EARNING A WIFE.
BY MARY GRACE HALPINE.
'And so you want to - marry my
daujrhter, youncr man,' said farmer Blif-
kins, removing the pipe from his mouth
and looking at the young fellow sharp
ly from head to toe.
Despite bis rather indolent, effemin
ate air, which was mainly the result of
his education, Luke Jordan was a tine
Iookinir fellow, and not easily moved
from his self-possesRion ; but he colored
and grew confused beneath that sharp,
scrutinizing look. ,
'Yes, sir. I spoke to Miss Mary last
evening and she she referred, roe to
The old man's face eoftened. ...
'Molly is a good girl, a very good
girl,' he said, stroking his chin with a
thoughtful air, 'and she deserves a good
husband. What can you do'
The young man looked rather blank
al this abrupt inquiry.
'If you refer to my ability to support
a wife, 1 can assure you
'I know that you ara a rich man,
Luke Jordan, but I take it for granted
that you ask my girl to m;irry you, not
your property. What guarantee can
you give m, in case it should be swept
away as it is in thousands of instances
that you could provide for her a com
fortable home? You have hands and
brains do you know how to use them J
Again I ask what can you dof
This was a style of catechism for
which Luke was quite unprepared, and
be stared blankly at the questions with
'1 believe you managed to get through
college have you a profession V
No, sir; 1 thought
'Have you a trade!'
'No, sir; my father thought that with
the wealth I should inherit, I should
not need any.
1 our father thought like a fool, then.
He'd much better have given you some
honest occupation and cut you off with
a shilling it might have been the mak
ing of you. As it is, what are you fit
for? Here you are, a strong, able
bodied roan, twenty-four years old, and
never earned a dollar in your life ! You
ought to be ashamed of yourself.'
'And you want to marry my daugh
ter V resumed the old man. after a few
vigorous puff's at bis pipe 'Now I've
given Molly as good , advantages for
learning as any girl in town, and she
hasnt thrown eui away; but if she
didn't, know bow to work, she'd be no
daugbter'of mine. If I choose, I could
keep more than one servant; but I don t
no more than I choose that my daugh
ter should be a pale, spiritless creature,
full of dyspepsia, and all manner of fine
lady ailments, instead of the smiling,
bright-eyed, rosy-cheeked lass she is.
did say that she should marry no lad
that had been cursed with a rich father;
but she's taken a foolish liking to ye,
and tell ye what I'll do: go to work, and j
prove yourself to be a maii; perfect
yourself in some occupation 1 don't
care what, so it be honest; then come
to me, and, if the girl is willing, she is
As the old man said this, he deliber
ately knocked the ashes out of his pipe
against one of the pillars of the porch
where be was sitting, tucked it into his
vest pocket, and went into the bouse..
rretty Mary Blifkins was waiting to
see her lover down at tho u'ard6n-gat,
their usual trysting place. The smiling
light faded from her eyes as she noticed
Ins sober discomfited look.
'Father means well,' she said -fter
Luke told her the result of his applica
'And I'm not sure but what be said
is about right,' she resumed, after a
thoughtful pause, 'for it seems to me
that every man, be be rich or poor,
ought to have some occupation.'
Iben, as she noticed her lover s grave
look, she added softly :
. 'Never mind ; I'll wait for you, Luke.
Luke Jordan Middenly disappeared
from his accustomed haunts, much to
the surprise of bis gay associates. But,
wherever he went, he carried with him
in bis exile these words, and which
were like a tower of strength to his
soul, 'I'll wait for you, Luke.
One pleasant, sunshiny morning, late
in October, as fanner Blifkins was prop
ping up the grape-vine in his front
yard, that threatened to break down
with the weight of its luxurious bur
dens, a neat-looking cart drove up, from
which Luke Jordan alighted with a
quick, elastic spring, quite in contrasts
to his formerly easy, lsurely move
ments. 'Good morning, Mr. Blifkins. I un
derstood that you wanted to buy some
butter tubs and cider barrels. 1 think
that I have some here that will just suit
, 'Whose make are thuy V inquired the
old man, as, opening thegate he paused
by the wagon.
'Mine,' replied Luke, with au air of
pardonable pride; 'and I challenge any
cooper in the State to beat them.'
Mr. Blifkins examined them critical
ly one by one.
They'll do,' he said coolly, as be set
down the last of the lot. 'What will
ye ask for them,'
'What I asked you for six months
ago to-day your daughter, sir.'
The rougish twinkle in the old man's
eyes broadened into a smile.
You've got the right metal in you after
all, he cried- 'Come in, fad come in,
I shouldn't wonder if we make a trade,
Nothing loth, Luke obeyed.
'Molly,' brawled Mr. Blifkins, thrust
ing his head into the kitchen door.
