It was a very pretty wedding, and the l-' hundred or more guests seemed to en- f : joy themselves hugely: "As both bride "i'-and groom were orphans, without I homes, the ceremony and the reception |-were held in the stylish flat in which & they had set up their, oivn household I-.Rods. Therefore .every guest had y: .chance to inspect and mentally prict fe-'ihe new furniture,' while • the wedding !','-3>TsseBts, instead of being exhibited ba- S^zaar-likeon a table, were disposedjabout |V*he house in their future resting places. !-.The bride was young and pretty, i»itb febrown hair and blue eyes, and sbe ^looked vciy charming in her white «?%own and.vail. While I was admiring s?^the young couple and their future home Indiscriminately a voice whispered in ly ear: IT-'",' "Don't be envious; it isn't paid for!" Quite naturally this abrupt statement fsistartled' me, and I turned to see the " -bride's aunt, a dearly-beloved^woman, ..-who had never committed matrimony. '•-'.'• "What isn't paid for?" I inquired. . "'ViTiy, nil this," she whispered, with : 5i eomprshensive but unnoticeable .^sweep of her thumb. "Jack and Nora ^zare commencing their married life on V 5the installment plan. As you know, ^f Jack has been compelled to earn his ffe-own living ever since he was eighteen, | : f, and he has only about two hundred dol- S lars saved up. Nora has been book's?, keeper at the mill since she'left school |t but -her earnings were small and she P! has very little saved. I advised them to fS hire a coxiple of rooms and. begin life feas they could afford to, but neither could p : 'bear to. live in any poorer way than l|.VMheir acquaintance*, though the ac|| •q-uaintances may have rich parents to |i;stive them a start. Nothing in this house S?i -except-^..^ra's clothes and. the presents jfKas paid'for. And Jack will have to use Pinnore than one week's salary .every fSmonth in paying the rent of this flat. !*- : «GM I don't think it is right—I don't." % I looked around. Every one was e-iiaughing and eating ices, the gas burn- feang brightly, the gay little home was as S-charming to look at as before, but I ; SigToaned in my heart when I thought g ; -*hat before the honeymoon was -over a «ift3iordc.of collectors wonl'd^ be on bane |f:for the second instaUmonVpf pay for f%i,ll this gorgeous furniture, aflCI. vowed pi-'thatl would :neyer be gtiilty of "having IBa fine wedding when I married^ Even Is&Tvhen the happy couple drove away to jpithe railroad station, followed by rice §- iand old shoes, I could not help hnagm- W5ag that the demon of -debt rode away sferafli.them on the trunk rack. They 'tSwould find it impossible to escape him JF. - The maiden aunt and I continued our p-ffiscussion of Jack and Nora while we P?-were being driven to our boarding . All those foolish younsr people thirjk of is to m;i-ke a dash," slio said, doleful] v. "Tiu'y cms'.t liiro an expensive tenement bacH-nse. it wouldn't look wc!3 t>> lux- on rn unfashionable .sti-eet. Then CV-Y imi.-L boy line fiv--"'Uirc. tr match the nice hons-e. Of course Moi-a would not. do her own work, so three dollars a week must be sot apart for a servant girl. Nora, is going to retain her position ;is book-keeper; she s.iys she would rather work at the mill than do house work. Jack's salary won't more than pay 'for the table and the rent, so No ra.'s earnings will be necessary to buy the clothing and make up the installments on that furniture. This wcckling has cost a pretty penny. For my part, J should have much preferred a quiet ceremony, in the presence of half a doxen intimate friends. Hut no. Nora wanted to sec a column notice of her wedding in the newspapers; and then if 'she didn't invite people to her wedding, they wouldn't give her presents!" "How long will they be in paying fur the furniture?" 1 inquired. "At least a yoar, if they don't miss a payment and. lose some of it before then. Bytli.-t time it will begetting worn. They will never have the satisfaction of seeing a brand-new article in their house .that is wholly their own. Then again, Jack or Nora may be sick ajid unable to work. Their scheme of living can only be successful by both of them continuing to earn just as much as at present. They have left no margin; nothing is to be laid up for a rainy day. Then again, Nora's sister May is to board with them. Her board is what-they look forward to paying their'servant girl with. Now, I think the probabilities of Nora's getting along happily with Jack would be far greater if she would cease being a wage-earner herself, and if there was not going to be quite so large a family in their home. Until married people get used to their own peettlkcrities, they are better oft alonv, it seems to me. But then," she added, laughingly, ''I'm only an 'old maid,' and of course my opinion doesn't count. I'm a croaker, I suppose; and I only hope I've done all my growling for nothing.