During the. prevalence of the epid"in-\c. in Boston occurred tin» ineiiicnis I ¡ni about, lo relate, all of which are well known lo persons now living, the the only change bein^; in the names of I he principal actors, the cireumstanees heinii ])ersonally known to me. »lames Ainniiinuan was junior partner in a well-known Bos Ion dry-^oods lirm. lie was 28, with a wife 1ml no children. Kaeli of his partners had fatniliiis <»!' '.hree children, ami when, in the first few weeks of llns epidemic, all who possessed t he means lied l'rom the [>la<rne-strieken city, he felt, il was foul his duty lo ur^e his partners to leave wilh their families, while, he remained w week or two to a.Itend to Ihe; closing up of bUMUC-vS. | lie tried to induce his wifo lo accompany lliein, or <je to her home away iunonij; the New Hampshire, hills, buL the persistently refused to go. "When you can go, flames, I am ready,1' was her linn answer to all his persuasions, "but not- until then." So Ihey remained a week or more after U;eir friends had left. The death-rate increased rapidly, and on the tenth day the cholera lla<i waved its dread signal from the house opposite James Arnmerman's. "Pack everything necessary for our journey,'' he said to his wife the morn-i/i^after the JJa^r appeared. "I will •.•lose up business to-day, and to-morrow morning we will take the iirsl train lor New Hampshire." All of Airs. Ammerman's servants incept her chamber iz'irl. had tied at the lirst approach of the. dread <li>ease, hut faithful KaJy Sullivan was bound le) her mistress by <tron^ ties of allot*-lion ami would only leave when, the family ditl. "An' sure its meself.'' she said, "as will stay wilh ye until ye're out o' the city sure.'' Bv ni^lit everything; was packed, the upholstered furnitute covered and all iu readiness for the journey in tho carl}' mornino-. I\lr. Atumerinaii rclurned at <» o'clock ^s usual, but the <juiek eye. of his wife, detected a change in his appearanet?. | "I have not been feel in u' well all da v.'1 he ail mi tied, in answer to her uixious »jiiestionin<>\ '•Someway I feel weak and >!lipid an<l a little chilly. It's nothing" serious." he added reassuringly. ••I'll lie down for awhile, and I presume 1 shall soon feel butter." Mrs. Animermau hastened him to bed, made hoi applications and administered warm stimulants, but the (dullness increased and soon sharp, a^oiiiz-in-r cramps seized him. Katie was hastily dispatched for tho family physician, who was soon by the sick man's bedside. He made his examination with a ii'rave face, but one that betrayed no ¿•motion of hope or fears to the anxious wife. "Is it cholera;"' she asked al last, ; pronouncing the dread word with a • shudder and wait ing in an a.^ony of suspense for the doctor's reply. "It mav be only cholerine,'' was the fii.-inh'd answer, as Hr. Tyler dealt out his medicine, "(live him this every half hour and I will call a^ain in an hour or two.'1 "When he made his next vi.jit at ID ¿/clock there remained no longer a iloubt of the nature of the disease. The wife needed only the evidence of her own senses lo convince her thai the. dreaded foe had entered her-housc-hold. All through tho Ion«;- hours of that ad ui<rht she watched beside her hus-oand, li^hliiiii the, advance of tho destroyer with every means at her command; Katie, in her faithful devotion, >tandin»; ready to .second her everv 1 wi-li. But notwithstanding their united efforts ihe work of death Went on slowly. As Ihe morning he^an to dawn his nands j»tow icy cold, ihe pulse became weak, thready and hardly' perceptible ; at times, his breath short, confined and incomplete, the respirations increased : to over thirty a minute. Occasionally, when she could raiso him for an instant from his semi-conscious condition, he answered her inquiries in a voice so weak and hoarse that, she hardly recognized it. ' The icy chill .spread gradually oyer lite face,body and limbs,and when Dr. Tyler came al V o'clock lie found h s patient lyitiji wilh collapsed features, hollow cheeks, deeply sunken and closed eyes, iX'ivinj; no evidence of consciousness 1 save a uroan irom time to time as tho J sharp spasms seized him. The doctor'« dissolution and he gently broke tha dread intelligence to tho anxious wife. "But J will never ^¡ve him up until death 1a really here," she