8easotiabl3 Notes  of Interest to
Tlio sewage oi our cities -should not
bo wasted. Properly handled, it could
be made to transform thousands ol
acres ol now comparatively wortli-
Lg��B laud into the richest of cultivated soil, The garbage of these
cities is rich in nitrogen! and Bhould
l>o put upon the land Instead ui having costly furnaces imiit lu whleh
to. burn it.
Ho often the side branches ol farm
work lail to pay because carried on
negligently, a dozen Ulves 01 bees
should bring tlie former as much
revenue us a ten acre wheat Held. The
return the euro ol liis chickens would
bring is underrated, and eveu the children are nut trained to a proper Interest iu them.
When a piue forest is cleared oaks
at ouce spring up iu their place, and
vice versa; aud when a gap occurs
in a hedge it is useless tu -attempt to
refill it with, a plaut ol the . same
species, hut some other kind must be
used. In tlie theory ol rotation of
cropa tlie larmor only follows nature.
Tli.'y boast that the States feeds the
world, but it does nut by any means.
Tliey import farm products to the
amount ot fifty million dollars. There
are brought in more or less of all
the grains ; many horses and mules,
eggs, cheese, butter and condensed
milk; potatoes by tlie thousands of
bushels. Let us hope there will be
a change some day.
Let a neighborhood of farmers burn
over their wheat stubble iu such :
seasons as that pest, the Hessian
fly, Is most troublesome. Then sow
some quickly growing crop, and
plough under in the fail. One field
not burned will liarbor enough Hies to
supply  afresh  a  whole  township.
No farm was ever yet made to do
itu best. Grumbling over unsatisfactory results is useless and sinful, for
a bad state of things need not be in
irdinary circumstances. The prudent
and skillful farmer will make it pay,
���and his chance for a competence is
double that ol his city cousin. This
Is true, whatever the world thinks.
After all, liand-ple&lng la lighter nnd
better work than carrying the can of
poisoned water when -we would de**
stroy the Colorado beetle. By spending a few hours of two or three days
during the first week after the vines
appear nil the old beetles can be gathered off n patch, and there will be
but lew young onea to follow.
ProoC I" accumulating that it, was
only a revolution of methods which
was needed in Xew England    to reclaim her depopulated lands.    There
is in that region ample room for special crops, for admirable ranges, und
the forests can be    replanted    with
profit.    Our country has no cultivable
area that can not bo used, nor that
will not bo when we arc: driven.
"Barley sends  out    a    strong,  juicy
' btudc) which makes it a prime favorite lur  early pasture for  tho   sows
and pigs.    It is not profitable to over
stock any  pasture    with hogs    any ;
more than with other stock, lor they
should not approach the Winter ln a |
stunted condition.     Abovo all, it will I
.not pay  to feed them as Btock hogs
all the winter through.
The younger o pig is the less meal
it will take to put oa a pound of pork.
It is well to t-upplement the pasture :
with an abundant ration of chopped
grain, that they may be kept growing as fast ns possible. All grain
led them should be chopped or ground.
If possible, lu tlie pasture, give them
shade and  running water.
The demand for lean meat Is directly in the intero-st of the fanner, as it ;
is more profitabU to sell at moderate
weights than to make the hogs heavy.
The older a hog gets the more it
(osts to mako a pound of grain; It
costs twice us much at nine months
as at four. Therefore, sell at five .
or six.
Dry corn is too beating to be fed
to fattemng hogs in the summer time,
nud the digestive organs are not so
active ns ln cold weather. Either
givo food of a softer nature or soak
tlie corn. Brood sows will do better ua bran or outs; but all the herd
should have some addition to the
usual short pasture at this time of
the year.
A aure way tu weaken the constitution ui stucn is to breed fur a term oJ
yeara frum that which is Immature.
Tin* natural tendency among farmers
Is to do this v-i-y thing. Helling the
brood suwh because they art} Inclined

stronger litters.
if the HOWs ar-- well led during the
period uf Buckling a Bprlng litter of
pigs- they may as well be bred lor fall
litters, particularly if the owner has
nn aptness for caring ior growing pigs.
(Thus the better brood sows may be
kept doing duty tt) a good advantage.
Wga like green food as well as do
the calves aud colts, and the better
they are otherwise fed the better appetite they show for this green nibbling. Give the sows and piga a goud
ran uf tender pasture, and yuu nre in
a fair way to butter things in the Une
uf pork making.
If it be thought nut profitable to
keep over the late fall litt'erd of pigs,
they may be made ready fur roasting
at Gltrlstmaa time, and they will bring
good prices In nioet of our larger villages, as good as tlie shunts would
brUig in tlie spring. Peed tflwe
mothers well, that the pigs may be
When disease puts lu an appearance
among the hogs in a community- do
nut disguise It, but let it be known,
that all hands may take precautions
against its spread. Ever l>e on the
alert for cholera, for it oftentimes gets
Into one's herd before he is aware It
Is in the community.
Do not put sweet and sour and every
, other kind of cream together wheu
you go to ripen it. If it must l>e held
over to have sufiicient for a churning
the next day, let it be kept us sweet
as possible until the next cream
comes from the separator, and rlp&n
,iu together.
It i.s nut always the housewife's
fault that creamery butter cau outstrip lier in prices. It may be in the
���selection of thu cows, in the quarters
and care given them, In tho way the
milking is done, or in tho place which
Is provided for keeping the milk and
doing the churning.
Thousands of farmers nre keeping
cows which do not pay for their
keep, aad thousands more du nut keep
their cows so that there Is uny profit resulting Irom them. If It pays to
do anything well in auy line, It is
also true la regard tu butter making
oa  the farm.
It custs no more money to manufacture oleomargarine in winter thnn in
summer, whilo this Is not true of
winter dairying. In mauy localities
this unoipml competition has been
Stopped by legislation, und no longer
will organized capital be pushing the
honest, toiling dairyman ami tanner
to the wall.
Butter prices are likely to be
hlirher than fur years pnst because It
will cost something tu feed the cows.
The number of cows tu be milked is
already reduced by the short pasturage in many regions, even before
the usual end of the flush milking season.
It is nn essential tn economize with
tho work in the house and the dairy
as in the fields. Even though not
making dairying a specialty, if the
wife can have the proper eon v en i en ens
she Will make a, surplus of butter
which will lie a surprising help to
the income of the farm.
Neither atmospheric change nor the
quantity of electricity during thunder showers causes the milk to sour,
but the bacteria 'to whicli we now

