Columbia, Mo. ONLY A FEW WORDS. Mr. Wiukuluiao shut the door with a bang us be left tbe house, and moved dowu the street in tbe diiection of bin office, with a qu'ck, firm Step, sod I tbe air ul a uiau slightly disturbed iu . uitnd. "Things are getting better fast," said he, with a touob of irony in his voice, as be almost flu'ig himself into his leather cushioned chair "it's rather hard wben • man has to pick his words in hia own house us carefully us il he Were picking diamonds, and tread aa softly as though ho were stepping on eggs. I dpn't like it. Mury g.its weaker and more foolish •vary i»v, and puts a breadth of mean ing on uiy words that I never intended thetu to hsve I've not been used to this conning over of sentenoesand pick ing out of all doubtful expressions ere venturing to speak, and I'm 100 old to begin now Mary took me for what I am, and t-he must make tbe moet of ber bargain. I'm past the age for learning new tiicks." With these and many other justifying sentences, did Mr. Winkelman seek to obtain a feeling of self approval. But, fur all t is, he could not shut out tbe image of a tearful faoe, nor get rid of an annoying conviction that he bad acted thoughtlessly, to say the least of it in speaking to his wife ss he had done. But wbat was all tbis trouble about? Clouds were in tbe eky that bent over the home of Mr. Winkelman, and it ia plain that Mr. Winkelman himself bad hia own share ia the work of produoing these olouds. Only a few unguarded words had been spoken. Only wordß ! And was that all f Words are little tbingß, but they sometimes strike hard W* wield tbem ao easily that we are apt to forget their hidden power. Fitly spoken, tbey fall like the sunshine, tbe dew and tht ferti lising 1 sin ) but when unfitly spoken, li>« tbe frost, the hail and the desolating tempest Some speak as tbey feel or think, without calculating the foroe of wbat tbey say; and then aeem very much surprised if any oue is hurt or of> fended. To tbis olasa belonged Mr. Winkelman. His wife was a loving, sincere woman of quick feelings. Words, to ber, were indeed realities. They never fell upon ber ear as idle sounds. How otien was ber poor beart bruised by them ! Oo tbis particular morning, Mrs. Win kelman, whoso health was feeble, found herself in » weak nervous suite. : It was only by an effort that j)he 'could rise above the morbid irritability that afflict ed ber. Earnestly did she strive to re press tbe disturbed beatings of her heart, but she in vain. And it seemed to ber aa it often'suob cases that everything went wrong. Tbe children were fretful, tbe 000k dilatory and oroqa, and Mr. Winkelman impatient, because sundry little matters pertaining to his wardrobe were not just to )>is mind "Eight o'clock,.and no breakfast yet," said Mr. Winkelman, as be drew out I)is watcb, on eompleting hia *owo toilet. Hrs Witikeluiun wis in the actof dress iug the last of five children, all of wham had passed under bor hands Eaeh was oaptious, cross or antuiy, sorely try inc the mother's palienoe Twice had 'she been inlo the kitchen to see how breakfast was progressing, and to enjoin tbe oareful preparation oi B favorite dish with which the had purposed 10 surprise her husband. ''lt will be ready in a few minutes/' said Mrs Winkleman. "The fire hasn't burned treely this morning " "If it isn't one thing, it's another'' growled the husband "I'm getting tir ed of this irregularity. There'd #OOO be no.breakfast io.«ei, if I Were always bchiLd time- iu business matters." Mrs. Winkleman bent lower over the ehiid she was dressing, to conceal the ex pression of her face What a sharp pain throbbed through her temples 1 Mr. Winkleman began to puae the floor im patiently, little imagining that etery jarring footfall was like a blow on the tensitive, aching brain ot bis wife. ' Too bad 1 100 bad !" be bad just ejao ulated when the bell rung. "At last!" he muttered, and strode to ward the breakfact room The ahildren followed in considerable disorder, and Mis. Winkleman, alter hastily arranging her hair, and putting on a morning cap, jointd them at the tuble. It took some ui»uients to restore order a'uoug the lit tle ones The dish that Mrs. Winkleman bad been at conaideiabie rains to provide for Iter husband, was set beside bis plate It was favorite among many, ana bis *ile, looked for a pleased recognition thereof, and a lighting up of his clouded brow Hut he did not eeem to even no After supplying the children. Mr Winklemau helped himself in sil ence. At tha first mouthful he threw down bis knife and folk, and pushed his plate from him "What's tbe matter f" inquired bis wife. "You didn't trust Bridget to cook this, I hope !" was his response. "Wbat Is the matter wiih it 7" Mrs Winkleman's eyes were filling with tears "Oil! it's of uo consequence," answer ed Mr. Winn leman, coldly; "auytbing will do for me." "James!" There was atouchingsad nees blended with a rebuke in her ao acuta; aud, as she- uttered hia name, tears gushed over ber cheeks. Mr. Winklemsn did not like tears. They always annoyed him. At the prea eut lime be was \n no mood to bear with them So, on the impulse of the mo ment, he arose from the table and left the boure Self justification was tried, though