ELEANOR’S SACRIFICE. “Miss Gray !" RleMnor (iray glanced up from the book that she was reading (o answer Mrs Ariindi-I's cyll. Eleanor was a fair-haired, pitle fkict-d elrl. whn iivt-d at the stsle y uiaiietou of the Arundela as companion to Its widowed mistress. Mrs. Arundel and h*‘r son Hurry were the last of their race, and the Udy wns glad to have yountf comp.tnioufthip. when .Miss (\t»y hid app led for the Kilnatinn whl h had hem advertised, her sweet fnce and quiet. liijC manners won the old ludy's heii*t, and Eleanor, who wn» a friendles» orphan, became i mcmiter of the Aroudul household. The mistress of the house had forgotten that It was "tempting IVovideiire'* t* thu^w her •on In dally contact with his fair-fuced girl; and to-day she had awHkcned to the bitter knowledge that Harry had given his heart to Eleanor Gray. Standing at tlie wtnfow of her wn room, as she summoned her '^companion'’ r. 'va the garden, whither sbe liod gone to pars a few leisure moments in rending, the high bred, arlstoi ratlc face of the old lady was bard and stern and troubled. ^'Closing her book, Eleanor (Sprang to her feet, and hastened up the luoad wtilk which led to a side entrance to the mansion. ^*l)ld you call me, Mrs. Arundel, T' she queried. *'Yes. I want to have a quit>t talk wllh you. Sit down, Eleanor—lhere. now I will begin at •nee, to get over it. Eleanor, U it true that there Is an attachmeul between niy son and yourself?” Eleanor's face crlmsoncd; the golden head Wat bowed; ahe contrived to glam e np, at Inst, and her llpi quivered »a she answered : “We love each other, Mis. Arundel t’’ Ml'S. Arundel's face was pule aud her eyes ahone with anger. "And do you think it nn honornhle net, Eleanor Sray,” she cried bltli rly, *‘to steal iuto a peaceful home ta brlnt; trouble and sor row?'* Do you not know that marriage with you woald ruin my boy forever ?’* Eleanor's blue eyes fluHhetf. "I do not camprehend, Mrs. Arundel,'* sho answered coldly. “Do you not see th^t for hlin to wed poverty would bring.him naught bul but tnlHery ? \Vu are not as wealthy na wu were; and llarry chu marry an heiress—would have done so. had you never crossed hi« path ! .Mifts Whlttlo^tou Is worth a million, and she loves inv sun; 1 dU covered that, by a'chltn(, last niKht. He, too, would have loved and inurrlod her tuit for this unfortunale attucbiu'Mit. Hurry is too honor.i- ble to break his word with you, since It MM tuis you are already butroiiied, ami we may end our Mvea iu poverty—that you mny have the hasband of your chot'e. And Eleanor, I am uot acuastomed to poverty aa you are; it—it will kill me," Eleanor (irft)’arase to her fcef, and drew a little dlatanee away fiom the lady. **Mra. Arundel,” aho said, her voice trem- btlng In spite of herself, lhoti;;h she tried haul ta be calm,” “yon shall never sulTer poverty on my account. So. although it bienks my heart, allhou^^h you can never diram whut I am sufluring. [will give your son back bit freedom; aud I will away fioni hero at once.’* Mrs, Arundel arose, aud going to Eleanor, stooped and kissed her. “.My dcur,” she said softly, 'Mt will save ua !" “But, J/i'A Arnnde),*' Elennor faltered brok enly, “llarry must not kn>w--inu.st not see me agalo; indeed t could not bear it! Let me write him a note, ifiid tell Mm tbut he is free—> that it (• best so—and thr'i) 1 will go uway. U you will let t!:e cari-liige take me to the station, 1 will leave here to-night. I will go back to Brookvllle; I have a friend there—Mrs. Penn; she will reoelTo roc, and 1 can remain with her until 1 obUiin another situation.” **Qod bless you!'* sobbed Mrs. Aruudcl; “you aro a noble woman.” But she did not (treain of the agony which it caused Eleanor to five up Hurry Arundel, tho one love of her life. It wus almost muie than •he coiild bear; but once dccldud that she was doing right, she nerved herself for the saoi* flee. She wrote a brief note to llarry. and told Ub the simple truth, but cost no blame opon hla mother. She gave him no addre»s; aho did not wish him to know her destination; and so that night, she turned her ba k upon t|)S old, bapp/ life, and went forth Into tho u w one, which held do love or happiness lu II. She thought that she was doing rUht. i^he would leave him to marry Miss