I did not marry for love. Very few people do, so in this respect I am neither better nor worse than my neighbors. Xo, I certainly did not marry or love. I believe I mar ried Mr. Uartwright simply because he asked inc. This was how it happened, lie was rector of Dovctou, and we lived at the Manor House, which was about (en minutes' walk from the church, and the rectory. We had daily service at Dorcton, and I near ly always attended it. and it came to pas that Mr. Carlwrijjlit invariably walked home with trie, ft was a matter of custom now, and I tho't nothing of it ; it pleased him, and, on the whole, it was rather pleasant to me also. I must confess, however, 1 was rather surprised when, one morniug as we jjot to the avenue which led up to the Manor House, Mr. Cart wright asked me lo be his wife. I have never been able to find out why I said yes, but I did. Tei-haps I thought it n pity to throw away so much love; perhaps it was because he was so terribly in earnest that I dared not refuse him ; perhaps I feared his pale face, and his low pleading voice would ever haunt me if I rejected his love; or perhaps it was bejeause he only asked me to marry him he did not ask me if I loved him, for I think he guessed I did not; perhaps it was all these reasons put together; but anyhow I said yes, and in due time ire were married. I ought to have been very happy, for he was a most devoted husband, but I was not, and, though I did not notice it then, I know now that for the first six mouths after our mar riage ho was not happy either. It was all my fault. I cither wo'd not or could not love him ; I accept ed all his devotion to me as a matter of course, but-1 .made no effort to return it; and I am sure he had found out that he had made a mis take in mam ing n woman who did not Joye him. One morning, about ,-ix months after our marriage, he told me at breakfast that he intended leaving me alone for a' lew weeks to stay with his mother, who was not very well. He watched the ellect of this announcement on me, but, though I was really displeased, I concealed my annoyance, and asked carelessly when he would start. He replied, the next day if I had no objection, and so it was settled. He was more nffectionate than usual that dny, and I was colder than ever; I only once alluded to his journey, and that was to ask if I might have my sister Maud to stay while he was gone. The next morning I was anxious to avoid a formal parting, so I drove to the station with him ; as the train moved off, I remembered this was our first parting 6ince our marriage, and I wished I had not been so cold. When I got home the house looked so dreary and empty, and there was no one to meet me; presently one of the servants came for the shawls, and with her Xero, Mr. Carlwright's retriever, which, when be saw I was alone, set up a howl for his master. I patted him, and tried -to comfort him, feeling rebuked by his grief, as he followed me, whining, into the house. Every room seemed empty, aud each spoke of the absent master ; at last I wandered into his study, where he spent his mornings, and liked me to sit and work ; and now I remembered how often I had cx' cuscd myself, saying I preferred the drawing-room, and this reflection did not add to my happiness. There was a photograph of me standing on his writing-table, and another on the chimney-piece ; on the walls hung two or three of my draw ings, which he had begged of me when we were engaged ; indeed the room was full of little remembran ces of me; I opened a book I had given him, and in it was his name in my haudwritiug, and underneath, in his own, "From my darling wife." I laid it down with a sigh, as I tho't how carefully he treasured every thing I had e ver given him, aud how little care I took of all his gifts to inc. Everything I attempted, every thing I looked at, reminded me of his goodness to me, aud of my cold ness and ingratitude to him. At last I went to bed, after working myself into a fever of anxiety lest he should not have reached the end of his journey in safety. I at length cried myself to sleep. The next morniug I went down to breakfast with a heavy heart, for I knew I could not hear from him till the next day ; it seemed so strange to breakfast alone, and Nero appear ed to think so too, for he was most unhappy, sniffing round his master's chair iu the most melancholy manner. My plate, for the first time 6ince my marriage, was empty, as I sat down to breakfast, for my husband, who was an early riser, always had a little boquet to greet me with every morning; frequently I forgot all about it, and left it to be put into water by the servant ; this morning I would have treasured it most carefully, if he had gathered it. After breakfast I determined to rouse myself, and go and visit some ol the poor people in the village, so I filled my basket with some little delicacies for the sick and set out. "Wherever I went it was? the same story; all held forth on my hus band's goodness and kindness, for all had been helped by him in some way or other, and all loved and res pected him. As I listened with burning cheeks, I felt as if I was the only person on earth who had treat ed him with cruel ingratitude, and I was the very person whom he most loved and cherished. At last I went home, tired and sick at heart; but there was no one to notice I was pale and worn out, no one to get me wine or soup to revive