I determined to bring things to n crlsl*
with Paulo Brown nt the forthcoming
Masquerade. I purchased a handsome ring
and got myself up as Romeo in n stylo
that would have caused the hearts of tbo
Montagues to swell with pride, aud those
of the Capulets to burst with envy.
"How stunning Smith looks!'' I heard
more than once whispered as ! roamed up
Bind down In search of Pattio. Hut Pattio
wasn't there, or, if she was. her disguise
was too complete to be penetrated. As I
Walked anxiously about my intention was
attracted by tbo most piquant of shepherd
esses, whose movements betrayed a per?
plexity equal to my own. As she passed
her steps faltered.
"Pardon me. sir. I feel faint," she
^murmured, resting her band upon my
arm, as if for momentary support.
"Allow me to conduct you to the open
air," I answered. "It is quite suffocating
Sho thanked me gracefully and assented,
explaining that she was a stranger and
bad become separated from her friends.
Tho cool air revived her, and after a
short walk through the grounds her
strength and spirits scorned entirely re?
Hor conversation was vivacious nnd
witty. Put when sho came to talk of the
moonlight nnd flowers nnd poetry I found
that In tho field of sentiment she could
beat Pattio two to one. In fart, I couldn't
help thinking how tame Pattic's rhap?
sodies, over which I had boon wont to go
into such ecstasies, would sound in .n
parison with the transcendent outbursts
of the little shepherdess.
In n retired nook, almost bidden by the
shrubbery, wn found n rustle seat, of
which wo took possession, feeling, br feign?
ing to feel, weariness after our walk.
The moon shone out In unclouded maj?
esty, and beneath her radiance the flow?
ers nnd blossoms which surrounded us,
gonmicd with dowdrops, bloomed with a
brightness which tho more ambitious god
of day might well havo given half bis
glory to witness.
And how tho little shepherdess Im?
proved tho occasion! If Luna, female as
sho is, had stopped In her course to listen
to tho enchanting flattery lavished upon
ber, I'm sure it could have hardly been ac?
counted a miraole.
"Pray remove your mask," I ventured
to say at last?first laying aside my own.
"I must look upon tho faeo that mirrors
thought so divine."
"I fear you will be disappointed," sho
replied "Still, I hnvo nothing to dis?
guise, and if you will dispel tho illusion
under which you labor the punishment bo
The features sho oxpnsed wore of sur?
passing loveliness, .lust .dark onough to
entitle her to be culled a brunette, her com?
plexion bad that pearly transparency of
which tho purest of blonds can rarely
boast. Ilor eyes sparkled like diamonds,
nnd yet were soft as a gaze lie's. Tho con?
tour of her bead and face was faultless.
I fairly lost my reason. So the reader
will think whan I relate that without
further ceremony I threw myself on my
knees to th e no small detriment of 1-tomco's |
finest hoso, and, producing tho ring I bad
purchased for Pattio,I incontinently placed
It on tho shepherdess' engagement linger.
I entreated her to wear it for the sake of
ono thenceforward doomed to bo hor slave,
and who sought no other boon than that
of dying of unrequited lovo.
Heaven knows to what pltoh of absurd?
ity I should havo gone bad not the, llttlo
shepherdess, who seemed not unmoved by
my appeal?-indeed sho turned aside her
head and fairly shook with some sort of
emotion?interrupted mo with the excla?
?'^Stay?thero is one of my friends."
I spntflffJlQ my foot, but not before I bad
Imprinted ono kIks upon ficrlius and clasp?

As I turned, I stood confronted by a
flerco looking brigand, who, too, was in a
tremor of emotion. I laid my hand upon
my sword. Perhaps he was a rival. As
tho thought flushed upon mu 1 felt
aroused within mo all the rancor of the
ardent houso of Montague, and had the
stranger so 1)1 nob as " bitten his thumb"

Like an awakened prodigal, I resolved
to arise and go unto Pattio and havo it out

"So was Cousin Charley," said Pattio,
with a roguish twinkle in her eye.
"Cousin Charley?" I repeated. "1

"No," replied Pattio. "Ho only came
yesterday to pay us a short visit. You
can't imagine how handsome ho is I"

