Looking at this man as he held tho hand so soon to he his no ono could doubt his love for the fair woman who stood before him. They lind spoken of many when ho said Palmer has told me your gen crotis with regard to money. I cannot consent to this. It is true wo must have waited long be foiolcould ofter you a but will win my way to fortune He lifted his young noble head ns he tossing tho dark curls from such a manly full ol bright resolution that Miriam wondered in her henit how any one could look into his nnd suspect him of mercenary desires. She said nothing in answer to his impetuous only and nestled her hnnd in his. She was not a caressing coy in her sweet maiden but where she gave love and she gave them fully and Ireely. The' days of betrothal sped rapidly. During the day Wilton stood at his fingering over massive ledgers and dreamed of future and Miriam selected her furnished and kept seamstresses nnd milliners busy. She hnd no ob- jection to her step father's wish to have house and furniture settled upon but wni resolute about the residue of her large fortune being left subject to tho control of her future husband. But tbn days of the betrothal were short. A gay a happy and the young people came borne to the 'handsome new married folks. Two years ot happiness followed. Wilton was rapidly -rising in the esteem uf business pur- chased liis-position as junior partner in the firm of Myers A at Miriam's earnest request. although at- tentive to his be was no mere seeking money as the only eud and aim of life. Miriam found him ever a willing es- cort to ball or and the home evenings were given to or such bright intellectual in- tercourse as had its power of mutual attraction before marriage. There were sage people who shook their heads over the wife's ex- travagance but Wilton seemed most happy when she was gratifying some new whim or and she had never known the need ot economy. Money had always been at her com- and there was now no restraint upon her expenditures. For fine dress she cared but though she was and her costumes were always rich and appropriate but she was generous and loved to collect trifles of exquisite art around patronized rising and found no difliculy in exhausting her liberal income each year. It was during the third year of her married life thnt Miriam begnn to find a cloud upon the former bright happi- ness of her life. Wilton was changed. In these three the loving heart of the young wife summed tip all her forebodings. He had been the sunlight hour of her tender and but it became evi- dent to her that some absorbing in- terest wns winning him more and more irom her side. Evening after evening he left her on one pretext or oftentimes being away until long after midnight. His sleep became restless and broken and some absorbing caro kept his face eyes and manners grave. There was no unkindness to complain of. Miriam met ever a ten- a loving word. Shemisse'l the pleasant home and a dull fear crept into her heart. Wilton was becoming miserly. He denied her but would oflimes sigh heavily if she challenged his admiration of some new dress or nnd it was evident be was curtailing his personal expenses to tho merest necessities. Too proud to Miriam suffered praying thnt she might not lenrn to despise her husband as a mere money machine. At first she endeavored to gain his but he kindly evaded her nnd she made no further eflort. But her home grew missing the companionship that had made the hours there fly so swiftly. She had never felt household trusting everything to an experienced housekeeper. She had no children to awaken a mother's love and so she plunged into fashionable follies and tried to forget her loneliness. Never had her toilets been chosen with more faultless never had icr beauty been more marked than it now and she sought for ex- citement as she had never done in the first happy yenrs of her married life. And while Mrs. Seymour thus sought happiness abroad that could not bo found at her husband's grew paler and and he iocame more absorbed in business ares. One year more and he hearts that had been firmly bound together seemed drifting opart. Miriam was sitting sadly in her drawing one waiting Tor the carriage thnt was to convey her to a large social gathering at n fashionable friend's. She was dressed costly over and every detail of her costume was faultless as to and the choicest quantity. Her face was and her eyes sad. She looked up as the door lioping to see though it was long since he had spent an evening in her society. Instead of his grace- full the portly form of her step- father entered the room. Miriam sprang forward with a glad smile. am so glnd to see she ex- warmly. you were going to get rid of my and myself. I slinll be happier here with you will not treat me as yonr father to-night.

I was greatly astonished at the number of events that passed through my mind while under tho water. Nothing that occurred child- hood wtis but everything since I was about 10 years old ap- peared before me as if photographed. The sensation I experienced while the water was going down my tliroat was not unpleasant. It seemed as if I was going on a and was surrounded by all kinds of beautiful things. While on the rock I felt very bad and desired to be left alone. The transition from the beatific state in the water to dry land seemed to have a bad and made me in- different as to what was going on around me.

It is a cruel imposition to fill a man's oars with household af- tor a day of care and labor. Few women veally'consider their ob- ligation to be cheerful and companion- able in the evening. Men often fail in and their wives blame them for not being sharper at the and more ca- pable of laying np a fortune. How many of these wives ever lost an op- portunity to relate an annoying bit of or to dust her own trouble with upon her husband's head the minute his hat is hung on a nail in the house and his boots pulled so that hu could have no excuse to get out ot the hear- ing of such bother. A man's head does not usually measure more than twenty-two or three inches and it is not reasonable to expect him to carry more than-five hundred cares in and keep them well and in order. If you load him down with worthless yon must ex- pect important matters to be lost and forgotten. _____ A practical philosopher obscrvei that success in life is very apt to make us forget the time when we weren't much.
