Tell Your Wife. “Tell my wile ! ” said Aaron Little speaking aloud, yet to himself, in a half amused half, troubled way. ‘Tell my wife, indeed ! Much good that wil do ! What does she know about business, and money matters 1 and the tricks of trade? No, no ; there’s no hope there/ A*nl Aaron Littie sat musing with a perplexed countenance. He held a newspaper in his hand, and his eyes ! had just been lingering over a para graph In which the writer suggested to business meii in trouble the propri ety of Coilsuiting their wives. Talk to them freely about your af fairs,’ it said. Let them understand exactly your condition. Tell them of your difficulties, of your embarrass ments, and you'* plans for extricating yourselves from the entanglements in which yon are involved, My word for it, you will get help in nine cases out of ten. Women have quick per ceptions. They reach Conclusions by a nearer way than reasoning, and get at the solution of a difficult question long before your slow moving thoughts bring you near enough for acurate > b ser various Tell your wives* then inen in trouble, all about your affairs! Keep nothing back. The better they un derstand the matter, the better, will be their perceptions. “ All a very fine theory,” said Aaron Little, tossing the newspaper fl'otti him, and leaning hack in bis chair.— “ But it won’t do in my case. Tell Betsy ! Yes I’d like to see myself do ing it. A man must be hard pushed indeed, when lid goes home to tem suit his wife on business affairs. And so Aaron Little dismissed the subject. He was in considerable doubt and perplexity of mind Things had not gone well With him for a year nst. Dull business and bad debts ft his affairs in rather an un coil using Condition. He could not see his way clear for the future.— Takri . a» t had been tor the past six months, he could not imagine wit' die resources at his com maud, Ills matured payments were to be made. “ I must get more capital,’ he said to himself ‘That is plain. Vud with more capital must come in a partner. I don’t like partnerships. It is diffi cult for two men to woik together harmoniously. Thhr ou may pet en tangled with a ror It’s ar.oky bu siness But I see no other wa v out of this trouble. My own capi too light for the business lam do g, and as a measure of safety more must be brotight in. Lawrence is anxious to join me, and he says he can command ten thousand pounds. I don’t like him in all respects ; he is a little to fond of pleasure But I want his money more than his aid in business. He might remain a silent partner if he chose.— I'll call and see him tnis very night and have a little talk on the subject. If he can bring in ten thousand pounds I think that will settle the matter, With this conclusion in his mind; Aaron Little returned home, after closing his warehouse for the day.— Tea being over, he made preparations for going out, with the intention of calling upon Mr. Lawrence. As he leached his hand tor his great coat, a voice seemed to say to him— “ Tell your wife. Talk to her about it.” But he rejected the thought instant ly and commenced drawing on his coat, ** Where ta’C ton going, Aaron ? * asked Mrs. Little, coming forth Irom the dining room.'. ■ . “ Out for a little while,” he replied, I’ll be back in half an hour or so.” “Out where ? ” “ Tell her, Aaron. Tell her all about it said the voice, speaking in his mind. “ Nonsense ! She don’t understand anything about business. She can’t help me,” lie answered firmly. “ Tell vour wife! ” The words were in his mind, and would keep repeating themselves. “Can’t you say where you are going, Aaion? Why do you make a mystery ’of it?” CARROLLTON, GEORGIA, FRIDAY MORNING, JANUARY 5, 1872. r “ Oh, it’s only a matter of business. I I’m going to see Air Lawrence.” I “ Edward Lawrence ? ” “Yes.” “ Tell your wife ! ” The words seemed almost as if uttered aloud in his ears. “ What are you going to see him about * ” « Tell her ! ” Mr. Little stood irresolute. What good would telling her do ! “ What’s the matter, Aaron? You’ve been dull for some time past. Noth ing going wrong with you I hope?” and his wife laid her hand on his arm and leaned toward him in a kind way. “ Nothing very wrong,” he answer ed in an evasive manner “ Business has been dull this season.” k' “ Has it ? I'm sorry. Why didn’t toil - -me ? ” “ What good would that have done ? ” “ It might have done a great deal of good. When a man's business is dull, bis wife should lo«>k to the household expense, but if she knows nothing about it, she may go on in a way that is really extravagant under the cir cumstances. I think that men ought always to tell their wives when any thing is going wrong.” “ You do ? ” ‘ ‘Certainly I do. What better rea son can you want than the one I have given ? If she knows that the income is reduced, as a prudent wife, she vv ill end' avor to reduce the expenses.