"Am I going to ilieT The doctor's keen gray eyes dimmed suddenly as be looked down into the wau, girlish face, so thin and pale from the wasting dis easo that baffled his skill, at the white, nervous hands that lay crossed in her lap, then be tried to clear bis throat, but answered, huskily, "Dear child, no, we hope not. You have been very ill, and I must talk up a change with papa. Be hopeful, Eva ;" and he smiled cheerily as he turned to Mrs Onmpion while he stood buttoning bis glove Eva only lifted great, solemn even in a sad, questioning way that haunted the honest old man as he went, pertnrbedly thinking, to oboy the various 'callings of disease and distress. Once he gravely shook his head and sighed. Ho was thinking of his dear little patient, ho gentle and so fondly loved, only sixteen, yet so womanly for her years ; she had been the light of the house before she was Itriokerj by this mysterious illness, Hho was generous and impulsive to a fault, wanu-hoarted, with a pure, child ish mind that even though she ranked among the brightest students at the academy, retained the guileless sim plicity of an infant. Just before the blighting disease had fallen upou hei, new hopes and aspira tions had come. Tho eccentric bachelor uncle across the seas whoso name she bore, who hud loved her frjni her baby hood, died, willing to her his thousands, and his store of exquisite foreign treas ures, the much-prized accumulation of years. "As tho ono po.son who loved 'Uncle Jessie,' I bequeath to Eva Worden (lam pion my entire fortune and personal possessions, sure that the will prize them, tho whole to be her husband's in case of her death, otherwise to descend to the State National Hospital, in case of her decease while single." It was peculiar ; evory one admitted that ; but Uncle Jessie Worden had al ways admired tho poor, struggling, student-cousin, Douglas Halstead, who lovod Eva so dearly, nidden under tho crusty exterior there was a warm heart, and a tender littlo romanco be would have blushed to own twined about the lives of these two. Douglas Halstead, only nineteen, pale Irom lntonso application to the few books ho owned, pursued the torturing, useless, ever fleeing ambition of his life, mid cursed the grinding poverty that debarred him from tho hope of years. Uestlossly ambitious, life became a burden by reason of the never-1 atisfled longing that possessed him. "No ono hut Eva understands me," he told himself sj ho went toward her bouse that afternoon ; "she always helps me." Ho echoed the doctor's sigh ; there was an undefined fear in his heart as with his wonted freedom ho opened I lie heavy outer door, hung his hat in the hall and went in softly to the bright room where, in her cushioned chair, Eva leaned back, white as the pillow beneath her head. Hho started a little an bo-stood) by her chair mid said, softly, "How are yon to-day, Eva dear?' "I wanted to see you," she said, ex tending her cool little hand for bis warm one to clasp in greeting, and failing as she did so to answer his question. "I was thinking about you." "And I came down here to bo talked to," ho said, tenderly; "yon always help me, little cousin." His voice shook as ho said the last words ; he was thinking what a short time was left for her to help him, she looked so fragile and unearthly. "Eva," he said, despairingly, "it is the old story of ambition at war with Ml for, grinding jKivrrt v. I have In lied sit T can here ; hooka do not . row like wild Hewers would to Heaven they did I I buve tried to forget my A IWI, and resign myself to the inevitable; but oh, I want to get away from this and ii something. Tt II mo what to do, little girl," he concluded, in a softer tone, his white fuce showing tbe intensity of his fierce struggle with his dearest wish. "Talk to me if you are ableyou always calni me." "Poor boy P The tone had that little cadence of protection and pity in it com mon to living women. "It is hard, I know, Douglas," - she stopped sud denly, and then went on "I am going to say romething strange. When you came in I was thinking of you remem ber Uncle Jesse's will ?" "Yes," ho replied, wonderingly. "I want yon to have your wish to lie a scholar," she continued, gravely. "I know you will be a great ono I feel it here ;" and she laid her hand upon her heart. "I want the money that dear Uncle Jesse left me to do good. I meant to make it if I lived." 