An ignominious death is required, and you are ifoins; to receive it ut my hands!" "Afathur kill his son:" "There is here neither father nor son I There is, on tho other hand, far from every tribunal, a man whoLl the law has consecrated a judge, who has never laid aside that character despite his uitwoutod forfeiture, and who should pronouiii'e your death sentence I That sentence I will execute. Follow me." He drugged him behind somu rorhs which hid both of them from the sii;ht of Diinitri's companions, The latter sretned to have divined a stormy explanation between the father nud son, and held themselves Iu readiness to fly to the assistance of theii comrade. Dimitri, livid, regarded his father with that fixed glance which a criminal fastens on his executioner at tho moment of execution, for the young man felt that he wus about to receive his death at his father's hands. "Father, your will be done!" murmured he. "There are words which should not be profaned," said Yermac, iu u stern voice. "Give me your holt!" "For what purpose ?" "To tie you to a tree." "It is useless; you shall see that I know howtodlo. When I am dead, you will have to push me to make me fall." "Obey; this binding Is a humiliation tc Which you should iiuhmit." "If so, I consent to it. Do as you will." Dimitri took off und handed him his Ions woollen belt. Mis father, pushing him against a larch, passed it around his body ,ond4ied it in u lemit behind tho tree; thuu he placed hiinsolf before his son. He drew from the leather belt, which kept them at his sides, his two revolvers and aaid, with, emotion which li« did not strive to hide: "You are about to die, Dimitri—alas! iu this place 1 Wio could have told me so the day you were born I—Ah! if your mother— Dimitri, turn your thoughts to God! Pray, my child!" "But, first, father, shall I huve your pardon after I am deadJ" "Yes, when you have expiated—" A cold sweat broke out ou the chief of police's forehead. The Judge was awakening in the father. "Farewell, father; I die ropenUmt!" murmured Dimitri. And ha closed his eyes. Yenmao drew back three puces. Ho held one of his pistols in each hand. He aimed them at Diinitri's breast, ready to lire This horrible scoue wus illuminated by the bloody glare thrown from the destroyed forest. Suddenly, Yunmu; shiKxorod, sank down and lay stretch" 1 upon the ground; beseem,ed stricken wlt'.i that doatli which he wish- y^d to give. -'Father!" cried Dimitri, with a sob of un- (sh. 4ie chief of police could not hear him.

In the distance, the' forest had finished burning, Hare and there, arose, from half- extinguished clumps, columns of smoke like broad watered ribbons* The day, slow to come and very short at this season, at length, dawned, gradually blanching that which yet remained In the sky of the glare of the ooa-" flogration. CBAPTEil St.—Tirg ttUSOJTBB. . At this moment, from behind an undulation of tho soil, row up afi enormous ani- ninl, a boar with brown fur and black limbs, the shoulders of which were encircled by a white bund resembling a Collar. The beast stopped nnd suddenly showed fearful onorgy, occasioned, doubtless, by the gnnnrings of its stomach, it went to the brigand) who lay stretched in death Upon tho snow tinged pink by the conflagration of the forest. It-walked around the corpse, smelloil it, and, taking a convenient position, calmly bogali to devour it. Wlion. tho creature had swallowed tho flesh, which it tore to pieces with Its sharp nails nnd crunched with its powerful Jaws, it Wont, dripping with blood, towards the chief of police. Wns tho latter about to be eaton in his turn? Tho boar turned tho motionless and paralyzed body and, afterwards, .methodically, turned It back s then it seated itself upon its haunches, reflected for an instant and decided, like tho good economist it wns, that, having oaten enough, for that day, aud even for several days, it should reserve the rest of its provisions for a .time of need. ' It seized Yermao by tho arm and, without sinking its pointed tooth too deeply in the flesh, dragged his body Hi the direction ol a littlo elump of dwarf lives. Arrived there. It dug a hiding-place in the earth with its nulls, in whieh It carefully laid the chief of police. Tho boar broke some small branches, artfully placed thorn over tho food magazine il had Just established, and covered the whole with SHOW, which it deftly ]iroj«otel with its hind paws, turning its back to th > little m^und. This done, it went to complete its digestion somewhat further off, and, perhaps, to scoff nt some brown untiflitre having a loss keen scout and less 'activity. • Meanwhile, tho fugitives—Yegor, Nndego, M. Laflour, and tho littlo Pole—after having escaped from the torrent of Humes which rau from south to north, were returning, skirting tho linnienso Inuundascont furnace, over the custom road, by which Tekol and tho liberating si origin would arrive in a few days. The}' had heaped upon two of their lioises. 