A MAN AND HIS OWN
15Y AM EM I A E. BAKE.
On a lovely afternoon, when the
balmy air and the fresh, bright toil-ef-s
of the ladies imvle a kind of gala
day, even ou Broadway, Philip Haya
8t iod at bis (.flice door, thoughtful
ly pulling on his neatly fitting
g nves. l fay "i nougnuuiiy," oe
cause that word iut describes his
8'ate of mind, which was that of
himM't: between two opinions
wliibr to go for his usual stroll
uptown, have a comfoi table dinner
H tiotel, aud a little flirtation
with Jessie Alabin afterward ; or to
cross i he nvtr, and lake, a traiu to
hi Siothei's preity place in Jersey.
lie told biiTiself, as he aras caretnlly
buttoning his right-hand g!ove,tbat
the berries were ripe, aud lhat he
really deeded a little fresn air, etc.,
etc , etc.
But he knew a tar better reason,
if he wonld ouly have acknowledge
ed it ; and what is more, other peo
ple knew it, too. Brother Will was
wise enough to credit his pretty
sisterin-law witn Philip's excess ot
fraternal aflectioo ; and little Nona
Zabriski herself had a shrewd
i goess as to what kind of berries Mr.
J Philip Hays came to the country to
i Well, on this particular afternoon
i tbe couutry proved tbe most power-
' ful attraction, and in an Lour and a
half a'ter the gloves had been fitted
to a nicety, tbey were taken off a
gain to clas; the bands of tbe dear
s, sweetest, brightest little conn
tiy maiden that any man with the!
risht kind of eyes could desire to ! uot; much troubled, for he relied
s -e. : with imp'icit confidence on the ef-
Eveiybody pretended to believe fect WDicb Philip Hays, in his own
the story about the berries, and that ! proper pereoD, conld not fail to
of cours", gave him a chance togolraafce. This confidence did not
with Nona to gather them.
, What Philip said to Nona, and
j what Nona said to Philip, the ber
j ries and the evening star probably
j know ; bnt it was very delightful
aod w satisfying, that the joung
people came back to the house
without any beriies at all, and pre
sently there was a great- deal of
hand shaking aud kissing, which
ended in a bottle ot champage and
mutual good wishes.
Well, after this, tor a couple of
weeks, there was no hesitating at
the ofiice door. Philip said peacb
er," now when his frieud rallied
him about bis sudden patdo(i for
the country, aud the "pachu excuse
did just aa well as the "berries."
Philip's mother aud sister were
going to some fashionable Virginian
springs, and he greatly desired that
his little Nona shoald go with them.
For. to s ell the truth, he did winb
she were a little more stylish, would
piit up her curls, aud abandon a
pi ons, and dress like Jessie Mabiu
He went about his plans with that
taut whictf young men who have
sisters acqaire ; a little preseut from
the jeweler's, a modest check, "just
tor spending money, made bis
oister Cecilia sufficiently interested
iu his project.
'Nona is a dear little girl, Ceoile,v
be paid ; Vail she wants Ja a more
stately manner aud stylish dress."
-If that Is what you like, Philip,
why did you not marry Jessie Ma
bin T I thought you liked her well
"Because, Oecile, I want a heart
inside the dress a pure, loving
Mt seems to me " but here Ce
ciie stopped. She was wise enough
to know she would be "throwing
Tbe next difficulty was to make
Nona nndeistand bis wishes aud
induce her to accept the invitation
sent by his moth r .
"I am going to please you, Philip,
for I am quite well, thank yon."
"Ob, I don't mean about your
health, .you little witch ! Wbo
could have such bright e.ves and
red lips and not be quite well ? I
mean about dress and deportment
and that kind of things."
There was a little ominous si
lence, and then a low, grieved voice:
"1 don't think 1 understand you,
"No, dear ; aud, upon the whole,
L am glad you have never under
stood, so tar; but when we are mar-
riod, we shall live iu the city, and
we must dress and behave as city
people do. Cecile will show you all
about it, darling, so don't trouble
your pretty little bead.''
"I. thought you liked me just as I
am, Philip, What is wrong iu tbe
city that ia proper and pretty lu the
country? Will you tell me?''
"Certainly, Nona. Your loose
flowiug hair and short dresses and
white aprons; your frauk ways, all
r perfectly charming here, would
cause unDleasant criticisms in tbe
city. I want my little girl to be as
stylish and fashionable as a6
well, as Miss Jessie Mabin, for in
stance.'' "Ah ! she is your ideal, is she ?"
