It would bo hard to tell why Cora Hla
noy married Ilenry Marshall. The only
reaaon seemod to bo becauso ho aaked her.
0 courao she could not be au old tnaid
that would be too dreadfnl aud when he
had been kind enough to make tho offer,
could sho be bo ungraoioua os to aay no ?
Certainly not. Sho waa twenty-three years
old when sho llrat made his acquaintanco,
and although a protty and accompllahed
gitl, ho waa her llrat lover, and when he
mado his kindly proposition she sald yea
as instinctirely as if ho had oflered her an
oyster patty or strawberry cream. Her
girlhood had been a very happy one, for
she had never been alighted or neglected,
even if she wero not a bello and beauty.
She always had plenty of partnera to
dance witb, and not being of a jealous
disposition, it did not make her hopeless
ly miaerablo to see other girla more fol
lowed and admired thau ahe waa. Tlieu
her home waa an unusually pleasant one.
Good tempers (so raro and so delightful)
prevailed in the family, and the dreadful
bickerings that so soon destroy the peaoo
and affeotions of all conoerned, wero sel
dom heard. Cora waa the only girl, and
her brothers worshipod her, gratifying,
if possible, her every wlsh. Iler pareuta
were senslble and judiolous. Although
they suppoaed, of course, that ahe would
marrv some time. thev were in no hurry
for sueh a consummation, and were quite
satisfied to see her. at twenty-three, a stui
ungathered flower. And when she told
her mother, in auoh a oalui, unimpas-
aioned wav. that ahe waa enfraged, Mre.
Blaney hardly knew whether to laugh or
cry. Cora'a coolneas amused and yet
troubled her, for ahe dreaded the thought
of surrendering her to a atranger, and she
feared that her daughter's heart waa
hardlv intereated in the matter at all
" Aro you aure that you love Henry V "
ahe asfced tne piaciaiooKing gin.
" Of course, mamma, i thinc no is

" Do you care more for him thau for
anyone else i '
" Yes, indeed. I never thought of mar
rvine any other man. I never had a
chance, you know."
"But do you love him batter than any
one else in the world ? "
" Better than you, mamma ? "
"Yes. my dear."
" Of course not. I never shall love any
one as well aa I love you and papa and
the threo boys."
" Then, Cora, you do not really care for
Henry, and it is not right for you to
"Bat he is satiBfied. He saya that
he knowa he can make me as fond of him
as he is of me, and he likea me better
because I never had any other man mak-
me love to me. He saya he never could
caro fora girl who had been engaged three
or four times.
" I am afraid, dear, that both you and
he will hnd that you have made a great
" You do not want me to be an old
maid, mamma ? "
" If I consulted my own and your f ath
or's wiabes f Bhould say yes, because we
would prefer to keep you with us ; but we
are not aelfish enough for that. AVo know
that you will be bappier as a married
woman, that is, if you love your huaband ;
" Don't you like Henry ? "
" Very much ; I do not know of a man
more likely to make a kind, devoted nua
band. All tnat aurpnses me is tnat you
do not care more for him."
" But I do like him verv much.
And that was all the aatisfaction that
Mrs. Blaney could get But Cora was
qaite determined to marry Henry, and he
was iust as determined not to give ner up,
She had taken his fanc? completely. In
deed he was deaperately in love with her,
hoping and believing that she, in time,
would care quite as much for him. ao at
the eud of a few moutha they were mar

pretty, tasteful house, and commenced
houaekeeping in a very ploaaant, coay way,
But. alaa I it was three hundred miles
away from the home of her girlhood, her
parents, aud her brotbera ; and poor Cora,
who had only a vague senae of gratitude
and a calm liKing aa regarded ner nus

love for her family, fonnd herself feeling
strangely lonely and diaaatiaued a great
deal of the time. Her huaband was kind

candies will not satisfy a hungry heart
Hestayed with her every evening, when he
did not take her to some social gathering
or place of amuaement, and was always
bright and cheerful and entertaining.
He devoted himself to her unceaaingly,
and wholly indesoribable waa his dismay
when, at the end of one montb, ahe aaked
permission to go home and stay a week
" Wby, Cora I " he exclaimed, looking
grieved and hurt, " is it possible that you
are tired ot me airoady "
" Ob, I aball die I" she moaned pitifully,
" if 1 do not see mamma. never waa

" Of courae not. You were very f rank
witb me. 1 never can accnse you ot try
ing to deceive me. But I did hope that
belore tnts you would have learned to love
me a little. However, go home and make
your visit ; but will you be satisfied to
stay only a week V"
"Oh, yes, Harry. I am so much
obliged," and ahe gave him a kiss whlch
" f!nrn." ho nakod. ono dav. " wonldn't
you liko to have aome of your girl friends
como and vlalt you ?"
" No, I do not caro about it," sne repuoa.
"Is thoro no ono you would liko to

