There was once a Spanish gentle man of high rank, who had led a very wild and dissolute life,bat now desired to settle down on his estate and take to himself a wife who would preside over his household in a fitts ing-manner. Being rich and hand some, his wickedness went for naught, and soon he was betrothed to a lovely lady, whose family were pleased with the alliance and who brought him a fine fortune. The wedding was celebrated with great pomp, and when he brought his wife home to the pl&co the poor - , . , -fv.rj . fe.-...- abOUt the door, and one, a withered u atrnar nm9n nnA :n " ""fefe" "V r-- Ues or the ladj 8 beauty, and begged f nermlttpd tt nrpspnt her with be -permitted to present iter wun DOquet Of white Wild flowers that she had cathered in the woods. v , . c - . iji -i A poor Offering, my lady, Said tne woman. 'but all the t)00T CVDSV , " uss to give. the ladv took the rlowera with a smile, and dropped coin into the gypsy had. - As she entered ; the doqr she bent her lovely head and inhaled the perfume of the flowers. Ihe servants remembered the action and her smiles as she passed into her apartment leaning on her husband's arm. for it was the last they ever saw of her. An hour af ter Bhe lay dead, and all the doctors in Madrid could not tell what killed her. The young widower was very sad for a lonff time, but bv arid by' he began to find life bright once more, and chose for himself a second wife This lady was younger and lovelier than the first, though not bo rich. II er predecessor s fate did not alarm her, for she was strong and full of health. Death seemed to be very far from so radiant a creature when she stood before the church altar and plighted her troth to the man with whom she hoped to pass her life; but those who remembered his first wife s fate shuddered, as at tbe fall of evening she entered the gates of her husband's villa. The same old gypsy who had greeted the former bride stood amid tbe crowd. 'Heaven and the saints blessyou, lady !' she cried. 'I greeted her who came here before and she taded like a flower. May you live till your hair is as white as mine. Flow ers are all I have to give. Will you honor me by taking them lady?' The bride, as the other bnae naa done, accepted the offering and repaid the giver with coin. She held the blossoms in her had, and passed into the hall. A banquet was prepared and she par. took of it. V ine was on the board; she tasted it. When the dance be gan none danced more gayly than the bride. It was a merry wedding; and when at last in the early hours of the morning the music had died away, the guests departed, and the . . t. j ii i , - .. fvj k lamps Were CXUHgUlSUeu, me UCau I tiful srirl turned with Smiles and hlnshefi to seek her rjlace of rest As she crossed the threshold of the I hall Bhe Stooped and picked some I . . - n ttUtPx Ir0m tUe U0. Mv Door evpsv's flowers, she said. 'I will not reject the humble token of kindness,' and bending her head over them she passed out of sight. Half an hour afterward the hus band also entered the bridal room. All was still. The lamplight fell upon the pillows but no fair head rested on them. lie looked about him; in a far corner of the room lay what looked like a bundle of rump led satin at first sight, Ue advanc ed toward it, and saw a hand that grasped convulsively a little bundle of white flowers, and with a cry of horror, cast himself beside the body of his bride. She was dead; she bore no wound, no sign of injury about her. Again the physicians could find no cause for the death, and people began to whisper tales of the evil spirits who haunted this fatal bridal chamber, and did to death the fair beings who braved them by entering it. Again the gentleman was a wido wer, again he suffered much sorrow, but it was not eternal. lie began in time to seek another bride, but in vain. No one would risk the fate of those other young and lovely women. No one would have this Bluebeard, the mystery of whose castle was so terrible: and for years the widower went a wooing without winning, until one morning, meet ing the Donna Mora on her way to church, her black eyes reiled be neath her black mantilla, be made a grand impression, and was per mitted ere long to offer his hand and heart with true Spanish gallan try. Donna Mora who was a widow, listened not ill pleased. 'I do not detest you, Senor,' and I will tell you frankly so; but you have had strange bridals heretofore. 1 do not feel tired of life, and desire to enjoy myself a little longer. Let me know how your first wives died, lou must know. . un my soul 1 do not, saia tne gentleman. (I believe you,' said the lady, 'Listen to me, then. 1 am ready to marry you, but before 1 do 1 must be allowed to inspect your house from roof to cellar. You must vacate it and give me the keys, and I will go there alone with my sister. 1 will discover the mistery if tnere is one. 'Donna Mora,' saii ths gentle- an, Mo as you will. I vacate the j dwelling at once. There are the I keys. The long one of steel opens that fatal chamber which 1 beg you not to enter-the bridal chamber of my dear brides. .Adieu ! Thanks for your promise, which 1 shall hasten to claim when you summon me. He kissed her hand and rode j away. bhe at onee made ready to Beek the dwelling of which she had heard so much, lhe lumbering carriage held her, her sister, two brothers, maid, man servant and pet poodle very well. And at last they came in sight of the old Moorish building and paused to inspect it. 'I begin to tremble,' said Donna Anna. 'I have no fears,' said Donna Mora. Then she ordered the corchman to drive closer, descenaea ana unb locked the gate with her own hands All was still; only the echoes wered them. ans- Their feet awoke stairs, they made more on tne I Donna Anna! nervous. Uonna Mora was orave as a man. They inspected every room: they . i ...

