Irene loved her husband as only such affectionate natures can love. She Avas only nineteen and Fhilip thirty two. Immediately after they were married Thilip had taken his bride to their future horn, some three hundred miles distant, and thero proudly introduced her to his friends. Irene had always appeared perfectly happy; she Avas young, naturally joy ousin disposition and a general favor ite Avith all who kneAv her. There were several young, married people living near them, and they all contrived to make the summer, (li ne's first among them, pass pleasantly. On this afternoon they had arranged for a game of tennis, and as Philip's laAvn afforded the hot tennis court they had met there for that purpose. After the tirst game, Philip had gone into the 1ioum for his wife's wrap, as she felt slightly chilly after so mia-h violent exert ion. Then it Avas that he had discovered the letter that seemed destined to ruin all his happiness. The smile of gayety i often assumed Avhile the heart may ache Avithin. And it was so in Philip's case. He managed to play through a game of tenni very creditably. Uut he felt relieved when it came to an end, and time for their friends to depart. Tho Det morning Philip was up long before Irene was aAvake. He could not sleep and decided a walk before break fast would do him good. Thus it happened that he entered the breakfast room before Irene. He paced the floor impatiently until he heard her step on the stairs. Then the door opened and Irene entered. She wjn dressed in a charming morning robo of delicate blue, and Philip thought she had never looked so innocent and sweet before. His heart ached ;is he folded her in his arms and kissed her again nnd again. "Oh, Irene, my darlinj, say you love me." "Love you? Why, Philip, yon kuow I love you that I never knew what it was to lore until I met you." "Are you sure you never loved any other man, Irene?" "Sure, Philip? Hoav strangely you talk. Of course I am sure." After they had finished breakfast Philip, instead of going at once to his office, as was usually his custom, lin gered by the windoAV, gazing out in an abstracted manner. Irene had always been in the habit of giving him her letters to mail, and this morning sho had not mentioned having any. As Philip stood looking out of the win dow, he Avas thinking of this. At last, taking up his hat, he said, carelessly: "Any letters to mail this morning, Irene?" To his surprise Irene jumped to her feet, exclaiming: "Charlie's letter! How could I be so forgetful? Wait just a minute, Phil." And she hurried out of the room. "Charlie's letter." Philip could not believe his ears. Evidently there "wa? a mistake somewhere. Presently Irene returned with a let ter in her hand which she AA'as folding ready for the envelope. "I am so glad you mentioned letters, Philip, for yesterday morning I Avrote to my old school chum, Charlotte Tracy, or "Charlie," as Ave ahvays called her, and forgot to give it to you." Hoav easily it was all explained. Philip had made himself miserable for nothing. How happy he Avas to prove it all a mistake. Some time he Avould tell hi3 Avife all about it, but not now. Jcffie F. JIanaford, in Commercial Traveler. CALIFORNIA VENEERS. The Jteauty and Durability of Pacific Coast Sycamore. California sycamore is a Avood that is as little known as it is handsome. It has the appearance of quantities of line vertical lines, close together and generally wavy. It looks very much like the Eastern beeehwood, and before its value for finishing and decorating was discovered it was used for cigar boxes. It is called button-wood in New York. Sj-eamorc is used princi pally for veneering, as it is very strong and can be cut easily. It is a. very un ostentatious Avood, being rather fine in its markings and quiet in its shades. For fancy decoration, panels of fur niture, doors and other places Avhere a highly-marked wood is required, the redwood, laurel, sycamore and Avalnut are greatly used. They are handsomely marked. The redwood is probably the most used, as it is not only cheap, but is very beautiful. More variety can be found in this Avood than in any other. The walnut is still used, but it is grad ually giving place to the fancier and more modern Avoods. The tendency noAvadays is to make furniture from lighter ami more fancier material than formerly, mid the sombre, gloomy walnut, wit h its massive appearance, is gradually giving place to the lighter woods. The finishing of a house is usually done by veneers, as it is cheaper and just as satisfactory as solid wood. The wood is cut into veneers of about one eighth of an inch in thicknes. and they are then planed and polished until reduced to the required dimension. In very hard Avoods, such as the mahoga ny, the veneers are very thin indeed, being a thirty-second of an inch in thickness and often thinner. The pol ishing is a sIoav and someAvhat labori ious job, and is often performed by a skilled and special man. It is done by rubbing the Avood Avith boiled linseed oil until it assumes a high polish. Onl' hard Avoods can be used, because others do not take a good polish, nor do they last for any length of time. It is only Avithin the last eight years that the finishing of houses in natural woods lias come into prominence at all, and up to a very fewyears ago this style of interior decoration Avas used by few except the rich and aisthetic, but of late it has sprung into deserved prominence. When two or more Avoods are combined the effect is often a-cry handsome, and the many who are using this method of finishing attest to its popularity. Tho Avood must be cut so as to bring out the figure of the markings of the Avood, otherwise it is worthless. To do this requires great skill and knowledge of the various Avoods. Occasionally an apparently Avorthless piece of wood is found that Avill contain some very line and striking markings, in Avhich case somebody usually makes a small for tune, for the prettier the markings the more valuable the wood. The Avood generally used comes from Santa Cruz. Occasionally a piece is found that av ill contain some perfect figure, such as an animal, a head or some geometrical figure. This Avood is, of course, voiy valuable and greatly prized. The figuring in wood is generally at tributed to the fact that the bark of a tree outgrows the interior, and then be comes Avrinkled it its attempts to fit it self to the tree. The tree comes to its assistance and attempts to till