One evening in the early part of the winter, the door-bell ranjr with enerr, and the servant announced a mau who wished to eeo me. A "man" h one thing with a servant, a '"gent I em an" another; a "person" still different from cither. The man stood in the hall, bnt I wondered wh' he had not been called a gentle man. 1 was puzzled where to place him myself. His dress was plain, bnt rather course. Ilis linen, that 'ladge of refinement, was white, in perfect order and almost elegant. Everything about him seemed sub stantia!, but nothing gave a clue to his position iu life. In all outward seeming he was a gentleman. "When he spoke to me, his address was simple, direct, clear and with a cer tain air of self reliauce, the farlhcst possible from vulgar bluster. "Doctor," he said, "I wish you would come and see my child. "We fear he i- threatened with croup. " The case, which he described as we went along, was a pretty clear one. and I hurried my walk still more, and in a few moments we were at the door. You will see in time why I give these little particulars. I entered the open door and wa met by a rather pretty and remarka bly tidy woniau, who could have been nobody in the world but tht wife of the man who had summoned me. "I am glad yon have come so soon." she said in soft, pure accent. "Little Willie seems o di-tro-;sed that he can hardly breathe ;" and the next moment a we parsed through a narrow passage to where he lay, I heard the unmistakable croupy sound, that justly carries such terror to the parent's, heart. "Is it the croup, doctor?" asked the tather, with a voice of emotion as I bent over the child, a fine boy, three years of afe. "It is certainly the croup," I said, "and a pretty violent attack. How long since you thought himick?" "Not above an hour," wa- the calm reply. It was made calm hv a firm er. She was ven pale, but did not trust herself to speak. "Then there i- prob-ibly but little danger,'' I said; "bnt webnvesome- tlt.nt t r An Ilfli-A t'Aii nntni Kam 2' ' The husband went to what seemed a closet, opened two doors, and dis closed a neat pine bathing-tub, sup plied with crotou. This was be yond my hopes; but I had no time to wonder. The little fellow was in a high fevtr, and laboring for breath. Taking him from his little crib, where he lay upon a nice hair mattress fit for a prince to sleep on, I took off his clean night-clothes. stood him in the bath-tub, and made j his father pour upon hi neck and chest cool water, while I rubbed him briskly with my hand. He was then wiped dry, and rubbed until his body was glowing like flime. Then I wrung a large towel ont of cold water aud put it around his throat, aud then wrapped him up in blankets. The brave little fellow had borne it all without a complaint, as if he understood that nnder his father's eve no harm could come to him. In litteen minutes after hewas wrapped j in blankets he was in a nrotuse ncr- ! spiration, in a sound slumber aud breathing freely. The danger wa over so rapid is this disease, and so easily cured. Happiness has shed a serene ray of light upon the counte nance of the tather, and thrown over the mother's face a glow of beauty. I looked upeu them, and was more than ever puzzled where to place them. There were no mark? of high birth, or superior breeding not a shadow of decayed gentility about them. It was rather the reverse, as if they were working np from a low rank of life to a higher. I looked around the room. It was the bedroom. Everything in it was perfectly neat and orderly. The bed, like the crib, was excellent, but not costly. The white counterpane did not cost more than ten shillings yet, how beautitul it looked! The white window curtains were shil ling muslin ; but their folds hung as richlv as if thev were damask and how very appropriate they seemed. The bath, with its snug folding doors, I knew had not cost, plum ber's bill and all, more than ten dol lars. The toilet table, of an elegant form, I had no doubt wa3 of pine, and cost half a dollar. The pictures on the wall were beautifnlly tinted lithographs better, far better than oil paintings I have seen in the houses of millionaires ; yet they can be bought tor fifty or seventy-five cents, and a dollar apiece had fram ed them. The Hoor had a carpet that matched everything with it. small neat figures, and a light cham ber color. It wa3 a jewel of a roon in as perfect keeping in all its parts as if an artist had designed it. Leaving the little boy to his un troubled sleep, aud giviug direc tions for a bath on his waking, we went into another room, which was differently but was just as neatly arranged. It might have answered for & parlor (only it had a cooking stove), for an artist's studio or a din ing room. It was hung with pic turesheads, historical pieces and landscapes, all such as a man of taste could select and buy cheap; bnt which, like good books are in valuable. And speaking of books, there was a hanging library on one side of the chimney which contained some of the very choicest treasures of tho English tongue. The man went to a bureau, opened a drawer, and took out some money. "What is your fae, doctor?" he asked, holding the bills eo as to select oue to pay me. Nov I had made up my mind be fore I had got half way up the stairs, that I might have to wait for my pay perhaps never get it; but all this had changed. I could uot, as I often do, enquire into the circum stances of the man and graduate my price accordingly. Tnere he stood, ready to pay me, with mone enough; yet it was evident that he was a workiusrman, aud far from wealthy; I had nothing left but to name the lowest fee. "One dollar does not seem enouah," stiid