8he spoke seri ously, with only gentle affection and pure unselfishness looking from the soft eyes, with not a tremor of womanly feeling, nor a flush of self-consciousness disturbing the serene grandeur of" her act. "Douglas, look at me , her gaze infinitely sad and Bweet met his. "I am going to dio ; will yon marry mo and lake my money?" Douglas looked at her dumbfounded for a moment . As he realized her good ness, the depth and beauty of this in nocent act of childlike devotion, ho buried his face and groaned aloud. "Don't I Oh, Eva darling, I can't let yon go! I could not accept jour dear sacrifice." "I want you to have it," she pleaded ; "not because ours would be like other marriages, or that we love one another as men and women do, but only to help you when I am gone." Douglas sank on his knees reverently by her side. "Little girl," ho said tenderly, "you are an angel I I cannot take your money in that way ; it would ho a consuming lire to devour my whole future life ; the touch of it would burn me. Eva, you shall not do this. You deserve tho best gifts of earth and heaven. Yon hall not ilie, and yon shall be mine, when you cau be proud of nie." "Oh, no, no!" sho cried, shrinking timidly. "Not unless I die. 1 did not mean because you loved me." Tho tirst feeling that she had done wrong touched her pure mind. "Of course I would not marry yon in any other way. Yon will take it and use it for me V Please, Douglas, let me do some good before I dio ! I shall never enjoy it." The pleading eyes wore dim with tears, there was a faint flush in tho pal lid face. Pride melted, and Douglas Halstead said in uustcady tones, "As a sacred debt of honor I will take it. Heaven bless you ! You are my good angel. On you rests tho crown of my future success." And ho went'away thinking of her words "Of course I would not marry you in any other way," with a painod'feeling in his heart that he could not fathom. He went to college later how none could conjecture with a little mystery brooding about him, but none knew of the girl wife at home who as yet did not love him, and who would permit nothing but that he go at once. But Eva uiiuo conntably lingered was taken to I ho seashore, and across the water to sunny climes. As if by magic she was raised to better health. Always delicuto she would be, something of an invalid, but tho disease was gone ; so said the fa mous physician under whose caro sho was. Eight years bloomed and faded, and Douglas llalstead's name blazed like a star in public life. His talent amounted to genius. The newspaper world courted and him, and fortune smiled upon him. One gnu tie hand had opened the store-house, so it poured out earth's choicest benefits upon him. He had repaid Mva's little fund long since. "The greater debt," bo wrote, "1 never can repay ; I have you to thank for all I have and am. I am so glad you are well, little girl." "Littlo girl" nover "wife." He meant her to feel her exact position, sho told herself with sensitive pride, forgetting who had placed the ban of silen -o upon him. Hhe nover thought her girlish error "sin," she mercilessly callod it - without a sense of hotirt-bmk on misery. "Oh, how could I?" she would ago nizingly ask herself; and the grandeur of her offering was lost iu the intense mortification and sorrow that never loft her. Twice Douglas Halstead had sought her presence. Hhe avoided him. His earnest, manly appeal in his letters to see her had been unnoticed. To night she was alone, and sho was thinking after a remorseful fashion that sho bad not been qnite just, when, in the same quiet way that he had entered eight years before, Douglas Halstead stood by her side. "Forgive mo!" ho said, humbly. "Tin v told mo you were alone, and I must hoe you. Eva, mv only love- wife this once --though that Is forbidden me dearer with every bonr of life, gur licit d into my In art and treasured as the grandest, purn-tt memory it ever knew, don't send me from you I May I not hiqe some day to win your price less heart f For answer she only covered her face and wept pitoonsly. "Have you forgotten ?" she sobbed. "Is it because you are honorable, bo- j . r i cause you iaucy you need lie graiemit that you pain me thus?" Tain yon !" He sprang to his feet in vehement passion. "I would dio sooner than give you pain! I have for gotten everything save that I want the purest, sweetest woman in the world to come to her rightful shelter, my heart." He waited eagerly ; there was no re sponse. "Hhall I must I go hopeless?" he pleaded at last. "No if " tho words were very faint ami low "if oh, Douglas!" The voice died in a broken littlo sob. "My proud darling, my wife!" He had her in his arms now ; tho great deeps were broken up. He kissed passionately the pallid face, and held the trembling hands. "What have you thought?" she asked, timidly, at last. "That you were too cruel to bo tho dear littlo girl who honored me, as never man was honored before, years since." His voice was low and reverent. "Oh, I did not mean to be," sho cried, in tender remorse. "Forgivo mo, won't you ?" "The clear eyes met his ; be bent low. "If you will tell mo you love mo." As she said the words shyly he held her close, saying, "Thank you, dear love! Oh, may heavon reward you and bless you even as I am blest ! You have been lirst in my heart ever siuee I cau remember, iind now at last you are all my own." The pride in her face made him smile fondly, and Eva, wou at last, was silent from purest joy. The world calls Mrs. Halstead an in valid, so delicate she is, so fragile, and it wonders as usual if she bo not a bur den to the grand man of such superb physical and mental mould that she calls husband It does not see tho fond caro and tenderness