All that was known. And for the first time Donna Mora heard of the old gypsy and her flowers. Then Bhe waited, pacing the floors of the empty room while Don na Anna watched from the window, and the brothers smoked their ci garretts in the courtyard. What was she waiting tor r bhe told no one. At last : 'Sister, is any one coming ? I thought I heard a step.' it is an old gypsy with some flowers,' said Donna Jinn a. And Donna Mora said : 'Bid her come in.' Then passing between tho smok ing brothers, who scarcely looked up, and by the little dog, who growled, entered an old woman, shriveled and yellow, who courte- sied, and said : 'May the good stars shine for the nretty senoritas and the brave senors. I have heard the lady who is to be mistress here has come, and x am old and may not live to see her a bride, and would fain wel come her.' Then Donna Mora answered : 'I am the lady.' 'Then may I offer a few wild flowers,' said the gypsy, and my good wishes, for the senor has been my benefactor. A poor gift, but do not scorn it.' She held the flowers toward Donna Mora who took them and put them down upon the table. 'Donna Anna, said she, 'bring my dog here. Brothers seize the gypsy. - &. . . . In a moment more the struggling woman was held in a strong grasp, and Donna Mora, holding the dog in her lap, presented the flowers to his nostrils. 'If he lives, free her; if ho dies, have her arrested,' she said quietly. Donna Anna hid her face. The brothers sternly regarded first the woman, tnen tne aos: tne iauer naa beEiun to tremble, in a moment ' . . J I more he uttered a whine, long and terrible to listen to. Donna Mora dropped the flowers. The poor creature lay motionless across her Ian. He was dead. 'Have the woman arrested, said Donna Mora again. 'It is she who has murdered those two poor women with her poisoned flowers, as she would have murdered me. But to the Senor when they met once more, she saia this : 'I knew the way of the gypsies and their art of poisoning flowers I know also that an injured gypsy girl is always avenged by her tribe. He who is false to one woman let 1 no other trust. Adieu.' The Schoolmaster Caught. A few years ago, when it was tha custom for large girls and boys to attend district schools, and when nageiiations were more common in schools than at the present time, an incident took place m a neighbor- ing town which is worth recording as a reminiscence of school-boy lAi "aJLD' ... vue oi me largest, plumpest ana direst gins in scnooi nappenea to a - ia Yioiaie uub ui tua leacuer s ruies.

Yes, sir, and my heart too,' promptly replied the girl, at the same stretch, ing forth her hand to the master and eyeing him with a cunning look, A I deathly silence reigned for a mo I ment in the school-room; a moist spot was seen to gutter in the mas- ter's eye; the ruler was laid upon the desk and the blushing girl was requested to take her seat, but to remain after the school was dismiss- lea; I In three weeks after the school nnisnea, tne scnooimaster ana the j girl were matried.

