HOW HE REVENOED HIMSELF ON HtB
n v ncNBir.TTA J. Jtr.vnns.
Ficd Tracy owed his sistor Fanny a
grudgo for having discovered nnd brought
to naught his splendid schomo for "scaring
Jenny, tho cook, out of hor wits," by way
of duly observing tho first daj.flf April, and
having nolderiofahrVing"'tho paymont of
thrS'just ttrbtsct himself nbout tho task of
dovlsing n tuitablo modo of settlement.
"I'll nay hor oiT," ho oxclaimcdatlongth,
triumphantly. "I'll wrlto hor a noto ask
ing her to go out riding in tho park, nud
put her beau's namo to It, nnd thon, whon
ehocoincs down to tho parlor all dressed to
kill, I'll Just lot her wait nwhllo, nnd thon
jump up and holler 'April fool 1' and thon I
guess sho'll wish sho hadn't meddled, moan
thing I" nnd as Fred wroto a vory good
hand and bad n "Comnloto Lottor Writer"
to consult, ho succeeded In writing an invi
tation which Fanny, who had novcr soon a
lino of her dlflldout admiror's handwriting,
accepted as genuine and, having dis
patched her answer, sho nwaltod tho ap
pointed hour in a flutter of ploascd ex
pectancy, quilo boyond anything thatFrod
had hoped to occasion, for what could tho
boy know of tho hiddon lovo. thotrombllng
doubts and fears which agitated tho young,
loving heart of his sister ?
Harry Holm was a youug lawyor who,
though ho had fair prospects, had yot to
win his fortune Ho lovod Fanny Tracy
dovotcdly, but had not vonturoa to do
claro his lovo. Tlio dainty mlssivo which
informed him that sho accoptcd his In
vitation with plcasuro, und would bo
ready for tho drlvo at 4 o'clock that af
ternoon, puzzled him at first. Tho idoa
of its being nn April fool hoax ho re
jected at onco. Then ho romomborod that
It was leap year.
"Tho darling!" ho oxelaiinod, fondly ro
perusing tho noto; "sho could not holp
teeing bow I lovo her, and it scorns sho
also saw that I needed n llltlo encour
agement," and how wolcomo tho oncottr
ogement was his beaming countcnanco
told very plainly, whilo ho waitod ior 4
o'clock to como with a degroo of lmpa
tienco which, to say tho least, fully
equaled Master Fred's.
When Fanny entered tho parlor arrayod
for her anticipated drivo, Fred, who was
concealed behind a heavy curtain, could
scarcely restrain his dolight at seeing how
elegant a toilot sho had mado.
"Won't sho ho mad?" bo thought, do
llghtcdly. "All that filing and fussing for
nothing 1 Guess sho thinks she's going to
havo a grand timo by tbo airs sho gives hor
self, and sho docs look kind o' nlco, too,
but sbo'd no businoss to blab."
"Kind o' nice" was a vory brothorllko es
timate of tho frosh and dellcato lovolincsi
of iho young girl, as sho stood thoro flushed
and smiling beforo tho pior glass. Her
dres3 was a rich navy-bluo silk, nnd tho
creamy laco at her throat was fastened with
n ruby brooch. A velvet turban, tho color
of which just matched her dross, crownod
her wealth of shining brown rlnglots, and a
richly-embroidered dolman draped hor
graceful figure. "My I hut she's got hor
self up In stylo though,1' wa3 Fred's montal
comment. "Sco her look at her watch. Ho 1
ho I Don't you wish ho may como, Miss
Fan ? "Why, thoro ho is 1" ho suddonly
exclaimed aloud, as Harry drovo up to
Fanny heard but did not heed htm, for
she, too, had soon Harry and hastoned to
receive him, whilo her brother looked on
in indignant amazement.
"I really hollovo ho likes hor," ho said to
himself. "Woll, if that doesn't boat alii"
Then, n sudden thought striking him, ho
softly raised the sash, slippod through
over tho balcony into tho street.
"Hallo, Jack !" ho said to tbo boy hold
ing tho horec, "what does ho glvo you?"
"Quarter," roplicd his frlond. briofly.
"Woll. theio's a quarter, and a first rato
top besides if you'll lot mo hold him. You
go on; tbo boys nro just around tho cornor."
"All right," and away darted Jack, noth
ing loth, whilo Fred, springing into tho
carriage, drovo off in a hurry.
Harry, glancing over Fanuy's attlro, sug
gested an extra wrap. "For tho wind is
quito l;ecn and I wouldn't havo you tako
cold for tbo world."
"Would you care?" sho quostlonod with a
"If you only know how much I caro
whero you aro concorned," ho answoro3,
regarding hor with an expression which
deepened tho soft color on hor chook and
caused tho whlto lids to droop ovor tho
tcll-talo oyeaas sho turned hastily to ring
for tho required wrap.
With tenderest caro tho warm, bright
plaid was folded tound hor, and thoy wont
out to cuter tho carrlago nnd bohold it was
not thoro, whilo at tho samo momenta
shrill youug voico greeted thorn with "April
fooll Flno day to tako u ridel" aud Fred's
curly head disappeared behind tho ncarost
Fanny, mindful of tho koon oyos upon
her, kept hor tompor it was so sweet a ono
that it would hnvob'ecn a pity to loso It
and thoy ro-ctitcicd tho houso. Tho cur
tain, swaying in tlio brcoe, to veal od tbo
open window, and closing it sho said: "Fred

