Sho had an excellent husband and Throe Good children. Was naturally a kind Excel Lent woman and meant to do right Sho had Ono fault and Small As it so Road to Hor it occasioned much sub Appless in the fam ily Circle. Sho was not always Happy at Homo nor was Sho always pleasant Tho for Tho Limo of Hor she could not toll what had occurred to luf Flo Hor feelings Sho had everything about Hor calculated to Boot Joy and Hor Ivory reasonable wish was answered but after All she often Woro a sour face and hoi Tongue would run on in Fai from Sweet or accordant. Is Tho matter asked hoi husband As he returned Ono opening from Tho stoic and found his Wiio with a sour face on. Was Tho answer1, Givon rather moodily. But something must be Tho matter you Novor look so Whon you Are How can i help my looks can t i look As i fool without disturbing pshaw the Hus band said at the Samo placing his Aims about her Nock and kissing Hor. Now toll to what has happened has happened More than Usu uttered Tho wife still unpleasantly who would t to sober i d Hoo to know stuck up Scio from Nio ining till night with two squalling Ypung Onos to look out for All Tho squalling Yong repeated Albert an expression of pain passed Over his face. Their look a cited the wife pointing to where her youngest child a girl of four j oars was just cd a big up to Tho Toa table after the sugar bowl. Got out of that you Hittle brat that now lot to catch Jou up Thoro again Stop that it i say. You touch that sugar again and i la give Jou such a Licking As you won t the poor child tried in vain to Lush its sobbing and instinctively crept to its father s Side. To placed his Arm around the Little one and raised it to his knew and in a moment More its reddened inflamed Cheek where Tho Mother s blow had fallen was pillowed upon the father s bosom. Of Job said the wife now you la pot the bit i d like to Havo you stay with Emall Day we d Soo How much patience you d . " i would it least remo Mboi that she was my said he and also Bear in mind the simple fact that Tho Joung disposition May gain All its impulses from Iho exam ple it receives at Tho bands of its guar Dian. Of yes that s it of am always and then mrs Loeman put her apion to her eyes and began to cry. Of course Tho husband could say no More. He had Ofton very often suffered All this Bosforo and he had tried to make his wife see How much real unhappy mess Sho was making for herself but Sho would not listen or it she did Tho impression was not lasting in fact she had no patience with bar children and Tho single raffle of a moment was Quioto make a happiness for Hor she loved her husband fondly and her children she Lovoll too. Sho was proud of them and for their Comfort she would sacrifice any amount of personal convenience. Many and Many an hour of Blissful Joy did she pass with Hor husband when the sky was Clear but a Cloud was sure to bring the storm. For years not a Day passed that had not seen Somo unpleasant passages Between herself and Hildi on and Sho would not understand that her very Mode 01 treat disposition she manifested and the language she Suie warping Tho minds of Tho Little ones. In pain and husband had tried to show Hor this but she would not listen and then when she was Calm and reasonable Albert could not find it in his heart to destroy the Pence by such allusions. On Tho present occasion supper was eaten in silence. The husband was pained and the wife angry. The child once cried fora Lump of sugar and the Mother jerked a piece upon her plate with the words 1 Thero take it you want everything you set your eyes on the Little Ono ate the sugar in silence while Tho Mother Felt More dismal still from this now outburst. And thus matters went on for an hour and it the Enid of that Timo Tho door Bell rang and some company was introduced it was a neighbor and his wife in n Tho whole expression changed. Smiles 1 took to place of Hor words Woro As Swoot As could during Tho whole evening Sho was As Guy As though a Cloud had never rested upon her brow said her husband after Tho Visi tors Hod gone since to have Boon mar ried Havo i not done All in my Power to make you Happy Havo you Ever expressed an Arnost Beart Felt with that i have not Don t said Tho wife rather reluctantly. Yes you do replied Albert incl what i wish to know is this Why you could Nosti Aveiao much to make me Happy As you will to make those who Are not dependant upon you for happiness. When i Caine hot no this evening worn and fatigued with the labors of Tho Day we y could you not have met to with a smile and Cho Eiful because i did t fool like smiling was the reply. But you smiled Tho moment or. Bixbee and his wife came in and that too when your feelings Woro anything but pleasant a moment Tofoi a can you do for then com fort what you Are not willing to do for my i do the bust i can i am sobbed mrs Looman beginning to cry. I wish you d found a wife who could h Avo suited Jou better than i i nov i can suit you Abby was in tears and Hor husband could say no More. To could Only wish that Sho would understand him. Of How often Ivhon she was kind and Good did he wish Sho would Al wry to so and again when Sho was milking company so Happy How for Vonty did lie Pray that Sho would always do Tho same for him. Sho was a neat tidy industrious woman and Only Hor own fam ily know of this dark trait in her charac Ter. In Tho same town with Abby lived Hor sister who married a Young Man name chaily Fiyo. Chaises was some eight and Twenty and his Wito Ahby sister some Throo years younger. Tho Young Man was a Tii Pontore by Trade thy generous and of Superior intellect and Itell Monco. His business was Good and though to Woie a paper Cap ton or twelve hours i Day Yot to was laying up Money. Lydia Fry was unlike sister in Ono Rosput. That scout smile which visitors found up on Hor face Novor faded in Hor