Only when this hope fails can we safely count on their permanently separating from it. We want our Democratic friends to consider in a thoughtful, manly wey this fact. I hey have gained through this re volt, and with the assistance of the better class of Republicans, a mag nificent series of victories. It is only by the aid of these reformers that the Democracy can hope to perpetuate those victories, and con solidate, on a firm basis, the power tney have acquired. Its policy should be one of gen erous conciliation, it it were to spurn from it the help that has been treely given at the elections just closed, it would do an unwise thing. For two years from December, 1875, it will have control of the House of Representatives. The responsibili ty that has thus been devolved upon it is very great. It has to satisfy the country that its confidence has not been misplaced. So far as it may be able, it has to incorporate its late allies into its own ranks. Some of them, perhaps many, will resume their places in the Republi can organization. Chastened by defeat, and weakened by disintegra tion, but retaining a portion ot its former power and influence though not strong enough, perhaDS, to re- cover the ground it has lost or the J confidence it has forfeited it is still to strong to disband, it will again confront the Democracy in the Pres- i luemmi eiecuuu vi 1010 uuu mune one more supreme ettort tor victory. In the meanwhile, the Democratic to draw party has it in its power new accessions of strength from the rants oi tne opposition Dy proving that it can be as magnanimous in victory as it nas oeen patient under defeat.

' ' The Man Who Lives Up Stairs. " The man who lives up stairs has much for which he will have to give an account, either in this world, or h Passed tbe Por" J!1' 0 1 ih? G"afl nown . . VVe are not of a revengeful dis- geful mougn at umes, our pnysicai or ganization has been racked with untold agony at his peculiar demon strations. ' . We have endured all with meek ness, realizing that; in "the far be yond a . season of rest , awaits us, wuwe . we suau ever where we shall evermore be jree frm tte tantarara of an upstairs of .. . . tenant. Precisely at five in the morning his alarm, clock . beats a devil's tatoo, "rousing us from refreshing slumber to become an unwilling lis lcu" ,ariclJf vr".. tener to the variety oi sounds juv -" y and ashes'; then with a" broad-axe, or beetle and wedge, he manufac tures a sufScent quantity of kind ling, start3 the fire, drops three or four stove-lids on the floor, drums on the stove-pipe with the poker, then at the expiration of twenty minutes, frantically vociforates : " Come, Maria, tea-kettle's bilin!" Instantly there is a frightful groane from the bedstead overhead, as " Maria " with a heroic spring leaps therefrom and alights on the floor with a jar that shakes the house to its foundation and causes the windows to rattle with sudden terror. We have borne with much that is annoying, and are willing to en dure a generous share of this world's racket ; but, when regularly every week the up-stairs-man brings home a quart of walnuts and cracks them on a nail head in the floor, driving bits of plastering into our hair and eyes, and racking our nervous sis tem with pangs unutterable, our indignation rises and we start to our feet with a fixed determination to visit the man above and demand a cessation of tho unendurable nut whanging. Once we ascended to his eyrie, and with livid countenance was about to annihilate him with a burst of wrath ; but at the sight of his huge frame our couraged col lapsed, and we could only exclaim : " There is a skunk trying to get into your hencoop." He thanked us for our trouble, offered us some walnuts which we politely declined. Then, after a cordial invitation to call again, wc 8ecjution of bade him adieu; and sought the a ten-acre lot, where we vented .our spleen by indulging in a lew emphatic remarks concern- 'lD& 0Ur Pusilli"nmy. nuuut tuc iime we generally re tire to our innocent couch, our up stairs neighbor descends to his cel lar and makes a vigorous assault on an empty parrel, which, alter an indefinite number of sledge-ham mer blows, is reduced to the con sistency of kindlings. Every night he repeats the operation, and our ears flap with disgust and pent-up anger. One day we vowed to out gener al our barrel-smasher. We ascer tained where he got the barrels, then went and engaged all that the concern had and was likely to have for the next three months, The result was, that in less than three weeks every available space on our premises was filled high with wooden ware. We felt that wo had triumphed over the upsstairs man, for he hadn't smashed a barrel since we made a contract for them. But what to do with the barrels was the question. We had no use for them, and our