Give me a call. S. L, MOORE. Tarboro', 10, 1374. tf. FRIDAY, : ! : : SEPT. 18. 1874 J0H AND I. Come, Joht said I, cheerfully, it really ia time to go : if you stay any longer. I tshall be afraid to come down anif lock the door after My fiiitori rose a proceeding that always reminded me of the genius emerging, irom tne copper Tessei, as lio meagRr feet three and stood looking reproachfully down upon me. You aro in a great hurry to get rid of me,' he replied. Now I didn't agree with him, for he had made his usual call of two hours and a half; having, in country phraae, taken to 'sitting up with me to literally that 1 was frequent ly at my wit's end to suppress the yawn that 1 knew would bring a troop rushing after it. He was a fine, manlylookinc fellow, this John Oranford, old for his age which was the rather boy ish period of twenty two and every way worthy ot being loved. Uut I didn't love him. I was seven years his senior; and when, instead of letting the worm of concealment prey on his damask cheek, he ven tured to tell his love for my mature self, I remorselessly seized an Eng lish Prayer-book, and pointed sternly to the clause, A man may not marry his grandmother.' That was three years ago; and I added, encouragingly, Besides, John, you are a child, and don't know your own mind.' if a man of nineteen doesn't know his own mind,' remonstrated uy lover, 4 1 would like to know who should. But Ijwill wait for you seren years, if you say so fourteen, as Jacob did for Rachel' You forget,' I replied, laughing at his way of mending matters, that a woman does not, like wine, improve with age. Buc seriously, Jonn, this is absurd; you are a nice boy, and I like you but my feel ings toward you are more like those of a mother than a wife.' The boy's eyes flashed indignant ly; and lxe I oould divine his .j ' . . . . ... intention no naa lined me from the Ipol where XstPfxl; and carried me, infant fashion, to tho Enf, nt fK other end of the room. I could almost find it in my heart to shake you !, he muttered, as he set me down with emphasis. This was rather like the court ship of William of Normandy, and matters promised to be quite excits ing. Don't do that again,' eaid I, with diginity, when 1 had recovered my breath. Will you marry me?' asked John, somwhat threateningly. 4 Not just at present,' I replied. The great, handsome fellow,' I thought, as he paced the floor restleessly, 'why couldn't he fall in love with some girl of fifteen, ins tead of setting his affections on an old maid like me ? I don't want the boy on my hands, and I won't haye him V As to you being twentysix,' pursued John, in answer to my thoughts, 'you say it's down in the family Bible, and I suppose it must be so; but no one would believe it; and I don't care if you're forty. You look like a girl of sixteen, and you are the only woman I shall ever love.' Oh, John, John ! at least five millions of men have said that same thing before in every known lan guage. Nevertheless when you fairly break down and cry, I 'relent for I am disgracefully soft-hearted and weakly promise then and there that I will either keep my own name or take yours. For love is a very dog in the manger, and John look ed radiant at this concession. It was a comfort to know that if he could not gather the flower himself, no one else would. A sort of family shipwreck waf ted John to my threshold. Our own household was sadly broken up, and I found myself comparative ly young in years, with a half-invalid father, a large house and very little money. What more natural than to take boarders ? And among the first were Mr. Cranford, and his son, and sister, who had just been wrecked themselves by the death of the wife and mother in a foreign land one of these sudden, unexpacted deaths that leave the survivors in a dazed condition, be cause it is so difficult to imagine the gay worldling who has been called hence in another state of being. M. Cranford was one of my ad mirations from the first. Tall, pale, with dark hair and eyes, he reminded me of Dante, only that he was handsome: and he had such a general air of knowing everything worth knowing (without the least pedantry, however), that I was quite airaia ot mm. lie was evi dently wrapped up in John, and pa tient with his sister which was asking quite enough of Christian charity under the sun, for Mrs Shellgrove was an unmitigated 18, 1874. nuisance. Such a talker ! babbls 1 ing of her own and her brother's affairs with an equal indiscretion, j and treating the latter as though he were an incapable infant. They staid with us three years, and during that time I was fairly persecuted about John. Mrs. ShelK grove wrote me a letter on the sub ject, in which she informed me that the whole family were ready to ' receive me with open arms a pros pect that I did not find at all allur ing. They seemed to have set their hearts upon me as a person peculiary fitted to train John in the way he should go. Every thing, 1 was iL3, depended on his getting the right kind of wife. A special interview with Mr. Cranford, at his particular request, touched me considerably. ' I hope,' said he, 'that you will not refuse my boy, Miss Edna. He has set his heart so fully upon you, and you are every thing that I could desire in a daughter. I want some one to pet. I feel aadjy lonely at times, and I am sure that you would just fill the vacant niche.' I drew my hand away from his caress, and almost felt like hating John Cranford. Life with him would bejone of ease andtluxury,but 1 decided 1 would rather keep boarders. Not long after this the Cranfords concluded to go to housekeeping, and Mrs. Shelgrove was in her glory. She always came to lunchs eon now in her bonnet, and gave us minute details of all that had been done and talked of about the house in the last twenty-four hours. ' It is really magnificent.' said she, lengthening each syllable. ' Brother has such perfect taste; and he is actually furnishing the library, Miss Edna, after your sug gestion. You see, we look upon you quite as one of the familv.' That is Yery good of you,' I re plied, shortly; 'but 1 certainly have no expectation of ever belonging to it.' Mrs. Shellgrove laughed as though I had perpetrated an excels lent joke. ' Young ladies always deny these things, of course; but John tells a diflerent story. 