As ft wife nml mother, woman can

partner and to herself a competence
in old age, no matter how small their
begianing or bow adverse a fate may

eau restore her husband's spirits, sha

her tender cure she cnu often rostoro

if temptation in an evil hour has led

precepts and her sex’s insight into
character, slio can mould her children
however adverse their dispoHitioiis,
into uoblo iuou and women. Aud, by
loading in nil things a true and beau-
tiful life she can refine, elevato and
spiritualize all who come within her
reach; so that with others of her sex

She can do much, alas! perhaps
moro to degrado man if she chooses

that a woman has tho power to do?
As a wife she can ruin herself by ex
travagance, folly or want of affection.
Sho can make a demon or an outcast
of a mau who might otherwise becomo
a good member of society. Sho can
bring bickering, strife and discord in
to what might bo or lias been a happy

Lunlarlll. eourlrr Journal.
A gentleman from Allen county,
who chanced to be in tho city yeater-
dny, tells au interesting story of a ro
mantic runaway match which is now
being extensively canvassed in thnt
pnrt of the State. Scottsville, a pret
ty village sitnntod in the conuty uien
tionod, about fiftocn* miles from the
Teiinossoo lino, is the homo of lha
most aristocratic people in Kentucky.
It is a place noted for pretty girls and
gallant young men, and among all
these tlio sweetest bolle was Miss 01-
lio Brown, and tho hnndsomest bean
Ur. Joseph Carpenter. They lovod
ouch other unto dosporation. Thoirs
was the sort of lovo that always leads
to marriage, aud months ago they de
termined to link their destinies. In
this case, ns in many others, the only
obstacle was the parental objection.—
Miss Brown's mother positively de
clared that she was not old enough to
get married, being only fourteen, and
her sweetheart's ontrcatics were in
vain. The young people made one or
two incSuctaal attempts at clopomont,
but they wero never once dissuaded
from their determination to carry ont
the schomo in the sweot by-nud-by.—
On last Thursday young Mr. Carpou-
tor drovo in a buggy to tho residence
of his sweetheart, aud ouco moro bo-
Bought her mother to consent to an
early wedding. Mrs. Brown was in
exorable, Miss Brown was tearful, and
Air. Carpenter excited. At lost, when
every prayer had been denied, the
young mau boldly put the question
to bis swcotbcart:
"Will yon go with mo, or mind
yonr mother and romain at home?"
The girl lookod up through her
lours first at her lover nml then at
“I will go with you,” sho said at
"Thun come," nnd with these words
young Carpenter caught his lady lov
iu liis arms, and hurrying out of the
house, jiimpod into the buggy thnt
wns standing in front of the door.—
The horse received a smart blow with
the whip, aud jumped uwny in a dead
run. As soon ns Mrs. Brown realized
tho situation ahe screamed for nssis
tanco at the top of bur voice. In n
fow moments tlio little town was wild
with excitement, but tho volume of
sympathy soeiuod to ho with tiie
young |>eop)o, who had just whirled
through tho streets nt u torrilic rate
uf speed, taking tho rond to Oallntin,
Teiin. Tho mother wildly besought
somebody to go iu pursuit of the fu
gitives, and if |Kissibls to stop the
mariinge. At lungth Mr. Mnnioti,
a young lawyer, ntid Judge of the I’m
liee Court, couscutcd. In n tew mo
ments lie ivns mounted upon a horse
of s|Hiud mid bottom, nud rattling nut
of town iu the direction taken by the
buggy, nt n pare thnt would have rup
tured the “gentloinnn's cup" at any
fuir iu the State. From the very
start it wns n rare of whip and spur.
Tim fugitives were evidently tnnkiug
for 'Squire Fite’s "flier, which is just
across the Tennessee line, nnd Judge
Mmiioti was hot npon (heir trail. It
was a clmso long to lie remembered
by the ]ample who witnessed it. In
front a horse (locked with foam, go
ing at full K|iecd, and drawing n light
buggy, iu wliicb sat a gallant yonth
witli resolution in bis face and a beau
tiful girl nestling trustingly by bis
side. A mile nr two in the rear a sol
itary horseman, applying whip and
spur, thundered alung the level turn
pike. The bnggy hml the best of tho
race, an 1 palled up in front of 'Hquiro
Fike’s office fifteen minutes in the
lead uf lha man on horseback. Tho
clover 'Squire promptly adjusted bis
spccUcleH mill read tho marriage li
cense. It was nil right, aud tho cere
mony would be |icrfortnod, the 'Squire
said, nud lie was on the point of pro
nouncing tlio words so fevorishly
awaited by tlio young people when
Judge Mnniou, riding like a profes
sional jockey, bore down upon the
party aud signalled the officer of the
law to atop. *'l object to this wed
ding," ho said, flinging himself from
his panting horse.
“ Upon what grounds ?" asked the
" It is the wish of the lady’s moth
er thnt she shall not marry. I bavo
come at her bidding."
" You’ll have to show something in
writiug," said thv 'Squire bluntly,
Judge Mnniou promptly took his
scat nt a table and ilnshod off au affi
davit, reciting the facts. 'Squiro Fiko
rood it, and much Io the discomfltiiro
of the runaways, rofaied to proceed
furtbor with the ceremony. Thoyonng
pcoplo plondod, but nil lb no purpose.
At longth Mr. CarpenUr mid in very
simplo language: “ We’ll go farther.
Got in tho buggy, my deer. Judge
Man ion, you may prepart for another
race. We are off for Gallatin.
The young man meant exactly what
be said, and iu a fow minutes tho race
was renewed. Tho dittanos to Galla
tin was oigbteen miles, but the bnggy
horse was staunch and as truo as the
love of the young couplo be was draw
ing. Ho leaped nimbly away from
tho string, nnd onoo more got the best
of tho start Jndgo Manion, nothing
dnuutcd, again took tbo taddlo and
pat tho apart to his faithful courser.
For fonr miles the race was nook and
nock, neither ontry for the gtnnd prizo
Hugging; hut at the finish of that dis
tance, tho horse under saddle cast a
shoo and stumbled to tho gronnd
completely oxhaustod. Tho bnggy
then glided unaccompanied to Galla
tin. Jndgo Mauion picked himself
up, determined to carry ont bis mis
sion, nnd walked along tbo road for
tbreo miles, when lie proearod anoth

strrted ont once moro on a ran. In
the mcautime, however, onr yonng
people had arrived at Gallatin. A
preacher wns secured, and the wod-
ding was performed at tho principal
hotel in the presence of a dozen spe
cially invited guests. Judgo Manion
galloped into town on his* worn-out
hack just in timo to congratulate Mr.

with tho best grace )>oasibli'. The

that unlit tomb commonly denominat
ed a parlor. If a house has hat tbreo
rooms iu it, uno is sot aside for a par

been made ns to tho necessity for the
parlor, hut no one has ever solved the

it is the drawing room on a small

can lie culled a return. The real
cause of. the parlor, when the matter
is thornghly sifted, will he fontid to

Not long ago tho particulars wero

fnriner named Henry Goodplower,
who, although honest, is not addicted
to the careful observation of tho bib
lical injunction to keep holy tho Sab

man. On Saturday Mr. aud Mrs.
Goodplower attended the circus, nnd
tbo lady remarked with feclingsof ad

placed his foot on tho bnek of his

down un the floor to carry out a plan
which sho had been turning over in
her mind. She is of n very emula

of the india rubber man tho moro she
became fixed in the belief that sho
could discount sumo of his efforts.—
The first feat attempted was putting