If thc erenm Is permitted to become

in some mysterious way, but it simply
fails to come out of the buttermilk.
Truly, most of our losses come from
lack of care.
Bacteria, those microscopic forms
ol plant life which produce the ripening chancres in cream, not only grow
and Ineronsr- with alarming rapidity
but e<ich exudes minute drops of
acid, which is so pour that none of
the commercial acids can compare
with It.
The temnnrature of the churning
room should be a liltle colder than
that of the cream, that the butter
may not wnrm up and become greasy
nor wnxv. If the crenm Is rich, containing a third of butter fat.it enn

degrees, or but n little beyond thut.
Ono reason why n hen which steals

because every egg has the same vitality. ,
Fur a ready cnsh business you can-
not discount' the cow and the lien.
One variety of fowls Is sufficient lor i
the farm, and do your best to keep
that breed pure. In nny event, when
a first-class cockerel can be bought:
for $.1 or less It Is nn easy matter
to grado up the poultry.
The proper season for turkey Is 1
tbe late fall nnd winter. In spring
and summer the meat is no longer
Juicy nor ol good flavor: though
sometimes served nt that time, they
are much inferior to the winter bird

the right time.
Farm chickens which have the run
or the fleldH nro the healthiest nnd the
most profitable because they get such
a varictv of feed and Insects. Tliere
is too much which Is artificial about
the usual poultry yard, and only they
nre successful who recognize and remedy this na much n.s possible.
It la a question whother more poultry and eggs are not raised about
our cities and villages than upon tlie
farms, Tho farmer has one flock upon
bis large farm, while tho village lots
bold a. hundred. Some breeds are
suited to the one and some to the
other condition. Rome nre not satisfied nur greatly productive in confinement.
1'repare good, clean nonts in proper
places fnr your hens, and you will not
be troubled by the liens stealing a.way
to lay; let them be low and on a
level. In their roosting coop let there
be but 100 cubic feet of space to 10
hens, letting everything lend to their
health and comfort.
Tiie old theory Hint fat hens will
not Iny well will hardly hold good.
Stint them not in n suitable variety,
avoiding tno mueh corn. There are n
score i��f things which enter Into the
secret of procuring profit, and it will
be your fault, and not that uf th'**
hens, ii' proper returns nn: nut forthcoming.
In keeping hens in large numbers a.
cost for feeding of about $1 a. head
must be reckoned, beside the expense
for labor. Therefore, if the sale nl
eggs only  Is depended upnn, n  large
averi  production must be kept up.
In surce:..-'ul chicken farming we must

A fowl which will lay IB dozen egffe

A Reporter's lo teres t tug Interview With
Him���Some Statistics aud Information
tit '.������tifl*1,l   \ itlilr.
(From tho Recorder, Brockville, Ont.)
Mr. t\. T. Fulfurd. who is understood
to have been doing big tilings in Paris
during the past winter and spring, introducing Dr. Williams' 1 ink Pills* has
reached homo with his family* and on
the evening of his arrival was Interviewed by a Recorder reporter, and
asAed to givo an account of himself.
" Wull," he said, ia reply to a question ou the status ol tho 1 ink Till
business in France, "ol course It isn't
altogether an easy matter to introduce a foreign article into a strange
market, but I don't think wo can complain of the progress made, and it is
gratifying tu report that snme, tit
least, of the Paris dneturs nro open

intrinsic merits can bj demonstrated

of J'iuii FilU iu their charitable work,
aad given strong testimonials as to
their good effects."
" How do yuu find business all
" Pretty good. We have sold lu the
past twelve months a little over two
million, three hundred and sixty thousand buxes of i ill.*. I'ills."
"That is a pretty large order, isn't
it ?"
" It is the best twelve months' business yet. Look fur a minute at what
thu figures mean. Il all tho pills were
iurneu out iuto a heap, und a person
set lu count thum, working teu hours