"Ob, yes. I havo oftou whhod I had a
Tho young girl's lips qulvcrod. "If you
know what n trial ho Is sometlmos," sho
said. "I am so ashamed that ho should
trent you so rudely."
"Ob, novor mind his mischlof," ropltod
tho gentleman, smiling. "You know that
to-day tho boys aro privileged," and thon
bs sho stood near him looking so dis
tressed, ho could not help klsslug away
tho bright drops which trcmblod on hor
dark lashes, aud somohow nolthor gave
another thought to Ma9tor Frod until a
half hour later his clear voico, full of glco,
camo up through tho opon register from
tho room below, whero ho was holding
forth to Bridget nnd her long sull'orlug
"Tell you what, you novor saw two
folks look bo foolish in all your lives.
Tho idea of tholr gottlug tlio host of mo I
I guess thoy found out bottor."
"An' whore's tho carriage?' iuqulrod
"In tho stable, where it bclones. I
know that team and took it straight
"But, Master Fred," remonstrated Jonuy,
"you shouldn't oughtor havo troatod tho
gentlcinau liko that. You'll catch It whoa
your ma hears about It."
"No, I won't, uoithor. What businoss
had ho got to como poking along just thon
lo spoil tho fun? You boo, sho thought
he'd asked her to rldo, and when ho found
hor nil ready to go, I s'poso ho would ifho'd
only had a horso aud carrlago I lie I ho!
hoi hal ha I"
Fanny lifted her head from hor lovor'a
thouldcr. "That dreadful boy I " sho ex
claimed. "Harry, didn't you wrlto this? "
and sho drow tbo noto from her pockot and
ehowed It to him.
"No, my dearest," ho replied. "Only
this morning you seemed so far away from
mo that I should not have vouturod "
"Thon what did you think," sho inter
rupted, hiding her blushing faca with loth
hands, "when you received my noto? "
"I thought," ho answered, drawing hor
mora closely to him, "that my darling had

