I  It   Was Too   Nice   For   Practica  t Purposes:  ��������� /���������*���������      *���������*      "      ������������������  . '"It's, a troublesome thing- to have, is  a0 conscience abnormally developed,"  ruminated Olivia. "Nextito being com-  monsensible or trying to be- dignified  there's nothing so likely to render one  ridiculous and ��������� unpopular. I almost  wish it was possible to have one's conscience shaved like a beard, or.'amputated like a corn, or pulled out like a  defective tooth. Personally, I'm rather tired of being a perpetual slave to  the thing called conscience." "  '  '"What's,the matter now?" I queried.  You see, I knew Olivia very well���������have  known her since she was an infant in  arms. In- fact���������and I could read the  signs of her mental unrest. I knew she  had been "opening her mouth and putting her foot into it" once more, as ������the  Irishman said. Olivia is rather unfor-  tunate that, way always: ;If there's  any tongue * trouble going anywhere,  she's pretty sure to pick It up somehow or other.  "Oh, it's nothing new���������at least not  more than a half a dozen new brain  pangs or conscience pains,", she replied.  "I hare merely been reflecting���������rather  sadly���������upon the dolefulness of possessing a conscience in good working order  when such an article is distinctly and  decidedly out of fashion and when one  doesn't know how to control it in the  least."  A dear little girl Is Olivia, all the(  more lovable, perhaps, because of the  inconsequence which is naturally hers.  She "rambles on sweetly," as her sister says of her when conversing with  her intimates���������just thinking aloud. . I  knew I.should get to-.the bottom of her  latest trouble presently if only I didn't  interrupt and seDd her off on another  track at a tangent, so I merely smiled  sympathetically and waited in silence.  "When I was a child," she sighed  presently, "I don't believe I was a bit  popular, although I think most people  liked me. And I know I didn't have  half tbe fun some of the other girls  did, and all because my conscience was  'bloated,' as my older brother said.  "I never left my Sunday school lesson unearned or my music lesson nn-  practiced because I wanted to go violet  hunting or coasting Saturday afternoon.", she continued, with a sigh  'I  was too conscientious for that. And I  always owned up to tho mischief I'd  done and refused to share in tbe trilling consequences of the mischief I  hadn't done for the very same reason.  When I became a trifle older, I passed  low in many nn examination because I  wouldn't make use of borrowed language or .look at my books the-very last  thing. A little later I earned unpopularity among my fellows because I  never would say I was glad to see any  one when I could not say so honestly."  Apd now���������  "And the worst of it all is that 1  don't believe I ever was or ever will  be one. bit the better for all these conscience troubles." was the commence  ment of the next "ramble." for the'  sake of which she left the previous one  unfinished. "As a little child worrying  over ray Sunday school lesson I cer-  taini'y sinned just as much on the side  of spiritual pride and childish 'puffed-  upedness' as I ' would have done on  the grounds of neglect of duty had 1  enjoyed my Saturday afternoons as the  other children did. It is an open question, if I wouldn't have been a really  better girl had I sometimes kept still  about my own small wrongdoings as  well as tacitly owned up to a few  which I hadn't committed. The slightly  pharisnical attitude of mind came  strongly into play again over the 'exam, pads' I wouldn't borrow and the  crib knowledge I would have none of,  and, although I never did say I was  glad to'see anyone falsely. I've strained the truth _and cj-ac-ked 'iny conscience's funny, bone many a time try-'  hilt to think of some other conventionally pleasant tiling to say. And now"���������  "Well.'what is it?" 1 preyed.her. determined to fathom the rronble at last.  "What  has  happened  'now?' "  ���������  But    she  "merely    shook    her , head'  mourn fully and rambled on. .       '  ,  "It's a point of' .���������o-.sr-i.-noe with me.  it always lias h"en. ro !<;o*. at-all things  from both sides, and. in consequence,  niany a time I've lon'-ed a*-a -riven  question from both sides of rhe fence  until I've initialed myself unon it and  Dave writhed under the knowledge  thac people thought I was sailing with  the wind, and so on:        "'  " '1'ou run with the hare and hunt  with the hounds, don't you?' a girl said  to me last week, and, mean as she was,  I understood just, how she thought it  was true. And yet I was only following out the dictates of my' abnormal  conscience and trying to be just.  "Another girljast week asked me if  the powder on her face showed, and  when I said,.yes she fairly hated me.  