nor was ihe teaching calculated to interest her. Still she gathered seme information, especially on the Mibjects
which took her fancy.
About two .veal's before the bcitimilng
of this narrative, her uncle died into.*
late, and she became tbe owner of con-
siileroble wealth.
Edilh herself knew .little or. nbthin?

inss' -he 'hail contrived to get. even out
"f the miserable two hundred a year he
had- so I ing manipulated. To find n
suitable (?) husband for his ward-before
ihe reached the independence of majority, was the object nearest his heart,
and, as Edith approached eighteen, h's
feverish unrest drove him to the expedient we have recorded.
It was a trial to Edith lo part with
Mr* Miles, who, though somewhat belter, physically, was terribly depressed in
spirit; and it was :also something of a
lrhs?' to go to Mrs. AViningotu's. but a
trie] not. timuised with pleasure.
Though all her life a recluse, Kdi.h
Vlrtnn was not shy;' 6he was nn'tiu'iilly

brougham, which, lo her surprise, hud

greet her with great cordiality. ."It- is
really very good of Mr. Tilly to trust

low, easy-chair. "Vou aro looking plfe
nnd tired; I am sure you must be moped
to death."
"Vou are very, very kind to nsk nie

different from'you that I may be the
some, but—"
"I shall turn yon out wilh inexorable

such a catastrophe! Now, yon mu>it

"Tos, I did cry n little." sa'd Edith,

Of course Muitland'c.usentcd.
It was a soft clpnr, delicious night,
and after a pleasant dinner, nnd miioh
lively talk they strolled about the gardens; Beaton.escorting A:iviau;. Lady
Mary, somewhat to Maitlnnd's surprise,
pairing off with the Chinaman; while he
himself fell to Mrs. Winlngton's Bhare.
How beautiful she looked in the moonlight' or- when>'her lnrgq^parklinseyes
iglittercjl in the gjenip ot th,e,hijbi)s! How
brightly she talked! What subtle touches
of tenderness sounded through her lighter lone!—nnd yet Maitland was unusually
indifferent. His imgluntion would sCrny
nwny after Edith A'ivian and the .mian
who hod appropriated her. AVus he
teaching her to love h'm with the finished
art of long experience?—and when he bad
won her heart and annexed her money,
jiow would he repay her?
., The sense of profouadest pity, of guilt
SeVn—for did not his kuowledge of the
scheme make him nd' nccdrnplice?—oppressed him, and He wes powerless to as-
dit her. She was so defenseless, so
friendless! Why, 'it would be better for
her to. marry him. He would be n kind ami

frt'^iiingly, like the breeze from A: field
of ncw-niown l)ay over the heated at-
'mos»phcT-e of a highly perfumed conscrvn-
■ Mrs. Winington's voice recalled him.
"9fonr judgment was the right one,"
ehoisvas saying. "Your little protegee is
really yp™ nice, rjaturalljc a ladj', but
so;,$rigirtSnly^erdeo.ved,'she '^oes «ot
eeeai to take Leslie's love-making in and.
jfc is really most persevering.' I think if
she wore a little responsive he would
grow quite fond.of her. Bea-lly men are
so accustomed to be made love to now
that"—she paused.
■ "It must be rather on agreeable change
to do the lovemaking one's self," said
Mnitland, laughing.
. "To men like you yes!—but, joking
apart, I am really interested in Miss
Arivjan. I never imagined I could like
riny other girl so much! She Is not stupid,
by any menus, but so strangely unccm-
vc-ni-ional! Her genuine admiration for
me is very amusing, nnd extremely flattering. 1 wish Leslie could get on with,

must marry- him! Ohl'-1—interrupting
tjerself—"he-re they are." The separated
party had drifted, together, at the il-

"DNirest Jean," said Lady Mary, in
an aside quite audible to Maitland. "I

both felt that it was the belter part.

