Al-ho' the weather was so stormy  on Xmas night it did not prevent a  number of parents and visi'ors attending   the Xmas entertainments  given  at the   St. George's Presbyterian     and    Methodist   Sunday  Schools.    No efforts had been spared by the pastors and ladies of the  churches to make their entertainments a success:.    The Xmas trees  were beautifully decorated and were  loaded /with good things for the little ones.    There was an interesting  musical   programme    during    the  evening and recitations by the children   of   the   Presbyterian   Church  which was followed  by the distribution of gifts, while the little opes  of Grace Methodist Sunday School  treated their friends to a rendition  of the Libretto. "The Story of the  Star," after which, the Xmas tree  which   was   the   centre ofr attraction  was divested   of  its  burden.  Mrs Gillespie who had chargeof the  Libretto was complimented for the  success'of her work done in connection with the evening's entertainment. f  ,  I'M  V-      i  SPELLING  When   tbe  school   board   of  district  ���������No. 5,  which included  tlie  hamlet of  Bebee's Corners, announced that they  ������had' engaged  a < schoolma'am   for the  winter term instead of a schoolmaster,  , -there was much wonderhig among the  '   farmhouses as to how she would manage thiugs.    For three successive winters the schoolmaster had been, thrashed by a gang of had boy's, led by hulk-  Sng Joa Whitman, and folks*predicted  that the new teacher would be picked  up.   carried ,out  and   dropped   into   a  snowdrift the first day.  ,   Seth Thomas, a young farmer, drove  over to  the'railroad   station  to   meet  Miss Baker when her school was ready  to'open, and his surprise was reflected  on all .sides.    She was a slip of a girl,  -Jess than  twenty years old  and  shy,  and this was her first school.   She' had  taken 1t because her- mother was an  invalid and her father had  failed in  ���������business, but that came out afterward.  , That a good looking, refined young/wo-  .man(like   Miss   Baker should   take  a  country school" at .$25 a months instead  of,getting married was a mystery no������  one could .solve.^     .     ���������    - ..  Seth Thomas' wastwenty-three years,  ���������old, and he also/was shy.* During the  three mile drive the pair did  not' exchange n  hundred' words.     Setb  was  '-awed  and   scared  by. tlie  girl's  good  1 looks, and she was frightened at coming among strangers.    She was driven  4o   the   Carsons',   where  she .was' to  -board, and ,she saw no more,of Seth  for  a. fortnight. rt  Her   only   remem-  'brance of him was that ho had a plain,  good .natured_ face , and* a', pleasant  voice.     . ,'..'"'  , During-this-fortnight Bob' Graham  (walked home with' her from school on  ���������several occasions-. ;Tim Taylor made  '"���������two calls at tlie'Carsons', Tom Lane  -drove her to school one stormy morning, and Charley Saunders, acknowledged, the \riost-stylish' young farmer,  ���������for five miles around, escorted- her" to  ���������evening church, services and home-  ���������agaiii. & Her 'school .had 'started off  bravely, and she bad bo idea that it  was all owing",to the bashful Seth. He  had been afraid to calIcon ber. but he  wasn't afraid 'to meet Joe Whitman,  and his crott'd the day before, school  opened and to say. to them: . v A .-  , "Look herev now." , You ' boys have  tgot to behave -yourselves/this winter.  snowdrift!  ".The' sclioolma'nm would have taken  Seth. by the hand and thanked him. but  when he had concluded tlie performance he drove away without a look toward the school house. Then the girl's  intuition told -her that the awkward  Setb was an admirer who felt himself  snubbed, and for the next four weeks  she hoped he might'call on ber or that  they might meet elsewhere and have  r nn explanation. He avoided her, however, though, .if*, he had but known it,  she gave more thought to him than to  all the others.  There was_alwnvs a midwinter snell-  LAg  school  at the  Corners.   Teachep-  and pupils of other schools were inviv  ed, and the victor of the contest /was  regarded   as   the   smartest   thing  oil I  earth.