It is wonderful, says a writor in tho
iYotMeiice Sunday Pren, what results in tho
way of cosy homos can bo obtalnod In tho
most unpromising quarters and with tho
most lnoxponsivo adjuncts whon n tasteful
and skillful hand directs matters. Hohso
keeping as well as ojicythlcg 'olso canTJo"
iimriiiilcd, rciVucdand boautiflod, Tho dis
ngrccablo features of it, tho fuss and flurry
and clatter which woro onco constdorod a
necessary part of it by many of tho rush-and-hurry
order of housekeepers, havo boon
thoroughly ollmlnntcd by tho needs of this
big city, whero spaco Is moro valuablo than
I havo a frlond whoso llttlo homo of throo
rooms Is moro oxqulslto In its atmosphoro
of refined comfort than any elegant man
sion lover entered. Sho "duo3 hor own
work," for that is ono of tho boautios and
pleasures of tlio condensed systom of house
keeping no servant to bring dlsordor into
tho llttlo bower ot homo under protonso of
"doing tho work." Tho "work" In this
caeo isn't difficult, becauso, although sho
nnd her big son, who occupy nil throo
rooms, have every comfott thoy need, bor
ability to plan unerringly nud execute skill
fully nnd speedily is so great, nnd tho con
veniences for such n stylo of living so
numerous here, that tho actual labor is only
enough to Interest her. Being a porsou of
lino education, much culturo nnd extra
ordinary tastc,whon riches took unto thorn
eclvcs wings nnd flow away, sho know how
to rob Poverty of his external hldcousness.
Only nn artist could so effectively reconcile
theso two mortal enemies, Beauty nud
Tovcrty, and got eood sorvlco from both.
But I must toll you how my frlond's
homo of thico rooms is arranged. It is tho
cntitn top floor of a houso, not a flat. Tho
largest room is tho sitting-room and hor
own bed-ebnmber, tho Inovitablo and some
what ornamental upright foldlug bod
doing heroic duty ns a mediator botwoon
comfort aud "looks' sako." Tho floor is
carpeted with fresh andprotty colored mat
ting, with a bright rug in tho middlo.
Thero aro soft, cream-colored curtains, inex
pensive but most tastofully bandod and
looped with warm-tinted satin and ribbons,
Thero aro odd hits of furniture that fit
well in odd places, a fow easy chairs, and a
good broad, comfortnblo lounge. Thoro Is
n small Eastlakc book-caso full of books;
thero aro a fow, n vory fow, good plcturos,
nnd a smnll number of ornamonts. Tho on
the furnishings of tbo room would soil for
n song, as tho saying is, but ovorythtug Is
so Immaculately clean and arrangod by such
n deft and tasteful hand, that tho effect is
that rf perfect harmony, swcotnos3 and
cbccrlncss. Tho walls aro paporod with
palo yellow and cream colors, which light
up day or night, and add to tho summory
atmosphcro which is a part of that room
winter or summer,
Tho second largo room is divided into two
compartments by means of tho usoful and
picturesque porticro. Ono half Is tlio son's
bedroom, which is as dainty as a doll's houso;
the other is converted Into a kltchon, which
might bo mistaken for a mimic cook-room,
so tidy and ordorly aro all Its belongings.
Its mistress has an oyo to ventilation as
well as to other things. Tho cooking is all
dono on a gas stovo handsomo enough to
adorn a parlor, and loud smells of fries and
broils aro unknown thoro.
Tho third room a narrow ball-room,
which somo housekcopors would scarcely
know what to do with Is convortod Into
a dining-room, so wonderfully attractivo
that ono novor alts down In it without
marveling that human ingonulty could
bring such a plcturo of comfort and beauty
ont of such mcagro materials. And tho
meals that aro spread thoro, though al
ways simple, aro oxqulslto, combining tho
perfection of cooking with tho daintiest
serving. And it is all dono without auy
appearance of fuss or worry. Tho big son
has bcon taught how to holp in various
ways, and this llttlo homo, kept up on a
minimum of money and a maximum or
fklll, is an cxamplo of tho fact that a
homo rests not upon a solid monetary

In view of tho provalonco of lung dlsoasos, n

says that Imperfect Inspiration Is at tho bot

Iho patient to swoll out tho whole chest full
and round by a doop respiration, olovatlng
and throwing back tho shoulders; aud thon,
whon bo has got Into his lungs tbo last atom
ot nlr possible, to hold It In tightly tor n

every atom of It It ho possibly cau by forcible
expiration, drawing tbo Bhoulders forward
and pressing In tlioclieBt to tho smallest pos
Blble coin pans, thus throwing out almost all
ot tho rente mil air, aud all this through the

tako half a dozen or moro such forcod respira
tions n dozen times a day," said tho doctor,
"and ho will eoon double his vital capacity
and rcllovo lilmsolt of bis supposed chest
