Philadelphia Call. ' "Yon are seiiifus tbia evening," said Mrs. LancUH to ber husband. "I hope nothing baa gone wrong during the day?" Mr Landell.who had been sitting with bis eyes upon the floor, silent and ab stracted for some miuutets, roused him self at these words, and looking np at his wife smiled as he answered: ' Oh, no! Nothing has gone wrong " "Don't yon feel well f" Tne voice of Mrs. Laadell was just shaded with con cern. , . "Wei! enough ra body but not so com fortable in mini as I desire." "Then something has gone wrong T" said the wife. ' Hr manner was slightly troubled. ' Nothing more than usual," Mr. Lan dell replied. ' The forced smile bad faded from bis countenance. Mrs. Lindell sighed." ''"' Thf-n usual ?" She ' reppated the words, looking with earnest inquiry into her husband's face; then she added ten derly : "Bring home your trouble, dear Don t hide anything. Let. me share with on all the good and ill of life. Hearts draw nearer in suffering than they do in "BleBs your kind heart. Alice," said Mr. Landell.a broad smile sweeping over his face as be caught ber round checks in bis bands and kissed ber. "lbere isn't anything in the case so serious as that comes to. I'm not going to fail in business haven't lost anything worth peaking about ; haven't cheated anybody and don't Intend doing so. It's only this hasty, impulsive temper of mine that is all (he while leading me to do or say something that leaves a sting." Tne clou t passed from the face of Mr. Landell. You will overcome that in time, E I- ward," said she encouragingly. "1 can't see that I make any progress Yesterday I spoke sharply to ono of my young men when a mild reproof would have been luster and of more salutary effect. He is sensitive, and my Words hurt him severely. The shadow that re mained on his face all day was my per pe'usl rebuke, and I felt it long alter the sun went down. My punishment wa9 greater than bis. But the les-oo of yes terday did not suffice. This morning I was again betrayed into captions lan guage that wounded the same young man and threw bim so much off Jil- guard that be answered me back with some feeling. This 1 regarded as im pertinence, and tbreateued Vo dismiss bim from my service if he dated Venture a repetition cf the language. When feel ing subsided nd thought became clear agair.) I saw hat 1 had been Wrong and done wrong, and I have felt unhtppy about it ever since, I wish that I bad more self control ; that I could bridle my tongue wbvn feeling is suddenly spurred. But temperament and long-indulged bab' its ae both against me." Mrs. Landell encouraged and toothed ber husband, and bo won his mind away from its brooding self-reproaches On the next morning as Mr, Landell was about leaving for his warehouse, his wife looked up at bim and, with a mean ing smile, said i "Don't 1" There was just the slightest percept! ble warning In her tone "Don't what ?" Mr. Lmdell seemed a little puzzled 4 Don't forget yourself." "Ob i" Light' broke in upon bis mind 'Tnank you; I will not!" And he went forth to meet the trials of the day. ': Almost the first thing that fell under the notice of Mr. Landell was an im portant letter which, after writing, he had given to the clerk to copy and post Instead of being where it should have been it lay upon bis desk. Neglect like that seemed to be unpardonable 'John!" He called sharply to a young man at the farther end of the warehouse, "Don't 1" It seemed like the voice of his wife in his ears.. "Don't forget your self!" . This mental warning came just in sea son. The clerk came quickly toward him. By the time he reached the desk of Mr.-Landell the latter was under self control. Why was not this letter posted,.Jobn ?' The tone was neither imperative nor cap tious, but kind, and the question asked in a way that said : "Of course there is a good reason for the omission ?" And so there was. "I tbiuk, sir," answered John, "that there is a mistatte, and I thought it best not to put the letter in the post." t. rv mi And Mr. Landell opened the letter.:' Z 'It reads," said the clerk, -300 cases of calicos." ;- Oh, no Ihirtv cases." replied Mr Lindell Rut as he said 30 h!s eyes rest; ed on 300. "So it is! How could 1 have made such an error? You were right, John, in not sending the letter away." ' . The clerk went back to his place and the merchant said to himself ; "How glad I am that' I was able to control myself 1 If 1 had spoken to that young man as 1 felt I would have wronged and alienated him and made trouble-for mvsvirtl .uv" . . .i.;.3s.. Not long nfu r "this a"caee of goods fell through one of the hatch wava, crash ing dwn upon the landing with a noise that caused Mr. Landell, whose temper ament vfas exceedingly nefous.to spring to his feet. To bUme some one waa his Q'St impu'se. "What careless fellow has done this?" was on hi tongue. "Don't!" The inward monitor npiko in time Mr. Landell shut his lips tightly and kept silent until he could commandhim self. He then calmly inquired into the cause of the accident and found that spe cial blame attached to no one. On open ing the case of goods the damage was found to he trifling. "Another conquest," said Mr Lindell as be went back to his desk. "Self-con trol is easy enough if the trial be made in earnest " A dozen times that day was the torch applied to Mr. Laudeli's quick temper, and as often was be in danger of blozing out. But be had begun right and he kept right until the sun went down And then he turned his step home ward, feeling more comfortable in mind than he had felt for many weeks. There was no shadow on bis countenance when be met bis wife, but smiling good hu mor. "You said 'Don't !' as I left you this morning. '.. "Well?" And 1 didn't!" "You are a hero," said Mrs. Lindell laughing. "Not much of a one. The conquest was easy enough when I diew the sword in earnest." "And you feel better ?" "Ob, a thousand times! What a curse of one's life this quick temper is! I am ashamed of myself half a riozn times a day on an average. But I bavo made a good beginning and mean to keep on right until the end " "Don't J" said Mrs Lsndell to her hus band as she parted with him at the front door the next morning. "I won't!'' was the hearty answer. And he didn't, as the pleasant evening be passed with bis wife at the close most clearly testified. Reader, if yon are quick tempered Don't! The Family of Gen. Grant Gather Around the Catafalque and lake - A LAST FAREWELL OF THEIR DEAD in the Parlor ot the Little Cottage on jut. jticuregor, Dr. JNewruan. Usiujr the Dead. Soldier's Bible Mr. McGregor, August 2. This has been memorial day at the Grant cottage and the family have been saying farewell to the dead. This a'ternoon the widow asked that Dr Newman should be sent for, and .when be came Mrs Grant re minded the paetor that ber dead would be hers only a little wh.le longer and asked him to be with the family while they gathered in the cottage parlor to say their farewells Thus it was that about t o'clock Mrs. Grant and her daughter and each of ber three sons and their wives were in the room with the dead Dr Newman and wife were also present. Ttie family surrounded the catafalque Mrs, Grant from the table brought ber dead husband's Bible, winch she opened and passed to Dr. Newman who found that the book was opened at the II th chapter of Job. The chapter was read and then the clergyman reread the I6tli and 17ib Verses, and then a prayer of gratitude was offered np from the beau tiful character of the words, Af'er this the family, there alone with their pastor, entered into a religious conversation and then each and all dwelt upon reminiscen ces recalled of the General's last sick ness. ' D . Newman, after carefully scanning the General's face, expressed satistac'.ion at its appearance and the opinion that the remains were in a condition of per feet preservation. Healthful Vigor tor the Girls. Mrs. Livermore says, in one- of ber lectures on Girls, "I would give to" girls equal intellectual and industrial training with boys Yes, and give them tq tally good health, too," When your girls are suffering from paleness and debility, it is a sign that their blood is' poor and thin, and that they need Brown's Iron Bitters The only preparation of iron that can be taken safely. Mies Batton, Chestnut at., L'luisvllle, Ky , says, "Brown's Iron Bitters cured me of rheu matism when everything elsd bad failed." Lightning Almost Striken the Spot. New York, July 30 While a large force of workmen, at work on the foun dation for ttie temporary vault for Gen. Grant's body, at Riveisi ie Park, yester day, a violent storm came up. The workmen had hardly secured shelter in a neighboring house when a terrific stroke of lightning descended close to the spo where tuey bad been working. It struck one of the large oak trees on the bluff and shattered it to pi' cas. That Dirty Dandru.fl. Dandruff is dirty and disagreeable in every way. It soils the clothing con tinually, and Is accompanied by a hardly less annoying sensation of itching. The scalp is diseased.

