T1IE FISHERMAN’S DAI OUTER.
Only the daughter of a poor Cape Cod
fisherman was ibis “Mother Anita,’* whose
Ittilc story 1 am gu'mg to tell you, translating
it from t‘ ~ rough phrase of the rude but
kindly people among whom 1 sprat my last
sumr.er’s vacation, into a few s'mple words
of my own. 1 do not think you will call it
a sad story ; it is not so to me, although I
traoed it back .’nun the closing chapter, writ*
ten on inaible, ic the unpreUnding little
graveyard:
XOTBIB ANITA,
Age, 26.
Not sad, since death, coming however
early, cannot mar the proportions of a beau
tiful life. The power o' the iconoclast stops
without outward form--the fair ideal re
mains forever more a port of the world’s
incorruptible treasure.
Anita’s sweet foreign naL-e suited her well.
Perhaps it; choice bad been guided by some
•ubtle mother instinct, spr oging arbutus
like, out of rough soil, and ai udat the stern
suow of circumstances.
Her features were a r^re sto ly, combining
the beauty and nameless grace for wh.ch we
do nti often look among tb"*e whose very
life seems a continual war uilh hostile ele
ments But nature, in touching the lace of
her child to a marvelous perfection, had scfc
ed in lender ooedienc. to the great law of
compensation traceable through all the
works and ways of God—for Anita was
hopelessly hunchbacked. Her deformity
was the key to all her life. Doomed to a
certain solitude and isolation from the work
and play of her sturdy brothers and sisters,
debarred from active participation in to
many of their interests, the child waa
thoughtful and sensitive far beyond her
yeais.
Some natures thus shut in by bodily infir
mity have contracted upon tbemselvea, tike
the torture chambers of old. 1 thwider
t ven now to thins how once upon a solitary
journey, as our stage coach drove up to the
lonely inn which marked a little country
station, 1 saw standing in tbs roadside
with averted face, a small figure, no larger
than an ordinary child of five or eix years
old, but strangely broad-shouldered, for one
ro young, and as 1 still looked curiously,
it turned about with a alow, defiant move
ment, and a womun’a face gasod up at me,
nark, bitter, despairing—the black eyas, un
der their heavy brows, full of the fierce fire
which marked lbs gradual starvation of a
soul.
Anita’s face expressed a ’ery far different
history. The sorrowful mystery of her lot
weighed heavily upon her, but could not
shake her simple trust that God who made
her, remembered and loved her still.
The rough lishermao, who often looked
after her with tender whispers aa she passed,
ielt, pet baps, that her brow grew saintly un
der tn« crown of suffering, although they
would hardly have pwt the vague suffering
io words. .
T..e lung, low reach oi sandy coast, ex
tending fr; many miles along the osps ia si
ways peculiarly dangerous lor temail dim
ebied by a northwest gals; but tbs eldest
Bailors could remember no more fatal
season loan the fell sod winter when Anita
waa eight years old. Ai many as twenty
anil ware known to go to pieces ia n single
harbor of tbe little r thing Tillage. There
tu no lack of brats hearts and wilting
bends to gits aid when aid wee possible,
hot too often human atr-.gth and sympathy
•toed poweriem on tbs shore end saw the
pitilees surges engulf their victims, tearing
M tram behind.
Sometimes au incoming ware, like aoam
huge feline creature, would tom its helpless
prey, in cruel sport, far up th« sandy beech,
and so it happened that ana night a a per,
with the form of a woman Inched upon it,
was dropped at the very teat of Anise’s fa
ther, sturdy John Grey. When the pieoeof
sail doth fastened a best bar waa unwnaad,
e child was fouod tightly clasp sd ia the asms
si the poor dsad muther e liute hey per
haps a yew oU. Jobs Grey feeling hasuly
far, tbs little hearty ibotrit .be dmosrm^d
Ms oottag* at a swinging run, leaving hi*
companions to follow more slowly with their
sadder and heavier burden.
Anita, who had been etaading at the win
dow, (training her eye* into the darkness,
and listening In awe-atruck silence to the
boon ef the treekere and the rash and roar
of the storm outside, met him at the
door with outstretched arms and a look that
aeemed lo comprehend tbe situation in a mo
ment. Scarce knowing wby he did so, tbe
hardy fisherman laid the ohiid m her arms.
* wonderful light suddenly broke over her
(bee.
“Oh, i other! mother! you can save
him!’’ the cried.
The fisherman's wife was well versed in
all tbe lore of restoratives, and befjre two
boars had pissed the poor little waif, time
anaiohsd oat sf tbe at, slept peaoefuily io
Anita's arms A loyal child he was,strong
limbed and beautifal, tbe blue net-work of
reins showing with sterling distinctness

