Editob Cumberland News.  ���������Sir,���������You may talk of the SPCA  in connection with branding aud  dehorning if you please, but as regards ear-marking the thing is  absurd., Any man of common sense  should know that the carving of a  s-xmli piece out of the thin edge of  an animal's ear hurts it no more  than a cut linger hurts a child, and  heals up again just as quickly.,  Why, I have marked yeariings at  ���������the stall, which merely dapped  their ears a little, and went on eating as if nothing had happened.  Ugly fly-infested sores t-ometimes  follow the use of the branding iron,  but never in ail my experience have  I seen an ill result from ear-marking. Of course I do not mean ear-  cropping, or cutting down into the  thick of the ear, wbich would be a  very different matter, and would  show extreme foolishness on the  part of the owner, as, quite apart  from the wickedness pf it. it would  be a hindrance to money-making  But if such cases occur here, they  have not come under my notice.

"That was a terrible crime thnt  young fellow committed the other day,  Mr. Jackson," said Mr. Clinton, leaning past Mr. Daggett, "And to think  tbat the victim was his own father!"

It was very restful, nnd sho  was so tired. She decided that this'  giving-of faculty dinner's wis a nuisance.  Presently she glanced at her husband. Lou.-? experience had taught him  that it was wiser to allow his wife to  begin a conversation on the day of a  faculty dinner party. So at this critical moment he deliberately capped his  fountain pen, put it in his pocket and  came over to the fire, stretching his tall  figure to its greatest length. As he  threw himself on the divan she began:  "Well!"  "How is it going, dear? Everything  ready?"  "Yes, John; I think so. I have just  put the last touches to the table. The  flowers came. They're lovely. You  were dear, John, to take so much trouble ordering them."  "Nothing gone wrong, then?"  "No-o; John."  "What made you sigh when you came  In?"  "Did I?" hypocritically. "Oh, noth  ing. Only I was just thinking."  "Thinking what?"  "Good heavens, John! This isn't a  'quiz.' I simply wanted your advice."  "My advice! Do I hear aright? I  know I am a tremendously wise man"���������  "Professor Hastings! Will you be serious, please? You see, it's a Question  of love."  At this he sat upright.  "Love! Have you turned matchmaker, Helen Augusta? Come over here  and tell me the whole story." And he  gently pulled her down beside him on  the divan.

Poor blood, weak nerves, impaired digestion, loss of flesh. No  energy, no ambition, listless and indifferent. This condition is perhaps  the penalty of overwork, or the ro-  sult of neglected health. You must  regain jour health or succumb entirely. Them is just one absolutely  sure way to do this���������tako Di\ Williams' Pink Pills. Theso pills will  bring you new life, fill every vein  with rich, red blood, restore elasticity to the step, tho glow oil health to  the wan cheek; they will inspire you  with new energy and supply the vital  force ol mind and body.  There is not a corner of the civilized World where Dr. Williams' Pink  Pills havo not brought health arid  hope and happiness to some weak,  debilitated, despairing* person. If  you havo not used the pills yourself,  ask your neighbors and thoy will tell  you these statements are Holemn  truth. Mr. Charles Saulnier,"jjorber-  rie, N, S., says : "I was very much  run down and so weak I could hardly  work. It seemed as though my blood  was little better than water. I tried  several medicines, but I got nothing  to help me until I began taking Dr.  Williams* Pink Pills. It was simply  astonishing how quickly these pills  began to help m& and how much new  life and vigor they put into me. I  am a cook; by profession, and tha  fact that I was able to cook for fifteen men last Wintor is tho best  proof that the pills have made mo as  sound as ever I was."  There is no mystery about the  power of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills to  put new life and strength Into you.  They actually make new blood, and  that Is why they cure all blood diseases, like anaemia, indigestion, liver  and kidney troubles, headaches and  backaches and the special ailments of  women. Through the blood Dr. Williams' Pink Pills feed and.steady the  nerves, strike at the root of nervousness, cure St. Vitus' danoe, fits, neuralgia, sciatica and partial paralysis.  All these diseases spring from bad  blood and disordered nerves, and  they have all been cured positively  and permanently by Dr. Williams'  Pink Pills.

