lli8 Ilestcr and Miss Frances 'Willctt lived
on tlic very edge of the soborbs. Indeed, tlicir
bonso lay across tbe division line. As the
front door actually opened npon the road that
belonged to Stvansct, Miss Hester considered
that she lived in Swaneet, and did pay licr
taxes there. But Miss Frances's room was in
the back wing of the house, and looked out
npon the bit of Swansctthat had been annexed
to Boston, with the rest of that rccion. She
claimed a preference to living in Boston. She
felt a sense of iirotection in the policeman, and
bad an idea that he rnifibt keep the boys off
their cherry tree, and be a tirra rock in the
case of burglars. Then she thought it would
lie plcaBant to have the nephews come to stay
with them, in order that they might go to a
Boston school, and share the advantages of a
city education in the new brick grammar
school established just over the line. There
was a"back door, with aporch thatopened up
on Boston, as fine as the front door, and Miss
Frances always nsed this it had a bell. Tho
Swansct front door had an old-fashioned knock
er. MiBS Hester did not think so much of these
city advantages. She was not at all afraid of
burglars, and had no idea of being indebted to
a policeman. For many years she had slept
with her front door unlocked. Once when there
had been an alarm of burglars in the neighbor
hood, she had set all tier silver on tbe Droaa
front stair opposite the front door. .
" I don't want to have tiem hunting aronnd
the liouno in tbo middle ot the night I "sue cx
plained; "like as not they would chloroform
Frances, or make her tell where the key was.
I had rather make it easy for them. " She did,
on this occasion, take up to bed with her a
little old-fashioned silver teapot, of a grand-
aunt s of her own name.
" I don t think thoy II miss it, she Baid,
"and there s the Talue of it in tliem new
spoons I gave Frances last Christmas, that
thev are welcome to. "
yor did Misb Hester limit much ot the kcuooi
advantages. She thougnt they were counter.
balanced by having so many schoolboys turn
ed on to the cherry tree. Of course she could
not now let the doors go unlocked, with tho
city lino passing through the house, but she
bad strong bolts put on, and wept around cvery
niglit to see tho wiudow-lastcnings ticrselt.
ot that Miss Hester was at all strung-
minded herself. She believed in a supremacy
of men in certain things; she bad a man to
chop the wood, and buys to take in the coal,
and was very much shocked when she heard
that the little girls in Egypt " took in " the
coal for the Kile steamers. She pnt all her
business matters into the liar-ds of her brother,
having no idea that women could lc expected
to understand about such thiugB. Indeed, she
was thankful that there was a sex that could
pretend to master the complicated system of
banks. Men had invented them, and it they
were willing to wrestle with their intricacies,
she was not one to relieve themof-the burdens
they put npon themselves. She could till In a
check, and Miss Frances could go into town
to cash it-
Miss Hester called it " going into town.
Miss Frances spoke of such an excursion as
going down town. It Miss Hester ever
did go into town, it was a matter of pray r
and fasting the day beloro. aha rose early,
had steak for breakfast, gave Hatty her orders
tho night before, and would have made her
will, if it had not already been signed and
scaled. But it was long sinco she had been
into town. Poor Miss Ulster, she was a little
blind, and very absent-minded, and the last
time, on her return, she had mounted into tho
back of an express-wagon, taking it for the
horse cars, and had not discovered her mis
take till she came to band out her ticket to
the astonished expressman, while lie stopped to
lift off a trunk from tho walk at Cambridge
port. Of course it would not do for Miss Hester
to go into town alone again, and she never wes
willing to go with a guardian. She liad always
been the head of their little family. It was
she who had tho property, for it was left her
by the grand-aunt Nho60 name she bore, and
whose silver teapot she valued. She was will
ing to share this fortune with her sister, but
she would not give her the responsibiliiy of it.
'I here was tho trouble of paying tho taxes.
Frances was " a young thing, " at least ten
years younger than herself, and what could
slio do with taxes and rents r
Miss Frances had been called "Fanny"
once. Indeed, the nephews and nieces called
her aunt Fanny now, forshe was their favorite
aunt. She always had cherry tarts for them,
and jams of all kinds, and always happened to
have just been baking hard gingerbread. Then
she conld guess conundrums, and aunt Hester
bated to be bothered with them.
