The minis- ter's wife sighed. 1 At last the evening was over, the compa- ny all gone, the baby asleep in his warm nest, and Louise and Mrs. Carter had time to look over their presents. Mr. Carter was one of the kind of men who get dressing-gowna aad slippers made for them. Mild, proper men look, well in gorgeous, palm-leaved dressing-gowns; men with very proper opinions can wear blue cashmere with salmon facings beamingly. Mr. Carter received on this eventful even- ing nine dressing-gowns, ten pair of slip- Joseph's coat, of many three mufflers for wet or cold Sundays, mit- and like Mary's little lamb, with fleece white as snow, tea- colored mittens with short wrists, copper- colored mittens with long wrists, but all for the minister. None for Tom, who had to cut wood and tend the stable while the rev erend gentleman was taking his morning nap, or for Phil or Ned, who were always out at fingers and toes. "We can ravel some Of jtbjein out and knit them over for tbe said Mrs. Cotter to her daughter consolingly. after we dry all those she returned with a sarcastic laugh. We can't eat all those pumpkins unless we dry them for winter, too." i I say, sis, Where's alft-your cake'.' I'm hungry as a who had had a good evening's work caring for the horses of their guests.

"Ohdearl" Mrs. Carter stopped in her tour of the rooms before the ruin of what was once a beautiful and costly vase, R was one of her wedding gifts from a loved friend, and it was hard for the tried woman to keep back the rising tears.

HOW IT HAPFKKED TO BE INCREASED BT A PRACTICAL HINT. "We must do something for our minis- ter." said Mrs. Peter Podgers, the wife of the richest man in Plainville. echoed Mrs. Deacon Weeks, we must! The poor man needs it very much. It-Is a great pity his wife is so sickly; and many children! They had enough before the baby came. It's'a great pity he bos such a wife; but we must try to lift the burden from his shoulders, the blessed man I What do you say to a donation, my dear? Ah! you are so The very thing that I was going to propose, you know While these worthy fadies are discussing the minister and his we will peep Into the parsonage. Mrs. Carter, the minister's wife, is rock- Ing the cradle. In it lies Rupert, a sickly, teething baby, the pet of the household. Louise, the eldest daughter, a noble-look- ing, high spirited girl of eighteen, ts ripping on antediluvian pongee dress. I declare, mother, it is a sin, a shame- ful sin, to deny papa an increase in his sala- ry. What do you suppose Mrs. Weeks said to me the other people thought it very strange that Philip and Ned do not go to church this fan, and we ought to be very careful about the example we set be- fore our people. As if the boys wouldn't be glad to go to church if they had decent clothes! I declare I don't know what we are going to do for those boys! At that moment the two boys in question burst noisily into the room, exclaiming: Mother, mother, we're going to hove a donation next week. Jim Weeks said so. Don't you suppose they'll give us some new Jackets? Tom Podgers and the other fel lows laugh at us and call us 'Old Patch.' I go to school another added Ned, and wear this darntd old and the little boy threw off his much-mend- ed jacket with an air of disgust. My son, what did you say asked Rev. Adolphus Carter solemnly, thrusting -bis head into the dining-room. I said pa. And if it aln'i darned, I'd like to know what it replied the young rebel, pointing to numerous darns on the despised garment. "Pa" groaned mildly and retreated into the study to Indulge in unseemly mirth at his son's wit. If I was bim I'd give them a piece of my mind, minister or continued Ned, unabosbedL sold his mother. In duo time the night appointed for tbe donation party came. It was clear and cloudless; the young Carters' hearts beat fast with expectation. Mr. and Mrs. Podgers came first. They brought a bushel of small sized potatoes and an elaborate dressing-gown for the min- ister. Deacon Weeks kept a grocery, and he brought a firkin of crackers anil half of a small cheese. His wife contributed a pair of slippers to the minister's wardrobe. Her daughter brought him a watch case and a tidy for his study chair. The house wits crowded; all Plainville was there, and every one was blessed with a good appetite. There is cake enough in the pantry to last them a month.'1 said Mrs. Weeks com. placenlly to the latest comer, a plain little woman with a roll of cotton flannel under her water-proof. I wonder bow much there will be left aft- er we are all said the little woman. Mrs. Weeks smiled A great deal." Bamantha Jordan brought Mr. Carter a splendid dressing-gown, blue with salmon facings; and such a pair of slippers as Ar- villa Mason presented to bim with a neat little speech! said Mr. Podgcra, clearing his throat and speaking In his most weighty don't think our minister can who brought Ned a mlschievoi Jip. "Tom Olass is the very bestest fellow of all, and I think Jip is declared Ned when his mother discovered Jip sur- reptitiously supping the baby's beef-tea in the pantry. "I'm glad one is exclaimed Louise, vigorously scouring tbe best knives. "Why, ain't naked Phil with wide-open eyes. "Graciousl don't I wish Ned and I could wear those igowns." Will you wear them If I will suits of exclaimed Louise sudden ly with mischief in her eyes. The boys hesitated, but Tom offered inducements in tbe shape of jack-knives, and they prom- ised, j I'll do it, said Louise as they parted for the night, or rather morning, for it was three o'clock a. m. before Louise had washed the dishes and cleared up comforta- bly after the party. said Louise demurely the next morning, "what are you going to do with all those should like to reserve the blue one for certain occasions, but'you may do what you please with the Tom winked knowingly across the table at little Phil, who trod on Jip's tail, intend- ine to communicate his delight to Ned, who did not seem to take the I have received an invitation to exchange with the Rev.

