Ainoug ILe refugee who, it the lluie of
lbs flrnt French revolution, ought an m;
lum lu foreign countries, there wasayounu
nobleman from the south of Prance, n a mewl
Ilonrl d'Alblgnao. lie bad been left
orphan at an early age, and bit only In
heritance waa a little domain, that, under
favorable elrcumatauce, yielded him
yearly Income of perhaps two thousand
Irenes, which was little more than he re
anlred for hla curreut expense. When
therefore, one Uarlt, rainy day, bo arrtveu
in London, the aum total of bis ready mon
ey amounted to llttlo more than Ave thouv
and francs. With this sum, small as it
was, bad be any knowledge tf trade, or a.
thorough education, be might bave earned
at least a modest livelihood; but he bad
received only a common-school education
and as for his knowledge or agriculture, It
wts very inferior to that of the English
farmei of the time. Heile, bp was ao-
customeed to lead an easy life, and bad
luzurloDS bablts; It was no wonder there'
fore, that, before the end of Ibe year, his
funds were exhausted.
One morning, as he sat, In no pleasant
frame of mind, thinking oter bis condi
tlon, bis landlord, an avaricious huckster,
who even aurpassed tbe majority of bis uu
sultored countrymen in incivility, eulerod
tbe room. At first be glanced Inquisitive
y about the sparlment, and then he fixed
bla eye upon hla lodger wltb a disdainful
smile, nodding three or four times signin
canllv. as be said:
"It's Plain enough to be seen, M d'Al
blgnac, that your affairs are in a pretty bad
fix. and If I might be allowed a wora con
eerning them, I ehould nay they will not
be belter till you make up your mind to
nut your ahoulder earnestly to the wheel,
tnnob." replied the young Frenchman j

"Jest ao. Money is what you need. That
I know very well," returned tbe buvkste
"and aa for working, you ftol yourself
above It, while you have not wit enough to
make money In any other way."
"dlr I" cried tbe young nobleman, "bave
you come to insult mer"
"Come, come," replied Cornblll, "Ihero
Is no need of crying out so loud; It will
not holp mailers liny. Do you know Hint

You will net your money," replied
Henri ; "I havcllitis far In life ulways paid

I tsli.it 1 be wry clud; but when docs

As soon us my alfalfa aio In n heller

"And till then you pioposo to continue

"Tut I lul I sll don it nituhi und li t lis
lalk llki-Iwn .nisllilc incii," lemoulialcd
the huckster. "You hirdl see llntl I mean
well wlih you "
Curious to know III what way Ids laud-
loid's Inlprest In him Mould iiiaulrist II-
self, Henri sal down mid linked hint full
In the fate.
I need lilo-tuoilhy Hull to drive
round and sero my customeis wl'.h sege-