said resolutely, 1 hough her heart grew heavy with the terrible fear thai all her cllerls would be useless. With renewed energy she chatVed the ice-cold limbs, applied anew hot water hollies fo sides and feel, but all in vain; the limbs grew colder, the features, tlio whole body, more collapsed and the eyes more, sunken; Ihe weak pulse, crept, «lowly up (he arm to Ihe vitals; the heart heals grew fainter and fainter, the breath shorter and more labored, until at eleven o'clock it stopped, and the devoted wife was alono with her dead. As the >ad truth was forced upon her she >ank upon her knees by the. bedside, her lead resting upon tho cold, lifeless hand of her husband which was clasped between her own. l-'or a few minutes she lost sight of everything save the sense of utter desolation which Idled her heart. At last through the open window wa^ borne to her ears the rumbling of a carl down the deserted street, anil the call of the dcad-bearoi's: ••Bring out your dead!1' The sound roused all her dormant energies, -and a wild hope sprang up in her le-art I hat life might not be ipiite extinct in her hu-band. Springing lo her feet -he rang ihe bell for Katie, who responded to her summons. "Do not let them in," she cried, excitedly. "Tell them he is not dead. I know he is still alive, and they shall not lake him. I can revive him if they will only give me ttin':." Katie looked from the cold, rigid body of the husband lo the while, agonized face of Ihe wife, and ten red that grief had -driven her mistress insane, but she obeyed the request and Ihe death cart passed on its rounds. Mrs. Animermau had by this limn become thoroughly possessed of the idea that life still lingered in the apparently dead body of her husband, and Ihe thought of having him taken away for burial was too terrible lo contemplate. If she could only gain time she felt sure she could revive him. 1 hough why she should so strongly hold to such a belief she could not have explained: foul hope she did, and proceeded to renew all her etVort.s which had previously proved in vain. Wilh the energy of despair she worked on, anil again the dead bearers entered tin* room. "We must lake the body now, Madam,'' the man said who appeared to be in aulhorily. "We (-an only hope to stav the epidemic by the prompt, removal of the dead and a thorough disinlection of the houses," "But he is not dead,*' sir, she persisted, "See!" holding a hand mirror oyer his lips, "there is a little moisture." The man looked closely ami shook his head. •'Your hopes deceive you," he said, kindly: "he is surely dead and we must take his body." With a wild cry of agony she fell on her knees, beseeching them with tears to give her just one half hour more. The men gently put her aside, trying to rea.Min with her on the necessity of their own course, but she only pleaded thi! more earnestly. At last, titiding reasoning in vain, they attempted to J.'jy hands upon the body, bin thrusting them aside she threw herself down beside her husband, and clasping him iu Iter arms declared with an agonizing vehemence thai awed ihe men: "If you take him you shall bury me with him. I will not let him go." As the men stepped hack she renewed her pleadings. "(live mi' only one half hour. If there are no signs of life then I Will ask no more," lieiuclantly the men yielded, and left her alone once more to her hopeless task. This time -he saturated Ihuineis wilh hot mu-tard water, and enveloped both body and limb-; then commencing witli the purple nails .-he rubbed each tinti'er vigorously downward lo start the coiim a'cd blood. Kvcry few minutes she put a drop of brandy in his mouth, and raising his head applied strong hartshorn to his nostrils. Kivc ten —liilern ~twenty minutes passed. Only ten m nutes more of that precious half hour which meant life ur death to her. She redoubled her etVorts. Another live minutes passed still no change, the face seemed even more death-like, the icv limbs more rigid. She raised his head upon her arm and admim-,ler-vd more brandy, then applied the bottle of hart;-horn to hi- nostril.--. She glanc-d anxiously at the clock—only two minutes more, and far down the street eanie the rumble of the death-earl, and like a death knell rang out the solemn ward hci husband. "I have eonouered death!" and fell unconsious across the bed." The reaction in the sick mar.V. ca^o was complete; a speedy convalescence followed and a week later, with his devoted wife, lift was safe among the New Hampshire hills- saved by a love stronger than death.