Three hours later the carriage bearing Miss Elizabeth Parker rolled noiselessly along College street. She folt  distinctly uervous. Professor Allen  would very certainly be thero. And  at the last faculty dinner, just before  commencement, she had given him the  rose from her hair, and he Liad said���������  As she stepped into the Hastings'  hall Mrs. Hastings called from the  top of the stairs:  "Come up, dear. How perfectly  sweet of you to come! I was afraid  you wouldn't get the message in time.  Jean will be delighted. Do go right  in. I have to see that John's tie ia  straight." And she disappeared through  a half open door.  Elizabeth on opening the nursery  door was joyfully welcomed by the  tiny Jean, who sprang into her arms  with a cry of delight and hugged her  close. Then she curled up contentedly  in Elizabeth's lap, murmuring, with a  sigh of satisfaction, "Sing 'Pick-a-hin-  ny.'"  The songs went on uninterruptedly  for half an hour. Then the carriages  began to arrive. Elizabeth could hear  the ponderous annual joke of the professor of mathematics and the obedient laugh of his assistant as they passed into the dressing room. She heard  the rustle of skirts as the women fluttered down the stairs.  "They must all be here," she  thought, "but I won't go down till I  have to."  She glanced at Jean, whose eyes  were heavy with sleep, and sang again  the favorite song. And this was the  scene upon which Professor Allen  gazed a minute later as he stood at the  nursery door. In her shimmering satin  gown, her crimson cape falling back,  revealing her beautiful neck and arms,  _fcei_.s-TOr*$jt^^  him as she looked down at the drowsy  child cradled in her arms, she seemed  to the unhappy professor almost divine. ,  As he stood listening to the lullaby  Jean, suddenly raising her head, saw  him.  "Oh, Mr. Allen, turn In, turn in!" she  cried.  There was no escape.  He came In.  Elizabeth's heart beat so loudly she  felt sure he must bear it, but she did  not speak. *  "Jean, I came In to say good night."  "Is I your sweetheart tonight?"  "Yes, dear."  "Does you Iub me?"  "Yes, Jean,"  "Does you lub Llzbuff too?"  He gave one appealing look, but the  denr face was turned away, He resolved to risk all in. ono desperate  stroke.

C. J&cClure  y*0ry*0-*O+0*O  i  ���������oo  After being In business In tbe city  nearly a score of years,'the last five of  ���������which he had been a widower aud in  failing health, John Dayton finally  heeded the advice of the doctor and  bought a farm and prepared to retire  to the conntry and rejuvenate himself.  The farm was purchased through an  agency and without his having ever  stepped foot upon the land. But there  was one thing the agent failed to represent. The previous owner of tbe  farm had died and left a widow and a  mortgage. While the mortgage bad  been foreclosed and the farm sold according to law, a villago lawyer bad  discovered a flaw in the proceedings  and advised the widow to stick. Having paid for legal advice she was determined to get the-benefit of it. She  remained on the farm as much of a  fixture as tbe big red barn, and sho  proposed to fight it out on that line.  It therefore came about that when  the widower came to take possession  of his farm .he* met with a surprise  party. He understood that he would  find the Widow Parsons in tho house,  but he didn't understand what sort of  a widow she'was. He found a middle aged, pleasant faced woman ready  to welcome him, and her soft ways  and the goodness' of the dinner prejudiced him in favor of country life at  once. -,-���������''  Nothing of the business In hand was  broached until dinner was over and  until he bad sized the widow up as a  meek and humble woman. It was  when he carelessly inquired whether  she had taken another farm or proposed to move tb the nearest village  that the first brickbat hit him. She  didn't propose to vacate at all. She  preferred to go on living amid "the  peaceful songs.of birds and the lazy  drone of bumblebees, but If it waa  to be lurid war he would find her -wav-  ���������ing-her-banners-at��������� the-front.���������John  AH UB BTARTJ8D FOB THB HOOR TUB BULLDOG STAHTBP VOll UIM.  Dayton was an aggresslvo man, an ob-  stlunto man and n man with a temper, and tbo widow didn't blunio bim  a bit when bo pounded bis leg wltb bla  fist and replied io her:  "I don't want to bo moan about this  tiling, but Z want and will havo possession of my own. I will glvo you ono  week to clear out. If you aro not gono  by that tlmo I'll linvo you thrown out."  "You are invltod to dlnnor a week  from today," tbo widow quietly replied.  