Much more to the same purport,
mingled truly with compliment-
and kisses, was said ; but it did not
decieve the wonnded woman's heart;
for Uona, though not a fashionable
woman, was a true woman, never
theless. and understood both all
Philip said and all that it inferred.
Philip thought be bad managed
cleverly, and when be next saw
Nona, in a most perfectly appoint
ed traveling suit, be congratulated
himself ou hia tact and wisdom.
It was not possible for him to
leave his business entirely, but it
had beeu arranged he was to come
at intervals tor a few days, and be
regularly refreshed and comforted
by plentiful supplies of letters.
The sapply was pretty fair the
I first week, but fell off gradually,
I until several days passed without
KDy word from Nona
Still he was
agree with events. He arrived at
the spring, and found Nona oat
driving with Jack Christie, a young
man whom he particularly disliked
for hia pretentions manners.
El4 was on tbe piazza when tbey
returned, and he was certain Nona
saw him, though she kept her eyes
on Jack's face, and pretended tbe
greatest interest iu his foolish con
versation ; for of two things Philip
was certain : first, that her interest
wa "pretended ;" and, second, that
Jaek'R conversation was "foolish."
Tnen he felt unaccountably
chdled by the greeting of the
splendidly diessed Koua, wbo calm
ty gave him the tips of her gloved
tigers, with a pretty little assurance,
of being "glad to nee Mr. Hays,''
and the information that Cecile bad
been expecting him since the early
"Cecile !" he paid, reproachfully.
'And you, too, Nona ?'
"Oh, dear, no, Mr. Hays. It is
quite too exhausting to expect any
thing. One honor at a time it quite
Philip was shocked and silenced
'or the time. For one distressing
half -hour he tried to assume his
right to posiiiou with his betrothed,
but she kept Jack Christie persist
ently between them; and, angry
and hurt, besought his sister Cecile.
"Cecile," be said, "what a change
there is in Nora ! What is the
"A wonderful change. I Dever
saw a girl improve so rapidly. I1
suppose you are tbe cause. Do you
know she is really the belle Jack
Christie and El Forsyth and a half
a dozeu others are raving about her.
Positively ibey are Phil.''
"Very kind ot them; but "
"Well so tt i, you know; veiy
first families, aud all that kiud cf
thing; upou my word, I believe
Nona will make a sensatiou next
winter, aud mamma is quite satis,
But Phil was not. No, not at all;
very far from it indeed. That night
at the hop, Nona looked garnd en
ough for a queen ; her golden hair
done up in some picturesque style
yards of satin and lace making a
track of glory behind her, aud jew
els flashing from her throat and
wrists. But all in vaiu Philip
pleaded for adauce; Nona had beer
engaged for every set since break
fast ; and she reminded him, rather
maliciously, of the necessity of ob
se'Ving the usages of society. So
he had the satisfaction of watching
the social triumph of tbe future
But he was Dot the victor, aud it
hurt bim sorely to be dragged at
tbe chariot wheels, when he should
have been holding the reins. Be
fore the wot Id, hawever, NoDa's be
bavior was perfectly irreproachable
Not even bis mother suspected any
eetraugemeut ; for Nona was re
spectful, kind, always mindful of
the proprieties but she took inar
velous care never to be left alone
Three miserable days of continua1
disappointment, and theu Philip
determined to go back to New York
and see Nona no more nntil he cou'd
do so ia her country home. Per
haps there be could regaiu bis lost
ground ; but eveu this determina
tion was very humiliating to the
proud young man, who only one
one month ago bad himself dictated
the very coarse which was making
bim eo wretched.
He could not help blaming him
self, and he did it very Iboroagbly
and repentantly. Philip Hays was
not the first man who has been sor
ry for not "letting well alane.''
However, be bade his mother and
Cecile "good-bye," and gave the
regulation kiss to Nona, who re
ceived it with perfect placidity, and
gave bim many kind wishes for bis
journey ; for, a3 he was to leave very
early in the morning, he did not ex"
oect to see the ladles again before
As tbey passed out of tbe parlors,
Nona turned, and for a momenta
dash of tbe old tendernhss made her
facH beautiful, her lips paned. and
she hesitated a moment, as it she
would speak, bat finally passed on
Poor Philip I He took his cigar
land sat down on the dark, silent
balcony, miseraoie enougo. jsui in
about nan an noar a nmia nine ng
stole throueh tbe deserted
rooci, and without warning laid her'
hand upon his shoulder.
