E. A. Smuller, in St. A'uluflneor May. THE OLD SQUIRE'S MISTAKE. True hearts are more than coronets. Anil simple faith than Norman blood. Squire Atherton owned a fine place, and had a plethoric rent roll, so that money need not have been an object in the selection of a wife for his only son, Cyril. Not being of a romantic tem perament, he had given but little thought to the matter, merely looking upon it as essential, that at some distant time Cyril should form some suitable alliance, so that the name need not die out; but there need be no haste, and a fortune must be among the lady's ad vantages. What, then, was his sur prise and dismay, w hen Cyril came to him one morning and asked his consent to a marriage with a poor young girl, the orphan niece of a small farmer, who lived seme three miles from Atherton manor. A stormy scene ensued. They parted in anger. Cyril mounted his favorite " Madcap" and rode at once to eepdale farm. Hilda satv Jinn coming and met him at the door. The rash young lover had not waited for his father's consent to. woo her, and they had been betrothed for several weeks. He had led Hilda to believe that she would be welcomed to his homo, and given a daughter's portion of love. It was hard to tell her the bitter truth, and in his anger and disappointment he did not soften one harsh word his father had said, even to calling Hilda a milk-faced doll, whose pearly teeth arid bright eyes had captivated him in spite of his better judgment. - - 'Hut we'll be married in spite of him, won't we, darling? He'll come to his senses then, I'll warrant. He'll think it all right when he can't help himself." Hilda's roses paled as she listened to the eager boy, and the happy light which had made her dark eyes so bril liant, had died away in somlssr shadows, but she answered with gentle resolution : "No, Cyril, two wrongs never made a right. It doesn't sound like you to say such a thing. We are young and we can wait untu your father changes his mind." That's what he'll never do," said Cyril, gloomily. " If he takes a notion, an earthquake wouldn't move him. It we wait for such a thing, we'll wait for ever." - " Then it will be with a clear con science. Your father is an old man, and it might shorten his life, if you, his only son, should prove disobedient and un grateful. I can not come between you and yonr father." -' . . . . . Cyril listened to her with flashing eyes. "Then you will throw me over? I who worship the very ground your feet have touched. Oh, 'Hilda, I did not think it of you. My father was right," he continued, gloomily. " He said all women are alike selfish and merce nary." "Don't Cyril; I know you can rot be lieve it of me! Hear me! - If you were to be crippled in mind and body, and miserably poor, and no one else had a prior claim to you, I would work myself to a shadow for you, and consider my self happy in doing so. . It is because I love you better than myself that I will not let you do wrong. But I will prom ise to go solitary and alone, so far as human love is poncejned, to mygrave, if so be that we can not marry." Dear, dearest Cyril, go home to. your father and do as he wishes, fully and entirely. God's blessing will surely test npon the datiful eon."' Her voice broke. With a wild Im pulse she threw her arms around his neck and kissed him again and again, between her sobv It -was her fare wall. The next moment Cyril nva3etandiag alone in the porch, and the heavy door was shut and bolted between them. After a few moments of bewildering hesitation he mounted and rode away. He could not but think forgivingly of Hilda, as he recalled her anguished softs and felt her kisses burning upon his forehead she' who ha-CYer been so chary of her caresses. Strive as he might, he did not Again see Hilda. It seemed as "though some unseen messenger was ever on the alert to warn her of his approach. At last he grew desperate, and determined to leave home. His father procured, him a commission in Hie army. "He wished for active service, and, as it was the time of the Crimean war, he had no difficult"" in carrying out his purpose o-1 regiment "waa one out. ..the first Hilda heard of his departure with tear ful eyes. Still she did not regret the course she had taken. Following the noble example of Florence Nightingale, she went to one of the hospital training schools to fit herself to follow her sol dier, if necessary, and nurse some poor victim of the war back to life, or to soothe Lis dying moments if he was beyond help. But other work was in store for her. A letter from home brought news of an epidemic of the most fatal type of ty phoid fever in her own village. The inhabitants were so alarmed. that they were leavinz the place, and nurses could not be obtained, so great was the fear of the contagion. 