Mr. Dayton went to town to consult  a lawyer nnd tlio sheriff. Tlio lawyer  told bim tbat all the rights in tho caie  woro bis, and tbe sheriff said bo would  put bim in possession as soon as the  writ of execution was placed in bis  bands. Monnwhllo if bo could bluff tbe  widow it would be so much gained for  bim. lie returned to the farm after a  day or two to bluff. Ho was a* kindly  received as if be had come to buy paper  rags and sell tinware, and, though be  was vexed and annoyed, be couldn't  help but admit tbat tbe widow had  beautiful blue eyos.  "I bare ascertained that I have tbs  law on my side," be began, -'but, as I  ssid to you before, I don't want to be  mean about it."  "No; I don't think you are a mean  man," sbs kindly replied.  "I want possession, but I don't want  any row, snd If you would consent to  take |80 snd vacate next week I think  I would pay It."  "lou Irs t generous man, and I  won't rob you. Three or four years  hence, after the case bas gone to the  supreme court and been decided  against me, I may look around for another farm."  "Woiuan. you are defying the law,"  claimed the widower as patience  ceased to be a virtue. "I tell you I'll  bave Possession here if I have to dump  everything and everybody into the public highway with ray own bands."  "Come to dinner any day���������glad to see  you," -was her reply as she followed  bini to the door.  "ST-e-s; I see," mused his lawyer as  the wldow������ returmed and reported.  "The Widow is simply a trespasser.  She ought to be put off at once.",  "Y-e-a; I see," mused the sheriff when  bo -was appealed to. "That writ ought  to be placed ia my bands."  Both lawyer and sheriff hinted at a  certain line 0f conduct, though protest-  ing that they were uot legal hints, and  three days later John Dayton drove out  to his farm prepared to take all the  bulls and cows by the horns. He began at the barnyard. He opened wide  the gates and turned a one eyed ram  and a one horned cow into the road. A.  couple of bogs with curls in their tails  would have been next on the programme had not tlie Widow Parsons  appeared on the scene. She was accompanied by a bulldog, who seemed  anxious to complicate things, and her  voice was not at all high pitched as she  warned the widower off tbe premises.  He pounded on the barn door and replied:  "This is my property. I am here to  take Possession. The widow and the  bulldog who interfere with me must  take the consequences."  The consequences were taken. As he  started for the curiy tailed hogs the  bulldog started for him, and when the  widower got through with the circus he  had half a dozen bites to carry back to  town.  "Stars above, but it Is nothing less  than a case of murderous assault!" exclaimed the lawyer when the story had  been told. "You have only to apply  for a warrant to have the Widow Parsons sleep in jail tonight, and she must  surely be convicted when she comes to  trial."  "Never in all my life did I hear of  such an outrage," added the sheriff,  "and I will take the greatest pleasure  in making the arrest."  But when. tke_bites badV got overach-  Ing more hints���������not legal hints���������were  thrown out, and as a result John Dayton made a fourth visit to his farm.  This time kg. knocked at tbe front door  of the bouse instead of stopping at the  barnyard, and when admitted he said:  , "Widow parsons, I'm a determined  man. I'm bound to have my farm if I  have to take'you with It."  Tbo widow looked at him for a long  minute, and there was a smile around  her mouth as she quietly replied:  "It might be your best way. Come  a-courtlng, and we'll see about It."  And six weeks later there was neither widow nor widower. John Dayton and his wlfo were running the  farm, and the bulldog was quiescent.  Tree bore le Wot Jedlova,  The greatest thing in the world ia  lovo. It is the most beautiful thing  too. Strangely euougb, however, it is  apt to go hand in hand with the ugliest  thing, which is jealousy, The green  eyed monster's favorite victims are lovers.  No sight is more terrible than tho  Jealous rago of a lover. Tho man wbo  suspects his sweetheart of flirting with  some ono else is enduring such pain  that he is hardly respohslblo for bis actions.  Similarly, the girl who sees that her  flanco ls faithless experiences a heartache which ia llttlo abort of maddening,  It is sad when sueb suffering is without any real causo, Tho man or girl  who is a victim of unreasoning jealousy is to bo pltlod. Tbo Intensity of  their feelings cannot bo realizod by an  outaldor.  True love Is trustful, above all  things, Sweethearts wbo trust each  other aro novor worried wltb Jealousy,  nor havo tboy any need to bo. A truo  lovor novor flirts. So would not bo a  truo lovor if ho did,' A girl wbo really  loves bar swoothoart can bear to soo  htm walking or talking wltb another  girl without tho slightest pang. She  knows won that thoro is only ono girl  In the world for him, and that is bor-  ���������oif. In his heart slio reigns supreme,  Just as bo does la bors, Tolito and attentive though bo may bo to many an*  otbor maid, bo reserves ono thing for  bor alono. This one thing is love.

