A. Method of Reforming Husbands Who Go Down Town Every Night. I'li« Shameful Manner In Which a Timid little Creature Has Been Treated by Her Cruel Spouse. A. Specimen of Ills IJctrd-Heartedness --The Philosophic Remedy B lie Is Advised to Resort to. A young lady came to ran the other day md asked me to give her some advice. She was married, had a two-year-old child, and tier experience in matrimony stretched icross the wide and weary space of four fears. 1 got at the core of her infelicity in less than two minutes; her husband wouldn't stay at home nights. She told me the whole story through her tears, and I am afraid she thought me ter ribly heartless, I laughed so joliiiy and bo cruelly at everything she said. I think from her statement that she wanted me to believe that her husband had a doorknob with ventricles in its interior and arteries leading into and out of it for the circulation of ice water stowed away under the ribs of his left side, and that the doorknob was the least impressionable thing in existence this side of a granite quarry. Sho told me all about him as far as his hesperal conduct was concerned. "He seems never satisfied," she said, "unless iie : s out rambling the streets with other rowdies like himseli, or Is into some mean and miserable mischief." She gave him a pedigree as long as the Spanish infanta's list of titles, and if th re Is anything soulless under the sun that she didn't compare him with it, it has slipped my memory. C And all because he forsook th« comforts of his home at night and looked for happi ness and an agroeabie way of murdering time down town. He gave her the old racket. One night it was lodge; next night it was business: another night it was see ing a friend off on the 9 o'clock train; then there was the sick man to sit up with, and again it was a committee meeting of some kind or other. There was a plausible little excuse for his absence from home until la o'clock every night. 1 could see right away that he had eiven the delicate little creature a delightful whirl, and I made up my mind before she had reached her second lamentation that her husband was carrying 53.000 insurance on his life just for the sake of the lodge nights, committee meetings, sick brothers fiinl things of that kind which it furnished him with. If a newspaper had caught hold of her Btory and printed it in all its harrowing de tails, that man would have, been held up to the public gaze as the rankest scoundrel that ever obtained a marriage license. Why, it seems that on one occasion he remained out until 1:45 a. m., and then gave the excuse that there was a big lire down town, and as he stopped to tak« it in he missed the last car and was obliged to wait for the "owl." She looked in the paper next day and COtildnt lind any fire at all reported; on the contrary, there was a small item down in one corner of the paper settimr forth the startling fact that the lire department had not been disturbed by an alarm for four days. The only explanation he vouchsafed was to call the paper a liar, and to say they were probably holding the item back for their weekly edition. When she tried to argue the improbabil ity of SOCh an action he shut her op by de claring that women were the oomleiiindest tools the Lord ever put brealh tuto, and the mau who tried to explain anything to ane of them ought to be carried straightway to a dime museum and put in the same cage with the Aztec children. She pave this as a sample of his treat ment, and I present it to the reader as a lair specimen of the set-tos they seem to have in that small iamily. It would not be difficult for any unpreju diced jury to arrive at the conclusion that this little lady had been and was still deal ing with a villain. !She cthhl copiously as she reeled off her woes to me, and said that was the way she cried when her husband was out at night. I came pivtty near pitying her, but 1 shut down my sympathy valve and gave tho sub ject about four minutes' consideration. 1 looked at it from both standpoints — from its down-town aspect and it< family circle phases — and then 1 came to a con clusion. 1 told her to dry her tears and go home, pull her chewing gum off the mantel-piece and proceed to mind her own business in the way she was wont to do before she be came acquainted with marital misery. "Uon't say another word to him about going down town any more," 1 said. "Let him go. with a big (I-O." "That's just whafll suit him," said the little lady. "11 I let him go he"ll never gome home at iIL" "Then let him stay away," I told her. "Encourage him to stay away. Send some body down town to meet him on his road home who will prevail upon him to turn back." She couldn't understand tin's and I conjdn't make her understand it. She was utraid she might lose- bet night hawk and, as she remarked, a biid ol that kind, even in the hand, was worth two in the brush. I told her. though, that I was a philoso pher, and, like all philosophers, the les< intelligible my advice the better the chances of Uaving it effect some good. She at last consented to try mv remedy on her husband, and this is the treatment 1 recommended—it will apply to all husbands who are fond of going down town alter supper: W hen he goes out in the morning never ask him to hurry home. Wlici! he appears for supper have it all ready for him. and rush him through it as quickly as possible. The moment he rises from the table get his hat and coat, help him rapidly on with the former, and tell him that if he make> haste he may catch the car that is just pass- Ing. Should he try to explain that it is lodge night, or that they are "taking stock at the Bto'e." hush him up and tell him to loso no time in getting to his destination. If h« remarks that he will be home at 10. ask him as a favor not to come until n ::..•. as you expect company and they may re main late. When he does come home pay do atten tion to or take no interest in him. Devote yourself ardently to getting him out of the bouse, but never make any fuss about his return. After a night or two you may send his supper down to the office with a nice, lov ing little note saying that you know that he will appreciate the surprise and the sup per, — but your idea is to save him time, trouble md car-fare. In a week you may add another kindness, insist on his getting a room down town, which will spare him the inconvenience of riding home in the late cars, and say that you will be satisfied if ho only spends a few hours at home oj Sunday. Keep this kind of thing going. Do your utmost to make his down-town life pleas ant. Heap love and kindness upon him, but continue to encourage his night ram bles. • - If he says anything about home, tell him home is a popular delusion that John How ard Payne and his silly sentimentality are responsible for. '■:■. ■?■' . / : Don't let him hang around home at all; hustle him out good-naturedly every time he comes in; j sweetly invite him to keep aloof from it: try and bind him with a chain of roses to his down-town haunts and down-town friends. Do this straight along instead of sitting sniffling in a corner and j painting your eyes red with grief every time he happens to be away from you. Do it for a month, and do it as herein presciibed. and uuless your husband Is a policeman, or draws a salary as your father's son-in-law, he will sud denly become so attached to his home that neither poker game, wrestling match nor leg show can lure him forty feet from his own front door.

