Tlio Wife as a Financlal IIelp-3Icct. Manv woraen are extravaeant, Bbsurdly and thonghtlessly bo, and ruin their hus banils fmanciallv. Mauy men are miserly and mean, thoufthtlessly sti absurdly and unwisely so, and deslrojr not only their wives' happineas, but their own also. All thlfl arisea from a laok of perfect trust in each other. It is taken for granted that the wife ia incapable of correot reasoning or ood judgment in the use bf money, and instead of finding a valuable sympa thizsr and help-meet in thia respect, the husband so treats her that she soon needj all her reasonine, and wit, too, to Ret enough money from her husband for her personal expenses. His businesg is to win it from the world, and hers to get it from him. There are some cases where one or the o'her of tha parties sometimes the woman, and oftener the man does not seem capable of using really gcod judt ment iu regard to money matters. In seneral the woman is apt to use as good jungment as the man, and instead of being compelled.to eraploy all her reason ing faculties in " coaxing " it from her husband, she onght to be eucouraged to put thern to a better use, as she would, if he would cive her a chauce. If he would consult her, and above all things encour aee her to use her judgment, and confer with her in regard to whatever conoerned both, he would be a rioher man, and she a happier woman. It is humiliating to a woman of any spirit to be obliged to beg for every ceut, and theu have it doled out to her s if she was aure to use it fool ishly, if not curbed aud checked. And the most fond and loving of husbands often do this very thing. They do it, not realizing how muoh they loso in not mak ing a true confidant and help-meet of the wife. The wife, on the other hand, feels hurt and btlittled, and not being allowed to use for herself her reasoning faculties or her own judgment, gradually settles down to such a state of things, and en durea it only because she sees no way out of it. She dislikes to say to her husband in so many words, " Why do you not trust to rny judgment V" She fears he would misuudorstaud her and think she was setting np her own judgment against his, and so fche plois on day after day iu the old grooves, and her husband thought lessly does the same. It is a pity that she could not oontrive some way of put ting him in her place for afew weeks that he might have his eyes opened. Little Mrs. Gray did this, and a late number of Peterson's tella us with what success. The young husband and wife had just risen from a nicely f-pread table, and the room was neatly and taatefully furnished. There was no indication of poveity there, yet Mts. Gray's voice and manner were f altering as she asked for some post age stamps. " How many V" asked her husband, curtly. "Three will do. I thought I would write to mother and the girla." " Did you ever rockon up, my dear, how much you spend for postage stampa in the oourse of a year ?" asked Mr. (iray, 8s he lit his f ragrant cigar. " Well, let us see. You write at least five letters a week, which is flfteen centa, aud fifty-two times fifteen are seveu dollars and eighty cents a year, to say nothing of paper and envelopes. I havn't a correspoudent in the world, outslde my business." "Your friends," said the wife, "live near jou, white mine are in another Btute. Do you wish me to give up writing to them V" Aud her faoe took on an extra tiuge of color. "By no meano. I merely mentioned the eost of the thing. liut I must go. Go'od bye." " Albert I" she said, timidly. .Mr. Gray turned back. " Can you leave me five or six dollars ? , I want to go down towu to-day." I " Five or six dollars 1" exclaimed Mr. I Gray in astonishment. " What on earth K, can you want with five or six dollars ?'' W "I knew you would wonder, but I have , needed some money for a long time to get somn neoessary articles." " I gave you two dollars last week." " I know it, aud I used it for materials to work up for our church fair." " Church fiddlesticks 1" said Mr. Gray conteroptuously. " Why, I dau't see what you ned with five or six dollars." " Hre is a list of what I need," said Mrs. Gray, handing a little fclipof paper to her lmabaud : One palr o' kM glove 1 1 (H) One palr of MlpiK-r oo One ilr of llalbrlggan lione. , j (iu fcUola Crpe ile lUse ; ju Tolal , tTTi " Crepe de lisse ' Whafs that V" " Hulltmg for the neck."