" Only mamma."
" llang mamma I " ho felt inollned to
say ; but ropresaing so very lnjuuioioua uu

" Because Aunt Luoy is thero and aho
cannot leave her."
" Cannot ono of your brotbora como for
a day or two V
" Charloy is coming next week, but ho
can only stay one nlght."
And after his visit she did look brightor
for a few days, but that was all, and her
huaband diacovorod that when alono ory
ing waa her frequent oconpation. It was
very diacouraglng, but-ho was dotormiued
to have pationce, conaequently ho pro-
posed himsolf that aho ahould again go
home. Ilor faco waa radiant in a moment.
" Do you really mean it, Ilarry ?" ahe
askod, timidly, as if afraid to believe in
auv thinc so norfectlv dellchtful.
" Of course I mean it, Cora. I aee that
vou want to rro. and although it ia very
liard ior me to part wnn you, suu i ao
not mean to bo aelfish if I can holp it."
" You are just as good as you can be,"
aho sald, and sho went nomo again.
Mrs. Blanev cave her dauehter an auec
tionate welcome, but sho ahook her head
very gravely as Bho aaid :
" Tbis will never do, Cora. You know
that I am only too glad to see you, but
your place now is with your husband."
" Oh. mamma 1" she exclaimed, "I am
so lonosomc, it seems as if I should die."
" What did you marry for, then t
" I never sliould have married if I had
supposed that it would be so awf ully, fear
" (Jora. thia is very sad. lou do not
love your husband, that ia evident."
"liut I do like nim, mamma; i like
him very much indeed, and I know he ia
good aud kind. Of course I am not sen
timental and romantic, like aome of the
women in novels. I don't think that I
would be anxious to die for him, although
perhaps he would do aa much for me. But
you certainly cannot blame me for loving
vou and papa the most."
Her mother said no more, and wnen
Cora went home sho again looked cheerful
and happy. But in a few weeks she
drooped aa before, and then Harry went
u) see a niurriuu uuusiu, n uriguii, nouaiuia
woman, from whom he hoped to receive
good advice. She did not aay " I pity
vou." when ahe heard his story, although
she thouKht it.
" Harry," she exclaimed, " xou must
do something to rouae her to wake her
up. Exoite her iealouay in aome way."
" I am afraid sne doea not care enougn
for me to be jealous."
" It is not always the loving one that is
most susceptible in that respect."
"Bello, I cannot make my wifo un
" Of course not, you would rather auf
fer youraelf. You are too good to her,
Harry, and ahe haa had so little grief or
trouble that she does not appreciate your
kindness, and takea it as matter of courae.
Now you cannot reaaon witn anca a
woman : you must try a little innocent
stratagem. Let her lmagme that you are
growing lndiixerent, and ahe will come to
her sensea before you can realize it. I
know my aex better than you do, and we
are not all angela, althougn it certainly is
your duty to think bo."
Harry did not believe m stratagem (or
trickery, aa he termed it), but he was a
good deal influenced by his cousin's
words. He stayea to dinner, and re-
mained some time with her afterwards,
finding the pleasant chat of a bright,
cheerful woman very refreshing and
agreeable. When he went home Cora
met him with a aurprised and somewhat
aggneved expresaion upon ber f ace.
" I waited dinner a long time for yon,
Henry," she said.
" Hid you t ' he rephed. " I am very
sorry. ' liut ne did not tell ner wnere ne
had been, and she watched him with a
somewhat puzzled look afterwards. The
next morning he said, " Cora, I shall have
to go to New York for aeveral days, and
you had better make your mother a visit
during tnat time.
Now Cora would have enioyed a visit
to New York very much, and she said,
" Why cannot Lgo with you, Henry V"
" It is very kind of you, my darling,"
he anawered, " but of courae I know very
well that you would much rather be with
your mother than with me, so we will set
tle it in that way."
She looked aurprised, but aaid notbing
more to dissuade him. Therefore he
went to New York, and she to her early
home. But for some reaaon or other she
did not seem to enioy herself quito aa
well aa before, a vague feeling of diasatia
faction, for which she could not account,
preventing any genuine pleasure. And
certainly the first brief note which she
received from her huaband was not calcn
lated to relieve her uneasiness. It m
formed ber that he waa at home enjoying
the aociety of two lively young couaina,
conaequently sho noed not feel at all un-
easy about him, but could stay with her
motner aa long aa sne cboae to do so,
She did look a good deal disturbed, how'
ever, and the permission to remain with
her mother seemed by no meana satiafac
tory. Mrs. iilaney suspected the truth,
and was at first inclined to be a little in-
dignant that any one should dare to trifle
with the feelinga of ber darling cbild;
but when ahe went to ber husband for
conaolation ahe did not receive any,
" 1 love my cnild aa well as any man
can," be said, " but my Bympatniea in tnia
inatance are wholly and entirely with
Henry. I have seen a good many casea of
thia kind. Glrls should not marry if they
cannot be weaned from their mothers.
Cora is too old to be such a baby. She
waa determined to be married, and now
she wants all the privileges of a young,
" But, Arthur, do you auppoao that her
huaband haa really ceased to care for
" I do not think so at all, but he is
probably tired of all this nonsense. and.
as ho finda that kinduesa haa no effect, he
meana to try something elae. He ia a
good young man, with plenty of common
nonao, and it will all come out righU If
he were a aentimental idlot, Cora would
never care for him in tho world. Just let
thinga take their courae."
So the lady smootbed her ruflled
plumes and took her husband's advice ;
but she watohed Cora with anxious eyes.
The latter looked grave and thoughtful,
" But hla cousins 1 He aooms vory fond