1 he conciuaing item was this: "" " Squire Atherton is down with it, and of all the indoor servants at the manor, old Hannah, who took care of the mistress in her last sickness, is the only one left. She declares if she leaves the master in his sore need, it'll only be feet first.' " Without a moment's hesitation, Hil da went to the matron, telling her she was needed at home, and procured her discharge. Then, laden with her pre cious, newlv framed knowledge, she took the first homeward-bound train. Old Hannah was seated, at the mas ter's beside, looking worn and weary, As Hilda came softlv in, dressed in her clinging gray flannel dress, with her irlossv hair hidden by a close-fitting muslin can. she looted to me surprised old woman like an apparition. Hilda smiled and held out her hand as she whispered: " Don't you know me linaa, ol Deepdale farm? I am here to help you. I know what to do, so don't be afraid to trust me. I'll watch the master laith- fully if you'll go and take a rest." Somethinir in the eiri's quiet, resolute manner impressed the faithful old serv ant that she was making no idle boast, or she would not have yielded up her post. As it was, weary human nature asserted its claims, and she went gladly. She soon came back with a bowl of warm soup. It tasted gratefully to the young nurse, as she had not oroken ner fast since the reception of the letter. After this, Hilda was Jelt alone, with the sick man. The night wore wearily awav, the silence only broke by the restless moans of the sufferer, when Hilda would straighten his pillow, and pass her cool hand with a magnetic touch over his forehead, thus giving him a momentary relief. After old Hannah was thoroughly rested, she and Hilda divided the time in the sick room, and uy mat means kept their strength from giving out. It was a weary ught witn ueatn, dui a strong constitution, aided by careful nursing, carried the Squire through. The delirium passed away, and a deep sleep came upon him. It was the crisis. " It he awakens rational and comiort- able, he is saved," said the doctor. "If, on the contrary, he falls into a state of coma, nothing can help him." Hours passed on. Every tick ol the ver-tongued repeater on the mantle seemed to find an echo in the hearts of the anxious watchers. At last the crit ical moment came. The Squire awoke free from fever, though weak as a child. He was saved. At first Hilda kept as much as possible out of his sight, shrinking into the shadow of tho heavy damask curtains when he was awake. But he did not seem to notice her, and she gradually forjrot her caution. During his long and tedious convales cence he was often querulous and in tractable. 'I hen Hilda would take a book and read to him in her low musi cal voice, and thus soothe him to sleep. She was only waiting until her pres ence was not absolutely needed to go back to her self-imposed duty at the hospital. One morning she had been eading the 'limes, untu me squire was, as she thought, asleep. Then the paper dropped listlessly in her lap. Her thoughts, unmindful of time and space, were with him she loved so faithfully and self-sacrificingly. A trembling voice suddenly roused ner from her reverie : " Hannah tells mo you are going awav. is it necessary -' an any oiner sick person need you as much as I do?" Hilda looked at the old man in sur prise. A cadence, born of loneliness and sorrow, in his voice, touched her unspeakably; and as she recalled the hale, hearty Squire, who often rode by the farm in the plesant old days, calling out a cheerful good-morning to her uncle in his stentorian tone, tears came to her eyes to see what a wreck of his former self he had become. - - After a brief hesitation she said softly : " If you need me 1 will not go away for the present." " I do need you very much," was the reply. . ." So that matter is settled. Now, nurse, I want to ask you a ques tion. Have I ever seen you before? Somehow your face seems familiar, but I can not place it." Hilda felt the blood dying her face, even to the border of her cap. She turned away, ostensibly to adjust the folds of a curtain, in reality to avoid a Just then iiannau came in wiui me mail. Important news from the army was expected, there having been rumors of an engagement. - - - - k . i " Get the paper, nurse, and run over the war items." Hannah caught the words and passed on her way out. In her way she was as much interested as the Squire. Was it not her nursling who was far away on the battle-field striving to win his purs? Hilda took the paper and ran her eyes over the columns, une pmiui moan escaped her lips ; the neat mo ment she lay apparently nteiess on the floor. The heavy fall loosened her cap, and her hair rolled in all its rich luxu riance around her a kindly mantle that hid her deathly face from even old Han nah's pitying eyes. ; A dash of cold water soon revived her. and as soon as the fright occasion ed by her sudden illness had subsided, the Squire took the paper, and saw fac ing him in staring letters: . A BLOODT ENGAGEMENT. ' Ureat loss of officers and men Cyril Atber- . ton, of the iray$, mortaii j wounaca, whUe endeavoring to silence - - a battery. . . , . The letters swam