A bee's sting, unlike that of a wasp,  is always left in the wound; 60 the first  thing to dp is to remove it. Do not  take it between finger and thumb, for  that will cause it to open and release  moro of.its poison. The right method  is to push It out by rubbing up against  it with the back of the thumb nail. To  remove the pain there are many remedies, most of them homely. Here are a  few: A slice of onion, ordinary laundry  blue, sal volatile, honey, earth moistened with saliva. One or another of  these remedies is always at hand, and  a handkerchief will serve as a bandage  to keep it in place as "m*������{ as necessary.  -    Count Tolstoi.  Count Tolstoi is thus described by his  latest visitor, who found.him at home:  "After passing down long corridors, which  are like co many entrenchments around  Tolstoi's study, I at last stood before this  remarkable man. I saw him just as the  celebrated picture shows him���������in his full  peasant's Bmock, a belt round his waist,  with the white beard, the melancholy,  deep-set eyes, the coarse gray hair, the  thoughtful, wrinkled brows, the strong  hands accustomed to work, which during  his conversation he keeps passing through  his belt, and the whole -touching earnestness which surrounds the man.

At  first I thought she was going away  without another word, but as she  reached the door she turned, and  put out her hand to me suddenly.  "It's not your fault that you  couldn't tell me anything. You would  have'helped me if you could, I am  sure,"  There was a mute pathos in the  troubled littlo face, with its anxious eyes, that touched me stranfe-  ly. I took the scrap of a hand that  she stretched out to me, and held it  in mine.  What strange, sad story, I wondered, was thero about this pale,  dark-eyed little creature, who looked at me with such a patient, wintry smile?  "I would help you gladly if I  'could," I answered earnestly.  ��������� She    turned    away   with  a little  : half-nod, and vanished under the ivy-  shadowed doorway.  ��������� "Do you think that lady is in her  right mind?" I said, turning to old  Sarah, as she came back from closing the gate after her.  "Law. miss! whatever makes you  think she isn't?" retorted the ancient abigail.  "She looks so queer and strange,"  I answered, musingly.  More than once during the day, I  ran out.to the door, and stood out-  ,: side to look down the high road,  that led to Chadley Castle, to watch  for my queer little visitor's return  to Slopperton Station. But if she  passed back by our house I must  have missed her, for I did not see  her again.  For days afterwards T thought of  _her.V I could not got the sad, anx  ious little face, puckered up into so  many weary lines of care and trouble, out of my head. I puzzled out,  over and over again, the broken  threads of her story, which" I had  gathered from our one short interview, Alas! the truth appeared to  me to be plain enough; it was no  doubt the old commonplace history  of woman's weakness and man's  faithlessness, that is for ever and  ever repeating itself. Her childish  eagerness to show me the wedding-  ring upon her finger told me too  plainly that sho had no right to  wear it.  I could not forgot her, she haunted  me with a persistency which was almost like a presentiment. It almost seemed to mo as if that pale,  Bad littlo creature was in some way  connected with my own fate, and  waa to bo bound up in a mysterious  and incomprehensibie manner with  my life, I laughed at myself for  such fanciful and wild notions, and  tried to rid myself of this ox<inordinary and almost ludicrous delusion,  I littlo knew how nearly theso forebodings woro to he realized, nor how  poworful on influence that queer little dark-eyed stranger wns destined  to wield upon tho whole of my future  lifo!

Under ordinary circumsi uncos Aunt  Sollna dwelt quietly enough with hor  old husband in somowhtit gloomy seclusion in Uusmill Square, Nobody  over hoard how uii������ employed herself, nor what woro hor daily itvorn-  t ions; but no sooner did any one dlo,  no sooner was thoro distant nui|oiH  of marriages or of births than Mrs,  Carr been mo a -person af iho very  grontest Importance, and emergi-d n't  onco from privacy Into public life,  Aunt Hellna'a opinion and aiMeo  woro invaluable; she .laid down the  .uw wiih a -.ii-ui ���������ic-ip ami u<-n.-.itm  whlrh wan perfectly ronvlnrlng, :m<!  from her flnnl Judgment in a mutter  of otlquetto or precedent, thero wiih  no appeal,  Exactly three weeks, therefore, before mv weddintr-rinv, nrrnrdintr in  tho tlmo-honoi'od family custom.