BABY DRESS REFORM.
SUCCESS OF MRS. BERTHA JANET'S
Her Heart U a> Touched by tlie Crude and
Cumhontoine Claikrt entii Which Cantom
Had Prescribed for Infants Common
SeiMO Lny.-ites lo> Itemed) tin- Evil.
Mrs. Bertha Janet Gunn, the in?
ventor ot the infant's dress reform, is
a sweet-faced, gentle-mannered little
woman, not resembling in the slightest
our ideal woman of affairs. When
seen in her homo she talked pleasantly
of her work, but seemed surprised that
any one could speak of her Invention
as other than the most natural thing
in the woi Id.
"Why. It seems remarkable to me
that soiuo oik hadn't thought it out
long ago," she said in answer to her
visitor's question as to what llrst g ive
her the idea. -Just thir.R of all these
years and years that mothers have
looked upon the daily dressing of their
little ones as a task to be dreaded,
as 'stjnailing time.' Why, the child is
fretted to a frazzle, if it is not in ac?
tual pain. 1 contend with the doctors
that whenever a baby screams there is
something the matter. Aad, believing
there is something amiss with her
child, what mother Is ? that would not
try her utmost to get at the root of I ho
matter? That Is just the way I began.
I war. worried by my baby's screams
when i; was being dressed. At tirst
I tried every method 1 could think of
to shorten the bath. Then I began to
think of its little clothes and contrive
means whereby they could be put on ]
In the shortest- possible time. This led
me to consider and notice each gar?
ment separately, and I soon began to
sco how uncomfortable some of them
must be. A heavy diaper, f<u- in
etauce, which always holds the child's
legs bowed out. or the flannel belly
band which la pulled so tightly around
its yielding little body and fastened
with pins that are forevor In danger
of slipping out and sticking Into its
delicate flesh. I began to think of a
baby's whole wardrobe as barbarous,
and sot to work to try to improve
them one garment at a llmo. Of
course my object was to make my own
baby comfortable, and, selfishly, I nev?
er gave other children a thought.
"After moving to the east?I form?
erly lived in Ohio- I received a letter
from a cousin asking me to send her
some patterns of liyglonic buby
clothes. If such articles were to be
had. 1 looked around and ciiuUl find
nothing that 1 considered as good aa
my own baby's clothes; so I thought:
'Why shouldn't 1 cut a sot of patterns
of my own and solid them to her?"
Later I did tho same thing for several
friends, and finally began to think It
might be a good thing for other chil?
dren in whom I felt no personal Inter?
est, and at the same time furnish me
a means of support. At that time I
was supporting myself and child.
"As 1 hud no capital, 1 began in a
very small way, furnishing sets of pat?
terns and making layettes to order.
My work gave satisfaction*and moth?
ers, seeing the wlstlom of such gar?
ments, recommended mo to their
friends. In that way my custom in?
creased and my system became well
known. Now I have orders from ev?
ery state, in the Union and from several
foreign countries, I employ several
sewing women to da my stitching and
a number of expert, embroiderers,
while I havo my patterns manufac?
tured. My layettes, which are only
made to order, I always do the cutting
and stamping of myself, and personal?
ly examine every garment before it is
sont out. Often, wTiile mothers take
pleasure In making their own baby
clothes, 1 cut and stamp the sets and
have them hasted l.p, so that the maJK
ittg and embroidery Is much sttnpll
tled. My I nit tarns come In sets of fif?
teen, anil are draughted to lit into
each other, so they can be put on the
child all together. In that way. you
will see, it is only necessary to turn
the child <mce white dressing, nnd all
those clolbes hang from the shoulders.
Another point about my system which
mothers highly approve?there dre no
pins, and every part of the body la
"What do I consider tho best ma?
terial for diapers?" repeating the
question asked by her visitor. "Well,
I I use a fine grade of stockinet, so, of
course. I consider that tho best. But
1 think the shape of the garment hits
much to do with Its comfort. Tho
old-fashioned square which was drawn
so tight over the seat und pintied to
tho bund I believe not otiiy caused
chaffing, but, lu many Instances, ojtfck
cd legs. My diaper Is cut ou the bins, I
so that the seat in large and baggy,
and there is very little cloth to fold
between the legs, so the little logs can
lie straight out. Of course my system
required much thought to perfect it,
:vnd, undoubtedly, I would never have
thought of dress reform for infants
and children had I cot had the neces?
sity brought home to me by my own
ehi 1 d, so you see, after all, my success
is but another proof of the old adage.

AMERICAN BEEF IN ENGLAND
bold by Itutclier* lor the Prime English or
s. ot. li Product.
That's a line cut of beef. Where
docs it come from'.'"
The Chelsea butcher eyed me
"Never mind," I said; "you can tell
me the truth Just as well as not. I
don't hoy beef in London, und I
won't peach on you. It's prime-looking
beef. Where does it hail from?"
"To tell you the truth, sir?but I
don't breathe such things along King's
road; It 'ud never do, sir?but to tell
you trie truth, that's American beef.
Y'sre, if we sells It for Ameri?
can beef, we keeps It; but if we
sells It as English or primo
Scotch, It goes. The best prime
roast beef we get in London to-day
is raised in America. If It comes over
on the hoof it ain't so good unless It
gets three months' English feed on tills
side. Sometimes when it comes in
cold storage it's too ripe and must bo
sold short off the day it's exposed,
else It falls In flavor. But when it's
cured right and shipped prompt
there's none better?only," with a
shake of tils curly head and a keen
wink, "only It's prime English roast
or Scottish, sir."
King's road Is a long lane in Chel?
sea ii thriving, bustling thorough?
fare that supplies southwest London
with the necessaries of life. I spo^e
to i very butcher in a mile's stroll, and
when they understood I was not a
London purchaser they told me, to a
man, that the most and the best of the
beef sold was American?born, bred
and dead. In Paris I met not long
ago a young English woman.
"Do you really have any good meat
in America?" sho asked.
"The reason I ask," she continued,
"Is because the American beef we buy
In London Is such awfully poor stuff,
don't you know. Not many of the
tradesmen sell It, but those who do
find It so very difflcut to compete with
