The hundred doilari It coat w«e moiher’a preaent. The house waa fraHraut with flowera. Clare waa ^n artlat In decoration audlttooked pi*rfertly lovely. I bad Ave hun dred dollars father left me for thlavery occa- aian. Dear father; how he would have ei joyed Ibia happ) dav. The troaieau Waa all Ihnteould be desired, and Mark had furnUhed a iUtl«r cortaKe In the Inlat d city where we were to live. Mother bad l>4en too kind to me. 1 waa a good acholar, bad graduated with htMiora, quite a muaieian, and waa a deft hand at fancy work. But buuaework, bleae me! 1 waa Innocent of knuwledtcc in that regard a« a new boro baby. I had tried to tell Mark of my (ignorance, hut he bad atopped i*it with kiiftua, aa If love would make the pot boll. rUe weddin;^ brt^Afa^t waa all prepared, toy trunka were pAckeil, with teari, I confeap, Jane poer loul, h;id bought mu a dosen lliivn clothea for wl|ing my china. **Tbey’d be real handy,'* ahe said. How little I renlii- ed that diabea must he washed fn that vma covered eotlage! But 1 thanked her, and many a time alnee. M.ii k had come the night before, and now Heleu vamu iu with her aiiff ai>k and her quveniy bt aring, and aaid ^he gueata were arriving and the hour waa nearly at hand. Then Mark knocked and looked a little Hiarded when he saw mu In my white silk and the filmy veil. **\Vhy Koaa,’* he aaid, "are you goiag to fly; (am afrai i I ehall lose you.** Tbe voice >f John came up iho alsirway, and Mark and I went d>WQ umiil the pirfume and lv>w whispers. Dr. Dale waited there for ut, with hie benignint face and white hair. 1 only remembered (his of (bit shadowy §er- viee: ’‘Remember my clilld, whatever awaits you In the new life, that duty mual be before plea:ure, and heroism Is tbe Uber ot e\ery life. Until dealh do you two part.'* Ah, how much that means now, for all this waa trn yeara ago. Then came the congratulattona, the hurried bri'ak/ast, and we wera iteamlng away toward our home. We were to live to gether. How funny it aeemed. Mrs. Mark Paltlson, wife of Lawyer rattiaon. We reached home at last, and Mark'a aiater waa tbere to receive as. 8ha was twlea my age and regarded Mark as a little above any one eUe. We went all over the tittle honsa, out into the garden, and aang and dreamed an:) talked Ilk** two kittens Innocent of life. TbH duak found ua In the arbor, the moon light alMng through the grap'Tine fragrant with blopsoma. We were la an enchanted land; life waa love. What feared we of traabfe; It bad not touched ui. The neit day Mark went to hla office aaying aa he kissed me good bye. **Let Martha aea to the ordering of the dinner; Juat rest,'* aa If I waa tired. Rut 1 resolved to aurprise him. I woulT prepare the deaaert. Had I not seen mother make auch delicate puddlnga of anow wUb a delicate cruat, the color of umber t To* be aur«, mother atood by and told roe evcry> thing to put In; built waa nothing to do. 8o I went to my pianOt my v#ry awn, which had been aent from the ol«l home. That brought up the familiar room, and 1 cried a littje to think ot the new Ufa before me. Then 1 began to pUy. I vrati passionately fond of mualc, and my home Mckness was forgotten. 1 had been playing aome time when I thought of dinner. Thore waa only an hour. Martha had been out In tbe kitchen all the laoruing. 6he with Chtoe, the colored eo(»k, were about the dlnnr'r. My propoaition to prepare the desert teemed to atrfke them addly, bat 1 went bravely to work. I thought T wontd make a fruU pnddlng. We often had them at home. I knew Mark atijoyed them. 1 got the floor, the butter and salt, and made dough w ith milk and water, and then rolled It Into lltlla cakea and apread the peacbet. 