VVhlttlngton; •he wonl4 oevur drag bin down to poverty and mliery; the lovsd him too well for that. She wont to Diookville—a letlred country town. Her friend received her gladly, and Eleauor settled down to a quiet life, nnill one day the quiet was aummarily expelled. A newspaper advcrtiieoient met her eye; an advertisement Inquiring the whereabouts o( Cbarlea Gray, or his heirs. Charlea Gray was her father'a name, aud full of a atrange, wild hope, Eleanor hastened to the adjacent city and to the cfSce of the Arm who had adver* Used. The result of the whole natter was-It waa quite like a fairy tule—Eleanor Gray fonnd heraeif, bainir the last of her name, the huirosa to all Ibo wealth which, unauspeeted by her, bad long been, by righta, the property of the Gray family. Aud a few weeka later Eleanor, accompanied by Mra. Penn, went to Europe for ft year*a oojoiro. It waa nearly two years sIbco Eleanor Gray had left Mrs. Arundel'a hooa«~half heart brukoo, but ttrro In her datemloaUoa to aiako the saertAce which ahe dcemel It her dnty to make for the eako of tho man whom ibo lo?ed ~and who, no matter what aepartod them, aho loved •till. So she eame bsek to pretty Brookvillo, pur chased an elegant ?llla, and Inatalled herself and Mra. Peon therein. She bad loarned Iho lessou of resignation, and her life had grown very peaceful. Since it bad been fur llarry'a good^for hissske. i.he conld boar it I One day business called Eleanor to the city where the Arundrls lived; and walked alowly doarn a retired street, sho came face to faeo with Harry. Ue looked pale and worn, and there waa something about him which aug* gdsted to Eleanor that he had had aeeu sorrow. He paused atiruptly with a low cry. *'Eluanarl“ he esclaimed, eitending both hands; “thank God I I have found you at fast!“ For he had searched everywhere far her. Ue had no dream of her changed fortunes; aud Eleanor's plain attire tnado no revelation of the truth. Thi-n she remembered Miss Whitting> ton and drew buck. **Your wife, Mr. Arundel I'* abo ventured tItnUlly; "she Is well ?” Harry'a face wore a look of unfeigned anr- prise. "K!eanor I" ho cried agitatedly, “what do vou mean ? 1 have no wifw I’* Fora moment Eleanor eould nH control herself sulHeiently to utter a word, but stood gaKlng at theyonng man Inspeeeblet^ wuuder. 'I'iien at lant. he faltered: “i)«» you not know? Is it ponslble that yon hnv^ not hetird all, Ehanor? Our fortune is and we are p>or. When 1 found that it h:«d been my inoiher's mistaken intention to make Mi»s Wittingtun tay wife, 1 could not. In honor, or In accordance with iny own heart's dictates, eons nt ; for my heart is yours, and has always been in your keeping, Eleanor, 1 am poor now; my wealth is no longer an ob stacle; will you be my wife, darling? I can work for you P' “JJut yojr mother ?” faltered KJeanor. softly. "She will, 1 fear, never be aatlstlcd with your choice.” "She always loved you, Eleanor.” ha cried; "and once my wife everything will he rlgnt !)j not r*fuse me. darling; indeed 1 lovo you with all my heart I” And as the result of Harry'a pleading, the two went to a small church, not far away, and were made htishsad and wife. # ♦ * # # Mra. Arundel was sitting alone In the small and dreary apartment which had been her own Kjnce the Atnndel fortune had raellvd away like dew before the morning sunshine. 7 here waa a tap at the door, nnd Harry entered, a •light, graceful figure leaning on his rrm. ' Mother,’* he said quietly, *'this la my wif*.” Mrs Arundel staggered to her feet. ‘•Eleanor tiray !’* she ejaeulated. EleitiHtr wenl to her side nnd kUaud her. ‘*l>frtr Mia. Aiundel,’* ahc said scfilv. “I will try to make hi u happy~b«dlevo me I And now eonie—we are going to take you for a drive.” Overwhelmod wllh afttonUhment, Mrs. Arundel jiDoH-ed her.'sel/ to br Jctl down to th» eurrl iu> which was in walllnL^ and so (he three dioveavvay. 'I'he earri.igo aloppd before lui ele:;.u»t oiaiisloii of ereainv stone. Misi. Arun del ua/.od upon il iu bewilderment. "Whv.” she cried, nonleiingly, “what are you slopping for ? This was our old home— indeed I eaunut go In there. U would kill me to enter thiit houce, w here wo Were all so happy, bef«irc we lost all !” liirry glanced at his wife, "Eieanor,” he said gi-nily, "I am sorry that you have Seen lit to como here, for iny luolher’s Bake.” Eleunor made no answer. She placed In Mrs, /lriind--rs hands a* le^al looking docu ment; and being opened, It proved to be a deed of nift of the .