They Met By Chance.
A STORY OF TRIE LOVE.
Emmet Wejland was a child of the
sunnr South. He wus hundsume arid
winning, with a clear olive skin.brilliant
drtrk eyes, and n expressive, mobile
moutb. His lithe, graceful figure gave
promise of great strength when fully de
veloped ; for as yet be was a mere youth
of eighteen, ultho' within a few months
of finishing his collegiate course.
During his four year's residence in
the city of his 'Alma Mater he bad been
introduced to many beautiful young
ladies, some of tbern so brim-full of
fun end romance that many a glance
from their bright eyes bud been aimed
at him ; but he seemed impervious to
their attractions.
' One morning, however, at he was
walking hastily along, being a little Inter
than usual, be saw a girl of such won
derful loveliness, that he nlruost involun
tarily turned to obtain a second took at
her.
The same feeling had evidently ac
tuated her. for she was looking back al
so, and their eyes met. Such wonderful
depths of bewildering blue they were,
that Emmet felt for a moment as though
it might be a glimpse of Heaven's own
azure; but the while lids drooped in con
fusion beneath his carnest,admiring gaze
and in another moment she entered a tiny
cottage, conspicuous among the; row of
similar one for its exquisite neatness.
It was their flrtt meeting but not their
last. For a while it was by accident that
the pretty creature was aither going to
or from her bumble home when it was
the hear for the young student to past
that way ; but after a time they became
so accustomed to see each other.that one
morning Emmet - unconsciously lifted
bis bat aa though to an acquaintance,
and bis salutation was answer by a
smile and a shy blush.
Then be spoke to her. She looked at
him her bright, earnest eyes intent with
an expression aa though she waa reading
his very tool then she laid a finger up
on her delicately-curved coral-red tips,
book hex bead, and sighed. '
It came to bim then like a - flash of
sudden pain that this girl, with face
like Raphael's Madonna, and a foroa aa
graceful in ita airy lightness at) a acolp
tared Diana, was doomed to per) alaai
silence. She waa ahat est from all
aouod ef tpeeci at effectual! at though
Istaiarad ia a eTc. . ,
Emmet, when a child, had been often
taken by bis mother to an asylum for
Hie deaf and dumb, where an aunt bad
been placed to acquire their peculiar lan
guage of signs. He bad taken great
pains to learn it at the time, and could
carry on quite a conversation with bis
afflicted relative, and made himself so
dear to her by bis willingness to devote
time to her entertainment, which child
ren generally bestow upon their play,
that she chose to make her home with
bis mother after leaving the asy!um,aad
upon ber death it was found that Emmet
had been left heir to her large fortune. -
This knowledge served him in good
stead of speech now. It was beautiful
to watch the change which passed over
the sensitive face, as he talked with ber
in dumb show. He even learned her
simple history. : The only child of a
widowed mother, who earned their liv
ing by her needle. She was not born
deaf, and had only lost her speech from
forgetting, through deafaess, the sound
of words, and from disliking to give ut
terance to even the shortest sentence
because os feeling that it would be a
hock to a sensitive ear to listen to a
voice which could no longer be modu
lated to the proper pitch by the speaker.
All had been caused by scarlet fever.
Strange to say, this discovery, instead
of destroying the girl's attractions for
the impressible young man, forged an
other link in his fancy for her, and it
grew at last to be a subject of remark
in the place, and at last slander, with its
venomous tongue, assailed poor Flora,
and people began to look askance at her.
The pretty creature had never exper
ienced cold looks and alights before, and,
though unconscious of the cause, it oc
casioned a cloud upon her new-born
happiness. At last it became so marked
that ahe called ber mother's attention to
L Once that wat nroused, it - was not
many hours before the patient hard
working woman had still another pang
added to her life's sorrows in the know
ledge that while she had been t fatally
oblivious to Flora's dawning woman
hood, I he child had beon suffered to drift
in ber unsuspecting innocence into an
acquaintance which she feared would
cast a blight over her young life to which
ber bodily affliction would be nothing.
Burning with indignation, she sought
Emmet at his boarding-house, and asked
for an interview. He came into the
room, looking so free from anything
evil in his bright young manhood, and
withal so handsome and debonnair, with
that indescribable air of high breeding
which characterizes his class, that the
poor woman who bad risen to meet him
and, overwhelm with reproaches, sank
down into a chair and cried bitterly.
