he walked out of the parlor without a
:--nce at him. He gazed after her with
-tying love in his haLdsome eyes,
"r'ooiish child."
Then he went away, and she watched
h'.m from a window up stair, a defiant feel-i-g
iu htr heart.
"I work for my living 1"
And the sweet lips quivered as the pale
uttered these words.
"My child, I would give my life to save
7 "i this blow ; but Low can we avoid it?
Uu. to think that we should have come to
fJjh a strait!"
jeat!e Mis Lindsey stroked the soft gol
den hair that was clinging to Violet's neck.
If you can but make up your mind to
coiici'.c matters between you and Mr. Wil
'ai't, jun think, Violet, what a home we'd
tolh hare."
As it I'd accept him now, when we are
t poverty's door, after refusing him in our
tetter days."
And Violet's eyes danced with pride.
'"And it has been foolish pique all along,
child, that has separated you you' knoW
you love him this blessed minute."
A flush passed over her face, then left her
pale as before.
"No, I don't I see that nothing bot
honor leads him to offer me his hand. He's
in love with that Livia Armour, you see it
as well as I do. But let us not discuss liiis.
What must I do, where must I go?"
It was a twelve month after that before
that question was answered, and then Violet
Lindsey, in her black calico dress, standing
beide her mother's grave.
"To New York, where I can surely find
something to do."
Then she walked out cf the graveyard,
and down past the house where the Wil
mots used to live before their sudden remo
val from the village. Violet had never
learned where they had gone, and she was
too proud to ask. All she had heard was
one day when she was sitting beside her
mother's bed. that the Wiimots were going
to move, and it was rumcred a wedding was
on the tapis a wedding between Gus and
Miss Armour.
She had felt a dull pain at her heart,
then a sharper throb of agony as she met
her mother's pitying eyes. After that she
tried to gt accustomed to it ; but that chil
ly, cloudy day in early spring, as she passed
the old homestead that had gone to other
hands, a fierce, surging home-sickness rush
ed ever her ; ?he remembered how she had
loved in the dear old home, and of the jewel
she had cast from her.
Then she dashed away the tear and went
determinedly on to the little depot, where
she took the next train for New -York.
"And what can you do? You don't seem
very strong. 'Tend a baby, or do stairs
work, maybe ?"'
Violet Lindiey stood at the desk of the
intelligence office; a flush of mortification
on her cheeks.
"Yes sir."
It was the only answer she made, and the
clerk tapped the desk impatiently.
"Come, what do you want? I can't wait
all day. Here's a couple of cards. One
wants a child nurse ; bahy. six weeks old;
No. 999 Lexington avenue. T'other for
cashier in a wholesale dry goods establish
ment. Take 'em and try."
"I'll do so, thank you."
And thankful to escape from the office
thronged with buxom Irish girls, and red
faced Germans, Violet took the cards, and
hailed a stage for up town.
No. (.i'J0 Lexington avenue was a palatial
residence, a hu;e brown stone front, with
plate glass windows, and sweeping lace cur
tains. Violet felt a little afraid to ring the
bell or step into the little elegant marble
floored vestibule, so she descended the iron
steps, to the baseaient ; where everything
was more elegant than the parlor in the
dear old home.
"The mioses was in, shure and wud she
plise walk oop and spake wid hrr."
The good natured Irishwoman took her
through gorgeous halls, and up velvet car
pet stairs to a front apartment; and then
after tapping at the door, uodded kindly,
and returned. .
"Come in," said a low sweet voice.
Violet timidly entered, and then a torrent
of hot blood surged to her cheeks.
"Miss Armour I didn't know." Then
the angry tear rushed to her eyes.
"Not Miss Armour, Miss Lindsey, Mrs.
Her voice did not seem as haughty as of
old ; certainly her face, with its dainty cap,
was less proud than of yore.
"Mrs. Wilmot?"
She repeated the name with a sort of ter
ror; the lady did not seem to notice it.
"Certainly ; might it not be, think you?
See this."
She threw aside a lace curtain and dis
closed a sleeping babe.
This is Master Gussie, for whom I wan
ted a nurse. I little dreamed you would
apply. Sit down do. Miss Lindsey."