She smiled  all over her fat, comfortable old faco  when she alighted nt our door. She  pressed mo rapturously to her matronly bosom many times over, and  called me by many tender names before even she looked round to seo  that Scruff, the Skye terrier, was  safely following her.  "My darling child���������such happiness!  ���������may every blessing���������such joy to  mo!���������everything so satisfactory ���������  longing to see him!" Such were tho  broken words that fell spasmodically  from her lips, choked, as it were,  with uncontrollable emotion, between the kisses: slie presse'd repeatedly on. my cheek; and though I  thanked her, and returned the kisses  with suitable affection, I laughed a  little to myself, for I knew this was  tho wedding formula which the good  lady had repeated.for years to one  and all of her nieces under similar  circumstances.  The necessary display of sentiment  over, Aunt Selina proceeded to business, for let it not be supposed that  she had come to .Slopperton for  pleasure alone���������pleasure, accompanied' by Mr. Carr and her wedding  garments, would follow in due time,  and no doubt Aunt Selina meant to  recoup herself for., her labors when  that eventful day'arrived; but, for  the present,, stern business is the order of tho da jr.  Behold us, therefore, Aunt Selina  and I, seated in the dining-room on  thfe morning after her arrival. A consignment of clothes which Mrs. Carr  had herself ordered for me has come  down from town with her, and is lying piled up in heaps.on' the dining-  room table and chairs.  I have been looking through everything, whilst my aunt, pencil and  paper in hand, is making notes Amy  remarks thereupon as we~go.  "There! so far, so good! The  trousseau is fairly forward. Madame  Dentelle will send your .wedding-  dress on tho twentieth at the latest,  and your veil is to come in the same  box. I, arranged all that with her,  and there is a gray cachemiro for  your going-away dress."  "But, aunt, I should prefer brown  tweed."  ''Impossible, Freda! it would be  out of the question. A hat instead  of a bonnet you may perhaps be allowed, for tilings have a good deal  changed lately, but the gray is do  riguour. Now let us turn to other  mallei's.    Who are 1 ho .bridesmaids?"  "1 havo no bridesmaids."  Aunt Selina 'aid down her pen and  took on her spectacles to stare at  mo in horror,  "No bridesmaids! good heavons,  child, who over heard of a wodding  without bridesmaids."  "Thoy are not necessary to the  ceremony, I believe,"  "They nre absolutely indispensable," says Aunt Splina resolutely,  taking up her pen again. "Who aro  your friends?"  "My only friend is a widow," I answered, laughing.  "Don't bo childish, Froda," says  . aunt, reprovingly. "If you havo no  friends I had better writo at onco to  your cousin Sophia's two daughtors;  I daresay sho will let them como;  they aro fairly nice-looking, and aro  about tho samo height,"  "But I havo novor soon them slnco  they woro babies," I remonstrate.  Aunt Molina is llko tho oeoan, ru.si������t-  less and relentless, Sho draws her  writing-mso to hor and begins her  note of invitation.  "Wo will wrlto to Russell and Allen by tho Mine post, and order  thoir dressos; something palo blue or  coral color will do; wo can safely  loavo it to them," Sim says it in tv  tono of decision which loaves mo absolutely without volco In tho mutter,  "And now, about tho breakfast,"  she continued, laying down hor pen,  and removing her spectacles from her  nose in order to gaze et mo with impressive solemnity as she broached  this all-liiiporliiiit subject. "What lias  your father snid about it?"  "Tho only suggonilon I have heard  papa moko upon iho subject," I answer, with boeoiulng gravity, "wan-  toft and plum cake!"