1 rattled the caps and saucers angrily: and my thoughts floated off not to John, tut to John s lather, sitting lonely in the library furnish J after my suggestion. Wasn't it, after all my uuty to marry the family generally ? The house was finished and moved into, and John spent his evenings with me. 1 used to get dreadfully tired of him. He was really too devoted to be at all xos terestmg, and I had reached that state of feeling that, if summarily oraerea to taice my cnoice octween him and the gallows, I wouid have prepared myself for 'hanging with a sort of cheerful alacrity. i I locked the door upon John on the evening in question, when I had finally got rid of him, with these feelings in full force; and I meditat ed while undressing on some des perate move that should bring mat ters to a crisis. But the boy had become roused at last. He too had reflected in the watches of the night; and next day I received quite a dignified letter from him, telling me that business called him from the city for two or three weeks, and that possibly on his return I might appreciate his devotion better. I felt inexpressi-. bly relieved. It appeared to me the most sensible move that John had made in the whole course of our acquaintance, and I began to breathe with more freedom. Time flew, however, and the three weeks lengthened to six with out John's return. He wrote to me, but his letters became somewhat constrained; and I scarcely knew what to make of him. If he would only give me up, I thought; but I felt sure that he would hold me to that weak promise of mine, that I should either, become Edna Cran ford or remain Edna Carrington. ' Mr. Cranford' was announced one evening, and I entered the par lor fully prepared for an overdose of John, but found myself confront ed by his father. He looked very grave: and in stantly I imagined all sorts of things and reproached myself for my cold ness. John is well V I gasped, finally. Quite well,' was" the reply, in such kind tones that I felt 6ure there was something wrong. What it was I cared not, but poured forth my feelings to my astonished visitor. ' He must not come here again V I exclaimed. ' I do not wish to see him. Tell him so, Mr. Cranford ! tell that I had rather remain Edna Oarrington, as he made me promise, than to becomeEdna Cranford.' And he made you promise this?' was the reply. " The selfish fel low ! But, Edna what am I to do without the little girl 1 have been expecting ? I am very lonely so lonely that I do not see bow I can give her up. 1 glanced at him, and the . room seemed swimming aronnd every thing was dreadfully unreal. I tried to sit down, and was carried to the sofa. 'Shall it be Edna CarrinErton or Edna Cranford ?' he whispered. ' You need not break your promise to John. ' Edna Cranford,' 1 replied, feel ing that I had left the world entire ly, and was in another sphero of existence. If the thought crossed my mind that Mr. Cranford had rather cheerfully supplanted his son, the proceeding was fully justified during the visit which I soon received from that young gentleman. I tried to make it plain to him that I did him no wrong, as 1 had never professed to love him, though not at all sure that 1 wouldn i luvi,. cue suaviug threatened on a previous occasion, and I endeaavored to be as tender as possible, for I really felt sorry for him. To my great surprise, John laughed. ' Well, this is jolly !' he exclaim ed 'And I'm not a villain, after all. What do you think of her, Edna ?' He produced an ivorytype in a rich velvet case a pretty, little, blue-eyed simpleton; she looked like aetat seventeen. ' Rose,' he continued ' Rose Darling; the name suits .her, doesn't it ? She was staying at my uncle's in Maryland that's where I've been visiting, you know and she's such a dear little confiding thing that a fellow couldn't help falling in love wiih her. And she thinks no end of me, you see says she's quite afraid of me, and all that.' John knew that I wasn't a bit afraid of him; but I felt an elderly sister sort of interest in his happi ness, and never liked him so well as at that moment. And this was the dreadful news that his father had come to break to me, when his narrative was nipped in the bud by my revelations, and the interview ended in a far more satisfactory manner than either of us had auticipated. So I kept my promise to John, after all, and as Miss Rose kept hers, he is now a steady married man, very agreeable son-in.law. Isoneliness ofthepcean, One who has never traveled upon the ocean expects to nnd it some what thickly populated. He thinks of the vast travel and traffic that goes over the waters, and he i3 ready to imagine that tho grat deep is alive with its hurrying to and fro of the nations. lie reads of lands 'where commerce whitens every sea,' and he is ready to think that the ocean itself is as full of sails as the harbor of some mighty me tropolis. But he finds his mistake. As he leaves the land the ships be gm to disappear. As he goes on his way they soon all vanish, and there is nothing about him but the blue sea and blended skv. Some times he may meet or overtake solitary ship during the day; but then, again, there will be many days when not a single sail will cross the horizon. There are spaces measured by thousands of miles, over which no ship has ever passed The idea of a "nation's commerce whitening every sea," is the wildest tancy. It all the ships that have ever been built were brought to gether in a single fleet they would nil but a hand s breadth ot the ocean. The space, therefore, that man and his works occupy on the sea is as small in extent as the hold on it by his power is slight and superficial. Both together are as nothing. Ihe ocean covers