BOl'GHT AT A BARGAIN.
BY II. II. WELD.
I am fure my dear, then, you cannot object to
my attending one or two of the auctions. Cvery
bady else goes.'
But whnt do you wish to buy?'
Oh nothing that is I kuuw of nothing.'
'Then of course you want no money.'
I did'nt say that one would feel so foolish
you know, without any money in one's purse.'
But why should 'one feel so foolish,' when
one does not wan: to buy.'
Now, George, you aro to provoking. Give
me some mouey, and say nothing about it.
Easier aaij than done, my darling,
But you must.'
Mu3t is a bard word.'
So Kate thought, and dropt it, but ehe managed
to eay something else, which answered the pur-
pote. At any rate ehe raised the money, and ot ,
course eho attended the auction, because when a
husband wishes his wife 'would'nt go any where, '
and etill furnishes her the means to go if she!
cnoo3es, ehe is more apt naturally to observe me ;

There is a philosophy in
it. deeper than women untlerstnnd themselves
Though they practice upon it. A quiet, good,
compliant body, who gives her husband no trou-
ble, is like every thing else which gives no trouble
taken no nolico of. It requires a email leaven
of the mischievous to keep a man properly in his
placo. There is no getting along with tho men,
without tormenting them 'just u little;' at least
ao wo are solemnly assured by the ladies; and we
happen to know th it they proceed upon the prin
ciple, right or wrong, in many case?.
Kate went to the auction, but she went deter
mined not to buy. Wo know tho faci because
ehe protested it to her huaband, tho very last thing
beforo lie left the house; and because she protes
ted tho same thing over to herself, as she tied on
her hat. To guard against temptation she rolled
the notes very snugly up in her pujse, pressing
back the ring upon iliem with extraordinary care,
and then very carefully put tho purso away in
her bag, and took her bag upon her arm, as she
sallied out to find some one to accompany her to
the sale, which sho was so anxious lo attend, pos
itively for no h ug.
Il is n ruinous sacrifice, said tho uuttiuueor,
as the ladies entered. 'I have seen proparty fre
quently thrown away in my timo but nevtr nnv

offered ten dollars ten dollars ten ten ten

discrimination now is this not really too bad,
Our friend Kate, to whom the question was ad
dressed, with tha man's blandest smile, could not
help thinking that it really was a pittv! but how
could eho help it poor thing? Had feho possessed
the money of Croesus, she still saw tho absurdity
of setting up for a female philanthropist, to keep
auctioneers from ruening the country by selling
goods at less than a hundrctli part of their value,
as Mr. Bell protested he was doing. Still she was
sorry that her purse was not nt home. The cov
eted article, whatever it was, was knocked down
at the eleven dollars, and omething lo put
Kate endured all the suffering of a sensitive
mind, at the absolute bankruptcy that the eloquent
auctioneer mado the owners suffer upon every
article sold; but sho had promised George so pos
itively, and without his requiring a promise, that
eho would buy nothing, that sho did not like to
break her word. She did not even venture on a
single bid, though strongly tempted so tudomoro
than once, till a Brussels carpet was to be sold,
and sold for nothing too, ns Mr. Bell solemnly as
sured her it was going,or she certainly would have
determined to buy it. Bit as she was determin
ed not to buy what could she do, you know ?
Hero it is, ladies, nearly new, used only one
reason, and that very carefully. Il cost original
four dollars and fifty a yard and i3 sold only bc

To make, tho long story short, Ivito bought the
carpet for thirty-two dollars.
When her husband came homo lo dinner he
thought Kato looked fititiol. So sho did, but
ho was m'iro perplexed than tired; more vexed
iu mind with herself, than j ided in body. She
hd more than half a suspicion she had made more
than hall a fool of hcrsoif she knew the in titer
must be broached to her husband, and did not be
gin to seo how sho was to dj i?.
Luckly George was in a cnpital p'tod humor.
He had met his acceptances, nnd had something
over. Ho chatted merrily; and even proposed u
jaunt to the Springs when tho time for fashiona
ble gadding into the buh camo fairly round. He
complimented Kate nbout her dinner, and, nfter
a while so far cheered her that she tork courage
to tell him she had bought a now carpet that
an old carpet as good as new, for the basement.
"But I thought you meant to buy uolhito,,,
aid George. " "
To be sure I did not intend to purchase any
thing but this I bought at a bargain."
The hour parsed away very pleasantly. Georo-e
certainly did not seem much inclined to hear the
narrative of her auction experience, but put on i
a patient face while ehe described the excellent
bargains which she saw sold, and lock credit to
herself for her resolute adherence to her promise