not as has been seeu, with complete success Tbe ealuier gtew the mind ot Mr. W ink leiumn, and the dearer bis thoughts, the lees satisfied did be feel with the part be bad taken in tbe mornings drama. By •n inversion of thought not usual amoog sen of bia temperment, he had been pre. ►ented with a vivid realisation ot bia wife's side of the question. The oonee quenoe was, that by dinner time, be felt a good deal ashamed of himself, and grieved for the pain be knew his hasty words had occasioned It was in this better state of mind that Mr. Winkleman returned home Tba bouse soemed still as he entered As he prooeeded up stairs, he heard the children's voio*s pitched to a low key in the nursery. He listened but could unt bear the tones of bis wife. So be pass ed into the front chamber which was darkened. As soon aa he could see olear ly in the feeble light he saw that his wife was lying on Iho bed. (!cr eyes were oloeed, fcnd her tbin face looked so pale aud deathlike, that Mr. Wiokleman felt a cold shudder creep throegh bis heprt. Coming to the bedaidb be leaned over and gaxed down upon her At first he was in doubt whether she really breathed or not; and he felt a heavy ''i ight removed when be a«w that her obept rose and fell in feeble, respiration. "Mary J" he spoke in • low tender voice - Instantly tbe fringed eyelids parted, and Mrs Winkleman gascd up into her bqtband'a faos in partial bewilderment, hi Obeying the moment's impulse, Mr Winklttnsn bent down and left a kiss upon her pale lips. As If moved by an eljotrie thrill, the wife's arms were flung around the husband's neok. "I 181 sorry to find .you so ill," said Mr. a voice of sympathy. 1 What is the sitter ?" "Only a siekjieadaohe," replied Mrs Winkleman. liut I've had a good sleep and feel better 'naw. I didn't know it was so late," tone changing slightly, and a look of hnoero coming into her countenance. "I'm afraid your dinner is not ready ;"and she attempted to rise. Hut her buband gently laid her back with his ham saying: '-Never mind about dinner It will come in good time If yot leel better lie perfectly quiet Hateyou suffered much pain ?'» "Yes." The word did not part her lips sad'y, bu came with a softly wreath Tp*-stiiiU. ready the wan hue of her oheika Wat giving place to a warmer tint, and tlie dull eyes bri): I letting What a healing power was in his tender tones and ooutiderate words 1 And that kiss—it bad thrilled along every nervo —it had btiea as nectar to the drooping spirit. ' Bu. I feel so mueh bettor, that I will get up," she added, now rising from her pilUw. And Mr*. Winkleman was entire!) free from pain As she stepped upon the carpet, and moved across tbe room, it was with 1 firm trend Every mu«ole was clastio, and the blood leaped along her veins with a new and healthier im pulse- No tiialnf Mr. Winkleman's patience in a late dinner was in store for him. In a few minutes tbe bell summoned the family; and ho took bis place at the table so traaquil in mind that he almost wondered at the change in his feelings Hiw different was the soene from that presented at the morning meal 1 And was there power in a few simple words to effect such a change as this? Yes, iu simple words, with tbe odor of kindness. A few gleams of light shone into the mind of Mr. Winkleman, as he returned musing to the office, and be saw that he was frequently to blame for tbe olouds that so often darkened over tbe sky of home. "Mary is foolish," he said in partial | BelfjUßtificalibn, "to lake my hasty wurd* :so much to heart. I speak often with out meaning half what I say. She ought to know me better. And yet," he added as bia step became slower, for be was thinking more ingenuously than usual, "it may be easier for me to chsose piy wo.ds more cmfully, and to repress the unkindness of tone that givei them a double foroe, than for her to help fecliug pain at their utterance." llight, Mr. Winkleman ! That is the eotnmon sense of the whole matter. It is easier to strike than to help feeling pain under the influence of a blow. Look well to your words, all ye members of a home circle. And especially look well to your words, ye whoae words have the most weight, and fall if dealt in passion, with tbe heaviest "force [Arthur's Magazine. Dependence of Health Upon Circu lation.

"Ab, hero I aui, Governor G'ad to see you " Then, turning to the dumbfounded company, be said : "I wish yon a very good evening " One day a bear walked out of the woods and, all uninvited, entered the bumble home where ibe uiau and his wile Betsey wore silting At sight of bis bruiuship the lord of orration arose from his chair with a wild yell of terror aud, without thought of bis wife, hastened to climb a place of refuge on top of an old Dutch clock that stood in one oorner of lite room. The more valiant Betsey stood her ground, and seizing a long poker fiercely attacked tbe bear, and did uot desi.»t, in spile ot tbe game defence which he made, until site had stretched him dead at her feet. Her lord and master from his safe perch watched the oouihat between her and the bear with evident interest, aud ever and anon kept shoutings "Give it to him, Betsey," "Hit him another wine across the hend," "Smash his infernal skull'," eto.