— Hadn’t you better take off your coat and sit down and talk with me a lit tle before you go to see Mr. Law rence ? ” Mr. Little permitted his wife to draw off his overcoat- which she took into the passage ami replaced on the hat rack. Then returning into the parlor she said l “ Now Aaron talk to me as freely as You choose. Don’t keep anything back. Whatever the trouble is, let me know it to the full extent.” “ Oh, there’s no very great trouble yet lam only afraid of trouble, I see it coming and wish to keep out of its way, Betsy.” “ That’s wise and prudent, said his wife. “Now tell me why you are go ing to set Mr, Lawrence.” “ Mr. Little let his eyes fall to the floor, and sat for some moments in si lence. Then looking up he said ; “ The truth is, Betsey, I must have more capital in my business. There will be no getting on without it,— Now Mr. Lawrence can command or says he can command ten thousand pounds. I think he would like to join me. He has said as much two or three times.” “ And are you going to see him on that business ? ” “I was.” “Don’t do it,” said Mrs- Little, em phatically. “ Why not ? ” asked Aaron. “ Because he isn’t the man for you— not if lie had £20,000. “ Because is no reason,” replied Aaron Little: “ l ife extravagance of his wife is enough,” was answered firmly. “ What do you know about her? ” “Only what I have seen. I have called on her two or three times, and ha»e noticed the style in which her ho”'e was furnished. It is arrayed in ice attire compared with ours. And as for dress, it would take the interest of a little fortune to pay her milliner’s and mantua maker’s bills. No, no, Aaron, Mr. Lawrence is not the man depend upon it. He’d use up the £IO,OOO in less than two years.” “Well Betsey that's pretty plain talk, said Mr. Little, taking a long breath. “ I’m rather afraid after what you’ve said, that Mr. Lawrence is not my man. But what ami to do? ” and hia voice fell in a troubled tone. “ I must have more capital or, —■” ‘‘‘Or what ? His wife looked at him steadilv, and without any sign of weak anxiety. “ Or I may become bankrupt.” “I am sorry to hear you say that Aaron.” and Mrs. Little’s voice trem bled perceptibly. “But lam glad you told me The new parlor c:u pet of course I shall not order.” “ Or, as to that, the amount it will cost can make no great difference,” said Mr. Little. “The parlor does look shabby, and I know you have set your heart on anew carpet.” “Indeed, and it will make a differ ence then,” replied the little woman in her decided way. “The last feath er breaks the camel’s back. Aaran Lit. tie shall never fail because of his wife’s extravagance. I wouldn’t have a ear pet now if it were offered to me at half price.” “You are a brave, true woman, Bet sy,” said Aaron, kissing his wife in the fresh glow of a new r bora feeling of ad miration. “I hope I shall ever be a true, brave wife,” returned Mrs-Little,“ willing al ways to help my husband, either in saving or in earning, as the case may be. But let us talk more about vour affairs, let me sec the trouble nearer. Must you have ten thousand pounds right away?” “Oh, no no, it is not so bad as that, I was only looking ahead, and seeking to provide the means for approach ing payments. I don't want a part ner as far as the business itself is con i cefned; I don t like partnerships* they are always accompanied with annoy ances or danger. It was the money I was after not the man,” “ The money would come dearly at the price of the man, if you took Mr. Lawrence for a partner, at least that is my opinion. But lam glad to hear you say, Aaron, that you are in no im mediate danger. May imt the storm be weathered by reefing sail, as the sailors say.” « By reducing expenses?” “Yes.” “ Don’t gay no too quickly,” replied his wife. “Let us go over the whole matter at home and at the store. Suppose one or two thousand were saved in a year, what difference would that make?" “Oh, if that were possible, which is not, it makes a vast difference in tlie long run, but it would hardly meet the dfiicultiCs approaching.” “Suppose you had fire hundred ! pounds within the next two months, beyond what vour business would give i you?” “That sum would mate all square ! for the next two months. But where I is the five hundred pounds to come from Betsy?” “Desperate diseases require desper ale remedies,” replied the brave little woman in a resolute way. “I’m not afraid of the red fiao-! O “Let us sell off our furniture at auc tion, put the money into your busi ness; it