This Quot want by in a pro vat family an amerious girl of Good Eha Nuster and Dispo Airion to do a owing aaa it in the care of children and make herself generally usef til in the fun right kind of a person May through dim see Ore a Good Home with fair Yommi tion for mar idea. Good ref Reneee will by i have a great mind a amused Anna the Melma Dupont As she sat in the Little room allotted her in her aunt s Small House Quot i Telegraph charges. The new York times Calls attention to the enormous charges for telegraphing which the Public have to pay and justly remarks the prices charged Are perfectly outrageous. On the continent of Europe one can Send a message across the whole breath of France for a single Ranee Twenty cents while the shortest dispatch from Albany to new York costs by cetus. There is no excuse for this. It is the most profitable business in the country. All the lines Are making enormous dividends upon a capital three five and ten times the Cost of the lines. There is no reason Why the Public should pay such outrageous prices for the service. The Cost of working a Telegraph b very Small compared with a a Road or any thing else yet the charges in proportion Are much higher. This matter is beginning to command a Good Deal of pubic attention and will command More unless a remedy be speedily applied. The number of Graves of recognized corpses at Andersonville exceeds 13,000. Or. A. C. Hamlin who was ordered to visit Andersonville to examine and report on certain Points in the Wirz trial helps us by statistics to a comprehension of the enormous loss these figures represent he shows from the official records of the British army that less than that number of lives were lost in five of the bloodiest Battles fought in the first quarters of Tjimis Century. Col. Jacq lbs arrested on the charge of aiding in procuring an abortion Wuch resulted in the Delhi of a Young woman has been discharged the charge not being sustained. A Palm in Southern Illinois tells of a Young woman who appeared before a magistrate tiie Day after her marriage and complained Itiat her husband Lud been liberties with have a great mind to apply for that situation. I am not competent to teach music. I can not get a school with such Competition As i find. I will not Drudge at my Needle for the Small pittance i should earn. I can not go into a store. I must not live on in this Way dependent on the Bounty of my Good aunt who has barely Money enough to support herself and educate her daughters. I la go speak to Olive was her twin sister in person but not in mind or heart. Olive sat in her aim s room stitching on some Fine work. Both girls were a Essed in Plain and simple Moi Ming. They were orphans. Since the death of their Mother which occurred when they were on seven years old their father had us ported them on his Small salary and educated them As Well As he was Able. Or. Dupont had been a wealthy Man but his failure and a Shock of paralysis which prostrated him Long after had so reduced him in circumstances and health that he was never afterwards Able to take his place among the business men of his fraternity but was glad of an inferior position and enough salary to enable him to live in Comfort always hoping that some Lucky Chance would turn up by Means of which his children would be left Independent when he should be taken away. A Maiden sister superintended his Small household but she died the year the Sisters left school and it was their pleasure to manage family affairs. Three years More of quiet Contentment and a Small share in the social pleasure of the circles they moved in and or. Dupont was brought Home to his Small House never to leave it again alive. The poor gentleman was dreadfully distressed concerning the future of his Darlings indeed his mental anguish was so severe that it induced fever of the brain and carried him off suddenly. Anna and Olive were thus left helpless Ungro dded for with scarcely Money enough to pay for a decent funeral and buy the cheap mourning that custom renders almost imperative and gladly availed themselves of a poor aunt s invitation to make her House their Home until they could provide for themselves. It was now three months since their father s death. They had realized something from the Sale of the household furniture and their kind relative would not receive their Little All for Board. Yet they knew she was so straitened in circumstances that it was with difficulty she made both sides meet and Felt themselves especially Anna in cum Brancasi though doubting not their aunt s generosity in the least. Olive looked up with an anxious face at her sister s Entrance. She was a pretty Brunette with a face that could gather Clouds or Sunshine at a moment s notice. The room was Small and having but one window there was always a sombre Shadow there. The furniture was old and massive and perhaps a trifle Musty. I m so tired Quot sighed Olive throwing the work aside for a moment. Quot of if we could have kept the cheerful Little House Quot yes if we could but we could not you know so there is no use of Well i m tired living this aunt can t afford it Quot she said with an appealing look. Quot that s very True she can not Quot replied Anna Quot and i have tried in vain to help myself. We both need clothes and must have them so i have concluded to Divide the Little Money we have buy myself what i really can not do without and go and earn my Quot at what Pray Quot queried the sister. Quot of an honest employment of course Quot said Anna still hesitating. Quot what you would not go into a shop Quot Quot no because the Drudgery would not suit me and if i must serve i prefer to serve one and not everybody. I think i shall answer this Olive read it Flushing Crimson with mortification and anger. Quot Anna you Widd not Quot she exclaimed indignantly. Quot it is too Quot it would not seem half so degrading to me As to live thus on the Bounty of our poor Quot we both help or Quot said Olive. Quot yes but she does not need our help