'which they hail suwnndod in recovering, the pologuo, some saved provisions, the arms and tho clothing, and wore progressing, Yegor aud M. Laflour each leading u horse by tho bridle. They wore advancing slowly by tho intermittent light of the conflagration. An hour after the burial of tho chief oi police, the fugitives reached tho spot where tho bloody light between Yermue and the gold-robbers had occurred. They saw blood scattered about iu profusion, und the remains of a devoured human corpse. All stood mute with amazement nt this hideous spectacle. On looking closer, Ladislas perceived a trace of blood upon tho snow, ai If a wounded IEBH hud dragged himsell away. He imparted his discovery to Nad- ego. "There must bo a wounded man not fat from bore!" cried the young girl. "Hoe this blood, Mousieurs, and this trodden snow. Oh! if we huve come soon enough to save one of our kiud!" "Let ua look into this mutter." suid Yegor They fastened the horses to tho trees, In a neighboring valloy, a growl was heard. It was the boar with the white col- tar. "We must not stray too far," said M. Lalleur, prudently holding his gun in his hand, prepared for whatever might happen. Tho whole party advanced to tho mound beneath which Yormac lay. This hiding- place seemed mysterious to them. Yegor and the littlo Polo got down upon thoirlcnees anil scraped away tlio snow with their huii'ls, while M. Lafleur, with his gun upon his shoulder, kept guard over them. Tho snow romofed and the branches taken from their position, in the light reflected by tlie cluiids of smoke hovering over the forest in combustion, Yegor, Ladislas und Nudogo saw a man—a dead man Interred. "A corpse!" exclaimed they, simultaneously, with different degrees of emotion. A sigh answered thorn. "Ho is not dead!" cried Yegor. And he felt his heart. "It beats strongly!" added ho, full of hopo. "Oh! what good fortune for us!" cried Nadoge. "My friends, we are allowed to do a good action—which will somewhat con- solo us for the cruel extremities to which you were compelled to resort; you can restore this life in place of tho otherlifo in the denies! Couiideueo, Yegor! This is a good omen for tho success of your courageous enterprise." ^Tho chief of police was placed in a silting posture by Yegor, aided by M. LaHeur, who had forgotten the boar and its growls. Yegor, frightened at seeing the distorted features and closa'l uyos of the chief of police, thought thu sight a vision of tho bniiii. "Ah! Nadejje!" cried he, "do not spoil. of that man of tho defiles -you fill me with terror I" M. La/lour, with opon mouth, v/.u ulso staring with fright. Yermac, at hist, opened bis eyes. "Thank you I" said ho. "It is, indeed, tho chief of police!" nta;n mered Yegor, in extruinti astonis'.unont. "Whoever you aru, I thank yon!" again said tho exhumed man. -'You havo taken a heavy mountain from my breast." The reflections of the i/onllagratiou grow more intense, suddenly increased, with cracklings indicating that the flames hud found now food. "What! is it you, Monsieur Seinonoffl- isityou, Monsieur Luflmirf On I owe my lifo toyou-.toyoul Whore is my soul What huve they done with Dimitri t His night— aud I am wounded in thu right arm—1 am losing blood. Have you, He/iionoff und M. Lafleur, como to llnish met Did you bury me ulivo beneath tho snow, as tho othorday you strove to bury mo alive beneath the rocks f That was cowtirdly. But explain yourselves—speak I" Yegor and M. Lallour had lost the power of speech. Naclego was on tho point of fainting, and littlo Ladislus, after huvihg retreated several steps, was making pro- cipitate signs of Uie WOKS, ouo after another. "Monsieur Yorwac," said tho exile, finally, "there is iu ull this tho intervention of u higher power! It is to aid you that wo are hero. Fear nothing. And if I havo douo you grievous wrongs, / offer to repair thorn. But you yourself do not attribute to chance tho strange circumstance that, after having loft you for dead in tho ileliles of tlio Vorkho- Yansk Mountains, wo should disinter you In this spot. Youaro wounded; wo will care for you." M. Lafleur added a few words whieh on- lightened tho ohiof of police us to how he came in tho hole. As u commentary, the boar was still growling in thu distance. As a further proof, M. Luflour shoived the remains of Uio corpse spread out upon the ground. JivorythliiK wus explained. "I thank you, Mossiours," suW , Yoriuoo, getting upon his foot. "I utti lit botUir condition than I thought. Bo wo arc ijults, Monsieur SomonofC. Now, you can uo longer deny that you aro in full flight, you and sho whom you cull your butrolkoU, as well us her brother! I urrest you all throe!" Yogor made u inovoinoiit, Nadegu grow pale, und litUo Ludislim burst into tours; but M.