won’t bring less than five him derd pounds, and it may biii g more. The piano alone is worth nearly a hun dred, and we can board a year or two, and when you get all right again re turn to houskeeping.!” “We won’t try that yet, Betsy,” said Mr. Little, “But something must be done, the disease is threatning, and my first pre scription will arrest its violence I have something more to propose. It comes into my mind this instant; after breaking tip we will go to mother’s. You know she never wanted us to leave there. It wouldn’t costs u> ov er half what it does now* taking rent into account, We will pay sister An nie something to take care of little Ed die and Lizzie through the day, and I will go into your warehouse as chief ! clerk,” “Betsey you are crazy.” “Not a bit of it Aaron, but a sensi ble woman, as you will find before you are a year older, if you will let me have my way. I don’t like that Hob son, and never did, as you know, I don’t beleive lie’; a fair man. Let me take his place, and you will make a clear three hundred pounds a year, and may be as much more.” “I can’t think of it, Betsy; let us wait awhile.” “You nittst think of it, and I won’t wait awhile,” replied the resolute wife. “What is right to be done is best done quickly. Is there no safety to my plan?” “Yes I think there is but—” “Then let ns adopt it at once, and thi-ow all buts overboard, or,” and she looked at him a little mischiveously, “perhaps you would rather have some talk with Mr. Lawrence first?” : Hang Mr Lawrence!” ejaculated Mr, Little. ' Very there being no help in Mr. Lawrence, we will go to work Go help ourselves. Self-help I have al ways heard was the best help, and most to be depended on. We may know ourselves, and trust ourselves, and that is a great deal more than we can say ot other people. When shall we have tbs s*le?” ’ Not so fast, Betsey, not so fast. I haven’t agreed to the sale yet. That w#uld be sure to make a certain loss. ! Furniture sold at auction never realizes move than half its cost.” “It would certainly gam, Aaron, if it saved you from bankruptcy, with which, as I understand it. you are threatened.” “I think; said Aaron, we may get on without that. I like the idea of your coming into my warehouse and taking Hobson’s place. All the mon ey from the retail sales passes through his hands, aud he has it in his power, if not Ironist, to rob me seriously, and I’ve not felt altogether easy in regard to him of late. Why I can hardly tell; I have seen nothing wrong, but if you take his place, three hundred pounds wifi be saved certainly.” “But if I have my house to kefep,’ Mrs. Little answered to this, “how can I help you at your warehouse? The first thing in order is to get the house off my hands.” “Don’t you think that Annie could be induced to come and live with us a few months until we try the new ex periment?” “But the money, Aaron; the money this furniture would bring. That’s what lam looking after. You want money now.” “Very true” “Then let Us hang out the red flag. Halfway measures may only ruin ev erything. I know that mother will not let Annie leave home, so it no 1 use to think of it. The red dag, Aa ron—the red flag! jbepend upon it, that s the first thing to be done. Five or six hundred pounds in hand will make you feel like another person— give you courage confidence’ and en ergy.” “You may be right, Betsey but I can t bear the thought of running out the red flag of which vou talk so light ly.” “Shall I say coward? Are you a fraid to do what common prudent e tells i von is right?” * © “I was afraid, but am no longer fainthearted. With such a brave lit j tie wife as you to stand by my side, I ! need not fear the world.” In a week from that day the ret? flag was hung out. When the Juc: | tioneer made up his accounts, he had ion hand a little over eight hundred pounds, for which a check was filled I <>ut to the order of Aaron Little. It came into his hands just at the right moment, and made him feel, to use his own words, “as easy as an old shoe.” One week later, Mrs*. Betsey Little took tlie place of Mr. Hobson, as chief man ager and cash-receiver in her husbands warehouse. There were some few signs of rebellion among the clerks and shop-girls at the begitiing, but Mrs. Betsey had a clear steady eye, a self-reliant air, that caused her pres-1 ence to be felt, and soon made every ! thing subservient to her will. It was j a remarkable fact that at the close of j the first week of her administration of affairs, the cash receipts were a little over £3O in excess of any week with I in the previous three months. “Have we done more business than ' usual this week?” she asked one clerk ! and another; and the uniform