and she is not Able to provide for us. Quot still you must be Jiting it can t be possible you Are in Earnest Quot but i am in Earnest Hove Semi and housework and am extremely Foi of children. I have tried hard to a other things to do both for you and for myself and have failed. I have walked myself into a headache nearly every Day for four weeks and i May fail in this advert moment my last resort if i can Gettuis place shall Quot yes Quot Tanily. Quot if she prove an indulgent one i Ishall not Quot ill never forgive you Anna Quot exclaimed Olive sternly. Quot Why Olive we mus live Quot replied Anna tear tally. Quot i really t see that i will disgrace myself or you. We must earn our living and in my estimation one Way is As Good As to be sure if i were celebrated for mar Genius in music painting or poetry i might possibly find More congenial employment for i love All these things As dearly As you do. Failing in these i am not ashamed of honest downright you were always mean spirited Anna Quot retorted Olive working herself up to a hotter resentment. Quot think what our poor proud father would say were he Quot but he is not alive Olive or i should not be needing a place. And if he could look Down on us from his Home of spirits i am very sure that As he sees such things now he would applaud my Resolution. At any rate i shall flatter myself that he does. He himself was not ashamed to occupy a subordinate position where he had been Quot it nearly killed him Quot echoed Olive. Quot besides it s different for a Man who is always expected to earn his living in some Public manner but for a woman to be a servant a Quot there is no need of putting it in that Way dear Quot said Anna softly Quot i Don t think any kind hearted woman who wants to secure a companion for her children would so treat any one who bore tie Marks of respectability. Of course if i am any Way imposed upon i can leave you i Anna it is abominable you Are Quot but what would you have me do ouse Quot Quot do ? anything but that Quot Quot and what Are you going to do sister Quot Quot i am going to get married Quot said Olive resolutely. Anna looked aghast. Quot or. Arnold has written to me i received his letter to Day and shall answer it to night Quot Quot or. Arnold Why Olive you Are not in Earnest Quot Quot Why not i in my mad resolve As you in yours ? i assure you that i respect my father s name too highly to disgrace Quot but Olive you Don t love or. Arnold you can t love Quot i neither do nor can but rather than work for my living i will marry him. He is Rich that is All i care for. Quot of Olive is it because of my Resolution ? i will give it up we will manage to stay together in some manner if we live upon a crust and cold you shall not sacrifice yourself Quot no use in talking Anna i had made up my mind before you came in to become the wife of or. Arnold. He is a Good Man for All i know and had planned it so nicely. You Are to come and stay with me of course shall stipulate for Quot no no Quot cried Anna shrinking Back Quot not for worlds. / i could not Bear to see you living so. Of Olive what inducement can i offer to Lead you to abandon this fearful project Quot none whatever my honest Little Sis ter unless you were better off than you Are. If you scorn my assistance and ref Iise my offer Why i can not help it. Of course i can not be expected to associate with mrs. Somebody s chambermaid of Oliver you know it is not that and a i at last am suited Perfy Quot in what any asked her find. Quot in the Yop lady yes she deserves that title who has come to superintend the care of the children and do Plain sewing. Yon May remember i advertised for one some time ago. A x sent off about a dozen applicants of i was Chi armed with the face and mating of the last beware of pretty servants Quot said the other laughing. Quot you have grown up sons to Day Anna lives Happy and Belov Edi and me Pale creature with the hectic cough and the Quick gasping breath who slowly and interrupt edly plies her shining Needle making perhaps her him shroud for she knows two a must soon die a is the widowed Oliver Tai entrant a fastened acid waiting meekly for the voice of the father that shall say Quot child come �?�o8t<m Waterman. Quot i am not alarmed Quot said mra. Richardson Haugli tily thou Fth miss Dupont has a Lovely Nimse a she is a sweetly modest girl who 4beiiiot, if i May say it make half enough of Hei position Humble As it is. She is a quiet christain trustworthy and i judge tolerably Well educated girl and if i can i shall make her place something different from what i intended. As for my sons i Trust they have been taught too thoroughly what belongs to their position and family Ever to lower themselves or offend me by any injudicious trifling with any member of my of of course you know i was Only joking. But Dupont really the name is familiar it seems to me there was Abe at Resti and shall use my Best endeavours to please my Quot a Bistress Quot said ouse sharply and with renewed anger. Sul what can have changed you so ? i am not changed said Olive Lenly. What shall i do my dear sister ? see no other Way open do As i have advised you. My Home shall be your Home. You shall have every Comfort be Well introduced and live at ease. I Don t wish you to work for your living a but Olive i have heard you say you despised or. Arnold Well Olive curled her lip a Little. How then can you take be solemn vows upon you ? How cute be the wife the bosom cd Man la the Jan you despise besides ugh air Jow that he is exceedingly flute if a la do his tastes Are Vul. Way a match for . But Anna he is Rich i Teutu. That s what i marry him for. I la ate i do despise him and i suppose i shall hand despise him Nore but for al that i shall Many him for i Tell you i will not work. And i had counted upon you for help and Comfort. It s too bad you have counted upon me in vain then Olive if in this matter you Are decided. I will not be a a to such hypocrisy. Of that i should say that of my own Only sister my