"You would denounce tal* "Yes," Yego* was silent for ah Instant, admiring the chief's firmness and rourngd, and think' Ing how he could secure his silence without Staining himself with a critne.

Now that you are In our hands, uov« that fate has maa6 you our prisoner, will you give us your word that you will notsaeh to escape from us!"' "No." What a strange nature was that of Yer- mac, who discharged his policeman's functions without tho least pnSslon, with the absence of every Interest. Duty ana law!— those two words summed up for him life, tho world and society, His conscience, pure, sincere, just nnd free from ovoly secret end, had made htm nn austere, Impassible nnd Impenetrable man. Ho looked bis adversaries In (bo face, as tho lion looks ut Its foes. Disgusted at hiding himself, nt crouching in n corner to await tho passage of his proy and hurl himself Upon It unexpectedly, he acted openly, loyally, oven with those who were In insurrection against the law.

Ludlslos advanced, hairing slung across his buck the very gun and showing in his bolt the very pistols in question. 'Keep those nrnis, my child," mild M, Laflour to him. ' . . "So you dlflarin mo. However, my safety demands—" "Wo will protect you, Monsieur!" said the dunciiig-mastor. A moment will come, Monsieur Yormue," added Yegor, "whon I will return to you even the governor general's gun, bogging you to restore it to him with my compliments. Well, Messieurs, suppose we pitch our tents and prepare our cump for the night." -,K Meanwhile, tho evening hud arrived, uud, iu tho distance, the last fires of th'3 con-. Bunied forest wore dying out. CnATTF.K XII.—A TUP.ASITHK-THOVK. "You are our prisoner on parole," said M. Laflour to the chief of police. '•I am your prisoner,* if you will." answered the latter, "but you are none the less tho prisoners of the Gzur, arrested in the net of violating tho law by me, Yor- mue, chief of police of Yukoutsk. Youi friends rcniuin accused of an attempt to es- cupo with armed bund, and you uro aiding thorn." I shall not try to wriggle out of that,' said M. Laflour. It wns not easy to make tho arrangement; for passing the night. Tho snow hud uguic begun to fall. By the light of a lantern, Yegor and M. Lufleur made the couch ol Nudege uud her adopted brother against a high rook, using for Hint purpose tho wurm- est furs they possessed. Some saplings formed the frame-work of a very low root which they covered with thick cloth. While these preparations were in progress, Nadege drew from her sack, whicl hod happily escaped from the disaster, some blackish flour with which she hulf-fllled a huge wooden porringer. She ulso poured In some cold water drawn from the torrent by Ladislas, and stirred tho mixture with i spoou. The flour made of oats, dried in at oven and carefully sifted, swelled and overflowed tho porringer. Nadege offered each one a share; after all. It wus quite agreeabli food. Yegor, the Parisian, aud Yermau at last rolled themselves in the remaining furs The dog Wab commenced to walk around the tent and tho bodies stretched upon thr ground, which the snow begun to cover. Under the animal's guard, everybody reposed from the multiplied emotions of thi day. The first to awake—It was tho chief ol police—perceived tho companions of bis open air slumbers looking like small mound! beneath' their coverings of snow, which While imparting- to them a certain amountnl heat, gave thorn tho uppourance of lying under heaps of white fouthers. Yermae, disturbed by their immobility shook them. M, Lufleur had some trouble to free bia head. Ho appeared under tho picturesque guise of tho good man Winter, as seen In December in the window* of the Paris confectionary shops, with otter-skin wool pulled down about his eyes and spotted with snow, his hair powdered with hour frost.Uil* nose rod and bis garments us white us those of a miller.