answer was, “No,” “Then,” said the lady to herself, “there s been foul play here. No won dear my husband was in trouble.” At the end of the next week the sales came up to the same average, and at the end of the third week were for ty pounds better than when Airs. Lit tle took the manage of the retail de partment. Whether there had been “foul play” or not, Aaron Little could never Lilly determine; but he was in no doubt as to one thing, and that was the easy condition of the montw market after the lapse of a half year. Tor four or five months previous to j Mrs Little’s administration of affairs, he was on the street for nearly half of his time, duringjmsiness hours, en gaged in the work of money-raising; now his regular receipts had got in ad vance of his payments, so that 1113 bal ance on the morning of each day was ; usually in excess of the notes to be lif- i ted. Os course he could give more ! attention to business, and of course j businessincreased’and grew more prof- I itable under the improve:! system. By the end t*f the year, to use his own words, he was “all right.” Not so I with a neighbor of his, who, to get more capital, had taken, Mr. Lawrence as a partner. Instead of bringing in j ten thousand pounds that “capitalist’ i was only able to put down three thou sand, and before me end of the year had drawn out six or seven thonsand, and given no*es of the firm for as much more in paj ment of old obli i gations. A failure of the house fol lowed as an inevitable result. When the fact of the failure became knowu to Mr. Little, he remarked with a shrug: ! “Tm sorry for B—; but he should ; have told his wife.' “Os what? asked the person to whom he addressed tlie remaik. “Os his want of more capital, and his intention to make a partner of Lawrence. ” “What good would that have done?” “It might have saved him from ruin, ! as it did me.” “Ycu are very mysterious, Little.” “Am I? Well in plain words, a year ago I was hard up for money in ' my business, and thought of taking in Lawrence. I told my wife about it. She said, ‘Don’tdo it.’ And I didn’t; for her ‘Don’t do it’ was followed by suggestions to his extravagance that opened my eyes a little. I told her at the same time, of my embaraasments and she set her bright little head to work and showed me the way out of them. Before this I always had a poor opinion of woman's wits in mat ; ters of business: but now I say to eve j ry man in trouble—‘Tell your wife!’ The Woman you Love. “Let the woman you look upon be wise or vain, beautiful or homely, rich or poor, she lias but one thing to give !or refuse—her heart. Her beauty, her wit, her accomplishments, she may sell | to you—but her love is the treasure i without monev and without price. ! She only asks in return that when you j look upon her, yoilr eyes shall speak a mute devotion; that when you address • her, your voice shall be gentle, loving and kind.—That you Shall not despise her because she cannot understand, all at once, your thoughts and ambitious plans, for when misfortune and evil have defeated yottr greatest pursuits—-her love remains to console you. Yon look upon the trees for strength ami grandeur; do not despise , the flowers because their fragrance is , afi they have to give.—Remember, love is all a woman can give—but it is the only earthly thing which God per mits us to carry beyond the grave.” THE WIFE. Only let a woman be sure she is ' precious to her husband—not useful not valuable, not convenient simply, | but lovely and beloved; let her be the | recipient of his polite and hearty at tention; let her feel that she has the sincere respect of her husband and ; that her care and love are noticed, ap | predated and returned; let her opin ions be asked, her approval sought and her judgment respected in matters of which she is cognizant; in short, let her only be loved, honored and cher ished in the true sjiirit ot the marriage vow, and she will be to her husband, j children and society a well spring of 1 pleasure. She will bear pain and toil j and anxiety, for her husband’s love to her is a tower and fortress. Shielded and sheltered therein, adversity will ! have lost its sting. She may suffer, [ but sympathy will dull the edge of sor i row A house with love in it, and by j love I mean love expressed iti words and looks and deeds ( for I have not one spark of faith in love that never crops out) —is to a house without love |as a person to a machine; one is life the other mechanism. The unloved woman may have bread just as light, a house just as tidy, a dress just as neat as the other, but the latter has a spring of beauty about her, a joyous ness, an aggressive, penetrating and pervading brightness to which the former is a stranger. The deep hap piness in her heart shines out in her face. She gleams over it. She is full j of devices and plots, and sweet surpri ses for her husband and family. She is never done with the romance and poetry of life. She herself is a lyric poem, setting herself to all pure and gracious melodies. Humble house hold ways and duties have for her a golden significance. The prize makes her calling high, and the end sanctifies the means. “Love is heaven, and heaven is love/’ Night and Day.