twin sister. Olive i entreat you on my Yeiyu Knees not to commit this sin. In vain her pleading tears entreaties. Pm be seemed indeed changed from Lee living sister to the Coldi hard woman of the world already. She had made up her mind and was willing to abide tie consequences. Quot i am the most fortunate being in the world said mrs. Richardson to a mend who was malting a Ming Call. After having infinite trouble with girls one family of that name we were once intimate with. And i remember there was a miss Dupont married a few Days ago to that Rich old Arnold. I pity her i wonder if she was any relation to is girl Quot she was a sister i Brieve Quot said mrs. Richardson. Quot is it possible ? then Why Dosen t she live with her Quot Quot i have never asked her Quot said Are. Richardson. Meanwhile Anna Frimd her place by no Means repulsive to her taste. The children were Well trained and Are. Richardson was a thorough lady and knew How to be familiar without lessening her dignity. Besides Anna never perfumed. At times when she sat at tie table with the children she recoiled from her subordinate position but when she thought of her sister miserable As she must be in the midst of her luxuries ashamed of her husband s Boorish manners and innate vulgaris of thought and speech using his affection for her As a bait with which to win Gold and gifts sick at heart often As she thought of her sister s voluntary bondage from which nothing but death could free her she submitted cheerfully to her lot. Mid even found pleasure sweetening her lowly cares. The Little ones were curly headed Little Darlings at times Angels at times imps like All other children but she soon taught them to love her and by her gentleness won not Only their affection but the thorough esteem of their Mother. She seems a very Fine Young woman Quot or. Richardson remarked casually one Day. Quot and i am just now exceedingly distressed about her Quot said his wife. Quot Why so Quot Quot i have ascertained that she is an admirable musician and has been extremely Well educated. Yesterday i was at a loss for a French phrase when she gave me one in the most natural manner possible then coloured Crimson. I was astonished and i confess a Little indignant Why had she assumed this i cog was it to further some artful scheme ? but when she told me All understood her character at once. She was too proud honorable i should say to be dependent and finding it diff scuotto procure employment suited to her tastes she decided that she would find a Home where by honest labor she might earn her own living. I have about made up my mind that the children want a governess and am so delighted with her integrity acquirement and Independence that i think i shall put her in immediate Possession of theofice. What do you think Quot Quot do it immediately my dear and give her a Good salary. Such a teacher will be invaluable to our Little As a governess in the family of such people As the Richardson Anna s situation was an enviable one. Mrs. Richardson became As fond of her As if she were a daughter instead of a hire teacher and in her altered or Cumstay Ces Olive condescended to admit her sister again to her society. Anna cherished no hardness. In Many ways she tried to soften her sister s lot above al commending to her Hie religion of Christ without which i the highest earthly Happ Hiess is but the Light that allures and fades but with which the hardest lot is made not Only endurable but enjoyable. Quot Oanna Anna Quot she end Sim one Day in bitterness Quot if i had Only possessed your humility if i had gone to the most laborious service god forgive me for i have taken every step in Wil full wrong and i am justly of to be a servant of servants and be free Quot of what Avail the any the tears deception and Pride had brought their righteous Reward honest labor and a Humble heart had made her sister a Queen in her own right bitterly did she feel her degradation when night brought Homo the senseless inebriated who was rapidly Wistin his Fortune and who was not too obtuse to know that he had bought the wife without the heart which knowledge Oaly increased his brutality. The gentleman from Jones it will be remembered that during the late rebellion Jones county of missis Sippi seceded from the confederacy and declared herself an Independent re pub be. She Waji known As the free state of Jon. Amp lie has now declared her willingness to a Dir destries with her sister republics by Seriff a delegation to the late Mississippi a Niren tion. This gentleman whose Nail is Crawford is a talker. One of nth. Speeches was As follows or. President sir i have come up Here to express the feelings of my constituents on the great subject i come up Here sir to represent my constituents where i come from. People Hoot and Wink up the streets and say there goes the Mossy Back from Jones but sir i have no prejudices i am disposed to treat my enemies in a More Christian a More missionary spirit than they treated me. I am a Mossy Back sir and i stand Here to Day to represent the county of Jones otherwise known As the free state of Jones. But let no people think to insult me with impunity i love a dog for his faithfulness but the yelping of a Puppy i despise. People said that the county of Jones the free state of Jones seceded from Mississippi. Yes sir we did secede from the confederacy and sir we fought them like dogs we killed them like devils and buried them like assess Yea like asses sir my people did Down there in the county of Jones in their Sovereign capacity did secede and did become Mossy backs sir. We did fight them like dogs and did kill them like hellions like hellions i say sir.

The Yankee peddle there is a sheriff now residing in the state of Illinois who was Quot rather taken in and done for Quot on one occasion. He made it a prominent part of his business to ferret out and punish peddle re for travelling through the state without License but one morning he Quot met with his match Quot a a genuine Yankee peddle.