Louise assisted in the Impunity the heaviest snow-storm or coldest winds known in these latitudes. The use of leggings has become general for small children in cold weather. The fashionable style is that kind of double zephyr that in (shade will match the coat. Occasionally they are made from or velvet, but these ore more expensive and less comfortable than the zephyr. Those for babies In conches are long enough to reach the w.alst, and often have feet attached. Fortunately for children who suffer from earache, Kate-Qreenaway bonnets, pictur- and quaint hoods to match the dress, are in fashion .this winter. These protect the ears from cold, and are prefer- red by prudent mothers who fear that troublesome and painful disease of ohild- hood, ulceration of tbe ear, which is often duo to careless exposure (o cold winds. The true secret of health is exercise in the open air in all weathers, excepting rain or sleet, taking care to be well wrapped, up from the cold. Infants too young to- run and play are best indoors, according to high medical authority, whenever the ther- mometer is between Fahrenheit, or the sun Is not shlniqg. The British Medical Journal says that the practice of wheeling children about in perambulators in cold weather, sitting or reclining in one position, without exercise, is particularly harmful. We would earnestly appeal to mothers to put aside all feelings of vanity, or what is miscalled natural pride, and cover the arms, neck and legs of their children, as a simple sanitary precaution. High frocks, long sleeves, and warm stockings should be worn out of doors; hats which cover the head. there Is in America. Miss Leo is twenty-six years old, and her husband has passed forty. His first was the "Russian a 500-pound Yenus., who died of dyspepsia in Pittsburgh in 1880. Before the season ended MofBttr married a Circassian beauty of Milesian extraction1. She died last sum- mer, and before the Barnum show conclud- ed its season the tatooed widower was head over heels in love with the fascinating Spanish bearded lady." Although beard- ed, she possessed all the coyness of her sex, and Mr. Moffitt was compelled to -use all the eloquence which once made him famous as a side-show "blower" to persuade her to accept him. "Old John Geary, the most skillful swordrswallower in the counlry, is the step father of Miss Leo, and gave her away. Miss Leo wanted to have her beard shaved off in honor of the occasion, but Mr. Mofiitt, who is of a practical turn of mind, opposed it on the ground that she might not bejable.to raise another crop, in which event. her value as a freak would be totally, destroyed. Mr. and Mrs. MoflBtt went to New York last evening. After the ceremony Mr. Geary, a freak of fifty years standing, invited twenty- of his most 'intimate acquaintances home to dine with him. Mr. Geary's present wife is professionally known as Mile. Cathlene, the skeleton woman." When in showing condition she weighs seventy pounds, and, as her husband graphically expressed it, there isn't enough meat on her to feed a Scotch terrier." Now, however, Mademoi- selle Cathlene is what Mr. Geary is pleased to call as "fat as butter" and weighs nine- ty pounds.