givo these figures to glorify the busi- j
ness, you will understand, but tu cu- i
ablo you to muko the facts tangible
u an ordinary reader."
"Does Great Britain do its share
in the business?-1 usked the reporter.
"Yes, 1 think wo have had a record there. The head of a leading
advertising agency lu London to
whom 1 showed my figures, lold me
that no business ot the kind had
ever reached the same dimensions lu
England fn as short a time; for I
though wc have ouly been working hi
Fngland two years, there art* but
two medicines there that have as
large a sale as Fink Pills, aud une
ol these Is over thirty years old,
while thc other has been at work ;
ai least half that time."
"How do you account for tho way
Pink Fills have 'jumped' the English
market then'.'"
"1 cannot attribute U In reasonable logic to anything but the merits ol the pills.
"Was everything lovely V" asked
the reporter, " or were there auy
crumpled rose-leaves iu tlio couch ?
"Can't grumble, except In oue way. ;
There's a certain amount of substitution In some retail stores, and there
is a man tn Manchester, England,
that I have had to prosecute on the
criminal  charge for   it."
"But what do the substltutors do :
���do they duplicate your formula un-
der some other name I"
"No, not a bit of it; that is the
worst feature of the fraud. No dealer
can possibly kuow what Is in Fink
Pills; and if ho did, he couldn't prepare them lu small quantities to sell
at a profit. Thoy are nut common
drugs, and by nn means cheap to ,
make. I suppose 1 have spent Irom
ten tu twelve thousand dollars, since ,
I took over the trade mark, in try- !
ing If the formula could bu improved,
and spent a share of it for nothing."
" What do you mean by ' for nothing T" \
"After I acquired the trademark
I saw that if tlio thing was to be
mado a success it was imperative
that I should have the best tonic
pill that could be gotten up. Consequently I obtained the advice aud
opinion of sumo of the most noted
men in mediclno in Montreal und .
New York���and expert advice ol
that sort Comes high. I made tho
changes In my formula suggested by
these medical scientists, and the favor
With Which the public has received
the medicine, demonstrates that it is
the most perfect blood builder aud
nerve tonic knuwn. However, I was
anxious to still further improve the
formula, ii that could bu done, ami
have since spent a great deal of
money witli that end ln view. On
going to London- two years ago, to
place i'ink Pills, I went into it
again, wiih tlio best medical men
tliere, ami as you know, the medical
expert Is not too friendly to proprietary medicines j and least of all to a
good one ; and I don't blame the doctors either. It Isn't good for their ,
business fi a man can get for fifty
cents medicine that will do him mure
good than $50 In doctoring. Consequently advice camo high, but I obtained tlie best there is, not only on
this continent but In London and ,
When I went to Paris last winter
1 placed my formula and a supply of
Pink Pilla in the hands of one of the !
most noted doctors in that city for a i
three months'    trial in his practice,
with a view to getting    suggestions
for improvement; at the cud of that
time his answer was, "Leave It alone, !
it cannot lie bettered.   Y'ou now have
a   perfect blood and nerve  medicine." i
This opinion cost me 10,000    francs,
but 1   consider It money well spent, ���
as  it determines the fact  that    the !
formula for Fink Pilla is now as perfect as science    can make    it.    And
; coming back to tlie question of substitution    and    imitations,    what    I
! have just told you witl show what a
! poor tiling it is for n man wlio goes
; to a store for Fink Fills to let some-

i it from me that a storekeeper who

What He Said to Chicago

'* Since coming to this city I lmve j
learned that -socialism Is regarded !
with terror  in    Chicago.  I   can  ro-
   ���      member    events  of some  years  ngo

Itut     bear  hi  in 1ml   that yeara  ago

your pulpits, may be the men who are
uow founding a new religion."
When quiet had been restored Mr.
Hardle ugain rose, and drifting back
Into the subject of socialism, he said:
"Socialists recognize the fact that
the presence of a monopoly Is a danger and a menace to the welfare of
a community,    a wild aulmal whose
elaws should be clipped,     But we are j
told that   great  wealth   aud  power
are only the due and fitting reward |
of   the   man of genius aud  capacity. ,
Was that the way Christ applied tils ,
gifts?     What wuh the lesson taught j
when la the upper chamber He washed
the feet of His disciples V    Service and I
-self-sacrifice    are    what underlie tho
true Christianity.     On these qualities :
true religion is based.     The man pos- j

Methodist   ministers  of Chicago In-1 (,PS UJli\ devours widows' houses,    The j
vlted Keir llardio to talk to them at- man who enriches blmsell at the-dx-
their weekly meeting, whleh was held
on Monday at   tho   First Methodist
Church  building.     Thc noted Scotchman wus ou time nud was accompanied hy  his secretary,     Back of   the
reverend gentlemen wt.ro curious people who
labor champion speak aud wlio wero
in hearty accord with his utterances.
Iu Introducing Mr. Hardle, Chairman Swift said:
" Gentlemen, we will uow listen to
Keir Hardle, President of the Independent Labor Party ol England, Honorary President of tho Ayrshire Miners' Galon, of Scotland, and ex-Member of the British Parliament." As
the speaker arose from liis chair he
waa received with much applause.
"I know,'* he began, "that I labor
under cliniculLles iu addressing an
audience of* this character, but there
may be computation ior my elsqunli-
licatlons. "There Is one dilliculty under which tin! church labors, to be
attributed to L1he education given to
the clergy. Their training ac universities and colleges is nut of a kind
to put the ministers la close touch
witu the everyday die of the common
people. Their theologies and philosophies all tend tu usurp tlie place ol
knowledge oi ihe common people, li
that kriuwLdgo Is wanting
nothing cau atone lor it.
I am nut denying that culture ami rtfmein nu are most ue Irahle
things. No ona appreciates these
qualities moro than myself, but you
can readily understand that It is possible 101* culture and refinement to
form a barrier between the clergy and
the masses of the people. In one of
your churches yesterday Rev. W. A,
Phillips preached a sermon iu which
he said; " A crowd can be got anywhere and at any tlmo unless it bo
for the purpose of going to church.'
Now, all will agree that whatever
tlie cause is for this state Ol affairs
it shuuid be discovered, aud, II possible, removed. A chB-rch which will
not draw a crowd representative of
the nation is certainly out of touch
with tho timos."  i
The prentliers applauded this sentiment with so mueh earnestness that
the speaker grew bolder. With a
voice which could be heard ou the
stairway without, he continued :
''To-day we have a caricature of the
life of Christ. It is to be seea everywhere in tho church. 1 was brought