husband s presence and Tho Woid which the stranger Hoard Hor speak to Hor child were More Baish when Alono with Hor Little Ono Sho loved Hor husband and she loved Hor child and never did she knowingly speak a word which could bring a Cloud upon a member of Hor family. And Between these two Sisters Thoro was an estrangement several times had Lydia expostulated with Abby on account of Hor fractious treatment of her children and once she had gone so far As to put Hor arms about her sister s child and protect it from Tho mothers rage and it had Munfort i Anatoly happened that on that Xor oven j ing or Loeman asked his wife Why he o could not be As kind and mild always a her sister was. Then added to this Somo meddlesome neighbor told Abby that her sister bad Given her husband Albert some advice As to How to might Best punish his fractious wife. This capped Tho Climax in Abby s mind and from that time there was no Intercourse Between the Sisters. One Day Albert Camo Homo with the pleasing intelligence for his wife that Hor Fathay would be Thero Tho next morning and that to intended to Settle Down vol Ali him and find a Homo. A u us ecstasies. She loved Hor father for he was a Good Man and had Ever been kind to his child Ren. And to was wealthy too on the following Day Moses Goi him Camo. To was an old Man now list sixty with White hair and benevolent look and Abby was very Happy. Her father told her he had finished his travels and meant to Settle Down with one of his children for the remainder of his Days. Of Courso you will come and live with said Abby. We be got Tho most loom and arc the Best Able to keep a my replied the old Man with a smile i am better Able to keep myself but i can Tell bettor when i Havo been i hero a spell at the end of a week to informed Abby and her husband that he that Day do posited in the Bank inc qty thousand Dol Lars in their name and they might Liaw it As they pleased he thus Wisl Iod Thorn to enjoy apart at least of their Patrimony while be of Courso Tho a Caw can imagine How this announcement was Lecei Ved. But the old Man did not Stop Long to Hoar their thanks for to and the Samo 01 Rand o deliver to Lydia and hoi husband. To found Charles Frye and wife both occupying Ono Chan when to entered. Lydia sitting in Charles Lap and Tho child in hoi s he told them what to had Dono. And it was some Timo Ero one of them could speak. But Charlos was the first to break Tho silence said to in a Low. Tremulous i accept your generous offer and the More readily 4oo Bocala Oldknow it comes from Tho hand of love. But sir i could not Havo asked could not Havo expected the ground that i am your son in Law. No no. For in this Noble woman you have Given to a treasure such As few men posses. Of you cannot know what a Yeuvon on Oarth Luy Home is while but Charles had undertaken a work he could not perform. Tho words stuck in his Throat and the speech ended in a flood of tears. His Gonzlo wife Sank upon Bis bosom and Tho old Man went to the window Ana pretend to. Lie looking at something in the Street notwithstanding it was 7ery dark there and that to had his hand kerchief before his eyes All Tho while another week passed away and during the most of the time the old Man remained with Abby. After this he began to Soo the Cloudy disposition Manifest itself. To was pained and shocked. He spoke with Hor but she pretended Sho could not help another week passed on and during thai time or Gorham spoke with his child touching her fault but still she did not Amend saturday Evonie g came and Abby Loe Man was in her chamber. Her oldest child a girl came up and told Hor that grandpa was going to had got his trunk at the door. Abby could not believe she started for sitting room at once. In the Hall she stopped for Tho door was ajar and she heard her fathers voice. It was in a pained tone and it struck to Hor soul at onto. No no she heard to old Man say cannot remain bore i had intended to make my Homo with Abby for she is my oldest living but i Connot Bear every Day my heart is made to ache by the harsh unkind words hear spoken to or Little ones. Of such Good kind children and i Lovo them so. But Abby will not listen even to to. Once1 i Mig it have Borno it but now when my heart is sad from recent boreal rant i can not Branit. Twill Como and boo Iyo a and you shall have Tho old share of my Lovo and i fear she is not kind to Vou always. Has Lydia told you inquired Al Bert. Uttered or. Gorham in sur prise. She told me a you Don t know Hor if you think so. No she has Only told me what a Good faithful wife Abby was. Aut i can see As my presence grows Moio common Tho restraint wears off and Abby begins to show to the face she often keeps for Home. I speak1 this to you Al Bert because i would not lie to you. But but i will see you again. I will Soo a by Abby listened to him no longer. With n wildly boating bursting heart Sho hastened to Hor room and throw herself Apon her Bod and Thoro Sho Lay for a Long Timo. When her husband Camo up she was sick and won to asked Hor what to could do for her Sho said she would to loft to her self in o moment to mistrusted that she had heard a part a part of Hor father s remarks and left her. Ono Day Little Nellie looked Pale and sick and cried a Good Deal with a pain. It was Tho youngest Tho Abby was fractious but Sho did not spank As harshly us usual. She bad tried to Reform since Hor hither loft a week Bosforo but she allowed a spirit of anger to Lini soul on account of Tho Louiso to bad pursued so Hor trial did not amount to much. Whon Albert Camo Homo Tho child was worse and by this Timo it had become so sick the Mother was sorry that she had Boon so harsh through Tho Day or. Looman wont for Tho doctor and when the Man said that Nellie had the Scarlot fever. All night Tho Little Ono suffered much and its checks and brow seemed on Firo.