"No, I must go and seek nnother place.
I am poor and must earn my living."
She wept bitterly.
"I am sorry, very 6orry, Violet. Can I
not assist you ? Let me, please, for the
sake of old times, the dear old days of Or
ange vale."
How her words stabbed the suffering
"You never liked me then, Violet You
thought, because I was more unreserved
than yourself, that I was friendly. You
were wrong, my child. I loved you always;
I would have shown you that I did, only
that you would never let me.
Violet's tears were ready to fall ; the kind
words were refreshing after her lonesome
ness in the great world of New York.
"Stay to lnnch, Violet, and see my hus
band. Ho will help you to a situation. He
said to-day there was a vacancy in one of
their atores."
"Indeed, I cannot I must go."
"Promise to come again, my dear Vio
let." She nodded an affirmative, and then hur
ried blindly down stairs.
The front door opened and a gentleman
met her, face to fi.ee.
"Why, Violet Lindsey."
She uttered a little cry of dismay and
"Gus Mr. Wilmot, let me pass.
She sprang away, her heart beating al
most to suffocation, her head whirling diz
zily, her cheeks palid as death. A parsing
car at the corner took her to her lodgings,
and in the dreary loneliness she wept and
. Poor girl 1 would her one hasty act of raab.
jealousy follow her even to the end ?
It was late in . the afternoon when she
started to seek the address on the remaining
card ; and when' she reached the elegant
emporium, sue found few customers and
few clerks.
A pleasant voiced caih-boy glanced at the
card and escorted her to the walnut door of
the private office.
"You'll fiud him inside. He'll be going
soon though."
She opened the door and entered. The
gentleman stood before an open sample
book, but he turned as she advanced. A
smile broke over his handsome face.
"My own little darling, I've found yon" at
last 1 Oh, my Violet, why do you despise
me so?"
She felt herself growing faint as Gus Wil
mot wound his arm around her.
"You must not speak. Let trie explain.
I would have done so to-day when I met
you at my brother's house."
A cry of agonized joy burst from her.
"Then she's not your wife?"
His merry laugh sent a thrill of old-time
joy through her.
"Jealous still, my poor hunted bird? No
End even in those other days Livia was be
trothed to Howard, ray oldest brother, who

"And you never told me?"
"Would you have believed it when you
would not believe when I declared I cared
nothing for her?"
He kissed her as he spke
"Now, Violet, my darling, we must riev
er part again. Come, I am going to take
you to our pastor's residence and make you
my wife."
He was looking down in her tearful eyes.
"You are too forgiving, Gus. I dou't
deserve it."
An hour later they drove up to 999 Mr.
Wilmot and wife.
Her jealousy had almost wrecked her.
Joined hand in hand with pride she had
reaped in a plentiful harvest of the evil she
had sown.
Bui 'joy eomcth in the morning, to those
who have crept in the dark night time,' and
like Violet's, the enjoyment is the greater
for the trials endured.
Behind Time. Aa Mr. Hardiffwas go
ing through the AthentKum, during some
exhibition, he was attracted by a beautiful
picture of the Crucifixion, and was much
struck by it, inquiriug of his companion the
story of it, about which ha had never heard.
He was much incensed thereat, and treasu
red it in his mind.
Going through North street, next day,
where the twelve tribes do congregate, he
was button holed and held by a member of
them, who importuned him to "come and
buy something."
"What are you ?" said nardriff ; "are
you a Jew?''
"I am an Ishraelite." was the reply.
"Then take that," giving him at the same
time a rap on the nose.
"Vot yoa do that for?" aaid Moses, rub
bing his proboscis, "I never sold you no
"No, but you were one of them that
nailed that man to the cro.ss, confound you."
"Me! I no do him ; da t was done two
thousand years ago."
"Well, I don't care anything about
that," said Hardriff ; "I never heard of it
till yesterday."