me, no one to make mo lie down and rest, as he would have done had he been there. Oh, how I missed him I What a fool I had been I "Was there ever woman loved and cared for as I had been ? "Was there ever friend so ungrateful ? Oh I why had I let him leave me? I was sure he would never come back. Why had he gone away ? And conscience answered, "You drove him : he gave you all he had to give, and in return you gave him nothing but cold looks and unkind words; and so he left you, to seek love and sympathy from his mother." This thought almost maddened me. In fancy I saw her silting in my place by his side, loving and caressing him, as I had the best right to love and caress him ; I pic tured her receiving tenderly the lit tle loving acts I had received so coldly, and now I was seized with a jealous auger against her. I men tally accused her of estranging my husband from me, and of trying to win his love from me, as though his heart was not largp enough for us both. When Maud arrived iu the nfteruoon, I treated her to a long tirajfe of abuse against mothers-in-law iu general, and my own in par ticular, and I vented all (he anger I really felt against myself on the in nocent Mrs. Cartwright. "Why, Nelly," said Maud, "I tho't yon liked Mrs. Cartwright so much, and thought her so nice that you even wanted her to live with you, only your husband very properly, as mamma says, objected." "So I did," I answered ; "but I did not know that she would ever entice my husband away from me in this way, or, of course, I should never have liked her." "Itcally, Nell, you arc very hard on the poor woman ; for, as I under stand, Mr. Cartwright went to her of his own free will, because she was not well, and he thought his com pany would do her good," said Maud. "Nonsense; I am sure he would never have left me alone unless she had put him up to it," I replied, rather crossly. "The truth is, Nelly, you are so much in love with your husband that you are jealous even of his mother, and you arc making your scl f miserable about nothing. Why, Mr. Cartwright will be back in a fortnight, and I dare say you will get a letter from him every day; so cheer up, and let us go for a drive," said Maud. I agreed to this plan, and, giving Maud the reins, I lay back and tho't of her words. Was she right, after all ? Was I jealous ? Was I really, as Maud said, in love with my hus band ? Had I only found it out now that I was deprived of his company ? Was this the reason that I could do nothing but inwardly reproach my self for my conduct to him? And the longer I thought the more con vinced I became that Maud wa right that I was jealous, and that I was in love, as she called it. This knowledge did not make me happier, for I no sooner knew I loved him than I longed to tell him so, and make up, as far as I could, for all my former cruelty; for I could call my conduct by no milder word. I passed a sleepless night, aud, as I lay awake, I composed various let ters of confession, which I resolved to send the following day ; but when morniug came my pride stepped in, and I began to feel it would be im possible to write, and I settled that I must wait till my husband came home, aud then tell him how his absence had altered me. I got up early and walked out to meet the post-man, so anxiouB was I to get a letter from him ; it was the first I had ever received from him since our marriage, and no girl was ever so anxious for, or so pleased with, her first love-letter, as I wa3 over this. It was a long letter, full of loving messages and terms of endearment, all of which cut me to the heart, for they sounded like so many reproach es; in reality I think there was a tone of gentle reproach throughout the letter. He gave me an account of his journey, and of his mother's health, begged me to write to him a few lines every day ; but he said not a woid about returning. I spent the morning in answering it, much to Maud's amusement, who, of course, thought I was pouring out violence of love aud complaints of my temporary widowhood ; after tearing up about a dozen sheets of paper, I at last scut a short note, cool and with no allusions to my misery. The more I tried the more Impossible I found it to write any expression of love or penitence, though I was hungering to do so. For a whole week I went on iu this way, suffering more acutely every day, and every day receiving long, loving letters from Mr. Cart wright, and writing short, cold answer. I lost my appetite; I could not sleep at night, and the torture I was enduring made me look so ill that Maud became frightened, aud de clared she would write and summon my husband home, and toll him I was pining away for him. I forbade her doing this, so sternly that she dared not disobey me, for I was de termined he should never hear from any lips but mine thai at last his heart's desire was attained, for I loved him. At last, when he had been away ten days, I could bear it no longer for I felt I should have brain fever if I went on in this way, so I deter mined to go to Melton, where Mrs. Cartwright lived, and see my hus band. I came to this decision one night, and went into Maud's room early in the morning, to tell her my intention. I expected she would laugh at me, but I think she guessed something was wrong, for she seem ed glad to hear it, and helped me to pack a few things and set off in time to catch the morning train. It was three