\rundul mii!i»lou. "Ele^inor!" cried Hurry nnd his mother in concert, “svhut doe^ thia mean?'* "It means," »hc answered softly, that you did not inurry ft pnor womnn afier aU, Harry. I am very w»Mllhy-nnd my chief hupplnesa •hull be in tn.iking you and youra happy! Come, let us go into the house, it la prep;ired for yMi, an«l is to ho our home henceforth!” Hairy .\rundcl ctiuglit his nife In his arms, "^i^od bless you, my darling!" he mur mured; and his mother echoed his words hearilly. God (/uf bless them all; ft^r a happier, tnore united family never existed than the three who passed their lives at tho lovely home which had been purchased by the young wife. So Eleanor’s fortune proved a blessing, and her sacrlllce endeared them to each other be yond words to express. A BASHFI^ MAN. TIIR GRi:.iT SBNSATION III; IMtODUCBD IN A UKI* DAI. CIIAMIIBU. Senator Sebastian of Arkansas was a native Of Hickman county. Tcnn. On one occasion a member of Congress waa lamenting hU baah- fulnesAand awkwardness. '*Why,'* auld the Senator from lUckencack, "you don*t know whal bashfulness Is. Let me tell you a story and when I get through I will stand the bob if you don't agree that you never knew any> thing about bashfalness ond its baneful effects. I was the most bashful boy west uf the Alle- Khenlos. 1 wouldn't look at a girl, much less •peak to a maiden; but for all that I fell dos* peritely Iu luva with a aweet, beiutlful neighbor girl. It waa a doslrablo match on both aides, and the old folks saw the drift, and fl.Ted It up. 1 thought 1 should die Just think ing of it. 1 wss ft gMwky, ftwkward couutiy lout about nineteen years old. She wssaolo« telllgent, refined and fairly well educated girl in a country and at a tlmo when tho glria had superior advantages, and were, therefore, superior In calture to the boys. 1 flxed tho day as far aa I couM have pat It off. 1 lay awako la a cold perspiration aa the time drew near, and ehivered with agony aa 1 thought of tho terrlblo ordeal. Tho dreadful day came. I went through with the programme aomehow la a dazed, con fused, mechanical sort of way, liko ao auto matic booby through a supper whero I could eat nothing, and through auch gamea aa "poa^um pie,*' “elUer Phvebe/* and all that sort of thing. The gueata one by one departed and my hair began to atand on end. Beyond the awful curtain of lala lay the terrible on* known. My blood grow cold and boiled by tarns. 1 felt like fleeing to th« woods, apend* log the uighi iu tlic baiu, leaylug for tho west ttOTor to roturv. I waa iceplf 4tfol«d to Bftlllft. I lofod bor bftMor thftft ft «ftn kl«ki but thfti drHdfttI ordtal—1 coaid aot, I darod not atand It. Flaally tho laat guoat waa gone, the brtdo rotfiod, iho faailly icono to bed, and I waa loft ftloB*->horror of horrora, alono with the old Bftn. “4obo,'* iftl«l ho, “yftu can tako that candlo, you will And your rftoa Jnat ovor thU. Good night, John, aod •ay the Lord baft mer^y oi jonr aonl,'* iod with a mlachlevoaa twlnklo of bla flno gray oyo, tho old man left tbo room. 1 sontally aald amen to hla “//oavcn belp yon,** and and when I beard him etoao a dUlant door, I ataggered to ny foot and aelaod tho farthing dip witb anorvoBO grip. I atood for aomo mlnutea contemplating my terrible fato, aftd the Inevitable and apeedy doom about to over whelm me. I know that It eould not be avoided but yet I hea'tated to meet my fate like ft man. 1 atood ao long that three lovo-lottera bad grown on tho wick of tbo tallow dip and ft winding aheet waa decorating tbo aide of tbo brass candlestick. A hsppy thought atrnek mo, I baatlly climbed the stair, marked the position of tbft landing and the door of the bridal chamber. I would have died before 1 would have diarobed In that holy chamber, where awalled mo a treuibllng and beantlful girl, ft bluahing maiden, ‘‘clothed npon** with hor own beauty and modesty, and her anowy rabo do nult. 1 would make the usual preparations without, blew out the light, open the door and frlendl? night would shield my shrinking modesty and bashfulness and grateful dsrknasa at least mitigate the horror of the situation. It waa soon done. 1‘reparationa for retiring wero few and simple In their character In Hidkman, although consisting of disrobing, and owing to scare! y of cloth In those days man waa somewhere near the Adamic State when he w.