KKMM LEU'S D1SATJI J'AINLKSS, Thou Ueulure* n 1'liynlclau WlM tliu M urduror'il Jlliiod HUKKA/.U, N. V., Sept. 8.—Dr, Qiltoe E. Pell says that the microscopic examination of blood taken from the murderer, Kemmler, immediately after bis oxeeutioii by electricity have developed interesting changes, lii the blood which betook from tlie head, near where Hie current was lip- plied, there were niiirKcd changes of the corpuscles. Tim arterial Hood taken by Dr. Daniels wus examined by Dr. Miller, of the Niagara university. As yet Dr. Fell has not had time to examine the parts of the tissue whieh he secured, but he sajs it is now well established that death from tho application of electricity is not the result of the lesion of thu tissues, but is due to shock, the same as often results from surgical injury, such as the iM-ufehing of a limb, All tho newspaper declarations to tho contrary notwithstanding. Dr. Fell persists that Kennuler'a deash was immediate and painless, and that the humanity of the method was proved. Such utandurd publications as the Scientific Americun,. the American Medical Journal and the Nation have approved (he use of electricity for the execution of criminals upon the experience with Kemmler.

There Was a man in the village -who had a gift of painting, I did not know him-^he ivas before my time— but I have seen a small picture of his, of two children clinging .to the back of a rough pony, whieh if not quite coi-rectly drawn, has yet a motion, a life in it, that some B. Al's might envy. The man ended miserably; took to drinking, I think, and could hardly eke out a liveihood by sorry sign-painting. Too often unconv non gifts among the poor are at best dotii Fatal!, leading those who possess them, and who have no cower to cultivate them, to unrest and dissatisfaction with, their surroundings. The blackgmith writes poetry, and not very bad poetry either. One family havo been known for a couple of generations as "musical." The father plays the diddle: the mother had a fine voice: the eldest daughter, a sweet pretty girl of _9 or 10, was found playing tunes on her pin-cushion i she hud arranged the pins in rows like a key board, and pulled them in and out according to the notes she wished to to strike. Now she is being taught to piny the piano, to her great joy_. The strong unconscious passion of the liven of the poor men, is''love of work. What they feel most bitterly when the insvitable "rheumatics" creep up from the toes to the ankles, from the ankles to the knees, from the knees to the hips, till there is nothing left to do but sit in tho chair and wait for the least travel—is that they ram work no . more. One man broke a blood vessel in the hay-field;-in in two hours he was back mowing, 1 ! and mowed till bed-time, when ho lay down not to rise for manv a day. Sadder still than loss of work from illness or old age, is its loss to the still able- bodied man from economic changes, which may have brought gain to the community, but which of a certainty have pressed hard on tho wdividual. In the country there were once so many little industries which could be pursued ut home, employing thus the hands of those who were unfit for field labor. Now there are none. 1 know a man who wns n friend of mine, for be had sold n)<? rabbits when I wns a child; he was a good old man, in a dim, muddleheaded way; but his neighbors thought ill of him, and the farmers especially—who knows that be had not done a little poaching in his time? He followed the trade of a shoe-maker and this, for so long as he could sit at his last, seems to promise a maintenance for himself, his old wife and his orphan irrnndchild. Hut fashions in shoes changed; there was some new method in cobbling—I never quite understood what—which he could not master. All thevilhige customers left him'and went to buy ready-made shoes at the market town. The thing weighed on his spirits and he talked of putting an end to his life. Ho was asked not to do'it by one who