"Vou ere very kind, aunt."*  Not at all, my dear; I always do  something of the kind at niy nieces'  weddings; and Mr, Carr prefer!- It to  he the breakfast, because then ho is  sure of getting what he likes himself.  What I want to know is how many  we ahall be, and whom your father  hue thought of asking?"  A sigh of impatience escaped   me.  ��������������� "'������������������������������������Wi .Ir -       -������  1 could not rouse myself to take any  interest in the matter; was not everything connected with the day,  that was to divide mo forever from  the man I loved, hateful, odious, unbearable to me!  "Oh, what does it matter?" I exclaimed, wearily, with hot tears  gushing -up into my eyes. "Ask any  one you like, aunt; only for heaven's  sake let it bo as small a party as  possible."  "Freda, I am quite astonished at  you," said my aunt, looking at me  reprovingly; "it is most childish of  you to give way like this so long beforehand. A bride should make it a  point of duty to keep up till the day  arrives. You will bo fit for nothing  if you do not exercise a littlo self-  control. And why, pray, should  there bo a small party? . I never  heard of any wedding where it was  more essential that the breakfast  6hould bo a largo and pleasant one,  nor where it was more desirable that  everything in the arrangements  should be of the very best. A penniless girl marrying a rich man must  not be given to her husband like a  beggar ; your own delicacy of  feeling should suggest this. And  here am I ready and willing to  take all the trouble and expense of  everything off your hands; all I  want is a few simple directions from  you. Now let us have no more tears  or impatience, my dear child; let us  make out a list of tho-people, and  then you shall place yourself in.my  hands, and I will see that everything  is properly done."  I disputed no more with Aunt Selina; she had her own way in everything, and how sho .rcvellcc* 'in it  has been a matter of amusement to  me to reflect upon ever since.  She turned the whole house inside  out; she hired furniture from the.  country town to make the,long-unused drawing-room habitable; she, ordered in china and glass recklessly;  boxes camo down from town by every train; tho page-boy was kept  running backwards and forwards to  tho post-offico with telegrams all  day long; and even old Sarah caught  the infection of the general excitement, and almost'forgot to cook our  daily meals, in thc perpetual ferment which Aunt Selina kept up in  her head by giving her minute and  contradictory orders a dozen times a  day.  As to papa, he literally fled the  house, and took refuge at Eddington  for days together.  "Your aunt is a good woman, Fre-  -da7u-he-said-t-o-me-confident-ia-lly���������"a-  most excellent woman, and we ought  to be very grateful to her, for we  never could have got through it  without her. I remembered she ordered everything for your poor dear  mother's funeral���������she's a wonderful  woman���������but then, you know, I never  could stand a woman with a tongue;  perhaps it's my fault, for your aunt  is a most excellent person, but I  never could."  And so, with his manuscript under  his arm, papa trudged up daily to  Eddington, and I was left to copo  with Aunt Selina alono.  Onco Aunt Selina and I went up in  state to lunch at Eddington in order  to inspect my future home. It  would bo impossible to describe the  good lady's delight on this occasion.  Sho overpowered Mr. Curtis with  questions and congratulations, bc-th  of which embarrassed hlra considerably. , Her volubility was perfectly  unrestrainablo. Sho told him in ouo  breath that Eddington was a homo  fit for a queen; that my father's ancestors camo over with the Conquest; that a union between him nnd  myself was tho summum bonum of  all earthly desires to all concerned,  and that our posterity would rise up  and call us blessed.  How much farther my good aunt'i  enthusiasm would havo led hor in the  expression of thoso lattor-nnmod  pious aspirations I know not, for  with a wholosomo dread of what lier  noxt words might bring forth, I  aroso from tho lunchoon-tablo and  flod out on to tho torraco.  I felt very miserable, but I'triad  to consolo myself by rolloctions over  my future wealth. I said to myself,  aloud:  "It is a lovely old placo; I shall bo  ablo to do as I liko with it, I can  ask my own friends to 1111 tho house,  I shall havo everything I can wish  for. It Is tho dearest old houso In  all England. A woman must bo  hard to please, indeed, wbo could  not mako heim-lf hnppy horo,"  But though I snid my words, my  heart would not go out with thorn.  I could only see, not a vision of future pleasures, but a memory of past  happiness. Through the shrubbery  walks among tho falling leaves, I  soemod to bo wander ing onco mora  with Mark Thistleby, or standing on  tho terrace by his side, looking out  ovor tho smooth luwn towards the  now forlorn and dismantlod flower  jjavd������n  From these melancholy retrospective dreams 1 was aroused by the  voico of my aunt, calling out to me  from a window above my head.  I wont Into the house. Mrs. Carr  had been dragging tho unfortunate  bi lUegroom-eioct now room io tuuut  all ovor tho house. Sho wai in a  fever of oxcitomont ond fusty importance.  