three fourths of the surface of the globe, and by far the greater part of this Yast expanse is and ever had been entirely Free irom his presence and visitation. Springing Out of Bed. Dr. Hall docs not approve of the old doctrine which was formerly instilled into the minds of children, that they should spring out of bed the instant they awake in the morning. He says that " up to eighteen years every child should be allowed eight hours sleep, but time should be allowed to rest in bed, after the sleep is over, until they feel as if they had rather get up than not. It is a very great mistake for persons, old or young especially children and feeble or sedentary persons to bounce out of bed the moment they wake up; all our instincts shrink from it, and freely kick against it. Fifteen or twenty minutes spent in gradually waking up, after the eyes are open ed, and in turning over and stretch ing the limbs, do as much good as sound sleep, because the operations set the blood in motion by degrees, tending to equalize the circulation ; for duriDg sleep the blood tends to stagnation, the heart beats feebly and slow, and to shock the system by bouncing up in an instant and sending the blood m overwhelm ingly quantities to the heart, caus ing it to assume a gallop, where the instant before it was in a creep ia the greatest absurdity. This instantaneous bouncing out of bed as soon as the eyes are open wil be followed by weariness long be fore noon. MO. Success in Life. Perhaps the first and great re quisite to perfect siteec. in life i to be fully periurded in mind what is the object you wish to attain. Many make their first false step by a wavering, uncertain beginning. Not quite sure what their true aim s, they waste precious time and acquire habits that will unfit them or any patient, continuous or en ergetic laber. Success must depend, in a crreat degree, upon the determination to concentrate one s .self upon some one object. Ihe object of one's amcition, then, fully and unchangeably decid- perseverencc, punctuality and hon esty should be pursued. There is no royal road to success ; for though, as David Copperfield has told us, some happy talent and some fortunate opportunity may form the two sides of the ladder on which men mount, the rounds of the adder must bo made of stuff to stand wear and tear. For the first round there is per haps no better substitute than per severance perseverence that will ead one to work, to go over the same dull routine of what is often merely mechanical and uninterest ing to labor. It is doubly needed at the commencement ot business, for here concentrate all the great obstacles that impede the way, so that it ohen seems that tho first third is the only really difficult por tion of the road to success. Punctuality, though seemingly ranking among the lesser virtues, its absence will occasion as great evils aa many a graver fault, and it cannot be dispensed with in any of the departments of life. The professional man is ruined without it, and in a business man its ab sence cannot be tolerated. Honesty is, i from selfish mo tives only, the best policy. Hon esty that will lift a man not only above a dishonest act, but a mean act, or unworthy motive ; honesty that will extend into all his deal ings, that will allow no shuffling or shirking of duty, no appearance oi wealth not actually possessed, no extravaganoe of living for himself or family that may not strictly and knowingly be allowed, without do triment to himself or his business, or without injury to others. Ihcse qualities combined win form a strength of character suffi cient to overcome obstacles, and to insure success mlileiu any of its diverse pursuits. They can never be dispensed with. Were the Egyptians Negroes. Astounding as it may appear, there are those who make such u pretence. If it could be demonstra-. ted, it would prove that the negro is capable of taking rank amon'thc greatest of mankind. But demons tration is just the other way. The providentially conferred art of embalming, which the Egyptians possessed to a perfection equalled by no other people, has settled the whole question. Of all the millions ot mummies taken from the pyra mids, not one has the negro con formation, or any of his physical peculiarities. A writer who assis ted in excavating the mummy of a young lady of seveuteen, supposed to be the daughter of the High Priest of that Pharoah under whom Joseph ruled, says she was in almost as perfect a condition as if she had lately died, with small hands and feet, and hair a yard long. The same author bears testimony to the fact that all the other mummies he ever saw had the distinguishing characteristics of the white race, and expresses the opinion that Providence endowed the Egyptians with the art of embalming ir. order to preserve an enduring testimony that they did not belong, as fanatics would afterwards assert, to the negro race. Kindling Fires. Many persons have often no ticed the extreme difficult encoun tered in lighting the fire of a stove, The stove at first won't draw ; even vigorous " blowing " will not suf-, fice ; and then, when it does start it is with a sort of explosion or outward rush of air, which fills the room with smoke and gas, oftcn times puffing the unpleasant fumes in the face of the operator. The trouble is caused by the difficulty encountered in overcoming the in-, ertia of the long column of air in the pipe or chimney by the small column of air that can be forced up through the interstices of the wood and coal, at the bottom of which the fire is kindled. All this may be remedied by simply putting a few shavings or bits of dry paper on the top of the wood or coal, and first lighting that. Jt immediately bursts into a blaze, because the air has perfectly free access to it from all sides ; the heated air forces its, way into the chimney and estab"' lishes there an upward currehfV. The match can then be applied to the kindling under the fuel, which will readily light, and, if dry, burst into a brisk flame.