that tnuii ?"
'Will Iuhbtl aic you mad?" cried
D'Alblgnue, In doubt wliethci In; hud heard
"What else can you dot Nothing that I
can see," replied tho huckster, shruxultii!
his shoulder". "Think ll oxer I will give
on llll to-morrow evening to consider. If
you refuse, you need expect nothing more
from mo. And w hat you will do then in
this big city, without friends and without
means, Heaven only knows! Ilesldes, I
ball expect you to pay me before; you
loavo my house."
With thoso words he left the room. Henri
remained for a while, seated at the window.
considering what course to pursue lu his
motility ; then he lose and went to a res
taurant, wheio he was In tho habit or get
ting his dinner. Arrived there, ho took a
cat at a table ut which two elegantly-dress
ed gentlemen were alieady seatod, aud or
dered some roast-beef and a s.ilad, which
was all tho few small coins that still le
malned to him would pay for. Tho beef
he found eiilliely to his liking; the salad,
on the contrary, he pushed asido as abso
lutely unlit to be eaten.
Meantime, thrco more fashioiiable young
men tiftho world had seated themselves at
the tahlu. They smiled as ho piiheil tho
salad aside and nodded assent as ho said :
What an nbomlnab'o mess they plvo
you here under tho nnmo of salad I With
us, In France, a sshid Is a very different
"Then you aio it rieneliinaii, sir?" ask
ed one or the gentlemen, In a courtly tone.
Is It true that your countrymen aro the
adepts I havu heard they are In tho dress
ing of salads ?"
That Is one of the nits l.l whleh they
sro ceilalnly proiieicnl," lenllrxl the
Hut Hie secret Is, of coiuse, not known
to every oue; It la probably only In the
hands of professional cooks and epicures 7"
"Not at all," leplled Henri j "oery child
with us knows how to diess a salad tit for
king. True our 'poti erepo' Is a very
different oit of a vegetable from the bluer
lettuce that grows In Kogland."
"I fear you doour gardeners Injustice ilbo
leltuco they ralso is good uiioiikIi, It only
requires to bo proporly drossed."
Tho dlciisslnn was continued at souio
length, when one of the Kngllshmen turn
ed to D'Alt Iguac, and asked If ho would
not undertake to prepare a salad then and
them after tho French maimer.
"Corlalnly I why not?" replied Henri;
whereupon the waiter was called, and all
the nocessary ingredients were imme
diately ordered for tho dreaiing of a salad
a la Franealse.
Then the young nobleman went to work,
answering, tueautline, tbe questions of the
Englishmen with regard to Ids country
and bis impressions nfthotrs. And thus It
came that he told Ids Interlocutors his own
story that ho was an emigre, had exhaust
ed all his means, and was at a loss to know
what tu do, or which way to turn. In.due
time the salad wasiirussed, tasled and pro-
uounccd superb. Indeed, .oue of tho young
Englishmen was so well pleased that he
Insisted on testifying his appreciation ut
the Frenchman's art by presenting him
with a live-pound bank-note.
Henri very naturally, objecled at first to
accept it, but the Englishman would listen
to uo excuses, nnd hewastinally compelled
to yield. At parting, they took his ad