That shorthand was used in the ancient world is well known, but our information is still scanty, and any addition is welcome. It may therefore  bo worth knowing that there is in the  Armenian "Acts of St. Callistratus".  a reference to the employment of stenography. A translation of this is included in Mr. V. C. Conybeare's "Armenian Apology and Acts-of-Apollo-  nius and Other Monuments of Early  Christianity." ' The' account of Callistratus was probably written in .the  first half of the fourth century. Tt includes several long addresses of Callistratus,to hiscfelIow soldiers in explanation of' the mysteries of the new  faith for which he and forty-nine of  his comrades became martyrs.' Per-.-  haps with a view to giving them .authority as verbatim reports, the. compiler says: ,       ;  "But there was a certain scribe .of  the law court who was near to the  prison,'and he listened to lh<* discourse  of Callistratus, and he wrote it down  in shorthand on paper and gave' it to  us. ancl we set in order with all accuracy the record and outline of his  thought."  Thackeray's Facial  Appearance.  In 1849 or 1S;jO Charlotte Bronte  wrote of.Thackeray: "To me the broad  brow seems '.to express intellect. Certain lines about the nose und cheek betray the satirist and the cynic; the  mouth indicates a. childlike simplicity,  perhaps even a degree of irresoluteness  in consistency���������weakness, in short, but  a weakness not unatuiable." And Mr.  Motley,, writing to his wife in 1S58,  said: 'T believe you have never seen  Thackeray. He has the appearance of  a colossal infant���������smooth, white, shining, ringlety hair, flaxen, alas, with advancing years; a roundish face with a  little dab of a nose, upon which it is a  perpetual wonder how he keeps his  spectacles."     ;  This broken nose was always a source  of amusement to Thackeray himself.  He caricatured it in his drawing, he  frequently alluded to it iu his speech  and in his letters, and he was fond of  repeating Douglas Jerrold's remark to  him when he was to'stand as godfather  to a friend's sou.

"I heard Mr. Bolts making  tbe engagement for his nifi:i for late  this evening, and the name he used  was that of a gentleman of my acquaintance.- a certain Mr. Thomas  Harding- All you havo to do is to go  ji little early. Then when the senator  has told you all you want to know,  why, you just say something a little  disagreeable, so that when the real  Star man comes Cousin John will be  furious and won't see him. I'm  ���������.-.shamed of you to lack a bit of inven-  k'^^^^'U^^^^^^^^^^lR^^^^Vrcr^'kil  "We might kidnap him!"  '( "Don't be frivolous."   She drew her  dark brows and thought intently.  "I don't understand," she complained.  "You want this report for your own  paper, don't you?  I chance to have inside information that you���������that is, the  ' Star���������will have it exclusively.  Doesn't  that suit you 7"  The young man turned his back to  '   the room full of chattering people and  put his broad shoulders between  her  ��������� telltale young face and prying eyes.  ' Their  conversation  was  being ,held  precariously  at a  crowded' afternoon  tea. ,'  "Look here, girlie," he said, "it's just  like this: Yesterday I was city man on  tho Star, with a good "chance of promotion. I felt I had something" to offer  the girl I love. Today " the Record  might take me if I went to them with  a scoop in my hand���������and 'they're not  ' making a- living for the men they already have." , ������ ,  "Oh,  Tom,"   cried''the .girl,' with 'a  note of keen distress.in her .carefully  '    suppressed voice, "you've not lost your  position!   How was it?"      ... ,  The    young    fellow    nodded.    "It's  '   'BettsV'   he  returned   gloomily.   /'You  know what Bctts is.   I was,all right  ��������� with him' till. Mr. Markham noticed my  work and (as I've been informed by a  man on the inside), told Betts to push  me as fast as possible, for he thought  I'd make a good chief in my depart-  -   ment.   Betts won't keep a man on the  staff who is a possible rival.  He called  ine  into   hisr private  room   yesterday  morning and gave me an order which  he knew I'd refuse to execute. ,Wlicn 1  did so, he worked himself into a1 rage  and discharged mo.' Well, I said some  ,_..things  an  assistant  can't say  to   his  chief .before ,the discharge came. Then  . ' I asked to be allowed to leave at' once���������,  and here Lam.  I've acted the fool.  