-is prepared to woo aweet elecp. Th^t dresd* ful hour hftd come; 1 waa ready. I blew out the light, graoped the door knob with ft deathly grip and a nervoua clutch; one mo ment and It would bo over. One moment and it wasn't over, by a d——n night 1 leaped within, and there around a glowing hickory fire, with c.tudlca br/gbtly burning ou the mantel and bureau, waa the blushing bride, surrounded by the six lovely bridcsmaida. VISIONS oV HEAVEN. 1)1!. TAI.MAP.K AXSWKKS TIIK QIIKSTION AT TltK TAnKliNACI.K—KVKIiYllODV IIAI’I’Y AN1)I>()IN(1 INTllK NRXT Woni.l) WHAT TIIKY DID IN THIS. At tho Hi'noklyii Tub(>rn»cle on Jiint! the 4th, tho Uev. Dr. Talinut'e |iriinnniicc(l the following Rri'tnoii be fore a large coiigi ejialioii, (losigiiating it*n»“\Vliat nreounlopnrlod Cliiistiuii fi'ioiids tioiiip now ?” and Inking for his text ICxpkivI I, 2—“It caino top.ip* in the thirlictli ycur, in the fourth month, on tho fiflh dny of tho month, a* I W!i8 ittnong tho captives by the river of Cliehar, that the Iic.ivcns wero opened.” The ipiostion is wilently, thoii);h, pt rhapi>, never admittedly, asked by innltilndvH : What arc oiir dep.irted (Miristian friemlH doing now? Tho (ineHticin ia more easily answered than at first i>iippo.scd, thongh no new.H eonien directly from heaven and wo are dependent upon dcxcriptioiiR eight een centuries old an to the ocoiipiUioii of tho celestial residents. Yet wo may, by Btroiigcst infiienee, know the pres ent employment of our trnnsferred kinafolk. When Uod makes a nature he never takes .iway its characteristics of icinperainent. Y*u never knew a phlegmatic temperament to become a sanguine temperament. Conversion implants new principles, bul I’anl nnd Jolin arc just as difl'erent trom each otlier after conversion as bt’foro con- Tersion. If conversion leaves tho tem perament unchanged, so will death leavo it nnchanged. John and Paul are as dilTerent Irom each other in heaven as they were difl'erent in Asia ilinor. Uy n plain sum of subtrac tion and addition you will find out what your departed friends aro doing. You only have to subtract from them earthly grossness and add to them celestial goodness. They are doing on a grander scale, and without any hindrance, what they loved to do on earth in their b(jst moments. First, I remark that thoso of our friends who in their earthly habitation had especial joy in tho flue arts, aro now in heaven luxuriating their ais- thotio tastes. Tlieir gladdest earthly life was among pictures and statuary, and iu tho study of delicate lines, and lights, and shades, and perspective, and do you suppose that at their de cease all that aflliienee of the soul col lapsed and expired ? What use, when they havo more to look at and keener appreciation of beauty, and standing among the looms where the sunsetii aud rainbows and spring mornings are woven ? Are you so obtuse as to sup pose that when a paiotor drops his oasel or a sculptor his chisel, or an engraver his knife be is forever done with that tasto which for fifty years be had been intensifying and dereUp- ing ? In this world tho artist worl^ in rudest material and witb Imperfect brains and frail hand. At death they take their art into larger labors and mot* brilliant circnmrercncea. Tliejr are at their old business yet, bat with none of the poverties and none of the limitations of a terrestrial studio. Again, I remark that most of our departed Christian friends, who found their ohief enjoyatent iu musie, aro now indulging in it amid bettor oppor tunities. The niblo says so much about the music of Heaven, that I am ccrtaiu that it is not figurative. Why all that talk about hallelujahs and choirs and harps and trumpets nnd or gans f Will there be real harps and real trumpets and real organs for tho resurrected body at last to play on and tlie resurrcoted ear to hear ? I do not know, but 1 should not wonder if the God who owns all tho forests and metals of earth and all tho growths of tho universe could, if lie desired, find wood and