Mrs. Langtry is - coming out in a new dramatic lino, and on one occasion only is going to impersonate that Helen of Troy who caused so much trouble to Mennlaus and his friends.

There is more money now than ever before, and more reckless gambling, both in cards and speculation, is indulged in by a greater number of men than ever before.

Chicago where more money changes hands every twenty-four hours than is won and lost in all the public faro banks in a month. "It was at one of these private games In a swell hotel that a very well-known mer chant blew in 125. 000 in a half a dozen sit tings less than four months ago, and sent more good money after it in the hope of winning It back. This party was obliged to sell his business to obtain the shekels with which to pay his debts of honor and he is now about 'broke.' In every one of the large down-town hotels from two to a dozen ! private poker games are running nightly, ! and at one caravansary near the board of ! trade a select coterie of millionaires has de- ! voted two or three hours a day to a study j of the history ol the four Mags and the ; four queens for five years at least, and per- | haps longer. Now and then a member of the party dies, goes to Europe, takes a j vacation or draws out permanently, but the place is quickly tilled and the BUM goes on. Two or three tough old stagers are at their post, as regularly as the sun rises and sets. They are very, very rich, and play for the excitement and sociability of the thin::. not caring particularly whether they win or lose. They settle monthly and there is not usually a very large balance either way. though checks running up into live figures sometimes pass around. There is more or , less quiet gambling at a majority of the ' clubs, though to specify the clubs would bo ! to invite indignant denials.

BY MERE AOOIDEHT. In her miserable attic room Ethel Dare, a young girl of 17, was preparing to go to her day's work. The air was white with frost and everything ehe touched seemed to turn to ice. She had burned her last lump of coal the night before, and consequently could not have any fire. She went to the cupboard — nothing there; she searched .everywhere, and finally found a crust of bread. This she tried to eat in the vain hope that it would allay the gnawing hunger.