dress, and assured t I til that he would hear
from them again, D'Allilgnac returned to
bis lodgings in a much bettor frame nf
mind than ho had been for many days.
His first step was to satisfy bis Importu
nate landlord with the live pounds that
bad so forttiualely fallen into Ids hands;
his second, to look for other quarters. Tho
huckster was not a little chagrined to see
his tenant leave blm, but be made uo ef
fort to Induce hint lu remain. "We shall
see," he thought; "you will lie glad to
couie back tn me and .accept my offer If
uot to-day nor to-morrow, then later. Re
turn you are suio to, for what can you,
friendless aud inunoylcss, do In London?"
Henri found, In the same street, lu (ho
houso of a weaver, a modest apartment
thatauswored bis purpose. He now be.
gan to look diligently about for Home
means of earning a livelihood, and thought
no more of the salad adventure until ho
was reminded of it In a manner that, In bis
Impoverished condition, was meat agree
ableFour or live days bad elapsed, when,
one mornlug, ho received a note In
which lie was politely requested to do the
writer the favor to come, on a certain day,
at a specified hour, to one of the handsom
est mansions lu Grosvenor squal e, lu order
tha the guests at a large dinner-party
might ptotlt by hla skill In salad-dressing.
Qrosveuor squaro In those days was the
most fasblonablo part of London. Once
known In that neighborhood, and Ills fame
could uot fall tu ex loud throughout the city.
Theyotiug Frenchman bad sufficient sa
gacity to see (bat his skill lu dressing salads
might lo made to retrlevo bis fortunes; lie
thorcToro spent the tlmo lhat intervened
between the receipt of the note and tbe day
on which be was to visit the square in
making some experiments, which finally
resulted to bis entire satisfaction. Ho was
punctual, and found tbe principal ingredi
ents for the dish be was to prepare await
ing his arrival. In a little box which he
carried with him be brought various con
diments he deemed necessary to enable
blm to acquit bimselfiu the best possible
manner. He was entirely successful, and
won the hlgheit praise; but what gratified
blm most was tbe liberal recompense bo
received for his trouble, which strengthen
ed bis determination to reap whalovor pe
cuniary advanlago fiotn his art ho could.
Henri's hopes nnd expectations wore
more than realized. His second so-called
Kalian salad did much mom toward mak
ing lilm kuowu than ho anticipated. In n
very few days he iccelved unnther Invita
tion, or rather order j soon afterward
another, and within it month II was not
cousldcied "the thing" at a gala-dinner to
offer one's guests a salad that wa not dress
ed by tho young Ficnch tioblctiiau.
And, oue day, not long after tills happy
turn lu his affairs, U'Alblgnau paid a visit
to his lorincr landloid, who, as soon as lie
leeovered from the surprise the young
man's triumphant mien occasioned, nskod,
In hli biusqup. manner:
"Well, Intvo you come to your senses at
last? Ha o you decided to accept my pro
posal, and peddle my vegetables lor me?"
"N'o, I have not decided to peddle your