metal cneugh to make real harps nnd trumpets and organs. Old and sick Haydn, tho composer, was carried (or tho last time into a great hall, to hear bis own oratorio of t!ie oreatien. At tho passage, “Let there bo light,” tho audience roso and choerud, and Ilaydn waved his hnnd toward Heaven and cried ; “It conies from there 1 Overpowered by his own music, ho wis carried out in his chair, turnin,' towamj the *orcliestra] and spreading his hands towards them as in benediction. Ilaydn was right, when waving his hand toward Heaven, ho said; ‘‘I comes from there 1” Mnsie, born in Heaven, will ever have her highest throno there. Y'onr de parted Cliri.stian fi lends, HO fond of sweet sounds, aro at the headquarters of harmony. It seems to me that all the old church tnnes mnst bo in Heaven. They wero good old tunes, and when they died they could not have been banished to perdition, and SI) they must havo gone up into the corridors of Alabaster and Lebanon cedar. What aro the astronomers doing ? Studying astronomy. Not through lens in earthly observatory, but with sweep of wing right out to .Tupiter and Mercnry nnd Mars and thu Plei ades and Orion and overtaking and passing swiftest meteor in tho flight. Ilerachel died a Christian. Havo you any donht what Ilerschel is doing ? or Isaac Xewton or Joseph Henry? Al together im earth they could not guess wliat the iinrora borealis was. They all know now, for they havo been out theie lo look for Ihemselves. What aro tho departed Christian chemists doing ? Studying chemistry. They have since their death fonnd out ten thousand subtleties which pu/.zled thorn in earthly lal'oratoiics. They ean now answer questions which tho world has (or centuries been asking. They now stand on the other silo of tliitthin wall of electricity, which seems to divide thu physicial from the spirit ual. so then that wo almost break through from one sido to tho other, from this sido by telephones and tele graphic apparatus, and from tho other sido by mysterious influences, which in our ignorance wo call spiritualistic demonstration. They havo cleared up the mystery and laugh to seo us stand with contracted brow experi menting and wishing they could be allowed to throw us the key that would open lo us all tho mysteries. Agassiz, who took off his hat in Brazil, while standing among his students uf tho ex ploring expedition, saying : “Gentle men, lot us pray,” has gone right on and up in his studies. What arc our departed Christian friends, whose chief delight was in studying law, doing now? Studying law unhindered in a universe where everything is controlled by law from flight humming bird to flight of world. Law, not dry and hard and drudging, but righteous and magnificent; law be- f«ro which men nnd anguls nnd nrch- angels and (>od himself bow. One great chain long enough to wind round infinity ana immensity and eter nity—tho chain of law. What a place to study it, whero one can take up tho links ill his own hand. But what aro our departed Christian explorers doing? Kxplorin^ yet, with lightning loooinotion and vision micro scopic and telescopic a continent at a glanco and a world in a circuit, a planetary system in a morning. Christ ian Sir John Franklin no more trying in disabled Urebus to find the North Pole, or Christian Do Long trying to free the blockaded Jeannette from the ice, but in tho twinkling oi an eyo talc ing in the oneo unsearchable. What are departed Christian frienda doing who found their ohief delight in oonvcrsation and lociality f Engage d in tho brightest conversation and grandest sociality. What a place to Tisit in where they have kings and queeug for next noor neighbors, them- ■olvci kingly equally. If they want to know how the first Paradise looked they have only to go over aud see Adam If they want to know how the sun and thu moon halted they have only to go over nnd seo Joshua. If they want to have thu ancient ark more minutely described they havo only 10 go over and seo Nuuh. If they want to know how the storm pelted Soi!o:n they have only to go over and seo Lot. If they want to know how tbo Red sea boiled when cloven, they have only to go over aud see Moses. If they want to ^'t a better idea of tho animosities ot Ha- man, they have only to g* over and see Mordecai.