was kind to him, und whom he liked; but this friend went abroad one autumn aud tho old nun took the opportunity by hanging himself on a tree in his garden. Tho grandchild had lost her parents of consumption when she was a baby. She used to bring me flowers; wonderful were those nosegays brought weekly by her and the other children! Such mugnificience of iris and kingcups and water-lines and red poppies and ragged robins! Such sweetness of violets and cowslips and honeysuckle! Each child had her own way of arranging the flower", no by tho nosegay I knew the child before hearing her name. The old man's grandchild rather looked down on wild flowers; cabbage-rose and white pink, southern-wood and rosftmnry were her offerings. Sho is in service now; the other day she wrote to me; "I love you and tnke my best love from me, 1 write this short note to let you know that I love you and often think about yon." Village life is not wanting in tragedies. There was a poor woman whose son had gone a good deal to the bad, and having been sent to jail, committed suicide before his trial. Ilia mother, till she died, wus tormented by the thought of that net, which seemed fraught with evil and terror to her simple mind. No kindly counsel could quiet her sorrow. She carried it to the grave. This accusation out of her own soul, of him who had been the light of her eyes, while the world forgot or excused, perhaps had in it M tragic elements ns the mother's revolt against tho world's justice in Rizpaii. One common form of village tragedy, passive yet full of pain, is the disappearance of cons, husbands, fathers, who go to foreign hinds, and are heard of no more. Many of them no doubt arc not heard of because thny do not wish to be, Some go away and die. An old woman told me often of how she had dreamt of the deaths of three of her sons; one had died in Birningham, another in India; of these two Inter news had confirmed her dreams. Gut of the third, hn whom she had. seen surrounded by great waters, die had never heard, she wuu convinced, nevertheless, that ho had been drowned. She was u hard-headed old soul in other respects, and of.queenly manners; when she rose to j grfet you she feeuied to bo conferring a regal favor. She had a severe opinion of i a cunite who had not won her good graces, she said: He spoke to me of my neighbors when I wished to hear of my soul." Sho was a keen theologian. "In • the book you lent me," she remarked, "it is said, 'So-and-so wont to heaven.' Surely none may go to heaven before thp last day!" Sho kept her poor house as tidy ns her own irreproachable' white caps, and had an instinctive shrinking from any one who sought to interfere, even on the plea of giving help. When sho sickened in her lost illness she was 83 or 84. She ro fnved to send for a doctor, saying: "(f itnybodv thinks 1 uui going to imiko my sto'niiich un niiot-hccary shop ho will find out his mistake." 1 HUW h»i as she was clyinir; she hud lain in a. sort of coma, from which it wus not thought she would revive. Hut when I came in she roused herself, because, perhaps, she had boon fond of uie ever since i was a child; und when we were alone she poured into my ears, in the most collected way, her grievances against tho woman hired in these last days to attend hpr, who, she wa* sure, was upsetting everything in the house, and whom sho suspected of extracting a dole of I™, "1 pray tho Lord to take mo out of this troublesome world," sho wound up. and next day she was taken out of it. The good milliners of the old English poor are forever to bo admired. Tho old woman who dearly longs to see tho girl, now couie back as a married woman, whom she hud always known and eared for, will yet not be guilty of the fashionable vice of staring in order to gratify her wish. "I did t want to ace her, and I knew sue was in Teh," suid this self-respecting old lady Oi. : vor 80 years;''but 1 did not like to look (u 1 passed her." What good English they talk, most cf them!