Mrs. Gray onjoyed her husband'a horri fied look. " Flain sewing I Annie, I thought you had more prlde." " I had too much pride to bfg of you what I could oarn myself," she said with Bome spirit. " Well, here is four dollara and a half. Trv to make that do." And ha hurried off. Mrs. Gray sighed. " He means well," ahe said, " but men seem to think women are like childrou, not. to be trusted with monev." Meanwhile Mr. Gray was soliloquizing. " Strange, how extravapant women are. Annie is the best little wife in the world, but she doea not know tho worth of money anv more than child. That four dollars ard a half will be spent before night. Women cant keep money." Mrs. Grav wentdown town, as intended; but she wa'lked itstend of riding, in ordf r to save her mony. While down she felt faint and htwgry from her walk, and would have liked a lunch, but she had no manev to spare. " Oh I by the way, Annie, did you go down to-day ?" asked Mr. Gray at supper that night, "Yea." " Spent every cent, I'll bo bound," jok- ingly. " No. I have exactly two cents lef t ; but I walked both ways, got no crepe de lisse, and went without lunohoon although faint with hunger." Mr. Gray looked shocked. " Why did you not come to me ?" " Beoause it was out of the way ; and because, to tell the truth, I felt too cross." "Crosa with me V" " Yes, with you ;" and poor Annie's grievances burst forth. " To be going along the street hungrier than any beggar, while mv husband is known as the successful Mr. Gray I To have no money in my pocket, because my husband thinks I am not to be trusted I Uefore I married you I was in business the same as you ; that is, I earned my living by teaching ; you earned yours by trading. Now, suppose when we married you had given up your business to assist me, or because it interfered with your new duties, and I allowed you no money to spend as you choose. I dressed you well, to be aure; but gave you no money without the whya and wherefores, and whithers being inquired into ; in short, treated you aa you do me V" " You exaggerate the case, Annie. Men and women are differently Bituated. I sbould think you would be glad to be saved the trouble of earning a livelihood." "But just consider the disadvantages of an empty purse. Put yourself in my placp. How would you like itV" " Why if I only had to ask first-rate." " Well, then, suppose you let me carry the pocket-book for a week." " But, Annie, it isn't practicable. You couldn't attend to business at the store." " Of course not. It is only your per sonal expenses I will regulate. You come to me for what money you wish to spend for yourself ; that is all ; and give me your word that you will take no money from the stnre." " All right. I'll do it, just to show you that it is easy enough. Here'a the pocket brok." And he gave it into her hand. " But I'll take a quarter, firat. to begiu on I " " What do you want of a quarter ?" " Cigars." " Well, here are two ten cent pieces ; try to make that do. Did you ever reckon up how much your cigars coat in the year ? Let me see. You smoke at least two a day, at an average coat of ten cents apiece, which amounts to one dollar and forty cents s week. Now, fifty-two times one forty makea seventy-two dollara and eighty cents a year, to say nothing of those vou give to your friends. A hun dred dollars will 6carcely cover your ex penses in that line." " As our old friend Abigail Stillman says, ' Who'd a-thunk it,' " said Mr. Gray, laughing; but he was surprised to find the sum so large. The next morning Mr. Gray had gone some diatance from the house before he remembered that he had only twenty-five cents. " I'll risk it," said he to himself. " Per haps I'll not want to buy anything. I'll show Annie that a man can do without money." " Ilello, Gray I" cried a voice, interrupt ing his reilections. " What is the brain study about?" It was his old friend, Frauk Haymond. Tlie two men had not met since Mr. Gray'a marriage, and as Fratik was to re main in town for a week, Mr. Gray in vitpd him bome. Il lit a cigar and handed its mate to Frank ; as he did thia the two conversed old times till they reached Mr. Gray'B plaje of business, when tbey separated, Frank agreeing to be at the Gray's at six o'clock. Aunie was apprised of his com ing by a note from her husband. Going home that night, as was his in variable custom, he ran into Benton'a to buy aome cigars. Benton was surprised to see him drop the dozen he had taken up. " Are they not good ?" inquired the uviuer. o mintt tuem our choisest " "They are good. But on secpnd thought I will not take any to-night. Mr. Gray