"What a miserable sort of lile is this I

The IkioIh thus referred to belonged to
tbe magistrate's clerk, who had takeu
them off for his own comfort. At this
speech they made long legs at oajh other,
and the right said to tho left one, "Brother,

also, exclaiming : "Heaven bo praised,

"Ho Is surelv In Jest," thought the clerk,
who made an awkward bow and departed,
his boots creaking loudly,
Then the magistrate went back into his
sitting-room, but as lie left (he door open,
the boot-jack could see all that went on In

In his deepest bass: "Ilo'soff, People of

under peculiar circumstances. Her first
husband was, from all account", a man or
violent temper and unbounded caprice.
with whom it was utterly Impossible for
anybody, however well disposed, to live
In peace. Aftcroue or two separations aud
reunions, they finally parted permanently,
and 11 was soon alter this event that Jack
son then a poor and unknown lawyer in
the backwoods village of Nashville asked
her to share bis raihor unpromising for
tunes. A divorce was procured through
what was thoughtto bo tho proper channel,
aud tley wore united. The first months or
their wedded lffo were spent in Natchez,
and not until their return to Tennessee
was It known that the court which granted
the divorce had uo authority to execute
such an Instrument which we believe, as
the law then stood, could only Issue from
the Legislature or Virginia. Uut bo thia
as it may, the legal forms wero at last ful
ly complied with, and to put an end as it
was hoped lo all possible misconstrue'
Hon, tbe marriage cermony was ngain per
formed. Had Jackson remained an ob
be ore man, Iho mailer would never have
been revived, hut as soon as ho took the
first stops In the career which was to land
him in the presidential chair, jealousy uu
loosed tbe hands nf calumny, and enemies
who could find no nobler plan of attack,
struck at him through the bosom of his
wife. This.wasa sin which he never could
and never would forgive; and whoever
had bioathed a word against tho fair fame
of that Idolized object, might tool assured
or having made an eternal and Inexorable
roe of one who came rairly up tu the John
sonian standard or a "good tutor." Tho
duel w lib Dickinson, had its re tl origin hero,
Dickinson was a promising young man,
belonging to a b!uly respectable family lu
Nashville, and Iho Juulor or Jackson by
several ycai. Attached lo a different and
hcslile faction, ho imagined a rivalry where
none really existed, and, being In tho hab
it or drinking loo 'rcely, occasionally made
remarks which would uot bear re; ctitlon
Of course they were repeated, and to tho
one of all others most deeply interested.
When tho Hrt offenso of this sort trans
pired, Jaeksor went to Dickinson's father
in-law, (old what bo had beard, and bog'
ged bin. In guard, If possible, against a
similar occurrence In the fatttre. Tho
warning was of no avail, for when the
wine was again In tho asceudaut, Dickin
son throw out tbe same slurs nnd this lime
they cost him his Lout's blood. The duel
ostensibly originated lu a borso race, which
by tho way, was never run; but the ani
mus of II, so far as Jackson was concern
ed, lay in tbe fact that Dickinson bad spok'
en ill of Mrs. Jackson, It is unnecessary
to repeat all the dotalls of tbe meeting
which, was Indeed as the Post says, "one
of the most terrible on record." Dickln
son was a dead shot, could hit a half-dollar
at ten paces, kill birds on the wing, nnd
perform other miraculous feats with the
pistol. Ho was as bravo and cool ns he
was skilful, and never entertained a doubt
as to iho combat. Tho arrangement was
that when tho word was given they could
lire as soon as they pleasod, Jackeou
knowing Dickinson's superior quickness
with his weapon, resolved not to nttompt
to get tbe first fire, bat to lake the chances
for a second. Tho luitant tho signal was
shouled Dickinson fired. Tbe dust tlew
from the breast or (bo loo?e fitting black
frock coat which Jackson wore, but ho
stood (here like a pillar of udainant appar
ently unharmed, Dickinson started back
In horror and amazement, exclaiming,
"My God I hare I missed him?" Illsslern
and unrelenting antagoutst took deliberate
aim and pulled the trigger. The pistol did
not rospond. He looked and found It was
only at half-cock. A second time he took
aim, and, as the sharp crack rang out
among me suem woous, wueru tue ueauiy
sceno was laid, Dickinson tottered and fell
Into the arms of bis friend. He died the
same night. Jackson was ablo to mount
bis borse and ride home next day barely
able, for (he bullet, wblcb seemed to miss
blm, had really passed through tbe fleshy
part of bis breast and cut tbe breast-bone,
Ills shoes were full ol blood when ho walk
ed from tho In! n I field, but he concealed
the lad, as he tali!, "hecauso he did not
want Dickinson lo have tho satisfaction of
knowing that he had hit hlmatall." In
nnswer tn the question how he could, alter
receiving such a shock, retain his steadi
ness of nerve, ho replied ; "I bellevu X
should havo killed him bad bo shot mo
through Iho brain." The wound nevor
healed properly; II was the occasion of
frequeul hemorrhages In late years, and ul
timately tausid his death. There Is no ev
idence g'dng to show that Jackson over re
pented of Ibis duel, Luug nltcrwnrds In
deed, only n leiv weeks holore he died a
friend visiting Ills sick chamber happened
to pick up nn old pistol lying upon the
mantel. Tho keen-eyed Invalid saw the
movement, and remarked quiolly: "That
is the pistol with which I killed Mr. Dick