Some, people may say iti despair that the people don't like good literature; but that remains to b6 proved. What is unquestionable is that certain things ate adapted to their stage of mental growth, find certain tilings are not, Offer them all that is good, fresh and cleat), and let them choose. Their choice, perhaps will sutnrise ue. Bertha, who was my rmrse-nmid, liked of all things in literature, those brief translations by Longfellow from Dante a description of Beatrice, wbioh were published aaionsfhis shorter poems, before we issue of the complete tefnion of the "tJevina Cpmmedia." The poor like the. objective, the direct; they like a iaatt to be sure of what he thinks and believes, and not to be suspended ih a nebulous luster of half t>er- ceptions. They are outspoken themselves —a little too much so. It pains one to speak before their invalids. A poor pet- son is never so happy as when he can sa'y —"Oh! you don't look bad/' "Sliemakes rue think of her poor sister: she's going just the same, and my husband's family Went that way too; there are six of them He in your church-yard, all along of the decline/' This speech is delivered in presence of the daughter of 14, who perhaps has only a red patch ou her cheek to give ground for this ruthless condemnation. 1 have wondered the effect^uch speeches have on those to whom this relates. H may be that, generally, they, produce no effect at all. Sometimes the sick contemplate their end with a prosaic stoicism which take's away one's breath. A carpenter (he rose to be a master builder, and had a passion for old violins) went to see n Quaker friend of his on his death-bed. "Now you're here, William,"said the sick "just measure mo for my coffin; 1 shall be"gone in a day or two, and it will save no end of trouble." William said be had never done such a thing, and in fact declined. The man died iu two days. Occasionally, however, I have noticed extreme sensitiveness. At the cottage hospital a young girl dying of consumption cried for two days because one of the patients began'talking about an out house used as a. mortuary by tho name of V'dead- house," "1 do hot want to be put in tho dead house I" she said weeping. Dear, tender-hearted little Nellie! Wefl I remember her bright, eager face. Hers is one of tho many livw 1 hayo seen cut off by the same fatal illness,—lives pure' and sweet, of the flower of village girlhood, which, when they draw near their close, seem not to enter into gloom, but rather to receive tho effulfiMnce of a spiritualized glory, as of a calm ranset. If gipsies are particular about water, the laboring man is particular about bread. It is a fine thing for the English laborer that he alone aniong workers eats thu best bread. There is good bread for the rich everywhere, but what is the bread of tho poor? Where else would the cottage woman deem'it the >no«t exquisite compliment she can pay the ludy of the big house to_ offer her a loaf of her own making? In Germany, where the peasant shares his black hunch with his horse? In Italy, where the nnsaltcd, half-mixcd.bread. sold to the poor, is so unpalatable" (hut they fall back on the unwholesome monotony of polenta? The English have ono or two superstitions about their bread. That which is baked on Good Friday is warranted to keep pood through the your. A woman used to send me a ffoocl Friday "twist" every year, and it certainly never turned moldy, but I cannot positively assert that'll plain Monday cake would not have ker t us well. The children grow up and thrive on this excellent bread, with a little jam or treacle of butter to embellish it. Not long sincfl a baby girl of two was asked: "Where's little sister?" "At 'chool," "And where's tall sister?" "Working for butter." "What?" "Working for butter." "She means," f aid tho mother, coming to the rescue, "working for bread nnd butter, but she forgets the bread." Good Friday is a dav chosen for various little private tusks. There is no harm in getting through a stroke of work «hcn you have come home ,,,from church. A woman announced that on that day her husband would lay tho first stone of the pig-sty. This nig-sty was the chateau en Espagneof all the family. It wns to be erected out of the savings of tho good woman, who had done littlo charring that winter. "When you come along the fieldh," you will KC« it." Aye, nnd sight will not be tho only sense lo which it appeals. Kvery village has its hunchback. In this instance he wus u poor, half-witted creature, the butt of tho village . ragamuffins, gamins and gtimines. Physically ho' was extremely strong, but mentally he was disqualified from working three days together. He wont to prison and not to church. A young lady showed him some kindness—she sent him on errands, und then he earned a fe,v pence; but in general bhe did not give him money—tho kindness wus of another sort, kind words, Hud looks. ] can see the tivo now, • the la^t. time they met; it was by the side of the littlo river; the hunchback WUB trying lo catch a roach or a carp. By this hidcoiiH tvpe, in its rugs and dirt, stood the fair slight form in a closo-iitting black drerH, with golden hair a littlo disarranged by tlio wind. Round nbout the yellow Hugs were in llower. What they suid 1 do not know; perhaps she ppoko of a hereafter w her ft there would be no mishapcn ones; no rays, no scoiling boys.

