THE HOUSEKEEPER'S TALE.
Tho Trouble Brought By a Jealous,
"Oh, yes, Mrs. Lee, I have lived with
them a long time; years before Miss Una
was born. I was maid to Miss Agnes
Lander before she married the 'squire. I
was with her when Miss Una was born,
and I was with her, poor thing, when
she died. Ah, me! Miss Una was six
years old then, and my poor lady made
the 'squire promise to keep me for tho
child; hhc knew I'd be a mother to her.
When the squire married Miss Beatrice
Howe Ikncwwe should havehard times,
for she was a proud piece, just as proud
as she was handsome; though I'm sure
I ucrcr saw any beauty in her bold
black eyes. She hated Miss Una right
away. I knew it the minute I saw her;
I never could think what made the
squire marrv her, with her haughty
ways and evil black eyes. The way tho
men came around her made me sick and
the old 'squire jealous; it served him
right, for he should have known she
only married him for his money, but
men will be fools where there's a pretty
'When Miss Una was sixteen her
father died, leaving her the richest heir
ess in X . The stepmother got but
a third of the propertv, and that only
as long as she was single. Well, inarm,
T never forget tho dar young Alex
Linwood came to tho Hall. It seems
ho knew Mrs. Ainsley when she was
Miss Howe. Since her marriage he had
been on the continent, and of course
when he came home he called to see her,
although not knowing her husband was
dead. I had been dusting in the par
lor, and was standing behind the cur
tain when ho came in. You know what
a handsome man he is now, and at that
time he was no worse-looking. Madame
was standing in the center of the room
when lie came in: when she saw him
the gave him a little cry, and met him
with both hands outstretched, her whole
face lit up till she looked really pretty.
It was easy to sec she loved him, for she
took no pains to hide it. lie was very
much surprised at the 'squire's death,
and seemed very .sorrv- He was not
long there when Miss Una rode
up to the Hall; she always
loved her horse. Dismounting, -he
went into the parlor, not know
ing any one was there. I never saw
her look $o welL Her habit was of
dark-green civet, and fitted her to per
fection; her cheeks were rosy from the
cold air, and her eyes shone like blue
diamonds; the green plume of her hat
contraMed well with her golden braids,
for o know Mis Una's hair was
much lighter then than it is now. I
saw the look of admiration on the
toting man's face when Mrs. Ainsley
introduced them, and I also saw a look
of hatred on madam's face. Alet Lin
wood remained to dinner, and after
that I heard plaving and singing. It
was fully ten o'clock before Alex went
"He came very often aftor that, and
even Mrs. Ainsley saw how much he
loved Una; ho seemed unable to CAist
without her. and but a shorttimu passed
liefore my darling told me they were
engaged One night in summer Alex
and una had been walking in the gar
den, and I was watching them from tho
arlwr, where I sat to catch the cool air.
The moon was so bright that I saw the
glances of love Alex gave Una. At last
he bade her good-night, holding her mi
long in his arms, and kiss
ing her so often, that I thought he'd
never let her go; but he did at last,
gazing after her till she was out of
tight- lie then walked on; tho arbor
wa near the gate, so that he'd have to
pass me. He was very near, when all
at once Mrs. Ainsley stopped before
him; she caught his arm and tid
hoars-elv: 'OK Alex! do you really lot c
that doll-faced girl so much? She can
never love you as I do. I loved j-ou be
fore my marriage, and when you wcut
away f knew you did not care for me,
so I'married 'bquirc Ainsley. I never
was liappy, for I Mill loved you, and
when the" 'equire died and you came
home, I thought that then you would
surely lovo me. O, Alex! let her go and
love me, love me!1 She then knelt
down, and sobbed bitterly. Even I felt
sorry for her. Alex. Linwood's noble
face was very sad, as ho said gently:
" 'Mrs. Ainsley, I am very .-orry for
this; I hardly dare think how I should
foci if Una did not lovo me; you say
'let her go." I can not; she is mv
very life, tho only one I ever loved. 1
beg you say no more. I pity you from
my Iicait, but I have no love togivc.'
He raised her liand to his lips and
passed on without another word. I
heard her mutter:
Ho shall love me; if she were dead
"Her words filled me with alarm, and
after that 1 watched her and Una close
It; all I could discover was that every
Jay my darling grew weaker and paler,
until Alex liegged her to see a doctor,
but sho always said sho did not feelsick.
I called Doctor Grey one day when
madam ta out; he asked Mi.s Una a
great manv questions and then begged
to speak with me alone. When she left
tho room he turned to me and said:
" 'Mrs. Willi, has Mis Una ene
mies?' "Well, marm. the question took mo
by surprise so I told him all about Mrs.
