" >h, Hoburton is a bright young

is no doubt about that, and he may b<

The speaker went to the window anc

"Yes." said Mrs. Merivale, "and i

As their daughter .atc i*rew in year
and stature she bec i\nc so dccidcdl
beautiful that the parents1 hopes grac
ually centered in her. She had mau
admirers, but Jack Hoburton was tl)
favorite. Jack iv as a teady youn
man, good!,.oking, weil' lucated an
the possessor ol a nest egg that in tl
minds of Kate's worldly parents woul
b'j sure to hatch unbounded WMlU
The parents were gracious and paved tl
way to an excellent understanding b

"Yes," said Mr Merivale 1
daughter, "Jack Hoi) irton will ma e
model husband, one ilia' will lend
elevate the family station. That's h
it always should be. I would be vc
much pained to have you marry anyo
poorer than ourselves."
"Why, papa," said Kate in reply,
am not going to murry Jack because
has a little money. I am going to mai
him because I love him."
"That's right," laughed her fath
"but the money is a requisite that nv
not be despised, for without it lc
would be a very tame affair, indeed.
Jack were below you in worldly etui
there would be a grotesqueness al?
love that would soon destroy it

About two years after Jack's enga
ment to Kate, ami a year previous to
proposed celebration of the nuptii
Mr. Merivale startled the bosom of
family one day by suddenly enteri
their midst greatly flustrated and j
spiring from every pore. He threw h
self into a chair, and after prolon,
silence that nearly frightened tbe mot
and daughter out of their senses
formed them that at last "the goal
"What goal?" they cried.
"At last," said he, "we shall rise
our proper station. Henceforth we h
no need to envy Robertson. The cr
tors who have dogged me for the
ten 3ears shall be relegated along i
bills marked 'paid' back to their mis
level. In fine," be added, "we
"Explain, pray explain," they gas;
"It's the Arapahoe raine," said
"We arc worth a cool hundred thous
and people will think it a million."
Thc news of Mr. Merivale's sue
acquisition of wealth spread rapidly
people exaggerated thc reports, as
had anticipated. New friends spi
up on every side. Wherever Kate
peared she was more than ever the cc
of attraction.
Mr. Merivale began to plau change
a grand scale. A lot was purchased
lo Robertson's and preparations
i to
made for the erection of a magnificent
manvion. There were to be carriages,
servants, gravelled walks, horses, dogs,
fountains?in short, all the attribute* of
One day, after a long interview with
his wife, Mr. Merivale summoned Kate.
"I wish to talk with you about that fel?
low Hoburton," said he. "Yew do not
suppose, now, that he will try to hold
you to the engagement, do you?" he
inquired, nervously.
"What!" exclaimed the daughter,
reddening; "do you mean that he should
forsake me because we have been for
"I mean," returned the father, more
coolly, "that since our eire unstances
have materially changed wc should regu?
late ourselves accordingly. My principle
is the same as I have always endeavored
to inculcatea Ino one should ever marry
below his or her station. Oar statiou
bas risen and those who were once our
social equals are nj longer so. Person?
ally, Hoburton is an estimable young
fellow, but I must insist that the pro
jected alliance be broken off at once."
If Kate gave her fathor a look of scorn
it was lost on him, for he continued
without looking up; "You have always
been a dutiful daughter, aud I have im?
plicit confidence in your obeying my
wishes. We have asocial statu* to main?
tain. It would be 'flying in the face of
Providence' to disregard the, advantages
which our altered circumstances present.
This you would be doing were you to
marry a poor man."
"Why, father," exclaimed the daugh?
ter, "Mr. Hoburton is by uo mcan3 poor.
He has, as you know, over $10,000, and
with the assistance that you mijrht now
afford bc could easily add to it."
"Ah," said her father, "you forget
that while he has $10,000, you will have
ten times that. He is altogether tot
many rounds in the ladder below you,
and thc sooner he is informed of the
change the better for all concerned. No
no," said he, interrupting her as she tva*
about to contiuue the argument. "I cai
never consent to the marriage. I sboulc
commit a flagrant breach ol duty were '
to allov? the equilibrium to be thus dil*
turbed. After you have thought th<
matter over candidly you will sec thai
my position is the only one tenable."
The daughter sat for some time aftei
her father hal left the room, over
whelmed with grief at his proposition
She thought of Jack struggling alon^
in tho West to prepare for her a home,
aud tho idea of abandoning him jus
because her father had acquired wealtl
was not to be tolerated. Even if sh<
had not loved him so dearly she coule
not be so base. She went to her rooa
and poured forth her grief in an agout
of tears.
Fiually she gatherel up sufTkica

two men with eyes and mouth wideopei |
with astonishment. At a motion from !
Mr. Hoburton he disappeared into aside '
room, wdicre he sat for some time with
eye and car alternately at the keyhole.
"Mr. Merivale," said Hoburton, "you
are laboring under a mistake; this is my
place of business. I had no intention of
following you, although, to bc sure, I
expected to meet you here in accordance
with your letter of last week. Herc it ,

Though somewhat chagrined, Mr.

Honse Plauts uni Health.
An interesting experiment was recently
performed at Harvard University, says
the Boston Herald, for the purpose of
finding out just how much carbonic ac d
is exhaled by plants at night. A num?
ber of plants were put into a glass cav;e
from which all air was excluded except
such as had first passed through a chemi?
cal which freed it from all traces of car?
bonic acid. A constant stream of
purified air was made to flow among the
plants all night, and pass out through
another chemical which absorbed what
carbonic acid the air had taken from tho
plants. By testing the second chemical
lt was easy to find how much caibonic
acid had been discharged by the plants
during tho night. It was found that the
i amount was much less than had beeu
I supposed. The quantity of gas giveu
J off by a room full of plants is actually
les* than would bc geuerate J by a can?
dle burning the same length of time.
It is proved theu that so far as car?
bonic acid is concerned, plants, instead
of being harmful, ore on the whole bene?
ficial, since during the day they help to
purify the air by absorbing from it th<
carbonic acid which is so harmful ti
people. lu regard to the kind of plant?,
though, ? little care should be used
especially if any person in thc house i<
very susceptible to odors. Heavil;
scented flowers in a sleeping room an
apt to cause headache and sleeplessness
and to a sick person a strong odor is stir
to be disagreeable. Aside from this co i
sideration, house plants are desiraul
wherever they will thrive.