which never fails her, nor yet does it know that its idol, its king, will carry to death, embraced iu his heart of hearts, his wife. Hill Arp's View or Life. We had a good, old-fashioned country dance last night, and don't feel any worse this morning for it. We had young people and middle aged people, and old people, and those of us who didn't trip on the light fantastic too sat iu the broad piazza and talked aud looked on and enjoyed ourselves all the same as wo used to'do when tho gush and vigor of youth were upon us. What a blessed thing it is that kind nature takes away our dosiro for frolic as we grow older, and begin to wear the sere and yellow leaf. I don't caro to danoe now that the spring in my extremities is gone and there's lead in my shoes, aud I don't lament that old age is creep ing on me, for I have many new pleas ures, aud one of theso is to lookou and see other people happy. Enjoy your day, whether it bo in youth or old ago ; enjoy every day, make most of it ; get all out of life yon can. It won't pay to always bo hankering after something or grieving over troubles that haven't come, and may nover come. I know peoplo who let tho dark side of life cheat 'em out of every day's happiness, who ponder and fret over little troubles until they swell up liko dried apples and get to bo big ones, and they can't eat or sleep in any peace. Life to them is a grindstono, and the grit of it is always cutting away little by littlo until there's nothing left. En joy the day ; got soino good out of it oven if it's nothing but contentment for good health and being out of jail. An old gentleman of throo score years and ten was here last night camo live miles just to seo the yonug peoplo happy and he was bl ight us the full moon, and it was a pleasure to seo him and listen to him discourse upon life and how to live and how to farm, and so on. He's seen trouble enough, goodness known, but he never took it to heart or surren dered his manhood. -Hilt Arp, in Ailnnln 'omlilulitm. A Toad Fight. I always keep a number of toads in my orchid houses for the purpose of destroying vermin. The other morning, while watching two males, I was highly amused at seeing them have a regular set-to fight. They went at each other in a regular scientific manner, sparring and boxing with their fore paws and but ting with their heads. After a while they seemed to get tired, coolly sat down and viewed each other with great complacency. From my earliest days I havo been iu the habit of watching the ways of toads, and never saw them fight before BEAUT1 MWths. 1'ioiiirnriltr Tare Jlerfc I1 .chimin li Anlll. oil lllniple. nrnr.

It lias been done before, and I am adverse to newspaper notoriety," savagely retorted a physician a a New York Arr re porter introduced himsef and tbe object of his mission. "Hut," outbroke tho surgeon, as he '4st a smile of confidence toward tbe invader, and a larger smile, without dimples, spread over the reiwrtnr's countenance, 'Twill give you all the facts if you agree to not mention my name. I do not wish to make a spe cialty of dimples ; and if it becomes publicaly identified with my name through the press, I might bikmI my best surgical and medical practice." Agreeing to his demands, the physi cian then told all in relation to tho manufacture of dimples. "You see," be commenced, after throwing himself comfortably hack in an easy arm-chair, "Mrs. D. about two weeks after her engagement to her present husband, became tbe victim of a small abcess on the very middle of her right cheek. It looked remarkably repulsive, and to some might create tbe impression that it would end in disfig tiring her pretty face for life. Hhe came to me to havo it removed. I began the operation and soon had it completed, but att his time one great obstacle presented itself, to the youug lady's great sorrow. Hhe would have a small scar on her chek, which would always appear like a pisthl-shot w ound. Hhe told me her intended had not seen her since she had the abcess, and as ho was not to come back until a few duys be fore their wedding, if he beheld this scar it might hurt his feelings very much. I fold her nothing could be done, but a few minutes after she smiled alvout some remark I made, and then I noticed tho scar in her cheek sunk in tho folds of the skin, and with tho exception of a little puckering, ap peared exactly like a dimple, and, in deed, added to make her face tho more agreeable. "I then concluded if the slight rough flesh could bo removed around the scar by a simple operation, so as to cause it to disappear fiom view and sink into the folds of the skin and luce more properly, it would then he turned into a real artificial dimple, ,is good and per fect in every respect as one naturally sot there. Of course the operation was performed on both cheeks, the lady being under the influence of an ames thctic. I carefully watchod develop ments aud had the young lady call with her mother to see me regularly, aud in a short time I fouud tho dimples were ai emphatic success. "How is the operation