Ainlcy and Alex Linwood.
" ;Wcll.' said lie, slowly, 'I don't want
to arcu-e suspicion ajrainst Mrs. Ains
ley, but I think Mi Una is being slow
"You can not imagine my terror; h
gave mc sonic directions, "told me to
cook every thitur myself for Una, andtc
watch Mrs. Ainsley" You may bo sura
1 kept a sharp lookout, but I never dis
covered any thinj. My darling was no
better, so I told Alex ho had bettci
marry her at once and take her away.
Alex "was nearly crazed at seeing Una so
sickly, and was only too glad to marry
her. So the wedding day was set. The
dav before tho wcddingUna was taken
suddenly very bad, so 1 sent in a groat
hurry for Doctor Grey; when became
Mrs. Ainslev was in the room. Doctor
Grey felt Una's pulse, and then fixing
his eves on madam's face, said:
"Madame, this girl is poisoned. 1
shall call my friend. Prof. Haugc. and
we will hold'a consultation.'
"Mrs. Ainsley turned pale, but, com
posing herself, answered:
" Certainlr. doctor, if you think il
necessary. Sirs. Willis always attend!
Una, and if she is poisoned, I daro saj
she knows it.'
Of course, I was very angry at that,
so I said:
" To be sure I attend Una; but as foi
poison, I guess if Una were gone some
body might get Alex linwood.1
"She turned white as a sheet; the doc
tor thought there would be a scene, jq
noTJCggca mrs .amsicy ro icavc me
room and not mind me. When she was
gone he left some directions, and went
away promising to go for Alex. Ales
camo in half an hour, and the way he
went on was awful; he took her lh h
arms, and cried over her like a babv;
ho would not go away, but stayed up all
night watching her with me.
"About one o'clock Alex insisted
upon my lying down, so I went into
tho adjoining room and sat down be
hind tho curtain. There is another
room opening into this one where the
medicine is kept. I sat facing this
room, ana coma sec it through a slit in
tho curtain. All at once I heard a
noise; looking up, I saw a panel in th
medicine-room slide away, and Mrs.
Ainsley came out with a lantern in her
hand. She went to tho closet and be-
fn rummaging among the bottles,
slipped out of the win
dow, and went into Una'a
room; tho windows open on the balcony,
you know. Alex was standing near the
bed. I pulled him away, whispering;
Wait a minute and you will see some
thing.' I pushed him behind tho bed
curtain and got under the bed myself,
and not a bit loo soon, for just "then
Mrs. Ainsley came in with a phial in her
hand; pouring something on a cloth,
she was about to put it on Una's face,
when Alex caught her hand; sho
screamed and fainted. Alex took both
phial and cloth and laid them away.
"Well, there is not much more to tell.
You know how Mrs. Ainsley got crazy,
jumped out of the window and was
killed; but, lfore that, sheZconfesscd
that she tried to kill Una, thinking il
Una were dead Alex would marry her.
She used to make Una inhale the poison,
always going into the room when Una
slept. Una was a long time getting
well; but six months after Mrs. Ains
ley's death they were married, and a
happier couple never lived. So that is
the story of the Hall just as it happened.
A BETTING MAN.
The Head-I-Wiu ami Tall-Vou-Lose Sort
of a Game Flayed by a Tramp.
A man whose clothes were old, but
whose expression was frank, went into
a restaurant and, addressing the pro
"I have no money, mister, and I am
very hungry. Xow. sir, I want to bet
you one dollar that if you give mc a
meal I will pay you within one week
"I don't" know you," said the pro
prietor, "but I'll go you one just for
The man ale heartily and withdrew.
One week later he entered the restau
rant, and said:
"Well, I'm here."
"So I sec. Have you oorac to pay
"2fo, I have come to tell you that I
have lost the bet"
"Well, then, you owe me a dollar in
stead of fifty cents."
"But where is my money?"
"Well, in regard to that, I want to
bet vou two dollars."
"Name the bet."
"Bet you two dollars that I never pay
you. You've lost, so nowhandmeovcr
There docs not exist any proof of the
fact that the money was paid. Arkan
Took All the Hurt Away.
A little boy and girl, each perhaps
five j ears old, were by the roadside,
this morning, on their way to school.
The boy became angry, and struck his
little playmate a smart blow on the
cheek, whereupon the latter began to
cry, tho big tear-drops filling her bright
blue eyes. The boy looked on sullenly,
a moment or two, and then said, in"a
softened, penitent tone: "Don't cry,
Kntic; I didn't mean to hurt joii,
and I am so sorry that I was bad'and
struck you." The little maiden's face
at onco brightened, like the sun shin
ing tlirough an April day, and she said,
in such soft accents: "V"cll, if you are
sorry you struck mc, Willie, it don't
hurt; j'our saying so has took all thi
hurt away!" and brushing away the
pearly tear-drops, her face was as
bright and seraphic as though lit by a
heavenlv vision of cthcrial loveliness.