I found thorn in a little octagon-  shaped room that had been the lato  lira. Curtis' boudoir. It waa filled  with dark, old-fashioned furniture  which would have excited the envy  and admiration of an antiquarian.  The walla were hung with faded blue  aatln, and the chains were covered  with old silk, such ai no money can  buy in these days.  In this quaint old-world chamber 1  fouri** my Aunt Selina discoursing,  and suggesting, and giving her advice with eager volubility, whilst  poor Mr. Curtis stood by with a  mild and bewildered face of much enduring meekness, most ludicrous to  behold.  "Oh! hero you are, Freda!" cried  my aunt, as I entered. "Just in  time to hear what I am saying to  dear Mr. Curtis about this charming little room. Of course, love," it  must be your boudoir���������it is made for  it."    ��������� ������ .  "I had thought so, too, aunt���������that  is to say, if Mr. Curtis " I added,  looking up at him with dutiful deference.  "My dear Freda, tho whole of my  house is a,t your absolute disposal,"  said my lover, with courteous gallantry.  "Ah! what a lucky girl you are!"  cried niy aunt, uplifting her fat  hands in admiration. "It is just  what I was saying; and you must lot  me write at once to Maple, and  have a man down to do it up. We  want fresh paper, white and gold, or  perhaps little bunches of rosebuds. I  saw a sweet paper the other day at  a house in Tavistock Square where I  was paying a visit. It was all covered with little birds and pink roses,  something quite new."  "Good heavens! Aunt Selina," I  cried, uplifting my hands in horror.  "My dear, it would suit this room  to perfection," continued Mrs. Carr.  who never paid any attention to my  interruptions, ��������� as she had but a low  idea of my intelligence; "and with it  wo shall want a pretty, fresh cretonne, pink or turquoise blue, with  cupids���������appropriate to the joys of  Hymen���������eh, Mr. Curtis? Then we  must turn out these old-fashioned,  uncomfortable chairs, and replace  themwith some nice low well-stuffed  sofas, and hang some pretty water-  colors on the waits. Wo shall make  it the brightest and plcasantest room  in the house. Now, do give me  carte blanche, Mr. Curtis. I am sure  you would be charmed with tho effect."  George Curtis looked helplessly at  me.  "If Freda wishes it "he began.  "I wish it! Not for, worlds!" I  cried. "Why, aunt, this room would  be utterly spoilt if it were altered.  It is quite charming as" it is."  "Freda, you never had any sense!���������'  answered my aunt, with a sigh of  despair. "Mr. Curtis, I know, quito  agrees with me; but you were always  an obstinate child, and brought up  _jn_ the wilds of the country, as you  have been, and with your poor fatlv-7  er, too, always running his head  into things. Ah! yes, I know, of  course, Mr. Curtis, that he is very  clever, and all that; but neither  Henry nor my niece, are in the least  able to take caro of themselves. It  is a good thing I am able to conic  down and see after things a little!  Now, Mr. Curtis, let mo go upstairs  and look through the bedrooms."  The rest of tho houso   was    gone  over.

When at length wo woro in the  carriage again on our way homo, ^is  we drove out through thc lodge  gates, Aunt Selina turnod round to  mo and said solemnly, with impressive fervor;  "Fredorica Clifford, you ought to  go down upon your bended knoos and  thank God night and morning, for  giving you such a husband, and such  a house!".

Papa has gone to Eddington.  Aunt Selina has driven into Norbor-  ough upon a shopping expedition. I  have a letter from Delia in my pocket, which I mean to read over again  presently. It Is a long letter, and  tells as that abe ts going abroad  immediately for three months, and  wishes I was not such a fool as to  marry, as then I could have gone  with her. I wish so too. Three  months abroad with Bella would be  infinitely preferable to an indefinite  period at. home with George Curtis.  Furthermore Bella tells me she will  writ������ again from Paris, and begs m������  to make use of her houso whilst she  is away if I want to be in London.  It is this portion of Mrs. Thistleby's  letter I intend to read over again  from my couch under tho haystack;  but I am very idle, and I cannot  rouse myself sufficiently from my reverie, even to tho extent of putting  my hand into iny pocket and taking  the letter out of it.  ���������I,lie quite still on my back with  my arms folded into a pillow behind  my neck.and my eyes cast up to the  blue sky straight over my head.  It is one of those lovely days which  ono gets sometimes at the end of  October, warm as summer, and still  and balmy. Thero is hardly a cloud  in tho sky, and a lazy little breeze  comes softly sighing up from the  west, that just stirs the hair upon  my forehead with a soft, sleepy flutter. There are all sorts of sweet  scents about me���������a scent of freshly-  turned earth from a ploughed field  hard by, a scent of ripe apples from  the orchard beyond, a scent of hay  from tho rick behind me, and then  ���������all at once, a scent of what  does not appear at first to  possess any rais'on d'etre���������a scent inappropriate, unromantic, unlovely!  