templet. Dis little garments testified to the
prou l and tender care wbieh bad been taken
of h ■ 5 bet nothing found upon him or his
poor mother gave any clue to his identity.
The sea kept its secret well, for no other
token of the hapleM wreck ever came to
land.
“Well, mother,” said John Grey’* gruff
but not unkindly rolce, one day, “the Tittle
’un must go to the asylum, f s'poee ?”
“I doo': know,** was the wife’* hesitative
answer, the universal mother tenderness
looking through her eyes; may be we could
keep it ourselves, John!”
“No !” was the decided reply, “No ! tbe
child'll be well took care of there, and you
have got no ektra pair o’ hands for baby
tending, let alone iu bein' hard enough
sometimes to put bread into the mouths of
our own.”
Amu rote up irons her scat by the fire,
1 with the baby gathered close to her throb
bing heart, and stood before her father.
Some great change had oome over her, for
; a brief moment the soul within aeetued to
wree: from an untoward fate the boon of
erect grace from the childish, tnisshappen
! fora Two sparks like fire glowed ib her
eyes, and her lip* were pressed tightly to
| getbsr.
“Anils! Bices me ! what is it ails the
child T”
“Father I" she said, pointing over her
sbouider; “father, 1 urn not like other ebil
dren. 1 sever can do what they do, or have
what they have. Sometimes 1 have thought
that I was not of any use. Give me the ba
by.”
T'ue fisherman tried to draw her down
upon bit knee. There was a world of un
spoken underne-a in the rough can e*.
“Cbi.d,” he said, what could you do with
it—a little thing like you ?”
“Ob ! I could take care of him—I know
—I 1 now I oouid I” she answered, her voice
falling into a low, recitative, the undertone
of resistless emotion. “No one need nun i
him bat me, and I would never be tired !
Ob, father 1 lather ! God gave him to me out
of the ruarmg seas—to me,father. You won’t
lake him away f”
He drew his coarse sleeve across his eyes.
“W'h.t do you say, mother?’’
If is wife was weeping.
“Anita’s a bandy little thing, and power
•rful womanly for her age 1 guess we
might let her tiy, father.’’
The unnatural glow faded fr >iu the cuild's
face, and the little strained figure relaxed,
and she sank down in ber place, sobbing
hysterically. As her tears tell ou ite lore
head the babe turned uneasily ; but on ila
first low moan Anita was quiet in an insiani.
A marvellous expression of age and self-re
hanoe came into her face. She held tne
ohild cloocr, and commenced alow, moaning
lullaby.
The fisherman rose and went out, beckou
mg to his wife.
“Mother," he said, “I’ve a notiou it's God's
work for the child—leastwise, I can’t gain
say her I”
Moitba were eounted into jean, and
tber. was no one to interfere with Anita’s
strange adoption. Tbe bo.’—“Rescued"
was tbe odd, old-fashioned name abe gave
bun—developed into wontleriul beauty. Ani
ta seemed to bare no life but iu bun ; at ber
tome and among her neighbors she came to
be known only as “Mother Anita,” or “Tbe
Little Mother.’’ So proud of him she was.
From tbe first abe seemed to have accepted
it aa a quiet certainty that be was fashioned
of a finer material, and of a higher tort of
life, than she bad known. She was never
quite content without him at ber tide, iiow
much she suffered as he grew o d enough to
be taken sometimes with ber father aud bro
thers in tbe boat, was hinted by tbe red glow
in ber cheeks, aud tbe restlessness of every
look and motion, till she bad him safely back
again.
City people, who began to find tbe little
village pleaaant for a summer’s fishing or
bathing, ware quick to mak friends wiib
tbe deformed girl, whose epiritosi face, ra
diant with love for ber beautiful young
charge, attracted them like some rate pic
ture. Many offered ber gifts of money,
which abe declined with gentle gratitude,
asking lor hooks instead—always adding
apologetically, “to touch him, you know.”
So it happened that a varied library accu
mulated by degrees in her little chamber.
Aa abe read and studied, glimpses of a new
world opened before ber, but aa tbe little abe
learned only hinted at what she could never
know, tbs sad conviction forced itaeir upon
I that aba could, after all, never be her boy’s

