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
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
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
"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
"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
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
His heart ached ;is he folded her in
his arms and kissed her again nnd
"Oh, Irene, my darlinj, say you
"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
Irene had always been in the habit
of giving him her letters to mail, and
this morning sho had not mentioned
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,
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
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.

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
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-

The frequency of the fires in autumn
as compared with the other seasons of
the year is a mutter of familiar ob

tablish a connection between these au
tumnal fires and the falling stjir so

senting Avhat he calls the "cone of dis

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

been wrongful- convicted. From this
point of view in particular, he thinks
his theory well worthy of the attention

THE QUESTION OF WAGES.
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.

AFFAIRS OF THE HEART.
What Miss Cleveland Has to Say Abeut
Sentimental Men and Women.
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

folloAv the practical a flairs of life is
to folloAv the things which are cer

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

mands of a busy and effective human
Nothing could be further from the

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

DUEL BETWEEN PLANTS.
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

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. Doctors themselves do not tako
their own physic, even though they may sat
urate the systems of their patients Avith
poisonous drugs, nor do they bleed, blister
and torture, a3 formerly.
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. Every drop of blood cours
ing1 through the system passes through
these organs, and if they are deranged, the
blood speedily becomes Impure, and carries
the seeds of disease to every part of tho
boay. If we keep these organs regulated
by "the use of a simple vegetable com
pound like Warner's safe cure, which

of health analyst, of the Rochester
University, says: "I find entirely free
from mercury and all poisonous and
deleterious substances" there is little dan
ger of bright's disease, apoplexy, rheuma
tism, or any of the common ailments, nearly
all of which originate in or are made fatal
by diseased (though unsuspected) kidneys.
This great remedy husthe reputation, which
seems Avell founded, of curing more diseases
than any one other remedy ever knoAvn. It

Schmidt of 09 Wall street, New York, from
Bright's disease, and General Christiansen,
of Drexel, Morgan & Co.- Bankers of New

a wonderful remedy.
As appropriate to the doctors who give to
their patients what they will not take them
selves, we quote this story :
"Oh, Mr. Smith, help me out," exclaimed
a young lady at a church fair. "I've sold a
tidy for tlu'that only cost 15c. What per
centage is the profit?"
"Percentage, madam?" exclaimed the
laAvyer Avith merriment. "That transaction
is beyond percentage it is simply larceny!"

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

"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

"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
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
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."
Recently a new lino has been put in
Lew Wallace's "Ben II nr." It is on the
dedicatory page, which was formerly in
scribed To the wife of my youth.
Now he has added the line:
AViio still abides with me.
A friend of the Author explained tho
other day that (Jeneral Wallace received
so many consolatory and sympathetic
letters from readers of "Ben Hur" who
thought a deep grief and lasting sorrow
were associated with the wife of his
youth that it was necessary to inform
them that she was also jhe loving wife of
his old age.

Funeral of a Chinas Sailor.
A sailor belonging to a Chinese vessel
lying at Spithefed, England, died recently,
and was Iraried in tho cemetery there.
After the coffin had been lowered, four
sailors, who occupied a position at the
foot of the grave, produced in succession
a tin pail, a parcel of matches, a number
of feggota and various pieces of brown
paper. A fire having been kindled, out of
the pail were brought forth several plates,
which were disposed round the fire, a
lump of pork, various pieces of meat, a
few eggs and a quantity of salt and sand.
These, having been divided Into fives,
were cooked and placed on the plates, and
on the consummation of the sacrifice they
were all gathered together and returned
to the pail. A sailor now partly filled in
the grave, after which the captain of the
&liip and a couple of subordinate offlcera
came forward and prostrated themselve
three times, uttering prayer at each genu
flexion. This completed the ceremony.
