"I can't help it if ha is," nddod the
youiij: lady, ungraciously. "Tell him
l'vo pone to tho city. Jly cousins
haven't invited mc, but they'll ho jjlad
to boo mo, I'm sure."
Bo, wlion Now Yciu's Day arrived,
.Myrtlo put on her best dress and ulstor
nnd started for tho city. Arriving at tho
Embcrsoiis' house alio was bIiowm into u
little forlorn wnitiiig-room, whllo I'rls
cilia, tho servant, announced her name.
Tho door of tho loom was njnr, nnd
bIio could hear distinctly tho following
conversation from tho parlors hoyond,
whdro her mint and cousins wcro evi
dently located. Tho maid began by
"It's your cousin, Jllss Eleanor nnd
Miss Louisetto," said she. "A young
lady from Cedar Mountain'"
"Good gracious 1" ciied llleanor; "that

"What on earth can possibly havo
brought her hero just now of all times
In tho world 1" oxcliilinod Louisetto.
"What shall wo do, mamma J" said
"Do?" eharply retoitcd Sirs. Ember
Bon, who was in black velvet and Imita
tion diamonds. "Why, make tho best of
it, of course. If a girl will"
But horo Myrtlo, who folt with a sort
of pang that thoro was something dis
honorable in listening to this coifvorsatlon
which was bo evidently not intended for
her cars, drew asido tho ciimsnn damask
folds and presented horsclf, with deep
dyed chocks and sparkling ovos.
"Aunt Loulso," said alio, ''it Is T I And
If I had supposed for a moinont that my
visit would bo inconvenient "
"Oh, my dear, don't think of suoh a
' thing," cried Mrs. Emborson, mantling
her faco In artificial smiles. "Girls, como
hero and kiss our dear Matilda Marian
how very awkward of mo to forgot
your name I "
"Myrtlo," said tho girl, coloring
deeper than over. Eleanor and Louis
otto kissed her effusively, but had
scarcely time to lisp out their congratu
lations when a party of perfumed, whlto
kidded exquisites were ushorcd in by
tho smllinc -'Prlscllla. Mrs. Emberscm
"Como upstairs, my dear," said sho:
"I will givo you a cup of tea in your
own room. ,0f courao you won't caro
for1 tho bustlo and confusion of tho par
lor on such a day as this."
Aud poor Myrtlo, who had como cx
picssly to share tho delights of hor
'cousins' New Year's reception, was led
Off Into the upper pait of tho house,
scarcely ablo to repress hor tears of
mortification nnd cintmiinssment.
Tho looms up Btahs wore chilly aud
"uncomfortable, for it was a cold day and
tho'registers .had boon turned off, to es
tablish a moro bummor.llka atmosphere
In tho parlors. Mrs. iiitnDcrson, after
outrcatlng Myrtlo to maka horsclf per
fectly nt liomo, nnd promising to send
her a cup of tea in n fow minutes, slipped
away andthero tho poor girl sat, shiver
ing, faint and unrofreshed.
"I wonder whero Aunt Loulso could
havo gonol" sho said to herself, at last,
In very desperation. Bho wont ont and
looked over tho head of tba stairway.
Thcro, In tho hall below, waB a stroain
of chattering, bowing, gesticulating young
men to Myrtlo's unaccustomed eyes they
looked moro like ovor-drossed monkoys
than anything clso and Louisotto and
Eleanor wore in tho parjnr doorway.
"You don't sayl" cried one, ovldontly
In response to some word of tho gills'
remarks. "A genuluo country cousin,
"Talks through her nose!" said
nnothcr. "Wears a poke bonnet and a
pink calico gown. Do let us havo a look
at tho curiosity."
, "Not to-day, you wickod thing," gig
gled Miss Loulsotte. "Somo day sho shall
bo brought In to mako you all laugh."
"The idoa of her coming hero on Now
Year's Day, of nil tho days in tho
world," said Eleanor, contemptously.
But Myrtlo stayed to hoar uo moro.
Huirylng back to tho room sho had just
quitted, she tied on hor lint, fohh d tho
little fur-lined sacquo, iu which she had
taken so innocent a pride, about hci, and
catching up her traveling bag, quitted
tho house, rriscllla alouo saw hor go
out, but Pilscilln did not intoiforu,
"Country folks has queer notions,"
said Priscilla to herBelf. "And puihaps
sho is going to tako a walk,"
On tho way sho met tho express wagon
with her trunk. It was but n moment's
work to countermand hor directions, and
in half an hour sho was speeding through
the gllttoring oxpauso of tho winter
landscape on hor way home.
Grandma l'ollett was knitting, as
usual, by tho flro of blazing logs just at
twilight. licsldo her, with his back to
tho door, stood Bruco Garland, tnll,
manly, superbly foimcd as a young
"And you think sho docs not caro for