I suppose it .was a bold stroke, but it produced the de- sired effect When Mr. Carter came home, refreshed and enlivened in body and 'mind by his brief visit, he was surprised by a call from she had some plans of her own to execute while he was absent. Mr. Carter would have enjoyed a trip to Europe very much, or even a summer at the White Mountains, but if he could not have1 it he, would be content with a visit to Brattleboro with the contents of Deacon Weeks's hat, which was passed around at the donation, in his pocket. He's as blind as a bat to our said Tom once, more forcibly than elegant- ly expressing the trutu of "the case. All Piainville was electrified the next Sunday with seeing Louise march up the broad aisle to the front pew, the minister's pew from time immemorial, with two fan- tastically-attired children following her. They were Phil and Ned clad in blouse waists and Knickerbocker trowsars made of two of those dressing-gowns I The ground- work of Phil's suit was seal-brown, but the orange leaves, shading off to scarlet, nearly covered it. Ned was more gorgeous, if possible, in a light-blue twilled cashmere with Its enor- mous high colored palm leaves. Louise was not at all particular in match- ing in making up the little boys' clothes, and the effect was startling, to say the least. Tom came in a few minutes later with the Rev. Mr. Stone, and on bis hands he wore a pair of those mittens. "I never beard of anything so said Mrs. Weeks to her husband after church. Perhaps they hadn't-anything to wear; you know the little fellows haven't been to church lately. Who saldheslow- Mrs. Weeks thought of what she had said to Louise with regret. I wish you had voted, .to raise Mr. Car- ter's she said timidly. Deacon Weeks was a dull, plodding, hon- est, kind-hearted man, very set in his own way, but when an idea once entered his brain it worked like yeast until something came from it. It was so with his wife's remark; he thought about it. Something else happened before the min- ister got home. Louise had a party. She Invited old and young from far and near, warm as possible. On coming from the street, both boots and stockings should be changed; and, if the feet are cold, a warm 'foot-bath should be used for a few minutes. The exquisite pain of chilblains could be saved to many children by the use of hot water for hands and feet." Rubber overshoes, which may be had in the smallest size, are a necessity for every school boy or girl, and the gossamer water- proof will save many times the cost in doc- tors' bills. The woolen waterproof, how- ever thick, becomes damp in a heavy rain, and bos no chance to dry among the wet wraps in a crowded cloak room, but must be worn home in that state, at the great risk of taking cold. Warm clothing at night is'fully as im- portant as warm clothing during the day. Delicate children should sleep in flannel. Canton flannel is heavy enough for those of more robust constitutions. Every one who has had the care of child- ren, is aware of the tendency to kick off the bed clothes, a practice most productive of colds and croup. For this reason night- drawers are' better than night-gowns for all except babies, and for them the gowns should be long enough to come down well over the feet. The style of night drawers with feet at- tached like a stocking, is an excellent one for small children.

It not seem very long ago when Trinity, St. Paul's and St. John's, with half a dozen elderly clergyman working in the easy-go- ing, old fashioned way, made up by the sub- stance of the parish which was the spiritual home of the oldest representative Church families. The parish at this time busied itself with extending tbe interests of the Church the most of 'em marry opposites. I only know one case where a fat man married a fat woman. There's Hannah and John Batters- by. She's the fattest woman that ever show- ed through this counlry; weighs something like 600 pounds.'and keeps gaining flesh right straight along. John, her husband, used to do the living skeleton business, but he got so lean that he couldn't walk, and he had to give up traveling. They live here in Frankford. He runs a blacksmith shop and peddles boss medicine. He has to be trundled around in a hand cart. Well, I guess he won't weigh more than sixty pounds. You heard about that skeleton, Spfague, who married a beauty out of Bun- nell's woman-show, didn't you? Well, that man has got a two-hundred pound wife and setts.' the way, the Battersbys have a mightyrhandsome daughter. Yes, a young woman.1. No, neither fat nor lean. There's a fat girl at Bunnell's that is married to an animal-keeper.. John and Mary Powers travel as brother and sister, but they are man and wife. That's the only fat couple I know of. Forepangh had a fat man who married an Albino, and John B. Doris en- gaged a fat woman that was married to a canvas-man. Fat Lottie Grant is married to a lean ventriloquist." Here Mr. Geary paused to light his pipe. Then he resumed his interesting "There's Colonel Goshen, the you know; he got struck on little Daisy Henry, who isn't much higher than his knee. She's the freak that married General Whatman, a dwarf, who is ugly enough 'to sour milk. The Chinese giant once told me he had half a dozen wives at home, but I think he was pulling my leg. That ugly little Chinese dwarf who was with the Barnum show last season was on the flirt all the time. He has a wife and five children in Hong Kong, but he is engaged to be married to as sleek a looking white woman as you ever saw. He met her in Baltimore, and she followed the show for a month. Why, you'd be astonish- ed to know the number of women that fall in love with freaks.'" The historian said comparatively easy to have a supply of fresh meat of home production a large pro- portion of the timei Fresh fish are of course difficult to obtain unless a farmer has a fish- pond or lives near a lake or a riverv He can, however, have salt and smoked fish as often as they may be desired to form a change in the ordinary bill of fare. As to flour and meal and all kinds of prepared grain, are as easily and cheaply obtain- ed in the country as in the city. The like is true in relation to tea, coffee, sugar and all other kinds of groceries. The articles above enumerated constitute nearly all the sub- stantial things that pertain to good living. Fine fruit, fresh from the tree, bush or vine, is one of the most essential elements of good living. This can be had in abun- dance 8by all farmers who live in most of the States of the Union. It can be produced as cheaply as any kind of food, and is vast- ly more wholesome and nutritious as iweli as more palatable than most of the articles found on farmers' tables. A small plot of land will produce all the strawberries, goose- berries and red, white and black currants that any family can consume -durine: the season of their ripening, and enough to sup- ply them with'canned fruit during the bal- ance of the year. As to grapes, they are as easily and cheaply raised as potatoes, agd are adapted to a large number of purposes. During at least three will sup- ply the table with a most 'delicious and wholesome article of food which is relished by persons of all ages. As a breakfast dish grapes are unsurpassed; as table ornaments they are the equals of flowers. They are excellent when canned or when tnade jnto pies and jelly! Wine can be made of those that are not quite fair enough to supply the table or market, and vinegar can be made from those that are quite inferior. By tak- ing pains with their preservation, they may be kept in a fresh state till the winter holi- days. In this latitude no kindrof fruit is more easily produced than the early Rich- honor of GarfieWs success ever since The greater part of a cargo of sound cocpanuts shipped from tne West Indies were found, upon arrival at Philadelphia, to 1je worthless. Rats had gnawed out the eyes, drank the milk and thus ruined the meat of the nut. A little sensation was produced in a De- troit hotel when it was discovered that the Harmon, was in reality a girl.