done?" iutor jHised the writer. "A slip of muscular tissue is removed from the main muscle of the cheek be tween the masseterand tho zygomatic major muscles. After administering the amcsthetie, a keen-edged littlo in strument is brought into requisition, and with this the delicate hut deep in cision is made which iiuishos the ope ration. "After this young lady got her dim ple. I almost immediately had like calls from several ladies who had molo marks, burns, and other scars on their faces, which they desired to havo re moved and replaced with dimples. Homo of them I refused to operate upon. They nearly all dosirod to have the dimples to make them better looking. I told them they could never havo their faces changed after having diniplcs put in, and that they would stay in forever, but theso warnings only mado them more anxious. When I first commenced work on the dimples I expectod to hear no more about it after Mrs, D.'s case, but she has told mo since that every ono who knew sho never had thorn before annoyod her almost to death to find out how sho got them. "Then I had a call for a very beau tiful woman on Madison avenue, whose features were as perfout as an ideal statue. I begged of hor not to havo tho operation performed, as already her face was beautiful without additions. Hhe said her face was growing too full, and unless she had dimples in her cheeks sho would havo a face looking bloated. Hor point was well taken, and it was docidedly true, her face was getting too round to retain its charms to full beauty, and more so when she smiled or laughod. I mado tho dimples, and when the lady now laughs, hor beaming hazel eyes, month of lino teeth and pretty dimples give her a look that at onco facinatos and croatos intenso admi ration. Hho must have long studied her need of dimples, for they make a vast advantage in her appearance "How much does it cost for a pair of dimples ?" "Well, it's according to tho trouble for some it might bo done for twenty flvo dollars, and others may he fifty or ono hundred;" "Is there any chance of dangerous trouble to some of tho muscles of the face that might result in perma nently disfiguring a jverson for life ?"' "Well, I cannot say there is ; if there was, a physician would be taking desperate chances in his business, and, iu fact, that is ono of tbe reasons why I myself do not wish to strongly advocate tho dimple operation, and do n ot in tend to allow it to become a specialty with me." The rejor!cr left the physician, promising if ever ho was sbofr through both checks by a cannon ball to call back and undergo the operation at half price. POPULAR SCI FACE. It is expected that Germany will soon (if sho has not already done so) seek the co-operation of other powers in es tablishing an exploration of the I'olar regions in the interests of meteorology, geology, and other sciences, as was pro posed by tho late Kaii WeyprachU It is claimed by Professor Rural Pic tot, of Geneva, that a discovery of his applied to the construction of lake, river, or ocean going vessels is likely to cause a revolution in naval architecture. Tho details are given only iu the most general terns. A model embodying the now principles is in course of con struction at Geneva, and when it is tried on the lake it will be seen whether the professor has not been too sanguine. He expects that it will attain a high rate of speed and glide over the water without cutting it, and so diminishing resistance. Major Lauer, of the Austrian engi neers, has made some experiments at Krem, on the Danube, on blasting rocks under water, which have attracted con siderable attention. In a cylinder he puts a quantity of dynamitto, which is connected with an electrical apparatus, The cylinder is placed on the surface i f the rock only, and fixed in that position. No matter how deep the water may be over the rock, it is shattered when the dynnmito explodes, into fragments so small that they are washed away by the stream. This process is said to save forty per cent, on the cost of removing absterged rocks. Many, if not mo t, peoplo have sup posed, or, rather, believed, that the' method of teaching deaf-mutes to sjK'ak had been quite a modern invention ; but every one is not of that opinion. A congress on the education of the deaf and dumb was lately opened at llor deanx, and during the sittings M. OUv eau published a series of articles in which he endeavored to prove that the art of teaching the dumb to speak is as old as the latter part of tho ninth cen tury ; that it was invented and practiced by Ht. John, of Beverley, Archbishop of York, England, aud that it was ex plained iu the writings of the Venerable Bede. The Anthropological Society of Franco had recntly under discussion the ques tion whether tho dog descends from the wolf. M. Habourdin said that ho had brought up a wolf that wns six years old and as gentle as a lamb. It was, bo sides, remarkably intelligent, and could open the doors by turning tho handles. When it heard a clock strike it would stand on its hind legs U look behind, and would move