But tho last thing that Miss Hester would
have expected of Miss Frances (slio'ncvcr her
self called her "Frances" or left off tho "Miss"
till after the servants were in bed), the last
thing that could enter her head was, that Miss
Frances should think of voting !
Miss Frances tried to explain to her that,
there was a new law, by which women were
permitted to vote for members of the school
committee. In rain she explained that she
never was nor could be a Woman Suffrage
woman, but she had been in to visit tho new
school-house, and she was interested in tho
"It is a privilege," pleaded Miss Frances,
"that I ought not to neglect. I have heard you,
time and again, scold Herpian Willctt for not
voting, and on this very question, you have
tnld him he ought to be ashamed of himself
that he did not go and vote.for decent, respect
able committee men."
"Because a man, especially a young man,
has nothing better to do. than vote," replied
Miss Hester. "It is just what they are equal
to. You have better things to occupy your
time with. This very minute you might be
Eliding out whether tho6e Norfolk strawber
ries, that man is crying at 15 cents a box, aro
xvoi th preserving. If the jam is short next
winter, I don't believe your nephew or the
next generation will thauk you, even if vou
have chosen a Moses in the school com
" Why should I vote for a Moses on the com
mittee? asked Miss Frances, laughing, "why
not some sensible woman, you or Mrs. Sturtc
vant. Miss Frances ran off to the strawberry
man to avoid Miss Hester's wrath. But Miss
Hester knew it was hopeless to argue ; Frances
did always have her own way, after all, and
thero wero other obstacles in tho path more
annoying than Miss Hester's objections. In
deed, these obstacles wero something of a red
rag for Miss Hester, and roused even in her
an active interest in the question, which be
fore had disgusted her, shall Miss Frances
volo? Certainly, if Miss Frances wanted to
vote, and the law said she might, why Bhouid
she not? Some of the newspapers said she
must have her name i egistercd directly, if she
wanted to vote in December. Others said she
could not be registered till sho paid her taxes.
But'slie could not pay her tax till she had
been assessed before September 15th, or other
authorities said, bat she could not be register
ed till after then. Then should she vote in
Swansct, or in Boston I Miss Hester thought
slio ought to vole in Swansct, and accompanied
Miss Frances on a visit to tho town-clerk to
inquire about the law. But when she found
tho town-clerk he declared he could not tell
when Miss Frances ought to bo assessed, or
whether she ought to be assessed before she
was registered, er if it would do to wait till
the fall, or where she ought tobe registered, and
said, ".Maybe they d know ot the city ball.
Miss Hester indignantly pulled her sister out.
"If he's such a born fool, there's no sort of
use in encouraging him to think you II patron
ize bim so far as to vote in awanset. lou are
right- Km are living in Boston, and we
might as well go into the city hall to inquire
about the voting." It was necessary to have
answers to these questions soon, for it was
now June, and Miss Frances was to accom
pany her neiccs to the seashore, way down on
Fassamaqaoddy, in Maine, and they would not
be back till October. Then father and mother
were going abroad, and aunt Fanny was to
matronize the girls iu this quiet seaside place.
It was true that she must bo assessed before
September 15th, it must be done tiis very
week, as the next week she would be gone for
Some friends of Miss Hester s were coming

a small and agreeiblo little scale that i

'Alchemy and Chemistry.
LECTTBK BEFORE THE ACADEMY oi SCIXXCES
BT TOOT. BOLTON, or TRINITY.
The winter course of seven lectures beforo
the New York Academy of Sciences, at Ni
12 West Thirty-first street, was inaugurated
recently by Prof. H. Carripgton Bolton, of
Trinity Uollege, liartiora, wno aiscusaea me
subject of alchemy and chemistry, illustrating
bis remarks witu ine siereopucon. J. no smau
lecture room of the Academy was filled with
ladies and gentlemen, mostly members of tho
Society,, who listened with intelligent appre
ciation to a very interesting lecture. The
BDeaker traced the origin of chemietry t
alchemy, and gave a long list of names of
those who bad been identified with the early
days oi alchemy, lie also presented the port
raits',' through" the.stercopticon, of many who
had been "distinguished in their search for the
philosopher s stone and the elixir of life, with
those of a later day, who had placed chemistry
on a Bcieuuuu uanis.