Stake for Christianity's sake, in those
old days the cany Christians were no
doubt regarded as dangerous characters and the press���if there was a
press then, and I hope tliere wasn't���
called them fanatics aud unsafe people to be at liberty.
" But they weat to prison and suffered torture and death tor their religion, while the people, blinded by
centuries ol tradition nud systems uf
philosophies, scoffed at their belief.
���* Apart from the teachings of
Christianity let me say that the
teachings of Christ recognized the
necessity of collective ownership.
Christ's early disciples were communists, Land is indispensable io man.
That which is uot created hy man
and which Is necessary to human
life should not ho owned by man but
by men. I mean collective ownership. You have hundreds of thousands
of men in Anicrlea, made in the
imago of God, aud for whom Christ
died, who are denied the right to
earn nu honest living. Great Industries nro conducted at breakneck
speed until a largo supply Is accumulated, and then the works closedown,
leaving the wbrklngmen without
means or existence. As all men require food, raiment and nouso accommodations, tliese tilings sliould bu
under the control of the community
collectively. Tho land and industries
should be* owned collectively, not individually. This plan is approved in
Christ's teachings. Thc early Christiana were not only socialists, Imt
communists. Socialism is marching
onward and receiving recruits not
! only from tiie rank* of labor, but Trom
I all the thii,king, Intelligent classes."
Mr. llardio closed Iks address with
' a fierce attack upon tho liquor truf*
i fie, and was loudly cheered by minis-
j ters nnd laymen. Then Private Secretary Smith made a brief address, in
which he said:

���Too Many Windows Looking Toward
tlm God otThh- World.
Xew Vork, Sept. 8.���*fn his sermon
fur to-day Rev. Dr. Talmage has chosen a theme overflowing with Christian
cheerfulness and encouragement, The
subject Is, Open Windows, and the text
selected was Daniel, vi., 10: "His windows being open in ins chamber toward Jerusalem."
Tiie scoundrelly princes of Persia,
urged on by political jealousy against
Daniel, have succeeded In getting a
law passed that whosoever prays to
Cud shall be put under tiie paws and
teeth of tlie lions, who are lashing
themselves In rage and hunger up and
down the*stone cage, or putting their
lower jaws on the ground, bellowing
till the earth tremble-*!. Hut the leon- ���
Ine threat did not hinder the devotions
of Daniel, the Coeur de Lion of the
ages. His enemies might as well have
a law that the sun foiouid not draw
water, or that the smith wind should
not sweep across a garden of magnolias or that God should be abolls-aied.
They eould not scare him with the red-
hnt furnaces, and thoy cannot now
scare him with the lions. As soon a?
Daniel hears of this enactment he
leaves his ollice of secre t��-ry of state,
with its upholstery of c**imson and
gold, and comes down thc white marble steps and goes to his own house,
tie opens his window and puts th*
shutters back, and pulls the curtain
aside, so that he can look toward the
sacred   city   of  Jerusalem,, and   then
this hour, stand and sit and
Jerusalem. Some of these people played on the heather of the Scottish hills.
Bome of them were driven out by-
Irish famine. Some of them, ln early
life, drilled in the German army. Some
of them were accustomed at Lyons, or
Marseilles, or Paris to see on the
street Victor Hugo and Gambetta.
Seme chased the chamois among the
Alpine precipices. Some plucked the
ripe  clusters from    Italian    vineyard,
But it Is another Jerusalem toward
which we now need to open our windows. The exiled evangelist of Ephe-
sus saw it one day as the surf of the
learlan sea foamed and splashed over
the boulders at his feet, and his vision
reminded ine of a wedding day when
tiie bride by sister and maid was having garlands twisted for her hair, and
jewels strung for her neck, just before
she puts lier betrothed hand Into the

'What a picture it would be for some
artist. Darius, in the early dusk of
morning, not waiting for footman or
chariot, hastening to the den, all llush-
| ed and nervous and dishabille, and
: looking through the crevices of the
cage to see what had become of the
prime minister, "What, no sound!" he
says. "Daniel Is surely devoured, and
tlie lions are sleeping after their horrid meal, the bones of the poor man
scattered across the floor ot the cavern." "Wibh trembling voice Darius
calls out, "Daniel!" No answer, for
the prophet is yet in profound slumber.
But a Hon, more easily awakened, advances, and, with hot breath blown
down through the crevice, seems an- '
grily to demand the cause of this In- '
terruption, nnd then another wild beast !
' lifts his mane from under Daniel's I
��� i head, and the prophet waking up,
comes forth to report himself all unhurt and well.
But our text stands us at Daniel's
window, open toward Jerusalem.   Why
in   that    direction  open?      Jerusalem
was his native land, and all the pomp :
of his Babylonish successes could not
make  him  forget it.    He came  there
from Jerusalem at eighteen  years  of
age, and he never visited it, though he
lived   to   be   eighty-live   years.     Yet, ,
when he wanted to arouse the deepest
emotloas and  grandest aspirations  of
his heart, he had his window open to- j stone,
ward his native Jerusalem.   Tliere are
many of you  to-day who  understand
that without any exposition.    This  is