yet which to a man's nose is ever refreshing, to a woman's eminently  suggestive���������tho scent of a freshly-lit  cigar. "**  This inexplicable odor, totally for-  eign as it was to the surroundings  in, which it suddenly developed itself,  caused me to spring rapidly from  the completely horizontal attitudo  into the partially recumbent. I sat  up.  A shadow camo round thc -jtirner of  tho hayrick and lengthened itself  across the short grass at im*- feet.  "You don't look surprised to seo  me," said Paptain Thistleby, as he  seated himself leisurely by my side.  "I am not. I knew you were com-  ing.  "How so?"  "I smelt you," I,answered gravely,  with a corresponding upward sniff of  my small nose.  He laughed softly after his wont���������  a littlo low laugh that had a peculiar fascination  .for mo;  it    6aid    so  little, yet meant so much.    He con-     *  templated the end of his cigar for  a  ���������moment,-and-then-replaGed_it_in_his   mouth.  For an instant we were both si"-  lent. Swiftly my thoughts traveled  back to that blessed day at Scacliff,  when ho had como unexpectedly as  now, down the garden steps behiud  me, and had sat, as now,,at my feet.  I remembered with what a queer feeling of dismay I had realized that ha  was to be my companion^through tho  day, and thon how rapidly tho fascination of his presence had wrought  upon me, until ere the day was ended I had learned to love him,  And since then how many nights  had I not fallen asleep with his name  on my lips? How many days had I  not awakened with his imago boforo  my eyos? And yet ho seemed further-^  miles further from mo here than he  had dono at Soacllff.  Evidently his thoughts, too, had  traveled back to the flrst day of our  acquaintance, for his noxt words  woro an allusion to it.  "I am not going to throw it away  though," ho snid, in allusion to tho  cigar. "You liko smoko, you know;  you told mo so at Soaclill. Do you  remember?"  "I do not remember any of tho  silly things I said to you at Soacllff;  it is so long ago," I answorod, looking away from him.  "Ah! I wish I could forgot them  ns easily, By-tho-way, what an unkind mossngo that was you sont mo  by Bella tbo morning you wont  away,"  "You wore vory lazy," I said,  laughing out of sheer gladness of  heart; for tho landscape seomod to  bo fairer, tho sunshine to bo brighter,'and tho sky bluer, since he had  come to my sido. "Why did you not  got up to say good-bye to mo then?"  "Impossible to say," he answorod,  giving me a sldolong glance under  his long lashes. "I cannot remoinbor;  perhaps I was sleepy."

Alb ter tba Octagon Bar, its  Helping the Government.  Now that the civil war is a long -way  in the past it is safe to relate certain  caises of the cutting of red tape which at  the time were "winked at and kept as  quiet as possible. Military routine often  left men without what civilians would  regard as the commonest necessities of  life, and to endure these deprivations  when they were unnecessary was hard  anywhere, and especially so at ."Washington, where supplies were abundant  enough.  One day in the summer of 1801 a Maine  regiment was encamped in Washington.  The rations were poor, and two soldiers,  privates, resolved to see if they could  not get something  etter.  They went, in their uniforms of courst.  directly to the Whits House, and entering by a side door managed to evade the  guardians of the executive mansion. In  oue of the passages they met a very tall  man. They had no doubt it was President Lincoln. They bowed to him, and  he bowed to them, but they said nothing. Their business was not with him,  but with his cook.  They went on and found their way to  the broad kitchen. The cook was there  at work. ,  "Look here!" the Maine men said to  him, "we've sworn to support this'era  government, and fer two weeks we've  ben a-doin it on nothin but salt junk.  Now, if you'd spare us a little of this 'ere  stuff, we think it would put this war  along amazin'lyl"  They selected what they thought  would "go round" among their particular friends at the camp and carried it  off, no one saying them nay.���������Youth's  Companion.  An Awful Possibility.  It is a great deal more sensible to  travel comfortably than to throw away  money for nothing. I would prefer to  have a cabin to myself, even if I had to  travel on a second class ship. I do uot  see why I should have a stranger in my  room. It is a dreadful lottery, and he  is apt. to have very unclean habits; Imagine this in a close, stuffy atmosphere,  filled already "with the odors of the ship  and the stench of the machinery. You  cannot ask a man for a guarantee of his  position. He is apt to belong to the middle class, and think how perfectly horrible it would be to inhabit a room with a  "being who has very uncertain notions  about the complete change of linen every  day and whose rule of cleanliness has  been a tub once a week, on Saturday  night..  ���������"And"thenreven"if-cleanlyrhe-might  not wear the right kind of underclothes,  and he might persist in sleeping in night  robes instead of pajamas, and he might  do a hundred other dreadful things.