ground was rap- ... .... . . idly filling up with them in tact. thev had become a nuisance. Tho I i milkman had stumbled over them a nnrl wani-nri mn nf h a laroal wife had torn her dresses by getting them caught in the sharp staves and protrndin!? nails. A number niled against the fence had fallen upon a NO. 46. small boy, whose father threatened us with prosecution-. One evening Jones, who lived near by, came into our yard, and seeing the stuff piled about, asked what wc intended to do with the lumber. We told him wo didn't know ; had bought them for a par ticular purpose, but was afraid we should have no use for them after all. He asked if we would sell them ; we said, yes. He mado us an offer; consequently Mr. Jones became tho happy possessor of one hundred and fifty barrels, of assort'- ';d calibre and capacity. W c re- exulting tired that night, secretly on our good fortune in of the cumbersome truek. But we made nothing on our trade with Jones. We merely ac complished our purpose and got the best of the up-stairs man. The next night, as we lay on our downy bed, just closing our eyes in sleep, our ears were saluted with a terrific crash from the cellar of the up-stairs fellow. Thrice was the crash repeated. Heavens ! there was no mistak ing that sound he had found a barrel ! Next morning great was our sur prise at seeing the up-stairs man take some of the barrels, and throw " ?e them into his cellar I e went out and asked him if knew to whom the barrels be longed. , He said he did. Wo told him that we had sold them to Jones. '. "Jknow it," said he, " and an hour after he bought thetn of you, he sold them to me." Speechless with astonishment, we stood a monument of inexpressible dignation. What should we do ? We Lad no doubt of the up-stair' man's statement, else he would not have dared to take the barrels. Thoroughly exasperated, we star- fed for Jones, but found he had We were in for it. The future was delightful to con template. One hundred and fifty conseca.- tive nights of unalloyed harrcl Smashing. May the gods protect us and en able us to indure the ordeal with a fortitude worthy of emulation. There is no Placs Lika Home. This poetical expression is no less beautiful than true, for the fond attachment to home, portrayed by it, pervades all classes cf society. The wandering Sythians, who had no abiding habitation, maintained that regard and veneration fur tho sacred spot where the bones of their forefathers slumbered that the mighty army of Cyrus could not appal. The rude and untutored savage of our western wilds, whose dauntless spirit never quailed he quailed before a foe, ha.-: still a heart beating with the warmest love towards hi3 friends and the most tender regard for the sheltered nook that contains his wigwam. Hut in civilized life what is it that binds every sympathizing heart to the cottage where our fathers dwell ? Is it because of its intrinsic worth, its money value, or is it those heavenborn associations which connect each brook and rill, each hill and valley, with recollections of happy hours spent in the society of some youthful friend who now, perhaps sleeps beneath the sod. Yes, this tends more firmly to rivet the ties of affection, to paint to the imagination scenes which oc curred at home and to call up frcm the wreck of she buried past, hours sacred to memory, yet, these asso ciations, joyous as they are, would sink into comparative nothingness, if, from the circle where we spent our youthful days, was removed a mother; yes, home, sweet as it is would be a temple stripped ufit garlands, were ii not for the hal lowed name of mother to conscc-. rate its portals. Like the even ing dew, which scatters its frag ranee while all else is wrapped in slumber, so our mother, while every other ear is deaf, is attentive to our .... i i ... .. .. .i grieis, mmgies ner rears in uie cu; of our misfortunes and soothes o;r. tearless agony. What a solemn place for contem plation is the grave cf our Mother '. Happy tor us, it, wiien we stand there, we have no remembrance of harsh words in the past to harrow our feelings if wc can truly say that no raven thread of her tresses was ever turned to silver by our disobedience. If she had faults they are buried in eternal stillness and our only memories are the soothing words that fell from her lips, the sweet smiles rippling over her face and the warm sentiments ever swelling up from her pure heart, which float along like heavenly visions. Alas ! never did I fully compre hend the charms of that one word mother until the grave had cov ered her from my sight. But though the tall green grass waves over her grave and the gentle breezes of summer pass unheeded yet never, till my spirit is called to rejoin hers, never, till tho grave shall enclose my humble remains, will I forget that word mother. !