he; "you have saved my child? life, and von have been at more trouble than merely to write a pre-cription." "Do yon work for a living?" I asked, hoping to. solve the mystery. He Pinil.Hl and held out his hand, which pIhiwimI the unquestionable mark of honest toil. "You are a mechanic?' I Baid. willing to know more of him. "Take that." he said, placing a two dollar note in my hand with a not-to-he-refusd air, -and I will gratify your curiosity : for there is no use preteudinir that you are not a little enrious!" There was a hearty, respectful freedom about this that seem ed irresistible. I t the note a door, opened it into a closet ot moderate size, ami displayed the bench and tools of a shoemaker. "You rattst be an extraordinar workman, said I. loekinjr around the room, which seemed almost lux urious; but when I looked at each item I found that it cost very little. "No, nothing extra. I barely manage to earn ovpr a dollar and a half a day. Mary helps me a good deal. What with the housework and our boy to look after, she earns enough to make our wages average ten dollars a week. "We began with nothing w live as you see." All this comfort, this respectability, this almost luxury for ten dollars a week I I expressed my surprise. "I should be sorry if we spent so much," -aid he. ""We have not on ly managed to live oujthat, bnt we have something laid up in a saving bank." "Will yon have the goodness," said I, "just to exphiiu to me how you do it?" "With pleasure," he said, for you may persuade others no better off than I am to make the best of their situation. My name is William Carter. My father died when I wa young and I was bound out as an apprentice to a shoemaker, with the usual provisions of schooling. I did as boys do generally at school, bnt I was very fond of reading; I made the most of my spare time and the advantage of an apprentice's li brary. Frobably the books that helped me most were the sensible writings of William Cobbett. Fol lowing the example I determined to give myself a useful education, and I have to some extent succeeded. But a man's education is a life-long process ; and the more I learn, the more I see before me. "I was hardly out of my time when I fell in love with my Mary there, whom ome people think very pretty, but whom I know to be yery good." Mary looked up with such a bright loving smile, as to fullj justify some people in their notion. "Wheu I had been one year a jour neyman, and laid up a few dollars (for I had a strong motive to saving) we were married. I boarded at her father's and she bound f hoes for the shop where I worked. We lived a few weeks at home; but it was not our home; so -we determined to set up housekeeping. It was rather a small set-up, but we made it answer. I spent a week in house-hunting. At last I found this place. It was new and clean, high and airy, and I thought it would do. I got it for fifty dollars a jear and though the rents all around advanced, onr land lord is satisfied with that or takes it ia prefurence to risking a worse tenaut. The place was naked enough and we had little to pat in it save ourselves; but we went cheerfully to work, earned all we could, and you see the results." "I iee; but I confess I do not un derstand" said I, willing to hear him explain the economies of thin modest and beautiful home. "Well, it is simple enough. When Mary aud I moved ourselves here we took pos.-ession, with a ta ble, two chairs, a cook-stove, a sauce-pan or two, and a cot-bed with a straw mattress, and the first thing we did was to hold a conncil of war. Xow, Marv, my love,' said I, 'here we are. We have next to nothing, and nobody bnt ourselves to help ourselves.' We found that we could earn then an average of eight dollars per week. We determined to live as cheaply as possible, save all wc could, and make us a home. Onr rent was a dollar a week our fuel, light and water-rent and soma little matters a dollar more. We have allowed the same for our clotbiu". and by buying the be3t things, and keeping them carefully, dress well enough for that. Even my wife is satisfied with her wardrobe, and finds that good stufl at seveuty-livt-cents a yard is cheaper in the long run than calico at ten. That make three dollars a week, and we had still our living to pay for. That costs us, with three in our family just two dollars more." "Two dollars apiece?" "No two dollars for all. You seem surprised; but we have reck oned it over and over. It costs more at present, bnt we have learned to live cheaper so that we have a clour surplus of four dollars per week, after paying all expenses of rent, fire, light, water, clothing and food. I do not count our luxuries, such as an eveuing at a lecture or a concert, or a little treat to our friends when we give a little party." I know a smile came over m face, for he continued : "Yes, give a party; and we have some pleisant ones, I assure you. Sometimes we have a dozen guests, which is quite enough for comfort. but this is not very often. Out o our surplus which comes, yon ser, to two hundred a year we have bought all you see and have money in the bank." "I see all," said I, "all bat the liv ing. Many a mechanic spetids more than that for cigar?, to say nothing of Iiqucr. Pray tell me precisely how you live." "With pleasure. First of all, then. I smoke no cigars, and chew no tobacco, aud Mary takes no inuff." Here a pleasant smile came in ; but there was no interruption ; for Mary seemed to think her husband knew what he was about, aud could talk well without her aid. "I have not drank a glass of liquor since the day I wa married. I had read enough physiology to make up my mind that tea aud