The days took to themselves wings-
wings of pleasure, the less self-indulgent
because refined—and Hew away with not
surprising rapidity. Airs. AVinington was
supremely content. It was no longer
uilhcult to attract Jack Maitland to her
house. He was ready to come on the
slightest provocation. The slow-moving
bill on which he so long waited had at
lust been before the committee; he had
given his evidence and was free to return
to his native wilds—yet he lingered.
True, he was slill calm and undemon-
strnlive but Mrs. AVinington knew h'm
In the days when he had not acquired
his present self-mastery, and could not
believe that the old lire which once
burned so strongly was quite extinguished or exhausted, ond • she found nn absorbing interest ill tho endeavor to rekindle Hie flame. Never had she been si
generally kind and considarate. Edith
thought her an angel disguised in a
fe.nloflnbie exterior. Her brother rejoiced iu the spell of sunshine, though
lip had a shrewd idea why "Jean!, was
so deucedly aiiue.ble."
AA'hile Alnitlniid found his imagination

able lips; and the sweet, hnlf-plnyful,
half-tender expressions that fell' from
them, oilier thought., other imagining*
replaced these. Yet, though he could not
tear himself'away, he was miserable, tin-
ensy, selr-i'cjpronthful. He watched with

unconscious prize. He saw too clearly

and expeditions organized by Airs. Winington, Mnitland found opportunities for
conversation, fod're frequently thnn Airs.'
AYiuiiigton noticed nnd these coniii-med
him in his idea that Edith's was no common nature nor wns her gentleness- in
any way weak.
There- was something touching in the
quiet preference she unconsciously showed him and which completed her attric;
tion. He felt, without the slightest disrespect to her, that hnd he a. fair field

her happier than Leslie Beaton ever

looking down. .'I feci-in nn'odd way that

aiforded him nn excuse for a tcte-nteto,

Many amusing stories are told of
the great formality blended %vith a humorous briisi|iic'iiess nnd independence
which characterized early Revolutionary days., An incident of camp life is
related by the author of "Romance nnd
Realism of the Southern Gulf Coast."
In 1T08 the fffst United States troop,
that came down the Mississippi were
quartered nt Fort Adams. General
Wilkinson, Colonel Homtrnmck, Major
Butler, Captain Green and other officers wore merry over their punch one
night, and the general, by some accident, got his cue burned off. Angry
nt tbe laugh which followed his mishap, he next day issued nn order forbidding any officer to appear with a
Cue. Obedient to orders, nil the officers but Alajor Butler cut off their
I "The vain old prig!" said the major.
5'I'11 see him bunged before I cut off
niy cue to gratify him!" And bo boldly
appeared without changing tho style of
till halrcTrcssiug.
The major wns pnt under arrest, but
he declared obstinately thnt he would
spend tho rest of his life In prison before he would comply with such a silly
command. Soon afterward be %vas taken very ill, njul, realizing that he was
at the point of death, he gave Instructions for his burial, which he knew
would bo witnessed by the whole command.
"Bore a hole," snld he, "through the
bottom of my'coffin, right under my
head, and let tny cue come through It,
Hint tlie old general may see that even
when dead I refuse to obey his order."