The lecturer began by saying that accordin
to an ancient proverb, alchemy was an art
begun in labor, continued in deceit and ending
in penury. It had also been held to be the
father of chemistry. It had been enveloped
in superstitions and unaccountable phenomena
The doctrines ot toe alchemist had been .con
Bidered akin to tho black art. The search for
gold was the stimulating power which impel
led the ancient philosophers in their costly ex
periments. The philosopher's stone was also
the obiect of their search. This mythical sub
stance had been described as a solid body of
the color ot a ruuy, transparent, flexible, and
yet as brittle as glass. Ripely, the English
alchemist, gave an account of various acids
with which he had experimented, together with
salts, lie was something more than- a necro
rnancer, nd warned his disciples acainst
certain elements, but failed to give an account
of the result of his efforts, winch he claimed
had been successful. The urst written word
of alchemy proceed from Arabic sources. In
the eighth century, when the Arabians had
made tlicir Eastern conquests, they cultivated
philosophy, art, literature, and tho sciences,
and laid the foundation of chemistry. The
lecturer produced a portrait of Gaba, an emi
nent Arabian alchemist, which he miormei
the audience could not by any means be
correct likeness, na at the time in which he
lived it was against the religious faith of the
Arabians to copy the human face. Gaba was
followed by manv of his own race, who be.
came also eminent in chemistry. They defined
chemistry as tho scicnc of combustion. Al
bcrtus Magnus, born in 1193. was a Dominical
monk who devoted himself to medieval science,
astronomy, alchemy and necromancy. Ho
died in 1232. Finding that his ecclesiastical
duties, interfered with the pursuit of science
ho resigned his sacred office, and gave himself
up to Ins art. lie was Baid to bo creat
magic, (.reater in philosophy, but ereatest in
theology. "Others were accounted great alchem
ists in their time. To t lammel is attributed
tho art of making gold out of baser metal
secret which he claimed to have discovered
about noon on January 17, 1314. Pharaselsus
introduced chemical elements into the scionce
of medicine, and claimed that the province ol
cnemisiry anu aicuemy was not to discover
gold, but to compound medicines for the cure
ot disoascs. Hermes irisiuegistus first taught
tuu jvj I'uunn writing, astronomy, mainemat
ics.'aud other science. Some emblematical
pictures were exhibited by the lecturer signi
fying the fusion of metals. A wolf devouring
a King signified the fusion of antimony with
gold. A King on his throne swallowing his
son stood for tho fusion of gold with some
baser metal, the use of tbe blow-pipe and
other methods of tho ancients showed that thv
wero familiar with many processes now em
ployed. Among other pictures shown was one
representing the magician in art, with the
King, his patron, and the dignatarics of the
court. Another represented the interior of a
laboratory in the sixteenth centurv. in whir
was shown tho process of the distillation of
vapors. In ancient times chemical science ex
isted side by sido with tho superstitions of
In the pursuit of the mysteries of alchemy
epmo experimenters throw off the trilling decep-
uuim surrounding i ne art and devoted them
selves to tho legitimate pursuit of chemistry.
The writings of John Becker wero referred to
and his picture was shown to the audience.
Ho was born iu 1G35. His father was a learned
Lutheran clergyman, who died when John was
very young about the closo of the ThJrtv
Year's War, leaving his son an inheritance of
poverty. John liecker connected all known
chemical, facts, and deduced from them oue
general principle. Joseph Priestley was bom
in 1733, noar Leeds, England, and dove.!oped
a taste for science and languages at a very
early ago. Ho mastered Latin, Greek, Hebrew,
French, Italian, and the Chaldee, Syriac, and
Arabian languages. Ho studied for tho min
istry, and for recreation turned to natural phil
osophy and chemistry. He discovered a num
ber of gasos, such as oxygen, nitrons oxide,
hydrochloric acid, aud others. He did much
to advance the science of chemistry, and to
strip it of Ihemyslorios which had formerly
surrounded it. In concluding his remarks the
speaker said that alchemy was worthy of free
recognition for what it had done. Alchemists,
through their researches and experiments, bad
conferred lasting obligations upon posterity.
They had accumulated a miss of evidence
without which later investigators would havo
labored in great difficulty. He thought tho