— What a beauti ful thougit is embodied in these words of Holy Writ, “and the evening and the morning were the first day, and the evening and the morning thd §<?-- cond day ” Morning ha.s and ever* will follow the evening; and though 04f whole life may seem like one CdfltifHF ed night, it shall be succeeded by th@ brightness of eternal day. In Custom ary method of computing time we reck on that day commences at twelve o’clock, and that we have both its ex tremes shrouded in darkness. A sim ilar idea have we of life, of morning's childhood and eymingV old age. But it need not be thus with the Christ ian’s life, t4 r the evening time may be brightened with the radiance of our heavenly Father's countenance; so that which seems to us like a beautiful sun set scene, is really but a single ray from which ushers in the glorious resur rection morning. We read of those in ancient times who died “oldand full of days,” yet how many have died be i fig old and full of nights. Evil thoughts and deeds, unthankfulness and com plaint, are such as makeup ottrnights- Our days are made up of pure deeds, sorrows patiently borne, of loving sym pathy to the poor, bereaved one, little acts and looks of kindness, which bring back the glad sunshine to some weary soul s, and as bal in to lh e wour d ed spirit. They are the bright, pre cious gems, whose radieace sparkles throughout all time, and by whose clear light we can behold the high way cast up for the ransomed of the Lord" 1 A gentleman has lately can vassed tour hundred and forty-eight families of ministers, and finds that they contain two thousand one hun dred and one children over fifteen years of age. Os these fourteen hundred and fourteen are hopefully pious, nine ty-three of them in the ministry, or preparing for it, and only thirty-four dissipated. He thinks an equal record cannot be produced from any other profession. Factories. We gave yesterday a short arlicla on the subject ot the importance to the people of the South of utilizing 11 ' the fullest extent the rich products of the soil. By facts and figures taken from an annual exhibition of the An gusta (Gn.) Manufacturing Company, we showed how by suffering our co< ton to be manufactured abroad, we were daily losing one’ of the richest profits of its pioducts. We showed that the gross profits arising from the I manufacture of cotton by the Angus ta mill, amounted to an average of 0$ cents per pound. Itence it follows that by neglecting to manufacture our own cotton we, in effect, not only give away cent on every pound of cotton raised in the South, but actual ly pay out of our gross receipts for cot ton sold, a bonus of at least cents per pound to do that for us which we could absolutely make a largo profit by doing for ourselves'? The cotton crop of 1871 amounted in round numbers to, say 4,000,000 bales. At an average 0t440 pounds per t bale—the average weight of the bales " manufactured last year by the Augus ta (Ga.) mills —this would give 1,760 000, 000 pounds as the weight of cot ton raised in the South last year. At cents per pound the saving to the South from manufacturing her own cotton would be $111,456,GG6! or a bout one-half of the net value of the whole crop! We have used the gross profits of the Augusta mills because the expen ses, which come out of the gross prof its, are paid out to operatives in the 1 South, and amount to a part of the Southern income proper from the man ufacture of cotton. Os course we have no idea that the South will be able to manufacture all of her cotton for many long years to come. But she can manufacture a large proportion ot it, and her best in terests absolutely require that she should do it. Because, in addition to the profit arising from its manufacture* the amount .of cotton that Southern mills would withdraw from the gen eral market, would have a inaiiest tendency to enhance the value of the whole cotton crop to the producer and bring into the South more money from abroad. We have, this morning, some addi tional facts gleaned from the annual statement of the Graniteville(S. C.) Manufacturing Company to which wd invite the particular attentiori of our readers.