Ami fill tlio hunchback broke his neck fullinc throughja'.trap-door ho would always ask nftiir lier.'sayingj'shyly, as if to h mseli'; "She was good to mo," i The poor, especially tho poore-st of tjj poor, resent anything which seems like taking a libertj with them. They halo condescension. I innocently said to one woman, tho wife of a terrible umuvais suiet, that her son looked a nice, honect lot 1 . "Oh, he's very honest—1 can answer, for that.," she answered; "let us »ay that ho looks the picture of health!" It would huve been impossible to suggext in a more polite but impressive way that it wus no business of mine to pass judgment on tho moral qualities of her off-spring. The main, I had almost said the solo, coiisidertttion in peasant inurriiiges abroad is the dowry. The marriages of the English poor may be improvident, but at least they tiro supremely disinterested. There occur cases which havo quite us much romance in thorn an most three volumes. The plainest girl in the village wits betrothed to u young man whom Uie would not marry whilo her aged, paralysed mother had need of her. Tho young man wailed 10 years, and then lie wont away. Vlio village pitied the girl till the more whon jn one year more tho mother died, and she wus free from her self-imposed charge. Of. course the lover would never bo heard of again, it WHS said; nnd the pirl, poor thing, always plain, wus so uncompromisingly ugly now! Hut, to tho umtv/.omont of all, the lovor citiiie back one day from India with a nice little sum iu hie pocket, and forthwith married bis plain betrothed), with whom ho set up in a liltlti shop, which 1 believe is doing well. This is tho story of a long courtnliip; its an ending Twill give the story of a short one. At the nmrriugo of her brother, there wus uo one to walk to church With Agnes, so her mother sent across to the small farm by the river to ask if the young mm there wouldn't mind obliging, Thu young man cowi's and succumbs.

"Oh, no! she's rather too younpj don t you think so?" „ Til) then I did not know that among the English poor the iiotion prevailed that children were out of place at a wedding; a notion rooted among all classes oft th* continent, where our baby bridesmaids would create Strangest impression. I did not make matters wOfse'by asking if the mother hefself was not to be the bridal party. Parents are not present at their children's weddings— a relic to tnyttiihd of the times when the bridegroom carried of bis bride without asking anybody s consent, Kingsley, in "Yeast," mentions the parental abstention, Signaling, as a mark of the extrehie misery of the district he describes; but this is certainly a misreading of its drift.- At G o'clock on the morning after the wedding those who are looking out of their windows into the midsummer air see the young couple run down tho hill to to the bridge, hand in hand, like happy children; he to his work in ' the builder's yard, she to hers at the factory. Next year a child is born, and then the little, so little, child dies. The news was taken to the young father in the work- yard by a workman who lived next door to his cottage. "Mr. Strait was very kind about it, s.tid Liitzio. my informant; "he did not tell him with all the others there. lie said, 'I'vegotsomethingto^ay toyou'; nnd then, when he was .outside, he told liim, 'Your baby is dead!' " After the funeral, Lime told me. "Agnes filled the coffin with flowers, and it looked very nice. I/ittleAnnio came to see it n Annie was Fred's sister, three years old. "She kept a saying, 'Oh! how small ! — what a little, little coffin.'" Fred fell ill and could do nothing for many months, and when ho got belter his place had been filled, and he could not find work. Agnes kept him nnd herself too by working at the factory. She used to feel tired often ; but she did it quito bravely and simply, without ever a complaining word. Then another babe was born, and they all moved to Derby. Fred wrote: "Wo were both very sorry to leave without seeing you, as you have been such a friend to us, but I could not get anything to do, and 1 was tired ot lotting Agnes work to keep me, and tho people saying that I was idle, which I never deserved." Defective spell ing, but sound sentiment. He has kept his place ever since in tho Midland carriage works, and now out of hij economies he can manage to give Agnes to giv s a pretty black silk dress, and to take her on fine holidays for a trip to Mat-lock or Buxton. MlHgnvernincnt of CUIoN. . From a "Topic of the Time," with the above title in The Century for September, we quote ns follows: ''It cannot bo denied Hint our unrestricted suffrage makes