Emmet went to her kiudly.
"Did you send for me,my good woman
Can I be of any service to you ?" invol
untarily hit purse was in his hand and
opened. He evidently thought she need
ed help.
With a gesture of dignity the sorrow
ing mother rose and put aside the prof
fered sum.
"It is not money. It is my child I Ob
sir, how could you step down out of
your happy, noble sphere and blight my
already afflicted girl. Until she saw you
she had a heart as light as air, and the
glance of her eye had a music of its own
to me. Now" She could say no more.
Emmett stood for a moment haughtily
erect. A clear conscience flashing ita
record out of his fiery eyes. But his in
dignation died away aa he heard the
mother's anguished sobs, aud he said gen-
tly: .
"If you wilt tell me In what way I
have done harm to poor little Flora I will
do my beat to atone. Dry your tears,
my good woman, and tell me an intelli
gible story. At present I ant at a lose
to understand you."
Truth spoke in the gentle bat Ira
tones of bis voice, and the bewildered
mother did ber best to obey bim She
dried ber eyes and told him of the malic
ious scandals which had been set afloat,
and that even anautpiciout Flora bad no
ticed the changed deportment uf people
who had ever before been studiously
kind to her adding:
"My poor girl's infirmity, air, has al
ways made strangers take notice of ber,
seeing, too, that she was so pretty like.
So you nuat not think aba has been
brought p in a light way because she
makes friends with a stranger."
"Heaven forbid that I shoo Id tbink
anything of Flore, but that she is as pretty
at a flower and aa pure as a dew drop,"
waa the young maa'a fervent answer,
After a few momenta of deep thought.
he continued, "1 had ne Idea that Mrs.
Orundy would make a scandal oat of my
pleasant walks with as interesting a child
aa I eonddamd bar. Bat Mrs. Qraod
Subscription
shall be appeased 1 Madam," turning to
Mrs. Martin and speaking seriously and
solemnly, "I am a mere boy, full young
to marry, but I can offer your child a
loving heart which holds her as its choic
est treasure. I have no near relative to
make exceptions to my choice, and 1 am
rich, With your consent, Flora shall be
my wife before another day's sun shall
mature another day's gossip about her.
Will you give her to me f"
Fond as sbe was of her child the moth
er hesitated. It seemed incredible that
this beautiful, rich young man should
mean to unite bis whole future life with
such an unsuitable svUe. The yoang
man read her thoughts. A smile lit his
dark face.
"Do not fear. I ieee Flora, and will
make her happy I '
So it was that Emmet Weylasd found
the beautiful bride about whom artists
raved and sculptors begged for a cast of
her lovely face when he took ber to It
aly a few years after, and I will tell Jroa
a pleasant bit of news. Sbe is no longer
deaf, and of course with her hearing aha
has recovered the use of ber speech. At
first the syllables came slowly .boarse and
hesitating ; but now as the silvery voice
gives utterance to the brilliant tbougbta
of the red ued nd elegant woman who
has been received in the most cultivated
circles as an acquisition to their charmed
numbers, none would suspect that the
seal of silence bad rested for long years
upon those eloquent iips.
Wealth was the "genii" which gave
them their "open sesame "-calling to
ber relief those eminent auritts whose
long and loving labor in the cause ef
their favorite science, made them skilled
to determine whether the ease was
within their reach or not. " ; ;;-
Emmelt Weyland haa reason (0 btas
the chance which led the afllicted mother
to mate ber touching appenl M bim up
on that never-to-be-forgotten day when
he made the sudden resolve to turn bis
Flora's night of sorrow into love's efful
gent day.
Loving and beloved the noble young
pair have truly a foretaste of Heaven's
purest joy. For ibej who are accounted
worthy to attain to the highest joys of
that Home of the Blest, must be those
who love much.
The Eeliable Man.
Of all the qualities that combine to
form a good character, there Is net one
more important than reliability. Most
emphatically is this true of the character
of a good business man. The word itsel f
embraces both truth and honesty, and
the reliable man must necessarily be
truthful and honest. We see so much
all around us that exhibits the absence
of this crowning quality that we are
tempted, in our bilious moods, to deny
its very existence. But there are, never
theless reliable men, mea to be depended
upon, to be trusted, in whom yon may
repose confidence, whose word is aa good
as their bond and whose promise is per
formance. If any one of yeu know
such a man make him yonr friend. You
can only do so, however, by assimilating
bis character.
