—that always results
than she does about makin’ bread.
Fine housekeeper she'll make for
your Harvey! Sister Layne, I’m
sorry for ye!”
The speaker—a tall, gaunt old
lady, in a scant gown of blue
cheek, and a huge white sun-bon
net—sunk into the big willow
chair npon Farmer Layne’s vine-
covered porch, and began to fan
herself with a big turkey wing.
Mrs. Layne, a small, -slight old
lady, in a brown Holland dress and
white apron, a silvery-haireS,
plaeid-faced, motherly body,
glanced up from the dish-towel
that she was busily hemming, and
“Well, now, Abigail, I’m not
afraid of Myra,” she observed,
quietly. “The girl is a little learn
ed, perhaps; but, then, I judge
from her letters that she is very
modest- over her acquirements.
And Harvey thinks there isn’t an
other such a woman on the face of
. The visitor sighed lugubrious
“I should think that would be a
great trial to you!” observed this
Job’s comforter. “Yon was alius
used to havin’ Harvey look up to
you as the fust and last among
women! There’ll be a change,
sister Layne; there’ll be a change.”
Mrs. Layne laughed aloud—a
charming little laugh which it did
one good to hear
“Of course, I expect that, Abi
gail!”—spoken with sweet serious
ness—“I should be very sorry if
Harvejr were to care more for his
mother than for his wife. But a
mother’s love need not interfere
with that other love. And, any
way, he aud Myra are married; he
will bring her home to-morrow
to the old farm, and it will not be
my fault is she is not satisfied
here, for I intend to do all in my
power to make her contented and
“Humph! Wal, I’m sure I hope
you’ll never regret it, that’s all!”
says Miss Abigail Harris, as she
arises to take her departure. Her
call has been fashionably short,
but then she accomplished the
purpose for which she came, and
that was something.
The following day brought
Harvey Layne, only child of the
worthy old couple who owned
Hillsdale Farm. Home to the old
farm-house, and with him a tall,
elegant girl—his bride. Myra was
not pretty; but one glance into
her calm, fair face, with it’s se
rious brown eyes, which yet held a
merry gleam somewhere in their
depths, aud Mrs. Layne held out
“My dear, I hope you will be
happy here. We’re plain people
—father and I—but we will do all
we can to make yon happy for
“And for my owd, I hope,” she
said, softly, as she returned the
old lady’s affectionate greeting—
after which she Vas duly presented
to her father-in-law.
As the days went by the coming
of Harvey’s wife began to work
wonders in the old brown farm
house. She removed the hideous
ornaments from the parlor and sub
stituted dainty creations of her
own—painted placques, brackets
and paintings. A velvet lambre
quin soon covered the eyesore of a
tall, painted mantel; tidies, orna
mented witli gay ribbons, covered
the faded repp furniture. The
green paper* shades disappeared
from the windows, and pretty and
inexpensive drapery of delicate
scrim took their place. The bas
ket of paper flowers vanished like
magic from theround table, and in
its stead a plnslx-bonnd album in a
plush easel. Myra smiled when
she arranged it, for she knew that
this was common-place in the ex
treme: but anything was belter
than the paper flowers. Then
beantifully embroidered stools and
foot-rests began to be scattered
throughout the parlor. And when
the old deacon proved how corn-
feet—he now wore a pair of hand
some slippers which the same tire-
wife; she treated her with cold civ
ility, and steadily refused to be
won. It was a case of the sternest
“She’s a whited sepulcher,” the
old spinster wqnld say, grimly,
‘flair enough outside, but within”—
and an ominous shake of the head
would complete the sentence. But
Myra moved quietly on her way.
She taught needle-work to all the
younger girls around who desired
to learn. She was .a milliner,
dress-maker, embroiderer, all in
one. She trained the budding tal
ents of the village artist,and taught
him to read Rnskin and to strive to
ereate the best. She was an em
bryo physician, too, for her knowl
edge of what to do in certain emer
gencies was found upon more than
one occasion to -have saved
But still Miss Abigail sniffed
contemptuously, and turned cold
ly from her whenever they chanced
to meet. Once, when books were
being discussed, Myra offered to
send her George Elliott’s “Romo-
la,” but was surprised to receive
an insulting “No, Thauky, ma’am,
I don’t never read books writ by
such a critter! A woman that was
talked about! Oh, no! I don’t en
courage no sich!”
And Myra eould not suppress a
smile as she observed that neither
praise nor blame could touch the
divine genius of the author of
“Romola.” Now, after that, Miss
Abigail seemed to dislike her, if
possible, more than ever.
And so time wore on until the
summer came. The scene of my
story is laid in a little country
town a few miles from a certain
southern city, and over the fair
city a dark cloud was slowly gath
ering, which was fated'to bring de
struction to many.
“17611, Miss Abigail’s down at
last!” exclaimed Deacon Layne, as
he came from the village in his
buggy one day. “She’s right sick,
they say, and not a soul with her.
Fust time I ever knowed o’ Abi
gail Harris bein’ ill, eh, wife?”
Mrs. Layne looked much con
“Dear, dear, Enos—yes, I never
knew her to have a sick day in her
life before. Well, we are all grow
ing old, Enos, you know.”
“Yes, to be sure,”—thoughtfully
as though it had struck him for
the first time—“I say, wife, do you
think it’s possible that Miss Abi
gail’s down with the yellow fever?
You know she would go over to
Jackson last week to sell her wool.
Nobody could prevent her going
right to the infected city. She’d
sold her wool there every year
since the war, she wasn’t going to
take it ter any other market—so she
said. I declare, there goes Dr.
Jones! I’ll hail him, and find out
what the matter is.”
“Yellow fever?” quoth the old
doctor, drily. “Yes, to be sura it
is, neighbor, the worst case I’ve
seen since the epidemic of ’78—
just ten years ago. It’s all her
own fault—Miss Abigail’s. You
know what a hard-headed woman
is to deal with.”
“No worse than a hard-headed
man, Dr. Jones!” cried a cheerful
voice, and the next moment the
doctor’s hat was off, and he
bowing to Harvey’s wife.
“What’s that about Miss Abi
gail? Sick? And the yellow fe
ver? Doctor, you must take , me
over there at once. I understand
how to nurse the fever perfectly.”
“Oh, Myra!” sobbed Harvey’s
“Myra!”- exclaimed old Deacon
“Mrs. Layne!” cried the . doctor,
in consternation, “you will only
risk your life for the sake of a
crabbed old woman, who has not
long to live at the most.”
“But she’s just as precious in
God’s sight,” said Harvey Layne’s
wife, softly, “and so—if—Harvey
doesfnot object—I will go with
yon, doctor, and nurse poor old
Miss Abigail Why, if v I manage
“And so you nursed me—you—
Harvey Layne’s wife, that I alias
thought wasn’t good for anything