It I. Driven by llcr Pumps, Which
Force Jet. Into Water.
A novelty in tho construction of marine craft is shown In n recent patent
{rant covering the design of a boat
propelled and steered by jets of water.
Instead of engines to drive screws and
propellers pumps aro employed and
Ihe boat driven by tbo action of Jots of
water taken In'at the bow and ejected
it tho stern.
' These pumps are suitably located
tvlthln the hold of the vessel, and each
Is provided with an lntnUe tube, which
runs furwardly to a point hear tlie bow
it the vessel, where there nre suitable
jponings through which tlie pipes may
receive the water, the said openings of
tourse being arranged below the witter
line. The Inlet ports at the ends of
these pipes are controlled by valves
jpcrated from some convenient point.
Extending from each of the pumps is
a tube which is curved so as to find an
opening at the side of tho vessel near
the forward part thereof, the outlet
portion of the tube being directed for-
wardly. Thus water which Is forced
through the tube will be so directed as
to propel tho bout rearwardly, as In
backing. Another pipe also extends
renrwnrdly from each pump, and this
pipe is preferably divided Into two
branches. Ono branch extends out-,
wardly through tbe side of tho vessel
it a point near tbo bow, while Ibc other extends, roarwardly in the vessel a
considerable distance, finding nn outlet near tho stern of the boat, and jets
Issuing from there will propel the boat
forward. Other openings nt tho side
tnd stern have the effect of changing
the course of the craft. In experimenting with a boat of this character It was
demonstrated that she could be turned
In her own lengtli, which Is an achieve-
ment of some importance.
Webster's Opinion of Himself.
A lady of one of the old families living near Boston related to a writer the
other day an anecdote of Daniel Webster which has never boon in print before. This lady happened to bo one of
a few friends who went with Mr. Webster to the hall whore hung on exhibition previous to lis final location In
Faneull hall Mr. llealy's now famous
painting representing Webster making
his reply to llnyne. "Mr. Webster,"
said the lady, "was very feeble and
was led In by the artist. Ascendiug tho
plntform which, commanded' a view of
the picture, Webster looked at It for
soma mlnuteB, making some pleasant
observations to bis friends, respecting
tho different senators and the various
points of Interest on the canvas. This
portrait ond that were spoken of and
even the pages recognized. Finally,
turning to go, Mr. Webster quietly remarked, 'And as for that man standing
there In the center—well, l'vo seen better looking men In my day than he.' "

A Troublesome Ant.
In the state of Colombia there is a
large ant (Attn ccphalotcs) which
censes'a great deal of Injury to plantations. It attacks nnd carries off indiscriminately all kinds of foliage, and
no sort of vegetation seems to come
amiss to it. The quantity of foliago
enrrled off by these nnts Is Immense.
A naturalist recently Investigated tlie
uses to which tlie ants put this mass
of vegotnblo matter, and he ascertained thnt they employ It to make hotbeds, upon which their eggs are deposited to be hatched by tbo heat produced
by the fermentation of the leaves. Tho
ants do not eat these portions for food,
and the larvm nre fed upon a carefully
selected diet. Once the brood is hatched, the ants clear nway the hotbed, carrying out of their nest all the decomposed vegetable matter. This Is thrown
out in heaps apart, and In tbo largo ant
hills these heaps will contain bushels
nml upward.

The  Amble  Lnnn;anu;e.
There is no language more poetical
than tlio Arabic language, where
suow Is called "hair of the tnountniu"
and the rainbow is "bride of the rain."
licit mullet ts "the sultnn of fishes,"
maidenhair fern is translated by "little
cane of the well." ordinary Arabic
words show nn extraordinary gift of
description. The word for secretly
means literally "under tho matting"
nnd never is expressed thus: "When
the charcoal takes root nnd tho salt
buds." Uncontrolled ascendency of Imagination marks the Arab and endows
his nature with n fnseinntlon all Its
own. An outdoor life is his heritage,
and the things of nature nro a part of
himself. Spring he calls "grass;" summer Is "gleaning;" autumn is "fruit;"
winter is "raiuy."
. A Queer Police ForcS.
The policemen In Haiti are pfiitl by
results. Thoy get capitation fees for
all the arrests they make. As they
come from the worst class of tho population and are under uo discipline, It
follows that a man Is very liable to be
arrested In Haiti unless he Is willing
to pay tbe policeman more than the
capitation fee, As this fee ,1s only 15
cents, tbe price of freedom Is not prohibitive.
If a man objects to paying the fee
and says he would rather go before the
judge the policeman soon convinces
him of tho unpleasantness of arrest
with n thick cluB.

night a. piece of-flannel should be applied. This flnpnel should be saturated in brine and then wrapped around
the affected joint or joints. The .flannel should then bo covered with a rubber -or oil silk bandage. ■ Both should
be kept on all night.