She was employed at one of the large dry good* stores where, every Saturday night, she was handed an envelojH* containing just tLM) as a remuneration for her life of toll and hardship. Six months before her mother had died, and, as Ethel had no money, she had been compelled to apply to the authorities for a burial by the city, where -he and the woman from whom .she rented were the only mourners. Mrs. Dare. In her girlhood, had been the only daughter of a very wealthy wholesale merchant, mid was petted and spoiled by her only brother, but she had. against her father's wishes, married a worthless, profli gate fellow, and he had disowned her. bue soon became a widow, and appealed to her father for assi.-tauce. which was ignobly 1 in the harsh ai.J'iuel tei ins that • vlie h«d made her bed. now h t her lie in it." She nerer wrote again, but strove to work for her little girl and herself and keep the wolf from the door. On her death bed slie had told her daughter the v. hole t«d t-tory, and implored her never to marry a drunkard. Ethel had. very unfortunately for one in her station of lif.\ inherited her mothers great beauty, consisting of laree blue eyes, golden hair and jierfect features. She had meanwhile reached the store, and after an interminably long day of dull monotony and dreary work prepared to re turn to her miserable attic • ♦ * ♦ ♦ It was a cold, bitter night in inidwintpr; the streets of New \ ork were one sheet of Know and ice. and more than one warmly clad person as I hey turned the corner and faced the wind. si<*et and snow hurried along, grasping their wraps more thfhtly about them and < ast one sympathetic thought for the poor unfortunates who had no place to go as a scene of a cheerful wife, warm supper and pleasant fireside passed ' before their gaze. The people were hurrying or rather slid ing tioag, and as it was an utter impossi bi. y to walk, for after one thought they had a good foothold and could manure to maintain their equilibrium there would be an ignominious la!! of dignity, as, with an ejaculation of "Oh, my," they would go slipping down. hi front of one of the elegant bouses on Fifth avenue there was a place unusually slip|*M y. where at least a dozeu that night had fallen. A little dark-robed ligure. In which we recoirnize our friend Ethel, made her appearance, and in her haste stepped right on the slippery spot which was fol lowed by a painful fall. With a low moan of pain she dragged herself to the step. thinking she was only jarred and f would recover herself and then resume her jour ney. A sudden twinge of pain from her ankle caused her very lips to turn white. "Oh, my ankle!" Everything wm grow ing dark before her. She tried to raise her self, causing another twinge from her an kle, which made her fall back — senseless. She had fainted. A large, portly man, enveloped in a huge overcoat, fur mittens, arctic rubber* — in fact, everything equivalent to comfort — stopped suddenly as he started to ascend the steps. "My! what is this".' " He hastily gathered her up In his strong arms, irave a loud, ringing peal to the door bell, which brought several servant* run ning to the door, strode through the hall, np the wide staircase and into his wife's sitting-room, and laid his burden on the kmnse. His wife, like the good, dear, sensible, motherly woman she was, never stopped to asked questions and give way to curiosity (a woman's failing), but proceeded to ad minister the needed restoratives. Her efforts were soon rewarded by a long Bgh issuing from the lips of the patient After a quivering of the eyelids the large blue eyes opened, looking won deringly around at the grandeur such as she had often dreamed of but never seen. The man at her side had been looking in tently at her from the first, evidently in a biown study, from the knit brow and thoughtful eye: but when she oj>ened her eyes he started up. exclaiming: "How like my sister Ethel!" Ethel attempted to raise herself, but she fell back on the lounge with a cry of anguish. •\Mv poor child! what is it?" "My ankle. I think, is sprained." After the pain had somewhat subsided she said: "Will you be kind enough to tell me how 1 came here? 1 remember fainting while emu i im home from work." "Never mind now. my child.*' The doc tor who had been sent for now arrived. He was the typical rosy-faced, good-natured doctor, and soon had her ankle mure com fortable, taking his leave with Uie injunc tion "that the utmost care must be taken of her.' 1 and that he "would bring her around all richt in a couple of wee fc>. " After the doctor's exit "mine host" ex plained to Ethel's satisfaction how he had found her lying on the steps. He could not look at her without betraying the deep est emotion. "My child, have you any friends or rela tives who will be anxious about you, to whom 1 miirht send word?" "Alas, I have no friends. I am only a poor orphan, with' no one in the wide, wide world to care for me. Mamma died six months ago," and the sweet blue eyes filled with tears. A deep shade of pity overspread the man's face. "Tell me," anxiously and breathlessly, "who was your mother? what was her maiden nam r* "I do not think 1 ought totelL for erand papa disowned her because she married against his will, and be is living some place in New York, and he probably would not care to to have it spoken of, for mamma said he was very proud."

" A warm blush of pride swept over Eth el's face as she remembered her grand father's cruel treatment of her sainted mother, for even the most abject poverty could not suppress her pride, and she foi a time refused, but at last paw in and told him her mother's whole sad story.