before his eyes, ne could read no more. He rose feebly aud dragged his shaking limbs to Hil da's side. " My poor girl," he said, brokenly. But he did not finish, his sentence ; for, at the sound of his voice, Hilda opened her eyes and looked at" him, first in a dazed, bewildered way, then she put out .both hands and motioned him away. We have killed him between ns i io you hear?. You and I! Oh, my darling! my darling!". The Squire turned to Hannah : " Who is this young woman?" "Lord bless us, sir. Didn't you know it was Hilda? . Masto. Cyril's. Hilda, who has been risking her own life to save yours?" ' Hilda's voice interrupted them : The grave is the lonesome coach we have given your bonny head, and your iiUier may.think it a better one for yoa than your low-born Hilda's arm. Oh, my" owrf Cyril, could 'you but know how my heart ached when I shut the door in your face, and sent you to do your duty; but you never, never will be the wiser! You have gone forever, and thinking, too, that Hilda was cruel and heartless... Oh, cruel Hilda! and more i I iraot father!" - '- ItoA inuwr , .'.-. ltmadolhe" old man V frame like an aspen leaf to hear ,h u 4 girl. He felt himself almost a murdcr- "1" 1 er as the low plaintive tones made their JjicousaUott against him. -'- 1 Ha took per baud at last, and said ; " My poor girl, forgive me and help me to bear this bitter, bitter punish nient. From this moment, be Cyril alive or dead, I will make amends to you and him. Yoa shall be to me as much my daughter as though you were Cyril's wife. But as long as Cyril was not reported dead, there may be room lor nope, lie may come back to ns vet." . . Hilda caught eagerly at the ray of nope. " Oh, tell me truly," she said clasp ing ner nanus in ner intense eagerness, until ine nans almost cut into the ten der skin, ' "could it be possible that there was a mistake? Do they ever put tae wrong name down ?" " I have known of instances of one offici r being taken for another in the haste and confusion of a battle, and this telegram was sent while the conflict was k'iill raging." So they tried to hope even while every one else was thinking sorrowfully mat me kind, bright-laced young ma ter was lying with his face to the stars, no longer ignorant of their voiceless mysteries, in his solemn sleep. imaa remained at the manor. It was a comfort to the old man to make, as he thought, this expiation for his fault. In order that Hilda's position in his household might be fully understood, he announced her to be his son's betrothed wife, and invited Lady Hargrave, his widowed sister, to come and lend the sanction of her presence to the young girrs Fesidence in hi3 home. The next telegram brought cheering news. Cyril bad lost an arm, but was doing well, and was, as soon as he would be able to bear the journey, to be sent home, wearing on his breast a decoration earned by his own bravery. After this there was a happy house hold at Atherton Manor. Lady Hargrave was versed in all the womanly accom plishments, and she found Hilda an apt pupil. The Squire could hardly show enough fondness for the gentle girl who had been so patient and tender in care of him through his tedious illness. The sight of her pretty face bending over her embroidery, or engaged lu weaving some delicate crochet pattern, seemed to him like a tangible promise that lie was not to be left a lonely, childless old man. . ., So the days wore on until the pale young soldier came home. Then there was a quiet wedding the festivities con sequent upon the marriage of the heir of the manor being reserved until the return of the bridal pair from a length ened tour in Italy, when it was fondly hoped that Cyril would be fully restored to health and strength, so that the tenantry could be made happy by his presence. . . , Deciphering Secret Messages. It is said that Senator Sharon has made complaint that messages sent to him in cipher have been deciphered and their contents given to others specu lating in stocks, and the other Resident Director, D. O. Mills, has ordered an investigation. This deciphering of dis patches of large stock speculators is not a new business, but, on the contrary, is an old one, and one of the admitted a,-!1o f-llur otoelr " riTnlilinr Tn the days of the suit between the Totosi and Burning Moscow mines, awiegrapn operator was sent from here by some of the mining magnates to tap the wires at Sportsman Hall, a locality about twelve miles distant from Placerville. In those days, the only telegraphic communica tion with Virginia City was by this route. The operator was detected, arrested and ii n ally sent to prison lor a term ol two years. A lew years since one oi our present millionaires, who wa3 men not so rich in worldly goods, but fertile in resources, made arrangements with an operator in Virginia City to decipher the dispatches to Senator Sharon, those pecially relating to Uhouar. ine Senator then, as in the present case, was not only surprised, but indig naut that, what