“Who never really meant any
wrong at all,” interposed Myra; a
pale, wan little Myra now, after
long days and nights of watching
and nursing—that indefatigable
care which alone brings a patient
through the horrors of yellow fe
ver. “Now, say no more about it,
Miss Abigail, and thank God that
the contagion has not spread.

Counsel was defending a man
indicted for arson in causing his
own dwelling to be destroyed to
defraud the insurer. The alleged
accomplice, a young man, had tes
tified to the setting on fire of the
building, at the instigation of his
employer, the defendant. The
witness was corroborated by his
father, who testified that when the
arrest was made the defendant
said to him: “We might have both

upon the accomplice, by showing
his unworthy motive and action,but
he found it difficult to approach
the subject of the testimony of the
father, because there was little in
the evidence upon which an attack
upon his testimony could be based.
Counsel struggled along with the
remainder of the topics upon
which he wished to speak, hesita
ting to approach the subject of the
father’s testimony, until luckily a
story entered his head. He there
upon proceeded in this wise:

barrenness of the evidence upon
which the learned District Attor

A few days ago the report was
set afloat that the Louisville and
Nashville intended to build a road
that would give it an Atlanta con
nection, and which would greatly
injure the state road. The Louis
ville and Nashville may have such
an intention, but it is quite safe to
say that it will not do so as long as
there is a chance for it to get the
state road. The state road has a
business of which it cannot be de
prived by any road that is likely to
be built. It is true that roads could
be built that would greatly injure
it, and that is one of the reasons
that has influenced the Morning
News in advising the sale of it, but
there is no immediate prospect of
the building of any such road, not
withstanding the report to the
It is worth noticing that Mr.
John H. Inman and his party of
capitalists, when they visited At
lanta the other day to attend the
chamber of commerce banquet,
came from Chattanooga over the
Western and Atlantic instead of
the East Tennessee, and it is said
that Mr. Inman’s car was the last
one on the train and that he occu
pied a seat most of the way on the
rear platform. From this it is to
be inferred that he feels a very
great interest in the road, and that
the Richmond Terminal may be a
bidder for it. In a Chattanooga dis
patch he is quoted as saying, ‘We
do not intend the lease to Tie given
away to the Louisville and Nash
ville.” If the Richmond Terminal
and the Louisville and Nashville
should bid for theroad, the chances
are that-tlie state would get more
than §35,000 a month for it.
that has not yet been lifted. They
have not forgotten* yet how the
high price for cotton expanded
credit, encouraged extravagance
and spread mortgages over thous
ands of once prosperous farms
and homes in this section.
Remembering these things of
the past, will they again be delud
ed by the price of ten cents for
cotton into curtailing. their corn
and other food crops?
Or will they now pursue the
more sensible and self supporting
policy sought to to be inculcated
through the principles-of the alli
ance, of growing and producing an
abundance of needed supplies at
home, no matter what may be the
price of cotton.
It matters not if it were known
that cotton would command twen
ty cents for the next ten years, it
would be the safer and surer poli
cy for each and every farmer in the
cotton region to raise on his own
farm an abundance of corn, meat,
wheat and all food supplies.
This the Southern farmers can
do, and at the same time grow
cotton enounh to supply the world
when supplemented with that
grown in other countries.
If this be done, and it can be
done, then, whether cotton be sold
for ten cents, or twenty cents, in a
few years our farmers will become
masters of the situation, and will
be money-lenders instead of mon
ey-borrowers as now.

not give her the remedy her sys

The consumption* of food per

in America and Europe, and yet
the climate of Australia requires
that a man should eat less. The in

Youth is sweet with its fiery en

manhood will be just as much so,

quieter still, will have its own

with life what we ought, and is
suited to each of its'stages; do all,

The Voyage of Life.
Life is beset by evils and
changes on every side. From birth
to manhood and from manhood
until old age eternal vigilance is
the price of health. There is one
remedy that has saved many a
rickety, headaching, blood poison
ed, dyspeptic mortal to a life of
usefulness and robust health. It
is known as Dr. Bull’s Sarsaparil
la and it is a Sarsaparilla that is a
Sarsaparilla. Not a thousand doses
of molasses and water for a dollar,
but a conoantrated essence of the
best virtues of sarsaparilla and
other alterative herbs. Jt heals,
it cures where other sarsaparilla
and other blood remedies have no
more effect than so much stagnant
water. If your system craves an
alterative, if you value life you do
yourself a great injustice if you
fail to try this excellent remedy.
Demand it of your druggist and
take no other.—Sidney Times.
I have looked over the list of in

promises well in diseases to which
it is applicable.—L. Y. Yandell