up the Avrinkles, thus causing the markings. Woods that grow in Avell-watered soil are always most highly marked on this account. Sa w-M ill Gazette- Fires and Falling Stars. The frequency of the fires in autumn as compared with the other seasons of the year is a mutter of familiar ob servation. M. Jenger, a French as tronomer, avIio has given a great deal of attention to the subject, seeks to es tablish a connection between these au tumnal fires and the falling stjir so numerous at the same period of the Aear in a paper read at the last meet ing of the A ademy of Science. He has been collecting statistics of these occurrences for several A ears past, and lie profess" to have discovered that a line draAvn on the map joining the points Avhere the different conflagra tions broke out in any given year forms a more or less regular eclipse repre senting Avhat he calls the "cone of dis persion" of the meteoric shower. It is not often that there is a 113" suspicion of malicious origin in the case of these, tires; but prosecutions are occasionally instituted, and M. Jenger thinks it ex t remedy probable that Avhere the case rested on circumstantial evidence, in nocent persons have noAV and again been wrongful- convicted. From this point of view in particular, he thinks his theory well worthy of the attention of scientific men. . James" Gasrttc "Thackeray could write best on an empty stomach."

Why a Redaction of the Tariff Would Benefit American Working-Men. The organs of a monopoly tariff are fond of referring to the Avages of En glish Avorkmen as a criterion by which the effect of a low tariff upon the wages of Avorking-men in this country may be foretold. They scrupulously aA'oid all consideration of the fact that in Germany, Avhere a high protective tariff obtains, the Avages of working tnen are loAver than in England. Nor do they tako into consideration the density of population in England as compared with the population of this country. If the twenty-live millions of English people were transferred to Pennsylvania and the fire million oi Pcnnsylvanians Avere in turn trans ferred to England, it is quite certain that Avages would be greatly reduced in Pennsylvania and correspondingly increased in England Avithout any change in the reA'enue laws of either England or the United States. Who is 60 stupid as not to be able to compre hend a truth so clear and indisputable? Again: it is a fact not to be disputed that the American working-man ac complishes at least twenty-five per cent, more in a given time than the English Avorking-man. American ma ehinery has approached perfection so much more nearly than that of foreign countries that the American manu facturer gels out of three days' work of his employes what the English man ufacturer can only get in four days. It is also true that the English skilled workmen Avill not and do not, as a rule, Avork on Saturdays, and being paid by the Aveek they receive for five days' Avork Avhat the American working-man gets for six days. So it ap pears that the American working-man, aided by superior machinery, gives hii employer for a week's wages a result which requires the English manufact' urer to pay his employe for eight clays and three-quarters of a day. Certainly wages of American working-men should and must be, under these cir cumstances, much higher than those received by English Avorking-men, but in proportion to the results accom plished by the working-men of England and the United States respectively those of the former are far better paid than those of the latter. It Avill be asked: Hoav comes it, then, that English manufacturers can under sell American manufacturers in our own markets? The ansAver is that in those lines of manufacture in which the English producer undersells his Amer ican competitor the cost of production to the latter is so greatly enhanced by the high tariff duties on raAV materials that he is unable to compete, and at times, when there is a great demand for a given product, as is now the case Avith iron, prices advance so that the foreign manufacturer can make a profit by selling loAver than the prices asked by his American competitor. No country under the sun but the United States puts a tariff on raAV materials used in its industries. Hence, not Avithstanding the fact that labor in this country now accomplishes more for less wages than the labor of England, the American manufacturer loses the home market partially and the mar kets of other countries entirely because of the stupidest and most barbarous tariff hiAvs that ever retarded the in dustrial progress of a 113 nation on the face of the earth. Harritburg latriot. THE DUTY ON SALT. A Monopoly Which Detervea the Atten tion oT l'.ennue ISeformers. Following Avhat seems to be some what of a craze as avcII as a legitimate movement, the salt producers of the country are forming a "trust." This may not result in increasing the price to the consumer, but the producers ev idently expect and hope that it will. Such an attitude 011 their part is a very curious way of repaying the special favor already extended to them by the laws of the land. The salt manufact urers are protected by a duty of about one hundred per cent, on the imported product. This, of course, operates to raise the price of the home article to that extent. It is very doubtful if, under any circumstances, such a tat would be productive of the greatest good to the greatest number. The salt manufacturers are exceedingly few, and their product is an article of com mon necessity in ever household. Certainly it is very oppressive to the dairymen avIio are compelled to pay an unnecessarily high price for that which they must use in large quan tities; whereas the meat and fish-packers are granted a rebate on the foreign salt they use, equivalent to the amount of duty paid. Now, avo protect the salt industry by a tariff, in order, by stimulating production, to develop and expand it. And here are the salt pro ducers forming a combination to limit and contract the output. Not satisfied with the artificial profit they are now making, they desire to raise the juice by uniting in a monopoly. In any scheme of tariff reform it Avould seem to be des'rable to add salt, which is es sentially a raw material, to the free list. Certa' lly if the producers try te lift the. mark t price they are only in viting the Avi.hdrawal of the excep tional faA-ors air ad 3 extended to them. Providence (It. I) Journal.