had always purchased cigars as he used them j but now he wiahed he had a box at home. However, he decided to ask his wife for some money, and run out and fill his case without his friend's knowltdge. Twenty-fourhours hadpassed, and he had already begun to experience a feeling of shame, and a disiuclination to ask for money. A thought of Auuie crossed hia mind. " IMhaw I ehe doesu't have to treat her friends to cigars," he uiuttered. Frank Haymond was already at hi house, and Annie had a tempting little supper for thtmj aud Annie was looking her prettiest. When supper was over, he took Annie aside, and asked for a dollar, which she gave him, grudglugly. Then he excuaed himself for a moment, and bought some cigars. They were wretched aff irs, how ever, aud filled tho house with a villainoua odor, for he had to get them at a new place. Benton's being too f ar olT. The next day the two friend? btarted out together, when Mr.Gray, with an air of having forget somothiug.said, 11 Kicuse me a miuute." " I'll go baok with you, if you have forgotteu anything," baid Mr. Uaymond. Mr. Gray clappod hia hand on his pocket. " I thought I had forgotten my pocket book, but I haven't," he said. " So it's all right," and then he hurried on, hia cheeks tingling with shame at tho deceit. But he could not risk having his friend go back with him, and stand by while he aakcd for money. Mr. Gray was lucky that day. He had no calla for money, and bo had half a dozen of those horrid cigars left, a couple of which he 8tnoked on the street after hia friend left him. In fact, he coucluded to risk another day in the same way. But on this day ho realized tho old adage, "It never rainabut it poura," for from being asked to chango a bill, togetting his coat ripped, and asking for credit at his tailor's, the day was a sories of mortifications. Annie was unawaro of all this. Iu fact she thought her husband was failing to realize the situation, so when, at night, Mr. Gray asked her for money to spend the next day, she wickedly put him off with some excuse, and ingeniously evaded tho request until he waa forced to profer it before his friend. " You want a dollar or two I What do you want with a dollar or two ? " " There, Annie, don't bother a fellow. I'm in a hurry. But with great deliberation she drew out a qnarter, and laid it down, then another and another. " Let me see three quarters seventy five, ten is eighty-five ten ninety-five, and here is a three-cent piece nlnety eight. centa. Will that do ?" "Yes," and Mr. Gray bustled them into his pocket and hurried from tho room. Ile wa8 in hopes his friend would in quire into the cause of tbe f-cene, when be would tell him of the cornpact and how it originated. It would then pasa as a jokc. But Mr. Haymond did not make any re mark. Instead he thought to himself : " Good gracious I What a grind she isl And I thought her so pretly. I never thought that Albert would make such a meek husband. Catch me getting married and having quarters doled out to me that way I He pitied his friend's embarrasament, but did not appear to notice it. Instead, he chatted unconcernedly of old friends and pait times. SuddeDly turning a cor npr they met two mutual acquaintances. Hand shakingg and inquiries followed, and the four had so muoh to say that Mr. Gray decided to rend a note to his part ner, and spend the forenoou with his friends. Tho party now adjourned to a restaur ant, and Mr. Haymond, aware of the ex act aroount of his, Mr. Gray's funds, or dered lunch. The next day, which was Sunday, Mrs. Gray, without being asked, gravely handed her husband fifty cents. Mr. Haymond was present, but did not appear to notice it. He was apparently engrossed in the book he was reading. But he heard Mr. Grav ask, " What's that for ? Oh, the contribu tion box I Thank you I" But to himself he added : " Why not save it to go with the twen-ty-five cents I have already, so as nnt be compelled to ask for money on Tuesday ? Then I can succeed in getting some for Monday's trip without the knowledge of , my friends, and thia absurd farce will end without any more unpleasantness." I Before separating, a little excnraion to I Beech Island was proposed for Monday. I Mr. Gray invited them, meantime, to spend the evening at hia hou'se. Annie was in excellentspirita; sang, and plnyed, and was altogethcr charming. Mr. Hay mond, remembering the money, decided tnat matnmony was a snare when women were so deceptive. Monday morning came all too soon ; for try as he would he could not get the attention of Annie, when he endeavo'ed to broach the subject of tbe projected trip. Fidgeting with his knife and fork, he cleared his throat at last, and made a plunge. Mrs. Grav elevatpd her eyebrows. "Tothe Island? Pray what for ? It is hardly the time for excursions." Mr. IUymond really pitied his friend's evident distrtbs, so he said, jokingly : "Why, you see.