-" When I went to make the postnuptial call on Jack and Nora, I found the whole family in the parlor, admiring a large crayon portrait of Nora. "It's a terrible extravagance," said Nora, with a fond glance at Jack, "but this foolish fellow would insist upon having it. You see, before we were married he gave me his portrait—there it is, over there on the easel. He insisted that I should give him mine, and we really needed something to hang between the front windows. So I had it done. The artist was the same that did Jack's. lie was very accommodating, and says I needn't pay until I get good and ready. I'm sure I shan't," she adiied, archly, "for housekeeping is much more expensive than I ever supposed. -Do you know wa have eaten nine loaves of bread^the past week!" "Nine loaves of bread! Have you had much company?" I asked.' "Nobody but Jack and May, Bridget and I," she replied. "I suppose you have an honest girl?" "Honest!" exclaimed Jack; "she is more than honest;' she can make the most delicious cabinet pudding I ever tasted." ' "Yes," said Nora, laughing gleefully, "it is so expensive we made up our minds to only have it on Sundays, but she makes it so nice that we order it every other day." I went home,, thinking that Nora seemed very* -happy, and that she and Jack seemed to be cut out on the pattern by which millionaires were made. They certainly didn't fit into their present circumstances. As time went on, I heard occasionally from Jack and Nora. Their jewel of a girl was finally detected stealing sugar, and sent away minus a character. Being unable to suit themselves with another-servant .at once, their meals were taken, for a time, at -a restaurant. Then came, a, month whcn.'Nora's aunt informed me, in tears, that Jack had been unable to meet the installment furniture bill until a week, after it was due, and that only for the kindness of the merchant they would have lost some of their goods. .. ' "If it should happen again, he says he would not wait," said the aunt, "and then they would lose all their things, as well as the money already paid for them." However, the next payment was me1 promptly. Four months had elapsed since the marriage; it was now November, and the household expenses were increasing. How was an income that had barely covered the outgo in summer to be stretched .to include coal and-the extra gas bill? It was while trying to solve this problem, in her own mind, that Nora stepped on a bit of banan£ peel and sprained her ankle. It was nol a bad sprain, and had she been in gooc health Nora would have been able to return to work in a week. But the truth was that the young wife had worn her nerves threadbare in attempting to be housekeeper and bread-winner a' the same time. The ankle recovej-ed strength, but in the meantime Nora seemed ' to lose' all her briskness anc good humor. She became nervous and irritable, her hand shook if she tried to write, her head ached, she was.generally "blue." . The pretty furniture was o' no use now, for the parlor was kep closed. Nora lay on her bed—the bee that was not yet paid for and spent the remnants of her former activ ity in' worrying. 'Her aunt said to me, after a visit to the dainty fiat "I do decla.re,-itisreally too badtosei those two poor children—for they aren' much else. Nora lies in bed and fret because there's no money 'in the house to meet those awful installment bills The coal isn't paid for, she says, and th ice man has been .dunning them.- Sn begged me to always go up the back stairs when I came to see her, because i j makes her .nervous to have the fron door-bell ring, she's so afraid it's a bill The girl doesn't know how toicbok very- well, and they have to hire the washing done out, because she's not strong to do it. They want to get rid of her, but they must- pay her a month's wages first. The wardrobe. door was open while I was there, and I could see all Nora's wedding clothes. She had four silks, you know, besides her traveling dres;;, tija gown and the dress she was married in. Td give something to have the money those cost,' she said to me. She has lost her place at the mill; hey agreedto keep it for her two weeks, mt it is over three now, and they were obliged to notify Nora they could wait no longer. *She says she doesn't blama hem, but it makes'her most wish she need never get well, because she has no dea where to look for another place. 'If ,his • furniture was only paid for,' she said, 'I should almost enjoy being sick, tor I am getting really rested. It's hard work to stay in an office eight hours a day, and then come home to go out marketing, or down to an intelligence office looking for girls, 1 have lardly had a real restful evening since I began housekeeping. The doctor doesn't know when she'll be about again," continued the good aunt. "He ;alks about next spring, but Nora says ihey will starve if she isn't at work before then. Of course that is her exaggeration; but I guess it will be a hard jull for them anyway. 