coffee con tained no nutriment, and were poi sons besides; and I tried a vegetable diet long enough to like it better than a mixed one; and I find that i' agrees with me better; and as we have read and experimented togeth er, of course Mary thinks as I do." "But what do yon cat and drink," 1 asked, curious to kuow how far this self-taught philosopher bad pro gressed in the laws of health. "Come this way and I will show you," he said, taking the light and leading the way into an ample store room. "Here, fir3t of all, is a mill which cost me two shillings ; it grinds my grain ; gives me the fresh est and most beautiful meal, save tolls and the profits. This is a bar rel of wheat. I buy the best and am sure that it is clean and good. It costs less than three cents a pound ; and a pound of wheat a day, you know is food enough for any man. We make it into bread, pies and cakes. Here is a barrel of potatoes. This is hominy- Here are some beans ; a box of tapioca, and maca roni. Here is a barrel of apples, the best I can find in Fulton market. Here is a box of sugar, and this is our butter-jar. Wc take a quart of country milk a day. I buy the re-t down town, by box or barrel, where I can get the best and cheapest. Making wheat eaten as mush or bread, aud made coarse without bolting aud potatoes, hominy or rice, thestaple; yon can easily see that a dollar a week for provisions is not only ample, but allows of an even variety. For the rest, we eat greens, vegetables, fruit and berries in their season. In the summer we have strawberries and peaches, as soon as thoy art ripe and good. Mary will get np a dinner from those materials at the cost of a shilling, better than the whole bill of fare at the Astor bone." I was satisfied, nere was comfort, intelligence, taste, moderate luxury, all enjoyed by an humble mechanic, who knew how to live at the coat I have mentioned. How much use less complaining might be saved how much more genuine happiness might be enjoyed how much evil and suffering might be prevented, if all the working men and Women were as prudent as William and Mary Carter. Phreneteaical Journal. Ilafty People. Oue of the oldest things to wit ness, if not one of the most dis agreeable to encounter, it the fac ulty some people bnve for taking offense where no offense is meant getting huffy' as the phrase goes, with little reason or withont mak ing themselves and everybody else uncomfortable, for nothing deeper than a mood or more than a fancy. Huffy people are to be met with, of all ages and every station, neither years nor condition bringing nec essary wisdom and unsuspicious nesa ; but we are bound to say thai the larger proportion will generally be found among women, and chiefly atnoug those who are of an uncer tain social position, or who are un happy in their circumstances, not to speak of their tompers. HntSneis, which seems to be a self-assertion in what may be called the negative form, and which the possessors thereof classify as a high spirit of sensitiveness, according as they are passionate or sullen, U ia reality the product of self-distrust. The per son who ha.s self-respect, and noth ing to fear, who is of an assured social status and happy private con dition, is never apt to take offense. Many and great are the dangers of intimacy with huffy people; and you are sure to flounder into the bog with them while innocently thinking yaa arc walking on a smooth aod firm road. The dangers of jesting are, above all, great. It may be laid down a- an absolute rule, which has no exception any where, that jw ItHfir person can bear a joke good-humoredly, or take it as it is meant. If you attempt the vory simplest form of chaffing, you will soon flud out onr mirtakeind because a thin-skinned belly person, has taken a plea-ant j?st a? a per sonal affront, and either btaaed out or gloomed sullenly, according to his or her individual disposition. MnrryiHs: tli Ieat. A a extraordinary marriage cere mony took place at Portsmouth, England, not a great while ago. A Miss Main waring, the daughter of an army officer, was about to bo married, and her trosseau had been prepared and ail other arrangements ninde, but a few days before the time fixed for the wedding she sick ened and died. Nevertheless, it was determined to go through the mar riage eereinony as for as possible before the interment. Her body was, therefore, taken in the eofSu to church, followed by her friends ia wedding costume, the deceased'.) wreath of orange blossoms bein placed at the head of the coffi a. Several clergymen otii'itfed. sad, after reading th? m trri Mf service, that tor funerals xri proceeded with, after which the cortege pro ceeded to Portsmouth cemetery, where the interment took place. Capt. J. A. Force planted iixycara ago a small grove of timber around bis house, and this fall in trimming Hp the timber be chopped the limbs, into stove wood and found to bis surprise that he had over seven cords of good wood. His trees will be all the better for the trimming and the Captain is several dollars ahead in fall. It pays to plant trees. St. Paul Phonofraph. Just after election a gentleman approached the defeated candidate with "How do you feel?" "Well, pretty much as Lazarus felt!" "Laz arus? Why what do you mean? "Lazarus was licked by dogs and so was I.

John Teidgen, of Battle Creek, received 1,000 sheep last Saturday night from the east. They were billed to Munson station. Afaduon Chronicle. Bodily labor alleviated the pain of the mind. Hence arises the happi ness of the poor. Never count on the favor of the rich by flattering either their vani ties or vices. It costs more to aveHge than to forgive.