No wonder that the son of the Swiss,
when far away from home, hearing
the national air of hia country sung,
the malady of homesickness comes on
him so powerfully as to cause his
death. Ynu have the example of he-
role Daniel of my text for keeping
early memories fresh. Forget not the
old folks at home. Write often; and,
if you have surplus of means and they
are poor, make practical contributions, and rejoice that America is
bound to all the world by ties of san-
guinlty as Is no other nation. Who
can doubt but It Is appointed for the
evangelisation of other lands) What
a stirring melting, gospelizlng theory
that all the doors of other nations are
open toward us, while our windows
are open toward them!
But Daniel, In the text, kept this
porthole of his domestic fortress unclosed because Jerusalem was the capital of sacred inlluences. There had
smoked the sacrifice. There was the
holy of holies. There was the ark of
the oovenant, There stood the temple.
We are all tempted to keep our windows open on the opposite side, toward
the world, that we may see and hear
and appropriate Its advantages. What
does the world say? What does the
world think? What does the world
do? Worshippers of the world instead
of worshippers of God. Windows open
toward Babylon. Windows open toward Corinth, Windows open toward
Athens. Windows open toward Sodom. Windows open toward the flats,
Instead of windows open toward the
hills. Sad mistake, for this world,
* god is like something I saw In
ed as a bride adorned for her husband," Toward lhat bridal Jerusalem
are our windows opened?
We would do well to think more of
heaven. It fs not a mere annex of
earth. It Is not a desolate outpost. As
Jerusalem was the capital o[ Judea,
and Babylon the capital of the Babylonian monarchy, aad London is tho
capital of Great Britain, and Washington Is the capital of our own republic, lhe New Jerusalem Is the capital
of the universe. The King lives mere,
and the royal family of the redeemed

a congress of many nations, and the
parliament of all lhe world. Yea, S3

It is a joy for us to believe that while
we are Interested in them they are Interested In us. Muoh thought of heaven makes one heavenly. The airs that
blow through that open window are
charged with lite, and sweep up to us
aromas from gardens that never wither, under skies that never cloud, in a
spring-tide that never terminates, Compared With It all other heavens are
dead failures.
Homer's heaven was an elyslum
which he describes as a plain at the
end of the earth or beneath, with no
snow nor rainfall, and the sun never

Tho picture was not skied; on the
contrary, it was hung on the lino,
nnd In a very fair place���according to
tho opinion of everybody except the
painter. This astonished the artists
at the Bayard Club, who lu Potter's !
absence spoke their minds pretty j
freely about it. They said It
was sixth-rate painting, not art at
all, bad lu color, and bad in drawing
(I admit that, to my uncritical, eyo,
tho violin seemed Incorrect). The
best that could be. said about it wns
thut it had a certain fetching pret-
tlneea but that was not due to Dot- r
tor's skill; with such a model tho
picture couldn't help being
pretty, and because it wa*
pretty, it hnd been hung on tho line.
The Academy was nothing more than
a. shop, and the shopkeepers were
more interested in pleasing the vulgar taste of the public than ln trying
to elevate It, and so ou, and soon.
But that Which astonished (nnd, I
think, exasperated) these brother artists still more, was to hoar that
"L'allegro" (which wns tlie title we
bad given the picture) had beon sold
on the very lirst day of tlie exhibition,
and for fifty guineas���a price whicli
to mo seemed excessive, considering
what capital oleographs can bo
bought lor a pound apiece.
I could not go to the Academy with
my friends on tho opening day, for a.
new operetta had been put up lor rehearsal, nnd that kept me irom eleven
in the morning until tea-time overy
day for a whole week. But on Tuesday in the following week 1 got away
niter a couple oi hours' rehearsal, and
arrived at Burlington House shortly
ulter two.
The galleries wero crowded to excess, but I knew the room in which
"L-ftllegro" WOS hung, and I made ior
that at once, with a kind of presentiment that 1 should und my friends
tliere, this being only their second
visit.   1  waa not mistaken.
1 caught sight oi Potter rirst. He
was planted in tho middle of the
room, with his arms iulded., and his
���t-yes screwed up, criticizing tho skied
pictures. ills strange, uot to say
disreputable, appearance, attracted
some attention, and, indeed, his large
hat, ragged hair, flaming neckerchief', and old velvet jacket were more
than sufficiently conspicuous among
those well-dressed people. Some oi
the simple udks regarded hiin with
uwe and admiration, whilo others
nudged each Other aud laughed; but
ho did not see these, for they were
carom) to laugh behind his back.
Then, in the distance, 1 caught sight
Of Madge in her whito hat and new
dress, looking the most beautiful and
most elegant oi all who there represented beauty and fashion. Kvery one
turned to look ut her, but not ns they
regarded PoUer. She was with Cicely.
Poor Joan had a headache���having
beeu tliere since nine o'clock in the
morning���and was seated alone. Cicely looked tired also ; but nothing
seemed to a.leet Madge; her physique
was perfect, she looked as though
she had but just entered tho room.
With a biush anil a little hesitation,
she took mu to see her portrait. There
were many people be,ore every ono of
the pictures, but it pleased mo to observe that the crowd was thicker belore "L'ullugro." It seemed smaller
thero thua it did iu. the studio, but
it charmed me Just as much as ever���

figure, and ttiu delicate hand poising

It was strange to listen to thu remarks; tiiu people who had come to
enjoy themselves Baying "How lovely 1" and the clever people using up
all the queer terms one reads iu the
newspapers, to express the same thing
or tho reverse. A student was looking CaroluIly into thu work to lind
out what was adimruhu*. but the
utshionable people gave their verdict
at the lirst glance, and those wero
loudest in Judging wlio seumod to
know  least about it.
Wo looked at each other and 6 mi led,
Madge and 1, to hear tho remarks
ol u lady just in irout of US. Hhe was
about lorty, and very iashioiiahly attired, and site addressed hersoll to a
stout gentleman about ten years older
thnn herSOli ; hu I had seen an I entered, giving an order tu a lootmnn
wiiu atood beside an opon carriage, to
which wero harnessod Iwo mogul I-
cuut horses, who pawed tiro road Impatiently, shaking their heads up uud
down, a,id J.ogling thur Silvered bllH.
"Aa I this is it," said the ludy, consulting nor catalogue ; " ' Lu'alle-
gi-u;' P. i\ Goddard, Don't liko it.
Preposterous, 1 call It. The texture,
you know. Look at tho complexion:
is It natural? And thon the tone!
Look ut those eyes; absurdly large.
Onu wants feeling in an. Vou never
sue a gin of that complexion with
black eyes; well, It may suit some
people's taste, but I like consistency."
1 wished with all my heart that sho
would turn and soo Madge, whose
beauty was only faintly represented
in tho picture. But the people wero
too Intent upon tho picture to look
to tho right or left. The stout gentleman who was with tlie tndv, however, and who could only nod and say
"Yos,*' and "AhI" and ���'Hmnl" In
reply, finding himself inconveniently
warm lu the press of the crowd, blew
a loug breath In tho air, and turned
to seo If ho could get a Ilttlo more
room. Ills eyes fell on Madge. After
regarding her for a moment, he
lookod back quickly to the picture.
Perceiving that she was recognized,
Madgo turned away, taking my arm,
aad I   led hor to    tho    seat where
had come ln. We opened tbe door, and      "Very good, Jane;  there    will    be   more thnn that, was at his disposal

Naturally our eyos    turned toward
the crowd iu front of Madge's  port-
rait.    1 Observed that the stout gen- |
tloinan and  his companion  wore    no J
longer tliere.    But 1   caught sight of \
him presently, u little further along
the room, standing In the roar of the '
lady, but looking covertly at Madge,
ft aeemed prSt.y clear that if Ue had \
identified her with the figure In "T/ul* I
legro," he had not communicated his
discovery, for the lady showed no curl-
OSlty  with  regard    to    Madge.      He
oould not keep his eyas off lier, nnd !

When Potter Joined irs I proposed
that we should take some refreshment, and the proposal being acceptable to ull (and to none more than
Putter), we made our way to the
refreshment room, seated ouraelvea nt
a table, and ordered sandwiches.
Madge was next to me,* at the end
of tbo table. While we were thus
seated, the gentleman and lady I have
spoken of above passed us, and going
further up the room, the gentleman
placed a chair for tho lady, the back
towards us, and seated himself opposite to her, so that onco more be
could look at Madge without exciting his companion's attention. I
do not think this was the result of
an accident, for thero was no sign
of surprise on his face as his eyeB
fell upou her. He must have seen
that 1 was watching him, but it
mado no difference, he stared all the
same. As for Madge, she may or may
not have noticed his persistent rudeness; u pretty girt has to endure, and
In time disregards, this kiud of persecution.
I had opportunity to observe him���
too much for my 'taste.     He  was a
ponderous,      plethoric,      middle-aged
uian, with a broad, red face, a   pronounced double chin ; tho back oi Iris
short nock formed a pink ridgo over
his stiff collar. His chiu and upper \
lip  wero shaved;  Uis  whiskers were |
sandy      gray,     and      his   hair,      a
little     darker,     was     turned     with ;
the irons.    One could sec that he was ,
fond of good eating and drinking by
his complexion and    thick  lips,   nnd
bin puffy    cheeks.      He    was    high- :
shouldered, and when he wished    to :
look  round  he put  his hand on  tho
table, and moved the upper part    of
his body with his head    as    though
ho had a stiff neck.   That was   be- i
cause of his   stiff collar, which, de- !
spite tiie form of his throat, was rigid
and straight up    all    round, liko    a ;
young man's.   His hand was fat, with !
short fingers ; ou one sparkled   a pro- j
dlgious largo diamond,    The expres- I
sion of his face was not    repulsive;
on tlie contrary, thore was good humor and joviality In  !t;    his    Ilttlo'
gray eyes twinkled constantly; tliey
I wero  tho slyest, funniest  little   eyes
: Imaginable, yet shrewd and    sharp;
; their activity seemed to compensate
him fur the unwieldlnesa of his body.
He was dressed iu    black  cloth; his
coat fitted him to perfection; his hat
and  gloves seemed  to  bo quite new.
He was  served with    an    expensive
lunch; I saw him leave half a crown
on        the       plate        when the
waiter     brought    his    change.    Hut j
for     these     signs     of    wealth,    and \

Been outside, I should   have said   he I
was  a  common   tradesman  or something of  that sort.
We had  finished    our    sandwiches,
paid for them, and were rising to go,
when a  lady  and gentleman passed
between Madge and  me, and  walled
Up  to  the   table beyond.  The    lady
was young, rather short, and dressed
In  the  height  of fashion;    the gentleman was tall and -straight, his figure waa that of a young man. I only
aaw hla back, for as he camo up thc
stout gentleman rose  with a  hearty
smile, and after  shaking his  friend's
. hand, held it  while he conversed until wo turned to leave the room.    I
know   now  that   he purposely    kept
hint   In   that   position   in  order  that
i Madge  might  leave   unrecognized.
|    l saw no more  of him  that    day,
for we left the exhibition soon after.
I bad come to see Madge's portrait,
' and  that only.   Potter's  vanity  was
1 Miti.ited  for  tho   day;    and   though
Juan made light of hor headache and
Wished  U   stay  (not to shorten our
I pleasure), wo felt it would ho.   well
for her to got out Into tho fresh air
of tho park.
Tho piece wo had been rehearsing
was to be produced the noxt evening.
Madge had a great desire to hear It;
��� she had a constant desire, Indeed, for
nny sort of distraction, and late
events hud unfitted lior moro than
over for serious work ; and as Potter
pleaded other engagements, I undertook to pass the sisters Into the
houso and take them home niter the
performance. Madgo spent the jlay
with a friend, and In tho evening I
met the throe girls with Horace at
the door of thc theatre; and there 1
met them again after the perform-
It was about a quarter to twelve
whon wo reached Sunnyslde Cottage;
to our astonishment, wc saw an unusually brilliant light on tho first
floor. Joan had taken the key of the
door, that the eervaat might not be
kept up, so we let ourselves
ln and wont upstairs, wondering greatly what was tbe
cause of the unusual Illumination;
we could not believe it was Potter,
for ho had spoken of engagements,
and that we knew meant an evening
nt his club. Nevertheless, it woe ho.
"We beard him whistling like a blackbird as we approached the door���
apparently     unconscious    thnt     we