-Mrs. Gray, we want to get off for a time, as we used to when boys." The lady amiled grimly and said : " Albert is, as you see, too extravagant by half. I cannot, in the present state of our finances, give my consent to hia go ing." With these words, spoken with great composure, she walked off, leaving the gentlemen to themselves. " Albert, I never would stand that 1" said Frank, vehementJy. " To be tutored like a schoolboy 1 Haven't you anv monev ! at the store ? If not, call upou me for any ! amount, and let us hurry, or we shall be late." j " No. I am afraid I cannot go. I am i pledged not to take any money from the Btore, and it would not be right to accept a'iy from you." ! Glad of an excuse, Mr. Gray then told j his friend the secret of hia wife's con I duct. i "Whewl so that is it," Baid Frank. i " Well, I'm glad to have my faith in i womanhood restored : but isu't she over- doing the matter? Did you over refuse her money before others ?" " I think I did last summer, when Mrs. Oseood was visiting her. They wished to visit a friend residing in Biddleford. I thought it was foolish and told my wife bo, aud finally refused my wife the money. The truth ls," apologetically, " I had met with some heavy Iosses, and felt that we must economizs." " Why not have allowed her to use her own judijment V Perhapa ahe intended to ecotioinize in other ways," said Frank. " I believe she said somethiug of the kind. But to tell the truth, I had got into tbe way of thinking that women needed to be continually curbed, or they would run into extra vagances." " It'a a shame to treat a high spirited woman in that way." " I realize it now, f ully, more f ully than you can, unless you go through with my experience. Aunie said she had done plain sewing to pay for things ahe needed rather than ask me for the money ; I un derstand it now; I would far rather have earned the ruouey for our trip by sawing wood thau have asked for it. Faucy hav iirg to always ask I" " Do you know, Albert, I am glad this has happttned V I may marry sometirae j iu fact, I'm thinking of it strougly, and now I shall avoid the course you have taken. Otherwise I presume I might have done just tbe same. I believe a great many men do." " Do ? Why, yes. My mother never had a siugle penny without aj-king fa'her for it, and she helped to earu it all, and was prudeuce and iudustry personified. I'll turnover a new leaf. Ab, here come our friends." Mr. Haymond, to Mr. Gray'a great re lief, said it would not be poasible for him to go on the proposed trip, owing to un forseen circuinntaucea, whereupon, Mr. Gray, in au oil-hind manner, ptoposed that aa Frank could not go, they ahould all come to hia house that evening again. " My wife will be glad to see you," said he. The week had paased, and " Hichard was himself again," or could bo ,if he choae; but hia wifo had mirrored his past actiona so truly and forclbly that he had no wish to repeat himself. Annie had taken care to curb his extravagancra by giving him always a little lesa than be asked for, and invarlably inquiring just how he spent it, and, meantime, reckon ing up how much ho had spent each day, with great exactness. All this, as he knew, was copied from his own custom. Besides, ho rellected. if he found it so dls agreeable for a week, how much more so must it seem, year aftnr year, with no prospect of a change ? In sborl, he felt himself to be the meanest man in exlst ence. " 'Tia ono half to own it, and the othrr half to reform," we suspect. " There, Albert," said his wife, " I am glad the farce is ended. Itwa8 Tuesday evening, at half-past six, preclaely, when Mrs. Gray said this. At the same time she handed her hus band hia pocket-book ; and then ahe re turned to her seat. Mr. Gray counted the money carefully, and then divided it into two equal piles. This accomplished, he crossed over to his wife and placedonein her lap, saying : " Ilenceforth we will share alike. Buy what you choose, I have faith in your pru dence and judgment. I am not infallible. Why need I sit in judgment upon you V" Mrs. Gray's eyes glistened with pride and happlness, as she replied : " Believe me, Albert, you will never re gret this ; for now I shall have an oppor tunity to use my reasoning faculties." And AIbrt never did regret it. Chris tian at Work. Frcnks of Forgetfulness.