he considered his sole and private information was in the possession of this other stock operator long before it had reach ed him. After spending some time in trying to find the "inwardness" of this marvel, he resorted to strategy, lie in structed the Superintendent of tho Chollar to forward a cipher dispatch, as Usual, but which was understood be tween them to mean to the contrary oi what it was used for formerly. Tho re sult was the stock broker got the inform ation first, as usual .and made such a demand and purchased so largely of the stock that it was advanced many dol lars per share, and at the very highest figure was he loaded and his menus ; but, unfortunately, Sharon was too hasty and "let the cat out of the bag" the first day. Had ho but kept the strat egy secret for three days there would bo to-day one millionaire less. The op erator was detected, and when confront ed with the evidence, admitted he was the one who deciphered the dispatches of Sharon and forwarded them to the broker here. There were also well au thenticated stories afloat years ago ol how Hayward's dispatches from Crown I'oint were deciphered and several well known brokers connected with the tam pering. It 'is to be hoped the present investigation will be thorough, and check that betrayal of confidential mat ter which operators by oath bind tnem- selres to. keep secret. Alto-California. A Treasury Lady the Victim of Alcohol. One of those ingenious women whose business it is to examine mutilated and Uegible currency in the Treasury has recently-come to grief. This woman had so ably penormed mis intricate work for several years as to have be come almost indispensable not only to the Department, but scarcely less so to numerous banks in Qinerent parts otxhe country, Who but forjher patience must have lost considerable sums in- worn currency. Her skiu in restoring wnat looked like a hopeless mass was mar velous, and in consideration of her per severance in this direction, some of the banks have from time to time attested their appreciatioo? the material benefit thus derived,- by hartdsome donations of money, one or two, it w anderstood, paying her as high as $1,000 pef year. I take equal pride in the gallantry of such men and the ability of such a woman. Too often are women compelled to feel that they gain nothing by marked fideli ty. These gifts from the banks, were,' of course, in addition to the regular salary paid by the Treasury, of $1,200. For a considerable' time it was sadly noticed that this woman was manifestly falling into the insidious power of a ter rible syren. Often and agaia, it could not be denied, she was not quite herself long before the hour for the close of work. Admonitions, kind and gentle, and. warnings, oft repeated, were of no avail. She was hopelessly enthralled. At last she came to the office one morn ing already too oblivious to faithfully Eerform her usual task, and, as patienc e ad long since ceased to be a virtue, a carriage was called and she was sent, a victim of alcohol, to her home, there to find that the ominous yellow envelope containing a notice of dismissal from service had ' preceded ' 'her coming. Strange to say, her predecessor in the same position, who had starved long ai d acceptably, but for this weakness, w is discharged for the same cause'.

' The Fine Art f Eating. " j r A pretty young lady the other day treated herself in a restaurant to a lunch which for artistic simplicity can not be surpassed. Most young ladies with an inclination to lunch. would have called for an unknown quantity of meringues and baker's trash, ending with a heap ing saucer oi ice-cream. JSo , so this young lady. She had a solid, rosy, "well nourished look about her which indicat ed, a priori, that she lived on better things. Her lunch fulfilled one's ex pectation. She sat down, calmly look ed over the bill of fare from top to bot tom, and then, ignoring all creams, cus tards, meat-pies and mixed messes, qui etly oidercd brown bread and butter and young onions. She ate them in a beautiftd manner, too. It was good to notice how daintily she tackled the ten der, pale green shoot, dipped it into the tiny pyramid of salt and conveyed it to her mouth. She ate six of the tender, pale green onions, and enjoyed them. She was fond of the onions, and had none of that affected squeamishness about eating them which most young ladies display. She ate them honestly, and her way of doing it showed that she was quite accustomed to the table man ners of " good society." - The young woman with' her onions had the true idea of the fine art of eat ing. It is to have only a few dishes at a time, to have them abundant in quan tity, and of the best quality. No epicu rean would consent to have a dozen or fifteen courses at his dinner, consisting of mixed-up and shaken together mate rials from the four corners of the earth. Such a dinner is alike destructive of ap petite, digestion and all that is msthetic in the art of eating. It savors