TIBBELL. )?'Ob.dear!" : It was a sigh of weariness, and poor. Tired Mrs Clifford sank for a moment into a luxurious easy chair. Perhaps I should not say ' poor." Her husband W8s called bv his friends "comfortably w'tll off" Tired, ste certainly was. Prom dawn till dark her feet mus be in every place, ber bands must toil that there must be no creak nor Jar in the hxaebold machinery Kitchen girls she had" tried, but. they "only brought extra care) she said, and she waa glad to be in dependent. To-day she had beea nnus ually busy and the parlor bad been left undusted till afternoon. That was why she happened in while ber daughter's city friends were there. Of course she hastily retreated. Close by the door stood that inviting chair, and for once Mrs. Clifford yielded to her longing for rest She could bear the gay voices in the other room but took no no tice of them until Izzte exclaimed light ly: "Oh, that was only the woman who works for m. She did not know any one was here. What were you saying about the bride, Madge ?" And then the talk followed on as be fore, broken now and then by a ripple of laughter. Mrs. Cliff rd beard no more. She forgot her pain and weariness; she forgot the pile of sewing awaiting ber in another room. L ke a flash ber mind traveled back nearly a score of years Izzie and R?ba were babies again and she was a proud young mother. Her husband's means were limited, but they must wear the finest embroideries, and by denying herself every luxury' and many comforts she could keep them clothed as she wished. They were early given the nicest tid-bits at the table, and what wonder if they soon looked upon mother's share of good things as their own ? They were pretty children, and as they grew older sae prided herself npon keeping them daintily dressed. To be sure this involved saciiffce on her part. She had loved books, but it took so much time to read these must be given up ''for the children a sake." She must sit up late nights to sew ; she must wear her cloak the third winter and have ber best dress made over once more in order that l22ie might have that charming hat with plumes or Eeha the bead trimming she so much desired Did they help about the work? O t, no ! At first she could not bear to have them soiling their clothes in the kitchen besides hindering ber. Liter, they were too busy with studies or practice or some rehearsal. ' By the time they reached younz girl hood, ber husband's income warranted the best teachers, and theyt being q rick and bright, did credit to their instruc tors. His income tlao warranted her many hours ot leisure; but alas! so long had she lived ''for the children" that it seemed impossible to make any change. N)hody could do np the muslins or pre pare food like mother, Her husband had long since ceased to look to her lor intellectual companion ship. It was the girls with .whom he tilked science and politics. When he wanted music they played and sang. Ii he went to a lecture or a concert they accompanied - him. Her own mission seemed fulfilled in a well cooked meil or nickly ironed shirt. What a mistake she bad made) It rushed upon her now, as sue Sink back into the easy chair with those words ringins all sorts of changes over and ver in her ears: "The woman who works for ua! the woman who works for us!" But the callers must have gone. The outer door has opened and shut, and hark! the girls are talking again. It is Reba's voice: "Oh, Izzie! how could yon?" I know it was perfectly awful, but what could I do? If mother would only dress decently and get used tc so ciety, we should n6t have to be ashamed of her when any one comes. It's all her own fault." Ashamed of her! The children who bad cost ber so many wakeful nisjh's, sn many anxious thoughts, ashamed of ber! . Mrs. Clifford arose mechanically and went to her room. There she did some thing very unu ual for her. She spent at least five minutes gazing at her own reflection in the g)as. Not a prepos sessing figure, certainly. Her dress, a plain calico, guiltless of even a collar; her hair combed straight back, twisted in the smallest possible knot at the back of her bead, and the face could that be the face that once had been called beau tiful? Ni wonder the woman heaved a sigh, as she saw bow faded and wrinkled it had become. As she g&3d a resolute look came into the grsy eyes. "Ashamed of me, and my own fault' They shall never have occasion to say that again." A quick knock sounded a1, her door. O.i, mother! Miss Tebhets has sent home my polonaise, and trimming is all wrong. Won t you change it to night ? I must have it to wear to Mattie Dyer's to-morrow, you know." Mrs. Clifford dated not trust herself to fane the girl " lou will have time to change it your self, Rviba. I am going to the lecture, and some one must remain at home " There was a moment of amasad si lence, then retreating footsteps. After ward Bhe heard Reba s surprised What do you tuink will happen next? Mother's coing to the lecture !'' air. (Jtifford, wben be came home, was no lets surprised than bis daughters had been, but there was a pleased look on his f ice it did ber good to see. - Still, ber heart almost failed ber when she came to review her scanty wardrobe. The black ailk was still eoo i, though a little old-fashioned, But her bonnet and gloves and that cloak ! Nj, she could not mortify her husband by wear ing