1 tald Chloa they were to be colked quartera of ao hour. They didn't look Joat right, but I thought boiling would remedy aftry defect. Tbe dinner paaaed off pleaaanlly. Mark bad had a busy day. Bat when the daaert waa rnag In, Chloe turucd up her noa^ and aallfi^ ominoualy. Good heavena! Wbara wera my peaeb dampllogaf They were at b^ry at lead. To eat one would be lo Inrlta d«apapela. Mark aaid nothing, bat he amlled, aad BftHy began to roar antll the teara ran dawn hla face. At flratl felt hurt, bat the mlrtb waa eoota* giooa, and wa laaghad wotll 1 waa faint. I bad forgottas tba t#o apoanfala of baking pow der, and Mark waa aacrlllfaoa enaaf b to ear, **they would not rtsa aolll tbe judgmacl day.»» Martha ataid with aa a montb. I thought aba waa meddleaome, but I know now her love for Mark %ad a raal daalc« to bailp oa provpt- ad her tti offer iaggeatfoai. Bha wit a perfect boiaa-keeper, and must have raffsrded me tt a mere child. Chloe waa a treature. She had been in Mark*a family for yctrs. 8he waa aomewbat domineering as favorita aervanta ara accaatomed to be, but while ahe ataid onr bouaohoid fiaatt and dally appoiutmtuta w;re caiwfiilly atteadttd lo. Bat bar ateter waa takan dangemualy III, and she was obliged lo go. Mark refused at flrtt, but 1 prevailed on him to allow her lo leave ui. *Mt will bo hot aliula whtla,** I aaid, **and I will take Chloe'a place.” And ao f went down Into that awful kitchen the following morning. It makes me home- tick when 1 th nk of those dayt. and yut what la one worth unlll tested. The range would n't work, and then It bunie l everything up. 2’he augar and butter waa oat. I was tiuaccus- tomed to U all; my back and head uched and when Mark came home, I sat on the floor in the kitchen io teara. He ;rled to cheer me up, but what dots a man know of woman's work. 1 waa utterly diacourag d. We dined on dry toast and poached egt;s, which Mark oiaaaged, and then we had a lang evening of talk and aong. Tbe breakfaat p;iaaed wtth a rcalooa^ ble degree of success, and 1 resolved that I would make a brave fight. Wo both liked aoup, we had vcgetnblea. Chloe had left pies. I aaw my way through. I worked hard that forouoon. 1 auiile now aa 1 thluk what toil 1 made of a aimpla m«tt«r, but perchance son»e young housewife mny be «Mo(Kir«g«*d na they read how I took my letsona In '‘kerphig house.** riiut soup is an cpgrb iu my ntarried life, for it was my aerond di fuat. 1 had lieurd that a little cl»ve for a«*a«onitig would be de* airalfle, but I mistook my nieasiin t, uud I set it before (he hungry Maik it wa4 aa bl.u-k aa his bat. *HJreat Ca'rar, Kosv, «hat have you here; are you going to pois>tn me out- iluht?'* And when I t>>ld linii, and he eii* dcavored to turn it ofT Into a Joke by bayinff, “It was suitable only for him of tlie t-ioven foot," I cried outiikiht. I was nervous, and hardly n aonun, ahd the lic'nvens and ear h gr*'W blacker than tt;e stfup .M«ik aioel dlf Chloe'a pies, remarking that ho wa* pi soni'd.'* afierall. 7 he very mention of soup to this day makes me f'*'** faint. Chloe waa away far six months. That slr- terof hers would not gel Will, nod would not- die, I aomrtlnua ihonght in de!>pfr:tMon. I WHa too prond (o Kond for Martha. Hetcn nnd Clare were both of them vlAitlng. I fouuht it out alone and I mentally resolved, If I evrr had a dA'ighier, ahe might be ignorant of the languages unU mu-*ie, but 1 would u-aeh her to Work. She should (H'cotu*.^ f.joiliur vilh the conduct of a home. Many u dinner was ruined. Maik like hi« namci^nke of old, be came an apostle of pdtienre. 