My conscience didn't allow me'to say  no," and it never occurred* to me until  long afterward 'that I might have,  pleasantly brushed oil' the powder for  her. which did show and left tho powder which didn't show alone'without  saying anything at all. Two days ago.  my brother's wife asked me what I  thought of .her.; complexion,, and .because my conscience compelled me to  tell her the truth she went home without bidding ine,go"6d night or speaking  to me again. She hasn't spoken to' nie  since, in fact. And things have gone  on after this fashion until I am tired  of it. -   /_* .  n* -o  * ','When 'Robert Elsmere' first came  out, sit, was a point of conscience with  me not to read it, and every one' called  me 'saint' and "prig' until life,, wsi's a  wearyo burden. A,7week or two ago  some of us were talking of it,-and it occurred, to me, that it was a point of  conscience not to condemn a thin unread. The consequence was that I suffered tortures on account of dislocated  religious principles for a whole \. eek.  Then it occurred,to me that it was a  point of conscience (not to let'anything  shake my faith 6rf" interfere with my  religious stability, and that particular  conscience trouble gave way to another. I always have one or more on  hand, as you know." - < *��������� *  ��������� I did know. I never knew Olivia  when she didn't.have a whole sheaf of  such trials and ;tribulationsi.ou hand.1  I was dying to hear all about the la'st  .new conscience wrench,; and. she would  not come to the point. I did not dare  to hurry her for fear of never hearing  of it at all.  "When my friends and relatives make  fun'of"-Delsarte exercises or the newr  est- form of athletics, my relentless  conscience always impels me to try  these things personally, just so that I  can discuss them intelligently and  without prejudice. In consequence I'm  seldom without a backache or a sprained muscle or something equally pleasant. Let a politician, a private individual, a cause or anything else, for  that matter, become unpopular, and  my tyrannical conscience compels me  to champion it or him or them. As a  result half the people I, know are continually writing me down as 'a miserably disputatious and disagreeable person."  Which was putting the matter entirely too strong. But then that's Olivia's  way. It's a point of conscience with  her to make the worst of herself for  fear she should be untruthfully complimentary.  "It's always been so," she moaned  now, beginning to sob a little, "but  now it's worse than ever.    Now"���������  "If you don't come out with it now."

He had given me the un me of H  Jones-Jones. "It. struck me that there  was an extra amount of Jones about  him. but the name is an honest one.  and 1 didn't find fault about it. He  was a man of about 45. with all the  evidences of his career in his face, but  I didn't look for babylike innocence in  his eyes. When he threw himself  upon my mercy, as it were���������when he  made a clean breast of his wicked career and added that if any one would  point out the path of honesty he would  turn into it and travel on without a  limp, I agreed to take him in hand.. He  had whiskers with which the police  were acquainted, and I sent him to a  barber shop. He had clothes which  gave him away as a dead game sport,  and I bought him a modest suit of  blue. Then I gave him money for a  week's vacation from crime, and when  the vacation was over we were to see  what further could be done. I took my  week off at the same time and brought  up amid the fresh buttermilk and dew  kissed goldenrod ojg. the country.,    , ���������  On the second night of my stay, as 1  sat by my open window at midnight to  finish the last of my cigar and wonder  if my Jones-Jones had "kept straight  during the last 48 hours, I suddenly  caught'sight of him on the ground be-  Jow. It was' a farmhouse hotel at  -which' 1 was stopping.' I had a corner  robin, and at that corner'of the house  stood "a large apple tree. I had observed that a big limb branched out so  dose to my'window that I could have  descended'by it. Wha't ,you 'can',descend bv you can also ascend 'bv. 1  had no sooner caught sight of Jones-  Jones nt the foot of the'tree at an hour  when everybody was supposed, to be ,in  bed than I understood that he intended ,to pay me," a secret visit. How he'  had tracked-mo to my lair was of no  consequence. Why he should imagine'  tliat-1 badobrought along any great'  amount of-boodle on my week's'outing  1 didn't stop to figure. ��������� Indeed I'am  not stire that he had tracked me. In  looking for' country board he might  have stumbled upon the place. _ He  might have thought the open window  belonged to another, boarder. , No matter how it was. however. Mr. Jones-.  Jones had no sooner begun1 to climb  that apple'tree than I made ready to  receive him with^nll due hospitality.  There was no club in _ the room, but  the water, pitcher bad been filled for'  the night and made a good weapon.'  