Tbe great wreoch of ber life came when
Rescued waa twelve years old.
Judge Thorne, with bis wife and little
daughter, came down to tbe tea shore, their
hearts sore for tbe loaa of tbeir only bojr.
The strong rese nblanoe of Revened to her
dead child, aa she chanced to see him for the

his strange history was told ber, she begged
her husband to take him for their owu.
W hen Judge Thorue preferred hia request
to old John Grey, be shook hia head.
“Mot hot ’twoali. he the makin' of tbe

—why ! the poor little mother would grieve

But aa the Judge still urged, ha said at

Anita came in, aud Judge Tborne stood

She herself sickened at last, wasting slow
ly but sorely.
“I don’t think we’d ever rightly known
bow maeh she suffered all her lire ” old John
Grsy eaid to me as we sat together in the
ohw- -h door one Sabbath afternoon after
ssrvioa, looking toward the graveyard, whose
simple stones were shining in the prophetic
glory of sunset, “She was so cheery and

was ae to the last. There was oniv one

There was a heavy storm tbe night sbe

Advice to Wive*.
Iroa t e SI. L Hone Journal.
I im heartily tiled of ihe Mu.sclens artioiet
which we read daily in the different ex- '
changes, and offered as advice to women,and,
in the name of fcmaleity, I protest against
it. The mischief i* just this, women have
been advised entirely too much, and it is full
time that all persons included in the mascu
line gender, anil “possessive ease,’’ were re- 1
Minded of lb* fact, and learn »o govern
themselves accordingly.
Women are advisee by gentlemen of their
duties aa wife and mother ; they presume to
advise them of their household affairs, of
the right course to take iu governing the.r
children and domestics, and one would ima
gine that instead of loving, refined, intelli
gent Women, we are all a race of idiots or
boarders from ibe insane asylum
Now, l would like to save those advisers
change places with women for a abort time,
and show ua now much the world would he
benefitted * by the change. I would like
them to try the pleasures of housekeeping
for a week, that we might see ibe workings
of the domestic machinery under their mas
culine supervision. I honestly believe that
aU the “nicest” words in the dictionary
would be used in the most emphatic manner
before the first day was over.
The whole tiuth is plain to perceive; wo
men have naturally fallen into the places
which they are best calculated to fill; tbetr
.auent forbearance with the whim* of men ;
their tenderness with the suffering should
awaken all of the sympathies ol the strong
er sex, and should teach them in the most
eloqueut and touching language of the great
love which be should possess to enable her
to bear the heavy burden which ba( beea
laid upon her.
No : it is not advice that wives want, bat
sympathy. Never mind if yoa do think
(old or young husbands) that the ilia oi
which the complains are small and trivial,
compared with the troubles which you have
to content with in these our dark financial
days. Her troubles are as grest to her ; and
oh, so wearing. It is the small, petty
troubles of life which wear out tbe lives of so
many women, and as tha com tact dropping
of water will wear away a atone, so will the
small every day troubles of life tell severely
upon a woman’s health and spirits.

A* Italian Exhibition.
One night last year, write* a correspond
ent, I was ia Milan, and wondering bow to
ataose myself, when my attention was called
to a show of trained dog* and monkeys in a
little theater close in the shadow of the great
cathedral, famous throughout toe world.
As I paid my two franos for admission, 1
was shown into the most select part of tha
bouse—by no means over nice—and received
a bill, from which I learned more by the
woodcuts than by the text, a choice Italian.
Tho performance was a funny one, and the
performer* were a man, a goat, a poay, half
a dote a dogs, sad the same number of mon
key a.
1 never before knew how much a dog
could learn in the way of tricks that were
difficult for men. A ring with sawdust 'was
formed upon the stags, and the poay was
mad- to gallop around in exaotly the manner
of the circus. A dog—a white poodle of the
Venetian origin—was plaoed upon the saddle
and performed Bo*t of the feats of toe cir
cus riders. He jumped through tho paper
covered hoops, over banners, and so on
through the usual bill of fare, not excepting
the difficult achievement of "passing the
bridge.” The goat balanced himself upon
several glass bottles, with the assistance ol
bis manager, fired a pistol with bia south,
walked on hia hind feet and tuned aumer
aanlts.
The doge danced e quadrille—keeping ell
the while on their hind lege, bet not lolTow