hours' journey ; they seemed three years to me, for the nearer I got to my husband the more impatient I was to see him. At last we got to Melton a largish town. Of course, as I was not expected, there was no one to meet me, so I took a fly to Mrs. Carlwright's house, where I arrived about 3 o'clock. I learned afterwards that Andrew was with his mother in the little drawing-room when I drove up, but thinking I was only a visitor, he escaped into another room, so I found my mother-in-law alone. I)y her side were some of my hus band's socks which she wa3 darnin" socks which I had handed over to the servants to mend, and which I now longed to snatch away from his mother. His desk stood open, a letter to me, which he was writing, lying on it. Theservantannounced me as Mr3. Andrews, my voice failing as I gave my name, so that Mrs. Cartwright held up her hands in astonishment when she saw who it was. "My dear! Nelly I Has anything happened? How ill you look! What is it?" she exclaimed. "I want my husband," I gasped, sinking on to a chair, for I thought I should have fallen. Without an other word Mrs. Cartwright left the room ; I feel sure now she guessed all about it, and I can never thank her enough for forbearing to worry me with questions a? to what I had come for. She came back iu a few minutes with a glass of wine, which she made me drink of, saying she would scud him to me at once if I took it. I complied, and she went to fetch him ; iu another minute I heard his step outside the door, aud then he came in. "Nell, my love my darling! what is it ?" he cried, as I rushed into his outstretched arms, and hid my face on his breast, sobbing bitterly. For some moments I could not 8pcak; at last I recovered myself enough to sob out: "Oh, Andrew, my love! my dear love! can yon ever forgive me? I came lo a9k you, and to tell you I can't live without you." I would have said more, but his kt3ses stop ped my mouth, and when at length he let me go there were other tears upon my cheek besides my own. That was the happiest moment of my life, in spite of my tears; and, before my mother-in-law again join ed us, which she discreetly avoided doing till dinner-time, I had poured out all I had to tell into my hus band's eara ; and I had learned from him that he had left me to try what effect his absence would have on me ; for he had felt for some time that my pride waa the great barrier he had to overcome to win my love. He had judged right. He was loo generous to tell me how much he had suffered from my indifference, but I know it must have grieved him terribly. He is a different man now, he looks so happy, and I know he would not change places with any one on earth. We went back lo the rectory the next day, but we could not persuade Mrs. Cartwright to come with us ; she said we were best alone, and I think she was right. Jupiter, Sat urn, mi I .TJ:irs Full Inlo liine and are .lust Xttyr hJo'l5 oi Special Intercut. Venus is now about an hour, in right ascension, behind the sun, but is so much farther south that she sets only a few minutes later. She will become a morning star on Sep tember it'.). Jupiter, Saturn and Mars are at this time very conspicuous, Jupiter being well up at dark. Saturn is two hours and twenty minutes be hind Jupiter, and Mars' about the same distance behind Saturn, the t i i t . -. . mice, iroin v ociock, wneii jiars rises, stretching a magnificent line from the eastern horizon to the me ridian. Mars shows distinctly the snows about its south pole. There is little else of interest iu the planet at this time. Saturn is beginning to show its ring system with great distinctness and beauty. For two years the rings have been turned almost edge wise to us, and being very thin, say one hundred miles iu thickness, they have been visible only because they tipped a little from a direct line to the earth. The angle is widening now, aud in about five years it will be almost a right angle, at which time the rings are quite large, and the. general aspect one which amply re pays observation. Jupiter is presenting some unus ual phenomena. It has been noticed at times that a fiame-colored liht C3 mingled with the white light. Just now the northern equatorial belt is of a reddish brown color, the color being very con?picuou9. There is also a large spot of the same color, or somewhat brighter, just below the southern equatorial bell much like a broken belt, say one-quarter of the angular diameter of the plan et, or between two hundred thou sand and three hundred thousand miles iu length. There is also a small ruddy spot a little lower and toward the western limb when the large spot is on the meridian, which is turned toward the earth. A large patch of pure white lies between the two equatorial belts. All these phenomena, with the exception of the small ruddy spot, may be seen even in a small telescope. What these peculiar appearances of Jupiter indicate is one of the conundrums. Chicago Times. The SailnrV Death-Grip. The words "grip," "lay hold," "tenacity," arc expressive of phys ical force and moral resoluteness. A boy who would be a thorough merchant is told lo ' lay hold" of correct business habits aud princi ples. He who desires to grow up a good mau must "grip" certain moral ideas. The force of these words may be illustrated by an incident. "I was once sailing by the Island of Cuba'" said a sea-Captain, "when I was startled by the cry, 