Armed with that I ".took my stand on  one 'side of tbe window and,'waited.  .Jones-Jones was not-'an impetuous  man. -< He'1 had all night in' which ,to  climb and creep.'and it was.at least-15  ��������� minutes before he*grasped my window  sill with his handstand drew his.body  into the opening.'c I ^waited with patience until he had reached a particular , position ������ and . then   brought - the  Ditcher down upon his head.   The idea  was to administer an anaesthetic, and  , It was a success. He pitched forward,"  in to'the room with a long drawn sigh,'  and I lighted the lamp and,.took .from  his wrist the "billy" ���������_ which 'he had  bought in town with my money to, use  as a "cracker" in case his sleeping  victim woke up before being plundered. Then I forced brandy, between his  teeth, bathed his face *with water, and,  in the course of a quarter of an hour  my midnight -visitor had- so far recovered his senses that I ventured to remark: " '���������" 7 - ,  - "Weli, Jones-Jones, why" didn't you  tell-ine that you were coming, that-1  might be on tlie lookout for you?" ' ,  ', Jones-Jones sat up. He���������didn't recognize me. He himself had a different  look;,on-his,jface. That dissipated but'  yet crafty lookhad disappeared, and in  its place was wonderment if not honesty. . It was my wicked man in the  flesh, but not in the spirit. He got off  the floor and felt of the bump on his  head and'sat down on a chair, and it  was a long five minutes before he said:  "Sir, my name is Brown-Brown, and  I don't exactly understand the situation. Am I in your room, or are you  In mineT^ ,    *  "I believe It's, my room," I replied,  "but being astyou arrived late and the  landlord is asleep you can stop until  morning."- ,���������  "Very kind of you, sir���������extremely  kind^As to this biimp on my head-  is Itj-ja-* bump or not?

Mr.  Ashmere, as to the business in hand.  If you think you can advance me $500,  I am sure I can make a go of it."  It took me a little while to catch on,  but by and by I discovered that Jones-  Jones had been knocked out and  Brown-Brown had taken his place.  Jones-Jones was a crook who wanted  to reform; Brown-Brown wasS-a poor  but honest man who wanted to go into  the making of shirts. He knew nothing whatever of Jones-Jones. He picked* up the conversation as if he had  been talking about the business when  the accident happened. Fie called mo  by another name than my own. and  It was plain to nie that he was also  another man. 1 sounded him about  crime and state prison, but he solemnly  assured me that he had never been arrested. He was Brown-Brown as far  as. his name went, but as for his past  history he was rather bazy on the sub-t  ject.     \  I had turned-Jones-Jones, the crook,  back into Brown-Brown, the honest  man. by a knock on the head. It was  rapid transit reformation, and I looked  upon the problem as solved. Having  been willing to assist a crook. I could  not refuse an honest man. When my  week was up. we went back to 'town  together, and I gave Brown-Brown'���������  money enough to set up in shirtmak-  ing. He had on the clothes I had  bought Jones-Jones. He had the hair,  the eye.;, the mouth and the build of  the crook, but there had been a change  of souls' As far as the present went  h-i? was bright and talkative, but when  ask6"d'-of- the^ past he looked puzzled  and could not figure it out. The doc-1  tors agreed with ine^that, it was the  whack on the head that had made  Brown-Brown of Jones-.Tohj^s and that  the police ought to be given full power  to go around breaking water pitchers  over crooks' craniums; but, alas,'\*that  was a twist of the business we hadn't  the foresight to discover and prepare  for. ' ���������''  7  My man prospered wonderfully welU  feople said  he was a little eccentric,  but he'was honest and a .liard .worker.  In one year he had paid me back half  my money,*, and  built up a good business. - One day a detective entered the  store   to   make  a   purchase.   , He'.had  'known- Jones-Jones  as   a" crook.'    He  knew that Jones-Jones had a,crooked  finger on  his right  hand, and  a. mole  on his left cheek.    When he discovered  that   Brown-Brown ' had ' these   same,  ,  identification marks, he began  to look ���������  at  him  more closely,  and by, aud _ by   '  he,   inside   up   his   mind   rhat   the   old  crook   stood   before   him.     He   was  so  sure of it. that he set out to make an  arrest,    Brown-Brown  was an   honest  man. but iri his surprise he started to  make a bolt of it.   As he ran out of his  shop aud down the street., pursued by���������  the detective, he encountered a policeman who tapped, him on the head with  his  club.     Brown-Brown   went  down   <���������.  like a log. aud  was..carted off to the   "  station.   I was present when his senses '  returned, anil you can imagine my I'eoi-  iugs when he sat up and said:  ''Well, you've' got me at last, but 1 w  gave you a run for it.