I am convinced that the popular ver dict is In this case not the correct one, and if these lines have an object, that object lies in the direction of a contri bution toward an effort to shoAv that the truly sentimental man or woman h.19 the best preparation toward the practical affairs of life. " As usual, philosoph3' is at fault. The word sentimental has suffered as much Reflection from its simple, real mean ing as has the word practical. The latter has come to stand for things real, the former for things unreal; or, if more liberal minds deny the strict truth of this designation, they vHU scarcel3r attempt to reject a modifica tion of it by Avliich it is claimed that to folloAv the practical a flairs of life is to folloAv the things which are cer tainly and surely the remunerat ive things of life, the things about which we actually knoAv, and whose value is real because it is in things seen and proven. While to follow things sentimental is to pursue a shad ow, or at least a thing which, if at tained, docs not respond to the de mands of a busy and effective human career. Nothing could be further from the loric of human experience. Every ! achievement has its beginning in the j mind. The Buddhists were right- hr I reality is in the thought. Here is tho j root of the deed. It is the man of true I sentiment only who has behind him and before him an effective human ca 1 reer. j A good mother AA-as lamenting to me the other day that her daughter, a j charming girl of sixteen, AA'as so un ! practical. As an illustration of this , quality, she repeated to me the ques tion Avhich her daughter had put to her ; in all good faith and sincerity: "How I does a person know Avhen a room has ; been swept?" This 'young woman ' needed to apply Goethe's maxim. She needed perception. For the produc tion of "Faust," or the SAveeping a room", the same sort of practicability is ' required. I do not know what is to be done with her. Her mother desires that she shall become occupied with the practical affairs of life, but I am j not sure that the mother's ideas of the : practical are sharp enough to strike at the root of the matter. To become truly and effective' practical one must see straight and feel right. It is a matter of pure perception and proper sentiment. When this right action of head and heart are obtained, the doing 'will folloAv and, whether a book is to be written or a room is to be swept, the thing in hand will be properly classed among the practical affairs of life. After this it is all a matter of preoc cupation. If the preoccupation be an affair, as in the case of my absent friend of pure sentiment, i. e., an affaire du caeur, it will, as in her case, deserve classification among the practical af fairs of life; her vast expenditure of "pure sentiment" Avas accompanied by a vast expenditure of pure perception, and prompt energy and good money to the infinite betterment of all con cerned. Had her preoccupation been the same, but without the rightness of sentiment and purity of perception, this affection of hers Avould have re sulted in a mere waste of feeling and woultl deserve classification among those wretched so-called affaires du caeur which can never arrive at the dig: ; nity of the practical affairs of life. The mother of the unpractical young girl says, and not Avithout a degree of '' satisfaction, that her daughter (avIio can not understand how a person can know when a room has been swept) is "all. for books." Very well. That is her preoccupation. Noav, if to this preoccupation she brings right senti ment and pure perception, her preoccu pation with books will result practi cally. If she has these she will know the difference between clean and un ' clean in the carpet of a room or the character of a book. But I greatly fear that healthy sentiment and clear perception are not at present backed 03- any sense of personal responsibility ; in this young girl's mind; and if so, : she has a great deal to learn before the things Avhich concern her can be said to belong to tiie practical affairs of life, j The root of all this Avhich groAvs into a busy and effective human career lies ' in the sense of duty Avhich develops per ception and sentiment into action, which determines preoccupation, and which brings out of all a performance which can be truly classed as among the practical affairs of life. Let this be the possession of the young girl and j she will become a pract ical woman; let ; it be the possession of the man of af j fairs and he Avill be a practical states- man; let it be the possession of a lit i eraryman and he will become a practi ! cal author.