them. She must stay at home. A ruUle outside of her door, a tap, aud the two girls flat ered in. "Now, mother, we are J'ist going to fix you ourselves. S t right down and let me arrange your hair, while Izzie puts.that dark plume on ber bonnet in place ot the fr ight one. ' My cashmere shawl is exactly what you want, and ber glovea will fit vou to a 'T.' How the girls will open their eyes when they see what a hand8onje mother we're got I" And Mrs Clifford could scarcely keep tears from falling as tin thought, "It was my own fault. They have been thoughtless and selfish only because I tanaht them to be." Ready at last The carriage hsd not yet come, and tbey wa ted for a moment in tue hall she and her husband. How the old girlish blushes would come at he stooped and kissed ber ! Then he softly whispered : ' You look just as you did twenty vears ago, Mary. I'm so glad to have my little wifa back again." . I need not a -id taatHu evening waa m thoroughly erj vahl one. N'xt morning there was a council of three in the bck parlor. Mis. Clifford stated that she must have more lime for society and men'al improvement. She could hire help, but it would be better for all concerned for Izzie and R-iba to learn something of housekeeping. Izzie held up her fair white, hands and asked how ihev would look plating the piano, covered with scars and potato aiah. R ba didn't see bow tbey could find time, they bad so much to do al ready. Mrs. CiJord stood firm, and the council en led in the kitchen with tne two girls washing the breakf.st dishes Daring the next few weeks there were some merry times in that kitchen, but more trjiog ones. Reba would he elated beyond measure over a well-browned loaf of bread, w: ile Izz e was in deopuir of a well-browned si irt bsom. Izzie displayed ith pride the shining silver her hauls hat polished, wbiie R;ba hid the shl ;ing napkins over which s'.ie bad apset the gravy bowl. Such Is tbe in consistency of ki'chen perfection. More than once the mother felt like abandoning ber plans. It would be eo much easier to do it all herse'f But she p issefSid the gift of terseveraiica, and after ahile the household machin ery moved on as smoothly as ever, and much, more easily no that there were six hands instead of two to turn the wheels. Parlor company no longer won lered where the mo'her was, and the d u jhtr-is grew more delighted every day with ber whose acq jaintanoe they were j Ht forming. . General Lee tu 1800. . Gen. Riberl Elmund L e visited the capitol on the afternoon of February 17, 1866, and I accidentally met him in one of tbe corridors. He recognized me at once, and, after an exchange of saluta tions, inquired the way to the room oc cupied by tbe Join committee on recon struction. 1 escorted bim to the door, and I afterward learned that be was rather coldly reoelved on bis entrance by the sub-committee on Virginia, which was Mr. Washburn, of Illinois, Conk ling, of New York, and Blow, of Mis souri. He appeared to feel tbe manner in which be was received, and submitted to a long elimination, which did' not elicit any new fact. Indeed, he was quite reticent, and did not volunteer any remark beyond the proper answer to the question put to him. a He said that, so- far as he had oppor tunities for learning, the people of Vir ginia had aooepte 1 tbe result of the war in good faith and wore anxious for a re stored amity in the Uiion. When press ed by a question he was said to have in timated that the feeling for the Union was mash stronger Jut after tue close of the war than at that time, and there appeared to him to be some impatience among tba people that mn who had not been identified with the war in the s uth should be prevented from representing their states in Congress. He declared that there was a disposition to treat the freedmen well for their own interest as well aa for that of the white people. He expressed a decided hope that tbe gov ernment might endure for all time, and regarded the course of President John son and Gen. Grant toward the south as liberal and humane. It was plain to the committee (hat Gen Lee found himtel in a verv unpleasant position, and he did not communicate very freely. A crowd awaited bis appearance from the committee poom, and followed him from Ihe capitol down Pennsylvania av enue to bis ho'el. A large number of people cille I upon bim, but be avoided, as far as p issible, all publicity. The stenographer's notes, wben written out, were sent to bim for correction, and he made a few changes. Ben; Perky Peon Ex-Surgeou Geu. Wales's Sentence. Washington, July 31. The fl ldings of the Nival Court-Martial, before which ex-Surgeon Gen. Wales was recently tried, were made public to-day. The Court sentences him to suspension from rank and duty for five years', on furlough pay, and to retain his present number in his grade during that period. Dr. Wales was tried for culpable in efficiency in the performance of duly and for neglect of duty. He was found guity on both charges.

He next proceeded to talk about grievances, and showed bow he came back to tbe country to benefit the half breeds alone. He spoke in English, and said be would try and do his best to he understood.- He would yet be justi fi -d. He sought to bring about prac tical results, and when he was dad, which might he soon, be hoped his spirit would yet bring about practical results.