Will   Weigh    Accurately    a   Pound  of
Feathers or Two of the Biggest   '
From the Washington Post.     ,  _
While Washington .is not a manufacturing city, with large industrial enterprises reuniring ,the use of monster
weighing machines, or "scales,"' 'as thej
nie commonly cabed, it has many weight
determining balances, and one, at'least,
which leads -all others in this country.
The large scales upon which entire
It eight cars, with their loads'of, many
tons, are weighed are considered colossal, but \vith all their immensity they
uie meagre-'in thp eyes of Uncle Sam,
who went the railroad magnates of.the'
country "one better" by installing at the
navy yard the largest pair of scales m
the country. *
This machine can outweigh the largest
railroad scales by fifty tons, and when it
is considered fhabits result'must be accurate to a pound,' while railroad scales
are considered good when they come
within fifty pounds of the exact weight,
the result obtained i,. little, less than marvellous. The scales aie scarcely two
voars old, having been brought here during October, 1S0S, and set.m position'in
the south end of the big navy yard near
one of the gun shops. Aa track leads
from the gun shop to a forge aud crosses'
the flooring* of the big scales about ton
feet e.Vst of the entrance to tlie latter
building. A considerable .period of time
was required for the manufacture and
erection of this monster'machine. It
���was brought here ii. sections, and the
irroatest'care was exercised in reassembling the various sections of steel so that
the poise of the broad platform,should bo
Hundreds of visifo-s have trod acro��s
th'tx'platform withou;  'uiowing.thoy were'
near one of the most i iforesting mediant- ,
cal contrivances in the national capital.,
Thev   are   not  mentioned   in   the   guide,
books, and the men .it the navy yard do
not call attention to the scales, par excellence, unless, perhaps, "a flat car happens to be on the platform being weighed
with itxS load of two or' three great guns.'
All the large ordnance manufactured for
the navy'is weighed upon this machine.   It
has given eminent sav.sfaction, two years
of usage having' failed to dull its sensitive nature; yet it has done its work each
' day in a' dull ponderous way.  with no
meed of praise except from a few naval
- officers.    .. .    *'; '���
There is nothing attractive about the
scales. From the surface o,f the ground
thev look like ordinary hay scales: Their
delicate-mechanism like the vital organs
of the human body, is invisible to the
eve. The most intricate parts are in a>
broad pit below the ground. Close investigation,   however,   and ' a   foot   rule
, would show that the platform of the ma-
chine is forty-eight feet long and twelve
feet wide. Beneath Hm powerful machinery is .1 cement ba*-e. l.iid upon lone
niles. 'The ero_nud i�� somewhat low. and
1 it was nec'ssary to utilize the services
of a pile driver to speure a stable foundation.    A  "solid hasp is one of the prime
reouisites of a perfect weighing machine.
When the irovornmenf sought bids for
��� the erection of'the machine notices were
sent fo all the leadine scale manufacturers in the country. Much of its fine and
peeuliarlv pon-utivc apparatus was
speciallv manufactured for use in the
bis: machine, which differs in its parts
from .inv other scale*, in the country. The
completed structure is regarded as the
'finest of its kind iu the world, a -model
and marvel of modern mechanism,, as*
well as a splendid achievement for American ingenuity.
" In order to illustrate 1he accuracy of
the counterpoise of the huge machine to
a reporter an officer in the bureau of
vards and docks picked up a .half brick
- which was lying near by, and lossedMl-
upon the platform of the big scales. He
then cosulted a long brass lever m threading box al^ng the edge of the platform and fou'"' ���'������" "'0'.weight of the
brickbat was j  -**" 'one p'.und.
Turning to the lepoiter he said the
machine is so <��� ��"�����*''ve that it, will give
the exact we'xvt -'�� ��' .anything from a
pound of feathers to a pair of l.>-in-"h
guns, and do it accurately. The on pacify of th- scales is InO tons, or double
the capacity of the old sot, removed
when the present appartus was in-sfaMed.
A 18-i-ch gun weighs about fifty-five
tons.' Two of these monster instruments
of war, reelininir on a 4S-foot car truck,
can be weighed on the machine withou*
taxing its capacity.
The nearest approach to the navy yard
scales to be found in this city are the
b*<>* -rypi .thing machines of the railroads.
Though".he navy yard machine now compels them to take a hack seat, they were
-.nee envied bv tbe smaller spales as the

No better description of the nigihit in  <question could "lie found than in the  words,  "it -was  a wild  night."