'Man overboard!' A sailor, at work in the forecastle, had fallen into the ocean. Seizing a rope, I threw it to the drowning man just a3 he passed the ship's stern. He caught it. "Makiug a slip-noose, I slid it dowu to the struggling sailor, di recting him to pass it under his arms. He was drawn on board, but suchwas his death-grip on the rope, caught as the ship was sailing by that it took two hours before his grasp relaxed so that it could be re leased from his hands. The strands were imbedded in the flesh." That sailor's death-grip illustrates Paul'? meaning when he bade Tim oty "lay hold on eternal life." Pretty Severe Punishment. Tho Capitol Steal is terminating about a3 the Sun predicted it would. A bill wa3 passed allowing $75,000. That was bad enough ; but now that the plans have been submitted and examined, the committee make the startling discovery that $460,000 will be required. Undoubtedly in the next Legislature there will be in troduced a bill asking for. the addi tional $385,000, and the men who vote for it should be tarred and feathered. Schuyler Sun.

THE GOOD WORK GOES ON. Oar Mite of Tl an J Irou Laid on the Lincoln and .torton-Mum vrtttruar. The laying of iron on the Lincoln & Northwestern Railroad, com menced in earnest yesterday morn ing, and continued until the C o'clock evening bell called the workmen from labor to refreshment. We were driven over four miles of the line by N. J. Abbott, and had an opportu nity uot only of seeing a railroad bed a3 straight as an arrow, but observing the machine for hand ling the tics and rails. This machine, railroad men say, docs away with team work and a great amount of labor, and we believe every word they say. The construction train yesterday consisted of a locomotive and seven cars, the engine behind and the cirs heading westward. Four of tin car? were loaded with ties, two with rails, and oue with hMi bir, spikes, etc. The ircn and tics nrc handled with hand-spikes, on thn end of which is a sharp spike and a few inches above the point, a crook ; with these the tics and iron nre dragged from the cars to a roadway, a continuous scl of rollers on cither side of Mm cars. Here men arc sta tioned who keep the tics and mild moving until they reach tho front car, where they arc taken off and dropped on the road-bed; while the tie carriers are carrying off and dropping the tic?, the iron handlers follow them aud lay the rails upon the tics; in a few moments they are temporarily spiked down, the brake man gives the signal, and the loco motive pushes tho cars on to Hie cud of the rails just laid; and so the work goes on, from feet to rods and from rods to milc3. Away back, between Ihc locomotive and city, a large force of men are busily en gaged in making level the ties and more securely spiking down the rails. The Division Engineer, who is superintending the work personally, informed us that the force at present engaged is light, and that he would not be able to lay more than a mile per day; but next week, with an additional force of men and a few more cars, he would be able to get through with one mile and a half. The work h.13 now commenced in earnest, aud will not cease until tho iron horse makes the welkin ring iu the vicinity of Columbus. Lincoln Journal, Sept. 9. The E. . this 'iVeelf. Our information is to the effect that trains make regular trips to Stanton, arriving in the evening and departing in the morning; that the grade to Pierce will be completed by Saturday; that a preliminary line has been run from Battle Creek to Ives creek in Antelope county a perfect bee line that far with a prob ability of striking Oakdalc without a curve in the whole distance of 20 miles ; that a petition and bond have been filed by free-holders in Twin Grovc,(Oakda!e) precinct for calling an election in Enid precinct to vote on a proposition to donate to the E. V. $10,000 in 7 per cent. 20 year bonds ; that Judge Wisner of Cedar Rapids has filed with the Co. Clerk proposition to extend the road to our east county line by Dec. 1, 1870, and to Oakdalc by July 1, 18S0, condi tioned upon the bonn3 of $10,000 above named. These papers will come before tho County Commissioners on Friday wus wcck. j.-cn ana jtiow. The be3t receipt wc know, if you want to be miserable, is to think about yourself, how much you have lost, how much you have not made, and the poor prospect for the future. A brave mau with a soul iu him gets out of such pitiful ruts aud laughs at discouragement, rolls up his sleeves, whistles and sings, and makes the best-nf life. This earth never was intended for Paradise, and the man who rises above his discouragement and keeps his man hood will only be the stronger and better for his adversities. Many a noble ship has been saved by throw ing overboard its most valuable cargo, and many a man 13 better and more humane after he has lost his gold. A very rich Mexican lady, who lives in Paris, sent the other day for a popular pianist, and said to him : "Monsieur, on Saturday I give a grand 6oiree, and I desire to let my guests hear an artist of your exalted, reputation." "Oh ! madame " "What are your terms?" ''Seven hundred francs, madame." "Very well. You may come Sat urday, then. Oh I one word more; I want you (0 play very softly very softly, you know, in order not to disturb the conversation." A man seeing the sign, "Hands off," Innocently asked If they bad gone on a picnic.