Various    Improvements   Thai    Hnvo

the ships' anchors, in general used gp
to the beginning of flic ln,st ceultiry
consisted ot ti long, round iron shank,
having two fcomparativcly "short,.
Straight alios or-fluk-ov inclined ttf the"

and meeting it in. n somewhat sharp'
point nt the ,«iownr In large anchors
the bulky WOodeii Block was built up
of several pieces, hooped together, .the
whole' tapering Outward to the e'iids,
especially on tbe'aft or entile side.
■iAbout the beginning- of the lrist eeii-
tury-iicclerk In-stbe Plyinohtli naval
yard, -I'ering by. name, suggested certain improvements, the-most important
of which was making the nrms.curved
instead ot straight. .At first sight this
simple change may seem of little'vnliid,
btit consideration'will show that'this Is
not tlie case. The holding power'df nn
anchor depends on two prlnelpsl oon-
dltiouBrr-nnmely, the extent-, of'.useful
holding surface nud the amount of
vertical penetration. Tlie.JaJter quality, is peeessary on account of the nature of ordinary sea bottoms, the sir-
face layers of which arc generally less
tenaciousr and resisting than is tlip
ground a short distance below.
Iu the year 1831 chain cables began
to supersede the hempin cues, with
the result that tbo long simnked anchors hitherto in vogue were no longer
necessary, and anchors with shorter
shanks and with heavier and stronger"
crowns gradually enwo into use. In
consequence of these chnngeg a, commission was appointed In tho-yeur 1838
to Inquire Into the.holdlng power .of, anchors, and a principal result of Its labors wns the adoption of tho so called
admiralty pattern, anchor, which continued to bq used in the navy' up to the
yenr'lfcHiO.   The Invention of tho steam
hammer in 1812 made the welding of j eosetcnich, if ncrriooted, win develop ln-
heavy masses ot iron a tfotripnratively
easy nud reliable, process, so that from
this time onward tho strength of anchors fully kept pace with that of tlie
chain cables which had come into general use.
A number or patents-for anchors
were taken out prior to the great et-'
blbltion of 1851, and, public attention
having been called 16 the mod!ehy there
shown, In tho-follovylng year a commit'
tec was appointed by tbe admiralty to
report on the qualifications' of anchors
of tbe,varlous kinds. Practical trials
were then instituted! nnd as a result
Trotinan's anchor took the highest
place, Itodger's anchor being second
on tho list. Some of tbe tests to which
the alienors were submitted were' of
doubtful value, sneh, for Instance; as
"facility for Bwceplng." Nowadays,
however, at all events for deep ships
lu shallow harbors, it Is considered an
advantage for an anchor to offer n3 "t-
tlo obstruction as possible nbove the
ground.—Science. Sittings.

for wa know the morrow will come

When we purl with a clasping hand
at night,
From the frl.nd we love, we feel regret
And the bright warm heart takes
with It the light.
And joy of our own hearth stone

This regret Is not a hopeless pain
For we know the friend will come
This is good-night.
When w. leave the shore that has

When we turn our longing sight

Our hearts with memorlea of sorrow
and mirth,
The throbs of expectation are attll

For a long last look In our paradise,
This Is good-bye.
When a soul la called from the busy

To   tread   the   paths   of an untlred

Who   has   filled  our life   with Joy

When   we   watch   the   waning light

The Convenient Light is the
Electric Light
Yon have simply to touch the button vnd yonr office and room is brilliantly
lighted, falling over chairs; no matches; no nneleanliness; no danger.
Electrio lights can be made portable, so that you can hang them over your
dresser or shaving mirror, at the head of your bed, eto., and any desired
candle-power may be obtained.
It is a Beautifying Light
Under its clear rays, faces and objects do not have that pallid, dull appeaf-
vnee that I. caused by other lights; on tbe contrary, it show, off everything to the best a dvantage. As musio adds to the beauty of a voice, so
does the electric light 011 hance the beauty of a face, the brightness Of a
smile and the sparkle of the eyes.
IT HAS NO FLAME—it emits no unhealthy fumes—it consumes on
oxygen and does not vitiate the air— therefore it does not oanse 01 aggravate asthma or other pulmonary diseases. It does not leak, ignite or
explode. It will not kill plants or ruin wallpaper or furnishings. It is
everything that is best as a light. Up-to-date establishment, and people
of refinement use it.