-—Jennit J'orUr Arnohl. EXPLORING ALASKA. your with pci- Autumn Leaves and Ferns. Well, dear lady friends, shall you press any autumn leave«!J You doubtless know of many ways wilh which to beautify your homes with them, but perhaps 1 can tell you of one thai you have not thought of. Now. fair readers, you who are surrounded by indulgent husbands and fathers, nnd have everything to make' your homes cosy and delightful, who can gratify your love of the b< your heart's content, who have, pictures, and your bay window-their wealth of graceful vines am led plants - }>l-:</.u< don't stay to our confidential talk with your less-favored sisters. And you. whose very souls hunger for the beautiful, are your homes humble, your rooms -mail, and your ciiing; low? Do on look at your stinted windows with their stilV roiled shades, and wish they were large ami draped with something airy and irraee-l'ul;' Let me help you plan a little. By some honest, strategy (if need be) secure a full set of nm.-lin, or even cheap lace cur tains —very beaut if ul patterns can bo bought for a few dollars,--any light white drapery around a window is so delightfully graceful, and the beauty of trees against the sky is heightened by being seen even through cheap lace. Then measure your window frames-~if the windows are very small, allow lwo or t hree inches more —and have some pieces ol board made like a shelf, with a back piece underneath to nail it: up by. This shelf should be from live to six inches deep in the centre, and gradualJv rounded oil' to the ends, as though it were clipped otV from the edge of a circle. Nail it to the lop of your casement, gather your curtains —two breadths. so they will part in the middle, ami be very full and lack Iheip around the edge of vour she)!'or ivbaicver you eall it. Have ready sonie still'pasted .strips made of paper and old cloth, two or three inches wide, and the length of the edge, of your shelf or cornice. Make a mark for the center, and have ready a >tout ■ needle and thread, and s-une paste to : winch some glue ha- 1jj.-i.mi added. ' Now. btvi'iu at the ends and work tip to > the. centre with your ferns, autunin leaves, etc. if you have pressed whole sprays, il will b.' sfdl more beautiful. These will have to be'tacUed on with needle ami thread, while the single leaves can foe put. on with paste—one little patch near the. .stem is sutlicieiit. Do not crowd them down in a stiff, straight line, but let them be arranged as daintily and as naturally as you would a boquet of llowers. Begin at the ends, and the tips will keep covering the stems »'hero they are fastened. Then put on your beautiful wreath for a heading to your curtains, -muggling the tack under the leaves at the ends. After tin; centre one is driven, take a Lieut.

They were detained there by ice until duly 1^, but reached tho point on the 16th. when they found white men stationed there for trading and whaling. They were ninety-six days in crossing.

What, was my surprise and joy to see a luminous object rise above the eastern horrizon and come almost directly toward me with terrible swiftness. It was a magnificent specimen, and so near the earth's surface that 1 knew it iiiu-"t soon fall. Here was my opportunity to study the habits and peculiarities of the frisky meteor.

"You mean yon will leave the newspaper bus uess:1" I asked. "Yes," he replied; "the truth is, newspapers pay more for legs than they do for brains.'' "Do you mean thai yuii have more brains than K'g;si'1' I asked, with atlect-ed surprise. "1 mean that I have walked four miles in the hot sun trv ing lo run down a rumor, and it won't pan out live lines." So Smith is going to quit the newspaper business becau-e lie has brains to sell when the m-w.-papers want nothing but legs. Of course Smith's place will have, to be tilled. That is. a man will have lo be put on when Smith vacates*. The man who stays on will have legs, but he will have brains also, lie will know, first, what news is. That will require brains. Knowing what news is, Smith's successor will get that news, and he will gel it quickly.