Molly tripped out into the entry, The
round, white arms were bared above
tbe elbows, and bore traces of tbe flour
she had been sifting. Her dress was a
neat gingham, over which., was tied a
blue checked apron ; but she looked as
winning and lovely , as she always did
wherever she was found.' . ..:. .,,
She blushed and smiled as she saw
Luke, and then turning her eyes upon
her father,' waited, dutifully,' to hear
what he had to say. i'V '." '" "'.
'The old man regarded his daughter
for a moment with a quizzical look." "
'Molly, this young man mayhap
you've seen him before, has brotfght me
a lot of tubs and barrels, all of bis own
make a right good article, toO: " He
asks a pretty steep price for 'em ; but if
your are willing to give- lt well and
good ; and hark ye,. my girl,' whatever
bargain you make your old father will
ratify.' ; .., , - -...... . .,.,
, As Mr. Blifkins said this,' be consid
erately stepped out of tbe room, and we
will follow his .example- .But the kind
of bargain the young people, made can
readily be conjectured . by the speedy
weddiner that followed. '
' Luke Jordan turned his attention to
the study of medicine, of which 'profes
sion he became a useful and influential
member; but every year, on tbe anni
versary of his marriage, he delights his
father-in-law by some specimen of the
handicraft by which be won what' be
declares to be the best and dearest
wife in the world.' ' '
A Lady's Opinion of a Lady's
. Mrs. Stephens, in ber monthly mag
azine, givea a certain class of men,' tbe
like of whom are seen in every com
uiuGity, the benefit of ber opinion, as
follows: - -
Our own private opinion on the
'lady's man' is, that be is thoroughly
contemptible a sort of life hardly
worth thinking about a nutshell with
tbe kernel withered up a handful of
loam uniting over the wine of life-rT-someUiing
not altogether unpleasant to
the fancy, butof . no earthly use, A wtv
man of sense would, a. jsoon be put to
sea in a man-of-war made of shingles,
or take up residence, ia a card, house,as
dream ..of attaching herself to, a, lady
lover. t .., .,. ..,,, j-
Women worth the- name are seldom
deceived into thinking our lady's man
the choicest specimen of his s-x. What
ever their ignorance may , be, womanly
intution must tell them . that the men
who live for a great object, aud whose
spirits are so firmly knit tb&fc they are
able to encounter tbe storms. (Of life
men whose depth and warmth of feeling
resemble the powerful, current of a
mighty river, and not the bubbles on
its surface who, if they Jove are .never
smitten by mere beauty of form and
featutes these men are , more worthy
even of occupying their thoughts in idle
moments than the fops and men about
town with whose attentions they amuse
themselves, If . we were to tell . him
this he would only laugh; he has no
pride about hrm, although full, of vanu
ty, and it matters not to him what we
may broadly affirm or quietly insinuate.
Soft and delicate though be be, be
is as impervious to ridicule as a bod
carrier, and as regardless of honest con

[From the new life of Sheridan going
through the press in Cincinnati.]
.. General Sheridan bad arrived at
Winchester tho night before, on bis way
back from the consultation at Washing
ton, to' w hich he had been ordered. I n
the naornyg artillert flriBjwB heard,
,bui it was attributea to an intended re
i;6nnoisance, and nothing was thought
of it -After an early breakfast, Sheridan
mounted arid trotted "quietly through
Winchester, southward. ,A mile from
tbe town the first fugitives from the. lost
field werft encountered. He instantly
gave orders to park the retreating train
on either side of the road,, directed the
greater part of his escort to follow as
best they couldj then with only, twenty
cavalrymen accompanying bim, he
struck out in a swinging gallop for tbe
scene of danger. As he dashed up the
pike the -crowds of stragglers grew
thicker., He reproached none; only,
swinging his cap, with a cheery smile
for all,, he shouted: "Face the other
way, boys, face the other way. We are
going back to our camps. We are
going to lick them out of their boots."
Less classic, doubtless, than Napoleon's
"My children, we will camp on the
battle-field, as usual;" but tbewound
ed raised tbeir hoarse voices to cheer
as be pasred, and the masses of fugi
tives turned and followed bim to the
front As he rode into tbe 'forming
lines, tbe men quickened their pace back
to - tbe- ranks, and., everywhere glad
cheers went op. '. '."Boys, this nevsr
should have happened if I - bad been
here, " he exclaimed to one and another
regiment "I tell 'you it never should
have happened. And now we are go
ing back to our camps. '.We are going
to get a twist on them ; we'll get the
tightest twist on them, yet that ever you
'saw. We'll have all those camps and
cannon back again I" - Thus be rode
along the lines, rectified the formation,
cheered ''and animated the soldiers.