7'he only won der it he did not acquire n S'tiU'.l dy^^pepKla. I was dlscourniied and wept, nnd tlifn wei tat It again. I thought I never should he able to prepare a well appointed meal, but jiit as I was on the point of utter defeat, moihiT, dear soul, viaitt^ me, and then I was safe. Wiian she heard my story, she g:ive mo hints but aaid 1 had best keep on. only ini>urni‘d that she had nuglccted this |)art of my ediiea- tion. **But child, I never tlioiuht (if your marrying ao yoong. Your rt!t;erH are r^till sin gle; you wore but a schxtil ({irl, wUwx Murk must take you ttway.'* M tt with her co«u«el and iitigifestion^, and her dear sini e, I detied the world. Mother said bt-forc t>ho left, I was cortatniy becoming an accom]ill»hed eook. The next sii months of our laarritd ||fo wrt plain sailing. 'I'itc rothiire bveame the dear est spot on earth. 1 bad forgotten Dr. I>ale*s word*, *'Ke»ncmher, my d-ar child, nliafe»er awaits you In the new life, that duty niu^t be before pleasure, and heroism is the llbre of every life.” 1 had conquered the cuisine. Evan Cliloe respected niy Julgment. I coulil superintend the preparation uf a dinner that no ane need be ashamed of. Aty iiule rooots grew ci*ty and Inviting aa 1 adorned tliem wiih the work of my lingers. 1 began to think tliut life waa a aummer day of tung. '1 he second year marked the advent of our bahy. Not tinlll one passes under (he spelU of luothei- hood can the full reaches of life be fathomed. They told me 1 came iitur dying, but our boy, Mark, Jr., was worth it all. Jjow wc loved him, and what a I cautiful mytery he w as. We both declared he wap a remarkuhle chiUi. We feared hn waa too smait to live. Ilow tli>tt second year was glorified by tliii cnre and anx« lety attendmg our llrsl horn. We did not grudge the broken rest. But h*) fafely passed the colic, croup and all the otlicr IIU unlit (he abarp littio Ivorlee ahewu in the Lluahlng guina. I bad been so engrossed with my bahy that I had not noticed that Mark was growing thinner everv week, nntil ontf night he cnme home sick and he did not leave his bed for four monlhf. 'I'hat terrible fever ate into his life until be was on y thn Hhndow of my hua^ band. For two weeks 1 stood with him In ihe very shadow of de>ith, battling the Ang^l of Destruction, as only a woman can battle, for her deareat. I loarnml to live almost withont rest, and grew ainiost us pale aa the tosalng patient on the couch. Only a atrong consti tution aaved me from dealh. Many nnd many a nUht I spent on my knees, crying out unto Him who bolds the keys of I fo to f^pare my husband. Aa the apriug came on, he began to gain, and In Juno he waa cut again, **as new," he aaid, aave that the gray had crept Into bis hair. I knew not what my dear mother bad experienced iu tue last slelineaa of father. She had often apoke of It, and a shadow always fed on her l«ce and a hush came to her voice. 2 did not understand then; I know uow. My baby’a second summer waa a trying time. Ah I that second anmnier; how wa tuolbers dread them for otr children. He bad nlaaed my care during tho aieknesa of my hnsband. I was obliged to >\iian him, and uow ha Rraw white sod pallid In the hot daya. We watched him anxioaaly. Wo could not flvahinup. Weak and weary as I was, 1 was still about the bouae.

"You've been •speculating Inatocka, and have^bave uaed the ollioe money* i>|i! Ousltta, to think that you should ever be a drlkuUer."

Gustus, don't talk In that atrange way. If anything dreadful has happened tell roe at once. Don't keep me In a^spuuse!" and ahe laid her head On his ahouldur and sobiMd bit ■ ti-rly. " I'ilda," aaid the young man, after a mo ment devoted to lirmly hut gently removing her hi-ad and selecting another aeat "yoa don*t really care very much for Llmburger cheese, do you?