1 offered to .end her some money, if it would be of any use, though I can't spare it very well; but she only made a wry face and said: 'Why, auntie, we owe hundreds. Don't bother about us; we cooked our own trouble, and now I suppose we must eat it. I most wish I could die, for sick wives arfl only burdens to men; but just think of what the funeral bills would be! Poor Jack!' She laughed when she said this, but it's a pretty forlorn way for a br.de to talk." What was the end? Well, it was just •yhat might have been expected. Despairing of his pay, the merchant who sold the furniture claimed it, only as he was an unusually honest man he allowed them, as rebate for the money they had paid him, furniture enough to furnish three rooms. The fiat was given up, and in a tiny tenement Jack and Nora began life once more. Of course they were unhappy; of course they quarreled; of course Nora scolded Jack; of course Jack got discouraged and blamed Nora's sister May (not without reason) for making trouble between them. Nora never recovered her health sufficiently to go to work. She lost her ambition, neglected to curl her hair or make herself pretty, and had the discomforting knowledge that their little world was laughing at her and Jack, as it always laughs at those whose pride has a fall. If I ha<l begun with three rooms and ended with nine, people would have been congratulating me. but by beginning with nine and coming down to three I've just made myself ridiculous," sighed poor Nora. Nora died the next summer, when her baby was born. Poor Jack is now that most forlorn of beings, a young widower, with no money except what he earns from day to day, and a small child to bring up. This is a true story, but I have small hope that it will do away with beginning housekeeping "on the installment plan." The song of the siren merchant is always an enchanting one, for he knows that it is in human nature to be heedless of the price when the payment isleftforthe future. How seductive is the sound of "One dollar down and a dollar a month until paid!" What a small sum it looks to be! But just wait till pay-day comes, and perhaps on a large number^of articles. Beware of beginning married life in debt. A pretty bride once remarked: "There's plenty of anxiety in getting married without having debt added." A charming lady who gives large.dinner parties, and has a .mahogany table in 1 her dining-room, often re lates that the first - meal she ate with her husband was taken from the top of a dry~-goods box, which, covered with a neat cloth, was all the table she had for several weeks. She can laugh, as it is, but if she had started .with ma- hogjiny and coine down to a box, what a sad. tale that would have been. 1 never go to a wedding now without wondering: "Is it paid for?" . Yes, marriage will be a failure if the furnishing is done "on the installment plan."—Edith Miniter, in Good House keeping. ____^^_ WHY THE CANARY SINGS. As a Relief From Sorrow It Pours Forth Its Sons"You are ugly," said the blue-jay to the canary, posing on a limb outside and pluming her beautiful feathers: "you are only a common yellow color and your body is ill-shaped." "And you are caged," said a gay robin, turning her saucy head to 'one side with a superior air; "who woulc be shut up forever behind gilded wires? —not I—" and she flaunted away. "You are .passionless," said the love bird, cruel in her own happiness—even .as some women are —"you have no mate; you don't know how to love!" . "You are ungrateful," said her mistress; "I feed you "and you do not sing." Then the poor canary fell to grievm_ si.ently, day by day. Ugly and passionless and ungrateful—and .not even free Was not that sad? Then one clay they brought her a mate, and he abode with her. Yearning for love, she fancied f01 awhile that this was it; bat one sweet morn a lark called to her from across the green meadows to 'come out, come out for the skies were blue, and the waters were cool, and the very winds were perfumed of flow ers, and here was lc*?e, . love! Ant she longed to. go. Her little hear panted for freedom, after all these years, and she beat her poor bosom against the , cruel wires until 'it was bruised .and bleeding. O, to be.free free! But all in vain the desire, so she .sunk down, prone, suffering, crushed. Then,, all in a - moment, something -leaped up within her little beating breast—something strong and swee' and passionate, and r .out of that swell ing, uncertain throat flowed such a lyrical gush of melody that the whole wotfd stood still to listen. So, song was jorn in trie canary's soul, and so it 'ound its w ay to expression and cheered many a lonely heart, and comforted nany a sorrowful one. And the mad world praised her, and those who had sneered at her i were silent of envy. But ^ only said: "I am ugly, and I am passionless and I am ungrateful—and I am not even free! Is it not sad?" And with the 'song still flowing from her ips, and with the hushed world still istening, she poured out her little leart to death.—Ella Higginson, in West Shore. —A batch of new peers having just een made, a certain Duchess was not sure whether she was in the habit of visiting one of the newly-created peeresses, and she referred to the 1'ootman- .n-waiting to whom she was accustomed ;o deliver her cards. "Do I visit Oady B.V" she asked. "Your. Grace," John replied, "has not visited her since creation." 'S READY RELIEF.