Owey, 17 years old, who stood six feet eight inches in his stockings. His death was a mysterious one. He became unconscious at 11 o'clock in the forenbon and 2 o'clock in the afternoon. He never would see visitors, and for'the post several years could not be Induced to leave the house. The Ohio Legislature is considering the of foods and medicines. It is informed by a Cincinnati chemist that UviSr and kidney complaints, so common anij de- structive to human life, are largely due to the use of sujphuric acid in the manufacture of sugar and syrup. He also declares that quinine pills are extensively adulterated, rpvn i J mond cherry. The trees come into bearing ;arjQ that many other medicines are not to be quite early, and are. very productive. The trees are ornamental us well as useful. In nearly every State in the Union some varie- ty of peach, plum and pear does exceeding- ly welj. As to apples, they will grow any- where that corn will mature and in many sections beside. In all the Northern States and Territories cranberries and blueberries can be raised with very little trouble or ex- pense. With all these fruits at his com- mand, no farmer can afford to se.t a poor Next to fine fruits, fine vegetables add as much as anything to the essential part of good living. It is singular, however, that while they are always found on tables in. towns and cities, thej are seldom seek on the tables of well-to-do farmers in the West. Nearly all farmers raise common potatoes, cabbage, beets and onions, but the list of vegetables extends but little further than these. They have no asparagus, lettuce, egg-plant; celery, cress or pie-plant. They have a mess or two of green peas and a have a succession of them during several months. They have no Lima beans, and few or no bush beans. Ordinarily they have no sweet corn, no sweet potatoes, and very poor tomatoes and cucumbers. iMany farm- ers raise no pumpkins, and are at no pains to raise squashes for use during the winter and spring. If they raise turnips, they ofjhe varieties that are only, fit for stock- food. No.water-cress is found in any of the springs or streams on the farm, and no grape vines nourish on the high places that are valuable for the production of little else., Comparatively few farmers raise melons, though liicy will grow with very little trouble. In farmers deny themselves most of depended upon. A Western museum man says there never was a real Circassian girl in the show busi- ness in America, and that Circassian show- girls are made, not born. On the other hand, living skeletons have to be born. They can't be' made. He says that Circassians; canni- bals, what-is-its, tattoes, handsomest-women- on-earth and all that sort of thing can be made to order, but skeletons, fat people, midgets and giants are the handiwork of na- ture. The Presbyterian Church in Nottingham. Pa., is -in an uproar about dancing. For some time the pastor .has been scandalized because the juniors and some of the elders persisted in the amusement, and on the last communion-day he requested all offenders to take back seats. No less than seventy- two obeyed were denied communion. Since then twelve hare capitulated, and the sixty are given until March 1st to repent and confess. The parson's pretty daughter is among the is reckoned the very best dancer in the lot.

Returning home, the wife after a time found herself about to become a mother, but had not the courage to divulge the se- cret. She gained her parents' consent to go 'to a school at Cincinnati. Arrived in that cijy, she in a few days informed her husband through the old channel of the newspaper that he was a father, and the happy parent hurried to her side. Personal Items.