No blister draws sharper than interest
doe. Of all industries, none is comparable
to that of interest. It works all day and
night, in fair weather or fouL It has no
sound in its footstep, but it travels fast. It
gnaws at a man's substance with invisible
teeth. It binds industry with its film, as a
fly is bound in a spider's web. Debts roll a
man over and over binding him hand and
foot, and letting him hang upon the fatal
uieth until the long legged interest devours
him. There is but one thing on the farm
like it and that b the Canada thistle,
which swarms new plants every time you
break its roots, whose blossoms are prolific
and every flower the father of a million
seeds. Every leaf is an awl, every branch
a spear, and every plant like a platoon of
bayonets, and a field of them like an armed
host The whole planes is a torment and a
vegetable curse. And yet a farmer had
better make hit bed of .Canada thistles
than attempt to be at ease upon interest

A Boston gentleman who could not waltc,
offered a young lady $100 if she would let
him hug her a much as the man did who

Prussia's Contribution to America in 1777.
While the name of Lafayette, the gallant
Frenchman whose services in our war for in
dependence will ever be remembered by the
American people, U upon a thousand
tongues since the opening of the present war
in Europe, that of Steuben, Prssia's contri
bution to America in 1777, has almost faded
from recollection. Baron Frederic William
Augustus Steuden, to whose skill in the
manipulation of troops and the organization
of armies much of the success of our struggle
with the mother country is owing, deserves
an equal place in the affections of the Ameri
can people with Lafayette.
A native of Magdeburg, Prussia, he served
in 1747 as a volunteer under his father in
the array of Frederick the Great, at the early
age of fourteen. He participated in many
of the battles of the Seveo Years War dis
tinguishing himself by his admirable cool
ness in action and great bravery. Gradually
rising from the ranks, he was in 1764 made
a Grand Marshal.
In 1777, while on a visit to Franca, he was
solicited by a number of our friends there,
with whom he held intimate relations, to
come to America. After, numerous inter
views with our commissioners at the Court
of France, he finally decided to come, and
on December 1, 1777, landed at Portsmouth,
N. II. He immediately tendered his services
to Congress and General Washington in a
letter which breathed the strongest sympa
thy with and devotion to our cause. He
shortly after entered the army, then encamp
ed in its miserable quarters at Valley Forge,
near Philadelphia.
The spring of 1773 found the people dis
heartened, the public finances in a deplora
ble state; the soldiors half fed and clothed
aiid without organization or discipline.
The news of the treaty concluded with
France reinspired the people with confidence,
but cduld not reorganize Bur army. It was
at this time, May 5th. 1778, that Baron
Studen was appointed inspector general,
with the rank of major general. Through
great efforts the Continental army, which
had been somewhat reioforced, waa trained
and discipined, and its condition greatly
improved. He participated in the battle of
Monmouth, on June 23, 1773, adding new
laurels to his,already brilliant reputatidd.
The greatest of his labors, and the one
which was of most serviae to the struggling
patriots, was the preparation of a manual
for the army. In this work,- which was ap
proved by Congress in 1779, he gave evi
dence of great military ability and fitness
for command. It made out of the Conti
nentals an army, and by its sagacious and
rigid rules prepared them for victory. In
1780 Baron Studen commanded the Colonial
troops in Virginia, where he was active in
harrassing the British under Benedict Ar
nold. He was afterwards attached toLafay
yette's division, and played an important
part in the seige of Yorktown.
' Baron Studen was d'sttngiiished for his
generosity and kindness of heart He cloth
ed his soldiers at his own expense, and la
bored incessantly to relieve their privations
and to promote their comfort and welfare.
The close of the war found the country suf
fering from the long stagnation of trade and
agriculture, and the treasury exhausted.
He consequently experienced much annoy
ance and vexations delay in securing an ap
propriation for bis pay and to reimburse
him for his expenditures for clothing and
arms for his soldiers. Congress finally, in
1790, conferred upon him a life annuity of
$2,500. The State of New York presented
him with 1 5,000 acres of land near Utica,
where he settled and passed the remainder
of his days. Other States followed with
resolutions acknowledging his eminent servi
ces and donating him tracts of land. The
brave old campaigner, who had fought on
two continents with equal renown, died at
his settlement near Utica, on the 28th of
November, 1794, aged 64 years, leaving be
hind him naught but a name which belongs
to history.