ICrni-nincof OIiI Furniture.
Old furniture can lie carefully covered

new, at a very small cost If the shapes

padding with old quilts or wadding, and
with the aid of large, square cushions
they may be made quite comfortable
and presentable. Enameled cloth imi
tating leather wears beautifully, is fifty
inches wide, and less than one dollar a
yard. Cretonnes are cheap and come
in beautiful designs. The materials
needed to work with are: A packing
needle which is quito long and pointed
at both ends a ball of strong twine, a
small tack hammer, some tiny tacks,
a few button mould, gimp and the ma
terial to be used for covering.
Begin at first on a small scale, with a
plain chair and cheap material. Over
the cushion of your chair pin a tough
piece of paper, cut an exact pattern,
making all the pleats and folds required
to make it fit nicely. Then take off
carefully the gimp binding of the chair;
bv placing a screw-driver against tho
sfdc of the tacks and hammering them.
Bruh the chair thoroughly, then pin on
tho new cover, getting it to fit exactly
before fastening it on. This done, nail
it on carefully with the small tacks,
then finish off with a gimp stretched
firmly all round to hide tho edges.
If (ho scat is to be buttoned down in
stead of plain, it will bo rather more
troublesome and difficult work. Take
the buttons off, when the. old cover has
been removed, lay it over the raw ma
terial and cut tho latter carefully out,
making all tho slits and marking with
pins where tho arms are to come, so
that in placing it on tho chair it will not
bo drawn out of place. There arc three
pieces one for tho bottom, one for the
back and the third for tho outside of
back and arm. After placing the piece
cut for tho seat on the chair, fitting it
exactly, begin to button it down. Take
the long needle and thread it with the
strong twine, and puh it from the un
der s.dc of tho chair from the place
which marks the position of the old but
ton through the now covor, ami push
the button on tli needle and twine and
pass the needle down again a short dis
tance from where it was brought up,
pull the twine ery tight and tie it in a
vcrv hard knot." The cover must be
folilcd smoothly by tho buttons. After
the buttons arc'alf on, nail on the cover
neatly and finish with a gimp trimming.
(When enameled cloth is ued the brass
headed tacks arc very pretty for fasten
ing the gimp.) The" back is to be tufted
in the same way. ra on tne ouumc oi

smoothly. turninra little of the material
under to make a firm edge. The gimp
may be sewn on instead of tacked.
If you have an old rocking-chair that
has seen service, it can be made to look
very nicely. If the frame is good, cut
away all "the cane-work, leaving the
holes free; scrub the frame thoroushly
with hot water and soda. When "dry,
cover all carefully with a coat of Berlin
black. Xcxt day polish this with a
black-lead brush." It will look quite
liko ebony. Now proceed to cover it;
sew on to the back and eat with strong
twine, a piece of stout ticking; sew
this as tightly as possible, on this tack
three or four layers of wadding, then
cover with strong mulin. Xor take
the outside cover, which must fit ex
actly, and which you sew on with
Strong thread. Fiuish off vrith gimp

back in same way. A very pretty cover
for a chair of tliis description is made
of the gray table linen such as was used
so much-for tidic. Use four colors of
worsted in working the figures garnet,
yellow, blue and olive green using
only one color on each figure, then coy
er the lines that divide the cattern with
narrow black velvet cat-stitched on the
gold silk, and the chair will be really
very handsome. Mrs. C. S. Fox, in
The Process of Manufacture Employed la
the United States.
Of a total of 200,000 drums made in
this country last year, it is said that
178,000 were manufactured in Gran
ville, Mass. The old-fashioned dram
with wooden barrel, which was formerly
the only kind in the market, is being
rapidly supplanted by the neater and
fighter model with a tin barreL For the
manufacture of the latter, tin of various
rolors is employed, blue and red pre
dominates, thouch the larrrcr auantitv
of tin drums arc made of a brass imita
tion. This tin comes in sheets of two
tizes, 14 by 20 inches and 20 by 28, the
sheets being packed in cases holding
112. The process of manufacture is
thus described: The sheets are first sent
to a knife, which cuts them into various
lengths, from which drums of sizes
tarying from 6 1-2 inches across the
head to thirteen inches are made. This
done, the strips are each punched with
u hole, then secured and tightened to
gether. Hoops are placed on the inside
rims, and the barrel is then ready to re
ceive the sounding "kin. This is gen
erally a sheepskin, which is stretched
tightly across the head above and be
low, and fastened from the outside bv
hoops. These skins are all imported
from Lhcrpool, and cost from $1.75 to
$2.50 a dozen. Previous to using, they
arc stretched and dried by steam in the
winter and by the sun in summer. Be
fore being stretched over the drum bar
rels, they arc once more moistened,
generally in a solution ofpurc water or
slightly "ammoniacal. Then remains
the tightening of the drum-hoops. This
is done either by strings or rods. The
first are stretched diagonally, leather
tigmcncrs oeing inserted to stiUen tho
sound skins. The roils are hooked on
one end and screwed at the other. Of
this latter kind, the consumption is over
six times that of the older-fashioned.