A" SLICK BICYCLE GIRL-  Interesting  Achievements  of an  THugV h  r Girl. c  Miss Pay, who id an English woman well" known in bicycle circles,  is said to be one of the. betfl amateur trick riders. ' She is said to,  hold'the record for the slaiicliny balance, having" maintained her scat for  two hours, balancing the wheel without moving. Another of her feats  is that of riding one wheel and loading two. others which *��������� she picks up  from the floor while on1 the move  ani entirely without l!he use of the  handlebars. " - *"  This clover rider commences by.  mounting" in the usual way, and by  ridini-; to the spot where a bicycle  "'has " been already placed upon thes  ground This she reaches on her left  side when the left pedal is descending. She takes., advantage * of this  favorable moment to stoop and  catch hold-of" the bicycle by the left  handle: quickly swinging it up. Rn������  thon transfers her grasp to- the middle of tbe handlebar. A revolution  of the pedals "brines her within reach  of the second machine lyingr ' o tho  rieht. Coming to a halt, ������-h" balances herseli' on tho led bicycle, t.'io tires  of both front wheels touching, repeating- the above operation with  the  right  foot,   and   raising  the  sec-  OXE OF MISS DAY'S BICYCLE FEATS.  ond machine in a similar manner.  The resumption of pedaling is a  very difficult matter, partly on account of the cranks being m _n unfavorable position for the operation,  and also because the front wheel  has a tendency to swing around and  .collide with one or other of its  neighbors, a tendency which, if not  smartly checked, would cause a bad  fall, as the rider has no means of  savin-,* herself. When the cliflicuUios  of the forward movement have been  o.ercon.e, great care must still be  exercised to avoid entanglement of  pedals with stops,, spokes!. or each  other, and interlacement of handlebars. The rider keeps slightly in  advarce of her charges and executes  circles very prettily, although ' 1 he-  skdl required to 'determine'the exact  relative positions, when each machine must describe a different  longlh of curve,, is of a very high order of merit.   Getting:' On.  Miss Oakland���������It is strange that  Blanche is learning to. ride the bicycle,  when lhe other girls learned long ago.  Miss Belleiic'ld���������Blanche always was a  little peculiar, you know.  "Is she getting on all right?"  "Yes, sin- has learned to get on all  right, but she has difi-culty. in getting  off."-  Alas'.  "Of course." said the young man who  had boon singing loud and shrill. "I am',  only au amateur hi music."  ��������� "An (imniciii-," responded Mi.ss C.*>jr-  onuo pensively, "is ono who pursues an  art purely for love of it."  "1  believe so."  ''It's the way of the world," she added,  with a little sigh. "Wo are so of'on unintentionally   cruel   to  those  we  love."

From the Herald, Georgetown, Ont.  Our reporter 'recently had the  pleasure of calling on IVlr. William  Thompson, rpapermaker, at Wm. Barber & Bros.' mills, a'well known and  respected citizen of our town, ,for the  purpose of acquiring the details of  his son's long illness and ( his remarkable recovery , through' the use  of Dr. Williams' Eink Pills., Mr.  Thompson kindly gave us, the following information which will speak for  itself: "About' two and; a half years  ago my eldest son Garnet,'1 who is  fifteen years old, took what I ,sup.r  posed to be inflammation in his left  eye. , He was "taken to a physician,,  who advised me to take him to an  ,eye specialist, which I did, -only to  find out that he had lost the sight  of ,the eye completely. The disease  spread from his eye to' his wrist,  -which became gieatly swollen, and  was lanced no less than eleven times.  His whole arm was completely .useless, ,although he, was not suffering'  any pain. From his wrist it went*to  his' foot which was also lanced a  couple of times, but J without bringing  relief. . The next move of. the trouble  was to the 'upper ,part *' of, the leg,  where it broke out, large quantities  of matter running from the sore.' All  this time my boy was-iinder the best  treatment I could procure, but with  little or "no effect. The trouble was  pronounced consumption of the bloocL  and I was told by the doctor that  you would not come across a. case  like it in five' hundr.ed. When almost  discouraged and& not -"knowing cwhat,  to do for idie best/'a friend of mine  urged me to try-Dr. pWilliams' Pink  Pills, saying that "he0 had a son who  was afflicted with a somewhat similar disease and had been������ cured by  the pills. ,1 decided to give Dr. Williams' Pink Pills a trial and secured  some'Of/lhem at. the drug store, and  after my-boy had taken "two boxes I  could see the color coming back to  his sallow complexion and noted a-  * decided change for,' the better. >, Pie  went on taking' them-and in a few  months from' the time he started to  use them I-.considered him perfectly  cured and not a 'trace'~of' ths disease  left, except" his, blind -eye, the, sight  of which he had lost before'he start7  ed to use. the pills. He-has, now become'quite fleshy and I consider-him  one'of .the healthiest -boys'-* in tho community. -If any person is desirous of  knowing the merits of Dr. Williams'  Pink PUls you may direct them fto  me, as I can highly recommend them  to>any person '-at*.idcd as my boy  was." i  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills euro by  going to the root of the . disease.  They renew and build up the blood,  and" strengthen the nerves, thus driving disease from the system.