I'm,  riot fit to be. trusted with your��������� future."'  dear.  I"��������� His voice broke a little and.  sank into silence. ,    , .  "You've,done just as 'I would have  you'do," the girl returned loyally, "and  '-' now-;if'you're off the"'Star and'notion  \ 'the/Record how would this cotton mill  -   scoop'affect you?"      ,      "  "It "would square me with Bctts if 1  '< could beat him omit, and if I could take  it to the Record it would assure me a  place  there.    But what's the  use  cf  talking?    I've tried all I- know, and 1  can't get a word of the story."  '     "If I thought it would be just right,"  . she murmured.   "Tom," looking at h'.m  anxiously,   "you're   very   sure  nobody  will lose money by it if the ,Star gets  left on this?"  "Oh, you mean outsiders!' I'm telling-  yon the truth'when I say it won't make  any difference whatever, financially, fo  anybody if the Record gets a scoop ou.  this cotton mill business and publishes  , the fact first that Senator Morgan is in  town looking for a site for the buildings."  "All right," said the girl, laughing a  little. "You see, he's mother's cousin,  * and of course we went to tho hotel to  see him when he first camo in yesterday morning. While we were there  your Mr. Betts of the Star came up..  ,Ho and Senator Morgan were in school  together and are old friends.  "Mr. Betts is going down to Birmingham to attend a land sale, but I heard  the senator promise him that he would  not allow his name to be put on the hotel register nor permit any of the Record folks to find out that he was here:  "Mr. Betts was to send a reliable man  around from the Star the next day-  why, that's today, Tom. It's this very  evening! And the senator was going  to give him the details of the colioa  mill scheme, with the names of all the  eastern stockholders and. if he decides  upon it, the exact location of the mill."  "Isn't that enough to make angels  weep?" groaned Tom Harding.  "Poor Tom!" said the girl. "You  look positively thin. Have a little more  oyvtor pate. You'd feel amiably disponed toward anybody who would help  you out on this, wouldn't you?''  "I'd lovo 'em for life. Well. I reckon  I can tear down to the Record ot'ice  and make the longest item I can out of  the fact that 1 do know Senator Morgan is hero and that his plans are coming on all right Thoy don't even know  that much."  "Dear me!" confided the girl to her  fan.    "Men are stupid creatures!"  "But women aren't." said Harding  gayly. "I know you've got a scheme  in that pretty little head of yours."  tion like that.  "Great Scot!" murmured Harding in  awe. "You are worth any two men on  the staff! Say. you ouuht to be a newspaper man's wife, do you know it?"  "1 believe you said something like  that to me before, and I have- taken (he  matter under advisement. If I find a  newspaper man that's worth having,  why, well"��������� f  She laughed saucily as she rose. '  * * * ������ * r ������  When Harding's card went up to the  senator, it found that gentleman seated at a lug des!; witli a pile of paners'  before him. ' "I'm jrlad that fellow's  come.',' he said., "I have the stuff  ready for him, and I want to get it off  :uy hands.''  Harding was most affably received.  .The full details and complete plans  were furnished him, together with the  architect's sketch of the proposed mill  and a photograph of the senator for  illustrative purposes. '   ,,  * As' ho rose to go. with his bundle of  documents and well tilled notebook in  -hand,"he said: "By'tho way, senator,  wasn't" j*our name recently connected  with" some-sort of a little story���������er���������  scandal,, L suppose .straitlaced people  would call it? It would add spieo to  "an otherwise bald "and "uninteresting  'narrative' if you'd let'ine ring that:in.  Don't you think so?"  The senator sat" at- his  looked at his " interlocutory aghast,  "Young man," he'thundered, "put���������  those���������papers���������down!"  "Oh,' no," .said-Harding-; "the Star  wants these papers," -which was.-certainly the truth, "and as for the other  business, why. you may be a deacon  from Deaconville for what I know. All  sorts of things go into the papers."  .The senator had risen and,was coming toward him'"as he retreated. "Yo'j  tell Mr. Betts for me,", he roared, "that  if he don't tire y,ou I'll save him the  trouble   by   wringing   your   neck- for  desl-Aand  your  ������������������ Then  Tom Harding had an, inspira  tion. ~  "See   here,  "you're mad now.  senator," he said.  