Presently there grew np across that pike
as compact a body of infantry and
cavalry. as that which, a raenth before,
had sent tbe enemy, " whirling through
Winchester."' His men. bad full faith
in tbe " twist" he was "going to get
on tbe victorious foe; bia presence wa
inspiration, his commands were victory.
While the line was thus reestablished, '
he was in momentary expectation of
attack. , Wright's Sixth Corps was some
distance in the rear. One staff officer
after another was sent after it- Finally
Sheridan himself dashed down to hurry
it up; then back to watch it going into
position'."'' As be thus stood, looking off
from tbe left, be saw the enemy's col- '
umni once molfel moving np. Hurried
warning' was sent to tbe Nineteenth
Corps,"onwhich'it was evident tbe at
tack would fail. By this time it was
after three o'clock. 1 "
The Nineteenth Corps, no longer
taken by surprise, repulsed the enemy's
onset.' I '.'Thank God for that," said :
Sheridan, gaily. -" Now . tell General '
Emery if they attack bim again to go
after them, "and follow them up. We'll
get the tightest twist on them pretty
soon they ever saw." .The men heard
and believed him ; the demoralization of
the defeat was gone. . But still he wait
ed. Word had been sent in from tbe
cavalry of danger from a heavy body
moving on his flunk. He doubted it,
and at last determined to run the risk.
At four o'clock the orders went out:
"The whole line will advance. The
Nineteenth Corps will more in connec
tion with the Sixth. The right of tbe
Nineteenth will swing toward tbe left-"
: ..The enemy lay behind ston fences,
and where these failed, breastworks of
rails eked out his line. For a little he
held bis position firmly. His left over
lapped Sheridan's right, and seeing this
advantage, he bent it down to renew
the attack in flank. ; At this critical
moment Sheridan ordered a charge of
Geneial Mc Williams' brigade against
the angle thus caused in the rebel line.
It forced its way through, and the rebel
flanking party was cut off. Caster's
cavalry was sent swooping down upon
it it broke, and.fled or surrendered, ac
cording to tbe agility of the individuals.
Simultaneously the whole line charged
along the front; the rebel line was
crowded- back to the creek; the difficul
ties of the crossing embarrassed it, and
as the victorious ranks swept np it broke
in utter confusion.
Custer charged down in the fast -gathering
darkness to the west of the
pike; Devin to the east of it; and on
either flank of the fleeing rout they
flung themselves. Nearly all the rebel
transportation was captured, tbe camps
and artillery were regained; tip to Fish
er's hill the road was jammed w:th
artillery, caissons, and ambulances;
prisoners came streaming back faster
than the Provost Marshals could pro
vide for them. ' It was tbe end of
Early's army ; the end of campaigning
in the beautiful Valley of the Shenan
doah; . ... ..; ; .. .
; The effect upon the Government and
tie country was electric. The first
rumors of disaster were painful and
wide-spread. 'On the heels of these
came Sheridan's dispatch, annonncing .
the reverse and its retrieval, and giving
a faint hint of the splendid prizes ar
tillery for an army, transportation, am
munition, small arms in a profusion that
could scarcely be estimated. General
Grant telegraphed from his position be
fore Richmond : . " I bad a salute of
one hundred guns from each of tbe
armies here fired in honor of Sheridan's
last victory. Turning what bid fair to
be a disaster into a glorious victory,
stamps Sheridan what I always thought
him, one of the ablest of generals."
The Secretary of War endorsed and
published this to the world. The
resignation of General McClellan soon
made a vacant Major-Generalship in
the regular army, and to this highest
pri.e in bis profession Sheridan was
It was a giddy height to which our
modest little red-faced Captain, who
thought be might yet be a Major, had
risen ; but bis head was not turned, lie
did not even give vent to his exultation
in congratulations to bis army. Every
one realized onr success " so be wrote
soon after in bis official roport "con
gratulatory orders were unnecessary,
and every officer and man were made
to understand that when a victory was
gained it was no more than their duty
nor less than their country expected
from her gallant sons." But the country
could at least make its own congratula
tions. The name of Cavalry Sheridan
was in all mouths. His exploits became
tbe favorite theme of speakers, the in
spiration of jKts, the argument against
all who held to the Chicago declaration
that the war was a failure. Sherman
had not yet fastened tbe gaze of tbe
nation by his grander operations; Grant
had still to gain Richmond as proof of
his title to the power with which be
was vested ; and for the time Sheridan
was the most popular of our generals.
I the village of Waverly, N. Y.,
the other day, a stout old Kepnblican
farmer was asked by a Democratic
friend why he hadn't "gone up "Salt
River?" The reply was to th point,
thus: "It won't pay to make the voy
age; I couldn't stay long enough
would have to come right back. Be
sides, the other fellows have used up all
provisionsthey've been there so long;
and they have made tbe place so dirty
that! don't want to go.".; ,That old
farmer was a cheerful philosopher.