Although the brain is the chief part;  af /the animalman, yet there are many  tilings about the braiii which scientist*!  have'not'yet fathomed. _  But great strides have been.made in  that knowledge which has only within  recent years beeu discovered and which  reveals to, us what 'the' cranium really  contains. Shelving what has gone before and^vhat has'been taught as med--  ical law, the following hiteri.stiug*data<  on how the brain works are now* what  is accented at the present time as, the  correct theory:  The cerebrum���������front and top���������is the  ' chief part nt the braiu and the immediate source of all our mental action.  The gray matter of the outer-surface Is  made up of layers of nerve cells. These  are the thinking centers. Experiments  have clearly demonstrated that each  convolution'hasa special function, and  if destroyed It cannot be replaced.     ���������  It has also been found that, the leftside of the brain Is more active than  the right.    '  How has that been found out? .Well,  if? an-epileptic commences a.- fit by _  twitching the right thumb or hand,one  would'find Its cause in its nerve center  on the left side of the brain. " It is only  within the past few years that.medical  meniare.now able to make a map of the  surface'of the brain'according* to the  various functions performed.,   ,  AlP Impressions received from the  outer world, whether through, the medium of sightr su-idl. bearing, taste'-or  touch, are carried direct "to" the surface  of the, brain and recorded in7tbe brainr  cells of their respective areas, while  all; movements are the result'of impulses from the cells in the different,  'motor areas.    . k        ' " '"  .' Now, , there are, five large sensory  areas In the make up of, the brain."  First, sight, which is the? largest, at  the back of the brain. Smell.-'taste and'  hearing have their positions at the side  of the head in the temporal (temples)  region and Inner surface.* Touch has  Its domicile at the top .of the brain,  while the large motor (giving motion)  area takes up the bulk of the-middle  brain. '-- - -.  These are so splendidly arranged by  nature that the motor cells of the lips  are in front, then those of^ the hand.-  arm and so on tot the foot. To give  you an example how the sensory aud  motor nerves work: If you touched  anything hot or sharp, the impression  would be conveyed to the sensory area  along the nerves connected with it.  The sensory cell which received the  message would innnediately communicate with the motor cells to pull your  hand away.  Why is it easier to remember an object than, say, a mathematical formula  or a poem? The reason of this is that  'whereas the former has impressions  stamped on several braiu centers, such  as sight, touch,' smell, taste and tbe  rest, tbe latter are stamped on centers  which are not nearly so retentive as  the former.  In repeating poetry, for Instance, it  Is the sound of the last line which  suggeststthe next line, but an object  presents itself to the brain centers  concerned immediately.

But one day order  was born of confusion, sobriety of hys-  ' * terical anticipation.   That was the day  Deronda's   trunk   stood   labeled   and  <   . corded on the platform, tbe day Deron  da's self, freshly and becomingly garbed, stood beside it. the day that Agent  Bertram and Mrs. Bertram and all  the numerous young Bertrams listened  for the whistle of the train at the  depot eight miles west, hung around  her with growing excitement as the  black column of smoke came down  ^,'\ like   the  guide   of   those   fleeing   from  Pharaoh rind clung around her in an  adoring farewell, which was detrimental to her finery if flattering to ber sensibility.  Then the iron boast was upon them.  A few passengers alighted. Some express packages were handed off. These  the agent mechanically received. Then  Deronda's foot was on the first step  of tbe Pullman'. The engineer was  looking back to see that the agent's  pretty daughter got on safely before  he pulled* the throttle. The brakeman  stood irresolute. The conductor loitered along, deferring the signal to start,  because the departure of Deronda for  the east was public property all along  the line, and the men who had known  her since she_wore short dresses and  waved them a welcome when their  train went by were interested in this  young bird flight of hers from the  overflowing-family nest.  A tentative whistle quivered on the  air.  "Goodby, Deronda! Have a good  time!" Deronda's father gave her a  hard squeeze of the hand. There was  the peck of a kiss between these two  who loved each other so dearly.   And the train, was speeding eastward.  Ah, that was a marvelous world  Into  which   Deronda  went,   a  world  where one wore dainty clothes' from  dawn until, dawn, a world where the  chief function of the women was to  charm, that of the men to serve \vith  most exquisite courtesy. And the meed'  of, admiration she received when her  western dresses' had been discarded  for,' beautiful gowns was new to her.  vYery sweet it was too.    To  be sure.  , she had'known what It  was to have  young men besiege" her for dnn-ces and  hang upon*���������her words.,  But^tt one ease  those who bad given her tnroute were  clumsy   and r rough rhan&ed,  country  bo-_.