he    continued,
Well,    Horace,

"Pana !"
"Halloa, girls! vou

With this, Potter turned [rom the
canvas, allowed his brows to retract,
and wiped the perspiration from his
forehead with the cuff of his over-
lasting jacket.
"What does this mean 7" asked
"It means, my dear, that I have received a commission Tor a replica of
the thing in tiie academy. No Question oi' price. Of Course I shn'a't let
It go for a miserable fifty pounds, Bay
I let him lime tt for twice that.and
do the Job In a week. Woll, a hundred a week represents a decent income, about five or six thousand a
year, eh ?"
We were all so astonished we could
say nothing at the moment, but presently Cicely observed. In her quiet
"What a pity it Is that you despise
money so, papa dear*"
"O.' course, money is no object to
me!" said Potter cavalierly, and Indeed with some truth, ior there was
generally very little at his disposal;
"but ono naturally likes to have one's
talent  recognized."
" And who wants the othor portrait of mo?" asked Madge, wlio
perhaps saw quite as mueh for flattery of herself as of her father's talent   in   tills  commission.
"Perfect stranger. Called this afternoon Just as I wns going out," replied Potter. " Come in a carriage
���magnificent horses���footman and
coaclimau la livery���sliver mountings to the harness." He gavo a
short whistle to express magnificence
too groat for words.
I cost    au apprehensive glanco at
Madge; she  was  blushing with    delight.     Joan looked at mo signifieent-
ly,  as much    a
turn  her head,
vain than ever.1
"He is Impatient to have tlio picture, so I set to work at once," Potter coutlnued.
" And how long did he stay 7" asked
" About half an hour."
"Then you've taken a good while
to prime your canvas,'* observed
Potter would readily have" said the
word, but Madge would not hear
of It, and declared she would
rather go out as a shop-woman thnn
accept pecuniary help of that kind.
Then he found an engagement for
Cicely, where she got twice as much
as the school paid her, and for lees
than half the amount of work. He
offered to buy as many picture* as
I'otter could produce. When .Joan
Mr. Motley���he was the grew stronger he to*>*s her. with P-ot-
we 11-dressed, common-looking   ter and Madge, In the grand carriage
stood on one Fide, and Mr. Motley Ou
the other, looking at the work.
There wab not the Slightest   doubt
lett in .my   mind as Madge introduced import ly,
man "with ttie puffy red face and tlie   to Richmond, when* they dined at tlie
lively httle gray  eyes I had seen at : Star and Garter.   Tliey couldn't help
the Academy.
"Weil. Holderness, how do vou think
It's coming?' Potter a.-.k,d. after giving me a finger.
The pose was not the some as in
" I/Allegro ;' Madge was seated with
ths viuii'i in hur lap, hur face was
mure in repose. It was loss theatrical, and 1 liked it batter, Whon t
said so, Mr. Motley declared he WOs
glad to hear it.
"And. ni tell you why,- hu added,
bumping himself down in n ohair,
and wiping his moist brow with a
spiendlu Mik handkerchief, which he
kepi constantly in his hand for that
purpose, "There s a bit of rivalry
between rne and my partner llnr-

twinkling as slyly   as ever���"and ho,

always leans towards people whose
peculiarities excite pleasantry. Mr.
Motley knew his defects; and laughed
heartily ut any pleasantry at his expense
lint this change ol feeling excited my
serious apprehensions. For it was obvious that Mr. Motley's persistency
waa not merely tlio result of a determination to get the picture he had
set his mind on having, 1 think we all
��aw���though we kept the matter
tpilet���that it was the model and not
the  portrait which  interested  him.
While Joan was still too weak to
renew her engagement at the school,
Cicely lost hers���the family deciding
to go abroad for three months���so not
one of the family was earning money,
for no pinching could arouse u spirit
when Harlowe told mme he'd bought   of industry in J otter; on the contrary

made up tny mind to cap it by hook or

That's human nature, So without
saying n word to htm, I just looked
out yonr address in thu catalogue, and
that's mm  it camo about, you hoo.'
I saw that Madge was vexed to find
that her portrait had been in request
merely to gratify tlie senseless vanity ot two vulgar brewers. For my
owu part,   1  was dulightud.
"Wow Madgu must hate him,"
thought 1.