He turned rapidly, all tbe great
passion which bad grown to a high
er and deeper intensity in hia suf
fering burst out in one imploring
"Philip! ' ...
Well, you know the end- Philip
d not like tue fashionable Nona at
all ; his whole heart cried oat for
'he sweet, najural girl whose worth
he bad not realized outil he
i bought her lost. Tangled curls,
shftrt dresses, ruffled aprons never
agaiu looked homely in bis eyes.
Ever afterwards be bad tbe otost
wholesome fear of Nona becoming
fashionable; and Nona to this day
j when Philip is in opposition, t!ti.l-
IV leminiln blm ot hi one exneiN
ate nt in mauding women, and n-
sutes bun that in tbe long run be
would not like his own way, eveu
if he got it. And so he takes hers,

Avoiding Petty Jealousies
'If there is anything that I teach
my children to avoid," said the sen
Bible mother ot a large family, "It
is indulging iu uetty jealousies.
There iu nothiug in the world more
demoralizing to tbe child or. chil
dren's society, or. Indeed, society of
any age, tor the matter ot that, than
tbe jealousy tnat comes from a de
sire to take precedence of othes.
If Ma'tie's father is more wealthy
tbao'Kate's lather, or has more po-
ition or influence iu the community
Mattie seems to take it lor granted
that she is entitled to just a little
bit more consideration than Kate.
Be that little ever so little, the sim
ple exhibition of it seems to be wou-
derfully gratifying to her, and. the
omission of it is a sore grievance.
Every li t tie advautage that tbe
child or its parents have is .made
inoch of, and u?ed as a sort of cap
ital stock ou which to draw for
coartesjes and consideration.
'At a children's party, the other
night, there were two little girls of
equal ageand general attractiveness.
One was quite as well dressed as
theotner, and iu the class in the
school to which they belonged they
stood almost alike ia point of ioteb
ligence and accomplishment. O.ie
however, was tbe daughter of tbe
bookkeeper in the mercantile house
ot tbe other. In the course of the
evening tha merchant' daughter,
whose mother had always encour
aged her conceit by explaining that
the liberties i-be took weie her
ways,' and that she was entitled to
things other little girls were not eni
titled to, became quite indignant
because tbe bookkeeper's daughter
was given prelermce in some selec
tions mad by the hostess for games
The merchant's diughter made
herself so disagreeable that the
other was very unhappy, and botb
went borne in tears and anger, Tbe
story was told as botb firesides, the
merchant was irritated ou account
of it. and his wife beoame eomewhat
jealous of the other little girl ; the
bookkeeper was very touchy be
cause ot the annoyance ). bis child
hflri Rnfrered. and wheu they met
1 n tne counting room on the follow
ing day, both of them were abso
lutely inflammable, aud it required
bat a word to bring about a decid
edly unpleasant state of affairs
which shortly culminated in open
rapture and a diseolutioa of rela
tions. The reflex action of the af-.
tair reached the hostess. The feel
ine spread until it involved several
members of the community and la d
he foondation for a lifelong e?
trfDgemeut and and annoyaoee
1 n uvar rkprmit mV children, to
indulge in criticisms bora of p?r
eonal jealousy. Tne proper teachs
ing in my opinion is that those who
are the most amiable and agreeab e
are the most likely to receive spe.
cial attention, bu1: that the roodf st
and retiring should always be
sought oat and mrde as comforta
ble as possible. One ot the. moat
amiable children I ever knew inva
riably looked over a company to see
i if there were some poor or neglect
ed or deformed child in it, aud. this
one, if such there were, was always
singled out as the object of her
guecUl attention ana courtesy. At

is needless-to say that such a child J
developed into an admiraole and
beautitnl character, and was loved

My method ot standing au egg on
end is not by cracking it, but by
taking tbe egg in one band and
striking it in the other three or tour
strong licks, which readily breaks
the thin membrane seperating the
air from tbe tnd of tbe egg ; it also
breaks up the yeik of the eg; tbe
parts of the contents of tbe erg be
ing thus free to move among them
selves, the heavier ones settle at
the bottom, the lighter ones above, j
and tbe air at tbe top. This is done
by placing the egg ou end a few
second and holding it perpendicu
larly. The ceuter of gravity is tbua
easily brought within the base and
the egg btands readily on either
end. 1 find that this is a tact that
is kaown by tut tew. I: is some..