Tho.o i-lio saw Mrs. JajLsou in hor
youth uy thai ut lhat period she was a
plump a id quite putty brunette. Hut In
middle je the plumpness Increased until
nil s triisj of u waist had disappeared, aud
the (larlr. complexion become still darker,
until It wits utmost tho lint of venerable
mahogany. I i plain wolds, she was. a
liorl, fit and remarkably common-looking
old woman ungiaceful, of course, and not
at all versed lu the way of polite society.
Her husband, on the contrary, though
pure and angular In figure, and quite as
deslllUto of culture .as bis wife, was oou
fessodly oue ol the most elegant gentle
men of the day. His public life, particu
larly after tho battle of New Orleans,
brought li I ii i into close commuulcatlon
with the gay world, aud bis manners con
tributed as much as his fame to make him
the center or every circle In which he
mingled. Uut neither the sweet smiles nor
Hie sweeter words or tbe beauties who
crowded around blm .over made blm for
an Instaul forget much less prove false to
the mistress of bis soul. Even his most
Intimate friends could not discover by any
word or act on bis pait. that bo was con
scious of bis wife's physical disadvantages
aud lack of what is called good breeding.
Tu him she was uot old nor ugly, not ig
norant or awkvvaid but always youny, al
ways haudsome, always the embodiment
of brightness and grace. No knight lhat
ever laid lance lu rest was more devoted
tu tbe fair lady wlieye colors be wore, than
was Jackson to the ancient dame who bore
his name. Sho was tbe only buman being
who could stem the torrent of bis foarful
passion. A word from her Hps, a glance
from her eye, aud tbe iron nun, blazing
with wrath aud apparently as untamable
as the Hon of tho jungles, became as tame
as a lamb. Ho loved her from the very
depths of his stormy natnre, and because
he loved her she could transform tbe storm
Into ncalm. One might Infer from the ex
tent of this influence over Bucb a charac
ter, that Mrs. Jackson was, what we might
term "a strong mlndgd woman," But she
was far removed from that questionable
honor. Too late Thomas IX. Benton, In a
book wulch is a much better monument to
his memory than the bronze abortion In
Lafayette pirk, gives a charming picture
of "Aunt Rachel," as be affectionately
calls her. In this sketch, drawn by a lov
ing baud, she Is represented asan extreme
ly modest and unassuming person, who
never lost her native simplicity of thought
and action in attempting to keep pace with
the rising fortunes of her busbaud. When
tho most brilliant triumph of tbe war bad
lifted him high above all competitors, and
when that triumph had been supplement
cd by his election to tho first office in the
gill of his countrymen, she was the sanio
amiable, sensible, unaffected woman as
when they lived together in a log cabin
and had nothing to distinguish them from
their humblest neighbors. To her be was
never "tho goneral" but always "Mr. Jack
son," and sho valued bis wonderful success
in life for the pleasure it gave blm, aud
not for the glory reflected upon her. A
sinceic and ardent Christian, a fond wire,
ii true friend, n constant aud liberal bene-
factor of the poor, she faithfully discharg
ed her duties to OoJ and man, and found
therein her highest happiness. Alt who
knew her loved "Aunt Rachel," as snch
women, from their rarity, deserved to be
lovtu ; and when she died there was
mourning uot only lu the stalely "Her
mllago," but In every negro hut for miles
Jackson, as we have reiiiarkod,. never en
tliely recovered from tho blow which bis
wile's death Inflicted. He went to the
White House In many respects a changed
man. Ho laid aside, lo a great extent
those tremendous oalbs which used to
make Iho air of Tennessee turn blue; bo
grew softor, tenderer, more ready to for
give than in former years, and was, for
her sake, tbe firm and Indomitable champ
ion of ail slandered women. He broke np
his cabinet in sustaining Mrs. Eaton
though thero was probably moro truth than
slander in hor case and would never lis
ten to or countenance any of that so-called
"gossip" which delights In Insinuations
against female vlitne. Because bis wife
was pure, be believed and was proad to
believe all ber sex as pure as she. lie

before retiring he laid it on the table be

In a few weeks thousands of children
will bo leaving the hot, dusty clllst for the
cool, green country. As long as tho charm