Wooden drums differ but slightly
from the above. The barrels are ren-
erally bass or white wood, occasionally
oak. The stay hoops arc of oak or
beech. Before'the strip of wood can bo
use.!, it need to undergo many pro
cesses, among others being bending,
planing and sweating. The first drums
made used to be Ixiiled in open tanks,
and the limit that could thus be pre
pared daily was less than fifty. Tat
introi! i -lion of machinery anil more
perfivt methods has increased the daily
production so that two thousand drum
pieces is considered nothing more than
Dne man's fair day's work. The log,
usually cut to three feet in length, is
placed ticttveen the teeth of a huge ma
chine, and tha slicing begins. The knife
receives it, and, hs the log revolves, the
piece sliced is received on a wooden
cylinder and then rolled up. Seventy
five thicknesses make one inch of the
'og. If, then, the log is three feet
through, one resolution will yield a
piece nine feet long, and the total
length sliced from the log would extend
over a mile. Cutting machines further
reduce this huge sheet to the desired
length. A core of six inches thickness
is left, which is taken out of the jaws
and split into drumsticks or tenpins.
The veneers arc heated, then bent, and
arc soon ready to be shaped as a drum.
There arc also planing and sandpaper
ing machines, all run by water power.
The strips are put through the bender,
from three to six at a time. The sticks
arc smoothed by rolling in revolving
barrels, the process being continued for
three or four hour. Springfield
NAMES OF BATTLES.
Dutilile Naming of llattlr-I'ieliU by North
ern anil Southern Soldiers.
The conflict of the 14th of September,
1SC2, is called the battle of South
Mountain at the North, and the battlo
of Boonsboro' at the South. So many
battle-fields of the civil war bear double
names that we can not believe the
duplication has been accidental. It is
the unusual which impresses. The
troops of the North came mainly from
cities, towns and villages, and were,
therefore, impressed by some natural
object near the scene of the conflict and
named the battle from it. The soldiers
from the South are chiefly from the
country, ami were therefore impressed
by some artificial object near the field
of action. In ono section the naming
has been after the handiwork of God; in
the other section it has been after tho
liandiwork of man. Thus, the first pas
sage of arms is called the battle of Bull
Kun at the North the name of a stream.
At the South it takes the name of
Manasas, from a railroad station. The
second battlo on the same ground is
called the Second Bull Bun by tho
North, and the Second Manassas by the
South. Stone's defeat is the battle of
Ball's Bluff with the Federals, and the
battle of Lccsburg with the Con
federates. The battle called by General
Grant Pittsburgh Landing, a natural
object, was named Shiloh, after a church,
by his antagonist. Rosccrans called his
first great light with Bragg the battle of
Stone Ilivcr, while Bragg named it af
ter Murfrecsboro', a village. So Mc
Clellan's battle of tho Chickahominy, a
little river, was with Lee the battle of
Cold Harbor, a tavern. Tho Federals
speak of the battle of Pea Ridge, of tho
Ozark range of mountains, and the Con
federates call it after Elk Horn, a coun
try inn. The Union soldiers called the
bloody battle three days after South
Mountain from the little trcani, Antie
tam, and the Southern troops named it
after the village of Sharpsburg. Many
instances might be given of this double
naming by the opposing forces. Ac
cording to the ame law of the unuual,
the war-ongs of a people have always
liecn written by non-combatants. Tlic
bards who followed the banners of the
feudal lords, sang of the exploits, and
stimulated them and their retainers to
deeds of high emprise, wore no armor
and carried no swords. So, too, the
impassioned orators who roused our an
cotors in 1G with the thrilling cry,
"Liberty or Death,' neer once put
themselves in the way of a death by lead
or steel, bv musket-ball or bavonet stab.

Generally speaking, it is safe to dis
credit all big stories, which arc evidently
told for effect and from some sort of
vanity. The man who volunteers to
tell you of his great earnings is usually
not "to be believed. Men who earn
largely arc apt to keep the fact to them
selves. Journalists get fair salaries; as
a rule, as much as other workers in the
same grade do; but $27,000. or f 17,000,