Grandma I'ollott iu tho ruddy half

When ho was ten foot fioni tlio steer it
jumped up, made a rush lor tho boss liar

Ono long horn went through his clothing,

Frank Marlon, a young man living
with his parents at a farm at Lyndhurst,

bad luck during tho past weok, such as
is not usually crowded into tho lifotime
of an ordinary mortal. Ho has had a

Ho who Is thirsting for fnmo lot him
como to Now York, says the Mail and
Utprm, put up at ono of tho loading
hotels, nnd then get on good touns with
tho clork who has chargo of Its litoraiy
department. When 1 say fnmo I reckon
that ne-wspapci' notoriety counts for
such, That being tho case, the ltjcrary
bureaus of tho hotels have n system by
which fnmo Is easily monufnctuiod.
Thosohmaaus aro now minchmonts to
tho machlneiy of well regulated hotels,
and, consldeiing tho time they havo
been in oporntlou, thoy havo dono 10
markablo worlc. Many a mnn hns gained
thorn, ospoelnlly politicians, nnd a con
spicuous example among tho inttor class
Is Postmaitcr-Gcucral DonM. Dickinson.
What doos a hotoi wont with a llteraiy
bureau? you will probably nsk. Bccau6o
It is tlm best menus possible of advertis
ing tho hotel. Ono hotel having ndoptod
It, tho others wero compelled to do so. f
l no genius who nivontcu tins sysiom is
P. T. Wall, himself one of tho best ad
vertised men In Now York, Ilo is con
nected with tho Ilnllmnu House, and tho
system hns become known among hotel
mon ns "Wall's porfect system." Bo far
as known this is tho only city In which
it is In oporntlou, Tho circumstances
existing hero aio peculiarly favorable to
it. In tho first place, tho Now York
pnpeis havo a great partiality for nows of
tho character usually picked up about
kotol corridors, Besides, this Is tho news
center of tho country, and correspon
dents of out-of-town papers mako n
specialty of this mnttor.
Tho system had got In full working
order about the time of tho inauguration
of President Clovcland; Don M. Dickin
son was then liltlo known outside his
State, except among tho leading politi
cians. For years ho' had been coming to
New York almost every month without
attracting a passing uotlco in tho news
papers. All of n sudden ho bogan to
loom up as a national charactor. Kvory
tlmo ho camo to Now York aomo in
genious story w;ns worked up so as to
give it a news color which would act as
au excuse for a highly complimentary
sketch of tho Michigan statesman. It
was owing to tlio efforts of this buroau
that Mr. Dickinson's namo was men
tioned for Vlco-Prcsldont.
Tho most notablo caso Is that of Myron
Bangs, whoso namo has lccently np
pcared In every Democratic newspaper
In tho land as tho bosom friend of tho
lata Iloscoo Colliding, who had given
10.000 to tho Democratic campaign
fund. Two years ago Mr. Bangs' namo
was hardly known outsldo tho little vil
lage in whlqh ho lives in Central Now
York. Tho literary buroau took hold of
him and to-day ho is ono of tho most
conspicuous Hgures auoutwow ionc.
Nearly avory newspaper has contained
something of Col. W. II. Wilson of
Denver ns ono of tho leaders of tho
Amciican party and tho owner of tho
birch rod which bent bonoath Stonewall
Jackson's weight as ho fell to tho ground
mortally Voundcd. Ho was astonished
when he returned homo and found Unit
'his visit to Now York had made him
famous. "Tho people of my own town,
said tho Colonel, laughingly, "didn't
know I was a great man until thoy
learned it by way of Now York." "Col."
William II. Wado of St. Louis, now ono
of tho best known mon about the resorts
hero, is seldom mentioned by tho papers
of his own city oxcept when thoy cony
what tho Now xotk papers say about him.
lleic ho is known ns a doublo millionalro
and tho man who took tho lost drink with
Francis, tho Democratic candidato for
Governor of Missouri, In ono visit hero
last winter, achieved moro newspaper
notoiiety than ho ever did before, nnd ho
Is now receiving tho benoflt of It. Gon
oral Wm. P. Walsh, ox-mayor of Hot
Springs, now lives here, nnd not a week
passes that two or threo paragraphs do
not appear In tho paper about him. "I
loft Arkansas becauso I wns a plain,
ovory-day citizen," ho says; "but by liv
ing hero at a lending hotel I can bo ono
of tho leading men of tho metropolis of
tho country.' And so It goes.
"It Is likely to becomo gonoral," said
tho father of tho system, lopcntlng my
question. "Yes, in all tho largo cities,
for It pays the hotels hero. Tho average
man is fond of newspaper notoriety, only
ho may differ as to the kiud. It ho is
much of a politician it is a necessity to
him. Of courso wo can only havo mon
written up that havo somo standing at