the hands around with its paws. It is fond of perfumes, and lives on good terms with poultry and other animals, but has a great aversion for cats. Its bark resembles that of a dog. M. do Mortillet, on the other had, said that ho had been endoavoring in vain to tame wolves. They were gen tle enough so long as they were young, but became savage at the adult age. M. Iloman, a French engineer, states that the cultivation of tho interesting plant, the 8oja or Soya, has been largoly developed in Hungary and in various parts of France. Ho thinks that it may in tho future become as important an article of food as tbe potato, It grows in any soil, even tho dryest, aud the plant is an excellent fodder for cattle. The seeds are very nutritious, and have the form of small kidney beans. An agreeablo soup may be made of them. Tho Chinese use thom for various kinds of cheese, to make a condiment with oil, etc. In Franco, tho soeds havo been roasted liko coffee, and M. Homan says tho doeontion of tho Soja bean is very similar to that of average coffee. The Considerate If Ait, Uncle Nacn owns several shantios on Austin Avenue, that are rented out, to olored tenants, among them Ham John sing. Night before last Ham knocked at Uncle Nsee's door, and wokohim out of n sound sloep. "What's de matter ?" said the old man sticking his head out of the window.

The TwafHrif irfcf Killed their Father llorrilile Slor. The two Williams girls who killed their father near Whitnell, Pittsylvania county, Virginia, recently aro in ens tody. They are very ignorant, and tho youngest is half idiotic. It seems they picked up o living by gathering berries and chestnuts, which their father coni jielled them to exchange for whiskey for his own use. The oldest daughter says that on the evening preceding the murder her father sent her to Whitnell to purchase whiskey with money she had earned with her own hands by drying fruit, and that sho procured tho quan tity of whiskey desired and invested the remainder of the money in a few yards of calico. Wbon she returned home her father become enraged about the purchase of the calico, and having tied her to a tree, beat her nearly to death ; that he then choked her mother until she was black in the face ; that her mother as soon as sho was released, went for tho warrant, and that she and hor sister, fearing for their lives, took both of the axes and bid them ; but their father demanded them, saying that he intended to kill his entire family and burn them up afterwards. She denied emphatically all knowledge of the murder, but this part of her story is not credited. At the time of tho discovery of Williams' body tho calico referred to by tho girl was fouud by his side, and it is believed that he took it away from tho girls, and that they waited until ho was asleep and killed him as already reported, There were two aos used instead of one, aud so deeply were they imbedded, that in drawing them out the head and shoul ders were lifted from the ground. One of the girls, who appears half idiotic, would make no statement, but indorsed that of her sister. A horrible story is circulated in tho neighborhood that Williams a few days before the murder, had instructed two of his daughters to earn money by leading vicious lives, and said that after killing his wifo he would take tho third daughter in her stead ; aud there is a surmise that the murder originated in an attempt on his part to carry out this purpose. Short Words, We must not only thiuk in words, but we must also try to use tho best words, and those which iu speech will put what is in our minds into the minds of oth ers. This is the great art which those must gain who wish to teach in the school, tho church, at tho bar, or through the press. To do this in the right way they should uso tho short words which we learn in early life, and which have the same sonso to all classes of men. The English of our Biblo is good. Now and then some long words aro found, and they always hurt the verses in which you find them. Take that which says : "Oyo generation of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come ? " There is one long word which ought not to be in it namely, " generation." In the old version tho old word " brood " is used. Bead tho verso again with this term, and you will feel its full forco : " 0 ye viper's brood, who hath warned you to floo from tho wrath to come?" Crime sometimes does not look liko crime when it is set bofore us in the many folds of a long word. When a man steals, and we call it a " defalcation," wo are at a loss to know if it is a blun der or a crime. If ho docs not toll tho truth, and we aro told that it is a case of "prevarication," it takes us some timo to know just what wo should think of it. No man will ever choat himsolf ink) wrsng-rroing, nor wilf ho be at a loss to jndgo of othors, if he thinks and speaks of acts in clear, crisp terms. It is a good rule, if ono is at a loss to know if an act is right or wrong to write it down in a short, straight-out Eng lish. Hariitit) Smimoiw. WORM of wisnuin.