JNear one of our Atlantic sea-ports there resides an old whaling captaiu commonly known as Uncle Gurdon. To keep from getting rusty, he made his home on the river bank, where he could keep a boat, and fish or paddlo about as much as he liked. The plnce was about five miles from the city, anu, as occasion required, Uncle liurdon and his wife. would journey tnwnward for the purpo9e of shoppiug. Heaching the city, the horse and wagon would be left at the water-trough on the Parade, and each would go in different directions, carrying their bundles to thia corumon re ceptacle. the first through waitiug for the other. Un one ot these shopping excur sions Uncle Gurdon made several tripa to the wagon, finding each time that additions had been made to the store of bundles a sign that his wife was buay. Having completed his purchases, ho un hitched his horse, and the ferry-boat hav ing arnved, cumbed into the wagon and drove on board. While cros3ing the river one oi his acquaintances stepped up and asked how he was getting on. " Well, 1 m getting on nicely, but I m bothered juat now. " Why, is anything going wrong t" "Xo, nothing special : but I came down to do &ome shopping. and I've forgotten a parcel I waa to get," and tho old gentleman scratched his head in perplexed manner. " Well, I wouldn't worry. You will think of it next time," said the neighbor; and the boat having reached the Jandiug, Uncle trurdou drove astiore, aud went ou toward home. When nearly half-way there he was met by auother friend, who stopped to have a chat. " IIow do you do to-day, Uncle Gurdon V" he asked. " Oh, nicely, nicely; tnnugh i'm a mt worried just now, " Worried ? what about Y" " Well, you see, rve been to town shopping, and there's a parcel of some kirwl that I've forgotten. I can't think what it is, and lt bothers me." "Oh. never mind it You will recollect what it is before yougo again. By-the-way, Uncle Gurdon, how is your wife V" " Jerusalera I " cried Uncle Gurdon, slapping hia knee with great energy. " It's my wife that I've forgotten 1 She went to town with me to do some shopping, and I was to wait for her." And Uncle Gurdon turned around, and went back to the ferry for the parcel that he had left behind. Jlarper's Magas'me for June. X Hogue Oiitwitted. The following anecdote is related of Mr. James Sheafe. who yeara ago was a leadlng grocer in Biddeford. It appears that a man had purchased some wool of him, which had been weighed and paid for, and Mr. Sheafe had gone to the desk to get change for a note. Happen ing to turn hia head while there, he saw iu a glasa which swung so as torefl'ct the shop a stout arm reach up and take from the sbelf a heavy white oak cheese. Instead of appearing suddenly and rebuk ing him for the theft, as another would, and thereby losing his custom forever, the crafty old geutleman gave the thief his change aa if nothing had happened, and then, under pretense of lifting the bag to lay it on hia horse for him, took hold of it, and exclaimed, " Why, blest me, I must have reckoned tbe weight wrong." "Ohno,"said the other, "you may bo sure you havo not, for I counted with you." " Well, well, we won't dispute the matter ; it is easily tried," said Mr. Sheafe, putting the bag into the scales agaiu. " There," said he, "I told you so. I knew I was right. I made a misUke of nearly twenty pounda. However, if you don't want the whole, you ueedn't have it ; I'll take part of it out." " No. no." said tho other, staying the hauds of Mr. Sheaf" on their way to the Btringa of the bag, " I'll take the whole." Aud this he did, payiug for hia dlshonesty by receiviug the skim-milk cheese at the rate of forty five centa a pound, the price of the wool.