missed the purchase of which she declared wouia
have been Moworight extravagance' and neglect
of such a chance for a ma!l investment, as might
. . i j ,i . ,
j not occur in a lifetime. George smiled incredu
Irtuslv when sha camo tr thfi carnet. Ha was
more' than half disposed to take his evening walk
without looking at it but could not so far disap
point his helpmate as thus to expose his indiffer
ence to her "great bargaiu." So he forced him
self to say.
"Wei!, Kate, I should like to see your purchase;
and 1 may as well fay what I think of it before
I look at it. It is wonderfully cheip, ana not
worn enough for the wear to bo perceived, and I
really think it would Lave been cheap at a hun
Knte smiled as though sura that what her hus
band Biiid in jesl, ho would repeat in earnest,
when he did actually see that paragon of second
hand articles. She Jed the way to the breakfast
r0orn, and proceeded to unroll the treasure,
"There are a few iuk spots on it, but on the

rose and turned round. George was leaning a
irainst the door, almost smothered with a sup-

him steadily in perplexed and grieved astonish
ment: and at lenith tenrs benan tosloal outfrom
j lno corners of her eyes.
"Ha! hn! ha'.1' at lenjrth brought out her bus-
band's merry laugh. "Forcivo me, Kate, but by
Jupiter, I can't help it. This is the same infer
nal old rag that I took from my oflico floor yes
terday, und gaf s tho porter. It has been with
me fivo years, and was second hand at that.
There is the same spot that the booby made in
upsetting the ink bottle."
Now was Kito fairly wretched. A woman's
quick thoughts carried her years ahead when still
that carpet would bo called up for her mortifica
tion. "Oh dear!" ehe sobbed ;"Inevershallhear
the last of it."
"You have heard the last of it, my dear Kit,
for I never will mention it again, if it pains you."
"Not pain but it certainty will not be very
Well, you never shall henr ono word of it a

But, sensible girl ns she was, she quietly put it
down on ihe fluuc ?bc bought it for. To do it jus
tice, it really wears well and sho declares if her
husband throws away such things he will bear
looking after. It is a capital good check in fami
ly quarrel"; it is an excellent hint when a joko
should be brought "on the carpet," and as it has
entirely cured his wife of her auction mania,
George himself now knowledges that it was

r""MIESE Pilli assist nature to aid the pood in throwing
M oft the bad. It it evident tbmt the more the bad pre
dominates over the ood, the more assistance the good re-
1 hit is proved by tne fact that in almost all violent
diseases, the patient requires large doses, and they often
have ery little etiect; that only proves the greet necessity
there is lor perseverance until powerful purging take place.
No one will doubt the truth ot this who will once fully try
it. I-et this most important truth be deeply impressed on
every mind, that all pain or weakness is owing to morbid,
stagnant, and corrupt humors which impede th" circuit lion
of tne blood, and IhM three pills if persevered in, will re
move all such humors by the stomach and bowels, which
may be justly termed the tewer of the human body. Yet
how different their action on those who have hot acrid bilel
Two or three pills will probably have very considerable ac
tion on tuch, in which case let them be persevered with un
til the action is Uniterm and pood health it restored. 1K
not, however, fail to have recourse to them in any rae of
illness, even after jou have been restored by ihrro, lor be
assured, that if you require medicine, that nothing will an
swer belter or sooner cure you. The human body is olten
subject to derangement, but purgation with this medicine
will sooner restore health than any other meant. DR.
Bli AN DRET solemnly atsures every one who reads this,
that it his opinion, and that opinion is founded on experi
ence, that this medicine w ill not only cure eery disease, to
called, (although it is a demonstrable fact, that there it on
ly one disease.) but will restore the human body to the prim
itive state of health enjojed by the patiiarchs of old, and
life, by a continued care tu keep the body in health witii
them, may be prolonged much beyond what it is now tor,
remember, it it CORRUPTION that destroys life, and
these piKs remove corruption. Natural death can never
take place until the principle of life it worn out, and this
would teldom be in the most weakly, until 50 or t0 yeart ot
ae, were we always careful to purge ou the commencement
BEWARE OF COUNTERFEITS. -Ask lo see the