The reliable man Is a man of good
judgment. He does not jump at con
clutiont. He ia not a frivolous man.
He is thoughtful Be turns over a sub
ject ia bis mind and looks at it all
around. ' He is not a partial or one-tided
man. He sees through a thing. He ia
apt to be a very reticent man. He doea
not hare to talk a great deal Ue ie a
moderate man, notonly in habits of body
but also of mind. He is not a passionate
man, if so by nature, he has overcome It
by grace. He la a aincere man, sot a
plotter or schemer. Ha does not prom
Ite rashly. What he saya ia relied on.
He ia a trustworthy man. You feel safe
wiih'yorr frt-.rty or the administration
of affaire in hia hands. He is a watch
ful, vigilant man. Tu feel seeara with
in hie protection. He ia a brave man, (or
his conclusions are logically deduced
from the sure basis of train and ha does
not fear to maintain them. Be ia a good
man, for no oneean be thoroughly honest
and truthful withoat being good. Is
such a quality attainable f Most assared
ly so. It Is sot born, It ia made. Char
acter may be formed, ef cesrse then ita
component parts may be molded to that
formation. PtrOand Price Currmi.
Character. , ,
Cfcarsstter is so much more than wealth
or knowledge, fame or power, that it Is
the measure of (aa man. Wbea a man
is placed ia a prominent position of any
aort whatever, we eay at onea, "What it

it the momentous question that involves
all. All others are secondary. Wealth,
knowledge, fame and power, are enoat
desirable accessions for a good man; but
otherwise they add atrengb In a wrung
direction. I wonder If the young oven
and boys In our land realize that charac
ter if the most Important capital ia any
and all buslneaa transactions. If a man
of a iecae buaineas it looking for a part
air or employee, what doe he require
first and mot of all f Aa honest man or
boy. Wealth and position, with Ibis
first requisite, will be no detraction, but
nothing withoat it.
What pillars are la a building, what
the foundation ia, and the corner-stonta
thereof, so also is a good character to a
man or a woman, to a boy or a girl.
The wise man said, "A goad name is
rather to be chosen than riches," and he
had no lack of wealth. Remember, boya
and Jt will harm none to remember

A Touching Story.
A HBBOIC JAPAN BSE WOMAN.
A curious and touching story is told
of a brave, high-spirited girl, daughter
of one of the moat distinguished of Sal
go's generals, who waa found after the
last battle was over . lying dead in the
moat of the castle with the chaitlv head .
Of her father lu he right hand, and in
the left the deadly knifu with which she
had taken her own life. She was attir
ed in garments of the richest and most
expensive quality, and had evidently
undertaken the dreadful last and highest
duty enjoined Uon her by her hopeless
parent with the most lofty tense of Its
overwhelming importance and an un
shrinking faith in its absolute necessity,
if her father's honor and name were to
remain unsullied in tite recollections of
men. The steady hand and firm pur
pose that Siicjiflced her father, failed not
when she drove tbe knife into her own
heart, or stood hrAvely tap to receive its
deadly thrust from a retainer's hand.
Such an exhibition of lofty courage,
splendid spirit of self-sacrifice, and a
stern sense of duty lights up the terrible
shadows of that fierce contest about the
monastery moat with a glory which time
can never dim. The unknown Japanese
lady has won a place among the real
heroes of the world. It wus of such
stuff that the leaders of the fatal insur
rection were made. It is a pity that so
many gallant and heroic men fell In eucli
a hopeless contest, for they were of tbe
very best blood in Japan, and struggled
almost from the first against dishearten
ing odds. . . . , ... ,

Thsse most terrible of pains arise front
the veins being to full of blood that they
swell out, preas againat the large nervea,
and thus impede tbe circulation of lite
vital fluid. In smaller nerves the disten
sion produces neuralgia, which is literal
ly "nerve-ache." The cause of this on
nsaal fullness of the veint it, that tha
blood is so impure, to thick, so full of
disease, that it cannot flow by Natures'
ordinary agenciea. In proportion' SaV.-it