A' tall, beautiful  young woman, most .charmingly gowned, attracted the observation or the  throng as she came down the waiting  room. She noticed the woman sitting  alone and evidently in distress  "Can I be ot service?" she inquired,  pausing.  The traveler, in apparel too elaborate  and youthful for her years, looked up  into the gentle face of the speaker. Her  wrinkled cheeks were chalky under  their rouge, and her false curls and  bonnet were awry.  "No!" she shrilled, heedless of hearers. "No one can help me. I brought  it on myself.

In vain did she listen.'' An hour, then  two",'then three hours passed by, and  sick at heart Rosalie went up to her  room and cried herself to sleep. ���������  Rosalie was warm hearted and quick  tempered. 'But was easily' appeased.  1 She was also passionately fond of admiration and quite as much bent on  having her own way as was good for  her. These faults, however," did not  prevent the* village beaus from being  at her disposal, and hitherto she had  been nearly impartial In her treatment  of them, having no mind to' give up  the general homage by fixing upon  one. <������������������ '  But lately there had been a difference In her, feelings. She had acknowledged there was a charm in Harry Reynolds' attentions such as she  had never found in any other., A thrill  new and delicious went through her  when their eyes met. and 'she read  the admiration which he vainly tried  to repress.*-,. Harry had a hiirh ideal  of womanly ext-ellence which Rosalie  by no means came up to, but in spite  of her frivolities and his own misgivings they were frequently together and  fast verging toward an explanation  when that destiny which appears to.  delight in the annoyance of lovers introduced an element of discord into  their happiness.  Mr. Clarence Dal ton came up from  the citj'on a visit, to his uncle. E-Ie  was" handsome, agreeable, wealthy and  noted for the careful elegance of his  attire. The girls were enchanted with  him. and Rosalie alone regarded him  .with seeming indiirerence. .She said  to herself with virtuous resolution, she  must be careful now. Harry mightjbe  wounded if she received attentiSi^  from such a lion. ;fw-  Happy for her had this prudent disposition lasted. But. the old spirit  came up after awhile. She was entirely accustomed to queening it in her  little world, and her vanity Was piqued  that Mr. Dalton did not at all seem  struck by her charms. It was quite a  Christian duty to give Mr. Dalton a  lesson in good taste. So by a few little  feminine lures, such as a pretty girl  ���������well knows how to practice, he was  attracted to her side, and once there  he seemed exceedingly well pleased to  stay.  Harry could endure it no longer and  in tbe-interview whose close we have  portrayed determined to "put his for  tune to the touch to win or lose it(all."  Conscious    of    her  power,   indignant,  with some" justice, that he should assume, to dictate her conduct when he  had never openly declared his love, Rosalie had responded by a series of flippant.   , exasperating    'little .   speeches  which,drove Harry almost to despair.  She  intended   to   relent   in   time,   but  pride, vanity and a certain'triumph in,  'knowing that his  whole ,manly  heart  'was'hers to play with at will wrought  ��������� sad mischief. *   ,/( '     .,/ '  " Rosalie ,'had no doubt that narry  would come the next evening as'usual  ���������and all could easily be' made right  again. But the evening came and went  and no Harry. What could it mean?  Surely he*" loved her. and if so he could  . not .stay away. , She would wait patiently since it was all that she could'  do.    ';//''     , '   ���������  The ,next evening Mr. 'Dalton called,  but Rosalie sent down word that'she  was ������ill and asked to be excused. Yet  asfnight after night .went by and Hrir-'  ry did not return'her submissive mood  changed. She would show^ Mr. Harry  Reynolds that she was not suffering  from the withdrawal of his presence.  There were other peoplecqulte deli'ght-  ed-to be In her'company.        . -,,  i The next time/Mr. Dalton came she  did not decline to see' him, .but came  down and was as friendly and pleasant  as' could be desired. The young man  noticed a more womanly thoughtful-  ness In her manner, than he had bith.  erto ,,observed ,and wondered what  might be the causfe. '- ,, ���������    r   " '     ,   ���������;'  * Poor Harry's - state meanwhile was'  farv from, enviable. For the first 24  hours, he maintained a'^flerce resentment! But as the days came-and "went  he softened little by little until" every  harsh sentiment,had vanished; and a  determination seized him to seek I Rosalie and 'try to efface tbe^ memory of  his previous sternness.    ^,, ,_ &* v , _,  ;  Toward.evening he .wended his.woy  to.her home^witii the sweetest.anticipK  tions* of reconciliation and' affection.  .With every step she seemed  to grow  ^lovelier and dearer than_ before.' But  a^ he neared the'gate a sight met hia  eyes which, speedily cooled down the  fervid tones of his fancy painting. Ti'  was Mr. Dalton "assisting Rosalie to  dismount from her tiorse. The exercise  had brought a bright flush to her cheek,  and she was fairly' dazzling.- She per-  ceived Harry, in-time-to bestow on hinv  a very "''distant bow--and then'turned;  '.with added empressment,'to her companion. Harry changed his intentions  at once., walked by."the house in rthe.  most leisurely and Indifferent; manner  and proceeded.to call.upon that(obnox-  ,Ious,. Nellie Kellis, * whom Rosalie regarded so'superciliously., ,-'  * Mr. Dalton meanwhile found "his affairs, in a somewhat perplexing state:  Flirtation had-been since his eleventh  year the element in which he delighted to exist. Matrimony with its cares  and responsibilities was to him' the  most distant of prospects and must, offer extra inducements to make him forsake his freedom. Now, however, he  began to feel himself very seriously interested in *a.person who had not one  claim to-fashion, family or fortune���������a  little village girl who wore dresses of  her own fitting and made all the pies  and cakes that appeared on her table.  Whether she really cared for hirn'or regarded him as a friend or simply as  an admirer was impossible to say.  Other people were not slowr in drawing their conclusions, and before three  weeks vwere over the village authorities in such cases declared it wTould be  a match.  . Harry could not In his .heart deny  the reasonableness of their predictions.*1  He had the grief of believing that*his  wishes, hopes and affections were nothing to Rosalie. Yet had he anything  but his own harshness to blame for  the change? He was miserable, but his  own act'had caused the misery.  Mr. Dalton had a mother living, a  stately lady of some forty odd years,  well preserved and a leader of society.  Clarence was her only boy and the  object of a great many ambitious  dreams. The inariiage which looked  to her so misty and far away was to  ber a very near reality. She had selected a girl of his rank for a wife,  when, lo, there came a rumor that  struck her to the heart. Could it be  that Clarence was about to make a  fool of himself? She wrote a letter  to ber son in which she expressed perfect confidence in his discretion and  her assurance that he would do nothing foolish or.imprudent.  Mr. Clarence's brow as h-7- read the  maternal effusion was clouded with  ���������thought. Where, in the name of "common sense, could there be any-danger  in a'marriage with such a charming  girl as Rosalie Ames? As for the danger of her heart, he wished be were,  a little surer of it. He felt at that  .moment thatrhis own was in a much  more perilous position than hers.  As Harry walked that afternoon  along the broad road leading from his  house he was attracted by almost in-'  articulate groans, and looking a few-  yards into the distance he saw a senseless form lying in his path, while a  mad horse dashed furiously down  the road. As he drew nearer' he  recognized the dark, tasteful riding  suit which he had seen Dalton wear so  often before. And passing from the  clothing his eyes rested upon the face,  pale as death, of tbe unconscious man.  Good and bad angels tugged at Harry's soul for one moment in a mortal  conflict. Whaf'call bad he Tto, interfere  in his behalf? The sneering fop who  had blighted all his hopes! Let'him  stay there and die. But in the next  moment, forgetting all but the welfare  of his fellow being, he snatched off his  overcoat and raised Dalton's head and"  . rested it upon it. Then, with frantic  haste, he summoned aid. ^and all that  rskill-and,'care.could do was employed  for the sufferer's restoration. Harry  hung over him1, pale and agonized, the  raccusing voice ever ringing in his ears.'  "God forgive me." "'he cried.'"