It was a Miehi!*aii nun ridinjf throiijfh West Virginia on liurseb.iok and on ono afternoon nti he cam« nlong lo a .setller's eabin on tho mountain road lie asked ol a man leaning over the gate: Cun you tell ni« how far It is to the town head? I reckon I kin uti'aiigor. Von will h ive to peg along fur aboatnine milis yit. liut it is nearly dark. Is there no tavern on tho road? Never heard of any, and I have backed my corn meal over tin* road risin of twenty years. liut |ierhaps 1 could pnt up some where? I’erliaps yer could. There is Steve Tuyloi’s down alniut four mileH, but he would heat you blind on olJ sledge. 'I'lii r is Muse Smith a mile nigher, but would ^ol viTiitid^d' if yt didn't trade him that horsu for a stub tailed mule. Might put np at GreiMi’s but there is lots of rattle snakes round his place. > j Kiiriiel .lohiiRoii is down about six miles, but the Kurnel would turn yc all out doors at midnight if he found out that yon did not vote his way. Hut what am I to dof Waal, I‘m a square man, stranger, iind the best 1 kin do is to ax }*e to stop licre with me, nnd to tell ye before hand that if ye awakened in the night by sh:iiy;lt s being ripned ofT and logs pulled down il wont be an avalanctie or a cyclone, but only mca*n the old woman a tryin for tho two hundretli time 8ini!c the war lo *eo who handles the nuney when I sell two coon skint for a dollar. X^l.guees I'll go in, faltered the rider. ICe-rect, stranger! The last nt»n who stopped hrro said ho wished he had have (run he chances with the snukda down al Qreen‘8 and I gin him my hand ivhen he rode off. I'm square up and down, as I told yc, and Qrecns 1:1 tho tbird cabin on this ride alter ye cross llin creek*. A NEWLY MASBIIB COUPLE. A couple left the train at Union depot and walked np JvlTerson avenue jresterday. She had long curls und • yellow sash, and ho had » standing collar tawing hit oain olT, a buttonhole bouquet and a pair of new boots fresh- It greasdl and one siio too small. They hadn’t walked two blocks when they came to a man sitting on a box in front of » store, and as he caiigbt tight of tlieai a grin crept over liis face spread out on a shingle. Grinning at us, I t’pose? queried the young man, as he came to a halt. Yes, I rankly repliud tho sitter. Tickles you most dtath to see us take hold o hands, don't it T Il does. And you ’magiiie, you can sco us fending each other caramels, oan’i you? I can. And you shake all over at the way we gawp around and keep our mouths open? That’s me. Well, this is me! I’m not purty, and I haven't between the rows, n«r billed up or fertilized. I ain’t wliat you call Stull fed, and the old mini looks twon ty per cent, worse than I do, but il won’t take me over a minute to jam you seven feel into the ground! I told Lucy I was going lo begin on the first man who looked cross-eyed at us, and you are ihu I'reparc lu be pulverized ! lli'g pardon, but 1 didn’t mean! Yes. yon did! Lucy, hold my hat while I mop him ! Say—hold on —say—! He took up (he middle of the street like a runaway horse, and tho young man took after him, but it was of no use. After a ricv o( a block tho m.iii who grinned gainedso fast, ilial the other stopped slmrt and went back to his girl and his hat. Stretching forth his hand to ihu innocent maiden, he remarked. Lnoy, clasp on to that, and if you let go for the next two hours, even to wipe your nose, I'll never oull you by the sacred name of wile.—Detroit Free Press. .! YOU FUST. A minister otllciating at a wedding better not lay any plans fur spnrt on his own neeonnt. 'I'lio luugli may come in in tho wrong place for him — as il did at negro wedding in Virginia, where two brawny, ruby lipped ne- griies called upon a young and popular minister to bo married. I'he minister was fond of fun, and i iviled some ol his intimate friends, telling them ho would have an extra performaiu’e iu the ceremony. The parl ir was well lijrhted, nnd tho guests H'itli niirthfiil faeos, were ated, when tho eoiiplc were shown Tho ceremony proceeded, amid a littlu tittering of the giie.sls and no little agitation on the part of thu lev ers. As it ended and the minister pronoimceil them man and wife, he added with a smile ; “Samuel, salute your bride.” The new-made liushaud looked all round the room, and seeing by the mirth ot the crowd that all was not right, lie excitedly said : You lust, massali I yon fust?” and prompted by a look ot the iond hus band, tho bride raised her ruby lija for the expected kiss: The tables had turned. The sur prised minister stepped back, and hot* itatingly saiil: '1 will soon have a bride of niy own to kiss.” ADVEUTISICMKNTS.