of the too muchness of gaivanized iron orna mentation in architecture. The true epicurean's dinner will always be made up of only a few dishes, but those un surpassed in material, cookery .and furnishings. Variety he has in plenty, but he obtains it by having fewer dishes at once, and so stretching ont the good things of the appetite further through time rather than, by taxing French cook-books and his own brains, to dis cover for him some new mixture. He always thus has something good, to look ahead to for the " next time, so to speak Much of the worry ,and work fashionable Americans make over their cookery might -be avoided, and much both of time 'and food material now wasted might be saved if we un derstood better the fine art of eating. It is a serious mistake for a cook to spend her time and worrying her brains pre paring half a dozen diiierent disnes, which, after all. are apt to be badly cooked, when three excellent dishes will answer better in every way. I he half dozen dishes may be snobbish, but they are not really appetizing. To broil a steak, to make a cup oi coffee, to bake a loaf of bread, white or brown, these are the three foundation pillars of all good cookery. Tho history of civilization, civilized cookery as well, passes from simplicity into lloridness, and from floridness into simplicity again, but it is the simplicity of true art. One kind of rightly cooked meat, vegetables ditto, two or three dainty little side dishes, and a pyramid of perfect, lus cious fruit no one who really knew the true art of enjoying his food would ac cept any thing more. And he would have a uitlerent round ot disnes every day for a week, because they would be so much to choose from. As was said, however, the foundation of cookery will always be beefsteak, cof fee, and bread. Our English friends make merry over our. shortcomings in the above staples. Almost no Euglish nrtvtA la oreittnn PftTitfllninff O Ti r vnf 1 r ence to Americans, that it does not have some allusion to the sole-leather beef steak of the United States. Next after the beefsteak the Englishman's notes of travel deal with our muddy, bitter cof fee, and our vile hot bread. One will be surprised when he stops to recall the hospitable mansions in which he has breakfasted at different times, to think how few of the housekeepers . broiled their steak instead of frying it, steeped the coffee instead of boiling it, and had wholesome, home-made bread. Those benevolent ladies who are forming them sives into associations" to kindly help and guide friendless and untrained young women, would corner an untold beneht on humanity u they would, teach, first themselves, and then the untrained young women, now to cook oeeisteak and make cotlee and bread as it should be done. ' ' No matter now deliciously cooked one's food may be, though, there may be surroundings which take away his appetite. If he raise his eyes in a pub lic dining-room and behold a countless host of his fellow-men eating with their knives, plunging those dangerous im plements well down ' their throats at every mouthful; if tbey itcurled up like uie letter wun ineir eiuwws proppeu upon the table; if they "schlurf their soup and coffee like a quadruped; if thev talk so loud that he knows every bottle of ale and vanilla custard that are or dered in a circuit of 10 feet about him, the epicurean will hardly care much for his dinner. Refined and dainty table manners are an indispensable element of the fine art of eating eating being an operation which is not superlatively pretty to look at at its best. Cincinna ti Commercial . Female Places for Hiding Money. Mrs. Hansen put $50 in the oven of her stove one night, to keep it safe. Next morning ' after breakfast the national debt had been diminished exactly that much. A student of the curious would find it interesting to note tue places in which women hide their money .v One excellent and frugal 'dame used to luck' her savings away un der the corner of the carpet. The tiny roll of greenbacks grei. fatter and fat ter in the course of a year or two, when, the day after it counted $250, the house, took fare, burnt to the "ground, and again the nationsltlebt was diminished by a little roll of a-woman's pin money. There was that other careful lady, too, who used sometfrnesj to hide her dia mond rings between two teacups in the kitchen cupboard, sometimes behind a certain brick iaithe cellar, and again under the lining of an old hat. She had divers other places of safety for her jewels also, the only trouble being that she had so many fciding-places she occa sionally forgot where she had last put her precious things, and .about every three months wbuld-iancy. she had been robbed, and the house would be turned inside out; and all therein made uncom fortable until the missing sums would be found carefully tucked, awav in the folds of the bottom 'towel the pile in ine leit-nand corner of the lower draw- . er In the clothes-press at the east end of the dining-room.