" Oh ! a Jolly old fellow "

" Well, nbont fifty. This is the sort

took up a piece of charcoal, and began
a sketch, on the wall, of tho gentleman, beginning at. his feet and working upwards, "There you are," said
he. " Black trouser.3, black frock-coat,

It was plain to see that .she was delighted.
As I walked homo to my lodgings
in Lambeth, my spirits were strangely
depressed. What was thero to dread ?
That Mr. Motley wai*; Infatuated with
Madge���that he was free to marry

for there before  tho door stood    tlie

young lady."
"Oh, Mr. Harlowe has married a

"Not yet," answered Mr. Motley;
"we're both ohl bachelors ut present. But ho will marry this young
lady���if your portrait doesn't upset
the arrangement-���there's beeu a tiff
over it already, I believe." And again
Mr. Motley laughed, his whole body
slinking with merriment. "However,"
he resumed, wiping his brow ouce
more, "she'll got over that���It's to
her advantage. That's human nature."
"I'm afraid," said I, "that you havo

If Mr. Motley was low In our esteem, his partner was still lower; for
what could Mr. Harlowe be like if Mr.
Motley were more to be preferred by
a young lady ?
The color had gone from Madge's

Soon afterwards Mr. Motley left,
saying that lie would drop in again
now and then to see how the picture
was going on, and begging Potter to
spare no pains over It. as money was
no consideration. Potter went downstairs with him, and presently we
heard the carriage door shut and the
horses start off; but Madge did not
go to tho window, as 1 feel sure she
would under other circumstances.
"He's a vulgar old brute!" said
Potter when ho came back,
"Detestable!" said Madge.
I was silent, fearing my friends
might seo that 1 was pleased with
the conclusion  thuy hail  come to.
Potter had no more taste for work
after that, and went out. Madge
took her lesson with patient resolution, which Bhowed that she had once
inure determined to "be a good girl."
and learn tu gut her living like her
Potter's Interest in the work he
hai! undertaken with such energy
flagged and flagged still more as he
went fin with It. The prospect or
getting a largo sum of money was
DOl  enough  fur hlin.
"I nee," said Mr. Mot ley une dny,
"I shnll have to stand over you if I

am to get my picture at all," and
he arranged to como su many thu^s
a week, thus compelling Putter tu
he nl, home to work un these occasions, Nevertheless, the picture made
nu progress, fur tho artist hnd
taken a thorough dislike tu his work,
and frequently had tu paint out uno
day the tiling he had painted In tlio
day before.
I   noticed  that Madge    grow more
tolerant of Mr. Motley as time went
, on.    Sho made excuses  fur his want
nf tn��te.    Ho was a self-made man,
he was uneducated, and had to do with
common and vulgar people.   THspart-
j ner, who must bo a perfectly horrid
I man, helped to make liim  what    he
; wns, and    so on, and    so on.      And
: thon she found thnt he had good qualities as'well as bad���like the rest of
us.    lie was generous, amiable, good-
; hearted.   No one could deny him these
qualities.    When Joan fell lit, lie Rent
her baskets or fruit and flowers, and
, never came without some delicacy of
i the most expensive kind.    Ho hinted
to Potter that he knew how money
i matters stood with the family, nnd
| that If he needed    n    hundred or a
couple  of hundred  pounds,  that, nnd
wheu things were not pleasant, at
home, he found it .impossible to,work
there, and so Idled his time away at
the club. I kuew they must be getting deeper and deeper into debt.
It was like a mockery to seo the
dainty present brought by Mr. Motley,
and know they needed good, wholesome, substantial food Oue can't dine
on Strusburg plow and cuviare, and
such things.
Poor Madge felt her position keenly.
No oue could have practised moro
���strenuously than she at this time;
but she was still far from being' even
a mediocre player. Again she said,
"I am worse than good for nothing 1"
I saw that Mr. Motley was infatuated with her now���if he had not U-en
from the very first time he looked at
her. Every day he brought her or
sent her a bouquet. I remembered
what he said, "I havo had a good
deal to do with human nature. If I
didn't know its weaknesses I bhould
not have the position I now hold."
And I felt sure that he was just biding
: his time���waiting till tlie affairs of
: tliis family got to* their worst to ns*
Madge to be his Wile. His knowledge
of human nature was keen enough to
enable him to see iuto tho depths of
her too open heart.
Now, I felt that If she married him
she would do a Wrong thing, ami that
' she would live to bitterly repent It.
For despite Mr. Motley's good qualities, he was undeniably coarse and
vulgar, whereas her tastes were delicate and refined.
I know that she had no real r-spect
for him. On the .Other hand, I felt sure
that she had an affection for inc. und
respect us .well.'  My tastes were as
good as hers, my   affection* for.  her
i was unbounded.  I had a few hundreds
put by, and a very fair engagement
: bringing mu in  money.   I was' in   a
I position to marry und help her family; and so, feeling that though   her
marriage With me would lie ridiculous
In tho oyos of tho world   whu   only
i Judge by    appearances, It    would at
Uenst be less productive of futuro un-
happlness than hor marriage with Mr.
Motley.   I    took    Potter    aside   ouo
night at the club, told him my position, antl    as/ted his    permission    to
speak to Madge on the subject.
"All right, old man," said he, w.tth
a careless laugh; " there's no harm in
Tho next day I put on my best suit
aud wont ta Sunnyslde at an hour
when I knew she would bu at home.
I opened tho studio door without her
seeing ur hearing me; she was going
through her exercises, n*id I was
touched with tho look of care and
pained anxiety In her young, lovely
face. She, seemed tu be striving to
overcome despondency.
When she caught sight oT me, she
laid down hor violin and met mu with
a bright open smile, and both hands
held out. She was pleased to see me.
My heart rose.
"Oh, I am so glad you have come
early !" she cried. "I cannot get on
with that rltornello. Now you will
show me. Why, I declare yuu have
forgotten your violin."
'1 have not come to teach this morning," said I,   "Did not your lather tell

"Oil, yes," she said quietly, the amile
dying suddenly as she seated herseli ;
"yes, ho told me; but I-I "
"Vou forgot all about It," snid I ;
"that is whinle 1 thought, and II I Mid

"I wish you wouldn't speak or It,