The Kidneys nia iwoin number, situated at the'
opper part ot tbe loin, surrounded by fat. and
eontsting of three parts, vis: the Anterior, the
Interior, and the Exterior.
The anterior absorbs Interior consists of tis
sues or vetos, which serve as a deposit for tha
urine and convey ft to the exterior. The exte
rior is a conductor arso, terminating in a single
tube, and called the Ureter. Tbe ureters are eon-'
neeted with the bladder.
The bladder is composed of various eoverioge
r tissues, divided into parts, vis : tbe Upper, Ike
Lower, the Nervous, and the Mucous. The opfsr
expels, the lower retains. Many hate a desire t
urinate without tbe ability, others urinate with
out toe ability to retain. This frequently occur
in children.
To cure these affections, we must bring into ac
tion the macles, which are engaged in their va
rious functions. If they ere neglected. Grsrel or
Dropsy may ensue.
Tbe reader must also be made aware, that how
ever slight may be tbe attack, it is sure to affect
the bodily health and mental powers, as our flesti
and blood are supported from these sources.

Tn Geatel. Tbe gravel ensue from neglect
or improper treatment of tbe kidney These or
gans being weak, the water is not expelled from
the bladder, but allowed to remain; it become
feverish, and sediment forms. It is from this de
posit thst the stone is formed, and gravel ensues.
Dbopst is a collection of water in some part cf
the body, and bear different names, according to
to parts affected, rit : when generally diffused
over the body, it is called Anasarca ; when of the
Abdomen, Ascites; when of the chest, Uydrotho
rax. Tbeatwest. Belmbold's highly concentrated
compound Extract Buchu is decidedly one of the
best remedies for diseases of tbe bladder, kidneys,
gravel, dropsical Swellings, rheumatiu,and gouty
affections. Under this head we hsve arranged
Dysurie, or difficulty and pain in passing water,
Scanty Secrstion, or small and frequent dischar
ges of water; Strangury, or stopping of water
Hematuria, or bloody urine ; Oout and Rheuma
tism of the kidneys, without any change in quan
tity, but increase in color, or dark water. It waa
always highly recommended by the late Dr.
Physics, iu these affections.
Thil medicine increase the power of digestion
and excites the absorbents into healthy exercise
by which the watery or calcareous depositions
and all unnatural enlargements, as well as pain
and inflammation are reduced, and it is taken by
men, women and children. Direetion for use and
diet accompany.

H. T, Helm sold. Druggist:
Dbae Sir: t hsve been a snfferer, far upward
of twenty years, with gravel, bladder and kidney
affections, during which time I have used various
medicinal preparation, and been under the treat
ment of the most eminent Physicisas, experiea'
cing but little relief
Having seen your preparation extensively ad
vertised, I consulted with my family physician is
regard to nsing yeur Extract Buchu.
I did this because I had used all kinds ef ad
vertised remedies, and had found I hem werthless,
and aome quite injurious; in fact, I despaired ef
ever getting well, and determined te use no rem
edies hereafter unless I knew of the ingredients.
Itwas this that prompted me to use your remedy.
A yoa advertized that it was composed of buchu
cubeb and juniper berries, it occurred to meand
my physician a an excellent combination, and,
with his advice, after an examination of the arti
cle, and consulting again with the druggist, I
eoneluded to try it. I commenced its u?e about
eight month ago, at which time I Was confined
to my room From tbe Erst bottle I was astonish
ed and gratified at tbe beneficial effect, and aftef
using it three weeks was able to walk oat, I felt
much like writing you a full statement of my case
at that time, but thought my improvement might
only be temporary, and therefore concluded to
defer and soe if it weuld effect a perfect cure,
knowing then ic would be of greater value to yon
and mote satisfactory to ma.
I am now able to report that a cure is effected
after usitg the remedy for five mouths.
I have cot used any now for three months, aad
feel as well in all respects as I ever did.
Tonr Buchu being devoid of any vnpleasant
taste and odor, a nice toni.i and invigoratorof the
system, I do not mean to be without it whenever
occasion may require its use in such affections.