Whatever the faculty uiav say on the point of its In jurious qualities, however much the clergy may point out the possioility of its leading to Intemperance, the fact remains that a large proportion of the world uses tobacco in some form or other. The Chinese, accord ing to their accustomed vanity, pretend to have been acquainted for many aces with tobacco. But we must remember that in the earliest written oriental tales which have comedown to vs — Arabian Nights' En tertainments— thero is no allusion to the custom of smoking, and that Sir Walter Italeigh lit the first pipe smoked out of America. In spite of all there has been said against it by fervid anU-tobaccoukts, pure tobacco is an excellent remedial agent; but it must be absolutely pure. No poisonous decoc tions must eat into its substance or change its nature. Used in a proper way, to re lieve neuralgic pains, or applied hi various affections, under the advice of a skillful physician, it Is a valuable medicine. The adulteration of tobacco Is very common, both in this country and abroad, arises from two considerations. The pure, natural leaf, in its yellow hue, is undoubt edly the finest tobacco in the market. But so many accident* conspire to render the finest leaves scarce that even the natural leaf itself is lintnitated. Coarse leaves is bleached by the use of chlorine to bright yellow color of the natural leaf, and sulph urid acid, properly diluted, is used to make the little "freckles,** which are supposed by connoisseurs to indicate a superior quality of leaf But the "natural leaf," somehow doesn't seem to suit the taste of the average chewer of tobacco. lie asks a certain degree of sweetness in his plug. To (ill this bill aud create a special tlavor which shall give a kind of identity to a particular brand, and cause it to be eagerly sought tor; is tho object of the manufacturer. '-> ■ . When the bundles of steamed leaves are fully dried they are ready for the applica tion of the mixture of syrup and licorice, which imparts to the chewing tobacco of commerce its sweetness and flavor. The leaves must be as dry as bone when they are subjected to this licorice bath, for the least dampness will render them white with mould in a few hours. This mould is re moved (one of the adulterations) by a dip into diluted muriatic add, and In too many cases forms part of the solid cake a better quality. The heat of the mixture causes the pores of the leaf to expand, and the sweet syrup, penetrating every fibre, im pregnates it thoroughly. From the vat the dripping bundles are carried oat on the flat roof of the factory and exposed to the sun, for one day's sunshine is worth more than can be told in the manufacture. After this i the leaves are taken into a drying room, where the thermometer during the day is at 00 degrees. At night the whole power of the furnace is turned, and the heat is so in tense that in the morning the room has to be cooled before the operators can enter It. When the tobacco has, under this powerful beat, become perfectly dry, the adulterator gets In his work. I One factory sprinkles it with New Eng land rum, another uses Jamaica rum. ■ third moistens it with the rankest corn whisky he can find, and each brand has' its own peculiar essential oil. Some use fennel others ginseng, while the acrid sumach, abounding in tannin, cheap and plenty, , gives that peculiar burning of the tongue which characterizes the "fine cut," As tringent barks, worm-wood, the refuse of the cinchona, and others, give the bitter taste which some consumers like, and the twist or "neirro head." which Is largely ex ported to tropical climates, gets a special absorption. We have heretofore published the state ment of Mr. Cooper, revenee collector of North Carolina, himself a large tobacco manufacturer, stating that tonqua bean and wintergreen were also largely used in adul terating tobacco, both of which are deadly poisons, and that he knew of a negro who, having drank a wineglassfuiof the mixture, died in half an hour. If these things be true of the ordinary chewing tobacco, what can we say of the smoking article, where' sticks and sterns and dirt and all uncleanllness go to make up the cigar? Where an end ought to show the wrinkled edge of a pure leaf, it shows a front like that of a composite bit of marble. A true tobacco cigar is tine in grain and free from stems. The wrapper is nothing In a cigar; the filling is everything. No leaf is worthless for the manufacture of one or another of the innumerable brands between the golden chaff with which the millionaire fills his merchaum and the la borer his cuddy. Almost the only chemic ally pure tobacco is that which the planter dries for himself, spreads on the cotton sheet in the garret, and sends little Tommy to bring him a bunch — crumbling it be tween his fingers to fill his pipe. But t!'is simplicity doesn't please. The public would r ather be poisoned. .lime. Paul's Mode off Life. Court Journal.