the problem more difficult here than it is abroad; but the difficulty is not in- surmoiintab'e, and itis not. asit inofrcn claimed to be, the chief cause of our troubles. Wo. are in the habit of charging all our worst evils to be combined ignorant corrupt vote, but them is not a city in tho land in which that vote is not many thousands less than the combined intelligent and honest vote. The trouble is that the latter vote, misled by party mimes and party issues which have no bearing upon questions of municipal rule, is about evenly divided in most municipal elections, an'l is thus deprived of nearly nil its' influence. When the happy day shall come that the respectable voters <if our cities join hands and sny that henceforth they will know no politics in the ndminiH- tintion of city affairs, and will only aid a candidate whether or no he isf fit and honest, then there will no longer be any danger to apprehend from tho combined ignorant and vicious vote. It will make very little difference what kind of a system wo have upon which to govern the city when this spirit shall have entered into the election of its olliciuls, but until we can secure that spirit in tlie election it will bo useless to hope for reform under the most perfect system which the human mind can devise, for nn ideal system administered by" ijjnorantand corrupt men cannot produce intelligent and honest government without performing a miracle," Cliiniitr llml Aclilttvimttttit.

Life, in its fulness and richness and fruitfulness, is developed and enjoyed only where the climate is fickle. Tho ambition, energy, inventiveness, and general capacity which have made our civilization what it is, and which are yet to make America a greater nation than tho world bus seen, are, to a large extent, (he results of a variable climate. Henry Ward Beecher used to say that tho land whore no cellar was dutr was tho hind of feebleness and insanity. Doubtless we owe in uch of our development to Irci* iiiHtitiitions.

The advantages of fruit on the table are shown by chemistry and physiology to be •eal. These substances are contained: A arge percentage of water, grape or fruit or, free organic acids (malic in the apple, tartaric in the grapo and critic in the lemon), albuminoids or protein, pectose, a substance which makes fruit jellies, and cellulose, tho material forming the cell walls. Fruits also contain a small quantity oE mineral salts. The important dietetic effect of these minerals can scarcely bo over-rated. They underiro acidification in the body, which lowers the temperature of the' blood, correcting the tendency to feverish ness, iind keep many of ths organs of the body in u normal, healthy condition. It is supposed that the organic acids tend to destroy disease germs that may have found lodgment in the body. All good fruits, when perfectly developed and matured, are easily digasted. Tho Kimimil of the Tooth. (iood Housekeeping. A tooth inits normal condition consists of four parts of substance—enamel, ce- innnt, dentine and pulp. Enamel is the outer covering of the crown or exposed portion of tho tooth, and by a wise provision of nature it is thickest where most subject to use and wear. It is the hardest tissue of the human system, possesses of itself no sensibility, and contains not over 4 per cent, of animal matter. Yet it in an important fact, and one which should not be lost siorht of in caring for the teeth, that this indispensable coating: is almost en tirely soluble in acids. Cement is tho bonolike covering of the roots arid neck of the teeth, corresponding to the converted portion to the enamel, with which it blends and unites about the edffe of the gums, for the exposed part. Dentine forms tho body of the tooth. It is not so hard us bone, consisting of parallel tubas about 4,500 to an inch in diameter, nnd inoru than a uuarterof its composition consists of umnuil mutter. It is somewhat sensitive, but tho sensation is probably duo to the nerves of the pulp, The latter, commonly called "the nerve, "is," muss of nerves and blood vessels, film inflnitesimal in in size, connected and ei wrapped by u very delicate tissue. .Tl: nerves and blood vessels connect with thi general system through a minute openin at the extremity of the roof, with whicl exception the pulp is tUe germ of the bod^ of the tooth, tlm dentine )s formed from it and nourished from it; wheu the pulp— which is extremely sensitive, as most readers know—dies, the dentine looses its apparent sensitiveness and gradually changes color—itself becomes deud, It's Excellent Qualities Ctn»m«nd to publlo Approval tho California Hquld fruit remedy, Syrup of Flfs.