A Field et Blood.
The soil of Blsndensburg, Maryland, baa
a bloody record. It haa beeo the scene of
many a refined murder in days past. One j
whi vi-us the place now will find the field
green with verdure, which a few years since
wa« trampled by the feet of men arrayed in
deadly host'iit*. Here, on a beautiful grass
plot, surrounded by tree*, forms made after
the image of God came to insult nature and ‘
defy heaven.
In 1814, Edward Hopkins was killed here
in a duel. This seems to have been the firat
of there fashionable murders on this dueling
ground.
In 181!), A. T. Mason, a United States
senator from Virginia, fought with his sis
ter’s husband, John McCarty, here. McCarty J
was averse to fighting, and thought there<
was no necessity for it; but Mason would '
fight. McCarty named muskets, loaded with
buckshot, and so close together that tbey
would touch heads if they fell on their faces
This was changed by the seconds b loading
with bullets, and taking twelve feet as the
distance. Mason was killed instantly, and
MeOarty, who had his collar-bone broken,
still lives with Mason’s sister in Georgetown.
His hair turned white, soon after, so as to'
cause comment. He has since been solicited
to act as second in a duel, but Jeclined, in j
accordance with a pledge made to bis wifi,
soon after killing her brother.
In 1820, Commodore Decatur was killed j
here in a duel, by Commodore Barron. At
the first fire, both fell forward, and lay with j
their heads within ten feet of each other; and
as each supposed himself mortally wounded, i
each fuily and freely forgave the other, i
still lying od the ground. Decatar expired
in a few days, but Barron eventually re- .
covered.
In 1883, two strangers, named Lega and
Sega, appeared here and fought and Sega
was mnantly killed. The neighbors only
learned this much of their names from the ,
marks on the gloves on the ground. 1 ega
was not hurt.
In 1822, Midshipman Loke was killed here
in a duel with a clerk of the treasury de
partment, named Gibson. The latter was
not hurt.
In 1826, Henry Clay fought his second
duel with John Randolph, just across the
Potomac, as Randolph preferred to die, if at
all, on Virginia soil. The latter received City’s
shot and then fired his pistol in the sir. This
was in accordance with a declaration made
to Mr. Benton, who spoke to Randolph of a
call the evening before, on Mrs. Clav, and
alluded to the quiet sleep of her child and
the noose of the mother. Randolph quickly
replied,
“1 shall do nothing to disturb the sleep of
the child or the repose of tbe mother.”
Qen. Jessup was Clay’s second. When
Randolph fired, he remarked,
**I do not ihoot at you, Mr. Clay, and ex
tending his hand, advanced towards Mr. Clay,
who rushed to meet him. Randolph showed
Clay where the ball struck his coat, and said,
facetiously,
“Mr. Clay, yon owe me a coat.”
“Thank God the debt is no greater," re
plied Clay.
Tbay were friend* erer after;
| In 1882, Martin waa killed here by Carr.
Their first names were not remembered, as
they were from the Sooth.
In 1833, Mr. Key—son of Prank Key, and
i brother of Barton Key, of the Siokles no
toriety—met Mr. Sherborn and Sherborn
•aid—
“Mr. Key, I hare no desire to kill yon.'*
“No matter,** said Key, “I came to kill
you.’’
“Very well, then,” said Sherborn, “I will
| kill yon,’* and he did.
i In 1846, a lawyer named Jones, fought
I with and killed a Ur. Johnson,
In 1851, R A. Boole and A. J. Dallas * ad
a hostile meeting here. Dallas was shot in

Since for Satan on Fish.—Take yolk of
two eggs, boiled hard, inaeh them with a
mustard spoonful of mustard, a little black
pepper, a little salt, three tablespooosful of
salad oil, and three of vinegar. A table
spoonful of catsup would improve it for
many.
II >iled PoTarots.—Wash, but do not cut
them , put them in boiling water, having
only a small quantity more than enough to
cover them, put sail in, say a great spoonful
to half s pailful of potatoes; boil them mo
derately ; when nearly done, let them sim
mer slowly, and aheu cooked, (as u$ discov
ered, not by tbeir cracking, hut by a fork,)
pour off the water, and let them stand till
dry, on or 'ear tbs stove. Medium sited
polutcee, when young, will oook in from
twenty to thirty minutes; waen old, they
require longer time. When peeled, they
boil rnuoh quicker, from twenty to thirty
minutes usually. Old potatoes In ike spring
are improved ny soaking in water all night.

when wanted extra nice, to eat with slewed
: oysters, or soups beat uU light with a fork,
uear or on the stove ; the great charm being
to serve tnera hot. Another nice way, is to
put them on a tin plate, or dish, (after pre
pared as above,) and place io tbs oven to
brown on top, then serve, opening the oen
tre, and ad -mg a piece of butter as you send
to the table.