A most worthy lady died not long since at her home, not a thousand miles from Cincinnati, and after her death the family found a large sum of money hidden away in an an cient band-box full of old hats and bon nets. It was her savings for several years, and nobody knew she had it until after she was dead. Whenever a woman dies who, like John Gilpin's wife, " had a frugal mind," her anxious and affec tionate heirs will do wisely to look for her savings in all places in which money would not likely be hidden. Cincinnati Commercial. A Young Girl's Folly. A romance in real life, with an end ing sadly different from that which the books give, has just transpired in a small village not many miles from Cleveland. Clara J was a young lady of 18, quite fair, and possessing as many charms as most youn ladies of her age and surroundings. Her father is an honest farmer, whose acres, al though numbered by the hundred, are not entirely free from incumbrance. Some three months ago a copy of the daily Cincinnati Enquirer, by some sad fate, fell into this yonng lady's hands, and her eye ran over the column of dis reputable notices headed "Personal." She had then no idea of answering any of the many solicitations for corre spondence, by any means. But it did in some way seem a charming thing to look them all over and speculate upon who the adventurers were, and what they were doing, and why they adver tised. And so she did look over these columns and so she did become inter ested. At length she came to the conclusion that it would be a romantic thing, just for fun, to answef one of these notices, and in a harmless way sec wnat might - .. ...... . , i . i i come of it. ltn near Deaung nign she penned a modest hote, which simply served to answer the advertisement, and in due course of mail a letter returned to her postmarked Chicago, and direct ed in a most beautiful hand. The seal was broken, when the letter was fouud to read as follows : Chicago, .Hiss Clara J. ilY Dear Miss: I was rejoiced to receive your note ot to-day. Since placing the notice in the paper to which your note was the reply I have received a large number of solicita tions to correspond, but yours was the only one that I have answered. J shall be pleased if it Is convenient and pleasant for you to do so to continue a correspondence until we shall become mutually acquainted, and thus I am certain we can not fail to be profited. Write me acain soon, and tell me wnat you think of this. Very respectfully. This was a charming letter to the young ladv. She read it over and over aaiiH and carried it with her for sev eral days. The beautiful chirography and perfect orthography made it espe .iniiw attractive, and she was convinced that "there could be nothing wrong, and, besides, if there were, she was only writing for sport, she thought, and nothing serious could happen. She had never "thought much of the rough-and-ready fellows of the village who had at various times shown their honest atten tions to her. She now had a real city Loan and was evidently flattered. She knew that he was some great man a bookkeeper, a head clerk, in some opu lent firm, or something of that sort. So when the proper length of time had elapsed, so that too great haste would not be manifest, she wrote again, and thus a regular correspondence sprang Things were wen aiong oeioie mc nannti tt tha vnimcr lad v were aware of what was going forward. At length he asked the privilege of coming out on a visit to her. She accepted, and the ume wnen tue mvcia, uuu were to meet face to face at length ar rived. He came, and as she is as much captivated with his presence a3 she has been with his penmanship and composi b. few short davs.and it is rumored they are engaged. To be ure, her parents are not pieaseu wun . . mi . : 1.. his appearance, xney consiuci u iai too showy in dress and plausible in con versation ; but Clara was satisfied, and was convinced that the old folks were of tiKKnrn and nnaonhisticated. and were trying to interpose needless obstacles to the course oi true love, adu so, at length, they yielded; and, as the Chica go gentleman sun nngereu near, aim nma iairnnn of consummating a mar riage with their daughter ,they at length consented, and the couple who were thus brought together were united in holy wedlock and departed witn wnai dowry the liberal father wa3 able to be stow. This was less tnan two monms ago, and last week the poor girl, now transformed into a sad and careworn woman, returned to her father's home. The sequel is soon told. The young huchinri wj a. cambler. and. upon ob taining his wife's money, had soon dis posed of it, and they were left penniless. He had resorted to various makeshifts to get the necessaries of life, but it had konn fnnnrl next to imnossible to get on. and the young wife, at length tired of the struggle, had written home for mon ey to return with. The father imme diately went to Chicago and returned with his daughter. it is preuy iveu settled that Wilson for that is the young iimhand's name was once a stock