"Intrudo in your huaband'a houso,

"I think it would bo lll-advlaed. Of
courao Henry does not feel very pleaaantly
towards me, forhe must think that I have
influenced you in all this. Ho is a good,
kind man, but ho is only human after all.
You had better go home alono, and by
and by I will mako you a visit. But re
membor, Cora, that you are his wife, and
that it ia your duty to mako his liomo

when ahe reached her home she was quito
aurprised to find no one there but tho
" The young ladies lef t two daya be

ladiea they were."
when Henry oame homo it waa his
turn to bo BurpriBed : but ho could not
conceal his delight at having his young
wife witb btm again.
11 Why dtd you not wnto for mo to
come?" she aaked, in a half-aggrieved
tono. " I did not know that you were
" Cora," ho replled, " I wanted you to
come of your own acoord, and it makes
me very happy to see you hero again."
liut as soon aa he had uniahed his din.
ner he put on his ovorcoat preparatory to
" Why, Harry I " aho exclaimed, in utter
amazement, " are you going to leave me ? "
"Ho you want me to stay at home,
Cora ? " he aaked, with a pleased and
happy look. She suddenly burst into
tears, and seating bimseit beaide ner, ue
drew her head upon hia ahoulder, aoothing
her tenderly. " Do you really want me to
atay with vou, my darling l "
" indeed 1 do," ahe aobbed, " and 1 will
never leave you any more. I wasn't half
aa happy at home "
But here ber unexpected conlession was
checked by the bappy kiases that be sbow-
ered upon ber npa. And then be had bia
own conf esaion to make, which she received
very mdulgently, for jealonsy was not at
all natural to her, aud the reconciliation
waa a very perfect one. Cora did not
grow liatleaa and lndiuerent alter thia,
but when her mother catne to visit ber
she found, instead of the homesick wife, a

" How did you come to be publisher of
" Uncle Tom'a Cabin ?"
" I auspect." he renled. " it was prinoi
pally because I was a rabid anti-slavery
man, although the tact tnat i naa previ
ously been publisher of a book by the
Rev. Henry Ward Beecher may have had
something to do with it. After a careful
examination, I concluded that the story
would not only repay the cost ot publi
cation in book form, but would yield
some profit. Fossibly I was helped to
that conclusion by my firm conviction
that the volume would prove a strong
anti-slavery docnment. At all events, I
expressed a willingnesa to pnblisb' it,
and the next tbing was to arrange

that, from the day I first began to print it,

then there were complamts tbat tho vol
umes did not appear fast enough. In a
little while I was able to inform Frof essor
and Mrs. Stowe that their percentage
already amounted to $10,000, and although
my contract with them required me to
give a note only, I would pay them that
sum in casb."

news. xbe sum was bo vastiy beyond
anything they expected or bad heretofore
poaaesaed, that it appeared to them like a
great fortune. When they called at my
office I handed Profeasor Stowe my check
for 910,0uU payable to bis order. Neitber
the professor nor Mrs. Stowe had ever be

cautioning him and his wife never to go

I bade them good-day, and they went
their way reioicing. When I gave them

testimony ia etnphatio to the effeot that

and diminiahes the mental power.' If, aa
ho toatifies, a large proportiou of tho moat

conventionally deemod moderate,' then
it is certain that suob use of them muat

beat are painfully aware that hia percep
tiona are less keen, hia judgments leas
sound, his temper less serene, his spiritual
vision leaa clear, because he tarries every
day a little too long at the wine. Even
those who refuso to entertain oscetio theo
ries respecting these beverages may be
able to see that there are uBes of them
that stop short of drunkenneaa, and that
are still extremely hurtful to the mind,
and the heart aa well as the body. That