through field and meadow, over the hill-
Ide and up the sleep took. Their oager
eyes will spy out All tho floral boaultcs or
tbe forests and Ihcy vrl'l bring borne arm-
fills or the lovoly Ireainroi. But tbe flow
ers and ferns will wither and be thrown
way. The children will miss iho excite
ment of the city, and beforo msny days of
conntry have pasted, the patient mother or
long-nfl"rlng nurso will often hear the
question, "What can wo do now ?'
Ono very delightful plan It to set tho
children (o making collections of all the
wild flowers they can find, and preserving
llicm for future enjoyment. No oxtenslve
outfit lif needed for pressing tho specimens.
Let the mother on packing her Saratoga
runk not forget lo pat In several volumes
of Patent Offlce Reports, even at the risk of
crowding out ona or (wo much boruffled
dresses. Au old Adas for ferns, is also
ery convenlnl. I do not know why It Is
that the Patent Ofllco Reports aro to much
better for Ibis purpose than any other book,
unless It be tbat they aro to dry that tboy
moro readily absorb the moisture of the
flowors, but I know from experience that
they answer the purpose, admirably.
Lot tbe ebilaren oemmeno with the very
first flowers they find. They shoatd col
lect both leaves and blossoms, and It Is
well to press two spctmtns of each kind.
Show them how te lay the flowsrs careful
ly and smoothly Into the protslng-book,
with several panes between them, and
when all are In place they should put a
brick or Mono on the book. The flowers
should he changed to another book In a
day or two. and tbe first book should bo
food np with tht leaves well opened tbat It
may becomothoroughly dried and ready for
use again. The Hills ones, after one or
two lessons, will nted ns assistance. En
courage them lo see how many different
flowers they can find. Their bright eyes
will detect little elarry blossoms in tbe
grass, whore before they never thought of
looking, and every excurslou to tbe woods
will afford tbem new spoclniens for the
Herbarium that It to be.
The habit of observation thus formed Is
almost an edneatlon In itself, while so
moch pleasure Is combined with It that the
children never grow weary of the under
taking. By tbe time tboy return to tbe
city tbey will have a choice collection lo
transfer to lbs Blank Book tbat Is to be
the permanent home or their treasures, and
many a long, dlimat wintry day can be
shortened by spending a few hours la care
fully fastening the preserved specimens to
tbo pages of tbe Herbarium. This can be
done with a little maollage, or by ontting
sills In the leaf of tho book anddrawingtbe
stems through. ,
Ferns, also, can be collected and preserv
ed In the same way. Theie are lovely for
winter decorations, and tbe children can
bardly collect too mtny, especially of tbe
Maiden's Hair vsrltty. July la the best
month for collecting ferns, and tbey need
to bo pressed a longtime or they will curl
up when nted In vates or baskets. If press
ed In July, It Is well to keep tbem In the
pressing book until tbey are wanted for
use In tbe fall. A basket of ferns and au
tumn leaves, tastefully arranged, Is ono or
the most beautlfal ornaments ef any room
In winter. A collection of small fern
Irav - might also be made for the Herbari
Thr different varieties of leaves will al
so intcre-. tbe children and older people
toe. A Collection of all the different forest
leaves Is well worth looking over, and
they are bo easily pressed tbat the juveniles
will lake special pleasure In collecting and
preserving tbem, and tbalr wide-open
eyes will discover new varieties where,
nntll tbelr attention has (has been called to
the subject, all would bave looked alike.
If Ibe stay In the ountry Is prolonged
until (be foliage puts on Ut anlumn colors,
there will be little need to encourage tbo
children to collect the bright leavos. They
will come from tbe woodt with their arms
laden wltb purple and fcarlot and golden
branches, and every leaf will seem too
beautiful to throw away. By all means
preserve thorn quantities or them. They
will gladden the eyea or your poor neigh
bor who could not afford to go to tbe coun
try, and wbo has bad only a Tar-off glimpse
of the glory of tbo autumn. Let tbe chil
dren fill all tbelr books with them any
books they have solltlle moisture In them
tbat they do not need the Patent Offlce
Reports to dry them. Get all you can
maple and red-oak and sumac and long
(railing vines. Send the children for bas
kets full of tbe feathery seed vessels of the
wild clematis wblcb grows In all the fence
eorners from Maine to Minnesota. Then
carry Ibein all back to your homes In the
Some cold day next November wben tbe
sky Is gray, and the first snow It falling,
and tbe wlndt art walling around your
houte, and tbe children partake of tbe
spirit of tbe occasion, and are all out of
sorts and don't know what to do wltb
themselves then bring out your autumn
leaves. Fat soma newspapers on a table
and some old clothes on the children. Pour
some boiled Unseed oil In a cup and give
each child a little paint brnsb and tell blm
or her, aa tbo east may be, to cover each
side of every leaf wltb a thin costing or
linseed oil. TMs will bring out tbe color
and preserve them from fading.
While the children are to employed you
can get your ferns and your clematis, and
you can arrange all Into baskols, vases,
wreaths, or any way yon please. Tbe chil
dren at tbey work will remlnc each other
of the spot In tho woods wbero they found