The War Waged by Sumach and a Climb ing Kit ter-Swect, Some time ago my pupils Ave re much interested in tiruling Avliat they inap propriately termed a hand-to-hand con flict betAveen a sumach (Rhus typhina) and a climbing bitter-sweet (Celastrus stndcjis). Judging from the appear ance Avhen found, the sumach was about two inches in diameter when the bitter sweet first wound its coils about it. As the groAvth of each pro ceeded, these coils became tighter and tighter, cutting into and through the bark and growing layer of the sumach which seemed to be threatened Avith strangulation. It Avas not, hoAvever, to be so easiH' A'auquished. It reso lutely kept up it's manufac ture of new material, whic h, owing to the tight em brace of the A-ine, had to be distributed along a spiral line immediately above the coils. Just below the coils the supply appeared to be cut off, as the trunk was then shriveled and'in most places dead. Although" rendered un sightly, the tree presented the curious feature of having two spirals, one of living, growing, the other dead and de caying material avouihI about its hearj wood, so that the whole resembled a huge auger. To avenge this deformity the sumach proceeded to push its iicav growth out above ami over the coils of the A'ine un'il at one place it had completely encompassed it. The A'ine, in turn, avhs uoav so tightly squeezed as to be cut off from commu nication Avith the ground, and below this point but little life remained. Victory now seemed within the grasp of the sumach. The vine, how ever, in its last extreniiiy now united itself with the growing l-er of the sumach, and thus literally drew from the cause of the enemy Avhatever sup plies were needed to keep its top bright nd thrifty. At this stage the conflict was cut short by the age of the collect or, and the combatants, locked in each sther's arms, were laid awa" among .he curiosities of a museum. Jvurnil ' 'iu. iifton. SOME STRANGE CONFESSIONS. Several Good Stories Whlcli Convey Very Jieedful Jlorals. Tho Rochester (N. V.

I had one last week and fixed myself up a dose, but I didn't dara take it. I kept it over night and gav it to a 'deadhead' pa tient the next day 1" "Then you don't dare, take your own medicine?" "No ! I don't dare, and I havo no family physician." A pentleman, a short time ago, consulted his physician about a severe rheumatic at tack. As he was leaving, the doctor said : "Should my prescription afford any relief, let me know"it, as I am suffering from an affection similar to yours, and for the last twenty years have tried in vain to euro it 1" The best of physicians now haA'e tho frankness to admit that the schools have not yet mastered ail there is to know about the causes of disease, and the best methods of cure. There has been a great ad-ance, uo doubt, in medical science, m the last fifty years.

Byron died, it is claimed, because cf over bleeding by his physicians. Washington met the same late ! Scientific investigation shvvs that most ailments proceed from derangement of pri mary organs, of Avhich the kidneys are the most important.

A Hideous 011 Thug Tries His Terrible Arts on a Tourist. Many of tho great criminals whom I have seen bore in their faces a terrible warning of what they were; but with the Thugs of Jabapur it is not so. These hu man vampires who now gather round me, says a correspondent of the Philadelphia Press, every one of whom has taken more lives than any public executioner in Europe, are to the outward eye a set of quiet, slouching, meager old men, who might bo a gang of beggars, a group of harmless village foCt, a party o super annuated native workmen, or any thing on earth but what they really are. "That's the chief," whispers my guide, pointing to a small, lean, gray-beard, with a white turban, who is sitting before the nearest hut, rocking u. child on his knee, and stroking its thin, little, brown face with the hand that has shed the blood of his fellow men like water. "Ask him," rejoin I, "how many mur ders he has committed." A momentary gleam of cunning twinkles In his sunken eyes. Tha old tiger is evi dently suspicious, and staiid3 on . his guard. "I can not tll," he answers, with an in difference -which, under such circum stances, has in it something indescribably ghastly. "I didn't keep count of them be yond a hundred." "Now, before we go," says I to our con ductor, "I mean to see for myself how the strangling was done. Oblige me by telling this man to put his noose around my wrist, for I don't care to trust him with my throat." The savage eagerness with which the withered old skeleton obeys the call as if filled with fresh life by even the make-believe show of murder is fearful to see. Knotting a small coin into the corner of his handkerchief to give him a sure hold, he slips the noose rounTl my arm and then, bringing his knuckles together with a sudden twist, gives my wrist a squeeze and almost makes Wiebone orac!;. The awful change that passes over his face at this moment baflles all de scription. His dull, flimsy eyes seem to blaze with hell-lire, his sharp, white teeth are laid bare in a wolfish grin, his shriv eled, corpse-liko features quiver with a ferocious joy so fiendish that an actual demon starring up before me could scarce ly be more appal ing. The thought of that face bending over some helpless man in the gloomy depths of the forest, just as the fatal noose tightened, is altogether too much for my nerves, and it is with a long breath of relief that I find myself outside the fatal inclosure once more- An Addition t "lien II ur."