'Oh, yes,, you are.  I.'can seo it. though you dissemble it so  'beautifully: J'l'n go"���������tho senator was  coming uncomfortably near, just then���������  "but I'll be back in about half,an hour,  when you've had time to cool down."  What' the senator said when the card  of the genuine Star reporter was carried'up to him,just twenty minutes later has become legend and story In that  hotel.'  -  The bellboys gathered cin a delighted  'cordon-to hear him swear as���������he sent  the. message that if that idiot\ ever  came back there again or sent anybody  else from the paper he'd kiiMiim.  The Star people continued /to send  men to interview the senator, who appeared .to them to be demoniacally possessed. Failing to get even a glimpse  of him, though they could hear tho  sound of his unutterable roarings down  the corridor, they not unnaturally gathered the impression���������indeed tho impression was abroad pretty generally then  ���������that the senator had been wined and  dined rather too extensively, and as  Betts, who would have saved them that'  crowning folly, was absent they hinted  as much in the'next morning's issue of  the paper.    -  It was on this same morning that the  Record brought out a complete illustrated history of Senator Morgan's  cotton mill deal and a taking little  biography and interview with the senator himself. *  The cotton mill meant salvation to  the overboomed little southern town,  and the Record's scoop in giving the  first full and authoritative account of  its location did several things. It gave  the Recbrd a standing long coveted and  worked for. It gave Tom Harding a  secure position on the Record staff and  incidentally placed him where he felt  able to marry.  Nobody but "Tom" Harding and Tom  Harding's wife knows just how the  scoop came about ���������well, no one'but  Senator Morgan, perhaps, for he, being  related, as you remember, to Tom  Harding's wife's mother, sent the-'bride  for a wedding present a very pretty  diamond star and a note, in which he  made much jocular use of the word,  suggesting, among other things, -that  he believed she was certainly getting  a "star" husband.

In which form the disease will make  its appearance can never be predicted  with certainty."  A  HARD HANDICAP.  Every Man Has His Master.  No man is completely free. Every  man has his master. The supremest  despot is a thrall, for there is somebody whom he fears and must court.  If he does not dread the plebs, be  dreads the patricians; if he is not  afraid of the people, he is afraid of. the  army with which he cows the people:  if there is danger in neither the rabble  nor the pretoria'n guard, there is a minister: a major domo. a foreign nation,  ,a jester, a satirist, a dynamiter or a  woman who worries and frightens bim  and hi a measure controls his,actions.  Put two human beings together, and  each will acquire mastery in some respect over the other. ,Xhe human race  is a social body. Men,are Interdependent. Absolute freedom and splendid  isolation are alike impossible! Every  o\\&- must obey orders or suffer.���������San  I'Ynneiscn Hulletin.

"One reason why the smallpox germ  is so hard" to conquer is that he can assume so many different forms." says  C. l'\ Scott in Ainslce's. "He can  transform himself from Dr. Jckyll Into  Mr. Hyde and into two other distinct  persons at will. One can never tell  which metamorphosis he may assume.  As Mr. Hyde, he is known to the medical profession as Hemorrhagic, a  murderous, deadly fellow that covers  his antagonist with wounds that bleed  so copiously the afflicted one rarely  survives more than a few..hours, or, at  most, a few days. In one of his other  characters he bears the name of Confluent, as which he raises poisonous  welts on the skin of the victim very  thickly, and they have a tendency to  coalesce. In this character he inflicts  wounds more painful, but less fatal.  Tlie Discrete''type manifests himself  in fewer papules and is less vigorous  in his assaults.

How   Plants   Grow.  Photographs of growing plants show  some marvelous results, especially  among the climbers. The young stems  are said to move in a succession of irregular circular or elliptical curves,:  which vary in every direction. These  movements are due to the irregular  growth in various parts of the stem.  Extensive Advertising:.  No street in the world can boast of  so many advertisements as Broadway,  New York.