broker and in good shape to prosper, so far as this world's goods are concerned, but the fascination of gambling seized him, and has dragged him down. Left by the Colored Exodus. . A Charleston ' (S. C.) special of the 23d says : Now that the Azor has sailed and is probably some nunorcos oi mnes away, and the excitement attending her departure has somewhat abated, the question arises what is to become of the unfortunate emigrants who have been left behind and must remain in the city until her" return for the next voyage. Careful inquiry at the office of the Li- benaa Exodus Association develops tne fact that 175 emigrants, men, women and children, have been left behind and intend waiting to take passage on the next trip. Of this number twenty-five have sent their baggage and effects to Monrovia by the Azor ahead of them, while the remaining 150 have their goods and chattels . stored away in the lower rooms of the building in Exchange Street, occupied by the as sociation. 1 These unfortunate men and women, with their little children, are nearly all from the upper portion of the State and Georgia, and have left home and friends and spent the hoardings of years in their efforts to reach the prom ised land. Having made these sacri fices upon the assurance and induce ments of the Exodus Association the lat ter is, of course, directly responsible for their welfare until the Azor returns. Feeling this responsibility, and know ing that the eye of the community is up on them, the officers of the association have acted with commendable prompti tude. To-day they completed the pur chase of a plantation of 270 acres, on the west side of the Wando Kiver, in the parish of St. Thomas and St. Dennis, about ten miles from the city, where they propose to place a number of the emigrants and furnish them with oc cupation. V At dinner the host introduced to the favorable notice of the company a splendid truffled pheasant, amid mur murs of admiration. isn't it a beau iy" he tays. - " Dr. So-and-so gave it to me killed it himself."

A Washington Millionaire. There is one ex-Cabinet Minister in Washington who cares not a fig for pub lic opinion, and that is J. A. J. Cres well. Ho owns and occupies a mansion worth $100,000, and its contents are taxed at $100,000 more. During the four years that he was Postmaster-General he is said to have expended $35,000 for dinners, balls, etc., under his own vine and fig tree. His' salary at that time wa3 $32,000. He is now President of a Washington bank. His uncle, Mr. Tome, of Maryland, gave him $1,000, 000 some years ago. This fortune has since doubled. He received about $30, 000 for his services as Government at torney before the Court of Alabama Claims, and for five years past he has received $5,000 a year as one of the Commissioners to settle the accounts of the Freedmen's Bank. Wby Is It? The truths of science and pngresslve thought liave always been compelled to batter down the bulwarks of prejudii e and disbelief, or remain forever unknown. Why is it that people are so reluctant to receive farts that re late directly to tli phenomena of their own existence? Astronomers, upon discovering a star, assign it a place at once, and it is forever fixed. The rule by which a mathematical problem Is ouce solved becomes forever an ax iom; but no matter how clearly the principles which govern health and sickness be demon strated, some refuse to believe. Dr. Fierce's Family Medicines, which are now so generally . used, and descrvcHy p-ipular, wrre, in their early days, very reluctantly received by the people. To-day, Dr. Pierce's tioldeu Medical Discovery h;is outrivaled theold-time sarsapa rillas, his pellets are in general use in place of the coarse, huge, drastic pills formerly to much employed, while the sales of his Dr. Sage's Catarrh Remedy and his Favorite Pre scription are enormous. Where the skin is sallow Dd covered with blotches and pimples, or where there are scrofulous swelling and af fections, a few bottles of his Golden Medical Discovery will effect an entire cure. If you feel dull, drowsy, debilitated, have sallow col or of skin, or yellowish-brown spots on face or body, frequent headache or dizziness, ld taste in mouth, internal heat or chills alternated with hot flushes, low spirits and gloomy fore bodings, irregular appetite, and tongue coat ed, vou are suffering from Turjml Limr, or "Bitiowmes." In many cases of "Liver Vom plttinC only part of these symptoms are expe rienced. As a remtdy for rjl such cases, Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery has no equal, as it effects perfect cures, leaving the liver strengthened and healthy. Debilitated females who have undergone all the tortures of caustic and the knife, and yet suffer with those peculiar drarfjiug-iloKii sensations and weaknesses, can have guaranteed to them prompt and positive relief by using Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription; while constipation and torpid liver, or "biliousness," are promptly re lieved by the Pleasant Purgative Pellets.
